It was a packed community meeting at The Green on the campus of the University of Delaware yesterday after it was first reported that three nooses were found hanging outside a residence hall.

Those turned out to be paper lanterns from a previous event.

At a Millville, New Jersey glass company plant a noose was allegedly placed on their property where two African Americans from Delaware were working construction last month.

The Millville police are investigating the allegations by 43-year old Kyle Winters of New Castle and 46 year old Vance Thorpe from Wilmington that the noose was placed at the Nipro Glass site where they had been working.

Nipro issued a statement saying that the allegations, if true, were contrary to its policies and training provided to contractors it hires.

ATLANTIC, Va. (AP) - Wallops Flight Facility employees will be briefed on NASA's investigation into the discovery of a noose at one of the Virginia center's buildings.

Chris Scolese, director of the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., will discuss the findings with Wallops employees Thursday.
