GARYVIDEOS – Looking Back On My Life, I remember the time I conducted a videotaped conversation with former Wood County (Wisconsin) Board Chairman Bill Goodness on the River Cities Public Access Channel in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. The interview took place after my year 2000 retirement from my News Anchor-Reporter position at WFHR Radio. The analog VHS tape recording of that interview has now been transferred to digital for viewing on computers, tablets, laptops, and wireless smartphones. One of the topics included how redistricting following the 2000 Census resulted in causing seasoned county board supervisors, including Bill Goodness, to lose their seats. The redrawn borders moved the homes of several supervisors, forcing them all to run against each other.

GARYTALK.COM – David Obey celebrated his 80th birthday October 3rd, 2018. For those of you who may not remember Dave, he was a United States Congressman, representing the Wisconsin 7th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives from 1969 to 2011. Obey (OH-Bee) was preceded by Melvin Laird, who resigned to take on the responsibility of Secretary of Defense in the Nixon administration. Prior to becoming a Congressman, Obey was elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1963 and served there until 1969 when Laird took on the Secretary of Defense job. Obey’s work ethic and political ideals impressed me enough to influence my decision to try the political arena, myself, for a brief time.
