Back to School An Unconventional Approach By Nance Piazza, Community Editor

“Mom, what’s this?” my 14 year old asked, studying the bus-pass postcard hanging on the front of the fridge with his class schedule still in its envelope. “That’s your stuff for school,” I said, and I went about my business. There was a brief silence, then he yelled out, “Well, can I look at them?” “Go ahead,” I replied. “They’re yours,” and that’s all I said. And that is all I intend to say. If I could give parents any advice about preparing kids for back-to-school, I would say, keep your mouth shut. Not one word about school. No “Are you excited?” questions. No sharing lame personal stories from school days a million years ago. No constant inquires of “Do you have everything?” and questioning their answer with an “Are you sure?” __________________________________ Continued on Page 17

Dear Editor: Having grown up in Atlantic City and working in my family’s business -- Russ Miller Record Shops, I know the plight of those that had big dreams for Atlantic City’s future and the hope for the casino industry. I remember the efforts to bring in casino gambling during a time when Atlantic City was falling apart and tourists were losing interest in visiting us. While the idea is not a new one to take over Atlantic City, in whole or in part, I must give Governor Christie full credit for taking the bull by the horns in acting on a proposed Entertainment District controlled by the State of New Jersey. I remember when Senator Jim Whelan spoke out on this issue in the past and did not get the support he needed to make it happen. Having spent the first half of my life on the eastern side of Atlantic County I know the frustration of decades of corruption, wasteful spending, and sometimes just plain bad judgment. The state development of a public/private partnership with all the casinos and government entities involved can only lead to a brighter future in these difficult economic times. Sincerely, Mayor Chuck Chiarello, Buena Vista Township Cell: 609-513-0569

Local Casino Turns to acts of the past to spice up the future

Page 5

(Below) WAR, the original street band, heads up the Hippie Fest Tour.

by Michelle Tomko

As evident from all the cement autographs of stars that adorn the boardwalk entrance, Resorts Casino Hotel strives to provide great entertainment along with gambling. Its discotech Boogie Nights is celebrating Madonna and Michael Jackson’s birthday as well as welcoming former wrestler Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka this month. Blasts from the past are in town and they still have presents to give us today. Saturday August 7th was no exception when Hippiefest 2010 came to town. Upon entering their concert venue, Superstar Theater, one is reminded of that “old Atlantic City” charm. Periwinkle cut out booths, cocktails, candles on tables, tablecloths and ushers in suits. You can’t

help but remember Don Rickles and “old blue eyes” himself played here. The line up for Hippiefest was made up of all headliners. Any one of the acts surely earned the price of admission. Shockingly too, the concert went way over the ninety minute time limit casinos give their acts (as they want you back at the tables A.S.A.P.). This one lasted over two hours. Badfinger front man Joe Molland opened things with a few songs with the house band. He still has that soft, smiley, Beatles-esque sound. Next came that famous friend of C.C. Ryder Mitch Ryder, who is still bad to the bone. But my favorite performers of the night were the guys of Rare Earth. You may know them from a little song “Papa Was a

ALL-BEETHOVEN CONCERT By Bay-Atlantic Symphony On August 28 Closes Avalon “Symphony By The Sea” Series; Also August 25 Concert Lecture

Experience the power and majesty of Ludwig van Beethoven’s music, as the Bay-Atlantic Symphony closes the 2010 “Symphony by the Sea” summer series of concerts sponsored by the Avalon Free Public Library on Saturday, August 28, at 7 p.m., at the Avalon Elementary School, 235 32nd St., Avalon, NJ. The second of this two-concert series, conducted by Bay-Atlantic Symphony Music Director Jed Gaylin, will be entitled “Rescues, Royals, and Renegades.” This all-Beethoven program will feature three of the composer’s most thrilling, popular works. The exquisite artistry of Italian pianist Enrico Elisi will be featured in the royal and resplendent Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 73, “Emperor.” The last and most famous of Beethoven’s five piano concerti, it was dedicated to Archduke Rudolf, the composer’s pupil and patron. Opening the program will be the exciting Leonore Overture No. 3, Op. 72a, one of the four overtures Beethoven composed for his rescue opera Fidelio. The concert will conclude with the crisp, novel, and brilliant Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 36. Tickets are free and available to the general public on Thursday, August 12, from the Avalon Free Public Library, 235 32nd St., Avalon. Elisi enchanted area audiences with his appearance with the Bay-Atlantic Symphony at the 2008 Cape May Music Festival. Now entering its 27th season of providing classical music concerts, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony performs concerts and educational programs in Cumberland, Atlantic, Gloucester, and Cape May counties. In addition to being the orchestra-in-residence of Avalon’s “Symphony by the Sea” series, it has been the orchestra-in-residence of the Cape May Music Festival since 2003. It is also the resident orchestra of the Guaracini Fine and Performing Arts Center at Cumberland County College, Stockton College Performing Arts Center, and Pfleeger Concert Hall at Rowan University. The Symphony will open its 2010-11 season with “Classical Mystery Tour”—a gala symphonic tribute to The Beatles—on Sunday, September 26, at 3 p.m., at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in Atlantic City. For more information on the “Symphony at the Sea” series, call the Avalon Free Public Library at (609) 967-7155 or visit the library’s website at www.avalonfreelibrary.org. For more information on the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, call (856) 451-1169 or visit the orchestra’s website, www.bayatlanticsymphony.org.

