But nothing comes close to this for a one-person news operation with two dozen-plus volunteers started from scratch.
Google chose our blog installment by Mark Williams headlined: "Nancy Grace regular: Everyone a loser in the Casey Anthony case.
Williams, a radio newscaster, was a frequent guest on the HLN "Nancy Grace Show" for much of the Casey saga. He outlined his thoughts on the media frenzy as did two of our other bloggers, Darlene Vann of Edgewater and Cheyenne Drews, a New Smyrna Beach High School student.
Peter Mallory, the other founding member of NSBNews.net wrote a column on the Home page in his regular slot describing Casey as a modern-day Jezebel.
