The agribusiness arm of Perdue Incorporated is moving its headquarters, currently in Salisbury, to Seaford. The move will mean about 120 executive and support jobs for the area. Perdue AgriBusiness intends to make an $8 million capital investment in its new Seaford office building. The site for the office has not been selected. But Seaford Mayor Ed Butler said that Perdue is especially interested in being in downtown. Perdue hopes to occupy the new
building in 2012. Announcement of Perdue’s plans came Tuesday morning, at a press conference at Seaford City Hall. Gov. Jack Markell called the move “a huge deal.” “This is a great city in a great county and to see them combine with a great company is terrific,” he said. “Seaford was hit hard with the loss of DuPont and downsizing at the nylon plant. We want to do everything we can do to rejuvenate Seaford’s economy.” “This is very exciting,” added Butler. “Think about what 120 good-

It is also recommending approval of a $375,000 grant to help with creation of new jobs. The money would come from the Delaware Strategic Fund and requires approval from the Council on Development Finance.

The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that the Woodland Ferry is shut down for routine maintenance and its annual Coast Guard inspection. Routine maintenance will include, but is not limited to, checking and replacing fluids, examining the thruster, as well as checking all valves and pumps. Crews will also examine the engine to ensure maximum operating efficiency. The U.S. Coast Guard inspection ensures compliance with U.S. Coast Guard regulations and safe operation of the vessel. The ferry will be returned to service after the maintenance work and a successful inspection. Return to service date is expected to occur within four weeks depending upon the results. DelDOT appreciates the patience of motorists and area residents during the ferry’s downtime.

Accelerate your savings with November’s CD rates!
The Internal Revenue Service is contacting more than 2,600 Delaware tax return preparers to remind them they must renew their Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). The IRS will require the use of the PTIN on all federal returns prepared by paid tax return preparers starting Jan. 1, 2011. The IRS recently sent notices to 2,644 Delaware tax professionals who currently have PTINs as a reminder to renew. Recipients are urged to avoid any last minute rush by renewing their PTIN online now. Tax professionals who received their PTIN prior to the new system launch on Sept. 28, as well as those who do not currently have a PTIN must register using the IRS Tax Professional Sign-Up System at www.IRS.gov/taxpros. There is a $64.25 fee. The nine-digit PTIN was created several years ago so tax preparers could avoid using their Social Security Number as identification on the tax returns that they prepare. The requirement to use the PTIN is one of the provisions in a new oversight program to help regulate the tax preparation industry. Everyone paid to prepare all or substantially all of any federal tax return or claim for refund must have a PTIN. The requirement applies to all tax return preparers, including those who are enrolled agents, Certified Public Accountants and attorneys.

Perdue will locate in Seaford in 2012 Continued from page one
Alan Levin, Delaware Economic Development Office director, said at the press conference that getting Perdue AgriBusiness to move to Seaford was a collaborative effort among representatives of the state, city and county. Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee added that that “reflects the Delaware way, with different organizations working together to get the job done.” Two weeks ago, Mountaire Farms announced a $34.5 million expansion at its processing plant near Millsboro to construct a rendering a resource-recovery facility. That and the Perdue AgriBusiness move demonstrate the state’s commitment to agriculture and the food processing industry, Kee said. “Efforts like these create momentum, help to keep our farms profitable and mean more jobs,” he added. “And that means good news for the environment as we can keep open space, which is so important.” Perdue Agribusiness corporate head-
quarters are currently located on Zion Church Road in Salisbury. The office building is 40 years old and is too small to accommodate the growing business, president Dick Willey said. Other operations at the site, including a grain and soybean mill, will remain there. Perdue Incorporated’s corporate headquarters will also remain where they are in Salisbury. The office building there is undergoing a $12 million makeover. Perdue AgriBusiness is a leading merchandiser, processor and exporter of agriculture products. It has more than 60 grain elevators with a capacity of more than 60 million bushels of storage as well as three protein blending mills, three soybean crushing operations, an edible oil refinery and two rendering facilities. Of the six branches that Perdue AgriBusiness operates, three have facilities in Delaware. Perdue Grain and Oilseed and Venture Milling have operations in Seaford and Perdue-AgriRecycle is just south of Blades.
Victorian Christmas at Ross Mansion adding an art show By Anne Nesbitt
A new feature this year at the Victorian Christmas at the Ross Mansion is an art show. Sketches and paintings depicting indoor or outdoor scenes of the Ross Mansion and Plantation are highly desirable in keeping with the 150th Anniversary Celebration. However, entries are not limited in that way. Any aesthetically pleasing art works are eligible. Even craft work typical of the Victorian era is acceptable. The art will be on display throughout the three days of the Victorian Christmas, December 10, 11 and 12, in the various rooms of the Mansion. The displayed items will be offered for sale but, sold or unsold, should not be removed from the premises until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12. Artisans wishing to participate should bring their artwork to the Seaford Museum on Monday, Nov. 29 or Tuesday, Nov. 30, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. If neither of these times is convenient, an interested artist should call the Seaford Historical Society office at 628-9828 to arrange another time. All art works will be juried on Wednesday, Dec. 1. All entrants will be notified after this date as to whether or not their entries are to be left for display and sale. Anther innovation this year is the Steeplewalk on Sunday evening, Dec. 12. It starts at 6 p.m. at St. John’s Church, then continues to Mt. Olivet Church, to St. Luke’s Church with walkers singing
Christmas carols as they travel between churches. There will be entertainment at each church and refreshments as they conclude at St. John’s Church. There is no charge for this. Reservations are not required. Continuous activities during the three days of the Victorian Christmas consist of tours of the Mansion as decorated by the Spade and Trowel Garden Club of Seaford and the famous slave quarter, “Meet the Ross Family” as impersonated by SHS members, unique gift items in the Boutique and refreshments. Co-chairs for this event are Judy Watson and Teresa Wilson. For further information call the SHS office at 628-9828.

Cancer Care Center receives gift The Starrlight Fund recently donated $1,200 to the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center to assist women who have ovarian cancer. Tamra “Tammy” Starr Brittingham created the Starrlight Fund through the Delaware Community Foundation after undergoing many chemotherapy sessions in her own battle with ovarian cancer. Brittingham passed away on Aug. 3 and her husband, Michael Pelrine and son, Eban Brittingham continue to keep the Starrlight Fund alive. The funds will be used to assist with non-medical as well as medically related needs. For example, women are often unable to work while in treatment and find themselves unable to pay a utility bill to avoid disconnection or rent/mortgage to avoid eviction or foreclosure; buy groceries; or get transportation to and from treatment. The money also assists women in financial crisis who need help meeting health insurance copayments, paying for prescriptions not covered by insurance and paying for similar medically related needs.
Work expected even on Black Friday

According to Del DOT officials, the milling and paving of Stein Highway (from west of the Stein Highway Bridge to Westview) is expected to begin this week and will continue, weather permitting. The center lanes and left turn center lane will be done first, with the outside lanes done last. The milling will take place in both directions, followed by paving. They plan to work on Black Friday and anticipate a completion date by Dec. 3. The urgency for this work is twofold. First is the hot-mix plants stop production during the winter months, which would delay the job until spring. Second is that the detection loops will be reinstalled, which will return the traffic signals back to their normal working order. Keep in mind that all work and its time frame are subject to change due to weather. The City would like to thank the community for their cooperation and encourages anyone living, working or doing business in this area to allow extra time in your travel.

