Fall Ag Festival shaping up By Carol Kinsley

The Fall Ag Festival to be held Oct. 23 and 24 in celebration of the Governor Ross Mansion’s 150th year is shaping up to be more fun than a county fair set back in time a century or more. Ron Breeding, who co-chairs the community planning committee with his wife Sue, says the festival will offer “a little science, some history and a whole lotta ag!” The festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. The mansion, then situated on a 1,389-acre plantation, was built in 1859 by William Henry Harrison Ross, a Laurel native who had served as Delaware governor from 1851 to 1855. The rebuilt log slave quarters on the property are the only remaining

slave quarters this far north. Located on North Pine Street, the brick Italian villa-style structure has as a new neighbor the Seaford public library. The grounds will be filled with entertainment for young and old, including demonstrations by artisans spinning yarn, making brooms or shingles, caning chairs and blacksmithing. Two styles of basket making will be demonstrated and two groups will be quilting. One man is coming all the way from Painter, Va., to grind corn the old-fashioned way. Antique cars and tractors will be displayed, as well as a collection of old washing machines. The Spade and Trowel Garden Club of Seaford will be selling pumpkins full of flowers and taking orders for its annual Holiday

Seaford holds third Breast Cancer Survivors Walk

By Lynn R. Parks

Nanticoke Health Services and the city of Seaford held their annual Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Survivors Walk last Tuesday. More than 100 people gathered in the parking lot of Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and walked to Gateway Park in downtown Seaford. Each walker carried a pink glow stick. Trees in the park were wrapped in pink lights and the flood lights in the park’s fountain shone pink. Pink is the color that the American Cancer Society has chosen to symbolize the fight against breast cancer.

The walkers’ way was illuminated by pink torches, lit before the start of the walk by Jesse Davis, whose mother, Melissa Lamont Davis, died a couple of years ago from breast cancer. Guest speaker for the evening was Carla Markell, wife of Delaware Gov. Jack Markell. She is a survivor of breast cancer and an advocate for mammography and early detection. “Like so many Delaware women, I am fortunate that my cancer was caught early,” Markell said in an earlier speech for the Philadelphia affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer organization.

“Sometimes, women don’t know that they have breast cancer because they haven’t had a mammogram. Early detection is critical to life-saving treatment. I am here today because of that, and I want to help empower women at every economic level to get the breast cancer screening information they need to take care of themselves for life.” This was the third year for the walk. City of Seaford spokeswoman Trisha Newcomer said that the city gets involved in the event to increase awareness of breast cancer. “We encourage everybody to be aware of the danger of breast cancer, and to get checked regularly,” she said.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On Friday, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will host a tea for survivors of breast cancer. The tea, which will be held in the hospital cafeteria, is being sponsored by the Delaware Breast Cancer coalition, the Wellness Community, the American Cancer Society and Nanticoke Health Services. Representatives from each organization will speak. The tea will start at 2:30 p.m. Other activities have included the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Delaware Technical and Community College in Georgetown and an open house at Nanticoke’s Mears Center in Seaford.

An amazing number of opportunities will be available in the silent and live auctions. The newest offering is a gold bracelet with sapphires and diamonds from MEG-GEM. Many handcrafted items will be presented. A carved Santa by Bab Larkin should be of special interest with Christmas rapidly approaching. A toy tractor from Hoober’s should make an exciting children’s Christmas gift. Numerous gift certificates are being offered.

Senator Ted Kaufman discusses his role finishing Biden’s term By Lynn R. Parks

Ted Kaufman was not at all sure, when he was offered the Senate seat that had belonged to Joe Biden, that he wanted it. The biggest cause of his hesitation, he said, was knowing that he would have to deal with the media. “When I was chief of staff for [then] Sen. Biden, I always found talking with reporters to be very stressful,” Kaufman said. Yet on Sunday evening, near the end of his two years in the Senate, there he was, appearing on the CBS news show “60 Minutes” and talking about the dangers of high frequency trading, a trading technique in which computers can make thousands of stock trades in less than a second. In an expanded interview on the “60 Minute” website, Kaufman gives a history lesson in high frequency trading. Earlier this month, Kaufman was quoted in the Washington Post in a story on the coming retirement rush. He was mentioned in a Bloomberg story about the May 6 drop in the stock market that has been blamed on high frequency trading. And in March, he was the focus of an article by The Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington, “Celebrating Sen. Kaufman, Accidental Leader.” “At a time when our political and financial landscapes are littered with villains and those unwilling to take them on, it’s refreshing to find someone in the halls of power that we can unabashedly celebrate,” wrote Huffington, who interviewed Kaufman in his Capitol office. “Enter Sen. Ted Kaufman of Delaware… [who has] emerged as one of the Senate’s fiercest critics of Wall Street and a champion of the need to push for a serious rebooting of our financial system.” Last week, Kaufman, 71, toured southern Delaware, stopping in to talk at Sussex County’s newspaper offices. “Since I’ve been senator, I’ve found talking with reporters to be challenging and interesting,” he said during an interview in the Morning Star office. “I figured out that before, when I was [Biden’s] chief of staff, when I was talking with reporters I was representing Joe. If I made a mistake, it reflected on him. Now, if I make a mistake, it’s just me.”

Kaufman was selected by then Gov. Ruth Ann Minner to fill the Senate seat left vacant when Biden became vice president in January 2009. He said then that he would not seek reelection and he is staying true to his word. He will resign his seat following the Nov. 2 election. “This has been an incredibly satisfying two years,” he said. “Not just for the country but for me. We have passed more legislation than any other Congress since FDR.” The list of legislation includes health care reform, Wall Street reform, credit card reform, the FDA tobacco bill that puts the tobacco industry under the control of the Food and Drug Administration, the small jobs bill, which created a fund to help small businesses, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, which extended the time in which an employee can file a claim of pay discrimination. “It’s a long list, an incredible list, and it was really quite an incredible opportunity to be a part of that,” Kaufman said. He is especially proud of the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act, legislation he co-sponsored with Sen. Leahy from Vermont and that President Obama signed into law in May 2009. The act enhances criminal enforcement of federal fraud laws, in particular regarding financial institutions, mortgage fraud and securities fraud. There were disappointments, however. Chief among them, Kaufman wrote in a

In his interview at the Star office, Kaufman said that focusing on a greener energy policy is not just a matter of benefiting the environment.

September article for the environmental news website Grist, was Congress’ failure to pass significant energy reform, including putting a price on carbon to address climate change. “The fact that we did not act to pass such meaningful reform in the 1111th Congress is one of my most significant disappointments in leaving the United States Senate next month,” he wrote.

MORNING STAR • OcTObeR 14 - 20, 2010 energy. We are not doing what we have to do in order to be competitive.” Ninety percent of the world’s production of clean energy is outside of the U.S., he wrote in the Grist article. Recently, he added, “China has overtaken the U.S. as the most attractive market for renewable energy projects.” As for climate change, “people who are using carbon fuels have to pay the full price for those fuels, including what it takes to clean up the harm they are doing,” he said. Kaufman wishes that during his time in the Senate, legislation had been passed to limit the size of major banks. The nation’s top five banks own 63 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product, and “that is way too big,” he said. “Congress took a lot of the important questions [about banking regulation] and handed them off to regulators to solve,” he added. “I would have felt better if we had put something into law.” He also would like to have seen more progress in Iraq, especially in the formation of a government there, and in Afghanistan, where “things are not going well.” And he had hoped that Congress would pass legislation to control those computergenerated high frequency trades that he talked about on “60 Minutes.” A lack of understanding about the market and a lack of political will meant that nothing was done, he said. “Trading is going at higher and higher speeds and we really don’t know what’s happening,” he said. “There’s no transparency in the process. Our markets could

lose credibility and if people don’t trust our markets, that really hurts us. You know how people say they don’t want this and they don’t want that for their grandchildren? Well, I don’t want to leave to my grandchildren a crippled market.” Despite those disappointments, and despite polls showing public approval of Congress hovering at around 18 percent, Kaufman insists that the Senate is not a broken institution. “The Senate is not dysfunctional,” he said. “We passed legislation. It may not have been the legislation that you liked, but we got things done.” He had high praise for fellow senators, Democrat and Republican alike. “Senators get along,” he said. “There’s not a senator whom I dislike. I respect them all, even the ones I disagree with. They are all willing to make sacrifices for public service and stand up for what they believe in.” As for the future, Kaufman said that he is ready for a more contemplative stage of life. He will continue to teach at Duke University, his alma mater, and will continue to serve on a number of nonprofit boards. He has also been tapped to replace Elizabeth Warren on the Congressional Oversight Panel, which was created to oversee the expenditure of TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) funds. Warren left the panel to serve as head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Shortly after Kaufman’s appointment to the panel, he was elected by its members to serve as chairman. By statute, the panel will remain active through April 3. On a personal level, Kaufman said, he

wants to be able to spend more time with his family, including his seven grandchildren. “People always say that parents can only be as happy as their saddest child,” he said. “Well, the same is true of grandchildren, maybe even more so. You can’t get happier than having happy grandchildren.” Kaufman said that many people have used his success in the Senate as an argument for term limits. In fact, he said, it’s really an argument against term limits — he was able to be successful in the Senate during his short tenure only because of his years of experience in Washington, including 19 years as Sen. Biden’s chief of staff. In her article for The Huffington Post, Arianne Huffington explained Kaufman’s success this way: “Spending time with Sen. Kaufman, and witnessing his passion and determination to fix the system, I asked myself: What conditions helped turn him into a fearless crusader? And how do we get more like him? “Leaving aside his personal character and wisdom, which we cannot duplicate, there is one very big condition we can: The absence of money as a factor in our leaders’ decision making. Kaufman didn’t need to raise any money to become a senator — he was appointed. And he doesn’t need to raise any money for his reelection campaign — he’s not running. “So let’s all take a good look at Ted Kaufman. This is what it looks like when our representatives are not beholden to special interests, and are only serving the public interest.”

