Laurel council upbeat as presented with $8 million USDA check

By Tony E. Windsor The atmosphere at Laurel’s Monday night Mayor and Council meeting was upbeat as representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Office stopped by to present a symbolic check for $8 million. The money is to be used for the town’s expansion of water and sewer lines out to US 13. Hailed as one of the most significant economy advancements for Laurel, Mayor John Shwed expressed his appreciation on behalf of the town to Jack Tarburton, State Director of the USDA Rural Development Office, who presented the mock check to the council. Shwed also credited the hard work of town staff, including Laurel Operations Manager Jamie Smith, Public Works Supervisor, Woody Vickers, and Finance Director, Mary Intracaso for the planning and application process for gaining the funds. The engineering firm of George, Miles and Buhr was also credited with helping to obtain the funding. Councilman Donald Phillips said he is aware that the significance of the USDA funding has been expressed, but he feels it is important for the community to be aware of just how important the water and sewer project will be for the future of Laurel and its citizens. He said first and foremost as much as one-quarter of the total cost of the estimated $6.2 million project will be given to the town in the form of a $1.5 million grant, which requires no payback by the town. He said the balance of the project costs will come through a low-interest loan spread out over 40 years. The rate of the loan is 3.37 percent. Phillips said that two existing loans being paid back by the town to cover costs associated with the town’s waste

He said it will enable the town to spread out the tax burden of new water and sewer and not impact the existing tax payers. “This project will help our library and help our school system,” he said. “The increase in our property tax base will do as much as anything in our community to help our school system.

Not wanting to do major construction in the intersection of Del 9 and US 13, the lines would then move south and cross over US 13 to provide water and sewer to businesses on north US 13, including Laurel Junction and the Station 7 Restaurant. The plan calls for installing a lift station and a water tower on the property at Laurel Junction. A later second phase would involve running water and sewer lines out along Sussex 468 (Discount Land Road) near the Food Lion Shopping Center, north of Phase 1. The two projects would then be looped and provide utilities along both sides of US 13. On Oct. 18, at 7 p.m., Laurel Council will hold a Public Hearing to communicate the project proposal and financing details to the public, as well as give residents and property owners an opportunity to comment. No Public Referendum is required. The Mayor and Council have scheduled a vote on the project for Nov. 4.

Airport lease is granted for Del Tech to expand aviation program

A year-old aviation maintenance education program at the Sussex County Airport will get a chance to spread its wings a bit more, thanks to support from Sussex County that will help provide new opportunities for residents and boost the local economy. County Council, at its Tuesday, Sept. 28 meeting, approved a 30-year lease agreement with Delaware Technical & Community College to expand its aviation maintenance program at the County owned airport east of Georgetown. In lieu of monthly rent, the lease of a nearly 1-acre parcel off Rudder Lane would be for the college to build a new hangar, where students would learn how to work on airplane engines. The expansion would be the second of a three-phase plan to grow a new aviation maintenance program at the college, which launched an airframe maintenance training program three years ago. The airframe maintenance program, the first of what will eventually be three disciplines under the overall aviation maintenance program, saw its first group of students complete their coursework earlier this month. “This agreement continues Sussex County’s role in the shared mission to provide enhanced educational opportunities for Sussex Countians, and that will allow our residents to train

here and better compete for jobs here in the aviation industry,” County Administrator David B. Baker said. “With Del Tech’s plans to expand their program and our goal to attract more aviation-related businesses to our airpark and the community, this will further establish the Sussex County Airport as a manufacturing base and strengthen the overall economy.” Sussex County Council, Del Tech and PATS Aircraft LLC in October 2006 announced a partnership to create an aviation maintenance associate degree, in part to help guarantee a pool of qualified, skilled mechanics for local manufacturers. The airframe maintenance courses were the first to be developed, training students to become airframe mechanics who service all parts of an airplane, with the exception of the engine, propeller and instruments. No such program existed in Delaware prior to the course’s creation. In 2007, Sussex County sowed the first seeds of that partnership, providing more than $1.2 million in funding to purchase and renovate a 9,750-square-foot hangar at the airport. The building was converted into classroom and practical laboratory space for the airframe maintenance training program now underway. Dr. Ileana Smith, vice president and campus director for Del Tech’s Owens Campus, said the power plant technology program

Laurel police get federal support

By Tony E. Windsor Last year, after making application to the federal government for two patrol officers, Laurel Police Chief Jamie Wilson learned his request was not funded. On top of this he was also informed that the Laurel School District, which had paid the salary and benefits for an additional patrol officer to work as a school resource officer, would no longer fund that position. This left Wilson stretched for manpower. Last week the Laurel Police Department finally received a bit of good news as Wilson was informed that another application made to the U.S. Department of Justice this year, seeking two new officers had been reviewed and his department will be given funds to pay for one patrol officer for three years. Although not getting the two officers he had hoped for, Wilson is happy that he will be able to get back one of the two officer positions he lost in his budget this fiscal year. In all, the U.S. Department of Justice “Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS)” program will award the Laurel Police Department $178,206.00 as part of its Cops Hiring Program (CHP). The money will be spread out over a three-year period to pay for the salary and benefits for a new police officer. The COPS program was developed as part of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. Since that time the program has funded the addition of 122,800 officers to over 13,800 law enforcement agencies nationwide. The CHP is one of the COPS programs that are helping to support the enhancement of local, state, federal and tribal law enforcement in the U.S. The CHP grants provide 100 percent funding for entry-level salaries and fringe benefits for three years for newly-hired, full-time sworn officer positions, or for rehired officers who have been laid off or are scheduled to be laid off on a future date as a result of local budget cuts. At the conclusion of the three years of federal funding, the Laurel Police Department must retain the police officer position awarded under the CHP grant for a minimum of 12 months.

Laurel Pride in Bloom

Proud of Laurel? Want to be a part of our beautification process? You can now donate to purchase or maintain planters that change with the seasons, displaying Laurel’s community pride year round. There are several levels of giving. Adopt a planter - as a business - to give back to your customer base; as an individual or family - to memorialize loved ones; as an organization - to promote group recognition. You can also donate for seasonal plantings or toward maintaining a planter in general. Any amount you contribute will help maintain and add interest to our already beautiful town of Laurel. Beauty creates interest and interest creates promise; and Laurel has opportunity. For more information, contact Barbara Wise at 875-5537. Contributions of any amount can be made to Laurel Pride in Bloom, c/o The Bank of Delmarva, 200 E. Market St., Laurel, DE 19956.

The CHP requires that the funded position be added to Laurel’s law enforcement budget with local funds, over and above the number of locally-funded positions that would have existed in the absence of the grant. The Laurel Police Department was required to affirm in its CHP grant application that it plans to retain the additional officer position following the expiration of the grant and identified their planned source of retention funding as coming from the town’s general operating budget. Currently the Laurel Police Department has 13 sworn officers, down from a roster of 16 officers last year. The police department also has one officer out on long term disability, leaving 12 officers on duty. Wilson said it is not clear when the CHP money will be coming to the town to allow the start of the hiring process. However, he said the earliest class at the Delaware State Police Academy where a new officer would be trained, is not until late January 2011. So, it could be up to a year before the new officer hits the streets in Laurel. This year the CHP has awarded funding to 379 law enforcement agencies across the country to hire, or rehire, 1,388 police officers at an estimated cost of $298 million. In Delaware, in addition to Laurel, five municipal police departments have received funding for new officers. Police departments in Camden, Delmar, Frankford and Milton have received funding for one officer and the City of Newark received funding for three officers.

Laurel referendum vote is split

Voters in the Laurel School District on Monday passed the first part of a referendum by a vote of 1214 to 1200. By this narrow margin voters approved the new certificates of necessity for a new high school/middle school, acquisition of land near the high school, a new elementary school, the demolition of North Laurel Elementary School, and selective demolition of the Laurel Middle School. The second question on the referendum failed by a vote of 1255 against and 1128 for. The second question asked residents to approve the construction of new athletic facilities or the renovation of the existing facilities. Reaction in the community will be the focus of an article in next week’s Laurel Star.

Local contractors working on the Russell home made significant in-kind contributions to the completion of the home. They include Mike Edwards and Jimco Electric. Whirlpool also donated to the completion of the house. The next homes available to qualifying families who live or work in Sussex County will be located in Laurel. The twin town-homes feature first floor bathrooms, three or four bedrooms and kitchen appliances plus washer and dryer.

Greenwood company receives National Environmental Respect Award for 2010 Willard Agri-Service of Greenwood was named the National Environmental Respect Award winner for 2010. The company received this designation in July at a special ceremony in the U.S. Capitol Building. Winners were selected May 6 in Willoughby, Ohio. The Environmental Respect Awards, sponsored by CropLife® magazine and DuPont Crop Protection, are the agricultural industry’s highest recognition for environmental stewardship among United States agricultural retailers, those who serve farmers and ranchers with the nutrients, pest control and agronomic information and services critical to effective crop production. Each year a panel of industry experts gathers to recognize achievement in environmental stewardship, professional excellence, and community involvement. Willard Agri-Service won the award based on excellence in site design, in-plant storage and handling procedures, proper application and leadership in safety and stewardship among customers and employees. Willard Agri-Service has taken many extra steps to ensure the environmental impact of their business is minimal. Some steps include, sampling and testing storm

water before release, installing three-tier containment systems on all bulk chemical storage tanks and conducting both daily and monthly tank inspections. “Our challenge is to find ways to lessen agriculture’s impact on the environment,” says Michael Twining, general manager at Willard Agri-Service. “We must promote the positive message of agriculture being a preferred land use over industrialization or urbanization.” The company received a personalized, Environmental Respect Award crystal sculpture at the ceremony and participated in a stewardship forum, hearing speakers from the World Wildlife Fund, the Center for Global Food Issues, CropLife International, The Fertilizer Institute, the Ag Retailers Association and Croplife America. Representatives from Willard will also have the opportunity to visit an Environmental Respect Award winning business in another country on an ag tour next year. “DuPont is pleased to congratulate the winners of the 2010 Environmental Respect Awards and applauds their accomplishment in environmental stewardship,” said Jim Collins, president, DuPont Crop Protection. “These leaders are helping to advance environmental safety and the safe use of

agricultural products, and we hope they will inspire others who share our passion and desire to elevate environmental stewardship around the world.” “It’s through the conscientious efforts of these ag business and the crop producers they serve that this nation is assured of a safe and bountiful food supply,” said Paul Schrimpf, group editor of CropLife magazine. “We’re delighted to be able to gain them some recognition for their environmentalism.” More information on the Environmental Respect Awards can be found at environmentalrespect.com.

As an owner’s advocate, Whayland will represent Edgewater’s interests to all other parties, including designers, permit agencies, general contractors, construction managers and equipment suppliers.

Carper supports legislation

Sen. Tom Carper recently voted for legislation to support small businesses and encourage job creation. The Small Business Jobs Act was approved by the Senate by a vote of 61 to 38. The legislation would help entrepreneurs start small businesses by providing additional access to much needed capital and it would encourage growth among existing small businesses. Small businesses are a leading source of job creation in America, with nearly all net job creation in the United States from 1980 to 2005 occurring in firms that were less than five-years-old.

