The entire King family, Seaford, will participate in the Western Sussex Relay for Life Friday night, to help raise money for the American Cancer Society. Dena's father died of cancer in 2005 and she has been an active volunteer with the relay since then. She and Aaron are making oversized ruby slippers to put around the walking track at the relay, whose motto is, "There's no place like hope." The King's children are Emily and Matthew.

Relay for Life weekend ‘There’s no place like hope’ is 2007 theme By Lynn R. Parks Dena King does not hesitate to encourage people to attend the Western Sussex Relay for Life, an annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. “Just come,” she tells anyone who asks. “Just be there. It is a wonderful place to be. You can feel it as soon as you get there.” King, Seaford, is a volunteer for the annual relay, during which volunteers walk laps around a track to raise money. She and her husband, Aaron, are building giant red ruby slippers to put around the walking track for this year’s relay, set for Friday night at the Mears

Campus of Nanticoke Health Services. The theme of this year’s relay is, “There’s no place like hope,” a play on Dorothy’s refrain in the “Wizard of Oz,” “There’s no place like home.” Dorothy, of course, found magic in her red ruby slippers. King first became involved in the relay in 2005, when her father, Jack Palen, Fallston, Md., was dying of cancer. “My dad was very sick, and I couldn’t be at the relay that first year, but I went to the survivor’s dinner,” she said. The survivor’s dinner is traditionally held the night before the relay. Palen died in September 2005. “Right after that, I jumped right into

the relay,” King said. “I never realized how many people around here had been affected by cancer. And I met some wonderful people. It’s really a community—we pray for each other, we ask about doctor’s visits. And when something does happen, we support each other.” Last year, King’s brother, John Jr., also of Fallston, attended the relay. “He was just 18 when our dad died, and it was very hard for him,” she said. “But at the relay, he was able to realize that we aren’t the only family going through this. And everyone there is so Continued on page 12

Strawberry fest & garden tour set for this weekend By Virginia “Mike” Barton The Kentucky Derby is not just a horse race. The Kentucky Derby is a tradition held at Churchill Downs each first Saturday in May. Thousands of spectators flock to the race to participate in a variety of ways. Barbara Wise, chairwoman of the first Strawberry Festival and Laurel Garden Tour, understands the adrenaline rush of Derby participants. She and her committee from St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Laurel, along with members of the Laurel Garden Club and friends of the club, are in the final stages of preparation for what they hope will become an annual event on the third Saturday in May. The gardeners have their bushes, plants and growing greens in a state of readiness. And the strawberries are almost at peak performance. Everything Strawberry will commence at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 19, with scrapple sandwiches, sweet treats and hot and cold beverages served at St. Philip’s, 600 S. Central Ave. Strawberries will be sold in shortcakes, preserves, jellies and cakes, dipped in chocolate, by the quart or bucket and in a variety of other taste treats including ice cream. Garden tour tickets may be purchased at St. Philip’s, $8 in advance, $10 the day

of festival. St. Philip’s will also serve lunch, featuring chicken salad along with other luncheon specialties. Crafters, baked goods, a nearly-new table, flea market, attic treasures, a handquilted quilt and other special items will be sold inside the church’s educational building and from tables outside the church. To continue the festive weekend, Old Christ Church will host a concert featuring local singers at 3 p.m. Sunday. Mayor John Shwed has declared May a special month in Laurel and local gardeners as well as town workers have been participating in a massive cleanup and planting frenzy. Members of St. Philip’s parish are ready for the “big event” and invite area residents and visitors to visit Laurel on Saturday, May 19. Everything Strawberry promises to be a day of renewing friendships, viewing the gardens on the tour and enjoying strawberries prepared in a myriad of ways. The day promises to provide “something for everyone,” Wise said. Unlike the Kentucky Derby, the event won’t feature any horses, she added. But, “we will offer the best strawberries available, special treats, and a good time for one and all.”

Memorial Day services On May 28, at 10:30 a.m., the Seaford Veterans Committee will host a Memorial Day parade which will begin at the corners of Pennsylvania Avenue and Nylon boulevard. The parade will travel north on Nylon Boulevard to the Kiwanis Park on Stein Highway, Seaford. At 11 a.m., Memorial Day Services will begin at the Kiwanis Park followed by a short dedication of Memorial Bricks that have been placed along the walk honoring those who have served their country.

Lo-Mar, in Seaford for more than 60 years, is closing Smart Office Services will still sell to commercial customers By Lynn R. Parks Lo-Mar, the office-supply store that has served the Seaford area for 62 years, is closing. Owner Allen Handy said Monday that Smart Office Services, an office supply company based in Glen Burnie, Md., has bought the business and will close the retail store on Norman Eskridge Highway on May 31. Smart Office Services will continue selling office supplies to commercial customers in the area. “They have no interest in trying to preserve the retail business,” Handy said. “They will let that go.” Handy said that retail sales are only about 20 percent of Lo-Mar’s business. “I know it was convenient for some people to be able to come here instead of going out on the highway, but the retail we did here was not really the profitable end of the business,” he said. Handy said that his was the only independently-owned office supply store on the east coast, from Norfolk, Va., to Wilmington. “I kind of prided myself on taking care of everybody,” Handy added. “It was always our policy that no order was too small for delivery. Now, that will be over.” The end of Lo-Mar, he said, is symptomatic of what he calls a “disturbing trend” in business throughout the country. “This whole idea of going wherever

you need to go to get the lowest price feeds into the notion of, ‘Hooray for me, to heck with him,’” he said. “And that’s part of the selfish mood we have in our country today. “Supporting your local businesses doesn’t seem very important in comparison to everything else we have to think about,” he added. “But I see what has happened, and how it is having far-reaching effects. If you have a town that doesn’t have any local businesses, I don’t think you have a community.” Handy and his wife, Jessye, bought LoMar in June 1980 from its founders, Fred Miles, Arnold Greenabaum and Jimmy Monaco. Those three men had just moved the store from its original site on Stein Highway to High Street, at a time that was “the beginning of the end of the way old office supply stores used to work,” Handy said. New office-supply companies like Staples and Office Depot arranged their goods on shelves, much like displays in grocery stores. “No longer could we just stack things up in boxes and expect to sell it,” Handy said. The Handys moved Lo-Mar to its current building, where everything could be easily displayed, in 1997. They will retain ownership of that building, he said, and rent it out, probably as professional offices.

Allen and Jessye Handy are selling their office-supply store, Lo-Mar, after 27 years in the business. The store associated with the 62-year-old business will be closed. Photo by Lynn R. Parks

Allen Handy was just 25 when he bought the business, his wife was just 24. Now 52 and 51, they will take time to rest and figure out what they want to do next. “It will be nice to just sit back, to not have deadlines, and see what we want to do,” he said.

“I feel very fortunate that I lasted 27 years,” he added. “I will always be extremely grateful to the customers and the business that I had. “I always knew that one day, the ride would end and I would have to get off. That day is here.”

Good news for Delaware pets

Ron Marvel and his 6 year old dog Rusty (above) demonstrate the new breathing masks for pets. Delaware has become the first state to equip all its fire departments with the masks. Phyllis Roby and her 6 month old Yorkshire Terrier Hallie (right) show how the masks can suit pets of all sizes. Roby, along with fellow animal enthusiast Cheryl Costello, helped these pet protecting devices become part of every fire company in Delaware’s necessary equipment. This effort was made possible by the efforts of the fire departments as well as the support of the Mispillion Kennel Club and the Cat Fanciers’ Association. Photos by Daniel Richardson

