Methodist Manor House under a new management structure
By Lynn R. Parks
A Pennsylvania-based not-for-profit company has taken over control of the three continuing care retirement facilities in Delaware that were operated by Peninsula United Methodist Homes. Those facilities include the Methodist Manor House in Seaford. ACTS has assumed management
and operation of the facilities as well as of Heron Point of Chestertown (Md.), also part of Peninsula United Methodist Homes (PUMH). The new affiliation was effective May 1. Both ACTS and PUMH are notfor-profit entities. No money changed hands in the deal and PUMH remains a separate legal entity from ACTS. PUMH has its own board of direc-
tors, which answers to the ACTS board. Whether the group of retirement facilities will keep the name Peninsula United Methodist Homes is still under discussion, said Marvin Mashner, president and CEO of ACTS. “We would like to keep the name because of its history,” he added. “But the Peninsula United Methodist Continued to page four

‘BFF’ BILL - State Rep. Dan Short (middle) with Delaware Economic Development Office Director Alan Levin (left) and State Rep. Mike Ramone at a recent press event in Dover during which Governor Markell unveiled the “BFF” (Business Finders’ Fee) legislation, which is aimed at bringing new jobs to the state.

‘Dinner in the Library’ fundraiser May 22 in the Cultural Center
The Steering Group and Friends of the Seaford Library are putting the finishing touches on plans for their 1st annual “Dinner in the Library,” scheduled for the evening of Saturday, May 22, in the Cultural Center of the library. Music by the Medics will greet guests in the foyer, and continue throughout the evening for listening and dancing pleasure. The gala will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 6 to 7 p.m., during which time items will be on display for the silent auction. A dinner catered by The Georgia House will be served at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room, with a cash bar in the Exhibit Room, open both during and after dinner. After dinner, author Nancy E. Lynch will speak about her book “Vietnam Mailbag, Voices from the War, 1968-1972”. As a young reporter, Lynch relayed the hopes and fears, the joy and tears of hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines from Delaware through the Vietnam Mailbag column she wrote in the Wilmington Morning News. Forty years after she began writing her column, Nancy incorporated those letters into her book, which gives a new generation a fresh look at the first-person accounts of troops in the combat zone. The results of the silent auction will be announced after Lynch’s presentation, while music for dancing continues in the foyer. The cost for the evening is $75, $45 of which is considered a charitable donation to the library. Proceeds of the auction will go toward the construction fund. For tickets and more information, contact Betty Wilbanks at 629-2466.

Local garden show features the best flowers around Seaford’s new public library, where the Spade and Trowel Garden Club is installing a patio garden, was a perfect setting for the club’s joint flower show with the Laurel Garden Club on April 13. Winning not only first place in the “Painted Ladies’ Parlors’ class but the Designer’s Choice Award and Best in Show, Susan McCoy of Seaford also took Best in Show for the horticulture division for her tree peony. This was her first flower show. There were four entries each in four design classes. Taking first place in “Ross
Mansion Elegance” was a colorful entry by Ann O’Dea of Seaford. The blue ribbon for “Along the Waterfront” went to Lettie Perry of Seaford and also captured the President’s Award presented by Mary Noel of Spade and Trowel Club. First place in the “Trap Pond’s Treasure” and the Laurel Club President’s Award presented by Patricia Malinchak went to Carol Kinsley of Seaford, also showing in a flower show for the first time. There were 186 horticulture entries. The Show Chairman’s Award, presented

Conference may feel differently.” Mashner spoke to residents of the Manor House Tuesday afternoon. He told them that things at the retirement facility will remain pretty much as they are. “In many ways, you won’t see much of a change,” he told the residents. All contracts with current residents will be honored and the current staff of about 200, including executive director Linda Messersmith, will remain, he added. But Mashner said following his remarks that ACTS will look for new ways that the Manor House can reach out to the Seaford community, perhaps providing homehealth care, something other ACTS facilities do. Other possibilities include providing hospice care and admitting people in all stages of health. Before this affiliation, the Manor House only admitted people in reasonably good health, and promised to care for them throughout their lives. “We will be looking at the community at large to see what its challenges are and how we can best serve it,” Mashner said. Mashner praised the wellness center at the Manor House, calling it one of the best he has seen. “It is an excellent program and we hope to be able to learn from it and apply those lessons to our other facilities,” he said. William Holloway, past president of the PUMH board, told the Manor House residents that the affiliation with ACTS evolved after PUMH reached out to other organizations for advice in weathering economic hard times. Talks with ACTS started in early 2009. “As we looked for ways to make our

economies more successful, we turned to others to share their efforts,” he said. As a result, PUMH received several offers for mergers, Holloway said. “We realized that we could be stronger if we were part of a bigger group,” he said. ACTS was one of five organizations that the PUMH board selected to have discussions with. “And we came to the conclusion that the organization we most wanted to talk to was ACTS,” Holloway said. Like PUMH, it is a not-for-profit operator. “And it also had a religious background,” he added. ACTS’ first facility, Fort Washington Estates in suburban Philadelphia, was founded by a non-denominational church. Holloway said that it was difficult for the board to decide to give up its autonomy. “But we realized that our duty as trustees is not to the corporation, but to all of you,” he told the residents. “We wanted to make sure that that promise that we made to you will be upheld.” The Methodist Manor House, the second facility constructed by Peninsula United Methodist Homes, was built in 1966. It has about 190 residents in three levels of care, independent, assisted living and skilled care. With its affiliation with PUMH, ACTS, founded in 1972 in suburban Philadelphia, has 23 retirement facilities, in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida. In total, its facilities have about 9,000 residents and 6,000 staff members. It is the largest not-for-profit owner, operator and developer of continuing care retirement communities in the U.S.

Older Americans are celebrated
Starting a new exercise routine wasn’t easy for Martha Robins, but it sure has been worth it. “I like to exercise,” she says. For 30 years, she worked in chicken plants, doing physically rigorous tasks. Martha says it wasn’t uncommon for chicken plant workers to have serious injuries that prevented them from being able to work. Martha was lucky — she was never seriously injured while working. After her retirement at the age of 60, however, she developed a painful arthritic condition, especially in her shoulder. Martha takes part in exercise classes at the Nanticoke Senior Center. Many other participants her age (she’ll be 80 in November) have difficulty doing strenuous activity standing up. Nanticoke offers a series of exercises that can be done while sitting in a chair. Martha says that, at first, the stretches were hard to do, but they worked. “Doing the exercises makes my arm feel better,” she says. “It’s hard at first, but it gets easier the more you do.” She felt so good, she decided to take her own exercise one step further. “We have an elastic that you pull out and in to your chest. I bought one elastic thing so I could do it at home,” she says. Martha does light aerobic exercise, too: going for walks and climbing stairs. “[It makes] my legs feel better. It’s easier to move around.” The Sussex County Aging Network (SCAN) is sharing Martha’s story in cel-

ebration of Older Americans Month. Since 1963, the U.S. has set aside the month of May to acknowledge the contributions and accomplishments of older Americans. This year’s theme is “Age Strong! Live Long!” One way that SCAN agencies help seniors fulfill this ambition is by providing exercise and health information programs to seniors. SCAN wants seniors to take an active interest in their own health and well-being. SCAN’s celebration of Older Americans month culminates with Older Americans Day, on May 28.

Business Bottle Bill would end deposits, encourage curbside recycling
A measure bringing all Delawareans the option of curbside recycling and ending the Bottle Bill deposit program cleared the Senate recently on a 17-3 vote. If the bill is approved by the House and signed by Gov. Jack Markell, the state’s 5-cent deposit on a variety of glass and plastic bottles would end in December. It would be replaced by a four-year, 4-cent charge on the same containers. That money would be used to cover the recycling program’s startup costs. Consumers who bought bottles under the deposit program would have until Feb. 1, 2011, to collect their deposits. Besides axing the bottle bill, the measure would get the Delaware Solid Waste Authority out of the curbside recycling
business. It would defer that responsibility to municipalities or their contract waste haulers. Under the bill, municipalities and haulers would provide single-family homes, restaurants and bars with recycling bins by September 2011, multi-family residences, such as apartment complexes, would be brought into the program by January 2013 and other businesses would be added by January 2014. The bill also sets out statewide recycling goals. Delaware has long been faulted by environmentalists in state and nationally for having a very low recycling rate. The bill’s targets include a 50 percent rate by 2015 and a 60 percent rate by 2020.
Members of the Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) joined with the Sussex County Council on Tuesday, April 13, to observe the anniversary of the 1968 Fair Housing Act. Declared “Fair Housing Month” in Sussex County by the five-member council, April marks the 42nd year since the passing of the legislation, also known as Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act. United States President Lyndon Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act on April 11, 1968. The law has allowed for significant advancements in fair housing practices and created federal enforcement guidelines regarding discrimination based on race, color, religion or national origin. But improvements still need to be made. According to the United States Census Bureau, more than 75 percent of white families own their own home, compared to only about 50 percent of black and Hispanic households. The designation of April as “Fair Housing Month” in Sussex County brings attention to the continuing battle for equal opportunities under federal law. The Sussex County Council approved the procla-
mation, which they recognized during their weekly meeting on April 13. “Every American is assured, by law, the right to fair housing opportunities, regardless of who they are, what they believe, or where they come from,” Council President Vance C. Phillips said. “The Sussex County Council recognizes the importance of such a basic right. We’re proud to use this proclamation as a way to raise awareness about fair housing, and we look forward to our partnership with the Sussex County Association of Realtors in continuing that mission.” While laws vary from state to state, a 28-member Human Relations Commission governs fair housing issues in Delaware. Members are appointed by the governor and operate under a mandate to “ensure equal opportunity for all people of Delaware by protecting against practices that discriminate based on race, color, age, religion, marital status, familial status, national origin or disability.” To learn more about the Fair Housing Act of 1968, visit the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s website at www.hud.gov.

