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.

Mike Taveroff with his wife Cheryl in front of their original Moondance store at 249 George Street in downtown Peterborough in 1975. One of the reasons Mike decided to close the store in 2018 and retire was the death of Cheryl from cancer the previous year. Shortly after retiring, Mike was himself diagnosed with cancer and, after initial treatment made him ill, he decided to halt future treatments in favour of palliative care.
