Lewes Historical Society shoots video Lewes Historical Society and Lyons Marketing Communica- tions recently completed filming a new video about the soci- ety which is expected to be ready for the 1998 season. Ac- cording to Mike Tyler of Lewes Historical Society, the pur- pose of the video is to serve as an introduction to the build- m ings and holdings of Lewes Historical Society. "We also " - eluded interviews with people such as Lewes historian Hazel Brittingham, to help provide a sense of the special role of his- tory in the Lewes experience, n said Tyler. The filming crew spent several days with the interviews and inside the Soci- ety's buildings, including the Lightship Overfall the Ryves Holt House on Second Street, the Marine Mqein the Can- nonball House, and the collection of!miidings in the complex at Shipearpenter and Third streets; Once complete, the video will be available for viewing by visitors to the complex and possibly also at theRyves Holt House. "The Ryves Holt House, which the society now administers, is closer to down. town Lewes and having the film there might serve to attract more visitors to the historic complex," said Tyler. "Our goal with the video is to whet the interest of visitors so they might want to buy a tour ticket and delve more deeply into our his- tory." Shown in front of the Rabbits Ferry House in the his- toric complex during a break in the filming are (l-r) Ed Patchell, past LHS president; Liz Dunlevy, associate director for the project; Michael Angelo DiLauro, director of filming; and Dan White, account supervisor for Lyons Marketing Communications.

Locked within Sus- sex Correcti0nal institution near Georgetown, Sussex Boot Camp - the first of its kind in the state - is a rigorous, six-month program for inmates,combining a highly regi- mented program of exercise, edu- cation, substance-abuse therapy and military-style discipline. The boot camp, which opened in April, is geared toward low-level offenders and focuses on behavior modification and rehabilitation of young offenders. As part of their rehabilitation, cadets who are sev- eral months into the boot camp program earn the opportunity to perform community-service work under the watchful eyes of drill in- structors and correctional officers. "Working on these types of pro- jects give boot camp cadets a di- rect opportunity to repay the com- munity for their previous acts," said boot camp Cmdr. Rick Tabler. "Community service is an important part of our boot camp curriculum." Earlier this year, Shields Elementary School offi- cials ,said maintenance -mostly sanding wood roughened from use and harsh weather - was needed on the Lewes school's large, wooden playground. Problem was, playground maintenance funds were not available. During the school's summer break, cadets sanded and smoothed the entire wooden playground, reducing the number of splinter visits to the nurse's office this school year. Also during the summer, boot camp cadets removed Rehoboth Beach Elementary's furniture in preparation for the school's as- bestos removal project. Acting Principal Mary Walker praised the cadets for their outstanding work. "On national 'Make a Differ- ence Day,' (Oct. 26), the cadets will refurbish a playground at Coverdale Crossroads in the Seaford area," Tabler said. "We look forward to helping communi- ty groups in all parts of Sussex County." Nonprofit community groups that need some help on projects may call 856-5287. HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED?
