Growing up in the 1950”s and 60”s in a small upstate Ny city, the author has interacted with many of the community's leading lights, and has lots of stories to tell, and reminiscences to share. It could be a book about anywhere Usa, and in reading the compendium of columns, the reader will get to know people they don't know, and will feel as if they did know them. John Sullivan is good at giving eulogies, and good at telling stories, particularly about people he has known and admired. Each brief biographical sketch gives you not only an understanding of the person and their times, but a feel for the contributions their lives made in the overall quality of life in their communities. As a daughter of one of the subjects wrote to the author, “You gave my mother a great giftrecognition for her life's achievements She was uplifted by your telling of her story, and we are forever grateful to you for putting the cherry on top of her career.” Memories, in the end, are all we have, and the sweeter the memory, the more appreciation there is for lives well lived. There are lots of sweet memories, and life's lessons learned in this book. The author hopes you enjoy reading about them as much as he enjoyed writing about them.

About the Author:

The author, John T. Sullivan Jr., has had a long and distinguished career in law, politics, higher education, and more recently, journalistic punditry. A native of Oswego, N.Y., a small upstate city on Lake Ontario (pop-20,000), he grew up in an area of the city called the “Forks of the Road”, a working class neighborhood close to the harbor area, and later became the Mayor of his hometown (1987-91). He and his late wife Charlotte raised four daughters in a large rambling Victorian house in an upscale Oswego neighborhood, which was in marked contrast to his more modest “Forks of the road” upbringing. This book is the outgrowth of a series of columns he wrote for the local daily newspaper, the Oswego Palladium Times. His monthly column is titled “Forks in the road”. It is a collection of stories about people he knew growing up, and as an adult. Many of these people have been leading lights in the community, and the life lessons learned as a result of interaction with the subjects of his columns are sometimes profound, often amusing, and occasionally inspirational. They are always, at least , very interesting. A practicing attorney for nearly forty years, he taught college level courses in NYS Politics and US government, and Co-Chaired the NYS Democratic Party. He now resides in Saratoga Springs, practicing law on a part time basis. He writes opinion columns for the Albany Times-Union monthly, and has had several columns published in the NY Post, NY Daily News, and Syracuse Post Standard. He was a regular columnist for the Joplin Globe ( Mo.), and the Pittsburg Ks. Morning Sun. He is also the author of a soon to be published autobiography “What Color is Your table? “Memoirs of a small town Mayor with big time ideas”.
