Glasscocks to mark 50th anniversary Fifty years ago, on June 7, 1945, Lt. G.B. '"lad" Glasscock, U.S.N., and Cpl. Therese Emily Penkoske, U.S.M.C., were mar- fled in Trenton, N.J. The couple had a short honey- moon at Skytop resort in the Poconos mountains before return- ing to active duty. Miss Penkoske was a lady Marine stationed at the Philadelphia Naval Yard and Lt. Glasscock was a Navy flight in- structor at Beaufort, S.C. The two had met while Miss Penkoske was stationed at Parris Island, outside Beaufort. Lt. Glasscock had been assigned to Beaufort Naval Air Station after a tour of duty as a flying boat pilot in the South Pa- cific, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. After VJ Day and separation from the service, the Glasscocks took an extended honeymoon, touring the country by automo- bile. The Glasscocks have lived in Lewes since 1968. Mr. Glass- cock was the first general manag- er of Barcroft Company and is a past president of the Delaware So- ciety of Professional Engineers. Community traffic safety program unveiled in Sussex By Kristen Seal Created to reduce countywide drinking and driving incidents, in- crease safety belt usage and re- duce high risk driving, the Com- munity Traffic Safety Program (CTSP) is now in effect in Sussex County. Diaz Bonville is the newly ap- pointed coordinator of the safety program and organized a presen- tation of the objectives of Sus- sex's newest program to promote roadway safety. Ron Jester, University of Delaware Extension Safety Spe- cialist; Karen L. Johnson, secre- tary of the Department of Public Safety; Kathy English, occupant protection coordinator from the Office of Highway Safety and Bonville gathered in honor of "Buckle Up America!" Week to introduce the Community Traffic Safety Program and to "tie one on for safety" distributing red, white and blue ribbons to be placed on Sussex's vehicles promoting safe driving. CTSP is funded federally through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration through the Delaware Office of Highway Safety in collaboration with the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension Service. The program is designed to bring together representatives from lo- cal government, educational insti- tutions, community organizations, law enforcement agencies, high- way safety specialists, private in- dustry, elected officials and Del- DOT to develop educational pro- grams. Bonville outlined six main goals of the CTSP: to plan and implement a com- prehensive program for Sussex County citizens to decrease the incidents of drunk driving and alcohol viola- tions in Sussex County by three to four percent in the next three to five years to increase safety belt usage by five to ten percent in the next three to five years to conduct the scientific needs assessment study to collect and maintain statis- tics on accident areas to organize an advisory task force involving community mem- bers from various organizations "Those of us who have the re- sources need to do all that we can to make our roads safer places to travel," adds Bonville. "We are extremely delighted to have Diaz Bonville as our first CTSP coordinator. In the short time that he has been with us, he has become totally absorbed in traffic safety and strongly believes in community involvement in get- ting this program started," says Jester.
