April 09

    Welcome to the April issue of Discover Southside.

   We have packed a lot into this issue and we hope you find it to be a good one.

   Spring is a time of new things. New life, new growth and new ideas.

   So with this in mind, we are putting some fresh ideas to work for you in this issue.

   We have added a new section this month. In the Departments section of the contents, you will find some Press Releases. These Press Releases are sent in by various organizations, businesses or individuals. As we continue to receive these news items, we will maintain this section. We hope you find these interesting and informative.

   Something else is new this month. We are showcasing some Southside businesses. We felt these businesses were interesting and provided value to the community as well as being something readers would like to know about. We will try to bring you these business stories on a semi-regular basis. If you know of a business, which has an interesting story, and you would like to see it highlighted in a future issue of Discover Southside, please let us know about it.

   We have also made a change to the navigation for the past issues. We intend to retain all past issues online in a way that makes them easy to find. The list of links was getting long, so we have changed this to a Pull-down style menu. We hope you find this works well for you.

   We are working on some other new features too, and plan to have some of them ready for next month.

   Your feedback is important, we listen to your suggestions and try to improve Discover Southside each month.

   As always, we hope you will support our advertisers. Without them Discover Southside would not be possible.

   Thanks for reading and have a great month.
