The Police Blotter

Every week we feature quirky police reports from small towns across America. Found on the website www.smalltownmisfit.com. RICHLAND, PA: A naked 18-year-old male dove headfirst through the open window of a police car. The officer, who was in the car at the time, was injured, as were two paramedics who attempted to treat the naked man. – Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Learn Russian With Tanya

YOU probably couldn’t throw a stone in Cape May without hitting an Eastern European person, though we would condemn such an act. We at Exit Zero warmly embrace our Commie Cousins (we’re joking!) and to this end offer a weekly lesson to help you communicate. Please note – the “Russian” we are printing is our phonetic interpretation. Do some people in Russia also think that clowns are scary? Liudi v Rossii tozhe schitaut, chto klouny nemnogo zhutkovaty? And, here is how your Russian-speaking friend is likely to respond: Gde-to est’ liudi, kotorye ih NE boiatsa? I schitau, chto strah k klounam universalen. Which translates to: Are there some people who DON’T think clowns are scary? I thought the fear of clowns was pretty much universal. –Tanya Zotava

Weird Word Of The Week

Jaculate Get your mind out of the gutter! This word actually just refers to the act of throwing or hurling.

A Picture From The Past

Don Pocher

THIS is one of the largest blimp hangers ever built, a testament to the strategic importance of Cape May when it was built in 1919. The hanger was to house the British SSZ-23 airship. Shortly after arriving in America the dirigible was deemed impractical because of its size and operating costs. It was moved to another location then dismantled two years later. The hanger was demolished in the 1960s, but its concrete foundation is still visible at the Coast Guard base. Ben Miller

Random Fact Of The Week

GLEN “Frosty” Little was a Boss Clown with Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. He is the only living Master Clown, a title that was only ever bestowed upon four clowns by Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey.

Fortune Cookie Of The Week J If you take a single step to your journey, you will succeed; it’s not best to fail. J ONCE a week, the folks at Exit Zero eat at Cape Orient, the island’s fine Asian restaurant. Sometimes we find pearls of wisdom at the end of our meal. And sometimes we don’t. The above fortune cookie was eaten with a plethora of sushi - rainbow, dragon, and spicy tuna rolls. Please note: Any typos are not ours, but those of the fortune cookie manufacturers. We print them as we find them.

Ramblings From The Editor

I

Ideas, idle gossip and occasionally important odds ’n’ ends... by Jack Wright

HAVE always wanted to go see a movie on the beach ever since the Chamber of Commerce launched the event a couple years ago. What could be better – watching a fun movie on Cape May’s beautiful beach, under the stars, with the waves lapping in the background, and it’s free, too. I don’t know why it took me until last Thursday to finally go, but that’s neither here nor there. I couldn’t miss Jaws, which I believe to be one of the most under-rated movies of all time. I mean, everyone knows it was a blockbuster and great fun to watch, but I also think the characters and the dialogue and some of the filming was Oscar-class. When my girl and I first walked on to the beach my heart sank. There were around 10 people gathered around the large inflatable screen and we couldn’t hear a word from the screen. “The speakers are on the other side,” said one of the folks sitting on the beach. (I think it was Scott Swain, actually, but I couldn’t be sure in the dark, and I’m not sure why he and the others were sitting on the quiet side of the screen.) Sure enough, we walked around to the other side and suddenly it looked like a scene from Woodstock (if the festival had been located on a beach rather than the hills of the Catskills – and yes, I am also exaggerating quite a bit). There had to be around 400 people there, either lying on blankets, sitting on chairs or, in the case of the ingenious Mullock boys, reclining on a sofa carved out of the sand. We had come unprepared and settled for lying on a blanket. But still, it was a beautiful thing, even if I had to switch from leaning on my left shoulder to my right every 15 minutes. Congratulations to the chamber for running another successful season of Movies on the

dering why some people are treating a building that is less than 20 years old as some kind of historica talisman – let it go, people. Let’s move on with the plan that city council recently voted on or I, and many folks like me, really WILL think a certain group of you have nothing better to do than cause trouble. HERE is some VERY good news for our subscribers, who number 431 in 25 states. Many of them have to wait more than a week to see Exit Zero, which is how it goes when the post office delivers bulk mail. It’s the same for any other publication, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating for our devoted readers. And this is why we are happy to announce that you can now read the whole of Exit Zero online, with a rather nifty little page-turning device. And it’s free! So, if you live in Honolulu, Hawaii (hello, Majken Mechling), or Boulder, Colorado (hello, Edmund Simmons), or Jackson, Mississippi (hello, Carol Hammond) you will be able to read Exit Zero on Wednesday morning, just a couple hours after it is delivered to our office. And if you cancel your subscription, we’re okay with that because we don’t make any money from them - it’s really just a public service. We want you to be able to read our peppy periodical. So go online right now and see what I’m talking about. Visit www.exitzero.us FINALLY, I recently returned from a trip to Europe, where, among other things, I witnessed, in the Polish mountains, the marriage of Maciej Nabrdalik, the brilliant photographer who helped me launch Exit Zero. I also hatched a plan that hopefully will lead to some of you visiting my favorite town in Scotland – indeed, my second favorite place in the world after Cape May. Watch this space...

