Laurel man to be contestant on ‘Jeopardy’ By Tony E. Windsor The Town of Laurel seems to be earning the reputation of having a pool of intellectuals finding their way to the national television game show circuit. Recently Patrick Pugh, son of Charles and Karen Pugh of Laurel, was a contestant on the game show, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” Pugh left the show with $25,000, but was later alerted by the show’s producers that a spelling error on his game
viewing monitor has allowed him a second chance to come back on the show. He will return with all his “Life Lines” in place and at a starting point of $16,000. If that is not enough to make Laurel proud, there’s more! A Laurel High School math teacher is being featured on the national game show “Jeopardy.” Tom Stetina, former Math Department Chair at Laurel High School, will be on the “Jeopardy” show Thursday, Oct. 23.
Interestingly enough, Stetina actually showed interest in being a contestant on Jeopardy over a year and a half ago, but never heard from the show’s producers until this past summer. “I never really watched Jeopardy on a regular basis,” he said. “But, friends of mine said I would be good at answering the questions. So, I watched the show and saw that you could take a quiz online to see if you were contestant material.” Stetina took the online quiz at the Continued on page four
Invista will reduce its workforce by 80% INVISTA’s Seaford manufacturing site announced restructuring plans Tuesday which will involve the relocation of several manufacturing operations to other INVISTA facilities in the U.S. and Canada by mid-2009. When the restructuring is complete, INVISTA’s Seaford site will have a focused mission of producing nylon staple fiber for technical applications such as military apparel, conveyer belts used in paper manufacturing, and other specialty products.
By mid-2009, total employment at the Seaford site is expected to be about 100, down from approximately 500 INVISTA employees at Seaford today. “Many factors are compelling the Seaford site to reinvent itself,” said Gary Knight, Seaford site manager. “We have seen clear shifts in customer demand, changes in the economy, and significant increases in raw material and energy costs. “In addition, the site has a footprint and utilities that are oversized for the
site’s needs. While transitions are challenging, we must make these tough decisions now to help ensure the viability of Seaford’s industrial nylon staple manufacturing operation.” “INVISTA’s Seaford site and its past and present employees have been a part of an operation with historical significance, have served the fiber and polymer industry with quality and innovation, and have played an important role in the economy,” said Dan Continued on page four

County Councilman Vance Phillips takes exception to ‘spending spree’ By Ronald MacArthur Distribution of councilmanic grants by members of Sussex County Council doesn’t usually cause much controversy. It’s the time for each councilman to give back money to worthwhile community endeavors. Nonprofit groups throughout the county solicit their councilmen to tap into those accounts asking for grants of $50 to $10,000. This past fiscal year councilmen were given $61,000 to dole out as they see fit. Votes to approve the grants are always unanimous – until Tuesday, Oct. 7, when Councilman Vance Phillips took exception to what he called a spending spree by retiring Councilman Dale Dukes, who is leaving office Dec. 1 – halfway through the fiscal year. With three grants Tuesday totaling $10,500, Dukes’ coffer is down to $30,405 as of Oct. 7 with six meetings remaining before he steps down. Since July 1, Dukes has handed out $82,600 – $36,000 more than any other councilman and $56,000 more than Phillips has granted. Phillips said Dukes should leave at least half of the fund – about $30,500 - for his replacement. “You promised you would not spend all the money and you are going back on your word,” Phillips said to Dukes. “That is being irresponsible. You are not leaving any money for the taxpayers because of your spending spree.” Dukes, who was visibly upset by Phillips’ comments, said it was none of Phillips’ business. “I did not promise what amount I
Fire School scholarship
The Delaware State Fire School and Home Health Corporation have been awarded scholarships to participate in a national training conference dedicated to “Remembering When: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults,” developed by the National Fire Protection Association, NFPA. The conference will be held Dec. 3-5, in Boston, Mass. NFPA has selected two-member teams from 41 communities across the country to participate. Teams are comprised of one fire department member partnered with an individual from an agency within the community that serves older adults through home visits. Michael Lowe of the Delaware State Fire School and a representative of Home Health Corporation will participate in the workshop. After the workshop, Delaware State Fire School will conduct a minimum of five group presentations and at least two train-the-trainer sessions for Home Health Corporation.
would save in the account because I’m not sure what requests I will still get in,” he said. On one of Dukes’ three requests, Phillips said he was willing to chip in $2,000 from his fund if Dukes would reduce his grant to $3,000 and split up the donation of $5,000 for the Laurel
Public Library security system to save some money in his account. Dukes said no. Phillips voted for that grant as well as a $5,000 grant for the Town of Blades to purchase park equipment, but he voted against a $500 donation from Dukes’ account for God’s Food Wagon to
purchase supplies. “I just want you to know I put you on notice,” Phillips told Dukes. Also retiring are Finley Jones, president, and Lynn Rogers, but they are not following the same track as Dukes. Rogers has more than $90,000
remaining in his account and Jones has more than $86,000 left in his account. All councilmen have unspent funds remaining from previous fiscal years. Phillips has more than $72,000 remaining and the most frugal of all, Councilman George Cole, has $124,553 to spend.

‘Jeopardy’ contestant from Laurel has eyes set on ‘Millionaire’ Continued from page one
Jeopardy website and did well enough that producers called to tell him that he was definitely someone who could be considered as a television contestant. He was told to go to Philadelphia and take part in some “fake” Jeopardy games. After visiting Philadelphia, Stetina heard nothing for almost two years and figured he had been pretty much “written off.” Then in July, Stetina was notified by Jeopardy producers that he had been selected for the show and taping would take place at the end of August. On August 27, Stetina and his small entourage of family and friends, including his mother, flew out to Los Angeles. Unfortunately, the timing of the Jeopardy show coincided with the start of the new school year. “I left materials for the students and a note explaining that I would be missing the first couple of days of school because I was appearing on Jeopardy. I know that a lot of my students are going to be watching the show and I am sure they will be giving me a hard time,” he said laughing.
According to the rules of the Jeopardy game show, Stetina is not allowed to discuss any particulars of the show or the amount of money he may have won. He does however, have good things to say about the trip in general. “It was a whirlwind trip,” he said. “We flew out on a Wednesday and the show taped on Thursday. We spent the weekend with my sister who lives in Southern California and then flew back in time for school on Monday.” Stetina said when you are one of three contestants on Jeopardy, there is guarantee for at least some money. He said the third place contestant gets $1,000, the second place contestant gets $2,000 and of course the winner takes all of their earned money. “I knew that at minimum I would get enough money to pay for the costs to travel out to Los Angeles. So, it was a great way to visit family and be on the show,” he said. Stetina said he does not think there is any proven way to prepare for Jeopardy. He believes based on what the category is almost anyone could have a “good day” on Jeopardy. “I think if you do well in your living room, you would do well on the televi-
sion show,” he said. He said the major challenge is developing good timing when it comes to hitting the buzzer to answer a question. “They say you should practice by using the clicker on a ballpoint pen while watching the show in your living room. I’m not sure that is helpful, but I do know that it is important to get in a good rhythm when it comes to hitting the buzzer,” Stetina said. He said at the beginning of the show, he found himself hitting the buzzer earlier than was allowed, which gave him a slight delay and enabled enough time for other contestants to get in ahead of him with their responses. “You can’t see it when you are watching the show on television at home, but there is a series of lights that circle near the main board. When they have completed the series, you can hit the buzzer. If you do it too soon, it makes your buzzer have a secondary delay; not much of a delay, but enough to give other contestants a chance to get in ahead of you. I eventually developed a rhythm and got more familiar with the timing.”
Though there is a degree of pressure about competing on television, Stetina said the people who work at Jeopardy are very helpful. He said the show staff treats contestants and their families wonderfully and made the experience less stressful. “They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet,” he said about the crew. “I know people wonder if being on television and in front of the camera and lights makes it hard to concentrate and play the game. But, I have to say that the show moves so fast-paced that I had little time to consider that I was on television. I was in the moment, in a zone, didn’t really have time to process everything around me. I just focused on answering the questions and staying on the show as long as I could.” Stetina said he thoroughly enjoyed his stint on Jeopardy, but also commented that seeing how well Patrick Pugh performed on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” has given him pause for thought. “I think after seeing Patrick on television I think he has caused me to consider taking a shot at being on “Millionaire” next,” he said.
Invista plant is reducing workforce from 500 to 100 next year Continued from page one
Stone, president of INVISTA Performance Surfaces & Materials. “The Seaford site should be proud of its contributions and accomplishments for the past seven decades. We will build on this legacy as we transition to a smaller operation in 2009.” While restructuring will not begin until the first quarter of next year, INVISTA will soon begin bargaining in good faith with the Seaford Nylon Employees’ Council over the effects of the changes. Additionally, INVISTA will work closely with state agencies, the Department of Labor and business councils to ensure that Seaford employees affected by the restructuring in 2009 will have access to available resources. INVISTA is making the announcement far in advance of the changes to ensure that employees, contractors, and the community have as much time as possible to plan for the future, as well as to allow the site to make the capital investments required to make modifications to the site and ensure that the site will be in full regulatory compliance, the company said. Many carpet mills are moving away from the type of staple carpet fiber manufactured at Seaford toward bulked continu-
ous filament (BCF) carpet fiber. This shift in demand creates an opportunity to capture volume for other INVISTA sites that manufacture BCF, but it represents a loss of staple production volume for Seaford. This loss of volume, when combined with the burden of Seaford’s large infrastructure, has created challenges that cannot be overcome without significant action, Knight shared with employees in meetings at the site on Tuesday. In contrast to the situation with staple carpet fiber, INVISTA is optimistic about the Seaford site’s ability to be competitive and create long-term value in the industrial nylon staple market. As a result of the restructuring, INVISTA will no longer pursue construction of a natural gas pipeline through the City of Seaford as announced earlier this year. The smaller natural gas line currently serving the site should provide adequate volumes following the restructuring and INVISTA’s conversion from coal to natural gas. INVISTA will work closely with customers through the transition in an effort to minimize disruptions. Throughout the transition and beyond, the site will maintain its commitment to safety, compliance and environmental excellence, the company said.

DelDOT operators now covered Department of Transportation (DelDOT) Secretary Carolann Wicks was recently joined by Senator Margaret Rose Henry and DelDOT employees as she announced the inclusion of DelDOT responders to those covered by the Move On Over law. Senator Henry, primary sponsor of Senate Bill 274, conveyed her concern about the risks emergency responders face daily on Delaware’s roadways. SB 274 was signed by Governor Ruth Ann Minner on July 16, and amends the previous Move On Over law that applied to police,
fire, and other emergency vehicle operators. The bill extends the Move On Over law to DelDOT vehicle operators. Senator Henry stated, "Frequently, DelDOT personnel are requested to provide support to fire and police officials at an incident scene. The Move On Over law is helping to reduce the risk of serious injuries and death to all public servants who are working in harm's way." New signage will be installed on roadways entering the State to inform motorists of the law.

