American Legion fundraiser to benefit Laurel couple By Lynn R. Parks When Jack Chambers of Laurel was diagnosed in late spring with cancer, his wife, Linda, had to quit her job at Johnny Janosik’s Furniture to help take care of him. That left the couple without any income other than Jack’s Social Security payments. “They are going through a lot,” said their daughter, Tracey Foskey. “They are struggling to pay their bills.” Those bills include bills for Jack’s medical services. The Chambers’ only health insurance is Jack’s Medicare, which does not cover all of Jack’s expenses.
Ann Foskey, whose husband, Greg, is Linda’s brother, wanted to do something to help. A member of the American Legion Post #19 Auxiliary in Laurel, where Linda is chaplain, she is organizing a dinner and auction to raise money to help the couple. “Linda and Jack are the biggesthearted couple I’ve ever met in my life,” Foskey said. “They will bend over backwards to help anybody who needs it. They are generous to a fault.” The benefit is set for Sunday, 2 to 6 p.m., at the post. An auction will feature items donated by area businesses and a buffet dinner including chicken and dumplings and stuffed shells will
be served. There will also be a disc jockey providing music. Linda will be there, Ann Foskey said. Jack, who is at home under the care of Hospice, will not be able to be there. “We really want to try to help out a wonderful couple from the community,” Foskey said. “We haven’t set any goal, but anything that we raise will be better than what they have now.” Tickets for the benefit are $18, $35 for couples. They are available in advance at the Legion Post and through Foskey, 875-0714 or 236-8558. They will also be available at the door.

NEW “CHECK OFF” ON TAX FORMS - Gov. Jack Markell recently signed legislation creating a new “check-off” on the state personal income tax form to raise money for the newly formed non-profit group, Delaware Ovarian Cancer Foundation Fund. The fund will finance ovarian cancer research with an emphasis on early detection, education and awareness. The organization was created by Dorianne Short, an ovarian cancer survivor. Short said because there is no reliable diagnostic screening for ovarian cancer, it often goes undetected or is misdiagnosed until it has reached the advanced stages. “There are some studies underway to develop better testing and our group hopes to aid in this promising research,” said Short. In addition to signing HB 228 into law, Gov. Markell also inked a proclamation designating September as “Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month” in the First State.

Evolution Craft Brewing Co. finds niche on Delmarva
By Lynn R. Parks Brewer Geoff DeBisschop isn’t quite sure how he’s going to do it. But soon, he’s going to make Belgian-style pumpkin ale. And he’s going to start out with 100 pounds of sugar pie pumpkins, grown in a Delmarva field. “I haven’t really thought out all the details,” said DeBisschop, who is brewer for the new Evolution Craft Brewing Co. in Delmar. He might make the ale extract, or wort, with raw pumpkins. Or he might roast the pumpkins first, to give the wort, and eventually the ale, a richer flavor. It doesn’t matter how DeBisschop, 39 and former brewer at John Harvard’s Brew House in Cambridge, Mass., ends up making the ale, said Tom Knorr, who owns the brewery with his brother, John. Whatever DeBisschop does, said Knorr, he will turn out a high-quality brew. “Geoff is a very technical brewer,” said Knorr. “He pays attention to all the details and doesn’t cut corners. He really is all about belief in the flavor of beers.” The brewery opened the end of March and started turning out beer in mid-April. DeBisschop expects that in its first 12 months, it will produce 50,000 gallons of brew. The small-batch brewery, located in the former Delmar Food Rite on alternate U.S. 13, is capable of making about 75,000 gallons a year, DeBisschop said. DeBisschop has designed several brews for Evolution, three of which, Primal Pale Ale, Exile ESB and Lucky 7 Porter, are available now, on draft only, in several restaurants throughout the peninsula. Coming soon, in addition to the pump-
kin ale, are an India Pale Ale and a coffee stout that will be finished with coffee from Rise Up Coffee in Salisbury. Also in the works is a bottling operation. The equipment is set to be installed in the brewery and DeBisschop anticipates that bottled Evolution beer will be available in area package stores in mid to late September. “Our sales are doing really well,” said Knorr. “Everyone really loves our product.” The brewery’s tasting room, based on tasting rooms that are often found in wineries, is proving to be a popular place, Knorr added. The small room, with a stack of large wooden kegs against one wall and shelves of Evolution T-shirts against another, has a small bar and features 4-ounce tastes of whatever’s on tap. That sometimes includes experimental brews that will never be offered anywhere else. Recently, Carl Urian, Salisbury, was standing at the bar, enjoying a small glass of ESB. “I like supporting a local brewery,” he said. For a couple of years, Urian has used commercial kits to brew beer in his home. “This is so much better than what I make,” he said, holding up his glass. “They make well-balanced products.” There are no seats in the tasting room; “we don’t intend it as a place where people will come and spend the day,” Knorr said. But beer aficionados can get growlers of beer to go. Knorr, 37, said that he has wanted to open a brewery since his college days, when he mixed up brews in his dorm room. After college, he worked for Phillips Seafood restaurants in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., and in 1996, he and John, who is still senior vice

president for Phillips Seafood, bought the Red Roost restaurant in Whitehaven, Md. They also own Boonies restaurant and bar in Tyaskin, Md., Sobo’s Wine Beerstro — “It used to be Sobo’s Wine Bistro, then we started selling our beer there,” Knorr said — in Salisbury and a French bistro, Bistrot Cing, in Antigua, Guatemala. Sometime this month, they will open Specific Gravity Pizza and Bottle Shop, a combination pizzeria and liquor store, on College Avenue
in Salisbury. As for the brewery, Knorr plans “nice, slow, organized growth,” focused on maintaining the quality of the beer. It won’t be until at least next spring that Evolution becomes available in states other than Delaware and Maryland, he said. And he doesn’t foresee ever moving out of Delmar. “The people here have supported us,” he said. “We definitely want to stay. We feel that we’ve brought a little culture to the area.”

After a two-year break, Laurel’s Community Awareness Day has once again been scheduled to be held in the town. According to Awareness Day founder and chief coordinator, Councilwoman Robin Fisher, the Community Awareness Day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3, beginning at 10 a.m., in Janosik Park, Front St., Laurel. Fisher said the event is slated to have vendors representing a large number of community service organizations, health and social service groups. The focus of the event is to bring as many organizations together as possible in an effort to help members of the public be educated about various service opportunities available to them and their family. In addition to the service groups represented there will be
food, drinks, and live entertainment and door prize giveaways during the day. A special committee has been working to help coordinate events for the event and currently registrations for table space are being accepted. Organizations interested in participating in Laurel’s Community Awareness Day can contact Laurel Operation’s Manager, Jamie Smith, at 302-875-2277. Fisher started Community Awareness Day in 2005, and a second event was held the following year. Due to a vehicle accident which left the Laurel Councilwoman seriously injured and undergoing long-term rehabilitation for injuries to her leg and foot, the event was put on hold. The Oct. 3 event is slated to run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Not scheduled, but nuisance ordinance issue makes council meeting By Tony E. Windsor
The controversial “nuisance” ordinance that has been introduced in Laurel over the past few weeks was not scheduled to be addressed during the most recent Mayor and Council meeting, but that did not stop it from coming up. The “nuisance” ordinance is Ordinance 2009-10, which has been developed as a means to address the problem of having police officers tied up at nuisance calls, such as loud noise and large crowds of people congregating. It seeks to assess a fee for any properties (private or rental) which have excessive class for police to respond to nuisance calls. At the end of the meeting three residents of the 400 block of East 6th Street addressed the Mayor and Council expressing their concern about the fact that the nuisance ordinance was not on the agenda for possible approval. Morley Daehn said he is respective of the fact that landlords have joined together to form an association that is willing to work with the town. However, he said he is concerned that not having the nuisance ordinance enacted leaves him and his neighbors at the mercy of those landlords who may not be as committed to taking care of their property. Calvin Musser, president of the newly formed Laurel Landlords’ Association was in attendance at the meeting and Daehm addressed questions to him. He asked Musser if all landlords were a part
of the new association. Musser responded that the group has only been together for a month and held only two meetings. He said not all landlords have been involved in the meetings and each time they get together he sees totally different people attending. Daehm also asked Musser whether there were bylaws or codes of conduct that the association members were expected to abide by. Again, Musser said the group has not had time to develop bylaws because it has been too busy trying to address the needs of the new nuisance ordinance. He said the Landlord Association has been meeting with the town and both the town and association feel there has been good discussion taking place. Daehm said he appreciates that there were landlords interested in helping the town address some of the nuisance issues in a fair way, but he wants the town to move forward and address the issues caused by landlords who are not taking care of their properties and negatively impacting the neighborhoods they are in. “If a landlord has chosen not to participate with the Landlord Association I think it is fair to assume they are not going to choose to voluntarily cooperate with the town,” he said. “I hope there is a mechanism put in place to assure that landlords abide by a code of conduct and properly upkeep their property.” Laurel Mayor Shwed told Daehm that he is committed to passing the nuisance ordinance. “This ordinance will be coming back,” he said.
East 6th Street resident, Fred Adams, said he is concerned that by forming a Landlords Association and holding meetings with the town, the landlords are showing force and could wind up being able to gain the ear of the Mayor and Council and manipulate how the town deals with nuisance issues involving rental properties. “These landlords never did anything and now all of a sudden they get together and from an Association,” he said. “This happens when the town is starting to take action against the landlords for how they are dealing with their properties. I am afraid they will develop force and be able to sway the town regarding the nuisance properties.” Adams said he feels the landlords in Laurel have helped to cause property values in the town to diminish. He said there are “eyesore” properties located across the street from him and a landlord who allows “bad tenants,” including a pedophile at one point, to live in his neighborhood. “These landlords have never had any interest in their properties, except for how much money they get from the tenants,” he said. “They do nothing but take away from the town. I have more money invested in my property than I could ever think of getting out of it. But, I care about how my property looks and will invest in making it a nice place to live. But, these landlords have no concerns about taking care of the properties,” he said. Shwed told Adams that he listens to anyone in the community who has con-
cerns, “whether it is one person or 500,” but his decision will be based on what he feels is best for the community. “Anybody has the right to organize and express their views,” he said. “I assure you that as long as I sit in this chair, whether it is one person or 500, my judgment will be based on what is best for the town. There are some very responsible landlords in that group (Laurel Landlords’ Association) and they have the right to express their views.” David Larmore said he has the same issues with the landlord that Adams has expressed concerns about. He said one recent Saturday night there were nine cars parked in front of his home from about 5 p.m. until after midnight. Even though there is off-street parking for the rental unit, the cars chose to park in front of his home and directly in front of a fire hydrant. He said the vehicle owners said they could not see the yellow “no parking” line that was on the curb. “I have to put up with this and if anyone wants to visit me they have to park over two blocks away,” he said. “I will be happy to paint the yellow back on the curb if the town will give me the paint,” he said. Shwed requested that the police make rounds in the East 6th Street area to make sure no one is parking in front of fire hydrants, or in restricted areas. He also asked Public Works to check to see if the yellow “no parking” line needs to be repainted on the curb in front of Larmore’s home.

