What’s Happening Today – July 14, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Caesar Rodney graduate, Anirudh Narayanan, beat out 320,000 competitors to earn the honor, “Best in the U.S. at Microsoft Excel.” He joins us on the couches today to talk about his new title and the upcoming world competition.
It’s been nearly five years since more than 80 arsons rattled Accomack County and the rest of Delmarva. Charlie Smith III and Tonya Bundick were arrested after being spotted leaving the scene of a house fire in Melfa. Charlie pled guilty to 68 counts of arson and after a handful of trials,. Tonya entered an Alford plea to more than 60 arsons. It was a case that to this day is shocking and Washington Post Reporter, Monica Hesse, found herself immersed in this story. So much so, that she created her own story. Monica’s book about the Accomack arsons is titled, “American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land.” Monica joins us in the studio today to talk about her research, Charlie and Tonya’s love story, and her most recent chat with Charlie.

Waterfront dining, fresh crabs that were brought to a dock just feet away, watching riverboats on the water… Sounds great doesn’t it? If you make a trip to Suicide Bridge Restaurant in Dorcester County, that lovely thought can be a reality. We took a trip to Suicide Bridge Restaurant to take in the view ourselves.
