The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

As the DP Times celebrates its eighth anniversary this March—hard to believe, isn’t it, where did the time go—we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our readers and advertising partners for your continued support. It is truly our honor to serve this amazing community every day, online and each week in our paper, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

In an effort to take our efforts even one step further, we’re thrilled to announce the hiring of a new sales/marketing person to our team: Lisa Cosenza.

Lisa comes to us after spending the past 20 years working in community media with the Los Angeles Times community media group, where for the past 10 years she was the director of advertising for all of their community newspapers and websites. Like all of us, she has a passion for community media and brings knowledge and experience to our team.

While Lisa will work across our network of community media properties, such as the San Clemente Times, Dana Point Times and The Capistrano Dispatch, she will primarily focus her attention on San Clemente alongside longtime San Clemente Times sales/marketing rep Michele Reddick and associate publisher Lauralyn Loynes (who also heads up our efforts in Dana Point). Debra Wells continues to focus on The Dispatch and the San Juan Capistrano area.

We have lots of great new projects planned in 2014 and are excited to continue to expand our reputation as your best source for local news.

We invite you to stay connected, not only to our print edition, but also to our online editions and other popular social media outlets such as Facebook and Instagram.

Adding a one-touch bookmark to the home screen of your cell phone or tablet is a great way to stay connected to our websites for up-to-date local news. And for those of you who use iPhones and iPads, it’s now even easier than before. Search (or any of our other titles) in your browser and a convenient prompt appears which allow you to add a home screen button to our publications.

Please reach out to Lisa and help us welcome her to the Picket Fence team at or call her at 949.388.7700 x111.

It’s going to be a great year.
