The August issue of Salisbury the Magazine, a publication of the Salisbury Post, has reached subscribers and is now available in locations throughout Rowan County.

This 36th edition also is available at the Post, 131 W. Innes St., Salisbury.

This month’s stories include a feature on Sidney “Reg” Boland’s classic cars, along with his many collectibles.

The magazine also tells of the courage and perseverance of four Salisbury women — Precious Davis, Linda Wood, Felicia Batten and Saundra Howell  — who have built careers as truck drivers.

Writer Liz Moomey provides a piece on the Salisbury Sculpture Show, which has become an important arts staple in the city. Contributing writer Kris Mueller goes behind the scenes with the Trailblazers, an up-and-coming band with a progressive take on bluegrass.

A group of High Rock Lake residents get together every second and fourth Tuesday to eat and socialize by lashing their boats together into a large flotilla. The magazine takes you out on the lake with them.

Bob and Stephanie Potter, owners of the Salisbury Wine Shop, take you much farther away with their story and photographs of a monthlong trip earlier this year to South Africa.

Deirdre Parker Smith gives readers insights into the success of Gianni and Mona Moscardini and their La Cava restaurant, now in its 25th year.

Smith also provides reading recommendations in Bookish. Shavonne Walker catches up with Clerk of Court Jeff Barger for a question-and-answer interview as the Rowan Original.

Look for a Through the Lens photo, a Salisbury’s the Place art contribution from Rebecca Little, an August calendar and Scene photos from Pops at the Post, Flip-flops & Flamingos, the Cheerwine Festival, St. Paul’s Cruise ‘n Barbecue, the Campbell Golf Classic and the hospital auxiliary’s membership meeting.