Ducks Unlimited supports trail Ducks Unlimited (DU) recently led an effort to provide comments to the National Park Service in response to the 2010 Draft Comprehensive Management Plan for the Capt. John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. DU was joined by 32 national sportsmen conservation organizations in urging the trail’s planners to ensure and encourage opportunities for participation in the historic Chesapeake Bay cultural activities of hunting, fishing and trapping. “The importance of waterfowl and waterfowl hunting in the Chesapeake Bay area cannot be overlooked,” said Kurt Dy-
roff, the director of conservation programs at Ducks Unlimited’s Annapolis, Maryland office. “The pursuit of waterfowl and other game was essential to the survival of early American explorers and inhabitants including Capt. John Smith,” Dyroff said. “Today, the Chesapeake Bay area supports nearly 35 percent of all waterfowl in the Atlantic Flyway, and waterfowl hunting is still a fixture in many households just as it was more than 400 years ago,” he added. Chesapeake Bay has been an abundant source of fish and fowl since before settle-
ment. Today, thousands of families from the region participate in the same outdoor activities that have taken place there for hundreds of years. Sportsmen and women pump significant dollars into the local economy every year. Ensuring that hunting, fishing and trapping are part of the trail’s recreation plan will guarantee future generations access to the same natural treasures we enjoy today and our ancestors enjoyed in the region’s past. Ducks Unlimited is the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving North America’s continually disappearing waterfowl habitats.
Sen. Carper reacts to USPS losses Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) released the following statement in response to the Postal Service’s announcement that it lost $8.5 billion in the last fiscal year. Sen. Carper is the chairman of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Federal Financial Management, Government Information, Federal Services and International Security, which oversees the operations of the U.S. Postal Service. Sen. Carper is a co-sponsor of the Postal Operations Sustainment and Transformation (POST) Act (S. 3831). “This latest historic loss by the U.S.
Postal Service is disappointing but not surprising given the serious financial peril in which it currently finds itself. The effects of the Great Recession combined with systemic flaws in the Postal Service’s business model and a number of financial and operating restraints placed on postal management have brought the Postal Service to the precipice of financial ruin. “They may also represent the most serious threat to the institution in its over 200 year history. If corrective action is not taken quickly, the Postal Service will likely run out of cash and borrowing authority
by this time next year, placing its ability to continue operations in serious jeopardy. “This report underscores the urgent need for Congress to move swiftly to consider comprehensive Postal reform legislation, which I introduced in September of this year, in order to avert a catastrophe for the Postal Service. “I hope my colleagues and the Administration will take this report to heart and work with me to address the challenges facing the Postal Service so we can protect the vital services American families and businesses depend on.”

Business State holds down workers compensation premiums Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn has announced that Delaware, as a result of efforts made between 2006 and 2008, has improved more than any other state in America in holding down the cost to businesses of paying workers compensation insurance premiums. Denn made the announcement to emphasize the improved business climate in Delaware. Delaware’s workers compensation premiums, which were once as bad as the third highest in America, have dropped down to 34th among the 50 states. No other state in America saw such a significant drop in its workers compensation premium rankings in the two year period since the last national study. Delaware’s rates, which were once the
highest in the region, are now lower than New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Denn stated that the dramatic change in Delaware’s rankings was due to two efforts. One was legislation passed by the General Assembly in 2007 that allowed the state to hold down the medical costs associated with workplace injuries. The second was a series of rate reductions that Denn ordered as Insurance Commissioner in 2007 and 2008, when he determined that insurance companies were charging higher premiums than their costs warranted. Together, these efforts created a 45% average reduction in workers compensation premiums for Delaware businesses, and caused Delaware’s status relative to other states to dramatically improve. The 45% rate reduction also injected tens of millions of dollars into Delaware’s economy to help soften the blow of the national economic downturn.

Sally Higgins at home in downstate Delaware By James Diehl
hree years after the end of World War II, in 1948, Sally Higgins came to Sussex County for a job interview – the soon-to-be University of Delaware graduate was introduced to a whole new world, one she would never dream of leaving these days. Her first impression of “Slower Lower,” however, was less than earth shattering. “The principal of Georgetown High School was at the university and talked my roommate and me into coming down for job interviews,” remembers Higgins, who grew up on a farm just south of New Castle. “Well, we took the train and that train stopped in the middle of nowhere. We got off and there were chicken feathers flying all over the place. It’s a wonder I ever took the job.” More than six decades later, Higgins is Sussex County through and through; she now says she wouldn’t dream of ever leaving southern Delaware. A former school teacher and guidance counselor, Higgins has been retired for nearly 20 years. But you’d never know it by visiting Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, just one of a dozen or so organizations she has devoted her time to over the years. Starting with the hospital in the 1960s, Higgins has given nearly 16,000 hours of her time to the facility she calls a “godsend” to the local community. Serving for many years as treasurer of the hospital’s hospitality shop, Higgins has seen western Sussex County’s only major health care facility blossom through the years to what it is today. “I decided a long time ago that I would do anything I could to help the hospital, and that’s what I’ve devoted my volunteer hours to doing,” she says. “I’m just glad I’m still healthy enough to come out here and help. Being a widow is not an easy thing, and this gives me a reason to get out of the house. Otherwise, I think I’d just wilt away.” “As a volunteer, Sally is in a league of her own,” adds Jean Baldwin, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital’s director of volunteer services. “She is totally dedicated to Nanticoke and to her community. I just wish that I could clone her.” In addition to her work at Nanticoke Memorial and at the hospital’s Mears Health Campus, Higgins has also devoted her time through the years to many other

Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant Richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com community organizations, including the Curiosity Shop, the Friends of the Seaford Library, the Boys & Girls Club of Western Sussex and the Seaford Historical Society. The original New Castle County resident has embraced the Sussex County way of living through the years, giving more to her adopted hometown of Seaford than most people could even think of giving. It’s been a rewarding and fulfilling journey, one she still travels on nearly every day – just don’t mess with her card game. “I will do volunteer work at any time, other than when I’m playing bridge,” says the feisty 84-year-old. “I just loving staying busy, and I love playing cards. But I’ll volunteer any other time.” Sally Higgins grew up during the Great Depression on a family farm nestled near the banks of the Delaware River, between New Castle and Delaware City. While she lived there, she and her family never did get electricity, but there were certain benefits to living on a farm during the greatest economic downtown the country has ever experienced. “During the depression, we actually lived pretty well because we were farm people and we grew all this great food,” says Higgins, who remembers filling many an oil lamp during those trying times. “We had rows of raspberries and corn. We also had pigs and I remember hog killing time in February; we used to eat all this scrapple.” It’s those tough times in New Castle County that instilled in Higgins the need to help her fellow man. It was a tough life growing up, but one that made the long-time community volunteer what she is today. She never did envision making a life for herself in Sussex County, however. “My husband was born and raised in Sussex County and we just happened to

meet during a football game at the University of Delaware,” says Higgins. “Back then, it was my thinking that, if you went south of Dover, that was going to be the end of you; nobody would ever hear from you again. But you can’t get me back to New Castle County now.” Her time volunteering at the hospital has allowed Higgins to get back in touch with many people she knew a long time ago. That, she says, is now one of her greatest joys. “People will come up to me and I don’t know whether I taught them in Georgetown, Laurel or Seaford,” she says. “It’s just been great because I’ve re-met so many people that I’ve worked with through the years. I just really like that.” Higgins lost her husband, George, a World War II bomber pilot, in 1982. A devoted community activist, George Higgins was very involved with the Seaford Kiwanis Club. Today, the fountain that rests in Kiwanis Park in Seaford is named in his honor. His wife saw to it that his memory and his commitment to Seaford would never be forgotten.
“I put that fountain in there because of George; when he was in Kiwanis, he was in charge of the parks,” says Higgins. “He was just very community minded. He used to get me in the car at night and we would go out checking each of the parks. He even served on town council for a term because he felt as though citizens should each take a turn.” Less than 10 years ago, Sally Higgins was honored by the Soroptomist Club of Seaford with their annual “Woman of Distinction” award. It was the second time the club recognized her with one of its highest honors. “They treated me really well to give that award to me twice,” says a humble Higgins. “It’s just tremendous that they did. I’m very proud of the fact that I was able to be a member for so long.” Sally Higgins has lived a life filled with community service and volunteerism and has done it with gusto and passion. Not bad for a woman who used to think that Sussex County was where people went to “disappear.” “I’ll be here until the good Lord takes me,” she says today with a smile.

