Veterinarian who lost wife faces deportation Dr. Dykstra was told he had until October 23 to take care of his wife’s estate and get out of the country By Lynn R. Parks Dr. John Dykstra said that he feels like Job. Less than two months after the death of his wife, the Seaford resident and veterinarian is facing deportation to his native Canada. “All these things are happening right now,” he said. “I am thinking a lot about Job and all the things that he had taken away from him.” Dykstra, 41, is asking for the community’s help in convincing the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to allow him to stay in Delaware. He needs as many letters of endorsement as possible to include in his application for resident alien status, due by October 21. “I was really impressed by the community after my wife died,” he said. “Now I am asking for a little more help from the community.” “John is a professional and an asset to our area,” said Ron Breeding, Seaford, who is helping Dykstra collect letters of

endorsement. “And he is a person who is a dear friend. I want to help him.” Dykstra’s wife, Sandra, a U.S. citizen and also a veterinarian, was killed Aug. 13 while jogging near their home on Delaware 20, east of Seaford. According to state police, she was struck by a sport utility vehicle being driven by Georgetown police officer Bradley Cordrey. Cordrey, who was off-duty at the time, was charged Aug. 23 with operation of a motor vehicle causing death of another person. (See related story on page 43.) Dykstra took his wife’s body to Canada to bury her in a family plot. Three weeks later, he was notified that an application for legal resident status, or for a “green card,” that had been pending with the INS for eight years was denied because the petitioner, his wife, was dead. He was told he had until October 23 to “take care of her estate and get out of the country,” he said. Dykstra admits that part of the problem is that for about 190 days in 1997 and 1998, he was working in this country without proper authorization. “I had planned on applying for a green card but failed to, due to circumstances,” he said. “I was working hard, with a lot of clients depending on me, and I didn’t have time to go back across the border to do the paperwork.” Dykstra said that in retrospect, he understands that he should have taken the time to make sure his residency here was

legal. “I broke immigration law. I admit that,” he said. “But it was not intentional at all. I didn’t realize that the Canadian-U.S. border was such a stringent border. No one thought that. I thought people were more free to come and go.” Dykstra came to the United States in 1993 under the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, which allowed professionals to come across the border to work for other professionals. He was employed with a veterinarian clinic in Chestertown for two years, then in 1995, he started working for himself, something not allowed under the NAFTA provision. He should have applied for his green card then, he said. In 1998, after having to appeal to then Sen. William Roth to be allowed back into this country following a vacation in Canada, he applied for legal resident status. That application has been pending since then. “I feel they really wanted to approve my application, but they couldn’t figure out a legal way to do it,” he said. “I had broken immigration law.” Now, his new application to the INS is based on several points, he said. “First, I have to prove to the INS that I didn’t intentionally break the law,” he said. “It wasn’t intentional. I was young and I had all these bills to pay and I didn’t have time to take away from my clients.” Secondly, he is making the point that his children, ages 9, 5 and 3, need to stay in the home they have always known so they can heal after the death of their mother. “Our kids need to stay here for their mental health,” he said. Dykstra also wants to stay here so that he can continue the veterinarian practice that his wife started. She owned and operated the Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital, Laurel, which she opened in February 2004. “My wife’s business is her legacy in this community,” he said. “Maintaining that as a viable business and as a place for our 18 employees is a way to keep her memory alive.” Finally, he wants the INS to understand that he is an asset to the area. “I am not a drain on the community,” he said. “I am benefiting the community.” Breeding, whose family raises cattle, agrees. “There is no other veterinarian in Sussex County who will take care of cows, goats, any large animal other than horses,” he said. “This whole thing just isn’t right.” Dykstra admitted that asking the community for assistance is not easy for him. “I prefer to keep things to myself,” he said. But he has come to understand, as he didn’t before, the respect people in the area have for his wife. “I am amazed that one life could have that much effect on a community,” he said. “The best place for us after her death is here. I just need to convince the INS that that’s the case.” For your information: Letters in support of John Dykstra can be sent to his attorney, Wendy Castor Hess. Letter writers should explain how they know Dykstra and how deportation would affect him and his children. Letters can be sent by mail to Goldblum and Hess, 101 Greenwood Ave., Suite 380, Jenkintown, Pa., 19046; by fax to (215) 8854595; or by e-mail to HYPERLINK ""

Two buildings in downtown Seaford have new owners By Lynn R. Parks Two buildings in downtown Seaford, one the former home to Givens Flowers and the other most recently occupied by the Riverview day-care center, have new owners.

Ferris Homes, LLC is owned by husband and wife, Mike and Christina Ferris, with Mike’s brother Eric at the helm of the Seachase at Greenwood project. According to Mike Ferris, “We wanted to create a condominium setting that people would be excited about and proud to come home to.

Christina Ferris says, “It makes me feel good to know that we are able to offer such a nice place to live at such affordable prices. This approach to housing is also the reason why we have been so successful in Wilmington, too.”

By Lynn R. Parks Starting next year, the city of Seaford will be using the same building code that the county uses. The city council Tuesday night voted to approve use of the International Building Code effective Jan. 1, 2007.

City building official Mike Mulvaney told the council that adoption of the code will make it easier for contractors who do work in the City of Seaford as well as in the county. The city was using the 1997 Standard Building Code, which Mulvaney said is obsolete.

Business Conference to discuss job creation, small business By Judi Sciple For 13 years, the Sussex County Today & Tomorrow Conference has served as a forum for discussing topics important to the economic vitality and future of the county. County business, education and government leaders and residents serve on the planning team that collaborates to present this annual event, which always attracts a full crowd. This year’s conference, scheduled for Oct. 25, will focus on job creation and the roles of entrepreneurship and small businesses in county and state economic development efforts. Providing an environment that encourages and supports entrepreneurship in Sussex County is the foundation of the conference theme – Sussex County Jobs: Growing Our Opportunities. Area characteristics, population demographics and environmental trends are key factors to consider when creating or expanding a business. Recognizing and embracing the opportunities associated with these trends often can be the catalyst needed to successfully launch a new enterprise. As part of the conference agenda, five “opportunity areas” for job creation in the county will be identified and explored. Successful business owners representing each of these opportunity areas will serve as panelists; they will discuss lessons learned as well as plans for their businesses. The five opportunity areas for job creation are: Recognizing the impact of hospitality and tourism. Sussex County’s numerous beaches and waterways, combined with a fairly moderate climate and high quality of life, has positioned the county as a primary tourist destination and desirable retirement community. To maintain the appeal, entertainment, services and activities that cater to these markets must continue to emerge, resulting in new businesses such as golf courses, restaurants, special events and spas. Embracing retiree expertise. Projections

from the Delaware Department of Labor indicate that over the next 20 years, the largest increase in population in Sussex County will be in people age 55 or older, representing more than 44,000 individuals. Many of these retirees possess the knowledge, experience and resources for new enterprise creation, and they see starting or supporting a business in Sussex as a desirable way to ease into this new phase of their lives. Integrating technology with tranquility. Technology has changed the way we do business and created a global economic environment. Today’s companies can conduct business from virtually anywhere in the world, an advancement that creates opportunities for job creation and growth in Sussex County. Employers who take advantage of technology can operate nationally and internationally while living in Sussex, free from the population density problems of urban living. They can enjoy a high quality of life that includes coastal areas, tax free shopping and open space. Promoting innovation in agriculture. Agriculture has long been a part of life in Sussex County and continues to provide a vital and unique foundation for job creation. Specialty markets and new technologies hold promise for business opportunities. Innovators in this field are looking to diversify their businesses and explore alternative agriculture production. Capitalizing on the service based economy. The growth of retirees in Sussex County presents an increased need for businesses that provide residential and professional services such as financial and legal advice, home health care, and residential/community maintenance. Many job opportunities exist in these areas, not only for new business creation, but for individuals who wish to be selfemployed. In addition to exploring these areas of opportunity for job creation in the county,

4-Hers question families on health habits

Sussex to celebrate career of Robert L. Stickels

The fact that kids like junk food is nothing new. In colonial days, sugar-coated nuts, toffees and marzipan were popular. After the Industrial Revolution, jelly beans and chocolate bars were mass produced. By the beginning of the 20th century, potato chips were, too. But today’s kids, unlike previous generations, are paying a price for their snack habits. About 17 percent of U.S. youth are obese, according to the Institute of Medicine. Another 16.5 percent are on the brink of becoming so. What’s the difference between contemporary kids and their colonial counterparts? Our progeny usually aren’t chopping wood and walking to school — in other words, getting lots of daily exercise. But there’s another significant difference — previous generations of children weren’t bombarded by food advertising. Eleven Sussex adolescents discovered the influence of food marketing during a community mapping project, which was a collaborative effort of Delaware 4-H, the Institute of Medicine and the Academy for Educational Development. This summer, the youth went to parks, playground and community events to survey other children and their parents about their daily diets. The goal was to determine how much advertising and other

Sussex County will bid farewell to retiring County Administrator Robert L. Stickels during a dinner Friday, Oct. 27, at the Ruddertowne Bay Center, 113 Dickinson St., in Dewey Beach. The public is invited to attend this evening of celebration and commemoration of Stickels’ three-decade career in public service. Stickels will officially retire Nov. 1, from the position he has held since 1988. He is the longest-serving County Administrator since Sussex County converted from the old Levy Court system to the current County Council form in the early 1970s. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served beginning at 6 p.m., with diner to follow at 7 p.m. dinner guests have the choices of chicken cordon bleu or prime rib of beef. Tickets for the dinner are $30 per person. Checks should be made payable to “Sussex County Council Escrow Account.” Seating is limited to 400 guests, and reservations are required by the close of business Wednesday, Oct. 18. For more information, or to make reservations, call Nancy Cordrey at 855-7741.

forms of food marketing impacted children’s eating habits. The 12- to 18-year-old youth, who had been specially trained in interviewing techniques, discovered that marketing can have a significant effect on what their peers choose to put in their mouths. Heavily advertised fast foods and packaged snacks were cited as frequent food choices. Fruit and vegetables were seldom mentioned as a snacking option. “Today, food marketing to youth is pervasive,” says Joy Sparks, state 4-H program coordinator. “And it’s chips and candy and other junk foods being pushed, not fresh fruit and other healthy choices.” The youth produced a video about their project that drives this point home. Images of Sussex County billboards show quarterpound burgers, thick milk shakes and over-sized pizza slices. Only one billboard advertised a healthy food choice - locally grown watermelon. The five-week project helped 4-H and the Institute of Medicine learn something about the eating habits of Sussex families. But it served an equally important purpose as a youth development project. “These young people learned how to work in teams, how to negotiate, and how to handle rejection when people turned down interview requests,” says Sparks.

