Reader requests more Valley heritage

Dear Editor,

Came across your paper on the internet by accident (now on my bookmarks). Love some of your articles and old photos. I am interested to see more history of the area and residents. Currently, I am trying to put together articles on “Cybulski’s”. Wonder if you would be able to feature something surrounding them — Cybulski dairy, garage, etc. as well as Cybulski’s in Killaloe, etc.

Shall be checking in and hope to see old history! I feel newspapers are the ones keeping history alive by reporting news that someday will be good reference material!

For example, the photo above of Frank G. Cybulskie’s General Store in Barry’s Bay (from may cite a shared name not relevant to this reader’s research. Please reply in the comments section below if you can assist.
