"Wilmington?" That was the response of most people when they heard we were writing an article about what to do in the biggest city in the second-smallest state. Many folks know it as the home of the DuPont Co., or as the dateline for the sensational murder trials of Thomas Capano, and Amy Grossberg and Brian Peterson. But if you went there, other than for commerce or litigation, it was probably for a touring Broadway show at the Playhouse, or a headliner at the historic Grand Opera House - and then you skedaddled out of town.

THE MYSTERIOUS clay bust found on the Ventnor boardwalk is of a dentist from Wilmington. Though some said the 20-pound sculpture found on the boardwalk last year looked like Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne, Luca Brasi from "The Godfather" or comedian Tim Allen, Betsy Schwartz says it's her "Pop Pop," Samuel Shames. "He definitely was the patriarch of our family," Schwartz, a Wilmington native who lives in Connecticut, told the  Daily News  on Wednesday. Police in Ventnor found the sculpture on the boardwalk near Lafayette Avenue in November and assumed it had been stolen and discarded.
