3/17: St. Patrick’s Day Party At The C-View Inn

«

On St. Paddy’s Day, The C-View was a popular stop for Irish Cape Mayans... and those who wish they were. Part of the draw? “The Irish Pipe Brigade has been a C-View tradition for 14 years,” bar owner Gregg Coffey told us. (On the off-chance you haven’t heard of this band, they’re the group of bagpipers, established in 1994, who recruit members from police, fire, rescue, and other service organizations. And they’ve also been playing the Exit Zero Burns Supper since its 2005 launch.) The boys of the band like the C-View so much, they even played a second set. “You can tell by the pictures,” Gregg said. “We had a lot of fun!” Bonnie lassies PHOTOGRAPH BY ALEKSEY MORYAKOV...

Talk Of The Town

RAMBLINGS, GOSSIP, SHOUT-OUTS, AND OCCASIONALLY IMPORTANT ODDS AND ENDS

He Rocks! Congratulations to John Miller of the band 7Mornings who is, as of last week, a Gravitas entertainment recording artist. John, who learned to play guitar in music class at Lower Cape May Regional High School, comes from a long line of Cape Mayans... his father captained a fishing boat here for 20 years, both his mother and grandmother tended bar at the Ugly Mug, and his brother Bill works at Lucky Bones, while his brother Pat works at Congress Hall. For updates on how you can catch John’s next performance, check out his Facebook page at facebook.com/JohnnyMillerNow.

Full Throttle

DOILIES. Crumpets. Painted ladies. These are the images people conjure up when they think of a B&B-heavy Victorian town. But we’re not all staid, 1800s charm… one need only stumble into a Terrible Tuesday at the Ugly Mug for proof of that. We’re a town that knows how to have a good, adrenaline-filled time. Think of all Cape Island offers in the way of heart-racing adventure — ocean kayaking, surfing, even jet boating (coming this summer, thanks to East Coast Parasail). And we’re also only 86 miles from the New Jersey Motorsports Park, or NJMP. It’s a 500-acre facility in Millville that’s already been discovered — and lauded — by some locals, so we figured we’d get the skinny on what makes this place worth checking out, whether you’re already a skilled driver…

or the kind that needs two spots to park one car at Washington Commons. (We’ve seen you.) We called NJMP’s Manager of Communications, Chris Banker, who explained that the park is not NASCAR-affiliated. “Those tracks are mostly oval, whereas these are road courses,” he said. Meaning? Driving on the park’s world-class Thunderbolt course, you’ll cope with 14 turns; on the world-class Lightning course, 10. This is where the ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America), AMA (American Motorcyclist Association), and AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) hold professional races, and also where amateur drivers, who belong to various racing clubs, get their throttle on. “I can’t put into words the experience, the thrill, of driving here,” Chris said. Somebody who knows

exactly what Chris is referring to? Rick White, a Washington Street resident whose day job is investment banking and financial advising. “When you’re on the course,” Rick told us, “there’s absolutely nothing else you can think about. There’s no did-Ipay-pay-my-taxes, or am-Idone-that-boardroom-presentation. You need to be totally concentrated. You’re running at the edge of your control.” Rick has put over 700 hours on the track in the last 10 years (“It’s addictive,” he told us), meaning he’s worked his way through various levels, starting with the beginner and novice tiers. At these stages, a driver is required to have an instructor in the car at all times. Now, Rick, who participates in amateur races from April through October, is an

We’re spreading the word... Seaside Cheese on Park Boulevard is available to host your book club, craft club or any other kind of small club. They’ll accommodate any time schedule... plus, they’ve got the snacks. Call 609-8848700 for details.

Chopped Liver? The Good: The New York Times thinks the Outer Coastal Plain — that’s here in South Jersey — is the perfect place to make fine wine. The Bad: No mention of Cape May in their March 12 article. What gives, NYT?

An Overseas Shout-Out Congratulations to St. Mirren, the soccer team that Exit Zero publisher Jack Wright flew overseas last weekend to watch in the Scottish League Cup final. They took home the trophy for the first time in their 136-year history and Jack, it’s safe to say, is over the moon.

Subscriber Of The Week

Each week, we will feature a lucky subscriber (and Exit Zero T-shirt winner!) in this spot. This week’s subscriber: Jessica Sykes of Linwood, NJ. How long have you been coming to Cape May? I’ve been going to Cape May for a pretty long time, ever since I was little. What do you love about it? I love the quaintness of it, and how there’s always something different going on. And of course the town itself is such a beautiful place, that’s definitely a part of it. What’s your favorite thing about Cape May? It’s hard to say. I think that the combination of everything is what makes it so great. The atmosphere, the restaurants, the shopping, and the beach. What is your favorite restaurant? That’s a tough one. I’ll have to say it’s probably the Ebbitt Room. And your favorite store? My favorite store has got to be Happy Baby... Well, for right now, anyway. I’ve got two little ones. What do you like about Exit Zero? Exit Zero is informative, and it covers everything going on in town. I like it because it’s small town, but not too small town. If you know what I mean. What’s your T-shirt size? Large, please. Want to join our army of subscribers — there are hundreds of them in nearly 30 states! Call us on 609-770-8479 or buy one online at ezstore.us. It’s $50 for all 47 BW issues PLUS our six fabulous color issues, which retail for $4.95. Deal!

