Elizabeth "Tizzy" Lockman

When Elizabeth “Tizzy” Lockman takes the oath of office next week, she will officially become Sen. Lockman of Market Street (and of all Senate District 3). She's a Delaware native, a one-time filmmaker, a long-time advocate for improving Delaware education, and one of many first-time candidates taking office around the country in 2019. We chatted with Tizzy as she prepares to take the oath of office next Tuesday…

Mural at Kingswood Community Center

Kingswood Community Center has been the heart of the Riverside Community of Northeast Wilmington for over 70 years. Now, it is poised to become the heart of an even bigger movement. But just three-and-a-half years ago, prospects for Kingswood Community Center were bleak, to the point where its directors feared that they would have to shutter the institution...

Wilmington Named One Of Three Rising Tech Hubs

When companies look to open new offices, not only does location matter but so does being business friendly. Wilmington, being centralized between three major cities (New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore) makes it easy for people to travel to each city but with lower taxes on running a business, it makes sense for companies to take root here. According to ozy.com and JP Morgan and Chase, that is what makes us one of the top rising tech hubs.

Delaware Innovation Week 2018

Studio One Eleven

The warm lathering cream, the feeling of the razor-sharp blade against the back of the neck, the precise touch-ups around the ear. It’s no doubt the best part of the haircut and it’s not on the menu at most strip-mall chop shops, but it is at Studio One Eleven on Market. The Gin Experience cut, that’s the one to get. The shampoo, the eyebrow trim, the razor shave on the neck, the hot towel treatment. It’s practically a spa visit in itself, but if you’ve got time to stick around for a pedicure or a chair massage, Ginny Rodgers offers that too on Market’s only male-focused spa. Ginny talks to us about how men are easier but “stupider” (our words, not hers, but a fair assessment) about their grooming, and how she’s lasted 16 years on and near Market.