MORNING STAR • MAy 6 - 12, 2010
Carolyn Calio serves at helm of fundraiser for 20 years By James Diehl
arolyn Calio has a special bond with the town of Laurel; a place very near and dear to her heart, she never plans on leaving her beloved hometown, no matter who or what tries to make her do so. “I’ve been disgruntled with the town before, and [my husband] Frank actually talked about moving out of town one time,” says Calio, who was born and raised in Laurel and is a graduate of the Laurel High School Class of 1960. “But I said we weren’t going anywhere. I was born in this town; this is my town and nobody who comes in is going to tell me what to do because I was here first.” A mother of five children – all graduates of the Laurel Public School System – the Calios today live a quiet life in the home they have occupied for decades. Frank Calio is a businessman and former state elections commissioner, while his wife has devoted much of her life, at least the last 20 years of it, to the Laurel Alumni Association. Founded in the late 1980s as a way of bringing graduates of Laurel High School together for one night each year – and awarding scholarships to as many deserving seniors as possible – the association today boasts more than 1,000 members from LHS classes spanning 80 years. This year marks the 20th consecutive year the alumni association has held its annual banquet at the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department, and the 20th year that Calio has been in charge of the event. The 2010 banquet on May 15 also marks the final time she will be in charge of the festivities. “This is my final year and I’m going to miss a lot of the people who are on my committee,” says Calio, who feels it’s time to give someone else a chance, though she still plans on being involved with the event moving forward. “I’ve always looked at the banquet as sort of a large class reunion. I’m very happy about the ones who keep coming, and can come, year after year.” Her husband has a much different perspective about his wife giving up her role as banquet chairperson after two decades. “I’m just looking forward to her finally being able to sit down and eat with me,” he says with a chuckle. At its first banquet in1990, the Laurel Alumni Association awarded three $1,000
If you know of someone who has dedicated his or her life to service to others, suggest their names for this series. Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com scholarships to graduates of Laurel High School. Twenty years later, with the help of Calio and scores of other committed volunteers, more than 400 attendees will watch as the association hands out nearly 30 scholarships, some totaling several thousand dollars. “This banquet is just so good to see,” says Calio. “We’ve put in the newspaper before that this is the highlight of Laurel’s year because there are so many people who come to it that went to school together. People may even come for the first time and find out that, not only are some of their friends still alive, but they are there at the banquet. That’s really special.” Through the years, there have been happy times, there have been emotional times and there have been countless occasions that have stuck in the collective memories of organizers and attendees. A favorite tale involved Laurel alumnus, and infamous scalloped oyster connoisseur Pat Murphy, vice president of Morning Star Publications. “The ladies auxiliary knew that Pat loved scalloped oysters, so they came out of the kitchen near the end of the meal one year with this great big pan of scalloped oysters and put it right in front of him,” Calio remembers. “I thought that was pretty funny.” A tradition at the annual Laurel Alumni Association banquet is seating honored students as a group, at tables apart from their family members. It has been designed that way since its inception, and Calio doesn’t plan on it changing any time soon – at least if she has anything to say about it. “We like to let the students have their own tables; we don’t want them to sit with their mommies and daddies,” says Calio matter-of-factly. “Most of the time, parents cooperate and it works out really well. I know that they’re proud of their child, but it is their child who wins the scholarship.
Carolyn Calio has been organizing the Laurel Alumni Association’s annual scholarship awards banquet every year since 1990. May 15 will mark her 20th, and final, event as head of the association’s banquet committee.
It’s their night and we want them to have fun.” Long before she became the driving force behind the annual alumni association banquet, Calio was a student at the old Laurel High School, currently the town’s middle school. She was a freshman there when her future husband was a senior. But she never really paid much attention to the dark haired young Italian roaming the hallways, at least in those days. “It was [Charlene] Whaley who got us together; I either love her or hate her most days for doing that,” says Calio with a sly grin. “Frank and I knew each other in high school, but I had other things on the fire then.” After having two children and losing her husband suddenly in a car accident, Carolyn Calio eventually went to work for her brother in his Laurel-based dental practice. Several years later, she met Frank Calio and eventually left her job as a dental assistant. “After I married Frank [in 1969], he said that I didn’t have to work anymore. But that was a big joke,” Calio says with a chuckle. “I just went from [working
on] the teeth to [working on] the feet at Frank’s shoe store.” In the late 1980s, Calio attended the first meeting of the soon-to-be Laurel Alumni Association, an organization that was the brainchild of Laurel High School graduate Brad Spicer. Ralph Gootee, the association’s first president, soon asked her to chair the banquet committee. The rest, as they say, is history. “We just wanted to have a social event once per year where we could present scholarships to worthy graduating seniors,” she says today. “We had cash donations, fundraisers and things like that to raise money.” Twenty years later, even through the country’s worst economic downtown since the Great Depression, the Laurel Alumni Association continues to thrive and continues to follow through with its original mission. Dues are today the same as they’ve been since day one – a staggering $5 a year. This year, there will even be a member representing the class of 1930 at the annual banquet – Marie Johnson Waller’s unofficial 80th class reunion. Continued to page nine

want to do my best to try and help them.” Through her involvement in local worthwhile causes and organizations, Calio remains firmly implanted in Laurel – it is “her town” after all. She has no patience for people who move in and try to change things in “Bulldog Country.” “I have a real problem with people who come in here, say how wonderful things are, and then want to turn around and change everything,” she says. “If it’s so wonderful, then why change it?” Frank and Carolyn Calio have five children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. They continue to be integral parts of the Laurel community, as they have been for more than a half a century. These clinics are a chance to get some real hands-on practice.

“We’re very happy for people who can come in from year to year, especially since we don’t know how many more years they’re going to be able to make it here,” says Calio. “It’s just so good to see.” In addition to her role with the alumni association, Calio remains heavily involved with planning her own class reunion every five years and sits on the board of directors for the Western Sussex Boys & Girls Club. Once a month, the board of the club’s Laurel chapter meets at the Calio home near Records Pond for a home cooked breakfast – all prepared by Calio herself. “There are a lot of kids out there who need the Boys & Girls Club, kids who just don’t have the supervision,” she says. “I just

MORNING STAR • MAy 6 - 12, 2010
Local author promotes the legacy of Class D baseball By Tony E. Windsor
It has long been hailed as “America’s past time,” and baseball fans are still among some of the more dedicated sports enthusiasts. There are those who simply enjoy the competitive nature of the game; choosing to give loyal support each season to their favorite team. Then there are baseball fans who are passionate to the point that it becomes a mission to not only enjoy the sport in its present form, but also become immersed in its history; this describes Seaford native, Mike Lambert. Over the years, Lambert has become committed to promoting baseball, but his mission is focused around protecting the legacy of baseball’s impact on the eastern shore of Delmarva. It was baseball in its purest form; before national media coverage of the sport brought games into America’s living room. It was called “Class D” baseball and Lambert is a foremost authority on its local history. Lambert has one of the most extensive collections of Eastern Shore League (ESHL) memorabilia to be found anywhere. His knowledge of the game as it impacted the region from 1922 to 1949 is staggering. When talking about the ESHL, Lambert literally lights up. He calls his passion for the subject, “my mistress.” He talks about ESHL players like Jimmie Foxx, Frank “Homerun” Baker, Mickey Cochrane and future Orioles and White Sox manager, Paul Richards, as if they were personal friends. Lambert has taken his passion to a higher level and has recently authored a book, “Eastern Shore League, Images of Baseball.” The book, released on April 5, is published by Arcadia Publishing, a national publisher of local and regional history books. The book is 128 pages packed full of
Replacement restricts lanes
The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that Highway Safety Systems, Inc., will continue to replace guardrails across Sussex County. During the replacement, motorists will encounter intermittent lane restrictions through Friday, May 14, pending weather. The work schedule will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Work will take place at the following locations: • Kent Avenue from Double Bridges Road to Jefferson Bridge Road, Ocean View • Bethany Road from Main Street to Polly Branch Road, Selbyville • Frankford School Road from Shockley Town Road to Thatcher Street, Frankford • Concord Road from Route 13 to Bethel Concord Road, Blades • Cods Road from 13 Curves Road to Fowlers Beach Road, Milford Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling throughout these locations and expect lane shifts. Real-time traffic information and construction project updates are available online at www.deldot.gov, or tune to WTMC 1380 AM.
vintage, never before seen photos from private collections, including those of Lambert and his fellow ESHL collector, Donnie Davidson of Cambridge, Md. Lambert said he and Davidson will oftentimes find themselves bidding against each other when vying for a piece of ESHL memorabilia. In his book, Lambert explains what the goal is with his newest venture. “Having collected and studied this glorious baseball league for several decades, I am committed to teaching its history at every opportunity,” he writes. “By reading the story behind these extraordinary artifacts and studying the interesting facts of the ESHL, you will not only learn about the Eastern Shore League, but you will also understand how minor-league baseball operated from the 1920s through the 1940s.” Inside the pages of the book are rare graphics, including tickets, game programs, contracts, stock certificates, balls, bats, personal player letters and schedules. One such photo shows the first paycheck received by Lambert’s friend and former ESHL league player, Robert “Ducky” Detweiler, from the Federalsburg [Md.] A’s. The check for $37.12 was part of the $75 per month paid to him by the Federalsburg Athletic Association for the 1939 season. In the book there are also photos and information about the “Seaford Eagles,” a team that was part of the ESHL from 1946 to 1949. In 1947, the Seaford Eagles was an affiliate of the New York Giants. In that same year, the Eagles won the ESHL championship, defeating the pennantwinning Cambridge team in a seven-game playoff. Lambert’s book chronicles the history of ESHL teams that played on home fields including Seaford, Dover, Milford and Laurel in Delaware; Crisfield, Cambridge, Salisbury, Easton and Pocomoke City in Maryland; and Parksley and Northampton in Virginia. As part of the 100th anniversary celebration of Minor League Baseball in 2001, Bill Weiss and Marshall Wright, two veteran chroniclers of minor league baseball, researched and rated the “Top 100” Minor League teams of the century. In the listing among such historic Triple-A minor league teams as the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Angels, Milwaukee Brewers and the Indianapolis Indians, was the Eastern Shore League’s Salisbury Indians, who were ranked in the number eight spot.
“Amidst the Triple-A colossi occupying the upper echelons of Minor League Baseball’s Top 100 list, one Class D club managed to slip into the top group. Playing in a small town in Maryland, this team seemingly performed the impossible in a truly singular campaign, Weiss and Marshall said on the website, MiLB.com. In 1937, under the management of ESHL icon, D’Arcy Raymond “Jake” Flowers, the team managed to go from a 0-26 record to capture the pennant. Weiss and Wright wrote, “Salisbury’s achievement in 1937 is believed to be unique. Their comeback from a 0-26 record to capture the pennant is a worthy enough achievement in itself. However, when you include Salisbury’s 21 missing wins into their record, the Indians’ winning percentage of .833 stands supreme, never equaled by any 20th century full-season minor league team.” On Sept. 1, more than 3,000 Salisbury fans turned out to honor the “wonder team,” as The Sporting News called the Indians. Washington owner Clark Griffith was the guest of honor. Engraved 17-jewel wristwatches were presented to all the players, Flowers and the three front office officials. In addition, Flowers received an automobile. Even the bus driver, the scoreboard operator and the batboy received gifts. The Indians responded by trouncing Pocomoke City 10-2 (Weiss, B. & Wright, M. 2001). In his book, Lambert writes extensively about Jake Flowers and also has photographs including newspaper clippings from the 1937 Indian’s pennant-winning season and a baseball signed by not only the entire Salisbury Indians team, but by Flowers, the club’s owner and two league presidents. Lambert said it is his love of the ESHL history and desire to promote its legacy to people who may know little about it that drives his passion for the subject. “I’m not in it for the money,” he said. “I just want to help keep this league and its players from being forgotten.” Lynn Beahm, publicity manager for Arcadia Publishing, said Lambert’s book is “doing extremely well” and is already in a second printing. “Within a couple of weeks of being released we started seeing the book stock dwindling and realized we would need to do a second printing,” she said. “It is rare that a book has a second printing in such a short period of time, if at

