Thank you to our State Farm
policyholders for voting us #1 for the
fourth year in a row. We appreciate your
continued confidence in our agency and
the work we do for you. For me and my
staff there is no greater reward than to be
recognized by those that we serve.
It is indeed an honor that we have been
voted the 1st Place winner of the Insurance
Agency category in the “Best of the Best
2011 Reader’s Choice” program conducted
by the Lake Orion Review. Receiving this
award never grows old and our #1 goal
continues to be to provide our
policyholders with unparalleled service.
In 2012, the Bill Kirchner State Farm
Insurance agency, located in the Village of
Lake Orion at 32 N. Broadway St., will
celebrate 32 years of serving Lake Orion
and the surrounding communities. Our
philosophy when we started was to provide
first class service and that has never
changed. Thank you for confirming to us
that our philosophy is still as important
today as it was 32 years ago.
Every year I say this, but it bears
repeating. This award would never be
possible without the help and support of
my licensed staff. They deserve all the
credit for this honor. Dana Klooster, Julie
Witherspoon and Candice Garner continue
to be the driving force behind any and all
success that comes to my agency. To
Dana, Julie and Candice, this reward
continues to demonstrate that our
policyholders think you are #1 and so do
I. Thank you for all your hard work.
We would like to invite anyone with
insurance needs; auto, home, renters,
condo, RV, business, life, or health
insurance, to give us a call at 248-693-
2464 or visit us at www.billkirchner.com.
We represent State Farm Insurance, the
#1 auto and the #1 home insurer in the
United States. In this 800#, call center,
never speak to a human world, if you still
value good service and prompt attention
for the money you spend on insurance,
we would like to show you why so many
of your friends and neighbors insure with
us. Stop by, call in, or click on and give
us a chance to be your insurance agency.
To our much appreciated policyholders,
thank you again for this honored award.
Thank You State
Farm Policyholders!
Thank you for voting us in as the best
of the best muffler repair shop for 2011.
This recognition is a great honor, and is
greatly appreciated.
As you may already know we
reopened under new ownership in
October of 2010. Other than a fresh
updated appearance we also became a
fully equipped repair shop to better serve
you. We now do all repairs to all makes
and models. From mufflers and brakes
to alignments and engine repair. You may
also like to know that our mechanics are
not payed on commission or do we have
any sales people. You will be taken care
of by our experienced staff to
accommodate all your needs with your
best interest.
More than the owner of Mr. Muffler
& Brakes, I am really a family man. My
pit crew at home consist of my lovely
wife, twin five year old daughters, and a
dog named Hotrod. You may bump into
us at local car shows, or race tracks. I
started off working my way through
school restoring hot rods in a body shop,
to big name dealers, then wrenching my
way behind the scenes of belle tire to
now owning my own business. I’m just
a car guy doing what I love to do.
New owner of Mr. Muffler appreciates votes
“Thanks for your support.
We appreciate your business!”

How wonderful it was for everyone at
LaVida Massage to hear that we had been
voted Best Massage in Lake Orion for the
second year in a row! said Stephanie Parenti,
owner of LaVida Massage of Lake Orion.
“We work very hard to give our clients
the best possible service. I am very proud
of my exceptional staff. We try and make
LaVida a comfortable place that clients enjoy
coming to. We’re professional, but easy
going. Our staff loves what they do and I’m
sure it shows in the service they provide to
our clients.” says Parenti.
LaVida Massage is a gender neutral,
professional, health and wellness clinic.
They are open 7 days a week with morning
and late night appointments available. They
have over 13 therapists on staff and can
accommodate same day and walk in
appointments.
“We believe that massage should be
accessible to everyone. Most of us have
stress, physical pain, or both. The most
natural way to address these issues is
massage therapy” says Parenti. “Massage
is proven to alleviate back and shoulder
pain, increase flexibility and improve
circulation. These bodily benefits help
everyone feel their best”.
That’s an easy thing to do at LaVida
Massage. They offer first time clients a 60min
massage session for only $39.95. For those
LaVida Massage brings you the
benefits of massage every day
clients who want to receive a massage on a
regular basis, the $49.95 Loyalty Program
is their best option. Although the name only
says Massage, LaVida also provides other
services. “We like to help people feel their
best. We offer facials, skin care and waxing
to address additional concerns our clients
may have” says Parenti.
In addition to their services, LaVida
carries some unique, Michigan made
products. “All of our body products are
made special for LaVida of Lake Orion.
My favorite is our massage butter because
it’s such a great moisturizer for the whole
body” says Parenti.
Check out their website at
lakeorion.mi.lavidamassage.com. You’ll be
able to read information about their massage
therapist and esthetians as well as book your
next appointment.