MORNING STAR ✳ MAY 17 - 23, 2007


Proposed new school district lines a concern By Cathy Shufelt The Woodbridge School Board held a public hearing on May 8, 2007 to present information on potential new school district boundaries. Mr. Bassett, superintendent of administrative services, presented the board and community members with information on the proposed new school district boundaries. Current school district boundaries in the state are based on the 1973 recommendations of school boards and educators working at that time. The compilation of district boundary information is known as the “Mowrey” book named after Mr. Roger Mowrey who compiled the reports and data collected by school districts during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Reassignment of school districts will enable schools to be in compliance with Senate Bill 329, which requires school district boundaries to follow naturally occurring boundaries such as waterways and existing roads. The “Mowrey” lines follow property lines and other boundaries that have changed over time resulting in some families having their property falling into two school districts at the same time. Working with Lake Forest School District and Milford School District officials, and the Delaware State Department of Education, Woodbridge school administrators have designed a plan to put them in compliance with Senate Bill 329. Other school districts in the area such as Indian River are also reassigning their district boundaries for a more equitable distribution of the area’s tax base, and more sensible borders between districts. Mr. Bassett stated that school districts are working to “make it (proposed boundaries) the best for all school districts, less confusing, as well as what’s best for students...” The new boundaries will effect 28 current students. However, only 7 students (3 families) would need to take advantage of the “School Choice” option. School Choice allows families who wish to remain in their current school district the option to do so. Families were guaranteed this option and transportation. Parents questioned whether or not other school districts currently involved in this reassignment of district boundaries would make the same guarantees. Mr. Bassett

stated that in working with Milford and Lake Forest school districts he understood this would be guaranteed by them as well. School district boundaries were first discussed during the Woodbridge School District’s January 2007 meeting. At that meeting, Dr. Kevin Carson, superintendent of the Woodbridge School District, commented that redefining the boundaries “makes sense” and that making the districts “as even as possible” as well as clearing up “confusion about some of the properties” in question will be an “advantage for all districts.” The recent approval of an annexation request for property just south of Bridgeville’s Heritage Shores community will add approximately 1800 new “moderately priced” homes to the area and possibly 450 new students to the Woodbridge School District. As part of the annexation of this property, the Woodbridge School District requested 20 acres for future school buildings. This new plan will need to be presented to the Department of Education in June, and, if approved, would go into effect in time for the 2007-2008 school year. Several concerned parents and local residents attended the meeting. Teresa DeFord wants a written guarantee that school choice and appropriate transportation will be provided by all district’s involved. Other concerns include timing of various bus routes so buses have adequate space to maneuver, dividing rural roads with different districts on either side, and determination of Little League teams. Dr. Carson responded that any Little League questions will need to be addressed to the Little League administration since schools do not determine those teams. Other residents offered other alternatives to the proposed plan based on their concerns for the need to reassign district boundaries in the not too distant future. Mr. Martin Shuey suggested that school district boundaries be determined by county lines. This would eliminate any confusion should any changes in roads, etc. occur in the future, and, thus, eliminate the need to redo district lines. Anyone with questions about this process, or who wish to know specifically what changes will be made, should contact their local school district office.

Business Seaford Credit Union to build new branch By Jane Watson On Friday, May 11, the Seaford Federal Credit Union broke ground for a branch office located on Rt. 113, at the border between Millsboro and Dagsboro. Leading the ceremony was CEO John Watson who had with him Project & Systems Manager Kathryn Greenwood, Marketing Director and Loan Officer Mary Adams and Board Member Jane Watson of the credit union. Scott Carey, president of All American Mortgage Co. and Monty Carey of Softail, LLC, were the hosts representing the business partners and landlords. Joining them were state and local officials Sen. George H. Bunting, Jr., Rep. Gregory Hastings of the 41st District and Dagsboro Mayor Wayne Baker. Also attending were builder Mike Truitt of Gillis Gilkerson, Fred Horn, the building architect, and designer Ernie Olds of Becker Morgan. In his opening remarks, Watson explained, "The Seaford Credit Union's mission has always been to bring financial security to all people in Sussex County by providing person to person help with very low fees and in particular no punitive fees. Opening this branch will enhance that by better introducing this service to people in the rapidly growing southeast quadrant of

Sussex County." Carey also welcomed the participants and pointed out that "the Seaford Credit Union is a great institution that has great rates, but more importantly personalized service. The Dagsboro office will be the only credit union south of Millsboro serving all of Sussex County." After the ceremonial ground breaking, refreshments were served in the All American Mortgage and Nationwide Insurance office building adjacent to the new branch site. Discussions revealed that the credit union was chartered by the National Credit Union Administration in 1970 with the objective of providing financial services to people who were not served by existing banks. For 10 years, the credit union was operated by volunteers from St. Luke's Episcopal Church, who spearheaded the action, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, whose members sought a credit union, and Head Start, who worked with underserved individuals. The credit union was so successful that professional management and paid staff were installed in 1980. It has since grown into a top rated credit union, providing all the services available from any financial institution to all of Sussex County.

Price wins community award Price Honda-Acura, an area car dealership, received a Community Partner Award from the Delaware State Education Association at the annual Celebration of Leadership Banquet on March 23 at the Rollins Conference Center at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover. The dealership was recognized for its support of public education. The Price Reading Challenge was created to fight illiteracy by encouraging first graders to read 66 books during the year. For the past five years, Price Honda-Acura has partnered with the Capital School District in Dover and its seven elementary schools to provide students with fun times and incentives to improve their reading. Price Honda-Acura gives children incentives and prizes totaling over $25,000. On the third Thursday of every month, all first-grade students in the Capital School District and their families are in-

vited to the dealership for Bedtime Storytime, which gives parents an opportunity to participate in the program. A volunteer teacher or employee reads stories to the students, and guest characters and Price Honda-Acura’s mascot, the Price Penguin, make special appearances. Before leaving, children and their parents enjoy cookies and milk and door prizes, all of which are distributed by volunteer school staff and Price employees. This past year, Bedtime Storytime attendance ran between 150 and 220 children per event. “We’ve touched the lives of many children and are happy this program has been so successful,” Mike Palen, general manager of Price Honda-Acura, said. Price Automotive Group operates dealerships in New Castle (Toyota and Scion), Dover (Honda and Acura), and Salisbury, Md. (Pontiac, Buick and GMC).

Patti Bogetti, Price Reading Challenge Coordinator, congratules Mike Palen, general manager of Price Honda-Acura.

Old Christ Church to hold Sunday-morning services By Lynn R. Parks The best way to ensure that Old Christ Church will still be standing generations from now is to get people going there today, said Edward “Ned” Fowler, Laurel. “We’ve got to keep people coming through the door,” said Fowler, member of the Old Christ Church League, which maintains the Laurel church. Once people visit the pre-Revolutionary War church, they will understand its value, he said, and hopefully contribute to its maintenance. The church needs more than $25,000 in work, including a new paint job, windows, shutters and doors. For two months last summer, for the first time since the Civil War, Old Christ Church was opened for regular Sunday services. This summer, the church will hold Sunday-morning services even longer, from May 27 through Oct. 7. Several of those services will be conducted jointly with St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, which owns Old Christ Church. “We want people to come and worship with us, as well as just sit and stare at this beautiful building,” said the Rev. Rita Nelson, priest at St. Philip’s. Old Christ Church, originally called Christ Church, Broad Creek, was completed in 1772 as part of the Church of England’s Stepney parish of Somerset County, Md., formed in the late 1600s. Two other such “chapels of ease” for the Stepney parish were built that century: Spring Hill near Hebron, Md., in 1773 and Goddard’s Chapel, 1710, the predecessor of St. Pe-

ter’s in Salisbury, Md. Regular services at Christ Church, Broad Creek, were held until around the time of the Civil War, when St. Philip’s Episcopal Church became the main church for the Laurel parish. In addition to St. Philip’s, three other area Episcopal churches can trace their histories to Old Christ Church: All Saints in Delmar, St. Luke’s in Seaford and St. Mary’s in Bridgeville. Unlike most colonial churches, including those in the Stepney parish, Old Christ Church has undergone no modernization since its construction. The interior, made of native yellow pine, is still unpainted. No electric lights illuminate the 43 wooden box pews and two-deck pulpit, no plumbing, heating or air conditioning contribute to visitors’ comfort. “There are around 250 churches like Old Christ Church along the Atlantic coast, but this is one of only about a dozen to have survived unaltered,” Fowler said. “Every time I walk through the doors, I am still amazed that it is just the way it used to be.” Fowler attributes that survival to “benign neglect” on the part of the church’s owners. “It is interesting to go back and read the minutes of old parish meetings,” he said. “Even years ago, people were complaining that Old Christ Church needed this and Old Christ Church needed that, but of course most of the money went to St. Philip’s, because that was where the people were.” The church will kick off its summer season this weekend. On Saturday, it will be part of the Laurel garden tour. Guides

will be at Old Christ Church from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., to point out to visitors its many historic features. And on Sunday, at 3 p.m., the church will host a benefit concert, featuring several local singers. Mary Ann Torkelson, organist at St. Philip’s, will accompany the singers on the electronic keyboard. Admission to the concert is free. “But we will accept good will offerings to help with maintenance and preservation of Old Christ Church,” Fowler said. The Sunday-morning services will start May 27, Whit Sunday or Pentecost, with a joint service with St. Philip’s, St. Luke’s and All Saints. “Those are all the offshoots of Old Christ Church and we will have a walloping good time renewing old friendships,” Fowler said. On July 1, the church will host Patriotic Sunday, another joint service with St. Philip’s. “We will be singing every patriotic song known to man,” Nelson said. A picnic on the church lawn will follow the service. The church will provide drinks, hot dogs and hamburgers; participants are asked to bring covered dishes. On Oct. 7, Old Christ Church will host the annual Blessing of the Animals service to close the summer season. But the year’s events at the old church won’t be over: on Sunday, Dec. 16, it will host a candlelight carol sing. “We will all have to dress warmly,” Fowler said. “But if we get a big crowd, we will heat the place up with the warmth from our hearts.” Every first Sunday of the month, June through September, will feature a com-

