Rainy ceremony caps stormy 2010 election cycle Teressa Smith didn’t mind that it was raining. She and her friend, Joe Willene, both of whom live in Georgetown, sat on a bench on The Circle in Georgetown last Thursday and waited for the annual Return Day parade to get under way. “I love the bands, and it’s always exciting to see the politicians,” she said. “And this year, I’m getting my roast ox sandwich,” a Return Day tradition. “Last time, the wait was so long that I gave up. This year, I’m sticking
it out. And I don’t care whether it rains or not. It’s only water.” Elwood Baker of Laurel was of a similar mind. He and his wife, Barbara, set their chairs up on The Circle and covered them with an umbrella before heading off in search of something to eat. “In 20 years, I haven’t missed a single Return Day,” he said. “I live in Sussex County. I don’t let the rain stop me.” Despite the dedication of Return Day fans, the crowd at the traditional celebration of unity following political
squabbling was down this year, perhaps because of the weather, on and off showers that, when on, were drenching, or perhaps because of the security that was a hold-over from 2008, when then Sen. and Vice President-Elect Joe Biden attended. While there were no metal detectors or rooftop sharpshooters as there had been when Biden was there, much of Georgetown was closed to traffic, meaning that people had to rely on shuttle buses to get to The Circle. In addition, the parade route was Continued to page 46

Operation helps soldiers
Operation We Care, started by the Eastern Shore HarleyDavidson Owners Group (HOG), has set a goal of 300 boxes to be delivered to service members serving in theaters of conflict. The boxes will be packed the Sunday after Veterans Day and delivered before Christmas. Last Veterans Day, the group placed and shipped more than 260 of the U.S. Postal Service boxes with products donated by residents of Delmarva’s three states. The group did another 226 boxes in May, after Armed Forces Day. The boxes are the equivalent of a warm hug from home, extended to those serving our country abroad. Each package contained at least one box of Girl Scout cookies, donated by the Chesapeake Bay Girl Scout council. Members of Troop 688 decorated all 226 boxes with handdrawn artwork and messages of support before they were packed. The top 10 items needed for the projected 200 boxes to be shipped include bars or bottles of body soap, small packs of baby wipes, pull-top cans of pasta, hot chocolate packets, cotton balls, playing cards, dental floss, deodorant (non aerosol), shampoo and tea bags. Zip-lock bags in the sandwich, quart and gallon size are also needed to separate items for shipping. The donation list is available online at www.easternshorehog. com, Minuteman Press in Salisbury and most drop-off points. Donations can be dropped off at Minuteman Press and Clear

Mountaire Farms to expand operations By Lynn R. Parks
The Mountaire Farms poultry processing plant near Millsboro is planning an expansion that will bring an additional 31 jobs to Sussex County. Announcement of the $34.5 million project to construct a rendering and resource-recovery facility came last Thursday, just one day after the state OK’d a permit required for the project by Delaware’s Coastal Zone Act. The permit, signed by the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control secretary Colin P. O’Mara, says that the expansion will mean an infusion of $5.6 million into the state’s economy. A ceremony to celebrate the announcement of the expansion was held at the poultry processing plant last Thursday morning. “It’s fitting that…just a few miles away from where people will, at Return Day, literally bury the hatchet and move past the political season, we’re together to talk about jobs,” Gov. Jack Markell said at the ceremony. “Mountaire is a critical part of the state’s economy and we are so glad to see their strong commitment to this community renewed.” With the new rendering and resourcerecovery facility, Mountaire will be able to convert poultry processing leftovers such as blood, feathers and entrails from its Millsboro plant as well as its Selbyville plant into meal and feed-grade fat for use in the production of pet food. The new facility, to be constructed on the current Mountaire campus east of
Millsboro, is expected to be open by December 2011. More than 300 workers are expected to be used during its construction. The Delaware Economic and Development Office is providing a $787,500 grant from its Delaware Strategic Fund for the project. “The state’s support of this expansion would continue our commitment to this important sector of our economy, while helping to create jobs and make improvement to the environment,” said DEDO director Alan Levin. “It is a solid investment in the future of our state.” “Support for the resource-recovery plant project is paramount in solidifying Mountaire’s total integration poultry business in Delaware,” said Mountaire Farms president Paul Downes. Under the provisions of the Coastal Zone Act permit, odors from the rendering facility will be abated through thermal oxidation. To offset expected air emissions from the new facility, Mountaire will replace two of its three oil-burning boilers at its main facility with burners that use natural gas. “This will reduce complex air emissions by approximately 71 tons per year,” the permit says. In addition, Mountaire will also upgrade and expand its existing wastewater treatment facility to reduce by 64 percent the nitrogen load in the waste that it discharges onto cropland. This will more than offset the additional nitrogen load that is generated by the rendering plant, the per-

USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Delaware State Conservationist Russell Morgan recently announced the ranking period cut-off date for producer applications for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) has been extended to Jan. 7, 2011. CSP is offered in all 50 states, District of Columbia and the Pacific and Caribbean areas through continuous sign-ups with announced cut-off dates for ranking periods. The program provides many conservation benefits including improvement of water and soil quality, wildlife habitat enhancement, and adoption of conservation activities that address the effects of climate change. All producers are encouraged to apply for CSP. The program, authorized in the 2008 Farm Bill, offers payments to producers who maintain a high level of conservation on their land and who agree to adopt higher levels of stewardship. Eligible lands include cropland, pastureland and nonindustrial forestland. A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help producers determine if CSP is suitable for their operation. It is available from local NRCS offices or online at http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/ programs/new_csp/csp.html. To apply for CSP, visit your local USDA Service Center.

SARA makes space station contact
Members of the Sussex Amateur Radio Association (SARA), one of the largest and most active amateur radio organizations on Delmarva, have made ham radio contact with the International Space Station. Thousands of hams worldwide are trying to achieve this coveted radio contact yet comparatively few actually make the connection. A combination of luck and skill have allowed 15 SARA members to talk via amateur radio directly to Mission Commander and fellow ham Colonel Doug
Wheelock, KF5BOX. The timing of a call and knowledge of the track are essential as the orbiter is 214 miles above the Earth and traveling at more than 17,000 miles per hour making it within radio range of Delmarva only a scant few minutes each day. Terry Hastings, W3TRY, of Milford, was the first SARA member to speak to the space station. “It was absolutely great to hear Col. Wheelock return my call,” he said. “I felt the enthusiasm of a child again.”
Longneck residents and SARA members Jerry Martin, KB3NZJ, and his wife Paula KB3TCH, have also enjoyed the experience. “Jerry turned on his ham radio and asked me to call and I got through on my first try!” said Paula. Later Jerry made his contact and has since helped others with orbital and prime time data. To learn more about this experience, joining SARA, or getting your ham radio license, contact Joe Stormer at W3TL@ arrl.net or visit www.sussexamateurradio. com.

Washington works to help members of armed forces By James Diehl Georgetown-area resident Tina Washington will never forget the day more than nine years ago when she was sitting in a classroom at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pa. People were running in and out of the room; everyone knew something out of the ordinary was going on, they just weren’t sure what it was. When she learned exactly what was happening, she took a deep breath, thought of her friends and family and realized how lucky she was. The date was Sept. 11, 2001 – just a month earlier, she was working at the Pentagon and could easily have been in the section of the building where terrorists crashed an airliner into the hub of the American military earlier that morning. “I realized two things right away. First, if I had been at the Pentagon, I wouldn’t have been too far away from where the plane actually hit,” remembers Washington, who spent most of her career with the Defense Department, but retired from the Department of Homeland Security in 2006. “I also realized that there were a lot of people in that area of the building who I knew. I lost some ladies that day who I had close relationships with.” The attacks were hard to get over; they affected everyone in her class at the War College and most of the people she knew. “It was eerie because just a month before the attack, we were all working together,” she remembers. “That really just put my life more into perspective.” Washington always knew that when the time came for her to retire and she had a little more free time on her hands, that she would like to volunteer with an organization that aided members of the military, both present and past. Today, she spends much of her free time working with the ladies auxiliary of the Oak Orchard-Riverdale American Legion near Millsboro. Currently serving as the organization’s vice president and community service chairperson, one of her main goals in life these days is to help the members of our nation’s military. Sometimes, that involves working closely with veterans of the United States armed forces. Other times, it involves community awareness and working with area children.
If you know of someone who has dedicated his or her life to service to others, suggest their names for this series. Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant Richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com It all revolves around helping members of the armed forces, men and women she once worked so closely with. “One of the things we do with the auxiliary is to go into the schools with our ‘veterans in the classroom’ program, which has been very well received in our local school districts,” says Washington. “We show the kids how to do pocket flags and we’ll also take the honor guard with us. They’ll do the folding of the flags and tell the children what each fold in the flag means. The young people are very enthusiastic about this.” After Washington finished the yearlong program at the War College, she returned to her job at the Pentagon, where her interest in helping veterans and veterans’ organizations grew. She had the opportunity to see first hand what the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were really all about – the real life examples of the conflicts were hard to ignore. “The generals started bringing in these kids who were coming back from Iraq; they would bring them to the executive dining room once a week and sit and have dinner with them,” Washington remembers. “These were just kids, most of them 18 to 20-years-old who were coming back with no legs or in wheelchairs. But they were so grateful that people at the Pentagon would sit and have a conversation with them.” Washington thinks back on those moments today when she’s organizing special events, coordinating press coverage or simply spending time with veterans of the United States military. Some are younger, some are veterans of Vietnam or World War II – all laid their lives on the line for our country. It’s Washington’s goal to garner them some much-deserved recognition, whether they
Georgetown-area resident Tina Washington has been volunteering with American Legion Post 28 for more than four years, currently serving as the vice president and community service chairperson for the ladies auxiliary.

desire it or not. In 2008, one of these humble warriors touched Washington’s life in a special way. She will never forget the way World War II veteran Otis Handy reacted to his special day. “I arranged for him to come to our post for lunch the day the national commander was here,” recalls Washington. “Everybody was just so in awe of him and he is such a humble man; I was really amazed at the treatment he got here. He couldn’t understand, though, why people were making such a big fuss over him. But he kind of took it all in and appreciated it.” Be it programs in the schools, spending time at Post 28 or merely doing her part to help the ladies auxiliary be as successful as it can possibly be, Washington is doing her part to help veterans and veterans’ causes throughout the area. She even goes out of her way to do what many don’t take the time to do – say a simple “thank you” to members of our
military whenever she can. “If I’m in the airport and I see people in military uniforms, I’ll walk up to them and thank them for their service,” says Washington, with a big smile creeping onto her face. “It’s not just saying that, but it’s their reaction to me that always makes me feel good. They are almost incredulous because most people don’t take the time to do that. But I do.” Washington has been volunteering on a regular basis for American Legion Post 28, the third largest American Legion in the world by membership, since 2006. Her father was a military man and her son, Bernard Hynson, currently serves in the United States Army. She has a special connection to America’s military, a connection she honors and treasures every single day. “As long as I’m doing what I need to do and I know it’s helping our veterans, then I’m happy,” she says matter-of-factly. “That’s really what life is all about.”

