Two newspaper blurbs

A while back, going through papers, I found a couple newspaper blurbs that I wanted to share/keep. In a way they are completely different but in another way they are similar — possibly something that proud parents asked the Elgin Daily Courier News to share. Another similarity is that they are about two men in my life, my father and my husband.

I put the article about Dean on the refrigerator and Clare drew his likeness on the whiteboard when she visited in December.
