About Us

West Life newspaper is a vital source of community news for the West Side of Cleveland. Communities covered in Lorain and Cuyahoga counties include Avon, Avon Lake, Sheffield Lake, Sheffield Village, Olmsted Falls, North Ridgeville, Lakewood, Rocky River, Westlake, North Olmsted, Bay Village and Fairview Park.

The newspaper is a product of the Douthit Communications Inc. People look to our newspaper and our website, WestLifeNews.com, as arguably the last independent voice in Northeast Ohio for coverage of local governments, schools, clubs, churches and people. 

Our staff was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. We cover the communities in which we have grown up, have made our homes, have entrusted the schools to educate our children, and in which we have made the largest investment of time and money in our lives. As it has been said, all politics is local, and we are the website and newspaper of choice.
