The Police Blotter

TEQUESTA, FL: A resident of the 200 block of West Moccasin Trail called for help at 10:37am. She said a boy had been in a neighborhood tree for four days and she wasn’t sure whether he ever came down. An officer discovered that it was just part of a tree that grew into a shape resembling a sitting boy. – Palm Beach Post

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 as being extremely xenophobic. 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, to make it easy to follow. How do you celebrate Christmas in your country? Kak prazdnuut Rozhdestvo v vashei strane? Here is how your Russian-speaking friend is likely to respond: V Belarusi my otmechaem dva Rozhdestva, katolicheskoe I pravoslavnoe. Which translates to: We celebrate Christmas twice in Belarus – once for the Catholics and once for the Orthodox. – Tanya Zotava

Weird Word Of The Week

Ergophobia Maybe that person you have always thought was extremely lazy just has a severe case of ergophobia – a fear of work!

Cape May County Historical Museum

A Story From The Past

THIS shot of the Cape May boardwalk is from the mid-1950s, showing an idyllic scene with lifeguards walking the planks, pristine wooden benches lined up as far as the eye can see and the double-shot of Frank’s Playland and Hunt’s Pier. Along Beach Avenue were vintage hotels like the old Lafayette and the Weightman Cottages, then known as the Ocean View Hotel. The name was borrowed from the the building that now houses Cabanas and Martini Beach. – Ben Miller

Facebook Mystery Contest

KNOW your way around Cape May? Think of yourself as the observant type? Feast your eyes on the photograph above, prepared by our resident cryptographer Dan Mathers. If you think you know what restaurant sports this front door, then you have a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to spend at a local business. Go to the Exit Zero Facebook page before Monday for a full-size, full-color photo and instructions on how to enter – follow the instructions carefully. And, don’t worry if you have never used Facebook before – it’s easy! Just ask your six-year-old nephew. To enter, look for the mystery photo at www.facebook.com/ exitzeropublishing. Good luck!

Random Fact Of The Week

UNDER the leadership of Oliver Cromwell, the English Parliament outlawed celebrating Christmas in 1647. Cromwell, a Puritan, considered feasting and revelry on what was supposed to be a holy day to be immoral. The ban lasted until Cromwell lost power in 1660.

Fortune Cookie Of The Week J People are naturally attracted to you. 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 crunchy, spicy tuna roll and a small salad. Please note: Any typos are not ours, but those of the fortune cookie manufacturers. We print them as we find them.

The Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts offers a packed calender of Christmas events

T’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the nation’s first seaside resort. Thanks to the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC) and Cape May’s support of cultural and heritage tourism, our town has become a top Christmastime destination. The city is transformed into an old-fashioned winter wonderland for the holidays and celebrates the season with seven weeks of special events. Victorian homes, hotels, churches and inns are decorated for the season with twinkling lights, boughs of holly and a wreath at every door. The festivities continue all the way through January 2. Take a trolley ride to see the city’s twinkling lights, tour the Victorian gems decked out for the season, indulge with food and wine events, and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year! There is holiday entertainment for every member of the family. Unless otherwise noted, all events listed below are sponsored by the MidAtlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities.

M

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

Y MOTHER went to high school with the cofounder of Apple computers. He asked her out, and she turned him down because he was a geek with bad acne. Then he showed up to the 20–year reunion with a private jet and the homecoming queen. “You never know who somebody might turn out to be,” my mom reminds me. I think about this often when I’m working. Maybe the guy on table four is the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Maybe the woman on table two will discover a cure for cancer. Perhaps the man at the bar is wearing women’s underpants. You just never know. But in the restaurant, who you are is not as important as where you’re sitting. To ensure they get the right food, patrons are referred to by seat number. “Seat one gets the tuna!” the expeditor yells. When things get really busy, though, there’s no time for seat numbers. Orders become something more like: “Fish for the fat guy!” or “Soup for the woman dressed like a hooker!”

