On October 30th at 2 pm the Delmar Public Library at 38481 Sussex Highway will have a
Delaware Humanities Forum program called Vietnam Mailbag. The Speaker will be Nancy E. Lynch
When American troops in Vietnam answered the call to correspond with a young reporter four decades ago, they could not have envisioned the enduring relevancy of their war letters or the rich legacy their words, photographs and memorabilia would leave to succeeding generations. Ms. Lynch discusses and reads selected war letters from her book, Vietnam Mailbag, Voices From the War: 1968-1972, based on her popular newspaper column, “Nancy’s Vietnam Mailbag.” She is accompanied by Vietnam veteran Rick Lovekin, a Huey helicopter door gunner, Cobra crew chief and frequent letter writer to Nancy, who shows slides from Vietnam set to 1960s music.
Delaware National Guard Marks its 360th Anniversary
State Rep. Dave Wilson joined with his legislative colleagues and Gov. Jack Markell recently (8/31) to mark the 360th anniversary of the Delaware National Guard.
The ceremony was held at the Fort Christina National Historic Landmark in Wilmington. The Guard can trace its origins as a citizen fighting force to an incident that occurred at the site on August 31, 1655.
The area was a Swedish colony at the time and the commander of the fort organized Delaware's first militia by riding throughout "New Sweden" to urge settlers defend the fort against Dutch invaders.
While the untrained Swedes were forced to eventually surrender the post, the occasion marked the first time that a Delaware citizen-militia was called on to perform military service. From those humble beginnings, the Delaware National Guard grew into a force that has played a role in every major U.S. conflict.
"The citizen-soldiers of the Delaware National Guard have served our citizens well for more than three centuries," Rep, Wilson said. "Whether it has been fighting conflicts abroad or helping with disaster recovery at home, our state owes a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have served, and who continue to serve, in the Guard."

The Delmar Maryland election; only two people filed for the three offices. Karen Wells filed for Mayor and Lloyd Unsell filed for commissioner, both are incumbents. Since no one filed for the third position of Commissioner they are having an election on November 17th in which write ins will be accepted. I assume if no one writes in someone name the Mayor and commissioner will appoint someone to that slot.

The contract was introduced as an exhibit in one of a series of legal cases over baseball card image rights between the Bowman Gum and Topps Chewing Gum corporations. A number of major league baseball players granted exclusive rights to their images to the Bowman Gum company for use on baseball cards. When Topps introduced cards featuring some of the same players, Bowman filed suit. Included in the exhibits are some of the original cards as well as authentic vintage chewing gum:

“I would like to take this opportunity to dialogue with the many thousands of men and women who strive each day to do an honest day’s work, to bring home their daily bread, to save money and – one step at a time – to build a better life for their families,” the pope said.
“These are men and women who are not concerned simply with paying their taxes, but in their own quiet way sustain the life of society,” he said. “They generate solidarity by their actions, and they create organisations which offer a helping hand to those most in need.”
From the speech given by the Pope - at least he recognizes us.
However Pope Francis pleaded for greater openness to accepting immigrants. Just how many immigrants have the Vatican City accepted? It is easy to pass the buck when you don't have to put up with immigrants. Lets send 10,000 Muslims to Vatican city
