Georgetown, DE- The Delaware State Police are currently investigating a crash involving a tractor trailer and two vehicles on US113 southbound in the area of Kruger Road south of Georgetown.
The incident occurred around 10:08 a.m. this morning as a 16 year old male was operating a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado and was stopped in the cross over of US113 at Wood Branch Road. The operator was attempting to cross over US113 northbound and travel eastbound on Wood Branch Road when he failed to yield to a 2000 Lincoln Town Car that was traveling northbound on US113. The Silverado struck the rear of the Town Car, which was being operated by Mae J. Sirrell, causing it to spin out of control and into the center median before it stopped in the southbound lanes of US113. A 2012 International tractor trailer being operated by Randall J. Dreeszen, was traveling southbound in the right lane of US113 when he attempted to avoid the car in the road and applied his brakes. The tractor trailer, which was fully loaded with glass masonry jars, struck the front of the Town Car with the rear tires of the tractor portion of the rig which caused the truck to overturn and land on its side partially in the right lane and shoulder of the road.
Mae Sirrell, who was properly restrained, was trapped in the vehicle for approximately 20 minutes before being extricated by Georgetown Fire Department. She was flown to Christiana Hospital by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) where she is currently admitted in stable condition.
Randall Dreeszen, who was properly restrained, was not injured in the crash. The 16 year old male, who was uninjured, was charged with Failure to Yield the Right of Way, Inattentive Driving, and No Proof of Insurance.
Traffic in the area of US113 southbound at Kruger Road was impacted for over 4.5 hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.

Newark-Delaware State Police apprehended two Brooklyn, New York men shortly after committing an armed robbery at the Zales Jewelry Store in the Christiana Mall, yesterday afternoon.
The incident occurred on Monday, August 6, 2012 at approximately 2:17 p.m. as a male suspect later identified as Phillip A. Collier-40 of Brooklyn, NY entered the Zales Jewelry Store and approached a female employee and asked to look at engagement rings. After looking at several rings, Collier reached into his waistband, produced a semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the female employee, demanding that she put jewelry into a “tote” style bag that he also produced. Collier also ordered the three other female employees at gunpoint to assist in filling the bag with jewelry. After loading the bag with the merchandise, Collier ordered all four female employees into a bathroom/office inside of the store. Collier then fled on foot from the store and into the Macy’s store located adjacent to the Zales. After Collier fled the store, one of the Zale’s employees contacted a Christiana Mall Security Officer and advised him of the robbery and was able to provide a description of the suspect. The Christiana Mall Security dispatch centered issued a general broadcast to its officers with details of the robbery and suspect description. A second Christiana Mall Security Officer spotted a suspect matching the description exit the Macy’s store and get into a brown Ford Expedition with Georgia registration, and exit the mall onto I95. The suspect vehicle information was immediately relayed to the Delaware State Police Communications Center, and a general broadcast was issued for the suspect vehicle.
A Delaware State Trooper, working a special duty construction assignment on I95 near the Christiana Mall, observed the Ford Expedition traveling I95 northbound from the Christiana Mall and began to follow it. After being joined by several other Troopers, a vehicle stop was conducted at approximately 2:36 p.m. on I295 eastbound in the area of RT9, New Castle. The vehicle’s operator, later identified as Andre Lynch-40 of Brooklyn, NY was taken into custody without incident. Collier was found to be lying in a prone position in the rear seat of the vehicle. After being removed from the vehicle it was discovered that Collier was laying on top of a fully loaded Sig Sauer 9mm handgun, reported stolen from Virginia Beach, VA in January of 2010. The jewelry taken, valued at over $160,000, was recovered inside of the vehicle.
Collier and Lynch were arrested and charged with the above crimes, arraigned and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Center on $978,000 cash Bond each.
Troopers continue to investigate this incident. Surveillance footage of the incident is not available as the investigation continues.
Lawmakers in 41 states enacted 114 bills and 92 resolutions that dealt with immigration between Jan. 1 and June 30 this year, compared with 257 such laws enacted during the same time period last year, according to the report released on Monday.
States delayed immigration legislation in part as they waited for the Supreme Court to rule on the states' authority to enforce immigration laws, said John Watkins, a Republican state senator in Virginia who co-chairs the conference's Task Force on Immigration and the States.

