Summer Fun in South Jersey! Living in South Jersey means that there is always something to do. We took a step back and found some of the coolest things that this area has to offer. South Jersey is so diverse and beautiful, it’s difficult to come up with a list of great things to do this summer without leaving out a ton of great events or attractions. We did our best to come up with some of the best of the best. You’ll see some classic must-do summer favorites, maybe a few new attractions you’ve never heard of, but surely you’ll find bunch of things to do before the summer is over.

Catch the BIG one!

There are too many places to list and too many fish to mention. No doubt, South Jersey is the place to live if you love to fish. Strippers, sharks, blue-fish, crabs... whatever your desired catch there’s sure to be a great place to catch ‘em. If you’re in need of some tips on what bait to use or where to go, visit Captain Dave at Absecon Bay Sportsman Center, he’s the local expert on all things fishy. 800-352-2524 • www.abseconbay.com _____________Continued on Page 16

Pub Notes by Sherrii Brentari

What Happened to The Gazette? I’m sure readers and advertisers alike are wondering “What’s with the new look of The Gazette.” “Why is it smaller and why is it now The Atlantic Shore Gazette?” And most of all... “Where’s Lou?” Here’s the scoop. There’s a new kid in town (sort of)... but the old kid is still around and kickin.’ The previous publisher of The Gazette of Atlantic and Cumberland Counties, Lou Mascolo has taken on a new challenge. He has turned the reigns over to SB and Company and moved on to a really exciting new publication... Jersey Sporting Life. Jersey Sporting Life is a publication devoted to sporting enthusiast in South Jersey. It’s Lou’s baby—and it’s packed full of everything Lou (and men everywhere) love... Sports, Guilty Pleasures like cigars, beer, gambling, sporting events, clubs, bars, and of course—Hot Girls. And I’m happy to say, he’s taking us along for the ride. Jersey Sporting Life is a joint venture and we’ll be with him all the way lending our talents and helping him get it off the ground. Make sure you check it out. In turn, Lou will still be involved in The Gazette, and he will continue to make sure we keep the paper on track and in-line with his original vision—providing the people of South Jersey with news, views, and everything a community newspaper should offer. Over the past year, I have enjoyed being both the editor and the creative director of The Gazette. I’ve done my best to keep providing the same kind of comprehensive content the readers deserve and I’ve gradually changed, and I hope improved, the overall look of The Gazette. That’s right... if you didn’t already know, I’ve been around for quite a while, and I’ve been loving every minute. Now it’s my turn to grab the wheel and drive The Gazette without Lou’s constant guidance. Of course, I’ll have a lot of help along the way. First, let me introduce you to my partner Jaime Long and my husband Edgar Reinhardt, who are fully commited to the mission and have endured sleepless nights, and endless hours on the road to get the issue out each month. I couldn’t do it without them or the other ther members of my team who have been working behind-the-scenes for the past year starting with my mother—Joanne Brentari, who will continue to be our watch-dog and Copy Editor, correcting grammar, writing headlines, and protecting the editorial integrety of The Gazette. My dear friends and colleagues Gail Rosenthal, Art Director; Patti Bradley, Sales Associate; Larry Berman, photographer; and even my son Sam (who helps with everything including: distribution, photo selection, stuffing envelopes, and making sure I have enough coffee to keep my sense of humor in tact). They have been with me from the start and are all pitching- in to make sure we stay the course and succeed in our mission to keep The Gazette alive. Thankfully, many of the Gazette’s regular columnists have agreed to come along for the ride. And, I’m happy to announce that Nance Piazza has agreed to take on the challenge of Community Editor. I’m really excited to be working with Nance on a different level and I’m sure she’ll be a big part of making the paper something our neighbors will look forward to reading every month. I’m pretty sure the new, compact format of The Gazette is an improvement over the older, longer, (really hard to fit in racks) version of the paper and as always, I’ll continue to keep the look and feel of The Gazette fresh and inviting to readers. As we continue to stretch and grow, please let us know how we’re doing. Tell us what you like, don’t like, and would like to see more of every month. Overall, this is your paper. Without the readers and advertisers there is no Gazette. Feel free to contact me directly. I’m always available by email and if your really lucky, and patient, you may even catch me on the phone. Thanks for your support, Sherrii Brentari, Editor and Publisher Editor@TheGazetteNJ.com • 888-444-0015 x100

