Seaford’s Penco Corporation celebrates 60th anniversary By Lynn R. Parks In the more than 30 years that they have been with the company that their fathers founded, Kent Peterson and George Sapna have not seen an economic downturn as deep or severe as the one the nation is experiencing now. But they believe that the economy has turned a corner. And they agree that their company, the Seaford-based Penco Corporation, is stronger than ever. “In the past 18 months, we have done a top-to-bottom restructuring, and we are more focused,” said Peterson, executive vice president. “We are more efficient, we are more productive. And we will be more successful.” That restructuring included the loss of 20 employees, through attrition and through layoffs. “Layoffs are always a terrible thing to have to do,” said Peterson. “But we had to keep the ship sailing. We still have 70 employees here who are dependent on us being healthy.” This summer, Penco, a warehousing and plumbing and heating supply distribution company, will celebrate 60 years in business. Peterson and Sapna are looking forward to the future — to building more branches on Delmarva or beyond, perhaps, or even branching out from plumbing and heating supplies to other types of distribution. “Our sales are growing,” said Sapna, company president. “People are starting new projects and there are some housing developments in the works.” They are joined in that optimism by their sons. Scott Sapna, 30, joined the business seven years ago and Jeff Peterson, 28, joined the business five years ago. Scott is vice president of sales and Jeff is vice president of finances. “In 2005 and 2006 we couldn’t hire people fast enough Continued to page four

and all we did was react to situations,” said Scott. “Today’s business is a lot different and we have had to become proactive. We have done a good job of making the company stronger.” Jeff added that enduring the economic downturn was a good learning experience. “When Scott and I first came here, this business was easy,” he said. “In a way, I’m glad [the downturn] happened, so that we could learn from it.” “It was great for them to see the down side and learn why a business can’t live on the edge,” added Kent. Decades of growth Penco, originally called Peninsula Plumbing Supply, was founded on Aug. 3, 1949, by Oscar Peterson Jr. and George Sapna Sr. The two entrepreneurs were working for Seaford Plumbing Supply and when the contract they had with the owner was not honored, they decided to strike out on their own. They opened their own supply company at 613 Water St., Seaford, just down the street from that of their former employer. “My dad would stand out in the street and when plumbers came by on their way to Seaford Plumbing, he would flag them down and give them coffee, anything to get them to come in and buy,” George Jr. said. By 1955, the company had grown to the point that it needed more space. Sapna and Peterson bought the former Delaware Hosiery Mill at 200 N. Delaware Ave. in Seaford and the company moved in in January 1956. The first branch store was opened in Salisbury, Md., in 1964. In 1965, Sapna and Peterson entered into an agreement with the DuPont Co. to provide warehouse space, trucking and handling services for the Seaford nylon plant. The company opened a 123,000-square foot warehouse on Stein Highway west of Seaford in April 1967. Today, Penco has nearly 600,000 square feet of warehouse space on Stein Highway, which it leases out to half a dozen customers. In 1985, the company, by then the

Penco Corporation, moved its headquarters and plumbing and heating supply warehouse from Delaware Avenue to Stein Highway, next to the leased public warehouses. The 103,000-square foot warehouse that is there today serves as Penco’s central delivery and distribution center for its five branches in Newark, Rehoboth Beach, Camden, Easton, Md., and Salisbury, Md. In 2007, Penco opened Elegant Designs, a luxury kitchen and bathroom showroom next to the plumbing supply facility on Stein Highway in Seaford. While the showroom opened just at the start of the economic downturn, George said, its business is slowly picking up. “The showroom has enabled us to expand our customer base,” added Kent. “It used to be that the plumber bought everything. But now, we are dealing with plumbers as well as builders, architects, engineers, renovators and even consumers.” From one generation to the next All four principals of the Penco Corporation, father and son Sapna, father and son Peterson, are confident in the future of the company that has been handed down to them. And they are happy to be working there, something all four of them started when they were teenagers. “Kent and I worked summers and after school, starting when we were 14,” George said. “And Jeff and Scott had the same experience, sweeping the floors and washing the windows.” “I have always loved coming in here to work, learning the business and getting to know the workers,” said Jeff. And it might be that Penco is headed for a fourth generation working there. Scott and Jeff have two children each; Jeff’s son, Evan, 4, is already saying that when he grows up, he wants to work where his dad works. “I never pressed Jeff to work here,” said Kent. “Forcing your children to come into business with you can be a disaster. But I think that kids know if their parents like what they are doing and that that enthusiasm is contagious. Our sons just absorbed our love for this place by osmosis.”

Hearing set on Seaford’s plan to borrow $2.79 million Federal stimulus money would pay more than half the cost of water system improvements By Lynn R. Parks

The city of Seaford will hold a public hearing May 12 on its plan to borrow $2.79 million for water system improvements. This is one of four “shovel-ready” projects the city hopes to complete with the help of federal economic stimulus money. The hearing and a public referendum on the general obligation bond have to be held by the end of June, in order to qualify for the stimulus money.

The project would improve the water systems in two areas: in Westview, the community near West Seaford Elementary School and the intersection of Sussex Avenue and Stein Highway; and along Bridgeville Highway, from Herring Run Road to Dutton Avenue. The city wants to replace water mains in the two areas. It also wants to install water loops, eliminating dead end pipes where water just sits. Federal stimulus money would pay more than half of the cost of the project. “We would get 52-percent principal

forgiveness, if the city does everything it is supposed to,” city manager Dolores Slatcher told the city council Tuesday night. At an earlier meeting, Slatcher said that this project is among those that the city has wanted to do for years, but has never had the funding. “We are ready to go for bidding once we get the authorization,” she told the council at the March 10 meeting. Slatcher could not say what the interest rate on the loan would be, but said that the last loan the city received, in May 2008,

carried a 2.9-percent interest rate. The city will be required to pay 1 percent of the total loan, or $27,294, at the time of the loan approval. For your information: The city of Seaford will hold a public hearing Tuesday, May 12, on its plan to borrow $2.79 million for water system improvements. The hearing will start at 7:05 p.m. and will be held in the council chamber in city hall, 414 High St., Seaford. For details, call the city, 629-9173.

Seniors want to own planned life enhancement center By Lynn R. Parks

The Seaford City Council wants more information before it can agree to a request by the Nanticoke Senior Center that the center be allowed to own the building it plans to build. Construction of the 11,000-square-foot “life enhancement center” is planned for seven acres in the city’s Ross Business Park. The city will continue to own the land and had planned to own the building, in an arrangement similar to those that it has with the Seaford Volunteer Fire Depart-

ment and the Soroptimist Club, both of which operate in buildings that the city owns. Christy Pennington, a consultant with Horizon Philanthropic, Lewes, who is leading the effort to raise $2.37 million for the new senior center, told the council Tuesday night that fundraising could be more successful if the building that the organization is asking money for will in the end be owned by the organization. She is pursuing government loans and grants, she said, and applications for that type of funding have to come from the owner of the building.

Time is of the essence, Pennington added, because the senior center’s lease with the Western Sussex Boys and Girls Club in Seaford will run out in less than a year, in March. “There are a lot of deserving seniors who are going to be homeless soon, if we don’t do something,” said Rob Harman, capital campaign chairman for the center. “We have to define ownership of the building, so we can tell people what it is exactly we are raising money for,” he added. The center has about 900 members. City manager Dolores Slatcher asked

Pennington and Harman to provide to the city a letter, outlining the senior center’s request. She also asked for an example of a land-lease agreement, something that Harman, an area real estate agent, said he could provide. “We hear your request, but we have to go to our solicitor,” Slatcher said. “We have never done this before and we have to be comfortable with it.” Slatcher said that the senior center’s request will come back to the city council, along with information from the city’s solicitor, James Fuqua.

This new agreement will allow the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to have jurisdiction over hydrokinetic energy, and the Minerals Management Service of the Department of Interior to have jurisdiction for other sources of renewable energy.

