    Sallie Mae is growing its customer service operation in New Castle County with 285 new jobs. The company will employ a total of 1,000 workers in the county. “We’re glad Sallie Mae has chosen to significantly expand its operations here in Delaware,” said Gov.

And we’re proud to support Sallie Mae, and the Delawareans who work there, as the company continues to put down roots here in our great state.” The new jobs are part of a deal with the Delaware Division of...

People on board were getting restless after being left without access to food or water during the long delay and eventually some passengers came up with the idea of ordering a pizza, Katz said. -snip Leary, a driver for Dom's Pizza in...
  • Muslims Take Over Senate Floor To Pray To Allah – Then This Veteran Steps In…

    The U.S. is currently at war with an ideology that is unbinding, and will not relent until the U.S. is defeated. Sadly, many within our own Government cannot see the truth behind this cold, hard fact, because they are blinded by political correctness. Comes now a story that proves case in point. Thank God at least one man in attendance, a veteran, called this spade a spade. Online media outlet Mr. Conservative relays the details of what happened from Right Wing News below: Two Muslim men took over the Delaware Senate floor this week to pray to Allah in an...

    Republican lawmakers in Delaware walked out of a legislative session Wednesday during a prayer reading from the Quran, with one returning later to call the reading from the Muslim holy book "despicable."

Lawson returned after the prayer had finished. An Air Force veteran who served a tour in Vietnam, he...

The company sent out notices Wednesday saying layoffs will occur at plants in north and south Philadelphia and in Wilmington, Delaware, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

  • Did Democrats Just Begin an Electoral Comeback by Winning in Delaware?

    The $64,000 question for Democrats seeking to fight back against Donald Trump and a Republican Congress between now and the 2020 elections is whether their recent problems in turning out their voters, especially in nonpresidential contests, can be changed by the energy of a burgeoning anti-Trump resistance. The first real answer to that question may have occurred this weekend in a special state-senate election in the “First State,” Delaware. And though it would be unwise to assume it to set a reliable pattern, in this one case Democrats passed the test. The contest was over a seat in a state-senate...

    As of Saturday night, the unofficial elections results being reported by the State of Delaware Department of Elections indicated Stephanie Hansen has won the special election for the District 10 seat vacated by now-Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long. With the win, Hansen, a Democrat, retains the party's majority control of the chamber and, in fact, the state. Delaware remains one of about five states where Democrats hold the legislature and the governor's seat. Hansen declared shortly before 9 p.m. that she'd defeated Republican John Marino and Libertarian Joe Lanzendorfer on Twitter. Unofficial totals from the Department of Elections said she won...

    SMYRNA, Del. (AP) -- Inmates at a Delaware prison took five corrections department workers hostage Wednesday, a move the inmates told a local newspaper was due to concerns about their treatment and the leadership of the United States. The hostage situation drew dozens of officers and law enforcement vehicles to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna and prompted a statewide lockdown of all prisons. One hostage was released Wednesday afternoon, but four remained in custody and negotiations were ongoing as the evening stretched on, authorities said. A preliminary investigation suggests the incident began around 10:30 a.m. when a...

General Washington hatched a daring plan to cross the Delaware River under the cover of darkness, march to Trenton and attack the Hessian outposts in and around Trenton. The boats to be used for the crossing were gathered earlier in the month in compliance with Washington’s orders, primarily as a defensive measure. Various types of boats were collected; most notable were the large, heavy Durham boats used to carry pig...

    We haven't really written much about the insane Theranos scandal, though we discussed it on our podcast. The whole story is pretty crazy -- involving a heavily hyped up company that appeared to basically be flat out lying to everyone about what it could do. The company still exists, but barely. The company's founder and CEO, who was plastered across magazine covers and compared frequently to Steve Jobs, has been banned from running a lab for two years, and the company is now facing a $140 million lawsuit from its biggest partner, Walgreens, who claims that Theranos repeatedly lied to...
