You're Only as Good as Your Team

From the Editor


our only as good as your team," the high school lacrosse coach reminded us daily. He went on to explain that no matter how good you are, you are nothing without your team. Your team will make or break you. You have to work together, build each other up and capitalize on your strengths. Together you can be great. That was 1983. Those words stuck with me because they apply off the field as well. Bob and I have so much gratitude for the amazing group of individuals that come together to form the Shore Local Team. From the first core group of four people who sat nervously over breakfast creating a plan just 19 months ago, to the most recent additions of topnotch columnists such as Harry Hurley and Nancy Adler. Every step of the way, we have been blessed with talented and

creative writers joining the Shore Local Team. Jeff Whitaker brings a wealth of communications expertise, Marci Lutsky of Vegging at the Shore and Somers Point poet laureate and founder of The Elegant Root, Maria Provenzano, along with her now-husband Nick Leonetti, a talented writer on a wide range of topics. Maria and Nick were married this past Saturday and we congratulate them. We are proud to call them a part of the Shore Local Team. Chuck Eberson was there at that breakfast meeting months ago when it all began, and has been an integral part of Shore Local ever since. He writes the

Senior Moments column and has a large fan base, especially with the 55 and over readers. Chuck has over 25 years of experience in all facets of the news industry. This summer he came out of retirement to handle advertising sales along with his column. Robin Minichino, joined our team in August reuniting Bob, Chuck and Robin, in advertising sales. The three of them have decades of experience working together for the area’s daily and weekly newspapers. Shore Local couldn't have dreamt of a better sales team. Mari Dattolo and Seth Grossman are both talented writers who have contributed in the past and recently joined Shore Local as regular columnists. Becky Jewell, Jacqueline D'Angelo,

Sean Fawcett and Meghan Mangel are regular contributors who add so much. Steffen Klenk began as an intern but quickly became an employee, and is now a huge part of the Shore Local Team. Steffen covers many events and has proven himself to be excellent with both a camera and a pen. Shore Local has also been blessed by outstanding photographers who allow us to print their photos both on the cover and inside the magazine. Donald B. Kravitz has contributed so much and we will forever be grateful for his contributions. This issue and in upcoming issues, Patty Hutton has contributed her talents as a high school sports photographer. Look for "Game Faces" in this issue featuring Patty's work. Lastly, the one who is the glue that binds us all together, Maddy Vitale, the Managing Editor. She is the orchestrator and kicks into high gear the days just prior to publication or what we refer to as "deadline." She collects, revises, formats and corresponds with graphic designers often until two in the morning prior to officially "going to print." She irons out the 10,000 details that need to be taken care of and we would be lost without her. Bob and I also have a deep gratitude for you, the reader. Thank you for picking up this issue of Shore Local, inviting it into your homes. We hope you enjoy it and find it uplifting and informational.

Peace & Love, Cindy

EHT Dog Park Has its' Day


rowds gathered on this warm Saturday, Oct. 7th. There were at least 40 dogs, of all breeds and sizes, each accompanied by an owner. Vendors lined the entranceway selling gourmet treat-treats and puppy scoop ice-cream. There were registration tables and opportunities to purchase T-shirts, bracelets and more to show support for this brand new dog park in Egg Harbor Township. This day was long awaited, eight years to be exact. Donna Burns, founder and visionary of the dog park, addressed the crowd just prior to cutting the ribbon to officially open the Egg Harbor Township Dog park. She described her eight-year journey to get to this moment. Meetings with the mayor, forming a nonprofit organization, acquiring the land, fundraising and installing water lines were just some of the steps and hurdles that needed to be jumped in order to manifest her dream of a dog park in her hometown. She thanked her husband and 12 committee members. Over the many

