By Tony E. Windsor The Laurel Police Department is working on a formal agreement that will allow mutual interaction with Maryland law enforcement. Laurel Police Chief Michael Wilson told the Laurel Mayor and Council during a recent meeting that he is working with Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis on an agreement which will give both agencies extra manpower and intelligence opportunities in the event of major cases. Wilson said given the close proximity of the northern boundaries of Maryland to the town of Laurel, it provides a great opportunity for both agencies and he welcomes the opportunity. “We have the opportunity to assist one another and provide manpower for such things as a large-scale drug case,” he said. An example of the mutual aid agreement in action occurred on Jan. 29, when the Laurel Police Department’s Emergency Response Team assisted the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Continued on page 4

Look for local craftsmanship in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ movie By Lynn R. Parks

What’s a tea party without a teapot? Even perhaps the strangest tea party of them all, hosted by the mad hatter in Lewis Carroll’s classic “Adventures in Wonderland,” needed some kind of vessel to hold the featured drink. Set designers for the most recent film adaptation of Alice’s adventures realized that. So they did what other

movie set designers in need of period pieces made from metal have done. They called on coppersmith Peter Goebel. Goebel, of Bridgeville, made about 10 pieces for the Disney movie “Alice in Wonderland,” which came out last weekend. Among the pieces are teapots, perhaps for the tea party hosted by the Mad Hatter, played by Johnny Depp.

Sean Steward, REALTOR® Cell: 302-381-1085 Office: 302-629-7711 “See how social networking can save you money”.

“I also made coffee pots and some pans,” said Goebel, 62. “And a couple copper lanterns.” He understands that the movie includes a scene in which a whole area is lit by copper lanterns. If his lantern is used in the scene, it is possible that it is duplicated for the scene by computers using a sophisticated kind of cut and paste, he said. Continued on page 3

What’s a tea party without a (Sussex) teapot? Continued from page one

Last week, Goebel said that he was anxious to see the movie to spot his creations. “I’ll be looking like crazy,” he said. “If they show up, it’ll be a hoot.” Goebel has made set pieces for a dozen other movies, including “The Patriot” starring Mel Gibson and “The Far Side of the World” with Russell Crowe. Among the 200 pieces that he made for that 2003 film was a large copper bowl that sat on the table in Capt. Jack Aubrey’s dining quarters. His first movie commission

was for a lantern that Kermit carried in “Muppet Treasure Island,” released in 1996. Goebel said that his children have gone through each movie frame by frame, looking for the bowls, mugs and steins that came from their father’s workshop. Goebel has been making copper pieces for 20 years. He uses smithing techniques that were used in the 17th and 18th centuries, ferreting them out by examining old pieces and through trial and error. Old-time coppersmiths, a group that died out as the Industrial Revolution made

their skills obsolete, did not leave behind instructions, he said. In addition to pieces for movies, Goebel makes 17th- and early 18th-century museum reproductions, in copper as well as in tin and brass. His pots and pans are used in the kitchen at Pennsbury Manor, the reconstructed 17th-century home of William Penn on the Delaware River in Morrisville, Pa. He has also made

pieces for exhibit at historic Jamestown and Yorktown, Va., Old Fort Niagara near Niagara Falls, Sutter’s Fort in California and Fort St. Jean Baptiste in Louisiana. Many of his pieces are used by re-enactors for the French and Indian War and American Revolution. And when the mood strikes, he turns out works of folk art, including hammered cop-

per pigs, horses, fish, angels and suns, chains of copper apples and hearts and graceful wreaths of leaves. For your information Peter Goebel’s copper studio, Goose Bay Workshops, is at his home near Bridgeville. For information, call 337-8285 or visit the website, goosebay-workshops. com.

Sunday is time to spring ahead & change smoke alarm batteries Daylight savings time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March - March 14 this year - and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3 a.m. local daylight time. Now is also a great time to check the batteries on your smoke alarms. Statistics show an average of three children per day die in

home fires. You can help prevent fire deaths and injuries by remembering to change the batteries in your smoke alarms when you change your clocks back to Daylight Savings time each spring. Once you have changed your batteries, be sure to test your smoke alarms. This simple act will cut the risk of dying in a home fire by at least half. For more information, contact Mike Lowe, Delaware State Fire School, 302-739-4773.

Renewable energy systems present a new challenge to firefighters and first responders. To address the issues surrounding the systems during a fire, a new and free course entitled, “Firefighter Safety & Renewable Energy Systems,” is being offered through the cooperative efforts of FLEXERA Solar Energy and Wind Power, the Delaware State Fire School, and Delaware Technical & Community College. This course will present an overview of solar hot water, solar thermal, solar tube lights, solar voltaic and wind turbines technologies. Using a step-by-step approach, participants will learn how to

safely manage the scene to eliminate risk of injury and damage to components and property during a fire call. Specific topics include: energy system identification, common hazards of renewable energy systems, specific hazards & precautions, disconnects & mechanisms in place to aid safety and solar electric system wiring diagrams. A class will be held at Delaware Tech in Georgetown on March 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The class is approved by the Delaware State Fire School for two training credit hours. To register for the free course, call Delaware Tech’s Division of Corporate & Community Programs at 855-1617.

agreement between a Delaware municipality and a law enforcement agency outside of its state is not standard operations, but Wilson said it makes sense considering the close geographical proximity. “We have worked with Sheriff Lewis and the Wicomico Sheriff’s Department over the years because we train our K-9 units with them,” Wilson said. “I told Sheriff Lewis if there was anything we could do for him to let us know. He called and took me up on my offer and we helped with the search warrants. This is a great opportunity for both agencies and we are working on a more permanent arrangement.” Wilson said for now, the mutual aid agreements are only good for each individual request for support and expire at the conclusion of the case. The two agencies are working on a more traditional on-going Mutual Aid Agreement.