Route 54 project awarded

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announces that Mumford & Miller Concrete, Inc., of Middletown, is the low bidder for the Route 54 Improvements Project. The firm submitted a bid of $8,111,451, the lowest of four bids received. Widening for a 14-foot wide center leftturn lane will improve the safety of the roadway, both for vehicular traffic as well as bicycles and pedestrians. Improvements will also include 6-foot wide bike lanes and 5-foot wide sidewalks. The Route 54 construction will extend from the intersection of Routes 20 and 54 east to the Mallard Lakes Development. This area was identified for safety improvements due to high development growth in the corridor over the last several years. Construction will begin this fall and will be completed in approximately 627 calendar days.

Carper decries China’s poultry tariff Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) recently released the following statement regarding China’s announcement that it would be imposing a tariff on U.S. poultry: “China announced that it is imposing import tariffs on American poultry. I am disappointed that China has moved forward with a shortsighted tariff on U.S. poultry imports. This hefty tax certainly hurts U.S. poultry producers, including the chicken producers in my state who in recent years have counted China as one of our biggest foreign customers. The tariff also hurts Chinese citizens who will now have to pay a lot more to enjoy U.S. poultry products, which are a major staple of their diet. This announcement is unfortunate and does not help U.S.-China trade relations. I am hopeful that we will reach a satisfactory resolution to this situation, and look forward to working with my colleagues to be as helpful as possible in addressing this important issue.”

Terry Downing finds greatest enjoyment helping with causes By James Diehl

F

or 14 years, Terry Downing has been riding the historic Woodland Ferry – first on the “Virginia C,” and, more recently, on the newer and more modern “Tina Fallon.” Along the way, he’s accumulated an impressive list of what his captain calls his “regulars,” men and women who greet the long-time deckhand with familiar greetings and engage in conversation with him – they also take out their wallets on occasion to contribute to one of Downing’s many charitable causes. Among the organizations Downing has supported over the years are the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society. This past weekend, he was busy drumming up support for a walk organized by the American Diabetes Association. “It makes me feel good; I’m proud of myself because I think I do a good job doing things like that,” says Downing. “If somebody needs help, I like to help them if I can.” At 52 years old, Downing has overcome many challenges in his life – they’ve all led

A former student at the Howard T. Ennis School in Georgetown, life hasn’t always been easy for the Seaford native. But he’s rarely ever lost his signature smile, according to Bill Bless, a more than 13-year captain on the Woodland Ferry. “There isn’t anybody who doesn’t like Terry. He’s just a great guy who will do anything for anybody,” says Bless. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen him downtrodden, except for when his mother passed away; he was actually heartbroken by his mother’s death. But, other than that, he’s always had a smile, no

Terry Downing has worked as a deckhand on the Woodland Ferry for the last 14 years, making many friends and raising money for several worthwhile causes. He’s been jokingly called “the mayor of Seaford” by friends because of his involvement in the community he’s called home his entire life.

matter how bad things are.” When Cora Downing passed away in 2005, her eldest son’s world suddenly became much more difficult. Of upmost urgency at the time was the issue of money; Downing didn’t have enough of it to give his mother a fitting sendoff. That troubling time, says Bless, shows just how likeable his long-time deckhand is in the community and with his co-workers. “When his mother died, everyone in the southern district of [the Delaware Department of Transportation] passed the hat to raise money for her funeral,” says Bless. “To me, that shows just how likeable he really is.” Despite his disability, Downing likes to be involved in the community. He lives by himself, but he’s rarely ever home, preferring to walk the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach.

He also enjoys going bowling or fishing or traveling around the country – he still talks about a trip he took to the Hawaiian Islands a few years ago. But he also likes to make a difference. He’s volunteered and participated in the Special Olympics for years, he washes emergency equipment for the Seaford Volunteer Fire Department, he even worked toward and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout a few years ago. It’s all about being an integral part of the community, a goal he’s certainly accomplished with years of diligence and hard work. “I always wanted to be a Boy Scout and one day someone asked me to join,” remembers Downing, who achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the mid-1990s by planting Continued to page nine

Police Journal Purse stolen at Food Lion

On Sept. 29 at 5:44 p.m., Seaford Police officers were called to Food Lion on Sussex Highway for a theft that had just occurred. The victim was shopping when the defendant, Kevin O. Stone, 48, of Bridgeville, removed her purse from the cart when she was looking in another direction. As the victim turned back around, she observed Stone running with her property toward the exit. The defendant fled the store and was last seen going around the Seaford Eagle Diner. Seaford Police checked the woods behind the diner and located Stone going through the victim’s purse. Stone was taken into custody without incident and the property was returned to the victim. Stone was arrested, charged with theft, processed and arraigned by video phone with J.P. Court #2. He was released on a $250 unsecured bond pending a trial at a later date.

Three charged with shoplifting

On Sept. 29 at 2:10 p.m., Seaford Police were notified of a shoplifting incident which had just occurred at Walmart in Seaford. According to Walmart personnel, the subjects fled with two tv’s in a green Buick with Maryland registration. Officers located the vehicle traveling southbound on Sussex Highway and conducted a traffic stop in the area of Burger King. The driver, John T. Hanna, 60, of Salisbury and front seat passenger Amy

L. Donoway, 27, of Chestertown, Md., were taken into custody. Jacob M. Bowling, 27, of Princess Anne, Md., exited the vehicle from the rear and attempted to flee. After a brief struggle, Donoway was taken into custody. Located and recovered from inside the vehicle was assorted drug paraphernalia, a syringe of heroin and approximately .1 grams of crack cocaine. Bowling was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital after complaining of breathing difficulties where he was admitted for further examination. Both tv’s were recovered and returned to Walmart. Hanna was arrested and charged with shoplifting, possession of shoplifter’s tools and conspiracy. Donoway was arrested and charged with shoplifting, possession of shoplifter’s tools, conspiracy, possession of hypodermic syringes, possession of heroin and four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. Bowling was arrested and charged with shoplifting, possession of shoplifter’s tools, conspiracy, possession of hypodermic syringes, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of crack cocaine, resisting arrest and two counts of offensive touching of a law officer. The defendants were transported to the Seaford Police Department and arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court #2 in Rehoboth. Hanna was committed to the Department of Corrections in Georgetown on $4,000 secured bond. Donoway was com-

mitted to the Department of Corrections in Georgetown on $8,500 secured bond. Warrants are on file for Bowling pending his release from Nanticoke Hospital.

Police catch alleged burglars

On Oct. 2, at 12:40 a.m., Seaford Police received a report from a victim, a 21-yearold female, in the 400 block of Pine Street, Seaford, for a burglary which had just occurred at her residence. Officers determined that the defendants, Vladimir J. Senatus, 20, of Seaford, and Antonio Whitaker, 30, of Seaford, gained entry through an unlocked door and removed jewelry. The defendants fled after the victim awoke and observed them inside the home. Several minutes later Seaford Police received another report of a burglary, from a 45-year-old male, in the 100 block of Poplar Street. Officers contacted the victim who advised that a TV and video games were taken from inside the residence. Officers located Senatus and Whitaker walking in the area of Pine and Poplar Streets. The stolen property was recovered and returned to the victims. The defendants were transported to the Seaford Police Department for processing and arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court #3 in Georgetown. Senatus was charged with two counts of burglary, possession of burglar tools, two counts of conspiracy, theft over $1,500, theft under $1,500, offensive touching and carrying a concealed dangerous instru-

ment. He was committed to the Department of Corrections. Whitaker was charged with two counts of burglary, possession of burglar tools, two counts of conspiracy, theft over $1,500, theft under $1,500 and offensive touching. He was also charged with a capias for failture to appear on a warrant out of Superior Court. He was committed to the Department of Corrections.

Man charged in sexual assault

On Sept. 29, Delaware State Police arrested a Rehoboth man for crimes that are alleged to have occurred from 1991 through 2002. Delaware State Police detectives began an investigation into inappropriate sexual contact on May 27. The investigation came to the attention of Delaware State Police when a victim, now 33 years of age, came forward to authorities. Delaware State Police have arrested Tyrone A. Gray, 44, of Fox Creek Drive, Rehoboth, after presenting its case to the State of Delaware Attorney General’s Office, Georgetown. On Sept. 28, Delaware State Police was notified of an indictment that was obtained for the crimes committed by Gray. Gray was arrested at his home and taken to Delaware State Police Troop 7, Lewes, for formal arrest processing. Gray was presented before Justice of the Peace Court 2 and remanded to Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $390,000 cash bond.

Terry’s joy comes in helping others Continued from page eight

1,000 daffodil bulbs in Kiwanis Park. “But becoming an Eagle Scout was hard because you have to make a plan for it. But I did it; it was a nice project.” A big Shorebirds and Orioles’ fan, an avid fisherman and bowler and a general lover of life, Downing is jokingly called the “mayor of Seaford” by his caseworker and by his friends – when he hears that familiar moniker, the smile always returns to his face. Many days, Downing can be found at the Seaford firehouse. Whether it’s washing trucks, sitting in on training classes or just “shooting the breeze,” the long-time fixture in the Seaford community is sure to be turning some heads. “They just needed some help washing the trucks and I thought I could help them,” Downing says rather matter-of-factly. “It just makes me feel good because they all know me and they say I’m doing a good job.” When he’s not busy working on the ferry, or at the fire department or participating in the Special Olympics – he’s even jumped into the ocean in February a few times for the organization’s annual Polar Bear Plunge – Downing can usually be found raising money for a worthy cause. Sometimes he knocks on doors, sometimes he asks his friends and

co-workers to help out and often times he’ll ask for donations from riders on the Woodland Ferry. Whatever it takes to raise funds – Downing raised $530 this year for the Relay for Life, organized locally by Dr. Marie Wolfgang, on behalf of the American Cancer Society. “It’s a lot of work to raise money for the Relay for Life, but Dr. Wolfgang has been doing it for a long time and she always signs me up for it,” says Downing. “A few years ago, somebody asked me to do it and I said I would. I just enjoy helping out.” In the past, Downing has also volunteered with other community organizations, including Nanticoke Memorial Hospital. But he had to give that up because he just had “too many things going on.” He certainly does stay busy – Terry Downing is nothing if not a shining example of how one can overcome a disability and make a positive difference in his or her community simply by being positive and willing to help out. He may not actually be the mayor of Seaford, but he does, as Bless likes to point out, “need to have his finger on the pulse of the community.” For Downing, it’s just nine simple words he’s decided to live his life by – “It just makes me feel good to help out.”