For your information: Old Christ Church, Laurel, will be open Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as part of the Laurel garden tour. Garden tour tickets may be purchased at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church. They cost $8 in advance, $10 the day of festival. Old Christ Church will also host a benefit concert Sunday, 3 p.m., featuring singers from the area. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted. Old Christ Church will start its regular Sunday-morning services May 27. Services will be held at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday through Oct. 7. For more information, call St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 875-3644. munion service with Nelson delivering the sermon. A lay team will lead the simple prayer services on the other Sundays. Nelson said that she enjoys delivering her sermon in the historic church. “I love old buildings,” she said. “This church kind of transports me back in time. Being there, it’s almost like I’m back in the 1700s. And having the modern Eucharist service in a very antique building is a wonderful spiritual blend. I love making that connection, bringing the new into the old.” Fowler said that knowledge about the past, about how people lived and worshiped, can help us make good decisions for the future. And the people of the future are depending on us to preserve history, he added. “Old Christ Church does not belong to us,” he said. “We are only its custodians. We are preserving it for the future.”

Mike Hall spreads word supporting healthy lifestyles By Tony E. Windsor Though some may think that local powerhouse athlete Mike Hall has retired from the speaking circuit; this is far from reality. Hall, a Sussex County native who resides in Bridgeville, continues to beat the streets to deliver a healthy life style message wherever he is welcomed. At 50 and now retired from the professional weight lifting arena, Hall works as Director of Health and Wellness and Fitness Trainer Specialist at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, Md. But, he is as committed to his antidrug, alcohol and steroid mission as he ever was. For over 30 years he has delivered his message to schools, universities, churches, prisons, youth detention centers, public and private events and for the last decade, Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware youth sites throughout the state. It was on the power lifting mat that Mike Hall built a name that has stood the test of time and created a legacy that lists him in the "American Drug-Free Power lifting Association" record books as the undisputed "World's Strongest Drug-Free Man." Traveling throughout the world to compete in power lifting events in such places as Paris, France, Amsterdam, Sweden and Russia, Hall became the first drug-free athlete to lift totals that broke world records starting at 2,000 pounds and reaching his top lift total of 2,300 pounds. Mike has been featured in "Sports Illustrated for Kids," "Guidepost," "Faith 'n Stuff: the Magazine for Kids," "Guidepost for Teens," "USA Today," "Listen Magazine" and "Boy's Life Magazine." He was also recently featured in books including, "When Winning Cost too Much," written by authors John McCloskey and Julian Bailes, M.D. and "The 10 Greatest Power Lifters in History," a book published in Europe. Recently Mike was also recently featured in an issue of "Decision,"a newsletter developed by Students Against Drinking and Driving (SADD) that is distributed to over 10,000 Schools around the country. Hall's message has become even more significant in recent years as the issue of illicit steroids in sports and a national health focus on childhood obesity have become media headlines. Long before these health issues became such high profile newsmakers, Hall was in the classrooms of America warning young people of the dangers of anabolic steroids and the importance of being active and eating healthy. "The truth is, I have been out telling this story for over 30 years," Hall said. "I have always known what steroids can do to those people who use them. I have lost

dear friends to these drugs. I have also been painfully aware of how our young people have become less and less active and uninterested in eating healthy. That is why I have made this a priority in my life for so many years. It has been important to me to get the word out to kids and families about staying away from drugs of all kinds and learning to eat healthy and stay active. It has always been the children who have provided me with the fuel to stay involved in my mission." In March and April, Hall visited the Boys & Girls Club of Oak Orchard on several evenings as part of the special American Lung Association of Delaware program "Smoke Stompers," and helped the club members develop healthy eating habits and show them how to properly exercise. As the closing event for the "Smoke Stompers" workshops, Hall stood in the crowded club gymnasium and spoke to the youth and their families. Along with his verbal message, Hall also did something that has been his trademark in classrooms and gymnasiums across America; he did a power lifting demonstration. Oak Orchard Boys & Girls Club Director, Millie Charnick said Hall's weight lifting is a highlight for her young people. "The kids love it when Mike lifts those weights," she said. "The kids really love Mike Hall and they listen to what he has to say. Mike has been here for our community events for the past few years and when that music starts playing and he lifts the weights, everybody goes crazy. I believe Mike Hall makes a difference in the lives of everybody he meets. He has a real gift." Hall's "gifts" for the most part come from years of weight and health training, but most importantly as he points out, “having God as my personal coach.” Hall has no intentions of giving up on his mission to reach youth and families with a positive life styles message. The accolades that reflect Mike Hall’s work over the years tell a story of an ordinary young boy who grew up to be larger than life. He has been inducted into the Indian River High School Hall of Fame, the Delaware African-American Hall of Fame, the Weightlifting Hall of Fame and the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame. He recently received the Christian Award of Excellence, and was presented with a Tribute from the Delaware State Senate by Sen. Robert Venables for his over 30 years of commitment to Delaware young people. Sports Illustrated named Hall one of the top 50 athletes in Delaware. He is a five-time world and 10-time national power lifting champion and the first African-American to win a World Power lifting Championship. A "Natural Power"

poster designed as a drug prevention resource for high schools throughout the United States featured Mike Hall and reached over 11 million students. Though the list of honors speaks loudly to Mike Hall's dedication toward youth and families, nothing speaks more poignant than his own words. "All I have ever wanted is to help people become all they can be," he said. "I just want to let the children know they can be anything they

want to be. They can dream big and make their dreams become reality. It is all about caring about one another and reaching out. Everybody can be a positive influence on someone else. We just have to work together and simply keep the faith." Mike Hall is married to the former Toni Richards and they have three children: Brianna, Brittany and Retina.

supportive—I think it helped him a lot.” King expects her brother to attend the relay again this year. Mary Catherine Hopkins, Bethel, is the long-time chairwoman of the relay. While both her father and father-in-law died of cancer, she said that she is looking toward the future when she works to raise money for the American Cancer Society. “I do not want my grandchildren to have to worry about getting cancer,” she said. “They have too much to offer the world.” The fund-raising goal of this year’s relay is $163,000. Hopkins said that contributors, many of them corporations, have already donated more than $86,000. The relay’s outdoor track will be set up in the Mears Campus parking lot. A stage will be set up along the walkway that connects the two buildings at the Mears Campus. Volunteers will be able to set up camp in the parking lot or on the lawn. There will also be two large tents set up, one to accommodate the silent auction and the other for survivors of cancer. At

the survivors’ reception Thursday, May 17, each survivor will be given a luminary, a small brown bag and a candle, to decorate for the relay’s luminary ceremony. “The luminary ceremony gives folks a chance to remember…and honor those who have been affected by cancer,” Hopkins said. “It’s also a solemn time to remember those who didn’t make it.” The survivors will also get parking passes, enabling them to park in the Mears Campus lot. Additional parking will be available at the Seaford Post Office and at Trinity Transport. Volunteers with the Seaford Kiwanis Club will be on hand to direct people to parking. For your information:

The Western Sussex Relay for Life will be the evening of May 18 and the morning of May 19 at the Nanticoke Health Services’ Mears Campus, Bridgeville Highway, Seaford.

Organizer Harry Brake said that about 200 people attended Saturday’s Relay for Life Flea Market at Seaford High School. With that event and a rain-shortened St. Patrick’s Day festival, the high school has raised about $8,000 to benefit the Western Sussex Relay for Life. Students will participate in the May 18 relay, Brake said. The high school is also sponsoring a 5K run on June 2, starting at the Ross Plantation. Brake said that despite the slight turnout, “the event was a success from an educational standpoint. Many people are getting involved with the Relay for Life, which has been the ultimate goal.” And many of those people, he added, are students. “I had so many students helping with face painting, supervising the set up of bands, helping with the pig barbecue, running the flea market, setting up tables, running concessions, it was great,” he said. “The Seaford community has much to be proud of in its youth,” Brake added. “I see this speaking volumes about the challenge to adults to provide opportunities for students to apply their talents for the public good.”

