The Police Blotter

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: Police received a report of a newborn baby having been discarded in a Walmart trash can. Upon further investigation they discovered it was simply a burrito.

Classic Quotations

A Story From The Past The original settlers of Alaska apparently were Russian. – Jeff Goldblum You never really know your friends from your enemies until the ice breaks. – Eskimo Proverb Yesterday is ashes; tomorrow wood. Only today the fire shines brightly. – Eskimo Proverb Even the strongest eagle cannot soar higher than the stars. – Eskimo Proverb The caribou feeds the wolf, but it is the wolf who keeps the caribou strong. – Eskimo Proverb Unlike children in other countries, the Eskimos played no game of war. They played with imaginary rifles and harpoons, but these were never directed against people but against the formidable beasts that haunted the vast wastes of their land. – Marie Herbert Lisa, vampires are make-believe, like elves, gremlins, and Eskimos. – Homer Simpson

Weird Word Of The Week

Kunik Commonly known as Eskimo kissing, the act is an intimate, non-sexual greeting that involves pressing your nose and upperlip against a loved one and breathing in.

National Archives

The following land deed was made between the Leni Lenape Indians and the earliest settlers of Cape May on January 1, 1687: “Beginning from the creek and so running up into the woodland, along by Carman’s line to a white oak tree, at the head of the swamp, and running with marked trees to a white oak by a pond joining to Jonathan Pine’s bounds. All the land and marsh lying and between the bounds above mentioned and Cape Island.” – Ben Miller

Random Fact Of The Week

THE claim that Eskimos have an unusually large number of words for the word snow is simply an urban legend. There is no single “Eskimo” language, but the Inuit group of languages use suffixes like we use adjectives. It is believed this led to the misconception.

Fortune Cookie Of The Week J Q. What is contain it everything? A. Wisdom. 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 an two orders of broccoli and chicken. Please note: Any typos are not ours, but those of the fortune cookie manufacturers. We print them as we find them.

Ramblings From The Editors

U

Ideas, idle gossip and occasionally important odds ’n’ ends... by Jon Roth

NLESS you decided to hibernate for the past month, you probably know there’s been a lot of turmoil overseas lately. In Egypt, an 18-day revolution succeeded in overthrowing former President Mubarak’s rule of nearly 30 years. As revolutions go, this one was relatively non-violent, but it’s still a very dangerous time to be in the country. It’s easy to see images of civil strife on the TV screen and think ourselves far removed from struggles for freedom halfway around the world, but for Don Schweikert and Sandy Miller, two Cape May residents and owners of the Saltwood House and Windward House, respectively, it was an experience they’ll never forget – they were there. Don says that after landing with their tour group in Cairo on January 25, they travelled to Alexandria, Egypt’s second-largest city, for a day and night of sight-seeing. The next day, just before the mid-day prayers, they were “taken directly back to the hotel and put on lockdown.” That was when the demonstrations began. Don says “we could see from our hotel barricades being set up and tanks running up and down the Corniche [Alexandria’s equivalent of Beach Avenue]. We saw demonstrators and tear gas being used.” Don and Sandy were kept in their hotel for five days. Along with the other members of the tour group, Don says “we were the only people staying in a hotel that was about the size of Congress Hall.” During their stay they saw many tanks and military troops, but almost no police. “The police in Egypt cause a lot of problems,” Don says. “You had to pay them off to get anything, so they were much-hated in Alexandria.” During curfew, which ran from 3pm to 8am, they saw vigilantes maintaining security on street

corners. “They had barricades of trash cans and whatever they could find, and if anybody came down the street, they checked them for security. We didn’t see much in the way of confrontation, but some saw more than others.” Days later the tour group arrived at the airport in downtown Alexandria (driving past a burnt-out police station) and waited four hours past the scheduled take-off time, largely because the government internet ban had pilots scrambling to find their flight plans. Don says when the plane finally departed for Rome, those in the tour group “were the only people on board the flight. There were 48 of us on a plane that would have taken 140. There were applause as we took off from Alexandria and applause as we landed in Rome.” Meanwhile, locals in the Magallanes region of Chile were staging their own protests in reaction to a steep hike in natural gas prices. You might think Chile, being a South American nation, is generally pretty toasty, but the Magallanes lie at the southernmost tip of this narrow country, meaning they’re about as far from Antarctica as, say, Scotland is from the North Pole. In short, they need their heat. Joan and Dane Wells, two Cape May legends