Beach, although I should add that it’s not over – this Thursday (tomorrow) the wonderful ET is showing. The movie starts at 8:30pm. As I sat there watching it was hard not to think about the building lurking in the background – old convention hall – and what is to become of it. Regular readers will know that I was very much in favor of the beautiful building concept that two-thirds of the people of Cape May voted for in a referendum nearly two years ago. Since then, as most of you will know, there has been a public debate that’s been a lot of things – highly democratic, feisty, tense, unseemly and at times farcical. And still we don’t have a definite plan. We’ve already lost the summer of 2011, and the earliest a hall could be built is 2012, meaning a four-year gap without a convention hall, which has been a terrible thing for certain Cape May businesses. As we stand right now a special committee set up by city council has chosen a new plan – a scheme called design number six. This calls for a one-floor building slightly larger than the current one, and it would necessitate the demolition of the Solarium, which has itself been a controversial subject, though I am won-

Upcoming Events In Cool Cape May

Mark your calendar, alert your Blackberry... whatever you do, don’t miss these happenings!

P

ATRIOT soldiers of the Continental Army and Loyalist militia will bring the American Revolution to life on the grounds of Historic Cold Spring Village on Labor Day Weekend, September 4 and 5, from 10am to 4:30pm for the Village’s popular annual Revolutionary War Encampment. Authentically-clad and equipped living history reenactors will recreate camps of Continental and Loyalist troops. Visitors can see demonstrations of drill, weapons, equipment and camp life. Civilian re-enactors will demonstrate the role played by typical Americans of the period in supporting the army. For the first time, the Village will be featuring Loyalist Hessians during the Revolution. “This is one of my favorite events; New Jersey played a vital role in the Revolution and the re-enactors do a fantastic job of bringing that story to life for our visitors,” said Jim Stephens, HCSV Deputy Director for Education and Interpretation. Stephens will be giving a special presentation on The Story of Old Glory at 12noon both days of the event, which features the story and a collection of the history

of the Unites States flag. Admission is $8, $7 for seniors and $6 for children. For more information, call (609) 8982300, ext. 10 or visit the Village website at www. hcsv.org. The Old Grange Restaurant, located at the Seashore Road entrance, is open for lunch and dinner with breakfast service on the weekends, and can be contacted at (609) 884-0114. The Ice Cream Parlor and Bakery are open during Village hours of operation, and The Country Store will be holding special fall hours. WEST Cape May again celebrates the famous Jersey Tomato with the West Cape May Tomato Festival. On Saturday, September 4, 2010 in Wilbraham Park from 9-5, vendors selling all kinds of tomato related items will line the park. Tomato T-shirts, Tomato pottery, Tomato jewelry along with tomato tacos, tomato pie and fresh ripe jersey tomatoes will be for sale. There will also be antiques, art, massages, etc. Bluebone, the local favorite band, will play and the Philly Gravy Wars will be a topic of comical discussion. The Jersey Tomato Festival benefits the West Cape May Shade Tree Commission and

The life and times of a waitress in Cool Cape May... by Molly Stone

’VE waited tables in Cape May for two years and if I’ve learned anything it’s how to read people, especially couples. I can spot a first date from across a dimly-lit dining room. He puffs out his chest when he orders New York Strip Steak, rare, with potatoes cooked in veal stock. From her, there’s a look of regret for not having ordered the soup each time she carefully slides a messy bit of drippy, leafy salad between her painted lips. For these couples, the conversation is an exercise in sounding as intelligent and adorable as possible, which is so consuming they don’t notice if the wine is warm, the meal takes an hour to hit the table, or the dining room is too cold/hot/bright/dark/ugly/ loud to enjoy. Just as easy to spot are the couples who’ve been together for so long they’ve run out of things to discuss. They sit in silence, aware of every tick of the clock before their table is ready or their food is served. For these folks, it seems, the dining room is always just a bit too cold/hot/bright/dark/ugly/loud to enjoy. “How do they expect us to see in here?” says

Martha, the grey-haired patron at table two, finally. “If I’d known we’d be eating in a cave,” her fella responds, “I’d have brought my flashlight.” And just like that, out of a mutual disgust for sub-par lighting, or sub-par silverware, or sub-par food, romance rekindles. My favorite couples are one part high roller (bald-headed, beer-bellied, and rich, rich, rich), and one part sexy mistress (longlegged, pouty-lipped, and young, young, young). He tries to impress her by ordering the most expensive bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, but she’s too busy gazing at the cute Bulgarian busboy, whose biceps flex each time he raises a

tray of half-eaten tiramisus, to notice. All this time around relationships can make a waitress painfully aware of her own single status. In the past year, I’ve arranged a zoo of stuffed animals for table six, I’ve brought dessert alongside a heart-shaped balloon for table one, and I regularly deliver complementary glasses of champagne to couples celebrating marriage or an anniversary. Perhaps the most aware I’ve been of my own singleness is in fielding pleas from mothers who want to set me up with “my handsome little Johnny.” This isn’t always the easiest thing to tactfully decline, but I’ve been on enough blind dates to know that handsome little Johnny is likely overweight, underworked, and really well-versed in Grand Theft Auto 2. But it isn’t all bad. I’m grateful to be a part of so many strangers’ big moments. So even though I complain, I don’t really mind delivering your singing balloons or diamond rings to the table, as long as I don’t have to go out with your son. And who knows, maybe some day I’ll meet a cute Bulgarian busboy of my own.

