Laurel took leap of faith and it paid off with annual celebration By Tony E. Windsor The sluggish economy has created a financial situation warranting cutback in areas of operating budgets in communities throughout the country. Such is the case for the Town of Laurel. But, Laurel’s Mayor made a decision back in March that regardless of the economic picture there would be a Laurel Independence Day celebration.
In late December, 2009, the Laurel Mayor and Council received the news that the Laurel Chamber of Commerce would no longer be able to coordinate the annual event. After 15 years the Chamber felt a need to place more of a focus on its relationship with area business. The work to put on the annual 4th of July event was very time consuming.
WHAT’S HAPPENING.... Turn to our Bulletin Board every Thursday to see what’s happening this weekend.
Though this would put the town in the position of starting extremely late in planning for an event, it was decided that the event should continue. Mayor John Shwed immediately began calling on members of the community to step up and share in the coordination and operation of the 2010 event.

Biff Lee files for re-election State Rep. Biff Lee (R-Laurel) has filed with the Department of Elections to retain his 40th District seat. During 2010, Rep. Lee was a co-sponsor of a package of nine new laws motivated by the victimization of more than 100 children by accused pedofile and former pediatrician Earl Bradley. Lee also co-sponsored a new law designed to curtail the rash of copper thefts in Delaware. The statute requires scrap dealers to photograph every seller and report every transaction involving the purchase of copper and some other metals. Citing rising spending and taxes, Rep. Lee has voted against each of the state’s last two operating budgets. In 2009, Rep. Lee said the state enacted a tax and fee package totaling more than $200 million and this year state spending increased by more than $200 million. Lee wants to return to office to continue representing his constituents and acting as a voice of dissent for actions he says are taking Delaware in the wrong direction. Lee was first elected to office in 1990. If successful in the Nov. 2 contest, he’ll become the most tenured member of the House of Representatives’ Sussex County delegation and the House Republican Caucus. A full-time state representative, Lee is a retired Delaware State Police veteran. During a 20-year career, Lee rose through the ranks from trooper to sargeant. Lee has also served the community as an active volunteer with the Laurel Fire Co. During more than three decades, he has held many positions with the organization, including company president.

Summertime brings heat and increased criminal activities By Tony E. Windsor
It is summer time and for many that means family gatherings and outdoor community celebrations. But, for the Laurel Police Department it can mean enhanced criminal activities. In the span of three days the police department investigated crimes including: • A burglary on Tuesday, July 5, at Combined Formula Entertainment on West 7th Street, where $3,000 in clothing and jewelry was taken. • A robbery at about 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 5, that occurred in the parking lot of the Ram Deli on North Central Avenue. According to police, a man was sitting in his car counting money when an unidentified black male approached him and grabbed his money and a cell phone. The man, according to the victim, fled on foot running toward the Carvel Garden Apartment complex. He was unable to give any further description of the suspect. • A robbery in progress at Carvel Gardens Apartment Complex at about 12:35 p.m., Wednesday, July 6. According to police, when they arrived the victim of the robbery said he was working in the area of the 2100 building and was approached by two black men. One of the men grabbed the man and forced him into the basement area of the building. The assailant then took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled. Police were able to use description information from the victim of one of the two suspects. A short time later a K-9 officer located the man walking in the area of Hollybrook Farms Apartments. When the officer approached the man he ran. The officer deployed his K-9 who apprehended the suspect. Police said as the dog caught up with the suspect the man struck the dog twice with a closed fist to the head. He then ran toward the Carvel Gardens complex. In order to assure the safety of the bystanders who had by this time gathered in the area he recalled the K-9. The victim of the robbery flagged down another officer who was responding to the scene and told him he saw the man run into the stairwell of the 700 building. Officers checked that location and found the suspect hiding under the steps and arrested him. The suspect is identified as Dontrez Archer, 21, of Delmar, Md. He was charged with second-degree robbery, resisting arrest and second-degree assault on a law officer (K-9). He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institute on 11,000 secured bond. • A second robbery at Carvel Gardens Apartment Complex occurring at about 2:36 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6. Police said they found the victim bleeding from his face. He told police that he was walking across the complex when he was attacked by two black

men. He said the men tried to take money from his pockets. However, police said the man would not cooperate with police, so they have no further information about the crime. • A stabbing at Carvel Gardens Apartment Complex, Thursday, July 8, at about 7 p.m. police were notified about a stabbing victim who was being treated at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, in Seaford. Officers went to the hospital and met with the victim of the stabbing who said he had been in an argument with his girlfriend at their apartment in the Carvel Gardens Apartment Complex in Laurel. He said as he was leaving the apartment his girlfriend cut him with a knife on his hands and back. Police said the injuries were not life threatening, but did require medical attention. Police have warrants for the arrest of Alexius Smith, 20, of Laurel in connection with the knife attack. • A report of an attempted prescription fraud at the Rite Aid Drugstore on South Central Avenue. Police said at about 4 p.m., Wednesday, July 7, officers responded to the drug store and spoke to a pharmacist who told them that he found a prescription to be suspicious in nature, so he called to verify. He learned that the prescription had been altered from 50 Percocet pills to 150 pills. Police arrested Sara Adkins, 46, of Laurel and charged her with second-degree forgery and obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud. She was released on bond. Laurel Police Chief Jamie Wilson said on Monday afternoon that the investigations represented by the incidents occurring between July 5 and 8, are not unusual for the town, and especially given it is summer. He said people are more active and out during the warmer months and Laurel, like other communities tends to have an influx of people that come in from other areas. Recent concerns about Laurel’s financial picture and the inability to afford a full complement of police officers has led to citizens and business owners expressing their concerns publically about lack of police presence consistently throughout the community. Recently, the Laurel Police Department lost three officers, all who left to take employment with other police agencies. Those positions have not, and are not being considered for being filled. The most recent officer to leave the force was the Laurel School District Resource Officer, Andy Will who has taken a job with the Fruitland Police Department. Will worked at the Laurel High School and his salary was paid through a contract with the Laurel School District. However, it has not been determined whether the school district will be able to hire a Laurel Police Officer. The district must see if there will be funds available and

some of those involve federal monies that are not decided on until the fall. If the school is not able to fund the school resource officer position there is danger that one other police officer position may need to be cut. Wilson said he understands the financial position the town is in and works to be “creative” in how he coordinates the duties of his staff. Currently, there are nine officers patrolling the streets of Laurel. A tenth officer is on the payroll but currently on long term medical leave. With four major apartment complexes (Carvel Gardens, Hollybrook Farms, Little Creek and Wexler Village) along with the normal patrols on the east, west and central business district of the town, it can be challenging. Simply patrolling the streets of the town is only one component of the job. Each time an officer responds to a complaint there is a risk that he could be tied up for as much as several hours. This leaves one officer on patrol. In the instance of serious, sometimes violent complaints, both officers must respond and there are no officers patrolling. “We can’t be everywhere,” Wilson said. “But that is the case with any law enforcement agency. Sometimes we have nights when it seems the streets roll up and there are no problems at all; everything is quiet. Other nights we have so many incidents that we could use all nine officers. Unfortunately, we have fewer quiet nights.” Wilson said he has heard from other law enforcement agencies who have expressed awe at the criminal complaint log handled by the Laurel Police Department. “I have had officers from other agencies ask me how we are able to deal with the compliant load we have,” he said. “But, this is all I have ever known. I came to Laurel fresh out of
the academy and this is the only community where I have been a police officer. We will try to do whatever we have to meet the challenges and be as creative as possible about taking care of the community.” In the month of June the Laurel Police Department handled 788 complaints, an increase of 117 over June 2009. Wilson is quick to point out that while 329 of the complaints were called into police, the lion’s share, 459 complaints came from individual proactive police work. Police made 158 arrests in June, 33 of those arrests were drug related. Wilson hopes that the Laurel School District is able to contract for a school resource officer. “That is kind of a doubleedged sword,” he said. Wilson explained that the school officer is not out patrolling the streets, but helps to provide security and develop relationships with the kids at the school. The presence of the school resource officer also helps minimize the need for other road officers to respond to possible school-related complaints. The Laurel Police Department also has an application in for funding through the federal COPS (Community Oriented Policing Services). Laurel had employed two officers through this grant, but was not funded last year when the grant ran out. This created a serious void in the police budget and was a catalyst for the town’s inability to maintain a full complement of officers. The police department waits for word on possible funding, but in the meantime, Wilson continues to work with his officers to strategize and meet the needs of community law enforcement utilizing available resources as best he can.

