Middletown Life Fall 2016 edition

Sep 14, 2016 08:28AM ● By J. Chambless


Our cover story focuses on Amanda Nicole DeBus, Miss Delaware 2016, who discusses her path to the pageant, her work with children who have special needs, her focus on allergy awareness, and her plans for the future. We profile Kevin and Tina Conley, who have created the Warriors Helping Warriors organization to help area veterans cope with their injuries and find a productive pathway after military service. We also visit the Springmill community in Middletown, which held a tribute to the 50 residents who served during the Vietnam era and the 20 who served during the Korean War era. We talk to author Faye Green, who is enjoying a flourishing publishing career with four novels inspired by her rich life experiences. We also meet sculptor Richard Bailey, an artist anchored by his faith whose carvings of animals and fish are favorites of collectors near and far. We take to the skies with the members of the Delaware Radio Control Club, who regularly fly scale aircraft at their flying field in Lums Pond State Park. The revitalization of the community along East Lake Street area in Middletown is the focus of an interview with Kevin Smith, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County. We also visit the HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, where cutting-edge technology is helping injured residents get back on course. We hope you enjoy the Fall edition of Middletown Life, and that you learn something about the place we call home.