Hometown Heroes: Carolyn and Tom Jewell By Lindsay Kirkland


akota is well known in the Ventnor community. He is always out and about frequenting beach concerts, festivals, restaurants and more. He is adorable, friendly, and has the sweetest eyes. Lakota is a 13-week-old seeing eye puppy. When Carolyn and Tom Jewell retired four years ago, they decided to move from their home in Indiana to Ventnor to be near their son, daughter-in- law and two grandsons. They also decided to take on a new job raising seeing eye puppies. It is the Jewells’ job and responsibility to socialize Lakota and give him as many experiences out in public as possible. Lakota is their second seeing eye puppy and in just a few weeks he will return to The Seeing Eye headquarters on 60 acres in Morristown. Once there, Lakota will be given a rigorous physical exam and upon passing, he will be matched up with a handler. The handler will teach the young dog everything he needs to know to assist a visually

The Seeing Eye's mission has remained the same for 75 years: To enhance the independence, dignity and self-confidence of people who are blind, through the use of specially trained seeing eye dogs.

By Mari D. Dattolo


eventeen years ago, some “visionary spirits” gathered together as members of the Township of Hamilton’s Historical Society and brainstormed on how they could share the history of our county’s seat with the public. Hearing about a candlelight walking tour in a historic Pennsylvania hamlet, President Joan Cradock and Dottie Kinsey realized the same concept could be an enticing event to host in Atlantic County. After all, there had been no shortage of eerie sightings or paranormal activity in the historic district of Mays Landing. The idea caught on and for dozens of families, has grown into an annual Halloween tradition. With a rich history dating back to the 1750s, Mays Landing is a great place to begin a haunted tour. Many of

She is believed to be either the mother of a murder victim, or the mother of the convicted murderer in the crime, William O’Mara, who had been sentenced in November of 1891. Both women were said to have wept, through the entire trial. Other paranormal reports include “someone” seeming to ride the empty elevator late into the night; lights going on and off and footsteps heard in empty courtrooms, documented by frightened witnesses. New to the Ghost Walk this year is the unveiling of Mays Landing’s

when trains were the major mode of transportation into the new resort of Atlantic City. The first railroad came to Mays Landing and the line at Egg Harbor City in the 1870s. In August of 1880, 1400 members of the St. Ann Literary Society of Philadelphia, chartered two trains to Atlantic City for a day on the beach. On the return trip, as the first train reached Mays Landing, the second train carelessly hit the back of the first train. The rear of the train was on the peninsula leading to the bridge over the Egg Harbor River when it was struck by the engine of the second section. The impact caused the boiler to explode with massive amounts of boiling

Girls Night Out – Wednesday, Oct. 18th Most women probably don’t associate mammograms with fun, but AMI’s Girls Night Out on Tuesday, October 18th may change all that. Held in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Girls Night Out incorporates things women love: pampering, food and drink, and spending quality time with friends. The event will take place Wednesday, from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 18 at AMI’s Galloway office, located at 44. E. Jimmie Leeds Road. It will include screening mammograms, free mini chair massages and free nail polish change, light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with

AMI’s female physicians, technologists and staff. All attendees will be entered in a drawing to win a free spa treatment. Space is limited for the free massages and nail polish change, both of which are available on a first come, first served basis. Mammography screenings will be available by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call 609- 677-XRAY (9729). “This event represents a ‘best of both worlds’ opportunity for women,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, head of women’s imaging at AMI. “It promises to be a fun and enjoyable night out, while at the same time empowering women to take charge of their body and their health.” To RSVP for the event, please call 609568-9153.

Ways to Save on Pet Care

wning a pet comes with a lot of benefits - but caring for a pet can also have an unwelcome impact on your budget. According to the ASPCA, owning a dog or cat can cost up to $1,000 in the first year, and many people end up spending much more. The good news is, you can cut your pet care expenses without compromising your pet's health and wellbeing. Here are a few tips to save money on pet care:

pet lovers; or you could try good old-fashioned advertising. Choose high-quality pet products that give you more value for your money. Reaching for the cheapest product can feel like a thrifty move, but you may be surprised by the impact "cheap" products can have on your budget. For example, cheaper clay