Letter To The Editor Civil Service Reform “We the people” can amend our Constitution – our basic framework of civil rights and self-government – but we cannot rescind a personnel policy decision made decades ago and leave the Civil Service system. The voters of a municipality can choose to place their public employees into the Civil Service system. But once that decision is made, the State Statute mandates that future generations of municipal citizens are bound by it and can’t get out. In 1908, New Jersey became the sixth state to establish a Civil Service Commission and today there are 194 municipalities in the system. According to the Civil Service Commission, “from the very beginning, the Civil Service law mandated that appointments to and promotions in the civil service of this State, and…from the time of its adoption by any municipality of this State… shall be made only according to merit and fitness, to be ascertained, as far as practicable, by examinations, which as far as practicable shall be competitive.” While Civil Service’s goal may be to appoint and promote based on “merit and fitness”, the process has become so costly and burdensome that both management and employees’ hands become tied. The present Civil Service rules and regulations make it extremely difficult for a public manager to terminate non-productive employees. It is even more difficult to reward productive employees, to recruit the best qualified candidates or cross-train personnel to meet community needs. Municipalities have long sought the authority and ability to govern without constrains of antiquated Civil Service regulations, to manage employees based upon ability and merit, not merely time served. While length of service and loyalty are worthy accomplishments, they must be meshed with performance and efficiency. In order to properly deal with today’s economy, governments need to become leaner, more streamlined and more flexible, if they are going to be able to continue providing services that the public has come to expect. The current system under the Civil Service rules makes this almost impossible. In most governmental agencies, there are times of the year that are busier than others and, thus, it would seem logical and efficient to be able to have a talented employee be assigned to work in more than one department. Incredibly, under current Civil Service rules, this approach is not recognized. One effective means by which governments, especially local and county governments, can achieve efficiencie is through Shared Services also known as Interlocal Agreements, where two or more towns can get together to provide a service more cost effectively. Creating a shared service where one jurisdiction is under Civil Service and the other is not, can be so complex, in many cases the towns just give up. Middletown Township Mayor Gerard Schefenberger is all for changes that will unshackle governments from overly intrusive and burdensome State rules. “We want as many tools at our disposal as possible these days. We are anxious to be innovative, especially in the areas of Shared Services and cross training of employees. Allowing us the option of opting out of Civil Service would be very helpful. Even though we are ultimately not allowed to opt out, at a minimum there needs to be some fundamental changes to current rules and we need them fast.” We do not fight crime or fires nor educate our children like we did a century ago. We have transitioned our administrative office operations from pen and paper to desktop in order to be more efficient. We have not, however, updated our Human Resource system in 100 years. Now is the time to permit ourselves to divorce from an antiquated system. Very truly yours, William G. Dressel, Jr. Executive Director New Jersey League of Municipalities

Absecon Lighthouse Seen as Beacon for Reinvestment in Atlantic City

CRDA Connects Several Projects, Hopes to Leverage More Investment

ATLANTIC CITY - The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority today approved $5 million for the expansion of the Absecon Lighthouse District Park, expanding green space and removing incompatible uses. “The Absecon Lighthouse serves as a beacon for reinvestment in the Inlet section of Atlantic City. It strategically connects a number of individual projects to leverage the reinvention of a whole section of the city,” said James B. Kehoe, Chairman of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Kehoe explained that the Absecon Lighthouse District Park and South Inlet Transportation Improvement Project (Connecticut Avenue widening) help to connect the CRDA’s Northeast Inlet housing and community development projects with Revel Entertainment’s beachfront casino entertainment resort and existing condos nearby.

“All of these projects become stronger connected together than they are individually. They maximize existing investment and will help leverage additional investment in the Inlet and in Atlantic City at large,” commented CRDA Executive Director Thomas D. Carver, Esq. CRDA has invested in the renovation and restoration of the historic Absecon Lighthouse since 1995. During the intervening years, CRDA has invested over $5.5 million in restoring the Lighthouse itself, the Light Keeper’s house, acquiring land parcels, and capital projects. With the approval today, CRDA is committing $5 million for the Lighthouse District Park (www.abseconlighthouse. org) to acquire and prepare the land in the project area. CRDA has agreed to acquire all the land currently owned by the Jitney Association and to relocate their headquarters.

hundred free pumpkins will be given out at the main entrance to kids ten and under. Help is always needed at the festival and if you like organizing and judging contests, give us a call. YOU ARE NEEDED! Sponsorships and exhibitor information are available at www.sjpumpkinshow.com

