Barbara Krebs is the Newspaper correspondent with the York Dispatch. Where Joli is precise, Barbara is insightful. Her reporting involves research into the history of the county's railroad network. Her interviews with the older residents, who remember the trains and trolleys that once traveled through our communities and are now being developed as rails trails, bring the history behind the projects to life. Most importantly, her articles give York county residents a sense of ownership toward historic transportation lines that have been identified for rails trail projects.

The Outstanding Media Award is for "significant and sustained efforts to provide positive public exposure and education in the field of trail use, planning, design, or implementation. The nominee must have demonstrated a willingness and receptiveness to provide free public service exposure about trails. "

The National Trails Awards are presented by American Trails to recognize the exemplary people across the landscape of America who are working to create a national system of trails to meet the recreation, health, and travel needs of all Americans.
