The Police Blotter

DUBOIS, Pennsylania - A Burger King customer flew into a rage when a drive-through clerk told him they were out of French fries, then scuffled with officers and kicked out a police car window. He was charged with assault and reckless endangerment.

Classic Quotations

A Story From The Past “France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country.” Mark Twain “How can anyone govern a nation that has 240 different kinds of cheese?” Charles de Gaulle “They aren’t much at fighting wars anymore. Despite their reputation for fashion, their women have spindly legs. Their music is sappy. But they do know how to whip up a plate of grub.” Mike Royko “France is the most civilized country in the world and doesn’t care who knows it.” John Gunther “Dogs smoke in France.” Ozzy Osbourne “I don’t have to ‘freedom kiss’ my wife when what I want to do is French kiss her.” Woody Allen

with a solid plan to fund the $12.7 million necessary to establish the new ferry service, the Delaware River and Bay Authority agreed in 1963 to purchase four ships from the Chesapeake Bay and Tunnel District. These four vessels, three running on steam and the other using a more modern motor system, would make up the new Cape May-Lewes Ferry. On July 1, 1964, the Cape May-Lewes Ferry officially opened for business. Ben Miller

Weird Word Of The Week

FINANCIER Not what you think! A financier is a small French cake, a light, moist teacake similar to sponge cake, and it usually contains almond flavoring. Financiers are often baked in shaped molds, and the name is said to be derived from the traditional rectangular mold, which resembles a bar of gold.

Random Fact Of The Week

The guillotine was the execution method developed during the French Revolution by a surgeon, Dr Joseph Guillotin, and it remained the official method of execution until France abolished the death penalty in 1981. The last time it was used was in 1977.

Fortune Cookie Of The Week J “One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes.” 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 tofu teriyaki. 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


Ideas, idle gossip, and occasionally important odds ’n’ ends

his Saturday, July 16, is the second annual Cabanas Cape May Beach Bash volleyball tournament, so you can expect the beaches across the street from Cabanas (Decatur Street) to be covered in dozens of nets, with players ranging from intermediate to professional vying for prizes and places. If last year’s tournament is any indication, we can also expect plenty of spectators and a great party at Cabanas afterwards (there will be $2 Bud Light and Bud Light Lime from 3-7pm, plus 50% off food for participants and organizers). We’re glad to see Cabanas taking the initiative to organize such a great event – it’s the kind of big thinking that brings new visitors to Cape May, and it is also a lot of fun for those already here. Make sure to get to the tournament, even if you’re not playing. Last year’s open division saw exciting match-ups between former AVP Tour professionals, and the crowd got to soak it all up for free. Don’t miss the chance to see top-notch athletes right here on Cape May’s beaches. We’d like to send a big thank-you to both the folks who organized the Whale Of A Day Festival over in Townbank this past weekend, and to all the loyal EZ fans, both old and new, who stopped by to say hello and purchase a T-shirt, hat or book at our booth. What a lovely, small-town feel the festival had, and, despite the ghastly heat, everybody was friendly, relatively wellbehaved and seemed to have a lovely time. A special shout-out goes to Carol from the neighboring booth, for her assistance to EZ staffers with the putting up and taking down of our tent – and the purchase of not one but


out the aptly named Bliss in the Carpenters Square Mall, owned by Mike and Nicole Boschen, for some organic, homemade, triple-premium ice cream. Stay tuned for our full report after we pay a proper visit. WE’D LIKE to draw you attention to a (relatively) new weekly column, “Cape May Cooks,” penned by two inveterate chefs who call themselves Southern Belle and Knickerbocker. This pair have been compiling recipes specially designed to tickle the palates of Exit Zero readers. In fact, they are so specific to this publication that several of the recipes are labelled “EZ.” Turn to page 41 for this week’s installment, which is themed around shellfish – you’ll find recipes for that jewel of the ocean, the scallop, as well as an easy lobster meal for the whole family. And if you’re looking to make good use of those Jersey tomatoes, just you wait for our August color issue, when these dervishes of the kitchen whip up everything from bruschetta to gazpacho. ANOTHER piece of important news: Movies on the Beach are back in action. The Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting free movie screenings every Thursday night. Tonight, take the kids to see the animated film “Kenny the Shark,” then pass them off to the sitter while you sit back for Jaws, which is as apropos a movie as you could ask for in a beach town like ours. Next week, catch Alice in Wonderland. Stop by the beach at 7:30pm to take part in fun and games geared toward the kids, then sit back on a blanket or beach chair for some fine seashore cinema. For details on this and other events in the coming week, consult our hand “EZ Guide To What’s Going On,” which you’ll find on page 9.


two Cape Mayniac shirts! Speaking of well-organized events, we hear that the fundraiser for the US Coast Guard Flotilla #82, held this past Saturday night, was a smashing success. Gregg Reich of Sturdy Savings Bank, one of the event’s organizers, tells us, “The attendance, weather and vibe exceeded all expectations. We raised a substantial amount to benefit the USCG Auxiliary Flotilla #82, and we had a great time doing so. I personally was in heaven as the Lobster House was kind enough to donate an open oyster bar for the event. In addition, a generous few Cape May County-based businesses donated to the Silent Auction – a surfboard, a TAG Heuer watch and a bike were auctioned, just to name a few of the items. Our hosts, Michael and Jeannie O’Neill, couldn’t have been more welcoming or generous. All aspects of the event went smoothly and we appreciate Exit Zero coming to cover! The Flotilla is sincerely appreciative to all the supporters of the event.” SPEAKING of appreciation, we are thrilled to report the opening of another ice cream shop here in town. Check

Name: Brian Marker, Jr. Occupation: Busperson and kitchen help at Cucina Rosa Age: I’m 23. Hometown: I was born and raised here in Cape May. How long have you worked here? This is my eighth summer – I started here in May of 2003. Best thing about the job? That would have to be my great coworkers. It’s just a really strong crew of very nice people. What do you recommend here? My favorite is the Seafood Fra Diavlo. It’s pretty spicy, though! What’s your OTHER dream job? That would probably be teaching high school – graphic design, most likely. Favorite thing about Cape May? I like the way it changes. It’s never boring – crazy busy in the summer and much slower in the winter, but always has that small-town feeling.

