With unanimous vote, council approves Discovery annexation Hours before vote, opposition group files lawsuit By Tony E. Windsor Despite the filing of a lawsuit against the Laurel Town Council by a local group opposed to the development of 500 acres of land northeast of town, the council on Monday moved forward with annexation of the property. The annexation opens the door for development of a major residential, retail and sports complex known as Discovery. A packed council chambers heard the council vote unanimously to both annex the 500 acres and bring it into the town as a Large Parcel Development Overlay. The LPD enables developers of the Discovery Group to construct a complex that
includes such features as a 1,400-unit residential complex, three hotels, two stadiums, an equestrian center and more than 1 million square feet of retail space. The project is planned to be built in three or four phases over 12 to 14 years and each phase must be brought back before the town’s Planning and Zoning Committee and Mayor and Council for approval. Members of the Sussex County Organization to Limit Development Mistakes (SCOLDM) once again appeared before the council to express their opposition to the Discovery Project. The group, according to its mission statement, was organized “to help limit mistakes in the massive development in Sussex County
Delaware and allow the people who make Sussex County their home to have a voice on how development affects their lives.” SCOLDM spokesman, W.D. Whaley, said his organization is “disappointed” that the council decided to move forward with annexation of the Discovery property. “As you are probably aware, at about 1:50 p.m. today a lawsuit was filed in court and we are obviously very disappointed by your decision to proceed with the annexation vote this evening,” he said. “On our view, your disregard for the laws pertaining to the annexation process is yet another example of your overzealous attitude toward this one developContinued on page 10

Celebration of King’s birthday set for Monday By Lynn R. Parks Among America’s slaves, homemade quilts may have been more than coverings for beds. They may also have served as secret messages for those who wanted to escape their bondage, with codes hidden in the patterns and colors of the quilts. As part of the Western Sussex Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration planned Monday for Seaford, a group of sisters will present a program based on what some historians believe was a “code of quilts.” Seven Quilts for Seven Sisters will take the stage at the Western Sussex Boys and Girls Club at noon. “They will sing songs and use drama and quilts to show how slaves communicated,” said Betty L. Ricks-Jarmon, spokeswoman for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration committee. “Quilts were always an integral part of the slave culture.” Seven Quilts for Seven Sisters is made up of five sisters who grew up in New Jersey. (Two sisters are deceased.) Phyllis Walker, one of the sisters who lives in Mullica Hill, N.J., said that the group does about 60 shows a year and has traveled to 17 states in the northeast part of the country. The programs focus on slavery, on slaves’ struggles for freedom and on crafts practiced and songs sung by American slaves. Walker said that it is important to make children understand what it was like to be a slave. “People living today have always been free,” she said. “It’s hard to explain to a child what not being free is like. We try to make them understand how every minutes of a slave’s life was controlled by someone else. Through that, we hope that the children learn to appreciate their freedom.” The stories of America’s slaves also carry a message for children who are struggling to overcome problems, Walker added. “I hope that they will realize that by using our God-given talents, we can overcome any type of bondage we may have,” she said. “Bondage can include drugs, trouble in school, anything that keeps you from doing what you should be doing.” Ricks-Jarmon said that the presentation, as well as other activities planned for Monday’s celebration, are intended to teach children the history and heritage of African-Americans. “We hope that African-American children learn to appreciate that history, and to realize that the people who came before them left a great

Keynote speaker will be Dara Laws, the Seaford School District’s 2007 teacher of the year. Master of ceremonies will be Laws’ sister, Desiree Moore.

LVFD plans to keep 10th Street station, build two substations Chief: ‘We were going to have a substation east of US13 with or without Discovery’ By Tony E. Windsor In a presentation before the Laurel Town Council, the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department fire chief shared information he hopes will clear up confusion that seems to have developed regarding the plans of the fire department. On Monday night, Jan. 8, Fire Chief Mark Sheridan and Deputy Chief Jeff Hill appeared before the council following the body’s vote to approve annexation of the 500-acre Discovery property east of US 13. Sheridan said the fact that the Discovery Project has included information about the construction of a fire substation on the property has led some people to believe that the fire department may be abandoning it main 10th Street fire station in town. “I have sat back the last couple of weeks and listened as the discussions regarding the Discovery project have taken place. I am now hoping to clear up any confusion regarding the fire department’s plans regarding a substation on the east side of US 13,” Sheridan said. Sheridan explained that the Laurel Fire Department has been working with a strategic plan it developed in 2004 through Nutter and Associates, the professional consulting firm used by the town of Laurel in developing its state-certified Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Sheridan said there are no plans to abandon the 10th Street fire station and said renovation work is being done at that station to prepare it for future fire service needs. Work includes new offices, bunk rooms and a training room. Sheridan said Laurel is the only fire department of the 60 departments statewide to have such a formal strategic plan in place. He said the fire district serviced by the LVFD is the largest in the state with 80 square miles of service area. It was determined early on in the strategic plan that the Laurel Fire Department would need to build a substation on the east side of US 13, he said, in order to provide efficient and effective fire service to the fire district located east of Laurel’s corporate limits. When it was learned that construction work along Delaware Avenue in Laurel would create a time issue for fire trucks and emergency vehicles to get out to US 13 and over to the east side of US13, the LVFD established a temporary substation on Sycamore Road, east of US 13, which houses a fire truck and emergency equipment. This substation was approved by the State Fire Prevention Com-
mittee. Sheridan said there have been instances where the east substation has been a valuable resource for the fire department, including a time when the operation of the Conrail train kept trucks from immediate access to US 13 for a fire call east of Laurel. A truck was dispatched from the east side substation and it was able to quickly join the Gumboro Fire Department at the scene of the fire. As part of its strategic plan the LVFD is also planning a second substation to be located west of Laurel in Bethel. “We are unique in that we cover two communities in our fire district,” Sheridan said. “We have approached the town of Bethel about building a substation in their area and they have been very receptive to that idea.” Sheridan said plans are in the works to have a permanent substation on the east side of US 13, something that was being planned long before the Discovery project was introduced. He said that Bobby Horsey of the David G. Horsey family, one of the partners in the Discovery Project, approached the fire department about locating on the Discovery Project site and presented a plan for where the substation could be located. “We have been given a lot of heat for being in support of the Discovery Project,” Sheridan said. “The proposal by the Horseys is a very good one; however, we were going to have a substation on the east side of US13 with or without the Discovery Project,” he said. Sheridan used the example of Ross Point Farms, a 1,500-unit residential development “in the middle of nowhere.” Though in Laurel’s fire district, the development is 6 miles from Laurel and would be very difficult to access in quick fashion with only the 10th Street fire station. “We just want to make sure everyone realizes that we have no plans to abandon our main 10th Street fire station, but we need an east substation on the other side of US 13 in order to provide efficient fire and emergency service to everyone in our fire service area,” he said. Laurel Mayor John Shwed thanked Sheridan for taking the time to clear up any confusion about the issue of the fire department’s substation. Shwed added that he also wants the public to be clear about the fact that there are no plans by the town to relocate Laurel Town Hall from its present location.

