The Sneak Preview began as a twice-monthly free newspaper in Grants Pass, Oregon, on July 28, 1986, but I suppose it had its roots on the playgrounds of Evansville, Indiana, my hometown.
As the editor, publisher and sole owner of the Sneak Preview, my background in journalism was limited to a school newspaper I began in 5th grade at Assumption Grade School, a small parochial school of 100 students covering grades one through eight. Along with a team of reporters and writers, I would gather the news on the playground, and over the weekend would put the newspaper, "The Assumption News," together by hand. The paper would then be distributed on the playground throughout the week for everyone to read. When I transferred to another grade school my 7th grade year, I continued with the Good Shepherd Gazette.
