October ’17

Jess vs. craft

Craft brewers—the heart and soul of this Oktoberfest issue—are small, independent and traditional. They’re passionate and driven. They treat every batch like an experiment that comes to a head (pun intended) at the precise intersection of artistic devotion and scientific experiment.

Laura Weisgarber gives her local picks

By her own description, 2015 was a “rough year” for Laura Weisgarber. Highlighted two years ago in The Canton Repository’s “Brave & Beautiful” section, the Jackson Township resident saw her job move out of town just days before she lost her mother to Alzheimer’s disease. A few weeks later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer—for the second time in the years since her battle against Hodgkins disease when she was a freshman at Ohio State University.

Paint your own pottery | Glazed and Amused

Bring the kids or spend an evening with friends painting a one-of-a-kind pottery piece at Glazed and Amused in North Canton. With more than 400 different shapes for you to choose from, the options are plenty. You paint and decorate the item, they fire it in the kiln, and you stop back to pick it up when it’s ready.

Thank You | Brave & Beautiful