Donated land will become part of town’s greenway By Tony E. Windsor Laurel Mayor John Shwed made an announcement during the Monday, Jan. 8, meeting of the Laurel Town Council that he introduced as “good news for the citizens of Laurel.” Shwed said the town will soon go to settlement on a 1.6-acre parcel of land that is being donated to the town by Growmark FS. The property is located on the north bank of Broad Creek. It stretches from Poplar Street on the east to the railroad property on the west. Shwed said this parcel will be another piece in the planned greenway that will eventually connect Janosik Park on the east to Laurel River Park on the west side of the town. In exchange for the property, the town will pay $27,000 for the installation of a fire hydrant and water line to serve the Growmark facility. Additionally, the town has agreed to maintain the grassy area owned by Growmark from the donated property’s northern boundary to the existing Growmark fence line for the next 10 years. Shwed said Monday night that the town hired consultants to check for any environmental hazards that might exist on the property and none was discovered. “We believe this agreement is a good example of how private industry and government
can work together for the common good,” Shwed said. The mayor said a formal ceremony to celebrate the land contribution by growmark will be announced in the future. Growmark FS sells fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and seeds. In business for more than 75 years, Growmark has 39 facilities throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, including sites in Laurel, Milford and Harrington.
Citizen takes Shwed on tour Also during the Monday night meeting, Shwed expressed his appreciation for having met with a Laurel citizen to tour neighborhoods and learn about residents’ concerns. Shwed said he and Public Works Director Woody Vickers met and walked through area neighborhoods with Laurel resident Mary Ann Rivas. Rivas has been very vocal in town council meetings about issues of concern in and around her neighborhood in the Pine Street area. “I spent a delightful couple of hours walking with Ms. Rivas and we had a really good exchange,” Shwed said. “It was good to get out and see what others see that we may not see. I hope to do more of this in the future and encourage other council members as well.”

Lowe’s expected to open mid-summer By Lynn R. Parks The Lowe’s store that is under construction on U.S. 13, Seaford, is expected to open in mid-summer. Karen Cobb, spokeswoman for Lowe’s, said Tuesday that when plans for the new store were announced in May, it was expected that the store would open before the end of the year. “The delay was caused largely by delays in road construction,” Cobb said.
The project is expected to cost about $18.5 million. The store will have about 116,000 square feet of retail sales space as well as a 32,000-square foot garden center. The store is expected to employ about 175 people. In fiscal year 2005, which ended in January 2006, Lowe’s had sales of $43.2 billion. The company is based in Mooresville, N.C.

“It is perfectly within its right to pay less than the prevailing wage,” Brown added. “But we believe that in doing so, Lowe's is violating the public trust.” The irony of the situation, that carpenters are among those who routinely buy supplies from the home supply company, is not lost on Brown. “We support Lowe's in many areas,” in-
cluding through investments of part of the 500,000-member union’s retirement fund, he said. “I’m sure a lot of our members support Lowes on a daily basis,” by buying supplies there. “We are only asking that Lowe's support us in our efforts to try to keep wages and benefits for all contractors working in Delaware at levels so that we can maintain our standard of living.”

ment and this one developer.” Whaley went on to say that SCOLDM feels confident that the town council is not being responsible in allowing the Discovery Project to move forward as it is being proposed. “Instead of taking the responsibility to grow the town in an efficient, steady and creative way as entrusted to you by the people of this town, you have elected to farm that part of your duties out to a third party,” he said. “There is a right way and a wrong way to do these things and we look forward to the court ordering it to be done the right way.” According to Whaley, SCOLDM treasurer, John Brohawn, filed the lawsuit in Chancery Court on behalf of the organization. He said the suit cites eight illegal actions by the council in its actions leading up to annexation of the Discovery property. On its Web site, SCOLDM expresses its opposition to the project, saying among other things that “this development is a junk yard of ideas— it is thrown together with very little thought to the practicality of real life and no thought to its compatibility with the character of the town of Laurel. “There are legal issues which are being looked into. The petitioner for annexation does not own the properties and the Powers of Attorney were not dated and not notarized as required by state law. Additionally, the tax map numbers do not match on the annexation request and the public notices.” These issues were raised at a council meeting in December and town attorney James Waehler said at that time he did not see the cited concerns as “fatal errors” that could halt the annexation. He said issues regarding proper notary support would be corrected in time for the final vote on the annexation and issues about tax map numbers not matching as posted in newspaper public notices was a matter of a typographical error. Waehler said he would investigate and try to determine where the typo may have occurred. However, he added that the public was aware of the location of the Discovery project and the typo is not something that would stop the annexation process. During Monday night’s council meeting, Waehler suggested that council members give their individual reasons for voting in support of the annexation and LPD
zoning as a matter of public record. One by one, the mayor and six of the council members present expressed their reasons for the unanimous vote. Councilwoman Robin Fisher was absent from the meeting. Mayor John Shwed said the reason for her absence was a family emergency. Councilman William Trujillo said he feels annexing the property is in the best interest of the town and is being done in a way that allows the town to grow and manage that growth. Councilman Don Phillips said the annexation is in the best interest of the community and is a further step in bringing business to the US 13 corridor. Councilman Chris Calio said the annexation was recommended by the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission. The land is in the town’s designated growth area, he said, and will be a benefit to the citizens of Laurel. He said that as it stands now, the property will contribute $6,000 a year in real estate property taxes and at full growth has a potential of generating more than $5 million in impact and other service fees. Councilman Randy Lee said he feels the town of Laurel needs to move forward and enlarging and expansion is the way to go. Council president Terry Wright said the annexation is a step in the right direction to add to the town’s growth. She also said the town has been involved in the Discovery annexation process for a year and she has learned a great deal during that process. Wright said that she polled her constituents and about “98 percent” advised her that the council “would be foolish” to pass up on the economic opportunity provided by the Discovery Project. “My heart goes out to all the people who have expressed opposition to this project, but I have had to make decisions based on the facts I have learned through this process,” Wright said. “I believe this to be the right decision and an educated decision.” Mayor Shwed said he would repeat the comments he made during the council’s first reading of the annexation in December. During that meeting he presented a two-page statement outlining his reasons for supporting the Discovery Project and supporting the way in which he and the council proceeded with the annexation process. In his statement, Shwed said he feels

that he and the council have given all parties sufficient time to state their positions and present recommendations and ideas. “I have read all the articles and editorials in the newspapers, letters, petitions and the infamous Internet blogs,” he said. “I have personally discussed this issue with many people, both within and outside the present town boundaries. It is true that Laurel was once a thriving agricultural center and the canning, basket manufacturing and related industries were an integral part of Laurel’s history and development. But, where are they now?” Shwed said as mayor of Laurel he has seen firsthand where the town’s assets suffer from lack of financial resources. He said residents in Laurel have one of the highest tax rates in Sussex County, so raising taxes to gain revenue is “not an attractive option.” “I understand the objections raised by those opposed to the Discovery Project, but as Laurel’s mayor I must consider what is best for the majority of the town’s 3,800 plus citizens,” he said. “I see economic development as the route to break this cycle of insufficient funding and to usher in a new era for the town of Laurel, a new chapter in the proud history of this great community.” Shwed said if the Discovery Project developers have met the legal requirements for annexation and zoning, he believes the town should vote to approve the requests with the conditions noted by the town’s Planning and Zoning Committee. “I believe property owners
Council president Terry Wright said that she polled her constituents and about “98 percent” advised her that the council “would be foolish” to pass up on the economic opportunity provided by the Discovery Project. have the right to do what is legally allowable with their property,” he said. “Conversely, there are those who would like to see open farmland preserved. In my view buying land is an equal opportunity transaction, open to any interested party willing to meet the seller’s price.” Also Monday night, the council voted unanimously to approve the second and final reading of an ordinance that brings the property housing the Car Store on US 13 into the corporate limits of Laurel. This property was considered by the council as a linchpin in the development of the US 13 corridor and its annexation enabled the Discovery property to be contiguous to the town’s limits and eligible for annexation.

Education briefs Identification CDs for kids available through state police With support from the Bank of America, the Delaware State Police becomes the first police department in the nation to offer a Safe Kids Card — a wallet size compact disc identification card that holds emergency and medical information along with photos and fingerprints. The compact disc format allows police and emergency officials to access the information more quickly, thereby speeding up recovery and treatment. “Providing this opportunity for parents to have their child’s information placed on
a CD is a more efficient way to protect and assist them in an emergency,” said Delaware State Police Cpl. Michelle Foraker. The wallet size CDs were custom-made by Wyoming-based My Family CD International for the Delaware program, based on research of past programs and the needs of the community. Safe Kids Cards digital child ID kits will be available while supplies last at various events throughout the area. For details or to order a kit, call the Delaware State Police at 302-834-2620, extensions 232 or 233.

