Meet Your Neighbor

By Susan Galbraith, Quill Staff


Meet Your Neighbor Tony Anderson who works full time for the Village of Stronghurst.

He was born in La Harpe and raised in rural Carman. Tony graduated from Southern High School in 1981.

His family consists of his mother, Wynona who lives in Stronghurst; one brother, Tracey who lives in Georgia; two sisters, Temple lives in Konawa, Oklahoma and Tiffany whose husband is in the Air Force in Okinawa, Japan. He has 6 nieces and 2 nephews.

He bought a Yamaha street bike last summer and enjoys the time he is able to spend riding, but his new project takes up much of his leisure time.

He and his brother Tracy, started a production company that produces dirt track racing videos. Tracy has been in multimedia for some time but Tony just recently joined him in the venture.

The summer of 2006 they took pictures and shot a demo for a documentary on dirt track racing entitled, "Dirt, Dust, and Speed" and are building off of that project. The video included 4 area racing tracks: 34 Raceways in Burlington and Donnellson, Iowa, a track in Memphis, Missouri and a track in Eldon, Missouri.

If you are interested in being a sponsor for their documentary contact Tony. This time of year you will find him working on the icy streets of Stronghurst.