From left are Matt Taylor, Jacqueline Torkelson, Lamar Meekins and Jessica Harris with their awards from the recent TSA competition.
Seaford High School students compete in technology event Seaford High School students returned from the state Technology Student Association (TSA) competition with several honors and awards. The competition was held at the Harrington Fair Grounds on April 23. TSA is the only student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of students interested in technology. TSA members learn through competitive events and leadership opportunities. With projects that involve designing dragsters, structural designs to career exploration, students learn from a variety of diverse activities. Lamar Meekins, a returning senior who placed ninth in the nation last year, continued to dominate the dragster design chal-
lenge by taking first prize. Jessica Harris, freshman, followed Lamar by taking third place. Both Harris and Meekins teamed up to win the structural engineering challenge. Harris placed in two other events: first in model rocketry and third in transportation modeling. Shaun Repp wrote a report and resume for career comparison and placed second. Jacqueline Torkelson and Matt Taylor placed third in a video completion. Torkelson also placed third in promotional graphics while Taylor placed second in imaging technology. The Seaford TSA would like to thank Tower Signs and Seaford Machine Works for their technical support.
BIE VISIT - Frederick Douglass Elementary School fifth graders recently had a visit from the Delaware Business, Industry, Education Alliance. Math, science and technology are vital to our students’ education and future, yet many students don’t realize how important these subjects are to almost any career path. This interactive two hour program used a “mystery object” as a conversation starter. Students gathered at each table for a 10 minute interval before rotating to another station. Volunteers used this time to explain their own career while stressing the importance of math, science or technology. Students were able to see a diverse group of careers.

Phillis Wheatley students named to third marking period honor roll
Jessica Bennett of Seaford (right) receives congratulations from James H. Groves Adult High School Principal Terri Corder after being inducted into the OAASIS Hall of Fame.
Graduate inducted into OAASIS The Sussex Tech Adult Division announces that one of its graduates, Jessica Bennett of Seaford, has been named to the OAASIS Hall of Fame. Jessica is a 2000 graduate of the James H. Groves Adult High School. The Organization of Adult Alumni and Students in Service is an organization composed of alumni and students from adult education programs throughout the State of Delaware. Its mission is to link students and alumni to individuals and organizations involved in adult and community education. Bennett’s natural ability to encourage others and make them feel at ease led to her becoming the Sussex Tech Groves OASSIS worker following her graduation. According to Principal Terri Corder, staff at the Sussex Center relied on Jessica to relate to students to get them to put forth their best effort. Her sense of humor could always get a smile from even the most discouraged student.
Bennett held this position for seven years, while working and raising two sons, before becoming an instructional paraprofessional at the Positive Outcomes Charter School in Camden. She now holds an administrative support position at the charter school. In 2005, Bennett was a keynote speaker at the statewide OAASIS Student Conference. She bravely shared her educational journey, including the obstacles she has had to overcome. At the end of sharing her story, an audience of more than 200 people gave her a standing ovation. Also at the Second Joint Summit of the Delaware Association for Adult and Community Education held on March 27, several James H. Groves students received awards as 2010 OAASIS Outstanding Students. Honorees included Lisa M. Henderson of Millsboro, Tradina Snead of Bridgeville, Elena Vasquez of Seaford and Juan Carlos Villacorta of Millsboro.
LEGISLATORS HOST EDUCATORS - Staff and student representatives from Sussex Tech Adult Education were invited to join other statewide adult educators in participating in the annual Legislative Luncheon in Dover on March 25. The purpose of the gathering was to provide a casual atmosphere where students and state legislators could converse about the immediate and long-term value of adult education in Delaware. Attending the luncheon were, from left: Javier Limon Aguilera of Millsboro, Kristina Hudson of Seaford, Emily Hatch of Milton and Terrance Nock of Bridgeville. In back are Terri Corder of Milford, principal of the James H. Groves Adult High School, and Dr. John Kreitzer of Lewes, director of Sussex Tech Adult Education.

The ABC Child Development Center in Federalsburg, Md., celebrated its 40th year of service to the community on March 6. The celebration honored community leaders whose lifelong commitment has contributed to the success of the center. The daycare center is housed in the former Federalsburg Elementary School building located on Laurel Grove Road in Federalsburg. Men For Change, a local ministry outreach and Ms. Cynthia Seymore, of Federalsburg, co-sponsored the event. Seymore is the granddaughter of the late Gertrude Johnson, who was one of the founders, and the first director of the daycare center. The civic league committee was founded in 1960 by a group of concerned citizens, including Johnson, to better address the issues facing the community. These efforts led to the purchase of the former Federalsburg Elementary School building and property from the Caroline County Board of Education.
Special honorees received certificates of appreciation for their service: Helene and Herbert Griffin (40 years); Mary West, second director; Martha Stanley, assistant manager; and Pearl Lofland, financial manager. Men For Change honored the late poet Henry Wilson, one of their cherished members, with a candlelight memorial. Proceeds from fundraising and community donations went to support the daycare center. A check for $1,500 was presented to the center for payment to Tri-Gas & Oil Company.

Health briefs NMH celebrates occupational therapy April was Occupational Therapy Month and the theme was “Living Life to Its Fullest.” Health professionals involved in occupational therapy programs throughout the United States sponsored activities to help people learn about occupational therapy. Occupational therapy (OT) helps people regain their strength and begin performing basic daily living activities independently again. OT focuses on many areas during a person’s rehabilitation phase, including range of motion and strength of the upper body, fine motor, sensation, visual abilities, and cognitive or mental capabilities that would enable someone to function safely in their home. Occupational therapy can work with a patient in a wide variety of settings, such as hospital care, a rehabilitation facility, home care, or long-term care. An individual in long-term care may require OT for upper body positioning, splinting or even passive range of motion. The occupational therapy staff at Nanticoke Memorial hospital and the Mears Outpatient Center strive to tailor all of their treatments to the very specific needs of each of their patients. For more information, contact Nanticoke Memorial Hospital at 629-6611, ext. 5108 or the Mears Outpatient Campus at 629-6224, ext. 8613.

Arguing wastes time and energy By Dr. Anthony Policastro People spend a lot of time arguing about things. If we stop and think about it, much of that time is not worth the effort. The gist of most arguments is the expectation that one person is right and the other is wrong. Even in the best of circumstances one person is not going to be right 100% of the time. That means that sometimes when you argue about something, you are wrong. One question then to ask when you are having an argument is whether it really matters if one person is right and the other is wrong. In most circumstances the world will not end if one person is correct and the other is not. So, why bother arguing about something that has no real long term impact? Another issue is the type of arguments that people tend to have. Most of them are about trivial things. The thing that begins the argument is frequently not worth arguing about. A classic is the issue of leaving the toilet seat up or down. In the overall scheme of things, is it really a serious issue? Is it really worth arguing over? One of the things I frequently tell newly married couples is to spend some time looking at their first few arguments. When they take their wedding vows, they are only thinking about each other. If I were to ask them on their wedding day if they would have an argument over a toilet seat, they would think I was crazy. The third thing that frequently occurs in arguments is transitioning from the original issue to an unrelated issue. The classic example of this is the adolescent who wants to go somewhere and the parents say “no.” It goes from being an issue about a particular item to a generalization such as “you never let me have any fun.” There are some important lessons to be learned when there is any kind of argu-
ment. The first is that the two parties must stop and ask themselves some questions. This is the hardest part of all. When someone gets into a situation like this, it is hard to come up for air. However, that is the only way to do it. Once that is done, there are three questions that need to be asked. The first is whether it really matters who is right or who is wrong. In most circumstances even if one person is right, it matters very little in the overall scheme of things. So why argue? The second question is whether the issue is really an important one. In most cases it is not. So why argue? The third question is whether the argument is about the issue that started it all or has it transitioned to something else? If it has transitioned, then it makes sense to go back to the original issue. Once you do that, you will find that the first two questions then apply. The result will still be the same. Why argue?

MORNING STAR • MAY 6 - 12, 2010
Nanticoke celebrates Hospital Week, Nursing Home Week
National Hospital Week is the nation’s largest health care celebration and is a tradition that dates back to 1921. National Nursing Home Week began in 1967 to celebrate the lives of residents and to recognize the quality of care provided in America’s nursing and rehabilitation facilities. Over the decades, both nationally celebrated weeks have helped revolutionize the public view of hospitals and home
health facilities. This year’s Hospital Week theme is “Health, Hope & Healing”. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community. This year’s Nursing Home Week theme is “Enriching Every Day”. This year’s theme was selected to honor those who are
“Enriching Every Day” for others, thus adding value to life and overcoming many of the infirmities of age and disability. Today, hospitals are multidimensional facilities covering every area of specialization, with a focus on wellness and a reach that extends into the communities that built and nurtured them. America’s hospitals and nursing homes are positive, vital places
that promote health and well being. That’s the message health care facilities across the country are voicing as they celebrate National Hospital Week and National Nursing Home Week 2010. In commenting on the weeklong observances, Steven Rose, RN, MN, Nanticoke Health Services President and
CEO shared, “As we celebrate National Hospital Week and National Nursing Home Week, we thank the health care professionals and employees at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and Lifecare at Lofland Park. We are very fortunate to have dedicated employees who put our patients and our community first. Thank you.”
National Nurse’s Week at Nanticoke
The work of America’s 3.1 million registered nurses to save lives and to maintain the health of millions of individuals is the focus of this year’s National Nurses Week, celebrated annually throughout the United States. Nanticoke Health Services is celebrating National Nurses Week May 10th – 14th. This year, Nanticoke Health Services has selected “Nurses: Our Passion Is Our Profession” as the theme for 2010. Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which registered nurses, the largest health care profession, are working to improve health care. From bedside nursing in hospitals and long-term care facilities to the halls of research institutions, state legislatures, and Congress, the depth and breadth of the nursing profession is meeting the expanding health care needs of American society. Nanticoke Health Services salutes all those in the nursing profession and especially recognizes and thanks those nurses caring for the residents of Sussex County. Nanticoke Health Services features a full-service community hospital and an award-winning, long-term care facility. The hospital has emergency services ranked #1 in Delaware for heart emergencies, a comprehensive cancer center, a Nationally Accredited Stroke Center and Nationally Accredited Sleep Center, the only Delaware health care facility to have an Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation program certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, and a growing physician network that includes 37 different specialties. For more information, call 629-6611 or visit nanticoke.org.

