Ashley’s Column — Abroad with Down Time

Circa 2009 “Because she’s deaf…she never heard people tell her it was impossible,” said Jim Fiolek as he stood alongside the motocross track in Lake Elsinore, CA, watching his daughter, Ashley, ride. And yet, something tells us that it wouldn’t have slowed her down even if she had heard. By the age of 17, ... Read more

The Vineyard’s Voice

Before it was known for the ferry ride, blue-shell crab and tangerine sunsets, my home, Martha’s Vineyard, was occupied by the Wampanoag Indians. The tribe is still around and has its own trust lands on the southwest part of the Vineyard. The Island is about 20 miles long east to west, not even as ... Read more

But when ABILITY Magazine’s Chet Cooper traveled to Beijing to meet some of his counterparts in publishing, he found himself forming lasting friendships. During that time, ABILITY Magazine and China ... Read more