Don't skip the vet. If you're trying to save money, it can be tempting to cut back on veterinary visits. But, according to Julie Ciarmella of the American Veterinary Medicine Association, "an investment in preventive healthc a re c a n re d u ce your long-term pet healthcare costs." Why? Because regular check-ups can prevent expensive complications down the road. Get by with a little help from your friends. Dog-walking, pet-sitting and kennel services can be one of the most expensive aspects of owning a pet. You can save money by taking the "you scratch my dog's back, I'll scratch your cat's chin" approach and tapping into a network of other pet owners in your area. Neighborhood dog parks are great places to meet like-minded

cat litter needs to be changed more often - so cat owners go through bag after bag. Use higher quality litter. You'll use less of it and save money in the long run. In the end, remember that what your pet needs most is love. Keep things simple and invest in high-value products where it matters, and you'll be on your way to a pet-care budget that works for you.

↘Continued from 8 water and steam, hurling passengers into the river. Joseph Bartlett was a conductor on the Egg Harbor City line who rushed to the scene of the wreck to offer assistance. Casualties included 25 deaths and dozens of severely injured passengers. The townspeople of Mays Landing opened their homes and hotels to take in the injured until a special train could be arranged to take them to the nearest hospital in Camden, New Jersey. Today, people claim to occasionally hear a train whistle and the screams of a female passenger, only known as “Mary.” Mays Landing’s most notable treasure, designed in second Empire style, is the Victorian mansion, the Abbott House. Built by the native lawyer of the town, Joseph E.P. Abbott and his wife Adeline in the 1860s, overnight guests may come across more than just Belgium chocolates on their pillows! Two additional “guests” have taken up permanent residency, apparently on the third floor. Images have been photographed in windows and in the decorative cupola adorning the rooftop. Their presence on the property has been documented by the South Jersey Ghost Research Organization, practicing psychic mediums and countless witnesses.

Although no one is reported to know their background, records indicate a young man in his teens and a young girl have been reported to bounce balls, throw books off of bookshelves and appear as shadowy figures in windows and mirrors. Findings from the paranormal investigation, include 28 events on video; 46 positive images on film and four electronic voice phenomena (EVP), indicating that there is in fact - ghostly activity! Join the Township of Hamilton Historical Society for the 17th Annual Ghost Walk, Friday, Oct. 20th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mays Landing Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall This article is in memory of Dottie Kinsey, who passed away this year. She was the founder of the Historical Society & Museum and created the ghost walk. Mari isn't one to give into too much down time. A diagnosis in 2011 of Parkinson's Disease redirected her career as a Director of Marketing and Events in Atlantic City to doing her own events for other markets. She is also active with the Children's Museum and the Historical Museum. Her hobbies include both paranormal research and creative writing.

f you have children in preschool or grade school, you may receive an invitation to be a secret reader in your child’s classroom. This is a great way to get involved in the school, get an insider view of the classroom, and show your child that you want to be involved in their education. Kids love seeing mom, dad or an older sibling come into the classroom. So, you accepted that invitation to be a secret reader and now the question is, what book should you read? If your child loves cooking or food, here are some of our favorites that the other children will enjoy listening to. “Sophie’s Squash” by Pat Zietlow Miller. In this story a young girl named Sophie visits the farmers market with her parents and buys a squash. When she gets home, she takes care of it like a pet. When the squash starts to rot, she becomes sad until she plants it in the ground and sees it produce more squash. My kids loved this story since we frequent the farmers market and

It’s not until someone suggests that he put ketchup on his food that he starts to enjoy food. This adorable rhyming story will make the kids laugh and make you feel better that you don’t have the only picky eater in the world! “The Little Red Hen” by Mary Finch.

By Charles P. Eberson


Senior’s Observations, Opinions and Rantings I lived in the house with the lions for over 50 years. At least that is how our home in Margate was known. When we would give directions to company we were expecting, we would give the street, house number and always end with “the house with the lions.” Even when we would order subs or pizza to be delivered, we would give the address and the restaurant would say “Oh, the house with the lions.” There were four large solid concrete lions on the property. One lion lying down on each end of the lot and two sitting on their haunches about four feet tall on the porch like sentinels guarding the entrance. My brother and I would sit astride them like horses, put berries where their eyes should be, put hats on them and generally, included them in our family. Time moved on, our parents passed and we inherited the property. We decided to rent the house and a family with two young girls moved in. When I would go by the house, I would see that they had decorated the lions with necklaces,

The only way to extricate myself from this unpleasantness was to sell the property, which we did.