Police Journal Cyclist dies from crash
Delaware State Police responded to a crash involving a bicyclist and passenger van on Nov. 8 at 5:47 p.m. on Wilson Farm Road, approximately half a mile north of SR 18, south of Bridgeville. The crash occurred as a 2007 Dodge Caravan driven by Elna M. Watt, 57 and the 54-year-old victim, both of Seaford, were traveling southbound on Wilson Farm Road toward SR 18 Cannon Road, Bridgeville. The victim, a bicyclist, was traveling on the right side of Wilson Farm Road which has unimproved shoulders. Watt was driving southbound on Wilson Farm Road approaching the victim from the rear. For an unknown reason, the victim turned left into the path of the Dodge Caravan and was struck. The victim was initially taken to Nanticoke Hospital where he was stabilized but was then flown to Christiana Hospital where he died on Nov. 9 from injuries sustained in the crash. Delaware State Police has positively identified the victim and are attempting to notify next of kin, however, it is possible that the victim is homeless. The last known address for the victim is Concord Road, Seaford. Anyone who may have known a 54-year-old male who traveled via a bicycle in the area of Wilson Farm Road on a regular basis is asked to contact Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit at Troop 7 at 644-5020, ext. 112.
Leffew receives prison sentence
Gary Leffew Jr., 22, a senior airman stationed at Dover Air Force Base, was sentenced recently by U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson to five years in prison for possession of child pornography, in violation of federal law. Leffew was also sentenced to five years of supervised release, which will begin following his prison term. He will also be required to register as a sex offender in any jurisdiction in which he lives, works or attends school.

According to statements made at the sentencing hearing and documents filed in court, in March 2009, Leffew contacted an undercover detective from Kirksville, Mo., who was posing as a child sex offender in a chat room. Leffew then invited the undercover detective to join a private computer network used to trade images of child pornography. Leffew engaged in online conversations with the detective and others as they downloaded images of child pornography that Leffew posted on the network. Leffew’s attorney argued for a 40-month sentence, noting that Leffew was found in possession of only 38 images and 16 videos of child pornography and that his conduct was largely limited to viewing the images. United States District Judge Sue L. Robinson rejected that request, noting that each image depicts a real child being abused and that “there is nothing casual or innocent about the viewing of child pornography.” This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Delaware State Police High Tech Crimes Unit. This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Edward J. McAndrew.
Man killed in pedestrian crash
Delaware State Police is investigating a fatal crash involving a pedestrian that occurred early Sunday morning, Nov. 7., sometime between 12:30 and 9 a.m. The victim, Joshua D. Weiss, 31, of Dover, was found along the roadway on Willow Grove Road west of Berrytown Road, approximately three miles west of Camden. Police have learned that Weiss was at a party on Saturday into Sunday morning with his wife and left suddenly. Weiss was speaking on the cellular phone with his wife sometime after midnight. Weiss’ wife and others attempted to locate him unsuccessfully. At 9 a.m. Police received a 911 call from a passing motorist who observed Weiss’ body in a ditch off the north side
of Willow Grove Road. Police responded to the crash site and discovered several articles of clothing on the shoulder of the roadway belonging to Weiss. Police were able to collect several vehicle parts, however, the exact identification of these parts is pending. Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to call investigators at 302-697-4454, ext. 216 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
Man assaults woman in Bridgeville
On Saturday, Nov. 6, Delaware State Police investigated a domestic assault which occurred in the parking lot of the Bridgeville Business Center off Seashore Highway and at a campsite off of Chaplin’s Road, Bridgeville. Police learned that the assault began around 2:48 p.m. when the 24-year-old victim of Pasadena, Md., her ex-boyfriend, William J. Brady Jr., 23, of Huntingtown, Md., and a mutual friend from Media, Pa. went to purchase alcohol. Allegedly, the victim told the mutual friend that she loved him for taking them to the liquor store which angered her exboyfriend, Brady. When the friend went inside the liquor store, Brady grabbed the victim by the neck as she sat in the rear of the truck, squeezing her neck making it difficult to breathe. Brady also continued to strike the victim about the face and torso before eventually biting her on the cheek. By the time the friend returned, Brady had stopped assaulting the victim until they reached their camp site off of Chaplin’s Road in Bridgeville. All of the aforementioned information was witnessed by a concerned citizen in the Bridgeville Business Center parking lot. The citizen followed the victim onto Chaplin’s Road where he contacted a trooper working at the entrance to Punkin’ Chunkin’ and advised him of what they had seen. A second concerned witness also contacted troopers advising of a female being kicked, punched and thrown against a

Reward for bald eagle incident
Delaware Wildlife officials are seeking information about the suspected poisoning of two adult bald eagles. The birds were found in an agricultural field near the intersection of Beaver Dam Road and Sammons Road near Lincoln in Sussex County on Oct. 21. One eagle was dead, and the other survived following treatment at Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research in Newark and was released back into the wild on Nov. 2. DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Agents and special agents of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are conducting a joint investigation into the incident. The USFWS is offering a reward of up to $3,500, and Delaware Fish and Wildlife is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a conviction. Anyone with information should contact Sgt. Gregory Rhodes with the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement at 302-739-9913 or 302-542-6102, or Special Agent Daniel Collins with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement in Dover, at 302-730-9184. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Fish and Wildlife Operation Game Theft at 800-292-3030, or by going to the Operation Game Theft website: www.fw.delaware.gov/Hunting/ Pages/OpGameTheft.aspx.

Less than two years ago Pastor Kevin Gillespie of Greenwood United Methodist Church wanted to start a mission that would help the community in response to the tough economic times. The need for baby diapers, formula, food and cereal was a place to start since families with infants and small children had been hit particularly hard by the financial crisis, and so the idea for the Baby Pantry was born. As volunteer Fran Meadows relates, “the Baby Pantry was opened on a prayer”. The congregation responded with drives for the items needed by families with infants. Pastor Kevin put out the word to social service agencies, and several church members who worked at local hospitals also let people know about the pantry. Although it started slowly, the Baby Pantry has grown from a few families to 28 and growing. The Greenwood UMC congregation is a small one with only 120 members and the Baby Pantry is now serving a group of infants equal to 25 percent of the entire congregation. The Pantry now depends on other churches, organizations and individuals for donations. Fran Meadows notes “we are in desperate need. Sometimes we get so low that we just think, what’s going to happen, and God provides. We get a check or donation
and we are able to open another week.” Every Wednesday morning between 9 a.m. and noon, items are distributed to families in need free of charge. Although the original babies have aged out of the program, there is a growing influx of new children to be served. In addition to social service referrals, word of mouth has increased the numbers of babies helped. The Pantry now serves families from as far away as Lincoln, Milford, Harrington, Dagsboro and Salisbury. Given the current economy, the need is expected to grow. Your church or group can sponsor a baby shower to obtain disposable diapers, formula, baby food and cereal. Fran Meadows says “We thank God for everything we can get.” Between now and Christmas, Greenwood UMC is asking your church or group to have a “Baby Shower for Jesus”. When items have been collected, contact Greenwood UMC to arrange pick up. All items must be new. Food items must be unopened and with a good date. This ministry exists as a cooperative ministry between Greenwood UMC, Todd’s Chapel and the Ellendale Charge, in addition to many caring and generous people. For more information, contact Greenwood UMC at 349-4247 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

County employees help Habitat
Nearly two dozen Sussex County government employees traded in their computers and calculators for hammers and hardhats recently to benefit a local charity and needy family. County employees in October volunteered their time to Sussex County Habitat for Humanity by helping build a house at the corner of Greene Avenue and West Sixth Street in Laurel. Volunteers gave six hours of their ‘sweat’ to hang walls and perform other jobs in the home that benefits a single mother and her four children, who hope to move in by Christmas. The Build Day is the latest partnership between Sussex County government and Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization whose mission is to build decent, affordable homes in partnership with lowincome families. In March, the County donated to Habitat for Humanity the use of two vacant houses near Georgetown, which will be used as temporary housing for families waiting to move into their new homes and as quarters for AmeriCorps volunteers.

Criminal Justice Council that certifies compliance with the Declaration will be given preference over any applicant that does not certify compliance. The Declaration is available at http://cjc.delaware.gov. The Declaration of Leading Practices began to take shape in 2007 when the Delaware Supreme Court and the Delaware Criminal Justice Council co-sponsored a two-day summit on racial and ethnic fairness. The summit brought together more than 70 key stakeholders from state government and the community, representing every element of the justice system from arrest to prisoner re-entry, to meet with state and national experts in criminal justice and juvenile justice systems. In 2008, the Sentencing Project recognized the summit as an administrative best practice for state agencies. Justice Ridgely said, “This grant recognizes Delaware’s ground-breaking work to protect civil rights and promote racial and ethnic fairness in our criminal justice system. It will allow us to move forward with achieving and maintaining throughout Delaware the important leading practices which the Delaware Criminal Justice Council has endorsed.”
Delaware will receive a portion of $330 million to develop a new generation of tests designed to provide ongoing feedback to teachers during the course of the school year, measure annual student growth, and move beyond narrowlyfocused bubble tests. The tests will assess students’ knowledge of mathematics and English language arts from third grade through high school. The grant requests are part of the Race to the Top competition and will be awarded to the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) in the amounts of approximately $170 and $160 million respectively. Delaware is part of both coalitions. The PARCC coalition will test students’ ability to read complex text, complete research projects, excel at classroom speaking and listening assignments, and work with digital media. PARCC will also replace the one end-of-year high stakes accountability test with a series of assess-
ments throughout the year that will be averaged into one score for accountability purposes, reducing the weight given to a single test administered on a single day, and providing valuable information to students and teachers throughout the year. The SMARTER coalition will test students using computer adaptive technology that will ask students tailored questions based on their previous answers. SMARTER will continue to use one test at the end of the year for accountability purposes, but will create a series of interim tests used to inform students, parents and teachers about whether students are on track. For both consortia, these periodic assessments could replace already existing tests, such as interim assessments that are in common use in many classrooms today. Moreover, both consortia are designing their assessment systems with the substantial involvement of experts and teachers of English learners and students with disabilities to ensure that these students are appropriately assessed.
Grants will improve assessments
CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS TODAY. DON’T HESITATE! OLD Address
U.S. Senators Tom Carper and Ted Kaufman (both D-Del.) recently announced $5 million in funding to help reverse the effects of the foreclosure crisis in Delaware. The funding was made possible through the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program and will provide targeted emergency assistance to state and local governments to acquire, redevelop or demolish foreclosed properties. “Communities across Delaware, and across the nation, were hit hard by the foreclosure crisis,” said Senators Carper and Kaufman. “This HUD funding will help speed up the process of redeveloping and reselling foreclosed properties, nurturing our communities back to their former health. The Neighborhood Stabilization Program also helps prevent similar problems in the future by offering economic assistance and housing counseling for low income homebuyers. It’s programs like these that will ultimately help our state get back on track.” The funding is provided under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. To date, there have been two other rounds of NSP funding: the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA) provided $3.92 billion and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) appropriated an additional $2 billion. Like those earlier rounds of NSP grants,
Grant helps area neighborhoods
The American Bar Association has selected Delaware as one of four states to receive a two-year $24,000 grant to support a Racial Justice Improvement Project. The grant will allow Delaware to enact key practices to support a justice system that strives to be fair, efficient and accountable. The grant will build on the state’s existing efforts to protect civil rights and promote racial and ethnic fairness. In April 2010, the Delaware Criminal Justice Council, which is dedicated to making positive changes throughout Delaware’s criminal justice system, unanimously approved a “Declaration of Leading Practices to Protect Civil Rights and Promote Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Criminal Justice system in Delaware,” which has been recognized as a model for other states. The Declaration addresses early intervention strategies to protect civil rights and to promote racial and ethnic fairness, civilian and internal complaint processes, management of the use of force by law enforcement, bias-free decision making, personnel and data management, and community outreach.