Delaware will receive $2.88 million from the state’s second successful participation in a Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) auction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions allowances held Wednesday, March 18. All of Delaware’s 763,842 allowances for the 2009 vintage were sold at a clearing price of $3.51 per allowance. In a parallel offering, Delaware sold 66,698 allowances for $3.05 per allowance for the second three-year control period beginning in 2012. The 2012 vintage offering provides power plants and other entities that must comply with Delaware regulations the first-look at future market prices for RGGI CO2 allowances. In legislation passed last year by the Delaware General Assembly, approximately $1.87 million or 65 percent of the auction proceeds will be directed to the new Sustainable Energy Utility, the non-profit entity tasked to provide energy efficiency and renewable energy programs for households and businesses. A total of 15 percent of auction proceeds will be directed to

low income consumers, through programs administered by the Department of Health and Social Services. Up to 10 percent will be used for greenhouse gas reduction projects in Delaware and the remaining 10 percent may be used to administer RGGI and climate change programs in DNREC. According to RGGI Inc., 50 participants from the energy, financial and environmental sectors took part in the bidding, with demand for the allowances at 2.5 times the available supply. Delaware is one of ten northeast states (Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont) pioneering RGGI – the first market-based, mandatory cap-and-trade program in the U.S. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The RGGI participating states will hold quarterly auctions during the first RGGI three-year compliance period, Jan. 1, 2009 to Dec. 31, 2011. The next auction is scheduled for June 17, 2009.

MORNING STAR • APRIL 16 - 22, 2009

Citizen scientists work to keep watershed healthy By Lynn R. Parks

On a cold and windy April morning, Ric Johansen stood on the end of the floating dock at Phillip’s Landing near Bethel and dipped water out from the Broad Creek. He measured the water’s temperature and checked its clarity, lowering a black and white disc into the water until he could no longer see it. Fellow volunteer Fred Sponseller, who lives near Bethel, tested the water that Johansen dipped out of the creek to determine its acidity and dissolved oxygen levels, numbers that he recorded on a sheet of paper, along with details about the weather. He also bottled two samples of Broad Creek water that will be tested in a lab for bacteria and nutrients. Johansen, of Laurel, and Sponseller are volunteers with the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance’s creek watchers program. Last Tuesday, the two men started their monitoring season, a season that will last through November. “The Nanticoke River Watershed is the cleanest watershed in the Chesapeake Bay area,” said Sponseller. “And we want to keep it that way.” The creek watchers program, funded by grants from the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the Chesapeake Bay Trust, was started in 2007. Last year, volunteers monitored water quality at about 30 sites in the Nanticoke watershed. This year, nearly 40 volunteers will visit 43 sites, taking water samples every two weeks. Collected data will be sent to Delaware and Maryland state agencies as well as to the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay program. Envirocorp, a water-testing company in Harrington, does the lab analysis of the water samples for free. Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, helps the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance manage the data and compile an annual report on water quality. The 2007 report is available on the alliance’s website, www.nanticokeriver.org; the 2008 report is set to be released in late spring. Megan Ward, program manager for the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance, said that the data that volunteers collected in 2007 and 2008 support Sponseller’s statement that the Nanticoke is the healthiest river in the bay watershed. “The Nanticoke River is a symbol of what a Chesapeake Bay watershed should look like,” she said. Using volunteers to monitor the watershed’s water quality creates “ambassadors” for the river, Ward added; people who see first-hand how healthy the water is and then go out into the community and talk about the health of the Nanticoke and the value of protecting it. “The more attention the river gets and the more people realize its importance, the better chance it has to stay healthy,” she added. “People understand that we should fix things before they are broken.” Ward calls the volunteer creek watchers “citizen scientists.” “They are out in the field, keeping an eye on the health of the river and commu-

nicating back to us,” she said. “Our volunteer monitoring program is by far the most rigorous in the Chesapeake Bay region.” Johansen, who retired from an oil refinery in Philadelphia in 2004, said that during the decades that he worked there, he saw the health of the Schuylkill River, on which the refinery is located, improve

dramatically. “I would say that while I was there, the Schuylkill improved 80 percent,” he said. “I would never want the Nanticoke to look like the Schuylkill once did.” “This program is a wonderful thing,” he added. “We want to make sure that we leave something behind that we can be proud of.”

NoUVIR researchers share new technology used in museums When our tallest downtown building is a church steeple and tractors and chicken trucks are a common sight, it’s easy to forget Seaford has a number of companies tied to truly ground-breaking technologies. A big part of our rural community works daily on the cutting-edge of science. These companies are changing the world. The sources of this technology are not New York City, the Silicon Valley, Houston or Seattle, but Seaford, Delaware. Once again, our community’s technology is reaching outside of Delaware. On April 21, Ruth Ellen Miller, co-founder and president of NoUVIR Research, will present some of her research to the South Jersey Section of the American Chemical Society in Deptford, N.J. She will teach practical applications of quantum electrodynamics in “Reflected Energy Matching Theory as Applied to Photochemical Damage and the Response of Atomic Structure to Photons and Radiation.” Miller will discuss what light is, the mechanics of light dam-

age and how it happens and why photons threaten artifacts in museums and collections. For the American Chemical Society, it will be an introduction into the fascinating science of where the “photo” in light impacts the “chemical” in a structure causing photochemical damage. It starts with understanding the physical nature of light, a subject that has baffled scientists for centuries. Miller will also detail her theory of Reflected Energy Matching. Stated simply, Miller’s theory says that reflected energy, the light we see reflected from an object, does not create damage. Absorbed energy, the radiation we can’t see, which is 94% of energy in incandescent lighting, does cause damage. While that sounds like a nobrainer, it took Ruth Ellen and her father, Jack, three years and several million dollars to develop a practical lighting system with no non-visible radiation. The proven REM Theory is put into practice in museums throughout the country. The

National Volunteer Week celebration

Nanticoke Health Services joins communities across the nation in celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 19-25. This year’s theme is NHS Volunteers: Stars, Stripes, and Volunteers Forever. The dedicated volunteers of Nanticoke Health Services gave over 33,000 hours of service in 2008. According to Jean Baldwin, director of Volunteer Services, Nanticoke Health Services will say a red, white and blue “Thank You” to the hundreds of citizens who actively volunteer their time and talents to the betterment of their community. Volunteers will be recognized at a banquet on Thursday, April 23 at 5 p.m. at the Seaford Golf & Country Club. To learn more about becoming a Nanticoke Health Services volunteer, call 302-6296611, ext. 2475.

Meet the Woodbridge Candidates night

The Woodbridge School District PTO will host a “Meet the Candidates” night at Woodbridge Elementary School on Tuesday, April 28, at 7 p.m. Candidates involved in this election are Alice Jeanne Matsinger and Willie Savage II. We welcome district residents to come and get a better understanding of our candidates and ask questions pertaining to their views on the future of our district.

Seaford School Board Candidates Forum

The Western Sussex Branch of the American Association of University Women will sponsor a Seaford School Board Candidates Forum at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, in the Central Elementary School Auditorium, Delaware Place, Seaford. The three candidates running for the five-year term beginning July 1 are Douglas Collins, Kathryn Kimpton and Richard Williams. The election will be held on Tuesday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at the District Administrative Office, N. Market St., Seaford.

Library of Congress used REM Theory when lighting Thomas Jefferson’s hand-written draft of the Declaration of Independence. The United States Air Force used it to display the first Air Force One, FDR’s “Sacred Cow.” The Houston Museum of Natural Science used it to light “Lucy,” the oldest human fossil ever found; and at the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield

REM Theory protects rare Civil War uniforms. You can also see it in practice at the Delaware Public Archives in Dover where Delaware’s copy of the Bill of Rights is on display and closer to home, throughout the Seaford Museum. Lighting with absolutely no ultraviolet radiation and no infrared energy (no heat), no UV and no IR, has been manufactured

here in Seaford by NoUVIR Lighting since 1995. Even better, removing that damaging radiation also saves energy, sometimes as much as 70%. Next time you see a tractor or a chicken truck, remember that we’re not just feeding the world. We’re also making the finest quality lighting in the world right here. It’s one more thing for Seaford to crow about.

