Publisher’s Letter – Our Leaders

Publisher’s Letter

Our Fall issue will hit the stands as Greater Prescott’s trees approach their peak colors and feverish Halloween preparations continue on Mt. Vernon Street and everywhere else in our picturesque mountain hamlet — which has enough history to make it a convincing destination for this haunting time of the year. But the community’s dynamism is everywhere to be found thanks to the leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs, creators and others who have shaped it into one of the nation’s best places to retire, raise a family, visit, learn how to fly planes and engineer rockets, start a small business and do almost anything else we do in the course of our lives.

In our Early Summer issue we paid tribute to Prescott’s Men of Vision and now, as we have since we launched Prescott LIVING four years ago, we are using this issue to honor Women in Leadership (formerly Women in Business), our local leaders in business, government, education and philanthropy/nonprofits. They have worked individually and collectively to elevate the already high quality of life in our area by making sure we have the jobs, services and supplies so we’re all able to thrive.

Our ROX Interview subject, Prescott Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Sheri Heiney, excels at this, bringing new businesses into the fold and providing crucial support to the community. So do the 60-plus women featured in our special section. They share a love of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humboldt that lifts all residents into the magic of mile-high living.

This issue also is bursting with autumnal cheer and ideas for making your life happy, warm and safe as you indulge in sweaters, boots, crisp afternoon walks and pumpkin spice everything.

Our Home & Garden, Beauty & Style, Outdoor Adventures and Pets sections all have tips for accenting and celebrating the specific sights and sounds of fall and our Restaurant section puts the festive warmth of Mexican cuisine in the spotlight.

And since late autumn runs right into the holiday season, we’re already setting up our Winter issue. Who else can’t believe 2021 is almost over?
