History Book Festival to host two talks Set May 19 in Lewes Chris Murray edited “Bruce Springsteen: From Asbury Park, to Born To Run, to Born In The USA It has been 43 years since Bruce Springsteen recorded the chartbusting album “Born to Run.” More than 140 million album sales later, Springsteen is considered one of the world’s most successful artists. The History Book Festival’s Spring Preview will host two talks Saturday, May 19, by Chris Murray, who edited “Bruce Springsteen: From Asbury Park, to Born To Run, to Born In The USA.” The book will be available for purchase and signing at both events.
Library event The first author discussion, co-hosted by the Lewes Public Library, will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Lewes Public Library. Co-sponsored by the library and the History Book Festival, the event is free and open to the public. To register, call the library at 302-645-2733 or stop by the circulation desk. Walk-ins also are welcome, space permitting.
Spirited Discussion The second discussion, cosponsored by Dogfish Head, will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Dogfish Inn, 105 Savannah Road in Lewes. The $25 price of admission covers the author’s talk, Dogfish Head beer and spirits, a complimentary Dogfish Head glass and appetizers. To purchase tickets, go to www. historybookfestival.eventbrite. com or buy at the door. A limited number of tickets is available. Murray’s book includes photography by David Gahr, who befriended the rising star and captured his ascent over a 10-year period from Asbury Park to the world stage. The compilation features rare photos of Springsteen recording music, performing at the cramped Bottom Line in Greenwich Village weeks before the release of his seminal “Born to Run” album, and playing to legions of fans during his “Born in the USA” tour. Murray has devoted his life to art and photography. He founded the Govinda Gallery in Washington, D.C., in 1975. He has organized more than 250 exhibitions celebrating many leading artists, including Andy Warhol and the first three exhibitions for

Author L.M. Elliott to appear at Browseabout May 24 L.M. Elliott will be appearing at Browseabout Books to read from and discuss her young adult novel, Hamilton and Peggy! Drawing from historical journals and letters, New York Times bestselling author L.M. Elliott weaves a richly detailed tale about the extraordinary Peggy Schuyler and her revolutionary friendship with Alexander Hamilton. It’s perfect for fans of the smash Broadway musical sensation Hamilton! Peggy Schuyler has always felt
like she’s existed in the shadows of her beloved sisters: the fiery, intelligent Angelica and beautiful, sweet Eliza. But it’s in the throes of a chaotic war that Peggy finds herself a central figure amid Loyalists and Patriots, spies and traitors, friends and family. When a flirtatious aide-de-
camp, Alexander Hamilton, writes to Peggy asking for her help in wooing the earnest Eliza, Peggy finds herself unable to deny such an impassioned plea. A fast friendship forms between the two, but Alexander is caught in the same war as her father, and the danger to all their lives is real.
Everything is a battlefield - from the frontlines to their carefully coded letters - but will Peggy’s bravery’s and intelligence be enough to keep them all safe? Students from Sussex Academy will be performing a Reader’s Theater selection from the book, and attendees can take part in
Hamilton trivia, with prizes to be won. The event will take place on Thursday, May 24th, beginning at 6:00 PM. Browsabout Books is located at 133 Rehoboth Ave. in downtown Rehoboth Beach. For more information, call 302226-2665. LOO

Exhibit features Art Inspired by Travel
Show continues through the end of May at Peninsula Gallery in Lewes In today’s world, travel beyond the shores of the United States has become the norm rather than the exception. Artists are no different, and a new exhibition at the Peninsula Gallery in Lewes features work by seven of them who have visited different countries in Europe over the past 18 months. The show will continue until the end of May. Images may be viewed at peninsula-gallery.com.
Laura Hickman has produced some stunning rooftop and harbor views of Croatia and Portugal in her customary pastel. Lois Engberg and Carole Boggemann-Peirson went to Italy together. Both paint in oil, but Engberg’s work features village street and alleyway scenes, while Boggemann-Peirson has painted the landscapes around those villages. Heather Lynn Gibson spent time in
“Vista, Italy" by Carole Peirson.
Paris. Her urban street scenes are typical of that city, and she has also produced one stunning interior of the Golden Apollo Gallery. Sharon Strine visited London and Madrid. Her work features the ordinary, everyday scenes of local people going about their business. Martha Spak’s moody acrylic paintings center on Italy and France, in particular Venice, Assisi and Paris, while Meg Walsh has concentrated on the countryside of rural France and Italy. She travelled by train with a fellow artist and had no preplanned itinerary.
“Rooftops, Dubrovnik, Croatia,” by Laura Hickman.
Peninsula Gallery is located in the shops at the Beacon, just across the canal bridge on Savannah Road in Lewes, and is now operating summer hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sunday. Call 302-645-0551 for more information.

