18 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 26 - October 2, 1997 Volunteers gather for 1 l th Delmarva Coastal Clean-up By Dennis Forney Jessica Small, a member of Brownie Troop 809 in Lewes, pulled a long piece of purple rib- bon from the tideline of horseshoe crab parts and dead grasses washed up on the beach. The young girl shook her head in disgust. "I don't want to tell you," she said firmly. "Some- body's been having a party out here and leaving their trash and I don't like it. This is my land. People should treat it better." Veronica Allen, carrying a trash bag that was filling up quickly with everything from socks to cig- arette butts to cans and bottles, started to drag after 45 minutes of steady stooping over and picking up. "Lord help me," she said. "I don't think I can go another step." And so it was Saturday morn- ing, Sept. 20, at Cape Henlopen State Park on the Delaware Bay beach east of the public fishing pier. Veronica and Jessica were Forgotten Continued from page 17 The state does, however, plan to begin working immediately on paving of the northbound shoulder of the highway in that area, with striping later this fall. Concerned with the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists, both residents and visitors, DeFiore and her supporters were told that DelDOT also plans to put a cross- walk and pedestrian signal at the intersection of Bald Eagle Road among dozens of volunteers who gathered at 9 a.m. to clean the sec- tion of beach designated for them by Delaware's Department of Natural Resources and Environ- mental Control (DNREC) In ad- dition to Brownie Troop 809 members, volunteers from Howard T. Ennis School in Georgetown. also gathered to help clean the beach. While some car- ried plastic trash bags donated by the Center for Marine Conserva- tion, others carded sheets of paper and recorded what items were be- ing picked up from the beach in the clean-up effort. A few of the volunteers wore orange rubber gloves provided for the occasion by Playtex Products Inc. of Dover. Browning-Ferris Industries hauled away the trash. It was all part of the 1 lth Annu- al Delmarva Coastal Clean-up sponsored by Delmarva Power and Light and DNREC. Continued on page 20 and Route 1 (near the Company Store). A pedestrian signal and redefining of the crosswalk at the entrance to Spring Lake and Bay Mart Shopping Center are also on the drawing board. Better signage warning drivers to watch for pedestrians and bicy- clists will be erected and Delaware State Policewill be asked to step up patrols for speed- ing motorists in that area. On the other hand, Holloway called for bicyclists to use more caution, riding by the rules of the road, with traffic, and observing signals. How will y_9_g pay for long-term nursing home care?