Developer of proposed New Horizons subdivision appeals denial By Tony E. Windsor A residential developer is appealing a decision by the Sussex County Planning & Zoning Commission denying a subdivision of 42-acres of property near Trap Pond State Park that would help facilitate a 50home project. The development, the New Horizons Community, is being planned by the Diamond State Community Land Trust (DSCLT), and is proposed to include 50 homes being marketed to potential home buyers who earn 80 percent of the county’s median income or lower. The homes are expected to cost in between $115,000 and $150,000. The project is slated to locate just West of Trap Pond, north of Wooten Road (Road 72) and across from Hudson Road (Road 458). In July the Sussex P&Z Commission denied the subdivision following a controversial public hearing that included several people living in the area of the proposed project who are in opposition to the development. The county expressed six main reasons for the denial including: • The applicant (Diamond State CLT)  proposed the project as “moderately priced housing,” and the county said it has intended that type of housing to be located in areas where there is likely to be funding for infrastructure improvements. • The subdivision is planned for an  area that has a low priority for potential mass transportation opportunities which are needed to support moderately priced housing. • The subdivision application is not in  keeping with the county’s state-sanctioned Comprehensive Land Use Plan. • The application was offered as a  “cluster” development which does not meet the county’s codes which state that such a development must be located in a “Town Center,” a “developing area,” or an “Environmentally Sensitive Development Area.” • The cost of the development, estimated at $10 million, suggests, in the county’s opinion, that “this is not moderately priced housing at all.” • The landowner has previously sold  larger road front lots which have been used to build houses in the 3,000 – 5,000 square-foot range. These homes, according to the county, create an inconsistency which leads to a conclusion that the subdivision will have an adverse impact on property values based on county codes. At the time of the public hearing in June, residents who opposed the project were not swayed by the presentation of the developer. Mike Smith who resides a few hundred feet from the proposed develop-

ment said he fears the project will impact the quality of life in the Trap Pond area. He said information submitted by the developer to the county as part of the application process indicates that there will be impact on the area in ways including traffic flow. He said information in the developer’s Preliminary Land Use Service (PLUS) application to the Sussex County indicated that a traffic flow study showed about 550 traffic trips per day. He estimates this would increase the current traffic flow by 75 percent. “This increased traffic flow in our neighborhoods is in addition to the decrease in property value that will take place,” he said. Smith, a native of Laurel, has lived in the Trap Pond area for about two years. He said he moved to this area because of its quiet, peaceful environment. He feels that projects like the New Horizon Community threaten the way of life that many people in that area sought when locating there to live. “This project has the potential to negate the reasons I chose to live in this area,” he said. Georgetown attorney, James Fuqua, of the law firm of Fuqua, Yori and Willard, P.A., issued the notice of appeal to Sussex County Administrator, David Baker. In the letter to Baker and the County, Fuqua said the appeal by the DSCLT is based on grounds that the Planning & Zoning Commission decision: was not based on an “orderly and logical review” of the evidence; did not involve the proper interpretation and application of the subdivision and zoning laws; and misapplied and/or or misinterpreted applicable sections of the subdivision and zoning ordinances. The Diamond State Community Land Trust argues that the county was wrong to “confuse” the cost of the project ($10 million) as it relates to the issue of moderately priced homes. “The Commission’s statement is illogical and confuses the cost of development with the goal of providing moderately priced housing to county residents,” Fuqua said. “The project cost included land acquisition, engineering, infrastructure planning & construction, and home construction among other expenses. The cost of those expenditures is irrelevant to the review of a subdivision application by the Commission.” Fuqua went on to say that it is not judging whether the subdivision is moderately priced housing, but whether the subdivision complies with the applicable Land Use Ordinances. Diamond State Community Land Trust is asking the County Council to reverse the decision by the Planning & Zoning Com-

mission denying the subdivision and either approve the subdivision request or hold a new Planning & Zoning Public Hearing using “applicable standards of the Subdivision and Zoning Ordinances.” The New Horizon Community is described by the DSCLT as a wise use of land and on its website the organization states, “The cluster design provides a number of advantages including more efficient land use, preservation of wooded and open space, and lower infrastructure costs; over half the land will remain in trees and open space. In addition to the cluster design, the entire community will be surrounded by tree buffer. A generous area set aside for a community garden and potential community-based agricultural enterprise is also a foundational part of this community plan.” The proposed design of the community includes children’s play yards, all purpose courts, outdoor cooking area, and a community building for gatherings, meetings of the homeowners association, and other activities. There are also plans to provide walking paths to reach Trap Pond State Park. Another opponent of the project, Diane Callaway, sent letters out to promote attendance at June’s Planning & Zoning Commission’s Public Hearing. She and her husband are building a home on the southwest side of Trap Pond and are concerned about the potential impact of the development. “This development will be built on a parcel of land which is almost entirely wooded. This subdivision is the first of its kind proposed in Sussex County and if it is approved by Planning and Zoning, there will inevitably be more in our community,’

Callaway said. “We are fighting this subdivision from a legal, environmental and planning aspect. The quiet peacefulness and safety is why we all chose to live here and raise our families here.” “My concern is that they are building this development in such an environmentally sensitive area,” she said. “It borders land that is state protected land. I feel they are mitigating the storm water issue and I am sure there are more appropriate places to build. They should put this type of development closer to a town center.” DSCLT information on its website concludes that the residential project is what Sussex County needs and is supported by the Delaware State Housing Authority, Delaware Housing Coalition, Sussex Housing Group, NCALL, Delaware Community Foundation, Deutsche Bank, Citi Foundation, JP Morgan Chase and GMAC Bank, Bank of America. “The 2008 Sussex County Comprehensive Plan cites support for the Diamond State Community Land Trust and ‘encourages more limited home equity projects... i.e. community land trusts...” as one way of meeting the critical shortage of homeownership options available to low- and moderate-income families,’” the organization says. The DSCLT says that data shows Sussex County having the largest affordability gap in Delaware between Median Household Income and Median Housing Price as of the 4th quarter 2009. The information they present says that the price of a home considered as “median” is $237,000, while the affordable price is $156,954, a difference of $80,046.

MORNING STAR • OCTOBER 7 - 13, 2010

Laurel property owner demanding action from the town By Tony E. Windsor Frustration seemed to run on both sides Monday night when a Laurel property owner challenged the town’s chief Code Enforcement Officer during a Mayor and Council meeting in reference to property issues. Laurel resident Fred Adams continues to express his frustration about the condition of properties in his neighborhood. Adams, who resides on East 6th Street, has come to Laurel Mayor and Council meetings on multiple occasions to voice his concerns. On Sept. 20, Adams presented his case before the council and made it clear he is not happy. Adams said he works to keep his property maintained, but there are dilapidated properties near his home that bring his property value down. “I try to keep my property up,” he said. “Because the town has installed water meters my water bill is now higher than my electric bill. This is out of bounds. As hot as it has been this summer it costs me more to pay for my water than the air conditioning to cool my house. The town water is way too high. What am I getting for my money except to have my property value go down?” On Monday, Oct. 4, Adams was back at town hall and once again seeking resolution for his concerns about deteriorating properties in his neighborhood. During the Sept. 20, meeting of council, Mayor John Shwed requested Adams take a list of his concerns to Code Enforcement Officer Paul Frick. On Monday night Adams said he did as the mayor requested, but feels nothing has been accomplished. “I met with Mr. Frick, but he says there is noth-

ing he can do about the issues I brought to his attention,” he said. “I get the impression from talking to Mr. Frick that the town can’t afford the lawyer fees to do anything.” In reference to a deteriorating home on the 300 block of East 6th Street, Adams said Frick informed him that if it were possible to find out who owns the property he knows of someone interested in buying it. However, Frick said he has been unable to have a bank or an attorney for the property return any of his phone calls. Adams said after talking to Frick he set out to investigate the ownership of the property. “I spoke to the person who owned that property and he told me the town should take that property over,” he said. “I found out the bank that holds the property is in Texas. I found out who owns the property and what bank is involved because I want to do as much as I can to see that something is done about that property. I am frustrated by the way my neighborhood looks. It is not my fault. I pay my taxes and I take care of my property. I pay the high taxes while other people’s properties bring my property values down.” Adams said he could not sell or refinance his home because the bank would look at comparable property values in his neighborhood. “What would they look at as comparable,” he asked? These properties are worthless. If the town can’t afford to do anything, then where do we go from here?” Frick, who was present at the council meeting, said he has tried to line up a buyer with the bank that is involved in the property, but the bank has failed to return

any of his calls. “I should not be brokering this deal, that’s not my job. But, I want to do whatever I can to help get this property taken care of,” he said. The lawyer who is involved in that property is local and won’t return my calls either. I have done all I can legally do with that house.” In another issue, Adams raised a concern about a shed that was upgraded on a property near his house and he believes someone is now living in the house against town codes. He took this concern to Frick as well. Frick said that his meeting with Adams was not scheduled in advance and Adams “hit me cold, with no notice.” He said he was waiting on customers at the time and had to take time away to speak with Adams. He said Adams did talk to him about the shed, but he informed him that he has no evidence to support that someone is using the property as a residence. “The property owner got a building permit from the town to build the shed and did eventually do an addition,” he said. “But, we have no evidence to support your claim that someone is living in the shed. We need proof before we can take any action. That is the law and I have told you that I am not the one who writes the laws, I just enforce them.” Frick said he has “sat on” the house watching to see if there is evidence of anyone living in the shed, but has not found anything unusual. “I have sat there nights and weekends, but I have not seen anything to lead me to believe there is anyone living there,” he said. “I cannot stay there 24 hours a day.” Adams asked Frick if he had considered

walking up to the shed and knocking on the door. “There are curtains in the windows of that shed and frilly curtains on the door. There is also an air conditioner in the wall. Have you thought about just knocking on the door,” he asked? “Someone was taking trash out to the curb from that shed this morning.” Frick said none of what Adams described is enough to warrant his taking action to accuse the property owner of using a shed for residence. “I have a garage and I have an air conditioner in the wall and curtains on the windows, but I don’t live there,” he said. “Seeing someone taking trash out to the curb is not evidence; that means nothing. As far as me knocking on the door, why would I? I am not going to take action with no evidence of wrongdoing and put the town at risk of a lawsuit.” Hearing Frick’s statements, Adams responded saying, “I’m done. It is all I have got to say.” “I will be happy to talk to someone who has actually been in the shed,” Frick said. “I never reveal sources who confide in me with information, so that should not be a concern. I am just asking for your help on this.” Mayor John Shwed told Adams that he understands his frustration, but issues regarding personal property are “touchy situations.” He said it is very hard sometimes to get the evidence that is necessary to take official action. “I believe Mr. Frick is making a good faith effort to address your concerns about these properties,” he said. “But, we cannot act arbitrarily. We have to have evidence to base a case on. We will continue to monitor the situation.”

