Middletown Life Spring 2018 edition

Apr 11, 2018 07:52AM ● By J. Chambless

In this issue, we look at how a $268 million referendum will create the first and only comprehensive K-12 public school campus in the nation, right here in our region. We also feature a story about students in an Advanced Placement Studio Art course at Middletown High School who will be showcasing the best of their portfolios this month. We profile Brynn Close, the current Miss Delaware Teen USA, who lives in Middletown. We talk to chef Willie Enchill about his extraordinary offerings in the Delicious Craving food truck. We also talk to Brian Clossen, who is making a name for himself by creating pizza portraits at Little Italy Pizzeria in Townsend. The subject of the Q&A is Rep. S. Quinton “Quinn” Johnson, who serves as a member of the Delaware House of Representatives for the 8th District, which includes the greater Middletown area. We also look at the Middletown Historical Society's popular escape room, which allows groups to test their minds and solve puzzles related to history. And just in time for spring, our Photo Essay explores the 3,100 acres that make up the Augustine Wildlife Area. We hope you enjoy the issue!
