Reflections on Cape Region institutions

January 18, 2013

Having lived here in Sussex County for 24 years I feel have qualified to give you my 2013 thoughts (predictions?).

• Fredman will continue to follow Cape sports with a passion that we all need to admire and embrace. I only hope the Cape kids realize how lucky they are to have him.

• Dewey Beach people of power will never agree. It is comical reading their letters and thoughts. Think it may have to do with the number of churches in Dewey??

• Sam from Dogfish will have his picture in the paper.

• The Barefootin' column will keep its hold on being a true gem of Sussex County. Dennis has a way of making you feel and breathe what he is writing.

• More and more growth will continue to tarnish the beauty of this area. As a rookie to this area, I am amazed at the growth in my short time. My heart goes out to those born and raised here.

• School district residents hopefully will realize how important David Robinson is to the district. He in one year accomplished more than any of the three previous leaders. He will be a vital component of any school construction.

• The sands of our beautiful beaches will come and go as nature feels it wants to do. We, as mortals, will never solve this.

• People will cry for less government until they need help.They then will blame government.

• The Sugrue brothers will continue their Midas touch with all of their food establishments. Visit any of their restaurants and you will see.

• The Jusst Sooup Ministry will get all approvals needed to continue their wonderful work in providing for others.

• Parking in Rehoboth will be an issue.

• State government will get it right in allowing service organizations to continue having machines of chance in their establisments.

• Cape schools will continue to be in the top of all statewide school rankings.This is a direct result of extremely talented and dedicated teaches doing exemplary work in a sea of change.Thank a teacher !!

• Hopefully we will all realize how fortunate we are to live in this area in the greatest country in the world. (No matter what you hear on the local radio.)
