Editor's Note

Until I can find another reporter, I'm having trouble keeping up, so I began a new series called News Briefs with the date they are posted. They are of interest to readers, but I don't have the time to interview and write stories about the person or issue, so I'm just telling you the bits of information, so you don't miss out.

Anybody interested in a part-time freelance reporter job with the Beat, give me a shout at editor@grantcountybeat.com. You need good spelling and grammar and can write a decent report without any of your opinion in the article. Opinion belongs on the Editorial page.