MORNING STAR • OCTOBER 7 - 13, 2010

We believe ‘times that try a man’s soul’ will pass There is an old expression that most of us are quite familiar with. “These are the days that try men’s souls.” We have heard the words for years, have a tendency to not even think about them, and suddenly the words pop up into our mind once again and we give them some serious thought. On these crisp, bright, crystal clear early autumn days we reflect on just what has happened in not only our area here on Delmarva since the bitter cold and snowy days of the beginning of the year, but to some of the happenings throughout this year of 2010, a year rapidly coming to a close. We simply cannot forget the piles and piles of fresh snow and ice that covered our Delmarva Peninsula in the early months of the year of 2010. Schools closed, roadways closed, travel brought to almost a standstill, mounds of snow taller than the average man. To stand inside the warmth of our homes and look out the window, the snow was a beautiful sight. The drifts created a panoramic view such as we had not seen for years and years. At first the snow, the drifting, and our imagination created lovely thoughts in our minds. But then, after a few days of isolation in our homes, we began to be more realistic and acknowledge the fact that the bitter cold, added to the snow, was interrupting our placid basic lifestyle. Parents of school-age children were practi-

Moments With Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton cally tearing their hair out at the roots since for the first time in a long while they were forced to remain inside their homes day after day. The reality of the severity of the snowstorms and the roads that were difficult to travel on became a seemingly insurmountable problem. In due time, the snow finally left us, roadways were open, kids were back to school, and it was business as usual in our everyday life. Then came spring, a normally beautiful time of year. But this past year the spring brought drought and an entire new set of problems. Before we knew it, summer had set in upon us and we were faced with some of the hottest days some of us could ever imagine. An entire new set of problems filled our plates to overflowing. New challenges must be met. Now, here it is the beginning of fall and

Doing the Towns Together LAUREL AND DELMAR SOCIALS Sarah Marie TriviTS • 875-3672 A small group of travelers left Laurel early last Thursday morning hoping not to run into that woeful weather as they headed for Raleigh, N.C. Tom and Mona Wright, their daughter, Carolyn from “Philly,” and Mona’s sisters, Melinda Thornton and Molly DeCoster, headed there to attend a “stork” shower for the Wright’s younger daughter, Marion Campbell. Marion is expecting a baby boy sometime in November, perhaps a Thanksgiving gift for the Eric Campbells and the Wrights. Beth Elzey hosted a family birthday party at her home in Bethel last Friday night, Oct. 1, for Bonnie Daigle. No years were divulged to me, but I did hear that the room heated up a bit when the candles were lit up on the cake. Happy belated wishes to Bonnie. And — speaking of Beth Elzey, she was our smiling and bubbly waitress as we enjoyed our lunch at the Christ Church Bazaar last Saturday. The soup, salad fare was one which has been an annual tradition there for many years and I have been a customer for this event those many years, I think. They also displayed and sold many very attractive items pertinent to both fall and Christmas and a number of delicious jellies, jams and relishes for the pantry shelf. They thank everyone who participated in any way to make it a huge success. Just returning from a scenic Dawson Bus Tour to Massachusetts, Ann and Keith Jones of Delmar report having a most glorious tour in that area, accompanied

by “just perfect” weather. They visited Hyannis Port, viewed closely the Kennedy Compound and the Kennedy family place of worship as well as Cape Cod and many other of the state’s high points. Ann said they were so pleased to have a tour guide, very knowledgeable, to see them through their travels. The Laurel Lioness group will begin a new season on Thursday night (tonight) with dinner meeting at the Laurel High School and the meal served by “My Turn to Cook.” That busy group at Melson’s United Methodist Church (Delmar) will hold their 26th annual Fall Bazaar on Oct. 16 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. They will offer the usual, fall, culinary items, oysters, chicken salad, homemade ice cream and many other menu selections. Also featured will be vendors’ wares, a blacksmith shop and antique tractors. So come on out for a super Saturday. It was a girl’s weekend out, so I’m informed, as Charlene Meade, Sally Bradshaw, Dale Oddo and Kim Trivits took to the Blue Ridge Mountains to help Debbie Matalon in Gainsville, Va., celebrate her birthday. I’m willing to bet that those hills were alive with the sound of (not music) but female echos all weekend long. At the Friends of the Laurel Library monthly meeting, fund raising for the coming year was discussed and funds for the Children’s Winter Reading program were donated for that purpose. Meantime, the

this past week we had the monsoons descend upon us from the heavens. There seemed to be no ending to the rains that came down, creating an entirely new set of problems for many of us. During the snows of the winder months, our stream was frozen over, the snow banked high on either side of what was once Jim Cordrey’s and Mr. Carey’s field, creating a beautiful scene. Then came the long, hot and dry days of summer and the stream became totally dry. No longer could we hear the chirping of the various creatures that inhabited the banks of the area. The tadpoles were gone; the frogs’ chirping was stilled and weeds filled the area. The ditch banks continued to grow and still required mowing, but the wildlife all disappeared until the cooler days of September (the few we had) came back on the scene. During this past week, what with the monsoons upon us, the stream is filled once again and flowing freely. In fact, now we watch the banks and wonder whether the meadow will be full of water, threatening to flood the old goat house and the pump area. It is times such as these that we must think of the positives in our lives and try to take a strong attitude toward the good things that we are able to enjoy in this life. This has been a year of challenge for many of us. We have been forced to make the best

of situations over which we have little or no control. We just We just have to believe that all will work out well for each one of us, have trust in our doctors and those who are trained and skilled, and maintain a strong belief in the good Lord above, that all will work out well for each of us. It is at times such as those we have each endured this past year that we must just believe in the old saying, “This, too, shall pass.” All we must do is look around us, sometimes not at too great a distance, and we will realize that each of us in our own way and our own situation have the love and support of our family members, dear friends who are sincere in their caring, and keep the faith. We could sit and become depressed each in our own given situation. But morbid thoughts and self-pity never did accomplish anything good. Each of us must look beyond our own cloud of dismay and gloom and if we look hard enough, we will see the light at the end of the tunnel, the rainbow that will bring brighter days, the smile of an innocent little child as they take their first steps in this big, wonderful world. We know deep down inside, that there is a rainbow for each one of us. After all, the Christmas catalogs are beginning to fill our mailboxes! Proves we’ve “gotta believe!”

“friends” cookbooks are on hand at the library and we suggest that they would make a great holiday or wedding present for friends you care about.

We continue with prayers for our service men and women and for our friends who are ill: Ralph Gootee, Shirley Rehal, Terry Whaley, Rita Baker, June Benson Powell, Mary Jane Phillips, Robert Truitt, Conner Niblett, Jean Foskey, Betty Chandler, Hazel Baker, Donald and Hazel Brumbley, Cecile Jones, Calvin Hearn, Jean Henry, Catherine LeCates, Sandy Jones Lee, Janet Musser, Eddie Melvin and Susan Levredge.

We missed, I think, an important birthday on Sept. 14, when the O’Neal twins, Denny and O.J., were celebrating a very first year. I think that the duo had no trouble blowing out one big candle. Best wishes — doubly — to the boys. Robert Wheatley jumped down off his tractor long enough to celebrate a birthday on Oct. 6. Happy fifth birthday to Branson Messick on Oct. 7 from Mee-Mee and Poppa with love and best wishes. Donna Cecil wishes her son, Shawn Messick, a happy birthday on Oct. 9. We express our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of: Gwynn L. Belote, Robert W. Mathis, Douglas Biggs, William “Bill” O. Collins, Deral M. and Dorothy “Dot” Eaves and Lorraine E. Riggin.

State suspends doctor’s license

Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock and the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline have issued a suspension of a physician’s Delaware license for engaging in activities which present a clear and present danger to the public health. Last month, the Maryland State Board of Physicians suspended Dr. George Shepard Jr. which triggered notification of all other states in which Shepard is licensed. Delaware’s Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline then began the process of seeking immediate suspension of Dr. Shepard’s Delaware license. Since September 2009, Dr. Shepard was involved in the oversight and day-to-day operations of American Women’s Services (AWS) on East High Street in Elkton, Md. In August 2010, one of the abortions Shepard performed at the Elkton facility resulted in serious complications for an 18-year-old patient. The board found that Dr. Shepard placed patients at grave risk for harm or catastrophic outcomes by participating in a medical practice arrangement in which second trimester abortions were begun in AWS facilities in New Jersey and completed at the Elkton facility after the patients were instructed to travel from New Jersey to Maryland. Dr. Shepard’s status has been updated on the Division of Professional Regulation’s online license verification service. This tool lists the status of 71,000 professional licensees in Delaware and can be accessed by visiting dpr.delaware.gov and clicking “Verify License Online.”

Finding activities for your child

By Dr. Anthony Policastro I often have parents enroll their children in after-school activities to help support their child’s self-esteem. There is a right and wrong way to do this. The list of activities is plentiful and includes sports, hobbies, arts and educational activities. There are several things to remember when selecting an activity. The most important is that the activity must be something that the child likes to do. Unfortunately, the only way to find out what that activity is, is to try different activities. One of the mistakes that parents often make is deciding that something they, the parents, would like to do is also what their child would like. Unfortunately, in other cases, parents may not have gotten the chance to do something when they were younger so they decide their children will do it for them. Another thing to remember is to select activities of various types. Some parents will settle on sports and their children will rotate from sport to sport. Their child might be a gifted pianist but they will never find out. We need to discover our children’s talents which is a lot more difficult than you would think. There are so many activities and so many talents that this is a very difficult job. A third thing to remember is how much activities cost. It is important for children to learn the value of money. One of the ways we do that is by teaching them that there are things the family can afford and things the family can’t. For example, travel baseball and softball are expensive propositions. If the family can comfortably afford them, then there is not a problem. If they cannot, they are simply teaching their children to live beyond their means. This may become future credit card debt in the making. A fourth thing is related to how much time activities take. Some activities can consume all of a child’s free time. They no longer have the chance to be a child. The extreme is the potential Olympic athlete who trains for hours every day. Their families might even move across the country to locate themselves near a good

coach. If the child goes to the Olympics, this may be worth while. However, if the child is not talented, they have missed a lot of their youth. Another thing I try to emphasize to parents is that it is important to find an activity for which the child’s peers can show that they respect the child for it. That is an important point to boost self esteem. Along the same lines, children like to hear their parents brag about them. There is one thing that does not work. In fact, when it happens, it clearly means that the child is in the wrong activity. It should be fun for the child. When a child is involved in an activity and they are not having fun, a change is necessary. If it is because they do not like the activity, they need to change the activity. If it is because the parent expects too much and criticizes them, they also need to change the activity. Self esteem is important in children. There are many ways to build that self esteem. However, there are also ways to do it incorrectly. A child can have fun and use their God given talents. A child can build self esteem. All of these can be done through a variety of activities. The challenge is for parents to find the activity that most suits their children.

Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service group meeting The Sussex County Radio Amateur Civil Emergency System (RACES) program will hold its next meeting for interested radio amateurs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, at the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center near Georgetown. The meeting is offered to radio operators interested in volunteering their time to assist the RACES program. The meeting

will be held in the training room of the Sussex County EOC, 21911 Rudder Lane, east of Georgetown. At this month’s meeting, Ron Block, a consultant on lightning protection and a representative for PolyPhaser, a worldwide producer of lightning protection products, will present a program on ‘Lightning Protection for the Amateur Station.’

