The Readers Pick - Jerry McCarty

Jerry has excelled at his writing and comedy craft for many years now. As mentioned above, he has written the award winning Jerry's World for the past 22 years. He also created and has written Bob Hope Tweet's from Heaven for the past 5 years in the Metro, and also has his own followers on Facebook and Twitter. Jerry resurrected Peanut n' Jocko from the Weekly Reader, and made them a staple cartoon on the Metro.

. .

In 2010, Jerry took a recorded conversation with Kelly over the controversial issue of 'Pie vs Cake', and parlayed that into a weekly Hollywood Podcast called Rick's Martini Bar, which plays on radio stations, and featured in the Metro. Congratulations Jerry. 

The Editor's Pick - Dan McCarty

Dan was one of the original writers on the Metro. His work on 'Sawdust' is already in the rafters as the first Metro cartoon. He can be credited with making the first multimedia issue of the McCarty Metro as he cut out photographs from newspapers and then put funny captions or stories on them. It started out as a direct mail between Mike and DJ, but then he would make copies and send them to others. He also wrote the columns 'The Backyard Mechanic' and 'Dan The Medicine Man'.

. .

Dan was also very active during the Metro's "video" era putting out several hilarious submissions with Jerry, Larry and others. Although gone from us for almost 18 years, Dan's presence is still felt in each issue of the McCartyMetro. Congratuations DJ.
