About Gary Van Freeman

Gary-Optimized-1After years of covering most of the North American Continent, I have returned to the place of my birth, Mississippi. Alas, it hasn’t turned me into William Faulkner or even (Thank God!) Tennessee Williams. I have worked from Seattle to Miami. From San Diego to New Hampshire and everywhere in between.  I have met some really, really nice people and married two beautiful young women (Not at the same time.) I have two children and one step daughter.

After teaching for 8 years in Canton, MS, I have now retired and sit watching the sun rise and set.

Mississippi has a lot of things to recommend it. On the whole though I had much rather be in Texas or in Colorado. My mother and step father live in Mississippi and as long as they are around, I am helping them.


Pros: Krystal Burgers. Lots of Magnolias. Lots of Pretty Ladies.

Cons: All my kids live in Texas. All my exes live in Texas, Krystal Burgers make you fat, Magnolias stop up your nose.