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, the lucky recipient has to answer three questions related to our issue theme, which this week is all about France. This week’s winner is Amanda Reed, 22, an expectant momma from Dennis Township, NJ. We found Amanda and her companion strolling along the Washington Street Mall. Here are her answers to our piercing questions: What is the capital of France? Paris. Have you ever worn a beret? No. What kind of animal is Pepe le Pew? He’s a skunk! Amanda wins a $50 gift certificate to Harpoon Henry’s for answering our questions. Congratulations and enjoy! PHOTOGRAPH BY Danielle o’neal

Chance Meetings


Everett Chance wines and dines Cape May’s single ladies

F ALL George Costanza’s great lines on Seinfeld, this is one of my favorites: “Do you ever get down on your knees and thank God that you have access to me and my dementia?” And it came up in the context of Jerry having a threesome. Last week I told you that I might’ve had the tiniest chance for every man’s fantasy: a threesome. You got that I was joking, right? Not about every guy’s dream scenario – because trust me, we’ve all thought about it, prayed for it, and resigned ourselves to it never happening – but about the snowball’s chance in hell of me actually being involved in that menagerie. In the Seinfeld episode, Jerry is dating one woman, but is more attracted to her roommate. How to make the switch? He can’t, the switch is impossible, says George, unless... if Jerry suggests to his girlfriend that he’s interested in a threesome, the girlfriend will recoil in disgust and dump him. But she’ll tell the roommate about Jerry’s twisted plan, the roommate will be

intrigued, Jerry will “accidentally” call her, and voila, the switch is made. George’s plan is so demented that it nearly works, until the girlfriend actually wants to have the threesome. Jerry can’t handle it. “I’m not an orgy guy!” he shouts. Becoming an orgy guy, according to Jerry, involves a serious lifestyle change. Dressing differently, acting differently, growing a mustache, getting robes and lotions and a new bedspread and thick carpeting and

weird lighting. Like Jerry, I’m not ready for that. Like Jerry, I’m too neurotic. I’ve tried growing a mustache, and it ain’t pretty. Threesomes sound like fun, but I’m more into concentrating on one woman at a time. I’ll be happy enough if I can make her happy, a difficult enough task. Doubling the number of legs and lips and hands and other fun parts is more of a challenge than I can handle. And what about the emotions? I’d be a mess, worrying that I’m spending too much time concentrating on one woman and ignoring the other. The next day, who do you call first, without offending the other? I’m a simple man with simple tastes, and numbers greater than two blow my mind. I’m just not an orgy guy. Forget the menage a trois, let’s just have dinner for two. Send an email to info@, I’ll be in touch, and we’ll go to dinner at one of the Cape’s fine restaurants. Afterwards I’ll write all about it, a combined date and restaurant review. Your name will be changed, the restaurant’s won’t. Here’s your chance to have access to me and my (reasonably well-controlled) dementia.

Please ask him if he is, he likes that! – Cape May *** Re: the light at the intersection of Seashore and Ferry roads.

After having seen one accident and several near misses at this light, I think I’ve figured out the problem... There are two lights! There should only be one, fourlight stop light instead of a separate green arrow light along with the regular light. It is almost instinct to start driving once you see something turn green. So if you are going straight and the turn arrow turns green you feel like going. Just make it one light with a green arrow turn thing on the bottom and I think that would help solve this problem. – Cape May *** Speaking of stop lights... I think it is great to open Elmira Street to traffic both ways but... there should be a left turn arrow for those turning left onto Elmira from Lafayette. – Cape May *** can someone just remove that sign as you go over the West Cape May bridge onto the island that says tune to 1700am for tourist info for Cape May? Either remove it or make the station a viable one with actual tourist info and not just a bunch of fuzz! – North Villas *** I like baby cabbages but hate Brussels sprouts... go figure! – West Cape May

Cape May Cooks

A culinary column by Knickerbocker and the Southern Belle


ho knows what it was that inspired those early humans to consider eating something covered in a hard shell with pinching serrated claws? Archaeologists tell us we’ve been eating crustaceans (lobster, crab and shrimp) since prehistoric times. Commonly known as “shellfish,” they are not fish at all. Neither are mollusks like scallops and clams. This week we are sharing with you some of our favorite recipes for these glorious treasures from the sea. Scallops are the undisputed jewel in Cape May’s seafood crown, said to account for about three-quarters of the total dollar volume of seafood coming into the port. You won’t find better, fresher scallops anywhere! Grilled Cape May Sea Scallops with Curried Beach Plum Glaze 20 minutes plus 1 hour to marinate serves 4 as an entrée, 8 as an appetizer This dish is delicious as an appetizer or as an entrée served with couscous and a salad. ½ c olive oil ½ c beach plum jelly from local stands 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp curry powder 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated ¼ tsp salt 1 clove garlic, chopped 24 sea scallops from local markets Special equipment: 8 bamboo skewers, soaked 30 minutes in water In a large ceramic bowl, whisk the first eight ingredients until smooth. Add scallops and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate one hour. Thread

three scallops on each skewer. Grill or broil until scallops are done and glaze has caramelized, three minutes per side. Summer Shrimp Cocktail Salad 10 minutes serves 4 as an appetizer Try this variation instead of the usual red sauce, served in martini glasses. 1/2 pound cooked, shelled and deveined medium shrimp 8 cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs, (basil, mint, parsley, chives) 3 scallions, white and green parts, chopped zest of 1 lemon 1 tbsp lemon juice 2 tbsp olive oil salt and ground pepper Chop the shrimp into thirds and place in a bowl with remaining ingredients. Toss gently and heap into martini glasses, garnishing with a slice of lemon on the rim. Shell’s Crab Cakes 15 minutes, 30 minutes refrigeration serves 6 You can find wonderful crab cakes in Cape May’s restaurants, but wow your friends by making them at home. 2 eggs ¼ c mayonnaise 1 ½ tsp parsley 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning ½ tsp pepper 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp Dijon mustard 1 lb jumbo lump crabmeat ½ c cracker crumbs (Saltines) bread crumbs vegetable oil Beat the eggs and add the next six ingredients, mixing