Fall is Peak Season for Fun By Maddy Vitale


o, you’re thinking about taking a trip to see the lovely fall foliage, leaves turning from green to vibrant yellow, red and orange. For those along the coast, the perfect time is nearing the end of this month. From the many parks in Atlantic and Cape May counties for visitors and residents to enjoy for free, the beauty is right here in our own backyard. And if the technicolor landscapes aren’t all you seek, there’s plenty more to do from the Mainland to the Jersey Shore, with paddling, hiking, camping, birdwatching and winetasting - just some of the activities to enjoy. Whether it be a day trip or a staycation, one thing is certain; you won’t be bored and maybe even gain a new appreciation for all the wonderful nature we have around us.


“The great thing about the fall at the shore is binoculars replace bikinis and cameras are more important than beach chairs,” said Deborah Bass, deputy director of public relations at Cape May County Department of Tourism. “It is such a beautiful time of year. The beaches are available for lovely walks and the weather is still great.” Cape May Point State Park, Cape May National Wildlife Refuge and the Cape May Zoo are all big attractions year-round. Cape May County is well known for its birding and considered as one of the top three birding “hot

Halloween Fun for Children with Food Allergies

By Marci Lutsky


aving a child with food allergies can be stressful. But even more so at Halloween. Candy is being handed out left and right and this can be extremely dangerous for a child with food allergies. No matter what the allergy is, parents need to be extra vigilant during this time of year. One small bite of something that your child is allergic to can send him or her into anaphylactic shock. Luckily, there is a great event coming up on Oct. 28th called Addy’s Trunk or Treat that parents of kids with food allergies can be assured, is a safe environment. This event is open to everyone in the community, not just those with food allergies. Shara Gadomski, owner of Happy Heart Corner yoga, art and cooking studio in Northfield, created this event last year in response to her daughter Addy’s peanut and sesame allergies. She wanted children to be able to partake in the fun of Halloween without possibly eating foods that could pose a health threat. Children come in costume and walk around to collect non-food treats from businesses, organizations and people handing out treats from the trunks of their cars. This year Gadomski will be holding

the event from 12-3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28th in the parking lot of the Linwood Exchange at 2110 New Road. If your child has food allergies and you do plan to go trick or treating, it is recommended that you look for houses with a teal pumpkin. The teal pumpkin project was started by the Food Allergy

playing cards, stickers and bouncy balls. These are all things that kids will enjoy. Even though I don’t have a child with food allergies, I still love the concept of non-food treats being handed out at Halloween. I feel like the candy season lasts several months. In early October there is a tradition in my neighborhood where the houses get “booed.” A giant ghost gets put on your door and a basket of treats is left on your doorstep. This happened to us last week, which kicked off daily requests to eat a piece

TALENT By Maddy Vitale

EHT Boy Whips Up Success in Motocross


GG HARBOR TOWNSHIP - Canyon Richards is a boy of few words when it comes to his extreme talent in Amateur Motocross. At just 9 years old, he has won so many trophies and awards he actually gives them away. He doesn’t brag about his accomplishments, he just says he loves to ride. And he is somewhat matterof-fact about his daredevil stunts, which include soaring through the air at a speed of about 65 mph over a jump, catapulting him and his bike more than 12 feet up, then turning the bike sideways in a “whip.” “It feels better than straight air,” Canyon said recently of his favorite

He could turn his whole bike sideways.” But everyone, even the best, has to start somewhere. For Canyon, it was when he was 2 years old, riding a bicycle in his yard.

