Art with Heart
Rick Dziak was born and raised in Marblehead, Ohio. Ask him about his first Lakeside experience, and he simply replies that Lakeside was "always there" - he worked at the drug store with his mother before it became The Shade Tree, he attended school on Walnut Avenue for the first four years of elementary school and moved to the school now on Route 163, and he even sold his first painting at the Lakeside Art Show in 1961.

Dziak has loved painting since he was in elementary school, where Eleanor Durr was his art teacher. Unfortunately, art was only a part of the curriculum up to the sixth grade. Determined to follow his passion, he asked for a set of oil paints for Christmas when he was 14, and Santa obliged.

Vote Lakeside Chautauqua as the 'Best Non-Profit' and Hoover Auditorium as the 'Best Live Music Venue' in The Beacon's 'Best of the Best' competition. You can also vote for your favorite pizza, specialty retail shop, lodging, real estate agent, hair salon, festival, beach, campground, park, and more.
Submissions must be in the Lake Erie Shores & Islands region. Voting is available until Thursday, Sept. 1.

Health and wellness are integral to Lakeside's mission of nurturing mind, body and spirit. A long, healthy life is no accident. It begins with good genes, but also depends on good habits. If you adopt the right lifestyle, experts say, chances are you may live up to a decade longer.

So what's the formula for success? Tony and his brother, a National Geographic explorer, Dan Buettner have led teams of researchers across the globe to uncover the secrets of Blue Zones - geographic regions where high percentages of centenarians are enjoying remarkably long, full lives.
Lakeside Keelboat Racing Association 
Have you ever wanted to learn more about racing or cruise a sailboat larger than a Sunfish or Laser? We are pleased to announce a new interest group - the Lakeside Keelboat Racing Association (LKRA), a loosely assembled and highly inclusive group of individuals who are passionate about racing and cruising sailboats with keels - sailboats at least 18 feet in length.  

Starting next year, LKRA will schedule races, including the famed August Cup, now more than 40 years running, and other events designed to help anyone become a better sailor, have some competitive fun and continue to build a keelboat sailing community here in Lakeside.  

A Board has been appointed with Brian Brucken as race officer with assistance from Celeste Williams and Mike Shofner. Beyond the racing schedule, plans for next year will include David Park organizing group cruises and Ron Jacobs and Jim Meyer developing training sessions on sailing techniques and boating safety. Williams will be offering programs specifically for women over the age of 50.

You don't need to be a boat owner to be involved. LKRA welcomes anyone interested in sailing. For more information and to be added to the email list, contact Brian Brucken at or Ron Jacobs at