Rolling Stone”. Seeing as they have been at it together for decades now, its no surprise how in sync they sound. Beautiful. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jack Bruce was a real show stopper as well. “It’s amazing to be here. It’s amazing to be anywhere.” He said with a grin after his first number. In the final act, WAR asked us “Why can’t we be friends?” and took us on a “little trip” in the hippest of all vehicles the Low Rider.

These iconic acts really do get better with age. You can see how comfortable they are on stage after all these years. They sink into a song how we mere mortals sink into our favorite easy chair. Nothing throws them. Even when cymbals fell over and a roadie had to come on stage several times to fix them, War never missed a beat. It was amazing to see these legends at work.

Buena Historical Society by Gail Benson

Who Was Daniel Mcclure? A Philadelphia Inquirer article dated November 29, 1910, reads: Boy Brought Down Big Buck. Dateline was Newfield, N. J. Earl Surran, 16, son of E. T. Surran, killed a four-snag buck near Newtonville. He was accompanied by his great-uncle Daniel McClure, of the one-time famous “Doughty’s Tavern.” Mr. McClure is 92 years old, and the oldest deer hunter in the State. Doughty’s Tavern is a Buena Vista Township icon. How does Daniel McClure fit in? Census records tells us Daniel was living in Buena Vista Township in 1910. He is living on Tuckahoe Road with son David, a carpenter, and daughter-in-law Jennie. In 1900, he is in the Township on High Street and his wife, Mary, is still alive. Prior census records in 1880, 1870, and 1860 list Millville as his residence. In 1870, William Doughty, 22, and Emeline Doughty, 19, were living with him. Is she Daniel’s daughter? Is that the Doughty connection? In both 1860 and 1870, the McClure’s lived next door to a William Doughty and his family. The 1910 census lists Daniel being born about 1818 in New Jersey; his parents were born in Scotland and spoke Gaelic. This is the only time that fact is recorded. In 1880, parents were listed as born in Ireland; other censuses indicate they were born in NJ. Newspaper research shows that Daniel died in January, 1914, leaving four sons: David, Daniel, John, and George. Burial was in Union Cemetery, Mays Landing, upon arrival of the 11:27 train from Millville. Bridgeton Evening News reported him near death the previous September and did a lengthy article on him from information provided by a relative. This information is taken from the article: He was born August 25, 1818, in Maurice River near Port Elizabeth. The oldest of five who were all still living; the youngest was 87. His history centers around Doughty’s Tavern, which he has owned for nearly 25 years. In 1852, he built the first house in Egg Harbor City, known as Old Cedar Bridge. He is the son of John McClure, non-commissioned officer under Washington, who also served in 181213. Dan’s hunting prowess is discussed, and he is credited with fighting, along with two dogs, the last bear in the county about 1858. On March 4, 1882, he moved into Doughty’s Tavern and had been there ever since. The hostelry was forgotten, once the game laws were changed. The article indicates that it is now leased to an Italian farmer. This information does not tell us how he became involved with Doughty’s Tavern, but we do get a picture of his life. A 1904 article refers to him as “Colonel” Daniel McClure. His siblings lived well into their 90’s, and Dan’s wife was 94 when she died in 1904. If you have information about Daniel McClure, his family, or Doughty’s Tavern, 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.

