"1- CAPE GAZETrE, Friday, June 13 - June 19, 2003 - 15 Ordinance ., wouldprotect il =:. the environment V ar-ag00c 1"100S By Jim Cresson Sussex County Council saw the first of an expected 18 ordinances that will put teth into !he 2003 comprehensive landuse plan, as it was introduced for discussion, June 10. The ordinance to amend Chap- ter 115 of the Code of Sussex County would, if passed, add a new section creating an environ- mentally sensitive development district overlay zone. As explained by County Plan- ner Rick Kautz, the proposed ordi- nance collates directly with state legislation. "It also gives developers a preapplication process so that when their plan is reviewed by county planners and council, all factors will be finished." The ordinance would affect all subdivisions of 50 homes or more and any development containing 754,000 square feet. or more of commercial or industrial uses. Rights Continued from page 10 court for undisclosed sums mid- way during the trial. On April 5, 2001, the jury found no basis for the racial discrimination charges against the town of Dewey or Campbell. Johnson appealed that ruling, dropping the racial discrimination charges and concentrating instead on the question of whether Camp- bell violated his Constitutional and civil rights by holding him 40 min- utes without probable cause or suspicion of probable cause before releasing him without charges. The Appeals Court ruling notext that: "speaking profane words in public or to a police officer is not a crime, therefore Campbell could not have had probable cause to be- lieve a crime was being commit- ted. Johnson's arrest violated the Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable seizures. Ac- cordingly, we will reverse the Dis- trict Court's denial of judgment as a matter of law on this claim. We hold that the evidence demonstrat- ed neither that Officer Campbell had a reasonable, articulate suspi- cion that Johnson was engaged ill criminal conduct when he stopped Johnson, nor that he had probable cause to arrest Johnson for disor- derly conduct. The state's two-hour detention law, as explained by Dewey Beach Police Chief Gordon Elliott, was enacted to make sure police offi- cers have time to determine whether there is probable cause for an arrest and, if so, time enough to file the warrants. "I think this case will go back and forth, back and forth," said E1- liott June 12. "It's not over yet; it's in the attorneys' hands." l,y00chael00" Baskets & "Silk" Greenery  Leot Label The Garc Co#ect/m Label, including Field Flowers Photo Frames Weston" Gallery Vedta.'
