A Weblog?
The column to the right, is a news/editorial/comment column. It is a weblog, also know as a blog.

The weblog thing comes from www.blogger.com, which offers us a convenient way to manage the posting, administratively. You don't really need to know all of that, but we have included this explanation so that you won't be confused by the term "blog".

Another important topic here is that since the column includes editorials and comments, you can be sure that we are just exercising our free speech rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and as not yet abridged by a reactionary opportunistic vocal minority.

opinions, everybody's got one...
If you would like your opinion published here, forward it for consideration and editorial review to: info@delawoffice.com.
Or add a comment. Comments by: YACCS

We encourage the exchange of responsible ideas.

The family originally purchased the property from someone who was granted ownership of the land directly from William Penn.

Anchorage balances free speech with safety, in considering anti-panhandler legislation

 

With some modifications, the anti-panhandler ordinance became a safety ordinance. Rather than proposing an absolute ban, the revised, proposed ordinance would ban all such sign waving and begging activities within 4 feet of the curb.
