Ginny has yet to fill out a bio.
Sorry, but I am not that David Persons (I did my internship a bit further south at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram with Jack Tinsley in the mid-late 70's) but I think I know the David you are looking for. He is the publisher and editor of the Windsor Beacon ( http://www.coloradoan.com/section/WINDSORBEACON/Windsor-Beacon ) in Windsor, Colorado. The number for the paper is (970) 686-9646. I hope this helps, and I am pretty sure that this is the David Persons you are thinking of (let's face it, how many of us can there be?)
I may have some other contact information for him if you would like, but I will have to find it.
It nice to meet you anyway :-)