Western Sussex Relay for Life goal is $145,000 By Carol Kinsley

Just as a personal fight with cancer is long and often grueling, the American Cancer Society’s signature fund-raising activity, Relay for Life, isn’t just a quick walk in the park, but at least it’s enjoyable. Held in many different communities across the nation, Relays for Life are an overnight event, some lasting 24 hours, with team members taking turns walking a half-hour or hour at a time. This year they will be at the Nanticoke Hospital Mears Health campus across from the post office in Seaford May 15 through 16, from 6 p.m. until 8 a.m. There will be a reception for cancer survivors at 4 p.m. Relay for Life is a moving celebration of cancer survivorship. First around the track are cancer survivors, taking a victory lap. A candlelight ceremony is held later in the evening to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have been lost to the disease. The idea began in 1985 with Dr. Gordy Klatt, a Tacoma, Wash., colorectal surgeon who decided to show his support for all his patients who had battled cancer and to personally raise money for the fight by doing something he enjoyed, running marathons. He ran the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound for 24 hours, logging more than 83 miles. Cheered on by patients, family and friends, he raised $27,000 that night. The idea caught on and became a volunteer-driven, community event. In Sussex County, there are two events, east and west, with Georgetown the dividing point; however, lots of people participate in both when they can. East Sussex Relay for Life will be held May 8 through 9 at the American Legion Post 28, 31768 Legion Dr., Millsboro. For more information, visit www.relayforlife. org/eastsussex. Twenty-eight teams with a total of 245 members have already registered for the West Sussex Relay, including more than 70 cancer survivors, some of them still in treatment. “It’s not too late to register,” suggested Tara Trout, one of last year’s top participants. Teams can register or get more information at www.relayforlife.org/westsussex, or by calling Trout at (302) 5361076. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $100, or each team, $1,000. This year’s goal is $145,000, an ambitious increase over 2008’s $131,000 proceeds — but it rained last year, Trout explained. In fact, she lamented, it always seems to rain on relay weekend. This year the group is prepared with a “rain location” at Nanticoke Hospital’s Cancer Care Center Parking Garage on Middleford Road. All proceeds go to help people of western Sussex who are battling cancer — for treatment, research, even wigs. Those in need of such assistance can call the American Cancer Society at (800) ACS-2345 or visit www.cancer.org. Trout described the event as a big camporee. Teams set up tents at campsites along the trail for those who are staying all night. (Note camp fires are forbidden.)

Some sites are decorated in keeping with the year’s theme, which for 2009 is “Rock ‘N Relay.” The campsites are judged, and one team will win a trophy. A trophy is also given for the most “spirit points” earned by such things as attending pre-relay meetings, and to the

team that brings in the most money. Top teams last year were Team Trinity, Soroptimist of Seaford, Curves for a Cure, Cedar Avenue Circus and the Wolf Gang. Several bands and individuals will be performing throughout the night. Much of the fundraising will continue, with bake

sales, hot dogs, pork sandwiches, jewelry sales, raffles and a silent auction that goes on until 7 a.m. The event is open to the public until 11 p.m. Leading up to the Relay for Life are a number of fun fundraising events. Team Continued to page 55

Candy Abbott honored in Delaware Tech Hall of Fame A woman who was associated with Delaware Technical & Community College before the college officially opened was inducted on March 12 into the Hall of Fame at the Owens Campus. Candace (Candy) Abbott, a resident of Georgetown, was honored for her dedication and outstanding service to the college. A bronze plaque will hang in the foyer of the Stephen J. Betze Library in recognition of her contributions. Dr. Timothy Kavel, retired vice president and campus director and Abbott’s former supervisor, described Abbot as an excellent communicator who is trustworthy, honest, and competent. Originally from East Orange, N.J., Abbott moved to Delaware at the age of six, lived for five years in Bermuda as a teenager, and graduated from Caesar Rodney High School in Dover. Abbott began her career in the Delaware Economic Department, now known as the state’s Economic Development Office, in 1966. As a secretary in the industrial division, she was able to host meetings and communicate with the founders of Delaware Tech, namely Dr. William Carter and Paul K. Weatherly. In July 1973, Abbott began her 28-year tenure as an employee of Delaware Tech. She worked for a month as an administrative secretary in the Office of the President in Dover until a position as executive secretary to the campus director at the Southern Campus (now Owens) became available. She worked with the college’s

first campus director Jack F. Owens for 23 years and second campus director Dr. Kavel for five years. The title executive secretary does not begin to describe everything Abbott did during her career at the college. She was responsible for full-time personnel and payroll work, served as a secretary to the Administrative Council, worked with the Employee Enrichment Committee, participated in the planning of events, and initiated suggestion boxes around campus. Abbott also played an instrumental role in the establishment of the Owens Campus chapter of Crusade for Christ, a Christian organization for students, which is still active on campus. While working at Delaware Tech, Abbott was inspired to write, which has led to her success as a publisher, author, and inspirational speaker. Her first non-fiction book, “Fruitbearer, What Can I Do For You, Lord?” is in its third edition. She is currently working on a spiritual fantasy trilogy; the first book, “Gavin Goodfellow: The Lure of Burnt Swamp” was released in 2007. Several of her inspirational short stories have been printed in anthologies, such as “Chicken Soup for the Christian Women’s Soul.” Abbott has been extremely busy since retiring from Delaware Tech in 2002. She is the founder/director of Delamarva’s Christian Writer’s Fellowship, a member of Toastmasters International, an ordained elder and deacon in the Presbyterian

church, and co-founder of Sisters in Christ, a women’s prayer ministry. She also is managing partner of Fruitbearer Publishing, a company she and her husband formed in 1999. Abbott and her husband Drew have three children and four grandchildren.

Cross country trail to be dedicated to SHS track coach By Lynn R. Parks

Alyssa Casey, a 2008 graduate of Seaford High School and a veteran of that school’s track team, remembers Vince Morris as “a great coach.” “I had him for four years and no matter my mood, even when I felt like complaining, he had some kind of words to inspire me,” she added. “He was a very encouraging person.” Morris, who was track and cross country coach and athletic director at Seaford High, died Nov. 26, 2007, after a yearslong battle with cancer. “The way he fought that cancer, that was inspiration right there,” said Casey. “He never showed that he was sick.” “He was a great guy,” added Tim Fields, a junior at Seaford High and a member of the track and cross country teams. “He did a lot for all of us.” On Thursday, Casey and Fields were among a handful of volunteers who put up a kiosk at the Seaford High School cross country trail at the Chapel Branch wilderness area just outside Seaford. On Saturday, April 25, the trail will be dedicated as the Vince Morris Trail at Chapel Branch. “He would be real excited about this,”

Casey said. “I know that cross country was his main thing.” The April 25 dedication will feature a 5K run and walk, proceeds from which will go toward maintenance of the trail and also to the benefit of the American Cancer Society. The first 50 people to register for the run will receive safari hats — Morris was rarely seen without his worn straw hat. The event will also include presentations about the Chapel Branch site, which is maintained by the Nanticoke River Watershed Conservancy. Marlene Mervine with the conservancy said that the state’s Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program has identified a 25-acre inland dune and ridge woodland area at the site. Very few such areas remain on the peninsula, she said.

For your information: The Chapel Branch 5K Walk and Run will be Saturday, April 25, starting at 8 a.m. at the Seaford High School cross country trail at Chapel Branch, on Woodland Road just outside Seaford. Registration will start at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $15, $20 after April 20. The first 50 people to register will receive safari hats. For details, contact Harry Brake, 629-4598, ext 405, or email hbrake@seaford.k12.de.us.

New chapter of cancer support group to hold open house in May By Lynn R. Parks

house May 21 at the Cancer Care Center. “We don’t give advice,” Skala said. Rather, “a group like this is someplace a man who is sick can talk to other men who have had cancer and undergone treatment. He can find out what treatments are available and what options he has.” Skala said that another purpose of his group is to encourage men to have prostate cancer screenings. More than 186,000 men, more than 500 of them in Delaware, were expected to be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2008, according to the American Cancer Society. “We just want to make men aware of the disease and its treatment,” Skala said. “Our program is for all men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, before, during and after treatment, as well as for their wives.”

Larry Skala, Bridgeville, is a survivor of prostate cancer. And he well remembers being sick and feeling like there was no place to go for information about his illness and treatment options. “I had no place to turn to, no support group that could help out,” said Skala, who was sick in 1994 and 1995. “I did a lot of research on my own.” After his treatment, Skala found a support group, Man to Man, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. That group, which was in North Carolina where Skala was living at the time, had 300 members and was a treasure trove of information for men in all stages of treatment and recovery as well as for their wives, he said. Now, Skala has started a new chapter of Man to Man. The fledgling group, which has four members, meets once a month in the Cancer Care Center in Seaford. The group will have a booth at the annual Western Sussex Relay for Life May 15 at the Mears Campus of Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, Seaford, and is planning an open

For your information: Man to Man, a prostate cancer support group, will hold an open house Thursday, May 21, 6:30 p.m. at the Cancer Care Center, next to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, Seaford. For details, call Larry Skala, 337-3678.

