What a wonderful idea to use the beauty of Cypress Park as background for prom photos.
These young adults look absolutely elegant yet comfortable in formal wear and the photos are wonderful.

Pocomoke High School Warriors Boy's Basketball team took their game to the University of Maryland Comcast Center on Friday to play the Williamsport Wildcats in the MPSSAA 1A semifinals.
Our Pocomoke Warriors lost that game with the final score of 67-48. Here's a quote I found in the Daily Times from the Warrior's coach Derrick Fooks and what he had to say about his hardplaying team. "We just never got anything going today, no rhythm at all."
Gosh! No rhythm?? Coach Fooks you made those boys sound like they went onto the arena floor with two left feet and minus thumbs to play the game! Surely you could have said something better than that!
Let's just call it an "off" day on the wrong day. There's no doubt in my mind that the members on that team worked themselves into exhaustion to get ready for Friday. And it's very apparent that they worked quite hard all season to achieve once again this year what has been achieved so many years before in the name of basketball and for Pocomoke High School.
Eight members of the basketball will probably return next year for another chance at the playoffs and the title. Sadly, four seniors played for the last time and leave with no championship under their belts for the 2011 Basketball season. That's very disappointing.
But what comes out on top is that the members on the Pocomoke High School Warriors Basketball Team are NOT losers at all! THEY are the winners too! In order for a team to get as far as they did and to have accomplish what they did two things have to go right while making the formula for winning: You need a great team that is willing to work hard, care about themselves and care about others to make all things work. And you need a great coach to make sure it gets done! That's just what happened.
Pocomoke Warrior's team ended the year with a 18-6 record. To have gone so far all of you had to be dong everything right. You should all be very proud.
Williamsport lost to Dunbar on Saturday - 64-43

A group of concerned individuals petitioned the Worcester County Board of Education Tuesday to bring junior varsity football to Pocomoke High School (PHS).
While many board members openly supported the idea, they also cautioned the group that the process of bringing a football team to PHS would likely be long and have to take place in degrees.
“They [the kids] all want to play,” said Howard Wilkinson parent of two children currently at Pocomoke Middle School.
Wilkinson explained to the assembly that his kids deserved the opportunity to play football on a school team once they reached PHS.
As of now, the only options for Pocomoke area students who wish to play football are programs like the Salvation Army Youth Club. Or, if a student is determined to play on a school team, Worcester County allows youths to attend any public school they wish, regardless of residence, as long as the individual can provide their own transportation.
This policy has resulted in many students transferring to nearby Snow Hill High School, just to take advantage of that school’s football program.
However, the process can be trying on families who have to transport the student to and from school every day. Additionally, the transfer means having to adjust to a new school and new people, an experience which is often difficult to manage for students at that age.
While Worcester used to allow temporary, one semester transfers to students wishing to participate in other schools’ sporting seasons, a relatively recent state athletic law has changed the rules.
“The school you play for, you have to graduate from,” Superintendent Dr. Jon Andes explained to the assembly, meaning that students who transfer to Show Hill High School to play football are implying the intent to graduate from that school. If they were to return to PHS at any point, they would not be allowed to play on the Show Hill High football team again.
Such rules were cited by the group asking for a football program at PHS, including Salvation Army Youth Club Director Harvey Davis, who told the Board of Education that he saw more than enough commitment and dedication from Pocomoke players on his club team to justify giving the school its own program.
The board heard what the advocates were saying and seemed engaged in the discussion and exploring all options.
Several members shared their own memories of playing high school football and agreed that it was an opportunity for growth that all youths should have the chance to experience. However, the realities of bringing football to PHS, even just junior varsity, will be difficult to surmount.
“Football is a very expensive undertaking,” said Andes. “It’s probably one of the most expensive programs.”
Board of Education President Bob Hulburd agreed, saying, “There are a lot of nuts and bolts and details that need to be worked out.”
The board suggested taking the Stephen Decatur High School swim team as something of a model for what would need to be done at PHS. That team began at the club level after receiving a lot of support from students and parents and eventually evolved into a fully Decatur-endorsed program.
“You need to show the intent and commitment of the community,” Board of Education Vice President Bob Rothermel said.
Rothermel recommended getting in touch with PHS administration, the PTA, and the community at large and coming back at the board’s next meeting.
Wilkinson and his group got a head start on Rothermel’s proposal when PHS Principal Tyrone Mills, who was in the audience, lent his support to the petition.
“I’d love to have football at Pocomoke High School,” he said.

Manchester Valley made good use of the opening possession of the game. Off of the opening whistle, the Mavericks created one of their best scoring chances of the contest, sending a shot just wide of the post.
Pocomoke continued to pour on the pressure, peppering the Mavericks with shots and earning multiple penalty corner opportunities. The Warriors doubled their lead with 12:36 remaining in the first half, as West stole a pass and immediately went to goal. West dribbled inside of the circle before unleashing a shot that punished the back of the Manchester Valley cage.
The Mavericks (8-6-1) pressed on for the tying goal, but it never came as Pocomoke was able to keep the ball in or near the Manchester Valley circle as time ticked away.
When the final horn sounded the Pocomoke sideline erupted with joy, as the Warriors raced on to the field to revel in their accomplishment and the chance to play in yet another state championship.
"No one can explain this feeling really -- they never get old, keep them coming," said Pusey of her multiple state final appearances. "I'm fortunate to have good kids that play hard, play well, and do what I ask them to do. As long as we keep on playing like we are, hopefully we will come out on top again."