When Your Tank Runs Low

in ourselves. We think we can make it on what we’ve learned or poured into our lives already. There’s no need to keep growing. Or maybe we just aren’t aware of what we don’t know. And finally, just like waiting for the cheaper gas prices, we aren’t persuaded we need to make the investment in ourselves. We’ll wait. So here is my challenge to you. Don’t try to spend your life running on fumes. Don’t let the tank of life get so depleted that you take the chance of running out of gas. Develop a plan for growth. I want to share with you a really special event coming up that will literally catapult you in your leadership and your personal growth. On Oct 19th, I’m sponsoring Live2Lead, a half-day seminar designed to fill your tank. I’ve made arrangements with the beautiful Hidden Creek Country Club in Egg Harbor Township to host our event. We are offering two identical times. Either from 8:30 a.m. to noon with a continental breakfast included, or that evening from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. with light appetizers served. Follow this link for more information and tickets. I hope you can join me.

ave you ever been driving along, minding your own business and suddenly run out of gas? Chances are you’ve been there. I know I have. But there are steps you can take to avoid the empty tank. I’m constantly amazed at how we can draw real life parallels to everyday situations in which we find ourselves. Maybe you’re driving from one place to another and you get distracted. You are so focused on where you are going, you forget to check the gas gauge. But the reality is, the longer you drive, the more fuel you use. The more fuel you use, the more your supply is depleted. Or maybe your fuel gauge is broken or inaccurate. In other words, it’s hard to know how much fuel you have because the reality is, you’re guessing. Here’s another thing that happens. You know you need gas. You see a gas station, but then you look at the price and you remember that there is another place up the road where it’s couple of cents cheaper. So, you say, “I’ll just wait. Save a little. I can make it.” Here’s where the application comes in. We know we need to fuel our lives, our minds, and our hearts. But we get distracted and don’t take the time to invest

The Latest on Decision 2017 New Jersey Legislature: District 1

By HARRY HURLEY Political Columnist


crucial General Election is now less than one month away. In both Atlantic and Cape May Counties, the stakes couldn't be higher. In District 1, New Jersey state senator Jeff Van Drew appears to hold an insurmountable lead; most probably beyond 25 points. Van Drew is poised for the biggest mandate of his storied electoral public service career. Van Drew is almost too good to be true. He's the rare registered Democrat, whom Republicans and Independents also like. He's a former Dennis Township

Committeeman and Mayor; former Cape May County Freeholder (1994 to 1997); former New Jersey Assemblyman and current State Senator. Van Drew is also the former Dennis Township Fire Commissioner (1983 to 1986). Van Drew can even pull your tooth - literally - as a Dentist, whereby he has also served as president of the New Jersey Dental Society and a board expert of the New Jersey Board of Dentistry. Van Drew was largely responsible for the creation of the Atlantic Cape Community College, which had long been only Atlantic Community College. This finally gave Cape May fair representation at the region's Community College. Van Drew won his most recent re-election to the New Jersey state senate in 2013, winning 59.4 percent of the vote versus Susan Adelizzi Schmidt (39.2 percent). It was the highest percentage of the vote that Van Drew has earned. He won 55.7 percent in 2007 and 54.0 percent in 2011. Van Drew has sponsored meaningful legislation since 2002 in the New Jersey General Assembly: Prohibiting unwanted telemarketing telephone calls;

combating prescription drug errors; ban on self-service gas stations; predatory lending protections and the toughest legislation in state history regarding using the internet to prey upon children. It is very likely that Van Drew will win more than 60 percent of the vote in the Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017 General Election. In our very divided America of 2017, this is nearly impossible. District 1 Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak leads the way for the two open Assembly seats. His current Assemblyman Bruce Land is holding the second spot at this time. Both lead comfortably, (moderate single digits), but, not nearly by the significant margin held by Van Drew. Andrzejczak lost his leg; but not his heart in the Iraq War, while serving a Sergeant in the United States Army's 25th Infantry Division. Andrzejczak lost his left leg from a grenade explosion (2009); which earned him The Purple Heart and The Bronze Star Medal. Land served with the Army's 101st Airborne Division and was twice awarded The Bronze Star for his service during the Vietnam War. The Democratic ticket is poised to sweep. Andrzejczak has served in the New Jersey Legislature since March 21, 2013. Land has serves since Jan. 12, 2016. Van Drew, Andrzejczak and Land are nearly the team from "Central Casting." By any normal measurement, the 1st Legislative District should be a safe Republican District. Van Drew's consistent ability to win and have enormous coattails is electorally supernatural. All 40 State Senate seats are up for

