,%&apos;. 60 -CAPE GAZETI, Friday, June 19 - June 25, 1998 Chamber take; Milton into print, onto net By Rosanne Pack The Milton Chamber of Com- merce is taking the little town on the Broadkill into the world of communications in rapid order In a recent board of directors meet- ing, plans were made for refloat- ing "The Milton Clipper" newspa- per and for entering the electronic network with a page on the Inter- net. "The Clipper" has been in dry dock for almost two years while the chamber got its financial and organizational houses in order. Board President Ed Harris an- nounced that the bank statement is sound and community desire has remained strong for the monthly paper that the chamber published for several years. The new "Clipper" is expected to be in print by July. Harris said Corinne Cresson, new executive secretary of the chamber, and several members have been gathering information and soliciting submissions from Milton residents. He credited Cresson's newspaper business ex- perience as a boost to getting the "Clipper" up and running. "This is going to be a true little community paper," Harris said. "We will have lots of what was in the original Clipper, and lots of new features. We have people writing columns, we will have news on recreation, business, or- ganizations and churches. It's go- ing to have a whole new look." In the same June 16 meeting, chamber member Marcell Chep- licki said that he will be offering pages on his Web site to members and Milton organizations. Chep- licki and his wife took a Web site to showcase their bed and break- fast, The Victorian Jewel, and he said they are more than happy to have other Milton information in- cluded. In addition to photo displays of the bed and breakfast and infor- mation about the historic home, the Cheplickis included some in- formation about Milton and the resort area. Several board members said they want a page on the Web site and Harris said the chamber will be using the site to advertise Mil- ton events. The Web site address is <www.miltonde.com>.

DEC spokesman Jim Smith said, "This is an inspiring educa- tional experience for our local stu- dents. Not only will they see how things work in our nation's capi- tal, they will also network with young people from all over the country. This conference will have a lasting impact on them."

The head of a consumers group based in California has weighed in with a stamp of approval for H.B. 570. Jim Conran, president of Consumers First, said he looked at the bill as part of a study of dereg- ulation legislation nationwide. In his opinion, the bill balances the needs of and provides protection for the various stakeholders. He said, "No customers would benefit at the expense of others, and there are protections against abuses on the part of energy mar- keters. "In addition, Delaware's geo- graphic location, amidst some of translate into lower electric bills for customers." The Senate has until June 30 to pass H.B. 570. If that happens and the law successfully passes across the governor's desk, DP&L' cus- tomers could began to make ener- gy choices in July 1999; DEC cus- tomers, January 2000. Consumer education workshops will be of- fered as early as summer 1998. The amount of savings will be determined by costs of fuel, gen- eration, transmission, distribution and other services. "Delaware is in the middle of the road of the national average regarding electric rates," Smith said. "We need to keep our state competitive and H.B. 570 will help us do it."