DanceXplosion Rocks Stockton PAC

The Stockton Performing Arts Center was awash with neon and pastel clad tots this weekend as Hammonton’s Paul Morris DanceXplosion 9th annual production Inspiration took to the stage. But this was no ordinary dance concert. Among the pink ruffles, tutus, and jazz hands were the dancers of the adult jazz class which performed a Zumba number in full costume to the tune “I know you want me” by Pitbull. Mostly mothers of the little steppers in the company, the ladies have turned to a new trend that is sweeping the fitness industry and turning to contemporary music and dance steps to keep in shape instead of the monotony of gym equipment. Zumba, is a Latin dance based fitness routine created by fitness trainer Beto Perez. The colorful music and gyrations of the routine seem to help make all that sweating fun. “Paul [Morris] makes it exciting. The hour goes by so fast! In a traditional workout, I feel like I am watching the clock the whole

time. He challenges me, pays attention, and pushes me!” says Jennifer Runfolo, who takes the class with her sister Kimberley Rowe. The outfit required for the recital was another matter. “I told him those pants were a deal breaker,” Runfolo said with a laugh. This is Jennifer’s second recital with Paul Morris. Her Son ,Zack, also takes the company’s hip hop class. So, sequins and spandex aside, this new dance craze gives parents and children a hobby they can enjoy together for years. Judging from the athletic ability achieved by senior members of the dance troupe, dancing can really keep you in shape!

Mayor’s Corner by Mayor Chuck Chiarello

Neighborhood News Summer Concert Series in July and August

Commander Richard “Jingles” Ferrant leads the Memorial Day Services at Saw Mill Park in Richland Village. The beautiful weather lent itself to a larger crowd then normal in honor of our Veterans.

Mark your calendars for most every Wednesday night in July and August at Michael Debbi Park in Richland. There is good entertainment in your home town with big band sounds and toe tapping melodies. The Buena Vista Township Special Events Committee invites you to sit out under the stars and enjoy some affordable refreshments as you listen to our Summer Concert Series. All concerts begin at 7 pm sharp and last until 9 pm. They are performed at the Special Events Center Gazebo – rain or shine. If it rains the concert can be enjoyed under our large Veterans Pavilion. The following is a list of our Summer Concert dates and performers that are scheduled for the 2010 season: July 14 – Music by John Lolli, July 21 – John Clark Little Big Band, July 28 – The 4 J’s Band, August 4 –Lonnie Youngblood, August 11 – Bob Ferris Orchestra, August 18 – City Rhythm Orchestra, and August 25 – Buddy Gale Orchestra.

Collings Lakes Improvement Projects Move Ahead

The Township has awarded two contracts that will make important improvements in the Collings Lakes area. The first contract is for the continued improvement of Cains Mill Road from Malaga Road past Quigley Park. This is Phase III of a State Municipal Aid Road Grant for $170,000. In 2009, Phase I and II were completed from First Beach to Malaga Road for $300,000. Improvements included repaving, some sidewalk replacement, and resolving drainage issues. The new work should be completed by mid-summer. The second contract awarded by the Township is Phase I of a West Beach Road drainage project. The drainage in this area has created severe flooding problems. The Township hopes that additional money from FEMA will allow drainage work to be done all the way to the lake at First Beach. Phase I of this project cost approximately $175,000.

Buena Vista Township Deputy Mayor Teresa Kelly gives a hug to World War II Veteran and Milmay resident Joseph Giercyk during the Memorial Day Services held on Sunday, May 28th. Mr. Giercyk was involved in the invasion of Normandy and European campaigns. We should all be so proud of those who sacrificed their lives and gave their time to keep our country free. _____________________________________

CDBG Funds to Pay for Road Improvements

Approximately $152,000 in CDBG (Community Development Block Grant Funds) will be used to repave Rockefeller Lane in Newtonville and Wally Drive in Richland. CDBG Funds are monies we receive through Atlantic County from the State of New Jersey that are targeted for use only in certain income areas. The program helps fund paving of roads that would have been otherwise unaffordable at this time. _____________________________________

Vanessa Coward (Minor) of Newtonville receives a presentation from Deputy Mayor Teresa Kelly in honor of her winning a $1,000 scholarship and a computer notebook through the Comcast Scholarship Program. Vanessa received a Leadership Award from Buena Regional High School and is planning to go into nursing. The Township is very proud of this outstanding student.

