Hometown Hero

Congrats to Dan Beery on your gold medal!

Beery is a member of the United States elite eight Olympic rowing team, which Sunday won America's first gold medal in that event in 40 years.

He's not only from Indiana, but also from Knox County--where I grew up.

And a BIG good luck to the Iraqi soccer team. Beat Paraguay today!

1 Yes, rowing does have a pround and distinguished tradition in Knox County. People are always rowing across the river to escape into Illinois.
