McCabe Continued from page 10 to operate under one permit. They benefit and the public benefits. It's a balanced approach I'm real- ly working on." Few real bad guys He said the last two years have confirmed for him: his, belief that in .the vast majority of cases there really are no bad guys. McCabe said that he feels that the last 25 years - "ever since the first Earth Day" - have produced a real change in American industry. "Industry now accepts its obliga- tion to protect the environment and it's not just trying to tear down the laws, We're working toward common sense solutions. At the same time I think the Envi- ronmental Protection Agency is realizing that one size doesn't fit all and that it's better to use flexi- bility to achieve desired results." He also noted that EPA supports mentoring programs to help small companies. "Rather than just levying fines against large compa- nies when they violate," Said Mc- Cabe, "sometimes we have them supply one of their engineers to help a smaller company in terms of environmental engineering." McCabe said he was particular- ly satisfied by the Inland Bays grass planting project because of th e promise it offers of helping to restore good health to the system. McCabe lives in the Wilming-. ton area and works at the regional office in Philadelphia. "I stay on the go. In the month of May I was only in the office for four days. I enjoy this work tremendously." Staying on the go is particularly challenging for Mike McCabe whose crippled legs require his constant use of crutches. B'ut that doesn't slow the Re- gional Administrator, even from a boat trip, because he likes to stay close to the work in which he's in- volvod.

That is the result of efforts last year to re-plant some grass and those efforts have succeeded. Those efforts have not been easy. The initial success several seasons ago ended when the new Eleanor P. Elliott, BPW member Eleanor P. Elliott, age 81, of Lewes and formerly of Brandy- wine Hundred, died Friday, May 23, 1997, at home ...... Mrs. Elliott, a registered nurse, had worked at Long0d Vilta grass was raked up and killed by recreational clammers who were simply clamming too close to the beds. The grant money will allow a far larger area of the bays to be planted with the grasses, some- thing which will have far more impact than the scattered plots planted thus far. "It is the way of the future [pro- tecting the inland bays] to provide something for our children and grandchildren," said Kent Price, the chairman of the Center for the Inland Bays.
