4 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Brief Continued from page 3 1997), a copy of the State of Delaware Business License, proof of a $5,000 Town of Henlopen Acres Plumbers Bond naming Town of Henlopen Acres as oblig- ee (available at Town Hall), a cur- rent certificate of insurance with bodily injury liability and proper- ty damage insurance and a license fee of $50. All permits must be fully com- pleted and brought to the Town Hall in person for processing. For more information, call 227-6411. Raley withdraws entrance request Bob Redey withdrew his request that the Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission consider his entrance permits on May 23 for the Nassau Commons area. Raley planned to ask the Plan- ners to consider the permits, which he said could be used for a proposed Wed-Mart. The land was the proposed location for a Wed- Mart, although Delaware's De- partment of Transportation (Del- DOT) denied an entrance permit for the project last week. Raley said he already had en- trance permits which date back to 1972, although DelDOT's Joel Leidy said those permits are for Nassau Commons and the busi- nesses there. Subdivision Engi- neer Leidy said the permits are not for Wal-Mart or a major shopping area and they don't apply to the Wed-Mart application. Still, Raley said he still believes the permits are valid and he does not intend to give up that fight. Raley said "we have plans we are going to implement." Raley said he has something substantial in the works which will make DelDOT look "fool- ish." He declined to say what that was and declined to elaborate on why he temporarily withdrew his request from the agenda. Wed-Mart, meanwhile was also not elaborating on its plans. Stacey Webb, spokesperson for Wal-Mart headquarters in Ben- tonville, Ark., repeated that the business giant still remains inter- ested in the area. But she said she had no information about other potential sites. Route 1 Weekly Accident U 00date Dewey Planners consider Lions request The Dewey Beach Planning and Zoning Commission will recon- vene a hearing on Friday, June 7 at 7 p.m. on a zoning change for the Dewey Beach Lions. The zoning change would change the zoning for the property from resort residential to resort business. The land owned by the Lions Club houses a playground and the Waterfront Restaurant and the Lions Club has asked that the zoning be changed. The land is lo- cated on McKinley Street and the bay. The May 17 hearing was con- tinued until June 7 because Lions June 7 - June 13, 1996 Club Attorney Jim Griffin asked for additional time in order to pre- sent more information. Lions club officials say they do not want the zoning change for any expansion or development plans (the property is now grand- fathered as a non-c0nforming use). "It will be consistent with the use. It is just to clear up the zoning," Griffin said previously. Dewey Commissioners to mull eatery request The Dewey Beach Commis- sioners will consider a conditioned use for an eatery when the Com- missioners meet June 14. The re- quest is for Darius Mansoory to be allowed to operate an eatery at 1701 highway One at McKinley Avenue and Highway One, on the site of a new motel being con- structed. The agenda also includes a public hearing on a rezoning re- quest from resort residential to re- sort business for land owned by the Dewey Beach Lions Club (the Planning and Zoning Commission will consider the issue on June 7), the personnel manual and a pro- posal to allow the county to en- force the building code for the town. Sussex County approved that request at the County Council meeting June 4. The Commission- ers meet at 7 p.m. June 14 in the Dewey Lifesaving Station. SCAT mulls moratorium request from Coaliton Mike Tyler of the Citizens Coalition asked the Sussex Coun- ty Association of Towns on June 5 to consider the Citizens Coalition request for a temporary commer- cial moratorium for eastern Sus- sex until Sussex County com- pletes its comprehensive land use plan. The plan is due by the end of this year and the Coaliton has been asking for support for the temporary moratorium until that plan is put into place. The Citizens Coalition has tak- en that request to Lewes, Re- hoboth Beach and County Coun- cil. SCAT took no action on June 5, but may consider the issue again when its steering committee meets on Friday, June 7. The Coalition's request is for a mora- torium on commercial only devel- opment from the county line at Milford to the Maryland border and from the ocean to two miles west of U.S. 113. County to consider Lake Dr., other projects Sussex County Council will hold three public hearings on June 11, which were cancelled on May 14 because of widespread power