OMG — IT’S BEEN 11 YEARS!
The Lighthouse Point Magazine proudly reaches its eleventh year of publication with this July, 2013 issue. In a great effort to reach the hearts and minds of this city’s people, we continue to publish a magazine filled with great articles and memorable photos that we believe everyone will want to keep as a chronological record of important events that have taken place in this wonderful community.
We are truly indebted to those who have been so kind to take the time and effort to contribute articles and photos, for they, and our own amazing staff, are an integral part of the tapestry that makes our publication so special. If I sound like I’m boasting, I guess you’re right!
A SHORT TRIP TO NORTH CAROLINA
My former wife, Jean, and two of my five children, Eve and John, moved up to North Carolina recently to get away from the heat and dizzy lifestyle of Broward County. Last week, my son, Paul, and I flew up on Southwest Airline for 5 days to see what all the raving was about.
First of all, I love the heat of South Florida. I’ve loved it for 36 years. But you can’t help being impressed with the sleepy rolling hills, lined with tall pines around the city of Apex, about a half hour from Raleigh Airport. Many shopping areas dot the landscape with a decent selection of fine restaurants, but time spent driving was a bit excessive. Because of the slower pace lifestyle, I found the people a bit friendlier and more courteous. This certainly added to the attractiveness.
Not long ago, my daughter, Noelle, became married in a beautiful ceremony on the picturesque Outer Banks of North Carolina. Happily, she drove down from New Jersey to join us in a surprise appearance. The fifth progeny, Gavin, was unable to make it down from Jersey.
IN PERSUIT OF PERFECTION
In our SuperKid of the Month article on page 16 of the June issue, we made a serious typo by indicating the previous recipient of the award, Ryan Kolb, instead of Tyler Painter, as the current and true SuperKid of the Month. We want to apologize to Tyler for our mistake and wish her well in all the fine things she accomplishes!
