Mitchell, 53, served as super- intendent of the Maryland State Police, the seventh largest state law enforcement agency in the country, with more than 2,500 em- ployees, more than 20 divisions and 23 barracks. In that position, he was the primary law enforce- ment adviser to then Gov. Pards Glendenning and a member of the governor's cabinet. After Sept. ll, 2001, Mitchell chaired the Governor's Homeland Security Work Group, creating legislation and revising proce- dures and plans to better prepare and protect Maryland. He created the Cease Fire initiative, aimed at reducing gun crime in Maryland. Mitchell established the first statewide domestic violence and intervention and investigation team. He also implemented new initiatives in computer crimes, la- bor relations, DNA forensic inves- tigations and community policing. Before his time as superintend- ent, Mitchell spent 24 years with the Prince George's County Police Department in Maryland, serving as chief of that department from 1990 to 1995.

Warner, May 28, to a year in jail and eight years of probation for securities and tax- code violations. The judge or- dered Warner, of Lewes, to pay $20,000 in fines, pay restitution to his victims and perform communi- ty service during his probation terms. Warner is also permanently barred from offerring or selling securities in Delaware. Attorney General M. Jane Brady announced Warner pleaded guilty, April-19, to charges of theft from a senior, two counts of secu- rities fraud, selling unregistered securities, selling securities by an unregistered agent and filing a false income tax return. The crim- inal cases named four Delaware families from Ellendale, Lewes and Laurel as victims. The state alleged Warner, presi- dent of I.G.I.T., which stands for, In God I Trust, raised nearly $75,000 from investors by selling worthless investment contracts and securities of Prosper Interna- tional League Limited or P.I.L.L. He did so by convincing investors he was a successful securities trad- er and a devout Christian. The state also alleged the PTL.L. in- vestment was an off-shore pyra- mid scheme through which in- vestors lost their funds. "Using religion to convince in- vestors, particularly senior citi- zens, to invest in worthless securi- ties, is inexcusable," said Brady.

Above-normal hurricane season predicted The National Oceanic & Atmos- pheric Administration (NOAA) has released its outlook for the 2004 Atlantic hurricane season. The NOAA has predicted a 50 per- cent probability of an above-nor- mal hurricane season; a 40 percent probability of a near-normal sea- son, and a 10 percent chance of a below-normal season, according to a consensus of scientists at NOAA's Climate Prediction Cen- ter (CPC), the Hurricane Research Division (HRD) and the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The out- look calls for 12 to 15 tropical storms, with six to eight becoming hurricanes, and two to four of these becoming major hurricanes of a Category 3 or higher, with winds exceeding 110 mph. The Atlantic hurricane outlook reflects a likely continuation of above-normal activity that began in 1995. Since then, all but two At- lantic hurricane season - the E1 Nifio years of 1997 and 2002 - have been above normal. The Lewes Mitigation Planning Team reminds residents that even without landfalling hurricanes, tropical storms can cause damage and death, and urges everyone to prepare now to ensure their safety during the hurricane season that began June 1.