Never one to let facts get in the way, the Democratic Senate majority leader offered no damning public statement regarding his views on Mr. Obama’s tax cheat czar Timothy Geithner a few years ago or good old leftist buddy Tom Daschle’s failure to pay his taxes.

In a major victory for Judicial Watch, a federal court seems to agree with our analysis of this continuing scandal.

The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn’t the economy, which is scary enough.The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.

Perez refused to answer. Four times.
The current generation of new cruise ships -- designed before the 2008 economic bust but not delivered until 2010 or later -- is just starting to feel comfortable to many of us. But a whole new generation of vessels designed after 2008 and reflecting the new economic realities is right around the corner.
These next-generation ships will start arriving as soon as April 2013, with three cruise lines introducing new models by June. These new ships are bigger than average, but not the biggest, and their facilities are somewhat more compact. But most importantly, they embody a new ethos, striving to provide the kind of cruise experience that gives passengers what they want but still keeps the cruise lines profitable.
These new cruise ships will fit more passengers into ship sizes that used to feel pretty roomy. But the new “snug fitting” designs don't necessarily mean ships will feel overly crowded. After a few design generations, the cruise lines now seem to have a handle on maximizing the efficiency of space. In an automobile analogy, we may be losing the bench seats and tail fins, but we are getting bucket seats and computer-aided entertainment centers.
Other second term “economic fairness” plans include concentrating more power with the federal government to rectify “bias” and “discrimination” in the workforce regarding salaries for “equivalent” – but not necessarily equal – jobs in the private sector.
This is in addition to the enactment of a “living wage” that would force all employers to increase the salaries of the nation’s workers to meet “basic needs” such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, health care and recreation.

Obama needs to keep every part of his base rapid and mobilized to turn out for him in the fall, and the anti-Israel left makes up a part of that base. These voters are attracted to organizations like Media Matters and others funded by the likes of George Soros. And singling out Adelson -- by painting him stereotypically as a wealthy, nefarious, shady, behind-the-scenes puppet master -- serves as a dog whistle to keep these groups engaged.

Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best its ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.

Dominant Social Theme: If we work hard, government will take care of us.
Free-Market Analysis: Social Security is gradually fading away for most Baby Boomers. What the '60s generation in both Europe and America doesn't understand is that government isn't here to help them. Modern regulatory democracy is supposed to give way to global governance. That's obviously the plan.
Social Security started out well enough, of course. The first person to receive a check was Ida May Fuller who paid Social Security taxes for three years that came to a total of $24.75. Her very first monthly check in 1940 was for $22.54. And since she lived to be 100, she collected $22,888.92.
The Roosevelt administration made a big deal out of Fuller and the benefits she received. But in reality, Social Security was just like any other big government program. It was built to fail.

