Maintaining the progressive climate in Laurel’s potential for growth, more property owners have requested to be considered for annexation and hookup to the municipal water and sewer. During a recent meeting of the Laurel Town Council, Mayor John Shwed shared an annexation request from Craig and Juanita Littleton, of W.C. Littleton and Son Inc., regarding a 3.5-acre parcel on 10th Street, across from the Laurel Fire Station. In a letter to the town, the Littletons explained that they are requesting to have the south portion of the property annexed to allow for access to municipal services to accommodate a planned townhouse project. “W.C. Littleton & Son Inc. is currently under contract with James W.

Burgess III, of Elite Homes and Mr. Burgess is intending to construct townhouses on the property and sell primarily to first time home buyers,” the letter stated. “The townhouses will be dressed up to blend in with the local market.” The Littletons said Burgess will be responsible for all costs and documentation for the townhouse process and they will “assist where necessary and advise where needed.” The town also received confirmation from two other property owners who are interested in joining a collaborative effort to gain town water and sewer and eventually annex into the town’s corporate limits. In December, the owners of a mobile home park near US 13 approached the council about annexation. Southern Delaware Homes, the owner of Shady Acres Mobile Home

Park located behind the Oasis Travel Center, Laurel, plans to develop a 216unit townhouse complex on the mobile home park site. During the Monday, Dec. 19, meeting, Southern Delaware Homes vice president Brian McKinley was joined by his firm’s consultant, Joe Conaway, of Consultant’s Unlimited, to discuss the plans for the new townhouse project. Currently, the Shady Acres Mobile Home property is not contiguous with the borders of Laurel’s town limits, which makes it ineligible for annexation into the town. In an effort to gain access to the town’s public water and waste water treatment, Southern Delaware Homes is making an offer to neighboring commercial properties along US 13. Continued on page 4

Laurel chamber to hold meeting Sept. 14, to look at health plan The Laurel Chamber of Commerce’s first important seminar is on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. at the chamber office. Chamber business members are being offered health insurance. On July 20, the chamber driven health care plan by Creenaght was approved by the Delaware State Insurance Commission. The Creenaght health is underwritten by Companion Life Ins. Co., an A+ rated carrier. Phase I will be offered to Delaware licensed businesses with 50 or fewer employees and self-funded employers who

belong to any chamber of commerce in Delaware. The guest speaker will be Brian Hefferan from Creenaght, who was instrumental in getting this insurance plan off the ground. Members are urged to attend this meeting and bring questions. The meeting is open to the public, but only chamber members can participate in the insurance plan. Reservations for the meeting are due by Sept. 11. Call the chamber office at 8759319 or Bev at 875-8303. Light refreshments will be served.

90 percent of insurance claims are incurred by approximately 30 percent of members. According to the Pharmaceutical Patient Compliance and Disease Management group quoted in the literature given out at Tuesday’s meeting, over 60 percent of patients “are not fully compliant with prescribed medical therapies for existing health risks and/or conditions.” Most often, the literature says, claims are incurred by members who do not choose to follow doctor’s recommendations or health management plans. Both the health corridor plan and the core benefit plan are renewable each year, and members can switch from one plan to the other if they choose to. However, bet-

ter benefits are provided to those members who work responsibly to manage their own health. Almost all hospitals and more than 90 percent of doctors in Delaware will be participating in this new plan. The start date for Creenaght’s plan is October 1, 2006. Phase I of Creenaght’s plan will be offered to businesses licensed in Delaware with 50 or fewer employees and self-funded employers who belong to the Chamber of Commerce.

Mayor: Town doing better dealing with run-down property GREENHOUSES & GIFT SHOP By Tony E. Windsor

A Laurel resident recently expressed discontent at what she feels is an unreasonable number of derelict properties in the town. During a recent meeting of the Laurel Town Council, Mary Ann Rivas of Pine Street asked the council how long derelict properties were allowed to remain in a state of disrepair before the town did something about it. “There are houses in the 8th Street and 4th Street area that are fires waiting to happen,” she said. “There are kids in those areas and the buildings are abandoned. How long before you do something about it?” Town code official Paul Frick told Rivas that he is working with the owners of the properties that she alluded to in her comments. “There are two buildings on 4th Street where the owner is getting bids and will be moving to have the structures torn down,” he said. “An abandoned building on 8th Street is going to sheriff’s sale and the town holds the deed and title and it is one of several properties that the town is offering for sale as surplus properties. The buildings will either be torn down, or will be sold as is. There is really nothing more I can do.” The properties referred to by Frick as “surplus properties” include properties on West 6th Street (between 421 and 425 W. 6th Street and 411 and 415 W. 6th Street), a property on West 7th Street (between 522 and 526 W. 7th Street) and a con-

demned property that once served as a school house located at 105 East 8th Street. The two properties on West 6th Street are being researched by George, Miles & Buhr, the town’s engineering firm, as potential sites for water line expansion over Broad Creek. Frick told Rivas that there are also properties on Front Street that are going through a change in ownership and the new owners are moving to have the buildings torn down. Rivas said she feels that too often properties in Laurel are allowed to become run down and left in a state of disrepair that is dangerous to children and unsightly in the community. “We have people in this town getting away with being slum lords with bad properties,” she said. “There are houses in such bad shape that the only thing that keeps them from falling down is the termites holding hands. I have to keep my property up and I am a widow. If I can do it, so can they.” Mayor John Schwed said that he feels the town is doing much better in dealing with derelict properties. He pointed out that under Frick’s leadership the Code Enforcement Department is working to develop a list of the 50 worst properties in town. This list will be shared with the council, the properties, both commercial and residential, will be placed in order of priority and action will be taken to address the problems.

Path is set for annexation of Horsey property By Tony E. Windsor The Laurel Annexation and Growth Committee, chaired by Councilman Chris Calio, has reviewed several recent annexation requests and is recommending that the town move forward in the annexation process. During a recent meeting of the Laurel Town Council, Calio presented the requests to the full council. The requests include properties located in the area of the intersection of U.S. 13 and U.S. 9. Davis, Bowen & Friedel Inc., Salisbury,

is requesting annexation of four of the parcels on behalf of Royal Farms convenience store. Three of these properties are located in the area of the existing Royal Farms store on the corner of US 13 and Del. 9. The forth is a parcel across the street from the Royal Farms store on the adjacent corner of US 13 and 9, next to the auction block property. A fifth parcel of land on U.S. 13, next to the Tastee Freeze restaurant, has been slated for a real estate office. Annexation of this property will enable the Royal Farms and Tastee Freeze properties to become contiguous to the town’s corporate

limits in preparation for annexation. The same is true for two other properties across U.S. 13 on the east side, which will become contiguous if the real estate office property is annexed. One of the requests comes from Bill Brown, owner of Bargain Bill’s Flea Market at the corner of US 13 and Delaware 9. The other is for an 18-acre parcel owned by Doug Whaley and located at U.S. 13 and U.S. 9, near the Exxon Convenience Store. The Car Store located on the east side of US 13 seeks annexation. If that happens, it will enable a large parcel of property owned by David G. Horsey & Sons to

be eligible for annexation, as that property would be contiguous to property in town. That property is being looked at for a Discovery Group project, developed in conjunction with the David G. Horsey Family Youth Foundation and featuring a sports complex and retail operation on 480 acres of land near US 13 north of Laurel. Laurel Mayor John Shwed said town engineers at George, Miles & Buhr will be working on developing the path that municipal utility lines will take to reach out to US 13, including the eastern side of the highway.

Developer willing to pay for others to join town Continued from page 1

According to Conaway, Southern Delaware Homes is willing to pay for the costs associated with bringing Laurel’s water and sewer lines out to its property on the northbound side of US 13. In the interest of becoming contiguous with the town, Southern Delaware Homes is offering to pay costs associated with hooking up to the town’s system for those businesses which could be serviced by a line running out to Shady Acres Mobile Home Park. Southern Delaware Homes hopes that the businesses will annex into the town and help the Shady Acres property become contiguous to the town’s boundaries. During a recent council meeting, letters were shared from property owners along US 13 near the Shady Acres Mobile Home complex who are expressing interest in

taking Southern Delaware Homes up on its offer to bear the costs for having the properties access the town’s water and sewer service. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital said it will be interested in joining the project and seek future annexation for its property, the Laurel Medical Center, on US 13. Also sending a letter of request was Frank Calio, owner of Calio Plaza, also on US 13. Calio said he would maintain an interest in annexation as long as all costs for the extension of municipal utilities would be handled by Southern Delaware Homes and he would not be expected to bear any out of pocket expenses. This is in line with the concept that McKinley and Conaway shared with the council back in December. “This property (Shady Acres) could be improved and be a benefit to the town of

Laurel,” Conaway said at the December meeting. “We have sent letters to property owners that are contiguous to the town asking that they consider annexing into the town and we will pay the costs to run the lines and do the individual laterals for hook ups. All we would ask them to do is pay their normal operational fees to the town.” Conaway also said that Southern Delaware Homes has a water system with two wells on the property that it will be willing to make available to the town that may be helpful as it plans growth on the eastern side of US 13. McKinley said that the townhouse project encompasses 38 acres of property and is felt to be much better use of the land than the existing mobile home park.