Police seek jurisdiction agreement Department with the execution of a search warrant. This incident was part of a large scale operation conducted by the sheriff’s department and Laurel police helped to execute 10 search warrants simultaneously. The Laurel Police Department’s Emergency Response Team performed similar duties in a mutual aid scenario with the Delmar Police Department when Laurel police officers helped serve a search warrant in Delmar. Wilson said it is not unusual for most municipal police agencies in Delaware to have “Mutual Aid Agreements” with one another. The formal agreements allow sworn police officers to work outside of their jurisdiction under the jurisdictional control of another police agency. The formal

Chamber opposes card check bill

The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce accompanied a delegation of members to Washington, D.C., recently to meet with Delaware’s elected officials about the proposed card check union organizing legislation. “Our delegation represented a crosssection of the Delaware business community which opposes card check for its

elimination of a worker’s right to a secret ballot, for opening workers to intimidation and for imposing government control of pay and benefit decisions without appeal,” said Ken Brennan, chair of the Delaware Retail Council. The card check bill was introduced in both the U.S. House and Senate in February 2009, before hitting bipartisan resistance in the Senate. Even if the card check bill cannot pass this year as written, organized labor may push for a vote to determine which Senators to support headed into this fall. Chamber representatives met with U.S. Sens. Ted Kaufman and Tom Carper because their vote will be critical in determining whether supporters can gather the necessary 60 Senate votes to advance the bill. The legislation fell just nine votes shy of moving forward in the Senate in 2007.

Good Samaritan learns ‘effort’ is what is required By James Diehl

M

ary “Midge” McMasters has always been the type of person who puts her so-called money where her mouth is. Whenever she sees someone in need, she can’t help but lend a helping hand. “Faith without works is dead,” is the mantra she bases her life on. “I don’t do the things I do because they make me feel good, but that is what they do,” says McMasters, a native of Sharptown and a resident of Laurel since the late 1950s. “Some things I know I can’t do or am not qualified to do. But I do what I can, which makes me feel like I’m giving back to the community.” A member of Centenary United Methodist Church since her first days in Laurel, McMasters made her living as a bookkeeper before settling into retirement. Though today she’s better known in her adopted hometown for the work she does with the Good Samaritan Thrift Shop, her early days volunteering were spent teaching Sunday School. It was a way to spend a little extra time with her four children, but also served as the launching point for a lifetime of volunteer work. She even spent more than a decade as the church’s Sunday School superintendent; she felt she was needed and filled the role admirably. “After I taught the kids for six years, I got out of it for awhile. But then they needed somebody [to serve as superintendent],” she remembers. “Sometimes you stand around and think somebody ought to be doing this or ought to be doing that. I guess God was nudging me to put my money where my mouth was, so I went and talked to the preacher about it.” After 11 years of Sunday mornings spent teaching the ways of the church to her young pupils, McMasters felt it was “time to give someone else a chance” and she moved on to other projects. She does still fill in when needed these days, however, mostly with adult classes. Another love over the years has been the Centenary chapter of the United Methodist Women, specifically the group’s annual Thanksgiving community meal. It’s been going on for years, and it’s something the women of the church look forward to each November. “That really kind of makes Thanksgiving for all of us,” admits McMasters. “We knew there were people who needed someplace to go for Thanksgiving to get a good meal. But we also knew there were people who didn’t have family in the area and would just enjoy the fellowship.” Held the Sunday before Thanksgiving at Centenary, the ladies of the church generally feed between 160-175 people each year, according to McMasters. She loves to help out and puts as many hours as she can into the project, but she also prefers to stay in the background. She doesn’t seek the attention, nor does she crave the appreciation. She merely wants to do her part. “I just feel like if I needed someone’s help, they would be there for me, so I try to help when I can,” she says. “As long as I can go, I’m happy because I’m not good at doing nothing. I like to keep busy; I may not do things as quickly now but I think I still do as much as I’ve always done.” Though still active in her church, McMasters spends most of her volunteer hours these days with the Good Samaritan Thrift Shop in downtown Laurel. Housed in the former Phillips Men’s Shop

Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com across the street from Centenary United Methodist Church, Good Samaritan has been serving the needs of the Laurel community since 1973. At that time, the shop operated out of a long since demolished building on the corner of Central Avenue and West Market Street. The store has come a long way since those early years. Today, a trip inside is a lot like going to a mainstream department store in a shopping center or a mall; if you didn’t know better, you’d swear many of the things on the store’s shelves were brand new, and that’s what McMasters and her fellow “good Samaritans” aim for. “We try to keep this as much like a regular store as possible so the people who aren’t able to go to Macy’s or to Boscov’s still have a place to go to find nice clothes,” says McMasters, who began volunteering with the organization in the mid 1980s. “I think we have made a big impact on the community. All of the money we raise goes right back into the community.” Though McMasters loves the role she plays with the shop, she never dreamed she would still be stocking shelves, running cash registers and cleaning things up more than a quarter century after first expressing willingness to help out with the organization. “I thought I’d do this for awhile and then go do something else,” she admits. “But I just feel like this is my way of being able to help.” One of McMasters’ ministers once told her something that has stuck in her mind for years; it’s sort of become the guiding force she has built her life of community service around. Once stressed out about whether or not she was making a difference, the man of God looked her in the eyes and said “Midge, you’re not responsible for the result, you’re just responsible for the effort.” And no one can fault the mother of four’s effort over the years. She’s impacted more lives that she can possibly imagine, made a difference to more people than she will ever realize.

Midge McMasters has volunteered at Laurel’s Good Samaritan Thrift Shop for more than 25 years. Affectionately referred to as the “bag lady” by her co-workers, she takes a great deal of joy in helping others, particularly children.

She’s helped provide toys for children at Christmas time, fed thousands of people at Thanksgiving and provided needy residents with clothes and other items when they were in desperate need. A modest women who would rather talk about the organizations she helps rather than herself, she always seems to have a smile on her face. She loves to share stories about how the Good Samaritan has helped the community over the years. “We sometimes have bus drivers come in the store and tell us that they have children riding their busses who need coats,” she says with a touch of reflection. “If we have the proper size, we’ll go and find one and give it to them. Those are the things that really stick in my mind, the times we’ve been able to help the kids.” Money raised at the Good Samaritan is used to help pay doctor’s bills, prescriptions, rent, car insurance, gasoline and heating

bills, among other things. It’s all returned to members of the community who truly need a little extra help getting by; it serves a purpose McMasters is proud to be a part of. Even if her co-workers do affectionately refer to her as “the bag lady.” “They used to always tease me because it would drive me crazy when the bags would go all over the place,” she says with a chuckle. “I had to straighten them up because I just couldn’t handle that. I still have to go straighten them up now.” The Good Samaritan Thrift Shop is open every Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. It’s a pretty good bet that, no matter what day you enter the doors, you’ll see McMasters hard at work at her “second home.” Says McMasters: “I spend a great deal of time here, but to me it’s almost like recreation time. I go home tired, but it’s just something I really like to do.”

