On the second weekend of July, The Farnsworth Gallery is set to present “Paint the Town En Plein Air,” an art exhibit and sale featuring local and professional artists’ paintings of various sites in Bordentown City. “En plein air” describes artwork that is painted outdoors, at the location of the subject to be painted. As part of the event, artists attend a meetand-greet on Friday, July 13 to discuss possible locations of inspiration and explore Bordentown City on foot. The next day, they will bring out their paints, brushes, canvases and easels to spend the day painting outside. Each artist will create 2-4 pieces of art, which will be displayed for sale at Farnsworth Gallery on Sunday, July 15. The gallery is owned by Trenton resident Martha Press, who previously owned a gallery in Trenton from 1999-2006 before opening her gallery in Bordentown. Press sees the event as a noteworthy opportunity for artists and Bordentown alike. “The fun of it is, you’re painting a special image in a special town,” she said. “It’s a

very traditional thing to do.” Historically, towns and cities along the Mystic Seaport and Annapolis have hosted similar events. “It’s an opportunity for the gallery to introduce artwork to newcomers, and for people to be able to buy a lovely piece of art that was done on-site,” Press added. The artwork will be displayed along the parking lot fence, and sales are open to the public. Artists’ full-sized paintings will range from $100-$500 with a maximum size of 36x42 inches. Each artist will also have the option of painting a five-by-seven inch piece priced at $75. The artwork will be on two-dimensional media (no sculptures) such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastels, pencil and the like. Farnsworth Gallery is located at 134 Farnsworth Ave. in Bordentown City. All artists are invited to participate in the event. To participate, submit an application and $30 nonrefundable registration fee by July 6. To request an application, contact Vicki Gaudier at (609) 203-0541, email vg302@comcast.net, or stop by the gallery. —Abigail Pillitteri

ALMEIDA continued from Page 1 ty’s sentiments. “When I got started, jiu jitsu was viewed as a kind of counterculture,” Almeida said. “Because it wasn’t as mainstream as it is today, many Brazilians didn’t understand what we were doing and viewed us kind of like Americans view skateboarders and surfers; as rebels almost.” Master Renzo Gracie took a liking to young Almeida and became his mentor, spending countless hours helping him master his craft. Almeida would develop into one of the finest practitioners of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and go on to win his first of back-toback National Championships in 1996 at the age of 19. In 1997, at 21 years old, Almeida would follow his mentor to New Jersey, where they would introduce Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in an academy setting to the United States. By the time they arrived, many people had seen the devastating effects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when Renzo’s cousin Royce Gracie became the first ever Ultimate Fighting Champion in 1993. But the art remained a mystery to many as they had never experienced it first hand. With the help of Renzo, Almeida opened his first studio at Flex Gym in Edgewater Park and quickly gained a lot of attention. Among those that took notice of Almeida and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu when it first came around was Brian McPherson. McPherson was a law enforcement officer and quickly realized the benefits Brazilian Jiu Jitsu had for his profession. In 1998, McPherson, Almeida and Gracie began offering law enforcement only classes and soon began teaching basic ground fighting skills at state, county and local academies. All three would go on to teach and attend federal level courses in ground fighting techniques based almost entirely on their Brazilian Jiu Jitsu system. “Back then, there was nothing required

or even available to law enforcement agents in how to deal with situations that ended up on the ground,” McPherson said. “With my professional connections and Professor Almeida’s technical know how, we were able to bring real world training to the police officers, federal agents and correction officers. The reality was that everybody else was learning it, and law enforcement needed to be ahead of the curve.” While Almeida was trying to grow his school, he also aspired to become a world class fighter like his mentor, but was often dissuaded by Renzo of pursuing a professional career in MMA. “Master Renzo told me I was too nice to be a fighter, that I didn’t have the killer instinct,” Almeida said. “And I was like, what do you mean? I’m a two time Brazilian National Champion, a Pan-Am [Games] Champion and have competed against the best grapplers in the world.” Almeida used his mentor’s doubts to fuel his quest for greatness, and finally, after years of traveling to Japan to help Renzo train for his fights, got his chance to fight in the Pride Fighting Championships in 2000. “I will always remember my first fight,” Almeida said. “I won a unanimous decision against Akira Shoji, who was one of the toughest fighters ever in Pride’s history. Also, back then there were no weight classes, so Shoji was quite a bit bigger than I was.” Over the next few years, Almeida continued to juggle the responsibilities of being a professional fighter on an international stage with running a growing academy. In 2003, Almeida became the 7th King of Pancrase when he submitted Nate Marquardt by guillotine choke in the first round. Soon after capturing the Pancrase title, Almeida retired from professional fighting to focus on his growing family and the development of his school. “It was tough being away from my family

