Sleeping Cat



My cat found the recycle items box on the back porch and decided it was a great place to sleep or maybe that wine bottle in the box wasn't completely empty.

Water Main Valve Failure

State Street was and still is closed down today in Delmar.  Public Works went to do maintenance at the Laundromat and the valve to turn the water off failed creating a flood between First and Second street on State street.  They will continue to work into the night to attempt to fix it.  This is the second time State Street has been closed this year with the first time being when the Chris Mills building had the back of the building collapse.

Delmar teenager Shark Bite

NEWS FROM THE DELAWARE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL

Chief Wayne Kline, Delaware State Parks Enforcement, 302-739-9232
Cape Henlopen State Park swimming areas delay opening Tuesday after apparent shark bite

LEWES (June 9, 2014) - DNREC's Division of Parks & Recreation announced Monday evening that swimming areas at Cape Henlopen State Park are to delay opening Tuesday while biologists and lifeguards monitor the ocean beaches for unusual activity after a Delmar teenager reportedly was bitten on the arm by a shark this afternoon.

The 16-year-old was taken to Beebe Medical Center and treated for gashes on his left forearm. He later told DNREC Parks Enforcement that he felt something grab his arm about 5 p.m. while he was standing in about five feet of water. The teen then used his right arm to flail at what he described as a shark to get it to release its bite before it swam away. Lifeguards on duty at Cape Henlopen treated his cuts and the Lewes Fire Department transported the teenager to Beebe by ambulance for further medical attention.

Chief Wayne Kline of Parks Enforcement said that the main swimming beach at Cape Henlopen State Park will delay allowing swimmers in the water Tuesday until later in the morning, while lifeguards who go on duty at 9 a.m. and DNREC marine biologists monitor the water.

Zockollthoughts Blog Post

There is a mention of an abuse in Delmar High School on the Christian blog "Zockollthoughts."  Names are made up but perhaps those who went to school here in the 1970's can figure out who he talking about.

FLAG DAY AND NATIONAL FLAG WEEK, 2014

FLAG DAY AND NATIONAL FLAG WEEK, 2014
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION
Over farmlands and town squares, atop skyscrapers and capitol buildings, the American flag soars. It reminds us of our history -- 13 colonies that rose up against an empire -- and celebrates the spirit of 50 proud States that form our Union today. On Flag Day and during National Flag Week, we pay tribute to the banner that weaves us together and waves above us all.
For more than two centuries, Americans have saluted Old Glory in times of trial and triumph. Generations have looked to it as they steeled their resolve, and an unbroken chain of men and women in uniform has served under our flag. From the banks of Baltimore's Inner Harbor to European trenches and Pacific islands, from the deserts of Iraq to the mountains of Afghanistan, they have risked their lives so we might live ours. When we lay our veterans to rest, many go draped with the stars and stripes upon them, and their families find solace in the folds of honor held tightly to their chest. Because of their sacrifice, our Nation is stronger, safer, and will always remain a shining beacon of freedom for the rest of the world.
With a familiar design that has evolved along with a growing Nation, our flag stitches the ideals for which America was born to the reality of our times. It reminds us that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges. As we prepare to meet the great tests of our age, let every American draw inspiration from this symbol of our past, our present, and our common dreams.
To commemorate the adoption of our flag, the Congress, by joint resolution approved August 3, 1949, as amended (63 Stat. 492), designated June 14 of each year as "Flag Day" and requested that the President issue an annual proclamation calling for its observance and for the display of the flag of the United States on all Federal Government buildings. The Congress also requested, by joint resolution approved June 9, 1966, as amended (80 Stat. 194), that the President annually issue a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as "National Flag Week" and call upon citizens of the United States to display the flag during that week.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim June 14, 2014, as Flag Day and the week beginning June 8, 2014, as National Flag Week. I direct the appropriate officials to display the flag on all Federal Government buildings during that week, and I urge all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by displaying the flag. I also call upon the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, also set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-eighth.
BARACK OBAMA
