N.J. Attorney Representing Birthers Is No Nut But a Man With Mission By BILL BONVIE f you’re among those who thought that the “issue” surrounding the place and circumstances of President Obama’s birth had been laid to rest along with The Donald’s bid to replace him in the Oval Ofﬁce, you may be a bit taken aback to learn that, like the “mad monk” Rasputin, it simply refuses to die. In fact, not only is it very much alive, but – just in case you hadn’t heard – it now seems to have made New Jersey its legal domicile. This may seem a bit surprising when you consider that it was some 250 or so members of the – surprise – Arizona Tea Party who have been credited with its resurrection and relocation to these parts. It was those determined desert dwellers, in fact, whose signed petition last year convinced their state’s fabled no-nonsense lawman, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to “set things right” by forming a “posse” (no, I’m not making this up) to investigate whether a forged birth certiﬁcate was being used to put Obama’s name on the Arizona ballot. This “cold case posse,” comprised of “law enforcement ofﬁcers and lawyers with law enforcement experience,” has since “interviewed dozens of witnesses and examined hundreds of documents,” as well as taking “numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.”
Pledge Not Honored To the Editor: Upon the receipt of their primary election sample ballots, voters of Long Beach Island and some nearby Southern Ocean County municipalities will note that because of redistricting, they will now be voting for a representative in the 2nd Congressional District. The current representative is Republican Frank LoBiando, who was ﬁrst elected in 1994 and is running for re-election to his 10th term. In 1994, the Democrats had had majority control of the House of Representatives for 40 years. In order to contrast the public service outlook of their intentions with those of long-serving Democrats, many Republican House candidates throughout the country that year pledged to limit the number of terms they would serve. To their credit, when their self-imposed limit was up, many of those who were elected that year honored their pledge, regardless of their re-election prospects. Among those who failed to honor their term-limit pledge was Rep. LoBiando. His justiﬁcation has been that “the people still want me.” Obviously, if that were not the case, a term-limit pledge would be unnecessary. Partisans of Rep. LoBiando would say that he is merely acting as a wise politician. So be it. But it seems to me that either he never intended to honor his term-limit pledge at the time it was made or he has performed a 180-degree ﬂip-ﬂop in his attitude toward his pledge. Second District voters who would prefer a candidate who stands by what she says would be better served by voting for the Democratic candidate in the general election, Cassandra Shofer. Thomas Waldron Barnegat Light Continued on Page 9
Or at least, that’s the way the effort is described on the legal brief received earlier this month by the New Jersey Division of Elections as the basis of an “objection” to Obama’s nomination in the upcoming presidential election. The case outlined in the brief – which alleges that the president is also known by such names as “Barry Soetoro” and “Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah” – has since been dismissed on a technicality having to do with the timing of a challenge to his eligibility, but is reportedly in the process of being appealed to a judiciary panel. Now you might understandably be of the opinion that people who after all this time still insist on disputing the authenticity of the president’s birth certiﬁcate are, well, certiﬁable. And some very well may be. But Mario Apuzzo, the Jamesburg-based attorney who has instituted this particular action on a pro bono basis, struck me as a perfectly rationalsounding individual during a recent hour-long phone interview I had with him. This was my impression, even though some of his rhetoric may have seemed at times to be just a bit “over the top” (but I’ll let you be the judge of that). In fact, Apuzzo, a registered Republican who is representing two friends of his, Republican Nicholas Purpora of Monmouth County and Democrat (no, that’s not a typo) Theodore Moran of Ocean County, was patient enough to provide detailed answers to some questions I’ve long wanted to ask a coherent spokesperson for the so-called “birthers.” He began by emphasizing that this is “not some kind of cult thing,” but “strictly a legal issue.” He also wanted me to know he’s not a “nut job,” but rather “an attorney who wants to make sure the Constitution and the rule of law is respected,” especially in regard to the ofﬁce of the presidency. “That’s a singular position,” he pointed out. “The president has enormous powers. Who the president is can drastically change the institutions of your
nation.” To back up that assertion, he noted that when Obama ﬁrst ran for the ofﬁce, he had announced his intent to bring about the “transformation” of the nation. Apuzzo’s reason for raising a legal challenge to Obama’s candidacy is his basic dissatisfaction with “how the Republicans have handled this issue. The party has resources and power to initiate an investigation, and they refuse to do it. They don’t want to call it a cause. And (this has made) a lot of people very upset.” He attributes this avoidance of the issue to the fear that politicians have of becoming discredited by ridicule, of being relegated to “the ranks of loony tunes.” The challenge to Obama’s eligibility to serve as president is one that the attorney says
hinges not just on the question of whether he was born in the United States, but on his “not being a natural-born citizen,” which Apuzzo believes would require both his parents to have been citizens. He describes it as an opportunity for states to “vet” Obama that they didn’t have during the 2008 campaign – an effort he says has since been undertaken by “patriot researchers.” But he’s not delusional about its chances of success. “I can think I have the best case in the world, but all bets are off in this environment,” he declared. But why persist in making this case, which Apuzzo has been involved in doing since November 2008? “First of all, for history’s sake or purity’s Continued on Page 9
Let It Be: Shack Deserves Death With Dignity By REBECCA GEE t’s a place we all know well. Those of us who lived or grew up on the Island have seen it practically every day. It’s not anyone’s home, but to some I understand it makes them feel at home to see that falling-down, slightly off-kilter shambles in the marsh. It means they have returned to their Island. I know the new owner is hoping to rebuild the Shack, and frankly it sort of ticks me off. I had honestly been hoping she would collapse or wash away before this would happen. I know my opinion will cause various reactions, but hear me out before you decide to call me a heretic or unfaithful to my Island roots. The Shack is an icon, true. She – and yes, the Shack is a she, taking on a humanistic trait like a boat or a car; how many times after a wicked winter storm have you asked someone if the Old Girl is still standing? – is part of our collective family. This is part of why I am ticked off that people want to refurbish her. It’s like a grand old dame being thrown on a gurney and cut up and pieced back
FIFTEEN YEARS AGO: The Shack, seen here in a SandPaper ﬁle photo from 1997, has gone to ruin in recent years. together. It’s worse than a facelift, not a nip/ tuck but a complete makeover, and all anyone has to do is think of Joan Rivers or a hundred other aging stars to know that once a woman has had a facelift she is never the same, and you don’t look at her the same way. Part of why we take pictures of her or paint pictures of her, our simple Shack by the bridge, is that she’s crumbling, getting older by the minute and, like our aging family mem-
bers, we want things to remember her by. As the shingles fall off or the roof caves in, we are reminded of how precious time is; how we should stop and enjoy the view of the sunset behind her, the birds resting on her bare beams, or the water around her; how life is a series of places, people and memories we hold in common. And like our aging family members, she teaches us about the seasons of life, her young heyday, her many years full of excitement and wild stories, her later empty years, her beautiful days in the sun, and her long desperate winters – how she survived them all. As with an aging relative, we also need to think of her future, and I for one think she should not be pulled apart and tightened up, trussed up to look different, like a pathetic, aging former starlet trying to relive her youth. I think she has served her family well; she has made us all proud, shown us courage in the face of all the elements, and stood through what has come her way. And if we truly care about her, we will let her go with dignity, standing up to the elements as long Continued on Page 10

It’s Insulting The following was received with a request for publication. Dear Sen. Menendez: I’ve waited one full year to see if President Obama would ﬁnally back off about how “he” was so instrumental in the ﬁnal demise of Osama Bin Laden. Get real! Congress (both parties) ties the hands of the military just to get the big photo
op. OK, last year it came to be. President Obama happened to be in the president’s seat. With all the bluster anyone could imagine, he started with the “I” problem. As anyone whoever wore a military uniform knows, this is how it goes: The tens of thousands who accomplish a mission get some recognition, and that’s it for now. Here we are a full year later and our president is still using the “I.” To me, this is more than insulting. President Obama happened to be the sitting president at the time of the military accomplishment. He did nothing more than nod his head to release the congressional restriction. Continued on Page 10

The SandPaper/Wednesday, May 9, 2012
Continued from Page 6 sake, the record should always be corrected if a mistake has been made. That shows you’re a serious nation, a nation of laws, a nation of justice. ... The integrity of the electoral process is absolutely critical in a democracy and a republic such as the United States. It goes to the heart of the consent of the governed.” Then, in a surprising admission (one of a couple, actually), Apuzzo acknowledged that when it comes to running the country, it might well be possible “for a foreigner do a better job than a natural born citizen ... because that foreigner could actually have more love and attachment to the country than a natural born citizen.” But the reasons the founding fathers put the strictures they did on who can be president, he maintained, were twofold: They wanted to steer clear of both the Old World’s monarchical tendencies and “foreign inﬂuence.” And while Obama obviously has no hereditary royal connections, he is in fact bringing just such “foreign inﬂuence” into our government. How so? By virtue of “his idea of the place of America in the world. He wants to somehow right the wrongs of America, or whatever he considers the wrongs. ... I’ve never seen a president going around and apologizing for America (and saying) that it did all these terrible things in the past. I’ve never seen that in my lifetime – this feeling that America has acted improperly to get where it is. That’s not very American,” he declared. In addition to which, “We don’t want someone who’s going to give the ruling of our military over to the United Nations.” (OK, I did add the disclaimer that some people might ﬁnd his rhetoric a bit over the top.) And as evidence of the foreign inﬂuence Obama’s introduced into the Oval Ofﬁce, one only needs to see how “he’s got foreign nations rooting for him” and the way they “had a big party in the Kenyan parliament ” when he was elected, with one ofﬁcial reportedly wanting to “commend the Americans for voting for someone who was born in Kenya.” Let’s just suppose Apuzzo did succeed in proving his case, and Obama was subsequently shown to be ineligible to serve as president – not just in New Jersey, but throughout the nation. Where would we go from there? Would Obama’s entire presidency – the programs he’s created, legislation he’s signed – become instantly nulliﬁed? Apuzzo’s answer was no. In that event, we would simply follow the mechanisms put in place by the Constitution. For example, he said, the 25th Amendment covers the case of “the president becoming unable to carry out his functions. That’s not just limited to mental disability.” Or Congress might decide to impeach him. “In either case, you just follow the line of succession.” But, he acknowledged “it’s a big deal to remove a sitting president. Right now, we’re talking about an election year and taking him off the ballot.” “By the time the courts and Congress got around to acting,” he noted, “we’d already be into the next presidential term.” As for what would become of Obama’s acts as president, “a legal doctrine called the de facto ofﬁcer doctrine” would then kick
in, Apuzzo explained. Its intent, he said, is to maintain order in the kind of situation where, say, a mayor was deemed ineligible to hold his position because he didn’t live in town. Under such circumstances, “the law says we’re going to keep everything (he did) in place. Now, someone could mount a challenge to something, but generally speaking, we’re not going to go around and start nullifying everything. If you did, it could cause a tremendous amount of chaos.” But he added, “The de facto ofﬁcer doctrine has never been applied to a president of the United States because we’ve never had a situation where the president wasn’t legitimate.” Never? Well, I then asked, what about Obama’s predecessor? While much has been made of the facts that George W. Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 and the pivotal Florida results were hotly contested before the U.S. Supreme Court put an end to a recount, far less publicity has been given the questions raised about the 2004 election results. Since Apuzzo indicated he was unaware of the latter controversy, I thought I’d brieﬂy acquaint him with the allegations that on election night, the results from Ohio, which exit polls had indicated would go to John Kerry, were clandestinely transferred to a partisan Republican server site in Tennessee, where the count came out for Bush instead, deciding the election in his favor. I even read him a paragraph or two of the article “New ﬁling reveals how the 2004 presidential election was hijacked” written by Bob Fitrakis, the co-counsel for what’s known as the “King Lincoln Bronzeville vs. Blackwell” challenge to the Ohio count, and e-mailed him the rest. (The ﬁling involved includes the deposition of Michael Connell, who ran the actual vote-counting operation, taken shortly before his death in a mysterious plane crash.) And then I asked him if he were to be given convincing evidence that Bush was returned to ofﬁce on the basis of fraudulent election results, would he be willing to take that case on as well. “Yes, I would,” he replied, emphasizing that even though he had voted for Bush, he would “wholeheartedly” take such a case, “whether to make a presentation to Congress or whatever” including helping law enforcement. “I would blog about it. I would do whatever has to be done” (although not necessarily on a pro bono basis, since he has to make a living). It was, to say the least, a most encouraging conclusion to the interview. Because what I would really like to have happen is for an attorney with Apuzzo’s persistence and dedication to making sure “the Constitution and the rule of law is respected” to help us get to the bottom of what could well be the most brazen instance of election theft in the history of the republic. And if he were successful, do you suppose we might even convince Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to take enough time out from locking up folks who look or sound Hispanic to form a “cold-case posse” for the purpose of rounding up the perpetrators involved?

