Charity Lodge asks for relief from permit fees A Laurel non-profit charity devoted to helping others is hoping to get some help of its own. During the Monday, Feb. 2, meeting of the Laurel Town Council, Brent Nichols, Noble Grand of the Charity Lodge #27 Independent Order of Odd Fellows, requested that the town help the organization reduce

costs associated with construction permit fees. Nichols said the lodge is expanding its meeting room and will be building out to within eight feet of its existing property line. He said the town has informed the lodge that fees, including utility impact fees and code enforcement inspection fees, will amount to about $1,300.

“We have always been there for the town and the council whenever we are needed,” Nichols said. “We supply mist tents for the 4th of July celebration and tents for other town functions. We are hoping that maybe we can count on the town to help us out now.” Nichols told the group that the Continued on page five

Delmar students back in class after school’s heating system is repaired By Mike McClure The Delmar Middle/Senior High School reopened on Monday, Feb. 2, after being closed last week for work on the school’s geothermal heating system. The district planned to close the school last Monday and Tuesday, but complications from the repair work

forced the school board to cancel school for the rest of the week. “It was not a lack of planning or being organized,” Superintendent Dr. David Ring said. “Whoever thought that something like that would have happened at the last minute?” The district called for an emergency shutdown of the school on Monday and Tuesday so that workers could turn

the heating system off and tie two T’s together in preparation for connection to a new well field that the district plans to install in the next couple months. The geothermal system uses groundwater for heating as well as for cooling. According to Ring, the system has never worked properly, but when it Continued on page four

Papers back on regular Thursday delivery schedule

By Lynn R. Parks

The Laurel and Seaford Star newspapers are back to being delivered on Thursdays. Friday delivery, which was announced two weeks ago because of a change in the way the post office is required to handle periodicals, lasted only one week. “I am pleased that the post office worked to get the situation resolved,” Bryant Richardson, owner and publisher of Morning Star Publications, said. “I appreciate them working on our behalf to make sure that the paper gets out on time.” Rob Kern, Seaford postmaster, told Richardson on Friday, Jan. 16, that new postal regulations would increase the time it takes postal employees to process the papers, which arrive in the post office early Thursday morning. He said that the additional processing time would mean that the papers would not be ready in time to go out on that day’s routes.

Instead, he said, the papers would go out on Fridays. The new regulations are as a result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, familiarly known as SOX, sponsored by Sen. Paul Sarbanes (D - Maryland) and Rep. Michael Oxley (R - Ohio) and signed into law by President Bush in 2002. The act was intended to improve financial reporting for public companies and strengthen auditing and accounting services. The post office is affected by SOX in a number of ways, Kern said. Under the part of the regulation that affects Star delivery, workers are required to collect data about any periodicals that originate from their post offices, in order to ensure that the rates being paid by whoever is mailing the periodical are accurate. Mailers of periodicals pay according to how their publications are sorted before they arrive at the post office, with cheaper rates going to those whose periodicals are sorted according to delivery routes.

The Seaford and Laurel Stars are the only periodicals that originate in the Seaford Post Office. The Thursday, Jan. 22, Stars were delivered on Friday, Jan. 23. On that Thursday, the Star office received calls from “a couple hundred subscribers, asking where their papers were,” Richardson said. At the post office, that first new processing procedure went more quickly than workers had anticipated, Kern said. The newspapers were accurately sorted before they got to the post office, he added; “we didn’t find any issues that needed to be dealt with.” After that issue went out, Kern notified Richardson that if the truck that delivers the papers to the post office on Thursday mornings is there by 5 a.m., postal workers will be able to get the papers on the mail truck for delivery that day. The Thursday, Jan. 29, paper was delivered on Thursday. Kern said that as long as the delivery truck is at the post office

‘I am pleased that the post office worked to get the situation resolved. I appreciate them working on our behalf to make sure that the paper gets out on time.’ Bryant Richardson Publisher, Morning Star Publications

by 5 a.m., the papers will continue to be delivered on Thursdays. In addition, Kern said, after the post office has established a history for the Stars, workers will not be required to check the papers every week. “After we check for six or eight weeks in a row and there is no problem, then we will just have to check every few weeks,” he said.

Sussex amends public participation policy Council-watcher Kramer wants amendments reserved By Ronald MacArthur For now, the amended Sussex County Council public participation policy under “additional business brought before council” is in place. But, public comments critical of the policy may force the council to place it back a future agenda. As soon as the new council took office, there was a movement to amend the policy, which allows members of the public to address the council at the end of each meeting even if the speaker is not on the agenda. And leading the charge is councilwatcher Dan Kramer of Greenwood. Kramer, who usually speaks at the end of each meeting during the section reserved for additional business, has not spoken since adoption of the amended policy. The policy was amended Jan. 13 by a 5-0 vote. Kramer said he would not agree to abide by the rules as written, and he has publicly criticized the new policy. His criticism has caught the attention of council. “I’m not about to sign away my rights. There is no freedom of speech there,” he said. Kramer said the new policy limits free speech by putting restrictions on what a person can say, especially when it comes to addressing or criticizing individual members of council. Council President Vance Phillips, RLaurel, stressed there is no movement

under way to restrict free speech. In fact, he said, there is no requirement mandating council set time aside on the agenda for public participation beyond what is on the agenda. “This portion of our meeting is a tradition, but not one required by law,” he said. He said he asked Kramer if he wanted to speak at the last meeting. “Those are hardly the actions of a presiding officer who wants to silence the public,” Phillips said. Under the new policy, speakers must sign in, limit their talk to three minutes, address issues over which council has control and address the council as one body. The policy also states speakers cannot criticize a member of council or the council as a whole for matters that relate to personnel decisions or that are personal in nature. During the Tuesday, Jan. 27, meeting Phillips cut Councilman George Cole, ROcean View, off in mid-sentence when he attempted to ask a question of someone taking advantage of the public participation section of the agenda. He said only the presiding officer could address the speaker. Kramer said he would give council the benefit of the doubt. “They did not read it. It was handed out that night – they never read it – and only listened to what the attorney said,” he said. “They didn’t know what they were voting on.” Phillips said the policy might come

back for discussion before the council. In the interim, he has asked Chip Guy, the county’s public information officer, to review the policy. “You’re not abridging one’s right to free speech by establishing guidelines,” Guy wrote in an email to Phillips. It might come down to how people interpret the policy. Guy said the section being questioned does not prohibit the public from criticizing county council or its policies. It only prohibits someone from using additional business to be critical of the council or a council member for personal reasons. “That doesn’t mean someone can’t come in and criticize you for raising taxes or enacting a policy,” Guy wrote to Phillips in his analysis of the policy. “What they cannot do is come in and say they hate your style of dress or the way you speak. “This is a public forum, yes, but a forum in which there must be decorum. And I think you are within your rights to say, ‘Hey, we’re not going to allow personal attacks.’” Phillips said he concurs with Guy’s analysis of the policy. Kramer, who has called council members turkeys, said it appears the policy was written to silence him. “They are trying to shut me up. It would be better to just give me my 15 minutes and leave me alone,” he said.

Sussex County creates online ‘suggestion box’

Got a gripe? How about an idea to cut government waste? Now you can share it with the click of your computer’s mouse. Sussex County Administrator David B. Baker announced Tuesday, Feb. 3, that a new feature on the County’s website will allow the public to submit ideas on how to improve county government. The online “suggestion box” takes a simple concept long used in restaurants and businesses and puts a virtual, 21st century twist on it. County leaders are hopeful the public will use the feature to make a variety of suggestions for improvement, from what services the County should offer to ways government can save the taxpayers’ dollars. “Sometimes, the best ideas can come from the unlikeliest of places,” Council President Vance C. Phillips said. “We recognize that government doesn’t have all the answers, nor should it pretend to. The power of our democracy flows from the people. So it’s only fitting that the people give us their ideas on how we can make their government more open, more fiscally responsible and more efficient.” To submit a comment, go to sussexcountyde.gov and select the “Online Suggestion Box” button displayed on the main page.

