Meredith Newman and Patricia Talorico Delaware News Journal Published 7:47 p.m. UTC Aug 21, 2018 Acme Market, Brew HaHa! and La Tolteca are among the best-known food and drink names in Delaware. What's not generally known because a public state database of inspections hasn't worked since May 2017 is that sites belonging to them were temporarily closed by the state health department this year due to what it called imminent health hazards.

School moves from Harris Street to space inside Juneau-Douglas High School Searching through folders in storage rooms at the Juneau Community Charter School, Principal Caron Smith found documents dating back 10 years about the school looking to relocate.

Linda Lamb didn’t have any options when she arrived in Goochland County.She had moved to the rural county from Richmond, where she had worked at Walmart for four years. But the only shifts available to her after the move were at night, and neither she nor her husband felt comfortable with that.So without a job and without health insurance, she turned to the only option available: Goochland Cares, formerly known as Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services.Eight years ago, when Lamb first started seeking care at the health clinic, the organization was spread between multiple locations down a 2-mile stretch of River Road, with the free clinic in a county building, patients getting treated in a back hallway, and clients maneuvering stairs and narrow hallways to access services.But in mid-January, the organization moved into a new, 20,000-square-foot building that was the result of a $7.1 million capital campaign. That money also created a $1.5 million endowment for the group, and … [Read more...] about Sporting a new name, Goochland Cares moves into new space