and former owners of the Queen Victoria B&B, were the unfortunate recipients of the natives’ ire during their recent vacation there. Joan tells us that local protestors in Magallanes decided to blockade all the major roads in the region, “thereby holding hostage all of us who were scheduled to depart from the only major airport at Punta Arenas… I’m told there were over 4,000 people trapped in the region for some time.” She says they were never in any danger: “the protesters had a PortaPotty on site, offered us water and sopapillas, and were generally friendly.” Finally, Dane and Joan were allowed to take their luggage and walk a half-mile down the road, where buses were waiting to take them to a hotel. They spent the following day at a Red Cross shelter and another night in the hotel before they were airlifted out of the area and to the airport. “Other than missing our onward flight and our trip to Easter Island (at a substantial cost, I must say, since LAN Chile won’t refund our money), we only had a test of our patience and understanding,” Joan says. With stories like these, you’ll have a little more perspective the next time inclement weather delays your flight. To see a photo of Joan and Dane in Chile with Cape May’s finest periodical, turn to page 67. ON AN unrelated but important note, local and out-of-town subscribers to Exit Zero should rifle through these pages for a Golden Ticket. Whoever finds one wins a three-month subscription extension, a $25 store credit, and free copies of Cool Cape May and The First Resort. There will be two winners every month, so read carefully! PAY attention, advertisers! The deadline to reserve ad space for our first color issue for May/June is this Friday, February 18.

LCMR wrestling finished its season Saturday, losing a tough bout to Brick Township. The Cape Tigers’ final record on the season was 10-8, and leading the way was senior captain Steve Rossi – our featured Athlete of the Week. Rossi has been the captain for the past two seasons and has worked hard to earn that title. According to coach Rocky Ciccozzi, “Steve has always done what I have asked him to do. He will wrestle anybody that I put in front of him and leave it all on the mat.” Rossi, born February 17, 1992, is the son of Steve and Rhonda Rossi of Erma. He has four siblings: Kelly, 28 (former cheerleader and track participant), Melissa, 27 (former cheerleader and track participant), Christine, 20 (competitive dancer), and Dan, 17 (aspiring filmmaker). Rossi’s dedication has grown alongside his talent throughout an outstanding career, as showcased by his favorite memory: his participation in the Rutgers Wrestling Camp. Rossi’s advice to future wrestlers? “Win, pick up bonus points, stay off your back, and win by trying your best.” PHOTOGRAPH AND STORY BY TIM GIPPLE

Name: Lesley Finneran. Workplace: Bay Springs Alpaca Farm (and Splash). Age: Thirty-six. Hometown: New York City. How long have you worked there? I’ve been working on Sundays (my day off from my other job) since the spring of 2010. I work with another woman, Erin Peek. We handle regular barn chores, moving hay, feed and bedding. We give the animals preventative shots and vitamins, and trim their toenails. We also work on handling the animals, getting them halter-trained, loading and unloading the trailer and preparing for alpaca shows. Best thing about the job? Lots! It’s outside, I have excellent bosses, a fun coworker, great animals, warm socks and yarn. What do you recommend here? Come for a visit, learn about the animals, and shop at the farm store – it’s worth the trip. The farm is open for visitors Saturdays and Sundays; Erin and I are there Sunday mornings. What’s your OTHER dream job? I have two: stock contractor for the Professional Bull-Riders’ Association or having a Saxon Merino sheep farm. Favorite thing about Cape May? I really like the Whale’s Tale and Splash (which, coincidentally, is where I work full-time). Interview by Kate Chadwick

EVERY week our photographer Danielle O’Neal roams the streets of Cape May on a mission... to give away a $50 gift certificate to spend at a local business. But it’s not quite THAT easy – first of all, the lucky recipient has to answer three questions related to our theme issue, which this week is all about Eskimos. This week’s winner is Steve Hurtt, 63, from Brigantine, New Jersey. We found Steve strolling the Washington Street Mall with his lovely companion. Here are his answers to our piercing questions: Guess how many words Eskimos have for snow? Seven. Have you ever had an Eskimo kiss? Yes Where do Eskimos live? The Arctic.

