10 FRIDAY. MARCH 2- MONDAY. MARCH 5. 2012 NEWS Cape Gazette Letters )) Continued from page 8 the beach tax money so they can spend it improperly as general fund revenue. It is protected and can only be used for beach replen- ishment. It was stated at the last meeting that we are capped out on our borrowing ability so we can't borrow to buy more parking me- ters, but they have come up with the ingenious plan that if we lease them we can get around the bor- rowing aspect. A lease is the same technically as a loan as it has to be paid and is yet another bill that the town can't afford. Hanson even stated that the referendum item on borrowing that the people voted on had not gone to the Gen- eral Assembly so they could change it! No, you can't. They need to worry more about what they actually need rather than just what they want. Hanson recently, possibly with illegal ramifications, signed a matching grant with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control that our acting town manager/fmance director refused to sign because, as he stated, the town could not afford it. This had never been dis- cussed or voted on at any meeting. The mayor alone does not have that authority to act on this type of spending, but has now obligat- ed the town to having to pay $25,000 that we can't afford. I am not disgruntled, don't have too much time on my hands, and yes, the town is my concern. I hold three business licenses in this town and I care deeply about its future. I don't want to fight, but I am not going to stand by and al- low this council to continue to harm Dewey Beach. As long as this group continues to behave the way their counterparts in Wash- ingron behave with no regard for doing things the proper and legal way, continue to violate FOIA rules, state laws, regulations of the town, continue to hold improperly staged meetings, emall meetings and call unnecessary special meet= ings to discuss in secret what should be discussed in public, I will continue to monitor what they do, and so should others who care. I don't think it is asking too much to ask that our elected offi- cials follow all aspects of the law. A commissioner's-job is to create laws, not to run the town, and most importantly not interfere with ks employees. Dell Tush former mayor of Dewey Beach Latest update on Harry and Sparky Sincerest thanks to the Cape Gazette for publishing the heart- breaking story of Princess, the beautiful pit bull mix, and the wonderful, retired folks who stepped outside of themselves, picked her wounded, dehydrated and starving self out of a ditch and nursed her back to health. Their rewards may not come during this lifetime, but, surely there may be another star that has been lighted in heaven with all their names on it! Today, I called and offered to foster Princess and heard the good news! Too bad Delaware outlawed the whipping post! Anyone found using a dog, cat, cattle or innocent animal of any kind as target prac= rice; hanging innocent waterfowl by the necks from bushes, etc. are great candidates for such! Harry and Sparky have a home at the Re- hoboth Inn until April 22. I have opened a short-term account ti- tled 'Harry and Sparky' at PNC Bank. Harry began working part- time, and as he says, "I have used muscles I didn't remember hav- ing!" He and Sparky have to walk several miles to and from the iob. There are those who are con- tributing monetarily and in a mul- titude of ways to show Harry that they believe in his ability to be an overcomer. As he told me this week, "Maxine, I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the ef- forts in our behalf. Sparky has had the shelter he deserves and I've been able to improve health wise being off of the street." In all the time I have known Harry Cresser, I have never known him to ask for anything. And, many people that Harry has met who are walking with difficulty, have heard these words from him, "Let me do something for you - carve you a cane to make walking easier." And, carve he does! Pastor Maxine McWhorter Ungerbuehhr Safe Harbor Ministries Princess living fairy tale come true We would like to take this time to thank everyone who helped Princess, the dog who was shot. Princess has been adopted - or should I say she adopted a young man and his mother. She walked up to their house, walked in, sniffed around and picked her spot on the sofa. There were licks, hugs, kisses and tears and huge Dance Moves and Manners 302-222-3755 amounts of love for her. PrinceSs' recovery is due to: the care from the Savannah Animal Hospital doctors and staffl Melissa Ro- driguez of Pampered Pet Salon and Angela Coverdale Ware, who took it upon themselves to set up the recovery funds for her; Melis- sa Steele, reporter for the Cape. Gazette; Diane H. who visited, brought her toys, leashes, etc. and called every day; Abby Webb, who offered to transport her to her for- mer home; and Nancy, who told her daughter and grandson (whom Princess adopted). There are so many who gave money to help her. You know who you are. There are added stars in your crowns for your love, prayers and donations. Thank you to each and every one. We love you all. To those who hurt or just left her there - remember, love, real hon- est love, touches all and paybacks come to all. God bless each and every one.
