Kelly Miller Circus Ready to Roll Into Eagleswood


h, the arrival of a circus into a small town, it brings back such Tom Sawyerlike memories … Awaking early in the morning with eager anticipation, alerted weeks in advance by the “paper,” the posters that adorned every telephone pole, abandoned building and storefront window for miles around. Racing off to the train depot, gathering friends along the way. Moms issuing stern warnings to be careful; Dads joking “don’t run off with it.” Watching the parade of animals down Main Street, elbowing a chum in the side and roaring when the elephants did what elephants on the march are likely to do, amazed at the size of both the pachyderms and their droppings. Making a pest of ourselves as we begged to help the riggers put up the big top in exchange for an “Annie Oakley,” a.k.a. a free ticket. Patient men, those riggers, until the pre-teen pack pressed in too tightly, getting in the way, risking not only their lives and limbs but those of the circus crew, eventually earning a snarled “get the hell out of here before we turn you into tiger meat!” Finally, there was the show itself, with the smell of the elephants filling our nostrils, the voice of the ringmaster filling our ears, and cotton candy and popcorn filling our mouths. The aerialists never ceased to amaze; the lion trainer was surely the bravest of men! And just how did they get all of those clowns into that tiny car? Then it was over, our feet crunching spent peanut shells as we exited via the midway, no money left to buy a souvenir, even at half-price as they now were. It was a long time ago but as fresh in the mind as yesterday. Sigh … But now, thanks to the Kelly Miller Circus, such memories can be made for a new generation. Yes, the circus is once again coming to

DANCES WITH TIGERS: The Miller Circus, with roots to 1938 and now ties to a relative of the famous Ringling Brothers, arrives June 13. town – Eagleswood to be exact – on Wednesday, June 13. There will be two shows, at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., to benefit the Eagleswood Volunteer Fire Co. The circus will set up that morning behind that company’s stationhouse, located at 219 Railroad Ave. in West Creek, and the public is invited to watch the elephants pull the big top into the air. Tickets for adults are $10 in advance and

$15 at the door while tickets for children ages 2 through 11 are $6 in advance and $7 at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at Tips Hardware, the West Creek post office, the Sea Pirate, Baker’s Acres Campgrounds, Calloways Restaurant or, finally, at the firehouse itself from 7 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 7. A few things have changed since 1938 when the Kelly Miller Circus, then called the Al G. Kelly Miller Brothers Circus, was formed. The Oklahoma-based circus won’t be arriving on the rails but rather in a fleet of 25 vehicles. And a descendent of the founders, Obert Miller and his sons Kelly and Dory, is no longer in charge. Instead, John Ringling North II now directs the circus. Note the middle name. John’s great uncles were the famous Ringling Brothers – his grandmother was their only sister – so he grew up in the most famous of circus families! If some things have changed, other things remain the same. The big top is exactly that, a big top! Imported from Italy and made from waterproof vinyl, it measures 120 feet by 130 feet, is 40 feet high and has a seating capacity of 1,500, with no seat more than 40 feet from the action. The circus features traditional acts including elephants, tigers, performing dogs, Mike Rice’s “Mixed Liberty” (he claims to have trained animals ranging from big cats to trout, you read it right, trout, but has specialized, of late, in camels) the “Juggler Supreme” Raul Olivares, Fridman Torales, the “King of Rola Bola,” the Pirates of the Kellybean Aerial Ballet, the Delara Duo aerial act, the Fusco Family Gauchos of Argentina, Rebecca Ostroff on the trapeze and the clowns Steve and Ryan. They're sure to make memories in young, impressionable minds. — Rick Mellerup

Gospel and Blues Collide on LBI


here will be a fusion of blues and gospel music when musician and worship leader Danny Daniels visits Long Beach Island this weekend. Based in Albuquerque, Daniels will appear on Saturday evening, June 9, 5:30 p.m. at Off The Hook, a restaurant located in Barnegat Light’s Viking Village. Playing with him will be David Jones, longtime area musician and the worship and music director for Island Baptist Church in Beach Haven.

“We’ll be doing some of our favorite blues tunes and then perform some of my original gospel songs,” said Daniels. “We’ll probably do a little jamming.” On Sunday, June 10, Daniel will lead the worship and teaching at the Island Baptist Church’s worship service at 10 a.m. At 6 p.m. that evening, Daniels will return to the church for some more blues and gospel tunes. Born in North Carolina, the 67-year-old Daniels said he started playing in bands as a teenager in the late ’50s. “I grew up listening to a lot of country and blues,” he said. “Then when I became a Christian in 1971, the message of my music changed.” Daniels has written more than 100 songs, many of them recorded by himself and other artists on the Maranatha and Vineyard record labels. He said that three years ago, he performed at the Grace Community Church in Ship Bottom “I don’t really preach when I sing,” said the musician, who was also scheduled to lead the worship service at King of Kings Community Church in Manahawkin Wednesday, June 6, at 7 p.m. “If someone wants to talk to me after a concert, I’d be happy to share my life with them.” Jones added, “It’s great that people in the area are going to get a chance to see him. He’s touring around the country and is very well known all over America.” For more information, call Island Baptist at 609-492-7584. — Eric Englund Idol contest, Miss Stafford Pageant and more, with fireworks at dusk.

BOTH SIDES: The bayside at Bayview Park and the municipal complex grounds across the Boulevard will both be filled with activity during this weekend’s LBIfest.

LBIfest to ‘Bring on the Summer’ And Bring Community Together “


ring on the summer,” as LBIfest invites! It’s time again for a free full day of early-summer fun this Saturday, June 9 at 68th Street and Long Beach Boulevard, Brant Beach, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is the third year of the event that has doubled its draw every year. Last year 9,000 people of all ages came by for food, music, shopping, local artists and crafters’ market, kids’ amusements and demonstrations. “It’s a fun thing to do for the whole family,” said George Gahles, president of the Long Beach Island Business Alliance, which sponsors the event. The parking lot of the Long Beach Township municipal complex fills with big-top tents, and the activities spill out into the grassy adjacent ballfield and across the Boulevard to Bayview Park, where there are more tents, more music and in-water demonstrations on the bay. “We have four tents, nine bands, the bayside is open for picnicking, you can buy food and drinks, there are bouncy machines and other things for your kids to do, stand-up paddling on the bay. It’s a nice family day,” summed up Gahles. Surf gear is just one of the early summer finds at row after row of vendors’ tables. The band line-up is an array of music from early surfing sounds (The Brigantines) to bar band favorites who play locally and around the country. AJ Stone will play both acoustic solo and also with his band, the AJ Stone and the Karma Robbers. Singer-songwriter Ted Hammock will be there with upbeat acoustic pop; and all day will be nonstop (well, except for maybe a break) entertainment from other talent such as The Dan Brown Duo, The Following, The 559s, The Castoffs, and Steve Felberg. Longtime locals will remember Felberg with the band Session, and for LBIfest he’s flying in from Colorado as a favor to old buddy Zack Kerzner, one of the event’s organizers. Kerzner has been running around with phones attached to both ears, practically, to get the entertainment lineup together.

Two beer trucks will bring variety to the refreshment choices. Wine is on the drink menu, too – it goes well with the fare that will be for sale from local restaurants attending. Vendor spaces are sold out for the nearly 70 places under the shopping/display tents, and a number of others will be set up outside the tents, Gahles said. Parking is streetside in the nearby neighborhood for those who are early, but a better idea is to catch the free buses, which will run all day on a route from Harvey Cedars to Holgate. Stops will be marked with signs, and are usually located at places where off-street parking is more plentiful. There is no rain date, but organizers were optimistic early in the week that the good forecast will hold out. A new promotion this year is the rubber wristbands that, for the small price of $2, will entitle the wearer to special deals at member Alliance businesses. Proceeds from wristband sales, as well as from other aspects of the LBIfest will support the Southern Ocean Medical Center Foundation. “The wristbands have a dual purpose of benefiting the hospital, and also you get discounts all year long, not just all season long, at participating Alliance business establishments,” said Gahles. For more details on the wristband promotion and the festival, go to The wristband promo/fundraiser got a big boost last week when Nardi’s owner John Brennan donated one each to Long Beach Island schoolchildren for their families to use. To learn more about the business alliance, see the organization’s website, Sponsors of LBIfest include Barlow Chevrolet/Buick/GMC, Community Catalyst Fund, Lakewood Blue Claws, Long Beach Island Business Alliance, Magic 100.1 radio, Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, Stella Artois, The SandPaper, Township of Long Beach and Verizon. — Maria Scandale program is for ages 5-10. 2:30 pm.

ave you ever wanted to learn Hebrew, but just never got around to it? Sha’arey Ha-Yam is answering that wish, offering Hebrew 101 for adults this summer. The five-week class, which will be taught by the Reform congregation’s new Hebrew teacher, Iris Harari, will cover the basics and requires no previous experience with the language. Harari will be teaching the Hebrew alphabet, or aleph-bet, as well as some common prayers for Jewish rituals and services. Harari, who is a recent addition to the staff of Sha’arey Ha-Yam, is “wonderful to work with,” said Cyndy Friedland, the congregation’s Hebrew school director. The Israeli teacher, she said, is very learned and will be bringing her expertise in the language and culture to students of a wide variety of backgrounds. Hebrew 101 will be held at the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library on Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. beginning on June 13 and running through July 18, with no class on July 4. Working and supplemental materials will be available to students within the class, and those interested are asked to register with Friedland by calling 609-2905040. The course, which Friedland said teaches the basics of the language that is “the common thread for Judaism” and “extremely universal,” is something she hopes will be a “springboard” for other adult education courses that may be offered later in the summer, including life in Israel and the history of the Jewish state.

