Richmond Hill resident Lyman Deliguori, who works for Volkswagen but whose passion is home breweing, faces the questions this week:

There was a time when going off to summer camp meant learning how to build a campsite and rubbing two sticks together to make a fire. And while many boys and girls have become rooted in a tech-driven world, a place still exists where they can experience the great outdoors just as their parents did before them.
Trevor Johnson, a naturalist at Fort McAllister Historic Park, faces the questions this week:

The Richmond Hill History Museum isn't shabby per se. In fact, it's in much better condition than one might expect given it once housed a bevy of kindergarteners in the 1940s and '50s, and later the office workers of a bustling paper company.
