LOCAL NEWS

Focus On Brick Township with Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis

We recently received great news from Moody’s Investor’s Services about the township’s financial standing. They announced that they maintained the township’s rating on our outstanding long-term debt and assigned their highest rating on our short-term debt. While towns and cities across the nation face bankruptcy and credit downgrades, Brick Township remains financially strong. Brick Township received a credit upgrade two years ago and with the fiscal policies we have set in place, we were able to keep that rating for our latest bond issue. Moody’s is one of ‘The Big Three’ credit rating agencies. They look at municipalities from an investor’s point of view. They don’t concern themselves with rumor or innuendo; they don’t read fiery online forums filled with speculation and character attacks to determine a town’s fiscal standing; they don’t read salacious headlines. They look at the finances and operations of the township to make a determination if the municipality is financially sound and a low risk for investors. Their reports are essentially a barometer for investors and in Moody’s eyes, Brick Township is a safe bet. One of the factors that Moody’s cites for our credit rating is our “demonstrated success in cutting expenses.” There was no comment in their announcement that was more satisfying to read than that. For the past five years, we have been working to create a smaller and more efficient government in Brick Township and we have succeeded at just that. We have saved millions of dollars through initiatives that my administration has implemented such as shared services with neighboring municipalities and government agencies and through the privatization of janitorial services. We have worked hard to create efficiencies and find savings wherever we can. When I took office in 2007, Brick Township’s Municipal Government was bloated and bursting at the seams. Our staff reduction program has succeeded in reducing the size Visit us at www.thebricktownshipcommunicator.com

of our full-time work force by over 18% in the past five years – or nearly 1 out of every 5 full-time employees that were on the payroll in 2007. When you factor in salaries, health benefits, pension contributions and other costs for these positions this reduction accounts for millions of dollars in annual savings. We have been able to significantly reduce staff while maintaining services for citizens. This has been done through restructuring our organization to ensure that our employees are managed more closely and effectively. When you have less people to do the same jobs, employees are required to take on more tasks and responsibilities. It is important to have effective management in such cases. We have assigned managers who know how to lead and get the most out of employees in each department and division. This administration has also worked to negotiate labor agreements with our employee unions that are more affordable for our taxpayers. Through negotiating things like more steps in the employees salary guide, increased health care contributions and the establishment of flat rates for new hires, we are creating a more stable future for the township. These efforts will pay off for years to come and will help us comply with the Governor’s 2% tax levy cap. This year, the Township was able to have a zero tax increase. I was disappointed that the Council did not pass the nearly 13% tax decrease that was presented to them in my budget but I am satisfied with the stable taxes. Unlike zero tax increase budgets in the past, the town did not have to utilize one trick one time revenue shots to achieve this. Again, we are pleased that the reforms we began instituting in 2007 are paying off. These reforms were implemented to create permanent efficiencies and savings. It has taken some time, but they are paying off and creating a more stable and financially strong municipal government. The report from Moody’s is proof of that. My administration and I are committed to continuing our efforts to make this municipal government more affordable, more responsive and more efficient for all of you.

Letter To The Editor THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

Many people still think that when, on Election Day, they place an ‘x’ next to the presidential candidate of their choice they are voting directly for that person. Not quite! The presidential election is the only one in the United States where the voters do not have the right to vote directly for their candidate. Governors, senators, members of Congress, mayors are chosen by a majority of popular votes but presidents are not. What is the Electoral College? First of all it is not a “College” or a “University” When on Election Day the citizens vote for President they are actually voting for electors, selected by the political parties; pledged to the parties’ candidate. The number of electors for each party equals the combined number of that state’s U.S. senators and representatives. New Jersey has 14 electoral votes. The candidate getting the majority of the popular votes gets all the electoral votes of that state. There are a total of 538 electors throughout the country. A candidate must win at least 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. About six weeks after the election, electors meet at their state capitals to cast their ballots directly for president. (If no candidate for president has a 270 vote majority then the House of Representatives chooses the president.) Does it work? For the most part yes it does work, however there have been three elections where a candidate has won the popular vote but failed to win the 270 electoral votes. The last time was in the 2000 election. Al Gore had 51,003,894 popular votes to 50,459,211 for George Bush, but Bush had 271 electoral votes to Gore’s 267. That doesn’t sound fair. The Electoral College is autho-

