The new year started with a bang. Several bangs. In the first week of 2008, I was offered, and happily accepted a staff writer position with the Sentinel-News. I received my journalism degree from Butler University in Indianapolis a few years ago, and as most journalism majors do, I was struggling to find a job in the field.
A week after getting the good news, more celebration was in order, as I walked the aisle and married my longtime sweetheart, Stephanie. The following week we were enjoying an incredible honeymoon in Italy.
