Boat safely this weekend Joyce Hennessey of Delaware's Division of Fish and Wildlife En- forcement is reminding boaters that this is the most dangerous weekend of the season. Here is what Hennessey had to say about July 4: Fourth of July weekend is the busiest boating weekend of the year, but it is also the deadliest. It is estimated that more than 30 million Americans will take to the water this Fourth of July weekend. U.S. Coast Guard statistics show that on aver- age, there is one boating fatality every 72 minutes, and alcohol use is a major contributing factor in Rehoboth (302) 226-1300 Georgetown (302) 856-3700 1-888-MR ROOTER (667-6683) TIDES 7/3 7/4 7/7 Indian River Roosevelt Oak Inlet Inlet Orchard recreational boating casualties. When combined with sun, wind and exposure, the effects of alco- hol are heightened. A boat opera- tor with a blood alcohol concen- tration above 0.10 is 10 times more likely to be killed in a boat- ing accident than a boater with ze- ro blood alcohol concentration. More people die in boating acci- dents every year than in airplane crashes, train wrecks or bus acci- dents and more people die in alco- hol related boating accidents dur- ing the Fourth of July weekend than during any other weekend of the year. Boating while intoxicated, or BWI, is not only dangerous - it's illegal. The Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agents will be patrolling Delaware's water- ways and will be on the lookout for negligent operators and those boaters who are operating under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Fishing slows, but trout and flounder still coming steady By Michael Short Delaware Bay Hoss's Pier One reports croak- ers and spot during the daytime, flounder anytime and trout at night. But hot weather has been limiting the number of fishermen trying their luck. Joe Morris at Lewes Harbour Marina reports that there are some striped bass in the Lewes- Rehoboth Canal and trout at Roo- sevelt Inlet on peeler crabs fished on the last of the incoming tide. There are also flounder in the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal. Delaware Bay is producing mixed catches between the walls and at the Shears of both trout and flounder. Good catches were also reported at the Crossovers, Blakes Channel and between 14-Foot Light and Brandywine. Flounder fishing was best at the top of the flood and trout bit on both tides.

Hultiple bulkheadecl tee areas can make this hole play very difficult over tidal wetlands. The green itseff is protected by a huge bunker on the front right and a smaller bunker on the backside. The left side is guarded with mounds and grass bunkers. Host players will have to hit a driver or three-wood to reach a forgiving green which is larger than it appears from the tee. i
