Flying high in Delaware

While most college graduates face a daunting job market after graduation, there’s one Delaware industry where openings could soon far outnumber qualified workers: aviation.

First Person: John Sell

As the school year wraps up in Delaware, we pay one more tribute to the teachers who are an inspiration to many. Over the last 4 years on First, we’ve taken the time to profile the Delaware Teacher of the Year. John Sell holds that title for 2013. He’s currently in his 23rd year inside the classroom. Sussex Vo-Tech in Georgetown is his base of operations and we are happy to present this profile as our First Person this week.

Toddlers take the wheel

Kids love to explore in their play. For kids who can’t crawl or walk, some adaptations are necessary. That was the challenge for a University of Delaware researcher. His inspiration came from Toys R Us.

Delaware Culinary Trail

Twenty-four restaurants are considered the most iconic in the state. Partnering with Delaware Today magazine, Delaware Tourism compiled the tasty list. See if your favorite is a stop on Delaware’s new culinary trail.

First Experience: The King of the cone

Let’s keep the food exploration theme going on First. For 40 years, King’s Ice Cream has been making homemade ice cream in the historic town of Milton, and more recently Lewes. Generations have enjoyed the homade taste of their cold creations. It is still family owned, and there are many who will say it is the best ice cream around. You be the judge by watching our First Experience.
