She looks forward to bringing her passion for storytelling to the Tri State area. In her free time, Miranda likes to play tennis, eat cereal, listen to podcasts, and read in her hammock. She has visited 4 continents so far.  In sixth grade she told her Language Arts teacher that her dream job was to host a radio show.

Daniel Beers didn't quite know what to expect when he first traveled to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country.  It's estimated 100,000 people died as a result of the earthquake and nearly one million more were displaced.

Galesburg voters saw a few new names on this month's ballot.  A couple of the newcomers who did not win said they nonetheless benefited from the experience.