But instead of flying all the way to Southern California, the president settled for a shorter trip Monday evening to the $15 million beachfront Connecticut estate of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for a $35,800-per-person fundraiser with a guest list that included screenwriter and producer Aaron Sorkin and actress Anne Hathaway, star of the new Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises.” Mr. Obama also planned a larger campaign event for about 500 people at a hotel in Stamford, Conn., where tickets start at $500 each.
The quick trip was projected to raise about $2.5 million for the president’s re-election fund and for other Democratic Party campaign war chests.
McDermott Scores 100% from MBRG
(Maryland Business for Responsive Government)
Delegate Michael McDermott (R-Dist. 38-B) was recently recognized as receiving a 100% rating from the MBRG. This marks the second consecutive year that Del. McDermott has received the highest rating as a legislator who is supporting business and a business friendly climate in Maryland.
To determine an accurate picture of the Maryland legislature's attitudes toward business, jobs, economic growth, and investment in the state, MBRG's 30-member State Advisory Council selects votes from the last regular and special General Assembly sessions that have practical or philosophical importance to the widest possible range of Maryland businesses, trade associations, and chambers of commerce. Before introducing or voting on legislation, the MBRG encourages legislators to consider the following questions:
1. Will the legislation increase or decrease the cost of doing business for companies in Maryland? If the answer is increase, will the added costs of the legislation and subsequent regulations exceed the added benefit to Maryland's residents?
2. Will the legislation and subsequent regulations be more or less stringent than, or contradictory to, federal law and regulations; or will it give Maryland a competitive advantage or disadvantage with other states?
3. Will the legislation encourage or discourage companies from adding new jobs or keeping current jobs in Maryland?
4. Will the legislation encourage or discourage individuals and businesses from investing and building?
5. Will the legislation promote or impede the competitive market by removing or imposing legal, economic and/or regulatory burdens, taxes, or costs?
6. Is there another way to solve the problem or address the issue without legislation; or is there existing legislation addressing the matter?
7. Will introducing the bill send a positive or negative message about Maryland's business climate?
Here’s how the rest of the lower shore delegation rated with business in 2011 and 2012:
Sen. Richard Colburn-R 100% 100%
Sen. James Mathias-D 45% 63%
Del. Rudy Cane-D 10% 9%
Del. Norman Conway-D 20% 20%
Del. Adelaide Eckardt-R 100% 100%
Del. Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio-R 100% 93%
Del. Michael McDermott-R 100% 100%
Del. Charles Otto-R 100% 100%

While anti-gun advocates put forth every argument under the sun for why you should not be able to own a “high capacity” magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, or that you shouldn’t be able to buy ammunition online, or that police should stop going to work until guns have been completely banned, the evidence for disarmament of law abiding citizens as a failed policy is overwhelming.
In Chicago, where guns have essentially been banned for personal defense, the murder of innocents has risen so sharply in recent months that Mayor Rahm Emanual has been left with no other option but to call on criminals to look to their morals and values to stop the carnage. Washington D.C., which bans the carrying of concealed weapons, has maintained one of the highest gun crime murder rates in the country for over three decades – since the legislation was passed in 1975. As the Washington Post notes, the disarming of local residents has been wholly ineffective noting that the “guns kept coming, and bodies kept falling.”
These localized examples of the detrimental effects of restrictive gun policies are nothing, however, when compared to what’s happened in Australia, where the government implemented a “buy back” program in 1997 that completely banned gun ownership for the general population. While Australia’s politician promised a lower crime rate once the ban was in place, the disarming of its citizens has led to exactly the opposite effect.

“The truth is that banks are the last feudal kingdoms, their rulers omnipotent, divine warlords. Their key lieutenants are ‘ronin’ (wandering mercenary samurai) who roam financial markets ready to ally themselves to any warlord for a share of plunder. This is not the place to apply the latest management theory.”
― Satyajit Das – Traders, Guns & Money
The journal's Jason Zweig reports:
Financial criminals throughout history have been beaten, tortured and even put to death, with little evidence that severe punishments have consistently deterred people from misconduct that could make them rich.
The history of drastic punishment for financial crimes may be nearly as old as wealth itself.
The Code of Hammurabi, more than 3,700 years ago, stipulated that any Mesopotamian who violated the terms of a financial contract – including the futures contracts that were commonly used in commodities trading in Babylon – “shall be put to death as a thief.” The severe penalty doesn’t seem to have eradicated such cheating, however.

I just received my tax return for 2011 back from the IRS. It puzzles me!!! They are questioning how many dependents I claimed. I guess it was because of my response to the question: "How many dependents?" I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads; 42 million unemployed people on food stamps, 2 million people in over 243 prisons; Half of Central America; 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate and 1 useless President. Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.

