The Observer is the weekly newspaper that keeps readers in the know in their communities.

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. To find out where you can pick up your favorite Observer, call 941-366-3468, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
