Weather With Nor’easter Nick

By Nick Pittman

I

really dislike using the word "moist", but it's going to be in the forecast often throughout the next 10 days. Why? Pattern flip. I talked about it in the last article, and we are now well entrenched in it. We've got a broad area of high pressure over the Atlantic which will help funnel in the moisture from the south. Dew points, and therefore humidity, will be sky high for the foreseeable future. It's going to feel very sticky on your skin and just overall unpleasant.

In addition to the high pressure offshore dictating our wind direction, we've got a trough, or dip in the jet stream, parked over the region. This means that most of the next 7 day period will feature some shower or thunderstorm activity as we have an atmospheric conveyor belt of sorts on top of us. Looks like we may break away from it briefly on Saturday and Sunday, which would be fantastic news for Night in Venice! Temperatures look to be held at bay in the middle 80s, maybe a couple upper 80s, but the real hot weather will be nowhere in sight!

Waves of Caring Rolling In

Shawn helps Jeremy Ryan to catch some long rides in the surf.

From the Editor

very summer, hundreds of surfers come together for a great cause. The 15th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest was held last Friday, July 20th on the 7th Street beach in Ocean City. Each year it raises thousands of dollars to help those with Amyloidosis, a rare disease that took Chip Millers life too soon. Chip’s son, Lance Miller is president of the organization. It's a long anticipated and fun day for all. The “Groms” or young surfers run around between their heats smiling ear to ear. The pros come out to show their support including some of our area's biggest names in surfing like Dean Randazzo, Rob Kelly and Ben Gravy. They take photos and sign posters for the Groms who aspire to be just like them. It is also a day of serious competition. But midday, the competition is

The special needs surfers are fitted for life jackets and matched up with volunteers to take them surfing. Every one of these kids is met with a smile, high fives and a lot encouragement. And they all come out a winner regardless of their skill level. As the parent of a son with autism, one of our greatest concerns was that other kids, teens or adults

nesses, schools and organizations. The organizers of the Chip Miller Surf Fest and the pro surfers did such an as amazing job of leading the way with the special needs surfers. They jumped in, volunteering themselves and projecting such a positive vibe that you couldn't help but smile. Bob and I founded Heart of Surfing in 2014. It is nonprofit organization that offers free Surfing every Saturday for families with autism and other special needs. It was an idea, a hope that never would have been realized without the support of the surfing community and the dedication of a group of amazing volunteers that come out week after week. When you cast a stone into water, it creates ripples. We have seen the most beautiful ripples. Zach Ginet, pictured surfing with Rob Kelly, has gone on to become a member of his high school surf team. Something that never happened before. Our special needs surfers are included and supported more than we could have imagined. This issue of Shore Local continues to celebrate the people, places and events that make our corner of the world the best.

Peace & Love, Cindy

The AC Cocktail Challenge has been MADE

By Krystle J. Bailey

I

n a vibrant representation of Atlantic City’s energy, the 12 AC Cocktail Challenge finalists competed on Thursday, July 19th for the title of “AC’s Signature Cocktail.� The contest kicked off on June 11th with over 30 bars and restaurants charged with the mission to create what they thought could ultimately become the “drink of AC.� For five weeks, competitors rallied for votes as they poured drinks like the “City Beets� , “Jimmy’s Taff y�, and “The Blue Wave.� All drink entries were prepared with 48 Blocks Vodka, distilled and sold exclusively in Atlantic City. Patrons of each establishments were encouraged to cast their vote online for their favorite AC Cocktail Challenge entry. “The finale was a blast- it brought the 12 finalists by popular vote together to compete in three waves in front of

Owners of MADE Chocolate Bar, Mark and Deb Pellegrino with the their winning Mintini. the judges. Not only did each competitor get to prepare and present their creation to the crowd that night to woo the popular vote, but they were

then asked to do the same before the judges who evaluated and scored each one to determine the cocktail with the best chance of becoming a staple in the AC beverage

landscape.� says CEO of Little Water Distillery, Mark Ganter. The judging criteria was thoughtfully crafted by Stockton University’s Hospitality and Tourism Management Associate Professor, Donna Albano, who also served as a judge for the finale. Alongside of Donna Albano, also serving as cocktail challenge judges, were industry professionals, AC Arts Foundation President Evan Sanchez, AC Beerfest founder Jon Henderson, Chef Michael Brennen, columnist and news director David Spatz, former mayor of AC Don Guardian, and food and wine writer Tara Nurnin. The drinks were judged based on taste, timelessness, visual appeal, iconic quality of the name, efficiency of preparation, broadness of appeal, symbolic representation of Atlantic City, originality of ingredients, and non-seasonality. Albano explains the entire challenge experience as “teamwork personified and an amazing representation of industry participants who are serious about their crafts and Atlantic City roots.� When all the drinks were poured and votes were cast, the winner of the first AC Cocktail Challenge was announced!

show our support for LWD and 48 Blocks! We love the community vibe that is catching on right now.

The bonus for us was that everyone who ordered our Mintini really loved it as much as we did! Mark was proud to represent us with the cocktail we created together and we were both surprised to win!� said Deborah Pellegrino, co owner of MADE Atlantic City Chocolate Bar. “While the name implies something very sweet and almost “desserty� it’s a deliciously balanced cocktail with a homemade peppermint patty as a garnish. In addition it’s very simple to make and has the right balance to appeal to a variety of drinkers,� says Mark Ganter. “Later n ex t month, City Council will pass a resolution designating this as AC’s Signature Cocktail and, with a lot of hard work pro-

Summer Reading for Kids

By Marci Lutsky

Jaylene Ibarra, age 7 of Pleasantville won the " Rockin Reader" at the Atlantic County Library.

S

omething magical happened to my twins in first grade… they became readers! Kindergarten prepared them very well to recognize and read sight words, while first grade took their reading to the next level. My daughter definitely caught the reading bug first ,and my son quickly followed suit. We are a month into summer vacation and I’m amazed at how much time they have spent reading this summer since our schedule is much more relaxed. Here are some helpful tips that seem to have worked

with my kids to get them hooked on reading. Read together at a regular time each day. For us, this has always been before bedtime. The kids have a large collection of books and they take turns choosing our nighttime story. At this point they are able to read most of the books on their own, but we still enjoy reading together as a family every night. Help them find books or series that interest them. My daughter sailed through the Magic Tree House series this past year. In these books, Jack and Annie, a brother and sister, discover a magical tree house that takes them on adventures to solve all sorts of mysteries. My daughter has since moved on to Fact Trackers, written by the same authors and filled with non-fiction information. My son prefers books that are sillier. His favorite series is called Dog Man, about a crime-fighting canine who is part dog, part man. My son has also

recently tak-en a liking g to the Alvin Ho series, about a second grader who is afraid of everything at school, but is much more adventurous at home. It can be tricky finding books that your kids connect with. I always ask librarians or friends for recommendations. This may seem obvious, but visit your local library often. We probably go about once a week in the summer and the kids can choose a few books each. The challenging part is keeping track of the books and making sure they get returned to the correct library. The libraries have recommended summer reading books for each grade level. Bookstores are fun to browse in, but can be expensive. I recently stumbled upon a fantastic used bookshop in Ocean City on Asbury between 10th and 11th called The Bookateria Two. In the back of

the store they have a great children’s used book section. My kids each picked out a few books that were very inexpensive. Join or create a reading challenge. A friend of my kids took the initiative to create a summer reading challenge in which kids are encouraged to keep track of all the books they read over the summer. At the end of the summer, the winner in each grade level will get a free ice cream from a local ice cream shop. This is a fun way to get kids kid excited about reading and having it sponsored by a local business is a bonus! n I always make sure to keep books anywhere my kids might feel inspired to read them. My kids spend a portion of long car rides reading, and sometimes when they are eating breakffast, t th they will pick up a book and get engrossed in a story. Reading should be fun and not feel forced. Give children the opportunity to find stories they connect with and they will hopefully develop a love of reading!

