Re 14 TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 18- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2008 - "CAP I= UF I: cpe Giette Easy As Pie AIDS fundraiser order deadline is Nov. 21 The Delaware HIV Consor- tium and Ministry of Caring, two leaders in housing and care for people living with HIV/AIDS, will ontinue their collaborative efforts to stage this year's fifth annual Easy As Pie fundraiser. The Easy As Pie fundraiser is simple - for each $20 donation, participants will receive a pie of their choice tO share at their Thanksgiving table. All proceeds help the Delaware HIV Consor- tium and the Ministry of Caring provide housing services to Delawareans living with HIV/AIDS. Aside from medical care and therapy adherence, permanent and affordable housing is the most influential issue in stabiliT- hag the health and improving the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS. Currently there are more than 325 people onthe waiting list for the Delaware HIV Consortium's homing assistance program, and clients spend an average of four years on the wait list. Seventy-two percent of the consortium's clients who receive rental assistance report that they would be homeless or in unsta- ble housing if not for the help they receive. The Delaware HIV Consor- tium and the Ministry of Caring are dedicated to providing hous- ing to the state's HIV communi- ty. The Delaware HIV Consor- tium provides housing assistance vouchers to 150 households, as- sisting more than 350 individuals and families. The Ministry of Caring's House of Joseph II pro- vides a home and medical care for 16 individuals in the advanced stages of AIDS. Pies can be or- dered by calling the Delaware HIV Consortium at 302-654-5471 or by visiting the Delaware HIV Consortium's website, delaware- hiv.org. Orders must be received by Friday, Nov. 21, at noon. Printed order forms are also available to be mailed or faxed to the Delaware HIV Consortium. To request a printed brochure, call the Delaware HIV Consortium at the number listed above. Linvilla Orchards, located in Media, Pa., will again provide this year's selection of Dutch Ap- ple Crumb, lhxmpkin, Pecan and No Sugar Added Apple pies, as well as a two-pound, eight-inch New York Style Cheesecake. Just Desserts by Jekeitta, located in the New Castle Farmers Market, will bake up its Sweet Potato pie. Also helping out with this Portrait Continued from page 13 ing - baling hay, doing barn work and learning how to man- age stallions," he said. Through three summers of lifeguarding, he worked to devel- op a herd of sport horses, breed- ing thoroughbred mares to warmblood stallions and raising the young horses. Warmbloods are large, athletic riding horses, originating in Europe. They are used in many equestrian sports. He spent many weekend days at a farm in Chestertown, Md., helping with breed inspections and foals. "I learned a lot about the characteristics desirable for horse conformation and the dif- ference between what a German thinks is a good horse and what an American thinks is a good horse," he said. From highly dis- criminating German breed in- spectors who arrive inthe Unit- ed States each spring to inspect and approve foals - each animal must display Certain physical form and characteristics to win awards - he gained an eye for quality young horses. Those summer work days earned Makowski valuable con- tacts with some of the nation's promising equestrians, including Eiren Crawford, a dressage train- er who has just left the country to work alongside a well-re- spected German trainer. Rehoboth Continued from page 13 "For me personally, it's gratify- ing," Bonville said. "Yes we can in West Rehoboth. Yes we can come together. Yes we can do things to help make this commu- nity a better place, so that people no longer have the stigma that West Rehoboth is a drug place, It's not a drug place. That's the message we're trying to get out, 'West Rehoboth: A Fresh New Beginning."' As a biotechnology major at James Madison University, he worked at a farm of 30 riding horses, where he established his place training and competing young horses. Along with the valuable expe- rience gained from many rides on unpredictable young horses, Alex found a new partner in Hope. HIS fst horse, Banner, found another home in V'wginia and Hope returned to Delaware with Makowski last winter. He leased a farm in Milford and, during a semester between James Madison University and the University of Delaware, ex- panded his repertoire with hors- es: Mixing class work with two restaurant jobs and riding, he al- so worked at a breeding farm in Ellendale, learning the freer points of breeding management and the latest technology in- volved in artificial breeding, in- cluding lab work and ultra- sonography. Now in Newark, he is balanc- ing his horse life with agricul- ture and natural resources coursework and intramural sports. He said he is looking for- ward to competing with Hope in the coming year, but he isn't ready to pin down riding as a fu- ture career. "IfI chose eventing as a ca- reer, I would be doing itso I could help change the sport. It can be pretentious, and in some aspects, it's still an elitist sport," he said. Eventing can also be danger- ous, and its image has been tar- nished by serious rider injuries and several horse deaths in the last year. He said the sport can clean up its act by becoming more spectator-friendly and ap- pearing more like a sport open to the average rider, not only the wealthy. He is still devoted to young horses. Following in the foot- steps of his late aunt, Chris Makowski, one of the first women admitted to th e Cornell University veterinary school, Makowski will be volunteering at the neonatal intensive care unit at the New Bolton Center, the large animal hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
