Living his dream

    Since childhood Charley Burns wanted to draw, and he has lived his dream for over 60 years.  His day job was working in the DuPont company’s art department, but he also doubled as the sports cartoonist for the NewsJournal. Boy, does he have some stories to share, including a birthday drawing for Ol’ Blue Eyes, and an emotional tribute to a former Eagle.  He shares his memories in First Experience this week.