Laurel able to raise enough to cover Fourth of July fireworks Continued from page 1
immediately agreed to continue its role of planning the opening parade. This left concerns about the reality of having a fireworks display as part of the event. At a cost of about $15,000, the question became a matter of financial discretion. The financial picture in Laurel, even as early as January, was not optimistic. But, Mayor Shwed could not accept the loss of the annual Independence Day celebration. “This celebration is important to the people of this town,” he said. “It is even more important given the downturn in the economy. It provides a great source of pride in community and helps people feel really good about their community,” he said. So, not only did Shwed support the town taking over the coordination of the annual event, he also felt the town needed to show a good faith effort in assuring there were fireworks. “I had heard from many people as I was out and about in the community and a lot of them were asking if we were going to have a Fourth of July event and were we going to be able to have fireworks,” he said. “I told them if the people in the community and the civic and faith-based groups came together we could have a celebration. I believed it could be done.” So, during a council meeting in March, Shwed asked the town council to join him taking a leap of faith and provide the funds needed to secure a contract for the July Fourth fireworks display. At a time when the town was looking at certain cut backs to meet the upcoming budget, Shwed said, “I stuck my neck out.”
He said that in order for the fireworks to move forward a contract would be needed and a guarantee of at least $15,000 to be on hand. During the March, 2009 meeting Shwed asked to earmark up to $15,000 in budget reserves for the purchase of the fireworks display. Believing that the community would support the project Shwed felt the town would ultimately not have to foot the bill for the fireworks but would instead raise enough funds through contributions to pay the necessary costs. He was right and now after two weeks Laurel Operations Manager Jamie Smith is still counting the money, but is sure all costs relating to the fireworks has been covered. “I am still counting change, but we have already reached our goal of $15, 000,” Smith said. She said plastic canisters put in businesses throughout Laurel alone raised about $3,000. She credits John Theofiles, a local businessman and former Laurel Chamber president, with taking the lead and helping to make the fireworks a success, both aesthetically and financially. “John has been doing the fireworks coordination for the July 4th event for several years and agreed to help us this year,” she said. “He knows everything there is to know about the fireworks display and works well with the group that we contracted for this year’s event,” she said. In addition to coordinating the fireworks display, Smith said Theofiles also helped solicit support from businesses and individuals who had traditionally supported the Laurel Fourth of July event in the past.
Mayor Shwed said the recent Laurel Independence Day celebration reflects true community spirit. “The people value the Independence Day celebration and rallied together,” he said. “They understand the financial hardship facing the town, but look forward to the celebration. The people did it. They came together and we had a nice team effort from citizens, businesses civic organizations and faith-based groups. This was a community event in
every sense of the word.” Smith said it is difficult to estimate the number of people who attended Laurel’s Independence Day event but felt comfortable that there were between 6,000 and 8,000 people. “Everything went really smoothly and we had no problems,” she said. Shwed and Smith both said they are already planning next year’s event. And yes, they said they plan to have fireworks.

Rain heightens interest in Riverfest 2011 By Lynn R. Parks
This past weekend, Carolyn Farley traveled more than 100 miles, from Springfield, Va., a suburb of Washington, D.C., to Seaford and its annual Riverfest. She and her husband, Rick, set up their funnel cake stand, Carol’s Concessions, on High Street just west of city hall. But by 4 p.m. Saturday, about six hours after the city, which sponsors the festival, canceled all outdoor activities due to rain and threatening thunderstorms, the stand’s slow trickle of customers dwindled to none. The Farleys packed up shop and headed home, about six hours earlier than they had intended. “The weather kind of put a damper on things,” Carolyn Farley said as she fried up what would turn out to be the last funnel cake of the day. “But that’s OK—I’m already looking forward to next year.” And there will be a next year, said Trisha Newcomer, the city’s economic development and information and technology manager. Riverfest 2011 is set for July 7, 8 and 9. “Riverfest will go on again,” Newcomer said. “We will not let this year’s rain deter us from another festival next year.” Newcomer said that this was the first wash-out in the 16-year history of Riverfest. “We’ve been extremely fortunate up until now,” she added. “And I think that this year’s rain will make people even more eager for next year.” Jason and Darlene Hudson, Seaford, agree. With their 4-year-old daughter, Kalith, they wandered down High Street Saturday afternoon. “We just walked down the street and now we’re walking back and heading home,” said Jason. “There’s not much here. But we’re not disappointed. And we’ll be back next year. I won’t not come back because it rained today.” Riverfest opened on Thursday with a carnival, sponsored by the Nanticoke Rotary Club. On Friday, after a shower moved through town at around lunchtime, vendors set up along High Street. The city opted to move all Friday-night entertainment scheduled for the festival’s main stage into the Seaford Fire Hall, to prevent sound equipment from being damaged by rain. Friday-evening activities, including
opening ceremonies and the Mayor’s Invitational Egg Toss, got off without problem. “Competitors got a little rained on during the egg toss, but they went ahead,” Newcomer said. State Rep. Danny Short was the winner. On Saturday, vendors arrived on High Street and started setting up their booths. “We had quite a few vendors downtown and people were showing up for the car show,” Newcomer said. Then at around 9:30, “the bottom dropped out.” City staff turned to the internet to check the forecast for the day. “There was not an hour that had anything less than a 50-percent chance of rain,” Newcomer said. All outdoor activities, including entertainment set for the Rotary Stage behind city hall and for Gateway Park, were canceled. The festival keystone event, the Nanticoke River float-in, was also canceled because of threatening thunderstorms. As it had been Friday, entertainment that was scheduled for the main bandstand was moved inside. Vendors were allowed to stay if they wanted. Many left, but a few, like the Farleys, stayed until mid-afternoon. “It was very disheartening,” Newcomer said. “We had a committee that worked so hard for months to bring together a wonderful festival for the community, and Mother Nature didn’t want to cooperate.” She praised the nearly 20 volunteers, including city employees, city council members and members of the Riverfest committee, for pitching in and helping to take down tents and clean up trash after the activities were canceled. “They worked in the pouring rain and were drenched,” she said. “But we had everything cleaned up by around 2 p.m.” Late Saturday afternoon, friends Maggie Durig, 15, and Ashley Bean 16, both from Seaford, sat in Gateway Park, eating a snack from the nearby Royal Farms convenience store. They normally participate in the float-in, Maggie said. “There’s not much here to do,” said Maggie. “But it’s still kind of nice to be here, walking around.” “I wish that more people were here,” added Ashley. “And that more vendors had stayed.” Bruce Bradt, from Georgetown, and Tom Collins, Seaford, didn’t let the fact

that the float-in and the kayak race, both of which they planned to participate in, were cancelled deter them from enjoying the Nanticoke. Late Saturday afternoon, they were taking turns rowing a kayak along the river. “We got soaked earlier today when we
were waiting for the races,” Collins said. “But that’s OK — the river is beautiful now.” Collins also echoed the sentiments of many whose Riverfest plans were changed by the rain. “I’ll be back again next year,” he said.

