Community Invited to Colonial School District Referendum Mtgs.

NEW CASTLE, Del.- The Colonial School District will host several public meetings for residents interested in learning more or helping with the upcoming operational referendum, scheduled for Tuesday, June 4. The referendum vote seeks approval for 35 cents per $100 of assessed property value (not to be confused with market value.)

"We recognize the need to reach out to the community and provide more information regarding the reasons for the referendum and specific amount of monies requested," said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dorothy Linn.

Community meetings have been scheduled for 7 p.m. at the following locations in New Castle:

  • Monday, April 22- McCullough Middle School, 20 Chase Ave.
  • Monday, May 13- Gunning Bedford Middle School, 801 Cox Neck Rd.

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs.

    Every morning during crabbing season, you can see watermen gathering up their pots, collecting their catch, and putting the pots back in the water. What you cannot see is the problem: pots that have had their lines severed sit on the bay's bottom, sometimes never seen again, along with the crabs inside them.