“Based on the development that is taking place in Laurel we feel an upscale townhouse project is a much better use of this land,” he said. “We also want the town to know that we plan to stay in this project. We are not getting approval to do the project and then run away and leave it.” The townhouses planned for the project are expected to be about $1,800 squarefeet in area space and cost in the neighborhood of $250,000. They are to be built with six units to each building and homes will be equipped with garages as well as additional on-street parking. The requests from Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and Calio have been referred to the town’s Annexation and Growth Committee for review.

Community Awareness Day is set for Sept. 23 in Laurel River Park At last week’s Laurel Town Council meeting, Councilwoman Robin Fisher announced plans for the second annual Community Awareness Day, to be held in the Laurel River Park on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Fisher said regional service providers, state agencies and other community organizations will be at the event to provide information to residents.

World of Furniture Galleries will be awarded at the close of the event. Rain date is Saturday, Oct. 7. A planning committee has been developed and will be meeting on Sept. 6 at Laurel Town Hall beginning at 5:30 p.m. to discuss plans for the event. Anyone interested in participating in the planning of Community Awareness Day is welcome to attend. For more information contact Jamie Smith at Laurel Town Hall. The phone number is 875-2277.

Changes in Delaware’s animal population control program A new Delaware law signed on June 29, 2006 establishes a pre-adoption spay/neuter program for cats and dogs and a spay/neuter fund. It is now mandatory for all cats and/or dogs of reproductive age to be spayed or neutered and inoculated for rabies prior to adoption. Failure to comply with the provisions of the law may result in fines. Persons who demonstrate economic hardship may apply for funding assistance from the proceeds of the Spay/Neuter Fund to comply. Also, organizations that are a 501(c) (3) animal welfare, animal rescue and/or animal humane organization registered in the State of Delaware may apply for funding assistance. The program is being administered by the Delaware Department of Agriculture. Initial spay-neuter funding assistance will come from a FY 2007 appropriation. Sub-

sequent funding will be derived from a $3 surcharge that will be added to each rabies shot administered in Delaware on or after Sept 1, 2006. The purpose of the spay/neuter program is to assist low-income residents and low-income communities. The Animal Population Control Program’s goals include the reduction of: • population growth among stray and unwanted cats and dogs; and • stray and unwanted cats and dogs entering animal shelters; and • cat and dog euthanasia rates; and • animal-inflicted injuries to humans (e.g. bites); and • threats to public health and safety (e.g. from rabies and vehicular accidents). If you need assistance in finding a licensed veterinarian, contact the Veterinary Medical Association, 302-674-8581.

Proposed noise ordinance to get another public hearing By Mike McClure The Delmar Joint Council held its monthly meeting before a packed house on Monday. At issue were three proposed ordinances that came up for public hearing during the meeting, most notably a noise ordinance and an abandoned vehicle ordinance. The issue that drew the most public comment was the proposed noise ordinance, which was introduced at last month’s meeting and came before the council in the second public hearing of the night. The proposed noise ordinance had no hours written for the time of the ordinance. However, the council had discussed during the July meeting the possibility of having it take effect during the hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Town attorney Robert Benson suggested setting the distance from the source of noise at 50 feet rather than 10 feet, the original distance set in the ordinance. Benson said similar noise ordinances are in effect in Salisbury and Fruitland. Some towns use noise meters, which require training and the purchasing of equipment, with other towns setting the distance from the source of noise at 50 feet. Salisbury has a distance of 50 feet with the ordinance taking effect between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. Some residents did not realize that the proposed noise ordinance was for overnight rather than 24 hours a day. One resident asked the council how she’s supposed to call her 10-year-old kid for dinner or mow her grass if the noise ordinance is passed. “We’re not saying 24 hours a day you can’t go and call your kid down the street,” Councilwoman Diane Buckley said. Buckley added that the town would need to receive a complaint from a neighbor before any action would be taken under the noise ordinance, which carries a $10 to $500 fine and 30 days in jail. Buckley said constant outdoor screaming (at night) is what is being targeted by the ordinance. Both Buckley and Commissioner Carrie Williams told the crowd the council was looking for the town’s input during the public hearing. Resident Wayne Bastian pointed out that TV noise is not included in the ordinance, while noise from a phonograph is. He also said setting the distance at 10 feet is ridiculous, the hours need to be set, and the term “reasonable person” in the ordinance may leave the town open to law suits. Bastian, a former Delmar School District superintendent, said that if permit applications are granted residents within a 1,000

foot radius of the facility should be consulted prior to approval. One resident suggested that the ordinance could put people out of business if truckers aren’t allowed to drop their loads. Delmar Deputy Fire Chief Joe Morris, Jr. said the fire department, with its siren and sound amplifying equipment, is not exempt under the proposed ordinance (neither is the police department). Another resident pointed out that roofers start work at 6 a.m. because of the heat and sanitation workers make pickups before 7 a.m. Residents also voiced concerns over who will enforce the ordinance and the punishment for the crime. “We’re not out to lock you up. We’re citizens here too,” said Buckley. “What we’re talking about is a quality of life ordinance. Studies show these kind of ordinances reduce crime and enhance property values,” said former Commissioner Larry Points. Points suggested that the enforcement be done by police officers who could roll their windows down and go to the source of the noise during the hours of the noise ordinance rather than have a “noise person” as called for in the proposed ordinance. “I’m more confused about the whole thing than I was when I came in,” resident Jeff Willis said, pointing to what he called “gray areas” in the ordinance. Commission members said the proposed ordinance came about as a way to give the town a law that can be enforced when the police department gets complaints. The council voted to table the issue and bring it back for another public hearing. The first public hearing of the night dealt with proposed ordinances (in Maryland and Delaware) concerning abandoned, inoperable vehicles on residents’ properties. Benson told the joint council that if the proposed ordinance is passed, the existing ordinance would be repealed. According to Benson, the proposed ordinance is almost the same as the one in effect. The main change is the elimination of a clause allowing the maintenance of vehicles in the rear portion of a property. Under the ordinance, residents have 30 days to remove an inoperable vehicle from their properties. Points said the provision in the current ordinance which allows residents to apply for a six month extension has been the biggest problem. He suggested removing that provision from the ordinance as well as limiting the number of inoperable cars allowed on a property at one time to


one or two. Benson said the ordinance allows no inoperable vehicles past 30 days and suggested reducing the 30-day time period rather than setting a limit on the number of abandoned vehicles. Resident James Davis said the town’s zoning should cover situations where multiple abandoned vehicles are present if there is a business operating in a residential area. Williams suggested leaving the sixthmonth extension out of the proposed ordinance but both the Delmar Commission (Md.) and the Delmar Council (Del.) voted to table the issue to allow members time to review the proposed changes brought up at the meeting. A second public hearing will be held on the issue (also at a future joint council meeting). Both bodies voted unanimously in favor of the the third ordinance discussed during a public hearing, an ordinance establishing definition and requirements for a flood plain. Benson pointed out that one small area in town (east of Stage Road) is in a flood plain, which prohibits building. Delmar (Md.) Mayor Doug Niblett stated that some area residents are unable to apply for flood insurance without the passage of the ordinance. Benson pointed out that the federal government defines what a flood plain is. In other business, Councilman Michael Houlihan reported on the Planning and Zoning meeting which was held last Thursday night.

tions to the conflict with Holly Lake residents concerning traffic. The proposals included adding an entrance to the dealership farther away from Holly Lakes, posting signs prohibiting parking and test driving near the development, and the addition of six concrete display pads on the western side of the road. The Delmar Commission (Md.) voted 50 to accept the proposed signs and new entrance and deny the concrete pads because of safety concerns. The commission also voted 4-0 in favor of granting final approval for the Foskey Lane Business Park, pending a traffic study. The Delmar Council (Del.) voted 4-1 in favor of granting final approval to the Stillwater development. Preliminary approval was granted last September. The development consists of 130 units with a minimum lot size of 9,000 square feet. The new owners told the the Planning and Zoning Commission that houses would start at $200,000. Under the agreement, overnight street parking would not be allowed. Council members questioned the width of the roads, however Morris told them the streets would be wide enough if there is no parking allowed on the streets. In new business, the Commission (Md.) approved the first reading of an annexation request by Delmar Diner. A public hearing will be held at the September joint council meeting but no vote will be taken if the county has not granted approval. The property already receives town sewer and is looking to connect to its water system.

Consulting firm to help write county’s land-use plan Sussex County Council has chosen a Pennsylvania consulting firm to shepherd the county’s land-use plan through its next state-mandated update, which must be completed in a little more than a year. The council, on Tuesday, Aug. 22, selected Urban Research and Development Corp. of Bethlehem, Pa., to coordinate the review and update of the county’s land-use plan. That plan defines, among other things, growth zones, land-use policies and how development should proceed in the county during the next five years. Delaware law mandates that all counties and municipalities have a comprehensive plan in place to guide land use and future development. Counties and municipalities must review their plans every five years, and submit the plans to the state for approval. Sussex County adopted its current

land use plan in December 2002; the state of Delaware approved it in January 2003. That plan expires in late 2007. Council members praised Urban Research, which has performed similar work in numerous Maryland and Pennsylvania counties, adding that the firm’s experience and philosophy will benefit Sussex County and its residents in the form of a complete and professional blueprint for land use. “I believe this firm best represents the interests of Sussex County,” said Councilman Vance C. Phillips, who made the motion to select Urban Research and Development. Urban Research and Development was one of six consulting firms that submitted proposals to aid the county in its land-use plan update. A selection committee of various county officials, led by administrative assistant Hal Godwin, in-

terviewed four of those candidates, and of public meetings this fall throughout then ranked the candidates based on their Sussex County to receive public input on qualifications. From that list, two firms the plan, before a draft plan is written in made presentations to county council on early 2007.

