What’s Happening Today – September 14, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
It’s no secret that school is looking quite different this year. Many students are now taking on the challenge of virtual learning at home. But, what about the students who don’t have a home? We talk with Executive Director of The Christian Shelter in Salisbury, Anthony Dickerson, about an effort to build a computer lab to ensure no child is left behind during the pandemic.
Throughout these past 6 months, how many times have you gotten frustrated with technology? Have you thought about maybe throwing your computer against a wall? Have you said to yourself? That’s it! I’m done with technology. And perhaps, even more now that school is started, you’re feeling overwhelmed. Well, first things first, you’re not alone. Second, Salisbury’s Secretary of Kindness, Grace Foxwell Murdock is here to help us navigate this journey.
The cool, crisp air, the pumpkins, apple cider – it all means one thing: fall is coming. Fall in Worcester County means fun. 102-5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus visited our friends at the Worcester County Department of Recreation and Parks to get a peek at some of the programs your family can get involved in this fall.
We’re talking about another type of fall – one that can be quite dangerous. While, the pandemic has many of us staying home, limiting unnecessary trips, having an accident or a trip that leads to a fall or worse, can be devastating. Especially since you’re looking at several weeks of physical therapy to recover. The thought of heading out while injured, can leave many of us feeling uneasy. Lisa learns about physical therapy in the time of COVID.

A new season of “Wheel of Fortune” kicks off at 7 o’clock tonight on WRDE. You’ve probably guessed it – there will be plenty of social distancing and precautions to keep guests and contestants safe from COVID. But, we’re taking it back to the days before COVID…8 years ago when the “Wheel of Fortune” team invited DelmarvaLife for a behind-the-scenes look at the show, including a chat with Vanna White inside her dressing room. It’s today’s, “Monday Memory.”

What to Do

Meet Samuel: a Whitehaven dog who lost its’ human in the spring. Samuel’s owner was tragically killed in a car accident. With no one else to care for Samuel, neighbors took turns walking him with one neighbor caring for him full time. 11-year-old Samuel recently underwent surgery for severe glaucoma. His eye was ultimately removed. Jan Elmy, who is taking care of Samuel, is hoping some kind-hearted friends, neighbors and strangers can help pay for the almost 2-thousand dollar surgery. Donations to help cover the cost of surgery for Samuel may be sent to Jan Elmy at 2723 Church St., Whitehaven, Md. 21856. Please make a notation on the check that it is for “Samuel the Spaniel.” Elmy may also be contacted at 443-499-2069.
