To celebrate the Cape Gazette’s 30th anniversary this year, we are publishing some of our favorite stories from the past. Have these stories aged well? You be the judge.

Welcome to the Cape Gazette

The Cape Gazette, a local weekly newspaper serving the people and communities located in the Cape Henlopen School District, begins publishing today. Dennis Forney and Trish Hogenmiller Vernon, Cape Henlopen District residents, are the lone officers of Cape Gazette Ltd., a Delaware corporation formed to publish the newspaper.

The Cape Gazette will be published every Friday and distributed to newsstands and resident subscribers throughout Sussex County. Local subscribers will receive their newspapers on Friday, while out-of-county subscribers will receive their newspapers a few days later.

Subscriptions are available at $25 per year for in-county subscribers and $40 per year for out-of-county subscribers. Until the end of June, charter subscribers receive a $5 discount off those prices. Newstand price of the Cape Gazette is 25 cents.

The Cape Gazette is designed to celebrate the lives and times of the people who live and own property in what many people consider one of the most beautiful and unique areas along the eastern seaboard. In the pages of the Cape Gazette, readers will find news of decisions being considered and made about them and their area, editorials and letters, sports, fishing and hunting, arts and entertainment, business and real estate and community and school news. The dynamic and multi-faceted natural environment plays a critical role in the vitality of the Cape area and will be a steady focus of the Cape Gazette. As a community service, the Cape Gazette offers free classified ads for non-commercial accounts. Reader comments and suggestions
are always welcome.