Foot care for diabetics Health symposium held
An average of 235 amputations a day are performed in the United States on patients with diabetes. Each year one in 20 people with diabetes will develop a foot ulcer which may result in chronic non-healing wounds and, in extreme cases, lead to amputation. Tragically, those cases are hardly isolated: on average a staggering 235 amputations a day are performed in the United States on patients with diabetes. “Most people with diabetes know the importance of checking blood sugar levels while the importance of daily foot exams is underemphasized, even though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that comprehensive foot care programs can reduce diabetes-related amputation rates by 45 to 85 percent,” says Katherine J. Rowland, chief clinical officer for the National Healing Corporation. The local experts at Nanticoke Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, a National Healing Corporation Wound Healing Center, recommend these foot care tips: • Don’t count on foot pain to alert you to problems since diabetes can cause changes in the skin on the feet as well as nerve damage, which can impair sensation of feeling. Visually inspect your feet and between your toes for blisters, cuts, red spots and swelling. • Avoid crossing your legs: this can cause pressure on the nerves and blood vessels, possibly causing damage. • Sit with your feet up to keep the blood flowing to them. Two or three times a day, wiggle your toes and move your ankles up and down for five minutes. • Your feet contain a million sweat glands. Always wear properly fitting socks made of cotton and wool, and change your socks and shoes twice a day. • Don’t go barefoot. Feel inside your shoes before putting them on to make sure they don’t have tears in the lining or foreign objects. • Cut toenails straight across and don’t trim them too short. Use an emery board to smooth corners of toenails or ingrown nails. • While Medicare and many health care providers will reimburse a portion or all of the cost of shoes and custom inserts prescribed by a doctor, don’t buy more than one insert at a time in case the size or shape of your foot changes. • Don’t pull loose pieces of skin off your feet. See a health care professional to have them removed. • Seek medical treatment if a leg or foot wound has not healed in 30 days or shows signs of infection such as increased
pain, redness or swelling, foul wound odor, a change in color, or amount of drainage from the wound. For more information about diabetes management and treating and preventing chronic wounds, contact Nanticoke Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center located at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, 628-8322.
Nanticoke Memorial Hospital held a successful health symposium Saturday, May 1, 2010 at the Atlanta Road Alliance Church, Seaford. The health symposium, held in partnership with Atlanta Road Alliance Church, featured more than 30 health care areas offering FREE information and education, along with FREE health screenings for cholesterol, glucose, prostate and more. In
addition, FREE blood pressure checks were offered. There was health information and interactive displays on heart risk factors, stroke awareness, summer safety, healthy eating, sleep disorders, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and much more. Over 200 individuals attended the health symposium. During the event, approximately 100 individuals had cholesterol and glucose testing completed.
During the May 1 Health Symposium, Nanticoke’s Brenda Johnson helps a young attendee look through Nanticoke’s ultraviolet light box to see if simulated germs were left behind after washing.

Neighbor interrupts burglary
Delaware State Police have arrested Brad Donaway, a 30-year-old Maryland man, after he broke into a house on Bethel Road in Millsboro and had his tire shot out by a neighbor. Donaway turned himself into troopers on Tuesday, April 27, after his car tire was shot out and he fled back to Maryland. The incident started around 11:30 a.m. when a neighbor observed activity in the house next door. The concerned neighbor called the victim to make sure no one was supposed to be home. When the homeowner said “no,” the neighbor retrieved a gun and went next door. The neighbor confronted Donaway and told him to get out of the house. Donaway then entered his vehicle and was attempting to drive off when the neighbor fired a round on the suspect’s left front tire. Donaway continued to flee and headed back to Maryland. Troopers were able to make contact with Donaway and he returned to Delaware to turn himself in. State troopers would like to remind the public not to confront any suspect during a crime, instead call 911 immediately.

Recruiter works hard to promote the National Guard By Tony E. Windsor
When students in the western Sussex area see Michael Cook around town or at school, he is offering them more than simply a chance to be a soldier. Sgt. Cook is a recruiting officer for the Delaware Army National Guard. He operates out of the 1049th Transportation Detachment located on Bridgeville Highway in Seaford. Cook, along with fellow guardsman, Sgt. Steve Rebman, is assigned to recruit young people from school districts from Farmington to Delmar. Working in “recruitment and retention,” Cook’s primary goal is to help assure that the state’s military support stays at maximum strength. The National Guard has a history that dates back to 1636 when English colonists in North America established militias to protect the citizenry from tribal attacks and foreign invaders. This same militia was responsible for winning the Revolutionary War. In 1776 the Constitution provided a means for Congress to allow states to arm, train and discipline their militia. Each state was given the power to appoint officers and train the militia. In 1825 the New York militia gave themselves the name “National Guard.” In 1916 all state militias formally adopted the term as the name of their military units. Cook explains that the Army National Guard operates at the discretion of the Governor of the state. In time of war, or other emergency, the President of the United States can request from the Governor to utilize the state’s National Guard. Guard units will then take their deployment orders from the United States military. The National Guard has been involved in many world theaters of operation, including most recently Iraq and Afghanistan. In the past 20 years such natural emergencies and military operations include: the invasion of Iraq in 1991; the volcanic eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington State in 1980; NATO peacekeepers in the former Yugoslavia and Macedonia during the Peace Treaty of 1996; the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York in 2001; Iraq and Afghanistan in 2002; and in 2005 during Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana.

Cook, a 20-year veteran of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, decided to take some time off from his regular job and serve as a recruitment officer with the National Guard. A native of Lewes, he graduated from Cape Henlopen High School in 1986 and joined the Army Reserves where he was a Military Police Officer (MPO). His new job requires a very flexible schedule and an extreme commitment to his message. Talking to Cook there is no doubt that he believes strongly in the career he is recommending to high school students. At a time when the economy is still struggling and jobs are less than plentiful, Cook feels confident that the National Guard is a great option. He feels the opportunities to be trained in a job skill and receive college financial support are two great reasons to take advantage of the National Guard. “The Guard provides a great opportunity to train to be a soldier, but do it while still at home,” he said. “The National Guard will pay you while you are going through basic training and job training. There are also opportunities to get money to obtain a college degree and get paid while you do it. There are opportunities with the Guard that are just too good to resist.” Cook himself has been educated through the support of the military. He has obtained a bachelor’s degree and is now working on his master’s degree with plans to become a teacher; all through the financial support of the Army Reserves and the National Guard. Cook said being a recruiter is more than simply promoting the National Guard as a career choice. It is a job that requires full commitment to the recruits that enlist. “You have to have good time management skills as a recruiter,” he said. “I need to meet with recruits as their schedule allows. It can involve late nights, weekends, whenever they have the time to meet with me.” He likens his job to that of a counselor. He works with the recruit from the point of enlistment throughout the entire process of becoming a soldier. He will personally take the recruit to Fort Meade in Baltimore where physicals are given and the soldiers are sworn in. He will also work with the soldier to help them get settled in their assigned unit and stays in contact to help the soldier learn how best to be promoted through the ranks of service.

Michael Cook, a recruiting officer for the Delaware Army National Guard, strongly believes in the National Guard and what it has to offer.
Cook sets up National Guard promotional displays in schools in the Woodbridge, Seaford, Laurel and Delmar school districts. He also visits schools during lunch and answers questions that students may have about the National Guard. He said students can access, www.1800-GO-GUARD.com, or call 1-800-GOGUARD to learn about the benefits of being in the National Guard. He also said
they can call him direct at 854-7637 (office) or 354-3439 (cell). “The National Guard is a product I believe in,” he said. “That is why I am a recruitment officer. There is no way I could be where I am today without the military. This is a great opportunity for young people.” Cook resides in Bridgeville with his wife and two children.

Seaford varsity boys’ tennis team loses to Caesar Rodney By Lynn Schofer
Seaford High School boys’ tennis coach Phil Burtelle said Monday’s match with Caesar Rodney was very important and the team needed the win. Unfortunately, the Blue Jays fell to CR, 3-2, giving the team their second loss of the season. “They just are not on top of their game, the boys are much better than they are playing today,” Burtelle said during Monday’s match. Tim Halter was hitting the ball hard and seemed at times to be in control of the match but little mistakes were costly and he fell 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. The first doubles team Corey Darden and Tyrek Camper fell in two straight sets, 7-5, 6-4. It would be safe to say that Seaford lost focus on Monday and CR took advantage of Seaford’s mistakes. A solid performance by Phillip DeMott gave Seaford one of the match wins. DeMott lost the first set, regained his composure on the court and won the next two sets 6-4, 6-4. Dustin Venables and Zak Parks won their first set 6-4 and fell victim in the second set, 6-0. The doubles team came back in the third set, 6-4, to win the match. Seaford’s overall record is 9-2. As the Blue Jays go into the final two matches of the season and prepare for tournament play they hope to regain the focus and bring their ”A” game to the courts.

Seaford High School has been home to an after school bowling club for four years now, and the talent has risen to the top this year. Under advisor Dawn Cherrix, 12 high school and five middle school students have enjoyed the sport of bowling for the past three months with the cooperation of the Seaford Bowling Lanes and its owners Gerald and Paulette Sammons, staunch supporters of a high school bowling program. Last year a Lower Delaware High School Bowling Tournament was held for the first time, and Seaford High had one three-member team participate. This year the Second Annual High School Bowling Tournament was again held at Millsboro Lanes on February 27, and Seaford sent two teams. Team one consisted of Katie Hickey, Tyrek Camper, and Michael Cherrix; team two was made up of Joey Mitchell, Charles Michel, and Aaron Robinson. Both teams represented Seaford High School proudly. Katie Hickey bowled a 255, 201, and 224 for a total of 680 scratch; first year bowler Tyrek Camper bowled a 109, 145, and 144 for a total of 398 scratch; and Michael Cherrix rolled a 206, 169, and 203 for a total of 578 scratch. Their team total was 1656; and with a handicap of 420, their final team score was 2076. This team took first place in the tournament and brought home a large trophy for Seaford High. Also each member will receive an individual trophy. Hickey was the outstanding bowler for the day, having both the high game and series for both men and women. The officers for the club are: president: Michael Cherrix; vice president: Aaron Robinson; secretary: Adrienne Gaydos; and treasurer: Katie Hickey.

