The Bridgeville Commission held a public hearing on a building that was cited as unsafe by the Dangerous Building Committee. Property owner/landlord Joe Burden spoke at Monday’s meeting and told the Commission he believed he could bring the building up to code. “I don’t think it should be demolished,” said Burden, who said he saw other houses in town that are in worse condition. Town Manage Bonnie Walls noted that the town is working on the problem of unsafe buildings one at a time and is trying to make the town look the best it can. Burden had a licensed contractor with him at the meeting and said he is in the process of selling the property, which is located at 603 North Cannon Street. Walls suggested that he meet with the town’s code enforcement officer with his plan and Continued to page four

a timeframe for completion. Commissioner Mike Collison suggested giving Burden and the prospective home buyer 60 days to present their plan. They would then need to provide a start date and a completion date when the plan is submitted. The Commission will receive a report from the Dangerous Building Committee on property located at 13 Gum Street during its September meeting. Walls reported that the state has cut its municipal street aid fund for all municipalities. The elimination of funds means that the town will not receive $54,000 in state funding for street repair. The town has sent letters to apartments buildings regarding 911 addresses and is working on letters to be sent to businesses.
All properties must have reflective numbers that are the proper size. Bridgeville homeowners have received notification of the requirements from the county. Walls also told the Commission that Brian Phillips has been contacted to give his opinion on how to freshen up and put sealant on a mural by Jack Lewis which is located downtown. Phillips did work on a mural at Woodbridge High School. Bill Remington of Davis, Bowen, and Friedel of Salisbury, the town’s engineer, announced the semi retirement of Annie Williams, who has worked for the company for 20 years and has worked with the town. “The service of Davis, Bowen, and Friedel to the town will be continued,” said Remington.
Grant will be used for new police car By Lynn R. Parks
The Seaford Police Department will soon have a new patrol car. The Seaford City Council Tuesday night approved using a $15,000 grant from Sussex County toward the purchase of a 2009 Crown Victoria. The balance of the cost of the car, $8,231, will be paid out of the city’s budget. City manager Dolores Slatcher said that the new car will replace a 2005 vehicle

Two other patrol cars are also currently out of commission, one with a broken intake valve and the other in need of a new fuel pump. “The department is in critical need of getting a car back on the road,” Slatcher said. Equipment from the old cruiser, including the radio, emergency lights, siren and prisoner cage, will be put in the new police car.

No Cup of Joe in August for now Senator Joe Booth
Senator Joe Booth (R-Georgetown) will not hold his twice-monthly “Cup of Joe with Joe” community conversations for the remainder of the summer. As representative of the 37th District, for the past several years, Joe Booth has held informal gatherings on two mornings each month to provide a chance for face-to-face meetings with constituents to hear what was on people’s minds. Most recently, the “Cup of Joe” events have been held the 2nd Thursday of the month at the Georgetown Family Restaurant and the 4th Thursday of the month at Cafe Azafran in Lewes. Senator Booth said, “I will definitely get back to hosting Cup of Joe events in the fall, with a schedule of times and places to be announced.”
Award winning ‘Liar’ returns to tell his tall tales
Author, storyteller and five-time champion of the West Virginia Liars Contest, Bil Lepp has been weaving hilarious tall tales for 15 years. He has toured the country and will appear in Delaware on Saturday, Aug. 22 at Killens Pond State Park Nature Center in Felton, at 7 p.m. Lepp made his Delaware debut in December 2007, when he regaled audiences with his colorful, expertly woven, side-splitting tales.

St. John’s United Methodist Church is collecting school supplies. The need is greater this year than ever before, but with many communities participating, and everyone working together, the need can be met. Supplies collected for each community stay in that community. St. John’s in Seaford has worked with seven or more churches the past few years to collect school supplies.

School personnel then picked up the supplies, and they were distributed to qualified students by their own guidance counselors. St. John’s 2009 closing date is Aug. 16. Packing will be done on Monday, Aug. 17. For more information, call Ruth Rhoades at 629-0789.

Sussex Habitat to participate in national green building initiative Sussex County Habitat for Humanity has been selected to participate in a national green building initiative of The Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity International, Partners in Sustainable Building. The $30 million green building program will provide funds and resources over a five-year period to help Habitat affiliates build 5,000 homes that meet En-
ergy Star guidelines or a nationally recognized green building standard. These features incorporate the use of energy-efficient equipment and water-conserving fixtures and help ensure good indoor air quality. Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is one of 123 Habitat affiliates across 45 states that was selected to participate in the first
Delaware receives big refund for public library Internet services costs
Governor Jack Markell and State Librarian Annie Norman have announced that the Delaware Division of Libraries has successfully applied to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) for a discount on its public library networking and Internet service costs, saving taxpayers $292,284 in Fiscal Year 2010. The discounts, which began July, 1 will come in the form of a refund and will be applied to sustain and upgrade the network infrastructure as technologies evolve, thus expanding user access to the Internet, useful databases and other electronic services. Markell’s administration is the first to pursue such discounts on a statewide basis, demonstrating its commitment to maximizing funding from available non-state resources. In the current economic recession, people have been depending even more heavily on local libraries to search and apply for jobs, learn about available social services, and expand their knowledge of issues such as money management and healthy living. The Federal Universal Service Fund was created by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) in 1997 to help open the nation’s telecommunications infrastructure to all residents, both urban and rural. Telecommunications providers must contribute to the Fund through an assessment on their interstate and international revenues. One of the Fund’s four programs is the Schools and Libraries Program, commonly known as “E-Rate.” It is administered by the USAC under the direction of the FCC and uses Fund monies to provide utility rate discounts of 20 - 90 percent to assist most schools and libraries in the United States in obtaining affordable telecommunications and Internet access. The actual percentage refund is determined by the level of poverty and the urban/rural status of the population served. The State of Delaware received a 69% discount on its public library telecommunications costs. All Kent and Sussex County public libraries, along with two libraries in Wilmington, formed a consortium with the Delaware Division of Libraries to apply for the E-Rate refunds for telecommunications services they collectively receive from Verizon.
year of the national rollout that begins at the end of August. Sussex County Habitat will be granted $3,000 for each home built to Energy Star standards and up to $5,000 for each home built to a higher green standard. Sussex County Habitat and the other 122 affiliates were chosen through a grant process and, combined, will build nearly 1,500 sustainable homes in 2009 and
2010 alone. The grant process is annual, which gives other Habitat affiliates the opportunity to participate in the program as well. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, benefits or features of homes built to this standard include: • up to 50 percent less energy use than their conventional counterparts, • reductions of up to a third in
indoor water consumption, and • incorporation of durable materials lowering maintenance costs over the life of the structure, making homes more affordable for longer. Partners in Sustainable Building is the first partnership between The Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity at the national level in the United States.

