Continued from page 6 Sussex County Paramedic Office is a loss, he and his fellow work- ors have established an excellent reputation of providing outstand- ing service to the people of Sussex County and those who visit here. Sussex County Council will find a replacement for Bill, but his expertise is still available. The paramedic service in the state will surely benefit with him as the new director. This is a definite step for- ward for Emergency Services. Walter Brittingham Rehoboth Beach Late term abortion barbaric According to current man-made laws, except for a few seconds or inches, file only charge against Brian Peterson, the young colle- gian who killed his baby immedi- ately after birth, could be practic- ing medicine without a license. The "doctor" with a license, with- out 'anesthesia, keeps the head of the baby in place just inches in- side the womb (with its legs and all else already out and born) and then pushes scissors into the base of its skull, making a hole big enough to insert a vacuum hose to suck it's brains. What could be more barbaric? But if seconds be- fore birth, Peterson had in some way destroyed the baby, he and his girlfriend would be today merely awaiting the customary wrist slap given to many who have practiced and do practice without a license. But he waited a few seconds too long involving a few inches of a defenseless human being. Who could call only one of these persons a murderer and the other a praiseworthy medical practitioner? Such is today's soci-- ety but the good news is, of course, the God who created that baby - a complete new human be- ing since its conception - is the same God who will forgive any- body anything if be or she truly re- pents.

There was truly something offered for everyone, from hands on chil- dren's activities and visual artist demonstrations to performances and workshops in dance, theater, and music. Organized by the Cape Hen- lopen Arts Alliance, the festival also served to raise over $1,500 in funds to support supplementary arts education in Cape Henlopen district schools. As an element of the fundraising effort, a Laura Hickman pastel donated by the artist was raffled and won by Nick Polk of Lewes. Congratulations to Nick! For their part in making the event a great success the follow- ing organizations and individuals are enthusiastically thanked and commended: Arts Alliance mem- bers, donors for the Chinese Auc- tion, workshop teachers, visual artist demonstrations, Dance Di- mensions; DECCASA Drummers and Dancers, The Finders, CHHS stu- dent government and ROTe, Band Boosters, Atlantic Lithe Printers, Browseabout Books, Norma's, community volunteers, Laura Hickman, Aimee Voshell, Miss Delaware, student perform- ors, Delaware Music School, Dance Conservancy, Hue Hue L'coytl, Rehoboth Art League, Shontell Schmidt, CHHS Admin- istration and custodial staff, CHSD PTA's and PTO's, Lam- bertson Signs, Deanna's and the Milton Public Library. Dana Dagle Long Cape Henlopen Arts Alliance Ban sale of domestic rabbits Easter, 1997, is here and I am reminded of the plight of the do- mestic rabbit. In years past, a lot of media coverage centered around parents buying rabbits for children at Easter. - However, I am writing about al- leged adults who own these ani- mals. My neighbor is a perfect ex-. ample. Two summers ago, on a day that registered over 100 degrees, my neighbor ignored his rabbit and it went into cardiac arrest due to the heat. I heard the poor animal thrash- ing about in its tiny, confining outdoor cage, I immediately went to check on the poor thing. It had kicked over its water dish so I knocked on my neighbor's door to alert him to the rabbit's distress. My neighbor and his wife had just come back from shopping (most likely in an air-conditioned outlet store!). As he opened the door to his house, a rush of cold air assaulted my face (how about the poor rab- bit?). I gave him the information about his rabbit. All he said that was that while he was shopping he thought perhaps he should bring the rai?bit inside from the blister- ing sun and sweltering, obsessive heat. Well, he had been back long enough to have acted on his thought but he hadn't. After I left, I observed that he spent precious minutes looking for the "perfect container' to transfer the rabbit in- to. Later that afternoon, when my husband saw the neighbor outside, he asked him how the rabbit was. "Oh, he died," said the neighbor nonchalantly. "It was to be expected, after all, he was old!" Now it is a year later, and this monster has another rab- bit. I have called the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Ani- mals who referred me to the Fish and Wildlife Division. I shared the information about the rabbit's death and the tiny cage he was confined in. I was told that the cage size was acceptable even though the animal could hardly move in it. Suppos- edly, there is nothing these organi- zations can do to ensure that the quality of life for domestic rabbits is improved. Since that is the case, there should be a total ban on rabbit sales.