All Insurance’s Accepted Affordable Wellness Care and on the road in other countries,” Almeida recalled. “When I wasn’t at the gym training for a fight, I was at Flex [Gym] training my students. It was a very demanding schedule.” Almeida’s school was growing at a rapid pace, and he needed to find a bigger venue to accommodate its increasing enrollment. In 2005, Almeida moved the academy to Hamilton and had approximately 150 registered students. The RABJJ Academy offered training for all skill levels including kids, beginners, advanced, women, law enforcement, competition and MMA classes. Members of the now defunct International Fight League World Champion New York Pitbulls also used the RABJJ Academy as one of their primary training facilities, as the team was coached by Renzo Gracie and Almeida. No matter how successful Almeida’s academy became, he couldn’t get rid of the itch to step back inside the cage and fight again. In 2008, Dana White and the UFC gave Almeida an opportunity to make a comeback on their Super Bowl weekend card. Almeida didn’t disappoint as he submitted Rob Yundt with a guillotine choke in the first round. Immediately after his successful bid at a comeback, Almeida’s academy needed more room for his more than 400 students, so he rented the entire first floor of the building next to where his school currently sits. Over the next three years, Almeida would fight eight more times and compile a 5-3 record over that span, defeating Matt Brown and Kendall Grove along the way. After a majority decision loss to Mike Pyle in 2011, Almeida retired again, this time for good. “I knew after that fight that it was over,” Almeida said. “I needed to focus on being the best instructor and father I could be and find other ways to remain involved in the sport without the full time commitment.” Outside of jiu jitsu and MMA, Almeida is a family man and celebrated his step-daughter Giulliana’s graduation from Bordentown Regional High School this year. Almeida may not be a Bordentown native, but for the better part of the last decade, he has called it home.

Almeida also has two sons, Renzo (9) and Flavio (7), and both attend classes at the RABJJ Academy. The oldest son, Renzo, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 5, and with the help of the Bordentown Regional School District has flourished in life, Almeida said. Almeida also credits jiu jitsu with his son’s progress in living with autism. “Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the best kept martial arts secrets out there for children within the autism spectrum,” Almeida said. “The kids benefit a lot from the structure and discipline, and Renzo loves it so much that he rarely misses a class.” Over the past 15 years, Almeida has trained a diverse group of students and helped them earn their black belts. Among his many students to earn black belts under the GracieAlmeida name, are Brian McPherson, Steve Bongiorno, Tom DeBlass and Nick Cattone. All four black belts have opened up academies of their own and pass on their knowledge and experience to their students. McPherson’s school, located on Route 541 in Mount Holly, is opening a second location in the newly remodeled Flex Gym, which ironically will bring RABJJ back to where it began. As for the other schools, Nick Cattone and Tom DeBlass are both following in Almeida’s footsteps as both are also fighters in the UFC. Cattone is currently working with Almeida to help Frankie Edgar, a New Jersey native, regain his UFC Championship Belt at 155 pounds when he takes on Ben Henderson in a re-match later this year. DeBlass is preparing for his UFC debut when he fights on their July 11 card. Besides his school and training other fighters, Almeida has found one other way to remain active in the fight game, as a judge for the New Jersey Athletic Control Board. Most recently Almeida was the judge for the Josh Koschek-Johnny Hendricks bout in Newark.

YACHT CLUB continued from Page 1 bers to different committees. The club’s six officers each oversee different maintenance areas. The fleet captain organizes the club’s annual Chesapeake cruise, the rear commodore takes care of the house and grounds, putting docks in and taking them out, the vice commodore manages the bar, and the commodore takes care of everyone and everything. The club celebrated its official opening

day May 5, with a dinner and event held on the dock, where each captain is recognized as he salutes and walks up from the docks. Each summer, club members get together for events like the annual Chesapeake cruise, pig roast, golf outing, monthly cruise nights that feature classic cars, comedy nights, and the bar is open to club members three nights a week. The club also held a crab feast each year for 30 years, though it won’t be held this year.

