REMEMBERING JENNY GARNEAU

Jenny Garneau was a force of nature. She would walk into a room and could amp up even the most sedate discussion into a highly spirited dialogue. Jenny wouldn’t simply light up a room; she would electrify it. In 2002, gathering in the kitchen of the home of Biff and Linda Levy, along with Bill [...]

SHOWSTOPPER

With big blue eyes, freckles and a flirtatious smile, twenty-two-year-old Alexandra Kopko has a very girl-next-door look, but she’s hardly your typical girl next door.

ULTRA MARATHON MAN

With his legs out-stretched and crossed casually at his ankles, you’d never know that just days ago those same legs carried him over one hundred miles in twenty-four hours, a feat of endurance unheard of on Nantucket.

A WITNESS TO HISTORY

Few can claim to have had a more meteoric rise in the history of American politics than Ben Barnes. By the age of twenty-six, the Texas democrat was already Speaker of the House, the youngest to do so in that state’s history.
