Schools say equalization funding not always equal State’s formula can make poor districts poorer, they complain By Lynn R. Parks School districts in western Sussex County stand to lose hundreds of thousands of dollars next fiscal year under the state’s equalization funding formula. The formula, designed to equalize funding among school districts, in fact can do the opposite in areas where property taxes are paid based on old assessments. This is according to a March report issued by the Milford School District. In Sussex County, property taxes are based on assessments made in 1974. According to Milford superintendent, Robert Smith, and chief financial officer, Mark Dufendach, the state’s equalization funding formula is based on property values. When a district’s property values go up, an indication that the wealth of the district is increasing, its funding under the formula goes down. But increases in property values do not necessarily mean increases in local property taxes. In Sussex County, housing prices have more than doubled since 2000. But with no reassessment since 1974, no one is paying taxes on those increasing values. “Districts cannot realize a real increase in local tax dollars…unless the assessed value of that property also changes,” Smith and Dufendach said in their report. Last year, the state legislature approved spending $172,000 to keep equalization funding in four districts at the previous year’s level. Lake Forest, Milford, Seaford and Woodbridge school districts received the funding. Mike Jackson, director of budget development for the state Office of Management and Budget, said that the state’s Joint Finance Committee is considering another “hold harmless” provision for the upcoming school year, to Continued on page 4

Encouraging HIV testing, discouraging drug abuse By Tony E. Windsor A local church is providing an outreach in Laurel to promote HIV testing and alcohol and drug prevention. As part of National HIV Testing Day, the ReTemp Development Center, a division of the Rehoboth Temple of Praise Church, will host the event in Market Square Park on Saturday, June 23, from noon to 4 p.m. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Representatives of ReTemp Development Center attended a recent meeting of the Laurel Town Council to request use of the park for the event. Center spokesman, Lem Wilson, said the goal of the event is to improve the quality of life in the Laurel area. He said the goal is to educate the public on the importance of being tested for HIV at a time when it is crucial. “People tend to think that AIDS and HIV is not as prevalent as it once was,” he said. “The truth is, it is even more so now.” Wilson said ReTemp Center representatives will pass out information on testing and refer anyone who seeks to be tested to the Rehoboth Temple of Prayer, which offers state-sanctioned
testing. Wilson said that the event will also promote drug and alcohol abuse prevention. “Our youth today are dying and going to jail and simply have no ambition,” he said. “We need to help get education out to our children.” Along with the HIV testing information and other awareness and educational opportunities, there will be music and a barbecue, Wilson said. National HIV Testing Day (NHTD) is June 27. It is an annual campaign sponsored by the National Association of People with AIDS to encourage atrisk individuals to receive voluntary HIV counseling and testing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 180,000 to 280,000 people nationwide are HIV-positive but are unaware of their status. The CDC says that HIV counseling and testing enables people with HIV to take steps to protect their own health and that of their partners, and helps people who test negative get the information they need to stay uninfected.

Run benefits Special Olympics The Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics was run on June 7. The run began at 6:15 a.m. at the state line in Delmar with six runners from the Delmar Police Department, who raised about $4,000. The western leg, which covers 33 miles from Delmar to Harrington, was started with Delmar Chief Hal Saylor running the first mile, and other members of his department covered the next five miles. Other departments participating in the Torch Run were Laurel’s, members of which covered two miles; Seaford’s, members of which covered six miles; Bridgeville’s, members of which covered two miles; and Greenwood’s, members of which covered two miles. The remaining
15 miles were covered by members of Delaware State Police Troop 5, Bridgeville, and representatives of the State Fire Marshal's Office. The western leg has been part of the Torch Run for approximately ten years. The entire Torch Run covered 162 miles, ending at the University of Delaware on Friday for the opening ceremonies of the Special Olympics. All 162 miles are run by members of law enforcement agencies from throughout the state. Saylor of the Delmar Police Department has run the first mile since the western leg began. Lt. Robert Remo from the Delmar PD solicits the donations with assistance from Ed Ferro, police dispatcher.

Harley's Heroes Tour locally to include tribute VA Benefit Counseling Provided Free of Charge by Disabled American Veterans Military veterans in the Delmarva area can receive free counseling and assistance with their government benefits when a Disabled American Veterans Mobile Service Office rolls into Harley-Davidson of Seaford on Saturday, June 16, as part of its 2007 Harley's Heroes Tour. Hours for the free counseling services are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the stage area just north of the Harley Davidson dealership at 10:30 a.m. will be a special tribute to the memories of Cory Palmer and Rick James, two Seaford military men killed in action in Iraq last year. The City of Seaford and state Rep. Danny Short will be dedicating street signs designating where the two young Marines grew up in Seaford. The signs have their names, the Marine Corp emblem and thier unit insignia with the street names of the families. The signs will be dedicated then and installed on the respective streets on Monday morning. Harley-Davidson of Seaford will also hold its third bi-annual Troop Ride Saturday, June 16, at 11 a.m. which benefits Operation Uplink, connecting troops deployed overseas with their families at home. The ride is $10 per person and includes a Harley's Heroes pin along with continental brunch, an escorted ride to the Federalsburg VFW Bike Show and special parking at the show. The 2007 Harley's Heroes Tour will include stops throughout the U.S. including over 150 Harley-Davidson dealerships where benefits assistance will be offered to veterans of all ages in communities where they live. The mission of the Harley's Heroes Tour, made possible with the help of a $1 million grant from the Harley-Davidson Foundation, is to provide access to benefits for all veterans and show appreciation for their service and sacrifice to our country. While on the 2007 tour, the DAV MSOs will provide benefits counseling to those veterans who suffer from service-connected injuries but may never have filed a claim for benefits or have found it difficult working with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Nature lover wanted Phillips Landing open to all By Lynn R. Parks In a picture that accompanied a frontpage story in Laurel’s State Register newspaper in July 1962, Harley G. Hastings is shown in a three-piece, pin-striped suit. But that, says his son, was not how he was most comfortable. “Dad was more at home in a pair of bib overalls than anything else,” says Rudolph Hastings, Bethel. “His whole life, he loved hunting and fishing.”
The elder Hastings is honored in the State Register story as “one of the state’s most distinguished and successful citizens,” who throughout his life “maintained a deep love and true concern for the outof-doors.” The story continues: “He derives tremendous pleasure and satisfaction in walking over his beautiful woodland at the junction of Broad Creek and the Nanticoke River. It further pleases him to see the many thousands of people

keep equalization funding at last year’s levels for districts that would otherwise lose funding. He said that the committee has not yet determined which districts would be included in the provision. The provision would be part of the state’s 2007-2008 budget, which has to be approved by July 1. Donna Blackburn, director of administrative services, finances and payroll for the Seaford School District, said that the district stands to lose $200,000 in equalization funding in the 2007-2008 fiscal year. The district’s budget for next year takes that loss into account, she said. “We have built our budget on the assumption that we will not receive that money,” she said. “We have to.” Blackburn said that the loss of $200,000, about five percent of the equalization funding received by the district, impacts the district’s discretionary budget across the board. “Every budget line can be impacted,” she said. That includes the district’s set-aside account, where money is saved for capital improvement projects and replacement of educational materials, including text books. Blackburn said that if the “hold harmless” provision comes through again this year, the district’s budget will be reworked to include the money. Among the projects that could benefit from the increased funding is the light replacement at the football stadium. The lights that are there now have been deemed unsafe to use. Cost to replace them has been estimated at $200,000. But even if the “hold harmless” provi-

