Delmarva Power Advises Customers to Beware of

“Green Dot” Phone Scam

SALISBURY, Md. — Delmarva Power reminds customers to practice safety when someone claiming to represent the utility company contacts them either in person or by telephone.

Delmarva Power has been alerted to a resurgence of the “Green Dot” scam. Scammers are telling customers that their electric service account is delinquent and they will be shut off for non-payment unless customers purchase “Green Dot Money Pack” prepaid cards for a specific amount from stores such as CVS, Rite Aid and Wawa.

Scammers will often use a “shadow” or “800” call-back phone number. In some instances, the scammers are using technology to have the Delmarva Power “800” customer service number appear on the telephone’s caller ID feature. When customers call the shadow number, the scammers answer claiming to be affiliated with Delmarva Power.

Victims are given instructions to call a phony scammer phone number with the cards’ account and personal identification numbers. Once the scammer obtains the cards’ information, the value is downloaded, swept and stolen. These transactions are untraceable.

Delmarva Power will contact customers in person or via phone for various reasons. If someone claims to represent Delmarva Power, it is important that customers take precautions to verify the person is affiliated with the company, especially if that person is requesting an immediate monetary payment.

If customers have any doubt about the validity of a person’s claim to represent Delmarva Power, they should hang up, call the company immediately at 1-800-375-7117 and an official company representative will assist them.

When addressing past due accounts, Delmarva Power never endorses a specific form of payment. Instead, multiple payment options are always given to customers.

Delmarva Power advises customers to ask for official photo identification from any person who shows up at their door. Delmarva Power employees carry official company identification cards. If proper identification cannot be produced, customers should notify police and Delmarva Power.

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – This week’s Hawk Talk edition features news from men’s & women’s basketball, bowling, cross country, track & field, and more.

Good luck to all students this week for final exams! Go Hawks!

MEN’S BASKETBALL

Last Monday (12/01), the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) Men’s Basketball senior forward Mike Myers (Camden, N.J.) was named UMES Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) Athlete of the Week, alongside women’s basketball Alexis Udoji, for his efforts against Detroit, Bucknell, and Fordham. Myers led the way in the three games, scoring over 20 points in two-out-of-the-three contests.

The following day (12/02), the squad easily defeated UMBC, 65-52, sparked by an 18-0 run in the first half. Three Hawks scored at least double digits, led by Devon Walker (Philadelphia, Pa.) with 16 points.

On Dec. 3, senior guard Ishaq Pitt (Brooklyn, N.Y.), was nominated to the 2015 Allstate NABC Good Works Team, a prestigious national award dedicated to honoring those student-athletes with a superior commitment to community service. Pitt was one of 158 Division I men’s basketball players nominated, along with 93 women’s basketball players, across the country.

Two days later (12/05), the Hawks lost a tightly contested game to the defending Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) champions, North Carolina Central (NCCU), 68-63. Myers finished with 18 points, including the Hawks’ last eleven.

Tonight (12/08), UMES will host North Carolina A&T. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. as part of a doubleheader with both men’s and women’s basketball.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

On Dec. 1, women’s basketball junior forward Alexis Udoji (Randolph, Mass.) earned UMES PRMC Athlete of the Week, along with men’s basketball Mike Myers, for her performance against Cheyney (Pa.). Udoji picked up her third double-double in the victory, 11 points and 11 boards.

On the same day (12/01), the MEAC announced its weekly honors for the week of November 17 through 23 and Udoji took home Co-Defensive Player of the Week honors. Udoji totaled 16 rebounds and nine blocked shots against Marshall and VCU.

Last Wednesday (12/03), the club defeated Mount St. Mary’s for the first time in the program’s history, 58-43. Junior Taryana Kelly (North Brunswick, N.J.) notched first career double-double in the win over the Mount.

On Dec. 6, the Lady Hawks won their MEAC opener by defeating NCCU, 71-61. Senior guards Jessica Long (Fort Washington, Md.) and Shawnee Sweeney (Chester, Va.) led the squad, combining for 25 points.