Continued from Page 6 as she can on her own footings. And we will go on to ﬁnd another rising star of the Island to captivate our senses on our trip home. This idea to save her is not really the Island way. We live here; we know that nature is remarkable. We watch the sands shift with every tide, we see inlets change practically overnight, we watch small islands sink and re-emerge. The true deﬁnition of a barrier island is a landmass that is fragile, constantly changing, part of an ecosystem that is vital to coastal geology and ecology. We are simply meant to change. I know some will argue that rebuilding her is a change, but it’s not really. It’s a sad attempt to redo something that can’t be redone. We have seen it before. Ask anyone who grew up with the Lucy Evelyn if the ship that is at Schooner’s Wharf now is a replacement for her, and they will tell you it’s a nice ship, but it’s no Lucy. Lucy was special. She had a story, and even in her demise she provided us with a story. Anyone in Beach Haven will tell you where he or she was on that bitter, cold night Lucy burned. Ask anyone who went to Surﬂight’s old theater. Some of you know the one I am talking about, with the tin roof that stopped shows whenever there was a rainstorm. The Surﬂight now is a nice theater, but it’s not the Surﬂight I went to every Sunday as a kid or apprenticed in, with folding chairs and a stage as big as a postage stamp. You had to watch your toes in the audience because sometimes the actors would step on them. I am not knocking these places. They are nice and have been “saved,” but they are not the same, and the Shack won’t really be the same either … and people won’t feel the same about her after. I have never told a lot of people this, but I will now share this with the world, or at least the few people who might still be reading. When someone I love or care for, or who has simply been special to me, dies, I go the beach. I have done it since I was a little girl. I was about 9 when my Nana died. She
was the only grandparent I had known really well. In fact, due to some really awful timing, her funeral was on my birthday. I ran away from home when I was told she had died. It was only for two hours or so, back when you left home by yourself for an hour or two and no one worried because there were only a handful of people around in the winter and everyone knew each other. And you eventually went home because where else would you go? I went to the beach in March and sat bundled in my coat, crying my eyes out, tears frozen on my cheeks. After what seemed like forever, I stopped crying and started picking up shells. I came across this beautiful purple one. It was just an old clamshell but had such a rich purple color that it reminded me of my Nana. She was born in February and her birthstone was that color. I held it for a long time. And then I remembered something that had been told to me about everything being born out of the sea, life coming from the ocean, rising from the tide. I would love to say I put it all together then, but it was years later that I could explain it better. I held that Nana Shell, kissed it and then threw it as far out to sea as I could, giving it back to where it came from. Ever since, I have gone to the beach, found a reminder of a person who mattered to me and said “see you later” and given these items back. This way I know they are out there, and I may stumble across part of them again or ﬁnd a bit of them when I go to pick up shells. A bit of wood reminded me of my uncle who carved fun toys for us. A beautiful, white oyster shell with bits of blue in it reminded me of the old Irishman with the piercing blue eyes who always called me “pretty” and made amazing fudge. Getting back to the Shack, I propose we treat her just like someone we love. We should enjoy her while she is part of our lives, let her go with dignity and in her own time, and then give her back to the sea. When we see a piece of wood along the shore, we should remember her with love and know she has gone home, and life on the Island has changed with the tide. So all is right with the world.

Continued from Page 9 I realize President Obama is reading publicly what is put on his teleprompter, and this should be taken into consideration. This is why I am writing to you, Sen. Menendez, and asking your assistance on this issue. Tell the writers not just to tone it down, but to knock it off! I’m sure anyone afﬁliated with the military will remember this steady barrage of B.S. at voting time. William H. Rickards Ship Bottom

To the Editor: The men and women of the public works and water and sewer departments rarely get the praise they deserve. When a water pipe breaks or a beach access needs repair or a township street needs attention, these departments are there to ﬁx the problem. They are the people who keep Long Beach Township running. They are there when you need them. I simply want to say “thank you.” Bill Thompson Haven Beach
Thanks To the Editor: Thank you very much to the LBI Garden Club for the ﬂoral May basket. It certainly is appreciated. God’s blessings. Eva E. Roth Surf City

Rabies Clinics Planned on LBI
he Long Beach Island Health Department is planning free rabies vaccination clinics at three locations Saturday morning, May 12. Shots will be administered from 9 to 9:30 a.m. at the Beach Haven Firehouse; 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. at the Long Beach Township Municipal Building in Brant Beach; and 10:30 to 11 a.m. at the Surf City Firehouse. Dan Krupinski, health inspector and clinic coordinator, said appointments are not necessary. Pets must be brought in leashed or in a carrier. “For puppies, the shots are usually good for a year,” said Krupinski. “For full-grown dogs, they should be good for three years because they have stronger immune systems. We hope we can reach out to dog and cat owners on various parts of the Island and that they take advantage of this program.” For more information, call the health department at 609-492-1212. —E.E.

tand up and paddle the bay! The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences is offering a number of stand up paddleboard classes this month and next, in the water off Sunset Park in Harvey Cedars. Instructor AnnMarie Deakyne will provide quality equipment to take students – both beginners and more advanced SUPers – out on Barnegat Bay. “The great news for stand up paddling enthusiasts and newcomers is that our mild temps have made it possible to get into the water early!” said Deakyne, owner of Island Surf and Sail in Brant Beach. “Many of my clients and friends have enjoyed serene mornings paddling on the bay through the month of April.” Introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding lessons, for ages 13 to adult, will be held as follows: 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 12; 9-10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 16; 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 9; and 9-10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 13. Novice and experienced paddlers are welcome. The cost per lesson is $45, or $30 for LBIF members. Advanced Stand Up Paddleboarding classes will be held 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, and 10-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 9. “Expand your understanding of this exciting sport in a safe and controlled environment with quality equipment,” the LBIF brochure states. “This advanced class will include more of a challenge, with more time on the water, paddling into the wind, practice with turns, and a fast pace!” The cost per advanced lesson is $50, or $35 with the LBIF member discount. “I just love SUP because it is an opportunity for all ages and abilities to get out on the water and enjoy a new perspective,” Deakyne noted. “Hope to see you on the water!” Classes include instruction, board and paddle. When registering, please provide cell phone number, height and approximate weight to ensure appropriate board sizing. If winds exceed 10 mph the morning of the class, it will be rescheduled. For more information or to sign up for a lesson, call the LBI Foundation at 609-494-1241. — Juliet Kaszas-Hoch