sion comes through again this year, that is not the answer, Blackburn said. “The equalization formula is based on reassessment, and that’s what has to happen for the formula to work,” she said. “Otherwise, we need a different formula.” Jackson with the budget office said that there has been talk in Legislative Hall about how to fix the equalization funding process so that it actually works. “But a lot of fixing it has to do with reassessment,” he added, something that is politically unpopular. Eddy Parker, director of assessment for Sussex County, said that there is no discussion on the county level about a reassessment. “The county’s position has always been that we don’t necessarily oppose a reassessment, but we feel that the cost should be shared by the state,” he said. About 80 percent of the taxes collected by the county go to the state’s school districts, he added. The county estimates the cost of a Sussex-wide reassessment at between $5 million and $7 million, Parker said. Like Blackburn, Laurel School District’s director of finance, Bill Hitch, would like to see the equalization funding formula revised. “As it is right now, it really doesn’t make everybody equal,” he said. Laurel stands to lose about $13,000 of its $2 million in equalization funds in the coming school year. According to the Milford School District report, the Woodbridge School District could lose more than $102,000 in equalization funding, if the legislature does not pass the “hold harmless” provision. The Delmar School District could lose more than $60,000, it says.

fishing, boating, swimming and picnicking at the Phillips Landing Recreational Area, which, without charge, he leased to the Game and Fish Commission several years ago.” Harley Hastings was born in 1891 and died in 1969. According to a history of the recreational area compiled by the state, he leased Phillips Landing, 2 and 1/2 acres at the confluence of Broad Creek and the Nanticoke River, to the state in 1960. In 1970, after Harley’s death, his family sold 737 acres, including Phillips Landing and surrounding property, to the state. That land, along with 925 acres the state had already purchased, became part of a public recreational area. The Robert L. Graham Nanticoke River Wildlife Area, of which Hastings’ Phillips Landing property is a part, now contains nearly 4,500 acres. “The state wanted to change the name of Phillips Landing, and put Dad’s name to it,” says Rudolph Hastings. “But he wouldn’t have any part of that. He said that that name was history and he wanted it left that way.” At last month’s commemoration of a marker at Phillips Landing recognizing the 400th anniversary of Capt. John Smith’s exploration of the Nanticoke River, state Sen. Robert Venables recognized the beauty of Phillips Landing, and said that it was little changed since he had fished there as a young man. But he credited the Phillips family, with roots in the area that go back to the 1700s, for donating the land to the state. That did not sit well with Rudolph

Hastings. “After my father died, we sold the land just as it was to the state,” he says. “That was my father’s wishes. My father believed that everybody had a right to go down there.” “The preservation and conservation of Delaware’s natural woodlands, rivers and wildlife have always been of primary interest to [Hastings],” the State Register article says. Today, the Phillips Landing Recreational Area has two boat ramps, one into Broad Creek and the other into the Nanticoke River. The wildlife area of which it is a part allows hunting, fishing and horseback riding. The area also has 4 miles of trails.

MORNING STAR ✳ JUNE 14 - 20, 2007
Delmarva Christian celebrates third graduation This year's graduation at Delmarva Christian High School was a time of reflection, encouragement, and celebration. With more than 600 family, friends, and well-wishers, the 2007 graduates received their diplomas in the Draper Gymnasium on the school's campus. "The Lord has blessed us in so many ways," said DCHS Principal Scott Kemerling. "In only three short years we have enjoyed a total of 50 student graduates. The number has grown from 6 in our first year, to 17 last year, and now 27 this year. And, as the numbers increase, we see the students continually raising the bar." Commencement exercises began promptly at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 25. The program began with DCHS National Honor Society students presenting symbols of the Christian faith while fellow students and All-State Chorus members Kent Embleton and Lauren Henry sang a beautiful rendition of "The Prayer." Following the processional, Bible teacher Mr. David Hurst introduced the 2007 salutatorian, Miss Alisa Fowler and English teacher Mr. Joe Scott introduced the 2007 valedictorian Miss Jessica Spicer. "Initially, I wondered why in the world God would make me change schools with only two years left," said Spicer as she made her valedictorian address. "But, God knows us better than we know ourselves and provides for us as such. A week later I couldn't imagine myself being anywhere
else." Spicer’s message continued with words of thanks to her teachers, family, and friends and concluded with the life lessons she has come to realize. "More than anything else I have learned over the last two years at DCHS, I think one thing God has been instilling into my heart, is how I can't possibly earn His love. As Paul said in Romans 5:8, 'While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.' He chose to place me where I am on the globe and in life, let me go through what I've gone through, and blessed me immensely when I don't deserve it, because He loves me," she concluded. Prior to receiving diplomas, the seniors were recognized for their accomplishments and presented awards. This year's Royal Service Award was given to Master Tommy Munro who has demonstrated the most consistent and positive Christian witness. The prestigious Royal of the Year award was presented to Miss Sarah Gooss who best exemplifies the mission of DCHS; to proclaim the Gospel by preparing students spiritually, academically, and physically to know and to do God's will for their lives. With the addition of the Class of 2007, Delmarva Christian High School has 96 percent of their graduates successfully pursuing college degrees. Graduates have been accepted to col-

leges and universities from all across the United States. "Our first year had a true pioneering spirit. Our second year was characterized by our students stepping up and stepping out; that is, stepping up in their faith and
stepping out in sharing that faith with others," said Mr. Kemerling. "This year has seen our students take their faith, their academic achievements, and their service to others to even higher levels."

Latin flavors for Dad, the prince of the grill Some things just go together: bread and butter, bacon and eggs, spaghetti and meatballs, Father’s Day and grilling. You won’t find a food article about Father’s Day that includes a recipe for chicken soup or pot roast. It’s all about the barbecue. I suppose that’s because even the humblest of dads considers himself at the very least a prince of the grill, a backyard Beethoven composing a symphony of burgers and steaks. It’s always a good idea when searching for recipes for the grill to seek out the best. Steve Raichlen is someone I’ve written about many times. His barbeque cookbooks are all best sellers and his grilling tips should be memorized by anyone who owns even the tiniest hibachi. I’m sure I’ll be writing about him again soon, but today I want to focus on that culinary cutie, Bobby Flay. Three of this Food Network star’s cookbooks are on the subject - “It’s hard to resist entertaining outside when the weather gets warm,” he says. A French Culinary Institute grad, he takes grilling a burger as seriously as baking a soufflé. Flay’s tips include: Be organized — do as much as you can ahead of time Be a grill psychologist — learn its personality (its hot and cold spots). Recently, he’s been experimenting with Latin flavors as in these examples from the backyard barbecue menu he created for Epicurious. Garlic-Mustard Grilled Beef Skewers Serves 6. 1/4 cup whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves 2 teaspoons Spanish paprika 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 pounds of beef tenderloin Whisk together first 10 ingredients in a small bowl; cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours before using. Heat grill to high. Cut beef lengthwise in half, then cut the halves lengthwise in half again. Slice crosswise to make 24
The Practical Gourmet
By Loretta Knorr equal pieces. Skewer 2 pieces of beef onto 6-inch wooden skewers that have been soaked in cold water for 30 minutes, keeping the meat together at one end of the skewer. Place the skewers in a baking dish or on a baking sheet, pour half of the glaze over the meat, and turn to coat. Grill the meat, turning once and brushing with the remaining glaze, for 4 to 6 minutes until golden brown, slightly charred, and cooked to medium-rare. Transfer the skewers to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature. Note: If you prefer to use a less expensive cut of meat, this recipe works very well with regular sirloin tips. Leave them in the marinade for a few hours. Grilled Corn on the Cob with Garlic Butter, Fresh Lime and Queso Fresco Serves 4 to 6 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly softened 4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped Salt and freshly ground black pepper 8 ears corn, silks removed but husks left on, soaked in cold water for at least 10 minutes 2 fresh limes, quartered 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco or mild feta Combine the butter and garlic in a food processor or with a mixer until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat your grill to high. Place the corn on the grill, close the grill hood, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until steamed through and hot but still crisp (test by carefully piercing with a knife). Unwrap the husks from the corn and immediately spread or brush with garlic butter. Squeeze the limes on top and sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.

