At the time of the theft, there was a Yamaha Wave Runner and a Sony laptop computer in the truck. The Penn- sylvania tag number on the vehi- cle is ZL78115.

Wayne said that for ten weeks of the year when the complex is in full Swing, "Softball World" is preferable to most other develop- ment. John Mintzer said that we often hear of new things for adults, but seldom for children. "I don't see a lot of this going on anymore for kids." "If the answer to traffic prob- lems is not to allow anything to be built, then we are in trouble," said Ken Christianbury, who frequent- ly does development consulting work. " One concern of neighbors was that the complex could be used for other commercial uses should it fail or change owners. The appli- cation, however, is for a condi- tional use, which means it can on- ly be used for this specific land use. Unlike a zoning change, a con- ditional use is limited to a specific type of land use. It can also have conditions, placed upon it, such as hours of operation. Several neighbors worried about traffic, noise, lights and safety. Several said the area is already noisy because of the airport and that traffic is already difficult to negotiate in Georgetown. Townsend said that most traffic will avoid the Georgetown Circle and the main part of town because he expects most traffic to come from the beach area because it has more accommodations. Townsend also said that lighting cannot be seen more than a few feet beyond the fields. Barbara Eaton questioned whether more activities were needed for youth while David Alexander worried about the safe- ty of locating so close to an air- port. Alexander said pilots frequently veer off course and fly over local homes, including one crop duster who flew too close for Alexan- der's taste.

Sutton spent the nighS, but when the victim returned home from work the next day, he discovered his keys, truck and some cash missing. The 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck with an extended cab is teal green and gray. It bears Delaware tag CL46364. O'Day is asking community members who may know the whereabouts Of any of the stolen vehicles to call Troop 7 at 644- 5020. To date in 2001, Troop 7 has a 33 percent clearance rate on cases involving stolen motor vehicles; in June its rate was 50 percent. The state's average clearance rate is 12 percent; and nationalrate is 15 percent. Last year, Troop 7 had the highest Part I major crimes case clearance rate of any troops in the state, with 38 per- cent. O'Day said many of the troop's cases are cleared quickly and effi- ciently because road patrol of'ri- cers work so well with and re- ceive strong support from detec- tives at Troop 4 in Georgetown. O'Day reminded people to al- ways lock their cars and park in well-lit areas at night. "And if you have an antitheft device, re- member to activate it. Of'f-high- way vehicles should be kept in a locked garage and should never be left unattended." "Ydu're taking your life in your hands," she said of heavy traffic. Another local resident request- ed a berm in order to keep down noise. The planning commission will consider the issue at a future date. II 1 BUY NOW & SAVE!!!
