Something New

Beachcomber Editor Chris Manson (not pictured) at this year’s Destin Seafood Festival, held Sept. 30-Oct. 2 on the Destin Harbor. Congratulations to everyone involved on a fun, well-attended event. Next year, though, someone needs to invite a drinking helmet vendor.

Beginning with this issue—after 15 years of publication—The Beachcomber is under new ownership.


Our goals for The Beachcomber are similar to our hopes for our area. We want to serve an important role for those who call these shores home.


We want to be part of the effort to make this a world class place to live. Building a great community will provide benefits not just for those of us who live and work here, but for our visitors also.


If we can do that, good things will follow.


The content of the paper will change somewhat over the next three months. There will be more commentary from local people on local issues. There will be more information that will enhance our visitors’ enjoyment of the Panhandle. There will be in-depth interviews with the people who make this place special.


We want to be involved in elevating the quality of life for everyone associated with this coast. That might seem to be a lofty goal for a small, bi-weekly newspaper.


We’re up to the challenge.