Letters their time and expertise to our students. What began for me as a desperate search for some volunteers has turned into an astonishing network of talented and dedicated individuals who are more than willing to encourage the students of Delaware to work hard in school and succeed in life. These volunteers make the program the success that it is. Many of them participate on their days off or after a work shift has been completed. Each school that we go into has commented on the wide variety of careers that are represented and the dedication of the participants into making a difference and positively influencing the students. Too often, we write about what is wrong. Well, Delaware businesses and individuals are doing something right and they deserve to be commended for it! Robin E. Agar
Soldier thankful for packages I would like to thank all the people who have sent packages for our soldiers deployed to Iraq. I have been humbled by the support, and want to publicly thank all those involved. I would especially like to thank state Rep. Danny Short, Harley Davidson of Seaford, Cathy Van Sciver, VFW 4961, American Legion Post #6, Food Lion, Kiwanis Club, Happy Harry’s, Eckerds, Rite Aid, Blades Elementary School, Western Sussex Boys & Girls Club, Nanticoke Hospital, Caravel Academy, Seaford District Library and Seaford City Hall for their planning, participation, and execution of “Operation Candyman.” The soldiers have really appreciated the support, and on a personal level this has truly been an amazing experience to see all the packages, prayers and thoughts sent by the people of Seaford and Sussex County to soldiers they don’t know, but who want to show support for the sacrifices that the soldiers are making. I am deeply in debt to the generosity of the community, and proud of the fact I grew up in such a great town. Once again, thank you for your continued support. LTC Lee Merritt

Volunteers help Hospice succeed Delaware Hospice benefits year round from hundreds of individuals throughout the state of Delaware who give of themselves and their precious time. Their service means so much to all of us, as well as to our patients and families. At this time, I would like to express a special thank you and applaud everyone who contributed to the huge success of the 2006 Festivals of Trees. Festivals of Trees are held in New Castle, Kent and Sussex Counties every November and December and raise significant funds to support our program and ensure everyone has access to hospice care in Delaware. Our Festival of Trees volunteers are the heart, soul and backbone of these events. Each year, I am amazed at the complexity of the organization and at the magnificence of the exhibits. And each year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for our volunteers who give so much of themselves to bring it all together. As we embark on the journey of providing a new option of hospice care with our future Delaware Hospice Center, we move forward with greater strength of spirit thanks to the presence of these individuals within our organization.

Many happy to talk to students I felt compelled to write this letter to thank businesses and individuals who support the Delaware Business, Industry, Education Alliance (BIE) programs. I have been a part of the BIE Alliance for about 18 months now. I am the program coordinator for the “What in the World?” program in Sussex County. This is a fantastic educational program that exposes students in grades 3 to 12 to careers that use math, science or technology. When I first started as coordinator, one of my main challenges was ensuring enough volunteers to host spectacular programs for the students. I began making phone calls, sending letters and writing emails in a search for community members who were willing to become involved. Though the program is user-friendly, I was doubtful of getting enough volunteers to participate. Although I believe completely in the program’s worth, I just wasn’t sure that businesses would be willing to dedicate the time and personnel. I have been amazed at the generosity of Delawareans. So many are willing to give

Police Journal Suspects sought in robbery Delaware State Police are investigating a robbery that occurred Tuesday, Jan. 2, in the parking lot of Burger King located on U.S. Rt. 13, south of Middleford Road, Seaford. At approximately 11:20 p.m., an 18year-old female employee had just entered her vehicle when she was approached by two black male suspects. The suspects, who were armed with a handgun and wearing ski masks, opened the driver's door and pointed the gun at the victim. The suspects then demanded money and the victim's purse. While the victim was retrieving her purse, one of the suspects struck her two times in the face with the butt of the gun. The suspects then grabbed the victim's purse and fled the area on foot. Later in the evening, Seaford police located the contents of the victim's purse on Pennsylvania Avenue, and later located the purse on Harrington Street. The suspects stole money, a credit card, and several gift cards from the purse. The victim was treated at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital for lacerations above her left eye and to her lip. Besides the ski masks, the suspects were wearing all dark clothing. Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Detective Fred Chambers at 856-5850, ext. 206, or Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.
Motorcycle Crash Closes Route 1 The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit was called to a serious injury crash at the intersection of State Rt. 1 at Fireside Road at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6. Investigators report a 2006 Harley Davidson, operated by James Rash, 57, of the 300 block of Hall Place in Milford, was traveling southbound Rt. 1 approaching Fireside Road. A 1993 Mercury Villager, operated by Valentin Chavez, 26, of the 16000 block of New Road in Lewes, was traveling westbound on Fireside Road approaching Rt. 1. The Mercury Villager crossed the
northbound lanes of Rt. 1 and failed to stop at a stop sign in the median, between Rt. 1 northbound and southbound, as it was attempting to continue westbound on Fireside Road. By not stopping at the stop sign, the Mercury pulled out into the path of the Harley Davidson. The Harley Davidson struck the right side of the Mercury. Rash was seriously injured as a result of this impact suffering a fractured skull, pelvis and elbow. He was taken to Beebe Hospital and will be transported to a hospital in Baltimore, Md. once stabilized. Chavez was charged with Vehicular Assault second as well as several traffic offenses including: Failure to Stop as a Stop Sign, Driving Without a License, and Failure to have Proper Insurance. He was committed to SCI in lieu of $4,500 bail. The roadway was closed down for approximately two hours. It is unknown if Rash was wearing his helmet.
Delaware’s deadly holiday season It was a deadly holiday season on Delaware roadways in spite of an all-out enforcement and public awareness blitz by Office of Highway Safety and law enforcement officials aimed at keeping the public safe. Nineteen people were killed on Delaware roads during the OHS's ninth annual Safe Family Holiday campaign, which ran from Thanksgiving through New Year's Eve. In comparison, twelve people lost their lives in traffic crashes during this time in 2005. Of the 19 traffic deaths, more were attributed to aggressive drivers than impaired drivers. At least 10 of the traffic deaths were related to aggressive driving behaviors including speeding, running red lights, and failure to grant the right of way to other vehicles. Three of the deaths, however, are listed by police reports as being alcohol-related. The three were killed in a single crash in Sussex County two days before Christmas. Eight people were injured in alcoholrelated crashes between Christmas and New Year's Eve alone, bringing the total injured since Thanksgiving to 56. Enforcement activities during the Safe

Family Holiday campaign included sobriety checkpoints, DUI saturation patrols and aggressive driving patrols. As a result, 200 DUI arrests, and another 2,752 for aggressive driving violations were made over the last six weeks. In spite of the increase in traffic deaths over the holiday season, both impaired driving and aggressive driving-related deaths declined overall for the 2006 calendar year.
16-year-old dies in crash The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred Tuesday, Jan. 2, at approximately 8:40 p.m. on State Rt. 5 about one mile north of State Rt. 24. A 1999 Geo Tracker operated by Jeremy J. Mroz, 16, of Millsboro, was traveling north on SR 5 at an apparent high rate of speed. As Mroz was approaching a vehicle traveling in the same direction, he began to pass it. After passing the vehicle and while pulling back into his lane, Mroz lost control of the Tracker and it began rotating clockwise. The Tracker then slid sideways off the east edge of the roadway and struck a utility pole on the driver's side door. Jeremy Mroz, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was trapped in the vehicle and died at the scene. Jeremy Mroz was not a licensed driver and drove his father's vehicle without his knowledge or permission, police said.