I’m often curious about the personal lives of these patrons. I used to play a game with a fellow waiter in which we’d guess the professions of the people we served. Then we’d try coaxing the info out of our guests. Over the course of one conversation, I learned I was serving the parents of a friend I’d made in Thailand three years prior. If anything will make a girl believe in six degrees of separation, it’s waitressing. The only people I don’t care to know are the ones pretentious enough to assume I already do. Even if a guest is very important and his server knows very well who he is, it’s probably best not to feed an already inf lated ego. A friend of mine once served a

famous Philadelphia Eagle. “What’s your name?” the football player asked, rubbing my friend’s backside. “Melanie,” she said. “What’s yours?” Other times, in a moment of irrational anger over a botched order, a guest will ask his server: “Don’t you know who I am?” “Why?” I feel like saying, “Did you forget?” Unfortunately, this happens quite a bit where I work. People who have to wait for a table or receive an undercooked steak want to know if I’m aware of their VIP status. In fact, it happened just yesterday. “I know who you are,” I wanted to say, “You’re the guy who f lips out over a slab of beef.” In the past, I’ve assumed that any guest who would ask me such a thing must be an utterly obnoxious person, but perhaps this is presumptuous. After all, if waiting tables has taught me anything, it’s that I never can be sure of who I’m dealing with. And the same goes for my angry guest. Don’t you know who I am, dear sir? When dinner is over, I’m the girl who’s writing about you.

The Old Fogey

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

I

MAY have to change Christmas a little this time around, I’m afraid. Every year, more of you cease to use your fine chimneys and hearths and seal them up, or fill them with dried f lowers and other tat that makes a descent somewhat tricky for an old chap like myself. And after a few memorable attempts, I will not be trying to navigate any more central heating vents. In the last one, in one of those fancy modern homes that jostle for room on the way to the Point, I was stuck fast and feared my remains would be found in the spring when squirrels had eaten the f lesh from my bones, and had I not had a hand grenade in the pocket of my fine ermine-lined jacket, I would have surely perished. As it was, I rolled the grenade (I usually carry one, as they can remedy all sorts of problems, from a nest of North Korean machine-gunners to a roving pack of Wildwooders, to a dispute over a parking space on Beach) down the vent and the explosion propelled me out of the side of the building and into the kiddy pool.

Needless to say, that house got no presents from Santa, other than a scorched lounge. Of course, my role as Santa goes back to the very origins of the story – you might assume that, being a ludicrously rich and generous man, I decided to become a local incarnation of Mr Claus. But the truth, as always, is more intriguing: back in my day, Santa Claus was a bit of a ne’er-dowell whose real name was Sammy Hawse. Sammy liked to gamble, and after a win at Atlantic City he would return to Cape May

Extensive collection of cross stitch & needlework designs Custom Framing 315 Ocean Street, Unit 9 Washington Commons Cape May, NJ 08204 1-866-563-5399 • 609-898-9606 stitchbystitchcapemay.com

and stumble around handing out random gifts and cash. In time, his slurred introductions, his trademark lucky red gambling jacket and his drunken largesse became the basis for a nice little legend of a jolly, redfaced demigod called “Santa” who slipped down chimneys (rather than his real-life habit of slipping off bar stools, senseless). Sadly, Sammy’s gambling ended badly and he was shot through the heart by an enraged card shark after he made the mistake of playing no fewer than three aces of hearts in the same hand. Well then, what could I do except take up the mantle and become Santa himself? I settled on a date, the day before my birthday, and had one of my finest carriages outfitted specially. Then I had a snug and startling red outfit stitched up. Young Albert was dressed similarly, and from that came, I think, the notion of Santa’s elves, though Young Albert is mightily offended at such a comparison. So, dear friends, this year, I will be knocking directly on the front door. Be warned: I prefer fine malt and shortbread.

Confessions Of A Cape May Lover

I

An enthusiast’s view of America’s Original Seaside Resort... by Meghan Kunz

F YOU’RE not careful, it’s quite easy to overlook something important during the holiday rush. Between the decorations, party–planning, recipe–swapping, present–buying, list–making, family gatherings… well, it’s rather exhausting. At the end of each day, you may find yourself sighing with relief – another obstacle course overcome. Another day has passed, the countdown continues. You collapse in a heap, then start to mentally prepare for the next 24 hours. It’s easy to forget, so no judgment is passed here. But is there any place on your to–do list for the true spirit of the holidays? I’m not just talking about the token gift to your mailman or hair dresser. What are you giving back? I know some people may roll their eyes and think, “I give back all the time. I just bought raff le tickets for that fundraiser. And didn’t I donate that sweater I hate to charity?” Okay, that’s a step in the right direction. But amid the holiday bustle there should be time to remember that not everyone is as lucky as you are. Even if you have it bad, someone is always