TheBlaze has culled 10 from the list of 70 here:
The price of gas – When Obama took office, a gallon of gas cost you $1.85. Today, it’s up to $3.59 per gallon (July’s rise was 17 cents a gallon).
71% of small business owners believe we’re still in a recession — Despite government claims that the recession actually ended years ago, a majority of small business owners feel very differently.
You have to work 107 days each year just to pay Federal, State, & Local taxes – That means you don’t earn a penny until April 18th.
More than 30% of unemployed Americans have been out of work for more than a year – In 2007, that number was 10%.
Low income America – According to NBC News, virtually half of all Americans are considered to be “low income” or living in poverty.
“I’ve said it a lot, that if Obama opened up his records, maybe Mitt should give his returns,” Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “That would be a great trade. I guarantee it would be a really wonderful trade.”
Trump offered a list of sealed documents he believes Obama should present for the deal.
In Armour v. City of Indianapolis, (No. 11-161 6-4-12) the Supreme Court again decided to ignore the Constitution and side with the government on very unsteady ground. At issue was whether the City had to pay back to certain homeowners money it had collected for a sewer assessment that it was later able to obtain funding for (through bonds). While the plaintiffs in this case paid the entire assessment (some $9,000 up front), the other homeowners who elected to pay the assessment over time had the amounts remaining due forgiven. While this would seem to violate the Equal Protection Clause with the government favoring one group of citizens over another, the court disagreed. Because the right at issue was economic rather than a “fundamental” right, the court applied the “rational basis” test. In other words, did the City have a rational basis to make the distinction between the homeowners who paid the assessment up front and the homeowners who chose to pay it over time.
The City’s “rational basis” was that it was inconvenient to issue the refunds.
To his credit, Chief Justice Roberts indicated in his dissent that: “The Equal Protection Clause does not provide that no state shall ‘deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, unless it’s too much of a bother.’” Only Scalia and Alito joined the dissent, leaving this the current law of the land as stated by a majority of 6. Your economic rights can be trampled on by government. One can only dream of the time when the American public wakes up and starts electing libertarian officials to dismantle the non-working nonsensical unconstitutional parts of our government and demand that the Constitution be followed in a logical consistent way and that the rights given to individuals in the Constitution are resuscitated.
Professional-level tennis returns to Salisbury August 15 - 19 with the Jack Purnell-Chris Thomas Memorial Tennis Tournament at Salisbury University
Some of the world’s top tennis pros mingle with local amateurs and families during the ninth annual Jack Purnell-Chris Thomas Memorial Tennis Tournament at Salisbury University.
The event opens with Community Tennis Night from 5-9 p.m. Tuesday, August 14, at the SU tennis courts on College Avenue. Guests of all ages are invited to meet this year’s players in person and watch them compete in events including fastest and most accurate serve competitions. SU tennis coach Randy Halfpap hosts a free Junior Tennis Clinic for players ages 18 and under beginning at 4:30 p.m.
At 6 p.m., local amateurs also will have a chance to play with the professionals during the tournament’s second annual pro-am challenge. The entry fee for amateur players is a $50 tax-deductable contribution to Coastal Hospice, the tournament’s beneficiary. Space is limited, and advance sign-ups are recommended.
The pro-am may be a welcome diversion for some players, who will compete for $30,000 in prize money during the five-day men’s open doubles and singles tournament, Wednesday-Sunday, August 15-19.
Many professional players ranked as high as 150 in the world will enter the draw. Some take advantage of the proximity of this tournament to the U.S. Open Tennis Championships in New York City as a warm-up and practice for the Open. The court surface and weather conditions, including heat and humidity are similar to those the players experience in the Big Apple the week following Purnell-Thomas. Veterans of the tournament have been the focus of international attention at Wimbledon and, more recently, at the Summer Olympics in London, where they represented their countries.
In addition to the pros and amateurs, local television personalities battle for bragging rights at this year’s tournament during the second annual Coastal Hospice Challenge 10 a.m. Saturday, August 18, at 10 a.m. Doubles teams from WBOC and WMDT are expected to pick up the rackets in this friendly winners-take-all competition.
The tournament is named in honor of two late local tennis players. Born in 1929, Purnell was an avid baseball player and went on to become the youngest general manager for a farm team of the Cincinnati Reds before working in the public relations office of the National Baseball League. After returning to Salisbury he operated his family’s business, Kuhn’s Jewelers, and took up tennis and golf. He was a community advocate and founding board member of Coastal Hospice prior to dying of cancer in 2002.
