A Family Business

The Milton Times was nurtured into existence by my nuclear family.

In 1995 my daughter, June, my son, Tim, and my mother, Mary Erwin, created the first issue of the paper. We each brought a different set of skills to the table.

Today the ownership of the paper belongs to me and my two children. But I’m the only one still sitting in the Times office.

June is the mother of two. She lives in New Hampshire where she works for the Salvation Army as a case manager and cares for my two adorable grandchildren. Tim is a psychotherapist who works as program manager for a special pre-school in Oakland, CA. He lives with in Muir Beach with a woman he calls his significant other.

Both of my children help keep the newspaper on track despite their distance and other priorities. They toss my own words back at me if I’m wobbling.
