Home Depot changes plans to locate store near Seaford By Lynn R. Parks Home Depot, which had planned to construct a 133,000-square-foot store on U.S. 13, Seaford, has changed its mind. Seaford city manager Dolores Slatcher said Tuesday that the chain home supply store contacted her Friday and said that it was withdrawing from its contract to purchase the property.

Home Depot had planned to build on 14 acres between the Herr’s warehouse and the Leon Brown’s Floor Coverings building. The Seaford City Council gave final approval to the project in May. Slatcher said that Home Depot cited costs associated with its entrances off U.S. 13 and alternate U.S. 13 as the reason for the withdrawal. “They figured them into

their formula and said that the numbers just didn’t work,” she said. Jason Gloeckler, spokesman for the Delaware Department of Transportation, said that those costs were estimated at nearly $1.8 million. The company would have been required to pay for new signs on U.S. 13 and alternate U.S. 13. It would also have been required to Continued to page 4

Area recovers quickly from winds and rain of Ernesto By Lynn R. Parks In the rains and gusty winds of tropical storm Ernesto, the city of Seaford experienced several power outages, city manager Dolores Slatcher said. Most were due to fallen trees and branches, she added. By mid-afternoon Saturday, all power had been restored, Slatcher said. The longest outage in Seaford occurred along Pennsylvania Avenue, where a couple of homes were without power from Friday evening at around 8 until Saturday afternoon. As of Tuesday, crews still had to replace a pole on that street. "There is a gas main in the vicinity and we have to contact Miss Utility before we begin work," Slatcher said. The city has about 3,500 customers on its electric system. Slatcher could not give an estimate of Ernesto's cost to the city. The Delaware Electric Cooperative reported that about 17,500 of its 66,000 customers were without electricity at some point during the storm. All power was restored by 6 a.m. Sunday morning. "We worked as diligently and effectively as we could to restore power as quickly and safely as possible," said Rob Book, cooperative spokesman. Most of the outages were caused by falling trees and limbs, the cooperative said. Conectiv said that nearly 16,500 customers in Delaware experienced outages during the storm, about 11,000 of whom

The longest outage in Seaford occurred along Pennsylvania Avenue, where a couple of homes were without power from Friday evening at around 8 until Saturday afternoon. live in New Castle County. Power was restored to most homes be 8 p.m. Sunday, spokesman Matt Likovich said. At the height of the storm on Friday evening, about 49,000 Conectiv customers in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia were without power. Again, most damage was caused by falling trees and branches. Likovich said that 100 linemen from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia helped Conectiv with the cleanup. In addition, tree trimmers from West Virginia and Pennsylvania helped to clear branches. On Saturday afternoon, the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) said that no fatalities or injuries were reported in Delaware as a result of Ernesto. A few roads were flooded in Sussex County, DEMA said, but "there were no requests for assistance or evacuation by residents," it added. DEMA suspended its storm operations Saturday afternoon.

Sussex County 9/11 ceremony Sussex County Government invites the public to attend a special recognition ceremony commemorating the fifth anniversary of 9/11, on Sept. 11, at 10 a.m., on The Circle in Georgetown. “As the nation pauses to reflect on the horrors we witnessed that morning five years ago, we remember those firefighters, police and paramedics who courageously raced into the fiery, crumbling towers to save those in harm’s way,” Sussex County Administrator Robert L. Stickels said. “Sadly, many of those heroes didn’t get the chance to finish their mission. We will always remember those souls for what they did, for what they tried to accomplish, and ultimately for what they gave. But we take this time to honor their brethren, the men and women who continue to carry on the mission of public service every day in places like Sussex County. “Let us remember those who gave their lives Sept. 11, 2001, by honoring those who give their all, today. As President Bush has said, ‘We will never forget,’” Stickels said. During the ceremony, a host of patriotic activities will take place including the presentation of the colors by the Sussex County EMS Honor Guard and the symbolic ringing of the bells. The combined Sussex Tech, Saint Thomas More High School and Milford Community Bands, along with the Sussex Academy of Arts and Sciences Choir, will provide music surrounded by a backdrop of emergency vehicles on display around Georgetown’s historic Circle. In addition, vocalist Kevin Short will sing, “Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning?” The Circle will be closed one hour before the ceremony, beginning at 9 a.m., and re-open at noon the same day. Parking will be available on local streets. For more information, contact Sussex County EMS at (302) 854-5050.

Habitat for Humanity Build Work will begin on the Habitat for Humanity 2006 Build on Sept.18 and run throughout the week. There will be 100-120 construction workers working full-days to build the first three of 19 homes planned. The construction site is on German Road in the Concord area. The Seaford Mission has agreed to coordinate breakfast, lunch and snacks for the workers. Feeding so many workers requires a lot of food and planning. All Sussex County churches and businesses are encouraged to participate. Any level of participation is welcomed. Servers are needed as well as donations of bottled water, fruit, crackers, paper products, etc. To offer your help, call The Mission at 629-2559. This week of construction is the perfect way to show how united the Seaford area is to providing homes for the deserving.

pay for new curbing, turn lanes, sidewalks, a DART bus shelter and a modified crossover on U.S. 13 and a bike lane on alternate U.S. 13. Entrance plans for the store were approved more than six weeks ago, Gloeckler said. “Technically, the approval has expired,” Gloeckler added. “But if they came in and said they wanted to pursue it, they could probably still pick up where they left off. That is up to the discretion of the department.” Gloeckler said that Home Depot was permitted for two entrances from U.S. 13 and one exit. It was also allowed to have two entrances and exits from alternate U.S. 13. Slatcher said that the city was disappointed in Home Depot’s decision. “The city invested a lot of time in this project,” she said. “But this is something that happens.” Don Harrison, public relations manager for the Southern Division of The Home Depot, issued the following statement Tuesday: "Unfortunately, the construction costs are more than what was budgeted for this store. However, we continue to enjoy a good working relationship with Delaware officials and are exploring our options elsewhere in the state.”

Education Epworth grad working for the U.S. Forest Service

Two Sussex Tech teachers were invited to serve as facilitators at the Pennsylvania Governor’s Institute on Integrating Mathematics in Career and Technical Education Programs conference held this summer. From left: Colleen Stepanovich, curriculum coordinator CTC of Lackawanna County, Pa.; Chris Weller, Governor’s Institute Program coordinator, Pennsylvania Dept. of Education; Dr. Cynthia Pellock, Governor’s Institute site coordinator, Penn State University; Renee Parsley (Milford), Sussex Tech H.S. math teacher; Les Humphrey (Laurel), Sussex Tech H.S. automotive technology teacher; and Richard Mishura, professor of mathematics, Johnson College.

Sussex Tech teachers join in math/technology conference Two Sussex Technical High School teachers were recently invited by Penn State University to serve as facilitators at the Pennsylvania Governor's Institute on Integrating Mathematics in Career and Technical Education (CTE) Programs. Automotive technologies teacher Les Humphrey and math teacher Renee Parsley spent four days at the conference, which was held July 31 through Aug. 3 in Gettysburg, Pa. During the conference, Humphrey and Parsley assisted other technical/math teacher teams in writing lesson plans which integrate math into various CTE programs. Approximately 125 CTE, math and special education teachers attended the conference. Participants were eligible to earn two graduate credits upon completion of the conference's required work. “The schedule for the conference was very demanding. On Wednesday , in particular, many teams were still working late into the evening,” said Parsley. “I personally assisted at least a dozen teams in preparing their lessons for final submission.”

By the end of the week, about 75 lessons were submitted along with other work including an action plan from each participating school concerning integrating mathematics into CTE programs schoolwide. The conference was based on research from the Math-in-CTE study conducted by the National Research Center in Career and Technical Education, 2003-2005. Humphrey and Parsley, along with two other Sussex Tech teachers, Jim Friedel and Donna Johnson, were participating teachers in this two-year study. “Participating in this study was one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. It really helped me to improve my methods for enhancing the mathematics that already exists in my program. It also gave me the opportunity to build some great relationships with educators from around the country,” said Humphrey. It was precisely these relationships that precipitated Penn State's request for Humphrey and Parsley to assist with this conference and another that was held at Temple University earlier this year.

Stephanie Bertaina, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Daryl Sharman of Georgetown, has accepted a position with the United States Forest Service in Washington, D.C., as a result of being chosen as a finalist in the Presidential Management Fellowship program authorized by the Office of the President of the United States. The Presidential Management Fellowship is a competitive program designed to attract outstanding graduate students from a variety of academic fields to public service for the federal government. Each year, graduate students across the country compete by application and interview to achieve finalist status. As a graduate student in Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Bertaina applied for the program in October, received semifinalist status in January and, after an intense day-long interview process in Chicago, received her finalist status in March. She was one of fewer than 600 graduate students from throughout the country selected in all fields and one of only 15 students selected from the Environmental Sciences and Natural Resources fields. Because of her finalist status, Bertaina attended a federal job fair in Washington, D.C., in April to interview with various government agencies, reaching an agreement with the Forest Service at that time to pursue work with the Cooperative Forestry Division on non-federal forest

Jerry Jones receives Gospel Music awards Seaford resident Jerry Jones once again received awards from the Country Gospel Music Association, Branson, Missouri, on August 26, 2006. Jones received awards for “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year” for the Eastern United States at the annual Eastern United States Silver Heart Convention and Awards Show, held this year in Oakland, Maryland. Thirty states are included in the Eastern United States region, including Nashville, Tennessee. This is the third year in a row Jones has received these awards, voted on and awarded by his peers, also members of the Country Gospel Music Association. Having received the awards in the Eastern Region allows him to be considered for International Awards for both categories in Branson, Missouri, in October of this year. Jones was the recipient for the “International Songwriter of the Year” Award in Branson, Mo., in October of 2005. He also received the award for “New Male Vocalist” for 2005 by “Country Gospel Connection Internet Radio” in January 2006. Jerry has released his songs to radio three times in the past two years. A song written by him, “Calvary,” reached number four on the Hope Street International chart in May of 2005. He again released “Calvary” in July of this year with Ready

Jerry and his wife, Jeannie, are co-directors of the Seaford chapter of the Country Gospel Music Association. The chapter holds Jamborees every other month in local churches and facilities, and hosts a chosen benefit once a year for a worthy cause. Last year the chapter held a concert to help raise funding for a special bed for a local child with Cerebral Palsy. In June 2006 they held a concert to raise funds for the Nanticoke Senior Center building fund. Jerry also sings for local churches and concerts and travels extensively. Jeannie Jones, Jerry’s wife, manages their ministry. They now have six CDs. An Australian tour is being planned for 2007 by Sandra Finley, an Australian DJ who met the couple at a CGMA convention in 2005 and returned to Australia with Jerry’s music, to which the Australians took an immediate liking. Jerry became a Christian just four years ago, and since that time has had miraculous experiences with his music. He never before had the ability to write songs, but has now written 19 gospel songs and been awarded for his songs four different times. The Seaford couple give all the credit and honor to their Lord Jesus Christ.

