Forever Clean owner Raylene Ewing, who's worked in the cleaning industry for 16 years, still channels her degrees in criminal justice and psychology to make savvy business decisions. She hires fully bonded and insured housekeepers to scour homes from top to bottom, sending the same employees on repeat visits to increase familiarity with the home. By heeding common complaints about other companies, she has also developed a reliable system for leaving each room spotless, which includes hand washing all the hard floors instead of simply lighting them on fire.
The staff members can purge private residences, apartments, and offices of grime. They strive to accommodate homeowners by providing detailed estimates over the phone, even after traditional business hours, and do not charge additional fees for homes with pets.
Maybe before the mailman slid the January 2014 issue of Hudson Valley magazine into the mailbox he looked at the cover. If he did, he’d have seen a stack of pancakes highlighting the magazine's breakfast feature. Maybe he raised his eyebrows—intrigued—and checked around to see if he was being watched as he flipped to the story to explore.
For the last 40 years, each issue of Hudson Valley magazine has delved into the area’s newest restaurants, shops, entertainment, and travel destinations. The editorial staff prides itself on digging deep to find the most compelling content and creating polished, sophisticated copy on local trends and issues. Some months, articles might include a Best Of list to give readers a quick taste-making guide to the hottest spots. Other months, it might include a page-turning profile of a local actor, chef, architect, artist, or Sasquatch.
Situated on the west end of Trolley Square, The Delaware Center of Horticulture unfurls as a fragrant oasis for plant life amid the urban bustle of Wilmington. The colorful gardens frame the DCH depression-era main building, which houses an art gallery and regular workshops for local green thumbs. Since 1977, the cooperative efforts of philanthropic earthworms and volunteers have driven the nonprofit organization's plethora of public works and outreach efforts designed to enrich the existence of humans through the power of plant life. One such initiative, the Parks and Public Spaces program, has introduced rich greenery to pavement-laden private and public urban landscapes throughout the state.

Drawing on his culinary background working in East Coast bistros and stately hotel kitchens, Mile High Steak & Seafood’s Executive Chef David Robinson crafts a rotating menu of upscale steakhouse cuisine. Robinson, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, refuses to cut corners with his ingredients, going so far as to fly in fresh seafood and grass skirts overnight from the Honolulu Fish Company. He only chooses aged certified Angus beef for his steak-centric entrees, and he revs up traditional sandwiches and appetizers on the bar menu with high-end items such as shaved prime rib, artisan cheeses, and lobster. These gourmet bites pair palatably one of the bar’s signature cocktails or glasses of wine.
Even in his down time, Robinson keeps his culinary skills sharp, coordinating charity events for the Chester County SPCA and the Brandywine Hospital Strawberry Festival. But even with his busy schedule and impressive resumé, he’s still thankful for landing his “dream job” at Mile High Steak & Seafood.