Founder’s Day Brings Out Best Of Stafford


tafford Founder’s Day, a decades-long tradition that began in 1964 and celebrates community, charity, business, politics, sports and family fun, is set for Saturday, June 9 (with a rain date Sunday, June 10), in two locations in town – both the Manahawkin Lake and the Doc Cramer athletic fields. This year’s theme is “Downtown Hoedown.” The day starts with a senior citizens’ brunch at the Stafford Township Volunteer Fire Co. on Stafford Avenue, for area residents 70 years of age or older. To register, call 609597-1000, extension 8573. Brunch is followed by a hometown parade that kicks off at 10 a.m. and runs along Stafford Avenue to Route 9. Festivities will begin at the Manahawkin Lake Park immediately following the parade, with activities to include opening ceremonies, craft, food and business vendors, live entertainment on the Lake Pavilion by the Mott’s Creek Pickers (playing good old “acoustic freestyle American music”), the Little Miss Stafford and Little Town Crier Contests on the main stage, pony rides and children’s games. Recreation Director Betti Anne McVey said the Southern Regional Vocal Ensembles will perform, and the Founder’s Day grand marshals will be recognized for their service to the town. In the afternoon, the whole operation will pick up and relocate to the Doc Cramer Sports Complex, where evening festivities will resume around 4 o’clock. More fun awaits with food vendors, a pie eating contest, the Stafford Idol contest, the Miss Stafford Pageant, inflatable rides, laser tag and other games for all ages. Families are welcome to tailgate at the park. The day ends with a DJ dance party and fireworks display at dusk. “Stafford Founder’s Day is a wonderful event, which still embraces that small-town feeling of a great summer day enjoyed by all,” McVey said. A Refreshing Change of Pace Some businesses choose to get involved in the community event by setting up a booth to raise funds for charitable causes. One such business is Prudential Zack Shore Properties of Manahawkin, which raises money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, the Foundation for Childhood Cancer, an organization that supports pediatric cancer research and provides assistance to families of children with cancer. The organization was created by a little girl named Alexandra Scott, who was diagnosed with cancer as a baby. When she was 4 years old, in 2000, she first set up a lemonade stand in her family’s front yard to raise money to help doctors find a cure. She passed away at the age of 8, but left a legacy in the form of the foundation that bears her name, which has raised more than $50 million. Prudential has supported Alex’s Lemonade for years, raising tens of thousands of dollars in the process, according to PruZack agent Laura Serpentelli. Best of all, she said, 87 percent of all donations go directly to fund research and families, with the other 13 percent merely sustaining the foundation’s operating costs. At the booth, which will be located at Manahawkin Lake Park, PruZack staffers will welcome donations in exchange for free, cold, sweet Countrytime lemonade. The first 50 or so visitors will be treated to Serpentelli’s own homemade brew – quantities limited – from a recipe she found in Simple Abundance, a Daybook of Comfort and Joy. The booth will also offer a gift basket to be given away in a prize drawing. — Victoria Lassonde

he quest to explore the mysteries and the allure of that nearby world unto itself, the Pinelands, begins in the pages of a new book, Discovering New Jersey’s P i n e B a rrens, by Cathy Antener. The adventure starts this Sunday, June 10, at Buzby’s Chatsworth General Store, the place of a book launch and signing with the author from 1 to 4 p.m. In the heart of the pines, Chatsworth is located on Route 563 at the intersection of Route 532. (Follow signs from Route 72, among other ways to get there.) The author knows her stuff where all things piney are concerned, being the owner of the comprehensive website pineypower. com. Discovering New Jersey’s Pine Barrens is a guide to the fascinating and mysterious places in this million-plus-acre national reserve. The publisher, The History Press, captures the appeal well in its online description of the book: “The phrase ‘New Jersey Pine Barrens’ often conjures images of desolate forests and even the piercing red eyes of the Jersey Devil. While those just might be true, there are over one million acres in southern New Jersey filled with remarkable people, charming communities, natural wonders and man-made marvels. Conservationists from around the state strive to protect the region from overpopulation and preserve the pristine wilds. From sweetly scented pines, blueberry and cranberry farms and family businesses to the proud inhabitants who welcome thousands of visitors every year, discover what makes the Pine Barrens one of the most beautiful regions in the Northeast.” Antener, a longtime Pinelands resident, added, “It’s important for people to realize just how vital this area is, not just to its residents, but to everyone surrounding it as well. Too many people don’t realize the impact the Pine Barrens has had in history, agriculture and ecology, and the importance of preserving it. “There’s so much to see and do here without going off the beaten path, and this book will guide visitors to museums, restored villages, parks and forests for an experience that’s fun for all ages. It even includes some of my favorite local wineries and restaurants,” the author noted. Buzby’s Chatworth General Store is a destination in its own right. The Buzby’s of the late 1960s was a headquarters for author John McPhee as he gathered information for his famous book, The Pine Barrens (1968). In recent decades, the store has been owned by R. Marilyn Schmidt, an author herself. She operates a charming gift and book shop in this little town that is known as “the unofficial capital of the Pine Barrens.” On June 10, Antener will autograph copies for customers as they munch on snacks and sip cranberry lemonade, a homemade specialty of Schmidt. Books will be available for purchase at Buzby’s, or order online at or — Maria Scandale

oin representatives from the Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science and the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in aiding Northern diamondback terrapins and their hatchlings on LBI. A volunteer recruitment session for Project Terrapin will be held at the terrapin hatchery on the north side of the LBIF parking lot in Loveladies, 11 a.m. Saturday, June 9. For the last four years, the LBIF Science Committee has partnered with MATES Supervisor John Wnek and students, along with Drexel University researchers, for this nesting ecology project aimed at helping a species considered in decline in New Jersey. The initiative promotes education and conservation activities on the Northern diamondback terrapin in and around Barnegat Bay, particularly on the Island’s north end, where there is a concentration of turtle activity. “Locally, terrapins inhabit marshes across the area, but there is no clear indication that the species is stable in Barnegat Bay,” Wnek explained in his summary of the project, which included construction of the terrapin hatchery enclosures on the Foundation property. Like other aquatic turtles, terrapins dig nests along bay beaches primarily during the months of June and July, “deposit eggs and return back to the water with no other parental investment,” said Wnek. He noted that peak nesting is during the middle of June. There are several threats to terrapins, including vehical traffic on roadways, which “means that every nest is important, and protecting female terrapins is becoming increasingly necessary to protect this species,” Wnek emphasized. He advises residents and vacationers in the greater LBI area to be aware of terrapins crossing roadways. Turtles have been emerging from winter nests in the past two months,

TURTLE TIME: A diamondback terrapin takes cover in vegetation near the bay in Barnegat Light. and females are currently moving around to find a nesting spot. “If anyone sees any terrapin hatchlings walking on their property or close to the roadside, please bring them to the nearest saltmarsh to release them there,” said Wnek. He also encourages people not to interfere with nesting; residents can call the Foundation to request a volunteer check a possible nest if they believe the eggs should be moved. For Project Terrapin, he added, “We will only relocate terrapin nests if they are dug in areas that pose a threat to the eggs.” Project volunteers are typically trained to take on responsibilities such as identifying terrapin nests, responding to community members who spot nesting terrapins in unsafe areas, handling female terrapins, taking measurements and marking the turtles using a notch code system and passive integrated transponder tag system, and maintaining the LBIF hatcheries. When necessary, volunteers will move terrapin eggs to the hatchery, where, after they are

measured and weighed, they are buried at the same depth of the original nest. Once they are hatched and measured, the hatchlings are returned to the nearest marsh. Through this initiative, Dottie Reynolds and Kathy Lacey have also led a group of other volunteers in installing signs in High Bar Harbor and Barnegat Light to alert motorists to terrapins crossing the roads and nesting in the area. Angela Andersen, co-chair of the LBIF Science Committee, calls Project Terrapin “a positive addition to our facility that adds another dimension to the goals and objectives of the science committee. We are honored to host such a well-respected program at our site. It’s good for LBIF and the LBI community.” The project, said Andersen, is both “good for the turtles and an ideal tool to get both kids and adults interested and involved in (the LBIF science committee’s) science objectives.” For more information, or to report a nest, call the Foundation at 609-494-1241.—J.K.-H.