It Ain’t Easy Being Me by Big Rick Cahall

Summer T.V. and The Sofa King Blues The temps have been hot, but the TV choices mid summer have not. That is true if you stick to the big networks. Click over to the cable channels or pay channels to have the summer watching pleasure you’re after. Unless it’s that Divorcee in Apt. 3G. ( Yes , he went there ..) Rescue Me on FX is one of the 5 best written series on TV as they enter their 6th season. Denis Leary is aging well in his 20 year career. The Tommy Gavin character is so complex and dark, it’s intoxicating and addictive (duh). If you haven’t watched Rescue Me, then you don’t GET to watch it now. If it’s taken you six seasons to give it a try, just go pack sand cause you’re clueless and that’s why you haven’t tried it. But Rick, that seems a little harsh don’t ya think? Well as Denis says, “ Life sucks, wear a helmet! “ (Sorry it’s all this heat rash … it’ll get better, not nicer, just better.) Want more steamy, brutally sexy, horror filled fun with bloodsucking freaks ?? No, it’s not “Hot In Cleveland” people... But it is TrueBlood on HBO Sundays at 9pm. O.M.G. kiddies. This bloodlust series is erotic, shocking, and full of deviance. Kind of like FOX News huh? I loves me some TrueBlood man. In fact, I just love HBO in general. Just think of this list of Series and/or Mini-Series: The Sopranos, Dream On, Larry Sanders Show, Deadwood, Sex & The City, Band Of Brothers, Generation Kill, The Pacific, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Real Time w/ Bill Maher, etc… I mean really, are you kidding me? Unbelievable history there. And speaking of HBO, the boys of summer are back !! Not the Phillies. It’s Entourage, man. A real Man’s answer for Sex & The City. Great Series, great writing, great cast, and you get Drama twice. Real fans get that and the others follow previous instructions above! LOL… Ahhh texting bleeds into keys… Being a fledgling stand-up comic myself, I have been glued to Last Comic Standing on NBC (I usually abhor censored, lame network TV except for anything by Seth MacFarlane ). My favorite so far is Mike DeStefano. He is dark, caustic, and naturally funny. He has no idea how funny he is. Go Mike !! And I would be remiss to not mention probably the Best damn show on TV, starting back up Sept. 7th on FX … Sons Of Anarchy is 100% Bad Ass folks. I am salivating getting ready for Season 3. The fact they were SNUBBED again by Emmys is a sad state of affairs. Another amazing array of actors and phenomenal writing minute to minute. Oh, I have waited ever since the credits were rolling on Season 2 to get back into Charming and the boys of SAMCRO for the start of Season 3. Yesssss. In closing, I would like to say it was a long season of Deadliest Catch with the show dedicating so much time to the unfortunate passing of Capt. Phil Harris. So sad to experience the death of someone you never met but were still touched by it. Phil and the rest of the Alaskan Crab Fleet are some of the toughest SOB’s you can imagine, almost fearless at times. To watch these rugged bad asses with huge broken hearts was captivating. Looking forward to next year out on the Bering Sea, 178 Miles NorthWest of Dutch Harbor. R.I.P. Phil Harris. You lived; you really lived man.

Whip It Out! by Chef Amanda Nahas

Grill Baby Grill We are well into BBQ season and, by now, maybe you are tired of the same old dynamic duo: hot dogs and hamburgers. Although they are favorites among so many people (otherwise, they wouldn’t be the dynamic duo), we could all use a change now and then, especially when we are feeding our families. Changing the menu and making barbecuing a family activity can create a whole new pleasurable experience for you and your kids. With a few minor changes, you can turn barbecuing into kid friendly fun! Getting your kids involved with the menu planning and preparation will allow you to spend time together as a family. Encourage your kids to experiment, allowing them to discover new foods and flavors. By letting them play an active role, it will boost their confidence and they will feel like they are contributing to the family meal. This will also enable you to spend time as a family and create new memories and traditions. There are many alternatives to hot dogs and hamburgers. The fun part is coming up with them. Most of the time we associate grilling with meats, but pizzas, tacos, kebabs, fruits and vegetables can open the door to a whole new family fun menu for you and your family. Grilling pizza can be really fun for the whole family. Get ready- made pizza crusts, like Boboli, pita bread, English muffins or whatever you like to use. Have your kids make up the toppings for the toppings bar, and set them out on the table. If using a thick pizza crust, like Boboli, brush with olive oil on both sides and grill until desired crispiness. Add sauce, cheese and whatever toppings you are using. For other pizza bases, adjust grilling time according to the thickness (pita will take less time, as will flatbreads). For grilled tacos, have your kids make up the toppings and place them out on the table. You can grill chicken, beef, or fish and flavor them however you want. Use taco seasoning, Cajun seasoning, or whatever your family likes. Grill the meats, shred or cut them and create your tacos! Using skewers on the grill can also be fun for your family. Make sure you soak wooden skewers before putting them on the grill. Use a combination of meats, fruits and vegetables on them before grilling. Cut up the food and set out the ingredients for the kids to assemble. Let them be creative with the foods and combinations. As far as flavors, anything goes! Traditional barbecue sauce, Teriyaki sauce, sweet and sour sauce are some examples of things to use. You can also take bigger pieces of fruit and put them on the grill. Pineapple, peaches, and melon are delicious on the grill. You can grill the fruit and serve them with cakes and or ice cream. Remember, this is more about time with your family than food. Get your kids involved, encourage them to be creative and make new family memories and traditions.

