Once again last night was cool and for a change from the past hot summer we could open the windows and let the air in, but not for long, by 8 PM the Delmar Speedway was blasting away so the only option you have is to close up the house to keep the noise down. Even that doesn't help.
So now Mark Cathell is trying to sell his "Decorating Delmarva
Holiday Festival of Lights" ideal. A 36-night event,
starting in mid-November, features six major sections on a two-mile tour through
an animated tour of the North Pole, holiday lights and community-built displays
and concludes with a visit to Santa's Village.
He has convinced a number of schools, churches, and other nonprofit
groups to help him sell advance tickets and he will kick back a third of the money to their organization. Are these organizations such money whores that they would help the largest noise polluter in Delmar continue to support his race track? Yes they are. Those organizations could care less about the quality of life in Delmar and we should remember them and their position in supporting the race track endeavors in the future. including any elected officials who decide it is a good thing to support them.