Pay day was usually on Friday and the pay was cash in an envelope; checks came along much later. One half-hour for lunch, 10-minute breaks; yes, 10 minutes! You were paid by the hour but piece work was how you made your money. Etta Morris was there for 35 years and Evelyn Collins was there for 46 years. And there were many of the other long-time employees. Evelyn and Katherine were the floor ladies and for the most part everyone got along together very well and each remembers her job like it was yesterday. Emma Wootten was a “utility operator” and Etta Morris worked on zippers and cuffs. Hilda Pusey particularly remembers the Christmas dinners. “They were a good company,” she said, and that was the overall sentiment of all the group. Pusey also recalls the day President Kennedy was assassinated. Her boss, Mr. David, told her not to tell the rest of the employees until the end of the day because they would not be able to work. Emma Wootten is always good for at least one funny story and she didn’t let me down. “The union was nothing,” said Emma. “Once we all decided to have a work stoppage. Everyone cut their machines off at the same time and everyone was to go to Mr. Cohen’s office. When I got there I was the only one on strike.” Mr. Cohen also said they couldn’t put air conditioning in the office because all the women would be staying there.

Another great part of this story was the fact that many of the “girls” put notes in the military apparel during the war and corresponded with the soldiers, helping to keep up spirits. Sadly, in the 1970s and early 1980s, rumors started that work was going overseas and finally it did with little real warning, except the fact that apparel was brought to the factory from overseas and a U.S. label put on them. Says Annabelle Wilson, “The government sold out the whole garment industry. The union did not tell. It was a sad time.” Yes, since around 1985 the sewing factory has been gone. The walks through Laurel during their half-hour lunch breaks; cars lined up and down 4th and Market streets; factory employees rallying around local causes with donations; working in the summer heat and with gloves on at their sewing machines during the winter; working a little faster and putting in overtime at night to get orders out, and to help the war cause. Employees there contributed greatly to Laurel. And to America. My mother-in-law, Helen Lowe, who passed away in 1964 at age 50, was one of those employees. I know she was a hard worker, and one hour with these ladies made me appreciate her even more. Thanks to the ladies of Laurel Manufacturing Company for sharing another great part of Laurel’s history. Believe me, they are a big part of it. As Barbara Parker says, “I wish it was still there. I enjoyed it and still have a lot of memories.”

DDA ensures buyers get the right amount of fuel Summer travel started in earnest on Memorial Day weekend at the same time that fuel prices were skyrocketing. Whether the high fuel costs this summer will put a dent in consumer travels remains to be seen. Michael Scuse, Delaware Secretary of Agriculture, said, "The Delaware Department of Agriculture (DDA) cannot help consumers with the price of fuel or how far they travel, but what we can do is help them get the right amount of fuel for the money they spend. DDA's dedicated Weights and Measures inspectors travel through the state each day protecting consumers from fraud." Delaware has more than 8,000 fuel pumps that are annually tested for accuracy each fiscal year (July 1- June 30) by the inspectors. To date, in this fiscal year, 6,500 have been tested and the rest are in the process of being tested. Consumers can tell if the pump has been inspected for accuracy by looking for this inspection seal on the pump. Steve Connors, DDA Weights and Measures Section Administrator said, "I believe the majority of fuel sellers are playing by the rules. My staff has found that with most problems, it's an honest mistake and sellers will do what is fair. Sometimes, however, honest people have not maintained their equipment, and this causes inaccuracies in measurements of fuel pumped.

The bottom line is, don't be afraid to report problems to the DDA Weights and Measures Section. DDA can take steps to ensure the seller honestly represents the amount of fuel being sold or can order sales to stop." Consumers who think they have been defrauded should first check the inspection seal on the pump and then call the DDA Weights and Measures Section: (800) 282-8685 (DE only), (302) 6984500 or 302-698-4602. Please provide the following information to assist the staff's investigation of the complaint: seller’s name; date of sale; location of pump; buyer’s name; and nature of the problem.
State courts and judicial branches closed on July 13 Pursuant to Administrative Directive Number 161 (see attached) Chief Justice Myron T. Steele will close the Courts and related Judicial Branch agencies in Delaware on Friday, July 13. The Chief Justice noted in his Administrative Directive Number 161 that courts were unable to observe the official day of mourning on Jan. 2, for President Gerald R. Ford because of late notice by the executive branch and previously scheduled court calendars. The Judicial Branch has chosen to honor the memory of President Ford on the day closest to his birthday of July 14.

Education Delmar students receive nearly $2 million in scholarship money By Donna Dukes-Huston Delmar High School held its annual Senior Academic Awards ceremony May 22 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. A total of $594,000 in scholarships was awarded to members of the senior class from local and state organizations as well as civic clubs. This amount does not take into consideration, however, the additional money in merit-based scholarships that many students received. An additional $1,315,000 has been awarded to Delmar seniors from colleges and universities, according to Gene Kline, senior guidance counselor at Delmar High School. This puts the senior class at just over $1.9 million, and the money continues to roll in. Kline predicts that Delmar seniors will receive over $2 million in the end. New scholarship opportunities, such as SEEDS, have helped to make this possible. This is a program offered by Delaware Technical and Community College and the University of Delaware Associate Program.
Delaware students who earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 and have no criminal record qualify for free tuition for two years. This can provide a savings of at least $4,600 per year. "It has opened the door for many Delaware kids who would otherwise not have gone to college," Kline said. Eight Delmar students will be taking advantage of this opportunity in the fall, according to Kline. In his 18 years in the guidance department, Kline has seen both the amount of scholarship money Delmar students receive as well as the number of these seniors accepted into college increase substantially. "In 1990 only about 22 percent of our graduating seniors went to college and they received around $40,000-$60,000," Kline said. This year 78 percent of the senior class has been accepted to a two- or four-year college, according to Kline. This is based on a graduating class of 118 students. Kline also reported that a total of 181 college applications were submitted by our seniors with 170 acceptances, a 94 percent acceptance rate.

OBITUARIES Harlan E. White, 69 Harlan E. White of Blacksburg, Va., passed away June 4, 2007 at Carilion New River Valley Medical Center. He was a son of James and Anna White of Seaford.

What must I do to be saved?
Acknowledge your sin and place your trust in Christ. All who place their trust in Christ in this way are adopted as Godâ€™s children. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. â€” Romans 3:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. â€” Romans 6:23 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. â€” Romans 5:8 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. â€” Romans
In Loving Memory Darvin Sonny Marino Nov. 21, 1936 - June 23, 2005

I am so sad that I cant, but I have the memories of our conversations and visits. I know you liked to be called Darvin, but I still liked calling you Sonny. We love you & miss you. You will be in our hearts forever. - Patty & Henry

the numbers of Abbotts were growing. They wanted their family to stay close, stay connected, and stay together. So they started an annual Abbott family Reunion.