SBA online training course
The U.S. Small Business Administration has launched a new free online training course to help strengthen access to contracting opportunities for small businesses, including those owned by women, minorities, disadvantaged individuals and veterans. The training course, “Recovery Act Opportunities: How to Win Federal Contracts,” is part of a federal government-wide initiative led by the SBA and the Department of Commerce. “Government contracts can play a key role in helping small businesses turn the corner in terms of expansion and job creation,” SBA Administrator Karen G. Mills said.
The comprehensive online course uses both audio and script to provide information about the federal marketplace, contract rules and, most importantly, how to sell to the government and where to find contract and Recovery Act opportunities. The course is available on SBA’s website at www.sba.gov.

MORNING STAR • SepTeMbeR 10 - 16, 2009
Officers pay tribute as Chad Spicer is laid to rest The gray clouds over Georgetown were symbolic as family, friends and thousands of fellow police officers gathered Tuesday, Sept. 8, to say a final farewell to Georgetown Police Officer Chad Spicer. Long lines of officers filed by the casket at Crossroads Community Church and provided a fitting escort after the service through Spicer’s hometown of Georgetown. Hundreds lined Georgetown’s streets and rimmed The Circle in quiet tribute as the two-mile procession passed by. As many as 100 police agencies from across the United States accompanied Patrolman Spicer’s casket along the streets on its way to Cokesbury Cemetery, west of Georgetown, for interment. Activities in Georgetown were cancelled Tuesday, including court proceedings, as the town set aside the time to honor Officer Spicer. On Friday evening a prayer vigil was held in Georgetown attended by Vice
President Joe Biden, who thanked Spicer’s parents for their son’s courage, character and ultimate sacrifice. Governor Jack Markell issued a statement, saying the state is grateful to fallen Georgetown Police Officer Chad Spicer and wounded Cpl. Shawn Brittingham for their courage and service. “The officers commitment to protect and serve their community was absolute. Their courage was clear,” said Markell. “Officer Spicer’s tragic death should remind us all that the men and women who serve our state in law enforcement put themselves at risk to protect our families each day. “ Suspects charged Delaware State Police Homicide Unit formally charged one of the suspects in the murder of officer Spicer. Derrick J. Powell, 22, of Cumberland, Md., was charged with murder 1st degree and other related charges. He could face

Officer Spicer was a native of Georgetown, having graduated from Sussex Central High School, and Delaware Technical and Community College.

A second passenger in the Chysler Sebring, Luis Flores, has not been charged. A preliminary investigation suggests he was not directly involved with the killing of Spicer. Georgetown Police had stopped the Chrysler Sebring. The three suspects darted from the car and a shot was fired, which killed officer Spicer. Fragments from the shot also injured officer Brittingham.

MORNING STAR • SEPTEMBER 10 - 16, 2009
Preserving memories and capturing personalities, that is Theis’ job By Tony E. Windsor The picturesque view from the backyard patio of Steve and Pat Theis’ Seaford home is a beautiful compilation of nature. It is a mix of aesthetics including the calm waters of William’s Pond, a plethora of vibrantly colored plants and flowers and on this day, a seemingly endless blue sky. It seems almost ironic that this view of nature would be so perfectly framed for view from the window of their home, or the outside brick walkway. It certainly seems the most appropriate setting for a man whose life has been dedicated to preserving scenes like this as the background for thousands of people who have sought and continue to seek, his creative talents behind the lens of a camera. Over the past 35 years, Theis Photography has become the standard bearer locally for quality photography. That is not a selfpromoting claim made by Steve Theis; it is just a simple fact. Though he has made a living for his family as a photographer, he also finds time to maintain a commitment to community. It is routine to spot Theis on the sidelines, catching the action of a high school basketball game, or in the social mix while shooting pictures for a local charity event. His civic involvement has enabled him to be a part of such successes as the Delmarva Christian High School project, in Georgetown, where he is a charter board member and one of the original founders. When talking to Steve Theis, the Christian family man and community-centered individual, it is no different than talking to your next door neighbor. He is very softspoken and likes to exchange light-hearted, amusing conversation. However, sit and talk to Theis about photography and his animated movements and hand gestures quickly indicate that you have struck a nerve of total passion. Photography to Steve Theis is not something he chose as a profession, quite the opposite, it chose him. At a young age he realized that he had a talent for taking quality pictures and it was not necessarily a planned endeavor. While attending high school in his hometown of Millsboro, Theis went to work part time with local photographer Nick Varrato, who had a studio in Millsboro and later opened a camera shop, Navar Studios, in Seaford. A couple of nights a week Theis would be found at Georgetown or Harrington racetracks covering the harness races. “In between races I would take photographs of the winning horse, jockey and owners in the ‘Winner’s Circle.’ I would then offer the photographs for sale to anyone who wanted copies,” he
said. Theis would hang around Varrato’s studio and was able to learn how to develop pictures. It was in the summer of 1971 that an opportunity availed itself to Theis and turned out to be a changing point in his life. Varrato’s purchased a color photo printer and paper processor for his Navar Studio. The printer and processing operation was highly mechanized and required two weeks of training in Minneapolis, Minn. Varrato sent Theis to the training. As part of the training, the photographers involved brought along their own film to be developed. Photographers from all over the country took the training and Theis was able to see photos that had been taken in places like California. These photographs immediately impressed him. “I was able to meet photographers from the west coast and when their photographs were developed in color I saw the most beautiful environments, like the Napa Valley Vineyards and people standing in the middle of wildflowers and along beaches. This was so much more exciting than the standard studio portraits that I was used to. This opened my eyes to doing environment portraits,” he said. Theis was hooked. He was now excited about how creative environment style photography is. “I realized that I had an eye for what would become a trend in professional photography,” he said. “This was so much more than simply taking a photograph of someone; it was bringing the person’s personality into the portrait. It was not just a photograph of what they looked like; it was a portrait of who they are. It reflected their lifestyle.” He became a member of the Professional Photographers Association of America and its Maryland chapter. This enabled the young photographer to meet a host of talented photographers from different areas of the country. In 1972, Theis traveled to New York where he lived and attended the Germaine School of Photography, located a few blocks from Wall Street. For nine months he learned the intricacies of photography and how to survive on the busy streets of the city. “I was living in New York when they were building one of the Twin Towers,” he said. “I was able to watch them go up and then unfortunately 30 years later, see them come down.” After graduating from the Germaine School, Theis returned to Millsboro and continued working Navar. By this time Varrato had built even more business and with his acquired talent for photography, Theis began photographing weddings and

doing portrait work for Varrato. In 1974, Theis left Varrato and Navar and opened his own “Theis Photography” in his Dagsboro home. Theis began doing weddings, family, children and high school senior portraits. Soon his business outgrew his small home in Dagsboro and he knew he had to seek a bigger place. “I have always had my studio in my home and that is the way I wanted it,” he said. “So, I had to seek a bigger home, but the question was where that would be.” As he began getting more and more wedding jobs, he realized at one point that out of five spring weddings, four of the
wedding receptions were held in Seaford. He was also approached by one of his biggest supporters, former Seaford councilman and at the time, manager of the Seaford Golf & Country Club (SGCC), Marshal Nesbitt, who requested Theis consider displaying some of his portraits to decorate the newly remodeled SGCC. Theis agreed and it provided an opportunity for Theis Photography to promote its services in a location that was used extensively for wedding receptions. In 1979, Theis and his wife Pat made the decision that Seaford was the most logical place to relocate their home and busi-

