A Note from the Publisher:

“The days my gratitude exceeds my expectations, I have really good days.” Ray Wylie Hubbard.

So many things have exceeded our expectations since launching back into print in October, it has taken very little effort to be overwhelmed with gratitude. I would like to acknowledge some very special team members whose efforts have equaled those of anyone here at JTV:

Our advertising sales team: Mary Mulally, George Stanley, and Ed Heethuis. They have worked exceptionally hard because they believe in this publication, and without them doing what they do, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Our production team: Jeff Day (design) and Chelsea Van Es (website), – your gifts are as amazing as the patience you show your publisher. We’ve been working together on various projects going on 9 years now. You both are a priceless gift to this publication and to me, personally.

Our community: There seems to be no end to the creativity, kindness, and generosity of this big-hearted community. It is an immense honor to capture your stories and share them.


This spectacular photo, taken by Sandra Goodin at the 2023 Joshuas Honors Gala, captures Taunya Gagne during her engaging performance where she managed more hula-hoops than most people can even carry. Gagne and her team were honored at The Joshuas Honors Gala for Outstanding Outdoor Stage Production (Theater Category). If you ever have the opportunity to catch her “Crash and Ride Cabaret,” don’t miss it.
