Fun, sun and safety should all be enjoyed

Game on.

This weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season around this community, and that means plenty of sunscreen, feasting seagulls, surfing, skimboarding, camping, fishing and more. Unfortunately, it also usually means more accidents and injuries.

Another summer full of personal resolutions

The trusted Coastal Point calendar hanging on my wall tells me that we have indeed crossed into another dimension. A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.

Viewpoint: Selbyville starts planning with win-win deal – May 20, 2016

It’s all-too-rare that we see a truly win-win situation in any walk of life. In government, that may be an even rarer situation.

However, we might be seeing that very circumstance happening in Selbyville, as officials there have begun planning the 10-year update to the Town’s comprehensive plan.

Parting shots from some citizens on candidates

Who’s tired of all this rain?

Guest Column: Mitchell: The Donald has a surprise coming if he wins

Donald Trump’s notions about government are drawn from his business principles and experiences. As president, he will suddenly find that his notions are antithetical to governing. He fools his voters by making unrealistic promises that he can’t keep.

Trump’s statements during his campaign for the GOP nomination belie his understanding of how government works.

It’s another chapter in this crazy book we call life

It has been said that each individual’s life is its own book, and the chapters contained within tell the tales of different phases of that person’s life story.

Bail, even a high one, is a risky proposition

In 2012, members of the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force arrested Dagsboro resident Matthew Burton in connection with the murder of Millsboro’s Nicole Bennett.

Our visitors should be welcomed with open arms

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and that dark ring that exists in the armpit area of my shirts is getting regrettably darker.

Haley’s legacy giving a ‘hand up’ to prisoners

As much as restaurateur and philanthropist Matt Haley left the area a legacy of great food, he also left behind him a tremendous legacy of helping people help themselves.

Faith in humanity restored, in an avalanche of food

Once again, I find myself surprised over something that really shouldn’t be all that surprising.

The Donald cries foul

Last week, Donald J. Trump, the GOP frontrunner for the presidency, cried foul in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece that argued that the Colorado GOP had chosen their delegates without voters. Welcome to politics, Mr. Trump!

It feels like a good weekend to have a Jamboree

We are in that little “lull” time of our calendar.

An early Easter has left a little gap before the craziness of summer hits, and even in a year where the holiday does fall a little later, this is still a period of many people collectively catching their breaths before the mayhem descends. Add in a schizophrenic spring as far as weather goes, and it results in a bit of a slow time.

Entertainment is at an all-time high here now

The cherry blossoms are blooming, flowers are budding all around us and the golf courses are filling up around us — yes, spring is in the air, and you can feel the energy and excitement all around us.
