Dee, who was on hand to promote his new book Little Boy Blue, m retired from the New York City PoUce Department in 1982 as a lieutenant, and went on to earn a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writin from Arizona State University. Dee, who has written three books to date, fives in Lewes with his wife Nancy. He is currently hard at work on his new novel, which carries the working title "Star Fall  Exhibit Continued from page M fine; but it doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice the arts. Anull said that the arts are fun- damental to learning. "Art is the basis for sensitivity; for learning to use your intelli- gence," he said. "Otherwise, you learn to go by the book without feeling." The artist's paintings in the SCAC exhibition include several oils on canvas and some mixed media on Japanese paper. Dean said that the oils are mostly Amill's trademark objects bathed in fight, but the water color/oil and water color/wax mixes are very non-traditional and abstract. "All in all, it is a very profes- sional show, and Carles did an ex- cellent job of hanging it," she said. "His oils convey such an essence of warmth, with light of varying intensity beaming onto, sometimes washing, the objects. "Others take on an antique qual- ity, bathed in gentle darkness. His work has a European quality, a look of work of the past, no matter how new it is." Amill said that the aged look of his work is entirely intentional. "Paintings get old very fast," he said. "I don't work in 'young' paintings. I don't see why we have to face passage of time, deteriora- tion, even death with fear. It is something so natural." An exhibit set for late summer will feature a collection of Amill's small pieces, each approximately Vendors sought for craft fair April 12 Friday Vendors are sought for a local craft fair to take place Saturday, April 12 at Lord Baltimore Ele- mentary School in Ocean View.

CAPE GAZETrE, Friday, February 21- February 27, 1997 - 57 DelTech moves By Michael Short The Olde-Fashioned July 4th Celebration at Delaware Techni- cal and Community College has become a Sussex County staple. For the last 15 years, the holi- day celebration has attracted droves of people to the Owens campus in Georgetown. But the one-day festival will get a facelift this summer, when it ex- pands to three days and the town of Georgetown becomes a co- sponsor. 'his is really an oppor- tunity to make it a county fair," said Georgetown town manager Sandy Coyman. The festival will move to the Sussex County Airport because of space concerns, a move approved on Feb. 18 by the Sussex County Council. Dates will be July 3 to 5 and the new location is expected to provide far more elbow room for a festival that has attracted more than 20,000 people. "We're just trying to make it a county wide celebration," said Coyman. The College and Georgetown will work together on the affair, which will also include assistance from the Historic Georgetown Association. Area chambers of commerce may also become involved and the Georgetown Chamber of Com- merce has already signed on to as- sist. Festival visitors will find many of the same attractions, be- ginning with the fireworks, sched- uled for July 5 this year. There will be vendors and food and en- tertainment, including the Navy Band. But there could also be other ac- tivities, ranging from softball to vintage airplanes, carnival type amusements and parachutists. "I think it is going to be bigger and better than ever," said Owens Campus President Dr. Timothy Kavel. Kavel said the advantages to a new location are more room, more parking and perhaps less traffic congestion. The change also dove- tails nicely with campus plans for expansion since the new student o *IPOURR00* p ORE$,r/IUR/IN q, -- INTRODUCING REHOBOTH'S ONLY JA77 JAM FEATURING: THE JEFF IRWIN ALLSTARS :  EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT 8-12 J MUSICIANS WELCOME TO JOIN THE FUN.