MORNING STAR • SEPTEMBER 10 - 16, 2009 ness. They settled on a home located on Greenbrier Lane, along William’s Pond. In the early 1980s Theis Photography began doing work with the Seaford School District, including photography for school proms. This led to Theis being contracted to do the annual Seaford High School senior portraits for the yearbook. Traditionally, national photography businesses would come into the school and do all the yearbook photos of students in ninth through 11th grade, leaving the more professional and higher quality studio portraits which were usually done in tuxedos and cap and gown drapes, for Theis Photography. Given his penchant for creative environment photography, Steve Theis came up with a unique idea on how to do the annual senior portraits. “I wanted to do something different,” he said. “Instead of waiting until September and going to the school to take all the senior portraits, I was able to get the student phone numbers and to start calling to schedule while they were out for summer break. I would try to get as many portraits done over the summer as possible and offer the parents something that had not been done in the past.” In addition to the traditional yearbook formal photographs, the students and their parents were also offered an opportunity to have senior portraits photographed in the outdoors as incorporating Theis’ familiar “environmental styles.” Quickly casual senior portraits such as those done while the student was posed on the beach, became a new trend. “I would have the majority of the senior class taken care of for their senior pictures over the summer,” Theis said. “When I went back in September I would have maybe 50 kids to photograph.” The popularity of the environmental style was such that it eventually caused Theis to be unable to keep up with the overwhelming response. “Eventually, these portraits would be seen by other parents and students from other school districts that like them and wanted their child to have an environmental portrait done. There just was not enough of me to go around, so I had to stop doing the annual yearbook pictures. But, I continue to do the senior environmental portraits to this day,” he said. Environmental shots for high school seniors are just one example of how Theis has worked “outside the box” to create excitement with photography and build his business. Though senior portraits helped launch his local photography career, Theis’ passion remains with children and family portraits, photography that he feels captures the heart and soul of people’s lives. In efforts to promote his work, Theis has used a proactive promotional campaign over the years involving the display of his photography work throughout the region. In his early years, he joined with several area photographers and together they began to work on traveling photography displays that covered several malls and other high traffic venues. It was not unusual to see Theis Photography portraits as you walked through the Salisbury Mall, the Christiana Mall, the Centre at Salisbury, the Dover Mall, and the Gold Coast Mall in Ocean City, just to name a few. Theis’ work was also featured for 15 years in the pavilion under the grand stand during the Delaware State Fair and annually at the Seaford Kiwanis Home and Garden Trade Show. These traveling displays were a remarkable promotional tool for his business, but eventually became something of a chore. “We loved doing these displays,” he said. “A group of us would go from venue to venue setting up and tearing down. It was great fellowship. But, after so many years,
you start spending so much time setting the displays up and then taking them down and moving to the next location. It is very time consuming.” When he started 35 years ago, Theis could count the number of local professional photographers on less than one hand. Today, the number has exploded. He feels the digital camera has caused a rise in the number of people who have turned to photography as a career. However, in some cases, he feels this is not necessarily a positive thing. “Digital cameras have made photography easier and more automatic, but that does not necessarily mean that it has improved the quality of photography,” he said. “The digital camera gives instant gratification. You can take a photograph, look down at a small screen and see the image instantly. However, what you see on that screen is not always what you see when you bring the picture up on your larger computer screen.” Theis fears that digital cameras have resulted in less photographers actually taking the time to train and learn their craft; leading to more of an emphasis placed on convenience than quality. “Digital cameras will automatically focus and shoot. But, the camera generally simply uses exposure setting that average the contrast,” he said. “In pictures, especially weddings, a white gown can easily be totally whited-out and all detail erased from the final picture. The key to photography is knowing the proper lighting and camera settings as it pertains to your environment. It is crucial to take photographs that flatter the subject. “I consider nothing more beautiful than a bride in her wedding gown. That is an extraordinarily important portrait for anyone who is getting married. It is important to be sure that the camera exposure settings and the lighting are just right to assure that the photographs depict the details of the gown and the features of the bride in a manner that are flattering to her.” It is Theis’ eye for detail and creative inspiration behind the lens of a camera that has earned him countless awards, including being the first photographer in Delaware to earn the Master-Craftsman Degree. He has been honored numerous times by the Professional Photographers Association of America and such photography icons as Kodak. His photographs have been chosen as “Best on Show” in national competitions against some of the greatest photographers in the country. Theis served as president of the Maryland Professional Photographer’s Association and was instrumental in forming the Delaware chapter of the Professional Photographers Association of America. Theis is referred to by many of his photographer colleagues as “The photographer’s photographer.” This earned because of many professional photographers who ask Theis to do their personal wedding photography. Steve Theis and his wife of 40 years, Pat, have three children, Ashley; Jennifer who lives in Charlotte, N.C. with husband Jonathon and their children Jake, 8; Jorden, 6 and Jude, 4. A son, Chris, and wife Nicole have two children, Noah, 9 and Reagan, 7 and live in Bethel. Theis doesn’t envision retirement and says he is “blessed” to have a job that he loves and is so passionately connected to. “I have devoted four decades of my life to the profession of photography and I cannot imagine a more rewarding pursuit,” he said. “The places I have traveled and the people I have met along the way have enriched my life beyond measure. I have no plans of retiring. If God chooses to bless me with a long life, I intend to continue capturing the beauty of His creation. To God be the glory.”

New Occupational Health center By Lynn R. Parks
The occupational health section of Nanticoke Health Services has a new home. A grand opening of the new center at 543 Shipley St. in Seaford was held last Wednesday. “It is nice to have dedicated space for occupational health,” Terri Drye, Nanticoke chief administrative officer, said. Occupational Health was previously located in the Mears Center on Bridgeville Highway, also home to Nanticoke rehabilitation, physical therapy and orthopedic services. “Here, we have our own waiting room and registration area, so there’s more privacy for our clients,” Drye said. Interim director Helen Spencer said that
the center sees about 15 clients a week. It works with 320 employers, providing workplace safety training, providing drug and alcohol screenings and helping to establish and administer programs that are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Dyre said that Nanticoke plans for the center to provide worker’s compensation management programs, to help employers handle regulations and claims. A physician’s assistant with a background in rehabilitation as well as general wellness will start work in mid-September. The center provides physical exams for truck and school bus drivers, sports physicals and health screenings. For more information, call 629-6875.

Offer to purchase may be on the table for the Seaford Golf and Country Club Senior Center could be located in the clubhouse building By Lynn R. Parks
Members of the struggling Seaford Golf and Country Club will vote this month on a plan to sell the club property, including the clubhouse and the 18-hole golf course. The buyer would be the city of Seaford. City manager Dolores Slatcher said that that club membership vote would be just the first step in the process. The second step would be a vote by the members of the Nanticoke Senior Center on whether they want the clubhouse for a senior center. The senior center is currently leasing space from the Western Sussex Boys and Girls Club and that lease runs out in March. If the club membership OKs the sale and the senior center membership approves using the clubhouse for a center, the city council would then consider whether to
pursue the purchase. “No offer has been made yet,” Slatcher said. “A lot of dominoes all have to fall into place and many questions have to be answered.” Those questions include the purchase price, Slatcher said. “We have no idea of the property’s value,” she said. The questions also include how the club property would be used. It is possible that the city would operate the course as a public golf course, Slatcher said. If the city decides to pursue the purchase, it would commission a board to do a feasibility study on best uses for the club’s property, including the golf course, tennis courts and Olympic-sized swimming pool, Slatcher said. In April, the city voted to close its public swimming pool due to lack of funds. Public hearings open to members of the community would also be part of the process, Slatcher said. “The city can’t do anything without making it public,” she said. Charles Butler, president of the country club board, said that declining membership is forcing the club to consider the sale. If the sale goes through, the Seaford Golf and Country Club, a Delaware corpora-
tion, would be dissolved. All memberships would be terminated. Current membership is 250; Butler said that the club needs between 350 and 400 members to be healthy. “Our economic situation dictates that we have to do something,” Butler said. “We’ve lost a lot of people in the last one and a half years.” In May 2008, when the country club embarked on a $500,000 renovation, it had about 420 members. Butler blames the declining membership on the overall economy. “All country clubs are in difficult times,” he said. “We are not alone. People feel that they can no longer justify their memberships.” He added that the sale to the city is just one alternative for the country club. “We are not ruling anything out, including not selling at all,” he added. On the other hand, “we are not in negotiations with anyone else.” Butler said that the country club currently has a debt of $1.8 million. Proceeds from the sale would go to pay that debt and any additional debt incurred between now and the sale, and then would go to pay back capital construction certificates that members bought. How much mem-
bers are reimbursed would depend on the amount of the sale price, he said. Slatcher said that the talks were prompted by the economic struggles of the country club and by the senior center’s struggles to raise money for a new center. The senior center has raised about $600,000 toward the estimated $2.37 million cost of building a new center in the city’s Ross Business Park. Last month, Christy Pennington, who is leading the center’s fundraising effort, estimated that construction could start in November and take 12 to 15 months. “The senior center members have to decide if they want to build new, or if they want to move in sooner into an alreadyconstructed building,” Slatcher said. If the country club and senior center memberships vote to approve the plan, “then the city council and the public will have to decide whether the club is worth saving, as part of Seaford’s history and as open space,” Slatcher said. Both Butler and Slatcher said that the whole process could take months. If everything falls into place, Slatcher added, it is the city’s goal to have the clubhouse opened as a senior center by March, when the center’s current lease expires.