Mannie’s Bagel & Delicatessen in Lake
Orion is in their 8th year and going strong.
As a “Mom and Pop” shop, owners Annie
and Mark, and the entire staff, makes
everyone feel like
family. “We strive to
put out the best bagels
around. We keep the
oven hot all day so our
bagels are always
fresh!”
With over 30
varieties of bagels
including New
Yorkers and Bialys,
and 17 varieties of
their own whipped
cream cheese, there is
always something for
everyone’s taste. Add
that to a great cup of coffee, 9 flavors
brewed daily, and everyone is happy!
Using innovative ideas from their
employees along with their own, Annie and
Mark constantly create new menu items.
“Everything we do is with our customer
in mind - what do they want, what would
they like?” they said.
In addition to New York style
sandwiches, specialty sandwiches, and the
colossal Sandwich Extreme, you can now
get a “sandbox” which includes a sandwich,
bag of chips and a beverage. Also on the
menu, they have added smoked whitefish,
smoked whitefish salad, creamed
herring, individual salads, pepperoni
sticks, and the popular MANzoNIE
(Mannie’s version of a calzone).
Mannie’s is proud to support the local
school districts, sports teams, churches,
synagogues and various organizations in their
fund raising efforts.
Along with that,
Mannie’s also works
with the film industry.
Their customer base
comes from as far as
West Bloomfield and
Lapeer and continues
to grow as they
welcome new faces
daily.
Mannie’s does a
wide array of catering
for all occasions
offering breakfast and
lunch trays, deli-trays,
fish trays, dairy trays
and veggie, fruit and dessert trays. Their
prices are very reasonable, and you ALWAYS
get more than you’ve bargained for.
Mannie’s can be found on their website,
www.manniesbagel.com, and on Facebook.
You can also sign up for their mailing list to
receive exclusive coupons, specials, notices
of new or featured items, etc.
Thanks once again to all of our devoted
customers and friends for voting us #1 for
Best Bagels for the 3rd year. For those who
haven’t experienced the flavor of a “real”
bagel, we are located on Lapeer Road in the
Lakeview Plaza across the street from Tire
Warehouse (248) 814 - 0419. See our ad
for hours and an appreciation coupon.
Mannie’s Bagel & Deli Did It Again!
As the owner of Hi-Hill Lawn
Service, I would like to thank the
community for their generous votes.
It has been a huge honor for
myself and my staff and we were
truly surprised.
I have always taken great pride
in the quality of workmanship Hi-
Hill provides and will continue the
same work ethic each day.
Our staff is probably the best
around and without their hard work
this award would have never been
received.
I hope you call on us for your
snowplowing this winter and all
your lawn service needs in the
spring. We will continue working to
earn your trust and respect.
-Thanks again, Steve Stoll

