Food Establishment Inspection Reports For Delmar Delaware

A look at the State of Delaware  Food Establishment Inspection Reports on the Office of Food protection website.  There seems to be only one inspection in Delmar in 2016 (Food Lion) so everything else is in 2015. The second to last columns show the date of inspection and the last column shows if there was a violation and if so the violation code and if it was corrected on premises at the time of inspection.

Election Day

Today is the primary election day I am sure by now the News shows have predicted the winner even before the polls close.




It is a great looking carnival going on in Delmar - stop by



I received today a 1964 photo of the Carousel in Ocean City.  Lee Donehower sent it to me after reading my 2008 post on Bobby Baker and the Carousel.  Interesting the Bobby Baker post is the most popular one on my blog.  The other post were #2 The 1933 Bank Holiday, #3 was Restaurant Impossible - Rascals, #4 Tractor Supply, and #5 The Rancher a Delmar House Style.  Yes a strange group but that is what happens when the internet surfs for topics.

  Can you imagine the outcry if someone posted something like this 1970 yearbook photo in their yearbook today?  and it looks like it was taken in the school.

Yes, as most of us, know there is sidewalk replacement in Delmar and traffic is screwed up

Summertime is here think before you put those flip flops on

The town was sweeping the streets on the Delaware side today.

Mural Art In Northern Ireland
Irish Confederates were not as numerous as those who fought for the Union; an estimated 150,000 Irish served in the Union Army while only 30,000 served in the Confederate Army. Of the 425 Confederate generals, six were Irish. There were more Irish among the colonels, and they served in various positions, but many more Irish served in lower ranks - some in the Confederate Navy. One of the most famous Irish Catholic chaplains was Father John B. Bannon, also known as the “fighting chaplain.” Many of the hardest-fighting units included Irish within their ranks. The casualty rates were higher among the Irish than among other groups; these soldiers typically refused to give up where others would retreat. 






Speaking of the Irish remember this presentation going on in Ocean Pines tomorrow.

Actually I think the below is Bullshit and recycling sucks

DNREC issues $40,000 penalty to Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. for solid waste recycling violations

DOVER (April 25, 2016) – DNREC Secretary David S. Small has issued a Notice of Administrative Penalty and Secretary’s Order to Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. for violations of Delaware’s Regulations Governing Solid Waste. The Order includes a penalty of $40,000 and $3,660 in cost recovery for the Department.

Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. is licensed to transport solid waste, operating under a Delaware Solid Waste Transporter Permit. Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. owns and operates businesses located at 300 Harvey Drive in Wilmington and at 226 South Railroad Avenue in Georgetown, providing solid waste collection services to residential and commercial customers throughout the state.

Delaware’s Solid Waste Recycling Law (also known as the Universal Recycling Law) requires all waste service providers to collect source-separated recyclable materials in a manner to ensure that the source-separated recyclable materials enter the marketplace and are otherwise not disposed via a landfill or by incineration. The Universal Recycling Law also requires waste service providers to provide their residential trash customers with certain recycling services.

DNREC documented solid waste violations by Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. in Wilmington, Lewes, and Selbyville at various times during 2015. Violations were related to Waste Management’s combining trash and recyclables from separate collection containers into one truck compartment, or by Waste Management not providing curbside recycling service as required by law.

Prior to the Secretary’s Order, DNREC also had issued Waste Management  notices of violation (NOVs) in June and October of 2014, and in January this year for failure to provide adequate single-stream recycling collection services to some of its single-family and multi-family residential customers. DNREC also notified Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. of the need to comply with all aspects of the Universal Recycling Law. 
           
The Secretary’s Order can be found on the DNREC website at http://www.dnrec.delaware.gov/Info/Pages/SecOrders_Enforcement.aspx.

Waste Management of Delaware, Inc. has 30 days to appeal the Order.

Raymond J. Bowman a Last ManTo Die


21 year old Raymond J. Bowman was known as the "Last man To Die" in Europe in WW2 on April 18, 1945.  He died in  Leipzig, Germany. Yesterday the city of Leipzig named a street after him.  Life magazine did a photo spread on him.  https://books.google.com/books?id=CUoEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA40-IA2&pg=PA40-IA2#v=twopage&q&f=false

Misc Saturday

Great day - Great weather - spent the last couple days working on the backyard.

Tonight we listen to the sounds of the race track. Anyone looking to buy a house in Delmar should ride around the town on "race Night", no doubt they will change their minds and buy elsewhere.

Delmar had a little league parade this morning.  Here are a couple of photos
 Of course the teams wouldn't be without the support of the companies that sponsor the teams to the little league adults who organized it to the town employees who block off the streets and lead and trail the parade with a police vehicle.
 as usual click on the photo for a larger version












There is a carnival coming.




Back in the 1950s we use to pick this show up from Baltimore

Dialing For Dollars with Stu Kerr and Susan White, there was also a Bowling for Dollars.  Stu Kerr was just a likeable person. You use to see him often in Ocean City.  I understand he died in 1994.

and of course I have to mention Marty Bass and his toupee, and his co-newsman Don Scott who spent 40 years with WJZ