Hunting violations Moore

On March 3 at 10:50 p.m., Laurel Police stopped a Nissan Maxima southbound on Sussex Highway for a traffic violation. Upon making contact with the driver, officers immediately detected the smell

crashes occurred at night, nine occurred in New Castle County, three in Kent and two in Sussex. OHS asks all drivers to remember the basics of driving safety: Buckle up every trip, every time. Wearing a seat belt improves your chances of surviving a collision by approximately 45%. Slow down. Observe the posted speed limits and adjust your speeds down particularly when going around curves. Never drink and drive. Alcohol impairs your coordination, your reaction time and your judgment. Always use a designated driver, cab, or bus service to get you home safely. When crossing the roadways on foot, only use marked crosswalks or signaled or signed intersections as crossing points. If you are walking at night, wear reflective clothing or carry a flashlight. Upcoming safety initiatives by the Delaware Office of Highway Safety include DUI enforcement scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day as well as the weekends that surround it, a speed enforcement mobilization in April, and the Click It or Ticket campaign in May. For more information on the Office of Highway Safety’s ongoing safety programs, visit www.ohs.delaware.gov.

DNREC Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agents on Feb. 6 arrested a Dagsboro man on hunting-related violations. Paul E. Daisey, 29, of 14623 Blue Heron Drive, Dagsboro, was arrested and charged with three counts of failure to tag antlerless deer, three counts of possession of unlawfully taken game and one count of unlawful method of take. Daisey was taken to Justice of the Peace Court No. 3 in Georgetown, where he pled guilty to all charges and was assessed fines totaling $3,039. Citizens are encouraged to report fish and wildlife violations to the Delaware Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Section at 302-739-4580.

Fire in Seaford

Marijuana found in traffic stop

Traffic deaths on the rise statewide Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) officials urge motorists to take active steps to monitor and improve their own driving behavior in the wake of a recent fatal crash in Kent County. That means going back to the basics of driving and taking the following actions: buckle up, slow down and don’t drink and drive. The latest motor vehicle death, in which Delaware State Police Investigators believe alcohol, speed, and lack of seat belt use were all contributing factors, is the 17th of 2010. Several issues are troubling to OHS officials at this time. “We are extremely concerned about the number of fatal crashes occurring so early in the year. We’re averaging a fatal crash every four and a half days,” said Tricia Roberts, director of the Office of Highway Safety. Additionally, two of the fatal crashes involved multiple fatalities, and of the 17 traffic deaths this year, five of them were pedestrians. Three of the remaining 12 motor vehicle deaths involved alcohol, and four (33%) of the victims were not wearing seat belts. Acts of aggressive driving were a factor in at least 36% of the fatal crashes to date, and speed a factor in 14% of them. Additionally, eight of the 14 fatal

of marijuana and conducted a search of the vehicle. The driver advised that he was traveling from New York to Salisbury, Md. Officers located two five gallon buckets in the trunk, which contained 11.5 pounds of marijuana. The driver was taken into custody without incident.

Police seized two five gallon buckets filled with 11.5 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in Laurel.

The American Red Cross met with a Seaford family of four Monday night after their home on Tull Avenue was damaged by a kitchen fire. The Red Cross provided the family with groceries, infant supplies, temporary shelter and comfort kits.

Childhood obesity rates level off in Delaware between years 2006-08 The prevalence of overweight and obesity among Delaware children, ages 2-17, shows a flattening of the trajectory – no change - between 2006 and 2008. Because overweight and obesity rates had previously been climbing rapidly, the leveling-off is cause for optimism, reports Nemours in the March 2010 edition of Health Affairs, a peer-reviewed publication and the country’s most respected health policy journal. Additionally, a Health Affairs policy brief makes a national recommendation to follow what Delaware is doing on a national level as a way to lower childhood obesity. Nemours conducts the Delaware Survey of Children’s Health to collect parentreported information about the weight and behaviors of children aged 2-17. This leveling-off was seen in all Delaware counties and demographic subpopulations and mirrors the national trend supported by information released earlier by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Since 1980, child obesity rates have increased dramatically across the nation. Being overweight has doubled for children and tripled for adolescents, raising their risks for developing type 2 diabetes, early heart disease, and other health conditions such as asthma as well as psychological problems, including lower self-esteem. The article attributes this stabilization to the multi-sector and place-based approach Nemours and its many dedicated partners implement in child care, schools, primary care and in the broader community. These efforts are ultimately aimed at changing behaviors and reducing the prevalence of overweight and obesity among Delaware’s children. 5-2-1-Almost None The article shows a four-fold increase in awareness of Nemours’ 5-2-1-Almost None “prescription for health” which encourages children to: eat at least five fruits and vegetables a day; limit screen time to

Delaware child care policy has undergone significant change, leading the nation in regulations encouraging more physical activity and specifying limited consumption of foods high in fat, sugar, and sodium, in favor of more fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low fat dairy for kids in day care. In other findings, schools that participated in a pilot program to ensure that students get 150 minutes of physical activity during the school day saw results in student fitness levels. Based on the Fitnessgram assessment, students in the pilot group were one-and-ahalf times more likely to be physically fit than children in a control group. Nemours has worked with school districts to develop meaningful wellness policies and with the state Department of Education to implement the Fitnessgram. Just last month, Nemours joined five other nationally prominent groups including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The California Endowment in founding the Partnership for a Healthier America – a new non-partisan organization that will work closely with First Lady Michelle Obama’s obesity initiative, Let’s Move. Nemours earned a seat at this table in part due to the collaborative work and successful experience with partners throughout Delaware. In the fight against obesity, few states can compare in terms of reaching into all the places that influence kids’ behavior and choices.

