Letter from the Editor:

Newark’s new Chief of Police was born to serve, and Newark Life is very pleased to present a profile of Mark Farrall in this edition. Farrall was tapped as the city’s new top cop earlier this year, and he brings extensive law enforcement experience to his new role with the police department, and we talked to him about some of his plans.

Major updates are underway at Delaware Park. Writer Ken Mammarella provides details about Delaware Park’s $10 million investment that includes extensive redecorating from ceiling to the floor and a new game layout that will give players more room.

Greg Mamula has spent the last two decades in collegiate coaching, and now he is bringing that knowledge to his newest role as the head baseball coach at the University of Delaware. Writer Richard L. Gaw talked to Mamula about his love for the game, which extends back into his childhood.

We also highlight the The Delaware Dirt Destroyers, a group of individuals who use mountain biking to simultaneously build their bodies, minds and characters.

Since it opened 15 months ago, Hamilton’s on Main has earned a reputation for its eclectic menu, its ambience and its unwavering commitment to create a quality dining experience. Recently, Newark Life met with owners Jeremiah and Anthony Brooks to discuss palates, passions and their idea of one great dinner party.

In his story, “Iron, a hill and a park: The long heritage of Iron Hill, Delaware,” writer and local historian Gene Pisasale takes a look one important element of Delaware history.

This edition of Newark Life also features a story about how some students in the University of Delaware’s unusual art conservation program care for artifacts—and save history. The University of Delaware runs one of only six undergraduate art conservation programs in the United States.

We hope that you enjoy these stories. We’re already hard at work planning the next edition of Newark Life, which will arrive later in 2023.