Properly securing your child’s safety seat key to them surviving crash

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children 3 to 14 years old, according to 2006 figures from the National Center for Health Statistics. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 8,959 lives have been saved from 1975 to 2008 by the proper use of child safety seats. During National Child Passenger Safety Week (September 19-25), AAA Mid-Atlantic is reminding parents and caregivers to ensure their children are secured properly in the correct seats – every trip, every time. According to NHTSA, nearly three out of four child safety seats are not used properly, which is a grave risk when traveling. “Securing your children properly in age and size appropriate child safety seats – in the back seat of your vehicle – is the most effective thing you can do to protect them in the event of a crash. Additionally, AAA Mid-Atlantic recommends that all child passengers under age 13 should ride securely restrained in the back seat where they are the safest,” commented Jim Lardear, director of Public and Government Affairs at AAA Mid-Atlantic. AAA now advises parents of infants and young toddlers to secure their children in rear-facing child safety seats for as long as possible, maxing out the upper weight or height limits of the car seat. Researchers indicate that toddlers are 75 percent less likely to die or be seriously injured in a crash when they ride in a rear-facing car seat up to their second birthday. AAA recommends the following child passenger safety best practices: • Always read the car seat manufacturer’s instructions and vehicle owner’s manual. • Keep children rear-facing as  long as possible – into their second year of life until they reach the upper weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible seat. This will usually be around 30-35 pounds. • Once children outgrow the upper weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible seats, they

can ride in a forward-facing child safety seat. • Children should use a forwardfacing child safety seat until they reach the maximum weight (usually 40-65 lbs.) or height for the harness. • Delaware’s child restraint law  requires: • All children must be properly  restrained in a federally approved child safety seat appropriate for the child’s age, weight and height up to 8 years of age or 65 lbs whichever comes first. • Additionally, children 8  through 15-years-old are required to be properly secured in a seatbelt. • Children under 12 years old or  65 inches in height are still required to sit in the back seat if there are active airbags in the front passenger seating position. • Move children to adult lap/ shoulder belts when they are at least 4’ 9” tall (which usually happens between ages 8 and 12) and vehicle safety belts fit properly. • For all children under age 13,  the back seat is the safest place. Consulting an expert can be critical to ensure that children are secured in the safest manner possible. Parents and caregivers can visit the auto club’s Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education website at www.aaa.com/foundation and  click on the Child Passenger Safety link for additional information on child safety seats and resources for finding a certified technician to inspect their child’s safety seat and provide hands-on advice and instruction.

Sussex County RACES is a corps of volunteers assigned to aid the Emergency Operations Center during major disasters, providing a critical communications link in the event conventional radio, telephones or other forms of communication are down. The group meets the second Thursday of each month at the EOC to discuss issues related to preparedness.

Coming up next month, Bruce Carpenter of Bruce Carpenter Consulting LLC will discuss ‘Grounding and Bonding’ and the system that currently protects the County’s EOC. That meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 11. For more on the RACES program, visit www.sussexcountyraces.or John Ferguson at 858-5310 or k3pfw@arrl.net.

New administrators at Del Tech

FREE ADMISSION - Celebrate Columbus Day with a visit to the Treasures of the Sea Exhibit at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus. In honor of the holiday, individual admission will be free from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 11. The Treasures of the Sea Exhibit features artifacts including gold and silver coins, bronze cannons, emeralds and jewelry that were lost at sea in 1622 when the ill-fated Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha sunk off the coast of Florida. The exhibit is located in the Stephen J. Betze Library at Delaware Tech on Rt.18/404, Seashore Highway in Georgetown. This cannon is one of four on display at the Treasures of the Sea Exhibit at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus. Call 856-5700 for more information.

Carper rejects a postal rate hike Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), chairman of the Senate subcommittee with jurisdiction over the U.S. Postal Service, recently released the following statement in response to the Postal Regulatory Commission’s (PRC) decision to reject the latest postal rate hike: “I’d like to thank the members of the Postal Regulatory Commission and their staff for their work. I know this was a hard-fought and complicated case so I appreciate the thought and the long hours that went into producing this important decision. “The Postal Service is clearly in a financial crisis. It lost $4 billion last year and will likely lose as much as $7 billion this year once it closes its books for the fiscal year. Postmaster General Potter announced this past spring that, if nothing were done, the Postal Service could accumulate as much as $230 billion or more in losses by 2020. This is clearly an unsustainable path. In fact - if these trends continue and no major changes occur - I understand that the Postal Service will actually run out of cash by the end of fiscal year 2011, just a year from today. “The rate increase that was denied today would not have fixed the Postal Service’s problems. A number of observers argued that it could actually have made them worse. Even when our economy has fully recovered from this recession, the Postal Service will still need to deal with the fact that more and more people are turning to electronic communication to keep in touch with friends and family and to conduct their daily business. Postal management has done a tremendous job in recent years cutting costs, becoming more efficient, and reducing its workforce. But despite these efforts, more needs to be done to reduce costs and increase revenue, especially during the labor negotiations currently underway. Perhaps more importantly, Congress needs to clear the way

for further progress by passing legislation to free the Postal Service to execute its reform plans. “If we do nothing, we face a future without the valuable services the Postal Service provides. However, if we act quickly, we can turn things around by passing my recently introduced bill, the Postal Operations Sustainment and Transformation (POST) Act of 2010. This necessary legislation would give the Postal Service the room it needs to manage itself and avoid becoming the latest victim of Congressional gridlock. More specifically, my bill addresses the current budget issues plaguing the Postal Service by proposing a series of provisions including: easing postal employee pension and retiree health costs; addressing postal employee wages and benefits; allowing partnerships with state and local governments; and giving the Postal Service leeway to close post offices, market certain non-postal items, and eliminate Saturday delivery. “The Postal Service has put forth a plan that shows a commitment to further cost cutting and efforts to make their business relevant during these changing times. Achieving these goals will require a shared sacrifice on the parts of the Postal Service, postal employees and major postal customers.” Background The proposal was a 5.6 percent increase that would have gone into effect in January. The price of a first-class stamp would have increased by two cents from 44 to 46. The Postal Service was anticipating that it would generate $2.3 billion in revenue. It was filed under a process laid out in the 2006 Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act allowing the Postal Service to increase prices above the CPI rate cap during “extraordinary or exceptional” circumstances. The PRC is denying the request.

New sonography program begins at Delaware Tech, Georgetown By Lynn R. Parks

Lou Spoltore, VP operations for LIVE ON STAGE, Allan Kittila, SCCA board president, and Vince Verdi, the LOS area representative for SCCA, meet with the SCCA board to make selections for the artists to perform for the 2010-2011 Season.

Seaford Community Concerts Association attracts attention by Helen Skjoldagen, SCCA

Seaford Community Concert Association (SCCA) is envied by hundreds of concert organizers in communities throughout 40 states. Prior to each concert season, usually in July, two members of the SCCA Board of Directors and hundreds of other concert organizers from communities in 40 states, meet in Nashville to partake in Live On Stage annual national conference. Live On Stage views hundreds of submissions from managers, agencies and artists from around the world. They then select abut 40 submissions and present their attending affiliates an elite Roster of Attractions to choose from. During the last day of the conference the affiliates began talking about their community concerts to each other. The SCCA members answered many questions asked by their fellow affiliates, such as, “How does SCCA manage to attract concert audiences for 62 years? How do you manage to attract a full house for every concert?” The duo answered that in August, the SCCA mails a brochure showing the five coming attractions they selected, from the elite 40, to every previous year member, and to those who requested to be put on their mailing list. A person becomes a SCCA member when they return the application with the money due. The cost this year is $55 per adult, $120 per family, and $15 per student. Each payee is mailed an envelope containing a season pass (card) admitting them to all five concerts. Nearly 85% of the affiliates said they sell admission tickets at each concert for about the same price that SCCA charges for all five concerts. They also mentioned that they do not have a full house at every concert, nor could they pay someone to stuff envelopes, receive and send mail, or answer the phone. Their budget is tight. When the SCCA affiliate told them that every person on the Board of Directors, and some member pass holders, volunteer

their services and do everything that has to be done to make the concerts a success, they were surprised and envious. All five SCCA concerts, selected in August 2009 for the 2010-2011 season, are held in the 1200 seat Madden Auditorium of Seaford Senior High School. A membership pass must be shown to the ushers at the auditorium entrance doors before being admitted. There are some seats available for would-be concert members. Just call 6296184 or visit www.seafordconcerts.org. State your name, address and phone number and ask to have a brochure/membership application sent to you. The five concert attractions for this 2010-2011 season are: Thursday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.: Jim Witter, the Piano Men. Piano styling and voices for the 1970’s and 80’s of Billy Joel and Elton John. Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 8 p.m.: Riders in The Sky, a classic quartet who sound just like the famous Sons of the Pioneers, but revitalizing western music with their own wacky humor and wit. Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2011, at 8 p.m.: Classic and handsome baritone, Daniel Narducci and glamorous soprano, Sherri Seiden, will delight the male and female audience with their superb artistry. Tuesday, March 1, 2011, at 8 p.m.: John Davidson, the same John Davidson of television, movies, stage and Broadway, will have you tapping your feet and your voice humming to his vocal/banjo performance. Sunday, April 10, 2011, at 3 p.m.: Tamburitzans. The pride and joy of Duquesne University of Pittsburgh. SCCA contacted Duquesne University personally to sign up this fabulous group of talented students. The ten couples sing and dance in beautifully made costumes depicting the cultural heritage of Eastern Europe and its neighbors. When the performance is over, the audience will cheer, clap and stand, hoping the young performers would stay on stage a little bit longer. Sorry, these are college students that have a curfew and classes in the morning.

It hasn’t been too long ago that Missy Babinski, director of radiology for Nanticoke Health Services in Seaford, couldn’t hire people to operate Nanticoke sonography, or ultrasound, equipment. She had to engage sonographers who traveled from hospital to hospital. But soon, Sussex County will have a steady supply of people trained in how to operate sonography equipment. A twoyear associate degree in diagnostic medical sonography has just started at the Georgetown campus of Delaware Tech. The college has applied for national accreditation of the program. A similar program is already in place at the Wilmington campus of Delaware Tech. Nanticoke is among four area hospitals that are providing financial support for the Georgetown campus program. The Seaford hospital and Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Bayhealth Medical Center in Milford and Dover and Beebe Medical Center in Lewes chipped in to buy laboratory equipment, which cost $325,000. They are also paying the salary of the teacher for the program. “This partnership serves as a model of collaboration providing a pathway from education to jobs for our citizens in the vital healthcare industry,” campus director Ileana Smith said. Last Thursday, the college held a cer-

emony to dedicate the new sonography lab and to thank the four hospitals for their contributions. Del Tech president Orlando George said that the program fits with the college’s mission to “deliver the solutions needed to build and maintain a good economy” in Delaware. George also thanks representatives of the hospitals. “This would not have been possible without the support of our partners,” he said. Christy Moriarty, chairwoman for the diagnostic medical sonography department, said that the lab will give students in the program hands-on experience. “When they graduate, they will be well-prepared for entry-level employment,” she added. “They will be able to find jobs,” Babinski added. Louis Owens, a retired radiologist from Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and a college trustee, said that good training is very important because the quality of a sonogram is dependent on the skill of the sonographer. “To get a good diagnosis, you have to have a well-trained technician who is willing to work hard,” he said. Nanticoke CEO Steve Rose praised the students in the inaugural class. “What you will be doing can really touch people’s lives,” he said. “My hat’s off to all of you. What makes good health care is not equipment and it’s not bricks and mortar. It’s the people, and that’s a community that you will be part of.”

