After retirement, Anderson plans on family time


After eight years, Duane Anderson’s time at Pine River-Backus teaching students industrial education is coming to an end.

Anderson said his retirement is coming at a time when he still feels healthy enough to enjoy his time off.

“I feel good, excellent. My health is good. I still have all of my faculties. I feel real good about retiring now. I’ve done my job. Hopefully the kids enjoyed me, too, but it’s time to move on,” Anderson said.