Construction on boat ramp will start May 1, state says By Tony E. Windsor After more than seven years in the planning, the State of Delaware has committed to begin work on a new community boat ramp. With a price tag that is now estimated at $400,000, the town of Laurel has been told that the Division of Fish and Wildlife is ready to move forward on the project and will use special sports fishing and wildlife user license fees to pay for any necessary federal match for the boat ramp construction. According to town manager Bill Fasano, the Division of Fish and Wildlife, part of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, informed him during a recent phone call that it is now committing to a “drop-dead date” of May 1 to begin construction of the boat ramp in Laurel River Park on the west side of town. “I have been told that the state now has all necessary permits and plans in place and is ready to move forward,” Fasano said. The boat ramp project has been under discussion between the town and the state since 2002. However, a variety of chal-

lenges have plagued the project, including an issue about whether a parcel of land offered by the town as a required match for the estimated $250,000 project was valued at the required price. The boat ramp is scheduled to include a floating dock and a fishing platform. It will be located at the entrance to the Laurel River Park off West 6th Street and include a parking lot large enough to house 10 vehicles with boat trailers, as well as 10 single vehicles. The town will provide ongoing operational expenses and services including such things as utilities, repairs and replacement of all lighting, security and grass cutting and trash removal. The town is also willing to assume the role of monitoring the boat ramp construction, a job that will most likely be done by the town’s engineering firm, George, Miles & Buhr Inc. Full liability insurance coverage of the boat ramp property will also be assumed by the town.

was installed there was only one other similar system running on the Eastern Shore. The board decided to address the problems by adding components that were not included when the system was first installed, such as the additional well field. Gipe Associates of Easton, which has done design and implementation of systems in the area, was brought in to look at the school’s current system. After conducting four months of tests, the company made a presentation to the board in which several concerns about the current system were raised. The board approved Gipe’s recommendation to tie the two T’s together using electrical fusion. On Saturday, water began to trickle down the pipe they were attempting to tie into, causing a problem. Both ends of the pipe must be bone dry during electrical fusion or the process is contaminated. Ring said this problem caused the workers to start the whole process over again. Materials were ordered from out of state and the school was closed on Wednesday. Gipe Associates decided to do mechanical fusion, but overnight delivery of the materials was delayed by bad weather in

Pittsburgh. By this time the school was very cold and it was determined that the system would need to run for two full days to get up to 100 percent and heat the school to a comfortable temperature, so the board decided to close the school for the rest of the week. The mechanical fusion was completed and the building was back to a comfortable temperature by Sunday, allowing the district to reopen the school on Monday. Ring said the students will not have to make up any time because the district built in additional student instructional minutes into the calendar. The Delaware Department of Education can reduce teacher days based on just cause. Since both of the district’s schools are under the same roof and staff could not be assigned to another school, Ring believes the state board will not require Delmar’s teacher to make up the time they missed. The district’s teachers did work from home last Thursday and Friday. They were also allowed to come to the school to pick up materials.

Lodge says that permit fees would be better spent on construction Continued from page one

Lodge would rather spend the $1,300 on construction needs to help get the expansion project complete. “This project is quite an undertaking for us,” he said. “We do a lot for the community because that is what our organization is all about, helping others. We do this without expecting a pat on the back. We help the community and help people in general, now we are hoping you will give us some help.” Mayor John Shwed commended Nichols for the work that the Lodge does in the community. “We appreciate the great work that Odd Fellows does and there is no doubt about that,” he said. “However, as a government agency, we have to be sensitive in how we treat all of our nonprofits. We need to look at what we may have done for other non-profits and make sure we are being fair in how we address

these issues.” Shwed said the town staff would look at the request and research to determine whether there is a way for the town to honor the Odd Fellows’ request. “You have just brought this request to us tonight and we will move forward to get an answer for you,” he said. Nichols explained that the expansion project is being done to help alleviate “cramped quarters” for the lodge. It and its auxiliary, the Rebekahs, have more than 200 members. “This will be a very nice looking building when we are finished. We believe it will be a welcome addition and something that the town can be proud of,” Nichols said. “It will be a plus for the town and a plus for the Odd Fellows. And I think you know that a plus for the Odd Fellows will also be a plus for the town because of the

community work we do.” Schwed shared his own personal appreciation for the history of the organization. “I visited one evening as a guest speaker and was quite taken by a membership scroll you have on the second floor. I

Since 1991, through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity has built 36 homes in Sussex County. Fifty-eight adults and 104 children live in Habitat homes in the county. Sussex County Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian housing ministry with the mission of building “simple, decent,

and affordable homes in partnership with low-income families regardless of race, national origin, or religious affiliation.” The ReStore will accept donations of new and “gently used” surplus building materials, fixtures, furniture, appliances, tools and other items and offer them to the public at bargain prices: 50 percent or more below retail.

believe I saw members dating back to the Civil War. The Odd Fellows is certainly a very interesting group and a very prestigious organization.” Though he did not have the breakdown at the meeting, Code Enforcement Officer Paul Frick said the amount of permit fees quoted by Nichols sounded accurate. “I quoted him an amount based on the value of the project costs. This would be based on standard fees charged for construction,” he said. Shwed promised Nichols that the town would move quickly to get an answer to the Odd Fellows. Nichols said the Odd Fellows will break ground for the new meeting room expansion on Feb. 22 at 2 p.m.

Mayor visits Habitat’s resale store, where used building materials available Mayor John Shwed told the town council this week that he attended an event in Georgetown to recognize the Sussex County Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, a resale center for building materials, home fixtures, appliances, tools, furniture, and household items.

Health How much screen time is healthy? By Anthony Policastro, M.D One of the current recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics is related to screen time. Screen time can be in the form of television. It can be in the form of video games. It can be in the form of computers. We know several things about too much screen time. That is especially true for television. We know that in very young children too much time is associated with an increased likelihood of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). We know that too much time is associated with eating and obesity. We know that too much time is associated with an increased tendency toward violence. We know that too much time gives the perception that drinking and sex are permissible. The current recommendations are that children under age 2 have no television time. For those children over age 2, screen time should be limited to two hours per day. That is two hours total. It does not mean two hours of video games plus two hours of TV plus two hours of computer time. Limitations in time spent on these activities must begin early in life. A child who is not used to spending that much time on them will expect to have that limitation in the future. For example when a child gets a video game controller for the first time, the two

hour limit needs to be put in place then and there. It is also the time to let them know that they have a choice of two hours of that or two hours of television but not both. Most DVD movies are close to two hours in length. That means that children should see no more than one DVD per day. Computers are good for searches and contacting others by E-mail. However, surfing the net for hours and hours each and every day is not appropriate. I once observed a keyboarding class in a local high school. I sat in the back of the room as an observer. When class began most of the students began surfing the Internet and paying no attention to the teachers. Their point and click skills were great. However, their keyboarding skills were terrible. I see some children for learning problems who spend a great deal of time on video games. When it comes time to get their homework done, they will not do it. They play video games instead. This solution to this problem is relatively simple. They should earn their video game time by doing homework. No homework means no video game time. The same is true for other situations. For those children who want to spend all of their time in front a some kind of screen (computer, TV or video game), there needs to be a “minutes for performance” system set up. Activities that the child is expected to

Q: A:

Why should diabetics be aware of the “Red Hot Swollen Foot”?