Kent and Sussex County youth philanthropy boards present grants for youth programs "How many high school seniors can say 'I have collectively donated $10,000 to charities in my area,'" observed Alonna Berry, a senior at Polytech High School, about her two-year term as a member of the Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB) for Kent County. Calling the experience "amazing," she added, "The realization that there are problems right here in Delaware that I can fix - that is priceless!" Alonna is one of 30 high school students who served on the Youth Philanthropy Boards for Kent and Sussex Counties this year and recently presented a total of $10,000 in grants ($5,000 from each YPB) to six organizations that serve youth. The awarding of grants was the culminating activity for YPB members who met throughout the school year to discuss community needs and carry out all phases of the grantmaking process. The Youth Philanthropy Board program is sponsored by the Delaware Community Foundation for students in all three Delaware counties. Coverdale Crossroads Community Council will use its $4,000 grant to fund a joint after school program with First State Community Action Agency. This character building program addresses positive youth decision making, civic involvement, conflict resolution and such life choices as parenthood and career.

The $1,000 grant awarded to Western Sussex Boys and Girls Club (Seaford) will be used for a program for teens and preteens aimed at improving each student's awareness and understanding of sexuality issues; alcohol, drug and tobacco issues; and the resources available to them through the local, state and national governments. For John Blakeney, a senior at Seaford Senior High senior, participation in the Youth Philanthropy Board "provided me with valuable insight into the inner workings of grantmaking. By reviewing and discussing grant applications, I have gained an understanding of the needs of my community and the challenges associated with distributing resources in the most effective and beneficial manner. Most importantly, I have seen how philanthropy is a rewarding experience for the people involved at every stage of the process." The two Southern Delaware Youth Philanthropy Boards were funded by charitable funds at the DCF: The Thank You Fund, whose donors are Wayne and Betsy Holden of Dover; and the Janosik Family Charitable Foundation Fund, which was started by Johnny and Mary Louise Janosik of Laurel. The Janosiks' daughters, Lori Morrison

and Linda Christophel, represented their parents at the awards program in Seaford. Also attending were Linda Chick, Judy Warrington and Jackie Wilson, members of the YPB Advisory Council, Hugh D. Leahy Jr., DCF Senior Vice President for Southern Delaware, and Melissa Moffett, DCF Administrative/Development Assistant. In addition, Fred C. Sears II, President and CEO of the DCF, attended the Kent

County program. The Delaware Community Foundation is a nonprofit, community organization that manages charitable funds and awards grants to the community. Additional information about the Youth Philanthropy Board program and DCF is available by contacting Beth Bouchelle, Director of Grants Administration, at 302504-5239 or or by visiting

Members of the Youth Philanthropy Board for Sussex County include: Bryan Daudt (Delmarva Christian HS), Karen Ramirez (Seaford Sr. HS), Austin Butler (Woodbridge HS), John Blakeney (Seaford Sr. HS), Megan Wilkinson (Delmar HS), Marshall Vernon, (Delmar HS), Marissa Hinsch (Cape Henlopen HS), Mason Newark (Sussex Tech HS) and Karalyn Roach (Indian River HS)

Click it or Ticket campaign to reward drivers This year, OHS officials have added a new twist to the annual "Click it or Ticket" campaign, which tries to save lives by increasing the number of Delawareans who regularly buckle up. OHS has partnered with Dover International Speedway and TEAM (Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management), a national non-profit coalition, to grant five safety conscious race fans a pair of tickets to the June 3 NASCAR Nextel Cup race at the Speedway. During the Click It or Ticket enforcement period (May 13 28) when drivers pass through a traffic safety checkpoint, officers will provide any person age 16 or older in the vehicle who is buckled up, with a slip of paper that takes them to TEAM's website. From there, they will have the chance to win one of five (5) pairs of tickets to the June 3rd race. However, for any person not buckled up, the driver will still receive the ticket for a violation of the seat belt law. The 2007 Click It or Ticket campaign, which began May 13, is a high visibility enforcement and public awareness campaign run by the Office of Highway Safety officials and Delaware law enforcement officers. The campaign, which runs through June 2, tries to save lives by increasing the number of

Delawareans who regularly buckle up. The campaign consists of daily statewide enforcement with traffic safety checkpoints and roving patrols through May 28. Delaware's law requires drivers and passengers, including those in the back seat, to wear a seat belt. An officer can pull over a driver if he sees any person not wearing one. Officers will be issuing citations for seat belt violations as part of zero tolerance policy. The ticket, which goes to the driver no matter who is unbuckled in the vehicle, is a $25 fine plus court administrative fees. State, local and military police agencies are participating in this year's initiative. Nationwide enforcement begins May 21. Click It or Ticket has been a success in the last several years in raising seat belt use in Delaware from 67% in 2001 to an all time high of 86% in 2006, and is even higher than the national seat belt use rate of 81%. OHS officials say this is something not everyone is aware of. "We want people to realize that the majority of people in Delaware are law abiding citizens and do wear their seat belts. So during this year's Click It or Ticket campaign, we've come up with a way to reward this responsible behavior. Think of it as "Click It FOR Tickets," says Tri-

Deer harvest ranks second in all-time highest numbers During the 2006-2007 deer season, Delaware hunters met with great success, bagging 14,401 deer, the second highest number in state history. The total harvest was 268 deer short of tying the all-time harvest record of 14,669 set during the 2004-2005 season. "In many portions of the state, the Division's goal is to reduce the deer population. As a result, seasons and bag limits are set up to encourage the harvest of antlerless deer, specifically females," said Joe Rogerson, game mammal biologist with the Division of Fish and Wildlife. Continuing a five-year trend, more than 50 percent of the overall harvest was comprised of female deer (56.7 percent), while 74.4 percent of the overall harvest was antlerless. "Delaware hunters should be applauded for their willingness to harvest antlerless deer, as this is the key to population control," Rogerson added. The November shotgun season again was the most bountiful season for Delaware deer hunters. During the eight-day season,

6,037 of the 14,401 total were harvested. "Considering the entire deer season is five months (September to January) it is remarkable how many deer are harvested in such a short time period," Rogerson said. This also marked the second year of the recently implemented January handgun season. A similar number of deer were harvested in both seasons: 114 in 2005-2006 and 135 in 2006-2007. Rogerson will give a presentation regarding the harvest at the Wildlife Advisory Council Meeting to be held at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 26 in the auditorium of DNREC's Richardson and Robbins Building in Dover. Topics for discussion will include the Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Response Plan the Division recently completed, as well as the outline for developing the State’s Deer Management Plan. For more information on the deer harvest or other deer issues, contact Joe Rogerson, fish and wildlife game mammal biologist, at 302-653-2883.

cia Roberts, director of the Delaware Office of Highway Safety. Additional activities at the track will allow race fans to win tickets to the September race by signing a buckle up pledge, and give them the opportunity to tape

a Buckle Up PSA. This year's campaign also includes a focus on increasing teen seat belt use as teens have some of the lowest belt use rates in fatal crashes of any age group and expanded night time seat belt enforcement - seat belt use drops

from 86% in the daytime to around 60% at night, according to crash data. Participating Sussex County agencies include the following police departments - Blades, Bridgeville, Georgetown, Greenwood, Laurel, and Seaford.

Survey says: If you don’t like strawberries, you’re weird Respondents to a recent national survey described one particular group of people as “weird, boring, stuffy picky, fussy eaters who avoid healthy foods.” In contrast, another group was thought of as “health conscious, fun loving, intelligent and happy.” The former labels were bestowed upon non-strawberry lovers, the latter to those who adore this wonderful fruit. After reading the survey, if I didn’t love strawberries as much as I do, I wouldn’t admit it. The strawberry is a member of the rose family and technically not a true berry because its seeds are not on the inside. How it got its name is open to argument. Some say that in the 19th century, English children strung them on straws and sold them. Others contend that the name came from the practice of placing straw around the growing plants. Still others claim that while growing, they look as though they’ve been strewn among their leaves and so were called “strewberries” and later, strawberries. Whatever the disagreement on name origin, there is no confusion about the health qualities of strawberries. Eight medium ones

They’ve even been touted for sunburn relief — blend into a juice combined with honey and rub the mixture into the skin; rinse off with warm water and lemon juice.