The Old Fogey

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

I

HAVE never understood the fear of clowns. I remember fondly my time with Charlie Crolla’s Travelling Circus of Freaks and Sports, where my best friends were the worldfamous “Homicidal Clowns” (motto: “You Will Die Laughing And Covered in Confetti!”), a pair of aged chimps who previously had been TV stars, and The Fat Bearded Tattooed Snake Lady (Ethel). Pa D’Catur had determined that my behaviour was not in keeping with that of Cape May’s First Family, and after Ma D’Catur wore out three leather belts endeavoring to beat the wildness out of me with no discernible effect, I was packed off for three years. Admittedly, the clown visage is not a pretty one – that huge painted smile is most often poorly concealing the least cheery of faces. The high rates of alcoholism, drug abuse and convictions for capital crimes (I base this only on the Homicidal Clowns, who were recruited largely from Death Row, rather like The Dirty Dozen, only with little tricycles and red noses)

make clowns rather tense company. But still, many’s the evening we sat around the fire, eating the delicious beef stew the troupe always cooked up on the final night of our stay in a new town, in which they often mixed lucky trinkets; once I chipped a tooth on a gold wedding band, and Ethel had a little velvet bag of what she called her “Fancies,” cuff links and other baubles salvaged from this dish over the years, and added to it, she said, with gifts from the gentlemen callers she

entertained in her painted caravan as we toured. For some reason the gentlemen always had to leave in a rush, Ethel said, so though we never saw them again, they left her precious keepsakes. She would pass these on to me, sometimes: my favorite was what I took to be a tiny gold statuette of Buddha. Almost a year passed before I realized it was a gold molar. And, to be fair, those clowns treated me like one of their own. A rough love, to be sure, and things happened that I will not ever speak of out loud, but still, it was a love and acceptance I never found again. Beyond gaining the camaraderie of that surly, bewigged band of merry-makers, I also learned the life skills of cooking, big-top rigging, knife throwing and how to drive a tiny pedal car at high speed whilst wearing three-foot-long shoes. Also, I can apply a face full of makeup in 20 seconds f lat, complete with a perfect tiny teardrop and little tufts of red hair. To this day, when I see a clown I tear up, hug him, and keep my stiletto dagger close at hand.

The Organic Column

T

A useful and inspiring guide to eating healthy, natural foods - by Katie Panamarenko

HE words “fair trade” and “free range” are often paired with “organic,” though they are not one and the same. Kenny from Media In Motion tests my patience daily when he asks me if menu items obviously not relevant to “free range” or “fair trade” (like the bagels and salads) at Higher Grounds are indeed such. I have had genuine questions come from other customers as well on these same buzzwords. To clear up any confusion (though I don’t think Kenny is confused – just sarcastic), I’m taking a closer look at those terms this week. I’ll begin with “free range,” just for Kenny! Free range is defined by the USDA as “Producers being able to demonstrate that the animal has been allowed access to the outside” (www.usda.gov). Not very encouraging to me as a moral practice frankly, but it is better than nothing! The ideal is to find a farmer who can prove the proper production of his food or do some research on your favorite brands. You can find local farms at www.localharvest.org.

The reason a true free-ranging animal is so important, beyond the obvious moral motives, are health factors. Animals living in a cage or stall for life sustain wear and tear to their adrenaline, hormones, nerves and quality of life – thus reducing the quality of the food product. These strains on the animals transfer through the meat, eggs, by-products and offspring. This could spur unnatural irregularities in the body such as hyper-active hormones and increased stress levels, leading to higher risks of cancer and

other unwanted ailments. Now for “fair trade,” one of my favorite modern movements. According to www. greenerlivingguide.com, “fair trade includes sustainable, environmentally-sound agricultural practices and focuses specifically on fair labor practices and fair prices for farmer’s crops across national borders.” It works in the primary favor of producers in poorer areas, who could be exploited because of the scarcity of employment opportunities. This regulation ensures that workers get an equal exchange of money relative to the product’s worth. It demands no slave or child labor and safe working conditions. Look for the certification stamp on popular products such as cocoa, coffee, handicrafts, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton and wine. There is no way to be absolutely sure, even when an item is stamped “Certified Fair Trade,” (as with “Certified Free Range”) that every brand that advertises this way actually employs these practices. Again, the only way to be sure is to research the brands that you use and have a bit of collective consciousness when you shop.

Y SONS Michael, Nick and myself enjoy Exit Zero tremendously. Every Wednesday the boys look forward to trying to win a contest, and the oldest, Michael, reads it from cover to cover at least twice. Thank you for now having an electronic copy we can view. We are from Connecticut but have a tiny house in North Cape May that serves as our getaway until my husband and I retire here. My boys love “our beach” and “our jetty” – even though we get around to all the beaches and sites. I spend the entire summer here with the kids because I’m a teacher. Sadly, my husband has a 12-month job and only comes down some weekends. Now, I am sure you get notes like this all the time, but I have a little gem inside for you if you are ever in need of filling some space in Exit Zero. My son Michael is an avid fisherman, but he’s not the run-of-the-mill type. He has been fishing since the age of four, and he’s pretty darned good.

