Not sure if this link will work, but I went to the Wainwright Public Library's website and clicked on the link to their digitized newspapers (over 100 years's worth!), popped 'Fred Skinner' into the search and a whole page of mentions came up. Here is the url of the search results. Hope it works: http://canada.arcasearch.com/wcc/initArcaCode.asp
Funny; the first entry I saw was, "Fred Skinner was lucky enough to catch a young crane Saturday..."
It took me less than five minutes to access the info.
Good hunting :)
