By Dave Frederick BIG LEAGUE HARDBALL - According to Big League coach Mike Cunningham, the local boys took an old-fashioned butt-kicking last Sunday, June 14, losing to Millsboro 17-2. The game was limited to five innings because of the "slaughter rule." Adam Scott started for Cape but just didn't have it, getting hit around in an in- ning and a half of work. Scott Townsend, who coach Cunning- ham and ! talked into playing this summer, took over for Adam and threw the. ball pretty well for someone who hasn't pitched in two years. Scott iitched three in- nings. Bob Baker, Jason Orlen, who played for Cunningham in Senior League before he moved to Millsboro, and Jay Balback all were 3 for 4 for Millsboro. One of Baiback's hits was a homerun. Cape had six hits on the evening.

L. . > NOA The Gazette goes north to find real winter Wanting to experience real winter, Fred and Marjorie Olson of Dewey Beach went to an elderhostel in Finland over Christmas and New Year's. While in Tomie, at the top of the Gulf of Bothnia, the group made a visit to Santa Claus who lives at the arctic circle just north of Rovaniemi. At the arctic circle, pictured here, the Olsons confirmed on their Global Positioning System (GPS) that yes, indeed, they were at 66 degrees 16 minutes N, 25 degrees, 19 minutes E. For a few minutes they were quite blissful- the beautiful snow, the brilliant sunshine, the bite in the air - and it was real winter. But they quickly brought themselves back to reality with a glance at their Cape Gazette. The newspaper reminded them instantly of back home in the Cape Region at 38 degrees 41 minutes N, 75 degrees 4 minutes W. In its cold, factual manner, the Cape Gazette can do that. With the Gazette, they saw their way clearly to the Bahamas John and Marie Cooper of Seabreeze, Rehoboth Beach, spent a few days in the Bahamas in November of 1997. While relaxing at the pool of the Princess Resort in Freeport, John caught up on the hometown news of the latest Cape Gazette. Marie, being a patient of Halpern Eye Associates for 50 years, won the trip during Halpem's 50th Anniversary celebration in 1997. The trip improved the couple's vision: Ne could see doing a lot of this," they said.
