MILLINGTON -- Who said everyone loves a parade?Residents of this historic Kent County town are learning how wrong that old saying is, as they grapple with a dispute about whether to allow a gay pride march in their midst.They also are chewing over the meaning of another chestnut, something about "the right of the people peaceably to assemble."An openly gay 21-year-old resident has sparked another skirmish in the nation's culture wars by declaring that he wants to hold a parade celebrating homosexuality through these picturesque streets at the headwaters of the Chester River.

Crown Central Petroleum Corp. has hired a financial adviser and broker to explore sale of its two Texas refineries and its terminal assets, a move that would make it solely a gasoline retailer, the company said yesterday. The Baltimore-based oil refiner and retail operator, which became a private company in March, has been considering the move for more than year. In May 2000, another financial adviser laid out two scenarios for the company: infuse more money into upgrading its refineries, or sell them.

MILLINGTON - It's a beautiful day in early fall. The kind that starts with a tiny shiver and blossoms into a sultry afternoon that whispers, "Play hooky." Jay Falstad steps from his home. But instead of taking several dozen strides to the shore of Unicorn Lake, he turns his back on a day of fishing and paces an equal number of steps to his new studio. The former newspaper advertising salesman is in the early stages of a new career, one of those brainstorms that makes you slap your forehead and say, "Why didn't I think of that?"

MILLINGTON -- The sun was setting when the three black women in the old Plymouth Horizon rolled past the few dozen houses and family-owned stores that make up Millington, a little Kent County town that has suddenly found itself in the spotlight. Soon after leaving Millington, one of the women would end up dead. Charged with her killing would be two men who only minutes before her death had called police to look for her car. The day began pleasantly enough for the women. After a day of shopping across the border in Delaware, they passed through Millington about the same time as David and Daniel Starkey, brothers who had enjoyed their own successful-enough day hunting deer.

MILLINGTON -- Anthony Guessregen sees himself as just another farmer trying to eke out a living from his land. But others in this rural Kent County community, including some farmers, say the 35-year-old former fisherman from Long Island, N.Y., gives agriculture a bad name.Guessregen and his wife, Patricia, plan to raise 3,000 hogs on their 313-acre farm nearby. Rather than wallow in the mud, though, these porkers will spend four months bulking up in stalls inside a "finishing house" before being trucked to slaughter.
