Today on DelmarvaLife –
A Delaware woman who experienced the horrors of World War II has written a memoir. In Courage Through Grace, Jennie Liston depicts events in war-torn Germany seen through the eyes of a child, running from bombs and the horrors of WWII, adjusting to a new life as an immigrant in America, and facing the struggles and challenges of her childhood and adolescence. Jennie exposes the reality of her relationships, the agony of separation from a spouse fighting in Vietnam, and the difficulties of dealing with a returning stranger who has seen death all around him. Jennie reveals to Jimmy and Lisa what it was like to put her story into words, and what inspired her to write the book.
It was just about three months ago when we learned that the City of Salisbury would appoint its first Poet Laureate. We welcome Salisbury’s first Poet Laureate, Nancy Mitchell to Historic Studio D. Nancy talks about her accomplishments as an internationally own poet, and what her responsibilities will be with her new two-year assignment. Nancy also recites one of her published poems on the Mid South Audio Stage.
In a perfect world, our kitchen appliances would last forever and never go out of style. Unfortunately, we have to eventually replace, and sometimes upgrade, the workhorses we rely upon every day of the year. For the past seven-decades, many homeowners h ave counted on Shore Appliance Connection in Salisbury. Now, there’s a second location in Ocean View. We sent WBOC’s Heidi Werosta to Shore Appliance Connection in Ocean View to see what they have to offer when it comes to providing that brand new appliance in your home.
Wolfgang the Beagle once topped the scales at 89 pounds. That’s double what he should be. He’s now living in foster care, thanks to an Arizona Beagle Rescue. Wolfgang is on a diet and exercise plan, and even has a Facebook, so fans can track his progress. Wolfgang is just one example of how humans can step up to help a homeless pet. We have plenty of homeless pets in shelters on Delmarva who need you to step up. We’ll show you a few in today’s Pet Connect.