MORNING STAR âœł JUNE 14 - 20, 2007
Arts & Entertainment Possum Point to perform Anne Frank Possum Point Players is presenting "The Diary of Anne Frank," June 15 through June 17, at Possum Hall in Georgetown. Anne Frank, a Jewish girl in 1940s Amsterdam, wrote her diary while in hiding with her family and others. The published book "Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl" is required reading in many schools, and has been translated into more than 50 languages. Possum Point Players is presenting a dramatization by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, an award-winning production. "I think this is a great show for us to have at this time of the year," said Possum member Cassandra Petersen, "With summer vacation just beginning, a lot of people are looking for a quick diversion for the whole family, and this is perfect. It's a good story for adults and kids, told from a 12-year-old's perspective!" In actual fact, the Franks were in hiding for just over two years, with their stay bracketed by summer. Lauren Baker of Georgetown, playing the title character, is a senior at Sussex Central High School. She has the perspective to look back to those ages, and also uses the book to help "flesh out" each scene she plays. Catherine Baker, Lauren's mother in real life and playing Anne's mother on stage, has also been reading the biography of Anne Frank.
The story intertwines the lives of eight people in hiding, with the two people who knew where they were and provided them with news and supplies. In actual fact, only one of the 10, the Dutch woman Miep Gies - portrayed on the Possum stage by Carreen Kouts of Seaford - who risked her life helping them, is still living today. The cast has been able to research the real lives of these people, and there are ample websites and books to aid them. John Hulse of Rehoboth Beach, who plays Mr. Dussel, another individual hiding in the Attic, does a lot of research online, and brings information to rehearsal with him. John Marino of Lewes, as Otto Frank, Anne's father, commented that, "While factual, the perspective of this one girl colors the characters," and Catherine Baker of Georgetown, added, "John [Marino] and I play her parents, and it's clear, through the things she wrote, that she was closer to her father than to her mother." Tickets are available by calling the Possum Ticketline at 856-4560. Performances are June 15 and 16 at 8 p.m., and on June 17 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $16, or $15 for Senior Citizens and students with valid ID. Possum Point Players is sponsored in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts.
Woodcarving show comes to Del Techâ€™s Owens Campus Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus, Georgetown, will be hosting a first-of-its-kind event designed to help local woodcarvers showcase their works in front of the public. The inaugural Woodcarvers and Wildlife Art Exhibit is sponsored by the Owens Campus' Adult Plus program and is scheduled for Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16, at the Carter Partnership Center. Greenwood area carver Robert Culver helped initiate the event, in conjunction with Adult Plus personnel. While he holds no aspirations of the event being anything even remotely close to the annual Ward World Championship of Wildfowl Carving held in Ocean City, Md., each April, he does point to that event as a model of what to strive for. Culver said it takes about six months to make the larger pieces in his collection and his works generally sell for between $50 for smaller items, all the way to $1,200 for his larger works of art. He is expecting between 10 and 15 carvers to be part of this year's inaugural show, a good starting point for future

Tandem paint & quarter horse shows at state fairgrounds A four-day period in June will see an unusual combination of horse shows at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington. That's when Chick's will host both an American Quarter Horse Association and an American Paint Horse Show. The shows will run simultaneously Thursday through Sunday, June 14, 15, 16 and 17. This is the first year Chick's has sponsored the shows in tandem. Both shows test the horse and rider's ability in dozens of different classes and feature events such as trail riding, barrel racing, showmanship and horsemanship. There are also halter classes that judge horses on balance, muscling and breed characteristics. There are classes for ex-
hibitors of all ages and experience in youth, amateur and open divisions. The shows are family-friendly participation events, and spectators may come to watch free of charge. Those who exhibit their horses at an American Quarter Horse or Paint Horse show earn points that turn into awards or cash at the end of the year. By competing, exhibitors and horses can also qualify for the year end local, regional and national championships. Horse owners interested in entering either of the two June shows in Harrington may call Wayne or Amanda Diamond at 302-284-2296 after 7 p.m. or see the web site: www.chickshorseshows.com.

This summer's schedule is as follows: Thursday, June 28, 2007, Happy Feet: In the great nation of Emperor Penguin, deep in Antarctica, you're no-
body unless you can sing, which is unfortunate for Mumble, because he is the worst singer in the world. Luckily, Mumble has a different talent; he can tap dance in a way that would make Fred Astaire jealous. When Mumble is banished from his penguin colony, he finds another colony of penguins who don't mind his toe-tapping ways. Together with his new friends, Mumble travels on an adventure across the vast landscape of ice and ultimately learns that being true to oneself is the best way to be.

Set to open Friday, June 22, at Second Street Players Riverfront Theatre, the winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, "Dinner With Friends," reflects people and situations everyone has experienced or observed from a distance. The contemporary adult drama features four best friends who expect to age gracefully together, enjoying long, leisurely gourmet meals, fine wine, evenings at the beach and watching their children grow into well-adjusted adults. The dialogue created by playwright Donald Margulies is described as "sober, wise and extremely funny." The awardwinning writer is praised as someone who writes about relationships with intelligence and spiky humor. Valorie Jarrell and Ed Teti play the couple who seems to have the recipe for a successful marriage. Their characters take trips to Italy to learn primal secrets from octogenarian cooks and they show their caring by creating feasts for friends. Jarrell said "Dinner With Friends" is especially realistic in showing people who almost never say what they are really thinking while still observing modern