Childhood tales sparked Kendal Jones’ desire to preserve Laurel’s history By James Diehl
hen an 11-year-old Kendal Jones moved into the home of his recently-widowed great aunt in the late 1930s, it was like experiencing heaven on earth. Running water, electricity, even oriental rugs were a welcome addition from the rural farmhouse he grew up in near Lowe’s Crossroads. But a funny thing happened while moving into the thriving town of Laurel – young Kendal became interested in history and in his family’s role during the formative years of western Sussex County. Hanging out with adults much older than he – his mother was 40 when he was born – only helped fuel those interests, which continue today at the age of 83. “Since I was around older people a lot when I was young, I would just sit and listen to their stories,” says Jones, who later became a core community activist in his hometown. “Spending that time with my great aunt and listening to her stories just got me interested in the history of Laurel.” And what a history it is – Jones can trace his family tree back to William Penn, whose family bestowed a 45-acre land grant to Jones’ ancestors in 1776. Much of that land, between Lowe’s Crossroads and Gumboro, remains with the Jones family today. But it wasn’t until moving in with Florence Jones, the widow of Dr. W. T. Jones, that his family’s role in history began to interest him. Spending many of his formative years in the home on Market Street piqued an interest that has remained with him throughout his lifetime, one that has been filled with all sorts of community service endeavors. “A lot of people helped me growing up, and I just always felt that when I grew up I would try to pay some of that back,” says Jones, who was named Laurel’s 1989 Citizen of the Year by the Laurel Chamber of Commerce. And pay it back he has – Jones is a charter member of the Laurel Historical

Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com Society, serving as its president on two separate occasions, a former town council member, the developer of the Laurel Museum, a former board member of the Laurel Chamber of Commerce and for 50 years has been a member of the Old Christ Church League. Laurel is his town, and he’s committed to preserving as much of its history as possible. “There’s just so much history here in Laurel that we need to preserve,” says the veteran of World War II and long-time accountant. “And, through the Western Sussex [Scenic and Historic] Byway, we’re trying our best to get people off of Route 13 to appreciate the natural beauty that we have here in western Sussex County, beauty that we often take for granted.” Born to Edgar and Esthella Jones just outside of Laurel, Jones attended the oneroom schoolhouse at Lowe’s Crossroads for a year before beginning his daily commute to Laurel as a second grader. As luck would have it, there was an empty seat on the school bus at the time and his parents could pay $2 a month for their son to have the privilege of riding to school. Graduating with the class of 1944, Jones was drafted into the United States Navy during World War II, serving his country at a base in California. He attained his degree in Accounting and Business Administration in 1947 from what is today Goldey-Beacom College and worked for the next 49 years in various positions, including 20 years as the business manager of the Seaford School District. He
Kendal T. Jones, pictured here near the original Native American “wading place” along Broad Creek, has lived nearly his entire life in the Laurel community. One of his main missions today is keeping the history of Laurel alive through his roles with the historical society, the Old Christ Church League, the Western Sussex Scenic and Historic Byway, and other organizations.
retired in 1996 and has worked to preserve the history of western Sussex County ever since. During his working years, and while raising two teenagers in the ‘60s and ‘70s, Jones was also heavily involved in the American Field Service program. He hosted two foreign students through the program – a young lady from Costa Rica and a male student from Switzerland. “That was a good program and I really enjoyed that,” says Jones, who also served as president of the Laurel chapter of American Field Service for many years. “The boy came back from Switzerland in the late ‘80s and told me that the experience changed his life. That really makes you feel pretty good.” Jones’ family ties to the area date back more than 200 years – his parents and grandparents attended a one-room schoolhouse that was built in 1840 and attended
church services in a now-demolished structure. Both buildings carried the Jones family name as their official titles – Jones School still stands today as a farm building, while Jones Church has long since been committed to the history books. In 1977, a year after the country celebrated its bicentennial, Jones helped form the Laurel Historical Society. It’s a group that has become a very important part of his life, and one he is very proud of. A main issue moving forward, however, is piquing young people’s interest in the history of what used to be one of the state’s most affluent and important towns, a town that boasts natural waterways, a historic railroad stop and a handful of influential former governors. Jones’ answer is simple – “You just have to talk about it.” And he’s done just that over the years, Continued to page 37

Dog.” So, Dog became the last Barton pet. He was a warm and friendly mutt, loved to eat a bowl of ice cream, took over evening residency of the large hassock we had in the family room, and would persistently nudge the feet of anyone off of the hassock so that he could settle in for the evening. One rabbit season he disappeared. We roamed the town looking for Dog, to no avail. Whoever took Dog were in for a big mistake. He was a beautiful dog, loved to race about, but would never chase a rabbit. Our dogs had dog houses Chuck built and primarily lived outside the house. They ate table scraps, sometimes tasty morsels, and dog food. Nothing really special. They had shelter in the summer and winter, and during very cold weather would sleep in the basement at night — or the kids bedrooms. They also had a garden shed for protection in nasty weather, had plenty of water and food daily. Each had a collar with identification. They were well fed, well loved and well known. They were family members. Our generation of dogs would not make it in today’s dog world. They never knew the luxury of granola bones, nylabones or muscle chews, pig ears or pig snooters. They had the luxury of an old ham bone that they would gnaw on for hours and hours. Our dogs had a warm bed at night, usually an old pillow or bed of used blankets. They never experienced a pet booster seat, but took control of the back seat of any of our vehicles. Inside they took over the hassock, or occasionally would be brave (or foolish) enough to jump on the middle of the bedspread. We all loved each pet and each of these dogs, with their individual personality, was a member of the Barton household. They were lovable, well-adjusted animals and would add a wonderful dimension to our life. None were neurotic, but each had a lovely personality. Each one was very special and just as with a small child, each pet knew he or she was loved.

