Thomas Wheatley's kick-ass cover story about his battle with alcoholism, "Sober," was named the second-best feature story in the country at the Association of Alternative Newsweekly's annual conference this past weekend. Yay Thomas!

The AAN awards are the most prestigious for the nation's altweeklies.

The other winners in the Feature Story category for 2008 were Westword's "The Good Soldier" (first place), Westword's "Father of Invention" (third place), Houston Press's "Mental Anguish" (honorable mention), and L.A. Weekly's "From Silver Lake to Suicide" (honorable mention).

Our sister papers Washington City Paper and Chicago Reader took home a whopping five and two AAN awards, respectively. Congrats, guys!
