Story: Leigh Neely // Photo: Fred Lopez Finding inspiration is something writers think about often. You may witness a simple act that triggers something in your imagination to create a…
The Boss Lady lifestyle

The Boss Lady lifestyle

The Boss Lady is a woman who is in control. She oozes confidence and an aura of independence, as well as commanding respect from those people around her and perhaps even those who have only heard or read about her.

Feline Politics

Story: Mary Ann Desantis One is black; the other is white and gray. One is conservative and quite picky about his food. He’s also quite selective about the people he lets get close. The other is liberal about everything, including treats (one is never enough) and people. Anyone who comes to the door can pick her up. Meet my rescue cats: Ernie, the conservative, and…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Bikefest

The sound of bikers revving up their engines and the sight of leather-clad men and women can mean only one thing. Leesburg Bikefest has arrived.

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 am a champion. At least…
Always improving

Always improving

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…

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…
