Thanks for the tip, I'll try that.
As of now though, I took it over to the mechanic, we drove it again, and he STILL didn't hear it. So we went back over and I told him to take of the wheel and inspect. Another mechanic, Tony, really nice guy, jacked up the car, and spun the wheel, we could hear the squeeking/grinding noise. Then, he took the wheel off, visually inspected everything, said nothing looks out of whack. Then we spun the rotor without the wheel and couldn't hear anything. It all sounded normal without the wheel on. Then we put the wheel back on, spun it again, and we still couldn't hear the noise. It had gone away again!

Mike, and those directions about grabbing the rotor will help me determine if in fact it is a problem with the wheel bearings?
