Internet connection free at The Circle Georgetown's historic Circle has long been the scenic gateway to Delaware's resort communities, a gathering spot for outdoor lunches, even a backdrop for the occasional wedding. Now it's a Wi-Fi hot spot for computer users to connect to the World Wide Web. Sussex County Council and the town of Georgetown have joined to provide free, wireless Internet access. The Wi-Fi broadcast, with coverage immediately over The Circle at the center of town, has been in place for more than six months. Town and County officials want to remind residents and visitors that the connection is there. All people have to do is connect. "A lot of business goes on here on The Circle everyday, and the Internet has fast become an essential means to do business, both locally and around the world," Georgetown town manager Gene Dvornick said. "We want the public to know the Internet is here, and we want them to use it. Best of all, it's free." Eddie Sparpaglione, director of the County's Information Systems office, said an early offering of the public wireless connection was made available in 2007. The service piggybacks on the county's computer network. With The Circle such a high-traffic area, the town and county wanted to promote the Wi-Fi availability. Users must have a wireless capable computer, and agree to terms of use. The broadcast is identified as "The-Circle" and will appear on any wireless computer.

This may not be the last time they do it, as much fun as the members seemed to be having.” John H. Benson, who was tragically injured in a diving accident, is getting a lot of community support and prayers from the community. There is to be a chicken barbecue on Saturday, Aug. 16, at Bargain Bills Flea Market from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., and the cost is $6. John , who just turned 21, certainly can use our support. The Laurel Chamber of Commerce began moving into its new building on Monday, Aug. 11. It is in the old Conner’s Drug Store building on East Market Street. New chamber secretary is Joyce Ramsey. More on this later. The Delmar VFW opened for breakfast Monday morning and the old “round table” was fully occupied. Life goes on but Linda, you are missed. Friday, Sept. 12, the Laurel Alumni Sports and Fans group will meet for dinner again, at the Georgia House in Laurel at 4 p.m. for social and 5 p.m. for dinner. Of course, you can call Craig Littleton to be included in the group. Last year, 50 or so people showed up and all had a good time, some more than others, as Craig was in top form. Or if

you are like me, you might think that it was low form. His number to make reservations is 462-7450. The other day I was in The Insurance Market Financial Center in Laurel, waiting for a brief chat with John Downes. For those of you who do not know, the financial center is in the old post office building, on Central Avenue in Laurel. What a beautiful, beautiful building inside. Memories came back to me of visits to that post office as a mere kid of perhaps 10 or 11. I was always selling something seeds, TV Guides, greeting cards or magazines, and I was always anxious for my shipment to arrive. My patience was not always the best, as I often made several trips, sure that today it would arrive. One thing I forgot to do in those younger years was to enjoy the beauty of that historic post office. Am I trying to tell you something? Do we get older and wiser? I had better not go there as I will get plenty of replies on that one, but I do know we appreciate things more as we get older. Now, I should appreciate Dick Whaley a whole lot!