Mother’s Day recipe for a long and healthy life By Lynn R. Parks
argaret Lord Cade’s mother, Helena Lord, died as a young woman, leaving two small children to be cared for by her husband, Joseph Jr. The newly-widowed father was apparently worried that Margaret, who was 3, was sickly, because he started giving her vitamins and raw eggs stirred up in milk. “I was puny as a little girl,” says Cade. “But my father made me healthy. I have taken vitamins ever since.” Cade, who grew up in the Seaford area and lives with her husband, Edwin F. Cade Sr., in Delmar, Del., will be 84 in June. She does all of her own housework and regularly visits the YWCA in Salisbury, where she takes water aerobics. On Sunday, Mother’s Day, she’s not sure what she’ll be doing. She knows she doesn’t want to cook, so dinner out seems probable. And it’s also probable that she’ll gather with some members of her family, including maybe her great-great grandchildren. Cade is the matriarch of a family that extends for five generations. Recently, she and her daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter and great-great-granddaughter gathered for a family photo. “It feels pretty good to have such a family,” says Cade. “The Lord has blessed me to live this long. And I’ve got a very nice family. They are happy, loving and kind and always good to me.” “My grandmother is a very strong person,” says Cade’s granddaughter, Lisa
Miller, 44, of Seaford. “And she is the person who holds us all together. I feel very blessed to have so many generations in our family that we can all turn to for support and guidance.” Cade was born in June 1926. Her father owned and operated the Rip Van Winkle restaurant on alternate U.S. 13. Cade attended Seaford schools through the 11th grade, when she dropped out to go to work at the DuPont Co.’s nylon plant near Seaford. She worked there for 18 months, then started her own beautician shop. The Lisa Kay Beauty Salon was located at the corner of Tharp Road and U.S. 13, where the Exxon station now stands. Cade lived in Seaford for 69 years. Fourteen years ago, she and her husband moved to Delmar to be closer to their two children, Edwin Jr. “Eddie,” Delmar, Md., and Kay Curry, 64, who lives in Salisbury and who is Miller’s mother. Eddie has two children. His daughter, Melissa Ashley, Spencer, Va., has two young sons, Xavier and Zander, and his son, Edwin III, Salisbury, has two teenage stepchildren, Emily McIntyre and Jake McIntyre. Miller, 44, who is an only child, lives in Seaford. She has two children, Kristopher Bell and Ericca Petoney, both of Seaford. Ericca, 24, has two children, a son, Aidan Bell, 5, and a daughter, Addison Petoney, 3. Addison represents the fifth generation in the family photograph. While all of the adults in the picture are dressed in black, she is wearing pink. One small hand holds onto her great-great-grandmother’s sleeve.
Addison Petoney, 3, in the front of the photo, is the youngest member of this family, which spans five generations.

that you can with your life. And always love the Lord. “That is a good recipe for a good life,” she adds. “It has always taken care of me.”
Cade has simple advice for young mothers of today. “Be happy,” she says. “Being happy is the best medicine for whatever’s wrong. Be good. Do the best

Beware of email hoaxes and don’t pass them on Lawson is in fact just who the e-mail said he is, however he did not send the e-mail
Everyone who owns a computer and an e-mail address most likely receives unsolicited electronic mail. It may be from overzealous marketers and business owners, or perhaps a chain letter warning of health dangers if you break the chain, or a blessing from God if you comply and send the e-mail to multiple friends. Also in the mix are stories appearing to be genuine, issuing an urgent warning to get the posting to as many people as possible to avoid falling into a dangerous life-threatening snare. There have
been warnings of gang related initiation shootings being carried out arbitrarily at the neighborhood Wal-Mart and individuals hiding under store clothing counters slashing the ankles of innocent shoppers as they walk by. There have been reports of business travelers to major cities who have fallen asleep in their motel rooms and awaken to find themselves in bathtubs filled with ice cubes and missing one of their kidneys; reportedly harvested by gangs trafficking in illegal body parts. All of these have one thing in common, they are untrue and nothing more than myths and online hoaxes. Such is the case with a more recent hoax that is making its way over the electronic mail lines of the Intranet. This involves an urgent plea to take heed of a new crime resource known as “Burandango.” The e-mail, which has been
Delaware Technical & Community College, Jack F. Owens Campus will hold its 42nd annual Commencement on Tuesday, May 11, at 6:30 p.m. on the east lawn of the William A. Carter Partnership Center. The speaker will be John A. Martin, vice president and general manager of PATS Aircraft Systems, located in the Sussex County Airpark in Georgetown. An experienced aviation executive, Martin has more than 30 years in the commercial aviation business, previously employed with such companies as Spirit Aerosystems, Aviation Management Systems, and Goodrich Corporation. Ushered seating for commencement will begin at 5 p.m., and a blue ticket is required for all guests sitting under the tent.
Seats cannot be reserved, and ticket holder seats cannot be guaranteed after 6 p.m. Guests without tickets may sit or stand outside the tent or view the ceremony via live television in room 529 in the Carter Partnership Center. The commencement ceremony will be held rain or shine. In case of severe weather, the decision to implement separate indoor commencement ceremonies will be made by 2:30 p.m. The indoor commencement ceremony information will be announced on local radio and television stations or attendees may call the campus Hot Line at 302-856-5555. Receptions for the graduates, their families and friends will be held immediately after Commencement.

Delaware Tech, Owens Campus graduation schedule for May 11
Brauncy Lee Jenkins Jr. graduates from Southern Wesleyan University Mr. and Mrs. Brauncy Jenkins are pleased to announce the graduation of their son, Brauncy Lee Jenkins Jr., from Southern Wesleyan Brauncy Lee University in Jenkins Jr. Central South Carolina on May 6, 2010. He earned his B.A. degree in business administration from the school of business with a concentration in marketing.
Jenkins graduated from Seaford Senior High School in 2005. In addition to his studies, he has played two years of collegiate baseball for Clark University in Atlanta Georgia. In his freshman year he became rookie of the year in the SIAC athletic conference at Clark. Jenkins has been in several leadership positions while attending Southern Wesleyan. He has also earned a National Golden Glove Award in 2009 for his defensive skills in center field for Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina.
received in mass locally, starts with a hook that immediately creates a sense of urgency. It states, People are R E A L L Y crazy! If you are a female, take heed! If you are male and have a significant female in your life who you care about, whether it’s your wife, your girlfriend, your daughter, your sister, your niece, your cousin, your next door neighbor; whomever ... pass this along! Always, “Better safe than sorry!” The e-mail goes on to tell about a woman who is pumping gas at a service station and is approached by a man offering his services as a housepainter. The woman says she does not need a painter, but the stranger gives her a business card anyway. The woman takes the card and gets back into her car and drives off. A short time later she detects a strong odor and begins to feel faint. She notices that the man and a colleague are following her vehicle. Realizing that the odor is coming from the same hand that she accepted the business card with, she becomes fearful that she is indeed the victim of a criminal ploy. She pulls into a neighborhood driveway and begins honking her horn. The men following her hastily drive away. This of course avoids any chance that
there may have been a police incident to report giving this story any concrete credibility. In lieu of this, the e-mail does have an actual law enforcement officer as the individual who has issued this urgent warning about what is called “Burundanga,” which is a drug that is allegedly “four times stronger than a date rape drug and transferrable on simple cards.” In this case, the sender of the e-mail is identified as Detective Michael Lawson of the Wilmington Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division. Lawson is in fact just who the e-mail said he is, however he did not send the e-mail. On Friday afternoon, April 23, Lawson responded to a call about the veracity of the e-mail. “This email is a hoax and was not disseminated by me,” he said. “This has been circulating for the past three weeks. Please reply to the person that sent it to you and let them know this email is false.” Lawson also made a suggestion that may very well be the first course of action anyone should take before reacting to e-mails which cause immediate alarm and that is to visit the website, www.snopes.com. Snopes. com was started in 1996 by David and Barbara Mikkelson as an “online encyclopedia of myths
and urban legends, building off the couple’s hobby of studying urban legends.” After the attacks of 9-11, conspiracy theorists used the e-mail as a source to promote anti-government sentiments and Snopes.com became a clearinghouse for skeptics seeking to separate reality from hoaxes. In the case of the Burundanga scare, Snopes.com calls it “false.” The site says the hoax dates back as far as May 2008. While the drug burundanga, which contains the alkaloids scopolamine and atropine, is actually used for treatment of such things as Parkinson’s disease, prevention of motion sickness and as a sedative, Snopes.com says the drug must be ingested and is odorless and cannot be transferred through simple exposure to the skin. While the drug burandanga is used illegally as a date rape drug in mainly Columbia, Snopes.com said research indicates no use of the drug in the United States. So, as electronic mail seems to be one of the ever-growing ways to reach friends, family and potential masses of prospective business clients, when it comes to questionable communications like “burundanga on business cards,” when in doubt, check it out. Snopes.com is a good place to start.

