West Oakland Directory
www.spinalcolumnonline.com
The 2009 edition of the West Oakland Directory marks the 27th year
of publication of this essential community guide for the lakes area.
This year also holds a special significance for our publishing group in
that 2009 also marks the 50th year of publication for our newspaper,
the Spinal Column Newsweekly, long considered the local news
leader in this part of Oakland County. Our newspaper has a strong
tradition of covering the key issues of concern for residents of the
lakes area and it served as the launching pad for not only the West
Oakland Directory but a number of other publications and on-line
ventures in recent years.
The West Oakland Directory and the Spinal Column Newsweekly are
part of the SCN Communications Group where we also produce
Oakland Lakefront magazine, reaching 19,000 lakefront homes
county-wide; Oakland Homes real estate magazine; Preferred
Oakland Homes, a monthly full-color real estate magazine; and the
MonthlyAdvertiser, a direct-mail monthly shopping guide reaching
nearly 74,000 homes in the west Oakland area. Our group, still
independently owned, also has created a number of websites, some
tied to our existing publications and others as stand alone on-line
entities.
For this year’s edition of the West Oakland Directory, we are once
again distributing 50,000 copies of the West Oakland Directory by
inserting the annual publication into the home-delivered copies of the
Spinal Column Newsweekly. The West Oakland Directory is the
largest guide to life in the western portion of Oakland County, and it
reaches more local residents than any other similar publication.
We have followed our past approach of providing the most complete
guide to the local communities, including the many service groups
which help make up the fabric of life in the lakes area. We also
provide for local residents and newcomers a guide to local
government, local schools and the county and state government.
The community group information is also placed on-line at the
newspaper’s website: www.spinalcolumonline.co, and the entire
contents of the publication can be viewed in a flip-page format on the
newspaper’s site.
Lastly, we thank the businesses you see represented in this edition for
their support in helping bring this annual community guide into your
home.
