The city of Seaford could possibly install solar panels to generate electricity. City manager Dolores Slatcher told members of the city council Tuesday night that one likely spot for the installation is the front yard of the city utility building on Herring Run Road. “There, members of the public could see the panels and learn about them,” Slatcher said. Plus, she added, maintenance on the ground-mounted panels would be easier than if they were put on a roof. Funding for the project would come from the city’s Green Energy Program fund.
Users of city power pay into the fund every month, at the rate of .0178 cents per kilowatt hour of electricity. The fund now has about $17,000 in it. The Green Energy Program, required under state law, was available to residents of the city to help offset the cost of installing and renewable energy system on a home or business. Since the program’s inception in 2006, only two grants have been awarded. The city’s Electric Committee suggested that a better use of the fund would be for a project that would benefit the entire community. Members of the city council agreed and

voted to approve the committee’s recommendation that the current balance of the fund, as well as money that is collected for it in the future, be used on community renewable energy projects. The committee also discussed the possibility of upping the amount that users of city power pay into the Green Energy Program. But, Slatcher said, members decided that, considering the state of the economy, the rate should stay as it is for now. Director of power Rick Garner told the council that the Electric Committee will continue to look at best places for the solar panels.

County Council ponders Sussex Department of Transportation
By Ronald MacArthur
A Sussex County Department of Transportation may not seem as far-fetched as most would think. At its Tuesday, Aug. 24 meeting, Sussex County Council authorized Deputy County Administrator Hal Godwin to research the idea of the county getting into the roadwork business. Council will discuss his report during a meeting in September. The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) has the final say and funds all transportation, including bridges, roads and public transportation, in the county. “There is a disconnect between land use and infrastructure funding,” said Council President Vance Phillips of Laurel. “We were told the state would build roads where development would occur and the state dropped the ball.” Councilman Mike Vincent of Seaford said officials in New Castle County would not even contemplate taking over the roads. “The money goes there; it seems there are no problems getting roads done in New Castle
County. The problem is here because the state is not doing anything.” Councilman George Cole of Ocean View reminded Vincent that even though Sussex County is much larger than New Castle County, its population is more than three times greater – 600,000 compared to 150,000. “But there are a lot more than 150,000 people in Sussex County during the weekends using the roads,” said Councilman Sam Wilson of Georgetown. (The actual population figures, according to the U.S. Census, are 535,000 for New Castle County and 190,000 for Sussex County.) Sussex County has more than 2,300 miles of the state’s 6,281 miles of public roadways. Phillips said he might have the three votes needed to make the dramatic change. The discussion occurred during the presentation of a draft capital transportation program request by County Administrator David Baker. The requests will be submitted to DelDOT as part of its 2011-2017 capital transportation program prior to a Thursday, Sept. 16 workshop at
Singletree Stables riding school plans celebration for 40 years in business
Singletree Stables, located on Briarhook Road just northwest of Seaford, is celebrating 40 years of business with an Open House on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 9 to 11 a.m. All are welcome to stop in and tour the barns, ride the horses, play games and learn about tack and technique. Started in 1970 by Janet Esterson, Singletree Stables Riding School has educated, trained and put smiles on hundreds of student’s faces, young and old. In March 1976, Mollie A. Esterson, Janet’s daughter, completed her course of study at Meredith Manor Equestrian Career College in Waverly, W.V. She returned to her western Sussex County roots and assumed the responsibility of operating the Riding School. Mollie received three degrees at Meredith Manor: Riding Instructor, Camp Instructor and Riding Master. Her education and experience are the reasons her students continue taking lessons year after year. Mollie eventually became an International Side Saddle instructor and judge. She also completed the American Riding Instructor Certification Program. She founded the Briarhook Pony Club, works with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, and holds tours to introduce young children to the wonderful world of horseback riding. Singletree Stables offers many programs, each designed to achieve specific results. Her approach is not one size fits all. Some of the programs include: Summer Camps, Private Lessons, Family Lessons, Group Lessons, Gymkhana, Saddle Seat, Hunter, Dressage, Western Pleasure and Side Saddle. For more information, call Mollie at 629-4971 and visit www. singletreestables.net.
DelDOT’s south district administration building off Route 113 in Georgetown. The workshop will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Council members said as the need for more road improvements grows in the county, the amount of money available through DelDOT shrinks. Phillips said the county does a good job providing sewer service to county residents, and it could
do the same with roads. “When will Sussex County ever be given its fair share of transportation funding if we are not in control?” he asked. Phillips said if the county received its share of revenue, including fuel taxes and federal transportation funding, it could do a better job. “It wouldn’t happen overnight; it would take a transition period,” he said.
It may be a hard sell for Phillips. At least two council members voiced concern even before Godwin has a chance to prepare a report. “I’m not in favor of a Sussex DOT,” said Councilwoman Joan Deaver of Rehoboth Beach. “We need to have a conversation first because taxes go up when government grows,” Cole said.

Carper announces $99,000 grant for senior center
On Tuesday, Aug. 31, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) announced a $99,000 discretionary grant through the Department of Health and Human Services for the Nanticoke Senior Center in Seaford. For over a year, Sen. Carper’s staff met with community leaders, providing opportunities for federal funding and advice. The Nanticoke Senior Center initiated a $1.3 million capital campaign to renovate an existing 11,000 sq. ft. senior center facility in the heart of Seaford.

“Our mission is to help the aging population remain healthy and active and be an active part of the community longer. The seed funding of this facility will pay dividends for generations to come.” In recent years the Seaford region has grown older, due both to the aging of its native population and an influx of retirement-age residents. The new Center’s
“life enhancement” orientation will keep Seaford seniors physically and mentally strong so that they can continue to be independent, contributing members of the community. Currently, 32% of Seaford’s 7,085 residents are over the age of 55 and within the next two decades, nearly 38% of the population will be seniors.

Traffic crash death levels declining A recent announcement that traffic deaths nationwide fell to their lowest level last year in the United States since the start of the Korean War is fantastic news, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic, and mirrors what has happened to highway deaths locally. Last year the highway death toll declined 9.7 percent, dropping from 37,423 in 2008 to 33,808. That’s according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2009 Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). In Delaware, the highway death toll fell 4.1 percent, according to data from FARS. The last time the number of traffic fatalities was that low across the Untied States was 1950, when 33,186 fatalities occurred. All-in-all, passenger car occupant fatalities declined for the seventh consecutive year, and are at their lowest level since NHTSA began collecting fatality crash data in 1975. Traffic and highway safety experts cite a number of reasons for the declining highway death toll, including safer cars, higher seatbelt usage, more drunk driving patrols, and better law enforcement. “Another reason for the huge decline is the recession and the fact that we are driving so much less compared to three years ago,” said Jim Lardear, AAA Mid-Atlantic’s director of public and government affairs. The fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled (VMT) fell to a historic low of 1.13 in 2009, according to the 2009 Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). After plummeting at the onset of the recession, it appears the vehicle-miles traveled (VMT) is flat-lining. For example, the Cumulative VMT total for 2009 changed by 0.2% (6.6 billion vehicle miles). As of June 2010, the Cumulative Travel for 2010 changed by 0.1% (1.6 billion vehicle miles). The figures belie a worrisome trend, frets AAA Mid-Atlantic.
Nanticoke offers flu shots
“Roads are in worse condition because of federal and state DOT’s fiscal woes,” said Lardear. “Funding of safety programs has been cut, especially since the feds have not reauthorized the US DOT budget, and state and local police budgets have been cut heavily because of the recession, leaving fewer police patrolling our roads today than anytime in recent memory.” The number and percentage of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities remain a vexing problem for law enforcement agencies and highway safety advocates. Nationwide, 32 percent or about one-third of the total fatalities involved alcohol, reports NHTSA. Delaware, along with 16 other states and the District of Columbia, saw increases in the number of persons killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes. An estimated 2.22 million people were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2009.
It’s time to get your seasonal flu shot. Influenza is a serious disease that affects many people, including the elderly and those with serious, long-term health problems. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this year is recommending that individuals get their seasonal flu vaccines as soon as they can. While there are many different flu viruses, the 2010–2011 flu vaccine protects against the three viruses that research suggests will be most common: influenza A H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus and the 2009 H1N1 virus. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will be offering seasonal flu shots to individuals 18 years of age and older at Nanticoke Occupational Health (543 Shipley Street, Suite F, Seaford, DE) from: 1-4 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. on Sept. 22, Sept. 29 and Oct. 6; and 9 a.m.- noon on Sept. 23, Sept. 30 and Oct. 7. Cost is $10 per adult. Medicare Part B billing is available with proof of Medicare insurance. Pre-registration is not required. For more information, call Nanticoke Occupational Health at 629-6875.
Bridge closed in Bridgeville
‘See Something, Say Something’
After a regular inspection review, the Department of Transportation’s (DelDOT) Bridge Section determined that the bridge over Bridgeville Branch on Main Street between Adams Road and Federalsburg Road in Bridgeville should be closed for safety reasons due to scour concerns. Scour causes sediment from around bridge abutments to be washed away. The bridge is closed until further notice. As part of the inspection process, DelDOT’s Bridge Section visits a bridge site, walking upstream and downstream from the bridge and taking notes on the condition of the water way. Other characteristics of the river are noted, such as locations of river bends near the bridge and what possible effects these may have on the bridge. Many things affecting scour are examined, such as the type of rock or sediment carried by the river and the angle at which the river flows toward and away from the bridge.
The anniversary of September 11th should always serve as a reminder to Delawareans of the need to remain vigilant in the fight on terrorism and avoid the temptation to become complacent. This month, the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DSHS) is launching its “See Something, Say Something” campaign to remind citizens to remain alert and observant of their surroundings and report suspicious activity to the State’s anti-terrorism tip line at 1-800-FORCE-1-2. Information reported to the tip line is channeled to the Delaware Information Analysis Center. All tips are reviewed by intelligence analysts and forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement agency for further investigation. Citizens are our first line of defense when it comes to defeating terrorism. Let’s work together to put a stop to terrorism. Join our “See Something, Say Something” campaign by recommitting yourself to the fight on terrorism. Call 1-800-FORCE-1-2 (1-800-367-2312) to report suspicious activity.

