"Vital Signs" and "Visions"

We are thrilled that the Morris Daily Herald used our “Vital Signs of Grundy County” as a starting point for this year’s “Visions” feature!

Topics within the ten “Vital Signs” categories were developed into stories and highlighted as a special pull-out section the week of February 19th.

In case you didn’t pick up your hard copies of the Morris Daily Herald last week, we have posted the “Visions” sections here:
