Neal is a fishing guide on the Hoh River on the Olympic Peninsula’s West End.
He began writing his column in 1998 and is now featured on the Peninsula Daily News’ commentary page.

Neal’s contribution to identifying and evaluating the historical importance of historic places and the people who lived the history of the Olympic Peninsula has earned recognition with an award for Special Achievement in Historic Preservation by Gov. Jay Inslee.
The community is invited to attend the event. Society meetings are open to the public at no cost.