Sipping and sauntering through a meadow Botanic garden in Dagsboro offers a glimpse of the future By Chris Flood firstname.lastname@example.org The number of neon flags marking plants outnumbered the number of plants on the Delaware Botanic Gardens meadow, but that didn’t bother Piet Oudolf. He’s the famed Dutch gardener and meadow creator, who was on hand May 4 at the gardens’ first public showing. “It has some energy already,” he said, while sitting on one of two grass-covered mounds designed to allow visitors to sit and be a part of the meadow or stand to view the meadow from above. “It’s already creating a level of curiosity.” Sip and Saunter celebrated the gardens’ woodland area, progress made in the meadow, and the recent addition of 30,000 plants and grasses to the 17,000 planted last year. Oudolf’s services are in high demand – he said at any given time, he has 20 projects in some
stage of development. He said he chose to work on this project for two reasons. First was the chance to work on such an isolated piece of land – an open canvas. He said many of his projects are in cities and defined by specific space. “There aren’t many gardens of this size open to the public,” said Oudolf, who among other projects created the High Line in New York City. Oudolf said the second reason was the gardens’ volunteers. “I want to know that if I create something, there will be people after I leave who are going to keep it alive,” he said. “I’ve never seen such a dedicated group of people before. These are skilled people who know what they’re doing.” Oudolf said the majority of the plants are native, but not all of them are. “There’s so many goodnatured plants,” he said, with a smile. “It’s about finding flowers that behave well together.” Delaware Botanic Gardens President Ray Sander said the
event was a chance to introduce the botanic garden to some of the people who were making it happen. Up until now, it took some creativity to see the future, he said. “Now there’s some reality to it,” Sander said. Rep. Ron Gray, R-Selbyville, presented Oudolf with a tribute from the House. Afterward, Gray said before this project took off he didn’t really appreciate the idea of a botanic garden. Now, he said, when traveling, he and his family will stop at other botanic gardens. “You’ve got me in the know,” he said. Gregg Tepper, director of horticulture, was walking around the grounds with a site map giving visitors impromptu overviews of the property. With his trusty hand trowel attached to his shorts, he said the botanic garden was literally and figuratively growing and evolving. Tepper said there is still a lot of work to do, as the botanic gar-

dens are only a couple years into a 10-year plan. “We’ve really just started with the plantings,” he said, clearly excited about the progress and what the future holds. For more information on the

ello, everyone! I’m so excited to be back for another season of Beach Paper. Before I get into it, I’d like to say thank you to each and every one of you who have read my column over these past six (WOW!) years. If this is your first time here, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my content. When I last wrote, we were looking forward to a lot of great fall releases, including Cuphead, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Super Mario Odyssey, and so many more! As usual, I have a huge backlog, but I did manage to play some incredible games over these past eight months. Here are my favorites.
As someone who had never played an entry in the God of War franchise, I didn’t feel like I had the right to play the new one. I didn’t really have it on my radar, but when it came out and I saw my husband playing it, I knew I had to try it myself. I waited for him to finish the story, and then I started my own game. I was absolutely blown away by the visuals, the voice acting, the gameplay, the story ... every aspect of the game. I’ve never played a game quite like this before. I tend to get overwhelmed by open-world games because I want to do all the side quests but never have time to even think about them. At the time of this writing, I still have a little ways to go to complete the story, and after I complete the main story I plan to go back and complete at least a few of the side quests. I am absolutely in love with the world and all the characters, and throwing that damn Leviathan Axe just never gets old. I also love that there
Super Mario Odyssey I had pretty high expectations for this game; I mean, it was basically the reason I bought a Switch. As a big fan of 3D Mario games, I was very excited but a little nervous about this game. It was definitely a new direction for a Mario game, and it ended up surpassing my expectations and then some. The closing sequence in the New Donk City level was one of the coolest level designs I’ve ever seen in a video game, and the Photo Mode is outstanding. I highly
GOD OF WAR (2018) quickly ended up becoming one of my favorite games of all time. (Screenshot by twentyonegunsxo [PSN] via Photo Mode.)

are no “filler” characters; every single character has a purpose and impact on the story. I could not recommend this game enough.
Night in the Woods This game! Man, this game! Thank you to my friend James for recommending this to me. I bought it on sale on the PlayStation Store and went in blind. I had no clue what kind of game this would be, and I never would have predicted the impact it would have on me. For a game with no voice acting, it sure manages to say a lot. The main character, Mae, is someone I can really relate to and care about. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say that you need to give this game a shot if you enjoy great narratives and beautiful art styles in games. You will not be disappointed. Also, the soundtrack is fantastic.
I think TSoT had a little more of a shock factor, and it’s hard to top that game. But TFBW is still an excellent game that any South Park fan will absolutely love.
Far Cry 5 You know when you start playing a game and play for six hours without even realizing it? That’s what happened when I started playing Far Cry 5. The best way I can describe this game is “addictive.” I truly don’t remember the last time I’ve been so addicted to a game that I couldn’t wait to run home and play it after work. The main story is really gripping, and you’ll
want to blow right through the story before really diving into the side missions. It really sucks you in, and I love that. I’m generally not a fan of games where you play as a silent protagonist, but this is an exception. The last Far Cry game I played was 3, where your character was this really forgettable, annoying dude named Jason Brody (honestly, I’m surprised I even remember his name), so I thought it was funny that they just went the silent protagonist route in 5. If you enjoy a good story and great gunplay, you’ll really enjoy this game. What games are you currently playing? Tell me on Twitter or Instagram - @gottosaurus
South Park: The Fractured But Whole I was anxiously awaiting the release of The Fractured But Whole (TFBW, hereafter), the follow-up to South Park: The Stick of Truth (TSoT, hereafter), and pre-ordered it as soon as it went up on the PlayStation Store. If you played TSoT and enjoyed it, you absolutely need to give this one a go. It has all the charm the original had, but with an upgraded battle system and character creation system. You’ll become addicted to leveling up your character and seeing how far they push the envelope in some of the missions.