You don’t always have to be on the front lines to experience war
I usually try to confine myself to medical topics. However, this week’s issue is being published on Veterans’ Day and coincides with the 15th anniversary of my retirement from the Air Force. I thought it would be useful to spend some time discussing the mental health issues related to serving in the military. One of the things that people think about individuals who have not seen front line combat is that they do not experience real warfare. That is not necessarily true. I was serving at RAF Upper Heyford in England in the mid 1980’s. One morning I woke up to find that aircraft from our base had bombed Libya. While that brought an end to Qadaffi’s misbehavior, it was not clear at first how he would react. My youngest daughter was attending a school outside the base limits at the time. There
was a concern about the safety of being in the school. For that reason, all of the students in the school had to be moved to a safer location on base. We lived in the base housing area. There was a concern about the safety of being in an unprotected area. For that reason Security Police were assigned to the housing area. They patrolled the streets with their M-16’s for weeks. I never went to Libya. However, I did experience it. I was the commanding officer at the Shaw Air Force Base Hospital in the late 1980’s. The US military attacked Panama. They ousted Noriega from power. I had to send some of my medical people there to support the operation. One of them wrote me a letter a few weeks later. He told me how scared he was to be there. He told me the kind of living conditions that he had
there. He also told me that the reason he was writing to me was that he never knew his father. I was the closest thing that he had to a father and he felt comfortable telling me about how he felt. I never went to Panama. However, I did experience it. I was the commanding officer of Langley Air Force Base Hospital when Saddam Hussein overran Kuwait. The United States responded quickly. However, the Air Force was able to send its forces more quickly than the Army and Navy. In that first wave, I sent 175 of my people to Saudi Arabia. They set up the first field hospital in the Gulf War. It was in place within 8 days after the invasion of Kuwait. My people were ready to go. The location they were going to was classified. I knew where it was. I could not tell them ahead of time. What I did know was that when they arrived in that country there would be 90 miles of sand between them and Saddam Hussein’s troops. There would be no army forces or marines there yet. I had no idea what Saddam Hussein’s plan was. I did

Peninsula Home Care is wireless Peninsula Home Care (PHC), a leading licensed and certified home health service provider on Delmarva, has launched a new field-based data management system called Point of Care. The Point of Care technology allows PHC healthcare professionals to record accurate, real-time data during patient home visits on wireless laptops. Point of Care’s electronic records can then be accessed and commented on by all PHC professionals providing care to a patient – from the case manager to the physical therapist to the occupational therapist and so on. The files are encrypted and cannot be accessed without authorization. “Point of Care provides an immediacy that paper records cannot provide and the continuity of case management that patients need,” said Kay Satchell, branch director of Peninsula Home Care’s Seaford office, the first to employ the system. “With Point of Care, each Peninsula team member who serves a patient can view and share information in real time – it’s a tremendous advantage for keeping files up to date and ensuring that everyone on a case understands what everyone else on that case is doing.” Physician communication also greatly benefits from Point of Care. The system mandates that information about the patient’s care is sent to the patient’s physician in real time, which in turn ensures that proper plan of care changes, such as treatments and medications, are made in a timely manner. Decreasing the paper trail In addition to improving efficiencies and interdisciplinary communication,
Peninsula Home Care initiated the Point of Care system to stay ahead of increasing demands for accountability from the healthcare industry. New government healthcare guidelines and rulings from the National Health Care Reform Act have implemented great incentives for the physicians to participate in the electronic healthcare record (HER) or the electronic medical record (EMR). Proposed changes to be implemented between 2011 and 2013 are being driven by two things: a need for real-time data and a method by which to access a patient’s medical record, regardless of where they are located geographically. Recognizing how these benefits affect healthcare quality, in coming years Medicare, Medicaid and commercial payers plan to decrease reimbursement to practices that are not using EHRs, providing an even stronger push for adoption. “We have gone from documenting twenty pages of records for each patient to having everything at our fingertips,” said Chris Hall, clinical manager, Peninsula Home Care. By 2011, the more than 150 professionals working in all three Peninsula Home Care branches will be using Point of Care. Peninsula Home Care, established in 1985, provides customized health care case management, nursing, physical and occupational therapy, speech language pathology and access to medical social workers and home health aides in patients’ homes based on each patient’s doctor’s individual orders.

not know at the time that he would stay in Kuwait and not invade Saudi Arabia to attack the people that I was putting in harm’s way. When my people got there, I was responsible for keeping their family informed about how they were doing. I did that by receiving phone calls on a classified line every few days from my in field hospital commander. I only got the calls when he was able to make them. One morning I woke up to see a story on the news about heat stress in the deployed troops. The story took place at the hospital that my people had set up. The patient was one of the people I sent. He did fine. However, his wife saw the story as well. She called me up and let me know that I was not doing my job of keeping her informed. The fact that I didn’t know about it, didn’t seem to matter. I never deployed during the First Gulf War. However, I did experience it. There are a lot of aspects about being in the military that are not apparent to the average person. Some of them are things that you might not even think about.

New drinking water quality site Intent on making information about vital services and resources more accessible to the public, the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and Delaware Health and Social Services’ Division of Public Health (DPH) has launched a new drinking water quality website. Delawareans can now find comprehensive drinking water information by visiting www.waterquality.delaware.gov. The new site provides easy access to drinking water quality data, including water system reports, violation notices, well test information, and the location and status of contaminated sites. An interactive map enables visitors to locate annual water quality reports for public water systems, from which 82 percent of Delawareans get their drinking water. The website, created with help from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, also links to EPA websites and databases. DPH’s Office of Drinking Water enforces the federal Safe Drinking Water
Act by testing public drinking water supplies, reviews water system plans, certifies water system operators, and manages the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, a loan program for infrastructure improvements. DPH regularly monitors 490 public water systems for more than 80 chemical and bacterial contaminants. Private well owners, advised to test their water annually, can learn how to purchase test kits from the Delaware Public Health Laboratory. DNREC’s Division of Water regulates surface water quality, administers a source protection program, evaluates the location of private and public wells for potential contaminants during well construction, and conducts and oversees groundwater cleanups. For more information about drinking water testing, contact the Office of Drinking Water at 741-8630. For information about surface water or groundwater, contact DNREC’s Division of Water at 7399949.
Attorney General Beau Biden recently joined 31 states and the District of Columbia to announce an agreement with sweepstakes company Publishers Clearing House. The agreement comes after a multistate investigation into the company raised concerns about deceptive trade practices, especially those targeted at low-income and elderly individuals.
“There is no excuse for misleading vulnerable people into spending their hardearned money,” said Biden. The agreement modifies the terms of a prior agreement reached with the company in 2001. That earlier agreement resolved States’ allegations that Publishers Clearing House engaged in deceptive marketing practices by mailing promotional materials designed to mislead customers into be-

lieving that purchases from the company would increase their odds of winning. As a result of the current investigation, the states believe that Publishers Clearing House was not in full compliance with the 2001 agreement, and that consumers would still be confused. The investigation revealed the marketing was directed toward elderly and low-income individuals. The most recent agreement includes
stronger provisions and additional conditions to help ensure that consumers are not further misled or pushed to make purchases. Publishers Clearing House agreed to pay $3.5 million to cover the cost of the states’ investigation. Delaware will receive $40,000 in the agreement, which will go to the State’s Consumer Protection Fund.

Laurel High School gets the ‘Dr. Oz’ health program By Tony E. Windsor
Seeking to help promote opportunities for healthy lifestyles, especially in the areas of fighting obesity and the mental resilience crisis, Laurel High School has become a part of the nationally recognized “HealthCorps” project. Started by Dr. Mehment Oz, heart surgeon and host of The Dr. Oz Show, the proactive health movement has a mission to work with high school students and within the communities where they live. Laurel High School is one of only 50 sites throughout the United States hosting the HealthCorps program. In addition to the program at Laurel High School, Delaware has a second HealthCorps site at Thomas McKean High School in Wilmington. The project has been adopted by Nemours Health and Prevention Services who has become the founding sponsor in Delaware. Dr. Oz was in Wilmington earlier this year to announce the launching of the HealthCorps program in the First State. At a press conference held at the Nemours/Alfred I. dupont Hospital for Children in May, Dr. Oz said HealthCorps’ core mission is to empower teens and communities to become agents of change and help the country reach the tipping point

towards wellness now and for the future. As part of the organization’s mandate, the school program extends to the community through health festivals and liaisons with local health resources and non-profits who share HealthCorps’ mission. The program at Laurel High School is being coordinated by University of North Carolina medical student, Sumaiya Sarwar, of Wichita, Ks. To promote the program in Laurel, Sarwar attended a Laurel Mayor and Council meeting and presented information. She made it clear that the program is not restricted to the high school and its students. She said it is important that the health mission be integrated into the community as well. It is the goal of the HealthCorps program, according to Sarwar, to develop interactive activities that will make learning about healthy lifestyles and mental resilience something that is both fun and educational and incorporates practical outcomes. She said there are several activities occurring at the high school both during and after school. There is an after-school club which promotes fitness and nutrition. Mental resilience workshops are incorporated throughout the curriculum by promoting self-esteem, enhancing decision-making and communication skills, fostering healthy relationships and setting long-term goals. The HealthCorps program also demonstrates to students the close relationship between physical health and mental health. Sarwar said there are also special nutritional activities held in the high school common area called, “Commotion in the Commons,” where students are exposed to special lunch time demonstrations and tasting of healthy foods. The program also

incorporates school staff through special fitness programs. The HealthCorps program also offers opportunities within the community. Sarwar recently appeared before Laurel Mayor and Council expressing the desire to meet with members of the community and offer special nutrition, fitness and mental resilience enhancement seminars and special opportunities for collaborations. HealthCorps’ community outreach project will seek to make Laurel a candidate for its, “FitTownUSA,” program which connects and empowers citizens and organizations to bring about health awareness and affect change. It is Sarwar’s goal to
develop ties with the Laurel business community, community service organizations and community health agencies in order to have a community-wide approach to healthy living. Sarwar said she is planning to be a part of a special Health Fair in December at Laurel High School and hopes to have students learn to cook foods from various cultures around the world. She said she is actively pursuing a special “People’s Garden Grant.” The USDA grant has been offered nationally and will provide $1 million to five schools in five states to develop and operate a community garden.

If Laurel were able to get the grant program Sarwar would coordinate the garden and teach students about agriculture production practices, diet and nutrition; and evaluate the learning outcomes. The People’s Garden would also incorporate culinary skills and promote volunteering opportunities. According to the USDA, along with helping to provide children access to a nutritious and safe diet, this initiative also aims to influence healthier choices for all American households. Produce raised in the gardens can be used in the schools’ meals and by student households, local food banks or senior center nutrition programs. The USDA Food and Nutrition Service plans to use the project as a way to
identify models of successful school garden initiatives which then can be marketed to schools throughout the country. Sarwar will coordinate the HealthCorps program in Laurel for two school years. After that, funding will be necessary to keep the program in the school. The national HealthCorps website advocates community-based fundraisers, such as walk-a-thons, auctions, raffles and bake sales featuring whole grain baked goods as ways to help maintain the program. The program costs about $75,000 per year. For more information about the HealthCare program at Laurel High School or to coordinate a seminar or other community health awareness opportunity, contact Sarwar at 316-210-7763 or Sumaiya.sarwar@ healthcorps.net.