The Western Sussex Democratic Club held their summer picnic on Monday evening at Dale Dukes’ recreation center.
This week was a time for parties. Monday, July 5, Charlene and Darrell Meade hosted one for out-of-towners. Guest Mao Co, a friend of their son, Ethan, was here from Seoul, Korea, and visiting other relatives in the states. They also had as guests for a week, cousins, Erik and Sue Kridle, with children, Olivia, Elizabeth and Jacob, from Southern California. It was a great dinner party and getting acquainted all around with other family members and friends. Irene Hastings of Evergreen Drive has recently returned from a week’s vacation in North Carolina. Her son, Dallas, and his wife, Susan, came first to Laurel; then all three traveled to Wilmington and took the “A” train ( Amtrack) to Fayetteville, N.C. Irene loves traveling by train but they were speeding along so fast (125 m.p.h.) that the scenic beauties became scenic blurring. She made up for that loss as, in Fayetteville and areas around, she visited museums and Civil War battle grounds and enjoyed some great dining. Now back home, she brought fond memories of a wonderful summer vacation.
Leah Snyder, who was a runner in the 5K race on July 4, brought home a very nice third place trophy for her mantelpiece (and she does have a mantelpiece in her home!). Ralph Gootee is wished a speedy recovery and home soon, from all his friends, following his recent surgery.
There are parties and there are parties and a real “barn burner” was held (in the much decorated barn) last Saturday night at the
Trivits’ place to celebrate Matthew’s 16th birthday. The party, given by his parents, John and Kim, featured crabs, corn on the cob, fried chicken, home made ice cream and a variety of other goodies. Weekend guests were Randy, Barbara and Ryan Cartright from Hoopers Island (hence those wonderful crabs). Needless to say all guest left “full” and happy. Incidentally, happy belated birthday, Matt. I have just learned that Mary Jane Phillips of Delmar, who has been on our prayer list for a few weeks, was returned to P.R.M.C. for emergency surgery last Saturday. At this writing she remains hospitalized there. We all wish her a speedy and complete recovery.
I wish a very special happy birthday, with love, to my dear daughter-in-law, Kim, on July 19. Have many more, Kimmie! We have some Delmar birthdays wishes to send: A belated wish to Tommy Lane, who celebrated his on July 1. And more of the same wishes go to David Charles Smith, who will be 21 on July 22, and to Sarah Mae Elizabeth Smith, with lots of love from “Mom,” celebrating 18 years on July 22. Special birthday wishes to Donald Farrelly on July 15, and to Susie Oakes on July 19. Best wishes to Frank and Peggy Vinder, as they celebrate a wedding anniversary on July 21, from all their friends.
We express our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Sgt. Andrew J. Creighton, Della Windsor Hastings, Edward Dubinski and Doris Parker Moore.
We continue with prayers for our service men and women and our friends who are ill: Ralph Gootee, Mary Jane Phillips, Susan Levredge, Walt Dorman, Dot Murphy, Jean Henry, Ida Lee Coulbourne, Conner Niblett, Robert Truitt, Calvin Hearn, Janet Lee, Al Bozman, Rita Brex, Sandy Jones Lee, Theodosia Gordy, Byrd Whaley, Hazel Brumbley, Fred Sullivan, Betty Chandler, June Benson Powell, Rita Baker, Jean Foskey and Debbie Carter. Happy July birthday wishes to: Rosalyn Crone, Betty Elliott (17); Henry Jones (18); Janice Hyland, Pauline Hyland, Morris Lewis (21); and Bonita Bulota (22). Don’t forget, “Always open your mind before you open your mouth.” See you in the stars.

It was also a welcome back celebration for the visit here of Luke Styres and family; wife, Melissa and two dear little girls, Allyson and Kaela from Rienzi, Miss. The music was fast forwarded by D.J. Conrad Styres and the “grill master” was Mark Hastings. Luke’s mother, Lora, was more than happy to entertain them for a week at her Laurel home. Luke and family have now returned to Mississippi.

Moments With Mike
Well, I survived three heat waves and one minor summer storm, so guess I’ll pen another column this week.
What a wild and wooley summer this has been so far. The so-called “dog days” which normally do not descend upon us until midAugust, are already here in this horrible heat wave we had on the Eastern shore, and the east coast in general. The crazy weather has given food for thought to lots of us. Hearing “dog days” referred to several times brought memories of the various dogs we’ve had as family pets through the years. In the case of our household, it all began when our first dog, Butch, a lovely beagle, became a part of the family. He was a big old, scruffy ball of energy, much loved and spoiled, of course. Next in line we had Beauty, a collie that was definitely Bonnie’s dog. Beauty was a collie with the softest coat in the world. She was loving and frisky, devoted to Bonnie. Her one fault was that she loved to chase chickens and that was definitely a “No, No.” At the time of Beauty’s arrival to our family fold, Mr. Jim Cordrey had a large chicken house across the branch and up the hill beyond the woods of our home. Beauty always managed to get away from our house and go up to Mr. Jim’s house and set the chickens in a fit, barking and yappin’ and upsetting the chickens in general. Bonnie walked her all over town, using a little harness that Chuck had made to keep her under control. Her passion for chickens, unfortunately, brought her life to an early demise. Next in our family life came Skipper, a lovable old lumbering dog Chuck brought home one day as a baby in a box. Skipper was well-known around our end of town and would take a neighborhood walk each morning and night, going from door to door to extend his daily greetings and check out the food supply from well-intentioned neighbors. Some in our area referred to him as “Hamburg,” since several widows actually cooked him hamburg and kept him well fed. Coupled with the food he ate at home, he was a bit of a chubby beagle. Skipper was always known as Johns dog. We could look outside and always know where John was playing, because Skipper would be standing guard close by. We had a strong sense of security with Skipper and our brood, knowing he was always protective. Skipper marched in nearly every little league parade during the course of his life as a Barton household member. He slept well at night, too, since he was usually smuggled into John’s bed. Both dog and son thought Chuck and I didn’t know that the unusually large lump in the middle of John’s bed was Skipper. He suffered from arthritis early in life all due to a love of chasing cars and being struck more than once. It was a habit we could not break and resulted in his demise later on. Dog was a dog that adopted Chuck and became the last dog in the Barton family life. One day Chuck was at Ed Layton’s service station on Fourth Street, when he looked out at his pick-up and perched up on the front seat, paws on dashboard, looking over the scenery was this cute little Beagle. Chuck and Edward Lee tried their best to get the dog out of the vehicle but he was determined to stay. He had wandered into Edward Lee’s station, had no tags or identification. We advertised finding him in the newspapers, but no one ever claimed him, so he became a Barton. Trying to decide just what name we would give him, son, Philip, calmly said, “He’s a dog. Just call him

MORNING STAR • July 15 - 21, 2010
Entertainment was different as a child There it was. I could hardly believe it. Lying half covered in the dirt was a shiny round object. Closer inspection confirmed my greatest expectations; it was a quarter. A quarter may not sound like too much, but when you are nine years old in 1966, it was like finding a brick of gold. Before I even managed to pick it up I started imagining where and how I would spend it. I had it spent by the time I got it in hand. When you received money, whether the 10 cents our barber Ira Lowe always gave us after a haircut, or the 25 cents my grandmother would give me for helping her during the week, there was a certain criteria to follow. If it was less than a dollar, you would go to Archie Tyler’s or Bryan Hall’s stores to spend it. If it was a dollar or more, it was off to McCrory’s (The 10cent store). Once I had the quarter in my pocket I tore off for town like Grant through Richmond. Mr. Archie’s store was my family’s “Food Lion.” If I was craving candy or Oatmeal cakes, or maybe those chocolate cupcakes with white cream inside, that is where I would go. However, if had my mind on a toy, then it was off to Bryan Hall’s store. Walking into Bryan Hall’s store I would scan the rows of candy neatly stacked against the front counter and then look at the spinning metal rack that contained all kinds of gimmicks and gadgets. I had gotten every item at one time or another. There was the stink bomb. That was a riot. It was a small ball with a fuse that once lit would eventually emit a smoke cloud of gaseous sulfur. Why was that legal? Even more importantly, what possible use could there be for anyone other than a juvenile delinquent? There was the small buzzer that you could use to shake hands with somebody and deliver a buzzing vibratration in the palm of their hand. Now, this seemed like such a clever and humorous practical joke. But given the fact that I can recall maybe once in my childhood that I shook hands with someone it was hard to set up the joke. I would walk up to one of my friends with hand stretched out and say, “Hey, shake hands.” There was hardly an element of surprise. I would have been more successful if I had been wearing a sandwich board sign proclaiming I had just been to Bryan Hall’s and bought a handshake buzzer. Of course I could always buy paper caps. They were normally reserved for the cap pistol I would get each year for Christmas. However, by summertime I was lucky if there was a trigger or barrel left to the gun. But, I would still buy paper caps. There would be anywhere from three to six rolls of paper caps depending on the price. I would take the caps home and sit down on the back porch steps with a brick and a hammer. If I didn’t have access to a hammer, another brick would do. I would take a roll of paper caps and slam a brick down on top of it and hear the loud crack of the miniature explosion and watch the smoke
W e Fill Yo u I n
Once I had the quarter in my pocket I tore off for town like Grant through Richmond. and gunpowder shoot out from the target. This would last between two and four minutes, depending on whether I had three or six rolls of paper caps. Looking back on this exercise in futility it is easy to see I was certainly no ball of creative energy. More often than not, I would wind up buying the little Army man that was attached to a parachute. He was green, dressed in fatigues and holding a rifle. The plastic parachute was with him, folded strategically inside the cellophane package. The outside of the bag stated, “Hours of fun. Watch this military hero float down for action anywhere you choose.” What action? He was a hollow soft plastic replica of a soft plastic hollow soldier. But, I would buy it and run home to play with it. The first thing I had to do was untangle the six to eight threads that attached the parachute. I would then throw the soldier as high in the air and watch him float down. I would then pick him up, untangle the six to eight threads and throw him again. It was probably six times in the air before the threads would either break one at a time or get so tangled I would grow impatient trying to straighten them out. Eventually the parachute would only open about half way because the strings were tangled and the soldier would fall like a soft rock. It would be 30 minutes into my play with the parachuting soldier that I would usually send him on his last mission: to parachute into the burning barrel of trash my dad would have set a few minutes earlier. Well, including the time it took to get to the store, pick out the toy, run back home and play with the soldier, that quarter I found had given me an hour of entertainment. Now, I would just need to figure out what to do with the other eight or nine hours.

