    919 NOTES

    6 919 Magazine LV July | August 2013 www.919Magazine.com

    Hometown Stories: Keep Them ComingOne of the most rewarding aspects of my

    position with 919 Magazine is when I have the opportunity to meet our readers here in the community. I love it when they share their stories and insights, or tell me how the publication has made an impact in their life.

    Recently a local grandfather expressed his delight about reading a recent Field Trip article on the observation deck at Raleigh-Durham International Airport and how he now has a special place to watch airplanes with his grandson. I met a woman at the gym who made an entre from a Food Break recipe we featured, and was so excited that it was such a big hit with her family. Kids often come up and ask me how they can have their picture in 919 Magazine and are thrilled when I say its as simple as sending one in (to info@919Magazine.com).

    Sharing hometown stories, introducing new friends and neighbors and seeing familiar faces thats what were about and how we are keeping it local in Leesville.

    Speaking of local, we start off with an up close look at one of the most famous landmarks in North Raleigh: The one and only Big Red, The Angus Barn. We sit down with Owner Van Eure, who shares many details on the rich history of this legendary restaurant beginning on page 34.

    Other features to catch in this issue include: A profile of Hilburn student Sean Michael Thomas and

    his road to Washington. Find him on page 14. On page 16, a feature on volunteers Jay and Susan

    Vick, newer members of the community and already giving their full support to the Leesville Pride.

    A look at the Crawford family, who moved to the Leesville community 18 years ago and found the hometown they were seeking. Their story begins on page 18.

    An intriguing story about how Diane Covington reaches young people with music hoping in some small way to make a personal connection and influence their lives. Its on page 12.

    For car racing enthusiasts with no time to get to Charlotte, an exciting Field Trip report on Orange County Speedway. We take you to pit row and beyond. Once home to a Busch Series race, this live car racing venue is alive and thriving and very close to Leesville. Buckle up and race over to page 46.

    And finally, be sure to catch our list of the Raleigh areas Independence Day activities on page 11. We provide a few choices on where to go and what to do this 4th of July holiday.

    Whatever you are doing this summer in the 919, we want to hear about it. Please stay connected with us through Facebook and Twitter, or simply drop us an email or send in your photos to info@919magazine.com. Because if its important to you, its important to us. This is 919, where we all Live, Work, and Play.

    Sincerely,

    SB SarverPublisher