election. Van Drew will face Republican Mary Gruccio and Green Party candidate, Anthony Parisi Sanchez, who is running under the slogan, "Cannot Be Bought." Gruccio is highly educated with multiple degrees, including her Ed.D. from Nova Southeastern University. She has previously served two terms as a Cumberland County Freeholder. Incumbents Andrzejczak and Land will face former Cumberland County Freeholder Director James Sauro and Robert Campbell. Sauro was first elected to the Freeholder Board in the election of 1999. He was elected, again many years later in 2012. Sauro has long-owned his own plumbing and heating business. Campbell. Campbell served as mayor of Downe Township, Cumberland County in 2012. He served honorably in the United States Army Reserve from 1966 to 1972. Realistically, Sauro is the only one of the three Republicans running, who has a chance to win this year. Two years ago, Sauro ran with then incumbent Republican Sam Fiocchi. Andrzejczak won with 20,231 votes. Land grabbed the second spot with 19,140. Fiocchi (16,818) and Sauro 16,395 votes finished third and fourth. This is a tougher year for Sauro because it is a gubernatorial election year, which many times benefits the Democratic candidates in New Jersey. Independent candidate Heather Gordon and Green Party candidate Mico Lucide are also running in the 2nd District race for the New Jersey General

and wins, often big. “It is a natural talent. I think it is from God,” Richards said. But a lot of hard work goes into it. Both have a personal trainer. “We do cross-fit five days a week,” Richards said. “Because Canyon is small, strength training is so important.” Canyon has had some injuries, but fortunately nothing serious. Richards said it is because the family is focused on safety and taught him that from an early age. He wears protective braces and a helmet. “We make sure he is safe from head to foot. From the time we took Canyon to Tykes on Bikes races we focused on how to use the controls and spent the first few years trying to make it safe,” Richards said. “We are really big on safety.” Canyon and his sister are homeschooled by retired teacher and mom Heidi Richards. This frees them up to go to races out of state and gives them a flexible schedule for riding. But if school work isn’t done, Richards said, it means no ride time. “If there is a bad day in school, then no riding,” Richards said. Usually the family practices in

Tips to Healthier, Tastier, Eating

By Nancy Adler


ood! We all love to look forward to an amazing meal. Not only is it a source of great pleasure; it also serves as a gateway to experiencing different cultures and is at the heart of many of our most cherished traditions. Perhaps most importantly, it serves as fuel for our bodies when we eat healthy. And here’s the good news: there are plenty of healthy food options to choose from that will please both your taste buds and your body. If you’re looking to improve what you eat, but aren’t willing to swear off your favorite foods altogether, you’re in luck. Think of changing your diet as a series of small, tasty, changes that can add up to better nutrition and better health. Consider this list a roadmap

to good nutrition. There are a lot of stopping points where you can explore new foods and add a bit of variety to your diet. The main thing is to embrace antioxidants - beta carotene and vitamins C, E, and selenium. They are great for your health and they’re found in a variety of foods, from blueberries and cranberries to pecans and even dark chocolate! For one thing, they’re good for your skin. For another, they’re known to help prevent cell damage which is associated with some cancers. So, make sure to load up your diet with berries, nuts, and even some dark chocolate too. Enough of all this bread taboo please. Fiber is your friend. Fruits and vegetables such as apples, bananas, broccoli, spinach and beets, beans and legumes, and whole grains are all great sources of fiber, so load up that salad with vegetables, and embrace the legume. Not only does fiber fill you up, it has also been shown to lower cholesterol, help regulate blood sugar levels, and may even help you control your