The increasing prevalence of diabetes in the United States requires that both patients and physicians be aware of a serious condition that can affect the diabetic foot. Charcot neuroarthropathy, or Charcot foot, is a devastating condition most commonly seen in diabetics that is often misdiagnosed. It usually presents as a red, hot swollen foot. Other conditions that may present in this manner are gout, cellulitis (or infection), phlebitis (or blood clots) or trauma (even simple "sprains"), just in to name a few. It is imperative that the patient seeks consultation with someone who has experience in dealing with this dreadful condition. Misdiagnosed, this condition may result in severe deformity that sometimes unfortunately requires amputation. Therefore, ANY diabetic with a red, hot swollen foot should contact their physician and be evaluated immediately.

do (like homework or chores) should earn screen time minutes. Then when an activity is done today, it earns screen time for tomorrow. No activities today means no screen time tomorrow. The list should be adjusted to ensure that the child does not earn more than two hours of screen time per day. I sometimes will hear parents tell me that they cannot control screen time. They indicate that the child becomes angry and aggressive if not allowed to play their games or use the computer. In those situations, it is clear that the parents have bigger problems than just screen time. Counseling is in order when a parent feels that they cannot control screen time because the child is out of control. Actually, the child maybe out of control because they watched too much violence on TV. Thus more screen time will only make matters worse. The time to start teaching children about these things is when they are young. Three and four-year-olds should not have DVD’s serve as a baby sitter while the parents are busy. Video games should not be a way to keep older children quiet. Parents need to understand that too much screen time is bad. They need to take action accordingly. I know that doing this is not always easy. However, there are not too many parts of being a parent that are easy.

Look Good, Feel Better

Women undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer can now receive free professional help to cosmetically disguise the appearancerelated side effects of their treatments. Look Good, Feel Better, a program developed by the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the National Cosmetology Association, trains volunteer cosmetologists to help women with cancer, conceal loss of hair, skin problems, and other side effects that can result from cancer therapy. The program is geared towards helping people look their best even as they are undergoing cancer treatment. Although almost all of the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment are temporary, they can be very distressing. The next Look Good, Feel Better program will be hosted by the Cancer Care Center at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital on Monday, February 9 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Cancer Care Center’s 2nd floor conference room. The program is Free to all patients in active cancer treatment. Registration is required, and space is limited. To register for the Look Good, Feel Better program, please contact Nanticoke Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Care Center at 629-6611, extension 2588.

We Accept All Major Credit Cards

Russell Morgan, state conservationist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) recently announced that Delaware agricultural producers located within the Nanticoke and Upper Choptank watersheds can now apply for special assistance under the new Chesapeake Bay Watershed Initiative (CBWI). This new initiative offers technical and financial assistance to producers to install agricultural practices to help control erosion, and to minimize excess nutrients and sediments in order to restore, preserve, and protect the Chesapeake Bay. NRCS will administer the initiative as part of its Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). A total of $23 million will be available in 2009 for the six states that lie within the Chesapeake drainage basin. Delaware received $1.2 million. Funding for the other five states include: Virginia-$6.9 million; Pennsylvania-$6.7 million; Maryland-$5.1 million; West Virginia-$1.4 million and New York-$1.4 million. Morgan said that although some of the new EQIP provisions are not final, NRCS and local conservation districts are urging farmers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed to come in and apply as soon as possible.

“We are accepting producer applications now so that we can assess their current conservation plans. We want to be well positioned to provide contracts as soon as final details are worked out.” The CBWI offers assistance to eligible participants to implement a system of core conservation practices on eligible agricultural land. Delaware’s core practices include Manure Transfer, Nutrient Management, Cover Crop, Irrigation Water Management, and Heavy Use Area Protection. As an incentive to producers, there will be no acreage and/or unit limitations on these practices within the Nanticoke and Upper Choptank watersheds. Applications for the new CBWI will be accepted continuously throughout the year to be evaluated, ranked, and prioritized based on their potential to reduce nutrient levels in local waters and the Chesapeake Bay. Interested producers should contact their local USDA Service Center for additional information. Applicants should fill out the current EQIP application for the CBWI, which is also available at your local USDA Service Center. A full map with priority watersheds outlined is available online at www.de.nrcs.usda.gov.

Police Journal Vehicle hits police cruiser

On Wednesday, Jan. 28, at 3:50 p.m. a Harrington man was injured and a state police cruiser totaled in an accident on Canterbury Road (Delaware 15) at Midstate Road (Delaware 12), near Harrington. A 20-year veteran of the Delaware State Police (who is assigned to Troop 3) was stopped at the stop sign on Canterbury Road, waiting to cross Midstate Road and travel south. A 2007 Kia Optima, operated by Rory M. Dudley, 27, of Harrington, was traveling south on Canterbury Road, approaching the intersection where the trooper was stopped. Because of heavy fog in the area, Dudley failed to see the stopped cruiser in front of him and rear ended it. The cruiser was pushed 40 feet into the intersection. The trooper, who was wearing a seat belt and was uninjured, got out of his car to check on Dudley. As the trooper was attending to Dudley, Casey N. Kibler, 17, of Viola, driving a 1996 Nissan Sentra on Midstate Road approaching Canterbury Road, failed to see the stop sign at the intersection and drove into the police cruiser. Dudley, who was wearing a seat belt, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Kent General Hospital by ambulance. Dudley and Kibler were both cited for careless driving. Alcohol was not a factor.

Man dies while working on vehicle

Delaware State Police are investigating the death of Edward J. Hankins, 27, of Milford. Hankins was found Friday, Jan. 30, at 6:55 a.m. underneath a pick-up truck he was working on. Troopers responded to the parking lot of the Sunoco Gas Station at 840 Bay Road north of Milford after receiving a report that Hankins was trapped underneath the truck and appeared unconscious. When emergency service personnel arrived they moved the 1985 Dodge Ram pick-up and attempted life saving measures, but the man had already died. Police said that Hankins was traveling south on U.S. 113 when his vehicle experienced transmission problems. He pulled into the parking lot of the gas station and began to work on the truck. The truck was running when he lay on the ground underneath it just behind the left front tire. At some point while he was attempting to fix the transmission from underneath, the vehicle slipped into reverse and moved backwards, pinning him on the ground with the tire on his neck and head. The state’s medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine specific cause and manner of death. Investigators do not suspect foul play and are investigating this as an accidental death.

Two face hunting-related charges

Early on the morning of Jan. 29, Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agents arrested two Seaford men on charges stemming from illegal hunting activities. Jonathan A. Nichols, 36, of 613B Hickory Lane, Seaford, was charged with failure to tag antlered deer, third-degree conspiracy, hunting at night, hunting during a closed season, carrying an unlawfully

loaded firearm in a vehicle and shooting near a roadway. Joshua A. Baker, 19, of 14936 Hardscrabble Road, Seaford, was charged with third-degree conspiracy, hunting at night and hunting during a closed season. A 12-gauge shotgun and a whitetail deer were seized as evidence. A trial is pending in Superior Court.

Woman shot near Bridgeville

Delaware State Police are investigating a shooting that left a 30-year-old Ellendale woman with two gunshot wounds. Troopers received a report that shots had been fired on Wednesday, Jan. 28, at 12:40 a.m. at a residence in the 21000 block of SanFilippo Road, east of Bridgeville. When troopers arrived they found the woman had suffered two gun shot wounds to her buttocks. The victim, who is pregnant, was lying in bed with a male friend watching television when the two shots were fired through a bedroom window. The victim was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., where she is in stable condition. Police said that a single set of footprints was left in the snow, indicating that the suspect walked up to the bedroom window. These footprints were tracked back to an area where detectives believe a getaway vehicle was parked. This incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information may call detectives at Troop 4 at 302-856-5850 or Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333.

Drug sting leads to five arrests

On Jan. 29, the Sussex Drug Unit and the Dorchester County Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Sussex County Governor’s Task Force, Kent County Drug Unit, Delaware State Police Troop 5, Georgetown Police Department, Probation and Parole and DelDOT, concluded an investigation in which five individuals were arrested on various drug charges. Kevin Joyner, 48, of Hurlock, Md., was the first to be arrested. Police said that when Joyner was taken into custody on Woodland Road, he was in possession of a small amount of crack cocaine in his 2009 Enterprise rental vehicle.