County looks to secure land for dredging spoils By Ronald MacArthur Most agree that dredging the Nanticoke River is critical to maintaining the route as a viable transport route. The debate over the past decade has been where to put the spoils. The process moved forward Tuesday, Oct. 7, when Sussex County Council voted to allow the county administrator and staff to enter negotiations for the possible purchase of 50 acres of land for placement of spoils. Under the federal navigation program, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for dredging and the municipality, Sussex County, is responsible for securing the spoils site. In addition, on the request of Councilman Vance Phillips of Laurel, the county will ask the state, which owns about 3,000 acres of protected land along the river, for a possible donation of 50 acres of land. “I think we are making a mistake by even negotiating,” Phillips said. “It’s foolish to spend taxpayers’ money when the state has 3,000 acres on the Nanticoke. We get no revenue stream from the river – the state gets all the revenue. The least they can do is set aside a small portion of land.” Even if the donation of land does not work, the purchase is not a bad idea, said Councilman George Cole of Bethany Beach. “This land could be added to the 3,000 acres. It’s not like it’s not money

MORNING STAR • OCTOBER 16 - 22, 2008 well spent,” he said. Even if the county secures a site, don’t look for the project to begin anytime soon. There are no federal funds budgeted for Nanticoke River dredging in the 2009 federal budget. “This will be the most critical issue,” said Monte Franklin, chief of the Army Corps of Engineers Navigation Branch. “Getting funding is more challenging all the time.” He said once he gets word from the county that a parcel has been secured, the Corps will take
the next steps: securing funding; engineering; and bidding out the project. Franklin would not provide an estimated cost of the project, but said it would be in the millions of dollars. According to an Army Corps of Engineers 2002 survey of the river, shoaling has occurred to a depth of 9.5 feet. The project will provide for a channel 12 feet deep and 100 feet wide the entire length of the river with a slight widening of the channel between the bridges in
the harbor in Seaford to a depth of nine feet. Paula Gunson, executive director of the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce, said local officials have been waiting and watching for the start of the dredging project for years. “The Nanticoke River is vitally important to the Seaford area,” she said. “There is a tremendous economic impact from industry, recreation and leisure activities on the Nanticoke.” The Nanticoke is busy. Ac-
cording to a 2006 report released by the Army Corps of Engineers, 1.3 million tons were shipped on the river, an increase of more than 200,000 tons from the year before. There were 1,372 trips made by commercial barges and tugs on the Nanticoke in 2006, for an average of about four a day. Commodities shipped include fuel oil, sand and gravel, wheat, corn, barley, rye, soybeans and vegetable products. The biggest increases have been in sand and gravel since the
opening of a sand plant on the south side of the river near Blades. Of the annual total, sand and gravel comprise 1 million tons of commodities being transported. Franklin said there is no doubt, even with multiple requests for dredging projects in the Chesapeake Bay region, that the Nanticoke River project has a high priority. “The Eastern Shore is dependant on water-borne commerce to transport bulk commodities,” he said.
Darbys keep a watchful eye on Nanticoke River By Ronald MacArthur Tom and Kristina Darby are keeping a cautious eye on plans to dredge the Nanticoke River. Dredging could open up the river to more and larger barge traffic, but Tom is more concerned about the damage being done today. The couple moved to their home on a small bluff overlooking the Nanticoke seven years ago and not long after set out on a crusade to alert the public and officials about the problems caused by increased boat traffic on the river – erosion of the riverbank and damage to wetlands. He said boats going at excessive speeds and those too close to the shoreline cause most of the damage. They have a website, nanticokeriver.net, filled with photographs and information to prove it. Tom said he is not opposed to dredging as long as it’s done in the right locations along the river. “This area depends on the river,” he said. “There is no way the roads could handle the traffic.” He said the average barge some are up to 400 feet long can hold the equivalent of 150 tractor-trailer loads. As long as barges and tugs stay in the channel, there are no problems, he said. But, occasionally, and not always in the daylight when people are watching, barges get out of the channel and that’s when problems occur. He has a detailed list of barge
accidents and groundings compiled on his web site. A barge destroyed his dock. “Barge captains need to take responsibility when they cause problems,” he said. In his opinion, some barges are simply too big for the river. “There are places where the river is 100 feet wide and some of the barges are 70 to 80 feet wide. It’s amazing to me how some of the tug captains make turns with no space,” he said. He said the vast majority of barges and tugs follow the rules and stay in the channel and cause no problems. In fact, the wake produced by the large tugs and barges is marginal. There is more wake produced by large, speeding pleasure boats, he said. In conjunction with the dredging, regulations, especially those dealing with wake zones, need to be updated, Darby said. Tom Darby has appeared before the Delaware General Assembly, spoken at several hearings, written numerous letters, sent photographs and emails to officials, spoken with just about every elected official who represents the area and met with Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard and Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control officials. The Darbys have won a few small battles - the state and Coast Guard have stepped up enforcement along the river – but they maintain a constant vigil for larger victories in their quest to protect the river.

Clock ticks for three retiring Youâ€™ve Got Questions Sussex County Councilmen By Ronald MacArthur The clock is ticking for three retiring members of Sussex County Council. After more than 40 years of combined service, councilmen Dale Dukes, Finley Jones and Lynn Rogers have six meetings remaining before they step aside. They will serve until Dec. 31, but the election and holidays cut into the county council schedule. There are two more meetings in October, only one scheduled meeting in November and three meetings scheduled in December. Because county government sometimes moves at a snailâ€™s pace, time is running out for the councilmen. Council President Jones, of Greenwood, said with plans to clear the docket of any pending land-use matters, time has been set aside the last week in December just in case special meetings are needed. He said Lawrence Lank, director of planning and zoning, has a hit list of about 10 projects that require action. Jones said planning and zoning commissioners must set a drop-dead date when no more public hearings can be scheduled that will require additional hearings before the current council. â€œAnd that needs to be done real soon,â€? he said. One key matter in Dukesâ€™ district is the proposed David G. Horsey & Sons borrow pit in the Hardscrabble area. â€œThe residents are very upset that we are not waiting until January for the legislative report on borrow pits, but we are going to act on this before we leave,â€? Dukes said. Many residents in the Hardscrabble area are opposed to another borrow pit in their neighborhood. They asked the council to delay the Horseyâ€™s request for a conditional use for the land to construct the pit until after the findings of a legislative committee were made public. Rogers, of Milton, said the top items on his to-do list are two L.T. Associatesâ€™ requests on Gills Neck Road. He promised to get the requests for a zoning change and a conditional use back on an agenda before the end of October. The zoning change from AR-1 to CR-1 could pave the way for Townsend Village Centre, a 68-acre, 521,000-square-foot commercial project at the corner of Gills

Neck Road and Kingâ€™s Highway. Planning and zoning commissioners recommended denial of the request. The conditional use would allow for the use of 186 acres of AR-1 land for the Governor's housing project. Planning and zoning recommended that the council approve a scaled-back version of the project â€“ from 472 units to 258 units. Dukes, of Laurel, said he would also like to see the trio take part in as many discussions as possible dealing with pending ordinances that are part of the updated comprehensive land-use plan. There are more than 20 potential new ordinances contained in the plan. Jones said action on an open-space ordinance is a priority. He anticipates that ordinance will resurface in early November. Council recently passed a new forested-buffer ordinance. Others on the table include Super Design regulations and a Super Green initiative to reward developers who follow strict environmental standards. But the vast majority of new ordinances will not make it to the table before the end of the year. â€œSome, like transfer of development rights, are just too complex and will require a lot of debate,â€? Jones said. Rogers echoed what all three are saying â€“ they want full agendas. â€œWe were elected to do four-year terms, and we are not going to sit back on our laurels,â€? he said. For the next three months, itâ€™s business as usual, but there is not enough time for all matters to get addressed. Dukes said he would like to see the county streamline its bidding process to make it easier for local contractors to bid on county projects. â€œThere are many good, local contractors looking for work who wonâ€™t bid on county projects because itâ€™s too hard â€“ too much expense and paperwork,â€? he said. Jones said there is unfinished work in the countyâ€™s airport and industrial park. He said he would like to see more jobs created and the airport facility expanded. â€œBut there is only so much money,â€? he said. All three said they would miss their jobs as county councilmen. â€œBut no one has an idea how much time the job requires,â€? Jones said.

VINE system allows the public to check on status of inmates Gov. Ruth Ann Minner and Safety and Homeland Security Secretary David B. Mitchell recently unveiled a new Internetbased system that allows crime victims to receive real-time information about the custody status of inmates. Delaware’s Victim Information Notification Everyday (VINE) system makes information about prison transfer, release or escape accessible 24 hours a day. Crime
victims and other concerned citizens can access the free, anonymous service by calling 1-877-DE8-VINE or visiting www.vinelink.com. “The implementation of the VINE system further enhances Delaware’s victim rights services. This will restore peace of mind and help citizens reestablish control in their lives,” Minner stated. Another important feature of the VINE
system is that it provides informational alerts to registered users. The system will call or email a victim when an inmate’s custody status changes due to transfer, release or escape. Victims can register multiple phone numbers and email addresses for the alerts. VINE was developed in 1993 by Appriss, a private organization, following the death of Mary Byron, a 21-year-old
woman who was shot and killed by a former boyfriend. Bryon expected to receive notification when her offender was released from prison. Unaware of the offender’s release, Mary was unable to get to a safe place. Following her death, her parents worked to make the VINE system operational in hopes of saving other women from a similar attack.