8 Wed., December 28, 2011 The Lake Orion Review Best of the Best Section
The staff at Spa on the Lake would
like to thank our loyal customers and the
public for once again giving us this Best
of The Best award. We appreciate the
recognition and praise. Our goal at Spa
On The Lake is to be the best spa in the
area and we strive each day to meet it.
We have certain items we feel are
the most important in achieving the best
for our clients. The first is PRICE,
which is reflected in our new pricing
structure. We are fully competitive with
other spas in the local area. Our FA-
CILITY is one of our best assets. Be-
ing situated on Lake Orion in our
beautifully decorated 1800’s Victorian
house, sets us apart from others and
provides a tranquil and relaxing atmo-
sphere for our customers. Most impor-
tant to us are the STAFF and CLIENTS.
When you visit our spa you will find a
friendly, experienced staff that is dedi-
cated to making your experience as en-
joyable as possible. We want you to
come back, time and time again.
Our mission at Spa on the Lake is to
always exceed your expectations. We
appreciate your loyalty and support and
thank you again for this Best of The
Best honor.

www.spaonlakeorion.com or call today
for your appointment: 248-693-2999.
A few years ago during a strategy
meeting on how can Golling Buick
GMC better serve the surrounding
communities it was decided that a
Quality Oil change center was the
answer. Since we were getting ready
to undergo a massive face lift of the
showroom and service aisle, this was
the time to add such a center to our
facility. In March 2011 we opened the
Tire and Lube Center.
The philosophy of our Lube and Tire
center is slightly different than most oil
change centers. First, if you will notice
we do not call it a Quick lube. Our
automobiles are likely the second most
expensive investments we have, and
reliable transportation is crucial in our
“time poor” society. So Quality is far
more important than speed. However
the design of our unique facility lends
itself for extreme efficiency to stream
line the process. Second who better to
perform the basic maintenance
required for your vehicle than factory
trained technicians, using quality GM
oil and filters. And third and most
important is our complementary 27
point inspection on every car. It is
knowing that everything is in proper
operating condition on your car, no
matter the make or model, is crucial
for peace of mind driving.
We are very proud that our
community has voted our Lube and Tire
Center “The Best Oil Change Center”.
We take this honor very seriously and
invite anyone who has not experienced
our New and Unique Lube and Tire
Center to stop by and meet Brad
Bednarski, our Center Manager, and his
staff.
They will appreciate the opportunity.

The Lake Orion Review Best of the Best Wed., December 28, 2011 9
The entire staff at Lake Orion Self-
Storage would like to thank the voters
for voting Lake Orion Self-Storage the
“Best of the Best” for the fourth year
in a row. In a time when customer
service has vanished from most
organizations, we continue to offer an
unparallel level of service and storage
expertise. Our goal is to make every
customer, vendor, and employee feel like
they are part of the family. Lake Orion
Self-Storage has been family owned and
operated since our doors opened.
Duri ng t he 2011 year, several
features were added to improve our
customers’ storage experience. First,
we replaced the electronic keypads at
the gate to improve curb appeal and
make it easier to access the storage
facility. Second, we went “Green”,
replacing all the outdoor lighting with
brighter, high-efficient fluorescent
l i ght i ng t hat reduces energy
consumption by nearly 40%. The
facility “glows” at night thanks to this
new system, and the customers love it.
Finally, we added Mary Matthews, a
Best Storage: Lake Orion Self-Storage
seasoned real estate sales professional,
to our staff. Mary lives in Lake Orion
and brings broad expertise in real
estate, moving and sales which are
essential when customers need advice
on the moving process. Her personality
will make you smile and her broad
knowledge of moving and storage will
make you feel at ease with your choice
of Lake Orion Self-Storage.
Being a good steward of the
community brings responsibilities such as
supporting the different social,
educational and athletic program. Our
track record of support includes
donations of time and money to the LO
Chargers, LO Youth Football, LO Senior
Center, Business Expo, Chamber of
Commerce, and One Warm Coat
Foundation. We are excited to
participate in these programs again during
the 2012 calendar year!
Our motto is to always be #1 in Security,
Service, and Locations. Stop by and see
for yourself why we were voted #1 for
the fourth year in a row. Have a Merry
Christmas and Happy New Year!