First-time homebuyer finds help from tax credit program By Lynn R. Parks
Alan Fogleman Jr. was typical of many people who’ve never bought a home before, said real estate agent Ed Higgins. “Alan was timid,” said Higgins, an agent with Century 21 Ramey Real Estate in Seaford. “He was very cautious about buying a house.” But Fogleman, 44 and a single parent, recently took the leap. And he and his 10-year-old son, also named Alan, couldn’t be happier, he said. “I never thought that I would own a house,” he added. “But it is a great feeling. Things really came together in a very quick time.” Fogleman, a refrigeration technician with Atlantic Refrigeration, was able to take advantage of the federal government’s first-time homebuyer’s credit. Because he had never owned a house before, he also qualified for the county’s forgiveness of its 1.5-percent property transfer tax. And he got a mortgage with a low interest rate — 4.5 percent. “It was all pretty unbelievable,” he said. “I wondered, ‘Are the planets all lining up for me?’” Higgins agreed that everything in Fogleman’s case ran smoothly. “Alan made out really well,” he said. “You always hear about the bad things and this is a good story.” But, he added, there are a lot of people who are shy about buying a house and who could have the kind of good results that Fogleman had. “A lot of people who have always rented are on the fence,” he said. “They don’t understand how the whole thing works and
Woodland Ferry resumes service
The Department of Transportation announces that the Woodland Ferry resumed service on Thursday, August 6, after being docked for repairs to the thrusters. During the downtime, DelDOT repaired and reinstalled the thruster, checked the props and corrected other minor items. DelDOT extended the ramp on the Bethel side which improves access for vehicles boarding and exiting the vessel. The ferry recently underwent a successful, routine U.S. Coast Guard annual inspection to ensure compliance with United States Coast Guard regulations.
they are afraid to make that first phone call” to a real estate agent. Fogleman’s new home is in Ross Station, a small development north of Seaford. Original listing price was $192,900 and after making an offer of $175,000, Fogleman ended up paying $179,000 for the home. By paying some of the “points” associated with the sale — points are fees paid to a lender; a point equals 1 percent of the selling price — Fogleman was able to get his interest rate down to 4.5 percent, said Treg Adams with MetLife Home Loans, Salisbury, Md. Interest rates at the time were at about 5 percent, Adams said; rates now are at about 5.75 percent, still very low, he said. The federal tax credit means that Fogleman will be able to claim an $8,000 credit on either his 2008 or 2009 income taxes. The credit, for 10 percent of the home’s purchase price up to $8,000, is available to people who have not owned their principal residences in the past three years. To qualify for the credit, single individuals can make no more than $75,000 and couples can make no more than $150,000. The tax credit, which does not have to be repaid to the federal government, is set to expire Dec. 1, meaning that to qualify for the credit, homebuyers have to have settlement, the last step in the home buying process, by Nov. 30. Once a buyer has decided on a house and an offer has been accepted, it takes 45 to 60 days for everything to go through, Adams said. The credit is “refundable,” meaning that even new homeowners who didn’t have to pay $8,000 in income taxes will receive the full credit. For example, a homeowner who had to pay $4,000 in taxes and who had that much withheld through payroll taxes will get all of that refunded plus a check for the remaining $4,000. Homebuyers who receive the tax credit have to use the house they bought as their primary residence for at least three years after the purchase. The tax credit and the low interest rates mean that many people who are currently renting could be financially better off by buying a home, Higgins said. Fogleman’s mortgage payment is about $900 a month and he was paying rent of about $700 a month. But now, he said, he has a yard, something that he did not have

at the Pine Street Extended apartment he and Alan were living in. And Alan, who is autistic and who was hesitant to leave the apartment, is “really happy” in his new home. “Owning my own home is like a breath
of fresh air,” Fogleman said. For your information For details about the first-time homebuyers’ tax credit provided under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, visit www.irs.gov.