Thompson, who arrived in a rented Nissan Murano displaying Colorado registration, was taken into custody without incident along with his passenger, Ian Albury. Thompson was in possession of approximately 28.4 grams crack cocaine, police said. A check revealed that Albury, 26, of Laurel, was wanted by the New Castle County Police Department for failure to register as a sex offender and violation of probation. Police said that Albury was in possession of approximately 12.1 grams crack cocaine, approximately 6.8 grams marijuana and a loaded 9mm Jennings handgun. The handgun was reported stolen in 2004. Albury was charged with failure to register as a sex offender (felony), trafficking cocaine (felony), two counts of possession with the intent to deliver narcotics (felony), possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony (felony), carrying a concealed deadly weapon (felony), second degree conspiracy (felony), receiving a stolen firearm (felony) and possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor). Thompson was charged with two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia (misdemeanor), second degree conspiracy (felony), maintaining a vehicle for keeping narcotics (felony), possession with the intent to deliver narcotics (felony) and trafficking cocaine (felony). Both Albury and Thompson were committed to Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $86,000 secured bail for Thompson and $52,869 secured bail for Albury. The last suspected drug dealer targeted in this initiative was Bryan Jones, 39, of Bridgeville, who was apprehended at the McDonalds in Bridgeville after a brief foot chase.

On Jan. 31 at 11:52 p.m. Laurel Police responded to the 400 block of Wilson Street after someone called 911 from that address then hung up. When an officer went to the front door, a male subject dressed in black and wearing a ski mask attempted to exit the back door, police said. When he observed the officer, Shawba Jones, 34, of Claymont, ran back in, police said. Then a victim, still bound, came running out the back door. Officers entered the residence and took Jones into custody. When they searched Jones they found a small amount of crack cocaine. Officers learned from the victims that a second suspect had run out the front door when officers entered. Police said that the two suspects entered the front door, both wearing all black and black ski masks. One produced a chrome handgun and the other had a knife, police said.

Man charged in fatal bike crash

Delaware State Police have charged a man in connection with a hit and run motorcycle crash that claimed the life of a 25-year-old Milford man. Troopers responded to the crash on U.S. 13 north in the area of Whitesville Road Monday, Feb. 2, at approximately 3:21 p.m. after it was reported that a motorcyclist struck a pickup and the pick-up fled the scene. Police said that the motorcyclist, Phillip B. Jester, 25, of Milford, was traveling northbound on U.S. 13, south of Whitesville Road, approaching the intersection. The suspect vehicle was crossing U.S. 13 from Whitesville Road when they collided. Jester was ejected from the bike and died as a result of injuries sustained at the scene. The pick-up truck allegedly fled the scene. A witness to the crash followed the truck to a residence in the 7000 block of Parsonsburg Road in Maryland and noti-

fied authorities. Maryland State Police and Wicomico County Sheriffs Deputies responded to the home and located the truck involved in the crash. A person in the home told police that Justin W. Mitchell, 25, of Salisbury was the operator of the pick-up in the crash and that he fled the home where he resides prior to police arrival. Police were able to get Mitchell on the telephone and convince him to surrender. He was charged with vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal crash. Police said that Jester was operating a 1996 Suzuki and was traveling in the right lane of U.S. 13. Mitchell, who was operating an unregistered 1990 Chevy pick-up, was traveling west crossing U.S. 13 northbound from Whitesville Road. The motorcycle struck the left rear of the pick-up, resulting in the crash. After impact, the motorcycle slid underneath a 2006 Honda Civic, operated by Michael Carpenter, 25, of Laurel. The Civic was in the center crossover, waiting to cross U.S. 13. The roadway was closed for approximately three hours as investigators examined the scene.

NEW LISTING

BRIDGEVILLE: Beautiful newly constructed rancher on large acre country lot! No attention to detail was spared! Hardwood flooring, sunroom, 2 car garage & much more!

I think that for a Bridal Shower, you can definitely get away with serving a light lunch or light hors d’ oeuvres. Especially if your event is scheduled for late in the afternoon so that it falls between lunch hour and the usual dinner time. I would simply indicate on the invitation that this is a light hors d’ oeuvres event. You don’t have to give away too much information. I would also select hors d’ oeuvres or lunch items that are the most filling, emphasize on the carbohydrates and nobody will leave hungry.

It’s official, folks. On Monday morning (Groundhog Day), Bob Oliphant went out and saw his shadow — what a scary sight! This means nothing, as Bob is not in charge of the weather, but I do know he is giving the folks in Florida a rest this year, as he is not going. Of course he can’t live up to the legendary Bill Davis of Delmar, who upon returning from his trip to Florida, brought oranges for everyone. Well, at least he brought me some. Delmar students have had an extra week off from school due to heating problems which caused their Delmar Middle School-High School Memorial Garden dedication to be delayed. It has been rescheduled for Friday, Feb. 6, at 1:30 p.m., at the high school. Wow, good news for Laurel. Kitty’s Flowers will be opening a store in Laurel, beginning on Feb. 9. It is to be located in the former Town Package Store. Some of the folks you might see at the store, of course, are Robin Gravenor and Kelly Jones. I plan to meet them very soon and this is without a doubt good for Laurel. Stop by and welcome our newest business. “I got to thinking the other day” is my favorite Sussex County expression.

when I heard that a lot of the kids around Seaford, Laurel and Delmar were doing a little ice skating, as several ponds were pretty solid with ice, I got to thinking. It took me back to 1957 or 1958 when the inside of Seaford Ice was converted into a skating rink. No one seemed to remember it but me, until I talked with Buddy Campbell, vice president of Seaford Ice on Monday. He said, “That’s funny, a couple of us were discussing this in the convenience store the other day.” Of course, Buddy is too young to remember, but others in the conversation did, including an 87-year-old gentleman, who remembers it being converted as a youth, long before 1957. My memory was as a 15-year-old going there with a young man from Galena, Md., named “Peanut” Shultz. His brother David is a DuPont retiree and Seaford resident. “Peanut” was visiting the Patchett family in Laurel and he and I went over to skate several times. He was quite a skater and they often cleared the floor to watch him. It was 25 cents to get in and I don’t know what that is in today’s dollars. They of course sold hot chocolate and you climbed the wooden stairs to take a break and watch the other skaters, particularly the girls. Oops! How old is Seaford Ice and does anyone have any photos or remembrances of this? Just reminiscing as usual, folks.

MORNING STAR • FEBRUARY 5 - 11, 2009

Education Seaford principal speaks at commencement Wilmington University students gathered in the Chase Center on the Wilmington Riverfront on Sunday, Jan. 25, to receive their diplomas at the university’s 38th annual graduate and undergraduate commencement ceremonies. Approximately 1,220 students graduated. These winter commencement ceremonies are two of five ceremonies held to honor the class of 2009. Wilmington University will also hold three ceremonies in the spring, two in Wilmington and one in Georgetown. One student receiving many cheers of celebration was Juan Diaz who overcame great challenges to receive his bachelor of science degree. “People told me I couldn’t do it,” says Diaz, who suffers from cerebral palsy, “but I proved them wrong and it feels wonderful. It really is a dream come true.” Juan Diaz decided on Wilmington University due to its small class sizes. “I love this place. Everyone has been so helpful,” says Diaz, “They are really like a second family to me.” Juan Diaz said he chose to major in psychology because he wanted to help people in his situation. “I wanted to help people, especially disabled veterans, cope

with being in a wheelchair,” said Diaz. Graduate commencement speaker was Todd Fishburn of Seaford who completed his doctoral degree and his master of education in applied technology. Graduating with a 3.77 grade point average, Fishburn juggled schoolwork with his full-time job as an associate principal at West Seaford Elementary School. Fishburn’s dissertation focused on the use of handheld technology in teaching reading to kindergartners. Co-founder and organizer of the MidAtlantic Handheld and Emerging Technology Conference, Fishburn is also a member of the board of directors for the Western Sussex County Boys and Girls Club. Wilmington University’s undergraduate speaker was New York native Nelly Savinon who graduated with her bachelor of science degree in psychology. Employed by the United States Department of Labor as a staff assistant, Savinon hopes to begin a graduate program in psychology. Clint Anderson of Seaford was one of thirteen other students who received academic honors. Anderson received a bachelor of science degree in behavioral science.