Doug Butler was ready to quit, but that was 29 years ago By Lynn R. Parks There was a time that Doug Butler wanted to quit the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department. He was young and hadn’t been with the department very long, and he had already had to respond to 10 calls for help from people who eventually died. “I hadn’t even ever been to a funeral before, and here I was trying to help all these people who died,” Butler said. “It was very difficult for me, and I turned in my keys and told them that I couldn’t do this anymore.” Cooler and wiser heads prevailed. Fire company members Norman Tate, who died in January 2004, and Donald Tull talked with Butler and convinced him to stay on for at least six more months. Then, they arranged to have him go out on ambulance runs with department volunteer Mike Vincent, who was serving as chief at the time. “Mike took me under his wing,” Butler said. “He taught me the importance of the fire service. The fact that I am still here has as much to do with Mike as with anybody.” That was more than 25 years ago. Butler is still active with the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department, where he served as chief for five years. And in September, he was sworn in as president of the Delaware Fire Chief’s Association, a position in which he will serve
until September 2011. “Doug is truly dedicated to the fire department, to the fire service and to his community,” said Vincent, who is still an active member of the fire department and who also is a member of the Sussex County Council. “He is always determined to do whatever he can to help people.” Butler, who is 50, joined the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department in June 1981. In addition to holding a variety of positions with the department, he has also served with the Sussex County Fire Chief’s Association, including as president. He works at Butler Sewing Center, Seaford, which he owns with his parents, Ed and Shirley Butler. He is also employed by the Laurel Volunteer Fire Department as an emergency medical technician. Butler has three children. He lives in Seaford with his friend, Sherry Smith. Butler said that he believes that service with a local fire department and service on the state level are equally important. On the state level, he said, volunteers are working with legislators to ensure that departments receive adequate funding. And on the local level, they are working to help people in the community. He expects to be a member of the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department “until the day I die,” he said. “The fire department is a very impor-

Bridgeville Public Library receives a new flag pole By Lynn R. Parks
Several months ago, Larry Skala visited the new Bridgeville Public Library. He returned to his home in Heritage Shores determined to right a wrong that he had spotted there. The library, which opened in August 2009, did not have a flagpole. On the day that Skala visited, library director Karen Johnson had hung a small flag on the building, next to the front door. “The flag was all wrapped around its pole,” Skala said. “I hate to see that.” Skala told his wife, Ruth, who is president of the library friends group, that he was going to undertake an effort to get a flagpole planted in front of the library. On Thursday, Veterans Day, about 30 people gathered to watch as the Stars and Stripes was run up the new library flagpole for the first time. “Old Glory, fly proudly,” Larry Skala said when the flag reached the top of the pole. An Army veteran, Skala said that his father, Josef, was “one of the biggest flagwavers I’ve ever known.” The elder Skala immigrated to the United States from what is now the Czech Republic when he was 25 and never returned to his native land. “He used to say, ‘Why should I go back?’” Larry Skala said. “‘I’m an American now.’” With a spotlight shining on it, the new flag will fly in front of the library 24 hours a day. Cost of the flagpole and its installation was $2,605. Contributions to the project came from the library’s board

praised the flag-raising as a “special event on a special day.” He praised “those who have stepped up to be brave” for ensuring freedom in
the United States, and asked the people present to remember and honor veterans. He also said that it is appropriate that the U.S. flag be flown in front of the library. Throughout the world, he said, “this flag has given people hope and a guarantee of democracy.”

A Loving Tribute
What must I do to be saved?
Acknowledge your sin and place your trust in Christ. All who place their trust in Christ in this way are adopted as God’s children. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23 The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. - Romans 10:9
Karen Bongard officiating. Interment will follow at Bloomery Cemetery near Smithville. Friends may call one hour before the service on Thursday. To share special memories with the family or for more information, visit www. framptom.com.

Health Flu shots offered to public
Sussex County residents paying their property taxes, obtaining marriage licenses or applying for building permits will find one more convenience available at County offices this November: on-the-spot, easyto-get flu shots. Sussex County government and Bayhealth Occupational Health are teaming up to make flu shots available to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18. The shots are $26 each, and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis in the atrium of the County Administrative Offices building, 2 The Circle, in Georgetown. Only cash will be accepted. No appointment is necessary. Ordinarily, flu shots are offered through doctor’s offices, local clinics and the State’s Division of Public Health. However, an overstock order of flu shots that had been set aside for another employer made it possible to pass on an estimated 300 doses to the public, said Kimberly Beauchamp of the County’s Personnel office. For more information, contact the Sussex County Personnel office at 8557711, or Bayhealth Medical Center at 6747947.

Drivers fall asleep at the wheel Two out of every five drivers (41 percent) admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel at some point, with one in 10 saying they’ve done so in the past year, according to a new AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety study. More than a quarter of those surveyed admitted they drove despite being so sleepy that they had difficulty keeping their eyes open in the previous month. Yet eighty-five percent of drivers surveyed felt it was “completely unacceptable” for someone to drive in the same incapacitated state. Unfortunately, drivers may not always be aware of the effects of fatigue resulting from a lack of sleep. AAA Mid-Atlantic wants all drivers to recognize the seriousness of this dangerous, yet underestimated, driving practice. A new analysis of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash data estimates that approximately one in six deadly crashes (16.5 percent) involve a driver who is drowsy, while one in eight crashes result in occupant hospitalization and one in 14 crashes resulted in a vehicle being towed. These percentages are substantially higher than most previous estimates, suggesting that the contribution of drowsy driving to motor vehicle crashes, injuries, and deaths has not been fully appreciated. To remain alert and avoid drowsiness, AAA Mid-Atlantic suggests:
• Getting plenty of sleep (at least six hours) the night before a long trip; • Scheduling a break every two hours or every 100 miles; • Traveling at times when you are normally awake, and staying overnight rather than “driving straight through”; and • Stop driving if you become sleepy. Someone who is tired could fall asleep at any time. Symptoms of sleepiness include, but are not limited to: • Having trouble keeping your eyes open and focused; • The inability to keep your head up; • Daydreaming or having wandering, disconnected thoughts; and • Drifting from your lane or off the road, or tailgating. Now that Standard Time went into effect yesterday, with clocks being turned back an hour, motorists will be contending with a drowsiness contributor – darkness – which will be settling in earlier in the day. According the 2008 Delaware Annual Traffic Statistical Report, the 4 to 8 p.m. timeframe represented the highest time period for crashes during the course of the day in Delaware with 5,289 (27%) crashes reported. For more information about the drowsy driving study, including the full report and fact sheet, visit www. AAAFoundation.org.