Arts & Entertainment Shallop to visit Nanticoke Marine Park A replica of the John Smith shallop will visit the Nanticoke River Marine Park in Blades on May 30 for a commemoration of Smith’s first contact with Native Americans in what is now Delaware. The shallop will be on display in the marina basin near the Nanticoke River Yacht Club. In addition to educational displays, curators and re-enactors from Sultana Projects, Inc. – the group from Chestertown, Md., that built the shallop replica and is retracing the 1608 voyage of the Chesapeake Bay — will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to answer questions. Shallop Captain Ian Bystrom recently visited the marina in Blades to acclimate himself with the location prior to starting his historic re-enactment journey in May. The Seaford Chamber will be assisting with the John Smith shallop’s visit. This is sure to be a historic and fascinating event in our city’s history as we become part of a National Historic Trail. If you’d like more information visit or Little is known about the small open boat or “shallop” that John Smith used to make his exploration of the Chesapeake in 1608. Most likely, the vessel was built in England and transported to America in the hold of the Susan Constant, the flagship of

the Jamestown fleet. Measuring about 30 feet in length, the shallop was too large to travel to America in its final form and thus had to be transported in sections which were reassembled upon arrival in Virginia. The 2007 voyage is employing a fullscale reproduction of Smith’s shallop, built at the Sultana Shipyard in Chestertown, Md. Constructed using period materials and techniques, this new shallop is home to a crew of 12 modern adventures as they attempt to retrace Smith’s expedition. Research was funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society Expeditions Council. The John Smith shallop replica will be joined by a major, traveling educational exhibit at the Nanticoke River Marine Park in Blades, on May 30, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Partners and sponsors for the event include the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Blades, the City of Seaford, BEDCO, Nanticoke River Yacht club, CADzign LLC Home Design, MR Marketing, Sussex County Council, Tower Signs, Peninsula Oil Company, Soroptimist of Seaford, Nanticoke Rotary, i.g.

Police Journal Robbery at Ram Deli in Laurel On May 12 at 3:50 p.m. the Laurel Police responded to an armed robbery at the Ram Deli on North Central Ave. The victims advised that a white male entered the package store and purchased a beer. From there, he entered the deli side, which is located in the same building. At that point, the white male loitered in the store for 10 minutes until all the customers were gone at which point he went behind the counter holding a knife. The suspect ordered the cook onto the ground and forced the clerk to open the cash register. He removed an undisclosed amount of money and fled. As the suspect was fleeing from the store, a witness began chasing him. During the chase, the suspect threw his beer at the witness hitting him in the back. The witnesses continued to chase the suspect on foot until he got into a burgundy or red SUV type vehicle bearing New York registration. The suspect is described as a white male, 5'08, 165lbs. He was wearing a white hat worn backwards, a gray pull over hoody, white shorts, and running shoes. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Laurel Police Department at 875-2244 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or cell phone callers can call *TIPS.

OHS announces increased enforcement on traffic violators State Highway Safety officials along with state, county, and municipal law enforcement officials are announcing that for the second year in a row they are "turning up the HEAT" on traffic violators in Delaware" this summer. The high visibility traffic safety initiative aimed at reducing traffic deaths and injuries in the state is called the "120 Days of Summer HEAT" (Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic). The umbrella traffic initiative is intended to unify Delaware's three primary safety campaigns conducted during the summer months. The campaigns include Click It or Ticket, Checkpoint Strikeforce, and the Stop Aggressive Driving campaign. "As we head into summer, the roads will be crowded with both residents and out of state visitors. Given the high number of traffic deaths we experienced in the first three months of this year, we need the public to understand that we're taking a zero tolerance approach to traffic violations with the end goal of saving lives," said Tricia Roberts, director of the Delaware Office of Highway Safety. During the 2006 "120 Days of Summer HEAT" initiative, which ran from early May through Labor Day weekend, officers from law enforcement agencies statewide made 225 DUI arrests, 983 aggressive driving arrests, and issued 2,930 seat belt citations.

I am telling you all this for just one reason. We have all heard people say, "I would rather be by myself,” “I wish I was on an island alone,” and more along the same line. But I truly believe that sharing our stories, admitting our faults (well a few of them) and enjoying life with our fellow man is the road God intended for us. Whether it's your fishing buddies, the Red Hat Society or whatever, happiness in life can be gained by laughing together and enjoying this great life given each of us. Well, that's about it for my psychology lesson. No charge, and I promise to not do it again. I talked with Susan Whaley the other day. She is the manager of the concession stand at the Little League Park. She wanted to explain to me, and then for me to explain to you, why the concession stand was closed for a few days recently. First of all, a couple of times there was only one game at the park scheduled, once so the middle school band concert would not be affected and another time out of respect for the high school. But the big thing was that the concession stand was cleaned from top to bottom one day to prepare for its annual inspection by the state’s Division of Public Health. For this reason alone, I know where Susan is coming from as the state is much harder on private groups than it is






on restaurants and other food establishments. Gone are the days back in the 1970s when Ed Montague could put his arm around inspectors and talked them right out the door. We dreaded inspections back then and people dread them even more today. This is not to say it is not for a good reason — it just tells you how times have changed. Pastor Todd Crofford, wife Diane and family will soon have been with us here in Laurel 13 years. He is the pastor of Laurel Wesleyan Church and I might say a very active one. How well I remember stopping to talk with him about advertising in the Star in 1996. He made an immediate impression on me and I said to myself that he would be with us awhile and he has. I look for him and his family to continue to call Laurel their home for a long time. Congratulations to the Croffords. Going to be another busy weekend in Laurel as the sold out alumni banquet is Saturday night and the Gospel Café has another one of its famous (by now) music extravaganzas for all to enjoy. I truly wish I could be there as Don Murray, pastor at St. Paul’s Church, will be singing and playing his guitar in a "Duelin' Guitars" challenge from Bruce Willey. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy an evening in the park. Wow!

Seaford Star Sports Blue Jays blank Concord on a three-hitter by Gibson By Gene Bleile The Blue Jays needed to beat Concord. It was a must win for Head Coach Kenny Cummings team to stay in the hunt for a berth in the state tournament. With their backs to the wall, Derrik Gibson kept their playoff hopes alive going into the last week of the season, with a three hit shutout and 1-0 win over the Raiders last Saturday. Gibson went seven innings and faced only 27 batters in route to the win. He struck out 16 batters and walked only three, while throwing 75 strikes in a total of 115 pitches. He gave up a double in the first inning and singles in the fifth and sixth innings and struck out the side in the third. With one out in the top of the seventh, Gibson walked the Raiders shortstop Nick Hess, but then struck out the next two batters to end the game. “This was a big game for us,” Cummings said after the game. “We still need to win one out of our last two games next week to have a shot at the state tournament. Gibby did a great job today.” Gibson also knew the importance of this must win game. “My curve ball was working today and we needed to win,” he stressed. “I’m tired, but it was a big win for us.” All the offense for the entire game came off the bat of center fielder Zack Reynolds, who doubled home catcher Paul Widerman in the bottom of the first inning with the game’s only run. Gibson grounded out to start the inning, then Widerman singled and scored on the RBI double of Reynolds. Reynolds also had a single in the bottom of the

BETWEEN THE LINES By Gene Bleile, Seaford Sports

On Opening Day, Old Glory was proudly hailed, thanks to the Seaford Fire Department There is something magical about opening day. Players seem to throw harder, run faster and hit farther. Your heart beats a little faster too, when you step to the plate and try to get your first hit of the season. But the real magic starts when you step on the field for the first time prior to warm-ups. The infield dirt is smooth; the grass is green and mowed. The foul lines are unblemished and stretch to the foul pole. If only I could hit one out today, goes through every player’s mind. But there is no feeling that compares to seeing Old Glory flying in a slight breeze high atop a flag pole in center field. On May 5, I attended my 20th opening day as a player, coach, parent and first as a sports reporter. That magic returned again for me, when I stepped on the Senior League Field to photograph the open ceremonies and I saw Old Glory flying from a Seaford Volunteer Fire Department aerial truck in deep center field. As I stood near home plate, while Brittany Young faced the Seaford High ROTC Color Guard and proudly sang The National Anthem, it brought back memories of my first opening day in 1959 as a catcher for the Braves in the Nanticoke Little League. This flag has been proudly flown by the SVFD at the Little League opening days, starting with the May 2001 season. Special thanks go to all those past crews that raised the flag and this year Chief Doug Butler, Bill Hamstead, Byron Taylor, Ben