Nanticoke Memorial is first in state to earn pulmonary rehabilitation certification March 14-20 is National Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week and this year’s theme is “Every Breath Brings Success.” Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will have a table displaying pulmonary information including brochures and other informational materials. Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to aid those who suffer from lung problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and restrictive pulmonary disease. The program encompasses such diseases as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, interstitial fibrosis and many others. Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs are designed to limit the physiological and psychological effects of pulmonary illness, reduce fear associated with shortness of breath and control shortness of breath, stabilize or improve the patient’s condition and enhance the patient’s quality of life. Nanticoke is the first and only hospital in Delaware to have received pulmonary rehabilitation certification from the American Association of Cardiovascular and

Nanticoke Hospital positions itself for the future By Lynn R. Parks

one, to focus on customer service and improvements in quality, includes improving patient satisfaction, something that is necessary to meet the four other goals, Rose said. “If we don’t fix that, it doesn’t matter what else we do,” he added. Rose told the chamber members that the level of care at Nanticoke has never flagged. “But when it came to customer satisfaction, that was another thing,” he said. Focusing on customer service will also mean making the work environment at the hospital the best it can be. “We want to be the employer of choice in the area,” Rose said. “If our employees aren’t happy, our patients won’t be happy.” And it will mean storing patient information in a way that is not fragmented and that reduces the potential for errors. Within about a year, Nanticoke hopes to be a paperless hospital, with all patient records stored electronically. Phase II of the changeover to electronic files started March 4. By the end of April 2011, spokesman Tom Brown said, medical providers will be able to put their notes

and orders for patients on the computer. (Phase I of the project to transform to electronic records started in 2005 and was completed that year. It included all medical records except for physicians’ orders, nurses’ notes, etc.) “We are not going electronic to save jobs,” Rose said. “Rather, this is a quality and safety issue. It won’t save the hospital money.” Goal two of the strategic plan is improving access to medical services, in part to reduce the number of area residents who go elsewhere for treatment. In addition to the nine new physicians who have come to Seaford in the past year, Nanticoke is looking for an endocrinologist, who would help in the treatment of people with diabetes, a new neurologist and new pulmonary doctors. “We will also be expanding our primary care network,” Rose said. Goal three is to let the community know what’s going on at Nanticoke. “You can never over communicate,” Rose said. “We will tell our story to anybody who’s willing to listen.”

STATE FARM YOUTH SUPPORTS DAPI - Delaware Adolescent Program, Inc. (DAPI) has received a $25,235 grant from the State Farm Youth Advisory Board for a service learning project on environmental toxins.

Mary Goff, surrounded by family, friends, staff, and residents, recently celebrated her 102nd birthday at LifeCare at Lofland Park, where she currently resides. Goff was born on Feb. 25, 1908, in Augusta Springs, Va. She was orphaned as a small child and raised by family members and friends in Augusta Springs. She married Jack R. (Pete) Goff in 1922, and they moved to Market Street in Laurel in 1939 with the opening of the Seaford DuPont plant. Together they raised three children, Jack D. Goff (deceased), Ruth Goff Allen (deceased) and Robert Goff, who lives in Nashville. She has seven grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 14 great-greatgrandchildren. LifeCare at Lofland Park, located across the street from Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, provides long-term care and short-term rehabilitation care in a homelike setting. For more information, call 628-3000 or visit www.nanticoke.org/ lifecare.

After a stretch of years in which it lost money, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital is looking at a better financial picture, CEO Steve Rose told members of the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce during a breakfast meeting Thursday. “I wouldn’t say that we’re really booming, but we are out of that worry zone,” he said. Nanticoke ended its last fiscal year with a surplus of $1.1 million. This followed on the heels of three losing years, including 2008, in which the hospital lost $8.1 million. In the past year, the hospital has also brought new physicians to town and expanded its staff by 40 new employees. With three new pediatricians in town, it has reopened its pediatric unit. And it has reopened the fifth-floor unit, being used for post-surgical patients. With all of that accomplished, Rose said, it is time to look toward the future. Rose presented to the chamber a synopsis of Nanticoke’s strategic plan. Goal

Love Ya! Mom, Kelly & Susan

Goal four focuses on continuing to improve Nanticoke’s financial picture. “We are making great strides, but there is still a lot of work to do,” Rose said. That work includes paying off the hospital’s debts, owed on bonds the hospital sold over the years to finance capital improvements. The bulk of the hospital’s debt comes from bonds that it sold in 2004 in the amount of $57 million, Brown said. “We would like to do some building and expand some things, but we have to get our equity built first,” Rose said. Finally, goal five is aimed at building relationships with other health-care providers in the area. “We can’t be all things to all people,” Rose said. Nanticoke’s recent partnership with Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, for example, allows people in western Sussex to benefit from PRMC’s clinical trials to test new cancer-fighting drugs. “We need to work together to make sure we are serving the community as best we can,” Rose said.

Polar Bear Plunge

Sunday, March 14, at 1 p.m., is the date and time for one of Delaware’s largest fundraising events - the Lewes Polar Bear Plunge. The Plunge, which was postponed on Feb. 7 due to snow, has grown each year, beginning in 1992 when 78 plungers raised $7,000 to last year’s effort seeing 2,923 Bears raise over $490,000. Since its inception, the plunge has raised $4.5 million. Thousands of Bears, including Gov. Jack Markell, will take the chilly dip into the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for Special Olympics Delaware. All funds raised support SODE’s year-round program of sports training, athletic competition and related programs for nearly 3,300 children and adults with intellectual disabilities. For the second consecutive year, the city of Rehoboth Beach will host a weekend-long Plunge Festival which will include a 5k Run to the Plunge, restaurant chili contest, ice sculpting contest, several kids’ activities, and the Apres Plunge Party held at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Restaurants and retailers throughout the Rehoboth Beach area have teamed up with Special Olympics to provide registered Bears with special discounts and activities throughout the weekend. In addition, the Atlantic Sands Hotel will serve as the official Plunge Headquarters of the Lewes Polar Bear Plunge.