“A lot of great friendships are made, and you’ll find that people end up hanging out with each other away from the club, not just here, and I think that’s what’s really the best thing about it,” Horahan said. Past commodore Scott Jones recalled a trip he and a group took on a pontoon boat to see a show down the river. No sooner had the group arrived, the skies opened up into a downpour. Because of the amount of people with him, the Hopewell resident had left his canvas coverings at the club, so the ride back was slow and treacherous. “As I can see the club, my radio starts going off. Now, it’s 12:30 at night,” Jones said. “It was Gabby and Tony, sitting in the parking lot, waiting till I got back. To make sure I made it, make sure I docked. That’s what the club’s about.” In the midst of a hurricane, a few of the members can always be found spending the night at the club house or on their boats, to make sure the club house doesn’t flood. Last year, club members even got together for an impromptu “hurricane party.” “We had the hurricane coming in and we were supposed to have our crab feast,” Horahan said. “So I had ordered 1,800 clams that I couldn’t get rid of, so I said, ‘everybody come down and eat clams, make sure the clubhouse doesn’t get flooded.’ Completely off the cuff. We actually ended up being one of the few places that didn’t flood.” Even without the threat of weather, club members just enjoy the feeling of being out on the water. “I like spending the weekend on my boat. There’s nothing like sleeping on a boat,” Jones said. “I sleep on my boat every weekend in boating season.” Sometimes a group gets together for a float, which requires each member to put on a lifevest upside down and float from one end of the dock to the other, drink in hand. “On a slower tide, you have to bang on boats on the way down to see if you can get a refill. And sometimes you get the ice at one boat, the liquor at the next, the mixer … beg-

But the thing that keeps each member coming back is the friendships the club represents and fosters. “I’ve made so many friends here in 20 years, it’s amazing. Close friends,” said current commodore Joe Helewa, of Hopewell. The Bordentown Yacht Club is located at 1 Farnsworth Ave. in Bordentown City. For more information, call (609) 298-9754.

AWARD continued from Page 1 awards. Halvorsen was chosen as this year’s recipient of the health care professional award, which recognizes her contributions in the health care field for her work with disadvantaged amputees. Halvorsen’s interest in amputee therapy began when she met Tomasz “Tomek” Starnawski of Ewing for the first time. Starnawski was a former marathon runner from Poland who lost his left leg at the knee at age 34. When Halvorsen saw Starnawski’s amputated leg and his strong athletic build, she knew she wanted to help. His lack of insurance motivated her to help him raise the funds for a proper prosthetic leg. “I thought, ‘What a waste it’s going to be for this guy to just go around on these crutches for a year, two years, however long it’s going to take for him to raise money,’” she said. Despite a hectic life with two jobs — one at Capital Health Regional Medical Center and another providing home care through Mercer Street Friends — and a family with three children, Halvorsen vowed to do her best to raise money for a $25,000 high quality prosthesis Starnawski could use for running. Within a year, she established Walking Tall Charities, Inc. Initially, Halvorsen intended to raise money solely for Starnawski, but when she reached her goal within months and her organization gained momentum, she continued the venture for other amputees. Walking Tall Charities, Inc. has assisted a variety of individuals including a five-yearold boy from Chicago who lost a leg to cancer and a college student from New York born without a right leg. Halvorsen welcomes all ages to apply for assistance, as long as they meet the financial requirements—a lack of ability to pay for a prosthetic limb. She said though an insurance company may provide coverage, some companies limit coverage to a flat fee or “one leg per lifetime” cap. “Prosthetics are very costly,” she said. To date, Walking Tall Charities, Inc. has raised approximately $150,000 through various fundraisers and donations. Halvorsen’s largest fundraising event, Limbs in Motion, is a 5k run/walk and one mile walk held each October at Veteran’s Park in Hamilton. The event is open to both the amputee and able-bodied communities. Though Halvorsen has a small group of dedicated volunteers, she commits most of her evenings and weekends, plus one week a year of vacation time from work, to plan the fall event. “At night, most people want to put their kids to bed and watch TV,” said her husband Kurt, who nominated Halvorsen for her Governor’s Jefferson Award. “She spent that time coordinating events … It was all for others. You don’t see a lot of that in the world today.” Though the time consumption and occasional roadblocks are sometimes overwhelming, Halvorsen said she just needs the triumphs of her patients to remind her of her purpose. “There’d be moments when somebody would just do phenomenal in therapy that

