Last updated February 2006. This is all free lance work, but not a complete archive. In particular several Aktuelt "Back Page" columns are missing.

In spring 2006 I became the staff writer for Finger Lakes Community Newspapers and immediately there was too much to post and it was no longer my property. Newer articles are available at the Ithaca Times site, under News and Arts.
