Changes Come to Main Line Todayt


Change. So often, it’s unsettling, with apprehension and fear regularly accompanying it in the dance of life.

When seen from a different angle, however, change can also be powerful and exciting. Such is the case this time.

For 15 years, Main Line Today was produced out of the same building in Newtown Square. Now, the April issue comes to you from a brand-new office. With this latest change have come questions—questions about space (we now have less), questions about visibility (we now have more), and questions about what’s important, what we should keep, and what we should jettison.

An intoxicating aura of newness envelops the MLT space—new walls, new offices, new paint, new furniture, new carpeting. We’ve even reduced our carbon footprint with more energy-efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems.

Fittingly, for our annual Green Awards package (page 68), senior writer J.F. Pirroshares the stories of seven agents of change,including NBC10’s Tracy Davidson, whose “little” shredding event has taken on a life of its own. Pirro also profiles Chester Countynative Richie Jones (page 66), who is initiating real change as the director of the Delaware chapter of The Nature Conservancy.

Also in this issue, associate editor MelissaJacobs offers in-depth coverage of the changing healthcare landscape in our latestHealthcare Guide, and contributing editor Tara Behan has the scoop on the area’s most expensive homes (talk about some serious change … pun intended).

Amongother things, she’ll be working with digital editor Kelly Lyons onsome new website initiatives. So keep an eye out for some fresh content on MainLineToday.com in the coming months.
