Licht wins MNA award

Gabe Licht, editor of the Maple Lake Messenger, recently  earned third place in the photo story category at the 2014 Minnesota Newspaper Association Better Newspaper Contest. "Retiring Old Glory"  showed Maple Lake Boy Scouts and color guards from the American Legion and VFW retiring dozens of worn and tattered American flags at American Legion Post 131. The judges felt Licht showed good emotion and great angles in his pictures.