Half Full or Half Empty? By Jeff Whitaker

I

s your glass half empty or half full? It is true that our outlook significantly impacts how we deal with a given situation. This principle applies on so many levels, but I found it interesting in its application in the workplace. Forbes recently published an article looking at the findings of a study on why so many leaders struggle to compliment their employees. The findings are based on a research paper entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reason-based choice.â&#x20AC;? In the study, the researchers found that how a leader or manager looks at a particular situation greatly impacts how they interact with their employee. The study found that when faced with the need to choose, decision makers often seek and construct reasons in order to resolve the conflict and justify their choice, to themselves and to others. Experiments that explore and manipulate the role of reasons are reviewed, and other decision studies are interpreted from this perspective. Huh? Essentially what this all means is this. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a leader and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking to evaluate an employee on his or her performance. I start by making a mental note of all of the qualities of this employee, positive and not so positive. I then form a question in my mind. I might ask how well they are doing given the responsibilities theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been assigned. In this case, I might very well find

reasons to praise their work. However, if my first question is phrased slightly different, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could things improve in their area of responsibilities?â&#x20AC;?, I might just tend to think of all the ways they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t living up to all they could on the job. And here is one of the conclusions of the study: how leaders approach an evaluation or situation with an employee greatly impacts that leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interaction and response to the employee. The reality is that most leaders approach their jobs not looking for the good and the positive being accomplished, but rather looking for what isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting done to their satisfaction, and the areas which are falling short in the company or organization. The good news is that if you are a leader and reading this, you can choose how to approach your employees. Make a conscience effort to seek out the positive and downplay the negative. In the end, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find that the more positive reinforcement someone gets, the more positive their performance will be in the end. Is your glass half full or half empty? Your answer to that question may very well impact the output of every employee around you.

A Look Back At The Flanders Hotel

A

fter World War I, Ocean City officials actively promoted the idea that a subsidized hotel would significantly develop the city’s potential. In the winter months of 1922, the Chamber of Commerce lobbied the Ocean City government and other groups for support. They explained how the completion of the Delaware River Bridge in Philadelphia would bring many more visitors to the Jersey Shore. Being that Ocean City’s need for newer accommodations was well known, it was an absolute necessity to build a Grand Ocean Front Hotel to realize financial gains from this valuable beachfront property. As a result, the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce appointed a committee to thoroughly investigate the feasibility and demand for such a project. This committee became the Ocean Front Hotel Corporation (OFHC), a group of twenty-four local businessmen and prominent citizens. With this vision in mind, this group concluded that Ocean City could not hold her own against the competition of her resort rivals without this hotel. As a whole, the broader community hoped that a new hotel could revive the resort just as the Blenheim Hotel pointed Atlantic City in a positive new direction. For that reason, Ocean City residents assumed a large part of the financial responsibility, purchasing stock from the Ocean Front Hotel Corporation. Upon the suggestion of the OFHC, the organization chose to name the hotel “THE FLANDERS” in memory of the fallen Allied troops of World War I’s dreadful “Battle of Flanders”, fought in Belgium in 1914. To design this $1.5 million monument, the largest construction project in Ocean City to that point, the Corporation hired local architect Vivian B. Smith. Born in Ocean

City in 1886, Smith left for an apprenticeship in Philadelphia after graduation from Ocean City High School, and returned in 1904 and began working for an Atlantic City architect. Smith’s professional contributions to Ocean City include the designs of City Hall in 1915, a new High School in 1924, and the Music Pier in 1929. The Flanders Hotel, constructed of tile roofing, steel girders and concrete, was billed as “fireproof”, a major consideration of that time in history. The use of these materials made the Flanders a uniquely sturdy structure and is largely responsible for its survival from the great fire of 1927 and other natural disasters that ravaged the shoreline for years to come. The gentleman overseeing the hotel’s construction was J.

Howard Slocum who also oversaw the operation of the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. He added professional credibility to the project as a renowned hotelman, who also assumed management of the hotel once completed. The hotel was built to transform Ocean City into a world-class venue. Whether it succeeded to reach that goal or not, it did make Ocean City a serious South Jersey destination. The 232 room hotel, with many sun decks, a swimming pool, and bath in each room, was constructed to compete with tried and true hotels along the coast. The Flanders was not complete on its opening day in 1923, but the ceremonies continued nonetheless. The rainy-day festivities on July 23rd ushered in a bright new era in the re-

sort’s history. The event was held in the Flanders’ elegant ballrooms, which were adorned with images of poppies to symbolize the Battle Fields of Flanders. Guests enjoyed an evening full of speeches, fine dining and dancing. The “JEWEL of THE SOUTHERN JERSEY SHORE” was born. The Flanders became the new face of Ocean City. Approaching the island, the Flanders white washed structure towered above the landscape. Most of the buildings at that time were approximately four stories tall and overwhelmingly Victorian in nature. The Flanders was so prominent that it became a visual landmark, evidenced by the fact that almost any postcard or official photograph of Ocean City prominently featured the hotel.

On Tour: A dedication to little Nicholas By Dean Randazzo

T

he year was 2007, when I met little Nicholas. Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad would always bring 4 year old Nickolas to all of the surfing events happening in New Jersey, including the Belmar Pro. Nick loved surfing! I instantly bonded with Nicholas, especially since he said I was his favorite surfer, above Kelly Slater, who was his second favorite. Yes, what a great kid! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never told this story to anyone but it was such a powerful experience for me that I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to share. Nicholas had cancer- Leukemia of some sort- he was battling it before I met him. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know he was sick if you met him; he was so full of life! His dad was a surfer, and naturally little Nick loved it too. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not

Best Breakfast on the Island

even sure if he ever even surfed, but I know he boogie boarded and aspired to be a surfer. Seeing him and his dad at the events was always uplifting for me; little Nick was always happy, and had a big smile and laughed a lot; you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know he was going through so much. My cancer relapsed in 2006, Hodgkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lymphoma. My treatment option was a stem cell transplant with my own stem cells. There is some con-

troversy about stem cells out there; maybe a more of misunderstanding about the subject- this procedure isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Frankenstein movies or anything like that- this is using human stem cells form a donor who matches someone in need, or its your own stem cells harvested from you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great thing to donate blood and get yourself on a donor list. You could save someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and its non invasive! Go do it today! I met Nicholas during this time frame. We had something in common: we were both battling cancer, and both fighting for our lives! We had something to give each other for support, weather we knew it at the time or not. For me it was his uplifting spirit- always smiling, laughing and happy. And for him, I was a role model who had been through it before, and I offered support, encouragement and hope. As time passed, Nick was doing ok; lots of hope for him to beat his cancer. As for me, on the other hand, I

had relapsed again; my stem cell transplant didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work! Heading into the end of 2007 my doctor thought to try radiation Cyberknife, which directly targets the lymph nodes affected. So, I followed his advice and did 28 treatments. During this time, January 1st 2007, my first son was born - a miracle child, Dean Jr.! I won a pro surf contest in San Diego at about treatment 22, towards the end of January, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another story. I kept surfing during treatments, against doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders, because it was therapeutic for me. The radiation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, so my doctors had one more option for a cure: another stem cell transplant, but I would need a donor. The best donors are siblings. I have an older sister and brother. My sister, Denise, came back 25% match, and my brother, Joe, came back 100% match. Thank God! To put this in basic terms: the better the match, the fewer complications. Before my treatments, I promised Nicholas I would take him surfing, when we were both better and able to go into the ocean. I was really looking forward to that day! It gave me something else to look forward to after the treatments, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped it did the same for him. I was on a layover in Melbourne airport in Australia, March 2009. I was back on tour surfing the Australian leg. Nick was still going through treatments but was doing well before I left for Australia, as far as I knew. I got my computer out and checked my emails and I saw an email from Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. It was morning time in Australia, and I was in a small coffee shop eating a

