I have been a volunteer reader since January 1995 as well as a board member and board president for three years. As a writer for newspapers and magazines, I am somewhat of news junkie. I enjoy getting before a microphone and feeling for my reading period of 90 minutes that I am a junior Edward R. Murrow. I have enjoyed this relationship for 15 years, and I hope that those who listen to me derive as much pleasure.