Ariel Evans chosen to receive Delaware Aviation Youth award Ariel Evans, 17, of Georgetown, will receive the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame (DAHF) Youth Aviation Achievement Award on Saturday, Oct. 3 at the DAHF annual honors banquet at UD’s Clayton Hall in Newark. Ariel’s love of flying came from her fear of heights when her father took her hang gliding to conquer this fear. Ariel went on to become the youngest hang glider pilot in the United States at the age of 12. At 14, she competed in the Kitty Hawk Kites Hang Gliding Spectacular where she won first place in the novice division of the dune tactical flying competition. She was the first woman and first person under the age of 18 to win. In 2007, 15, Ariel chose to research the effect of hang glider winglet design on induced drag for a science fair project. She studied the effects of induced drag using a homemade water tank to simulate airspeed by water flow. Her project won 1st place at the Delaware Valley Science Fair (DVSF) 10th grade division. In the spring of 2008, Ariel competed at the Intel International Science Fair in Atlanta, Ga. against more than 1,500 students from 42 different countries. She won a second place specialty award from
versity in Philadelphia. This past spring, she traveled to Reno, Nev., to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair where she won 4th place in the Engineering category and was awarded full scholarships to Oregon Institute of Technology and to Sierra Nevada College. “Besides my interest in aeronautics, I

Rain Barrel presentation
On Monday, Aug. 17, at 6:30 p.m., Jennifer Nelson of DNREC will present a program on rain barrels at the Greenwood Public Library. A rain barrel is a system that collects and stores rain water from your roof, providing an ample supply of free “soft water” for gardens, flower pots and car and window washing. The system can save most homeowners up to 1,300 gallons of water during peak summer months and also decreases the impact of runoff to streams and the Chesapeake Bay. Nelson will present a basic overview of the rain barrel system and then demonstrate how one is made. The barrel will then be given away through a drawing to someone in the audience. The program is free and open to all, and no registration is required. For more information, contact the Greenwood Library at 302-349-5309.

Why should I worship a god that cannot forgive me without killing his own son? If God is all-knowing, he would have known me, my mind or my actions, then why did He create me only to torture me for being who I am for all eternity?
God knew Satan existed, that Good and Evil co-exist, He knew that anything He created pure and holy was subject to the influence of Evil. Because of this, He knew man would fall, as Evil is easier to do than Good. To miss the bulls-eye is always easier than being accurate. Knowing this before creation (2Corinthians 2:7) and being just, God showed His love by making a way back to Him through the only means possible to remove the punishment of the rejection of God by God the Son taking the punishment. Because it is not impossible to live a perfect life, as Christ showed us, but all fail by nature, God now must be just (as is His nature) and reject all who turn up their noses and refuse the great sacrifice that was offered for them to come back. He knew and loved you and that’s why He sent His Son.

Wet summer hurts tomatoes - the most popular fruit The cool, wet weather of June and July was a disappointment to oretta norr vacationers, businesses who rely on vacationers and local farmers. A very big blow was dealt to the growers of the world’s most popular fruit – the tomato.

Place a small saucepan over medium heat and add the butter. When it’s about half melted, throw in the garlic and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, allowing the garlic to take on a little bit of color. Remove from the heat and brush this mixture on both sides of each slice of bread. 2. Oil the grill racks. Preheat your grill using all burners set on high and with the lid closed for 10 to 12 minutes. 3. Place the bread on the grill, close the lid, and cook, turning once, until well marked. Careful here; depending on the moisture content of the bread, this could happen as quickly as 2 minutes (or about 1 minute on each side), but it usually takes about 4 minutes. Place the tomatoes on the grill, close the lid, and cook for a few minutes per side. 4. Remove the bread to a cutting board, cut into 3/4-inch cubes, and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the tomatoes, onion, olive oil, vinegar, herbs, salt, and pepper. Toss gently with your hands to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings if you desire. Serve at room temperature.

Carper learns about Environmental Training Center
Police Journal Area man wanted in felony case
Investigators from Delaware State Police Troop 4 need help in locating a domestic assault suspect wanted from an incident in July. On July 26, a 44-year-old female victim responded Jones to work at an undisclosed location in Bridgeville. She got out of her car and walked toward the building when she was confronted by her ex-boyfriend, Wendell Jones, 47, of North Tara Road in Federalsburg, Md. Jones assaulted the victim by punching her. The victim made her way into work and Jones followed. He then continued the assault and even tried to drag the victim back outside. Jones then took the victim’s cell phone, car keys and glasses. A computer inquiry revealed Jones is on probation in Maryland and was not supposed to leave the state. Jones, who has been contacted several times, refuses to surrender to authorities. He is wanted for the following offenses: stalking (felony), unlawful imprisonment (misdemeanor), third degree assault (misdemeanor) and theft (misdemeanor). Anyone who knows of Jones’ whereabouts is asked to call the Troop 4 Domestic Violence Unit at 302-856-5851 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
Troopers save man from suicide
On Saturday, Aug. 8 at 8 p.m., the State Police Dispatch Center, SUSCOM, received a call from a distraught 47-yearold man who advised he wanted to commit suicide. The dispatchers honed in on his location and kept him on the phone as long as they could. Eventually, the subject in question discontinued the call. A Troop 7 patrol officer, Trooper Dean, was dispatched to underneath the Nassau Bridge in Lewes as this was where SUSCOM believed the subject to be. When the officer arrived to the underside of the bridge, he located the man who had hung himself. The trooper acted quickly and solicited the help of two private citizens. Together, they lifted the man and removed the rope from his neck. Emergency Medical Services was called to the scene and the patient was transported to Beebe Medical Center. Upon his release, he was provided with mental health services.