croissant and enjoying a French press coffee. I remember this moment like it was yesterday! I opened my email and saw an email from Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. He often sent me emails updating me on Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status, so I opened it. It read that Nick had lost his fight and passed away. I was in shock; I thought he was doing ok. Tears ran from my eyes as I realized the magnitude of this email message. My mind went wild. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe he had passed! We were supposed to surf together! We had a pact! I got close to little Nick and really wanted him to beat his illness, as I was. At this moment, my mind was thinking that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have a cancer foundation anymore. This loss was way too much for me. I had gotten too close. My emotions were firing! My thoughts were, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I quitâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m done with this. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle this kind of shitâ&#x20AC;?. Many negative thoughts were going through my head at that moment. I wanted to quit and never wanted to get close to anyone dealing with cancer again! Then, I stopped and thought for a moment. There must have been something good out of this? But what? He died - what good is that? I thought deeper, and I remembered something special about him: he was always happy, smiling and laughing, having a good time, when I was around him. I was his favorite

surfer after all! Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I had an epiphany; it was like a rush of energy came through my body! I realized something in that coffee shop that day that was so powerful it changed my life! I was so negative when I heard the news, but when I realized this, it changed everything! I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heal him, but I made his life a little better while he was here. He was happy and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thinking about his cancer treatments or feeling sick. I helped take his mind off all of that and he was a happy kid! He helped me in my fight also. It was such an empowering moment in my life! Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dad sent another email 15 minutes later. In it, he asked me to promise him that I would win the Belmar Pro for Nick. Wow I thought, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tall order! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Italian and Irish; if I promise something, I gotta do it! Man, this is a tough promise to commit to! I always did well at this event, but the best I had ever done in the past was a 4th place finish. I emailed him back, promising him that I would win the Belmar Pro for Nick, no time frame given, and now the pressure was on! Belmar pro September 2009. Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mom and Dad were there watching, to support me in my pursuit to win. The pressure was on and I really wanted to win it for Nick. I came up short that year, losing out in the

semi finals. Not a bad finish for a WQS 2 event, but not the win. 2010 Belmar pro I finished in the quarterfinals, again failing my promise, and with each year the pressure was mounting! Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad was there but I could tell he was losing faith. The 2011 Belmar pro was a little different, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad. I looked for him before each heat but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see him. I caught a glimpse of him in the distance as he was leaving the beach that day. I wondered if he was giving up on me? After all, I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kept my promise, and yet another year had gone by without the win. At this point, I was letting him down. If I promise something, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it, but another year had gone by and now the pressure was really mounting. In 2012 the Belmar pro added a Masters division, 35 and up. There was a lot of excitement for this division because in 2010, Ron Jon presented a big Masters of Surfing event at Sebastian Inlet, Florida. It drew a large, solid crew of top level surfers from around the country. I won that event that year and was also really excited for the Masters event at the 2012 Belmar Pro. The waves were really good this year: 3-5 foot clean waves peeling off the south end Jetty. It was finals day, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad at all during the 3 day event. Maybe he had given up on me? The

horn blew. I was paddling out for the finals of the Masters Belmar Pro. The beach was packed with spectators. It was a beautiful, hot September day with great waves, and people were getting excited to watch some great surfing! 30 minutes went by; the final was over and the announcer declares me the winner! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m walking out of the water as the crowd is cheering. Someone runs out of the thick crowd, blindsides me, and picks me up off the ground with my surfboard, bear hugging me. I never saw this personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. He grabbed me so fast and so tight and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You did it! You did it for Nick! Thank you! You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much this means to me!â&#x20AC;? I was really trying to hold back the tears, as it was a very emotional moment! I did it for Nick! As fast as he appeared, he put me down and disappeared into the crowd, and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen or spoken to him since.

Say Goodbye to Processed Foods Forever

By Nancy Adler

W

ith people being busier than ever, the demand for fast food, even in the form of seemingly healthy energy bars, is only growing. Although most people would agree that eating whole foods is healthier for them, the reality is that few people actually take the time to grow and prepare their food from scratch. One way to clean up a diet is to cut out processed foods. I suggest the the initial step in cleaning up an unhealthy diet is to identify what processed foods truly are. Anything commercially packaged, and not in its natural state, would be considered processed. For instance, a granola bar that is made up of ingredients such as oats, nuts and fruits would still be considered processed since none of those ingredients are in its original state. Buying the fruit before being cut up, dehydrated, or cooked would be the original state. In general, foods with labels attached to them with a long ingredient list can be assumed to be processed. Learning to read labels diligently is a major step to a healthier diet. In general, the less processed, the better. I explain to my clients, when reading labels, a rule of thumb should be the fewer ingredients, the better. Additionally, when reading the ingredients, if they are difficult to pronounce, or you simply do not know what it is, it

is probably best to avoid that food. I believe the worst offenders tend to be any food that is microwaveable, such as frozen meals, as well as most foods found inside a vending machine. Cutting out processed foods entirely can be challenging, so it is important to take baby steps, rather than quitting processed foods cold turkey. There are also many processed foods that have very few ingredients, such as tomato sauce. Buying or better yet, making pasta, then adding a jar of tomato sauce is a much healthier alternative to microwaving a frozen spaghetti entrée. After eliminating the worst offenders when it comes to processed food, it is time to tackle the rest of the pantry. I find this is most important! Ensuring that most mealtimes and snacks are made with whole foods takes some planning. If eating on the go is a regular habit, consider making homemade trail mix or granola bars with only a few ingredients. When it comes to meals, making a plan in advance for the week can make it easier to avoid processed foods. Start with lunches, if you are the type of person who purchases lunch every day. Consider batch cooking, or making an extra serving of dinner to pack for lunch the following day. A helpful tip is that there are several great apps and blogs focused on meal planning with whole foods, so take advantage of these resources while customizing the recipes to your tastes.

t the end of June, my cooking partner from Happy Hear t Corner and I taught our first farm to table class at B&B Farms. We did it again this past week and it was simply magical. There are so many reasons why this class model works well for kids and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud of what we have created. The best part of farm to table classes is that we

ing your own dressing is so much fresher and healthier than anything store-bought. The kids chopped an assortment of vegetables including peppers, cucumbers, and carrots to snack on during class while we cooked. One of my favorite parts of class is watching kids taste freshly picked vegetables and hear them remark how different they taste than what they buy in the supermarket. We next prepared dessert which was peach parfaits. This is a favorite recipe in our kids cooking classes which we vary with different fruits and cookie crumbs. For this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe, the kids layered gr a ham crackers crumbs with peaches and a cheesecake filling. We let these chill in the refrigerator while we worked on our other two recipes. We made vegetable summer rolls using rice paper wrappers that none of the kids had ever worked with before. Rice paper wrappers can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket. We chopped a variety of vegetables including avocado, cucumber, pepper and cabbage. The kids chose how to fill their summer rolls depending

are cooking with what is in season. Last month was all about blueberries. The kids were very familiar with blueberry and strawberry picking but this week we changed it up. We picked tomatoes, green beans, and fresh herbs. Many kids attending our class had never picked tomatoes or green beans so this was a new experience for them. Other vegetables available for our cooking class were cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, and peppers. We started off class by picking our vegetables and then making a quick and easy ranch dressing. Mak-

on their vegetable preferences and then we made a simple and delicious peanut dipping sauce. If you are looking for ways to expand what your kids eat, try giving them choices. Let them choose toppings for their pizza or fillings for their grilled cheese. I find that kids are more likely to eat what they have made. For our last recipe we made caprese skewers. The kids threaded chopped peaches, mini mozzarella balls and freshly picked tomatoes on skewers with fresh basil. The kids made a simple dipping sauce of balsamic vinegar, honey and Dijon mustard. To say that this menu was a hit would be an understatement. The kids left class with a deeper appreciation of farm life and how special it is to harvest and eat local ingredients. Our next farm to table cooking class will be held on August 28th. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/happyheartcorner.

