Regulations to govern new industrial development in parts of Delaware‘s Coastal Zone are nearly ready to go.  But will the expected economic development boost follow when they’re officially implemented?

There’s a new book out  this summer that First State political junkies won’t want to miss.

It’s called “Byrd of Legislative Hall” and is the story of Bob Byrd, lobbyist and a former State Representative.

Byrd’s book, produced with the help of veteran Delaware political reporter Celia Cohen, offers an inside look at state politics through the lens of Byrd’s career.

Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele recently chatted with Byrd about writing the book and some of the stories it tells.

The University of Delaware is starting significant upgrades to its athletics infrastructure.

The school has talked before about these kind of improvements before, but UD intern contributor Dan Rosenfield explains why its working out this time and what it means for student-athletes.
