JuneRose Futcher Lewes Morethan a handshake in Maryland game At the Nov. i coin toss cer- emony before the game between the Maryland Terrapins and the Penn State Nittany Lions, the Maryland team captains refused to shake hands with their Penn State counterparts. The hand- shake has been a long-standing tradition. It's a demonstration of good sportsmanship and respect for the respective opponents. It's way more than a handshake. Maryland received a 15-yard penal for unsportsmanlike condt ct. That's it...15 measly yards.jI realize that it was in all probability the extent of what the officials could do. It's Mary- land h ad coach Randy Edsall's response that is the real issue. He did nothing. No big deal. Let the game begin. But it is a big deal. Coaches, athletic directors and talking head sportscasters always crow about football being more than a Sport, it's an encapsula- tion of life; it builds character; it molds our future leaders; and it instills discipline and maturity in the players. Randy Edsall's nonresponse brought to light his hypocrisy. The coach's nonac- tion demonstrates deep down he doesn't really have the best interest of his players at heart. He blew a golden opportunity to impart to every member of his team perhaps life's most valuable lesson. Your actions have conse- quences. Instead, he did nothing. At the very least, to my way of thinking, Edsall should have sat his team captains on the bench and told them to sit there throughout the entire first quar- ter. It just might have been one of the most valuable lessons he will impart to them as their coach. Bad actions can have particularly bad consequences. But instead, after the game, Edsall did nothing. He merely apologized for his team captains' display of lack of good character and maturity, as well as arrogance and disrespect. "That's not the way we want our kids to be," Edsall said. "I want to apologize. That was not orches- trated or choreographed." So the fact still remains - He did nothing. If Coach Edsall was not in any way complicit in the incident, then it shouldn't have been him apologizing. It should have been his players who were involved making the apology. But in to- day's world, prima donnas always get a pass. Steve Hyle Lewes Matt Haley's employees made him proud On Sept. 13, Delaware Tech working with the Sussex Cyclists, sponsored the Tour DE Sussex Bike ride in which riders could opt to ride 25, 62 or 100 miles through beautiful, scenic Sus- sex County. This was achieved through the efforts of many volunteers. Everyone involved is owed a big thank you. Because of all you, the event was a great success. However, a special men- tion is due to the employees of Papa Grandes in Fenwick Island. It is owned by Matt Haley, who before his untimely death, was happy to sponsor the ride. He of- fered Papa Grande's as a rest stop for all of those bikers who chose to ride the grueling 100 miles. Vera Wright and I arrived to staff the rest stop only to discover that the truck delivering snacks and drinks to refresh the riders for the last leg of their journey was run- ning a bit late. We went into the restaurant to explain our dilemma and the em- ployees immediately stepped up. They provided a table and beauti- ful platters of fresh fruit cut into bite-size pieces. This would tide us over until the truck arrived. I was struck with the remembrance of Matt Haley, who always went out of his way to help so many others in the community. He evidently trained his employees to do the same. And they didn't let him down. As one of the volunteers of this great event and on behalf of the riders, I personally want to send a very special thank you to the employees of Papa Grande's in Fenwick Island. I know you made Matt proud. Brenda Sims Milton Just Us appreciates fundraiser support The volunteers of lust Us Cat and Kitten Rescue would like to thank all those who came out Sept. 28 to 1776 Steakhouse for our annual fundraiser. It was our most successful event, with over 150 people attending. Without the help and support of Tom Holmes and the entire staff at 1776 we would never have achieved our goal of raising $5,000; we met it and exceeded it. We can't thank Tom enough for providing a room for our silent auction and for giving Just Us a percentage of sales for the evening. Many wonderful meals were served in a relatively short period of time, a testimony to the hard work by Tom and his wait, bar and kitchen staff; we look forward to having our event at 1776 next year. The evening included a 50/50 raffle, won by Rose Karaka of Purr-Fectly Thrifty. Rose gener- ously and graciously returned her winnings to us. The raffle alone brought in over $1,000. A silent auction was also held, and for the first time every item received a bid. We would like to thank all those who provided items for the auction; they in- elude: Tom Ibach of Candy by the Sea and Dolle's, Pirates of Lewes Expedition, Purr-Fectly Thrifty, Concord Pet, Pet Depot, Robert Thomas Salon, Wash and Wag, Big Fish Grill, and Too- tie's Poop Patrol. The following individuals also provided items: DebraFolsom, Pat Riordan, Anne Jenkins, Lindy DiMeo and Mike McShane, Bernadette Pflanz, Sandy and Gene Hoffman, Nancy VanDyke, Linda Yinst, Steve Palmer, Grant Kingswell, Sharon Lachman, Carol Roberts and Cyndi Myers.
