Arround Deltaville

by T.D. Harris

It is not unusual for businesses around Deltaville to be passed from one generation to another. It is beautiful to see children carry on the tradition of their grandparents and parents, such as in the case of Carolyn Schmalenberger. Carolyn and her husband Ken have passed the baton of Norton’s Marina outside of the family. She took the baton from her father and she and Ken worked for many years to grow the business into one of the largest Hunter sales companies. Their reputation is beyond reproach along the eastern seaboard.

It was not so long ago that the Ward Brothers decided to retire to the land and passed their baton they carried from their father, Captain Johnny, onto their sons who have now passed the baton onto the next generation. When we first looked out of our windows we saw buyboats and grain boats going in and out of Jackson Creek. Now we see Jay Ward and his cousins taking their tugboats out into the bay.
