Fluoride in Bethany water comes with risks
Editor:

I have to confess to rarely reading any of the local papers. There are just too many of them.
As I was leaving Fenwick Hardware I glanced at the headlines of several of these local papers and was arrested by the announcement that Bethany Beach’s water was to be fluoridated.

We shouldn’t have to pay twice for roads
Editor:

The plan to develop every inch of Sussex County has hit a snag.

When the county council approved all of the sprawl it was responsible for over the past 10 or 15 years, it did so without making sure that adequate roads, among other things, were there to support all of that additional traffic.

One solution to traffic concerns offered
Editor:

It’s time to zone and implement some commercial property in outlying areas off Route 26 for local patronage.

The West Avenue to Kent Avenue loop is a good example. In fact, years ago they zoned 5 acres commercial at the corner of West Avenue and Parkerhouse Road.

Well, we got one funeral home.

Community just wants the right to stay put
Editor:

I (my family — Fitzgerald) have lived in a house in the midst of Lynn Lee Village since 1961. It was one of the original Steele family houses, an old farmhouse about 200 years old. The trailers (mobile homes) started coming in about the mid 1960s.

A good business requires environment

Editor:
Many business residents think “the more (customers) the merrier” is a good philosophy. This philosophy of fast growth seems wise in the short run. However, I feel this view is woefully inadequate in the long run.

County-wide voting for Sussex County Council is important
Editor:

All of Sussex County is run by the five people who sit on Sussex County Council. There is no Sussex County executive who is elected by the people.

Three council seats were just decided in 2004 and all three incumbents were re-elected for four more years. They were districts one, two and three.
