Costa Rican identified as man killed by train By JERRY HAGER Staff writer A 29-year-old Costa Rican, who spent the last seven years caring for children at a Newark day care center, was identified Wednesday as the man who was killed by a train Sunday near Newark. Police have listed the death as an apparent suicide. The victim, Luis R. Lobo of 111 Eikton Road, was identified by coworkers who called police after he didn't show up for work Monday, state police said. Lobo had worked at the Newark Day Nursery Association Inc. for the last seven years as a cook and part-time teacher, said Dianne Nichols, executive director of the center. He also was employed as a part-time cook at the Ivystone 2 Restaurant in the Newark Shopping Center. He had been having personal ' problems for the last two months, Mrs. Nichols said. Police believe those problems caused him to step into the path of a 61-car freight train on the Baltimore & Ohio railroad tracks near Casho Mill Road about 8:20 p.m. Sunday. Police said he was found with a rosary clutched in his hand. Lobo came to the Newark area from the Central American country of Costa Rica in 1974 with a Peace Corps volunteer he had met in his hometown of San Rafael de Gua-tuso, Mrs. Nichols said. "His first job in this country(was at the center," she said.

He loved the children, and they loved him. . . . When he had some free time, he went to the classes or out to the playground to be with the children. Or he would go help someone else at the center who wasn't finished their work. The center was the most important part of his life. "He would share traditional Costa Rican dishes with the children and teach them Spanish words for food and Spanish songs," Mrs. Nichols said. The center, located in the First Presbyterian Church of Newark, has 17 employees and about 55 children, she said. Lobo knew and got along well with all of them, she said. "We all loved him. We really feel bad about his death." Lobo was dead at the scene. Police said the state medical examiner's office reported the cause of death as head and internal injuries. He was not carrying identification papers when he died, and police had no clues to his, identity until Monday. Mrs. Nichols said she and other workers at the center became concerned when Lobo failed to show for work, so they called the police. Some workers from the center later identified his body. Lobo's family lives in Costa Rica. Mrs. Nichols said he visited them last month. A memorial service appropriate for children will be held Friday evening at 7 in Memorial Hall of the First Presbyterian Church of Newark at 292 W. Main St. Funeral services will be held in San Rafael de Gua'tuso, Costa Rica. DAST looks to hike rates by 10 percent By SANDY DENNISON Staff writer Handicapped Delawareans will pay 10 percent more to ride DAST starting Aug. 1 if a proposed rate increase goes into effect. The increase would be the second in 13 months for the Delaware Administration for Specialized Transportation. Social service agencies such as senior centers would be affected most by the increase since they usually pick up the tab for their clients' rides. If the rate increase is approved by state Secretary of Transportation Kermit H. Justice, DAST's charge for a one-zone trip will go up from $3.84 to $4.25. There are 10 zones in the state, and each is equivalent to about 30 minutes' travel time. DAST's hourly fee would increase from $13.42 to $14.75. Paying by the hour rather than by the zone is more economical for agencies that need transportation for a group of people at one time. The higher rates are necessary because of inflation, according to DAST director James H. Gillard. He noted that transportation-related costs for such items as fuel and parts have been outpacing inflation in other segments of the economy. DAST's operating budget for the new fiscal year that began July 1 is a little more than $1.4 million, up from $1.2 million in 1980-81. Fares pay two-thirds of that, and state and federal subsidies cover the rest. As costs are going up, income is going down, Gillard said. Social service agencies, looking for ways to trim their own budgets, are using the service less. DAST carries about 600 riders a day, said Gillard, compared with 1,000 a day last year at this time. One factor in DAST's increasing costs - although not the most significant one, Gillard said is increasing labor costs. All DAST employees, including the unionized drivers, are getting an 8 percent pay raise this year. Negotiations with the DAST division of Local 842 of the Amalgamated Transit Union ended late last month, and a new three-year con- On the record Births Wilmington Medical Center General Division CARLTON - Mvronna, 101 Winder Road, Garfield Park, July I, son.

William Lvle Henretty, Wilmington, and Charge lodged against truck driver dropped A charge of driving an unregistered motor vehicle lodged two months ago against the driver of a Harvey & Harvey Co. trash truck has been dropped in Magistrate Court 15, Philadelphia Pike. The driver, Robert Cammile, 38, of Simonds Drive, Simonds Gardens, told police the morning of May 1 that his brakes failed at the intersection of Brandywine Boulevard and Edgemoor Road. In the ensuing four-vehicle accident, police said, seven pupils on a school bus were injured. Police at the time said the charge was filed because the truck's registration had expired. Mary Ann Fleiner of the trash company said , the charge resulted because a clerk mistakenly typed a "B" on the registration card instead of an "8." A spokesman for court 15 said Wednesday that the charge was dismissed June 26 aftethe firm produced a revised registration card. tract went into effect July 1. Most of DAST's 25 full-time drivers have more than four years experience and thus make the top wage. For them, the 8 percent increase means a raise from $6.04 an hour to $6.52. ,, , The drivers agreed to accept the same pay increase as state employees in the, following two vears. DAST's non-union employees already get the same yearly increases as state employees do under the merit system. State employees also got an 8 percent raise this year. The most significant part of the contract from the drivers' point of view was the establishment of a pension plan, according to Glenn R. Murray, president of the local. "They have been working for 10 or 11 years with no pension at all," he said. The plan calls for a 2 percent contribution from employees and a 1 percent contribution from DAST. The details will be worked out before the plan goes into effect July 1, 1982. There will be a five-year moratorium on payouts after the plan takes effect. DAST now has no retired drivers, and none are anticipated within the next five years. The new contract also calls for some improvements for DAST's 11 part-time drivers. They, too, received an 8 percent raise, bringing their wages to $4.91 an hour. For the first time, they will be paid overtime for working more than eight hours in one day. DAST will also supply their uniforms, as it does for full-time drivers. A public hearing on the proposed rate increase is tentatively scheduled for July 30 at 10 a.m. in the center conference room of the Department of Transportation building on U.S. 1 13 in Dover, across from the Blue Hen Mall. Those who plan to attend are requested to write to DAST at P.O. Box 1347, Dover, Del. 19901, or call 736-3278 before July 22. Gillard plans to cancel the hearing if no one expresses any interest.