weight. There is even evidence that fiber can prevent some cancers like colon cancer. Anyone who knows me will hear somewhere in the back of their head me saying, "Did you drink your H2O today?" I always advise my clients not to fill up on high-calorie drinks such as sodas, juices, and sports drinks. Mother Nature created the only thirst-


quencher your body truly needs — water. It’s the perfect liquid because it keeps you hydrated and flushes toxins from your system. Need a little flavor? Try adding lemon, berries, or mint. Big question, "Nancy what are your thoughts on buying organic?" Organic is a major buzzword, but there’s more to it than marketing. To qualify as organic, food producers must meet US Department of Agriculture organic standards that require soil free of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and certain fertilizers. But organic produce can be expensive, so you’ll need to get the most bang for your organic buck. I try to shop at local farmers markets, buy produce in season, and focus my organic selections on the fruits and veggies that benefit most from organic farming. We have all heard that we should eat a rainbow of foods. Think red peppers, orange carrots, yellow lemons, green spinach, blueberries, and purple grapes. Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables from the color spectrum, exposes you to powerful bioflavonoids — which is just a fancy term for super-antioxidants that help support

strong cell formation and may help prevent disease. And who wants to eat ugly foods anyway? I am and always will be a huge proponent of supplementation - even when eating a balanced diet. Omega-3s and Omega-6s are at the top of the list. It’s time to ditch the idea that all fats are bad. Polyunsaturated fats (or omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as they are more commonly known) are essential fats that our bodies need, but cannot produce. These essential fats help build healthy cells and keep your brain and nervous system healthy. Omega-3s are found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna, while omega-6s can be found in nuts, seeds, and plant oils such as soybean oil.

Then there is sugar. While sugar isn’t inherently bad for you, the amount of sugar Americans consume every year has increased steadily. Sugar is a major culprit in the obesity epidemic and the rising rates of Type 2 diabetes. The problem is added sugars show up in in everything from bread to salad dressing to yogurt. So even though you may be avoiding dessert, your sugar intake could be high simply due to the sugars added to everyday foods. You would be surprised how much added sugars are in your foods let alone the obvious. No one needs sugar in their diet. Let’s face it. It tastes good. You want it. you don’t need it. try to stay in a guideline of four teaspoons only per

day. And that’s not just in your coffee. It's in everything not only the obvious. Flavored coffees, protein bars, Who doesn’t love a great French fry on a warm summer day strolling the boardwalk. Trans fats, also known as partially-hydrogenated oils, artificially created trans-fats destroy cells, raise your cholesterol levels, and increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. Trans-fats are commonly found in many processed foods such as cookies, pizza, French fries, and other fried foods or baked goods, so make sure you read nutrition labels. Try some crunchy Kale chips or baked sweet potato fries. I suggest a baked apple with cinnamon. Raw Fresh veggies dipped in a light dressing really will do the trick and stop those sugar cravings. Steaming is one of the best and easiest ways to cook veggies. Boiling vegetables results in a loss of vitamins and minerals as they are leached out into the water during the boiling process. Fresh vegetables that are steamed retain most of their nutrients. Nancy Adler is a certified nutritionist and practitioner in Linwood.

Fish Tales

by Robin Scott of Ray Scott's Dock

Harvey, Irma, Jose. Anglers have had enough cabin fever to start the spring flounder season now. They looked out their front doors, discovered windy but sunny conditions and went fishing. Those rewarded hugely

are the tog fisherman and blue claw crabbers. The crabs are fat at this point of the season readying for hibernation and at their peak. Plenty of fishing yet on the back of Absecon Island. Come join us!

Nate Acito of EHT boated this seven pound beauty of a tog on the first green crab he submerged. A very unusual occurrence!

Eleven year old Henry Seward of Longport loves challenging himself with how large of a fish he can catch on his three foot ice fishing rod!

John Navratil of EHT spends tons of time on the Margate Bay which occasionally yields him a good sized striped bass. This one is 17 pounds.
