Paul Rellinger a.k.a Relly is an award-winning journalist and longtime former newspaper editor still searching for the perfect lead. When he's not putting pen to paper, Paul is on a sincere but woefully futile quest to own every postage stamp ever issued. A rabid reader of history, Paul claims to know who killed JFK but can't say out of fear for the safety of his oh so supportive wife Mary, his three wonderful kids and his three spirited grandchildren. Paul counts among his passions Peterborough's rich live music scene, the Toronto Maple Leafs, slopitch and retrieving golf balls from the woods. You can follow Paul on Twitter at @rellywrites.

Chemong Shores Marina in Bridgenorth, which is adjacent to the James A. Gifford Causeway, has seen a large number of people this summer fishing from the bottom of the causeway beside, casting their lines between the large boats moored at the main pier. Not only can errant hooks snag on boat covers and cause damage, but owners are uncomfortable staying on their boats at night with so many people in close proximity.