It felt more like the middle of winter than an early fall day, but members of the Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) still took their message to the people during an all-day event at Allen’s Family Foods in Harbeson on Oct. 5. Realtors from throughout Sussex County distributed materials, both in English and in Spanish, to employees of the Harbeson poultry processing plant, information about how achieving the dream of homeownership can become a reality. “The point we want to get across through this new program is that most people can purchase a home, as long as they have a job, the proper information and good planning skills,” says Judy Dean, 2010 president of SCAOR. Partnering with local employers, the new program is dubbed Employer Assisted Housing and tackles many of the hurdles prospective homeowners encounter when searching for their first home. One of the major obstacles in recent years has been the rising cost of real estate in Sussex County and throughout the nation. Allen’s Family Foods is one of the first Sussex County businesses to come on board with the project, a local version of a National Association of Realtors’ program. “From our perspective, we’re obviously very interested in the success of our people. One of the ways they are going to be able to make it in life is by having a decent job and decent housing,” says Fred Downs, human resources manager for Allen’s Family Foods. EAH is an employer-based benefit that helps employees move beyond the most common homeownership hurdles. This enables them to purchase, or rent, a home, often within neighborhoods located near their workplace. A well-coordinated and properly implemented EAH program benefits all parties

involved by simply putting hard-working employees in homes near where they work. This can cut down on commute time, improve morale within the workplace, provide additional tax revenue for the local economy and reduce recruitment costs for the employer, among its other benefits. The program is coordinated by SCAOR’s Housing Opportunity Partner (HOP) committee and is funded through a grant from the National Association of Realtors. Up to $1,000 in assistance per applicant is also possible through a national grant, while funds last. “We want to let people know that this program is available and that we’re here to offer assistance in any way we can, especially as we’re recovering from the debilitating recession we’ve all recently experienced,” says Dean. “We think this program can help spur the real estate markets here in Sussex County and we’re hopeful more employers, and workers, will come on board very soon.” The Society for Human Resource Management estimates that it costs a business $3,500 to replace one $8 per hour employee when all costs are considered. Those costs include recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training, reduced productivity and more. The more workers that need replaced, the higher the costs for the employer and the more difficult it is for the company to make a profit. Thus, using the EAH program to offer homeownership counseling and financial assistance to employees can prove invaluable to the small business owner.

‘Miss Neicy’ helps students put their priorities into focus By James Diehl

S

ome kids call her “mom,” others call her “mom-mom” – most of her coworkers know her as “Miss Neicy.” But ask people in Laurel if they know Esther Robinson and you’re bound to get a few blank stares and quizzical looks. It may be her given name, but you wouldn’t know it by asking folks around “Bulldog Country.” “Nobody calls me by my real name,” says “Miss Neicy,” who has been a substitute teacher for the Laurel School District for the last several years. “But I don’t know a teacher here who doesn’t give me a hug when I’m walking down the hallway. They include me in their everyday routines here at the high school, and that makes me feel really, really good.” Esther Denise Robinson was born the third youngest of 12 kids to a mother who suffered most of her life with the everyday struggles of living with muscular dystrophy. Her father left home when she was about five years old, her mother passed away four years later. Her life was not an easy one, but today she freely speaks of those days while helping mold the lives of young people in southern Sussex County. If she can share a story about life in foster care, or of the abuse she suffered at the hands of a family member as a young girl, she will. She likes to “keep it real” – it gets her message across and many students in Laurel have heard it loud and clear. “My life was really rough growing up, even when I was in the foster home. But I didn’t want to keep going from home to home, so I just learned to deal with it,” says Robinson. “My kids tell me today that nobody really cared about them until I came, which makes me feel good. And I understand, because I’ve been there. Growing up, I felt like I was all alone, like it was just me talking to God.” A member of the Indian River High School class of 1978, Robinson has four kids of her own – three boys and one girl, ranging in age from 15 to 23. Those are her actual

If you know of someone who has dedicated his or her life to service to others, suggest their names for this series. Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com biological children, but when she talks about the young people she looks out for today, it’s with the affection and understanding of a true parent. They are “her” kids, each and every one of them; she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I just see a lot of kids today who don’t have relationships with their parents. Some are growing up way too fast without adult supervision,” says Robinson. “But they just need somebody to talk to. They can’t carry the weight of the world on their shoulders or they’re going to get angry at themselves and angry toward other people.” She may not substitute every day at Laurel High School, but she is rarely not in the building during the school year. Sometimes she’s teaching, sometimes she’s helping out around the office, sometimes she’s volunteering as a chaperone on school trips or at band competitions – but she’s involved, each and every day she’s able. She’s seen some heartbreaking stories through the years, tales of sorrow and bad fortune that permeate through the community where she lives and works. Her home has become a bit of a gathering spot for many kids in the neighborhood, young people who rely on her for guidance, for support and even for a ride to and from school on occasion. “The parents are around, but they just don’t have the transportation to get the kids to or from school,” says Robinson. “I’ve seen kids turn around and go back home because they’re tired of walking, but I don’t want it to be said that they can’t make it to school. So, I’ll pick them up and get them to where they need to go.”

Esther “Miss Neicy” Robinson works as a substitute teacher at Laurel High School, but her role with many of the district’s young people goes much further than that. The Lewes native’s purpose in life has become about positively impacting the lives of as many of her teenage students as possible.

“Miss Neicy” doesn’t participate in Laurel’s official mentoring program, but she’s probably the most popular and best liked mentor the district has to offer. Students at the high school seem to relate to her – she gives out more hugs in one day than most people give in a month or more. It is her way of communicating, her way of showing love and affection to a group of teens who may be looking for love in all the wrong places – it’s her way of showing she cares. The message comes through in resounding fashion. “I just tell them that there are other choices in life, and most of them seem to listen to me,” she says. “I tell them that they need to figure out what it is they want to do with their lives. They just cling to me and I cling right back to them.”

Robinson has worked with kids who have difficult home lives, with some who are confused and with a few who have become parents at a very young age. She realizes she can’t win every battle, but that doesn’t stop her from trying. “It hurts to see some of them, but you just can’t fix everything, no matter how hard you try,” she admits. “But I can still let them know that there’s hope, no matter how bad things seem.” She can’t change the lives of everyone she comes in contact with, but it’s the ones she does get through to, the times when she does have a positive impact, that she remembers most. When she thinks of “her” kids, that old familiar smile returns to her face and she dotes on her subject for what often seems Continued to page nine

like an eternity. She’s as proud as if she actually was the child’s biological mother. She likes to talk about one teenage girl who’s life she helped turn around just this year, a young lady who now comes by to visit on occasion, is holding down a job and even goes to church with her every now and then. Her future is now much brighter than it was a year ago, thanks in part to “Miss Neicy.”

Says Robinson: “She’s just starting to do more positive things and is asking more questions about how to involve herself in other activities, which is good.” Esther “Miss Neicy” Robinson moved to Laurel in 1986 and has spent the last 24 years trying her best to make a difference in the lives of young people throughout western Sussex County. She teaches, she mentors, she comforts and she supports – but most of all, she “keeps it real.”

Fifty-two percent of drivers said they feel less safe on the roads now than they did five years ago, according to the thirdannual 2010 Traffic Safety Culture Index just released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The leading reason cited by American drivers was distracted driving, with 88 percent of motorists rating drivers who text and email as a very serious threat to their safety. The study showed that the majority of drivers (62 percent) feel that talking on a cell phone is a very serious threat to safety, but they do not always behave accordingly or believe that others share these views. In fact, nearly 70 percent of those surveyed admitted to talking on their phones and 24 percent said they read or sent text messages or emails while driving in the previous month. To help change the current culture of complacency, the AAA Foundation and AAA are holding their second annual Heads Up Driving Week: Try it for a week, do it for life, from Sept. 26-Oct. 3, to generate awareness of the safety risks of distracted driving and to encourage drivers to eliminate their distractions behind the wheel. Motorists are encouraged to sign a pledge to drive distraction-free during Heads Up Driving Week with the goal to permanently reduce their distracted driving behaviors. To learn the facts about distracted driving, sign the pledge and/or

view tips on how to eliminate distractions, visit www.AAAFoundation.org/headsup. As part of AAA’s commitment to improving highway safety for all road users, the auto club launched a legislative campaign in 2009 to ban texting while driving in all 50 states. AAA’s national legislative campaign has helped lead 11 more states to enact laws against this risky driving behavior this year, bringing the total to 30 states and the District of Columbia. On the local level in Delaware, AAA Mid-Atlantic supported the passage of House Schedule 1 to House Bill 229, which prohibits texting while driving and the use of handheld cell phones while operating a motor vehicle, however, it allows for the use of hands-free cell phones. Governor Markell signed the bill into law on July 7, and it will go into effect on Jan. 2, 2011.

‘World record chunk’ at Apple Scrapple Festival By Lynn R. Parks

The old scrapple-chunking record, set several years ago by Charlie Gibbs of near Bridgeville, was shattered Saturday. Mark Dufendach sent his five-pound block of scrapple 127 feet, 9 feet longer than Gibbs’ longest throw. “Folks, we have a new record!” organizer Rob Perciful announced to the small crowd at the chunking, a signature part of Bridgeville’s annual Apple Scrapple Festival. Because the event is the only known scrapple chunking in the world, Dufendach’s record is the world record, Perciful added. Dufendach’s son, Andrew, ran from the crowd and leaped into his dad’s arms. Dufendach used a unique style to propel the block of spiced meat. He stood well back from the throwing line then ran toward the line, turning in large, graceful circles as he went. The scrapple, released from his hand, soared in a high arc across the yard behind Woodbridge High School. Dufendach and his co-competitors weren’t the only people throwing things at the two-day festival. Sussex County councilman Mike Vincent of Seaford won the annual mayor’s invitational Scrapple Sling. And 44 women participated in the festival’s first-ever ladies’ skillet toss, using a variety of styles to throw 3 and ½-pound iron skillets. “We are always looking for something new for the festival,” said skillet toss organizer Rita Hovermale. “I saw the national skillet toss competition on television and thought that we could give it a whirl.”

Demo Carros, also of Wilmington, and son-in-law Dan Strumpf, who lives in Villanova, Pa. Bercaw had difficulty picking out one part of the festival as being his favorite; he finally settled on the fried oyster sandwiches and the classic car show. Carros just was happy to get to visit the Apple Scrapple Festival, he said. “Last year for my 80th birthday, I got an Apple Scrapple T-shirt,” he added. “This year, my present was that I got to actually be here.” Early Saturday afternoon, Bercaw, Carros and Strumpf were among the several hundred spectators for the ladies’ skillet toss. “This is very interesting,” Carros said. Strumpf was confused as to why the iron skillets weren’t going farther. “All I know is, it must be harder than it looks,” he said.

The women were divided by age into two categories, 18 to 40 and 41 and older. Maria Aldave of Catonsville, Md., competed in the older category. “I read about this online and I knew that I had to get in on it,” she said. “This will be a story to tell my friends.” Aldave, who used to pitch in a fastpitch softball league, had what she described as “lofty goals” for her first skillet toss. “I’d like to go beyond 60 feet,” she said. But her first throw went only 30 feet and her second 45 feet, well short of the more than 60 feet thrown by winner Jennifer Haines.