Each Office is Independently Owned & Operated
The Delaware Public Service Commission has approved Delmarva Power’s Dover SUN Park contracts. The approval represents a final step before construction gets under way on one of the largest solar energy projects in the region. The 10-megawatt (MW) solar power plant will be built on 103 acres of Doverowned property in the Garrison Oak Technology Park. The utility-scale solar power plant, which will be owned by White Oak Solar Energy, LLC, an affiliate of LS Power, would supply enough clean power to serve 1,300 homes. Construction of Dover SUN Park is planned to start later this year, with full-scale operations expected to begin next summer. The Delmarva Power agreements include: • A long-term contract with White Oak Solar Energy, LLC for the purchase of SRECs associated with the solar energy output from Dover SUN Park; and • A contract with the Delaware SEU for the preservation of SRECs and the ability to buy them back at a later date. The Dover SUN Park will be the first tenant within the 389-acre Garrison Oak Technology Park, owned by Dover. “With the Commission’s full support, Dover SUN Park can become a reality for Delaware, creating green, clean energy as well as more than a hundred construction jobs for the state,” said Gary Stockbridge, president, Delmarva Power Region.

Glenn Phillips, Jr. proud of his role in helping ‘Bulldogs’ By James Diehl
or four years in the 1990s, it became a tradition – put on the shoes, the gear and the red and white jersey and run through a large Bulldog-emblazoned tunnel to the tune of the Laurel High School marching band playing the familiar fight song. What Glenn Phillips, Jr., wouldn’t give to put on that jersey one more time, to hear the roar of the fans, to suit up for his alma mater again. “The red and the white [colors] of Laurel just mean the world to me,” says Phillips, a 1999 graduate of Laurel High School. “It’s the pride factor; I tell my kids all the time to take pride in what they wear on their chest. There’s nothing like wearing Bulldog red and white and running out onto that field.” Following his father’s lead, Phillips became involved in the popular Laurel Pop Warner program 10 years ago and is currently serving his third year as president of the organization. Now overseeing a group that boasts more than 200 energetic youngsters, Phillips sees his role as a chance to give back to the community, while also readying the Laurel High School Bulldogs of the future. “We have a great tradition here; if you live in Laurel, you play football,” says Phillips, a center and linebacker for the high school program from 1995-1998. “Once you’re a bulldog, you’re always a bulldog. And that’s something we instill in these kids as young as seven years old.” The Laurel Pop Warner program is now in its 29th year and is open for football players from 7 to 15 years old and for cheerleaders as young as 5. Again in 2010, there is a waiting list for every age group in the much sought-after program. “This has just been instilled in the community for years and years and its to the point now where I have to set time limits on signups; people can’t get in line until a

Contact James Diehl at 302-222-2685 or email Bryant richardson, brichardson@ mspublications.com certain time,” says Phillips. “I’ve seen parents out there as early as midnight the night before to make sure that their kids are in the Laurel Pop Warner program.” The kids in the program play their games on the weekend, on the very same field where Phillips and hundreds of Bulldogs before and after him ran onto the field to do battle. Phillips sees those games as more than just a chance to teach fundamentals and be successful – he sees them as a sort of preview into the Friday nights that are sure to come. The kids get worked up, the parents get excited and the coaches can’t help but smile – this is “Bulldog Country” after all. “When we play our games, the Bulldog tunnel is there and the music is blaring and the kids run out onto the field,” says Phillips. “It’s totally different from Friday night, but they understand that what happens on Saturdays is a dress rehearsal for [future] Friday nights.” The Laurel Pop Warner program has taught many young boys in the southern Delaware town the game of football over the years. They are often bruising young men who wear the red and white with pride, just like Phillips did for so many years. The young ladies of Laurel usually stay on the sidelines, cheering on their brothers and their friends. That’s how Darian Shockley spent her early years on the program, until going to her parents one day and ex-

pressing interest in playing on the field with the boys. She’s still playing nose guard and fullback for the Pee Wee program today, the only girl who’s played football for Laurel Pop Warner since Phillips became involved in the program a decade ago. “Darian is just a hard nosed girl and she loves the game; she can really hold her own against the boys,” says Phillips. “She’s just one of the guys and that’s how she wants it to be; it’s actually a good thing to see. She was even the leading tackler in one of our games this year.” In addition to his role with the Pop Warner program, Phillips also serves as an assistant to head coach Clarence Giles with the Laurel High School varsity football team. He
is in his second year as the offensive coordinator for his alma mater. Football is his life, specifically the red and white of the Laurel Bulldogs. “When you play football for Laurel, it means something. You’re not just doing this for yourself or for your family, you’re out there playing for your entire community,” says Phillips. “Seeing the people up in the stands cheering for you, it’s a pride thing. I tell my kids that there are many guys who have come through here who would die to be where they are right now.” Like most effective leaders, Phillips gives a lot of credit for the program’s success to his team of coaches and the dedicated group of parents he says makes all the difference Continued to page nine

Nanticoke Health Service Tribute awards announced Nanticoke Health Services has announced the recipients of the 6th Annual Nanticoke Tributes for Healthcare Leadership. Nanticoke Tributes awards individuals who have made significant contributions to the provision and improvement of health care in the communities of Western Sussex County. The awards will be presented at a dinner and reception on October 28, 2010 at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. The Founders Award will recognize two new inductees, Sister Rosita Alvarez and the Soroptimist International of Seaford. Sister Alvarez was instrumental in the start of La Esperanza, Inc., a multi-service support organization that assists with the assimilation of Latinos into the broader Sussex County population. As an advocate for Nanticoke Health
Services she has been directly involved with pre and post-natal care for Hispanic women and health care for their babies. Soroptimist International of Seaford
is an international volunteer organization focusing on improving the lives of women and girls in Seaford. Soroptimist International of Seaford is a long time supporter of Nanticoke Health Services, contributing to the improvement of healthcare services for the community, the expansion of the Emergency Room and to support women of domestic violence. The Charles C. Allen, Jr. Philanthropy Award is being presented to Rex L. Mears. Mr. Mears is being recognized for his dedication and commitment to Nanticoke Health Services as a member of the Board of Directors, serving in various positions, including past Chairman. Additionally he is a member of the newly formed Foundation Board. He has generously contributed his time, talent, and resources for the expansion of Nanticoke Health Services.
The Nanticoke Mears Health Campus bares his family’s name and is located on the land that once was the location of the Mears’ family home. The Nanticoke Tribute Awards also recognizes a new inductee into the Nanticoke Physicians Hall of Fame. This award recognizes and honors physicians who have served their communities with dedication and distinction. This year, Louis F. Owen, Jr., MD will be presented with the Hall of Fame Award. The Nanticoke Tribute Awards will be presented at a dinner on October 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. The event will be held at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. Dinner sponsor for the evening is PNC Investments. Tickets are $100 and may be purchased by calling the Nanticoke Health Services Foundation at 302-629-6611, ext. 8944 or MorrisR@nanticoke.org.

in the world. Of the 17 coaches in the Laurel Pop Warner program, only three have children who actually suit up and play on Saturdays. To Phillips, that speaks volumes. “These guys are giving back to the community and they’re giving back to the kids,” says Phillips. “You know when you come to Laurel Pop Warner that you’re going to get
good coaching from good coaches who have no agendas. They’re just here to help the community.” As for the parents of the children, Phillips says he couldn’t ask for more – from helping with fundraising, to getting their kids to practice on time and taking care of a host of other weekly functions, the parents are the glue that holds the program together. “Laurel Pop Warner wouldn’t be where it

is today without the support from the community leaders and the parents,” says Phillips. “They understand that we’re out there for what’s best for their kids. I think Laurel Pop Warner has the best parents ever.” Phillips may not be able to run through that tunnel on Friday nights anymore, at least not as a player. He may not be able to hit anyone, or talk things up in the locker room or take on the rival Delmar Wildcats every
fall. But he can still mold the Bulldogs of tomorrow, and that’s exactly what he aims to do. “Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog,” is a way of life for the proud Laurel High School alumnus, one he still lives his life by today. “It’s about pride in your community; that’s what I try to instill in these kids,” he says. “It’s just about pride in the red and white.”

Connie and Boyd Mitchell
This 2500-square-foot, two story brick and siding house was a labor of love, built in 2006 by Doug from a house plan found online. Features of the home include high ceilings, rich wood floors and cabinets, and a kitchen and breakfast nook that look out to a trellised patio complete with a bubbling koi pond with a resident bullfrog. Son, Joel’s blue walls are sprinkled with action figures while young Delaney’s pink room displays Disney characters painted by artist, Lisa Phillips. The upstairs provides space for Doug’s office and a children’s playroom with crawlspace ‘hideaways”. A hall table refinished by Doug stands on legs from an 18th century grand piano and a beautiful weathered stump stands in the master bathroom. This unique piece was given to Doug after the owner, a carpenter friend, passed away. These are but a few of the interesting sights in this couple’s warm, cozy home.

Within the past year this couple downsized from a large Seaford area home to their current residence in Heritage Shores. The transition resulted in a cozy home filled with their favorite things. Rich toned wood furniture and cabinets are showcased by walls colored in ‘Nomadic Dessert” paint and softened by custom window treatments by Windows 2000. Thomas Kinkade art pieces enhance the mantel and a dining room wall. Family treasures – Connie’s childhood piano, her mom’s small drop leaf chest, a treadle sewing machine and washstand – add history to various areas, and a corner decorative tree supplies changing seasonal touches.

