    Will Grandbois, Editor

    Editor Will Grandbois grew up in and out of The Valley Journal office thanks to his mom, Becky Young, who was involved in the founding of three Carbondale papers. He got involved with The Sun as the webmaster and later earned his wings hands-on at the Post Independent (his degree’s actually in Anthropology). He holds “office hours” at noon Thursdays at the Pour House (the source of this absurd pic).
