Note from the Delmar Police Department

Delmar Police Chief Ivan Barkley, would like to make Delmar, MD and Delmar, DE residents aware of some parking violations his department is noticing. Delmar, MD Ordinance # 718 and Delmar, DE Ordinance # 161 specifically notate several items that constitute violations of the Parking Ordinances and Chief wanted to bring them to everyone’s attention before tickets are issued and vehicles towed.  1- Abandoned Vehicles- disabled, inoperable or junk vehicles – Any motor vehicle, such as an automobile, truck, van, trailer, motor home, motorcycle or any type of yard, farm or road equipment, remaining on the street for 72 hours or more having one or more of the following conditions: Expired registration, Unregistered vehicle, or Inoperable as applicable to State Law is in violation. 

2- Blocking Private Driveway- It is unlawful for any person to park within five (5) feet of any driveway or let stand any motor vehicle, trailer, mobile home, whether occupied or not, except to momentarily to pick up or discard passengers, on any highway, road, street or within the Town limits of Delmar, MD and Delmar, DE. Anyone doing so is in violation.

3-Left Side Parking- It is unlawful for any person to park or let stand any motor vehicle, trailer, mobile home on the opposite side of any highway, road or street facing the opposite flow of traffic within the Town limits of Delmar, MD and Delmar, DE. Anyone doing so is in violation. Chief Barkley wants to make this information available to the citizens of Delmar now, prior to any warnings or tickets that may be written, so everyone can be aware of what the Ordinances state.  For more information about either MD Ordinance # 718 or DE Ordinance # 161, please contact Town Hall at 410-896-2777 or 302-846-2664 for a complete copy.

Baltimore Policeman Caesar Goodson Jr Acquitted

The Judge has acquitted all charges against Baltimore Policeman Caesar Goodson Jr in the Freddie Gray case.   Now I figured he would be found guilty and used as a scapegoat for this ridiculous case.  I guess now we will be hearing of riots etc created by the Black Trash Matters Movement and the Baltimore Mayor will pay them off once again.

South Fork Deli On Drinking Water Alert

I happen to look at the public notice section of the Delaware Office of Drinking Water website
and to my surprise found the South Fork Deli was on the list of Health Alerts (Since April). 

In their case they are on the health alert list for a high nitrate level in their water.  Now it just happens I was by the Deli a couple days ago and didn't notice any warning sign, but I wasn't looking for one.  I don't think high nitrates is going to bother me as it mainly is more of a harm to  infants under six months of age if they drink the water.
