Jack Ohman, The Oregonian's political cartoonist since 1983
The Oregonian's political cartoonist, Jack Ohman, has won the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for editorial cartoons published in 2008 reflecting the lives and strife of disadvantaged people throughout the world.
Ohman learned about the award in a personal call from Ethel Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy's widow, who told him, "You honor Bobby's name" in describing the work that won the award.
Here is how the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial foundation describes the award:
"Known as the "Poor People's Pulitzers" ... these award recipients have brought to light issues spanning from child abuse and juvenile crime to discriminatory banking practices and prejudice against AIDS victims.
Hugo family talks about two-year-old tornado victim

The things that could be salvaged from the home of Jerry and Christy Prindle, barely fit in a pick-up truck. But friends and neighbors searched nonetheless for insurance papers, stuffed animals and family photos. What they found mattered little compared to who was lost.
"Nathaniel was a wonderful little boy with a very big heart, a very big smile," said Todd Nelson, an uncle of the two-year-old son of Jerry and Christy.
Nathaniel was found by neighbors late Sunday afternoon, after the tornado blew him out of his home and into a pond beyond his backyard.