Assistance program puts owners in foreclosed homes With the recent settlement of a twostory house in Milford, Sussex County’s new Neighborhood Stabilization Program is the first in Delaware to put the keys to a formerly foreclosed home into the hands of new owners. Tia and Donta Moultrie, a nurse and a bus driver, respectively, settled on the property Monday, Aug. 31, using a $30,000 zero-interest loan made possible through the program. That money will pay for closing costs and principal reduction to buy the house located in a single-family subdivision off Elks Lodge Road. “We’re excited to see this program move from an idea on paper to something that’s in practice, actually helping a real family realize their dream of home ownership,” said Brandy A. Bennett, Sussex County’s housing coordinator. “This is the first of hopefully more than two dozen families we can help through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program over the next year.” This past spring, the Delaware State
Housing Authority allocated to Sussex County $2 million in federal funding for the County’s model of the stabilization program, created under the federal Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. The program’s mission is to stabilize communities that have suffered from a high concentration of foreclosures and abandonment by offering low- and moderate-income buyers the chance to purchase homes left vacant. The funding must be used by September 2010. Under Sussex County’s local program, the County’s Community Development & Housing office is using a portion of the federal funding to establish a homebuyer assistance program that makes up to $50,000 in zero-interest loans available to low- and moderate-income buyers purchasing foreclosed homes. The assistance is secondary to the buyer’s principal financing, and is considered a lien on the property, requiring the owner to repay the amount if the home is sold to a future non-qualified buyer.
Buyers must meet eligibility and income requirements, not making more than 120 percent of area median income in order to qualify. For a typical family of four, that would equal approximately $70,000 per year. Homes purchased must be for primary residences, not used as investment properties or second homes, and must be located within five targeted areas of the county where foreclosure rates have been the highest in the past 18 months: Georgetown, Greenwood, Laurel, Milford and Seaford zip codes. Sussex County is partnering with NCALL Research Inc. and First State Community Action Agency to provide federally required counseling for homebuyers making use of the program. County Administrator David B. Baker said the program will not solve the foreclosure ills that have plagued the economy for the past year. For more information, contact Sussex County Community Development & Housing at 302-855-7777, or visit www.NSPDelaware.org.
The Internal Revenue Service will hold three one-day workshops in King of Prussia, Pa. on Oct. 6, 7, and 8 to help small and mid-sized tax-exempt organizations comply with their tax obligations and maintain their tax-exempt status. The workshops are designed for board members, officers, volunteers and staff of these organizations and for the tax preparers and stakeholders who work with them.
IRS revenue agents will lead the workshops which will cover the “nuts and bolts” of tax compliance for exempt organizations. Workshop topics include an in-depth discussion of activities that can jeopardize 501(c)(3) status, unrelated business income, gaming and employment issues. Particular emphasis will be given to explaining the revised Form 990 and 990EZ annual information returns that tax-
exempt organizations submit to the IRS. The workshops will be held at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King of Prussia. The workshop cost is $45 per person and includes a handbook and relevant IRS forms and publications. Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, go to the Charities and Non-Profits page at the IRS website, www.irs.gov/eo and click the “Calendar of Events” link.

Man pleads guilty to charges of running a gambling operation
A Middletown resident has pleaded guilty to gambling and tax charges, arising out of an illegal gambling operation run out of his Middletown residence. William S. Anderson, 39, pled guilty to one gambling charge and one charge of attempt to evade or defeat income tax. NCC Superior Court Judge Richard R. Cooch placed Anderson on probation for one year. In addition, Anderson was ordered to file his delinquent state income tax returns and pay all taxes due to the Delaware Division of Revenue. Anderson was arrested in February 2008 after police conducted surveillance on the residence after receiving numerous complaints of parking violations. After learning of illegal poker games being held at the residence, a search warrant was executed which turned up gaming tables, a cashless ATM machine and other gambling paraphernalia. Anderson was indicted in March in a 38-count indictment with multiple gambling offenses and felony tax charges. An investigation conducted by the Middletown Police Department, the Delaware State Police High Tech Crime Unit and the Delaware Division of Revenue’s Criminal Investigation Unit established that Anderson operated a profitable gambling operation - principally illegal poker games - out of his home and failed to pay state income taxes on profits earned. Law enforcement authorities closed the operation down last year.

Winter Company as an office administrator, for Saint Mark Lutheran Church in Pleasant Gap as the organist, and in Bloomsburg Elementary’s cafeteria.

She was an active member of Grace Lutheran Church in Red Lion, Saint Mark Lutheran Church in Pleasant Gap and Saint Matthew Lutheran Church in Bloomsburg. She shared her gifts as a Sunday school teacher, an organist, children’s choir accompanist and LCW Circle member. Ruth and her family and friends have many fond memories of involvement in church ministries, in sharing her deep love of music and helping others in her church and her community. Ruth also loved the outdoors and enjoyed camping and gardening. Ruth volunteered her time with many causes including Meals on Wheels, Danville State Hospital, Bloomsburg State College Faculty Wives, and served on the board of directors of the Mental Health Association of Columbia and Montour Counties. Ruth is survived by her two daughters: Trudy E. Klinedinst of Bloomsburg; Susan I. and husband William Dreisbach of Medford, N.J., and their sons Charles and wife Janet of Syracuse, N.Y., and Joseph of Medford; her two sons: Thomas E. Klinedinst and his wife JoAnn of Doylestown, Pa., and their children Andrew and Amy; James R. Klinedinst and his wife Michelle of Dagsboro, and their children Darcy and Shelby. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, Oscar Seden and Elizabeth Mary Grove and her sisters, Elizabeth and Irene Grove of Red Lion. She is survived by her brother Roy and sister-in-law Colleen Grove of York, Pa., and many nieces, nephews and their extended families. The funeral was held Saturday, Sept. 5 at Saint Matthew Lutheran Church, Bloomsburg, with her pastor, the Rev. Joel L. Zeiders officiating. Interment was in Old Rosemont Cemetery, Bloomsburg. Memorials may be sent to Saint Matthew Lutheran Church to be used to support their music ministry program or the Mental Health Association of Susquehanna Valley.

MORNING STAR • SepTeMBeR 10 - 16, 2009
Woodland Ferry Festival this Saturday 16th annual Festival celebrates with new ferry, the Tina Fallon The 16th annual Woodland Ferry Festival, celebrating the Nanticoke River
and the historic ferry, is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12. An “all you can eat” country breakfast, served by the Galestown Ruritan Club, will start off the day at 7 a.m. and will be serving until 10 a.m. This special breakfast includes scrambled eggs, pancakes, home fries, sausage gravy, scrapple, the Ruritan’s famous sticky buns, biscuits, orange juice and coffee, all for $7. Opening ceremonies begin at 9 a.m. with the combined Seaford and Laurel High School Bands, and raising of the flags by the Marine Corp League. There will be demonstrations and displays throughout the village, including chair caning, artwork, an animal rescue group, Orrell’s Famous Maryland Beaten Biscuits from Wye Mills and much more. Entertainment will begin with dulcimer player John Kisela, followed by gospel
singer Jerry Jones performing from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and ending with Tony Windsor singing his country/western and pop hits. Jack & Carolyn Knowles will have their “Days Gone By” museum open showcasing memorabilia from Woodland and Seaford. The new ferry, (the “Tina Fallon”), will be closed to vehicle traffic, but will provide free rides across the river to pedestrians during the day. Call Donna Angell at 629-8077 for additional information. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org. Background on the ferry crossing Just west of Seaford along the Nanticoke River is the village of Woodland, known for its ferry crossing. Since 1882 a ferry has traveled back and forth across the banks of the river. Now there are bridges between Seaford and Blades and at Sharptown, Md. But, at one time, “Cannon’s Ferry” provided the only crossing.
The sign in the Kiwanis Park in Seaford announces the annual Woodland Ferry Festival this Saturday in the riverside community.
The ferry was originally owned and operated by the Isaac Cannon family. Over the past 200 plus years there have been many different ferries at this location. For the 200th anniversary of ferry service a celebration was planned, called the
Woodland Ferry Festival. This celebration has continued each year since, and is held the second Saturday in September. Townspeople showcase their riverside hamlet and provide entertainment and food.
Enjoy The Woodland Ferry Festival

Sussex Tech offers fresh foods Students at Sussex Technical High School now have another option for a healthy lunch at school. In the school’s new salad bar, students are filling their plates with lettuce and piling on the cucumbers, radishes, chick peas, tomatoes, beets, cauliflower, broccoli, and several other vegetable choices that help maintain a healthy diet. Then for dessert, there is fresh, localgrown watermelon or Columbo soft, frozen yogurt. Sussex Tech’s effort to promote a healthy school environment supports the Nemours 5-2-1 Almost None healthy eating campaign. In Delaware,
about 85 percent of students reported that they did not eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. The healthy food choices at Sussex Tech also help the local economy. Nemours has connected the school with local farmers who have provided fresh fruits and vegetables when possible. “We have been able to serve fresh corn on the cob that was picked and delivered in the morning, then husked, cooked and eaten for lunch at noon,” said Gary Woody, Sussex Tech’s cafeteria manager. The salad bar is offered for the same price as the other school entrée lunches.

