Above, Joe Hudson, center, receives the John W. Rollins Sr. Award for Healthcare Philanthropy from Sen. Tom Carper while Rep. Joe Booth, R-Georgetown, looks on. Hudson played a significant part in the phenomenal suc- cess of the recently complet- ed Vision 2005 Capital Campaign. Saying that Hudson's and Rollins' lives parallel in many ways, Carper noted that each strove to improve the condi- tions of others through their philanthropic support of health-care programs. Beebe presents awards The boards of directors of Beebe Medical Center and the Beebe Medical Foundation recently presented four presti- gious philanthropic and service awards to individuals who have made a significant difference to Beebe and to the quality of healthcare it brings to the commu- nities it serves. The Norman B. Baylis Award, which honors a community mem- ber for outstanding service to healthcare and to the broader community, was presented to Rehoboth Beach resident James J. Martin. In 1999, after the death of his wife Joan and her friend Jean James, Martin established the Jean and Joan Fund to provide care and comfort for cancer patients during their battle against the disease. The fund sponsors a golf tournament at Kings Creek Country Club each year that so far has raised more than $162,000 for Beebe Medical Center's Tunnell Cancer Center. Martin, now retired, moved to the Rehoboth Beach area with his wife in 1980 from Arizona to become vice president and general manager of the Barcroft Chemical Manufacturing Facility in Lewes, now known as SPI Pharma. Martin is a Korean War Veteran and was a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The funds have supported shuttle vans to transport patients for treat- ment, the purchase of clini- cal equipment and the fund- ing of a ceiling mural for the linear accelerator room to provide a tranquil image. Dan Cook photos About 15 percent of an average home energy bill goes to heating water. To save hot water, set your hot water heater to 120 and take showers instead of baths. Keep the lids on pots when cooking. Better yet, use a microwave oven instead. Weather-strip and insulate the attic hatch or door to prevent warm air from leaking out of the house. Become your family's "energy warden"--and save money every month. Conserving energy is one of the best ways to fight rising utility bills. The Consumer Energy Education Group (CEEG) was formed to help Delawareans learn about available energy resources and help manage their energy costs. :. :;::::::::::.-:..:. -