Customer Service

M

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

OST people think that the hardest thing about waiting tables is dealing with grumpy customers. Others assume it’s tiptoeing around sensitive cooks who spend an entire night fuming after table four sends back an undercooked salmon. Still others guess that wearing the uniform, one that could make even Heidi Klum look frumpy, is the most difficult part of the job. But a server learns to handle the tantrums of a line cook with grace, and the badgering of unruly guests with poise. And the uniform, well, she learns to grin and bear it. But there’s one thing that a server never gets used to, one thing that always manages to turn her from a composed professional into a gawky fool. Servers hate waiting on people they know. Last night, I served my dermatologist. I didn’t want to acknowledge him as I would a perfect stranger – with a generic welcome and a run-down of special entrees. This would have been rude; I’ve known the guy for years. But what was I supposed to say?

“Hey, doc, the last time you saw me, I was wearing hot pink undies and complaining about the mole on my butt. Can I bring you a wine list?” Instead, I recommended that he stay away from the Sunrise Martini – “Get it? SUNrise?” – and awkwardly backed away from the table. Once, I had to wait on a former teacher, one whose class I skipped nearly once a week my junior year of high school. Every time I approached her table she raised an eyebrow as though she was stunned, and just a little disappointed, to see me wearing an apron instead of a prison jumpsuit. A few weeks later, on the next table over, I served a guy I’d been smitten with

since my hooky-playing days. I’d seen him a couple of times enjoying wings at the C-View and I’d been hoping that one day, he might notice me. He finally did, as did his beautiful date, when I exploded a bottle of Veuve Clicquot onto their tablecloth and the sleeve of my frumpiest uniform shirt. This is the reality of waiting tables in Cape May. The man you once told off at Wawa for snaking your parking spot might be leering at you from across the dining room, and those mean girls from elementary school might show up demanding more bar mix. This is a small town, and a girl’s personal life is bound to collide with her professional one from time to time. But it isn’t all bad. After so many nights of waiting on people you know, you learn to appreciate those you don’t. So when the anonymous couple on table three complains about their food, I can’t help but look at their unfamiliar faces and smile. Sure, they’re needy and might not leave the best tip, but at least these particular customers have never seen me in my underwear.

The Old Fogey

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

I

T’S the Eskimos I feel sorriest for. As the planet warms, the seas rise and the glaciers melt, their ancestral lands vanish and they are lost, drifting on shrinking ice f loes, miles from the arctic wastes they call home. They pace mournfully, shaking their heads, sometimes rising on their hind paws to look around and sniff the air. Their fur grows dull and loses its white sheen, their cubs… Oh hold on, my faithful manservant Kitchener is running at me across the lounge, from the library, to where I am dictating this to the new telephonic device which connects me to this newspaper’s Scotch f lâneur of an editor-in-chief as he scribbles down every word I utter. What’s that, Kitchener? A pictorial dictionary, open at E… Oh, I SEE… Well damn my eyes. Who knew? Right, well, Eskimos, eh? They’ll be just fine. Cheery little chaps, great teeth, smiley faces, they can all come to Cape May and take the summer jobs from those inconsolable eastern European teens. It’ll brighten the place up to no end.

I remember when I first met the Inuit, as they love to be called and which as a result I never DO call them face-to-face. It’s one of the first lessons I learned about dealing with savages: look them right in the eye, smile without showing your teeth and mispronounce their names. Teaches them what to expect. It did me well in the jungles of Borneo, the mountains of Tibet and the dark heart of Wildwood. I was hunting the great white whale with Ernie Hemingway and a demented

chap who seemed to go by the name of Mishmael, and we had lost the track somewhere shy of the North Pole. Sea creatures leave tracks – you just have to know what to look for. I once tracked a cod across the Atlantic after it took the wedding ring from my finger (along with the finger) one summer. I retrieved the ring, sewed the digit back on and had lovely fish ’n’ chips for tea. Well, those Eskimos were a game lot, and thanks to them we finally cornered the white beast in an ice lake during a blizzard. Imagine, if you will, how hard THAT was to spot – a white whale in a white lake in the snow. Finally we located it using our fingertips and killed it with karate chops only, plus a stick of dynamite I had brought along and shoved down its blowhole. Or I think it was a blowhole. And I think it was the whale. Anyway, when the smoke cleared there was a lot of mess and the Eskimos were boiling a pot of water for either the whale or Ernie, whom they despised. I didn’t hang around to see which.