Family recovering from explosion in their home Two funds to help the family are established By Carol Kinsley Jason Bradford Jr., who just turned 7, thinks he is a superhero because when his home on Dogwood Lane in Laurel exploded last week, sending all his family members flying, he was able to climb out of the rubble by himself. Unfortunately, when the house was destroyed, so were all of his birthday presents — along with everything else the family owned, including one vehicle which had been parked just outside. The family had just finished moving in. Mercifully, his father, mother and two younger brothers also survived, although with injuries. His father, Jason Bradford, a roofer by trade and family tradition, remains in Christiana Hospital with severe orthopedic injuries following surgery to his spine. His brothers, Austin, 4, and Logan, 2, both have broken limbs and are in lower body casts. Their mother, Heather Bennett, released after two days in the Burn Center at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, is just thankful they are all alive. A family spokesman said they are overwhelmed with the support already received from family,
neighbors and community. The community is pitching in to help with prayers and more. Two funds have been established. One is at PNC Bank at 1200 West Stein Highway in Seaford. Checks can be made payable to “Help the Bradford Family.” The other is the “Bennett Assistance Fund,” c/o Wilmington Trust Company, Att: Nancy West, 509 West Stein Highway, also in Seaford. Either bank will accept donations at any of its locations. All of the money will go directly to the family. There is also a Web site, www.helpthebradfordfamily. com, with links to a Facebook account where dialogue is posted. A friend of the family is working on facilitating donations by PayPal upon request of some would-be donors. Gail Bradford, Jason’s sister, has opened her home at 10929 East Fourth St. in Laurel for anyone who wants to provide donations of clothing or other material goods. She said the boys wear sizes 6, 4 and 3. Their petite mother wears pants size 0 and shirts size small. Jason needs pants size 36 waist, 34 length, and 2X shirts. Most of all, the family is asking for everyone’s prayers for the recovery of Jason, Heather and the children.
and our own senator Tom Carper, who have supported it. “Oil rigs today generally don’t cause spills,” President Obama said in early April during a speech in Charlotte, N.C. “They are technologically very advanced.” How wrong he was. There simply isn’t enough oil off our coasts to justify this kind of environmental and social disaster. In total, the United States, coastal areas included, has only three percent of the world’s oil reserves. We cannot drill our way out of the energy crisis. And after politicians have united in their opposition to offshore drilling — see what an optimist I am? — this is what I hope happens: People the world over come to the realization that our addiction to oil is killing the planet on which we depend for
life and turn to other sources of energy to power our lives. The dangerous and environmentally-risky processes of harvesting fossil fuels, coal as well as oil, from the Earth are only the beginning of the problems with using them. To use the fuels, we have to burn them, a process that releases pollutants into the air, including carbon dioxide, a major player in climate change. And climate change, something that 97 percent of the world’s climate scientists agree is happening and is manmade, is no joke. We are already seeing its ramifications: increased sea levels, disrupted weather patterns, tropical diseases breaking out in Oregon, flowering plants blooming before the migrating species that depend on them for sustenance arrive. “The State of the Birds: 2010 Report on Cli-
mate Change,” just released by the Department of the Interior, says that nearly a third of the nation’s 800 bird species are endangered, threatened or in significant decline. Already dealing with habitat loss, invasive species and pesticides, they are “facing a new threat — climate change — that could dramatically alter their habitat and food supply and push many toward extinction,” said Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. We have unleashed the monster. But we can rein it in again. We must summon the will to curb our energy consumption. And we must work hard to develop sources for that energy other than fossil fuels. I have hope that in the end, we will do what’s right. We simply cannot be as selfish and greedy as all that oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico would indicate.

where the water fountain was and the four of us sat on the edge. Looking around we could see what appeared to be people in each of the stores bent down among the aisles of clothing, electronics and whatever else was being peddled. These people moved quickly so it was difficult to see what they were doing. The one thing we did quickly realize was that we were definitely alone. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the familiar shape of a dog. It was huge German shepherd dog. I saw it attached to the end of a leash, sniffing under a counter in the McCrory’s store. I followed the dog’s leash back to a hand. The hand was attached to a rather rugged looking state trooper. It seems that we had walked into the mall during a bomb threat. Police officers were everywhere, searching for potential explosive devices and there we sat like mice in a garden salad. Needless to say, we left the mall. The ride home turned out to be what I will always consider one of the worst days of my life. Dennis picked up a couple of packs of “fine” cigars on the way back to Marion Station. It was the four of us in Dennis’ yellow Rambler, a car just a few inches bigger than Barbie’s Pink Camaro. We all lit up and began puffing. Seeking to appear “cool” I sucked on my cigar like an Oreck vacuum cleaner on a bowling ball. By the time we got to Princess Anne, we couldn’t see one another inside the car
Laurel Council supports ‘Pride in Gas Lines Bloom’ and special worship event By Tony E. Windsor
The Town of Laurel is once more gearing up for what has become one of the Mayor’s favorite local events. During a recent Mayor and Council meeting, Mayor John Shwed signed a town proclamation naming Saturday, May 22 as “Laurel Pride in Bloom Month.” Now in its fourth year, the event is showcased with a special “Strawberry Festival” held at St. Phillip’s Episcopal Church on Central Avenue. Shwed said the day will start with a breakfast, also served at St. Phillips, and will include lunch, crafts and strawberries. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tours of some of Laurel’s “beautiful areas” will take place as part of the Laurel Historical Society’s Cemetery Tour. Mayor Shwed is urging all residents to use this as an opportunity to begin sprucing up for the spring and summer seasons. “This will be an opportunity for residents and merchants to spruce up their properties and flowers will be placed in the town’s parks,” he said in the proclamation. “I would encourage everyone to set out flowers on their properties. I am pleased to support this event.” Also in Council business, Pastor Andre Mollock of the Living Word Christian Center, located on Discount Land Road, addressed the Mayor and Council regard-
ing a special event request. Mollock said his church would like to receive permission from the town to hold Sunday morning worship services in the lot located at the intersection of Webbs Avenue and 7th Street, near the basketball courts. Mollock said he would like to hold the services every Sunday, weather permitting, throughout the spring and summer months. He said he sees this as a wonderful Christian outreach. “There are a lot of souls on the streets who need to receive encouragement,” he said. I am only 33, so I can relate to a lot of the young people who are out on those streets. I know what life can be like on the streets. I thank God for what he has done in my life and I want to give testimony to support the people.” Mollock said he will hold the Praise and Worship services from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include preaching, one-on-one ministering and gospel singing. “This is free to all and we want to have a good time and allow God to make a change,” he said. Mayor John Shwed said he supports the Praise and Worship services. “I think anything that uplifts the spirit of our people is a worthy cause,” he said. The Mayor and Council unanimously supported Mollock’s request to hold the Sunday morning church services.
Although gas prices remained steady for most of April, the national average price for regular grade gasoline reached a new 18-month high Friday at $2.88 a gallon. Prices began the month at $2.80 a gallon and gained 8 cents (3%) over the past 30 days. Current prices are 83 cents higher than a year ago, but still $1.23 less than the record high set in July 2008. Crude Oil Prices After trading below $82 a barrel earlier in the week, crude oil rose on Friday to its third straight monthly gain (2.5%), despite bulging U.S. oil inventories, Greece’s financial troubles, Iceland’s volcanic eruption, a lawsuit against Goldman Sachs and pending
for the smoke. I began to feel like Grant’s troops had pitched tents in my stomach. My stomach began to turn and churn like Mom’s old wringer washer. I still to this day begin to break out in a sweat and feel nauseous just thinking about it. I was in such bad shape; all I could do was pray that prayer that we all have said at least once in our life, “Oh, dear Lord, if you will just get me over this, I will never smoke another cigar.” When we pulled into the driveway at my house, my good friends opened the door and pushed me out onto the ground like bag of mail. I lay there looking up at the stars, dreading the long crawl up the front steps. It was truly misery, but you know what? I never did smoke another cigar.
Pepperbox Road pipe work
The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces the closure of Pepperbox Road between Whitesville Road and Brittingham Road in Delmar for the replacement of a crossroad pipe. The road closed on Monday, May 3 and will reopen by 3 p.m. on Friday, May 14, weather permitting. Traffic will be detoured as follows: Southbound: Pepperbox Road to Whitesville Road onto Brittingham Road and back to Pepperbox Road Northbound: Pepperbox Road to Brittingham Road onto Whitesville Road and back to Pepperbox Road. government regulation of financial markets. A massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will be a major concern perhaps months to come. The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, which, handles more than one million barrels a day of crude imports and is connected by pipeline to the biggest U.S. refining region, said it did not expect any effect on its operations. While no disruptions have occurred yet, oil traders are bracing for potential freight restrictions that could curtail crude oil imports. Local pricing On Wednesday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.799 to $2.919 a gallon. The high is seven cents higher than a week ago, the low one cent higher.