EZ Steamed Lobster Shore Dinner 30 minutes serves 4 Fear of lobster? Here’s how to make that Jersey Shore dinner at home. Follow our EZ instructions and add melted butter, lemon wedges, corn and potato salad. You’re done! four 1 to 1½ lb lobsters, rinsed salt Special equipment: Lobster pot or 4-6 gallon stock pot with tight fitting cover, plus vegetable steamer or colander Pour water into bottom of lobster pot, if using, or into the stock pot, to a level of two inches, adding one teaspoon of salt per quart. Invert steamer or colander and place in the pot, providing a platform for the lobsters. Bring to a boil. Add the lobsters, head down, cover and steam 12 minutes for one pound and 14 minutes for oneand-a-half pounds, shaking the pot several times or rearranging the lobsters once during cooking. Remove the lobsters from the pot and let them rest a few minutes before serving. Pass the bibs, butter and lemon wedges and enjoy! Note: You can anesthetize the lobsters by placing them in the freezer for 15 minutes before steaming.

The Old Fogey


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

LOVE this joke: What’s the difference between the French and toast? You can make toast with soldiers! No, wait... You can toast a soldier! Hold on... That’s not it... Um... I never was good with a joke; the late Mrs D. used to say I was about as funny as a... Now what was it...? It was very amusing anyway, what she said. Anyway, where was I? Ah yes, the French and toast. Is there any difference between them? I think not... Or maybe that wasn’t the punchline... Certainly the French are at the same time very amusing and not at all funny. I did not get on well with General De Gaulle, who I think never forgave me for liberating Paris. Toulouse-Lautrec, now him I liked: he was three-and-a-half feet of fun; and I refer not to his height. Or so his harem of dancing girls assured me. I concede though that my own touch of French heritage has given me a certain je ne sais quoi, though I’m not sure what. And I do suit a beret, and my broad chest does fill out a Breton shirt impressively. Also, whilst it was an amusing turn of

phrase, I cannot entirely agree with the late President W.’s summing up of that nation as “cheese-eating surrender monkeys”: I fought with the French Foreign Legion in Vietnam and they were as tough a bunch of men as I have ever showered naked with. Though their incessant smoking of Gauloises cigarettes did tend to give our positions away to the enemy. Mimes, though – how I detest mimes, and none more than that whey-faced Marcel Marceau. I once chased him across

a Parisian rooftop after a (silent, obviously) insult he directed at me in a bar. I am quite sure he signaled that I was the illegitimate son of a lady of ill repute (which actaully might be the case – Ma D’Catur was a woman of many mysteries, and quick with the back of her hand whenever anyone tried to delve too deep into them), and I instantly went to punch him in his little painted face. He ducked, though, being quick as a weasel, and then he had the nerve to pretend to inspect his nails in boredom. Well, he certainly wasn’t bored when dodging a full clip from my Colt 45, I can tell you that for sure. However, to his credit, he did manage to avoid every round, and not once did he make a sound. Ah, wait... Now it comes back to me… Hold on… Right: What’s the difference between the French and toast? You can’t make soldiers from toast! No, wait… You CAN make soldiers from… or was it an omelette… You can’t make an omelette without breaking French toast? THAT sounds like it… You are doubtless helpless with laughter now.

Definitely not just your grandmother’s tearoom! Sure, you’ll find tasty tea sandwiches, freshly-baked scones and teabreads served with clotted cream, and that traditional, elegant service that you associate with fine dining. But there is so much more to The Carriage House. In addition to our traditional Tea Luncheon and Afternoon Tea, The Carriage House offers hearty fare from the café menu, plus homemade soups, and hearty wholesome entrée salads that fill you up while still letting you feel virtuous for eating a salad.

So try it today, and bring grandmom along, too…. She’ll love you for it!

Customer Service


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

am a sucker for a good infomercial. Once I’m 20 minutes into an ad, I’m convinced I need a “magic mop” or a kitchen knife that will cut through stone. The presentation sucks me in. I allow myself to believe that these products are special. It’s this magic butt-blaster that will whip my rear into shape instead of collecting dust under the bed, next to my magic ab-roller and my collection of magic Pilates DVDs. In the restaurant, I am your personal Billy Mays. I need to convince you that, of all the menu items in Cape May, my menu items are the most special. I even refer to some of these items as – how original – the “specials.” But I am lying to you, folks. An evening’s “special” additions are about as special as my butt-blaster is magic. At least where I work, these dishes are a collection of all the ingredients that no one’s been ordering all week. Take a dish, alter the preparation ever so slightly, jack up the price, have a server call it a special, and voila! It sells like hot cakes. When I approach a table, it’s often the

first question I get. I say, “How are you?” and my customer says, “Specials?” I am tempted to respond with “What a coincidence, sir, I’m doing ‘specials’ tonight, too.” Instead, I rattle off the list. If we aren’t offering anything additional on a given night, my guests look at me as though I were an airline attendant who just bumped them from first-class to coach. Even the first-timers are ticked, which I don’t understand. If you’re new to a restaurant’s menu, isn’t every item already a “special” one? The worst is when I run out of a “special” halfway though a night. A customer will spot a soft-shell crab from across a bustling dining room and demand to know

why she wasn’t offered the overpriced appetizer. I feel compelled to reassure her it’s not because I don’t find her special. And it’s best not to make jokes in such a situation about how most people are pleased not to have crabs. It doesn’t go over well. Sometimes, simply calling a dish “special” isn’t good enough. We need to call it something extra special. (Would I have bought that butt-blaster if it had been called a butt-trimmer? It’s questionable.) On the Fourth of July weekend, for example, the chef had us refer to the surf and turf as the “holiday barbeque.” Not only did the dish instantly become more special, but guests felt patriotic ordering it. We grow up being told we are special. We give every member of every pee-wee baseball team a trophy, even the losers. But for pete’s sake, does all of our food have to be extra special, too? Maybe we should all try ordering what we want instead of what we’re told we want. Unless, of course, what we’re told we want is a magic contraption guaranteed to tone your tush. A menu that could do that? Now that’d be special.

