Publisher's Note

We hope you all have a wonderful July celebrating Independence Day, enjoying fresh summer fruits, and spending time with the people you love the most.

Welcome to July, readers! What a crazy summer it has been so far, with wildfires obliterating our beautiful views and devastating our neighbors to the north. We hope the fires find you and your family safe, and we have devoted this month’s issue of Stroll to things you can do inside this summer when getting outside is not an option. 

I may not be a contender on Chopped, but anytime I spend in the kitchen exploring a new recipe is fun. Striped Bass Puttanesca utilizes an ingredient found nearby – striped bass – with puttanesca, a red sauce originating from Naples, Italy. Not only is July’s Resident Recipe tasty, but the chef also teaches you how you can catch and cook this spicy dish!

If you’re in need of orthopedic care, our Sponsor Spotlight showcases Orthopaedic Associates of Manhasset (OAM), who recently opened a beautiful 6,000 square foot location in Huntington. Several of the physicians at OAM call Huntington home, and one of those, Dr. Burlage, says, “It’s very rewarding to be able to treat patients in the community where you live . . . “ Learn more about this practice and available services inside this issue of Stroll.

Wildfires and 9 to 5 desk jobs can keep us inside and sedentary, which is why Helen to the Rescue talks about one huge threat of sitting still for too long: deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This condition is often associated with airplanes, but it can also be caused by being seated too long at your 9 to 5. Helen outlines what DVT is, why it is dangerous, and what you can do to prevent it – including incorporating moving breaks into your workday. 

Nothing is better than spending summer hours in the pages of a good book, which is why we love our monthly book reviews! History buffs will enjoy The Splendid and the Vile.  In this novel, Eric Larson chronicles Churchill leading the British and teaching them “the art of being fearless.” Read the review and then hit the library to check out a copy.
Until August,
