Gazette takes 22 awards at state journalism contest

While campaigning in Colorado Springs, President Barack Obama made a stop at the Olympic Training Center. The president and the media all had to take their shoes off to walk on the wrestling mat. I thought it made a unique photo moment when he put his shoes back on. He said that his grandmother would be very proud that he didn't have any holes in his socks.