We are so excited to be voted best of the
best for 2011. Kids Corner is a smaller
sized child care center that bases our beliefs
on the fact that every child is unique in their
learning ability and style. Therefore we base
our curriculum and activities around the
children’s needs. It is better to prepare the
child for the path, not the path for the child.
We believe that there are many
wonderful effects of playing and learning
in Natural settings. In today’s society our
children are becoming over exposed to
electronic games, computers, internet,
television, cell phones, etc.
It is our job as educators and parents to
see that our children have access to
experiences with nature. Many studies have
been done that show that being in natural
environments can help children recall
information, help them learn creativity;
improve their sense of wonder, and so
much more. Contact with nature also helps
children’s emotional wellbeing by helping
them understand that they are a part of a
wider system of life.
These are some of the effects of playing
and learning in a natural setting:
1. Stimulates all aspects and stages of
child development
2. Stimulates informal play experiential
learning, and natural learning cycles.
3. Stimulates imagination and creativity
in a special, boundless way.
4. Helps children feel good about
themselves, enhances self esteem.
5. Provides flexible and forgiving
settings.
6. Centers children in the environment
where they live.
Kids Corner provides a natural outdoor
setting on one acre of land. The children
are surrounded by trees, rocks, sand, and
grass. They experience the wonder of
nature and we bring nature indoors too. We
collect leaves, paint rocks, gather sticks for
houses, and make leaf turkeys. There are
many ways to integrate nature into our lives.
It’s really important to get children away
from the T.V., the video games and the
computer and leave your cell phones at
home. We have the four seasons in
Michigan that allow for all sorts of play and
learning.

Biddle at (248)814-9096. Or visit

12 Wed., December 28, 2011 The Lake Orion Review Best of the Best Section
When your potential customers include
pretty much everyone, you need to know your
business, says Josh Kreger, vice president
and general manager for Mattress King Sleep
Centers, with seven Michigan locations. Af-
ter all, everybody sleeps, and correspondingly,
everyone can benefit from a great mattress.
“We are a very friendly, customer-service
oriented business that focuses on getting our
customers the very best night’s sleep,” Kreger
says. The business has been family owned
and operated throughout its 30-year history
and offers mattresses by Serta (which are
made in Michigan), Simmons and Tempur-
pedic, along with metal and wood beds and
headboards.
“Our business is sleep, and while there
have been changes in mattresses with the
growth and popularity of specialty sleep prod-
ucts like Tempur-pedic, the main things stay
the same and that is listening to our custom-
ers’ needs and fitting them into a mattress
that will allow them a great night’s sleep for
years to come,” Kreger says. According to
Kreger, Mattress King has been in business
for three decades because every customer
who comes in the store can count on en-
countering these three important things: Ex-
pertise. Sales staff members are focused on
fitting the customer into the right bed rather
than just making a sale and moving on to the
next person, Kreger says. “The personalized
service we offer gets people sleeping better,
and thus makes them more productive at their
jobs and in their daily lives,” he adds. Some-
thing for every budget. With three decades in
business, Mattress King has built relationships
with mattress vendors that allow the sleep
shops to offer unique products and prices
that other places can’t match.
“We offer all price ranges in mattresses,
and people can be confident they won’t get a
better deal elsewhere while getting the best
expertise in sleep,” Kreger says. “We focus
on the customer and their needs, and offer
products that can fit anyone’s budget.”
Low-pressure atmosphere. No one likes
being followed around by a high-pressure
sales person and at Mattress King, you can
“rest assured” that will never happen. Cus-
tomers are encouraged to relax, lie down, and
try out products to find the best fit, Kreger
says. Top Traits With a total staff of 22, Mat-
tress King expects to do limited hiring of sales
staff in the upcoming months, according to
Kreger. When hiring, the company looks for
those who can listen, learn and smile. “When
we hire sales personnel, we look for some
key things. Foremost is the ability to listen
first and talk second,” Kreger says. “Also,
we look for people who are open-minded and
willing to learn. They should have the dispo-
sition to offer great customer service with a
smile.”
Key to longevity rests on great service
This is the third year that my staff and
I have been recognized as best dentist. We
are truly humbled by the honor of receiving
this title. It is a joy and a privilege to serve
the wonderful community of Lake Orion
and surrounding communities.
As always, our goal is to provide
exceptional dental care for each and every
patient we treat. The icing-on-the-cake,
is to receive this prestigious honor, while
doing something we love to do each day.
It is apparent to our patients that we care
about one another and also them as an
individual. Each staff member brings a
unique quality that compliments our group
as a whole. We enjoy using our talents to
serve the community and contribute to the
health and dental wellness of our patients.
Many thanks for voting us as Best
Dentist, or as we like to say…Best Dental
Office. Year one was a thrill, year two was
a surprise , year three is a HUGE honor!
‘Thank you’ from Dr. John Blake D.D.S.

