    CALLING ALL LEAGUE MEMBERS

    We need YOU to help us decide under what conditions the League of Women Voters would support an amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    Our consensus meeting will follow the LWVUS Study Guide, which has lots of information to assist in helping you to become familiar with the available information on the topic. Please take a few moments to look it over. As part of the process, committee members will present additional background information.

    The consensus reached by members through group discussion is not a simple majority, but refers to the overall "sense of the group." Member agreement emerges from the give and take that comes from the interaction among group members and the exchange of views.

    Fun Lunch. The November Fun Lunch follows in the original League of Women Voters Sussex County (LWVSC) Fun Lunch format that wanted to give members the opportunity to experience locally-owned restaurants around Sussex County and to have a purely social time to get to know each other better. This is particularly true after such a busy October and before people begin their year-end holiday travels. You all have had a variety of experiences the last couple of months and interesting plans going forward.

    For those of you having Thanksgiving house guests, this is a wonderful opportunity to treat yourself before displaying your culinary skills for others. The Blue Water Grill restaurant burned and recently reopened for business. You can see their menus on the web site. The owners are delighted that LWVSC has chosen to come there. Many of us remember when it first open in the early 2000s.

    Continuing with the original Fun Lunch format, LWVSC goes to restaurants that are willing to give diners separate checks, are handicapped accessible and have adequate parking. The intention is that no one should be excluded by her/his appetite or pocketbook. LWVSC prides itself in being as inclusive as possible in every way. Since this is Sussex County, sometimes the parking can be more challenging, and if there is not a ramp, the restaurant employees are there to assist diners into the restaurant.

    Please bring your friends and early-arrival holiday house guests. Show them there is life away from the Sussex County coast. This is also an opportunity for the LWVSC members living in the central and western parts of Sussex County to participate without doing as much driving.

    Carpoolers: Meet at the Beebe Medical Campus parking area closest to Route 24 at 11:30. Let us know if you want to carpool so we'll wait for you.

    Dinner with Governor Jack Markell and the Inland Bays Foundation.

    Inland Bays Foundation and the League of Women Voters Sussex County invite you to the Love Our Inland Bays Dinner honoring Governor Jack Markell in recognition of Clean Water for Delaware's Future.

    Join us for dinner where you will have the opportunity to hear Governor Markell share what his vision for Delaware is, what he is doing to bring it about, and what you can do to help.

    "Clean water is essential for a healthy and prosperous Delaware," said Gov. Markell. "We have made great strides reducing air pollution and cleaning up brownfield sites, yet nearly every waterway in Delaware, other than our beaches, remains unsafe for swimming and fishing and nearly every community is struggling with more frequent flooding and storms."

    The League of Women Voters Sussex County and the Inland Bays Foundation applaud Governor Markell's foresight and planning for a better environment and economy for Sussex County.

    Guarantee your seat for this significant event by reserving early. You can print your reservation form, fill it out and mail it along with your check to the address on the form. Or, if you prefer, you can register online at the Inland Bays Foundation website.

    We look forward to seeing you there!!

    What is a Fun Lunch?

    Many years ago the LWVSC Board, in response to concerns from the members, decided to add a monthly "fun lunch" to the LWVSC activities. It seemed that the members had opportunities to work on projects together, but they didn't have an opportunity to socialize. That's all. Just visit with each other.

    Fun Lunches also gave us the opportunity to introduce members to local restaurants around Sussex County and to give the LWV Sussex County a public face locally.

    WEEK 8: U.S. Trade Policy

    America's foreign policy tools are not limited to sanctions, treaties or military campaigns + they also include the sales pitch. The logic behind this pitch, or "economic statecraft," is simple: promote the benefits of democracy and the free market. In so doing, the U.S. will gain valuable and stable partners, both in business and in diplomacy. Now, as China and other emerging nations battle the U.S. for global influence, Secretary Kerry will take the reigns as a free market matchmaker.

    WEEK 7: China's Foreign Policy

    China has gone to great lengths to emphasize the "peaceful" nature of its meteoric rise. Yet few dispute that China is the dominant regional power in Asia + and in recent years Beijing began to flex its muscles regionally in order to advance its strategic interests. What does the rapid rise of this new superpower mean for other countries in the region, and are there potential points of conflict with the U.S. as it "pivots" to Asia?

    WEEK 6: Food and Climate

    Even as a sixth of the world's population suffers from chronic hunger, a changing climate threatens to wreak havoc on already insecure and vulnerable populations. As food and water become scarce and once fertile land becomes barren, the U.S. finds itself faced with new challenges in securing the globe. The U.S. is getting ready, but can it lead the way to climate reform?