French Must Haves

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

French Cookbook From Atlantic Books

Baked Goods From Cape May Bakers

French Wine From Collier’s

Whether you’re a serious cook or just a dabbler – or even just a lover of books – every home should have a copy of Julia Child’s Mastering The Art Of French Cooking on the bookshelf. So pick one up at Atlantic Books, tap into your inner chef and start challenging yourself and impressing your friends and family. 500 Washington Street, 609-898-9694,

Oh, how sweet it is here at Cape May Bakers, with French delights all over the place. Croissants for breakfast: plain or chocolate, $3.25–$3.50. Or have a slice of delectable quiche, along with some French Roast coffee. Don’t forget dessert! Crème brulee for a mere $3.25. And take a baguette home for $4. 482 West Perry Street, 609-884-7454, www.

There are lots and lots of fine French wines to choose from here, but sometimes, you just want a little Fat Bastard. Collier’s carries the Chardonnay and Shiraz of Thierry and Guy’s remarkably full-bodied elixir, and for the low, low price of $10.99, you can get on of each. Lisa says it’s good, and that’s good enough for us. 202 Jackson Street, 609884-8488,

French Cheese From Seaside Cheese

French Market Soup From Love The Cook

Lingerie From Lace Silhouettes

If you’re going to have wine, might as well smile and say cheese. This Delice de Bourgogne cow’s milk cheese from our buddies at Seaside Cheese is sublime. It’s a soft cheese, similar to Brie, but with a bit of a bite, it’s great just spread on some French bread, or as a dessert cheese with some fresh fruit. 600 Park Boulevard, #5, 609-8848700,

Staying in for the evening? You’ve got your baguette, you’ve got your wine, now just put on a pot of French Market 18 Bean Soup from Love The Cook and call it dinner. Added bonus: it’s an authentic goodluck soup from America’s oldest market in the French Quarter of New Orleans. $6.99. 404 Washington Street, 609-884-9292, www.

You’ve had a little dinner, you’ve had a little wine, and now it’s time for a little… well, you know. Let this sassy little French maidinspired corset from b.tempt’d by Wacoal and these sexy sandals by Jacques Levine set the tone for the rest of the evening’s activities. The corset is $58 and the sandals are $48. 429 Washington Street, 609-898-7448, www.

The Answer Lady


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 Dear Answer Lady We were at a great happy hour at Harpoon Henry’s last Friday that was nearly ruined by my idiot boyfriend. I got stuck in a corner, trapped by an obnoxious woman who would NOT stop talking to me. This went on for nearly an hour, and I barely got a word in edgewise. I finally got away from her by sprinting for the bathroom as soon as the door opened. Meanwhile, my boyfriend made the rounds, having a grand old time and completely oblivious to my plight. How to make sure this never happens again? – Simmering Dear Simmering The Answer Lady suggests you dump his oblivious butt immediately. She jests, of course, but if you open a door, the Answer Lady will walk through it. Clearly, the two of you have not established a signal, which

him to phone her, so she could extricate herself from a conversation with a loquacious acquaintance she ran into while picking up lunch at Tisha’s. Establish a signal that works for you, and use it! Dear Answer Lady I’m getting married soon, and I hate to sound like a brat, but I’m DREADING the bridal shower! I feel like such an ingrate to not want to go to a party full of people bearing gifts for me, but every bridal shower I’ve ever attended has been such a drag. Adjust my attitude, please! – Honest Bride To Be is mandatory for any couple who socializes regularly. Signals can range from “Get me away from this idiot,” to “I have had enough of this shindig,” to “If you have one more beer, we are SO out of here and you are in for a LONG ride home.” Signals can be facial expressions (the Answer Lady favors a raised eyebrow and a slight cock of the head towards the door); a gesture, such as pulling on one’s earlobe; and let us not forget the handy cell phone. The Answer Lady recently texted an EZ colleague and asked

Dear Honest The Answer Lady detests disappointing someone in search of a proper talking-to, but there are fewer things on this earth that she herself loathes more than bridal and (heaven help her) baby showers. Having said that, let us remind ourselves that they are part of the process, and it’s a great opportunity to be with family and friends who only want to wish you joy. So put on a happy face, and remember: some things in life, like childbirth, are painful. But, also like childbirth, they are finite. Give yourself a gratitude check.

Vampire City

Winged invaders terrorize Cape May in a chilling new installment of Terry O’Brien’s short story Chapter 7: Blinded by the Light


annah Von Port, 113 years old, jogged with deadly purpose. It had been only 15 minutes since the phone conversation with her father, Abraham Van Helsing, who was, apparently, paterfamilias of the last remaining clan of vampires in the Americas. What was it he said? Something about being able to make more vampires any time he wanted? But preferring quality over quantity? She had never thought her father a vain man, in fact she had never met the man in any meaningful way after infancy, but she hoped he was true to his word and this vanity, this quest for purity, meant fewer foes to dispose of. She was tired of it. Not tired in any physical way; her semi-humanness allowed her to go for weeks without sleep and days without feeling fatigue. It was what allowed her to run at a sprinter’s clip the more than five miles to Cape May Point. She was now less than a mile from the lighthouse as

