Yes! Attending Reunion

I worked for the Wisconsin Department of Justice as the director of a criminal justice training program for many years, and retired in 2012. I have, before and since retirement, also been a fine arts photographer, specializing in black-and-white street photographs and portraits of mothers and daughters. I also write fiction and have published two books.

School Story:

I enjoyed working on the Washington Scroll, and was the paper's sports editor when I was a senior. It wasn't a good fit, though, because I was fairly ignorant about most sports. My biggest faux pas was writing a headline for the story about the golf team winning the state title. The headline was "Duffers Take State." Only later did I realize that "duffers" is a derogatory term for golfers. Duh!

Hey, Jerry

Hope all is well with you. If you come to the Reunion in August, it will be great to see you and catch up. It's been many years.
