Jonathan Volzke is a 20-year journalism veteran who launched The Capistrano Dispatch in 2002.

The Dispatch merged with the San Clemente Times in 2007, and the Dana Point Times was created in 2008.

All three community papers provide hyper-local coverage of their cities, helping residents sort through the events and decisions that affect their lives.

In 2007, a statistically accurate poll commissioned by the city of San Juan Capistrano confirmed that The Capistrano Dispatch is residents' top choice among weekly papers for news about their city.
