Artists age 50 and older who wish to sell their wares now have an alternative to the weekend art festivals: They can advertise their paintings, sculptures, jewelry and other goods on a Web site called

The site was created by two federal agencies and Experience Works, a national, nonprofit organization that offers training, employment and community service opportunities for older workers.

Artists must pay a onetime setup fee plus a transaction fee for each item sold. Shoppers can select artists by name or region/state. They also can search by type of item. Pictures of the artwork are posted with written descriptions and instructions on how to make a purchase.


State wildlife park undergoes major upgrade

HOMOSASSA SPRINGS -- In the months and years ahead, the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will undergo a series of projects aimed at enhancing visitor appeal and helping improve the environmental health and well being of the park's inhabitants.

Already under way: the park's Phase 2 expansion, which calls for replacement of about 800 feet of existing limerock trails with wooden boardwalks. When finished this summer, the trail will give visitors up-close access to new exhibits, including an expanded Western cougar habitat and a new, larger reptile house.

Also slated for construction: facilities to house the park's newly acquired black bear cubs and an aviary expansion.
