Century Window Fashion owner prepares to shut down business By Lynn R. Parks
Century Window Fashion Inc. in the Seaford Industrial Park started operations in this building in September 2009. But now, its owner, Louis Chan, is saying that he will close the business and declare bankruptcy.
tion and I am certain that the Small Business Administration has followed established procedures and acted in accordance with the established policy guidelines,” she said. “Throughout the process, the [SBA] provided ongoing and valuable advice to the borrower and the [SBA] is satisfied that this loan application has been handled consistently within the guidelines and requirements of [its] 504 loan program,” she added. Chan, 44, is a native of Hong Kong and came to the United States about 30 years ago. Century Window Fashion, which he started in Maspeth, N.Y., in Queens, 15 years ago, makes custom window blinds. He decided to move the Queens operation to Delaware, he said, because
labor costs here are lower and because “the people are nicer.” He entered into a sales contract with the city of Seaford in February 2006; after the city extended the sales contract several times because of delays in loan paperwork, Chan and the city settled in early 2008. He had loans from WSFS and Discover Bank totaling $3 million and a commitment from SBA to assume 50 percent of the loans once the building renovations were completed. The company moved to Seaford in September of last year. In August of last year, the CDC handling Chan’s loan asked him for a business plan. After he sent that, the agency told him that it wanted to monitor Century’s progress for Continued to page four

Business in Seaford Industrial Park ready to shut down Continued from page one
three months before finalizing the loan. In an e-mail dated October 30, William Abernathy, director of the CDC, asked for evidence that the sales “are increasing to higher historical levels” and that “operational expenses are declining as a percentage of revenue as a result of the move to Seaford.” Abernathy also suggested that Chan lease part of the industrial park building to generate additional revenue. “If the months of November and December could provide some positive commentary on the direction of the company, I would be pleased to request funding by the SBA,” he wrote. But those months did not go well. “I am not a new company — I’ve been in business for 15 years,” Chan said. Even so, he had brand new employees in Seaford who needed training and was facing a bad economy, he said. And November and December are not prime times for buying household furnishings, he added. Now, Chan said, the CDC wants the Century tax return for 2009. That return has not been filed yet and he doesn’t have the $20,000 that his accountant would charge to complete the forms, he said. Chan said that he can’t understand why, if it needs assurance that Century will succeed, the SBA can’t look at records from the past 15 years of his business. “We have been successful,” he said, so successful that in New York, Signature Bank gave Century a $500,000 line of credit.
That line of credit was canceled and the $420,000 debt called in when Chan moved his business to Delaware, he said, only exacerbating his financial woes. “The bank said that it had no interest in a company in Delaware,” he said. Adding to his financial difficulties even more: escrow accounts with WSFS and Discover Bank totaling $250,000 that the banks set up in case renovations to the Seaford building ran over cost and that they won’t release until the SBA loan is finalized. “I can’t get a line of credit and my money is in escrow,” Chan said. He has been paying employees and vendors from money coming in from customers. “I have been running on accounts receivable and that is coming to an end this week,” he said. Chan, who put up his business inventory and accounts receivable as well as his Long Island home as collateral for the loans he needed to move to Seaford, expects to lose all of that. He still owns a company in China that employs about 150 people, he said. That company will not be affected by this bankruptcy. He said that he is extremely disappointed with the way things have worked out. But he speaks very calmly and even, on occasion, manages a laugh. “What else are you going to do?” he said. “Get angry and go out and hit someone? You don’t help anything by doing that.”
The saga of Seaford’s spec building By Lynn R. Parks
When the state built the speculative building in the Seaford Industrial Park, it was intended to attract jobs to the area. The state mandated that the company that bought it had to promise 50 jobs, had to provide medical benefits and had to offer a starting wage of $13.10 an hour. In addition, the city, which provided the land on which the building was constructed, had to maintain it and the grounds and had to spend $20,000 a year to advertise its availability. That was in 1999. Six years later, the city had received only six inquiries about the building. Finally, in January 2005, 84 Lumber announced that it would buy the building for its full asking price, $1.471 million, and build floor and roof trusses there. The company said that it would eventually hire 100 people, twice what the state mandated, and that it would offer medical benefits. But the starting wage at the 84 Lumber facility would be less than the state required. Including medical insurance and training, employee compensation would start at just $10.62 an hour. The state balked. And while it was considering the sale, 84 Lumber withdrew its offer, telling the city that the building no longer suited its needs. A year later, Century Window Fashion, Queens, N.Y., said that it was willing to pay the full asking price for the spec building. But it would only employ about 30 people and, like 84 Lumber, would offer a starting wage of less than $13.10 an hour. Regular employees would start at $8 an hour and managers at up to $20 an hour. To get around the state’s requirements, the city purchased the building from the state and then immediately sold it to Century Window Fashion. Doing so invalidated the city’s memorandum of understanding with the state that stipulated what kind of business could buy the building. From the sale, the city received $135,000 for the 9.75 acres in the industrial park associated with the building. That amount has been paid in full. Century Window Fashion started operations in September 2009. But now, its owner, Louis Chan, is saying that he will close the business and declare bankruptcy.

Bridgeville votes down business licenses, fees By Mike McClure When the Bridgeville Commission entered Monday night’s meeting, the majority of the commissioners were in favor of a proposed ordinance that would have required the registration and licensing of businesses in town. After hearing from a large number of business owners and residents who were against the licenses and the fees associated with them, the Commission voted against the ordinance. “Government flows from the people. The people don’t want it. You already hit them hard with water and sewer (increases),” Ken McDowell said during the public hearing and second reading of the proposed ordinance. Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of the ordinance during the first reading, but Commission President Bill Jefferson had a change of heart during last month’s meeting. Prompted by comments from that meeting, the town asked its lawyer to make some changes to the ordinance. The proposed changes included the exemption of the following businesses from the business license requirement: home occupations; casual workers employed on a hourly or daily basis; vendors in tents, trailers, or other temporary sites for a period not to exceed three days for community events.
Commissioner Mike Collison said the ordinance was created to make sure that businesses in town are licensed, registered with the state, and are properly insured. He added that it was meant to protect the town’s residents and businesses. Under the ordinance, all businesses operating in the town would have been required to apply for a business license, which cost $100 per year. Anyone who violated the ordinance would have been subject to a $50 fine for each offense and a $250 administrative fee. This did not sit well with many of the business owners in attendance at Monday’s meeting. The county and state already require businesses to have licenses. According to one member of the audience, the state charges $75 per year for a license. Paul Walker of Cannon Cold Storage said the ordinance would have not only hit all businesses with a fee, but also companies that provide services to businesses. He said that the end result of the ordinance would mean that companies in Bridgeville would either reduce the number of employees they have or move out of town. “I think you have the best of intentions but at the same time enough is enough,” said Rob Richey. Jefferson said he had a list of 41 businesses in town that were against the proposed ordinance. He pointed to the town’s $385,000 in escrow and $450,000 in sav-
ings as reasons the additional money from licenses is not needed. “This is a bad bill and we need to vote it down,” Jefferson added. Commissioner Lawrence Tassone said that none of his constituents would have supported the water and wastewater increases, either, but the town needed to pass those increases to balance the budget. “Licenses are a normal cost of business,” said Tassone, who was a business owner for 22 years. Commissioner Pat Correll pointed out that the Commission had already agreed on the ordinance prior to Jefferson’s change of heart. She added that most Sussex County towns (all but three) require business licenses. Collison also said that the licensing fees are part of the new budget, which the Commission already adopted. Former Commissioner Ruth Skala said the idea of a business license was discussed as part of the town’s economic development efforts. She called for the town to have a clear registry of who is doing business in town whether or not it approves the licenses. “I would like to see economic development move forward with or without licensing,” Skala said. Collison ended the discussion by saying that the Commission had the best of intentions with the introduction of the business
license ordinance. He added that its intent was to protect the residents and businesses, not to make money. He want on to say that he went into the meeting prepared to move forward with the license and fee, but he changed his mind after hearing from business owners. While he said he still believes business licenses are a good idea, he made a motion to vote against the proposed ordinance (seconded by Tassone). “We want to see this town continue to grow. We want to bring more businesses into town,” Collison added. The Commission voted unanimously in favor of scrapping the ordinance with Commissioner Jay Mervine not present. Earlier in the meeting the Commission paid tribute to Town Manager Bonnie Walls, who is retiring. Walls was presented with flowers and a plaque from the town as well as tributes from the state Senate and House of Representatives. “This is one of the saddest days in the history of the town,” said Correll, who credited Walls with keeping the town running smoothly. “She’s always been very helpful to us. I think she’s done a great job and we’d like to wish her well in retirement,” Heritage Shores resident Bill Atwood added during the citizens’ privilege. See next week’s Seaford Star for more on Walls and her retirement.

