Who We Are

Email Dave
Dave Forbes
Sports Editor, Turley Publications
A lifelong sports fan, Dave figured a career covering sports would be the next best thing to playing them. The Chicopee resident is new to the Turley team but brings seven years experience in journalism, most recently as sports editor for nearby Stonebridge Press. His favorite assignments have included covering the Tantasqua boys' varsity basketball team during the 2006-2007 season, not to mention the 2003 New England Patriots Super Bowl Championship parade and the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Championship parade. Dave is a 2000 graduate of Westfield State College with a major in Communication.

Email Tim
Tim Kane
Executive Editor
A 17-year veteran of the newspaper industry, Tim has been a part of the Turley team for two years now. He entered the trade with the goal to make a difference in the world by serving as a public informant and seeking the truth—and continues to work by that guiding principle today. His favorite assignment was breaking a series of stories in Ashland, Mass. about one man's battle with cancer and his quest to uncover the truth about a former manufacturer's decades of hazardous waste dumping in town. Tim has a BA from Fitchburg State College and attended the American Press Institute. Tim lives in Brookfield with his wife, Danielle, and their two sons, Timmy Jr. and Christopher. His pastimes include songwriting, drumming, writing fiction, cross-country skiing, hiking, trail maintenance, and volunteering for the Boy Scouts.

Jeanne Bonsall
Sales Representative
Jeanne has worked for Turley Publications for five years. Raised in South Texas, she has been a New Englander now for more than 20 years and claims to love all its seasons—even winter. She enjoys time with family, singing and golf. Jeanne says, "I have a job that suits my personality to the tee, as I can’t get enough of people! Each one of my customers (friends) are so different you could never get bored and helping them with their advertising needs helps me understand how business works in a whole."

Jacky recently became a grandmother to baby Alexander, who lives with his parents in the Boston area.