Vampire City ? From Page 79 she banked a hard left down Lighthouse Road. The lighthouse. For decades lighthouses had been vampire strongholds for various practical and superstitious reasons. It was the Cape May Lighthouse where she would make her final stand. The plan had played out pretty much exactly as expected. Except for the part about her longthought-deceased father being their leader. That was a wrinkle. Otherwise, it had gone off almost like clockwork, beginning with her funding of a green initiative to run the lighthouse on solar energy. She’d always heard her father was a disciplined man, but one who also appreciated a good joke. She hoped he saw the irony in their private lair now being powered by the sun. It was with this thought that the lighthouse came into sight. Without slowing she approached the entrance doors, fingered loose the blade attached to her thigh, and thought of going only one direction from here: down. She ran. Predictably, several creatures attacked from the surrounding shrubbery and were neatly dispatched. She wiped the blade across her pant leg and approached the doors; locked. Two seconds later they were open, the jambs shattered from a powerful kick. In the lobby she took quick inventory; where was the door to the lair? It would not be obvious, but it had to be sizeable enough to allow entry to groups of vampires and their prey. She scanned; desk, bathroom, vending machines, supply closet, stairs… supply closet. She smiled. Of course it was the closet. Hadn’t she put all of her own secret entries into closets or pantries? And wasn’t the leader of this clan her father? She opened it, and after a few seconds of searching, found the device that opened the false door in the back. Genetics are a powerful thing. Of course there were two guards just inside the entry way,

and of course she destroyed them with a few flicks of the wrist. This was all just gamesmanship. These vampires were sheep led to slaughter, a distraction. She pushed the bodies aside and continued down the dark passage. Small electric sconces lit the way, casting long, weird shadows over the ramped passageway. The electric lights were installed right next to older candle sconces, which were left covered with ancient dripped wax. Again she smiled to herself. They had tapped into the easy, free electrical source above them. She expected more goons as she descended, but none appeared. Must be saving them for the big finale, she thought. A minute later she was at the bottom of the winding tunnel, staring at a red metal door. It was unlocked. She knew whoever headed this clan would prove to be a vain, arrogant man, like most vampires; thinking himself above the rest, thinking humanity incapable of retaliation. But Hannah knew otherwise. She had them on the run. And even though she was only semihuman, she counted herself among the mortals. She knew this vanity and arrogance would prove their undoing. She kicked the door open. The other side was pitch. “Welcome, Hannah,” came Abraham’s voice from the dark. Slowly, she edged into the room. From the echoing sound of the voice, it was cavernous, and pitched her into a brief moment of bewilderment. “It is a difficult room to get used to,” Abraham continued, a fleck of German still haunting his voice. “I will give you a moment.” “I don’t need a moment,” she replied and drew a second blade from her pack. “A moment means a moment longer with you in the world. I’d rather not wait.” Abraham chuckled and it bounced all around her. “Just like your mother; strong-willed, defiant. It was a shame I had to destroy her…” Hannah flinched. “This all

Page 82 Vampire City ? From Page 80 ends tonight.” “Indeed it does,” Abraham answered and the room suddenly filled with bright light. “For one, or all of us.” Hannah was blind, but in the first instant of light made out the multiple figures approaching her. She twirled, swung, danced a deadly ballet as sparks shot through her eyes. Not all of her blows landed, but enough to know she was dealing death. “Enough!” Abraham cried and the fluttering movement around her ceased. Then her eyes were well-enough adjusted to make out the room; it was indeed a cavern, carved out of the rock and sand of the Point. It was obvious many years of hard work went into it. The walls and supporting beams were plain at first sight, but a lingering look revealed ornate carvings, similar to the ones on the sheath of Hannah’s blade. “Familiar, no?” Abraham said. “Yes,” Hannah said, and finally laid eyes upon him. He looked like his pictures, and the pictures were not flattering. An inkling of the man he was once was still existed, but he had been hollowed out, body and soul. This was not the first vampire she had seen; the shock of their sallow complexion and sagging skin

Thursday, July 14, 2011 His entire body was covered in engorged ticks. Hannah was speechless. The vampires surrounded him like a pack of hungry dogs. had long since worn off for her. But this was the first vampire she had ever seen that was her father. She wept. “It is okay, my dear. It is to be expected. Every girl needs her daddy.” She stopped weeping, her eyes now full of fury. Her grieving was done. “Where is he?” she asked. “We shall get right to it then? Fine. Your lover is here.” “He’s not…” she started to protest, but as they wheeled him out on the cart she realized that she was indeed in love with him. “Q…” she gasped. He couldn’t answer. His mouth, face, his entire body was covered in engorged ticks. Hannah was speechless. The remaining vampires surrounded him like hungry dogs. They pulled the bugs off him and popped them in their mouths like black and gray jelly beans. Each time the did a guttural moan came from his throat. He was not conscious, just awake enough to feel the pain. Abraham said, “I’m afraid, for you, that

he will not last the hour. We have been… indulging ourselves a bit, I’m afraid. Irish blood is the sweetest, after all.” Hannah sheathed her blades. She watched in silent horror as the beasts continued to pull the bugs off of BQ, each one trailing behind it chuck of flesh or string of blood. She was horrified, but focused. “You were right my dear, it ends tonight. And I’m afraid it is you that will be ending.” She sensed movement behind and around her. “It is a shame that we cannot work together, father and daughter. We could do wonderful things. And I miss you so.” More figures crowded behind her, Abraham was obviously making his big play now. Good. “But you refuse to listen to reason, so…” Abraham clicked a device in his hand and the lights went out. All was blackness. The next bit happened very quickly, but very slowly for Hannah. The figures around her lunged to the center of the room where she stood. The creatures feeding off of BQ remained where they were, unwilling to leave the feast. Hannah rolled forward and removed her pack. She unzipped it and grabbed two holy water grenades, like the one

