Long-time Syracuse New Times wordsmith Walt Shepperd has earned his place on the Syracuse Press Club's Wall of Distinction. Although he recently took the editorial helm of City Eagle, a local weekly, Shepperd spent first 35 years at the alternative weekly, under the varied hats of columnist, writer and editor. He joins five other journalists with their names newly emblazoned in the theater lobby of the John H. Mulroy Civic Center, reports The Post-Standard.