Board will open with Pledge and moment of silence
By Lynn R. Parks
The Seaford School Board will once again open its meetings with the Pledge of Allegiance and a moment of silence. The board voted Monday night to restore them to the regular agenda. The vote was 3 to 1, with board member Katy Kimpton the lone dissenting voice. Member Carlton Cannon was not present. In an explanation of her vote, Kimpton pointed to the possibility that during the moment of silence, board member Frank Parks will not remain quiet. During the moment of silence at the start of the board’s June meeting, Parks, who was sworn in as a board member at the July meeting, recited the Lord’s Prayer. After that meeting, Parks said that he would recite the prayer during moments of silence from then on. “This is a personal decision I’ve made to try to give glory to God vocally,” he said. The moment of silence has been off the agenda since. Monday night, Kimpton said that she couldn’t support having a moment of silence on the agenda, “as long as one member disagrees about the definition of silence.” She added that she would not vote to put the district in danger of a lawsuit. The Indian River School District is currently defending itself in court over its policies that opponents say support Christianity. Tuesday morning, Parks said that as long as the Indian River case is pending
in court, he plans to refrain from praying aloud during the moment of silence. “I have agreed to wait as far as praying during the meeting,” he said. But Carol Beth Lambert, who spoke during the public participation part of Monday’s meeting, said that she would not object if her tax dollars were used to defend the school district in a fight over prayer. “This is the time to jump on the bandwagon in support of Indian River,” she said. And she defended Christian prayer in public places, saying that it’s what the majority want. “It’s time to do what’s good for the whole community, not what’s good for just one person,” she said. Lambert was one of six people who spoke during the board’s public participation session on the matter of prayer. Her husband, Doug, also defended prayer at the school board meetings. Dana Caplan, Seaford, was among the four people who spoke during the public participation against prayer at school board meetings. Caplan, who is Jewish, also spoke during a prayer session held in the board room 15 minutes before the start of the board meeting. This was the second time that the board room has been opened early for anyone who wishes to pray. Board member Clint Dunn reminded the nearly 40 people there that the prayer sessions are not a board activity and that the decision to hold them was not a board decision. During Monday night’s session, Parks
offered a prayer and then led the group in the Lord’s Prayer. Addressing the crowd, Caplan said that she wants to ensure that her three sons, aged 14, 12 and 9, feel a part of the community in which they live. “I am as spiritual as anyone here,” she said. “I think it’s time that we understand that our demographics are changing. We have Hindus in our community, and Muslims. Everyone is entitled to believe as they please. And the school district has to recognize all of them or no one.” Parks told her that he respects all faiths. “Jesus didn’t speak against any religion,” he said. “You telling me what Jesus did tells me that you don’t understand my faith at all,” Caplan replied. Retired SHS biology teacher Dan Cannon told the board that Parks is pursuing a “personal agenda to make his…beliefs part of teaching and learning in the Seaford School District.” Such an agenda, Cannon continued, is prohibited by the Constitution, which forbids the state from establishing a religion or promoting one religion over another. “Virtually all citizens pay for the operation of public schools through their taxes,” Cannon read from a prepared letter. “If Frank Parks were successful in including his personal religious beliefs…he would, in essence, require all citizens to pay for the teaching of his beliefs, regardless of whether they hold different religious beliefs or no religious beliefs at all. This would be patently unjust and borders

on the absurd.” Retired teacher Wayne Rigby praised the school district for “respecting the separation of church and state” and at the same time “allowing freedom of religious speech” at the prayer session. Julie Rigby, also a retired teacher, reminded the school board members that they are elected to serve students, “not to pursue your own personal agenda.” She added, “You have to ask yourselves, ‘Is what I am doing helping students to learn, to mature, and to become productive members of society?’ Anything else is a waste of time. We want you to focus on our students. We need you to focus on them, not on your personal agenda.”
Seaford referendum date is set
A public referendum on the proposed annexation of the Moose Lodge property on alternate U.S. 13 will be Monday, Oct. 18. Voting will take place in city hall from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Members of the lodge are requesting annexation in order to be able to hook up to the city’s water system. The building is being renovated after part of it collapsed this winter during a snowstorm and the state fire marshal’s office is requiring that a sprinkler system be installed. Without access to city water, the lodge would have to put up a water tower. Residents of the city, as well as property owners, are allowed to vote. For additional information, call city hall, 629-9173.

National Depression Screening Day
With soaring gas prices, rising mortgages, and a recession looming, no one can blame you for feeling anxious or overwhelmed. These days it is common and understandable to be angry, worried and even gloomy, especially if you lost your job, your house, or are stressed about paying bills. Worry, anger and stress are normal, appropriate and even necessary during life’s difficult moments. But when negative feelings prevent you from doing your daily activities or interacting with friends and loved ones, it might be time to seek help. Attend Mental Health Association in Delaware’s National Depression Screening Day event on Oct. 7 at several locations in Delaware. As part of the program, you will have the opportunity to complete a brief, written questionnaire, learn about the symptoms of depression, and how to help a friend or family member who may be at risk. You will also have the option of talking to a health care professional. Locally, the event will be held at Laurel State Service Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; La Red, by appointment; and Georgetown Easter Seals from 1 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 7-8. For more information about National Depression Screening Day or MHA in Delaware, visit www.mhainde.org.

By Dr. Anthony Policastro As a developmental pediatrician I emphasize that the purpose of punishment is to get people to change their behavior. The amount of punishment only needs to be just enough to make that happen. Parents often struggle with how to do that. It is interesting to see how our legal system does that. I once had a conversation with a child psychiatrist who is a friend of mine. He told me that in our society, the legal system pays more attention to money than it does to improving behavior. He used an example of two adolescents that committed the same serious crime. The one without money to pay lawyers would go to jail. The one with money would go to the child psychiatrist. The expectation of the system was that each would be punished enough to no longer commit the same crime in the future. In actuality, the punishments were so different that the end result would have to be different. At the time, I thought that it was an item of interest. Two recent cases suggest that we need to look at the way our legal system has gotten off track in terms of behavior management. We need to use the legal system to make people behave better, but instead we use it in some bizarre ways. Recently a Jet Blue attendant lost it with a passenger. He misbehaved in a bizarre fashion. The likelihood of that kind of thing happening again in the future is rare. Therefore, the punishment to prevent it from happening should be one that involves a firm slap on the wrist. The district attorney has decided otherwise. He now faces reckless endangerment in the first degree and criminal mischief in the second degree. Both of these crimes are “D” felonies punishable by up to seven years in prison. While he will likely not receive jail time, he will run up lawyer costs. Hopefully, he can make enough television appearances to pay for them. Of course that is another issue. Why should someone, with bad be-
havior, be rewarded for that behavior on national television? Our system over-punishes the individual in the justice system but rewards him in the media. How does that affect his future behavior? On the other end of the spectrum is a famous football player. A woman had previously alleged that he raped her and he denied it. Then earlier this year, he went to a bar. There were several women there who were not old enough to legally drink but he bought them drinks anyway. When one of them was drunk enough, he took her off to the bathroom. His two bodyguards stood outside the door and they would not let her girlfriends in. The result was that she accused him of rape. The circumstantial evidence clearly suggests that was the case. The problem was that it needed to be something that could be proven in court and there was not enough concrete evidence to do that. The girl could have spent thousands of dollars in lawyer fees. She could have had her personal life raked over the coals in court. However, she chose not to do so and no charges were filed. The National Football League decided that the evidence was strong enough to punish him anyway. Now, news reporters from everywhere are indicating that since he was not formally charged, no crime was committed. Therefore, since he could afford the best lawyers, he should not be punished. He should be allowed to continue doing the same thing that he appears to have done to two women already. My suspicion is that without the punishment that the league gave him, his behavior would not have changed at all. Behavior change is what the legal system should be about. Instead it is more often about the games people with money can play. Hopefully, as parents, we do a better job with behavior management with our own children.

Healthy Recipe contest winner On Aug. 21, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and the Western Sussex Farmers’ Market were happy to award Jackie Tulloch of Milton, for submitting the winning recipe to the Heart Healthy Recipe Contest. Her winning Gazpacho recipe was prepared and shared at the Western Sussex Farmers’ Market by Nanticoke’s Executive Chef, George Turner. Jackie Tulloch likes to cook for her husband, Matt Tulloch, and 7-year-old son Matt. She also has a 24-year-old daughter, Jillian who lives in Philadelphia. When Jackie isn’t busy in the kitchen she
spends her time volunteering for Meals on Wheels out of Milford, which she has done for the past 14 years. She also volunteers at her son’s school, Milton Elementary. Jackie’s winning recipe was passed down from her mother and adapted by her to fit her restricted diet. Jackie has Stage 5 Kidney Disease that severely restricts her diet and robs her of much of her energy. Jackie still enjoys home-cooked food while she is not feeling well by keeping her previously cooked meals frozen and then heating them up.

families were destroyed on September 11, 2001 and who feel this Mosque is inappropriate just feet from where their friends and families, Christians and Muslims alike, were slaughtered? U.S. flags and Holy Bibles are banned and burned in places throughout the Middle East and we are expected to be tolerant. Christians are murdered and we are expected to be tolerant. Women are stoned and treated much like cattle and we are expected to be tolerant. Yet, a majority of Americans oppose a Muslim Mosque at this one precious place in the United States and we can receive no sign of tolerance. A Florida minister proposes a burning of the Koran, the Muslim holy book. I find this to be a misguided, inappropriate, disrespectful act of ignorance. However, this minister has the Constitutional right to do this. He is duped into believing he has a deal worked out with the Imam that if he does not burn the Koran, the Imam will move the Mosque from Ground Zero. Here we are told if the minister burns the Koran there will be a violent retaliation from the Muslim world all across the globe and our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan will be targeted with increased violence. So, if the minister moves forward with his misguided act of ignorance we can
expect extreme violence and possible retribution against our soldiers and even American tourists. On the other hand, if the Imam moves forward with what has been deemed the inappropriate development of the Mosque at Ground Zero, we can avoid the retaliation and extreme violent ramifications from the Muslim world. Somehow I am missing the equity in the issue of tolerance. We are being held hostage with the threat of extremist violence at every turn. How can this Imam expect we can bridge the cultural gap and bring the Muslim world and the West together when we are given what appears to be nothing but threats of violence if we don’t simply go along with whatever plan is supported by the Muslim people? I can only hope that the people who represent what I believe is a peaceful, tolerant Muslim faith will step forward and decry the acts of violence, and threats of violence, that will continue to drive a wedge into any opportunities for true peace and harmony. I assure you that as a Christian I am willing to stand up against the religious fanatics who will misuse and misinterpret the word of God and gospel of Jesus Christ in order to justify hatred and carry out social injustice. To me this is the only way to travel a road of tolerance.

