What’s Happening Today – October 22, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Rising Tide is a joint effort between Safford Automotive Group and WBOC. Just like a Rising Tide lifts all boats, we’re here to work together help those in need on Delmarva. Throughout the year, we have a different effort to collect various items for charities. This event is to help the homeless and those who may not be as fortunate in our area. We are collecting coats for the Joseph House in Salisbury as well as Casa San Francisco in Milton and the Seton Center in Princess Anne. Not only are we collecting warm wear, but we are also asking for new or gently used coats, hats, scarves, and gloves. You can drop off items this Wednesday — October 24th — from 7 to 7 at our WBOC offices in Milton and Dover, or Safford Ford Salisbury or any of Safford automotive locations on RT 13 in Salisbury. Donations will be distributed by the Joseph House of Salisbury, the Seton Center in Princess Anne and Casa San Francisco in Milton and stay right here on Delmarva to help the needs of our community.
Dropping temperatures also mean we’re getting closer to Halloween. We’re going to share with you an event called “Spooktacular.” It’s an event where kids are encouraged to come out, trick or treat, and dress up for a night they won’t forget. Crown Sports director Chris Roberts is here to tell us more about it. It will be on Friday, October 26, 2018, 5:30 PM – 8 PM at Crown Sports Center, Fruitland.

The Indian River School district is doing what it can to take the worry off parent’s plate when they send their child to school.
They’re doing it with a program called Safeability. It’s a new component to school safety initiatives that address one of its most critical populations – students with disabilities at the Howard T. Ennis School.
Chef Ross Thompson Of G Rehoboth is here making Gluten free Gnocchi!
Yield: 4 (6 oz) portions
1 pound peeled Russet potatoes
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 cup cornstarch
1 large egg
Peel and boil potatoes in enough water to cover 3 inches above potatoes. Boil until soft enough to make mashed potatoes.
Put potatoes through a ricer (also known as a Foley Food Mill). Place the food milled potatoes in a mixing bowl. Add rest of the ingredients until combined into a dough.
Put some corn starch on the table and divide the dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece like making a long rope with play dough. Cut into desired length pieces.
Portion into 6 oz portions and boil until they float. At this point, your gnocchi is ready to sauté and to be sauced.
