Five decades after penning their first “Focus on Nature” column for Times/Review Newsgroup, Paul and Barbara Stoutenburgh are calling it a career.
Times/Review president Troy Gustavson sat down with the Cutchogue couple for a Q&A that will be published in Thursday’s issue of the Riverhead News-Review. In the interview, they answer questions about their 61 years of marriage and five decades of collaboration on the column.
A complete transcript of the interview will appear Thursday afternoon on riverheadnewsreview.com.
Here’s a brief video of the couple discussing the process of writing the column — they once did everything by hand — and how difficult a task it became in recent years.