Teen drivers too often are not Eskridge designs winning poster prepared to take to the highway ...few teens gained significant experience in more challenging situations, such as driving in inclement weather or in heavy traffic. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety recently released the first naturalistic study using in-vehicle cameras to capture teenage drivers and their parents during their supervised driving phase. Nearly half (47 percent) of parents in the study reported that after the year-long learner’s stage, there was still at least one condition in which they did not feel comfortable letting their teen drive. Yet, more than one-third (37 percent) of these families allowed their teen to obtain a license within a month of being eligible, although a few families restricted driving in certain scenarios. The average amount of weekly driving varied greatly among families, ranging from just twenty minutes to almost five hours the study found. Sixty-eight percent of parents reported that opportunities to drive together were limited by busy schedules of both parents and teens. Teens averaged just over an hour and a half of supervised driving per week, mostly on routine trips along the same routes. Meaning few teens gained significant experience in more challenging situations, such as driving in inclement weather or in heavy traffic. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in this country. The first few years of unsupervised driving are the most dangerous – 1,363 U.S. teen drivers age 15-18 died in traffic crashes in 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). However, teens are clearly a danger to
others as well because the total number of deaths resulting from these crashes was 3,495. In Delaware, 3 teen drivers age 1518 died in traffic crashes in 2008, while the total number of deaths from these crashes totaled 8. Although graduated driver’s license (GDL) systems vary by state, most require at least six months of supervised driving for beginners while several states require up to a year. Delaware requires 12 months of Valid Driving Authority where the teen driver has a Level One Lerner Permit. During the first 6 months, teen drivers must be supervised by the sponsor at all times and must complete 50 hours of driving training, 10 of which must be nighttime driving. After 6 months of driving the level one permit holder may drive without supervision between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. For the first year of driving the only passengers allowed in the vehicle with the permit holder are the supervisor and 1 passenger. When the teen driver with a Level One Learner’s Permit has been driving for a full year and is in good standing (without suspension, revocation etc), the permit will automatically convert to a Class D License. During the supervised stage of GDL, the research showed parents need to: • Ensure ample practice in all driving situations– including frequent practice at night, in bad weather, in heavy city traffic, on rural highways and on busy interstates. • Share their driving “wisdom” to help teens spot dangers that aren’t obvious and see the “big picture.” Parents should use “I” statements, explaining what they would do in critical situations, so teens will be more likely to listen and remember. • Teach teens to drive defensively, be wary of other drivers and anticipate the unexpected things they might do. For example, “Even when I have a green light, I always glance both ways to make sure other cars are stopping, because sometimes they don’t.” For more information about the teen driving study or to see the full report, visit www.AAAFoundation.org.

Campbell University student Megan Eskridge wanted to capture the cartoon quality of the characters for the fall musical, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” but she didn’t want to draw a cartoon. So she found another way to design the poster. The result was the winning poster design for the Department of Theatre Arts fall production. “Cartooning isn’t my thing,” Eskridge said, “but I tried to incorporate the characters and their names and make the design come together in a textual way.” In order to accomplish this goal, Eskridge, whose poster was selected out of a field of other graphic design students, filled the main character’s silhouette with the names of characters and sayings from the strip using a handwriting comic strip font. The result was a comic strip feel without the comic strip images. Eskridge, a junior graphic design/ elementary education major from Laurel, discovered she wanted to be a graphic designer when she took a course in high school. “Both of my parents are teachers, so I knew I wanted to go the education route, but then I got interested in doing design,” Eskridge said. “Now I would like to find some way to combine the two fields like working as a designer for an organization that helps children.” To be a graphic designer, one must know the different technologies and principles of design and be able to combine them in a way that fulfills a specific message. But you must also be persistent, Es-

Kardash served as a messenger to General MacArthur The following profile is one of 50 that will appear in James Diehl’s upcoming release titled “World War II Heroes of Coastal Delaware,” the follow-up to the award-winning “World War II Heroes of Southern Delaware.” By James Diehl As American leadership planned for the next push against Imperial Japan in 1944, Gen. Douglas MacArthur remained firm in his stance that Allied troops must not forget about the Philippines and the Filipino people. He had promised to return to the island nation, and he was not going to bypass the country on his way to Japan. Any offensive maneuvers against the Japanese must involve liberating the Philippines, held MacArthur. The famed American general soon presented a blueprint to do just that to Admiral Ernest J. King, commander in chief of the United States fleet and chief of naval operations – then he waited patiently for a response. A coded message of approval came through a couple of days later to Port Moresby, New Guinea, where MacArthur and other Allied leaders were plotting their next move against Emperor Hirohito. The note was delivered by a man who today resides in coastal Delaware, just a couple of blocks from the sandy shores of the Atlantic Ocean. “It was about 2 o’clock in the morning when the message came through, so I jumped in my jeep and drove to the top of Fairfax Hill, where the general was staying,” remembers Michael Kardash, who is originally from Baltimore but moved to coastal Delaware in 1951. “I knew what the message was because I had broken [the code]. When I got there, Gen. [Richard K.] Sutherland (MacArthur’s chief of staff) looked at me and asked if we needed to wake up the general.” After replying with a Navy-style ���yes sir,” Kardash followed Sutherland into the bedroom and watched as the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces studied the note, expressed his thanks and offered that there would be no reply. Kardash repeated the routine several times during that week in early 1944, breaking coded messages and delivering
them to MacArthur at a hilltop mansion where he had taken up residence. Having close personal contact with a man so important in American military history still holds a special meaning to him today, more than 65 years later. “We were really lucky to have someone like that in command; it was just like working for a boss who you knew was extremely knowledgeable about things,” says Kardash. “I was certainly glad he was on our side. Your duty takes you where your duty takes you when you’re in the military, but I felt very fortunate. I mean, how many chances do you have to come in contact with the Supreme Allied Commander?” Kardash’s World War II story is a memorable, a unique and an exciting one. But what he left to enter the Second World War was just as exciting – he was a gifted shortstop with the Baltimore Orioles organization back when “The Birds” were members of the International League, years before becoming a Major League Baseball franchise. Showcasing his skills at the old Oriole Park at the corner of 29th Street and Greenmount Ave. in downtown Baltimore, Kardash played for a team that history has come to remember as the “forgotten birds” in the storied past of the Baltimore Orioles. Then, everything suddenly changed. Baseball season had been over for several weeks by Dec. 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked the United States naval fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, setting off a chain of events that would send the young shortstop’s life in an entirely different direction. “When we heard about Pearl Harbor, we couldn’t believe that we had been attacked and we were going to war with Japan,” remembers Kardash, who also had a factory job long before the days when the country’s baseball players made the exorbitant salaries they do today. “I was playing baseball at the time and I remember a lot of guys felt they needed to leave the game and volunteer for the service.” Kardash, a newlywed and first-time father, did not enlist in the United States Navy until April of 1943, following the lead of many of the country’s better known athletes. “I kept seeing more and more players

Michael Kardash served on board the HMAS Shropshire during World War II, also working for a time at the headquarters of the 7th fleet in Brisbane, Australia. A veteran of the United States Navy, Kardash personally delivered several messages to Gen. Douglas MacArthur during a short trip to Port Moresby, New Guinea, in 1944.
going into the service, guys like Ted Williams and Bob Feller, and I just thought that I had to be a part of this. I wanted to be a part of this,” Kardash recalls. “It was tough leaving, but I knew we had a mission and a job to do. We had to make America safe for our families, so I went.” After indoctrination school at King’s Point, N.Y., Kardash spent several weeks in communications school learning the electric coding machine (ECM). In the class with him was none other than Aldo Forte, an all-pro tackle for the Detroit Lions and a man Kardash would run into many more times over the years. After completing school, orders came through to report to the 7th fleet, “wherever they may be.” Finding his new duty
station was a challenge, one that wound it’s way through San Francisco and New Guinea before finally ending in Brisbane, Australia, at the headquarters of the 7th fleet. Their ship, the West Point, left San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day 1943 – enjoying turkey their first evening on board – and arrived in Australia nearly two weeks later. Along the train trip through the Australian countryside to Brisbane, many well wishers greeted Kardash and his fellow passengers. “It was one of those old steam engines and we could only go about 25 miles before we had to stop,” remembers Kardash. “All along the route, there were women

MORNING STAR • november 11 - 17, 2010 there with food. We loved that because we didn’t have any food aboard the train, unless it was curried mutton. These women were really glad to see American troops and it was just their way of helping out.” A group of about 30 sailors and nurses reported to Brisbane a couple of days later and quickly learned that their headquarters, on the fourth floor of one of the city’s large insurance buildings, was just two floors below MacArthur’s sixth floor office. After decoding messages for several months, Kardash flew to New Guinea with MacArthur’s staff for a summit meeting, an assignment he got because he was one of the fastest available men on the ECM machine. One of the first men who greeted him in New Guinea was none other than Aldo Forte, who was stationed at Port Moresby. “He looked at me right away and said ‘Kardash, good to see you. Now I know you brought some stuff with you. Let’s have it,’” Kardash recalls. “I had put a couple of bottles of gin in my duffle bag, so they filled a washtub with pineapple juice, then poured in the two bottles I had. All Aldo said was ‘Gentlemen, tonight we will drink to Ensign Kardash.’” After a week of decoding messages for Allied brass – as well as a little time serving as a “second” for a makeshift American boxing team there – Kardash returned to Australia and spent several more months decoding messages. Then he got the itch to serve at sea, aboard “any ship that needed personnel.” He got just that, not serving on an American ship, but aboard the HMAS Shropshire – HMAS was an acronym for Her Majesty’s Australian Ship. The Shropshire was an Australian heavy cruiser that volunteered to serve as part of the 7th fleet, as most ships of the Royal Australian Navy did between 1943-1945. The HMAS Shropshire was commissioned on Sept. 24, 1929 and served the British government until August of 1942. Following the loss of the heavy cruiser HMAS Canberra on Aug. 9 of that year, the British government approved the transfer of the Shropshire to the Royal Australian Navy as a replacement. Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced the transfer in the House of Commons on Sept. 8, 1942. “His Majesty’s government considers that the commonwealth [of Australia] should not bear this grievous loss following the sinking of other gallant Australian ships. We have therefore decided to offer, freely and unconditionally, to transfer His
Majesty’s 8-inch gun cruiser Shropshire to the Commonwealth government. This offer has been most warmly received,” said the British leader. There were only four Americans on board the Shropshire, including Kardash, in a crew of more than 800 Australians. All four were responsible for running the ECS machines and, when duty called, were required to be on four separate sections of the ship. “When we went into action, we had to separate in case the ship got hit by fire or by a kamikaze,” says Kardash. “If we were all in one spot and they wiped us out, the ship would have no communications.” An older ship, the food on board the Shropshire was “pretty rough,” according to Kardash, as the ship did not have appropriate refrigeration or storage for food. So, every now and then, the captain of the ship would send Kardash and his friends out scouring for food. There was one advantage to serving on board an Australian vessel during a time of war, however – unlike on American ships, alcohol was permitted, and consumed on a regular basis. The Shropshire survived numerous kamikaze attacks and two typhoons during her time as part of the 7th fleet, and participated in five battles. On its way to Lingayen Gulf, in the northern Philippines in 1944, the 7th fleet came under attack by Japanese fighter planes and kamikaze pilots. The Shropshire was never hit, but many ships in the fleet were. “We were bypassing Manila when this kamikaze comes out of nowhere, just misses us and hits the Nashville,” Kardash remembers. “Luckily, we were never hit, but we saw so many ships get hit. And we had to bury a lot of men at sea. You’d see the boys wrapping the flags around them and sliding them over the side of the ship. It was very sad, but we had to keep going because the war was going on and we still had missions to accomplish.” Four days after MacArthur’s triumphant return to the Philippines on Oct. 20, 1944, when the general waded ashore with Philippine President Sergio Osmeña before repeating the landing a second time for the media, Kardash and the men of the Shropshire were at Leyte Gulf to secure the nearby beaches and unload troops. The Japanese, meanwhile, were not standing still and soon engaged the Americans in the infamous three-day sea battle at Surigao Straights. “When this began, we were immediately dispatched to Surigao Straights via orders by Admiral [Thomas] Kincaid. Our
job was to go down there and demolish the Yamishiro group,” says Kardash. It was a beautiful battle plan on our part; half the fleet was starboard and half was port. We were the first to hit them and, within a few hours, we had sunk the whole Japanese fleet. We even machine-gunned anyone who was in the water, because we couldn’t let any prisoners go ashore. We didn’t want anyone to know that the 7th fleet was at Surigao Straights.” Gaining the upper hand, the men of the Shropshire, and the 7th fleet, were feeling pretty good about themselves. MacArthur was ashore, the Yamishiro battle group had been destroyed and the war was beginning to go America’s way. Then came a radio message that Kardash will never forget – he was sure his World War II experience was about to come to a sudden and disastrous end. “We got a message that we had to report to San Bernardino Straights [to the north] because [Fleet Admiral William Frederick] Bull Halsey had been suckered out by a decoy and the Yamato was free coming down and sinking everything in its path,” remembers Kardash. “The Yamato was bigger than anything we had and they would have blasted us out of the water. If we had engaged them, I would not be here today. We wouldn’t have had a chance against it.” Named after the ancient Japanese Yamato province, the Yamato was the lead ship of the Yamato class of battleships. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the largest, heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed at the time, featuring nine 18.1 inch main guns, each capable of firing nearly 3,000 pound shells about 25 miles. “We were going up to meet them and I remember thinking ‘Bull, where the hell are you?,’” recalls Kardash. “We were saying our prayers the whole way. This was the one time during the war that I really thought it was probably the end for us.” And it likely would have been, if not for a sudden, and heroic, effort by other members of the United States military. Pilots taking off from nearby American cruisers, men who were nearly out of ammunition but went into battle anyway against the heavily armed Yamato, saved Kardash and the men of the Shropshire. “I don’t know if those boys threw monkey wrenches and screwdrivers at them or what, but they made dummy runs with hundreds of planes that worked in pairs,” Kardash remembers. “Those were brave boys to do that, and the Yamato was suckered out by those planes. One pair after
another came down, and they thought they would be bombed out.” The Yamato turned around and the Shropshire was saved. Later, on April 7, 1945, the Yamato was attacked and sunk by American carrier-based bombers and torpedo bombers. The ship’s sinking all but ended the Japanese naval threat in the Pacific. In addition to Surigao Straights, the Shropshire also served during the battles of Halmahera, Leyte Gulf, Corregidor and Lingayen. In February of 1945, it was assigned to go to Singapore and help out the British – her service with the 7th fleet was over. Soon after, Kardash returned to the United States aboard a tanker. The trip took 21 days to reach California and was highlighted by some sad news coming out of the homeland. “We heard when we were coming back that President Roosevelt had died and we were all very sad to hear about that,” Kardash recalls. As for his thoughts about new President Harry S. Truman’s decision to drop atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945, he feels the same way nearly every member of the American military felt in the 1940s. “I think it was a good thing because the landings would have been so difficult; the Japanese would have fought to the bitter end,” he says. “We all felt it was a quick way to end the war and all the devastation. We felt it was the right thing for President Truman to do and we all supported him in that decision.” Kardash spent most of his post-military life as a manager for a distilling company in Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia, though he did spend one season managing a minor league affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles soon after his return from the Pacific Theater of Operations. He and his wife, Eleanor, had two children, who both served in the military. They also have five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. As for his wartime experiences, he wouldn’t hesitate to do it all over again. “I feel I served my country honorably and I would do it all again,” he says. “We were invaded by an enemy and I felt that to fight for your country was an honorable thing. I was very proud of my service record.” To preorder “World War II Heroes of Coastal Delaware,” or to learn more about Diehl’s project honoring Sussex County’s World War II veterans, visit www.ww2heroes.com.

