Legendary Leaders

Legendary Leaders

Welcome to our second edition of Legendary Leaders. We introduced our first issue last year, and the response to the coverage was overwhelming. So, of course, the natural thing to do was to do it again. However, this year we go a little bit deeper and brought you much more than just our local leaders. We are also highlighting legendary businesses and legendary places throughout…
She’s got the whole world in her hands

She’s got the whole world in her hands

Story: Rheya Tanner To the people in my hometown, I’m what you might call a legend. I’m known as a traveler, a beast tamer. I have seen every jagged corner of the country, and I’ve tested my mettle against anyone who’s offered a challenge. My journey was not without its failures, but I worked my way to the top. I am a champion. At least…
Always improving

Always improving

“To be the standard in which others are measured.”  This is one of my favorite quotes and from the moment I heard it, I have tried my best to live it. This quote also rings true for one of my good friends, Lena Williams. I have known Lena now for several years, personally and professionally. She is a mother, a wife, friend to many, and…
Thanks for the memories

Thanks for the memories

The song “Reunited” by Peaches & Herb brings back memories and so do reunions.  Story: Debbi Kiddy Whether it’s a family, high school, college, military, or some other reunion, reuniting with those from our past stirs emotions and memories. Most are fond and happy recollections of school days, such as the special people and groups we joined in athletics, music, service, or social clubs. Some…

What’s New?

Widowhood calls for embracing a ‘new normal’

Widowhood calls for embracing a ‘new normal’

Story: Theresa Campbell A new year can be exciting, yet for widows like me, it’s the start of another year filled with an unexplainable feeling that’s hard to put into words. “We are dealing with an emptiness that we never could have planned for. We don’t have what we thought we might have for the rest of our lives,” says my friend Cindy Brewer. She’s…
Votes are in, and the people have spoken.

Votes are in, and the people have spoken.

Bet you thought I was referring to the presidential election that just took place last month. Nope, I was referring to the Style Singles. This is now our second year of promoting Lake and Sumter’s most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, and it just keeps getting better and better. Why is this important? Well, I don’t think our topics always need to be earth shattering or…
Don’t Let the Holidays Get You Down

Don’t Let the Holidays Get You Down

I used to love watching the holiday episodes of “Roseanne.” They were always chaotic, family-centered meals that closely resembled the ones in the house where I grew up. We had some real characters (as most families do), and I have memories of some great holiday meals. Though my father had only one brother, my mother came from a family of 10 children. Each of those…
He’s so EXTRA. (It’s a good thing.)

He’s so EXTRA. (It’s a good thing.)

As the mother of five millennials, I am constantly introduced to a new language. It sounds like our English language, but it has been manipulated to mean something completely different from what I was originally taught. Unlike traditional language, the millennial vocabulary is ever changing, and ever so quickly. Once I think I know what they are saying, and even begin to use the language…
Turkey Day Tragedies

Turkey Day Tragedies

Memories of Thanksgiving Day do not always conjure the famous Norman Rockwell painting that we all hope to emulate. The first Thanksgiving I can remember is when I had just turned five. My memory doesn’t look anything like Norman Rockwell’s 1942 “Freedom from Want” painting; instead, it’s a rather bizarre image of a headless turkey running through my grandparents’ back yard. For some ungodly reason,…
