After graduation life became an adventure, including some college, lots of travel and just learning to enjoy life. My education has been diversified to say the least attending several colleges and universities a few courses at a time and ending my formal education at Iowa State.
My occupations have been many, with the last 35 years spent in broadcasting
in one form or another. I have many things I love, my wife Chris, my daughter
Paula and my son Shad. I love also love Ames and Iowa. What I am and what I will
be is always grateful to the people and things that have surrounded my life in
this great part of the country we live in. The are a lot of things I've left out
but I'm sure we'll share more as you continue to visit this site.
Here's a simple pleasure we can all take advantage of. It's been a while since I've had a child involved in sports so over the weekend when I happened across some Little Leaguers practicing I found it irresistible not to stop. These eager young future major leaguers put their heart and soul into every play, their coordination, although lacking, was loaded with determination to get the job done. The coaches showed the neccessary patience to encourage and praise every effort. Even though I had no interest in any one player I pictured that fat little 9 year old that my stepfather drove to every game and practice, that supported but never pushed and made me feel like an All Star. I plan on going to more of these games and to cheer every effort on both sides of the plate, it's so little to give and yet brings great enjoyment to me.
