The Balance of Bikes and Motorists As a concerned cyclist and motorist on the island, I would like to weigh in on the relationship between the two. DI is one of the more comfortable places to cycle on … but this is only true if both drivers and cyclists are responsible and aware of each other...
In a bizarre coincidence of timing, I finished reading “The Color of Law” on May 25, just three days before the issue of systemic racism reemerged on the national stage. The book reveals, in extraordinary detail, how local, state and federal regulators, throughout the 20th century, economically...
As someone who can quote the entirety of “The Devil Wears Prada” and was fascinated by the documentary “The September Issue,” I love a good tell-all about Anna Wintour. I also have admired Andre Leon Talley since he first began working in the glossy magazine trade. But his memoir “The Chiffon...
To wear a mask or not, that is the question. As a local family physician, this is the question that I get more times a day than I can count and have been for more than three months.    The answer has changed over the course of these three months. It is quite understandable why the general...

In support of Mark Smith   I want to remind all voters of the opportunity and privilege to vote on June 23 in the runoff election! This past Tuesday, candidate Mark Smith was on the sidewalk asking for your vote and support. He has worked very hard to prepare for this opportunity to serve...
It’s nearly Father’s Day. Sons and daughters are racking their brains trying to figure out what in blazes to buy dear old Dad this year. Even sons who are fathers themselves are at a loss as to what Dad might possibly want on his special day. You might think that the solution to this problem would...
