Flowers for Drew: Remembering the life of an editor, writer and friend - Delaware State News - Delaware State News
Drew took what had become a cliched annual feature on a sandcastle contest and made it clever. The headline was, “The Rodins of Rehoboth.”
A sand carver’s secret, Drew learned, was staking out a good spot. “The early bird gets the berm,” he wrote.
University of Delaware journalism professor Dennis Jackson recognized Drew’s talent early on and recommended him to the State News in 1992 when we had an opening for a sportswriter.
Not long after, we moved Drew to a role as a news editor for our sister paper, The Daily Whale, in his hometown of Lewes. It was there that Drew really started to shine, putting his knowledge and appreciation of the area into play.
He appreciated the Sussex County landscape as much as its unique culture.
Perhaps that made it easy for him to interview 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.“

Column: My grandmother's rose blooms each Easter - Valley News
Mayflower bill of lading, as early as 1621, the pilgrims planted roses at Plymouth Plantation. Among these were “reds, whites and damasks,” as John Carver, their first governor, wrote in his journal. Some of these were found in the wild, others possibly brought as slips, cuttings and even roots from England. Wyck, a historic house in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, has what some consider to be “the oldest rose garden in original plan in America,” as its website describes it. Jane Bowne Haines, who lived at Wyck, introduced roses to the garden in 1824. The “Bella Donna” and “Beautiful Woman” roses were among those passed on through generations.Later immigrants who flooded into our country brought the roses they treasured along with them.Our rose started here. The patriarch of my family, Papou, came from Greece around 1910 as a boy with nothing — certainly not a flower. For work, he shined... Nov 28, 2018
The flowers man: Lakeline Oaks resident surprises ladies with flowers every week - Hillcountrynews
By NICK BROTHERS, HCN Managing Editor
For 59 years, four months, two weeks, 17 hours and 15 minutes, Andy Carver made it a point to buy and surprise his wife Regina with flowers every Friday whenever he was stateside from his career in the military. They weren't always roses-occasionally carnations-but she always loved them. About a year ago, Carver and his wife moved in to Lakeline Oaks in Cedar Park. The following day, after the movers moved in their furniture, she suffered a massive stroke and passed away.
For three or four months, Carver grieved internally, and did his best to keep appearances that he was ok.
"There was something missing, really missing," Carver said. "I couldn't think of what it was."
Eventually, Carver got to know his new neighbors, one of whom was infirm. He bought a dozen roses and gave them to them. The smiles he received in return struck him like an epiphany.
"I thought to myself, that's the one thing I was missing," he said. "I love seeing people smile."
Since July of last year, 84-year-old Carver has made it his mission to buy a bouquet of flowers each week an... May 24, 2018
The Outside Story: Mountain Laurel Is Special, In Bloom or Not
He explained that deer typically eat laurel when they're short of other food. "In my experience, they like the cultivars best."Wood carvers also appreciate the plant. It is the favored wood of Dan Dustin, a New Hampshire spoon carver. He often goes out with a pack basket in search of a "spoony" laurel - an old one with branches as thick as his arm. Mountain laurel also has the name spoonwood, and legend has it that Native Americans carved it for this purpose."It's lovely carving wood," Dustin says. "It's very stable, meaning it doesn't like to crack as much as some other woods. That makes for easier carving, because it can be carved green. It's white in color, strong and light and without any taste or perfume." He estimates that he's carved 20,000 spoons out of mountain laurel, and plenty from the wood of its relative, blueberry. Mountain laurel is lovely wherever you find it, but some of the larger stands are worth a planned visit. Timing of the bloom is affected by elevation and latitude, as well as spring temperatures: an unusually warm, sunny spring moves the flowering season earlier by one to two weeks. There are very large specimens at The Fells, also known as the Hay estate, on the banks of Lake Sunapee. New Hampshire's Russell-Abbott State Forest, Pisgah State Park, and Wontastaket State Forest have thick stands, as does Vermont's Black Mountain Natural Area. Maine's largest stand is in the Bijhouwer Forest in Phippsburg. Spectacular collections are found at Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, Mass.Laurie D. Morrissey is a writer in Hopkinton, N.H.