His dad is known as “The Fish Whisperer” in our extended family and has been known to catch a striper on “our beach” bare handed – seriously bare handed. He grew up as a fisherman in Vietnam and has apparently passed on his talents to my eleven-year-old son. Here’s the best part: my son doesn’t need a fishing rod either. He uses his bait net, and you name it, he’s caught it – striper, f lounder, hogchokers, stargazers, eels, sand shark and just today got an Atlantic Needlefish. The

cutest catch of the summer, has to have been a puffer fish. It fit in the palm of your hand. Everything gets released unless it is of eating size or if it serves as bait to catch something of eating size. If you ever have someone in need of a short piece on a young “old school” fisherman, they should come down to the main entrance to “our beach” around sunset (depends on the tide), and he’d be there casting his net endlessly. He makes tossing his bait net look easy and many spectators have asked and tried. It’s not easy. It takes practice (three summers of practice to be exact), but Michael provided last Sunday’s dinner: two f lounder and a striper that got cooked up Vietnamese style. Again, if you ever have someone interested, this is a bug in your ear. Many of the retired men in our neighborhood get the biggest kick out of watching him haul in more than the fishermen on shore. It’s a pleasure to watch. And finally, we enjoy Exit Zero thoroughly, keep up the great work. Sadly the summer is over for us...

Do you know these girls? You should! Slipcovered pretties!

The Answer Lady

T

Wise answers to perplexing questions

HE ANSWER Lady invites inquiries from gentle readers on all manners 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 My live-in girlfriend keeps telling me to get therapy. I’ve had a rough year, but things are turning around, and I’m sure I’ll snap out of this rut soon. How can I get her to quit bugging me about this? – Kinda Blue Dear Blue – The Answer Lady cannot stand it when other people try to tell her what to do. Unless, of course, it’s coming from someone I care about, or it’s about something important, like say… oh, therapy, for instance. In that case she would pay attention, as should you, gentle reader. Most people are not in the habit of running around recommending therapy to others (unless, of course, they are in the therapy business). Instead, it is usually because they are concerned, they feel there is a problem that needs to addressed, and they recognize that you are

in pain. People have a tendency to panic about the very concept of therapy, but really – what could be more ideal than bouncing your ideas, issues, and problems off a completely objective total stranger who has no preconceived notions and happens to be a trained professional? Look at it this way – it can’t hurt, right? If it’s not for you, it’s not for you, but at least try it before you write it off. Personally the Answer Lady thinks the world would be a happier place if more people were on the couch. PS: The Answer

FEATURE OF THE WEEK

Lady hopes your girlfriend is “suggesting therapy,” or “asking you to consider therapy,” and not “telling you to get it.” Dear Answer Lady I think my boyfriend might have a drinking problem. We’re young and we like to hit the local bars for happy hour around town. We always call Aart’s Taxi if we’ve both been drinking, but lately he’s getting totally blotto every time we go out. How do I handle this problem? – His Girl Dear Girl – The short answer here is: this is not your problem to handle. If he truly has a drinking problem (and it sounds as if he does, or is well on his way), the only person who can do anything about it is him. Your only decision is whether or not you wish to stick around while he figures this out. Express your concerns, but keep in mind that no amount of cajoling, nagging, or threatening from you will do the trick. Decide if you want to be there if and when he gets help, and keep Aart’s on speed-dial.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

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

«

MARMADUKE is a big boy with lots of energy. He’ll need extra care and training since he is so strong and exuberant. He enjoys playing with other dogs and chasing his ball so be prepared for some exercise. We feel that he will do best in a home without small children. If you have large breed experience and are knowledgeable and willing to dedicate the time to work with Marmaduke, stop in and meet him today. Adoption fee is $95.

«

BUTTERCUP is a pretty two-year-old pitbull mix who’s been here at the shelter for a while. When Buttercup first meets someone she can be a little shy and anxious but once she warms up she does take comfort from human contact.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

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

HEDDY definitely needs to be wooed. She came in as a stray, but responds with curiousity when you open her cage and scratch her ears. So if you have some treats and bit of patience, Heddy might be the perfect match for you. Please stop by and see Heddy, her pretty black and white face will win your heart! Adoption fee is $70.

«

SPARKY will talk to you all day. Come anywhere near his cage, and he runs right up to the front, meowing a mile a minute. We’re guessing he’s saying something like, “Hey! Pick me! I’m a great guy!” With his glossy gray and white fur, he deserves the attention. Stop by and see if Sparky could light up your life. Adoption fee is $35.

«

INDIA is like a night sky – all black, with golden eyes like stars. He likes a scratch on the head, but otherwise wants to wander on his own. India is a candidate for the Shelter’s “Barn Buddy” program, and could live in an outdoor setting where he has caretakers and shelter, and can come inside for a visit. Adoption fee is $35.

Cape Curiosity

A weekly historical column by Ben Miller, author of the best-selling “The First Resort”

T

HERE are two kinds of people in Cape May – those who remember Pennywise, and those who don’t. It may sound like a trite way to start my column, but it’s true, and for more than 55 years, Pennywise was a big deal around here. Forget who is a local, cottager, “shoebie,” or any other label out there, in the pages of Pennywise magazine, everyone was equal. Every issue featured the same elements and design, from the grid of pictures on the front page with a list of names inside to the witty, handwritten musings of editor, Joe Barker. Barker published Pennywise with his business manager, Louis Pron, and a small staff made up of Carola Collings and W. Brinton Smith, who occasionally filled in as temporary editor. Pennywise was printed weekly during the summer season and sporadically throughout the rest of the year, with a sister Pennywise edition printed monthly in New Hope, Pennsylvania, Barker’s hometown. Each new edition was delivered to local merchants

The entirety of “Pennywise” was done by hand – ads and all. Imagine all the effort it would take to produce “Exit Zero” by hand.

