Emmy, 72, and Richard Artim, 68, of Port Richey dance to the songs of the good old days during a big band jam session at American Legion Post 335 in Hudson in September.

I like this February photo of Edd Webb stretching his leg because it shows the courage of the former Gulf High School coach as he struggles to keep his body in shape despite his cancer. "The good Lord had something else in mind because I'm still hanging around," Webb said.

Wayne Westenberger gives a dog named Dog a hug by his home in the woods off U.S. 19 in Hudson. If you met Wayne you would feel welcome and at ease because he is a warm, positive person despite his plight. I like this picture because it shows his personality.