Interfaith Group Presents Cahal Dunne
local outreach group serving the elderly is presenting a concert featuring “Cahal Dunne’s Grand to Be Irish Show” on Monday, May 21, 7 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Parish Center on McKinley Avenue in Manahawkin. Joan Caldarella, program assistant, said proceeds benef it Interfaith Health and Support Services of Southern Ocean County. The non-proﬁt organization assists frail elderly residents by providing transportation for medical appointments and food shopping. “We also offer respite care, reassuring phone calls and visits,” said Caldarella. “Just about all of our people are volunteers, and we serve Lacey Road south through Little Egg Harbor Township.” She said the organization comprises 24 congregations, as well as Southern Ocean County Medical Center in Manahawkin and St. Francis Community Center in Brant Beach. “I have not seen Cahal Dunne perform, but from what people have been telling me, he puts on a phenomenal show,” said Caldarella. “He’s very multitalented and will bring his own baby grand piano out on the stage.” Dunne, who was born in Ireland’s County Cork, is the nephew of former Irish Prime
Minister Jack Lynch. Dunne, 49, has lived in Pittsburgh the past 25 years. He said the show would include staples such as “Peg O’ My Heart,” “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” and “Danny Boy.” Other songs include “Music of the Night” from “Phantom of the Opera” and “You Raised Me Up,” a song popularized by Josh Groban with lyrics written by a friend of Dunne’s, Irish songwriter and novelist Brendan Graham. “I will also sing an original song, ‘The Eagle Has Risen,’ which I wrote right after 9-11,” he said. “I’ll also do some other inspiration and patriotic songs, and some country tunes.” Dunne added that he would also perform Tchaikovsky and Mozart piano solos. “I was originally trained as a classical pianist,” he said. “But for this show, I like to speed them up for a little comedic effect.” The entertainer has been featured on his own show, “Cahal Dunne’s Thank You America,” which has been broadcast on PBS. Tickets are $20 per person. Refreshments will be sold during intermission. For tickets, contact the Interfaith ofﬁce at 609-978-3839. — Eric Englund
ON STAGE: (From left) Jannah Tabbachino as Sr. Amnesia, Christina Skleros as Sr. Robert Anne, Lisa Carlson as Sr. Leo and the puppet Sr. Mary Annette in ‘Nunset Boulevard.’ By RICK MELLERUP he Ocean Professional Theatre Company’s production of “Nunset Boulevard” is a miracle, the theatrical equivalent of the raising of Lazarus. Dan Goggin’s “Nunsense,” was irreverent, upbeat, in short, a breath of fresh air when it was launched in 1985. The hilarious musical story of the struggles and follies of the Little Sisters of Hoboken took off, becoming the second-longest-running Off-Broadway show in history, behind only “The Fantasticks.” The original “Nunsense” became a worldwide smash, translated into at least 26 languages with some 8,000 productions now under its belt. Not surprisingly, Goggin decided to make an industry out of “Nunsense,” creating six sequels and three spin-offs. Alas, as any viewer of movie and television sequels and spin-offs can tell you, the result is usually disappointing, if not downright disastrous. Several years ago this reviewer took in a performance of Goggin’s fourth sequel, “Meshuggah-Nuns,” at Beach Haven’s Surﬂight Theatre and panned it severely. Goggin seemed to be running on empty and the Surﬂight production, despite a cast which I knew to be very talented from witnessing previous ventures, sputtered and gasped, barely crossing the ﬁnish line. Indeed, in talking in the intervening years to several of the actresses from that production, I discovered that they agreed with my harsh review – they admitted that they couldn’t wait for the show to close. It had been, even for them, nothing less than painful. So I was rather stunned to see that Steve Steiner, the former artistic director of Surﬂight (yep, the blame for the “Meshuggah-Nuns” ﬁasco has to be ultimately laid on him) and who has now launched his own troupe, would lead off Ocean Professional Theatre Company’s season with yet another “Nunsense” sequel. Well, as the Little Sisters of Hoboken could tell you from long experience, miracles can happen! “Nunset Boulevard” is lively and engaging. The Little Sisters of Hoboken, who are desperately trying to raise money so that their school can put on a production of “Catholic High School Musical,” think they have been booked to play the Hollywood Bowl. In fact, they have a contract to play the Hollywood Bowl-a-Rama. Ouch! The brave sisters, as they always had before when faced with adversity, march on. The fact is that the Reverend Mother, Sister Mary Regina (Angela Shultz); her second-in-command, Sister Mary Hubert (Debra Thais Evans); the wise-cracking Brooklyn-born Sister Robert Anne (Christina Skleros); the dim-witted Sis-
ter Mary Amnesia (Jannah Tabbacchino); and the innocent Sister Mary Leo (Lisa Carlson) soon love being in Hollywood, where everyone dreams of becoming a star. It just so happens that they’re in town when a new ﬁlm is being cast, based on the life of Dolores Hart, a reallife starlet of the early 1960s (she received the ﬁrst movie kiss from Elvis Presley) who quit Hollywood to become a Benedictine nun. The coincidence soon has them all thinking that God is smiling upon them – especially Sister Mary Leo, who dreams of landing the title role and is excited when she receives a callback. Then again, she worries about pulling a Dolores Hart reversal, leaving her vocation to become a star. Will Mary Leo win the coveted role? Will she leave the Little Sisters of Hoboken? Can the sisters raise enough money to save “Catholic High School Musical?” Fluff? You betcha. “Nunset Boulevard” is not about to be confused with ﬁne art. As the ensemble explains in an early song “The Plot,” “Nunsense” shows don’t have much of a story line. But it is fun, perhaps the best “Nunsense” entry since the original. The songs, if eminently forgettable, are entertaining, especially “The Bowling Ball Blues,” “The Hollywood Blondes” and “Whatever Happened To (Baby Jane),” belted out wonderfully by Shutlz. The performances are universally strong, especially those of Evans, who has an enticing stage charisma, and Tabbacchino, who never, for one second, drops the dumbfounded look of Sister Mary Amnesia, who, after all, once suffered a grave injury after being hit in the head by a cruciﬁx. Perhaps, though, what puts “Nunset Boulevard” over the top is its timing and energy. “Messhugah-Nuns,” was performed in the autumn, with some of its cast exhausted from having put on a boot camp-like, end one start another, season of shows. The cast of “Nunset Boulevard” is opening a season, the inaugural season of a new company to boot, and their energy and enthusiasm for the new venture is clearly evident. Putting new life into the “Nunsense” franchise seemed impossible but Shultz, Evans, Skleros, Tabbacchino and Carlson were able to pull it off. Lazarus lives! “Nunset Boulevard” will be performed at 3 p.m. on May 9 and 10, at 2 p.m. on May 12 and 13, and at 8 p.m. on May 10, 11 and 12 at the 600-seat theater of Barnegat High School, 180 Bengal Blvd. in Barnegat. Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for children under the age of 13, and may be purchased at www.oceantheatre.org or at the door. Call 609-312-8306 for more information.

wo Our Gang Players alumni have teamed up to organize a 5K run to raise funds for the organization and bring awareness of the nonproﬁt community theater troupe’s need for a permanent space. The race is Sunday, May 20, rain or shine, at St. Mary’s of the Pines in Manahawkin. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the race going off at 10. Cost to register is $20 in advance or $25 on race day. Proceeds beneﬁt Fred’s Fund, named in memory of Fred Hulick, Our Gang Players Artistic Director Sherry Schnepp’s dad, who was a frequent contributor to productions over the years. Fred’s Fund has been set up for donations designated for Our Gang’s eventual home. Until recently, Our Gang was using the Stafford Township Arts Center building, but policy changes by the local school board made their continued and future privileges there uncertain. Ashley Austin and Heidi Hartmann, each with about three years of racing experience, decided to make good use of their running and event-planning skills, as well as their business relationships within the community, to organize the 5K. As they have observed at previous events, either well or poorly attended, advertising and publicity are essential to drumming up support and generating a good turnout. The race organizers’ goal is to have at least 100 runners/walkers. The USATF-certiﬁed course is described as fast and scenic, along 3.1 miles of tree-lined, quiet, residential streets in Manahawkin and Cedar Run. Participants, both walkers and runners, are welcome to push strollers and baby joggers. Skateboards, rollerblades, bikes and pets are not allowed. The course includes mile markers and two water stations. “Our Gang holds a special place in our hearts,” Austin explained. Both see it as an indispensable community asset that must remain available to serve Southern Ocean County. Austin has been a member of Our Gang since 1989; Hartmann since 1993. The group currently has more than 300 members. In the “old days,” the group operated out of the Barnegat Light ﬁrehouse and put on its shows at the Surﬂight Theatre, Austin recalled. As a young girl, Our Gang taught her the fundamentals of theater, from stage performance to lighting and set construction, even costume design, all under Schnepp’s leadership and built upon the organization’s principle that everyone – actors and theater lovers of all ages and talent levels – deserves the chance to be onstage. “No one is ever turned away from any production,” Austin said. “For many children and adults in the “Go Fly a Kite” Story & Craft, Tuckerton Branch Ocean County Library, 380 Bay Ave. (609-296-1470) The activity is for ages 2-8. 11:30 am.

last 35 years, Our Gang has cultivated selfconﬁdence, a positive self-image, teamwork and lifelong friendships,” she said. “Supporting the arts within your community is extremely important,” in Austin’s opinion. “The theater and arts communities give children and adults a creative outlet to discover their hidden talents.” Our Gang provides numerous opportunities for members to expand upon their natural abilities, both onstage and behind the scenes, she added. Many continue their study of theater in college and beyond, in areas of production, management, performance or music education. And perhaps best of all, Our Gang offers a safe, inclusive, judgment-free environment in which to grow and mature. “A permanent location for rehearsals and performances would enable Our Gang to expand programs and better reach and educate the community,” she said. Hartmann stressed the lasting and farreaching impact Our Gang has made by touching the lives of countless people – not just the Players but also their families, the audiences and the organization’s supporters and sponsors. Hartmann said she gained conﬁdence and skills that she has carried over into her life as an adult, and she wants others to have the same opportunity. “(The 5K) is not about the run,” she said. “It’s about the support.” In other words, sneakers and ﬂip-ﬂops are equally welcome at the starting line. St. Mary’s of the Pines is located at 100 Bishop Lane. Checks are payable to Our Gang Players and should be mailed to South Jersey Running and Triathlon Co., 291 Route 72 East, Manahawkin, NJ 08050. Or register online at southjerseymultisport.com/events. Visit the Facebook event page for additional details. Everyone who pre-registered by May 7 is guaranteed a commemorative T-shirt and goodie bag. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female ﬁnishers.

Electrojunk Has a Second Life, Gets ‘Remixed’ at the Art House By VICTORIA LASSONDE he May exhibit at the Art House Gallery in Manahawkin, “Remixed2: A Collaborative Entanglement of Used Electronics,” drew its inspiration from, of all things, Facebook. The idea: “Someone should stage an art exhibit of works fashioned from outmoded electronic components and accessories. Doesn’t everybody have a box full of miscellaneous spare parts, TV cables, USB cords, earphones and other odds and ends?” With that, gallery director Samantha Palmeri found her exhibit for the month of May. She and her husband, Jon Slackman, collected donations of technoclutter from community members and set about deconstructing, recombining and shaping the “mechanical carnage” into four separate pieces of art, using latex paint, white, yellow, gold, silver, and some resin to pull it all together. In that way, the project became a community-wide collaboration – an incentive for people to offload their junk – and a fun alternative to trashing the items or letting them sit around collecting dust and taking up space. For the artists, the actual construction of the exhibit was executed with “no Ryan Morrill real plan,” Palmeri said, but rather “a HANGING OUT: Palmeri and Slackman’s artistic spontaneous creative process,” whereby choices turn old spare parts from electronics and they laid down cardboard, spread out all appliances into a pleasing, if puzzling, array of art. the parts before them, and simply went by and attracted to the next, smaller, faster thing. to work.

Titanic Survivor Accounts Relived

15, 1912? Audiences will get an idea when the Traveling Literary Theater presents “100 Years: “Titanic Survivors and their Stories” on Tuesday, May 15 at the Barnegat Branch of the Ocean County Library, and Thursday, May 17 at the Stafford branch. Both programs begin at 7 p.m. Maggie Worsdale, who is producing the event, said she worked nearly two years on the script about the doomed ship, in which approximately 1,500 passengers and crew lost their lives. Worsdale used accounts taken from period journals, ofﬁcial inquiries and survivors’ memoirs. The dramatizations will be performed by Worsdale, her husband Tom Worsdale, and James Dyne, who make up the Traveling Literary Theater. They will be wearing period costumes while reading accounts from 35 passengers on the ill-fated maiden voyage. “It is going to be done in a chronological sequence, from the time the ship hit the iceberg to when the survivors were rescued by the Carpathia,” said Worsdale, referring to the Cunard Line cruise ship that picked up the survivors the next morning and transported them to New York. Worsdale said that prior to the performance, there would be 15 minutes of recorded music that was popular at the time.