In light of her defeat, will Aldave go home to Catonsville and practice so that she can do better next year? “I doubt it,” she said, laughing. “Anyway, I don’t cook. I’m not sure that I even own a skillet.” This was the 19th year that Bridgeville has held the festival, designed as a way to highlight agriculture in the area and to draw visitors to the small town. Tens of thousands of people crowded onto Bridgeville’s streets Friday evening and all day Saturday, enjoying a car show, live entertainment and craft shows. Politicians handed out stickers and food booths, selling everything from scrapple sandwiches to apple dumplings, did a brisk business. Ron Spriggs from Dover has been at every Apple Scrapple Festival, he said, selling treats including deep-fried whole onions. “I always do really well,” he said. “I have 500 pounds of onions and I expect to sell them all.” At the Woodbridge Band Boosters stand, Woodbridge High School band director Bob Lewis was frying up scrapple. Vicki Nechay, boosters president, was helping to make scrapple sandwiches. “We’ve got 900 pounds of scrapple,” Lewes said. “And that will probably all be gone by Saturday afternoon; at least, we’re hoping.” On Friday evening, Martin Miller of near Greenwood said that he intended to do his part to help the boosters. “I’ll probably have a couple scrapple sandwiches and a couple oyster sandwiches,” he said. David Bercaw of Wilmington traveled to Bridgeville with his father-in-law,

Seaford Fall Ag Festival Continued from page one

If square dancing, clogging and all the other activities make you hungry or thirsty, don’t rush off. Food vendors will be on hand with pulled pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, apple dumplings, hot Belgium waffles and plenty of beverages, including apple cider. The festivities will be kicked off Saturday at 10 a.m. by Gov. Jack Markell, Miss Delaware, Delaware Ag Secretary Ed Kee and others. On stage throughout both days a number of bands are scheduled. Saturday’s lineup includes Charlie Paparella of WBOC, Tony Windsor, the Whirl Away Square Dancers, Buddy Millman, the Out of the Blue bluegrass band and a “Seaford’s Got Talent Showcase” featuring Ronnie Allen, Mikki Maden, Jack Mears, Annie Darden, Norman Poole, Nick Grassett, Gerald Butler, Theresa Allen and sisters Claire Melvin and Phyllis Pearson. Sunday’s activities will begin with an Old Country Church Service on stage at 10, featuring The Gospel Gents. Craig Banks and the Good News Band will follow at 11 and Tony Windsor will be back on stage at noon. Ag Pageant Queens will be introduced at 12:30, with Buddy Millman appearing again at 1 p.m. Brett Jones, Darren Jones, Tom Kaufman, Bob Allen, Theresa Allen and Bill West will then perform a “Tribute to Country Music, Then & Now.” The Bo Dickerson Band will wrap up the afternoon.

Activities have spilled over to the library where there will be cooking demonstrations and discussions with young (new) and would-be farmers about their interest in agriculture. Special events are scheduled every evening of the preceding week, including movies, a history of the mansion and a discussion of “Where Have our Farmers Gone?” On Friday, old-timers will gather around a game of checkers, as they might have in an old country store, and tell stories of their youth. A corn maze planted in anticipation of the festival also will open early. Visitors may venture through the maze on the mansion grounds all weekends in October from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The Boys and Girls Club will conduct a scary maze on Oct. 29 and 30. Admission is free; however, donations are appreciated, and if you fill out a card and drop it into the old butter churn, you will be eligible for a drawing for a basket valued at more than $500. The Seaford Historical Society, which asked a committee of community volunteers to make arrangements for the festival, will be selling t-shirts and hats. For more information, call Breeding at (302) 629-3964. See next week’s Seaford and Laurel Star newspapers for a program featuring all the activities of the Fall Ag Festival.

A public referendum on the proposed annexation of the Moose Lodge property on alternate U.S. 13 will be Monday, Oct. 18. Voting will take place in city hall from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Members of the lodge are requesting annexation in order to be able to hook up to the city’s water system. The building is being renovated after

part of it collapsed this winter during a snowstorm and the state fire marshal’s office is requiring that a sprinkler system be installed. Without access to city water, the lodge would be required to put up a water tower. Residents of the city, as well as property owners, are allowed to vote. For additional information, call city hall, 629-9173.

Mellie, an avid golfer, belonged to golf leagues at the Seaford Golf and Country Club and the Caroline Country Club, in Denton, Md. where she was active in and often chaired many charitable golf events. To her, golf was more than a recreational sport, it was the place where she met, visited with, and enjoyed those she loved; friends and family will long remember Mellie’s golf game, and some will remember her educational work. But it was the determination, wit, generosity, and loyalty to her personal sense of ethics that Mellie brought to everything she did that made her such a memorable woman. Mellie will be long remembered and much missed by all who knew and loved her. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Seaford, Friday, Oct. 15th at 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Tunnell Caner Center, 18947 John J.

William H. Eisenbrey, 94

William Howard “Ike” Eisenbrey peacefully departed this life on Friday, Oct. 15, 2010. He was affectionately known as “Ike” by his fellow Dupont associates.

In September 1939, he joined the E. I. Dupont Co. in Seaford, working in the construction of the world’s first nylon plant. Then in January 1941, he joined the United States Army, #212 Service Company, 47th infantry, 9th division. He served with honor in both the African and European theaters of war, particularly in Sicily and North Africa. He remained in the Army until 1945. On May 24, 1942, Howard married Grace Mary Hufnal of Dover. They had a wonderful marriage for 68 years. Together, they had six children, Dennis Eisenbrey, Diane Eisenbrey, Donald Eisenbrey, Deborah Eisenbrey, Beverly Eisenbrey (deceased) and Judith Eisenbrey. In 1953, Grace and Howard purchased an original Sussex County farmhouse. He worked evenings and days off to renovate the farmhouse to raise his family near the Dupont Nylon Plant. He also started a lawn mower repair business in the 1960s and continued to work until his heart surgery in 1999. Howard retired from E. I. Dupont Co. in 1979. During his retirement years, How-

THE BROKEN CHAIN We little knew the day that God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, but in God we put our trust. In times as difficult as this, faith is such a must. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. -- Ron Tranmer

SHS holds SADD/YELL Highway Safety Convention By Amber Morrison, Destini Kinchen and Miranda Armiger Seaford High School

On Friday, Sept. 17, Seaford High School’s NJROTC hosted a convention promoting safe techniques on the road. Amber Morrison, Destini Kinchen and Miranda Armiger had the opportunity to interview many of the participants. The vendors we had the chance to talk to were Peggy Koster of The Delaware Equine Council, Corporal Little and James Gooch with The Seaford Police, and Merna Lehnard with the Disability Awareness Group.

Interview with the Disabilities Group We also had the opportunity to interview Bill and Denise McCafferty, who are both disabled. Bill was born extremely near sighted; as he got older his eyesight became worse. He had 14 operations throughout his lifetime and his doctors told him he would unfortunately at one point in life go completely blind. In December of ’89, he went completely blind. The doctor explained his blindness by the detachment of the retina. He has coped with blindness through Braille and technology that will speak to him. When Bill and Denise were married, Bill told us having another person in the home helps him immensely. Denise, on the other hand, was born with cerebral palsy; the doctors explained to her that after she was born she had a stroke that affected the lower right side of her brain. This part of

her brain influenced her ability to walk. She is capable of using her legs but with the support of crutches because her brain doesn’t function the correct way, which makes her center of balance off. When she isn’t able to use her crutches, she has a wheelchair to aide her. Bill and Denise McCafferty attended the Highway Safety Convention to share with people the importance of safe techniques around people with disabilities. Many new technologic advances have been created to help the disabled community be safer and have an easier way of life. For example, the cross walks have

been automated for blind people, so they know when they are able to cross and how long they will have. Much of today’s technology has been geared to help those who are disabled. Bill told us he was recently involved in an accident where he and his guide dog were hit by a driver who was talking on his phone. They told us that the man who hit him will have to live with the guilt of injuring a disabled person. The message they were promoting was “share the road.” As we departed, we had a change of perspective and left with a new outlook on driving safety.

noticed the motorcycles glimmering in the sun. We asked what they would be used for. Cpl. Little explained to us they were used in enforcing highway safety, for parades and for escorting officers, such as Chad Spicer. As our conversation neared an end, James Gooch told us, “If I can help save one person’s life, 20 years is most definitely worth it.” Both officers were full of information and provided us with a new outlook on police officers as well as highway safety.

They were outside Seaford Senior High School on Friday, Sept. 17, for the promotion of highway safety to let students know that safety is no joke. Cpl. Little and James Gooch explained to us what SADD/YELL stands for. They explained SADD means Students Against Drunk Driving and YELL stands for Youth Eliminate Loss of Life. Cpl. Little and James Gooch said they can’t stress enough to students who drive or will be driving in the near future, that seat belts are the devices that save the most lives. Both officers said, “Why are police officers always perceived as the bad guy?” Cpl. Little told us that police officers are not out to ticket people for no reason; they are just enforcing the safety on the road. As we looked around their display, we

MOVING?

The Delaware Equine Council As our interviewing trio stepped into the dew covered grass early on a Friday morning at Seaford High School, a Haflinger pony’s ears perked up in hopes of a treat as we neared. Peggy Koster, of the Delaware Equine Council, introduced herself as the vice president of the agency and she began to explain what the DEC’S mission is. In our conversation, she asked that people take caution around horse trailers and loose horses, as well as the Amish horse and buggies. We learned there was an accident involving a horse and buggy where the driver was killed and the passenger was seriously injured due to a careless driver, something the Highway Safety Convention hopes to prevent. Many people know little about the Delaware Equine Council. The DEC offers equestrians with contacts, education and information about the vast equine society. Also, they offer a scholarship program to those interested in going into an equine related career. They request that all applicants write an essay explaining how they plan to “Further the Equine Industry.” Certificates are awarded to the applicants in March. Numerous people have been granted these scholarships, in hopes of bettering the equine industry. As our discussion came to an end the pony gave a small whinny as a farewell, and Ms. Peggy Koster wished us luck in our interviewing extravaganza.

Health Dr. Wingate appointed to commission

Michael Wingate, MD, FACS, of Seaford, recently received a three-year appointment as cancer liaison physician for the cancer program at Nanticoke Memorial. These physicians are an integral part of cancer programs accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC). Dr. Wingate is a member of the multidisciplinary cancer committee at Nanticoke Memorial. Cancer liaison physicians are responsible for spearheading CoC initiatives within their cancer program; collaborating with agencies, such as the American Cancer Society (ACS); and facilitating quality improvement initiatives utilizing data submitted to the CoC’s National Cancer Database. The cancer liaison physician works with the cancer program staff to facilitate the submission, presentation, use and interpretation of NCDB data. Analyzing and sharing these data with the cancer committee can have a positive impact on cancer patient care at the facility.

Mammography Van back on the road

The Women’s Mobile Health Screening van, newly retrofitted with state-of-the-art digital mammography equipment, was rededicated on Oct. 4 at Legislative Hall in Dover. State Senator Nancy Cook and the Delaware General Assembly sponsored the upgrade. The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC) manages and operates the van, which provides free or reduced cost mammograms to eligible uninsured or underinsured women. Digital technology (Hologic Lorad Selenia) replaced x-ray film equipment on the 2002 Airstream Commercial medical vehicle. Digital technology provides greater image resolution, while allowing health providers to access mammograms from any workstation. Digital records are also easier to store. The Delaware Cancer Consortium recommends annual clinical breast exams for all women, with mammograms by age 40, and annual mammograms and clinical breast exams afterwards. Women at greater risk for breast cancer may need earlier and more frequent screenings, and should discuss those options with their doctors. For more information about arranging

a screening mammogram, call DBCC at 1-888-672-9647 weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Van staff works some Saturdays and early evenings. Women should have a mammography prescription from their doctor and if possible, a copy of their previous mammogram films for comparison. Van staff will help those without a prescription or a primary care provider.

