Comments:

I began working in the newspaper business in 1973, after obtaining degrees from Boston College, U of Wisconsin and Syracuse, and serving as a lieutenant in the Army at Ft. Lee, Ft. Lewis and Bien Hoa, Vietnam (1st Cavalry Division). I have worked in Petersburg, Va., New Haven, Conn., and Cincinnati.

I have not been back to Connecticut much, other than the three years I worked in New Haven. I have been in Cincinnati since 1977. My son graduated from the University of Cincinnati and lives with his wife in Iizaka Japan, where he teaches English in high school. We took a "roots tour" back to New England in March, 2010, my son's first visit to the area of my youth, and my first extended visit since the '80s. I also attended our 50th anniversary reunion.

Currently I do various volunteer activities and work for the Reds and Bengals part time.

This is from our Alumni Lague baseball days playing for Nutmeg Chrome. That is us on the far left front row. Sorry for the sideways nautre of the file, I just couldn't get it to turn, LOL This must have been when we were 13-14 years old.
