I write stuff that’s in my head.
I was born and raised in Middletown, New York. I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and then went on to a series of jobs that were not very interesting until I found a job as columnist, reporter and photographer at the Star-Herald.
I even wrote a novel. It hasn’t been published, but feel free to read it if you want.
Since the 2016 election of Donald Trump, the concept of fake news has come to the forefront of our collective consciousness. I’ve been wary of questionable news sites and pure propaganda for decades. I made a list of websites I read regularly.
You still need to use your brain. These places can, and do make mistakes, and I don’t always agree with everything they say/write, so make sure you read everything with scrutiny. Don’t rely on me to always be right either.

Reddit subreddits – From here I end up on a variety of websites that are classified left, right and center.
Televised news – I don’t have cable television and live in an area where I can’t get over the air television, so this what I watch when I’m not reading the news.
Here’s a list of worthy causes. They are places I support, but you can always head over to Charity Navigator and make up your own mind about who you want to support with your hard-earned cash.