State promotes ‘Clunkers’ program
State officials are encouraging Delawareans to trade their gas-guzzling vehicles in for more fuel-efficient models under the federal Car Allowance Rebate System. Utilizing the credit available through the federal Recovery Act, Markell said, will give a boost to Delaware’s economy by helping auto dealers and help our environment by reducing harmful emissions. “The ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program shows we grow our economy while also doing something good for the environ-

ment,” Markell said. “This program will spur purchases of new cars that will stimulate the automobile industry in the state and create jobs while consuming less gasoline.” According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Delaware auto dealers have requested more than $1.5 million reimbursement through the CARS program, and that number is expected to increase significantly now that the U.S. Senate has extended the program. an 11-cent (or 4%) gain on the week. Since Memorial Day weekend, gas prices have climbed 22 cents or 9% from $2.41, the AAA reports.

“(Improved) water quality and potable safe water are getting to be in higher demand all around the world because of growing populations and more contamination,” said Dr. Peter Hartsock, a captain in the U.S. Public Health Service at the National Institutes of Health. “The work that they are doing here is critical around the world as well as in Delaware and the United States.” Dr. Carter is working with friends Dr. Hartsock and Mr. Gregory Gagarin, a founder of the Russian Cultural Centre in Washington, D.C., as well as contacts in Russia to set the groundwork which they hope will result in a training program in Russia. “It (Delaware Tech’s Environmental Training program) is so high quality that it has gone all over the world; it has been in the Middle East,” added Dr. Hartsock. “The Russians are very interested as they have terrible problems with their water. Seventy percent of babies in Russia are born with something seriously wrong with them.” According to the National Intelligence Council website, water pollution is the most serious concern in Russia and less than half of the population has access to safe drinking water.
Water and wastewater instructors, college administrators and friends of Delaware Technical & Community College gathered to brief U.S. Senator Carper on the college’s role as a leader in water and wastewater education. The Environmental Training Center at the Jack F. Owens Campus in Georgetown trains water and wastewater operators in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It is also the main contractor for the Philadelphia Water Department and has performed a large training program for the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority. On an international level, faculty members at the Environmental Training Center have established an operator training program in Bulgaria and are halfway through the establishment of a similar program in Jordan. According to Jerry Williams, department chair, the center is also in preliminary discussions with three other countries. According to Dr. William Carter, one of Delaware Tech’s founding fathers, Carper was invited “to get a better understanding of the tremendous work taking place at the Owens Campus that is benefiting people all over the world.”
MORNING STAR • AUGUST 13 - 19, 2009
An honors graduate of the school of hard knocks August is here and, for most of us adults, it is simply a reminder that summer is almost over and we will be heading into the crisp, cool days of autumn followed by the frigid, crippling cold of winter. However, to school children across America, August signals that last “hurrah” for the lazy days of summer and vacation away from school. Many of these young people, like me at their age, dread to see the school doors open. As I grow older and experience much more of life, I regret that I did not commit myself more to school. I graduated from high school and now I am even going to college. The first harsh reality was that I had a background riddled with a lack of study discipline. I find myself hearing Dad’s all familiar verbal drill ringing in my head some days. It would always come right after I got my report card. For me this was a dismal time around my house. My older brother Tommy would come home with a report card that was so good it actually shimmered with gold trimmings. Dad would take the report card from my brother, fully aware that he was
The look he would give me as he waited for me to hand him the report card was much like the look of a school custodian who was about to take on the job of cleaning up a clogged toilet.
about to witness true genius documented. After he gave Tommy the customary, “Good job, bunk,” he would turn to me. The look he would give me as he waited for me to hand him the report card was much like the look of a school custodian who was about to take on the job of cleaning up a clogged toilet. I was always reluctant to give him my report card. I would consider losing it on the way home from school, or maybe telling him that I had been attacked on the way home and my report card stolen. But, I knew all of these would only delay the pending misery. So, I would throw a big smile on my face and hand Dad the report card. I think there were actually times when Dad would hope
that he would look at the report card and find that I had finally “buckled down” and made the grade. NOT. He would look at the report card and say almost the same thing he had said when he got the last report card, “Son, it would be different if I thought this was as good as you could do. But, you are an A or B student.” Then he would throw in that line that really stung, “You are actually smarter than your brother, Tommy.” Who was he kidding? Albert Einstein could have taken classes under my brother, Tommy. I knew my brother Tommy and I was no Tommy Windsor. I was smart enough to realize that. I certainly was not smart enough to take advantage of the learning opportunities at school. My presence in the classroom was much like a running generator motor during a power outage; it has to be there, but nobody wants to hear it.
When I wasn’t acting like a retarded ape, I was asleep. You always hear about teachers waking sleeping students with a tap on the shoulder or on his or her desk. In my case, I would not be surprised to find that some of my teachers found a way to secretly drug me and induce an hour long coma. I would fall asleep in class and the classroom would be empty when I woke up. That would not have been so disturbing to me unless it was during a fire drill. I guess I was not always the most popular person in school. I remember my 10th grade typing teacher wrote in my yearbook that I was the “most likely to wind up in a rehab.” But, as my Uncle Stanford once said, “There are those of us who graduate from high school
and others of us who graduate from the ‘school of hard knocks.’ I am a certified, honors graduate of the school of hard knocks. There is no greater or more ruthless teacher than life itself. Those of us who choose to treat the gift of education as nothing more than a social gathering and a captive audience for our buffoonish side shows, will one day “pay the piper.” I have so many times wished that I had actually listened and participated in the classroom experience. I have no doubt life would have been much easier and, though I am happy with the several jobs I hold, things could have run much smoother. Now, in hindsight, I think Dad was right. I probably was an A or B student; I just lacked the most important source of knowledge – common sense.