LETTERS FROM VIETNAM
Memories in Mary’s box tell stories of a war Correspondence from childhood friends is bittersweet remembrance of a turbulent decade By Ron MacArthur email@example.com
ary O'Grady pulls out an old wooden box filled with letters, and the memories start to flow. A few tears flow also as she recalls the stories in those letters from two childhood friends who went to Vietnam in the late 1960s. Andre Devigne, a Marine, and George Holiat, who served in the Army, fought in the war in 1966 and 1967. “Even after all these years, Andre and George have a story to tell,” she said. “I've kept those memories in a box for 52 years. She says there must be a reason she kept the box. “I want their story told because of what the war did to them,” she said. Seven of her friends went to Vietnam; three were killed in action and another died from a heroin overdose soon after returning home. They were all in their late teens when they went to war. Mary talks about what the letters reveal about their time in Vietnam, but it's also the story of Mary's life – what was and what could have been. Living in the Bronx, N.Y., she was still in high school, just 16 years old in Catholic school when she first received the letters. Mary and her friends were known as the Devoe Gang because they hung out at a neighborhood park with that name. Little did they know as they entered their teen years that a war in a country most had never heard of would change their lives forever. It was the 1960s, one of the most turbulent decades in recent American history. She pulls out an old photo album filled with photos of the gang. “This was our life,” she says. “It's high school graduations and weddings.” Then she looks at Polaroid photos sent to her from Vietnam. “Nobody came back the same,” she said. George, who was wounded and sent home early, describes in vivid detail
The letters were sent during a period covering two years – 1966 and 1967.
Your letters help me from going crazy.” - ANDRE DEVIGNE
his thoughts about the war. He said he volunteered for the most dangerous missions taking the place of men who had wives, families and girlfriends back home. Andre wrote that he thought he was losing his mind. “The pain is too much. I'm going crazy over here,” he wrote, adding writing letters to Mary helped him find solace. “Some of what I read was hard for a 17-year-old girl from Catholic school to understand,” she said.
Some letters have been destroyed She actually received letters from three friends, but one set has been destroyed – those from her childhood sweetheart she had planned to marry when he returned from Vietnam, a friend she loved with all her heart. But Bernhardt Schroeder, known as Bunny, was not the same man when he came back from Vietnam, she said. “We had the rings, the invitations and my gown,” she said. “But he had changed. I told him that he had so much to work

through. And I'll never forget what he said to me. He told me that he was very lucky to have me because I loved him enough to let him go,” she said. She says that day in his apartment is one she'll never forget. She even remembers the song that was playing in the background, the Moody Blues' “Nights in White Satin.” They have remained friends for the past 50 years, and they still exchange phone calls from time to time. “His life turned out very well,” she said. “He turned his life around. We have no regrets.” “I burned his letters because they were love letters that no one else needed to see,” she said. Before Bunny left for Vietnam, he was stationed in Washington, D.C., and visited Mary as much as possible. Mary said she was disappointed that he could not get back home for her prom. “I didn't buy a dress but he showed up anyway at the front door in his beautiful uniform. We went out by ourselves – it was the best prom party I ever had,” she said.
Life after the Vietnam War Bernhardt “Bunny” Schroeder quit college and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force.
To see more photos and excerpts from the letters go to:
Andre Devigne poses in front of his tent in this photo from June 1967.
Mary's life also turned out well. After marrying and having a son in New York, she divorced and moved to the Lewes area. “We needed a new start,” she said. She had visited Lewes with a friend one weekend. “I hate to think where our lives would be now if not for that visit to Lewes. It has brought us all our happiness,” she said.
Mary, a retired registered nurse who also graduated from art school in New York, lives in a modest home in White House Beach in Long Neck with a great view of the Indian River Inlet bridge. She has a granddaughter and son and daughter-law-law who both work for the Cape Henlopen School District. Mary said she has only seen Andre once since the 1960s. “He was visiting his mother in New York, and I happened to be there. I was shocked how he looked. His hair was really long, and he had been dropping a lot of acid,” she said. “He told me I had a white-light aura around me. ‘It's the highest an aura can be. You are very close to God,’ he told me. After that I never saw him again.” It's sad, Mary says, because he always had the dream of being a John Waynetype, gung-ho Marine, even when he was young. “‘They lied to me. All they did was teach me to kill,’ he told me,” Mary said. She's pretty sure he is living in San Francisco. “I called him once, and all he asked me was if I remembered the beauty contest in the park. He told me that I was always the prettiest girl, and he voted for me,” she said. “It's funny he would bring that up.” Once she read George's last letter she never heard from him again. “All I know is that they sent him home early,” she said. Mary is still sad that she lost contact with George because she looked to him for advice as a family friend.