Gas Lines

Crude oil increases continue to affect prices at the pump. Since prices tend to change with the seasons, motorists should expect a climb in pump prices as springtime approaches. Because of the rising average crude oil price, “pump prices may exceed $3 per gallon at times during the approaching spring and summer,” the Energy Information Administration (EIA) is forecasting. Crude Oil Prices Crude oil spent the week trading in a tight range between $78 and $81 a barrel. Two major factors – the state of the economic recovery and the strength of the U.S. dollar – continue to be the primary influences over the direction of oil prices. In its weekly report, the EIA showed crude stocks rose 4.1 million barrels

to 341.6 million barrels last week, the highest since the end of August 2009. Gasoline stocks rose 700,000 barrels to 231.9 million barrels. Demand stood at 8.882 million barrels per day. Forecast “Motorists have undoubtedly noticed slight increases at the gas pumps in recent weeks and if crude oil continues to trade above $80 a barrel prices may continue to climb in the days ahead,” said Jana L. Tidwell, acting manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. Local pricing On Tuesday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.649 to $2.749 a gallon. The low price is nine cents higher than a week ago. The high price is two cents higher than a week ago.

thing else I love to do that involves no step-taking. Since learning about the amazing benefits of walking, I have resumed my daily trek with a renewed determination to complete it every day. And I’m trying something new: Before sitting down to my computer, I set the timer on the kitchen stove for 20 minutes. When it beeps, I get up, turn it off and walk twice around our downstairs. Through the dining room, into the living room and around the center of the room, back to the dining room, into the kitchen and on to the back porch, back to the kitchen and the whole thing over again takes about 100 steps. Before resuming my seat, I set the timer again. Yesterday, I did that 11 times, for 1,100 steps. Add that to my walk, 4,000 steps, and round up because surely I am up and moving around more than that and I figure that through the day, I took about 6,000 steps. Short of the recommended 10,000 steps that I read about, but a step — or 6,000 of them, rather — in the right direction. Of course, spring is coming. Soon the days of sitting inside and looking out at the weather will be over and getting thousands of steps in during the day will be a matter of routine. Too, gone for a while will be the days of sitting on the couch and reading newspaper and magazine articles. I still might not be doing all that I should. But I won’t know it.

Sussex cost-cutting measures include an auto auction By Ronald MacArthur

Sussex County Deputy Administrator Hal Godwin is on a mission to save money in the county’s fleet department. A little can go a long way because the county spends more than $1 million a year to keep its fleet of 246 vehicles and 55 trailers moving. Included in that cost is $370,000 for fuel and $161,000 for insurance. Last fiscal year the county’s vehicles traveled more than 2.3 million miles. Godwin recently outlined a long list of recommended changes in the operation of the county’s fleet aimed at efficiency, better record keeping and cost cutting. He said the county could see some savings in the $237,000 spent on maintenance and repairs last fiscal year. Purchasing more equipment could save $25,000 right away. Routine maintenance and repair work, including oil changes, is done by county mechanics, but that can be expanded, said Godwin. He said too much work is done

by outside shops that could be done inhouse. “We can’t change a flat,” he said. Godwin offered several possible changes that could end up saving the county money. Purchasing $16,000 worth of equipment to expand maintenance and service work done by county staff would save $25,000 immediately. With new equipment, county mechanics would be able to mount and balance tires, flush fluids and perform air conditioning recharges. He said something as simple as extending the time between oil changes, from every 3,000 miles to every 5,000 miles, would save money. County council voted to change to a new fuel distribution system already used by the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) department. Godwin said a switch to the Fuel Man card system would save the county 8 cents to 10 cents per gallon, provide better record keeping and allow county employees to fill up at any gas station without returning to the county garage in Georgetown.

Godwin said better control is needed in purchasing parts, accessories and tires because prices between vendors vary so greatly. He said the fleet staff caught one vendor who charged $23 for valve stems, an item that normally sells for $2. He said officials have instituted a twicea-year sell-off of surplus county vehicles. The first sale of nine vehicles is scheduled for Saturday, March 13, and another will be scheduled in September. The auction will be in the parking lot of the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center, 21911 Rudder Lane, at the Sussex County Airport east of Georgetown. Prospective buyers can begin inspecting vehicles at 10 a.m. that day. The auction will follow at noon. Nine automobiles, a mixture of Ford and Chevrolet cars and trucks, will be on the auction block. The vehicles range from 1995 to 2003 models. The County has declared the vehicles as ‘surplus’ cars and trucks that no longer fit within the operational needs of the County’s fleet.

The vehicles will be sold to the highest bidders ‘as is’ with no guarantee or warranty. Only cash payment will be accepted. Proceeds from the auction will go directly to the County government. Anyone from the public is invited to bid, but the auction is closed to County employees. For details contact Deputy County Administrator Harold Godwin at 854-5060. Other recommendations include more training for the county’s five mechanics and purchase of an online system to assist mechanics. Godwin said most of the recommendations could be instituted without council approval. The county provides vehicles for paramedics, the Sheriff’s Office, planning and zoning inspectors, constables, water and sewer services and engineering, libraries, mapping staff and community development staff. Nearly half the county’s vehicles are assigned to staff in the water and sewer department at a cost of $373,000, the highest of any department.