Rick Laubach, Kenny Pettyjohn win big in Camp Barnes benefit By Charlie Brown
Rick Laubach of Quakertown, Pa. won the Shootout at last year’s Camp Barnes Benefit. This year Lauback returned for the 38 Annual event this time driving the Benton Electric and Elevator/Teo and once again it paid off big. Laubach won his head and started on the pole in the 25lap Big Block Modified feature, leading every lap and collecting $3,600 for his efforts. Kenny Pettyjohn of Millsboro won his second big payday of the season at DIS in the Super Late Model 25-lap main. Pettyjohn took the lead on lap 14 and led the rest of the distance to earn $3,275. Other winners on the night included Jon Callaway of Harrington, in the AC Delco Modifieds, Nick Davis of Gumboro in the Crate Models, Tim White of Salisbury in the Mod Lites and Bill Brittingham of Felton in the Little Lincoln Vintage cars. Private First Class Randall Allen, home on two weeks leave from Afghanistan, was the honorary starter for the night. Laubach took control at the start of the 25-lap Big Block Modified feature with Kenny Brightbill slipping into second and Jimmy Horton running third. Chad James charged into fourth and took third from Horton on lap 12. One lap later, James moved by Brightbill into second. His drive would end on lap 19 when he slowed to a stop bringing out the yellow. Laubach had no problems with the restarts and pulled away each time. Billy Pauch was running third with five to go and took second from Horton with two laps to go. Laubach went on to the win with Pauch second and Horton third. Fourth went ot Brightbill and Matt Jester rounded out the top five. Heats were won by Laubach and Jamie Mills. “I do like coming down here,” said Laubach. “It was easy for us because it doesn’t hurt to draw a good number. I know our laps times were fast so if they had went by that like last year we still would have been decent.” Donald Lingo, Jr. took off in the lead in the Super Late Model feature. Ricky Elliott chased from second with Kenny Pettyjohn running in third. Devin Friese was on the move and took third on lap three. Friese had just worked by Elliott for second on lap ten when Elliott slowed bringing out the yellow. Lingo controlled the restart but he too slowed in the second turn bringing out the yellow and turning the lead over to Friese. Friese led through the halfway sign before Pettyjohn moved on top. David Hill
followed into second. Hill made a final attempt for the win with one to go but came up short and Pettyjohn picked up his second big win of the season. Ross Robinson came on strong in the closing laps to finish in third with Friese fourth and Rob Schirmer fifth. Heats were won by Lingo and Elliott. “These were the two nights to win,” Pettyjohn said of his two victories this season. “This was a tough one and that’s one tough race car I was riding in.” Davis almost led wire to wire in the 15-lap Crate Model feature. Matt Hill gave chase early on before Sparky White worked into second. Joe Warren took the second spot at the halfway sign and edged out front for lap 13. Davis was back out front for the white flag and went on to his second win of the season. Chris Hitchens took second from Warren on the final lap. Fourth went to Mike Wharton and Clint Chalabala rounded out the top five. Davis set fast time in qualifying. Callaway collected all the lap money in the 15-lap AC Delco Modified feature. Shawn Ward took second from Brandon Perdue on lap two and challenged Callaway the remainder of the distance. Ward got along side of Callaway with one to go but Callaway held him off to record his second win of the season and his first Camp Barnes victory. Ward finished in second with Justin Griffith third. Fourth went to Greg Taylor, Jr. and Mike White rounded out the top five. Fast time in qualifying was set by Callaway. Drivers from five states made up the 24 car Mod Lite starting field. Ty Short led the first seven laps with White taking charge at the halfway sign. At that point he was followed by Short, Kevin McKinney, James Hill and Brandon Dennis in the top five. White drove his Floyd Carey owned mount to his second win of the season. Short crossed the line in second but failed the post race inspection. Finishing in second through fifth were Kerry King, Jr., Dennis, McKinney and western Pennsylvania’s Lynn Knepper. Fast time in qualifying was set by Short. In the 12-lap Little Lincoln feature, John Stevenson led the first two laps before Brittingham nosed in front for lap three. Stevenson regained the lead a lap later and held the top spot until lap eight when Brittingham went back out front to stay. Stevenson would chase him the rest of the distance but it was Brittingham taking the win. Stevenson finished in second with Mel Joseph, Jr. coming from the rear to finish in third. Fourth went to Brian Brasure and Emory West rounded out the top five.

Laurel Major League all-star softball team wins District III title By Mike McClure The Laurel Major League all-star softball team won the District III title with a 12-0 win over Lewes on Tuesday night in Laurel. The team, led by manager Brad Lee, will look to win its second straight state title when it traverls to Milford for the state tournament next week. Laurel scored five runs in the first inning thanks to a two-run triple by Rachel Davis, an RBI single by Savannah Brown, a sacrifice fly by Tristin West, and Morgan Joseph’s RBI double. Lewes collected its only hit of the game off Regan Green in the bottom of the first, but Green stranded the runner with her third strikeout of the inning. Laurel added a run in the second inning when Davis reached first on an error, moved to second on a single by Brown, stole third, and scored on a fielder’s choice. In the top of the fourth, Sabrina Savage walked and scored on an error, Shelby Murphy walked and came home on a single by Davis, Kortney Lee singled and scored on a base hit by Green, Davis came home on a single by Brooke Jones, and Jones and Alex Joseph scored on an error (12-0). Green recorded a pair of strikeouts in the bottom of the fourth to seal the Laurel win. Green struck out 10 in four innings and collected two hits, Davis had two hits and three RBIs, and Brown added two hits and an RBI. The defending state champions, with six or seven players back from last year’s team, will take on the District II (New Castle) champions next Wednesday in Milford. “We expect to do well in states. Definitely our goal is the state tournament year in and year out,” said Laurel manager Brad Lee. “We saw some teams that not only did they have good players but they were deep (at regionals in Albany, N.Y. last year.”
Woodbridge Minor League softball team advances to championship By Lynn Schofer The Woodbridge Minor League all-star softball team has played in some excitingly tight games in the 2010 tournament. On Monday evening in Georgetown, the Woodbridge team took on Milton. It would take eight innings to give Woodbridge the 3-2 victory in the game and send them to the District III championship game. Woodbridge’s Mya Maddox pitched seven strong innings and scored the winning run in the top of the eighth to give Woodbridge the win. Woodbridge took an early lead in the first inning on a bunt single by Maddox followed by sacrifice by Kayla Hastings and a single by Lisa Eck. Milton showed some early nerves in the first inning scoring two errors in the first inning but settled in and held Woodbridge scoreless until the eighth inning. Maddox opened with three straight strikeouts but in the bottom of the second inning Milton would strike back and score two runs. In the third inning, Maddox walked the first batter who would steal second and third base, but Maddox turned on the heat to strike out the next three hitters that ended the threat. In the fourth inning Woodbridge loaded the bases with base hits by Mackenzie Masten, Hailey Slater and Maddox but were not able to add to their score. In the fifth Woodbridge would once again put hitters on base with Eckís single followed by sacrifices by Taylor Bassord and Delaney VanBuskirk. Tana Rafair took a ball in the back to put two runners in scoring position. Milton would hold strong and score the final out, stranding the two runners. In the sixth inning, Maddox hit a ball to deep right field and as she rounded first base was interfered on by the defense but it went unnoticed by the umpire. The play continued and when Maddox attempted to score she was thrown out at home. Milton was able to hold Woodbridge for the rest of the inning. The excitement continued into the bottom of the inning when Milton’s lead off batter sent a ball to the outfield and attempted to stretch it into a double but was thrown out by a well-thrown ball by Nadine Tinsman. Maddox would strike out the next two batters to take the game into the seventh inning. The game remained tied at 2-2 after seven innings and Maddox and catcher Corrin Farris switched positions. In the top of the eighth, Maddox punched a ball through the left side for a two-out single. Maddox stole second and went to third on an over thrown ball. She reacted when the infielder missed the ball and took off for home. This time her feet got under the tag and she scored the go ahead run. In the bottom of the inning, Farris struck out the first two batters and walked the next two. After a visit to the mound by her coach and mom Patty Farris, she settled in and finished the game with a strikeout. Maddox pitched seven innings and had 17 strikeouts. Farris pitched one inning with three strikeouts. Sports editor’s note: See next week’s Seaford Star for photos from this game.

