The owner of an Alton business is returning to the Riverbend after spending the last several days in Cleveland.  Ann Badasch, owner of My Just Desserts in Alton, has been working as a "professional volunteer" at the Republican National Convention.

As a professional volunteer, she does a variety of jobs, but has spent much of her time making sure those in attendance find their seats or suites.  She tells The Big Z it is an exciting atmosphere.
