This is our last issue of 2013. On behalf of our entire staff here at The Beacon, I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a truly happy and prosperous 2014. This past year we celebrated our 30th anniversary of providing our readers local news and information designed to help you live here … BETTER! That is our mission. As always, we ask that you send us your news items to help us become even more involved in our communities. Happy Holidays everyone!
