First baby of the year is born
Douglas County’s first baby for 1998 is Hogan Alan Hunter, born 3:30 p.m. Jan. 9 at Barton Memorial Hospital.
Hogan weighed in at 7 lbs., 3 oz. and joins parents Tom and Stacie Hunter, who live in the Gardnerville Ranchos.
The couple, both 1985 Carson High School graduates, have been married since 1989.
Stacie is an accountant for the state of Nevada and an amateur photographer.
“Now I have a wonderful new subject to take pictures of,” she said.
Tom is a pharmacist for Scolari’s Pharmacy in Gardnerville and an amateur winemaker.
To commemorate the birth of their first child, he made a batch of Chardonnay and named it Hogan Alan Hunter wine.
Maternal grandparents are Sandra Joerg of Yerington and Charlie Joerg of Carson City. Paternal grandparents are John and Charmalee Hunter of Carson City.
Hogan will be featured in The Record-Courier’s Jan. 17 “Bundles of Joy” special advertising section highlighting the babies of 1997 and the first baby born in 1998.
