Weird Winthrop, Strange Tales of a Haunted Hamlet first appeared in The Winthrop Sun-Transcript on November 2, 2000. Since then, the column has appeared on a fairly regular basis each month featuring a new story of strange phenomenon unique to Winthrop, Massachusetts. Weird Winthrop stories features a strange blend of bizarre incidents grounded in historical perspective. Readers may choose to disregard the recounts as fiction...but do so at their own risk. If the concept sounds familar it may be that you are one of the few who read its predecessor, which appeared in the now-defunct Route 1 Magazine, it was called, as you might have expected... Weird 1, Strange Tales of a Haunted Highway. Both columns are the result of relentless research, intrepid interviews and persistent pursuit of the truth (not to mention alliterative assault of the reader) by one reporter hell-bent on exposing stories that no one else cares enough to cover. Or maybe they're just too busy to be bothered.