in a worse situation. What can you do? Small steps can have significant effects. The Coalition Against Rape and Abuse in Cape May Court House is currently collecting new, unwrapped gifts for newborns through teenage children. If you’re interested in dropping off a gift, call (609) 5226489. Wilsey Realty on Lafayette Street is running its second annual Holiday Diaper Drive now through January 3. Donations can be dropped off Mondays–Saturdays 9am–5pm and Sundays 10am–2pm.

Naughty or nice – does it really make a difference?

Flying Fish Studio in West Cape May is selling one-of-a-kind “Have a Heart for Hunger” Christmas ornaments designed by local artist Matt Long, supporting the Community Food Bank of New Jersey – Southern Branch. Consider volunteering your time or services at a local homeless shelter, such as Family Promise in Cape May Court House. Donating a used car could help someone secure employment this year. Offer to drive someone to a doctor’s appointment or volunteer your editing skills to enhance a résumé. For animal lovers, you can make a donation to Animal Outreach of Cape May County. A $50 donation will help spay/ neuter an animal or provide food for the shelter for a week. Visit www.animaloutreachofcmc.org for more information. Or give a gift to some furry friends at the Cape May County Animal Shelter in Cape May Court House. Some items that are needed include: paper towels, cotton balls, Kongs, Nylabones, Wiff le balls, towels, sheets, blankets, small rugs and quality pet food. Every bit helps.

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 I have a lot of family who live far away. For this reason, I usually send birthday and Christmas gifts in the mail – I write a check or send a gift card. If I haven’t heard from the recipient after a couple of days, I usually call to make sure the gift has been received. Recently I called my niece to follow up on a gift, and she was rather rude, saying that she had just received it the previous day, and then made up some excuse about working late and not yet having had the chance to call me. She implied that I was the one being rude! – Have You Ever? Dear Ever Well, yes, the Answer Lady has. You sound very thoughtful and very, uh, thorough in your gift-giving, dear, but to call these recipients of your good will and hound them, mere hours after they have

opened their mail, borders on harassment. By the way, the Answer Lady is NOT excusing people who do not thank others for gifts. Depending upon the occasion, a card is in order, at the very least a phone call, email, or even a text. To not acknowledge a gift is a crime against civility. Yes, if you have written a check and it goes uncashed for weeks at a time, of course a phone call is in order. And yes, your friends and family may be a bunch of ill-mannered, thoughtless boors, but that does not give you license

to be the gift police. Give people a realistic chance to thank you, and if they don’t do so, decide whether you are giving gifts to get something in return, or giving them because you want to. Dear Answer Lady Okay – going to my new girl’s folks’ house in Pennsylvania for Christmas dinner. My girlfriend is whipping up an appetizer that her mom requested, but I don’t want to walk in empty-handed. On the other hand, I’ve been laid off for a month, so funds are kind of limited. I need a quick suggestion. – Dinner Guest Dear Guest The Answer Lady feels like she says these two things all the time, but here she goes again: 1. Shop local, and 2. Any hostess loves f lowers. Pop into your nearest posy shop and pick up some festive f lowers. Or, since it is dinner, how about wine? Check out Hawk Haven Vineyards’ current sale – two bottles of Reisling for $25 – can’t beat it. Local and frugal – they’ll love you. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Answer Lady’s family to yours.