County issues property tax bills Sussex County is taking its annual tax billing into the digital age, printing fewer paper bills this year to collect money that will fund local government services and schools. This month, the County’s Treasury Division will issue more than 167,000 annual tax bills for the 2010 fiscal year, totaling an estimated $100.6 million in revenue. However, the County will print and mail only 129,000 paper bills. The remaining 38,000 will go ‘virtual,’ through computers, to mortgage lenders, requiring no paper, postage or time to distribute. Amanda M. Bennett, director of the County’s Treasury Division, said 2009 is the first year that certain property owners will not receive a paper copy of their statements. The County has shifted to a paperless billing system for those property owners whose taxes are paid by mortgage lenders, through what is known as escrow accounts. Property owners with escrow accounts have their taxes collected as part of their mortgage payment. They can view their tax bills online, and can still request a paper copy of their account’s status, if needed. “We have reduced the number
of paper copies printed by almost 25 percent,” Ms. Bennett said. “That represents a significant savings, almost $21,000, in the amount of paper, time and postage that goes into producing and mailing these documents. That’s a big savings, especially in these tighter financial times, and I hope that number only increases in the future.” Annual tax bills include County property taxes, as well as County sewer and water, tax ditch and street lighting fees, where applicable. Additionally, tax bills include local school district taxes, which are collected by the County, but turned over to the State. Delaware law requires Sussex County to bill property owners for school taxes on behalf of the eight public school districts within the county. Approximately 10 percent to 14 percent of the typical residential tax bill is for County property taxes. Bills began mailing in the first week of August, and will continue throughout the month. Payment is due by Sept. 30. Sussex County accepts tax payments by cash, check, money order or credit card. Taxpayers have different options to make their payments. These include:
• Through lender - Many taxpayers have their annual taxes paid out of an escrow account by their mortgage lenders. If these taxpayers have any questions regarding the status of their escrow accounts, they should contact their lenders. • Online - Payment can be made on the Internet, with the use of most major credit cards or by check. Go to www.sussexcountyde.gov/e-service/propertytaxes/ and select “Make a Payment” on the left side for more information. • By mail - Property owners can mail their tax payments using the return envelopes included in their statements. Bills should be addressed to the Sussex County Treasury Division, P.O. Box 429, Georgetown, DE 19947. All payments sent by mail must be postmarked by Sept. 30 to avoid the 1.5 percent penalty, per month, on unpaid balances. • In person or by phone - The County’s tax office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The office is located on the second floor, Room 252, of the County Administrative Offices building, 2 The Circle, in Georgetown. For more information, call 302-855-7760.

District III rallies to top USA East, 2-1, in World Series opener
Kelsey Oliphant smashes game-tying home run By Mike McClure The Laurel Senior League softball team opened the Senior League World Series with a 2-1 win over USA East in a pitcher’s duel on Sunday, but it wasn’t easy. The District III champs were held hitless through the first five innings before Kelsey Oliphant led off the sixth with a solo home run. Brooke Evans added an infield hit before scoring the winning run on a wild pitch. Laurel hurler Stephanie Wheatley struck out eight and allowed one run on two hits in seven innings for the win. “They had me on my toes. I knew I had to work all of my pitches to get on top of them,” Wheatley said. “The sixth inning was the greatest feeling ever. When Kelsey hit that home run I knew we were going to take care of that (the game).” USA East (Haverstraw, N.Y. ) pitcher Krystn Benson was equally impressive as she allowed two runs on two hits and struck out 10 in six innings in the loss. She also walked six batters. “The girl (Benson) pitched a great game. It looked like we got down on ourselves a little,” said Laurel manager Jeff Evans. “The young players got a taste of the World Series.” Each pitcher retired the side in order and struck out a pair in the first inning. USA East put a pair of runners on base in the top of the second when Destiney
Jones walked and Benson was hit by a pitch. Tiffany Alliano reached on a fielder’s choice as District III shortstop Yanni Davis threw to third baseman Mariah Dickerson for the force at third. Wheatley recorded two more strikeouts to end the threat. Benson sent Laurel down in order in the second, recording two more strikeouts. Mariah Dickerson drew a walk in the top of the third, giving Laurel its first base runner of the game. Pinch runner Logan Green moved up on a passed ball and Kelsey Oliphant walked, but Benson was able to throw Brooke Evans out at first after fielding a slap hit in front of the mound. USA East got on the board in the top of the fourth as Jones hit a one out single and Benson tripled her in for the first run of the game. Wheatley struck out two more batters to keep her team within a run. Wheatley fielded three comebackers and threw to first baseman Jenna Cahall to retire the side in the top of the sixth. Kelsey Oliphant ended Benson’s no-hit and shutout bid with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the inning to knot the score at 1-1. “If anybody was going to tie the game with a home run it was Kelsey Oliphant. She’s been doing it all year,” Evans said. District III was not done. Brooke Evans reached first on a slap hit, went to

