OEN columnist and senior editor Walter Brasch has recently won several state and national awards for work published in 2012.

Against statewide competition, the Pennsylvania Press Club honored him with first place awards for his column, special series (for articles about problems with the state's new law on gas exploration), and religion. Also against state competition, he received first place in radio commentary from the Pennsylvania Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

The National Federation of Press Women awarded him 3rd place for his column, 3rd for social issues reporting, and honorable mention in special series. The National Society of Newspaper Columnist awarded him honorable mention for his column.

In a four decade career as a journalist, Dr. Brasch has won more than 200 awards from state and national media organizations.

He is the author of 17 books. The latest book is Fracking Pennsylvania. Combining both scientific evidence and extensive interviews with those affected by fracking throughout the country, as well as those who work in the industry, he looks at the effects upon public health and the environment, as well as problems from fracking that also affect agriculture, wildlife, and livestock. The book also explores the collusion between Big Energy and Pennsylvania's politicians. The book is available at local bookstores, amazon.com, and http://www.greeleyandstone.com
