Traffic Lights And Liquor Stores

Howard down in Delmar pointed out that on December 11, 1925, the town of Laurel got a new traffic light. I don’t know if it was the first, but he points out that our love affair with traffic lights was, at least, present 82 years ago.

Howard down in Delmar has also expressed on this blog:

Could it be the town whose claim to fame is it has the most traffic lights per capita in the state of Delaware will become the town with the most liquor stores per capita?

I’ve written before about Laurel Liquors, our new neighborhood package store (now there’s an old school term for ya!). My ears have been bent regarding the change in the local environment, including reports of seeing someone releaving themselves next to Laurel Liquors and a 40 ounce bottle put through the window of a truck parked on the street behind the store. It’s a beautiful day.

News has also came to me regarding Towne Liquors, the package store by Laureltowne. A new building will be errected where the old warehouse once was, and it will be Towne Liquors new home. This new building will give them more floor space, making it better suited to battle the competition in the town with the most traffic lights and liquor stores per capita.

Howard might be a wise old man, but I’d better not go there. 🙂
