PUBLISHER / PRESIDENT James W. Fancy PUBLISHER / VICE PRESIDENT David P. Hohendorf Administrative Assistant Carol Barr

With the publication of the 2010 edition of the West Oakland Directory, we mark the 28th year of this essential community guide for the lakes area. The West Oakland Directory and the Spinal Column Newsweekly are produced by the SCN Communications Group. Our group, independently owned, also publishes Oakland Lakefront magazine, reaching 17,000 lakefront homes county-wide six times each year; The Paper, our newest monthly publication reaching over 29,000 homes by direct mail in the Birmingham-Bloomfield area; Oakland Homes, a monthly real estate magazine; and the MonthlyAdvertiser, a direct mail monthly shopping guide reaching about 74,000 homes in the west Oakland area. With this year's edition, we are once again distributing 50,000 copies of the West Oakland Directory by inserting the annual publication into the home-delivered copies of the Spinal Column Newsweekly. The West Oakland Directory still remains the largest guide to life in the western portion of Oakland County and it reaches more local residents than any other similar publication. We have maintained our basic approach from past years in this year's edition, providing complete information on local communities, governments, schools, as well as county and state government. You will also find a comprehensive list of community groups which add to the fabric of community life in the west Oakland area. The community group information will also be placed on-line at www.spinalcolumnonline.com. Plus, the entire contents of this publication can be viewed in a flip-page format on the newspaper's website for the next year.