Home sales up 20 percent in Sussex By Ronald MacArthur Saying Sussex County realtors and county government have a shared interest in real-estate activity, Seaford Realtor Sue Bramhall welcomed county council, administrative staff and housing department staff to the annual appreciation day. Bramhall, chairwoman of the Sussex County Association of Realtors government affairs committee, said the luncheon is scheduled each summer to thank county staff for their efforts. This year’s event took place Tuesday, Aug. 17, at the association’s office along Route 9 outside Georgetown. Bramhall said the number one question on everyone’s mind is: “How’s business?” Experts predict another five or six years until the housing market returns to normal, she said, and the biggest factor leading to recovery is the creation of jobs; more than 7 million jobs have been lost. She said the good news is that interest rates, around 4.5 percent, are the lowest in two to three generations. The association predicts rates will remain low through 2012, rising slightly to just above 6 percent. Overall, home sales in the county are running about 20 percent ahead of last
year, Bramhall said, and the average selling price of a house is above last year. But, she added, realtors are waiting to see the total effect of the loss of the federal tax credit, which helped to increase sales in late 2009 and early 2010. Nationally, sales are down 6 percent and the average price of a home has decreased 16 percent from the same time last year. The differences between east and west Sussex County are reflected in the current real-estate market. The average selling price has been more than $443,000 on homes sold in eastern Sussex and just over $196,000 on the western side. The 1,409 units sold so far this year add up to nearly $476 million, which compares to $379 million at the same time in 2009. Million-dollar homes in the resort areas account for 4 percent of sales in Sussex County. Currently, there are 5,230 residential homes, 41 farms and 2,659 lots and parcels available. On the commercial side, there are 134 leases and 404 properties for sale. Bramhall said one of the major concerns, shared by realtors and the county, is the rate of foreclosures. With national foreclosure rates at all-

time highs, increasing 16 percent over the same time last year, county rates are also increasing. The average number of scheduled sheriff sales for foreclosed homes has increased from 60 to 70 per month last year to nearly 90 each month this year, said Tina Timmons, the county’s sheriff sale deputy. Of that total, about half are sold and half are stayed or postponed. Timmons said there are between 600 and 700 sales pending to get on the monthly schedule. The association has worked with the county to provide foreclosure workshops and is also working on an employer-assisted housing program to find affordable homes for workers. She said the association is also willing to provide technical assistance to county officials as they investigate an adequate public facilities ordinance. County Council President Vance Phillips of Laurel, a former realtor, thanked the association for decorating the tables with large centerpieces containing the letter R, which he interpreted as standing for Republican, not realtor. “I’ve been part of this for many years,” he said. “You all do a professional job and do a great job of policing yourselves. I thank you for your professional work.”
Fundraiser to help Hudsons
The September 23 event at Waterman’s Seafood Restaurant near Ocean City to raise money for the Alan and Kristin Hudson legal fund is sold out. Organizers are considering future events, including larger sites. Donations for the legal fund can be made to the Worcester County Landowners Association and mailed to: Lee Richardson, 7494 Richardson Rd., Willards, MD 21874. A legal defense fund has been established to help the Alan and Kristin Hudson family of near Berlin, Md., deal with huge expected legal bills as they defend themselves in federal court against allegations that they violated the Clean Water Act. Through the Worcester County Landowners Association, persons can make donations to help the Hudsons with their legal expenses. With the assistance of the taxpayer supported University of Maryland Environmental Law Clinic, the New York-based Waterkeeper Alliance has launched legal action against Mr. and Mrs. Hudson for alleged violations of the federal Clean Water Act. Unlike the New York-based Waterkeeper Alliance, no Maryland taxpayersupported legal clinic is helping Mr. and Mrs. Hudson. To assist them pay their anticipated legal bills, the Worcester County Landowners Association has established a fund to accept donations of all sizes. Coordinating this effort is Lee Richardson who can be reached at 410-4302016.

Screening Assistance Program Seaford Night Out activities replaced her fears with hope include DNA archiving card With no insurance, no money, and nowhere else to turn, Tricia Bailey also thought there was no hope. The 34-year-old Dover woman discovered a suspicious lump in her left breast in April 2010, but could not afford a doctor’s visit. She was unemployed, had no insurance coverage, and feared her doctor’s bill more than she feared her potential diagnosis. But then, Bailey found out about Bayhealth Cancer Institute Cancer Screening Assistance Program. Bayhealth’s Cancer Screening Assistance Program (CSAP) provides free breast imaging for uninsured or underinsured women, and is funded in part by Bayhealth’s annual Go Pink! Health Fair. Thanks to the Bayhealth Cancer Screening Assistance Program, Tricia Bailey was able to receive a breast ultrasound and she was subsequently enrolled in the state’s Screening for Life program for her ultrasound-guided biopsy - all at no cost to Bailey. “If they didn’t have this program, I have no idea what would’ve happened to me. I don’t know what I would have done,” said Bailey. She says the initial ultrasound confirmed the presence of three lumps in her left breast. The biopsy confirmed that the masses were cancerous. While the tumors were diagnosed as Stage 3, it was still not too late to receive treatment. Bailey underwent a double mastectomy at Bayhealth, and is currently receiving weekly chemotherapy followed by radiation therapy and targeted therapy for up to a year. Bayhealth’s Cancer Care Coordinator was able to get Bailey enrolled in the Delaware Cancer Treatment Program, which will pay for all of her treatment related expenses for two years. Bailey can count among her blessings the annual Bayhealth Go Pink! Health Fair. Proceeds from Go Pink! not only help fund the free breast imaging programs at Bayhealth, but also benefit the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. By purchasing a Go Pink! T-shirt or polo shirt, supporters can help those who otherwise could not receive care. The Fifth Annual Go Pink! Health

Sight and Sound artist Karen Knight surrounds herself by the Delmarva Christian High School players. Knight dedicated two days in August to rehearse with the students. She will return in October for a few dress rehearsals as well as a performance for a Christian School Rally to be held at DCHS before the final performance.
DCHS story comes to life High School students will give testimony to the importance of a Christ-based education during a powerful presentation at Delmarva Christian High School’s annual fundraising banquet next month. Nationally-known Christian dramatist and concert artist Karen Knight has written a play specifically about the role and influence of DCHS on a mother, her son and his peers, to be performed by students at the school on the evening of Oct. 7. Tickets to the banquet are now available. The Ninth Annual Setting the Standard Banquet serves as the school’s most important fundraiser. Well-known banquet speakers in the past have included pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, major league pitcher and cancer survivor Dave Dravecky, and national columnist Cal Thomas. This year’s fundraising goal of $250,000 will be used for student scholarships to the award-winning Christian high
school. Fifteen performing arts students will put on the production under the guidance of Knight and Performing Arts teacher Jonathan Douglas. Knight, who wrote Royal Faces, directs, with the assistance of Douglas, the one-hour musical and dramatic testimony. A concert artist, dramatist and speaker, Knight is best known for her performances at Sight and Sound’s Millennium Theater where she has portrayed Mrs. Noah in the Theater’s renowned production, Noah, The Musical; Elizabeth in The Miracle of Christmas; Mary, the mother of Christ, in Behold The Lamb; and the Governess Chisleu in Daniel. Royal Faces will dramatize the relationship of a mother and her son, focusing on the high school years when children form values that last a lifetime. To reserve a seat, call the school at 856-4040.
Cain attends Girls State Assembly
Molly Cain, a senior at Seafod High School, with Governor Jack Markell.
Molly Cain, the Delaware Girls State Representative from Seaford High School, was elected governor by her peers for the 2010 Delaware Girls State Assembly. Girls State, sponsored by the American Legion, was held at Wesley College in Dover from June 20-24. As governor, Molly was responsible for leadership of her citizens and spent a day accompanying Governor Jack Markell as he performed his various duties. Molly was also Governor Markell’s honored guest at a luncheon held at Woodburn, the Governor’s Mansion. Each summer, the American Legion Auxiliary Girls State Program has provided High School juniors across the
country the opportunity to participate in a hands-on citizenship training program for over 60 years. These young ladies learn government by actually creating a mythical state through the election of public officials on local, county, and state levels and then by carrying out the duties of these respective offices. Molly is now a senior at Seaford High School participating in a variety of activities that enhance her leadership abilities. In addition to serving as a student member of the Seaford Board of Education, she plays field hockey, is a distinguished member of the Honor Society, Key Club and Student Government.

Nemours’ campaign helps kids By Ronald MacArthur
Sussex County is setting the pace in the battle against childhood obesity. While the obesity rate is rising in other areas of the region, the rate has dropped 2.3 percent in Sussex, said John Hollis of Seaford, director of community relations for Nemours Health and Prevention Services. He told members of the Sussex County Council at a recent meeting that Nemours began a serious campaign to reverse the growing trend of overweight children by offering programs promoting a healthy lifestyle. Those programs in Sussex County are starting to pay dividends. As a result of the health risks associated with childhood obesity, the Center for Disease Control predicts the current generation of children may be the first ever to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. In a 2006 Nemours’ survey, the majority of Delaware parents consider poor nutrition, a lack of exercise and too many children being overweight and obese to be serious problems, on a par with cigarette smoking, accidents and drug and alcohol abuse. Moreover, the majority of parents realize that obesity among the state’s children and teens is an ongoing problem. In addition, parents believe they should play the primary role in fighting childhood obesity. However, they also believe that other entities – including schools, healthcare providers, and those who market food and drinks to young people – have a role to play in fighting childhood obesity. Hollis said health care costs are the biggest drain on the state’s budget, costing $200 million. Obese children are more likely to need medical services and more likely to develop diseases such as diabetes into their teen and adult years, according to the Center for Disease Control. During the past 30 years, childhood obesity rates have more than tripled and adult rates have more than doubled. In 2006, about 37 percent of children in Delaware ages 2 to 17 were either overweight or obese, with the trend pointed upwards.
The Sussex Child Health Promotion Coalition, based in Seaford, is at the core of the campaign with 150 agencies, all Sussex County school districts and 225 individuals focused on one goal – to reduce the rate of childhood obesity by developing, promoting and implementing programs of healthy eating and active living. One of those programs, 5-2-1-Almost None, takes place throughout the state. The 5-2-1 Almost None program promotes five servings of fruits and vegetables, no more than two hours of screen time, one hour of physical activity and almost no sugary drinks per day. More than 100 childcare organizations have been trained to help promote healthy lifestyles. Food programs, such as the new Farm to School program, provide healthy nutrition alternatives to families and children at school and home. The coalition has planned community walks, handed out grants, provided health screenings to children and adults, set up a system of food distribution to more than 6,000 county residents, distributed more than 2,500 coats in winter, provided trainings to youth workers and held more than 15 events throughout the county. The coalition has a Healthy Kids Day for fourth-graders each year at Trap Pond State Park and helps coordinate Healthy Kids Day at the Delaware State Fair. The group’s first Shore Fun Camp for teens with weight issues took place this summer at Cape Henlopen State Park. “Sussex County is the model, and soon to be a national model,” Hollis said. “It’s been wildly successful.” Hollis presented each council member with a plaque to show Nemours’ appreciation for the county’s support. “None of this would have been possible if the Sussex County Council did not endorse healthy eating and active lifestyles,” he said. “We are not done yet,” Hollis said. “Four years from now, if this momentum continues, we will be well on our way to Sussex County’s children being the healthiest in the nation.”