✳ SEPTEMBER 7 - 13, 2006


Del. 1 expansion project begins Monday, Sept. 11 The Department of Transportation announces that Rt. 1 from 1,100 feet north of the Rt. 9/Five Points intersection near Lewes to Route 24 will be under construction from Sept. 11, 2006 through late Spring 2008. The Rt. 1 Expansion Project is being undertaken in order to restore a dedicated third travel lane for motorists, and add a dedicated shared use lane on Rt. 1 southbound for cyclists, buses and vehicles making right turns. Such improvements are needed in order to address safety and operational issues due to increased traffic volumes on Rt. 1 through the project limits. Currently, Rt. 1 handles approximately 70,000 vehicles a day during peak travel days. Traffic volumes have historically increased 5 percent per year. Where sidewalks currently exist, pedestrian access will be maintained during construction. In addition sidewalks will be added as a part of the project along the southbound side of Rt. 1 within the project limits. In all, pedestrian safety and mobility will be improved through the addition of sidewalks and pedestrian signals and crosswalks across Rt. 1 at the Tanger Outlet Center - Midway entrance and at Postal Lane. Initially, during the first stage of construction (Sept. 11, 2006 and March 2007), motorists will see concrete barriers and drums placed on Rt. 1 southbound from Rt. 24 to just north of Kings Highway (Home Depot). Crews working in the shoulder will require the far right outside lane of Rt. 1 southbound to be closed to traffic. Also during this phase, on Rt. 1 northbound, motorist will see construction occurring between Brian Drive and Melson Road (Midway), requiring the existing shoulder/right turn lane to be closed to traffic. In the second phase of construction, expected to begin July 2007 and end in late Spring 2008, work will occur in the median, which will restrict the inside travel lane of both Rt. 1 northbound and southbound. At least two of three travel lanes will be open during construction. This work will create significant travel delays before and through the 2.7-mile project corridor. Motorists may take alternate routes into and out of the beach area as follows: • Traveling South: Follow Rt. 1 South to the Milford Rt. 113/Rt. 1 split. Take Rt. 113 South to Rt. 26 or Rt. 54 East. Continue east to beach area. • Northwest: Rt. 24 West to Rt. 5 North. • Southwest: Rt. 54 West to Rt. 113 North. Businesses and residences should note that access will be maintained to all businesses and residences along Rt. 1 during construction. Also, DelDOT will provide signage to ensure motorists know where to access business entrances. Cyclists are encouraged to use Bike Rt. 1/Plantations Road as a safer, alternate route through the area. Cyclists may also wish to ride DART

First State buses equipped with bike racks. Cyclists traveling in the work zone should follow the rules of the road. Riding with the flow of traffic, wearing bright reflective clothing, using bike lights, and always wearing a helmet are important bike safety rules to keep in mind. For more information and printable graphics, contact DelDOT Public Relations at (302) 760-2080 or 1-800-6525600 or visit the project website at expansion.

‘Imagine A Litter Free Delaware’ The Delaware Department of Transportation announces that it will host its second annual “Imagine A Litter Free Delaware” Clean Up Day on Saturday, Sept. 30. DelDOT has designated this as a statewide cleanup day when everyone is invited to come out to clean Delaware’s roads, highways and community areas. This is also the day when everyone should stop and consider what a litterfree Delaware would look like, and do what they can to make our state and our world cleaner and healthier. It’s also a great day for Adopt-AHighway volunteers and/or Adopt-ABike Path volunteers to do one of their annual clean ups. Businesses, citizens, and homeowners are also being asked to ensure that trash is well contained, to pick up debris blowing around their property and to step outside to sweep a sidewalk, pick up sticks, or rake up some leaves. In addition, Secretary of Transportation Carolann Wicks is requesting the DelDOT maintenance forces pay special attention to cleaning Delaware’s roadsides during the week of Oct. 2-6. So you’ll see DelDOT crews out in force too. If interested, register by Sept. 15 at, under Hot Topics, or contact the Office of Public Relations at 302-760-2080 or 1-800-652-5600. No telephone registrations. There is no fee to participate, just a desire to have fun. One free thank you bag per participant is available on a first come, first served basis when picking up supplies. Of course, be sure to thank “Safety First!” Anyone cleaning roadways should visit the nearest DelDOT district office to obtain safety information, safety vests and trash bags, Sept. 25-29. Following the cleanup, participants may choose to dispose of the trash themselves (i.e., via household trash pick up, landfill, etc.); or, filled trash bags may be placed near a traffic sign for DelDOT to pick up. If you need DelDOT to pick up the bags, contact us at 1-800-652-5600 to let us know the location of these filled trash bags so they can be removed as soon as possible. The rain date for the event will be Sunday, Oct. 1.

DNREC to enforce Anti-Idling Regulation DNREC’s Division of Air and Waste Management Enforcement Section in September started ticketing operators of heavy duty vehicles violating Regulation 45, Excessive Idling of Heavy Duty Vehicles. The regulation prohibits owners of onroad vehicles over 8,500 pounds gross vehicle weight to idle their engines for a period more than three minutes long. Violators are subject to a penalty of not less than $50 and not more than $500 for each offense. Subsequent violations carry fines of $500 - $1500. According to Ali Mirzakhalili, Air Quality Management Section Administrator, the regulation continues DNREC’s efforts to reduce emissions of nitrogen ox-

ides, fine particulates, and other tailpipe pollutants from heavy-duty vehicles operated in the state. “Vehicle emissions contribute significantly to our overall air quality, and we are particularly concerned with diesel exhaust,” said Mirzakhalili. “Regulation 45 and our plans to enforce the anti-idling regulation of heavy duty vehicles are important in helping us reach our goals of improving air quality and protecting public health in Delaware.” Heavy duty vehicles subject to this regulation include long-haul and delivery trucks, as well as transit and school buses. Emergency fire, rescue, and lifesaving vehicles are exempt from the regulation. Ad-

ditional vehicle operating situations are exempt and are listed in the Exemption Section of the regulation. The regulation can be obtained by contacting Phil Wheeler at 302-739-9402. Since the regulation was adopted in April 2005, DNREC’s Enforcement Section completed education on the anti-idling rule. “We met with more than 30 trucking businesses potentially affected by the new regulation,” said Captain Chip McDaniel, operations manager with the Division’s Enforcement Section. “The Delaware Motor Transport Association, Delaware Transit Corporation and the Delaware Department of Education

worked with us to develop the regulation and assisted with our educational efforts,” he said. Delaware is among more than 25 state and city jurisdictions that have implemented regulations addressing idling time for heavy-duty vehicles. Currently, the city of Philadelphia, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut have maximum allowable idling time restrictions. Citizens can report idling violations by calling the Air and Waste Management Enforcement Section’s 24 Hour Environmental Complaint Line in-state at 1-800-6628802.

Delaware Coastal Cleanup still needs volunteers


What do an ice skate, exercise bike, washing machine and toilet plunger have in common? No, this isn’t the start to a bad joke. All of these items were found on Delaware’s beaches last year during the Coastal Cleanup. This year the cleanup will be on Sept. 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. This is the 20th year Delaware is participating in the world’s largest annual clearing of trash from coastlines and lakes by volunteers. A key component of Coastal Cleanup is the volunteers and we need a lot of them! The cleanup spans the state’s 97-mile eastern coastline and includes river and ocean shorelines as well as wetland and watershed areas. This year more than 49 sites, which cover New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties, are being targeted. Everyone from youth groups and businesses to families and individuals are encouraged to volunteer. You can register online at On the right-hand side of the page you will see a button that says “Coastal Cleanup Signup,” which will take you to the cleanup’s homepage. You can also register over the phone by calling Jennifer Hall, Coastal Cleanup Coordinator, at (302) 739-9902. When volunteers report to their site, they are given data cards to record the number and type of trash they pick up. This information tells us what kind of activities produce the trash and where we



can focus our attention when it comes to creating policy. Last year almost 12,000 pounds of trash were collected. Cigarettes were the number one item collected; volunteers picked up 15,351 cigarette butts! Some other interesting items picked up were a shopping cart, keys, furniture and a cell phone. For more information, please call Jennifer Hall, (302) 739-9064.

The groom is the son of Rudolph and Teresa Wilson of Seaford. The couple met while attending the same classes at Salisbury University. Glass vases filled with local wildflowers and flowers from the bride’s parents’ gardens and arranged by the bride’s mother were used to decorate the tables. Angel trumpet bushes grown by the bride’s father were in bloom and used to create the altar.

Their jewelry was hand-made by the bride, consisting of sterling silver, freshwater blue grey pearls and crystals. Bouquets were arranged by the bride’s mother using yellow day lilies, bee balm, white daisies, and trailing vinca vine from the family gardens. The flower girl, Hannah Moore, the bride’s niece, of Trumbauersville, wore an off-white cotton summer dress and carried a basket of white rose petals.

2006 Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival thank you and novelty toys. One of AFRAM’s missions is to invite Non-Profit groups to share a wealth of information about men, women, children, family, housing, finances, job opportunities and health issues. These resources are priceless. The biggest draw to the Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival was the energetic entertainment featuring; Reggae, Hip-Hop, Gospel, Drummers, Dancer, Storytellers, Jazz and the funky Mo-town Sounds. Oh, did I forget mention the miraculous weather that illuminated down on AFRAM. The “Son” always shines on AFRAM - Thank God for a praying Committee. The buzz is that the Festival may be outgrowing Nutter Park. Nevertheless, the show must go on. The Planning Sessions for the 10th edition of AFRAM (Aug. 10 & 11, 2007) will resume in January. The only thing I will guarantee is the best is yet to come!

By Councilwoman Pat A. Jones AFRAM Festival executive director

Well, what can I say except “Year number nine did mighty fine.” In fact, one critic’s email said the 2006 AFRAM Festival was a “Whopping Success.” Moreover, having experienced them all, I must agree. The ninth Edition of the 2006 Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival attendance was beyond our expectation. People came from: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Virginia , North and South Carolina, California, Florida and even from our nations capital; Washington D.C. to attend this extraordinary two-day event. People from a variety of lifestyle packed Nutter Park for reasons all their own. Some came for the food, others for the entertainment then you had most that just came to a good olé time. The food was fabulous everything from oyster fritters, hotdogs, curry goat, fried fish, Italian Ice, and sweet potato pie, just to tantalize your taste buds. The Food Vendors are a welcome treat to the Festival because it give entrepreneurs an opportunity to express a rich heritage of culinary skills. The ethnic vendors made shopping adventurous marketing Tshirts, African Art, clothing, shea butter, shoes, pocketbooks, sunglasses, jewelry,

AFRAM Festival promotes families, community By Betty L. Jarman Fantastic! There is no other way to describe the awesome experience, extraordinary feats and stirring performances made possible by the 2006 Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival. Many have said that this has been the greatest festival held so far. This presents a challenge for next year’s committee to come up with more bold and daring ideas intent on topping this year’s festival. After months of planning, organizing, and praying for beautiful weather, the committee breathed a sigh of relief as a gorgeous weekend unfolded. Coupled with the perfect weather, an exciting parade, a wide variety of children’s events, great food and great music, and the appearance of local politicians, attendance was at all time high this year.