‘Lincoln’ to visit Sussex County

The year 2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States. The Delaware Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission and Delaware Technical & Community College, Georgetown, will present “President Lincoln Comes to Sussex” Thursday, Feb. 19, 11:30 a.m. in the college theater. The presentation is free and open to the public. Lincoln will be portrayed by Jim Rubin, a retired psychologist from Prosperity, W.Va. Rubin, who bears a resemblance to Lincoln, has been portraying him since 1997. His television appearances include the “Today Show,” Fox News, and CSpan. In 2004, he was appointed by West

Virginia’s governor to the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission to be part of the 200th birthday celebration. On Sept. 20, 2008, at the Lincoln Memorial, Rubin helped to unveil one of the four new tail-sides of the penny. Lincoln will be introduced by Russ McCabe, director of the Delaware Public Archives. After the portrayal, there will be a question and answer session with President Lincoln and Dennis Forney, publisher of the “Cape Gazette,” who also will be in period attire and mode. The campus Art Gallery, in the theater lobby, will feature a Lincoln collections art exhibit from the University of Delaware.

DelDOT using Web site to pass on info about projects

The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is continuing its cost savings efforts by transitioning from “live” to “virtual” public workshops when appropriate. Virtual workshops are a less costly way for DelDOT to interact with the community about certain upcoming transportation projects. In 2008, there were 50 public workshops and/or hearings. The main expenses were DelDOT staff overtime/compensatory time, outside firm time, room rental fees and fuel costs. Under the new process, DelDOT expects that many of the above costs will nearly be eradicated. Hearings required by law will continue to be held. The virtual public workshop, a web page that includes information about a proposed transportation project features an added bonus — the public is able to submit a project-specific questionnaire or survey directly online. The project’s description, design plans, detour routes and current photographs (as available) will also be posted. A typical live workshop is limited to 4 to 7 p.m. on a weekday. The virtual workshops are a more convenient way to learn about upcoming transportation projects. Constituents can read and review

the design plans 24 hours a day, seven days a week from their personal computer. While there will be deadlines to submit comments at www.deldot.gov, constituents will have several weeks to review the proposals before the due date. The Sandy Bend Road bridge project is the inaugural virtual public workshop because the project affects a relatively small number of residents and businesses in Marydel. The virtual workshop went live on Jan. 29. Comments are due March 1. Live workshops in facilities closer to higher-profile projects like the Indian River Inlet Bridge and Route 301 will continue. These meetings are more popular and better attended, warranting the expense. These projects might utilize a virtual feature in addition to a live workshop. Those who do not have Internet access may call DelDOT at 800-652-5600 or 302-760-2080 to learn and ask questions about projects. Comments will still be accepted by mail addressed to DelDOT Public Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover DE 19903. Businesses and residents directly impacted by projects will continue to receive notification by mail.

Entertainment Second Street Players presents “Arcadia” at Riverfront Theatre

Second Street Players’ upcoming production is a bit of a mystery. It’s a play you’ve never heard of, by a playwright you probably don’t know. Then, there’s the confusion around what the show actually is: a comedy or a drama? “A little of both actually,” explains John Moller, director of “Arcadia.” “It’s a comedy; it’s a drama; it’s different from page to page.” He invites the audience to come to Riverfront Theatre in Milford starting Friday, Feb. 13 and decide for themselves. Set in a mostly bare room in a Derbyshire Country Estate, the play shifts back and forth in time, from 1809 to the present and back again, to tell a story of ego, genius and sex. In 1809, sex is every-

where, in every nook and cranny of Sidley Park. Septimus Hodge, a tutor, tries to shield his young charge, Thomasina Coverly, from the scandals around her. Two hundred years later, it is those scandals that bring two dueling researchers, Hannah Jarvis and Bernard Nightingale to the Coverly Estate in search of the truth. The truth for them is hard to find, for the audience it unfolds before their eyes. “Part of the fun, as an audience member,” Moller explains, “is that we’re in on the joke. We know which theories are right and which ones are wrong.” And to add to the confusion of the plot, the props are not removed when the play switches time periods. Books, quills and

candles from 1809 sit along side the coffee mugs, newspapers, and laptops of 2009 in a blurring of past and present. The table, like life, is a collection of memories. The playwright is Tom Stoppard who wrote the Academy Award winning screenplay for “Shakespeare in Love.” Stoppard has proven his use of language is something you can’t forget. He is at the top of his game in “Arcadia” where characters offer insults, half insults and almost insults. The language is not offensive, hemlines and necklines are modest, but the themes and subject matter could raise awkward questions from children. Appearing in “Arcadia” are Amy Denham, Lance Ekas, Bertin Etienne, Mike

Giesweidt, Miri Goldsberry, Jeff Haslow, Randall Hilton, Darrell Louder, George Mason, Lorraine Steinhoff, Dylan Swinson and Amber Williamson. John Moller is director, Lorraine Steinhoff, producer and Denise Baker, consultant. Molly Barron serves as stage manager. Show dates are Feb. 13, 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees, 3 p.m. Tickets are $15; senior citizens, students and military families pay a discount price of $14 for matinees only. For reservations, call 302-422-0220. The theatre is accessible to those with disabilities; call for seating or audio assistance needs.

On Sunday, Feb. 15 the Ad Hoc Touring Company, a subgroup of the Possum Point Players, presents two original oneact plays by Ad Hoc member, Dick Rosse at Possum Hall in Georgetown. The 2 p.m. matinee features Winston’s Will, a mystery, and The Voice of God, the story of an old-time radio performance group. Rosse, former senior news correspondent for Mutual and NBC radio networks, says of the mystery, “It began as a little tale in-

volving the progeny of a rich and famous father whom the offspring cordially despise. The father reciprocates their loathing. Both father and children have murderous intent.” The second play is about average folks, getting along in years, who love nothing better than going on local stages to perform old time radio shows. Rosse retired from Washington, D.C. after a long-time career in broadcast news.

“Winston’s Will,” features local players George Spillane, Jim and Linda Killion, Sharon Gambill and Doug Friend. “The Voice of God” includes players Mel Kampmann, Pat Erhardt, Ruth Mankin, Roger Ault, Peter Shott, Frank Frey, Jean Savoy and Andy Stasny. During intermission, local musician Art Curley will conduct an old time radio trivia quiz for a prize. The Ad Hoc Touring Company is an all volunteer group performing in the Cape

Many who are eligible for earned income tax credit fail to file for it The Internal Revenue Service and Delaware community groups are promoting Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) awareness. This tax credit could be a critical financial lifeline to many Americans this year. Last year in Delaware, more than 61,000 filers received more than $117 million from EITC. The average EITC amount in Delaware was $1,918. Nationwide last year, nearly 24 million taxpayers received approximately $48 billion from EITC. The average EITC amount was $2,000. “Difficult economic times may mean more people are eligible for EITC because of reductions in their income last year. The amount of the EITC, the government’s largest tax benefit program for working families and individuals, is determined by earned income and family size,” said Delaware’s IRS spokesman Gregg Semanick. “Many Americans experienced financial hardships last year. People may be eligible for EITC for the first time and really should check out their eligibility. This is a significant credit that can make their lives a little easier,” said IRS commissioner Doug Shulman. “EITC can provide a real dollars and cents boost when it’s needed most.” For 2008, the maximum credit is $4,824 for a family with two or more children; $2,917 for a family with one child and $438 for a childless taxpayer. Generally, earned income and adjusted gross income must each be less than: $38,646 ($41,646 married filing jointly) with two or more qualifying children; $33,995 ($36,995 married filing jointly) with one qualifying child; and $12,880 ($15,880 married filing jointly) with no qualifying children. Even in better times, IRS research indicates that one in four eligible taxpayers fails to claim EITC each year. Those missing out include people who have earned income but may not have a filing requirement, non-English speakers, non-

traditional families, grandparents raising a grandchild, the homeless, childless workers and rural residents. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Taxpayers who earned less than $42,000 may take advantage of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and have IRS-trained volunteers help them e-file their federal return for free. Each year, the IRS partners with community organizations throughout the United States to provide this service. To find a location nearest you, call the IRS at 800906-9887. The Delaware EITC campaign provides free tax preparation assistance as part of the VITA program and can be reached at 800-464-4357. AARP offers the Tax-Aide counseling program. Trained and certified AARP Tax-Aide volunteer counselors help people of low-to-middle income with special attention to people age 60 and older. To locate the nearest AARP Tax-Aide site, call 888-227-7669. Free file online EITC-eligible taxpayers also qualify for online Free File where they can use free online tax preparation software that will help them prepare their return and e-file it for free. E-file software is the most accurate way to file a return and makes it easy to ensure the taxpayer is claiming the appropriate EITC amount. To access the Free File Program, visit www.irs.gov. EITC resources on website Nearly 70 percent of all EITC returns are prepared by a third party or tax professional. Tax preparers and taxpayers can find a wealth of information at EITC Central www.eitc.irs.gov/central/main/, which includes statistics, online tools and marketing products. Both also can use the EITC Assistant, which is an easy-to-use interactive tool to help determine if the taxpayer is qualified for EITC. The EITC Assistant is also in Spanish.

