A Message from Jim Parker

It’s seems like every edition is a month in which we’re celebrating new beginnings of one sort or another.  This September, I want to extend a warm welcome to Clayton Matthews, owner of Peace, Love and Little Donuts, which has landed in the heart of Market Common.  Clayton is a personal friend of mine, and we’re excited for him and his family to put down business roots here, not least of all because of what he’s bringing us— edible goodies and his nitro coffee.  Don’t miss the Inside scoop on how Clayton got started.

I’m also grateful we have the opportunity to capture the words and infectious energy of Bill Hunsberger within the pages of this month’s issue.  I’ve known Bill for about fifteen years, we have both a business and personal relationship— he’s a positive and progressive thinker, the one in the group that makes people feel good, and he’s the most energetic and athletic 81-year-old man I’ve ever met.  You can read more about him and pickleball in the paper as well.

 Lastly, we are all so pleased with the progress we’ve achieved online— growing our social media presence, launching our interactive website and improving our interactive e-paper.  A lot of thought has gone into the creation, foundation, and intersection of these three things over the past 6-12 months, and we’re proud of the increased exposure this offers to our advertisers, as well as the opportunities it presents for greater connection among our community on a broader scale.  Branching out in the online world is another community driven business choice that compliments our print paper.  Now you have more than one way to enjoy the Insider and stay in the know with us.  Be sure to read our front page feature for more detail about why that’s relevant to you.  

Happy September.  

Jim Parker, Co-owner of Properties at the Market Common, Co-owner Insider at the Market Common