Alexander keeps history of Ross Mansion alive By James Diehl
hen Margaret Alexander walks through the hallways of the historic Ross Mansion in Seaford, it’s not all that difficult for her to imagine what life was like in the mid 19th century. The signs are everywhere, from the unique architecture to the period furniture to the words etched into an upstairs windowpane by one of Ross’s daughters. As a long-time volunteer turned part-time employee of the Seaford Historical Society, Alexander’s never met a ghost in the Italian villa-style home of the late governor – but she’d sure like to. “I would love to see the governor sitting here one day, because I have a few questions I would like to ask him,” quips Alexander, a native of North Carolina and 25-year reading teacher in the Woodbridge School District. “This house is just such a big part of the history of Seaford.” Alexander is playing a vital role this year in the 150th anniversary of the historic mansion, giving special tours and hosting events that are all leading up to a blowout gala on Saturday, Oct. 16. It’s a year-long celebration honoring the mansion and one of Delaware’s most influential, sometimes controversial, former governors. For Alexander, teaching people about Governor William Henry Harrison Ross’s mansion and family has become an important part of her life. “I just like meeting the public and talking to people, and I also like the house and the history,” she says. “It’s just always been a neat job.” Alexander is a perfect example of never knowing where life will one day take you – growing up on Tobacco Road and later attending the University of Delaware, Alexander had no idea she would one day be living in the Nylon Capital of the World. The former reading teacher certainly never imagined she would, or even could, become so engrossed in the history of an area several hundred miles from her hometown of Charlotte, N.C. But indeed she has – she’s even jokingly been called “Mrs. Ross” by a colleague or two because of all the time she spends at the historic mansion. She soaks it all in and goes about her business with a constant smile on her face. Keeping the history of the Ross family
If you know of someone who has dedicated his or her life to service to others, suggest their names for this series. Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com alive has become almost like a mission for Alexander. “Some people have told me that they don’t think the historical society should have preserved a traitor’s house, and that hurts my feelings every time I hear that,” says Alexander, referring to the governor’s known ties to the South during the Civil War. “We may never go back to the way it was then, but this is a big part of Seaford’s history. I really don’t know how to respond to those statements sometimes; I think some people are still fighting the Civil War, if you want my honest opinion.” Alexander figures she gives about 150 tours a year of the mansion, tours she makes engaging, informational and often interactive. She’s known to get out in the field and play hoops or graces – popular children’s games of the time – with the little ones or host tours in one of the handful of period outfits she’s handmade at her home. “I like getting to dress up and pretend that I lived back then,” she admits. “The first costume I made, I thought I wanted the total experience, so I did it all with a needle and thread. But now I use a sewing machine, which works out a lot better.” Gov. Ross had 10 children, and Alexander makes sure visitors to the mansion learn about each and every one of them. Everyone has their favorites, including the modern day “Mrs. Ross.” “The kid I would most like to meet is Mary, the one who wrote her name in the windowpane upstairs,” says Alexander. “She was born in 1857, right before the Civil War, and I don’t think she had a close relationship with her father because she was really young when he left the country.” In a way, Alexander feels a connection with Mary Ross because of the etching in the glass windowpane in her upstairs bedroom. It’s there everyday, a constant reminder of
Margaret Alexander has been volunteering at the historic Ross Mansion since the 1980s and has been a part-time employee of the Seaford Historical Society since 1998. She gives roughly 150 tours of the structure each year and remains committed to keeping the history of the Ross family alive through her work at the Italian villa-style mansion.
her life in the Ross household. “The story goes that Mary got a diamond engagement ring and wrote her name on the windowpane to see if it was a real one,” says Alexander with a smile. “And since we can see her name in the glass, we know that she did, indeed, get a real one.” Thousands of people have toured the Ross Mansion since it was opened for tours in the 1980s, a good number of them hosted by Alexander herself. The stories are endless, the memories countless, the experiences unique. Still, there are a few that stick out to the Ross Mansion caretaker, a few that are etched in her mind. Like the second grader who, taking a tour with a couple of women many times his age, decided to beat the ladies at their own game. “He was taking the tour with his mother and his brother and we had just started when the doorbell rang and these two elderly ladies came in and joined us,” remembers Alexander. “Well, these two ladies were into the artistic merits of everything and I didn’t think we were ever going to even get upstairs at the rate we were going.” Instead of complaining, the young man listened to the ladies, analyzed what they were doing and, when they got to one of the bedrooms upstairs, decided he would join in on the fun. “He was really sharp and we got up to the Gage bedroom where we had this cover
on the bed,” Alexander continues. “He had caught on to these ladies, so he took one look at it and said ‘I think they look like Cheerios,’ and they did. It was all I could do to keep a straight face.” It’s those moments that make doing what she does so precious to Alexander, those moments when the history of Seaford is brought to life for the youngest of the generations. The history of western Sussex County will likely only stay alive if it is passed on from generation to generation. And that’s exactly what Alexander has been trying to accomplish over the last 20-plus years through her work at the historic Ross Mansion and Plantation. “If the governor could see this, I think he would be glad that somebody is looking after his house,” she says. “I also think the historical society would have a harder time rallying the people of Seaford about the past history of the area if the mansion wasn’t here. Just visiting this mansion really transports you back to that time.” The 150th anniversary of the Ross Mansion will continue through the rest of the year. Upcoming events include an ice cream festival on Aug. 22, a Victorian fashion show on Sept. 11 and the anniversary gala on Saturday, Oct. 16. For more information on any of these events, contact the Seaford Historical Society at 628-9500 or visit www.seafordhistoricalsociety.com.

General contractor selected for Del Tech’s Energy House Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus announces that Emory Hill and Company has been selected to be the general contractor for Energy House, a landmark instructional facility to be built on campus. With corporate headquarters in New Castle, Emory Hill provides construction services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The full-service company provides an in-house team of experienced construction professionals and on-site management who adhere to the company’s fundamental management component of “on time and on budget.” Emory Hill has been the contractor for numerous high profile projects, including the Delaware Children’s Museum, the headquarters for Goodwill Industries of Delaware and Washington College in Chestertown, Md. The company is also the recipient of many awards for excellence in construction and most recently received the 2009 Smart Growth Award for TD Bank in Hockessin. “We really hope this landmark project is just the tip of the iceberg for green design in Delaware,” says Bob Liberato, chief estimator and director of business
development for Emory Hill. “This is the future of design and construction. For students and residents to have a place to learn about sustainable design and explore options for making their existing homes more efficient is priceless.” Energy House is partially funded by a federal grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration. Energy House, a powerful combination of energy efficiency and the best in sustainable home design, will serve as a center for alternative and renewable technologies and as a demonstration facility and educational lab for Delaware Tech’s new Applied Energy Education offerings. Designed by Element Design Group of Lewes, Delaware, this residential-style building will be constructed with sustainable design and building methods and materials; the college will seek LEED Platinum level certification through US Green Building Council for the facility. Wired for distance-learning capability, Energy House will provide remote learners access to vital energy education. Special focus will be on renewable energy and environmentally-preferred products that

people can use now in their homes and work; these products include a living green roof, solar systems, wind generation equipment, radiant floor heating, geothermal options and efficiency in construction and appliance usage. As a working lab and an actual home, Energy House will collect and provide data on the cost/benefit of energy generation and efficiency that students and the public can use to make smart decisions about sustainable alternatives. “The Town of Georgetown is very excited to see this project move to the next phase,” says Brian Pettyjohn, mayor of Georgetown. “Having students, professional architects and engineers and the trade industries come to Georgetown to learn about green building design, construction, operations, and maintenance will be extremely beneficial and will help promote economic growth in and around our town. Georgetown is committed to encouraging enterprises that contribute to energy conservation and sustainability of our natural resources.” For additional information about all aspects of this project, visit Delaware Tech’s Web site at www.dtcc.edu/energyhouse.