Cape May Must Haves

The finest things from the shops of this charmed city... by Kate Chadwick

Scarf From Fiber Arts Yarn Shop

Coffee From Tommy’s Folly

Tea from Tea By The Sea

This scarf would be hand-knit by you, of course! Three-week knitting courses, a floor-to-ceiling yarn selection, knowledgeable staff, and a couple of winters like the ones we’ve just had should be more than enough to get you motivated. It’s $40 for a three-week session; yarn prices vary. 315 Ocean Street, Washington Commons, 609-8988080. www.yarnsrus.net

When the cold is really biting, wrap your chilly little fingers around a steaming cup of joe from the hottest coffee shop in town. Select a delectable muffin or a breakfast bar to go along with it. Too late for coffee? Savory soups and scrumptious paninis are on the menu, too. Located in Congress Hall, 251 Beach Avenue, 609-884-6522. www.congresshall.com

If coffee isn’t your cup of tea, don’t fret, just stroll down the street to Tea By The Sea for a different kind of beverage break. There are more than 250 teas to suit your fancy – from basic black and green varieties to any herbal mixture you can imagine, as well as oh-so-civilized china sets for your next tea party. 405 West Perry Street, 609-884-4832. www.teaincapemay.com

Uggs From Casale’s Shoes

A Home Check-Up From PPS

Socks From Bay Springs Alpaca Farm

The Casale’s family have been keeping Cape May feet properly outfitted since 1959, and carry Uggs for men, women and children. 415 Washington Street, 609-884-4138. www.casalesshoes.com

If Cape May is your home away from home, ensure that it’s being properly looked after in the chilly weather while you’re off on your private island, courtesy of the folks from Professional Property Service. Window replacements, after-storm inspections, and HVAC are among the many services they offer. 609-770-8357. www.professionalpropertyservice.com

As they say at Bay Springs Alpaca Farm, wearing these socks is just like having two feet in heaven.

The Answer Lady

T

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 lost some weight last year, and I was able to buy a bunch of new clothes. It’s so nice to have pretty skirts and things that never quite looked right before in my wardrobe! But I still don’t feel like I’ve got the look I want... Don’t clothes make the woman? – Still Not Model Material Dear Model Not to be impertinent, dear, but have you given any thought to your bra? We put all this time, effort and money into shopping for the clothes we love, and apparently a whopping 70-80% of us are running around (well, hopefully not running around) wearing the wrong-sized bra. Get thee to a bra therapist – yes, a bra therapist! – at Lace Silhouettes to make sure your foundation garments are worthy of your cool new couture. And let’s not forget eye-

Wise answers to perplexing questions

wear. Make an appointment with Dr Arlene Hughes Gorny to update your glasses – they’ve got a winter sale on right now. Think about your hairstyle and color, and even your make-up. Putting new clothes on while still sporting the same style from the neck up is like putting the proverbial lipstick on the proverbial pig – no offense. The good folks at Shear Sunsations will see to it that you have the most updated ’do. Clothes can make the woman, and we all want to look divine, but the devil is in the details.

Dear Answer Lady My boyfriend just left me for a younger, better-looking girl. I am devastated. How do I get over this? – Broken Hearted Dear Heart Would you feel better if your boyfriend left you for a younger, better-looking boy? He left you, and it hurts, but stewing over who he left you “for” is not doing us any good here, gentle reader. Clearly he is not the man for you – and if he DID leave you just for the sake of youth and beauty, he is a cad as well. So to him we say (repeat your new mantra after the Answer Lady): “Screw you, good luck with your chippie and have a nice life – it is onward and upward for me.” The Answer Lady is not in the habit of using such coarse language and she apologizes, but sometimes the situation calls for it. It is irrelevant whether or not you actually believe this new mantra, by the way. Repeat it until you do believe it – there is transformative power in words. Pamper yourself for now and know that somewhere there is a man who deserves you.

