Hebner of Indian Field in New Castle County, who did not seek re-election. Barnes, who was majority whip for the last two years, must be officially voted into office by the full House when it convenes in January.

The state Department of Environmental Protection said yesterday that about 64,000 people in southern New Jersey have been drinking water from public water supplies that contain unsafe levels of radium. The agency ordered nine water suppliers in Atlantic, Cumberland and Sussex Counties to close their wells, drill new ones, or provide treatment for the contamination. The DEP said suppliers can continue to deliver the radium-tainted water to their customers for up to two years as long as they immediately begin plans to correct the problem.

HOPATCONG, N.J. - A North Jersey man who allegedly stole various vehicles so he could drive home after drinking at local bars is now facing numerous charges. Police said David Stowe, 33, burned two of the vehicles in a wooded area near his home in Sussex County. But he didn't burn the third because he knew the vehicle's owner. Authorities said that the last theft occurred March 1, when Stowe allegedly broke into two cars and stole items before driving off in a friend's pickup truck.

Never mind that Delaware is in the grip of colonial-period fervor as it celebrates its ratification 200 years ago of the United States Constitution. For residents of Sussex County in lower Delaware - or "slower Delaware," as it is contemptuously referred to by some upper Delawareans - civil war once again has broken out between the North and the South. The first salvo was fired last week by an anonymous caller to the Delaware State News, based in Dover, Kent County. The woman, who told the paper she was from Dover, responded to an article in the Wilmington News-Journal newspapers that quoted several Sussex Countians as complaining that the $75 ticket price to Monday evening's Bicentennial Ball is too high.

In Sussex County, the state's northwest corner, Republicans yesterday felt a rumble from the south. It had come in the person of U.S. Rep. James J. Florio, South Jersey's most popular Democrat, who had campaigned for a Sussex County freeholder candidate named Michael La Rose. On Tuesday, La Rose recorded the biggest Democratic victory in Republican- dominated Sussex County in recent memory, and, he said, much of the credit belonged to Florio. Florio, La Rose said, stepped into a fight between Sussex County officials and the governor's office over a plan to put radium-tainted soil from Essex County into sand and gravel pits in Sussex County.

State officials were bracing for more flooding after torrential rains hammered parts of northwest New Jersey over the weekend, leaving debris in creeks and boulders in roads, knocking out water lines, and forcing hundreds of residents to evacuate their homes. Early damage estimates were at least $7.2 million for public facilities and up to $100 million when homes are included. Gov. Whitman signed an executive order yesterday declaring a state of emergency in Sussex and Morris Counties, and asked federal officials to begin preliminary damage assessments, which could declare those parts of the state a disaster area.

As New Jersey's fourth consecutive bear hunt begins Monday, state game officials say the hunts have helped stabilize a growing population and seem to be culling the most troublesome bears. Animal protection groups, however, continue to question the accuracy of the department's data and have not quelled their criticism of the six-day hunt, or the practice of bear-baiting. The hunt, which begins before dawn, will take place in parts of Sussex, Warren, Morris, Bergen, Somerset, and Hunterdon Counties.

Gov. Corzine says he is not sure whether hunting helps control the state's thriving black-bear population. As a result, he has not signed off on regulations authorizing the state's third bear hunt in 35 years. "There's no evidence this has been a good control device," Corzine said. "I haven't seen anything that changes my mind on this. " Some lawmakers, however, say the governor is jeopardizing the state's residents. Yesterday, Sens. Robert Littell and Anthony Bucco and Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose, all Republicans who represent sections of northwestern New Jersey, blasted Corzine for his inaction.
