Morning Star is seven years old - Morning Star Publications Inc. is now seven years old. This issue of the Seaford Star is the first of our eighth year of publication. A new nameplate design helps us to mark this occasion. The designer is Bryant Paul Richardson. Morning Star is locally owned. It started in 1996 with the Seaford Star and then the Laurel Star weekly community newspapers. The next year it added the monthly Salisbury Business Journal and the Morning Star Business Report. We added the U.S. Flag to our nameplate after Sept. 11, 2001. It reflects our pride in our nation and the men and women who serve to keep it free.

National Day of Prayer
Thursday, May 1, is the 52nd annual National Day of Prayer. This provides an opportunity for members of our community to unite as one nation, under God, to ask for God’s mercy and blessing on our country. In Seaford the day will be observed with a ceremony at the Parks & Recreation Building on Virginia Avenue. While officially called “Meet at City Hall,” with the construction project going on next to the City Hall Annex the planners decided it would be safer to change the location. The ceremonies will take place from 12:20 to 12:40 p.m. All are welcome.
