Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

Don't tell the Greencorn's that you have nothing to do! The two have made a life out of bringing big talent and entertainment to our small Nova Scotia communities. From StanFest to the ECMA's and now as important players in the deCoste Centre and the Pictou County Wellness Centre, Troy and Jennie took centre stage in the Fall 2016 issue of At Home on the North Shore. It was great timing for the profile as it related well to new entertainment feature pages in the magazine. The At Home with profiles are the first pages that our readers go to. We have an evolving list of local mover's and shakers and it is important to know the pulse of the community share their story when the time is right.

Resources of the newsroom (money and time) available to complete the story:

At Home has a very limited editorial budget. This is a challenge for a new publication with a very enthusiastic readership with high expectations. We work with 900$ per issue for editorial and $1000 for photography and design. The story had its challenges coming together, including an emergency surgery for Troy the day the photos were scheduled..but you know what they say..the show must go on!