Health The ethics of pushing a child too hard in sports By Dr. Anthony Policastro The April 13, 2009 Sports Illustrated had an article on what they consider a new form of child abuse. It takes the form of parents pushing their children so hard in a single sport that the children experience overuse injuries. The feeling was that this was no different than a parent injuring a child from overzealous punishment. The underlying point in the article is that even professional athletes have an off season. The purpose of that time off is for them to heal nagging injuries. Children deserve the same off season. However, some parents will have their children practice the same sport year round. When the child gets an injury, they continue pushing. There were three examples used in the article that are worth sharing. All involve what is clearly a parent not understanding that the most important job they have is to allow their child to grow in a healthy manner. The first example involved a 10 year old tennis player. She had a sore shoulder. The parents brought her to the doctor to address her shoulder problem. They needed it fixed in a hurry. That was necessary because they needed to move up to No. 5 in the State within two weeks.

to the games so I could examine injured players and allow them to go back into the game. I refused. I had two patients in one day from the same football team. Their regularly scheduled games were on Sundays. The coach scheduled an extra game on Saturday. They had both been injured in Saturday’s game. Their injuries were aggravated in Sunday’s game. They showed up in my office on Monday. I called the coach to complain. He blew me off. It was an Air Force Base football league. So I called the Wing commander and had the coach removed from his position. Parents and coaches are the adults involved in sports. The child cannot play sports without their active involvement. Pain means injury. It is the body’s way of telling us to slow down. Overuse of certain parts of the body can result in that kind of injury. The adults around the child need to know that. They need to respect that. There are two key lessons here. The first is that every sport needs an off season. The second is that children are not professional athletes and should not play when there is a significant injury. They may endanger their normal growth. Any adult causing such endangerment is really abusing the child.


MORNING STAR • ApRIl 16 - 22, 2009 a.m. and if you register on or before April 25 the cost is $40. All other start times and registration fees vary. Pre-registration is requested.

Americans forgoing dentist visits

Skipping regular dental visits could cause Americans for more serious and costly tooth and gum problems, say experts, as new data reveal many Americans chose not to see a dentist last year. “The message of the value of your teeth is not getting through,” says Matthew Messina, consumer adviser for the American Dental Association and a dentist in Cleveland. “If people consider dental care a luxury item, they’re shorting themselvles.” Results from a Gallup-Healthways poll of 355,334 Americans indicate that 34 percent did not visit a dentist last year. The ADA recommends twice-yearly cleanings and check-ups.

Bridgeville denies request to close Union Alley behind fire hall The Bridgeville Commission Monday night voted 3-2 against a resolution to close part of Union Alley. The request to close the alley (behind the fire hall) was made by the Bridgeville Fire Company, which is planning to build a 6,000-square-foot storage facility on its Delaware Avenue lot. Steve McCarron, who spoke on behalf of the fire company, asked the council to close a portion of Union Alley and deed the land to the fire company. The company owns property on both sides of the alley. McCarron cited safety reasons for his request because ambulances drive through that part of the alley and fireman walk through the alley to get to the fire hall. Two residents of the neighborhood were present at Monday’s public hearing and did not object to the proposal. The issue came before the Commission in 2007 and at the time the Commission asked the fire company to look into installing speed bumps in the alley. On Monday, Councilman Mike Collison asked for speed bumps to be installed along with a sign marking a pedestrian crossing. Collison also noted that the original plan, to add on to the existing fire hall (4’ into the alley) has changed. He also said that the town shouldn’t give land away. Commissioner Earl Greason made a motion to table the issue, but it did not receive a second. The Commission then voted 3-2 against a motion to close the alley with Commissioners Pat Correll, Bill Jefferson, and Collison voting against the proposed closure. The Commission also voted 3-1 in favor of appointing Joe Conaway to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Collison stepped down as chair of Planning and Zoning after being elected to the Commission. Commissioner Ruth Skala voted against the appointment and Collison abstained. Skala agreed with Collison that Conaway is qualified for the business, but she contended that there is a conflict of interest because Conaway is a “realtor and lobbyist.” Collison, who did not vote because he is Conaway’s son-in-law, denied any conflict and said that Conaway abstained from voting in any potential conflicts of interest when he was Commission president. The Commission also voted to reappoint Sandy Rementer to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Town Manager Bonnie Walls reported that the town’s communitywide yard sale will take place on Saturday, May 2, with the town cleanup slated for May 9. Items must be curbside by 6 a.m. on May 9. Among the items that will be collected are: furniture, household trash, and bundled limbs (4’ in length). A truck will collect freezers, refrigerators, and air conditioners if the Freon has been removed from them. Stains and paints will be collected but need to be separated from the rest of the items. Tree limbs may be taken to the

wastewater treatment plant, and there will be a scrap metal bin at town hall. Walls said some of the town’s residents need to address their yards, sheds, and the unsightly things that are being stored on their residences. “This is you chance to remove your things for free,” said Walls, who added that the code enforcement officer will be out around town after the yard sale and cleanup days take place. Walls also told the Commission that

the town will have to decline a $1,000 grant from the Delaware Preservation Fund. One of the grant requirements is that a building must be listed in a historic district. The town hall does not fall within the town’s historic district and it was built in 1967 and is not old enough to qualify for the grant. The Commission voted 5-0 in favor of an ordinance to add a four-way stop at the intersection where the new library is being constructed due to safety issues. It

also voted to approve a resolution authorizing an annexation referendum to take place on May 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at town hall. The annexation includes three properties: one is a residential property located on the edge of town limits and two are commercial properties. One of the properties includes a proposed professional building and the other would house a mix of commercial businesses.

peeler, peel off lengthwise stripes of the skin so the finished surface is covered with alternating stripes of skin and flesh. Cut the eggplant into 1/2-inch cubes. Toss the cubes with about 1 tablespoon salt, place in a colander in the sink, and weight down the cubes with a heavy plate. Set aside for 20 minutes to 1 hour. This will leach out some of the water, giving the eggplant a better texture when it cooks. 2. Pat the eggplant dry. In a large saute pan, heat about 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat. Add about one-third of the eggplant, toss to coat with the oil, and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until the eggplant has browned and is nearly cooked through. Transfer the eggplant to a plate. Repeat with the remaining eggplant in 2 batches, using about 2 tablespoons oil for each batch and adding each batch to the plate. 3. Give the saute pan a good wipe, return to medium heat, and add about 1/4 cup olive oil. Stir in the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes, or until softened. Stir in the eggplant, olives, and chile flakes and continue to simmer over medium heat. 4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook for about 1 minute less than specified on the package. When the pasta is about 2 minutes from being ready, add the tomatoes and basil to the eggplant and continue to simmer over medium heat. 5. When the pasta is ready, drain it, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water, return the pasta to the large pot over medium heat. Add the sauce and toss well, adding some of the reserved pasta water if needed to loosen the sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 minute. The sauce should be loose enough to barely pool at the bottom of the pot, but not too watery. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt if needed. 6. Serve the pasta in a warmed large bowl, family style. Drizzle with olive oil to finish and serve immediately.

reminiscing again – my favorite thing. Youngsters of today are shocked when we tell them that in the 1940s and 1950s baseball cards were a penny apiece, or there were some nickel packs and you got six cards. Today the market is largely an adult market because of the prices of the cards and the special offers of autographs, pieces of uniforms and whatever are offered. Now I’m talking to the over-50 age bracket that remembers those golden days of those one-cent cards in that green waxing paper with the sweetest smell in the world, those old sugarfilled bubble gum. Pollitt’s Store on 8th Street and later Mary Cordrey’s and the 5 & 10 cent store uptown were prime places to buy these packs of cards for me. I even remember buying some from the glass showcase at Bill North’s Restaurant and bus stop. The thrill of opening a card pack and there was Del Ennis with a stadium background, sent you into a baseball frenzy. We often picked-up soda bottles for the two cents to buy a couple of these and once in a while, to our chagrin, their supply was out and we checked the store daily for that new supply to come in. Many hours of trading those cards occupied our time. Out came the cigar box with our

cards in them and it was “I’ll give you ‘Skinny’ Brown and Gus Triandos for Robin Roberts.” Boy did I make a good deal on that one — that’s the way it went. Some cards found their way into our bicycle-spokes and the sound was beautiful, or so we thought. Once in a great while, when we had 50 cents or maybe even a dollar, I can still feel the enjoyment of opening those one-cent packs slowly one at a time. One year I traded Randy Wiley — a Mickey Mantle for a Richie Ashburn — boy did I get him on that one. Well, there are so many reasons to enjoy spring, the gardens being planted, trees budding and so much more, but I have just given you another reason many of us enjoyed spring many years ago. Saturday evening an ambulance from Blades Fire Department and County Paramedics were called to my mom’s home, and I would say they were there in 10 minutes or less and I got a firsthand example of how dedicated and professional they all are at their job. I can only say thanks to all and oh yes, Mom is back home now. Enjoy the week folks. Ah … if I could only open one more of those one-cent baseball cards!