(so smart ones leave a will)

By Jim Carney, Atlantic County Surrogate

Dead men do write checks. Often they are for thousands - even tens of thousands - of dollars. They are cashed, and no one is the wiser. Charles Dickens wrote, “What lawsuits grow out of the graves of right men every day: sowing perjury, hatred, and lies among near kindred, where there should be nothing but love!” Generally, probate files are located at the Surrogate’s Court and are a matter of public record. They tell the stories of our neighbors, relatives and friends. They can reveal our dirty laundry, family squabbles, and, as Charles Dickens wrote, “our perjury, hatred, and lies.” These files are the life stories of real people, whether simple folk, celebrities, the known and unknown. They may leave behind meager estates or millions of dollars in assets. In New Jersey, the statutes and laws govern how and to whom our estates are to be administered. Absent a valid last will and testament, the decedent’s assets are distributed by the laws of intestacy. Listed by Forbes Magazine as one of the 400 wealthiest people in the world, when Yung-Ching Wang passed away, he left an estate valued at approximately $8.5 billion dollars. Yes, that’s “billion” with a “b.” His estate is currently being battled out in New Jersey courts because he left no will. In Atlantic County, “David” died and left no will. Along with assets gathered over a lifetime, including an oceanfront condominium, he left a $41,000 balance in his checking account. His heirs never completed the administration process of his estate at the Surrogate’s Court. Over

time, “David’s” checking account became overdrawn. Valuable personal items disappeared, as often happens when no one is looking upon the death of a successful individual, and the condominium went into foreclosure. One might wonder how a dead man could write checks from his grave in significant amounts enough to evaporate a relatively large sum of money. In “David’s” case, the Surrogate’s Court was able to identify and establish evidence of transactions that showed how and to whom “David” (after his death) wrote $41,000 worth of checks. The matter is now under review for disposition. And no, “David” did not write those checks himself. Just as forensics and modern medical techniques identify coldcase victims and perpetrators in crimes, the Surrogate utilizes similar advanced methods and techniques to identify financial and probate irregularities and fraud. Eight people will die today in Atlantic County, 56 people this week, 240 people this month and almost 3,000 people this year. Their stories, rich and poor, will be told in their wills and in the administration of their estates. The Surrogate and his staff are very willing to provide assistance on all matters affecting estates, guardianships and similar probate matters, New Jersey laws, rules of the court and case law involved in this area. The Surrogates office is open to all and available to assist every member of the public in this regard. Email Jim Carney with questions at: jimcarneyforsurrogate@gmail.com

Cooling Off... August, the dog days of summer, days when the heat just shimmers off the ground, air conditioners work overtime, anybody lucky enough to have a pool in their back yard is, somehow, blissfully forgetful of all of the work that went into getting that water so blue! I do not have central air in my little house. I have to rely on window units, which drive me nuts all summer - I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand the noise! I have to pretend, every night, that I am on a plane to Venice just to fool myself into falling asleep! One year my sister Linda gave me a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chillowâ&#x20AC;? for Christmas, and I never imagined that gift would be the lifesaver of the summer! It really cools you off and helps with getting a good nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep! The other thing that really cools me off in the summer is a big bowl of ice cream! This year, Linda found Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Key Lime Pieâ&#x20AC;? ice cream and to say it is sublime is a great understatement... it was refreshing, cool, and tastes exactly like Key Lime Pie. Pies are my absolute favorite desert, and I am not even going to tell you how to make one... just find Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s !! I always wanted to make my own ice cream, and here is a special little dessert from Giada De Laurentiis - a cool and creamy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Semifreddoâ&#x20AC;? Italian ice cream that is easy to make and a great way to end a summer meal.

CITRUS SEMIFREDDO *3/4 cup sugar *Pinch of salt *8 large egg yolks *Zest of 1 lemon and Zest of 1 lime *3 tbsps freshly squeezed lime juice *1 cup heavy cream (get a bag of limes from Santoriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and use *2 ounces amaretti cookies crushed the remainder for a Gin & Tonic!) ( about 10 small cookies) * 2 tbsps limoncello Spray a 9 x 5 x 3 inch metal loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line the pan with plastic wrap, allowing the excess to hang over the ends and sides. Whisk 1/2 cup of the sugar, the egg yolks, lemon juice, lime juice, limoncello and salt in a large metal bowl to blend. Stir in the zests. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Whisk the egg mixture until it is thick and creamy and the mixture coats the back of a spoon-about 160â&#x20AC;&#x2122;F-takes about 5 minutes. Set the bowl of custard into another bowl of ice water to cool completely. Beat the cream and remaining 1/4 cup sugar to soft peaks and, using a large rubber spatula, fold cream gently into cooled egg custard. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan, fold over hanging plastic wrap to cover, and freeze until frozen, at least 8 hours. To serve, unfold plastic, unmold the semifreddo onto a platter and sprinkle the amaretti cookies on top and enjoy!

