  • POETRY PLACE: A Slice
    Friday, July 13, 2018 7:00 AM
    As a child, eyes barely above the counter, wide with wonder, I watch a pizza maker throw and stretch a lump of sticky, dimpled dough. Swirls it like a flying saucer and flings it into summer air. Spinning out, the circle expands. He pulls the piece flat and full at the edges, dresses dough in tomato sauce and chunks of moist mozzarella. 

    As he opens the door to the giant metal oven, a blast of heat and the crusty aroma of pizza rushes out. He slides the pie on a flat wooden pallet into the cavern to bake, bubble and brown. Crisp crust mixed with salt air from the bay rolls back the years as I bite into a slice, careful not to burn my tongue.

  • SC Photographer Chosen for Florida Photographed Publication
    Monday, June 25, 2018 2:23 PM

    A photo by Chuck Larsen, a resident of Sanibel, was selected to be part of the Photographed Edition of the Florida Weekly, published the week of June 22. Each year Florida Weekly searches the state for the best photographs for the special edition.

    The photo of diving pelicans was taken on the beach from Somerset at the Reef condos on West Gulf Drive. Eddie Raddatz of Florida Weekly who curated the selections, cites the "profound reverence of the fine art of photography" in the photos selected.

    "I've watched Pelicans diving before, but one day I noticed they were in precise formation. The lead would dive and the others would follow in order", said Larsen, who contributes photographs for the Santiva Chronicle during the year.