Judith Maness of Rehoboth called into the Delaware Solid Waste Authority’s Citizens Response Line to sign up for the statewide program, which expanded into Sussex County on July 1. On the afternoon of Aug. 24, DSWA Recycling coordinator Jason Nicholson delivered Maness her curbside materials along with a gift basket from DSWA to show their appreciation. Rich Von Stetten, senior manager of recycling said, “DSWA was elated to have the 10,000th customer in place and is hoping to see that number double in the not too distant future.”

DSWA’s curbside recycling program, which began in 2003 and is now available to all Delaware residents, is a voluntary program, which DSWA provides at a nominal fee. Each customer is provided with a bin for glass containers, and different colored bags to collect newspaper, junk mail, narrow neck plastic bottles and cans. The program also allows for customers to recycle their flattened corrugated cardboard. In addition for an extra fee DSWA will also provide pick up of 4 bags of yard waste per week per customer.

Then in 1997, Barr suffered a heart attack and underwent open-heart, bypass surgery. He plans to be back in competition in the World Natural Powerlifting Federation meets next year where he hopes to press 400 pounds. Barr said that a friend once told him that he should always remember that his strength is a gift from God. “He said, ‘Randy, God has made you strong,’” Barr

said. “Well, if God’s given me a gift, then I should use it, even if it is something as simple as lifting weights.” Barr’s new ministry in Mexico is something his former Fountain of Life Church is supporting as one of its mission pledges.

Police Journal Driver charged in jogger’s death The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) has arrested a Seaford man in connection with a fatal pedestrian crash that occurred August 13, on State Route 20. Bradley A. Cordrey, 25, of Seaford, turned himself in to investigators late Thursday, Aug. 24, and was charged with operation of a motor vehicle causing the death of another person. Cordrey was released on his own recognizance pending a trial in Superior Court. Cordrey had been indicted on those charges on Monday, Aug. 21, by a Sussex County Grand Jury. Sarah Dykstra, 42, of Seaford died at 8:12 am. on Monday, Aug. 14, at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury from injuries she suffered in the accident on August 13. According to Cpl. Andrea Boone, Delaware State Police public information officer, Dykstra was hit by a car as she was jogging in the area of Cedar Avenue and Rt. 20 in Seaford. Boone said that at approximately 1:41 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 13, state troopers responded to the area of Rt. 20 near Cedar Lane for reports of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Investigators report that a 2004 Nissan Exterra, operated by Bradley Cordrey, 25, of Seaford was traveling westbound on Rt. 20 approaching Cedar Lane. The pedestrian, identified as Dykstra, was jogging along the grassy edge of southbound Cedar Lane. Dykstra turned right onto westbound Rt. 20. For unknown reasons, Cordrey’s vehicle left the roadway, traveled across the shoulder and struck Dykstra, according to Boone. She was thrown approximately 90 feet. Dykstra was transported to Nanticoke Hospital by ambulance where she was initially treated for her injuries. She was later flown by helicopter to the Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Suspect sought in two robberies Delaware State Police are investigating two robberies that occurred Monday, Aug. 28, in the Bridgeville area. The first robbery occurred at approximately 11:31 a.m. on Blanchard Road (Sussex County Road 34) northwest of Bridgeville. A 57-year-old Bridgeville woman was driving on Blanchard Road when she had to stop for a white vehicle blocking the roadway. A black male suspect, armed with a handgun, then exited this vehicle and approached the victim. The suspect pointed the handgun at the victim and demanded money. The victim did not turn over her money, but instead drove off around the suspect and his vehicle leaving the area. The second incident occurred at approximately 11:39 a.m. on Progress School Road (Sussex County Road 562) west of Bridgeville. The apparent same black male suspect forced his way into the home of a Bridgeville couple. The suspect confronted the couple, who are both 72-yearsold, and pushed them into the living room.

Once in the living room, the suspect fired one round from his handgun into the ceiling, pushed the male victim onto the floor, and pushed the female victim into a chair. When the male victim was pushed to the floor, the back of his head struck a table and was lacerated. The suspect then stole money from both victims and fled the home. The suspect was described as being in his 20s, was approximately 5’10” to 6’02” tall, and weighed around 180 pounds. The suspect was wearing a white painter’s style cap, a white shirt, and blue jeans. The suspect was operating a white vehicle, possibly a four door, with a partial Maryland registration 4WD. Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Detective Larry Corrigan at (302) 856-5850 Ext. 219 or Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333. The 72-year-old male victim was treated at Nanticoke Hospital for a laceration to his head.

Agents investigating weekend death The Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Section is investigating the death of a Millville resident on Sunday, Aug. 27, on Indian River Bay. According to Enforcement officials, Richard A. Haas, 65, of Bird Haven Road, Millville, was fishing in a 19-foot SeaPro center console boat Sunday afternoon when his vessel grounded on a sandbar. Witnesses reported that he was planning to wait for high tide to free the boat. The victim’s wife notified Coast Guard officials that he was still aground at approximately 9 p.m. At approximately 11 p.m., the Coast Guard began a search for the vessel. The Millville Volunteer Fire Company was called to assist with the search. At 7:40 a.m. Monday morning, Mr. Haas was found floating outside his boat in Indian River Inlet. He was wearing a life jacket. The boat was located by the Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Section at 10:10 a.m., still aground in Indian River Bay. The State Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating the cause of death.

Laurel fire investigated The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office investigated a building fire that occurred on Tuesday, Aug. 22, at 6:05 p.m. in the Carvel Gardens Apartments on the 1900 block of Daniel Street in Laurel. The Laurel, Blades and seaford Fire Departments responded to the scene. Upon arrival they encountered smoke coming from the apartment. State Fire Marshal Investigators have determined that the fire originated in the kitchen and was caused by unattended cooking. Damages have been estimated at $3,000.

Crash claims Delmar man The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred Tuesday, Aug. 22, at approximately 5 p.m., on Sussex County Road 431 south of State Rt. 20. A 1996 BMW operated by Kenneth Daniel Hall Jr., 19, of Delmar, was travel-

ing south on CR 431 approaching a sharp curve to the left. As the BMW entered the curb, Mr. Hall lost control of it and the BMW traveled off the west edge of the roadway. The BMW then came back onto the roadway before exiting the east edge and traveling into a cornfield. The BMW then overturned several times, during which time Mr. Hall was ejected. Mr. Hall, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at 6:21 p.m. The crash remains under investigation.

Both defendants were taken out of the vehicle at which time defendant 2 began to resist and had to be physically restrained. Both defendants were arrested and transported to Seaford Police Department.

From sea to shining sea, people are fun to watch On our train trip to the West Coast and back, my daughter and I saw truly breathtaking scenery. Lovely green farms, woods and wetlands in Wisconsin, rolling plains in North Dakota and strange, Dr. Seussian hills in Montana. The Rocky Mountains, which even to someone used to the gasoline engine looked like something we would not be able to surmount, the amazing Columbia River Gorge and of course Mt. Hood, which towers over Portland like a watchful parent. We enjoyed surprisingly good food in the train’s dining car, got to take showers in our sleeping car and were served complimentary cookies at bedtime. All wonderful, unforgettable experiences. Not to mention the week we spent with our son and his girlfriend in Portland, where we, and my husband, who flew across the country to join us, indulged in fine food and drink, museums, shopping, movies and just being together. But all of that does not tell the full story of our two-week vacation. There was something else, something that will keep us laughing for years to come: the people we were able to observe during our journey. Our log of interesting characters starts in Washington, D.C., even before we boarded the train. A woman, sitting near us in the waiting room, caught our eye when she suddenly awoke and stretched out to smack the man sitting several seats away from her. “Hey, what time does this train leave?” she asked. When she did not like his answer, she stopped several passersby, to ask them the same question. Finally, she jumped from her seat and ran off in the direction of another waiting room. She did not return and when we boarded the train, her lone piece of luggage was sitting where she had left it. On the train, sitting just across the aisle in our coach seat to Chicago, was a man with the most interesting hairdo I had ever seen. It was a comb-over of magnificent proportions, starting behind his ear, near the nape of his neck, traveling up to his crown and wrapping around his head. He also had long hair, reaching below his shoulders, all stiffly set in place. I kept waiting for the bumps and rocks of the train to dislodge the whole arrangement, but it held firm, even while he slept. When we dined that night, our table partners were a doctoral student studying

LYNN PARKS viruses at the University of Pennsylvania and an actuary from Washington, D.C., who was a self-proclaimed expert in alternative healings. That combination made for interesting conversation. We first noticed The Professor when he ran into a wall in the waiting room in the Chicago station. Nattily dressed in a pin stripe suit and beads, he was examining his environs when he misjudged the nearness of the wall and slammed into it, reeling back into the room but keeping his footing. We saw him several times after that, as his berth was just a few rooms down from ours in the sleeping car, and dubbed him The Professor because he looked so much like a teacher of English or maybe anthropology. We actually met the Mysterious Couple, who, it turned out, lied to us about their destination and, I am convinced, about their relationship. They claimed to be father and daughter — really? Then there was the Lady with the White Pocketbook, who complained loudly and often. The toilet paper holder did not roll as it should, her bed was not made up just right, she had to walk through the coach car to get to the dining car. We closed our door when we heard her talking. On our way home, the train from Chicago to Washington experienced a 10-hour delay when tornadoes knocked trees onto the tracks just outside Chicago. We were back in coach for that leg of the journey and in the 27 hours it took us to make a 17hour journey, we heard many interesting comments and conversations. But the best, and perhaps the single comment that we will laugh about for years to come, came from the woman sitting in front of us, who was headed to Baltimore to visit her daughter and grandchildren. While our train sat on the tracks, waiting for the trees to be cleared, she rambled on about the inefficiency of trains in general and that one in particular. With salty language, she cursed Amtrak and its engineers and finally concluded with one grand declaration: “I’m going to send my money back!” And, in case we didn’t catch it: “Yes indeed, I’m going to send my money back!” I wouldn’t send my money back for anything. This train trip was worth every cent.

