The Star-Ledger Profiles Pete Tamburro

CJA "Chess Journalist of the Year" Pete Tamburro, of Morristown, New Jersey, is nicely profiled in today's Newark Star-Ledger. The article, "A Winning Gambit for Star-Ledger Chess Columnist" by Claudia Perry, offers some details about Pete's life and his views on the benefits of chess for kids. The 59-year-old chess writer, organizer, and lecturer is an AP History teacher at the Frisch School in Paramus, where he also coaches the chess team (of course). He is currently finishing a three-volume lesson plan titled "Teaching Chess: Step-by-Step" for the Kasparov Chess Foundation, designed especially for promoting scholastic chess.

What the article does not emphasize is that Pete is a master of all chess media:

Best wishes to Pete on his most recent success.