Nanticoke River Marine Park named Delaware Clean Marina The Nanticoke River Marine Park in Blades has been certified as a Delaware Clean Marina – a new partner in the efforts to protect and preserve the Nanticoke River. DNREC Deputy Secretary David S. Small presented the Clean Marina flag and certificate signed by Governor Ruth Ann Minner to Carlyle Windley, Nanticoke River Marine Park manager and president of the Blades Economic Development Corporation. "The Nanticoke is an exceptional river, supporting some of the most biologically diverse habitats in the region,” said Small. “By implementing pollution prevention practices, the Nanticoke River Marine Park protects the natural heritage of this beautiful river and helps ensure its healthy and sustainable future.” Nanticoke River Marine Park is the eleventh marina in the state – the first marina on the Nanticoke River in Delaware – to be certified as a Clean Marina. To meet the requirements, the marina voluntarily
implemented environmentally-sound operating and maintenance procedures that include fueling, pumpout and maintenance services. With the assistance of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and Power Squadron, the marina will provide boater education programs and free safety inspections to vessel owners. Certified clean marinas can display the Clean Marina certificate and flag and use the logo on advertising and promotional materials. In addition to publicity, marinas receive technical assistance and possible grant opportunities through the program. The Delaware Clean Marina program is a cooperative effort between the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and the University of Delaware’s Sea Grant Marine Service Advisory. For more information, visit www.dnrec. delaware.gov/ or contact Crystal Nagyiski, pollution prevention manager, at 302-7399909 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Renee’ Morris named ATHENA winner by Seaford Chamber Renee’ Morris contributes “to Seaford and the neighboring communities by consistently providing leadership, excellence and innovative support to improve the quality of life for others,” according to the information submitted in her nomination for the ATHENA award. Renee’ has worked for Nanticoke Memorial Hospital for 17 years. She started out in a temporary position and within six months was offered a permanent job in the patient services area. She worked in the nursing education department as an administrative assistant and, for the past 15 years, she has been in her current position, director of marketing and development. Renee’ attributes her unselfish, caring attitude to her 94-year-old grandmother, Christina Paquette. Renee’ gets satisfaction from helping in her community and from making a difference to the people who use Nanticoke Memorial Hospital. She sees the child in the emergency department who has no health insurance being treated by top-notch physicians. She is proud of the funds raised to help those with limited resources who cannot afford prescription medications. Renee’ never seeks the spotlight, but her imprint is on hospital events from the annual golf tournament and the dinner and auction, to the community Women’s Health Day in 2006. Her resourcefulness and leadership have been demonstrated through these and other efforts which have made a tremendous impact on quality healthcare in the community. Renee’ Morris is a cancer survivor. Sixteen years ago she had her cancerous thyroid removed. Just a year and a half ago, she had another scare. She is involved in the Celebrating Hope Program that funds breast cancer research. In the next year fundraising efforts for Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will focus on women’s health, including obtaining digital mammography, which Renee’ is proud to be a part of. In addition, through Longaberger, she has been involved in programs that provided new cancer patients with a special Longaberger basket. She has chaired an annual breast cancer awareness dinner for several years which brought women together to raise the awareness of breast cancer and the importance of early detec-
tion education, and treatment options. This past year the program traveled through a bus trip to Pennsylvania. Renee’s mother gave her a keepsake Longaberger Americana basket each year for her July 4th birthday. So after much urging from her sister Michele 10 years ago, Renee’ became a consultant for the company. In less than 18 months, she realized that she wanted to move to a leadership group level. In just four years, she became a branch leader and now has 24 consultants on her team. For the past several years, Renee’ has earned National VIP awards for sponsoring and sales. She finds satisfaction in seeing the women achieve their goals, overcome obstacles and realize their full potential. In addition, and through Longaberger, Renee' works with many local organizations to help them reach their fundraising goals. Over the past few years, organizations such as the Nanticoke Senior Center, Seaford and Blades Volunteer Fire Departments, Seaford Lions Club, Fraternal Order of Police, AMVETs and the softball leagues have achieved fundraising success with Renee’s assistance. Renee’ graduated from Milford High School and has taken courses at Delaware Tech and Wilmington University. She has been married to Gary for 15 years and has two stepdaughters. Renee’ and Gary are competitive in hunting, fishing and golf. From the time Renee’ was 10-years-old, she rode and showed Arabian horses and from her high school years until age 30, she trained Arabian show horses professionally and competed on the national level. She enjoyed interaction with older people and had the opportunity to sell horses internationally. Renee’ Morris epitomizes what ATHENA stands for: creativity, initiative and excellence in her profession, assisting women to reach their full potential and providing valuable service to the quality of life in her community. The ATHENA award will be presented at the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce Fall Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 16, at the Seaford Fire Hall. For more information, call the Chamber office at 302-629-9690 or 800-416GSCC. 800 S. Market St., Blades, Del.

Del Tech students celebrate the birth of Constitution Students learned about the events that led up to the signing of the Constitution during a presentation at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus. To celebrate the 221st anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, Dr. Ellen Marshall, instructor in the criminal
justice faculty program, spoke. Marshall said, “While performing my research, I was surprised to see how connected we are now as a people to our past.” Marshall is a prime example of those connections to early settlers. Mary Dyer was her tenth generation grandmother and
three of her ancestors traveled to America in the Mayflower. Marshall ended her presentation by quoting Sen. Robert Byrd: “I encourage everyone to read the Constitution and to read the Federalist Papers as well as other writings by our Founding Fathers. “Read deeply in history and biography, and read the newspapers and follow what is happening in Washington.
“Do not believe everything you see and hear, but view it through the prism of the Constitution. “Be your own Supreme Court, and decide if the arguments put forth by the White House, the Congress, the press and the pundits are in accordance with the Constitution and the intent of the Framers. Then you will become that most valuable of all things, a true defender of liberty – an informed citizen.”

Local Hunger Walk benefits area food closets The Western Sussex CROP Hunger Walk, which is planned for Sunday, Nov. 2, raises funds to help stop hunger and poverty right here in our community and around the world through self-help initiatives. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised will go to the food closets of participating communities, including the Seaford Community Food Closet at St. John’s United Methodist Church. This year Western Sussex County and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining together in interfaith community CROP Hunger Walks around the theme, "We walk because they walk." According to U.S. and international reports, more than 862 million people in the world go hungry. In the United States, one in 10 households - including 11.7 million children sometimes do not have enough food for regular meals. The need has also increased significantly locally. Cheryl Coffin, who helps coordinate the operation of the Seaford Community Food Closet, reports that more individuals have been served this year through September than were served in all of 2007. Individuals are screened and referred through social service agencies such as the Shipley State Service Center. According to Coffin, volunteers are seeing cases that have not been as frequent as before when
primarily the chronically poor were referred. Now families facing recent unemployment and larger families are seeking assistance. Before volunteers would shop for items once a month, now there is a need to shop once a week. In order to highlight this need for donations and support, walkers for the Western Sussex County CROP Walk are asked to bring a canned good or food item to carry. This year the walk will begin at West Seaford Elementary and proceed through Seaford to the Pine Street entrance of St. John’s Church where walkers will be invited to present the food and pray for the elimination of world hunger. The community is also invited to meet walkers on the walk and donate food items along the way. In addition to people who can take pledges and walk, help is needed to take pledge money at the donation table and be available for clean up. Walkers can bring pets to accompany them on the walk as long as they are carried or leashed. Children and youth are required to have adult supervision and signed parental permission on the pledge form in order to participate. In the event of rain, plans are being made to have the walk in a large, sheltered area. To support the Western Sussex CROP Walk, call John Blevins at 302-841-7450.

A Message From INVISTA To Our Employees, Retirees, Friends, and The Community On Tuesday, we announced plans to pursue a significant restructuring of INVISTA’s Seaford nylon plant in an effort to strengthen our business and address long-term issues of non-competitiveness at our site. In the wake of that news, I would like to offer some thoughts and express appreciation to our employees, the retirees who have served the Seaford site over the years, and this great community. For more than four years, INVISTA Seaford’s dedicated workforce has undertaken various initiatives aimed at enhancing the viability of our manufacturing facility and helping the site compete favorably in our challenging and globally competitive industry. Despite these efforts, we have not been able to achieve a level of competitiveness that is sustainable. The underlying issues that challenge the Seaford operation include: • Shifts in customer demand for certain products manufactured here • Dramatic changes in the economy that have resulted in industry-wide economic challenges • Significant increases in raw material and energy costs • Oversized infrastructure relative to the site’s needs These are tough issues that require significant actions. INVISTA’s Seaford site has no choice but to reinvent itself. When the restructuring is complete in 2009, the “new” INVISTA Seaford operation will have a very focused mission of producing nylon staple fiber for technical markets including military apparel, the paper manufacturing industry, and other specialty products. Much of the other work currently done at Seaford will be transferred to other INVISTA locations in the U.S. and Canada. While the scope of operations at Seaford will be narrowed, the restructuring is designed to improve the site’s future competitiveness and place INVISTA Seaford in a position to deliver innovation, value and quality to its customers for the long term. INVISTA remains fully committed to profitable long-term growth, but in order to accomplish this, we must make a step-change in response to the challenges that prevent the Seaford site from being successful. While restructuring won’t begin until the first quarter of next year, INVISTA will soon begin bargaining in good faith with the Seaford Nylon Employees’ Council over the effects of the changes. We expect the staged transition to be substantially complete by mid-year 2009, with total employment at our Seaford site expected to be about 100. We have issued the announcement far in advance of the changes to ensure that our employees, contractors, and the community have as much time as possible to plan for the future, as well as to allow us to make the capital investments required to make modifications to the site and ensure that the site will be in full regulatory compliance. Throughout the transition, every employee affected by the restructuring will be treated with dignity and respect. INVISTA will work closely with state agencies, the Department of Labor, and business councils to ensure that INVISTA employees affected by the restructuring in 2009 will have access to available resources for re-employment. INVISTA also pledges its cooperation and encouragement to economic development officials in attempting to attract new industries that could join us and take advantage of the industrial amenities our site could potentially offer. INVISTA’s Seaford site and its past and present employees have been a part of an operation with historical significance, have served the fiber and polymer industry with quality and innovation, and have played an important role in the global economy. The Seaford site should be proud of its contributions and accomplishments for the past seven decades. We will build on this historical legacy as we transition to a smaller operation in 2009. Our sincere thanks and appreciation go to our employees, retirees, contractors, customers, suppliers, government officials, and this community, all of whom have made us proud and helped put Seaford on the map. We look forward to working together as we reinvent the Seaford site and position it for the future. Respectfully,
Gary Knight Site Manager, INVISTA Seaford

Hollis, Parker winners of Moore award The John A., Jr. and Helen M. Moore Community Service Award was established in 1987. John Moore was a businessman and developer in the area for many years. Each year, the Moore family has the privilege of honoring someone who has performed outstanding volunteer service to the Seaford area community over a period of many years. This year’s recipients are activists in the best sense of the word. Both Linda Hollis and Clem Parker provide leadership and weekly support to the local community food closet. That includes working with others to raise funds, shopping for food and organizing the process of providing food for needy local people. Linda and Clem also provide leadership by serving on the board for the “Walk to Emmaus,” a spiritual leadership program that has benefited hundreds of Seaford residents from area churches. Linda and Clem are also very active in service to their respective churches. They have both served on church councils as leaders. Linda led fundraising efforts to remodel an old local bar into the Nellie G. Allen Curiosity Shop on Middleford Road. As a member of Soroptimist International of Seaford and the Soroptimist Foundation, she took on the responsibility of procuring grants and donations to make the club’s dream of owning their own shop building a reality. Linda continues her active involvement in the club in various areas. Clem is a charter member of Better Homes of Seaford and continues to be an active member of the board. These two women are shining examples of how faith and determination make things happen in the community. They have devoted countless hours to their community and have never received recognition for those efforts. The award will be given at the Fall Dinner and Awards Ceremony for the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Oct. 16. For more information, call the Chamber office at 302-629-9690 or 800-416GSCC.

Senator Adams inducted into the National 4-H Hall of Fame Delaware State Senator Thurman Adams was inducted into the National 4H Hall of Fame in a ceremony on Oct. 10 at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Md. Adams is being recognized for his many contributions to 4-H, both as an adult and as an active 4-Her during his youth. The National 4-H Hall of Fame was created in 2002, during the 4-H Centennial, to acknowledge and celebrate the people who have made a significant impact on the 4-H youth development organization. Nominees are evaluated based on career accomplishments and on their activities in the areas of citizenship, leadership and character. Adams, who was elected to the Delaware State Senate in 1972, is the longest serving senator in state history. From 1999-2002, he was senate majority leader. Since 2003, he has served as president pro tempore of the Delaware State Senate. Growing up, Adams was a member of his local 4-H club, the Dublin Hill Yellow Jackets. As the president of T.G. Adams and Sons, a feed and grain business, he has provided feed for livestock projects. He also purchased thousands of dollars of youth livestock projects at the annual 4-H Jr. Livestock Auction. Jan Seitz, associate dean and director of University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, says that Sen. Adams has played an integral role in the success of Delaware 4-H. The National 4-H Hall of Fame can be viewed online at www.nae4ha.org/hof/.

