    HAPPY AUGUST, ESTERO!!

    As we head into the Dog Days of summer, I hope you enjoyed the many summertime suggestions we made in our July issue. Most are still available this month as we begin to turn our attention to the upcoming new school year.

    In this back-to-school issue we are showcasing the numerous positive changes in the areas schools, from Pinewoods and Three Oaks Elementary to Three Oaks Middle School, Estero High School and Florida Gulf Coast University. The principals of the four Lee County schools update us on whats new for their facilities, faculty and curriculum.

    We also provide you an interesting insight into Estero High Schools Top Athletes of 2013. We are proud of the recognition these ne athletes bring to our community. In addition to their athletic successes, they are superb examples of the quality of young men and women we have living here in Estero.

    For this months cover story our thanks goes to President Wilson Bradshaw for updating us on the FGCU as it enters its seventeenth year. I am sure that you will learn some new and interesting facts about our hometown university!

    Some of the biggest FGCU news is the new mens basketball head coach Joe Dooley. Enjoy the coachs insights as he prepares his team for the upcoming season.

    And what would back to school be without the return of college football? Learn about how, when and where local fans of college football gather to cheer their teams to victory, along with links to alumni associations and fans

    clubs. We hope we have included your favorite team. We have provided a convenient listing of the televised season openers. May the best teams win!

    One location that accommodates sports fans is Millers Ale House at Gulf Coast Town Center with its 57 high-def TV screens. We offer you examples of their most popular foods.

    All of this and some best bets to round out your enjoyment of the Estero Lifestyle!

    Thanks also to all of our tremendous advertising partners! Id like to recognize our most recent, joining us this summer: Massage Envy, Key Real Estate, Concept 10 10 Fitness, Lennar, and Estero Family Chiropractic. Please show them and all of our

    partners your appreciation for making Estero Lifestyle Magazine available to you.

    Finally, thanks to our readers for your support and the many
