Walking wounded in Sussex County

January 6, 2011

The walking wounded – Dave Baker and J. Everett Moore.

Sussex County Council chambers is slowly becoming the room of the walking wounded, and it’s beginning to creep around the council table.

First, County Administrator Dave Baker fell off his deck Thanksgiving Day, broke a bone in his kneecap and has been on crutches ever since. Now, county attorney J. Everett Moore is sporting an eye patch following unexpected eye surgery to start off the new year. He said someone must have been playing a cruel joke on him during the Tuesday, Jan. 4 council meeting, as he had to read a stack of letters –many more than normal – to council.

Because the two sit side-by-side at the table, Councilman Sam Wilson might start worrying a little since he is third in line.
