Editorial — Frankford, Dagsboro discussing creative solution

The Town of Frankford has been relying on Delaware State Police coverage since the resignation of former police chief Mark Hudson in July. Even before Hudson’s departure, there were some concerns that there simply wasn’t enough police coverage in the town, particularly with the area-wide rise in heroin-related crimes.

Dagsboro Police Chief Floyd Toomey may have found a solution.

Point of No Return — Happy Places can evolve, and that’s a good thing

There are certain things that just “feel right” in life.

Of course, these comforts are somewhat personalized. What feels natural and comfortable to one person might not be another person’s cup of tea.

Reader proud of Operation SEAs the Day

Editor:

We were minding our own business, driving east on 54 last Friday, when first we noticed all the pedestrians waving flags, and then we saw strobing police lights and heard the horns. All the cars stopped as the parade came towards us. We soon realized it had to do with SEAs the Day.

We may not want to admit it just yet, but summer as we know it will soon be wrapping up, and children in the area will soon be returning to their classrooms.

Point of No Return — It’s not about the parties — it’s all about the hate

On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler killed himself in a bunker, along with his wife of two days, Eva Braun. Reports suggest both of them took a cyanide pill to avoid being captured by Soviet troops who were moving in on their position, and Hitler finished the job on himself with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.

Tornado just another element of surprise for us

Point of No Return — Hair thieves, DNA providers and $1M bills. Oh my!

I’m sensitive to people losing their hair.

To be fair, I’ve had a lot of practice at witnessing the loss of hair, as mine began its course for full-scale evacuation when I was about 16. At 25, I was sporting the Count Dracula look, with a “widow’s peak” serving as my most notable physical characteristic. And, by 33, with a head that was beginning to look like a Chia-Pet perpetually stuck on the second phase of growth, I surrendered to the hair gods and took razor to scalp.

Scammers now come at people from every direction

Most of us have received the emails from Nigerian royalty promising to make us millionaries if we send a “small” amount of money their way. Or the free gift cards we can all get through our emails if we just sign up for a trial period of Product X. Or “urgent” emails from banks urging us to sign in on the website they provided a link to in order to keep your assets from being frozen.

Editorial: Murray left behind a proud legacy for all of Delmarva

When word began to filter through our newsroom on Tuesday that longtime News Journal environmental reporter Molly Murray had died, one would have thought that we had lost a co-worker of our own.