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. The answers to the crossword are all related to this week’s issue. Our theme this week: Eskimos. The solution can be found on the front page of our website, www.exitzero.us. ACROSS 1. This city, the northernmost in the United States, has a population of less than 4,000 and falls within a traditionally Eskimo region of northern Alaska. 3. In Greenland, the natives don’t refer to themselves as Eskimos (it’s considered a pejorative term), but rather use this selfexplanatory word. 6. Though it is widely disputed, Robert Peary, with the help of four Eskimo men, claimed to be the first to reach this geographic location. 8. The Eskimos are an ice hockey club established at this prestigious English university in the 1930s. 10. Although in their language this word refers to any type of home, most people imagine it to be a round, little house made of snow. 11. The Eskimo people are spread across Greenland, Canada, Alaska and the eastern portion of this huge Russian region. 14. When water could not be easily reached,

A precursor of modern outerwear... see 15 Down.

Eskimos would make a hole in the ice and do this. It is now a popular pastime in many frigid climates. 16. In this country, the Eskimo primarily live in the regions of Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. 17. This traditional Eskimo eyewear covered the eye entirely except for a small slit of visibility. They helped with the blinding light reflecting off snow. DOWN 2. This alternative rock group – famous for songs like “Under the Bridge” and “Californication” – also recorded a song titled “Eskimo.” 4. This is a correct – though antiquated – alternative spelling for “Eskimo.” 5. This large, aquatic mammal formed a significant portion of the Eskimo diet for centuries. Its bones were used to build homes and sleds. 6. Eskimo Pie is a brand of chocolatecovered vanilla ice cream bar wrapped

in foil that is currently marketed by this international food giant. 7. There are two main groups of indigenous people that we classify as Eskimo – the Yupik and this group of people native to the circumpolar region. 9. Homo sapiens made their way to the Americas (and eventually became Eskimos) when an ice age created a land bridge across this body of water. 12. It is thought that some groups of Eskimos, those settled in eastern Canada and Greenland, came in contact with these early settlers. 13. “Quinn the Eskimo (Mighty Quinn)” is a folk-rock song written by this popular American singer-songwriter for his The Basement Tapes album. 15. This heavy, hooded jacket was invented by Eskimos to protect the head and face from cold. It is often lined with fleece but was originally made from caribou or seal and lined with fur.

The Dating Column

W

Stella Dixon’s take on romance on old Cape Island

HEN I was a little girl, I’d spend rainy Saturday mornings watching my beloved VHS copy of Father of the Bride. In the movie, the character of Steve Martin’s engaged daughter is only 22 years old. When I was twelve, I couldn’t picture it any other way. In my pre-teen mind, the age of this girl was as perfect as her bouncy hair. I decided I would be just like her. I announced to my parents that I, too, would be engaged by the very appropriate age of 22. One might think that a deadline a girl sets for herself as a teeny-bopper is likely to be replaced or forgotten by the time she grows up. But such a deadline is a lot like the stuffed and tattered panda bear you loved so much as a child, stashed under the bed in between pink rollerblades and old birthday cards. You haven’t even thought about it in years. You know it’s a silly thing to hold on to. But to toss it out entirely? That would be like tossing out a small piece of yourself. So there it was – this looming goal of matrimony by 22 – stitched to my subcon-

scious as tightly as my mother used to stitch an errant eye back into that panda bear’s face. Despite my best intentions, 22 came and went. As did 23 and 24. One day, I woke up closer to being 30 than to being a bride. I started thinking about the timelines we impose on dating. Marriage by a certain age – yes. Kissing on a first date – no. Constantly in a state of worry that our relationships are moving along too fast or too slowly – of course. A friend of mine told me

Special Offer 2 ONE HOUR MASSAGES Only $100 Get one as a gift and one for yourself!

recently that she can’t tell the man she’s dating that she loves him yet, because she’s only been seeing him for three months. “But you do love him,” I said, “so what does it matter?” It matters because we live in a society obsessed with rules. It’s the reason we wait three days after a date before calling. It’s the reason I’m shocked and just a bit judgmental when I meet a couple who runs off to a chapel in Vegas after dating only six months. We worry about appearances. We worry about artificial deadlines. We worry about the rules we learned from watching TV on rainy Saturday mornings. Then, one day, you realize that you’re not twelve anymore. You stop caring so much about whether or not you’re doing the right thing at the exact right moment. You learn to throw out expectations, along with the pink roller blades and stuffed panda bears from your childhood. Because you’re not the bouncy-haired star of that movie you loved so much as a kid. The script of your life might be something altogether different than you’d imagined. And, if you can give it a chance, it might turn out even better than that.

Activity Of The Week

O

A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Party Like the Presidents.