New video by James Diehl will feature 25 local WWII veterans Sixty-five years since the conclusion of hostilities in World War II, voices from this important time in history are vanishing in rapid numbers. Sadly, it won’t be long before first-hand accounts from this period are lost forever. Through a partnership with Milfordbased Watermark Productions, local author James Diehl is attempting to keep the voices of the “Greatest Generation” alive through a 60-minute video documentary, scheduled for release on Veteran’s Day. The film will feature 25 of the 100 veterans included in Diehl’s two books, “World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware,” released last year, and “World War II Heroes of Coastal Delaware,” scheduled for a May 2011, release. “I’m very excited about this film project and my continuing mission to keep these valiant voices alive,” says Diehl, a native of Seaford and near lifelong
Horsey Fund to award grants
The Horsey Family Youth Foundation (HFYF) Fund, a charitable fund of the Delaware Community Foundation, is presenting a total of $38,619 in grants to 15 organizations to support youth programs in Kent, New Castle and Sussex Counties. The presentation will be held on Thursday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m., at the Shore Thunder Starz Building, County Seat Highway (Route 9) at Asbury Road, Laurel. Grant recipients include: Delaware Technical & Community College, Georgetown; Diamond Dreams Athletic Performance Center, Delmar; Diamond State Swoop, Laurel; Dover/Caesar Rodney Raiders Pop Warner, Cheswold; Georgetown Little League, Georgetown; Harrington Pop Warner, Felton; Laurel Little League, Laurel; Laurel Pop Warner, Laurel; Lower Delaware Autism Foundation, Lewes; Middletown Wildcats/Middletown Soccer, Townsend; Milford Pop Warner, Milford; Shore Thunder Starz, Laurel; Sussex Central Pop Warner, Millsboro; Sussex Technical High School, Georgetown; and Woodbridge School District Varsity Track Team, Greenwood. The Horseys created the Horsey Family Youth Foundation Fund at the Delaware Community Foundation to support programs for youth in Southern Delaware. Their goal is to try to keep children off drugs and the streets by encouraging them to become involved in education and sports programs. An estimated 3,500 to 4,000 kids will benefit from the grants awarded to 15 Kent, New Castle and Sussex County organizations that provide organized league sports including baseball, softball, cheerleading, football and wrestling. This event is being held to recognize these organizations and to encourage individuals and businesses to make contributions to HFYF Fund to help support youth programs.
resident of Sussex County. “This film, when completed, is going to be something very, very special.” While many of the recollections in the film can be read about in Diehl’s book project, the film will allow Diehl viewers to put faces to the names, to see the very real emotions etched on the faces of those involved in history’s grandest war. Told from the perspective of men, and a handful of women, who served during that time period and today call Sussex County home, this film will allow their voices to be heard forever. These stories are emotional, they’re real, and they’re so very candid. From Pearl Harbor, to Iwo Jima, D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge, among many other parts of the war, they are told with passion and an enormous amount of pride. “More than anything, what comes through in these video accounts is the pride these men and women have in the United States of America,” says Diehl. “They gave so much, and really asked for nothing in return. If I can help preserve their stories, even in a small way, then it is my distinct honor and privilege to do so.” A two-and-a-half minute video trailer of the documentary can now be viewed by visiting Diehl’s website, www.ww2heroes.com. The site also features brief bios of the first 50 World War II veterans, several of whom have already passed on, as well as more information about southern Delaware’s humble heroes of World War II. The 234 page “World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware” is the first in a two-part series that pays tribute to area veterans of the Second World War. The book received a first-place award in the Delaware Press Association’s 2009 communications competition in the category of “Non Fiction Book-History.” The early profiles from the book were also named a first-place award winner in the 2007 Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association’s editorial competition. “ ‘World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware’ by James Diehl provides interesting and often moving accounts of men and women who participated in World War II,” acknowledged George B. Ward, a history professor at the University of Texas and a judge for the DPA competition. “Each chapter is essentially an interview with a southern Delaware resident, telling the story of their service and sacrifice during the war. Taken together, these engaging portraits of Delaware natives (and those who settled there), told mainly in their own words, create a powerful picture of the ‘Greatest Generation.’ ” More information about Diehl’s ongoing project honoring Sussex County’s World War II veterans can be obtained by visiting www.ww2-heroes.com.

Larry L. Morris, 70
Larry L. Morris of Seaford, was guided peacefully into Heaven on Sunday, Aug. 8, 2010, surrounded by family and friends at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford. He fought a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer for over a year. Larry was born on July 5, 1940, to Everett Alan and Beatrice Morris who preceded him in death. He is survived by his wife and best friend, Monica Morris. Their 30th wedding anniversary would have been on Aug. 28. Larry is also survived by his son, Gregory L. Morris and children, Hannah, Emma and Garrett; his son, Troy D. Morris and wife Stacy along with their three sons, Koby, Blake and Brady; and his stepson, Robert M. Culver, wife Elizabeth (Liz) and their son, Riley. His brother and sister-in-law, Alan and Janet Morris, were at his bedside when he left this earth. He also leaves several very special nieces, nephews and cousins. Larry graduated from North Dorchester High School, then joined the U.S. Army and worked on the family farm. He had a 31 year career with DuPont in Seaford. He also owned his own landscaping business for several years and kept busy working with friends Linda, Mary and Sue at Seaford Florist. He was an active member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Larry was a quiet man but loved life and all it had to offer. Summer was his favorite time of year and he enjoyed many years of camping, fishing, making poor attempts at the game of golf, working in the yard and caring for his diverse assortment of pets. His greatest passion was travel. Along with his wife and close friends, Doug and Cyndie Figgs, Larry always looked forward to the next adventure. A celebration of life will be held at Central Worship Center, 14545 Sycamore Rd., Laurel, at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 12. Family and friends may visit at the church between noon and 1 p.m. Burial will follow in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Seaford.

OHS promotes pedestrian safety It’s proving to be a very dangerous year to those trying to walk near Delaware roadways says state Office of Highway Safety officials (OHS). Since Jan. 1, 16 pedestrians have died in traffic related crashes in Delaware which is three times higher than at this time last year. That’s why highway safety officials are reminding pedestrians to be on alert for motorists when crossing the road and wear reflective clothing or carry a flashlight in low light or dark conditions. Seventy-five percent of the pedestrian fatalities this year occurred in New Castle County with most happening on or around the areas of Route 7 and Route 13 in low light or dark conditions. Two fatalities occurred in Kent County; one in Dover and the other in Milford. Two also occurred in Sussex County; in Millsboro and Rehoboth. The common factors in the Kent and Sussex County fatalities are pedestrians walking along a high traffic roadway and not crossing at a marked intersections or crosswalks. A closer look at the statistics shows that almost every one of the 16 fatal pedestrian crashes, the pedestrian was at fault. Alcohol was a factor in two cases while the most common violation was the pedestrian stepping out into the path of a vehicle and not using a crosswalk or marked intersection. OHS officials are also concerned with pedestrians’ inattentiveness to traffic and their surroundings while using IPods, texting on cell phones, or using other electronic devices that create a
distraction while walking or jogging. By following these basic safety tips and pedestrian laws, everyone can learn to Walk Smart. • Cross only at crosswalks or intersections with signals or traffic signs. Look left, right and left again, and only start to cross when it’s clear. • Do not risk crossing outside of a crosswalk or intersection just because it’s more convenient, especially on high speed roadways. Cars cannot stop in time for you. • Use sidewalks. If there’s no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far off the edge of the road as possible. • Do not step into a crosswalk if it will create a hazard to motorists. • When it is clear to cross, continue to watch for traffic while crossing the street until you have safely reached the other side. • Carry a flashlight or other reflective item when walking at night. It’s the law. • Do not hitchhike. • Teach children not to run into the
street after balls and don’t allow them to cross alone until you’ve practiced the basics with them hundreds of times. • Do not walk under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Impaired walking is like impaired driving; it is illegal and can be deadly. • If your vehicle breaks down on an interstate or busy roadway, don’t leave your vehicle. Instead call #77 or 911 for assistance. Motorists can also call #77 to report a disabled vehicle they see on the roadways. If you are driving, be on the lookout for pedestrians near the roadway. OHS is also continuing the “Walk Smart” awareness campaign in August and October with bus transit ads and sidewalk stencils to remind pedestrians to “Cross This Way” at marked intersections. For more information on the Walk Smart campaign and to find materials about pedestrian safety tips and laws, visit www.ohs.delaware.gov or follow us on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/DEHighwaySafe.

