Salisbury Mayor Jake Day; and Salisbury’s Neighborhood Relations Manager, Kevin Lindsay talk about the program and what kind of difference they see in the students participate in it.

When you have sore or aching muscles, doesn’t it feel good to get in a hot bath, or lay on a heating pad? Heat goes a long way toward creating relief.

Heated stone therapy is used during some spa massages at About Faces Day Spa and Salon in Salisbury. Now, it’s been added to spa manicures and pedicures. We learn about the benefits.
A new campaign in Delaware is pulling in some star power to spread a life-saving message: “Use Your Melon, Drive Sober, Arrive Alive.“Nascar Driver Ross Chastain joins us to talk about his role in spreading that message and why it hits close to home for him.
