Cover Story

JULY/AUGUST 2017

For 36 years, the Family Sunshine Center has been a beacon of hope to victims of family violence, and/or sexual assault. This includes women, men and children. Offering hope, healing, and eventual happiness, the Family Sunshine Center’s mission is to aid victims of domestic violence and assault. Many arrive at the Family Sunshine Center with often just the clothing on their back. After a series of counseling sessions, self-esteem workshops, and other aid, these individuals gain the tools to be independent of their abusers. Although this process is not an easy one, the victims are always appreciative of the center’s aid. Many even come back to the center to share their testimonies of healing with supporters.

Table Talk

JULY/AUGUST 2017

As a husband and wife who enjoy eating and drinking both with our motley crew of kids and without, the Andersons are not often blown away by new restaurants. In fact, it never really happens. But when we walked in the door of The Cork & Cleaver Gastropub, in the section of Midtown that we often cruise right by in favor of pizza, the first thing noticed was the open kitchen and the smiling face of the line cook who greeted us, pan sizzling. Her broad smile set the tone for our visit.

Don't Ask... Doc Tells

JULY/AUGUST 2017

We live in a culture that is infatuated with unsolved mysteries and uncommon phenomenon.
