John's Call, the 10-year-old gelding from Maryland, will bypass the Sussex Handicap tomorrow at Delaware Park and run instead in the Man o' War Stakes on Sept. 8 at Belmont Park, trainer Tom Voss said yesterday. Voss said he was concerned about the condition of Delaware Park's turf course and also wanted to give John's Call another week to recover from his last-place finish Aug. 11 in a Saratoga stakes in which he bled from the lungs for the first time. Voss since has breezed John's Call for the first time on Lasix and will use the anti-bleeding medicine at Belmont as the gelding tries to be the oldest horse to win a Grade I non-steeplechase race.

Sussex Elementary School in Essex will be closed for six to eight weeks while asbestos is removed from the building and, beginning tomorrow, students will attend classes at five locations in the area, school officials have said.The school has been closed since Friday, when routine tests found higher-than-acceptable levels of asbestos fibers in the air. Subsequent tests showed that asbestos sprayed on steel beams in the roof has made its way into the building."We went in there [Monday] in a very aggressive mode, and used fans and a leaf-blower to really disturb the area," Keith D. Kelley, Baltimore County's assistant superintendent for facilities, said yesterday.

GEORGETOWN, Del. - Sussex County officials have approved a drastically smaller version of a disputed community that opponents feared would overwhelm crowded roads in Delaware beach towns and threaten fragile inland bays just north of Ocean City. The project, proposed for an 885-acre site just west of Fenwick Island, was to include 2,900 homes and more than 200,000 square feet of commercial space. In a 4-1 to one vote yesterday, the County Council approved 1,700 units and limited commercial development to 170,000 square feet.

Standing on Route 1 near Rehoboth, Del., witnessing an ocean of people surge over acres of tax-free outlet stores, you'd never guess that the locals call this place "Slower, Lower Delaware."Sometimes, even a well-mannered beach resort like Rehoboth can seem too hectic. Traveling a slower road through the rest of Delaware's Sussex County can fill more than one weekend with adventure. "Inland Sussex County is the Delaware you never knew," says Millsboro shop owner Pete Marconi. Eight years ago, Marconi's signature T-shirts first publicized the county's calmer approach to life.

LONDON -- Who said that every time an English bird open his beak he makes some other English bird despise him?Well, nobody actually. But Alan Jay Lerner did say something once remarkably similar, about Englishmen, in "My Fair Lady."His subject was accents, and the way British people speak, differently one from the other according to region and class, and how this whole country is divided by a common language.But birds with accents? Who would have thought that?Lance Workman certainly didn't when he began recording the songs of robins in his native Wales, and then those in Sussex, far removed in the south of England.

LONDON -- The Irish Republican Army stepped up its campaign of terror on the British mainland yesterday with another bomb attack in the heart of London's tourist and theater district.Five men were wounded when a bomb went off in The Sussex, an ornate pub in Upper St. Martin's Lane near Covent Garden.It was the eighth bombing in London in the past six days.Less than 10 minutes before the blast, a London radio station received a call from a person who gave a code word used by the Provisional IRA.But the caller said only that the bomb had been planted "in the Leicester Square area," too broad an area for the police to clear.

Missing ceiling tiles that exposed dangerous asbestos were not replaced for months at Sussex Elementary because school officials had faulty information about the location of asbestos in the building.A review of a 1988 report concerning Sussex, on which the school relied to pinpoint asbestos dangers, showed that the inspection failed to identify a beam sprayed with asbestos.A Kansas contractor, Hall-Kimbrell Environmental Services, was paid approximately $1 million by Baltimore County to assess asbestos contamination in all 147 public schools, officials said.

The air is clear at Sussex Elementary School, but a troubled wind still blows.The Essex school, closed last winter because of high asbestos levels, will open Wednesday with a new interior. And more than 500 Sussex students, most of whom finished the past school year at five separate sites, will be under one roof again."The building's fixed. We're ready to go," said Robert Sutton, who was in his first year as principal when unacceptably high asbestos levels were discovered in various parts of the building in January.
