Jim Wagner column
Jim Wagner
Jim Wagner is a retired businessman and freelance writer. His degree is in Psychology with a minor in English from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, where he lived, worked, farmed and studied for nine years after his repudiation of the Vietnam War.

His profound concern for matters of good and evil in the world and in the workings of politics, the justice system and religion was forged and tempered during his six years as owner and administrator of a group home for delinquent boys in southern CA.

His passion for freedom and love of the outdoors took him to NW Montana where he has enjoyed thirty years of hunting, fishing and horse packing into the wilds.

He and his wife Betty have two sons and six grandchildren who are his joy and the impetus for his desire to return America's culture to God and honor.