make sure that it was safe. “Well, you really should take off the hubcap and check the lug nuts,” he said. “There’s a tool someplace in the trunk that you can probably use to pry off the hubcap.” I couldn’t see myself parked along busy 13, rummaging through the trunk to find the aforementioned tool, then figuring out how to work it efficiently enough to separate the hubcap from the tire. “What’s my second option?” I asked. Well, I could just keep going, he said. But I would have to be prepared for what might come. “If you see your wheel flying up in front of you, you’ll only have a couple of seconds to react,” he said. Wheel, flying in front of me? I was beginning to feel sick. He went on. “After the wheel comes off, I think that the momentum of the car will keep the back end up for a while. But once you begin to slow down, the back end will drop onto the rim. You’ll have to be prepared for some hard steering.” I thanked him for his advice and said my goodbyes. They might have been our final goodbyes, but I didn’t care. I was ready for that conversation to end. I continued driving north, hypersensitive to any change in the normally smooth ride of the car and keeping a sharp lookout for flying wheels. Then, like a welcome oasis in the desert, there appeared in the median of the highway an auto repair

shop, its neon light glowing “Open.” I pulled in. The mechanic on duty had just the right tool for pulling off the hubcap, and knew how to use it. With a lug wrench, he checked the nuts that hold the wheel to the rim, making sure that they were all as tight as they should be. He even crawled under the car and banged on the axle. “Everything looks good,” he said. He predicted that a more thorough examination would find that the wheel has a bent rim. Thirty miles or so on toward Philadelphia, I was able to ease up on my lookout for flying wheels. Another dozen miles and I was able to start humming again. And when I saw my daughter walk out of the gate, I forgot about loose wheels and lug nuts altogether. It was, as I had hoped, a wonderful weekend. After our son left, our daughter spent the week with us. And when we drove her back to the Philadelphia airport for her return trip, no one bothered us about the condition of our tires. Today, I’m taking the car to its regular mechanic. It has developed a little shimmy after any encounter with a bump and I’m guessing that the shimmy and the “loose tire” spotted by that vigilant car passenger will prove to have the same cause. I just hope that the car makes the fivemile drive to the mechanic’s shop in one piece, without any of its wheels flying off. Despite advanced warning, I’m still not prepared for that.

A view from the cheap seats By Mike McClure, Star Sports Editor 20 years of service- This year marks a milestone for Laurel Youth Sports Basketball director Jeff Gordy. Gordy has been running Laurel’s youth basketball league for the past 20 years. I first met Jeff when I was running the Millsboro Basketball League. In addition to running his league, Jeff was also one of the referees who worked our games. I later took a team or two from Millsboro to play in the annual town tournament in Laurel, which is also run by Jeff and his wife, Marie. Unfortunately, the Millsboro League, which like the Laurel league had a long history in the town, is no longer in existence. I got involved because I was covering a Millsboro Town Council meeting where it was announced that the town didn’t have anyone to run its local league. I left after I got the job here and moved to Western Sussex. The league ran for one or two years after I left, then ran into the same problem, nobody stepped up to run it, and it disbanded. This is what makes Jeff’s milestone even more remarkable. In addition to coaching Pop Warner football, Jeff has given his time to the local community as director of the youth basketball league for 20 years. The league, formerly called Laurel Little League basketball, started 26 years. It became Laurel Youth Sports basketball about 13 years ago. The importance of youth sportsLaurel, Seaford, Woodbridge, and Delmar each have a youth basketball league. These leagues do far more than just give kids something to do on a Saturday morning. Youth leagues (that keep score) teach kids about winning and losing. In a lot

of cases this is the first time kids have to deal with losing a game. It’s not fun to lose, but in life we aren’t always successful. It is important for kids to learn how to deal with adversity. Youth sports also teach kids how to win. Just because you win a game doesn’t mean you get to rub it in your opponent’s face. There are many of life’s lessons that can be learned on the court or field. These leagues serve as feeder programs for the high school teams as well as the high schools themselves. Not every kid is going to go on to play varsity sports, but the lessons they learn on the fields can be taken with them throughout their lives. Quick hits- Laurel High kicker Kyle Brown is scheduled to sign a letter of intent to attend Delaware State University. See next week’s Laurel Star for the full story.

Sussex Tech girls basketball team defeats Seaford, 56-11 By Lynn Schofer

Tuesday was a difficult night for the Seaford girls’ basketball team. Sussex Tech came to their house and walked away with a win of 56-11. In the first quarter the Ravens outscored the Lady Jays, 20-5. The Ravens effectively executed the full court press, completed sharp passes, and worked together on the court.

In the second quarter the Ravens continued their assault, holding the Seaford girls to a total of two points in the second quarter. At half time Sussex Tech increased their lead to 37-7. In the second half Seaford was still unable to put the team on the same page and continued to make fundamental mistakes. Two of Seaford’s starters, Whitley Maddox and Anitra Hughes, did not play the entire game. Seaford did not score at all in the third quarter but Sussex Tech’s Dorzet Reed the Ravens added 12 more points to the board.

guy’s fault because he never had a clue. Apparently the GOP doesn’t realize we are in a deeper recession: 74,000 jobs lost last week, 260,000 jobs lost last year, unemployment at a record 4.8 million. (Again Clinton’s fault I’m sure) I wonder if the GOP is aware of the $18.4 billion in bonuses Wall Street bankers handed out including Citi group who was just handed billions in the $700 billion bail out. The GOP didn’t have trouble voting for their big buddies. (Clinton’s fault) There was no oversight on that money.

(Oops, forgot: Clinton was hiding in the White House even though the

other guy was president. Blame Clinton) Republican governors are hurting for money that would help with new projects that would create jobs and tax revenue, but like the Republican Congressman who blasted Rush Limbaugh, then later crawled with an apology, they kept quiet. Rush, who looks like he hasn’t missed a meal with his $10 million contract, speaks out of both sides of his mouth: “People who use or sell drugs should be jailed,” he said, until he was caught abusing prescription drugs then he asked for a free pass to jail. (Clinton shoved them down his throat.) He says he wants the Obama programs to fail and Obama should come to him for advice. I’d rather starve. And, while we’re blaming Clinton for all that went wrong the last eight years, let’s kick Franklin Roosevelt, who brought us Social Security and smack Lyndon Johnson, who signed the bill for Medicare. Can you imagine how the seniors today who worked when there was not a pension or 40l retirement plan could live? These are social programs. Republicans don’t like social programs. Down with Roosevelt and Johnson! Blame Clinton!

Gas Lines AAA Gaswatch Report

The national average price of gas held steady at $1.84 a gallon for most of the week and increased slightly at week’s end to $1.85 a gallon. Crude oil trading took a hit in midweek trading following the U.S. Department of Labor report that jobless claims rose to a record 4.78 million, coupled with another report noting a slide in durable goods. Crude oil closed the week at $41.68 a barrel, compared to prices of $92 per barrel a year ago. The Department of Energy (DOE) reported gasoline demand was down 1.7% from the same four-week period last year. The DOE also revealed a 6.2 million barrel crude oil inventory gain, putting domestic stockpiles at 338.9 million barrels, 45.8 million barrels (or 15.6%) above year-ago levels. January proved to be slow month for gasoline demand. According to the Federal Highway Administration, Americans continued to cut the number of miles they drive for a 13th consecutive month.

