Sun columnist Rob Kasper received honors this month when the Newspaper Food Editors and Writers Association presented its 1990 awards. His Happy Eater columns took second place in the columns category of the group's annual writing competition. His entry competed against those from other newspapers in the United States and Canada with 200,000 or higher circulation.
Mr. Kasper submitted three columns to the contest, including one describing the eggnog of the '90s as having more substance than that served during the '80s.
The Happy Eater column appears weekly in this section and in Maryland Kitchen, and is carried by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate tonewspapers across the country. Mr. Kasper has been writing the column for six years, and has been a Sun employee for 11 years. He has received numerous awards, including a national Headliner award, for column writing. He also writes the "Saturday's Hero" column appearing weekly in The Sun's At Home section.