day or Tomek would text me and say, ‘Oh, I just did another half marathon, I’m under two hours now,’” she said. “Things like that kind of re-ground you and put you back into perspective.” Lawrence resident Jane Cox said Halvorsen’s positive attitude toward amputees is “amazing.” Cox first met Halvorsen in physical therapy in early 2009. With a left-leg prosthesis and a right leg in poor walking condition, Cox’s original therapist told her that she would have to live on crutches and in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. But when her doctor directed her to Halvorsen, she made more progress. “Because of her and her knowledge of how the prosthetic leg works, she was able to teach me more,” Cox said of Halvorsen, who worked with her in therapy for two years. “She has gotten me out of the chair and walking again.” Since meeting Halvorsen, Cox has raised money for Walking Tall Charities, Inc. through a scrapbooking event and walked with her cane in two of Halvorsen’s Limbs in Motion one-mile walks. Halvorsen, in addition to her two jobs, family and nonprofit, has dedicated the remainder of her free time to bettering herself as a physical therapist for amputees. She runs a monthly support group for amputees in Mercer County, occasionally travels around the country to attend trainings and events for amputee therapy and donated 10 days in 2010 to a trip to Haiti to aid amputee victims affected by the earthquake.

City aims to stay green

awareness, more sponsorships and more money, so she can eventually assist more than one individual per year. On the Web: walkingtallcharities.org.

When the Gangone family opened up its restaurant, Casa Gangone, May 2, it turned a dream that began more than 30 years ago into a reality. “We just worked so hard to get to this point, because we’ve always wanted to have this, to have more of a restaurant … this was our next goal to achieve,” Luca Gangone said. The vision began more than 30 years ago, when Rocco Gangone first opened up Rocco’s Pizza, a casual pizzeria next door to Casa Gangone on West Front Street in Florence. The family still owns and operates Rocco’s, but opened up Casa Gangone as a formal dining alternative. Rocco and his wife, Anna, raised their family in Florence, but sons Lorenzo and Luca, who work at both the pizzeria and Casa Gangone, have since moved to Bordentown: Lorenzo to Bordentown City, and Luca to the township. Even as children, Lorenzo and Luca spent most of their days in the pizzeria with their parents. “It’s not just working here, it’s like we were raised here,” Lorenzo said. “It’s like

a second home. It’s pretty much our lives.” Opening up the formal dining restaurant was a natural step for the Gangones. After years spent running the casual pizzeria, the family wanted to give customers not only a taste of pastas and entrees made from family recipes, but to give customers a dining experience. “It’s another way we can show people what we’re capable of. It’s always been our thing with the pizzeria next door, pizza and sandwiches,” Lorenzo said. “We’re more than just that. And a lot of the response we’ve gotten, it’s been really positive, and it feels nice to be appreciated. We’re appreciated over there (at the pizzeria) as well, but it’s a different kind of appreciation.” Rocco said it had always been his plan to work in the food industry in the U.S. after he left his hometown of Tiziano, Italy. “It was from the beginning,” Rocco said. “I got here in the United States April 9, 1974, and the next following Monday, I started working at a pizza place and never stopped.” Rocco returned home to marry his wife, Anna, and the couple arrived together a year later to make a name for themselves in the pizza business. In fact, Rocco said

he still has regular customers who have been buying food from him since the day he opened up his shop.When the pizzeria was closed for 10 days for expansion and remodeling, customers came in and bought 10 meals to freeze and eat until Rocco’s would be open again. Both Casa Gangone and Rocco’s Pizza operate out of the same kitchen, but the atmospheres of the neighboring locations couldn’t be more different. While Rocco’s is a typical pizzeria perfect for a soccer team celebration or a quick bite to eat, Casa Gangone’s more quiet and intimate setting is designed for the experience of a special dinner or date night. Now, its opening has allowed the family to share its recipes with old and new customers. Dishes like penne arugula, stuffed mushrooms, crochette di patate and rice balls are just a few of the foods the Gangone family enjoys at home that are now available on the menu. But the menu also features a combination of recipes from extended family members, and is still adding new recipes, too. “Before we make it for the restaurant, we make it for us, to try it,” Rocco said. Though the family is working

Rocco, Anna, Lorenzo and Luca Gangone sit in the dining room of the family’s new restaurant, Casa Gangone, in Florence. (Staff photo by Lexie Yearly.) to perfect Casa Gangone’s menu, customers can still find new additions next door. The newest recipe is for a Brooklyn pizza, a thin crust Sicilian pie with mozzarella, basil,

olive oil and parmesan cheese. “I worked on it for a couple months trying to get it right,” Lorenzo said. “I got the inspiration for that pizza because we go

to Italy every couple years, so we go visit our family. And there’s this baker in the town where we’re from, Tiziano. He makes this pizza, and I was trying to

mimic how he made it.” Casa Gangone is located at 310 W. Front St. in Florence. For more information, call (609) 499-0040. On the Web: casagangone.com.