N PRESIDENT’S Day, it’s easy to be cynical about American politics. Few of our leaders live up to the standards set by Washington or Lincoln, but as people in Egypt struggle for the right to hold free elections, it’s important to celebrate the peaceful transition of power we take for granted. Salute our American presidents with some presidential-style activities. As America’s oldest seaside resort, Cape May has experience entertaining presidents. Pierce may have been the first to visit, and there is a lingering myth that Abraham Lincoln slept here. 19th-century presidents believed in a blend of recreation and work for optimum health. Since then, presidents have taken advantage of improved travel to get away from it all. For presidents with family estates, vacations were easy. We think of FDR at Hyde Park, Reagan at his ranch, Kennedy on a sailboat near Hyannisport, and Eisenhower at his Gettysburg farm. Presidents without such properties had to mingle with the masses,

and the masses led them to Cape May. Presidential activities abound here. Surely, George Washington, who operated his own distillery, would visit one of Cape May’s taverns for a sample of fine spirits; while Rutherford B. Hayes, who kept the White House dry, would recommend a nice afternoon tea. Visit a local restaurant and indulge your inner gourmand like Ulysses S. Grant, who liked 29 courses with at least nine different wines. Or, emulate Woodrow

Wilson’s “Meatless Mondays.” While his plan was designed to save meat for the troops fighting World War One, you can do it for health. Try Higher Grounds or Bella Vida for some vegetarian fare. Share Chester Arthur’s love of fashion? Hit the stores until you can match his flair – he owned 80 pairs of trousers – and celebrate, as he would, with a fine cigar – try Up In Smoke. Give a nod to the music-loving presidents and sample a band like Blondage at the Mad Batter or Marnie & Nate at the Brown Room. Or exercise in Theodore Roosevelt’s style with a vigorous hike along the beach. Share Teddy’s love of animals? Head to the zoo to see exotic species. FDR caught his cousin’s interest in conservation, and you can too – visit the Nature Center for information on preserving the native plants in your backyard. Presidents who find that it’s lonely at the top are told, ”If you need a friend, get a dog.” If you need a friend, you can find one at the animal shelter. Make an executive decision to spend President’s Day in Cape May. Next week: The Kids Can Expo

The Movie Column

I

Tom Sims, Director of the Cape May Film Festival, reviews “True Grit”

’VE never been a John Wayne fan… Did I lose any readers with that opener? Sorry but I always feel like he’s playing… John Wayne. So when I heard a “reimagining” of True Grit was coming out, I wasn’t all that interested. The 1969 film won John Wayne an Oscar. But when I heard the remake was from the Coen Brothers, I was mildly interested. Having seen the film now four times, you could say I’ve become somewhat of a groupie. The first thing you notice about the film is its amazing attention to detail. Some will criticize the film for its language — not that there was any cursing (there was none) but the phrasing was awkward and sometimes difficult to follow. But you won’t hear me say that. Remember, I’m a groupie. To me, the film’s language was as important as the props used to give us a sense of the past. True Grit tells the story of a 14-year-old girl Mattie, played masterfully by Hailee Steinfeld. She hires a drunken, rundown US Marshall (Oscar-worthy performance by Jeff Bridges) to bring in her father’s killer (played by Josh Brolin). The two get some unwanted

Bridges and Steinfeld deliver fine performances, along with the rest of the cast in “True Grit.” help from a Texas Ranger (Matt Damon) to track down the killer, who is running with outlaw Lucky Ned Pepper (Barry Pepper). This film was marked by gold standard acting performances from the entire cast. The Coen Brothers have once again proven that their style of filmmaking and storytelling

Robert Panaccio, VMD Robert Moffatt, VMD Patricia Link, DVM

is among the best in Hollywood. Just out of curiosity, I did rent the 1969 original and was impressed by how much of the original was mimicked in the remake — but with more than 40 years between them, they’re difficult to compare. In the original, Glen Campbell played the ranger, and a very young Robert Duvall played Ned Pepper. Do I recommend the remake of True Grit? You might be okay with just one screening. Quick Review of Somewhere: This is the latest offering from Sofia Coppola (daughter of the great director Francis Ford Coppola). This film may have been better titled Nowhere — that seems to be where Coppola is taking us. There are great moments of acting genius from the leads, Stephen Dorf and Ella Fanning — especially from the young sister of Dakota, but that only makes you that much more ticked off that these talents were squandered on a shoddy storyline. For a free voucher to the 2011 Cape May Film Festival, email the answer to this question to capemayfilm@hotmail.com: For what other film did John Wayne win an Oscar?