The New Wave In Roofing

One of the highlights was to award former mayor, Danny Short, the distinguished 2006 AFRAM Outstanding Community Public Service Award. Danny was chosen for his award because of his dedication to public service and his unwavering support of the AFRAM Festival. Just to see the children having fun and playing the games was a thrill. This family-oriented event was designed to promote families, unity, celebrate our heritage and to build a stronger community. It is a reminder that the black community has always drawn its love, faith, strength, support from being a close, connected, caring, Christian community. This defines our heritage, our spiritual roots; who we are and where we came from. Knowing this should influence the black community to return back to its spiritual roots, to preserve and build on our

proud, rich heritage. Having the spotlight turned on Nutter Park is a positive thing, because it allowed those passing by to see that we place a high value on family, youth and community. And that we can come together in a large gathering like this and have fun and pleasure without incident. We give special thanks to the local businesses and sponsors who donated door prizes, which added suspense to the day. One woman walked away with a $100 gift certificate from Wal-Mart. Others were pleased to receive some beautiful giveaways. As community leaders and ambassadors, AFRAM members feel a personal responsibility to do all they can to promote unity and bonding within the greater community. This was made evident in this year’s theme “Uniting Our Community,”

which is role that everyone can play a part in. Joining together, we can make our community stronger, connected and more inclusive. We want to thank AFRAM’s executive director, Councilwoman Pat Jones for her exemplary leadership and unrentless drive in working diligently to bring such an extraordinary, glorious two-day event to the Eastern Shore Community. We also want to thank her husband, Greg Jones, for his support, sacrifices and dedication to AFRAM and to the community. We also wish to thank the AFRAM Festival Dream Team for their efforts, energy and contributions for helping make this event possible. The committee feels blessed and honored to be able to serve the community this way. They are making a difference and deserve your support.

Residents oppose Laurel annexation, plans for development By Tony E. Windsor Laurel officials are in the midst of making one of the most significant land annexation decisions in the history of the town. On Wednesday, Sept. 13, a public hearing will be held to allow public comments and concerns regarding a nearly 500-acre annexation request that would incorporate both commercial and residential construction southeast of Laurel. The project, being developed by Discovery Group LLC, is proposed for a 480acre parcel of land owned by David G. Horsey & Sons. The land is located just off US 13, near Camp Road and Colonial Road. The proposed project would include about 1.3 million square feet of commercial, recreational and residential buildings. The complex is slated to have retail outlets, motels, office space, recreational fields and 1,400 residential units. Mayor John Shwed is excited about the possibilities that the project would bring to the town. “If this project is implemented in the way that the Discovery Group has outlined, I think this will prove to provide a significant revenue stream to benefit the town,” he said. But many residents who live in the area of the proposed development are worried that the project is too much, too fast. “I have talked with more than 75 people in this neighborhood and not one person has had a positive attitude toward this,” said Sylvia Brohawn, who lives at the corner of Discountland Road and Colonial Road. “A lot of them say that they moved here because they like the area the way it is. This kind of thing is what they moved away from.” “When I went to town hall and looked at the proposal, I was shaking,” added Leslie Carter, who lives on Discountland Road. “I didn’t believe what was going on.” Brohawn and Carter are urging residents who have questions about the proposal to attend Wednesday’s public meeting. They believe that too much of the discussion about the proposal has been done too quietly. “A lot of people had no clear idea as to the magnitude of what is being proposed,” said Carter. “We feel a lot of the work has been done without enough knowledge given to the citizens it will affect the most,” added Brohawn. “If this goes through, it will mean a large change of lifestyle for this area.” Brohawn and Carter are both concerned about a proposed propane gas storage area planned for near Brohawn’s home. “That kind of thing is so dangerous to have near a residential area,” Carter said. They are also concerned about their property going down in value, about the quality of their wells and about traffic. ”It is very difficult to go down Discountland Road now,” added Brohawn. “When I first moved here, I rode horses down that road. I wouldn’t do that now.” “U.S. 13 is horrendous as it is,” said Rick Culver, a Laurel native who has lived at the corner of Camp Road and Discountland Road for 17 years. “This would only make it worse.” In December, Robert Horsey of David G. Horsey & Sons attended a town council meeting. He told the council that the proj-

This map shows the proposed development planned for 480 acres at Camp Road and Colonial Road. The project as proposed would have about 1.3 million square feet of commercial, recreational and residential buildings, including stores, motels and office space, as well as recreational fields.

ect will focus on the youth sports mission of the Horsey Family Youth Foundation. At that time, he was not at town hall for the purpose of discussing the details of the project, so he was not prepared to elaborate on specifics. But in response to council questions, Horsey said that the plans for retail space involve a variety of commercial businesses. He also said there will be three motels with a total of between 900 and 1,000 rooms. The complex would also have about 50,000 square feet of office space and a 20,000-seat stadium dedicated to youth sports. The remainder of the complex would be open sports fields. Horsey explained that profits from the development would support the Horsey Family Youth Foundation.

Economic possibilities exciting On Thursday, Mayor John Shwed said that the Horsey/Discovery Group project is something that the town is excited about in terms of economic development, but very committed to approaching in a carefully planned way. “Just like the general public, I will have questions at the public hearing that I hope to get answered about this project,” he said. Shwed said that the proposed project would cost several hundred million dollars to construct. It has been estimated that a project the size of the Horsey development could create 6,000 to 7,000 new jobs, as well as significant revenues associated with property taxes, various service fees and real estate transfer taxes. Shwed said that the town is aware that if built to it fullest potential, the Horsey project would be more than the town’s municipal wastewater treatment plant could handle, even with the new expansion that is now under way. “We know, and the state knows, that our wastewater treatment plant is not able to handle the full capacity of this proposed development,” he said. “However, we have made the state aware that we will be

able to handle the first phase of the project, which involves about 350 EDUs (equivalency dwelling units). After that we will need to enhance our wastewater operation to meet the continuing demand. We already have our engineering firm looking at this and helping to design a strategy to enhance the plant as capacity requires.” Shwed said taxpayers need not worry about the potential of increasing fees or taxes to enhance the wastewater plan to meet the demands of the Horsey development project. “We will not be expecting our existing taxpayers to foot the bill for a wastewater plant upgrade brought on by new demands. The Discovery Group has told us it will fund any necessary enhancements needed to handle the wastewater treatment needs brought on by this project.” Shwed did say the town needs to begin looking at the public services that may need to be enhanced to serve not only the Horsey project, but other town expansions in the community’s future. “We will have to look at the need for expanded support services as it applies to such town entities as the Laurel Police Department and the Public Works

Department,” he said. “We will have to study how to expand services as they are needed based on new developments.” The Delaware Department of Transportation is reviewing the project plans and will be making recommendations that will address issues regarding traffic control and access and egress to the project property. Shwed said the Discovery Group has indicated ground may be broken on the project by mid-2007 or early 2008. “I think this project will move quickly,” he said. “The town will move as fast as possible, but also move very responsibly on this project process.” Culver hopes that residents of the area who are opposed to the development make a “strong showing” at Wednesday’s public hearing. “We just don’t think it’s fair for the town, Discover Group and David Horsey to try to push this over on us. This upsets me. If this goes through, our way of life will never be the same. We don’t think it’s fair for that group to take that away from people who have lived out here all this time.”

Woodland Ferry Festival 2006

Ferry expected to be back in service for annual celebration Food and entertainment are highlights of annual Woodland Ferry Festival By Lynn R. Parks Mary Ellen Taylor and her four grandchildren have been working on their coloring book for four years. Now, “the books have finally arrived,” said Taylor, Seaford. “Animal Tracks” will make its debut on Saturday in Woodland. Taylor will be one of more than 30 people who will sell their wares during the 14th annual Woodland Ferry Festival. The festival, which was started to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the founding of the ferry, will also feature

music and entertainment. The star of the festival, the ferry itself, has been out of commission for more than a month. Jason Gloeckler, spokesman for the Delaware Department of Transportation, said last week that it is “very likely” that necessary repairs will be completed in time for the ferry to take part in the festivities. “The final part that we need should be coming in today,” he said Friday. He expected crews to be able to install that part some time this week. For its first day back on the job after a long illness, the ferry won’t have

any heavy loads to carry. It will be closed to vehicles throughout the festival, providing rides across the Nanticoke River for pedestrians only. Donna Angell is a volunteer with the Woodland Ferry Association, sponsor of the festival. For 14 years, she has been in charge of getting food vendors, craftsmen and entertainment. “Every year, we say that we have between 1,500 and 2,000 people here,” she said. “I expect about the same this year.” Angell said that she expects a big turnout of craftsmen this year. She Continued on page 26

Funding found for new Woodland ferry By Lynn R. Parks Funding for the new ferry at Woodland has been found. According to Jason Gloeckler, spokesman for the Delaware Department of Transportation, the state will spend about $500,000 in Community Transportation Funds to meet the 20-percent match required by the federal grant to replace the current ferry. Total cost for the project is about $2.5 million. Gloeckler said that he expects all the paperwork required by the project to be completed by the end of September. He added that the new ferry will be in place "by late spring 2008." That new ferry will hold up to six cars; the current ferry can hold only three cars. Replacement of the current 43-year-old vessel was part of the nearly $700 million budget submitted in the summer of 2005 by the Delaware Department of Transportation to the state legislature. But when that budget was slashed by $287 million, funding for the new ferry disappeared. The federal transportation bill signed in 2005 included funding for a new vessel. But until now, the state was unable to come up with the 20-percent match required by the federal grant.

DNREC, in cooperation with the Forest Service is offering streamside buffer restoration program for landowners to plant trees along waterways to protect the health of Delaware's community and environment.

Got Trees?