Festival to honor philanthropists La Esperanza, Sussex County’s leading non-profit provider of services for Latino clients, understands what it’s like to benefit from the generosity of others. Created in 1996 to consolidate various services for Spanish-speaking immigrants under one roof, La Esperanza has grown and flourished thanks to the support of many philanthropists and donors. During its 14th anniversary celebration on Nov. 13 at Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes, La Esperanza will bestow awards, named for recognized local Latino leaders, to the following organizations and individuals: The Arsht-Cannon Foundation will receive the Gonzalo Martinez Award, an honor that goes to an organization for advancing significant projects that benefit the Latino community. The Foundation maintains a strong commitment to assist and empower the Latino population in Delaware in general and, in particular, to Latino children. The Foundation provided $150,000 through the 2009 Delaware Hispanic Community Needs Grants to fund programs/projects that help Delaware’s Latino families improve their English-language skills.

I am not condoning this less than enthusiastic reaction to Carey’s blow to the head; perhaps he should have gotten precautionary medical treatment. I mean it is not every day that you have your forehead pummeled with a wooden bat. But, the truth is, when I was growing up, unless there was some evidence of potentially lost limbs or eyes, we did not go to the doctor or, God forbid, the hospital. It was not that our parents cared less about us. It was simply that years ago most medical treatment was administered by family. If I stepped on a nail, which I seemed to do at least once or twice a summer, or slashed my bare foot on a broken bottle, the remedy was soaking the wound in a salt water tub. Of course every cut no matter how significant was always treated with Merthiolate or Mercurochrome. These two topical antiseptic treatments were pink in color and one would sting more than the other, but I could never remember which one hurt the worse. So, as Mom approached with the small, dark-colored bottle I would begin to cry and beg for her to avoid this step in the treatment process. She would assure me that this would not sting, so I shouldn’t worry. As she applied the solution, I learned quickly that she had lied to me. But, in traditional mother style she would blow on the wound to help cool the sting. I always thought that was kind of neat.

We simply rarely went to a doctor for treatment. Today, children, including my own when he was a child, go to the emergency room or doctor’s office at the first cough or sneeze. I think with the availability of air conditioning and other modern day conveniences, our children are more susceptible to illness and in some ways are not as rugged as we were as kids. I can actually remember the times I was taken to a doctor or the hospital from the time I was born until I left home at 17. There were a total of three such visits in my childhood. One was at the age of about 10 when I was attacked by a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and had to be given 30 stitches to my chest area. There was the time that I had a particularly extensive case of poison ivy that totally covered my back and I had to visit Dr. Sarah Peyton’s office. Then there was the time I failed to call a baseball catch and collided with the center fielder and fractured my finger. The remaining childhood infirmities, including measles, mumps, chickenpox, whooping cough, the Asian Flu, nails in the feet, bats to the head and one incident in which I ran headlong into a parked pickup truck, all were maintained at home under the care of either nurse Mom or surgeon Dad. I made it through my childhood, so whether by design or accident, I suppose my parents knew best when it came to health issues. At least I think so.

Apple Scrapple Festival

OctOber 8 & 9 By Lynn R. Parks

ridgeville is getting ready for its 19th Apple-Scrapple Festival. A banner flies across Market Street, announcing to all those who pass under it that the festival is set for Oct. 8 and 9, and a wooden sign at the corner of Market and Main streets invites all to enjoy the many activities Apple-Scrapple will offer. The festival’s website, www.applescrapple.com, counts down second by second to Friday evening’s opening. “Only 3 days 15 hours 77 minutes and 15 seconds — 14 seconds, 13 seconds — left until the 2010 Apple Scrapple Festival,” it read on Monday.

The festival does two things for the community, organizers say. First, it offers a venue for local service groups to make money. Kiwanis and Lions clubs chapters sell oyster and scrapple sandwiches and the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department sells barbecued beef sandwiches. School groups and churches also get in on the action and the three-day carnival benefits the Bridgeville Public Library. Second, it draws attention to the area’s agricultural roots. Both apples and scrapple are produced in town and T.S. Smith and Sons orchards and packing house, founded in 1907, and Rapa Scrapple, founded in 1924, are

major sponsors of the festival. Apple Scrapple also brings crowds of people to Bridgeville, a small town with a population of about 1,600 people. In 1992, the first year of the festival, about 2,500 people came to town to see the sights. Recent crowds have been estimated at around 30,000. “Our festival is the best fall festival in Sussex County,” said chairwoman Bonnie Workman. “There is no charge for parking, all events are free and the food choices are phenomenal.” For this year’s festival Workman predicts perfect weather, especially for Saturday evening when the Fabulous Greaseband comes to town. Based in New Jersey, the band, which specializes in dance tunes from the 1950s

through the 1990s, plays up and down the east coast, primarily in the Washington, D.C., to New York City corridor. But there’s more than good food and good music behind the success of the Apple-Scrapple Festival, Workman added. “Our festival is successful because of the great committee and the cooperation of our town and the total community,” she said. “Bridgeville is a great place to call home.” Festival competitions With its scrapple carving and scrapple throwing contests, the AppleScrapple Festival has always been a place where the competitive could

John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail plan invites review The National Park Service Chesapeake Bay recently released its draft Comprehensive Management Plan/Environmental Assessment for the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. Public review of the plan is encouraged and comments may be made for 30 days. After the public comment period closes on Nov. 5, an analysis of the comments will be made and a final Comprehensive Management Plan (CMP) will be submitted to Congress. The CMP will guide management of the trail for the next 20 years. The Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, the first national water trail, commemorates the explorations of John Smith on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries in 1607-1609, tracing approximately 3,000 miles of his voyages.

Among the four alternatives for management of the trail, the draft CMP discusses the selection of the preferred alternative based on the analysis and findings of the NPS planning team as well as on public comments received during the planning process. The preferred management alternative offers greater advantages in protection of trail-related resources, interpretation and understanding for visitors, and public use and enjoyment of the trail. The full draft CMP is available for download at the trail’s planning website: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/cajo. The preferred method of comment is online at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/ cajo. Comments may also be emailed to CAJO_Superintendent@nps.gov. To see the trail’s fall newsletter focusing on the draft comprehensive management plan, and for more information, visit www.smithtrail.net.

Delmar football team scores four second half touchdowns in win over Archmere

By Mike McClure

The Delmar varsity football team improved to 3-1 with a 41-14 home win over Archmere last Friday night. The Wildcats, who outscored the Auks, 27-0, in the second half, face the Indians this Friday night in Delmar. “We didn’t do much differently. We made a few big plays in the second half. We didn’t have the ball much in the first half,” said Delmar head coach David

Hearn. “The defense played much better in the second half. It was a good team effort.” Archmere scored on its opening drive as quarterback Chris Ambrogi completed a 28-yard pass to Andrew Barksdale, ran for 16 yards, and found Mike Lyon on a 22-yard pass. Charlie Witsil ran the ball in from a yard out and Austin Hugh added the extra point for a 7-0 Archmere lead

This week in Star sports history

Worcester Prep boys’ soccer coach Tom Westcott, Salisbury, celebrated his 300th career win following his team’s win over Sts. Peter and Paul of Easton last week. When asked about his favorites memories, Coach Westcott commented, “It was September 28, 1976 when I coached my first game at Worcester. Greg Shockley, a sophomore, was our goalie and helped to record our first win, 8-2 against the Tome School. Greg, now a successful local businessman, was recently appointed by the Governor to serve on the Maryland Tourism Development Board. Greg is also on the BB&T Regional Advisory Board and the Maryland Restaurant Association Board, but he hasn’t forgotten his alma mater or his love of soccer. He is an assistant coach for our team in this 2010 season. That’s how it is with my players, their success, and their dedication.” Westcott is extremely proud of all his players and keeps in touch with many of them. Alumni visiting the school always want to see Coach Westcott, for he is an institution at Worcester Prep. This summer, one of his players, foreign exchange student Philippe Hennebert, now an international banker, came from Belgium to show his children Worcester Prep and to introduce them to Westcott. In the classroom, Westcott puts his coaching and motivational strategies to work. Students often say he taught them how to study; he taught them how to take tests. They’ll tell you how challenging his courses are, and they tell what a master teacher he is. “He brings biology to life,” said senior Matt Carey, Seaford, “and when he’s in front of a class, you know he loves science and teaching. You also know that he cares about you as a person and will do all he can to get you prepared for your future.”

Sussex Tech girls place second at Salesianum Invitational

The Sussex Tech varsity girls’ cross country team placed second in the large school division of the Rev. Joseph A. Beattie Salesianum Invitational last Saturday.

The Sussex Tech boys’ cross country team placed sixth as Robbie Robles came in 17th with a time of 19:05.

Sussex Tech varsity boys’ soccer team falls to Concord The Sussex Tech varsity boys’ soccer team fell to Concord, 2-0, in a non-conference match last Saturday. Concord held an 8-7 advantage in shots and a 3-2 edge in corners. James Smith recorded six saves in goal for the Ravens.

By Charlie Brown Insinger Performance, Inc., distributor for Sonoco Race Fuels, the official fuel of Delaware International Speedway has stepped up to make the purse for the two-day Delaware State Dirt Track Championships on Friday, Oct. 22 and Saturday, Oct. 23 even more attractive by adding to the Late Model and Small Block totals. The Late Model 50 lap main has been increased from $3,000 to $4,500 to win, matching the Big Block Modified payoff. Also matching the Big Block Modifieds will be the gambler portions of the purse which increases the winner’s share to $5,500 with a $50 gambler’s fee and a whopping $6,500 to win with a $100 gambler’s fee. On top of this will be lap leader money in all divisions. Thanks to Insinger and Sonoco, the Small Block Modifieds will also see an increase for their 50 lap main.

Added incentives have also increased with a $50 gambler’s fee upping the winner’s share to $4,000 and $100 gambler’s fee topping out at $5,000 to win. All gambler’s fees must be posted prior to qualifying. The Crate Models, AC Delco TSS Modifieds and the Mod Lites carry some of the best payoffs anywhere for these divisions. The 25-lap Crate Model and AC Delco features will each pay $1,000 to win that increase to $1,500 with a $50 gambler’s fee plus lap money. The Mod Lites’ 20-lap main will pay $500 to win and that doubles to $1,000 with a $50 gambler’s fee. Two day pit passes are just $55 with single day pit passes at $30.

