Down a long dirt road on the border of Duval and Clay counties, where the open air is clean and the sun just begins to peek through the clouds, is a farm that houses organic fruits, vegetables, livestock, honeybees and other commodities.
But for Adam Burke, founder of Veterans Farm, this farm is far from ordinary. The disabled combat veterans who work the farm during a six-month fellowship are more valuable than the goods they produce.
“I am very selective in [the veterans] I choose,” Burke, a U.S. Army veteran, said. “This is not about a paycheck. It’s about tranquility, peace in life, people who are looking for a change, to grow in their lives.”
Aside from the occasional asthma, Flagler student Corey Christian, 22, is in perfectly good health. So it came as a surprise when he found it harder and harder to breathe, even in his own home.
“When I was just laying in my bed and I’d have the window open and like a fan on me, just trying to get some air and I was out of breath” he said “I couldn’t stop coughing, I would actually vomit from how much I was coughing.”

The corner of Cordova and Cuna will be getting a new look, but it will not only be for communication students.
Plans to demolish 31 Cordova, the current communications building, which is beside The Floridian restaurant, are already in motion, with a new two-story academic building replacing it. Still in the conceptual stages of planning, the vision for the academic building includes 12 classrooms, several faculty offices, a studio Mac lab and a screening room that will seat 108. The cost is estimated to be $5.5 million.

In December 2011 during fall finals, Zachary Tatter, 23, stood outside the Proctor Library and preached to students. Tatter, along with his followers, continue to return to the sidewalks of Flagler College’s campus and around downtown St. Augustine to preach their Christian beliefs.

For Flagler College theater arts majors, the senior conservatory class is like taking on a full time job. For senior Dylan Pembleton, the work load in the theater department alone was not enough to create his ideal one act play.

After a year of waiting, only minutes keep them apart.
Jenniffer DuBose watches as the bus rumbles to a stop. Her heart skips as soldiers, one-by-one, step down onto the sidewalk.
She spots her fiancé, Troy Edenfield — his familiar face hiding beneath a camouflage cap. Her heart tells her to run and embrace him, but her mind locks her in place.

The Flagler College women’s soccer team concluded its regular season with a win on senior night against conference opponent Georgia College last Saturday.
“The win Saturday was the best feeling all season,” Rebekah Stockowski, senior captain, said. “I have been the only person who has been on the team for four years, and we have never won a senior night since I have been here. Winning on mine was an awesome feeling.”

For Richard Glover, who worked as a firefighter in New York City for 26 years, anniversaries are bittersweet.
Even though Glover and his wife, Janet, retired to Palm Coast, Fla., five or six years ago, the wounds of Sept. 11, 2001, have not yet healed.

Nick Waters* is your typical college student. He hits the beach with friends, goes to parties, lives in a nice house he rents out with two friends, and begrudgingly goes to class. But Waters also struggles with something not a lot of others face: addiction to Oxycodone.

Hot pink leopard curtains hang in one window and bohemian green fixtures dress the other. Bright paintings filled with vibrant color, flowers, human faces, snakes, skulls and female genitalia surround the perimeter of the room. One after the other, each is completely unique from its neighbor. They all have a story, a meaning. And each painting is determined to evoke some kind of emotion hidden beneath human layers.

“I liked the feeling of being starving,” she said.
Martin said some days she would reach 150 calories, max.
“Some days I’d just have coffee,” Martin said. “After two days, I would break down and have a salad.”
