Sportswriter seeks new challenge

Sportswriter seeks new challenge.........Sportswriter, currently in Michigan wants to relocate to warmer climate. I have 20 years experience, mostly in sports, but also have done breaking news, features and some layout and photography. 

My experience covers little league to senior Olympics, including major colleges, NCAA playoffs which include both men's and women's sports along with various news events. 

I have also interviewed such notables as Joe Paterno, Pete Rose, Tim Duncan, Ann Landers and many others. I worked as a staff writer on various papers across the country as well as many freelance writings in over 40 states over the years. 

Things in Michigan have gotten worse via the state government partly due to increased crime where drive-byes are common, affecting police as well as citizens in their homes. Auto insurance rates are the highest in the country and the new governor, who was elected on a "fix the damn roads" slogan has blocked an increase to do so. 

I'm not afraid of extra work and love what I do. I have no vice problems such as smoking (anything), only do RX drugs from a doctor and despite a minor disability from years ago due mainly to a fall, get around fine. 

I'm open to interviews with help to do so as well as moving. I'm single, an animal lover, but no pets of my own currently. 

Please contact me at Edward Meyers, 31895 Merton Drive, Farmington Hills, MI 48334. Phone 248-452 1296. I've had computer problems due to some recent storms, so phone is the best way to reach me.
