BEST WRITER OF 2015

.

The dictionary describes writing as a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion through the inscription or recording of signs and symbols. 

The McCarty Metro would be nothing without our writers. I would like to personally thank everyone who writes anything from a small blurb to what Mike, Jerry, and Kelly contribute every month.

JERRY McCARTY

This is the 11th consecutive win for Jerry in the Best Writing category. He not only is one of our top submitters to the Metro, but Jerry also authors Jerry's World, Bob Hope Tweets From Heaven, Peanut & Jocko and appears weekly in the pod cast Rick's Martini Bar. Jerry underwent cancer treatment near the end of last year on into this year, but never missed a deadline. I just want to thank you for all you do, and Congrats on this award Jerry!

VEGAS, BABY, VEGAS

In January, 2015 a Vegas trip happened with McCartys Steve, Jerry, Kelly, Larry, Rick and Mike, along with Robert Lopez. It was a few days of fun and almost an entire family reunion. Highlight of the trip was Mike (who was wearing a bad toupee) reached for the dice on the craps game, and the hair fell into the middle of the table. Normally, the workers and pit boss would be alarmed, but they were laughing so hard, it didn't matter.

The award is voted on purely by our readers, and a second Lifetime Achievement Award may be given out by the current editor or any of the previous editors.

READERS PICK

BOB HOPE, TWEETS FROM HEAVEN

The legendary Bob Hope passed away in 2003 at the age of 100. Five years later, Metro writer Jerry McCarty started intercepting 'tweets' from the deceased comedian in heaven, and posted them on Twitter. Since July of 2008, our readers have been able to read those tweets every month in his unique style right here in the McCarty Metro. Who would have figured that 13 years after his death, Mr. Hope would receive an award for his comedy. Isn't that wild???  Congratulations Jerry!

EDITOR'S PICK

BOB & JEAN McCARTY

Let's face it. Without these two great individuals falling in love, there would be no McCarty Metro, no Brad Savage & The Cockroaches, no Mac & The Lost Cause, and most definitely not the same fine 8 men called the McCarty brothers. I am in awe of the love, kindness, and nurturing from these two people I had (and have) the privilege to call my mom and dad. The brought up 8 boys on a Detroit cop's salary, and there was never anything that we went without. Congrats Mom & Pop!

Thank You All For You Continued Support. We'll See You Back Next February For The 2016 McCarty Metro Awards
