Could court officials visit the Hudson Farm in Berlin next month?


Perhaps.


Lawyers representing Alan and Kristin Hudson and Perdue Farms recently asked the federal court to come in person to the couple’s farm.


They argue that a visit would help the court understand the evidence and provide a firsthand look at the farm’s chicken houses, manure shed and cow pastures among other things.

Delaware & Maryland: In Top 20 States for Power Pollution

BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland and Delaware are among the nation's top 20 power plant polluters, according to new rankings by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Maryland ranked 19th in the rankings released Thursday, an improvement from fifth place the year before. Delaware rose one spot from 21st the year before to make it onto the top 20 list.

The new rankings are based on 2010 figures, and the NRDC says new standards imposed by the federal Environmental Protection Agency mean power plant pollution should drop over the next few years.
