Click magazine debuts its first issue dedicated to those leading individu-als whose multiple accomplishments make our region of the Mid-South a great place to call home. These exemplary citizens are not only recog-nized for their contributions to commerce and the community, but also for their outstanding leadership and character while holding their positions of responsibility.
The list, found on page 64, was compiled through research, resident nomi-nations and a series of in-depth interviews. While we profess this list is by no means all-encompassing, we did our best to include those we felt to be qualified.
Also in this issue is a look at back-to-school fashion to honor those ventur-ing into a new school year. For some reason, Ive always found buying school supplies enjoyable. (Thats not to be confused with saying I loved the idea of going back to school.) In the movie, Youve Got Mail, Tom Hanks character tells Meg Ryans character, Kathleen Kelly: Dont you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. Alas, Im not Meg Ryan and its not fall, but it nevertheless re-minds me of going back to school.
Be sure to read Lindsee Gentrys article Cruisin Kitchens, where she profiles several of the food truck entrepreneurs stepping up this culinary trend. Trucks serving pizza or tacos have fed downtowners for a while now; however the quality, variety and number of trucks have never been greater.
And as this issue goes to print, our staff is already hard at work preparing for our September issue. Our new website is now online. To see what we have coming up next month, visit us at myclickmag.com.

Michael Hensley Mike Marino Our cover this month was shot by photographer Michael Hensley. The photographer/attorney/pizza franchiser grew up around his fathers constant art projects which helped instill a deep appreciation for all forms of art. That passion stuck and today he is the owner of Digital Muse Media, a company specializing in photography, graphic design, campaign marketing, web design, and video. Hensley holds a degree in Architectural Engineering from University of Southern Miss as well as a law degree from the University of Mississippi. Hensley continues to practice law in his hometown of Hernando.
Mike Marino is a freelance magazine columnist, former managing editor of two Northwest newspapers and the past host of a rock and roll morning radio in San Francisco. Since leaving home at age 15, he has lived as a beach bum in Hawaii, on the streets in Haight Ashbury, Colorado and amidst the puffins of Bar Harbor, Maine where chowdah is king! In his spare time he is carving hiking sticks and creates nautical art from driftwood that embody the nautical spirit of the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean. Marino is the author of four books.Read his story Take A Hike on page #.
Photographs from our feature story Hog and Hominy as well as At Home With were shot by frequent contributing photographer Terry Sweeney. With a career that spans over twenty years in the Mid-South, Sweeneys areas of expertise include work for nearly all regional publications as well as commercial, advertising and architectural photography.