MORNING STAR • NOVEMBER 18 - 24, 2010
Weight loss is a gradual process Dr. Policastro was the author of last week’s column titled “You don’t always have to be on the front lines to experience war.” His name was inadvertently omitted.
By Dr. Anthony Policastro Everybody knows that it is easier to gain weight than to lose it and there is a very logical reason for this. The average person needs about 1,800 calories per day which amounts to between 600 and 700 calories per meal. This does not include snacks so it is very easy to reach that amount. A typical meal at a fast food restaurant will provide over 1,000 calories at one meal. If someone wants to lose weight they need to eat fewer calories. However, trying to cut calories down below 600 per meal is difficult. Almost anything you eat will provide about 300 calories. Eating three very light meals of 300 calories will get you down to 900 calories for the entire day. That might include a small bowl of cereal with skim milk for breakfast, a small sandwich for lunch and vegetables and fruit for dinner. It is hard for someone to do that even for one day let alone a longer period of time. On the other hand, suppose someone decides to have a Big Mac and medium fries for a meal which is 820 calories. If they have that many calories three times a day that is almost 900 more that the 1,800 calories they need. Thus it is easy to in-
crease the number of calories without eating a lot more. However, it is very difficult to reduce the number of calories because even eating light builds calories quickly. An alternative way of thinking about dieting looks at days won and days lost. Each day, you should be able to get a feel for whether you are splurging on calories or not. The days that you do are days lost. The days that you do not are days won. The goal is to have more days won than days lost. The thing to remember is that most days won are going to be 1,200 to 1,500 calorie (300 calories below the 1,800) days. This is about the best you can expect on a typical day. Most days lost are going to be about 3,000 calorie (1,200 calories above the 1,800) days. For that reason you need about four wins to each loss. Most people would expect that one over day should equal one under day but it doesn’t work that way. For this reason, weight loss goals need to be measured in months as opposed to days or weeks. Weight loss of a pound a month is 12 pounds a year and 60 pounds over 5 years. We tend to be in such a hurry that if the results are not immediately obvious, we give up. If you have 24 wins and six losses each month, you should be on a good pace. This would be a good record for any sports team. Perhaps the better approach to weight loss is like a sports team, striving for a good record with more wins than losses.
Carper Highlights Medicare Open Enrollment Season and New Medicare Benefits On Monday, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) highlighted the start of Medicare’s open enrollment season and implementation of several Medicare provisions of the Affordable Care Act that will benefit Delaware seniors. Starting this past Monday through December 31, 2010 Medicare beneficiaries can review and change their coverage to find the plan that will work best for them in 2011. Starting in January 2011, Delaware’s 140,000 Medicare beneficiaries will be also able to take advantage of the following provisions as a result of the Affordable Care Act: All 140,000 Medicare enrollees in Delaware will get preventive services, like mammograms and cognitive screenings, to test for symptoms like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and an annual wellness visit without copayments, coinsurance, or deductibles. Seniors who are in the doughnut hole will get a 50 percent discount on brandname drugs and 7 percent discount on generic drugs. Every year after that, the discount will increase until the doughnut hole is filled completely in 2020. “Delawareans have already begun to see many benefits of the health care reform legislation,” said Sen. Carper.
“Medicare beneficiaries can review and change their coverage to find the plan that will work best for them in 2011. Starting January 1, 2011, seniors will benefit from stronger, more comprehensive Medicare services. “Thanks to our health care reform law, seniors will now be able to receive free annual physicals. These yearly physicals will hopefully help improve seniors’ health by detecting and managing diseases early on through free annual preventive screenings, which can be helpful in diagnosing chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. “Early diagnosis of these types of diseases common among Medicare patients can result in better, more cost effective treatment. Seniors with high prescription drug costs will also see their financial burden greatly reduced through a 50 percent discount on prescription drugs in the doughnut hole. “The Medicare open enrollment season is always an important time of year for Delaware seniors to make sure they are getting the best benefits Medicare has to offer. This year seniors should take full advantage of Medicare’s new, potentially life-saving benefits made possible through the Affordable Care Act.”

Laurel football tops Seaford in final game of the season
By Lynn Schofer
Last Friday night’s high school football game seemed like just another everyday game played between two schools with one walking away the victor. By the attendance, it was hard to imagine the game represented the oldest standing rivalry in the state of Delaware spanning over 30 years, a game that used to be played on Thanksgiving Day with an attendance in the thousands. The Laurel Bulldogs and Seaford Blue Jays met for the final game of the 2010 season on the Bulldogs’ turf last Friday night. Laurel’s Chris Jones received the hand-off 26 times rushing for 245 yards and scoring four touchdowns to help the Bulldogs to a 35-22 win over the Blue Jays. In the first quarter, after several first downs, the Bulldogs were in the red zone but after a fumble and recovery to keep the ball, it was fourth and six. The Bulldogs still had the first opportunity to score if they could convert a fourth down from the 10 yard line. Seaford’s defense stopped the run at the line of scrimmage and took over possession with 5:53 to play
in the quarter. Seaford’s season long penalty problems continued in this game and the Blue Jays found themselves with a second and 14. Quarterback Shaquil Turnage’s pass intended for Jason Owens was a little high tipping his fingers and reflecting into the hands of Laurel’s Arnold Mann. Laurel again worked their way into the red zone but faced another fourth down when time expired in the first quarter. Sophomore quarterback Bryce Bristow handed the ball to Jones who ran untouched into the end zone. Adam Black’s kick was good giving the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead. Seaford answered with a touchdown of their own when on a fourth down Raheem Cannon broke tackles and moved the ball to the 25 yard line. Cannon would later run in for the score from the one yard line and Seaford took the lead when Turnage connected with Jason Owens for two points. Laurel responded at 3:46 when Bristow connected on a 16-yard touchdown pass to Dylan Shockley putting the Bulldogs back on top 14-8. Seaford’s next possession Continued on page 29

Seaford High School recently announced that junior Alexis Hawkins is the Athlete of The Month for November. “I am very happy to represent the field hockey team,” Hawkins said. In her nomination of Alexis, coach Alison Venables stated, “Alexis is a dedicated athlete who always gives 150 percent. She has a great attitude and never gives up.” The monthly award is given to the student athlete that shows leadership both on the playing field and off. Hawkins is a scholar athlete enrolled in the Academic Challenge program, a member of student government, secretary of the National Honor Society, member of Key Club and Business Professionals of America. In receiving the award Hawkins said, “I believe sportsmanship is important and the field hockey team is a great example. We made a welcoming sign for the teams, baked them cookies, and showed respect to players, coaches, and officials.” Hawkins shared her feelings on her team, “This year was great, even when we didn’t win; we didn’t put each other down but instead we helped to pick each other up.” Hawkins plans to run indoor track this winter and play soccer in the spring.