“They’ve also been receiving opportunities to develop their public speaking skills.” A number of the participants have made presentations at major events, including an Institute of Medicine forum in Washington, D.C. Several will be speaking at the second annual Nemours Conference on Child Health Promotion in mid-October. The project is just one of Delaware 4H’s collaborative health projects. Another program, at the Woodbridge After School site, uses a curriculum based on the Nemours Foundation’s “5, 2, 1, Almost None” initiative. The slogan refers to desirable daily habits, including five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, no more than two hours of TV or other screen time, at least one hour of exercise and almost no sugarsweetened drinks. The curriculum is fun for the kids, says Sparks, and it works. “The children are exercising and making healthier choices,” she says. “And many of them have lost weight.” A secondary benefit is that the 4-Hers are bringing this information home. “The Woodbridge families are telling us that they’re spending more time together, exercising and having fun,” says Sparks. “Everyone in the family is adopting healthier habits.”

Also October is breast cancer awareness month and the Postal Service supports this very worthwhile cause. The Post Office sells special Breast Cancer stamps for 45 cents and from the sale of this stamp 6 cents is donated to breast cancer research. These stamps along with other merchandise will be on sale. Little Miss Apple-Scrapple The first-ever Little Miss Apple-Scrapple will be crowned on Thursday, Oct. 12. The Pageant will begin at 7 p.m. in the Woodbridge High School auditorium. Eight contestants will compete in talent, interview, and party dress categories. Tickets for the Pageant may be purchased at the door for $2 each. All proceeds will benefit the Apple-Scrapple Festival scholarship fund.

From carving scrapple into a piece of art to racing tractors, the 15th Annual Apple-Srapple Festival in Bridgeville offers fun, food and entertainment for everyone.

History of the event The Apple-Scrapple Festival was designed as a way to highlight two items that have put Bridgeville on the map. The apple part of Apple Scrapple will be featured at T. S. Smith and Sons’ packing house just north of town. The 800-acre T. S. Smith and Sons farm and orchard is Delaware’s oldest surviving commercial

apple orchard. The packing house will have baskets of apples for sale, as well as cider, apple butter, applesauce and apple doughnuts and cakes. As for scrapple, the Ralph and Paul Adams plant at Market Street and Railroad Avenue has been turning out blocks of Rapa scrapple since 1926, when it was founded by brothers Ralph and Paul

Adams; they derived the name for their scrapple from their names. Now owned by the Jones Dairy Farm based in Fort Atkinson, Wis., the plant also makes Habbersett, Greensboro and Jones Dairy scrapple. In addition to the Bridgeville Senior Center, Rapa donates scrapple to the Woodbridge High School Band Boosters scrapple sandwich booth as well as for the

festival’s annual scrapple carving contest. In its first year, the Apple-Scrapple Festival attracted about 2,500 visitors. Last year rains hurt attendance. In 2004, the year before the rains came, about 30,000 people attended the event. A full schedule of events appeared in last week’s Star newspapers.

Education Sussex Tech students raise money for Senior Services event For the fourth year, the JROTC cadets at Sussex Tech supported Sussex County Senior Services (CHEER) by collecting thousands of dollars for the annual Beach Day Governor’s Walk. The walk benefits the non-profit organization’s meals-on-wheels program for senior citizens in Sussex County. The cadets collected $6,740.35 for the cause, exceeding their previous efforts. The three-week campaign ended Sept. 15 when 72 cadets from Sussex Tech converged in Rehoboth Beach to participate in the 2.8-mile Governor’s Walk. National Honor Society members at Sussex Tech also collected funds for the Governor’s Walk as well as participated in it. Both SFC Louis Melendez, JROTC co-instructor, and Jean Johnson, Honor Society co-advisor, were proud of their students and the fact that they were willing to participate in the walk on an in-service day. “To see so many kids give up a day off of school to come to Rehoboth and participate in this fund-raiser to help senior citizens says a lot about the character of these young people,” said Melendez. For their efforts, the cadets received trophies from CHEER for most group walkers and most money raised. Cadet Paul Sisson of Georgetown said that he put on his dress JROTC uniform and visited every house in his development to collect $503 for CHEER.

Stamp designed by Laurel girl chosen for U.N. peace series Sierra Spicer, a freshman at Laurel Senior High School, recently received notice that her Lions Club International Peace Poster was selected by the United Nations as one of six postage stamps to commemorate the 2006 International Day of Peace (Sept. 21). Her poster was selected from the 24 merit finalists out of 350,000 world-wide entries. The United Nations General Assembly, in resolution 55/282 of Sept. 7, 2001, decided that beginning in 2002, the International Day of Peace should be observed on Sept. 21 each year. The assembly declared that the day be observed as a day of global ceaseSierra Spicer fire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the day. It invited all member states, organizations of the United Nations system, regional and non-governmental organizations and individuals to commemorate the day in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in establishing a global cease fire. In response to this important resolution, the United Nations Postal Administration decided to commemorate the International Day of Peace by adopting a three-year annual global peace stamp issuance commencing on Sept. 21, 2004. This is the third and final year for the “My Dream for Peace One Day” stamp series. On Sept. 21, 2006, UNPA issued six commemorative stamps. Two of them, for

New orthopedic surgeon opens practice By Lynn R. Parks The young Daniel Yanicko wanted to be a rocket scientist. But then he discovered medicine and the many, precise tools of the orthopedic surgeon, and he was hooked. “I like to help people out and I like to build things,” he said. “I’m a handyman, I could build a house, and building a joint is no different from building with wood.” Yanicko, 50, has been practicing in Seaford for about a month. “Our community has been underserved when it came to orthopedics and the hospital has worked hard for the last three years to find candidates who were experienced and high-quality

providers,” said Tom Brown, Nanticoke Health Services spokesman. “Dr. Yanicko fit the bill.” Yanicko has his temporary headDr. Yanicko quarters in the Nanticoke rehabilitation office at the Mears campus, Herring Run Road. By January, he hopes to have moved into his new office in the Halpern Eye Associates building, now under construction on Bridgeville Highway, within view of Yanicko’s office. Yanicko said that he and his

More than 190 couples receive genetic testing Displaying the importance of parents’ obligations to support their children, over 190 couples across the state visited Child Support Enforcement headquarters recently to receive the free genetic testing being offered. “Our highest obligation as parents is to care for our children,” said Child Support Enforcement Director Chuck Hayward. “And establishing paternity is one crucial step in providing that care.” Paternity establishment is a procedure to determine the legal father of a child born outside of marriage by either a court order or an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity. The husband is considered to be the legal father if the mother was married when the child was born. “The couples that came forward this week are shining examples that all children have the right to support from both parents, and that all children deserve to grow up in a healthy, happy environment,” said Hayward. “ Fathers are important. It’s that simple. Getting fathers to acknowledge their children legally by getting their name on the birth certificate is critical to the physical, emotional, and financial well being of any child. It can’t get more basic than knowing who your parents are,” says Charles E. Hayward, director for the Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE). Increasing awareness about paternity establishment and getting more Delaware kids to know the identity of their parents is a major focus of Child Support Month 2006. How it works If the mother and father were not married at the time the child was born, paternity must be proven before the court will enter an order for support. Proof will

generally consist of an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity (AKA VAP) , scientific genetic testing, direct testimony of the mother, or other available evidence. If both parents agree to sign an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity, the parents do not have to go to court to establish paternity for their child. Why is it important to establish paternity? Both parents and the child have the right to a full parent/child relationship. Everyone deserves an opportunity to develop, enjoy and grow in the relationship. The father has the right to contribute to the success of his child’s future. By establishing paternity, the father is providing his child with certain rights and privileges, which may include: • The emotional benefits of knowing who both parents are • Emotional and financial support from both parents • Access to family medical records • Inheritance protections • Veterans’ and Social Security benefits • Medical and life insurance • Legal documentation of who his parents are To learn more about these new efforts, contact the Division of Child Support, at 1114 S. DuPont Highway, Dover, DE 19901 (302) 739-4578.

QUOTEWORTHY “It is the paradox of life that the way to miss pleasure is to seek it first. The very first condition of lasting happiness is that a life should be full of purpose, aiming at something outside self.” Hugo Black

wife Cynthia were attracted to Seaford by its size, and by the fact that it is growing. “There is a lot going on here but it is still a nice place to be, and there is still land to buy,” he said. He said that he and his wife came to Seaford with retiring here in mind. They also wanted to be close to members of their family who live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Most recently, Yanicko practiced in Lake Charles, La., where he was part of the Lake Charles Medical and Surgical Clinic and medical director of the Center for Joint Replacement at Christus St. Patrick Hospital. But his neighborhood was ravaged by Hurricane Rita, which ripped through the area a little more than a year

ago. “We decided that we didn’t want to live in that area any longer,” he said. Yanicko grew up in Deer Lakes, near Pittsburgh, where he graduated from high school. He went to Allegheny College, Meadville, Pa., where he graduated in 1978 with a bachelor of science degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. He went to Hahnemann University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, and completed his studies there in 1982. While there, he was awarded the orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation prize. He did his internship in general surgery at Hahnemann University Hospital from July 1982 until June 1983 then did his residency training at Hahnemann, Eliza-

bethtown Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, Elizabethtown, Pa., where he studied pediatric orthopedics, and the Atlantic City Medical Center, Atlantic City, N.J., where he studied trauma and sports medicine. From 1987 until 2001, he had a private practice, first in Sharon, Pa., then in Hermitage, Pa. He then moved to Sioux City, Iowa, where he was involved in a group practice for about a year. He went to Lake Charles in 2002. Yanicko is a member of the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery, a fellow with the American Academy of orthopedic Surgeons and with the American College of Surgeons and is a diplomat with the national Board of Medical Examiners.