Vampire City ? From Page 82 she’d used at the Beach Theater. She flipped the pins off with her thumbs and sent one towards BQ and the other into the crowd of massing vampires. The grenades exploded, filling the room with orange light. Then it was silent. The lights came back on. The room was full of the ash and the limbs of disintegrated vampires. BQ kept moaning. “You are…” Abraham said slowly, “quite good at this. We shall meet again.” And up he rose into a ventilation shaft. “No, we won’t,” she said to herself and flew across the room. BQ moaned. Her heart ached, but there was nothing she could do at the moment. Up the passage she went, into the lobby. A skittering from above. She took the lighthouse steps three at a time, and there he was, perched on the railing, ready to make his escape. He saw her and turned in the moonlight. “Hannah…” A dagger thunked into his abdomen. “Hannah, you cannot win.” Another dagger hit his thigh. “Your aim is terrible.” “I hit exactly what I aimed for,” she replied. “So what do we do now, Hannah? A fight to the death?” “Something like that. But first you need to know something,” she jammed a gear handle and the light tower, which had been cycling lazily, stopped; it shone directly on Abraham. “Hannah, if your big plan was to kill me with light powered from a solar battery, you are about to find out this was a terrible mistake.” She thought of the powered lights in the tunnel below. “This light shines through a UV filter. Solar light contains high levels of solar radiation. It has to be watered down for those that work with it daily, like the people at this lighthouse.” This got Abraham’s attention. Hannah pulled a glass tube from the back of the light. “I,” she said and smashed the glass on the floor, “have just removed that filter. You have

three seconds to live.” A third dagger pinned his coat to the wall, trapping him. It took a moment for him to free himself, but that was enough. In a panic he ripped at the coat and threw his arms over his face, trapped in the light. The hairs on his face and hands sizzled, but he was neither bursting into flame nor collapsing into dust. This light was only slightly stronger than filtered light. He smiled. Hannah’s plan had failed. “It looks as though you have overplayed your hand, Hannah,” he said, squinting. He could not see her in the brightness. “No,” she said from behind him and jammed the old blade through his back and into his heart. “I have played my hand perfectly. Goodbye father.” Stunned, he turned. He flailed at the blade but could not reach it. Panic swept over him, then resignation. “Good girl,” he said and collapsed to the ground. A blue mist rose off of him. In a few minutes there would be nothing left to mark his passing but a small puddle of brackish water. Less than 30 seconds later she was at BQ’s side. She could not tell if he recognized her; he was busy suffering. She pulled handfuls of the nasty insects from the hollow of his neck. “Here goes,” she said. She closed her eyes. Her incisors grew long and sharp. She sank them in his jugular, drew several draughts, and released. “Is that…” he whispered, “going to work?” “I don’t know, I’ve never tried it. I’ve never... loved anyone enough before.” He coughed a nearly imperceptible laugh. “I just know I want to be with you for a very long time.” “You…” he hissed, “just want… my body…” She sniffed away a tear. “That too.” For several long minutes nothing happened. Then a tick fell dead from his cheek.

My Grandpa Henry Sinsz July 27, 1918 - July 9, 2011

Dear Grandpa, I’m really going to miss you, but I’m glad that the suffering is over and you are now up in heaven with Grandma. I want to thank you for EVERYTHING you have done for me and my family. Thank you for building the house in Cape May the year I was born so that I’ve had the fortune of a beach house my entire life. Thank you for taking me fishing and crabbing as a little boy (and for letting me take you fishing when you got older). Thank you for taking me to the beach and boogie boarding. Thank you for taking me to putt-putt golf and to the arcade. Thank you for taking me bike riding and to parades and fireworks. Thank you for the unforgettable holidays we spent at Walther Gardens in Baltimore. But mostly, thank you for being the best grandpa ever! Most people should be so lucky to have had grandparents like me. It has been my pleasure to see you almost every day for the last 14 years and it was the ultimate honor to be holding your hand as you took your last few breaths. There’s no other place I’d rather have been. Please tell Grandma I said hello, I miss her dearly, and I’ll see you both in heaven when my times comes. I miss you already Grandpa. Your loving grandson, Jason I’d also like to thank my Aunt Babe for the amazing love and care she has given my grandpa over the last year after my grammy passed. And I’d also like to thank the wonderful staff of Holy Redeemer for their help, especially Mike and Theresa.

Activity Of The Week


A weekly column by Catherine Dugan. This week: Take a Ghost Tour

ooking for a little shiver on a hot summer night? Take the Ghosts of Cape May trolley tour! July is the perfect time to take your kids on a ghost tour. The summer solstice has passed, but the days are still long, so you start your tour while it is light. Though it might be dark by the time you finish, the kids will know by then that the ghost tour involves more giggles than screams. A few minutes with the actor/tour guide will set them at ease, and they will be shouting out “3am!” whenever the guide asks the appropriate question. Adults need not fear that the ride is geared for children. The stories, based on information provided by the Ghost Writer, Craig McManus, include a little bit of history, a little bit of tragedy and a lot of wit. The guides tend to be in tune with the audience, and the talk isn’t gruesome. Like all of MAC’s trolley tours, the Ghost Tour also offers a charming way to see Cape May. The trolley takes you through the twists and turns of the historic district as dusk falls. Wave to the people passing in horse-drawn carriages.

Watch the porches of Victorian homes come to life in the candlelight. Enjoy the distant rumble of the surf mixed with the music from the restaurants you pass. The ride alone is worth it. People who believe they have encountered ghosts can be very eager to tell their stories, and the chatter of the other riders

may be more frightening than the scripted tour. Although our guide deftly deflected her volunteer “helper,” some participants may be harder to ignore. If you have a child who is particularly impressionable, consider the Children’s Trolley Tour, which has nothing to do with ghosts and is designed for the 5- to 10-year old set. “Ghosts of Cape May” is a 30-minute ride. The tour begins at the Washington Street Mall Information Booth. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for children (ages 3-12). Buy your tickets in advance or risk being left on the sidewalk. Trolley tours are sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (MAC), a non-profit organization that promotes the restoration, interpretation and cultural enrichment of greater Cape May. Call ahead (609-884-5404 or 800-275-4278) for information on wheelchair-accessible tours. Put a little chill into your July with the Ghosts of Cape May trolley tour. And, if you encounter something chilling in your charming bed-and-breakfast, don’t be surprised if your clock tells you it’s 3am. Next week: Happy Hour with a Twist

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

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


Frankie is a very handsome boy who is very social, but he is going to need lots of training. He’ll require someone knowledgeable with a firm hand for strong dogs to give him the guidance he needs. He can be very playful but he is rough when he does play so he will have to go to a home without cats, dogs or kids. Otherwise he really is a good boy who just needs someone willing to train him. Adoption fee is $95.



