• There's A Car Under All That Dust! by Helen Chappell
    So, I was in this support group meeting for people who love food too much the other day, and one of the members had just come back from a trip to the Thunderbird Museum down south. He’s a car enthusiast, and this trip was a very big deal for him. Somehow or another, he ended up describing my ’87 Corolla, gently aging in the parking lot. “Oh,” sez he, “You’re the dirty white car with the semi-flat tires and the Who Died and Made You Elvis bumper sticker?”.
  • Anne Stinson - One of a Kind by Kathi Ferguson

    It was not until I was asked to write this story that I discovered Anne Stinson was my neighbor. Suddenly, it made sense that the eye-catching garden I had long been admiring from across the street just happened to belong to the author of the Star Democrat’s weekly column, Nature Notes. A brief encounter with Anne on the way to the mailbox one afternoon offered the perfect opportunity to introduce myself and compliment her on her excellent taste in curb appeal.

  • The Oyster Runner by Gary D. Crawford

    In the old days, the oystering business was huge and lucrative. By the “old days,” I mean the thirty years after the Civil War, a period before the grandfathers of our oldest living watermen. It was a rough time on the Chesapeake. Steam power was changing everything.

  • Celebrate the Tomato by Pamela Meredith-Doyle

    Fresh tomatoes take center stage in summer recipes. While it is the time of year to bemoan the oppressive heat, we would do well to remember the refreshing things about summer, including the lovely luscious tomatoes available to us now. In a few months we’ll all have to be content with tomatoes that may look good, but are only a shadow of their fresh summer counterparts in terms of taste.

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.
