Kerry Kester photo Milton rehearses 'Broadkill Duck Derby' The Broadkill Duck Derby will highlight events at Bargains on the Broadkill in Milton, when 1,000 ducks will be dropped into the raging river for the onset of the great duck race. On Saturday, August 13 courageous patrons of the Milton Main Street program will watch anxiously to see which of the ducks will cross the finish line first and provide the racer with the $500 grand prize. The park behind the library is the setting for the race that begins at 1 p.m. Additional prizes in- clude a hot air balloon ride for two, courtesy of Chuck Wagn- er; a $100 clock repair from Gus Gilbert; a free night's stay at the Captain William Russell House Bed and Breakfast, cour- tesy of Tony Boyd-Heron; a reproduction tin or copper chan- delier from Benjamin Franklin's Tin and Copper Shop; brunch for two at the Blue Moon; a $50 gift certificate from Hair by Edward James; a $50 gift certificate from Wicker Vii- lage; a $50 gift certificate from Seashore Galleries; a $25 gift certificate from Georgetown Travel, and a selection of gourmet coffees from Java Beach. (The ducks are provided by Wilmington Trust.) The derby will be held in conjunction with the 9th Annual Bargains on the Broadkiil, an arts and crafts fair. The fair has fifty booths, including a booth that will sell wooden block replicas of King's Ice Cream Shop and the Milton Library. Al- so, Ed Dee, author of "14 Peck Slip" will be signing copies of his book. Bargains on the BreadkiH will be held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Milton Town Park. Shown rehearsing with a few ducks are Tony Boyd-Heron (r.), president of the Milton Main Street Committee with his young assistant, Chad Clen- daniel of Milton. The men gauged the tide with the wind to determine the best course for the ducks. 600OYV .

"We want to give people a quality product. All my carpenters are in- house, for example. This is the best way to mifintain quality." Babbie remarked that his com- pany also hires the most reputable local sub-contractors in the area. The advantage is that if you do have a problem, they're local and it's really easy to get repairs or at- tention when it's needed." Babbie CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 5 - August 11, 1994.55 said his company also offers a 10 year structural warranty on all the homes he builds as well as a one year, 100 percent warranty on everything else. He added that he always uses quality products such as Anderson or Peachtree windows and doors. Babbie recommended that anyone who is looking for a contractor should do research before hiring someone. "A good way to check out a general contractor is to check with lumber suppliers, check on their credit standing, and check their reputation with suppli- ers," he said. "Also, ask for job references. People can also go see work in progress. That's a good way to see what the standards are." Babbie has a model home at 4 Michael Court, Arnel!