Health Five factors to look at when selecting a physician By Dr. Anthony Policastro Every now and then, I like to update an old article. I wrote one about 10 years ago on selecting a physician. With the large number of newcomers to the area, it made sense to provide that information again. Selecting a physician is a difficult task. We trust our physician to keep us from getting sick. When we are sick, we want to get better quickly. There are several factors involved in our decision to select a physician. The biggest factor is geography. The best physician in the world may be in Montana. We are not going to travel there to see him/her. Convenience is an important part of seeking medical care. Eighty-five percent of the population travels to the closest physician. Most of them stay within 10 miles of home. Many of us do not recognize the fact that location is more important than anything else in choosing a physician. A second important factor is available appointments. If a physician is so busy that you cannot get an appointment, it does not help you a lot. Some physicians have closed practices. They are not taking new patients. Others have full appointment books. You might have to wait a few days to be seen when you are ill.
For most minor illnesses this is not a problem from the medical standpoint. However, some people do not want to wait when they are ill. They will choose a physician who will be able to see them quickly. One way to get a feel for this is to call the office in advance of your first appointment. If the physician can see a new patient within a week or two, then you can expect easy access. If the wait for a new appointment is three to four months, it may be difficult to get an appointment when you are ill. A third factor is how comfortable the patient feels with the physician’s manner. Every physician has a different personality. We react to personalities based upon our own personality. Actually 10-20 percent of the population will be unhappy with a physician’s personality. That is a different 10-20 percent for each physician. Therefore, everyone will find physicians with whom they feel comfortable. Another portion of feeling comfortable is how carefully the physician explains what is wrong. The same is true for how carefully the treatment is explained. This is also true for the explanation about medications and their side effects. People have different expectations for these things. They will affect how comfortable an indi-
vidual feels with a physician. I have some patients who just want to get a medication that they have had before. They do not want a lengthy explanation. When I prescribe medicine for ADHD, I always go through a prolonged explanation of what the condition is at the biochemical level. I always cover the major side effects of the medication. I do it the same way every time. Some patients may not want that detail. However, I later know exactly what I told them. The same thing is true for asthma medication. Different medications work on different parts of the illness. I find it important to first explain what the illness involves. Then I can make clear how the medications actually work. Waiting time in the office is the fourth factor. Each physician has a different pace. Some have unexpected interruptions from the hospital and other patients. Therefore, waiting time in the office frequently varies by physician. Patients usually decide what wait they find acceptable based upon the other items above. The amount of time each individual decides is acceptable varies. Some people have no trouble waiting 30 minutes. Others find a 5-minute wait unacceptable. This is a very person specific factor. I tend to make sure all the parent’s
questions are answered. That means I am usually behind in my appointments. However, once you are in the office, you get the same amount of attention. There is a tradeoff. You might have to wait longer. However, you know that you will get a chance to ask your questions once you get into the office. Some people would prefer to wait less. Others would prefer the longer wait with the increased time in the office. It is a personal thing. The fifth factor is related to what friends and neighbors say about the physician. Some physicians are more popular than others. We need to remember that much of this is based upon how comfortable those people feel with a physician. In some instances we may not feel the same way about the physician when we see him/her. However, this factor is an important one in the selection process. The bottom line is that there are many factors that enter into a decision to select a physician. Most of those are related to personal preferences. A good fit between the patient’s expectations and the physician’s style is important. Dr. Anthony Policastro is medical director at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.

People Delaware’s Red Hat Society members enjoy fun all year long “The Red Hat Society in Sussex County has had a fantastic year,” said B.J. Young, who is the Royal Queen Mother of the Crowned Jewels of Sussex, a Red Hat Society chapter in Sussex County. Young is also the moderator of the Delaware RHS members’ Web site. “Our personal calendars were just chuck full of wonderful events,” she added. Activities have included Christmas parties, Halloween parties, fashion shows, teas, boardwalk strolls, a Red Hat trip to Italy, pajama breakfasts, parades, the yearly crossing to Cape May, theater parties, events at the Three Little Bakers and bingo parties. “And no one who
participated could forget Lewes’ 375th birthday celebration called Red Hats in Lewes,” Young said. Club activities have also included “reductions,” honoring members who turn 50, and “coronations” of club leaders, or “queens.” Young said that the Delaware Red Hat Society members’ communication network has continued to grow through 2006. She added that many events are planned for 2007, including a pajama breakfast to celebrate Red Hat Day , a sweetheart lunch, a Red Hat Cookbook tea and signings, parties and get-togethers. Sussex County Red Hatters
are also invited to Wilmington for Hare’s High Tea at the Three Little Bakers, hosted by a Newark chapter. “I believe that newspapers, the Internet and our Web site, which was founded in March, are all really helping Red Hatters to interconnect throughout Delaware and the surrounding States,” Young said. The Web site address is Delaware RHSMembers@yahoogroups. com. For information, call Young at 945-1936. She is also available through e-mail, email@example.com.

CHURCH BULLETINS Seaford Mission provides hope The Mission has a success rate of 65 percent which is comparable with the best and most costly addiction treatment programs By Robert Marx First in a series Seaford Mission has asked me to do a series of articles on the work, and the miracles that take place there on a daily basis. The Mission provides not only food and shelter, but many other services aimed at rescuing their residents from addiction, and giving them the skills necessary to live independently. First some background information on drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Researching these programs on the Internet was a highly rewarding experience. Just plug “drug and alcohol rehab programs” into your internet search engine, and great news, apparently everyone has the answer to the problem of substance addiction! The treatment program success rates touted are in the 65 to 75 percent range. Of course, this is contrasted with so-called “traditional” programs (such as Alcoholics Anonymous), where the success rates are a dismal 20 to 30 percent. The websites visited tell us that addic-
tion is a psychological problem, or it is not a psychological problem. They also tell us that it is or is not a laundry list of problems such as nutrition, morals, disease, emotions, holistic balance, self-control, self-esteem, and so on. The one point of agreement seems to be that addiction to drugs and alcohol is a problem. You get a sense that the purpose of all these slick websites with their scholarly research is to get your money, and especially the money from your insurance company. That’s great if you have money, insurance, financial resources, a house and a career. What if you don’t? What if you have been court ordered to get into a drug treatment program or go to jail! You are 18 years old; you have no money, no job, and no place to live? What if you end up at Seaford Mission? What can you expect? The Mission does not have any of the advantages of the well funded, “for profit” programs with their large fully paid staffs, and paying patients. Yet the Mission has a success rate of 65 percent which is comparable with the best and most costly addiction treatment programs. How do they do it while being non-profit, being staffed by mostly unpaid volunteers, and having the large part of funding from charitable sources? In the coming weeks we will try to answer that question. We will explore together what that experience at Seaford Mission is like through the eyes and ears of an ac-
tual resident, from day one through graduation. We will also see the experience from the point of view of administrators, teachers, mentors, pastors, and board members. We will examine some success stories and some failures. We will explore the history and the vision for the future of the Mission. We will also provide news from the Mission and week to week needs of the Mission. Hopefully someone out there can help with a specific item, and some thanks will be in order for prayers answered. News, needs and thanks: This is the time of year when many companies start their charitable giving programs. If anyone out there works for a company that has a charitable giving or grant program, please let us hear from you so we can apply for help. We need the company name, address, telephone number and the contact person. You can e-mail the information to MissionNews@Hughes.Net, or mail it to Seaford Mission, PO Box 1271, Seaford, DE 19973, or call the Mission at 6292559. The Mission received a generous donation from a local resident just before Christmas. We thank you and hope that you have a wonderful New Year. The Mission appreciates all the financial help received in the past year, and all your prayers. Next week: History of the Mission, a founder profile, plus news, needs, and thanks.

OBITUARIES William I. Smoot, 91 William I. "Bill" Smoot of Dunedin, Fla., died Sunday, Dec. 3, 2006. He was born in Seaford, a son of Irvin F. Smoot and Bessie Wilson Smoot on Sept. 30, 1915.