Activity Of The Week

G

A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Spread Holiday Cheer

IVING gifts and helping the poor are holiday traditions, but few people realize just how long these traditions have been around. Roman pagans exchanged gifts as they celebrated the feast of Saturnalia at the beginning of winter. Ancient societies supported widows and orphans, and in the Middle Ages distributing alms to the needy was a recognized duty of the wealthy. By the Victorian era, when many modern Christmas traditions began, it was customary to give gifts to the poor on Boxing Day – the day after Christmas. Historians disagree on the origins of the term “Boxing Day.” Lords traditionally distributed supplies for the new year on the day after Christmas, and often included special treats in the supply boxes. Churches also broke open the Christmas alms boxes on Boxing Day. Charles Dickens advised that in the “spirit of sharing,” postmen, errand boys, snow clearers and servants should receive “a box of contributions from those whom they serve.” While Boxing Day has evolved into a day for sports like football and marathon

shopping, it retains its charitable spirit. Americans don’t celebrate Boxing Day, but we do mark tax day, and therefore, yearend charitable giving is a tradition here as well. Locally, there are many opportunities to give. Begin close to home with a gift card to CVS or a grocery store for someone you know is struggling. Support the efforts at your place of worship with the gift of time. Participate in a charity race for Life Rolls On. Ticket sales only cover about half the

cost of a production at Cape May Stage – consider their annual giving campaign. Support Cape May’s Victorian preservation efforts with a donation to MAC’s Legacy Fund. Become a member of NJ Audubon and support the Nature Center. Or visit the Nature Center’s website and check out their wish list to see how you can support this vital center for environmental education as it grows to meet the increasing demands of our community. Sometimes you can give a gift that doubles as a donation – support Cape May County’s food banks with “Have a Heart for Hunger” ornaments, available at Flying Fish for $15. And if your pet charity is pets, consider Animal Outreach. Still having trouble deciding where to give? Ask three of your Cape May friends who they support and you are sure to find a worthy recipient. Sadly, there is no shortage of need. As American playwright Thornton Wilder said, ”Money is like manure; it’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around encouraging young things to grow.” Don’t be full of manure – spread it around a little.

The Dating Column

Stella Dixon’s take on romance at the shore – where the odds are good, but the goods are odd.

M

Y FRIENDS say that when living in a town as small as Cape May, a girl should always expect to run into her ex. This way, when she sees him for the first time since being dumped, she’s sporting a fabulous new hairdo and a this-will-make-him-sorry outfit. It helps if she’s sporting a new man on her arm as well. It was shortly after Thanksgiving when I ran into my own ex. After four slices of leftover pumpkin pie, the only one feeling sorry was me. Instead of a sexy outfit, I wore my best I’m-so-bloated threads, and hit the Brown Room not with a piece of arm candy, but with Ted, a delinquent family friend. Ted was visiting for the holiday and since I hadn’t seen him in years, I wanted to spend some time with him. I thought we’d get to know each other over a beer, but he wanted to share his recent sexual adventures instead. “So I get this chick home,” he said, “and she’s growling at me on all fours, you know? So I figured, if she’s going to be a tiger, I’m going to be a –”

“Why,” I interrupted, “would I want to hear this?” I shuffled us away from the bar where my boss was enjoying a cocktail. I pointed the man out to Ted, hoping this would prompt him to behave. “Which one is he?” Ted asked, “That chump over there?” Then Ted swiped a mozzarella stick off of a plate of appetizers that had been set up for a private party. I felt like hiding under the covers with yet another slice of pumpkin pie. But before I could tell

Ted to knock it off, he started to cry. Out of nowhere, he’d launched into a heart-toheart about the importance of friendship. I was so busy trying to quell Ted’s beer tears out of my boss’ earshot that it took a while to notice my ex and his new girlfriend standing just a foot away. My ex looked from me to the drunken, weepy man spilling marinara sauce beside me, and laughed. When I pictured running into my ex, I pictured graciously sharing the kind of small talk that always seems inappropriate once you’ve seen each another naked. Or, at the very least, I thought we’d civilly ignore one another. Either way, I’d hoped to appear classy and impossibly together. Getting laughed at while stumbling through an awkward social situation in a pair of elasticwaist jeans is not something I’d envisioned. So running into my ex did not go as I’d hoped. Then again, neither did our relationship. This less-than-ideal encounter was the appropriate footnote to a less-than-ideal romance. Now that it’s over, I can move on. But not before crawling under the covers with that last slice of pumpkin pie.