“Although producers have the power to tighten the energy spigots, they cannot control consumer demand. In light of lower demand, low crude oil prices and high supplies, AAA hopes to see gas prices move lower in the days ahead,” said Catherine L. Rossi, manager of Public and Government Affairs, AAA Mid-Atlantic.

One in five children ages 10 to 17 have received a sexual solicitation on the internet

If you have kids and a computer, you must read this! I am writing in response to last week’s

column written by Dr. Policastro, “Teach your child safe internet practices.” Dr. Policastro encouraged parents to limit the amount of time their children spend online, avoid having computers in private bedrooms, and monitor websites visited by reviewing the history on the computer, among other things. Dr. Policastro did a good job of outlining the basics, however, as a mental health professional who has provided counseling to teenagers who have recently been victims of sexual predators online, I think it is important to further warn parents. Afterall, one in five children ages 10 to 17 have received a sexual solicitation on the internet (Online Victimization: A Report on the Nation’s Youth). Dr. Policastro’s basics fall short by underestimating just how computer savvy teenagers are these days. For instance, trying to monitor the websites your child visits by clicking on Ctrl+H may not show you an accurate list of sites visited because a person can easily select sites from the history to delete while leaving others to make it appear as though only appropriate sites are being visited. Teenagers certainly have the savvy to do this. A better way to monitor your child’s online use is to install an internet filtering and control program, such as K9 Web Protection made by a compay called Blue Coat. It is completely free and can be downloaded by going to k9webprotection. com. This program has many different settings that can be chosen to monitor, filter, and control the content you want your child to access. It allows the parent to create a password so that these settings cannot be changed to gain access to inappropriate sites. Keep in mind that a child or teenager is never to blame by having “led him on” or having “asked for it” when he/she becomes the victim of an online predator. But an ounce of prevention is still worth a pound of cure! Natalie A. Cherrix

Such a pity

I do not think that I have ever met Mr. George Quillen. However, I feel great pity for a person who would demean himself as he did in a letter to the editor. I would like to share, with him, my thoughts on shoe polish fumes. Mr. Frank Calio’s parents left fascist Italy to come to the United States. They worked hard, worshipped God and gained the respect

I don’t believe that inhaling shoe polish was the cause of their success. If I did, I would be asking everyone to sniff it three times a day.

Fair and balanced?

After several weeks of reasonably nonpartisan letters to the paper, this week’s paper was abysmally biased in this regard. Specifically, the following letters were either anti-Democrat, anti-Calio or both: “Will the media report this?” by Lee Owens “Because it’s easy!” by L. F. Dill “What I learned while working on the election” by Larry Calhoun “Frank Calio was correct” by Richard Dale “Unpopular presidents” by Dan Manka “Writer says he’s scared of liberal thinking or lack thereof” by Steve Ennis “What a difference 4 years makes” by Bob Wooten - same message as Lee Owens Not one message supported our current president or the Democrats, save for Frank Calio’s column, which I found to be refreshing, but then I am a Democrat seemingly wandering in the wilderness of the land of conservative Republicanism. Generally, when Time magazine presents letters, there will be at least one each covering the opposing views, then generally letters that are additive, that is, provide additional information or points of view. We have elected a gifted and unique man for president. For the first time ever, a Delawarean has been elected to the second highest office in the land, which surely should be a source of great pride and encouragement for us all.

We have as our Congressional Representative Mike Castle, one of the more liberal Republican members of the House and for whom I also voted and have done so repeatedly. Interestingly, Representative Castle, who wrote a column in last week’s paper, essentially never receives a nod in the letters areas of the paper. Perhaps Castle is too liberal yet Republican thus creating a sense of confounding dichotomy for our conservative Republican brethren to comment on, neither fish nor foul, as to be negative would castigate one of their own. Perhaps Al Gore gave up too easily in 2000, but he wanted to end the nation’s uncertainty and thus, with the need to get on with things, graciously bowed out. It is time to do the same now, to end the bickering and support our newly elected officials. This castigation in the paper must end. We are better than this. We have greater problems to solve.

Vote for Venables’ bill

I support Senator Venables in his bid to protect individual property owners. I realize Wilmington officials have stated they only want the right to use eminent domain as a last resort but I fear “good intentions.” As a high school history and government teacher, I have learned that when

the government passes laws that have the potential to infringe on individual rights, it is simply a matter of time before they do just that. I feel once government officials gain the power to take property for private use that power will be abused sometime in the future. Thomas Jefferson was clear on the importance of property rights in relationship to other rights when he said, “The right to procure property...is essential to the freedom of every person, and our other rights would mean little without these rights of property ownership.” I hope those who feel the same way will contact their state representatives and encourage them to also vote for Senator Venables’ bill.

Correction

In a letter entitled “Unpopular presidents,” the following sentenced was printed: “Seven states succeeded from the Union when he was elected.” This was referring to President Abraham Lincoln. The correct wording should have been, “Seven states seceded from the Union when he was elected.” The writer picked up his mistake, but we received notice too late for the correction. We should have noticed the mistake ourselves, but it went undetected.

Snowmen have a tougher Doing the Towns Together time finding eyes nowadays LAUREL AND DELMAR SOCIALS “Daddy, what’s coal?” questioned the little boy building a snowman, when his father told him they needed two pieces of the black anthracite coal for the eyes. Most of us haven’t seen or thought about coal for many years. But, some of us can remember the days when coal was the main source of heating fuel for our homes. The shiny black, hard as a rock pieces that were used in furnaces was the main source of heat for not only our family but every other family we knew for the first 17 years of my life. At that point in time, my parents bought their first home and it came with an oil heater in the basement instead of a coal-burning furnace. My parents thought they had hit the Powerball (something that was not a part of life), the Jackpot of all jackpots. Every house on every street in not only our Ninth Ward neighborhood, but all over the city, used coal as the main source of heat. Every single house in our neighborhood had a small window right in the middle of the front of the house, between the porch and the ground level. The small window opened up toward the porch and was held open by a hook when the coal deliveryman brought the source of heat to homes. In the front section of every basement, there was an area partitioned off from the rest of the basement, with a door that

Moments With Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton opened out into the basement. On a regularly scheduled date, the coal truck would arrive out front. The operator would connect a chute from the huge truck to the opening of the window and the coal would be dispersed from truck to basement. The sound was almost deafening, and a light dust filled the coal bin area. My Dad would shovel loads of coal to the furnace so that we would have heat, “banking” the fire at night and replenishing the flame every morning. He would remove the spent coals into a metal container and they then would be sifted through a small machine so that any pieces with life left in them could be reused. When the little sifter filled, my sisters, brother and I had the miserable assignment of cranking the spent coals around and around, salvaging any reusable pieces for the bucket-a-day heater in our kitchen. Each of us hated that job but never argued about it. The Great Depression was at its peak in this nation and absolutely everyone did everything they could to reuse, salvage and recycle. On bitter cold days, my mother would hang my dad’s work clothes to dry down in the basement, but never when it was near coal delivery day. She hated that coal dust with a passion, and we all understood her feelings. Mother and every woman of those days hung clothes out in the yard to dry. On bitter cold days, the clothes would freeze almost as quickly as they hung them on the line. But that was a way of life then. Sheets and towels were always hung outside and only on snowy days were dark or colored clothes hung in the back area of the basement. Automatic washers and clothes dryers did not come into being until well after World War II. When my parents bought their home, the first thing mother asked was, “What type of heat does the house have?” When the response came that the furnace had been converted to oil heat, she truly was the happiest woman on earth. The new house had a large basement, with a converted coal storage space in the front. All of that space meant that on freezing cold days, the wash could be hung in the basement without fear of coal dust leaving smudges on the clean clothes. Laundromats were something else that were not on the “daily life screen” until well after World War II. The first one Chuck and I remember in this area was one owned by the Chaneys of Bridgeville. Time passes by. Life changes. Snowmen, on the average, no longer have eyes of coal. But, the joy of building one on a snowy day remains.