How to stop bullying in schools

By Dr. Anthony Policastro There have been several high profile stories in the news recently about young people who committed suicide because of school bullies. Some of these suicides were related to teasing about the student being gay. Some were about the student being foreign and not fitting in. Another was about a student with a learning disability. One suicide involved a girl who was criticized on the Internet. I wrote about this almost two years ago. Here it is in the news again and we have not made great strides since that time. Ellen Degeneres blasted the situation on her television show and there have been outcries from other prominent individuals. Unfortunately, we have all played a role. Like any situation, this one is comprised of many factors. Bullies have been around for years and teens have always teased other teens. What do we need to do now as members of a community who don’t want to see the same thing happen here? The first step is something I mentioned in last week’s column. It starts with self esteem. One of the top priorities for parents is to make sure their child has a good feeling about themselves. Kids need to build self esteem which is often through the activities parents allow their child to participate in. However, there is more to it than that. A child needs to know that their parents love them and this is usually clear in their actions. You have to walk the walk. Children will know what you really mean no matter what you say. One of the things that I teach parents about discipline is that they need to praise their child for something a minimum of six times a day. I referred to this in a recent column as well. As a rule children with good self esteem are less affected by comments from their peers than those with poor self esteem. This is the place for every parent to start. The next step is for the community to let the schools know that there will be zero tolerance for bullying in schools and this has to be voiced at every opportunity. It needs to be part of the agenda at parent-

teacher organization meetings. It needs to be voiced at parent-teacher conferences and to school board members. When parents find out their child is being bullied, they need to let the principal know. Another important piece is for the school to put in place the same zero tolerance that parents ask for. They also need to make sure students know about it and see it in action. Schools need to make sure that any retaliation for a student who reports bullying is dealt with in a harsher manner than the initial bullying. The approach to the bully is to find the right buttons that will make him or her stop. School suspension, which some students want, is not usually the answer. Every child is different and every one of them reacts to different rewards and punishments so all bullies will not respond to the same thing. Therefore, there needs to be a range of choices so that the bully will realize that something he/she does not like is waiting at the other end. The most important step is to make sure the children being bullied are willing to tell someone about it. The old pediatric maxim about bullies is “Talk, Walk and Squawk.” Tell the bully you are going to let someone know. Walk away. Squawk to the powers that be. This (or something like it) needs to be taught in every school. Students should be able to recite it back and they should understand what it means. They should know that they need to report it even if they are only observers of the bullying. One word of caution is required. Bullying is in the eye of the beholder. Some children might make accusations when actually bullying is not really taking place. The last point is that parents need to be alert to their child’s mental state. Suicide does not occur in a vacuum. There are usually signs that things are not quite right and parents need to be alert to those signs. Bullying is certainly in the news. We need to ask ourselves whether we want to allow it to occur in our community. If the answer is no, then we need to do more than just read an article about it in the newspaper.

Hearing problems and your child By Shanda Brashears Morlet, AuD, CCC-A

It isn’t surprising to learn that our planet is becoming noisier. But would it surprise you to learn how it’s affecting our children? Hearing loss rates in kids is increasing in large part due to factors that are preventable. Approximately 10-million Americans have noise induced hearing loss or NIHL, an epidemic that Morlet is 100 percent preventable if parents teach their children early on to take the necessary precautions. NIHL is brought on by being around loud noises for long periods of time without protecting your ears. The volume of noise and proximity to the source are in a direct relationship to the amount of time it will take to affect your hearing. It’s not just listening to loud music at concerts that can hurt your child’s hearing; sirens, yard tools, parades and even earphones — especially the popular “ear buds” — are everyday sources affecting hearing loss. Here are some warning signs of NIHL: • Difficulty hearing as well as usual for several  hours after a loud event such as a concert or parade • Experiencing a buzzing or ringing sound in the  ears after a loud event • Feeling fullness, pressure, or muffled hearing  after a loud event • Asking others to talk louder so they can be  heard or understood • Speech seems muffled or far away Educate your child about things they can do to  protect their hearing. It should become as commonplace as putting on a helmet to ride their bike. • Block the noise by wearing earplugs • Avoid the noise by walking away from the  source • Turn down the sound, especially on earphones

You can also highlight good examples of people protecting their ears like racecar drivers, construction workers, or fire fighters. When their favorite bands are on TV, point out the in-the-ear monitors which, when worn properly, can conserve hearing. Sometimes an auditory problem doesn’t mean  the inability to hear, but rather the inability to process sound normally. One condition in particular has been misdiagnosed in many children as ADHD  or other types of behavioral disorders. It’s called Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) and it’s very  common, affecting 5-7% of school-age children. Kids with APD don’t have hearing loss, but they  are unable to process what they hear the same way as others. Often they don’t recognize subtle differences between sounds in words and end up having trouble understanding speech clearly, especially in noisy environments. This can lead to speech and language delays and academic problems if not diagnosed and treated properly. Symptoms of APD include: • Noisy environments upsetting your child • Your child behaves better in quiet settings • Difficulty following directions, whether simple  or complicated • Conversations are hard for your child to follow • Abstract information is difficult for your child  to comprehend. They seem to rely heavily on lip reading or other visual information While some types of hearing problems, such as NIHL, are preventable, many others can be managed with hearing aids or listening therapies. If you think your child suffers from any form of hearing problem, you should consult your primary care doctor about testing and treatment options. For more  information on hearing loss, visit Nemours’ KidsHealth.org. About the author Shanda Brashears Morlet, AuD, CCC-A, is a  senior pediatric audiologist at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington.

Yard waste disposal ban meeting on October 20 A public meeting has been scheduled on the upcoming yard waste disposal ban at Kent and Sussex County landfills and the options available  to homeowners and businesses for managing yard waste on their properties. The meeting will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, at the Georgetown Library. The meeting will include a presentation and discussion on the economic and environmental benefits of keeping yard waste out of landfills and available options for managing yard waste in the two counties, which include: • Handling it yourself by composting, including use of a mulching mower. • Arranging to have someone else manage  your yard waste either by hiring a landscaper or making arrangements to have a waste hauler remove it. • Developing a community-wide solution by  creating your town or community’s own yard waste site. Beginning Jan. 1, 2011, Delaware’s ban on  the disposal of yard waste at two landfills – the Central and Southern Solid Waste Management  Centers near Sandtown and Georgetown – goes  into effect as a way to conserve valuable landfill space and encourage the recycling of a natural resource. Operated by the Delaware Solid Waste Authority, the Kent and Sussex County landfills 

will continue to accept segregated yard waste after the ban goes into effect; however, yard waste may not be co-mingled with regular trash. Yard waste makes up nearly one fourth of the residential waste that goes into landfills and includes all plant materials resulting from lawn maintenance and landscaping activities. These include grass clippings, leaves, prunings, brush, shrubs, garden materials, Christmas trees and  tree limbs up to four inches in diameter. The yard waste ban in Kent and Sussex Counties will divert an estimated 30,000 tons of waste from the Central and Southern landfills each  year. New Castle County yard waste ban, which  went into effect Jan. 24, 2008, has diverted an estimated 50,000 tons of waste from the county’s Cherry Island Landfill each year. Diverting yard waste from disposal has multiple benefits – extending the life of landfill, protecting our environment, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions that lead to climate change. Recycling yard waste into mulch and compost provides economic and environmental benefits as well – by creating jobs, increasing the local production of commercial landscape products, and producing healthier soils and plants. For more information contact Jim Short, Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances, 302739-9403, or visit http://www.dnrec.delaware. gov/yardwaste/Pages/Default.aspx.

in love with certain toys, because no matter how many times they got broke or lost each year, I could count on getting a View Master, an Etch-a-Sketch and a Cootie Bug. I would think Mom would have grown tired of picking up various Cootie Bug body parts and sweeping up the very fine silver powder that came from the inside of the Etch-a-Sketch after the screen was broken. Things have really changed. If there had been computers when I was a youngun, I would have gone into my bedroom and not come out until I had to apply for social security. No, we had to use a great deal of imagination when it came to playing with our toys. I hear how exciting it is to play Madden NFL or HALO Reach. Compare that to a rousing game of electric football. It amazes me that we were spellbound by watching these tiny plastic football players gyrate and shuffle around, powered by a vibrating metal playing field. The players went in no particular direction, wherever the vibration led them. How in the world did we actually play a game like that? There is nothing wrong with having to use your imagination when playing with toys. Sure we got carried away sometimes. Like when we put lit firecrackers in the matchbox cars to pretend they were the

victim of a mob hit. Or maybe when we put a whole roll of paper caps on a brick and banged them with a hammer. Man, what a bunch of hoople heads we were. Oh well, there will always be something special about the Christmases of our youth, no matter how primitive they may seem.

Christian Writer’s Conference

By Betty L. Ricks-Jarman

Some writers freeze up when it comes to filling a blank page with words. Overcoming writer’s block turns into a battle of the wits, with the spoils going to the winner. It takes courage to breakthrough that writer’s block mentality. There are various techniques readily at your fingertips to help guard against writer’s block and get you moving in the right direction. Attending this year’s writer’s conference can prove beneficial for aspiring writers who want to improve their writing skills. Topics of interest such as overcoming writer’s block and self-publishing will be offered among various workshops. The Vine and Vessels CWF (Christian Writers Fellowship), is the sponsor of the

2010 Christian writer’s conference, “Give Wings To Your Words,” on Saturday, Oct. 16 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Crossroad Community Church. Perhaps you want to write your memoir, a devotional, short story or a collection of poems. This conference is a good place to start. The demand for Christian writers is greater now than ever. If you feel that God has called you to write, sign up for the conference without delay. This conference was planned with you in mind and we hope that it meets your expectations. Register online at www.vineandvessels. com or mail the registration form and payment to Vine and Vessels, P.O. Box 1716, Seaford, DE 19973. For more information, contact cofounders Betty L. Ricks-Jarman at 4485939 or Joyce Sessoms at 382-9904.

IRS extension deadline is Oct. 15 October 15 is fast approaching and is a key deadline for millions of individual taxpayers who requested an extension to file their 2009 tax returns. “The IRS expects to receive as many as 10 million tax returns nationwide from taxpayers including 29,600 from Delaware filers who used Form 4868 to request a six-month extension to file their returns,” said Gregg Semanick, IRS Delaware spokesperson. “Some taxpayers can wait until after October 15 to file, including those serving in Iraq, Afghanistan or other combat zone localities and people affected by recent natural disasters.” The IRS encourages taxpayers to e-file. E-file with direct deposit results in a faster refund than by using a paper return. Elec-

tronic returns also have fewer errors than paper returns. October 15 is the last day to take advantage of e-file and the Free File program. In Delaware through September, over 284,000 filers took advantage of the benefits of electronic filing in submitting their 2009 tax returns during 2010. Free File is a fast, easy and free way to prepare and e-file federal taxes online. The Free File program provides free federal income tax preparation and electronic filing for eligible taxpayers only through the IRS.gov web site at www.irs.gov. The Free File program is available to filers with an adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less in 2009. Filers that do not qualify for Free File can also access the e-file program through the IRS.gov website.