Expanding veterinary clinic offers latest pet care technology By miKe steele The Chesterfield Veterinary Clinic spent several years looking for a location with the space necessary to incorporate the newest technology and more pets, before it finally settled in Bordentown. The clinic began in a single room inside the Georgetown Road farmhouse of original owner Dr. Ellen Friedman in the 1970s before moving to Newbold Lane in Chesterfield several years later. “You’d be surprised how many people didn’t know we existed over there. We were on a little side alley and didn’t have a lot of traffic flow in that area,” Dr. Rebecca Boncheck said. Boncheck, who took over ownership in 1997, decided in the early 2000s that with advances in veterinary technologies, the Chesterfield location was not ideal. “The electricity that came down there was for an average home. We needed to set up our own transformer,” Boncheck said.

of nurses, technicians and assistants care for a variety of animals on a daily basis. The clinic provides routine medical services for household pets, as well as full service surgery, geriatric care and dental care. “We’re what people would consider a general practice, like going to your family doctor. We’re kind of like the family doctor for the pets,” Boncheck said. The clinic’s most popular services include routine vaccinations for puppies and kittens, and treating exotic household pets and “pocket pets,” such as rabbits, rodents and ferrets. The facility has whole surgery capabilities, which allows the staff to perform routine surgeries and provide surgical consults. The clinic also provides a home euthanasia program called Rainbow Bridge. “We offer the service of euthanizing pets in the comfort of the home so that they don’t have to be brought to an unfamiliar surrounding,” Boncheck said.

The facility recently underwent an expansion in November, doubling its size by knocking down the walls

of the empty neighboring unit in the shopping center. The larger space allows the staff to treat more patients with newer technologies. Three veterinarians and a team

While the clinic is not set up to be an emergency facility, if an animal in an emergency situation is brought in, it will be treated or sent to a veterinary hospital . The clinic’s location and new expansion enable the facility to treat animals by using the latest veterinary technologies, such as digital imaging and cold laser therapy. The laser procedures are used to treat infectious disease, and are beneficial for wound healing and physical therapy. Despite the addition of new technologies, providing compassionate care is the staff’s main focus. “We treat pets like they’re members of our family and we understand that they’re members of our clients’ families,” Boncheck said. “I hear a lot of clients say, ‘I wish my own family doctor took as good care of me as you’re taking of our pets.’” Chesterfield Veterinary Clinic is located at 650 Route 206 South in Bordentown.

SPORTS Post 26 back on Mercer County American Legion League title track By Anthony Williams Bordentown Post 26 is back and ready to defend its 2011 Mercer County American Legion League Championship behind 2011 Pitcher of the Year Joe Gutowski and manager Tom Dolan. Post 26 is coming off of an impressive year that saw the team capture its third league championship in five years, fueled buy a 13-game winning streak after a slow 6-5 start. The 2012 season started a lot like last year, as Post 26 started 0-2, dropping each of their first two games by one run, before winning four straight games. Some of Post 26’s early woes could be attributed to the team’s geographic diversity—fielding players from Bordentown, Northern Burlington and Florence—and the athletes’ lack of playing time together. “We’re typically a slow starting team,” Dolan said. “We have a very talented team, but because our players come from such a large area, the chemistry isn’t there yet.” Despite the lack of chemistry, Post 26 has shown a lot of promise on the mound with both starting pitchers throwing solidly in Bordentown’s two losses. Hightstown and