The Movie Column

F

Tom Sims, Executive Director of the Cape May Film Festival, reviews “Fair Game”

AIR GAME is a historical narrative set in the not-sodistant past. In 2003, the White House leaked the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame in an attempt to discredit her husband Joe Wilson after he wrote a scathing New York Times piece against President Bush. Here, Plame is played by Oscar-nominated Naomi Watts and Wilson by two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn. Can you tell the buzz is starting already for Oscar time? For two free passes to the 2011 Film Festival (October 21-23), be the first to send an email to capemayfilm@hotmail.com naming one of the films for which Sean Penn won those Oscars. Long story short (or perhaps better stated, “Story that was too long shortened”) this film was watchable (I know, not a word) and Sean Penn was excellent as always. But you don’t have to sit on any side of the aisle to get the feeling you’re seeing one side of the story. And it’s not even anything egregious in the telling of the story. You get into the characters and plot deeply enough, but some scenes are clearly politically charged and

Watts and Penn make “Fair Game” watchable, but not exactly memorable.

others simply don’t ring true. All that said, it was interesting to watch, it just didn’t leave a lasting impression. Let’s take a brief rundown of some movies in theaters that you might want to see and others you might want to put on your Netflix cue and “fuhgeddaboudit” ( yes, I looked it up — this is the most proper spelling out there). Tron Legacy, the Disney

animated gaming film is getting fair reviews; even better reviews are being tossed in the ring for The Fighter, a boxing drama starring Mark Wahlberg as a young “Irish” Mickey Ward. The latest installment in the Chronicles of Narnia series has mixed reviews, although even its critics say it doesn’t outright suck (my word, not theirs). Same is true for The Tourist, a seemingly suspenseful cat-andmouse game starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, though critics are calling it “soulless” and asking that you check your intellect at the door. But the final word this week is “Thanks!” The Cape May Film Festival cannot thank our supporters enough (especially those at Exit Zero) for all the help provided throughout what has turned out to be a great year! We visited more high schools than ever to show films and talk filmmaking, hosted more film camps than ever this summer, and had one of the best film festivals to date! And we now have 13,000 views on our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/capemayfilm). We are truly looking forward to a fantastic 2011.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

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

«

SKIPPER has had a tough time lately. While he is a sweet guy he is anxious at times and doesn’t like sudden movements. Due to this he must go to a home with older children, although he would most likely do best with just one person. All he needs is a stable home and lots of love and affection. If you’re a single person looking for a companion, check out Skipper and see if he’s right for you. Adoption fee is $95.

«

SHEBA is a very sweet gal who can be a little nervous now and then. She loves to play and is very respectful of people. She’s not too fond of being physically manipulated and would do best in a calm home where she would get plenty of exercise. If you can find it in your heart to give an older lady a second chance, please stop in at the shelter and meet her. She’d be thrilled to make your acquaintance! Adoption fee is $35.

«

AUBREY just loves to be around people, especially when she is outside playing. She’s very energetic and will need lots of exercise and stimulation. Since she is so exuberant we recommend she go to a family with older children. If you have the patience and are willing to dedicate the time needed for training, please stop by and meet Aubrey today. You’ll both be happy you did. Adoption fee is $95.

HOLIDAY SPECIAL GIFT CERTIFICATES - 40% OFF $80 is worth $149 (3 month membership) $155 is worth $259 (6 month membership) Or PERSONAL TRAINING - $20 PER SESSION when bought in blocks of 10 Or 6 MONTH MEMBERSHIP FOR $155 Offer expires 12/24/10

SPARKY will talk to you all day long! We’re guessing he’s saying something like, “Hey! Pick me! I’m a great guy! Please, please! Pick me!” With his glossy gray-andwhite fur and his pleasing manner, this guy deserves the attention he’s demanding. Why not stop by and see if Sparky could light up your life? Adoption fee is $35.

«

OLIVER is a mature male orange tiger and a chatty guy. He “growls,” but really he’s only talking to you. He has a tendency to be on the shy side, but will allow you to pet his head and is happy to accept any treats that come his way. Oliver will need time and affection, but you’ll be rewarded with a handsome cat. Adoption fee is $35.

«

CHIPMUNK and his brother, Squirrely, are virtually identical: they’re lively, friendly brown tabbies who are sweet as can be and just love to romp and play together. Because these brothers are such boon companions, we’d sure like to see them go home together. If you can only take one, Chipmunk’s adoption fee is $70.

