    Judge Comment: The Napa Valley Register keeps the design playful and engaging, which makes for a fun read. Some design treatments, like the column of text contained in an arrow shape in the housing story, can make reading tedious for readers, but this paper got it right more often than not. Great use of visuals, good presentation of lots of information. Nice timeline on the flood story, too!
