Honoring John Rieley johnrieley There’s a big flap over an upcoming dinner sponsored by some group called the Western Sussex committee. Ostensibly the dinner is meant to honor Rieley for his service as Chair of the Sussex GOP. Came across this picture and thought it should be shared.

Smyk holds meetings very early in the morn at the local Surf Bagel on Route 1-right across the street from my church, in fact. I think the guy standing looks like Putin. stevesmykmeetingpic ======================

    Herring Point, Cape Henlopen. You can smoke in your car if you keep the windows up.

    Actually, you can still smoke everywhere but the Pavillion, Snack Bar/shower area and so on.

    There are no beaches in Delaware that allow “cars” to drive on them. One must own a 4×4 (4 wheel drive vehicle). An annual OSV (Over Sand Vehicle) permit is required which is purchased from the state. There is also specific equipment required to be with the permitted OSV (shovel, tow strap or chain, jack plank, tire pressure gauge and jack). In order to drive on one of the beaches where vehicles are allowed you must be ACTIVELY surf fishing.


    The Delaware Brethren of the Coast is a group of people, businesses and organizations concerned over the future access of Delaware beaches by OSV for the purpose of surf fishing. DBOC was created by like minded individuals, organizations and businesses who has seen what has happened in the OBX, and other beaches from Maine to the Keys. DBOC supporters do not want to see the same happen here in Delaware. Don’t believe it can’t happen here. The people in the OBX thought the same thing, take a look at the OBX. It is a crying shame that people refuse to take heed about this issue. We do have a National Park in Delaware, but it is a “hub”. That is what they are calling it here in Delaware. Remember Mr. Carpers first attempt at a National Park in Delaware was out “Coastal Defense System”. That is our towers on our beaches, Fort Miles and many more places. We were able to beat that back, but plans to include our beaches are still in the works folks. These attempts continue as we foil the plans to include our beaches in the NPS. The Delaware Bayshore Intitative was to include the Cape Henlopen beaches and we got that removed from the map for the anglers and the attempt to include our beaches continues. Sec of DNREC wanted to have the Delaware Bayshore. You CANNOT join DBOC. DBOC has no dues to pay and ask for nothing other than your support.
