Slaughter Beach Scenic Overlook and Boardwalk Project Ribbon-Cutting

APRIL 12, 2019 — State Rep. Bryan Shupe joined Gov. John Carney, conservation partners, young students from the Milford School District, and dozens of others for a ribbon-cutting ceremony today that officially opened the Slaughter Beach Scenic Overlook and Boardwalk project.The new addition to the existing Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve promises to be an additional eco-tourism attraction along Delaware's Bayshore Byway.The walk's Y-shaped design, totaling approximately 345 feet, provides access to a marsh pool at one end and an elevated view of a nearby osprey nest platform at the other end.Owned and managed by the Delaware Nature Society, the 109-acre Marvel Saltmarsh Preserve was donated in 1988 by the Marvel Family of Milford.The overlook and boardwalk project was made possible by a partnership between several state and federal agencies, the Town of Slaughter Beach, the Delaware Nature Society, private businesses, and former State Sen. Gary Simpson and former State Rep. Harvey Kenton.Rep. Shupe lauded the Marvel Family for their generous gift and touted the enhanced preserve as providing a valuable education experience for the area's school children.

House Bill 58 passed the Delaware House unanimously Thursday, a big win for nursing students and some healthcare providers in The First State. If passed into law, it would change allowing nursing students to pursue careers at non-profit hospitals.

Nursing Education Bill Passes DE House unanimously.

Thank you Brandon Bossert of 47 ABC for sharing our push to increase local opportunities for healthcare careers and workfore development here in Delaware. House Bill 58 passed the Delaware House unanimously Thursday, a big win for nursing students and some healthcare providers in The First State. If passed into law, it would change allowing nursing students to pursue careers at non-profit hospitals.Hospitals that fit the description include Christiana, Nanticoke, and Bayhealth in Milford.“We have a lot of healthcare that’s going on in the City of Milford, in my region, the 36th district. Bayhealth just expanded a new campus, so this will help them recruit nursing, and also to the other hospitals that are starting to do expansions of their workforce, but also their facilities,” said Rep. Bryan Shupe, a republican representing District 36.Not only does this bill cover the five non-profit hospitals in Delaware, it also covers the Veterans Home in Milford, to help them attract more workers to meet their demands.This act would also increase the number of Delaware nursing students eligible for the Nursing Incentive Program. A program that awards a loan amount of $5,000 per academic year, is renewable for up to three additional years for certain students, and a loan forgiveness provision as of now is only offered at a state-owned hospital or clinic.In theory, this can lead to more appeal for nursing students to come to Delaware.The bill now moves to the Senate where State Senator Ernie Lopez is a prime sponsor and will now push for it in the upper house.We’re told there has already been a number of senators who have shown support. Shupe says Delaware Governor John Carney has also been receptive to the bill.Bayhealth Medical Center Christiana Care Health System Nanticoke Health Services Bebee medical Hospital St. Francise Hospital Delaware Veterans Home Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) University of Delaware Delaware Technical Community College