Entertainment Southern Delaware Choral Society presents Master Class for vocalists What does it take to stand on a stage and perform a vocal piece designed to thrill an audience? Nine local vocalists got a chance to learn exactly that in a full-day format Master Class presented by the Southern Delaware Choral Society and funded, in part, by a contribution from the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation. The day time portion of the class was held at St. Martha’s Episcopal Church in Bethany Beach. Instructors were opera stars Meghan McCall and Jessica Renfro who most recently performed as soloists with the Southern Delaware Choral Society recently. Vocalists started with a piece of music that they were familiar with but felt that they could use a little help with and they learned how to take it to performance level. Most of the class participants were accustomed with singing with a church choir or a chorus - few had ever performed solo. Participants had the same opportunity to perform, be critiqued and then apply the
information that they learned to the music that they had come prepared to sing. Students participating in the class were: Kristen Jones, Mary Ann Abella, Beverly LaFazia, Rebecca McDaniel, Phyllis Thomas, Ginny VanTine, Marsha Schull, Kathleen Shelly and Betty Garrett. Following lunch, many of the students opted to take a private lesson with coaches McCall and Renfro. In the evening, five of the students, Kristin, Ginny, Kathleen, Marsha and Beverly, performed as soloists in front of the audience gathered at the Freeman Stage at Bayside in Selbyville. The audience was also treated to a duet by McCall and Renfro. The Southern Delaware Choral Society is about to begin rehearsals for their Christmas Concert, “My Soul Now Magnifies the Lord.” Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in Tunnel Hall at Georgetown Presbyterian Church. Individuals do not need to audition to participate in the group. For more information, visit www.sdchoralsociety.org or call 302-226-5231. REAL ESTATE RENTALS

Howard takes over as Laurel varsity boys’ soccer coach
Laurel football team looks to reload following loss of several players By Mike McClure
Laurel varsity head football coach Clarence Giles, an assistant coach for the Bulldogs for the past 12 years, feels good about his transition to head coach following the departure of Ed Manlove to Woodbridge. “The players seem to be picking up the system well. Our main goal is to improve,” said Giles. “We’re back here putting in the work to field a good team.” Last year the Bulldogs went 5-1 in the conference and 9-3 overall. Strong play down the stretch and in the playoffs helped Laurel advance to the championship game where it lost to Milford, which is now in the Henlopen North. While Laurel lost many players to graduation Nick Munoz from last year’s squad, it does return a number of key players with varsity experience. They include: seniors Nick Munoz (RB/LB), Chris Cutsail (QB/DB), Luke Hare (TE/ DE), Zachary Exume (WR/DB), and
Zachary Lynch (OL/DL); junior Justin Rife (OL/ LB); and sophomore Chris Jones (RB/LB). The Bulldogs lost its entire offensive and defensive lines to graduation and with the tragic death of Zachary Lynch William Nazelrod. Lynch saw time on the offensive line in the state championship game and Rife, a starting linebacker, also played on the line due to injuries. Jones tallied over 1,000 yards rushing as a freshman while Munoz (LB), Rife, and Cutsail (S) started defensively. Cutsail also enters the season as the team’s starting quarterback. The Bulldogs’ newcomers include: juniors Joe McGinnis (DB/QB), Dexter Taylor (RB/DB), and Cody Dalton (OL/ LB); sophomores Arnold Mann (WR/DB) and Tyler Roberson (RB/DB); and freshman David Cornish (OL/DL). McGinnis, a transfer from Sussex Tech, has done well since joining the

Delmar boys’ soccer looks to gain experience during season By Mike McClure
The Delmar varsity boys’ soccer team returns just five players, including two seniors, with varsity experience. While this year’s team will be young, head coach Tim Phillips says it will still be shooting for a berth in the state tournament. The Wildcats’ returning players are: seniors Corey Phillips (midfield) and Casey Bellamy (midfield); juniors Thomas Gray (defender) and Brady Scott Corey Phillips (midfield); and sophomore Roel Dominguez (forward). Phillips said his senior returning players have the bulk of the team’s experience. A number of newcomers will be asked to fill the voids of the team’s ‘08 seniors. They include: seniors Shawn Deen (de-
fender) and James Schnepel (defender); juniors Dominique Showell (forward), Jimmy Whaley (defender), and Logan Baxter (defender); freshman Levi Gilmore (midfield); and eighth graders Gene Cropper (goalie) and Robert Budd Casey Bellamy (forward/midfield). Deen and Schnepel haven’t played organized soccer since they were freshman while Showell, a former football player, last played soccer in sixth grade. Whaley transferred from Sussex Tech while Cropper will gain varsity experience in goal for the Wildcats. Phillips expects his team to face a tough road, especially in the conference, but he is hoping for a playoff run as his players gain experience throughout the season. Delmar opens the season at home against Cape Henlopen.

Delmar varsity girls’ volleyball team shoots for the Henlopen South title By Mike McClure
Even though the Delmar varsity volleyball lost its ‘08 starters to graduation, this year’s squad has a Henlopen South championship in its sights. While the team’s seniors don’t have as much experience as last year’s seniors did, the Wildcat team is working together to reach its goal. The team is led by head coach Karen Lewis, in her second year, and assistant coach J.R. LaPearl. “He brings a lot to the program. He’s really brought the girls along,” said Lewis. Lewis has spent more time working on the fundamentals with her young squad this season. She is also looking for her players to come together to form Sarah Smith a cohesive team.
Back from last year’s team are seniors Abby Tingle, Shanna Hearn, Sarah Smith, and Kayla Haney. Seniors Nikkia King and Jazmine Brown are also up from the JV team. Abby Tingle The Wildcats’ newcomers include: Ashley Matos, Olivia Smith, Alexis Smith, Jackie Disharoon, Shalynn Chandler, and Gaby Rairan. This year the Henlopen South has enough teams to form a division and provide a championship banner to the top team. “The girls want an orange banner (Henlopen South championship),” Lewis said. “We want to think positively, but we’re going to take one game at a time.

Sussex Tech girls’ volleyball team looks to make its mark in first year By Mike McClure

Sussex Tech soccer team looking for improvement throughout the season By Mike McClure
The Sussex Tech varsity boys’ soccer team, which went 12-2 in the conference and 13-3-2 overall last season, lost a number of players to graduation from last year’s squad. But the Ravens also have some key players returning as well as some newcomers who are looking to step up and fill the holes left by the graduates. Sussex Tech head coach Carlos Villa is pleased with the number of players he had out for the team. “it’s good to see a lot of Aris Reynoso eager players. Everybody’s competing for an open spot,” said Villa. Among the returning players are seniors Dylan Pepper (midfield), Christian Espinoza (forward), and Ariel Espinoza (midfield) and juniors Ryan Moore (midfield), Aris Reynoso (midfield), and James Smith (goalie). Villa is looking for seniors Christian and Ariel Espinoza and juniors Reynoso and Smith to provide leadership this season. Smith will need to step up and help
the Ravens’ defense, which lost its back line to graduation including all-conference player Nate Zanks. Reynoso will also be looked to for leadership at midfield. James Smith The team’s newcomers include junior Michael Rhone (midfield) and sophomore Dustyn Beebe (forward). Beebe, a transfer from Maryland, helps provide scoring up front while Rhone, who is up from the JV team, will provide assists. Rounding out the team are: Tim Flynn, Sam Spellman, Zimri Gomez, Emir Laroya, Aaron Betts, Brock Little, Dan Ash, Sean Murray, Zach Williamson, Colby Hastings, and Josh Walstead. Villa expects Seaford, which has a lot of seniors and is “a well coached team” to be strong in the conference along with Indian River and Caesar Rodney. The Ravens’ coach is looking forward to seeing his players develop during the season. “It’s always exciting helping these guys become men,” Villa said. “You’re looking at what each player can learn each day to get better.”
The Sussex Tech girls’ volleyball team is in its first year as a varsity program, but its players already have a good deal of playing experience, as does its coach, Jon Hearn. Hearn is new to coaching varsity volleyball, but he has been playing the game for the past 23 years and has served as a player/coach. Assistant coach Kim Speicher played volleyball at Seaford, coach Darlene Condon has been involved with the Delaware Juniors program, and coach Beth Light, the school’s nurse, has a daughter who played the sport in high school and college. “We’re just trying to be as positive as possible,” said Hearn, who has around 25 JV and varsity players. “They Erica Edwards play very well. They have good skills/ They’re just trying to learn each other and build confidence.” The Ravens players include seniors Erica Edwards and Christina Massino, who have played club ball in the Delaware Juniors program; junior Ellie McNatt, sophomore Morgan Messick, and freshman Crystal Loudan, who played at
Seaford Christian; freshman Bethany Killmon, who played at Greenwood Mennonite; and sophomore Samantha Hudson, who played for Epworth Christian. Also on the team are seniors Carlina Church and Katina StaMorgan Messick mat; junior Cierra Rayne, who also played club ball; sophomore Claire Redman; and freshman Bree Troyer. According to Hearn, the team held its own in a scrimmage and play day in the pre-season. Other than the area’s Christian schools, there aren’t any youth programs in the area to help develop volleyball players. “There’s no feeder program down here except the Christian schools (seventh and eighth grade),” Hearn said. “The key is being positive and getting the program off the ground. I hope that we’re going Cierra Rayne to be competitive with the Southern Delaware schools.”
RAM racers provide some great heads up racing at U.S. 13 By Charlie Brown
A strong field of racers competed in the RAM Racing Series Sunday at the U.S. 13 Dragway on Saturday, Aug. 29. The RAM Racers competed in four different classes and run naturally aspirated engines in predominately heads-up racing. In the All Motor Index class it was Bob Creel in his ’73 Camaro going up against the ’60 Ford of Dan Walleigh of Reading, Pa. Walleigh had the better reaction time but ran under his 10:50 index with a 10.464 elapsed time. The win went to Creel who ran a 9.511/140.25 on a 9.50 index. Ron Rhodes of Townsend, Del., in his ’68 Camaro faced Bill Perkins of York Springs, Pa., in his ’89 Mustang in the Naturally Aspirated Drag Radial final. In the heads-up run Rhodes took the win with a .020 reaction and a run of 9.088/147.54. Perkins had a .037 reaction and ran a 10.543 at 106.01 miles per hour. In the Naturally Aspirated 10.5 division it was Leonard Long of Cleona, Pa., in his ’90 Mustang going up against Henry Jackson of New Egypt, N.J., in his ’67 Chevelle. Jackson was off the line first but got out of the throttle and Long took the win with an 8.674/158.39. The Pro Naturally Aspirated division was the quickest of the day. Randy Harshman of Myersville, Md., drove into the final in his ’63 Corvette against the ’04 Mustang of Merv Moyer, Jr. of Annville, Pa. Harshman took the win with a .047 reaction time and a blazing 7.460/185.49. Moyer also laid down a good run with a 7.506 e.t. and a speed of 183.63 miles per hour.