Delightful recipes to try with the great orange globe “Amaze your friends with your knowledge of the great orange globe.” This headline enticed me into the world of The Pumpkin Nook where it’s all-pumpkin all the time. Interrupting my search for pumpkin recipes, I waded in looking for facts with which to impress. The pumpkin is a squash that originated in Central America. Seeds from related plants have been found dating back 7,000 years. Today, Antarctica is the only continent on which pumpkins aren’t grown. The pumpkin was a staple in the diet of Native Americans who introduced the gourd to the Pilgrims. The first pumpkin pies were made by filling the hollowed out shell with milk, honey and spices and then baking it. Pumpkin carving originated in the Celtic tradition. However, because there were no pumpkins in Europe, the Celts carved faces out of turnips and rutabagas. The tradition made its way here but Americans soon found that pumpkins were a lot easier to carve. Pumpkins were once used as a remedy for snakebites and were believed to eliminate freckles. Today, a number of facial and anti-wrinkle creams include pumpkin. Pumpkins have absolutely no cholesterol and are very low in salt. They contain beta carotene, a cancer and heart disease-fighting ingredient. They’re rich in potassium and Vitamin A and high in fiber. Not amazed yet? Then try these Food Network recipes below - they’re intrigu-

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the pumpkin puree in a fine sieve over a bowl; set aside to drain while you make the sauce. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, 6 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 more minutes. Add the sausage and cook until brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Pour in the wine and cook until reduced by half. Stir in the tomato sauce and herbs and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Season with salt and pepper, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the lasagna noodles and cook as the label directs. Drain and toss with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. Mix the strained pumpkin puree with the egg in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta, 1 cup mozzarella and the Romano. Build your lasagna in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish: Start with a layer of sauce, then top with a layer of noodles. Evenly spread half of the pumpkin filling, then half of the zucchini, over the noodles. Top with half of the cheese mixture and cover with some of the sauce. Repeat the layers, finishing with noodles and sauce; sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup mozza-

rella. Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 minutes, or until bubbly. Let cool 15 minutes before slicing.

Pumpkin recipes from the Gourmet Continued from page 32

Beat together the milk, pumpkin, melted butter, and melted shortening, egg and egg white, in a large measuring cup. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Whisk together to make a slightly lumpy batter. For the topping: Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and let cook until slightly browned, but still crisp, about 4 minutes. Add the maple syrup and walnuts and toss to coat. Pour and spread about 1 cup batter into the waffle iron. Cover and cook until crisp and a rich golden brown, about 7 minutes. (Try to resist the temptation to open the waffle iron too soon. Steam will puff out of the iron while the waffles cook, when this stops the waffle is cooked.) Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with the apples. *Don’t have cake flour? Mix 1 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour with 1/4 cup of cornstarch. This yields 2 cups of cake flour for your recipe. An easy way to do this is to put 2 tablespoons of the cornstarch into the bottom of a 1 cup measure, then fill to the top with flour. Sift the flour with your dry ingredients as usual.

Marlene Olson a top student

Marlene Dannenfelser Olson of Bridgeville and Forest Hill, Md., recently received an award for high honors by Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth as being one of the top students in the Olson United States of America. She is in the fifth grade. Olson earned the opportunity for recognition by participating in the academic Talent Search organized by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY). Since 1979, CTY has sought the most academically able elementary and middle school students each year and encouraged their enrollment in CTY’s annual Talent Search. Students enrolled in the Talent Search go on to test through the fall and spring. The results of these tests give families a better idea of a child’s academic talents, earn children possible recognition through CTYs awards ceremonies, and possibly qualify a student for CTY’s summer programs or distance education courses. In 2009-10, over 57,000 students worldwide participated in the Talent Searches offered through Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.

DCF Youth Philanthropy board

Twenty-two Sussex County students representing 11 area high schools have been selected to serve on the Delaware Community Foundation’s Youth Philanthropy Board (YPB) for 2010-2011. The board, along with their advisors and guests, recently convened at the University of Delaware’s Elbert N. and Ann V. Carvel Research and Education Center in Georgetown. Students who serve on the Youth Philanthropy Boards, one in each of Delaware’s three counties, learn about philanthropy and effective grantmaking, study youth issues in their neighborhoods and schools, solicit grant proposals from local nonprofit organizations seeking to impact issues identified, make site visits to see organizations’ programs at work and award grants to those they determine to be most deserving. At their opening session, Sussex County’s YPB members learned about how the United Way of Delaware creates opportunities for a good life for all Delawareans through their annual grantmaking process. The Rev. John G. Moore Sr., who serves as vice president, Resource Development and Strategic Partnerships for the United Way of Delaware, spoke about how the nonprofit focuses their efforts in three key areas - education, income and health — to improve communities. Local members of this year’s Sussex County Youth Philanthropy Board include: Rebecca Bryan, senior, Delmarva Christian High School; Molly Cain, senior, Seaford High School; Cory Cutsail, junior, Laurel High School; Jordyn Gum, senior, Delmarva Christian High School; Eryn Johnson, junior, Seaford High School; Ashley Matas, senior, Delmar High School; Kate Mullett, senior, Woodbridge High School; Joie Polite, junior, Woodbridge High School; Skylar Schirtzinger, senior, Delmar High School; Matthew Taylor, junior, Seaford High School; Casey Thomas, senior, Sussex Technical High School; and Matthew Waldman, junior, Delmar High School.

Delaware slightly behind nation in scores, but ahead in numbers

According to statistics by the College Board, the number of Delaware public school students participating in Advanced Placement (AP) continued to climb compared to last year’s results including the number of examinations taken by students and the number of scores at “3” or higher. Of the 6,436 AP examinations given to Delaware public school students, 3,299 students received a score of 3 or higher, an increase of 1.5% from 2009. The percentage of students scoring “3” or higher increased for the Asian, Mexican American, Puerto Rican and other Hispanic ethnic groups. A score of “3” or higher is usually a requirement to receive academic credit at colleges and universities. This not only saves families money but also demonstrates the academic skills that are needed to be successful in postsecondary institutions. Delaware has also extended its college readiness program to middle school students on what they need to do to become college-ready prior to entering high school. On the critical reading portion of the SAT Reasoning Test, Delaware’s students, both public and non-public, scored an average of 493, a two point decrease from last year. Nationally, students averaged a 501 on the critical reading portion of the SAT. The College Board reported that the average mathematics score of Delaware’s college-bound seniors attending the state’s

public and nonpublic schools was 495 which is a three point decrease from 2009. This year’s national average math score is 516, a one point increase from last year. For the fifth year, results were released for the writing portion of the SAT. For Delaware’s public and non-public high school seniors, the mean score for writing was 481, a three point decrease from 2009. Nationally, the average writing score was 492, a one point decrease in scores from last year. Delaware’s SAT Reasoning Test participation rate of public/private schools is 71%, well above the nation’s participation rate of 47%. As a result, Delaware’s participation rate is ranked ninth in the nation. In Delaware’s public schools, 57% of SAT Reasoning Test takers were female compared to nearly 43% males. Male test takers outscored female students in reading and math but lagged behind in writing. In response to this year’s SAT results, Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery commented, “As part of our education reform plan, we are committed to providing a college readiness test such as the SAT to all 11th graders this year. “This will eliminate a significant barrier to college acceptance for some of our students, particularly those that will be the first in their families to attend postsecondary education. “This is critical as our children and young adults need to be able to compete in an increasingly global economy after they graduate from high school.”

Delaware’s State Board adopts interim standards

To better measure the ability of Delaware’s children to succeed in a global economy, the Delaware State Board of Education recently voted to implement new interim standards that require greater mastery of core subjects to achieve a rating of “proficient.” The new scoring system will replace previous measurements that were reported each year as part of the Delaware Student Testing Program (DSTP). “Delaware had statewide measurements and standards in place for many years but it was clear they needed to be stronger to be meaningful,” Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery said. “The previous standards delivered higher scores because there was a lower bar. The new standards and new expectations will better measure what we need to do to compete and win against schools and students around the country and around the world.” Because the new standards raised the level of what constitutes “proficiency,” initial scores under this new system will likely be significantly lower than years past. Looking at fourth grade reading proficiency, for example, 76% of students have been rated proficient under the DSTP 2006 standards but based on Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System field testing results, only 48% would achieve that rating now. In math, 78% of fourth graders under the former standards would have been rated proficient but only 53% would be now. The new standards are the result of recommendations made by over 150 Delawareans who volunteered hundreds of hours to develop more rigorous expectations and measurements. “From the educators and parents, and from private sector managers and public sector school administrators in the group, there was real agreement that we should not continue to keep standards lower or

less competitive simply so we could point to higher scores,” Lowery said. Parents, students and teachers alike should understand that these lower scores do not mean students know less than they did the year before, or that they are somehow “doing worse in school,” just that the new interim standards require a higher level of mastery of information and concepts. Just like the traditional DSTP scores, the new scores will not impact a student’s grades or be reported to any colleges where a student is applying. Nor will teacher effectiveness ratings drop because of the expected drop in test scores under the new, higher standards. The scores will, however, serve to better inform parents, teachers and students of the areas that need focus for improvement. To help provide parents, students and schools some context and continuity as we move forward with this more informational rating system, the new scores using the higher proficiency standards will be accompanied by information that demonstrates how the student would have done against the old proficiency standards that were in place with the DSTP. This new effort is an important step to ensuring Delaware’s long-term economic impact and will be an important signal to companies considering Delaware as a place to expand or locate. “When talking with national and international business leaders responsible for creating jobs, they want their companies to be in places with great schools or schools that are on their way to being truly great. They want to be able to hire and provide careers to students who graduate prepared to succeed. To be clear, our competition in this regard is no longer just our neighboring states; it includes countries around the world seeking to bring those jobs to their shores,” Governor Jack Markell said.

Woodbridge commends teachers By Cathy Shufelt

The Woodbridge Board of Education took time during its September meeting to recognize the district’s most recent achievements. Among these are the elementary school’s 2010 Superior School and National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence awards, a grant supporting the district’s Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program with David Marvel Sr. being recognized for his “outstanding volunteer work” with the program, and teachers Michelle Cook (5/6th grade math) and Pam Vanderwende (5th grade science) being chosen as finalists for The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Board members and Superintendent Dr. Kevin Carson commented on their immense pride in the many and varied achievements of the district’s students, teachers and staff, and believe that the awards and recognitions will continue. They also wished Michelle Cook and Pam Vanderwende luck as they advance through the national level of the Presidential Award process. Dr. Susan Dutton, director of Student Services, reviewed the latest information on the state’s new student testing system called the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS). Students took the practice exams in May and formal testing will begin in October. There are several distinct differences between the old DSTP testing system and the new DCAS system. First, the tests are computer based, meaning that students take the test on a computer not on a paper copy. The way the tests are scored is also different, changing from a 5 point to a 4 point scale.

