By Darrell Alexander, Westend Correspondent

My roots are founded in the Pacific Northwest being born and bred in Humboldt County, Calif., and even had basic training in 1969 at Fort Lewis. I have been married to my wife, Vie, for 45 years. I have a bachelor's degree in history from Langston University in Oklahoma. I have a double masters from the University of Oklahoma in Administrative Leadership and in Human Relations. I taught history and political science at Tulsa Community College before moving to Grays River.

The biggest event that has taken place in my life since moving into the county is how the people here have influenced me into becoming a better person. It is easier to ignore people in a big city because the chances of meeting again may be remote. For the last year I have written stories for The Wahkiakum County Eagle in which I have had the opportunity to meet many of you in the community on a professional as well as a personal level. The encounters with you the community have impacted me to understand the personality of the people. You may appear quirky, odd, lovable, or laughable, but to me you have become somewhat my semi-extended family.

The Downriver Dispatches will continue to give you the same information regarding upcoming events west of the KM Mountain. I will continue to bring stories of community interest and public awareness. Anything you the reading public can add to this, please feel free to contact me through The Eagle for the moment.
