Happy New Year to our readers!

Another year is behind us and 2016 is here and we are ready! We are excited to get the ball rolling into the new year and make some positive changes, a greater impact in our communities and continue to focus on the good people, places and things that happen in the mountains!

We have recently launched a new website with more content than we’ve ever had. It is rich with all of the things that make this the best place in the south to call home. We are going to be better able to serve our advertisers and our community with this online presence. Already it is buzzing with traffic; we have partnered with Locable, a community minded company, to create a website that is functional and effective. Come grow with us!

With the holidays behind us, and spring only 80 days away, let’s enjoy winter. Sit by the fire, hopefully watch it snow (not too much and no ice please, God), make a list of all of the spring projects you’d like to complete or hire a professional to do and go ahead and make that call; now is the time to schedule and sometimes do those projects. We are affiliated with some of the best and are always willing to offer a referral, just give us a call.

It’s also the time of year to get you on the right path to better health. I myself have done just that recently and it feels good! Making healthy decisions is good for the body and the mind! A healthier body and mind lends itself to a happy soul and what better way to start the year! Make this one of your best and stick with us; it’s only getting better around here!

Be your best!