Tree Buffers • Create a sense of place • Enhance wildlife habitat • Reduce property loss to storms • Keep stream banks stable • Filter nutrients & sediments • Provide windbreaks • Slow runoff • Provide recreation opportunity for swimming, hiking, bird watching, fishing, and more • Make a neighborhood beautiful • Reduce noise • Improve air and water quality

Stop by the “GOT TREES?” & Nanticoke Watershed Alliance booth at the

Woodland Ferry Festival to learn more, and get a free tree! The Woodland Ferry Festival, Saturday, September 9, 2006 in Woodland DE (4 miles southwest of Seaford DE). The festival begins at 7am. The festival features over 30 crafters, demonstrations, live music, and children’s activities. There is no charge to attend this one-day festival. All proceeds benefit the Woodland Ferry Association’s many projects. For more information, call Donna Angell @ (302) 629-8077

Why Trees…. Delaware’s coastal streams, rivers, and bays are sensitive and valuable areas, important to the state’s quality of life and economic well-being. Luckily, pollution can be greatly reduced by installing forested buffers. A buffer of trees, shrubs, and grasses helps provide clean water, a living filter, erosion control, storm and rainwater management, and homes for wildlife. For more information about the “Got Trees” Buffer Initiative to provide trees to Delaware landowners and increase buffers along Delaware’s waterways, please contact: Jennifer Campagnini, Delaware Department of Natural Resources, at 302– 739-9939. This project was funded, in part, through a grant from the Delaware Coastal Programs with funding from the Office of and Coastal Resource Management, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under award number NA04NOS4190034

added that she is pleased that Taylor and her coloring book will be among them. “Animal Tracks” started out as a project to strengthen ties with her grandchildren, said Taylor, who retired in 2004 from Sussex Tech, where she taught reading and English. Her son-in-law, David Lowe, is a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and he and his family have been stationed in many cities, many of them far away from Seaford. “Because they were so far away, we only got to see them two times a year,” said Taylor. “I wanted some way to build family ties with my grandchildren, so they would have a sense of their grandparents. I didn’t want to be a grandmother known just for sending a box of cookies at Christmas.”

The project started four years ago, when Taylor’s oldest grandchild, Kirsten, was 10. Based on her own research, Kirsten selected animals to include in an alphabet book. She also wrote a short paragraph about each animal. Zachary, then 7, drew pictures of each animal. “He is our artist,” Taylor said. As the final piece of the book, Taylor wrote short, silly verses about each animal. At the back of the book are contributions by Taylor’s two youngest grandchildren, Nathan, 8, and Josiah, 7. “I was not about to leave them out,” she said. The two boys dictated to their mother, Danya, something that they wanted to say about animals. Danya wrote that down and Taylor composed simple verses to accompany their thoughts.

Taylor ordered 1,000 copies of “Animal Tracks” from her publisher, Cherokee Publications, Dover. The books will be available to the public for the first time at the Woodland Ferry Festival, for $10 each. In addition to selling her books, Taylor hopes to take the lessons that she learned in writing it to other families. “I would like to go into schools and talk to parents about ways to use literacy for continuing lifelong learning and for building family ties,” she said. “This whole process has just been wonderful. And the children worked so hard and were so excited. When the books arrived, there was a big celebration.” Also selling his creations during the festival will be engraver Rob Younce, Newark. A service administrator with the Bank of America by day, Younce, 40, does engraving by night, turning plain kitchen pans into works of art. “My regular job was not challenging my artistic side,” he said. “I have always been an artist at heart.” Younce creates original designs on the cake pans. As a special during the festival, he will do a limited number of Woodland

Ferry pans, featuring an engraving of the ferry. While the pans are his best sellers, he also engraves metal pet bowls and dog tags. His work can be viewed on his Web site, In addition to Younce and Taylor, Seaford artist Woody Woodruff will be at the festival, Angell said. Photographer Trisha Parsons, Long Neck, will also have a booth. And as always, representatives of Orrell’s Maryland Beaten Biscuits will be there, selling the company’s unique Eastern Shore biscuits. The festival will get under way at 7 a.m. with the traditional all-you-can-eat breakfast in the church hall of Woodland United Methodist Church and served by the Galestown Ruritan Club. Cost is $6.

We have decided that the wait in the oyster line makes the sandwiches taste better. Oh yes, Freddie is keeping busy tinkering on his cars and maybe a few others if the mood strikes him.

Champagne grapes are worth a battle with fruit flies You have to be brave to deal with fruit during fruit fly season. But a recent article by David Hagedorn in the Washington Post intrigued me enough to throw caution to the wind and seek out the elusive Champagne Grape. These miniscule, pretty, dark purple balls aren’t so named because the famous sparkling wine is made from them but because someone thought they looked like champagne bubbles. They’re really Black Corinth grapes, sometimes called Zante current grapes. I found them featured at a nearby large supermarket and I have to say they were worth the trip. A modicum of patience is required to pull each tiny orb from their eensyweensy stems but the burst of sweet flavor that explodes in ones mouth is ample reward. Try champagne grapes with either a creamy goat cheese or a sharp blue as an hors d’oeuvre or dessert or sample one of Hagedorn’s suggestions below. I think you’ll agree with him that these grapes are “small gems on stems.” Breakfast of Champagnes 1 serving (1/2 cup). Use any granola of choice for this recipe 1/3 cup yogurt (whole, 2 percent or nonfat) 1/4 cup champagne grapes, pulled off the stem 2 tablespoons granola 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon champagne currants (optional, see note below) Place yogurt in a cereal bowl. Sprinkle with champagne grapes and granola. Drizzle honey over everything and sprinkle currants on top. Note: To make 1 tablespoon of champagne currants, preheat the oven to 250 degrees. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat liner, spread 2 tablespoons champagne grapes, separating them as much as possible. Bake the grapes for 1 hour. They should be shriveled but not completely dried out. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Grilled Cheese, Champagne Grape and Red Onion Sandwich 1 serving 1/2 tablespoon soft unsalted butter 2 slices sandwich bread 2 ounces thinly sliced aged cheddar cheese A few very thin slices of red onion Salt 2 tablespoons champagne grapes Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Butter each slice of bread on one side. On a plate, lay one slice of bread with the butter side down and place cheese slices on the top, making sure the cheese does not hang over the edge of the bread. Place the red onion slices evenly over the cheese and top with a sprinkle of salt and the grapes. Place the other slice of bread on top, buttered side out, pressing slightly so the grapes don’t fall out. Cook over medium heat for 60 to 90 seconds on the first side and 60 seconds on the second side, gently pressing down on the sandwich after turning it over. Cut the sandwich in half on the diagonal and serve.

The Practical Gourmet Grape, Corn and Red Bell Pepper Relish Six 1/2-cup servings. This colorful,

crunchy sweet/savory relish is an excellent accompaniment for grilled/seared chicken breast or fillet of fish, such as salmon, tuna or halibut. 1 cup cooked corn kernels, cut off the cob (from about 2 ears) 1 cup champagne grapes, pulled from stem 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper (about 1/2 a small pepper)

1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno chili pepper 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 1/2 cup chopped scallions (white and tender green parts; about 3 scallions) 2 tablespoons lime juice 1/2 teaspoon salt In a medium bowl, toss all of the ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

JUNE 25, 2006 The Day The Rains Came


✳ SEPTEMBER 7 - 13, 2006


Just a tropical depression? What would a hurricane look like? As the rain pelted my face and blew hard against my back, it was less than three minutes before I was literally soaked from head to toe. I strained to look through my rain-drenched glasses and see what was happening to cause the loud bursts of explosion and showers of fire and sparks that seemed to be igniting the night sky in every direction. Though it sounds like a scene from a battlefield, what I was experiencing was taking place just outside my house near the intersection of Pennsylvania and Delaware avenues. I want to depart from my normal mindless column topics and share my observations from an evening marking the start of Labor Day weekend. Friday afternoon, I, like most everyone else, was awaiting the arrival of tropical depression Ernesto. I knew that this almost hurricane had diminished quite a bit during its travel toward the Delmarva Peninsula and I was confident it would come through our area in the form of gusty winds and a lot of rain. This was certainly nothing to be concerned about as far as I could tell. As Friday afternoon unfolded I noticed that the winds picked up quite a bit and a constant drizzle of rain began to cover Seaford; still no concerns from my perspective. I looked out the window late in the afternoon and noticed that my American flag was more than waving in the breeze. It was literally bending the metal pole that it hung from. Before I could get outside to take down the flag down, the top rope pulley was ripped from out of the

pole where it was attached and ONY INDSOR the flag flew to the ground. This Though this storm was happened with considered no more than such force that the brace was a tropical depression and torn off without less dangerous than even either of the a tropical storm, it was screws coming wreaking havoc on our out.

black night sky and watched as the towering trees surrounding my house blew to and fro in the strong gusting winds, I felt as vulnerable as I have ever felt as both a property owner and the head of my household. Throughout the night I could hear the roaring of power saws as workers cut away at the tree that had crushed the power lines and darkened our homes. Klieg lights and police and fire emergency lights lit up the stormy night along Pennsylvania Avenue. By morning, the tree was cleared but power had not been restored. By mid-morning crews were back at it and by early afternoon most of the power had been restored. I am probably one of the least patient people when it comes to my home losing power. I am climbing the walls, nervously waiting for the electric to come back on. However, I am glad that I decided to go outside during the storm to check on conditions outside my home. We are fortunate to have those people who are dedicated to braving the treacherous elements

to assure that we have power when it is cut off and protection when the tragedy of fire and other property damage incidents occur. We are truly fortunate to have those people who respond when there is an accident, or variety of other life-threatening situations in play. I just want to take the time to once again express my appreciation to the men and women of the city of Seaford, including its volunteer fire department, police officers, power and public works department and others who are part of the emergency response squad that shows up during these sometimes dangerous, life-threatening and always inconvenient events. The same is true for the others who do this such as Greenwood Electric Cooperative, Delmarva Power and other local fire departments, municipal and state police, paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians. I know it does not make up for the time away from family and the miserable, tiring job you perform, but please let me say — Thank you!

DNREC proposes rules to prevent underground storage tank leaks, workshops set for September The DNREC Division of Air & Waste Management, Tank Management Branch, will hold three public workshops in September to accept comments and answer questions regarding proposed changes to the Delaware Regulations Governing Underground Tank Storage Systems. Underground storage tanks are typically found at gas stations. They are also used to store heating fuels. The draft regulations include new requirements for underground storage tank (UST) owners and operators. Some of the key changes include requirements for secondary containment for new tank and piping installations, requirements for the installation of tank top sumps as well as sumps under fuel dis-

pensers, prohibited delivery of product into tank systems that are found to be significantly out of compliance, and requirements for operators to inspect their UST systems on a monthly basis. In addition, changes are proposed to the regulations governing reporting, investigation and cleanup requirements after a “release” (leak) from an underground storage tank system occurs. These changes protect Delaware’s groundwater and meet new federal requirements contained in the 2005 Energy Policy Act. The public workshops will be held as follows: • 10 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Sept. 14, DNREC Division of Air & Waste Manage-

SBA application deadline for June 2006 flooding

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is reminding homeowners, renters and businesses that less than one month remains to submit disaster loan applications for damage caused by the severe storms and flooding that occurred on June 22-28. The deadline to file an application for physical damage is Sept. 11. Homeowners, renters and businesses that sustained physical damage in the declared Dorchester County and contiguous counties of Caroline, Somerset, Talbot and Wicomico in the State of Maryland and contiguous Sussex County in the State of Delaware are eligible to apply. SBA offers loans up to $200,000 to repair disaster damaged primary residences. Homeowners and renters are eligible for loans up to $40,000 to replace personal property such as furniture, appliances and clothing. Loans to businesses of all sizes and non-profit organizations are available up to $1.5 million to repair damage to real estate, machinery, equipment and inventory. Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) are also available to small businesses unable to pay bills or meet operating expenses because of the disaster. Interest rates can be as low as 2.937 percent for homeowners and renters and 4 percent for businesses with terms up to 30 years. Loan amounts and terms are set by SBA and are based upon each applicant’s financial condition. Additionally, disaster victims with insurance should not wait for a settlement before applying to SBA. If a victim does not know how much of their loss will be covered by insurance or other sources, SBA will consider making a loan for the total loss up to its loan limits, provided the borrower agrees to use insurance proceeds to reduce or repay their SBA loan. SBA also offers mitigation funds to disaster victims that have approved physical loans. SBA mitigation funds are designed to help borrowers fund protective measures to prevent damages of the same kind from recurring in the future. To help fund these protective measures, borrowers may request an additional 20 percent of their approved loan amount. Applications and program information remain available by calling the SBA’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 (1800-877-8339 for the hearing impaired), Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. EDT.

