New features and attractions at the 2018 show include:

  • Whether envisioning a dream home with a rustic feel and all the modern luxuries or a space that’s completely off-the-grid, the Weaver Cabins have them covered. The first of two cabins built by Weaver Barns is a 2,100-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath rustic cabin; the second is an approximately 600-square-foot, off-the-grid cabin that offers a unique concept in utilizing solar power in the home.
  • The approximately 1,500-square-footXtend Technologies’ High-Tech Luxury Lower Level built by Pepperwood Homes will inspire visitors with ideas for their own indoor/outdoor entertainment and recreation areas. This one-of-a-kind living space will feature the latest in home automation from Xtend Technologies. Guests can experience live demonstrations in Xtend Technologies’ home theater.

  • Tiny Homes by Small Spaces CLE will allow visitors to experience first-hand why a luxury home doesn’t always mean thousands of square feet.
  • Experience one of the biggest trends in camping – glamping – at this feature designed by Cabela’s and The Great Escape. No longer does camping have to mean “roughing it” and leaving the luxuries of home behind.
  • The latest in design inspiration can be found at the Weavers Fine Furniture and Carter Lumber Design Center.

Boomer Magazine Takes Home “Best of Show” and 11 Other Honors

Worth Noting

Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond earned Best of Show and 11 other awards for writing, layout and general excellence at the North American Mature Publishers Association annual convention in Oak Brook, Ill., on Sept. 25.

Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond magazine is a lifestyle publication for active people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. It has a distribution of 35,000 at more than 550 locations throughout Greater Cleveland.

The magazine’s editor is Marie Elium. Laura Chadwick is the art director and designer.

“Just two short years ago we developed Boomer & Beyond for the local market to educate, inspire and entertain readers with the theme of ‘Better Living After 50,’” said Brad Mitchell, Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond publisher and owner of parent company Mitchell Media, LLC. “The early positive response from readers and advertisers helped affirm that we were on the right track. We are thrilled to receive national awards for our magazine and we can’t wait to take it to the next level.”

The School of Journalism of the University of Missouri in Columbia judged the entries submitted by the magazines. Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond competed in the B Division, which represents magazines with a circulation of 25,001-50,000.

For First Place General Excellence, the judges said, “Northeast Ohio Boomer and Beyond offers readers a wide variety of topics, ranging from personality profiles of the 1970s regional musician to glamping and social media how-to tips. It also has a raft of columnists offering both amusement and practical advice – legal, dental, fitness, health, retirement time and money, among others. Kudos also go to a feature about a special friendship between a 25-year-old college student renting a room in a senior citizen housing center and an 81-year-old resident of the center. It’s a touching story.”

The judges’ comments referred to a cover profile of Cleveland rock legend Michael Stanley and a cover story about multi-generational housing at Judson Manor near University Circle.
