   Buffalo River Review Publisher Sam Kennedy was recently inducted into the State Ope Government Hall of Fame as the recipient of the “Heroes of the 50 States” award. Following is an excerpt from a column by Frank Gibson, who presented the award.
   Mr. Kennedy is the first Tennessean to receive the award.
TPA Director of Public Policy
Former president of SPJ and NFOIC
   I had the distinct pleasure last week of introducing TPA mainstay Sam Kennedy to a national audience of Freedom of Information advocates as the 16th recipient of the “Heroes of the 50 States” award.
   “The Chairman” was inducted into the State Open Government Hall of Fame, but was not able to attend. He was home recovering from a spinal injury. Elizabeth Kennedy Blackstone accepted the award for her father from NFOIC President Mal Leary of the Maine FOI Coalition.
I’m pleased to share my introduction:
   Several years ago, legendary Washington Post political writer/columnist David Broder wandered through Middle Tennessee to report on a local congressional race. Someone suggested he drop by Maury County to visit Sam Kennedy, then editor and publisher of The Daily Herald. He did and the visit led to a column:
    “Sam Kennedy looks so much like the stereotype of the small-town American editor that you suspect, at first, they must have hired him from central casting. But, he is the authentic item—straight-backed, gray haired, his glance direct, his words slow and deliberate. Kennedy is a lawyer, a former prosecutor, a brass-collar Democrat, who doles out his wisdom eight or nine paragraphs at a time in a column he calls The Barrister’s Bit.” more