Hello from Florida Now the other part, Sheila wants me to tell all her former customers at Curves in Laurel how much she misses them. Sheila now lives in Florida and is a Star subscriber. Nice to hear from you Sheila! Words of wisdom You know and I know that sometimes people can make the most profound statements. Try this one from Grace Carey at Carey’s Sunoco, “Most people aren’t like me.” Yes, Grace, there is a lot of truth to that one. Keep listening, everyone, you may hear something that will “lighten” your load this week, too!

It was wonderful. Carlton B. Whaley did an excellent job for us. We are very satisfied. The Cummings.
Business Person of the Year The Laurel Chamber of Commerce is currently seeking their annual Business Person of the Year. All members are eligible to vote for their choice and Delmar is closing in on its Citizen of the Year that will be announced in November.
New business opens There is a new business called Bi-State Motors & Sports on Rt. 13, south of Laurel. The owner is Ray Beauchamp and he is involved with the sales, parts, and service of mopeds, motorcycle, autos and ATVs. I was made aware of this due to an e-mail from Sheila Lockerman, sister of Sherry Beauchamp, and wife of Ray. Sherry is also planning on moving her “Just For Kids” business in the complex in the very near future. Sherry has a tremendous business in selling gently used kids clothes. She currently is located on Bi-State Boulevard in Delmar.

someone slammed a two-by-four piece of lumber against the building. In an instant, I was in complete darkness as my valued flashlight went down the hole. It seemed like minutes for me to recover and I exited the toilet amid much laughter, minus one flashlight. At our annual Christmas party, here was this wrapped gift for me. As Stan “The Man” Whitaker presented it, I could tell they had pulled another one on me. You guessed it, my flashlight reappeared! My hat is off to my dedicated Lodge brothers for their tenacity, spirit and dedication to their projects. With the Haunted House they are trying to have some fun with people of all ages and the money they collect goes to Lodge projects and the Boy Scouts of America in Laurel and Delmar, who are also involved with the annual fall project. Friday and Saturday, close to 700 showed up for the first weekend and there are five more days of the event, so support them.
We wanted the best possible job at a reasonable price. Carlton B. Whaley gave it to us. Not one thing on this garage disappointed me! We are happy! Anne and Charles Walls

MORNING STAR â€˘ OCTOBER 16 - 22, 2008
Health Is there a link between cell phone usage and brain cancer? By Anthony Policastro, M.D A few years ago, there was a study that suggested that cell phones cause brain tumors. Subsequent studies did not support that finding. More recent studies suggest that it may indeed be true. One of the problems when dealing with cancer causing agents is the long time period between the event and the start of the cancer. For example, it takes many pack years of cigarettes to produce lung cancer. The new cervical cancer immunization is given early in life. It needs to be given that early to prevent a cancer years later. It took many years for us to find a relationship between asbestos and cancer. At this point, the issue of what relationship there is between cell phones and cancer is still somewhat vague. However, there are a number of things in the studies that are disturbing. One has to do with the fact that telephones do not give radio wave energy. Cell phones do. It is not clear what that energy can do. There are two types of cancer that seem to be higher in cell phone users. The first is what is called a glioma. That is one of the more common types of brain tumors. Therefore, trying to link that to cell phones is hard. What researchers seem to
be finding is that the frequency of glioma has always been relatively steady in the population. The frequency seems to be higher than expected in cell phone users. The second type of cancer is called acoustic neuroma. This is a growth on the nerve that goes to the ear. It is not that common. Therefore, its appearance in higher numbers is disturbing. What is the most concerning thing about these cancers is that they appear on the side of the head where the person most often uses the cell phone. Other factors that were observed were related to the length of use and age of individual. Those people who were heavy cell phone users for more than 10 years were more likely to develop tumors. Those individuals who were under age 20 were also at greater risk. The lessons in this should be obvious. The first is that cell phone use should be limited in the first place. The second is that using a hands free or speaker type phone causes less risk. The third is that children under age 20 should avoid cell phone use when possible. The younger the child, the stronger the warning should be. There is really no reason for someone who is not yet of driving age to be carrying around a cell
phone. Under that age, you should have a pretty good idea of where your children are without the need for a cell phone. That is harder once they begin driving.
Once we have more information on this, we can relax the standards. However, for now, the danger seems like a real possibility and we should respect that danger.

Her heart went out to those who were unable to have access to fresh water. In the Congo, drinking water is the same water that is used to bathe, do laundry and use the bathroom.

Registration for the race will be held at the church and all funds will be divided equally between the Seaford Mission and “Wishing for Water.” Registration must be completed by Thursday, Oct. 23.

The Laurel varsity field hockey team rallied from a two goal deficit to give undefeated Cape Henlopen a battle in last Wednesday’s game in Laurel. The Bulldogs trailed the Vikings, 2-0, at the half before scoring a second half goal to make it 2-1. A second goal was waved off and Cape held on for the 2-1 win. “They are getting better. They had a real nice practice last night. I was just hoping they’d take last night’s practice into today’s game and they did,” Laurel head coach Margo Morris said following Wednesday’s game. In the first half, Cape’s Molly Desmond’s shot was stopped by Laurel goalie Ashley Zarello but the Vikings’ Caroline Judge followed the shot up and gave her team a 1-0 lead with 23:18 left. On a Cape corner, Judge took a pair of shots on goal which were stopped before Kaci Coveleski scored on a followup with 20:42 remaining in the first half. Cape out shot Laurel, 6-1, and held a 6-2 advantage in corners in the first half. Laurel’s defense, which kept Cape off the boards for the remaining 20 minutes in the first half, blanked the Vikings in the second half to keep it close. Laurel’s Tykia Briddell knocked the ball in the goal from outside the circle but the Bulldogs didn’t touch it and it was waved off.

Laurel scores 21 second quarter points, tops Easton 49-22 The Laurel varsity football team advanced to 4-2 with a 49-22 non-conference win over Easton last Friday night. Tyler West ran for a pair of touchdowns, Chris Jones had a touchdown run and a touchdown reception, and Brandon Hearne threw a pair of touchdowns for the Bulldogs. Jones started the scoring with a five-yard touchdown run and Kyle Brown booted the extra point to make it 7-0. In the second quarter, Easton kicked a 22-yard field goal before West rumbled four yards for a touchdown. Brown’s PAT gave Laurel a 14-3 lead. Easton scored on a 61-yard touchdown pass, but Hearne came back with a pair of touchdown tosses. Hearne found Josh Kosiorowski for a 22-yard touchdown and later completed a 33yard pass to Jones for the score. Laurel held a 28-9 lead at halftime. Jules Cannon West ran four-yards for a touchdown, Jules Cannon had a nine-yard touchdown run, and Brown made two more extra points as Laurel outscored Easton, 14-7, in the third quarter. Josh Rubino capped the scoring for the Bulldogs with a fumble recovery in the end zone and Brown made his seventh PAT of the night for the 49-22 win. Jones ran for 131 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and had the 33-yard touchdown reception; West carried the ball 15 times for 153 yards and two touchdowns; Kosiorowski caught two passes for 47 yards and a touchdown; David Albert caught one pass for 41 yards; Hearne completed four of seven passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns; and Cannon added 87 yards Kyle Brown rushing.

Indian River edges Delmar, 1-0, with second half goal The Delmar and Indian River boys’ soccer teams squared off in a battle of Henlopen South contenders last Thursday in Delmar and the two teams did not disappoint. After a scoreless first half Indian River scored the game’s only goal with 20:47 left for the 1-0 win. Each team had a number of scoring opportunities, especially in the second half. Delmar goalie Sean Scovell made three saves early in the second period to keep the Indians off the board. Delmar’s Denny Murray followed a shot by Casey Bellamy, but IR goalie Kevin Rowe made the save. On a corner kick, Indian River’s Chris Conover headed the ball over the goal. Murray later took a shot on goal which was once again stopped by Rowe. Following another great stop by Scovell, Indian River finally found the net. Jake Buchler scored off a pass from Peter Mais on a corner (20:47). Delmar’s Cory Phillips had a shot just miss wide right and Rowe made a save on a Delmar corner with around five minutes left in the contest. Indian River had an opportunity to add to its lead on a penalty kick by Mais, but Scovell made a pair of saves to stop the Indians short. IR held on to win the game, 1-0, despite seven saves by Scovell.

Laurel field hockey continued Knight with 22:59 left in the game. Laurel appeared to knock in the tying goal later in the game, but that goal was also waved off. “There is no such thing as a good loss but we’ve come a long way,” said Morris. “Their record does not in any way reflect what kind of team they are.” Morris was pleased with the way her players are looking for each other and passing the ball instead of “playing hit and chase”. She said she is working with her team on hitting skills and capitalizing on scoring opportunities. Cape Henlopen was held to 10 shots and 10 corners. Laurel had two shots and six corners and Bulldog goalies Zarello and Taylor Oliphant combined to make six saves. Laurel hosts Seaford on Monday, Oct. 20.

Delmar girls’ volleyball team picks up a big win over Cape Henlopen By Mike McClure If there was any question about whether the Delmar girls’ volleyball team is a true contender in the Henlopen Conference, the Wildcats answered it with a 3-1 win over Cape Henlopen last Thursday in Delmar. The win, coupled with a non-conference victory over St. George’s on Monday, moved the Wildcats to 4-2 in the conference and 6-2 overall. “The girls just played so well together. They just came together as a team and they stayed together as a team,” Delmar coach Karen Lewis said. “They were very, very determined and they stayed with it.” Delmar jumped ahead early in the first game of Thursday’s home contest against Cape and led, 16-10, before picking up five more points with Jayme West serving. The Wildcats went on to win the game, 25-14. In game two, the Vikings jumped out to a 7-2 lead, but the Wildcats battled
back. West served up a pair of aces, Brittani Scott had a kill, and Annika Nichols added an ace to pull Delmar within one (11-10). Delmar’s Elise Breda had a kill off a set from Kelsey Murrell (15-12) before Breda and Murrell each had a kill to make it 16-15. West later served up an ace to give the Wildcats a brief lead before the sideout knotted the score at 1919. Murrell had a block and Nichols added another ace to extend Delmar’s lead to 22-19. Up 23-21, Meghan Gordy delivered a pair of aces for the 25-21 win. Cape Henlopen held an 8-4 lead before Scott had a kill and Gordy served up an ace to close the gap. Down 13-8, Delmar rallied again as Murrell had a pair of aces. Cape was up, 15-13, before scoring six straight points to take a 21-13 lead. The Vikings went on to win, 25-17, to cut the Wildcats’ lead to two games to one.