Ex-Korn Guitarist’s ‘Love and Death’ at Bayside Chapel


he volume will get seriously cranked up inside Bayside Chapel in Barnegat Township when Brian “Head” Welch brings his “Love and Death” tour on Saturday, June 9, at 7 p.m. Welch is the former lead guitarist and co-founder of Korn, a heavy metal band that formed in 1993. He said he left Korn in 2005 after giving “my life over to Christ,” and then embarked on various solo projects before forming his Love and Death band earlier this year. “We’re going to be loud and full of a lot of energy,” said the 41-year-old California native “That’s the kind of music we play. I wouldn’t call us a Christian rock band. We play songs that tend to deal with the dark side of life, because that’s what I went through before my life totally changed.” Welch, who is rhythm guitarist and lead singer, said other band members are bassist Michael Valentine, guitarist J.R. Bareis and drummer Dan Johnson. “J.R. is only 17, and he is an incredible musician,” said Welch. “He is amazingly talented Supplied Photo for somebody so young.” Welch said the group’s name “symbolizes KORN-UCOPIA: Brian ‘Head’Welch will include heavy metal tunes in his Barnegat concert this what I’ve gone through over the years.” “We love this band so much, we’ll go Saturday. through hell to reach out to our fans,” he said. being 2011’s The Path of Totality. The band has “I had done a lot of performing as Brian Head been nominated for seven Grammys and has won Welch, but the time had come to use a name two: Best Short Form Music Video for “Freak on a Leash” in 2000 and Best Metal performance for branding my music.” The 41-year-old musician said this earliest for “Here to Stay” in 2003. “Freak on a Leash” influences were Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, also won them an MTV Music Award for Best Rock Video.

parents loved jazz and often played records. “I think the first musician I listened to was Jelly Roll Morton,” he said. “I didn’t get interested in what was being played on the radio stations. I loved listening to jazz.” Once Engesser got the feel of the keyboards as a young child, he was hooked. He continued his passion for jazz as a youngster and attended a high school where music and the arts were emphasized. “In Germany, we have high schools of various branches,” he said. “For example, we have some where students study math, another one that is more humanistic and one that specializes in music and the arts. The only thing I didn’t like was drawing; I wasn’t too good at that.” He later served as a nurse in the German army, working with disabled people. Engesser said what brought him to the United States in 2007 was an opportunity to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. “The biggest shock was that I was 20 years old and I couldn’t go in someplace and have a beer,” he said with a laugh. He graduated from Berklee with degrees in film scoring and contemporary writing and production. The pianist composes music for films and video games, and also gives individual piano lessons on an upright piano located in another room. It was at Berklee where he met his girlfriend,

German Jazz Pianist Prepares for Concert at Barnegat Library ichael Engesser has been taking meticulous care of his new baby – a baby grand, that is, sitting in the living room of his Barnegat Township home in the Ocean Acres section. That’s where the jazz pianist works on his own compositions and works by his most influential composers, and they’ll be on the bill when the German musician performs Tuesday, June 12, at 7 p.m. at the Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library. The 25-year-old Engesser said he would feature music from each decade beginning with the 1950s, along with some original compositions. Engesser, who said he would be playing solo, said some tunes would include Dave Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo a la Turk,” Chick Corea’s “500 Miles High” and the standard “Body and Soul,” recorded by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra among many others. “I want to do some traditional jazz tunes along with some that are more contemporary,” he said. “I’m in the process of composing one especially for this concert.” However, he said the audience should not expect music to take up the whole show. “I want to also talk about the music and tell my own story,” he said. “I have always had an appreciation for the history of jazz and how different styles of music evolved.” He said that growing up in Munich, his

come into my life, and everything is so much better now.” Welch said after leaving Korn, he took a hiatus from performing to help raise his daughter, Jennea. “I felt I needed time to be with her as she was growing up,” said Welch. “I had to get away from touring. But then I felt I needed to reach out to people and wanted to form a new band. Jennea’s 14 now, and she’s fine with it.” Welch said at the Bayside concert, Love and Death would perform Korn songs such as “Helmet” and “Blind.” There will also be two popular cuts from the first Love and Death CD, “Chemicals” and “Paralyzed.” “We also do a version of ‘Whip It,’” which was done by the New Wave group Devo, he said. “That song came out more than 30 years ago, but a lot of the kids know it because it still gets played on radio stations.” Jason Coache, the Bayside Chapel youth pastor, said the concert follows an afternoon of activities at Bayside. From 1 to 5 p.m., there will outdoor activities including BMX bicycle riding, skateboarding, jousting and paintball. Indoors, there will be basketball, kickball and various other games. Coache said he had seen Welch perform at the Creation Festival, an annual summer event held in Mount Union, Pa. “That is the biggest Christian music festival in the country,” he said. “While I can’t say I’m a huge fan of his style of music, I know it is what the junior high and senior high kids like to hear. What is most important is his story, his testimony about how his life changed. He has a strong message.” Tickets for the concert are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.

Ship Bottom native Halley Feaster, who is a cellist. “Maybe one day we’ll perform a concert together,” said Engesser, who has provided background music for diners at The Gables in Beach Haven. “But right now, I’m hoping to find more places to perform.” Possibilities could be the Stafford Township Arts Center, Ocean County College or Mancini Hall, located in the Ocean County Library main branch in Toms River. “I did play at a function at Mancini Hall, but it wasn’t a concert,” said Engesser. “Barnegat will really be my first concert.” The musician said he has not gotten caught up in American musical fads, such as “American Idol” and other similarly formatted shows. “We have programs like that in Germany, too,” he said. “I guess that is popular all over the world, but to me, it is more like musical fast food.” He said he has also gotten to enjoy living in Southern Ocean County, although he could do without the summer heat waves. “That weather reminded me of the time when we used to vacation during the summer in Italy,” Engesser said. “It was very hot and humid there.” For more information on the concert, call the branch at 609-698-3331. —E.E.

CHAIN REACTION: The artists participating in the show at the Noyes satellite gallery in Hammonton are turning a new page in art, including (clockwise from above) ‘Eights’ by math wizard George Hart; ‘Branching Out’ by Beatrice Coron; and ‘Raised Bed Fortune Patch’ by Rebecca Gilbert.

‘Clip, Cut, Paper Thin’ Now at Noyes Museum Making Paper the Medium


ome art forms are so intricate and obviously time-consuming that one wonders if the artists were successfully treated for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, would they continue in their profession? The “Clip, Cut, Paper Thin” show now at the Noyes Museum satellite gallery in Hammonton is one of those shows that just makes one’s jaw drop in disbelief. The artworks cut from paper are all this: complicated and precise and very entertaining to experience. George Hart’s “Eights,” a ball made of interlocking number 8’s, for instance. How the heck did he do that? It helps that he is something of a mathematical wizard, a former teacher of computer math at Stony Brook University, a former founding member of the MoMath: Museum of Mathematics still trying to find a permanent home in NYC and currently a freelance mathematician/artist. While at Stony Brook, he held a sculpture “barn raising,” gathering more than 200 students and faculty to create the “Spaghetti Code” sculpture that now hangs in the Computer Science building. “Eights” is a small piece but wonderful to gaze upon, proving mathematics has a spiritual component, i.e., “the wonder of the universe.” Artist Rebecca Gilbert cut 500 paper shamrocks out of rice paper, painted them and arranged them on a small hillside of boxed dirt titled “Raised Bed Fortune Patch.” “The artist originally had them in sand,” explained Brenda Kele, the assistant gallery director who curated the show, “but she found that children visiting the gallery where it was first installed were drawn to the sandbox and were disrupting them.” Gilbert also has a series of woodcuts on paper of “Saving Jars,” images of mason jars with coins or