The Science Behind Jellyfish By Steffen Klenk

T

ake a moment to picture your perfect beach day. The sun is out, you’re working on your tan and there’s sand between your toes. You decide to go for a swim in the ocean, until you notice an object lurking in the distance. Coming into close encounter with a jellyfish may feel eerie, but there is nothing worse than being stung by one. The feeling of getting stung could ruin anyone’s day. Jellyfish prefer living near the surface of the ocean and thrive in warm temperatures. They typically begin to appear along

the beaches around mid-August and mid-September. Why does a jellyfish sting hurt so much? The answer hides in their tentacles. Jellyfish have a special cell that run along their tentacles known as cnidocytes. The cnidae in their tentacles produce venom that protects them from predators and subdue them. The most common jellyfish you are likely to find wash up along our coastline is the moon jelly. They live up to a year in captivity and feed off of mollusks and plankton. Also known as Aurelia aurita, the moon jelly is

just off of ocean waters between New Jersey and Massachusetts and up and down the West Coast from California to Alaska. The Portugese man o’ war jellyfish, or bluebottles might be fascinating to look at, with its colorful purple-blue appearance, but think twice before approaching one up close. The men o’ wars have thousands of small cells

known for its pink crescent-shaped underbelly. Box jellyfish may be considered our worst enemy of the bunch. They have tentacles up to nine feet in length and can produce a painful, venomous sting to any of its prey. A new threat has been lurking within the waters of Barnegat Bay. Boaters and swimmers have been keeping a watchful eye for clinging jellyfish. The Gonionemus vertens is about the size of a quarter and has up to 90 tentacles that can produce a sharp sting. They have been spotted

that can pack a painful, sometimes venomous sting. While their tentacles have an average length as 30 feet, they can extend up to 165 feet. They are mainly found in tropical and subtropical waters and like to travel in colonies. Beachgoers have been spotting the Portuguese man o’war up and down the Eastern seaboard. In recent weeks, residents in Wildwood discovered the brightly-colored stinger while walking the beach. If you should find a man o’war while swimming or walking the beach, do not touch it. Leave it just as you found it and warn the local beach patrol. Most jellyfish stings can be cured using affective treatment. In the event that you get stung by a jellyfish, medical experts advise rinsing the affected sting with vinegar water for at least 30 seconds. Then, using a pair of tweezers, remove the tentacle and soak the affected area in hot water for 20 minutes. Do not apply alcohol to the site or the sting. If you get stung by a box jellyfish or end up with a severe reaction, call 911 to seek urgent medical help. These important tips will help to keep you and your family safe.

A Brief History of Yoga: Part 1 By Anthony Conte of Om Room Yoga

Y

oga began over 5,000 years ago in Northern India - at least we think so. In early days, the teachings of yoga were passed along orally and were very secretive. The transcriptions that were completed, were done on fragile palm leaves that were easily destroyed. All of this makes pinpointing the true origins very difficult, and some experts believe the practice could be close to 10,000 years old. In 1893, Chicago was hosting the

World Columbian Exposition (an early World Fair), and due to the anticipated large number of attendees, several other smaller conferences were organized to entertain and educate. One of these was the the Parliament of Religions where Swami Vivekananda, representing Hinduism, first presented yoga to the western world and launched our fascination with the East. In 1920 Paramahansa Yogananda came to address a conference of religious liberals in Boston with the goal of spreading the message of Yoga to the West. Then in 1924, the US imposed strict immigration limits on India, forcing those with an interest in yoga to travel West. An early traveler to India from the US was Theos Bernard, who returned from India in 1947 and published “Hatha Yoga: The Report of a Personal Experience”, which became the key reference guide for yoga throughout the 1950’s. In that same year (1947), Eugenie V. Peterson, also known under her Hindu name as Indra Devi, opened a yoga studio in Hollywood and wrote three books which become widely popular with housewives from coast to coast. She was a Russian

yoga teacher and early disciple of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, who formed what she claimed as her own form of yoga, incorporating the physical poses, breathing exercises and diet. Another key yoga Pioneer, Richard Hittleman, returned to New York in 1950 from India and began teaching. He sold millions of copies of his books and pioneered yoga on television in 1961, and influenced the way yoga has been taught in the US ever since. While he was a very spiritual yogi,

he taught from a more non-religious aspect, focusing more on the physical practice and benefits. He hoped to appeal to the American mainstream and hoped students would be interested and motivated to learn more about the yoga philosophy and meditation after becoming interested in the physical benefits. Clearly with a 5,000 year history, I have only scratched the surface of the history and the people that have influenced what yoga is today, and will cover a few more in future articles.

However, this was nothing compared to the public reaction and media attention drawn by what seemed to me a logical move, following the closing of the Taj and the election of Trump, the creation of an Atlantic City Trump Museum project that would use artifacts and stories to preserve the history of Trump’s involvement in Atlantic City. After discussing the project with some colleagues at Stockton, we put out a release and immediately received interest from a Press of Atlantic City reporter, whose story was picked up the next day by the Associated

What surprised me most was the way in which people of all political persuasions seemed to assume that any “Trump Museum” would be a shrine to the man who was once the largest employer in Atlantic City, but suffered several bankruptcies, and was known to shortchange small businesses throughout the area. Moreover, this was the same feedback I faced when I spoke to a Temple undergrad class in the spring of 2017, despite the fact that they had been learning all semester how professional museums were run.

A Sweet Business Model By Joe Molineaux

T

here is so much anticipation and excitement around the Atlantic City’s Tennessee Avenue Renaissance Project. The project plan contains the creation and build out of a yoga studio, a coffee shop, and a beer hall with food offerings. Those are all solid ideas for businesses. They are also very much the types of businesses that will help attract people to our region and serve our local population. However, there was an additional business planned for the Tennessee Avenue Project that caught my attention from the moment plans were announced. MADE Atlantic City Chocolate Bar opened their doors this past April and has experience a growing clientele for their delicious cocktails, and wines paired perfectly with fine cheeses and delicious chocolates. While I enjoy all of the above, my interest and now excitement has less to do with the street side beverage and pairings than what is

happening just a few from their bar and comfortable gathering space. By design, Deb and Mark Pellegrino, who both have extensive Chef and restaurant experience, respectively, understood the potential of creating both a chocolate retail space and a manufacturing operation onsite. Chocolate being created with the highest quality ingredients, and handcrafted on property, completely enhances the business model for Made Atlantic City Chocolate Bar, and brings additional value for the business and our region. Producing a consumable product that people enjoy, and even crave, is a great way to utilize a well-designed space. This model allows for the best of both worlds, a vibrant retail business along with the extension of the business through both small and large retail sales, wholesale accounts, and custom made bars to meet almost any and all customer request. Deb and Mark are the brainchild behind the design, development, and ultimate delivery of numerous styles of chocolate. If you visit to the Made Atlantic City Chocolate Bar and catch a glimpse of the owners “in action”, you will see two hard working individuals whose work ethic and drive are perfectly balanced with the right amount of smile and style. Their chocolate color inspired work attire is the

