Oriental

    

News from the waterfront town of Oriental made national headlines when a Walmart Express closed its doors last week.  Reports focused on how the closure of chain stores can impact the economy of small towns.  The store closing came months after the longtime local grocer “Town n’ Country” was shuttered.  That leaves the town of 900 without a local grocery store or pharmacy. 

We go to the set of a 1940's radio station - with radio actors, sound effects and a live studio audience. It's Oriental's production of "The Big Guns: Who's Little Lilly is She?"

This week on the Down East Journal, we go to the set of a 1940's radio station with radio actors, sound effects, and a live studio audience.  It's Oriental's production of "The Big Guns: Who's Little Lilly is She?"  And, we talk to an astronomy expert about what to look for in the autumn night sky.