Band, Coast Guard Auxiliary 5th Division in Manahawkin, Barnegat Light Coast Guard Station Color Guard, Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove (R-Ocean, Burl., Atl.), Beach Haven Exchange Club and Beach Haven Elementary School students. “I think it is especially important for the children to be in the parade and at the ceremony,” said Rohrer. “They need to understand why we have a Memorial Day.” White said that since he became a councilman when the borough changed its government in July 2010, he has sought to place a strong emphasis on the “true meaning of Memorial Day.” “I understand it serves as a kickoff for the summer season, and there are plenty of parties and cookouts,” he said. “But let us not forget about the hundreds of thousands of service men and women who gave their lives for our country. Memorial Day has lost some solemnity over the years.”
Rohrer said the borough has been contacting law enforcement groups, veterans groups, ﬁre departments and town ofﬁcials to participate. David White (no relation to the councilman), commander of Barnegat Light VFW Post 3729, said that any disabled veteran is invited to ride with the Beach Bums Corvette Club. “We welcome all veterans, from World War II to today’s men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said. After the Beach Haven event, the VFW post members conduct a service at the Post 3729 home in Long Beach Township at noon. At 1 p.m., they will hold a service in Ship Bottom outside the municipal building. Rohrer said that groups wishing to participate in the parade could contact her at 609-492-0111, extension 15. Veterans can call White at 508-579-8552. — Eric Englund

FLICK PICKS: Eric Johnson, an organizer for the Lighthouse International Film Festival, reveals details on some of the ﬁlms to be screened this year at the Bayberry Inn on May 5.
Fundraiser Spotlights Festival By MICHAEL MOLINARO f the Lighthouse International Film Festival were a high school student, it would be in its fourth year – a senior – and still growing in every way. Even its fundraisers need more space, as evidenced by the full banquet hall at the Bayberry Inn on Saturday evening. Co-owner Corey Kurica donated the use of the room for the festival fundraiser. “We’re such a small community,” said Kurica, a fan of independent ﬁlm and the arts. “We want to participate in the community to help out in any way we can.” For $45 contributors wined and dined in a picturesque atmosphere, the back bar of the Bayberry banquet room looking like a scene from Kubrick’s “The Shining,” appropriately enough. A seasoned pianist played songs like “It Had to Be You” while some gently sang along. Door prizes were given out, including a skimboard from Island Surf and a surfboard donated by Surf Unlimited. Patrons laughed when an elderly woman who looked like she survived the Great Depression won the sweet sled. Besides the growth of its fundraiser, fans of the festival would be the ﬁrst to ﬁnd out about the growth in the quality of ﬁlms that the festival’s team was able to be procure this year. At least 15 ﬁlms come from major ﬁlm festivals around the world: six from Sundance, three from South By Southwest, and others from Berlin, Toronto, and Tribeca – as well as documentaries from as far as Rotterdam, Netherlands, which boasts one of the most esteemed documentary festivals in the world. “I can’t believe it!” said Charlie Prince, LIFF executive director. “This year it’s really ﬁnally starting to gain momentum.” Eric Johnson, a festival organizer and Prince’s right-hand-man when it comes to ﬁlm selection, went over some of the upcoming highlights. New this year is a 90-minute, catered opening reception on board Miss Barnegat Light for ﬁlmmakers, jurors, major supporters and patron members of the Lighthouse International Film Society, which holds regular monthly screenings throughout the year. This year’s opening ﬁlm will be “For Ellen,” a drama that just made its world premiere at Tribeca and will have its second screening ever at Lighthouse. The story of an aspiring rock star trying to reconcile with his young daughter, it stars Paul Dano of “There Will Be Blood” and “Little Miss Sunshine” fame. The Centerpiece Film this year is Sundance-premiered “Little Birds,” starring Juno Temple, Leslie Mann and Kate Bosworth. Co-producer Keith Fairclough owns a house on Long Beach Island and will be at the festival
to answer questions, along with others who helped create it. Another ﬁlm, “Now Forager,” was partially shot in the Pine Barrens and is the best offering of local ﬂavor this year, according to Johnson. “Especially if you really, really love food,” he said, teasing the culinary-driven romantic drama. “Extracted” was described as the predecessor to “Inception,” having been shot before the highly successful mainstream movie. “Come Hell or High Water” stands out for its unique way of showcasing body surﬁng. It is among several surf ﬁlms that will be shown at the festival. “When you watch 130 surﬁng movies, it takes a lot for one to stand out,” said Prince. “It’s really incredible.” If you’re looking for big stars, “Take This Waltz” is another romantic drama, originally premiered at Toronto and starring Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen. Some ﬁlms have no stars, but are simply powerful documentaries, such as “Chasing Ice,” which played at Sundance and was regarded by Prince as “one of the most important, talked-about independent ﬁlms of the year.” From the makers of “An Inconvenient Truth,” the ﬁlm uses time-lapsed photography to show large portions of ice melting off glaciers that the crew often literally has to chase. “It’s incredibly powerful. The footage is amazing.” “Cape Spin” depicts wind farms that were supposed to be built off Cape Cod, Mass. and captures the battle to do so – paralleling a similar debate going on about wind power use here on LBI today. The festival will certainly remain “International” when it screens ﬁlms like “The Ambassador,” a documentary about a man who attempts to buy an ambassadorship in the blood diamond culture within the Central African Republic, showing the ease behind doing so and the reality of world diplomacy today. For Science Fiction fans, a documentary called “Journey to Planet X” will screen in which two scientists make their own science ﬁction ﬁlms. The funny, heartwarming ﬁlm captures the passion they put into each project. It is that passion from independent ﬁlmmakers, actors and producers that brought tears to the eyes of Fred Shragger – who works logistics for the festival – during a speech he gave to the crowd. “It’s just a wonderful thing to be involved in. The more you get to know them, the more you love them, and the more you want to see their movies,” he said. Continued on Page 58

nyone with historic photos of Manahawkin and vicinity is encouraged to lend them for an upcoming exhibition to be presented jointly by the Stafford Township Historic Preservation Commission and the Stafford Township Historical Society. The “Old Manahawkin Photo Show” will take place 2 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at the newly dedicated Rail Car at Heritage Park on Bay Avenue. Light refreshments will be provided. Preservation Commission secretary Diane Brown said it will be an opportunity for local history lovers to come out and socialize, meet friends old or new, and even offer correction or clariﬁcation of historical facts. Original photos can be scanned and returned to their owners, but the commission would be especially grateful for donations of photographs to include in the Historical Society’s archive. Of particular interest to the commission, Brown explained, are images of: Predmore Hall, the billiards hall and meeting place that stood on Stafford Avenue in the early 1900s, right about where Larry’s Barber Shop now stands, until it was destroyed by ﬁre sometime mid-century; the Methodist Parsonage on North Union Street; the Atlantic Feed Store that was on Route 9 in the area of Manahawkin Lake Park; the home of renowned duck hunter and decoy carver Rube Corliss; the Carr Tavern, which was on the present site of the Super Wawa near the high school; and the original First Aid building, on Letts Avenue. In addition, the Historical Society is interested in ﬁnding photos of the roller-skating rink (now the site of the Manahawkin Flea Market); the airplane gas station on East Bay Avenue; the drive-in movie theater on Route 72 (now the site of the Holiday Inn); the National Hotel (formerly located where the Lakeside Village shopping center is today); and the railroad station. While there is some inevitable crossover between the two groups as they share many of the same members and value historic integrity, the commission and society differ in their functions, Brown explained.

Stafford Township Historic Preservation Commission
PICTURE THIS: The Hall Store (foreground) and the National Hotel, on the north corner of Route 9 and Stafford Avenue, were neighbors in Manahawkin at the turn of the 20th century. chaired by architect Craig Brearley, is a councilappointed advisory body to the township’s planning and zoning boards. Its membership includes attorneys, engineers and historians who identify, celebrate and work toward preserving sites with historic signiﬁcance and value. The society collects photographs and artifacts, records, memorabilia and ephemera for posterity to share with those interested in learning more about the past. Councilman Henry Mancini serves as council liaison to both groups. As a side note, the Historical Society is always willing to offer community service projects to Eagle Scout candidates. Some possibilities, Brown suggested, might be researching, designing and installing informational signs at historic sites, or building picnic tables. One Eagle Scout even salvaged some ironstone from the foundation of the Rosenholm house by the lake at Route
9 when it was taken down, and re-purposed that stone to build a ceremonial ﬁre pit for ﬂag retirement at Heritage Park. For more information about either the photo show or the Eagle Scout projects, contact Diane Brown at 609-597-1000, extension 8522. Anyone interested in getting involved is invited to attend the commission’s open public meetings on the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the municipal meeting room. One of the current issues of interest to the commission is the possibility of the Barnegat Branch Trail, rail-to-trail project being continued south from Barnegat Township through Stafford, which may provide pedestrians and bicyclists with a safer alternative to using and crossing Route 72, Brown said. — Victoria Lassonde firstname.lastname@example.org

Surf City 5&10 Seeks Photos For Anniversary This Summer Marks 60th For LBI Retail Landmark
aunching its 60th Anniversary summer, Surf City 5&10 owners are asking anyone who has an old picture of the store to make a copy and bring or send it in. Celebrating the history of the familyowned beach store is a family endeavor this year, and part of that is assembling photos that could be included in the retro-design web page at www.surfcity5and10.com. Pictures from 1952-1972 would help ﬁll in a gap in the annals of this enduring shore landmark. The Joorman family is filing through their own collection, as well. “There were years that my grandfather took movies and didn’t take pictures,” explained Donna Joorman Schamber, who is now a store co-owner. “From 1952 to 1972, they took a lot of movies and a lot of slides, but not as many pictures.” The store’s history in a nutshell – well, let’s call it a clamshell – is that in 1952, father and son, Jerry and Carl Joorman, opened a small store near the beach in Surf City. The Surf City 5&10 sold everything from salt water taffy, to hardware, to beach supplies. After Carl retired in 1992, his daughters, Donna and Elizabeth, kept up the family tradition with that same nostalgic ﬂair and became the third generation to operate the business. In the 2012 season, they’ll be thanking customers for their loyal support by having events and deals, including giveaways on holiday weekends. Holiday giveaways of commemorative mugs, tote bags and pens are planned, along with popcorn for the kids. Meanwhile this month, Hogpenny Studios in Ship Bottom has the job of transferring the family’s 8-mm ﬁlms into modern digital media on DVDs and photo CDs. Anyone who has a photo they’d like to share – kids posing in front of the store in 1970, for example – may drop off a print copy at the store, 5th Street and the Boulevard. They’d also like to know the name of the person dropping them off, in order to give credit if they are used. (No originals, please; make sure it’s a spare copy; the store can’t be responsible for returning them.) Or e-mail a digital copy to surfcity510@ comcast.net by June 10. —M.S.

SIX POINTS STAND: Drivers heading into the Motor Vehicle Agency in Manahawkin on Monday found that New Jersey did not implement the tougher Tru-ID system that day as planned.
License ID Change Halted; Dig for Documents Later? ACLU Throws Red Light in Front of Tru-ID – for Now By MARIA SCANDALE here are many people whose identity would never be stolen – they can’t ﬁnd it themselves. So it facetiously seems in the Motor Vehicle Agency line, where you’re nobody until somebody okays your paperwork under the current 6-point ID veriﬁcation system for a driver’s license. Requirements would have gotten tougher on Monday, May 7 in the name of national security, but did not – for now. The American Civil Liberties Union ﬁled an injunction that delayed implementation of the stricter “Tru-ID” requirements in New Jersey for people obtaining licenses and permits. Outside the MVC center on Bay Avenue in Manahawkin on Monday, points of view varied broadly on whether Tru-ID should get a red light or green light. “Don’t we need enough s--- already?” complained Sheila Eletto of Manahawkin, the ﬁrst person questioned by this reporter. “You already have to come up with enough crap to bring in.” Eletto answered “absolutely not” when asked if the ID requirements should be more strict for national security. “You have to ﬁnd your marriage license; you have to go through everything to ﬁnd your birth certiﬁcate, Social Security card; and you don’t know how many points they’re worth, so you bring in everything.…” That day, she was on her way in with questions about changing an address, which is supposed to be done within a week. On the bright side, a license obtained under Tru-ID (costing $48) would be good for eight years, instead of the current four-year expiration. The second person asked for his opinion was a retirement-age man who agreed with the proposed federal Homeland Security Administration requirements that will demand better identiﬁcation for anyone to ﬂy on a domestic commercial airliner, or to enter a federal building except a post ofﬁce, starting in 2014 for those born after December 1964, or beginning 2017 for those born before December 1964. “There seems to be a reason for this for
security purposes. Anything that has to do with more security to keep us safe, I’m for it,” said Gus Majorino of Beach Haven West. “If I have to take a little more time or wait on line a little longer, as long as it’s for security’s sake, I’m for it a hundred percent.” Under the proposed Tru-ID, an applicant could no longer use an existing driver’s license as one form of ID. The address on the license could, however, be used for proof of residence. Besides two proofs of residence, the new law would require applicants to show their Social Security number using certain documents; and they would also have to prove they are legal residents of the United States. For the latter, they could use an unexpired passport, or a certiﬁed copy of a birth certiﬁcate with an ofﬁcial seal, a Green Card or certain other documents. As for proof of residence, acceptable papers would include a utility bill or credit card bill issued in the last 90 days; a bank statement no more than 60 days old; an MVC driver’s license renewal form, mail from a government agency, or a rental lease or property tax bill. (That’s a summary; for complete information see www.njmvc.gov.) So, remember, that’s what did not go into effect Monday, as the matter awaits argument in court, speciﬁcally, the Chancery Division of Superior Court in Mercer County. Still in effect is the 6-point system that was made law in 2003. Follow this link to see the list of what documents will add up currently: http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/Licenses/ident_ ver_posterpint.pdf. The ACLU’s case against the Tru-ID change was not outlined on the ACLU website at press time. What was there was a plethora of other protection of “freedom” issues, including matters of racial proﬁling, prison conditions, the right to protest, Internet privacy and more. For a SandPaper columnist’s take on his experience getting his license renewed last week when the stricter rules were in the air, see Jay Mann’s ﬁshing column in this issue. Y email@example.com