Talk Of The Town ? From Page 13 instructor himself. So why would a person want to take a lesson or two? For car lovers, there is the obvious appeal of being in a hub for some of the world’s most beautifully engineered vehicles. (Rick, a member of the Porsche Club of America, drives a 997-GT3.) But then there’s the more unlikely incentive… According to Rick’s partner, Victoria Clayton, some sign up in order to feel more safe. “Everyday people go to these driving schools to better their performance on the everyday road,” she told us. “They improve their reflexes, so they can react better on the Atlantic City Expressway, for example.” Right… but on the everyday road, people (hopefully) aren’t traveling at 150 miles per hour, so isn’t the danger factor high, we wanted to know? “I feel safer driving on this course than I do on the Schuylkill Expressway,” Rick said. And you should, too, we learned, because

these cars are built to protect the people inside. “We use a fivepoint harness, helmets, a neck brace, and a specialized suspension system,” Rick explained. And if none of that grabs you? “A lot of times, younger women ask me about it,” Rick says. “They have a hard time finding guys. My suggestion is to buy a midengine car like a Cayman S, join the Porsche Club of America, and come out to an event.” For more information, check out njmp.com, or give Rick a call at 609-892-4387.

The Root Beer Saga THE Stewart’s Root Beer saga has finally come to a resolution. But before we get into that… here’s a refresher on what’s gone down so far… Stewart’s Root Beer opened last May, in the site of the former Atlantic Books on the Washington Street Mall. According to the establishment’s mercantile license, issued on May 8, the restaurant is permitted 48 seats. It

operated all of last summer with about double that. The city issued two formal warnings, but the warnings went unheeded. So, on June 18 and July 13, Code Enforcement Officer John Queenan conducted inspections in which 113 seats were counted. Two formal summonses were issued, but during another visit in August, Queenan found the seat number, 90, was still too high. Some fellow business owners on the mall were understandably peeved, and all because of something called the Parking Trust Account, established 20 years ago in Section 525-49E of the city code book. Theoretically, the more seats you have in your restaurant, the more people you’ll be bringing into town, and the more parking congestion this creates. To offset the problem, this fund was established. If a restaurant wants to increase its number of seats, it must pay into the trust at a rate of $5,000 for every four additional seats. Some restaurants, like Jack-

Page 16 Talk Of The Town ? From Page 14 son Mountain, forked over a lot of money when they wanted to renovate. Others found the rule too costly. So, why, people wanted to know, would Stewart’s not be subject to the same regulations? Some, including two former Cape May mayors we interviewed, thought that Stewart’s should be shut down by the city. Others thought that the political connections of one Stewart’s partner, North Wildwood Council President Patrick Rosenello, were leading to a delay in enforcement. Eventually, in court on August 28, Stewart’s was fined $600. A day later, at an administrative hearing, City Clerk Louise Cummiskey revoked Stewart’s mercantile license. The charges? “Fraud or misrepresentation in any application.” Stewart’s appealed the decision in front of council, and that body ultimately decided to uphold Cummiskey’s decision, eliciting

Thursday, March 21, 2013 cheers from the crowd. But Stewart’s kept their doors open. What’s more, they filed a lawsuit against the city. For an article published on October 9, we called then councilmember, now Deputy Mayor, Bill Murray. “They’re seeking an order directing the clerk to immediately issue a mercantile license. They have to show immediate and irreparable harm,” he explained. Flash forward to the March 12 meeting of the Planning Board. On the agenda was a discussion over Stewart’s request to increase their allowed seating from 48 to 92 — legally. We were feeling a little confused. After all, how does a business apply to change its mercantile license when it no longer has one? We emailed Louise Cummiskey, who told us this: “Stewart’s obtained a Mercantile License for the current year on February 20, 2013. As to the ‘equitable relief,’ the action is still pending.” But, at least, the seating issue is not still pending.

The Stewart’s partners — represented by William Kauffman — agreed to pay the $55,000 they owe into the parking trust, to verify their solid waste and recycling systems will be adequate for increased traffic, and to get approval from the water and sewer department. Several business owners on the mall — including Susan Tischler of Just For Laughs and Kaleidescope, Paul Bogle of The Original Fudge Kitchen, and Peter Karapanagiotis of Pano — spoke in favor of Stewart’s being granted this variance. “We see so many restaurants come and go, and the consistency is basically ridiculous,” Karapanagiotis said. “To see someone come in, sign a lease, and plan to be there for a long time, and do good things in the town... [George Karapanagiotis] and I are behind that 100%.” Deidre Hineline of the Pilot House was the only business owner to express concern that Stewart’s would be granted this variance. “Even though they

were given several citations last year, they continued to run the entire season with illegal seats and didn’t pay any attention to the citations or warnings by the city,” she said, “so I’d like to know, if this variance is granted, who’s going to monitor this?” When we caught up with the Pilot House manager Ed Nielsen later, he told us they did, in fact, believe “justice has been served.” Pam Smarro of Madame’s Port said the same. “As long as they pay for their seats, I think it’s great,” she said. We think so, too. And, as long as everyone plays by the rules, it should continue to stay that way.