Dr. Dutton also told board members that new testing standards make the DCAS test more rigorous with new “cut scores’ indicating whether a student meets the standard or falls below standard. Another difference is that there are no specific dates set for DCAS testing. Instead, “windows” of time are set aside and students can take the test at any time during that window. Students will see their score immediately upon completing the test that allows teachers to adjust course content if needed. A new feature of the DCAS test is the “text to speech” function that allows students to hear the test as well as read it. DCAS testing will take place three times during the 2010-2011 school year and four times during the 2011-2010 school year. Dutton reviewed the preparations that district officials have engaged in to prepare themselves for overseeing DCAS testing and answered questions from board members. “We are ready,” said Dutton. Superintendent Kevin Carson informed board members that recent retiree Nurse Gail Short has been working with Delaware Technical and Community College (DTCC) to create a Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) program at Woodbridge High School. The program will combine the med-tech program at the high school with the program at DTCC, and allow Woodbridge High School graduates to earn their C.N.A. certification upon graduation. “Ms. Short has been working hard on behalf of students at Woodbridge for many years, and it seems as though she will continue to do so through this program as well as the program at DTCC,” said Carson.

Newspapers broaden horizons by introducing students to new people, places and ideas. By encouraging our youth to read the newspaper, you’ll encourage a lifelong habit of learning. Joining Pastors Allen Miller of the Community Church of Oak Orchard and Ouemonde Brangman of New Zion A.M.E. Church, DCHS Principal Scott Kemerling, and DCHS students Andrew Hazzard, Maegan Bourne, Kayla Burd and Mallary Gum, are DCHS social studies teacher Mr. Eddy Jones and DCHS parent Charles Williams.

DCHS comes together in prayer

From a distance, it was hard to determine what was occurring within the groups of individuals who huddled in small circles around the front lawn of Delmarva Christian High School on Sept. 21. Once in earshot, you could hear that they had gathered for a very specific purpose. “At the beginning of the school year, in conjunction with the national event of See You at the Pole, we come together for our own See You at the Cross during which we pray for our community and nation,” said Principal Scott Kemerling. Over 200 students, parents, teachers, pastors, and community members raised their voices to pray for local and national leaders, for local Christian and public schools leaders, for students and for families.

This year, special prayers were also said for the family of Bob Burris, one of the school’s founding fathers and staunchest supporters. He died on Sept. 19 after a long battle with cancer. See You at the Cross is part of a national day of faith that began in 1990 when Christian students at public schools fought for the right to pray at their school’s flagpole. The idea of See You at the Cross is to connect DCHS students and staff with the larger body of Christ so that they can stand strong together throughout the year. This year’s event coincided with a ministerial breakfast hosted by DCHS that drew pastors from across Sussex and Kent County.

For the 13th year Morning Star Publications is placing copies of the Seaford and Laurel Star newspapers in our local schools. Thanks to the generosity of civic minded citizens, businesses and organizations, we are able to place newspapers in local classrooms. By supporting Newspapers in Education, you can help today’s youth develop a lifelong habit of staying informed about the world around them.

Historical Society partners with elementary schools and assisted students with the activities in both the spring and fall. They also acquired the seed from a local farmer and the fish heads from a local business. Next

Through a partnership with the Seaford Historical Society, fifth grade students at Central Elementary and West Seaford Elementary recently harvested field corn grown in their schools’ courtyards. The schools donated the corn to the Historical Society for use in their corn sheller during student tours at the Ross Plantation. The corn stalks were cut and bundled together and now decorate the front of each school for the fall season. Last spring as fourth graders, these students planted corn to enrich their science unit on plant life cycles. Some of the corn was planted in mounds using fish heads as fertilizer, like American Indians taught the colonists. During their outdoor lessons, students not only expanded their science and social studies learning, but they also differentiated between math terms such as radius, diameter and circumference. Students then used their measuring skills to plant the corn in rows, like farmers use automated planters today. Members of the Seaford Historical Society Education Committee, Sue Breeding and Bonnie Van Tine, planned the lessons

Central Elementary fourth grade students use rulers and teamwork to measure the distance between seeds and rows.

Students at West Seaford bury fish heads as fertilizer for their corn. Circular mounds were used during the Colonial Period.

Fifth graders at Central Elementary harvest their field of corn after discussing why some corn grew better.

spring, when fourth graders from the two schools tour the plantation, they will shell some of the corn grown in their courtyards. It’s a win-win partnership!

Fifth graders at Central Elementary display the corn they raised in their courtyard. They donated the corn to the Seaford Historical Society for use in their corn sheller at the Ross Plantation during school trips and other special events.

Students proudly display the corn they raised and harvested in their courtyard at West Seaford. They are excited their school’s fourth graders will use their corn in the corn sheller at the Ross Plantation next spring during their field trip to learn about life on a plantation in the mid 1800s.

Defense dominates play in Blue Jays’, Raiders’ 0-0 overtime tie By Gene Bleile

Most fans know that a good offense wins games, but a great defense wins championships. Well last Thursday afternoon for 70 minutes the Lady Blue Jays, playing on home turf, and the visiting Lady Blue Raiders put on a defensive battle that equaled a championship game and ended in a frustrating 0-0 overtime tie. The Jays started the game with the wind and sun in their faces and controlled the ball for most of the first half between mid-field and the circle in front of the Blue Raiders cage, but couldn’t cash in

on a couple of quality shots against the Woodbridge goalie, Caitlin Blades. “I was pleased with our play in the first half, but we need to put two halves together and work on getting more quality shots, head coach Alison Venables said after the game. “We cut down on our defensive corners and that was something we have worked on and wanted to do.” “We have a lot of talent on this team, but sometimes it seems like there is an invisible shield around the opposing goalie’s circle,” she said. “We need to consistently penetrate the circle and finish with a good Continued on page 45

Homecoming for Seaford Blue was not the kind of evening the varsity football team hoped for when the Lake Forest Spartans came to play at Bob Dowd Stadium. The evening began with the annual Homecoming parade and floats, but when the Spartans took the field it was like a tornado that left a path of destruction when Lake Forest piled on 55 points to beat Seaford, 55-6. Lake Forest took first possession and on the second play of the game the Spartans’ Quadir Bryant ran 50 yards for a touchdown. The extra point was blocked by Jason Owens and at 11:10 in the first quarter the Blue jays were down 6-0. On the kick return, Dominique Horsey fumbled the ball, dropped it, and recovered it at the 11 yard line. On the snap, the ball was fumbled but again covered by the Blue Jays and the ball was eventually punted to Lake Forest. The Spartans took over on the 40 yard line and with five minutes left in the first quarter, quarterback Shymer Hanzer threw for a completed pass inside the 15 yard line. The Blue Jays’ defensive line was

unable to make the tackle, allowing the Spartans to push straight through the middle for a touchdown and a 13-0 lead. In the second quarter, Turnage connected with Jason Owens who was hit at the line of scrimmage for no gain. The hand off to Aquarius White helped the Blue Jays move in the right direction to the 44 yard line, but Turnage was sacked for a loss forcing the punting team on to the field. The Spartans’ next possession put the Blue Jays down when Bryant bulldozed his way through the defense from the four yard line. The Spartans would strike one more time before half-time when at 5:42 on the clock, Turnage took a hard hit just as he released the ball and it was intercepted. The score climbed to 27-0 less than two minutes later on another drive by the Spartans. In the third quarter, the Blue Jays had some life when the Spartans were penalized with a personal foul, giving Seaford the 15 yard first down. Turnage again connected with Jason Owens who went deep and pulled it in on the one yard line, but it Continued on page 45

Sussex Tech pulls away from Delmar in final minutes of soccer game By Mike McClure The Sussex Tech boys’ soccer team came away with a 3-1 win over Delmar in last Thursday’s game in Delmar, but it wasn’t until the final couple minutes of the match that the Ravens could breathe easy. Delmar got on the board first when James Whaley headed the ball in on a corner kick by Carl VanGessel with 22 minutes left in the first half. Sussex Tech’s Dustyn Beebe, Michael Rhone, and Aris Reynoso saw their shots sail wide of the goal while Delmar goalie Thomas Gray made a save on a shot by Jacob Williams. Ryan Moore found the goal for the Ravens with around five minutes left in the first half to tie the game. Zach Williamson, Josh Walstead, and Moore could not find the net in the final minutes of the first half and the score remained knotted at 1-1. The Ravens kept firing shots on goal in the second half with Anson Marsh’s shot bouncing off the cross bar off a feed from Zimri Gomez. Gray made four saves before Rhone scored on a header off a corner kick by Beebe with about 17 minutes left in the match. Williams sealed the game with a goal in the final two minutes for a 3-1 Sussex Tech win.

Lee nets goal on penalty kick to lead Seaford to 1-0 win Seaford’s Ethan Lee netted a goal on a penalty kick with three minutes left in the first half of last Thursday’s game against Lake Forest. Lee’s goal was the only score of the game as the Blue Jays picked up a 1-0 win. Christian Gosnell recorded five saves for Seaford, which held a 26-9 advantage in shots.

Seaford boys’ soccer team shows improvement in 3-0 win By Lynn Schofer The Seaford varsity boys’ soccer team continues to improve and strengthen each time they play. Last Tuesday’s 3-0 win over Sussex Central helped their confidence. Team co captain Ethan Lee started the assault when he provided the assist to striking partner and co-captain Dustin Venables for a 1-0 lead at the 12th minute of play. Seaford maintained control throughout the game but found themselves chasing after the opponent a few times. Coach Tim Lee said, “A nice consistent game, they didn’t play great but we maintained control and possession most of the game.” Seaford’s Ethan Lee put the second point up for the Blue Jays on a direct kick at the 22nd minute mark. At the 28th minute and with the momentum on Seaford’s side, Lee pushed past Sussex Central and rifled the ball just out of the reach of goalie Andrew Rutter. The half played out with Seaford leading 2-0. In the second half of play Seaford goalie Christian Gosnell showed his leadership in the net by diving to make the stop at the 56th minute to keep Sussex Central off the scoreboard. Less than seven minutes later Gosnell stopped a line drive by going to his knees and scooping the ball up for one of his 10 saves on the night. In the final two minutes of play, Zak Parks dribbled around opponents and made the pass to Lee who finished with his second goal of the night to put Seaford up, 3-0. Coach Lee said he was happy with the team’s performance, “It is nice to have the two wins in a row and give us some confidence.” Coach Lee also notches his 198th career win and will now head to Lake Forest and Laurel hoping to get the 200th win. Seaford finished the game with nine shots and seven corners. Ethan Lee had two goals and one assist, Venables netted one goal, and Parks added an assist.

Seaford cross country teams go 1-1 against Lake Forest The Seaford boys’ cross county team topped Lake Forest, 15-50, while the girls were edged by the Spartans, 23-34, last Wednesday in Harrington. Seaford’s Pierre Mondestin placed first (18:37), Jacques Jules was fourth (19:13), and Esaie Derolus came in fifth (20:33) against Lake Forest. Tynetta Washington placed first (23:15), Uri Rebolledo was fifth (23:57), and La’Shyra Williams came in seventh (25:13) for the Lady Jays.