Green Minds Gather To Swap Info, Advice On Watershed Health How Best to Manage, Protect Resources? By VICTORIA LASSONDE first-of-its-kind conference at the Lighthouse Center for Natural Resource Education last week drew dozens of likeminded people, united in their common passion for protecting and preserving the Barnegat Bay watershed. It was the Barnegat Bay Watershed Environmental Commission Consortium – a somewhat clunky name for a relatively simple concept: Let’s get together and share ideas about how best to be environmental stewards. Pola Galie, Lighthouse Center operations manager and an Ocean Township Environmental Commission member, said the theme of the day was forming partnerships and sharing resources. She has learned increasingly over time that working relationships can be especially helpful in the joint grant application process; the ability to show the beneﬁts of collaboration is an essential part of getting things done in the nonproﬁt world, she said. “It becomes more important to say, ‘If you’ll fund me, we’ll work together on this or that project.’” Another goal of the consortium, as pointed out by American Littoral Society Policy Advocate Helen Henderson, was to empower towns
A New Ofﬁcer In the HCPD
aniel Petrone was sworn in last week as the newest patrolman with the Harvey Cedars Police Department. An opening was created on the nine-member force when Lt. Charles Sahlberg retired May 1 after more than 25 years of service. Police Chief Thomas Preiser said that Petrone, 24, is a resident of Lacey Township. He said that during the last four summers, he served as a seasonal ofﬁcer in Long Beach Township. “He worked with us brieﬂy last fall when Chuck (Sahlberg) had to go out on leave,” said Preiser. “Daniel has had experience working on the Island so he should ﬁt in ﬁne. He’s familiar with what ofﬁcers have to deal with during the summer when it gets so busy.” He said Petrone has an associate’s degree from Ocean County College in Toms River. “He went to the (Ocean County Police) academy to complete training as a seasonal off icer,” said Preiser. “He had to go back to the academy for more training so he could be a full-ﬂedged ofﬁcer.” —E.E.
by showing them they can make a real, measurable difference on a local level while keeping the big picture in sight. Planting a native garden is one way. Her program, Bayscape for Barnegat Bay, won the 2011 Governor’s Excellence Award in the “Healthy Ecosystems” category, for encouraging responsible landscaping practices via educational workshops and in-ground demonstrations, and by promoting partnerships among businesses, civic groups and residents. Native gardens play a crucial role in pollutant reduction, water conservation and habitat creation. Last year, to further promote the sale of native plants, the ALS opened a Bayscape for Barnegat Bay retail nursery at Hammetts Landscape and Garden Center in Forked River. Hammetts has a whole section of Bayscape native plants, all of which during the month of May are priced at 10 percent off. The Bayscape for Barnegat Bay program shows how gardening the right way can improve water quality in our streams, rivers and bay, Henderson explained. Planting native species, instead of lawn, or invasive or exotic plant species, eliminates the need for fertilizers and pesticides, reduces water use and creates habitats for species such as butterﬂies, hummingbirds and pollinators, she said. “The program can be implemented at any level: one back yard at a time, or an entire community garden,” Henderson said. “Our next project will be at Jakes Branch County Park beginning this spring and continuing into the fall. We’re hoping to ﬁ nd our ﬁ rst municipality interested in setting the bar for protecting the bay by implementing a Bayscape project soon.” Ocean Township Environmental Commission Chairman Don Lippin-
OUT OF SERVICE: Library system ofﬁcials are awaiting a construction inspection report before deciding when to reopen the branch, which has been closed since late Friday afternoon.
Waretown Branch of the OC Library Closed After Car Strikes Building
he Waretown Branch of the Ocean County Library has been indeﬁnitely closed due to structural damage caused by a car hitting the east corner of the Main Street building on Friday afternoon. Sgt. George Thompson of the Ocean Township Police Department said that Robert Silverman, 75, of Waretown, was attempting to park his vehicle at 2:30 p.m. when it accidentally lurched forward. Neither the driver nor anyone inside the library were hurt. Thompson said no charges were ﬁled against Silverman. Judy Macaluso, supervising librarian for branch services, said
the library, which is open until 5 p.m. Fridays, was closed shortly after the accident. “It will remain closed until further notice,” said Macaluso. “We have to make sure everything is structurally safe so that our employees and patrons can return to the building.” Macaluso said she is awaiting a report from the township construction inspection department. At 4,566 square feet and with circulation of approximately 11,000 volumes, the branch is one of the county system’s smallest buildings. Chris Barnes, library system
spokesman, said Waretown customers who have reserved materials would be able to pick them up at the Barnegat Branch. “They’re certainly welcome to go to any of our other 21 branches for all of their library services,” he said. “The Barnegat and Lacey branches are the closest ones. The Waretown branch employees will be reassigned to other branches.” Barnes said that people could call the main branch in Toms River at 732-349-6200, extension 5045, or log on to www.theoceancountylibrary.org for updates as to when the building will reopen. — E.E.
cott said a town-wide cleanup day is another way to make a noticeable difference. Last year in Waretown, cleanup participants ﬁlled 25 30-yard trash bins with the garbage and litter they collected. He said preserving waterfront should also be a priority for everyone in the watershed.
Invited to the consortium were the 37 municipalities that make up the Barnegat Bay watershed, meaning they border the bay. They span Ocean, Monmouth and Middlesex counties. Of concern to all of them are such topics as the impacts of runoff and nitrogen-rich fertilizers,
in particular, on the groundwater and the bay. On that note, Lippincott stressed the importance of implementing proper and effective groundwater recharge systems. The invited guests represented many different areas of expertise, from earth science to zoning codes
Barnegat Ordinances Could Change Look of Route 9
wo ordinances adopted at the May 7 Barnegat Township Committee meeting could eventually change the landscape of Route 9. One ordinance looks to designate the roadway from Barnegat Boulevard North to just before the Gunning River Road intersection as a town center. Another ordinance creates a planned highway commercial development overlay zone on Route 9 from Gunning River Road south to the Stafford Township border. Township Engineer John Hess said that while the designations have different names, they are “essentially the same thing.” “The area has a small piece of wetlands near Gunning River Road where
there could be no development,” said Hess. “Thus, the developmental zone is not contiguous, so the state requires us to have a different name for the area from Gunning River Road south.” Township Administrator David Breeden said the State Planning Commission gave approval for the designations in January. Before that, Barnegat had to implement changes in the master plan, which was accomplished last December. “But there was a review period by the DEP (state Department of Environmental Protection),” he said. “Once that got approved in the spring, then we could go ahead with the ordinances. This was a six-year process, with many planning board master plan
subcommittee meetings. For some towns, it has taken 10 years, so we feel a little fortunate.” Breeden said the designation would help the township attract more businesses and add to its tax ratable base. “The advantage to having this designation is that it would make us eligible for grants from the state Department of Transportation and other agencies for infrastructure improvements, which would help in attracting businesses,” he said. Breeden said that with the town center designation, commercial entities could develop 70 percent of their property. “Right now, they can only develop 30 percent,” said the administrator.
“So if you’re a business trying to relocate, you’re going to want to go to someplace where you can use 70 percent of the property instead of 30 percent. This will make us much more competitive in drawing businesses. Obviously, we’re not in the position to draw major chains like they’ve done in Lacey Township, so we have to concentrate on smaller businesses.” Committeeman Jeff Melchiondo said the historic district near the Route 9-West Bay Avenue intersection would be untouched. “There are numerous historical sites in that area that will be preserved,” he said. — Eric Englund firstname.lastname@example.org
his or her perspective on how to succeed in environmental projects. As their discussion revealed, connectedness is best achieved by cultivating teamwork through expertise and understanding. “Our priorities are simple,” Spodofora said. “Protect the bay.” A few of the main ideas Spodofora touched upon were: data gathering; educating the public and raising awareness, through town-wide celebrations such as Arbor Day and the Groundwater Guardian designation; community involvement and networking (“I can’t stress enough the importance of networking”); unifying towns, their environmental commissions and advocacy groups; spreading the message that “environmental problems don’t recognize boundaries on a map”; managing resources; setting standards, in the form of ordinances, that reﬂect a long-range plan for environmental health. One simple, cost-saving measure he suggested was to borrow the verbiage from a neighboring town’s ordinance. In O’Donnell’s experience, towns that decide to unify voluntarily, rather than by mandate, seem to be more effective.
Constantino said one priority should be cleaning up and enhancing existing habitats. Recognizing that changes in resources can present challenges and a sour political atmosphere can impact/impede progress, his advice was to choose projects strategically, realistically – to ensure the environmental commission walks away with a win. One way to do that is by opening the lines of communication with leaders, build partnerships. But relationships and partnerships at the town level sometimes require a delicate touch, Wenzel pointed out. Miller, on behalf of ANJEC, suggested partnering with nonproﬁt organizations. She also said environmental commissions should leverage a town’s resources – public works, engineers, planners – to accomplish objectives. Eagle Scout Joe DeRado said the key to engaging partners is to assemble a knowledge base. Bringing good background builds credibility, Constantino agreed. When it comes to maintaining good results after a project is ﬁ nished, Spodofora said, signage helps to bring ongoing recognition to an accomplishment and remind the public of the
town’s accomplishments. Wenzel added that establishing a sense of ownership and pride for those who helped make it happen can inspire and empower employees to take part and care about the outcome, so they will want to maintain the results. Auermuller summarized: Be realistic, organized, open and science-based, and work from the ground up. Tap into ANJEC as a resource for information and guidance. Recognize partners and express thanks for their efforts. While environmental commissions may be advisory in nature, they can have plenty of inﬂuence, Spodofora said. Get involved in the master plan; get ideas in writing; create something that is lasting. DeRado agreed: The ﬁrst step toward making a difference is making noise. Be heard, he urged. Publish newsletters; speak at meetings; rally the support of others who trust and believe in the same mission. Also, Wenzel offered, never underestimate the power of a paper trail. Above all, passion drives prog ress, O’Donnell said. Y email@example.com

to public works to politics. The reason for the information-sharing session was to ﬁll in communication gaps that can sometimes open up between the different groups, despite their shared goals, Galie acknowledged. It happens commonly enough that Galie felt it was necessary to bring all the groups together. “Our ‘habitat’ wasn’t connected,” she quipped. Panel of ‘Green’ Experts Shares Insights and Tips A panel discussion, called “Taking a Project from A-Z,” led by Watershed Coordinator Lisa Auermuller from the Jacques Cousteau Coastal Center, included: Britta Wenzel, executive director of Save Barnegat Bay and a former elected ofﬁcial; Tony O’Donnell, an economist with Sustainable Jersey; Chris Constantino, chair of the Point Pleasant Borough Environmental Commission; Kerry Miller, assistant director of the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions; 16-yearold Eagle Scout Joe DeRado; and Stafford Township Mayor John Spodofora, a longtime environmental champion.

