Alan Simon proud of his first grandson

Spring Valley Justice Alan Simon today dedicated his court session to his first grandson.

Jack Andrew Simon came into the world healthy and happy at 11 p.m. Tuesday, Simon announced from the bench.

The infant became Simon’s third grandchild. He has two granddaughters.

“The court is personally proud and thrilled to have a grandson,” Simon said.

Of course, the news lessen the disappointment of two people deciding to stay in the county jail and refusing to show up in the Spring Valley Justice Court.

“He refused to come,” Simon said with dry humor of one inmate. “I don’t know why. We’re so good to people here.”
