Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY, JANUARY 3- MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014 9 Letters )) Continued from page 8 significant sum of money to take care of those obligations going forward. Without that invest- ment, the Pinnacle plant and its pollutants will just continue to sit on the site unchecked. The jobs and the wide-ranging economic impact of the Allen Harim facility are exactly the kind of boost Millsboro and Sussex County need right now. Let's make sure we don't miss the chance to support something that will help us forge our own economic destiny going forward. John Atkins State Representative, 41st District Laurel would love to have chicken plant As one who was born and raised in Laurel and now resides in Millsboro, it is my opinion everyone ought to recognize the heroic effort made by state Rep. Tim Dukes, who represents Laurel. Laurel needs the jobs to be generated by this plant dearly. With existing chicken plants in Millsboro, Harbeson, George- town and Selbyville - Millsboro does not. Building a chicken plant in close proximity to already polluted bodies of water on a brownfields site presents unique challenges that will surely cost the taxpayer lots of money. Build- ing a plant in the Laurel area - say along Route 13 - will not present these challenges and should not cost the taxpayer a dime. Let's give Tim and Laurel a chance to speak out. Bravo Tim! We still get 700 jobs and $100 million Harim investment with no fuss and no muss and an economic pickup for the Laurel area. Doug Parham Millsboro RBHS grateful to City of Rehoboth Beach The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum is grateful for the latest show of support from the City of Rehoboth Beach in forgiving an outstanding loan from the city. The museum has enjoyed a long and prosperous relationship with the city. Housed in the his- toric Ice House, the museum has hosted more than 10,000 visitors since its opening in November 2007. Exhibits have featured trea- sures ranging from findings of a 17th century archaeological dig to vintage surfboards. The city owns the Ice House building and the society has raised funds to preserve and expand the building and fill it with exhibits that reflect the history of our beautiful city by the sea. When the society leadership had raised nearly, but not all, of the money it needed to open the museum, the city generously stepped in and provided a loan to the society so that the first floor of the museum could be opened to the public. Through fundraising efforts and the generosity of our mem- bers and donors, the society has paid back half of the debt owed to the city. Recently, the city mayor and commissioners voted to forgive the remaining portion of the soci- ety's debt to the city - an amount that makes the city the society's largest donor to date. The Rehoboth Beach His- torical Society wishes to thank the city for its generosity. This gift demonstrates the powerful and positive good that can be done when a municipality and a nonprofit join forces to preserve historic buildings and treasures they can hold. We are grateful for the city's faith in our ability to save and showcase historic items that reflect the many happy memories the public has shared with us. And we pledge to make the city proud by moving forward to finish the museum building, enabling us to mount many more exhibits, and share even more precious artifacts in our care with visitors in the coming years.