perfect complement to the unique décor of the retail side of their workspace. With a solid connection to the industry and the community, it was not long before the orders for some custom made and packaged chocolate bars were being produced. They fill small orders for a special occasions and family gatherings, to large company orders as giveaways for some of our area’s most sizable businesses. MADE offers four different wrapper styles customizable with stickers. So why am I so excited about the business model that MADE Atlantic City Chocolate Bar has created? Why do I see so much growth potential in what Deb and Mark Pellegrino have created? It is not because everyone I know loves chocolate in every form. It is because the ability to create increased income sources, by utilizing portions of a retail space to create products you sell to multiple markets and at large quantity wholesale, is a pretty sweet business model. From the outside looking in, MADE Atlantic City Chocolate Bar seems like the perfect place to grab a cocktail or beverage of choice, while enjoying some tasty sampling before or after an event or happening in Atlantic City. However, beyond the clever name and the door that separates the bar and where the bars are

created, lays the secret to MADE’s future success. It is the balance of a well-designed and well executed plan and business model, that perfectly combines retail access with manufacturing, with the potential to serve the masses both inside and outside of our region. Here is a bonus Business Beats tip: If you want to be remembered in business, try something unique. The next time you or your business are looking for a way to say thank you to customers, promote something new, or just to show your employees how much they are appreciated, consider giving the gift of custom made and wrapped chocolate. It is one of the sweetest ways to do so!

No Satisfaction The Rolling Stones and Donald Trump in Atlantic City

by John Gibbons

P

ublished on concert ticketing site Pollstar, this yarn was delivered by concert promoter and Broadway producer Michael Cohl at the 2015 Pollstar Live! event, and offers an intersting tale about Donald Trump during his rise in the 1980s and The Rolling Stones. Michael Cohl was the Stones promoter for their Steel Wheels tour. He is the former chairman of concert promoter Live Nation, and over the course of his career has worked on massive tours by Michael Jackson, U2 and Barbra Streisand. The Rolling Stones were closing the first leg of their successful 1989 Steel Wheels tour with three shows in Atlantic City. The 16,000 seat Boardwalk Hall was the small-

est venue the band played in its three-and-a-half-month trek across the United States and Canada. The highlight of the three nights was the December 19th date, which featured guest appearances by Eric Clapton, legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker and singer Axl Rose and guitarist Izzy Stradlin of Guns n’ Roses. Michael Cohl recalls, “I realized that when they did a big boxing match they would separate the promotion and the fight. For the fight, you’d get a site fee from Las Vegas. You’d get a dollar, a million, a billion. Whatever. You’d get a ‘site fee’ and you’d get a worldwide closed-circuit. I thought, geez, if I can separate the Stones from their own gig, and just concentrate on the pay-per-view, then I might pull it off.” A pay-per-view live concert could produce huge profits. The problem? He couldn’t find a taker in Vegas. “They didn’t get it, they didn’t like rock music yet.” The one person who got it was Trump, who had properties in Atlantic City. So Cohl pitched

the idea. “I opened my big mouth in the meeting with the Rolling Stones where they go, ‘This is all great, but we’re not going to be affiliated with Donald Trump at all” And I go, ‘I will control Donald Trump! Don’t you worry!’” that he wouldn’t be involved in any promotional activity. He couldnt even attend the show. But just before 6 p.m. on concert night, Cohl was beckoned into the venue’s press room. “I run to the press room in the next building and what do you think is happening? There’s Donald Trump giving a press conference, in our room! "I say, come on, Donald, what are you doing? A) You promised us you wouldn’t even be here and, B) you promised you would never do this.’ He says, ‘But they begged me to go up, Michael! They begged me to go up!’ I say, ‘Stop it. Stop it. Thinking he’d extinguished the fire, Cohl returned to the dressing room only to get word five minutes later that Trump had found his way back to the mic to continue the press conference. Finally, according to the promoter, the Stones’ Keith Richards got involved. “They call me back, at which point Keith pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says to me, ‘What the hell do I have you for? Do I have to go over there and fire him myself? One of us is leaving the building – either him, or us.’ Words were exchanged, the upshot of which, recalls Cohl, “I’m trying to throw Donald Trump out of his own building.” The rest of the story, recalled by Cohl, is as follows:

Backstage pass

“[Trump] looks at me and goes berserk. He says “’You don’t know anything! I promote heav y weight fights!’ And I notice the three security gaurds he’s with, in trench coats, two of them are putting on gloves and the other one is putting on brass knuckles. I go on the walkie-talkie and I call for Jim Callahan, who was head of our security, and I go, ‘Jim, I think I’m in a bit of trouble.’ And he says, ‘Just turn around.’ “I turn around. He’s got 40 of the roadie crew with tire irons and hockey sticks and screwdrivers, effectively sending off Trump and his goons. “And that was the night I fired Donald Trump,” Cohl concluded.

Fairy Gardens

T By Tammy Thornton

â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rachel Carson

read lightly and quietly in the garden, for fairies may be near. Is it possible to hear their wings flutter with the human ear? The evidence is clear enough: missing tools, broken pots, mysterious treasures left behind. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scare them away; invite them in and enter a world of enchantment. Why are we so drawn to miniature things? Perhaps we feel gigantic and powerful like Gulliver, but he ended up in knots! Nevertheless, fairies and pixies and all things small tend to bring out that sense of wonder that some of us have forgotten. Years ago, I taught childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gardening classes, where our favorite projects were fairy gardens. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something fascinating about miniatures. Time to play in the garden and tap into your inner child as you create a magical imaginary world. Almost any container

is suitable for a fairy garden. I prefer a shallow pot with a large surface so I have plenty of room to create my little scene, but I have also seen adorable mini gardens in teacups. An old tree trunk is a perfect place to add a little door for a fairy house, then let your imagination lead the way. Lanterns or bird baths, and even an old dresser drawer or suitcase all make inviting places for mini gardens. Back when I was teaching my classes, fairy gardens were just starting to become popular and we had to be creative by finding things in nature or taking household items and giving them new uses. Since that time, mini gardens have really caught on and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to find little props at garden nurseries, craft stores, and online. You can buy little fairy houses, mini swings, and adorable miniature bistro furniture. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more fun to decorate your mini garden with natural items and maybe add one or two special things that you have purchased. Paint the inside of a seashell or jar lid blue to become a little pond for your pixies. Small pebbles you find could be used as stepping stones leading to a little house. Those cheap little wooden bird houses can be painted to make a very inviting house for your fairies Do you remember the delight of making your own dollhouse furniture? Once you start, you see everyday objects with new eyes. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay to be small-minded. Think like a fairy. If you have children or grandchildren, this is a great rainy day project to keep them busy. Give them a start

and their little imaginations will run wild. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need children as an excuse though; stay young at heart by using your own creativity. Of course a garden must have plants. Use dainty flowers that look to scale with your mini garden. You may even find the perfect plant already in your own yard. Moss can be dug up and placed over the soil and what you once considered a weed may have tiny flowers just right for a pixieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden. You can make your fairy garden even more interesting with a theme. In the fall, my local garden nursery sells Halloween fairy garden supplies. At Christmastime, add a wreath to your fairyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front door or fence. Or even better, give them a Christmas tree, complete with presents, of course. How fun is that? For my class, we gave our fairies a little beach. We sprinkled sand on part of the soil and used little cocktail um-

add dinosaurs and giant bugs to the scene. Hey, if it’s your world, anything goes, right? Have fun as you take a break from the more serious side of gardening. Who knows, you may be lucky enough to lure the fairies to stay.

