2023 Club Meetings 

May Meeting Highlights

Our speaker for May's meeting was Michael Vincent, Council President of the 5 member Sussex County Council. He explained the many projects underway by the council, fielding questions on many. Highlights are: DELDOT has committed $1B ( yes, billion) to roads in Sussex County, the Business Park behind the airport is progressing, Paramedics will now be carrying whole blood, (O Negative) in ambulances, the new paramedic training center will be opening soon which includes a certified laboratory, and 90% of real estate transfer tax received by the county goes to public safety.


There has been a national increase in real estate fraud. The County offers a notification system to property owners. To receive a Property Fraud Alert, register on the Sussex County website with the Recorder of Deeds. Look for Recording Activity Notification to get an email notification every time a land record is recorded in a registered name.  Staff in the Recorder of Deeds office are very helpful if you need assistance.

April Meeting Highlights

The club was educated and amused by Loren Spivack at this months meeting. He is the founder of “Free Market Warrior” in 2009 which attempts  to make a positive difference in the American politics and economics.  He spoke on the current division in our country and his simple description of socialism..(A)someone has a vision and (B)that person believes that they are entitled to use the Power of State to impose that vision on anyone outside their vision…..sound familiar????


Mr. Spivack has written seven books, under the pen name of Dr. Truth, which are parodies of  several political personalities and families using characters similar to familiar Dr. Suess characters. They are written in rhymes with clever illustrations.  He has introduced  his latest book “Kamalot” about the Biden Family and Kamala Harris.

March Meeting Highlights

37th District Representative Ruth Briggs King, a SCRWC club member and the only GOP female elected to the DE General Assembly, updated members on some things going on in Dover. She spoke on the woke agenda distracting us from significant changes in our society.

The first of five Town Hall Meetings on the governor’s EV mandate had an overwhelming turnout. (A recording of the evening is available on our home page along with future Town Hall Meeting dates.)

She also advised that our Senator Chris Coons recently made a visit to our southern border. His reaction was “There is a crisis!”…”The Border is Broken!”???? Better late than never….

2023 1 Dr David Legates Climatologist_ed

Guest speaker Dr. David Legates, C.C.M., a climatologist and a former Delaware state climatologist.

2023 1 Presentation.JPG

At our 1/25/23 meeting we were entertained and educated by Dr. David Legates, C.C.M., a climatologist and a former Delaware state climatologist. He presented documented evidence that support “global warming crisis” as exaggerated. Charts and graph showed minimal changes back as far as 1895, as well as evidence that CO2 emissions support plant growth, which many feel is beneficial. Delaware is a member of RGGI, Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a cooperative effort among 12 eastern states to reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuel (coal, oil & natural gas) power plants. [Although the RGGI is often called a “cap and trade” program, its effect is the same as a direct tax or fee on emissions because RGGI allowance costs are passed on from electric generators to distribution companies to consumers. Could this be the reason for the DELMARVA rate increase last month?????]

This is a very broad topic, and our speaker piqued the interest in many listeners to learn more, especially in light of Gov. Carney’s proposed DNREC regulation change.  Read more in the 1/23 edition of the Delaware Times.
