June 2, 2023 → June ‘Photo of the Month’ is a photograph of a preening white egret titled ‘Bird Within a Dream.’ As an upgraded subscriber, you can receive a monthly digital download of the ‘Photo of the Month’ directly to your email. This file is large enough so that you can make any type of artwork, from fine art paper prints, metallic prints or even pillows. The options are endless. I can also send fine art prints directly to you, by mail, as another option to consider. For more images to view, check out my Instagram gallery.
June 7, 2023 → The Palm Beach County Squeeze is an investigative piece that explores some of the most recent challenges within the county such as rising rents, the premature cancelation of commercial leases, as well as changes in zoning laws and overdevelopment, creating, what some argue, unsustainable conditions. In this story, you’ll hear from a number of locals who have experienced these changes first hand and from those who are fighting back.

June 21, 2023 → A Place Called Chosen is about a town that no longer exists, once located on the western edge of Palm Beach County, along Lake Okeechobee. Chosen, a small farming community established in 1921, after the Everglades drainage project began and during the Florida land boom, was wiped off the map after a devastating hurricane in 1928. This was my favorite story to write and I can’t wait to travel out to these western communities again. If you haven’t yet read the story, this is one you do not want to miss.
