Publisher’s Message

Bee Boppin’ Around…

Happy New Year readers! I can’t imagine a better time than right now to count our blessings and be grateful. We are experiencing a very wet winter which we hope will end the drought, low gas prices that free up money to spend on making our lives more comfortable and the lowest mortgage interest rates in years.

Time for those New Years resolutions; fulfilling a goal, or checking something off your bucket list, getting that lab work to read in the normal range, or maybe just spending more free time with someone you have missed this past year. It’s the time for fresh starts, new beginnings, which is why we feature Health and Wellness in our very first issue of each year. This year we are proud to offer you a pullout guide to reference all year long; keeping you living healthier, more productive lives.

We are halfway through our fifteenth year at the magazine and my fifth year as publisher. We couldn’t be more proud of the direction the magazine is going and the quality of the writers who share their expertise each month and keep our editorial interesting. We work hard to bring you useful, accurate information and although we’ve stumbled a few times we always recover and do better next time; looking a little deeper, searching a bit longer to find the correct information for you, our reader.

Of course we couldn’t do it without all the faithful followers that pick up the magazine each month and call on the very advertisers that support getting Out & About Magazine on the streets and in your hot little hands. Please support the people on these pages who are local business owners, living in our community; contributing to our economy and often times making our lives just a little bit better. Have a wonderful, healthy, and prosperous New Year!

With gratitude and love,
