Three Children Die In Fire In Millsboro

Millsboro, Delaware – The Delaware State Police and the State Fire Marshal’s Office are currently conducting a joint death investigation that began on Wednesday at approximately 2:32 p.m. on August 7, 2019.

The preliminary investigation has determined that a 9-1-1 called was placed to the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center for a report of a fire on Scarp Street located in Pot Nets Development Bayside, Millsboro. As first responders arrived on scene the rear part of the residence was engulfed in flames and was quickly extinguished by the responding fire departments. Upon entering into the residence and through the heavy smoke three children were found deceased all under the age of five years old.

While the residence was on fire, one other child was safely removed from the residence by a parent. The child was transported to the Beebe Medical Center for a medical evaluation and was treated and released.

The three children victims who perished in the fire were turned over to the Delaware Division of Forensic Science where an autopsy will be performed to determine the manner and cause of death.

This is an active and ongoing investigation and is in its early stages with further information being released as it becomes available.

Please contact Assistant State Fire Marshal Michael Chionchio at 302-593-9002 for any inquiries related to the fire investigation.

Letter To The Editor Regarding Nicole Acle

Letter to the Editor

“I watched the Wicomico County Council meeting on PAC 14 with disgust last night. The newly appointed council member for Marc Kilmer voted with the Democrats on a very important vote over the rejection of Paul Wilber.

That’s right, Nicole Acle proved last night that she isn’t a Republican and the Republican Central Committee made a mistake forwarding her name as Councilman Kilmer. 

Nicole Acle, you are a RINO and you proved it last night. I hope you don’t plan on running for “re-election” in 2020 because you are TOAST!! 

Not a RINO Nicole supporter.”

Bike Safety Salisbury

The City of Salisbury strongly believes that accidents are preventable, not inevitable, and the reworking of Waverly Drive is the first step towards preventing severe and fatal crashes. When a road is designed in such a way that it enables vehicles to travel at a speed much higher than the posted speed limit, it is the City’s responsibility to find a solution which keeps everyone safe.

Not only has the street been simplified via the removal of multiple, unnecessary turn lanes and median striping, but narrowed as well, to slow down traffic and promote safety in the area. In 2015, when plans were first coming together for the Salisbury Bike Network, Waverly Drive was one of the top chosen roads to become more bike-friendly. The new bike lane will soon to be outfitted with more permanent lane delineator posts and rumble strips.

Fatal cyclist collisions have been as high as 783 across the United States in recent years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The City of Salisbury looks forward to being a proponent for pedestrian safety, and the Waverly Drive improvements are just one of the components of our Vision Zero Network initiative, which works to eliminate traffic fatalities and increase safe mobility for all.

America Is Permanently Divided

The United States Of America exists no more. We have become a Country permanently divided by our differences in lifestyles. Today’s America is about making everyone feel comfortable, regardless of if it takes away the god given right of freedom from others and their beliefs.

Christian bakers having to go all the way to the Supreme Court because they didn’t want to make a gay wedding cake . The democrats wanting to allow open borders and give free education, food, phones and whatever else they can for people who broke the law to enter this Country. Even our immigrant ancestors had to come through Ellis island, they didn’t just get to go wherever they wanted. We have homeless natural born Americans with none of those benefits given to law breakers who run across the border.

Liberals wanting to take away our guns because they are uncomfortable with them. Every single mass shooter has one thing in common and it’s called mental illness not the caliber of their gun. When did it become ok to take away our rights because it makes others uncomfortable? People kill people it’s a sad reality and if it’s not a gun it will be a car, a bomb, a knife or even a rock. The Liberals get loud and all over tv about these latest deaths but do nothing to stop the over 350 per year murders in Baltimore or the 300 a year in a Detroit .

We will never come together as a Country again with people not willing to accept the facts of the statements above.