4-H Teens set example as leaders in community Sussex County 4-H Junior Council is a youth-led organization comprised of 4-H teens and local 4-H club members who hold club officer positions. 4-H teens who are 13 years of age and older are eligible to run for an officer position with Junior Council. It is an honored leadership role. Candidates campaign over the summer and officers are elected by their peers at the beginning of the 4-H year in September. Junior Council officers serve a one year term and democratically preside over meetings at the beginning of each month and address a number of issues. The outcomes of their decisions, which include event planning, community service and recordkeeping, help forge leadership qualities and have a direct influence on others in their community. Embodying a volunteer spirit, 4-H Junior Council members serve as mentors to many youth throughout the county, regardless of whether they belong to 4-H or not. A typical Junior Council teen may volunteer for such events as for Relay for Life, UD Coast Day, Coastal Cleanup and the Apple Scrapple Festival. UD Extension Specialist, Ernie López says, “I really can’t think of a community activity in Sussex County that takes place without some sort of volunteer presence from our kids in 4-H. They are the best and brightest and we are proud of them!” Members serve as volunteer counselors for member overnight camps and summer day camps in Georgetown and Bridgeville which are open to the public. In their leadership role, Junior Council members instruct other youth about the benefits of good nutrition, surveying food choices, and assist in the training of other youth participating in more than 100 project areas offered by 4-H. For four weeks this spring,

many 4-H Junior Council members served as ambassadors for 4H, Delaware and U.S. when they hosted a delegation of Bosnian teens who were visiting the U.S. for the first time. They are an invaluable asset to adult volunteer leaders who run

4-H community and Afterschool clubs in Sussex County and across the state. 4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. For more information about

the 4-H program and its many benefits contact Mary Argo, Susan DeFord or Ernie López at (302) 856-7303 or visit the Sussex County 4-H Web site at Sussex County 4-H is pleased to announce the election results

for the 2006-2007 year: Brian Tinsman, Seaford, president; Tiffany Snyder, Seaford, vice president; Josh Vincent, Laurel, secretary; Rachel Ebling, Seaford, treasurer; Emily Eskridge, Seaford, assistant treasurer; Neil Ebling, Seaford, reporter.

Famie spent time researching Medicare’s new prescription drug plans and is now saving 75% on her medications. There are millions of Americans like her who could benefit significantly from signing up for Medicare Part D, and they don’t even realize it — especially those who are over 65 with limited incomes. You could also be eligible for extra help paying for prescription drugs or medications. To find out if you qualify for extra help, please call 1-800-772-1213.

Take the time to find out if you can save before enrollment ends December 31.

Teen Read Week Area teens will be reading for the fun of it as Seaford District Library celebrates the ninth annual “Teen Read Week” on Oct. 16-20, 2006. They join thousands of other libraries, schools, and bookstores across the country who are encouraging teens to celebrate this year’s theme, “Get Active @ Your Library.” Studies show a regular reading habit increases reading proficiency. One of the most important ways teens acquire the habit is by watching adults they respect. Being around adults who are avid readers can counteract the latest statistics from The Nation’s Report Card (, which indicate that in homes across America the number of different types of reading materials has decreased, and a smaller percentage of 17-year-olds saw adults reading in their homes.

They all go something like this: It’s getting cold outside, days are shorter, come home to your cozy house and make something comforting for your family, etc., etc. According to these articles, there is something especially soothing in making breakfast foods for dinner. Plus, pancakes, waffles, egg and cheese dishes are easy to make, the needed ingredients are usually on hand and the novelty of having these breakfast foods for dinner is appealing to kids and the kid in you. I get the idea, but I just can’t buy into this particular culinary quirk. However, I know there are a lot out there who do. If you like the notion of coming home from work or school on a cold, dark autumn evening, getting into your jammies and eating breakfast, here are a few ideas for you. Swiss Eggs Serves 4-6 1 and 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup cream 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 eggs

The Practical Gourmet Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sprinkle cheese in 11- by 7-inch glass baking dish and dot with butter. In small bowl, combine cream, mustard powder and salt; pour half of mixture into baking dish on top of cheese and butter. In medium bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Pour into baking dish. Drizzle remaining cream mixture over eggs. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until puffed and just beginning to brown. Oven Pancake Serves 2 or 3. This is great with warmed maple syrup, but you could also top it with jelly or powdered sugar. 1/2 cup flour 2 tablespoons sugar Dash salt 1/2 cup milk

Caregiver Expo offers day of learning and sharing The 2nd Annual Delaware Caregiver Expo on Nov. 2 will help family caregivers deal with the challenges of caring for loved ones at home, and feel comfort in knowing they are not alone. In Delaware, 130,000 people — nearly 1 in 4 residents — are serving as caregivers for elderly or disabled relatives. Another 7,200 are caring for their grandchildren. More than half spend an average of 20 hours each week tending to medical needs, nutrition and activities of daily life while also serving as an advocate for their loved ones in communicating with doctors, insurance companies and Medicare. “Family caregivers provide more than 80 percent of all homecare services. They play a vital role in our communities and in our health care system,” said Mona Grier, administrator for CARE Delaware, a program of the Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD). Last year, more than 400 caregivers gathered in Dover for the 1st Delaware Caregiver Expo. The 2nd annual event will be held in Wilmington at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, from noon – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2 (registration opens at 11:30 a.m.), and is expected to draw even greater attendance. The Expo is free and open to the public. It will feature educational seminars, health screenings, exhibits, and product demonstrations, as well as an opportunity to meet other caregivers and share ideas. Attendees will be treated to lunch and dinner buffets, snacks, dessert, coffee and spa treatments. In addition, a new web-based program will be introduced in which caregivers can take a video tour and enroll. “The Caregiver Expo is not only a great source of information and support, it’s also a day of relaxation and rejuvenation. It’s a chance for caregivers to find out about resources that are available, but also to learn how to take care of themselves as they deal with the stress of caregiving,” said Grier. This year’s line-up of speakers includes: Allan Zaback, DSAAPD Director, who will present the Caregiver of the Year Awards (nominations can be sent by email to Larry Mendte, CBS 3 Eyewitness News anchor, who has worked closely with caregivers while spearheading CBS

What is normal aging anyway?” Jack Markell, State Treasurer of Delaware, who will discuss “Financial security tools for caregivers.” William H. Thomas, M.D., AARP’s Visiting Scholar and president of The Center for Growing and Becoming, Inc., a not-for-profit organization that promotes holistic approaches to aging and care for older people. His presentation will address the topic: “Who will care for our caregivers?” Frank L. Miller, a nationally–certified school psychologist from Lake Forest School District, to address “Parenting grandchildren.” Who Should Attend? Everyone is welcome to attend. The event is designed for anyone who is currently serving as a caregiver for an elderly or disabled relative, or a grandchild, as well as anyone who anticipates taking on a caregiving role at in the future. “When you consider that one in four Delawareans are currently serving as caregivers, it is likely that most of us will be providing care to a family member at some point in our lives. The Delaware Caregiver Expo is a wonderful opportunity for caregivers to pamper themselves a bit and seek the help they may need right now, and for others to begin to prepare for the future.” DSAAPD is hosting the second annual Delaware Caregiver Expo 2006 in partnership with Christiana Care Health Systems, AARP Delaware, and Astra Zeneca. DSAAPD is committed to improving or maintaining the quality of life for elderly Delawareans and adults with physical disabilities. The Delaware Caregiver Expo demonstrates their commitment by enhancing the lives of those they serve, and providing support to the caregivers who give so much of themselves.

Pastor Appreciation Month Profile Why I think the Rev. Boyd Etter of St. John’s United Methodist Church, in Seaford, should be Pastor of the Month in Seaford. The Rev. Etter is always there for us 24-7, day or night. He gives us messages that are filled with the Holy Spirit that comes from his heart. Last year, he left his home on Christmas Day to take someone to the hospital who lived alone. When surgery is needed and scheduled, wherever it may be, near or far, any hour of the day or night, he is there. He stops whatever he is doing, when possible, to be there for us. He and Linda, his wife, are very devoted to their ministry. They are truly disciples of Jesus Christ. He has served more than 25 years and served eight churches. He is devoted to small The Rev. Boyd Etter group ministries throughout our church and community. He reaches out especially to missions, Prison Ministry through The Way Home, The Seaford Mission, the homeless on the street, and anyone who is in need of God’s care. He reaches out to those who are total strangers, when called by a friend of that person. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been, or where you are going. He offers Jesus Christ to everyone. This past summer, he and Linda went to The World Methodist Conference in Seoul, Korea. They brought back their experiences, which was wonderful. If any church would like him to share his journey, call the church at 302-629-9466, so that he can make the arrangements. God has surely blessed him with a pastor’s heart and through him has blessed many. Sincerely In Christ, Ruth M. Rhoades, St. John’s UMC

Thanks to Short’s Marine, the Third Annual Rocktober Fishing Tournament and Festival, Oct. 20-22, promises to be the most competitive yet. Any angler who breaks the state record with their Rockfish catch will take home an outfitted boat! The lucky fisherman will speed away with an 18’ center console Parker, complete with an Evinrude e-tech 115 motor and LoadRite trailer. The state record for the Rockfish hasn’t been broken since 1978, when Betty Rosen caught a 51-pound 8-ounce whopper. The fish was weighed in at the Indian River Marina, the headquarters of the Third Annual Rocktober Fishing Tournament and Festival. But with a guaranteed $9,000 payout to the first-place rockfish catch, and over $24,000 in cash prizes, you don’t have to break the state record to win big. This year’s tournament also offers a new challenge to the fishermen with a Tau tog category that awards as high as $4,500 cash for first place. Like last year, participants will also have the chance to fish in a flounder category. For all the younger anglers, there is an added incentive to enter again this year. A $1,000 prize will be awarded to the registered contestant 17 years of age or younger weighing in the heaviest rockfish. The qualifying youth must be currently enrolled in school to win the prize. While the fishermen are casting their lines, there is a weekend full of on-land activities for the entire family. Friday night, the festival portion kicks off at 4 p.m. with treats and frothy beverages for fisherman and their families along with tunes from DJ Sky Brady. Saturday the festival opens at noon, with delicious food and drink, arts and crafts vendors, great music, and children’s activities such as inflatable basketball, ecological touch tanks,

