Gordon Whitman and his wife, Sylvia brought the Stow Independent to Rio. Gordon, though not a Stow resident, is Vice President of Linear Retail, owners of the Stow Shopping Plaza. As Gordon said of his trip to Rio, “We just wanted you all to know that The Stow Independent is never far from our hearts.” Seems like a distant memory now, but Gregory and Kevin Rollins enjoyed several long, hot days at Davis Farmland in the summer of 2012. Hours were spent with the baby goats, chickens, and Buffalo Bill the water buffalo, pictured here. Everyone is looking forward to renewing friendships in the Spring.
