Governor John Carney, last Thursday, signed into law two measures, effectively banning offshore drilling for petroleum and natural gas in Delaware’s Coastal Zone and coastal waters.
Senate Bill 200 prohibits drilling for oil or natural gas in Delaware’s coastal zone and territorial waters and precludes DNREC from issuing any permits in connection with the development of offshore drilling infrastructure, whether proposed for Delaware territorial waters or waters outside of the State.
Its companion measure, Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 207, opposes O&G drilling off Delaware’s coast and directs appropriate state agencies and officials to enforce Delaware’s rights in matters of offshore drilling under state and federal environmental laws.
The measures had wide bipartisan support, largely for reasons of potential environmental and economic impact that a major offshore Read more

The Midlantic Dispatch has obtained a Delaware Republican Party (DEGOP) State Executive Committee official statement that strongly renounces and disavows its 2018 Republican congressional candidate, Scott Walker:
Dear Fellow Delaware Republicans,
The Republican Party of Delaware stands squarely as the party of Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Regan for the principles of:
• Equality and respect for all.
• Personal freedom and liberty
• Smaller government.
Through a series of unfortunate events, we have on the ballot a candidate for Congress whose actions and views do not in any way represent the principles of our party.
Under our Party rules, a candidate can only be formally endorsed in a primary, if he or she has received 60% of the vote of the delegates to our spring convention. No candidate for Congress was put forth at that convention.

Barely three days after announcing his populist write-in campaign, Delaware congressional candidate, Andrew Webb has added a ‘b’ to the term “website”.
Electweb.com debuted the internet early Sunday morning.
Developed in-house with volunteer staff, for a fraction of the cost of most political websites, electweb.com is streamlined and to the point, stating his position on major issues. It openly invites citizens to share their concerns and encourages active voter involvement and support.
There is also a page dedicated to voter registration with instructions on how to cast a write-in ballot. Casting a write-in ballot in Delaware is more complicated
than pushing a button in a column. Due to the very narrow roll of paper embedded in the state’s obsolescent voting machines it takes some extra effort. However, with a
bit of concentration, Read more

David Rickards, President and CEO of Birdsong Gardens offers an economically profitable and sustainable solution to the problem of Delmarva's deteriorated water quality.
Duckweed ( Lemna minor) has been commonly treated as a rapidly growing nuisance aquatic plant to be disposed of . Generally, duckweed is controlled with copper algicide compounds, having negative impact on fish and other aquatic and estaurine life with a net deterioration of the natural biota. However, controlled harvesting and processing of lemna minor can yield useful and profitable commercial products with significant reduction in both nutrient and toxic water pollution in natural waterways and man made holding facilities.
A specific example is given for Allen Harim's proposed deboning plant near Millsboro, DE:
1) Allen Harim has 1,200 acres planned for spray field irrigation (@43,560 square feet/acre).
2) Read more
