I was a sports writer for the daily newspaper The Home News in New Brunswick, New Jersey from October 1970 to September 1974. The newspaper was owned by the Home News Publishing Company.
The sports I covered were football, swimming, basketball, rugby, lacrosse, soccer, track and field, wrestling, golf, fencing, baseball, softball, rowing and archery. Mostly area high school and college teams.
I also wrote for the newspaper non-sports articles.
I would have never thought that starting a career in journalism I would first have to go through delivering coffees, picking up mail and buying Havana cigars for the boss.
