Commentary by Randy Sorrell
Congratulations and welcome to the inaugural addition of Current in Geist. Get ready for one of the nations leading and most successful community newspapers. Of course, I am biased, having been part of the launch of their first of now six community newspapers as a writer and then advertiser, eight growing years ago.
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM CURRENT: Thoughtful community involvement, relevant community content, delivered weekly to your mailbox, a staff and leadership that cares / listens / responds to your feedback and a very fun read. Still a print newspaper junkie, I dig the morning WSJ and even the Star. But the most anticipated ink of the week arrives Tuesdays from Current.
INCREDIBLE OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES: So who the heck am I and what is this bi-monthly article about? I’ve been called a landscaper (not), a community activist / leader and a hurried husband of 32 years with three amazing daughters. But for your purposes, I’m the incredibly fortunate founder of SURROUNDINGS by NatureWorks, a serial entrepreneur with over 21 years in the “green industry”.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT IN THESE ARTICLES: frequent updates on gutsy outdoor living trends, guidance on forward thinking material selection, opinions on outdoor furniture and stimulating discussions and pictures on incredible outdoor living spaces. Spaces that we have designed and built!
Outdoor living spaces often means something different to each person. For some, a simple concrete patio with subtle landscaping is appropriate. Others feel compelled to appreciate a deck or elegant stone patio. Most, however, dream of something more grand…an outdoor living space spiked with amenities like an edgy cedar pergola offering dappled shade or a formal lanais, colorful landscapes hugging a fire feature that all the family and neighbors can enjoy.
Get ready. You are going to love it!!
