WHERE WE LIVE
We (my wife Jay, N7WRJ, daughter Ruthie, N7AQH and I) live in Eastern Oregon at the base of the Elkhorn Mountains 12 miles outside of Baker City. We own a small ranch where over the years we have raised and trained American Paint Horses and Border Collie working dogs. The flag of the United States and the Police Officers Thin Blue line flags fly at the entrance to our ranch 24/7/365.
I began my career in public safety as a Technical Reserve Deputy Sheriff in Communications at the age of 18. The majority of my 50 years in public safety has been spent in Law Enforcement. I am a retired Chief of Police but still serve as the Reserve Commander with a local law enforcment agency. I have also served as Chief of a Fire/Rescue company, 9-1-1 Center Director, and Emergency Management Director. Patches of the agencies I have served with are shown below. I hold a Master of Science Degree in Administration and am the author of 10 published books. The most recent books (2014), all available on Amazon in both print and Kindle are: Firestone Park: Policing South-Central Los Angeles; From the Chief; and The Second Seven. JUST RELEASED January 2015: OathKeepers and Law Enforcement: A Cop's Thoughts---also on Amazon in print and Kindle

I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH MANY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES IN MY CAREER BUT FEW COULD EQUAL THE OPPORTUNITIES I HAD, ON THREE DIFFERENT OCCASIONS, TO MEET AND SPEND TIME WITH PRESIDENT REAGAN
I have been continuously licensed since 1958 and have held the following calls: WV6CUP, WA6CUP, KG6LF, XE2GWB, K6BZ, KW7J, AND N7WR. I am a life member of the ARRL and have held the following positions in the ARRL Field organization: SM, SEC, DEC, EC, PIO, VE, and was the Chairman of the first ARRL Emergency Communications Advisory Committee. I hold DXCC Honor Roll (need only to confirm P 5 to have them all) 7 BDXCC, 7 BWAC, 5 BWAZ, WAS ande DX Challenge. In retirement I have downsized my station to the point where I no longer have or use an amp. HF rig is a Kenwood TS 590S with modest antennas. I can still work anything I can hear and still have fun doing it.
POLITICAL AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY
I am an Orthodox Roman Catholic who believes in the right to life, the United States Constitution, and am a staunch supporter of our military and professional law enforcment. I support and defend the rights of all citizens. I oppose abortion, unnatural marriage, Islamic terrorists, Obamacare, and amnesty for illegal aliens. As such you may conclude I have absolutely no use for the immoral, corrupt, and dishonest regime which currently occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