Exploring Christianity

Did you ever wonder why the world is changing so dramatically? Does it seem as if your Christian faith is undergoing a massive transformation? The Great Emergence: How Christianity is Changing and Why, a book by Phyllis Tickle, explores these questions and more. A six-week conversation on Tickle’s book will begin on Tuesday evening April 28 at 7 p.m. at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Parish Hall, on the corner of 2nd and Market St., Lewes. The event is open to the public. The Rev. Pat Bird and Rita Nelson, retired Episcopal priests, will lead the conversation.

It is recommended that participants read Part I prior to the beginning of the series. For registration or more information, call St. Peter’s office at 302-

645-8479 or email stpeterslewes@verizon. net and put “Emergence” in the subject line.

The group is a non-profit daycare and 100% of the proceeds will go directly back into the classrooms for new toys, games, science and art activities and items on wish lists. The following donations are being accepted: items to sell at the yard sale; toys, games and books to use in the classroom; clothes to stock the closet for needy families; monetary donations; and baked goods. Area businesses may get involved by donating gift certificates that can be auctioned or sold, or used to purchase items for the classrooms. All donations may be dropped off at the daycare, or mailed to: 425 E Stein Hwy. Seaford, DE 19973.

Prayer Breakfast

Tickets are now on sale for the 32nd annual Sussex County Prayer Breakfast, to be held Friday, May 15, with Debra Puglisi Sharp as this year’s guest speaker. The victim of a violent crime now turned motivational speaker, the Delaware resident will talk about summoning the courage to survive a traumatic event. Joining Ms. Puglisi Sharp as this year’s musical entertainment will be the awardwinning Gold Heart bluegrass band.

In April 1998, Ms. Puglisi Sharp faced every woman’s worst nightmare. While tending her garden one afternoon, a man crept into her home where he lay in wait, eventually killing her husband and then abducting her. Held captive and assaulted in the criminal’s home over five days, she managed to wriggle free of the ropes that imprisoned her, called 911 and escaped. This year’s breakfast is once again hosted by the Sussex County Council. Ticket sales and community sponsorships from individuals, organizations and businesses – not County funding – pay for this annual event. This year, former County Councilman Dale R. Dukes is volunteering his time to coordinate the breakfast. While seating is limited, tickets are still available for the Prayer Breakfast. Tickets are $12 per person, and are available on a first-come-first-served basis. For tickets or more information, call 302-855-7743.

Don’t you think that if God was omnipotent He would kill Satan and eliminate all evil?

God is omnipotent or all-powerful. There is evil. In The Bible we see that as the curtain of time is drawn, there is, at the present, an event that is on-going. It appears that there is an agreement in place where limitations are in effect, whether by force or permission is unclear, between God and Satan, good and evil. In this event, eternal beings are being created bound with or limited by the physical dimension for a limited time in which these eternal beings have fr free choice with the opportunity to decide for themselves if they will be, forever, sons of God or sons of Satan. Evil exists, but so does Good. One can not be without the other. This is an eternal dualism. For God to rid the world of evil, then He would have to take us all because Paul wrote “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:6 But God has made a way for us. “whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Legislators identify $13m savings Following swift action by the Senate and House this week, Gov. Jack Markell recently signed legislation into law that reduces the shortfall the state is facing for the current fiscal year. Despite the $12.9 million of savings in the legislation, Delaware is still facing a $30.8 million shortfall in the current year and an historic $750 million deficit for fiscal 2010. Both figures could increase if revenue estimates worsen over the next two months. “I appreciate the General Assembly acting so quickly to help the state save money. We still have a long way to go,” Markell said. “Balancing our budget for this year and next will require significant amounts of shared sacrifice. The decisions we will have to make between now and the end of June will not be easy, but these are difficult times that demand difficult choices. We must and will rise to the challenge.” Senate Bill 69 identifies savings from several areas, including unspent money allocated for capital projects, interest from

special fund accounts, funding appropriated for minor capital improvement projects at various state agencies and surplus money in the E-911 account. “The next round of cuts will be harder because we may have to take money from projects that might be ready to start,” said Sen. Robert Venables, D-Laurel, co-chair of the Joint Bond Bill Committee. “I think the hill gets a lot steeper from here.” Joint Bond Bill Committee co-chair Rep. Helene M. Keeley added that while the “mini-bond bill” would not completely eliminate the fiscal 2009 shortfall, it is extremely important for the committee to remain vigilant at reverting funds wherever and whenever possible. “We must continue to comb through all of our funds and look for money that we can revert to help decrease this revenue shortfall,” said Rep. Keeley, D-Wilmington South. “While $12.9 million won’t fully close the 2009 gap, it takes a sizable chunk out of the shortfall and brings us one step closer to balancing this year’s budget. Every little bit we can revert is that much less that we need to find later.”

The Sussex Tech JROTC Raven Battalion participated in the Ryan Long Memorial Drill Meet held at Seaford High School on Feb. 21 and came home with a coveted first place award. First to compete was the first year squad inspection group, led by Cadet Private First Class Patra Silvia of Laurel. Next, the varsity armed drill team competed under the command of Cadet Captain Nathan Rider of Bridgeville. When they went on the drill floor, each carried a seven pound rifle, which challenged their performance. Led by Cadet Private First Class Tara Windels of Laurel, the first year regulation unarmed squad had a case of nerves but gathered themselves and performed as one unit. Cadet Private First Class Joshua Loockerman of Bridgeville said he was confident his unit did well. Cadet Command Sergeant Major Paul Romer of Seaford led the varsity color guard in the next competition. As the best of the best from the Raven Battalion, the cadets were a constantly connected unit that never ceased to move as one. Cadet Private First Class Austin Purdy of Fenwick Island described it as a “legendary” feat. Following in the footsteps of their older counterparts, the first year color guard was the next group to compete. At noon, the Seaford JROTC Parent Booster Club served lunch as cadets mingled with each other and made new friends. Besides the Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force cadets participated in the drill meet. After lunch, Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Lori Simmons of Rehoboth led the brightest of the Raven Battalion before the criticizing search of the inspector in the varsity inspection. While to an outsider, it appeared to be a casual conversation between each cadet and the inspector, cadets did not drop their guard as they were questioned about the uniform they wore.

The Ravens’ responses were only one point away from tying for third place, and the inspector had no negative words for the Battalion. The more experienced cadets took center stage in the platoon unarmed regulation marching, led by Cadet Major Rider. During his first time at commanding, C/ MAJ Rider’s worries were proven unfounded as the uniform body showcased the best of the older cadets’ talents. Stiff competition met the cadets who participated in the exhibition drill. Led by C/LTC Simmons, they began with arrow march as they reported in before going through a variety of complex marches that displayed precision and perfect timing by those who participated. “We used all of our combined creativity to successfully win over the judges with an excellent performance,” said C/ LTC Simmons upon receiving the first place plaque. The knock-out drill was the final event of the day and was optional for any cadet who chose to participate at the cost of $2 a ticket. Introduced with the words “please don’t panic,” the drill began as a test of the cadets’ skill in every aspect of marching. The Marines and guardians who had earlier served as judges began a sweeping attack on the mass of cadets who filled the drill floor, releasing every bit of left over energy into creating noise and mayhem. As the group was slowly narrowed down, representatives from the Raven Battalion were steadily weeded out until Cadet Private First Class Austin Purdy of Fenwick Island was the last standing from Sussex Tech. The drill meet is held each year in memory of Ryan Long, a former JROTC cadet from Seaford High School who had previously been their executive officer in his student years. He went on to serve his country and died in its defense after being deployed to Afghanistan and killed while on patrol.