MORNING STAR • JULY 15 - 21, 2010
Speech delays in children do not necessarily mean autism By Dr. Anthony Policastro I frequently see patients who come in with a complaint about speech delay. In most cases, the child is about two years of age. When they arrive, the complaint is usually that they are only saying a few words. While the complaint may be the same, there are several different types of delays. The first are the children who begin saying words late. Instead of starting at 12 months, they started at 18 months. Between 18 and 24 months their vocabulary has gradually increased. These children have a delay in starting speech but then follow a normal pattern. They will usually do fine and just need to be observed. The second are the children who started saying words at 12 months. They continued learning new words until about 18 months. Progression stopped and they need to be evaluated. They need a hearing test done because they might have fluid behind their eardrum interfering with hearing.
They also need to be evaluated by a speech therapist. The third are the children who started saying words at 12 months. By 24 months they have only learned a few words. They too need to have the same evaluation as those who stopped learning new words. The fourth are the children who began saying words at 12 months. However, at some point they no longer learned new words. They then began forgetting words that they already knew. This is very rare. It usually suggests the need for a full pediatric evaluation to make sure that there are not other areas that have regressed as well. In addition to the questions about speech itself, there are other important questions at this age. Many of them involve asking about symptoms of autism. While there is speech delay in autism, that is only one symptom. For that reason, speech delay does not usually mean autism. Speech delay is not the only speech problem exhibited by autistic children. They may say things that they hear over
and over and use words or phrases repeatedly. This overuse will be so severe that it bothers others around them. There are two other groups of symptoms that must be present to make the diagnosis of autism. One of those is a problem with social behavior. These children do not like to play with other children and they do not interact well with family members. They are not affectionate. Many other social related symptoms can be present. The other group of symptoms is called stereotypic behavior. These children have rituals that they follow. They may line their toys up in a certain way and they don’t like it if someone interferes. They may open and close doors for hours at a time and turn light switches on and off for extended periods of time. I will have parents come see me with a child who has none of these other symptoms. However, the parents are concerned about autism simply because of the speech delay. I sometimes will not see children with
speech difficulties until they are three years of age. By three years of age children should be talking in sentences. The first part of the evaluation is the same as for those seen at age two years of age. We need to know if there is normal progression or not. We need to know if speech stopped at some point and if it has regressed. The big difference when they hit age three is related to the evaluation. Before age three the State program, Child Development Watch, does the evaluation and they will refer the child to a speech therapist if necessary. After age three, the local school district does the evaluation and any necessary speech therapy. Most parents do not realize that they can get help from the schools at this point because they don’t think their child is old enough. While many children seem to have speech delays, there are a lot of different aspects to these delays. How we handle the delay depends on the story and other factors.

Neal Friesen is biking across the U.S. to raise awareness of disaster relief efforts with Cycle MDS.
Cyclist makes stop in Greenwood In a continuing campaign to raise awareness of disaster relief efforts, Neal Friesen has embarked upon Cycle MDS, a 10,000-mile solo tour of the continental United States, including a brief jaunt into Canada. Cycle MDS aims to highlight and promote such efforts undertaken by Mennonite Disaster Service and the Disaster Management program at Hesston College in Hesston, Kan. The trip began in New Iberia, La. and is scheduled to take approximately six months, with Friesen returning to Louisiana in November. Friesen will carry all 80 pounds of his equipment, including a portable camp stove and a small one-man tent, in a pack strapped to his bike. He plans to cover about 400 miles per week, entering each of the contiguous 48 states at least once on his journey. Mennonite Disaster Service, a disasterrelief agency comprised of Anabaptist churches in the United States and Canada, organizes volunteers to assist in disasterstricken areas in both countries, including areas now being contaminated by the Gulf oil spill.
Visit the ride’s website at www.cyclemds.org for ride updates, to learn more about the organizations, and to make a donation to support the MDS program, or follow Friesen’s blog at www.cycleMDS. blogspot.com.

Police Journal Invasion and sexual assault
Delaware State Police is investigating an early morning home invasion/sexual assault which occurred on Dove Road in Seaford, on Sunday, July 11, at 3:40 a.m. Three black male suspects entered the residence through an unsecured window. Once inside, the suspects entered the victim’s room. The 46-year-old female victim woke to one of the suspects assaulting her husband. The 49-year-old victim was struck on the head with a handgun and had a gun pointed at his head as one of the suspects sexually assaulted his wife. The suspects then walked the victims throughout their house looking for money. They ransacked the victim’s residence then led them outside and removed money, cell phones, jewelry, liquor and a laptop from the victim’s cars. After rummaging through the vehicles, the suspects fled on foot southbound on Dove Road. The male victim chased the suspects but lost sight of them. Delaware State Police K-9 officers responded to the scene and conducted a track for the suspects. The K-9 officer was able to locate an item of clothing belonging to one of the suspects but attempts to locate the suspects were unsuccessful. Delaware State Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating 3 black males - 5’6”, 5’8” and 6’ tall, dark complexions, wearing masks and dressed in all black clothing.

Woman dies in crash
On Sunday, July 11 at 7:45 a.m., Delaware State Police investigated a traffic crash which occurred on Seashore Highway east of Coverdale Crossroads. A 2000 Nissan Altima driven by Melissa Marie Mohl, 24, of Baltimore, Md., was eastbound on Seashore Highway. A second vehicle driven by 61-year-old Charles Cave Sr. of Georgetown was westbound on Seashore Highway east of Bridgeville.
MORNING STAR • July 15 - 21, 2010 Initial indications revealed that Mohl crossed into the westbound lane of travel and collided with Cave’s 1998 Chevrolet S-10 truck. The crash left both operators trapped in their vehicles. Mohl sustained severe head trauma and was transported to Nanticoke Hospital in Seaford where she was pronounced dead.

