living in Emmitsburg. For most of
his life Emmitsburg was the town
he visited! The Dispatch was a
year old when Jack, who had
recently finished a course on
writing and needed an excuse to
practice, and was into fish big
time, began writing "FRESH
WATER FISH, THE PET."
Jack’s current contribution to
the Dispatch focuses on his love
of food, and can be read under
"SOMETHING TO EAT."
fun Jack reads, plants a garden,
writes, torments librarians,
attempts to grow houseplants, and
tries to cook. He spends what life
of his time with his newest
passion, a Wunder Banjo! Dispatch