MORNING STAR • MARCH 11 - 17, 2010

The 2010 season schedule at the Delaware International Speedway is one of the most ambitious in the track’s history. Along with some long time staples such as six United Racing Company sprint car dates, the Camp Barnes Benefit and five weekly points divisions the track has also added surprises. The new events include the return of “Twin 20’s” nights for both the NAPA Big Block Modified and the Super Late Models plus an “All Out 100” feature only night. One of the biggest changes for the 2010 season will be a change in the dates and times of the Delaware State Dirt Track Championship. This year’s event will be held on Friday and Saturday nights, October 22 and 23. The traditional tacky night time surface that the track is noted for should provide some outstanding side by side racing. “Our tradition dates were in direct conflict with very popular local “Pumpkin Chunkin,” said promoter Charlie Cathell. “The World Championships in Charlotte, N.C., are also on the previous date and along with the World of Outlaw Late Models and Sprint Cars they are adding the big block modifieds this year plus I was never very satisfied with the single file racing that the daytime surface provided.” The season will open in traditional fashion with a “Tune and Test” on Saturday night April 3 followed by the season opener – “Delmar Night” on Saturday night, April 10. Rounding out the month will be the first of six URC appearances on April 17 and the William J. Cathell Memorial on April 24, which will include the Little Lincoln and Vintage Stock Cars along with the five weekly divisions. The month of May will be filled with specials. The Third Annual “Kyle Dixon Memorial” will be on May 1 and will include the Slide for 5. The “World of Outlaw Late Models” return on Thursday night, May 13. On May 15 it will be “Topless Night” as all weekly division will run minus their roofs. “Wings & Things” for the Late Models will take place May 22 and the URC Sprints make their second stop on “R.C. Holloway Night” May 29. For more information and the complete schedule log on to www.delawareracing.com. Fans can now also keep up to date on both Facebook and Twitter by becoming fans of Delaware Racing. For more information contact the speedway office at (302) 875-1911 or by e-mail at dragway@delawareracing.com.

U.S. 13 Dragway prepares for start of race season The 47th consecutive season of drag racing at the U.S. 13 Dragway is ready to roar into action as soon as winter loosens its grip on Delmarva. Tune and Test sessions are scheduled for the first two Sunday’s in March with opening day scheduled for Sunday, March 21. The Summit E.T. Point Series points will be ushered in by the Easter Bunny on Sunday, April 4. That event will be followed by a Wednesday night “Tune and Test.” The first of six “Bad 8” programs takes place on April 25 with the remainder spread throughout the season. Gates open for Sunday events at 10 a.m. with time runs at 11 a.m. and eliminations around 2:30 p.m. Gates open for Sunday “Tune and Test” days at 11 a.m. with runs from noon until 5 p.m. Friday night racing open at 3:30 p.m. with time runs beginning at 4:30 p.m. and eliminations at approximately 8 p.m. For more information and a complete schedule log on to www.delawareracing.com or contact the dragway office at (302) 875-1911.

Mezuzah at Governor’s mansion

Governor Jack A. Markell, in a ceremony with rabbis and others from Delaware’s Jewish community, placed the first Mezuzah at the Governor’s Mansion, Woodburn. This is the first time that a governor of Jewish faith is residing in Woodburn. Mezuzah, literally translated means “doorpost.” The Mezuzah is a small case containing a scroll of parchment with two chapters from the Torah in which God commands the faithful to keep His words in their minds and hearts. It is meant to serve as a constant reminder of God’s presence and commandments. The Mezuzah was given to the governor as an inauguration gift and was placed on the door frame of French doors in the parlor on the first floor.

Depression Support Group

There is a free bimonthly Depression

Chart predicts height and weight By Dr. Anthony Policastro Obesity continues to be a problem. In fact, over the years, obesity has become more of a problem in children. There are different ways to explain to parents about their children being overweight. When you tell a parent that their child is overweight, we see several reactions. The most common is to just take the information in. There seems to be a sense that just because a child is overweight now, there will not be a problem later. Other parents become angry and take the information personally. They act like you are accusing them of making their child overweight. This reaction makes the diagnosis difficult to deal with. I have found that one way of addressing weight issues is by using growth charts. There are standard growth curves that we use. We find the child’s age on the growth chart and plot their height and weight which allows us to do several things. The first is that we can compare the child’s height and weight to other children his/her age. For example, if the child is average height and weight, then they are considered average. If height is above average, they are tall for their age. If the weight

matches the height, then they are the right weight for their height. The second thing we can do is predict what to expect in the future. Usually, there is no predictive value to a single measurement. However, I frequently see children for whom I have 5, 6 or 7 years worth of measurements. When that happens, it is more accurate to predict the future height and weight. When we have several years of measurements, we can usually accurately predict the child’s final height. I can also look at the weight and tell them that prediction. If I tell a parent their child is overweight, it might or might not make an impression. However, if I predict that their child will weigh 300 or 350 pounds when they are full grown, it usually makes a more distinct impression. Telling parents what they can expect in the future is sometimes a shock. It is important to pay attention to our children’s weight. The question might not be how much they weigh now but rather how much they will weigh when they are grown. This is a good conversation for parents to have with their child’s doctor before the weight gets to the point where it is clearly too much.

How to deal with a chronic cough It wakes you up in the middle of the night. It disrupts your day. And, it leaves you gasping for air and grasping for answers. Why won’t that nagging cough go away? If you have a chronic cough, you’re not alone. Last year, coughing accounted for 30-million doctors’ visits in the United States, and was the fourth leading reason for patients to go to their doctor. And, there are many Americans with “chronic coughs” lasting for years. “While some coughs are relatively benign, others could be the sign of something much worse, such as cancer,” said Bayhealth Pulmonologist Hakim Azfar Ali, MBBS, MD, FCCP. “There are so many possible causes for a cough. It starts with cough receptors in your brain, and then there could be issues with your stomach, your lungs, your throat or even your heart. It could even stem from other medications such as ACE inhibitors,” said Dr. Ali. Ali notes that upper airway problems in the nose, throat and sinuses cause up to 40 percent of coughs. Asthma is responsible

for about 20 percent of coughs. Stomach acid reflux accounts for about 15 percent of cases. Then, there are the less common instances when chronic coughing is the symptom for a far more serious condition such as cancer. In some rare instances, an enlarged atrium in the heart may press against nerves which trigger the cough reflex. However, smoking is by far the largest, most controllable cause of coughing. “Smoking can cause bronchitis or emphysema, which triggers constant coughing,” said Dr. Ali. Doctors can develop clues through an exam. If there are still no definitive answers, diagnostics such as X-Rays, CTScans, and bronchoscopies may provide additional clues to the doctor. After a diagnosis, treatment can be a slow process. “Treatment may take months or years. And, patients have to be compliant and not stop their medication just because they don’t see results in the first few days,” said Dr. Ali. Hakim Azfar Ali, MBBS, MD, FCCP, is a pulmonologist at Bayhealth Medical Center. To schedule an appointment, call 674-7155.

