IN 1998, Newsday’s Associate Editor John Babb — then a news editor — received an award from Newsday staff. The award’s citation said it was being given to Babb, ‘who worked tirelessly, through frustrating times, to produce copy which was enjoyable to read, accurate, and to-the-point.’ “That is the award I treasure most,” Babb, who won two national awards for journalism, said yesterday at a retirement function held at the paper’s offices on Chacon Street in Port-of-Spain.
