It was 50 years ago on Oct. 5 that I moved to the Stevens Point area. I’m still here.
It wasn’t supposed to be that way, at least when I came. The late Dave Silverman worked for a month to get me to leave my home in Milwaukee and make the trek north. Silverman’s efforts came to pass because I didn’t have a job in Milwaukee, so I decided to move to join him and the late Pete Barnard at WSPT.
I promised myself I’d spend a year here before seeking fame and fortune in Wisconsin’s largest city – or somewhere else. But things happen.