Coast Day essay, video and recipe winners recognized Attendees recently enjoyed the annual Coast Day event held on Oct. 3, at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. Essay and Video Contest The winners of two Coast Day contests for Delaware school kids were honored during a ceremony at the University of Delaware event, held Sunday, Oct. 3, at UD’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. Coast Day highlights the state’s coastal resources. With that in mind, both contests asked students to reflect on this year’s theme, “Making the Most of Our Coast.” Emily Cook, a student in Bonnie Reidy’s class at William Henry Middle School in Dover, took first prize in the Fifth-Grade Essay Contest. She wrote about Cape Henlopen Beach and ways to protect it for future generations. Taking second place was Nick Outten, a student in Tanya Mock’s class at East Millsboro Elementary School. Third place went to Matthew Lashbrook, of Peter Metrinko’s class at Brandywine Springs School in Wilmington. Three honorable mention essayists also were recognized: East Millsboro’s Madison Baker and Cameron Hall, both in Karen Saylor’s class, and Callie Freda, of Marilyn Vallego’s class at St. Ann School in Wilmington. In Coast Day’s High School Video Contest, now in its second year, students were asked to produce videos under two minutes. A group of students from Caesar Rodney High School in Camden, earned top prize for their submission, “One Person Makes a Change, A Lot of People Make an Impact.” Under the direction of teacher Mary Stokes, the winning students were: Jarid Keen, James Clough, Nick Burkhardt, Tequan Pitts, Abigail Hall, Jessica Hansen, Alex Cox, Ashley Jones, Bradley Schepens, Ashlee Loera, Harry Simon, and Simon Geddie. You can view their video at Delaware Sea Grant’s YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/deseagrant. Second place in that competition was Jennie Elliott, under the direction of Paris Crockett at Caesar Rodney High School. Third place was awarded to Amanda
Bilow and Ashton Dummitt, also Crockett’s students. Food competitions Also honored were the seafood creations. In the Crab Cake Cook-Off, a panel of three judges unanimously chose chef Steven Ruiz’s “Pan Seared Blue Crab Cakes with Pepper and Onion Jam” as first place. They raved about the recipe, saying it was a classic cake with spices that amplified the taste of the crab. Ruiz, chef de cuisine at Maris Grove, a retirement community in Glen Mills, Pa., chalked his win up to determination. This was his third attempt at the competition. He finished second last year. “I use the same base for the crab cake and change the accompaniment,” he said. “Last year I did something a little more mild, and this year I went for something with a little more zing.” Ruiz squared off against seven other finalists in the 21st edition of the contest. He received a $200 cash prize and a sterling silver serving plate. Second place and a $150 prize went to Charles Parkhill of Millsboro, for his “Sussex County Low Country Crab Cakes with Crabanero Remoulade Sauce.” Winning third place and $100 was Keith Starkey and Joe Joyce, both of Wilmington, for their “Chesapeake Crab Cake.” Other finalists in the competition included Carl Zampini of Newark, Pam Field of Rehoboth Beach, Crystal Maccari of Elkton, Md., Terri Carr of Lewes, and Jack Bartley of Lincoln University, Pa. Coast Day guests also got a chance to try the winning soup in the Chowder Challenge. Prior to the event, members of the ACF First State Chefs Association held a competition among 10 of its members to determine which recipe they would serve. The winning entry was created by William Stant, president of the Delaware Technical and Community College Culinary Student Club. Stant, whose usual specialty is desserts, combined clams donated by Seawatch International Inc., of Milford, with Red Bliss potatoes, butter, onions, celery, cream, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, and garlic with one other very special ingredient - bacon - to produce a winner.
Guests enjoyed sampling the many delights in the seafood competition.

Specialty crop block grants issued
Dover-Delaware Department of Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee has announced the Delaware recipients of the Specialty Crop Block Grant funds that are awarded every year through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) for projects designed to enhance the competitiveness of Delaware’s specialty crops. This year, eight Delaware projects will receive a total of $251,741 from the USDA AMS Specialty Crop Block Grant Program established in the 2008 Farm Bill. Specialty crops are defined as “fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops (including floriculture). “These grants are given each year to assist Delaware growers with market expansion as well as the development of new products,” said Secretary Kee. “The competitiveness of Delaware’s specialty crops will be increased through continuing education, applied research, improved technology and genomic research.” This year’s projects include: • Partnering with the Bennett Orchards and the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension to develop a highly productive and cost effective method for establishing blueberries. • Providing students with an opportunity to grow and eat specialty crops as well as develop life skills regarding nutrition, resulting in a healthy lifestyle that includes consumption of specialty crops through school gardening and curriculum. • Partnering with the Delaware Christmas Tree Growers’ Association to improve the practices of growing Christmas trees, promote marketing of Christmas trees, educate members on best growing practices and educate the public on the benefits of growing Christmas trees.

Driver safety and other advice for deer season It’s deer mating season which means you need to keep a watchful eye for deer at dusk and dawn when they are most amorous. White-tailed deer will go to any length to mate, and that includes right into the path of your vehicle, AAA Mid-Atlantic warns. Deer-vehicle crashes can be costly and deadly. Deer mating season began in October and will continue through December. Remember that deer are herd animals, so if you see one, more are likely nearby. Given the presence and prevalence of deer this time of year, area drivers should always wear a seat belt and drivers should remain awake, alert and sober, advises the auto club. In 2007, Delaware police departments logged a statewide total of 1,349 animal-vehicle crashes – the overwhelming majority involving deer – which resulted in one fatality, 43 personal injuries and 1,305 major and minor property damage-only cases. In 2008, a total of 1,474 crashes were reported, resulting in one fatality, 44 personal injuries and 1,429 property damage-only cases. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) estimates that approximately 1.6 million deer-motor vehicle crashes occur each year on roads across the nation. These collisions make up over $3.6 billion in vehicle damage per year, with each incident averaging $3,000 worth of damage, based on statistics from the IIHS. “Insurance agents say most damage from deer collisions occurs in the front or on the side of a car,” said Heather Foti, an insurance counselor with AAA Insurance. “If involved in a crash, our insurance agents encourage drivers to first call local law enforcement for assistance and then to make note of the date, time, street name and take any pictures to help document the incident.” The deer population in the United States is estimated at 20 to 30 million. While driving this fall, AAA insurance agents recommend drivers keep the following tips in mind to stay safe on roadways: • Be observant. Look for deer-crossing signs indicating areas where deer frequently travel. Deer are creatures of habit and may often use the same path again – remember where you see them. • Be alert. A deer standing near a roadside may suddenly run across the road. Slow down and use your horn to scare the deer. Use high-beams for greater visibility. • Look for groups. If you see one deer crossing the road ahead, more are likely to follow. • Never swerve. Instead, slow down and brake. Swerving can cause you to lose control of your vehicle and strike another vehicle or object along the roadway. • Use your horn. There is no conclusive evidence that hood-mounted deer whistles and other such devices work. Use your horn instead to scare the deer. • Slow down. If a crash with a deer is unavoidable, AAA recommends slowing down and releasing your foot from the brake before impact. This will raise the front end of the car during the crash and increase the likelihood that the animal will go underneath the vehicle instead of through the windshield. • Buckle up and do not speed. Lower speed will increase your reaction time. • Do not try to move a deer. An injured deer might panic and seriously injure you. Call police or animal control for assistance.
Register deer by phone, online
The DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife reminds hunters that they are now required to register all harvested deer via the Division’s toll-free phone line, 866-511-DEER (3337) or www.dehip.com,
within 24 hours of harvest and before butcher shop processing. The old system using paper registration forms at check stations and butcher shops was discontinued last year. When registering a deer, hunters will need to know their hunting license numbers as well as the deer management zone in which the deer was harvested. Zone information can be found on pages 19 to 22 in the 2010-11 Delaware Hunting & Trapping Guide. After registering, hunters will be given a 12-digit registration number to record and keep as proof of registration. Hunters having deer processed by a butcher will need to give this number when dropping off the animal. With both Delaware’s deer population and harvest numbers increasing, nearly 14,000 deer are harvested annually and nearly half of those were being registered at check stations. The time required to enter the paper forms used at check stations had become overwhelming in both staff time and expense. In addition, the old system was inefficient – harvest numbers could not be totaled until around May because of the time it took to enter the information into the computer. The Division is continuing to collect data on chronic wasting disease (CWD) and biological harvest data, including antler measurements, weights, and ages. During the peak deer seasons, Division personnel will be stationed at deer processors statewide collecting this information. For more information, contact Wildlife Biologist Joe Rogerson at 302-735-3600.
Sportsmen Against Hunger sites
The DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife again will participate in the Sportsmen Against Hunger Program during the 2010-2011 Delaware deer hunting season. All donated deer will be processed, with the meat distributed to charitable groups participating in the program. Initially, there was some concern that the Sportsmen Against Hunter program might not be funded due to statewide budget cuts, but the Delaware Legislature was able to provide full funding for the upcoming season. The Division of Fish and Wildlife recently finalized deer donation locations for participating hunters, who may drop off their deer at any of the eight walk-in coolers maintained by the division. These coolers are checked periodically, and all donated deer are taken to the Sussex Correctional Institution where they are processed. If a hunter donates a deer, the division requests that he or she call the phone number posted on the cooler, so that the deer is transported to the correctional institution for processing in a timely manner. Any deer dropped off at a cooler also must be field dressed and registered, with the registration number written on the field tag attached to the animal. All deer taken in Delaware must be registered online at http://www.dehip.com/deer/default.asp. The number on the field tag will allow the Division of Fish and Wildlife to verify that a deer has been registered. The coolers for donated deer in Sussex County are located at Assawoman Wildlife Area, Frankford; Division of Fish & Wildlife Mosquito Control Office, Milford; Gumboro Community Center, Millsboro; Redden State Forest Headquarters, Georgetown; and Trap Pond State Park, Laurel. Hunters may also take their deer to any of the participating private butcher shops found throughout the state. In Sussex County, these shops include Johnson’s Custom Cutting, 21404 Burton Road, Milton, 684-1790; JAKOR Enterprises, 18740 Whaleys Corner, Georgetown; 236-6801; and Mark’s Meats & More, 24910 Hollyville Road, Millsboro, 933-0307.

