March issue of Salisbury the Magazine is now available

SALISBURY — The March 2018 issue of Salisbury the Magazine, a publication of the Salisbury Post, will be distributed throughout Rowan County this week. The magazine reached subscribers last week.

Copies also are available at the circulation desk of the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St.

This issue features a photograph from Elizabeth Holmes Hurley Park on the cover, along with a story and more Jon C. Lakey photographs inside showing the park through four seasons.

In another feature, Rebecca Rider and photographer Wayne Hinshaw offer an inside look at Tiger World, where four of every five animals have been rescued, building on the nonprofit organization’s mission of conservation and education.

In the At Home section, Deirdre Parker Smith visits with Salisbury-born architect Carol Wilson, whose designs have left a distinctive mark on the landscapes of New England.

Another Salisbury native plying his trade elsewhere is actor Kevin Carroll, who lives and works in Los Angeles and continues building an impressive career in movies and television. Jessica Coates and Lakey caught up with Carroll when he made a recent visit home.

Andie Foley details what Novant Health Rowan does with medically managed weight loss and bariatric surgery. And speaking of Novant Health Rowan, Dari Caldwell, president of the medical center, participates in a quick question-and-answer session as this month’s Rowan Original.

The magazine drops in on a memoir-writing class whose enthusiastic students meet monthly at Trinity Oaks. That class is led by freelance writer Susan Shinn Turner, who elsewhere provides the story behind Gary Ritchie and Gary’s Barbecue in China Grove.

Smith offers three reading recommendations in Bookish. Betty Mickle pens the “Salisbury’s the Place” column for this issue, and you might see many of your friends and neighbors in “Scene” pictures from events such as the Bell Tower New Year’s celebration, the Old Stone House Christmas, the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce Gala and the Big Band Bash.

Salisbury the Magazine publishes nine times a year. The April 2018 issue should reach subscribers about March 21.
