Continued from page 8 about my condition but rather about me as a person and how I was doing - the state of my soul, if you will. When I left his office, I always left with a sense of peace and well-being, whatever the cir- cumstances of my medical situa- tion were. In the past, I've dis- cussed in the Delaware General Assembly the importance of fami- ly physicians in the life of a com- munity and I was always thinking of Dr. Klingel as I spoke. The need for the kind of caring medi- cine practiced by men and women like Dr. Klingel will never pass. He was a true friend and an out- standing, community-spirited physician, not only to me, but to generations of area residents. George H.

Knight Rehoboth Beach DelDOT drops ball Last week DelDOT, without de- tour markings, started work on resurfacing Rt. 1A into Rehoboth (Rehoboth Avenue Extended), complete with flagpersons to con- trol traffic as flow was limited to one lane. Traffic, at times, due to the amount of local usage and no detours being posted, backed up to the light at County Bank on Route 1 and to the Sea Horse in Re- hoboth for vehicles leaving the city. Comments from Bruce Lit- tleton of DelDOT that this project (due to be completed Sept. 26) is being handled like all other pro- jects, which should be an embar- rassment to DelDOT. The travelling public, visitors to the area and the people of the State of Delaware deserve better. The fact that all the mobile sign boards were at Dover for the races and not available in Sussex Coun- ty is irresponsible as the simple orange signs that preceeded the electronic sign boards are still available. The excuse that closing (detour- ing) traffic causes complaints from local businesses is not valid. In this case, signage for "local traffic only" and "detour IA" di- recting traffic to 1B into town would be easy and responsible, but obviously DelDOT isn't try- ing enough to make it safe and easy. This specific situation could have been solved Monday after- noon or Tuesday morning, but when DelDOT holds off long enough, the project gets done and only the public waits and is unrea- sonably inconvenienced. Not properly marking alternate routes is not a top management job, however, with all the other problems DelDOT has these days, it would appear that top manage- ment needs to become involved and/or put responsible people in place to correct these types of problems from happening here or elsewhere in the future. Common sense and DelDOT are obviously not synonomous. Walter Brittinghmn Rehoboth Beach CAPE GAZET]UE, Friday, September 26 - October 2, 1997 - 11