Local filmmakers to highlight May 17 Revival House A host of talented local filmmakers will be featured at the Revival House’s third annual “Don’t Hassle Me, I’m Local” event at the Milton Theatre Thursday, May 17. This year marks the third year for the largest gathering of local shorts in the area, with a mix of comedy, drama, suspense and fun, along with music from local favorite Walt Hetfield, art from Keith Mosher and Scott “Skybox Scotty” Deming, a selection of more than 15 craft beers, wines, and Maine Root craft sodas and root beers. Doors open at 6 p.m., when guests are invited to hear a set by Hetfield and browse the local artwork and photography or sample a beverage (or two). • The Stage - Whether it’s his bespectacled Buddy Holly performance, or hosting Mr. Hetfield’s Rock n Roll Summer
Camp (now in its 19th year), or in his role as music director at Rehoboth Elementary School, Hetfield has been performing for generations of fans in the Delaware area. Hetfield has performed with several bands for more than three decades, including the Sideminders, Key North, Little Sister, Prairie Dog, Phaydrah, and his ever-popular “Oh Boy!” salute to Buddy Holly. • The Art - Since 2002, Mosher has been capturing the state through film and graphic design with a unique flair that is iconic as his omnipresent 302 Horseshoe Crab logo that has emblazoned thousands of shirts and hats throughout the area. As the owner of KAM Photography and KAM Productions, Mosher has crafted indelible images with his lens and handcrafted clothing, art and drums that have leapt off the shelves at the Brush Factory in Lewes and Lifecycle in Milford. With a distinct style, Mosher’s art demonstrates deep Delaware roots. Deming is a local artist, photographer and host of LoDel Live, the open mic event at the Milton Theatre. He has been crafting original art both solo and as part of the Dewey Artist Collaboration for the past several years. Deming graduated from Cape Henlopen High School and the University of Delaware with a degree in English education. He has studied major literary, intellectual and artistic movements throughout human history. • The Films - The film program will begin at 7 p.m. and

will highlight eight local talented filmmakers’ short films, followed by a question-and-answer session with all the directors immediately following the screening. The film submissions are: Now in its third year, “Don’t Hassle Me, I’m Local,” is a celebration of local and regional filmmakers representing the diverse tapestry of filmmakers the state and area has to offer. “There are so many talented filmmakers
in the area and so few venues to showcase their works,” said the Revival House’s Rob Waters. “Don’t Hassle Me” is such a great platform to exhibit their works, have them seen by a large audience and introduce them to the crowd.” The Revival House is dedicated to local filmmakers, often starting its monthly screenings with local shorts and holding multiple showcases for filmmakers.

RAL names 2018 Cottage Tour artist The Rehoboth Art League has awarded artist Dale Sheldon the commission to paint the eight homes on the 2018 Cottage Tour of Art, to be held this July. Sheldon studied at Moore College of Art in Philadlephia and graduated with honors from the University of Maryland. Exploring a variety of subject matter, Sheldon is a painter who works dynamically with a sense of immediacy and luminous color. She is primarily a studio painter, collecting images and impressions from around the world. Exploring light and atmosphere, and color relationships, her paintings interpret and express moods, memories or impressions. Her style of painting with watercolor reflects both wet on wet and layering techniques with rich color washes, while fluid acrylic paintings with masking techniques create flat and bold graphic images. An award-winning artist, Sheldon is a member of Potomac Valley Watercolorists, a founding officer and signature member of the Delaware Watercolor Society, and a signature member of Baltimore Watercolor Society. She was a participating artist in Rehoboth Beach's Dolphins: the SEAquel, a Rehoboth Beach Main Street/Rehoboth Art League installation project. Her paintings were part of an international exhibition shown in Cairo, Egypt, and she has shown in Greve in Chianti, Italy. Her paintings can be seen at Gallery One in Ocean View, the Rehoboth Art League in Henlopen Acres, and in various other shows, exhibitions and private collections.
DALE SHELDON WILL CREATE a pastel of each of the houses on the 2018 Rehoboth Art League Cottage Tour.
The 69th Annual Cottage Tour of Art will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday, July 10 and 11. Sheldon will create a pastel of each of the seven private homes, as well as the art league's historic Peter Marsh Homestead. Images of Sheldon's works will be used in the tour program, and her original watercolors will be awarded to the homeowners during a June thank you reception. Sheldon's rendition of the historic Homestead will be available for purchase as a giclée print in the gallery during the Cottage Tour. Cottage Tour tickets are $35 per person. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.rehobothartleague.org or call 302-227-8408. The tour is appropriate for ages 13 and above. By mid-June, tickets will also be available at several local locations to be announced on the website. The Cottage Tour of Art is underwritten by J. Conn Scott.