    WEEK 5: Energy Independence

    Energy independence, by taking the bargaining chip of oil dependence off the table, would be good for American foreign policy. But the very technological advances that make independence possible have created a dilemma for lawmakers. In a government with fixed resources, should the U.S. encourage more traditional fuel production or invest in the young technology of renewable resources?

    WEEK 3: Turkey's Challenges

    Turkey: a nation at a crossroads, a bridge over an ever-growing chasm between the East and West. Turkey's first Prime Minister Kemal Ataturk envisioned a modern, democratic nation-state built on the ashes of the Ottoman Empire with strong ties to Europe, not the Middle East. But as the clashes between secular and religious groups and the recent protests in Taksim Square show, the soul of Turkey is still very much up for grabs.

    WEEK 2: Israel and the U.S.

    Modern Israel's struggles with the Palestinians have turned what was meant as a safe haven for Jews into the center of a decades-long conflict. The U.S. has stepped in as Israel's ally due to the two countries' shared values, providing years of unparalleled military and diplomatic support. But now those ties are being tested. The Arab Spring, Iran's nuclear ambitions, failed peace talks, and Israel's own decision to give Washington the cold shoulder have put new strains on the 65-year-old "special relationship."

    WEEK 1: Defense Technology

    From robotic planes to cyber weapons to 3D printing and human enhancement, new "game-changing" technologies are moving from science fiction to battlefield reality - all during an age of fiscal austerity. Bit in wrestling with the new, we can actually learn a great deal from the past. Our forebears went through similar challenges with such once fanciful but now normal concepts as airplanes, submarines, and tanks. What are the "killer applications" of the 21st century battlefield, and in turn, what are the issues that the U.S. must navigate in adapting to them?

    Public Forum on Agriculture in Sussex County and Delaware.

    The LWV Sussex County Continues its Participation in the League of Women Voters United States (LWVUS) Agriculture Policy Study.

    After three months of research and a earlier public forum introducing the Study, the local Agriculture Study Group of the League of Women Voters of Sussex County (LWVSC) will present a panel discussion.

    Among the panelists will be Sussex County farmers, including Charles Smith of TS Smith and Sons of Bridgeville and Hattie Allen, owner of Hattie's Garden of Lewes. These local farmers will address how large and small niche farming can add to the agriculture economy and bring interesting and healthy foods to the local tables.

    After the panelists have made their presentations, attendees will be asked for their questions and comments. The meeting is free and open to the public. All interested Sussex Countians are encouraged to attend.

    This is an opportunity to learn how the League of Women Voters determines its non-partisan positions on issues of importance to the people in America. The study is being conducted by local branches of the League of Women Voters throughout the United States between November 2013 and April 2014.

    Women's Equality Day. This day is proclaimed each year by the President of the U.S. to commemorate the granting of the right to vote to women on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified. The amendment was first introduced in 1878. Every president has published a proclamation for Women's Equality Day since 1971 when legislation introduced in Congress by Bella Abzug was enacted designating August 26 of each year as Women's Equality Day.

    Celebration of Women's Equality Day. In honor of the 93rd anniversary of the certification of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, which granted women the right to vote - and to the women and their male supporters who tirelessly campaigned for 72 years to win this basic human right, the League of Women Voters of Sussex County will present the critically acclaimed film 'Iron Jawed Angels'.

    The film is open to the public and is free of charge.

    This riveting and poignant film is based on the true story of two committed young women who led a group of rebel activists in the pursuit of equality for all American women.

    Housing for All: Fair & Affordable. In recognition of Fair Housing Month, LWVSC announces its April public forum speaker Nick Mirro, representing the Delaware Human Relations Commission Sussex County office. Mirro will outline requirements of fair housing legislation, the role of his office, and how these laws are enforced.

    In addition, he will explore such topics as:

    • What's the difference between low income and affordable housing?
    • Where do the nurses and teachers live?
    • Is this a women's issue?
    • Are the nurses here wives and daughters who could not live independently on their salaries because of the cost of housing?
    • What type of housing is affordable -- townhouses, apartments, smaller houses?
    • What about rental property? Is there any?