The Compassion Experience came to Somers Point

By Gena Laielli

T

he Compassion Experience is a project of Compassion International, a non profit organization that has been making a difference in the lives of children growing up in some of the most impoverished places on earth. Statistics show 385 million children living in extreme poverty (defined as less than $1.90/day. This type of poverty stands in direct opposition to children growing up healthy, educated and with every opportunity to achieve their potential. The Compassion Experience gives visitors a chance to see how life is for some children and can give them a different perspective.

40

The nearly 4,000 visitors were given headsets and given an audio-guided journey featuring replicas of the homes and environments of real children who have grown up under the weight of extreme poverty. Visitors journeyed with the children from poverty to hope and and experienced new countries and cultures along the way. The stories featured are all true and told with permission and direction from the Compassion-sponsored children who lived them. Compassionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core strategy for combating child poverty is oneto - one sponsorship. Sponsors are individually connected with a child who will get to know them

The Hurley Line: Grossman Faces Still More National Media Attacks ... Van Drew Focusing on being a Consensus Builder

By HARRY HURLEY Political Columnist

T

he relentless national media assault against United States House of Representatives candidate, Seth Grossman, R-CD2, shows no signs of letting up. In fact, it’s intensifying. This is something that I have told you before the campaign even began would be the case. It will not let up until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. The latest case in point: Rolling Stone Magazine. A July 9, 2018 article written by Tessa Stone. For maximum political damage, it’s titled: “The Hateful 8: Meet the Biggest Bigots On the Ballot in 2018.” This is outrageous and they now freely include language that you never would have seen or heard in the past. These sanctimonious liberals are now

42

fast approaching full-blown radical socialist status. The so-called “Hateful 8” include: Paul Nehlen, Grossman, Joe Arpaio, Russell Walker, Steve King, Arthur Jones, Corey Stewart, and John Fitzgerald. The incendiary article’s sub headline reads: From Holocaust denial to racism and homophobia, these men have loud opinions - and they want your vote!” The beginning of the stealth pro-Democratic piece concludes that the Trump era has “opened the door for candidates motivated by white nationalism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, misogyny and racism.” Basically, they’ve checked every divisive box in their identity politics arsenal in an attempt to not just beat their perceived opponents; they are set on destroying them. The so-called tolerant (Democrat) class is accusing others of testing the appetite of the American electorate for bigotry in candidates seeking elective office. They are leaving nothing to chance. They are willing to scorch the Earth, to rule the ashes! What they fail to understand is that even if you’re successful with this strategy, they’ve caused everything left to become dried out and lifeless. Winning is always the desired result, however, it

should never come at such a terminal price. The article is so biased that it stretches all credulity by purposefully inviting an accused white nationalist and admitted pedophile into the article, so that the reader compares this type of despicable character to their so-called “Hateful 8” that they have targeted for ruination. A point of emphasis that I’ve been trying to impress upon you is that this is the strategy being employed by the pro-Democratic media all over America. Their dirty playbook is to wreck at least 23 Republican candidates. In their twisted minds, they believe that anything other than Democrats being in the majority is unacceptable. Here is how Rolling Stone Magazine describes Grossman: “The former city councilman and county freeholder from Atlantic City has written that gay men should have been quarantined in the ‘80s and called Islam “a cancer.” On Facebook, he’s shared posts by Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer, anti-Islam agitator Pamela Geller, alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos. as well as racist memes, including one that suggested Arabs, like Obama, want to “move to your country, rape our women, bomb your buses, riot in your streets, and demand that accept (their) religion.”

Most people couldn’t imagine even one of the things above being said or written about you. Imagine having the whole book thrown in your face, and having to deal with a national media trying to re-write your entire life in a few months. Grossman can’t begin campaigning about what he is for. Because he keeps having to address accusations about his past spoken and written words. If he doesn’t find a way to reverse this trajectory, it’s all over before it even began. It can easily get to the point where he has no control over his circumstances whatsoever. On top of this, Grossman faces one of the toughest opponents in America in State Senator Jeff Van Drew, D-1. Grossman also faces a focused and determined pro-Democratic media, who purchase their print ink by the barrel and their bandwidth by almost incalculable megabits per second. As usual, during this bizarre general election season, I’m more than 600 words into this column and there’s only been one scant mention about Van Drew. That’s not right. Van Drew is an impeccable candidate, who has spent the past 27 years perfecting an image and voting record that is very tough to effectively attack. He’s fiscally conservative. And, he’s a bit

JULY 26-AUGUST 8, 2018


unpredictable when it comes to certain issues where most Democrats would monolithically vote one way, Van Drew goes the other. Van Drew has already confirmed that he will not vote for Nancy Pelosi to be House Speaker should Democrats recapture the majority. Van Drew is also the kind of Democrat that would not vote to impeach President Trump. This is important, because Democratic candidates who can be bossed have been told not to bring-up the issue of impeachment. They know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a winning issue. But, make no mistake about it, the current radical Democratic minority leadership desperately wants to impeach The President. The fact that District 2 will be represented by a Member who does not support impeachment is significant. At least 20 other Democratic candidates who have a good chance to win have also confirmed that they will not vote for Pelosi. Most of them are also not the types who would vote for impeachment. In fairness to Van Drew, who I almost never write about purely because he was guilty of dominating his Primary campaign season, and the Republican Primary was undeniably much more interesting. Van Drew deserves to receive fair coverage. Van Drew has always been there for the District. He fought relentlessly against North Jersey casinos when the late Senator and one other Atlantic County Assemblyman were calling it inevitable. They rolled over, while Van

Drew fought hard from neighboring District 1 to materially aid in the fight against bringing casino gaming to North Jersey. Van Drew also never gave up on the issue of legalized sports betting in New Jersey. Most called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s errand.â&#x20AC;? Van Drew never quit, knowing that it was at least worth the good fight. These are just two examples that looked like clear losing hands, turned into big winners. Van Drew played a key role in both. It demonstrates that Van Drew will do the right thing, even when the outcome for success looks unlikely. Van Drew contends that Washington has lost its way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely right about that. The two major political parties keep taking their turns in the majority. Each time becoming more strident and uncooperative then the last time. Collegiality is basically gone. Van Drew is the type of elected official, who at all levels of government has demonstrated that he can work with both sides of the aisle. There are no consensus builders left. Washington is presently toxic. In Van Drewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign biography, he makes it a point to do something you rarely see these days. He compliments the outgoing Republican Congressman. It reads as follows: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our district has been represented by two extraordinary people since 1975 - Bill Hughes and Frank LoBiondo,â&#x20AC;? says Van Drew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good reason for that. Our values are pretty straightforward. People should come before party differences.â&#x20AC;?

Van Drew demonstrates that he wants to be a Congressman for every resident in the District. He wants to do so in the best way. Not the worst way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a throwback to better times. Van Drew is also not afraid to condemn the extreme elements on both sides of the aisle. Congress is broken. It will be interesting to analyze what course correction the American people decide to make later this year. Kevin McCarthy. The RNCC was never going to actually support Grossman, yet the stark reality that they have officially dumped him is still very damaging.

TALENT

Shore Local Talent is Growing Greatness at Orchard South Wrestling Club

By Krystle J. Bailey

G

etting Jimmy Garrett to talk about his personal accolades in the sport of wrestling is challenging for the humble 31 year old from Egg Harbor Township. Garrett was the first Region 8 champion for E.H.T. High School, and the first EHT wrestler to reach 100 wins. He was a 3x District 32 champion, 2x Region 8 Finalist, 1x Regional Champion for EHT, 2x State qualifier, and placed 4th at the state level his senior year. He went on to wrestle at Rider University, Delaware State University, and Delaware Valley college.