Laurel Pop Warner Midget team extends winning streak The Laurel Midgets continued their regular season win streak with a 33-0 victory over Milford, extending the streak to 95 games. The Bulldogs clicked in all phases of the game. Seth Sprague continually kicked the ball deep pinning Milford deep in their own territory as the stingy defense forced three and outs, and then short punts by Milford resulted in short fields for the offense. Despite playing on a short field most of the day, the Bulldogs had over 300 total yards of offense, with Jerron Tull accounting for two scores, followed by Ben Miller, Amari “the Bus” Cannon, and Johnny McGinnis with a touchdown each. The defense held Milford’s offense in check all day except for a late drive in the fourth quarter which ended when Cannon, from his defensive tackle position, sniffed out the screen play and intercepted a pass turning the ball over to the offense which then ran out the clock. The Bulldogs look to improve to 7-0 on the season this Saturday morning at 11 in Smyrna.

Raiders fall to Indians, 34-32, in final seconds of a close contest By Daniel Richardson

In a game that remained close until the final seconds, the visiting Wicomico Indians defeated the Woodbridge Raiders, 34-32, on Friday, October 8. The Indians went up 7-0 early in the first quarter, but the Raiders managed to get into scoring position by the end of the quarter. On the opening play of the second quarter, quarterback C.J. Pleasants threw a 13-yard pass to fullback Trez’mon Kane, giving Woodbridge a first and goal on the one yard line. Pleasants’ quarterback sneak on the next play resulted in the Raiders’ first touchdown. The extra point by kicker Brent Adams tied the score at 7-7. The Indians answered with a two-yard touchdown run by fullback Dontea Ayers with 2:40 left in the half. Tyler Lewis’ extra point and a field goal scored on the Indians’ next drive put them up 17-7 at the end of the first half. On the Raiders’ first drive of the second half, Pleasants threw a 12-yard pass to Freddie Sample. A late hit on the play gave the Raiders a first and goal on the Indians’ seven yard line. Sample capitalized on the good field position with a five-yard touchdown run two plays later. Adam’s extra point brought the Raiders within three of the Indians. After two uneventful drives, Woodbridge was able to pin Wicomico on their own one yard line, and score a safety on the next play making the score 17-16 with six minutes left in the third. A 48 yard run by Ayers put the Indians on the Raiders’ seven yard line. Three Woodbridge penalties gave the Indians a first and goal on the two yard line and Ayers again ran in for a touchdown. Lewis’ extra point put the Indians up 24-16. The Raiders answered on their next possession with another touchdown run by Sample. A quick pass to Trez’mon Kane

Seaford football continued was called back on a Blue Jay false start. Determination paid off when Turnage once again went to Owens who ran a route to the right side of the end zone and scored a touchdown. Lake Forest came right back and with 5:43 left in the third quarter, Bryant scored by jumping over the tackle and ran 20 yards for a touchdown. By the end of the third quarter Lake Forest held a 41-6 lead on yet another run by Bryant. In the fourth quarter, Lake Forest ran outside routes forcing Seaford to chase

and an already fatigued defense just could not stop the Spartans who scored another touchdown, making it 48-6. On the next Seaford possession Raheem Cannon gave the Blue Jays a first down when he used the open space and ran through the middle, but a dropped pass would force Seaford to punt the ball. The snap was too high and went over the head of the punter and Lake Forest recovered the ball and ran it into the end zone for the final score of game and a 55-6 win. Seaford will try to regroup and focus on next week’s match up with Woodbridge.

On the Indians’ next possession, Ayers scored a touchdown on a 40-yard run, and Lewis’ extra point put them on top by seven. The Raiders responded with a 10-yard touchdown pass and a two point conversion, leaving only two minutes left in the game. Both the touchdown and two point conversion were scored by Sample, who had 31 yards receiving and 88 yards rushing during the game. Wicomico managed to get into position to score a field goal with only 10 seconds left giving them a 34-32 victory. The Indians (5-1) go on to face the Parkside Rams (3-3) next Friday, and the Raiders (2-3) will host the Seaford Blue Jays (2-3).

shot.” After the first half, the momentum shifted to the Blue Raiders and they kept the pressure on the Jays’ defense for almost 30 minutes. “Goalie Molly Cain, played the game of her life, she came out to meet the ball and blocked numerous shots, including two in the overtime period,” Venables explained. “She spent a lot of time on the ground and in heavy traffic, blocking

shots. I was proud of her effort today.” Cain finished the day with 15 saves, including two in heavy traffic, during the 10 minute overtime period, while her counter-part, Blades, also had an outstanding defensive game for the Blue Raiders, blocking four shots, with one critical save in overtime. The final stats went in the book as follows; the Lady Raiders had 21 shots on goal, 10 corners and three saves, while the Jays finished with six shots on goal, three corners and 15 saves.

Sussex Tech teams to participate in Dig Pink rally Oct. 19

The Sussex Tech JV and varsity girls’ volleyball teams are joining thousands of teams from around the country by participating in the Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink National Breast Cancer Awareness rally. High school and college teams will promote breast cancer health education in the community as well as raise funds for further research. Dig Pink events give spectators the opportunity to become involved by making donations to the cause and by pinking out the events (wearing pink to show their support). Admission will be $4 or $2 for those wearing pink. Dig Pink event t-shirts will be sold for $10 at the event. Sussex Tech’s event will take place Oct. 19 when the Ravens host Indian River. The JV game will take place at 4 p.m. followed by the varsity game at 5:30 p.m. Before, during, and after the volleyball match there will be many special events such as an educational table provided by the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, a PINK bake sale, several raffles including a Vermont Teddy Bear, and a “Serve it to Win it Game” where participants can win prizes just by serving the ball. The proceeds from all donations will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a national nonprofit organization located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Gas Lines

Gasoline prices saw significant increases last week in conjunction with the recent movement in crude oil above the $80 a barrel mark. From a recent low point of $2.69 on September 27, the national average price of regular grade gasoline increased 9 cents to $2.78 Friday (a 3.5% increase). Crude Oil Prices Crude oil continued to trade above the $80 mark last week, due mostly in part to a weak U.S. dollar, jumping to a five-month intraday high of $84.43 last Thursday following a report that showed a significant drop in U.S. gasoline stockpiles (signaling demand could be on the rise). However, crude slipped back toward $80 early Friday, only to rebound slightly to close at $82.66.

Local pricing On Tueday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.699 to $2.799 a gallon. The low jumped 13 cents a gallon higher than a week ago and the high 10 cents higher than a week ago.

A look ahead “Motorists have undoubtedly noticed the recent spike in prices at the gas pumps this week, jumping 9 cents a gallon nationally,” said Jana L. Tidwell, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson. “When crude oil prices move above the $80 mark, as they did late last week and have remained since, it sends an immediate shock to the system. Crude oil is the biggest single component of gas prices, making up to 69 percent of the price to consumers at the pump, and when it surges gas prices follow suit.”

Seaford soccer coach Tim Lee records 200th win with victory over Laurel

By Lynn Schofer Seaford High School varsity boys’ soccer coach Tim Lee began his coaching career in 1989 at Indian River as an assistant and joined Seaford in 1990 as the volunteer assistant coach. After one year he took over the varsity program for the 1991-1992 school year. Twenty years later Coach Lee notched his 200th win on Tuesday when Seaford defeated Laurel, 9-0. Coach Lee said some of his memorable times include the 2009 conference champions, “We tied one time for the conference but last year was the first time we won outright.” Lee also said his first team brings back fond memories and the early years with many of the players. “Every year there is something special about every group,” Lee said, “Last year was the group I was closest to because I had them since they were eight years old but I really enjoy the alumni game every year.” Tim Lee is also proud that some of his players have gone on to college and had some success at the next level. “I look forward to seeing the success of players such as Kyle Shedaker, Brook Riggleman, and Trevor Lee.” Coach Lee said he coached almost everyone’s children the first 13 years and also coached his own two children the last seven years which will come to end this year when his son Ethan graduates. Reflecting back Coach Lee said, “When I first came to Seaford, it was football country and we had to fight and scrap for everything we got.” Coach said the program has come a long way from 1991 but believes there are still some battles to go for the program, “We have built a strong reputation and legacy in Delaware and when the boys leave the program I believe they have learned sportsmanship and character,” said Lee. “I hope they have a little story that is their own to walk away with as they move on.”

Police Journal Police search for Bridgeville man

Delaware State Police is searching for a Bridgeville fugitive who continues to victimize area residents. Richard T. Weston, 38, of Bridgeville, is wanted on three separate warrants from Sept. 14, Oct. 2 and Oct. 4. Delaware State Police investigated a burglary reported on Oct. 4, which occurred between Sept. 14 and 21. Richard T. Weston is alleged to have forced open a door on the 21000 block of Mill Park Drive, Bridgeville. Weston damaged the door frame, entered the residence and stole $4 cash. On Oct. 2, Delaware State Police investigated a domestic complaint which involved Weston. Weston is alleged to have had a verbal argument with his mother and threatened to kill her. This crime occurred on Raven Circle, Bridgeville. The third incident Weston is alleged to have committed was on Monday, Oct. 4. During this burglary, Weston broke the residence door off the hinges by kicking it multiple times. The 54-year-old victim advised Weston rummaged through various medications but only stole a kerosene heater from the residence. The victims in the burglary investigations were not home at the time of the crimes. Also on Monday, Oct. 4, Delaware State Police attempted to apprehend Weston in the Coverdale development of Bridgeville. When the trooper approached Weston in order to place him under arrest, he fled into a wooded area. Delaware LEGALS - from Page 59 and Elle L.

On Oct. 5 at 9:11 a.m., the Seaford 911 Center received a call in reference to a red Chevy Suburban with New York registration traveling southbound on Rt. 13 in an aggressive manner, weaving in and out of traffic. A Seaford Police officer observed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop in the area of Rt. 13 and Norman Eskridge Highway.

A search of the vehicle revealed 8 bags of herion bundled together in a fish food container weighing approximately 2.5 grams and .7 grams of marijuana.

Politics O’Donnell better known, but Coons is leading in the polling

Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is better known to Delaware’s likely voters than Democrat Chris Coons: 93% say they have heard of Coons, while 97% say they have heard of O’Donnell. Nonetheless, according to the most recent poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind, Coons leads O’Donnell 53% 36% in the special election. O’Donnell is in a statistical dead heat with Coons in Kent and Sussex counties, leading him 46% to 45%, But in the more populous New Castle County, Coons leads by a margin of 58% to 31%. Democrats have largely united behind Coons — 85% say that they will vote for their party’s nominee. However, only 68% of Republicans say that they will vote for O’Donnell. Independents lean to Coons by 46% to 37%. “Typically, Republicans are more loyal to their party than Democrats,” said Dan Cassino, professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson University and survey analyst for the university’s PublicMind research group, “This hesitation by Republicans is hurting O’Donnell.” The Democrat, Coons, is running far ahead of how he might have fared against Congressman and former Gov. Mike Castle, whom O’Donnell beat for the nomination. In a hypothetical matchup between Coons and Castle, Castle coasts 50% 36% over Coons, leading in New Castle County by a 5-to-4 margin (51 % - 38%) as well as winning downstate (49% 33%). “Incumbents have traditionally done better in Delaware than in many other states,” said Cassino. “Castle is well known and liked enough across partisan groups that this would have been a very difficult race for Coons to win.” Coons is running about the same as the Democratic nominee for the House of Representatives, John Carney. As reported by FDU’s PublicMind (Oct. 5, 2010) Carney is getting 51% of the vote against 36% for Republican Glen Urquhart, who upset the primary election with his win over Michelle Rollins.

