Two years ago, Milt Thomas and I began publishing InsideVero, a community news magazine dedicated to offering balanced reporting on issues of importance to the residents of Vero Beach and southern Indian River County. Beginning in February, we will expand our coverage to include news and features of importance and interest throughout Indian River County. At the same time, we will increase our circulation from 15,000 to 33,000. To reflect our expanded mission, we have changed the name of our news magazine to Inside Indian River.
Many important issues, including growth management, education, economic development, tourist development, intergovernmental relations, water supply, water quality and restoring the health Indian River Lagoon transcend the city limits of Vero Beach.
It is also true the diverse neighborhoods and municipalities within Indian River County share common interests and, ultimately, will share in a common destiny. Working well together requires effective communication. Inside Indian River’s mission will be to offer a comprehensive, thought-provoking and colorful report on life in Indian River County.
As a news magazine, the cornerstone of Inside Indian River will be in-depth, unbiased reporting on the issues affecting the quality of life for all residents of Indian River County, present and future. A Perspective section, featuring guest commentary, will serve as a forum for thoughtful, reasoned discourse and debate. Inside Indian River will also cover the local arts and entertainment scene.
Every day, Indian River County residents young and old are making a difference for good. Inside Indian River will tell their stories. In addition to a regular “helping hands” feature, Inside Indian River’s People section will celebrate some of Indian River County’s more interesting, influential and colorful citizens. Other regular features will include, Business, Active Life, Home Life and more.
As we expand our mission, I would welcome hearing your suggestions on what you would like to see in a community magazine serving all of Indian River County.