of 2001 we have strived to provide cutting
edge, progressive physical therapy. In an effort
to better serve our patients and community
we are expanding our current clinic by adding
almost 2000 square feet, which will allow us
to offer medically managed fitness programs,
classes and new equipment for both therapy
patients and fitness enthusiasts.
Our patients see a licensed physical
therapist each and every visit! At HealthQuest,
therapy is a hands-on experience and we
make every attempt to schedule you with the
same therapist for every appointment. We
place a high value on the therapist /patient
relationship.
We will continue to be open 6 days a week
and offer extended hours, Monday-
Friday5:30am to 8:00pm and Saturdays 8am-
1pm. With the additional space we are
expanding the area for our physical therapy
patients and will be able to offer services for
health and fitness. These programs will include
individual and group training sessions, sport
specific training and educational classes. We
will continue to provide free consultations to
assess and assist community members with
injuries and to determine which type of
programwill meet their needs and goals. We
actively participate in the support and
development of youth and local high school
athletics.
As directors and owners (Phil Krause and
Dan Cady) are proud to live in Lake Orion
and have long standing relationships with our
neighbors and local businesses. We are
honored to be recognized by our neighbors,
friends and peers. We thank you for the
recognition and we promise to keep our motto
of “motivating, educating and rehabilitating”
each person that walks through our doors.
Thank you again for the honor.
Mr. Drakos is honored and humbled again
by being given this award the second year in a
row. He has been recognized in the past by the
Oakland County Bar Association and was
awarded the prestigious Frances R. Avadenka
Memorial Award for his contributions to the
community of Oakland
County. He has also been
recognized for his Pro-
Bono legal services to the
underprivileged.
Steven is a graduate of
Lake Orion Schools,
Oakland University and
the Detroit College of Law.
He takes pride in his
community and enjoys
serving the youth of our society. He has joined
forces with the Lapeer County Prosecutor’s
Office and is a frequent guest of Prosecutor Byron
Konschuh on his weekly television program
dealing with legal issues that affect the youth of
our society.
Steven is currently serving as Trustee on the
Lake Orion Board of Education and is very active
in our local schools. In the past Steven has served
as Vice President and Trustee of the Oxford

President of the Orion/Oxford Boys and Girls
Club, and has served as legal counsel for
numerous local non-profit organizations such

