It turns out that Eric won an Academy Award on Sunday, March 5. We had no idea that he was nominated, or that he was involved in the film industry in any way. Do they give Oscars for best performance by a County Attorney?
Clearly it doesn’t take much to amuse us around here. To see what all the Simonson family has been a buzz about this week, much to Eric’s dismay, click on: http://www.oscar.com/oscarnight/winners/bestdocumentaryshortsubjectcategory.html
Okay, so OUR Eric Simonson didn’t win an Oscar, but he did appear on the five o’clock news in Des Moines for the first time on February 28, to talk about a case his office is investigating. And really, isn’t KCCI just a step away from the Academy Awards?
