Consolation Prize

MORE than three months after he was laid off, former East Valley Tribune reporter Paul Giblin learned on Monday he had helped his old newspaper in Arizona win a Pulitzer Prize.

Giblin and Tribune reporter Ryan Gabrielson earned the award in the local reporting category for their coverage of the Maricopa County sheriff's immigration enforcement operations.

While relishing the honor, Giblin admitted he wondered what it would have been like to find out he won while still in the Tribune's Mesa, Arizona, newsroom. "It is kind of sad. I wish I was still at the Tribune. I'd have a party with them right now," Giblin said.

The paper, which plans to eliminate its Saturday edition on May 16, changed to a free four-day-a-week model in January and laid off about 140 workers, including Giblin.
