The Thirty-A Review September 2020

Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Miles K. Neiman


We’ve been through it. Quarantines. Social dis- tancing. Wearing masks as we shop. Very few of us could have imagined these conditions of a “new normal” a year ago. Yet here we are.

30-A Strong stands for anyone who is doing their best to keep life, art, community, and commerce on 30-A moving forward. It stands for the mavericks, business- people, chefs, lifeguards, artists and community leaders who have stood tall, come dressed to play ball, and keep our community thriving. If you know of someone like this personally, who you feel deserves recognition, send me an email about them. We’d love to include them in future stories. In the meantime, stay strong in the storm. Fight the good fight. And know that we are all in this together and we will be together when it’s over. 30-A Strong. Sincerely,

Managing Editor Jennifer Thompson

With every obstacle, we have two choices in life: Let it stop us in our tracks and defeat us, or pivot, stand tall and embrace the challenges and fight that come with every obstacle. In the spirit of the latter, we have coined the phrase, 30-A Strong.
