Rehoboth to revamp Silver Lake Drive The City of Rehoboth Beach will temporarily close Silver Lake Drive during the day onMay 13- 14 in order to install state speci- fied speed humps designed to slow down traffic on that winding road. They will also install temporary curbing designed to prevent vehi- cles from turning left onto the Sil- ver Lake Bridge. Rather, traffic heading south will be forced to turn right and make a U-turn on Bayard Avenue in order to tra- verse the bridge. FEHRENBACH'S CARPET PLUS Georgetown lawyer on inactive status Elizabeth K. Rodriguez, a Delaware lawyer practicing in Georgetown, has been transferred to disability inactive status until further notice by order of the Delaware Supreme Court. Richard F. Stokes has been ap- pointed receiver of her practice and any clients with questions about their cases should contact him at 856-7313. Prior to being transferred back to active status, Rodriguez must face disciplinary charges con- tained in a petition for interim sus- pension that the Office of Disci- plinary Counsel filed with the Delaware Supreme Court April 8. According to the court order handed down April 16, there is sufficient evidence that Rodriguez "has committed violations of the Delaware Lawyers' Rules of Pro- fessional Conduct, and that she poses a substantial threat of ir- reparable harm to her clients, her prospective clients and the o(dedy administration of justice." The order goes on to state that she was unable to assist in her de- fense due to "mental incapacity and is presently a patient in the Pennsylvania Institute" and con- sented to the appointment of a re- ceiver pending her reinstatement to the practice of law. Two parades in Lewes on Saturday, April 27 Lewes will be loaded with pa- raders on Saturday, April 27 as the annual Lewes Little League pa- rade and the Lewes Fire Depart- ment's 200th Anniversary Parade take to Savannah Road. The Little League parade will begin at 9 a.m. and will form in the parking lot of Lewes Middle School before moving down Sa- vannah Road to Second Street and then on to the Little League Park. The firemen's parade will begin at 1 p.m. at the Lewes Beach parking lot and will proceed up Savannah Road to Sussex Drive before dis- banding at the Lewes Middle School. The public is invited to come out and observe the parades of both of these important communi- ty organizations. Police matters continue to dominate in Lewes Police matters continue to play a prominent role in the business of the City of Lewes. In addition to searching for a new chief, thede - partment began advertising this week for a new officer to replace Officer Garey Jump who resigned effective April 21. Mayor George Smith said he wants to move for- ward quickly in hiring a new chief from the 46 applicants for the po- sition. He said he was inclined to have the city council act as a screening committee and get on with inter- views rather than taking another 30 days to set up a separate com- mittee. "It's ultimately our responsibil- ity to make the decision and I want to get on with the process." He also said that the engineers who designed the addition to the city hall for a new police depart- ment are reviewing bids and meet- ing with contractors to determine why bids came in so much higher than the $500,000 estimated to complete the project. Bids came in in the $700,000 range and city council members accepted none of them because that amount was not budgeted. Smith said a public workshop meeting to review new informa- tion about the project and to begin determining which way to go next will not be held until after the May 11 mayor and city council elec- tion. Lewes architecture review group to meet The city of Lewes Commercial Architecture Review Commission will meet Thursday, May 2 at city hall on East Third Street begin- ning at 6:30 p.m. The public is in- vited to attend.

The second project involves a request on behalf of Mike Makowski to construct two board- ing houses on property he has contracted to purchase at Cape Henlopen Drive and Maryland Avenue on Lewes Beach. The Commercial Architecture Review Commission reviews de- sign of buildings to keep them consistent with other architecture in surrounding areas and the rest of town. Lewes Board of Ethics to meet April 30 The Lewes Board of Ethics will meet on Tuesday, April 30 at 7:30 p.m. in city hall on East Third Street.

Shafer will speak on the Sussex County comprehensive plan, which is presently being devel- oped. The group will also consider a resolution supporting farmland preservation and open space. That resolution reads "'that the Sussex County Association of Towns goes on record as supporting Gov- ernor Carper's recommendations for continued funding of open space and farmland preservation initiatives under the 21st Century Fund." The resolution was considered at the April meeting of the Associ- ation of towns. Approximately 230 other orga- nizations have expressed support for the resolution, but SCAT tabled the resolution at its April meeting. The meeting is Wednesday, May 1 at the Millsboro Civic Cen- ter with social hour at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. The price is $16.50 per person. Please call for reservations at 934-8171 not later than noon, Fri- day, April 26. Please make checks payable to Town of Millsboro. Postal food drive benefits Casa The Postal Service will be pick- ing up non-perishable food items on May 11. Postal patrons are asked to leave food items by their mailbox on that day for pickup by postal workers. The National Association of Letter Carriers collects the food every year and then donates it to local food banks. Last year, nearly 45 million pounds of food was collected nationwide and distrib- uted to the needy. The fund drive comes at a time when food banks need replenish- ing because holiday donations have dwindled and left them with few resources. The annual drive is conducted in conjunction with the Postal Ser- vice, the United Way and the AFL-CIO. Last year's local drive collected 500 pounds of food, but postal of- ficials hope to collect more food this year. All local donations will go to Casa San Francisco in Milton. Casa operates an emergency food bank as well as providing other services for the needy. \\; CAPE GAZE'IrE, Friday, April 26 - May 2, 1996 - 11 SPPJNG CLEANINGT CALL US FOR CARPETS w.
