Best of the Best

Dear Readers,

This is it–the 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards issue! We asked, and you answered and gave us an intimate look at the best that the Northland has to offer. With nominations in 54 categories, your votes gave us a better picture of what matters most to our friends and neighbors. It’s been fun getting to know the businesses, and I’m looking forward to calling on all that the Northland has to offer the next time I need a plumber, doctor, or glass of wine.

October is, of course, also fun for other reasons. It’s time to grab that thermos of hot spiced cider and head to the pumpkin patch! Although my daughter celebrated her first Halloween snuggled between her Gigi and me, watching It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, I’m just a tad bit more excited this year as we venture out into Trick or Treat land! Where are your favorite Trunk or Treat locations? Tell me at and your suggestion may make an appearance on our Facebook page! Happy fall, friends and may the ghosts and goblins be kind to you this year!

Happy Halloween!
