47 Lake Erie Living

This one dropped through the mail slot; I didn't even have to look for it. The sub-title is, "good life on a great lake." The contents of the first issue include an article about building a dream home inspired by something seen on HGTV (one of my favorite channels), floating homes on Lake Erie, the Penfield House in Willoughby Hills, "Wright near the Lake," a Frank Lloyd Wright house we visited two years ago, the Schedel Arboretum and Gardens near Toledo, a guide to Lake Erie gulls (will make a good reference for our paintings), an article about Lakeside where we have our summer home, a story about Tibbels Charter fishing service out of Marblehead, Port Clinton's Walleye festival, and an article on boat ownership, including selecting the best one for you. It's really spectacular for an enjoyable first issue.

Editor Sharon Doddroe in her letter to the readers says this magazine only took four months from concept to life and that the people working on it have a history there. "We plan to highlight all the people, places and events that make Lake Erie the unique region that it is. We want to develop a community of people who love the lake and to share their information."

The other night in Liberty Bookstore I think I counted about 100 regional, state and city magazines, so this is a very active niche in marketing and publishing. I hope this magazine prospers and does all of us Lake Erie folks proud.

I recently listed my sailing teaching/ charter business (Key Sailingcharters, with you. There is no listing for sailing or boating. There is a lot of sailing and boating on Lake Erie.
