Presently I am editor-host of, a non-profit news Web site. I feed news and information to five area newspapers and three radio stations in northwest Wisconsin. My broad reporting covers local, state, national and international events. International: In 2007 I covered the war in Iraq, as an embed reporter with a Wisconsin National Guard unit. National: In 2008 I covered the Republican National Convention, and the Dali Lama’s US visit in Madison, Wis. State: In 2007 I broke the state-wide story of the illegal selling of public-lake lands; it was updated and reprinted in 2008. Local: In addition to news reporting, I write a regular opinion column covering many issues. The award-winning column is published in the Inter-County Leader. I have worked on staff at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. I have freelanced with the Dallas Morning News and Rocky Mountain News. My freelance work has appeared in several newspapers around the country. I have a BS in Journalism, Texas Christian University, 1984. I am the former contractor-owner of Anderson and Associates Construction (Los Angeles). I am "retired" and live with my lovely wife on a beautiful lake in Wisconsin.
