Sea Horse Continued from page 50 The buffet is offered every Monday, according to Sea Horse General Manager Jerry Bellistri. He said a typical Monday draws about 50 children. "It is working great and parents love it. It is like a big babysitter. "I like the word free. Free is good," he laughed. He noted that many restaurants offei" reduced prices for children, but the Sea Horse wanted to offer something for no cost. "It is fun and the kids are en- joying themselves," he said. "It is getting better and better each week." Bellistri, wearing a Looney Tunes necktie, describes himself as a "big kid". He said the buffet offers the kind of fun food that we all enjoyed as children.

PROFESSIONAL INCOME TAX PREPARATION By Appointment Only Donald J. Foraker, Sr., E.A. Enrolled Agent, Member: NAEA, DAPA, NSPA Foraker & Company, P.A. 645-5558 - Independent Public Accountants DEC hosts 61st annual meeting Aug. 5 Delaware Electric Cooperative (DEC) will commemorate 61 years of business at its annual meeting on Thursday, Aug. 5 at Lake Forest High School. The doors will open at 5 p.m. for registration and traditional Co- op fried chicken dinner. The busi- ness meeting starts at 7 p.m. with entertainment to follow. Over 26,000 capital credits checks, to- taling over $969,513.25 will be available for consumers who were on DEC's lines in 1983. These capital credits represent the differ- ence between a cooperative and a privately-owned utility. "Each person served by Delaware Electric is a member and actually a part owner of the Co-op," said DEC spokesman Jim Smith. "As a result of our very positive financial position, the co- operative is returning almost one million dollars for our members of record in 1983. In a privately owned corporation, only stock- holders get a check. " Electric cooperatives are oper- ated on a non-profit basis to pro- vide a service. Any funds or mar- gins remaining at the end of the year are assigned to the members as capital credits. The margins are divided among the consumers in proportion to how much electrici- ty they paid for during the year. Margins are initially kept on hand by the Co-op for current operating funds, reserve funds and loan re- payment. When the board of di- rectors can pay back these mar- gins, the members reap the bene- fits in the form of capital credits. With the capital credits retire- ment this year, DEC will have re- funded over $4.5 million to its consumers since 1992. Last year, DEC paid out 28,000 capital cred- its checks, totaling more than $1.5 million for consumers on DEC lines in 1982 and 1983. Performing for the first time at the DEC annual meeting will be Dr. Carl Hurley, "America's Fun- niest Professor." A former profes- sor at Eastern Kentucky Universi- ty, Hurley is now a full-time speaker and humorist averaging 150 appearances per year. Hurley, who grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky, was recently featured on the Nashville Network and the Public Broadcasting Service. Other highlights of this year's annual meeting are the board of directors election, door prizes, en- tertainment and a Milford Memor- ial Hospital health fair. The regionally renowned Ep- worth Quartet will also provide musical entertainment. Door prizes include various electrical appliances and five $50 billing credits. The business meeting will include reports by the Co-op's of- ricers and the general manager re- garding projections of current and future financial stability, kilowatt- hour sales and rates. This year, there are no contested director elections and no proposed by-law amendments. The four incumbent DEC board members running unopposed are: District 3, William J. Wells, Har- rington; District 6, Douglas J. Mordes, Seaford; District 9, Al- bert H. Lank, Milton; and at large, Betty J. Benson, Milton. Incorporated in 1936, Delaware Electric Cooperative energized its first lines in 1938, serving just 223 members on 94 miles of line, with one substation. Today, DEC furnishes power to over 53,000 Kent and Sussex county customers on 4,500 miles with 22 substations.
