Mike Sturdivant gives his local picks

Mike Sturdivant quickly learned that he doesn’t do quarantine well. The 2001 McKinley High School graduate is used to be being busy. For six years, he was the regional manager for Hattie Larlham and served as the nonprofit’s representative on the executive boards of several community organizations, including Compassion Delivered Inc., Gigi’s Playhouse, Love the Children’s Ministry and P.A.L. Mission.

Full of Thanks

Christine Seemann was sitting outside with her sister in their lawn chairs when they got the phone call about their mother. A nurse from the nursing home where their 81-year-old mother, Jackie Spitale, had been living for the past three years said Jackie had spiked a fever again and they couldn’t get it down with medicine.

Collyn Floyd gives her local picks

A blog post about local restaurants is what led Collyn Floyd to the dream marketing job she didn’t know she wanted. Floyd, a Missouri native who came to Stark County in 1999, had been co-authoring a lifestyle blog about all of her favorite places for food, fun and funky finds when a representative from Team NEO, a regional business development organization, asked her to write a post for its regional tourism site.
