Lewes-The Delaware State Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit responded to the Pelican Square Shopping Center in Lewes last evening for the report of a suspicious briefcase.
On Friday, October 21, 2011 at approximately 9:00 p.m. Troopers responded to the Wine and Spirits Liquor Store after employees became concerned after discovering a suspicious briefcase that had been left inside the store unattended. Responding Troopers immediately evacuated the store and the adjoining Super Fresh Supermarket as a precaution and notified the DSP EOD Unit.
The Delaware State Police EOD Unit responded and examined the briefcase and determined it to be non explosive, containing papers and business forms, calculator, USB cords and office stationary items. The scene was declared safe at 1:00 a.m. with all units clearing.
“Troopers take this opportunity to encourage the public to become involved in the national “See Something, Say Something” Campaign. The effort urges the public to contact police if they see any suspicious activity or anything out of the ordinary, and assist by becoming force multipliers, acting as the eyes and ears for the Delaware State Police in combating terrorism.
The public can report suspicious activity by contacting Delaware’s Anti-Terrorism Tipline 1-800-FORCE-12 (1-800-367-2312) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
No doubt SU is getting a lot of attention and promotion on this matter, ALL of which has been FREE.
I want to commend Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild for his effort to wake up a sleeping public to the dangers of UN Agenda 21 and its step child Plan Maryland. If you don't know much about this disastrous attack on American values check out this presentation: Agenda 21 For Dummies
Schoen writes, "What binds a large majority of the protesters together … is a deep commitment to left-wing policies: opposition to free-market capitalism and support for radical redistribution of wealth…" He bluntly concludes, "President Obama and the Democratic leadership are making a critical error in embracing the Occupy Wall Street movement -- and it may cost them the 2012 election." I sure hope Schoen's instincts are right, but Obama will have a huge war chest and the best campaign that money can buy.

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Two Virginia nuclear reactors shut down since an earthquake hit the state in August did not suffer damage that would prevent them from running and are ready to restart, the plant's operator told the government Friday.
But the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's review is continuing and the agency has not decided whether the reactors at the North Anna Power Station in Mineral, Va., should return to service.
My Name is Jennifer Mansfield. I saw your post about the missing deer
the other day and thought you may be interested in the outcome. I had
a friend stop by saying they heard that it was on WBOC.com, so we
looked. My friend recognized the store as the one on Nanticoke Rd, as
she lived in that area she went there yesterday at lunchtime. The
girls working told her that the deer showed up late Tuesday and
"bunked down" in the back yard, with several people stopping, petting,
getting pics.....etc. On Wednesday a customer called DNR on him and
they (DNR) came out and picked him up. According to the girls DNR was
very nasty to them stating that they were going to destroy the deer
and they could have the store closed down by the health department.
Their reasons were all the Diseases that deer carry, anyone who
touched the deer and entered the store "compromised" the health and
welfare of the other people in and out of the store. If this is true
then they need to ban all hunters from entering any place of business,
after hunting, for the entire hunting season. I have done extensive
research and there are 6 diseases that deer can harbor. Only 1 (brain
abscess) is stated to not be consumed by humans, no other diseases are
transmittable to humans. Therefore DNR lied. I just wanted to put out
there the callous arrogance of the DNR. This deer was only trying to
survive and did not deserve to be destroyed! I hope you have the
willingness and the contacts to put this out there.

SUSSEX COUNTY — Delaware Public Service Commission has voted unanimously to allow Bloom Energy to move forward with a plan to set up shop in Delaware.

Sussex County’s defiance of requests to stop saying the Lord’s Prayer to open meetings is headed to federal court next year. Oral arguments are due to be presented in January 2012 in U.S. District Court.
On June 30, Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed a lawsuit on behalf of four Sussex County residents who say the prayer is sectarian and unconstitutional because it promotes the Christian religion over all others.
An audit of the Mariner Middle School band boosters has uncovered an unauthorized bank account opened by the band director who then mismanaged funds, state auditors say.
The report found a reducation of nearly $10,000 in the band boosters bank account from 2008 to 2010, according to the report. However, Chief Administrative Auditor Kathleen O'Donnell said there's no way to tell how much is actually missing because no one was checking it. Band boosters also tend to handle a lot of cash, which can be tough to track, she said.