Thomas grew up in southern New Jersey and Salisbury. A natural athlete, he was a graduate of SU, where he was a member of the men’s tennis team. He left the East Coast in 1980 to work as a tennis pro in Hawaii and Guam. He returned to the area in 1981. Admission to the Purnell-Thomas Tennis Tournament is free and the public is invited. Play is continuous daily from 10 am – 9: 30 pm.
A justice of the peace in Georgetown denied a defense request Monday to stay the extradition of 28-year-old Matthew Burton of Dagsboro pending the filing of a habeas corpus petition in Superior Court.
But after the petition was filed, a Superior Court judge ordered that Burton remain in the custody of Delaware prison officials pending an Aug. 16 hearing on his extradition challenge.
The Main Street Gym and the people that run it try to hold fundraisers every so often to keep the Gym up and running.
Hal and Nancy Chernoff, (along with an incredible group of friends) provide an incredible environment for young children in Salisbury to get off the streets and get them involved in exercise programs.
While I consider these people good friends, they never overwhelm me with, hey Joe, can you help us with this or that all the time. Instead, when they do come to me they ask if I can put something up on Salisbury News to help promote their fundraisers.
In this case they're offering a full day charter fishing trip for $10.00 per ticket. They'll do the drawing this Saturday in Ocean City. Here's how I personally see it. If you buy a ticket you're giving back to your community. If you win, well, you are in for one heck of a day, let me assure you. I know the boat owner and let me assure you, this guy does everything first class.
If you'd like a ticket please give Hal a call at 410-430-6687 or stop by the Main Street Gym in the evening. I think you all know, if I don't like a certain group I won't push to help them. This is a very special group and I'd like you to help them. In fact, if you've never been to the Main Street Gym, I highly recommend you stop in and see their facility. It will blow you away.
Thank You For Your Support
I read the article below and my first thought was, this is how riots start. Read it for yourself, I recommend you do so on an empty stomach because if you don’t you might be wearing your last meal.
Incidents like this, the incident in Anaheim that has sparked Disneyworld to resemble a warzone and the elderly man tasered inside his own home for not going to the hospital, are seemingly more commonplace than ever. This may only be a perception due to the availability of info on the internet, but instead of using that statement as a scapegoat to be dismissive of the issue, we should be using it to address the situation. The police are not there for your safety.
Lesson to be learned: There is an increasing likelihood that you will regret seeking help from a police officer, therefore do so at your own risk.
I personally don’t want to sub-contract my safety to a third-party. I want to be able to protect myself and my family as I see fit. I don’t want/need the men in blue to kick in my door or my neighbors door for “our own good.” I don’t support the idea of a monopolistic police force (publicly funded or not) that is essentially above the law. Who watches the Watchmen?
Mayor Bloomberg grandstanded in the wake of the Aurora Massacre that the police should “go on strike” until the public as a whole give up their firearms. I am starting to work on an article about this very topic. There are many good police officers out there and I know it would be quite painful to deal with traffic accidents and domestic disputes with no public police force available. But with the current police force out there today and all the normal abuses and terrorism we as the public are forced to endure from them along with the paramilitary and military trajectory they are on would we be better off if the police took Mayor Bloomberg’s suggestion? And then we didn’t give into their demands? If it’s a package deal which would you choose?
It would be far from painless, but safety can’t be guaranteed no matter how many rights are given up and what is going on today is simply unsustainable, eventually something much worse is going to happen.
The review by OGE said GSA's ethics program appeared "effectively administered and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and policies." In addition, OGE said GSA had developed "model practices" for ethics procedures.
But, Cause of Action said OGE missed obvious warnings in its review of GSA's ethics program.
No injuries were reported, but the Islamic Society of Joplin's building was a total loss after the blaze, first reported at about 3:30 a.m., the Jasper County Sheriff's Office said. As of late Monday, nobody had been arrested in connection with the fire.
I just wanted to update and let everyone know that Kali was found this morning around 7:30 am. She is doing good and the Pet ER did a thorough health check. My family is so touched by everyone's generosity. Thanks to all the vets and techs along with their friends helping us search all morning and night. Thanks to the owner of this site for being so kind as to post and share this info. I could go on and on..
We've had our dog for 7 years, and on vacation at the beach she got sick. We took her to Pet's ER in Salisbury and while they were taking her to the bathroom, she ran off.
My wife and I got a call in the middle of the night telling us and we've been looking ever since. Worst thing about all of this was that we also owned her mom whom just passed away about 2 months ago from old age. Please help and post this.
I sincerely appreciate anything you can do for us!
