  • Choosing a career with a future

    Many teens understandably struggle with choosing a career. Even once a decision has been made, it can be hard to figure out how best to begin that career.

    The middle of a pandemic is not a great time to launch a new place to eat. Just ask Xavier Teixido.

  • 🔒 55+ communities grow rapidly in Delaware

    If a local Rip Van Winkle woke up today in Middletown, he might find that, while he was snoozing, his farm had been turned into a residential community with a clubhouse and a pickleball court.

    NEW CASTLE – President Joe Biden’s well-documented history of commuting to and from work in Washington – recently upgraded from Amtrak to Air Force One – has focused a bright spotlight on Wilmington-New Castle Airport (ILG), yet the facility’s long-term outlook remains quite murky.
