I have been a free-lance journalist since 1960, when I was at SLC
Tower. I started out writing for newspapers and wire services in SLC, then
the FAA Aviation News, FAA Horizons and Intercom. After I retired from the
Corps, I continued free-lancing primarily for Northwest newspapers and
their Sunday magazines, McGraw-Hill World News. I also had the Oregoon
coast bureau for the Salem Statesman Journal for eight years.