The Answer is in the Bible Why should I believe the Bible? A book that is actually comprised of 66 different books written by 40 different authors who lived in widely separated parts of the world, who spoke different languages and who wrote at periods more than 1500 years apart, yet without contradiction is at the very least, worthy of our notice. Its fulfilled prophecies, scientific foreknowledge, as well as unparalleled moral teachings make this book hard to ignore or just pass off as the figment of someone’s imagination. The Bible’s revealing of where man came from, what he is here for, and where he is going also makes the Bible a book worthy of our study. Surely the creation itself would cry out for a designer, that designer being God, and the Bible being His word. Since it is His word, surely we should listen to what God has to say. The linchpin of the veracity of God’s word however, is found in the resurrection of Christ. In speaking to a group of people in the city of Athens who had no knowledge of Jehovah God, the apostle Paul said, “because He (God) has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31) Let me put it this way, if Jesus was raised from the dead, then you should believe the Bible, if not, then you shouldn’t. Since the evidence points, beyond a shadow of a doubt, to the fact that Jesus was resurrected, then the credibility of the Bible has been established. That which is at the root of so much skepticism concerning the Bible is a general unwillingness on the part of many to subject their lives to God. Belief or unbelief in the truth of the Bible is morally, rather than intellectually rooted. The Bible doesn’t set out to prove the existence of God or the truth of His word, that is a given. Why should I believe the Bible? Listen to the apostle Peter’s words in response to Jesus’ asking of His disciples if they (like others) wanted to leave Him. Peter replied, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life”. (John 6:68) What other book deals so effectively with who God is, the origin of man, and especially the issues of man’s sin and his ability to possess life after death? It is the Bible which answers these basic questions and for this reason we should not only believe it, but surrender our lives to its divine and timeless message.

Entertainment Dinner and Show intermingle at Possum Point Players Season 2007 at Possum Point Players opens Jan. 19 with their first ever showing of the Neil Simon comedy "The Dinner Party," as a dinner-theatre production. The dinner menu is inspired by the theme of the play, which is set in a restaurant in Paris. "We are going for a 'French' menu since the show takes place in a French restaurant," explained Louise Hartzell of Georgetown, one of the founding members of Possums and the one who coordinates the "dinner" part of the group's annual dinner-theatre. Patrons arriving at Possum Hall for the annual dinner-theatre production (Doors open at 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and noon on Sundays) may get cocktails at the bar before dinner is served at 6:30 for the evening performances, or 12:30 for the Sunday matinees. The dinner is cooked on-site and served by Possum volunteers. This year's menu consists of French Onion Soup, green salad, Chicken Parisienne, French green beans amondine, wild rice, rolls, coffee and tea. There will also be a dessert, but that has not yet been determined. "Dinner Party" will follow the dinner with a cast including Cat Baker of
Georgetown, and John Marino of Lewes, set opposite each other as they were in the PPP 2006 production of "All My Sons." Don Megee of Lewes will debut with PPP as Albert opposite Cassandra Petersen of Milton as Yvonne.. Jim Killion of Lewes returns to the Possum stage as Andre, who is constantly at odds with Gabrielle, portrayed by Susannah Griffin of Lewes. Neil Simon's "The Dinner Party" is a widely acclaimed play, and a fitting theme for Possums' annual dinner-theatre. For their dinner-theatre, Possum Hall is converted to an elegant dining hall from the glass-front of the atrium to the "green room" with the art gallery, to the balcony seating. Possums' dinner-theater productions are widely popular, and reservations are filling up quickly. "After returning from the holidays we always have a rush of ticket orders," said executive administrator Mary Cahill, "People love to have dinner and entertainment all together, and we're already close to full houses." Tickets for "The Dinner Party" are now on sale by calling the Possum Ticketline at 302-856-4560. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 19, 20, 26 and 27, and at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 21 and 28.

✳ JANUARY 11 - 17, 2007
If a cold strikes, be ready with lots of chicken soup It’s impossible to pick up a newspaper or magazine at the start of this brand new year without reading about how to “eat healthy.” The topic of good health has replaced the time-honored New Year topic of how to lose weight. The Food Network is one of the many taking up the topic of winter well being. Tips include: eat fruits and veggies. Beta carotene, an antioxidant found in yellow and orange produce like winter squash, carrots and mangoes, helps our bodies repel infection-causing germs. Include a daily dose of raw garlic in your diet to boost immunity. Crush and swallow it like a vitamin pill, or chop it and add it to salad dressing. If you’re not up to that, remember that cooked garlic has benefits too. Eat yogurt for a daily dose of probiotics, good bacteria that guard against gastrointestinal infections. Get at least eight hours sleep. A good sleep increases your resistance to colds and flu. Keep exercising. Physically active people catch fewer colds. And if a cold or flu gets past your immune system, eat homemade chicken soup. Studies show that “grandma’s penicillin” eases cold symptoms by thinning nasal secretions and clearing congestion. If you’re interested in staying well this winter, do make your own chicken stock. Make a lot and freeze it in quart quantities. Pop in the microwave to defrost as needed. Chicken Stock Makes 2 to 2 1/2 quarts 5 to 6 pounds chicken wings, backs, necks 1 large yellow onion, quartered 2 medium-size stalks celery, quartered with celery leaves 2 medium-size carrots, quartered 6 sprigs parsley 2 bay leaves 12 black peppercorns 1 teaspoon each dried rosemary and thyme, crumbled (optional) 2 cloves garlic 3 quarts water In a large stockpot, combine the chicken parts, onion, celery, carrots, parsley, bay leaves, peppercorns, rosemary, thyme, garlic and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat and partially cover. Cook at a barely bubbling simmer for at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours, occasionally skimming off any scum that collects on the surface. When the stock has finished simmering, set aside to cool. Strain the liquid through a sieve or cheesecloth-lined colander into a large heatproof bowl. Let cool slightly, cover and refrigerate, Discard the vegetables and other solids. Refrigerate the stock until chilled, then skim off the fat. The stock will keep refrigerated in a lightly covered container for up to 3 days. Gourmet magazine Super Quick Minestrone Makes 8 to 10 servings. This soup is from Michael Chiarello. The recipe calls for pancetta, unsmoked Italian bacon. Pancetta is becoming easier to find locally, but you may substitute bacon that has been boiled few minutes and rinsed in cold water to lessen the smoky flavor. 1 cup (4 ounces) tubetti pasta, or other small pasta shape
The Practical Gourmet Extra virgin olive oil 6 cups chicken stock 1/4 pound pancetta, cut into 3 pieces 6 medium garlic cloves, each cut in half lengthwise 2 cups finely chopped yellow onions 1 cup small-diced celery 1 cup small-diced carrots 1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary or thyme leaves 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes 4 cups small-diced zucchini 2 cups small-diced, peeled russet potatoes Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and transfer to a baking sheet. Toss with a little olive oil to prevent sticking. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the chicken stock. In another large saucepan over high heat, heat 1/4 cup oil. When the oil is hot but not smoking add the pancetta and cook until it begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally. Add the garlic and cook until it begins to brown, about 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat to medium and add the onions, celery and carrots. Cook until the vegetables are soft, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent browning. Add the chopped herbs. Raise the heat to high. Add the beans, tomatoes, zucchini and potatoes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Then bring it down to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes, skimming any foam off the top of the soup. Season generously with pepper. Add salt, to taste. Just a few minutes before serving, add the cooked tubetti pasta. Serve warm with Parmesan and olive oil passed at the table.

Laurel High wrestling team defeats Indian River, Milford By Mike McClure The Laurel varsity wrestling team picked up wins over Indian River and Milford last week to move to 3-1 in dual meet competitions this season. The wins came after a rough loss to Smyrna prior to the Christmas break in which the Eagles won every match. “During the Christmas break we went back to the basics,” Laurel head coach Craig Blount said after the Indian River match. “It was the things we were missing, just the little things.” On Wednesday, things did not start out well for the Bulldogs as senior Brett Shockley (125) lost to Indian River’s Mike Magaha by injury default. Magaha, who moved up from 119, got the win in the opening match after Shockley aggravated an injured finger during the match. Laurel’s Aaron Givens (130) defeated Daniel Cervantes by major decision (154), but IR’s Sean Cummings (135) edged Chris Cutsail, 10-6. Laurel’s Matt Parker (140) added a pin at 2:37 to give the Bulldogs a brief lead at 10-9. The Indians’ Luke Saylor answered with a second period pin of Mike Newton in the 145 pound weight class. Laurel’s Josh Kosiorowski (152) trailed IR’s Bo Wilkinson, 2-1, after one period before rallying to take a 5-2 lead after two periods and holding on to win, 7-3. Indian River extended its lead when Dominique Morris (160) pinned Laurel’s Josh Rubino in the first period to make the score 21-13. Antwon Trimball (171), the Bulldogs’ other senior, recorded a pin at 3:23 to move Laurel within two (2119).