West Windsor were only able to score five earned runs combined during 15 innings of play. “Our pitchers turned in outstanding performances in our two losses, but we made two mental mistakes in the field against Hightstown that cost us, and West Windsor, who is supposed to be one of the top teams in the league, beat us 3-2 in extra innings,” Dolan said. Bordentown’s staff ace, Gutowski, earned a no-decision in his outing against West Windsor, but thought he could have done more. “I’m not pitching my best right now,” Gutowski said. “I need to loosen up my arm and get more velocity behind my pitches, but I try to make up for it at the plate for the time being.” After dropping its first two games, Post 26 bounced back with a double-header sweep of Princeton Post 218 at Gilder Field in Bordentown to even its record at 2-2. Bordentown outscored Princeton 23-9 in the twogame series. Post 26 spent the better part of last month getting into winning form, and gets a shot at redemption against West WindsorPlainsboro, when Bordentown returns from

its annual trip to the Firecracker Baseball Tournament in Rhode Island, on July 6. The Rhode Island trip has served as a catalyst for Post 26 in years past. “We’ve played maybe half a dozen games so far this year,” Gutowski said. “By the time we get back from Rhode Island, we should be in good form, and I expect good things to happen. Last year, we reeled off 13 straight wins to win the league, so I can’t wait to get back.” Bordentown doesn’t want to look too far ahead though, as Hopewell Post 339, Hamilton Post 31 and West Windsor-Plainsboro represent real threats to Post 26 defending the title. “It’s going to be tough to repeat, but we have the talent to do it,” Dolan said. “Hamilton Post 31 has proven to be a thorn in our side over the years, and West Windsor-Plainsboro, who finished second last year, is returning most of their young team, so it should get interesting as the season progresses.” The talent Dolan referred to are all-stars from area colleges, high schools and prep schools, including Taylor Steen, Gavin Stupienski, Ryan McGowan, Heath Fillmyer, Dan Hornyak and Mike Kendall.

Meet of Champs ends Scotties’ reign By Anthony Williams After a grueling regular season schedule, the spring track and field season has come to an end for Bordentown Regional’s two outstanding throwers, Alicia Carthan and Kelly Yanucil. The pair competed for the second consecutive year in the Meet of Champions, the final competition for the top track athletes in New Jersey. Junior Kelly Yanucil qualified for the event by finishing second at the NJSIAA Group II Championships in the javelin and set a new school record with a throw of 136-5. Senior Alicia Carthan joined Yanucil at the M.O.C. again, having qualified for the event with a 5th place finish in the shot put with a throw of 37-3. Yanucil entered the M.O.C. ranked 6th in the state in the javelin, and faced some stiff competition. The top-ranked javelin throwers consistently threw more than 140 feet, with the No. 1 thrower, from Vineland, throwing 160 feet. However, Yanucil wasn’t worried about the other throwers ahead of her; rather she was focused on herself and becoming a better thrower each time she took to the field. “Kelly’s goal is to get better every time she goes out there,” head coach William Lloyd said. “She’s only a junior with a lot of seniors ahead of her, so she knows if she stays the course, she has a great opportunity to be a top 2 or 3 thrower in her senior year.” Yanucil had her sights set on another personal best in her final meet of the season and a top 5 overall finish, but fell short of those goals, finishing in 6th place with a throw of 121 feet. All of the javelin throwers faced difficult throwing conditions, with the wind blowing in their faces and a muddy runway from days of torrential rain. The conditions were so poor that state record holder Maria Jimenez of Vineland threw nearly 17 feet

shorter than her record setting 160-8 throw. “The conditions just weren’t good for the throwers,” Lloyd said. “Kelly did the best that she could, and she’ll get another shot at it next year.” Carthan won’t get another opportunity at high school track and field glory, as she is a graduating senior, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t left her mark on the throwing community at Bordentown High. Carthan is the current record holder for the Scotties, having thrown 39-11 last year, as a junior. Carthan also faced similar throwing conditions during the M.O.C. and managed only 36-8, which wasn’t good enough to earn a medal. “I was really hoping to break the 40’ barrier this year, but I’m still happy to have achieved everything I did while at Bordentown,” Carthan said. The conclusion of the 2012 season marks the end of an era for Bordentown, a period that has featured the most dominating female throwers in school history competing side by side. Between the two of them, Yanucil and Carthan hold every record for discus, javelin and shot put. “Having Alicia with me the whole way has been very important,” Yanucil said. “She was a great teammate, motivator and friend, and I’m going to miss that camaraderie next year.” Carthan will be attending Rider University in the fall of 2012 and play field hockey for the Lady Broncs. Yanucil and Carthan weren’t the only bright spots for the Scotties this year, as Emily Meszaros broke the school record in the 800 meter at the County Open. Meszaros finished in 6th place with a time of 2:25.03 to surpass the previous record held by Brittany Bakeman with a time of 2:25.5. Tai Musari finished 4th in the 3,200 meters and 5th in the 1,600 meters at the Central New Jersey Group II meet in May.