Steven Drakos earns “Best of the Best”
Lions Club.
Mr. Drakos has been invited by the Dean of
Thomas M. Cooley Law School to teach on the
importance of ethics and professionalism in the
practice of law. He will start classes in January of
2012. He has been recognized for his leadership
in this area of the law and has been asked to
serve the law school in this regard.
As an attorney he takes pride in assisting his
clients to the best of his ability. Mr. Drakos stated,
“I take pride in associating my law office with the
best attorneys in Oakland and Lapeer Counties.
If I personally cannot help an individual I will
find the correct attorney who can.” Mr. Drakos
observed that people forget that “Attorney and
Counselor” means just that, an attorney is also
given the responsibility of being a “Counselor”.
In other words it is important to understand that
people often are traumatized, under stress or
have an alcohol or drug addiction issue that
needs to be addressed. “It is my job not only to
handle the legal matter but to find the right
medical professional or counselor who can assist
the client.”
His colleagues have given him a “BV
Distinguished” rating score afforded by
Martindale Hubbell who rates attorneys. Mr.
Drakos was given this rating for his legal ability
and ethical standards in the legal community.
The Law Offices of Steven A. Drakos has been
serving the communities of Oakland County and
Lapeer County for over twenty three (23) years.

Eye Health Professionals, located at 81
Indianwood Road in Lake Orion, is a
comprehensive eye care practice
providing eyeglasses and contact lenses,
treatment of eye diseases and eye surgery.
“This a fantastic community to live and
work in,” states Dr. Robert Deck.
Dr. Deck and Dr. Michael Greenley,
M.D. are
available to see
patients six days
per week and
also provide 24
hour emergency
m e d i c a l
s e r v i c e s .
According to
Deck, there have been numerous changes
in the eye care field since he began
practicing fifteen years ago. “The
changes in medications to treat eye
infections and allergies, and the new
glaucoma therapies have improved
dramatically. Surgeons like Dr. Greenley
have been improving refractive surgeries
to include custom LASIK with intra-lase,
epi-LASIK, and LASEK. The new
spectacle lens designs have made the
lenses more distortion free and now we
have customized progressive lenses for
bifocal wearers,” says Deck. “However,
the most exciting advancements in eye
care are new instrumentation that allows
practitioners to diagnose, treat and predict
outcomes more accurately now than in
the past.”
The office has over 750 unique frame
and sunglasses on display, and can special
order most others if they are not in stock.
The practice is kid friendly, seeing children
of all ages. “We provide a relaxed
atmosphere for children, since coming to
the eye doctor can be intimidating,” states
Deck. “Children coming in for the first time
can have a picture taken with some of our
equipment and e-mailed home to parents.
Eye Health Professionals offers 7:00AM
appointments and can accomodate special
requests. The office now offers delivery
services.

To all of our customers,
Our family would like to thank you all
for voting us Best of the Best in so many
categories. We are flattered that so many
people support us. We could never have
come so far without all of your support.
When John and I met years ago, he was
a cook and I was a waitress. We could
have never known t hen how t rul y
blessed we would be someday. We love
that you all appreciate the time and effort
our whole family puts into running our
restaurant.
John has taught our son, Ryan, how to
cook and our Troy is the fastest prep cook
around! Tyler helps me up front making
sure everyone leaves full and happy. We
have learned over the last 21 months how
to work well together, even on those crazy
Sundays!
We all are looking forward to you
stopping in soon. Come in and warm up
with a cup of John’s homemade soup.
Drop in and say “Hi” to Lisa and Kelly on
Mondays for a Dollar Coney. Mindi and
Dan are here every Tuesday serving Dollar
burgers all day! Apparently some of you
may also be craving our fish and chips!
Come in on Fridays for a fish sandwich
and a cup of chowder.
Again, thank you so much for your
support and friendships. All of us at Times
Square truly enjoy coming to work every
day and making your day a little better.
See you soon - John, Stephanie

