Finally, after a long, hard winter, spring is here and with it comes the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the season -- and we're not talking about shoveling snow.

Feeling adventurous? This edition features a story on Riverside Canoe Outfitters in Daleville and its owner Jerry Shelton, and the president of his company, Pepper, the dog.

Getting the itch to get your hands dirty and to finally see something green? Read about master gardener RaeLou Rumple, whose Fairmount greenhouse is full of plants, seedlings and miniature gardens complete with fairies.

Madison also looks at the upcoming Anderson Brewfest which will feature craft beers, food, music and art. According to the organizers they are looking to provide a "cultural experience" with this first time fest.