Education Students from Turkey are visiting Del Tech campus Eight students and two faculty members from Turkish colleges are visiting Delaware Tech from Tuesday, Aug. 29, through Thursday, Sept. 7, as part of a three-week tour of U.S. community colleges. (Students will also visit Howard Community College in Columbia, Md., and Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pa.) Visiting students and faculty members will be studying American culture and society and interacting with American students as part of their tours. For more than three years, Delaware Tech has been participating in faculty and administrative exchanges with Turkey as part of the college’s International Education initiative. Last year, the first group of Delaware Tech students traveled to Turkey earning college credit for Honors Sociology as part of a study abroad program. The program was repeated in June 2006. In return, the college welcomes this assembly of Turkish students in an exchange — the first of its kind for Delaware Tech. Seven men and three women will be staying with Delaware Tech faculty, staff and students while touring all three campuses and visiting local attractions such as Historic

New Castle and the Delaware beaches. Earlier this year, college president, Dr. Orlando J. George Jr., was invited by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings to the U.S. University Presidents Summit on International Education in recognition of the college’s International Education initiatives. “We realize that the need to forge a deeper understanding among countries and societies has never been greater. Students can be valuable ambassadors as they explore and learn in the spirit of friendship,” said George. “This is particularly true of the College’s Turkish exchange.” According to Kim Gregor, collegewide coordinator for International Education, “The relationships we are forging with Turkey through these faculty and student exchanges, are the first step in fostering understanding between the U.S. and Muslim countries. We hope that we can begin to build a bridge of understanding between our two cultures.” For more information on the International Education Office and its initiatives, go to

Not a day goes by that we’re not missing you, It’s so hard to believe that we’re approaching year number two. Taken from us so young Only God knows why, The pain was so great all we could do was cry.

So Goodbye for now Our cherished one, we’ll meet again someday when our time here is done. Deeply Loved and Sadly Missed, Mom and Dad Frankie, Tracy, Blake & Families

Inspiration God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds. His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself made purification for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have. For to which of the angels did he say at any time, “You are my Son. Today have I become your father?” and again, “I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?” Again, when he brings in the firstborn into the world he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him.” Of the angels he says, “Who makes his angels winds, and his servants a flame of fire.” But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your Kingdom. You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.” Hebrews 1: 1-9

I mean, looking back, I guess I was being “disciplined,” but when it was happening there was no doubt in my mind that Dad was beating me! But, I will I say once again, as I always do, I was not abused; I was just deserving. One thing is for sure, there was never a question in my mind who was in charge in my house. That never changed up through the day Dad died. I guess I should change the subject before some social psychologist gets the impression that my father was an abuser. But, I’ll tell you the truth, if anyone had come to my father and told him he could not beat us, I’m afraid they would have gotten beaten too. Daddy didn’t play. I guess looking back on being a youngster there are things I miss. I miss not having to pay bills, buy groceries, buy clothes,

do dishes, vacuum the house or having to have my heart checked periodically to make sure it’s still beating. I mean, where else can you have a woman cook your meals, wash your clothes and then still be willing to pick your head with a lice comb before you go to bed each night? Childhood is a time in life when you can run around the yard with nothing on but an old pair of shorts (that used to be a pair of slacks before you wore a hole in the knees) and sweat beads around your neck the size of a Christmas wreath, and not he arrested for vagrancy. I guess when I really think about it, growing up as a child was pretty good after all. All except for the time that I got my head stuck in a sewer drain grate. But, that’s a story for another time.

In crazy days at the end of summer, easy meals are best

Red Hat Society members can keep in touch via Web

These should be those “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” that the old happy tune sings about. But as the season comes to its all too untimely end, the only lyric that applies these days is the “crazy” part. It’s impossible not to notice the highways clogged with traffic – perhaps from those driving to late summer vacations or going back to college – or the stores buzzing with shoppers who look anything but relaxed. Maybe these are signs of the times but I wish it weren’t so. Gourmet magazine takes a stab at making dinnertime a little less hectic with a selection of really tasty dishes that require no cooking. Two favorites are below. It’s a tiny umbrella for what seems like a heavy downpour but every little bit helps!

The Delaware Red Hat Society members Web site is growing fast. In less than five months the site is host to 62 members and 201 postings by those members, said B. J. Young, Lewes, who is in charge of the Web site. Any official Red Hat member can join by contacting Young at and completing a registration form. “I check each member to be sure that they are an official member of the Red Hat Society which is the reason for the registration form,” Young said. “I also moderate the Web ste for correct information postings.” The site is primarily for Delaware Red Hat chapter members to share information. Young has created this site to be used as a open forum of communication throughout Delaware and the surrounding states. It is free to join and free for postings. By joining, a Red Hatter will be able to access the latest and most current Red Hat chapter events in Delaware and in surrounding states of New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Young invites all Red Hat Women to

Chicken And Watercress Salad With Hoisin Vinaigrette Serves 8 1 3-inch-long piece fresh ginger (about 1 and1/2 ounces), peeled, thinly sliced 2 green onions, coarsely chopped 1/2 cup hoisin sauce 1/4 cup vinegar 1/4 cup peanut oil 2 tablespoons water 1 tablespoon oriental sesame oil 2 bunches fresh watercress 2 purchased roasted chicken, cooled, shredded (about 8 cups) 3 yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced Finely chop ginger and 2/3 of onions in processor. Add next five ingredients; blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange watercress on large platter. Mix chicken and 2/3 of bell pepper slices in bowl. Arrange chicken atop watercress. Pour dressing over. Top with remaining green onions and bell pepper slices; serve. Bon Appétit, Entertaining Made Easy Pan Bagnat Serves 4. The flavors and juices of this Provencal-style tuna sandwich seep into the bread while it is being pressed. 1 1-pound loaf unsliced French bread, about 14-inches long 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/3 cup basil leaves, plus sprigs for garnish 2 6-ounce cans tuna packed in olive oil,

The Practical Gourmet undrained 2 plum tomatoes, diced 2/3 cup coarsely chopped pitted assorted brine-cured olives 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Maui) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice Slice bread in half lengthwise. Using hands, remove interior of loaf, leaving 3/4 –inch shell. Brush interior of both halves with olive oil and line with basil leaves in single layer. Combine undrained tuna, tomatoes, olives, onion, and lemon juice in medium bowl to blend. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon salad evenly into bottom bread shell. Cover with top half and wrap tightly with plastic. Place in shallow baking pan; top with another baking pan and weight with heavy cans. Let stand 20 minutes. Unwrap pan bagnat and cut into 11/2–inch slices. Place on platter, garnish with basil sprigs, and serve. Bon Appétit, August 2004

visit the Web site. There is a calendar for listing special events, and sharing photos. “I embrace the concept of a total information network,” she said. “Communication is the key to all Red Hat fun everywhere.” This Web site is not intended to replace the official Red Hat Society Web site, she added. That Web site is Young recently hosted a “hoot” at the Spirit of Philadelphia. There were 400 Red Hat women there from Delaware and the surrounding states. “I will be planning future events from time to time and everyone who belongs to the site will be well informed,” she said. Her latest project is as a team member for the Red Hat’s Off In Celebration of Lewes Delaware’s 375 Anniversary. Red Hat members from four states will visit Lewes on Sept.18 for shopping, lunch, teas and historical tours. For more information about this event go to and click on the Red Hat.

Bethany Beach celebrates New Orleans style Last year the Jazz Funeral was dedicated to those impacted by Hurricane Katrina Preparations are underway to celebrate the end of the Bethany Beach summer resort season with the annual Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 4, at 5:30 p.m. The Jazz Funeral is a lighthearted celebration that allows all those who attend to participate and become part of the parade. The 2006 Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral is a free “Labor Day Farewell to Summer” parade and celebration.

The Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral is somewhat similar to the Jazz Funerals that are held in New Orleans that celebrate the lives of those who have passed away. In Bethany Beach, the Jazz Funeral is celebrated each Labor Day to mark the passing of the summer resort season in Delaware's Quiet Resorts. At the Jazz Funeral, spectators go to the Bethany Beach Boardwalk on Labor Day Monday and can join the funeral procession of mourners that is accompanied by two Dixieland Jazz Bands. Mourners carry a casket with a mannequin representing “Summer of 2006” to its final resting place at the Boardwalk Bandstand.

Part of the Jazz Funeral festivities will be a series of brief reflections and recollections by Bethany residents, politicos and business people. Last year the Jazz Funeral was dedicated to those impacted by Hurricane Katrina, especially the residents of New Orleans. At last year’s Bethany Beach Jazz Funeral there was a memorial service to honor New Orleans and representatives of the American Red Cross collected funds for hurricane relief. The Jazz Funeral is based on the Jazz Funeral tradition of New

Orleans, where “Funerals with music predated the start of Jazz, and they continued with the contemporary New Orleans StreetFunk style of brass bands,” according to long time Jazz Funeral participant Kirk Rankin. The Jazz Funeral has become a tradition in Bethany Beach and celebrates its 21st anniversary this year. This end of summer celebration was founded by Moss Wagner, a former Bethany Beach town council member and businessman who owned and operated the Bethany Beach Ice Cream Parlor

and the Moss Boss’ Ice Cream Parlor. Wagner’s original idea was to have a party to celebrate the closing of the summer resort season “ a town where there is a definite beginning and end to the summer season.” Wagner was honored at last year’s 20th year event. Activities will be held at the north end of the Bethany Beach Boardwalk. Anyone interested in helping out with the event or for general information, may call and leave a message at 302-537-1585.

‘New’ Bulldogs are quicker and much younger in ‘06 By Pat Murphy The 2006 Bulldogs will have only four seniors in their starting 11 on both sides of the ball in a transition season after going 8-3 in 2005. That included a 41-22 first round loss to Concord. Gone to graduation are huge linemen and defensive backs: Tykie Hill, Rodney Simmons, Josh Byler, Anthony West, C.J. Cutsail, Kyle Jones and Tyler Schreiber . “We are going to be completely different, quicker and that is the exciting part said five year coach Ed Manlove. In his four years Manlove has guided the Bulldogs to the playoffs three times and has an overall record of 28-15 at Laurel. Lance Kelley, a junior figures to be the quarterback pushed hard by senior Bryant Knox. Kelley was injured in the opening game of 2005 and was out for most of the

season returning the the playoffs. Another possible quarterback is sophomore Brandon Hearne. Hearne, an all around athlete who is expected to see playing time some where in ‘06. Lining up in the Lance Kelley back field are all purpose players seniors Antwon Trimball, Ben Lloyd and Taylor Jones. After this the team gets young, very young and inexperienced with the exception of senior Trent Passwaters who will see action at both offensive tackle and defensive end. Passwaters was a big part of the team’s 2005 success and his size, six foot five, 260 pounds will led the way for ball carriers in 2006. Continued on page 44

Last year the Delmar football team just missed making the state playoffs. The Wildcats (8-2 overall, 4-2 conference) came within a point or two of making the state tournament, something the Delmar faithful would like to see the team do this year. “8-2 is a good season. There aren’t many years you wouldn’t do cart wheels for an 8-2 season as a coach,” said head coach David Hearn, who is in his 16th year at Delmar and 26th year overall of coaching. “The expectations are high for this group because they came close. They want to do better.” Gone from a year ago are graduates Joe Holland (RB/DB), Austin McLain (RB/DB), Zack Keenan (RB/LB), Blair Carey (E/QB), Brian Conquest (RB/DT), and Paul Hudson (T/DE).

This year’s group included 90 players, over 100 with the middle school team recently joining the fray. A number of the ninth and tenth graders gained some playing experience last season. Hearn says he has an enthusiastic, hard working group of kids this year. His team has some holes to fill at key spots on offense (replacing 1,200-1,300 yard rusher Holland will be difficult). Fullback and quarterback are the main offensive positions the Wildcats have experience in entering the 2006 season. The team’s returning players include seniors Darren Collins (OT/LB), Jenson Dennard (RB/DB), Donald Poole (E/DE), Alan Preston (QB/LB) and juniors Taylor Ballard (E/LB), Billy Cropper (T/DT), Gene Evans (T/DE), Kerry King (E/LB), Continued on page 44

Lady Ravens look to return to state hockey tourney By Mike McClure The Sussex Tech varsity field hockey team is coming off its best season in head coach Nancy Tribbitt’s 15 years of coaching the team. This year the Ravens, with four returning seniors, look to advance even further in the state tournament. “I saw a lot of good things and a lot of things we need to work on,” Tribbitt said of her team’s pre-season play. She added that her team needs to get used to playing together and has to work on its communication. Sussex Tech went 11-4 in conference play and 11-5 overall last season. Gone from that team are graduates Lauren Correll (Salisbury University) and Bethany Pavlik. This season the Ravens are led by seniors Tiamia Black (line), Hope Cornell (link), Brittany Joseph (link), and Katie Nennstiehl (back). The team’s other returning players include juniors Lindsay Danz (line) and Ellen Rowe (line). With a senior player at each position (line, middle, and back), Tribbitt expects

the seniors to help lead the way for the younger players. Tech’s newcomers include juniors Kylee Rickards (link) and Rhonda Warrington (link) and sophomores Lauren Joseph (line) and Sara Adams (line). “I expect them to step up. They’re working hard,” Tribbitt said of the young players. “We want to make winning a habit.” Tribbitt sees the Ravens’ speed as one of its strengths, while inexperience is a concern. She is looking for the team to be a contender in the Henlopen North with making it back to the state tournament and going further in tournament play as its main goal. Caesar Rodney and Cape Henlopen look to be two of the teams to beat in the north. “There’s so much parody in this conference. It’s a strong, strong conference,” said Tribbitt. The Ravens’ first conference game is September 13 at Delmar. “They’re (Delmar) just as strong if not stronger than they were last year. It will be a test of how hard they (Tech) need to work,” Tribbitt added.


Laurel hockey team aims for berth in state tourney By Mike McClure The Laurel High field hockey program had 35 to 38 girls out for the JV and varsity teams this pre-season, the highest number of players head coach Margo Morris has had out in her 12 years as the team’s head coach. The Bulldogs are led by four returning seniors who are looking for their first state tournament berth in their final varsity season. Morris, who is still looking for someone to step up and serve as her assistant coach, is pleased with the high number of players out for the team. Last year the team went 8-8 and was 18th or 19th in the state (16 teams make the state tourney). Gone from a year ago are graduates Krista Scott (all-conference), Miranda Dickerson, Ashlyn Booth, and Chaniqua Kellam. This year’s seniors are Kristina Ward (all-conference), Kate Downes, Kelly Gordy, and Samantha Oliphant. Ward, Downes, and junior Kelsey Gordy are the team’s captains. “There’s some tremendous leadership out there on that field,” said Morris. Morris said her senior leaders have an intensity and desire to win in their final season of high school hockey. Also back from last season are junior Kristin Phillips and sophomore Demetra Hammond. The Bulldogs have 19 players back from last year’s JV and varsity teams. The team’s newcomers include juniors Abby Burris and Ashley Hubble and sophomores Diane Paul. Chelsea Espenlaub, and Tykia Briddell. Morris expects freshmen Jenna Cahall, Ashley Zarello (GK), Taylor Littleton, Kelsey Oliphant, and Alexis Oliphant to see time with both the JV and varsity teams. Zarello is cur-

rently playing in the goal with Hammond currently out with a shoulder injury. Morris is pleased with the talent of the strong freshman class. She is looking for those players to learn the game and the team’s style of play. “Once they learn that I feel like they’re gonna step in at the varsity level and help out with no problem at all,” Morris said. “We’re going to have to plug in with some new and unfamiliar faces in key spots.” Laurel opens the season at Caesar Rodney on September 12 before hosting Woodbridge on September 14.

Delmar field hockey team looks to build on last year’s success By Mike McClure The Delmar varsity field hockey team came within one win of advancing to the state championship game last season, posting a 16-2-1 record overall (11-1-1 in the conference). While the team lost four senior starters to graduation, it returns a number of players with varsity experience. Delmar head coach Linda Budd, the team’s coach for 15 seasons, has been pleased with the shape her players were in during the pre-season in terms of conditioning. Gone from last year are all-conference and all-state players Lauren Ellis (center back), Erin Keenan (goalkeeper) and Leslie Lambrose (midfield) and midfielder Autumn Fischer. “These girls have some big shoes to fill,” Budd said. Back from last year are seniors Caitlyn Twilley (midfield/back) and Erin Tingle forward/midfield); juniors Alison Bloodsworth (forward), Katie McMahon (forward), Hali Ramey (forward), Megan Wilkerson (back); sophomore Lindsay Lloyd (midfield); and freshman Mallory Elliott (midfield). The Wildcats have nine returning players (seven starters) from last season’s team. “I’ve got a really nice group,” said Budd. Twilley, Tingle, and Bloodsworth are the team’s captains this year. “They bring so much to the players. They’re very encouraging,” Budd said of the team’s leaders. Delmar’s newcomers include juniors Brook Hearn (back), Haley Keenan (midfield), Carly Whaley (back), Emily Lietzan (forward) and sophomores Brittani Scott (midfield) and Shannon Wilson (goalie). Lloyd will move to center mid, Wilkerson moves from right back to center back, and Wilson takes over as the team’s goalie. “I think this team has shown me that they’re so versatile that I can move them. In field hockey you need to be versatile sometimes,” said Budd. Budd sees her team’s unity, good work ethics, good attitudes, speed on the line, good stick control, and good core of veteran players as its strengths. Lack of experience at key positions is a concern. “I think they’ll give everything they’ve got to hopefully be a competitive force,” Budd said. “The conference is so good and you never know each year. So far I’ve been really pleased. We need to work on the little things and work hard at practice.” The Wildcats are looking to win the Henlopen South, advance to the state tournament, and compete in all their games. Delmar opens the season at home against Pocomoke on September 9 before hosting Sussex Tech on September 13.