Mayor’s Corner by Mayor Chuck Chiarello

Firemen’s water barrel fights are a favorite activity at the Annual Buena Vista Independence Day Celebration.

Neighborhood News Tax Bills are in the Mail

The annual watermelon eating contest is always a highlight of Buena Vista’s Independence Day Celebration.

Francesca Kesnig sings the National Anthem to open the festivities at the BVT Independence Day Celebration held on Saturday, July 3rd.

The tax bills have finally been mailed out in Buena Vista that reflect the results of this year’s reevaluation. The process has been a long and expensive one involving reviewing every property in our community. The reevaluation cost almost $500,000 and is required by state law. The values of our properties have greatly increased since the last reevaluation which was done some 20 years ago. Just because the value of your home has doubled during those 20 years does not mean that your tax bill for 2011 will be substantially greater. Since all the homes and land values in the Township had to be refigured, along with tax appeals being filed, the exact amount of tax bills has been nearly impossible to determine. Hopefully, when your new bill arrives the questions will finally be answered.

BVT Yard Waste Pickup Starts Again in September

Yard Waste will be collected in Collings Lakes, Edgewood Acres, Country Club area, DeRosa Drive and Cedar Gardens by ACUA on the following dates: September 3 & 17; October 1, 15 & 29; November 12 & 27; and December 10 & 24. Please Note: Yard Waste pick-up in all other areas of the Township must be pre scheduled. You must call our Public Works Department at 856-692-4121 so that pickup may be scheduled in advance. Pick-up will be on the above listed dates. Only a reasonable amount of yard waste properly cut, bundled or bagged will be accepted. Excessive amounts of yard waste will be the responsibility of the property owner to dispose of.

Trash/Recycling Contract Saves $50K per year for BVT

Effective August 3rd all Township trash, recycling, and yard waste will now be picked up by the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA). The Township Committee voted on a new contract that will save our community $50K per year for the next five years. Trash will be picked up on the same days as usual, however, there is a change in recycling. Recycling will now be picked up on the same day that your trash is picked up but every other week. A new schedule of pickups are available at Township Hall or can be printed from the Township website.

Report Illegal Dumping To Us!

Illegal dumping costs Buena Vista Township taxpayers money. Your eyes can make a difference in helping us enforce our zero tolerance policy. If you see or think something is happening call: 856-6924121, 856-697-2100 or 609-561-5650. Continued from Page14 ------------------------------

Wayne and Sharon Corsiglia spend time at the Run4Ricky BBQ at Michael Debbi Park. They represent BVT EMS and maintain a presence at many community events. Wayne and Sharon are among the hundreds of volunteers that provide fire and rescue services to our community. Atlantic County Surrogate Jim Carney made a presentation at the July 26th televised Township Meeting. Mr. Carney spoke about services offered from the Surrogates Office. Having experienced a major loss in his own family recently he was able to speak first hand on how important it is to have a will and know the options that you will face at the time of your death or a family member.

Where do the locals go to eat? That’s the question people ask when they want to find really a really good place to eat. You don’t have to look far in Richland. Just walk into King’s Deli, next to the Post Office and across from the General Store on Rt. 40, and you’ll find a counter full of good ol’ boys who meet up there almost every day. Dawn King, the owner, knows to brew plenty of coffee for her morning regulars. A lively group of hometown gentlemen who gather at the window tables. They are most of the surviving members of a 1947 baseball team photo posted on the far wall: Jerry Zappariello, John Cheli, Bobby Ferrari, Virg Fanucci, Richie Ferrari, and John Bucci. Why do they show up so faithfully? “Great food!” “Great service, it’s a friendly place.” “Good coffee!” “It’s the best deli in town!” An obvious trait of King’s Richland Deli is its community focus. Jerseys and t-shirts from Buena High, St. Augustine Prep, JP Cleary and Richland Fire Rescue garnish the walls. There’s a small book exchange shelf above the newspaper rack. And best of all, actual home cooking is underway. “Tonight we’re having fried pork chops and mashed potatoes with a vegetable,” explained Dawn King. “I try to give people the option of ordering a healthy meal for their family,” she said. “You could get an individual meal for about $5.50 or serve four for about $25.” The homemade dinner special menu changes most nights, but typical offerings include meatloaf with potato and vegetable and chicken pot pie. Crabs and spaghetti are the mainstay of every Friday night offerings. Lunch offerings include a grilled chicken breast panini with roasted red pepper, provolone, and broccoli rabe for $6.25, pastrami with onion, pickle, and provolone for $5.75, and cheese steaks.

The coffee and tea is self-serve and fairly priced. If you’re enjoying it at the counter, the mugs are huge. There is also handdipped water ice available. Seniors enjoy a discount on Tuesdays and kids, every day. There are tables by the windows and seats at the counter, but Richland Deli also delivers. Call 856-213-5612 for information on the daily lunch or dinner specials.