I would appreciate your support

I believe most of you feel as I do, more needs to be done to attract jobs to Sussex County. The constant rhetoric between state and county officials is leading to stalemate much like the federal government when it comes to getting anything done. Our county officials must work closely with the governor and the general assembly in order for Sussex County to get our fair share. It seems that efforts to attract prospective companies to relocate to Delaware appear to be targeted for New Castle County. We have industrial parks and vacant commercial property throughout Sussex County, with space to accommodate such companies, and a labor force eager to work. I will work with state officials to get the

The Daily Show visits Delaware

Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” focused in on Delaware during his October 6 show. First, he looked as Christine O’Donnell and her campaign ad stating that she is not a witch. Stewart said the background in the ad “happens to look like a bubbling cauldron. She also tried to connect with her critics by saying simply, ‘I’m you.’ “Really, you’re me?” Stewart asked. “Because I don’t recall the last time I had to deny I was a witch.” Stewart sent Aasif Mandvi to Delaware to show how O’Donnell’s race epitomizes the national conflict between red state and blue state, north and south.

GOP leaders express their unity

The leader of the House Republican Caucus on Sept. 20, expressed his sincere appreciation to Republican State Committee Chairman Tom Ross for his decision to remain in his leadership position as the party moves toward Republican victories in November. House Minority Leader Dick Cathcart (R-Middletown) stated, “We have an excellent slate of Republican candidates from the top of the ticket with our U.S. Senate and Congressional candidates to our statewide races for state treasurer and state auditor to our local state representative, state senate and county level candidates.” House Minority Whip Dan Short (RSeaford) stated, “Conflict and change are vital components of our political process. The recent primary election results emphasized that Republicans will not settle for ‘politics as usual.’ As we work on policies to get our economy moving again and stop the tax and spend habits of state government, I think the discontent that motivated voters last Tuesday will resonate with all citizens and win support for our Republican House candidates in November.”

Tea Party condemns Pelosi-Reid

The Independence Hall Tea Party Association recently condemned the conduct of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in the latest

session of the 111th Congress which adjourned recently without resolving the federal budget or Bush tax cut issues. “By neglecting to extend the Bush tax cuts for even the middle class, Reid, Pelosi, and their Democrat colleagues, including Patrick Murphy, Joe Sestak, Tim Holden, Paul Kanjorski, Rush Holt and Frank Pallone, have demonstrated they will raise taxes - not only on wealthier Americans, but also on middle and lower income Americans,” said Association President Teri Adams.

“And we’re all taxed enough already.” “They promised to extend the ‘middle class tax cut’ and they certainly could have, but they refused to do it,” she said. “If they won’t extend a tax cut before an election, why would they extend one afterwards?” Adams asked. “Lowering taxes stimulates economic activity and creates jobs.” “The economic growth rate for the United States (1.7%) is so sluggish that it lags behind both Europe (4%) and the United Kingdom (4.8%),” she said.

A heartwarming football game The recent article in the Star entitled, “Seaford High plays game of football at Seaford Center” as written by Lynn Parks can not begin to capture the lasting sense of joy and positive energy this event created. I mean no disrespect to Ms. Parks who is a fantastic writer but this event truly went beyond words. It was extremely heartwarming to see the enthusiasm shared and expressed by all parties during the event. When Carol Rorhbaugh, our director of assisted living, contacted Athletic Director Artie Uhlich he was quick to commit to this event. Not only did Uhlich bring the football team and cheerleading squad to Seaford Center Assisted Living, he brought some great student-athletes with fantastic attitudes. These young men and women showed no apprehension or discomfort; they jumped right in and were gracious, humble, smiling, enthusiastic and simply joyful! Frankly, there is still some debate about who actually won the relay but thankfully, this is one controversy we need not pursue. It was a wonderfully light hearted event where both teams enthusiastically tried their best to lose the competition so everyone could win the day! All of us at Seaford Center would like to send a “thank you!” to everyone involved and to the entire Seaford School District for reminding us of many of the things that are great about this next generation. Thank you and “Go Blue Jays!” Lou Kieffer

Will take chance with O’Donnell

Don Flood of Lewes critiqued Christine O’Donnell’s lack of experience in his letter to the editor, “Consider O’Donnell’s Experience” (Morning Star, Oct. 7–13, 2010). I agree. Christine O’Donnell is young, unmarried and has a rather thin resume for the U.S. Senate. However, Mr. Flood misses the point in comparing her experience to

the president’s. First, let’s consider Ms. O’Donnell. She inspired many Delaware voters and defeated the most successful candidate in recent Delaware history, Mike Castle. She did not win because of her experience but by being on the right side of the issues. Ms. O’Donnell might not be my first choice for a Senatorial candidate; however, I know that her Senate votes will reflect my values, and help preserve our Constitutional republic. As a Senator, she would be one of 100, and could be mentored by more experienced colleagues. Now, let’s consider Mr. Flood’s assessment of the president, which he provides in the context of Sarah Palin’s comment concerning his qualifications, “I guess a small town mayor is sort of like a community organizer except you have actual responsibilities.” Palin may have said it “with heavyhanded sarcasm” (Mr. Floyd’s words), but she had it right! Mr. Flood presents Obama’s resume as proof of his qualifications. He was president of the Harvard Law Review. Unfortunately, his accomplishments in that position are unknown to us. Our president has had his college records sealed. Prior to his election, the skills Obama learned as a civil rights attorney, teacher of constitutional law, three-term member of the Illinois state senate, and a U.S. Senator provided little background for being president; no leadership or private sector experience, and limited understanding of the free market economy. His foreign policy knowledge was limited to one term in the Senate. He spent most of that term running for president. In the first 19 months of his presidency we have experienced a persistent recession, lack of leadership during the Gulf oil spill crisis, and an endless round of blameAmerica speeches overseas. I agree with Mr. Flood that the president is a good husband and father, but so are millions of men out of work due to Obama’s inexperience in dealing with the economy. Being president involves making decisions that affect the course of the nation and the future of the free world, not just an ability to deliver soaring rhetoric from a teleprompter. I’ll take my chances on Christine O’Donnell. Fred Seth

Final Word Reader comments on headline, harassment and health care

Well, it has been a while now since I wrote anything for the Star. I admit to being a bit behind, as I have just now finished reading the Sept. 16 edition. Three things caught my eye and, while my comments may not be popular, I think they bear stating. Sex offender turns violent Now, with a title like that, the stage has been set to draw and quarter the malefactor. Whatever is stated thereafter is irrelevant. Being a sex offender, the person is a third class citizen with no rights and must tolerate every form of abuse. Right? Now, to achieve the illustrious title of “Tier III High Risk Sex Offender” I am presuming that the person has been incarcerated for whatever crime he committed to be labeled as such. However, he also must have served his time and thus paid his duty to society. But, our society has perversely decided that that is not sufficient punishment and thus a scarlet “S” must be emblazoned on his forehead. This, of course, makes it difficult to (1) find a place of residence and (2) obtain meaningful employment. In essence, we have a legal right to hound this person out of existence. A sex offender must be registered and report his whereabouts to the state. How frequently he must check in, I don’t know. Now, to the specific case at hand. This particular person was dating a woman and had an “unknown altercation” with her. There was no indication that the altercation was sexually related. An altercation can happen between a man and a woman, preferably not physical, but some are and certainly some are not necessarily sexual in nature. In other words, the event doesn’t appear to have had anything to do with this person’s Tier III sexual offender status. However, the woman’s daughter elected to legally (I think) harass this man by advertising his status to all of his neighbors, thus attempting to make him a pariah in his own neighborhood. Frankly, if I were placed in this position, I, too, would be rather upset. What followed was an escalation of events with the daughter, followed by police action as a result. Had the daugh-

Bridal Show at Heritage Shores

ter not attempted to blacklist her mother’s male interest, I believe none of the events that followed would have ensued. And yet, the Star chose to headline the report “Sex offender turns violent” becoming judge and jury without the need for yet another syllable. Shame on the Star. Harassment, rights violated letter Essentially on the same subject, Jack Lucia claims that he is being harassed by the police. This sounds like an abuse of power and should be investigated by an internal affairs officer or his equivalent by the Seaford Police Department or State Police, whichever is doing the harassing. Lucia, like the above person, appears to be being harassed with no particular recourse apparent. We are better than this. Final Word - National Popular vote would decrease Delaware’s influence Fred Seth has presented his case reasonably and my only disagreement is that I believe the corrections to abuses and health care reform by the Obama administration have been in the public’s interest, even if that is not readily apparent to the majority. It is an embarrassment that we have people who haven’t been able to get proper medical attention in this nation, while other nations have essentially nationalized their health care systems, assuring treatment for all. I’m afraid that we still haven’t controlled health care and health care insurance costs and that this will need to be rectified. A public option would have gone a long way toward this end, but the powers that be prevented this from happening. I am on Medicare, certainly a socialized medicine program, and am quite happy for the coverage. I just wish all citizens could have such coverage. As for being tough on business, I see in trying to regulate Wall Street an obvious need to halt the abuses that plunged us into this recession in the first place, specifically the irresponsible giving of mortgage loans to those that could not afford them. As clearly stated by David Faber of CNBC in his excellent documentary “House of Cards,” the reason that the ratings agencies gave AAA ratings to these loans was the presumption that housing prices would constantly rise.

began to fall, equity went negative for a large number of home owners, who could thus not refinance, even at today’s extremely low interest rates. Massive foreclosures ensued, destroying the housing market. People lost jobs as the economy tanked, with unemployment hovering near a constant 9.5%. And yet, business doesn’t like the new regulations. It wants the good old days of do anything to make a buck. Now we have a push to continue the Bush tax cuts, not just for those making under $250,000, but for the very wealthy as well. It will cost an extra $700 billion if this is done, while all the while the Republicans chant about an out-of-control budget deficit. They didn’t like the stimulus program which was a direct effort to pull the economy out of the recession. Nor, in general, did the public like the bail out of Wall Street and the big banks, even though, without it, we would now be in the great second depression, rather than in a nasty recession. Yes, I understand the frustration that things haven’t improved as fast as we would like. Yet, in looking at each action that has been taken by the Obama administration, the ultimate wisdom really can’t be denied. Could things have been done better? Perhaps, but I believe that the best intentions and efforts were made. Richard Eger
