It has been over 39 years since the Navajo Times gave me the chance to be a journalist and trained me as a news reporter.
During the 1980s and 1990s, I lived in the Chuska Mountains on the Navajo Nation. From my log cabin, I drove out each day, down the mountain to Window Rock, or out to Kayenta or Big Mountain.