H.J. Bunting takes seventh win, point lead in Delaware Modifieds By Charlie Brown
Jamie Mills’ misfortune turned out to be a huge benefit for H.J. Bunting in Saturday night’s 25-lap NAPA Big Block Modified Feature. Mills, who has held the point lead for the majority of the season, took the lead from Bunting on lap 10 but pulled from the race one lap later with mechanical failure. Bunting inherited the top spot once again and drove to his seventh win of the season and the point lead in the division. Robert Dutton was quick from his pole starting position but the yellow was out before the first lap was complete when Jeff Brown came to a stop. Dutton controlled the restart with Bobby Watkins running in second and Scott Van Gorder in third. Bunting sliced through the field like a knife through butter from his eighth starting spot and was running third by lap two. Bunting took second on lap four and one lap later Dutton’s lead was erased when Dana Walker came to a stop. Dutton led the field back to the green but Bunting beat him off the second turn to lead lap seven. Mills, who had started in the 10th spot followed into the second spot and immediately went to work on Bunting, taking the lead on lap ten. Coming off the fourth turn for lap 11 Mills’ car made a loud pop and he coasted into the first turn bringing out the yellow and putting Bunting back on top. At the halfway sign the top five were Bunting, Watkins, Howard O’Neal, Matt Jester and Jordan Watson. While Watkins and O’Neal battled for second, Bunting built a 7 1/2 second lead. That was erased on lap 19 when Craig Ott came to a stop. O’Neal was now in second but it was Joseph Watson making a charge. Watson climbed to second on lap 21 but Watkins regained the spot one lap later. Bunting would make no mistakes as he powered to his seventh win in the Jake Marine/J&M Roofing/Teo. “I was stuck on the bottom and wasn’t sure what to do,” said Bunting. “Jamie went by me so I had to move up top and follow him. He had bad luck and it ended up working out for us.” Watkins turned in a season best performance finishing in second with Joseph Watson third. Fourth went to Jordan Watson and Tim Trimble rounded out the
top five. Heats were won by Bunting and Mills. Michael White back in victory lane in AC Delco Modifieds- Michael White helped complete a good night for car owner Jake Marine in capturing his eight win of the season. With the victory, White most likely guaranteed his defense of the AC Delco Modified title. John Curtis took advantage of a slip by pole sitter, Steve Baker to lead the first lap of the 15-lap main. Kyle Fuller followed into the second spot with White charging from eighth to take third on lap two. White got by Fuller for second on lap four and quickly reeled in Curtis, taking the lead on lap seven. The second and final yellow of the race was out at the halfway sign when Baker slowed to a stop. Curtis would chase White the remainder of the distance but to no avail as White posted his eight win in the Jake Marine/J&M Roofing/Teo. Curtis finished a solid second with rookie Shawn Ward coming on strong in the final three laps to take third. Fourth went to Jason Bishop for a personal best in the division and Jon Callaway came from seventh to finish in fifth. Fast time in qualifying was set by White. Steve White back in stride in Mod Lites- Steve White put on a good wheel to wheel battle with Tim White for second and then drove by teammate Ty Short to record his ninth win in the 15-lap Mod Lite feature. Short started on the pole with James Hill powering form fifth to second on lap one. Tim White was on the move taking second from Hill on lap three with Steve White following into third. The pair swapped positions twice before Steve White took second just as the one and only caution of the race flew for a tangle between Chad Passwaters and Kirk Miles on lap five. On the restart Steve White took the lead as Short held off Tim White for second. White got by Short with five to go but was unable to run down Steve White who moved into second in the point standing with his win in the Northeast Modified Lites/Lightning. Tim White finished in the second spot with Short ending a good drive in third Fourth went to point lead Brandon Dennis and Tyler Reed rounded out the top five. Steve White set quick time in qualifying.
Pettyjohn back in victory lane in Delaware Late Models By Charlie Brown
Former 10-time Late Model champion Kenny Pettyjohn returned to action on Saturday night in his familiar No. 38 Special and went on to become the 10th different winner in the division this season. Rookie Barry Beauchamp led the field for the first lap with Kelly Putz running in second. Pettyjohn, who had started in fourth, grabbed the second spot on lap two with Rick Whaley following into third. Pettyjohn began to challenge Beauchamp on lap five and one lap later moved on top with Whaley following into second. The first yellow of the race flew on lap nine when Donald Lingo, Jr., driving his cousin Dale Lingo’s car after experiencing mechanical problems with his own car in the heat, slowed to a stop. Kerry King was now in the third spot and battle Whaley for second on the restart. At the halfway sign the top five were Pettyjohn, Whaley, King, Richard Jarvis, Jr. and Ross Robinson. Ray Davis, Jr. slowed with a flat to bring out the yellow on lap 12. The yellow was out for a third time one lap later when both Mark Pettyjohn and Eddie Pettyjohn came to a stop. Jarvis took advantage of the restarts to get by Whaley for second. The final yellow was out with five to go when Robinson got around in the second turn. Kenny controlled the restart but Jarvis got along side with two to go. Pettyjohn held off the challenge and drove the ASI/Kenny Pettyjohn Racing machine to his 105th win. In was his first win since June of 2007. “This is a car I bought and a motor I bought and it’s all for sale,” said Pettyjohn following his win. “I just came down tonight to try it out.” Jarvis finished in the second spot with Whaley ending a good drive in third. Fourth went to King and Putz turned in a person best in the division finishing in fifth. Heats were won by Robinson and Whaley. Clint Chalabala gets first career win in Crate Models- Sixteen-year-old Clint Chalabala started on the pole and drove a flawless race to pick up his first career win in the 15-lap Crate Model feature. It had been a tough season up to this point for the young driver as he destroyed his new car earlier in the year. Chalabala started on the point with former champion, Jack Mullins chasing in second. As Chalabala opened a comfortable lead, Mullins and Chris Hitchens locked into a fight for second. Chalabala had built a three and a half second lead by lap nine when it was erased by the only caution of the race when Brenty James came to a stop. Chalabala continued to be smooth in setting the pace as Hitchens edged by Mullins for second. Nick Davis held the fourth spot and Joe Warren was running in fifth. It was a perfect night for Chalabala as he took the checkered in the Cain Construction/Rocket. Mullins regained second on the final lap with Hitchens finishing in third. Fourth went to Davis and Warren rounded out the top five. Ryan Walls set fast time in qualifying.
Grasso, Sammons dominate URC Run at Delaware International By Charlie Brown
The Taylor and Messick Delaware State Sprint Series returned to the Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night as previous Delaware State winners JJ Grasso and Davey Sammons went to battle for the win. Grasso won three of four previous events at Delaware International and Sammons was the winner of the fourth show in August. On Saturday night, it was Grasso and Sammons who set a blistering pace running first and second most of the race. When the checker flag fell, it was Grasso driving the Palladino Motorsports/BK Leasing #99 taking the win, their sixth Rislone URC Sprint Series feature win of the season. Sammons, who was actually closing in on Grasso over the last two laps, finished a strong second. Grasso and Sammons are also ranked first and second in the season long URC point chase. A field of 29 URC Sprint cars turned out for the event with heat race victories going to Kramer Williamson, Andy Best and Davey Sammons as Curt Michael won the Don Ott “B” Main. In the 25 lap URC feature, Kramer Williamson was the early race leader. At the drop of the green flag, Grasso was on a mission to the front, racing in second by the third lap. Following a seventh lap restart for Chris Weiss who spun in turn two and fourth place runner Tim Hogue who stopped on the backstretch with mechanical problems. Grasso powered into the lead as Williamson, Sammons, Brett Schoenly and Chris Coyle made up the top five. The caution was displayed again on lap eight, this time for Nick Schlauch who stopped in turn two. When green flag racing resumed, Grasso was the leader with Sammons in the chase and Williamson a solid third. Lap 12 brought out another yellow flag, this time for Chris Weiss who spun in turn two. At the same time, two-time URC winner this year and defending champion Curt Michael stopped on the backstretch with driveline problems. Michael who started 19th was already racing in tenth was the mechanical problems sidelined him from competition. As the field took the halfway sign, Grasso was the pace setter followed by Sammons, Williamson, Josh Weller and Chris Coyle The top five remained unchanged as the race went on but it was obvious that Sammons was reeling in Grasso. With two laps remaining, Justin Collett moved the John Pinter sprinter into fourth and began to chase down Chris Coyle. At the front of the pack, Sammons was trying to get within striking distance of Grasso. As the checker flag fell, Grasso of Pedricktown, N.J. ,was the winner, his sixth of the season as Davey Sammons pocketed the runner-up spot. Kramer Williamson finished followed by Chris Coyle and Josh Weller.