Two Sussex events in Top 100 In September 2006 The American Bus Association (ABA) released its 2007 Top 100 Events in North America. ABA is a trade organization representing the group tour motorcoach industry. Southern Delaware Tourism, the Convention and Visitors Bureau in Sussex County, Del., is a member of ABA and represents the tourism industry in Sussex County. The 2007 Top Events list includes two events in Sussex County. The Nanticoke Indian Powwow, Sussex County’s third largest event according to Southern Delaware Tourism, was recognized for showcasing and preserving Native American heritage and tradition. The “Powwow” which means a secular event, features group singing and dancing by men, women and children. The Powwow’s long history passes from generation to generation, when people gather for celebration and culture. Native American artisans create wares to sell and trade, while visitors enjoy many sights and sounds including the graceful steps of dancers and their traditional regalia, which embody their tribal affiliation and ancestry. Also recognized, The Captain John Smith 2007 Reenactment Voyage of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. In 1608, Captain John Smith sailed the Chesapeake Bay by mapping out its tributary and landmarks. From May through September 2007, a crew of modern-day explorers, historians, naturalist and educators will retrace Smith’s incredible exploration. Traveling in a 28-foot reproduction of Smith’s shallop and living as Smith and his men did 400 years ago, the shallop and her crew will voyage to the headwater of almost every tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. A major traveling exhibit, “Captain John Smith’s Chesapeake Voyages-Mapping the Course for a New Nation,” will meet the shallop and provide an in-depth look at the Chesapeake during the early 17th century to the public. The 121-day voyage begins and ends in Historic Jamestown with more than 20 stops along the Chesapeake Bay in key ports throughout Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. “According to Karen Falk, executive director of Southern Delaware Tourism, “Planning is currently underway for Delaware’s Captain John Smith Reenactment Voyage. The shallop will arrive in Sussex County, Del., May 29, 2007, with a ceremony at Phillip’s Landing near Lau-

rel. Research conducted through National Geographic includes Smith voyage into Delaware up the Nanticoke River with exploration as far north as the mouth of the Broad Creek River. However, event organizers have scheduled for the shallop to travel six-miles further north to host a larger public event which will take place in Seaford, on May 30, 2007 at the Nanticoke River and Yacht Club.” Previous award Top 100 winners include The World Championship Pumpkin Chunkin, U of D Coast Day, and Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce Sea Witch and Fiddlers Convention.

Chicago performance added The musical “Chicago”, opening on October 13 at Possum Hall in Georgetown, has sold out for all originally scheduled performances. Due to the high demand for tickets to this show, the Possum Point Players Executive Committee has elected to add a 7th performance on Wednesday, Oct. 18. “This is a very popular musical right now, and audiences are clamoring for tickets,” stated Possums’ office assistant Cassandra Petersen. “The songs are catchy, the characters vivid, and the storyline is quite modern – especially considering it was written in the ‘70s, and it’s a story about the ‘20s!” “Chicago” portrays a fictional tale taking place in Chicago, in the roaring ‘20s. When Roxie Hart is put in prison for murder, she meets the singer-dancer Velma Kelly. It’s the age of jazz and speakeasies, when murderers meet in the big city. This production has sold out remarkably fast. “Musicals are consistently a big attraction, and Chicago is especially popular,” commented the Executive Administrator of the theater, Mary Cahill. Chicago will be presented October 13, 14, 20 & 21 at 8 p.m., and on October 15 & 22 at 2 p.m. The additional performance will be on October 18 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and can be obtained by calling the Possum Point Players Ticketline at 856-4560. Tickets are $15, or $14 for Seniors or students. Possum Point Players is sponsored in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts.

Suspect awaiting extradition for Internet related solicitation The Delaware State Police High Tech Crimes Unit pursued information obtained from New Mexico investigators, which linked a Dewey Beach man to internet solicitation of children. On September 18 the Delaware State Police High Tech Crimes Unit (HTCU) received information concerning a Delaware resident, Jeffrey M. Campbell, 28, of Dewey Beach, who had been communicating with an undercover officer of the Albuquerque, New Mexico Attorney General’s Office Internet Crimes against Children Task Force, who was posing as a 12-yearold girl. These communications, which occurred in April and May of 2006 had lapsed temporarily but were reestablished in September of 2006 when notification to Delaware State Police was made. State Police Investigators were advised that Campbell was soliciting sex from underage girls. On October 1, 2006 the HTCU pursued investigative measures to establish telephone contact with Campbell to further investigate the requests Campbell had made of the undercover New Mexico Officer. During a telephone conversation with an undercover Delaware Trooper, Campbell again solicited for sex and stated to her that she could come to live with him. A search warrant was obtained for Campbell’s residence located in the first block of Ocean Winds, Dewey Beach, as well as arrest warrants for 7 counts of Sexual Solicitation of a Child. The search warrant was executed on Friday October 6, 2006. During the execution of the search warrant, it was discovered that Campbell was at a relative’s residence in Elkton, Md.

DelDOT says US 13A bridge opening could be this Friday Del. 20 bridge opening expected week of October 23 Reopening of the bridge on US 13A over Morgan Branch between Blades and Laurel is expected to take place this Friday morning, Oct. 13, according to Tina Shockley, DelDOT Community Relations Officer. Reopening of the bridge on Del. 20 over Horse Pen Branch, west of Seaford, is now expected to open the week of October 23, either Monday or Tuesday, Shockley said. The bridges have been out since the June 25, 2006 rain storm that dumped more than 14 inches of rain in some areas in and around Seaford. “Weather has played a big part of delays in opening the bridges,” Shockley said. “The bridges should open on these days, barring any bad weather. Most all of the work is done. Last minute inspections to ensure that the bridge is ready for use are what the focus will be on in these last few days,” Shockley said. The Department appreciates the public’s patience as we work to get the bridges reopened,” Shockley said. On July 24, crews began repairing the bridges on Rt. 13A and Rt. 20 that were washed out by flooding on June 25. In just one month emergency contracts were designed, bid, awarded and work was underway. The bridges each had two contracts, one for the precast culvert and one for the actually bridge reconstruction. The precast culverts were awarded ahead of the construction project to expedite manufacturing, which ensured that the bridges would be repaired at a faster pace. The bid for precast elements for the bridge on Rt. 20 over Horse Pen Branch was awarded to Terre Hill Concrete Products of Terre Hill, Pa., for $128,000. The bridge reconstruction contract was awarded to George and Lynch, Inc. of Dover at a cost of $394,000. The bid for precast elements for the bridge on Rt. 13A over Morgan Branch was awarded to Gillespie Precast of Chestertown, Md., for $57,000. The bridge reconstruction contract was awarded to George and Lynch, Inc. of Dover at a cost of $322,000. In mid-July, the bridge on Route 20 over Chapel Branch, near Penco Corporation and the bridge on Route 20 over Cool

Branch, east of Seaford, both of which were severely damaged, reopened to traffic. As a recap of the Seaford flooding event, more than 30 roads were flooded when a severe storm system dumped nearly 13 inches of rain within a 24-hour period in western areas of Seaford on Sunday, June 25. Initial inspection determined that nearly half the roads were reopened once the rain stopped and the water receded, including the Rt. 13 corridor in this area. However, 12 roads were damaged (primarily areas of Rt. 20 east and west of Seaford) and four bridges washed out due to the floods. DART Bus Route 212 was suspended and Woodbridge High School was opened as a temporary shelter for anyone needing to evacuate their home.

‘Remembering DuPont in Seaford’ “Remembering DuPont in Seaford” is a special celebration that will take place in the Seaford Museum on Sunday, Oct. 22, from 1 to 4 p.m. It will be a great time to reminisce and remember. Announcement of the decision by the DuPont Company to locate its first nylon manufacturing plant in Seaford, Del., was in the Seaford Leader on Oct. 21, 1938. Jack Knowles, former DuPont employee and Seaford Historical Society trustee has organized hundreds of copies of old Threadlines, photographs and various pieces of DuPont Company artifacts for the museum. Anyone who ever worked at the DuPont Nylon plant will relish this opportunity to peruse and review these materials. There is even a scrapbook of memorabilia from the Cavalcade of America that was held here. Threadline issues from 1942 through 1953 had been bound by DuPont. Many singles copies from other years up to 1993 are available. Tables and chairs will be set up in the Webb Room at the Museum for people to sit and enjoy looking at these collections that Knowles has presented to the Seaford Historical Society. Members of the Society may partake of this celebration at no charge. Non-Members will have to pay the usual admission charge of $3 per person. For further information call Jack Knowles at 629-9889.

Blue Jays come from behind to defeat Indian River, 3-2 By Gene Bleile The Seaford soccer team continues to gain experience and wins starting the second month of the Henlopen South season. Last Tuesday night, they notched a come from behind second half victory 3-2 over a stubborn and talented Indian River team. The first half saw a Blue Jay team “that didn’t play up to their potential,” Coach Tim Lee said. “We gave them too much respect.” The Jays were not as aggressive as they have been in recent games in the first half and the Indians took advantage to keep the momentum on their side with numerous shots against the Jays defense.

The Indians got on the board first at about the 12th minute in the first half, when Ethan Davis scored to make it 1-0. It looked like the Indians might score again with intense pressure at midfield, but on a Seaford breakaway on offense, a foul called inside the box gave the Jays a penalty kick and a chance to tie the score. The Jays’ Paul Widerman missed a rare opportunity, when his kick was wide of the goal. However Seaford managed to hang on going into the half, at only 1-0. “I told the boys at half to get their heads out of the sand and play with this team. You can play at their level with no problem,” Lee added. Coming into this Continued on page 48

Bulldogs stall as Woodbridge offense rolls to a 21-7 win Quinones’ three touchdowns spark Blue Raiders By Pat Murphy The Woodbridge Raiders had to wait an extra night to play against the homestanding Laurel Bulldogs because of the rain on Friday, October 6. Coach John Parker of the Raiders, who improved to 23, feels it was well worth it. The Bulldogs fell to 1-4 with the loss. This was a tight defensive game for both teams, although the Raiders did amass 373 total yards against a Bulldog defense that held them to one touchdown until the fourth quarter. The Woodbridge defense, led by Jordan Wescott, was not too shoddy either as they held the Bulldogs to 107 total yards and one late fourth quarter touchdown. Wescott had 10 solo tackles and eight assists for his efforts. Freshman Josh Quinones of the Raiders was the story of the game, however, as he scored three touchdowns on runs of 42, 21, and 51 yards. The first run broke a scoreless game open with only 3:43 left in the second quarter. The Raiders proved to be pesky in the opening drive as they kept the ball for 12 offensive plays before Reuss Idler’s 25yard field goal attempt sailed wide to the right. The Bulldogs had the ball for only six offensive plays in the first quarter as

