Economic development and how do we make our community a better place... that's the Acheson Challenge, issued by local philanthropist Jim Acheson as he lays down the gauntlet for the men of St. Clair County.  Randy Maiers at the Community Foundation of St. Clair County says the lead-up to next month's Men's Night fundraiser for the Foundation will see two teams, North vs. South, getting their message out about making a better place and serves as a kickoff for the "Community Capital Club". Maiers says Community Capital are elements that help grow our collective prosperity, and ones that the entire community receives benefits from, such as waterfront assets, parks, arts organizations, maritime culture, and the like.  Anyone interested in participating in the $50-thousand dollar Acheson Challenge or in supporting either the North or South Teams can go online to the Community Foundation's website at