Cape Curiosity ? From Page 103 at the beginning of the week, and shortly thereafter people clamored to get their copy. On a personal note, I remember fondly that rush to pick up a copy and see if it included pictures of my family members or me. Their photographers would walk the beach, the mall, the promenade and even show up on historic tours. Having your picture in Pennywise was a badge of honor and somewhere around my house, I have a stack of them with pictures of my family. The magazine was founded in 1931 and run by the same small crew until the late 1980s. Fun and kitschy are the best words to describe the essence of Pennywise, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it was some small-time periodical. Amidst Barker’s biting wit and the themed editions came regular contributions from fans, including the following New Year’s resolutions that were published in January of 1937: “Dave McGuckin – Anything that’s a good time I’ll do to the Nth degree. Ned Street – No more gin from teacups. Betty Lewis – To love a new one every week and give up spinach. Jean Burpee – Not to break anymore dates or stand anyone up. Marie Washington - To love only one. Nina Hawley

Each edition of “Pennywise” featured a distinctive photo grid on the cover with a corresponding list of names inside.

– Not to touch the staff.” Here’s another favorite quote from a 1983 Pennywise that mentions Cape May’s renaissance – it really captures the mood of the town as the locals fought with urban renewal: “Remember when all of Cape May was painted white with green trim and awnings, and how shocked everyone was when Christine McCloskey Croft Amore

The 64 Things You Should Do In Cool Cape May

If it’s not in this list it probably ain’t worth doing. So get reading, and then get moving! FAMILY-FRIENDLY Cape May has a great variety of activities that you can enjoy with the entire family. Here is a great list of ideas to get you started. 1. Morey’s Piers The Wildwood Boardwalk is now home to the biggest attraction the Jersey Shore has seen in years. The Ghost Ship, unveiled Memorial Day Weekend, is a one-of-a-kind haunted attraction featuring animatronics, a scary soundtrack and live actors. Wind your way through the maze-like course of a wrecked ship that appears it has crashed right into Morey’s Piers. 2. Cape May-Lewes Ferry Take a trip over to Lewes, Delaware, a small, quaint seaside town, then make sure you check out bustling Rehoboth Beach, the Fenwick Island Lighthouse or Cape Henlopen State Park. You can also take advantage of the tax-free shopping at the outlets. Or just enjoy the quiet and vastness of the bay on the deck of the ferry as you watch for dolphins and whales. For more information or to book a reservation, call 800-64-FERRY or visit capemaylewesferry.com. 3. Historic Cold Spring Village Ever wonder what it was like to live in Cape May 200 years ago? The answer can be found at this open-air living history museum, a seven-minute drive from town. Through interactive, and hands-on activities,

visitors can make a connection with the past by experiencing it. The many authentically-restored homes amid idyllic shaded areas make it hard not to feel like Abe Lincoln’s in office… and it’s even easier when the Civil War re-enactment rolls into town. Cold Spring is a can’t-miss for history buffs. Give them a call at (609) 898-2300 or visit their website at www.hcsv.org. 4. Whale and Dolphin Watching Dolphins are fairly common in the waters off Cape May, but it’s still a joy to see them. Cape May Whale & Dolphin Watch and Research Center offers you the best chance to see them up close. And, you might even see a whale. Tours take off at Wilson Avenue. You can see it on your left as you cross the small bridge before the Lobster House on your way out of town. For directions or more information, call (609) 898-0055 or visit them on the web at www.capemaywhalewatch.com. 5. Cape May Family Treasure Hunt Discover the fun of exploring Cape May and uncovering its architectural elements from a kid’s perspective. Packet includes a clue sheet and map that will take you on a self-guided discovery tour. Packets for the entire family are available for $5. For more information, call (609) 884-5404 or visit www.capemaymac.org. 6. Antiquing For a different kind of treasure hunt, check out the amazing variety of antique shops that are available in Cape May – just don’t get disheartened when you see

your favorite childhood toy selling for $100. Here are some treasure troves (all 609 area code): Antiques Emporia, 405 West Perry Street (898-3332), Bridgetowne Antiques, Broadway and Mechanic (884-8107), Out of The Past Antiques, 394 Myrtle Avenue, corner of Perry (884-3357), Cape May Antique Center, 1228 Route 109 (898-4449). 7. Cape May Lighthouse, Oil House, Museum Shop The structure, built in 1859, has 199 steps leading to the watch gallery with a panoramic view of the Jersey Cape, Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Admission to the Visitors’ Orientation Center and the ground floor of the Lighthouse is free. Tower admission is $7 for adults and $3 for children. For more information, call (609) 884-5404 or visit www.capemaymac.org. 8. Bay Springs Alpaca Farm This one’s hard to believe, but Cape May has an Alpaca Farm. Near the end of beautiful New England Road, Warren and Barbara Nuessle live what they call the “alpaca lifestyle” – quiet and simple. Visit them between 10am and 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays and see how alpaca fiber is spun into yarn, or shop at their store which carries many alpaca related items (forget wool; go with an alpaca sweater this winter!) And don’t forget to greet the grazing alpacas – they make it all possible. Call (609) 884-0563 or visit www.bayspringsalpacas.comfor more information.

Activity Of The Week

N

A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Arcade Adventures.

