What’s Happening Today – November 5, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Feeling a little blue as the temperatures get colder and the days get shorter? There’s a term for that: “Seasonal Affective Disorder.” But this year, that blue might feel a little darker thanks to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We talk with Behavioral Health Psychiatrist at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, Dr. Ovais Khalid about some of the signs you need to look out for.
It’s No Shave November and we know that so many scruffy smiles will benefit a great cause. We talk with Fruitland Police Chief, Brian Swafford, about how they’re getting involved in the effort.
Preservation project…complete! Back in April, we first learned about the restoration project of the Edmondson House in East New Market. We got word this week that it is finished and fabulous! We talk with Jack Saum about the purpose of the house and why the restoration project was needed.
Mom, Dad – are you sick of picking up those Halloween leftover candy wrappers from the kids? Well, good news, there’s a place to get rid of them (that isn’t your trashcan!) We talk with Gail Bruce, Director of the Laurel Public Library about “Trick or Treat Trash.”
In these days of division, it’s nice to hear stories of collaboration. Delmarva Public Media is just that. Thanks to a new partnership between Salisbury University and The University of Maryland Eastern Shore, three local radio stations will now be able to share resources and reach even more listeners across the Peninsula. Katie learns more about the effort.