O’Bier and Calvin Yelverton did another great job. The 20 foot by 30 foot flag was purchased by the SVFD in 2001, when Steve Mayer was Chief of the Department. The driving force behind the purchase was Ronnie Marvel. In addition to opening days, it has been used at funerals, special City of Seaford events, the 100th Anniversary of the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department in 2001 and at St. John’s Church during Fire Prevention Week. So, thank you to the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department for another job well done. Opening day was a success for over 700 players and coaches, because you cared and took time to display Old Glory in a slight breeze in center field. Blue Jay Notebook: The Pierce Fire Truck Company in Wisconsin made Ladder Tower Truck 87-7. A special set of custom brackets was requested to be attached to the 105 foot aerial platform or bucket to display the flag. The flag never touches the ground, when re-bagged, but it is dry cleaned locally when needed. When we honor Old Glory with the National Anthem, please be reminded of the proper etiquette. Men in uniform, wearing hats, salute the flag. Spectators, players and coaches wearing hats, place them over their heart. If you don’t have a hat place your right hand over your heart. Be proud to “Live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”

For the Lady Jays, Kelly Kimpton fourth place first singles, Emily Nielson and Maumi Oshima third place in first doubles and Tish Thomas and Whitley Maddox third place in second doubles competition. After the finals both head coaches, Phil Burtelle (boys) and Bob Hastings (girls), had high praise for their players’ efforts. “The Fascelli brothers are the hardest working doubles team I have ever coached,” Burtelle said. “They are always working hard and practice and practice and practice. It paid off this weekend. I

was proud of my team’s effort and I feel they have learned a lot and saw what has to be done to step up to the next level of competition.” Hastings also echoed the same feeling for his players. “They gave all they could in the tournament; I was pleased with each player’s efforts. I feel we will be a stronger team next year. This experience will help my young players grow,” he stressed.

Seaford girls’ track team defeats Laurel and Smyrna By Gene Bleile The Lady Jays’ track team had an exceptional day last week in a tri-meet with Laurel and Smyrna at the Jays home stadium. Seaford won both meets with a score of 108 to 27 against the Bulldogs and 78 to 68 against the Eagles. In the 4x400 meter relay, Seaford Amber Burbage closed a 30 meter gap in the final lap of the relay to give the Jays the win over Smyrna. “Whoever came in first in that event won the meet,” Head Coach Rob Perciful said. “It was unbelievable how fast she closed the gap to win the race, she did a great job.” Against Laurel, the Jays dominated the events, winning 14 out of 18 for the afternoon. In the 4x800 meter relay, Seaford’s team of Lindsay James, Liz Perciful, Kristen Eckardt and Kelsey Hoch won first place with a time of 12:12.08. Anitra Hughes picked up a first in the 100 meter hurdles with a time of 18.8, which was also her personal best for the season. Laurel got on the board with a win by Twyla McCrea in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.7. Seaford’s relay team of Hughes, Michelle Thomas, Latasha Applewhite and Burbage won the 4x200 meter relay with a time of 1:56.8. The Lady Bulldogs’ Lauren Hitch won the 1600 meter run with a time of 6:35.7 and the 4x100 relay team of Tierra Hurst, Applewhite, Brittany Cornish and Thomas ran a 56.5 to grab another first place. Burbage took first place in the 400 meter run in 1:05.4 and Hughes followed suite with a win in the 300 meter hurdles

and personal best time of 52.7. Laurel’s last two wins of the day followed, when Hitch won the 800 meter run in a time of 2:56.1 and McCrea won the 200 meter dash in 28.5.

Delmar rallies for four runs in 11th to top Laurel, 7-5 By Mike McClure Like the baseball game which took place last week, the Laurel-Delmar softball game was a fierce battle. Laurel overcame Delmar leads in the seventh and tenth innings to keep the game going but the Bulldogs’ 11th inning fell short in the 7-5 Wildcat win. Delmar jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third inning as Erin Tingle doubled and scored on a single by Alison Bloodsworth. Laurel tied the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth when Alexis Oliphant hit a two-out single and Amanda Horsey doubled her in. Delmar regained the lead in the top of the sixth as Casey Shaver hit a leadoff single and moved up on a Melanie Twilley sac bunt. Brooke Boothe reached first on an error to put runners on the corners and Gabby Andrade put down a sac bunt and reached first safely on a fielder’s choice as Shaver scored the go ahead run. Laurel freshman pitcher Stephanie Wheatley, who came on for senior Caitlyn Dolby, worked a 1-2-3 seventh inning to set up the first Bulldog rally. In the bottom of the seventh, Wheatley hit a leadoff double, Alexis Oliphant’s ground out moved her to third, and Horsey hit a sac fly to knot the score at 22. Kelsey Oliphant walked and Miranda O’Neal singled but Brittney Brittingham was thrown out at first on a close play for final out of the inning, sending the game into extra innings.

Delmar left fielder Shannon Wilson made a nice running grab in the bottom of the inning as Mindi Wheatley retired the side.

Danielle Disharoon plated a run in the top of the 10th for the Wildcats. Laurel started the inning with Horsey on second base. She moved up on a bunt by Kelsey Oliphant and scored on a double by O’Neal. O’Neal moved to third on a wild pitch, but Wheatley and the Wildcats recorded a pair of outs to get out of the jam with the score tied at 3-3. Delmar erupted for four runs in the top of the eleventh when Brooke Boothe singled in Shaver. Boothe went to second on the throw home and advanced to third on an error before coming home on Gabby Andrade’s double. Andrade scored on a passed ball while Shannon Wilson reached first on an error and advanced to third base.

Jays keep playoff hopes alive; defeat Concord, 9-3 By Gene Bleile On senior recognition day, Kelsey Riggleman pitched a four-hitter against Concord High last Saturday at home to keep Seaford in the playoff hunt. Riggleman went the distance, striking out five Raiders and walking only three. In the field, the Jays committed three errors behind her, but the Seaford bats pounded out 12 hits to dominate play. “It was a big win for us,” Head Coach Dave Rogers said after the game. “It kept us in the running for a berth in the state tournament and guaranteed us a winning season.” The Lady Jays jumped out to a 2-0 run lead in the first inning on hits by Amanda

Swift and Kelsey Riggleman and a sacrifice fly by Danielle Haldeman. The Raiders scored a run in the top of the second inning to close the gap to 2-1, but Seaford held the lead with a run of their own in the bottom of the frame. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Seaford put the game on ice with three more runs on singles by Kari Bergh, Swift, and Riggleman and a Concord error. The Raiders scored two unearned runs in the top of the seventh, but Seaford won, 9-3, on the bats of Swift (4-for-4, double and two RBI), Riggleman (2-for-4, double and two RBI) and Bergh (3-for-3, three singles and two RBI). The Jays finish their season on the road against Milford and Padua.

Blue Jay golfers drop two matches heading into last week of season By Gene Bleile After coming off a 158-184 loss to Dover last Tuesday, the Blue Jay golf team hoped to rebound and head into the last week of the season with win over the tough Indian River golf team in an away match at Cripple Creek Golf Course last Thursday. The Jays, however, were defeated by the Indians in a close match 181-188 to put to rest any hope of a tie in the Southern Division of the Henlopen Conference for this season. “Today was a disappointing loss for us,” Head Coach Tim Lee said after the match in a phone interview. “We needed to beat IR to force a possible tie in the South going into the last week of the season. The team found out today how hard the challenge of Cripple Creek could be. One bright spot today was Ryan Budke’s score of 45.” Seaford was close all day in the match, but couldn’t come up with a low fourth score to put them over the top and erase the seven stroke difference. To make matters worse, Cory Ewing had an off day and shot a 48 against in the number one slot against the Indians’ Drew Gibbons who shot a 40. Matt Lank carded a 45 to defeat his opponent Matt Binsted, who shot a 48, and Ryan Budke brought in another 45 to defeat Paul Silrenin’s 47, but the next lowest score for Seaford was a 50 turned in by Taylor Paul. Mike Zakrewsky shot a 54 and Phillip Johnson rounded out the day with a 60. Heading into the North / South Conference Match on Friday, May 12, at Baywood, the Jays have two remaining home matches. They will close out the season with Lake Forest and Indian River.

Health Rx cards can save you By Anthony Policastro, M.D I take three prescription medicines on a regular basis. I also take three over the counter medications on a regular basis. I know the dose of all these medications. However, if I were involved in an accident or had something happened that impaired my ability to remember them, it would do me no good to know them. Therefore, I have them written on a card. It is in my wallet. It allows health care workers to find it. It allows me to give it to them so they can read it. This kind of thing prevents medication errors. It helps prevent errors of not getting the drug. Every drug is listed. That way one will not be forgotten. It prevents errors of the wrong dose. If the dose is written down, it serves to help check the correct dose that I tell them. It helps prevent drug interactions. Many drugs interact with each other. In order to avoid that, it is necessary for the prescriber to know exactly what drugs you already take. Another place to think about keeping the drug lists for all family members is on the refrigerator. You can list everyone’s medication. You can put it in a zip lock bag. You can hold it in place with a magnet.

