?. INSIDE: 50] "'The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance" .;[. .--[ Delaware's Cape Region Tuesday, May 10 -Thursday, May 12, 2005 Volume 12 No. 99 Ca.didate emarks " " " " " 's r llraw ministers ire Many ask that JoM Green withdraw from board race By Jim Cresson School board candidate John Green's public comments in the,aie Gazette May 6 edition drew harsh criticism from a group of African American ministers and a call from the Cape Henlopen School District superintendent that Green immediately withdraw from the race. Green, 57, is in a three-way contest for a districtwide at-large seat on the Cape Henlopen School District Board of Education. It is Green's second run for a seat on the board. He ran in 2004, taking only 19 votes out of more than 1,800 votes cast. In the May 6 edition, Green submitted written responses to written questions, as did his opponents, Esthelda "Stell" Parker Firefighters arrived at 18724 Harbeson HAad at approx- imately 4:30 a.m., May 7, to extinguish a second-story blaze. Soon after they arrived at the scene, they learned Selby and John E. "TJ" Redefer. The question-read:. "Do you upport ren, ovating the high school or building a new one? Why?" Green's answer read: "When desegrega- tion came in the 1950s, Cape was too cheap to bulldoze down the old Lewes Black School. They bus in speciai-ed students from all over the county, segregate and warehouse them there using them as their money-making, multicolored n*****s of Dan Cook photo the home was also a crime scene where two people were murdered. Shown monitoring the perimeter of the scene is Cpl. Kenneth Argo of Delaware State Police Troop 4. the 21st century, the Sussex Consortium:" No matter that the answer had nothing to do with the question. No matter that Green was wrong on the desegregation decade in Delaware. Or that he did not know that Sussex Consortium is so well-regarded as a special program that the school was hon- ored by the Autism Society of America for being the National Autism Program of the Year in 2002-03.

About 15 hours after the crime, the body of the homicide suspect, Robert L. Wynn, 34; of Bethany Beach, was found in Maryland, an apparent suicide victim. Cpl. Jeff Oldham, state police spokesman, said "police and witnesses believe Wynn shot Lisa D. Suthard, 46, and Frank Cannatelli, 46, of Rehoboth Beach. Suthard's 13-year-old daughter and a friend were at home at the time of the crime and escaped unharmed.

At an event May 9, Gov. Ruth Ann Minner unveiled the new program saying that biodiesel, which uses soybeans as an ingredient, will help Delaware's farmers. "Helping active farmers earn at least a little profit is the best way to preserve farmland," Minner said. "I ,ould rather see farms growing soybeans than growing houses." The marina is selling biodiesel that is B- 5, or has 5 percent biodiesel and 95 percent regular diesel fuel. Officials hope to increase to 20 percent biodiesel in the near future. The biodiesel will be sold at the same price as regular diesel. Biodiesel can actually help engines, said Tom Verry of the National Biodiesel Board. It increases the start-up capability of the fuel, he said. The cost is almost the same for the con- sumer as well. For every percent of biodiesel in the fuel, the cost goes up about a penny, Verry said. "But with the tax cred- its, it's going to be about the same cost for the consumers." He said it works well for marine cus- tomers because biodiesel will reduce soot on the boats and residue sheens on the water. "I think the customers will really enjoy it." "This is a perfect fit," said IndianRiver Marina Manager Gary King. "As Delaware's first recognized clean marina, we've always been committed to Delaware's environment." Continued on page 13