Judy Sings the Blues to hold CD Release Party Bethany Blues to host a night of music, food May 18 By Phillip Moore email@example.com A CD release party to celebrate the band’s first CD will be held for Lewesbased blues band Judy Sings the Blues, from 8:30 to 11 p.m., Friday, May 18, at Bethany Blues in Lewes, the venue where the band first performed. Judy Sings the Blues is a contemporary, soulful and funky blues band that has played at southern Delaware venues and festivals over the past four years. They have also been booked for the upcoming 21st annual Riverfront Blues Festival at Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park in Wilmington, Friday through Sunday, Aug. 3-5. The band features lead vocalist and percussionist Judy Mangini, Eric Zoeckler on lead guitar, drummer James Sudimak, and bass player and vocalist Carl “Smiley” Thompson. Mangini has been performing and singing with local bands since the age of 16, and she continues to share her passion at the age of 58, revisiting her dream to write and perform music after raising a family in Delaware. “Never give up on your dreams,” she said. Zoeckler, originally from Washington, D.C., has played various types of clubs, festivals, and venues. He draws his energy from the crowd and makes sure to leave it all on the stage. He loves to perform in

front of a crowd, no matter how big or small. Sudimak has been playing the drums since the age of 11, and attended The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City from 2011-13. He has many interests, among them expanding the local music and arts scene. Thompson earned the nickname “Smiley” based on his pure joy in performing for others with a smile always on his face. Thompson started with brass instruments, but truly found his passion when teaching himself the bass. “Playing the blues is not just playing music. It is a feeling from deep within
your soul capturing the moments in life that make or break you, and telling a story that people can relate to. Sharing your emotions with complete strangers and knowing that they can relate, they have been there too. That is what we do, and that is who we are,” a statement made by Judy Sings the Blues. The new CD has been a dream for some time, Mangini said. The band will perform, and different specials will be available during the evening, including a drink named after the CD. The first 25 people to buy their new CD will receive a free band T-shirt. The band invites the community to celebrate its release and enjoy the night.

5th Avenue Jazz Trio to perform shows in Rehoboth Ensemble brings talent to local venues By Phillip Moore firstname.lastname@example.org The 5th Avenue Jazz Trio will perform at Rehoboth’s Bluecoast Seafood Grill at 5 p.m., Saturday, May 19, and Java Jukebox at 7 p.m., Thursday, May 31. “5th Avenue is an elegant and intimate music experience, with a mix of selections from the Great American Songbook, jazz classics and original works. 5th Avenue exudes a level of virtuosity and charm that delights audiences at every performance,” from 5th Avenue Jazz Trio.
“WE LOVE BEING ABLE TO BRING OUR BRAND OF INTIMATE JAZZ TO THE EASTERN SHORE.” - KEN SCHLEIFER
Each member of 5th Avenue has been studying and playing music since childhood. Jeff Cooper, double bass, has for years been a professional, full-time musician specializing in pop, jazz and theater music. He has performed at the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, the Hippodrome Theater, Ford’s Theater and other venues up and down the East Coast, including presidential inaugural balls.
Alto saxophone and clarinet player and current Georgetown resident Ken Cicerale, a former student of legendary saxophonists Gerry Niewood and Frank Foster, has toured with several nationally known artists. Cicerale has also composed and performed music for highly acclaimed offBroadway plays and worked as an executive of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers in New York City. Rounding out the trio is Ken Schleifer, a lifelong drummer, percussionist and vocalist who has traveled all over the East Coast performing with various musical groups. Schleifer turned his passion for music into teaching and has a diverse background in music, performing classic rock, R&B, big band, blues, Latin and contemporary pop. He has now returned to his passion for jazz. “Jazz has been our focus with 5th Avenue, mainly because it allows us the greatest amount of freedom and creativity. And we love being able to bring our brand of intimate jazz to the Eastern Shore because it is what we love to do most, but also because there is such of scarcity of it here,” said Cicerale. “Our mission is to provide the very highest level of jazz

artistry to the greater Rehoboth area on a regular basis.” When asked about the band’s recent show at historic Milton Theatre, Cicerale responded, “One of the things we have noticed from our wonderful experiences performing at the Milton Theatre and various venues in and around Rehoboth Beach is that many people who might not think they like jazz, or understand
it, or would not think to go out to listen to it, come away from our performances with a newfound or rekindled love for the music we play.” He said in addition to a high level of musicianship, “The reason for this is that we make our music accessible to both jazz aficionados as well as people less familiar with the idiom.” He said the band is true to the
jazz brand in its presentation. “We dress mostly in suits and ties as a show of respect for our audience and for what we do. Our manner is friendly, entertaining and easy-going; we are serious about what we do, but we don't take ourselves too seriously.” The jazz trio hopes to see a great crowd at its upcoming shows.

