Links to profiles now back... sort of

I've finally figured out how to provide links to the profiles for those of you who are interested. Unfortunately the individual, searchable files are gone forever from the Forester website. However, I have discovered that I am able to link to PDF versions of the actual pages on which the profiles originally appeared.

Love that technology...

I have just found out that because of some changes at the Huntsville Forester website, the links to individual profiles now lead to the paper's main page. For the time being, if you want to read a profile, you'll have to search for the name of that person on the newspaper site. 

Sorry! If and when it is possible, I will correct all the links so they work again. 

Thanks again for your interest in the Muskoka Mosaic. Incidentally, this is my last week as copy editor of the Huntsville Forester, and I will be the subject of the Mosaic for Wednesday, January 27, 2010. Enjoy!

So long, farewell

After two and a half years and about 120 profiles, it is time for me to take a break from the Muskoka Mosaic and focus more on my own fiction writing.

It has been a rare pleasure to get to know so many members of my community and to introduce them to their neighbours. Thank you to everyone who has suggested a person to profile, agreed to be a profile subject, or let me know that you were reading each week.

New Forester employee Pamela Steel will continue with my brainchild starting next week, and you will be able to read her profiles on the newspaper's website. I wish her well and look forward to learning more about the spectacular mosaic of people who make up Huntsville.

Thanks again.
