What’s Happening Today – July 6, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We’re tackling a topic that always generates a lot of buzz on Delmarva – what animals are really in the waters off Delmarva’s coast? Sean gets the answers from Suzanne Thurman, the executive director of the Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute (MERR). From sharks to whales, even sea turtles, Suzanne addresses a few of Sean’s most pressing questions.
WBOC Meteorologist Mike Lichniak joins us on the couches to talk weather. Yes, it’s summer, it’s supposed to be hot, but what’s up with all of this humidity? We get some insight from Mike. He’ll also talk about the many storms and the abundance of rain we’ve recently seen on Delmarva. He’s addressing some of your topics, too. We ask him his thoughts on the one comment he hears all the time — He has the only job in the world where he gets paid to be wrong. Yeah, we’re going there.
We talk about cancer a lot on DelmarvaLife – not just signs and symptoms, or how to prevent the disease, but the emotional toll it can take on patients and their family and friends. Today, we talk about an effort to bring warmth, comfort, and kind and loving words to those fighting cancer. It’s called the “Subaru Loves to Care” program. Gateway Subaru and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society have teamed up to deliver more than 60 blankets to cancer patients at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Each blanket comes with a message of hope written by customers.
Another group on Delmarva is working to fight the hunger problem on Delmarva. The DNREC-sponsored “Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger” program distributes donated venison to charitable organizations and food pantries throughout the state.
It’s days like these that we are extra thankful for our air conditioners and the men and women who work tirelessly to keep them running. Sean gets a new appreciation for this line of work, when he spends “A Day in the Life” of a commercial HVAC technician. The folks at Real Property Maintenance are kind enough to show Sean the ropes of what it takes to get the job done. Let’s see if Sean can “take the heat.”
Hope you enjoy the show!
