Battered by years of corporate departures, Delaware elected officials bragged as if they'd won the lottery when DuPont Co. and Dow Chemical Co. said the new corporation they are forming to sell pesticides and seeds will have world headquarters not at its Iowa-based crop seeds group, nor at Dow's Indianapolis pesticides business, but at DuPont's Chestnut Run office complex near Wilmington. Yet it's not clear this will add any Delaware jobs. DuPont and Dow plan more cost cuts in advance of their merger later this year.

A pest-control company has agreed to pay $10 million in penalties for using a dangerous pesticide at a U.S. Virgin Islands resort where a Delaware family fell critically ill, federal prosecutors said Tuesday. Terminix International Co. LP and its U.S. Virgin Islands operation agreed to plead guilty to four counts of violating federal pesticide law in a deal with prosecutors that still needs to be approved by a judge. According to information filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of the Virgin Islands, the Wilmington family was staying at the Sirenusa resort in St. John last March when they were exposed to methyl bromide, which had been sprayed in an adjacent unit.

Just a few weeks after it was founded in 2008, the Philadelphia architecture firm Digsau landed its first commission. It came from the Challenge Program, a Wilmington nonprofit that teaches construction skills to high school dropouts. What they wanted was a building that combined a workshop, where trainees could master table saws and lathes, with classrooms, where they could attend GED classes and counseling sessions. What could be more straightforward? Any half-decent architect could knock that out in a matter of months.

A ship takes shape along the Christiana River in Wilmington. Students from a Wilmington-area technical high school watched work yesterday at a special shipyard built for replicating the Kalmar Nyckel, a 17th-century Dutch ship that brought early settlers to Wilmington. The ship landed its first settlers in 1638. The replica, being built by the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, is to be launched in the fall.