The Lake Orion Review Best of the Best Wed., December 28, 2011 25
2011 has been a successful year
for many of the Powerhouse Orion
members by meeting and exceeding
their goals. Now the staff and owners
of Powerhouse Orion have something
to celebrate as well. The staff of
Powerhouse Orion is proud to be your
“Best of “ facility to get fit in 2011.
The owner Phill Stublensky
explained that with the success of his
members comes recognition like this.
“The experience of fun, excitement
and enthusiasm our members show
us every day in our all of our programs
is truly life changing for us and them.
I have put years of research and work into
perfecting our weight loss programs, sports
performance training and our Group Training
programs also known as Boot Camp. I am
honored to be recognized in the community
as the best place to go to get fit.”
To celebrate Phill brought his staff
together and did an extra staff boot camp.
“We actually have staff boot camps every
other Friday so that everyone in my team can
experience what we preach everyday and can
say, ‘I know how you feel’ when they are
talking with our members. I thought I would
have a special themed boot camp in the honor
of our award when Mr. Misener from Sherman
Publications delivered the good news to my
staff ” said Stublensky. He also commented
Powerhouse Orion the Best of Best 2011
“In this type of business if you don’t practice
what you preach you send mixed signals to
your members about the importance of
fitness. If the ownership and staff don’t
believe in what they do 100% then how can
you expect your members to give 100%?”
The team at Powerhouse Orion is proud of
their award for 2011 yet look forward to
making 2012 the best year ever for their
members!
Powerhouse Gym Orion’s staffed hours
are from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and
Sunday. They can be reached at (248) 693-
0300 or online at powerhouseorion.com. See
their success stories and fun videos on
Facebook and Youtube.
Since 1905, The Lake Orion Review has been located a 30 N. Broadway Street in downtown Lake Orion. Here
are the staff, from the left, editor Laura Colvin, office manager Jody Osborn and reporter Megan Collier.
Best Community Newspaper: The Lake Orion Review
Optimism for community
Maybe we -- as a community -- hit bot-
tom in 2010, and by 2011 folks realized
they could whine in vain, or they could pull
up their big-boy pants and start to make
things happen for themselves. Maybe.
Maybe not.
Quite possibly we are buying our own,
self-proclaimed mission, “to lead, inspire
and inform” and our own company goal,
“to be relevant.”
We don’t know why, or how, but the
feeling we feel as 2011 moves to 2012 is
one of growing optimism. We are not be-
ing delusional either, local businessmen and
women, as well as folks on the streets tell
us things are not as good as they once were,
but they aren’t as bad as they were, either.
For us at the newspaper 2011 was a good
year, so much so that we are looking for-
ward to 2012.
In 2012 we will continue to grow both
print and electronic versions of The Lake
Orion Review and improve local program-
ming for our on-line “tv” station
(www.LakeOr ionTV.com).
More than ever, it is time for us to keep
our white hat handy, to ride at the forefront
touting what our community has to offer.
We will do this editorially with news con-
tent, commentary and opinion pieces. We
will beat the drums and circle the wagons
with this message, “This is our community
and we (local business, residents, service
groups and even government units) need
to support one another.”
Of course, as a newspaper, we will cheer
the good as well as “out” the bad.
In 2012 we will continue to bring read-
ers a number of timely, full color special
sections, as well as occasional issues of
The Review itself.
For local businesspeople, we will con-
tinue to offer you the most effective and
trusted way to reach our community. Suc-
cess is not by accident. And, just as it is
with success, for marketing to work, it
must be planned and targeted.
To our business partners, ask your ad-
vertising representative to work harder for
you. Ask them to work out a plan and bud-
get for 2012. Also make sure they invite
you to our nationally recognized and
award-winning Coffee Clubs (what assis-
tant publisher Don Rush lovingly calls,
“Hippie Networking.”)
The Lake Orion is a paid-circulation,
weekly community newspaper. It’s fam-
ily-owned, employing up to 60 people (de-
pending on the season), who love to shop
locally. The Review is a mainstay in the
community, on top of local news since
December, 1881. It has been at its current
location, 30 N. Broadway Street in down-
town, since 1905.
The Review’s sister publications are The
Oxford Leader, Ad-Vertiser, Clarkston
News, Penny Stretcher and The Big Deal.
A viable business, Sherman Publications,
Inc. (publishers of the newspapers) and
staff continually look for new ways to
grow. In 1961, The Ad-Vertiser, a free, to-
tal market shopper, was started to comple-
ment the paid circulation newspaper and
empower local businesses by giving them
a reach, before unheard of.
In 2002, Sherman Publications made the
leap to cyberspace, putting news, advertis-
ing and want ads on-line at
www.LakeOr ionReview.com.
“While not everything we run in our print
editions is on-line, the website still has a lot
of local information,” publisher Jim
Sherman, Jr., said, “just not everything. Ev-
erything is reserved for subscribers.”

