Cassie Horner and Tim Sink
top to bottom: Izzy, Steamer, and Maxine
This quarterly publication is the result of an idea so obvious it was brilliant. We have wanted to work together for a long time, and while we were both happy and successful in our careers, we felt there was something else we could strive to achieve. We saw the popularity in other areas of full color, high-quality magazines of local content. We believed there was a place in Rutland County for positive stories of the people and events that make it a special place. We want our work to entertain and inform. And we want to serve a purpose that contributes to the community.
We both know Rutland very well. Tim had a 14-year career selling radio advertising for Catamount Radio. Cassie’s work has appeared in Rutland area publications. We pondered the idea of a magazine for quite a while, and thanks are in order to all of the people who helped us along the way.
Dog lovers will appreciate the fact that Rutland Magazine is dedicated in part to Schooner and Molly, the two original Mad Dogs. (They inspired the name of our company, Mad Dog Ink, LLC.)
We are especially thankful to Cassie’s mom, Doodie Horner, who always encouraged her to read lots of good books, write up a storm, and appreciate the wonders of Vermont.
