It’s a mad dash for the Atlantic Ocean as more than 1,800 people take part in the annual Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics on the beach in Rehoboth Sunday afternoon. More than $300,000 was raised in the event. Many local people were among the brave souls who jumped in the freezing water. See additional photos on page 10.

Nanticoke Hospital Professional Building parking lot relocated - Nanticoke Memorial Hospital’s Professional building parking lot has been relocated due to the construction of the new Cancer Care Center. The Professional building, located on the west-side of the hospital, contains offices for several Nanticoke physicians. Parking for patients of Professional building physicians is now located on the hospital main campus. In preparation for the additional volume of cars, the hospital recently added a new “Professional Building Only” parking lot and expanded parking on the south side of the facility. According to Barbara Young, Administrative Director at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, “To accommodate the increased volume in parking, several employees have volunteered to park at one of our offsite lots and with the addition of the future parking garage, our parking capacity will increase by nearly 35 percent.”
