I’m just an ordinary guy walking along on this journey called life. I’ve called this column … er, blog Father Says, a play on two facets of my complex life. My comments are always filtered through the lens of Judeo-Christian values and largely based on 40 years of marriage raising five children.
I’m a retired owner/publisher of Reveille/Between the Lakes, a weekly newspaper in Seneca County, NY, right smack in the middle of the beautiful Finger Lakes. I’ve worked in the newspaper industry all my life including stops in New Jersey, Illinois, Ohio, Washington, DC, and New York. My late wife — my inspiration in life — and I raised five children and currently have 18 grandchildren and two great-granddaughters.