Vondel Foreman, Alexander Shipley, and the Raider defense completely shut down the Bulldog offense. The second quarter was more of the same as the Bulldogs failed to capture an early break. Esmond Ennis recovered a Woodbridge fumble on their 29 yard line but Tyler Smack, Wescott, Dan Cabrera, and others kept the Bulldogs right there. Only the punting of Laurel’s Taylor Jones kept the Raiders at their 35 yard line. Tackles by Laurel’s Tony Rubino, Jones, and Ennis followed by stops by Trent Passwaters and Josh Kosiorowski stopped the Raiders on their next drive, but on the very first play after another failed offensive series by the Bulldogs, Quinones took the handoff around the right side and raced 42 yards for the first score of the game. Idler’s extra point made it 7-0 and the Raiders took the seven point advantage into the locker room at half-time. The Bulldog offense had the ball for seven plays to open the second half, keyed by Antwon Trimball’s 13-yard pass reception, but the drive stalled and the Raiders took over. The tenacious Laurel defense continued to hold on Woodbridge’s next possession and the following possessions were the same offensive frustration for both teams going into the Continued on page 49

SEAFORD 629-6003 LAUREL 875-4477

On a rainy day and a sloppy field, Seaford’s ongoing problems continued to plague them in a 33-20 loss to Delmar. Both teams had to contend with poor playing conditions, mud and rain, but the Wildcats’ more experienced team scored in each of the first two quarters, then pushed in their final touchdown in the third quarter. Seaford did answer back in the third quarter, when My’keal Purnell broke loose for an 83 yard touchdown run, which was followed by a Kyle Shockley extra point that brought the score to 33-7. In the fourth quarter, Seaford scored two times, both on running plays. First on a 12 yard run by Mark Smith (kick failed) and a five yard run again by Purnell that was capped off by another Shockley extra point. Coach Marc Dickerson was impressed with “the way we fought back in the fourth quarter, we finally were playing against sophomores and juniors,” he said. At that point Delmar had pulled most of their seniors out of the game and maybe Seaford saw a glimpse into the future for this young team. Jeremy Layton and Marquis Leatherbury each scored a pair of touchdowns for the Wildcats. Delmar finished with 396 total yards. The Jays’ My’Keal Purnell ran for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Spencer Coulbourn passed

Jimmy Senatus went down with a knee injury and Patrick Jefferson suffered a concussion. Seaford hosts Lake Forest this Friday in the annual Homecoming game.

Smith turns in season best time at Tidewater Classic By Gene Bleile The Seaford High cross country teams ran in the SSU Tidewater Classic at Winterplace Park last Wednesday in Salisbury. The boys finished with a total score of 230 points, which placed them 7th overall out of 24 teams. The girls’ team scored 405 points and finished 16th out of 25 teams overall. The meet showcased Seaford’s Barrett Smith’s season best time of 18:19 and a finish of 18th place in a field of 219 competitors. Spencer Noel also turned in a fine performance with a new personal record of 20:24 and a 73rd place overall, while teammate Kyle Webber also turned in a season best performance of 20:46, finishing in 88th place. The Lady Jays’ Tyler Smith came in

58th out of a field of 176 runners, with a time of 24:59. Teammates Jeanmarie Ferber, 26:19; Jessica Hill, 27:58; and Andrea Thompson, 33:18 all set personal records.

Seaford soccer continued match, Indian River was 7-0 and was the heavy favorite against a young Blue Jay squad. Lee reminded them of the team slogan, “two goals in 15 minutes,” to start the second half. Widerman answered for the Jays only eight minutes into the second half, when he drilled a rocket from about 25 yards out. “The Jays’ intensity picked up and all of a sudden we knew we could play tough against these guys,” Lee added. Midway in the second half, Trevor Lee scored the Jays’ second goal on a breakaway through the defense and they took a 2-1 lead. Less than two minutes later, Lee scored again on another breakaway and the Jays pushed their lead to 3-1. The Indians weren’t done yet. With

Lee’s bench strength stretched thin, and fresh legs hard to find, the Indian River team gained momentum and pressured Seaford’s defense. “I didn’t substitute my back four defenders at all, but fresh players were hard to come by,” Lee added. At the 68th minute, Charles Cole scored for the Indians and brought it back close at 3-2. The back four, of Zack Long, Michael Zakrewsky, Zachary Schofer and goalie Andrew Halter shut down the Indians and the Jays gave Indian River their first loss of the season. Halter recorded seven saves for the Jays at keeper. On Thursday night, Oct. 5, the Jays pushed their conference win total to 5-0-1 with a win over rival Woodbridge, 5-0. It was the annual game of former Seaford assistant varsity coach, Scott Bleile’s

Abraham Cruz scored first for Seaford, with an assist from teammate Trevor Lee. At the 18th minute, Lee scored and at the 27th minute into the first half Leonel Lopez added the Jays’ third score. To round out the night, Zack Long put one in the net with an assist from Paul Widerman. Lee scored his second goal of the game on an assist from Cruz, near the end



of the game. Woodbridge coach Scott Bleile summed up a night of frustration for his team. “We played well against a very good team. We missed a few opportunities in the first half and should have scored,” he said. “We played tighter defense in the second half, shut down some passing lanes, and fought for the ball, but couldn’t sustain an attack,” he concluded. Seaford moves to 7-1-1 overall and remains unbeaten in the Henlopen South.

BETWEEN THE LINES By Gene Bleile, Seaford Sports

Welcome home Seaford’s Michael Nichols! In my first column six weeks ago, I informed my readers that I had coached and taught physical education and health in the Seaford School District for 27 years. During my career, I estimate I had an influence on over 1,500 different students, many of whom I still see around town on a regular basis, or I keep in touch with them through parental contact. Two weeks ago, I got some of the best news a former teacher, coach and friend could receive about one of those students. Lance Corporal Michael Nichols, son of Dennis and Karen Nichols of Seaford, returned home safely from his tour of duty in Iraq. I taught Michael in elementary school and coached him for many years in NYSA soccer, Little League baseball, middle school and JV soccer. He also played JV football and JV and varsity baseball for Seaford. I was able to keep in touch with him in Iraq through sporadic e-mails inside the war zone and I tried to lift his spirits, whenever I could. Dennis, Karen, his brother John and Michael’s new wife, Stephanie (formerly Hall and a 2003 graduate) were all excited to put it mildly, when he returned to Camp Pendleton on September 30, 2006. “When the phone rang and I heard Mike’s voice telling me he was safe in California, I cried buckets,” his mom said in a recent phone interview. “They were tears of joy,” she stressed. “Our prayers had been answered.” Mike’s journey began, when he enlisted as a Marine reservist in January 2003. He and another former Seaford graduate John Passwaters went into the Marines together and graduated from Parris Island boot camp in April 2003. While working and taking classes at Oklahoma University (Okmulgge campus), his Marine Reserve Unit based in Broken Arrow, Okla., was activated on December 1, 2005. His Marine Unit was deployed to Iraq on March 23, 2006, where he was stationed at Camp Baharia in Fellujah. He was a machine gunner on a humvee patrol unit until August, when he became a humvee driver. On Sept. 30, 2006, he returned to California a month before his unit, due to the pending birth of his and

Michael Nichols

Stephanie’s first child. They are expecting in November. When his unit returns to Camp Pendleton in late October, he will return to his home in Porum, Okla. The Nichols family would like to personally thank all the Seaford area churches, residents and postal workers for their prayers and support during Michael’s tour of duty. GOD SPEED JOHN AND TODDThis past week word reached me that two more of my students have orders for Iraq. Former Seaford High athletes, Todd Brooke and John Passwaters are with Marine units. Todd Brooke is a Navy Field Medic assigned to a Marine Infantry Company. He is a fully trained combat soldier, but his specialty is to treat the wounded soldiers during enemy engagements. John Passwaters will pilot a river patrol boat carrying three machine gunners and he will drive a humvee on ground patrol. Todd is the son of Neal and Lillian Brooke and John is the son of Gary and Terri Passwaters. PRAY FOR OUR HEROES- I would like to remind you of the sacrifice that Ryan Long, Corey Palmer and Rick James made for our country and ask that you continue to pray for them, but also to add Todd and John to your list for a safe homecoming.

PAGE 49 of the end zone. Kyle Brown’s strong right foot made it 21-7 as the scoring closed for the evening. Laurel coach Ed Manlove said after the game that the shotgun plays were kind of a last resort that had not been working well in practice. The Bulldogs play another Saturday game at Parkside on October 14 while the Raiders play a Thursday home game against Smyrna. Game notes- Unnoticed in this hard hitting affair was the 187 yards rushing on 34 carries for Raider workhorse Jordan Wescott. Quinones had eight carries for 142 yards and three touchdowns. Eddie Stewart had 11 total tackles and Vondel Foreman had eight tackles and one batted pass for the Raiders. Cody Bristow continues to lead the Bulldog defense as he had 13 tackles and a fumble recovery. Sophomore Josh Kosiorowski also had 13 tackles and senior Trent Passwaters had his best game since returning from an injury with 10 tackles and a fumble recovery.

A Laurel fumble by Ben Lloyd early in the fourth quarter proved fatal for the Bulldogs as Quinones took a handoff from quarterback Austin Perry and raced 21 yards for the second score of the game at the 9:15 mark of the fourth quarter (on the exact play he ran for a score before). Idler’s second extra point attempt was also good making the score 14-0. A series of fumbles and recoveries including Kyle Avery’s kickoff recovery for the Raiders resulted in no scores until after a Woodbridge delay of game penalty that found them at midfield. Perry’s fake to Wescott and handoff to Quinones once again fooled the Bulldogs and Quinones again raced down the sideline for a 50yard touchdown with 4:09 left in the game. Idler was perfect again making it a 21-0 disappointment for Laurel fans. Blake Fare brought the Woodbridge kickoff out to the Bulldog 40 yard line on the next series and the Bulldogs went to a shotgun offense for the first time this season. A dropped pass from Laurel quarterback Lance Kelley was followed by a catch by Kosiorowski who cut across the field and carried it to the Raider 20 yard line with time running out. The next play resulted in a 20-yard touchdown catch by sophomore David Albert who fought off defenders to snare the pass in the corner

Raven Roundup- Ravens fall to Riders in Monday football game The Sussex Tech football team fell to Caesar Rodney, 41-14, in a home game on Monday afternoon after rain caused the game to be postponed last Friday. Caesar Rodney scored 41 first half points before the Ravens got on the board in the third quarter on a 15-yard touchdown run by quarterback Zach Adkins. Adkins completed a 65-yard pass to freshman Sean Hopkins for a fourth quarter score before running the two-point conversion in to make it 41-14. Field hockey team blanks Dover- The Sussex Tech varsity field hockey team blanked Dover, 3-0, last Thursday. Tiamia Black netted a goal on a feed from Lindsay Danz before Brittany Joseph scored a pair of goals with assists from Lindsay O’Neal and Ellen Rowe.

