    As the month begins to stretch into the long sun of summer, let’s take a moment to honor some student interns and scholarship recipients. 

    The Citrus Cultural Alliance (CCA) is a consortium of artists, writers, photographers, gallery owners, business people, venues and musicians. One of the organization’s roles to enhance the presence of the arts in our fair county. CCA supports, through stipends, interns at local galleries and arts organizations.

    Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will focus on Florida’s Black bears during the month of June. There will be displays and hands-on activities in the Visitor Center and in the Discovery Center throughout the month, and a special program is planned Thursday, June 15.

  • From the refreshing sweet peach iced tea served in mason jars, to the sumptious soul food buffet, diners are hard pressed to go away hungry after visiting one of Dunnellon’s newest cafes, the Southern Palate.

    The little restaurant is right on the town’s main street (U.S. 41), directly across from the city police department, and amply fills a need for authentic deep South cooking.

  • I’ve heard it said that not everybody likes (loves) chocolate. Now, that’s really hard to imagine. My personal fondness for rich, dark chocolate was reaffirmed last week during a trip to Ocala for dinner at The Melting Pot, a fondue experience that left everyone still craving the treat.