✳ AUGUST 24 - 30, 2006 Laurel football continued The center is expected to be sophomore Gavin Parker who saw action in 2005. On the offensive line with Parker are junior Esmond Ennis, who did a good job in very limited action last year, sophomore Tony Rubino and junior Tyrell Whitney. Pass receivers are sophomores David Albert, Josh Kosiorowski and junior Cody Bristow. Manlove says his team’s biggest liability will probably be depth with only 35 to 37 total players on the team causing many to come off the field after an offensive series only to return seconds later on defense and at that many are the younger players. Sophomore Tyler West could be one of these as he is listed as both a linebacker and fullback.

Delmar Sports Scene By Tommy Young Since the Delmar High School football squad was the only Wildcat sports team in action last week, I made the trip down to Salisbury Saturday to watch the Wildcats’ scrimmage Parkside High School. As usual most initial football scrimmages have three things in common: the temperature is always around 90 degrees, there is a lot of hard hitting because this is the first chance to hit someone who is not one of your own teammates, and this was the case Saturday, but most of the hitting was carried out by the “Cats.” Parkside had the size and the numbers but not the quickness or the speed, so it did give Coach Hearn a chance to see most of his squad in action. I did not get to watch the JVs in action, but from all reports, they did very well also. Fortunately there were no injuries of any serious nature. This week there will be plenty of action and most of it at home as the field hockey team hosts Washington High in a scrimmage on Wednesday at 4 p.m. Then on Thursday (today), the football team is back in action with a scrimmage at home with James M. Bennett beginning at 6 p.m. In between all of this, the soccer team will hold three scrimmages that are not listed on the schedule before they open their regular season against St. Mark’s at home on Saturday, September 9, at 11 a.m. The volleyball team does not begin their season until September 12, and the cross-country team does not have a coach yet; their season which is supposed to start September 13 is in jeopardy at this time. ASSISTS AND ERRORS- I know that Parkside High School plays their home football games at Wicomico County Stadium, and it’s a good thing because their fields at their school are only fit for one thing, practice. They have stands that hold probably 50 people on one side of the field, very little parking, and you need a guide to find the field. I know it’s hard to find teams to scrimmage Delmar, let alone get them on our regular schedule, but

Parkside High is the “pits.” I have been wanting to talk about this for the past year, but now that I have space, here it goes. Years ago when there was only one high school in Salisbury, Wicomico High, whose student enrollment was 5 to 10 times that of the smaller lower Delaware schools, they couldn’t wait to get them on their schedule, but since they now have three high schools and are as big or a little bigger than the Delaware Division II schools, they avoid us like the plague. They will not even play the Delaware schools when they both have open dates, especially if there are any Eastern Shore of Virginia schools available. What actually tickles me is that everyone who follows local high school knows that the Henlopen Conference is a much tougher conference than the Md. Bayside Conference, but, like all small schools, they have their bad years, especially after a good run and lose a lot of their good players and have to rebuild. For example, Delmar in 2000, 01, and 02 won 35 straight games and 3 state championships, and if the Maryland coaches had been paying attention when the Wildcats lost 22 players after the 2002 season, they could have jumped at the chance to put them on their schedule and had a good chance of winning a game because the Wildcats had to rebuild, and only won 4 games in those two years, but it’s too late now as that boat has sailed. Try 2008. To end this on another happy note, Bobby Causey who was one of Delmar’s better golfers a few years ago had not been playing as much as he used to until a couple of years ago when his son became interested in the game, and Bobby got back in the sport. Last week he won the second flight championship down at Green Hill. Congratulations Robert; however, I will still take those 2 strokes a hole, but I get to pick the golf course.

They competed in the 16 and under age division, finishing with an 8-3 mark against many of the best teams in the Eastern half of the United States (100 teams were entered in this tournament). The Chix’ outstanding and extremely pleasurable trip to Ohio was preceded by four tournament Championships in eight total tournaments during the regular season. One of those tournament championships, included the NSA state championship. The Chix’ team record was 37 wins, 11 losses, and 2 ties. The Chix also qualified to play in the NSA Super Nationals because of the State Championship and a top 16 finish at the A Nationals, but declined to go because of the involvement of seven players in the Senior League World Series. The Chix organization would like to thank all of their supporters for the huge part you played in helping us have such a gratifying 2006 season.

D ELMARVA A UTO A LLEY Non-stop action at Delaware Motorsports Complex By Bonnie Nibblett The Delaware Motorsports Complex continues with hot action every weekend. Though the season is nearing the end, plentiful racing action has been non-stop. The half-mile oval all month has had some supreme, tight racing action every Saturday night. The track has been heavy, fast speeds and a lot of wheel to action and last-lap passes. The Advance Auto Body URC Sprint usually visits at least once a month. Aug. 19, had a great show of around 30 cars to compete for the 25 spots to race. Curt Michael of Ocean View has almost captured the 2006 Championship with consistent finishes. The last visit Michael started forth, but to reach the front, he had to do some fancy reeling in on the leader. Rookie Brook Weibley quickly took the lead on the start from Josh Weller and leading for almost the entire 25-lap feature. Michael finally was about to reach Weibley but lap cars were also a factor. Michael wind through the front to take the lead just seconds ahead of Weibley at the start / finish line. Last lap passes really make for spectacular finishes. Other action on the clay oval has been

a wild and crazy time. This year has had quite a few drivers switching from their regular race division to one or the other crate classes; whether it be the AC Delco TSS Modified, or the TSS Late Model (former Street Modified). Quite a few drivers have come from Micros Sprints. Ross Robinson started the season with his first year in a crate late model. So far he has won seven features. Other new drivers to that class are, Travis Justice, who had never driven anything, but has been a contender from his start after the season got started. Billy Mellon came from Mod Lite Jr. and Mod Lite class to start driving this class. Go-kart driver Kevin Scott, Jr. has been consistent with top five and 10 most features. Scott picked up his first career win a couple of weeks ago; and it was his birthday, too. What a present to give yourself? Current point’s leader is Joe Warren for the crate late model division. Warren started this year after coming from Mod Lites and has been one of the strongest contenders against the new and regular drivers. The class has grown all season, just as the AC Delco TSS Modifieds were when they started three years ago. The

crate mods have been steady with at least 20 or more cars each week. The AC Delco has had new comers such as Ryan Walls, former TUSA National Champion, be a really strong contender the last half of the season to rack up five wins thus far. John Wynn is new, Mike White, Herbie Hemple and Eric Vent, all are new from micros or karts or never driven anything. That is one nice thing about the two crate classes, as it gives drivers a chance to race on a lower scale of cost and maintenance then the high end of super late and big block mods. Also, the crate programs are becoming very popular in other tracks and states. Late model action has a rookie that started this season off with a bang and still continues to be a force. Gary Simpson has been a steady, almost top-five racer every week. Simpson has been knocking on a victory each week and finally got his first win in the Super Late Models on

Lingo has hung right in there with the top dogs and is currently leading in points over 10-time champion Kenny Pettyjohn. The points are still very close. If he can pull it off, it will be his first championship. Matt Jester is new and only rookie in the big block modifieds. Jester also had to sit out quite a few races waiting for the motor to be repaired in the Clear Farms no. 62. But since his return in August Jester has racked up two wins. The Mod Lites class has dwindled down a bit with many switching to the crate classes due to cost issues and cheaper to run the crate. But the racing has been some great action.

