Alan Gratias has been a resident of Prince Edward County for twenty years. He is a Waupoosian at heart and proudly flies the flag of North Marysburgh where he lives. He is a Montrealer and retired federal trade negotiator, but prefers to restore crumbling houses. Somewhere along the way he came to believe if we save our buildings, we save ourselves. He contributes detective dog stories and county profiles to 99.3 when he is not looking after ongoing deterioration.