We are writing to express our serious concerns about H.R. 2337, the “Energy Policy Reform and Revitalization Act,” recently introduced by Congressman Rahall (D-WV), chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee. Specifically, the focus of our concern is Subtitle D of the bill, Ensuring Safety of Wildlife with Respect to Wind Energy. While we strongly support the development of requirements for proper siting of wind energy facilities and for assessing wildlife impacts from wind turbines prior to construction and monitoring and mitigating significant impacts after construction, we believe the overall effect of this subtitle will be to essentially prohibit or substantially limit the generation of electricity from new and existing windenergy generating facilities throughout the country. The bill requires the Director of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) to promulgate regulations within 180 days after enactment of the act to establish minimum standards for siting, construction, monitoring and adaptive management that must be satisfied by all wind projects and prohibits the construction or operation of any wind project unless the director issues a certificate of compliance with those standards. It is highly unlikely that the USFWS can promulgate regulations within the 180day timeframe. Given resource and staffing constraints imposed by severe budget cuts over the past several years, it is much more likely that these regulations will take years to develop. Even existing wind energy facilities will have to cease operation until a certificate of compliance is issued. This requirement will effectively shut down the wind energy industry in the U.S. at a time when there is a critical need for renewable energy alternatives to address the rapidly advancing impacts of global climate change, which is known to be causing significant ecological disruption and contributing to species dislocation and extinction. The bill imposes criminal penalties for anyone who constructs or operates a wind turbine that is not in compliance with the regulations once they are promulgated. This provision would apply even to individuals, such as farmers and homeowners, and seems draconian given the nature of the offense. The federal government should be supporting the development of wind energy rather than imposing harsh penalties and burdensome and unnecessary regulations. Several assessments of the impacts of wind energy operations on wildlife have already been issued. A 2005 report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) concluded, “It does not appear that wind power is responsible for a significant number of birds deaths.” Another report issued by the National Academy of Sciences on May 3, 2007, found that, “Clearly, bird deaths caused by wind turbines are a minute fraction of ...
total anthropogenic bird deaths — less than 0.003 percent [three of every 100,000] in 2003.” We support the development of reasonable and appropriate regulations for siting, assessing and monitoring the impacts of wind energy facilities on wildlife. We do not believe the provisions contained in Subtitle D are the right approach. Existing requirements under the federal Endangered Species Act and other state and federal wildlife programs contain adequate authority to provide interim standards and guidelines until more specific requirements are established. New and existing wind energy projects should not be halted while these regulations are developed. We encourage you to oppose Subtitle D as proposed in H.R. 2337, to support the development of reasonable regulations for siting, assessing and monitoring of wind energy facilities and to pursue federal research programs and incentives to facilitate the deployment of this important clean energy alternative. Mark Martell President Delaware Audubon
This letter was also signed by: Rashmi Rangan, president, League of Women Voters of Delaware; Chad Tolman, leadership council, Coalition for Climate Change Study and Action; Maryanne McGonegal, secretary, Common Cause of Delaware; Joan Deaver, president, Citizens for a Better Sussex; Michael Riska, executive director, Delaware Nature Society; Bill Zak, president, Citizens for Clean Power; Coordinating Council, Green Party of Delaware; Sally O’Byrne, president, and Bill Stewart, conservation chair, Delmarva Ornithological Society; Nicholas DiPasquale, president, Kent County Conservancy.
Lobbyist likes sports betting Sussex, my beautiful Sussex, where has the love gone? Understandably, Sussex County is the largest county east of the Mississippi and a very beautiful one at that. Sussex complements our wonderful state by being one of three counties. Why then, are Sussex Countians not entitled to sports betting parlors? For years New Castle and Kent have enjoyed the luxury of racinos where we have had to drive several miles for our entertainment. Is it because the owners of Delaware Park own parlors in Cambridge and Ocean City, Md., which forces us to spend our money in Maryland? Why then are our lawmakers not addressing the problem by adding parlors in Sussex? Three parlors at strategic locations will produce as much sports betting revenue as any of the three major tracks. I have written a bill for the legislature to satisfy everyone. It is a win-win situation if it were to be introduced. Some of the bill addresses paying the state, tracks and horsemen. The parlors would even pay an extra five-percent to the tracks and horsemen for the privilege of operating in Sussex. Why is Sussex still being shut out? Are we not worthy citizens as well? Or is the good ol’ boy system still at work?
By not having parlors in place the state will lose an estimated $11 million dollars a year, which will only increase as slots will be decreasing. The horsemen will lose $3.6 million for purses in the first year alone. When Maryland goes to slots within the next two years (because of their $1.5 billion shortfall), I estimate Delaware will lose in the neighborhood of $100 million from its positive revenue. Sports betting is the answer. Sussex County parlors are the answer. We are sitting on a gold mine, being the only state east of the Mississippi to have this right. Ask any businessman if he would like to own a business, only one of its kind within thousands of miles, that the public will flock to and buy his product. You may ask who am I to make these statements. I am a retired banker who has been retained by a sports betting firm for several years now. It is my job to know these numbers. I have personally been a thoroughbred handicapper (playing in numerous national tournaments) and a sports better for years. I am also a horseman. But foremost, I am a Delawarean, born in Wilmington and raised in Laurel. I have owned and operated businesses in Dover and Rehoboth. In all due respect to the present governor, she is out of touch. The people of this state want sports betting. Every day of the week, our largest distribution paper, the News Journal, prints the morning line odds on ball games taking place throughout the country. Every day! These same odds are the starting point for illegal bookmakers who operate within our state without taxation. They have been operating for as long as I can remember. Of course the governor is unaware of this activity. Her answer to betting is to extend slot machine hours. Walk into any racino between 2 and 5 a.m. and see if you can count 10 patrons. I wonder how much influence that has on our youth? This governor must understand that her economic policies have failed and she doesn’t understand the value of sports betting. If this opportunity is missed, it will severely increase other hardships on our working citizens. Sports betting will eliminate those fee increases that you’re presently reading about and that may be passed. I urge all Delawareans to call your legislators and stand up for sports betting at the tracks and parlors in Sussex. The education of my grandchildren and all children depend on it. Gary Ward Delaware Sportsbetting Seaford
Bill is reasonable, humane In 1994 I had a close friend who was dying of AIDS in a Delaware hospital. I was his medical power-of-attorney and had him admitted to the hospital in those days before HIV therapies improved. My friend was estranged from his family, some of whom actually thought AIDS was divine punishment for being gay. That difficult situation was made worse when the charge nurse refused me access
to my friend’s chart, thus hampering my ability to make informed medical decisions. A sympathetic doctor’s order the next day allowed me chart access and the nurse apologized. It might otherwise have required court intervention. I personally also know of at least 12 Delaware patients whose living wills were ignored. Of them, two were actually “coded” and attached to a ventilator. Delaware House Bill 167 would require hospitals and nursing homes to honor medical powers-of-attorney, advanced directives and related documents. It would also allow an adult patient to name an individual as his requested visitor. This would allow same-gender partners, for example, to visit in situations like ICU’s where “family only” rules now bar them. House Bill 167 is not only reasonable. It is humane and affirms the patient’s right to make his own health-care decisions. Douglas Marshall-Steele Milton

Man faces charges after Pursuit A Wilmington man faces numerous charges, including DUI and Reckless Dri-
ving after he led state police on a pursuit the morning of June 5 that lasted approximately ten and half miles. At approximately 1:23 a.m. a trooper clocked a green Pontiac Grand AM traveling ninety-five miles per hour in a posted fifty-five mile per hour zone on SR 1 (Coastal Highway) south of Milton. The Trooper attempted to stop the Pontiac, which failed to stop at the command of the officer. While pursuing the suspect vehicle, the trooper observed it speeding (up to 95 mph), driving in a reckless and aggressive manner. While traveling on SR1 the suspect lost control of the vehicle and exited the road and nearly struck a patrol vehicle. After gaining control of the suspect vehicle, the suspect traveled south on SR1 continuing to ignore the commands to stop by police. The pursuit continued into the city limits of Rehoboth Beach at which point Rehoboth Beach Police Department took command of the pursuit. The operator then struck a Rehoboth Beach Police Department and a Delaware State Police vehicle before being apprehended at the scene by officers. The Delaware State Police have charged the operator, Christopher H. Huston, 21 years old, of the 2000 block of Draemar Rd., Wilmington, with - disregarding a police officer signal; drugs not in original container; driving across median; driving without a license; failure to have insurance identification in possession; 13 counts of failure to use a turn signal; 2 counts of stopping in the roadway; speeding; following too closely; 3 counts of disregarding a red light; 13 counts of improper lane change; DUI driving under the influence; reckless driving; aggressive driving; and operating an unregistered vehicle. This investigation is ongoing.
IRS warns about new e-mail scams The Internal Revenue Service alerted taxpayers to the latest versions of an email scam intended to fool people into believing they are under investigation by the agency's Criminal Investigation division. The e-mail purporting to be from IRS Criminal Investigation falsely states that the person is under a criminal probe for submitting a false tax return to the California Franchise Tax Board. The e-mail seeks to entice people to click on a link or open an attachment to learn more information about the complaint against them. The IRS warned that the e-mail link and attachment is a Trojan Horse that can take over a computer hard drive and allow someone to have remote access to the computer. Do not to click the link in the email or open the attachment. Similar e-mail variations suggest a customer has filed a complaint against a company and the IRS can act as an arbitrator. The IRS does not send out unsolicited e-mails or ask for detailed personal and financial information. Additionally, the IRS
never asks people for the PIN numbers, passwords or similar secret access information for their credit card, bank, or other financial accounts. Recipients of questionable e-mails claiming to come from the IRS should not open any attachments or click on any links contained in the e-mails. Instead, they should forward the emails to firstname.lastname@example.org. The instructions may be found on IRS.gov by entering the term "phishing" in the search box. The IRS also sees other e-mail scams that involve tricking victims into revealing private information over the Internet or "phishing" for information. Other fraudulent e-mail scams try to entice taxpayers to click their way to a fake IRS web site and ask for bank account numbers. Another e-mail tells taxpayers the IRS is holding a refund (often $63.80) and seeks financial information. Still another email claims the IRS's 'anti-fraud commission' is investigating their tax returns. More information is available on IRS.gov.