A fuel with lower emissions may seem like it’s for the birds. But what if that fuel gave you the same performance and helped us use less foreign oil? That just might change a few minds. Soy biodiesel is made from U.S. soybeans, and a federal tax incentive can keep the price competitive, so you may not even have to spend more to do something good.

Delmarva Bike Week activities announced After five years of skyrocketing growth, Delmarva Bike Week takes a slow ride for 2006. Actually, it’s a ‘Slow Ride’ thanks to Foghat. The ultra cool classic rock band will turn back the clock 35 years Saturday evening at Delmarva Bike Week. The four day event is set for Sept. 14-17 exclusively at Ocean Downs Raceway and its sponsors. Delmarva Bike Week is free admission and free concerts – including Foghat – thanks to those sponsors. Bike parking is also free for the entire event and cars are welcome, but car parking is $10 – it is a motorcycle event after all. Foghat is just part of a very strong musical lineup under the sponsorship of Coors Light, The Grand Hotel, Tri Supply & Equipment, The Maryland Beachcomber and the dynamic restaurant duo of Micky Finns and Teasers at Sunset Marina. Foghat takes the stage Saturday at 7:30 p.m. The super group is preceded by bike week favorite Cross Cut Saw and Random Impact. Bands Silverado Band and the blues-driven Crossroads Band also play Saturday afternoon. The lineup Friday evening is just as strong. It’s Random Impact and Cross Cut Saw leading into the featured Blackfoot. Blackfoot ripped up the stage in 2005 and is determined to do the same at Delmarva Bike Week in 2006. Coors Light sponsors the guitar-driven band for this date. Also playing on Friday will be the Rhythm Pigs and the Silverado Band. But don’t miss Thursday’s action as the Classic Southern Rockers are the featured performers. Made up of musicians who have played with some of the biggest names in the music industry, the group plays many songs better than the original band can play them. Delmarva Bike Week is made possible by Harley-Davidson of

Ocean City, Seaford and Rehoboth Beach. During its four days, the event features the outstanding lineup of music along with thrill shows like the Globe of Death and the Extreme Jumpers as well as the Wall of Death thrill seekers. There are also contests for all sorts of bikes with the Bike Games sponsored by Ocean 98 Radio, Pudding Wrestling sponsored by 96 Rock and more. Heck, there is even a 150 mile per hour JCB backhoe, brought to Delmarva Bike Week by Tri Supply & Equipment. Among the big-name builders on site will be Russell Mitchell and his big rig of bikes from Exile Motorcycles (California) as well as Dave Perewitz (Massachusetts), Desperado Motorcycles (Texas), Iron Core Customs (Virginia Beach), Redneck Engineering (South Carolina) and many more. There is the Cruzin The Coast Party Pin Run that goes all four days and cumulates in a drawing for a jackpot that should exceed $2,000. Stops along the way include the three long hauls with Billy Bob’s Bike Barn near Milford and Crabby Dick’s Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach as well as the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce. In between is BJs On The Water and the Caribbean Pool Bar in Ocean City as well as the wild, wild West Ocean City stops of Teaser’s at Sunset Marina, Micky Fins Restaurant and Bar, Harborside Bar & Restaurant, the 707 Sports Bar & Grille and the hometown of Delmarva Bike Week, the Berlin Chamber of Commerce. There is also the world famous Red Knights Md. Chapter 3 Mr. Whippie’s Ride set for Friday (leaving from Harley-Davidson of Ocean City). Delmarva Bike Week is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 1416, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 17.

Seaford Star Sports Woodbridge varsity soccer looks for team work in 2006 By Mike McClure

Lee leads Blue Jay soccer team into 17th season By Gene Bleile Coach Tim Lee still has the same spirit and enthusiasm for Blue Jay soccer, as he did when he was an assistant coach in 1990. He heads into his 17th season with a “group of young players who are skilled and very enthusiastic,” but “lack in experience and playing time,” he stressed. Lee returns only one senior, Paul Widerman (midfielder) that actually started last season. Overall the Jays will have only a total of four seniors this year, possibly five, if “Mike Zakrewsky is healthy enough to play this season,” he added. He has only a total of 30 players out for both the J.V. and varsity teams this year, but he has a positive attitude about the ebb and flow of players from year to year.

“The kids have a lot more options then ever before. Some are working and need to pay for car insurance, some like video games after school and some don’t have a work ethic for early season practices in the heat,” he said. When all pieces of the starting team puzzle come together, he hopes to improve upon his 2005 record of 11-5 overall and 9-4 conference record that was second to Indian River in the Henlopen South Division. He still vividly remembers a 1-0 loss to the Indians in overtime and another sudden death overtime loss to Tower Hill in the first round of the Delaware State Soccer Tournament. Junior Trevor Lee returns as the major offensive threat again this year, coming off a 22-goal season that had him at the Continued on page 47

Woodbridge varsity soccer coach Scott Bleile doesn’t know where his team will fall in the Henlopen Conference this season, but he does know it will have to play together as a team in order to have a successful season. The Raiders went 4-12 last season with five players from that squad gone due to graduation. Bleile, who is in his seventh year at the helm in Woodbridge, says defense (allowing too many goals) was a weakness of last year’s team. He expects this year’s team to do well on offense. “We have the offense, we’re gonna score some goals as long as we get the ball to the offense,” said Bleile, who added that he has a new defense in place this year. Among the returning players from a year ago are: seniors Rene Mendoza (first team all-conference and third team allstate), Cody McDorman, and Michael Rathbone and juniors Derek Nennstiehl (all-conference), Reuss Idler, Jesse Buck, Nathan Rathbone, and Eddie Thompson. The team’s newcomers include juniors Elder Carajal, Spencer Williams, Dustin Graves, and Marvin Marccario; sophomore Able Sanchez; and freshmen- Micah Idler and Gilberto Villalobos. Bleile has been pleased with his team’s

willingness to work hard and correct mistakes. The Raiders feature a large number of juniors, but Bleile is concerned about Continued on page 47

Seaford cross country teams look for junior leadership By Gene Bleile The Seaford High cross country team is coming off a rebuilding year in 2005 that saw an influx of sophomores finish 4-6 for the boys team and 3-6 for the girls team. Coach Vince Morris is entering his 14th season with a guarded optimism about his returning juniors at both the boys and girls top spots. His top three returning junior boys are Barrett Smith, Rob Urell and Andrew Hoffman. Senior Kyle Webber will also be in the mix along with newcomers Spencer Noel, a sophomore, and Lee Mayer, a freshman. Morris sees “strengths in the boy’s teams, as a young, energetic and enthusiastic group that enjoys working hard.” He is concerned, “that we will be depending on first year runners and underclassman to fill key positions in the top seven runners during the meets.” This will hurt somewhat until these guys gain some racing experience, he added. Conditioning at both boys and girls levels is grueling, just to warm up, the

team started a recent practice with a 25 minute run, followed by timed laps around the track to learn race pacing and endurance. “I stress pacing and consistency to the kids. The first mile of the 5k (3.1 mile) race is usually run on adrenaline, then you hit dead space when that rush is over and you must adjust your pace and mind set for the last 2 miles,” Morris said. “The boys season outlook is based on working our way into race shape, get experience of racing in big meets, then take one meet at a time, while staying competitive with all opponents.” The girl’s team will have top returning runners in juniors Lindsey James and Page Johnson, but they will be challenged by seniors Brittany Wilson and Megan Torbert for the top three spots on the team. Morris also pointed out that senior Margaret Rohlich is working hard and will push hard for a top spot also. He likes the fact, “that we have a returning core group of runners that should keep us Continued on page 49

Young Sussex Tech soccer team looks for improvement By Mike McClure Sussex Tech head coach Carlos Villa lost seven seniors from last year’s varsity soccer team which went 3-10-2, but among his returning players are a few sophomores who saw significant playing time as freshmen. Gone from a year ago are seven seniors including keeper Ricker Adkins and Willie Thomas. This year’s squad is young, with a number of freshmen on the team. “We have a great group of kids. They’re all positive, there are no egos,” said Villa. “We have a good group of kids that will have good sportsmanship.” The Ravens’ returning players include seniors Ryan Lee (forward) and Mike Hearn (forward) and sophomores Evan Lee (midfield), Sebastian Borror (forward), Nathan Zanks (forward), and Michael Obier (midfield). Lee, Borror (the team’s top scorer in ‘05), and Zanks (third team all-state) played as freshman last season. Borror and Zanks played in Ireland and Scotland with the River Soccer Club this summer. The other returning players

will look to fill spots and solidify the team. “I think they’re ready to rise to the occasion,” Villa said. “Even though we’re young we have some experience with these guys.” Sussex Tech’s newcomers include junior Jacob Crumb (defense); sophomores Curt Kouts (forward), Rob Lehman (midfield), Geoffrey Morton (keeper); freshmen Dan Ash (forward) and Ariel Espinoza (forward). Villa says Morton will have to rise to the occasion in goal for the Ravens while Lehman, Kouts, Espinoza, and Ash have shown some promise in the pre-season. Team unity and more experienced players are among the team’s strengths while the need for a stronger offensive attack is a concern. Villa sees Caesar Rodney and Indian River as the favorites entering the season because of their strong feeder programs, although other teams could emerge as the season progresses. “We want to take each game at a time and improve throughout the season,” said Villa. “I think we have the potential, we’ll just see how fast it happens.”