Cuvée Ray in Rehoboth to offer sips and songs Music influencer Sydney Arzt to book acts in the former home of Sydney’s Blues & Jazz In the 1990s, when people wanted to dine well and enjoy live music in Rehoboth, they headed to Sydney's Jazz & Blues Restaurant, where owner Sydney Arzt showcased first-class talent and tasty Creole dishes. Now, history is about to repeat itself. Cuvée Ray Wine Bar and Restaurant is now under construction in the same building that once housed Sydney's, and Arzt will book live music when the restaurant opens. "There's such a strong connection between wine and music," said Ray Kurz, who owns the restaurant with his wife Debbie. "You'll often see wine described as harmonious or, like a symphony, that it's complicated. It has low notes and high notes." It was serendipitous that Cuvée Ray is in Sydney's old space,
he said. He was thrilled to bring Arzt on board. "She has a solid reputation for spotting talent, and we trust her judgment," he said. Arzt broke new ground in the late 1980s and 1990s when she put jazz-and-blues acts in a fullservice Rehoboth restaurant. Her annual Jazz Jams funded a scholarship in the name of Larry "Scotty" Scott, a legendary local performer. She is also a founder of the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival, a successful event for nearly three decades. Sydney's closed in 2006, but Arzt continued to book music for local venues. She is also the former executive director of the Schwartz Center for the Arts in Dover. She is excited to come full circle. "My renewed association to the location where I spent 20 years is an astounding turn of
events," she said. "It allows me to combine two of my life passions: music and wine." Cuvée Ray will feature entertainment during happy hours on Thursdays, when the chef will create a special menu that complements the artist's style. Guests will also be able to enjoy light acoustic rock and pop after the dinner service on Saturday night. "We'll feature some of the area's finest guitarists and vocalists," Arzt said. The Jazz Brunch on Sundays will also showcase performers, such as the new 2nd Time Around jazz organ trio on Sunday, July 1. The renovated space will include a wine room that can seat up to 12. The restaurant will seat 100 guests when complete. There is also an intimate patio. Expect the same soulfulness and dedication to good times of the Sydney's days, Arzt said. "Ray and his wife Debbie have a vision that will put a new stamp of joy on our community," she said. "I am very pleased to participate."
CUVÉE RAY WINE BAR & RESTAURANT owner Ray Kurz, right, has hired Sydney Arzt to book music at his new restaurant, which is scheduled to open this spring. Arzt previously owned Sydney’s Blues & Jazz Restaurant in the same space.

STEPPIN’ UP TO THE PLATE REHOBOTH FOODIE
e got busy around here when the vacationers weren’t looking. Fortunately, The Rehoboth Foodie has pledged every waking moment to keeping Beach Paper readers on the leading edge. So let’s get down to business. This spring, Bryan Derrickson’s Conch Island Key West Bar & Grill launched a fullcourt press to raise the visibility of his surprisingly good food! In fact, he’s celebrating his special steak night this coming Sunday with my new musical group, 2nd Time Around! Check it out and get a great steak (or burger – or conch chowder) and some tasty music in the process. Just last week we welcomed Tonya and Francesco’s Azzurro to downtown Rehoboth at 2nd & Wilmington where Chez la Mer and Papa Grande’s used to be. The treehouse is open and waiting for sunset lovers. Around the corner, visitors might notice some major changes at Dogfish Head.
Like the brand new all-glass merchandise/beer outlet. Or the huge brewpub with a built-in live-music venue. (Don’t miss the mac & cheese!) G Rehoboth (where Cloud 9 and Lula Brazil used to dwell) has come into its own as one of the newest stops on the Eating Rehoboth restaurant tour itinerary. You’ll love what Karly (the boss) has done with the décor and what Ross Thompson - local Lewes boy and executive chef - has done with the menu. Within a few days, upstate upstart Iron Hill Brewery will be up and running out on the highway by Tanger Seaside. The place seats a small army divided up among event spaces, a huge bar and an even bigger outdoor patio. I tried their beers last week and you’re in for a surprise. No trip to Delaware is complete without a visit to the new Big Chill Beach Club at the southeastern end of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. The stars of the show are Billy Lucas’ (of Taco Reho fame) uncomplicated beach fare and that 40-foot diameter electric umbrella. Watching it open and close is a life experience. Cuvee Ray wine bar will be opening downtown in the old Sydney’s / Pig & Fish Restaurant Company spot very soon, with Bramble & Brine’s Joey Churchman in the kitchen. (Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 1! Jazz brunch with 2nd Time Around starting at 10:30 a.m.) Speaking of wine, Joe Lertch and his Vineyard Wine Bar will soon be re-opening after a devastating fire that required the replacement of just about everything in that newly remodeled spot. It’s where Espuma used to be at First and Wilmington. Denizens of Lewes were
getting tired of looking at the vacant spot – right on the water – where The Wharf used to be. Well, vacant no more! The Jacona brothers from Zogg’s / Sea Hogg Truck teamed up with Al Tortella from Long Neck’s Paradise Grill to open The Wheelhouse. They REALLY cleaned the place up, and the menu is simple and straightahead. All that and an amazing view. Speaking of Lewes, Chef Danio Somoza’s new Harvest Tide Steakhouse will soon be open on Savannah Road just a block or two from The Wheelhouse. Danio distinguished himself at 99 Sea Level in Bethany and promises to keep the tradition of high-quality vittles – with great steaks in the spotlight. Up Savannah Road a bit, Petru Cornescu of Pete’ Steak Shop took over ownership of Honey’s Farm Fresh. Breakfasts are the star of the show. And yes, there is parking in back! In downtown Rehoboth, you might notice the absence of Jakes Seafood from the corner of Baltimore Ave. and First St. The spot won’t be empty for long. Word on the street is that the crew from Surfing Crab in Lewes will bring their steamed crustaceans and crab cakes to that highly visible venue. At the other end of Baltimore Avenue, the long-gone Hobos is being replaced by The Pines. It will take a while to remodel that venerable building, but former Baltimore Orioles baseball player Tyler Townsend and partner Bob Suppies are well on their way to opening day. Back out on The Avenue, Fins Fish House & Raw Bar has reopened after being closed most of the winter for a major remodel. It’s brighter, roomier, and the menu – and
bloody marys – are just as good as ever. And don’t miss Cooter Brown’s Twisted Southern Kitchen overlooking the corner of First and The Avenue at First Street Station. Bourbon. Fried chicken. More bourbon. Frito Pie & a sly sense of humor. What’s not to like!