Laurel Star Sports Three Bulldog baseball players to play in Blue-Grey Classic By Mike McClure Laurel’s Lance Kelley, Matt Parker, and Brandon Hearne will play in the Blue-Grey Classic, a showcase for college scouts, on July 26 at the Trenton Thunder Stadium in New Jersey, the home of the AAA Yankees. The trio was chosen to play for the Mid-Atlantic team in the showcase, which has taken place for the past 12 years with over 80 percent of the prospects going on to get a partial or full baseball scholarship. All three underclassmen had solid season for the Bulldogs this past season. Hearne, an all-conference honorable mention, led the team with 17 RBIs and batted .393 in conference play; Kelley, who was named first team all-conference and all-state honorable mention, led the team with a .386 overall average and has committed just two errors in his last 40 games as the Bulldog second basemen; and Parker, named second team all-conference as an outfielder, batted .314 against Henlopen Conference foes. “They all have different personalities,” head coach Jerry Mears said. “They all produce when the game’s tight. You don’t have to worry about any of the three when it comes to going out and playing hard and preparing for the game.” Mears calls Kelley “fiery and intense” while Hearne and Parker are “laid back but consistent”. He said all three players bring something to the table on and off the field and are looking to play college baseball. “This is a good opportunity for them to be recognized by college coaches to give them more options. It’s going to broaden their scope a little bit. They all can play at that level, said Mears, who recommended the three players and others to the BlueGrey committee. “They’re going to see players that are at the same level as they

are and they’re going to see players that play at a really high level. You learn a lot when you go away from here a little bit and put the glove on because that’s what they’re going to do in college.” All three players are looking forward to the experience and a chance to showcase their talents in front of scouts. “It’s going to be fun playing with people from all over. It’s going to be a good experience,” Kelley said. “It’s going to be fun playing on that field,” added Parker. “We get to play with people we don’t normally get to play with.” “We get to help each other. When we get there we can push each other through,” Hearne said. “If we have a good showing maybe we can draw more people down here to see us.” The players are thankful to coach Mears and their parents Mike Kelley and Kim Watson, Rodney Hearne and Susan Continued on page 49

Sussex Tech softball: 2007 year in review By Mike McClure The Sussex Tech varsity softball team entered the 2007 spring sports season with some high expectations after going 19-4 overall in ‘06. The Lady Ravens went on to outscore their opponents, 196-33, losing to only Caravel and Sussex Central during the regular season before defeating both teams in the state semifinals and finals for their first ever state championship. “Our number one goal is to become a team. Our motto this year is “A team lives when you abandon yourself”,” Sussex Tech head coach John Marvel told the Star at the start of the season. “We have a lot of experience back. We’ve been blessed that our program is at a point where we have high expectations.” The following is the 2007 year in review: 3/22- Sussex Tech 8, Smyrna 3- Brittany Joseph knocked in five runs including three with a home run, Hope Cornell doubled and homered, and Kim Owens
struck out 12 in a three-hitter. Heather Frech also had two hits as the four seniors stepped up in the opening contest. 3/23- Sussex Tech 9, Easton 0- Sophomore Brooke Tull struck out 13 and allowed three hits in the shutout while Frech and Rhonda Warrington each drove in three runs. 3/27- Sussex Tech 8, Polytech 1Owens notched the win while Frech, Warrington, and Megan Lathbury each ripped a triple in the Raven victory. 3/30- Sussex Tech 4, Laurel 3 (10 innings)- The Bulldogs gave the Ravens their first hard fought battle of the season as neither team could score through the first nine innings. Sussex Tech scored four runs in the top of the 10th and held off Laurel’s rally in the bottom of the inning for the narrow one run win. Joseph and Tull each collected a pair of hits and Tull struck out 19. 4/2- Sussex Tech 15, Seaford 0Joseph struck out 10 and drove in five runs and Tull had a double, home run, and
✳ JUNE 14 - 20, 2007 five RBIs to help pace Tech. 4/14- Sussex Tech 13, Chambersburg 7- Melony Thompson had two hits and four RBIs, Frech collected a pair of hits including a three-run home run, and Cornell also hit a three-run home run. Joseph and Owens added three hits a piece. 4/17- Sussex Tech 12, Delmar 1Joseph struck out 12 batters, Lathbury and Cornell contributed three hits each, and Owens and Tull had two hits in the Raven win. 4/19- Sussex Tech 7, Cape Henlopen 3- In a preview of the state quarterfinals, Sussex Tech topped Cape as Tull struck out 12 in a three hitter while driving in three runs. Cornell doubled, tripled, and knocked in three runs. 4/23- Caravel 6, Sussex Tech 3- Defending champion Caravel handed Sussex Tech its first loss of the season in a nonconference game. Warrington drove in two runs and Lathbury had one RBI in the defeat. 4/24- Sussex Tech 10, Lake Forest 1The Ravens bounced back with a conference win over the Spartans as Joseph homered and struck out 11, Thompson hit a home run, and Lathbury had two hits. 4/28- Sussex Tech 10, Concord 0Joseph struck out 10 and had two hits, Frech went 4-for-4, and Cornell chipped in with a pair of hits in the non-conference win. 4/30- Sussex Tech 13, Indian River 2Tull tossed a two-hitter and Owens had two doubles in the Sussex Tech victory. 5/1- Sussex Tech 11, Woodbridge 0Joseph fired the team’s first and only nohitter of the season and hit a home run. Fellow Laurel resident Kim Owens also homered. 5/3- Sussex Tech 16, Caesar Rodney 0- Tull struck out 10 and had a one-hitter
and Jenna Allen and Cornell collected three hits apiece. 5/8- Sussex Tech 10, Milford 0- Tull struck out 13 in another one-hitter while adding a pair of doubles at the plate. Warrington also had two doubles for the Ravens. 5/9- Sussex Tech 29, Dover 0- The bats stayed hot as the Ravens thumped the Senators behind three home runs by Thompson and five hits by Joseph who homered twice. Cornell also had three hits including a pair of home runs and dove in six runs. 5/12- Sussex Tech 13, Saint Dominic 3- Joseph earned the non-conference win, Owens collected three hits and drove in four runs, and Tull tallied three hits and three RBIs for Sussex Tech. 5/14- Sussex Central 3, Sussex Tech 1- The Knights won the battle of the unbeaten Henlopen Conference teams in this April 4 makeup but the Ravens would get their revenge in the state tournament. Tull allowed four runs and had the team’s lone RBI. 5/15- Sussex Tech 4, Padua 0- Tull struck out 17 in a one-hit shutout in Sussex Tech’s final game of the regular season. Sussex Tech entered the state tournament with a 17-2, 12-1 regular season record. The undefeated Knights got the second seed, the defending champion Caravel Bucs were the top seed, and the Ravens were seeded third. Sussex Tech went undefeated when it counted, beating William Penn, 25-4, before a pair of one run wins over Cape Henlopen (4-3) and Sussex Central (3-2) to advance to the championship against Caravel. This time the Ravens got the better of their New Castle County nemesis with a 6-0 win to take the state crown.