A good idea is to record the chronic medical problems that you have. Ambulance personnel are trained to look in this location for the lists. You need to make sure they are clearly labeled with the name of the individual. A good idea is to also record the chronic medical problems that you have. You should have allergies recorded as well. You should list recent surgical procedures as well. In emergencies, the time that is saved can be very important. My medication card lists the fact that I react to wheat and exercise the way some people react to bee stings. Having that information could get me the injection that I need much more quickly.

Hospitals announce tobacco-free decision By Ann Wilmer Hospital officials at Nanticoke Health Services and two other local medical centers are taking steps to improve your health by making all three campuses tobacco-free starting July 1. Hospital officials acknowledge that the transition will be difficult for smokers but doctors, volunteers and many visitors to the hospital have greeted the decision enthusiastically. Most people recognize that smoking is an unhealthy life choice and many who smoke, want to quit. “We hope to persuade not just our employees but also patients and their families [not to smoke],” said Doug Connell, president and CEO of Nanticoke Health Services. Already they are helping in-patients by using nicotine patches to curb the urge to light up. Nanticoke’s in-patient program has been in effect for a while through the respiratory department. Attending physicians can write an order for nicotine replacement patches for their patients who smoke to help them stay away from tobacco while hospitalized. Annette Hall-Barnes, MSN, APRN-BC, director of occupational health, is directing the effort to help employees to kick the habit. “Tobacco use is the largest

cause of preventable death in the U.S.,” she said. Older Americans are among those who are disproportionately affected by tobaccorelated deaths because many of them started smoking as teenagers and may have smoked for 50 years or more before the overwhelming evidence of the dangers of smoking prompted them to quit. Secondhand smoke has done damage to many elderly individuals who never smoked but were exposed to it at work or at home. And older Americans are much more likely to die or suffer serious injury in tobacco-related fires. The Center for Social Gerontology, says that the primary victims of the disease and death caused by smoking and secondhand smoke in the U.S. are older adults. Over 94 percent of the annual tobacco-related deaths involve persons aged 50 and over, and 70 percent involve persons aged 65 and over. But most state tobacco-settlement funding initiatives have been targeted a keeping young people from starting. The American Lung Association of Delaware has advocated raising the excise tax on tobacco products because studies show a direct correlation between the price of cigarettes and the number of Continued on page 52

youth who buy them. Increasing the price, by increasing the excise tax, can decrease use. But since we know that even heavy smokers see health benefits if they stop smoking, it makes sense to mount a broader effort to reduce the number of smokers with programs aimed directly at workplace populations. By making the ban include the entire campus, particularly at a hospital, the message reaches all age groups. Hospital officials from Peninsula Regional Medical Center and Beebe Medical Center who also unveiled plans to rid their campuses of tobacco at a press conference in Salisbury recently said that tobacco use is the cause of many illnesses that they treat but, as Tom Brown, public relations director at Nanticoke Health Systems said, “We don’t want your business.” “Based on national statistics, we know that most tobacco users want to quit and that work site policies can help them to accomplish this goal. If it were easy, everyone would quit. That’s why we wanted to put some things in place for those who want to stop smoking,” Hall-Barnes said. Since the tobacco settlement in 1999, state health officials, alarmed at cancer

Participants sought for breast cancer online support study The University of Delaware's School of Nursing is seeking participants for a 12-week study designed to learn about the possible health benefits of online cancer support for patients with breast cancer. Participants sought must be females of at least 21 years of age who have breast cancer, are receiving treatment for breast cancer, or have received treatment for breast cancer in the past 36 months. Participants also must have Internet access at home and be able to read and write English. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two types of online cancer support for 12 weeks during which they will take part in online discussions with other women who have breast cancer. The study is noncompensatory and voluntary, and participants can withdraw without any penalty during the 12-week study. For more information on the study, call (302) 831-8501.

rates in the First State, began a program to encourage smoke-free workplace initiatives to help the 35 percent of Delawareans who smoked to kick the habit. About one-quarter of state residents still smoke. Still, the reduction represents significant progress. Nanticoke Health Services are providing options to those who want to quit – either one-on-one counseling or group support programs. Nanticoke’s employee health insurance offers tobacco-cessation benefits. The campaign has been in the planning for some time. Smoking cessation classes – American Cancer Society’s (ASC) “Fresh Start” program involve four onehour sessions. Several members of the Nanticoke staff have completed the ACS training and will start offering the program to employees in June. “We would like to extend some of these programs to the community,” said Hall-Barnes. Both the Delaware and Maryland Quit Line programs offer one-on-one counseling to smokers who want to stop smoking. Telephone counselors with the Delaware Quit line are also ACS-trained. Some members of the community who don’t work for the hospital will also have to make adjustments to accommodate the new policy. Tina Reaser, composition manager at Morning Star Publications, which rents office space from Nanticoke Health Systems, is one of them. Reaser is one of the five out of 14 employees at the firm who smokes. Reaser started smoking when she was 12. “Mom told me it didn’t look ladylike,” she said. But her Mom smoked, so the admonition not to start was ineffective. “I thought she was the epitome of womanhood,” she said. “When I get stressed, I run out the door and grab a cigarette,” said Reaser.” She and her mother, who also works for Morning Star, go outside and walk to the end of the office complex. “I guess I’m going to cross the street now. I really would like to quit,” she admitted. Reaser also has a home-based business that teaches people weight management. “I’m trying to teach people how to get healthy, and here I am smoking,” she said. Like many smokers Reaser admits trying unsuccessfully to quit. That only adds to her stress “because I’ve tried to quit and cannot. Obviously, stopping smoking is a goal for my future but I’ve not set a date.” She talked to her doctor about it and he

has urged her to take one step at a time. He prescribed something to help her reduce her body’s response to stress. He told her that when she noticed reduced stress levels, they would talk about getting rid of her cigarettes. She has learned that nicotine is a common form of self-medication for people whose work (or life) is stressful. This is a factor that often defeats a smoker’s efforts to kick the habit. At her fast-paced job, she said she feels disorganized as she tries to juggle many different assignments. She joked, “I’m still not organized but now I don’t care,” revealing another coping method she employs: humor! In the next breath she claims she doesn’t know how long it’s been since she’s seen the top of her desk, something many people whose jobs involve multiple projects know all about. Restrictions on smoking at work are not new. Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Miner signed the most stringent statewide smoking ban in the country into effect November 27, 2002, which banned smoking in restaurants, bars and casinos as well as offices when legislators responded to the state’s tobacco-related cancer death rate, the third highest in the country. Smoking is also banned in all places of business in Maryland.

Other illnesses that are caused or exacerbated by tobacco use include emphysema and coronary heart disease. According to the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program, at the University of California at Santa Barbara, the effects of smoking on the cardiovascular system include an acute increase in blood pressure and decrease in oxygen delivery. Smoking is a strong risk factor in cardiovascular diseases that include arrhythmia, hypertension, myocardial infarction, stroke and ischemic heart disease. Both smokers as well as non-smokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk of cardiac disease.

Tips on quitting • Don’t try to go it alone. Tell your friends and ask for support. • Destroy all your cigarettes. • Substitute positive behaviors, such as nibbling on carrot or celery sticks or even chewing sugar-free gum when trying to quit smoking. • Avoid coffee, sugar and alcohol as these stimulate the desire to smoke. • Drink lots of water to flush the nicotine and other poisons out of your system. • When the urge strikes, do deepbreathing exercises to reduce stress.

Letters City needs aggressive leadership Having lived near the beaches and other locales in Sussex County after having moved from my native hometown of Seaford, I have gained the advantage of becoming more objective to the movements and progression of Seaford. People around the western side of the county are aware of the growth of Seaford and the growth and expansion of other areas as well. Times change. When the DuPont Company flourished and everyday life was bustling, no one seemed to be too concerned about the competition from surrounding towns and what impact it would have on the prosperity of Seafordians. The city towered over other smaller communities in geographic size and wealth and people felt invincible from outsider attacks on progress. Well, times do indeed change and growth and expansion are all around us. Companies from all over the peninsula that otherwise were unheard of months before are advertising on TV and in the papers. Businesses want to be patronized. Even hospitals advertise for business; who would have ever dreamed of that? Developers are swarming all over the county and elsewhere, competing for a piece of the action.

