Non-profit organizations and businesses reflect the selflessness that has been lost in America. Our capitalist culture has created a “me first” attitude for many of us, making it hard to find someone willing to give of their time freely … or has it? If you are reading this, you probably disagree with the previous statement. You are someone who gives of their time, resources, money consistently, and you know many others who also do the same.   Thank you!   Because of people like you, non-profit organizations are able to help individuals get back on their feet. With programs for…

Many a mile I have walked, traversing the streets of historic Downtown Pensacola. Like an aficionado of fine art sauntering down exhibit aisles, curiosity piqued, eagerly anticipating the next great work to marvel, I gazed upon historic building after historic building in wonder of the fascinating stories they could tell. My fervor for historic architecture began when I was an undergraduate student at the University of West Florida. I was a history, philosophy, and art history triple major; I loved it all. While completing an historic architecture-related project for an art history course, I took to the streets of Downtown…

I like this picture of Benny and me, even though it’s not really of us, but of our shadows. Any viewer knows that a person and a dog stood in this grassy area at a time when the sun was low and that someone took a picture of the shadows and not the person or the dog. These shadows reach far into the yard, much farther than I could stretch my arms or legs. I now see this photo as a metaphor for the reach our lives have on others, even if we’re not physically in the picture. Anyone who…

House on Lot 23 The history of Pensacola is rich and enduring, indeed. Known as the “City of Five Flags,” Pensacola has been under the control of five nations since its inception in 1559–Spain, France, England, the Confederacy, and the United States. Consequently, various architectural influences are evident in much of Pensacola’s historic architecture. During the Third Spanish Period (1781-1821), the Isaac Wright House–a modest cottage that has long piqued my interest–was constructed at what is now 431 E. Zaragoza St. in historic downtown Pensacola. This quaint cottage, as one might expect from a structure initially built approximately 200 years…

One of the greatest things I have loved about Pensacola, Florida is the variety of musicians that come through our little big town.  I’ve lived many places but for a town whose population is around 55K people, we have some of the best and most talented musicians you will find anywhere.  It is not unusual to find live music playing every night in some restaurant in Pensacola, Florida. Pensacola Bay Center does a great job of bringing the biggest names in music to our city from Elton John to the Newsboys. Live Music and Nightlife If you are thinking about…