A Traditional Approach As summer comes to an end, the back-to-school bug fills the air. It’s best to start gathering supplies early to take advantage of the discounts and large selections. How many times have you rushed out looking for a “Dora” lunch box only find all the “good” lunch boxes are gone and just a few “Transformer” or “Barney” boxes are left on the almost empty shelves. Schools now make it a bit easier for parents to buy the essentials by posting lists of needed school supplies on their websites. Make sure you check the school website or call the school for a list of required supplies. Kids often have strong preferences, so don’t forget to check with them first before you stock up on plain red binders or lead pencils only to find red is “out” and only “real” pencils are aloud in class. Shop with a list to avoid buying things you don’t really need. Even 10¢ spiral notebooks aren’t a good buy if your child needs a ton of composition books instead. Of course there are the basic items you’ll need to pick up: backpacks, binders, and planners/organizers, in addition to the regular assortment of pencils, crayons, glue, and scissors—but schools are now allowing for more high-tech gadgets like lap-tops, note pads, and high-end calculators. And don’t forget to get the kiddies to bed early and pick-up an alarm clock for Junior, it’s never to early to start encouraging kids to wake up on their own!

Washington Report

Rightly So

by Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02)

by Jimmie Lee Hollis

Selling South Jersey A surprise to no one: the economic situation is extremely fragile. While the country teeters between recovery and recession, our communities continue to reel from foreclosures, frozen credit lines and double-digit unemployment. A key aspect of my job is to fight for our existing industries and businesses, while promoting our region for potential opportunities. Unquestionably, South Jersey has substantial resources and a skilled workforce to offer any future employer. Crafting the right sales pitch has become increasingly more important. Just last week, I delivered the keynote speech before aviation research and technology industry leaders at the NextGen Aviation Research and Technology Park (ARTP) Tenant Conference in Washington. Hosted by the South Jersey Economic Development District, more than 60 industry representatives attended to hear presentations from the ARTP partners about the exciting project underway in conjunction with the design and implementation of the Next Generation Air Transportation System at the FAA Technical Center in Egg Harbor Township. With $7 billion in federal contracts already awarded and the infrastructure of the NextGen ARTP (www.nextgenaviationpark.org) on track to be completed in September, private firms are interested in FAA research projects and gaining access to state-ofthe-art federal laboratories. With global aviation leaders such as Boeing, Raytheon, Hi-Tec System Inc. and SRA International attending the conference and looking closely at South Jersey for the base of their NextGen operations, I now believe the estimated 2,000 high-wage positions will be the baseline rather than the ceiling of our region’s potential. Furthermore, the ARTP will clearly serve as a force multiplier across the region for job creation in support services, housing sales and local businesses. At the conference, the sales pitch was simple: South Jersey is the future of aviation. Likewise, we need to continue to sell our beaches and local attractions as the economically-sensible alternative to other destination vacations. As we know, key to our tourism industry is our beaches. With 127 miles of coastline, the importance of our clean waters and beaches cannot be overstated. I was pleased the Army Corps agreed that Atlantic City needed $7.8 million in emergency federal funding to repair substantial damage to our beaches created by last year’s storm. South Jersey’s coastal communities are taking the necessary steps to protect their local attractions, promote their seasonal small businesses and ensure the strength of the state’s $38 billion tourism industry and the half million jobs it supports. From corporate presentations to friendly recommendations, we each have a role in selling South Jersey to prospective employers, consumers and tourists. Improvements in our region’s economic outlook are directly tied to our ability to convey the benefits readily available: a talented workforce, a diverse economic base, our manufacturing background, a pristine environment, our geographical location and so on. Clearly, our region is an attractive option and South Jersey has the resources to compete for the top businesses and secure jobs; we just need to make the final sales pitch to close the deal.