MORNING STAR • AuGuST 12 - 18, 2010
Being involved in your child’s education is important for success By Dr. Anthony Policastro I have often indicated how important parents are to their children’s education. Children get a report card four times a year to let them know how they are doing. Perhaps parents need to get a report card as well. There are several subjects that are important for parents to be involved in related to their children’s education. The first subject is “Homework.” This is clearly an important role for parents. A grade of “A” should be given if homework is a joint assignment with the parent involved. A grade of “C” should be given if homework is done by the student and checked by the parent. (Remember that C is average and therefore a good grade). A grade of “F” should be given if parents do not pay any attention to homework. The second subject is “Parent-Teacher Conference.” Interacting with your child’s teacher is important for several reasons. It keeps the lines of communication open and lets you know what is going on. It also
gives you the chance to discuss concerns with the teacher. A grade of “A” should be given if you attend all those that are scheduled and contact the teacher in between as necessary. A grade of “C” should be given if you keep those that are scheduled but have no other contact. A grade of “F” should be given if you do not attend the conferences. The third subject is “Setting the Example.” Children learn more by seeing what you do than by listening. Parents need to show children that school and school activities are important. A grade of “A” should be given if you are active in the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), attend your child’s school activities and attend other school activities. A grade of “C” should be given if you do at least two of the three. A grade of “F” should be given if you do not attend any of the activities. The fourth subject is “Out of School Learning During the School Year.” This is related to teaching your child over and
above what is done in the classroom. It involves things such as giving your child an allowance to learn about money, reading to your child at night, having your child read to you, teaching your child a hobby, enrolling your child in a sport and enrichment classes of other types. It also involves visits to educational events such as a visit to the Salisbury Zoo or the Ross Mansion. A grade of “A” should be given if you do these kinds of things on a daily basis. A grade of “C” should be given if you do these kinds of things on a weekly basis. A grade of “F” should be given if you do not do these kinds of things. The fifth subject is “Out of School Learning During the Summer.” While there is no formal class during the summer, there are multiple learning opportunities. These are the same kinds of things that are useful during the school year. However, during the summer they become more important because there are no additional learning opportunities going on in school. Thus, it is more of a challenge
to the parents. A grade of “A” should be given if these things happen several times a week during the summer. A grade of “C” should be given if they happen several times a month. A grade of “F” should be given if they do not happen at all during the summer. The sixth subject is “Screen Time.” It is a known fact that time spent with TV, video games and Internet does not improve learning. A grade of “A” should be given if there is less than two hours of screen time only on non-school days. A grade of “C” should be given if there is 1-2 hours of screen time every day. A grade of “F” should be given if there is more than 2 hours of screen time per day or more than 14 hours per week. Once you give yourself a full report card, it will give you the chance to decide where you can improve your efforts in educating your children. Many of these items are not directly related to the school so the burden lies solely on the parents to provide the education that their children need.
Annual Heart Walk October 2 Just a few months ago, doctors discovered an atrial septal defect in the heart of five-year-old Emily Carpenter. The wall separating the upper chambers of Emily’s heart had a hole measuring approximately 2.5 centimeters. “We were shocked. We were scared,” said Kristen Perrego, who is Emily’s mother and is also an Operating Room nurse at Bayhealth – Kent General Hospital. It was an agonizing decision for Perrego and her husband, as they had the option of allowing invasive open heart surgery on their daughter, or choosing a less invasive interventional procedure in which a metal mesh implant would be placed into the hole through a catheter that would be inserted through Emily’s thigh, up her artery, and into her heart. The interventional procedure did not require surgeons to open up her chest, but it carried other risks. “The doctors told us that the interventional procedure had a 50 percent chance of success and the implant itself could damage Emily’s heart tissue and create other issues,” said Perrego. So, on June 24, Emily underwent open heart surgery. Surgeons sewed a patch over the hole in her heart and, in spite of some minor complications, the feisty Dover girl made a quick recovery. Just six days after her surgery, she returned home

to play with her toys and run outside. Today, Emily Carpenter is an active pre-kindergarten student who enjoys playing house with the other kids at the Bayhealth Child Care Center in Dover. She has also taken on an important role as the “new face” of the Bayhealth Heart Walk team for the upcoming American Heart Association Heart Walks in Kent and Sussex Counties. “Emily has inspired people to join the Heart Walk. Proceeds from the AHA 2010 Heart Walk will go towards research which may someday benefit patients just like Emily,” said Kim Holmes, MSN, RN, who is the captain of the Bayhealth – Kent General Hospital Heart Walk Team. Walkers from the Bayhealth – Kent General Hospital Heart Walk Team will participate in the Kent County Heart Walk on Saturday, Sept. 18, at Mirror Lake in Dover. Walkers from the Bayhealth – Milford Memorial Hospital Heart Walk Team will participate in the Sussex County Heart Walk on Saturday, Oct. 2, at Delaware Technical and Community College in Georgetown.

MORNING STAR • AuGuST 12-18, 2010
Use a realtor to assist you with all your real estate transactions By Judy Dean
President, Sussex County Association of Realtors
As the American economy continues to endure historic challenges, and with household budgets feeling the pinch here on Delmarva, many homeowners are finding it more and more tempting to put their homes on the market without the help of a qualified real estate professional. It’s understandable and the reasons for doing so have never been more crystal clear – in this economy, every single hardearned dollar means a lot more than it did even 10 years ago. But while saving those realtors’ commissions may seem like the prudent thing to do, it may not always be the best choice. I suggest you think things through before making a decision that could be one of the biggest you will ever make. While its true that selling a home through a realtor appears to be more expensive, at least at first glance, it’s also a case of getting what you pay for. I’ve listed below a few examples of what we at the Sussex County Association of Realtors can provide that you quite simply can’t on your own: • Financing. Of all the challenges the
real estate market has endured in the last 12 to 18 months, the most difficult revolves around financing, and how to obtain it. Realtors are aware of the constantly changing mortgage qualifications and track the progression of every loan throughout the buying process. They often contact the loan officer on a daily basis, checking on the status of your home loan. • Multiple Listing Service. When you list a home with a real estate professional, your home is included on the county’s Multiple Listing Service. That means that every real estate office in Sussex County is provided with information on your home. The MLS at the Sussex County Association of Realtors is also syndicated nationally; local listings from Sussex County appear on multiple websites throughout the country, giving you even more exposure. • Market saturation. No matter which part of the county your home is located in, realtors can advertise your property from Rehoboth to Seaford and everywhere in between by utilizing the Multiple Listing Service and the countywide network of realtors. For anything close to the same coverage, you would need to buy a large display advertisement in every newspaper
in the county. • Current laws. One of the most important jobs of any realtor is to remain up to date on any and all laws that affect the communities where they work. In collaboration with the Delaware Association of Realtors, we pride ourselves on staying on top of the state’s legislative issues, particularly those that affect real estate. If there’s a law that has, or will, affect our area, we’re sure to know about it. • Zoning issues. Learning how a property is currently zoned is easy enough, but discovering what issues are due to be considered by local, county and state officials is another thing entirely. Realtors know what is on the agendas of many of our area’s legislative boards and bodies, and we can warn you if there are issues to be concerned with. • Potential development issues. Consider this scenario – you recently bought a house that is next to a whole lot of wideopen Sussex County farmland. Shortly after moving in, the construction begins and you realize that, for the next several years, one of the largest housing developments ever in the area will be going in next door. That’s the kind of thing realtors are aware
of, and could have advised you of during the home buying process. • Disclosures/Agreements. When you buy or sell a home through a member realtor of SCAOR, there are certain agreements and disclosure forms that are part of the buying and selling process. These are to make sure that everyone, on both sides, is protected and that there are no misunderstandings later. Some of these items could be missed if going it alone. Simply put, a realtor can provide you with the type of service that no one else can – not even yourself. Yes, it might appear to be more expensive, but take the time to really consider what you’re getting for your money. Your home will almost certainly sell faster and for a higher price if you utilize the services a qualified realtor can provide, and you’ll be protected from unforeseen issues that could arise later on. I may be a little biased, but I think you’ll be much happier in the long run if you allow one or all of us at SCAOR to give you a helping hand. If you’d like to learn more about the services offered at the Sussex County Association of Realtors, visit our website at www.scaor.com.

Entertainment AFRAM Festival’s Hip-Hop Hour begins 4:30 Saturday afternoon The Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival, Inc. announces its R&B entertainment schedule for this year’s AFRAM Festival, held in Nutter Park, Seaford. The R&B/Hip-Hop Hour @ AFRAM begins at 4:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 14. Featured artists are Jagwire Lexis, Rita Carol, Armah Ogund’e and Toby Hughes. Jagwire Lexis is a well-known Haitian rapper in the local area. He is a commodity around Delaware State University, University of Delaware and University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He is also a huge asset to the Haitian community in the area, hosting and performing in countless shows, events and parties. Jagwire’s first solo project, “The Revolution,” sold nearly 10,000 copies. Jagwire is now releasing “NoE ViziTaTion,” and a Haitian album, “Yon Chante Pou Moun Mwen.” Rita Carol Godwin, born in Philadelphia, Pa., has been singing since she was a young child. As Rita traveled up and down the east coast, music played a major part in her life.
Maryland’s Armah Ogund’e has been practicing his craft with full dedication to the underground music scene and has teamed up with New Struggle Muzik Group, Maryland’s leading independent underground record label. His new album, “GET 2 KNOW ME,” is now available. The Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival is under the direction of Seaford City Councilwoman and Eastern Shore AFRAM Executive Director Pat A. Jones. The festival will be held from Aug. 1214 at Nutter Park near Chandler Heights in Seaford. This year’s theme is derived from the principle of “Umoja” (Unity). Eastern Shore AFRAM is the largest African-American heritage festival in Sussex County. Last year, more than 2,500 visitors from Delmarva, neighboring states, and as far away as San Diego, Calif. attended this extraordinary three day event. For more information about AFRAM, visit www.easternshoreafram.org .

Laurel Senior League Softball team opens tourney with a win By Mike McClure
The Laurel Senior League all-star softball team opened World Series play with a 1-0 win over USA East last Sunday in Roxana. Laurel starter Logan Green, supported by a strong defensive effort, earned the win in a pitcher’s duel against East pitcher Vittoria Adams. “I put my butterflies away and I said ‘you can do this,” said Green, who pitched two innings in the championship game last year. “I was really excited (after the last out).” Laurel’s Kristen Collins collected the first hit of the game in the bottom of the second with a leadoff single. Collins moved to second following a bunt by Bree Venables as Adams’ errant throw to second put a pair of runners on base. Nicole Ullman moved the runners up with a sacrifice bunt and Collins came home on Alison Pusey’s hard hit ball to the second baseman which was ruled an error. Pusey was thrown out at second and Venables was out at the plate on an attempted double steal, ending the inning. Logan Green sent East (Haverstraw, N.Y.) down in order for the third straight inning in the top of the third and also recorded her third strikeout of the game. The two pitchers kept rolling through the fourth inning.
East threatened in the top of the fifth as Adams hit a two-out single for team’s first hit of the game, but Green got a strikeout to end the threat. Adams stranded a Laurel runner on base in the bottom of the inning as Ullman singled and moved to second on a passed ball, but was left on base following a pair of strikeouts by Adams. In the top of the sixth, Taylor Corretjer picked up her team’s second hit with a bunt single with two away before Laurel catcher Erin Johnson threw her out trying to steal second to end the inning.