EW Jersey’s shore towns are like a necklace of sparkling jewels, with fans of each convinced that their jewel shines brightest. The towns share good-natured competition, so we welcomed this week’s challenge – making sure a girl named Avalon enjoyed the heck out of her visit to Cape May. Avalon, New Jersey, is a lovely town that has been a fashionable resort since the 1890s. But Avalon, the town, is a bit quiet for Avalon, the teen, so we brought her to Cape May, where the weather was gorgeous, a guitarist played on the promenade, and teenagers crowded the arcade. Clearly, Lady Luck was with us. Arcades in the Victorian era housed shops. Today, they house the descendants of the carnival midway – redemption games and pinball. Cape May has two arcades on Beach Avenue – one near Howard, and one near Jackson. Change a $20 bill into quarters and choose your challenge. Traditionalists play Skee Ball – the summer version of bowling. For

50 cents, you get nine chances to roll a wooden ball into a designated hole and rack up points. Variations on Whac-AMole allow you to beat up on crocodiles or sharks. Simulators allow you to drive a race car or battle aliens. Games of chance teach lessons about odds better than a trip to the casino. Pinball adds the bells and whistles. Avalon went for the modified basketball games. Success is measured in the length

of the strip of tickets the machine spits out. Redeeming those tickets for prizes is the highlight of the night. All the treasures of childhood are on display – Chinese finger traps, vampire teeth, yo-yos, bouncy balls, boomerangs, and that perennial favorite, the whoopee cushion. Some people save their tickets over the course of the summer for a bigger prize, like a piggy bank or a lava lamp. There are even more valuable treasures, like a tabletop hockey game, but we’ve never met anyone with the patience to save up for one of those. Because you’re playing with quarters instead of tokens, it’s easy to feed your parking meter if you can’t tear yourself away. Ice cream can be bought with quarters, too – ten quarters gets you a cone. Kiddie rides are available in front of the arcades, so you can watch the toddlers as you eat your ice cream. Old-fashioned photo booths let you create silly souvenirs of the night. Step right up! Visit the arcade! Next week: Kayaking with the Kids

YNN and Ron Cohen are back at Cape May Stage performing in Samuel Beckett’s only comedy, called Happy Days. Many of you will remember Lynn and Ron from Social Security last season. She played the mother from hell until she was transformed by the love of a French artist. Lynn is known from HBO’s Sex and the City and Steven Spielberg’s Munich. Samuel Beckett won the Nobel Prize for Literature and Cape May Stage aspires to raise the programming bar by bringing challenging material to our community. Happy Days was a radical play when it premiered 50 years ago. Today, it resonates in a new way. It is the story of a couple who have spent their lives together and it deals with the fear of losing a partner and keeping cheerful in the midst of life’s challenges. In the hands of a master artist like Lynn Cohen and directed by Cape May Stage’s Artistic Director, Roy Steinberg, it is hysterically funny. There is a preview tonight (August 25) and opening night is tomorrow with a gala party at the Mad Batter after the performance. The whole audience is invited! PNC Arts Alive wants to insure that everybody in Cape May can see this extraordinary work and so they are sponsoring a “Pay-What-You-Can” night on September 2. If your budget allows you to party with the artists on August 26, come tomorrow night. For those on a tighter budget there is a half price senior night and the special “Pay-What-YouCan” in September. As the summer draws to a close we end the Broadway Series on Monday with Jill

Lynn Cohen recently seen as Magda in “Sex and the City 2”, takes on the role of Winnie in the Stage’s latest offering, “Happy Days”, now playing Wed-Sun at 8pm. Craig Blankenhorn Below: NYC performers Kevin Scott Collins and Johanna Weller Fahy bring their comic cabaret “Book of Crazy: The DSM IV in Song” to Cape May over Labor Day weekend. Eikenberry and Michael Tucker performing Love Letters. The Second Stage wants to keep you laughing, so on Tuesday, August 31 Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad is barging into town with an act that has been celebrated all over the United States. Labor Day brings us a comic cabaret called Book of Crazy: The DSM IV in Song about two people who are unhappy and searching for a framework with which to understand their own malaise. The show follows Kevin and Johanna, two selfidentified hypochondriacs obsessed with WebMD. com as they explore potential diagnoses to explain their overall discontent with their lives. To further delve into their self-diagnoses, the two begin to explore the psyche, using the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Illness, Fourth Edition”. Throughout the course of the show, they sing to each other and the audience about their problems and the audience guesses which diagnosis might fit

The Cape May Crossword

None of that generic nonsense you see in other papers... a puzzle just for this town! By Dan Mathers. SO YOU love crosswords and you love Cape May? Great. Sit down, get a cup (or glass) of your favorite beverage, relax and enjoy this puzzle. The answers to the crossword all deal with the theme of this week’s issue, which is clowns. The solution can be found on the front page of our website, www.exitzero.us. ACROSS 3. This clown type, sharing a name with philosopher Comte and sculpture Rodin, is the least intelligent of clowns. 7. This 1965 American movie tells the story of a boy living with his eccentric Uncle Murray who is forced to conform to societal standards to keep custody. 10. He took on many clown characters – like Puff-a-Lump and Paddy McPugg – and signed off every show with “Good night and God bless.” 11. This family comedy act, featuring brothers Chico, Harpo, Groucho, enjoyed success due to the vaudeville characters. 14. This is defined as an abnormal or highly exaggerated fear of clowns. 15. This sport, arising from cowboy culture, employs clowns to help keep bovine retribution to a minimum. 17. The movie was originally a Stephen King novel and features a shapeshifter taking on clown form to entice young victims. 18. Clowns can trademark their face with the Clown and Character Registry, where the

The Joe Camel of childhood obesity – 6 Down.

