  • I would have to say my favorite article was about the diabetic bicyclist. Getting to know McKenna McKee and her family was a blast and I enjoyed publicizing an athlete and a sport that does not get a lot of recognition. – Rene Ferran
  • The Ohana Farms Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner article was live for about three hours when the subject of the article, Carolyn Carpio, called me crying: someone had already read the article and contacted her promising $300 for gift cards.  It’s hard not to feel that on that day, with those simple words, we did something right. – Suzan Heglin
  • I enjoyed Elizabeth R. Rose’s Hidden Bricks article. My parents live in an old house and I would routinely find bricks stamped with the Hidden emblem and wonder what the deal was. – Ben Serna-Grey
