Gary Smith, of the development office, said White and all First Omni and First Maryland officials have been very cooperative in keeping the office apprised of the situation. He said development of- fice officials share White's opti- mism that there will not be a sig- nificant loss of jobs, and the office will continue to work with the banking corporation in whatever role is best. Regardless of the employee sit- uation, current First Omni con- sumers are not expected to see much difference in service with the transition since Bank of Amer- ica has agreed to provide a full range of consumer credit card products under the First Maryland brand name to branch customers. Existing accounts will be serviced on an ongoing basis. According to Nank, BankAmer- ica Corp. is the fourth-largest bank in the country, with $258 bil- lion in assets. The purchase, which is expected to be completed early in the second quarter of 1998, includes approximately $623 million in credit card loans issued by First Maryland's credit card subsidiary, First Omni, and Dauphin Deposit Bank. The terms of the sales agree- ment have not been disclosed. That's the story as issued in black and white by First Maryland Bankcorp. Still unanswered are questions regarding the specific number of employees that will continue to work in the corpora- tion and those who will not be re- tained. "Any transition that results in a job loss has an impact all around," said Bunting. "We don't need any kind of job loss, but I think that this kind of job is key. It attracts educated people and results in de- cent salaries that contribute to the overall economy." White said that remaining a pos- itive force in southern Delaware is a priority for First Maryland Bank Corp. He said all employees have been kept abreast of the situation as the sale and merger move to- ward completion and they are aware that there will be three areas of employment in Millsboro. He said First Maryland will have con- sumer installment loans and direct banking in addition to expanded numbers of employees in back of- fice operations. "All things considered, things are going very smoothly," White said. "Morale is good and we are very pleased with the quality and caliber of our staff."

Patricia explains, "We really did our home- work. For a year and a half we came to Lewes and Rehoboth Beach on weekends searching for our !dream' home in an ideal location. "We looked at models in all of the nice com- munities. We visited builders, shops and stores, even the post office, always asking their opinions on the most reliable builders and the most desirable locations. "While exploring all the nooks and crannies, we found Plantations. In Plantations, we found the exact house, with separate guest quarters, we wanted. Now, we say that we found the right area, the right community, the right builder -- Country Life Homes -- and the right home. "We loved Plantations and our new home so much, we made the decision to retire a year earlier than we had planned -- just to get this completely new-type of design in a house. "Here, everyone is so nice and so friendly, When you visit Plantations, you'll be able to see for yourself just what we're talking about." I I Prices start at $113,500.
