Metro I4 News is a mixture of bloggers, columnists, and news links delivering information of interest to the residents of the Interstate 4 corridor. This morning, with Madoff and Sons – a Paternal Sacrifice? MI4 debuted the first local publication of writer James MacMeekin. The Winter Haven writer served in the US Air Force during the Korean conflict, earned B.A. and M.A. degrees in economics and finance at Michigan State University, worked his way through Wall Street as stock analyst up to CEO of his own venture capital firm. Retired to Winter Haven, MacMeekin taught school in Polk County for eight years before turning his attention to writing. After a pair of biographies (Abraham Lincoln, Richard O’Kane), MacMeekin has turned his attention to the short essay form. MI4 is looking forward to publishing MacMeekin’s take on many issues affecting those living from Orlando to St. Pete.