Delmar Sports Scene By Tommy Young The Delmar field hockey team split their two matches last week. After being shut out by Dover 2-0 on Tuesday, even though Shannon Wilson made 10 saves in goal, on Thursday they defeated Seaford 3-1. The soccer team also had a win and a loss as they were shut out by Indian River on Tuesday 1-0 as both teams had great games. This performance carried over for the Wildcats beating one of the best teams on the Shore, Worcester Prep on Thursday 4-2. Denny Murray had two goals while Cody Webster and Casey Bellamy had one goal each. Sean Scovell had six saves in goal. Then for the first time this year, the volleyball team won both of their games in the same week as they defeated Cape Henlopen 3-1 on Tuesday and came back on Thursday to win by the same score, 3-1, over Lake Forest. Boy, what an improvement over last year’s team’s record. Then, on Friday night the Wildcats bounced back from their only loss of the year by trouncing Lake Forest 42-7. hey scored 28 points in the first quarter, and from there on, it was everybody gets to play time. The Delmar scoring went like this: Daronte Deshields scored twice on runs of 19 and 67 yards and Tevin Jackson scored from 39 yards out. The other two scores were made by the defense. David Bradshaw caused a fumble with a hard tackle and then picked up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown and Jamel Jones picked off a pass and also ran it in
for a touchdown. Casey Bellamy continued to be very accurate when he had a chance to kick the ball; he made five extra points Friday night. ASSISTS AND ERRORS- The football program at Lake Forest has gone south in the past few years, and I think this year’s team is the weakest I have ever seen up there. I know that Division II in the Henlopen Conference gets tougher every year, but Lake Forest has always had good athletes and were tough, especially at home, but not in the last few years. The same thing is happening at Seaford, Delmar’s next opponent this Friday night, so we will get a chance to check them out. I ran into Linda Wells at the Delmar shopping center last week. It was the first time I had seen her since the Railroad Café closed, and I told her how much she was missed. She said she missed her regular customers just as much as they missed her, but she didn’t have a choice. At least her husband, Russell, who has some health problems, is feeling much better now that she is home and taking a little better care of his needs. I understand she received a special award from the State of Delaware via Representative “Biff” Lee out at the Delmar VFW the other morning when she was checking out their breakfast menu. Nobody is more deserving because people like her so not come along too often. Good luck, Linda and Russell, and enjoy your time together.

Delmar hockey tops Seaford, 3-1, with a pair of second half goals By Mike McClure The Delmar varsity field hockey team moved to 5-3-1 in the Henlopen Conference and 7-4-1 overall with a 3-1 win over Seaford last Thursday in Delmar. The Wildcats netted a pair of second half goals after the score was deadlocked at 11 at the half. Delmar’s Carlee Budd scored off a feed from Lauren Ruark on a corner with 25:11 left in the first half. Seaford had a number of near goals later in the first half, but Delmar goalie Shannon Wilson and the Wildcat defense held tough. Seaford’s Jamie Swain nearly knocked one in and teammate Courtney Torbert took a pass from Kelsey Hoch and shot one off of Wilson. Delmar also shot one wide right before the Blue Jays’ Maria
DeMott connected with 5:04 left in the half. Seaford goalie Molly Cain stopped a shot by Delmar’s Lindsay Lloyd and another Delmar shot sailed wide left as the score remained 1-1 at the half. Seaford held a 10-9 edge in shots and Delmar had a 4-3 advantage in corners. Wilson made six saves and Cain had four saves in the opening half. Lloyd opened the second half with a goal (28:29) to give Delmar the lead. Wilson had a save on a Seaford corner and Caroline Phillips made a nice clear for the Wildcats. Christina Parsons upped Delmar’s lead to 3-1 as she followed up a shot by Lloyd with a goal with 5:26 left in the game. Seaford finished with an 18-16 edge in shots, but Wilson recorded 13 saves. Cain had six saves for the Blue Jays.
The Sussex Tech boys’ soccer team extended its winning streak to four in a row with wins over Sussex Central and William Penn. The Ravens enter the week at 6-1-1 in the Henlopen Conference and 8-1-2 overall. Sussex Tech blanked Sussex Central, 4-0, last Thursday as Sebastian Borror had a goal and an assist; Ryan Moore, Christian Espinoza, and Evan Lee each tallied a goal; and Nathan Zanks dished out an assist. The Ravens outshot the Knights, 19-5, and Evan Lee scored all four goals in the second half. Sussex Tech’s James Smith also made three saves in the shutout win. On Saturday, Borror scored the game-winning goal in the second half in a 2-1 nonconference win over William Penn. Aris Reynoso added the assist and Christian Espinoza scored the Ravens’ first half goal. Smith also had three saves in the win. Lady Ravens earn a pair of shutout wins- The Sussex Tech varsity field hockey team blanked Dover and Caesar Rodney in a pair of Henlopen North contests last week. The wins advanced the Ravens’ winning streak to six in a row and upped the team’s record to 6-1 in the conference and 7-2 overall. Rebecca McMillan scored the only goal in Thursday’s game against Dover in a key Raven win. Sussex Tech outshot Dover, 15-8, and held a 9-7 edge in corners in the 1-0 win. Caitlin Stone recorded eight saves for Tech while Jessica Zebley had 14 saves for Dover (8-1). Sara Adams and McMillan each tallied second half goals and Maxine Fluharty added an assist in Sussex Tech’s 2-0 win over Caesar Rodney on Saturday. Stone had four saves for the Ravens, who outshot the Riders, 24-5, and held a 14-5 advantage in corners. Dover outscores Sussex Tech in second half for 42-29 win- The Sussex Tech varsity football team got touchdown runs of two and three yards from Desmond Sivels and a pair of extra points by Seth Hastings for a 14-7 lead over Dover in the first quarter of last Friday’s game. Dover added a second quarter touchdown to knot the score going into half-time. Dover scored a pair of third quarter touchdowns before Sivels scored his third touchdown of the night with a three-yard run. The Senators scored two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter and Sussex Tech’s Deshawn Sheppard added a touchdown run and a two-point run to cap the scoring.

Star Shown not in order are the Trinity Foundation Golf Tournament morning session winners: Mike Mcphail, Joe Aurillo, Mike Sturgeon, and Allen Rilley.
Trinity Foundation Golf Tournament sees successful year The Fifth Annual Trinity Foundation Golf Tournament was held October 5 at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. The tournament is a charity event to raise money for the Trinity Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2005 by the employees of Trinity Transport, Inc. Despite facing a tough economy, the event raised over $32,000 for the Foundation. Top sponsors for 2008 included Discover Bank, Trinity Port Services, Trinity Distribution Services, and Trinity Transport, Inc. “I want to extend a special thanks to Shirley Massey for her hard work. She volunteered many personal hours this year to ride door to door and calling businesses to get sponsorships. She was able to get 102 of the 140 sponsors this year,” said Lance Massey, tournament organizer. The Foundation uses funds from their two annual fundraisers to focus donations to three main causes: DYLA (Delaware Youth Leadership Academy), the American Cancer Society, and the American Heart Association. Other community support is provided to community causes such as the Seaford Mission, Down Syndrome Guild, DE Humane Society, and Muscular Dystrophy to name a few. The winning team from the morning session included Mike Mcphail, Joe Aurillo, Mike Sturgeon, and Allen Rilley. From the afternoon session, winners included Keller Hoch, Frank Parks, Chris Benjamin, and Dan Penrod.

‘Smoke testing’ will detect leaks in sewer system By Tony E. Windsor Laurel Public Works officials are informing town residents about a new test being conducted to help determine any leaks in the sewer system that would allow wastewater to seep into the municipal treatment system. During the Monday, Oct. 6 meeting of Laurel Mayor and Council, Public Works supervisor Woody Vickers said that a special “smoke test” will begin in the southern area of the town. The process uses non-toxic, non-noxious smoke to locate faulty connections to the municipal sewer system that allows rainwater to enter the sewer treatment system during heavy rainfalls. This is costly to the town because the wastewater treatment plant then must treat rainwater along with the traditional wastewater, creating a heavier than necessary load on the system. Vickers said Laurel sewer customers will receive a notice announcing the testing along with detailed information about the project and the process. Once receiving the notice, customers can expect the testing to be done within 24 to 72 hours. However, weather conditions such as rain or frost as well as weekends could move the testing beyond the 72 hours. It is not necessary for homeowners to be at home during the testing. Vickers said it is possible that if property owners have leaks in their sewer pipes
and system, the smoke could come into their home or business. He said it is unlikely, but should it happen, there is no reason to be alarmed. The smoke is not dangerous and will not irritate the eyes or stain clothing or furniture. In the informational material being provided to sewer customers at the time of the smoke testing, the material points out that smoke coming into a private building is “normal” and nothing to become alarmed about. “Smoke could enter your home if you have a dry trap within the premises,” the material states. “This may be a basement floor drain or some other unused plumbing fixture. Pouring water down these drains or other seldom-used fixtures will help assure that smoke does not enter your dwelling.” The material also states that a plumbing defect is another reason that smoke can enter a building. “The homeowner may want to address this plumbing defect since odors sometimes develop in the sewer system and could possibly enter the home through the defects,” the information says. Vickers said if smoke does come into the home the property owner can open the windows and doors to ventilate and then contact personnel doing the testing who will most likely be nearby. There will also be a phone number given out on the informational flyer to reach the testing supervisor who will be onsite in
Laurel during the smoke testing. Vickers said the smoke testing will cover 65,000 linear feet of municipal sewer lines and 257 manholes. He said preliminary investigation shows that the most immediate source of problems in the system are located in the southern area of the town. He said this area will be tested during this initial process and the northern area will be done at a later time. Councilman Don Phillips said he is happy to see the testing finally being done in the town. “This process has been in the works for a couple of years,” he said. “The results of this testing will make our wastewater treatment process much more efficient in the use of our taxpayers’ dollars. It will point out where we need to put taxpayer dollars in the future and will give us the best bang for our buck.” In other Mayor and Council business, Laurel Mayor John Shwed expressed his appreciation for the sidewalk installation along Sussex 468 near the Hollybrook Apartments complex. He said the sidewalk is necessary because of the heavy pedestrian traffic, much of which is children, along that section of the road. He also pointed out that the sidewalks were installed at no cost to the town. He said costs for the sidewalks were taken care of by the owners of Hollybrook Apartments.
Drought disaster declaration sought Governor Ruth Ann Minner is requesting a drought disaster declaration for Delaware farmers from the United States Department of Agriculture. “If this request is granted, Delaware farmers affected by this year’s drought can receive federal assistance and become eligible for additional disaster relief funds,” Gov. Minner said. “Our farmers are vital to the continued success of our agriculture industry.” Gov. Minner’s request was based on a recommendation from Delaware Department of Agriculture Acting Secretary Austin Short. An assessment by the Farm Service Agency’s Delaware Emergency Board, which estimated two-thirds of the state’s farmers have sustained losses in excess of 30 percent of their expected production in crops including corn, soybeans and hay. Minner submitted her request through a letter to USDA Secretary Ed Schafer.

