CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 11 - July 17, 1997 - 85 Youth fishing tourney set for July 12 This Saturday, July 12, marks the annual Youth Fishing Tourna- ment sponsored by Hoss's Pier One at the Cape Henlopen Fishing Pier from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you're in the neighborhood, stop in and say hello. The tournament draws hundreds of kids and they can always use some extra volun- teer judges. If you can't help, stop anyway. Hardly anything will make you feel that the world isn't so bad as watching a free tournament for hundreds of kids. Nobody makes one thin dime and the prizes for the fishermen do not come cheap- ly for tournament sponsors. But the payoff is a rich one--for both kids and adults.

It's nice to see that most fisher- men now routinely release marlin. Conservation has really started to catch on and it's taken hold most firmly with billfish, perhaps the rarest and most sought after of all game fish. Tom McCloughan checked in with 30 blueheads from B Buoy while Doug Collander reported flounder to five pounds from the Sal/1C area. Freshwater Ponds have turned on in the last few days. Captain Bill suggests Betts, Ingram and Millsboro Ponds. A purple fleck worm, bro- ken-back Rapala or surface plugs, fished early or late, are good bets for bass. It's been a good season so far for the Second to None. Shown here with a nice recent catch.are Harrisburg, Pa. fishermen Dave Starson, Ken Keffier, Dan Wertman and Jim Sabo. The foursome were fishing the Anchorage for trout and flounder iwith Captain Don Churchill and Mate Gregg Keck. DNREC Enforcement "Behind the Scenes."

Massey's Landing needs a few good ideas Delaware's Division of Fish and Wildlife held an open meeting on Tuesday night to get ideas about how to use Massey's Landing. Around 25 people showed up, but that's a drop in the bucket cam- Baseball Pitching Camp (age 9-12) looks at the principles of pitching, including mechanics, strategies, physical conditioning and fielding techniques.

Massey's Landing was bought by the state and now provides some fishing pier area, two boat ramps and abundant parking for those who want to launch a boat and have .access to the inland bays. This is your chance to speak your mind and give the state some input. The Division of Fish and Wildlife is still taking comments and they want to hear from the public about how to best manage the area for boating and fishing. Some possible ideas include re- building a snack bar on the site, developing fish cleaning facilities, paving the parking lot, adding fishing pier areas and increasing the number of boat ramps. Current plans call for the area to be open from .dawn to dusk year-round with the possibility of private se- curity beilag hired to police it and provide assistance with boat launching. This is your chance to let the state know how you feel. To do so, call the Division of Fish and Wildlife at 739-3441. Karate for Kids (ages %11) will enable students to develop self-confidence and disciplirle while learning the basics of karate in a safe environment.

Lewes. DE 19958 Sports Fans/ YOU DIDN'T KNOW Brought to you by Kelly Racz Did you ever hear about the big league ball player who saved the American flag?... It was one of the most patriotic moments ever seen at a ball game... It happened at Dodgers Stadium, Los Angles, on April 25, 1976... Dur- ing the 4th inning of the game that day, out- fielder Rick Monday saw 2 men jump on the field and start to bum the American flag... Mon- day raced over, shoved bath men aside-and saved the flag... Monday got a standing ova- tion. Surprisingly, the man who holds the all- time bi league baseball record for the most runs batted in, in one season, is NOT any of the great sluggers you might think of at first... An almost-forgotten player named Hack Wil- son had 190 runs batted in for the Cubs in 1930--and that record has NEVER been topped, before or since. Here's an alazing :oincidence... Look how many different sports all have the letter =o" as the second letter in their name--football, gall hock, bowling, boxing, boating, soccer, horse racing, dog racing, volleyball, polo, row- ing and softball!