Sussex Tech field hockey team returns to semifinals with 4-0 win By Lynn Schofer

The Sussex Tech varsity field hockey team defeated Wilmington Friends, 4-0, last Saturday to advance to semi finals in the state tournament. Sussex Tech forward Abby Atkins scored three goals with the first one at 22:23 on an assist from Maxine Fluharty. The forward and middle line of the Ravens appeared to work like a well oiled machine with their ability to anticipate the pass, fill lanes, and move quickly to the ball. The stick work of Kelsey Doherty set up several scoring chances for the Ravens
and at 14:41 a pass to Fluharty who then fed the ball to Atkins led to the Ravens’ second score. In the second half, Taylor Kieffer drove the ball to the left side of the field which was picked up by Franchesca Delrosario who connected with Atkins for the goal (17:42). Games are not won on offense alone and the Raven defense spoiled several break away plays by Wilmington Friends. Raven goalie Megan Cannon finished the day with eight saves and the defense turned away the seven penalty corners by Continued on page 28
Delmar football team advances to state tourney with win over Raiders By Mike McClure
The Delmar varsity football team, coming off a loss to Laurel, came back strong in last Friday’s regular season finale, defeating Woodbridge, 45-0. With the win, the Wildcats earned the fifth seed in the six-team Division II state tournament. The Raiders opened Friday’s game with the ball on the 37 yard line. Freddie Sample had an 11-yard run, but Woodbridge was eventually forced to punt. Delmar began its opening possession on its own 15. Wildcat quarterback Alex Ellis found De’Vaughn Trader for a 16-yard gain on the option and also completed a nine-yard pass to Devene Spence. Trader gained 16 more yards on a toss from Ellis, but Ellis’ pass on fourth and six from the Raider 34 fell incomplete. Delmar’s defense stepped up on the next Woodbridge possession. Jacob Tauber was among the Wildcats in on a sack of Woodbridge quarterback C.J. Pleasants on third and 13 from the 31, forcing another punt. This time the Delmar offense was able to put together a scoring drive. Trader had a 32-yard run and Cory Mattox capped
the drive with a 19-yard touchdown run. Brady Scott’s extra point made it 7-0 with 29 seconds left in the five quarter. Delmar got the ball back early in the second quarter and went back to work. Ellis ran six yards before tossing the ball to Trader who picked up an additional 49 yards. Tavon Smiley scored from five yards out and Scott added the PAT for a 14-0 Delmar lead with 9:12 remaining in the half. Sample had runs of six and 11 yards on Woodbridge’s next possession. The Raiders advanced the ball to the Delmar 46 before a pass on fourth and seven fell incomplete, giving the ball back to the Wildcats. Delmar’s Keandre Whaley had two runs for 11 yards, Ellis added a 27-yard run, and Trader scored on a 16-yard touchdown run. Scott’s third extra point of the night put the score at 21-0 (3:40). Following a punt by Woodbridge senior Trez’mon Kane, the Wildcats went back to work. Trader rumbled 49 yards on a run and Ellis scored on a 30-yard keeper. Scott put Delmar ahead 28-0 with 47 seconds left.

Trader extended Delmar’s lead with a 47-yard touchdown run with 11:05 left in the third quarter. Scott’s fifth PAT of the night made the score 35-0. Woodbridge started its next possession with the ball on the 30 yard line. Christian Cole had a seven-yard run on third and two from the 38 to move the chains. On third and six from the 49, Sample took a pitch from Pleasants and was met immediately by De’Kevious Helton for a fouryard loss. Woodbridge kept the drive alive when Pleasants completed a 14-yard pass to George Knight. The Delmar defense combined for a sack on fourth and one from
the Delmar 35 to give the ball back to the offense. Helton scampered 60 yards for a touchdown and Kevin Trader completed a two-point pass to Spence following a bad snap on the extra point attempt as Delmar took a 43-0 lead with 2:18 left in the third quarter. The final points came on an intentional grounding call on a pass thrown from the end zone, resulting in a safety and a 45-0 Wildcat win. Trader ran for 238 yards and two touchdowns to pace Delmar while Sample ran for 72 yards for the Raiders. Delmar faces St. Georges Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Caravel High.

Cannon’s biggest save came at 10:53 when Wilmington Friends attack on goal pulled Cannon out but she extended and was able to get a foot on the ball, and with a little help of back up players, the ball was pushed wide away from the goal. Sussex Tech scored one more time with less than two minutes to play when in traf fic, Fluharty flipped the ball into the goal unassisted. The win advances the Ravens to the semifinal round. Coach Nancy Tribbitt said after the game, “I am just very proud of the girls and we can take it game by game.” Tribitt will prepare her team for the next round, “We will continue to work on com munication and transition.” Sussex Tech will take on Henlopen North rival Cape Henlopen on Wednes day.

Seaford’s defense showed some fatigue as it committed a horse collar penalty which put the Bulldogs at the 12 yard line. Laurel stayed with Jones who ran the ball for the touchdown but a bad snap that had to be covered by the holder added just six, but expanded the lead 35-8. In the fourth quarter, Seaford showed some life and spark when Andre Washington ran the ball in from the seven yard line for a Blue Jay score. Laurel’s defense foiled the two point conversion and the score stood at 35-16. Seaford would regain possession when they held the Bulldogs on a fourth down and Washington scored on 15-yard run with 2:37 left in the game. The Blue Jays climbed to within 13, but a final score of 35-22 went into the books advantage Laurel. Jones ran for 245 yards and four touchdowns, Brandon Scott had six carries for 35 yards, and Bristow completed three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. No stats were available for Seaford.

Seaford football continued started at the 20 yard line but a penalty flag and a tackle by the Bulldogs pitted the Blue Jays at the one yard line on third down. Coach Darnell Savage decided it was better to give up a safety then risk excellent field possession for a possible six. On the snap the receiver allowed the ball to go out of bounds and Laurel took a 16-8 lead. The strategy paid off because with less than two minutes to play Chris Jones coughed up the ball on the 18 yard line and Seaford recovered and held possession to end the half. The third quarter was dominated entirely by the Bulldogs and proved to be the deciding factor of the game. On the first possession, Seaford was quickly faced with a fourth down and eight when Laurel’s blitz got to Turnage, giving the ball to Laurel at midfield. Jones became unstoppable and ran for a first down and then at 5:19 finished the last seven yards with a touchdown. Seaford blocked the kick, but Laurel had the 22-8 advantage. Seaford, unable to convert a first down, punted the ball and Laurel took possession at the 48 yard line. Two

Crude oil continued to flirt with the $90 a barrel mark last week and gas prices, as they typically do, followed suit with slight increases throughout the week. Will this trend continue with less than two weeks to go until the Thanksgiving holiday? The national average price of regular grade gasoline was $2.88 Friday, up 6 cents from last week, 8 cents this month and 23 cents above year-ago prices. Crude Oil Prices Rising in eight of the last 10 sessions, crude oil continued its push toward the $90 a barrel mark last week. Although the U.S. dollar remains weak and continues to be the main contributor to crude oil’s recent gains (when the dollar weakens investors are more apt to invest in the commodity, which is traded in U.S.
dollars), crude oil dropped more than $3 at one point last Friday triggered by a stronger U.S. dollar and rumors of an interest rate hike in China. A look ahead “Motorists have undoubtedly noticed the recent increase in prices at the pump,” said Jana L. Tidwell, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson. “Crude oil is the single biggest factor in the price of gasoline, so as crude oil continues to push toward $90 a barrel, gas prices will continue to follow suit.” Local pricing On Tuesday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.819 to $2.959 a gallon. The low is eight cents higher than a week ago and the high is six cents more.

