Since retiring, he's done a tour of duty in the Peace Corps 'along with his wife Mary, landing in Mongolia. Redfin Continued from page 1 Haley, owner of new Lewes restaurant Fish On!, said he thought the decision was fair. "This has never been about money," he said. "It's about what is fair and what is right." Matt and Greg LLC purchased the land under Redfin on May 23, 2003, for $720,000. The land was appraised on June 14, 2004, at $1.8 million. Given the proper- ty's waterfront location and com- mercial zoning, at least 12 town- houses could be built on the prop- erty. Townhouses in North Bethany are listed at more than $500,000 a piece, which could make the Redfin property attrac- tive to developers. Haley sued Talcott, according to court filings, after a "falling out." In court filings for additional lawsuits not yet decided. Haley claims Talcott structured the LLC that owns Redfin, Delaware Seafood LLC, in a way that com- mitted fraud and deprived Haley of his 50 percent ownership of the restaurant and that Talcott wrong- fully terminated him.

One of the nice things about weather is if you wait a while it will Change." Legates said the warm weather is not an indicator that ihe global climate is changing. "You can never read a single event into global change," he said. The record high temperature for "That gives you a leg up on he- ing selected for this kind of thing, that you've been in less than lux- urious foreign conditions," he said. Bernheisel said he enjoys the travel involved with his vol- unteer work and can relate to a theme common in some country- western music. "When the train whistle blows, my feet itch." cott sent Haley a letter that Haley claims falsely stated that Haley tendered his resignation. "Upon information and belief, Talcott and Delaware Seafood sought to terminate Haley as op- erations direc- tor due to Ha ley's insis- tence that he receive the eq- uity share in Delaware Seafood that he was former- ItALEY ly promised," court docu- ments state. Haley said he put in 70 hours or more a week at Redfin, while Tal- cott put up only loan money, was never present and played no part in the selection of the land, con- cept or cuisine "Do you have a baby?" Haley asked. "Imagine your neighbor comes into your house, steals your baby and then makes you sue to get it back. It hurts to have someone come and take yofir ba- by from you."

In an average year, the temperature would be hovering at 44 degrees on Jan. 3. The warm weather will be here for a while, according to Joe Miketta, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service. "For the 'rest of the week, and into the middle part of next week, I don't see any cold outbreaks," Miketta said. The reason for the high temper- atures is that the jet stream is bringing warm air from the Pacif- ic, rather than what the jet stream usually does in January, which is to bring colder air from Canada. "Right now it's going more from west to east, rather than north to south," Miketta said.

State archaeologist to dig beach for artifacts Archaeologist will use heavy equipment Jan. 4 to dig trenches on Lewes Beach in an attempt to find out how deep historic arti- facts could be buried beneath the sand. State archaeologist Craig Lukezic said digging the trenches could give a better idea of the source of the artifacts and will help in the development of a map detailing the distribution of the materials. The artifacts are thought to be from a U.S Army Corps of Engineers beach replen- ishment project during which a dredge pumped more than 160,000 cubic yards of sand onto Lewes Beach. Archaeologist think the dredge struck a deposit of ma- terials while workingup to 3,000 feet offshore. Lukezic said the sand that was pumped ashore contained so much broken material that the Army Corps has now determined that the beach will have to be cleaned to made safe. Lukezic said the Army Corps has not yet determined when the cleanup would start or how it will be done. TASTINGS 26 25 Baltimore Avenue.