Barnegat Hero’s Legacy Lives As Hundreds Gather at Vigil I n the light of hundreds of candles last Wednesday evening shone not just a sparkling sea of luminosity, but also the collective humanity of Barnegat Township and the faith in its hero Kyle McGetrick. Multitudes gathered outside the Cecil S. Collins Elementary School and Brackman Middle School attended by Kyle, who battled leukemia for seven of the 12 years of his life, which ended May 1. Many in the crowd considered themselves witnesses to a miracle after Kyle survived well beyond the point his doctors expected him to, which would have been around last Christmas. Kyle had survived three relapses, two preceding a bone marrow transplant last year and one following it. Doctors sent him home from the hospital in December, not expecting him to make it to see the New Year. On that Yule, Kyle was made honorary mayor of Barnegat Township for the day, for his “extreme amount of courage and conviction,” as was read in a proclamation that
went on to immortalize the calendar date as Honorary Mayor Kyle McGetrick Day. Years earlier Kyle was made an honorary member of Barnegat Volunteer Fire Co. #1, of which his father, Gene, is a member, and in which he would have found his own membership had he survived, friends said Wednesday. The company’s newest truck – Kyle’s favorite – sat in the parking lot at the vigil on Wednesday with decals spread across the windshield reading “Kyle’s Ride.” Preceding last Christmas, a “Convoy for Kyle” of more than 100 ﬁre trucks from throughout the state made its way past Kyle’s home on Village Drive in his honor. In January, hundreds of motorcyclists headed down from Asbury Park for a “Ride for Kyle.” Yard sales, dinners and even Zumba fundraisers sprang up to raise money for Courage For Kyle, a fund originally meant to help with his treatments. Near the end of his life, Kyle asked it be changed to Courage From Kyle, to continue as
an organization for other Barnegat residents in need of treatments and possibly to include a scholarship through the Barnegat schools. A sign reading just that – “Courage From Kyle” – was held by several of his classmates at the vigil on Wednesday who called him kindhearted, a great friend and role model, and credited him with bringing the town together as a family. “When I had a black eye, he made me a card. He was a great person,” said friend and classmate Victoria Wallace. “That’s what the angels are about,” she said, describing the sign she had made, “him being a great soul.” Jillian Grobelny, 20, of Barnegat organized the vigil and spoke for the many in attendance who were moved by Kyle’s story despite never having met him. “I want people to remember that he was the happiest kid that this town has ever seen,” said Grobelny. “Even when he was going through his hardest times, he had a smile on his face and never stopped fighting, and I think it’s

LIGHT OF LOVE: People of all ages lined the sides of Barnegat Avenue outside the Collins School on Wednesday night in a candlelight vigil for Kyle McGetrick, who touched the lives of many during his seven-year battle. important for kids to realize that, if you think you’re not going to make it through, to really ﬁght for every day because miracles can happen.” “Kyle had a smile that would light up the world,” said Nicole Richard, a family friend and member of the fire company’s ladies auxiliary. “He was an amazing kid, he really was. They only gave him ﬁve years; he fought for seven. He just kept getting infections. Every time he got treatments, it kept coming back. It kept mutating.” Richard described the “Convoy for Kyle” ﬁre truck procession as being the most well attended event she had ever seen by any ﬁre company. “They saw the brotherhood and came together because of his spirit. Kyle had a contagious spirit.”
Speakers at the vigil included Kyle’s sister Maria and her close friend Jamie Lynch, both 16, of Barnegat. Lynch had helped create Courage for Kyle. “I was amazed. It was really touching to see how many people actually care,” remarked Lynch, who credited the outpouring of support partially to Kyle’s active life in the community despite battling cancer. That included participating in Boy Scouts, playing soccer and basketball, and being a drummer in the school band. Upon night falling, the crowd disseminated along both sides of Barnegat Avenue outside the school with candles in hand while Barnegat police directed trafﬁc. Continued on Page 46
OCC Receives Health Information Technology Grant Extension
cean County College recently received a one-year extension to its Health Information Technology grant in the amount of $181,351. The grant award, which funds training for professionals in the IT and healthcare ﬁelds, now totals $611,821. The HIT for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 established a plan for advancing the appropriate use of health information technology to improve quality of care for citizens. As part of this program, OCC initially received a two-year grant to augment the skill sets of previously trained individuals to ﬁll employment gaps in a rapidly growing profession. According to Deborah Robinson, director of continuing and professional education and grants at OCC, “Electronic health records skills are required for new, entry-level healthcare jobs. Individuals who were trained years ago and have been working in the ﬁeld now need to upgrade
their skills. Ocean County College is providing the education that working professionals in IT and healthcare need in order to remain competitive in today’s workforce.” During years one and two, the grant enabled OCC’s Department of Continuing and Professional Education to develop and implement a six-month, non-credit health information technology training certiﬁcate program. “At the end of year two, 173 students were enrolled in the program, far exceeding our original goal of 94,” said Robinson. “Of the 173 enrollees, 129, or 75 percent, have graduated. The additional funding for year three, in the amount of $181,351, will enable Ocean County College to offer scholarships to 95 new students. The goal for this program is to be selfsustaining at Ocean County College and continue without grant funding after this third year.” In year three, students who previ-
ously completed OCC’s certificate program and then passed the national Certiﬁed Electronic Health Records Specialist exam – as well as other students, such as nurses, who have the required requisites – can take advantage of the new Health Information Management Certiﬁcate by completing courses in healthcare information, management, ethics and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). As Kathy Caro, OCC administrator of nursing and allied health, explained, expanding the college’s program will help meet the job skill needs as more emphasis is placed on the supervisory and management aspects of the job. “Students in year three will learn how to manipulate and use the data captured in the electronic health record. There will also be emphasis on the legal aspects of the health record, including health information and HIPPA.” Basic help regarding job searches,
interview techniques and resume development are provided to students who successfully complete the program. As Caro pointed out, OCC has established partnerships with the three major hospitals in Ocean County: Community Medical Center, Ocean Medical Center and Southern Ocean Medical Center. “We’ve also established good working relationships with numerous medical practitioners in the county who accept our students for externships and job shadowing experiences, in addition to offering many of our students jobs after successfully completing the program,” Caro added. To be eligible for the HIT program, prospective students must already have a career or previous education and training in information technology or healthcare. Upon application, a student’s entire professional and educational background is assessed in order to develop a program that ﬁts into his or her schedule.
The HIT program includes intensive non-degree training courses that can be completed in six months or less, accommodates each trainee’s skill gaps and is ﬂexibly designed to allow each trainee to enroll in just those courses needed to attain the desired level of competency. Instruction in IT or healthcare areas is provided, if necessary, and the program can be completed in the classroom or online. Tuition reimbursement is available for those who qualify. Both health care and information technology technicians and professionals are encouraged to apply to the HIT program. For additional information or to apply, contact project coordinator John Knight in the OCC Department of Continuing and Professional Education, Healthcare Information Technology Grant Ofﬁce, at 732-2550511, or visit ocean.edu/HIT. – Juliet Kaszas-Hoch firstname.lastname@example.org

Girl Scouts, Homeless Paws Join For Second Chance Adoption Day By VICTORIA LASSONDE t was a lively atmosphere on the grassy clearing at Manahawkin Lake Park last Sunday, with music blaring and plenty of fun to be had for attendees on two legs and those with four, during the Second Chance Pet Adoption event organized by Girl Scout Troop 421. Vendors and rescue groups manned tented booths, while event organizer and Scout Leader Diane Modri ran in every different direction with a clipboard. “I’m in my element,” she said. Modri’s troop has 10 cadets, including her daughter Cali. Planning for the event had started in September and, like so many successful community events, came together with the coordinated efforts of dedicated people – in particular, Modri’s assistant, Chris Grayson. One troop mom had stayed up all during the previous night, baking homemade dog biscuits from oil, chicken broth, cornmeal and whole wheat flour. Organizers are already looking forward to repeating the event next year. Second Chance Adoption Day grew out of the troop’s award-winning Bronze Project last year, for which they fostered dogs from Homeless Paws, a nonprofit pet adoption agency based in Manahawkin. Each girl sponsored, named and formed a relationship with a dog, visiting at the dogs' temporary foster homes regularly to walk, play and tend to other responsibilities. The girls kept journals about their experiences, logging entries after each visit. Each girl-dog relationship was a journey
that began the day they met and continued until the dog was adopted. The length of time varied from weeks, months or even a year. But the bond they developed was instantaneous. The Bronze Project inspired the girls to want to do more to help homeless pets, Modri explained, so they developed the idea for Second Chance Adoption Day. They also made blankets and toys for the critters. In all, 11 rescue groups and seven other vendors participated. One vendor was raising awareness of pet CPR. Steve Ross was an emergency responder for 30 years and taught human CPR for a long time before turning his attention, about seven years ago, to the importance of life-saving measures for animals. His company, First Aid and CPR based in Englishtown, provides on-site training in CPR, bleeding control and other emergency care. He uses a realistic mannequin dog named “CasPeR” to demonstrate how to check for breathing and a pulse. For Troop 421, the girls’ work with Homeless Paws earned them a Leadership in Action Award. For Modri, the satisfaction lies in getting the rescues exposure and hopefully encouraging people to adopt from rescues instead of kill shelters. Homeless Paws is an all-volunteer organization for med in 2002. Without a brick-and-mortar facility, the organization operates exclusively out of foster homes and by appointment. “Our mission is to help prevent and relieve the suffering and neglect of companion Continued on Page 46

â€˜Kids Donâ€™t Float,â€™ Vests Do State Police Bring Loaner Life Jackets to Barnegat Light HEADS UP: KDF stands for Kids Donâ€™t Float, a state program that provides life jackets for families to borrow when taking their children out boating. On May 5, Barnegat Light became the ďŹ rst location on Long Beach Island to have the jackets. (Above) New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau Troopers Brian Weiner and Adam Graczyk pose with Dockmaster Ed Kenny after installing the box at the public boat ramp on West 10th Street. The state supplies the life preservers; the State Police run the program in conjunction with municipalities and nonproďŹ t organizations. â€˜Boaters launching their boat who have children on board without a life preserver can borrow life preservers while out on the water for safety and then can return them to the dispensary when they come back in. The program is run completely on the honor system in the hopes that the preservers are returned at the end of the day,â€™ said Borough Councilman Scott Sharpless. The life jackets are in three sizes â€“ youth, child and infant. The law requires children younger than 13 to wear a life vest at all times while on the water.

