Story of Picton still unfolding

In 1987, the year of Picton’s sesquicentennial, a soft cover book titled Picton Remembered was published in commemoration of this milestone event. Internationally recognized photographer Lloyd E. Thompson and Alan R. Capon, author and local historian, commissioned by the town’s Sesquicentennial Committee, produced the story of a town, through a series of “then and now” captioned pictures dating to the early 1900’s. Street scenes throughout the town were shown in vintage photographs, along with their contemporary counterparts.

Beyond the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

The world is currently fixated on two major threats. The first is the coronavirus pandemic, which in the immediate future will threaten the lives and livelihoods of millions of people. The second is climate change, which in the longer term will have even more devastating consequences if unchecked. Both are thoroughly deserving of the attention they are getting. In the midst of these preoccupations, however, there is one other threat that is being largely overlooked. That is the proliferation of nuclear weapons. The use of those weapons by any one country could precipitate a chain reaction that would drive our planet back to the stone age, with levels of death and destruction that could make the COVID-19 pandemic look like a Sunday picnic by comparison.
