What is your background?

I was born in Peoria, Ill., in 1953. My family lived in Eureka, Ill., until I was 5 years old. We then moved to Minnesota to farm the family farm. I attended country school through 3rd grade. Our school closed so I went to "town school," which was Morris Public Elementary. I graduated from Morris in 1974.
