Rockin' way to wake up! I got a call this morning from Joan Sullivan, the president of the Newswomen's Club of New York. As it turns out, I'm one of two women selected to receive the Anne O'Hare McCormick award for 2008! Big, big thanks to Brendan McDermid at Reuters, for telling me about it the … Continue reading Anne O’Hare McCormick Scholarship
The second Iraq war vet turned farmer I photographed for this story is the wonderful Chris Whittaker, who now works on Fresh Edibles Community Farm with his father, Bob. Chris got back from Iraq this past September, and between his Army discipline and his dad's mainstream agricultural background, got their farm up and running. Chris … Continue reading Iraq War Vet turned Farmer: Chris Whittaker
