Keta Steebs Would Smile


Keta Steebs was special.

I am sure that Keta, who loved newspapers and writing would have smiled at this news.   But I also am aware she would have had some comical comeback about why she was not as important as people make her out to be.  She is still missed when I think mid-week that her column should be appearing in the newspaper.

A Heidi Hodges column honoring the late Keta Steebs, and the Door County Advocate’s team coverage of her death, have been recognized by the National Newspaper Association in its annual Better Newspaper Contest.

The column titled “How Keta Steebs changed my life” won second place in the category of Best Serious Column, and the front-page story “On Her Own Terms” by Warren Bluhm, Ramelle Bintz and Samantha Hernandez received honorable mention under the Best Obituary category.

Both articles appeared in the May 1, 2013, Advocate, five days after the longtime Advocate reporter and columnist died at her home at age 87.
