Rob Kasper, a columnist for The Sun, has won the 1993 National Headliner award for a consistently outstanding feature column on one subject by a news service or a syndicate.
His Happy Eater column, a personal and often humorous look at food, appears in the food section on Wednesdays and in the Food & Home section on Sundays. It is distributed by the Los Angeles Times FoodStyles Syndicate and runs in 80 newspapers in the United States and Canada.
Mr. Kasper won first place for a selection of columns, including one suggesting that the Department of Agriculture's much-ballyhooed food pyramid was upside down; one defending milk drinking among children; and one describing the joy the Kansas native felt when he won a Maryland crab-picking contest.
The National Headliner Awards, now in their 59th year, annually honor the best work in American newspapers, magazine and broadcast journalism. They are sponsored by the Press Club of Atlantic City, N.J., and will be presented at a banquet there in May.
