Flower Mound Resident Earns Recognition From The Hillman Foundation

The Hillman Foundation honors journalists who write "an outstanding piece of socially-conscious journalism." Flower Mound resident Ladd Biro received special mention for his "Wake Up, Flower Mound!"

This month the Hillman Foundation would also like to give a special mention to Ladd Biro, who has reported on natural-gas drilling in Texas. Biro's op-eds in The Cross Timbers Gazette show how the massive drilling under way in the state has prompted a spate of community organizing. Read one of his pieces here.