Mitchell is a handsome one-yearold boy waiting for the perfect home. He did extremely well on his temperment test. He came from a home with kids and does well with them but he can play a little rough now and then. Otherwise he is a good overall dog who just needs a firm hand and some training. If you think Mitchell may be a fit for your lifestyle, stop in and meet him today. Adoption fee is $95.

Foxxy is a sweet yet reserved sevenyear-old female Shepherd mix who will need a quiet, adult home. She was an outside dog so she will need some training but with patience we think she will come around. During her temperment test Foxxy showed no interest in toys or rawhides and did well on her test. All she needs now is a second chance with an owner who will give her the affection she deserves. Adoption fee is $35.

Sparky will talk to you all day. Come anywhere near his cage and he runs right up, meowing a mile a minute. We’re guessing he’s saying something like, “Hey! Pick me!

Erika and her sister Evelyn are seven-year-old gals who have been at the shelter since August They’re sweet cats who like to be petted and picked up. Both of these girls also do just fine with cats, dogs and kids. All thats needed now is someone to give Erika and Evelyn a second chance. Adoption fee is $20.

Head to toe summer beauty....


Tulip is a very sweet gal who would be a perfect match for an older person. She’s calm, loving and just loves to curl up on one’s lap for a snooze. If an affectionate companion is what you’re looking for to brighten up your day come meet Tulip and see if you can give her a forever home. She’ll make you happy you did! Adoption fee $35.

Bird Droppings


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

he morning bird walk was over. Just as they’d arrived... as singles, couples, trios and families... the patrons headed back to their cars. There was beach time to look forward to and breakfast to enjoy. Me? I lingered in the parking lot of The Nature Conservancy preserve (the Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge, also known to the locals as simply “The Meadows”) just off Sunset Boulevard. I’d already had breakfast and it was going to be a writing day, not a beach day, for me. The reason I lingered was not to shirk, but to savor. Savor what? My recent encounter with the latest and greatest people all drawn from that slice of the human pie who like birds and nature. Note I did not say “bird watchers” or “birders.” In fact and truth, only about half of the group (which numbered just over 20) fit these labels. The other half of the group were just visitors to Cape May who figured they’d spice up their visit by

going on a bird walk. Two hours. One mile. Easy walking. Over 60 species of birds. 60 species. Uh huh. Cape May is a bird-rich place. And “The Meadows” is one of its ecological gems. What’s more, summer is absolute prime time for bird viewing pleasure.

There are lots of breeding birds around, including stately herons and egrets; assorted terns; a variety of song birds (including one stunning Blue Grosbeak) and maybe best of all, from now until the end of November, Cape May will be ground zero for millions of migrating birds. Yes, millions. This past Monday, the group tallied about fifty migrating shorebirds (straight from the Arctic!) as well as Bank Swallow, Orchard Oriole, and two really spiffy Bobolink! It doesn’t matter whether you can identify these species or not. That’s what the field trip leaders are for. Patrons need only savor them. But it wasn’t the birds I was thinking about. Not even a Roseate Tern spotted by co-leader Chuck Slugg and confirmed by Karl Lukens. Roseate Tern is so slender and elegant, it turns Common and Forster’s Terns to clay.

Bird Droppings ? From Page 113


I was thinking about the people. The eager, eyes-open-to-wonder people who show up on CMBO morning trips. This morning there was a gentleman from Denmark. Left the wife and kids sleeping in the condo. Would be back in time for breakfast. Then there was the couple from Ohio. They really, really wanted to see a Lesser Black-backed Gull. Did, too. A grandmom and granddaughter duo down from Philadelphia. It was the granddaughter's first birding experience. She took to it like a bird to f light. And the three friends, just here for the weekend from New York City, wanting to do something new. How could I tell they were neat people, the kind of people you like to be around? It was the smiles. Smiles as they looked through the spotting scopes and got in-your-face looks at Least Tern chicks and Blue Grosbeak. Ever seen a male Blue Grosbeak? Blue onto purple with rust-colored chevrons emblazoned on each wing. A designer bird if ever their was one. And the smiles got wider and more

frequent as the walk went on. By the time everyone reached the parking lot, they were permanent fixtures on every face. Yep. Nothing quite like a morning going one-on-one with the natural world to bring out the best in people. And the smiles, of course. So what kind of a day are you having? Need a smile? I know where you can go to find one (not to mention about 60 species of birds). Want to start your morning off with a smile? Join Pete Dunne from the Cape May Bird Observatory on a field trip any Monday morning beginning at 7:30am in The Nature Conservancy parking lot on Sunset Boulevard. Or you can stop by the Cape May Bird Observatory and ask any of the staff or volunteers what walks are happening throughout the week. They’ll be glad to show you and you’ll see why the Cape May Bird Observatory is THE place to come for all your nature needs. The CMBO located at 701 East Lake Drive overlooking Lake Lily in Cape May Point (609-884-2736). It is open every day from 9:30am to 4:30pm except on Tuesdays throughout July and August. While you're there, check out the view of the lake from the wide selection of

scopes and binoculars, pick up a free map and schedule of daily walks and programs for the season, take a look at the sighting sheets to check what's being seen, scan the bookshelves or pick up a bargain from the used and vintage books section, look at some of the wonderful Charley Harper merchandise (including a terrific lithograph done just for the Cape May Bird Observatory), or just browse around. Sit outside on our garden benches and enjoy the birds at the feeders and the view of Lake Lily. And if you can’t make it in person, it's easy to visit us online – www. – 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. Pete Dunne uses his talents and energy to make the natural world real for others. Author of several books on and about nature (all available at the CMBO) he weaves information, insight and even fantasy into a net that captures minds and hearts. He has written for virtually every birding publication and for The New York Times.

