The expo is sponsored by Sharp Energy and presented by the inter- net magazines "RehobothToday," "Lewes Today" and by the Cape Rudder Continued from page 46 "I remember when the Rudder was built, and I've always thought Jay did a great job with it," Pires said. "It's a grand property as far as I'm concerned, and the pur- chase price was where we wanted it. All we really negotiated over were fine points of interest to Jay, like his long term employees, the many lease contracts and their histories and, most important to him, the well-being of his four daughters, all of whom have an interest in the Ruddertowne oper- ations." Pires, who has often represent- ed farmers in legal cases during his law career, said he and Pretty- man, who grew up on a farm in Harbeson, have a lot in common and "actually enjoyed" the negoti- Gazette.

"Jay is much different than his public persona," Pires said. "He's a real family guy, easy to deal with and real down to earth. In fact, we're both very laid back, like farmers, and we mostly sat there like a couple of farm boys while the lawyers finalized the details. After all these years, it was all very easy." Pires discounted rumor that Highway One would be building a motel on part of the Rudder- towne's vast parking lot, even if town zoning were to allow such construction. "That's never been in our plans, but we would consider putting a nice-looking parking garage there sometime in the future," said Pires. "The town needs more parking; there's no doubt about that. I just want it to fit in with Dewey's character." and prizes provided by,the Re- hoboth Outlets, local stores and restaurants.