A view from the cheap seats By Mike McClure, Star Sports Editor

Senior softball continued second on a wild pitch, and scored the go ahead run on a wild pitch. Alexis Oliphant was hit by a pitch and moved to third on the two wild pitches. Cassidy Taylor walked and stole second and Wheatley was intentionally walked to load the bases. Benson recorded a strikeout and induced a popup to keep her team within a run going into the final inning. Wheatley quickly got a pop out and a fly out, but the third out was a little more elusive. After a few close pitches that were called balls by the home plate umpire, Wheatley induced a fly out to end the game and seal her team’s win in the opener. “It (the win) tells you we can battle
back. It says that we’re strong minded. We’re physically and mentally strong,” said Kelsey Oliphant, who said she went to the plate in the sixth inning looking for a base hit. “I’m so proud, they found a way to come back,” Evans added. Oliphant went 1-2 with a run, an RBI, a walk, and the home run while Evans was 1-3 with a run. Wheatley earned the complete game win for Laurel, which is scheduled to be off Monday and Tuesday before returning to action on Wednesday and Thursday (8 p.m.). “She pitched well. She was hitting her spots with the corners,” said Kelsey Oliphant, the team’s catcher.
The District III Senior League softball team of Laurel took a break from practice last week and attended a crab feast hosted by Walt Hearn last Thursday. Luckily, I was invited to this event, and like the players, family members, and other community members, had a great time. A salute to the coaches- Manager Jeff Evans gives a lot of credit to his assistant coaches, Rodney Hearne and Robert Trout, who are each in their third year with him. “They’ve put in a lot of time and have worked hard over the past couple years,” Evans said. Strong core- Ever since he started coaching little league softball, Evans has had the same core of players: Alexis Oliphant, Kelsey Oliphant, Brooke Evans, and Jenna Cahall. He estimated that this group of players has gone 36-10 over the years (going into World Series play. Evans’ team lost to Cape Henlopen in 2005, but a win over Seaford led to big things for the Laurel team as Evans met Ronnie Wheatley, Stephanie’s father. Through that meeting he found out that Ronnie is a Laurel resident, and the rest as they say is history as Stephanie joined the Laurel team and has been playing Little League and high school ball with the girls ever since. All in the family- In a addition to triplets Alexis, Kelsey, and Taylor Oliphant, there are a number of players related to current or past players who competed with District III in the Senior League World Series. There are two pairs of cousins on the current team: Kelsey Willey and Jenna Cahall and Brooke and Courtney Evans. Christyana (Yanni) Davis is the younger sister of Yasmin Davis, who played on the team the previous two years. Also, Mariah Dickerson and the Oliphants have older sisters who played in the first World Series held at Roxana: Miranda Dickerson and Samantha Oli-
phant. DIAA sportsmanship championsThe Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) recently announced 11 schools as state champions in sportsmanship including Sussex Tech (third straight year) and Phillis Wheatley Middle School (Woodbridge School District), which received the honor for the first time and became the first middle school to be honored by DIAA for sportsmanship. Cape Henlopen High School was the only other Sussex County school among the 11 schools that were selected. Still no coaches in Laurel- The Laurel High School varsity field hockey, softball, and football coaches have yet to be named. The football position just recently became available, but the other positions became vacant when Margo Morris stepped down months ago. On Monday, the Laurel School Board held a special meeting during which it rejected Athletic Director Jerry Mears’ recommendations for the field hockey and softball positions. The board voted 3-1 against Jamie Reynolds (field hockey), while there was a lack of a second in the motion to hire Kevin Walmsley (softball). Fall sports practices start Saturday. Quick hits- Laurel Senior League pitcher/outfielder Cassidy Taylor made a sacrifice when she chose to play with the team, she was kicked off of her travel ball team for choosing to help the Laurel team earn its third straight World Series berth. Whitney Toadvine and Erin Johnson were added to the District III team’s roster last week, giving the team a full roster. With Sunday’s win over USA East, District III is now 3-2 against foes from the east in the six years of the tournament in Roxana. The players who are with the team for the third straight year are 3-0 while Laurel is 3-1 against the East in its five years of World Series play.

Adult Abuse Registry online
As of Monday, Aug. 3, Delawareans seeking to hire someone to help care for their elderly loved one and employers can go online and check the job applicant’s name against the Adult Abuse Registry. The listing of a person’s name on the registry is based on a civil finding of abuse, neglect, mistreatment, financial exploitation, or a combination of those findings. It is not a criminal finding. Individu-
als are placed on the Registry for a fixed period of time. When that time runs, the sanction is over and the name is removed. A listing of “Substantiated Pending Appeal” means that the person listed either has filed an appeal to challenge the listing, or still has time in which to do so. Otherwise the listing is “Substantiated,” meaning that the listing has been finalized after an appeal, or that no appeal was requested within the time permitted. Delaware’s aging population is growing faster than in most states. By 2030, the US population over 65 is expected to double while Delaware’s is expected to grow by almost 134 percent. To report abuse in the community or in a long term care facility, call the Elder Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 800-3920210 24 hours a day.

