Beebe closing in on capital campaign g0al Beebe Medical Center President Jeffrey M. Fried and Paul Mylander, chairman of the Vision 2005 Capital Campaign, recently acknowledged the continuing suc- cess of the largest fundraising campaign in the history of the medical center by recording that more than $10.5 million has already been raised towards the campaign's goal of $12 million. When the total raised reaches $11 million, the Longwood Foundation will contribute a $1 million challenge grant. The Vision 2005 Capital Campaign will officially end December 2005. So far, the campaign has helped to fund the construction of' the Outpatient Care Center at Beebe's new Health Campus on Route 24. It also helped fund the $9 million central utility building on the Savannah Road Campus that made future growth possible. It is still helping to fund the present expansion of the Emergency Department. More than 2,000 individual donors already have made gifts and pledges to help ensure that Beebe will always be able to pro- vide quality health care to both residents and visitors to southeast- ern Delaware, noted R. Michael Clemmer, executive director of the Beebe Medical Foundation. Those interested in making a donation should contact the foun- dation at 644-2900.

Submitted photo Sumstine newborn The Sussex County flag license tag comes with stainless steel screws for easy mounting. Cape Gazette Salutes Sussex Since flag design should be as simple as possible, the sheaf of wheat is superimposed on the horizontal Dutch colors, there- by making a colorful and easily recognizable flag." Jim and Lisa Sumstine of Milton are pleased to announce the birth of their daughter, Kathryn Rachel "Kate" Sumstine, Sunday, March 6, 2005, at Beebe Medical Center. She weighed 8.65 pounds and was 22 inches long. Kate's maternal grand- parents are Walter J. Bryan of Lewes and the late Thelma Walls-Bryan. Her paternal grandparents are Ed and Betty Sumstine of Salisbury, Md. She also has a paternal great- grandmother, Kathryn D. Pollitt-Carey of Allen, Md. On the eve of the nation's 1976 bicentennial, Bill Scott, of Selbyville and Lewes, set out to create a flail for Sussex County, Delaware. The bound- aries of the state's largest county as they exist today were finally established just a year before the 13 colonies of England declared their inde- pendence in 1776. Through the following 200 years, Sussex County had no flag nor any real need for one. The design created by Scott includes elements related to the county's earliest European settlers: the Dutch who landed and established a community in the area of Lewes in the early and mid-1600s; and the English who later, under William Penn's guidance, con- firmed that Delaware's south- ernmost county should be known as Sussex. Scott wrote the following background history for his design: "The flag of the Netherlands since 1630 has been equally divided horizontal stripes of red, white and blue. The flag for the county has adapted this pattern but instead of equal distance the proportions of the colors are 1/4 red (on top), 1/2 white, and 1/4 blue. The sheaf of wheat comes from the fact that when Sussex County was under the. jurisdiction of William Penn, he decreed that the Sussex County seal should be identi- fied by the sheaf of wheat, Kent County by ears of corn, etc. Scott's design was present- ed to Sussex County officials on Return Day in 1974. The Cape Gazette recently ran with Scott's design idea and has created a new license tag for the front of Delaware vehicles. The newspaper joined forces with Lewes" award-winning artist Connie Costigan and commissioned a new version of Scott's design with a little artistic license. Using a representation from a stained glass window in Groome Methodist Church in Lewes as her guide, Costigan drew a Shock of stalks bending under the weight of mature wheat grains. Costigan's shock was then superimposed on the Dutch colors to create the lat- est edition of the Sussex flag. This new version arrives at a time when Sussex County is focusing on the need to pre- serve its valuable farmland. The tag punctuates the histori- cal and contemporary impor- tance of agriculture to the Sussex community. The new Sussex County flag license tag is available free to new Cape Gazette subscribers or for the nominal fee of $3 for current subscribers. The tags are also available to nonsub- scribers at a cost of $10. The tags, durable plastic with baked-on enamel paint to capture the vibrant colors of the Sussex County flag, come with a pair of stainless steel screws for easy mounting.
