Around the Bend is a popular local-news column written by Judy Steffes. The last 10 years Steffes has been informing the community with first-run stories including new businesses coming to town, updates on people and personnel, along with a dash of history and humor.
A hat tip to Steve Kilian for reaching out and realizing how important the column is to the community.