Jones faced David Lowe of Salisbury in the all door slammer Super Pro final. Jones hit a .003 reaction light and was dead-on his dial with a 9.460/136.21 on a 9.46 dial for a near perfect run and the win. Lowe raced hard and broke out with a 9.052/147.83 on a 9.06 dial. Semi-finalist was Jerry Russell of Dover who lost to Lowe. Charles DeHaven of Salisbury has made it to every final round in Pro this season but Sunday he met his match in Wade.

It only took three weeks for Hudson to get back into winning form. Hudson defeated Billy McLamb of Pittsville to win in Street with a run of 12.312/101.71 on a 12.26 dial. McLamb broke out with a 16.545 on a 16.55 dial. In Import Isdell caught McKenzy Krout sleeping at the start to win in Import. Isdell ran a 15.049/89.30 on a 14.82 while Krout broke out with a 15.118 on a 15.20 dial. The Bike Trophy final matched Webber against Jack Moore.

Woodbridge soccer continued Raiders’ defense shut them down. “When you start eight sophomores and freshmen inexperience is going to come back and get you,” said Woodbridge head coach Scott Bleile. Megan Sirkis recorded 14 saves in goal for the Raiders during Tuesday’s game. The sophomore, who is new to the position, was fooled by the wind on the Panthers’ second goal, which sailed over her head.

“She’s made huge strides, she’s still learning,” Bleile said. “Overall we’re doing OK. They’re learning. Aggressiveness is the key. It’s a matter of learning now. They’ve got to learn how to win.” The Raiders have just one senior and two juniors on the team. With some of the tougher games (against Henlopen North teams) out of the way, Bliele is looking forward to the rest of the season. “If we play like we did today we’ll be in every game,” said Bleile.

Wesley’s Street named CAC Player of the Week Wesley College’s Megan Street of Bridgeville was named the Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Week after her performance in six games for the Wolverines last week. During the week, Street hit .444, hurling a pair of critical victories as the Wolverines won their way into the 2009 CAC playoffs. She tossed her second shutout of the season in a win against Stevenson and added a pitching win Friday at Gallaudet that helped clinch a postseason nod. Offensively, Street’s biggest performance was against Widener, where she doubled and homered.

The wind and temperature didn’t stop the Woodbridge Raiders from coming to Seaford for the high school softball game last Tuesday. Seaford pulled ahead, 6-5, in the sixth inning and was able to hold on to the win. Seaford started freshman pitcher Kaitlyn Hitch who stood up to the challenge and struck out five Woodbridge batters. After the game the Seaford girls drenched coach Richard Dixon with the cooler of water. “I could not be prouder of these girls,” Dixon said. The teams battled throughout the game, keeping it close because of several well executed defensive plays. Woodbridge put the first two runs on the board and Seaford answered in the bottom of the second with Courtney Rementer’s RBI single. In the third, Woodbridge took a 3-1 lead on RBI single by VanVorst. In the bottom of the fifth inning Katie Katie Wesslehoff Wesslehoff scored on Megan Milligan’s RBI single. Woodbridge was hurt by a play at home plate when a throw by Wesslehoff

beat Woodbridge’s J. Polite for the second out of the inning. The Raiders did not give up and fought back by scoring two more runs when Seaford made two throwing errors. Seaford’s Becky Skipper, Katie Kaitlyn Hitch Hickey and Shannon Wright reached base on singles. Wesslehoff drove both runs in on another single and Seaford took the lead 6-5. With two outs and Van Vorst on base Wroten smacked a double but over ran second base and was tagged out on the throw by Wright. Assistant Coach Maureen Keller said, “I am so proud of the team as a whole. They came together and got the win.” Coach Dixon added, “At the beginning of the season, we said if we believe it, we can do it…and we did it.” Seaford softball team loses to Indian River, 10-0- Seaford’s Haley Quillen tripled for one of her team’s five hits in last Wednesday’s loss to Indian River. Sports editor’s note- The Woodbridge coach could not be reached to get the first names of the Raiders’ players. The Star also did not receive pre-season information from this team.

James Smith collected three hits including a double and a home run, drove in six runs, and scored three times and Seth Hastings doubled to lead the Ravens. The Lady Ravens won on a two-run home run by Brooke Tull in the bottom of the eighth inning of Wednesday’s game.

Ravens fall to Indians- Sussex Tech’s Abby Atkins scored on a feed from Leeanne Rowe in last Thursday’s 7-1 loss to Indian River. Coach Thomson steps down- Sussex Tech varsity boys’ basketball coach and athletic director Joe Thomson announced his resignation as the Ravens’ basketball coach last week. Thomson, who plans to concentrate on his duties as athletic director and transportation director, went 52-40 in four years as head coach after serving as an assistant coach for Jerry Kobasa for three years. “Over the past three years we have added three new sports as we expand our current offerings and programs and this takes additional time to manage,” Thomson said in a press release. “We also are currently involved in a five year plan to upgrade our facilities. This will involve more allocation of time as I spearhead the fundraising efforts in this area as well.” The Ravens went 15-8 and made the state tournament in Thomson’s first year (200506) and improved to 16-7 the following year, also making the state tourney. Thomson and the Ravens posted an 18-6 mark in 2007-08 and advanced to the Elite 8 at the University of Delaware. Last season Sussex Tech underwent a rebuilding year with no seniors and mostly freshmen and sophomores seeing time. The team finished with a 3-19 record. Thomson said he expects big things from the program in the future, but is looking forward to working with all of the school’s athletes as athletic director. He also plans to be involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and coaches ministry programs.

Top ten things you should know about depression

Dr. Judy Pierson, licensed clinical psychologist and bereavement counselor for Delaware Hospice, was the keynote speaker on Friday, April 3, at the Lunch Bunch Lecture Series at the Family Support Center in Milford. Participants learned about “The Top Ten Things You Should Know About Depression.” 1. Depression affects approximately 14 million adults in America today or nearly one out of six adults over a lifetime. 2. It is a very real medical condition and not caused by personal weakness or a refusal to use will power to end suffering. 3. Depression might be caused by biochemical, genetic or environmental factors. 4. Depression isn’t the same as occasionally “having the blues.” 5. Symptoms of depression might be changes in appetite leading to weight loss or gain; insomnia or excessive sleep; fatigue; feelings of worthlessness or guilt; inability to concentrate or make decisions; feelings of hopelessness; loss of interest in daily activities; persistent sadness; thoughts of suicide; and selfloathing.

6. Depression can actually lower your IQ because it impairs concentration so profoundly.

or careful planning, I’m not certain. A couple months after the thumbpounding episode, my parents received in the mail a box containing Christmas presents from my brother and his wife. My sister, my mother and I each received the same thing: a set of high-quality stainless steel knives. I promptly removed my knives from their box and inserted them into a knife block that I already had, storing in a drawer the knives that were previously housed in the block and that are inferior to the new ones. Soon after, I was using one of the new knives to slice potatoes and, having forgotten about the extremely sharp edge, cut past the flesh of the potato and into my thumb. Ironic, I thought, grabbing a clean cloth towel to wrap around my bleeding finger, that a knife that my brother gave me would result in an injury to the same body part that several months earlier he had injured. But soon the bleeding stopped, I carried on with the potato dish I was preparing and the opportunity to learn a lesson about laughing at another’s misfortune passed. This weekend, nearly six months after my brother injured his thumb, another opportunity presented itself. And I announced to all who are listening, including the sneaky knives, that I have accepted that opportunity and that there is therefore no need for any additional lessons. My husband and I had gone to my sister’s home for the Easter weekend. I was in her kitchen, pulling ham off the bone,

when my left hand slipped off the meat and into one of her new stainless steel knives — not even from my set; you can see how devious this plot is — that was lying on the counter. It immediately sliced into my ring finger, just above the first knuckle. My knees just a tad weak, I washed my hands twice, making sure all the ham detritus was washed down the sink, then wrapped my finger in a napkin. With the help of my brother-in-law, who had a stash of Band-Aids in his briefcase, I applied a bandage. Throughout the rest of the evening, I held my finger tightly in my other hand, applying pressure according to instructions from my husband. A day later, my finger is still sore but from all appearances on the way to healing. And a lesson that should already have been part of my deep understanding — that another person’s pain is not my amusement — has finally sunk in, perhaps through one of the two cuts on my fingers. My brother’s thumb is avenged. The knives that he sent this way for Christmas can declare their mission accomplished and focus on the intended charge of kitchen knives, aiding in the preparation of food. And I, a wiser and kinder person, can start thinking about my brother’s birthday, just five months away, and what I will be sending him for a present. A shiny, new, extra-heavy hammer, perhaps, maybe even of the sledge type.