Courteous cashier is a thing of the past “Must be friendly, courteous, and greet customers with a smile.” Doesn’t seem as though that is asking too much. Such is the wording (or close to it), of an advertisement in the entrance to a large firm that is seeking additional help. Friendly, courteous and with a smile is something that most of us subconsciously expect from a salesperson. This is not to say that it is the attitude we meet every time we enter a store. Sometimes we are met with a blank look of boredom, or a non-intelligible grunt by a person who is deemed the salesperson. Such is life in the year of 2006. The first thing I thought of when I read the sign in the window of the large store, that is part of a major enterprise that deals with the public every day, was how much grocery stores have changed. Here in Laurel, and in every other small town and every large city, there was a time when the sales clerks, stock men and women, butchers, cashiers and owners, knew practically every person who entered the store. Then merger became the name of the game, especially when supermarkets hit the local scene. The small grocer was eventually forced out of business and along with their demise the entire world of grocery shopping changed. For years and years, individually owned grocery stores were on practically every corner, small town or large city. A housewife would telephone her order to the grocer and in short order the groceries would be delivered to her door by a young man who was usually the son of the grocer. One of the most loved and special delivery people here in Laurel was Dale Marvil, deliveryman for Spicer’s Market on Market Street. Dale knew everyone in this town of ours, every street and who lived in what house. His pride and joy was the bicycle he rode all over town as he delivered groceries for George Spicer. Dale was one of many that through the years delivered groceries to the door of

Moments with Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton the housewife. He took great pride in what he did, and was loved and respected by all who knew him. At the larger grocery stores in Laurel, there were young men who were known as “bag boys.” Their job was to help the cashier bag the groceries for the customer, and then assist by taking the groceries to the vehicle of the customer and placing them in the trunk of the automobile. The cashier and the bag boy knew all of the customers by name, knew which groceries and brands were preferred and how to place the groceries in the trunk of the automobile. The cashier always had a smile, a friendly word, and made shopping a joy. Bag boys are a thing of the past, for the most part a friendly cashier is fading away. Far too often, the customer is greeted with an unintelligible grunt, the groceries are almost thrown into the plastic bag, and the customer is required to place the bags in the shopping cart and transport them to the vehicle. And so, it was with great interest that I read the requirements for those who were applying for the job of cashier. It will be most interesting to see just how many really do greet the customer with a friendly smile, are courteous and friendly. Bag boys are a thing of the past, I admit that. But, being friendly and courteous never goes out of style. A pleasant “good morning” makes the day go surprisingly bettor for both the cashier and the customer. Next time you shop, try pleasantly greeting the cashier. Who knows, you might change her outlook and your own without even realizing what you have done. And, “have a nice day.”

Health Patients should appeal those denied claims By Dr. Anthony Policastro Nanticoke Memorial Hospital Medical Director

Patients will often receive letters of denial from their insurance company. There are two reasons that care may be denied. The first is that the particular service was not covered. This can happen in two ways. One of those ways is related to a service that is usually not covered by any insurer. Cosmetic surgery is an example. Rogaine for baldness is an example. Other drugs such as Viagra are examples. In addition certain conditions require separate insurance. They are not covered by medical insurance. Dental problems fall into this category. Mental health treatment falls into this category. In either one of these circumstances, the denial will not likely be overturned. If it is not a covered service, it cannot be paid for. An appeal of the denial is not likely to be successful. The second way has to do with a service that is covered. However, the insurer

may feel that it is not medically necessary. In those cases, they will deny the service. Most of these situations are not clearcut. It may be obvious that it should be covered. However, the insurer will say that it is not. These are the stories that make the news. In these instances, there is always an opportunity to appeal the decision. In fact most insurers have several levels of appeal. Unfortunately, there are a lot of patients who do not appeal. Suppose an insurance company denies 100 cases. Assume that half of the people appeal the denial. Then assume that all of those people get the service paid for after appeal. That still means that the insurance company does not have to pay the bill for the other half. The lesson here is that the appeal of a denial is important. There are times when the insurer will expect to pay the bill on appeal. However, if they do not get the appeal, they will not have to overturn the denial. They will not have to pay the bill. You should also exhaust every layer of

PSA screenings September 28 Nanticoke Health Services will provide PSA screenings on Friday, Sept. 28. The blood tests will be offered at the Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center * 1st Floor, adjacent to the hospital from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. The fee for the test will be $5. Results will be mailed approximately two weeks after the event. Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring cancer in men. Between 1980 and 1990, prostate cancer incidence increased 65 percent. It is believed that this increase was the result of improved early detection. There is expected to be a further increase related to the use of the prostate specific antigen blood test. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a substance that is produced by the prostate gland. Men normally have a small amount of this substance in the blood. PSA levels differ according to age and tend to rise after the age of 60. PSA can be affected by several conditions in the prostate such as the normal enlargement in the prostate, which occurs with aging. Infection or inflammation and surgery to the prostate can also cause increased levels. There is no specific level of PSA that tells whether prostate cancer is present; however the higher the level, the more likely it is that cancer may be developing. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital encourages men over the age of 50 to take advantage of this service. If you are 40years-old and at high risk of developing this cancer you are also encouraged to participate. African-American men are at high risk for developing prostate cancer, as are men who have a family history of the disease. For additional information on the PSA screening contact the Cancer Care Center at 302-629-6611, ext. 2588.

Tribute to victims of 9/11 includes blood donation, registration This September, Americans can pay tribute to the victims and heroes of 9/11 by saving lives through blood donations and bone marrow registration. The first “Spirit of America” Blood and Marrow Drive in Dover will be held on Monday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Dover Downs Rollins Conference Center. Three local organizations — The Blood Bank of Delmarva, the National Marrow Registry and Dover International Speedway — have teamed up and set a goal to recruit 200 blood donors and bone marrow registrants. “We hope this special blood and marrow drive will be the start of a tradition to remember the victims of 9/11 and those who continue to put their lives on the line every day to protect the citizens of America,” said Gary Camp, director of public relations for Dover International. The event in Dover will happen in conjunction with 13 other NASCAR tracks across the country on 9/11, thanks to the NASCAR Foundation, the Hendrick Marrow Program and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation, all of which launched The NASCAR Foundation Blood and Marrow Drive. “There is no greater feeling than knowing you are making a difference in someone’s life,” said Karen James, Blood Bank of Delmarva spokesperson. “Whether individuals give blood or sign up for the marrow registry, their efforts will be heroic

in someone’s eyes.” Dover Downs employee Bob Spross said he plans to donate at the Spirit of America drive. “I know how important it is for the local blood bank to have the supply it needs for hospitals,” he said. “Giving blood is my way of helping our troops and anyone else who has a need for blood.” Monica H. Weber, assistant vice president for marketing and promotions at Dover International Speedway, said she’s been giving blood since she was 18. “I do it because I know I’m helping others - all I’m giving up is my time.” Along with blood donations, individuals can also sign up for the National Marrow Donor Program registry. “Every day, thousands of patients with life-threatening diseases that could be treated with a marrow transplant are searching the Registry for a donor,” said Alice Kaplan, recruitment supervisor for the National Marrow Donor Program. All it takes is a free cheek swab to join the registry. For more information, visit NASCAR fans and the public at-large are welcome to participate on Sept. 11. T-shirts and other prizes will be given to blood and marrow donors for their lifesaving efforts, and local businesses are planning on providing free food and beverages as a thank you to participants. “We hope the public will help us fuel patriotism on 9/11 by stopping by and saving a life,” said Camp.

Delaware Tech and Nemours partner to promote children’s health Promoting healthy eating habits and increasing physical activity among children is the focus of a new partnership between the Owens Campus Child Development Center (CDC) at Delaware Tech and Nemours Health & Prevention Services, a Newark-based non-profit children’s health organization. At a “Summer Field Frenzy” held on Aug. 4, children and their families enrolled in the CDC enjoyed a variety of outdoor fun and games. They explored an inflatable bounce maze, participated in potato sack races and healthy food relay races, and enjoyed obstacle courses, teamwork challenges,

and water activities. CDC staffers helped the children prepare healthy snacks like frozen banana pops topped with graham cracker crumbs, granola, coconut, or crushed cornflakes. The activities and snacks were planned following the guidelines of Nemours’ new healthy lifestyle theme, “5-2-1-Almost None!” Five refers to the five servings of fruits and vegetables that children should consume every day; two represents the total hours of TV, video game, or computer screen time per day; one hour per day is the recommended amount of physical activity for children; and almost none means children

should only consume almost no sugar-sweetened beverages. The Owens Campus CDC is one of four early care and education centers in Delaware to be chosen as test sites for the “5-21-Almost None!” program. The centers will help develop and test ways to integrate materials and methods now being developed by Sesame Workshop

and the University of Delaware into their day-to-day operations. “Nemours approached us about piloting this new program to help teach children and their families healthy eating habits and increase their physical activity levels, and we were happy to be part of it,” said Wendy Bernstein, Owens Campus department chair for Early Childhood Education

and chief administrator of the CDC. “They have provided us with funding for two years to purchase materials and provide teacher incentives as we implement the program. We will offer feedback to Nemours so they can fine-tune the program guidelines before they roll it out to other schools, child care facilities, and community youth organizations.”


“Women don’t have to live with a lack of bladder control— it can be cured.” —Dr. Tomas Antonini, Urogynecologist

Three crows test positive for deadly West Nile virus Three dead wild crows collected by the Delaware Mosquito Control Section during the first half of August have tested positive for West Nile virus following analyses by the Delaware Public Health Laboratory. West Nile virus is a mosquitoborne disease capable of sickening or even killing people and horses. The three virus-positive crows were found in or near the following areas: Hockessin on Aug. 7, Marydel on Aug. 8 and New Castle on Aug. 14. To date during 2006, no other findings of West Nile virus have been reported in Delaware, either from the Mosquito Control Section’s statewide network of 22 sentinel chicken monitoring stations, in about three dozen other sick or dead wild birds collected by Mosquito Control, or in any humans or horses. Neither are there any signs yet in Delaware

during 2006 of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus, another mosquito-borne disease that also affects humans and horses. However, peak activity in the mid-Atlantic region for both West Nile virus and EEE typically happens from about the second week in August through the second week in October, so occurrences of these viruses in host wild birds or vectoring mosquitoes could start to increase over the next several weeks, with some transmission to people or horses possible. According to Mosquito Control Administrator Dr. William Meredith, the Mosquito Control Section has responded to these three virus-positive bird results by increasing its mosquito population surveillance-and-monitoring activities in northern New

It’s a problem that plagues women of all ages—six to eight million of them— particularly those who have had children. And now, there’s a place dedicated to treating women’s lack of bladder control right here in Seaford. Tomas Antonini, MD, FACOG, is a urogynecologist—the only specialist in the area trained in both female urology and gynecology—and has successfully helped many women overcome this frustrating and embarrassing condition.

