CAPE GAZETrE, Friday, August 20 - August 26, 1993.9 Continued from page 6 We have never seen such an outrageous display of poor sports- manship as we did in our last game with the Wildcats when two of the coaches marched on the field yelling at the umpire and pulling their team off the field in the middle of the fifth inning. Our girls were bewildered and so were our coaches and parents. As if this were not enough, when our coach walked over to try to resolve the so-called "prob- lem," he was verbally attacked with shouting and foul language by numerous parents of the Wild- cat team. We were shocked and embarrassed that our children would see adults behaving in such a manner, over what they per- ceived as a "bad call" by the umpire. The Rams played and won 11 of their 12 games by the rules, "fair and square," because they prac- riced hard and became aggressive bail players. They are now being called cheaters by the other teams. Is this the kind of treatment you get when you play well in Lewes Little League? Lastly, we feel we must mention that not once did a League Repre- sentative come to our games. We feel that many of the disturbing events that occurred could have been avoided if there were a League Representative present. The closestwe had to that was a father who attended the umpire clinic and read the rule book, and he was continually treated badly by the other coaches. Maybe it is time to re-evaiuate the Minor League System. We know we certainly will! Sincerely, Coaches and parents of the Rams of the Lewes Minor League False accusations At the Lewes City Council meeting of August 9, 1993, Coun- cilwoman Elinore Sbeehan made a false accusation that A1 Stango receives a $2,400 pension. This was reported in the August 13th edition of the Cape Gazette. Citizens of Lewes, I have served the City of Lewes from 1962 to 1992 and have never been paid a penny in salary or pension. I was strictly a volunteer during those 30 years working for the best inter- ests of the City and Citizens of Lewes. AI Stango Lewes Donations helped Hurray for community spon- sors ! Once again, the Lewes Public Library Summer Reading Program received generous donations from local businesses. At our Congrat- ulations Party, the children, who read more than 2,500 books in six weeks, applauded each other and themselves and gathered the "trea- sure," given by those in the list that follows. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Mihm of the Lewes Beach Dairy Queen for ice cream coupons; Ms. Ford of Kids Ketch for the mer- chandise coupons; and Ms. Rather of Grotto Pizza, Inc. for the pizza slice/soft cone chips. You helped us plant and grow quite a few readers this year! Kathy Graybeal Children's Librarian Lewes Public Library A great program This letter is intended to compli- ment the excellent [Rehoboth Recreation Department] chil- dren's craft program held at the new and delightful Shaw Grove Tuesday mornings. Director-teacher Bob Maull and wife Pam plan unique crafts that children love, and they always make the children feel welcome and comfortable with their skills. My eight-year-old was the 25th child in a class limited to 24. She was ushered right in, accommo- dated with pleasure, given sup- plies by Pam, and then offered the crafts project from the preceding week, when my child was absent. The kids adore Mr. and Mrs. Maull. One afternoon when my daugh- ter and house guest went to the park to play shuffleboard, the chalk for the scoreboard was miss- ing. Pare took off to go buy some chalk for the kids. The Maulls are dedicated pro- fessionals. We're so glad the class is fully enrolled and the park is used so well. Nancy Martin Lewes Many thanks Once again the community has shown to everyone that Rehoboth Beach is still the family place to be. Thanks to the many donations, volunteers and their hard work we were able to provide a beautiful and well structured playground so that our summer campers and the little Y'ers will be able to have fun and be fit for years to come. Once again, a heartfelt thank you goes out to the following: The Dewey Beach Lions Club; The Village Improvement Associ- ation; Dr. and Mrs. D.V. Linden- struth; Victor Collier; Sharon Rose and Doris Dorman, who because of them the plan began; Downs Grounds Maintenance; George M. Howard and Sons Inc.; Howard D.L. Ritter and Sons Inc.; Best Hardware, Inc., for the hard- ware to put it together along with Millsboro Lumber and Millwork Inc.; Lowe's; Shaffer Tires; and Sherwin Williams Paints for the supplies to make the plan possible. And to the hard workers Alan and Andrew Herman for the con- struction; Sunil Hosmane for the building plans and the painting along with Kristine Clements, Jim and Frank Cardone, and Lou and Judy Mazzini. And to Betty Lou Suter, Linda Marden and Linda Gibbs, who without their help it could not have happened. Theresa Cardone Sussex Family YMCA Continued from page 2 Reboboth Beach Police Chief Creig Doyle reported a series of bicycle thefts in the city recently. According to Doyle the thieves are bold, taking bikes from backyards and porches, as well as public areas. The Chief warned against leaving bikes unattended in public areas and recommended taking bikes inside at night, or securing them with a kryptonite U-bar lock, the only type the thieves have been unable to break. Building and License Supervi- sor John Dean reported that as of the meeting, eight Rehoboth busi- ness owners had yet to renew their operating licenses for the coming year. The deadline for renewal was July 31, 1993. Dean is pursu- ing the delinquent licensees, and suggested the city consider insti- tuting some form of late fee sys- tem for those disregarding the deadline. Dean also reported that the city is participating in a FEMA spon- sored program designed to help Rehoboth area residents qualify for reduced flood insurance rates. Under the provisions of the pro- gram the city will educate proper- ty owners and maintain up-to-date information on flood zones and flood disaster prevention in return for the reduced rates. For more information contact Dean's office at 227-6181. The Commission announced the appointment of Commissioner Richard Darley and C. William Bahan to an ad hoe committee to study the regulation of Cable TV rates in the city. Audit committeeman Doug Butner reported that city funds held in Mellon Bank in excess of the amount insured by the FDIC have been collateralized by U.S. government bonds for more than double the amount of the unin- sured deposit. Melissa Clink, co-chair of the Jazz Festival (scheduled for Satur- day, Oct. 23), requested permis- sion to have a band play on Balti- more Avenue at First Street, from 4-6 p.m, as an extension of the Jazz festivities, which conclude at the Bandstand at 4 p.m. Clink will be collaborating with City Manag- er Greg Ferrese on the details. The Commissioners voted to approve the sale of a disabled city tractor to W.C. Littleton for the sum of $800. According to Fer- rese, the 1977 Massey Ferguson tractor has a cracked block too expensive to warrant repair. Lit- tleton is purchasing the tractor for parts. Jim Johnson, Jr., of Century Engineers was awarded a contract to oversee the drainage and repaving project planned for Hen- lopen Avenue. Johnson's winning bid for the work was $28,750. Hopkins Construction was awarded a contract to handle the revamping of the city's trash com- pacting system. The job is to be completed in two stages, one this year, one next, for the total sum of $25,0O0. Commissioner Jan Konesey, chairman of the Comprehensive Plan Review Committee, reported that a long-range plan was, in fact, needed and recommended to the Commissioners that they autho- rize commencement of a long- range planning process similar to that being undertaken in Lewes. Lewes has hired a professional planner to guide them. Konesey further recommended that her committee remain intact to monitor such planning. The Commissioners will consider this issue in greater depth at an as-yet- to-be scheduled workshop. Hardware AUGUST 1993 Sl MR.