dirt in them. The images are encased in shadow box frames. Kele said she found most of the artists for the show by surfing the Internet, but then the Noyes also had an open call for artists and three more were chosen to participate, Hart, Michele Tremblay and Keli Walsh. The most famous cut paper artist in the show is Béatrice Coran, whose intricate cut paper narratives have been shown around the world. She gives performances of her work, coming out on stage dressed in an intricate cut-paper lace cape. (See them on Three examples of her work in the show are “Branching Out,” “Haystack” and “Playland.” In each cut paper fantasy, figures hold conversations or are caught in daily actions, usually in tiny rooms that are built into an overall design. Like other art movements spurred on by technological advances – the Impressionists who were able to go out and paint in nature because of the invention of the paint tube; graffiti artists able to cover whole cities thanks to spray paint – the invention of Tyvek, a polymer construction/insulation paper, makes cutting elaborate scenes possible. The artists who use Tyvek cut it with an Exacto blade knife, not scissors, and because it is polymer, it is less likely to tear. Reni Gower is a professor in the painting and printmaking departments of Virginia Commonwealth University. Her monotone Tyvek paper cuttings are repeating patterns based on the circle, “a metaphor for binary code and infinite continuity,” she explains in her artist’s statement. They are planned to stop the viewer in their tracks and induce a contemplative state. She hopes her intricate patterns will serve as vehicles for reflection or reprieve. Pat Brentano finds inspiration in nature and, in particular, bird-life. In the window of the Noyes storefront

on Second Street she has placed cut silhouettes of all the threatened and endangered bird species still clinging to a rapidly changing and overdeveloped New Jersey. These appear to be cut in watercolor or printmaking paper. Natalia Ivancevich Hayes has placed a light behind her large work, “Peacock Lace,” of a bird strutting his feathers. “My work is based on landscapes I observe in the world around me. I want to draw attention to the ability that line and light have to create depth and color,” she says in her artist’s statement. Some of her other works available to be viewed on line ( are less “pretty” but more intriguing. They capture shadow patterns caused by light behind foliage and bring to mind a street lamp on a summer night or a dappled pattern of sun in a willow, fleeting, pleasing

sensations. Keli Walsh from Northfield was one of the artists who answered the call for local paper artists; she created a cut-paper shadow box, “Angler,” from layers of colored paper. Michele Tremblay from Philadelphia worked for many years as a floral designer after graduating with a BFA in painting.

By JON COEN igh School wrestling is a big deal up in Phillipsburg. In far northwest New Jersey, known for that famous rivalry with Easton, Pa., across the Delaware River, they share the title with Paulsboro High School for most state sectional titles, at 32. In the years that LBI surfer Pat Emery grappled, from 1986 to 1990, they won three of those titles. Just making the team was a challenge, and Emery notched a few varsity victories. But it was the lessons he took from his coaches that Emery remembers most. In fact, they remain the inspiration for the work he does today, coaching young surfers. “They were very dedicated and put a lot of heart into what they said. They would talk about past championships, and that stuck with me. Today I have an opportunity to give back to kids with surfing and show them what it takes to get to that next level,” said Emery from his Manahawkin home this week. Emery, a carpenter by trade, is the coach of the Eastern Surfing Association All Stars and the director of the Central New Jersey district. The ESA is the largest amateur surfing organization in the world, reaching from the Great Lakes to Maine, down through Florida and even the Gulf States. Emery caught the surf bug as a kid. His family bought a house in Beach Haven Terrace in 1978. It wasn’t uncommon for him to spend six to 10 hours a day in the water, and in the days before Long Beach Township had designated surfing


beaches, he would stand on a bodyboard during lifeguarded hours. After finishing wrestling and his senior year at Phillipsburg, Emery took some community college courses in Warren County and later near Myrtle Beach, S.C. He moved back to LBI full time at age 24, taking up the popular routine of surfing days and working nights – serving at the Chicken or the Egg and bouncing at Joe Pop’s. But while working at the Gateway, he started to meet more of the local surfers and got the nickname “Surfcat,” by which he is still known. “I was always ‘that dude from the Gateway.’ Greg Luker (Lex Mex owner) and his friends would come in with footage from their surf sessions. And they knew me from the water,” he explained. But while most surfers his age had competed in the local amateur ranks for a decade already, Emery had never put on a contest jersey. “One day (Surf City pro surfer) Randy Townsend came up to me and said, ‘You should come out and surf a local contest. You might enjoy it.’ I’ll never forget that. I never would have gotten into it if it weren’t for him,” recalled Emery. He had the core strength of a wrestler and a compact, power surf style. And so, in 1999, at the age of 27, Emery competed in the Masters division of the Central New Jersey ESA District. In 2001, he won the Masters at the Eastern Surfing Championships in North Carolina. “What I remember most about that was taking out Justin Citta (of Toms

A LOT TO GIVE: (Clockwise from top left) Pat Emery, director of the Eastern Surfing Association’s Central New Jersey District, judges the first of the LBI Triple Crown series, held Saturday, May 19. In 2010 he was named coach of the ESA All Stars, of which he was previously a member, comprising the very best amateur wave riders on the East Coast. River, originally from Surf City). And he’s like a living legend of LBI,” Emerysaid, laughing. In the following years, he earned return trips to the Easterns and tried his hand at bigger events. He qualified for the Red Bull Ice Break finals in Nova Scotia in 2004 and 2005 and occasionally beat professional surfers in East Coast pro events. He added a slew of East Coast Longboard titles to his resume, and in 2004, he went out to California and won Surfing America’s U.S. Amateur Surf ing Championships to become a national champ among West Coast and Hawaiian surfers. But none of this paid the bills. Emery had transitioned from restaurant work to construction and was accepted into the carpenters union in 2004. However, with most of the work in North Jersey, he spent a lot of time on the road and was really missing surfing. He returned to working on and around LBI, eventually starting his own business, New Wave Builders, specializing in all phases of construction. Emery was placed on the ESA East Coast All Star team, the best of the best amateur surfers on the East Coast. Past members have included

Kelly Slater, Cory and Shea Lopez and Damien and CJ Hobgood. Part of the responsibilities that come with the title include helping out in the local district. “I knew I was too old to be a professional surfer, so coaching seemed my be-all, end-all,” he recalled. In 2007, he accompanied the All Star team to Australia and asked the coach what kind of strategy was in place for building the team. “He just looked to me as if to say, ‘How dare you?’ He had no plan for really training those kids,” remembered Emery. When the former coach was let go in 2008, then-ESA Director Debbie Hodges asked Emery to step in as interim coach. By 2010, he was named the official ESA All Star coach. “I just reflected back to my high school days and knew this was how I want to spend my time – opening these kids’ eyes, telling them that they have the skills and perfecting their game to get to the next level.” Each year, Emery helps select the team and announces his squad at Surf Expo, the massive surf trade show each January in Orlando, Fla. He drives to three different regional qualifying events from New England

to Florida, plus the Easterns. “As an experienced surfer, Pat Emery is just a great coach who shows a true passion for leadership,” said Andrew Rooney, 14, a Manasquan local and ESA All Star who attends Christian Brothers Academy high school. “Coach Pat is always on the lookout to get more media coverage, more sponsors and more support for me and the other team members. It is an honor to be a part of his select All Star team, and I admire his hard work and dedication to the team and the sport.” Last year, Emery saw two of his team members go to the finals at the U.S. Championships in California – Knox Harris of North Carolina and Cam Richards of South Carolina, who won a national championship. Florida’s Nikki Vissens made the U.S. national team and competed at the International Surfing Association’s World Games twice. After two years under Emery, Florida’s Corey Howell (featured on the side of our Ron Jon Surf Shop in Ship Bottom) is ready to turn pro. This, for Emery, is what makes it all worthwhile. He wakes up early in the morning to keep in touch with Continued on Page 42, Sec. 2




By JON COEN s June the new September? Anybody will tell you that autumn is an ephemeral season on New Jersey’s coast. The water, the weather, the crowds. It’s what local business folk call a “shoulder” season. Because, let’s face it – summer and winter are pretty extreme here for a local. January means cabin fever. There’s one restaurant open in your neighborhood, and you’ve eaten the same thing for months straight. And as your bank account dwindles, eerie voices in the northwest winds start to taunt you. The waves were epic for half a day, but it’s been flat eight days since. And if you completely lose your mind and go running around the street naked, raving mad, there isn’t anyone to notice. Summer can call for a straitjacket, too. After working a 14-hour shift, you seemingly spend the other 12 hours (there are 26 hours in the day on LBI in July and August) sitting at red lights reading lacrosse and honor roll bumper stickers, wondering where the hell Courtesy of Adrienne Cerefice Mahwah and Ho-Ho-Kus are … and is Moorestown the one in Burlington ‘A GENTLE SPIRIT’: Wooden board builder Ben County or is that Morristown?

