Dunlop trickle

Sun Media's in-house Edward Dunlop Awards, announced almost a month ago, are still trickling onto the Internet.

Canada's largest newspaper chain, for unknown reasons, didn't release a complete list when the awards were announced April 22, so the wins have been trickling in from online newspapers publishing local wins.

Northumberland Today has just announced Pete Fisher, a Cobourg Daily Star photographer, won a spot news photo award for one of his many memorable Highway of Heroes processions along Hwy. 401.

Fisher, a 20-year photo vet, also received an honourable mention in the same category for the gunpoint arrest of a suspect at a Tim Horton's outlet.

Northumberland Today says Fisher hopes his late grandfather, a Cobourg photo studio owner, would be proud of his achievements in photography.

It says Fisher was "a driving force" in having the stretch of Highway 401 from Trenton to Toronto designated the Highway of Heroes.

"Every time I go to Trenton, I shed a tear," Fisher says.

Congrats, Pete. Your grandfather would be proud.
