Published Oct. 6, 2005

Times staff writer Anne Hull was named Sunday as one of five winners of the prestigious 1994 Distinguished Writing Awards given by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Hull won in the non-deadline writing category for her three-part series "Metal To Bone," which told the story of ninth-grader who held a gun to the head of a Tampa police officer on a dare. Other winners were columnists Joan Beck of the Chicago Tribune and Donna Britt of The Washington Post in the commentary-column writing category; Michael Gartner, editor and chairman of the Daily Tribune in Ames, Iowa, for editorial writing; and Ken Wells, senior writer for the Wall Street Journal, for headline writing.
