The World Aint So Bad, Guys

@ VOL 7 ON MAR 09, 2017

Being a writer for the 'Arts & Entertainment' and 'Court & Crime' sections can be a conflicting job for Dale Boyd. Dale shares his experience as a newspaper reporter, reflects on current events, and reminds us that negative stories can breed positive change.


Cruiser Control

@ VOL 7 ON MAR 09, 2017

Tony Davis volunteered with the Roatan Marine Park in Honduras, a non-profit conservations organization, trying to preserve and reduce the destruction of its surrounding and still vibrant reef system. One of his jobs with the organization was working with snorkelers visiting on cruise ships to the island, and trying to educate them about reef-safe snorkeling techniques that would both preserve reef health and prevent personal injury.
