10 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2013 VIEWPOINTS Cape Gazette Letters )) Continued from page 8 definition is a lot differentthan most people. It is a dog eat dog medical world out there! Not exciting at all. One matter where you are 100 percent correct - ev- eryone better be prepared to be their own advocate. Carol Anderson Lewes Hocker, Atkins not looking at the future I need to respond to the joint editorial by Sen. Hocker and Rep. Atkins about the South Korean Allen Harim takeover of the now Brownfield status site, formerly Pinnacle Foods-owned Vlasic plant on the Indian River. The position expressed by our legisla- tors, that slaughtering 2 million poultry on the Indian River is an investment in our air and water is either extremely naive or delusional. The current status of impaired waters in Delaware - over 85 percent are not swim- mable - should explain the result of such poor decisions. In case our elected officials need to be reminded, the growth in Sussex County is due to people investing in the natural treasures of our environment. Tourism is responsible for the positive eco- nomic growth. Cape Henlopen is a treasure that photographers coine to capture from all over the country. The beaches are clean, and couples come to get married because of the natural beauty here. People do not wish to invest in vacations where they cannot swim or need to run into their homes because they cannot breathe. The time is now to stop the thought process of "well, it's contaminated now - can't let it sit empty." The people deserve for- ward-thinking elected politicians' who recognize the value of true investment in our communities. Invest in projects that will attract positive growth while investing in healthy communities. Beverly Fink Long Neck Congratulations Milton and Mayor Jones Congrat ations, Milton! Thank you, Mayor Jones and town council! Finally an ad hoc committee to examine carefully, the scope and purpose and cost of our Milton Police Department. Wonderful! At long last, the opportunity to learn how large a force Milton really needs; how to budget ap- propriately and work to make salaries competitive, but without ove extending taxpayer dollars; how to instill pride in our town and its force and do likewise for those wearing the Milton uni- form, and all in transparency with this special ad hoc! - Not only does our chief have a seat at the table (a committee member himself), but profes- sional police from the area and citizen representatives from our town are doing the good and worthwhile work of finally put- ring to rest so much misinforma- tion about the MPD. In answer to a neighbor's recent question - "What hap- pened?" - regarding salary in- creases and new hires to fill open positions and apparently, with few protests against such options coming from the public, and all put to the Cape Gazette and its readers (Aug. 16-19 edition) in its Viewpoints section, well, that question seems to have answered itselfl 'Action, is the answer. Mayor Jones and council took action. Where indecisiveness and inaction had been the norm for too many years, Milton now has a chance to move above and " beyond the divisiveness caused by too many unexamined issues from the past. We will all be watching as this trusted panel continues its worth- while work on behalf of not only the MPD, but all of Milton. Once again, "Congratulations, Milton, and thank you, Mayor Jones and council!" Jeff Dailey Milton CatSnippers thank suppOrters for help The Milton CatSnippers would like to send out a big thanks to Jenn Orlando and the entire staff of Irish Eyes Restaurant in Milton! They were wonderful in securing us a spot at this years Bargains on the Broadkill Festival in Milton. We had a beautiful and prosperous day, and fun was had by all. We want to thank everyone who purchased items, donated something or just stopped by to talk and ask questions about the group. We also want to thank all the people who turned out to help make jewelry and paint fence fish before the event, so we could have some things to sell. You know who you are, and we want you all to know how much it was appreciated. Special thanks go out-to Tom and Jean Osborne, who have donated so much of their time and money buying sup- plies and opening up their home to have all the jewelry making and painting parties. You two are truly inspirational! And last but not least, a little information about the Milton CatSnippers. We are a nonprofit group that spays and neuters stray and/or feral cats in and around the Town of Milton. We als0 manage some colonies in the area. We have spayed/neutered over 800 cats since we began in 2001. If you feed a stray cat.and do not have the money to have it spayed or neutered, please con- tact us or another spay/neuter group and get help to take care of this aspect of being a responsible caretaker. You are not helping these cats by just feeding them. Please, always spay and neuter your pets! The Milton CatSnippers Kudos to Rehoboth Beach Patrol I cannot praise the Rehoboth Beach Patrol enough for their vigilance and support of each and every swimmer in the open water event of the Sundance Run, Walk and Swim this past Sunday. The ocean was particularly rough that morning, and I believe all the lifeguards were out on the water on boards, in kayaks or actually swimming with us participants. Having never competed in this type of event, I was very anxious upon seeing the condition of the ocean. The Rehoboth Beach Patrol's role in this event allayed any fears I had and allowed me to complete the half-mile swim safely. Kudos also to Seashore Striders for such great organization of four simultaneous events and to CAMP Rehoboth for its many and excellent volunteers. Diane Scobey Rehoboth Beach Ideas on future of Bradley house I don't know if this is the correct platform for sharing an opinion, but I'd like to add to the conversation about the vacancy of Earl Bradley's former home. In iight of what will undoubt- edly be a very long association with the former doctor and his deplorable actions, why not use the building in a way that culti- vates a new and brighter legacy? for use as a shelter, or as a transitional home for one or more of our most vulnerable. populations. Or offer it to a struggling family involved in a community affordable housing program? Tim Rennick RehobothBeach Do You Experience Back & Neck Pain? Tension in the Shoulders? Headaches? Insomnia?