For The Birds BIRDING may not be associated with the under-18 set in the same way that video games and skateboards are, but the hobby is continuing to garner attention from a younger crowd. “You see a great deal of young interns who come

Talk Of The Town ? From Page 16 here to monitor shore birds,” said Debra Crossley, a self-described “backyard birder.” Enter the Cape May’s Young Birders Club, meeting for the first time on April 2 at 4pm. We called Debra, whose spearheading the effort, and she explained that Cape Island is the ideal place for such a group. To begin with, this IS the capital of the birding universe. “Cape May is the perfect location for everything that’s migrating north and south,” Debra said. “It’s never boring.” But it’s also home to a talented pool of local birders — like Louise Zemaitis, Mark Garland, and Debra’s husband Richard Crossley, author of the Crossley ID Guide series — who will lead the monthly sessions. “This is a group of well-rounded naturalists with insight not just about birds, but butterflies and other wildlife,” Debra said. And the kids who come out don’t need merely to be inter-

ested in birds, either. Young photographers, environmentalists, and artists might find their niche with this club. “We encourage kids to bring their cameras and sketch books,” Debra said. And a rainy day might just appeal to the more crafty child; indoor activities could include such projects as bird feeder making. “Study after study has shown that kids who go out into the natural world are healthier and happier,” Debra said. “That’s the goal. It’s about enjoying the outdoors, which is such a difficult thing these days with so much time spent on computers.” But even more than that, it’s about cultivating the next generation of conservationists. “These are the wardens of the future,” Debra said. Meetings of the Young Birders, which are free, begin at the Cape May Point State Park Office. Ten to 18 is the target age group. For more information, call Debra at 609-846-3807.

3/15: PAL Comedy Night Social Fundraiser At Convention Hall

«

Three hundred people turned up to watch three professional comedians — Mick Thomas, Joey Vega, and Keith Anthony — perform at the eighth annual Police Athletic League’s Comedy Night Social, which returned to Convention Hall this year (since the old hall was deemed structurally unsound in 2008, the comedy night had been happening in West Cape May Banquet Hall). All of the proceeds will benefit the PAL, or Police Athletic League, which oversees nine traveling basketball teams comprised of approximately 90 kids from third to eighth grade. “I’ve gotten a ton of positive feedback on the night,” said Officer Tony Genaro, Cape May PAL president, and the event’s DJ. “There was definitely a huge local crowd, but also a lot of people I hadn’t seen before. I think we’ve managed to get a bit of a following, because people have heard it’s a great time.” As for the eats? “I’d like to say thanks to David Craig of Lucky Bones for donating all of the food, beer, and wine,” Tony said. Thanks also to all of the people who donated to the raffle... there was $2,500 worth of prizes given away (not including the $500 that the winner of the 50/50 walked with!) Congrats to all involved.

The Undertow

T

Terry O’Brien’s weekly column... it’s about nothing and everything, all at the same time

HANK you to the (literally) hundreds of you that wished me a happy birthday last week on the Facebook. I’d break balls about it being the easiest thing in the world to do (next to “working” for Congress) seeing as how there’s a big red reminder in the corner saying “Click here to wish Terry a Happy Birthday!” But that would do two things. 1. It would wrongfully devalue the honest and sincere birthday wishes sent by so many of you. 2. It would point out what a total jerk I am for not even doing that much. (I prefer the day after “How’s the hangover?” post.) I did the same thing I do every year; nothing. (It’s awesome timing visited upon me by some past karmic sin that I and my wife have birthdays within three weeks of each other at our brokest time of year. She got three-day old roses. I got a four-pack of Fruit of the Loom t-shirts.) As part of that nothing we went to a local eatery that shall remain nameless because it was probably the worst meal I’ve been served that I haven’t

cooked myself in 15 years. Cath’s was mildly less hideous. But, it’s a place we frequent often so we’re chalking it up to bad timing (sensing a trend?) and the fact that every restaurant, one-star to four-star, serves a clunker every once in a while. We’ll go back. And have sandwiches and pizza. Speaking of pizza, the family dined at Capiletti’s on Texas Avenue last Wednesday. If you’ve been, you know it’s a topnotch pie. If you haven’t, stop what you’re doing right now and go grab a slice (it’s next to the Wawa). The XL Pie plus four drinks for $17.75 is a deal, but you will need four people to finish it. They were having a Little League fundraiser (thanks guys!) and that,

plus food, was enough to rouse me from my cave in Erma. As caves go, it’s pretty nice. The boys were entertained by the multi-talented, multi-tasking Joseph Oswald, who was flipping burgers, frying wings, doing math on demand, and telling me all about the Haunted Mansion show he’s writing for Elaine’s this season. He tells me they gutted out and redid the dinner theater this winter. We did the same thing back in ’96, if by “gutted” he means “painted the stage.” Joe also pops out to Terry O’ke on occasion; I hope to see him at the Mad Batter on Tuesday the 26th. Which reminds me… Tuesday the 26th I’ll be doing Terry O’ke at the Mad Batter, 7-10pm! This is my only chance to promote the gig so please clip this paragraph and stick it… to your fridge. Terry O’ke and the Mad Batter should prove a nice match, because I know every time I go in there I think, “This place is really nice… but it could sure use a drunken Scotsman and bearded octopus painter screaming a Killers song.” And now, we’ll have that.