Opinion Guest Column Sussex County facing some changes

By Vance Phillips

President, Sussex County Council

Change is not always good. Yet a transformation has occurred in the Sussex County Council which, thanks to experienced staff and a thoughtful set of new council members, brings hope for a brighter future. For 10 years, the composition of the Sussex County Council remained the same. But this past November, three new public servants were elected, representing an unprecedented 60 percent turnover in the five-member body. Under normal circumstances, this is extremely rare. Imagine the Delaware General Assembly welcoming 37 new members out of its 62-member body, or Congress turning over 321 members of its 535 senators and congressmen in a single election. This is a rare moment indeed, one that has required our newest public servants to hit the ground running. And these unusual circumstances require unusual solutions. On Tuesday, Jan. 20, the County announced it was facing a $7.7 million general fund shortfall in the current year’s $54 million general fund budget, which runs through June 30. This represents a staggering 14 percent deficit. By comparison, the State of Delaware’s current budget shortfall before recent budget adjustments was a little over 4 percent. To drop such a fiscal time bomb in the lap of a new council might ordinarily rattle the nerves of newly elected public servants. Fortunately for the taxpayers of Sussex, their new council has signaled a disciplined attitude toward our County finances by accepting the Administration’s efforts to cut the budget and find savings, without entertaining the possibility of raising taxes. This is a reassuring course in a time when the taxpayers of Sussex County are weathering their own rainy days. Through the efforts of a dedicated budget committee, a cooperative team of department heads and the determined leadership of County Administrator David Baker and Finance Director Susan Webb, the Council was presented with more than $2.4 million in general fund budget cuts and savings. Although this is a long way from closing the $7.7 million gap, it is a good first step. Additionally, the Administration also identified more than $4.5 million in major capital projects that could be put off during the current fiscal year. The Council is sensitive to the difficulties in delaying certain projects that are critical for regulatory or environmental compliance, or may offer economic development opportunities for the county. But in this case, the stop-gap amount these delays represent will have to be made available to close the budget hole if other cuts and savings cannot be found in the next quarterly report by the AdContinued to page 55

Delaware sports gaming is under consideration

Will sport-betting be coming to the First State? That’s a question members of the Markell administration will be working to answer over the next six weeks. “There has been no decision made,” Delaware Sec. of Finance Gary M. Pfeiffer recently told the House of Representatives’ Gaming & Pari-Mutuels Committee. “The governor has said he’s prepared to evaluate it and we’re prepared to analyze it and make a recommendation to him that’s consistent with the values of the State of Delaware [and] that’s in (our) best economic interests.” The House and Senate are in recess for the next six weeks while the Joint Finance Committee conducts budget hearings. During that time, Sec. Pfeiffer said his agency will be exploring the issue and providing information to Gov. Markell on which he’ll base his decision. State House Minority Whip Dan Short (R-Seaford), who sits on the House Gaming & Pari-Mutuels Committee, says he’s undecided on the issue. “I want to see the Attorney General’s position on this, I want to know the type of games we’re going to be running, and I want to know how it would be implemented.” Following are two letters, one in support of sports betting and one opposed. Let your elected officials know your thoughts on this issue. Visit de.gov to track the progress of the bill and voice your concerns.

It’s time for sports betting!

There are many important issues on the table for our state government to deal with this year. Many of these will impact our lives as economic downturns affect us all. I believe that it is time to proceed with sports betting to help our budget deficits. It will take a few months to get this in motion. A projected time to initiate sports betting should be the upcoming football season. That would give our government certified outlets time to get ready and put in place the necessary components to operate along with the hiring of staff to operate the games. Training of the new employees will also be necessary as the game itself is a little more sophisticated than pulling a slot lever or picking lotto

Letters to the Editor numbers. Recently obtained numbers show that last year Nevada recorded $2.5 billion in sports bets. Delaware, being the only state in the east, could certainly use part of that $2.5 billion. Delaware would be much more palatable in the east to sports betting wagers than going all the way out to the desert to place these kind of bets. Can you imagine that kind of money in our state coffers? What problems could we solve? No increase in taxes, raising of service fees and tolls. Education would be stabilized without the potential of losing teachers or raising class sizes. Bridges and highways could once again continue to be upgraded. Our present overloaded court systems could normalize. Jobs would be provided. Economic trickle down for other businesses. Delaware, it is time to become number one again. No other state has this opportunity! Imagine, Dover Downs for example, as a destination for sports bettors - the hotel convenience for overnight players as is associated with this game; restaurant sales that will increase; and the overlap of slot and lottery play. Dover Downs also provides first class shows (similar to Las Vegas). Talk about a package in the east! Delaware could become the Mecca of the east. Hello Philadelphia, hello Baltimore and D.C.! Guess what? More jobs. Dover Downs is just one of our casinos that could pave the way for sports betting. There is a new sports oriented lottery game that is currently being introduced to several states throughout the country and Lotto Quebec of Canada. The game, as a lottery game, essentially picks six high final scores and six low final scores for football games, for example, and rolls over like Powerball to large jackpots. This game alone could bring multi-millions to Delaware as it crosses sports barriers to include all sports, such as Nascar, baseball, basketball, etc. Razor Sports pro-

As one expert put it so well, “the Razor Sports game will be bigger in the U.S. than Texas Hold’em.” So I can only urge Delaware to start investigating these potentials that are out there.

Vote against sports betting

Sports betting will be coming up for vote in the House soon. I want to know everyone else’s feeling on it. I am against it especially in this poor economy. I fear for those people who are struggling looking for paydirt with one football game or basketball game. Even those who are avid sports fans may be sure they know the outcome of the game, but there are always upsets. Look at the Arizona Cardinals. Who ever thought they would be in the Super Bowl? So what happens to these people when they lose and lose? They end up in the crime system or welfare system. Yes, of course sports betting already exists here illegally, but so does illegal drug use and distribution. How many millions in tax revenue could we gain if cocaine and marijuana were legal? I would like to see the statistics on crime increase, gambling addiction and welfare claimants or recipients if sports betting was instituted. If you are against sports betting call your legislators now or visit www.de.gov and email them. Your voice does matter. Whether this passes or fails, I do not and will not sports bet. Remember, if government was designed to work for the people, then why should we allow sports betting which could hurt the people? The government needs money. We all need money. When we don’t have it, we cut spending and so should the government. Scott Wilkins

Lincoln, Darwin share birthday Most of those born on Feb. 12, 1809 have long been forgotten, but the lives of two men born on that day still influence society today. Abraham Lincoln’s resolve to reunite this nation under the conviction that “all men are created equal” started our country on a course of action that eventually would lead us closer to this reality. Charles Darwin’s work, On the Origin of Species, remains a topic of discussion and debate 150 years after its release. Some say we should stop the debate and accept Darwin’s theory as fact while others say that the accumulating evidence of the complexity of life refutes his theory and points to a designer. The University of Delaware Library is observing the birth of Abraham Lincoln with a major exhibition, “Abraham Lincoln: A Bicentennial Celebration,” which is on view in the Special Collections Exhibition Gallery of the Morris Library of the University of Delaware, South College Avenue at Winslow Road, on UD’s Newark campus through June 5.

ministration. To prevent future capital delays or draining of critical reserves, I can assure you that the budget team will be working very hard in the coming months to stop the bleeding and turn the tide of red ink into black. This will be no small task, considering important revenue streams likely will continue to flow at a trickle. Meantime, the County’s 2010 budget to be unveiled this spring will have many changes. Fortunately, the budget review done in the last month has laid the groundwork for a methodical analysis of all County expenditures. Additionally, performance audits as recommended by the Government Finance Officers Association will be considered to make the County more efficient and streamline our processes in order to save the taxpayers’ money, while preserving County services. Sussex County is a wonderful place to live, and our low taxes represent one of its greatest quality-of-life assets.
