|Terry Thompson Now|
Top flight middle distance runner Terry Thompson has just transferred from Missouri to Oregon State and is now running for the Staters TC while awaiting transfer eligibility. He transferred so that he could spend time fishing. Silly? Maybe not. Seems Terry is a part time commercial fisherman with his own boat. He grew up in Newport, Oregon, the son of a fisherman. Last year he earned $11,000. To put that in perspective, according to the US Dept of Labor/ Bureau of Labor Statistics, that would be $81,755 in today's money. Our crack research bureau – floors 9-11 of the Once Upon a Time in the Vest building are devoted to research – has fleshed out the rest of Terry's life. He has been and still is a commercial fisherman with eight boats. Terry Thompson Bio (click here) For the last three decades he has been active politically. Today, were you to go to the county offices of Lincoln County, Oregon and ask for Terry Thompson, you would be ushered into the office of the Chairman of the County Commission. He has served on the county commission since 2002. Before that he was a member of the Oregon State House of Representatives. Terry's son Travis would also be a trackster and captain the Oregon Ducks team in later years.