Thanks to Jason Black for brokering the deal. Acoustic Mayhem 1.0 (Will Knapp) and 2.0 (Bill Caterini) have had a nice little run at Rio Station on Thursday nights (oh wait… Ding!) hosting an open mic that nobody ever open mics at. But it’s cool, we like singing. But we’d love to share the stage with you. (Well, not you…) It’s $.25 wing night, and they have beer. That’s 2 food groups. And I shouldn’t say nobody plays at open mic. Rio Station bartender Sean Haggerty strummed a few tunes which he played pretty well considering he’s a drummer. (Why am I suddenly reminded of that Far Side cartoon where the elephant is in the concert hall, staring at a piano, sweating bullets, thinking, “I can’t play this thing… I’m a cellist!”) Anyway, Sean is a good dude who’s always there to bail me out when karaoke isn’t busy (the first 8 minutes of the night) and never yells at me no matter how many times I tell him STP’s “Interstate Love Song” was the first song I ever sang for money. Sue Gift also sang with us (“Landslide”) and if you’ve ever heard her powerhouse version of “Broken Wing” rattle the windows on a Friday night, you’d be stunned to learn what a nervous wreck she is. Sue, you’re just going to have to accept the fact that you’re an amazing singer and move on with your life. Not sure if we’ll be there beyond March, but I heartily endorse you going out to see any and all local live music as often as possible. Billy Joel Night at the Anglesea Pub is coming up swiftly (3/30, 8:30pm). If you wish to attend or perform there is an event page on Facebook with all the info. It’s going to be epic and an opportunity for all of you to experience international travel. West Side Market is the International Date Line, no? Morey’s Piers is ramping up and I had the privilege of (was conscripted into) attending leadership training weekend; 20 hours over two days. A 9am

class the morning after daylight savings time is AWESOME! But it’s really a pretty great experience, and affords me the opportunity to brag about having the highest score in class (99.4%). And what have I been doing in the two weeks since that training weekend? Painting floors in the student apartments. But I shall paint those damn floors like Picasso did in that movie about that artist. Pollock. Also, if I drop the paint… it’s okay. There’s a new band out there making the rounds by the name of DNR. Now normally I would rather cut off my own toe than promote a musical act that wasn’t mine, but DNR is comprised of all guys from the Morey’s Piers maintenance crew. Rich Peterson, Billy Fisher, Kevin Unruh, John McLaughlin and Andy Stafford play a nice mix of heavy and notso heavy tunes. And if their stuff breaks they can fix it. Kate Chadwickism of the Week: “Torrential downpour. Good thing my umbrella is safe and dry in the backseat of my car.” So I’m in week two or three (it’s all so blurry) of my re-entry into the world of working out in front of people at North Beach Health Club, and I don’t think I’ve embarrassed myself yet… though I do have my ear buds in when I’m running on the treadmill… who knows what kinds of noises I’m making. And oh the smells. But something must be working because people have told me I look a little thinner (granted, it would have been hard to look any fatter). So far I’m still “only” doing 20 minutes of stretching followed by 40 hellish minutes on the treadmill, but that “only” is a hell of a lot more than I usually do. So go suck a lemon! I look forward to the day I don’t crawl home in agony. Um… all of that is meant to portray the positive impact NHBC has had on my life, but it’s hard to sound upbeat when you’re sweating from your eyes… Only 253 Days ’til the Ender’s Game movie. ’Til next week, don’t get caught in The Undertow.

LCMR Student Of The Week

«

Lower Cape May Regional High School senior Zach Valcarce of Villas achieved the 100th win of his wrestling career in a match against Vineland. Zach has been wrestling for seven years and now has a trophy and banner commemorating his milestone. He aims to win the district regionals and place in the top eight in the state tournament. Wrestling, however, is not the only sport that Zach has been involved in during his high school career. He has participated in cross country for two years, and football and spring track for four years. “Stick with it” is Zach’s advice to younger students interested in getting a start in wrestling or any other varsity sport. His father, Joe Valcarce, is who got him started in wrestling, and Zach has been improving ever since. In the future, Zach hopes to attend Rider University and walk on to their Division I wrestling team. He is planning on majoring in business or education.

Nine bags of trash. Nine bags of recycling. And 10 tires. That’s right... tires. That’s the amount of trash that 13 children and a 10 adults were able to collect from Cape Island Creek. It all started because Zach Nickerson is the AmeriCorps New Jersey Watershed Ambassador for Cape May County, meaning he is responsible for water testing, and he conducts educational programs about water pollution. “The Clean Committee coordinator told me that Cape Island Creek could really use a clean-up,” he told us. “I realized it was right behind Cape May City Elementary, so I decided to get the kids involved.” Zach also told us that part of the reason Cape May was spared so much damage from Hurricane Sandy is that we’ve invested so much into our wetlands and dunes. “It’s just one more reason to keep them healthy,” he said.

