Sharp said Joe Hudson, a mem- ber of Beebe Medical Center's Board of Directors, is cooperating in the benefit. He is providing the site which has become a large and highly visible venue over the past several years because of the annu- al World Championship Punkin' Chunkin' held the first Saturday of each November. "One of the problems Joe has had in the past was getting the crops cleared from the site in time for Punkin' Chunkin'," said Sharp. "He said this year, because of the concert planned, he won't plant crops, but will concentrate instead on developing the site for large events like this one.

In recent years, Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach and Dewey Beach have all raised concerns over the issue of cabarets. The towns cried foul over the idea, saying that cabarets would lead to more drinking, more rowdiness and more problems for resorts trying to boost their image as quiet, family towns. On Tuesday, the Association of Coastal Towns (ACT) took a strong stance against new legislation to allow cabarets. The group voted unanimously to oppose that legisla- tion, although many coastal towns already have anti-cabaret ordinances. Representatives from Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, South Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island attend- ed the March 4 meeting in the Dewey Beach Lifesaving Station. They worried that cabarets can exclude minors (unlike a restauran0 and don't have to serve a full menu.