Videos highlight Public Archives
The Delaware Public Archives has completed production on a set of 12 short YouTube videos, the first series of its kind from a State Archives. Videos take viewers “behind the scenes” at the Archives with host Tom Summers to highlight some of the Archives’ notable historic documents, programs, and services available to the public. As the official guardian of Delaware’s state, county and local government records, the Delaware Public Archives stores millions of records that reveal the cultural, social and political history of Delaware and the nation. The series has covered Delaware’s Ratification document, manuscript genealogies, photographic collections, vital statistics, and more. The most recent addition introduces viewers to the “Vietnam Mailbag” Exhibit, which is part of the Archives’ traveling exhibits program. The exhibit is currently on display at the Seaford Museum until Nov. 12. The videos can be viewed by visiting the State’s official YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/DelawareGovernment) and selecting the “Inside the Delaware Public Archives” playlist. Episodes run about 2 minutes each and were all produced with in-house staff and equipment in association with the Government Information Center (GIC), another agency of the Department of State. The first “season” of 12 episodes is now com-
plete, with a second season in the planning stages. The Delaware Public Archives is one of the oldest public archives programs in the country, having been created by the General Assembly in 1905. The Archives has been increasing its overall use of social media to share with the public what it does and how accessible its information is for the amateur genealogist, the history enthusiast, and any other person who is interested in learning about the First State’s history and people. For more information about the Delaware Public Archives, visit http://archives. delaware.gov. The Delaware Public Archives is located at 121 Duke of York St. in Dover. The Mabel Lloyd Ridgely Research Room is open to the public Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. On the first Saturday of every month the research room is open from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.

If you were to ask, what does field hockey, soccer, equestrian, Odd Fellows UN Ambassador, 2000 Little Miss Seaford, and future world leader all have in common; the answer would have to be Seaford High School athlete and academic leader Molly Cain. In a world and environment that has changed drastically in the past decade, Cain has remained grounded on her values and integrity that make her the role model every parent, school, and community dreams about. In a recent interview Cain said, “Education has always been a high priority in our household, education is the key to
success.” As a seven time Academic All Conference Student Athlete Molly has maintained a 4.0 GPA (un-weighted ) and 4.55 (weighted) in high school that ranks her first in the current senior class of 184. Cain believes balance and dedication is important when a student commits to playing athletics, “Time management is really important, I’m not a kid who goes out drinking on a Friday night” and pointed out, “I might miss some movies but it is all worth it.” An accomplished C3 equestrian, Molly joined the United States Pony Club in 2000 and achieved the highest national

Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, N.J., capped off a profitable weekend as he won the 50-lap Big Block Modified Championship driving the Will Brown No. 1W. It was Pauch’s second big win of the weekend and his third in the classic the last of which came in 1993. Pauch took the lead from Matt Jester just before the halfway sign. Saturday night’s victory was worth $7,063 making Pauch’s two day total a hefty $12,588. Jester looked strong from the pole while Pauch, Richie Pratt, Jr., Wade Hendrickson and Jimmy Horton all diced for positions in the top five. A big tangle occurred on the third lap when Kevin Hirthler clipped the inside tires and spun in turn one sending the middle of the pack scrambling for real estate. In all eight cars were involved. Pratt worked his way past Pauch on lap 11. Five laps later, Hendrickson slowed bringing out the yellow and ending his challenge. Chic Cossaboone entered the top five on the restart with Jester again controlling the field. Pauch regained the second spot on lap 19 as Cossaboone got by Horton for fourth. On that same lap both Brett Ballard and Pratt came to a stop bringing out the yellow. Brad Trice powered into the top five but only for a lap as he slowed to bring out the yellow on lap 21. Pauch used the outside groove in the second turn to get by Jester on lap 24. At the halfway sign the top five were Pauch, Jester, Horton, Cossaboone and Howard O’Neal. Horton took second from Jester on lap 28 with Cossaboone following into third. By lap 32, Pratt had made a charge from the rear and was back running in the top five. Pratt got by Cossaboone for third with 10 to go. The final 10 laps were all green and Pauch opened a comfortable lead to take the win. Horton finished in the second spot with Pratt earning a well deserved third. Fourth went to Cossaboone and Jester ended an excellent drive in fifth. “It wasn’t easy by any means,” said Pauch. “The track was pretty demanding tonight and you had to hit your marks.
The only way it seemed to work good for me was getting in low and coming off the high side. I don’t know who was behind me or who was there but we were running hard every lap.” Heats were won by Hendrickson, Pauch, and Jester with H.J. Bunting taking the consolation. In the 25-lap AC Delco TSS Modified feature Brandon Blades was smooth as glass. Blades started on the pole and quickly settled into a rhythm in a race that would only be slowed by three cautions. 2010 point champion, Joseph Tracy stayed in the hunt in second while Westley Smith held down third. At the halfway sign the top five were Blades, Tracy, Smith, Scott Baker and Scott Hitchens. Ryan Anderson made a late race charge and climbed the fourth. The final yellow flew with two laps to go as John Curtis and Taylor McCracken tangled. Blades made no mistakes as he powered to his first fall championship win in his Blades HVAC/Blue Collar Cycles/ Bicknell. The win was worth $1,960. Tracy, Smith, Anderson and Hitchens rounded out the top five. Heats were won by Tracy and Blades. Kevin McKinney led at the start of the 25-Lap TUSA Mod Lite Championship. Kerry King, Jr. got by Tyler Reed for second with Tim White following into third. Brandon Dennis was on the move taking fourth from Ryan Charland and start his charge to the front. By the halfway sign Dennis had gotten by King for second and had reeled in the leader McKinney. Dennis moved on top with 10 to go and drove to his second fall championship win in the Back in Action/ Simpson Construction/Pro. The victory was worth $1040. McKinney finished in second with King, White and James Hill rounding out the top five. Heats were won by McKinney and King. In the 10 lap Vintage championship, C.J. Schirmer held off Jim Pride, Jr. to take the victory. Chuck Tucker took third with two laps to go with Mark Williams fourth and Eric Vent fifth. First sportsman went to Kelly Putz who finished in the sixth spot.
Cain continued academic rating attainable. The “H” rating is equal to a two year agricultural degree and Molly endured a grueling weekend of oral examinations and performance testing in both riding and academics. Cain was the youngest candidate at age 16 to pass the exam which places her in a select group of less than 1% nationwide to hold the “H” rating. She also serves on the International Academic Team for Pony Club, volunteers at riding camps, and has taught riding to younger students. In her freshman year Molly’s horse became ill with a neurological disease. “I couldn’t ride my horse so I decided to go out for field hockey,” said Cain. The beginning was not easy, “I got hit in the face and lost my tooth.” Molly laughed, “Miss Venables shoved it back in; it actually saved my tooth.” Molly became the goalie after coach Rob Perciful suggested she wear a helmet and the coaches tested her ability to block shots. “Coach (Robin) Verdery unleashed the team on me and only two balls went into the net.” Cain attended summer camps to improve her skills and by her junior year it showed. The 2009 Delmar game is a highlight. “It was an intense game and I think Delmar had 17 corners and 20 shots on goal of which none went in.” Molly remembers the coaches talking to her before the game. “They told me that we had to win this game to make the state tournament,” Cain said. Seaford won the game 2-0 and was awarded a seat in the state tournament. Every year brings change and this year was no different; 11 seniors graduated, coach Verdery retired, and coach Perciful retired, “I think our team has done exceptionally well and Coach Venables teaching skills are great,” said Cain. Molly said as goalie she had to learn to roll with the punches, “I emotionally survived a 10-1 loss to Sussex Tech my junior year; as goalie it is not supposed to be your fault but ultimately you are the one who is suppose to be blocking the goal.” Cain admits feelings of guilt and hurt when hearing comments from fans but said, “I learned to be confident in myself and move on to the next game.” Throughout the school year Cain is active in sports; she swims in the winter and plays soccer in the spring. “I’m definite-
MORNING STAR • NOVEMBER 11 - 17, 2010 PAGE 41 ly not the best swimmer, but I’m a good cheerleader,” Cain said. Molly’s endurance and dedication to academics is mirrored in swimming, “I swim the 500 meter freestyle, the event no one wants.” Cain said she enjoys swimming, “I can see Coach (Bailey) Noel yelling for me, I get high five’s when I finish, and we are a team.” As a role model to other students Molly volunteers in several organizations and has been awarded the 2010 President’s Volunteer Service Award. Cain also represents Seaford along with fellow studentathlete and academic leader Ethan Lee on the Henlopen Conference Sportsmanship Liaison Committee. “I believe it is important that we all understand that there is a certain way a Seaford athlete conducts themselves; no matter what team you are on.” She added, “If you are getting repeated disciplinary referral in school maybe you shouldn’t be playing sports but instead focusing on beSEAFORD-INDIAN RIVER- Seaford’s Shaquil Turnage runs with the ball as Indian having better and doing well in school.” River’s Paul Mulrooney chases him during last Friday night’s game in Dagsboro. Photo by This is the same lesson she tells the S.D. Smith third grade class at Fred Douglass where she is a student mentor. “I always try to conduct myself in a mature, polite manner, and try to help others,” Cain added. Molly’s passion for education has helped her to define her future. “I want to save the world. After college I want to go to law school.” Molly continued, “There is no reason that children should be failing and it doesn’t make sense to penalize a school by reducing funding and firing teachers whose children don’t make the marks; then they really don’t make the marks. I would definitely work on that and make more accountability.” Cain said she can see herself in numerous careers, “A human rights attorney, a politician, State Senator or Representative, a Supreme Court Justice, and even President.” Molly may have to wait a few years to make her ultimate mark in the world; until then she is looking forward to spring soccer. “I didn’t get to play last year because I had a class that was scheduled on the day of games.” Molly loves soccer, “The game is fun, aggressive, and I definitely hope I get to play offense” Molly laughed, “I’ve been in the goal my high school career, I want to play a spot where I can score a goal.” FALL SPORTS- Above, Woodbridge’s