This evening (12/08), the Lady Hawks host MEAC preseason favorite North Carolina A&T to wrap up their four-game home stand. Game-time is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., followed by the men approximately 30 minutes afterwards.

BOWLING

On Dec. 7-8, the women’s bowling team went a perfect 10-0 at the MEAC Northern Division Meet in Millsboro, Del and improved to 20-0 in conference play. On the first day (12/07), the Hawks won all five contests, led by Mariana Alvarado (Leon, Mexico). Alvarado was in All-American form with a 229 average. The next day (12/08), UMES duplicated their performance with another 5-0 mark. Furthermore, the team set a school record for a high game in five-game Bakers.

UMES returns to the lanes January 16-18, 2015 at the Mid-Winter Classic, hosted by Arkansas State.

CROSS COUNTRY

Last Monday (12/01), members of the town council of Princess Anne, headed by Garland Hayward, issued a proclamation to Cross Country Head Coach Ernest Barrett by honoring the achievements of his team as a whole and for several athletes individually. Included in the proclamation are the Hawks’ victory in the MEAC Championship and the naming of sophomores Khalil Rmidi Kinini (Malaga, Spain) and Barbora Blahutova (Slavkov, Czech Republic) as the conference’s outstanding performers.

Other UMES athletes present at the ceremony included freshmen Nelson Kimutai (Eldoret, Kenya) and Stanley Meli (Eldoret, Kenya); sophomores Justin Atkins (Washington, D.C.) and Nassor Whitehead (Sunrise, Fla.) and junior Mark Tuwei (Eldoret, Kenya).

The team wrapped up the cross country season with the 2014 MEAC Men’s Cross Country Championship.

TRACK & FIELD

On Dec. 2, the women’s track & field team competed in the United States Naval Academy Invitational and took second place in the event. Sophomore Alexis Dailey (Huntingtown, Md.) scored seven of the team’s 24 points.

Last Saturday (12/06), several members of the men’s track & field team took part in the same event. Sophomore Jared Kerr (Brampton, Ontario, Canada) and senior Dillon Simon (Roseau, Dominica) secured victories in their respective events while Kinini broke his own school record in the 3000 meter run.

On Jan. 3, both teams return to host the UMES HS/Collegiate Invite.

ONE IN FOUR STRUGGLES WITH MENTAL ILLNESS NEEDLESSLY

ONE IN FOUR OF US STRUGGLES WITH MENTAL ILLNESS NEEDLESSLY

             According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, at any given time one in four Americans is grappling with a mental health issue.  No matter whether it is depression, anxiety, panic attacks, or any of a legion of brain disorders, the results can immobilize someone, preventing them from enjoying the things they once enjoyed, and tempting them with self-destructive behaviors.

It’s like a shortstop whose finger is broken by a sliding base runner.  The injury can be traumatic, career-ending.

The ballplayer will go immediately to the doctor, be treated, follow a rehab regimen, and be back on the field.  But fewer than half with mental health issues seek treatment, even though in most cases treatment can return the sufferer to a happy and productive life.

Why do we differentiate between physical health and mental health in such a way that treatment for the former is routinely accepted, but for the latter is discouraged or even forbidden?  Because stigma, based on lack of knowledge, misguided tradition, and outright discrimination, often casts shame on those who seek psychiatric or psychological help.

Let’s begin with a real-life example that by itself should shed enough light on the injustice of mental health stigma. In 2011, a patient came to a Philadelphia hospital, agitated and depressed. She was admitted and immediately wandering hospital corridors, rambling incoherently, responding to internal voices.  The initial diagnosis was agitated depression.

A member of the medical staff was alerted to a possible underlying medical condition by lab results.  A final diagnosis of chronic meningitis, a disorder caused by bacteria or parasitic infection, resulted in a dramatic change in the treatment. Within the next few days her mental condition improved rapidly, and shortly she was fully oriented and free from symptoms.

