On April 1st, the Kansas Free Press will mark its 6-month anniversary. With gratitude for the Kansans who nobly commit their time and talents to citizen journalism, we are celebrating our upcoming half-year anniversary by proudly showcasing each of our writers.
SALINA, Kan. - In this profile, we are honored to introduce KFP correspondent, David Norlin. In addition to writing here, David writes occasional columns for the Salina Journal and other area print newspapers. He is former instructor of broadcast communications and English at Cloud County Community College. David's civilian, "retired" activities include swearing under and above his breath at ideologues and taking part in interesting Salina projects, such as the recent Reality Not Celebrity event in Salina. He also ran for the Kansas Senate in 2000 and as Democratic candidate for Kansas House District 71 in 2008.
David is former chair of Community Access Television and present chair of the Salina Human Relations Commission. He led a League of Women Voters study of city/county consolidation and was part of an effort to establish a Salina Complementary Currency with the Spirituality Resource Center.
