Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
Dover International Speedway builder Melvin Joseph — a man who, despite having only a sixth-grade education, started his Georgetown construction business with just a dump truck and a shovel.
“They had Sussex connections, they had common ground,” said Mr. Nardone. “You can’t write about someone unless you get to know them in some way. Drew always found common ground and found a way to relate to people.
“He did that with Roy Klein, the ‘Duke of Kent.’ I think he appreciated what those people accomplished.”
Drew spotted quirky stuff and found ways to work it into his stories.
There was the story he did on mosquito control. “They had a young guy run across the marsh and then they would count the bites,” he remembered.
In 1999, he did an amazing piece on “The Dual” – what Delaware old-timers used to call U.S. 13. It was then that he met James E. Clark, the proprietor of a service station in Dover.
We found it odd that it remained opened, yet no longer had gas pumps thanks to an environmental regulation. His headline — “Running on fumes” — came naturally.
“Clarkie” was still offering service to locals, though. He would check oil and inflate tires, and sometimes he would drive his old customers to a nearby station to fill up their tanks because that’s what he always did for them.
After meeting him, Drew tucked away another idea after learning Clarkie had survived the Indian River Inlet bridge collapse in 1948. The man plunged into the icy waters and managed to swim to a bulkhead where he reached out for a tire that saved his life.
The lede of the story:
“James E. “Clarkie” Clark curls his left pinky finger toward his hand.“
“More than 50 years ago, it was the strength of that little finger that stood between life and death.“
Drew’s newspaper career took him from the Delaware State News to Delaware Today in the 1990s and then back to our newspaper. In 2005, he returned to the magazine so he could spend more quality time with his family and less time on the road and less time attached to a daily newspaper nights and weekends.
Craig Horleman, our features editor, was alongside Drew for much of his career, dating back to work at The Review at the University of Delaware. They reunited at The Daily Whale and spent many evenings playing trivia and talking shop at Grotto’s Grand Slam.
“We’d talk about the day’s events and discuss how we could make the paper better and brainstorm story ideas,” Craig said. “This turns out to be pretty common among us newspaper folks. We can never seem to turn it off.
“He had his nervous moments like any of us do from time to time but it was out of an abundance of care to get the job done. He knew when to make things light and knew when to take things seriously and that mix really made him what he was — a great journalist and a great friend.”
It was in the fall that I last talked with Drew.
Whenever he called, there was a jestful greeting. This time, he opened with “Why don’t you send me flowers anymore?”
It had been too long between conversations.
You can’t help but wonder what Drew’s headline for this column would have been.
“Flowers for Drew” seems right.
We’ll not forget him.

Over Easy: Flower power in the age of aggression - Press Herald
Indians for its teams.
Bob Kalish observes life from a placid place on the island of Arrowsic (motto: You’re not in Georgetown yet). You can reach him at [email protected]
Indians is a popular name for teams as part of a general educational program, even if there wasn’t a Native American within 100 miles of the stadium scoreboard. In professional baseball alone there are the Cleveland Indians, the Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs, not to mention the college teams.
What would it take to get to a level of sensitivity where we wouldn’t stand for our school’s Fighting Redskins any more than we would accept a team called the Maine Jews or the Minnesota Swedes. The list of names of flowers and plants provides plenty of possibilities. And as an extra benefit, the level of violence in our society alone may begin to diminish. It’s just plain difficult to muster up hate when the object of that hate is a rhododendron.
Here is a suggestion for professional team owners, coaches, parents and spectators: When looking for a new mascot for your team, think flowers. Or plants (the Fighting Amaryllis) or cuddly animals (the Fighting Teddy Bears).
You like the sound of the Fighting Fiddleheads of Wiscasset? Or the Mt. Ararat Magnolias?
We could still enjoy our team mascots and cheerleaders, whose job it is to distract us so we don’t get bored. Instead of a man o... Jan 4, 2020

Mystery Plant: The genus Hypericum | Community News - South Strand news
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Georgetown Times features John Nelson’s Mystery Plant series each Friday. You can find the answer to today’s mystery plant in next Friday’s paper.The answer to last week’s Mystery Plant is: “Bitter melon,” Momordica charantia”Two Mystery Plants at once! These two species will serve nicely for a consideration of what we call a “genus.”The modern concept of the genus as a taxonomic category began coming into play amongst botanists in the late 17th Century. Briefly, a genus was recognized (and still is) as a convenient way to group closely related species. The dictionary definition of this word suggests “group” or “kind,” generally involving the notion of close relationships among its constituent members. Considered from the other perspective of grouping, a number of different but related genera (“genera” is the plural of “genus”…don’t ever say “genuses!”) are placed in a family. For instance, there are several species of sandspurs, and they all belong to the genus Cenchrus. Sandspurs are... Jul 5, 2019
Cut Flowers Caucus blooms on Capitol Hill - Washington Examiner
Brewers Caucus, the Term Limits Caucus, the Wrestling Caucus, and the Zoo and Aquarium Caucus.
"I'd never heard of the Cut Flowers Caucus," Georgetown University government professor Michele Swers told the Washington Examiner with a laugh.
The organizations serve different purposes, depending on the topic, she explained.
"Caucuses allow members to take various public positions and advertise that an issue is important to them, but their profile obviously depends on what group you're talking about," Swers said. "We've seen how the House Freedom Caucus has attracted enough members to shift policy to the right, whereas being a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus makes them look bipartisan and provides them with the opportunity to tell their constituents they are interested in ensuring Washington works."
The organizations additionally reflect broader trends, the professor added, citing the new Servicewomen and Women Veterans Caucus created this year following the election of a host of female lawmakers.
George Mason University political science associate professor Jennifer Victor predicted more groups would form in the future.
"Caucuses are growing; there are more of them every year. The growth is driven in part by outside industries, like flower growers," Victor said. "Often caucuses don't take up particular bills and opt not to push for legislation because they value bipartisan relationships and the informational benefits of the group over controversial policy."