Patient builds a garden box as tribute to therapist In June 2008, Gordon Boslet was moving his lawn furniture as a storm approached when one of those freak accidents happened, the kind of accident that changes one’s life forever. A huge branch from one of his 80-foot ‘swamp maples’ in his Lewes backyard broke loose in the wind and fell on him, pinning him to the ground and irreparably damaging his rugged, 72-year-old body. It was months before he understood that Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company came to his rescue, cutting and removing the web of limbs of the old branch, and then transporting him to Beebe Medical Center’s Emergency Department. “Everyone was so helpful,” says Mr. Boslet’s wife. “And the members of the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company continued to help us by building a ramp for our home.” Paralyzed from the waist down, Mr. Boslet was in and out of a specialized medical center for five months. When his health had stabilized, he was sent to Beebe Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Services Department where he began both occupational therapy and physical therapy. “When I came here, I couldn’t move,” he said recently during a physical therapy session at Beebe Medical Center. “Now my goal is to pick up my body with my arms so I can transfer from my bed to my wheelchair more easily. I’m working at getting into the electric wheelchair.” Boslet, a retired business owner from New York, had taken up carpentry as a hobby several years before the accident. Today he is retooling his workbench to
fit his electric wheel chair, which can be raised and lowered. He’s making Adirondack chairs as gifts, something he did not think he would ever do again. “He’s been an inspiration,” says occupational therapist Alice Workman, OTR-L, who works at the Baylis Rehabilitation Center at the Beebe Health Campus in Rehoboth Beach. Mrs. Workman’s role is to help patients learn new ways to care for themselves after suffering a disabling illness or injury. She worked regularly with Mr. Boslet. When he started coming to the center, he noticed that she had organized the gardening project to help her patients, and that it brought joy into their days. “Gardening is an important activity in the lives of many people,” she explains. “And for the patients who have traditionally enjoyed gardening, we wanted to teach them a way that they could continue to do it.” Boslet noticed that the plants needed to be in a contained area. Despite his own disability, he was determined to build a garden box that could then be placed next to the window and hold all the plants in one special place. He built a garden box, and included some three-dimensional carved flowers, as well as a painted sign dedicated to Alice Workman, Alice’s Gardenland, for all that she had done for him and for the patients. Mrs. Boslet found a birdhouse to include, and painted the flowers. Beebe staff member Natalie Strayer and her husband Jackie later built and decorated a cream-colored base for the garden box. “Mr. Boslet became inspired and has inspired everyone around him,” says Camilla

to work with the physical therapist to strengthen his upper body. He is determined to do as much as he can, and is enjoying his time with his family, especially grandson Gordon Boslet III, better know as “Traì” and granddaughter Clarice F. Boslet.

MORNING STAR • AUGUST 13 - 19, 2009
Propofol must be taken only if an anesthesiologist is present By Dr. Anthony Policastro There are many medical things that pop up in the media. Some of them are familiar, others are not. One of the less familiar things to appear over the last few weeks had to do with a drug called Propofol. There was a question raised about it being possibly related to what happened with Michael Jackson. The name Propofol was probably new to many non-medical people. People are used to going through complicated procedures under sedation. The best example of this is screening colonoscopy. The sedation used for these procedures is known as conscious sedation. This means that the patient is awake enough to follow commands during the procedure. However, the drugs cause amnesia for what goes on during the procedure. For that reason, the patient does not remember any discomfort afterward. It is like it never happened. For years the drug that was used the most was something called Versed. This was very good at doing exactly what was needed. It allowed the patient to be cooperative and caused the patient to not remember anything about the procedure. Thus it is a very good drug for the procedure itself. However, after the procedure the patients usually had to recover for a period of time so they could be sent home. Even then they were still somewhat groggy. Propofol does the same kind of thing as Versed. However, it has a much shorter recovery period which allows physicians to move more patients through the system in the same period of time. They can do more procedures.
It would sound at first like Propofol is a good replacement for Versed. However, all drugs are different. Propofol has an important downside to it. With any drug that we use, there are two blood levels that we see of the drug. The first drug level is what is called the therapeutic level. This is the level that causes the action that we want to see. The second level is the toxic level. This is the level that causes significant side effects from the drug. Some drugs have a large difference between the therapeutic and toxic levels. Thus if you give a little too much of the drug it still will not get high enough to be toxic. Other drugs have only a small difference between the therapeutic and toxic levels. For these drugs even if you give a little too much, it can be a problem. Propofol is one of the drugs with a very limited difference between the therapeutic dose and the dose that is too high. If the levels get too high, they put the patient into a general anesthesia state. At that point, the patient needs to have assistance with breathing. For that reason, Propofol should only be used when there is an anesthesia person present. That person needs to be responsible for monitoring breathing. If the patient goes too deep because the level moves to the high side, the anesthesia person can take over breathing. That is the same thing that happens in the operating room. The bottom line is that if someone wants to give you Propofol for a procedure, make sure there is someone there to monitor your respirations and breathe for you if that becomes necessary.
If Michael Jackson took Propofol at home, it is unlikely that anyone was monitoring him to see if the level of anesthesia
got too deep. We are in a position to ensure that the proper precautions are in place if we ever receive Propofol for a procedure.

Guest Column Now is a great time to build your dream home in Sussex County By Ruth Briggs King
For months now, I’ve been making the argument that this is the perfect time to buy an existing home in Sussex County. Depressed prices, fantastic loan rates and government programs designed to stimulate the economy have created favorable conditions not seen in decades here at home and around the country. But what if, instead of purchasing an existing home in your favorite town or neighborhood, you want to buy a piece of property and build your dream home from the ground up? Well, it’s a perfect time to do that too. Just a few short years ago, as Sussex County became more and more popular with developers throughout the region, multiple new communities were designed and planned for hundreds or even thousands of homes. Today, many of those communities contain only a fraction of that amount. The market slowdown has forced homebuilders, developers, even contractors and subcontractors, to become more flexible when it comes to negotiating prices and rates. For buyers looking to test the real estate waters, this means a perfect opportunity for negotiating a favorable deal with a developer or homebuilder near you. In a buyer’s market like the one we are currently experiencing in southern Delaware, negotiating the purchase price on a newly constructed home can prove profitable for those willing to go through the process. But there are many more things to consider than just the final purchase price. For example, if your builder of choice is not willing to lower the asking price for a new home, consider negotiating for better amenities like a higher grade of carpet, marble countertops, upgraded appliances or even light fixtures. A simple request like a better grade of carpet is not usually going to be a deal breaker, especially during an economic