face will be painted on this animal’s egg. 19. “And while the king was looking down, the jester stole his thorny crown,” say the lyrics of this famous Don McLean song. 20. This type of clown is at the low end of clown hierarchy and is down on his luck, but stays positive and finds work in his travels. 22. This character entertained European monarchs and wore a distinctive, floppy three-point hat with a bell at each tip. 23. This man portrayed The Tramp, a character that was actually a type of clown. DOWN 1. The short features filmed by this triumvirate showcased their extremely physical brand of slapstick comedy. 2. This TV clown was different depending on the city but always had his red hair pointed at the sides. 4. This popular Fox animated series featuring yellow people has a corrupt clown character named Krusty. 5. “Send in the Clowns” is an often-covered

song from this 1973 Stephen Sondheim musical. 6. Across the world, only Santa Claus has a more-widely recognized face than this clown. 8. Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey started this school after seeing a downturn in qualified candidates for their circus. 9. He created one of the great comic personas of the 20th century, a sympathetic, hard-drinking egotist who despised dogs, children and women. 12. This circus, originally started in Quebec, has given a twist to the classic perception of the clown... and the circus in general. 13. This was the highest title bestowed upon their kind by Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey, and was only given four times. 16. Having seen his movies – Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber – it’s clear this actor is a clown. 21. A would-be clown can copy everything from another clown except for this feature, which is unique for every clown.

Destiny, Jade, Adam and Donna Devlin

Dear Friend, In the fall of 2001 I was told that I may never walk again. I am so grateful for the wonderful doctors and technology that have given me my life back. Others are not as fortunate. After my injury I researched different charities dedicated to spinal cord awareness. As an avid surfer, I was particularly interested in the Life Rolls On Foundation (www.liferollson.org). Life Rolls On (LRO) is a non-profit 501(c)3 Foundation that exists to be a grassroots resource and an advocate on behalf of young people who have sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI). Their tagline, “Instilling in people that life with SCI does indeed roll on.”

Bird Droppings

Y

The weekly report from the world’s birdwatching capital... by Seymore Thanu

OU say you want to see a hawk? Okay. They are not mythical creatures. You don’t need a pure heart or the strength of 10. You won’t have to sell your soul, take out a mortgage, go to the oracle, walk barefoot over hot coals, fill out a form, say “I do,” or eat live worms on camera. All you have to do is go over to the Cape May Point State Park. Stand on the Hawk Watch Platform. Look up. Okay, maybe it’s not quite that easy. There are certain prerequisites. Dos and don’ts that will make finding a real live bird of prey almost as easy as drawing breath. For starters, you should know what a hawk looks like. This is important because there are lots of birds in Cape May and only a fraction of them are hawks. Hawks come in a variety of sizes; from American Kestrel (a robin-sized falcon) to Bald Eagle (big). They are mostly pale below, mostly brown above. Usually, especially in f latlands like Cape May, you see the below parts. They like to soar in circles. They are often harassed by smaller birds.

Also, there are other birds that are often confused for hawks when in f light. Remember that gulls have pointy wings that droop; herons and egrets f lap a lot. If you want to know what a hawk looks like, stop by the Cape May Bird Observatory and look in a book that has pictures of hawks in f light. There are dozens. Consider binoculars. Big hawks are just

that – big. Close they may not be, and when they are f lying above you, the higher they are, the smaller they seem. Binoculars will vault the distance and confer supernatural intimacy with a bird of prey. Now here’s the tricky part. You have to pick a good time and good condition for hawk watching. Hawks are not everywhere all the time, unless you happen to happily be in Cape May from mid-August to midNovember, when hawks are common. In fact, Cape May is one of the best places in North America to see migrating hawks. It is what is called a “leading line.” Southbound hawks get caught in the land funnel and directed to its terminus. That terminus is Cape May Point, which is the end of the terrestrial line for a group of birds that mostly likes to migrate over land. Also, you should plan to conduct your quest beginning about 9-9:30am, just after your coffee has perked, because this is also when the morning’s first thermals start perking. Thermals, rising bubbles of air, are

what hawks use to ride aloft. If you start watching before thermals are strong and widespread, you will be able to see hawks when they are relatively low. By 10:30am, most hawks are waaay up there. Specks in the sky. Hard to find. Hard to identify. Not exactly satisfying. There is another rush hour in the afternoon. Around 3:305pm, thermal production has diminished. Hawks are lower and many will be hunting. Your chances are also much better if you pick a day after a cold front has passed. The northto-northwest winds ferry birds down the peninsula and over Cape May Point. There are some more tricks. Use your binoculars to scan. Pan them across the horizon with the treetops in the lower part of the glass. Work the instrument slowly until you map a 180 degree section of sky; from the sky over one end of the platform to the next. Now raise the instrument and work your way back again, but this time with your binoculars raised just above the swath of sky you just studied. Another trick. Look at the bottoms of clouds. Not only do hawks stand out against the white base, they are drawn to clouds. Puffy white clouds are the terminal stage of a thermal. You can’t see thermals. But you can see the cloud they spawn

as the water vapor in the air reaches a point where it condenses and forms a cloud. If you go to the Hawk Watch Platform after September 1, there will be people there to point hawks out to visitors. If you’re lucky, they might even let you look through their binoculars. The Cape May Bird Observatory (CMBO), is THE place for anything to do with nature. Located at 701 East Lake Drive overlooking lovely Lake Lily in Cape May Point, the center is open 9:30-4:30pm daily. Ask any of our staff or volunteers - they are always glad to help with anything you need. Check out the newest books (including Bayshore Summer by whats-his-name) and some great new merchandise - including our exclusive CMBO logo jewelry, clothing, totes, and more. Check our sightings log to find what’s being seen, pick up a bargain from the vintage books section, look at some Charley Harper merchandise, or just browse. If you aren’t fortunate enough to be in the area, visit us online w w w.BirdCapeMay.org – where birding Cape May is only a click away. Seymore Thanu is none other than New Jersey’s own Pete Dunne, Director of the Cape May Bird Observatory and Chief Communications Officer for New Jersey Audubon. He has written for virtually every birding publication and for The New York Times.