You should seek the care of a doctor if you: • Strain during urination • Urinate more than nine times a day or more than once at night • Have sudden urges to urinate and don’t reach the bathroom in time • Worry about restroom stops before you go out • Have wetting accidents during laughing, sneezing, exercise or sex • Have no control over urine leaking out

Techniques to treat incontinence include: • Adjustment of food and liquid intake • Muscle therapy using special devices to strengthen muscles • Biofeedback to help strengthen pelvic floor muscles • Medications to control bladder spasms • Surgery

The first few years they were under Maryland jurisdiction but have been under Delaware jurisdiction for 200 years. They will be getting a historical marker at their lodge on 6th Street in the near future. Their noble grand is Clark Spicer. Funny thing, my mom asked me the other day if I ever saw Seaford barber Richard Collison. Within minutes after I left her house, here was Dick walking his dog in Seaford. I called Mom to tell her and she added, “You know your dad thought a lot of him.” It got me to thinking (please no comments on that remark) that in Delmar there is Morris Campbell, 48 years at barbering. In Laurel there’s good ol’ Walt Hearn who started cutting hair with his grandfather Earl Wootten as a teenager more than 51 years ago.

That’s 150 years of barbering between those three gentlemen. Think of the stories they have heard over the years and the many, many hours of standing on their feet. As Morris told me, it used to be that every so often you had to renew your barbers license, now it’s a cosmetology license, I guess. The 1970s with the long hair was the end of barber shops as we knew them and I congratulate and admire people such as these three gentlemen who have kept the tradition alive. Despite health problems, Dick Collison celebrated 50 years of barbering in June. He has made many lifetime friends, you have told me so, as have Walt and Morris. In this, the day of superstars, here are three who have earned that status and they have meant as much as any high priced athlete or entertainer. For some reason Walt can cut my hair in a record three minutes now, but I can always fondly remember the days of that bottle of Vitalis and the green Jeris (my favorite) hair tonic. Have a super week and enjoy the start of a great fall, everyone!

West Nile virus outbreak was worst in 2003 Continued from page 55

Castle County and western Kent County, and will take appropriate follow-up mosquito control actions as warranted. Findings of West Nile virus in the three dead wild crows indicates that the virus is once again present in Delaware, as it has been every year to varying degrees since 2001. While this finding is not cause for alarm, it’s still a good reminder to take common-sense precautions against mosquito bites. This includes wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors in mosquito-prone areas, applying insect repellent containing 10 to 30 percent DEET in accordance with all label instructions, and avoiding mosquito-infested areas or times of peak mosquito activity around dusk, dawn or throughout the evening. To reduce mosquito-breeding, people should drain or remove items that collect water, such as buckets, birdbaths, rain barrels, old tires, flowerpot liners, depressions

in tarps covering boats, clogged rain gutters, and unused swimming pools. The worst outbreak of West Nile virus in Delaware occurred in 2003, when there were 17 confirmed human cases of the disease and two fatalities, plus 64 stricken horses. Fortunately, West Nile virus activity throughout the mid-Atlantic region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C.) has been relatively low during 2006, with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting as of Aug. 22 only five human cases to date, all clustered in southeastern Pennsylvania. On a nationwide basis, the CDC reports 581 human cases thus far during 2006 occurring in 29 states, with the highest counts found out west in California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado, in the northern plain states of North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, and in the south-central states of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. An effective equine vaccine now exists to protect horses from West Nile virus and

EEE, but unfortunately there is not yet any approved West Nile or EEE vaccines for humans. Humans infected with West Nile virus typically have only mild symptoms similar to a mild flu, if they show any signs at all. Rarely do humans infected with the disease experience sudden onset of severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, confusion and muscle weakness. Individuals with these symptoms should see their physician immediately. Suspect sick or dead wild birds for the species of interest (crows, blue jays, cardinals, robins, hawks and owls) when monitoring for West Nile virus can be reported to the Mosquito Control Section from Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. by calling 422-1512 Calls made after business hours or during weekends or holidays can be recorded on a taped message. Callers should give their name, phone number, address and brief message about the finding. However, the public should be aware that some calls left more than 24 hours be-

The Mosquito Control phone numbers above should also be used for citizens to report intolerable numbers of biting mosquitoes. The section uses this information about severe mosquito nuisance situations to help determine when and where to provide control services.

OPINION Labor Day, September 4, 2006

Letters to the Editor Lemonade stand raises money to fight cancer Kimberly Zoller, Cub Scout Pack 381 and Boy Scout Troop 381 presented Alex’s Lemonade Stand at the Nanticoke Riverfest this year. For its inaugural year at the Riverfest, Alex’s Lemonade Stand did very well. Hundreds of dollars were raised for Pediatric cancer research for the Alex’s Lemonade Foundation. Many local businesses took part in assisting Kimberly and the Scouts in their community service project. Thanks go out to Arbys, Hardees, Burger King, Applebees of Seaford, Applebees of Salisbury, Sam’s Club, Sysco Systems, Sonic, Food Lion of Bridgeville, Innovative Financial, Tawn Beard, 7/11 of Ocean City at 120th St., City of Seaford Electric Department and Grotto’s Pizza of Seaford. Alex’s Lemonade Stand will return to the Nanticoke Riverfest next year. A big thank you goes out to all the customers who bought a cup of lemonade for such a worthwhile cause. Paula Zoller Seaford

Accident waiting to happen The recent tragedy on Rt. 20 has prompted me to write this letter. I am visually impaired… legally blind… lost central vision. I live on Virginia Avenue across from the school and down a few homes from the police station. I walk to the Boys and Girls Club/Senior Center weekdays. Even walking off the road, I could touch most cars as they rush by. And most are going faster than they should. Even when I have walked with a white cane for the blind… there is no consideration. They do not move over even though there is no traffic coming in the other direction. I guess it is the sad way of the world today… incon-

siderate people. Or is it people who just are not thinking? I see mother’s walking, pushing strollers. Those infants are not only down low breathing in fumes but stand the chance of being struck with a thrown up stone. Maybe if you print this, someone will take heed. Katherine Bergmark Seaford

Primary Election Day Primary Election Day is just around the corner and I need your help! It seems a little different this year, since I am not out there campaigning. As you know, I have decided not to run for re-election. That does not mean that I am going to sit on the sidelines. I have accepted new challenges. I was given the challenge to see how many people I could help to get out and exercise their right to vote. The Right to Vote is one of the most precious freedoms that we have in America. Each and every one of us needs to go to the polls, and to vote for the candidate that we support. We need to see that the person that we think is the best qualified is the person that represents us. That leads me to the second challenge that I was given. Jan Ting asked me to encourage all of his supporters to go to the polls, and to cast their vote for him. I am flattered that he asked me to do this. I personally support him. He is the candidate we endorsed at the Republican Convention. In fact each and every delegate from Sussex County voted for him at the convention. It was a sign of true unity. Now it is our turn. Go to the polls on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Exercise your right to vote. Vote for Jan Ting for United States Senate. He is the best candidate. Tina Fallon, 39th District Representative

Why is the United States of America one of the most prosperous nations? No doubt our free enterprise system is at the heart of our great economy. America is great and prosperous because Americans are willing to take risks, to start new enterprises and test their ideas in the marketplace. Good ideas will prosper and bad ideas will fail. Our economy improves as ideas are tested. Wealth is generated in the process. As we prepare to celebrate Labor Day 2006, I find it interesting to look at the composition of our workforce. The following facts are taken from the U.S. Census Bureau Public Information Office, the American FactFinder and the Upcoming Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2007. But first a brief history: The first observance of Labor Day is believed to have been a parade of 10,000 workers on Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, organized by Peter J. McGuire, a Carpenters and Joiners Union secretary. By 1893, more than half the states were observing a “Labor Day” on one day or another, and a bill to establish a federal holiday was passed by Congress in 1894 designating the first Monday in September as Labor Day. And now the facts: • The number of people age 16 or older in the nation’s labor force in May 2006 was 151 million: 81.2 million men and 69.8 million women. • Americans work in a wide variety of occupations. Here is a sampling: Gaming services workers (gambling), 98,000 Hairdressers, hairstylists and cosmetologists, 738,000 Chefs and head cooks, 317,000 Firefighters, 243,000 Musicians, singers and related workers, 213,000 Bakers, 183,000 Taxi drivers and chauffeurs, 291,000 Service station attendants, 100,000 Farmers and ranchers, 827,000 Pharmacists, 248,000

The moon, and its relative distance to the Earth, affects tides on a monthly basis. When the moon is farthest from the Earth (apogee), tides of decreased range or currents of decreased speed occur. When the moon is closest to the Earth (perigee), the occurrence of increased range or currents of speed is more prevalent.
