Living The American Dream
In his book, The Epic of America, published in 1931 during the Great Depression, James Truslow Adams introduced the concept of the American Dream: “that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.” In short, we don’t have to be born with a silver spoon in our mouth. We can all achieve our dreams if we just work hard and stay out of trouble.
In an even more sanguine Hollywood version of the American Dream, a nice guy in a small town marries his high school sweetheart, they raise a family—let’s say, two boys and a girl—he makes his fortune, and they live happily ever after. Meet Bill Stiver, and you can have it either way.

The World’s Busiest Man?“
"I have to be doing something all the time. I can’t sit still,” David Dignam admits in a moment of introspection.
Bingo! He’s got that right. He is one busy guy—a founder, a funder, a fixer, a door-opener, a donor and a doer. He started life in high gear, and he doesn’t intend to stop until Mother Nature tells him, “Enough already.”

She's The Real Church Lady
Who among us hasn’t seen Dana Carvey’s hilarious sendup of the “Church Lady” on Saturday Night Live? His skits brought him acclaim as the tightly wound hostess of Church Chat, whose standard putdown of her interviewees was a smug, “Well, isn’t that spesh-ull!”...

Who Are These People, Anyway?
One of the oddities of living in a retirement community like Englewood is that we share enjoyable relationships with many of our neighbors without knowing what interesting secrets may be hidden in their past lives. We know them as fellow bird lovers or golfing buddies or bridge companions or morning walkers or dog lovers. But do we really know them?...

When Our Country Called, He Answered
Though born in New York City in 1938 to a well-to-do Wall Street executive, Winsor G. Eveland, Jr. grew up as a country boy. How so? Well, when he and his fraternal twin Keith were three years old, Winsor Sr. inherited a 118-acre dairy farm in Richboro, Pennsylvania and–with the country still reeling from the Great Depression and a new hot war in Europe–promptly decided to become a white-collar farmer. Literally...

Just who is Amanda Glam?
Have you ever wondered if the writer of this newspaper’s movie/TV reviews is really named Amanda Glam? I mean, a mellifluous moniker like that could equally well belong to a movie idol, a sultry singer, a fashion model, a Broadway celeb … or someone whose maiden name was Glam...

Portrait Of An Artist As A Young Man
Bill Farnsworth has to be one of the most visibly notable persons in our neighborhood. Look no further than the Hughes Gallery in Boca Grande or the Dabbert Gallery in Sarasota–or in some of the finest art galleries in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North and South Carolina, Texas and Colorado–for evidence.

There's A Maven In Our Haven
Though he probably hasn’t thought about it that way, Englewood’s Rich Entlich has been a problem solver pretty much all of his life... Math was his strong suit through grade school and high school, and everyone knows math is all about solving problems: word problems, numerical problems, equations, even “theories of everything” to explain our universe and how we got here...