We were taught to respect others and their belongings

How much our lifestyles, manners and day-to-day living have changed through the years came into front and center view on a trip to one of our favorite restaurants for what we thought would be an enjoyable meal after attending church on a recent Sunday. We had barely been seated and placed our meal order when a group of ten came into the dining room. Ages of the group ranged from grandparents down to several small children. The youngest appeared to be about five or six years old. The group had also been to church. We could tell this by the discussion some of the members were having regarding the pastor’s sermon. By the tone of some of the voices, the pastor to this group was on the hot seat since he had said something they obviously did not agree with. The group was well mannered, the children were busy playing with the small table game provided by the waitress. And then the bubble burst. Quick as a flash the youngest child reached out and literally grabbed the purse belonging to her mother, spilled several of the contents on the tabletop and proceeded to dig into the purse in search of who knows what. Suddenly the child’s mother realized what was happening, grabbed the purse, snatched the child by the shoulder and gave her a large shake, then swatted the shoulder of the child with a heavy slap. Naturally the little girl began crying and shouting to her mother at the same time. In short order, the young mother grabbed the purse, hit the child, and in a loud voice that could be heard throughout the room told the child, “Shut up or you will really get it!” With that the child looked at her father, then at her mother and responded, “You shut up, too.” At this point, the rest of the group appeared to be embarrassed, but not the young parents. The mother explained to the father that she was sick of the kid rifling through her purse and implied that the young father was the cause of the problem. Once again the mother told the child to “shut up” in a rather loud voice. And in a speedy reverse mood, asked the kid what she wanted for her meal! As the child placed her order for French fries and a soda, she continued to sniffle and once again told her mother to “shut up.” Believe me, I wasn’t the only person there who was trying to inconspicuously watch what was happening. My first thought was how times have changed through the years.

Moments With Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton Never, never ever, in the 62 years of my life that my mother lived, would I have thought of telling her to “shut up.” Those two words were on the “do not ever speak those words in this house” list. By the same token, in all of those years of living with or near my mother, did I here her tell anyone “shut up.” She told us to be quiet, or “quiet down,” but never used the harsh words, “shut up.” Unfortunately, those two words seem to be the “in” words in general speech in our society in today’s world. Several times recently I have heard television personalities say, “Shut up.” The phrase has been used in place of “You’re kidding me,” or other phrases that could have been used. What’s more, never would it have occurred to me to rifle through my mother’s purse. This was something that would incur punishment I don’t even want to think about. My generation was told to speak with respect to our parents and other elders. We were also taught to respect others and their belongings. We were the generation who grew up with most mothers who did not work away from home, did not go out to a restaurant except for a very special occasion and who grew up and lived in a totally different world than today’s youth. Young people of today’s world cannot imagine that some of us enjoyed what the modern kids refer to as “so little.” We did not have cell phones, personal computers or our own plush automobiles. We walked all over town or wherever we wanted to go for the most part rather than expect to be driven. We had a curfew, did not have shopping malls and enjoyed family outings. Most definitely, even in our wildest dreams, would we have ever thought of telling our parents, “Shut up.” Younger generations stare in wonder as some of us recall the “good old days.” They feel we were underprivileged, and place us in the same generation as the pilgrims who settled in this nation. Times have certainly changed!

Letters to the Editor

A view on Laurel Schools concerning the Referendum

My name is Ed Carmine. I am a life long resident and member of the business community in Laurel. I felt it was my responsibility to get involved in the upcoming referendum because I feel that now is not the time to be raising taxes. I set out to learn more about the referendum & the current conditions of the schools. I have finished touring the schools, with my last stop being the high school yesterday. I spent 2 hours there and 1/2 hour at the superintendent’s office again after that. I had no idea how political the school system is. My concerns fell on deaf ears at the superintendent’s office. They want their “piece of the pie” as they say. They don’t understand the ramifications of the referendum from a business standpoint nor do they share my concerns of putting the cart before the horse in respect to hoping that businesses will want to move here because of the new schools regardless of the higher taxes that would put our district the highest in the county. In these days our federal government, state government, and county governments struggle to balance their budgets. Our citizens are fighting high unemployment and lack of jobs in the area. Our farmers have a tough year ahead of them as well. We also must take into consideration the corruption at our local level both in our school district and our town. Our state does not have 100 million dollars to give us for construction. Our state has to sell bonds to come up with the money. The state also relies on the Triple A bond rating it has. If that bond rating drops during the next 20-25 years will our schools get shortchanged or will our taxes go up even higher to pay the difference? I was told yesterday that is the way projects get done in our state. There is no state law preventing our district from using state funds for renovation. I feel our district and referendum committee has purposely misled the community by repeatedly stating that the funds could not be used to renovate. I’ve spent an hour at West Laurel and an hour at North Laurel, two hours at the middle/intermediate school, two hours at the high school, and an hour and a half total at the superintendent’s office over the course of the last few days. I’ve spoken to administrators, principals, teachers, nurses, custodians, Mr. Maranucci, Mr. Venables, and quite a few concerned citizens and business owners in this town. I have been down in every boiler room, maintenance closet, several classrooms, nurses’ offices,

cafeterias, etc. In every school I asked to be shown the worst of the worst as to attain reasoning behind the school district’s decision. I also inquired about funding, whether or not the staff felt they were being funded properly. I asked about our new superintendent’s performance and attendance in the schools. I have tried to leave no stone unturned. In my opinion the Middle/Intermediate School is the worst building in the district, and the only one that should be torn down. It’s the only school left with oil boilers. They are overcrowded. The plaster and paint is falling off the walls. The plumbing is atrocious. The inefficiency of the heating system was terribly evident when while walking the school I turned a corner to see an entire class plus teacher in the hallway because the temperature in the classroom was every bit of 90 degrees. The school has inadequate electrical service for all the technology that has been added to the school. The South side of the field house has had braces added to it because the roof has started to give way. I observed at least a half a dozen sink fixtures that had no hot water. The locker rooms had to have most of the lockers removed to accommodate the larger classes. The elevator that was installed for handicap access breaks down a lot and was broke down when I was there. A lot of the bathrooms are not handicap accessible. All of this is even echoed in some of the students’ work I’ve seen on the bulletin boards there. West Laurel was my next stop. The main issues at that school are the roof leaks and the overcrowding. The pre-K classes are held in a trailer off the side of the school. There is quite a bit of room behind that school to add on and even build another parking lot, as parking is an issue during events there. Their boilers have been upgraded to gas and their boiler room appeared much cleaner and nicer than the boiler room in the middle school even though it is a smaller room. There is nothing at the school that a new roof and a new wing can’t fix. Perhaps upgrading the electrical service and some plumbing work. One has to understand that the majority of piping in the schools is cast iron and with that iron stains in the sinks and toilets are bound to happen but I can’t see tearing the entire school down because of it. North Laurel was next. North Laurel is the best school in the district in my opinion. They also have quite a bit of unused land on that property on which the school

