Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
BANNER PLANE MAKES EMERGENCY LANDING
This 1953 Piper PA-18A dropped its banner over Cape Henlopen State Park, then made an emergency landing around 11:20 a.m. Saturday. The plane landed in a farm field near the Glade development on Holland Glade Road (Road 271). No damage and no injuries were reported. The state police notified the FAA to investigate. The FAA Web site shows the registered owner as Ocean Aerial Ads of Ocean City.
This is a popular route for banner planes. Note the one flying in the upper right corner.
REINO PARKING METERS STILL MALFUNCTIONING
The Reino multi-space meters kept meter repair techs busy again this weekend. This is R-308 which is on Rehoboth Avenue east of State Road. When it failed Saturday, nine parking spaces went with it. Other Reinos also malfunctioned this weekend. One of the four on Grenoble Place received a new CPU and keypad Friday.
TICKET WRITER TOLD TO TICKET ON-DUTY LIFEGUARD
The Rehoboth Beach Patrol lifeguard shown below had parked in an expired metered space on Virginia Avenue. Lifeguards have reserved parking spaces on many city streets and are not required to feed the meters. However, when the ticket writer found this vehicle around noon Thursday, he radioed his supervisor for advice. The supervisor instructed him to ticket the lifeguard vehicle because it was not in a designated lifeguard parking space. The designated lifeguard parking is on the other side of the street. A lifeguard whistle hung from the rear-view mirror and a RBP bumper sticker was affixed to the vehicle's rear bumper.
