I thank all of you for your continued readership and support as I navigate to working independently to showcase athletes, teams, and recreational opportunities in Glengarry County, the city of Cornwall, and beyond.
Due to the costs of maintaining a website and generating content for it through my research, writing, and photography, I am exploring ways to make this endeavour sustainable.
I would prefer not to have to seek advertising, especially in the current economic environment, as I know local businesses are under immense pressure. In addition, I would like to ensure you receive the most helpful content, easily and in a pleasant format.
As such, I am currently posting my stories onto the independent publishing platform Substack. At present, the content I am posting is available for free, but in the future, key stories will be available only for paid subscribers. I hope that you will continue to support my work and understand that a small subscription fee is reasonable to keep this project going. Thank you. You can also opt to submit your e-mail address to receive stories directly in your inbox.
I very much enjoy covering local sports and shining a light on our athletes, and I am hopeful that I can continue to do that through my website (with content shared via social media). However, I am seeking your input to make this work.
Would you prefer to have the content available for free and see an advertisement on every post?
Or would you like to keep it advertising-free, instead paying a monthly or yearly fee to access the content?
The county’s junior ‘B’ hockey teams, the Alexandria Glens and Char-Lan Rebels, are meeting this week in the 2019 CCHL2 wildcard playoff series. Here’s a little video clip of some game one action, where the Rebels scored a 1-0 win, thanks to 34 saves from their goaltender, Grant Craig.
Week two of the SD&G high school football season kicked off today, with Holy Trinity hosting Glengarry. I was there shooting photos of the action and will have coverage in next week’s edition of The Glengarry News.
The game went into the books as a 34-6 win for the Falcons, who improve to 2-0, while the Gaels drop to 0-2.
This year’s edition of the Raisin River Canoe Race is set to take place Sunday, April 15, running the usual course from St. Andrews West, downstream through Martintown to Williamstown. Unfortunately for participants and spectators alike, the weather is looking decidedly un-spring-like.
I have a story in this week’s edition of The Glengarry News to help you get ready, and as usual, I will be on the river shooting photos of the action.
