Wow, What a Summer!—Several people/groups deserve our thanks for helping make this a fun and interesting summer: Donna Briggs and her team at Britt Festivals for an outstanding season, Maestro Teddy Abrams whose non-stop energy and enthusiasm reignited the Britt Classical Festival and helped set attendance records, Angela Warren, Britt’s Director of Performing Arts, the artists of Art Presence and the Artist’s Workshop for colorful exhibits, the Worcester family for the Sunday Farmers Markets, Mel & Brooke Ashland for bringing the Tea Kettle steam engine and our history home, Carolyn Kingsnorth, Larry Smith and Dirk Siedlecki for producing engaging History Saturday events, the Asante Foundation for the World of Wine Festival, and many others! There’s still summer fun ahead with Britt shows, Farmers Markets, Celebrates the Arts, the Jacksonville Health Fair, Smoked Salmon Festival and German Heritage Week/Oktoberfest!
If it quacks like a duck…it’s a magazine!
Over the past seven years, the Review has undergone numerous transformations making it more “magazine” than “newspaper.” Generally speaking, magazines, unlike newspapers, are published weekly or monthly, rely more upon advertising for revenue, include recent content rather than breaking news, have more attractive photos and cost more to produce. After countless tweaks, I’m proud that the Review’s print edition has morphed into a “lifestyle magazine,” – a title now adorning the cover. Between covers, be sure to keep-up-to-speed at JacksonvilleReview.com and on our Facebook page for all the happenings in Our Small Town with Big Atmosphere!
