DO YOU GET IT?
The Observer is the weekly newspaper that keeps readers in the know in their communities. Every issue is packed with news, photos and information about community events and community newsmakers — from city & county government to the local economy, from the black tie social scene to backyard birthdays. If it’s news in the community, it’s in The Observer. Today, three Observers serve Sarasota and Manatee counties — Longboat, East County and Sarasota.
The Observer is delivered free to select homes and condominiums and is available at multiple prime commercial locations throughout each publication area.