‘Coriolanus’ and ‘Kevin’ Top Movie Rental Picks S By BILL GEIGER o here’s LBI, getting dissed once again by the voters for best beach in New Jersey. We got beat by the Wildwoods. The Wildwoods? So their beach is long – like a half mile long, but is it better than Brant Beach? Surf City? Harvey Cedars? Most of those half-mile beaches are built up from sand moved down there by the long-shore currents that drift by just offshore and mainly move north to south. So that’s our sand that made those beaches what they are. By the way, when did they start calling it the Wildwoods? Supposed to sound exotic, maybe? I mention this because it’s just another dis-

traction that keeps us from our fundamental purpose: watching DVDs. We can sit on the beach and enjoy our days, but when the sun goes down, it’s time to crank up the DVD player, fi re up some popcorn in the old microwave and put a deep dent in the couch. Don’t sit there fretting about who wins the best-beach competition – heck, we even got beat by Ocean City again this year. Maybe the voters don’t like all that dredged sand or all that equipment on the beaches. No matter. Let’s get to the new DVDs. The beach will take care of itself. This week we have Reese Witherspoon, Tilda Swinton, Sam Worthington and Ralph Fiennes, among others, headlining the new

Will wonders ever cease? “This Means War” is a romantic comedy wherein a girl (the aforementioned Witherspoon) is being romanced by two guys who happen to work together. Pretty standard stuff, right?

Lots of spy-vs.-spy tomfoolery, even though the two are supposed to be hiding out since they are targets of assassins. “This Means War” is a lightweight but amiable enough film, so enjoy it with two bags of popcorn. If you don’t like rom-coms, though, you might need to control your gag reflex. Speaking of Harry Potter (were we?), Ralph Fiennes, who was so memorable as Lord Voldemort, decided to adapt the little-done Shakespeare play “Coriolanus” as a film. Fiennes starred and directed, and he updated the dress and timeframe for this obscure play to the present day. He plays Caius Martius (later called Coriolanus), who, as a general, is unmatched in planning and winning battles but as a ruler (read: politician) is unprepared to deal with the fickle whims of his people, the machinations of rival politicians, even members of his own family. Gerard Butler plays Tullus Aufidius, Coriolanus’ main enemy, who later joins up with the Romans, and Vanessa Redgrave plays his mother, more insidious than most politicians. Because Fiennes emphasizes the similarities with many things happening today, “Coriolanus” rates four bags of popcorn. It’s a good, universal story from a good, universal-themed play. Have we mentioned Harry Potter in this column? Well, then, let’s mention Daniel Radcliffe in “The Woman in Black.” Radcliffe plays lawyer Arthur Kipps, still struggling with the death of his wife in childbirth some four years earlier, who is sent to a distant village to inspect the papers on a recently deceased woman’s manor house. While there, he meets several unpleasant people and discovers the manor is haunted by a woman who wears black and whose son was drowned in the local marsh, which is why she terrorizes local parents. Radcliffe is very good as Kipps, able to convey his inner struggle and still be terrified by the vengeful ghost. A certified three-bagger for old Harry, er, Daniel, and quite a convincing ghost story. For the white-knuckle set, we have “Man on a Ledge,” a wronged-cop story about Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington), convicted of a crime he didn’t commit, who escapes from jail, plans the theft of a huge diamond, then climbs out on a ledge threatening suicide so he can draw attention away from his brother Joey, who attempts to steal the diamond. Elizabeth Banks plays the cop dispatched to talk Nick down from the ledge; Jamie Bell plays Joey Cassidy; Ed Harris the crook whose diamond they’re trying to steal. Altogether it’s an agreeable film, with lots of suspense that will require three bags of popcorn to suffice. Another thriller, though perhaps in a different vein, is “Gone,” the story of Jill (Amanda Seyfreid), a young woman who was abducted by a serial killer and nearly died but managed to escape. When the police failed to fi nd the deep hole in the woods where the killer kept his victims, Jill was sent away for psychiatric care. Now, a year later, Jill’s sister Molly goes missing, and Jill is convinced the same serial killer has taken Molly. The film plays a game of cat-and-mouse between Jill and her abductor and is convincing, for the most part. With Emily Wickersham as Molly, Wes Bentley as one of the detectives and Jennifer Carpenter Continued on Page 41, Sec. 2

INTO THE LIGHT: Drew Katsock (above) lends his energetic stage presence to every show. With the Russo brothers, front man John and drummer Cruise, the band is finding out how to make the dream of playing live music a reality.


he making of young rock stars is no simple job. It takes dedication, sacrif ice and a keen understanding of not only the performance art, but also the business side of the entertainment industry. The boys in Reverse Order, a Hackettstown-based foursome with band members ranging in age from 19 to 21, showed The Marlin crowd a good time Friday night with an exciting stage show and strong song choices, both telling signs of a wellrun operation. For the bar crowds, the band sticks mostly to Top 40 hits, lead singer and guitarist John Russo said, having made a few minutes to chat outside before the show – but as an original band, Reverse Order considers its genre to align more with a punk-poprock fusion. The band will go on tour to promote its third album, Right Now , starting June 20, with tour stops in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.

The Russo brothers, John and Cruise, about a year and a half apart in age, have always played music together, first with toy instruments and then with the real thing. The band lineup “has always been me and my brother, because we’re brothers,” John said. John was 6 when his parents got him his first real guitar, and his brother got a drum set. They formed Reverse Order and start getting serious about writing and playing music around 2008, Russo recalled. The songwriting process begins with Russo penning a song and then sharing it with his brother to give it a beat; then he brings the other two guys in to learn the music. Bassist Frank Spangler and guitarist Drew Katsock joined the band last year. “It’s one of those things you just can’t not do,” Russo said of his musical ambition. But the pursuit of one’s passion doesn’t come without sacrifice. Missing prom, for instance. Russo said he spends so much time

LBI Life: Thanks to Him, There’s an App for That


ven an 18-mile-long barrier island can’t escape joining the ranks of more than a half-million apps gracing the crystal-clear screens of smartphone owners everywhere. The My LBI Life smartphone application is a newly developed virtual portal for all things related to the region. “It’s an interactive mobile guide for the LBI region,” said Ray Valladares, founder and general manager of My LBI Life, who said mainland towns from Lacey to Little Egg Harbor are also included. “Before we launched, there was no single online and mobile source for all of the wonderful places and events in our area. The My LBI Life app delivers the very best of the LBI region to the palm of your hand.” The app features a list of upcoming events, news briefs and a directory of local businesses, to name a few. Valladares said events are aggregated from 80 websites to create a truly comprehensive, up-to-the-minute list, and new information is added daily. Looking for the closest place to grab a cold shake after spending some time on the hot beach? My LBI Life utilizes your phone’s GPS feature to point you in the direction of the nearest restaurants, and direct you to their contact information and website. One thing that Valladares said sets My LBI Life’s

directory of local businesses apart from, say, what you might find on Google Maps is that he sets the pins on the maps himself, instead of depending on location information that can be somewhat unreliable and frustratingly vague, particularly for first-time visitors. “That’s the great thing about being local,” said Valladares. “I know where the businesses are.” Beyond just serving as a virtual directory, the My LBI Life application has taken on an online presence that gets people talking, asking questions and getting answers. “People are engaging with us,” said Valladares. Users are encouraged to upload photos to the app of their travels on the Island, and engage in a dialogue about anything from where to find vintage beach badges to reviews of delicious dinner specials. Valladares, who worked for 16 years in information technology – after spending his teenage years selling clams on docks to seasonal residents – drew heavily upon his lifetime as a local, growing up in Beach Haven West and wedding his wife, Elke, in Beach Haven, when he decided to bring this new idea to life. “This is my LBI life, and it always has been,” he said.

on the road, in the studio or onstage that there isn’t much time for anything else. But he wouldn’t trade it for the world, he said. Once the songs are written, the band goes into the studio to record; then there’s pre-production, album artwork and photos, then the release, then the music video. Luckily for them, they keep it all straight with help from their business manager, Cindy Russo, John and Cruise’s mom. As an on-air expert for QVC with a background in acting and executive producing, her know-how in show business has helped the band get ahead. The band also has a development manager, professional-looking promo cards and a strong web presence – all important tricks of the trade that differentiate a more-polished act from the average garage band. Part of the challenge is navigating the balance between business and art. Music is an art form, John agreed, but making a living at it means taking a businesslike approach. Being successful in today’s entertainment world also means keeping up with technology to keep in touch with fans. Using smart phone apps, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, ReverbNation and Formspring becomes second nature because that’s what the fans expect. “You gotta be connected 24/7,” he said. But when it comes to connecting with the crowd during a live show, from the looks of it, nothing could be more natural. After setup and sound check, the guys took their places on stage and slipped into the rock-star roles like hands into gloves. Evident right away is how each musician takes his job seriously – John Russo exudes self-confidence as the dynamic front man, with impassioned vocals and searing guitar solos; an energetic Katsock is fun to watch as he bounces from one side of the stage to the other; Cruise Russo and Spangler are a united front in the name of driving beats and rock-steady rhythm. Completing the picture are the colored lights, dry ice and a set list full of catchy tunes irresistible to dancers, particularly the handful of men who wasted no time in commandeering the dance floor in honor of their buddy’s bachelor party. “The Marlin is the place on LBI. It’s the only place we play here,” John Russo said. Reverse Order will return to the Marlin twice more this summer, Aug. 1 and Aug. 10. — Victoria Lassonde

