Middletown Life Spring/Summer 2016

● By Steven Hoffman
For the past several years, in each issue, we have undertaken the task of writing a continuing story about a town, its people and its places. Our aspirations are really quite simple: that if anyone wishes to know the true heart of Middletown – as well as its neighboring communities – that they will be directed here, to this magazine, to the continuing narrative. The 2016 Spring-Summer edition of Middletown Life is certainly no exception. Writer John Chambless profiles artist Diane Laird, whose detailed renderings of Middletown capture the history, flavor of vibrancy of the town. Writer Richard L. Gaw profiles Delaware Wild Lands, which last November was given the reins to protect and manage the 1,250-acre Taylor Bridge Roberts Farm in Odessa. Writer Lisa Fieldman profiles Alice DeVore, whose Fingertip Fantasies Dollhouses and Miniatures in nearby Clayton recalls a long-lost Victorian era. Writer Steve Hoffman sits down with Nick Manerchia, the new executive director of Middletown Main Street, who shares his continuing vision and goals. Welcome to the 2016 Spring-Summer edition of Middletown Life. We hope you enjoy the continuing narrative of your town.