So what’s not to like about the health law for young Americans? The under-appreciated truth is that the ACA has serious adverse impacts on young Americans, far more significant and longer lasting than temporary eligibility to remain on a parent’s insurance.
Health insurance costs are now dramatically shifted onto the backs of younger, healthier adults. Proponents of the ACA claim that those shunning insurance are responsible for shifting massive costs to insured Americans, thereby raising insurance prices significantly without the ACA’s individual mandate. This is factually false. Generally, the population at whom the mandate is directed – those who voluntarily do not buy insurance and are not eligible for current government insurance – tend to be younger, healthier, and use far less medical care, on average about $850 and only $56 per year in emergency care. Based on both household survey and provider data, uninsured health care shifts only 0.8% to at most 1.7% of expenditures toward those already insured.
Dr. Richard Rende, a 60-year-old orthopedic surgeon from Steamboat Springs, Colo., told Chaney his 48-foot sailing catamaran would be departing early from Herrington Harbour North, the marina Chaney's family owns in southern Anne Arundel County.
On June 25, he arrived at the marina, where he pays $1,000 a month to dock. He has spent $30,000 in Maryland _ mostly on boat work with different companies, but also at local restaurants and hotels.
But Rende is leaving for Delaware to avoid Maryland's vessel excise tax, which would force him to pay 5 percent of the value of his boat if he stayed in the state longer than 90 days this year.
I consider myself fortunate for a number of reasons: the privilege to serve the people of Maryland, the ability to make a real difference in the lives of families, and the opportunity to move our great State forward through difficult economic times.
I am also fortunate that I have had a true partner in governing from the day I took office – your Lieutenant Governor, and my friend, Anthony Brown. Anthony is an outstanding public servant, and I have seen first-hand the results we’ve achieved becaused of Anthony’s leadership on efforts to create jobs, improve healthcare, and make college more affordable for more families.
No matter what lies ahead for Anthony in public service, I know that I will be with him 100 percent, because I believe that our State, our communities, and all Marylanders will benefit greatly with Anthony bringing people together to work for our shared priorities.
As Lieutenant Governor, Anthony has pushed hard to get our economic initiatives passed to protect our investments in education and job creation. He is nationally recognized for his leadership on behalf of our veterans, and he has developed groundbreaking new laws to protect victims of domestic violence.
The challenges facing Maryland have not been easy, and our progress would not have been possible without Anthony’s leadership and determination. Together, we’ve made the largest investment in our State’s history in public education, and Maryland’s public schools have been ranked number one in the nation four years in a row. Together, we have been able to maintain Maryland’s Triple A bond rating. And together, we’ve been able to recover 65 percent of jobs lost during the Great Recession and keep our unemployment rate more than 15 percent below the national average.
Throughout all of these challenges, Anthony has been by my side every step of the way. He has taken the lead on some of the most difficult measures our administration has pursued, from expanding and improving the delivery of health care and eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse in Medicaid, to strengthening Maryland laws protecting neglected children, to taking guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. He has leveraged legislative experience, consensus-building skills, and intelligence to pass many of our most critical priorities.
We have to work hard to make sure this progress continues well into the future, and that our State continues to move forward. For these reasons and more, I urge Anthony to continue his public service and pursue the greatest possible level of public responsibility. He has been my partner day in and day out, and he understands what needs to be done to make sure our state moves forward, not back.
After nearly six years of working together, I know that Anthony understands better than anyone how our government works, and more importantly, how to ensure it works best to improve the lives of our citizens. More than any other public official, Anthony Brown has my complete trust in his ability to serve the best interests of Maryland.
Over the coming months, I will be working hard to make sure Maryland benefits from Anthony’s continued leadership and that the progress we have made together continues well into the future. I hope you will join me in supporting Anthony in his commitment to build on the progress we’ve made in the years to come.
P.S. Please take the time to visit www.AnthonyBrown.com to learn more about Anthony’s story, his family, his military service, and the hard work he’s doing every day to move Maryland forward.
State Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky signed an order that requires London-based Standard Chartered Bank to answer his questions following an investigation into "wire stripping," the practice of removing crucial identifiers in financial transactions.
The state agency called the bank a rogue institution and quoted one of its executives as saying: "You (expletive) Americans. Who are you to tell us, the rest of the world, that we're not going to deal with Iranians."

