Then, according to Johnson, the owners of Tomato Sunshine re- ceived a permit from the Sussex Planning and Zoning office to put up a building on the site as they did at their former location north of the Food Lion Shopping Cen- ter. The project has been delayed by the unusual number of snow- falls, he noted. They have a year in which to complete erecting the old building.. "It's now out of my hands," Johnson said. "We did what we were supposed to do and the prop- erty owner did what he was sup- posed to do. Now it's up to Plan- ning and Zoning, although I know Brenda Abell and others probably won't be pleased when they're fin- ished with the building, which won't look at all like the decor at the new outlets" but a typical large roadside vegetable stand structure. Ms. Abell also complained of an "old truck without a motor" sit- ting on the site. While such may be the case, Johnson noted that it has an operating refrigeration unit used to keep the produce fresh when the business is in oper- ation, and that landscaping may take care of that problem when they get up and running. Vote Class, not Archer I would like to address the an- nouncement by Butch Archer that he wants to retain his seat on the Cape Henlopen School Board. Butch says he cares about the children and that he is concerned about class sizes at Cape High School. I can only speak for my- self, and from my own personal experience with Butch. I do not believe him. If he cares about class sizes at Cape Henlopen High School, it's the only school he cares about. He could have cared less about the overcrowded kindergarten classes at Shields Elementary. When I spoke to him about my concerns, he was rude and condescending. He did not want to be bothered with my questions or concerns. They were not important to him. After all, who am I? I'm a very concerned parent who has a five-year-old in a very crowded kindergarten class at Shields. I am grateful for the wonderful treatment at Shields. They have done well with what they have had to deal with. The problem is not at Shields. It's with school board members like Butch Archer who are all talk or promises and no action. I have no respect or trust for Mr. Archer. Mr. Archer has already served his term. It's time for him to step down. I feel he has become de- sensitized to the problems and needs that plague this district. On Saturday, May 11, my vote will go to Estie Class. Please be concerned about our children's education and come out and vote on May I I at Lewes Middle School, Rehoboth Elementary School and Milton Middle School. We have a vested interest in our children's education. Diana Smith Lewes. Thanks to donor The following letter was submit- ted to the Cape Gazette by an l l- year-old Dewey Beach girl, who, when unable to procure funds she requested from the Town of Dewey Beach for an Easter egg hunt in Dewey Beach which she is trying or organize, then took the initiative to contact Dewey busi- nesses and town employees and received an anonymous $10 dona- tion. Dear ???: Thank you for donating the $10 toward the Easter egg hunt. It was a great help toward burying eggs, candy and prizes for it. If more people donated money like you did, the hunt would be a great suc- cess. Of course, I am trying really hard to make that happen. I thank you and everyone else who donated something toward it. Shana Pollard Dewey Beach Clean up trash I see that Delmarva'Power and/or DEC is again trashing the beautiful wooded area by the An- gola light. Is there really no open land they can use and can they, this time, try cleaning up after they leave? The opposite side of Route 24, which they destroyed last time around, still looks like it belongs in a very poor third world country. These people profit from those of us who live and work here. The least they can do is try to maintain the surrounding area. Bill Atkins Rehoboth Beach I would like to thank the follow- ing people for their support of me in the March 3 Polar Bear Plunge for Delaware Special Olyfnpics. Along with my family friends and co-workers at Sussex Elemen- tary Consortium, the employees of the Cape Henlopen School Dis- trict and especially my athletes and parents of the Sussex De-Ter- minators, I would also like to thank the following businesses: Roadhouse Steak Joint, Midway Office and Art Supply, Delaware Cedar, Hazzard Auto Repair, Best Equipment, Best Ace Hardware, Lloyd's IGA, Wall's Cottages and Apartments, Prudential Gallo Re- alty, Angler's Fishing Center, Kids Ketch, Jerry's American Cafe, Midway Package Store, Top of the Line Janitorial Service, Copp's Seafood, Todd's Auto Center, Travis Signs and Designs, and Bluewater Ltd. Special thanks to Mary McGee, Terry and Kelly Stuchlik, Kim, K.C., Betty Lee and Terry Carmine and Rick, Debbie, Karin and Susan Simms. Because of all of your support, I was able to raise $1,900. Because of all of you, we had a brighter day for all the athletes. Peggy Carmine Lewes CAMP ARROWHEAD OFFERS DAY CAMP!
