Healthy Living

A column about health related issues, whether it be what’s involved in seeing a nutritionist, what foods we should eat (and not eat), or what type of exercises we should be doing – we will examine it.

Friendly Faces

On our travels, we encounter numerous people from all walks of life. On our Friendly Faces page we will feature half a dozen of these people with a photo and a short write-up about them – to help us all get to know our neighbors.

Let’s Talk Business

Every month a different (local) business will be featured in our two page business section. The business’ story will be told, in an effort to get to know the people behind the business, the history, in addition to the services that that business provides.

Restaurant Review

Nothing beats a great steak with a twice-baked potato, slice of pizza done just right, chicken marsala dinner where the chicken is so tender that you don’t need a knife, or a chocolate lava cake with fresh made whipped cream. In this monthly feature we are in search of the ‘gastro-great’ to satisfy our tastebuds. We venture out to the numerous fantastic local eateries in search of that amazing bite of gooey goodness. Our feature could be that of the top five star restaurant or that of the local pizza joint – or anything inbetween. We look forward to ordering off the many menus that await us.

Artist Profile

This region is home to many an artist, some more famous than others. We will feature both the traditional fine artist, as well as the non-traditional artist. We will explore and visit a new artist every month and feature them on a two page spread, showcasing their work and telling their unique story – a story just as unique and different as their art is.

Historical Feature

It all began somewhere, but where? The history of a place is integral to where that place is today. Every month we will examine and feature a different part of the curious history of this area.

Business Snapshot

Every month we will feature four different businesses, giving a quick glimpse of that particular business. What are they about? What product or service do they provide, to whom and in what area? There are probably a ton of local businesses that we don’t even know about. It is our mission to bring them to your attention.

Columns

Every month we feature four advice columns from various experts within their specified field. This includes, but is not limited to, insurance, animal care, health and beauty, marketing, and much more.