Sussex Tech field hockey opens tourney with 8-1 win over CR By Mike McClure
The Sussex Tech varsity field hockey team opened state tournament play with an 8-1 home win over Henlopen Conference rival Caesar Rodney on Tuesday. The defending state champions jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first half and didn’t look back. “We’ve been preaching it (getting off to a quick start) all year and they finally came out of the gates,” said head coach Nancy Tribbitt, who pointed out that her team held a narrow 3-2 lead over the Riders at half-time of their regular season match up. Sussex Tech wasted no time scoring as Abby Atkins scored off a feed from Maxine Fluharty (28:41) before returning the favor less than four minutes later. Atkins added two more goals off assists from Lindsay Rickards and Fluharty to make it 4-0 with 19:12 left in the first half. Logan Pavlik added a goal off a pass from Atkins (16:54) and Kelsey Doherty got into the action with under 10 minutes remaining in the first half. Atkins also picked up the assist on that goal to give her three goals and three assists in the half. “If my teammates hadn’t passed me the ball it wouldn’t have happened,” Atkins
said after the game. “This was one of her best games. She was moving, she was moving the ball around,” added Tribbitt. Sussex Tech held a 16-3 advantage and a 6-3 edge in corners in the first half of play. In the second half, Fluharty scored on a penalty stroke (22:26) and Franny Delrosario netted a goal at 17:08 for an 8-0 Raven advantage. Caesar Rodney’s Lynzi Yearick put the Riders on the board with a goal with 8:02 left, but Sussex Tech held on to win, 8-1. The Ravens ended the game with a 26-6 advantage in shots and an 11-7 edge in corners. Sussex Tech’s Megan Cannon had two saves and Erin Johnson recorded three saves as the duo split duties in the win. The Ravens continue their quest for a second straight state title this Saturday in Dover. But the team only has its sights on the next game, not the championship. “It’s a brand new season. We think about each game individually,” said Atkins. “Today our only focus was let’s beat CR.” “It’s a whole new season and we’re definitely taking it one at a time,” Tribbitt said. “Whoever we play (Saturday) we have to come out with our ‘A’ game.” The Ravens move on to a turf surface

Approximately 100 members of the community joined Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center, the American Cancer Society and the City of Seaford for a vigil walk to Seaford’s Gateway Park. Speakers of the event included (from left), City of Seaford Mayor, Edward H. Butler, Jr.; Representative Daniel B. Short; First Lady of Delaware, Carla Markell; and Nanticoke Health Services President/CEO, Steven A. Rose.
Breast cancer awareness
In October, approximately 100 community members joined Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center, the American Cancer Society and the City of Seaford for a vigil walk to Seaford’s Gateway Park to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Gateway Park was decorated in pink lights and ribbons. Each participant held a pink glow stick to honor survivors and remember those who lost their battle with breast cancer. Community members were encouraged to wear pink during the three-block walk along a lighted path from Nanticoke Cancer Care Center to Gateway Park. Mrs. Markell, First Lady of Delaware and breast cancer survivor, spoke to community members about mammography and early detection. During October, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital Campus and Mears Health Cam-
pus were “Making Strides against Breast Cancer.” Several activities were planned to provide cancer awareness, and Nanticoke employees were encouraged to wear pink on Fridays throughout October. Along with adding pink breast cancer ducks in honor or in memory of someone to the main entrance’s water fountain, Nanticoke’s Employee Activity Committee hosted Basket Bingo to raise money for women’s services, and Nanticoke’s team “Pretty in Pink” participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Sussex Walk on Oct. 3. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition hosted a breast cancer survivor’s tea. For more information, contact Melinda Huffman, nurse navigator, at 629-6615, ext. 3765.

MORNING STAR • november 11 - 17, 2010
Return Day tradition continues Continued from page one
tightly controlled: Gone were peddlers selling cotton candy and oversized balloons. No one threw candy to the crowd from passing floats, no one dashed from the sidewalk to embrace a candidate. And no candidate, after finishing the parade, walked the route a second time, greeting and talking with constituents. Return Day board member Jim Bowden guessed that the rain as well as memories of the 2008 Return Day and long lines at checkpoints kept people away this year. That, and the fact that Biden’s office announced on Wednesday that the vice president would not be there. But many other politicians were there. Congressman Mike Castle, who lost his bid to run for Biden’s former Senate seat to primary opponent Christine O’Donnell, walked in the parade with Sen. Tom Carper and Sen. Ted Kaufman, who was appointed to fill Biden’s seat until after this election. As Castle walked past the crowd, he thanked people for enduring the rain to watch the parade. O’Donnell rode in the first carriage of
the parade with Democrat Chris Coons, who defeated her in the general election. According to tradition, which demands that losers ride backwards in the carriages, she was facing the carriage’s back window. Before the start of the parade, the Approaching Storm, the marching band from Delaware State University, performed in front of the grandstand. “Election time is over and this is a time for all of us to work together to make Delaware as great as it can be,” director Randolph Johnson told the crowd. Miss Delaware Kayla Martel said that Return Day is a “great tradition.” She added, “This is a wonderful day to celebrate the fact that we have the freedom to vote.” Diamond and Chad Brockbrader, Laurel, attended Return Day with their son, Zane, 5. They were looking forward to the parade and to seeing the Seaford High School band, in which their 16-year-old daughter, Kara, plays clarinet, perform. “This is the first time I’ve been to Return Day,” said Diamond Brockbrader, who grew up in Georgetown. “I’m really excited. This is a unique celebration.”
70 years of marriage I, Granville Hearn, graduated from high school in Seaford in 1936. I spent most of my life there until transferred by the Pure Oil Co. to Charlotte, N.C., in 1958. I met my wife in high school. We were married four years later. The Charlotte Observer newspaper ran the enclosed item in the Oct. 10th issue. I would appreciate you doing the same in the Star. Thank you. Granville E. Hearn, Jr. Charlotte 70th wedding anniversary Granville Hearn Jr. Lt. Col. (USAR) Retired, 92, and Pearl Shaw Hearn, 90, of Charlotte, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on Sept. 24, 2010, at Providence Country Club. They were married Sept. 27, 1940, at St. Paul’s Methodist Church in Wilmington. After their marriage of 15 months, the bombing of Pearl Harbor occurred and two years later Granville was in the army. Ultimately, Granville served in occupied Germany and was a witness for two days of the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials. Upon returning home, Granville came back to Pearl and new daughters, Nancy Murray (deceased) and Carol Kuester. Granville realized at that time that his meaning in life was to care for his family. Pearl found herself immediately, as a mother, teacher, and friend to Nancy and Carol, and later Patricia Cline and Gran Hearn III. The couple transferred to Charlotte in 1958. Through the years, Pearl and Granville found time to visit all seven continents and 78 different countries. Today the couple has nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. They say, “We wish we could do it all over again.”

Delaware Libraries to expand broadband capabilities Governor Markell and Lt. Governor Denn have announced that Delaware will receive $1.9 million in federal stimulus funds to help bridge the technological divide, boost employment, and improve education in the First State. Delaware was named as one of the recipients of funding from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), administered by the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). Federal funds will be matched by a $750,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation will also provide $150,000 to help Delaware secure additional federal E-rate funding to sustain broadband connection costs in the future. The combined grant award will fund a program to create specialized computer centers in four major libraries to improve workforce skills, assist with job searches, and provide adult education. Those same services will be delivered electronically to all 32 Delaware libraries. The program will bring mobile service to every library in the state, as well as videoconferencing
equipment and workforce development training. The approximately half a million people with Delaware library cards will be able to access the new services. The Delaware Library Job/Learning Labs project will involve all public libraries in the state and will provide broadband education, access, equipment and support to vulnerable populations in all three counties. The Delaware Division of Libraries will partner with government agencies, educational institutions, and local businesses to expand these services. The computer centers at the Dover, Georgetown, Seaford and Wilmington libraries will become Job/Learning Labs focused specifically on the needs of the unemployed, with specialized training for resume building, job search, and interview skills. Spanish-language training programs will be conducted in Wilmington. The program will fund instruction to as many as 2,000 residents with approximately 29,000 hours of teacher-led training over a three year period. The training will focus on digital literacy, test preparation, and workforce education. For the thousands of Delawareans who
do not have computers or Internet access at home, their public library is an especially important place in a world where employers, schools, and government are relying much more heavily on electronic communication. The grant will be used to upgrade public computer centers at all 32 public libraries statewide, to deploy additional new computers, improve Internet access speeds and reduce waiting periods for library computers. Nearly 40 percent of Americans, often those with lower incomes and lower levels of education, still do not have high-speed Internet access at home. In many communities in Delaware, the public library is the only provider of free Internet access available to residents. The Delaware Division of Libraries will work with the Delaware Workforce Investment Board in implementing the training and job seeking aspects of the project. Other partners include the Delaware Department of Technology and Information, Delaware Technical & Community College, Literacy Volunteers Serving Adults, Christina Adult Education Program, Retired Seniors Volunteer
Program, Delaware Center for Distance Adult Learning, the Delaware Economic Development Office, and Delaware’s Departments of Education and Labor.

Letters to the Editor Liberal Kool Aid is the culprit!
With all due respect to Daniel Richardson’s lovely piece in last week’s “Final Word” responding to my letter to the editor the week before, I am moved again to weigh in on the truth. My comments were directed to a segment of our society that has become rabid and vicious over the thought of a Christian running for office. Mr. Richardson stated that I called anyone who supports the separation of Church and State a “bigot against Christianity.” In actuality my letter said the following: “Socialist college professors and “Bearded Marxists” (i.e. Chris Coons, it was like a joke only not as funny!) have twisted the Constitution to support their intolerance and bigotry against Christians who, compelled by conviction of truth (i.e. Christine O’Donnell), are running for office, very much like the Puritans who came to this country and our Founding Fathers.” If Mr. Richardson believes that Christians should not be allowed to run for office and that the First Amendment to the Constitution forbids Christians from doing so then, yes, I confirm my sentiments; he is a bigot against Christianity. However, I am quite sure Mr. Richardson is much smarter than that; unless he has been drinking too much Liberal KoolAid. Which brings me to the point of this my “Final Word” — the misquoting of my letter is indicative of the very reason the American people have become disillusioned with the media and why Fox News shows’ ratings are soaring. The liberal activists in the Democratic Party finally received the spanking they deserved in the national outcome of this election. The “Pravda” news networks MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NPR and PBS — as well as Delaware’s own New Journal to name just a few, did a horrendous job of being fair and balanced during recent mid-term election coverage and debate moderating. Too bad Delaware is swimming in so much Liberal Kool Aid that we won’t benefit from the turn around our nation is about to experience. We have the “sameold-same-old” Obama/Reid pets and rubber stamps to the leftist agenda. Will someone please let New Castle County know that the rest of the state is tired of their corruption and cronyism? While I’m at it let me say, I believe Keith Olbermann, former commentator on MSNBC, should be allowed, as a private citizen to contribute to the causes he chooses; in this case he should never have signed a contract which restricts him in the use of his own money. But what gets me is that he probably thought he would get away with it. The liberal media is so used to not being called on their pack of lies and manipulation of facts that they suppose they will get away with stuff like this. The worst perpetrators of biased reporting are CNN, MSNBC, NPR and PBS. The reporters on these networks act as if they live in an ivory tower and the rules don’t apply to them — elitist liberal extremists who think you and I don’t know any better when they manipulate the news and statistics to put the liberal candidates in a better light. I say it’s about time for some accountability in the media. Thank you Morning Star Publications for refusing the Liberal
Kool Aid; for the most part you have been fair and balanced. Associate Pastor Kim Birowski Seaford
A few random thoughts
The following was addressed to Bryant, Daniel and Lynn When I was hesitant about having my letter printed, I was hoping that perhaps I might have encouraged you to be more pro-active to balance out the negativity seen in the letters to the paper. And, lo and behold, both of you men took up my channeling and, indeed, wrote editorials in the Final Words section. Great! Daniel, you made the excellent point to walk in others’ shoes, or, simply judge blindly. Bryant, unfortunately, we were conflicted between preventing the second Great Depression and getting our fiscal house in order. I believe that the reason Clinton ended up with a budget surplus was that the economy was unexpectedly robust and tax receipts greater than expectations. The current tax cuts aren’t economically viable to the health of the government but, alas, it appears that Obama has become so bowed that he will cave into the Republicans, something we can ill afford. I found Paul Bradham’s comments on the negativity of the campaign ads, the lack of comity in the political spectrum, and that health care reform having fallen short, matching my own. I am so, so glad to not be seeing one attack ad or another on TV, one right after the next and getting robo calls and the nasty mail ads done on really great paper stock, having all ceased. Lynn, I actually looked at those ugly things, but I applaud your more direct action. And, now that it is Friday, I am channeling back to Monday to say that general sweetness and light prevailed on Returns Day, so you can relax back there in time. One final thing, but just for this week only. Seeing as there was a decrease in the federal debt of $134 per citizen this past week, please send me a check for that amount. (Sorry about the alleged decrease. See this week’s note about your share of the debt on the Final Word page.) Richard Eger
New life for the old Santa House
If you grew up in Seaford, you can’t help but remember the old Santa House that was placed at Woolworth’s at the NCSS. I’m sure every kid of the time has fond memories of the little shack. Hiram Lodge #21 (the Masonic Lodge) in a joint venture with the owners (Seaford Kiwanis Club) have started to restore the old shack that is need of some repair and updating. New shingles have been obtained for the roof, but there are other issues. We are soliciting donations and hope that we can place the shack at the Roses shopping center this holiday season.

