What’s Happening Today – September 9, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
None of your dreams for your son or daughter includes a battle with addiction. But, it happens. It did to Jackie Ball’s son. She knows what it’s like to watch a loved one struggle and feel powerless to help. That’s what led Jackie, and another local mother to start the Worcester County Warriors against Opiate addiction. Their goal? To provide resources, support, and education to those in the throes of addiction and their loved ones. Katie learns more about the organization in this weeks, “Wellness Wednesday.”
We’re about a week into the new “TidalHealth.” The signs are up across Delmarva as the TidalHealth team puts the finishing touches on the re-branding of our hospital systems. We talk with Dr. Harry Anthony, Family Medicine Practitioner about what a stronger network of care means.
Keeping your house warm or cool is not a “one-size-fits-all” effort. Knowing what kind of HVAC unit you need to keep you and your family comfortable, without wasting money, takes some knowledge on what you do have or may not have. We turn to the expert, Managing Partner of A&A Companies, Mindy Townsend, for answers.
Let’s take a moment to discuss how wonderful Delmarva is. Now, take a moment to think about the people that work to make Delmarva great. Maybe, you’re thinking of one specific person. Good. Get ready to celebrate them and it’s all thanks to the “Who Powers You?” Campaign. We talk with Lauren Irby, Manager of Public Relations and Community Outreach with Delaware Electric Cooperative, about who the ideal candidate is and how to nominate someone.
In this connected society, it’s easy to learn something new. But, before the information age, we counted on books and word of mouth stories, passed down from generation and generation. We talk with State Folklorist with The Maryland State Arts Council, Chad Buterbaugh, about Heritage Awards.
Real-life superheros in Sussex County…a man in his sixties went into cardiac arrest in the ocean, the Rehoboth Beach Patrol ran to his side to help. They pulled him to shore, began C-P-R and were able to get a pulse before medics arrived on scene. We talk with Captain of the Rehoboth Beach Patrol, Kent Buckson, about the amazing rescue.
