The Daily DOB — May 4

Just because everyone else is doing it today: May the Fourth Be With You. With that out of the way, had a chance to finally check out the new look QU Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The place looks great, and Quincy University has a team worthy of such a nice venue. The Hawks are on […]

For sports fans — and gamblers — it doesn’t get much bigger than Saturday. First, you have the traditional “Run For The Roses” at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. I can honestly say that I haven’t heard one word about the Kentucky Derby. Guess we have to wait until the race is over before we […]

Believe it or not, I’ve almost forgotten that the NFL Draft starts today. Now that our youngest son’s baseball season is in full swing, we don’t watch much SportsCenter. Forgive me for missing the thousands of hours they have spent on breaking down who is going where over the next few days. But who needs […]

When riots in Ferguson, Mo., broke out last August and November after the police-involved shooting death of a black teenager, I watched the coverage almost non-stop. This was happening “right down the street” from us. I was mesmerized. Unfortunately, another situation like Ferguson has popped up in Baltimore. Citizens there rioted Monday in protest of […]

Since taking over as the Whig’s crime and courts reporter in August 2012, I’ve written a lot about methamphetamine. In January 2014, the Herald-Whig dedicated nearly a whole week of front-page stories to the meth problem in Adams County. Stories that I was able to get from former users of the drug were powerful. I’m […]

Saturday marks the start of the River City Dirtbags 10U baseball team’s season. My son, Reid, has been on the team since he was 7. There is only a 100 percent chance of rain in Chatham, site of our lid-lifter. The good news is that we are playing on turf fields. Unless there is lightening, […]

Less than two months ago, I was bumming about the fact Quincy lost its Steak and Shake. This morning, I heard the news that I will be able to get the best chili ever again in Quincy. My buddy Doug Wilson, who covers business among other things he does for the H-W, informs that the […]

As I write this, it is nearly 4:45 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon. I have already watched one minute of the NHL playoffs today. Seeing that the Blackhawks and Predators game was going to a third overtime while trolling social media early this morning, I decided to turn the TV back on and check out […]

Maybe I need to start paying closer attention, but I had no idea who the Cincinnati Reds’ manager was before yesterday. Now that I’m no longer in the sports loop, I pretty much pay attention only to “my teams.” Bryan Price is in his second year of managing the Reds. (Who knew?) I’m guessing he […]
