ur popular Spotlight on Business section not only acts as an annual yearbook of Valley businesses, but also shines a spotlight on the people who work behind the counters, windows and cubicles of our businesses. Spotlight also underscores how we here in the Valley are all connected. The smiling people on these pages are the owners, managers and employees who keep our business community running every day. With only ‘three degees of separation’ here in the Valley, most of the people on these pages are probably your neighbors, friends or relatives. Chances are that your families attended school together. They are your community. We hope you enjoy this tour of local business. As we must all support each other, the next time you need a certain product or service, please take the next step and visit one of our Spotlight advertisers, see what they have to offer and better get to know their faces and their businesses.