Nothin’ Like Homemade!!

Cookouts at our house were great little feasts including the usual fare of hot dogs and hamburgers, potato salad, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob, and, most importantly, baked beans. While Dad was in charge of the grill, Mom did the prep and even made her own beans from scratch and they were creamy, spicy, sweet and just luscious. They were labor intensive, but well worth the effort. Later on, Campbell’s “Pork and Beans” came on the scene and they had very little resemblance in taste or texture to the beans that came out of that little brown ceramic crock my mom used to bake her beans. Everybody seemed to feel free to doctor up the canned stuff and they felt it was acceptable to adjust the flavors to make them edible; unfortunately, making your own pot of long-simmered beans went out of fashion. Now, there are so many varieties of baked beans out there to choose from, but I still think nothing surpasses making your own. Many years ago, my best friend in 5th grade at Sacred Heart, Renee Franzoi, gave me a giant stuffed Mr Bean “baked bean” character dressed in hat and tails. He was an “autograph hound”, popular back in the late 60’s and I still have him even though the signatures are faded ! Seems like I just couldn’t get away from the spectre of baked beans! This summer, I have promised myself to get out my mom’s brown bean pot and to make my own baked beans. I found this recipe hand-written and stuffed in one of her old cookbooks, and I just can’t wait to see if mine come out as good as hers!

Mom’s Baked Beans 1 pound dried great northern beans 1 large yellow onion, diced 1 cup beer - She used Guinness Stout 1 tbsp dry mustard 2 tbsp sweet pickle relish

6 strips thick cut bacon 1/2 cup molasses 2 tbsp light brown sugar 1 tsp sweet parprika salt

Preheat Oven to 250’ F *In a large stockpot over high heat, bring 2 quarts water to boil, add beans and cook for 5 minutes, spooning any scum off surface. Remove from heat, cover and let rest for 2 hours..then drain the liquid and let beans rest. Meanwhile in oven-proof skillet or dutch oven, cook bacon, drain and set aside, crumble when cool. Cook onions in bacon fat until golden and then add beer and scrape up any brown bits, add 2 cups water, molasses, mustard, brown sugar, paprika, bacon, the beans, and stir well. Cover and bake for 3 hours in a 250’ F oven, stirring every hour. After the 3 hours, add the relish, mix well and bake another 30 minutes or until beans are cooked through and sauce is thickened. Season to taste now with the salt. Serve immediately or the next day..they only get better with age!

Buena Historical Society by Gail Benson

How A Township Accomplished It

This is the headline of an article that appeared in the Bridgeton Evening News on January 8, 1915. It discusses an address by Charles Wray at a meeting of the Associated Boards of Education of Cumberland County. The topic was enforcement of the compulsory attendance law. Charles Wray had been a member of the Buena Vista Township Board of Education for 25 years, and he wrote the History of Friendship Church. The introductory paragraph follows: “Buena Vista Township is about 12 miles long, north and south, and has an average width of about five miles east and west. There is much unimproved land within its borders, fully one third of its area. There are no large towns, the largest being Minotola and Landisville, which are practically one town, and are existing because of the glass factory at the former place. It is an agricultural district and the farms are generally of small acreage. Sweet potatoes, peppers, peaches, grapes, berries of various kinds, pears and apples are mostly raised. As a general thing the farmer performs all the labor, assisted by members of the family. About one half of the population are of Italian nationality. There are nine schoolhouses in the district, and two additional rooms are rented this year, one for the vocational school recently established and one for a class of children three or more years behind in their grades. Twenty-six teachers are employed and a supervising principal. The number of pupils attending the district schools is close to 950.” This is a good picture of the Township in 1915, several years after the law was passed. Originally, the Board thought the law was OK for the cities, but not for Buena Vista. After investigating the matter further, they found that four-fifths of their State aid would be based on attendance. At that point, they had to come up with a plan. A supervising principal and a constable, who was appointed as truant officer, began following up on absences, sending notices to parents and threatening legal action. The supervising principal had been born and raised in the district, which made it difficult for him to enforce the laws, although he did the very best he could under the circumstances. The second year, a new supervising principal, who had no connection to the township or district, was appointed. The same plan was used regarding notices to offenders that was used in the previous school year, but the follow-up procedures were varied by arresting the most flagrant and persistent offender, prosecuting him before a justice of the peace and having him fined. There was no need to arrest another and, at the end of the school year, the record showed an increase of 27,000 days in attendance. If you remember stories about the truant officer, you can email us at BuenaHistorical@ gmail.com or contact us by regular mail at P. O. Box 114, Buena, NJ 08310. Don’t forget our family history project. Forms are available at http:// www.buenavistatownship.org Buena Historical Society meets on the third Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Buena Vista Township Municipal Building, Route 40, Buena. Please join us, our next regular meeting is Wednesday, September 15, 2010. In the meantime, join us at Buena Day.

