• Technology is Trying to Kill Me! by Helen Chappell
    Well, I have a choice. I can sit here and bang my head against the computer screen and cry, or I can write to you, my hapless readers, about how once again technology has stumped, indeed stomped on me.
    I thought I would finally join the 21st century and get a smart phone. My previous phone wasn’t a brick, but it was just one step up. It was one of those flip phones that were ever so trendy about 15 years ago.
  • Naval History and Tragedy over the Chesapeake by Dick Cooper

    By most measures of the times, the 10 a.m. flight from Aviation Camp Annapolis across the Chesapeake to the Eastern Shore and back on June 20, 1913 was to have been a fairly routine event. After all, the young Navy “Bird Men” were not expecting to set any new world records for speed, endurance or altitude that day. They were just experimenting with the new Wright B-2 biplane that had been retrofitted with pontoons to make it an “aero-hydroplane.”

  • The Racing R.O.M.E.O.s Still Getting Their Kicks! by Cliff James

    It seems the more things change the more they remain the same, for here I am standing next to Dave “Torque Wrench” Torelli ~ yes, the very same. Bathed in bright rays as Maryland’s spring sun washes over us on the expansive lawn of the Easton Elks Club, we’re enjoying the sights and sounds of hundreds of cars entered into the 30th annual Chesapeake Classic Car Club show. “I tricked her out a little with ram air induction, low back pressure exhaust and I had the computer chip flashed,” he tells me.

  • Leila and Lessons of Love by Susan Fuller

    They say it takes a village to raise a child and the same thing can surely be said about raising a service dog, particularly one trained to help an autistic child. Last week we celebrated with that village.
    Leila is the second dog my daughter Winnie has raised for Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Her first dog, Henna, was a happy-go-lucky free-spirited bundle of energy that literally bounded into a room.

Tidewater Times was established in 1952 as a specialized monthly magazine which would appeal to the tourist, the prospective land buyer, and others for whom the Eastern Shore has a special allure. It was created to be small enough to fit into a woman's purse or a man's coat pocket. Today it has blossomed as a vital symbol of our thriving community.
