Updated: Bomb Threat Cleared At Appoquinimink High School On First Day Of School But Student Taken By Helicopter Due To “Long Fall”

Appoquinimink High School

Updated, 2:53pm: The Delaware State Police cleared the bomb threat around 11am.  But a student had to be taken by a medical helicopter due to injuries sustained by a “long fall” according to this article from First State Update.

The first day of school. A time for renewal and transition, not bomb threats. But that happened this morning at Appoquinimink High School. Parents were alerted right away by the district’s Public Information Officer, Lilian Miles. What the alert didn’t provide was information on where the student were evacuated too. This is no joking matter and I sincerely hope this was just a prank and not something more serious. If it was a prank, and the perp is caught, that is a federal crime. I also hope this isn’t a return to the national string of bomb threats America faced in 2015.

Burger Girl Better Run Like The Wind Blows…Tropical Storm Bill Is Here!

Burger Girl, Firefly

The Dover Police have literally just told everyone, all 90,000 attendees and workers, and probably the bands, they need to evacuate the Firefly Music Festival due to Tropical Storm Bill coming their way.  As I sit here, in my nice air-conditioned, non-Delaware killer mosquito home, I do hope Burger Girl gets somewhere safe and very soon!
