A heapin' helpin' of huzzahs and mazel tovs are in order today for two Dallas Observer staffers: Megan Feldman and Alexander Flores. Both are among the finalists in the 13th annual AltWeekly Awards, which will be handed out by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies during the first week of June in Philadelphia. Megan's among the three finalists in the feature writing category for her piece "El Tren de la Muerte," which ran last July. And three of Alex's covers are among those nominated in the design category, including the one pictured above. Incidentally, several of Alex's Observer covers and layouts are also up for an award courtesy the Dallas Society of Visual Communications, which'll hand out its accolades June 7. But they're not in this for the awards, only the exorbitant and wholly nonexistent cash prizes. --Robert Wilonsky