There’s More to Father’s Day Than Ties Somewhere between when Father’s Day was first established in June of 1910 and present day the tie has become synonymous with the holiday. One may never know just who introduced the tie into the picture. It certainly wasn’t the person credited for making Father’s Day a mainstream holiday. Sonora Dodd, of Washington, came up with the concept for a “father’s day.” She thought of the idea while listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909, and realized there should be a similar day set aside to honor fathers, most especially her father, William Smart. Smart was a Civil War veteran and also a widower, who raised his six children all on his own. When Dodd became an adult, she realized how selfless her father had acted and how difficult it must have been to raise such a
large family. In his honor, she held a father’s day in Spokane, Washington on June 10 — her father’s birthday. The idea of the holiday was supported by President Calvin Coolidge in 1924. But it wasn’t until 1966, when President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day, and subsequently when President Richard Nixon signed the law in 1972 that the holiday became permanent. Since then Father’s Day has been celebrated annually worldwide. And, the sale of ties spikes considerably at that time of year. After all, could there possibly be a gift that fits Dad more perfectly than a tie? The answer is a resounding yes. By now your father may have enough ties to fill his closet. So this year, consider a gift that may be more heartfelt and unique.

Health Del Tech graduates help fulfill state's need At Delaware Technical & Community College's Owens Campus graduation last month, a record number of 171 nursing students crossed the stage and accepted their award. This group of newly-educated registered and practical nurses represented 25 percent of the entire graduating class at the College's Georgetown campus. Collegewide, nursing grads and those in allied health technologies such as dental hygiene, paramedics, and respiratory care represent more than1/3 of the1600+ individuals who earned awards this year at one of the school's three campuses. The increasing number of healthcare professionals entering the workforce has been fueled by Delaware's growing healthcare industry and the state's commitment to helping institutions like Delaware Tech produce highly skilled job-ready graduates. In 2002, when it was revealed that the
nursing shortage had reached a crisis with at least 650 vacancies statewide, the state made creative use of proceeds from the tobacco settlement funding to expand the Delaware Tech nursing program in all three counties. The initial expansion was augmented with additional funding in July 2005 to further expand the nursing program along with the allied health programs targeting Radiologic Technology and Respiratory Care among others. These investments have paid huge dividends for both the state and the healthcare industry. In just five years, the size of Delaware Tech's nursing program has grown from 354 students to 814 - an increase of 130 percent. In addition, the number of nursing academic degrees and diplomas awarded have increased from 190 in 2001 to 435 in 2007 - also an increase of 130 percent. Even with the significant ex-
pansion of this program, Delaware Tech nursing and allied health students are still earning the highest licensure exam scores of any institution of higher education in the state. Given that more than 90 percent of the college's student population live and work in Delaware, the state's healthcare industry can now draw from a much larger pool of highly qualified healthcare professionals. This is great news for this year's graduates who will have little problem finding work. According to the "Delaware Business Ledger's" 2007 "Book of Lists," three Delaware hospitals rank in the top 10 list of largest private employers in the state; together they employ over 15,000 individuals - more than Delaware's largest employer, the State of Delaware. Not surprisingly, in 2006, Christiana Care and Bayhealth Medical Center were the top two individual employers of
Delaware Tech graduates, and more than 40 percent of the 2006 graduates who responded to the college's placement survey reported they had found employment in the healthcare industry. Besides filling the state's need for highly qualified professionals, Delaware Tech's nurses and allied health professionals will greatly contribute to the state's economic development efforts by earning excellent salaries and increasing the tax base. Based on 2006 figures, graduates of Delaware Tech's nursing program will likely earn an annual salary of nearly $50,000 while those in allied heath technologies are expected to average more than $40,000. For more information on Delaware Tech's nursing and allied health programs or its graduates, contact the College Relations Office, at 302-7394623.

Many things have changed over the past 35 years By Dr. Anthony Policastro
May 30th was the 35th anniversary of my graduation from medical school. June 23rd will be the 35th anniversary of starting my life as a pediatrician. A lot of things have changed over the last 35 years. The most interesting change has been in the area of infectious diseases. During my first year as a pediatric resident, there were relatively few antibiotics that we could use. Amoxicillin had just been invented. It soon became the primary antibiotic. Very few bacteria were resistant to it. Over the years we have developed a lot more antibiotics. We have used them a lot. The result has been that now there are bacteria that are resistant to many antibiotics. In the past we didn’t have many in existence to use. Now we often don’t have many that are effective because of resistance. The only immunizations we had when I graduated were DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus), polio, smallpox and MMR (measles, mumps and rubella).
We had just started using the MMR a few years earlier. I have seen many cases of measles. Most of our younger physicians have not. We have made natural smallpox extinct. We do not even use the vaccine any more. We have many more vaccines to use now. Some of them prevent the primary causes of meningitis. There was a time when I could depend on seeing several cases of meningitis a year. Now I have not seen a patient with meningitis in a number of years. Vaccines help prevent pneumonia. They help prevent a serious throat infection called epiglottitis. Newborn infections are serious and used to be relatively common. Now we check mothers for the most common cause of newborn infections at 35 weeks of pregnancy. If they are positive, we give then antibiotics during labor. The result has been a significant decrease in newborn infections. Another thing that has been beneficial is the length that antibiotics last. Old antibiotics like penicillin are metabolized
very quickly by the body. They need to be given every 3 to 4 hours. Many of the newer antibiotics are metabolized more slowly. They can be given once a day. In the past we would have to put patients in the hospital. They would need an IV to get their antibiotics frequently. Now we can give one dose of a long acting antibiotic. We can then see the child in 24 hours. It allows us to put less children into the hospital. Parents tend to take a lot of these things for granted. However, we did not always have it as good as we do now. We have come a long way in treating infectious diseases in 35 years.

MORNING STAR ✳ JUNE 14 - 20, 2007
New medicare programs could cause problems for Delaware residents Insurance Commissioner Matt Denn is warning Delawareans about potential problems with Medicare Advantage programs, which have generated a number of complaints in recent months. Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private companies that sign a contract with Medicare. Medicare Advantage plans provide Medicare covered benefits to Medicare members through the plan, and may offer prescription drug benefits as well as extra benefits that Medicare doesn't cover, such as vision or dental services. "The complaints I have received have alleged that beneficiaries, after enrolling in a Medicare Advantage plan, discovered that their doctors do not participate in the Medicare Advantage plan even though the doctors participate in the traditional Medicare program," Commissioner Denn said. "A doctor is not required to accept a Medicare Advantage plan simply because he or she is a participating doctor with the Medicare pro-
gram. Before enrolling into any health insurance program, you should make sure that your doctor is a Medicare participating physician who accepts assignment. Your provider will advise you as to whether he or she is willing to accept the terms of your plan's payment." In a number of instances where Delawareans have called the Department of Insurance to report that their doctor was not part of a Medicare Advantage plan they signed up for and that they felt misled, the department staff has intervened and asked companies to allow the consumers out of the plans. For more information about Medicare Advantage plans, Delaware residents can contact ELDERinfo, a counseling service for Delaware residents with Medicare at 1-800-336-9500 (in-state only) or (302) 674-7364; or the federal government centers for Medicare & Medicaid at 1-800-MEDICARE (1800-633-4227).