Bird Droppings

E

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

VERYBODY is seeing red – especially if you forgot that Monday was Valentine’s Day. And local restaurant and lodging owners are looking for the red to turn black as they gear up for another tourist season. Me? I like to see both! Red and black are the colors of love in the bird world, too. Or should I say, two? Take the Northern Cardinal. You know. The “Cardinal red” bird. The all-red bird with a rakish crest and a narrow black mask that sits outside your window every morning and sings his heart out. Cardinals rank among the Cape’s earliest vocalists. January males hitch themselves onto a high perch with the obvious intent of catching a lady’s eye. Singing serves much the same ambition. The song sounds something like: “Two, two, two, two, two.” Translated, the song might go something like this: “Hi. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mr Right. Hey babe. You and me. How about it? You and me equals two. Just like the

notes in the bird’s song. For birds, as well as humans, two is the magic number. Like humans, in the bird world the number three means one too many. Singing Cardinals get this point in song, too. Translated, this underscoring counterrhyme might go something like this: “Beat it bub. This perch is taken. If I see your sorry crest in this corner of the

universe again I’m going to pluck you back to the age of amphibians.” What does the female Cardinal say about all this? She doesn’t. Only the male sings. How does she feel about being the center of so much attention? Not too bad. The population of Cardinals is doing fine and their range is expanding. Another bird that bears the red and black colors of the season (not to mention the hormonally elevated spirit) is the Red-winged Blackbird. Like Northern Cardinals, male Red-wingeds get into the courtship mood early. I’ve seen birds keyed up, vocalizing and displaying in December. How’s that for rushing the season? I actually find Red-winged Blackbirds more visually appealing than Cardinals. Maybe by February I’m sick of seeing Cardinals on the Christmas cards I’ve been too lazy to recycle. Maybe in a recent former life I was a female Red-winged Blackbird. Boot black with rust-edged feathers on

Bird Droppings ? From Page 71 the back, the bird’s name-sake characteristics are its big showy epaulets; the red shoulder patches that bloom every time the bird fans its wings. It is pretty stunning. A glowing coal that f lashes and disappears every time the bird utters the magic, mate-catching incantation: “Tur-a-ling.” Sounds a little Irish doesn’t it? Well we’re closing in on St Patrick’s Day, too. We had a photo on display at our Sluice Creek Gallery at the Center for Research & Education in Goshen – a Red-winged Blackbird displaying from a cattail stalk. This image cut through everything else in the room and grabbed my eye. In fact, you can look for it on the cover of the next New Jersey Audubon magazine. That’s our quarterly magazine that gets sent to all NJ Audubon members. Not a member? Well, you can take a walk through The Nature Conservancy just off Sunset Boulevard. Walk down the center path. See real, live male Red-winged Blackbirds hitched up on cattail stalks. They’re courting now. Doing their best to catch the eye. Not yours, of course. But if you like to

The Red-winged Blackbird delivering love songs. watch, no harm done. Heck, next to something as showy as a male Red-winged Blackbird, you’re hardly competition. Would you like the opportunity to watch more birds, more often? Then head over to the Cape May Bird Observatory in Cape May Point. The CMBO offers naturalist-led field trips throughout the year; every day in spring and fall – sometimes twice a day! All you need to do is stop by the CMBO’s Northwood Center at 701 East Lake Drive overlooking lovely Lake Lily in

Cape May Point, THE information spot for anything to do with nature. The center is open daily from 9:30am to 4:30pm except Tuesdays through the end of February. Ask any of our staff – they are always glad to help with anything you need – even things you didn’t know you needed yet. We are always eager to help new birders! 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 on and about birding and nature. Pick up a bargain from the vintage book selection, look at some of the wonderful Charley Harper merchandise, binoculars and spotting scopes. Need a gift for a nature enthusiast friend or loved one but are clueless as to what they want or need? Pick up a gift card, redeemable at any of our New Jersey Audubon Centers throughout the state. And if you aren’t fortunate enough to be in the area, visit us online at www. 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. Author of several books on and about nature (available at CMBO), he has written for virtually every birding publication and for The New York Times.
