CAPE , Friday, November 6 ' movemr 12'"i-15 Driver found in Harbeson hit-and-run fatality; charges filed The driver of a hit-and-run col- lision that killed a Felton woman in August will face trial in Superi- or Court, possibly as early as Jan- uary 1999. Following a Sussex County grand jury indictment in October, Delaware State Police arrested Jean Paul Emile, 48, of Seaford, for leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident. Shortly after midnight Aug. 8, Carolyn Weatherly, 31, was walk- ing toward a service station on Route 9. near Harbeson, after her car broke down. She was struck from behind by a light-colored car, believed to be a 1980-85 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Her 11-year- old son, who was walking ahead of her, was narrowly missed in the collision. Weatherly was trans- ported to Beebe Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. The vehicle that struck her left the scene of the accident, and troopers from the Fatal Accident Investigation and Reconstruction (FAIR) team asked for assistance car was impounded; state police released on $1,000 unsecured from the community in identifying evidence technicians compaied bond, pending his Tuesday, Dec. 8 the operator of the'car.+: Informa-  auto parts from the scene of the  easereview.

Clerk of the Peace D. Ray been a lady throughout the entire Continued on page 16 Ellerman woke up at 3:30 a.m. on election day and went to bed at midnight. Ellerman and other county row office candidates campaigned hard on Election Day, doing some last-minute stumping to reach every possible voter. When the dust cleared. Sussex County voters had re-elected Ellerman to clerk of the peace, de- feating well-known former Mills- boro Mayor Thelma Monroe. Voters returned former Register of Wills Howard Clendaniel to his previous position. Clendaniel, a Democrat, defeated incumbent Charles Rogers by only 469 votes out of more than 37,000 votes cast. Republican Rick Bell won the recorder of deeds position and Republican Robert Reed, a Georgetown policeman, defeated Milton Hill to become Sussex County sheriff. Three of the four candidates elected are Republicans. One of two incumbents was returned to his job. In the Clendaniel-Rogers race, voters returned a former in- cumbent to office. In the other two races, there was no incumbent running for re- election. Sussex County row office races are riormally marked by few is- sues and a great deal of civility far more so than in many other races. Nowhere was that more ev- ident than in the race between Ellerman and Monroe. If there is a fun office to hold, it is the clerk of the peace because you get to marry people. Eller- man, known for his humor, says that he performs house calls to marry people and likes the job be- cause he likes to be around happy people. He faced a political juggernaut in Monroe, former Sussex County Association of Towns president, former Indian River School Board member and a member of Mills- boro's town council for 19 years. The two often joked good na- turedly. When Ellerman got his coat caught while trying to stand up to speak at one meeting, he joked that Monroe "is sitting on my coat tails." Monroe called Ellerman on Wednesday to congratulate him. Plantations. The Perfect Place. Immediate Occupancy. Available Now!
