22- CAPE GAZETI, Friday, October i7- October 23, i7 Kerry Kester photo Boot Camp partnership aids needy David Hill, executive director at First State Community Ac- tion Agency (1), visited with Sussex Correctional Institution Boot Camp Cmdr. Richard Tabler just before the first boot camp graduation ceremony began on Thursday, Oct. 9. Hill and Tabler&apos;s organizations formed a partnership that allows needy families access to free wood. As part of their community service requirement, cadets cut the wood after removing it from a Millsboro sewage branch that became blocked by trees. They also assisted the agency with projects such as clearing land for housing. "We seek to help people who are in need all around us,  said Tabler. "It's an important part of the treatment program. It's an important part of developing the work ethic." Hill said he is enthusiastic about the partnership and looks forward to cadet assistance with more projects. "It's been a tremendous help for us," said Hill. Cyclists pledge over $40,000 to MS Bike to the Bay cause The sun shone throughout the weekend of Oct. 4 and 5 for the 15th annual Patterson-Schwartz MS 150 Bike to the Bay. The i,400 riders, who took off from Smyrna High School Satur- day morning for the 75-mile trip to Dewey Beach, pledged $425,000 to help the Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society achieve its mis- sion of ending the devastating ef- fects of multiple sclerosis. Most of the cyclists were back on the road Sunday morning for the return trip to Smyrna. With registration fees and the contribution of major sponsors, the total raised for the event is ex- pected to reach about $500,000. In addition to Patterson- Schwartz, sponsors of the Bike to the Bay include MBNA, WJBR, Kahlua, GMAC Commercial Mortgage, the 1492 Hospitality Group, Zeneca, Saturn of Newark and West Chester, Greenwood Trust/Discover/Novus, Continen- tal Airlines and many other busi- nesses and individuals. Hundreds of volunteers helped ensure a safe and satisfying ride for all cyclists throughout the weekend. An awards party on Nov. 20 will recognize the efforts of the riders and volunteers. The top fundraiser, who will win a vacation for two at Breezes Montego Bay, Jamaica, will be announced at the awards party.

"This has saved the residents of Millsboro a whole lot of money in manpower," Niblett said. "A whole lot of money," Since August, the first platoon of Sussex Boot Camp cadets - un- der direct supervision of drill in- structors and correctional officers - have cleared several hundred feet of overgrown trees, bushes and brush that were blocking the flow of Tiger Branch Creek, a critical outlet in Millsboro's stormwater management.
