16 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 20 - June26, 1997 Sussex native Chandler gets nod for state chancellor Sussex County native William B Chandler III has been nominat- ed for the po- sition of chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery. Dagsboro res- ident Chan- dler presently serves as a vice chancel- lor of the CHANDLER court, and if confirmed by the state senate, he will fill the position being vacated by Chancellor William T. Allen. Chandler's nomination has drawn praise throughout the state. He is a'Republican, but his sup- porters cross party lines. In making the nomination. Gov. Tom Carper said, "Delaware's Court of Chancery is widely con- Fortune 500 companies choose to incorporate in the First State. "I have every confidence that Bill Chandler will continue to build upon this court's legacy of judicial excellence." Before being named vice chan- cellor of the Court of Chancery in 1989, Chandler, 46, had served as an associate judge and resident judge of the Superior Court of Delaware. He was formerly an as- sociate with the law firm of Mor- ris, Nichols. Arsht and Tunnell. He has numerous accomplish- ments in the legal field, however, it is often his dedication to his family and his community com- mitments that people mention first. "This is one of the finest things t6 happen for Sussex County," said State Senator George Bunting (D-Bethany Beach). "'I've known Bill all my life, and I couldn't be their community. "He is learned in all aspects of the law, he has taught law; he brings a lot to the table in the judi- ciary. But all the while, he has done a lot for his community. He and his wife set an example as parents and leaders in the commu- nity." State Rep. John Schroeder (D-Lewes) agreed with Bunting. He said that Chandler is very in- telligent and his judicial decisions are regarded as top notch. "I think that it's just great that Bill has been recognized in this way," Schroeder said. "Our Chancery Court is one of the finest in the world for business law; it is constantly looked at, even by other countries. I know that Bill will carry on a legacy of excellence."

Guinea Creek Marina green light raises environmental hackles " By Michael Short ways, with the marina is location, cized and probably should not Permit approval for a small 16- slip marina may not sound signifi- cant, but it's been enough to raise the hackles of local environmen- talists. The 16-slip marina planned for a Long Neck project called Creek's End would be located at the headwaters of Guinea Creek. a tributary of Rehoboth Bay. It is a tributary of Herring Creek which dead ends near Road 298. The project has received a sub- aqueous lands permit and has just received a marina permit. The first permit has been challenged by the Friends of Herring Creek, an ap- peal which will be heard by Delaware's Environmental Ap- peals Board. The Friends may als o appeal the second permit, said Norman Bar- nett, the attorney for the Friends of Herring Creek. The issue, as al- Chief Continued from page 16 Avenue Boaxdwalk pavilion. "The chief had direct orders from me to clean up what was be-. coming a high trouble area. We had many-complaints from mer- chants there," Ferrese said. "There were reports of filthy language; we had graffiti printed on benches in the pavilion, new paint was be- -ing peeled off. We said, 'We won't tolerate this behavior.' "I can't fault Chief Doyle for following my orders." Ferrese said that he did regret the fact that Doyle was not in uni- form and still chose to make the Critics argue that the water is far too shallow, is poorly flushed by the action of the tides because it is at the head of the creek and is an important nursery ground for fish and wildlife. They argue that that makes it a horrible place to put a marina and they worry that dredging will be necessary for any marina to exist. Til Purnell of the Friends of Herring Creek, said that it's a fragile area which should not be home to a marina. "People have got to come to grips with the fact that this area is being overdevel- oped," she said. Jim Alderman, who chairs the Inland Bays Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), said he is "dis- appointed" by the decision. Alder- man, an ardent environmentalist, said the project was heavily criti- arrest himself rather than calling for a uniformed officer. Following the incident with Mason, the city manager said Doyle was instruct- ed to perform more administrative duties and leave street work to uniformed officers. "The fact is that the attraction of the boardwalk and tourists are our bread and butter, and we have to keep it orderly for them," Ferrese said. "I don't like the fact that the chief was not in uniform, and I've told him that a person in his posi- tion should be in uniform in such a situation." Susan Mason said that she is an- gry and disappointed that the complaint was dropped; but she does not know now if her family have been approved. The marina was originally pro- posed for 24 slips and it was heav- ily criticized last May 30 at a pub- lic hearing, particularly because the water is so shallow and boats frequently have difficulty travel- ing because of the low water level. But the developer, George "Dick" Harrison, said he plans an environmentally sound project. Harrison said that there are plans to create wetlands by planting marsh grasses and said that the project would not require any dredging. "It seems like I am going through a lot of hoops to lessen the impact... I live in Guinea Creek," Harrison said at the time. "I plan on staying there. I am committed to protecting the envi- ronment." t I will pursue a civil suit. "I thought-what happened on the boardwalk was wrong, what happened in Beau's hearing was. wrong," she said. "Now, this adds to the disillusionment with the justice system in Delaware. There has been no justice yet." Mason said she and her children have given long and hard thought to further legal action, but they do not choose to make a decision at this time. "Right now, I don't want to give this another thought. I want to move on," she said. "I will reserve the decision art further action for later. But, I think there is some- thing really sick going on there."