Foster parent sentenced
The Delaware Child Predator Task Force has announced that Steven Hughes, 52, of Newark was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Richard R. Cooch to 20 years in prison on child exploitation charges. Hughes is a former foster parent who operated a photography studio specializing in the photography of young children and also billed himself as a “Santa Claus” who would conduct home visits.
Hughes was arrested in Millsboro on Oct. 22, 2009 and was indicted on Nov. 9, 2009, on multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a child and dealing in child pornography. The indictment alleges that Hughes possessed 18 images of a 6-year-old female exposing her genitalia in sexually explicit poses and numerous other images of toddler-age females forced into sex acts with adult men. Hughes was charged with distributing these images by publishing them online to any interested party, including undercover law enforcement agents involved in the investigation. In total, the ongoing investigation revealed that Hughes maintained more than 15,000 images of child exploitation, hundreds of which he created himself. He pled guilty to five counts of sexual exploitation of a child on April 15.
Caretaker faces charges
On Monday, June 28, Delaware State Police investigated an abuse complaint at the Falcon Crest Group Home located on Falcon Crest Drive, Harbeson. State Police investigators learned that the two victims suffer from autism and mental retardation. In the first incident, the 26-year-old victim was eating dinner and did not want to sit while eating. The defendant, 46-year-old Bonnie Cornish of Seaford, the caretaker on duty, walked the victim to her room. Shortly thereafter, the
26-year-old victim returned to the eating area which apparently angered Cornish. Cornish took out a belt and struck the victim an undetermined amount of times while in the victim’s room. Moments later, the 26-year-old victim returned to the kitchen a second time and was again struck with a belt. Cornish walked the victim down the hallway to her room allegedly striking her along the way. The victim sustained injuries to her thigh and back areas. This same evening, a second incident occurred involving Cornish and another patient. Cornish was transporting the previous 26-year-old victim and a 27-yearold female victim to an appointment in Georgetown. Cornish was driving a State of Delaware transportation van at the time of the second incident. The 27-yearold victim has difficulty adjusting to traveling in vehicles and, on this occasion, began to cry. Cornish stopped the van on Zoar Road, Georgetown and confronted the 27-year-old victim. Cornish slapped the victim across the face inflicting two scratches, swelling and redness under her left eye. State Police arrested Cornish and she was charged with two counts of abuse, mistreatment or neglect a patient or resident of facility. She was released on $2,000 unsecured bond and given a no contact order with the victims along with their place of residence.
Injured in fight
On July 8 at 11:10 p.m., Seaford Police responded to Coyotes Bar in the Nylon Capital Shopping Center, for a reported fight. Officers located the victim, a 29-year-old male from Seaford, outside the bar. The victim appeared intoxicated with swelling and bleeding to his face. Officers determined that the victim had been acting in a loud manner and was involved in a verbal altercation with the defendant, Daniel L. Jackson, 30, of Seaford. At one point, the victim stumbled to the ground where Jackson struck the victim in the face several times with his fist. The victim, who was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital by Seaford Fire Department Ambulance personnel and later transported to Christiana Hospital, was treated and released for his injuries. Warrants were obtained for Jackson who was arrested by Seaford Police on July 10. Charges include second degree assault and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court 3 in Georgetown and released after posting a $5,500 bond pending a hearing in the Court of Common Pleas.
Caught in the act
On Monday, July 5, Delaware State Police investigated a suspicious person’s complaint in the 3800 block of Arthursville Road, Hartly.
State Police received information from a 68-year-old man who advised that a white male knocked on his door around 9 p.m. and advised him his garage was open. The suspect, Kyle Teeter, 21, also of Arthursville Road, was observed by the victim walking over to his neighbor’s residence. The victim was aware that his neighbors were not home so he notified the police. When State Police arrived, they observed an open door at the rear of the neighboring residence and Teeter walking inside. Teeter was observed carrying items from the residence and placing them on the deck. State Police confronted Teeter and took him into custody. A review of the property taken by Teeter from the 41-year-old victim’s residence included: Echo weedeater, Canon Powershot digital camera, jewelry, 32 inch flat screen television, Dell Dimension computer and accessories and an undisclosed amount of cash. State Police discovered that Teeter kicked open a garage door and the door at the rear of the residence in order to gain access causing approximately $500 damage. The estimated value of the items stolen and recovered totaled approximately $3,100. Teeter was charged with second degree burglary, theft, criminal mischief and third degree trespassing. He was remanded to the James T. Vaughn Correction Center in lieu of $3,850 secured bond.

Early tales influence Jones Continued from page eight
organizing presentations, slide shows and anything else that may light a spark in the eyes of a young person. History not withstanding, Jones realizes modernday Laurel has it’s challenges – long gone are the days when the town was one of the wealthiest and most influential towns in the First State. But it’s still a nice place to live, he maintains, and he doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon – if ever. “I think we have just as much to offer, but it’s not like it was. In the 1940s, I knew everyone in town, or at least everyone on my street,” he remembers. “We have drawn away from that, but it’s still a pleasant place to live. It’s just a way of life that I’ve known for so long, and I think it’s the best.” Kendal T. Jones has served his country during World War II, held many positions of authority in his hometown, raised two grown children and worked in the local job market for nearly a half a century. He also sang tenor for many years in the choir at Centenary Church and in the long defunct Seaford Symphonic Choir, a 1950s group made up mostly of employees from Seaford’s DuPont nylon plant. “That was a lot of fun because I just enjoyed the singing and the sharing,” he says. “If you enjoy that, it’s nice to be around others who enjoy that too.” These days, one of Jones’ favorite things is to just sit and contemplate life at the picturesque Phillip’s Landing, just west of Laurel. Taking a walk through the woods or watching the water and the wildlife helps the man of 83 relax and appreciate life – he is where he wants to be, and he wouldn’t change a thing. He says matter-of-factly: “I’ve had a pretty good life and I can’t complain.”

Tomatoes, a backyard garden favorite, are a treat
For a backyard gardener, picking that first ripe tomato from the oretta norr vine can be a religious experience. A tree in our yard fell victim to the ravages of winter which was unfortunate but its demise provided us with a small patch of continuous sun and a perfect spot for a small raised bed in which to grow a few tomato plants. It was all I could do not to snatch the first fruit as it turned from green to a pale orange.

Thanks to all who helped make Laurel’s 16th annual Independence Day Celebration a great event for families and kids of all ages.
Independence Day was a great event and worth the risk On behalf of Laurel Mayor and Council I want to thank everyone for believing that it was important to celebrate our nation’s birthday. Because you believed, we achieved. Thanks to all who helped make Laurel’s 16th annual Independence Day Celebration a great event for families and kids of all ages. At the top of the thank you list is Laurel Operations Manager Jamie Smith who did a magnificent job coordinating the many tasks. Public Works Director Woody Vickers and his team did a great job getting the Town in shape for the big event. Police Chief Michael Wilson and his officers deserve a round of applause for directing traffic and assisting people as needed. Carol Warrington deserves a pat on the back for seeking advice from the Bridgeville Apple Scrapple Committee and then coordinating the recruitment of the various vendors. Another unsung hero is Brent Boyce who for years has been the guy who figures out how to get electric to the vendor locations and entertainment venues. Brian Cass, Laurel High School Band director, donated 12 hours of his time to run the sound for the various entertainers. Chief Brittingham and the members of the Laurel Fire Company are to be commended for sponsoring a great, patriotic parade. Pastor Tim Dukes and his fellow clergy in the Laurel Ministerial Association got the day started off in proper fashion with an inspirational prayer breakfast at Laurel’s Georgia house restaurant. Thanks also to the entertainers who thrilled the crowd with a variety of musical selections. The Bo Dickerson Band and W.D. Whaley with their “Charlie Daniels fiddlin’ style” did a great job closing out the event. John Theofiles coordinated another outstanding fireworks display.