People Karen Johnson recognized by veterans By Lynn R. Parks
Karen Johnson, director of the Bridgeville Public Library, was recently recognized by four veterans associations. She was presented with a statue of an eagle fitted with emblems representing the Delaware department of the American Veterans Association, the American Veterans post 1694 in Seaford, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Seaford and the American Legion post in Seaford. The presentation was made in the library by Albert Weir, who lives in Seaford and who is a member of the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs and of the American Veterans post 1694. Johnson was recognized because of her library’s donation of books for the library at the Delaware Veterans Home. The home, near Milford, is for veterans, men as well as women, who are elderly or disabled. Bill Peterson, who was named director of the state-owned veterans home in March, approached the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs in October for help in stocking its library. When Weir learned that the Bridgeville Public Library was holding a book sale, he talked to Johnson about donating some of the books to the home. In what Weir called a “patriotic and unselfish act,” Johnson agreed to donate

more than 500 books to the veterans home library. “The books were good quality, and enough to satisfy the need there,” Weir said. Now, the people who live in the Delaware Veterans Home have a good library to turn to, he added.

American Legion dedicates two new monuments
Online auction part of Del Tech Fashion Show fundraiser
Even before the fashion show takes the stage at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus, the public has an opportunity to participate in the event. The Couture & Class fashion is offering an online auction which, as the show does, helps to fund international scholarships. The date of the annual show is Saturday, Nov. 20, with the online auction site open for bids until Nov. 18. Visit the fashion show’s website at www.dtcc.edu/fashionshow to view an eclectic selection of 33 bid items. Travel items include trips to Cancun, Florida and Spain. Consider a short getaway to Dewey Beach or Washington, D.C. or bid on trips to Coronado Bay, California or the Rocky Mountains. If you have an adventurous spirit, consider one of these unique experiences: soar freely in a world-class glider or fly a military jet. If land travel is your preference, enjoy driving six luxury exotic cars. You can also experience a vineyard or brewery tour, lacrosse game at Johns Hopkins University, spa services, or a professional cooking class. Fine jewelry, personal services — including wardrobe/closet reorganization – a laptop, food and gourmet items, fitness and dining opportunities complete the bid selection. Fashion show attendees will also have an opportunity to bid on those items during the event as well as other silent and live auction items. Sponsored by the Owens Campus Development Council, the show features men’s and women’s clothing in the categories of casual, business, holiday and resort wear from Carltons, Pineapple Princess, Rose Garden, Sole, Liquid, Clothes 2 You, all in Rehoboth; Deanna’s, Tiger Lili and Twila Farrell, all in Lewes; Coolspring Cottage in Milton; and Nicole J. Designs in Middletown. Attendees will be able to purchase clothing and store items at the show’s shopping bazaar with 15 percent of those sales being donated to the scholarships. Bazaar participants include Coolspring Cottage, Tiger Lili, Pineapple Princess, The Olive Branch, Bay Moon Design, Angels in Air, Shell Affair, FolksyArt, Mary Kay, Josephine’s Daughter, Joanne DeFiore, Books R Fun and Amway Skin Care. Tickets for the Couture & Class fashion show and luncheon are $35 per person and $225 for a table for eight. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the website or call 855-1659.
I am the subject of Mr. Diehls’s Veterans Day article in your newspaper. I want to thank you and him for the wonderful story. I did the article because I hoped it would spur some others into helping provide for our veterans and our children and youth. Thanks so much. My son, however, is not currently serving in the military. He is a proud veteran and a member of American Legion Post 28. -- Tina Washington
American Legion Nanticoke Post 6 dedicated two new veteran’s monuments on Veteran’s Day. The new monuments are part of a general renovation by Nanticoke Post 6 around the outside of the historic Log Cabin post home. Future plans include an expanded kitchen and offices.
The first monument is to honor all those who have served, and will be a regular part of Post 6’s Veteran’s Day ceremonies.
Post 6’s bugler, Charles Michael, played Taps as part of the dedication. The second monument is to honor those who have died in service to America in our Armed Forces. This monument will be the focal point of Memorial Day services at the Post in the future.
National Vice Commander Eugene Pytka and Delaware American Legion Commander Ed Feeley visited the Post.
Post 6 Commander Robert Michael, assisted by Post Chaplain Charles Singman, dedicated the plaques.
BlockWatch clean up
Seaford Block Watch had its annual street clean up on Saturday, Oct. 30. Volunteers met at City Hall. Trash was picked up on every street from the Nanticoke River to Stein Hwy. and Fred Douglass School to Cedar Avenue. Those helping to improve the neighborhood are, left to right, George Logan, Grace Peterson, Beverly Peters, John Botdorf, Doris Lowe, Kitti Botdorf, Dolores Slatcher, J.J. Sobers, Travis Sewell, Errol Sobers and Pat Jones. Those not pictured who also helped are Charles Anderson, Robert Hudson, Kerrigan Dashiell and Jocquon Johnson. Thanks to everyone. Submitted photo

LEGALS PUBLIC HEARING

Police Journal Police probing robberies
On Nov. 15 at 10:55 p.m., Seaford Police responded to a robbery at the Quality Inn on Sussex Highway in Seaford. Officers determined that the defendant, Kristen A. Shockley, 20, of Pocomoke City, Md. and suspects, Gianfranco Minello, Shockley 28, of Milford and Randy T. Rickards, 30, homeless, followed the victims - a 27-year-old man of Sanford, N.C., a 23-year-old man of Baltimore, Md. and a 30-year-old man of Houston, Texas - from the Royal Farms to the Quality Inn where they entered the victim’s Minello room displaying a firearm. The subjects obtained an undisclosed amount of money and fled. The victims were able to detain Shockley until police arrived. Detectives were also able to identify the two suspects Rickards and the suspect vehicle, a dark colored Ford Focus with temporary Delaware registration, XC265504. Shockley was transported to the Seaford Police Department for further processing and arraigned at the Justice of the Peace Court #3 in Georgetown. She was committed to the Department of Corrections in lieu of $32,500 secured bond pending a preliminary hearing in the Court of Common Pleas. Charges include first degree robbery, conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia. Warrants are on file for the two suspects, Minello and Rickards.

conspiracy, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a deadly weapon by person prohibited. Charges for Rickards include first degree robbery and conspiracy.

As the victim complied, one suspect who was displaying an unknown long gun, struck the victim in the face causing a minor laceration. Charges for Minello for this crime include attempted robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, assault, possession of a deadly weapon by person prohibited and conspiracy. Anyone with information is asked to contact Seaford Police at 629-6644 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or online at www.tipsubmit.com.

Police identify cyclist in crash
Delaware State Police have identified the bicyclist killed in the Nov. 8 crash that occurred on Wilson Farm Road north of SR 18 in Bridgeville. The crash occurred when the bicyclist, Gerald F. Crossman, 54, of Seaford, turned into the path of Elna Watt of Seaford who was driving a Dodge Caravan directly behind the victim.