Lighthouse Film Festival Puts Family Fun in Focus


iss Barnegat Light cut its way through choppy waters and high winds in the Barnegat Inlet on Friday, signifying the start of the fourth annual Lighthouse International Film Festival. Despite rough conditions not allowing for the cruise to head into the Atlantic, the ride remained picturesque and appropriate as the Viking Village boat circled the watery vicinity of Old Barney – the historic building from whence the event gets its name and logo. On board were filmmakers, actors, sponsors and the team of volunteers and organizers who have made the festival grow each year. The transparency and camaraderie between those who run the show and those who literally bring the show in the form of their films were a theme echoed throughout the festival by all. Young upstarts such as Greg Contaldi, 16, of Fairfield, admitted he never thought he would be aboard an opening-reception cruise for the film he made for his class at West Essex Regional High School in North Caldwell. The silent film “The Artist,” which won the Oscar for Best Picture this year, inspired the sophomore, who even used music from the film to make his 10-minute piece on friendship via ice cream, called “Flavor of the Day.” Contaldi looks to go on to college for filmmaking and has no doubts about the state of the industry. “I feel really confident about it,” he said. Contaldi would indeed win the Audience Award for Student Film at the closing ceremony on Sunday. In between, more than 50 independent films from around the world were screened at five different locations throughout the Island. Theaters are set up using top-notch equipment and professionals at places such as the LBI Historical Museum – once a church built in the 1800s – or the Island Baptist Church in Beach Haven, a new location selected for use this year. The films ranged from children’s movies and student-made films to short films and feature-length documentaries and narratives, more of which were chosen from popular indie film fests such as Sundance, Tribeca and South by Southwest (SXSW) this year. All of them, however, had survived a rigorous, yearlong campaign conducted by the festival’s director of programming, Eric Johnson, and Executive Director Charlie Prince. Prince is an entertainment lawyer in Manhattan and also in charge of the Friar’s Club Comedy Film Festival, the connections from which help contribute to an increasingly higher level of quality films at Lighthouse each year. More than 30 filmmakers attended. Some stayed the entire weekend, and all met up to collect awards Sunday evening at The Upstairs – a newly opened lounge at the Dutchman’s Brauhaus on Cedar Bonnet Island that also hosted a Friday-night party after a recent fire at a previously planned location. An increasingly large and enthusiastic crowd compared to last year enjoyed food and beautiful views at sunset, or what is known as “magic hour” in cinematography.

“It feels like the festival started two hours ago, and we can hardly believe that it’s over,” said Prince. “I think I speak for everyone on the festival team when I say that this was the best year yet, and I’m really thankful of you for coming out and being such great fans. Thanks for being here.” Director Doug Lenox, 33, was there to collect the Jury Award for Best Short Film for “Local Tourists,” an 18-minute film shot in Wildwood, as his final project in N.Y.U. graduate school. The underdog story follows three low-life drifters working as garbage collectors and living in a motel on the Jersey Shore when their boss announces a layoff is necessary and leaves it up to them to spend one last night together to sort it out. This is the film’s first award. “It’s surreal,” said Lenox. “I wanted to come down here, I love being on the Jersey Shore, and it’s just great to be appreciated and have people respond to your work. Especially a short, which you kind of make it in a vacuum where one part of your brain is like, ‘I’m making movies for everybody,’ and another part of you that’s like, ‘It’s really a labor of love’ – so you’re making very specific stories, and it’s amazing that people respond and that they dig it. “What I thought was amazing was everyone in charge of the film festival – like Charlie and Eric – they were really accessible. It seems like a very close-knit family environment of people running the festival. That’s part of what makes indie filmmakers flourish where I live in New York, is a sense of community. I saw that here. I also think the movies they programmed are really cool and different and bringing a whole slice of life. The quality of the work here is really good compared to other places where there are a lot of highs and lows.” Picking up the Audience Award for Short Film was “Faith,” which director Erik Pagan explained was a modern-day homage to film noir, a crime movie genre from the 1930s

AND THE WINNER IS: (From left) Executive Director Charlie Prince announces the Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Dutchman’s, with jurors Holly Lynn Ellis, Mat Levy and Liselle Feingold. The award went to ‘Embedded,’ out of Vancouver, which saw its world premiere at the festival. A Special Jury Prize was given to ‘Into the Wake.’ that came in reaction to the Great Depression after people had seen the limits of the American Dream and rampant materialism. “There are no real good guys, just bad guys versus badder guys,” said Pagan. “They’re not necessarily evil, just highly damaged.” The 12-minute film follows a stakeout conducted by Mack and Eddie, longtime friends and partners on the NYPD, who discover they share a secret that will destroy the bonds of trust and loyalty between them. Pagan compared the festival to others he has been to. “I’ve been to some where you show up and it’s almost like you might as well not be

there. The good ones are there for the ‘newbies,’ not the attention. They treat you really well here. There’s just a big difference between a festival where it’s like people patting themselves on the back for running the festival and a festival where it’s just a lot of people that really like and want to celebrate movies. Those festivals tend to be the ones that are more fun, and it’s at a freakin’ beach, so … .” Leyla Yilmaz, 38, flew from Istanbul, Turkey, to New York City and made the trip south to be here and collect the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film for her first feature, “A Handful of Sea.” It also won four awards at the New York City

International Film Festival, including Best Narrative Feature. “While I was watching my film – the screening -– I was a little nervous because it’s not the easy-going film, it’s not ‘happy ends,’” said Yilmaz. “There’s no ‘happy ends’ in my film. There’s no happy love story. The audience were great, their reaction was great, and I just admired the questions after the film, which were just so right for me.” Of her first trip to LBI, Yilmaz said, “The geography I just love – the ocean – that’s why I got suntanned. I love the people; the people are so great here. The people are just working really hard. They put their heart Continued on Page 40, Sec. 2

Issues Continued from Page 39, Sec. 2 pool would also be constructed. Bill and Bonnie Clark of Loveladies would donate the cost of turbine construction. Interestingly, the wind turbine is the only part of the project that will require municipal approval. Petralia already anticipates opposition from neighbors. “They’re small-minded individuals,” said Petralia. “Most are opposed out of fear or aesthetics.” He remarked that nearby power lines were raised from 30 feet to 45 feet last year, with no complaints. The local power line upgrade could have been avoided, he said, if even 10 percent of LBI homes installed solar panels. Petralia was there when Mercurio’s wind turbine was opposed. He said the issues were its proximity to a neighbor’s property and a strobe visual effect caused by the propellers. The proposed turbine at the Foundation would be about the height of a telephone pole and rotate on a vertical axis, like a ceiling fan, rather than the more commonly envisioned turbine. “It’s too small to make much noise. It sounds like an air conditioner,” he said.

Before presenting the idea to Long Beach Township, Foundation board members must approve the plan. Petralia said the specifications are near completed. Petralia personally would be in favor of offshore wind power near LBI. He anticipates it becoming more prevalent as the technology increases and becomes more efficient. “The more you build something, the better you get at it,” Petralia said. In regard to the prospect of offshore wind power near LBI, Petralia explained a Cape May company called Fishermen’s Energy is already interested. It describes itself via website as “a community-based offshore wind developer and a consortium formed by principals of East Coast fishing companies to enable the East Coast fishing industry to participate in the development of offshore wind energy.” As their position states, “With fishermen as principal developers, a key opposition to offshore wind is removed.” It is a start to answering question of whether New Jersey will become a leader in offshore wind power in the U.S., or whether that is a ship that will never sail – the answer, then, is still blowing in the wind. *

and Wannaque rivers for variables including temperature, which he says is on the rise. “It should be seen in every public school,” said Torres. “Rush Limbaugh should be chained up to a wall and be forced to see it.” It is not just environmentalists weighing in on the issue of climate change. As the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Office of Climate and Energy website states: “Climate change poses significant and wide-ranging threats to New Jersey’s economy and environment, and the health and safety of its residents. Sea-level rise, droughts, heat-related illness, flooding, and habitat loss are among the impacts the state could face in the coming years. “Based on sound science and consideration of New Jersey’s economic goals, New Jersey enacted the Global Warming Response Act in 2007. This law requires stabilization of statewide greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, followed by a further reduction to 80 percent below 2006 levels by 2050. It is essential that New Jersey meet these limits in order to avoid the most damaging impacts of climate change.” “Cape Spin” relates to “Chasing Ice” in that it deals with wind power, an alternative to fossil fuel refineries that cause more greenhouse gas emissions than any other source on the planet. The film reveals the battle for Cape Wind, a 130-wind turbine project that was proposed for Cape Cod Sound in 2001, five miles off the shore of any beach, in between the resort areas of Nantucket, Cape Cod, and Martha’s Vineyard in waters shallow enough and in an area windy enough to make it commercially viable. Images throughout the film of sailing, fishing, and silver-haired men relaxing in pink and peach-colored polo shirts immediately evoke Long Beach Island. The story follows Jim Gordon, an energy entrepreneur who made a fortune selling fossil fuel plants but now decides to get into alternative energy in the form of wind power. More airtime seems to go the way of the non-governmental organizations that spring up either against or in defense of the project: one was Save Our Sound Alliance, another was Clean Power Now. A vehement media melee


