  • Singing, dancing, living

    If you see me driving around Grant County, there is a 95 percent chance I’m singing in my car.

    If you see me leaving the Grant County News office, there’s probably a 75 percent chance I’m whistling a song that’s stuck in my head.

    But there is always a 100 percent chance that I’ve always got music on my mind.