BVT to Initiate Multiple Solar Projects to Generate Revenue and Save Energy Buena Vista Township Committee has spent a number of months working with our Township Engineer David Scheidegg and representatives of the ACUA to explore solar projects for our facilities. One project includes placing a bid to locate a solar farm on Township owned land adjacent to our Public Works Facility on Union Road. Bids would be received for long term leases of this land that would provide revenue for the taxpayers of Buena Vista. A separate project would receive bids for solar equipment to be located at Township Hall, the MLK Center and the Public Works Building, if feasible. This project would produce energy saving costs for these buildings. The construction of these projects would not cost Township taxpayers any money, but will generate revenue and energy savings. More details to follow in the future.

Yard Waste, Leaves and Branches Buena Vista Township residents can call our Public Works Department and arrange for pick-up of yard waste, leaves and branches. Our Public Works Department can be reached at 609692-4121. Leave a message with your name, address and phone number and arrangements will be made to collect your yard waste. These items are generally picked up every other Friday. There are certain areas of Buena Vista where the ACUA picks up yard waste, leaves and branches but, not during the summer months. Those regularly scheduled pickups will start again in September in designated areas. You don’t have to wait until September if you call in advance and schedule a pickup. Leaves must be bagged, branches must be in 4 foot bundles and other rules may apply. You can find complete information about our trash and recycling program on the information pages in the rear of the Buena Vista Township Annual Calendar. This information can also be found on our website at buenavistatownship.org. A leaf machine is used in certain densely populated areas of the Township during the months of November and December.

LoBiondo Applauds “Civilian of the Year” U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02), Ranking Member of the House Coast Guard & Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, today applauded Mr. James H. Smith of Linwood for receiving the 2009 Civilian Employee of the Year award from the U.S. Coast Guard. Serving as the Maintenance Mechanic Leader, WL-10, assigned to Air Station Atlantic City, Mr. Smith was presented with the honor at a ceremony in Washington this week. “Of the nearly 7,500 civilian employees of the Coast Guard nationally, Jim was chosen as he exemplifies the Service’s spirit. Locally, he is a symbol of the outstanding personnel stationed in South Jersey facilities who keep our region and our nation safe and secure each day,” said LoBiondo, a member of the Congressional Coast Guard caucus. “This is an outstanding honor for Jim Smith, his family, and his colleagues at Air Station Atlantic City. I applaud his service and congratulate him on his award.” “To say that Mr. Smith exceeds the expectations of a model Coast Guard employee would be an understatement. He is an invaluable team member who consistently demonstrates extraordinary personnel leadership, technical expertise, professionalism, initiative, and dedication to unit members and the local community,”

Rightly So by Jimmie Lee Hollis

The Tea Party Movement Jim Smith, Maintenance Mechanic Leader at Air Station Atlantic City, Honored in Washington

wrote Captain Paul Ratte, Commanding Officer of Air Station Atlantic City, in his nomination letter of James Smith. “Mr. Smith epitomizes the Coast Guard’s core values, and is among the very best of the service’s civilian employees.” Mr. James Smith was first stationed aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter DALLAS in the late 1980s and later at Coast Guard Air Station in Brooklyn. In 1998, when Air Stations Brooklyn and Cape May were consolidated into Air Station Atlantic City, Mr. Smith transferred to the new unit where he has remained since. He currently resides in Linwood with his family.

