    Letter From

    THE PUBLISHER

    Cindy Sebring Adams

    I am so excited to share with you our first issue of Heart-land LIVING for 2015. Last year was amazing and I feel I have grown so much with you and the magazine in so many ways. Thank you for sharing all your thoughts, ideas and compliments. As I enter into this new year laced with ex-citement of new beginnings, a fresh start, new goals set and endless possibilities, I feel very blessed and ready to take on all the challenges life has to offer with you.

    As for a challenge, the team of Conservationist Mallory Dimmitt, Biologist Joe Guthrie and Photographer & National Geographic Explorer Carlton Ward Jr. is conquering a journey from Glades to Gulf. It is an honor to share with you this

    journey with the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition team that is hiking, biking, canoeing and paddling their way more than 1000 miles across the heart of Florida on a 70-day long journey. The Florida Wildlife Corridor is devoted to advancing a statewide network of wildlife corridors in order to ensure the long-term survival of wildlife, the health of life-sustaining freshwater flows and the continued vibrancy of Floridas rural way of life.

    This team started their journey on Jan. 10 at Creek Ranch in Haines City with a send-off brunch and was joined by family, friends and Senator Bill Nelson. Heartland LIVING was honored to be a part of the start of this amazing expedition. The journey began from Everglades Headwaters, going across the Panhandle and will be ending at the Alabama border. We know you will enjoy reading about their journey and we hope to follow up with the end of the expedition. I want to say thank you to the team for interviewing with Audra Clemons while on your journey and to Carlton Ward Jr. and his gallery manager, Lisa Baylor for staying in contact and sending us your gorgeous photos along the way.

    I hope you enjoy reading about and get the opportunity to explore some of the hidden treasures Florida has to offer in the Insiders Top 10 Things To Do In Florida. These places offer unique experiences to enjoy with your family and friends and you might even be able to mark something off your bucket list.

    Speaking of special places to visit, the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation not only has the Brighton Casino but is also hosting their annual 77th Field Day Festival & Rodeo this month. Upon reading about their culture and celebration, this would be an exciting event to attend. The event gets larger and more exciting each year and this year is no exception. Adding to the guest list will be Britney, Kasey and Chelsea Brooks from the new GAC show Growing up Gator along with the performance of the blues-rock band Osceola Brothers.

    What a blessing Im gifted with for a profession I love. It amazes me how many times people come up to me and comment about their appreciation for Heartland LIVING and what we are bringing to the communities. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement of all our advertisers and readers. Thank you!

    God Bless,
