She said President Bush "put military machinery back on the streets," and that he's failed to make the nation and the world safer, as he promised. "Why would I want someone like that back in office?" she asked." "He's had his chance for four years." Despite their differences, both were determined that their votes were important. "It's why we live in America," Peterson said. "Everyone gets a chance." Just behind them in line was Jim Zeidler, who turned 18 in Office Continued from page 17 tributors to the "Acquisition and Design Stage" of the Park project. Refreshments will be served and Lewes mayor Jim Ford will for- really thank those whose gifts en- abled the city to receive the for- mer Lewes Boatyard property. Also to be announced that day is the kick-off of a year-long cam- paign to raise the funds needed to complete the construction stage of the park. The official objective of Cam- paign for the Park: 2005 will be $3.2 million, to be raised from a combination of private and public sources. The fundraising effort will run through October 2005, according to Joe Schell who, with his wife, Debbie, will serve as campaign chairs for the next phase of the park's development. The first visible sign of con- structi0n is the renovation of the park building, which once sat near Cape Shores when it was used by Fish Products Co., to store fishing nets. After being moved to its cur- rent site in 1982 the building served for l0 years as a bait and tackle shop and office. "For the next 12 months, the building will be used by the - Friends as a campaign headquar- ters," Ford said. 'Fhe park project manager, whom the city will ap- point soon, will also work there to meet with contractors and oversee the park's construction." In time, Ford said, the building could serve as the administrative offices for a new city parks director. Construction activities are set to begin late this year and continue through various phases into early 2007, Ford added. "Our immediate campaign ob- jective is to re-energize the Lewes community around the park," Schell said. "There has been a lull in the de- velopment activities while the city received public input, designed the park to reflect that input and applied for and received all neces- sary environmental permits. We understand that people are anx- ious for progress to occur and we intend to involve them in positive ways in the creation of this very important asset for the city of Lewes." Schell noted that the Friends or- ganization has retained Michael Rawl of Lewes, president of Hori- zon Philanthropic Counseling, to guide them through the year-long campaign. Under Rawl's direc- tion, a governing board and 15 campaign committees are being formed with more than 75 local volunteers participating in the ef- fort. "During the coming year we will hold a number of neighbor- hood receptions at the park build- ing to reacquaint people with the Canalfront project," Rawl said. "The building will be open daily for anyone who wishes to learn about the status of the park's con- struction." "Exhibits on the building walls, designed by Lewes artist Connie Miller, and brochures, will illus- trate the history of the canal and future plans for the park," he added. The former mayor of Lewes, ,George Smith, and Lewes native Capt. Rowland Marshall, will serve as honorary cochairs of the campaign for the park. Dennis Forney, publisher of the Cape Gazette, serves as campaign vice chair. Other governing board mem- bers include David Burton, Ford, James Rifenbergh, Donald Ross, John Schroeder, W. Joseph Stew- art, Nancy Targett and Lee Ann Wilkinson. Master Installers Lightning Rods areReal Security surge Arrestors March.