The national Tea Party movement is a collection of thousands of smaller and individual Tea Party groups found in almost every state in the union. This movement continues to grow and has become a powerful force. Tea Party patriots hail from small, medium and large towns and cities. They come in all sizes, ages, gender, race and ethnicity and there is also a diversity of political views among the patriots. What is illuminating for most Americans and surprising for those who oppose the Tea Party, is the ability of the patriots to put aside divisive political differences and unite under one major fiscal goal. And that goal is to encourage local, state and federal government officials to adhere to three beliefs: limited government, free markets and fiscal responsibility. Tea Party patriots eagerly support political candidates who embrace these beliefs and, so far this year, their support has made a difference in elections across the country. The national media and other enemies of the patriots work tirelessly looking for ways to cast aspersions on the movement but, so far, nothing has worked. This same media and the current administration in Washington ignores the fact that there is a strong belief in this country that many Federal and State incumbent politicians of both parties have lost their way and have forgotten about the people’s interests and concerns. Within this belief thrives and beats the heart of the Tea Party patriots. With the rise of the patriots, those who have felt disenfranchised, alone, helpless and beaten down by high taxes and an out of control government realiz that they now had a voice. They became encouraged and empowered through the Tea Party movement and some, for the first time, are standing up and being counted. The Democratic and Republican machines have one thing in common: both wish that the movement would go away, which is another way of saying to the American people, shut up and sit down. And as the mid-term elections draw closer, the fear inside these two machines and the media gets more intense. Most Tea Party patriots are aware of the very dirty and vicious tricks and tactics these machines can and will use against them leading up to the November elections. But the Tea Party patriots have the power and the backing of the American people, and that gives them the strength and determination to keep going. To be sure, not every candidate supported by Tea Party patriots will win, but the fact that so many new candidates are willing to come out and run against entrenched local incumbents and Washington insiders represents a clear victory for the patriots. Whether one likes or hates the patriots of the Tea Party movement, their power and influence cannot be denied. The failed attempts of the Obama administration and his partners in the media to demonize the Tea Party movement is a strong indication of the determination of the will of the American people, who refuse to be ignored and snubbed by those in power.

Washington Report by Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02)

Failure of Leadership in the Gulf, Anxiety Back Home

New government estimates state that 35,000 to 60,000 barrels of oil are leaking per day in the Gulf Coast. This environmental and economical crisis is two months old and counting. Despite lessons from past spills – including a 2004 spill in the Delaware River - there continues to be a failure of ideas from BP to stem the spill, repair the ecological damage and repay the economic costs. Unacceptably, there also continues to be a failure of leadership from the Obama Administration to control the entirety of the situation, prevent future incidents and reassure the American people, particularly residents of the Gulf Coast. As reported extensively, lack of supervision and oversight by the Minerals Management Service (MMS) contributed to the skirting of approved deepwater drilling procedures by BP, the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon rig and the resulting oil spill. This incident has raised legitimate concerns about the federal government’s ability to ensure that safety procedures are being followed at hundreds of other off-shore rigs and those in the permitting pipeline. For South Jersey and Delaware Valley residents, this certainly causes concern. As our area too readily recalls, in November, 2004, the ruptured haul of the Athos I oil tanker spilled 265,000 gallons of crude into our waters. In response, my colleagues along the River and Bay joined with me in introducing and passing bipartisan legislation – the “Delaware River Protection Act” - in an effort to help prevent future spills in the nation’s waterways. A key component of the 2006 law instructed the White House to update liability limits by July, 2009, fixing them to inflation for both tankers and off-shore structures, such as the Deepwater Horizon rig. As of today, the Obama Administration has yet to act fully in accordance with the law. Increasing liability limits and ensuring BP not only closes the Gulf leak, but pays for the extensive cleanup and damages caused by their oil spill, are shared goals by most Americans and Members of Congress. Those actions, however, are on the back-end of this crisis; immediate action at the highest level has been needed for the past two months to control this situation and minimize its damage. Despite President Obama’s vows that his administration has been engaged ‘since day one’ with an ‘unprecedented response’, the federal bureaucracy and lack of urgency persists. As Ranking Member of the Coast Guard & Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, I am aware of oil spill response vessels ready and willing to help that have yet to be called upon. This is wholly unacceptable, and I have petitioned the Secretary of Homeland Security to immediately mobilize these assets to mitigate further economic and environmental disaster in the Gulf. Likewise, recognizing the public offers of assistance that the U.S. has received, I continue to urge the Administration to develop a process which will identify specific needs that cannot be met with U.S. assets and manpower, and then work with our international partners to secure the resources necessary. Furthermore, I remain utterly dumbfounded and strongly opposed to the Obama Administration’s proposal to reduce the Coast Guard budget, despite their exemplary efforts in the Gulf Coast. As lead agency in charge of responding to oil spills, including our own Athos I spill, their task is no small feat. While cutting maritime anti-terrorism security teams in itself is misguided, the reduction of Coast Guard personnel and assets that are currently being utilized in the oil spill crisis is nothing short of a slap in the face to every Gulf Coast resident. As this Congress has yet to consider a budget, I urge President Obama to rescind his request to cut the Coast Guard operating and personnel budgets. Throughout this event, South Jersey has anxiously watched the developments unfold, for we too are a tourism-based economy with critical fishing resources that employ thousands of workers while supporting hundreds of seasonal and small businesses. We cannot help but deeply feel for the families and business affected in the Gulf Coast, as well as the lives and livelihoods lost by this preventable disaster. As tar balls invade their beaches and wetlands, we recount the mid-1990s when tar balls washed up on Cape May beach two weeks prior to the start of our tourism season. I remember meeting with local officials and small business owners, sharing in the fear that our tourism-based economy would be ruined for seasons. Fortunately, that fear was never realized in South Jersey. Unfortunately, it is increasingly the reality for communities along the Gulf Coast. It did not have to be this way, and further destruction to the environment and the economies it supports can and must be prevented.

