Douglas resident Ethel Krause Johnson (White) won the Editor’s Choice Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry from the National Library of Poetry in Owings Mills, Md. Her poem Glorious Springtime was published in November in Beyond the Stars, a hardbound anthology published by the National Library of Poetry. She was also offered membership in the International Society of Poets. Johnson is secretary/treasurer of the Border Poetry Society of Douglas, which meets the last Saturday of each month at the Douglas Williams House.
“ I’ve always been interested in writing,” she said. “I’ve been writing since I was a child, but this is the first contest I entered.” Johnson said she entered the contest on the advice of a co-worker at the police department in Seattle, Wash. “ I never really wanted to gain attention through the media, but then I began to study poetry, especially with Dick Bakken, and that was great .... This is just a beginning,” she said, “I think I’ll do more of it now that I’m started.”

Johnson (now Ethel K. White) was born and raised in Dorchester, Wisc., and lived in Duluth, Minn., and Burbank, Cal. She moved to Douglas in ‘51, left in ‘66, and returned in ‘83.