Bloody Mary Contest set May 20 at The Starboard If you want to see the boldest, bravest, and bloodiest marys on the East Coast, then you need to get yourself down to The Starboard’s 5th Annual Bloody Mary Contest sponsored by Tito’s, Sunday, May 20 at 3 p.m. Bloody builders from up and down the Delaware Coast will be concocting the most ridiculous bloodies you’ve ever seen and you won’t want to miss this action. $500 and all the bragging rights are on the line this year as The Starboard staff prepares to defend their home turf against some supreme competition.

Bloody Mary Contest, is ready to see if they can re-ignite the magic and take down The Starboard’s home advantage. Steve “Monty” Montgomery, owner of the Starboard, loves good competition among friends. “After Blues won at Seacrets, I told our staff, ‘Well, you can’t win them all.’ And as happy as I am for Bethany Blues, you know The Starboard has a killer bloody, so we’ll see what happens on the 20th.” This is a showdown you won’t want to miss as so many talented chefs and mixologists combine forces to explode your tastebuds and dazzle your senses. Five main judges will sip their

Spring Has Sprung...Maybe? THE 19TH HOLE GENE BLEILE
t doesn’t matter if you’re a novice, serious golfer or a dedicated pro; when the daffodils start to bloom, you can hear your golf clubs calling to you from their storage area. If you are a really serious novice, advanced golfer, dedicated pro or just want to get out of the house, you played golf during the winter in cold weather, wind and maybe even snow flurries. The spring of 2018 has been one for the record books. It seems like every day is an adventure. Is it going to feel like spring, summer or fall? Well, the weather man - like a sports bookie - seems to cover all scenarios each morning. But one thing is clear: It is time to play golf every chance you get. So if you think this column is about swing tips, stretching exercises, getting your clubs re-gripped and buying new golf balls, you would be wrong. I’m going to remind you that every swing in the coming year can be an adventure, even if you are a novice, serious golfer or dedicated professional. With that in mind, I am going to tell you about some golf swings that ended with some not only amazing, but wacky results. So next time you make a bad shot, relax, take a deep breath and think of some of these golfers and the day they had on the course.
Strange But True! Golfer #1: Bill Morse celebrated his 51st birthday playing a round of golf with his friends back in 1997 and shot a hole-inone on (sort of) on the very first hole at the Farmington Country Club in Hartford, Connecticut. Morse teed it up and let it rip! The ball hooked through a grove of large spruce trees, caromed off a tree trunk, then ricocheted off a large rock near the cart path, went airborne and rolled onto the 18th green, traveled approximately 40 feet and rolled into the cup. It is still unclear whether he
had to hit a provisional ball, or pay for drinks at the clubhouse! Golfer #2: English golfer, Nigel Denham, was playing in an amateur Stroke Play Tournament, in 1974 at Leeds, England. His approach shot to the 18th green was still airborne, when it landed near the open clubhouse door and rolled to a stop on the carpet inside a room facing the green. Since the local rule stated, “the clubhouse was still inbounds,” someone opened a widow and Denham chipped the ball onto the green and two putted for a bogey five. Golfer # 3: Playing at England’s Coswald Hills Golf Club in 1959, John Remington, another English golfer, shot a legitimate hole-in-one, but the ball had an adventure before it arrived in the cup. Remington stood on the 7th tee box, a par three, with a five iron, took his swing and let it fly. The ball took a wicked hook and headed for a drainage ditch, where it hit a drain pipe and ricocheted toward a greenside bunker. Now if you remember Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, a body in motion tends to stay in motion, until it hits a rake in the bunker and carries onto the green. Part two of that theory takes place, when the ball rolls toward the hole, caroms off another ball and goes into the hole. (In England, I believe this is known as bumper golf or a hole-in-one by any other name is still a rose, but not Justin). Think about it. Golfer #4: Back to America! In 1952, golfer Bud Hoelscher was playing in the Los Angeles Open when he launched his approach shot to the 18th green. Standing greenside (in the wrong place at the wrong time) was a TV cameraman and the announcer. Hoelscher’s ball bounced off the cameraman’s head, opening a cut, then ricocheted off the announcer’s face and landed on the green. Hoelscher arrived at the scene then calmly two putted for a par. No follow up as to how many stitches the cameraman needed to close the cut. Golfer #4: And finally, in 1990, pro golfer Bernard Langer was playing in a tournament in South Africa when his approach to a green landed on the roof of a rain shelter. He climbed to the roof, pitched his ball from the lie (10 Continued on page 25