LoBiondo Announces Fire Grant to Brigantine Fourth Award to City’s Fire Department Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today announced that the City of Brigantine’s Fire Department will receive $121,296 in federal funding from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program. More than $22 million has been awarded locally to 115 organizations in the 2nd District since the program began in 2001. “This is certainly welcome news for our fire departments and communities whose budgets are equally squeezed by this economic recession,” said LoBiondo, a member of the Congressional Fire Caucus. “I will continue to support critical programs like AFG to ensure our fire and emergency departments have the resources needed to keep our communities safe.” “This is awesome! With money as tight as it is with budgets, we can take care of something, quite frankly, we couldn’t afford before,” said Brigantine Fire Chief Frugoli. “It was an unexpected call from the Congressman today. We have been very fortunate through the federal fire grant program.” This is the fourth AFG award for the

City of Brigantine’s Fire Department, with previous awards of $24,455 (September 2001), $24,997 (November 2002), and $261,250 (August 2005). Today’s award will be used to purchase a new exhaust system and personal protective equipment for the firefighters. The Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program awards grants directly to fire departments and emergency services to support their efforts to protect the communities they serve. The Fiscal Year 2009 program will distribute $565 million to first responder organizations across the country to obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training, and other resources required to protect the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards. The Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) administers the program, in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration. For the last eight years, Congressman LoBiondo’s office has hosted local seminars for area fire departments to highlight the benefits of this grant program and assist with the application process. The Fiscal Year 2009 program received 19,786 applications nationwide.

CHIROPRACTIC…

It’s not about your back. It’s not about your pain. It’s about your Life!

Near the end of his life comedian George Burns said, “If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” There are 70,000 people over 100 living in this country today, and the U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by the year 2050 there will be 4.2 million. When today’s centenarians were born life expectancy was only 50, so they were able to double their life expectancy! When most of us were born life expectancy was in the 70s so, if we double that, we could expect to live 140 to 150 years. In fact, researchers tell us that the human body should last at least 150 years, and that there may truly be no upward limit on longevity. This was reported in Discover magazine in November 2003. The question is if we live this long, what kind of quality of life will we experience? Many of today’s elder generation are living in wheelchairs and nursing homes. They didn’t know they would live this long, didn’t take care of their health and are suffering as a result. This begs the question, what is Health and how do we maintain it? Dorland’s Medical Dictionary defines health as “a state of optimal physical, mental and social well-being, and not just the absence of disease and infirmity.” Isn’t that different from what most people think? Health is really being the best you can possibly be: physically, mentally and socially. Feeling better today and rotting away tomorrow is not wellness thinking, and not preparing for the future. The keys to a long and healthy life are Good Eating Habits, Exercise, Proper Rest, Positive Mental Attitude, Detoxification and Complete Nerve Supply. All are necessary for complete health. This article deals with the Nerve

