"Dowever, in my professional opinioh, I don't think we'll see a tremendous amount of excursion." O'Donnell based his reasoning on two factors: the like- lihood that all 194 buildable lots will be developed in the next two years is low; and 90 percent of current excursions are related to stormwater issues.

Shea's death was the 23rd in the division, with the last being in 2001 when Cpl. Frances M. Collender was, killed while on duty. "It's not new to me," said Chaffinch. "They're all hard, of course, and we hope there will never be another. But this one is particularly difficult because it was such a senseless death. "What I told the troopers is we can't fix it.

O'Donnell also indicated that smoke testing of sewer lines will soon commence. Nontoxic smoke will be injected into the sewer sys- tem to detect illegal or area's in need of repair, said O'Donnell. Residents will be notified before the procedure begins. Lewes Mayor Jim Ford said BPW, City Council and the plan- ning commission must com" to- gether and reach consensus on language that would at least allow the building process to move for- ward given that the process along is time consuming. Currently, de- velopers must first obtain a letter from BPW stating that all utilities are available before moving for- ward. "How far in the application process can they go," said F6rd. "Right now, they are stopped at the beginning. One answer is to have the project completed, but not hooked. I'm not proposing it get that far, but somewhere in-be: tween." BPW General Manager Ruth Anne Ritter drafted a proposal that would temporarily allow de- velopers to bypass the initial BPW letter requirement. The applicant would be notified that BPW is willing to review, but not approve, proposed plans imtil a final con- struction plan is required. Ritter said a developer often has to go back and forth to refine a plan. "This way, a developer would Karl Chalabala photo know up front they are preceding at their own risk," said Ritter. The proposal will be forwarded to council for comment. Cpl. Christopher Shea was among the Troop T officers who helped with Henlopen Acres and North Shores sponsored Child Finger- printing and Safety Day, July 17. The event allows parents to make a safety card with their child's fingerprints, height weight and a hair sample for DNA. "If parents update the cards often enough, it is very important in helping us find missing children," said Delaware State Police Troop 7 Sgt. Ken Hardy. "The cards have a place for dental records, a photo, medical information, a DNA hair sample and fin- gerprints." The cars remain in the parents' possession until an emergency happens. Then the parents have a very complete record of their child to give to the police. Shown during the finger- print session are (l-r) Troop- er Brian Thomson, Shea, Matthew Calen, Hardy, Jason Calen and Cpl.