The Dating Column


Stella Dixon's take on romance on Old Cape Island

here are guys who are cool (ie – your high school football team). There are guys who are uncool (ie – your high school chess team). And then there are guys who simply play it cool (ie – the ones too busy working on their swagger to play football or chess). Playing it cool is an art, the dating equivalent of a just-rolled-out-of-bed hairstyle. It takes a lot of effort to appear as though you’re putting in no effort at all. In fact, the play-itcool (or PIC), guy often sports this very hairdo, which he styles with $75 worth of product. He’s got just a little scruff on his face and, though it may not look like it, he paid extra for the holes in that sweatshirt. The main goal of the PIC guy is to get a girl’s attention by giving her as little as possible. Or, if he does give her attention, it’s the negative sort. My friends call it “mirting,” or mean flirting, and it’s a common practice on the child’s playground. Push a girl off the slide and it means you like her. Pull her pigtails and you’ve got it bad. Among adults, the mirting is more subtle, but it still happens. A guy I went out with last week said, “Woah, Fatty,” when

he saw me reaching for a second slice of pepperoni pizza. He’s practically in love with me. The second goal of the PIC guy is to communicate with a girl by communicating as little as possible. He does not say hello, at least not verbally. Instead, he’ll lift his chin – an almost nod. He does his best not to smile. Ideally, he’ll be leaning against something – a wall or fence, perhaps – one hand in his pocket and one thumb hooked through his belt loop. The PIC guy never asks a lady to go

NAS Wildwood Aviation Museum would like to thank the following sponsors:

out, because his only plan is to not appear as though he’s planned ahead. Instead, he’ll nonchalantly ask her to stay in for a low-key night of watching movies, “or whatever,” and being sure to mention that all his other plans fell through. Before his girl gets there, the PIC guy will straighten up, but not too much. He’ll leave his free weights strewn across the floor, so she has to step over them, and he’ll frame a picture of himself with three bombshell women, never mind that they’re his cousins. During the movie, he’ll comment on how hot Jessica Alba is, even if he’s having trouble keeping his eyes off his own date. It’s true that girls will fall for the PIC guy. I’ve become interested in men simply because they seemed so disinterested in me. It’s backwards, I know. But dating, kind of like life in general, can be backwards. The chess players surpass the football players in coolness once high school ends. The good-on-paper guy turns out to be a jerk, and vice versa. And sometimes, it takes chasing after a PIC guy to show you that playing it cool ain’t so hot after all.

The Movie Column


Tom Sims, Director of the Cape May Film Festival, reviews "Page One" and "Horrible Bosses"

ll right all you New York Times readers, this one's for you. Whether you like reading the newspaper or not, whether you like The New York Times or not, you have to admit that it is one of – if not the – leading source of news information in the world. Sure, go ahead and log on to an online news provider if you want, but next time really study to see how many of those websites do first-hand news reporting versus simply recapping something from another news source. Then count the other news sources. Guaranteed at least one of them is from The New York Times. Page One is a new documentary about The New York Times and how it manages to stay in business (somewhat tenuously it would seem) in an electronic age. The film follows reporter David Carr, who’s focus at the paper is media trends. Carr is as interesting a character as any film could hope for, and his antics tell the story. While this film has the blessing of the Times (i.e., most disparaging remarks about the paper are followed by a rebuttal that trumps the criticism), the film does still manage to get its

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis conspire to murder their employers in "Horrible Bosses." point across with compelling drive and vigor. High marks for the film and for media outlets that generate their own information (like the one you’re holding right now) and don’t just float on sources that originate the news upstream. Horrible Bosses is a new film with Jason

Is paying the electric bill painful? It doesn’t have to be.

Bateman and a host of other stars. Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell portray three of today’s worst bosses. Bateman and his two friends, played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Charlie Day and SNL’s Jason Sudeikis, work for these bosses separately and ultimately decide their lives would be better if these supervisors from hell were dead. The cast saves this film with appearances from Donald Sutherland and Jamie Foxx as well. But don’t pick apart the premise – you’ll only criticize it for being recycled (regurgitated) from classics like Strangers on a Train (1951) and its spawn, Throw Momma from the Train (1987). Avoid any in-depth study of character, storyline, plot and reason in Horrible Bosses. Maybe what I’m saying is if you’re in it for the laughs, Horrible Bosses delivers. You might want to catch this one in theaters to get that mob mentality when it comes to getting those laughs. This film is more a reflection of today’s troubled job market rather than a commentary on it, and the mindless adolescent humor is well employed.

The Real Estate Column


Chris Bezaire on the latest trends and sales on the island

E are finally in the swing of summer and except for a glitch with the fireworks on July 4th, it seems to be a banner year. I was driving out of town on July 3 and the traffic was backed up all the way to the light in front of Tranquility coming into town. I have not seen traffic like that since I was a kid. It shows that activity has picked up, as do the nine transactions we had in the last two weeks. We'll start in Cape May Point, where 309 Stites was co-listed by the fatherson duo of Brian and Gregg Giancola of Coldwell Banker Sol Needles and Barry Bruno of Chris Clemans SIR. It was sold by Ellie O'Donogue of Jersey Cape Realty for $865,000. Now we move to West Cape May where... Wait, there were no sales in West Cape May. We'll put you first next week! The last eight transactions took place in Cape May. We start with 1141 Delaware Avenue which was listed by Jim Zeitler of Jersey Cape Realty and sold by

Ken Hutchinson of Coastline Realty for $605,000. Next is 458 West Perry, listed by the Coastal Marketing Group comprised of Brian Groetsch and Chris Rothwell of Century 21 GilMartin and sold by Jim “I dabble in a bit of everything” Ridgeway of Wilsey Real Estate for $495,000. Next we have 1127 Indiana Avenue, which was listed by a few realtors who hail from the Villas and sold by Brian and Gregg Giancola of Coldwell Banker Sol Needles for $440,000. Speaking of the Giancolas, they also sold 1360A Wisconsin Avenue which was listed by Suzanne Smigo of Homestead

Real Estate and sold for $337,500. We will mention one more sale, and that is 1350A Virginia which was listed by Barry Bruno of Chris Clemans SIR and sold by Carol Anderson of Coastline Realty for $293,000. Always nice to see those sub$300,000 numbers! Be on the lookout for my first Vacation and Second Home Buyers Seminar at the end of July.
