Great news in this morning’s email. The Connorsville New-Examiner becomes the 18th newspaper carrying Grape Sense, my newspaper column.

The News-Examiner‘s nearly 8,000 subscribers push the combined homes to 233,000 in Indiana and Illinois receiving the column in their hometown paper.

Editor Bob Hansen was swayed by friend Andrea Smithson, editor at the Shelbyville News. It’s interesting that these small and mid-size community editors find out interest in wine and wine education exists where some might not expect to find it.

It’s great to hit 18 newspapers as I approach my three-year anniversary writing the column. Now, I need to add two more and get it to 20!

Welcome aboard Connorsville and thanks Editor Hansen!