District III Big League softball team falls to 2-4 in World Series
The District III Big League all-star softball team jumped out to a 2-1 start in World Series play last week in Kalamazoo, Mich. Unfortunately, the Eastern Region champs lost three close contests to move to 2-4. District III opened the World Series with an 18-2 win over Canada last Thursday. Kim Smith had to hits including a home run and Kelsey Doherty, Brooke Evans, and Kelsey Oliphant also collected a pair of hits. Jesse Dmiterchik doubled and Jenna Cahall, Jalyn Maull, Melony Thompson, Stephanie Wheatley, Kristen Cooper, Alexis Oliphant, and Alexa Hendrickson added one hit each. Wheatley and Cooper combined to allow two runs on three hits. District III fell to Southwest, 6-4, on Thursday as the Louisiana team scored four runs in the fifth inning to take the lead. Kelsey Oliphant had two hits including a home run, Kelsey Doherty added two hits, and Thompson doubled. Smith, Evans, and Cahall each contributed a hit in the loss. District III bounced back with a 12-9 win over USA West later that day to move to 2-1. Doherty hit a grand slam, Smith had three hits including two home runs and a double, and Evans added three hits. Jenna Allen collected three hits including a double, Kelsey Oliphant had two hits, and Thompson homered. District III was handed a 2-1 tough luck loss by the host team on Saturday. District III scored on in the fourth, but Kalamazoo rallied for two in the seventh for the win. Evans had another three hit performance while Cahall, Wheatley, Oliphant, and Doherty had one hit apiece. Southeast edged Laurel, 3-1, on Sunday despite Doherty’s two hits including a home run. Cahall, Thompson, Smith, and Kelsey Oliphant chipped in with one hit each. Later that night, District III lost to Asia Pacific, 5-3. Kelsey Oliphant collected four hits, Thompson had three hits including a double, Cahall hit a home run, and Smith added a hit.

Senior softball continued Laurel had a chance to add some insurance runs in the bottom of the inning as Kelsey Willey and Bethany Wheatley each hit two-out singles, but Wheatley was caught in a rundown to end the inning. East’s Destiney Jones hit a two-out single and moved up on a wild pitch in her team’s final at-bat. Willey snared a liner for the final out to seal the 1-0 Laurel win. “The first win’s always big, it’s a big monkey off your back. She (Green) did a phenomenal job,” Laurel manager Kenny Willey said. “I like being the underdog because you’re not expected to do anything. All the pressure’s on the other team.”
Collins led the way with a hit and a run, Pusey drove in the lone run, and Green allowed no runs and three hits and struck out five in seven innings. Willey, Wheatley, and Ullman also chipped in with hits in the victory. Laurel Little League has represented District III in the Senior League Softball World Series in six of the seven years it has taken place at the Lower Sussex Little League complex in Roxana, including the last four year. But this year’s team, with only four players back from last year’s squad, features a lot of new faces. “We have a lot of new people who played travel ball and they know what they’re doing,” said Green.

MORNING STAR • AUGUST 12 - 18, 2010
Browning, Pettyjohn wins Twin 20’s at Delaware International By Alison Byram Odds were high for a female driver winning one of the Twin 20 events, as Amanda Whaley and Staci Warrington started in the top two positions in the first 20-lap A Main Event. Whaley took the early lead with challenges from Warrington and veteran, Hal Browning. Warrington took the second position from Browning and was fixed to the rear bumper of Whaley. Kerry King was on the move, got under Browning and took the third position. The top five had broken away from the rest of the field, as second place runner Warrington spun in the turns one and two corners, and had to forfeit her position for the rear. On the restart, Whaley remained the leader, as Donald Lingo, Jr., Kerry King and Rob Schirmer had a three-way battle for third. By lap eight, Whaley maintained the lead, with Browning beginning to make challenges on the bottom of the track. At the same time, Lingo, Jr., had caught up to the back bumper of Browning. On lap 12, the field stacked up single file for the restart with Whaley leading the field. Kenny Pettyjohn who started in the eighth position, passed King for fourth. On the next circuit, Browning got underneath Whaley as well as Lingo, closing the gap on Browning. Whaley went high and Browning and Lingo both took the top two spots. The top five were now Browning, Lingo, Pettyjohn, King, and Derricke Hill. On lap 16, Lingo slowed on the backstretch bringing out the caution flag, handing over the second position spot to Pettyjohn. The field lined up single file for a four lap showdown. Pettyjohn went to the top of the racetrack challenging Browning for the top position, but could not close the deal. Behind the leader, David Pettyjohn, Ray Davis and Mark Byram had a three car battle for the fifth position. Kenny Pettyjohn could not overcome Browning, who took the checkered flag with Kenny Pettyjohn, King, Hill, and Davis rounding out the top five. For the second 20-lap Feature event for the super late models, the field was inverted from the last running car in the first event, placing Mike Parsons on the pole and Browning starting towards the rear, with exception of Lingo, Jr., and Bryan Driver who did not finish the first event and would start at the rear. Lingo raced cousin Dale Lingo’s super late model in the second event due to mechanical failure in his family-owned No. 55L. Mark Pettyjohn took the early lead from Parsons with Ross Robinson following in third. Kenny Pettyjohn was the man on the move, taking a liking to the topside of the track and passing multiple cars per lap. By lap five, Kenny Pettyjohn had worked his way to the fourth position. On lap six, the first caution flag flew with Davis making a right hand turn to the pits for a flat tire. On the restart, Kenny Pettyjohn went to the top, and passed his brother, Mark, with ease. On the next circuit, Parsons spun coming out of turn two and collected a variety of cars, including Browning, Robinson, Byram, and Donald Lingo, Jr., who maintained speed throughout the caution and was able to remain in his respected position. When the green flag waved, Warrington quickly pounced on Mark Pettyjohn, as Pettyjohn fought back in the next corner to retake the second position. Lingo, Jr., followed in suit and took the third position. Meanwhile, Kenny Pettyjohn had developed a half straightway lead. On lap 12, the caution flag flew again for Robinson slowing in turns one and two. The cars lined up for a single-file restart, as Kenny Pettyjohn began working on stretching out his lead. David Pettyjohn and Davis made it a three-wide battle with David Hill for the fifth position. On the backstretch, Byram and Derrike Hill made contact, with Hill ultimately spinning in turns three and four, collecting Browning. On the restart, Mark Pettyjohn made a last bid challenge, getting under Kenny Pettyjohn, and Donald Lingo, Jr. Kenny Pettyjohn maintained the lead with Mark Pettyjohn, Lingo, Warrington, and King following in the top five. With two laps remaining, Kenny Pettyjohn had developed a comfortable lead. The battle was for seventh, as David Pettyjohn, Schirmer, David Hill, and Byram battled four-wide. Kenny Pettyjohn took the checkered flag with brother Mark Pettyjohn following in second and Lingo, Jr., Warrington, and Davis beating King to the line. Pettyjohn dedicated his victory to Mr. Dryden, a long time track supporter and photographer. Heat races were won by Browning and Warrington.

Popular luggage shipping options
STATE FIRE PROMOTION - The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office and the State Fire School participated in the Delaware State Fair. Representatives from each organization manned a booth answering questions about their agencies, fire safety and general safety issues. The Fire School participated in the evening parade on three nights to promote this year’s upcoming Fire Prevention Week. The theme this year is “Beep, a sound you can live with.” Banners were placed on the Fire School trailer along with appearances by Firefighter Ed U. Cator and “Detecta” the smoke alarm (shown here). The State Fair traditionally kicks off the promotion of Fire Prevention Week.
Travelers can ease air travel burdens this summer with three luggage shipping alternatives, including a new luggage box that takes the place of a suitcase, to help reduce hassles of long lines, security searches and increasing baggage fees. “Not having to carry a suitcase while traveling is a great convenience. Even better is luggage awaiting your arrival at a destination or hotel,” said Laura Rogers The UPS Store owner. “You can ship your luggage as is; place it in a box for shipment, or purchase a luggage box, eliminating the need for a suitcase altogether.” When shipped, the luggage box is competitively priced with the airlines’ baggage fees, especially when compared to the major airlines, many of which are charging well over $100 for comparable baggage. Additionally, members of the Automobile Association of America (AAA) can receive a 15 percent discount off the full retail price of The UPS Store eligible products and services and five percent off domestic U.S. UPS shipping costs. The luggage box comes in two sizes, large and small; has a sturdy handle for easy carrying, and is made of recyclable corrugate. Because it weighs less than an empty suitcase, packing directly into the box can help lower shipping costs. Travelers also can include packaging tape and a return UPS shipping label for use when returning home. “Luggage shipping picked up when the
airlines began increasing fees for checked bags and carry-ons,” Rogers added. Both luggage boxes meet airline baggage restrictions for travelers opting to fly with their belongings. The small box can be carried on and the large box can be checked in, minimizing the chance of paying airline oversize or overweight charges. The luggage boxes have been professionally tested. Luggage solutions from The UPS Store also allow travelers to easily track shipments with UPS mobile apps for cell phones, PDAs or other web-enabled wireless devices or receive e-mail shipment notification. Travelers can visit the online cost calculator to research the most economical shipping option. Planning ahead allows travelers to choose a less expensive shipping option like UPS Ground service. Additional information to consider when planning to ship luggage includes: • Oversized items, such as skis, golf clubs and fishing poles, are items travelers would prefer to have waiting at their destination, • Because of the duties and taxes associated with international shipments, luggage shipment is not recommended for international travel. • Federal Aviation Administration restrictions prohibits airline passengers from shipping hazardous materials, including colognes and perfumes, aerosol sprays, nail polish and cigarette lighters via air.

