fields of gold


ctober 2010 will mark the 25th Anniverary of when we got married on Assateague Island, Maryland. We used the little boardwalk from the parking lot out to the northern beach as our church aisle, Chris English sang us off with his rich blues, while shorebirds swooped and soared in the ocean spray. Our little Izusu pickup truck was decorated by friends and we whooped it up later upstairs in our first studio at 4 Jefferson Street, in Berlin. It was one week after a wild hurricane that blew the roof off what was then, a derelict Atlantic Hotel just across the street, and buried our island town home in Frenchtown on Tangier Sound in eelgrass, and debris-(after the angry bay had receded from banging on our kitchen doors). Brother Bozman assured us with his 80 some years of waterman wisdom that; “Don’ worry none, that big sun be out fer yor weddin nes’ week.” We had little money and used every penny to further the slow progress on fixing up our tumbledown house. Neighbors dropped off “paperbacks;” slightly hardened softshell crabs, and extra tomatoes from their gardens. I found a long neglected fig bush in the tangle of our new back yard. Hazel Kraft, with her touseled mop of white hair showed me how to pickle the figs with her coveted cinnamon oil. I kept one jar for years not wanting to release that afternoon to history. When I did unscrew the lid to share with dinner guests- the figs were just as sweet. Years of storms and glorious autumn days have stolen these dear neighbors to memory, reshaped shorelines, broken down some buildings and restored others to their former historic granduer. Our Eastern Shore has evolved, yet the soft pink light at days end causes even the most seasoned resident to pause and feel the golden breath of time.

on my bike and pedaling... Dana Simson Dedicated to:

Living well on Delmarva

All the wonderful folks that set a table outside, raise a toast to friends, pick up a battered old guitar, a set of spoons to clatter and sing late into the night.


The easiest way to upgrade your vehicle’s performance is to see us for a set of BFGoodrich® tires. BFGoodrich engineered the first street tire to pull a 1G turn, so it’s the name performance enthusiasts turn to first. Bolt on grip. Bolt on BFGoodrich.

What’s New at the Zoo?

A capital campaign to raise funds to build a new Animal Health Clinic, re-model the William Morgan Visitor Center and add new animal exhibits! To meet AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) accreditation requirements and the Zoo’s current needs; the commissary (to prepare the diets for the animals in the Zoo), quarantine facility and medical facility need to be updated. The new Animal Health Clinic is the initial reason for starting the campaign and will be the cornerstone for the Zoo’s future development. Renovations to William Morgan Visitor Center will create a space that will serve as an educational and environmental center for the zoo. This building will house the Zoo’s reptile and amphibian collection (snakes, frogs, salamanders, turtles), along with other small animals such as spiders and insects. The new Environmental Center will provide a variety of educational opportunities. The building will follow the current trends in sustainable design and construction, including using recycled lumber, insulation with recycled materials, solar power, rain barrels, etc. The animals and displays, along with the building itself, will allow the Zoo to inspire a whole new level of environmental awareness. Today, the Salisbury Zoo features animal species native to the Americas, but plans are being developed to add an area that highlights the natural wonders of Australia. Our walkabout will include wallabies, a small type of kangaroo, and birds. ( including the raucous kookaburra!) Get up close to Australian parrots; from the elegant lorikeets to the common budgerigars, in a new walk-through aviary with controlled feeding stations that will allow visitors to have a “hands on” experience with these animals!


Funding for future capital improvements at the Zoo come from private donations. The City of Salisbury, the Salisbury Zoo Commission and the Wicomico County Hotel Room Tax, support the daily operations of the Zoo. To bring in exciting new animals, exhibits and educational opportunities, the zoo depends on the community it serves.

Please support the campaign and help us Renew the Zoo!

To make a pledge, contact Stacey Weisner at the Delmarva Zoological Society (443)880-8627. Come to one of our fun benefit events15,16 Night of the Living Zoo 6pm-9pm, Scarey Fun Zoo wide!

above & beyond Martin T. “Marty” Neat

: President & CEO of First Shore Federal Savings & Loan, headquartered in Salisbury with eight branches on the Lower Shore. Community Focus Active in many community organizations, but my main focus at present is to help the Zoo meet its goals to become better equipped to educate the public and care for it’s animals

Leonora Dillion;Curator of Education & Marty Neat, Chairman of the General Campaign to Renew the Zoo, with Owl at the Salisbury Zoo.

Community Focus -

“I became involved with the Zoo because I recognized the unique asset that the Zoo is to our community and market. When our family has visited from outside the area, the Zoo is always at the top of the list to visit. There aren’t many communities in the nation which have a Zoo and even fewer have a Zoo that doesn’t charge its visitors. We’re fortunate to have both.” Acknowledging people that go above & beyond in serving their workplace & the greater community.


