Top Stories: Hurricane Harvey Presents Tough Choices, The Story Behind Worthy Threads Apparel, Wit & Wisdom’s Pig Roast

0

Our most popular read from this week plays with the heartstrings. Seeing photos of animals stranded by Hurricane Harvey, and reading about a boy who died trying to rescue his sister’s cat from the flood, columnist Marion Winik stopped to consider how people react differently to a disaster that threatens both humans and their beloved pets.

After speaking with her daughter, Jane, mother and child appeared to be at odds. While Marion wouldn’t hesitate to rescue or wait behind for her miniature dachsund or one-year-old tabby cat, Jane asked the inevitable, crucial question: “Isn’t it more important to save people?”

What followed was a heartwarming ode to the bond between human and beast, homing in on what makes those ties so strong in the comfort of one’s home. If you have a cat or dog — or both — that you love, surely you can relate.

Here were our other most popular reads for the first week of September:

What: One family’s idea of a good time. Dad was the founder and former President of Maxim Health Care (owned by Steve Bisciotti and Jim Davis), and this was the end of the rainbow for his five-boy family when it was built in 2009. Indoor basketball/soccer/lacrosse court? Fine. Heated pool with waterfall? Sure. Horses, with live-in jockey to take care of them? Yup. “Can we stock the fishpond, Dad?” “A-Okay.”  Plus,  every child’s dream:  a laundry chute. Parents wanted a place where the kids could hang out, and of course they do, because anything a bunch of guys could want is right here. There is a spirit of fun in this house that’s hard to resist. Traditional in looks, with high-quality construction throughout, it’s full of high-end finishes and upgrades. A double height, vaulted ceiling family room (there are several family rooms), a custom gourmet kitchen with granite counters, Wolff ranges and Sub-Zero fridges, a fitness room that looks like a college facility – if you can imagine it, it’s here. There’s a nice house tour, complete with horses, on the listing website. More than most new luxury homes, this one has a mission that it lives up to – a party house: comfortable, informal, and designed for Fun.