Police Journal Two arrested in home invasion
Delaware State Police have charged Brandon Rust, 35, of Farmington and Abel Murray, 22, of Greenwood, in connection with a home invasion. The incident happened just after 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 6, when Rust and Murray allegedly entered the home of a 39-yearold female on Sharps Mill Road in Greenwood. The two were wearing disguises and one of the men was armed with a baseball bat. One of the suspects held the victim to the ground while the second one rummaged through the house and removed cash and approximately 140 pills of Oxycodone before fleeing. The suspects fled north on Sharps Mill Road. The victim attempted to follow the pair but was unable. Troopers found evidence linking Rust and Murray to the crime. Both men were taken into custody later that evening. Rust was charged with second degree burglary, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, second degree conspiracy and possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited. He was committed to the Department of Correction in default of $60,000 cash bail. Murray was charged with second degree burglary, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony and second degree conspiracy. He was committed to the Department of Correction in default of $58,000 cash bail.
Police search for Seaford man
Delaware State Police is seeking the public’s help in apprehending a domestic violence fugitive, Kendall M. Johnson, 30, of Seaford. On Monday, July 12, Johnson and the victim were involved in a verbal altercation over a family matter. The victim alleged Johnson placed her in a choke hold during an argument which caused the victim’s nose to bleed. The victim was able to break away from Johnson and lock herself inside her car parked in the driveway. During the process of fleeing, the victim’s shirt was ripped by Johnson. Upon the troopers arrival, Johnson fled from the residence and has not been located. Troopers obtained an arrest warrant consisting of one charge of strangulation, third degree assault and criminal mischief under $1,000 damage. Johnson is believed to frequent the Laurel and Seaford area.

Two arrested for robbery
Delaware State Police state troopers have arrested two men for taking money and then seriously injuring a woman during a robbery at her residence on Shawnee Road in Milford, on Sunday, Aug. 1 at 2 a.m. The 23-year-old victim befriended the two suspects, Joshua Veach, 25, of Milford and Dennis Johnson II, 28, of Harrington, and the trio went to the victim’s home. The victim went upstairs for a brief time, came down and discovered money missing from her purse. Veach denied taking the money after the victim confronted him. The victim noticed that Johnson was outside and confronted him. An altercation ensued between Johnson and the victim. During the altercation between the two, Veach entered a black vehicle and began to back out on Shawnee Road. As Veach was backing out, Johnson entered the passenger side of the car. The victim was able to open the rear passenger side door in an attempt to get in the car to retrieve her money. Veach quickly accelerated causing the victim to fall out of the car to the ground. The victim was able to get to a neighbor’s house where emergency responders transported her to Milford Memorial Hospital. Her injuries were so severe she was flown to Christiana Hospital near Newark where she was admitted with a severe contusion to her entire left side, brain bleed and loss of vision in her left eye. During the investigation, troopers learned that the three were in the Harrington Raceway and Casino. Troopers assigned to the Division of Gaming Enforcement were able to obtain video that assisted in identifying the suspects. On August 5, troopers arrested Veach at his home and charged him with second degree assault and first degree reckless endangering. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $7,000 bail. On August 6, troopers arrested Johnson at his home in Harrington. He was taken back to Sussex County and charged with first degree robbery and second degree conspiracy. He was also committed to
SCI in default of $11,000 bail. The State Attorney General’s Office will look at amending Veach’s charges to robbery and conspiracy during a Grand Jury hearing. Troopers recovered evidence implicating the two in the robbery.
Police arrest suspect
On August 5, Harrington Police received a tip about the location of Taquen G. Owens, 16, of Greenwood, who was wanted for an incident involving a dispute with his father on June 25. Five State troopers and two Harrington officers responded to an apartment unit at 4 West Liberty St., Harrington. Officers took Owens into custody without incident. Owens and his father engaged in a verbal argument outside the family’s home over a dispute involving the suspect’s girlfriend. At the conclusion of this initial argument, Taquen left. A short time later, the suspect returned. Taquen and his father then engaged in another argument. It has been alleged that Taquen pulled a handgun from his waistband and shot his father several times striking him in the head and stomach. Taquen then fled the scene. The victim was ultimately flown to Christiana Hospital, from Milford, and has been released and is recovering from the gunshot wound. Owens was remanded to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $31,000 secured bond. Charges include first degree attempted murder, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony and possession of a deadly weapon by person prohibited.
Trio arrested in scrap metal thefts
On Augist 4-5, Delaware State Police arrested three persons responsible for scrap metal thefts in Millsboro, Frankford and Delmar. The thefts and attempted thefts occurred on June 25 around 9:15 a.m. On June 25, Delaware State Police were investigating a theft complaint in the 28000 block of Blueberry Lane, Frankford. State Police learned that a black Jeep was parked next to a barn and the occupants were observed placing a tractor hitch in the rear of the Jeep. A witness confronted the suspects and ordered them to put the stolen property back. The suspects, Kevin M. Cooper, 26, William C. Cooper, 22, and Crystal G. Cooper, 25, all of Bridgeville, complied and put back the tractor hitch. The witness copied down the Delaware registration to the Jeep and troopers learned that Crystal

Cooper was the registered owner. The trooper was completing the investigation on Blueberry Lane when he was notified of another theft in progress near Delmar, also involving a black Jeep. The thieves stole five aluminum wheels sitting outside a barn and fled the area. The Coopers continued on to Truitt Road, Millsboro. The trooper was contacting the victim in the second incident and learned of a theft in progress on Truitt Road. The trooper was advised that a Jeep fitting the descriptions previously given pulled into a private drive. One of the Cooper boys walked to the front door, knocked, and upon not receiving an answer, pulled the Jeep along the side of the residence. The suspects then proceeded to steal a tractor battery, cables and welding helmet. The suspects again fled the scene. After conducting follow-up investigations into scrap metal thefts, State Police detectives received information positively linking the three to these three thefts. On August 4, State Police arrested Kevin M. Cooper. William C. Cooper and Crystal G. Cooper were arrested on August 5 for burglary and related theft charges. William and Crystal Cooper were remanded to SCI and Women’s Correctional Institution, respectively, each on $11,200 secured bond. Kevin Cooper was released on $8,000 unsecured bond.

to put in our refrigerator and then come back as she needed to use the food. Miss Addie would also come over at night and sit with my grandmother in the guise of keeping her company. I am not sure that was the actual intent as Miss Addie would routinely fall asleep sitting in the chair next to grandmom within the first few minutes of arriving. Grandmom, who was blinded by eye tumors, knew when Miss Addie would fall asleep because she could hear her snoring. But, like clockwork, Miss Addie would come back to visit Grandmom the next night and share with her how she had not gotten any sleep the night before. I do recall a major testing of the friendship bond between neighbors came when Miss Addie came over to retrieve her pickle loaf lunch meat from our refrigerator to make a sandwich for lunch. The pickle loaf was missing and a grand inquisition ensued. What today seems like a minor issue took on massive emotional frustrations. My older brother Tommy only ate bologna and hated the thought of any meat that would contain bits of pickles (and who knows what else?). My younger brother Jeff was not even eating solid food at that point. To make matters worse my mother
was acutely aware that I absolutely loved pickle loaf lunchmeat. So, suffice to say, all eyes fell on me immediately. I was greatly persecuted over the alleged theft of the pickle loaf lunch meat. So great was the circumstantial evidence against me, that I even started thinking that I possibly stole the pickle loaf in my sleep. I think Mom bought Miss Addie another package of pickle loaf and made great apologies, I am sure, about the “greedy little heathen” who could not respect the sanctity of someone else’s pickle loaf. It was a very emotional experience for me, realizing that there was no way to prove my innocence. Back in those days there was no such thing as DNA testing. However, just a few days later I received my relief when while cleaning and defrosting the refrigerator, Mom pulled out one of the meat trays and down in the lower rear part of the refrigerator was Miss Addie’s missing package of pickle loaf. There is little more satisfying than the attention and adoration you received once you have been wrongly accused by your elders of a wrongdoing. It was more than worth the emotional strain of being wrongly accused.
Our elected officials are ignoring the threats from climate change Consider the following: According to the National ynn arks Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the planet has just come ..the blizzards are through the warmest decade, the warmest 12 months, the warmest just part of the extreme six months, and the warmest April, May, and June on record. precipitation events Nine nations have so far set that are becoming more their all-time temperature records in 2010, including Russia (111 deand more common grees), Niger (118), Sudan (121), Saudi Arabia and Iraq (126 in both), and Pakistan, which also Parts of our peninsula are experiencing set the new all-time record in May: a hair crop-killing drought; other sections of the under 130 degrees.

