Lewes man honored by House of Representatives as former TV staffer The Delaware House of Repre- sentative paid tribute March 28 to two former staff members of WPVI-TV (Channel 6) during ceremonies on the House floor. Rep. David Ennis (R-Fox Point), a former' resident of Delaware County, Pa., honored Paul Norton, producer and host of Channel 6's Perspective Delaware, as well as the similar shows, Perspective New Jersey and Perspective Pennsylvania. The Perspective Delaware show covered local news topics of in- terest to people in the First State. Ennis related Norton's ability to offer viewers stories of human in- terest, including Norton's efforts to help promote the Blood Bank of Delaware in the 1970s. Norton conducted his interview from a blood donor chair while actually donating a pint of blood. Throughout the 37 years that Norton was with WPVI-TV, much of the time he produced and hosted the show. He provided ex- cellent coverage for the issues which were most important to the citizens of Delaware. Upon retire- ment a few years ago, Norton and his wife, Nancy, retired to Lewes. He has since become active in a number of community organiza- tions and has shared some of his many years of experience in the TV industry with staff and stu- dents at Delaware Technical & Community College. Traynor "Chief" Halftown was the second WPVI-TV personality honored by the House of Repre- sentatives. Chief HaJftown, Who produced and hosted TV shows for youngsters in the Delaware Valley, brought quality television programming into the homes of area children for more than 50 years. His weekday afternoon shows and children's talent shows on Saturday were the highlight of 'tribe' members' growing-up years. Halftown's visit to the Delaware Legislature was timely. Halftown has been a kidney dial- ysis patient for one-year and his visit to Legislative Hall followed by just a few days the introduc- tion of a proclamation by Gov. Thomas Carper declaring March Kidney Month in Delaware. Rep. Gerald Buckworth (R- Buchanan Acres), a kidney trans- plant patient, spent time visiting with Halftown during his stay in the state capital.