Delmar football continued with 6:20 left in the opening quarter. Delmar answered with an 83-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Kevin “K.J.” Trader. Brady Scott booted the extra point to knot the score 16 seconds after the Auks’ opening score. The Wildcats’ defense forced a punt, giving the ball back to the offense on the 20. Frank Braham broke off a 47-yard run and added a six-yard gain on third and three from the Archmere 26. Delmar quarterback Alex Ellis ran for 11 yards before plunging into the end zone on a one-yard keeper. Scott’s PAT put the Wildcats on top, 14-7, with 9:34 remaining in the first half. The Auks were once again forced to punt, but the Wildcats fumbled the ball on the return, setting up first and 10 on the Delmar 26 for Archmere. Witsil ran for 11 yards and Ambrogi picked up 14 yards before scoring on a one-yard run. High’s extra point knotted the score at 14-14 with 3:07 left. Archmere got the ball back on the Wildcat 48 late in the first half and moved it to the 37 before Delmar’s Justin Ross recorded a pair of sacks to end the first half. Delmar opened the second half with the ball on the 35 and picked up a first down on a four-yard keeper by Ellis on third and one from the 44. Ellis had an eight-yard run before completing an 11-yard pass to Shaquor Majors. The Wildcats faced a fourth and four from the Auk 22 with De’Vaughn Trader taking the pitch from Ellis and turning it into a five-yard gain and a first down.

set up first and goal from the one. Keandre Whaley punched the ball in and Scott added the extra point for a 21-14 Delmar lead (5:51). Archmere began its next possession on the 26 yard line and advanced the ball to midfield before Cory Mattox recovered a fumble to give the ball to the Wildcats on the 48. Devene Spence had a 12-yard run, Braham picked up 35 yards, and Mattox finished off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run. Scott’s fourth PAT of the night made it 28-14.

yards for a touchdown. Scott’s extra point put Delmar on top, 35-14, with 55.2 seconds left in the third quarter. Archmere was plagued by bad exchanges between the center and the quarterback throughout the second half. On the next Auk possession, Whaley made them pay by recovering a fumble following a bad snap which sailed past Ambrogi. Whaley was later rewarded for his heads up play as he scored his second touchdown of the night with a two-yard run. The extra point by Thomas Gray was no good, but Delmar took a 41-14 lead into the fourth quarter and held on for the non-conference win. Braham ran for 125 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, Ellis picked up 40 yards on the ground, Kevin Trader had a kickoff return for a touchdown, Whaley scored a pair of touchdowns, and Mattox added a touchdown run for the ‘Cats.

fumble recovery. De’Vaughn Trader, Dakota Harmon, Erick Dennard, Jacob Tauber, and Kyle Dykes were also in on sacks. Delmar hosts Indian River this Friday night in the Wildcatsí first Henlopen Conference game of the season. “When we Kyle Dykes play them it’s always a great game,” Hearn said of the Indians, who feature a good quarterback and fullback. The win over Archmere marked Hearn’s 150th career win as the Wildcats’ head coach. Hearn credited his coaching staff for the program’s continued success. “We’ve got a great group (of coaches). We’re just really lucky to have as big of a staff as we have,” said Hearn.

Gas Lines

to close at $81.58 to post its best percentage weekly gain (6.7%) in over seven months.

Gasoline prices continued to retreat slightly last week, likely due to post-Labor Day demand drops and an uneventful Atlantic hurricane season in terms of refining disruptions in the Gulf of Mexico. The national average price for regular grade gasoline dropped 2 cents last week to $2.69 on Friday, 22 cents higher than year-ago. Crude Oil Prices Crude oil began last week with modest movement. However, lower than expected U.S. jobless claims and revised second-quarter economic growth data (up to 1.7 percent from 1.6 percent) fueled optimism for higher U.S. fuel demand, sending crude oil to a seven-week high Thursday above $79 a barrel. Oil’s rally continued Friday, due in part to a weakened U.S. dollar, with a rise of 2%

A look ahead It’s typical for prices to drop this time of year following peak summer demand. Barring any unforeseen events, and considering the slow rate of economic recovery and record crude inventories, motorists should expect continued price stability for the near-term and perhaps throughout the remainder of the year,” said Jana L. Tidwell, AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson. Local pricing On Tueday gas stations from Delmar to Greenwood were selling regular gasoline in a range from $2.539 to $2.699 a gallon. The low is two cents a gallon higher than a week ago and the high is six cents higher than a week ago.

Seaford’s Innovative Schools for New Tech Network group By Katie Gallup

Director of Marketing and Development, Innovative Schools

In the wake of Delaware’s receipt of the Race to the Top grant, schools across the state are considering new, bold education reforms. Seaford School District, in collaboration with Innovative Schools, a Wilmington-based non-profit public school support organization, and the New Tech Network, is preparing to embark on a ground-breaking path to reinvent Seaford Senior High School and introduce a new model of education in Delaware - a New Tech High School. The Delaware Department of Education has recognized Seaford School District for their bold plan by recently awarding the district one of two School Improvement Grants issued in the state. “With the reinvention of Seaford Senior High School, it is our intent to provide new, exciting learning opportunities that will benefit students, families and teachers alike. Ultimately, we want Seaford Senior High School to be a success and to prepare all of our students for the 21st Century. The district has been actively involving as many stakeholders in this decision making process as possible,” states Dr. Shelley Holt, director of Secondary Education in the Seaford School District. “We are thankful to our partners, Innovative Schools and the New Tech Network, for their immeasurable support.” To offer the Seaford community new, better learning opportunities, Seaford Senior High School will form two small schools, each serving approximately 400 students. Students will have the option to attend either the New Tech High School, or another new education program, which the district is still exploring with the Seaford community. Established in California in 1996, the New Tech High School model has been replicated in 62 schools serving over 18,000 students in 14 states across the country. With an emphasis on 21st century skills including critical and analytical thinking, collaboration and media literacy, the New Tech High School model employs project based learning (PBL) as the primary learning approach as it supports students’ application of knowledge, preparing them for college, life, and a career. Through PBL, technology and inquiry are used to engage students with issues and questions that are relevant to their lives. In New Tech classrooms, teachers become facilitators and coaches who guide students to take charge of their own learning, invent their solutions, and develop selfmanagement techniques. Teachers design rigorous projects aligned to state and district standards and customize them to their location and the interests of students. Students then work in teams to acquire and apply knowledge and skills to solve problems. Innovative Schools and the Seaford School District have forged a powerful partnership in the process of bringing the New Tech High School model to Delaware. Innovative Schools, a locally based non-profit public school support organization, has researched high performing

schools across the country that are pushing the boundaries of public education and offering, new, more modern learning programs. Recognizing that no one model is a perfect fit for every community, the organization has developed a portfolio of these high quality school models that have the potential to be replicated in Delaware. Serving as a partner with both the creators of the school model and local Delaware school districts, Innovative Schools then supports the replication of these models in ways that extend the district and school’s capacity and ensures the success and sustainability of the model. “Innovative Schools applauds the Seaford School District and the Seaford community for being the first school in Delaware to pursue this bold reform,” states Debbie Doordan, executive director of Innovative Schools. “We look forward to working with Seaford School District and the New Tech Network in bringing this first model to Delaware. We hope that Seaford Senior High School will be a school that the state of Delaware looks to as a model for replication throughout Sussex, Kent and New Castle counties.” In order to replicate the New Tech Network’s high school model, schools must first pass a rigorous application process to determine their ability to implement the model with fidelity. Seaford School District was the first school to be accepted into the 2011-2012 New Tech Network cohort. Seaford will utilize the 2010-2011 school year for planning and professional development associated with the new school model. Program implementation will begin in September 2011 with the 9th and 10th grade classes, scaling up to a full high school program by the 2013-2014 school year. “The New Tech Network is very excited to be opening our first high school in Delaware. We look forward to working with Seaford School District and Innovative Schools over the coming years,” states Tim Presiado, director of School Planning from the New Tech Network. “These organizations demonstrate openness to new ideas, an important component in replicating a new school model. The New Tech Network is deeply committed to this project.”

State receives funding for coastline

Sens. Tom Carper and Ted Kaufman (both D-Del.) and Congressman Mike Castle (R-Del.) have announced $8.33 million in federal funding to repair the Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach coastlines and $6.17 million in federal funding to repair the Fenwick Island coastline following damage from the Nor’Easter and Hurricane Ida in November 2009. On Aug. 16, Delaware’s Congressional delegation wrote to the Army Corps of Engineers to urge them to use the funding provided in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2010 to repair the Bethany Beach and South Bethany Beach coastlines and to repair the damage to Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach and Fenwick Island’s coastlines. A previous letter noted that for every $1 spent on beach nourishment, the federal government collects $320 in tax revenue.

Politics Carney speaks on delayed tax cut

John Carney, candidate for the open House seat in Delaware, has released the following statement on the decision to delay a vote on the Bush tax cuts until after the midterm elections: “I’m disappointed that leaders in Washington decided to delay a critical vote on extending tax cuts. Even though people across Delaware and our country continue to struggle during these tough economic times, politicians in Congress keep choosing partisan politics and gridlock over helping middle-class families.”

Democrats open more offices

The Delaware Democratic Party will celebrate the opening of two more campaign offices, Middletown and Lewes. With seven offices open across the state, the Democratic Party said it is showing incredible dedication to winning elections up and down the state and the ballot this fall. “The level of enthusiasm this year is incredible,” said Jim Paoli, Coordinated Campaign chairman. “We have had so many volunteers coming in to help us get out the vote this fall, I’ve never seen anything like it. It is a real testament to the support our candidates have earned, and a clear indicator that the Democrats’ message of moving Delaware forward through positive, tangible solutions is really resonating with voters this year.”

New Delaware Victory office

Delaware State Committee Chairman Tom Ross introduced the new Delaware Victory staff recently from GOP headquarters in Wilmington. The operation will be directed by Ashton Brown, who has previously served as the field staffer for the Sussex region in Georgetown. The operation will offer all the candidates running on the Republican ticket a wide array of resources to ensure high voter turnout in the general election. Victory will include an army of volunteers who will organize voter outreach, doorknocking and phone banks. The victory program comes as candidates across the state and the country have seen dramatic shifts by moderates and independents toward Republican candidates. For the first time in years, Republicans in Delaware have the ability to usher in a tidal wave of new officials to the national and state legislatures and county governments. Chairman Ross first proposed the idea for a victory program earlier this year as voter sentiment continued to turn away from liberal ideology and the economically dangerous policies coming from Democrats in Washington and Dover.