The Movie Column

Tom Sims, Executive Director of the Cape May Film Society, reviews “Dinner for Schmucks”

W

HAT does it take to be funny? The right situation, precise comedic timing, f lawless acting? Sure, but also something more. How about the mob mentality? Nothing makes you laugh more at a movie than a hundred people joining you. In Dinner for Schmucks, starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, having an audience laughing with you definitely helps. Dinner for Schmucks is a remake of a reportedly better-executed French film called The Dinner Game. Tim (played by Rudd) is an upwardly-mobile executive invited to a special dinner where participants bring… well, they bring an idiot. The goal is to win the prize for bringing the biggest idiot. Essentially, this is what will catapult Tim to the “seventh f loor” an envious spot to all his sixth-f loor colleagues. Tim’s girlfriend, Julie (beautifully played by Stephanie Szostak) does not like the idea, and Tim assures her he’s not going to participate. But he does. Especially since he just happens to (literally) run into Barry

A movie best viewed with a laugh track.

(played by Carell), a taxidermist who creates 3D vignettes using dead mice. Clearly it does not take a tightly-crafted storyline or strong character development to be funny, as both are woefully lacking. The story unfolds clumsily, and I found myself rolling my eyes at the blatant disregard for quality storytelling. About

two thirds into the film, when it became apparent they were actually going to have a dinner scene I rolled my eyes again and whined, “They’re really going to make me sit through a dinner scene?” Carell and Rudd do what they always do in this film – Carell the idiot and Rudd the straight man, but it’s the great supporting cast that makes the movie watchable. Zach Galifianakis plays Therman, Carell’s boss at the IRS who uses mind-control techniques. Jermaine Clement plays Kieran, an artist managed by Rudd’s girlfriend; his extreme art and lifestyle get big laughs. Just when the film shows the slightest indication that it will rise above its own silliness to become, oh, I don’t know, poignant, it reverts back to garnering laughter at any expense. In a theater with an audience that laughs with you, it actually is pretty funny. Renters beware: if you wait for the DVD and watch this alone, don’t expect to get the joke. Maybe we’ll screen the French version of this film here in town. Let us know what you think by emailing capemayfilm@hotmail.com.

Real Estate Rewind

T

Report from the wonderful world of Cape May property... by Chris Bezaire

HIS edition features a grand total of 12 transactions from July 28 through August 18. Here are some of the highlights. Starting out with yet another large transaction, 1401 New Jersey Avenue was listed and sold by Todd DeSatnick of DeSatnick Realty for $1,900,000. Must be the hair! Also sold was 817 Columbia Avenue, listed by Chris Clemans of, hey, how about that, Chris Clemans Sotheby’s International and sold by Steve Cluff of Coldwell Banker Sol Needles Real Estate for $960,000. For our friends in the Point, 207 Whilden Avenue was listed and sold by Starr Taylor of Wilsey Realty for $826,500. And for our neighbors in West Cape May, 275 West Fifth Avenue was listed and sold by Carmen Manzoni for $500,000. Also in West Cape May, 438 Third Avenue was listed and sold by James McBride of Coldwell Banker Sol Needles for $417,000. Finally, for those of you who think buying here is a dream, there was 169 Stimpson Lane, which was listed by Norman Dennis Kelly and sold by David Schick, both of Schick Real

Estate for $41,000. The catch: this was a mobile home in an age-restricted community... a great way to get your little piece of Cape May without paying a fortune. This week we focus on the upcoming fall and winter markets. For those of you looking to buy, this is a good time to make sure you have an agent who is watching the market for you. After Labor Day many properties will go on the market. Why? There are several reasons. First, owners who were thinking about selling before now have received all of the rental income for the 2010 season and are looking to move on or move up. Several people wait until fall to sell because they realize that the summer is an extremely difficult time for potential buyers to view their property with all of the rental check-ins and check-outs. Also, people who use their homes for themselves may now feel the need to make a change before next summer. For all these reasons, you’ll want to make sure that your agent keeps you updated so you don’t miss that property you were looking for. Finally, as promised, here are the results of my poll from last time. Just to refresh you

memory, the question was “Has the Cape May real estate market bottomed out, does it still has a little more to go, or there is still another big bubble coming?” 38% of you think it has bottomed out, 50% of you think it has a little more to go, and 12% think there is another bubble coming. On the heels of those results, I present you with this week’s question: How did you find your Cape May area real estate agent? 1. My agent is a friend or someone I know. 2. My agent was referred to me by a friend. 3. I met my agent after calling on a property sign or advertisement. 4. I found my agent on the internet. I am interested to hear the answers, and I’m pretty sure other agents reading this are pretty curious as well. As always, I welcome all questions and comments and you can contact me for a full list of transactions for this issue. Until next time...
