[ !lLnti.lJJiHilllJlLJLIJIWaila.liJmmlilmlUlUiluiilme,umJnm][. 86 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Dec. 6 - Dec. 12, 2002 Dewey Surf & Sport to open in new location Dec. 6 After 30 years as a fixture at the intersection of Highway One and New Orleans Street in Dewey Beach, Dewey Beach Surf & Sport is moving a few feet south to Highway One and Bellevue, across from the Bottle and Cork. Owner Jerry Seling said the rea- son for the move was simple: "The main reasons are that we are expanding from 800 to 2,200 square feet, and we still wanted to be in Dewey Beach. That accom- plished two of our objectives, plus the new location is right next door to Dewey Divas," he said. Dewey Divas is a surf shop catering exclusively to women and operated by Seling's daughter Melissa Seling. The new, larger facility will in- clude an expanded professional skateboard shop and will allow for increased inventory for those who enjoy surfing, skimboarding, bodyboarding and skateboarding. In recent years, the demand for clothing and accessories for all of these sports was difficult to ac- commodate in the 800-square- foot store, Seling said. "We carry all name brand equipment and supplies, and we have avery loyal customer base that we feel we will be better able to serve in the new store," he said. Dewey Beach Surf & Sport is open seven days a week, year round. The store caters to experi- enced surfers, but is always will- ing to serve those new to the sport. A new employee recently added to the staff is Aaron Powell, a professional surfer from Ocean View. Powell will be available at the store to answer questions, of- fer tips and lessons. The business is also the sponsor of Team Dewey, an internationally known skimboarding team. Seling plans to open for busi- ness in the new store Dec. 6. An open house and holiday party is planned for 3 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 14. The event is open to the public and will include free refreshments and giveaways, as well as an op- portunity to register to win a new surfboard.

Delaware's strength emphasized during state chamber's Superstars in Business event Delaware's business-friendly environment and knowledge- based work force will allow the state's economy to thrive as the nation emerges from the current economic slowdown, said Dr. An- thony M. Santomero, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. Santomero delivered his re- marks at the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce's fourth annual Superstars in Business Awards luncheon, Nov. 12, at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington. While Delaware still enjoys the strength of a strong manufactur- ing base, the state is experiencing a third wave of economic devel- opment: one based on the types of high-tech science that will pro- vide the jobs of the future. The state has the largest per capita concentration of science and engineering doctorates and the highest patent rate per capita in the United States. "Going forward, high rates of growth are expected in the high tech sector, growing and building on the technical roots of the past," Dr. Santomero said. "Growth in the tech arena tends to be among smaller, innovative firms. This environment fosters the entrepre- neurship that creates high-quality jobs. This economic evolution bodes well for Delaware and is es- pecially advantageous for the small business sector." Santomero also cited, as aids to growth, organizations such as the Delaware State Chamber of Com- merce's Small Business Alliance, which hosted the awards ceremo- ny, the Delaware Economic De- velopment Office, the Small Busi- ness Development Center Net- work at the University of Delaware, the Delaware Small Business Administration, and Digital Delaware.