Laurel boys’ soccer team looks to build on first conference win

Seaford soccer continued top of conference scorers in 2005. Seniors Zack Long, Abraham Cruz and Leonel Lopez will be battling for the other offensive position. Senior Paul Widerman will see a challenge from senior Taylor Paul, sophomore Daniel DeMott and junior Drew Venables at midfield. Junior Zac Schofer, Allandson Simon and freshman Tim Halter will try to win a starting job at fullback. The goalie’s job will be handled by junior Andrew Halter. Lee also stressed that all players would be “interchangeable at all positions as the flow of the game dictates.” Assisting Coach Lee this season will be former stand out Blue Jay players, Scott Bleile Jr. and Brook Riggleman at the varsity and J.V. level and Charles Michel will coach the Middle School team. In preseason scrimmages and a schedWoodbridge soccer continued the small number of younger players on the team. He is hopeful that number will increase in the future with 60 players signing up for middle school soccer this year. The Raiders have a pair of new goalies in senior Michael Rathbone and freshman Gilberto Villalobos. Getting his players to play together as a team is Bleile’s main concern heading into the season. Communication is also a key as two of Woodbridge’s players don’t speak English, so Bleile is learning how to communicate with them (his players are helping to translate).

uled play day at Parkside High School in Salisbury, Coach Lee will also bring up from the J.V. team four additional freshmen and one sophomore to “get a good look at them and test them against bigger opponent and a higher skill level,” he added. The Blue Jays open their season on Sept. 8 with a non-conference game against Salisbury School, followed by a home game against Laurel on Sept. 12th. Their first away game is at Cape Henlopen on Sept. 14. “We are anxious to get started in game conditions. The preseason practice sessions are long and hot and the players are ready for action. I am happy with their work ethic and attitude under these conditions. They are a very coachable group,” he concluded. Important time change:Woodbridge at Seaford on Thursday, Oct. 5 and Lake Forest at Seaford on Thursday, Sept. 21 will be varsity only starting at 6:00 p.m.

“They’ve worked hard. The will to win is there, it’s just translating it to the field,” said Bleile. He expects Caesar Rodney and Dover to be tough in the Henlopen North with Indian River and Seaford among the teams to beat in the South. Bleile believes his team can be in the mix if it plays together. This year Bleile is assisted by coach Lee Olmstead, a teacher at the high school. The Raiders open the season at St. Thomas More on Saturday before visiting Indian River. “We’re ready to roll. I’m looking forward to it,” Bleile said. “I’m cautiously optimistic.” RAIDERS SOCCERWoodbridge junior Derek Nennstiehl, shown during a Raider soccer practice is one of two returning allconference players for the Woodbridge boys’ soccer team this season.

The Laurel varsity boys’ soccer team, led by second year coach Clayton Hearn, is looking to build on last season which brought the program its first Henlopen Conference win. Gone from last year’s team(1-12-1 overall, 1-11-1 conference) is team captain Claudy Joinville, who was named first team Henlopen South and second team all-state. The Bulldogs returning players are junior David Bartee (defense) and sophomores Kyle Brown (forward), Lineker Valladares (midfield), and Jorge Lopez (goalie). The team’s newcomers include first year senior Ryan Bardowski (defense); sophomore Jamie Ruhl (forward); and freshmen Even Ceylan (forward) and Zack Hastings (forward). Hearn sees his team’s speed and desire to improve as its strengths. The Bulldogs’ lack of experience entering the season is a concern. The team is looking to work hard, focus on passing and playing a complete team game, and limit the number of shots on goal allowed on defense.

New Woodbridge field hockey coach looks for improvement

BETWEEN THE LINES By Gene Bleile, Seaford Sports Why did it take 67 years? Congratulations to the boys from Columbus, Ga. on their 2006 Little League World Series Championship last week in Williamsport, Pa. It was the second time in a row that a U.S. team won the championship and was also the first time since the 1992-1993 seasons for back-to-back American wins. That was big news. They knocked off a team from Japan in a thriller, 2-1. However, since little league was founded in 1939, by a gentleman named Carl Stotz, I am compelled to ask this question: Why did it take 67 years to institute a pitch count? With that thought in mind, I feel the biggest story out of Williamsport that week went basically unnoticed by most fans. Mr. Stephen Keener, President and CEO of little league and softball announced, “starting with the 2007 season, pitchers in all divisions of Little League from age 7 to 18, will have specific limits for each game based on their age. The number of pitches delivered in a game will determine the amount of rest the player must have before pitching again.” For example, a 10-year-old pitcher will be allowed only 75 pitches per day. Eleven and twelve year olds are only allowed 85 pitches, while 13-16 and 17-18 are allowed 95 and 105 pitches respectively. A minimum rest period is then assigned before pitching the next game. Research data and injury studies over the years have proven beyond a doubt that some coaches overworked pitchers arms and that long-term injury was a strong possibility. Dr. James Andrews, an expert in ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction or what is better known as Tommy John surgery, stressed that, “this is one of the most important steps ever initiated in youth baseball.” “It will serve as an injury prevention cornerstone to other youth organizations to get serious about injury prevention,” he added.

Mr. Keener also stressed, “we call upon all youth baseball organizations, including travel leagues to implement a pitch count to protect young pitching arms.” At the local level, as head coach of the Major League Phillies, I stood before the Seaford Little League coaches in 1996 with national injury research data in hand and tried to convince the league that a pitch count should be started in Seaford for the protection of young pitching arms. My idea was debated, criticized then rejected in about 20 minutes. I was actually surprised it only took that long to shoot it down. One coach that agreed with me that night is long time Seaford resident Alan Quillen, who has spent 26 years involved in little league, 18 as a board member. When asked about the recent press release, he said, “I am all for a mandatory pitch count. It will change the way coaches have to think and coach. Not only will it protect young arms, but will make coaches develop other players into pitchers at a young age.” He and I agree that the strategy of the game will change about pitching rotations. “I think it should have been implemented years ago, a lot of kids develop arm problems in later years,” he added. Kenny Cummings, Seaford varsity baseball coach agreed that a pitch count was a great idea at the lower levels also. “We always keep a pitch count on our pitchers at any level from middle school to the top varsity level,” he said. “We have to deal with cold weather in early practices, and try to build up the arms slowly for the season to prevent injury. A pitch count in Little League hopefully will develop more pitchers and protect young arms,” he stressed. So I ask one more time. Why did it take 67 years?

By Mike McClure The Woodbridge field hockey team will be guided by first year coach Kelly Davis who is a graduate of the school. Davis, who is assisted by Joanne Collison, coached varsity field hockey while attending college in Utah. “We’re developing. I’m new to this group of girls,” said Davis. The former all-conference player credits Seaford coach Robin Verdery with helping her get settled in to her new post. Davis inherits a young team from former coach Debbie Vanderwende. The 2006 squad features only three seniors and seven freshmen. Woodbridge’s Kelly Davis The Raiders’ returning players include: seniors Erika Knox (forward), Morgan Willey (back, midfield), and Sarah Swain (back); juniors Sarah Judy (forward), Melissa Wagner (midfield, back), and Chelsea Collison (midfield, forward); and sophomores Heather Solomon (forward) and Samantha Smith (midfield, back). The team’s newcomers include junior Meagan Rase (midfield, back); sophomores Angel Ruark (back) and Samantha Richey (midfield, forward); and freshmen Danielle Griffin (midfield, back), Liz Walk (midfield, back), Angela Fitze (goalie), Kelli Warner (midfield, back), Kyrra Lewandowski (forward, midfield, back), Kelsie Willey (back), and Melissa Rosado (back). With the loss of Leah Bowman (transfer to Seaford), Fitze will be asked to make the start in goal despite being a freshman. Davis sees the team’s sportsmanship, willingness to improve, and passion to play as its strengths. Although the team did not win a play day game, she was pleased with its progress and sportsmanship. “I think we’re getting better and better. They have a good outlook,” Davis said. “They have a great passion for it (hockey).” Davis expects her team to improve with each game and do the best it can each time out. The squad has already received a number of positive comments about its good sportsmanship at the Seaford Play Day games.

A view from the cheap seats By Mike McClure, Star Sports Editor A few weeks ago I was out at a local practice, waiting for the football team to arrive from a break so I could take some pictures of them. I was not alone, a group of people gathered to see their team in action. As the team marched in unison toward the practice field, their cleats pounding on the pavement, one lady exclaimed “I missed that sound”. I think she speaks for all the high school football fans, myself included. The 2006-07 fall sports season is here, with local football teams kicking off the season on Friday. Unfortunately all of out local teams are away this week, way far away. Some of the field hockey and soccer teams get under way this weekend with the rest of the teams starting next Tuesday. I’m not about to make predictions on which teams will do well. It’s not that making predictions are that difficult, they’re not. But even after talking to most of the local coaches and doing stories on the majority of the Western Sussex teams, I still can’t say with confidence which teams will be the teams to beat. That’s why they play the games. I probably talked to coaches of some teams that will struggle a little bit this year. They told me their teams are young and inexperienced. I also talked to the coaches of teams that will do well this season. They also told me their teams are young and inexperienced. I’ll let the so called experts stick their feet in their mouths. I will make this prediction, the Henlopen South will be very competitive in field hockey and football. I haven’t talked to enough coaches to be able to say the same about the local soccer teams, however, there have been some good local soccer teams coming from the area in the recent past.

College football- A pair of local grads shined on the college football fields last weekend. Laurel grad Anton Ridley had a 16-yard touchdown reception and hauled in four receptions for 56 yards in Villanova’s opening loss. Ridley’s high school classmate and good friend Eston Ennis had a fumble recovery in Wesley’s 41-14 win over Waynesburg. Sea-cats- Once again there are four Delmar grads on the Salisbury University field hockey team. The Sea Gulls, which are shooting for a fourth straight national championship, include senior Tracey Lloyd, Danielle Twilley, Kelly Lloyd, and Erin Keenan, all former Wildcats. Dawn Chamberlain’s assistant coaches are three Delmar and Salisbury grads: Erin Budd, Brittany Elliott, and Lindsey Elliott. Also on the team is Sussex Tech grad Lauren Correll of Bridgeville. Friendly foes- Last week’s wet weather caused some problems for the Delmar Pop Warner Football League. The teams were scheduled to host Woodbridge last Saturday, but the rain caused the game to be delayed. It was set to be played on Sunday, but the fields were unplayable. The Wildcats’ northern foes (Laurel) stepped up and allowed the teams to play on their fields. Delmar Pop Warner President Teri Klaverweiden e-mailed me and asked me to thank Laurel Pop Warner and Laurel High for their kindness. Quick hits- I received a program for the York College field hockey in the mail. Once I looked at the roster I saw why, Seaford grad Claire Rekitzke, a standout goalie in high school, is on the squad. I also received a request from Wesley College to join their varsity club/donate money. I’m sorry, I left my checkbook at home, yeah that’s the ticket.

