See This Polar Bear Exhibit at White’s


White’s Fine Art Gallery (2414 Honolulu Ave.) owner Miguel shares, “While on location in the Arctic, wildlife photographer Greg Cook spotted a polar bear taking shelter from a bone-chilling wind. Greg, on a boat and on high alert, closely watched the bear. It wasn’t long before the bear spotted Greg and, with intense curiosity, got up and started to walk towards him. Suddenly the bear stood up for approximately six-seconds. Within that fleeting moment, Greg acquired focus, composed and captured the shot.”

According to Greg, “It’s an adrenalin rush when it happens and absolutely thrilling when you confirm that you got the shot.”

Greg is passionate about wildlife photography and White’s is passionate about showing it! Now you can experience Greg’s work when you stop by White’s Fine Art Gallery, a “one-of-a-kind” gallery in the Montrose Shopping Park.

Remembering Pugsley


Not many people make worldwide news when they pass away like our friend Ken Weatherwax did. Ken was the original Pugsley in The Addam’s Family TV show and he enjoyed the Montrose Shopping Park. His memorial was conducted by MSPA’s Dale Dawson. Amazing the things you find out reading this column! Watch for pics on our Facebook page and a link to the untold story of Ken’s life.
