A newspaper for El Lago is published 9 months of the year by a volunteer staff of residents. "The Window of the Lake" attempts to keep the community informed and is where you will find news from the Mayor and City Hall, the Lakeview Police Department and the Water District. The paper is thrown the 1st week of each month, except in January, July, and August.
Sales of luminaries at Christmas time are the main source of funds for the paper. Sidewalks aglow with the candlelight from the luminaries and has become a Christmas Eve tradition.