Q. My daughter is 14 and getting ready to start high school. When should she have her first GYN appointment, and what can I do to prepare her? I think she will be a little ner vous about it. A. Your daughter is at an appropriate age for her first gynecological appointment. In fact, many young girls have their first appointment when they are between 13 and 15. While the experience can be a little nerve-racking for the both of you, it should really be considered an informed entry into

womanhood. At our practice, we believe that a young woman’s first visit should be a positive experience. It’s a way to build a relationship and engage in conversations about safe and healthy habits. If either of you are concerned about examinations during the first appointment, keep in mind that they are adjusted and determined based on the needs of the patient. The first appointment may just include a general physical exam with some one-on-one time for questions and answers. This includes a discussion about menstruation: the date of her last period; how long it lasts; if it is light, medium or heavy; and if she experiDr. Dinah ences cramping. Depending on the patient’s age, development and if she is sexually active, the appointment can also include a pelvic exam, breast exam, pap test or additional tests.

Many teens often want confirmation on what is normal and what to expect as far as their changing bodies, so encourage your daughter to bring her list of questions. Tell her the appointment is confidential and that you will not be present in the room unless she would like you there. Finally, just reassure your daughter that everything will be OK. As I mentioned, doctors and midwives are sensitive to young patients’ needs and will make a special effort to explain aspects of care as well as any procedures, if needed.

ASPCA helpline staffed 24/7 Ask The Vet Specialist

Send your questions to askthevet@mercerspace.com Got a question about your pet? Experts from NorthStar VETS 24-hour emergency veterinary center in Robbinsville are ready to answer readers’ questions. Send your questions to askthevet@mercerspace.com. Q. My dog yawns frequently. It doesn’t matter if he just woke up from a nap or if he’s excited and running around. Is yawning a sign that he’s tired, or does it mean something else? A. Yawning does not necessarily imply tiredness alone, but that is probably when it occurs most commonly. Some dogs may yawn during exercise as part of a body cooling mechanism since they do not sweat like people do. It can also be a behavioral calming response when interacting with other dogs to convey their mood as part of their body language. Q. My dog has some behavioral issues from before we got her (we adopted her from a family member when she was 5). Is there anything we can do to change these actions, like excessive growling and biting, or is it really true that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? A. There is no simple solution to aggression issues. Behavioral issues are very difficult to work with, but older dogs can still be trained successfully. One easy option is to avoid the situations that trigger an aggressive response if possible. For example, if your dog growls when you try to make her get off the couch, then she should not be allowed on the couch in the first place. If there is aggression associated with feeding, then your dog should be allowed to eat alone

and without interruption. Scolding or hitting your dog will not be successful. In general, positive reinforcement and reward strategies are more likely to yield favorable results than negative reinforcement or punishment. Sometimes consultation with a veterinary behavior specialist or even mood-altering medications may be needed, but they are not quick fixes. It is much easier to prevent bad habits when training a younger dog than it is to adjust the behaviors of an older dog, but with time and patience, often times these issues can be improved or eliminated. —Justin Guinan, DVM, DACVIM Q. Is it necessar y to declaw my cat? Will it hurt my cat to declaw it? A. No, it is not necessary to declaw. You can encourage the cat to use its claws on scratching posts, keep the nails short or apply Soft Paws. Soft Paws is a product that can be picked up at most pet stores or ordered online. They are plastic covers that are glued over the cat’s nails. They last roughly about a month, so they need to be re-applied. Your veterinarian can show how to safely trim the cat’s nails. Declawing is a painful procedure, but the pain is lessened through pain medications, nerve blocks and using a laser to perform the procedure. Q. What should I do if my dog eats something toxic or inedible? Often times, once something’s in her mouth, she won’t let us get it out. Could this be dangerous? A. If your dog eats something toxic/ inedible, the first thing to do is contact the ASPCA poison control helpline. There is a $65 charge for using the service, but the line is staffed by veterinary toxicologists who have a wealth of information and are available at all times. They may also save you and your pet a trip to the emergency room. —Joshua Sprague, DVM NorthStar VETS is a veterinary emergency trauma and specialty hospital located at 315 Robbinsville-Allentown Road, Robbinsville.