Woodbridge School Board candidates answer questions By Cathy Shufelt
Candidates for the upcoming May 11th Woodbridge Board of Education election met last week to offer insight into themselves and answer any questions members of the community might have. Incumbent Walter Gilefski along with Darryn Harris and John Poe provided answers to a number of PTO prepared questions to start “Meet the Candidates” Night. Each candidate brings a different background and life experiences to the position. Gilefski is a retired educator, having worked for the Woodbridge School District as both a teacher and principal for a total of 34 years. He has served on the Woodbridge Board of Education for the past five years. Harris is a 2004 graduate of Woodbridge High School and will graduate in May with his bachelor’s degree in education specializing in physical science from Delaware State University. Poe is semi-retired and has worked as a chef and in food service management for many years. Question: “What motivates you to be a school board member?” Gilefski: “I still feel as though I have something to offer. I was an educator here for 34 years. I have been retired since 2003, and ran for the board successfully five years ago. I don’t know a lot of stuff, but I know quite a bit about how the state system and education in general in Delaware, and the Woodbridge School District, works. I still have a desire to bring what I can bring to help the district work better.” Harris: “As a graduate of the Woodbridge School District, the one thing I took with me was civic responsibility, and during my time at Woodbridge I was afforded a lot of opportunities, and I feel that this is a way for me to give back to a community that has given me more than I could enumerate or even possibly thank them for. From my experiences since I left Woodbridge, working with teacher preparation at Delaware State University, I am not only sympathetic to the needs of the students but also to the needs of the teachers.” Poe: “Well, I am interested in budget things and finances a little bit. I was especially taken aback when I heard that only 50% of the stimulus money was going to go to school districts and the rest was going to go to the Department of Education. So, I am very interested in seeing that the majority of the money gets to the classrooms. I am also interested in improving the reputation of the district. I am selling my house now and I have had some folks tell me that they didn’t want to live in the Woodbridge School District. They didn’t want to buy my house because it’s within the Woodbridge School District, and I really couldn’t believe that. I couldn’t understand that, so I am interested to find out more about that.” Question: “Being a board member requires a lot of volunteer time, what types of volunteer activities do you currently participate in?” Harris: “Currently in the school district I do serve as a volunteer assistant marching band director at the high school. I am also involved in many activities in the community, in my church, and working with the youth at the church. I am very engaged in the community in my volunteer work. Poe: “I am involved at my church in a few men’s groups that are working to get some other men’s groups started on Del-
marva, and I am involved in the Republican Party a bit on different issues related to things going on in the community.” Gilefski: “As I said before I have been retired since 2003, and I try to get into the schools as much as I can, and attend as many of the after school activities and evening activities as I can. It was not voluntary at the time, but for eleven years in the 1980s I was Commissioner in Bridgeville, and it was a different set up. We were like most towns and not as well off as Bridgeville is currently, so the commissioners did a lot of volunteering such as cutting grass and other activities. I attend Our Lady of Lourdes in Seaford, but since I was most welcomed by the Union United Methodist Church here in Bridgeville I attend some of their activities to keep in touch with friends that made me feel at home when we first came to Bridgeville. I do have the time to do whatever is needed.” Question: “What is your opinion on the consolidation of school districts?” Poe: “I am not really in favor of the idea of three districts, one district per county, I think that’s overkill. There may be room for some consolidation, but with consolidation you lose local control and the ability to really have a place in the community. So, I am not really in favor of consolidation.” Gilefski: “Definitely opposed. I think it would be a big mistake. Big mistake. I have a little letter to the editor a month or so ago that I ended with ‘small is beautiful’ because big necessarily isn’t. Most people pushing it (consolidation) think it’s going to save money, and believe me from knowing education and truly knowing how it works, you can have one superintendent in Sussex County but you will not have just one assistant superintendent. You are going to have all kinds of assistants. You just definitely wouldn’t save money. It sounds good on the surface, but it’s as Mr. Poe said, you would definitely lose the closeness, the local control. All of the board members at Woodbridge and those at other districts are available to the residents they represent, and it gets harder to see your constituents when there is a board of five people and you represent an entire county.” Harris: “I personally think that consolidation of the districts would not work and I am opposed to it. It is not only a disservice to our students but also to our staff and faculty members. If you look at the concept of consolidation, take Sussex County for example, you have teachers in the Cape Henlopen School District who make more than other teachers, and whether or not we level up or level down, we are treating our teachers and our students in such a way that if we level down we lose quality teachers because they leave due to pay cuts. If we level up we are taking money from other areas and putting funds into teachers’ salaries so then programs get short funded. In the end, it’s just not a good idea.” Question: “What is your primary vision for education in our community?” Gilefski: “To continue the excellence that I have experienced and most people have come to notice recently in the Woodbridge School District. It saddens me a little bit, although it’s not much of a surprise that our high school, in particular, is a low performing school and is on ‘academic watch.’ We are not seeing those
students do as well as we would like to see them do. Fiscal responsibility is important. I think Dr. Carson can certainly crunch numbers, but as a math teacher I know I can, and with my fellow board members we want the district to prosper, and you literally can’t prosper if you don’t mind the dollars and the cents. I would like to contribute in that respect. Districts have to watch the money with many pairs of eyes, and asking a lot of questions, but in particular, as far as the system goes, helping high school students achieve more is important. There is an awful lot more that goes on in schools than test scores show.” Harris: “My primary vision for education in our community is to move Woodbridge forward to more greatness than it has already attained. Like I said, as a graduate I understand where our high school is currently in terms of achievement, and I also understand the potential that our high school students and our faculty at the high school have, and it is my ultimate goal to serve the Woodbridge School District so that when you think of excellence in education in Delaware, you think Woodbridge. The people who come out of Woodbridge are amazing; students have the talent and the capabilities. The potential is there. We just need to foster that by developing programs that get students to the level where we know they can be. Poe: “In connection with what these gentlemen said, I would like to see the high school achievement be better and work on that. I’d like to let high school folks know that there is no reason to leave Woodbridge or Sussex County for something better. I’d just like to continue what they have started at the elementary school on through to the high school.” Question: “What could the board do to encourage positive community participation in the event of a future referendum?” Harris: “I think that the board could be more transparent in terms of what they expect from the community, and engaging the community in a more positive manner. For years, when there were referendums, the board put it out there that this is what we want to do, but there really wasn’t much give and take from the side of the community’s view. If the board could come up with better strategies in terms of how to better present the information to the community, then they would be more successful.” Poe: “Like Mr. Harris said, the term referendum has a bad feeling with it, so I think the board and the district needs to try and come up in a more positive manner, and more positive give and take, and open the process up to the community. It would be better if the district didn’t use the kids as an excuse, if you will, to close programs and say it’s for the kids. It’s not really for the kids; it’s for the community. It’s for more than just the kids. It’s for community and people coming into the community as well.” Gilefski: “In my experience at Woodbridge different boards have approached referenda in different ways. One particularly good way, I thought, was that every board member got to nominate five people to form a committee to have some input, some give and take, and with a relatively small number of people, 25 or 30 people, that was done. Other boards have chosen to go other directions, but I do know the major capital improvements, when we renovated this auditorium, built the auditorium at the high school, and did a lot of
other physical renovations, it took a lot of selling the idea to the community. As you make approaches to community groups, board members themselves, and not necessarily “the” superintendent or “the” assistant superintendent could lead the discussions because I certainly think we have five capable board members, capable of standing up in front of a group of their friends and neighbors and explaining why we are asking for money.” Question: “What long-range plan would you want to implement for our district to encourage students and parents to want to remain in our schools through graduation?” Gilefski: “I know that administrators are doing more and more to encourage 8th graders to choose Woodbridge over schools like Sussex Tech. They have done some simple but pleasant things to encourage students who are deciding where they want to attend high school, such as sending personal letters to students who are still unsure, and sweatshirts with letters to those students who have chosen to attend Woodbridge welcoming them to the school. “I think nothing would be a bigger draw to our students to finish their education at Woodbridge than a new high school. Kids look at the building. It’s beautiful, it’s always been very clean, but it’s eighty years old. They see an eighty-year-old building. Then they look at the new Cape Henlopen or Sussex Tech buildings, and just from the look of it, they have, perhaps, to a 13 or 14-year-old, a more appealing look.” Harris: “I guess I would have to agree with Mr. Gilefski about a new high school. When I came through Woodbridge, people said Sussex Tech has this, Sussex Tech has that. I believe we need to market Woodbridge High School better, showing parents and students the programs we have here. We need to shift their mindset away from the stigma that has been labeled in recent years of Woodbridge being a high school on ‘academic watch,’ and if the parents and students have that assurance that they are still getting a top rate education at Woodbridge, they would be more open to coming here.” Poe: “I think that getting the high school off of ‘academic watch’ would certainly help a lot. I’d like to think that the look of the high school doesn’t matter as much as what goes on there, but maybe that’s a little different in today’s society. I think that also marketing the things that Woodbridge High School has added on would help. I think that people think that they can find anything they want at Sussex Tech as far as their vocation goes. They don’t realize what Woodbridge has developed over the last few years, so I think a little bit of marketing and getting the high school off ‘academic watch’ would certainly help. I think here students get a little better sense of community, and maybe we could sell that sense of community to them.” Candidates also answered questions from the audience regarding dress code for teachers, private vs. public education, teacher recruitment, student retention, educational funding, curriculum development, nutrition, community outreach, and student discipline. In their closing statements, all three candidates mentioned the importance of combining common sense with justice, fairness, respect, and mercy in making decisions impacting students, teachers and the community.

Seaford School Board candidates participate in debate By Lynn R. Parks
The two candidates for the Seaford School Board see different causes behind improved behavior at the middle school. Board president John Hanenfeld credits the school’s policy of zero tolerance for reducing bad behavior. But challenger Frank Parks cites the Spotlight on Success (SOS) program at the school, a program that rewards good behavior and that is being honored by the state chamber’s Superstars in Education later this month. “Six years ago, the middle school had one of the highest expulsion rates in the state,” Hanenfeld said during last week’s forum featuring the two candidates, sponsored by the Seaford chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). “Now, it is decreasing. Why? Because students know the consequences we will put on them if they misbehave.” “I give a lot of credit to the middle school and [principal] Stephanie Smith, but I don’t think it’s all because of zero tolerance,” Parks said. “Students have always had rules to abide by and does making more rules make a difference? The SOS program rewards kids for good behavior. The best way to encourage kids to behave is to give positive reinforcement.” In his introductory remarks, Hanenfeld, who is running for his second five-year term, listed as one of his primary accomplishments improved security in the district’s school. “All schools are locked and secure,” he said. Frederick Douglass Elementary School has a buzz-in system, he added, and the interior doors at West Seaford Elementary are locked, forcing all visitors to go to the school office. But Parks wondered if all that security is a good thing. He criticized what he called a “prison mentality” at the high school, saying that it is one reason parents are electing to send students to other schools. “I don’t agree with more security and

bers of the board and district staff is gone. The board is more transparent: Each board member is assigned a school to regularly visit and e-mail that is sent to the board now goes directly to each member instead of to members through the district office. Hanenfeld has addressed the last two graduating classes and talks to the staff at the beginning of each school year. “When I get calls from teachers, I respond,” he said. “When I get calls from coaches, I respond. To say that we do not reach out to faculty members is not the case.” During his tenure, the district has raised its requirements for student promotion and will increase the rigor of its curriculum even more starting in the fall, he said. In answer to a question about increasing the accountability of the district superintendent, Hanenfeld said that the board “has taken initial steps” to enforce superintendent priorities and goals. More broadly, administration hiring practices have changed so that one board member sits in on the initial interview and the full board conducts a final interview. All administrator compensation packages are reviewed annually by the board. In his closing remarks, Hanenfeld said that it is an unavoidable fact that the demographics of the Seaford community have changed. The district is now among the poorest in the state. “We have to deal with students who come to our schools,” he said. “We have to embrace them and teach them.” “Ten or 15 years ago, people wanted to come to Seaford for its schools,” Parks said. “Now, it seems many want to go to other areas. Turning our schools around will not be easy. But with good positions and a great outlook, we can do it.”
discipline,” Parks said. “I think we have all the discipline we need. If a student gets into a fight at the high school, he is taken away in handcuffs. How much more disciplined can you get?” The two candidates also disagreed over the district’s new, stricter dress code, set to go into effect in the fall. Hanenfeld, who said that the board labored for two years over the policy, said that if he had his way, the district’s students would wear uniforms. Only “economic constraints” kept board members from enacting a uniform, he added; the district would be required to pay for uniforms for students who could not afford them. The district’s new dress code will lead to improved social interaction and improved behavior, Hanenfeld said. “Making everyone look the same is unAmerican,” countered Parks. “We need to celebrate our diversity, not squash it. And there are so many other things you can do to improve the school. My feathers get a little bit ruffled when you tell me that I have to buy certain clothes for my children because you aren’t doing a good enough job.” About 70 people attended the forum, which was held in the auditorium at Central Elementary School. Moderator was Ron MacArthur, a reporter with the Cape Gazette newspaper in Lewes and former editor of the Seaford Star. The candidates answered questions that were submitted by AAUW members. They also answered questions that were submitted by members of the audience and read by MacArthur. Parks spelled out several ideas he has for improving the district. He would like to see an incentive system, through which teachers whose students do well get a little extra money. That money, he said, could in turn be used to reward the students. Such a program would accomplish several things, he said. It would improve morale and increase test scores and would also boost enrollment, because parents would be more inclined to keep their chil-
dren in the district. That in turn would mean more money coming into the district, Parks said. “For every 100 kids that we lose, that means $1 million [in state funding] that we lose,” he said. Parks would also like to see afterschool tutoring offered at the high school and buses available to take students home following athletic practices and other afterschool activities. And he would like the district to start a program through which seniors could serve three-week internships at community businesses. Such a program would help the students decide what career paths to take and would also acquaint members of the community with the students and establish a relationship with the schools. “It would be a great way to get the community involved,” he said. Parks also suggested that the district’s fifth-graders be moved into the middle school and its eighth-graders, now in the middle school, be sent to the high school. This would alleviate over-crowding in the elementary schools and at the same time would permit fifth-graders to take additional classes like band and language. Eighth-graders in the high school would be able to take advanced classes that aren’t offered in the middle school. “I think that we are holding our children back because of the limitations of our buildings,” he said. “All of our students would be able to perform better if they had more opportunities.” In addition to improved school security and the stricter dress code, Hanenfeld, who has endorsements from the four other school board members, counted among his accomplishments a more effective board. “During my five-year tenure, I have led a transformation of a truly fragmented group of individuals into a cohesive team,” he said. He said that the board and the teachers and other staff members are the district’s strongest asset. He said that the old “us vs. them” mindset that used to exist between mem-