iting it as a major accomplishment in view of the economic climate, Barnegat Township has maintained its A-1 bond credit rating from Moodyâ€™s Investment. According to Township Administrator David Breeden, A-1 is the fifth highest of more than 20 ratings listed by the investment firm. The highest is Aaa, while the lowest is C. He said that with an A-1 rating, Moodyâ€™s has determined that Barnegat has shown a strong capacity to meet its financial commitments, but can be susceptible to adverse effects of changes in economic conditions. â€œThe big negative we had was tax appeals,â€? said Breeden at the May 5 township committee meeting. â€œMost towns in the county and other areas of the state have gotten hit hard.â€?

tafford Township has received a municipal bond rating of AA-, thus putting the town â€œin as good a financial position as we can possibly be,â€? Business Administrator James Moran announced at the council meeting of May 2. A municipal bond is a standard of measure for a municipalityâ€™s creditworthiness, which of course determines the interest rates it pays on municipal bonds, which are loans. Moran said the rating is especially impressive â€œin a time when many towns are getting downgraded.â€? A positive rating means the town is sitting pretty as it heads into its May bond sale. â€”V.L.
more than 3,000 tax appeals were filed against the municipality, which he said cost the township a total of $2.1 million. The administrator said Moodyâ€™s review involved analyzing Barnegatâ€™s economy, finances, development and debt. â€œOur rating is an indication that the township is following solid financial practices,â€? said Breeden. â€œThere were several factors that were in our favor: Our operating expenses have gone down the last two years, and we have reduced our workforce and improved our shared-services agreements.â€? Mayor Al Cirulli said the rating helps the town obtain lower interest rates and reduce the cost of debt. â€œIf we were to bond a million dollars, our interest rate would be around 3 percent, but it would be 6 percent if we had a lower rating,â€? he said. During the public portion of the meeting, resident Angelo Mureo suggested that the township could save more money by eliminating the assessorâ€™s office. When asked how much that would save, Breeden said it would be close to $300,000. Mureo filed a tax appeal two months ago, and said his questions to the assessor are usually referred to the Ocean County Board of Taxation. â€œIf they are not doing anything to assist the residents, why are we keeping them?â€? he asked. However, Cirulli said the assessorâ€™s position is required by state law. â€œWe might be able do it through a sharedservices program,â€? he said. â€œBut we canâ€™t get rid of the local office and have the county take over.â€? â€”E.E.

MODEL CITIZEN: Kimberly Pepenella won prestigious Richardson Award from Soroptimists.
New Jersey Students in Action Bestow Honors on Pepenella
he honors keep on rolling in for Barnegat High School sophomore Kimberly Pepenellaâ€™s efforts in promoting a ministry that provides relief for families who canâ€™t afford to feed their pets. Last month, she was the only individual recipient in Ocean County to receive the South Jersey Youth Service Award for Citizenship, which was sponsored by Students in Action of New Jersey. The program is part of the Governorâ€™s Jefferson Awards for Public Service. Karen Hatcher, director of Students in Action, said Pepenella was presented with her award May 5 at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. An outreach program from St. Maryâ€™s Roman Catholic Parish of Barnegat and Manahawkin, the St. Bernard ministry for pets opened last June. But as it got closer to the holidays, Pepenella coordinated an awareness campaign and set up various collection boxes in Barnegat and Stafford townships. As a result, more than 1,000 pounds of pet food were collected for the drive, which ended on Christmas Eve. â€œI hated the thought of people having to give up their pets because of financial problems,â€? the youngster said. â€œItâ€™s a situation that got critical as we got close to the holiday season, so Iâ€™m thankful so many people responded. Iâ€™m looking to do it again for the holidays.â€?
She said donations are still being accepted at the pantry, located in the basement of Msgr. Reinbold Hall at the rectory complex in Barnegat. â€œI think what Kim did was unique and creative,â€? said Hatcher. â€œA lot of people have been going through hard times, and they did not want to have to get rid of their pets. She took a program that had started and really made people aware of it, and it was very successful.â€? Pepenellaâ€™s efforts also won her the annual Violet Richardson award from the Soroptimists International Long Beach Island Chapter. The award is annually given to a young woman between the ages of 14 and 17 who exhibits a â€œvolunteer spirit, displays compassion and is active in her community.â€? Later this month, Pepenella will receive her Gold Award, the highest honor that can be given to a Girl Scout. Awards presented by Students in Action to Ocean County groups for environmental activities included the â€œGet Muggedâ€? program based in Waretown with members Jenna Thompson, Alexandra Jones-Twaddell and Sean Nauta, and the Pinelands Eco Scienteers from Manchester Township, comprised of Samantha Barton, Michael Cofone, Mikaeal Crowley, Jon Kunbricki, Christopher Naples, Anthony Ricci and Bridget Zarych. â€” Eric Englund email@example.com
Barnegat Township Receives $37,000 Clean Communities Grant From the DEP
arnegat Township recently received a $37,000 New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Clean Communities Grant, which officials said could be used for various programs. Township Administrator David Breeden said some of the funds could be used for the annual spring cleanup at the townshipâ€™s public dock and bathing beach, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9. â€œWeâ€™re hoping to get a good group of volunteers,â€? said Breeden. â€œOver the winter, a lot of debris and junk can get washed up. We had a mild winter, so it might not be as bad this time. But we have to get these areas cleaned up as we get close to the summer season.â€? The administrator said grant money could also be utilized in purchasing cleanup equipment, buying trash and recycling receptacles, graffiti removal, cleanup of storm water systems and public information programs. â€œWe might need to use it to repair our street sweeper,â€? said Breeden. â€œThis grant covers a broad range of areas that are needed to help keep the town clean.â€? Township Committeeman Jeff Melchiondo indicated the township will need to clean up

Barnegat Juvenile Charged With Setting Brush Fire
Barnegat Township juvenile has been charged with third-degree arson in connection with a brush fire that was allegedly set last month in a wooded area behind Spar Court in the Settlerâ€™s Landing development. Police Lt. Keith Germain said the fire broke out in a 1,000-square-foot area at 4:30 p.m. April 19. He said the Barnegat Volunteer Fire Co. quickly extinguished the fire, which did not damage any nearby homes. Germain said the 15-year-old suspect was arrested at his home by Det. Maryann Cirulli on May 1. â€œThe identity of the suspect was developed through interviews with witnesses,â€? said Germain. â€œBased on these interviews, it was believed that the fire was intentionally set.â€? He said the suspectâ€™s case is pending in the Ocean County Juvenile Court system. â€”E.E.

Mining Little Egg’s Civil War Legacy Leads to Surprises Southern Sympathizers Fought for North By PAT JOHNSON ocal historian and retired history teacher Pete Stemmer loves history but is not what you might call a Civil War buff. He began looking for Civil War local connections because the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Years started in 2011, and he was asked to do a program by Tuckerton Historical Society member and museum curator Barbara Bolton. “I didn’t know anything about it, but said I would do it. It was a challenge, so I did my research. That’s one of the things about having a history background: You love to do research. Some people play golf; I love to read old newspapers. It’s not work, it’s fun.” Stemmer presented the results of his inquiries into local Civil War records during the Tuckerton Library’s annual open house April 26. First he gave some Civil War facts and trivia. During the years of the Civil War (1861-65), three million soldiers fought, 2.1 million for the Union and 900,000 for the Confederacy. Of that, 300 were women disguised as men, 2,000 were younger than 14, 300 were younger than 13, and 200,000 were below the age of 16. Of the 3,530 Native Americans fighting in the war, 1,018 were killed, a disproportionate number. During the war, 620,000 people died; that’s 2 percent of the population at the time. Disease killed twice as many men as those who died in battle or from their wounds. There were 6,000 battles or skirmishes. “Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest had 30 horses shot under him, and he killed 31 men in handto-hand combat,” said Stemmer. “At the end of the war, he said he came out ‘a horse ahead.’ “Many people have heard of Andersonville, the Confederate prison in southwest Georgia that had 33,000 prisoners in 1864, making it the fifth largest city in the Confederacy,” said Stemmer. “But how many had heard of the Union prisoner of war camp just off New Jersey? ” he asked. “Pea Patch Island in the Delaware (River) was the federal prisoner of war camp. In 1863 it housed 11,000 prisoners, and by the end of the war there were 33,000. Over 2,500 died from disease.” Other bits of trivia: During the first battle of Bull Run, the first battle of the war, it’s estimated between 8,000 and 10,000 bullets were fi red. The first civilian killed in the war was a freed black man at Harpers Ferry, during the uprising led by abolitionist John Brown. The Medal of Honor was created in 1861 for Union heroes. The Union spent $2.5 million per day during the war; by 1879 it’s figured the war had cost the Union $6,190,000,000, and the Confederacy had spent about a third of that. Stemmer snagged his audience
by throwing out a trick question: “Was southern New Jersey below the Mason-Dixon Line?” The Mason-Dixon Line was the line drawn in the sand between the states – showing which were Southern sympathizers wanting secession, and which were loyal to the Union, he said. Technically the line encompasses only Maryland and Delaware, but if it were extended straight across along longitudinal lines, it would include Little Egg Harbor and south. The state’s tenuous border position between the North and South may be one reason why before the war, New Jersey was more in sympathy with the Southern states. Stemmer found an editorial in the Newark Journal that supported secession. “New Jersey was the last northern state to abolish slavery,” he noted. And there were plenty of slaves in New Jersey: Stemmer found that The “Great” John Mathis who settled Bass River Township in 1716 had slaves on his plantation located on the mouth of the Bass River. The plantation wasn’t planted in cotton, but had cattle and timber. Timber was a big commodity; it was shipped down the river by schooner to the West Indies, where molasses wa s m a d e i nt o rum and shipped to points north and south. In 1830, two thirds of those enslaved in the northern states were enslaved in New Jersey. Twice, Abe Lincoln failed to get New Jersey’s vote for election. New Jersey went for presidential candidates Stephan Douglas in 1860 and Gary McClellan in 1864. “Another reason for sympathies with the South was monetary; in northern New Jersey, there were factories making goods that were sent to southern markets.” Despite these sympathies with the South, when war broke out, New Jersey men fought bravely for the Union, said Stemmer. “The men of New Jersey were particularly patriotic,” he said. “Strange that they were not in favor of entering into war, but once it was declared, the men rallied, and there was no trouble filling the ranks. There was a lot of patriotism and enthusiasm. “Men signed up because it was a lark; everyone thought the war would be over within a few days. Most were signed up for three-month tours. No one expected the war to linger over years,” Stemmer added. At the time of the Civil War, Bass River Township was part of Little Egg Harbor Township, and both were part of Burlington County. Little Egg wasn’t part of Ocean County until 1891. So when the war came, the men were