outages.The public hearings will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the County Council chambers in the Court- house. One hearing is for Seabright Village. The Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission has recommended approval of the project, which would be located near Beach- haven off of Rd. 270A. Develop- ers have asked for a change of zoning to develop 38 townhouses. A second hearing is for a six- unit multi-family complex to be located at the southern limit of Reboboth Beach on the west side of Lake Drive. That project bor- ders Silver Lake and has proven controversial with neighbors. The Sussex County Planning and Zon- ing Commission also recommend- ed approval of the Lake Drive project, despite objections from residents that it would be out of character and could hurt property values. Those two hearings have proven controversial and both projects have been opposed by neighbors. A third heating, how- ever, is on a project which has provoked little or no concern from area residents. That third heating will be for a zoning change for 76.39 acres of land off of Rt. 24 to be developed into a housing com- plex by Joe and Craig Hudson. County considers Three Seasons expansion Sussex County Council consid- ered a request to expand the Three Seasons Campground near Re- boboth Beach at its Tuesday, June 4 meeting. The proposed expan- sion would be for an additional 18 campground sites and was the subject of a short public hearing on June 4. Campground owner Dennard Quillen said there is de- mand for campgrounds and he ex, pects to fill the additional sites al- most as soon as they are finished. There was no opposition to the campground request from the public. County Council, however, delayed a vote, because there were only three county council mem- bers at the hearing. County rules stipulate that at least four of the five should be in attendance. Because of that, the request has Angle Moon photos Special Olympics kicks off games The 10th Annual Delaware Law Enforcment Torch Run for Special Olympics kicked off at the Rehoboth Beach Band- stand June 5, with the torch bearers carrying the flame through Dover to the Special Olympics opening ceremonies tonight, June 7 at 7:30 p.m., at the University of Delaware sta- dium.

This time, reiterating their phi- losophy that present laws "treat our breasts as though theyare something obscene or dirty, and inhibit further changing of that mentality," the threesome now ask that laws at least be liberalized rather than totally abolished. The latest tome proposes that laws remain intact, but enforce- ment be relaxed south of Queen Street; that tops stay on in or near the water; police ignore women who uncover their breasts on the beach behind the lifeguard if everyone is conducting them- selves in an orderly manner; if an officer tells a woman to put on her top, it is done quickly or an arrest is made; anyone (male or female) who causes a disturbance would be arrested. "There is room for the law to bend on this issue and we suggest a reasonable way to begin. We hope you will consider talking with sunbathers, especially in the section south of Queen Street. We think we know what their re- sponse will be," they end. Last year, they wrote that they would gather on the beach at Norfolk Street one weekend day in July to bare their tops, but as police and a crowd gathered, nothing hap- pened. They later wrote that due to their professional lives, they could not afford to be arrested. Officials have said they will not loosen up restrictions. The Rehoboth Beach Home- owners Association will host a Meet the Candidates Night at 8 p.m., Saturday, June 15 in All Saints' Parish Hall, 18 Olive Av- enue. The only candidates they will be hearing out for the Aug. 10 election, will be incumbent Mayor Sam Cooper and his opponent, Rehoboth Homeowners plan candidate night Sussex County Council will hold a public hearing on June 11 on the proposed county budget. The County Council meets at 10 a.m. on June 11 in the County Courthouse and the budget hear- ing will be part of the morning session of County Council. County Administrator Bob Stickels released the proposed budget last last month and noted that it includes no tax or rate hikes. Part of the proposed budget will also include setting rates for the county's various sewer dis- tricts, all of whom will have the same proposed rate that is now in effect. Latest topless sunbathing request goes unheeded Bill Bahan, as there were only two candidates, incumbent Jack Hyde and Betty Ann Kane, for the two commissioners seats up for elec- tion. After hearing the candidate presentations and any questions from the audience, the member- ship will vote on whom to sup- port.
