Although the current structure has only housed the library since 1980, the Milton Library Association was formed in January of 1875. Located in Weleh's Drugstore, the library consisted of one book- ease of 200 books donated by the community. In 1913, the Milton Library Association merged with the Milton Century Club and moved around the town to differ- ent sites until renovations were completed at its current Union St. location in July of 1980. Current- ly, the library accommodates 20,000 books, magazines, video and audio cassettes, and its circu- lation continues to grow. Director and head librarian of the Milton Public Library, Mary Catherine Hopkins, was presented with two awards and a book belonging to Ann Welch from the original 1875 collection. The book, entitled "American Home Garden" by Alexander Watson, was once part of the orig- inal 1875 collection of the library, and although Welch was not pre- sent at the celebration, the book was given to Hopkins by president of the Friends of the Milton Public Library Charlie Fleetwood. Carol Fitzgerald, from the Sus- sex County Division of Libraries, presented Hopkins with a procla- marion from Sussex County Coun- cil. Rep. Cmorge Carey also pre- sented Hopkins with a tribute from the Delaware House of Represen- tatives. "Rudder" back at home after harrowing night spent in bay By Everett Wodiska A lost crew member from a launch was found marooned on a jetty after spending a night on the rocks. "Rudder" Rogan, who fell overboard in Delaware Bay at about 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22, was rescued late M0nday morning: AccJrding to Ched Rogan, a partner in Coastal Launch Service, Rudder, his I l-month-old golden retriever, was very happy to see his master again. Rogan admitted that Rudder has a habit of getting into trouble. "She plays in the mud around Red Mill Pond and then likes to say 'hi' to the neighbors. Birds and squirrels are always good for a quick chase," he noted. Rogan believes the puppy chased after a sea gull this time and "must have jumped from the boat trying to catch a gull." Rogan was testing his launch along the Mispillion Inlet after replacing an engine Sunday. Run- ning a mile out and then returning, Rogan had last seen Rudder dur- ing the tern around. "I never heard her leave the launch," Rogan said, "The engines are pret- ty loud." About a quarter of a mile later Rogan noticed that Rudder was missing and the search for Rudder began. Trying to allow for the outgoing tide, Rogan scanned the waves looking for any sign of the dog. As darkness fell, so did his hope of finding Rudder. The worst part for Rogan was telling his wife, Ann, and their three sons, Andrew, age seven, Rory, age five, and Jeffrey, three. The only reason Rudder had spent Evlm'ett Wodiska photo "Rudder" Rogan is happy to be back home near Lewes, seen here playing with Andrew Rogan, after the dog spent a night out on a jetty. the day with Rogan was to keep her out of trouble in the neighbor- hood. The Rogans called area animal shelters in case Rudder had made it back to shore. Ched Rogan took his launch out Monday "morning and searched along the stone jetty. When Rogan spotted Rudder, she was sitting on top of some rocks - cold, wet, and glad to be going home. According to an amazed Rogan, "Rudder must have swum to the rocks against Continued on page 15 Suction scares the pants fight off the tartar There are some appointments I like to keep well ahead oL out of necessity. If I ever have to go to a hospital in a serious condition, it won't be a living will written across my chest, but instead a date and time for my next dental clean- ing appointment. It will say some- thing like, "Thursday the llth at 10 a.m." For everyone knows if you don't keep a dental cleaning appointment, the next available opening will be in 20 years and then they will have to use all those horrible instruments that most people keep hanging on the walls of their garage. Scientists have made great strides in the area of dental hygiene. I noticed this when I went in to the dentist for my regu- lar check-up recently. Which I wouldn't miss, cancel or not show AROUNDTOWN up for, even if it meant missing one day of not seeing the "Dream Team" walking into court with their arms around each other and daggers sticking out of their backs. And these scientists have come up with the answer to healtMer and whiter teeth. Their solution is, "suction." That's right! This dis- cover), is so important that most dentists do not even have elevator music in the waiting rooms any- more. Instead they pipe in this sucking, gurgling, gasping noise so the patients will feel more com- fortable in this new scientific break-through environment. Dental hygienists actually have at their disposal a state of the art suction machine that is capable of sucking your tongue clear out of your head along with your brain and any loose change that happens to be in your pocket. This equip- ment was invented to take the place of that small little white Dix- ie cup that you used to rinse out your mouth. Remember how cute and tiny it was and you could hold it like it was your very Own? Then you could place it back on its little stand, knowing it was there for you to use anytime. Well all of that is ancient history now. This time, when you sit in the chair, you will be attached to the suction machine that looks more like those snakes the plumbers use to unclog a bath- room drain pipe. It has enough force to scare the pants right off the tartar in your mouth. That plaque will come march- ing out with its hands up, scream- ing for mercy. And so will every- thing else in your head. You won't even be able to spit until well into the next year. But as everyone knows this will make your teeth whiter and brighter just from fear. And to go along with these suc- tion machines, scientists have invented a new chair similar to the tilt-a-wheel at your local carnival. It's very simple. The chair is tilted back so that your head is below sea level and your feet are just north of the Five Point intersec- tion. This not only allows the technician to stick the suction hose further down your throat, but also causes the teeth to become disori- ented. They can no longer while away the time looking out the win- dow of the dentist's office and pretend they are bored. And as anyone can tell you, teeth that arc forced to pay attention through fear naturally are whiter and brighter. I guess we've come a long way from that school play where you once played the part of the tooth.