In what turned out to be one of the pivotal matches of the night, Tony Rubino (189) picked up a point in the second period for the first points of the night in his match against the Indians’ Josh Hitchens. Rubino led, 2-0, in the final period before Hitchens picked up a pair of points with 28 seconds left. Rubino was able to score a takedown with four seconds left for the 4-2 victory and a 22-21 Laurel lead. “I just thank God for it (the win). I tried my hardest,” said Rubino. “Down at the end I was trying to hold on and trying to work a move.” Continued on page 44

Bartee held a 2-0 advantage after the first period, however, Rector scored six points in the final period to win, 6-2. Bartee was on his back for a long period of time in the third but was able to avoid being pinned to keep the score at 30-22. â€œDavid will always give it his all. That was important, not getting pinned and giving up three more points,â€? Blount said. Laurelâ€™s Chase Gordy (103) won by forfeit (30-28) to set up a showdown in the final two matches. Marco Hernandez (112) pinned his opponents with 12 seconds left in the first period to give the Bulldogs a 34-30 lead.

Moore said. â€œI just had to go out and wrestle like I know how to.â€? â€œWhen they win they start feeding off each other. We are in very, very good shape. Iâ€™d be very disappointed if we were close and lost,â€? said Blount. â€œAfter everybody starts winning they believe in themselves. The hard part about coaching is getting them focused and keeping them that way.â€? According to Blount, Hernandez and

Delmar Sports Scene By Tommy Young Next week the Delmar High School sports teams will see their first full week of activity this season as the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams and the wrestling team each are scheduled for two contests apiece for the first time in 2007. So far the boys’ basketball team is playing .500 ball after dropping a 64-56 decision to Indian River in their first game of this new year and after a couple of wins and a loss in the Lion’s Club tournament in Salisbury over the holidays. They have two games at home this week against Laurel on Tuesday night and Cape Henlopen on Friday evening. Meanwhile, the girls’ first game of the New Year was canceled because of a mix up in the schedule; Indian River had scheduled two games on the same night and decided to play the other team. Delmar then scheduled a game with Charter School out of Salisbury, but that was canceled because the girls from Salisbury had a dance scheduled that night and decided to go to that instead of playing basketball. So, the Delmar girls should be well rested for the two games away this week with Laurel Tuesday night and Cape Henlopen Friday evening. Here is hoping that the rest of the games will be played on schedule. As for the wrestling team, they got their opening match of 2007 at Woodbridge last Wednesday evening and won 76-6 as Woodbridge is just reviving the sport and are in for a long season as wrestling is not a sport you cannot just jump back into, but you have to admire the coach and this team for the effort they are putting forth. Just to prove my point, two veteran teams went at it Friday night, and Delmar, which had scored 76 points on Wednesday night, could only manage 18 on Friday evening and went down to a 50-18 defeat as they did not win a match until the 171 pound class when Shawn Wilkerson, wrestling in his first varsity match of the season, pinned his opponent. Then, Justin Thomas kept his undefeated record in tact by winning his 189pound match. To everyone’s surprise, Donald Poole at 215 lost his first match of the season. However, to no one’s surprise, the Wildcats’ undefeated heavyweight Darren Collins pinned his opponent in the second period. In the Wood-
bridge match, he had the quickest pin of the match as it only took him 14 seconds to pin his opponent. This week both of their matches are away as they travel up to Laurel on Wednesday evening and go over to Cape Henlopen on Friday night. ASSISTS AND ERRORS- I enjoy watching almost every high school and college sport, some more than others, like the football bowl games during the holiday season mostly because you see the best teams in the country participating. Of course, it was a lot more enjoyable when there were only four major bowls- the Orange, Cotton, Sugar, and Rose. But as usual, big money came on the scene, and at last count there were nearly 20 bowl games, and by the time you get to the major bowl games, you are about bowed out, and unless you are rooting for one of the teams in the later games, the interest just isn’t there. In fact, if one of the programs you regularly watch is on, you might watch it instead of the football game. I’ll admit that happened to me mainly because I had not seen Oklahoma or Boise State play this year, and as Oklahoma was a heavy favorite, I did not think it would be much of a game, but curiosity got the best of me, and I checked on the game in the second quarter and saw that Boise State was holding its own against their favored opponent. The second thing that convinced me to watch the rest of the game was they were wearing the best-looking football uniforms I had ever seen. Boy, am I glad I did because I witnessed the most exciting game of the whole season which as you well know was won in overtime by Boise State mainly on two of the oldest trick plays in the game, the hook and ladder and the Statue of Liberty play. What made them so unique was they put a little different spin on them that made them a thing of beauty and every sports program must have felt the same way because they were shown over and over all night long. And what was the crowning blow was the Boise State coach going for two points to win instead of one point to tie. Besides the color of the uniforms, as long as this gutsy coach stays there, I will be rooting for them for a long time.

Chester Davis earns 400th career win as girls’ coach
A view from the cheap seats By Mike McClure, Star Sports Editor
By Mike McClure Seaford Christian girls’ basketball coach Chester Davis reached a milestone with his team’s 32-8 win over Open Bible Christian. Davis, who has also coached at Laurel, Seaford, and Epworth Christian, netted his 400th career win with the victory. “It’s great. When you start you wonder how long you’re going to stay in it, if it’s really what you want to do,” said Davis, who has been coaching girls’ basketball for 34 seasons. Davis started coaching girls’ basketball at Laurel High in 1971 and had a record of 153-78 before moving north to Seaford. He sported a 98-39 mark at Seaford (1978-93) and then moved back to Laurel as the school’s athletic director. Chester coached the Bulldogs to a 3731 record in his final three years at the school and then went down the road to Epworth Christian to serve as the school’s athletic director and girls’ basketball coach. The Lions went 91-26 under Davis, but the high school closed in 2005 to serve as a feeder school for Delmarva Christian. FLYING HIGH WITH THE EAGLES- Davis is now in his second season