And the blizzards that we had in February are just part of the extreme precipitation events that are becoming more and more common. All of this is happening because we are steadily putting carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and those gases are acting like a blanket, trapping heat. Scientists can measure the carbon dioxide in the air and can pinpoint its source through analysis of its isotopes. So we know that the CO2 isn’t there through some fluke of nature.

McKibben urges us to turn our anger into action. “We need to tell the truth, resolutely and constantly,” he says in his posting. “Fossil fuel is wrecking the one earth we’ve got. If we want a world that works, we’re going to have to raise our voices.” Well, consider my voice raised. For whatever good it will do, I’m urging our politicians, national, state and local, to read about climate change, to understand it and to act to protect us from it. If nothing is done, if climate change continues unabated, government, whether large or small, will be utterly incapable of protecting us from the consequences.

It’s time to get in touch with your inner locavore
Three years ago, the New Oxford American Dictionary selected “looretta norr cavore” as its word of the year. A locavore is defined as someone who seeks out locally grown and produced foods. Since that time the locavore movement has become more prevalent as consumers have become more and more interested in sustainable food - that which is healthy for consumers and animals, friendly to the environment and humane for workers and animals.

Orecchiette with Garbanzos, Tomatoes, Feta, and Mint Bon Appétit, August 2005 Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings Italy meets Greece in a dish that pairs well with grilled lamb or chicken.
After experiencing remarkably consistent gas prices throughout the summer (within a 5-cent range of $2.70$2.75 since May 28), motorists were greeted by a spike in prices last week. Crude Oil Prices Crude oil finally broke through the key psychological $80 a barrel mark last week, trading at a three-month high of near $83 a barrel a week ago Monday. A weaker U.S. dollar, increased consumer spending, demand increases and the forecast for an active hurricane season all contributed to the recent spike in crude oil prices. However, a jump in jobless data and Labor Department pegging unemployment at 9.5%, sent prices retreating later in the week to close $80.70 a barrel Friday.
1 pound orecchiette (ear-shaped pasta) 1 pound Golden Grape or cherry tomatoes (scant 4 cups), halved 7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint plus sprigs for garnish 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro plus sprigs for garnish 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 15 1/2-ounce can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained, patted dry 6 ounces feta cheese, coarsely crumbled (about 1 1/2 cups) Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, 6 tablespoons olive oil, chopped mint, green onions, chopped cilantro, and garlic in large bowl. Season to taste with salt. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add garbanzo beans and sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add garbanzo beans and pasta to tomato mixture in bowl; toss to coat. Add feta; toss briefly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with mint and cilantro sprigs. Serve warm or let stand at room temperature up to 2 hours. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.) Market tip: Golden Grape tomatoes are sweet, orange-colored cherry tomatoes. They are available at many supermarkets and farmers’ markets this time of year. A look ahead “Last week we saw crude oil trade above the $80-mark for the first time since early May, coupled with recent gasoline demand increases, and that has translated to slight increases in pump prices,” said Jana L. Tidwell, acting manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Over the next four weeks, leading up to Labor Day and the unofficial end of summer, motorists may experience the high end of gas prices for the remainder of 2010 as fuel prices tend to decline sharply during the months of September and October.” Local pricing On Tuesday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.599 to $2.739 a gallon. The high is up one penny in a week, the low up five cents. higher.

She tried to be a good student, turning in her assignments as instructed and on time. But though she was capable, she came from a home where money was stretched and getting required supplies for school sometimes just did not happen. As her teacher crumbled up the assignment, she was humiliated. He threw it in the trash, not even reading it, because it was not written on the “proper” form of paper. When she tried to explain, she was sent to the principal’s office. Ruth Rhoades, though now retired, remembers this experience and how it hurt her so much as a young girl. Yet, rather than turning bitter and dropping out of school, she was blessed with an understanding principal that day who switched her to a more compassionate teacher’s class.

Meetings planned to discuss how to improve Seaford High School By Lynn R. Parks
The Seaford School District will hold two more community meetings to gather input on how to improve its high school. Both meetings will be open to the public but one meeting, on Aug. 17, will be geared toward the district’s Haitian population. An Aug. 18 meeting will be geared toward the district’s Spanish-speaking population. Dr. Shelley Holt, the district’s director of secondary education, said that about 180 people attended two community meetings held last month. While she was disappointed with that number — “I would have loved to have seen more people come out,” she said — she was pleased with the degree of engagement of the participants. “We have pages and pages of notes now that we need to go through,” she said. The district is reworking Seaford High in light of the school’s ranking according to student scores on the state tests. Of five rankings, it is the next-to-lowest in, “Academic Progress.”
“It is no secret that we need to do something different for our students at Seaford High School,” Holt said at the start of last month’s community meeting at the Clarence Street Church of God. “This meeting is about each of you offering a vision. What is it that you want?” Holt showed people at the meeting a video about New Tech, a California-based program that focuses on project-based learning. New Tech “uses technology and inquiry to engage students with issues and questions that are relevant to their lives,” according to its website. “Teachers become facilitators and coaches who guide students to take charge of their own learning…, students become active learners and doers who take responsibility to complete projects.” Speaking from her office last week, Holt said that the response to New Tech from the community has generally been positive. But the district has not made any decision about it or any other program at the high school. “There are still lots of questions about
[New Tech’s] implementation,” she added. “We want to make sure that this is the right fit.” Holt declined to say how much the New Tech program would cost the district. “We don’t have a real solid number yet, and I want to wait until I have that before I release anything to the public,” she said. But she did say that the school would expect to get funding through grants, including the Student Improvement Grant and Race to the Top programs. Holt said that July’s two community meetings did not reveal any surprises. The community’s concerns about the high school are pretty much the same as the district’s concerns, she added. But the meetings are important, she added, to keep communications open between the district and the community. “We don’t want any rumor mills out there working,” she said. “We want to talk openly and honestly with the community about the education of their children.” Holt hopes to have a plan for improvement at the high school drawn out by mid-
Seaford Council considering smoking ban in parks By Lynn R. Parks
Following a citizen’s request, the city of Seaford is considering banning smoking in its parks. Brandy Parks, who lives on Long Branch Road, wrote a letter to the council July 21, complaining that people at the city’s sports complex were smoking. “While there are considerate smokers, there are others that are sitting on the bleachers, standing in line at the concession stand or hanging out near the dugouts where the smoke is being inhaled by our children,” she wrote. City manager Dolores Slatcher read the letter to members of the city council Tuesday night, and asked them what they thought about a smoking ban. “We have started a draft of the law, but we wanted council’s input before moving forward,” she said. Slatcher warned that enforcing a smoking ban would be difficult. “We are not
going to call the police out for somebody smoking,” she said. “It would be nearly impossible to haul somebody into court because of smoking in a public place. We shouldn’t set false hopes.” The ban would be enforced, she added, through “peer pressure” — people who are at the parks and who see someone smoking would have more authority behind their request that the smoker stop. Slatcher said that the city could enact an outright ban on smoking in its parks, “recognizing that a lot of sports activities do draw smokers” and that the parks “are public lands.” Or it could limit smoking to designated areas, an idea that appealed to councilwoman Pat Jones. “You can’t smoke inside anymore, so where can you smoke?” she asked. “These parks are outside and smokers probably don’t think that their smoke would bother anyone else.”
Inspirational music and ice cream free at Ross Mansion A free Inspirational Concert by the Sussex Mass Choir along with an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Festival will take place on the lawn of the Ross Mansion on Sunday, August 22. There will be free ice cream cones starting at 5:30 p.m. The concert will start at 6:30 p.m. This concert is sponsored by Frank Raskauskas of Mortgage Network Solutions, making it a free evening for all to enjoy. The Seaford Historical Society and the whole community are grateful for this kindness. The Sussex Mass Choir started as a bible study group in 1981. It has been under the direction of Robert Brown for 21 years. Rosemary Martin, who directs
several church choirs in the Seaford area, has handled the arrangements. The group today consists of 35 voices. The program will include music from the 1860s commemorating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Ross Mansion, which is being celebrated by the Seaford Historical Society all of this year. Some negro spirituals will also be presented, paying tribute to the slaves who served during the 1800s. Costumed dancers and poetry reading will be interspersed with the singing. It is suggested that persons attending the concert bring lawn chairs or blankets to provide comfortable seating. The concert is expected to last about 90 minutes.
Councilwoman Leanne Phillips-Lowe wondered how the citizens of Seaford feel about a smoking ban. “This is just one letter,” she said. The council agreed to reconsider the smoking ban at the next meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 24. In the meantime, they hope to hear from members of the public and gather a sense of how the community feels. In addition to the sports complex, the city’s parks are: Gateway Park in downtown, Kiwanis Park on Stein Highway, Soroptimist Park on Middleford Road, Nutter Park on Norman Eskridge Highway and the Jay’s Nest, near the sports complex. The city also recently opened Hooper’s Landing, a golf course, and the Seaford Community Swim Center, both on the former grounds of the Seaford Golf and Country Club. Smoking is already banned on all property of the Seaford School District. That includes the football stadium and the baseball, softball, hockey and soccer fields.
September, and implemented next year. The plan will be fluid, she said, as parents groups, teachers and administrators will continue to discuss it. In the meantime, teachers will continue to receive training in new ways of teaching. In addition, the school will start using a new ninth-grade math program this school year. Last year, only about 35 percent of SHS ninth graders met the state standard in math. For your information The Seaford School District will hold two community meetings next week to discuss revamping programs at Seaford High School. The meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 17, will be conducted in English as well as in Haitian Creole. The meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 18, will be conducted in English as well as in Spanish. Both meetings will start at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in the high school auditorium. For details, call 629-4587 or e-mail director of secondary education Shelley Holt, sholt@seaford. k12.de.us.
Westview residents invited to meeting on street lights
By Lynn R. Parks The city of Seaford will hold a workshop next Tuesday, Aug. 17, to allow citizens of the Westview area to look over plans for the placement of new induction street lights. Work on installing the new lights is expected to start after Labor Day. City manager Dolores Slatcher said that Westview residents will be able to see where the new light poles will go. They will also be able to make suggestions about the locations of the light poles. But Slatcher cautioned that the locations will not be able to be changed a lot. They are determined primarily by how the light spreads over the street, she added. “If there’s a concern, we can move the poles a little bit, a foot or two one way or the other,” she said. “But we won’t be able to move them much.” The workshop will be in city hall, from 4 to 6 p.m. For details, call 629-9173.