Constitutional attorney’s views on Health Care Choices Act By Michael Connelly Ret. Constitutional Attorney
Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected. To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession. The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed. The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own. The irony is that Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care. This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and
seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide. If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law. So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though. The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control. I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable. For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

MORNING STAR • november 11 - 17, 2010
If you choose not to participate, will you choose to complain? If so, the blame for your dissatisfaction lies squarely with you.
Will of the people is loud and clear
With eager anticipation of what I hoped would be an historic display of the “will of the people,” I settled into my easy chair on November the 2nd for an evening of political spectating. I was not disappointed. You see, I am an individual who has a fervent belief in our political system, which I regard as simply the best on earth. Here’s why: Our forefathers, leaders of the “new world” were brilliant and visionary men, who took as their basis for government what they had lived in the “mother” country (England) to achieve an incredibly simplistic idea - freedom and liberty for all. Their greatest strength was, that by past experience, they knew what they did not want. They went on to craft an amazingly flexible, yet enduring document, our Constitution. Later, the Bill of Rights ensured that ordinary citizens were protected from tyranny or the “overreach” of expansive and/or ambitious government. Within the rule of law, citizens were granted welldefined freedoms and liberties, as well as the right to democratically elected representation. As good as it is, our Constitution remains to this day, a work in progress. If it were flawless, there would be no such thing as amendments, nor the need for legislators to write them. If it were not open to interpretation, there would be no need of a judicial branch. And if there were no need to determine a path or course for our country, there would be no need of an administrator to set the policy and priorities. This is what the people believed they had when they voted just 24 months ago. That is, a democracy, within a republic of united, sovereign states. My belief is, that Tuesdays’ mid-term Congressional election results were a direct reflection of a perceived failure by the elected representatives to respect the will of the electorate. No clearer message could be sent. The system works and the process works. But, it is only as good as the individuals who choose to participate. If you choose not to participate, will you choose to complain? If so, the blame for your dis-

satisfaction lies squarely with you. I don’t believe that those who participated are expecting “exiled” Republicans to solve all of our problems, but they are expecting them to respect our granted rights and listen to our concerns. The tea partiers may have led this revolt, but I believe if it were not for them, there would have been another. And when tea partiers say “we want our country back,” geographically, this was accomplished on November 2nd. The center of the country is decidely “red” with the coastlines and some densely populated urban cities remaining “blue.” This is traditionally right where we have always been and, because this was a census year, with redistricting approaching, it will likely remain that way until at least 2020. The “ball” so to speak, now lies in our administrator (the President’s) court. The “shellacking” his party took last Tuesday night is a rightful expression of anger at an arrogant refusal to listen to the citizenry. It had little to do with “emergency actions” taken regarding tarp and stimulus and much more to do with partisan passing of health care, the suing of a state over immigration, the drive to try 9-11 terrorists in civilian criminal courts, the idea that veterans should pay for their own injuries in war, chronic apologies to Muslim countries for (so called) American misbehavior, as well as the idea that a nation of people can spend its way to prosperity. The people have spoken. Penny L. Atkins

One ad campaign stood out from all the other attempts
The 2010 election is almost complete and I am enjoying the void of campaign ads on the airwaves and in print. In viewing ads for local, state and national offices, it was sad to see some of the all out attack campaigns that were run. In some races, I wondered if some people really had a good choice to make when they were making their selection between candidates, based on the ad campaigns that were run. However, in all of the ads I saw, one candidate stood out among the rest. This candidate hailed from Somerset County. The candidate, Charles Otto, a small business owner, ran for Maryland State Representative and won. What made Mr. Otto stand out among the rest is he did not attack his opponent and he ended his ads with the statement, “It would be my honor to serve you in Annapolis.” After seeing the results of this year’s election, I believe the number one reason elected officials were sent home from their office was they failed to serve the people they had been elected to serve. For those who have been elected during 2010, I hope that they will take the lead from Mr. Otto in Somerset County and they will serve the people that elected them. When someone is elected, they are chosen to represent the people of a certain area. Some elected positions are volunteer positions, others are paid and the salaries are probably generated by the people they are supposed to serve. So, my wish for this year’s winners of the 2010 election is they will serve the people that elected them. This includes those that did not vote for them because they still should represent the best interests of the people they are to serve. Maybe if they do a great job in their elected office, they will not have to run negative ad campaigns and re-election will be much easier the next time their term of office comes to a close.

Conference was insightful look into need to protect agri-business
The “Today and Tomorrow” conference held at Del Tech recently was very useful and insightful. The speakers were well prepared and the information was well worth my attendance. “Getting back to basics” was the theme and the main topic was agri-business. The keynote speaker was Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee and the other presenters from the
family farm, poultry and food processing industries are, and have been, Sussex County’s mainstays in the labor market. There were a few areas that stood out and most notable is the perception or reality of “over-regulation” by state and federal government. Many times these seemingly little annoyances can be problematic to farmers and related businesses and downright unattainable and expensive. Should we be looking for ways to validate the employment opportunities that agriculture brings to our county? Absolutely. I hear of no one questioning the impact of one dollar of sales being multiplied by five for the actual contributions agri-businesses make to our county and state economy. The most immediate concern is the Nanticoke Watershed Tributary. It is Delaware’s largest watershed and the state manages or owns well over 3,000 acres along its path. At issue is the regulations that will come from the Pollution Control Strategy that is in the developing stage. Hopefully the public will be well engaged and the end product will be achievable and affordable. My concern about this is born from the discussions and eventual adoption of the Inland Bays Pollution Strategy Plan. That plan has an estimated price tag of 90 million dollars and the inspection of over 17,000 individual septic systems. Also, not included in the costs is the relocation or removal of effluent discharge from local municipalities. That cost will be shared among the users. Most of the regulations will be developed by department employees and no further help or approval is required from the General Assembly. Public meetings will be held, some local, some in Dover, and a record will be kept, but the final product will be at the discretion of the Secretary of DNREC. For example, the Inland Bays Pollution Control Strategy was signed after the adjournment of the General Assembly and over the objections of some of the affected members. This is not good policy and what was signed took effect years down the road to boot. My point is we, the public, need to stay involved and make sure there are raw cost estimates and justification for what is passed out. This has the potential to ruin the agribusinesses in this area.

Final Word A closer look at ‘The Spin’
Facts are facts, they say, but even undisputed facts can be reported in more than one way. Pundits call this “spin.” In the interest of being balanced, I chose two examples from the recently released unemployment figures as to justify how this principle works. First the announcement from the Bureau of Labor Statistics: Nonfarm payroll employment increased by 151,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 9.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today (Nov. 5). Since December 2009, nonfarm payroll employment has risen by 874,000. First Perspective Today we learned our economy added 151,000 jobs in October, and the private sector was leading the way yet again, marking 10 consecutive months of uninterrupted private sector job growth for 2010. After losing over 8 million private sector jobs in 2008 and 2009, the private sector has started to recover, adding over 1 million jobs since the beginning of this year.
U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del)
Second Perspective “October marks the 18th straight month that unemployment has been at or above 9.4 percent — the longest period of time
Crude oil approaching the $90 a barrel mark means motorists can expect gas prices to rise. It’s an ominous sign. Just four years ago, on October 25 2007, oil prices hit a then record-high of more than $90 a barrel, within two weeks consumers were spending in excess of $1.2 billion each day for gasoline. Crude Oil Prices Crude oil began the week just under $82 a barrel and never looked back, clawing its way up to $86.85 Friday, its highest level in more than two years (the last time crude oil closed higher was October 8, 2008 at $88.95). Early Friday morning crude touched $87.22, its highest intra-day price since October 9, 2008 and surpassing this year’s peak of $86.19 on May 3.
of sustained high unemployment since the Great Depression. That is as remarkable as it is sad for millions of American families who increasingly cannot make their mortgage payments. Foreclosures are still at all time highs, even as Barack Obama claimed that the worst of the crisis was behind us. Obama’s policies have failed to put America back to work.

Federal Debt as of November 10, 2010 at 9:55 a.m. $13,732,160,806,243 Population of United States 309,454,146 Each citizen’s share of debt $44,375 The average citizen’s share of debt increased $33 the past seven days. The debt increased by more than $12 billion and the population increased by 42,446. Source: brillig.com/debt_clock Note: Last week’s Federal Debt report had an error. The debt per person actually increased $134. The Federal Reserve’s announcement of a fresh monetary stimulus plan aimed at lowering interest rates, higher than expected U.S. jobless claims and a continued weakened dollar will remain the principal driving factors in the oil market.
A look ahead “Crude oil prices reached 2010 highs last week, which will likely translate to slightly higher gas prices in the week ahead, as gas prices typically follow crude oil trends,” said Jana L. Tidwell, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson. Local pricing On Wednesday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.739 to $2.899 a gallon. The low is six cents higher than a week ago and the high is eight cents more.

A great tribute to farming
Woodland United Methodist Church was fortunate to be a very small part of the “Ross Mansion Fall Ag Festival” recently. The members of the Community Planning Committee under the leadership of Ron
and Sue Breeding arranged and produced this tribute to America’s farm family and agricultural industry and should be proud of a job well done. It was a pleasure to see people relaxing and enjoying the exhibits and entertainment in a beautiful park-like atmosphere as well as experiencing the history of both the Ross Mansion property and farming on Delmarva. Residents of this area should be proud of our history and the contributions farmers have made to our country. Remember that Delaware is the “first state.”
Last Laugh Dearly departed The graveside service just barely finished, when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little old man looked at the preacher and calmly said, “Well... she’s there.”
