It’s a question that shop owners in the city hear on a daily basis. Now they can give a simple answer: “Check out!”

Galena Guide was founded by three locals: Craig Raymon, Angela DeVere, and Christopher Wydra.

DeVere works as the content writer and editor, specializing in media marketing and promotion in order to “establish tangible ways to focus on what brings people closer together in her community and abroad.”

Raymon works on the tech side of things and he hopes to “share Galena’s wealth of talent, entertainment, and experiences for all to enjoy.”

Wydra is the event producer.

“When it comes to making human connections, I’m open seven days a week,” Wydra said.

If you have an event you want included on the website, events can be submitted on the website for free.

New Year, New Look for the 2018 Chevy Traverse!

2018 Traverse.jpg

When you look at the long list of available features on the new 2018 Chevy Traverse, it leaves you wondering why  you wouldn’t get one!

The vehicle, now available in new RS and High Country trims, offers plenty of room for the whole family, a quiet and comfortable ride, and great safety, tech, and convenience features!

Some impressive new features include:
Traction  Mode Select: Adjust performance based on road and surface conditions with the simple turn of a dial — whether you have the available all-wheel drive or the standard front-wheel drive.
Adaptive Cruise 2018-traverse-interiorControl: This automatically maintains a preset distance from the
vehicle in front of you, even during stop and go traffic.
Intellibeam Headlights: These automatically switch to high beams when driving conditions are too dark, then switch back to low beams when an oncoming vehicle is detected.
Rear Seat Reminder: When a second-row door is open and closed during or just before a trip, this reminds you to check the back seats with five chimes and a message in the driver information center.
D-optic Headlamps: Available on Premier and High Country trims, these offer a crisp and smooth beam that is more like daylight and easier on your eyes. The Traverse is the first vehicle in the industry to offer these.

The vehicle offers a hands-free programmable liftgate to make preparing for a 2018-chevrolet-traverse-crossover-suv-mo-performance-1480x551-04trip simple. It also offers up to 14 available advanced safety technologies, including forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, low speed automatic braking, lane keep assist, full speed forward auto braking, and Surround Vision.

Want one? They will be available at Runde Chevrolet in East Dubuque, IL, and Runde Chevrolet Buick GMC in Platteville, WI, later this year!