Family friendly Coast Day planned for Lewes Coast Day has become a cherished Delaware tradition by providing opportunities to experience the wonders of the ocean and the latest marine research in a fun, family-friendly format. This year’s event, to be held Sunday, Oct. 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., promises as much excitement as ever. A free event now in its 34th year, Coast Day is held rain or shine at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes. It is sponsored by the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE) and the Delaware Sea Grant College Program. “We look forward to Coast Day every year because it gives us the perfect opportunity to educate thousands of people about the importance of the marine and coastal environment and the research we’re doing related to it,” said Nancy Targett, CEOE dean and Delaware Sea Grant director. In keeping with this year’s theme, “Making the Most of Our Coast,” Targett will open the event with a special ceremony recognizing the winners of video and essay competitions for Delaware school kids on that topic. The ceremony also will include the dedication of signage for the Lewes campus’ new 2-megawatt wind turbine. Other activities focused on this year’s theme will be those located in the new Energy Tent and in Cannon Laboratory Room 104, which will inform visitors all
about alternative energy and the new wind turbine. Several of the day’s talks given by UD scientists and guest lecturers will cover topics including oil spills and the effects of climate change on Delaware Bay. Other fun activities for Coast Day guests will include touring ships in the harbor — UD’s 146-foot research vessel Hugh R. Sharp will be available — and seeing an underwater research robot in action. Visitors also will be able to tour the campus’ native plant garden and new demonstration rain garden. Throughout Coast Day, children of all ages will find something fun that captures their imagination. Activities for kids will include a treasure hunt that allows them to search for answers to questions about the environment as well as the opportunity to meet marine animals such as horseshoe crabs at the critter touch tanks. The schedule also includes plenty of attractions for seafood lovers. In addition to the beloved Crab Cake Cook-Off and Chowder Challenge competitions, visitors can attend seminars presenting innovative ways to prepare seafood, watch ice sculptures of marine animals being made, and purchase seafood. Whether they’re checking out the seafood events or reading the event program, visitors will notice that Coast Day organizers have made the event environmentally friendly. Plates, cups, napkins and utensils from the seafood areas will be composted for use on campus landscaping; bike racks

Entertainment Learn the art of Argentine Tango this weekend in Rehoboth Beach This month local residents have the opportunity to experience Argentine Tango, a dance that is fascinating to do and thrilling to watch. Instructors Lori Coyle-Magen and Eran Magen of Sangha Space will be in Rehoboth Sept. 17-19, offering weekend workshops in the art of Argentine Tango.

Argentine Tango is improvisational, with both partners telling the story of a relationship that is encompassed in each dance. It is characterized by a close hold, and movement is stealthy and cat-like and has a distinctive staccato feel and dramatic attitude.
Lori and Eran are part of growing group of tango enthusiasts from the greater Philadelphia area. Yvonne Cimo, a local dance instructor and director of Dance Moves and Manners, will sponsor the Argentine Tango Weekend Workshops Intensives the third weekend of September, October and November. Cimo hopes to find more tango enthusiasts who will come together to build a ‘Tango Colony’ of dancers here in lower Delaware and Maryland.

Seaford varsity football team opens season with home win By Lynn Schofer
The Seaford High School varsity football opened the 2010 season last Friday night at home against the Delaware Military Academy Seahawks. Coach Darnell Savage prepared his young offense for the strong defense that includes seniors John and James Coffiey. “The team has been working hard and we know the areas that need to improve. This team is determined,” said Savage. Seaford held the line and, after an interception in the fourth quarter by Danny Adamson, Seaford came away with a 20-8 win. In the first quarter, Seaford moved the ball using Raheem Cannon and Andre Washington, who ran the ball past midfield for a first down. Seaford would threaten to score but a fumble with 5:45 left in the first quarter gave Delaware Military Academy possession. Seaford’s defense didn’t waste anytime as Aquarius White forced the Seahawks to fumble the ball right back to the Blue Jays. Seaford quarterback Shaquill Turnage put the ball in the air and White pulled it in for a first down at the two yard line. Seaford scored on a run by Washington
and Turnage ran the ball into the end zone for the extra two points. Leading, 8-0, Seaford got the ball back but put themselves in a third and 15 position after a penalty, but then got the first down on a pass interference call against the Seahawks. In the second quarter, Seaford’s Dominique Horsey and Jamil Moore carried the ball for Blue Jay first downs, but a personal foul pushed the ball back to the 35 yard line. Seaford would eventually fumble the ball away with 3:58 left in the half. Seaford defense Myron Hayes gave the Blue Jays one more chance to score before halftime when he intercepted a pass with 51 seconds to go. The Blue Jays were not able to score and led the game, 8-0, at half time. Coach Savage wasn’t too concerned about the penalty flags, “Opening night jitters, I know they will work it out.” Seaford opened the second half running the ball and Cannon gave the Blue Jays another first down, but a penalty flag would push the team back. Later in the quarter Seaford took possession on the three yard line and the Seahawk defense took down the Blue Jays for a safety. Continued on page 41

Woodbridge varsity football team earns 35-20 win in opener The Woodbridge varsity football team opened the season with a 35-20 win over Dickinson last Friday night. The Raiders took a 20-14 lead into the half after outscoring Dickinson, 14-8, in the second quarter. Woodbridge also scored nine unanswered points in the third quarter before each team put six points on the board in the fourth. In the first half, Lyn Deputy had a 35-yard fumble return for a touchdown, Trez Kane scored on a two-yard touchdown run and Brent Adams added the extra point, and Freddy Sample scored from one yard out with Adams booting his second extra point. In the second half, John Rivera-Rivas recovered a fumble and ran 55 yards for a touchdown. Marvin Morris added a safety and later scored on a 27-yard touchdown run to cap the scoring for the Raiders. Sample had 22 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown, Morris ran the ball eight times for 71 yards and a touchdown and also recorded five tackles including one for a safety.

MORNING STAR • SEPTEMBER 16 - 22, 2010 Seaford football continued
After a punt return to Seaford’s 44 yard line, Delaware Academy scored with 1:16 to go in the third quarter. After a missed extra point, the score was knotted at eight each. In the fourth quarter, fatigue and dehydration wore on the players and many fought off cramps. Seaford would prove to be the stronger of the two teams when the Blue Jays recovered a fumble on a bad snap. Cannon pulled in another first down for the Blue Jays and with the ball on the 12 yard line, Jamil Moore scored the touchdown.
Seaford would force two more fumbles and an interception that put six more points on the board for Seaford. With less than one minute to go it only took a knee to finish the game and give the Blue jays a 20-8 victory. After the game Coach Savage said they knew if they could keep the ball in Seaford hands, they would win the game, “I told the boys to dig deep and keep the Seahawk defense on the field.” Seaford will prepare to go on the road to Appoquinimink, who defeated the Blue Jays 31-20 last year. Savage said, “Tonight is a good win, but it is over. We now will focus on next week’s game and get ready to play.”

Seaford field hockey team improves to 2-0 with win in OT By Mike McClure The Seaford varsity field hockey team topped Dover, 1-0, in overtime on Tuesday to move to 1-0 in the Henlopen Conference and 2-0 overall. Julia Tobin netted the gamewinner on a penalty stroke with 8:27 left in overtime. “It feels great. I wish we could have done it in the regular time,” said Seaford head coach Alison Venables. Venables said she was pleased with her team’s play in the first half and in overtime, but felt that her team was outplayed in the second half. The Blue Jays held a 5-4 edge in shots in the scoreless first half while the Senators had a 4-0 advantage in corners. Seaford went the entire game without getting a corner, something Venables said has never happened for one of her teams in her years of coaching. The Senators had six more corners in the second half, but neither team could net a goal. Seaford’s Bailey Hoch and Tobin each had shots go wide of the cage. Seaford came out with aggressive play in the seven-on-seven overtime period and that play paid off when DeMott drew the penalty stroke. Tobin took the shot and lifted the ball past the Senator goalie for the win. “It says a lot that they have the endurance and they played a smart game in overtime,” Venables said of her team’s overtime win.