3rd Place - Arrest and Search Scenario
Delaware State Police Explorers attended the National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference held at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado the week of July 16, 2012.
During this week long conference Delaware State Police Explorers competed against Explorers from other Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies around the country in team and individual competitions. Bomb Threat Response, Crisis Negotiations, Police Physical Performance Test, and Non-Emergency Vehicle Operation Course are to name a few of the competitions.
This year’s conference was attended by over 2700 participants who along with competing in competitions, attended courses of instruction and demos in tactical training. At the conclusion of the week the State Police Explorers Post #2930 out of Troop 3 in Dover attended closing ceremonies and received a 3rd Place award in the Arrest and Search Scenario out of 324 teams competing. During the competition they were judged on the approach to the scene, entry into the scene, arrest of the two suspects, location of evidence, and team work. (See Attached Photo from left to right: Derek Glover – Harrington, Sean Hastings – Magnolia, Kelli Janocha – Magnolia, Lamar Chandler – Dover, Xavier Moore – Dover, Jordon Ford - Dover)
State Police Explorers Post #2852 out of Troop4 in Georgetown also received recognition scoring in the top 10% in the Crime Prevention Scenario. (See Attached Photo from left to right: Cpl/2 Cheryl Arnold – Headquarters, Emily Bergman – Dagsboro, Patrick Gaskin – Seaford, Julius Young – Milton, Troy Bowden – Georgetown, Josh Baker – Gumboro, Samantha Deleon – Milford, Paul Whaley – Ocean View, Mason Chambers – Georgetown, Cpl/3 Mark Justice – Troop 4)
For those not familiar with the Delaware State Police Explorers group they are comprised of young people ages 14-20 years of age. Most of the students involved have an interest in making Law Enforcement a career choice.
Explorers have monthly meetings throughout the year and are provided courses of instruction related to Bomb Threat Assessment, CPR, and Burglary in Progress, Community Service, Domestic Dispute, Collision Investigation and conducting traffic stops to name a few. The explorers not only receive classroom instruction but also hands on application of subjects studied.
Explorers can be noticed at community service events throughout the state involving Camp Barnes, Delaware State Fair, Special Olympics and Punkin Chunkin.
Qualification requirements are: mature, clean cut, clean shaven, 2.0 and above GPA students who have no criminal arrest history. This is not a discipline program. There is a Post at every Troop. Contact your local State Police Troop to find out more about this program and how you could join!
The documents, obtained through a public records request, show Sybrina Fulton applied for the compensation benefits after her son was fatally shot last February by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in a gated community in Sanford, Fla. It was not immediately clear how Martin's family would use the money.
The fire began at 6:15 p.m. in the No. 4 Crude Unit at the Richmond refinery. Officials say workers noticed a leak and called for an inspection team. They realized it was a serious problem so they evacuated the unit and that's when the leak ignited.
The attorneys general of Virginia and 13 other states have filed an amicus brief urging the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to affirm the ruling of a federal judge in Baltimore, who found that Maryland’s requirements for carrying a concealed weapon violate the Second Amendment.
The 4th Circuit last week expedited Maryland’s appeal of that ruling, under which the state would be forced to drop the requirement that a permit applicant show a “good and substantial reason” for carrying a concealed weapon.
The 4th Circuit said it would hear argument in the case in late October and, meanwhile, the permit requirements can stay as they are.
The case is Woollard v. Gallagher, US4th No 12-1437.
