We’re starting a weekly newsletter. Most people find out about our articles through Facebook, which doesn’t show every article to every person who “Likes” our Facebook page. Some articles do very well, while others don’t reach many people.
We can tell a lot of people miss a lot of our articles. Some complain that all we write about is crime, when that’s at most 20% of what we cover. Others ask questions that we’ve already answered (“What’s going on with the old Walmart?”).

The Pavo Real Gallery’s 13th Annual “Frogman” Event raised $1,000 for N.I.C.K.’s Camp (Nothing’s Impossible for Cancer Kids)—a summer program at the Boggy Creek Camp Facility in Eustis, Fla. for children with cancer, sponsored by the Chiera Family Foundation. This year, Randall Grenadier, N.I.C.K’s Camp attendee, enjoyed the Frogman-filled weekend, where she had a chance to pick out one of her own bronze frog sculptures, specially signed by the “Frogman.” His exquisite work—bronze frog sculptures that range in size from miniature to monumental and feature vibrant patina finishes—have become favorites to many including Oprah, Justin Timberlake and Samuel L. Jackson.
