Welcome to 2017! I always enjoy the optimism that seems to come with each new year. It is a natural time for new beginnings. No matter what mistakes or failures we had the prior year, it always seems that January 1 is a chance to start anew, wipe the slate clean and try again.

Twenty-sixteen was a year that many seem eager to put behind them, and understandably so. After a tumultuous election season, we now enter a new season as a country. However, the questions surrounding the uncertainty of our collective future are just beginning.

In this issue, we will attempt to bring some clarity to what the upcoming year may hold with regard to the Stock Market. We’ll also get some insight into how economic experts and small business owners in Cabarrus County feel about the change in administration.

In addition, we would like to welcome a new restaurant to Cabarrus County, Chez Francois, which is also our new sponsor for our Breaking Bread recipe feature. And our friends at Cannon Pharmacy are back to tell us about some exciting advancements in the pharmaceutical industry.

Finally, I would like to note that this month’s issue marks our 16th anniversary as a publication. In January 2001, we were facing our own new season. The future was unclear but, as we as a country are doing now, we decided to move forward. The results continue to overwhelm me.

Thanks to you, our readers, and of course, our advertisers, as we continue to be the premier magazine for the Cabarrus region. Thank you for your support and we look forward to heading into this new year together!

Happy New Year!

Jason Huddle
