NEWS RELEASE DELAWARE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

 July 16, 2013


DOVER -- More than 160 Delawareans received an up-close and personal look at life on Delaware farms today on a bus tour jointly sponsored by the Delaware Department of Agriculture and Kenny Family ShopRite stores.

The tour took New Castle County residents to visit three farms in Kent and Sussex counties: Fifer Orchards of Camden; T.S. Smith & Sons of Bridgeville; and Evans Farm of Bridgeville. All three grow for ShopRite.

“Events like this give more people an opportunity to see how our farmers grow the fresh, local produce we enjoy every day, and that’s very valuable,” said Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee. “We want more Delawareans to understand how their food gets from the field to the fork. The commitment of Kenny Family ShopRite stores to purchasing local vegetables and fruits, and to educating their customers about what they eat, cannot be understated.”

 “ShopRite has a long history of supporting local farmers by providing customers with fresh, peak of the season, affordable fruits and vegetables. Our stores serve as information centers for shoppers to learn more about where their food comes from, with signs and displays showing exactly which farms their corn, tomatoes and watermelon grew on,” said Dan Tanzer, director of marketing with Kenny Family ShopRite, which has six stores in New Castle County. “We’re very happy to be able to bring a few of our favorite customers on to the farms and let them learn more about how they can support our community through ShopRite's locally grown offerings.”

"We till nearly 2,000 acres, but our relationship with the customers is just as important as our relationship to the land," said Kevin Evans, owner of Evans Farms in Bridgeville. “We welcomed the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the people who are enjoying the fresh, local fruits and vegetables we produce.” Evans Farms, located on Del. 404, features a seasonal produce market and Community Supported Agriculture program. The Evanses also participate in half a dozen community farmers' markets in Sussex and Kent counties.

An Arrest After Last Months Shooting on the Maryland Side Of Town

From Delmarva Now.com

DELMAR -- A Laurel teen faces several charges after he shot at the roommate of a police informant, Delmar police say in court documents.
Jhalir Shamar Henry, 17, is charged as an adult with several charges against the female roommate, including attempted second-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault, along with charges relating to the Laurel Police Department tipster: retaliate — witness — felony offense and conspiracy: retaliate — witness — felony offense. He also faces other charges.

The warrant in this case was served on him Saturday, court records indicate. Henry is being held on $1,000,000 bond and has a bail review today.

Delmar police were dispatched to a home on the Maryland side at about 10:41 p.m. June 26 for a report of shots fired, according to charging documents. A car drove by the home and the teen got out and asked where the police tipster was, then fired two shots in the direction of the female who was sitting on the porch, charging documents state.

The police informant had earlier made a controlled drug purchase for the Laurel Police Department from “Ja,” according to the police informant’s girlfriend, charging documents state, and “Ja” is Henry’s nickname.

The shooting resulted in a hole in the vinyl siding of the home, charging documents state.