Why All the Household Dust?
I
’m Keith Meadows, owner and operator
of American Power Vac, Inc. For years,
I’ve been improv-
ing our
c ommuni t y’s
health one family
at a time. By now
we’ve all heard
the statistics:
50% of all illness
is a direct relation
to dirty indoor air
and our indoor
air is up to 90
times more pol-
luted than out-
door air. Yet, 90%
of the calls I re-
ceive everyday
are from des-
perate people complaining about dust. They
tell me they dust the T.V. on Friday, but by
Sunday they are pushing the dust out of
the way again so they can watch Desperate
Housewives, and none of them know ex-
actly where it’s coming from. Well, I’m here
to tell you that it’s not because you’re a
bad housekeeper, I tell people that by sim-
ply having your ducts
cleaned will drastically re-
duce household dust, and
the reason is, your cold air
returns.
Cold air returns suck in
dirty air, and overtime it
builds up until you have
the same type of debris
that you would find in your
vacuum bag.
Visit our websit e at
www.americanpowervac.com
for an actual photo of the
debr is that is pulled fr om
a typical home.
Cold air returns are also
the reason new
homeowners are experienc-
ing dust. While your dry-
wall was being sanded,
your cold air returns
sucked all of the dust
through the system and it
settled on the bottom of the
duct lines where a little at a
time gets blown back into
your home. To prove it,
take a walk down into your basement, look
up at the ceiling for thin sheets of tin nailed
between your floor joists. These are your
cold air return lines. Give them a good
pounding. You’ll see puffs of dust seeping
out of the edges. That my friends, is the
reason you have uncontrollable dust prob-
lems!
This debris cannot be removed without
a professional. Which brings me to my next
point: choosing an air duct cleaning com-
pany. Most companies use portable units,
which are like a shop vac that you would
vacuum your car
with, obviously
absolutely useless.
Then there are
companies who
claim they have a
t r uck- mount ed
system. In reality,
they have a low
powered portable
system attached
inside a van, again,
absolutely useless.
Visit our website
for photos of our
equipment vs. por-
t able or t r uck
mount ed equip-
ment at www.americanpowervac.com.
American Power Vac has the equipment
that is powerful enough to get the job done
right and that equipment is a Power Vac
truck. It is the most powerful equipment in
the industry. This is where the entire truck
is the vacuum and the truck motor powers
the equipment. You’ll know it’s a Power
Vac truck because it’s the
size of an ambulance and
when engaged twelve large
air bags will come out of the
roof. What makes the differ-
ence in equipment? Power !
To put things into perspec-
tive, your furnace moves
2,000 CFM’s (cubic feet of
air per minute), basically
what you feel coming out of
your register. Truck-
mounted equipment only
moves 4,000 CFM’s. Ameri-
can Power Vac moves over
16,000 cubic feet of air per
minute, more than quadruple
the power of any truck-
mounted equipment. Be-
war e of companies using
cheap equipment and adver-
tising cheap prices… most
are unlicensed or advertise
that they are licensed and
are not!
Avoid scams by asking
for and confirming all state
mechanical license numbers
at mich.gov/bcclicense.
Type in business name &
click on “Mechanical License”. American
Power Vac is family owned and we’re here
to help by offering a
“One of the best
companies I have ever had

I was very satisfied with
their workmanship and
clean up. I would hire your
company again in a
heartbeat, and would
gladly spread the word to
family, friends and
neighbors. Great company
you have going.”