For Garrett though, that chapter of his life only built him into the coach and mentor that he is today. The legacy that is being grown in the Orchard South Wrestling room is beyond what Garrett ever imagined it would be in the four years the club has been open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far at the sport of wrestling, I

think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve proven myself in the South Jersey area. That will always be there. This part is a totally different legacy now. When I get a kid that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how great he can be, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m challenged to bring out the best in him.â&#x20AC;? As a young wrestler, Garrett trained under the original Orchard Wrestling Club in Washington Town-

ship with some of the greatest wrestlers to pass through South Jersey. After suffering an injury in his college wrestling career that brought him back to EHT, he tossed around the idea of opening an extension of Orchard, now known as Orchard South. Garrett shares that owning a wrestling club was never part of his plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not something I ever thought I was going to be doing but my love for the sport manifested into this and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most rewarding experience.â&#x20AC;? First working in the high school gyms helping family and friends in the wrestling room, Garrett got a taste of coaching and was inspired to spend his time really investing in the local athletes. Garrett shares that his favorite part of the coaching experience has been watching the kids go out onto the mat and perform what he taught them in the practice room day in and day out. EHT star wrestler, Cody Dix, trains regularly with Garrett at Orchard

regardless of their ability or experience, to come and grow into their greatness. Aside from top notch coaching that is offered at Orchard, what the kids walk away with is a community that believes in them and an undeniable belief in themselves. They have a place where they can grow into not just the athletes that they have the potential to be, but the young adults that they were meant to be. Character and integrity run deep at Orchard and carries over into every young athlete that walks through the door. Local talent working together in brotherhood to build more

South and shares in the undeniable love of the sport and the family that comes with it. Dix, who has an inspiring and heartfelt story of family hardships during his high school wrestling career at EHT, credits Garrett and the club for the love and support that he needed to become who he is today. Dix began training under Garrett during his Freshman year of high school and throughout his career leading up to his run to states his senior year. “Jimmy brought so much passion for wrestling and inspired me to want to be great. This club to me is really a home away from home. I don’t want to leave that room. It’s just where I belong. This sport has changed me. Seeing these little guys look up to me. I’m beyond blessed to have met Jimmy. Being at Orchard taught me to give back and keep our little tree growing,” says Dix. Sit in the room on a Tuesday night and you will see young kids of all ages walk in, shake Garrett’s hand, joke around with each other, and then get to work on the mat. The camaraderie and brotherhood being built at Orchard is what keeps the kids coming back. Having one of South Jersey’s greatest wrestlers as their coach builds them to become incredible athletes. But what stands out the most at Orchard South is the growing family tree – the growing legacy. It’s the kids helping and encouraging each other and the older kids taking time to help the younger ones. It’s the pure heart being poured onto the mat in every practice. Orchard South offers the opportunity for every athlete,

The turnout was greater than the two previous slide events and helped further the agenda of the day; Amyloidosis awareness and fund raising. In addition, the food, branded as a Taste of Ocean City, helped welcome many newcomers to the fun and festivities. This after-party and slide took over the OC Water Park immediately following Surf Fest and offered guests private access to all water slides, dinner, drinks AND entertainment. There was a HUGE benefit auction to help the cause and SO MUCH MORE! These two events are just two of many on the summer schedule for the CMAF. The next event happens Friday, July 27 at the OCNJ Skate Park as part of the 2nd Annual Skate Fest. As with all events, prices and participation vary, but complete details on the 2018 season can be found online at www.

5 Great Albums By South Jersey Musical Artists By Ray Tyler

I

humbly consider myself to be South Jersey’s “Dick Clark.” Over the years I have witnessed, discovered, uncovered, introduced, and/or brought out on stage, several generations of great talent! I say that because the list I am presenting in today’s column is not a top 5. I could not list a top 500 of talent from here at the shore. This is however, my choice of 5 great albums available by CD and streaming, from people in and around our great area. You can believe there will be a follow up in the future. Garden State Pusher-Kill Wack Rappers

WARNING! This CD is straight up hardcore rap. Think Will Smith reversed in every way except one. Garden State Pusher loves his craft

and uses it to produce multiple streams of income. That is the only thing “Fresh Prince-ie” about GSP. Now, some people think I don’t like “hardcore” hip hop. Not true! I dislike lazy lyric hip hop. I am always down for music that pushes an envelope and takes me to the edge of somewhere new. That music can be hip hop, punk/grudge, rock, or spoken word. Kill Wack Rappers is the kind of music that is rooted in violence and danger, and stops just short of glorifying it as a lifestyle. Gina Roche-Thankfully

Ms. Gina Roche is one of South Jersey’s most precious resources. Armed with a guitar and her voice she has been fighting for change for more than 10 years. The change she wants to see is evident in her music and on the tracks of this CD. Based on her songs and performances, she finds nothing wrong with love songs and peace songs. If you believe that art and music can and do make the world better, then you should add Thankfully to your music library.

Angela Burton-Passion and Pain

Though this is the newest album on my list today, Ms. Angela Burton is a musical icon here in South Jersey. So many talented vocalists, from Melba Moore to Matt Newsome, have all worked with Ms. Burton. This album, Passion and Pain, is just a bonafide soul classic. This CD is going to make you dance. On some tracks you will dance out of your shoes, and on tracks like The Woman To Get Your Love, you might just dance to the bedroom (I’m just saying). Listen for special guest vocalists Michael Bailey, radio personality, and also former Atlantic City Mayor, Lorenzo Langford. Wincey Terry Bryant-Time To Say

I first came across Wincey Terry Bryant when she was a member of the acapella group True Image (their rendition of Drip Drop is heaven to your ears). Since that time she’s performed on Soul Train with Monie Love. Now she has released a Gospel CD that makes the good news of Christ a musical testimony. Time To Say, makes God the message of the music, and the music is beautiful. Barbara Sheree-Barbara Sheree The EP Barbara Sheree’s second CD, Love and Live, is a soul classic. This CD, Barbara Sheree The EP, is a 6 song collection of soul that is even more natural and organic than neo-soul. All my friends from the jazz community constantly ask me if I can get them a copy of this EP. Why? On

48

this EP release, Sheree connects with her band and her music, and the connection comes through the speaker like water through a spicket. The sounds flow naturally. Today Barbara Sheree is a staple in the neo soul community. However, I always tell her she should really give this EP a listen again, and make a new album of music that hits all the notes of Jazz and Blues. Still, if she never does. That will only make Barbara Sheree The EP all that more special as the years go by. Gina Thompson-NoBody Does It Better

The single The Things You Do Remix introduced the world to both Gina Thompson and super producer/rapper Missy Elliot. However, the entire album Nobody Does It Better is like a time capsule of 90s R&B, flavored with hip hop samples and influence. More importantly for me, when I see this CD in stores, it reminds me of that summer when Gina Thompson, from Vineland, was R&B royalty. I met her during her reign at the top and she elevated everyone she met to royal status. That’s when I learned a royal can either elevate or look down on a person. She made everyone feel her success was everyone’s success. So when it comes to being a great talent and a great person, that’s Gina Thompson and No One Does It Better.

