    Notes 
    • “Ward Bushee Jr., a longtime editor who led the Watsonville Register-Pajaronian to a Pulitzer Prize, died June 5, 2002, from melanoma. He was 79. Mr. Bushee was one of the youngest editors of a daily newspaper in the nation when he took over the reins of The Register-Pajaronian in 1951. His leadership in the investigative reporting of a corrupt local district attorney garnered the newspaper a Pulitzer Prize, making it at the time the smallest-circulation newspaper to ever win the esteemed award.” -- http://www.cnpa.com/Bulletin/June17bulletin/index4.html
