WILMINGTON, Del. - It is a sign showdown in Delaware, with businesses battling to come out on top.It all started last year, with a local automotive center declaring itself the winner of sign war 2021.

Then, in late August, a new battle began. A rematch in the war of words.Take a drive down Kirkwood Highway or Limestone Road in Wilmington and the sign war is clear.

It’s a war of signs between Crossroads Restaurant and Paul Campanella’s Tire and Auto Center. The two businesses poking fun at each other on their written display signs."We have a team of comedians that work in the basement round the clock to do this," Crossroads Restaurant owner Matt Tyrawski jokingly commented.It is a collaboration between employees at both businesses and a lot more goes into the snarky signs than one might think."We’re kind of limited on how many letters we can put up," Will Maggio, with Paul Campanello’s Auto and Tire Center, said. "It’s really a lot of thinking and wordsmithing going into it."Of course, everyone wants to know is it a friendly feud?

Or, is there more to it?"It’s just fun. They are punching right back at us. Maybe a little harder, but that’s perfect. It just makes is more fun to do," Maggio remarked.Premier Wine and Spirits has now jumped in with some sassy signage, along with Goldey-Beacom College, down the street and the community loves it."I think it’s really cracking me up," laughed Wilmington resident Tom Smallwood. "It’s making me laugh.""I think it’s fun, when you slow down enough to read them.

New controversial anti-corruption bill proposes to create commission, enabling it to make arrests without warrants
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Ministry of Justice has introduced a new controversial anti-corruption bill that would see the creation of an independent commission that is empowered to carry out arrests without a warrant or a magesterial order, for officials who are suspected to have carried out an offence under the proposed anti-corruption act. The Minister of Justice, Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa, speaking to News 1st said that the bill was drafted based upon the UN convention against corruption, which has been ratified by Sri Lanka in 2004. The Minister said that the existing bribery and corruption commission does not have the power that is proposed in the current bill, while it is important to make the commission independent without any political party or any affiliations. In addition, the Minister said that it has been proposed to dissolve the existing laws with regard to assets and liabilities, which will be included within the proposed bill. Moreover, whistleblower rights will also be protected, the Minister said. According to the bill, any authorized officer of the Commission may without an order from a Magistrate and without a warrant arrest any person suspected of committing an offence under the provisions of this Act. The Minister emphasized that this is NOT a quasi-judicial power, as the Police too is able to arrest people without a warrant. Section (58)1 of the proposed bill highlights that "an authorised officer of the Commission may apply in writing to the High Court for a warrant authorizing the covert monitoring of any conduct and recording of any communication if such officer has reasonable grounds to suspect or believe that a person has committed, is committing or is about to commit an offence under this Act,".The
