Mansfield Magazine's January-February 2017 Issue - New Adventures in Mansfield & Beyond

Jan 20, 2017 06:59PM, Published by Melanie Heisinger, Categories: In Print




New Adventures in Mansfield, and Beyond

I have to say that this was really an interesting and fun issue of Mansfield Magazine to organize and put together. It’s always the people of Mansfield who are so interesting and inspirational and we found several to bring to you in this issue. 

First up were Arianne Shipley and Stephanie Zavala. Both serve as education specialists with the Water Utilities Division in Mansfield, and as coordinators for Keep Mansfield Beautiful. Together, they oversee the education and awareness efforts for the water utilities and environmental services departments. If you are interested in what Mansfield is doing to raise the awareness of our natural resources, check out Community Profile this time.

Over in Kennedale, Leslie Galloway impresses with all that she can handle as city secretary, communications coordinator, and staff liaison for the Youth Advisory Council. That’s a tall order. I had the opportunity to interview her specifically about the city’s Youth Advisory Council, a great program that brings high school students right into the middle of community and local government. Read more in Your Neighbor.

I also had a chance to make a trip over to South Arlington to meet with restaurateur Khang Vo. Originally from Vietnam, Vo spent years in Hawaii before settling in North Texas. What he brought with him is a love for the island culinary staple known as a poke bowl. He flies in fresh fish from Hawaii and serves up the delicacy daily at his Ahi Poke Bowl shop. Stop by to try it out and chat with Vo, you’ll be glad you did.

Our HomeStyle section this time has some great ideas for decluttering your home. It’s a new year and here are several ways to make a fresh start. Our Lawn & Garden section features Steve Huddleston’s take on growing and caring for roses in the harsh Texas climate and how to protect them from a deadly virus known as rose rosette disease.

Of course, everything else you expect is here in the pages of this issue. Cookin’ with CarolRoadtripFinancial Matters and Health &Wellness are all here.

We hope you enjoy this new issue of Mansfield Magazine. Sit back, relax and thumb through the pages as you sit by a warm fire. After all, it will be spring before we know it – and we’ll be ready with a fresh new issue of the magazine.


Browse around for articles and information on everything you need to know about the local community and let us know what you’d like to see more of!
