    Thanks, Estero, for welcoming Estero Lifestyle Magazine into your homes and making us part of your lives. I can still remember the initial comments from our readers as we launched in September 2010. The overwhelming response was Congratulations, Estero Lifestyle Magazine, for nally giving Estero something to call its own. At last someone recognizes that Estero can stand on its own merits and no longer needs to be lumped into Bonita Springs or South Ft. Myers as so many other publications continue to do. And we applaud your advertisers for recognizing that as well!!

    Although at times we reach out beyond our community to bring you dining, businesses and people making a difference that we hope you will appreciate, our mission remains today, as it was three years ago, to bring you the people, places and events that contribute to making the Estero lifestyle all it can be. And look at many changes to our community in just three short years!!

    We have uncovered so many interesting people in and around our community. We have delighted in bringing you the areas nest dining as well as community and philanthropic activities that make the Estero lifestyle so meaningful. We have been the proud voice promoting all that is good in Estero. We have brought to life the excitement on ice of the Florida Everblades, the non-stop successes of Florida Gulf Coast University athletics (Go Dunk City!!), the dozens of programs

    and activities at our area shopping meccas, Germain Arena and our own Estero Community Park as well as the many, many people who are making a difference in our community. We have strived to offer you the best of the best. We hope you have enjoyed the ride and will continue to do so. We remain focused on our mission.

    Much of this months issue is dedicated to food. Our cover story is dedicated to the sweet tooth in almost all of us!! From cupcakes to donuts and pastries. And from macaroons to chocolates and truf es you will learn a satisfying solution for sweets.

    This area also offers a multitude of avors from around the world. Enjoy just a few selections that we have uncovered.

    And, we have a new neighbor moving in this month at Miromar Outlets. Fords Garage is bringing its highly detailed, themed restaurant to Estero. Burgers will never be the same!!

    As we wind down with the last

    of cial holiday of the summer (and the heat too!) and head into the busy fall and winter seasons, I would like to thank all of our wonderful advertising partners over these past three years. You have enabled us to have a tremendous impact on our community. And to our faithful readers, I want to thank you for the amazing support. I appreciate your kind words and compliments as well as your encouragement and many suggestions. After all, Estero Lifestyle is for all of you!!

    As always, you can reach me at gisrael@lmg .com

    Until next month, remember toEnjoy the Lifestyle

    Pinewoods will celebrate its 20th

    birthday this year. Imagine the thousands of children who have walked through those doors.

    The entire county will be using new texts in both reading and math. Teachers will be engaged in training at the beginning of August on the implementation of Reading Street and Go Math.

    Pinewoods teachers reported back to work early to attend Kagan Cooperative Learning training. This training is about engaging students in their learning and working cooperatively with one another. Its a research-based program proven to increase academic achievement.