System component and Nerve Supply. The nerve system is the body’s electrical and communication system; it is the body’s connection which allows the brain to communicate with all the tissues and organ systems of your body. The brain and nerve system controls the function of all the organs and tissues of the body and the functioning of the immune system. Everyday living impacts the nerve system which is encased in the backbone. When the spinal column is not moving properly and not in proper alignment, it causes interference to the nerve supply. This is called Vertebral Subluxation (VS). Three types of stresses affect the backbone and nerve system causing VS. These are physical, mental and chemical stresses that overcome the body’s resistance. Chiropractic examinations detect VS and chiropractic spinal adjustments correct VS and restore nerve supply. This allows your body to function at its optimum. Not correcting VS results in interference to the nerve supply, reducing your body’s level of functioning. Your immune system may be compromised leaving you susceptible to things like allergies, colds, flu, etc. Over a period of years or a lifetime, this lower level of living could lead to much more serious problems. Chronic diseases like cancer and heart attacks are known to have a history of 20 years or more. This is your wake-up call. The question is will you do something about it, or do you have to wait for a crisis? And if so, will it then be too late? You may be wondering if you have VS? As a reader of our healthy living newsletter, we’re giving you a special opportunity to find out.

Whip It Out! by Chef Amanda Nahas

Summer Snack Tips Many parents feel it is a daunting task to prepare snacks for their children, especially in the summer. It isn’t because snacks are difficult to make. It’s because snacks need three components: they must be nutritious, healthy and most importantly, attractive. Getting a snack to contain this trifecta is not easy. Add the summer season and days at the beach, pool, or lake, where ice cream and other less nutritious foods seem abundant, and the challenge grows exponentially. How does a parent get a child to eat healthy foods like fruits and vegetables when all he/she wants is fries, chips and candy? With some planning, some healthy living tips, and kid friendly recipes, your family can be on their way to healthier summer eating. Dips can be your ‘go to’ food when trying to get your children to eat healthy. Easy to make, they can go with fruits and vegetables and are great for outdoor summer fun at the beach, pool, or even camping. So many different ingredients can be used to make a yogurt based dip, which makes dips very versatile, easy to make and healthy. Add paprika, garlic powder and fresh herbs to yogurt to make a nice vegetable dip for carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, etc. For a fruit dip, add honey and cinnamon to yogurt and eat the fruits of your choice with it. You can even add the fruit directly to the yogurt and have the whole thing as a snack. Add salsa and low fat shredded cheese to plain yogurt and eat with multi-grain tortilla chips or baked multi-grain pita chips. This is a healthy alternative to nachos. Using yogurt is very easy, since the container is already chosen for you. Plus yogurt, in general, travels and holds well in a cooler. Here are other quick easy foods and tips for you to take to the beach: 1. Combine handfuls of crackers (goldfish, cheez-its, etc.) almonds, dried cranberries or raisins for a beach friendly trail mix. 2. Plain air popped popcorn sprinkled with cheese. 3. Fruit and cheese kebobs: use cubes of cheese and chunks of apples and put them on a skewer alternating the cheese and apples. 4. Fruit wands: alternate apples, pears, pineapples, grapes or any other fruits you like on skewers. 5. Instead of using mayonnaise for sandwiches, substitute hummus. It tastes good with ham, turkey, and roast beef. Hummus can withstand the heat of the sun better than mayonnaise and is less risky when it comes to spoilage.

All of these snacks can be put in Ziploc bags and will travel well in either a cooler or an insulated bag. Snack Tips provided by Chef Amanda Nahas of Whip It Out Personal Chef Service Contact Chef Amanda at www.WhipItOut.net

A Day At The Beach

We all know, sometimes a day at the beach with kids can be no “Day at the Beach.” A beautiful, fun-filled, family outing by the seaside can quickly turn to mass chaos if just a few necessary items are forgotten, lost, or ruined by the sand we all love to hate. As fellow beach lovers we’re sure you’re constantly on the hunt for new products to make those family beach trips less painful. Check out a few of our favorite family friendly beach products... and ask yourself “What will they think of next?”

Natural Bug Repelant Mom’s love it—Green-Heads hate it, all natural melaleuca oil keeps bugs off babies at the beach with no toxic chemicals.

10 Piece Water Park Starter Set The Water Park was a huge hit on Brigantine beach. We’ve never seen a toy attract so much attention. Not only did it keep our Jersey Shore kids busy for hours, but there was actually a line of beach buddies lined up for their chance to build the next mini-water park. The set can also be used for backyard play and worked well with both sandboxes and rock-piles. Children used along with toy trucks and constructed a miniconstruction site! We liked the versatility and were please to find a toy that inspires creativity and proved to be a great tool for teaching cause and effect and fostered learning through play. Designed by HABA® of Germany. Available at www.MagicCabin.com ($79.98)
