The Daily DOB — Sept. 2

I will be the first to admit that I haven’t been the best fan this year. When it comes to following the St. Louis Cardinals, I could be watching more games. While I don’t watch every inning of every game, I do watch as often as I can. Social media helps me keep up with […]

It’s been a rather news-filled week in the Gem City. The biggest story — and is one that will continue to grab headlines in the weeks and months that follow — was the arrest of Quincy lawyer Curtis Lovelace on first-degree murder charges in connection with the 2006 death of his wife, Cory. Lovelace’s arrest […]

Happy anniversary to me. On this day in 2012, I worked my first shift as a “news guy” in my new role as crime and courts reporter. All that happened on that first day was going to Mexico, Mo., to watch a man get sent to prison for the rest of his life. No biggie. […]

I think I had forgotten how little shade there is on my two-block walk from the Herald-Whig to the Adams County Courthouse. I was reminded of it after getting drenched in sweat on Monday afternoon. With temperatures in the 90s and the sun blazing, it didn’t take too long to get soaked. That’s OK. I’ll […]

I’m not sure I’ve ever watched so much TV without ever having to use a remote control. Actually, at one point on Sunday night, my DirecTV system wanted to make sure we were still watching because we hadn’t touched the remote in four hours. It was ready to go into power-saving mode. We were tuned […]

For much of the past two weeks, I’ve been watching the Little League World Series. It’s been great theater. My interest this year has been helped by the fact a team from Chicago is in the field. Watching the kids from Jackie Robinson West Little League have a ball on their way to Saturday’s U.S. […]

During my week away from the keyboard, I was glued to the TV every night. I couldn’t (and still can’t) help but tune into the events taking place in Ferguson, Mo. It’s been an unreal scene every night since an unarmed teenager named Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson on […]

When the movie “42″ came out last year, I wrote a story about how one of Quincy’s own, Fritz Ostermueller, was wrongfully portrayed in the movie. Nearly a year and a half after the movie came out, people are still defending Ostermueller. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran a piece on Sunday by Richard “Pete” Peterson that […]

The Daily DOB — Aug. 6

Chicago Cubs fans woke up this morning to find out their savior had arrived while many of them were sleeping. Around midnight last night/this morning, Javier Baez hit a solo home run in the top of the 12th inning to give the Cubs a 6-5 victory at Colorado. Baez, a second baseman, is one of […]
