Tim Nimigan Ends Our Town Panel

After 20 years of making readers laugh from the opinion pages of the Napanee Beaver with his award-winning Our Town comic series, cartoonist Tim Nimigan is hanging up his pencil.

The Napanee (Ont.) Beaver breaks the news to its readers that Tim Nimigan‘s fortnightly humor panel Our Town will end with its November 23 appearance.

“The 20 years coming up was significant,” Nimigan said of his decision to end the series. I wanted to reach that. I feel a little bit now like I’m crawling to that. When I first started I never wanted to do every week. It was too much pressure. You finish one and you start to think of another. Every other week worked out fine for a number of years. More recently I started to feel like ‘is it my week already?’ sort of thing.”

Since its debut on November 26, 2003 Our Town has graced the opinion page of the Beaver every second week.