Grandmom’s dream comes true in Alaska By Evelyn Baker On a windy night in 1932 in Plainfield, N.J., everyone was awakened to loud cries, “Extra, extra, read all about it!” The Lindbergh baby had been kidnapped from his nursery in the Sourland Mountains near Hopewell. The kidnapping held first place on the radio and our RCA was seldom turned off. I began saving clippings from the newspapers. A few months later we moved to Bridgeville. Newspapers and the radio were teeming with so much excitement. Events encouraged me to dream. I flew with Amelia, Will Rogers and Willey Post, covered the tales of Bonnie and Clyde. My scrapbook grew. I wanted to pick an orange, see the Alamo, go to Europe and Alaska. The years passed and life allowed me to pick oranges, go to the Alamo, spend time in Europe — all but Alaska. Well, three out of four wasn’t too bad! In May 2005, my granddaughter and her Army husband transferred to Alaska. Modern technology, the cell
phone, allowed an old grandmom the luxury of experiencing her great-grandchildren’s excitement. “We’re crossing the Great Divide; we’re 20 miles from the Canadian border.” Weeks passed. They were living in a hotel, two children and three dogs at a place called Palmer. House hunting in Alaska isn’t easy. Anchorage was too expensive. They bought a home in a place called Wasilla, which is 40 miles north of Anchorage. “Grandmom, come see us. It is so beautiful,” my granddaughter said. My reply, “I’d love to see your new home, but I’m too old to fly alone. I’m just too old for the trip.” All the while, I was saying it, I knew that I was going. My sister took me to the Salisbury Airport. Once again, I became aware that one is never too old to fly the friendly skies. Someone always asks you in an airport, “where are you headed?” Salisbury was no different, for a lady replied, “Wasilla. I’ve been there. You will love it. It’s so beautiful and is growing so fast that it may become as large as Anchorage.” The author’s dream came true when she went to visit her great-granddaughter in Alaska.

MORNING STAR • OCTOBER 16 - 22, 2008 I overheard my sister saying to the ticket agent, “Take care of her. She’s 83 years old.” The agent came over and placed a tag on my coat. I flew U.S. Air to Seattle and changed carriers for the remaining three hours. Upon approaching Alaska, Continental’s pilot announced that he was descending so that we could get a view of the mountains of Alaska and the coastline. The view was worth the price of the ticket. My daughter flew into Anchorage many times and kept interesting conversations going. “Mom, when you arrive make sure you see the huge polar bear in the lobby.” The airport had grown over the years and the huge, white Polar bear still remained, but in the old terminal, too far for me to walk. My family took me to a restaurant nearby. The lobby was filled with pictures of the building after the great earthquake. It was not pretty. Huge boulders remained. We headed for Wasilla. The dual, blacktop highway looked new, uncrowded and the view — mountain ranges as far as one could see. A sense of the remoteness prevailed. The vastness and rugged terrain was overwhelming.
Wasilla is situated between two mountain ranges. It’s very beautiful. The town of Willow, just north of Wasilla, is much higher and the cold winds blast down upon Wasilla. (A young man who works in the Seaford Post Office told me that. He’s from Willow.) The first night we went to Jordan’s football meeting at the new sports stadium. Believe me, Alaska needs projects like this one. There was an indoor soccer field. If they didn’t have this stadium, where would children and adults play? How would they function? It’s bitter, bitter cold. Sure, one leaves home from the heated garage, gets into a heated car and drives, but just getting out of the parking lot into the stadium will freeze your “tush.” I learned that you must pick up any person walking or stranded. One cold, early morning, a Wasilla school bus driver picked up a lady. Once she was aboard, she attacked the school bus driver. The school children quickly subdued her until help arrived. Another day, a school bus became stuck in the snow. The event occurred within walking distance for the remaining chil-
Public forum on the Nanticoke Watershed planned for Oct. 23 A report card on the health of the Nanticoke Watershed will be presented at a public forum on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Seaford Public Library. The forum is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about the watershed's diverse ecological resources - wetlands, habitats and wildlife species — and the stressors that impact its environmental health. The Nanticoke Watershed is an area of exceptional biodiversity. Located primarily in western Sussex County, the watershed includes the land area that expands from as far north as Harrington, south to Delmar and east to Georgetown. At the forum, DNREC's Division of Water Resources will present the results of an extensive wetland assessment and monitoring program. DNREC's Division of Fish and Wildlife will present information on the migratory bird species and the rare and uncommon amphibians and reptiles that inhabit the watershed. In collaboration with other conservation agencies, DNREC is designing a restoration plan for the watershed.
Displays, highlighting restoration and protection projects, landowner incentives and financial assistance opportunities, will be exhibited by several organizations – the Division of Fish and Wildlife Landowner Incentive Program; Division of Soil and Water Conservation; Adopt-aWetland; Natural Resources Conservation Service; The Nature Conservancy; Ducks Unlimited; Nanticoke River Watershed Conservancy; Delaware Forest Service; and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Easy tips on the everyday things people can do to protect the watershed will be provided. Guidebooks, covering restoration options and the health of the watershed, the value of wetlands, and the ways people can improve their backyard habitat, will be available. Each attendee will receive one free native tree or shrub for planting. Walk-ins are welcome, but seating is limited. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. To register, contact Rebecca Rothweiler at 302-739-9939 or Lynne Staub at 302-735-3600. For more information, visit www.wr.dnrec.delaware.gov.

dren, so they all walked the rest of the way home. Wasilla’s commercial business and services are well established. I noticed that each business was located on a large track of land. People are moving into Wasilla, Anchorage and Kenai from every state. There
they refer to the States as the lower 48. Wasilla is getting a new hospital and there are several churches. The buildings in the town of Palmar reminded me of one of the buildings straight out of an old Matt Dillon show. After my stay, I strongly suggest that if you are able to go — go “north to Alaska.”

Deer present challenges to drivers this fall Most car crashes with deer occur from October through December. Each year, crashes account for more than 150 human and nearly one and a half million deer fatalities. “More drivers are on the road at dawn and dusk, the very time of day when deer are most active,” cautioned Ray Palermo, director of public relations for Response Insurance, a national car insurer. “A car striking a 200-pound adult deer can not only result in the death of the deer, but also incur an average of $2,000
in damage to the vehicle.” Palermo suggested a few basic cautions for drivers. • Scan a wide swath of the roadside. Slow down when approaching a deer standing near the side of a road and be prepared. If startled, the deer can bolt onto the road and into your path. If necessary, honk your horn and flash your lights to try to scare it away. • In many instances, it is best not to swerve around the deer since the deer
may move in the same direction. You may also inadvertently hit another vehicle, or go off onto a dangerous shoulder. Unless certain of those road factors, it is often best to simply brake and continue in your lane of traffic. • Deer whistles or ultrasonic deer avoidance systems attached to vehicles have never been proven to work by independent studies and may give drivers a false sense of security. More driver safety information is available at www.Response.com.
The Delaware State Police (DSP) Homicide unit has arrested a 19-yearold Seaford man who was wanted in connection to a recent murder in Salem County, N.J. During the course of the investigation by New Jersey authorities, Thairen Brittingham, Brittingham 19, Seaford, was named a suspect as being involved in the homicide which occurred on Friday, Oct. 3 in Salem City. Arrest warrants were obtained in New Jersey for Brittingham on murder and related charges. DSP was contacted and DSP homicide detectives secured a search warrant for Brittingham’s residence. On Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 9:30 p.m., a warrant was executed at Brittingham’s home in the 25000 block of BethelConcord Road, Seaford. Brittingham was taken into custody at the residence without incident. A subsequent search of the property yielded the recovery of a weapon possibly used in the homicide. Brittingham was charged as a fugitive from New Jersey and has been incarcerated at the Sussex Correctional Center with no bond pending extradition to New Jersey where he will face murder and related charges.

Contractor chosen for renovations of interior to Laurel Train Station By Tony E. Windsor The construction work on the interior renovations of the Laurel Train Station are moving closer to reality as a contractor has now been picked to do the job. During the Monday, Oct. 6, meeting of Laurel Mayor and Council, Town Manager Bill Fasano said the architect working on the Train Station project on behalf of the town has given his recommendation.
In a letter dated Oct. 3, Philip E. Franks, of Philip Franks Architects, Philadelphia, told Fasano that a bid opening was held in the Laurel Town Hall on Tuesday, Sept. 30. Fasano said two bids were received in regard to the Train Station project. Franks has recommended that the low bidder, Palmer Construction, Inc. of Felton, be awarded the project contract for the

Seaford Museum presents talk entitled ‘The Nanticoke River’ On Saturday, Oct. 25, at noon in the Seaford Museum Jeanne Conner will present a talk entitled “The Nanticoke River, a Natural Boundary and Root of Civic Development.” Conner has had an interest in the history of this area since moving here from Baltimore at the age of 10. Her fascination was intensified after finding Indian artifacts in the ground when she and her husband were building their house along the Nanticoke River in 1965. While obtaining B.S. and Master’s degrees from the University of Delaware she concentrated on the architecture of the area and the AngloSaxon influence in the history of the Nanticoke Watershed. She published a book, “Footprints on the Nanticoke,” which further demonstrates her interest in and knowledge of the Nanticoke River. She serves on the board of the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance and works as a Creek Watcher. This lecture is in conjunction with the Smithsonian exhibit, “Between Fences” which is on display in the Seaford Museum at 203 High St., through Nov. 16. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Delaware Humanities Forum as part of the Museum on Main Street project. The public is invited. There is no charge. Light refreshments will be served. For details call 628-9828.

Support Rep. Danny Short
As Mayor of the City of Seaford, I am proud to submit this column in support of reelecting Danny Short as our State Representative from the 39th District. Representative Short is responsive to the legislative and project needs in his 39th District. He has made himself available to all his constituents. Updates are submitted frequently allowing the voters of the 39th District to be informed as to what the General Assembly is acting upon prior to votes taken. He consults with many persons to be better informed on how the prospective legislation may help or hinder them. In addition he is very willing to work in obtaining needed funding for capital improvements in his district whether it be a new library, road improvements, or storm drainage projects. He has first hand knowledge of issues in his district by being a past Mayor and City Councilman, an active member of the fire service, an insurance agent, and his ability to work closely with other elected officials to see that the needs of this district are met. I would encourage each one to consider Danny’s commitment and service to the public, not just as our Representative, but throughout the years as an active volunteer in our community. I plan to cast my vote for Representative Danny Short and encourage you to do so, too. Edward H. Butler, Jr. Seaford Mayor
Elect Sam Wilson
I am going to vote for Sam Wilson for the Second District of Sussex County Council. There are several reasons to consider in choosing Mr. Wilson. Sam Wilson is a life-long resident of Sussex County and devoted family man. Unlike many in government, he is of good character and will consider what is best for the county, not just his own interests in the spirit of being a true public servant. He wants to preserve our county and prevent it from becoming another New Castle County with uncontrolled growth, sprawl, congestion, a strip mall for every corner, and unfulfilled promises of developers. Sam will see that we keep our property rights, and our ability to do business is not destroyed by an over burdensome local government. He will also work to ensure that the state does not usurp the rights of the local government and its people, believing that local government is usually better than a central government control.

