20 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 13 - March 19, 1998 Small Business Administration writes first (IlLeCks for coastal cleanup The Small Business Admin- istration (SBA) has issued its first checks for homeowners who suffered damage during the recent nor'easters. Shown (l-r) are Joseph Kopp, SBA Branch Manager, pre- senting a check to Michael and Pattiann Kauffman of Oyster Road in Millsboro. CARC Continued from page 19 entering the property from Savan- nah Road and exiting on Bay Av- enue might be considered; howev- er, neighbors weren't thrilled at that prospect either. The proposal before CARC involved traffic en- tering and exiting the property from Bay Avenue. Attorney Jim Fuqua, represent- ing Makowski and Schab, noted that the commission was set up to review architecture. "We've By Michael Short When the floods came, Pattiann and Michael Kauffman fled with a coffee pot, a change of clothing, some dog food and their 10-year- old dog. Everything else at their Long Neck home was left to the ele- ments as they fled through thigh- high water in the wee hours of the morning. The couple received a check on March 6 from the Small Business Administration (SBA), one of the first checks issued to homeowners ravaged by the nor'easters that rocked the Cape Region this winter. Two checks totaling nearly $20,000 were given on March 6. The other went to George and Linda Draper of Millsboro, who still have pumps running to dry out their basement. "It looked just talked about everything tonight but architecture," said Fuqua. "The courts have ruled that people have the right to assume they can use their land as zoning permits, Planning commissions or other governmental bodies can't arbi- trarily reject projects that meet zoning requirements, which this project does. Rejecting this pro- ject on safety concerns or con- cerns of the neighborhood is just plain wrong. These men are enti- tled to approval." Dave Hackett, an attorney who lives near the project, responded like a river on both sides of the house," she said. Those are the first of many checks expected to be given to businesses and homeowners. As of March 5, SBA had issued 96 applications and approved $131,900 in disaster loans in Sus- sex County. Business owners who wish to apply for low-interest loans can do so until Nov. 24 and homeowners can apply until April 27. Loans cover uninsured or oth- erwise uncompensated losses on- ly. Interest rates on disaster loans can be as low as 3.625 percent, with terms extending up to 30 years. The Draper family has been able to stay in their home, but they suffered heavy damage from flooding, including a floor broken by the power of the water. that it is not up to the CARC to protect the interests of the devel- opers. 'It's up to the developer to come up with a safe proposal," said Hackett. "It's not for the committee to come up with a safe way for the developer to proceed." CARC member Bob Petterson made a motion to accept the pro- ject, saying that safety concerns weren't on the list of items the CARC asks developers to address in developing plans. Christine Lewis seconded the motion. Theirs were the only favorable votes for the project. Exciting New Merchandise Is Arriving Every Day At Webster's.

Awakened at 2 a.m. by a neighbor, they left their home at Malone's Bayside, a small mobile home park. When Michael stepped onto the porch, he realized he was standing in water, the same water which contained a smoking VHF radio only a few feet away. That was apparently enough to convince the couple to flee, wad- ing through thigh-high water to safety. The couple's dog went un- der the whitecaps twice as they waded to safety. Pattiann said the force of the water hurt her as they waded up the roadway, a trek that she said aged her 10 years. Anyone who wants more infor- mation can call 800 659-2955. April 15 is coming soon.
