8 - CAPE GAZETI, Friday, March 6 tters Continued from page 6 ommendations. They listened and considered the RSPTO's propos- als, as well as discussing them in a thoughtful and prudent manner. Additionally, the board gave the Rehoboth parents ample opportu- nity to ask questions and voice their concerns regarding these is- sues. Their patience and deliberate- ness was a good example of the "spirit of democracy" in action. This gives me great confidence that if the board continues their ef- forts in earnest, they will go a long way in ensuring that all of Cape's schools are fully staffed by the be- ginning of the school year.

Gina Hunsicker Diana Tylecki Bayside Health Association Thanks for a great health fair The following letter was sent to Dr. Steven Berlin and the staff at Bayside Health Associates, with a copy submitted to the Cape Gazette for publication. Thank you for your insight in sponsoring, at your own expense and time, the wonderful health fair this past Saturday. After setting our table up with the Nikken magnets and other products, we wondered just how many people would attend. We were pleasantly surprised when someone gave us a figure that ap- proximately 1,500 were in atten- dance. We felt that all the displays were well done and informative. Although we did not get a chance to meet all the physicians and staff of Bayside Health Asso- ciates, those we did meet made us feel welcome and were very friendly. In fact, a couple of the doctors offered to help carry our products to the vehicles while we were closing down. As a native Delawarean and a local business owner, I am proud to see that there is such a high cal- iber of medical professionals who are willing to do more than prac- rice their profession and honestly believe in promoting total well- ness. Our sincere thanks and appreci- ation.

Peggy Carmine Lewes We could learn from our youth My husband and I were chaper- ones for a Valentine's Day Dance at the Cape Henlopen High School. We believe that it is very impor- tant that the young people attend- Cape students thank board for teacher Ff,or, i, mg this dance, their parents and the communities involved should be aware of the pleasure it gave us to be with these great young peo- ple. They were truly ladies and gentlemen. They treated each oth- er with respect and enjoyed being together. Perhaps we could learn from them. Dave and Evelyn MeManus Lewes Thanks for 40th birthday surprise. I would like to thank my co- workers at Sussex Consortium for a wonderful "40" birthday sur- prise you gave me. Words can't express the love you show me, and I thank God each day for the chance to work with the best there is. I would also like to thank the students for their letters and cards. They really touched my heart. Also, I'd like to thank Greg and Gail and Bryan Mack, and the Polar Bear band. The good thing about turning 40 is that some of you I'll never catch up to, but it will be fun watching those golden years catch you - 50, 55, 60 - major speed limits. Peggy Carmine Lewes Barefootin' Continued from page 7 Georgetown Oyster Eat. This year's knife brought a record amount: Auctioneer Charles West brought the gavel down when no one would top Eric Porter's high bid of $1,350. That's $500 more than the $850 Georgetown Mayor Steve Pepper paid for the 60th anniversary knife that Ellinsswo{th built for the t1'/,mt., (Pepper do- nated the knife back to the fire de- partment.) This year's knife, as the past three, was com- posed of a blade mount- ma,moswomm ed in a handle cut from a Delaware white-tail antler. FdlialWorda :dm ,mm into horn and this year's showed an oyster tonger working from the gunnel of a traditional Chesapeake Bay work- boat. The blade, cut THE from the heavy steel of a crosscut saw over the years," said Ellingsworth during a break in last Friday night's festivities. "Some I've given away, some I've sold. I learn from each one I do and think the next one's always a little bet- ter than the last." Ellingsworth said the antlers come from deer he's killed, from deer his friends have killed, or from sheds found in the woods. "Deer shed their antlers each year, use." The oyster knife tradition began in 1986 when Lewes blacksmith John Ellsworth made a knife to be auctioned off to add to the night's proceeds. That first knife brought $135. Emory Short of Sand Hill took over the knife-making tradition a few years later before he passed it on to Ellingsworth.
