My local history column provides a perspective on a variety of topics from the past. Community Voices, a regional supplement of the North Bay Nugget, is provided free every Friday to 29,500 households in  North Bay and area.

I write on a variety of timely topics that are of interest to me and hopefully others.  I usually provide some photographs on the particular topic of the day to enhance the story.  Over time, I have tried (and will try) to include locations within the Community Voices area.  

Below you will find links to web versions of each of my columns from the latest to the first. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Ideas, suggestions and comments are appreciated. (see below for contact information)

I am always glad to hear from you but for a number of reasons I regret that I may not be able to respond to all enquires.

The column as you see it on the website may be edited by me or the Nugget later, so the published version may differ slightly from what you see. Click on the title of a column you are interested in to view it.
