|A Delsea Drive day care center for 30 youths has been closed after air monitoring samples showed the presence of elevated levels of mercury.
The Kiddie Kollege center - for children ages 8 months to 13 years old - has been operating since January 2004 in a site formerly used to manufacture thermometers.
|On Monday, a search of the building's basement revealed actual silver beads of mercury, Frank said.

|"My head is spinning right now," offered Chuck Todano, a parent of a 4-year-old former Kiddie Kollege student. Todano said his son has been diagnosed as autistic.
"Is it autism or mercury poisoning?" he asked.
|Seven weeks after the mercury-contaminated Kiddie Kollege day-care center closed, a 5-year-old Franklin Township girl still has seizures, unexplained rashes, mysterious illnesses and peeling skin on her fingers and toes, which her attorney says are linked to inhaling the toxic metal.
The girl is among at least a dozen Kiddie Kollege children who still have elevated levels of mercury in their bodies, according to results of a second round of medical tests that were released in recent days to parents.
