 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am enjoying the "retired" life in Nevada.  Retired means that I am a VOLUNTEER for the:
- Basin College Steering Committee
- Veterans Memorial Advisory Board
- Poverty Outreach Commission
- Life Member of the VFW and DAV (Very active with both)
- Nevada Center for Public Police Dialogue
- Prostate Cancer Support Group - Recorder
- Ordained Elder for two local churches

In the November 2010 General Election, I was elected to serve as a member of our Town Board.  Our Town is governed by a five-member Town Board and I was elected to serve a four-year term.  I still try to maintain my volunteer status in the Town and the County where I can. 
Other Comments:
I would love to get into my golf game but am not used to the Nevada heat yet.  :-)

I am also on a Bowling League and trying to improve my game.
