New Owners of the Beacon Jeff and Bill Cashman

Due to the ever-increasing demands on their time made by the Stoney Acre restaurant, Liam and Marilyn Racine have sold the Beaver Beacon to long-time Island residents Jeff and Bill Cashman. Jeff is well-known for his graphic design, and Bill's articles have been appearing in the Island newspapers and newsletters for some time.

Asked about their mission and policy, they indicated it would be formed by their experience over the next few months. They want to continue the improvements begun by the previous owner, and include extended coverage of features and several new columns. They are very receptive to input, suggestions, and contributed articles.

“We really enjoyed putting together Discovering Beaver Island two years ago and we have appreciated all the support we have received from the community,” says Jeff. “The Beacon seems like a great next step for us. It will allow us to spend time enjoying the Island and learning about new projects which will shape it’s future. We look forward to hearing from the community, taking pictures, and working with others to create a lively and interesting magazine which connects Islanders both on and off the Island with news and events and also shows the best of what Beaver Island has to offer. We are excited to see where we can take the Beacon, and look forward to input from our readers, contributors, and Islanders alike.”
