12 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2010 NEWSE Cape Gazette Letters )) Continued from page 9 and more traffx and crime in our little town. So if you thought that your worst problem was the 35- foot limit, think again carefully! If you choose the wrong candidate on Saturday, Dewey will be changed for ever. Please don't be tricked by the FUD you read about in Dewey's News. As my old friend Hunter S. Thompson would say, "Stop the Greedheads!" Fighting the good fight, 6eorgie Jessup Mauler 58,years of a "Way of Life" in Dewey eeach Ranieri endorsement smacks of hypocrisy Dewey Beach Commissioner Zeke Przygocki spoke loud and clear, hopefully to deaf ears, in his recent letter to the editor. This is the same person with the dubious distinction of being the only com- missioner in the history of our town to be censured by his peers. His censure resulted from an inci- dent of harassment of a sexual na- ture during a standup comedy routine he performed in town hall that degraded and humiliated a fellow commissioner. There is one thing most of us will agree upon Mr. Przygocki and if you please al- low me to use your quote, "to den- igrate a woman" and fellow com- missioner "in this manner is rep- rehensible, to say the least, espe- cially by a sitting member of town council." Isn't it interesting that the censured perpetrator/aggres- sor of the humiliating and degrad- ing act has now morphed into Mr. Ih-qgocki, the sensitive defender of women as he points his fmger and accuses a well-respected fel- low commissioner of denigrating behavior toward the only female candidate? While contemplating sitting commissioner Przygocki's most recent accusations and tak- ing into account his seemingly amazing personal transformation, the word hypocrisy comes to mind. Midrib Murray r=ota, Fb. Kelly Ranieri for Dewey Beach Commissioner I have cast my ballot in the Dewey Beach election and urge my fellow voters to join me - vote for Kelly and only Kelly. I am a former Dewey Beach commis- sioner and a former member of the Citizens to Preserve Dewey (CPD) advisory board. I finalized my decision upon re- ceipt of CPD's recent "update." It is clear that the recommendation of a bloc vote for Kelly's oppo- nents is designed to oust Rick Sol- loway as mayor and replace him with their selected candidate. Last year, they successfully convinced voters to oust the former mayor, my friend and colleague Dell Tush- On another occasion, when I disagreed with them, they ousted me from their advisory board. I am proud to join the long list of former mayors and commis- sioners, as well as other long-term town activists, who recommended we vote for Kelly. The list includ- ed mature folks who disagreed with one another over the years on various issues but they all agreed in their love of Dewey Beach. Concerns about legal fees of more than a quarter of a million dollars per year plus the potential risk of millions more in court judgments cannot be assuaged by reassurances drawn from "Chap- ter 9 of the Bankruptcy Code to provide protection-" The town's commissioners should cease hav- ing the town attorney on speed di- al (council used to limit such con- tacts to the mayor and town man- ager). The town may not prevail in its disagreements with deep-pock- eted developers if we continue foolish, misguided efforts such as the clarifying ordinance of last week (why challenge the develop- er to sue yet again?) By the way, no one contacted me to obtain clarification of my earlier votes on these matters. We need mature, clear-thinking representatives in these critical times. A continua- tion of Mayor Solloway's leader- ship coupled with Kelly Ranieri's ability to deal with children may be our last best hope to govem Dewey Beach. Otherwise we may have to request acquisition by Re- hoboth Beach because of a failed 29-year experiment in self-govern- ment - if they will have us. Robet M. Fitzgerald Rehoboth Beach Fond farewell to Rehoboth's Winter Inn I drove past the Winter Inn on Park Avenue in Rehoboth Beach to say good-bye. This week she is meeting her fate. Too many struc- tures in this town have been vic- tims of the greed the wrecking ball represents. What is past is prologue so why are we consis- tently destroying our past. There is so much history here that needs to be preserved but our Rehoboth Beach commissioners apparently don't see it that way. We do in- deed have a historic preservation group but with no laws on the books to back them up. Isn't it time to preserve what remains of our architectural history before all of it disappears? My partner and I own the former home of Anne B. Dodd on Anne B Street in Dodd's Addition. Their money came from potato farming this area about 100 years ago, and the fami- ly influence stretches from Dewey Beach to Henlopen Acres. We are diligently preserving the original structure, and I sincerely hope that Anne's home never meets such a fate as the Winter Inn and so many others. Those New Year's Eve parties at the inn will all too soon be forgotten. The old girl is hanging tough though. It's been over a week and she's still not to- tally down. Iz rmr.e M. Stranded fisherman phot/) gives a giggle I confess I couldn't suppress a giggle when I saw the front page photo of a stranded motorist at high tide. I'm so old I remember when ftshing required only a rod, a few exotic lures, bait and a buck- et for the catch; the more sociable fishermen took along a taciturn friend and perhaps a cool six-pack. Now, your gear is considered in- complete without a cooler for the catch, one for the, urn, sodas, a Weber grill, lawn furniture, boom box, and even a tent for the family port-a-potty. While I'm not op- posed to drive-on beaches, I wish the very tip of the Cape were per- manently off-limits to "surf-fishing rigs." Mike Warre Lewes Wind turbines are Lewes's future A couple of weeks ago I read of people complaining about the noise that the University of Delaware wind turbine makes. Last week I got as close as pos- sible to the turbine on the road - around 150 feet - and listened. One time there was no noise at all. The other time there was a very slight swishing noise that certainly couldn't be heard in any nearby homes. For some reason there are people opposed to wind turbines, but noise is certainly not a factor, especially if they are located off- shore. Things like wind turbines and solar panels are the wave of the future and we'd better get used to them. Let's face it - there is a limited supply of oil that will ulti- mately run out. Willis F.
