Meet Your Publisher
Tim Metcalf launched Stroll The Lakeside Area Magazine (also known as Lakeside District Living) in July 2016. After having much success with that product, he began the BeLocal Garland County magazine in November 2020. In February 2021, Tim and Mary were married and now form the team that produces both publications each month.
BeLocal is a great resource for new movers to our area. We did extensive research to provide the readers with information on where the locals shop, eat, play and volunteer. It is a beautiful publication that introduces the best of our community, including the local businesses, to our new residents.
When they are not working on the magazines, Tim and Mary love to visit the local restaurants, listen to live music, watch Nascar and football and hang out with friends. They recently attempted line dancing, and the verdict is still out on that! Between the two of them, they have eight children and 10 grandchildren in four different states, so traveling is a given!

The publication has been a tremendous asset for me and my family in getting us situated and familiarized with the area. The layout is upscale, easy to navigate, and filled with vibrant color and content. The local tips add an instant trusted connection from one resident to another. Thank you for putting together such a beautiful and helpful piece!
The BeLocal magazine undoubtedly helped my family and I discover what makes Lincoln so special. We feel so warmly welcomed to the area, and our whole family has enjoyed reading and looking through the publication.
BeLocal is a high-quality magazine that demands the attention of anyone that lays eyes on it. I wish I would have had access to it when I moved!