Delmar hockey needs overtime to defeat Seaford, 3-2 By Mike McClure The Delmar varsity field hockey team held a 1-0 lead at half-time of last Thursday’s game in Delmar, but the Blue Jays came out fired up in the second half and eventually forced a seven-on-seven sudden death overtime. The Wildcats netted a goal less than four minutes into overtime to hold off their Henlopen South foes, 3-2. Delmar’s Katie McMahon netted a goal with 23:26 left in the first half for the only goal of the half. Delmar held a 5-3 edge in shots and a 6-0 advantage in corners in addition to a 1-0 lead. Wildcat senior Erin Tingle extended the lead to 2-0 early in the second half before the Jays stormed back. Kari Bergh dribbled the ball up field and fed Jessica Harper who rocketed a shot into the cage with 9:53 left in the game to make it 2-1. Delmar had a pair of near misses as Alison Bloodsworth fired a shot off the left bar after taking a pass from Katie McMahon. Delmar’s Lindsay Lloyd knocked the ball in the circle on a corner and teammate Mallory Elliott fell into the goal as the ball trickled wide right. Seaford took advantage of the missed opportunities as Harper netted her second goal of the game, this time on a feed from Kelsey Riggleman with 1:40 left to knot the score at 2-2. The score remained tied through regulation, forcing the overtime period. After a near goal by Elliott, McMahon took a pass from Lloyd and scored the game-winning goal less than four minutes into overtime. “I always expect a tough competition with Seaford. With Seaford and Laurel being as close as they are you really can’t look at records (going into the games),” Delmar head coach Linda Budd said. “They (Seaford) really dug deep and gave us all we could handle.” “I think when we scored out first goal we kind of let up and one goal just isn’t going to do it,” added Budd. Delmar advanced to 5-1 in Henlopen Conference play and 8-1 overall with the win while Seaford fell to 3-2-2 and 3-4-2. It was the second overtime loss for the Blue Jays, who also have a pair of ties.

Seaford High field hockey team has another emotional week By Gene Bleile The Seaford hockey team had another emotional week with a 1-1 tie against powerhouse Milford and a sudden death overtime loss to top 10 ranked Delmar 3-2 during last week’s play. The Jays started Tuesday’s game with instant fireworks when Kelsey Riggleman scored Seaford’s only goal of the game within the first minute of play. “Kelsey drilled it past the Bucs goalie and it bounced off the back board inside the cage and came back on the field,” Coach Robin Verdery said after the game. “Bethany Cooper gave her a nice pass for the assist.” The first period then turned into a defensive battle until three minutes to go in the period, when Milford tied the game on a penalty stroke. At the half, Verdery stressed to her young team that “we have played up to their level and not to let down in the second half. Continue to be aggressive and win the ball,” she added. Milford must have gotten a similar pep talk at half, because the second period ended in another defensive standoff and into the overtime period with a final score knotted at 1-1. Milford had nine shots and Seaford had five shots for the game. On Thursday, Oct. 5, Seaford gave powerhouse Delmar a scare, when they fought back in the second half and tied the score 2-2, to send the game into sudden death overtime. Nine minutes into the second period, the Jays Jessica Harper scored her first of two goals on an assist from Kari Bergh. With only a minute and a half left, Harper scored to tie the game on as assist from Kelsey Riggleman. In the overtime period, Seaford’s comeback ran out of time, when the Wildcats’ Katie McMahon scored to ice the game. After the game, Verdery said she was proud of her girls comeback and even though the score didn’t show it, “we were a team of winners today.” Seaford had six shots on goal, while the Wildcats had 11. Seaford falls to 3-4-3 overall and 3-2-2 in conference.

Pumpkin recipes raising money for local charities The 2006 Punkin Chunkin World Championship extends beyond soaring gourds. Events during the weekend of Nov. 3-5 will include some of the best pumpkin recipes flying out of creative kitchens and onto the judges’ platform to raise money for charity. As part of the time-honored pumpkin festival, there are several cooking competitions that local amateur and professional chefs enter to show off their skills cooking all things pumpkin related. “Take something, add pumpkin, and you never know what you’re going to come up with,” said Sandy Elliott, cooking contest director. “It’s all about tasting the wonders of the pumpkin world.” The contest usually raises money for one specific charity, or it can be any reputable nonprofit organization, said Frank Shade, Punkin Chunkin Association president. “The rules require every contestant to provide two complete entries,” he said. “One of them is for judging, and the other is auctioned off.” “The person whose dish sells the most at auction gets to choose the charity from the auction proceeds. It’s really a lot of fun,” said Elliott. Winners receive plaques and other donated incentives; there are no cash awards. “Most important, the winners have Sussex County bragging rights for a whole year,” said Elliott. “Plus, the cooking contest is the only part of Punkin Chunkin in which pie is a good thing. When there’s a pie in the sky for a chunker, that usually means there is a problem.” Judges for the contests are professional chefs and celebrity guests, and the unknown spectator, whom Elliott’s husband will unceremoniously grab from the midway. The cooking contest also includes a cookbook with all the recipes entered in this year’s contest. The cookbooks are $5 each and are available at the contest tent. Cooking and baking categories include Entrees, Soups and Stews; Cookies, Candies and Snacks; Pastries and Other Desserts; Appetizer, Hor D’Oeuveres, Sauce; Restaurant and Professional Chef; Most Unique Use of Pumpkin; Best Presentation; and People’s Choice, which is

voted upon by spectators. Additionally, there is the No Holds Barred Chili Cookoff contest with prizes for the best chili recipe and the best chili recipe with pumpkin. Last year’s winning entries for the baking and cooking divisions included recipes for harvest stew, tortelli with pumpkin stuffing, pumpkin cream cheese brownies, pumpkin puffs and bourbon cake. The winner for best presentation went to the recipe for Tasty Pumpkin Ale, and another winning beverage entry went to a recipe for home brew apple sparkling wine. There chili contest has two categories: No Holds Barred and Chili with Pumpkin. Last year’s chili recipes with pumpkin winners included recipes for East A Ranch, Follow the Lemmings Chili and Sussex County Punkin Chunky Chili. The deadline for entering the cooking contests is Monday, Oct. 23, to allow time for the recipe books to be published. The cooking contest will be Saturday, Nov. 4; the chili contest will be Sunday, Nov. 5. For contest rules and an entry form for the cooking and baking contests, visit the website For rules information and an entry form for the chili competition, visit the website For more information, call Elliott at 9470273 or email her at pumpkincookoff@

Delaware’s Sportsmen Against Hunger Sportsmen Against Hunger has provided more than 800,000 meals to Delawareans With deer hunting season currently underway, Delaware’s Sportsmen Against Hunger is encouraging hunters to share their harvest by donating venison to Delawareans in need. The venison is distributed by DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife to more than 21 charitable organizations throughout the state. According to Greg Moore, wildlife administrator with the Division of Fish and Wildlife, the Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger chapter was formed in 1992 by a coalition of sporting groups, with DNREC as the primary sponsor. Last year, more than 30,000 pounds of venison was donat-

ed, providing more than 120,000 meals for the hungry. Recently, the division finalized the deer donation locations for participating hunters, including three locations in Sussex County, Redden State Forest, Assawoman Wildlife Area, and Trap Pond State Park. In addition, successful hunters can also take their deer to any participating private butcher shop. For more information or to volunteer for the Delaware Sportsmen Against Hunger Program, contact Wayne Lehman, 302-284-1077 (Kent and New Castle Counties) or Joe Shockley, 302-537-3217 (Sussex County).

Health Diabetes and its complications are serious By Dr. Anthony Policastro I was looking through my archives of articles. I found that it has been about eight years since I last wrote about diabetes. It is a common problem. It is a serious problem. For those two reasons, it is important to think about it from time to time. Insulin is a hormone that controls blood sugar levels. It lowers blood sugar after a meal. Diabetes is caused by a lack of insulin. Type 1 Diabetes is found most commonly in younger individuals. There appears to be some relationship to immunity. There also appears to be a genetic component. It runs in some families. These individuals have very little insulin. Therefore treatment always involves the use of insulin. Type 2 Diabetes is found in mostly older individuals. It is usually associated with overweight. As more young people become overweight, it is seen more often in younger people. There is also a genetic component to this type. These individuals have some insulin. They can be treated with weight loss. They can improve with diet. They can also take medication to help their insulin out. Once a person has been diagnosed as

Even though diabetes only affects 3.5 percent of the population (1 out of 30), it accounts for 15 percent of the health care dollar. being diabetic, he/she has the biggest challenge. Physicians can guide the treatment. However, the individual becomes the one responsible for preventing the complications. Even though diabetes only affects 3.5 percent of the population (1 out of 30), it accounts for 15 percent of the health care dollar. This is because of the many complications. For example, the average annual cost of health care for the non-diabetic patient is $1,082. The average annual cost of health care for a diabetic is $4,415.

At one time we thought a diabetic could avoid complications if they had reasonable levels of elevated blood sugar. Now we realize that is not true. The closer the blood sugar is kept to normal, the less likely the individual is to have complications. That means careful monitoring of blood sugar is essential. It means treatment of high levels of blood sugar is important. It means that proper diet is a must. That means that weight loss is a necessity. It means that the use of medication or insulin must be done as prescribed. There are three areas where the improvement in complications has been measured when the blood sugar is well controlled. The first of these is eye disease. Diabetics can suffer damage to the eye. Good control decreases the damage. Annual visits to the eye doctor can detect it earlier. Surgery and blindness are the consequences of not doing so. Good control reduces eye complications by 76 percent. The second area is nerve and small blood vessel damage in the skin. This can cause skin ulcers and gangrene of the toes and feet. The treatment for foot ulcers is long and complicated. The treatment for gangrene is amputation. Good control reduces these complications by 60 percent.