rized in the 12th amendment to our constitution. Our founding fathers that signed the Declaration of Independence and formed the constitution were perhaps the smartest group of people this country ever had. What was their reasoning for choosing indirect elections? They feared that the states with the largest populations would control the elections. If today the voters in California, New York, Texas, Florida and Illinois would agree on one candidate then the smaller states such as Wyoming, Iowa, Utah and New Jersey would have little or no say as to who would become president. As it is today each state large or small has a distinctive roll in choosing the leader of our country. Remember George Bush won his first election by one vote over the minimum required. The divergent states of Alaska, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, Delaware and Vermont each are allotted 3 electoral votes which could possibly change any election and the history of this country. Can the Electoral College be abolished? Critics argue that the Electoral College is archaic, and gives certain swing states, like Ohio, undue influence in selecting the president. Proponents argue that the Electoral College is very important that it protects the rights of smaller states. In order to amend the constitution, the amendment must be approved by a 2/3 rd majority vote of congress and then is sent to each state for ratification by the states Legislatives. Approval is required by ¾ of the states or 30 out of fifty. It is almost certain that each of the small states would vote against giving up what leverage they have in the elections. It’s safe to say that the Electoral College, with all its flaws, is here to stay. by Jim Mack Brick Township

D-DAY MEDAL PRESENTATION - A very special D-Day Commemorative Medal Ceremony was held on Saturday, August 4, 2012, which presented to the daughter of a veteran of that epic battle on D-Day, at the 9th Annual Veterans Picnic at The American Legion Brick Memorial Post 348. Louis Salerno, father of Regina Kiesche, enlisted in the Army during World Was II. He served with the 294th U.S. Army Combat Engineers, and was present on June 6, 1944, for the Battle on Normandy Beach in France. Operation Overload was the largest amphibious operation to ever take place. The first day of the landing was called D-Day and occurred on five beaches simultaneously. Lou passed away in 1998. Regina wanted to collect her dad’s award for the family to display. Ret. Ocean County Veterans Service Officer John Dorrity came to the rescue, by providing the medal, which was originally issued by the French Veterans of Foreign Wars. Several active National Guard members were in attendance, as well as, members of the Toms River Family Readiness Group. Event organizer and Auxiliary member Diane Cody worked tirelessly to raise funds for veteran causes at this event. “This is really about the American Legion Family coming together to help out our vets,” said Diane.

Portuguese & Spanish Cuisine

399 Mantoloking Rd. Brick 732-228-7655 with Chef James Conroy If you are on the way to the Ironbound section of Newark for great Portuguese food, it’s time to change your plans. A relative newcomer to the Brick Township food scene is just a few minutes away. Located on 399 Mantoloking Road, a few miles from the intersection of Hooper Avenue is the Spanish Potato Grill. Owners Manny and Ana Paula Martins proudly opened this BYOB last winter and it’s been standing room only ever since. The small restau-

Casa are the Portuguese version of nachos. The thin sliced potatoes appear on several dishes. In this version the crisp, brown potato slices are topped with a Chorizo sauce and melted cheese. A great family starter. For our first entrée we enjoyed a Portuguese staple, Pork and Clams. This specialty of traditional Portuguese restaurants has seared marinated pork and fresh clams that meet in a spice-filled broth. Hope you saved some bread for dipping, this is the dish to do it in. Next…Paella. No visit to a Portuguese restaurant is complete without tasting a true testament to their fishing heritage. This dish, with a base of brothy saffron rice couldn’t be made in a better spot in America. On the shores where flavorful lobsters are harvested, this dish is crowned with a split whole lobster and complimented by clams, mussels and shrimp. As we sipped our last wine, Fernando insisted we try some of their desserts. All of which are homemade. I don’t think I have ever written that before. It is a testament to a restaurant owner to produce all his own desserts, a true