at the helm for the Eagles. The girls’ program had three wins the year before Chester took over as coach and had 13 wins last year. The win on Monday upped Seaford Christian’s record to 8-1 this year. “We had to do a lot of work on fundamentals last year. The kids have embraced our philosophy,” Davis said. “The only real pressure really I put on myself to win. If we don’t win, life goes on. It’s just a great atmosphere in which to coach.” SMOOTH TRANSITION- Having assistant coaches John Street, Justin Davis (his son), and James Gschwandtner join him from Epworth helped make for a smooth transition for Davis when he moved to Seaford Christian.
All of the Western Sussex sports teams got back into action last week with a couple of local teams earning upset wins. The defending Henlopen South champion Woodbridge boys’ basketball team handed Smyrna its second conference loss and first defeat against a Henlopen South team last Thursday night. The Seaford girls’ basketball team earned its first win of the season in its first conference game by beating a pretty good Lake Forest team which includes Henlopen Conference scoring leader Herbie Rayne (Smyrna’s Darnell Cephas was the boys’ leading scorer entering this week). In wrestling, Laurel won the last two matches (112 and 119 pounds) to defeat Indian River at home last Wednesday in a local Henlopen South battle. That win followed Seaford’s first win over Milford in over 20 years before the break. (The Laurel boys also knocked off IR at home prior to the holidays and the Laurel wrestling team also topped Milford over the weekend). GOING SOUTH- Laurel graduate Shawn Phillips has been invited to work out for the Philadelphia Phillies’ front office personnel in Clearwater, Fla. at the end of the month. Our resident “Phillie Phanatic” Pat Murphy would love to see Shawn playing for the Phils. Delmar senior wrestler and football player Darren Collins is also heading south following his graduation. Newberry College (Newberry, S.C.) announced on its website last month that Collins is one of its 14 wrestling recruits for the 07-08 season. The Star will have more on both stories in future editions. BRING IN THE CAMERAS- ESPN recently signed an agreement to cover all Little League baseball and softball World Series championship games including the Senior League Softball World Series in Roxana starting this summer. Last year Nanticoke (Seaford) placed second in the World as the District III representative in the World Series. Laurel represented the
district the previous two years including the first year the district hosted the World Series. I’m not sure where they’re going to put ESPN’s cameras given the lack of space for the local photographers and writers who have been covering the entire event for the past three years. Last year photographers had to take turns entering the teams’ dugouts to take pictures of the games. The other choice is shooting pictures from high above the fields, which is not an option for me since I don’t do heights. CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP AND A SODA ON THE SIDE- If there was any doubt that I’m getting old, there certainly isn’t anymore. I was out at the Salisbury Lions Club basketball tournament over the Holidays when I noticed the loud hip hop music emulating from speakers on the floor level near the court. Back when I was in high school I would have loved the idea of loud rap music playing at a basketball game, especially during warmups. And then I got old. It wasn’t so much the type of music that was playing, although my L.L. Cool J and Run DMC tapes (yes, tapes not CDs) have not been seen since I was in college. The problem is the music was loud and lousy. Now I sound like my dad. One song that played which I can’t seem to get out of my head (much to my chagrin) had the lyrics “Chicken noodle soup and a soda on the side” sung over and over. That’s not a song, it’s lunch. QUICK HITS- Seaford Christian girls’ basketball coach Chester Davis, a past Epworth Christian, Seaford, and Laurel coach, entered Monday’s game needing one more win to reach 400 career wins (see story). Seaford grad Vince Evans became the second local grad coaching basketball at Sussex Central when he took over as the boys’ team’s new coach. Woodbridge graduate Ron Dukes is the coach of the girls’ team.

Seaford Christian girls’ basketball coach Chester Davis celebrates with his team following his 400th career win on Monday night. Photo by David Elliott
Davis continued Street was at Epworth when Davis arrived, Justin coached the JV team for two years at Laurel and joined his father at Epworth and Seaford Christian, and James was a student at Epworth Christian when Davis first arrived and later helped out following graduation. FIRST JOB- Chester graduated from Wicomico High School in Salisbury and Salisbury Teacher’s College (now Salisbury University). One of his classmates at Wicomico was Wicomico boys’ basketball coach Butch Waller, who has over 500 career wins and is retiring at the end of this season. After college Davis taught at North Salisbury for six years. He applied for various coaching positions but was bypassed. Finally, Laurel High prinicipal Lloyd Harrington, who got Davis interested in teaching, hired him as the school’s boys’ basketball coach. Things did not exactly go well in Chester’s first attempt at coaching, but eventually he found his calling as a girls’ coach. After sitting out a year as a coach, Davis coached the Laurel Middle School girls’ basketball team and went 11-1. The following year he became the varsity girls’ basketball coach and the rest, as they say, is history. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS- Davis won a pair of Henlopen Conference titles in the early ’90’s as the Seaford girls’ basketball coach. One season the Blue Jays won over 20 games and defeated Laurel in the championship (Chester lived
in Laurel at the time). Davis recalls one game when Seaford and Indian River faced each other with each team sporting a 7-0 record. With his starting point guard down with an injured ankle, Davis turned to a pair of freshmen. His team ended up pulling the game out in the final 30 seconds. But for Davis coaching is about more than just winning, it’s about teaching. THE JOY OF COACHING- “You get to see a youngster develop and really improve their game through hard work. The hardest part is convincing them they can improve through hard work,” Davis said of coaching. “Girls are especially fun to coach because they want to learn the game. The guys already know the game or think they do.” At 66 years young, Davis still enjoys the game. He picked up his 300th win while at Epworth, and like that experience, he found reaching 400 wins fun because of the reaction of his players. “The big enjoyment was looking at the kids’ faces when the buzzer went off last night,” said Davis. THANK YOU- Davis is thankful for the support of his family, including wife, Susan, and daughter, Stacie, who arranged for his relatives to be on hand for his special night. Both are involved with his players throughout the season. “They’ve been very supportive for what the old man likes to do. They’re a major part of where I am,” Davis said. While he is no hurry to end his coaching career, Chester would like to see his son, Justin, take the reigns some day.

Long-time friendship Doing the Towns Together flourishes through mail LAUREL AND DELMAR SOCIALS Sarah Marie Trivits . 875-3672
One of the joys of being associated with a newspaper in a variety of capacities through the years is that you make friends with folks you have never, and probably will never, meet. One of these special people is James I. Elliott, son of the late Dr. J. Roscoe Elliott, and brother of the late Dr. Joseph A. Elliott. James I. Elliott, now 85, grew up in Laurel and often shares memories of the “old days of Laurel” with me by mail. Known to friends and family as Jim, he was affiliated with the National Weather Bureau for years and years. His interest in his hometown has never wavered in all the years he has lived on Maryland’s western shore. Jim now resides in Chesapeake Beach, Md., with his son and daughter-inlaw. Dr. J. Roscoe Elliott practiced medicine here in Laurel at a time when Peninsula Regional Medical Center was a small hospital and Nanticoke Memorial Hospital was not even a dream in the minds of the founding fathers. Patients of Dr. Elliott would be forced to drive to Milford Memorial Hospital for surgeries or the delivery of babies. Actually many babies were delivered at home in those days. When “young Dr. Elliott,” better known as Dr. Joe, began his practice in Laurel, World War II was over, the plans for Nanticoke Memorial Hospital were on the drawing board, and there were other medical doctors in Laurel. The world of medicine was rapidly changing. In his latest letter, Jim Elliott commented on his late aunt, Addie K. Elliott. Miss Addie, as everyone called her, was the organist for Christ Methodist Protestant Church, now known as Christ United Methodist Church. According to Jim, she asked him if he would like to learn how to play the pipe organ at the church. Giving her an affirmative reply, he began going straight to church to practice instead of going home from school each day. Jim stated that some people complained to Aunt Addie that music other than church music was heard. As a result, she told him not to play the organ anymore. “Thus, my budding career as a church organist was over,” Jim wrote. “Aunt Addie also told me that if a hymn was in four sharps, she would

