April 1, 2023 → When a Store Leaves Town explores the recent departure of Sprouts Farmers Market in Wellington, FL. and what it means to a community when a beloved store leaves the area. HINT: It leaves a hole, not only as an empty storefront, but also in the hearts of shoppers who relied on the location and built relationships with store employees.

April 5, 2023 →Compliance in the City takes a look back at the history of face masks during the 1918 Spanish Flu, exploring themes that parallel the Covid-19 pandemic, and how both pro and anti-maskers interacted with one another. In many parts of the story you may not know which time is which, 1918 or 2020. For an introspective read you do not want to miss, click the link below. *Note* This story is located in the ‘Introspect’ section of The Neighborly where we examine past events and people with an emphasis on the human condition and relevance in today’s world.
April 12, 2023 →In a Fast-Growing City, the Pursuit of Greatness comes to you from Ocala, Fl., the horse capitol of the world, where legendary horses and state-of-the-art equestrian facilities are transforming Ocala from a sleepy rural area to a fast-growing city. Learn more about the World Equestrian Center and hear from the Director of Equestrian Operations, Christina Baxter.
April 15, 2023 → The Iguana Conundrum is about nonnative iguanas in South Florida. I decided to write a story about these green spiny reptiles because, although I love animals and nature, sometimes choices have to be made to protect some life while other life must be sacrificed. It’s a story as old as time: who lives and who dies? Join me as I hop in a boat with two iguana trappers as we travel along a canal in Riviera Beach looking for green iguanas.

April 26, 2023 → How a Pandemic Changed Relationships explores the way a pandemic transformed relationships in both positive and negative ways. Read the true accounts of fellow Americans, in their own words, about what they experienced. This is a story you do not want to miss. *Note* This story is located in the ‘Introspect’ section of The Neighborly where we examine past events and people with an emphasis on the human condition and relevance in today’s world.