Now don’t misinterpret what my point is. Seaford is still the largest city in the county and there are facets of the business world that are present in Seaford that are not spreading to other western parts of the county; e.g. Lowe’s, five hotels, Wal-Mart, a hospital, and a TV station, albeit merely a translator facility. But it’s all about competition. It’s all about scouting the major corporations and enticing them to locate in Seaford. Here is one point I want to make clear. Leadership in the city and the personal enthusiasm and commitment to see the city grow and prosper is vital. Our city leaders must be vigorously aggressive and have the drive and determination to push for growth. Yes, I know, growth is occurring in Seaford, but when smaller towns that surround Seaford are growing at rapid rates one might stand back and wonder if there might be something else Seaford can do to be at the head of the pack. Admittedly, some people thrive on growth and want to see the city expand while others insist on keeping the status quo. Success for the future depends largely on what happens now. Rumors abound about what businesses are coming to Seaford. IHOP, Chick-Fil-A, Red Lobster, Home Depot, Popeyes, etc. Construction is vividly apparent and no

one seems to disperse the news in a comprehensive manner to keep the people informed. There is a plethora of activity all over Seaford, reminiscent of the early 1960s but every direction you turn your head you see the same thing. Granted, some actions may not warrant mentioning I guess but when one sees form taking place for another business and no signage one has to wonder what is coming next. There are three sites adjacent to US 13 in front of the Lowe’s building and only one has been reported to the public what it shall eventually become - Citizen’s Bank. Someone needs to make the people aware of what the other two sites intend to become. I may have employed a mish-mosh full of gibberish in the above paragraphs, but my point is that we need to have aggressive leadership, the desire for a large growth pattern and widespread dissemination of the growth. Neighboring towns are making huge inroads toward growth and expansion and if Seaford intends to be the unparalleled relative to the sister towns north and south of here we have to be bigger and stronger and louder. Make the public aware, no convince the public, that Seaford is the most desirable destination for not only businesses but also for a place to live. Don’t wait until it is too late. It’s a

race for superiority and smaller towns are gaining in momentum. Jim Marvel Laurel

This bill will go a long way toward improving the health of the Chesapeake and giving our farmers the assistance they need to be good stewards.” “This is an important bill that establishes an aggressive agenda for the upcoming Farm Bill debate,” Carper said. “We will use CHESSEA to ensure that more conservation dollars flow into

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) applauds legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate that would provide a historic level of new federal funding to Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts, and reduce tens of millions of pounds of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment pollution annually.

Education Top scholars throughout state recognized at dinner

SEAFORD SCHOOLS RECOGNIZED - Parents, students, board of education members, teachers and administrators prepare to board a school bus which carried them to the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, May 7, as Seaford School District’s Secondary School Advanced Placement Incentive Program was recognized as the district category winner in the 2007 Delaware State Chamber of Commerce Superstars in Education award ceremony.

Two SHS students are honored for volunteering Kate Baltz, who was honored for community service. Baltz has been a team captain for the Western Sussex Relay for Life since 2005. In 2006, her youth team won second place. This year she took a leadership role in developing a new fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society. Motivated by the memory of her late father, a former Seaford High School principal, Baltz planned Seaford’s first annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival. She recruited many local businesses and individuals to donate their time and resources. She designed an innovative advertising campaign that included contacting the media, school districts, city hall and vendors. Baltz invited performers from the Battle of the Bands to entertain and students from local high school organizations were encouraged to bring families and friends. Her perseverance, patience and energy brought about a greater awareness about cancer and brought the entire Seaford community together for this event. Baltz is also an active member of her school’s yearbook staff. Baltz was nominated by Harry Brake, English educator, writing center, Relay for Life and yearbook advisor at Seaford Senior High School. Robert Palmer Jr., who was recognized for his work in school. Palmer works with students to share his knowledge and love of the written word. He participated in the 2005 Author’s Aura at Frederick Douglass Elementary School to help younger students improve their

writing skills. He tutors fellow students and serves as the director of his high school’s writing center. In addition, he visits classrooms to address issues of plagiarism, documentation and proper citations and references. His tutoring has helped students who have struggled with the basic issues of grammar and writing strategies that will be rated through state testing. When not tutoring, Palmer creates goals and objectives for the center that address student needs. Additionally, he is involved with elementary students in the Evening Read with Peers. This year he became business manager of the yearbook. Rob exceeds the basic requirements for yearbook sales and promotion, spending many hours pursuing advertisements to improve the quality of the yearbook. Palmer was also nominated by Harry Brake.

Epworth has Discovery program

Lindsay Kay Dukes

Dukes graduates from Wesley Lindsay Kay Dukes received a bachelor of science degree in business management and marketing from Wesley College in Dover on May 5. Dukes, a 2003 graduate of Epworth Christian School, is the daughter of Donna Dukes of Salisbury, Md., and Eddie Dukes of Laurel. She is also the granddaughter of Ginger Webster and the late Dick Webster of Salisbury and Bob and Rada Mae Dukes of Laurel. She plans to pursue a career in marketing.

At Epworth Christian School, Laurel, students are offered differentiated learning that individualizes their educational instruction. One of the programs used to do this is called Discovery. The National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) endorses this educational therapy program. NILD is a Christian organization dedicated to meeting the needs of students with learning difficulties. ECS is a member of NILD and began using its program in 1997. The Discovery Program differs from tutoring in that cognitive and perceptual weaknesses are strengthened to support independent learning. Students in the Discovery Program generally receive two 80-minute sessions of intensive one-on-one therapy per week. The end goal is to help students develop independence and responsibility in the classroom and life. For details on Epworth Christian School and any of its other programs, contact the school office at 875-4488.

“A horn was stuck, blaring for several minutes until it was eventually cut off. “It was a harsh reminder of what had happened,” he said. “Storm said it looked like a car had been towing a small storage trailer behind it, when the trailer came off, possibly from debris in the road. “Everybody just tried to dodge it,” said Storm. “Storm said he saw many cars in the eastbound lane that clearly saw the accident make a U-turn on the bridge and travel back over to Sandy Point. “I’m just disappointed in human nature,” said Storm. “The accident created a huge snarl for anyone crossing over the Bay Bridge in either direction. “Westbound traffic on the bridge was shut down for hours because of the accident. On the Eastern Shore, westbound traffic on U.S. Route 50 was backed up to the Route 50/301 split in Queenstown by 5:15 p.m. However, drivers soon got word of the long wait ahead of them and either turned around or found alternate routes.” Jack Shaum also contributed to this report.

Be Healthy Delaware Day The Delaware Center for Health Promotion (DCHP), a new initiative sponsored by the Office of Lt. Governor John C. Carney, Jr. and the University of Delaware, is encouraging Delawareans to participate in “Be Healthy Delaware Day” on May 23. Adult residents are encouraged to adopt one healthy lifestyle behavior that they normally don't practice, and commit to “try it” for the day. Registrants select 1 of the following health-promoting behaviors: • Engage in at least 30 total minutes of physical activity. • Eat smaller portions, or split an oversized restaurant meal with someone. • Consume more fruits and vegetables. • If you smoke, refrain from smoking for the day. • Call and schedule a preventive health screening for yourself. Random prizes will be awarded, including an annual family membership to the YMCA of Delaware. To register for this free program, go to, download the registration form, complete it, and return it to the Delaware Center for Health Promotion prior to May 21. “We know that lifestyle choices are directly related to health status.

Delaware has made great strides when it comes to reducing the number of smokers in the state, however, obesity is on the rise and more than half of Delawareans don't get the recommended amount of physical activity or the suggested amount of fruits and vegetables in their diet,” states Lt. Gov. John C. Carney, Jr. According to DCHP's director, Marianne Carter, “We recognize that changing behaviors is difficult, and wanted to provide Delawareans with a fun way to try a healthy habit. The hope is that they will realize that it's not that difficult, and continue the behavior for more than one day.” Prize winners will be announced on May 23, in conjunction with the presentation of awards from the Governor's Council on Lifestyle and Fitness. An individual and a program will be selected based on their innovation in promoting physical activity and healthy nutrition. A ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. in Rodney Square, Wilmington. Mayor James Baker and Lt. Gov. Carney will be in attendance. “Be Healthy Delaware Day” is cosponsored by the Healthy Delaware Foundation. For further information, e-mail, or call (302) 8311998.

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.