cycle where many builders and developers are struggling to sell homes. However, while negotiating a deal for a new home can often prove profitable, it is certainly not an easy thing to do. Before undertaking such a process, I highly recommend consulting an expert in the local real estate scene – that means bringing in a member of the Sussex County Association of Realtors. In conjunction with our national association, we have compiled the following tips for negotiating the purchase price of a new home: • Start with a fair price and a fair offer. Making an offer that’s far lower than the asking price is practically guaranteed to alienate the seller or builder. • Respect the other side’s priorities. Knowing what’s most important to the person on the other side of the negotiating table can help you avoid pushing too hard on hot or sensitive issues. For example, a seller who won’t budge on the sale price might be willing to pay more of the transaction costs or provide better amenities in order to get the deal done. • Be prepared to compromise. The buyer and the seller will not get everything they want. Both sides will win some and give some. Rather than approaching negotiations from a winner-take-all perspective, focus on your top priorities and don’t let your emotions overrule your better judgment. • Meet in the middle. If you can’t decide who will pay certain fees or what kinds of upgrades will be included in the sale, split the difference. It is a time-honored and often successful negotiation strategy. • Leave it aside. If you have a major sticking point that’s not material to the overall contract – things like furniture or fixtures – finish the main agreement, then resolve the other difficulties in a side agreement or amendment. This technique allows both sides to recognize and solidify basic areas of agreement, then move ahead toward a fair compromise on other terms and conditions. • Ask for advice. Successful realtors tend to be experienced negotiators. They’ve seen what works and what doesn’t in countless real estate transactions. Consult your realtor about negotiating strategies and creative alternatives. Right now is a fantastic time to get a great deal on a new home, especially if you’re willing to do your homework and put in a little extra effort. And, as always, Sussex County is a great place to buy that home.

Eliminating the Department of Finance will not help Delaware By Chip Flowers
With Delaware struggling through the most serious recession since the end of World War II, on July 5, Governor Markell made a startling announcement: proposing to eliminate our state Department of Finance. Surprisingly, the governor’s proposal, which calls for eliminating only one job (the secretary of finance) and shifting the department’s three divisions (Revenue, Accounting and the Lottery Office) elsewhere in state government (the governor hasn’t said where yet) has stirred little discussion. Perhaps that’s because the General Assembly, exhausted from dealing with $800 million in budget cuts, is now out of session and welcomes a break from financial discussions. Perhaps it’s because all of state government’s finance leaders — the secretary of finance, the directors of the Office of Management and Budget and the Delaware Economic Development Office (DEDO), the chair of the Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council (DEFAC) and even our current state treasurer — were appointed by Gov. Markell. Regardless, it’s important that voices outside the administration speak up and give the public a means to consider the long-term implications of this proposal — before the General Assembly decides whether to approve it. After all, it’s reasonable to question whether it’s prudent to eliminate the Department of Finance with the state in the eye of an economic storm. Though I admire the governor’s spirit in challenging the status quo, I’d like to offer three arguments against dismantling the Department of Finance. First, in times of economic crisis, the secretary of finance should serve as the governor’s primary financial advisor. As witnessed by the lead roles undertaken by our nation’s finance department (the Department of Treasury) in Washington, the leader of the finance department must serve as the key advisor to the governor on a variety of financial issues that impact the state. With a staff of professionals that closely monitor our state’s finances, this individual, along with the state treasurer, should be the key person in developing a strategic plan to weather the economic storm. By placing emphasis on eliminating the

finance department, this misdirected energy has crippled an important resource and depleted the political capital of its leader. While the current governor may elect not to use our finance department and its secretary (which is well within his right), it does not mean that future governors will downplay the significance of this important cabinet figure. Second, eliminating the department will not result in significant cost savings or efficiencies. Isn’t the current proposal just a fancy way of reducing the size of the governor’s cabinet and number of state departments by one at the expense of a trusted economic advisor? If the employees of the Department of Finance’s three divisions are reassigned to other agencies, what will be accomplished? For now, it appears that many state employees are being relocated — on the organizational chart at least — to generate a savings of one, maybe two, salaries and claim that an entire department has been eliminated from state government. Saving the salary of the finance secretary does not outweigh the benefit of having a trusted advisor at the decisionmaking table. In an economic crisis that impacts all Delawareans, we must not sacrifice leadership in the name of minimal cost savings or efficiency. Finally, eliminating the department would remove one of the essential checks
and balances among the financial offices within our state government. Like weights on a scale, our finance secretary, agency directors, advisory councils and state treasurer provide important checks and balances as each offers independent analysis of the state’s economic status to the governor, the General Assembly and the people. Removing a single weight from the scale and changing the reporting structure will fundamentally change the delicate balance that supports the financial structure of our government. Without serious discussion and planning, eliminating a department at the whim of any given governor would place our state government in a constant state of flux and could encourage talented staff to seek more stable employment. In any debate, we must be open to new ideas and opportunities, including revamping the Department of Finance to meet fresh challenges. This department, and its talented workers, should be instrumental to our economic recovery. They deserve to remain where they now stand within our state government – as an important pillar in the foundation of our state’s financial system.