The Old Fogey

I

Ah, those good old Cape May days... by Jackson D’Catur

AM not, as you know, a fan of computerizing devices, in part because I am sure they will take over the world and reduce us all to slaves, in part because I have never mastered the “mouse” and inadvertently ordered 300 cases of baked beans, a gross of limecolored Speedos (I wanted “burnt amber”) and a year’s supply of deliveries of some faddish diet that seems to involve prodigious quantities of broccoli and has given me fiendish wind. But I was, at the urging of my faithful manservant, Kitchener, having rather a ball on that “Google Street View” facility, which is truly astounding. As a result of a day spent virtually walking every inch of our town’s sidewalks I have discovered some interesting things. These include: a weak spot in the D’Catur Mansion’s defences that could have allowed the determined intruder access to the cellar (and the delights therein), an illegal still, several enthusiastic home plantations of recreational drugs and, most fascinatingly, a delightfully artistic and blushingly graphic

image of two of this town’s more noted citizens engaging in what at first I assumed to be that trendy hot naked yoga I read about in the liberal magazines I have f lown in from New York City, but that Kitchener discretely explained — through the aid of a sketchbook and an HB pencil — was in fact a lewd act of great imagination and implausible f lexibility. They were, if you will forgive my French, In Flagrante. That they were doing it in the building they were, at the window they chose and with the drapes open is a matter of some

Contemporary & Estate Jewelry Large Stone Diamond Rings

puzzlement, but I assume they are in fact Exhibitionalists who derived some thrill from the risk of discovery: for sure the chap was in a high state of excitement, a detail that will haunt me for many years to come. I cannot, for the sake of discretion, tell you their names, or the exact location. I will, though, say that if you are strolling the virtual highways of Cape May, you should concentrate your search in the city center and look carefully for a window on the second f loor of a building of some beauty and historical note. I have alerted the editor of this fine newspaper, as he is, I sense, a man who likes to break stories of national importance if they are in the public interest and feature notables in the nip. In the meantime, dear hearts, to the first person who finds the window and the copulators, I offer a case of Champagne and a fine cigar. In the meantime, I am back to The Google to determine if I have sighted the long lost Temple of Artemis (in Stimpson Lane) or just a hot tub with a fat chap lounging in.

Looking From Lower

Local heroes, happenings and a few heckles... a monthly column by Lower Township Deputy Mayor Norris Clark

N

O ONE contested the column’s opening contention — that Lower Township is the real Exit Zero — so we can now consider the matter

settled.

Local Heroes Our local heroes this month come in the form of the whole Hume family of Sunset Beach. Marvin Hume and his children Kathy and Sharon, and son, Larry, have not only made Sunset Beach a nationallyrecognized beach destination, they have established the beach as a national place of honor. Recently, Sunset Beach was voted #24 (out of 25) of America’s “Best Beaches” by the followers of the international hospitality-rating site known as TripAdvisor. com. It was the only beach ranked in New Jersey. No doubt this rank is a testament to the beach and beautiful sunsets, but also to the moving patriotic f lag ceremonies that the family has held for over 40 years. For many 1000s of evenings, the Hume family has raised and lowered a “casket f lag” that has been donated by the family of fallen

veterans, and so, they have consecrated Sunset Beach as hollowed ground. The Hume’s patriotic spirit is moving across LowerTownship. Just last Friday, over 100 students, teachers and administration of Lower Cape May Regional High School, gathered for their own f lag lowering ceremony (organized by biology teacher David Pacevich, our hero last month) in honor of the sacrifice of local veterans. (See pictures in this paper next week). Gene Sole was remembered, and Marvin Hume, himself a navy veteran of WWII who took shrapnel in the Battle of Saipan,

was on hand to help another generation remember, salute, and say thanks. Happenings: Thanks to Lower Township Parks and Recreation, the Easter bunny will bring back Spring during the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 23, beginning at 10am, at the Freeman Douglass Memorial Park, next to the Lower Cape May Regional High School. Children up to the fourth grade are encouraged to join in the hunt. A Few Heckles: We noted a few heckles about TripAdvisor.com misplacing America’s Top 25 Sunset Beach in “Cape May,” rather than in Lower Township. But we forgive the editors of TripAdvisor for two reasons. One, Lower Township includes much of what we call Cape May. Two, they responded to our calls, and fixed the error. So the world is now as it should be: Sunset Beach honors our veterans, as it honors Lower Township — home to one of America’s top 25 beaches, one of America’s best lighthouses, not to mention home to the “world’s most beautiful sunsets.”

3/9: Kristi Coombs Visits Joanne Reagan Dance Studio

«

Did you hear that Madonna was in Cape May recently? Okay, not really Madonna, but a Madonna tribute artist (impersonator, if you want to be politically incorrect) named Kristi Coombs. Kristi, a native of North Cape May who graduated from Lower Cape May Regional High School in 1990, studied dance at the Joanne Reagan Studio on Seashore Road. As a young girl, she toured 21 states performing in Annie, oftentimes as Annie. Her Broadway debut came at the age of 11. Now, in addition to her tribute work, she serves as a master class instructor and private coach for the Broadway Artists Alliance in Manhattan. But on March 9, when Kristi returned to her former stomping (pirouetting?) grounds to teach a class at the Joanne Reagan Studio, she served only as a role model to some very lucky local girls. “It was unreal how excited the students were,” Joanne Reagan, Kristi’s former teacher, told us. “I’ve been instructing for 45 years, and time brings experiences. I’ve been blessed to have had some pretty great ones.”

