Hi Wylie the Walleye,

This is a very random question but I have to ask, I have seen many businesses on Facebook advertising and stating we should all support local businesses. Why do I not see these businesses in the Beacon? You are a small business also shouldn’t they support you as well by advertising?

Welll Helllllo Tonia K.,

That is a very good question! My friends Perchy Peach and Carl Catfish have asked me that themselves while we relax on the banks after a nice swim in Lake Erie through out Ottawa County. Often I wish I could reach more than the 25,000 readers a week to let them know that social media defiantly does not have the coverage of local stories like our own Beacon does. Many times my friends and I wonder if the community understands without the wonderful Beacon, local stories would be non existent. Let’s hope the small businesses of Ottawa County that are looking to expand their business and reach in the community starts seeing the value in our readership. I am sure NO ONE wants to see The Beacon go away.

Thank you and let’s continue to support each other, one for all and all for one!

Wylie Walleye and my wonderful friends.
