Welcome to the New Season

During this season of revival and renewal, we are pleased to announce the beginning of Phase II of the Rockport Observer community-media initiative: a printed newspaper along with a community Web site, Facebook and YouTube sites serving the Fairview Park, Rocky River, and West Park area, under the stewardship of LuAnn Leonard, the new publisher of The Rockport Observer.

LuAnn brings energy, enthusiasm, and a personal aesthetic to the Rockport Observer project. She also brings a strong sense of mission and purpose to making the Rockport Observer something to look forward to: a small package of enjoyment and enrichment, neighbors speaking with neighbors, schools and businesses. It’s a community forum in which issues and ideas can be discussed, a way to create conversation and build bridges throughout the Rockport community.

I will continue in the role of guiding the editorial quarter and online facets of the publication and Web sites.

With the support of the community, the first Rockport Observer 2013 newspaper will become a reality in late spring.  LuAnn will be contacting many of you in the near future or feel free to reach out to her at your convenience. 

As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions. Thank you for your support thus far and for contributing to the success of this project.

Just to remind you, articles can be submitted at any time (why not today?) straight into the Member Center by going to www.therockportobserver.com, clicking on the Member Center, and signing in.

Thank you again.
