Congratulations! Emmy nominations for sea-star photography by ‘Diver Laura’ James

Congratulations to frequent WSB contributor “Diver Laura” James and her colleagues on that 2014 KCTS report about the sea-star die-off – they’ve been nominated for the Pacific Northwest Emmy Awards. That’s one of two nominations for Laura – her underwater photography of the sea-star situation also is part of another Emmy-nominated KCTS report, “Is Alaska Safe for Starfish?” Last year, she won one for another public-TV project, about sea otters and climate change. The full list of this year’s regional Emmy Award nominations is here; the winners will be announced in June.

    Laura is fantastic and her work to highlight the dangers facing the Sound and its denizens is first rate. She’s also the major force behind the groundwater program and continues to break new ground with her video gear. Congratulations – well deserved. Laura, you are an incredible asset to the community, thank you for your efforts and award-winning videography.

    It is in no small part thanks to all the WSB readers that have helped with encouraging, motivating and kind words and actions to follow this path and help keep me tilting at my windmills :) A million thanks to all of YOU and a very special thanks to WSB for giving me a conduit to share my slightly different view :)
