I m iii! I! Steven Billups photo Smoke detector given away In a statewide program, Delaware State Police at all 60 fire- houses in Delaware gave away smoke detectors April 2. State Fire Police encourage the public to test all smoke detectors twice a year at the fall and spring time changes. Shown is Ralton Dennis, center, of the Delaware State Police at the Lewes Fire House explaining a smoke detector to Taylor and Nancy Ingram of Lewes. Portrait Continued from page 14 McCabe, Jones said. "He also built the Florence Creadick. She had her bow and stern blown off by a torpedo in World War I," he said. Jones said the Creadick was so well constructod that she still made it to France and delivered her cargo. She was later rammed at dockside and sunk but was raised, rebuilt and renamed. Jones said the renamed vessel wa s later presumed lost at sea with all hands when life rings bearing her new name were found in the open ocean. Jones said Milton-built sailing vessels plied the waters of the Eastern Seaboard, and abroad, car- rying cargos of lumber, manure, bricks, coal, tobacco, cotton, fish, sugar, ice and just about anything else needed for life in a develop- ing America. And it all happened before indoor plumbing was common, before the first Model-T was clunking down Sussex County's rutted roads and when a dollar a day was an above-average wage. Much of Jones' life has contin- ued to revolve around Milton's waters. He grew up along the banks of the town's Lavinia Pond where he sometimes daydreamed of life aboard a sailing ship. "A boy always thinks about the adventures of the sea," he said. In the early 1980s, he sailed his own 24-foot day cruiser, the "Sea Lady," into downtown Milton, becoming the first in generations of Milton mariners to do so. Today, Jones operates his Milton Boat Rentals business on property he owns along the banks of the Broadkill. "It provides an opportunity for children to have a boating experi- ence they otherwise might not have," he said.
