A hometown newspaper with a local office, local owners & lots of local news

History mystery

The late Jack Finberg (center) is pictured, at right, training to make "slabs" for the Carlton County Vidette newspaper with two unidentified men. Finberg worked at the Vidette, then took a printing job at the Pine Knot newspaper in the mid-1960s. His son, David Finberg, shared some photos with the Pine Knot News. David's grandmother, Ruth Finberg, below, had a radio talk show in the 1970s called "Memory Lane," about the history of Carlton. David said the old Finberg house on Slate Avenue in Carlton is still standing.