First things first. Today is Flag Day. Surely you have the American flag proudly displayed in a highly visible place at your home, flying in the breeze, proclaiming your pride in being an American and showing your support of our troops that serve throughout the world, particularly in Iraq. The big news in every small town, village, community, city and state in our nation this past week has been the graduation from schools and colleges of those who have successfully completed a phase of their education and are moving on with their lives. The carefree days of living at home and having the support of their family, decisions made for a lot of situations, needs provided for, food prepared, clothing washed and ironed, financial needs taken care of, and all their basic wants at their fingertips has come to a close as the young graduates from high school face the real world. Some of the high school graduates will be entering college, living away from home, making new friends, facing situations they could not possibly have imagined. Others will be entering the field of employment, facing new daily challenges, making new friends, and facing challenges they could never have imagined. Some will be entering the military service of our nation. These young people will be facing regimentation they could never have imagined. Each will be facing the reality of the phrase, “brave, new world.” Each will face the challenge in his or her own way. Some will succeed and do well. Others will crumble under the pressure. Each will be forced to make decisions that will affect their future. This year, Laurel High has 86 members in the class of 2007. Forty of these young men and women will go on to college. That is a huge percentage no matter how one looks at it. The entire 86 make up the newest group of Laurel High alumni. Valedictorian for the class of 2007 at Laurel High was Kate Downes, daughter of John and Debbie Pressley Downes. It seems only yesterday that many of us attended the graduation of John (we called him Johnny in those days) and Debbie from Laurel High. John’s parents are the late Lester Downes, well-known insurance

Moments with Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton man of Laurel and strong Bulldog supporter, and Thelma Downes, who taught many of our children in the elementary schools here. As I flipped through the pictorial review of the class of 2007, I had great memories of many parents and grandparents of some of the class members. Caitlin Dolby, who was not only a good student but an outstanding athlete, is the daughter of David and Sharon Dolby. Sharon is in the education field as a teacher and David, son of Dot and Harvey Lee Dolby, is a postal service employee. We could write a book on some of the stories pertaining to this young man who took his girls softball team to national honors. Ethan Calloway is the grandson of Mary Beth (quilter friend) and her eversmiling husband (who now raises buffalo). Meghan Eudy is the daughter of Richard and Susan Culver Eudy and granddaughter of John T. and Geraldine Culver. Abby Kee is the daughter of David and Janice Culver Kee. Ginger Queen is the daughter of Galen and Jillian Queen; Josh Lewis is the son of Julie Lewis and Bob Lewis; Samantha Oliphant is the daughter of Robert and Tammy Purpur Oliphant. Her grandparents are George and Colleen Ralph Purpur and Bob and Mrs. Oliphant. An elementary teacher of one of our sons, Mrs. Oliphant was never known in our home as anything other than Mrs. Oliphant. No first name, just Mrs. Oliphant. Actually her name is Lib. Each of these students has in some way played a role or added to the joys and memories of our lives. Many of us can look over the list of graduates and make connections for our own memory books. This is a new day for the newest group of alumni of Laurel High School. Whatever the path they choose to take in the future, we wish them well, success, and most importantly, God’s blessing. Look out world. Here comes the Class of 2007!
The annual business meeting of the Friends of the Laurel Library will be held Tuesday, June 19, at 7 p.m. in the community room of the library. This is an open meeting and welcomes anyone who wishes to attend. It would be of interest to come and learn of the Friends’ projects, which benefit our children — now and in the future — and which take place during the year at the library, summer and winter. Public support is needed to continue with projects to fund these programs Alan and Janet “Petie” Holloway recently visited Ernie and Etta Marine in Stuart, Fla. They all celebrated with a “grand affair” dinner for the 65th wedding anniversary of the Marines. Very special happy birthday wishes to one of my very favorite young lady friends, Insley Fowler, who will undoubtedly celebrate, in some way, her 20th year on June 19. Things and events seem to be winding down as summer is fast approaching. The Laurel Garden Club members held their last hurrah for the season at the home of Charles and Moggie Moyer last Sunday. The feast resembled a gourmet’s dream as everything including appetizers, salads, casseroles, fried chicken and luscious desserts arrayed the tables. They said hello to summer and good-bye to business affairs ‘til September. They also welcomed new members and told the green-thumb diehards to keep in practice all season. Margaret Coladonato and her sister Hanna Miller have recently returned from a visit to West Virginia where they enjoyed quality time with another sister, Tillie Moore, and her two daughters, Carol and Paula. Members of one of the town’s Red Hat Group, the Lunch Bunch, enjoyed their monthly breakfast and fellowship hour at Laurel’s Dutch Inn on Saturday, June 9. On Friday, June 15, they will celebrate with a luau at the home of the “queen,” Karen Hitch. Birthday girls this month are Mary Ann Smulski and Sara Ellis.

By Matt Denn Delaware Insurance Commissioner
With just a few weeks left before they finish for the year, legislators in Dover have a number of opportunities to make insurance more affordable and fair for the people of Delaware. The bills in question are supported by many Republicans and Democrats, but whether they pass or fail this month is largely up to you. Several of these bills are opposed by the insurance industry, which is the biggest interest group in Dover with 28 registered lobbyists. To put that number in perspective, the entire oil industry in Delaware has four registered lobbyists. The state’s poultry industry has one. The insurance industry has 28. With that level of opposition to some of these pro-consumer bills, downstate legislators need to hear from the people of Delaware that insurance reform is a priority and that these bills should be passed. Across party lines, legislators listen to their constituents--which means that you can have a real impact on the fate of insurance reform this year. Here are the bills that need your support to change the way insurance companies do business: Senate Bill 6 would create a health insurance pool for small businesses and families. This pool would give families and small businesses many of the same advantages that large companies now receive when they buy health insurance. Together with funding proposed by the Governor, S.B. 6 would offer health coverage to more than 10,000 Delawareans within the first year after its passage, with lower costs or better benefits than they have now. In future years, the pool could be expanded to include tens of thousands of additional Delawareans. This bill could provide much-needed relief to many families and small businesses being pressed by spiraling health insurance rates, but it has been opposed by major health insurance companies. Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 31 would restrict the use of credit scoring by auto and homeowner insurance companies in setting insurance rates. Currently, many insurance customers can see their premiums increase because of something that happens on their credit report – not just late payments, but even something like opening a new credit card

Guest Column account. This legislation would prevent existing policyholders from having their auto or homeowner rates increase because of a change in their credit. Senate Bill 37 would allow the Delaware Department of Insurance to regulate health insurance rates. If this bill passes, health insurance companies would have to justify to the Insurance Department that the rates they want to charge are necessary and are not excessive. Otherwise, these companies can charge whatever they wish. Delaware is one of only ten states in America whose Insurance Departments do not have some oversight of health insurance rates for either families, small businesses, or both— it is time that we joined the rest of the country in addressing this issue. Senate Bill 58 aims to protect consumers from deceptive health coverage plans. Known as “discount medical plans,” these plans are often advertised on telephone poles or posters in stores or on the internet. Some plans are legitimate, but many seem like insurance when all they do is provide discounts to a limited number of doctors and for a limited number of services. People who are scammed by these plans currently have no recourse because the companies are not regulated. This bill would protect consumers from some of the abuses seen in these plans. House Bill 92 creates a process for hospitals and doctors to have their claims for payment by insurance companies be resolved quickly and with little cost, instead of going to court. The trouble that health care providers have getting paid by insurance companies is one of the factors driving up health care costs. As Insurance Commissioner, I hear every day from people who can’t find affordable health insurance, or who are using their savings to pay for their health coverage, or have seen their auto or home rates soar because of something on their credit report. These bills tackle those concerns head on and would make Delaware a leader in addressing insurance issues. But they won’t happen this year unless legislators’ phones start ringing and their mailboxes start filling up.

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