The Cape May Crossword

None of that generic nonsense you see in other papers... a puzzle just for Exit Zero! By Dan Mathers. SO YOU love crosswords? Great. Sit down, get a cup (or glass) of your favorite beverage, relax and enjoy this puzzle. This week we’ll be playing “Name that Tune.” The clues are all Christmas lyrics; the answers all names of songs. The solution can be found on the front page of our website, www.exitzero.us. ACROSS 1. Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square in the frosty air. 6. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me. 7. Oh ho, the mistletoe hung where you can see. Somebody waits for you, kiss her once for me. 9. A song, a song, high above the tree with a voice as big as the sea, with a voice as big as the sea. 14. I wanna wish you a merry Christmas. I wanna wish you a merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart. 15. Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful. 16. Everybody knows some turkey and some mistletoe help to make the season bright. Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will find it hard to sleep tonight. 18. Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright. Hang your stockings and

say your prayers ‘cause Santa Claus comes tonight. 19. While the merry bells keep ringing, may your every wish come true. DOWN 2. Well, way up north where the air gets cold there’s a tale about Christmas that you’ve all been told. And, a real famous cat all dressed up in red, and he spends the whole year working out on his sled. 3. Giddy-yup, giddy-yup, giddy-yup let’s go, let’s look at the show. We’re riding in a wonderland of snow. 4. I spilled some ink on mommy’s rug; I made Tommy eat a bug; bought some gum with a penny slug; somebody snitched on me. 5. Said Santa to a boy, ‘What have you been looking for?’ ‘All I want for Christmas is a rock ‘n’ roll guitar,’ and then away went Rudolph whizzin’ like a shootin’ star.

Almost as impressive as Congress Hall’s

8. City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style. In the air there’s a feeling of

Christmas. 10. Where the tree tops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow. 11. Round yon Virgin Mother and child, holy infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace. 12. In the meadow we can build a snowman and pretend that he is Parson Brown. He’ll say ‘Are you married?’ we’ll say ‘No man, but you can do the job while you’re in town.’ 13. Hark! how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, “Throw cares away.” Christmas is here bringing good cheer to young and old, meek and the bold. 14. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, for when they placed it on his head he began to dance around. 17. Think of all the fun I’ve missed, think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed. Next year I could be oh-so good if you’d check off my Christmas list.

Bird Droppings

O

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

NLY the other day, yesterday in fact, I was walking along my favorite stretch of universe when I heard the unmistakable sound of a bird going “chap chap.” “Ahhhhh!” I said, which was the audible expression of the visceral pleasure I was experiencing. A pleasure directly related, as you might suspect, to the aforementioned “chap chap.” “Chap chap,” for those of you not in the know, is a common vocalization of the Sedge Wren. And a Sedge Wren, for those of you even less in the know, is a little, bitty, buff-andtaffy-colored mote of energy wrapped first in feathers and then in dense grass, reeds or (as the name implies) sedge. There are several wren species found in New Jersey. Among them the Carolina Wren, House Wren, Marsh Wren, Winter Wren... And the Sedge Wren. The thing about the Sedge Wren is that it is much less common than those other wrens. Generally harder to find. Harder to see. In fact, wrens as a rule are drab and skulking and avoid

the spotlight. If many species didn’t sing lustily, they would go wholly overlooked. An exception to this auditory splendor is the Sedge Wren. Their bare-bones song sounds like a cricket with a stutter. And my point is? I just love Sedge Wrens. Why? Because they are just great little birds who never get a fair shake. In the eyes of most people, even birders,

Sedge Wrens just don’t have the pizazz that propels birds to the top of the popularity charts. Nobody will ever put a Sedge Wren on a f lag or use it as the centerpiece of the national emblem – with arrows in one talon; an olive branch in the other. Nobody will ever write an Ode to a Sedge Wren. Nobody will ever note (or care) whether a Sedge Wren utters, or does not utter, the fateful pronouncement “nevermore.” Except in the case of a Sedge Wren, it would come out “Never, never, never, never moremoremoremoremoremoremore.” Nobody will ever bake four and twenty Sedge Wrens in a pie. Fact is, four and twenty Sedge Wrens would hardly make enough filling for a mid-sized Pop-Tart. And almost nobody (except for a fairly serious and accomplished birder) would even care to see a Sedge Wren. The reason they want to see one is because they’ve already seen the birds that sit on f lags,

