When I was studying journalism at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, I was required to take the class Public Affairs Reporting. It was taught by an actual reporter, Larry Oakes. Oakes started working at the Duluth News Tribune back in 1982. He quickly gained recognition by winning the Frank Premack Public Affairs Journalism Award for a series he did on plea bargains in the court system. In 1985, he was hired by the Star Tribune and worked the Duluth bureau for 21 years. He also edited Minneapolis coverage for two years.