ABS “R” US

By Gena Laielli

B

eing in the fitness industry for as long as I can remember, the number one thing my clients always want more of is abs! Abs are the first thing we look at, whether we are trying on a pair of jeans to see if we have that muffin hangover, or if we are “flat” enough to wear a two piece. I do it myself. Every angle in the mirror, pinching the midsection, then over to the sides. Abs are probably most important area that most people focus

blocks of muscles to get that lean look. Examples of good lean proteins are lean meats, fish, nuts, yogurt, and egg whites. Don’t be afraid of fat. Eating good fats will not make you fat! Avocados, olive oil, and nuts, just to name a few, are so so good for you. Dietary fats in your diet will keep insulin levels normal which prevents your body from gaining additional body fat. Now I’m not saying to go out and eat an entire jar of peanut butter, or an entire bag of pistachios, but adding these, in moderation, to your diet, will get you to that ab goal. By focusing on your diet, adding lean proteins, some good fats, good carbs, and leafy green vegetables, your body is going to turn into a 24-7 lean mean fat burning machine. You have just created your own “pill” and it’s not some miracle supplement that you went out and got; nor are you doing 57698035257384626 crunches and leaving with no abs and a neck ache; it’s you and your diet.

on when starting a fitness program. You always see the new “cool” trends like ten minute abs, some crazy fat loss ab pill, or suck in your stomach for ten seconds twenty times a day, and that will give you a six pack. I hate to break it to you, but the only way to get abs is by changing your diet. You can do a full session of just abs, but if you go home after that session and eat a bowl of fruit loops, or eat nothing for hours, you are just wasting your time and, of course, energy To get that sexy six pack you cannot overlook your diet. This is the single most important tool to use when you want abs. Stop falling for empty promises that others are telling you, and do it yourself by following these simple steps: diet and smart training will get you to your ab goal! First and foremost, remember this: abs are made in the kitchen! If you remember that, it will all fall into place. Protein. I cannot stress enough that protein will help you build lean muscle, as well as burn fat. Protein is a macronutrient and it’s valuable because your body uses a ton of calories just to break it down. It also helps form the building

Besides changing and focusing on your diet, stop using ab gadgets and doing thousands of crunches. Try doing some compound exercises like dumbbell lunges, push ups, pull ups, and barbell squats, just to name a few. Use smarter cardio methods that confuse your muscles, like burpees, plank jacks, sprints, a hit class. Anything with that burst of cardio, in addition to that awesome ab diet we talked about, will rev up your metabolism, burn fat, and get you cut. If you do smart cardio, change up your diet, and stick with it, you will see a difference in your midsection. Changes don’t happen overnight but a little change everyday will make a huge difference for what you want in the middle. Abs will shine on through if you do what you have to do!

Senior Moments A Senior’s Observations, Opinions and Rantings

By Charles P. Eberson

M

y wife and I were enjoying a pleasant dinner of scallops, salad, and long grain rice, after a relaxing day on our Ventnor beach, when she said lovingly, "Chuck, maybe you should get out of your comfort zone a little." Comfort zone? Now that I am in my later years, I feel that I have finally arrived in the eddy of the swirling white water that has been my life. Being out of one's comfort zone means different things to different people. No, I have not bungee jumped from extreme heights, nor have I run with the bulls in Pamplona, but I feel I have ventured far enough out of my comfort zone to suit me. In my opinion, there are two ways to feel oneself out of the comfort zone; mental and physical. Speaking in front of a large crowd for example, may be out of someone's comfort zone mentally. Being out of one's comfort zone physically may involve some sort of bodily risk or perhaps, discomfort at some level. I have surfed in waters that have been above my skill level, ridden my motorcycle flat out, raced my dirt bike on squirrely trails sideswiping a biker doing the same, been hit by a car, on crutches twice, a walker once, lost in the woods during a snowstorm, rafted down the Lehigh, the Gauley in West Virginia, and the Nantahala in North Carolina, where I was pitched out into a class IV rapid and run over by another raft, and endured personal tragedies too intimate for this column. Add to that, a couple years ago I got to spend Christmas and New Years Eve in intensive care. Apparently, my out

of comfort zone tends to lean towards the physical. According to Wikipedia, "a comfort zone is a psychological state in which things feel familiar to a person and they are at ease and in control of their environment, experiencing low levels of anxiety and stress. In this zone, a steady level of performance is possible." That sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Conversely, as stated in the publication Psychology Today, "But experiencing a little stress and anxiety now and then is a good thing, too. If all you ever do is strive to stay wrapped up in your little cocoon, keeping warm and cozy, you may be missing out on quite a lot---maybe no new experiences, no challenges, and no risks. And looking at the bigger picture of life, if you can’t step out of your comfort zone you may experience difficulty making change or transitioning, growing, and ultimately, transforming." Therein lies my dilemma. How and when do I venture out of the safety of my comfort zone and how far, when too far has its consequences? Will the rewards outweigh the consequences? I can say at this point in my life, that even the most negative of outcomes has resulted in some measure of personal growth. However, would I choose to do it all the same way? Probably not. In some instances, I didn’t have the luxury of a choice. But it is not always about choices, it is how one reacts to the outcomes of the choices. There is no question that in the future, either I am going to step outside of my comfort zone or I am going to be taken out of my comfort zone, hopefully the former. The one thing is certain; it will be a learning experience. Charles Eberson has been in the newspaper business for over 25 years.

be Lincoln said, “I will prepare myself and then my opportunity will come.” Which of course, it did for Abe. Opportunity also presented itself to one of our locals Chris Fantazzia of Margate after years of

preparation in his 22 year old life. He was accepted into the Philadelphia Local of Ironworkers right out of high school, then joined the Longport Volunteer Fire Department. In the meantime he worked in Margate Public Works in preparation for his shining moment of being sworn in as a Margate Fireman. We are all proud

of this homegrown contributor to the community. What works in life also works in fishing as Chris has spent most of his free moments over the past several years perfecting his skills on the Margate Bay. To the point where he can takes a couple of drifts and return with a four plus pounder. Abe knew his stuff! Flounder behind Margate are strong with a catch to keeper ratio of 21 to 1. Lots of shorts available providing action for anyone wetting a line. It is a particularly exciting time for kids on the bay with baits being chomped by 50 pound cow nose rays, stargazers, sea bass just now making an appearance and triggerfish. The surprise factor is always exciting. In addition, blue claw crab action is heating up with an oily combo of tough old fowl chicken necks and some bunker mixed in. Yummmmm....

A quick spin around the Margate Bay brought Chris Fantazzia his four plus pound flounder!

Create With Color

By Erin Daniels

C

olor is the transformative design tool that not only changes the look of your home, but can create a new and exciting vibe in your living space. A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to create a significant impact with color. Without moving a wall or a messy remodel, a well-chosen paint color can transform a dark, tiny room into an airy oasis or magically create a cozy gathering area from a seemingly cavernous space. It is scientifically proven that color affects our mood. So, in addition to choosing hues that simply please the eye, you should consider what pleases your heart and mind. Are you looking to cre-

ate a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the outside world? Then, lighter shades of cool blues, purples, and greens are proven to invoke a sense of harmony and calm. The deep earthy hues in warm shades of red and yellow will create a space filled with passion and energy. Keep in mind that while certain colors generally evoke the same reactions

in most people, shade and saturation can drastically change the character. For example, a pale shade of blue with a high light reflection value like Blue Horizon (SW6497) will create a peaceful, spacious feel. However, a rich hue, such as the Sherwin-Williams color of the month for July, Indigo (SW6531), can create a more sophisticated, intimate atmosphere. Even if large areas of color are not your style, keep in mind the subtle power of neutrals. Cool undertones of blue, violet or gray convey a cosmopoli-

tan atmosphere. Warmer neutrals with undertones of yellow and red complement more casual, informal decor. To incorporate small pops of color, choose colorful accessories and artwork that add interest and individuality to your decor while maintaining the calming effects of a neutral interior. Finally, remember that color preferences are subjective. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helpful to know the basic correlation between color and emotion, the effect color can have on the perceived space of a room and the latest trending colors. However, the deciding factor might just be your intuition. Trust your gut when you are drawn to certain colors and repelled by others. In the end, if you are still unable to narrow down the array of choices, consider hiring an expert. A professional color consultant will combine their expertise and color knowledge with your personal preferences to create a stunning personalized color palette for your home.