Successful Education and the Public School System The effectiveness of today’s public schools is the subject of continuous debate and controversy all across our state. There is a lot that needs fixing but the problems are not solely due to a lack of funding as some proclaim. I believe Governor Christie is headed in the right direction against strong opposition to change. I am a product of the 1950s and 1960s public school system and I do believe I received a very good education, again relative to the times I achieved it. The public school system in the 50s, 60, and 70s received a lot less funding than today relative to the times, and it turned out a higher percentage of welleducated students, many from poor districts. Our teachers expected, no demanded, that we learn stuff that equipped us for life and college. We were a poor school district in Southern Illinois, a lot poorer than most counties in South Jersey, and we often used hand-me-down books and materials from the “white schools.” And yet from personal accounts, over 90 percent of my class went on to college and over 50 percent of those became successful in their pursuits, and this in a time of overt and intense racial segregation. During my school years discipline in schools was not politically incorrect, so teachers had a lot of power that was given to them by the parents. Talking back, running in the halls, being discourteous and other “sins” often brought swift and “righteous correction.” Teachers were “social engineers” but not in the context of what it means today. They were more interested in teaching us reading, math, biology, history, science and civics. Many years later I realized our schoolteachers had refused to let us give up or fail. It was a personal goal for them. They also ensured that every student received the same dedication and educational standards. They saw their roles as providing the launching pad for the next U.S. President, the next astronauts, military professionals, lawyers and yes----future teachers. For them it was an investment in the future---theirs and ours. Some say the “old educational system” is passé, maybe, but I defend its effectiveness. I am not saying we should go back to those days, but we could sure use some of the unselfish attitudes that prevailed. I reject the premise that unless you live in a “rich district” you can’t get a good education. Myself, and many of the kids I went to school with are living proof that dedicated teachers backed by dedicated parents, successfully educated children from poor communities over many years. If they could do it then, why can’t we do it now? Anyone hear the damaging hoof beats of political correctness, organized resistance and liberal ideology?

Letter To The Editor Privatization Not New Tool To New Jersey Municipalities, But Reforms Can Make It More Common The recent State Privatization Study by the Zimmer Commission has thrust this concept back into the public square. But privatization is not news to local government officials who, for decades, have been using this tool, to deliver citizen services effectively, efficiently, economically and ethically. While the term ‘privatization” is not widely used in municipal government, you will often hear discussions about ‘contracting-out,’ ‘interlocal agreements,’ ‘shared services,’ and ‘professional service agreements,’ at council meetings throughout the State. Many municipalities contract with a third party to provide a service, or do so jointly through either a shared services agreement or a public-private partnership. These have been entered into as a result of the need to provide the service, the lack of personnel and/ or the absence of a ready supplier. Typically an opportunity and a need have to present themselves. New Jersey municipalities routinely contract-out for: solid waste, recycling collection, disposal and marketing services; street paving and reconstruction; snow and ice control; water treatment and distribution; sewerage collection and treatment; web master and maintenance services; other professional services, including engineering and design, architectural, municipal attorney and other legal services including labor, tax appeal defense, COAH defense, police officer liability defense, accounting and auditing; and a host of other services. How can the private sector provide a service at a lesser cost than government can? Government does not pay income or corporate business taxes and does not need to provide for profit. However, there are other factors at play that periodically permit the private sector or even other governments to provide services in a more cost effective manner. Other parties can effect economies of scale that a municipal government cannot. Some have experience with the service they provide and can achieve much greater efficiencies. Often, private vendors have greater control over their workforces. Sometimes, contractors are able to pay their employees market wages for work. These are often less than the wages and benefits that are found in municipal contracts. Benefit costs are typically fixed in a privatization contract. The municipality contracting for the services knows what its costs will be. It does not have to worry about overtime or annual increases in health, unemployment and workers compensation insurances, pension, and other bills. Further, contractors who fail to meet contract performance terms can be dismissed, if the terms and conditions permit. Private contractors have standards established in a contract and they wish to have their contract renewed. Thus, there is usually strong accountability under a service contract. Almost inevitably, however, local resistance arises, whenever privatization is considered. Whether the resistance comes from current employees, collective bargaining agents, outside forces, supportive residents or other local political efforts, it is very difficult for a local elected official to choose an alternative provider in the face of municipal employees who will lose their positions, wages and benefits, especially in our current economic down-turn. And State laws and regulations can also serve as an impediment to privatization. Civil service regulations impede municipalities from privatization, outsourcing or shared services. While subcontracting is a managerial prerogative as recognized by the courts, public employers are required to negotiate the impact of the subcontracting decision. Legislation that would permit governmental employers to utilize private and non-profit vendors to supply municipal services, without the need to negotiate the impacts of these actions, would help municipalities to make the subcontracting decision. We would support reforms that would eliminate the artificial controls that exist on contractors who provide municipal services. Prevailing wages regulations are really union wage regulations. These regulations directly and uniformly increase the cost of services and capital improvements needed to maintain the infrastructure of our municipalities. If the public is concerned about the cost of government, it is necessary to eliminate the artificial inflators that perpetuate the increased cost of governmental services. The largest expenditure categories in almost all budgets are in the area of public safety. One reason for this is that wages and other costs of these services are typically not subject to market forces. One reason for this, among others is that municipalities are not able to contract for police or fire services from anyone other than another public agency. Municipalities can, however, contract with the private or non-profit sector for emergency medical services. There can be competition. Where market forces can be applied to the cost of labor in the provision of municipal services, there have been significant reductions in cost. Non-profit and private providers do not incur the same total personnel costs that the extant condition in government. Reforms enacted by the Trenton establishment can help local officials use this tool more often and more effectively. Very truly yours, William G. Dressel, Jr. Executive Director New Jersey League of Municipalities