Smooth sailing for H. J. Bunting in Delaware Modifieds By Charlie Brown H.J. Bunting has had more than his share of ups and downs this season but everything went smoothly for once as he took the lead on lap four and controlled the rest of the 25-lap NAPA Big Block Modified feature Saturday night at the Delaware International Speedway. Scott VanGorder set the early pace with Beau Wilkins giving chase from second. Bunting started in the fourth spot and powered into second on lap three. He completed his charge to the front on the next laps as he pulled past VanGorder. The first yellow was out one lap later as Drew Simmons, who was making his first start of the season, slowed to a stop. Bunting remained in command on the restart as Brad Trice maneuvered into second . At the halfway sign the top five were Bunting, Trice, Howard O’Neal, Matt Jester and VanGorder. The second caution was out at this point for a two car tangle in the turn. Jester got a good run on the restart and moved by O’Neal for third. The final yellow would fly on lap 16 when C.J. Faison’s car locked up and came to a stop at the top of the second turn. Trice would chase Bunting the rest of the distance but Bunting was able to maintain a comfortable lead and post his fourth win of the season. “We had a great starting spot and it makes it easy and it actually stayed together for 25 laps and it all worked out,” said Bunting. Trice finished in the second spot with Jester third. Fourth went to O’Neal with Joseph Watson coming on strong in the closing laps to finish in fifth. Point leader Kenny Brightbill finished in the sixth spot and the point battle between he and Jester will go down to the final race in two weeks. Heats were won by Trice and O’Neal. It took two attempts before the first lap of the 15-lap AC Delco TSS Modified feature was in the books. Kyle Fuller led from the pole looking for his second straight win with Matt Hawkins and Joseph Tracy battling for second. Cautions in the early laps kept the field tightly bunched. Fuller remained smooth in the lead with Tracy working by Hawkins for second just before halfway. By lap nine the front pair were running side by side with Fuller in the high groove and Tracy on the bottom. Tracy edged out front to lead lap ten but on the next circuit Fuller was back on top. The pair continued to run side by side until the final lap when Tracy was able to gain the advantage and post his fourth win of the season. With the victory Tracy guaranteed himself his first track championship. Fuller finished in the second spot with Hawkins holding on to third. Fourth went to Scott Calhoun and Justin Griffith rounded out the top five. Fast time in qualifying was set by Brandon Perdue. Jim Pride, Jr. jumped out front on the first lap of the 12-lap Vintage Stock Car feature and ran uncontested the remainder of the distance for his second win of the season. Charles Moore held off the challenges of Mark Williams for second. Chuck Tucker was able to get by Williams with two laps to go to finish in third with Williams fourth and Rick Loveland, Jr. fifth. Freddy Brightbill took a terrifying series of flips down the front straight wall in the event but was not injured. This Saturday night there will be no racing at the speedway as action moves to the adjacent U.S. 13 Dragway for the three day NHRA Northeast Division 1 Bracket finals. Racing returns in two weeks with the United Racing Company making its sixth and final appearance of the season along with the five weekly divisions. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 7 p.m.

National Federation of State High School Association offers free “Concussion in Sports” course With the high school football season underway, coaches, parents, players and officials are encouraged to complete the Concussion in Sports– What You Need to Know online course offered free of charge by the Indianapolis-based National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). To date, more than 47,000 persons have registered and completed the NFHS Coach Education course available at www.nfhslearn.com. Concussion in Sports provides a guide to understanding, recognizing and properly managing concussions in high school sports. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has endorsed the course and provided many useful resources. “Although coaches, parents and players involved with football will certainly benefit from Concussion in Sports, research shows that concussions occur in other sports as well,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “With more than 7? million young people involved in high school sports, minimizing the risk of injury is extremely important. The course is a ‘must do’ for anyone associated with high school sports.” The 20-minute online course is designed to highlight the importance of recognizing and responding to sports-related concussions, which pose a particularly high risk for adolescents. The course is hosted by Michael Koester, M.D., chair of the NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) and director of the Sports Concussion Program at the Slocum Center for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Eugene, Oregon. Individuals have access to the course and printable resources, including a parent’s guide to concussion in sports, a coach’s guide, an
athlete fact sheet and materials for schools to implement a protocol for concussion treatment. According to the 2009-10 High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study, more than 140,000 high school athletes suffer a concussion each year. The study, conducted by Dawn Comstock, Ph.D., director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, also indicated that the incidence rate for concussion is highest among football players. The next two highest rates among boys sports are ice hockey and lacrosse. In girls sports, the incidence rate is highest in soccer, gymnastics and lacrosse. In addition to education courses, the NFHS has been the leader in establishing playing rules to deal with concussions. In 2008, the SMAC advocated that a concussed athlete must be removed from play and not allowed to return to play on the same day. In 2009, the position was adopted by a leading group of sports concussion experts and the National Football League (NFL). For 2010-11, the NFHS implemented new guidelines for the management of a student exhibiting signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion. Based on the SMAC, these guidelines have been included in all NFHS rules books for the 2010-11 season. The language reads: “Any athlete who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion, such as loss of consciousness, headaches, dizziness, confusion or balance problems, shall be immediately removed from the contest and shall not return to play until cleared by an appropriate healthcare professional.”

Daniels had been ejected from her vehicle and was located on the ground approximately 53 feet away from the Tahoe in the parking lot of an area business. Investigators have not been able to interview Daniels, however, they believe she may have fallen asleep, drifted into the median of Sussex Highway, then overcorrected back onto the roadway before overturning her vehicle. Delaware State Police Aviation was summoned to the scene and a search was conducted because of a car seat found in the vehicle unattended. Delaware State Police were able to contact family members who verified that a child was not in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Daniels is in critical condition at Christiana Hospital with a closed head injury. Delaware State Police is continuing their investigation. Alcohol use is unknown. Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.

Police seek name of Good Samaritan Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit seeks assistance in locating a second Good Samaritan that was present at the fatal crash which occurred at the intersections of Redden Road and Chaplin’s Chapel Road east of Bridgeville, on Aug. 29. The crash occurred when a Greenwood woman, who was driving a Ford Explorer, ran through a stop sign and was struck by a Mercury Milan. The driver of the Milan, a Georgetown man, was killed and his two passengers were critically injured. The driver of the Ford Explorer and her two children were also injured. State Police learned from the first Good Samaritan that when he approached the Ford Explorer a second Good Samaritan, an unidentified white male, was already
rendering assistance. The identified Good Samaritan then heard screams coming from the second vehicle, a 2007 Mercury Milan, so he responded and began pulling occupants from this vehicle. Delaware State Police has not had the unidentified Good Samaritan come forward. State Police investigators are interested in interviewing the second Good Samaritan for investigative purposes. State Police will also provide victim services to the Good Samaritan which is rendered to people involved in traumatic events. State Police request the Good Samaritan contact Delaware State Police Troop 7 at 644-5020, ext. 119.

Storage building catches fire
The Delaware State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a structure fire that occurred on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 7:13 p.m., on the 6400 block of Lucky Lane in Laurel. The Laurel Fire Department, assisted by Delmar, Blades and Sharptown, responded to the scene. Upon arrival, they encountered heavy fire in a 30’ x 35’ storage building. No injuries were reported. Damages have been estimated at approximately $30,000. State Fire Marshal Investigators are still investigating the origin and cause of the fire.
Sex offender turns violent
On Sept. 8, around 3 p.m., Delaware State Police responded to the unit block of Richard Boulevard, Dover, for a disorderly complaint, which turned violent. Delaware State Police contacted a 25-year-old Church Hill, Md. woman and learned she was confronted by Gary Biron of Dover, as she was distributing pamphlets regarding his Sex Offender status. Biron and the woman know each other because Biron dates the victim’s mother and the victim was upset over an unknown altercation between Biron and her mother. The victim was leaving the pamphlets, printed from the state’s public Sex Offenders website, in Biron’s neighbors mailboxes. The pamphlet displayed Biron’s status as a Tier III High Risk Sex Offender. The altercation escalated with Biron grabbing a pamphlet out of the victim’s hand and threatening to kill the victim. Biron next punched the victim in the face with his fist. Biron also is alleged to have been brandishing a wrench in his other hand at the time of the physical altercation.
The victim attempted to call 911; however, Biron took the victim’s cellular phone and threw it to the ground causing damage to it. The victim was able to drive away from the scene at which time she dialed 911 for emergency assistance. Troopers then attempted to make contact with Biron at his residence to place him under arrest. Troopers contacted Biron at the front of his residence and attempted to take him into custody. Biron turned and ran back into his residence with two troopers giving chase. As the first trooper attempted to take Biron into custody, Biron swung and narrowly missed striking the trooper. Biron next picked up a wooden chair and began to swing it at the first trooper and second trooper, both of Troop 3. The chair struck the second trooper on the arm and chest. The second trooper sustained a minor bruise, however, did not require medical treatment. The second trooper was then able to take the chair away from Biron and he was then placed in handcuffs. Biron was taken to Delaware State Police Troop 3, Woodside and charged with aggravated menacing, resisting arrest, two counts offensive touching of a law enforcement officer, terroristic threatening, third degree assault, two counts of menacing, criminal mischief and malicious interference with making a 911 cal1. Biron was released after posting $4,000 secured bond through a bail bonds company.
Woman duct taped to wheelchair
On Sept. 13 at 1:27 p.m., Delaware State Police investigated a home invasion in Sussex West mobile home park in Lewes. State troopers went to a residence on Whitehaven Way and were confronted by a 53-year-old victim who was shaken about the ordeal. The incident began on Sept. 12 around 10 p.m. at the home of the 53-year-old Lewes woman. The 53-year-old and her 36-year-old stepson were walking from the kitchen to the garage to smoke cigarettes. As the victim approached the door, it suddenly burst open and the suspects entered pushing the victims to the floor. The victims were confronted at gunpoint and their hands and feet were duct taped. The 53-year-old female was duct taped to a wheelchair and then placed in a closet. The 36-year-old was then forced to perform errands for the suspects. He was also forced to use the 53-year-old victim’s credit card at area businesses and bank ATM machines. The victim was told not to notify the police or the woman would be killed. The 36-year-old was also forced to pawn a Sanyo television and two Sony speakers. Delaware State Police recovered these items from the pawn shop. On Monday, Sept. 13, at 1:27 p.m., the third victim, a 24-year-old Lewes man went to the residence to check on the victims. The 24-year-old man knocked on the door and yelled into the window to get the other victim’s attention. When he did not receive an answer, he entered the residence and was confronted by a suspect described as 5’8” to 5’9”, muscular build,
black hair, Asian facial features, wearing tan khakis and a muscle shirt and mask. The suspect pointed a gun at the victim and a struggle ensued. The suspect struck the 24-year-old several times on the head with the handgun. The Lewes man was able to escape the assault and fled to a nearby residence for help. As Troop 7 units arrived, they were met by the 53-year-old female victim, who had freed herself running from her residence. The suspects are believed to have fled after assaulting the 24-year-old man and prior to police arrival. The 53 and 36-year-old victims sustained abrasions to the knee and ankle from being duct taped. The 24-year-old victim sustained a head laceration that required stitches. Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to call investigators at 856-5850, ext. 209 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
Woman charged in purse theft
On Sept. 11 at 2 p.m., Seaford Police responded to Walmart in Seaford for a reported purse theft. According to the victim, an 88-year-old Federalsburg, Md. woman, her purse was taken from her shopping cart while shopping inside the store. Officers were able to obtain a description of the defendant, Eldine Etienne, 23, of Laurel, from witnesses and a vehicle description from store surveillance. Based on the vehicle description, officers linked Etienne to the crime and obtained arrest warrants. On Sept. 12, officers observed Etienne’s vehicle in the area of Front and Poplar Streets in Seaford. Etienne was taken into custody and transported to the Seaford Police Department for processing and arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court #2. Charges include theft $1,500 or greater and victim 62 years of age or older. Etienne was committed to the Department of Corrections in Georgetown in lieu of $3,000 cash bond pending a preliminary hearing in the Court of Common Pleas in Georgetown.
Police search for Good Samaritans
Delaware State Police have identified the second Good Samaritan associated with the fatal crash which occurred at the intersections of Redden Road and Chaplin’s Chapel Road, east of Bridgeville, at the end of August. As a result of the interview with the second Good Samaritan, Delaware State Police discovered that there are two additional Good Samaritans who were involved with assisting in the extrication of victims from burning vehicles. The third Good Samaritan is a Hispanic male operating a Green minivan with Delaware registration. The fourth Good Samaritan is a white female, possibly a nurse. All of the Good Samaritans assisted in saving five lives by courageously pulling them from burning vehicles to safety. The victims would like to thank these heroes. In addition, they can also provide investigators with additional details Continued to page 56