By MICHAEL MOLINARO n its four years, the Lighthouse International Film Festival has made a point to select films with subject matter specific to the Jersey Shore: surfing, skateboarding or, in the case of this past weekend, two stellar and poignant “Spotlight Films” on environmental issues. “Chasing Ice,” winner of the Audience Award for Best Spotlight Film, puts to rest any confusion over whether the world’s largest glaciers are melting at an increased rate. “Cape Spin: An American Power Struggle,” documented possibly the most important battle for alternative energy of our time. “Chasing Ice” follows the efforts of National Geographic photographer Jim Balog, who goes from skepticism to activism as he captures three year’s worth of time-lapse photography at several of the world’s largest glaciers and shows the increased rate at which they are receding. The stunningly beautiful footage at one point includes the largest “calving” event ever caught on film, when a portion of a glacier the size of Manhattan breaks apart, flips over and is eventually washed away. The film follows the photographer’s adventures and struggles, and attempts to convince the audience that the increases in fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and tsunamis throughout the world can all be attributed to climate change and global warming due to greenhouse gas emissions. Along the way, charts and graphs depict how carbon dioxide levels increase at an alarming rate, and that reaching 500 parts per million in the atmosphere could cause a significant climate change in the world with a rise of several feet in sea level. The star of the show is truly the ice itself, appearing like the work of some alien architect and opening the audiences’ eyes and mouths wide with wonder, amazement and fear – just so much vibrant, shining, “God is Love” beauty and humanity shooting back at them from the big screen. Providence Torres and her husband, Don Pruden, both 78, of Riverdale were both in attendance. Pruden is a member of the Pequannock River Coalition, which monitors the Pequannock

From New Zealand to the New Jersey Shore

Actress Filming MTV Series ‘Underemployed’


ichelle Ang, a 28-year-old actress about to star in the upcoming MTV series “Underemployed,” was one of many special guests at the “Breakfast With the Filmmakers” event held at the Gateway on Sunday morning. Born in Christchurch, New Zealand and of Malaysian descent, Ang comes from the same Wellington acting scene as Jermaine Clement of “Flight of the Conchords” fame and has previously starred in two independent films alongside Clement. A producer of “Flight of the Conchords” is a director for the “Underemployed” series. Ang was at the Lighthouse Film Festival in support of “My Wedding and Other Secrets,” which, as she explains, she felt lucky to have even made the cut. “What was unfortunate about this film was the producers and production company naturally wanted to recuperate their losses so they decided to make the film a romantic comedy and more commercial. A lot of the

big film festivals have a certain idea of the culture they want to create, so having a film that comes across as too entertaining makes it commercial, and means they don’t want it as part of their selection because it isn’t ‘festival’ enough. Lighthouse has a great selection.” Ang is well known in New Zealand due to previous television work, and will surely be more recognized by American audiences once the upcoming MTV series airs. The show is about a quarter of the way through filming and will most likely air its dozen 1-hour episodes this fall or winter. Craig Wright, who previously worked on “Lost” and “Six Feet Under,” will produce “Underemployed.” “It’s about five best friends that graduate from Northwestern College in Chicago and they are all pursuing their dreams. My character wants to be a novelist. And then they get out into this economy and it sucks! And it’s about the realities of trying to carve out a living in the world that we live in right now while also having friendships that kind of

bore you through the rough times. It’s super Chicago-centric, with filming on the L-Train and at a lot of the familiar buildings in the city.” The series will follow what has been a resurgence of narrative series from MTV of late that includes shows like “I Just Want My Pants Back” and others. “Ours is a lot more graduated in stronger challenges than where your next party’s going to be at. Ours is kind of a bit more about the existential questions about making yourself be the person that you want to be and how that kind of clashes with the real world sometimes.” In comparing LBI to her homeland of New Zealand, Ang admitted, “We don’t have clams nearly as good as you guys have. You have some incredible ones here,” Ang said of the meal she had the night before at Pinky Shrimp’s Seafood Company in Ship Bottom. “I like the vibe and I like the people. And this whole long, straight stretch is intriguing to me. I might take a bike ride down the beach later.” — Michael Molinaro

with local fishermen to truly understand their perspective. Cape Wind is currently collecting investments for its expected $2.5 billion construction cost that include $800 million in government subsidies. Issues raised by both sides concerning the 24-square mile project range from a disturbed view from the beaches five miles away that was mocked by “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, to the effect on fishermen and ocean life – it turns out the turbine pedestals form habitats for mollusks and other sea life much like a shipwreck off Barnegat Light. NIMBY (Not in my back yard) issues were raised even from the late Sen. Ted Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who normally supports environment causes. At one point in the film, it begged the question from a pro-wind energy lobbyist, “It’s five and a half miles in the Atlantic… How big is their f***ing backyard?!” Similar issues influenced the Long Beach Township Board of Commissioners to approve an ordinance in May 2011 stipulating that wind energy turbines can only be erected on properties two acres and larger. In addition, the measure sets a maximum allowable height of 40 feet and requires a 100-foot setback from the property line. The concern stemmed after homeowner Michael Mercurio was issued a permit for construction in 2006 for a wind turbine in his back yard, sparking controversy from neighbors and conversation on the subject of wind energy units on small lots. The municipality and Mercurio eventually settled the case, and Mercurio took down the wind turbine. John Petralia, a member of the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences Science Committee, revealed the location where a wind turbine may be built behind one of the Foundation’s buildings, with much of its 24 acres of land outstretching in the distance.

Those people deserve an award just for running the festival.” Making its world premiere at the festival was “Embedded,” which some touted as a “scary creature flick,” though Don Knodel – who produced and acted in the film – called it an “action thriller” emphasizing the character development and social commentary influenced by 1970s movies such as “Jaws.” Knodel was there along with writer and director Micheal (spelled right) Bafaro, who hail from Vancouver. The film, which was shot in September 2010, had appeared at no previous festivals and survived the selection process that includes hundreds of other film submissions, not to mention those that are discovered at other festivals. “In these times where so many movies are made now … to be invited to any film festival is an honor, and then to win something is very special,” said Bafaro. “I thought I was done (making films). I thought maybe it was time to move on. I love the film industry so much and I love what I do, but the industry has gone through this thing where you’re either making small movies or you’re making a $300 million film. You hit a certain age where you have to say, ‘I have to make what I love.’” Lighthouse Film Festival Managing Director Christine Rooney of Surf City was pleased to see attendance numbers went up significantly this year following the acquisition of several grants that increased advertising for newspapers, radio, a billboard and more. “We sold probably five times as many All-Access passes than we had any other year and attendance was up 51 percent,” said Rooney of the passes that grant entrance to an all-you-can-