Vote for Carney, Coons, Shwartzkopf This is a year of clear choices for the Nov. 2 election in Delaware. Dependable, ethical, bright and responsible candidates - John Carney for U.S. Congress, Chris Coons for U.S. Senate and Pete Schwartzkopf for 14th District State Representative - are proven leaders who understand the complex issues which affect our state and our citizens. I have known Chris Coons and John Carney personally for many years, and Pete Schwartzkopf more recently. All three are tried and true leaders who are not afraid to make the hard decisions neces-

Pelosi’s Jedi Mind Tricks By Rick Manning Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives fled home this weekend to meet the voters with the hope that they can use Jedi mind tricks to get themselves re-elected. You can almost hear them waving their hands while saying, “Not passing a budget for the United States government doesn’t matter - vote for me even though I didn’t fulfill my most basic responsibility,” or “Pay no attention to the 14.9 million people who are unemployed, it is George Bush’s dog’s fault.” Rick Manning is the Communications Director of Americans for Limited Government

Thanks Sussex County

My name is Ken Matlusky and I ran in the Democratic primary for Delaware state auditor. I would like to thank the people of Sussex County for your kindness and support during my campaign. I had a fun and fantastic experience running for state auditor. I traveled all over the state meeting so many people, but I have to say that by far my most positive and favorite experiences were with the Kent & Sussex County Democrats. Even though I lost the election, I would like to thank the voters in Sussex for giving me a win in Sussex County. That means a great deal to me. Thank you again and God bless. Ken Matlusky

Times blasted for party coverage

Americans for Limited Government’s TimesCheck.com is decrying how the New York Times has covered the tea party movement this year. “Somehow average Americans who pine for constitutional limited government and the ideals of the founding period are considered extreme and unhinged. Meanwhile, White House officials and career legislators who expand the national debt and subjugate free enterprise are viewed as mainstream. That’s the world, according to the New York Times,” said TimesCheck.com Editor Kevin Mooney. Mooney pointed to a front page story that ran on Monday, Sept. 20, about Obama Administration officials who now speculate that their party’s fortunes could be uplifted by interlinking the GOP with the tea party movement. The sub-headline for that story read, “Democrats Could Cast

Rivals as Being Taken Over By Extremists.” “Although political analysts from across the political spectrum now anticipate significant Republican gains in the midterm

elections, an anonymous source claims that the tea party movement can be used as a foil against Republican prospects,” Mooney explained, noting, “But that’s really just spin, not hard news reporting.”

Letters to the Editor

Don’t lose your tax exempt status

The Internal Revenue Service is concerned because as many as 1,000 small community-based nonprofits in Delaware are in jeopardy of losing their tax-exempt status. The loss of this status could greatly impact the organizations’ charitable work and their donors’ potential tax deductions. Among the organizations that could lose their tax-exempt status are local sports associations and community support groups, volunteer fire and ambulance associations and their auxiliaries, social clubs, educational societies, veterans groups, church-affiliated groups, groups designed to assist those with special needs and a variety of others. The organizations that are at risk failed to file the required returns for 2007, 2008 and 2009, according to IRS records. The requirement to file is the result of a tax law change that occurred in 2006. For many of these small organizations, complying with the new law may be as simple as completing a 10-minute form online. They can preserve their exempt status under a onetime relief program the IRS announced in July, but only if they file by Oct. 15, 2010. The IRS has made numerous attempts to alert these organizations, but we are concerned that many may not have gotten the word. A list of the organizations that were at-risk as of the end of July is posted at www.IRS.gov along with instructions on how to comply with the new law. (Some local non-profits are listed.) We encourage everyone who is connected with a small nonprofit community group to make sure that their organization is aware of the law change and is in compliance before the Oct. 15 deadline.

Schools which refuse to implement and enforce effective antibullying policies are also to blame for the problem, but the buck doesn’t stop there either. For years, some churches and religious groups have opposed anti-gay bullying policies and legislation. In their view there shouldn’t even be any gay people, so what’s the problem? The problem is that their unscientific “ex-gay” rant sends the message to straight kids that gay kids are not okay. That message, as we saw in September, can be deadly. Douglas Marshall-Steele

Harassment can be deadly

Christine O’Donnell is an overnight  sensation – literally. Her primary night win over Rep. Mike Castle catapulted her from  obscure Delaware candidate to national celebrity within 24 hours. With this new-found attention has come much nonsense: an over-emphasis on statements made more than a decade ago about sexuality and witchcraft. These comments, while cringe-worthy, will not harm O’Donnell; she will turn the situation to her advantage by blaming the media for attacking her. Indeed, this attention may well help O’Donnell by directing attention away from her real weakness – a lack of experience. Instead of focusing on O’Donnell’s past comments, voters should think about what Republican leaders themselves would say about a Democratic candidate with the credentials of Christine O’Donnell. We can’t  know for sure but we have a good idea.

September was a bad month for suicides resulting from anti-gay harassment and bullying: • Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers freshman,  jumped off a New Jersey bridge after his roommate secretly filmed him being intimate with a man in his dorm room and posted it live on the Internet. • Billy Lucas, 15, hanged himself in  Indiana after enduring anti-gay harassment for years. • Asher Brown, 13, shot himself in  Houston, Texas, after anti-gay bullying, which his mother and stepfather characterized as constant. • Seth Walsh, 13, after years of being  bullied and accused of being gay, hanged himself in California. He died after nine  days in a coma. Anyone who allegedly harassed these kids to death bears great responsibility, but

Sarah Palin, in her introductory speech before the 2008 Republican National Convention, mocked then Sen. Barack  Obama’s work as a community organizer. “I guess a small town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’” she said with heavy-handed sarcasm, “except that you have actual responsibilities.” Palin was speaking about a man whose resume included being president of the Harvard Law Review, a civil rights attorney, a teacher of constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School,  a three-term member of the Illinois state senate and a U.S. Senator. What then would she say of an officeseeker, such as O’Donnell, with … no job? It’s hard to imagine the scorn that Palin, Limbaugh, Hannity and the rest would  heap on such a candidate. Obama also had the experience of being a husband and father; O’Donnell is single. I’m not saying it’s necessary to have a job and a family before running for office but I am saying that O’Donnell, at age 41, has yet to enter what most people – including, I assume, Sarah Palin – would consider the adult world of actual responsibilities. Other biographical details do little to inspire confidence. O’Donnell once owned a house but she sold it to a friend to avoid foreclosure. She graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University but the school had to sue her repeatedly to collect the money she owed. These facts don’t preclude her from running for office but, coupled with her lack of employment, they do raise the question of whether she’s a fully functioning member of society. Because of O’Donnell’s old video clips,  Democrats may not take her seriously. This would be a mistake. Those same clips show a smart and engaging young woman who believes what she is saying; she will campaign effectively. O’Donnell is also well-funded. Since the primary, she has received more than $2 million in donations, providing her with more than enough firepower. She also has the advantage an energized base. If Democrats don’t get out the vote, O’Donnell could win. I realize some voters, especially independents, may want to “send a message” but they should consider the messenger. O’Donnell’s candidacy rests not on experience or knowledge of the issues but on her ability to deliver speeches filled with easy talking points. Getting things done in the Senate requires an adult understanding of how the world works. Republicans used to trumpet “real world” experience. What happened? Senate rules allow even a single member to gum up the works of what is often called the word’s greatest deliberative body. Serving as senator is an immense responsibility. Some day, perhaps,

O’Donnell could be a credible candidate, but she needs to show she can shoulder the responsibilities of adult life before assuming the added responsibility of helping lead our nation. Getting a job would be a good start. Don Flood

Ministry expands, changes name

House of Hope Delaware (HOH-DE), located at 11391 Chipman Pond Rd., Laurel, is reorganizing to expand its ministry. We are excited to share some changes for our ministry that enhance our services to youth, families and individuals previously limited by age constraints. Our organization will now be called A Father’s Heart. Under this name, we will continue to fight and stand in the gap for youth, families and individuals providing education, counseling and community programming across Delaware and the Eastern Shore. Second, as part of the reorganization, AFH is announcing its affiliation with the international ministry of Malachi Global Foundation, headquartered in Midland, Mich. Malachi Global Foundation is a 501(c)3, not for profit organization, that  exists to see the manifestation of Malachi 4:6 throughout the world. This means that fathers will turn their hearts and attention to the next generation, resulting in healthier families, greater clarity of purpose for sons and daughters, and the fulfillment of their God-given destinies. As a result, young people will respond to their fathers, mothers and other mentors in ways that are healthy and satisfying. A Father’s Heart ministry will not be officially connected to the House of Hope Delaware organization. HOH-DE will concentrate their efforts on beginning residential programming in the Dover area. Under new leadership, HOH-DE will continue to operate under the direction of the National House of Hope (NHOH) headquartered in Orlando, Fla. If you are a community organization, church or ministry and would be interested in partnering with A Father’s Heart by hosting one of our Starting Again Community Parenting classes or MITI Foundations for Success Life Skills courses, call  Pastor Rob Brown at the ministry office or  email him at rob@afathersheart.org. Maybe you or someone you know feel stuck in the trap of self-preservation and self-protection and would like to learn more about how you can begin to really live or you would just like to learn more about A Father’s Heart. If so, call Pastor Rob Brown at 715-5270.   Rob Brown

Final Word Government - is it the solution?

HR 1 - The American Recovery & Investment Act of 2009, was introduced to Congress on Jan. 26, 2009 by David Obey (D-Wisconsin) and was otherwise billed as a $550 billion “emergency stimulus” plan that our President promised would have “no pork in it.” On Feb. 13, 2010, he reinstated a financial rule, used by congressional budget writers for more than 20 years called, “paygo.” Paygo rules state that a bill must either be budget neutral or offset by tax increases or spending cuts in other areas. This part made headlines. What didn’t appear in the news anywhere is the fact that on the very same day he raised the national debt ceiling from 12.4 trillion to 14.3 trillion. From the start, the stimulus math was flawed. A quick perusal of the dollars does not add up to $550 billion, in fact, some estimates put the “package” spending presently accounted for as high as $862 billion. Here’s where the money was supposed to go - $58 billion to energy, $275 billion in tax cuts, $141.6 billion to education, $90 billion to infrastructure, $102 billion in aid to the poor and unemployed and $111 billion for health care. In addition to this, our government has incentivized citizens and businesses alike to buy houses, buy cars, purchase appliances, weatherize homes, expanded the availability of food stamps (all the way to college students with no requirement for eligibility), authorized money to states to encourage the hiring or “saving” of public employees (with no long term thought as to how we will continue to pay for them) and “gifted” billions to what once were our local schools, deeply entrenching them in federal funding. The resulting culture created by this wave of stimulus, incentive and entitlement spending must and necessarily will stop, because the American public can no longer afford it.

Concord reunion correction

The date in the Stars last week for the Sons, Daughters & Friends of Concord’s 89th reunion was wrong.

The measure of debt, whether you are an individual, a couple, a family, a business or a nation is the same. Simply put, it is what you are capable of producing (income or GDP) minus what you owe. The printing of additional currency merely encourages inflation and simply means that we are that much deeper in debt. It is no different than when we purchase items “on credit.” Without a pay increase, an earnings bonus, an inheritance or a “hit” at the lottery, the result is always the same we owe more money. The current debt of our nation stands at 93% of GDP. If our nation were a business, no bank in its right mind would approve additional lending on a debt to income ratio like that. Some months back, our President attended an “economic round table” where he encouraged other nations to expand, adopt or create emergency stimulus measures to combat the “globac recession.” Germany, Japan and France, all of whom have navigated long and well documented fiscal hazards, issued very public sentiments renouncing such schemes. And still, he persists. He has spoken of a “tax holiday” for businesses (estimates put this cost at about $300 billion), additional money for infrastructure and creating an infrastructure “bank” (to police the spending - about $200 billion) or research and development credits for businesses (about $50 billion). Where will it all end?
