Front Porch: Spring 2014

"I've been reading the Community Observer for over five years and I have never been able to find the Fake Ad," wrote Dexter's Megan Loll, "but I think I finally found it in the Winter 2013 edition: Bell, Walson and Malone, LLC, on page 22." Not only was Loll right--she also was one of the few Fake Adders to catch the reference to John Walson, who's credited, at least by some, with inventing cable television.

The ad offered people the chance to sell the "telecom munity" rights to their land, which struck Saline's Lois Corrigan as odd. "With all the new natural gas and oil wells around the county," she wrote, "mineral rights are a hot commodity. I did not realize that telecom leases would soon follow."

We received sixty-seven correct entries, and Heather Green of Chelsea won our random drawing. She's taking her gift certificate to Arbor Farms Market.