Preview forms have not been received from the following teams: Delmar soccer, Sussex Tech football, and Seaford Christian volleyball and soccer

Health Names are important for caregivers and patients By Dr. Anthony Policastro Nanticoke Memorial Hospital Medical Director

“What’s in a name” is a famous quote. We often take names for granted. When we meet new people, we do not remember their names. When we hear a name on the phone, we often asked to have it spelled because we didn’t listen carefully the first time. Of course when the name is “John Smith” and you ask to have it spelled, you really sound like you are in sad shape. Medical care involves relationships. There are patients. There are caregivers. It is important for them to know each other’s names. Policastro is not an easy name to remember. Sometimes I introduce myself as Dr. Policastro. People then assume that my last name is Castro. If I tried the full name, people would wonder why I am bothering with my first name. I can’t win. If I need a patient to remember my name, I tell them to think about it as a “polar” bear chasing Fidel “Castro.” That makes it easier to remember. When I was in the Air Force, I was just Dr P. That was easier still. Patients need to know the name of their caregiver. That is true if it is their physician. That is true if it is a nurse. That is true if it is someone drawing his or her blood. That is true if it is the receptionist that answers the phone. That is a basic expectation. Patients usually know the name of their physicians. However, it is a little harder when there are multiple caregivers. That is true in the hospital setting. It is almost like going to a party and meeting many people. It is hard to remember all those names. It

It is sometimes hard to remember which patients you have introduced yourself to in the past. So sometimes you assume that you have done so. Then you do not introduce yourself. In those situations, you come across as rude. takes a little effort. When I meet a patient, I will them my name. If I introduce myself every time that I see them after that, they will think that I do not remember them. It is sometimes hard to remember which patients you have introduced yourself to in the past. So sometimes you assume that you have done so. Then you do not introduce yourself. In those situations, you come across as rude. So you either look like you have a poor memory or look like you are rude. It is not an easy task. There should be an expectation that patients will be addressed by name. That may be by first and last name. It may be by Mr. or Mrs. with the last name. It might just be by first name. Using only a first name is more common in pediatrics. Physicians see a lot of patients. Many times a medical record is needed to help jog the memory. There are some patients they know well. In these cases, it is easy to recognize the patient and call them by name. Other patients are not seen quite as often. Knowing their names without a record there becomes more difficult. Again the

PSA screenings at NMH Nanticoke Health Services will provide PSA screenings on Friday, Sept. 28. The blood tests will be offered at the Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center * 1st Floor, adjacent to the hospital from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m. The fee for the test will be $5. Results will be mailed approximately two weeks after the event. Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring cancer in men. Between 1980 and 1990, prostate cancer incidence increased 65 percent. It is believed that this increase was the result of improved early detection. There is expected to be a further increase related to the use of the prostate specific antigen blood test. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a substance that is produced by the prostate gland. Men normally have a small amount of this substance in the blood. PSA levels differ according to age and tend to rise after the age of 60. PSA can be affected by several conditions in the prostate such as the normal enlargement in the prostate, which occurs with aging. Infection or inflammation and surgery to the prostate can also cause increased levels. There is no specific level of PSA that tells whether prostate

cancer is present; however the higher the level, the more likely it is that cancer may be developing. Nanticoke Memorial Hospital encourages men over the age of 50 to take advantage of this service. If you are 40-years-old and at high risk of developing this cancer you are also encouraged to participate. African-American men are at high risk for developing prostate cancer, as are men who have a family history of the disease. For additional information on the PSA screening contact the Cancer Care Center at 302-6296611, ext. 2588.

Delaware’s Division of Public Health orders antiviral drugs Delaware’s Division of Public Health (DPH) has ordered through the federal subsidy program enough antiviral drugs to treat 85,902 Delawareans in a human flu pandemic. This is the maximum amount the state can acquire through a cost share program with the federal government whereby the state contributes 75 percent of the negotiated discounted costs. Additionally, DPH has requested to purchase another 6,677 courses (amount to treat 6,677 people) of antivirals should other states opt out of the subsidy program. The federal government is also stockpiling antiviral medications for each state, and plans to acquire 55,420 courses in 2006 and 66,505 in 2007 for Delawareans. Tallying the planned federal stockpile for Delaware, previously ordered antivirals and the amount from the subsidy program, Delaware expects to stockpile enough antivirals to treat 30 percent of the state’s population, or 243,089 people. This quantity exceeds treatment needs estimated by the World Health Organization that 25 percent of the population may become ill from a pandemic. The antiviral medications ordered include Tamiflu and Relenza which are considered effective for treatment and prevention for influenza. Seriously ill flu patients who receive antivirals may not develop disease complications such as pneumonia. In a pandemic, Delaware’s antiviral stockpile should be sufficient to

treat the number of ill persons but there is not enough antivirals for prevention. The current priority outlined in the State of Delaware Pandemic Influenza Response Plan is to treat ill people first and use antivirals for disease prevention whenever possible for containment - particularly during the initial outbreak. To read the plan, go to “The commitment of Gov. Minner and the General Assembly to provide the $1.4 million state cost share was critical to securing antivirals for Delawareans,” said Dr. Jaime Rivera, DPH director. “Securing the maximum amount of antivirals for Delawareans is one part of our public health preparedness strategy for a pandemic,” said Emily Falone, DPH Chief of Public Health Preparedness. Other Delaware efforts underway include stockpiling equipment and supplies such as ventilators, expanding the current capacity of hospitals to accommodate patients and beginning an education program for businesses, schools, and others. DPH works with hospitals, emergency management agencies, food suppliers, law enforcement and others to improve the state’s preparedness status. Delaware Health and Social Services is committed to improving the quality of the lives of Delaware’s citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency and protecting vulnerable populations.

Child Support Month kicks off with new initiatives A new record was set in 2005 of $96 million collected On Thursday Aug. 31, Chuck Hayward, Delaware Health and Social Services’ director of the Division of Child Support Enforcement, read a proclamation on behalf of Gov. Minner declaring September Child Support Month in Delaware. The event took place at the Churchman’s Road Child Support headquarters. Director Hayward announced other events and activities that will take place during Child Support Month, including an event

to unveil the Most Wanted Poster Campaign and details of the increased enforcement measures to be taken on non-custodial parents with a warrant for not paying their child support. “We continue to do well in collecting money for the children of Delaware (a new record was set in 2005 of $96 million collected) but we realize it isn’t all about dollars and cents. Parents are important for reasons other than financial ones. First, the child needs to know who their parents are. Acknowledging paternity is a critical step in the process of building a relationship with your child that lasts a lifetime,” says Hayward. “I am proud of the success we’ve had and we will continue to push for aggres-

sive and innovative reforms that will help single parents gain the resources they need to provide their children the childhood they deserve,” said Hayward. “Child Support Month represents an opportunity to salute parents who support their children emotionally and financially and honor the child support professionals across the state who are committed to making a difference in the lives of children through their work.,” he adds. Getting unmarried parents to sign a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) for their child at the time of birth is something that the division will promote throughout the state during Child Support Month. When a father and mother sign the VAP

in the hospital, both parents will be named on the child’s birth certificate. The benefits of having the father’s name on the birth certificate are numerous; it • Provides access to medical benefits for the child. • Protects a child’s rights to Veteran’s, Social Security and inheritance benefits. • Allows the child to access family medical history. • Gives the child the emotional benefit of knowing the identity of both parents. • Begins to build the bond for a lasting relationship. DCSE will work closely with local hospitals to help educate parents about Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity and other methods of paternity establishment.

Free DNA paternity testing in all three counties During the week of Sept. 18-22, the Division of Child Support Enforcement will offer Free DNA/Paternity testing in our New Castle, Kent and Sussex County offices. LabCorp will be on-site to perform the free testing using a swab to collect DNA from the inner cheek of each person being tested. Before coming to the office, the mother and father must talk and agree to show up along with the child for testing. If everyone cannot come at the same time for

testing, arrangements can be made during the week by contacting one of our offices. We encourage those who have not yet established the paternity of the child(ren) to take advantage of this opportunity for free paternity testing and provide your child with the benefits it offers. Our office locations and telephone numbers are listed below. Feel free to call or stop in for additional information and/or receive testing Sept. 18-22, during the times mentioned above:

Particulars concerning the Special Election are contained in a Resolution of the City Council of the City of Seaford which was passed at a meeting held on August 22, 2006, a copy of which is as follows: Whereas, pursuant to a Resolution adopted by the City Council of the City of Seaford, a committee appointed by the Mayor of the City of Seaford according to the requirements of Section 2 of the Charter of the City of Seaford, as amended, recommend in its report that certain territory located contiguous to the present corporate limits of the City of Seaford be annexed.

Whereas, in the opinion and judgment of the individual members of the City Council, no cause has been shown why the territory located and contiguous to the present corporate limits of the City of Seaford should not be annexed and it positively appearing that said territory should be annexed in the event that a majority of the duly qualified electors in the City of Seaford and in the territory proposed to be annexed shall approve for.

And Be It Further Resolved, that the City Manager of the City of Seaford is hereby authorized and directed to cause a notice which shall consist of a true copy of this Resolution to be printed in a newspaper published in the City of Seaford and having a general circulation both in the City of Seaford and in the territory proposed to be annexed in its issues published within thirty (30) days immediately preceding the date of Special Election; And Be It Further Resolved, that at the Special Election, every resident and property owner, whether individual, a partnership, or a corporation in the City of Seaford and in the territory proposed to be annexed shall have one (1) vote; provided, however, that a person who owns property both in the City of Seaford and in the territory proposed to be annexed and resides in either place may vote only where he resides; and provided further that a person who owns property both in the City of Seaford and in the territory proposed to be annexed, but does not reside in either place may vote only in the territory proposed to be annexed. And Be It Further Resolved, that an individual owning a duly executed Power of Attorney of another person or if a firm or corporation specifically authorizing the said individual to vote at the said Special Election, a duly authenticated copy of which has been filed in the Office of the City Manager of the City of Seaford, shall be entitled to cast the vote of said person, firm or corporation; And Be It Further Resolved, that the City Manager of the City of Seaford be and she is hereby authorized and directed to cause to be printed at least five (5) days prior to the date of said Special Election a sufficient number of ballot, the form of said ballot as follows: OFFICIAL BALLOT - THE CITY OF SEAFORD THIS BALLOT CASTS ONE (1) VOTE (Attached Hereto) And Be It Further Resolved, that the purpose of legally conducting this said Special Election on the 18th day of September 2006, providing two (2) ballots, one for those persons, firms or corporations who are authorized to vote as residents and property owners of the City of Seaford and one for those persons, firms, or corporations who are authorized to vote as residents and property owners of the territory proposed to be annexed, determined who is and who is not lawfully qualified to vote there at, taking reasonable steps to see that the law pertaining to said Special Election receives compliance, and for the purpose of counting the votes and certifying the results of said Special Election to the City Council of the City of Seaford, Ernest Makowski is hereby appointed as the presiding officer of the Board of Special Elections, Charles Butler is hereby appointed as the resident and property owner residing in the City of Seaford, and Andy Strine, Rex Mears, Steven Yingling, Doug Corey and Tuong Quan are hereby appointed as the residents or property owners in the territory(s) proposed to be annexed.

