Power outage brings out best in DB police A four-hour power outage Mon- daTnight, July 10, in the north end of Dewey Beach resulted in some calls for assistance of Dewey police, and they respond- ed quickly and neighborly, said Mayor Bob Frederick. The out- age, caused when lightning struck a transformer in the south Re- hoboth Beach/north Dewey Beach area about 8 p.m., shut down traf- fic lights, as well as residential and commercial electricity service until it was restored about mid- night .... During that period, police re- sponded to calls from two north- end residents who use wheel- chairs and have elevators in their homes. Neither could enter their houses without the aid of police, and the local officers on duty were quick to answer the calls. "We're very proud that our offi- cers are able to help people so quickly," said Mayor Bob Freder- ick.
