This is ‘an opportunity to re-examine how we deliver health,’ U.S. Sen. Chris Coons said, noting he has five AmeriCorps members serving in his office.

Snow, sleet make for a hazardous weather outlook

The storm is huge, hitting the Plains, the mid-Atlantic and the gulf, so the big question is which areas get the nasty precipitation and which get rain.

Here’s how tech is being used to reduce the pain of Restore the Corridor

Small devices and a lot of technology are being used to ease travel when I-95 is redone through Wilmington. You can help, too.

See more than 125 trucks parade through scenic southern Delaware at the 2013 Truck Convoy benefitting Special Olympics Delaware. This unique police-escorted convoy through Kent and Sussex Counties is a celebration of the trucking industry and its support of Special Olympics Delaware. Truckers meet at the fair grounds and are escorted by law enforcement officers on a 28-mile route through scenic Southern Delaware — including a parade in downtown Harrington — before returning to the fairgrounds for a festival and celebration. Special Olympics athletes have the opportunity to ride “shotgun” in the cab of one of the trucks during the Convoy.  Spectators can view the Truck Convoy in Harrington (Clarke and Commerce Streets), Milford (Route 14 across from Southern States) and Greenwood (Royal Farms gas station).

To participate, truckers (or their companies) must make a $100 donation. On 10/5/13, registration is from 7:30 to 9:30 am, and the Truck Convoy begins at 10:30 am.

Nationally, the Truck Convoy was founded in 2001 by Norm Schneiderhan, a corporal with the Orange County (FL) Sheriff’s Department. Schneiderhan, whose family is involved with the trucking industry, was inspired by the powerful impact Special Olympics has had on his life through his participation in the Law Enforcement Torch Run.  For more information visit www.sode.org.