These values will help ensure that Sussex County remains a good place for families, business and to raise children. If you can’t vote for Sam Wilson, consider working to see that he is elected. If you live in the second council district and care about Sussex County, then Sam deserves your vote. John Poe Bridgeville
Vote the candidate, not the party
As a registered Republican, I have never voted a straight ticket. I do not know Dave Wilson. I do know Aaron Chaffinch. I’ve known him and his family for 40 years. I have eaten at his parents’ table. His sisters babysat my brother and me. His father was a Fellow Kiwanis community servant. When my mother was very ill before her death, Aaron’s parents were elderly and ill in the same facility. Who did I see when I visited my mother? Aaron Chaffinch, who spent more than 20 years protecting and serving us in the Delaware State Police? Aaron Chaffinch, who got bad press from reporters and lawyers as a result of some who couldn’t handle the job? Aaron Chaffinch. Believe half of what you hear and most of what you see. Let’s continue the tradition of accessible representation in the 35th District with Aaron Chaffinch. Ralph Scott Bridgeville

The party and costume contest will begin at 7 p.m. Get you costumes ready, and join us for lots of fun! Sara Lee Thomas Seaford Parade Committee Chairwoman
What about Possum Point?
Congratulations on Delaware Tech’s efforts to increase quality theater offerings in central Sussex County. I believe the citizens of this community deserve a wide variety of artistic endeavors and Delaware Tech is an ideal place to offer them. I must say, however, that after reading the article in the Sept. 29 issue of the News Journal, I was dismayed. From the article, I think people may get the impression there is no quality theater in the area, but Del Tech was working to change that. It was particularly distressing to me that there was no mention of the theatrical offerings of the Possum Point Players (PPP), a group which has been in existence for over 40 years, not only in close proximity to Delaware Tech, but, on occasion, actually within the facility, where more than 30 musicals, dramas, comedies, champagne-dessert and dinner theaters have taken place. From 1975, when we performed 1776 on the Delaware Tech stage to sold out audiences and rave reviews, until our dinner theater in 2000, PPP has enjoyed a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with Delaware Tech. The extraordinary cooperation that we received, and the special rental pricing when we needed to occupy the theater area for over two weeks at a time, has always been appreciated. And we particularly appreciated the significant honor bestowed on us years ago when we were selected to receive Delaware Tech’s Arts and Humanities award. Even today, Delaware Tech and the Possum Point Players are in a mutually satisfying arrangement with the children’s educational theater programs coordinated by our Executive Administrator Mary Cahill. And it was with some regret several years ago, when, following a commitment to over $800,000 in renovations to our theater, that we were not receptive to preliminary discussions about becoming Delaware Tech’s resident theater company. Our current facility offers the most financially and logistically advantageous location for our major productions. For that reason, I for one, understand and support Delaware Tech’s search for alternative artistic programming. But, I think Del Tech’s failure to mention what Possum Point Players has done for arts in this community, as well as other theatrical and artistic organizations within reasonable proximity to Georgetown (Second Street Players, Southern Delaware Choral Society and the Milton theater group to name a few) seems to send a message, particularly to the new residents
that were mentioned in the article, that Delaware Tech is the only place to see quality artistic programming in Central Sussex County. I think that is doing a disservice to those new residents and others. While some Possum Point Players members and supporters share my sentiments, I am not speaking on behalf of them or the organization. Jim Hartzell Georgetown
An Equation for success
Epworth Christian School’s partnership with Nemours and the Sussex County Health Prevention Coalition is proving to be a winning combination. In this year’s efforts to solidify the partnership and to make true on their commitment to partner with Nemours in the fight against childhood obesity and their pledge to healthy living, ECS has taken great strides to ensure students and families are afforded every opportunity to live out these principles. Determined not to contribute to unhealthy diets, the school launched its assault by removing soda machines, eliminating candy from the school’s snack store, increasing physical activity beyond state requirements, and instituting a Nutrition and Healthy Cooking class. Building on the mind-body research and considering the challenges of adolescents, ECS is excited to have implemented, this year, a segregated physical education curriculum that meets four days a week. A class where middle school boys and girls are separated enables efforts to be focused on sports-specific skill development while eliminating some of the pressures that come from having boys and girls together. ECS vendor, Pepsi, was very cooperative and happily replaced the soda machines with water – plain and flavored, juice and G2 from Gatorade. The students seem to be adapting well and there are only a few teachers going through chocolate withdrawal with the new additions to the snack store. This commitment to healthy living has also given us an opportunity to partner with and reach out to our medical community. Last month, Dr. Lehman of Seaford provided a small grant to the school enabling them to purchase the Catch Kids Kit for Grades K-2. This gift was a seed that blossomed last week when unexpectedly the school was granted the entire Catch Kids Equipment and Curriculum set for Grades K-8 – a gift valued at over $5,000. The ECS family consists of 165 students and like any caring family we want our kids to be healthy and strong. We are excited about this partnership and the benefits that it will provide for our students and their families as well as our staff. The decision to take it up a notch in this year’s curriculum was preceded by the ECS Summer Camp where daily snacks included fruits, vegetables and other healthy snacks. In addition to the physical activities included in the camp program, students walked one-half mile, three days a week to a neighborhood pool where they swam for two hours.

Good luck with that. Republicans stormed the walls to vote for the second version. I’ve heard nothing more of the parachute provision. That’s what has me worried. Chalk up another shafting for the American public. The bill went from three pages to a manual script. When I was in the retail business and we went through a difficult business season, whether it be the result of the weather or the economy, and we had clothing and shoes that would be going out of style sitting on the shelves, my rich uncle didn’t hand me a check to cover my losses. The business term is, “I ate them.” Every time the stock market has shown a little sign of recovery, either Bush, the Treasury secretary or the Federal Reserve chairman, raises their ugly heads and the market goes to hell in a hand basket. What confidence the American public has in these guys! The bailout was supposed to give confidence to Wall Street and bolster the stock, but the opposite has happened — down 5,000 points since last year. Brokers are saying don’t panic, stay the course, you know the market always goes higher than the peak before stocks drop. Easy for you to say. What little savings Americans have is all they have and they can’t afford to lose it.
I think Americans have finally had enough of George Bush’s economic and foreign policies and are willing to take a gamble with the Democrat Party. Polls indicate enough is enough. I’m afraid what four more years of the same will do even to the rich. Have you noticed that during this election very little has been said about abortion, guns or environmental issues? During the debate, on CNN, they have a scroll at the bottom of the screen which shows voters reactions to the questions and answers. The chart rises and falls depending on the level of interest. When McCain brought up about staying the course in Iraq, his scroll almost flat lined like someone who just died. It was the same case when he spoke about health care. When Obama spoke of the economy and his plan for recovery, his scroll hit the top bar. History is repeating itself. When Clinton took office America was hurting from the leadership of another Bush and Clinton’s campaign manager James Carville told his workers the election was about, “the economy stupid!” On a side note, I understand the Secret Service is canvassing Georgetown in preparation for Return Day and is already making changes in the way the event is handled. Joe Biden will be there either as vice president or senator. He wouldn’t miss that day for anything and, who knows, he may bring a guest.

Casper face and all. Friends would come by dressed as witches with black pointed hats and black nylons and ghosts peering from under, long, white, flowing sheets. I would be walking down the sidewalk with my older brother, both of us wearing our 10-cent store mask, dressed in work shoes and a pair of jeans. We looked like we were more likely to be robbing a convenience store than going Trick-or-Treating. But, as Mom would say when we complained about the lack of a full body costume, “How about you don’t go at all?” So, I suppose given that option, we were very satisfied with our attire.

The good old days were tastier, Doing the Towns Together cheaper and less complicated LAUREL AND DELMAR SOCIALS
The grocery cart was piled high with instant potatoes, chicken flavored dressing, macaroni and cheese, frozen pizzas, family sized containers of beef and vegetables, and an assortment of other quick to prepare foods, with two under-40 young housewives chatting together and laughing as they discussed the shortness of time for food prep at their homes. The wide variety of quick to prepare foods caught my eye and I could not help but hear their discussion as they waited in the checkout line ahead of me at a local large grocery store. One lamented to the other on the high cost of food, the ever increasing appetites of her teenaged children, the rushed pace of her life and life in general. All the while she was placing her purchases on the conveyor belt for the cashier to checkout her purchases. As the basket emptied, she commented to her friend, “All of this food will be gone in a few days, I will have run out of food ideas, and I am so rushed all of the time I barely have time to read the latest cookbooks anymore.” It wasn’t that I was intentionally eavesdropping as I waited my turn to pay for groceries, it was that last comment about reading a cookbook and the sight of the fast prep foods that caught my attention. The friend of the purchaser agreed with her dilemma as far as a shortage of time and her interest in the latest cookbooks by television cooks. As these two young women chatted, I knew they were of the generation that had definitely not had either sewing or cooking classes as a required class while they were in either junior or senior high school. Sometimes it only takes a little comment or situation to make one realize just how great the difference is in generations of women. For many generations home economics was offered to strictly female students while male students enrolled in shop or industrial classes. Females learned how to thread a needle, use a sewing machine, hem a skirt, sew on a button, make a simple skirt or blouse, advancing to more elaborate garments as they entered high school. Young male students learned to use a hammer, a saw, pliers, jigsaws and more complicated tools as they constructed small stools and bookcases, advancing to more complicated pieces of furniture. The basic sewing and construction classes would enable many students to advance in the food, clothing or furniture construction fields once they graduated from high school. Older graduates of Laurel High well re-

