Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter Lisa Falkenberg gave Bellaire Rotarians a well received presentation on the ins and outs of today's journalism, noting in particular concerns that are raised by emerging technologies in connection with the traditional role of the American press as a watchdog on government.  She attributed being the Houston Chronicle's first winner of the Pulitzer Prize as relating to the Chronicle's historical non-focus on competition rather than a lack of writing talent there. Lisa, who also was honored as the Texas AP Writer of the Year, grew up in Seguin, Texas, and joined the Houston Chronicle in 2005 - - first in the Austin bureau, then moving to Houston in 2007 to write the column. She currently serves as the Chronicle’s metro columnist, writing Wednesdays and Fridays on provocative topics ranging from politics to education to the death penalty. She is pictured with President Norm Neskar autographing the book that Rotarians will donate in her honor to the YMCA.
