My New Column: Stiles Thomas

As most of you may know, Stiles & Lillian Thomas moved to Massachusetts this month after living in Allendale for more than 70 years -- and more than 95 years in Stiles' case.

To mark their departure, I wrote a tribute column for The Record. If the link is not here, it's because I'm traveling.

In the meantime, you can go to to and do a search -- or buy the Thursday paper.

In the photo above, Stiles is installing one of the hundreds of bluebird boxes that he put up all over North Jersey and beyond.
