TOP SPECIALTY REPORTING:

The Times at Shreveport -- For John Andrew Prime's military coverage. Prime used reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act to probe the cause of two mishaps involving aircraft based at nearby Barksdale Air Force Base, including one that almost ended in a mid-air collision with a civilian airliner over the Mediterranean Sea. Prime's work also included a touching feature that brought home the emotional toll of war on families as their loved ones left for Bosnia.
