We are thrilled to wrap up the summer with this aquatic-themed issue of San Angelo Lifestyles. From summer camp at Lake Nasworthy to Central High’s accomplished head coach, we have an interesting and diverse collection of features for you this edition.
We hope you have taken time out of your busy schedules to be still and enjoy time with family and friends before the schedules and routine of fall are back in play. Some of the best memories from my childhood were made during those long summer road trips, where the destination was just a part of the fun. The real adventure was getting there in one piece, Clark-Griswold-style. Thanks for reading!
We hope you enjoy this issue’s special feature encompassing Women You Should Know. This series highlights a few of the many accomplished ladies involved in local industry. Whether they are entrepreneurs, directors, or support staff, they are a vital part of our local economy’s success. We hope you enjoy looking at these professionals’ lives in and out of work, as much as we enjoyed putting this section together for you, our readers.

This issue is full of great people in our community using their gifts for good in a variety of ways. We are each given different talents, but what good are they if we keep them to ourselves?
Let your light shine by using those talents as you are called to do! What are your gifts? How can you put them to use today? A small act can make a big difference in someone’s life.
I love this time of year. Although each new day really is a fresh start, most of us are not as intentional with that clean slate as we are in the New Year. Instead of resolving to eat healthy & exercise (which I should add to my list too) I want to resolve to be present with my family – including my extended family.
Last year I copied and scanned every picture I could find from my 92 year old Grandmother and asked her to label the names of the faces as I pasted them to blank pages…these faces from the past brought our family to where we are today.
It is a reminder that the decisions Matt & I make today have a ripple effect for our family tomorrow. In 2018 praying and resolving to make positive ripples!
On behalf of San Angelo Lifestyles & our advertisers (see a full list in the back of this publication) we thank you for shopping local, not only during this past Christmas season, but year round.
Every season has its benefits and joys, but summer alone allows, even demands, lazy days and late nights. While in the midst of my summer bliss, I was more than a little unnerved to see school supplies being put out before the 4th of July. But school is back in session, which forces us into the routines fall imposes and, frankly, my family was in need of their schedule.
In this diverse issue of San Angelo Lifestyles, read about your neighbors making their mark on this great city in everything from art (“A ‘Burning’ Passion”) to preserving history (Articles: “The Greatest Generation” and “If These Tunnels Could Talk”).
There are so many things going on around town and many milestones are being celebrated this year. San Angelo Lifestyles also has a fresh new look and a new section, Hometown Artist, for you to enjoy. This edition of meet the artist features Steve Boster. He is one of many in the Concho Valley who contribute to the creative funky scene that is San Angelo. Speaking of talented artists, discover how Reid Scott (cover painting) has used his talents to give back to the community.
As always we want to feature your events and uplifting stories about the great things and people around town. Check out our Hometown Contributors page – showcasing profiles of locals who help make SAL possible. We hope you like our new look as we are always trying to stay creative and fresh – loyal to all things good in and around San Angelo.

Some people are fanatics about New Year’s resolutions….I am not. But I do always try to make ‘Back to School’ resolutions which include getting into a healthy routine…. regular bed times, dinner together as a family at the table, and trying to actually cook that dinner instead of picking it up.
Heck, I may even try working out this fall (that should last until at least Thanksgiving). But one thing required to get kids back into school is shot records. With this in mind a good resolution for us all would be not to neglect our preventative health care.
This issue is the first ever to feature Super Docs; an exclusive section showcasing the many qualified physicians in our town. Their specialties vary, but their attention to caring for you – the patient, does not.
So don’t put off what ails you any longer and scroll through this list to find a doctor near you. If you are new to town use this as a guide to help acclimate yourself to San Angelo and keep your care local. As always, we thank you for reading and for the creative culture that is San Angelo!
One of my new all-time favorite articles is about Lee Elder, a man I do not know personally, but am striving to be more like. You can tell a lot about a person by their actions; as they say actions speak louder than words. This Kiwanis member has over 60 years of Perfect Attendance. I would love to see our nation come back to the mentality of following through on our commitments. We are only responsible for ourselves however, so making that statement true starts at home…with ourselves and teaching our children right from wrong and the importance in investing their time in things that matter. I know Lee Elder’s family is proud of the legacy he has created for them through service to this community. Check out this article and remember, one person can make a difference – that one person can be you! God has a special plan for each of us! No one is insignificant. No one is put here by accident.
I would challenge you to take your commitments seriously and show up for what matters like Lee. I plan to challenge myself to do the same in 2016 and the years to come. If you like what you see in San Angelo Lifestyles, let our advertisers know by telling them “THANK YOU” for their participation in SAL (keeping each edition FREE for you).

Hello San Angelo! Summer is starting to wind down and for the locals it was a busy one. Former First Lady Laura Bush graced us with her presence - which was a treat for all. San Angelo Lifestyles is no stranger to good news and it seems like the local economy is headed in the right direction. This issue is full of stories of local heroes and non-profit organizations that are on a mission to help others with no recognition in mind.
San Angelo is a patriotic community that does not overlook the price America’s military and their families have paid for our freedom. Check out a few of those families and their stories in this edition. It is our hope that you will not only read these articles but take time to reflect on the sacrifices these individuals make in an effort to better our lives. Please take the time to thank these service men and women, along with their families, the next time you pass them on the street or maybe when you are enjoying a chicken fry for lunch at The Mesquite Bean!
Take it from someone who travels all over the state, learning about local heroes and real “hometown living,” when I say that San Angelo truly has something special! From friendly hardworking West Texans to a culturally diverse downtown like no other, this town is one of my favorite places to visit. So kick back and enjoy this issue with a little hometown pride. You have earned it!
Blessings to you and your family,
San Angelo is abuzz with the stock show and rodeo season upon us! What a fun time of year! But this is hardly San Angelo’s only busy season as you will see in this edition of San Angelo Lifestyles.
Speaking of backyards, check out the Santa Rita home of Randy & Patty Gardner (on the cover) – complete with a picturesque gazebo perfect for entertaining! Take some ideas to use in your own home, I know I did! On a personal note, we would like to thank our fantastic key writers, Becca Nelson Sankey & Sabrina Tatsch, who have worked with us for many moons now. They always add a personal touch to their professional work – as well as keep a pulse on the busyness that is San Angelo! And thank you to Gus Clemens who uses his vast experience to add depth to the stories he writes in this publication. And photographer, Don Treadwell, a hard worker who we depend on! We recognize you for all you do!
As always we want to thank our advertisers for their involvement – help us to thank them by SHOPPING LO CAL! Their involvement allows this publication to come free of charge to you! Check them out in the Index of Advertisers (last page of the magazine) and go by to get your copy today.