can be expanded. They suffer from overcrowding, roof leaks, iron stains, a poorly designed auditorium that echoes sound. Again mostly mechanical issues. The forced air heat units in the rooms are outdated and should be replaced. That school has partial central air in the ‘90s wing and the ‘90s cafeteria/auditorium, perhaps that can be expanded to the entire school. Its boiler room was the nicest I’ve seen in the entire district. They also have gas boilers. They don’t have the heating irregularities like the other schools, according to the staff. According to the Questions & Answers document provided by the district the demolition of North Laurel will cost $3.3 million to tear down the best school in the district. Think about that. The high school was my last stop. The general feeling in the district is that this school is the worst school. Even I jumped on that bandwagon initially. The high school is in decent shape. They are suffering some overcrowding as well. I’d like to see the heating and cooling units removed from the roof and placed on the ground. Replacement of the flat roof with a pitched standing seam roof would further ensure the buildings longevity. The partitions added in the ‘80s should all be removed and walls rebuilt with more electrical service. The duct work should be replaced and properly reinstalled to allow sufficient airflow throughout the school. What I did not see is any good reason to tear down a perfectly good building. The roof does leak in one spot in the gymnasium at the moment and removal of the units from the roof would certainly help its future condition if we chose to hold off on roof replacement. There is plenty of room on that lot to expand the high school as well in my opinion. I want to note that the custodial team in this district is quite admirable. These guys do the best with what they are given and come to aid at a moment’s notice. It is quite a selfless job. They are quite proud to be here and I’m proud to have them in our district. Our teachers and principals are some of the nicest folks I’ve had the privilege of meeting and speaking to. They, like the custodians, do the best they can with what they have. I would really like to help them with the problems in our schools, but I disagree wholeheartedly with the current referendum proposal. In my opinion this not the time to build an entirely new school district. Individuals & businesses are all struggling during these tough economic times to make ends meet. I feel that $36

million is too much of an investment to be asking for at one time. Now that the community is aware of this problem, we can start to work on solutions as a whole. It is a shame that the district withheld all of the problems and let them compound year after year without let us in the community know what is going on. As far as Mr. McCoy is concerned. He is in a tough spot. He’s new. A lot of us don’t know him. He has been the main promoter of the referendum. Thus the scrutiny of his job is bound to happen. In speaking with the staff at the schools the majority echoed that he is much better than what we used to have and that he does go into the schools and the classrooms and is there often. He took the time to speak to me yesterday and I appreciate that, but we do not see eye to eye on the referendum. I respect his opinion as, I hope, he respects mine. My last concern is the financial disposition of the district. There are no checks and balances in place to prevent further misappropriation of funds. I have a couple questions about the school’s budget that cannot be answered because there is no one in the finance manager’s position that can answer them at the moment. Even the folks at the superintendent’s office seemed clueless about their budget. There should be more than one person overseeing the finances of this district. Until that changes I am hesitant on approving any funding increase. I’ve tried to include everything I’ve seen and heard over the last few days and weeks. I’ve tried to be an unbiased observer. Now it’s up to you, the citizens and taxpayers of this community to make your own observations and decisions. Ed Carmine Laurel

Note to readers

In the past the Laurel Star has been criticized for running letters that are in opposition to the referendum. However, we feel the paper has an obligation to be fair to those on both sides of an issue. Since this referendum is so important to the future of the Laurel School District, we will publish in the next edition any letters or comments, pro or con, that we can verify. We will not publish any letters concerning the referendum in the March 25 edition for this reason: If some misinformation is printed in that edition, we would not have another edition before the March 31 referendum to set the record straight.

Top 10 reasons to support free enterprise system As the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was preparing its American Free Enterprise “Dream Big” campaign, we asked ourselves and many others an important question: What do we value most about living in a country powered by free enterprise? Here is our top 10 list, in no particular order: (1) Jobs. Free enterprise is the only system that can create the 20 million jobs that we’ll need in the next decade. (2) Opportunity. Regardless of wealth, status, or background, you have a chance to rise as high as your talent and hard work can take you. (3) Freedom of Choice. You are free to choose your own path. No one picks your profession or limits what you can do or become. (4) Innovation. Free enterprise encourages it, embraces it, and rewards it. Free enterprise excels in developing solutions. (5) Small Business. Almost anyone in America can start a business if he or she really wants to. The barriers are low, the opportunities are endless, and if you fail, you can get up off the floor and try again. (6) Mobility. No other society offers so many avenues for individuals, families, and succeeding generations to move up the

ladder of success. (7) Quality of Life. Free enterprise supports a quality of life that previous generations could only dream of. We are living longer and enjoying an unsurpassed level of material comforts because of free enterprise. (8) A Progressive Society. A strong economy, powered by free enterprise, generates revenues to educate our children, care for the sick and elderly, provide compassionate support for the less fortunate, and clean our environment. (9) A Better World. The size and success of our free enterprise economy has given the United States an unmatched capacity to address global challenges and improve the world. (10) The American Dream. It could not exist without free enterprise, for it is our economic freedom that enables us to achieve our dreams. It is free enterprise that breathes life into the promise of America — that a better life is always within our grasp and our country’s best days are yet to come. These are the reasons why we think that the free enterprise system is worth keeping and worth standing up for. Please tell us your reasons and take the free enterprise

A man requires surgery to remove his left leg. He consults with the surgeon; plans are made for surgery the next morning. Morning comes and the surgeon arrives still intoxicated from a night on the