The third major area is kidney problems. Diabetes affects the kidneys as well. Many diabetic patients eventually require renal dialysis three times a week. Good control reduces these complications by 56 percent. Diabetics also have a higher incidence of heart disease and stroke. This is due to the effects on the blood vessels in the heart and brain. The evidence supports the likelihood that poor diabetic control will result in significant complications at the 10-15-year point after the diagnosis. The result of all of these problems can be poor quality of life and early death. There is evidence that maintaining a normal weight can reduce the incidence of the adult type of diabetes. This should be a goal for all of us for multiple reasons. There is also evidence that the individual who develops diabetes can make their future medical status better by careful attention to treatment requirements. If you or someone in your family has diabetes, this is important to remember. It is better to prevent complications than to deal with them later. Dr. Anthony Policastro is medical director at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital.

Nanticoke announces new Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center Nanticoke Memorial Hospital has announced the opening of a new advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center. The center specializes in the healing of chronic non-healing wounds. This is a growing problem for many patients, especially for those who suffer from diabetes. People with diabetes are prone to wounds that do not heal, particularly on their feet. In the U.S. alone, about 15 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes, and 15 percent of them, or more than 2.3 million will develop at least one foot ulcer, according to the American Diabetes Association. In addition to diabetic foot ul-

cers, the wound center treats wounds including frostbite, nonhealing sores, carbon monoxide poisoning, and crush injuries. The center offers two hyperbaric chambers to assist with oxygen saturation and advanced healing. These clear tubes allow patients to lie comfortably inside and watch television while being pressurized and breathing pure oxygen (normally you breathe about 21 percent oxygen in the air). This is especially helpful for patients with circulatory issues. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital’s new center is a joint venture with Medical Multiplex, Inc. based out of Louisville, Ky.. The company runs wound care pro-

grams in 12 states. The combination of advanced wound care techniques and adjunctive therapies with resources from all over the country give patients optimal care and positive outcome rates of over 90 percent of those who complete the recommended care plan. The center specializes in advanced wound healing technologies that include bioengineered skin grafts and silver-

based medications which inhibit bacteria and allow the body tissues to regenerate. Nanticoke Health Services’ Chief Executive Office, Daniel Werner states “We are proud to be the first in the state of Delaware to offer an Advanced Wound Care Center that provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Health Bulletins Mental Health, Depression Screening on October 21 Have you been feeling consistently moody or sad? Can’t relax or concentrate? Been alternating between highs and lows? Have you been troubled by unexplained aches and pains? Are you unable to eat or sleep? If so, you may be suffering from depression or a mental health disorder. Daybreak Counseling Services is offering free mental health screenings for a range of common emotional situations that often go undiagnosed and misunderstood. If you haven’t been feeling like yourself lately, a screening can help you figure out what is wrong. Screenings for depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder will be held at St. John’s United Methodist Church , Pine and Poplar Streets, Seaford, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21. “We are pleased to be able to offer depression screening to the community as part of this year’s event for Mental Health Awareness. Many people are not able to attend a screening event due to work, school or family commitments. This screening program offers people on a Saturday the opportunity for a free screening and confidential referral if necessary,” says Constance Hastings, Daybreak counselor and staff counselor for St. John’s Church. As part of the in-person screening event, attendees will have the opportunity to complete a written self-assessment and talk one-on-one with a mental health professional. Those who appear to need further evaluation will be given referrals to local treatment services. Last year, more than 200,000 attended nationally.

Discharge Summary Delaware’s Division of Public Health (DPH) announces the release of Delaware’s 2001-2004 Hospital Discharge Summary Report. The document contains patient demographics, how and why patients were admitted to the hospital, how patients were discharged, average charges and length of stay by diagnosis, and patient distribution (what does that mean?). In addition, hospital and healthcare system profiles compiled by the Delaware Healthcare Association provide information on accreditation, ownership, medical staff and services. Findings of the report include: Annual cesarean delivery rates in Delaware have increased significantly, from 22.9 cesareans per 100 deliveries in 1994 to 30.5 in 2004. This is similar to the national trend. In 2004, Delaware hospitals had shorter hospital stays, on average, than they did 10 years prior. Sixty percent of all hospitalizations had a duration of three or fewer days. The number of hospitalizations increased steadily over the four-year period from 2001 to 2004, rising from 100,681 in 2001 to 111,806 in 2004. Patients from outside of Delaware comprised 13.1 percent of all discharges in 2004, with the majority from Pennsylvania (5.1 percent), Maryland (4.5 percent), and New Jersey (2.6 percent). Admissions from hospital emergency departments accounted for 48 percent of all hospital admissions from 2001 to 2004; 47 percent came from physicians, and the remaining 5 percent were admitted from clinics, HMOs, or transferred from other facilities. 74.6 percent of uninsured admissions come from emergency department. The most frequent reasons for hospitalization fell under the category of diseases and disorders of the circulatory system, and include heart attack, heart disease, and stroke. From 2001 to 2004, an average of 11,418 women per year delivered their children in Delaware hospitals. The average length of stay for infants delivered by cesarean section are almost twice that of infants delivered vaginally, and the length of stay for infants who are part of a plural birth is three times that of single births. Delaware’s 2001-2004 Hospital Discharge Summary Report can be viewed at ealthstats.html.

✳ OCTOBER 12 - 18, 2006

Letters Seaford School Board should lead students to success In a town of 5,700, three people hold a key link to economic prosperity — the prosperity which is built from a thriving school system. And, the prosperity which provides not only skilled and knowledgeable young adults but also serves to build an informed citizenry — a necessary ingredient to our democracy. On a fivemember school board, three members can swing the Seaford School District into effective action for student achievement. While I am sure the professional staff of the school works diligently to improve student learning, clearly student achievement, as reported by the district, lags behind the state and national average for secondary students and has not improved significantly in the last five years. Why, year after year, do scores lag in the secondary schools? Could it be school and district administrators do not possess the skills and knowledge to implement success strategies to turn their schools around? Or, could it be the school board is not ensuring school policies are carried out with the goal of high student achievement? More than likely, it is a combination of the two which results in deflated student achievement at the secondary level despite gains made in the elementary schools. I recently penned a letter to the school board regarding the 7-year curriculum project in the secondary schools. I questioned what had been done along the seven years to ensure teaching and learning strategies were kept abreast of this new curriculum. Further, I questioned how parents would use these new maps to work effectively with the school on student learning outcomes. I reviewed the school’s district Web site (I encourage you to do the same) to determine how the public might use the curriculum maps and to review the alignment of school board goals to student achievement. Touted as the most significant curriculum effort in the secondary schools in the past decade, I was looking forward to reviewing the parent/community guide to curriculum and, being a former educator, the curriculum itself. I need to keep looking — I found no parent/community guide to understanding the curriculum. As someone knowledgeable about curriculum and teaching and learning, I understand curriculum maps; for parents and community, a guide would be useful. Furthermore, the posted curriculum maps consist only of middle school algebra. Purportedly, the other maps are available; the district has not seen their way to posting them on their Web site. Let me make a suggestion: Have students pursue the posting on the Web site — then parents and community could review the work and more importantly, students might find out the expectations for their learning this year. From a learned perspective, the curriculum maps do not show alignment to the board of education local curriculum nor the State Content Standards—a stated goal of the project. Further, the learning objectives are stated as “students will de-

velop the ability”; the last time I checked objectives stated thus are not behavioral and cannot be easily assessed. Effective schools make learning and assessment explicit, i.e. students know what they are going to learn and know how they are expected to show evidence they have learned. It is hoped the district will continue to polish this stone as it seems kind of jagged at this juncture. Clearly, school administrators should be developing projects which at least meet accepted professional standards for learning outcomes. The school board should be seeking evidence from administrators on the success strategies which will be used to implement the curriculum to ensure student achievement improves. What about the school board’s role in this process? Effective school districts hold student achievement as paramount to success. Essentially, keys to effective schooling involve a focus on student achievement, frequent and varied assessment, professional development focused on teaching and learning, and effective parent/community involvement. It seems to me, the School Board should be focused on that effort. However, when you again review the district’s web site, to determine School Board goals for the year, you have to go to the August Board minutes to see what was approved. How many people would know to do that? Wouldn’t it be easier to simply post Board Goals separately on the web site? It would seem so if the goal was school accountability? The board approved the following 2006-2007 Board Priority Goals: 1) Improve relations with the community; 2) Increase the district’s local operating revenues; and 3) Continue to update the staff and community with respect to how the district plans to spend the additional funds that will become available as a result of the passage of the current expense referendum in February 2006. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t read anything in the three goals about student achievement. One would hazard a guess about the last time the school board had a goal regarding student achievement. Is it coincidence it was the same time the district administration decided it didn’t want to be held accountable for the lack of student achievement at the secondary level? It seems to me the school board needs to rethink their 2006-2007 priority goals. If the school board does not think student achievement is critical, why would anyone who works in the district worry about focusing on student learning? In this scenario, student achievement becomes a by-product of taxpayer dollars, not the focus of those dollars. Researchers have provided ample evidence of the connection between effective schools and vibrant communities. Where there is high student achievement, there is a strong correlation to economic prosperity and community well-being. Seaford voters recently voted no to annexation largely due to concern over infrastructure development in conjunction with housing development. School improvement is no less important, and I offer, it is as vital to infrastructure development and a key component of a holistic process. The school board needs to make some

key adjustments—a focus on student achievement and a focus on holding district and school professionals accountable for improving student achievement at all levels. It only takes three of you to start the ball rolling. Hopefully, Seaford won’t have to wait another decade to see this happen. Col. Ken Madden Jr. Seaford

Mennonite school taking steps after shootings in Pennsylvania Editor’s note: The following letter was sent following the shootings at a private school in Pennsylvania. All of our hearts have been saddened by the shootings at the Nickel Mines Amish school. Our prayers are with the people who live in that area, and especially with those families who had loved ones killed, or injured. We also want to keep Mrs. Roberts and her children in our prayers. This event happened close to us at the Greenwood Mennonite School in several ways: geographically, culturally, and it was a private school. When this kind of event happens this close to us it makes us take a look at our own security measures more closely. For now and the near future we are locking all doors during school hours except the front door by the office. When students go from one class to another class all travel will be inside the school. We will have the doors which students usually use upon arrival at school open from 8:20-8:30 a.m. This is an inconvenience with which we can live. Please feel free to call the school and talk to us about any concerns you may have. Larry J. Crossgrove Principal, Greenwood Mennonite School

