This month, we bring you stories about local education— from high school to physical therapy assisting to training with star chefs.

The next best thing to eat, drink, wear, plant and build is what we’re writing about it. We couldn’t be happier to share your picks for our Best of Issue!

It’s finally real spring—even if the calendar tells us it started in March, and summer is right nearby. That’s enough to make anyone want to break out in song, and in this issue, we talk to several of our neighbors who do exactly that! Our themes for this issue are senior living and music and entertainment, and we’re honored to shine the spotlight on members of our community, younger people and elders, who do so much good in so many ways, including healing through music.