feat in the world of easy-to-buy frozen selections. We ordered cappuccino and started with Pastais de Nata. These custard cups in a puff pastry shell were served warm with a light flaky dough and a sweet eggy finish. This, along with their Flan were excellent, authentic treats and I highly recommend you try one or the other. With comfortable dining, good quality ingredients, BYOB to save money and truly unique desserts, the Spanish Potato is a win on any night. Although there is plenty of room to wait in the foyer, I suggest you visit the Spanish Potato on weeknights or visit for a lunch special Tues. – Sat. from 12-4 with specials every day. Chef Manny does off-premise catering including excellent packages for the football season. Check out his current menu at www.spanishpotatogrill. com. The Spanish Potato Grill is open Monday thru Saturday, 11 AM thru 9 PM and Sunday 12 PM thru 9 PM. (732) 228-7655

rant is comfortably decorated with soft lighting but bright enough to read the menus! In order to bring you the full Portuguese experience, they will mix up your Sangria as long as you bring your own wine, brandy and triple sec. On the evening of our visit, Fernando was our server. His polished style was a welcome change from the common and indifferent service offered at many retaurants. He presented us with a warm basket of crusty rolls served with our just uncorked bottle of BYO Zinfandel. After a through explanation of the menu from Fernando, we started ordering and didn’t know when to stop! We began with the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce with fresh shrimp sautéed in a delicious garlic sauce, along with that came Fried Calamari. Breaded and fried to perfection with a drizzle of a sweet balsamic vinegar reduction. It was truly one of the best renditions I have ever enjoyed. Chorizo Flambiado, is Portuguese sausage flambeed in brandy. It was finished tableside in classic Portuguese fashion. The sausage is stuffed with large, rough cuts of pork with delicious hot seasoning. Spanish Potatoes a

School Board Notes By Sharon Kight President Brick Township Board of Education

I’d like to welcome back to school all of the students and staff of the Brick Township Public School District. Our new leader, Superintendent Dr. Walter Uszenski has been working hard to hit the ground running with building a positive climate for our school community. In late August, new teachers participated in a first ever of its kind, New Teacher Orientation. They were welcomed to the Brick School’s family by the Board of Education, Mayor Acropolis, BTEA, school administration, and even high school students who shared how Brick’s teachers have positively impacted their lives. All of the district’s teaching staff was also welcomed to the new school year during convocation hosted by Dr. Uszenski on their first day. While enjoying refreshments generously provided by the Parent’s Association’s, the Superintendent gave the staff a personalized greeting and the opportunity for each of the employees to meet him. They came away with an understanding of his vision for moving the school district forward and an understanding for the support we provide all of our teachers. His framework for the future includes efforts in curriculum, instruction, staff development and technology integrations. Goals include providing a curriculum that challenge each learner, preparing our students to compete with the best and brightest from across New Jersey, emphasizing pride of accomplishment and high expectations for students performance, ensuring consistency of curriculum aligned with state core standards at each grade level, offering staff participation in goal setting, indicating our willingness to serve the community as expressed through kindness, flexibility, openness, fairness and firmness of convictions, and nurturing the values to be found in our schools, personal and continuing relationships between staff and students, friendliness and student pride and participation. While Dr. Uszenski and the Board of Education continue their focus on student and teacher success, we are also working to strengthen community relations and communication. Dr. Uszenski has been

