Happy July!

Hope you’re all having a good month!  Great festivities are planned for Wellington’s 4th of July, so check it out.  This includes a Patriotic Pool Party, fun activities face painting, bounce houses, food trucks and at 9:15pm, fireworks.  Read about it.  

Our AW Spotlight story this month is about one of Wellington’s most interesting people…Steve Traynor (pictured above).  Denise Marsh interviewed him about his Project Lighthouse, as well as his pizza making skills.  Find out more about Steve Traynor by going to “AW Spotlight.”

There are a couple of proposals that went before the Equestrian Preserve Committee a couple weeks ago, plans to build residential housing, golfing and other amenities inside the Equestrian Preserve.  Read my interview with an attorney for the Equestrian Preserve Coalition, “The Opposition to Wellington North and Wellington South.”

I’m loving our gardening/ living green tips and I hope you are too.  This month Charmaine Peters teaches how to grow ginger in “Living Green.”

Meanwhile, our fearless Supermom Heidi Hess breaks out of the family tradition of always going to Disney World and finds “A New Kind of Magic” in “Mommy Moments.”

Don’t miss Ingrid Webster’s original continuing cartoon series about a boy named Harold.  See “Harold’s Universe” and be inspired.

And we never know where he will be, but Mike May is always on the move.  This month he takes us to a hidden gem near Portland, Oregon, a floating restaurant called “The Deck.”  Check out “On the Move with Mike.”

In “Paws-itive Press,” Tricia Roberts gives 8 solid reasons to adopt when you go looking for your next pet, most importantly the unconditional love that you discover.  Read “Reasons to Adopt a Rescue Pet.”
