It’s January — or is it?
Charles Jones, Nanticoke, who operates Jones’ Produce, was spotted on a recent warm, 64-degree Thursday, offering fresh vegetables for sale at his usual spot next to the railroad on Pennsylvania Avenue in Delmar. There were apples, local sweet potatoes, turnips, new watercress and fresh shucked oysters. Delmar citizens generally don’t see Jones until late May or June, when the English peas and first local strawberries become available. But, he said he had to take advantage of the warm weather. Could it be a sign of things to come?

Monica and Scott Shubert and their two sons spent a few days in the Poconos at Scott’s grandfather’s cabin. They met up with Scott’s father, uncle and grandfather to enjoy a “work” weekend at the cabin. Monica said they had fun but it’s nothing like home. The boys had fun playing in the snow and sledding down the mountainside.
