Kane Lewis From Delmar Maryland

Picked up from South Jersey Times

NEW CASTLE, Del. — Authorities seized a stash of marijuana and cash early Tuesday morning at the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
At approximately 12:30 a.m., Delaware River and bay Authority police officers observed a green Ford Crown Victoria making unsafe lane changes while traveling on the westbound span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
DRBA officers pulled the vehicle over in the vicinity of the toll plaza. Neither the driver, Connor Davis, 20, of Salisbury, Md., nor his passenger, Kane Lewis, 19, of Delmar, Md., could provide identification to authority officers.
Due to conflicting stories provided by Davis, DRBA police officers contacted the Wilmington Police Department for K-9 assistance. K-9 Neo and his handler responded and conducted a walk-around sniff of the vehicle.
Neo indicated positively to the left rear of the vehicle’s truck. A cardboard box containing five one pound bags of suspected marijuana — each vacuum sealed — was located, police said. Additionally, U.S. currency in the amount of $2,012 was located in the trunk compartment and on the driver. The currency was seized and placed in evidence.

The two were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession of a deadly weapon during commission of a felony, and conspiracy second degree drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
Davis and Lewis were arraigned and are being held in lieu of $92,000 each.

Rent Court in Maryland

I read this on the Annapolis Patch and thought I would put it up in the event you have received a district court notice in Maryland from your landlord for being behind on rent.  In spite of what politicians say the economy has not turned around and people are still being kicked out of the rented homes.  Check it out here

Dumpster Fire

While walking over to attend the Utility Meeting tonight I saw the Fire Department was in the process of putting out a dumpster fire next to the new Delmar Police station.  Quite a blaze going.

  I didn't get a photo of the blaze but Gregg Smith did and I am including it with his permission above. I did take this one below as they finished putting it out.

Town Slogans

I came across an interesting one yesterday.  Lakeview, Arkansas slogan is; 'the best town by a dam site'.  Lakeview is in Baxter county and has about 900 people.  It sits on Bull Shoal lake created by the White river when the Bull Shoal Dam was built

Governor David Hazzard’s Law office

One blog that I look at is Tiny Houses  as it says it is devoted small homes, storage shed size.  It also throws in a lot of converted vans that act as camper etc.  Some items I like and most I don't, but that occasional one ideal I do like makes up for the ones I don't.

Recently they had a Milton, Delaware post on the law office of Governor David Hazzard in which someone uses as a home.

July 2013 Joint Council Meeting Tomorrow Night

Unlocking The History of an Old House

On Friday, August 16, at 1:30 pm, historian and educator Mike Dixon presents “Unlocking the History of an Old House.” Just as families have a past, old houses and the land they are built on have histories. This practical lecture is designed to show you how to uncover that past and answer questions such as when was the structure built, who lived in it, how has it changed over time, and what are its stories. The discussion centers on implementing an organized research process, what records are available, where to look for documents, and interpreting the findings. The discussion concludes by presenting suggestions for creating a history of an old house. If you know where to look, you may find the clues to the past.