Gas Lines Prices may increase slightly

The good news for consumers is that gasoline prices have remained relatively stable this past week with the national average price of gasoline settling at $2.05 Friday, which is virtually unchanged from earlier in the week. For the 11th time in the last 14 weeks, gasoline prices continued to increase, albeit slightly. This puts the price of gasoline just about 10 cents higher than it was last month. After last week’s rapid price swings, oil prices fell to open the week on continued uncertainty over which direction the US economy was heading. Lingering doubts over whether demand for oil and gasoline will pick up later this year, coupled with weak consumer spending, continue to keep prices right around $50 per barrel, closing at $52.24 last Thursday (the NYMEX was closed Friday for the Good Friday holiday). Oil prices have been in a relative holding pattern for the past couple of

Police Journal ROTC instructor arrested

Delaware State Police have arrested a 49-year-old Lincoln man for several charges stemming from an inappropriate relationship he maintained with a 16-year-old Seaford girl. The man, Timothy J. McDorman, was employed as an ROTC instructor at Seaford High School and the victim was one of his McDorman students. The investigation began on April 8 when the teen victim’s mother notified authorities of an alarming text message she located on her daughter’s cellular telephone that morning. The message clearly indicated the sender was involved in sexual activity with her daughter. The mother was able to determine that the sender was Mr. McDorman. School officials and police were immediately notified and an ensuing investigation revealed that McDorman did in fact send the sexually explicit text message to the victim. Additionally, investigators learned the two were involved in a relationship since October 2008 that involved the victim sending several nude photographs of her to McDorman’s cellular telephone. The relationship continued and in March of this year, the pair engaged in sexual intercourse. At the conclusion of the investigation, detectives have identified 15 sexually explicit photographs that were received by McDorman depicting the victim unclothed. McDorman was arrested and charged with 15 counts of using a computer to unlawfully depict a child engaging in a prohibited sexual act (felony), one count of fourth degree rape (felony), and 15 counts of possession of child pornography (felony). He was released after posting a $100,000 secured bail. McDorman, who began his position as ROTC instructor at Seaford High School on Sept. 23, 2008, resigned on April 8.

Driver allegedly punches student

On Tuesday, April 7, the Delaware State Police school resource officer assigned to Kirk Middle School in Newark investigated the assault of a 14-year old student by the school bus driver, David V. Burns Jr., 62, of Wilmington. The investigation revealed that Burns was operating the school bus on its normal route following the conclusion of the school day. The student, who was seated in the rear of the school bus, made a statement targeted at Burns’ driving. Burns invited the student to approach the front of the school bus. Once the school bus was pulled to the shoulder of the roadway in a residential area, the student approached the front of the bus. A verbal exchange ensued at which time Burns punched the student in the face. The student exited the bus and was transported by his family for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Burns was formally charged with one count of third degree assault (misdemeanor). He was arraigned and issued a $250 unsecure bond with a no contact order pending a later trial date. Burns resigned from his position with Advanced Student Transportation.

Woman charged with embezzling

Delaware State Police have arrested Jennifer A. Creamer, 43, of the unit block of McCormick Boulevard, Newark, for embezzling more than a half a million dollars from Sheridan Ford Dealership located on Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington. Creamer, a former employee of the Creamer dealership, started her own business called GSC Services, Inc., in 2001. In 2001, she developed a partnership with the dealership who agreed to outsource their payroll to her business. In this capacity, Creamer was responsible for transferring money from the Sheridan Ford account to a separate entity where employees had their personal accounts established. While transferring funds from the corporate account to the personal accounts, Creamer would transfer unauthorized funds into her personal account. The dealership completed an audit of their financial records which indicated that Creamer embezzled more than $500,000 since 2001. Creamer responded to Delaware State Police Troop 2 where she was formally charged with the following crimes: five counts of theft of $1,000 or greater (felony); two counts of theft where the property value is $100,000 or more (felony); two counts of theft where property value is greater than $50,000 Less Than $100,000 (felony); nine counts of falsifying business records to make or cause false entry (misdemeanor). Creamer was released on $270,000 unsecured bond pending a later trial date. Anyone with additional information concerning any potentially fraudulent activity by Creamer is asked to contact Troop 2 at 302-834-2620 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.

Charged with indecent exposure

Delaware State Police have arrested a 56-year-old Hartly man for several offenses after police learned he was exposing his genitals to several people, including five juveniles. The investigation revealed that Stephen T. Pardee Jr., who resides on Brittany Lane Pardee in Hartly, had been exposing himself to several persons within the Amish community between April 2008 and April 2009. The victims reside near

Pardee. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with five counts of first degree indecent exposure (misdemeanor), five counts of lewdness (misdemeanor), and three counts of second degree indecent exposure (misdemeanor). He was released on an $11,500 unsecured bond and ordered no contact with the victims.

Greenwood man arrested

Delaware State Police have arrested a 40 year old Greenwood man for drug offenses after he was stopped for speeding and found to be in possession of 20 methadone pills. On April 10 at 12:25 p.m., a patrol trooper from Troop Williams 5 in Bridgeville was conducting speed enforcement on Coverdale Road south of Jones Dogwood Drive when he encountered a 1991 GMC Sonoma pick-up traveling 55 mph in a marked 40 mph zone. A traffic stop was conducted and Bruce A. Williams was identified as the operator. During the traffic stop, the trooper observed a clear plastic baggie in the center console of the truck that contained several white pills. An investigation revealed the pills were methadone and that Williams did not have a prescription and did not possess a proper container for the 20 pills. In addition, Williams was in possession of a large sum of money that he could not account for. Williams was arrested for possession with intent to deliver methadone, maintaining a vehicle for keeping controlled

substances and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $11,700 unsecured bail.

Middletown teen dies in crash

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating the fatal crash involving a 17-year-old Middletown girl after she failed to stop on the command of police officers and rammed into a Smyrna Police Cruiser. At 1:10 a.m. on April 12 a uniformed trooper attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a 2008 Ford F250 pick-up on US 13 in the area of Blackbird Forest Road for suspicion of DUI. The operator ignored the emergency lights and siren of the police cruiser and failed to stop for the trooper continuing southbound on US 13 in the limits of Smyrna. The operator then made an abrupt attempt to turn west onto Smyrna-Leipsic Road when the Ford failed to negotiate the turn and crashed into a fence on the southwest side of the intersection. A Smyrna police officer, in a fully marked police cruiser with lights and siren activated, pulled behind the pick-up in an effort to apprehend the operator. The officer, along with a DSP trooper, exited their patrol vehicles when the operator of the Ford pick-up accelerated the vehicle in reverse ramming the Smyrna police cruiser nearly striking the approaching officers.

pAGE 55

The Ford pick-up then fled west on Sunnyside Road. As officers were attempting to catch up to the fleeing vehicle, the Ford exited the north edge of the roadway and overturned several times. As a result of the crash, the operator, who was later identified as Natacha A. Mitchell, 17, of Middletown, died at the scene from injuries sustained in the crash. She was not wearing a seatbelt. Preliminary investigation revealed Mitchell was operating the vehicle with a revoked driver’s license. The crash remains under investigation.

Democrats honor the Chapmans

Karen and Tom Chapman received the Sussex County Democrat Couple of the Year award in honor of their many years of dedicated service to the party.

The Sussex Democratic County Committee held their annual spring dinner on Saturday, April 4, at the Bridgeville Firehouse. The Democratic VIPs included former Governor Ruth Ann Minner, former Lieutenant Governor John Carney, Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn, Senator Thurman Adams, President Pro Tem, Delaware State Senate, U. S. senator Edward Kaufman and many other Democratic office holders, and party officers. The Democrat party rank and file welcomed speakers such as Matt Denn, Lieutenant Governor, and others who said that the Democrats, both nationally and in Delaware, control the government and must find solutions to the vexing economic problems. Denn praised Governor Jack Markell saying that he faced a tough job on the

economy and has the challenging task of cutting the state budget. He said that, as former Governor Minner knows, that the “Governor’s budget, which goes to the legislature, will look different when approved by the legislature.” He also promised that Delaware’s state testing will be changed. Senator Kaufman, who was appointed to fill Senator Joe Biden’s Senate seat, reported on Biden’s role in the presidential transition. He complimented Biden on a recent foreign policy speech. Kaufman is looking forward to representing Delaware in the United States Senate. Pat Ewing, newly elected Sussex County Democratic Chair, presented a plaque to Tom and Karen Chapman honoring them as Sussex County’s Democrat Couple of the Year for their many years of dedicated service to the party.

