Publishers Note Jan 2015

I love the month of January… notably, because it’s the month in which I was born!  I’ve never been much for making New Year’s resolutions; however, I do feel a sense of renewal as I kick off the New Year!

This year I am inspired to embrace change as never before.  I continue to remind myself of the personal growth I experience at every twist and turn of my life.  I’m thrilled that this year I have my new husband (first), Brian by my side—as we decide, among other real-life topics, where we will reside.  Change…scary, and exciting! 

I am proud to say that our paper continues to grow, attracting new advertisers and writers.  Sadly, I must also announce that one of my favorite contributors, Alyssa Wiegand—who has been providing our Recipes since November 2013—will be retiring her feature. Alyssa and her “Blog Partner” have signed a cookbook deal.  We wish them much success as they further their careers! I would like to extend an invitation for a new writer to continue this popular feature. Interested “Foodies” please contact me, via phone or email.

We are delighted to welcome a new contributor to The Rockport Observer—Dr. Lisa Stines Doane, is a Clinical Psychologist with a Practice in Rocky River. Her column will feature the Doctor’s counsel on issues of the Human Condition and everyday life. You may direct your questionsto Dr. Doane, at her email address:

My wish for you Dear Reader is that the changes you will encounter in this New Year bring health, happiness, prosperity, love and laughter.

Thank you for picking this up, taking a look, and giving it a go. We hope you find something you enjoy and pass it along to a friend.