Here’s To Your Health

A weekly column about getting fit and feeling your best ... by Mark Chamberlain of North Beach Health Club

T

HREE, TWO, ONE, GO! Is a chant familiar to all CrossFit athletes as it begins each workout in every gym, garage, playground, or empty lot. Wherever there is room and excited people there will be CrossFit! Be it rocks or dumbells, plastic drums filled with water on the end of a pole or an Olympic barbell, a high-end bike or a trail to run on, there will be CrossFit. CrossFitters are irrepressible! The CrossFit Games, sponsored by Reebok, started last week and 1000s of athletes are competing at their local CrossFit Affiliates around the globe; top prize for male and female winners is $250,000. CrossFit is the fastest growing fitness business in the world with new Affiliates opening every day. (The closest local Affiliate is at North Beach Crossfit of Cape May). Usually when a newer fitness protocol takes hold, like Tae Bo did a few years back, it follows a predictable trajectory; quickly up and just as quickly down.So what’s dfferent? Crossfit started in the year 2000 with Coach Greg Glassman training the Santa

Clara, California Police force. His expertise was in gymnastics and he wanted to combine different training regimens including weight lifting, kettlebells, running, power lifting and more. Over the years he has recruited some of the top names in those fields to do training seminars for the Affiliates and the level of skill has increased measurably. Many professional athletes and all branches of the military now use CrossFit both in the US and overseas. And it has continued to grow and appeal to a wide range of people who never considered themselves athletic. It turns out that that competitive

fire burns in many otherwise fairly normal people. So just getting in shape to look a certain way or lose weight becomes secondary to improving your FRAN time. (FRAN is a particularly short, hard workout that acts as a benchmark of total fitness to Crossfitters world over). It’s not unusual to see a teenager and a grandmother on the mat discussing their latest workout with the same level of excitement. Which leads us back to the Games. Last week’s workout was posted live on Wednesday night and there was an online face-off between a woman from Iceland and a woman from the States held in a South Brooklyn warehouse-style gym. Both superb athletes doing exactly the same 10-minute workout and being cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd, must of whom would be tackling the same workout over the next few days, posting it to the Games site and watching to see how they compare. On this night, Annie from Iceland (reigning world champ)bettered her opponent by 29 reps: 360 vs 331 of presses, dead-lifts and box jumps. Irrepressible.

The Answer Lady

T

HE Answer Lady invites inquiries from gentle readers on all manner of relationship quandaries, matters of the heart and ethics. If you’d like to send a query, write to info@exitzero.us. Dear Answer Lady I am hosting a large dinner party in a couple of weeks. I love to entertain and I’m looking forward to hosting my friends and family. What I don’t like as much is when guests insist upon helping me with cleanup, and I have one family member in particular who always follows me into the kitchen and picks up a dish towel. How do I get this person to back off, sit down, and enjoy the party? — Hostile Hostess Dear Hostess Have you ever thought about leading by example, dear? Perhaps you could sit down, relax and enjoy the party yourself, and leave the clean-up until the guests have gone. There’s nothing less relaxing than an over-anxious hostess whisking one’s plate away before one can even put one’s fork down. There can be a couple of reasons for

Wise answers to perplexing questions

your guest’s behavior. Perhaps she is not into crowds and prefers her socializing on a one-to-one basis. Maybe she genuinely enjoys your company and this alone time in the kitchen is something she looks forward to when visiting your home. Maybe you have some hilarious aprons from Just For Laughs and they tickle her funny bone. Maybe she’s simply a clean freak, and is just itching to make an anonymous call to Dan Matthews and the cleaning crew over at Good Housekeepers to PLEASE send you some informa-

tion because she CANNOT believe you live this way, and her washing the dishes for you is the only way she will sleep that night. (In which case, the Answer Lady suggests you hand her an apron and suggest she start with the guest bathroom; that will nip things in the bud.) But the Answer Lady digresses. Why not simply fill the sink with soapy water, let the dishes have a good soak, and spend as much time as possible with your friend and family? That’s what entertaining is all about, after all. The dishes will still be there after the guests have gone. Dear Answer Lady My kids are teenagers, and I was wondering: how old is too old for Easter baskets? — Peter Rabbit Dear Peter Never, ever is one too old for Easter baskets. If your children have become more sophisticated (or as sophisticated as a teenager can get), the Answer Lady highly recommends the offerings at Louisa’s Chocolate Bar. No peeps here, but an amazing selection of artisanal chocolates and other delightful confections.

