With a Picture Worth a Thousand Words, We’ve Got Several Thousand With Pics of Delaware Goings-On. The 11/18/15 Edition

Got a new fish award, the new Acme store and a surprise from the Sussex GOP.

The New Acme


So I went to the new Acme down where SuperFresh used to be off of Route 1.

I thought it kind of pricey but it’s like any other store, you got to shop the deals.

I did buy a hot lunch, a Styrofoam container with two little drumsticks and a couple big scoops of macaroni and cheese. I don’t know what I was thinking because the per pound price of the hot food bar is $7.99!

My little lunch was OVER TEN DOLLARS!

They offered to take it back because no way, nowhere, are two little drum sticks and a cup and a half of mac and cheese worth ten dollars….nowhere.

Donated Defibrillator to Police

Hmmmmm. Looks like a good way to get free medical equipment.

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge One in Wilmington received a donated defibrillator in honor an officer who helped save a fellow officer’s life with the machine.

During the recent Fraternal Order of Police National Conference in Pittsburgh, Corporal Dennis Leahy of the Wilmington Police Department came to the aid of a retired police officer from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania who was suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. Leahy preformed CPR and administered a shock from an on-site defibrillator.

Defibrillator manufacture Heartstine heard about the incident and donated a system to Leahy. The machine will be stationed at the police lodge in Wilmington, which frequently hosts law enforcement meetings.

Linda Creasy, Sec. for the Sussex county GOP and may he rest in peace Fred Thompson.

I hear she’s got another great pic of her and Fox’s Bret Baer.


New Angler award?

A 35-year-old Delaware state fishing record may finally be broken.

According to Lewes Harbor Marina, a 24.8 pound bluefish was caught by Baltimore Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgeon Dr. Luis Mispireta while fishing for sea bass on Monday.

Dr. Mispireta was reportedly reeling in a sea bass aboard the charter boat Katydid when the big bluefish snapped up his catch. The fish was finally reeled in after a “hectic” fight. The catch was verified by a DNREC officer, measuring 43-inches…


I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.
Please feel free to email me at patfish1@aol.com if you want to send me a special comment or have any ideas or information you want to share.
NEXT : Some national tidbits and a local color post on area grocery stores. Now that we have the new Acme and everything.

    So, I guess you decided you aren’t going to tell us about your court date in the property dispute?

Got something to say? Go for it!