Hometown Delaware photo project now online For the last several years, the Delaware Public Archives has been displaying its photographs in local libraries to help identify the names of Delawareans. Most of the pictures displayed date from the 1930’s through the 1950’s and include class photographs, athletic teams, bands, service organizations and a variety of other pictures.
Known as the Hometown Delaware program, the project has identified more than 1,900 individuals using the assistance of Delaware library patrons. With the success of the program at the local level, the Archives is hoping to identify more individuals by posting the photographs online for a worldwide audience. To participate in this new web com-
ponent of Hometown Delaware, go to the Delaware Public Archives website at archives.delaware.gov. The pictures are organized by the counties where they originated. There are more than 540 people to identify in this first set of online pictures. Some photographs will contain individuals who have already been identified but need
others in the picture to be named. With over 800,000 photographs in the Delaware Public Archives collection, the photographs will continue to change as more individuals are identified. For more information about the project, contact Lori Hatch at the Delaware Public Archives, 302-744-5067, lori.hatch@state. de.us.

Two quick, healthy kid meals guaranteed to please Hectic. Ask any working parent what it’s like around the house at the start of the school year and this is the word that’s likely to pop up most often. Going from no particular routine to a schedule of after school sports, dinner, homework, back to school nights, etc., can inject added stress that even the Cleaver family would be hard put to smile through. Too much take out can prove pricey and fast food isn’t an option for today’s nutritionconscious moms and dads. The trick is to find meals that are not only quick, easy and healthy, but also (and this is where it gets dicey) kid pleasers. The two recipes below come highly recommended and fit the criteria admirably. Give one or both a try and enjoy a tensionreduced weeknight. Golden Fish Sticks Serves 4
strips Position rack in top third of oven and preheat to 500 degrees. Mix mayonnaise, relish and 3 teaspoons lemon juice in small bowl. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Grind cornflakes in processor until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to bowl; mix in lemon peel. Mix butter and remaining 3 teaspoons lemon juice in small bowl. Season fish with salt and pepper. Brush with lemon butter, then dip into cornflake mixture, coating completely. Arrange fish on baking sheet. Sprinkle with any remaining cornflake mixture. Bake fish
The Practical Gourmet 5 tablespoons regular or lowfat mayonnaise 3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish 6 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, divided 5 cups cornflakes 4 teaspoons grated lemon peel 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted 1 1/2 pounds white fish fillets cut crosswise into 3/4-inch-wide
until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve with sauce. Adapted from Bon Appetit, November 1995
Fast Deep-Dish Pizza Serves 8 2 28-ounce cans plum tomatoes, drained 2 large garlic cloves, pressed 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano, crumbled 1 teaspoon dried basil, crumbled 3 teaspoons olive oil Cornmeal 1 pound (1 loaf) frozen bread dough, thawed 1 pound shredded mozzarella (about 4 cups) 7 ounces thinly sliced pepperoni 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Place in strainer and drain well. Combine tomatoes with garlic, parsley, oregano and basil in bowl. Brush 12-in-diameter deep-dish pizza pan with 1 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle pan with cornmeal. Roll bread dough out to 13-inch round on lightly floured surface. Transfer dough to pan, extending 1 inch up pan sides. Spread dough with 1 cup tomato mixture. Sprinkle half of mozzarella over top with half of pepperoni and remaining tomato mixture. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Distribute remaining pepperoni atop mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Drizzle with remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil. Bake until cheese bubbles and begins to brown and crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes. Bon Appetit, November 1991

State outlines plans for flu season
State agencies are working together to prepare for this year’s flu season and Delawareans are encouraged to take precautions to protect themselves and their families to limit the spread of viruses. Health officials have been working since this spring’s outbreak of the H1N1 flu strain to be ready when the flu season begins in the fall. Officials urge Delawareans to take common-sense steps, such as washing their hands and covering their mouths when coughing, to prevent contraction and spread of the flu. Delawareans are also urged to stay home from work or school when sick.The Division of Public Health is preparing to have additional flu clinics open this season to provide traditional flu vaccines as well as targeted vaccines from H1N1, and will be working with medical providers schools to increase the public’s awareness. Secretary of Education Lillian Lowery said the Department is working to get out messages to parents and staff regarding ways to avoid getting the flu or sharing it with others. Those include practicing healthy habits (sleep, nutrition, etc.), practicing good respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene and not sending children to school if they have a fever or other symptoms of being ill. The Department of Education and the Division of Public Health are working on plans now for the voluntary vaccination of school children, who are at risk for the H1N1 virus.

Lab tests aren’t often necessary By Dr. Anthony Policastro
Many patients come to the office asking for lab tests or X-rays. They often do not realize that these tests do not always add a lot to the diagnosis. When a doctor sees a patient, there are many possible diagnoses. The information that the patient gives eliminates many of those. The questions that the physician asks helps narrow the possibilities even further. The next step is the physical examination. Once the physician has narrowed down the list of possibilities, the exam helps focus on what the actual diagnosis is. A good history and physical exam is much more important than lab tests or X-rays. One of the things I like to tell the lab personnel is that you should not often be surprised by a test result. You should know what result to expect before you order the test. If the history and physical have been done correctly, surprises should be few. In addition, if you are sure of a diagnosis before you do the test, perhaps you should not even do it. There is an old saying in medicine. Think of what you will do if the test is positive. Think of what you will do if the test is negative. If the answer is the same, don’t do the test. Why waste your time if you are going to treat the patient the same way regardless? This becomes important as we further discuss the ways of decreasing the costs of medical care.

One typical example occurs when a patient is transferred from one hospital to another. Usually, there are multiple basic lab tests that are done when a patient gets admitted to a hospital. Those tests are done by the hospital lab and the referring hospital relies on those test results. However, when a patient reaches the new hospital, those tests are usually repeated all over again. It is almost like the first hospital’s lab results cannot be trusted. This is wasteful. There is a story about how these things increase the cost of medical practice. A woman had a pet duck. One morning she woke up and the duck was just lying there. She took it to the vet. The vet told her that the duck was dead. She could not believe it. She asked the vet if there was not some other test that could be done. The vet let a Labrador retriever out of a cage. The dog sniffed at the duck and walked away. The vet told the woman that was confirmation. She wanted something else to be tried. So the vet let a Siamese cat out of a cage. The cat came and sniffed the duck from one end to the other. The cat jumped off the table. The woman indicated that she would have to accept the fact. She asked what the bill would be. The vet told her it would be $350. She was amazed at how expensive that was. The vet told her that it was only $50 to make the diagnosis. However, the Lab test and the cat scan added the rest of the cost. We too need to be aware at how much more cost our expectations for tests add to the system.

MORNING STAR • SEPTEMBER 10 - 16, 2009
Take a moment to appreciate Doing the Towns Together the wonderful times we’re in LAUREL AND DELMAR SOCIALS Moments With Mike Virginia ‘Mike’ Barton one week. This week our neighbor had cataract surgery. What a change! Nowadays the patient is driven to the surgical center, the physician/ eye specialist removes the cataract, and in a few short hours the patient walks out of the center, and is driven to his home. The entire process takes only several hours. The patient is immediately mobile and in a few short days is back to his normal routine. Amazing. It hasn’t been too many years ago that if a person was unhappy with the shape of their nose, or the sagging skin under their chin, or her puffy eyes, or body weight, they just accepted the fact that this was their problem and they could decide to make everyone else miserable by constantly complaining or they could accept their situation and get on with their life. Medical science now has helped untold thousands of people have a more pleasurable life through plastic surgery of every sort imaginable or through weight reduction. Selfconfidence has been restored to thousands and thousands of people who now enjoy a more “normal” life. Knee replacements, hip replacements, and replacement of other body parts have become commonplace surgeries in these days and times. Quality of life has definitely changed. Birthing babies is another area that has come a long way through the years. Nowadays delivering a newborn has become almost a drive-thru operation. Gone are the days when the newborn and the mother spent at least one week in the hospital following the birth. The new mother is lucky to even get a 24-hour hospital stay after delivery in these current times. Through the years so much has changed in the field of medicine. Unfortunately, we have come to expect miracles rather than appreciate these newer developments in our changing world. The areas mentioned in this column are just the tip of the iceberg of medical miracles. And, they are truly miracles. With all of the turmoil in the world today, we should each pause for just a moment and think about how fortunate we each are to be a part of these days and times.
CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS TODAY. DONʼT HESITATE!
With summer waning, the end is in sight for the major grass cutting several times each week. The rains we have been having have resulted in major growth of the bright green blades seemingly overnight. Riding the tractor/mower or pushing the faithful mower to do the trim is when deep thinking crosses the mind. Concentrating on completing the large quilt in the frame provoke the same deep thoughts. Each of us has a special period when this thought process occurs. Mine happens to be cutting grass or quilting. These early autumn days provide hours to complete a large-bed-sized quilt to be on display with many others created by members of four guilds in lower Kent and Sussex County in mid October at the Milford Senior Center. Delmarvalous, Helping Hands of Dover, Ocean Waves of Rehoboth/Lewes and Piecemakers of Milford join forces on alternate years and present a major show at the Milford Senior Center. On display are 100 bed-sized quilts, wall hangings, a country store, vendors, free demonstrations and silent auction of mini quilts, plus raffle quilts and appraisals. The dates will be Oct. 17 and 18 and usually attracts quilters from all stages of this hobby/skill/craft. Showing how complex and unpredictable our mind can be, as I rode the grass cutter row after row, my mind wandered from the quilt shows I have been involved in, the friends I have made through this hobby, and the changes that have occurred since I received my first lesson from Joan Hook more than 25 years ago. Completing the grass cutting project, I settled down to continuing my quilting at the large frame. It was at this time that my mind kicked into another area and for some unknown reason, I thought of all the changes in the medical field I have witnessed throughout my somewhat long lifetime. Perhaps the process of mentally noting the changes were due to seeing a well-known commedienne on the television. It did not require a mastermind to note that this wellknown person had definitely had one facelift too many. Surgeries of all types are almost commonplace in our lives nowadays. At the time of one of my Dad’s surgeries years ago, his roommate was a man who had cataract surgery. I was only about 12 years old but can still see the man as he laid in the hospital bed, perfectly still, with a sandbag on each side of his face, bandages over his eyes so that no light would enter the justoperated eye. He dared not move a fraction of an inch. He was hospitalized for nearly