The Movie Column

A

This week, Dottie Knapp, Cape May Film Society President, reviews “OZ the Great and Powerful”

NYBODY remember, a zillion years ago, seeing the first IMAX movie at the Air and Space Museum? I didn’t get air sick, but clearly my stomach didn’t like being up in the hot air balloon. Keep that in mind when deciding to see Oz The Great and Powerful, and remember you have to choose how you will view it. It was only available in 2D at the time I saw it, but after watching it, and in spite of getting a little motion sickness in earlier attempts to watch IMAX, I was definitely sorry I wasn’t getting to see this movie in IMAX or 3D at least. I could tell as soon as the hot air balloon took off that I was missing the most essential part of the movie. So many times our only choice is to pay for a 3D movie, and maybe there are a few scenes that really use the medium, but usually it is nothing that’s worth the extra dollars. My biggest complaint is for the ones that aren’t even meant for 3D; they’re made that way because it’s “in” to be in 3D. I plan on seeing Oz again, in IMAX if I can, but

There’s no place like... an IMAX theatre, says our reviewer... definitely in 3D. Critics have panned the film and just about everybody in it. So I guess that leaves us with the story and the screenwriters. Mitchell Kapner and David LindsayAbaire told a really good story. I liked James Franco... he did sleaze very well, and Zach Braff is obviously having fun. The witches were beautiful and the (oops can’t say this part as it would give things away), so let’s

just say the witches are beautiful. The costumes were great, very storybook-esque. I was disappointed in Glinda’s dresses; the dress of original Glinda Billie Burke was as iconic as the ruby slippers. I grew up thinking that I would never see a more beautiful gown then that one. It would have been fun if they had copied it for Michelle Williams’ final scene. I saw The Wizard of Oz for the first time in the theater that was on what was left of the boardwalk in Avalon back in the 1950s. A friend took me and put up with my irritating comments that it wasn’t in color; I didn’t enjoy the first part of the movie until the second time I saw it. So I will tell you up front, it starts out black and white, but it goes to color. Guess when. Note: New Dates for 2013 Cape May Film Festival: October 25-27! Have you seen a good film lately? Why not drop us an email to let us know? You don’t have to write a word! All you need to do is send an email to capemayfilm@hotmail.com or call/text 609-326FEST and we take care of the rest!

3/5: Dog Obedience Graduation At West Cape May Banquet Hall

«

We asked Carolyn MacMullen of Cape May County Dog Obedience Training Club, the group that’s been training dogs for over 35 years, for the cutest thing she’s ever seen a pup do. “I had one show up to graduation wearing a graduation cap,” she said. And because one cute dog story is never enough for us, we asked some of the other pup owners you’ll see in these pages why their dog is the most adorable. Donna Carbone, mom to a golden retriever called Kaylee said, “As soon as we sit on the couch, she has to jump up and be right next to us.” Cathy Phillip, mom to a standard snow bear dog called Gabby, said, “All you have to say is ‘puppy nap time,’ and she puts herself to bed.” Vince Somma, father to a cocker spaniel called Sandy May (after Cornelius May, for whom Cape May is named), said, “Sometimes, it sounds like she’s talking like a human. Recently, she stood by the back door, barking and howling. I said, ‘What are you doing?’ and it sounded like she said, ‘I don’t know’ back. I told her if she doesn’t know, then neither do I!” And last but not least, Alycia Lewis told us Ryot, her pit bull, still thinks he’s a baby. “He doesn’t realize he’s 65 pounds,” she said. All together now... awwww!

3/4: Juggling Class With James Rana At First Presbyterian Church

«

They do exist... clowns, that is. James Rana of Teaneck, New Jersey learned to wear all of the appropriate clowning hats — juggler, animal ballooner, stilt walker, you name it — before working with the Big Apple Circus. And this month — thanks to East Lynne Theater Company, who sponsored the event — he was able to share his juggling skills with the Cape May community. “We had over 20 people at this class, representing all ages,” he told us. “Juggling may look impossible, but it just needs to be broken down, step by step.” So what’s the craziest thing James has ever juggled? “An apple, a bowling pin, and a machete.” Maybe the Cape May crew can tackle that in the next class! In the meantime, you’ll be hearing a lot more about James, as he’s written an adaptation of the The Legend of Sleepy Hollow that will be premiering at East Lynne. Look for it from July 24 through August 31.

Activity Of The Week

E

A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Try A Beer Tasting.

ASTER’S coming — why not hop on over to a beer tasting? Holiday parties call for more than plain, boring beer. Sometimes you want something a little more special, and that’s where Cape May Brewery comes in. Beer is an ancient beverage, and beermaking has always been a part of American life. Native Americans made a corn-based ale long before Columbus. The Pilgrims were kicked off the Mayflower early because the sailors feared a beer shortage on the voyage home. Colonial Americans drank beer because water was dangerous — settlers in Virginia were particularly skittish, blaming contaminated wells for deaths in the Jamestown colony. Beer made up a significant portion of a person’s daily calorie intake. Revolutionary soldiers were allotted one quart of beer per day and Civil War-era hospitals stocked beer. People drank it warm, because cold beer was thought to disturb the digestion. Cold beer didn’t come into favor until the late 19th century, when both mass production and refrigeration became common.

