Deaver left an impression on county, council

Joan Deaver did indeed have a voice before she joined Sussex County Council in 2008 — but she gained a much larger platform for her words the day she took office.

A really good gift is thought-out and personalized

Life is a quest.

It is a quest for knowledge. A quest for love. A quest for material possessions. And a quest for the perfect bottle of wine to share with your cat.

Guest Column –Development challenges all progress in Inland Bays

The 35 square miles of Delaware’s Inland Bays make up a treasure all of us want to see thrive. As a new “State of the Bays” report from the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays documents, there are encouraging signs that water quality in the bays is improving, and the report shows people from many corners are successfully reducing nutrient inputs in the bays’ watershed.

Any of us can truly have an impact on the world

One of the most well-read sections of our paper online is the obituary listings.

That’s not uncommon, actually, as obituaries, sports and letters are traditionally popular sections of papers throughout the industry. People want to see if they knew someone who passed, how their favorite sports teams or athletes are faring and what issues are making people crazy at any given time.

On behalf of my 12 co-workers and myself who worked at the polls, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Hocker’s G&E and DiFebo’s restaurant for the delicious food they provide for our lunch and dinner.

Editorial – November offers some of the best we have

There would be no need for polling to determine that fall is the season of choice for many people who live in this community.

Point of No Return – Our world is nuts. Let’s focus on a turkey-dog

Sigh.

Racist graffiti and damage done to churches, schools and municipal buildings across the country. Protestors spitting on the concept of peaceful and lawful assembly by doing their own damage and extending hate. It’s enough to make you want to climb a mountain, put together a hovel crafted of branches, dirt and whatever else one might find on top of a mountain and just trade in this life of insanity that envelops us for the quiet solitude of the mountain hermit.

Hoo-ray.

The end is nigh. The chickens are coming home to roost. The fat lady is singing, and the witching hour is now upon us.

Ocean View book gets a strong review

Editor:

Congratulations on the Coastal Point’s amazing booklet on the history and culture of Ocean View.

It was very well-researched, well-written and held our interest from page one. It covered an amazing amount of history and had great photographs, as well.

Congratulations on a great job!

New Harim hatchery could be a big positive

Allen Harim announced on Monday that they will be building a $22 million state-of-the-art hatchery near Dagsboro, with an egg-set capacity of 2.5 million eggs per week. That, it would appear, is a lot of eggs.

Home is where the heart is... It’s that simple

Sometimes, you have to go home to know that you’re not really home.

Editorial – LWVSC putting in effort, time for community

The League of Women Voters of Sussex County (LWVSC) rocks.

There. We said it. A local organization, comprising volunteers throughout our community, flat-out rocks. Let us explain.

Point of No Return – Decisions can sometimes be made for you

It’s been said that the path of an individual’s life is often set by a series of decisions.

Reminder regarding Letters to the Editor

Per our policy, we will not run any letters to the editor the week before the Nov. 8 election. Therefore, our Oct. 28 issue will be the last time readers can promote any candidates for this year’s general election.

Also, and this is important, we expect our letters to be supportive of candidates, as opposed to bringing the conversation into the gutter.