Bridgeville man sentenced
Allan P. Clark, 38, of Bridgeville, was sentenced to 15 years in prison by Chief United States District Judge Gregory M. Sleet for production and possession of child pornography, in violation of federal law. Clark was also sentenced to 5 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. In April, a federal jury convicted Clark of nine counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. During the trial, the

government presented evidence showing that between November 2008 and January 2009, Clark hid a camera cell phone in a bathroom and videotaped a 14-yearold girl undressing and getting into the shower. Clark saved each video file on the cell phone. Clark then would re-enter the bathroom and remove the phone while the child victim showered. Delaware State Police detectives also seized a computer from Clark’s home on Jan. 22, 2009, which revealed that Clark had surfed numerous teenage sex websites between November 2008 and January 2009 – the same time period during which Clark produced the videos charged in the indictment.
Embezzlement from church
On Nov. 9, Delaware State Police arrested John M. Duckworth, 56, of Milton, on 20 charges related to theft from a church fund. Delaware State Police was contacted by Bethel United Methodist Church in Lewes about large sums of money missing from the church bank account. Police learned that Duckworth was employed by the church as an accountant. Duckworth, who also owns his own private accounting company, is alleged to have written out checks to himself which belong to the Bethel United Methodist Church from December 2007 through July 2010. Police were able to trace 20 checks written out by Duckworth to himself amounting to over $32,000. Duckworth, who is paid for his bookkeeping and accounting services, wrote checks for $699 up to $2,400. Duckworth was charged with two counts of theft and then released on $14,500 unsecured bond. Because Duckworth owns his own accounting business, police believe there could be additional victims. Victims are urged to contact Delaware State Police Troop 4 Fraud Unit, Georgetown. Call ahead to make an appointment with a fraud investigator. Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to call investigators at 856-5850, ext. 257 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
Youth dies in crash
Delaware State Police responded to a reported serious motor vehicle crash on Minos Conaway Road (CR 265) just west of Coastal Highway, Lewes, on Thursday, Nov. 11, at 8:50 a.m. A 2010 Nissan Versa was westbound on Minos Conaway Road west of Lewes when the operator, Christopher J. Smail, 18, of Lewes, traveled off the north edge of the roadway. The Nissan then traveled back onto the main portion of the roadway then appeared to once again veer immediately to the right exiting the north edge of the roadway. Once Smail’s vehicle exited the roadway, it became airborne and rolled over before striking two trees. Smail, who was a student at Delaware Tech in Georgetown, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police are continuing their investigation into the crash. Smail was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Copper theft suspect
On Nov. 10 at 11:53 p.m., Delaware State Police received a 911 call from a concerned citizen regarding suspicious activity at a residence on Gravel Hill Road, Milton. The citizen observed a vehicle stop on Gravel Hill Road then back up into a private driveway and thought it was suspicious because the residence was bank owned. The citizen also reported the vehicle turned off its lights as it was backing down the driveway. Troopers first checked the exterior of the residence, located a rear door which had been forcibly opened and could hear loud bangs coming from the basement. The trooper waited for additional units to arrive and, after entering the residence, located Nicholas W. Bongiovanni, 30, of Georgetown, bent over a large pile of copper piping. Bongiovanni was found to be in possession of a flashlight, a cutting tool, razor knife and gloves. Delaware State Police discovered Bongiovanni had cut copper piping from multiple areas of the basement. Bongiovanni was also found to be in possession of two, 30mg Oxycodone tablets for which he did not have a prescription.

symptoms and look forward to their passing. But this most recent cold brought with it a new symptom, one that I was not expecting and that I hope never comes calling again: When, on the third day of my trial, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I looked just like my Uncle Bill. Not that my father’s brother William, who has been dead for 15 years or so, was a bad looking man. And not that I haven’t realized over the last several years that genetics triumph every time. But that was quite a shock, to look into the mirror, expecting to see the same old face that has greeted me for decades, and instead see the face of a man whom I’ve always thought of as old. I went straight for my lip gloss, “Kissyfit.” I brushed on some rouge. And for the rest of the day, I avoided the mirror. Seeing Uncle Bill in my reflection was bad enough. But seeing him wearing makeup would have been too much. Six days after they started, my cold symptoms are pretty much gone. I still suck on the occasional cough drop and I keep my nose spray handy, but I’m feeling, and looking, like my old self. I even resumed my regular two-mile walks this morning. I can tell you, though, that I’m not looking forward to that next cold. No matter when it strikes, I’ll be older than I am now. And if I looked like Uncle Bill this time, who will creep into my mirror the next time? His parents, my grandparents? Or one of those ancestors whom I know only through pictures? My father’s great Aunt Lizzie, perhaps, or Uncle Frank, of
whom I think I have two and can never remember how they fit into the family tree. This Thanksgiving, along with good health, I’m going to express my gratitude for shiny pink lip gloss. For good-looking ancestors. And for my new favorite mirror, an antique that belonged to my Aunt Lib, Uncle Bill’s sister, and that in old age offers a darker reflection than do the other, newer, mirrors in the house. I just checked. And in it, even at the end of a cold, I still look 39.

Add these three cranberry dishes to your holiday feast Of all the foods we’d expect to find on the traditional family table Thanksgiving Day, there are two that were in this country before the Pilgrims landed — turkeys and cranberries. If you’re comparing these two allAmericans pound for pound, the tiny cranberry is the real heavyweight. The Pilgrims found that Native Americans were not only eating cranberries but also using them for dyeing clothing and making medicine. The colonists were quick learners and soon came to rely on cranberries for much needed vitamin C, which was especially important to the whalers who spent so much time at sea. This tough little fruit can keep its nutritional value and good looks for 6 to 8 weeks in the refrigerator if left unwashed. This isn’t surprising when you consider that the vines they came from can survive the most extreme conditions — some on Cape Cod are still producing after 150 years! Why not give the cranberry a starring role in your Thanksgiving menu? For a different take on the usual canned jelly try one of these delicious recipes.

Cook for 10 minutes, then drain and set aside. Peel, core and quarter the apple. Cut into 1/2-inch dice and place in a saucepan. Sort the cranberries, discarding any soft ones. Add to the apples along with the orange juice, orange rind, sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to low and cover the pan partially. Simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, the apple is tender and the cranberries have burst, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the cranberry sauce to a heatproof bowl and let cool for 1 hour before serving. Or cover and refrigerate; bring to room temperature before serving.

Founded in the mid-1980’s by an ad hoc group of singers intent upon bringing a Messiah singalong to Sussex County, a small group of dedicated volunteers has evolved into an 80-voice choir that performs throughout southern Delaware and beyond. Under Conductor John Ranney, a founding member of the organization, SDCS has expanded its programming from a purely classical repertoire to one that includes the Broadway, patriotic, folk and gospel genres. An increasingly important part of the group’s mission is its educational outreach, aimed at high school and college singers. For 10 years, the SDCS has sponsored a student scholarship program aimed at involving and training talented area high school students in choral singing. In the past year it has begun a partnership with Delaware Technical and Community College that offers students and staff the opportunity to train and perform with Del Notes, a campus choral group also under the direction of Conductor Ranney. In honor of this banner year, the SDCS will establish an en-
dowment fund. Monies from this investment will be dedicated to continuing the student outreach initiative and guaranteeing the perpetuation of the art of choral music in southern Delaware for years to come. To jump start the endowment, a high-end raffle will be conducted at each of the concert venues throughout the season, with the drawing to be held following the spring concert on April 9, 2011, in Rehoboth Beach. Area supporters have contributed gift certificates to restaurants, shops, salons, performances and sports venues. For a full listing of raffle items and to preview the season, visit www.southerndelawrechoralsociety.org. Further recognition has been accorded the Society by the State of Delaware and the Sussex County Council, both of which have issued proclamations recognizing the Choral Society in this, its banner year. The public is invited to join the celebration by attending either of the two Christmas concerts, participating in the sing-along portions, and taking a chance at the raffle tables. Tickets for the Dec. 11 and 12 concerts are available at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth, Puzzles in Lewes, from members, or by calling 645-2013.