‘I never thought I would see the day when American citizens exercising their freedom of speech, taking part in our democracy would be referred to as terrorists’
Does standing up for your vision of America make you a terrorist?
During one of the debates in Obama’s run for the presidency, Obama stated he could be judged by the associations he kept. We learned of several unsavory characters in Obama’s past during the campaign, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Father Flager and Bill Ayers, to name a few, which were ignored by many. Obama claimed that while sitting in
Letters to the Editor
the pew for 20 years, he never heard Rev. Wright spew his vile anti-American rants. Now, the President has added to his list of racdical associations in the form of czars, at least 37 to be exact. These are high-level positions appointed by Obama who have slid under the radar not requiring Senate confirmation. Many of these appointees would not even have passed an FBI background check. The most controversial is Van Jones, Obama’s “green jobs czar.” He is a selfavowed communist who believes white environmentalists poisoned minority communities, believes our government was behind 911 and vows to “transform the whole society.” Others include the science czar, John Holdren, who supports compulsory abortion and steroids in drinking water to pre-
Guest Column What we saw on 9-11 We were able to witness America rise out of the ashes and unite as one to form a strong, solid, compassionate, indomitable force. By Andrew Bell One of my earliest and most vivid memories took place on September 11, 2001. I was eleven years old and in the fourth grade at the time. On that morning, my teacher’s lesson was interrupted by a phone call. She subsequently had us pack up our things and line up by the door. She told us that we were going home for the day. We would have been overjoyed had we not sensed that something was terribly wrong by the worried look in her eyes. I rode home on the bus listening to frenzied reports of the attacks on the radio but, in my youth, comprehending nothing. When I arrived at my house, my mother explained to me that three planes had been piloted into three different buildings. I didn’t understand why this had occurred, but even at age eleven, I recognized its severity and was genuinely frightened. Unmoving, I watched the television reports for several hours after that. I saw endless repeats of the footage of the planes crashing into the towers; I saw human beings, jumping from the towers and dying as they hit the concrete below; and I saw both of the towers collapse, ending thousands of innocent lives. Millions of people my age had similar experiences on September 11, 2001. Although we could barely comprehend all that occurred, we saw every detail unfold on live television. We watched as 2,974 Americans died. We were exposed to suffering and death, many of us for the first time. We were concerned for the victims of the attacks and somehow frightened for our own safety.
vent fertilization; Harold Koh, Obama’s nominee as State Department advisor, who believes the U.S. should follow Sharia (Islamic) law. The emphasis seems to have been on these czars and not the cabinet members. In fact, the czars are directing policy, all without congressional approval. After seeing what the president has set forth in his agenda since inauguration, these associations should not be a surprise to anyone. Obama definitely wants to bring “change” to America. Unfortunately, his idea of change is to dismantle America as we know it with his radical leftist socialist agenda. I believe this White House will stop at nothing to push its agenda. However, the days are gone when people are fainting in the presence of the “anointed one.” Obama can attempt to
We watched as our entire nation shut itself down for several days: schools were dismissed, flights were cancelled, and the stock market was closed. We witnessed subsequent changes in security procedures and foreign policies; we saw the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, the institution of the Patriot Act, and the beginning of the War on Terror. We were the youngest Americans to be affected by the tragedy, and we lost a little bit of our childhood and our innocence that day. But our generation gained something else. We were able to witness America rise out of the ashes and unite as one to form a strong, solid, compassionate, indomitable force. Immediately following the attacks, 200 units of the New York City Fire Department, supplemented by hundreds of off-duty fire fighters and EMTs, rushed into the towers to aid in the rescue efforts, valuing the lives of others above their own. Proud American flags permeated commercial and residential areas as Americans kept alive a spirit of unity and resiliency by rallying around the phrase “United We Stand.” The number of blood donations rose dramatically and relief funds were quickly established to aid the families of victims. Such solidarity even abounded internationally: in Berlin, 200,000 Germans marched to demonstrate their sympathy; the national anthem was played at Buckingham Palace; the Irish government held a national day of mourning; and a prominent French newspaper ran the headline “Nous sommes tous Americains,” or “We are all Americans.” On September 12, 2001, the United States of America was, for the first time since World War II, truly united. And our generation was there to witness it all. The tragedy of September 11th will always be among our childhood memories, but alongside it will be another memory: the image of Americans joining together in support of their country. The image of millions of ordinary citizens working as one to provide physical and emotional relief for one another. The image of individuals giving of themselves simply because it was the right thing to do. And that, above all else, is the legacy September 11th contributed to our generation.

force the bitter pill of universal health care on us, use his big government and Big Brother tactics and now even the classroom as a tool for his left-wing activism, but it is not working. Americans are not standing for it! Obama’s website, Organizing for America, this week stated that on 9/11 there would be a full, 50-state push for health care legislation to combat the “right wing domestic terrorists” who, so effectively in town halls across America, have awoken a sleeping giant. I never thought I would see the day when American citizens exercising their freedom of speech, taking part in our democracy would be referred to as terrorists, Astro turf, the angry mob and brown shirts by the Democratic leaders and the white house. This has insulted and angered the electorate – big mistake! This is outrageous and unacceptable! Have we forgotten 9/11 and the 3,000 Americans who lost their lives to real terrorists? The time has come for Americans to stand up and be counted, to get off the couch and take an active part in our democracy. Look what has been accomplished just in the month of August in town halls across America. This has caused the White House to scramble to repackage their approach. Truth be known, Mr. President, we don’t want what you are selling and we are not buying it! The anger in the town halls did not originate with health care alone, but your radical socialist agenda and your desire to spend our nation into oblivian. Calling and writing your representatives and senators can affect change. Citizens need to ask questions, demand answers and speak boldly without fear. Grab your signs and flags and join us on 9/12 when the taxpayers unleash their “terror” on Washington, D.C. It is time to put Congress on notice. We are not going to take it anymore! America is the greatest nation on earth and so worth fighting for. Hope Whaley

Several months ago, Tony Windsor did a column in your paper about the Country Music Awards and how he felt it wasn’t what country music used to be. I agree with him whole-heartedly; however, he made a comment about how the number that Trace Adkins did during the show was backed by the Marine Chorus. That is where I totally disagree with him. When I read the column, I said to myself ‘that wasn’t the Marine Chorus, that was the West Point Glee Club.’ At the time I had no way to prove it but eventually, I received the quarterly magazine that West Point publishes. In it was an article highlighting the Glee Club performing in Last Vegas (where the DMA Show took place). I am so proud to say that I try to pay close attention whenever West Point is mentioned since my grandson, Cadet Matthew G. Ropelewski, is a second year cadet there. Our Service Academies need and deserve all the support and attention we can give them. They do a tremendous job of equipping

Governor makes Labor Day announcement On Labor Day, Governor Jack Markell announced with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Council 81, Executive Order 10 which affirms the Governor’s support for the state and federally protected right of Delaware State Employees to organize and form their own union. AFSCME Executive Director Michael A. Begatto said, “The right to choose to come together to improve working conditions and protect the dignity of workers through the collective bargaining process is a fundamental democratic right. That is why AFSCME worked so hard to pass Senate Bill 36 in 2007. This law gave collective bargaining right.” “At this time of economic uncertainty and sacrifice for so many hard working families across Delaware, we are pleased to join Governor Markell especially on Labor Day as he expresses his strong support for the right of hard working women and men who serve the State of Delaware to fully utilize their democratic right to discuss organizing and representation through their union at work, free of influence by supervisors,” concluded Begatto.

Dropped in the other day to speak to you but you were busy on the phone. I want to thank you for running my letter to the editor in your guest column. It proved that people do read your printed words. I received 11 requests for the membership applications for the Seaford Community Concerts. Also, two requests about AARP information and a laughable request to write ads for one of our local business owners. Again, thank you. Helen Skyoldager
