About Us

Good News Ventures, Inc. is the publisher of The News Herald and The Sports Herald for all of Grant County, and The SEGway News, which covers SouthEast Grant, especially the Upland and Matthews areas.

In addition, Good News Ventures sponsors events and enterprises that promote Grant County, such as The Grant County Amateur, Senior and Junior golf tournaments. We are continually searching for the right opportunities with which to become involved.

Doug Roorbach is the principal of Good News Ventures and publisher of the papers. His brother Mike is involved as the publisher’s representative for The News Herald and The Sports Herald. Catherine Kerton-Johnson is a partner with The SEGway News and edits that paper.

Freelancer Loretta Tappan is the lead reporter for The News Herald. In addition, she writes Behind the Scenes, a column exploring the lives of those in Grant County whose work is often underappreciated.

Sean Douglas edits The Sports Herald. You may see him at sports events from any of the five Grant County high schools throughout the week and see his posts on these web pages.

Soli Deo gloria

It is the desire of Good News Ventures that everything we do would please our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and that God would receive the credit for any good done through our pages and other activities.