✳ SEPTEMBER 7 - 13, 2006


Letters to the Editor Do you like living in a small town? There is an annexation election scheduled for September 18 at City Hall that will affect each and every one of the readers of this paper, whether you live in or near Seaford. The proposed annexation, if approved, would add some 706.4 acres of land, north of Seaford into the City limits. The proposed annexation is to bring this property into the City zoned as R-3, High density residential and/or Light Industrial. Do you know how many potential households this could bring into the City? At 18 units per acre, it could total over 12,715 dwelling units! The current population of Seaford is estimated at 6500. If passed, this annexation could raise the population to 38,288 (based on 2.5 people per household). That is IF they are able to sell all of the units. These figures do not take into consideration the alreadyannexed properties on both sides of Sussex Highway which are in the process of development at this time. Are you ready to grow this much? I am a part of a group that calls ourselves “H.A.P.P.E.N.” which stands for Hearns Pond Association for its Protection, Preservation, Enhancement and Naturalization. WHY did we form? We want to preserve the history, the beauty, the livability and the natural wonders that are inherent to the lifestyle the area offers. What happens in and around Hearns Pond happens to every property downstream, including Beaver Dam, Williams Pond, the Nanticoke River and even the Chesapeake Bay! We have already sustained too much damage. We must make sure future development is well thought out and storm management problems are properly addressed. It is important to understand the history of the area. The mill on Hearn’s Pond was called the Hearn & Rawlins Flour Mill because the ownership of the mill had remained in the hands of the Hearn and Rawlins families since 1885. Before Hearn’s Pond even existed, the original mill was built in the mid-1800s on Herring Creek, just below Clear Brooke. The original mill, known as Cannon’s & Ross Mill, burnt in 1879 and was subsequently rebuilt. The waters that were harnessed by the mill, coming from Clear Brooke, formed what is now known as Hearn’s Pond. The mill was listed on 5/22/78 in the National Register of Historic places. It was the only water-powered mill of this type in operation in the State of Delaware for years. This historic landmark is the home of “White Dove” flour. I believe all of us have eaten the world’s best pie crusts and slippery dumplings made from White Dove flour, not to mention the corn meal that was used in the Rapa Brand scrapple we grew up eating. I grew up in Seaford. I played on the Ross Mansion property, swam in Hearns Pond, bought my appliances at Burton Brothers, attended Seaford schools, got married and raised a family here. I worked for the City of Seaford for almost 10 years. My parents owned and operated Glennco Mary Carter Paint Store on Middleford Road for years, and I worked with them, building a business in our com-

munity. I was a member of the PTA, the Jaycee Pool, and have patronized the Town and Country Fair, Riverfest, and our Halloween Parades. Why, I even put on the Christmas Parade in 1982 because the Jaycees gave it up and we weren’t going to have a parade. I have worked for the Seaford School District for over 15 years, and hope to do so for many more. What I am trying to say is that I am a Seaford girl through and through. I am one of you. I share your values and the love of our great community and the commitment to be a part of the growth and the maintenance of its unique attributes. I still believe it is one of the ‘Best Small Towns in America’, and I pray it will always remain the quality community we know and love. No doubt, Seaford has been growing and our City leaders have a plan, a plan to help Seaford grow, expand and improve. We, your neighbors in the Hearns Pond and surrounding areas, would like to be a part of the growth and the plans for the development. We would like to see positive growth, but we do not want to see growth at the expense of our current residents. We see development as a continuation of Seaford’s ‘All American’ image: Maintaining Seaford’s standards; in keeping with other neighborhoods within our community. We see developing a neighborhood we all can be proud of while still maintaining our sense of history and longevity. We want to be GOOD NEIGHBORS. WHERE IS SEAFORD NOW? Seaford IS a thriving, growing, ‘All American’ town. Seaford has personality and is made up of a diverse spectrum of neighborhoods, people and lifestyles. We are rich in architecture, history, and eclectic neighborhoods. We want our area to be developed with that kind of foresight, planning and enthusiasm. We want to know the plan is good and well thought out. We want our neighbors to love the area as we do—for many years to come. We want our children to be able to look at the newly developed area in 20 or 30 years and be proud of our community and neighbors. I care about Seaford, her heritage, her beauty and her simplicity. I am afraid if this annexation passes, with R-3 High Density Residential zoning, we will see growth that will adversely affect our entire community. A large portion of the property in the proposed annexation cannot presently have homes built on it because it won’t even perk. What will happen to the storm water when the majority of it is covered by housing, roads and sidewalks? Where will the water go then? We have seen what happens, even before the proposed growth, to our waterways and properties because of the lack of proper planning by the planners and developers in our community. We cannot allow it to continue to get out of control and destroy the area we have chosen as our home. I encourage you to consider a NO vote during the annexation election on September 18. We cannot allow the development to run rampant and to force us into a lifestyle where there are too many people and cars, where we sit in traffic for hours to and from work and cannot get from one side of town to the other. We are being asked to pay too big of a price. Who will

move here and occupy these dwellings? I ask you – are we inviting in the people who are trying to get away from the congestion and overcrowding in Baltimore and Washington, just to invite those conditions into our peaceful community? I say NO, and I hope you will vote NO on September 18. I like living in a small town. How BIG do you want to be? Not six times the current population! Susan B. Messick Seaford

The Delaware Red Hat Society members website growing fast Delaware RHS members’ website is growing fast. In less than five months the site is host to 62 members and 201 postings by those members. Any official Red Hat member can join by contacting me at and completing a short registration form. I check each member to be sure that they are an official member of the Red Hat Society, which is the reason for the registration form. I also moderate the website for correct information postings. The site is primarily for Delaware official Red Hat Chapter members to share information, items of interest, and the notification of events for sisterhood and fun. I have created this site to be used as an open forum of communication throughout Delaware and the surrounding states. It is free to join and free for postings. By joining, a Red Hatter will be able to access

the latest Red Hat Chapter events that are posted in Delaware and the surrounding states of New Jersey, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. I am also delighted to invite all Red Hat Women of any official Red Hat Chapter into the website. There is a calendar for listing special events, and sharing photos. Anyone who has their own special website is encouraged to post items of interest. I embrace the concept of a Total Information Network It continues to be my belief that communication is the key to all Red Hat Fun everywhere! In no way is this website to seek to replace the official Red Hat Society website or its QM Board but to be an extension of it. To find out more about the Red Hat Society go to I recently held a large event called a “Hoot” at the Spirit of Philadelphia. There were 400 Red Hat Women from Delaware and the surrounding states. I will be planning future events from time to time and everyone who belongs to the site will be well informed. My latest project is for the celebration of Lewes’ 375 anniversary. Red Hat members from four states will be coming to Lewes on September18 to celebrate by shopping, lunch, teas and historical tours. For more information about this event go to and click on the Red Hat. BJ Young Lewes

Letters to the Editor Brian McAllister progress update

We are so happy to pass on to you that Brian is getting better. First, we would like to fill you in on what has taken place in Brian’s life over the past 22 months. On Sept. 27, 2005 Brian McAllister, age 46, was diagnosed with terminal Lung Cancer that had spread to four of his vertebrae. There were several other suspect spots in bones and lymph nodes. The doctors offered no hope, with 12 months to live. Brian lost his job of 28 years and all benefits. Since Brian was never a smoker and was in good condition doctors decided to try six weeks of radiation along with Chemotherapy. They did not expect the cancer to shrink. To their amazement the cancer began to shrink. Brian had been receiving Chemotherapy for 12 months when complications with fluid around the heart and lung began. Chemotherapy was stopped. A heart drain was performed which was successful. The fluid around the lung was drained off only to return in just three days. In November 2005 doctors decided to insert a chest tube to remove the fluid from around the lung. The surgeon accidentally lacerated Brian’s lung during the procedure. Brian was rushed to ICU where he was in a fight for his life. His wife was told they had done everything they could, but nothing was working. Brian and his wife Corinnia have an unshakable faith in Jesus Christ. Two friends came to the hospital at midnight after Corinnia called them concerning Brian’s serious condition. After 2-1/2 hours of prayer Brian began to stabilize. The last 10 months have been tough for Brian.

The interesting thing in talking with Brian is that he will inspire you! No matter how much it hurt he kept walking, no matter how weak he felt he kept walking, no matter how tired he was he kept on praying and believing. He just never gave up. He is a man of faith and gives Christ all the credit for his improved health. He will quickly tell you just how much the prayers offered up to Christ on his behalf have made a difference. The latest CT Scan shows no visible tumor in the lung! The last bone scan showed no cancer left in the spine! Brian is on the road to getting better. Brian said, “God’s word says in Jeremiah 30:17 — I will restore health to you and heal you of all your wounds, and I believe it!” Last year’s fund raiser was a big success, but more help is needed. The Cobra payments alone are $1,006 a month. We are asking you to join us in our fund raising efforts by contacting your friends and family and asking them to help. A website has been created to keep people informed about Brian’s progress and The Brian McAllister Cancer Fund. To make it easy for you we have included a “Recommend this Site” button which is located at the bottom left hand corner of the web page. Please visit the web site at home.earthlink. net/-b.mcallisterfund/. We believe that this will be a very cost effective way to raise awareness and funds.

I want to explain the policy the Star newspapers is following regarding our coverage of this year’s Election. Our staff is comprised of members of both major political parties along with at least two Independents. We are careful to be fair to all political persuasions. We do not take our responsibilities to the public or the candidates lightly. Part of our purpose is to encourage a high voter turnout. After living through the ordeal of the 2000 Presidential Election, we are keenly aware of the importance of every vote. Another important purpose we fulfill is to inform readers about the positions of the candidates on some of the most important issues. We plan to publish an “Issues and Answers” section prior to the November Election. All of the candidates will be given an opportunity to respond. Here are some of our other Election policy guidelines: • Upon filing for office, we will allow any candidate an opportunity to announce his or her candidacy and to briefly state his or her positions in an initial news release. • Elected officials have an advantage over challengers. Some office holders like to remind us that they were the “driving force” behind efforts to bring improvements to the area. The closer to the election they can announce their accomplishments, the better for their campaigns. For at least a few weeks prior to the election we will not be reporting on those types of “news” events. (When we send our tax dollars to Dover or to Washington, D.C., we expect to get something back no matter who is holding the office.) • We will not be attending as representatives of the newspaper political fund raising events. We will not report on them. If you see one of us at a fundraising event, we are there for personal reasons. Our staff members are free to attend any such events, but should not be expected to report on them. • We will not be attending “news conferences” that serve only to explain positions or to detail qualifi-

The moon, and its relative distance to the Earth, affects tides on a monthly basis. When the moon is farthest from the Earth (apogee), tides of decreased range or currents of decreased speed occur. When the moon is closest to the Earth (perigee), the occurrence of increased range or currents of speed is more prevalent.
