Eflk SumpUon photo Bassmasters host fishing tourney Over 90 children turned out at Milton Park for the 14th an- nual Lower Sussex County Bassmasters Youth Tournament. Organizers of the tournament provided bait and tackle and opportunities for all children to fish from a boat with some of Sussex County's top fishermen. Proudly displaying her catch, an 18 inch 3.6 pound catfish, is Kimmie Bossert, U, of Milton. All children received prizes that included fishing gear and beach toys for participating in the event. By Dave Frederick ALL OR NOTHING - By the time this Friday's Gazette sees Saturday morning, the focus of Cape football will be sharper than a lighthouse in a northwest wind or more foggy than the shipping channel at 5 a.m. when the wind "drops out." Legendary Coach George Glenn is being recruited with enthusiam inside the district, and up and coming coach J.D. Maull, who was already offered a teaching job and coaching posi- tion at Delcastle High School, is waiting to see what Coach Glenn does before making his decision. If these two men "drop out" of the running Cape will need to get cre- ative in a hurry. TIM STAUFFER - Former le- gal aid attorney Bill Schab of Lewes, known back in the day by his economically disadvantaged clients as Lawyer Bill, is the uncle of University of Richmond fire- bailing right-hander Tim Stauffer. Now lots of people have nephews who play sports, but not many can say, "My nephew was the fourth overall pick in the recent Major League baseball draft." Stauffer was chosen by the San Diego Padres and, according to "advis- er" Ron Shapiro, "San Diego let it be known that one of the things that made Tim so attractive was his advanced stage of develop- ment that should get him to the Big Leagues quickly." Shapiro added, "Most importantly, Tim has great character and values to match his talent." Congratulations to the extended Schab family and, if Bill is interested, we hear San Diego has an opening for "backup chicken." ,NEW b USED GUNS HOLSTERS AMMO HUNTING LICENSE GIFT CERTIFICATES*: Sl ": (00BE RETTA GI UI NI SI IRI LI:I EI SI HI AI NI GI u I Weekdays: 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. :j Evenings: - 7:10 p.m. - 9 p.m. A391 XTREMA 3.5 ADVANTAGE WETLANDS 12GA 3.5 24" 26" 28" HWY. 1 IN THE MIDWAY VILLAGE SHOPS Phone (302) 645-8350 m:l-,.-t:mr, n:r.l,]:m FAX (302) 644-2066 Saturday: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. & 7:10 p.m. - 9 p.m. Email - Sunday: Noon - 5 p.m. [HII[iT[[ 'lmll]lnllllil .....