Township of Buena Vista Developing Affordable Homes Ground-breaking ceremonies for the first Buena Vista Township, NJ Affordable Home developed under the Neighborhood Stabilization Program was held on August 12, 2010 at 2:15 PM 130 Rockefeller Lane. Mayor Chuck Chiarello has announced a groundbreaking ceremony will be held for the first home being developed under the Township’s Neighborhood Stabilization Grant Program. The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) is funded through the NJ Department of Community Affairs to acquire and substantially rehabiliate or reconstruct five foreclosed or abandoned homes in the Township. After the units are rehabilitated they will be sold as affordable homes to qualified buyers. The program will match the qualified buyers to the rehabilitated homes. Each buyer is evaluated by a financial institution that grants them a mortgage. The first home, located at 130 Rockefeller Lane, will be purchased by Mr. Derrick Minor. The house, built in 2003, was in fairly good condition, but needed a few renovations, including conversion to gas, deckwork, painting, carpeting and a new septic system. The homebuyer, Mr. Derrick Minor, Mr. and his family are looking forward to moving in by the end of this month, He said, “I am very fortunate and very blessed to have purchased this house. I would just to thank everyone at the Township and Triad Associates for helping me with this process.” “Before the acquisition of this property through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, this home was foreclosed and vacant; a bad situation for our neighborhood,” said Mayor Chiarello. Four more homes in the Township are in the process of acquisition and rehabilitation as part of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Repairs may include roof replacement, new HVAC units(s), new water heater, new windows (dual pane), insulated exterior doors, new appliances, new flooring, interior and exterior paint, new front yard landscaping, baseboards, attic insulation, smoke detectors, new plumbing and electrical and inspection for termites and leadbased paint. “The Neighborhood Stabilization Program has provided a tremendous opportunity for individuals and families to become homeowners and stakeholders in their community,” said Mayor Chiarello. “These homes are a fantastic bargain for homebuyers who qualify.” Applications for the purchase of the units are still being accepted. Families earning between 50% and 120% of the area’s median income are eligible to apply. Applicants will be required to have a minimum credit score of 580 (with no recent judgements or bankruptcies) in order to obtain mortgage pre-approval. The preliminary applications are available through Dawn Genco, Associate at Triad Associates, 856-690-5749 or by visiting the website at www.triadhousingprogram. com. Pre-application forms will also be available at the Buena Vista Township Building. To qualify, homeowner’s income, which includes all earned income as well as income from assets, benefits, child support, and alimony, must meet the program’s criteria. The income limits can be viewed at www.triadhousingprogram.com. The homes have deed-restrictions that prevent the houses from being rented, subletted, or sold to an ineligible buyer. Qualified candidates must complete an eight-hour home buying counseling course, secure a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage, which could be FHA or VA loan, and have the required down payment and closing costs, Units will be dded-restricted to ensure continued affordability, and they cannot be later rented, subletted, or sold to an ineligible buyer.

August/September, 2010

Don’t just clean it... Steam it! One of the first things people do when they buy a new house or move into a new rental property is get the rugs clean. Just the thought of what may be left behind from past owners or tenants is a little scary. Even in the daily wear and tear of living leaves behind sometimes invisible grime. Who knows what could be hidden in the fibers that covers your floors. If your carpets aren’t clean, your house isn’t clean and although most people do a pretty good job keeping up with regular sweeping up, your vacuum cleaner can remove most dirt and soil from your carpet but it won’t clean it completely. You need to use steam cleaning carpet machines to get your carpets completely clean and free of things like oil or sticky soil and mud that vacuum cleaners can’t get rid of. Whether you decide to go with steam vapor cleaning service or dry steam cleaning service, your carpet will benefit greatly and you’ll benefit from a toxin free service. Regularly steam cleaning your carpets is the best thing you can do to increase the life of your carpet,” says Cathy Sobocinski, who along with her husband Ray and extended family, own SOS Carpet Cleaning South located in Galloway.

SOS is a family owned business and has just finished it’s first year of operation, although it’s sister company SOS North, located in Massachusetts has been in business for years. The Sobocinski Family provides top quality carpet cleaning, for the home, and office in Atlantic County and surrounding areas at fair prices. Benefits of Steam If you and/or your family members suffer from asthma and allergies, steam cleaning equipment and cleaning will prove superior to any other method. Did you know that, through steam cleaning, you can get rid of most fungi, dust mites as well as viruses? Your carpet should be steam cleaned at least once every two years depending on how many people live in your household and how often they walk over a particular carpet. SOS has a truck mounted cleaning unit, so they can clean almost anywhere. In addition to carpets, SOS can steam clean Upholstery and even extract water from a flooded room. They offer free estimates and perform all work themselves. For more information call Cathy and Ray at 609-652-1727
