Publisher’s Notes July 2014
This months issue looks a little different, especially the cover. A friend noted, “What does that have to do with Old Town?”…well nothing, but it is relevant to the July Road Trip column. Looking a little Jurassic Park, Iggy was one of three iguana lizards that visited us at the pool on our trip to St. John, USVI. After the cold of this last winter it was nice to escape to the tropics with friends. Read about it in this month’s Road Trip.
The Civil War is in its’ last year 150 years ago and Doug Coleman brings the seesaw battles close to home in his column Civil Discourse as the Rebels and Federals engage each other in battles in Frederick, MD, Silver Spring, Leesburg and throughout Virginia.
Laura Parker captures the essence of another one of the areas interesting people in her Personality Profile column – Rich Bloch isn’t your run of the mill attorney, he’s also a well-known magician and actor. Liz Jones introduces you to a new kid on the block in the Business Profile column– Bubble Dip. A new Thai bubble tea shop on Washington Street. Lori Welch highlights some of the pros and cons of independence is this months Single Space and Ashley Denham Busse reminds us all about the perils the hot weather causes our furry friends in Points on Pets. This and much more in the pages of this issue.
Congratulations this month go out to Team USA in their qualifying for the knockout round of 16 in the World Cup Soccer match, or Futbol as it is known in the rest of the world. I am not much of a soccer fan, but, like the rest of the country, I am cheering for our team and watching every game. Good luck to Team USA in the final round!
