Prior to graduating from University of Northern Iowa, Barnes began what was expected to be a long career in broadcasting; it  startered after his discharge from the Navy in 1956.  He served 39- months aboard the USS Kearsarge in the Far East, the actual length of enlistment was  3-years, 11-months, 12-days and 16-hours. One year at the University of Iowa, then Radio training in Minneapolis that opened the broadcasting adventure. Mostly in news and sports, he worked for radio and television stations in Iowa, North Carolina and Georgia. He was one of five candidates chosen to become the voice of Georgia Tech football network  but withdrew his name after auditioning for a television movie host position with a different station.  Atlanta just did not appeal.  Too big even back then.            After ending his broadcasting days, Barnes began a new career in market research for a Waterloo corporation that included a pair of daily newspapers.  He was one of the first researchers to ever study the new marketing trend - super malls. During this time, the Cedar Rapids, Ia., native created a series of table top sports games under the Statis-Pro name.  The games remained for almost two decades on the sports landscape; later produced by Avalon Hill Game Co. (Baltimore) and retailed world- wide under the Sports Illustrated Series banner. Jim produced a daily sports graphic, distributed by United Features Syndicate, Inc. (New York) and spent almost ten years writing sports annuals. Included in his magazines, the last ever publications of Jimmy “The Greek” Snyder; once a member of CBS Sunday NFL pre-game show. His sideline was originating sports analysis techqniues, creating a NBA player analysis even before Bill James appeared on the scene. Being at the right time and right place, he was hired by a Las Vegas Service to produce a weekly sports betting newsletter….the first step in his next career.  The “tout” newsletter routine didn’t last too long as GBC Press (also in Las Vegas) employed Barnes to publish the weekly  Las Vegas Journal of Handicapping - more of a teaching newsletter than selection sheet. From 1993- to 2004, Barnes was a Stardust Race and Sportsbook consultant - e-mailing daily forecasts on alll major sporting events. A New York Times supported  internet column written by Allen Moody (Tampa Bay author) cited Barnes as one of the five most important people in sports handicapping history.