Stealing from youth
For three years our youngest son has grown and maintained his own garden. He sells his produce at his produce stand in front of our home on Woodpecker Road here in Seaford. He has earned a good reputation with his customers and has made friends in doing so. We are very proud of him. It has been a very enjoyable learning experience for him as our Lil’ Farmer. We wish to thank all of his loyal customers who visit his produce stand often. However, the enjoyable part of this ended this past Sunday when he had to learn a hard lesson about theft and dishonest people. On Sunday afternoon, (yes, a Sunday) in broad daylight, sometime between 12 noon and 7 p.m. someone stole a large amount of his produce, all of his money and even ripped off and stole the money container that was secured to his produce stand. What kind of person would steal from a young child?! If this person was truely in need, as Christians we would have been willing to help them. However, given the circumstances I highly doubt that such is the case. We would ask that whoever did this to return what you stole from him. If anyone saw anything pertaining to this or if anyone has any information about this case, please contact me or the Delaware State Police. Brian Howard
Supporting third parties
In last week’s Star frequent contributor Frank Calio addressed the futility of voting for 3rd party candidates. On a purely practical basis, Frank, you have a point. However, in times such as these, citizens must vote their conscience to promote real change. In the past two years, your Democratic Party has been hijacked by a radical progressive and his even more radical supporters. It is no longer the party of Harry Truman or Jack Kennedy. It has become the party of Saul Alinsky and William Ayers. It is a party that has taken over a sizable portion of the economy, think General Motors, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and health care. It is a party that supports open borders and even fights a sovereign state in court, while ignoring sanctuary cities that flaunt opposition to Federal law. Before you retaliate, I realize George W. Bush was not much better. This letter is about principles, not party.

The Democratic Party is now led by President Barack Obama, who has openly criticized his nation in foreign capitals. He has belittled our history, believing our country was not worthy prior to his administration. He must have listened to his wife, Michelle, who only now is proud of her country. Frank, you are critical of the Tea Party movement. These loosely knit patriots are driven by their belief in our Constitution and limited government, not party loyalty. I know they don’t fit the organizational mold of Obama’s Chicago “community organizing,” labor unions, or Acorn. They are people who honestly care about our future. Yes, I am a Republican. However, lately I have been turned off by my own party, which seems devoid of ideas. The first successful Republican presidential candidate was Abraham Lincoln. Ironically, he was elected only four years after his party, at that time a third party, was formed. These are times reminiscent of the 1850s, which require conscience, not party loyalty.

Tax credits key to health reform By Jayne Armstrong For decades, America’s small business owners have asked for more affordable health insurance coverage and more tax relief. The new health reform law – the Affordable Care Act – provides both. First, it offers tax credits for small employers who pay at least half of their employees’ health insurance premiums. Starting this year, businesses with less than 25 employees who make an average of $50,000 or less may be eligible for a credit of up to 35 percent of the premiums they pay on their employee’s behalf. For small nonprofits, it’s up to 25 percent. In 2014, those credits will increase to up to 50 percent and 35 percent, respectively. Also in 2014, health insurance “exchanges” for small businesses will open in every state. Currently, small businesses pay as much as 18 percent more than large firms for the same coverage. The exchanges will allow businesses with as many as 100 employees to pool their risk together, lower their administrative costs and negotiate more effectively with insurance companies. According to the Congressional Budget Office, this could help drive down premiums by as much as four percent in the marketplace of small-business health plans. The tax credits and the exchanges are just two of the new tools that will help small businesses get health insurance, some for the first time. Maryanne Murray, director of Griswold Special Care, a Newark-based non-medical care provider for the elderly and disabled with 15 employees, believes the tax credit will have an enormous impact on her small business. Over the past five years she has seen her premiums increase 30 percent each year. Although she continues to pay 100 percent of the premiums for her employ-
ees, she had to shift some of the expenses to them by increasing the deductible. The tax credit will reduce her costs which she can pass on to her employees by reducing their out of pocket expenses. Even if a small business owner with 50 or fewer employees still decides not to buy health insurance with these incentives, there is no penalty. They’re exempt from the employer responsibility provision of the new law. In this case, small business workers will be able to use individual tax credits to shop for insurance in the exchanges. And it’s important to note that 96 percent of businesses with more than 50 employees already offer coverage. The new law will go a long way toward strengthening America’s overall entrepreneurial spirit. For example, it will outlaw pre-existing conditions, giving more Americans the ability to break out of “job lock” and start their own companies. Prospective entrepreneurs shouldn’t be held back just because they fear losing their employersponsored coverage. The new law will also prohibit insurance companies from dramatically increasing premiums for a small business just because one worker gets sick. Overall, the Affordable Care Act is a critical tool that will help millions of small business owners provide health insurance to people who they often consider to be members of their extended family – their employees. As a nation, we owe them nothing less as they work to grow, create jobs, and lead us toward full economic recovery. For more information about how the Affordable Care Act will help your small business, visit www.healthcare.gov.

Give Laurel new schools
I am not writing this persuasive letter for recognition or even accolades. I am writing this for the safety of my peers and the future doctors, lawyers, and teachers educated in the Laurel School District. Even though the Laurel School District provides world class learning, the buildings that we learn in today are not reasonable or suitable for learning. Now, don’t get me wrong! We do learn and take orders from faculty and our wonderful members of the board, but the schools have things out of place. For example: the ceilings are leaking, the floors are creaking. Yes, I know that the custodians and maintenance crews have a job to uphold and by far are doing a very good job. This summer in the heat I decided to get a job where my learning began, at Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary School, alongside a wonderful principal, Judy Noll. In addition to the faculty and staff, we, as the students, support building new schools. This would give us a better environment to learn in with state-of-the-art technology. We need new schools. We need schools with access to a better football field. We need a place when I walk down the hallway, it won’t crack or creak, a place where students from all races, ethnic groups, religions, would come to be part of a superior school system, the Laurel School District. Please vote “Yes!” for the referendum. Eddie D. Horsey
More to being ‘saved’
I am a regular reader of the Seaford Star and enjoy your local news coverage. I also enjoy the fact that you are willing to make a statement for your faith. Every week you have been running an ad which asks the question, “What Must I Do to be Saved?” It is a valid question that we all must, at some point in our lives, consider. You do a good job of choosing verses from the Letter to the Romans that addresses much of the answer. All of the quoted verses are true and valid; they just do not tell the entire story as presented in the Bible. May I suggest that you have left out two important verses from Romans?

Romans 6: verses 3 and 4. Verse 3: Or do you not know that as many of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Verse 4: Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. When the sinners on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) first asked the question, “What must I do to be saved?” the Apostle Peter gave a much shorter answer. He told them in Acts 2:38, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” If that answer was good enough for the Apostles, should it not be sufficient for us today?