Woman arrested for fraud
On Thursday, Sept. 9, Tia A. Tucker, 25, of Bridgeville, was arrested and processed at Delaware State Police Troop 5 for identity and possession of prescription drug by fraud. The fraud occurred at the Walgreen’s Pharmacy in Bridgeville when Tucker filled a prescription for Oxycodone pills in the name of a 25-year-old male victim. On Wednesday, Sept. 8, police also investigated a phone harassment complaint involving Tucker and the same 25-yearold male victim. Tucker is alleged to have called the victim six times after being told not to by the victim. Tucker was also charged with harassment. She was presented before a Magistrate Judge and given a $3,100 secured bond. She posted bond and was later released.
Teens charged in crime spree
On Thursday, Sept. 9, Delaware State Police arrested two Seaford teens for crimes committed on Snug Harbor Drive in Seaford on Sept. 3. Delaware State Police learned that early Friday morning, Sept. 3, a 15-year-old male and a 14-year-old male, both of Seaford, were riding bicycles on Snug Harbor Drive. The two juveniles trespassed onto the victim’s property and attempted to steal his 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The victim left the doors to the truck unsecured and a key inside. The two juveniles were unsuccessful in their theft attempt because the key was only to unlock the vehicle doors. They are alleged to have caused damage to the rear of the victim’s bumper which was attached to a boat trailer. Two bikes that the juveniles were riding were located on the victim’s property. Delaware State Police next responded to a report of a 2007 Toyota Tundra being found at the intersection of Eskridge Road and Middleford Road, Seaford. The vehicle was found with the driver’s door open and keys in the ignition. The vehicle apparently ran out of gas. The Toyota was discovered stolen from another residence on Snug Harbor Drive. Extensive damage to the brakes, tires, front grill and undercarriage to the Toyota was found. The two juveniles also took an undisclosed amount of money from the inside of the Toyota. They were able to steal the vehicle because the keys were left inside the truck and the doors unlocked. Delaware State Police were also advised of a domestic complaint involving the 14-year-old. Both juveniles were being disorderly at the residence and fled prior to police arrival. As the suspects fled the residence on Maury Avenue, Seaford, they dropped a pipe commonly used to ingest marijuana. Troopers checked the area and located the 15-year-old on Tharp Road riding a bicycle and he was taken into custody. While troopers were processing the 15-year-old, they received a call from a victim on Maury Avenue reporting a person passed out in his gazebo. Troopers arrived on scene and placed the second sus-
pect, the 14-year-old juvenile, under arrest. Both juveniles were arrested for consumption and possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia and released. Later, Delaware State Police were able to link both juveniles to the theft and attempted theft of a motor vehicle complaint that occurred on Sept. 3, on Snug Harbor Drive. They were then charged with theft of a motor vehicle, attempted theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of second degree conspiracy, two counts of theft under $1,000, two counts of second degree criminal trespassing and criminal mischief under $1,000. They were released to the custody of their parents.
Police arrest child predator
On Aug. 10, the Delaware Child Predator Task Force, with uniformed patrol officers and detectives of the Milford Police Department, executed a search warrant at 902 SE Front St., Milford. The search warrant was a result of an online undercover investigation that was initiated by the Pennsylvania Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. When Pennsylvania authorities determined that images of child sexual exploitation were linked to a computer in Delaware, they referred the case to the Delaware Child Predator Task Force. Detectives seized computers and other digital media at the home of Sean J. Kennedy, 19, of Milford. Kennedy was arrested by Milford Police and charged with

Three car crash in Bridgeville
Delaware State Police are investigating a crash that sent a Maryland man to the hospital. The crash occurred when Paul A. Kerris, 43, of Columbia, Md., was traveling east on Rt. 404 near Progress School Road, north of Bridgeville, and was attempting to pass vehicles heading in the same direction. Kerris pulled into the oncoming lane into the path of Roseanne Johnson, 22, of Denton, Md. and Alexander Owens, 70, of Federalsburg, Md., who were both traveling west on Rt. 404. Johnson and Owens swerved to the right to avoid a collision. Kerris’ vehicle sideswiped both cars prior to all three cars driving off the road. Kerris was taken to Nanticoke Hospital near Seaford where he was treated for injuries sustained in the crash. All operators were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Pedestrian hit and run accident
On Sunday morning, Sept. 12, Delaware State Police responded to a crash involving a pedestrian on Halltown Road,
The passing of Labor Day marked the traditional end of the summer driving season and as motorists return to work and school routines, gas prices continue to hold stable. Labor Day weekend saw the lowest gasoline prices of the summer and those prices continued post-Labor Day.

Troopers were advised by Harding that she was walking from the 400 block of Coldspring Place, Dover and was heading to Greenwood. Harding advised she was walking along the roadway when she was struck by an unknown type of vehicle possibly white in color. Harding was unable to provide any additional details regarding the crash. Harding, who was transported to Kent General Hospital initially, has since been taken to Christian Hospital due to multiple injuries. Harding is being treated for a dislocated knee, torn tendons/ligaments, head and abdomen laceration. She is listed in fair condition. A Good Samaritan stopped as he was traveling on Halltown Road after seeing what he thought to be a body lying in the roadway. When the Good Samaritan turned around he observed Harding lying on the shoulder next to the roadway. The Good Samaritan then called 911.

Patriots of Heritage Shores draws enthusiastic crowd
By John Barr
The sound of the bagpipe echoed throughout the clubhouse at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. Piper Randy Welch from Easton, Md., welcomed the standing room only residents and guests to a ceremony commemorating the ninth anniversary of Patriot Day. Patriot Day was established right after 9/11 by the United States Congress to honor the military, police, firefighters and Emergency Medical personnel who risk their lives daily to protect ours. The feature presentation of the day was the performance of the Marine ROTC Detachment from Woodbridge High School under the leadership of 1st Sgt. (Ret) David W. Grinstead Sr., United States Marine Corp. “I’m very proud of all of the members. They work many hours all year round practicing drill and ceremony and we are honored to perform in front of the public,” said Grinstead. Their performance of the MIA/POW missing service member ceremony captivated the audience. The cadets were led by David Grinstead Jr. The National Anthem and a medley featuring America the Beautiful was performed by Command Sergeant Major (Ret) Greg Fuller, U.S. Army. As an added attraction, a videotaped performance of the entire TAPS song was presented. The trumpet solo was performed in 2008 by Dutch teenager Milissa Venema. Presentations were made by the new Bridgeville Police Chief Robert Long who recounted his experiences while serving with the New Jersey Army National Guard
after 9/11. It was especially difficult for him to recall events he witnessed at the Fresh Kill landfill on Staten Island where all of the debris from the Twin Towers was taken and sorted through. Harbey Liebermann, a former Staten Island resident who now resides in Heritage Shores, recounted his experiences with me. “I was driving on the highway headed away from New York City when fire companies from all over Staten Island passed me going towards the city,” he said. “I knew many of their members, some of whom didn’t make it home that night,” he added. Harvey also owned an apartment two blocks from the Towers. After many tries he was allowed to inspect it to determine if it had suffered any damage. To get to the building, he recalls wading through dust that was a few inches deep. Other remarks were made by Jim Cina, representing the Bridgeville Fire Fighters. Jim talked about the dedication of his fellow members and introduced Ken McIlvain who has spent over 50 years as a volunteer fire fighter and is still active. The final speaker was Robert Stuart, director of the Sussex County EMS. He introduced three of his members in attendance and recalled the number of class hours volunteers must sit through to qualify as an EMS member. He also talked about the 30,000 calls his people receive annually. After the closing prayer by Heritage Shores resident the Rev. Tom Connar, the piper played “Amazing Grace” to conclude the ceremony and “Going Home” as he left the ballroom. God Bless America.

