Pg. 8; Building for the Future by Ned Depew
A builder who can adapt to changing times is bound to succeed. The builder profiled has even expanded his horizons during what otherwise should have been a serious downturn to his professional career and is leading the way in innovative and creative building practices in our region.

Pg. 12; Perfectly Flawed by Frank MacGruer
People, wine and antiques all age, but the art of aging gracefully is not to be taken for granted. MacGruer explains how restoration work can be done in a manner to preserve the integrity and history of an antique. However, “perfect” may not be the ideal outcome.