Growlers from Cape May Brewing Company The millions of gallons of “near beer” produced during prohibition are said to be the cause of the lingering American preference for weaker beers. Prohibition also killed many small breweries, and large factory-produced beers dominated the 20th century, though people still bought beer from local taverns in growlers — half-gallon containers of beer that made a growling noise when gas escaped. Craft brewing really took off in the late 1970s,

just in time for the birth of foodie culture. Beer can be matched with food just as wine can, but beer doesn’t take itself as seriously. Experts recommend pairing lager with shellfish, stout with oysters, wheat beer with crab cakes, and ale with burgers, but you can ignore the rules and drink what you like. You can also experiment with beer “cocktails” — mix stout with lager for a “Black and Tan” or stout with champagne for a “Black Velvet”. Plato said it was a wise man who invented beer, and the folks at Cape May Brewing Company seem to be both wise and witty. They are having fun with their two-year old business, and so are their customers. The brewery uses regional ingredients to create small batch beers. Their porter is made with local honey, and their Cranberry Wheat is made with cranberries from the Pinelands. Buy a growler to take home, proper beer glasses, stout soap, or a souvenir tee shirt. Cape May Brewing Company is open for tours and tastings from 4-8pm Wednesdays and Thursdays and 12-8pm Fridays and Saturdays on Hornet Road. Go to capemaybrewery.com.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

Three beautiful dogs from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 465-8923

«

DYNASTY may be a little large, but she wants nothing more than to be a lap dog! She’s very affectionate, always trying her best to be cuddly despite her size. She still needs a little more socialization, so she would be best in a home without smaller children or cats. However, she gets along just fine with other dogs. She can’t wait to arrive at her new home — just look at that smile! Dynasty’s adoption fee is $95.

«

FROSTY is a friendly, fun-loving mixed-breed puppy who’s only seven months old. He’s medium-sized, high-energy and playful, with such a sweet temperament. Being a puppy, Frosty has a lot to learn. His new owner must provide him with regular training, along with daily exercise and lots of attention! With a patient and devoted owner, Frosty will become a wonderful companion. His adoption fee is $95.

Robert Panaccio, VMD Robert Moffatt, VMD Nancy Reilly, VMD

«

TOOTSIE came to the shelter last October as a stray, so unruly that she couldn’t even be walked. Now she enjoys leisurely walks on her harness and is affectionate to everyone she meets. She learned very quickly, and now she even knows some tricks! Occasionally, she doesn’t like other dogs, but she will adjust to almost any family dynamic with positive reinforcement and continued training. You can adopt Tootsie for $95.

GEORGE AND JERRY are brothers who have been together at the shelter for almost two years... don’t you think it’s about time someone gave them a chance at a more permanent home? They arrived as kittens and have been waiting since then to go to a new home — together. They come as a set... Their adoption fee together is $20.

«

CHAUSSER is a purebred Devon Rex. He was surrendered by his owner because there was a new baby in the house, and nobody had time for him! Poor Chausser lives on attention and affection, and needs an owner who will make a fuss over him. If you think this could be you, come see him at the shelter. His adoption fee is $20.

«

SIERRA was brought to the shelter because her owner passed away, leaving her alone. She is a very sweet little gal, and would love for someone to show her the love she’s lost. She would be great as a companion for a single person. If you think you can spare some love for Sierra, come see her at the shelter. Her adoption fee is $20.

3/2: Gretchen Whitman’s 50th Birthday Party At Cape May Winery

«

Gretchen Whitman, Director of the Nature Center, originally planned on a mellow birthday celebration — she wanted to sit in front of Cape May Winery’s new fireplace and enjoy a glass of wine. Mark Allen of South Jersey Marina, Gretchen’s partner, thought this sounded okay... but he had something else in mind. “She is so important to both the community and her family and friends,” Mark said. “And she’s so easy to get along with. People just like being with her.” So, on the big day, 10 family members, some of whom traveled from as far as Massachusetts, and about 20 friends joined the couple. Among them was 70-year-old Dan Sabatino, a performer and former doowop singer. He brought along his karaoke machine, which was enjoyed not only by party-goers, but others at the winery who couldn’t help but join the fun. After, the guests headed back to Gretchen’s for an Italian meal. “It was low-key,” she told us. “The winery is such a great place to host an event.”

3/1: 7th Annual Soup-er Bowl Event At West Cape May Banquet Hall

«

The Center for Community Arts grew out of kitchen table discussion that took place in 1995 between six female artists with one goal — to foster creativity, community building, and appreciation for diversity through arts and humanities programs, particularly those which serve historically underserved groups. Among the organization`s greatest accomplishments? Saving the formerly segregated Franklin Street School so that it might be rehabilitated into its current role, a community cultural center. In 2007, CCA also started broadcasting from WCFA-LP 101.5, a volunteer-based radio station popular for it’s jazz and community programming — including an open mic segment which showcases Pilot House performers, a public affairs show, and a show for young people featuring DJ Gingerbeard Carson (son of EZ employee, Diane Carson). At the 7th Annual Super-Bowl, $7,000 was raised for this radio station. The event featured homemade soups and desserts, a salad bar, and live auction with over 28 items donated by local businesses and nonprofits. “I’d like to give a shout-out to Michael Craig at the Washington Inn,” said CCA’s Executive Director Bernadette Matthews. “He donated the linens,the wait staff, the dishes, the bar licence, and made sure everything was set up beautifully.” Congrats to all involved!
