52. CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, May 23, May 29. 1997 Milton Chamber nominates officers By Rosanne Pack For an organization that was de- bating disbanding a few months ago, the Milton Chamber of Com- merce is showing lots of life now as members work on a full agen- da. In a meeting this week, candi- dates for officers and new direc- tors were announced, and reports were made on upcoming events. Nominated for president are Jim Clark, James Robert Clark Archi- tect, and Ed Harris, A Walk Through Time Antiques; for vice president, the nominee is Don Post and for secretary, the nomi- nee is Debbie Spencer, Debbi's Clippers and Curls. Donna John- son, Rehoboth Bay Realty Centu- ry 21, is nominated to serve as parliamentarian. There are two open seats on the board of directors, and the nomi- nees for the positions are Ben Leighton, Front Street Corpora- tion, Debbie Coverdale, Movie Time Video; Tony Boyd-Heron, Capt. William Russell House and Pauline Wilson, Wilson's Sun- shine Marina. Since the board of directors finds itself in the position of hav- ing all previous officers finishing terms of service at the same time, the election will be to fill offices and board positions until 1998. Chair of the nominating commit- tee, Kathy McGinniss said that a remedy must be found for having all officers leave at once; howev- er, the committee recommended that the election take place now and the problem of terms of office be dealt with later. Members discussed potential remedies to ensure overlapping terms, but agreed to proceed with the election. A committee will be named to propose a solution and review any necessary changes in terms or to the bylaws. The com- mittee did have two recommenda- tions for amendments to the by- laws. One is in regard to the cham- ber's representative to the Sussex County Convention and Tourism Commission. The committee rec- ommended that the board consider specifying that the term of com- missioner be designated as one of two years, and be filled by an ap- pointment of the board. The rec- ommendation further stated that the commissioner serve at the will of the board and be answerable to the board. By a two-thirds majority, re- moval from office could result from the commissioner not fulfill- ing her or his duties. The position of parliamentarian was included in the recommenda- tions. Committee members stated that the position be added to the slate of officers, and that the term should be two years. The nominations were accepted as presented by the committee, and were closed when there were no nominations from the floor. McGinniss said that committee members contacted 75 members when choosing candidates. She said that all nominees were found to have current paid membership. Ballots will be mailed to all members in good standing, and must be mailed to or delivered to the chamber office by Friday, June 13. New officers and board mem- bers will be announced at the Tuesday, June 17 board meeting. The two board positions to be filled are those of Jay Dunlap, who chose to not serve another term at the end of this term, and Bruce Churchman, who resigned because his family will be moving from the Milton area. Johnson, present representative to the SCCTC, commented on the high regard that commission members had for previous com- missioner Boyd-Heron. She said he was looked at as an extremely hard worker and had served as a leading proponent of keeping smaller communities in the public eye in terms of tourism. She said that she personally commends him for his service on behalf of Milton and other small towns in Sussex County. Boyd- Heron will continue to serve as a volunteer on SCC'I committees. There was preliminary discus- sion on chamber committees that are working on summer and fall projects. Post will serve as chair of Bargains on the Broadkill, and Clark is chair of the Pumpkin Fes- tival. Delmarva offers spring cleaning safety tips Delmarva Power is encouraging spring cleaners and do-it-yourselfers to put safety at the top of their lists, and has issued the following tips: Use the proper safety equipment, including safety glasses and gloves. Inspect and replace any damaged tools. Use proper lifting techniques; lift with your legs, not your back. Throw away any extension cords that are cut, frayed or don't have a proper grounding plug. While working outside, use outlets equipped with Ground Fault Cir- cuit Interrupters (GFCIs). For outdoor projects that require digging, call Miss Utifity at least two days before you dig. The number for Miss Utiliiy is (800) 282- 8555. Avoid planting trees directly beneath power lines. Leave enough clearance for the tree to grow and move with the wind without becom- ing entangled in the lines. E;X ]00PTION00J.