Awaiting bluefish FISHING REPORT
elcome back! The winter was not so bad. And we were so busy that we hardly noticed it fly by. OK. That’s a joke: It was long and cold and we hated just about every minute of it! However, we did get to spend a lot of time planning this year’s surf fishing tournaments and the Delmarva Outdoors Expo. And, living at the beach in the winter makes up for it being winter. We do get to spend some time on the sand alone. Hope you had a good winter and I think we’re all ready for a great summer. Spring fishing just picked up to where it was this time last year. We have been patiently waiting for the big bluefish and the black drum to show up. All of the good fishing has really picked up in the last week so you are just in time. Striped bass have been running and the short striped bass action, though hot since February, has really amped up. Clam is the bait of choice with bunker right behind it. Bloodworms have been great for short bass and puffer fish in the surf, but everything seems to be hitting clam. That is par for the course in the spring and soon we will see bunker and bloodworms as the bait of choice. The Cape Henlopen pier to Fenwick Island beaches has been decent for action. You just have to be there when it hap-

pens. Sea bass started this week and the boats will be out in full force. The best time to rent a charter is the weekdays. When there are fewer boats out there you don’t have as much competition.
Chillaware Fishing Tournament Last Saturday was a great day despite the bit of weather. We had 290 anglers in the innagural Chillaware Island Spring Surf Fishing Tournament. I want to thank our sponsors, without them this would not have been possible: Sweetwater Brewery, Big Chill Beach Club, Liquid Board Shop, WBOC, Diamond State Custom Tackle, Helly Hansen, Fenwick Tackle, Crooked Hammock, Fork + Flask, Icehouse Bait and Tackle, Lighthouse Bait and Tackle, Big Chill Surf Cantina, Taco Reho, Coastal Contracting, El Dorado restaurant and Madda Fella. Even more thanks to our judges: Suzanne Martin, Corby Fulton, Chris Gibbons, Mike Eckert, Andrew Hansen, David Okonewski, Mark King, and Frank Bolen Sr. You all did a great job, especially counting skates of which there were hundreds! The skating rink is a fun Calcutta, but a job and a half verifying that they are caught and released. Thank you all! There were not a lot of fish caught but just about everyone
caught something, especially skates. That is the reason we have the skating rink Calcutta. You are going to see a lot of them during a tournament, might as well make it fun for the anglers with a shot at some money for “trash” fish. Next year we are thinking about a chef and a grill for skate tacos at the end of the day. They are good to eat! The first thirty minutes a guy was walking off the beach at southside with a thirty-plusinch bluefish. Everyone looked at me, and when I signaled he wasn’t in the tournament, a cheer went up. He was excited thinking everyone liked his fish, but no, sir … they are happy you are not in the tournament. That catch got people hopeful to see some more bass caught at the end of the tournament. This is why you never quit early, even if you are in the lead. Most of the fish scored were northern pufferfish. We had one drum score, some kingfish, and a few bluefish. There were a lot of shad in the surf. We will add them to next year’s list. Irish started targeting puffers the last couple of hours of the tournament and did very well. That is the thing about tournaments, you have to go in with a strategy and possibly change it up as you go. A change-up can mean the difference between winning and not placing. No one loses in a fishing tournament, you have fun and it
is a great day at the beach. That is the beauty of fishing tournaments. We try to make them as fun as possible by doing different things for the anglers. The skating rink and dogpound Calcutta are one way to let everyone have a shot at winning some extra money. The guys who caught the most skates were having their own contest to out-skate one another. I should have made a side bet
on these two … it was hilarious to watch. Save May 4th, 2019 for next year’s Chillaware Island Spring Surf Fishing Tournament. May The Fish Be With You. The upcoming tournament is War On The Shore and we will get that rolling in June. The October 13 and 14th payout will be up to $10,000 based on the number of anglers that participate. We will have details up in the next couple of weeks.
