Sara Alvarado

My favorite story from the year was the story about Rebecca Staebler and Hubbub. The more interviews I conduct the more I hear her name come up. She is an inspiration and a positive force within the community.

Nancy Keaton

My favorite story was Dolly Hughes: A Lesson on Facing Your Fears. Every time I think about avoiding something just to stay in my comfort zone, or because I’m scared, I think of Dolly. She taught me that I should never stop learning or trying new things.

Nikki McCoy

The story about Rose Bowman was the first LewisTalk story I read. And it made me happy for many reasons. One, I know the author and was glad to read her voice on the page. Two, I was stoked to see the Talk platform growing. We have such a unique platform and it made me proud that we can now service our neighbors to the south. I truly believe the work we do as writers, editors, and marketers is a service to our community and I am grateful to see stories shared and businesses grow. Third, Rose’s story was super inspiring. What a badass woman! It made me think of things I wouldn’t have otherwise, and it was cool to learn about our neighboring Rotary club.

The article I wrote on Santa Lucia is my favorite so far.  Justin Page showed me what it means to go to the source in providing a product people want and enjoy. He cares that every person in the supply line of something as simple as coffee, loves the part they play and makes a decent living doing it.