Opinion Guest Column SHS supports Relay for Life

Why does Seaford have a Pre-Relay Festival, support Relay for Life, and create so many outlying activities? Great questions! After several years of supporting the Leukemia Foundation, I moved to Delaware and met Kate Baltz. This would change my life in many ways. She inspired me to not be content with mediocrity, make a difference and be restless with the way events are around us. Her spirit challenged others to move forward and create a community of excitement, service and stewardship for the Seaford community. The night of the 2007 Relay, the last year for chair Kate Baltz, current Relay for Life Chair Alison Schwinn came up to me with tears in her eyes and told me she wanted to be the new leader of Relay, for the fighting spirit she has watched her grandfather power through. Isn’t that what Relay is all about? Alison continues to represent this fighting spirit that students such as Kate Baltz and Christina Stevenson have carried on through the years. Together, we can fight against cancer. Kate Baltz and I created the Pre Relay Festival, an event that involved the school and prepared individuals for what was to come the night of Relay for Life. Take a look at what will be at the high school thanks to the combined efforts of the student Relay Team, Driver’s Ed teacher Richard Dixon, student impact groups such as SADD, PAVE and YELL, and the Seaford faculty and FCA in Dover: Country Club Golf Scramble, Mr. Relay Beauty Competition, Basketball Tournament, Volleyball Tournament, Dr. Bett’s 5k, Hot Rod Competition, Motorcycle Competition, Outdoor Stage with area musicians, exciting vendors from Salisbury to Dover, barbecues all day, largest yard sale of the year, Kids Corner (a huge center of activity that will be representing the Baltimore Aquarium), a 200 foot whale students can walk through representing MERR, facepainting, games galore, prizes, a climbing wall, and much more! Pre Relay is the perfect celebration of life that encircles the whole community. This year, each tournament is dedicated to those who have fought against cancer. The Relay Team has put together a scrapbooking team where they are memorializing individuals that continue to fight and have fought against cancer. If anyone is interested in representing someone, contact me at 629-4587, ext. 405. For more information, visit the Relay home page at http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=12723. To volunteer, sponsor one of the tournaments or be a part of the High School teams (The Seaford High and The Seaford Higher) in planning the Pre Relay events, contact me at the number listed above.

Board responds to arrest

On April 8, our Seaford High School community was devastated by the alleged inappropriate actions of former Naval Science Instructor Tim McDorman. As soon as we learned of this matter, we began our investigation which led to his arrest and severance from the Seaford School District. Please note that Mr. McDorman completed a successful criminal background check before his hire and survived the Navy screening process. We appreciate the cooperation of the Delaware State Police and the patience of our extended community in this situation. We will continue to work with the authorities until this matter is brought to closure. Our students’ safety and welfare are always our top concern. We will continue to enact any and all measures to ensure their well-being. As always, our guidance counselors are available for any support our students may need through this difficult time. If you have any concerns or questions regarding this matter, contact Seaford High School Principal Clarence Davis at 6294587, ext. 235. Seaford Board of Education

A step in the right direction

Seaford AARP Chapter 1084 had representatives attend the Georgetown college for a listening session with Senator Tom Carper on April 7. Opening up to hear about the most pressing issues for older Delawareans is certainly a step in the right direction. AARP members nationwide believe that health care reform is urgent and must be the nation’s top priority. Change to make affordable coverage options available to all is especially urgent for AARP’s 50 to 64-year-old population. They are especially vulnerable as the fastest-growing part of the uninsured population in America – and Delaware is no exception. The fact that Senator Carper is willing to listen to the public’s voice gives our members a sense of hope for the future. The more voices heard, the more information he has to work out the problems.

All letters should include the writer’s name, address and phone number for verification purposes. Names will be published. No unsigned letters will be published.

Send your letters to Morning Star Publications, PO Box 1000, Seaford, DE 19973, or you may email editor@mspublications.com

This was the first of three listening sessions he has planned for the state of Delaware on health care. We reside in the First State, and are known for leading the way with great arts, culture, shopping and nature. However, AARP would like to propose we are first in something else – the first state to ensure that everyone has access to affordable health care. This was the topic of conversation at this meeting. Many proposals were made as to what needs to be changed, and even some solutions for improving today’s health care system. On behalf of all the AARP members, I want to say thank you to Senator Carper. Gladys Bonowicz

Fire the committee

Since I wrote my letter to the paper two week’s ago on excessive executive compensation, I received the normal proxy and related material from Kellogg and DuPont. The vast majority of the information contained in the proxies relates to executive compensation and would take a CPA to actually understand what it says. Perhaps it represents the classic “If you have to reveal something, inundate the reader with material.” The upshot for Kellogg is that the Board of Directors members each receive approximately $250,000/year in compensation. The top executive, David Mackay, took in $12.3 million in 2008. Four other bigwigs took in between $2.8 million and $4.1 million. Among the Board of Directors are two interesting figures. First, is

Dr. Benjamin Carson, who appears completely out of place, simply added for window dressing. Second, is John Dillon. Dillon was formerly the CEO of International Paper Company. He is also a director on the boards of Caterpillar Inc. and E.I. DuPont, my former employer. Dillon is on the compensation committee at Kellogg and also chairs the compensation committee at DuPont, where he picked up another $200,000 in compensation in 2008. His bread is clearly well buttered to make everyone at the top happy. The chairman and CEO of DuPont is Charles “Chad” Holliday, who at one time was my next door neighbor here in Seaford. Chad has done quite well for himself, with total compensation in 2008 of $8.3 million. Four other top executives at DuPont took in between $3.6 million and $4.7 million. Chad’s present value of accumulated pension benefits isn’t too shabby either at $23.1 million. So, how does DuPont come up with determining how much a top executive should be compensated? They do a market analysis of representative “large companies with median revenue comparable to DuPont’s,” (quote from 2009 proxy statement). While claimed to only be used “to validate the results of the competitive market analysis,” DuPont looks at a peer group of companies for guidance. Among this group of 20 companies is Caterpillar Inc., the third company on which John Dillon is a member of the Board of Directors. Doesn’t this sound just a tad bit too cozy? As I said in my previous letter to the paper, I feel pretty powerless to stop this ongoing rifling of the till. However, one tactic I have decided on in these cases is to vote against every board member on the compensation committee. If this sort of thing could develop a grass roots movement, it might force a real change in executive compensation. It is that or get something through Congress to turn this around. The stock holders need to have a much more powerful voice in deciding fair executive compensation. Right now, we are powerless. Richard T. Eger

Here’s a list of reasons to participate in the Relay for Life Why does the High School Relay? Why does anyone Relay? We do it for the long list of names that we have lost to cancer. We do it because we’ve watched our loved ones suffer enough. On our team, we have many athletes with strong ties to Coach Vince Morris. The loss of him in our school’s community was hard on many of us. We also have four of Dr. Susan Betts’ nieces and nephews on our Relay team, as well as many

City to join prescription discount drug program By Lynn R. Parks Residents of Seaford will soon be able to get discounts on prescription medicines. The Seaford City Council Tuesday night voted to join a program offered by the National League of Cities that will provide residents of the town an average of 20 percent off the costs of their medicines. Enrollment in the program is free to the city and to its residents. There are no age or income requirements. The program will start up in about eight weeks. The city will advertise the program through its Web site, HYPERLINK “http://www.seafordde.com” www. seafordde.com, and through its newsletters.

Final Word people whose lives she touched. James Betts says that he Relays “with hopes to find a cure.” We all have our own stories of how cancer affects our life. I have watched my grandfather go in and out of hospitals for cancer since I was seven years old. This is why I felt so strongly about this organization and volunteered to be team captain. Each and every one of us has our own reasons for Relaying. This bond has brought us together to help raise money to find a cure for this horrible disease that has claimed so many lives. In this world, it is very important to highlight the good that people are doing. I ask that you please support our cause and more importantly, please support the American Cancer Society and Seaford High School. It takes a community to raise a child and it takes all of us to find a cure for cancer. Alison Schwinn SHS, Relay chair