Nanticoke River Arts’ Garden Party Saturday By Lynn R. Parks For the fourth year, Dennis Russell, owner of Act II Florist in downtown Seaford, will open his back yard for Nanticoke River Arts’ annual Garden Party. The party will be this Saturday afternoon (September 18) and will feature about a dozen artists displaying their works. “I just want to give artists in the area a venue to get together and show their work,” said Russell, who has lived in the same building in which his flower shop is located for 20 years. His back yard is a mixture of tall mature trees that were there when he bought the double lot and undergrowth, including shrubs, ferns, perennials and annuals, that he has planted. There’s even a stand of flamingoes — plastic, but still eye-catching. “This is a really pretty setting,” said Tammy Kearney with the arts council. “The garden party will be a great way to spend the afternoon.” Kearney, who paints watercolors, will be among the artists who will display their work. While her works will be for sale, she said that is not her primary reason for being there. “I just like how the event is open to the public and how everyone can come and enjoy art,” she said. Christina Darby is a friend of the arts council and an organizer of the Garden Party. She said that the purpose of the event is to give people in western Sussex County a chance to know artists living and working in the area. “We don’t have to drive over to the beach to see art,” she said. “We have artists in our area and we just want people to come out and look at what they are producing.”
And she agrees with Kearney that the main purpose of the party is not to push art that is for sale, but rather “just for the pleasure of the experience.” She adds, “Our primary reason for doing this is for the love of art.” Nanticoke River Arts was formed in April 2007 and has about 25 members now. Cost to join is $10 for a student, $15 for a friend and $20 for an artist. A couple, both of whom are artists, can join for $30. In addition to Riverfest and the Garden Party, members participate in Art in the Park, Heritage Days at the Ross Plantation and the annual craft show at Delaware Technical and Community College. They also judge the annual Seaford School District art show and teach classes at the Seaford Library and Cultural Center. The council’s Garden Party was first held four years ago, after Russell invited members of the arts council to set up a booth in his back yard during Seaford’s annual Riverfest. “It was really hot and I told them they could set up in the yard, in the shade,” he said. “After Riverfest, they came to me and said that they wanted to have a show here in the fall.” That first show was open by invitation only. Since then, the Garden Party has been open to the public. Last year, about 80 people attended. In addition to the art, this year’s Garden Party will include refreshments provided by members of the arts council. Wine for a tasting will be provided by Liquid Assets. There will also be music. John Kisela from near Laurel will play the dulcimer and Dan Parsons will play the guitar. Admission to the Garden Party is free. For additional details, visit the Nanticoke River Arts page on Facebook.
MORNING STAR • SepTeMbeR 16 - 22, 2010
I don’t think we’ll ever know the true death toll from tasers because there has been so much secrecy surrounding their use.
Use of tasers by police should be suspended I just read with great interest a story about Delmar’s recent updating of its taser policy. Having spent over two years researching tasers, I believe their use should be suspended and their deployment carefully reevaluated. I further suggest that the decision to incorporate tasers into the State’s cache of weapons was a flawed decision because it was based on flawed data. The decision to spend taxpayer dollars to purchase and deploy these weapons was based on data collected and disseminated by, and safety claims made by, the device’s manufacturer, which obviously stands to gain by claiming their devices are safe. The cities of Memphis, San Francisco and Las Vegas have recently banned lawenforcement use of tasers for good reason: Tasers are dangerous, their effects are unpredictable and they too often become unintended deadly weapons. Tasers have caused these cities, and many other municipalities and agencies, to pay out large sums of money to injured victims and the families of deceased victims. In May 2010, Taser International, itself, issued an updated training bulletin with warnings that we should never accept from a weapon claimed to be safe. In 2009, an independent study of taser use in over 50 California agencies by Dr. Byron Lee and others concluded that, although tasers are considered a safer alternative to firearms by some, they were actually associated with a substantial increase in in-custody sudden deaths when first deployed, they brought no decrease in firearm deaths and there was no long-term decrease in serious officer injuries. (During the first year of use in the cities studied, the rate of in-custody deaths increased 6.4 fold, firearm deaths increased

2.3 fold. There was no change in officer injuries compared to the average 5 years prior to using tasers.) Growing numbers of taser deaths and injuries and alarming reports of illegal taser-torture pain compliance tactics against citizens in the US prompted Amnesty International to recommend immediately suspending the use of tasers and stun guns pending further safety research, or limiting their use to situations where officers would otherwise be justified in resorting to firearms. But still the vast majority of people who are tasered are unarmed and are not posing an immediate threat which would justify deadly force. Since 1999, over 500 North Americans have died immediately following taser use. Tasers are now killing an average of five people per month. And no one is counting those who die weeks or months after the fact. I don’t think we’ll ever know the true death toll from tasers because there has been so much secrecy surrounding their use. We only hear of the most obvious injuries and immediate deaths. And most unbelievably, when there is a death or serious injury, the current practice is for the taser user to send the internal data recorder and weapon to the manufacturer who, in turn, downloads the data and evaluates their own product to determine whether it malfunctioned. Simultaneously, a self-investigation is done by the law-enforcement agency, or a comrade-agency, which also interrogates the victim or family of the victim that they harmed or killed. They issue their statements of “the facts.” And that’s that. What an absurd practice! To learn the whole truth about tasers

we can not allow self-investigation to continue. Believing that the whole truth and meaniful statistics will only come from independent, citizens’ oversight, I suggest the following: • First, if they’re going to continue to be used, taser policies and procedures must be made public, reviewed and adapted to fit societal standards. • Second, agencies which use tasers must be compelled to provide the public they serve with instant, accurate and complete data on who has been tasered, how many times, where on their person, how long and why. There must be ongoing, open reporting. • Third, use-of-force information should always be included in press releases. Should we not know the means our peace officers are employing to enforce our laws, and what levels of force are routinely being used to enforce which laws? Why should this be secret? • Fourth, even if tasers are banned, ongoing follow-up must be conducted to track taser victims. This information must be gathered in order to learn what the true emotional, medical and social after-shocks are when one is taser-tortured. Obviously, this data cannot be collected by the taser users, deploying agencies, manufacturer or while the victim is still in custody and fearful of reprisals. Without accurate data, how can we be vigilant in overseeing what methods lawenforcement agencies are using to keep the peace and protect our property and our persons? I suggest everyone read Taser International’s latest Law Enforcement Warnings (found at www.Taser.com under the “Research” drop-down menu, click on “Legal”) Then, peruse these two websites: http://truthnottasers.blogspot.com/ and http://www.excited-delirium.com/. I think you’ll agree, after you look into it, especially in light of taser’s frequent failure rate, that there is no justification for continuing to allow tasers to be used except as a substitute for deadly force.

As their employers , we should vote them all out of office
I have been reading most of the editorials, listening to the Talking Heads, and watching the news coverage about the coming election. I do not believe any of them has hit the mark. There is a great groundswell, far beyond the Tea Parties, Conservative Fanat-
ics, and Liberal Pundits. No one really wants what is going on in Washington to continue. It is becoming increasingly clear that our legislators have lost touch with the general public. My naive hope was that these legislators do what is right for the country, not the special interest groups or themselves, I have been disappointed to say the least. For this midterm election, I propose that all incumbents who are running for re-election be voted out. In this manner the entire House of Representatives and one third of the Senate will be new. Yes we will elect some idiots and yes old time experience will be lacking, but can it be worse than what we have now? I would rather take my chances with new people than the cronyism that now exists. I don’t think just a change in majorities will amount to a hill of beans, we need a clean start. We are the employers, and our country is in trouble—it’s time for new management; the old guard needs to be swept aside. Fred Sponseller

Nevertheless the police conduct seatbelt checks and drinking-while-driving checks. I’m being harassed, and I don’t have anyone to go to for help, unlike the illegal aliens (immigrants). Woe is picked-on me! Jack Lucia

National Popular vote would decrease Delaware’s influence
The National Popular Vote for president initiative is gaining momentum. Five states - Maryland, Illinois, Washington, New Jersey and Hawaii - have already enacted laws binding their Electoral College electors to vote for the national popular vote winner, regardless of the outcome of the presidential vote in their state. You will notice that these states are among the most progressive in America. Democrats certainly don’t want a repeat of 2000, when Al Gore lost to George W. Bush, even though Gore won the popular vote by at least 300,000 votes. The concept of voting for president using a simple majority of votes cast nationwide is appealing and democratic. Supporters claim that more than 70% nationwide support the initiative, which is not surprising. The Electoral College is confusing to most. In simple terms, each state is allocated electors based on their representatives in the House of Representatives plus their two senators. Delaware has one representative and two senators, so we have three electors. The presidential candidate with the highest number of votes in the state receives Delaware’s three electoral votes. Supporters of the National Popular Vote argue that elections come down to a few battleground states such as Ohio, Florida or Virginia, so candidates limit their spending to just a few states where the
outcome is in doubt. The popular vote initiative has other problems. Politicians will just focus on major metropolitan areas where millions of votes can be bought. Financiers, such as George Soros, will spend hundreds of millions in major states while ignoring small states and rural populations. Many consider the Electoral College to be an antiquated system of electing a president. However, our founders recognized that a democracy could lead to a tyrannical government as onerous as government under a king. John Adams argued that democracies merely grant revocable rights to citizens depending on the whims of the masses, while a republic exists to secure and protect preexisting rights. The United States was founded on limited government allocated among three branches - Executive, Legislative and Judicial - and a balance of power between the federal government and the states. Our form of government has already evolved over the years toward more direct elections by the people. In 1913, the states ratified the XVII Amendment, which required states to elect their senators by popular vote: State legislatures previously elected senators, while U.S. representatives were elected by popular vote. Proponents argued that state legislatures had become deadlocked and even worse, bribery and corruption often influenced selections. In recent years, political action committees (PAC) with huge bankrolls
have influenced senatorial elections in key states by flooding the airwaves with advertising. Ironically, Delaware waited until June 2010 to ratify the XVII Amendment. The tea party movement has called for repeal of the XVII Amendment, saying that it gives the federal government too much power over the states, and that senators today are too beholding to special interests. These are the same arguments used for passage of the amendment in the first place. So why are the elections of presidents and senators important to us? The Democratic administration and Congress have passed legislation contrary to the will of the people. Fifty-six percent of Americans favor repeal of the recent Health Care Reform law. Congress is now contemplating passing more unpopular legislation, as “lame ducks” after the election, if they lose their majority in the House or Senate. We have seen the ugly results of a government totally controlled by one political party with a radical base to appease. As for us in Delaware, we have a population of approximately 885,000 in a nation of 307 million, less than .3% of the national population. We have three electoral votes out of 535, which is less than .6% of the Electoral College. Statewide, we will lose approximately half our influence under the national popular vote system. The founders were visionaries. While leaving the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well Doctor Franklin,