The days of casting votes along party lines are over This coming election is a strange one. We are in a war, yet we are not united to win it. Political party politics puts its agenda ahead of our country’s best interests… Yet, the ultimate effect will be upon us, not upon them. It is a time to think about who we vote

for and what it will mean later if we elect the wrong candidates. The days when you just voted blindly for the political party of your choice are over. No one party really represent us completely — we have to pick and choose the people within them. Both parties have conservatives and liberals, and though the mix is not the same, both exist. The days of simple party choosing are over. Hard as it is, we have to think carefully what is best for us and for our country. It is not easy but it is necessary. For the first time in our history since the revolution against England we have those within us who are siding with the enemy and they do it openly. They call it free speech. We have politicians who use the current war against terrorism, as serious as it is, to further their aim to regain political power. Their attacks are not against the terrorists, they are against our government, our very survival. Their words are picked up by the terrorists and turned into added hatred toward our troops and our country. Their accusations against our troops are used to dishonor them and to uphold the enemy. They know no bounds in their attempt to regain power, even if it is at the expense of making America look mean and smaller in the world’s eyes, and even accuse it of torture of innocent terrorists held by us in relatively luxurious captivity . How do we tolerate these unpatriotic attacks from within upon our world safety? What good does it do them to try to elevate themselves at the expense of the nation’s reputation as model of moral authority? Our patriotic soldiers are fighting for us and willing to give up their lives for our country. Yet, we have a political party that is willing to give up our country for their political lives. As hard as it is to admit, it is the Democratic Party. On the other hand, the other alternative is a political party that poses as conservative but plays at liberalism behind the scenes. Only one thing comes to mind about liberalism and that is it shows itself to be the enemy of the Founding Fathers’ Constitution and Bill of Rights. They built into them a superb set of moral conditions that enabled us to rise to our present stance of top of the world morality, based upon their true rules of statesmanship. We have to realize that our national moral strength is our one great feature that

MORNING STAR sets us apart - and we don’t value it as we should. We have organizations such as the ACLU that scheme carefully and endlessly to destroy the values of the Founding Fathers. They use shyster-lawyer tactics to urge about-face opinions on basic moral issues, urging use of international laws to encourage disregard for the Constitution, influencing the Supreme Court to forget they are there only to interpret that document and not to adopt perverse ideas. That only encourages our Congress to serve their lobbyists instead of their constituents. We are in the middle of a political morass that not only deserves a time-out for thinking but absolutely demands it. Let us start our thinking by realizing the basis of our problem. Exactly what is a conservative and what is a liberal? Actually, even though ridiculed, a conservative is merely one who stands up for those moral qualities that made us a great nation. It is someone who believes in God and the life God describes for us, who loves and respects his neighbor, does not steal nor bear false witness, is faithful to his wife and children, and who respects life. Yet those qualities instilled in generations before us by the Ten Commandments are despised and ridiculed as fanatical “conservative.” And why is that? What is evil in those motives? Nothing is. But there is a reason behind hatred of the Ten Commandments. The reason is that the Ten Commandments are a major part of the basis of civil and moral law. Over the centuries, they have helped to shape the world that recognizes them into a relatively peaceful society. Without those principles, there would be total chaos. Disregarded, there are no restrictions on hate, murder, stealing, lies, slander, abortion, disrespect, marital infidelity. Pornography, homosexuality — you name it, anything goes. Liberals do not wish to be restricted from doing whatever it occurs to them to do. Without a restriction to truth, they can lie, deceive, scheme and kill with impunity. Unchecked, it can go to any lengths to achieve a purpose - and the result is anarchy in law. The ACLU specializes in it. By their attacks on the Ten Commandments, they can propose any evil idea as an authorized and legal civil “right” an exact opposite of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights intended. They are in collusion with their liberal pals in Congress and in federal courts and their corrupted Supreme Court liberals. The simple reason for attack on religion is not that those who practice it are dangerous fanatics, it is that they do not agree to kick God out to let anything whatever in. Liberalism, therefore, is just a way to circumvent the Founding Fathers who gave

up their lives for their country. It wants to substitute the un-founding fathers of today who wish to give up their country for their political party’s life, and their own joy in deceiving the American people. These are harsh words indeed, but they are unfortunately true. The issue is not just a trading of ideas; it is the casting away of our national unity and strength which means national survival. . They are clever and they are good at spreading hate. They particularly hate Christianity which preaches love, because they secretly follow the dictum of hate. Just disagree with them and they really pour it on. They are good at it. Christianity is bad in their eyes because it puts a damper on hate. So, in this coming election, remember it is a time to clean house. Those in present political power in Delaware who are in conflict with the ideal of giving up their lives for America, and who are living a life of opposite values, screen them out by voting for a person who is more American. Forget political party; vote for the person. If he or she does not fit the ideal American model of good character, truth and integrity, don’t give a vote. If both parties are less than ideal, vote for the one who is at least a better choice But, above all, vote for the candidates that put America first. Remember that the best political candidate is not the best liar. You would have an impossible time trying to find that one - there are so many good at it. Find one that is not so good, one you think you can trust, one that acts out of a real love of country, one that realizes he is an elected public servant, not a freelance con artist. We have to ask ourselves who, regardless of political party, possesses the brains, the wisdom, the education, the experience and the integrity to do the best job for our country. We need statesmen, not hack politicians who are in it for themselves and not for us. We need to carefully screen them and cast out the self-serving ones, even those already in office. In the old days, a wise layman would accept an elected office in order to give it his wisdom and integrity at his own expense, not to gain from it personally. They sacrificed their lives for our nation, not to get fat on it. They had to neglect their personal lives to serve their county. Contrast that to our present day politicians, most of whom do not even qualify as statesmen, and who hardly ever succeed in making a personal imprint on the history of the United States. Why? Because they just don’t have it in them. Every position in our elected government offices should be filled with the best

qualified, not the best actor. In the army, a new recruit is not made a general, nor in the navy is a kid off the farm made an admiral. In Delaware today, we have a nice young man, Beau Biden, newly out of law school, without a rounded legal experience nor a wide record of legal knowledge, who wants to be the Attorney General. Wisdom comes with age and experience. Why would anyone so obviously inexperienced or unqualified nominate himself as the top legal man in Delaware? Could it be because he considers it a political goal and not an opportunity to serve the people? We have others in Delaware who do just that. Like father, like son? On the other hand, why do our members of the Senate, Biden and Carper, always vote the far left liberal agenda when the people of Delaware are basically conservative? Why does our member of the House of Representatives vote more with the opposite Party than his own? Why does our Governor allow developers to invade our counties and profit from over-development that will result in lower quality of living but higher taxes for everyone in order to give a select few politicians and their developer pals big real estate profits? Delaware is a rapidly developing state, with economic, legal and moral standards so long established being circumvented and turned upside down by both political parties who are serving themselves at the ultimate expense of the unaware taxpayers who vote by rote. Those days of simple trust of your elect-

We have to ask ourselves who, regardless of political party, possesses the brains, the wisdom, the education, the experience and the integrity to do the best job for our country. We need statesmen, not hack politicians who are in it for themselves and not for us. ed officials are over. Delaware has been invaded by the more sophisticated and corrupted ideals of surrounding states whose citizens are flocking here to escape what is entering with them. To preserve the innate good character of Delaware, we need to consider this next election as a first step to preserve what is left of the old-fashioned integrity this state had that made it what it was. It is worth fighting for. So, consider very carefully who you vote for in the next election. Good men exist in both parties and they should be selected on their own merits and not on party political spin. Do some checking. In both political parties there are candidates who put America first. Find them and vote out those who do not fit the mold. Think about it. The rest of your life you have to live by the result of that vote. Charles N. Valenti Rehoboth

Opinion Election coverage will be balanced

Editorial When do you stop a lunatic? U.S. Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D-DE) issued the following statement on October 9 in reaction to reports of North Korea’s test of a nuclear weapon: “North Korea’s nuclear test is a deliberate and dangerous provocation. It could spark a regional arms race that is in no one’s interest. This is a tremendous test for U.S. diplomacy and the resolve of our partners starting with China and South Korea. More pressure on North Korea is necessary, but not sufficient. We need a strategy that convinces the North to stop making bombs and put all of its fissile material under international monitoring. I believe that strategy must include direct engagement with the North. The failure to engage only gives North Korea more time to build and test more nuclear weapons.” Question: How many lunatics does it take to make the world unsafe? Answer: Just one. Members of the United Nations are talking about sanctions, but such actions will not put enough pressure on North Korea’s leadership. They are messing with our planet when they set off underground explosions that are powerful enough to register the same as earthquakes. If they set off a destructive global chain reaction the debate ends. There is no other place to go to live. Question: How long do you allow a ruler to continue down a path that can lead to nuclear war? Answer: The answer is you stop them BEFORE it is too late. We hope our leadership unites to stop this threat. Sen. Biden is a major component of our efforts to take action. We encourage him to make it a bi-partisan effort.

As the Election day draws closer, I feel it is important to restate this newspaper’s policy on election coverage. We are not interested in getting drawn into the middle of debates between candidates. We are not interested in attending so-called “news conferences” at which candidates feed the media carefully prepared position papers. We especially are not interested in allowing our news space for mudslinging. What we are interested in (and I hope readers are, too) is how the candidates will vote on key issues if they are fortunate enough to get elected. And we want to provide each candidate with the opportunity to tell why they are the better choice. We are offering the candidates equal space to state their positions and to point out differences. As I stated a few weeks ago, our staff is comprised of members of both major political parties along with at least two Independents. We are careful to be fair to all political persuasions. We do not take our responsibilities to the public or the candidates lightly. Again, part of our purpose is to encourage a high voter turnout. After living through the ordeal of the 2000 Presidential Election, we are keenly aware of the importance of every vote. We plan to publish an “Issues and Answers” section prior to the November Election. All of the candidates will be given an opportunity to respond, even those of the minor political parties. Once again, here are some of our other Election policy guidelines: • Upon filing for office, we will allow any candidate an opportunity to announce his or her candidacy and to briefly state his or her positions in an initial news release. • Elected officials have an advantage over challengers. Some office holders like to remind us that they were the “driving force” behind efforts to bring improvements to the area.

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