REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - State environmental officials have issued a water quality advisory at Rehoboth Beach after high levels of bacteria were found in the water.

Rehoboth Beach City Manager Sharon Lynn says that while swimming isn't banned, warning signs were posted Thursday on the back of lifeguard stands. The beach and ocean remain open.

Elevated bacteria levels were shown in a water sample taken Wednesday, the day before the Rehoboth area got over an inch of rain.

A NASA rocket was successfully launched this morning at 6:06 a.m. from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The Terrier-Improved Orion suborbital sounding rocket  carried student experiments.

On hand to watch the launch were more than 200 middle school, high school, community college and university students as part of Rocket Week at the flight facility.  

The rocket rose some 74 miles above the earth before coming down with a parachute in the Atlantic Ocean.

The next suborbital sounding rocket flight is set for mid-August.

A judge acquitted Caesar Goodson the van driver of all charges including "depraved-heart" murder on yesterday in Gray’s death.

The 25-year old Gray died of a spinal injury that he suffered while being transported after his arrest.

When Greg Burel tells people he's in charge of some secret government warehouses, he often gets asked if they're like the one at the end of the Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Ark of the Covenant gets packed away in a crate and hidden forever.

It was April 15, 2009, in the depths of the financial crisis. Elizabeth Warren was backstage at The Daily Show, about to make her national TV debut, but her head was not in the clouds.

It was in the toilet. She was throwing up.