The bathtub was the equivalent of a swimming pool to us young’uns. When I was about three or four-years-old I suppose the outside #10 wash tub was pretty nice. However, the older I got the smaller the tub became. By the time I was 10, it was all I could do to keep my legs and knees inside the tub. I had to become a contortionist to take a bath. I think I said before that out of us three kids, I was always the last to get in the wash tub. Mom had to heat the bath water on the stove in the kitchen and walk it out pot by pot to fill the tub. There was no way she was going to even consider drawing more than one wash tub filled with water. She even threw our dirty clothes in with us and did the laundry while we took our bath. She was a pioneer in the water conservation effort. So, one by one we got into the water. When my youngest brother got in you could see the bottom of the tub. By the time my older brother had gotten in and out of the bath water it was a milky gray and there was enough sand on the bottom of the tub to raise crawdads. I recall soaking in the tub feeling like I was sitting on sandpaper. The new indoor tub had its own running water. We could actually get fresh water for each bath. It was the first time I could remember being able to dunk my head underwater without having to recall with horror that my brothers had been in the tub just minutes earlier.
It seems funny now, but indoor plumbing was a major event in our household. It marked the first time that we had running hot water in the house and brought about the end of the traditional toting of the slop jar from upstairs outside to the outhouse. In my young mind I was sure there was no way life could get any better. I figured that if we could get an indoor commode and wash tub, the sky was the limit. Before you knew it I felt confident about dreaming that it would actually be possible for the Windsors to enjoy such luxurious amenities as air conditioning and cable television. Yes, at 10 years of age I realized that we had truly arrived!
Cain wins scholarship
The American Legion National Committee on Education recently selected 10 students for the 2010 Samsung American Legion Scholarship. One of those 10 students was Seaford High Schools’ Molly Cain.

The Seaford Christmas Parade is right around the corner! We are excited about all of the people and groups that have signed up to be in the parade. If you have not sent in your entry form, be sure to send it in as soon as you can. You can go to www. mychristmasparade.com to sign up online. You can also pick up entry forms at Seaford City Hall, as well as Fantasy Beauty Salon on High Street. There are quite a variety of entries that have been received.

Please note that this year the rain date is also at night. The rain date is Sunday, Dec. 5, at 7 p.m. It’s not too late to sign up for the parade. One of Santa’s helpers has told us that Santa is excited, and can’t wait until parade day. See you at the parade! Frank Raskauskas
A wonderful documentary
My father and I watched Vanishing Voices at Laurel Wesleyan on Nov. 13. What a wonderful documentary! We enjoyed it so much. My grandfather was drafted near the end of World War II, and was stationed in New Jersey processing returning vets. I don’t remember him talking about it very much. Thank you! Everyone in Delaware should see this film, particularly the kids. It is a wonderful representation of our greatest generation. Kelly Knowles Griffith
Lack of help hurts party, candidates
I watched with great interest the election process and results from this year’s election. It was clear to me that the Republican party of Delaware has clear moderate or left leanings in their politics. They did not win, so they pouted and took their toys and were silent. The Republican chosen ones were Mike Castle for Senate and Michelle Rollins for Representative, both not conservative minded. When the results of the primary

came in and their chosen people were defeated, it was not met by any type of celebration. In fact, I believe the party, despite some small talk about support for the winners, failed to materialize with 100% endorsements or work for O’Donnell and Urquhart. This even extended to the treasurer’s race where Colin Bonini, a conservative, failed to receive 100% endorsements from the “leaders” of the party. All three candidates lost. This lack of effort from the top leaves those who do the work at the polls, feeling disowned; like, what are we doing this for? It also leaves the candidates to work alone without the full resources of the party and shows a lack of unity within the party. It is time we took the Republican party back from those elites who think it is their party to own like some toy. Without standing for anything, we have fallen for an unwholesome and different direction for our country and state. Shame on them! They need to be voted out as well. John Poe Bridgeville

First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” This amendment, the first, was to assure the people there would be no state religion as in England where they left to worship freely here in America. How did we ever descend to what we have now? One step at a time. I remember reading some years ago of a Supreme Court Justice named Hugo Black who was put on the Supreme Court as a favor from Roosevelt for his support of the “new deal.” He called himself the “Clay County Hillbilly.” He came up with

the term “Separation of Church and State.” How the church bought it, I’ll never know. Over time it has been stretched and distorted to where it is meaningless as originated. Our schools and many others make decisions that have no relation to the first amendment as written. This is where apathy and indifference puts us. And the A.C.L.U. thrives. Stand up for your rights.

This is a letter to show appreciation to teachers, support professionals, and substitute educators. November 15-19 marks the 89th annual observance of American Education Week by the American Legion Auxiliary, a time for saluting our public schools and the relationships between all school employees, students and parents. Today’s teachers do more than teach basic skills. They nurture and inspire children despite obstacles. They help students learn essential skills not always measured in testing, such as critical thinking, conflict resolution, cooperation, and problem solving, which help students throughout life. November 18 marks the observance of Education Support Professionals Day, a time for saluting our public school education support professionals (ESPs) and the contribution they make to education. The ESPs of today serve as positive role models as well as helping in many other capacities. November 19 marks the observance of Substitute Educators Day. These employees are called in to temporarily replace a regularly employed teacher or education support professional. Substitute work is not without challenges and substitute educators rise to those challenges. A simple “thank you” for these hard working professionals would be welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading this letter.

Also, we want to thank our keynote speaker Arthur Doakes, for delivering a spiritually uplifting message that resonated with our passion to become accomplished Christian writers.

MORNING STAR • NOVEMBER 18 - 24, 2010
The recent election was the most decisive transfer of power in the House of Representatives in the past 70 years. The Republicans gained at least 60 seats in the House of Representatives and six senators. Republicans managed to avoid another two years facing a filibuster-proof Democratic majority. Delaware proved to be the true blue state that many expected. Both Christine O’Donnell and Glen Urquhart lost badly; however, Ann Coulter observed that Republican victors should send thank you notes to Christine and Sharron Angle, who lost to Harry Reid. They absorbed the smear tactics of the left, leaving many other Republicans untouched and victorious. In the House where the Democrats took a drubbing, Republicans swept the upper Midwest and South, and made significant gains elsewhere. Just before the election, Obama proclaimed that Nancy Pelosi was one of the greatest Speakers of the House in history. The president believes that she ranks right up there with Sam Rayburn and Tip O’Neill, who were known for achieving bipartisanship. She has nothing in common with the 19th century giant, Henry Clay, “The Great Compromiser.” Apparently, the president slept through his American History classes. The future looks bright for the Republican Party if they take the voters seriously and listen to them. However, it will not be easy. Entrenched politicians and Washington politics may get in the way. Former Republican Majority Leader Trent Lott was quoted in an interview with the Washington Post last July: “As soon as the Tea Party candidates get here, we need to co-opt them.” He suggested that newly elected members of Congress not bring their staff. Washington insiders would staff their offices with “people who knew their way around,” which translates to more of the same. Senator Lott, you missed the point. Voters will not allow our new congressmen to be co-opted by the likes of you. This is not about power. It is about individual freedom and principles. If the new class performs like the old ones, they, too, will be replaced. The two years leading up to the election of 2012 will be interesting. Delaware