I’m surrounded. There are digital cameras everywhere since Christmas! I’ve had my picture taken with my mouth open, my hair standing on end and sleeping in a chair, but no flattering poses. I feel I’m standing here, back in the 1930s with a black, Kodak box camera. Well, life goes on, with or without a camera, digital or otherwise.
Moments with Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton change it to three flats because it was easier to play, and that the choir would never know the difference.” Anyone who plays any musical instrument knows this is true. Most musicians would rather play flats than sharps. Jim’s letter arrived at our home in midDecember, just before the musical cantata presented by Christ U.M.C.’s choir, and I could readily relate to the flats vs. sharps thoughts. Particularly when some of the numbers in the cantata had five sharps and six flats. Jim Elliott’s eyesight is no longer as clear as it once was, but his memory is crisp and clear when it comes to the bygone days of Laurel. And, his pride in being a part of an earlier Laurel is strong. Along these same lines, Chuck had a mini-reunion during Christmas with another well-known Laurelite from that same generation. Becky Ellis Warrington is a resident of the Methodist Manor House in Seaford. This Laurel native, who lived on Brooklyn Avenue for many years, is a retired DuPonter and worked with Chuck in the employment office at “the plant” in Seaford for years. As they visited together, they spent busy minutes together talking, laughing, recalling great times shared. Becky, according to Chuck, is doing very well now. Many readers will remember her brothers, Loren, Jim, Bob and Roland. The Elliott and Ellis families were very much a part of Laurel for years and years. Readers who know Becky may contact her at the Manor House. And if anyone would like to contact Jim Elliott, please call me. I will be only too happy to give you his address or telephone number. These are but two of the folks who helped build Laurel. Folks who contributed so much and have a zillion happy memories of bygone days.
On Dec. 28, Mabel Williams was hosted to a surprise party in honor of her 89th year. The party was given by her son, Jennings, and his wife, Ruby, at their home on County Seat Highway. Attending were 20 fine family members representing five generations. I’m told, too, that this was the first large party Mrs. Williams ever had held in her honor and she truly was very, very surprised. May she have many more like this one. Returning home recently were Janet and Derby Walker, who celebrated the holidays in Guatemala City with their daughter, Karla, her husband, Luis, and their two granddaughters, Nicole and Samantha Gomez. The Laurel Garden Club members will hold their holiday “bash” on Jan. 14 at the home of Connie Whaley. It will be a covered-dish supper and gift exchange and plans for programs will be discussed. The Laurel New Century Club held its first meeting of the year on Jan. 2 at the Bonanza Restaurant in Delmar. They had a most interesting guest speaker, Gianni DeVincent Hayes, a published author of 14 books of various topics. Gianni has a degree in chemistry and bio-chemistry and a PhD in humanities. She is also an educator and a great speaker. Any woman who would like to know more about this club is welcome to join members for lunch on any first Tuesday of the month. Call president, Dianne Thompson, 875-5126, for more information. I received this bit of news from my friend, Christine Halling: “I guess, like many of our readers, the Halling family, too, had a house full of company during the holidays.” Son, Thomas, with friend, Wendy, and the grandchildren arrived early from “up north” in Wilmington.

Kim and John Trivits celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary on Dec. 29, traveling with a group of friends to The Winery at La Grange in Haymarket, Va. Their guests were Dave and Dale Oddo, Glen and Sally Bradshaw, and Darrell and Charlene Meade (and Mom). It was such a beautiful day that lunch was served outside on the flagstone terrace, under a cloudless sky, with a view of the majestic Massanutten mountains in the distance, and believe me, the Christmas cameras were kept really busy. They departed that area about 3 p.m., heading for Maryland where they met Kim’s relatives from Glen Burnie, Betty Bragg and Don and Cheryl Dwyer, who joined them for dinner on the water at the Chart House in Annapolis. It was a memorable way to celebrate an anniversary. Get well wishes to Bill Phillips, Lorraine Bozman, Ann Adkins and David Morris, from their friends in Delmar. Friends of the Laurel Library will meet in the community room of the library on Jan.16 at 3 p.m. The group welcomes anyone and appreciates suggestions. We have some birthdays that were lost in the shuffle during the holidays: With love and best wishes from the Justice family to Geraldine Carter, Jan. 1, Keith Ruark on Jan 2, Patty Justice on Jan 3, and remembering Janet Hitchens who would have celebrated hers this month. Happy January birthday wishes to: Gerda Naveira and Delores Jones, Jan. 11; June Elias and Robert Thompson, Jan. 12; William Stacey, Jan. 13; Ralph Joseph Sr., Richard Meding, Pat Sheets and Violet Walls, Jan. 14; Charlene Dubinski, Jan. 15; Mary Cutler, Preston Conaway and Lauretta Thompson, Jan. 16.

The town council chamber was full for the council’s vote on annexation of the Discovery property and as expected, the annexation passed. One interesting item that chief of the fire department Mark Sheridan explained was the proposed expansion of the Laurel Fire Department. Mark told of how increasingly difficult it is to get across Dual 13 with the increased traffic, and I think on that we can all agree. In the near future, I probably will have comments on the Discovery issue, Laurel’s biggest issue in my time. But for now, at least, the stories will suffice and there will be no “rest of the story.” Paul Viehman is back on the job at Bargain Bill’s Flea Market after a serious bout with the flu. I say serious only because the doctor told him to keep quiet and not to talk for a few days. Little did the doctor know this would make his condition worse, but Paul was his usual self Saturday morning, entertaining about eight or nine of us at our usual spot at Bargain Bill’s. About halfway through one of his tall stories, the lights in the restaurant blinked momentarily. “And that’s only a warning!” said Paul Davis, quick as a flash to an off-guard Viehman. Art Linkletter was right. People are indeed funny.

Opinion Concern over prevailing thoughts
Guest Feature Protect pets from winter hazards Your dog may have a fur coat but that doesn’t mean it’s immune to freezing temperatures and winter winds. House pets should only be left out in the cold for short periods, says Dr. David Marshall, a veterinarian with University of Delaware Cooperative Extension. “Be even more careful if your pet is young, old or sick because it will have a decreased ability to retain body heat in cold weather,” says Marshall. Wind, rain or snow, combined with cold, is particularly dangerous. “Wind and wetness draw heat from your pet’s body, so it will be able to tolerate even less time outside when these conditions exist,” says Marshall. Doggy jackets and sweaters may look cute, but Marshall says they don’t offer very much protection. And keep in mind that even cold weather breeds like St. Bernards shouldn’t be out in the cold for extended periods. “If they have been bred and raised here in Delaware their fur coats probably aren’t thick enough for freezing temperatures,” notes Marshall. If you have a dog who lives outside year-round, be sure that its dog house is dry and draft-free. A floor that is raised a few inches off the frozen ground will stay warmer. Cover the floor with straw or wood shavings to provide extra comfort. Also, position the entrance to the house away from the wind and cover the entrance with burlap. “Because they need a lot of energy to keep warm, outdoor pets should be fed more in the winter,” says Marshall. “The water bowl also should be checked frequently to make sure the water isn’t frozen.” Cats should stay indoors in the winter. “A cat out in the cold may decide to get warm in dangerous places, such as next to the engine block of a car or truck that has recently been running,” notes Marshall. Get in the habit of banging on the hood of your car before starting it, to scare off a household or neighborhood cat that may be hiding underneath. Salt, snow and ice can irritate a dog’s toes and paw pads. Keep your dog’s paws in good condition by washing them with warm water and drying them thoroughly after each exposure to salt, snow or ice. “Most dogs won’t tolerate booties, but try to get your dog to wear them,” says Marshall. “They offer a lot of protection.” Don’t forget that antifreeze is toxic to dogs and cats, so store it in a place that your pet can’t access. Keep your garage and driveway free of spills and leaks.

I had a conversation the other day with a person I respect, but what he told me causes me concern. He commented about my column of December 21 in which I said I could not support a candidate, Republican or Democrat, who was not interested in protecting the lives of the pre-born. In that column I referred to comments from Judson Bennett, who criticized my position. “There are many who feel the way you do, however you are in the minority. The Pro Life vs Pro Choice Issue is not paramount in the minds of the average American voters,” Judson said. Now I have had many more people say they support my position than oppose it. But I was troubled by the comments of this one individual, who said he agreed more with Judson Bennett. That was bad enough, but what I understood him to say next was that many of those aborted babies would be brought into a world in which they would not be cared for and with little promise of becoming productive members of society. I know there are many ills in society today, but the destruction of the unborn does not appeal to me as being the best solution. What message does this send to our young people? Since our government does not place a high value on human life, maybe that’s part of the reason why there is so much violence in our society today. Maybe when you are living in the middle of an injustice it is more difficult to understand it. At one time the majority of Americans accepted slavery as a necessity. At one time (say the 1930s and 1940s) the people in Germany were perhaps more concerned with the economy than other issues. We can look back now and see just how wrong it was not to challenge those injustices. And, indeed, people of conscience took action and prevailed. As I stated before, the GOP’s strongest calling card is its stance on defending the life of the pre-