Bryant Richardson and his team at Morning Star Publications published another excellent promotional booklet for the event. Finally to you, our citizens and visitors, thanks for coming. We hope you all had a good time. Thanks also to those individuals, businesses, churches and organizations who donated towards the cost of the fireworks. I am pleased to report you raised the full amount and no tax money was used to pay for the fireworks. As we close the curtain on this year’s event, I’d like your ideas on how we make 2011 bigger and better. Please send your ideas to the Town’s website or to Town of Laurel, 201 Mechanic Street, Laurel, DE 19956. We already have a volunteer who plans to coordinate a car show next year. What else would you like to see or do? Believe it, and working together, we can achieve it. John J. Shwed

Couple fears that cuts in police force increases risk to officers
We have hesitated writing this letter for months. The reason? Our son is the Laurel detective and there are those who will say we have a conflict of interest. To those I say, of course we do. We worry about his safety, but we have also been lifelong residents of this community: our parents live here, our children grew up here and as they grew, we worried about their safety in this town. So our concern for our safety and the safety of our neighbors goes back

further than his time on this police force. The recent budget cuts to the police force are so appalling when we have so much crime. This little town in the recent months has had a murder and an attempted murder, numerous robberies, rapes and child abuse in one form or another. All of these take time to investigate after they have happened, but what about preventing at least some of them from happening? That cannot happen when there are not enough police to cover our town. Contrary to Frank Calio’s opinion that we need only 5 to 6 police officers, we need more police officers, not fewer. Get your head out of the sand, Frank, and anybody else who thinks we live in Mayberry. In the past, the first words out of the Mayor’s mouth and his answer to any financial problem has been to get rid of police officers and now he has finally done it. The Mayor stated that he was not firing anyone, that the officers are already gone. They are gone because they knew there were going to be cuts, so they found other employment. Already the Mayor eliminated one officer position prior to the new budget when an officer left, so we are down three officers and now they have one officer who is out sick. A fifth officer has now found other employment and I would venture to say it will not be filled either. Overtime, overtime, overtime does not save money. How much money does this town save if something horrible happens to one of our police officers? We finally have a police chief who truly cares about this town. Chief Wilson is not here to collect his second or third pension as we have had in the previous chiefs. He has turned the police department into a respectful organization, one that this town should be proud of and he should be rewarded for his accomplishments. Instead he is constantly given a hard time by the Mayor and he makes far less than our public works supervisor or other chiefs in Sussex County. What happened to charging land/slum lords for the overuse of the police? In most cases the landlords live in another town and expect the police to take care of their problems. There was a plan, maybe not the best plan, but a plan to charge these landlords for the excessive use of our police. It boiled down to making the land owner responsible for who they rent to, therefore making our town safer and richer. The choice would ultimately fall on the landlord’s shoulders. In the last year, we have asked at least two council people a question about why the bills are not being paid in a timely fashion. As with any unpaid bill, late fees
are added and coming out of our pockets. This situation has been going on for several years. In fact, some vendors will no longer take PO’s. They must be paid cash at the time of the sale. We have also asked why does all the money received, whether it is grant money or taxes or water and sewer, goes into the same pot? We are still waiting for an answer. Another big issue is the water, sewer and trash. We were told by the previous town manager that the increase in these utilities were to take care of other bills, not just for the utilities. He in fact told the council that they could no longer do this. Our Mayor and Council members were increasing the utilities to keep from raising taxes, but look now, not only are our utilities going up another $12, but our taxes are going up 9%. The City of Milford just raised their utilities to $1.50. The fireworks and the Fourth of July celebration cost Laurel more than $35,000, according to WBOC. Is this good use of our money or are we just entitled to spend that money because we want it and it makes us feel good? Companies have been forced to cut back. Individuals have been forced to cut back. This town should cut every way it can, including traditions. That money would have kept one police officer for a year. Our Mayor chose to spend it in one day for tradition and not for the safety of this town. Our Mayor and Council members purchased, in the last few years, laptop computers so they would not have to go to the town office for council business. With a town this size and with financial problems, was that good use of our tax dollars? Raising taxes and utilities and eliminating police officers is just too easy. Our Mayor and Council are not looking out for our best interests. They have failed to bring businesses here while Delmar and Seaford continue to grow. They have, without caring what business owners or homeowners have to say about the reduction in our police force, done as they wanted and just made our town more unsafe. It is time for a change. It is time to organize a group to take back our town. If any of you care about the plight of this town, please call us at 875-7561. For those who care but cannot get involved, please remember the next election. Please make sure you are registered to vote. Then vote the mayor and council out of office. It is time we have a mayor and council who will listen to what we have to say. Mike and Cathy Calloway

Financial Regulation Bill lacks real reform, will create problems By Tom Donohue
President and CEO, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Our elected officials in Washington have struck again. Just months after passing a tax-raising, job-killing health care bill, Congress is about to approve financial regulatory reform legislation that, ironically, lacks actual reform. Proponents of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act will undoubtedly hail it as a triumph of Main Street over Wall Street, but they have it backward. It will be small businesses and families shouldering the brunt of this legislation through higher fees, less choice and fewer opportunities to responsibly access credit. So what does the Dodd-Frank Act do? For one thing, it calls for more than 350 regulatory rulemakings, 47 studies, 74 reports and counting. This tsunami of new rules and studies will cause tremendous uncertainty, making it harder for businesses to raise capital, make investments and create jobs. To put this effort into context, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act required 16 rulemakings and 6 studies, which took more than two years to complete. In the meantime, businesses must contend with a bill of which Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT), one of its chief architects, remarked, “No one will know until this is actually in place how it works.” If that’s not a recipe for confusion, uncertainty, and litigation, I don’t know what is! The complications don’t end there. The Chamber believes that you can’t have real reform without reforming the regulators. So it comes as a disappointment that the Dodd-Frank Act creates even more regulatory agencies on top of a fundamentally flawed, outdated system, instead of fixing the system itself. These new bodies include the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a sprawling new bureaucracy with unchecked and far-reaching powers that could potentially regulate hundreds of thousands of nonfinancial businesses. The Dodd-Frank Act will also put American financial firms at a disadvantage by imposing rules and regulations that haven’t been or won’t be adopted globally. In a world where capital can move easily, it will go to where it is welcome, safe and can generate a decent return. This new legislation is the equivalent of a “keep out” sign on the front lawn, forcing legitimate business activity to foreign markets that are hungry for additional capital. This will increase the cost of capital here at home, and could further put the squeeze on small businesses. While the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act marks a sad day for the U.S. economy, jobs and the future of our capital markets, the fight is far from over. The Chamber
will continue to work vigorously through all available avenues — regulatory, legislative and legal — to guarantee appropriate implementation of the bill and to ensure that we have the most efficient, transparent and well-regulated capital markets in the world.

When somebody tells you nothing is impossible, ask him to dribble a football. ~ Author Unknown
The $2.99 special A couple went to breakfast at a restaurant where the seniors’ special was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99. “Sounds good,” the wife says. “But I don’t want the eggs.” “Then, I’ll have to charge you three dollars and forty-nine cents because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warns. “You mean I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?” the wife asks. “Yes,” states the waitress. “I’ll take the special then,” she replies. “How do you want your eggs?” the waitress asks. “Raw and in the shell.” She takes the eggs home and bakes a cake.
