About Dale Moss
Dale Moss grew up and lives along the Ohio River in Jeffersonville, in a farmhouse built by his great great-grandparents during the Civil War.
He enjoyed writing long before acknowledging he did. Boys were supposed to like to fish, not to string sentences, after all. Anyway, he wrote to tell stories and, for four decades, he uniquely told the stories of Southern Indiana in newspapers. For much of that time, Moss was the Indiana columnist for The Courier-Journal, a metropolitan daily based in Louisville, KY. He wrote 3,500 or so columns, a never-ending joy that took him into caves and forests, into schools and jails, into living rooms and kitchens. Moss retired in April, 2012, and occasionally succeeds at staying busy. He still dreams of being the next Willie Mays for The San Francisco Giants. His wife of 37 years, Jean, puts up with being the love of his life and his best friend. Their children, Sam and Allison, live nearby and already hugely help make the world a better place.
