Hello NM chess community!

I am happy to announce that the Albuquerque Journal has decided to give me a shot at writing a local chess column. The first column will appear in the Sunday Journal on the 22nd of January, and, for the time being, it will alternate with Shelby Lyman’s syndicated column every other Sunday (biweekly basis).

I am very willing to discuss possibilities to make this a successful endeavor.  If anyone has suggestions or material to submit (e.g. tournament/scholastic games, chess problems/positions, local chess stories, obituaries, etc., etc.) please feel free to send them to me for possible publication!  I created a designated email account, journalchess@gmail.com , for this very purpose.

Thank you all and good chess!