The woman had “caught” what appeared to be a mental illness, just as one might catch the mumps or the flu.  Fortunately, she found herself in a top flight medical institution where the cause, and cure, were eventually found. Suppose she had ignored her symptoms because like many who share her problem she was afraid her family would think she was “crazy,” “whacko?” Suppose she had allowed the stigma to prevent her from walking into that ER?  The result might have been suicide. It happens often, as headlines too frequently report.

The words that we use every day serve can strengthen negative connotations and further alienate sufferers from society and treatment.  Mental illness is not a character flaw, not a personal weakness, but rather a disease not unlike other chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease, diagnosable and treatable.  Untreated mental illness exacts huge costs on our economy and our society

Delmarva Discovery Center Names Stacey Weisner as Executive Director

The Delmarva Discovery Center Board of Directors is extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Stacey Weisner of Salisbury as their new Executive Director.  “Stacey’s experience is a perfect fit for us and under her leadership I know the future of the Delmarva Discovery Center is very bright” according to Susan B. Pusey, DDC Board Chair.

Stacey brings years of non-profit and management know-how to the job including extensive community involvement.  She most recently was at the Delmarva Zoological Society, where she led the new organization in exceeding the $3 million capital campaign to renew the Salisbury Zoo.

“I’m honored and excited to have an opportunity to make a contribution and am looking forward to showing the Center off and creating local and regional pride.  It is well worth the drive and you will be amazed at what is inside the 16,000 square foot building.”

“What really attracted me to the job was evident from the moment you walk into the Center and see the sailboat in the hallway.  Children can climb into the 14’ cat boat and are transformed into sailors.  They have the opportunity to move the rudder as wind fills the sail of the cat boat.  As you continue to walk through the museum you can explore a life size two-story steamship that takes you back in time. The 6,000 gallon aquarium allows you to see what lives within the murky wonders of the Pocomoke River, including our prehistoric fish Long Nose Gar and Sturgeon. Visitors can experience various dive programs. Learn how divers communicate underwater, and visit with our resident mermaid. The DDC captures the cultural and natural beauties of the Delmarva region” she said.

Stacey invites everyone to attend the free Winter Watermen’s Festival at DDC on Dec 13, from 11 am – 3 pm.

Stacey will serve as the main public contact and spokesperson for the Delmarva Discovery Center. She invites everyone to visit the Center located at 2 Market Street, Pocomoke City, or contact at 410-957-9933, stacey@DelmarvaDiscoveryCenter.org, or visit the website at  www.DelmarvaDiscoveryCenter.org,

Atlantic General Hospital Offers Lung Cancer Screening

Low dose CT screenings now recommended by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

Berlin, Md. – Like many other forms of cancer, there is now a screening test for the early detection of lung cancer. If you meet certain criteria, you may be a candidate for this potentially lifesaving test.

Atlantic General Hospital, an ACR Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center, has joined a select group of healthcare providers on the eastern shore who have recently begun to provide special low-dose cat scans for those individuals who are at high risk for developing lung cancer.

While there is a low level of risk associated with exposure to imaging radiation, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has determined that certain individuals can greatly benefit from annual screenings, as recently reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Three out of four people who are diagnosed with lung cancer may already have an incurable form of disease at the time of diagnosis and therefore have a five-year survival rate of less than five percent. The results of a large clinical trial have shown that annual screening with low-dose CT scans is associated with a twenty percent reduction in lung cancer deaths.

Because the recommendation is so recent, most commercial insurance carriers and Medicare do not cover the cost of the CT screening, however, that may change in the near future. Fortunately, AGH has attempted to price the screening at a very reasonable cost to the patient.

To qualify for screening, certain criteria that must be met. Individuals must – be between the ages of 55 and 74, be a current or former smoker who has quit in the last 15 years, have a 30-pack year smoking history (a pack a day for 30 years or two packs a day for 15 years), or a 20-pack year smoking history with certain risk factors such as asbestos exposure or family history of lung cancer.

 

*Additional criteria will be discussed with the patient at the initial appointment.

 For more information about this screening, individuals are encouraged to talk to their primary care physician. To have the test performed you will need a referral from your healthcare provider. Information is also available at www.atlanticgeneral.org/lungcancerscreening.
