The Ocean View Town Council, in reply to the findings of a study by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, will be creating Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) — a group of resident volunteers who wish to assist the police department or other municipal entities.
We are fickle creatures, by nature.
Youngs explains his situation on council
Editor’s note: The following letter was addressed to the voters of South Bethany and was forwarded to the Coastal Point for publication.
I wish to apologize to the voters of South Bethany – particularly those who voted for me – for not completing my full term on the town council.
The current state of the economy has hit just about everything.
There are a few words, images and symbols that have caused me anxiety over my lifetime.
On Nov. 11, 1918, an armistice was reached to cease hostilities until a final peace treaty could be reached, basically bringing a conclusion to the fighting in World War I.
Ross speaks out on S.B. playground
The much-anticipated mid-term election comes to the nation on Tuesday and, despite the hype and attention surrounding it, we’re still a bit wary about how many people will actually go to the polls to have their say.
It just seems that there are less and less things being made in America these days.
Cripple Creek efforts very succesful
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The White House “turned” pink for one night to bring attention to the search for a cure. NFL teams and college football players wore pink this month to also remind everyone of this cause. Sixty-mile three-day walks have been held all over the country to raise awareness and donations.
Selbyville Pet and Garden Center’s Kevin Lynch was awarded the prestigious Lighthouse Award by the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce during that organization’s annual award ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 14.
The award is viewed as a “lifetime achievement” recognition, for service both to the Chamber and the community at large. Lynch is deserving on both those fronts.
I love my iPhone.
Reader believes Hastings is the choice
My husband and I love Sun Chips. They are all-around a great chip, as I am sure many would agree. That’s why I was so shocked Tuesday morning when I flicked on the news to hear that Sun Chips would be discontinuing the use of their new, (and, dare I say, awesome) biodegradable bag.

I haven’t been at my best this week.
Frankford resident gives take on council
Regarding Frankford’s Oct. 4, meeting:
It was a cold night at 50 degrees, one of the coldest nights this fall.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Wednesday morning that Richard F. Heck, the Willis F. Harrington Professor Emeritus at the University of Delaware, has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, according to a statement on the school’s Web site.
Delaware got a serious shot in the arm in regards to its national identity when Joe Biden got voted in to serve as vice president of the United States. Oh, he gets picked on a bit by the pundits for his propensity to talk a little more than the next guy, but he’s carried himself well and has been a good reflection on the state in general.
A playground obsession in South Bethany
There has been no shortage of news over the past few years regarding local fire companies and their, well, shortage of funds.
If there is one common gripe about the basic economic climate in this area (recent housing woes, notwithstanding), it’s been that there are not enough tech-oriented jobs for young people.
One of our favorite local events is coming up, with Sussex County Council’s Election Year Scholarship Contest.
The English language is a living, breathing organism.
I’m easily distracted.
The town of Bethany Beach has been somewhat under attack recently because it is allowing the Aryan Nations Northeast Region to hold an organized rally — dubbed “White Patriot Day!” on its flyers — at the town’s boardwalk bandstand on Saturday, Sept. 18. And that’s understandable.
Bethany mayor gives his opinion on rally
Bethany Beach has a public plaza, which abuts our bandstand that routinely hosts Town-sponsored entertainment throughout the summer months, as well as other community-related events for local churches, charities and families.
We wrote in this space last week that Labor Day weekend is no longer the definitive end to the season here.
When Brett Favre and his balky ankle take the field Thursday night with his Minnesota Vikings to take on Drew Brees and his defending champion New Orleans Saints, it will mark the official beginning of the 2010 NFL season.
Sea Pines president speaks out against BoA
While it is encouraging to see Sussex County start evaluating the current Board of Adjustment (BoA) operations with a workshop, even though it was devoid of public comment opportunity (“County looks at process,” Coastal Point, Aug. 20, 2010), it is still a “baby step” toward rectifying a flawed governmental agency.
