In addition to our contributors, thanks are due to others who have provided invaluable advice to A Prairie Journal. It’s launch was encouraged by several, including Edward Valauskas, editor of First Monday at FirstMonday.org; Cyndi Duda, education and outreach coordinator of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service; Chuck Valauskas, attorney; and Stephen Duke, best husband and cheerleader. Editors Cindy Crosby, Darsha Primich, and Erin Tuttle have given generously of their time and energy. Thanks also to author Jim Ballowe for his ongoing support.