actively participating in all of the community groups who continue to welcome him to join them across town. We are also planning for focus group meetings which welcome all members of the community to meet with Dr. Uszenski at their neighborhood school to share with him any questions or concerns they have about the school district. We hope to see all members of the community participate, those who are already involved as well as those who may not have been involved before. These meetings dates and times will be announced on BTV20, the district website www.brickschools.org, and shared with the local newspapers. We also ask that those who are interested in participating in the Superintendent’s Council of Parents to please continue to share your contact information with myself at skight@brickschools.org or through our office of Community Relations at 732-785-3000 X-1070. The fall brings many great activities to the school buildings, which are always buzzing with excitement. This past weekend was the home opener for the high school football season in a traditional Brick Township High School vs. Brick Memorial High School game. Brick Township high school’s safe, new bleachers are open for use and we hope that everyone is able to enjoy them this season. Information about the upcoming athletic schedules can be found on the athletics section of the district website. We also encourage the senior citizen members of the community to pick-up their event passes at the Board of Education Administration Building. These passes entitle you complimentary access to all home sporting events and play dress rehearsals. Also, be sure to mark your calendar for Brick Memorial High School’s fall production of Romeo and Juliet. Edited for the Brick Memorial Stage by director Joseph Stefanelli and Senior Annabelle Magnusson, this production will present the classic love story simplified for a cast of eleven. Using the play as well as dialogue from other works by Shakespeare, the play will portray the tragic love story of two teenagers who believe their love will prevail over controlling parents and a century-year-old feud. Romeo and Juliet will hit the Brick Memorial stage November 30th at 7:30 PM, December 1st at 7:30 PM and December 2nd at 2:00 PM. Information on Brick Township High School’s fall production is still being finalized and will be provided in my October column.

To Your Health by Dr. Chris Kawa

The Medical Merry-Go-Round Did you ever try and jump off a merry-go-round while it’s traveling at full speed? Yeah, me neither. But if you did, I bet you would break an ankle, or worse yet, be sucked into the abyss of the black hole underneath it. I think that too many people in this country get caught riding on what I call the “medical merrygo-round”. But when you’re on this merry-go-round, it IS worth jumping off. Your first ride begins when your doctor suggests that you start taking a medication for

something such as high cholesterol. You fill the prescription as told and begin following doctor’s orders swallowing the pills each and every day. However, after two months you begin to notice that you’re getting leg cramps which keep you up at night. (A common side-effect of statins) So another trip to the M.D. is in order. This time you leave with a little piece of paper that gives a pharmacist the right to give you some Lyrica to calm your legs and some Lunesta to help you sleep. Unfortunately, a week into taking these two drugs

• Exterior Hand Wash • Towel Hand Dry • Vacuum • Windows Cleaning • Sealer Wax

you get a weird rash and trek on down to Walgreens for an antihistamine. The antihistamine gives you stomach problems and before you know it, you’re popping Zantacs before each meal and your medical merry-goround has spun out of control. And it’s at this point where you have to make the critical choice of staying on or jumping off to save yourself. Did you know that the average 65 year old person in this country is on seven different prescription drugs at once. Can you imagine allowing seven different medications to dissolve in a glass of water and then drinking it. Talk about weird science. People are turning their bodies into chemical factories. It’s a shame. As far as I’m concerned, the best medicine is prevention. Take the steps now to be healthy and

Visit us at www.thebricktownshipcommunicator.com

avoid becoming a lab test tube. Except for an unfortunate few with genetic abnormalities, God gave you everything you need to be healthy. You just have to stop interfering with your body’s innate healing abilities by filling it with processed foods, stressing it to the max and hanging on to toxic emotions. The body needs no help, just no interference. You also need to move. Motion is life. So get on a regular exercise regimen and keep tuned up with chiropractic. Also, do your best to become a student of the wonderful benefits of natural living. This might be the best health insurance available. And if you are currently riding on the medical merry-go-round, JUMP!!! Then find a naturally oriented doctor like myself to patch you up and get you back in the game. Be well.

