The past month, for so many around here, was dominated by the aftermath of the May 26 flood. Along with the destruction and grief have come tales of rescue and generosity, often made possible via social media. See this month’s story by Jordan Magaziner Steinfeld, The Flood and Facebook. The July issue also reveals the winners of our 10th annual Buzz Photo Contest. This year, we included a new category called Readers’ Choice. Look inside to see which photos earned the most “Likes” on our Facebook page, and which ones our judges deemed the best, including our grand champion. Now that we’re deep into summer, if you haven’t been to Galveston yet, you’re probably thinking about going. If you’re a newcomer who has never explored our neighboring beach community, or if it’s been a while since your last visit, you’ll want to clip out the article Going to Galveston. Born-on-the-island writer Andria Frankfort interviewed other BOI Buzz residents to discover their favorite Galveston places. See you at the beach. [email protected]