SCRAP TIRES COLLECTED - The recent Scrap Tire Drop-off event at the Seaford Boat Ramp parking lot netted 22 tons of scrap tires – more than 1,700 old passenger vehicle tires that could have ended up in an unsightly, scrap tire pile or left to decompose in a Delaware landfill. The event, the fourth held over the last two years, provided Delaware residents with the opportunity to recycle scrap tires free of charge and help reduce the environmental and health hazards of scrap tires in our communities. The City of Seaford partnered with DNREC to host this event by allowing the use of a section of the parking lot at the Boat Ramp facility. The Delaware Scrap Tire Cleanup and Control Program is funded by a state fee of $2 per tire on the sale of new tires. Enacted Jan. 1, 2007, the fee is diverted to the Scrap Tire Management Fund, a matching fund and program created to clean up existing scrap tire piles statewide. For more information, visit www.awm.delaware.gov/Info/Pages/ScrapTire.aspx, or contact the Scrap Tire Control and Cleanup Program at 302-739-9403.
For your information: The Seaford School Board election will be Tuesday, May 11. Voting will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the district office at 390 N. Market St. For details, call the district at 629-4587.
News from the Seaford Library and Cultural Center
By Anne Nesbitt In the interest of maintaining children’s reading skills and literacy levels during the summer months, the Seaford Library has planned an active Children’s Summer Reading Program. Children of all reading levels and abilities are welcome. These programs expand a child’s world of knowledge and enlightenment while providing entertainment. The official registration and opening is set for June 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. A child may attend any session without being registered but if the child is not registered he or she is not eligible for prizes, T-shirts, certificates or a reading log on which the child records the number of minutes spent reading during the summer months. A child can be registered any day until July 23. The registration form requires only name, address, telephone number and grade just
MORNING STAR • MAy 6 - 12, 2010
In an effort to help shine more light onto the race for the Seaford School Board seat, the Star is printing the following statements from the two candidates.
I got involved with the Seaford School District, first as a parent, then as a coach and a volunteer with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Many of you know, I spent my high school years struggling because I did not have a sense of purpose in my life. After a spiritual awakening on Friday the 13th of October 1989, I spent eight months in jail and rehab. It was during this time I realized that everything has a purpose and that God had a better plan for me and I have been sober ever since. I moved to Seaford in 1990, met my wife Leigh Ann, we bought a house had two children, started a business and have been blessed beyond belief. For many years I thanked God privately for saving me from alcoholism, drug addiction and suicide. I was ashamed of my past and did not want anyone to know what I had been through. My close friends were often shocked when I would share my checkered past with them, as I am sure many of you are as well. For many years, I would reach out to area youth when I heard they were struggling with addiction or alcoholism. I would encourage them to stay sober, pray and seek help from above, as this is what helped me to turn my life around. I have served in many ways at St. John’s Church and as past president of the Seaford Lion’s Club. I have been recognized as one of the top Realtors in the nation when I was under 30 years old. I have spent much of my time coaching and participating in many sports. I enjoyed life to the fullest and thought I was doing everything I possibly could to make the world a better place. In 2006, my wife asked me to go on a spiritual retreat, I reluctantly agreed to go because I thought I was already doing a pretty good job in life. When I got there, I realized it was Friday the 13th of October, exactly 17 years to the day after I first got on my knees to ask God for help. On this weekend, I began to use my past as a positive and I began to look for ways to help young people before they got hooked on drugs. Shortly thereafter I was introduced to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and began coaching girls Soccer at Seaford Middle School. Many think that having Christian events at school is a violation of the “Separation of Church and State.” The reality is that government cannot establish a religion nor can they prohibit the free expression of religion. Government did not estab-
Letters to the Editor
lish Christianity and by not allowing our students to express their faith during the school day, I believe they are prohibiting the free expression of their faith. Our students would like to have a rally during the school day. In the last two years they have been allowed out of class for sporting events, school plays and to give blood. We are sending our children to school to learn and we are leaving out the most important lessons in the best selling book of all time. We as a community have the right to see that our children have as much access to the Bible as they do to any other text books, if the parents and students choose. In addition to Christian education being available for those who choose, I feel strongly that we should have incentive programs for staff and students where they would be rewarded for doing a better job. We should have evening busses for those students who wish to stay after for tutoring and activities. We should move our 5th grade to the Middle School and 8th grade to the high school to ease crowding in the elementary schools and make room for pre-school programs. This would better prepare children to enter kindergarten and to overcome excessive transfers by offering more to our students sooner. Our 5th graders can have more access to band, languages, after school sports, clubs and many other programs if they were all together. Our 8th graders can become part of our High School sooner and take more challenging courses if they choose. They may be less likely to transfer out once they are part of our middle school and high school. We need to be more inviting to our community in our schools instead of locking them out. We need to have discipline but we also need to have more counseling and mentoring available to guide our students in the right direction. We should have senior internships where our students can work in the many businesses we have in the community. One of the first questions someone coming to our town usually asks is “How are the schools?” The answer used to be one of the best in the state. Now we do not have the same response. I know we can turn this around quickly but it will take a school board, staff and community that is encouraging, optimistic and willing to listen. I hope that I have the opportunity to serve as your next school board member but regardless of the outcome of the election, pray for our schools. Frank Parks
Seaford School Board Candidate
Over the past few months, many parents and staff members have asked me what I believe are the accomplishments of the board since I began my term, especially the past three years as president. During my tenure: • All schools are locked and secure - The board has increased security throughout our district. Frederick Douglass Elementary has a locked door buzz in system; all faculty members have entry swipe cards, all school exterior doors are locked and routinely patrolled. Board has directed and encourages that all schools will have similar buzz in systems as FDES. West Seaford now has interior lobby doors locked which requires all visitors to enter through the office and sign in. Solutions at our middle school are forthcoming. • We have increased transparency at the board level. All board members are assigned schools to visit routinely. Direct email communication to all members on the board via the district website comes to each member uncensored; school leadership teams visit with the board with open dialogue without prejudice routinely. • Administration hiring practices have changed. Today, all administrator candidates come before the board for a final interview. One board member sits on initial interview committee and all qualifications of all applicants are shared with the board. All jobs within the district are posted. • I requested the review of particular administrator employment agreements that resulted in modifications to contract language. • We have raised our requirements for student promotion. Starting this fall, we will increase the rigor for all students to exceed the minimum requirements of the Wagner Law. • We strive for equity among all staff members and schools. • Reestablished board retreats for goal and planning sessions. • I have addressed the staff as board president at the beginning of each school year. I have addressed the last two graduating classes. • We have modified the regulation so that all administrator compensation packages must be reviewed by the board annually. • Introduced model for Seaford School District Community Collation to engage public services, faith based groups, district and city to tackle at risk students. Open dialogue for a Community School Platform. • Researched and presented religious history based curriculum for consideration at SHS during Public Board session.

• Welcomed the “Fellowship of Christian Athletes” as an elective after-school activity. • We have issued directives for additional after school activities such as lacrosse, girl’s volleyball, chess team/club, etc. • Met or have spoken with boosters – parents – coaches, to revert start times for soccer and (hopefully basketball) next year. Starting times of all athletic events will be discussed and agreed at the board level before enactment. • I and the board are true advocates to all stakeholders and faculty. • I have had open discussions with DOE/governor’s office, Secretary of Education and other elected officials to discuss the enrollment practices and economic advantages of Sussex Tech. • Started land search for school expansion within the district. Currently, we are land locked. • Researched and adopted new dress code for all students within our district beginning this fall. Continue to further evaluate school uniforms over the coming years. • We will begin discussions to increase staff moral with board sponsored events for district family gatherings on an annual basis. • Recognize the necessity to bring back professional development time during the school year. Board members have and will continue to attend National School Board Conferences for our professional development. • We have a Music Academy starting in the fall. • Started turf management curriculum at the high school’s new greenhouse. • We will have a hired a new director of secondary education from outside the district who will start in mid-May. • Each board meeting commences with the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence. • And, most importantly, my two children have attended the Seaford Schools. Since I started my five-year term in 2005, I have led a transformation from a fragmented group of individuals into a strong, cohesive team working towards common goals with our staff. I ask the community to share my vision and help me build a stronger staff, further increase community morale and involvement, and build a community network between our governmental, nonprofit, faith-based organizations, that will more adequately meet the needs of our Seaford students and families.

Bill enhances Internet protection
Lawmakers unanimously passed legislation recently that would protect children who access the Internet at Delaware’s public libraries. House Bill 340 would update a law first enacted in 2004 by employing more technology-neutral language, accommodating the growing use of wireless access and the inevitable introduction of other technologies. The measure would subject the use of personal mobile devices (e.g. web-enabled phones, laptops) within a public library to that library’s acceptable use policy. The bill also would enhance the original established protections for children who use library computers. Bill sponsor Rep. John C. Atkins said the legislation would serve a dual purpose of promoting wireless technology and increased Internet access while protecting children from obscene or sensitive materials. A recent study published by the Institute of Museum and Library Services reports that 45 percent of the 169 million visitors to U.S. public libraries over the past year connected to the Internet using a library computer or wireless network during their visit. Many of these individuals have Internet access at home, but chose to use library networks for a variety of reasons. HB 340 moves to the Senate for consideration.