The Brick Township Communicator, September 2012

FROM THE STANDS by MacMann

This is the fifteenth anniversary issue of The Brick Township Communicator. I’d like to thank the founders, my friend John Vollmann and Deb Geller, and the woman who took over twelve years ago and keeps the paper alive, Helen Peck for giving me the opportunity to pen this article each month. I’d also like to thank Mandie Peart, Eileen Spears, and Karina Hillyard for typing it up for me each month. I could hardly type at all when I started and although I’m getting better poor Karina is probably stuck for at least a little while longer. I’d also like to thank all of our regular readers for their interest and the many kind comments they’ve shared over the years. It’s been fun, and I hope to be able to continue for another fifteen years or so. Regular readers know that there have been a few common themes over the years – the exploits of the Blewett Brothers, the Barney “Team 14”, the Annual Charlie Jarzombek Garden State Classic story, Richie Evans, Billy Pauch, my beloved Wall Stadium, trips with the Boss, John V., Solar Tom, Eric, Glenn and of course NASCAR. All great memories as well as great things to look forward to. Last month I urged you all to come out to Wall Stadium Annual John Blewett III Memorial 76 and a few of you actually did! Joanne and Greg, Jeannine and Rick, Diane and Danny, all showed up and enjoyed a great night of racing at the Jersey Shore. Every race was hotly contested with close racing throughout the pack in each of the Divisions. As predicted Jimmy Blewett took a night off from his dirt track exploits and brought his own #66 painted as a tribute to Don Ling’s beautiful white and blue cars of the 80s. It needed the chrome wheels though Jimmy, the black ones just aren’t the same. They didn’t slow him down though as Jimmy set fast time on the high banked 1/3 mile oval with a time of 12.696, fastest of the 18 Modifieds on hand for the night. On the redraw for starting positions Jimmy drew the fifth starting position. Chas Okerson was the early

leader followed by Shaun Carrig while the “new” Jimmy hung back and let the race come to him. Meanwhile defending track champion and three time winner Anthony Sesely was also on the move and when Shaun Carrig faltered he and Jimmy began to press Okerson. Ken Woolley suffered a shattered right rear wheel hub and hit the third turn wall hard in the Barney 14 bring out the caution on lap 35. On the restart Jimmy got a good jump on Okerson and grabbed the lead followed by Sesely and the hard changing Steven Reed in his family’s beautiful blue #55. Sesely, one of Jimmy’s closest friends, raced him hard but clean the rest of the way with Reed right on his bumper but it was Jimmy’s night, taking the win in his brother’s race for the second year in a row. In victory lane Jimmy was greeted with only cheers by one of the best crowds of the season, not a boo in the bunch. This was a new experience for Jimmy at Wall. He clearly enjoyed it! The crowd likes the “new Jimmy”. He thanked Grandpa, the late Don Ling who helped with the building of the winning car last year, and the crowd for coming out for the brother’s race. Controversy or not he noted that Wall is “Home”, that he and his brother turned their first laps there and that both “loved the place”. Jimmy now has three wins (including the one taken away in the “tire controversy”) as he and Steven Reed won in the Twin 35s run on September 1. Brick’s own Adam Gordon got his first win in the Sportsman Division just in time. He headed off to York College the next week and is devoting himself to school until the Turkey Derby on Thanksgiving weekend. Among those Adam tanked in addition to Mom Patty and Dad Mark was Brick’s Robert Sutphin for his mentoring during Adam’s young career. Adam’s mom and Dad were rightly proud of their multi-talented young son> Adam is also an accomplished drummer and Mark and Patty have been extremely supportive of his efforts throughout his young career. Robert Sutphin is having a good year himself with two wins and currently stands fourth in points in the super competitive Sportsman Division. Charlie Kremer III leads the points in the family 77, which finally looks like a Kremer 77 – yellow with chrome red numbers. Andrew Krause also got his long awaited first win and sits second while Eric Mauriello is third but leads with five wins. Eric is clearly a very talented young driver –