The Perfect Gift For All Seasons

T

ADVERTISING FEATURE

HE final weeks for seeing The Little Prince at Cape May Stage are upon us. Laughter through tears is the experience of most audience members. Based on Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s fable, this beloved classic of children’s literature has been turned into a warm, wondrous production for the whole family. The title role is played by a puppet designed by multiple-Emmy award-winner Michael Schupbach. Guest Director Scott Hitz comes to Cape May Stage from the famed O’Neill Center where he was Master of Puppetry this past

Due to popular demand, Cape May Stage has added evening performances on December 22, 28 and 29 and a matinee on December 30 for “The Little Prince.” Right: “Steel Magnolias” will be a highlight of 2011 summer season – subscriptions make the perfect Holiday gift. season. Scott has been working on this production for over a decade. So many people are clamoring for tickets that five shows have been added to the schedule: evening performances on December 22, 28 and 29 and a matinee on December 21 and 30. Catch the world premiere at Cape May Stage before the production moves to Bristol Riverside Theatre in Pennsylvania and then on to other venues. Be the first to see it! PNC Arts Alive is sponsoring a signed ASL performance on Wednesday, December 29. Everyone should see this marvelous production in this very special venue. Plans for next season are already in place. Say Goodnight Gracie will be returning to start the season. Two comedies will follow: The Understudy and Steel Magnolias. Continuing the tradition of mounting new works, we have secured the rights to do a new version of William Mastrosimone’s The Woolgatherer. There

COMING UP AT CAPE MAY STAGE ASL Sing-interpreted “The Little Prince”

are plans for William Mastrosimone’s Extremities to be revived on Broadway next season. Mr. Mastrosimone will be in Cape May to work with us on this new version of his hit play which gained national attention in the 1980s when it played at Circle Repertory Company in New York of which Cape May Stage’s Artistic Director Roy Steinberg was a part. We have also applied for the rights to do Red, which won the Tony Award for Best Play this season on Broadway. Roy Steinberg will play the role of Rothko, the abstract expressionist painter. Christmas time will be more traditional next season with This Wonderful Life based on the screenplay It’s A Wonderful Life. This line-up for next season continues the party that always happens at Cape May Stage. Give the gift of theatre with a subscription to these wonderful shows.

Bird Droppings ? From Page 87 birds that rate an ode or two, birds that visit terminally depressed American writers, birds that make good pie filling... or oven stuffing roasters... or hot sauce swizzle sticks over Monday Night Football. Sedge Wrens are just plain not-everyday birds. Not here. Not without a measure of luck or skill. Once birders see all the everyday birds, they start anticipating the less-thaneveryday birds. Like the Sedge Wren. They start ascribing added value to birds whose appeal harks to a whisper, not a shout, and whose winsome qualities take effort to appreciate. So there I was. Walking along. Paying scant attention to the Bald Eagles f lying around. The Great Horned Owls sitting out. The Snow Geese and Black Ducks f lying all over and the dozen or so other birds that I might have studied and appreciated were it not for the fact that a little bird, tucked in the grass next to the road went “chap chap.” It takes time. Not unlike learning to distinguish the qualities of a fine port which, like the Sedge Wren, is something served later and afterwards. Sipped and savored. If you are interested in birds, including Sedge Wrens, consider a visit to the Cape May Bird Observatory. The CMBO’s

Northwood Center at 701 East Lake Drive overlooking lovely Lake Lily in Cape May Point, is THE information spot for anything to do with nature. The center is open from 9:30am– 4:30pm except Tuesdays, December through February. Ask any of our staff – they are always glad to help with anything you need. Check out the schedule of daily walks, pick up a free birding map and checklist and while you are there, don’t forget the newest books (including Pete Dunne’s newest Bayshore Summer – and Birds of Cape May – a beautiful array of photos just released by Kevin Karlson). Pick up a bargain from the vintage books section, look at some of the wonderful Charley Harper merchandise, binoculars and spotting scopes.