HOME BASE: Red Bank STYLE: Surf pop, blending the classic surf sounds of the Beach Boys and The Lively Ones with the pop sensibility of The Kinks and Chris Isaak. The band’s live set is a fun and energetic mix of original pop songs and surf instrumentals, with thoughtful covers of ’60s pop and surf such as “Pipeline,” “Stoked” and “Then (She) Kissed Me.” Additional influence comes from the directions of Brit pop and reggae, as well as the band members’ own punk, posthardcore and indie rock roots. LINEUP: Vincent Minervino, vocals, guitar, keyboard; Scott Saint Hilaire, guitar, vibe; Aaron Leonovich, bass; Dan Tojeira, drums, percussion. SOUND BYTE: “Summer is not a season – it’s a state of mind.” The band derives inspiration from real life and, more specifically, summertime at the Jersey Shore – surfing, cars, girls, drinks and adventure. Every time the guys hang out together, “We totally need to write a song about this!” is a common refrain. TWO’S TAKE: No kidding, The Brigantines will support the legendary “king of the surf guitar” Dick Dale at Joey Harrison’s Surf Club in Ortley Beach on July 24, which is also the release date for The Brigantines’ debut fulllength CD, Vacation! CHECK OUT: OUT: BE THE JUDGE: Saturday, June 9, at noon, at the Long Beach Township municipal complex, during LBIfest. —V.L. see number of films as well as afterparties and special events. “At this film festival you get an opportunity at our parties and our panels to mingle with organizers and filmmakers alike. At other festivals it’s a ‘cattle call,’ and they’re very expensive. We have tried very hard to be reasonable to the public. We are free to college students, free to the military. Filmmakers want the grassroots reaction; they want to share their art with the people. It’s a close, accessible relationship.” The average person saw four films this year, according to surveys. “Our goal is for everyone to see great films and give the opportunity to learn

about films and filmmakers – their hopes and dreams and aspirations. Most of all, we want to entertain, we want to educate, and we want you to have a lot of fun. A film festival should be an experience.” Looking to the future, Rooney hinted at the long-desired addition of outdoor screenings at night, though she realizes the risk that weather poses. Rooney emphasized the importance of contributions from a plethora of local businesses such as Dutchman’s that made any number of donations. “It’s all about doing things for local groups and local events and

whatever promotes the area. That’s a big factor, and an international film festival, you don’t have anything much bigger than that to get going,” said Dutchman’s owner David Schmid. Above all else, Rooney acknowledged the work of whom she called “the world’s best volunteers.” “They’re mostly local people, they’re part of the community, and they really give a lot,” she said. “For the past month prior to the festival, some work 12- to 14-hour days. We do everything. This is a total grassroots, bottom-up organization of about 70 people.” The motto for the festival this year

was “Come for the films, stay for the fun and the sun.” Prince was thankful the sun was indeed out all weekend. “So many filmmakers told me, ‘I didn’t know this place existed, this place is incredible,’” he said. “They were thrilled and surprised as to how beautiful it was, and all said they will definitely be back. Everyone I spoke to said they would be back next year.” The festival will continue with monthly screenings at the LBI Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies through its Lighthouse Film Society, which can be joined at, granting free access to them and other benefits towards next year’s festival. *

Continued from Page 32, Sec. 2 as Jill’s co-worker Sharon. Grab two bags of popcorn for “Gone.” Folks who like animated films might like “The Secret World of Arrietty,” a Japanese film about the Clocks, a family of 4-inch-tall people who live in the home of regular-sized humans and who borrow what they need, never allowing themselves to be seen. All this changes, of course, when 14-year-old Arrietty is discovered by the son of the family whose home they’re sharing. The borrowers, as the tiny people call themselves, do not allow themselves to be seen, and when Arrietty is discovered, this places a great burden on them. Treat yourselves to three bags of popcorn for this film, which looks like Japanese anime but has much wisdom. A very disturbing film, and one that will keep you thinking for a long time, is “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” Starring Tilda Swinton as Eva, a mother who watches her son Kevin grow more and more monstrous, then feels ineffective about doing anything to help him, the film begins with an occurrence that motivates the rest of the action. The fi rst five minutes of “We Need to Talk about Kevin” is remarkable filmmaking, with director Lynne Ramsay holding everything together in a sublime way. It’s not easy to watch, but it explains Eva’s withdrawn nature and her inability to match eye contact with people and to fulfill her life. Three different actors play Kevin at various ages, but it’s Ezra Miller who captures the brooding teen perfectly. John C. Reilly, an excellent actor, is Kevin’s father, totally ineffective at everything. Grab four bags of popcorn for “We Need to Talk About Kevin.” Then be prepared to stay up tonight. The Submarine movie of the week: Before she made her name with “The Hurt Locker,” Kathryn Bigelow directed a fi ne film in “K-19: The Widowmaker,” the story of Russia’s fi rst nuclear ballistic submarine, which, during its maiden voyage, developed problems with the reactor in the North Atlantic and eventually had to be scuttled. With Harrison Ford affecting a Russian accent as the captain and Liam Neeson as his exec, the film boasts two fi ne actors. It is the plot of the film, though – how to keep the reactor incident contained and not bring about a nuclear war – that was certainly very timely. Bigelow does a great job with “K-19: The Widowmaker,” and the film deserves four bags of popcorn and your comfiest chair. Also for your consideration… Harry Belafonte aficionados will want to watch “Sing Your Song,” a doc on DVD that traces the life story of the singer-actor. With a healthy dose of his famous calypso music and his strong sense of activism, Belafonte is certainly an interesting figure. A film that deserves some attention, since it has just been released to Blu-ray and since we just celebrated it the other week, is “Memorial Day,” about a troubled Iraq war vet whose grandfather is a troubled World War II vet, and both men are facing similar combat issues. With




James Cromwell and Jonathan Bennett as the grandfather and grandson. This is another one that will keep you thinking. Television fans of a certain age will remember “Route 66” from the early 1960s, the Corvette, and Martin Milner and George Maharis as the stars. The complete series has just been released to DVD, all 116 episodes, so if nostalgia is a goal, try getting this to watch. It’s really cool. So is the show’s theme music. The top five rental movies, as tabulated by the rental giant Redbox, are as follows: at number five, “The Vow,” with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams; at number four, “Gone,” see above; at number three, “The Woman in Black”; at number two, “Man on the Ledge”; and at number one, the Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale film, “Contraband.” Let’s keep a good thought this week, and don’t let the Wildwoods beach victory bum you out. LBI’s beaches can’t be beat. We know that already, but we also need to get up there and enjoy them. Let’s plan on that, and I’ll see you in two.

Liquid Lines Continued from Page 30, Sec. 2 wouldn’t see any waves until late in the month. I’m not banking on anything. The Island enjoyed another Lighthouse International Film Fest last weekend, and the hard work by local volunteers and staff was evident. I

went down and checked out “Come Hell or High Water” at the LBI Historical Museum on Friday night with a room full of bodysurf aficionados. It’s just an amazing film: fun with fantastic cinematography. My 6-year-old nephew, 66-yearold father and I were all mesmerized. I actually cut my surf session short on Saturday morning to ride my handplane. Potentially the biggest board trend last summer was the Catch-Surf Beater Boards. These softies, which can be ridden in or outside of

A FAMILY AFFAIR: One finds assorted wave riding craft in the quiver of Caroline Unger (rear), including an old funshape, three soft top boards ‘for the husband and children,’ an early-’80s quad, a Hansen Featherlight, a Pau Hana Standup paddle raceboard, a surf ski and a racing kayak. the swimming areas, have been souped up and released for 2012, available at Surf Shack South, Farias’ and Wave Hog. The ESA Central New Jersey district is looking to run its second LBI Triple Crown event brought to you by Surf Unlimited at 122nd Street in Long Beach Township this weekend. This event will feature a new sponsor in Speakeasy Pizzeria – free ’za for all competitors at lunchtime! Don’t forget that this Saturday is LBIfest at Sales & Rental Specialists 68th Street in Brant Beach. This event stretches Serving LBI and the Mainland from Bayview Park across the Boulevard to the ball fields, the township building and even the beach with vendors, activities, music and fun. For the watersports enthusiast, South End Surf and Paddle will offer SUP demos and Surf Unlimited will have an Exclusive Ugg Boot booth. Word is that the Australian wool-lined boot makers will be raising their prices across the board as of July 1 and this is your last chance at discounted Uggs. (As a fashion note, this is not an excuse to wear Uggs and boardshorts.) Local apparel company Jetty will be on hand. Also, check out the artwork by Mary Tantillo’s SwellColors Glass Studio and Cheryl Syminink of The C Glass Studio, both local wave riders. You can also check out a set by the surf-rockinspired Brigantines. Looking ahead, the ever-popular Hurley Rip My Shred Stick tour will be back on the Island, doing a free event with Farias’ on June 30. But don’t look too far ahead; June’s been pretty good to us. *

Through the ESA, Emery met Kali Parks, a competitive surfer from Florida. They were married in February and now live in Manahawkin. In 2011, he added to his responsibility by taking the reins as director of the Central New Jersey district when longtime director Scott Goodwin stepped down. “Pat is a great district leader. He is always on top of things, making sure that everything and everyone gets treated fairly. He is easy to talk to and always interested in what's best for all the competitors,” is the opinion of Jessica Kwiecinski, 17, of Jackson. With the local events added in, Emery is directing another 10 contests between April and October. Three of those take place at 67th Street in Long Beach Township, collectively known as the LBI Triple Crown. The next one is slated for June 9 or 10. And it’s all strictly volunteer work. To prove he’s still got it, Emery won the East Coast Senior Men’s title last September. And the next crop of East Coast talent has everything to gain from him. *