smooth, clean, knows how to pass on the outside. Look for him to move up to the Modified soon – he’s got “it”. Former Wall Modified regular Martin Truex, Jr. had “it” too. It led him all the way to two NASCAR Nationwide Series Championships and ultimately a seat in the Michael Waltrip Racing 56 which he has put solidly in the “Chase” this year. Yes, it’s September and the racing season is winding down. It is hard to believe but the Sprint Cup’s regular season of 26 races has been completed and the field of 12 drivers eligible to win the 10 race Championship Chase has been set. The big surprise to me is who didn’t make it – last year Carl Edwards tied with Tony Stewart who won the title on a tie breaker since he had more wins. This year Edwards is on the outside looking in, a situation that I find shocking. His two teammates, Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth both made it, the only two Fords in the group. Kyle Busch didn’t make it either, another surprise given his obvious talent. Like Edwards his team never seemed to gel this year and he was beaten for the last Wild Card by Jeff Gordon. Busch and Edwards both cut back drastically in their Nationwide and truck racing schedules this year and one could draw the conclusion that they were hurt by their decisions. That’s the conclusion that my Eagle fan friend TG and I are leaning toward anyway. Gordon made an incredible charge from the back of the pack at Richmond to finish second in what many are saying was one of the best nonwinning drives ever witnessed. All four Hendrick Motorsports cars qualified for the Chase with at least one win – Jimmy Johnson had 3, Kasey Kahne 2, and Gordon and Dale, Jr. one each. Hey- Dale Jr. got a win this year! There I said it again and it felt good, you know. Rick Hendrick’s preseason goals were for his cars to each make the chase and win at least once and these goals were accomplished, no small feat given the stiff competition they face each week. Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex, Jr. both qualified in the Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas – Bowyer with one win, Martin still looking for one. It looked like Marttin had the win sewed up in Atlanta. He was dominant and clearly the fastest car all day but a caution with seven laps to go and a poor restart lost it for him. Danny Hamlin wound up on the top of the standings in the Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. He has been hot late-

ly, has most wins, 4, and looks like he will be tough to beat. He and last year’s Championship Crew Chief, Darrian Grubb have really clicked as the season progressed and they have looked very strong heading into the Chase. 2011 Champion Tony Stewart has been more consistent through the regular season than he was last year when he had a so-so first 26 races then caught fire for the last 10, wining 5 and taking the Championship away from Edwards. He has three wins in the Stewart Haas Chevrolet. Tony recently got word that his primary sponsor won’t be back next year and back to back Championships would be a great selling point to prospective sponsors. The only Dodge in the Chase is the “Blue 2” of Brad Keselowski. Keselowski also has three wins for the team Penske and has been on a tear all season. He is clearly the most improved driver on the Circuit. Team Penske is switching to Ford next year and Dodge is withdrawing from NASCAR. It would be nice to see Dodge get the title on the way out, Keselowski has been hot, and he’s my pick to take the Crown. Although it’s hard to go against Jimmy Johnson (and my brother) I think he’ll stay “five time” for another year. Look for Hamlin and Johnson to give Brad a run for the money right down to the end. The final car make numbers for the Chase- Chevrolet-6, Toyota-3, Ford2, Dodge-1. In other newsMartin Truex, Jr. has resigned a multi-year deal to drive the MWR/ NAPA 56. He sayd that the team is like family and that they have worked so hard to get to this point that he was thrilled to be staying. Roger Penske has announced that Joey Logano will fill the seat in his Penzzoil 22 in 2013. I’m surprised that he bypassed Sam Hornish who has been with him for years and done a good job in the car since A.J. Allmindger’s departure. In a surprising move Elliott Sadler is leaving the RCR Nationwide #2. Rumor is he’ll land with Joe Gibbs with a full time Nationwide ride and part time ride in Cup. Matt Kenseth was officially named by Gibbs as the driver of the Home Depot #20 in 2013. There’s still plenty of racing left on the schedules at Wall and New Egypt through the end of the month so get out there! See you in the stands!
