16 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, February 25 - March 2, 2000 Turansky files for re-election to Cape board By Jim Cresson Lewes native June S. Turansky has filed for re-election to her seat on the Cape Henlopen School District Board of Education. A Cape Henlopen High School graduate with degrees from Delaware Technical & Communi- ty College, Marymount University and the University of Delaware, Turansky is currently working on a doctorate program in education- al leadership and administration at the University of Delaware. She is director of the nursing school at DelTech's Owens Campus, where she oversees 20 faculty and 300 students. She is also president of the Delaware Nursing Associa- tion. Turansky, current school board president, was first elected to the Area-B seat in May 1995 when she won a three-way race against incumbent board member Walter Hopkins and challenger George Chambers. She has served on the board's building and grounds committee and was chair of the district's 14- member Long Range Facilities Task Force which devel- oped a three- phase, 20-year plan to im- prove Cape's school build- ings. She has also been the school board's TURANSKY representative to the Delaware School Board As- sociation. "I think our board has a real fo- cus on education," she said short- ly after filing with the Department of Elections, Feb. 14. "We've all stayed focused on the educational needs of our students and our communities. I'm glad to be part of such a board and would like to continue on it for another five years." She said her work on the Facili- ties Task Force opened her eyes to the real need for new middle schools in the district and for fu- ture projects such as the planned high school renovation. "I'm pret- ty positive about the referendum for the middle schools." Turansky and her husband, John, have a son in the eighth grade at Lewes Middle School. The school board election is set for Saturday, May 13. Deadline for filing is 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 14. DSHA to sell 20 acres of prime land The Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) has an- nounced plans to sell this nearly 20-acre parcel of land near Five Points. The land was once planned for a low-income housing project, but Sussex County Council did not grant a rezoning for the project. The land is located off Beaver Dam Road near both Five Points and Sussex 275. DSHA Spokesman Christina Hardin said the DSHA made the decision to sell the land because there is no longer any money available for the agency to de- velop low-income housing. While DSHA can fUnd mainte- nance work or can help finance other affordable housing, such as Savannah West and the not-yet constructed Savan- nah East, the agency no longer has funds to construct its own housing, she said. Bids for the land will be accepted until 2 p.m., March 16. Bids should be sent to Delaware State Housing Authority at 18 The Green, Dover, DE 19901.

Cerullo requested and re- ceived approval to demolish the home and create two oversized lots with 75 feet of frontage. At that time, Cerullo told them he hoped to sell one of the lots and build a squash court for his chil- dren on the other one. Neighbors voiced concern about increased congestion, traffic, density and noise. Subsequently, Cerullo sold the unimproved lot for $425,000 and began building the squash court on the other. In the meantime, he was able to acquire a parcel at 48 Surf Ave. adjacent to his house and in March, he demolished the home on that parcel and in September received a permit to build the three story structure which in- eludes a squash court. The struc- ture he is building is as is allowed under the present zoning code. Having availed himself of the opportunity to build on Surf Av- enue, he converted the squash court on Henlopen Avenue to a single family home which is now on the market for $825,000. "He has a lot of audacity tO de- ny our partitioning, given the facts," Zimmerman said. Fritz Hessemer, a former Board of Adjustment member, passed around a numbe of photographs of new residential construction be believes to be out of character with their particular neighbor- hoods and Cerullo's Surf Avenue project was one of them. The Board of Commissioners will hear the appeal on Feb. 28 be- ginning at 7 p.m. Following this special meeting, the board will hold its regular workshop session. The only agenda item includes the presentation of a water rate study by Jim Fagan. A desirable step-down kitchen with tons of natur- al light and all over cathedral ceilings make this home seem much bigger than it is. Master bath features a double vanity with two medicine cabinets and a romantic circular tub. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TO i:ii :iii  , BELIEVE IT!
