Tasche’s Corner : my weekly columns from The Lawton Times

My pre-college writing …


When I turned 19, I landed a job as a newspaper columnist for The Lawton Times, a newspaper serving Lawton, Oklahoma, and the surrounding communities. I had my own weekly column called Tasche’s Corner.
There are six articles on the left to scroll through.  These were originally published in August and September, 1985.


Acting …

On the right is an article from The Bridge, Portland Community College’s newspaper, March 13, 1986, where I enjoyed writing, as well as acting in the school’s theatre program.
