Salisbury the Magazine summer issue now available – Salisbury Post
SALISBURY – The summer (June-July) issue of Salisbury the Magazine, a publication of the Salisbury Post, has reached subscribers and is now available at its regular outlets elsewhere in Rowan County.
Current and past issues of the magazine can also be obtained from the Salisbury Post head office, 131 W. Innes St.
The cover of this issue features journalist Natalie Anderson moments after jumping out of a plane as part of her experience with Piedmont Skydiving, based at Mid-Carolina Airport. Inside, Anderson writes about the Piedmont skydiving operation and gives a first-person account of his tandem jump with instructor Allen Taylor.
Collaborative writer Ben White showcases the delicious side of summer with his story about a roadside oasis – the Dairy Queen on West Innes Street. Operated by Melissa Utley, this particular DQ is a Salisbury landmark, having been in business for over 70 years.
Sports writer Mike London gives readers a glimpse of Emily and Katie Knorr, twin sisters of Salisbury High, state swimming champions. They turned their success in the pool into Division I college scholarships, and London details how these sisters, supporting each other, did a dedicated job.
The magazine also visits the no-kill shelter run by Faithful Friends, a non-profit organization dedicated to spaying and neutering and finding homes for cats and dogs in need of a break.
Historic Salisbury Foundation contributes to another When History Speaks article, in which Leah Campion writes about how Salisbury Station went from a dilapidated depot to a major community event venue.
Street artist Joseph Heilig, who spends most of his days on a South Main Street bench drawing and talking with passers-by, is Rowan Original from this edition. In Bookish, Alissa Redmond gives three reading recommendations for the summer. Katie Scarvey took the photo for the Through the Lens page, and Beth Taft contributed the artwork for Salisbury’s the Place.
As always, the images win the day, and photographers Jon Lakey and Sean Meyers provided the images to accompany the features.
In this particular issue, a few Scenes pages are also devoted to photos sent by readers.
Salisbury the Magazine publishes nine times a year. Writers and photographers are currently working on the August issue, which is expected to reach subscribers in mid-July and be distributed elsewhere in Rowan County by the end of the month.
