What’s Happening Today – July 3, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
On today’s show we talk about loss, but we are also talking about finding joy again after loss. That’s what happened to Jennifer Cooper Steele of Smyrna. Widowed at the age of 34, she nearly lost all hope. Find out how she managed to overcome one of the most difficult tragedies anyone can face and is not hoping to help others with her book “One Step at a Time.”
Dr. Creston Long from the Nabb Research Center at Salisbury University talks about an effort to digitize old photos from the 1940s through the 1970s that show Delmarva’s thriving baseball leagues. The center will be scanning any old pictures or memorabilia at the Shorebirds v. Hagerstown Suns game Saturday, July 6th from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
An invasive species known for destroy grapes, peaches, timber, and other commercial crops has been confirmed in New Castle County. The Spotted Lanternfly isn’t native to North America but was found in Pennsylvania in 2014. People started finding it in Delaware last year. DelmarvaLife’s Katie Zarrilli spoke with Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey Coordinator Stephen Hauss for the Delaware Department of Agriculture about why this insect is so detrimental and how you can help to not let it spread any further.
We’ll all have our eyes to the sky Thursday night as fireworks displays are scheduled throughout Delmarva. Jimmy heads outside to get a hands-on demonstration from Deputy Fire Marshal Ryan Whittington with the Ocean City Fire Company to see why you should let the professionals handle the fireworks.