Project : I am General Campaign Chairman of the public campaign and so am responsible for fundraising from the general public. We’re currently conducting our business campaign, approaching businesses for 3-5 year pledges to the Renew the Zoo program. This $3 million campaign will allow the Zoo to build a new animal health clinic, rebuild the Visitors Center, and establish a new Australian animals exhibit. For the public campaign, we’ve been fortunate to receive matching gifts of $300,000 each from the Richard A. Henson Foundation and the Arthur W. Perdue Foundation. These funds will match $2 for every $1 we raise up to $300,000 in the public campaign. We have volunteers approaching local businesses and civic leaders for financial support ... a large local mailing will occur in October. We’ve raised $2.25 million to date for the Renew the Zoo program and seek to raise the balance in our public campaign. The public can help by responding to our campaign mailing (in October) or sending in a contribution (or multi year pledge) to the Delmarva Zoological Society, P O Box 4621, Salisbury MD 21803. Favorite thing about the Zoo. That it’s free and accessible to so many kids. How do you recharge: Personally, I recharge by walking, visiting the beach, enjoying sports & reading and life in general on our beautiful Eastern Shore. Words of wisdom: A quote that I received from former Salisbury Mayor Frank Morris - a real community leader. They’re simple words but a very profound message. “We cannot have a better life without

improving our community. Our particular duty is to do those things that we are capable of doing.”

started 22 years ago with 60 riders; made up of SU staff, students and a handful of local bike enthusiasts.

how many folks ride?....coming from how far?

Last year we had just over 8300 registered participants coming from as far as CA., Canada, even the Virgin Islands!

what is the age range and male to female ratio?

Last year we had riders age 7 to age 87. Currently the male to female ratio is about 2:1 What is the average time- fastest time? The ride draws in experienced cyclists that can finish it in around 4 hours to extreme novices that may take over 7 hours to complete. It’s hard to tell exactly because there is no official start time. It’s a show and go start. What is the course map? This year there are three routes, two 100 mile routes and one 100km route. All three start and finish at Salisbury University but take different loops around the surrounding areas including Princess Anne, Berlin, and all the way out to Assateague Island. Maps are on

A BIG Win/Win for all of us! The racing crowd, whether on bike, foot or by water, brings the best kind of eco-tourism to the Delmarva Peninsula. They represent a pro-community minded, well educated demographic, active professionally and personally in positive issues. Most races have a charity element, bringing much needed funding to assist in furthering the goals of area non-profits.

There is something very promising about seeds.

Even if your well intentioned garden dried up and blew into your neighbor’s yard- or if in spite of the drought weeds secretly found steriods to wrestle your lovely cultivated plants into submission, perhaps on the frazzled tip of a tired stem there are seeds. Seeds to try again next year! Rescue those seeds oh’ brave gardner, lovingly shake them onto the stoutest of paper towel and roll them into a sacred gesture to the future. (store in a dry dark place and please label with the variety & year-I do forget this once in a while resulting in mystery garden- mixed with mystery weedsso... well you see the dilemma- which to nurture-which to murder. hmmmm.) If by now you haven’t noticed, I am only an existential version of Martha Stewart, full of potential wisdom, but not as clean and wondering when the help will show up... Ah, but now on to some useful chatterOpen Pollinated or heirloom, self-pollinated plants are the only varieties that will grow true from seed, meaning the seedlings will be exactly like the parents. These are the seeds worth saving.

Roasted Garlic

1 Preheat the oven to 400째F. 2 Peel away the outer layers of the

garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic. 3 Place the garlic heads in a baking pan or muffin pans. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, Making sure the garlic head is well coated. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400째F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed. 4 Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Use a small knife to cut the skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.

Eat as is (delicious!) or mash with a fork and use for cooking. Can be spread over warm French bread, mixed with sour cream for a topping for baked potatoes, or mixed in with Parmesan and pasta. This can help fend off an on-coming cold!



GET your Garlic in! Garlic is one of the easiest plants to grow.

You plant the individual cloves within the bulb in fall. Choose the largest cloves you have, to get the largest bulbs. Plant each clove in well drained soil 2-3 inches below the soil surface, 6 inches apart and mulch with straw. Garlic has many uses, as an astringent with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. A small amount in food will keep mosquitoes and fleas away from your pets.( & around the 31st, repell vampires:)

eat well . stay well

Harvesting Next summer-dig, don’t pull garlic out of the ground. You may have planted a small clove, but the bulb is now several inches deep with a strong root system. When to harvest garlic is a judgment call, but basically it’s ready to go when the lower leaves start to brown. About the only way to be sure is to actually dig a few bulbs and slice them in half. If the cloves fill out the skins, it’s time. Harvesting too soon will result in smaller cloves that don’t store well. Leave the bulbs in the ground too long and the cloves may be bursting out of their skins, making them unstorable and open to disease. Brush off any soil clinging to the bulbs. Allow the bulbs to cure or dry for three to four weeks in either a well-ventilated room or a dry, shady spot outside. Once the tops and roots have dried they can be cut off. Garlic likes to be on the cool side, store at 32oF - 40o. to get to more helpful information visit click on the gardenwarrior blog let us know your ideas or thoughts email:

The 10 warmest years on record all occurred since 1990, and the last decade was the hottest recorded since worldwide record keeping began more than 100 years ago. The period between January and June of 2010 was the warmest six months on record. 14 countries reported their HOTTEST summer ever on record. * A warming climate increases the chance that we will experience extreme weather events such as floods, droughts and intense storms, and ramps up the risk that severe weather events will cause catastrophic damage. * The floods, fires and droughts we’re seeing in places like Pakistan and Russia are consistent with the effects of global warming, including temperature increases, increased precipitation in some parts of the world, and droughts in others. * In early August, a 97-square mile chunk of ice--the largest since 1962--(4 times the size of Manhattan) broke away from the northwest coast of Greenland. * A study in Nature has concluded that as oceans warm, phytoplankton, the tiny organisms that form the crucial first level of the entire marine food chain are disappearing. * The diagnosis of focus groups and pollsters was that Americans “didn’t care” about global warming. That was certainly the tack taken by President Obama’s administration, which has consistently urged green groups to downplay global warming and play up the “clean energy future” instead.
