. . . by the Union-Tribune alumni blogster prompted me to recall, and then to write, this.

It was my writing of a book made possible by a 1967 Canadian centennial grant matched by the H.J. Heinz Co. that financed a six-week vacation to California I cajoled out of my newspaper boss and that convinced me we had to move there.

Titled “The Tomato Capital,” it was (is, if there are any copies around anywhere) a history of the southern Ontario city of Leamington on the north shore of Lake Erie that’s the HQ of the Heinz company’s Canadian operations.

More recently, I collaborated in San Diego with a TV anchor and two daily newspaper columnists with whom many 919ers are familiar to write “Close Encounters With the 4th Estate,” which is a bit more readable and was much more fun to produce.
