It was January 2008 when then-publisher Kevin Kampman decided we would produce a monthly, glossy magazine. From that moment, we had four months to get it off the ground. Our first issue was proudly released in late April 2008 — 68 pages packed with positive local stories and targeted advertising aimed to readers in Stark County “living their best life.” Since that time, we’ve grown considerably — but continue to maintain our focus of highlighting the best about our community through great stories, advertising and special sections.
It all sounds pretty glamorous. From interviewing the “who’s who” of Stark County to conducting photo shoots and deciding what gets in the magazine — there’s certainly something alluring about putting together a monthly glossy publication focused on the best things of Stark County.
For many locals, it’s hard to believe that Glenmoor Country Club and surrounding homes began 20 years ago. Many people remember when the land started to be developed in the area surrounding the one-time monastary — and when golf legend Jack Nicklaus came to town for the opening of the golf course.
Ridgewood is a 2.5-square-mile area comprised of 290 houses and located fewer than two miles north of downtown Canton. The entire neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places — the only Stark County neighborhood with that distinction.
The fine details and craftsmanship found in a vintage home often give it a unique character, a sense that there is no other quite like it. For Judy Cebulko, it was one such detail that sold her and her husband, Ed, on their Georgian Baronial estate at 2601 Fox Hill Dr. NW in Hills and Dales.
For seven years, Ed and Judy Cebulko have owned what is still known by many as the T.K. Harris home in Hills and Dales. Stark County natives and Central Catholic graduates, the Cebulkos split their time between this home and a second residence in a suburb of Las Vegas. Ed is co-owner of Vegas Fastener Manufacturing and G2 Gaming in Las Vegas.
It was the mature trees and the way all the yards blend together like one big park in Hills and Dales village that drew Michael and Mischael McKenna to that neighborhood, where they have had two homes.