VIRGINIA ‘MIKE’ BARTON member classes and skills taught by Carolyn Leh, Mabel Moffitt Evans, Jean Mears Kelley, Colleen Moore, and Mr. Baytop. As adults, these former students look back on their classroom instruction period with mixed emotions. Some remember having to rip out stitches and re-sew a garment, or sand a rough edge over and over, or even remove a coat of incorrectly applied stain or varnish. These same students also remember the joy and pride they felt when their project was completed and passed inspection. They still give credit to those junior high and high school teachers who helped them prepare for life and learn skills they employ as adults. Those classes are long gone from the curriculum. In today’s world, the main task is finding someone to repair a garment or piece of furniture and do it properly. Iron-on tape, quick-stick buttons, safety pins, are readily available, or, in many cases, the garment that needs repair is tossed into the throwaway pile. In the case of furniture repair, many younger males haven’t a clue as to how to improve a wobbly leg on a chair or stool. Hanging a picture on the wall is a major production nowadays. First one must get a special gadget that scans the area and focuses a beam of light on the wall where the picture will hang, making sure the wall is smooth and square. Then comes the tape (metal) to measure accurately the distance from top to bottom, up and down from ceiling to baseboard. Then the drill, the wire, the hanger, the hammer, tape and a whole slew of other items. Finally the nail is inserted in the wall with a fancy gadget or hammer. Gets a bit complicated, but any housewife with a nail and hammer can complete the hanging up the new wall treatment in 20 seconds. No fancy gadgets or measuring devices. The finished installation, the preparation and the treatment whether it be food or clothing or constructed items, are all a generational thing. Glad to be a part of the aging population. It is much simpler in many ways. And, in the case of food prep, it’s cheaper and so much tastier.
Let me just untangle here some erronous information I reported here last week. It seems that I stated something about the class of ‘59-wrong-it is the Laurel class of ‘60- preparing, well ahead, for a fiftieth reunion and members of that class will meet at the Georgia House on Nov. 5, 11:30 am. For more details and information call Carolyn Calio at 875-3770 and leave recorded message if no answer. A recent few days visit to Carroll, Oh. was much enjoyed by Molly Collins, her son and wife , Paul and Linda, as they were guests of Paul’s son, Paul, Jr. his wife, Charity and their four children, Lindsay, Chelsa, Trey and Cameron. The visit was highlighted by a big, celebration for Chelsa’s sixteenth birthday. The members of the Laurel New Century Club met at the Georgia House on Oct. 6 for their first meeting of the year. Following lunch and a business meeting they presented guest speaker, Norma Jean Fowler, president of the Laurel Historical Society, who related the Society’s events and activities of the past year, including activities at the Cook House and up-dates on restoration of the Studley house. She stated that there will be interesting programs coming up for the present year, two of them in November, one on the history of fire fighting and another later in the month on quilt documentation. These programs are noted in the membership letter and more will be published concerning them just ahead of the dates for said programs. I presume that Robert Wheatley had a great birthday celebration on Oct. 6 as he and Billie Jane were in Chicago with their daughter, Celeste, her husband, David, and their two “favorite” grand children, Hunter Jane and Rider. They have now returned home just in time for early fall harvesting. The Red Hat ladies “Lunch Bunch” had their monthly breakfast at the Laurel Dutch Inn on Saturday, Oct.11. They are now planning a Halloween celebration at the Laurel Pizzeria on October 21. Their only member to have a birthday this month was Golda Williamson on Oct. 13. Jane Burlingham has requested that I inform members of the Laurel class of ‘69
there will be a meeting on Sat., Oct. 25, 12:30 pm at the Georgia House, concerning making plans for a fortieth reunion. They need a good group so please plan to attend if possible. Members of the Laurel Garden Club held their monthly meeting at St. Philips’ Parish Hall on Sunday, Oct. 12. This was “new member” social with many goodies furnished by the members and after enjoying them the president introduced guest speaker, Vicky Thompson of Seaford who discussed with the group her subject, “What it takes to be a Master Gardner.” The next meeting for this group will be on Nov. 13. Plan to visit Laurel’s Haunted House for thrills and scares, Friday’s and Saturday” till halloween and then on Halloween night Oct. 31. That will wind it up for this year. Another Banner week for special birthday wishes. For Joe “Bulldog” Hitchens, Oct. 20. For Rachel Waller from The Knitting Circle, Oct. 21, to David Elliott on Oct. 21, happy birthday from, Mom and brothers Joe and Mark. To Ann Jones of Delmar, best wishes, with love from husband, Keith. We express our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of: Edward H. Ralph, Marion “Pete” Henry, Gloria Clara Cooper, Ralph J. O’Day, Minnie E. Jackson, Myka Shea Johnson, Mary Elizabeth Murphy, James Junior Beatty,Sylvanus Baker, Mary Frances (Hill) Owens. We continue with prayers for our servicemen and servicewomen and for our friends who are ill, Robert Parsons, Elmer Hearn, Harriett MacVeigh, Steve Trivits, Herman Cubbage, Martha Windsor, Donald Layton, Sr.,Alvin Lutz, and Hattie Puckham. Happy October birthday wishes to: Ernestine Brown, Irma Ellis (17) Elma Nystrom (18) Carl Wilkins (21) and Grace Blackmore (23). Nineteen more days to decide who you’re voting for!

Opinion Bus safety questions and answers
Editorial School Bus Safety Week National School Bus Safety Week is October 20-24. Susan B. Messick, Transportation Specialist for the Seaford School District, is trying to get parents and students to understand the benefits of riding a bus to school instead of traveling by personal vehicle. She notes that the American School Bus Council has information on its website that shows that students are 13 times safer traveling to school in a bus, than by other modes of transportation. Additionally, it is “Green,” more environmentally sound. She submitted the following advice from the American School Bus Council on what parents can do to help keep kids safe on and off the school bus: • Walk your child to and from the bus stop. If possible, wait with him or her until the bus arrives. • Be alert to traffic. Check both ways for cars before stepping off the bus. • Wait for the bus driver’s signal before crossing the street. • Walk in front of the bus; never walk behind the bus to cross the street. • While waiting for the bus, stay in a safe place away from the street. • Before leaving the sidewalk, look for the flashing lights. • Never go under the bus to retrieve something you’ve dropped. • Teach your child the importance of staying seated on the bus. • Get to know your bus driver. He or she is a trained professional who sees your child every day; he or she would be happy to tell you about the safety features on the bus and the responsibility drivers have for keeping their young passengers safe. • Get to know the parents of other riders. You will learn about the other children your riding along with your child. • Sign up for American School Bus Council updates (americanschoolbuscouncil.com) to stay informed about the latest news and information on school buses.

Following are some facts about school buses and the complexities of the bus driving profession. Check out the following website for more: americanschoolbuscouncil.com. Q: Why does it matter how kids get to school? A: School bus ridership addresses a variety of major concerns. Safety: School buses are the safest form of transportation for students – and many times safer than riding in the family car. Traffic: Every child riding a school bus represents one fewer car on the road, especially in the congested area in and around schools, where children are at highest risk. Environment: Students riding in the school bus instead of the family car means fewer car trips and less pollution. School buses are school readiness vehicles, providing free access to an education for millions of children in America through healthy, safe and secure transportation to schools. Every day, more than 470,000 school buses deliver 25 million students to school safely and reliably, so they arrive at school ready to learn. School buses provide over 10 billion passenger trips each year. Q: How safe is the school bus? A: The National Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Department of Transportation and other authorities agree that school buses are the safest form of transportation for getting children to and from school. Some 475,000 school buses transport 25 million children – more than half of America’s school children – each day, and complete 10 billion passenger trips and 4.3 billion miles per year, almost always without a serious incident. Riding in a school bus is much safer than using any other form of transportation – including personal vehicles and railroad and airline travel. According to the Transportation Research Board, part of the National Academy of Sciences, a child is 13 times safer in a school bus than in other modes of travel. Children
driving to school or riding with other teenage drivers are 44 times more likely to be fatally injured than in a school bus. (“The Relative Risks of School Travel,” 2002.) The American School Bus Council works to keep school buses safe, secure and reliable. Q: Why don’t school buses have seat belts? A: School buses are the safest way to transport your children to and from school. The color and size of school buses make them easily visible and identifiable, their height provides good driver visibility and raises the bus passenger compartment above car impact height; and emergency vehicles are the only other vehicle on the road that can stop traffic like a school bus can. School buses are carefully designed on a different transportation and protection model than the average passenger car. The children are protected like eggs in an egg carton – compartmentalized, and surrounded with padding and structural integrity to secure the entire container. The seat backs are raised and the shell is reinforced for protection against impact. There are other differences to consider between your car and your child’s school bus. In your car, you can supervise your child and ensure that your child’s belt remains properly secured. School buses use what is called “passive restraint,” meaning all a child must do to be protected is simply sit down in a seat. School buses also must be designed to be multi-purpose, fitting everything from a six year-old to an 18 year-old senior on the high school football team in full uniform. Sometimes it’s two to a seat, other times three. Because of this, emphasis is placed on protecting the entire valuable cargo. Q: Is it healthy for my child to ride the school bus? A: The school bus keeps children – and the environment – safe. By providing convenient transportation

for millions of school children, school buses reduce the number of cars that would otherwise be on the road. The school bus helps parents save money on gasoline, reduces traffic congestion (especially around school walking zones, where our children are most vulnerable) and also reduces the nation’s dependence on oil. Model year 2007 school buses are 60 times cleaner than those built before 1990, and, as older buses are replaced with newer, cleaner burning ones, they will further reduce our pollution and fuel usage. In addition, since 2003 school bus operators have retrofitted more than 12,000 school buses with emissions-reduction technology through the help of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean School Bus grants. If all 25 million children who ride the school bus each day were driven by their parents instead, a substantial amount of additional carbon monoxide would pollute the air each year. School bus manufacturers also are making large investments in new diesel, natural-gas, electric hybrid and other engines to further reduce pollution. Q: Why should I get involved? A: Our children are our nation’s most precious resource; protecting them is our highest priority. Many people are not aware that the school bus is the safest way for children to get to school, and the more children who ride the school bus, the fewer who are injured and even killed traveling to and from school. Many parents erroneously believe that driving their own children to school helps protect them from injury, yet thousands of children are injured each year, many fatally, traveling to and from school in cars. No matter how careful parents are, they cannot predict or control other drivers, and personal vehicles just can’t protect children the way a school bus can. The school bus is driven by a professional driver with extensive training, and the school bus is designed for maximum student protection.

Bridgeville: If you lived here, you would be (having fun) now Bridgeville Commission President Joe Conaway said Monday: “If it's the fall and you’re not in Bridgeville, you're not doing anything.” Between 35,000 and 40,000 people were attentive to his advice this past weekend as they filled the streets of Bridgeville for the 17th annual Apple Scrapple Festival. Conaway said he was somewhat upset that Seaford Mayor Ed Butler won the Mayor’s Scrapple Sling “King of Sling” title this year. He was the winner last year and plans to come back. The best part of the Apple Scrapple Festival is that it benefits local non-profit organizations that in turn provide special services to help improve the quality of life in Bridgeville. Alma Fleetwood, secretary of the event for the first 16 years, said the library, churches, school groups, senior center and
Final Word fire company are a few of the ones who benefit. One problem this year concerned the traffic patterns. Conaway said DelDOT suggested the limiting traffic to one route into and out of town. “Success depends on being able to get people in and out of town,” Conaway said. He said this will improve next year as road projects are completed. Bridgeville’s next big event is Punkin Chunkin starting on Friday, Oct. 31, with the award winning Charlie Daniels Band and Randy Owens. Conaway may be right: “If it's the fall and you’re not in Bridgeville, you're not doing anything.” Bryant Richardson Publisher

Dr. Kevin Carson, superintendent of Woodbridge School District, “won?” the Kiss the Pig contest. A $1,000 donation from state Rep. Ben Ewing helped him top Bridgeville Commission President Joe Conaway (looking on) and Bridgeville Police Chief Allen Parsons for the privilege. Conaway said he was rooting for Carson to win. “I have aspirations for a lot of things in my life, but kissing a pig is not one of them.” Friends of the Bridgeville Library benefitted from the fundraiser.