    The forum is free and the public is welcome.

    all day
    Georgetown - on The Circle and all around town Return Day. Every two years, Georgetown hosts this unusual event, a half-day-long parade and festival two days after Election Day. Stemming from the colonial days in which the public would congregate in Georgetown two days after the election to hear the results (because it would take that long to deliver the results to the courthouse by horseback), the winners of that year's political races parade around The Circle in carriages with the losers and the chairs of the county's political parties ceremonially "bury the hatchet" in a tub of sand. The afternoon is marked by a traditional ox feast, much revelry, and, of course, the beginning of the next round of campaigns. Many in Delaware feel that the state's traditionally chummy and staid political climate is due in large part to the Return Day tradition. In 2010, the LWV SC won an award for our entry in the parade.

    Screening of Iron Jawed Angels. From the Press Release written by Norma Jean Fowler of the Laurel Public Library: The right to vote for today's woman was a hard fought battle that occurred across this nation just over one hundred years ago. To celebrate this victory and to ensure that modern women exercise this right, the Laurel Public Library in partnership with the Sussex County League of Women Voters will present a free showing of the award winning film Iron Jawed Angels at the library on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 from 4 to 6 pm in the Carpenter Community Room.

    Starring award winning actors Hilary Swank, Angelica Huston, Patrick Dempsey and Julia Ormond, the film is a must see for everyone, especially young women of today, as it explores the first wave of what has become known as "Women's Suffrage." Nominated for five Emmys and awarded a golden globe in 2005, Iron Jawed Women is appropriate for ages 14 and up.

    Taking a fresh and contemporary look at a pivotal event in American history, Iron Jawed Angels tells the true story of how the defiant and brilliant young activists, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns took the women's suffrage movement by storm, putting their lives at risk to help American women win the right to vote. Of special note for local history fans is the fact that Delaware native, Mabel Vernon played a significant role in this effort. Vernon joined close friend Alice Paul to form the Congressional Union for Women Suffrage. Her involvement led to imprisonment and enduring hunger strikes. Played by Brooke Smith in the film, Mabel Vernon died in 1975.

    Forum on Public Education in Sussex County. On Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 1:30 pm the League of Women Voters of Sussex County will present a forum on Public Education in Sussex County in the Medical Arts Building at the Beebe Medical Campus on Route 24 in Lewes, DE. The event is open to the public.

    Education is often discussed as necessary for the United States to participate in the global economy. This Public Forum will focus on the role of education for people who live and work in Sussex County.

    Paul Harrell, a Director in Delaware's Department of Education, will represent DOE's newly appointed Secretary, Mark Murphy, at this Forum. Harrell will address the ways that the Delaware DOE can and cannot impact education in here. He will also discuss the actions being taken at DOE that are related to Public Education in Sussex County and the results that are anticipated. A panel of educators will follow Harrell's presentation with questions related to public education in the county.

    Fun Lunch. Abbott's Grill is a bit of a drive, but it is worth it. The food is excellent, and by having separate checks each of us can have something special but stay true to our own pocketbook. The menu does not show the desserts. You will want to find out what they are before you order so you can plan for that, too.

    Fun Lunches are a great way to get to know the other members of the League in Sussex County. Since Abbott's Grill is in Milford bumping Kent County, LWVSC invited LWVKC to come have lunch with us. We don't get to see each other nearly enough. Abbott's Grill is a nice half-way point for members of the two Leagues to gather.

    Who Owns Your Roads: Who Pays?. Did you know there are no county roads in Delaware? The DE Department of Transportation (DELDOT) is responsible for all public roads outside most municipalities - and subdivisions. If you live in a subdivision, your Homeowners are responsible for maintenance and snow removal. A panel will discuss how the system works, or not, and what requirements there are for subdivisions to set aside funds for future repair. This forum is the second of four addressing issues of privatization of public services and is the League's local exploration of these issues leading up to a consensus meeting as part of the LWVUS privatization study. For background on the national study, go to the LWVUS Study section here.

    Who Owns Your Water and Water Services: Should You Be Concerned?. A panel moderated by Madeleine Russell will discuss how water and sewage treatment are operated in Sussex County, some by the county, some by private companies like Tidewater Utilities, some by individual subdivisions. Panelists who have confirmed, to date, include Jerry Esposito, President of Tidewater, and Joann Conaway, Acting Chair of the Delaware Public Service Commission. Others are pending. This forum is the first of four exploring whether privatization creates more efficiency and lower prices as promised and is publicly controlled water supply really less efficient and more expensive? These forums represent the LWVSC's local exploration of these issues leading up to a consensus meeting as part of an LWVUS privatization study. For background on the national study, go to the LWVUS Study section here.
