Well this has certainly been a different kind of spring! From 70 degrees to snow showers all in the same week — that is what I call one extreme to the other. We want to show our support for our local weatherman by letting you know more about him in this issue. Ryan Vaughn has been with us during all kinds of crazy weather. Get to know more about him by reading his story. If you see him around town, give him a pat on the back and let him know how much we appreciate the forecasts he provides and the comfort he gives us during the storms by keeping us informed of potentially impending danger. I am sure Ryan would say it is hard to predict Mother Nature, but we certainly think he does an excellent job of doing just that.
Planning ahead in your business can sometimes be equally challenging. Dr. Myleea Hill shares with us some insight about planning an advertising budget for your small business. Most small business owners know a lot about the products they sell or the services they offer and find that they need some assistance in day to day operations and planning a successful advertising campaign. Each month Dr. Hill provides helpful information to successfully market your business. We are very proud to bring you this resource each month.
Meet our featured business professionals and learn more about Cobb and Company in this issue. It is professionals like these that keep Jonesboro growing and thriving.
Speaking of growing and thriving, our gardening article this month will help you plan a successful flower garden by grouping flowers and plants with similar needs together.

While it is still a little longer until Spring is official - I can feel it in the air. People are hurrying and scurrying around preparing for all the spring events. One such event is Charity Ball hosted by the ladies of Jonesboro Junior Auxiliary. These ladies always do a fabulous job in turning an ordinary venue into a breathtaking escape. If you have never attended, this might just be your year. As of this writing, tickets are still available.
Proceeds from the event go to fund the various service projects that benefit the children in the Jonesboro area. Another such upcoming event is the Alzheimer’s Association Amethyst Gala to be held in April. The Rotary Club hosts their annual “Pot O Gold” fundraiser on March 16th - a ticket gets you in the drawing for the $10,000 giveaway. Support the good work these organizations do by attending one or all of these events. Be sure to drop by the First National Bank Arena on April 4th for the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce Business Expo - you will see a great representation of what Jonesboro area businesses have to offer.
The United Way dinner on March 15th should be a fun evening. Professional football player Demario Davis will be here to share his story about his work through his non-profit and United Way Worldwide. You can find more information in our story. This issue is full of interesting articles about everything from gardening to creating a logo, sensory learning for children and eating healthy. Meet our business professionals and learn more about why they thrive in Jonesboro. Also in this issue we profile a local business - the Interventional Pain Management Center - read about the concept behind this philosophy of treating the source not just the symptom of pain. We are looking forward to sharing more stories with you. Check us out on Facebook where over 1500 loyal followers keep up with our stories online. Or share your printed copy with your neighbor. CC Magazine wants to be your “go to” magazine for informative articles that inspire you to thrive.

The calendar shows September…again. I am not quite sure how the seasons seem to pass so quickly, yet the hot days of summer seem to be so long. School is back in full swing and Fall sports are well underway. If you have traveled between Jonesboro and Paragould lately, then you are well aware of the continued improvements. One such business that continues to exhibit growth is owned by Chris Gamble. In this issue you can get to know Chris and find out what he is doing on that land next to his furniture store in the curve. This new venue is a welcomed addition to the landscape.
Drop by Gamble Home Furnishings and check it out. Chris has been very dedicated to promoting “shop local” and also supports the community in many other ways. Growing a business requires a great deal of dedication. Dr. Myleea HIll discusses “word of mouth” advertising. While beneficial, you may not be able to rely solely on this method of advertising. We are featuring as our Business Person of the Month - Holly Acebo. Holly is another fully committed individual who is dedicated to family, her local business and community.
Originally from Canada, Holly has made Jonesboro her home and continues to grow their family owned business, LensMasters, in downtown Jonesboro. Also get to know the Young Professionals of our community. Visit them at their place of business and tell them you met them in CC Magazine. Are you thinking about adding a pet to your family? Or do you have young children who visit that might need some help learning how to handle your house pets? Lisa Cameron gives us some pointers about how to make a smooth introduction of a new pet with your small children. Need a few ideas for healthier eating habits? The Cardiologist’s Wife, Lisa Tedder, brings us some fishy ideas for meal time. Dr. Andy Snider shares some insight into the Keto Diet. Remember it is up to you to take care of your body.