It was quite a trip for the local men. (Interesting fact: Burlington County is the only county in New Jersey that straddles the state east to west.) In May 1861, men from Little Egg Harbor Township reported to the mustering point in Beverly and were organized into two regiments, the 10th and the 23rd. But not all New Jersey men fought in New Jersey regiments. Recruitment was different then; these were privately mustered regi-
Virginia and sent to Pottsville, Pa., to quell a coal miners’ riot. In April of 1864, the 10th was assigned to the Army of the Potomac and joined the First Jersey brigade under Col. Henry Ogden Ryerson. The brigade fought in the Battle of the Wilderness, where Ryerson was wounded, taken prisoner and died in a hospital. The 10th also dug trenches for the siege of Petersburg, Va., and went on to Appomattox to guard supply wagons. The soldiers were mustered out on June 22, 1865, in Virginia and had to find their way home. The 23rd also mustered out of camp in Beverly and was equally ill equipped for battle. Stemmer read from a letter from a Sgt. Forester Taylor, “Our Colonel Cox is drunk the greater part of the time. We have not been sufficiently drilled and we have been on the point of mutiny on more than one occasion.” Cox was allowed to resign, and Col. Henry Ogden Ryerson replaced him. Ryerson was a lawyer from North Jersey. “Their commander was a gentleman of wealth, and when he found his troops were Jersey farm boys, he called them a group of Yahoos. Yahoo was another derogatory name for a country bumpkin,” said Stemmer. “Like all good Pineys, they took something that was meant to be derogatory and turned it into a symbol of pride. They even put it on their flag: ‘The New Jersey Yahoos.’” The Yahoos’ first battle was the Battle of Fredericksburg, Va., pitting Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee versus Union Gen. Maj. Ambrose E. Burnside. “The Union did badly. They had significantly more troops but suffered double the casualties,” said Stemmer. Two brothers from Little Egg Harbor, Rueben and William Gaskill, fought in Fredericksburg, where Rueben was killed by artillery fire. William survived the war and later became the keeper of Bond’s Lifesaving Station on Long Beach Island. Thanks to their living ancestor Pat Mathis, the Tuckerton Historical Society has copies of two Civil War
The state’s tenuous border position between the North and South may be one reason why before the war, New Jersey was more in sympathy with the Southern states. ments. “It would be like me, Pete Stemmer, saying, ‘Come join my regiment and fight with me.’” Many fought in Pennsylvania or New York regiments. All colored troops were mustered in Philadelphia and were segregated to fight under the general flag of the United States. Stemmer urged those who might be searching for their ancestors’ Civil War records to also check New York and Pennsylvania records. But most of the 135 local men who mustered in Beverly were divided into two regiments. Those who signed up for three months were in the 10th. That regiment, mustered in May of 1861, was privately recruited by William Bryan of Beverly, and it was known as the “Olden Legion,” after Gov. Charles Olden. “The 10th was poorly equipped and poorly trained, but because so many signed up, they were the fi rst to be sent to Washington, D.C.,” said Stemmer. “The legion left for Washington in December 1861 and fell almost immediately into disrepute owing to defective organization and the absence of proper discipline, according to Secretary of War Simon Cameron. “They were so poorly organized that the cavalry unit never received its horses,” he said. The 10th Regiment was sent to Virginia, where it fought in the Carrsville skirmish and lost three men there. Then it was pulled out of
letters concerning Reuben. One was a letter he wrote home to a friend asking about girlfriends and rabbit hunting. The second is the letter from his commanding officer describing his death. The Yahoos wintered at White Oak Church, Va., and were involved in the Battle of Salem Church, part of the Chancellorsville campaign. Here, 23 men were killed, 57 wounded, and 31 were missing, presumed dead. A monument was erected there dedicated to the New Jersey men who died. They were mustered out on June 27, 1863. Then, as today, a disproportionate number of poor people fought in the war, noted Stemmer. For some it was a way to earn cash. As the war dragged on, governments paid bounties to entice men to enlist – not just the federal government, but the state and municipal governments as well. In old newspapers, Stemmer found a notice of a special town fathers’ meeting held in the house of Lloyd Jones in Tuckerton for the purpose of creating municipal bonds to be able to borrow money to pay bounties. It was $20 a man in September 1862, but by December 1863, the price had gone up to $100. Between federal, state and municipal bounties, a man could make as much as $500 in bounty money from all three governments; that was about a year’s wages at the time, said Stemmer. Of course, this led to “bounty jumping.” Men would sign up in one place, take the bounty, then desert and sign up in another town. “The practice was so common that a popular song of the day was called ‘The Bounty Jumper’s Lament,’” said Stemmer. “A John O’Connor bounty jumped 32 times until he was caught and sent to prison for four years. Governments move slowly, but finally they figured out that instead of paying the bounty all at once, they would pay it out over time so (soldiers) received a portion in their regular pay, and that ended bounty jumping." Stemmer advised those doing research on their family trees to check pension records for the names of Civil War veterans and also to check the veterans census of 1890 on sites such as Ancestry.com.

DOING GOD’S WORK: He’s been on the world’s leading concert stages, but David Paul now wants to offer his talents to King of Kings Community Church.
David Paul Among Elite Fingerstyle Players
of playing the instrument by picking the strings directly with fingertips, fingernails or with picks attached to fingers. And there are various styles even within the finger-style method. “My style was influenced by Chet Atkins,” said Paul, referring to the legendary guitarist who won 14 Grammy and nine Country Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year awards among numerous other honors. Amy Roberts, Paul’s publicist from Snowbird Records, said he is “one of the top five finger-style guitarists in the world today and has been often referred to as the ‘maestro of the guitar.’” She said he first learned to play at age 7 and performed his first recital a year later. At age 10, he was a guest soloist with the Garden State Orchestra. Roberts said a New York Times review called him “the most creative finger-style guitarist on the planet.” Guitar Player magazine said Paul was the “closest living guitarist in the sound, feel and approach to Chet Atkins.” Roberts said Atkins once said of him, “David Paul would become one of the best guitarists in America and has the same sense of approaching a song as I in sound and arrangements.” He has recorded seven CDs, with the most recent being There’s Only One, David Paul. In addition, Heritage Guitars, formerly Gibson Guitars, has made a model called the “David Paul Signature Guitar.” Paul said he is currently recording a new CD featuring inspirational music. The last time he performed in the area was during the summer of 2008, when he played a free outdoor concert at the Long Beach Island Branch of the Ocean County Library. His next concert looks to be with the church focusing on its ministry to the homeless. “I’m looking to soon announce a concert or series of concerts,” said Paul. “God has become a powerful part of my life, so I want to go out and use the talents God has given me. I want to remember one of Chet Atkins’s famous sayings, ‘It is not nice to be important, but it is important to be nice.” — Eric Englund firstname.lastname@example.org
o the average music listener, David Paul may not be a very familiar name. But in the genre of finger-style guitar playing, he is truly one of the biggest stars. Earlier this year, Paul moved to Tuckerton with the idea of making himself available for individual guitar lessons. But now his guitar playing has taken on totally new focus, born of what he said were “unspeakable personal losses.” In late 2010, he lost his father, David Paul Sr., to an illness and just two months later, his wife, Exel, was killed in an automobile accident along with their unborn child. Part of his reason for moving to Tuckerton was to be closer to his mother, Eleanor Paul, who resides in an assisted living facility. “At that time, I was totally devastated,” said the 45-year-old musician. “Guitar playing had been my life, and now I didn’t even see myself as being a guitar player anymore. I didn’t know what I was going to do. I was just totally lost.” Then one day he showed up for a Sunday morning service at King of Kings Community Church in Manahawkin. He said his life has not been the same since and now he plans on using his extraordinary talents to aid the church’s ministry. “When I walked through the door at King of Kings, people could sense how lost I was, and how I was feeling,” he said. “They embraced me and reached out to me and prayed with me. Now I would like to reach out to people who are in need.” He also bonded with Kevin Geoghegan, the church’s music director and worship coordinator. “To be honest, I was really blown away by his musicianship,” said Paul “He is an outstanding guitar player and singer.” Geoghegan, who is also a Tuckerton resident, said working with Paul “has been a very special experience.” “I feel honored to have him with us,” he said. “He’s performed on major concert stages, and we’re all very fortunate that he wants to use his talents to help other people who are in need.” Paul said finger-style guitar is the technique

DRUMMER BOY: Manahawkin native Zach Jones springs from a musical and theatrical family. He now lives in Brooklyn.
From 72 to the Great White Way
Zach Jones Makes Broadway Debut In ‘Two Guvnors’ By J.D. WATSON h, you would be perfect!” “ If you hang around show business types long enough, you’ll be bound to hear that a few times. And whether the statement – or exclamation, usually – is heartfelt or the sort of damning false praise that really means “I’d be much better in the role, but you should try for it, too” is really no matter; hear it enough and it sort of loses its meaning. But once in a very great while the statement proves to be prophetic. Such was the case with Zach Jones. Jones, originally from Manahawkin but who now lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, recalled talking with a friend who had just returned from an audition for a new show coming to Broadway after a successful run in London’s West End. “I had a friend who was auditioning for the percussion chair,” Jones said recently in a telephone interview, “and he said to me, ‘You gotta do this; you’d be perfect.’” After auditioning, Jones was offered a job, and he recently made his Broadway debut playing drums in the comedy “One Man, Two Guvnors.” Now, a few detours are necessary to understand just how accurate his friend’s statement was. Jones, 24, has been around music and the theater virtually all his life. His father, Dave, is a long-time musician known to many on Long Beach Island as well as a luthier and eponymous proprietor of Dave Jones Guitar Repair in Manahawkin. Music was always a part of the family, which includes his mother, Michelle, and sister, Natalie. Jones, a professional musician since graduating from Southern Regional High School in 2005, has been playing music for years. “I started playing drums when I was 9 years old,” he explained, “and I’ve been singing for just as long. Along the way, I’ve learned to play guitar. Over the years, I’ve picked up some basic keyboard skills, as well.”
In addition to providing music lessons to private students, Jones has been involved with a number of independent music projects that allowed him to relocate to Brooklyn in 2010. In addition to his musical experience, Jones said he also had long experience doing theater in Southern Ocean County. “I did shows with Our Gang (Players), back when they were at the Surflight Theatre. From that, I did the Surflight summer program in 1995 and 1996.” But how does a British comedy come to employ a drummer form New Jersey? Wait, it gets better. “One Man, Two Guvnors,” adapted by Richard Bean, is based on Carlo Goldini’s 1743 “Servant of Two Masters” and tells the story of an outof-work musician who agrees to work for a local gangster. Seeing how easy the work is, he then agrees to work for a rival. Madcap hijinks ensue. The play, however, is told in the commedia dell’arte style, popular in the 16th through 18th centuries, in which largely improvised scenes are separated by musical interludes. It is those musical interludes that feature Jones, but only occasionally. The music for the show is provided by the Craze, a fictional skiffle band. Skiffle, originally popular in the United States in the early 20th century, later became a minor popular music craze – hence, the band’s name – in England during the 1950s and gave hope to the musical aspirations of a generation of British musicians, including a little combo called the Quarrymen. That band later changed its name to the Beatles. The play, set in 1953 in the English seaside resort of Brighton, features music by Grant Olding, who also appeared as the lead singer in the original National Theater production in London. Olding described what initially made Jones noticeable at the audition. “He’s got the sunniest disposition,” Olding said on the telephone from
Cedar Bridge Tavern Now County Project Seeks Rightful Spot On Historic Registers
he late Rudolph Koenig, the historic Cedar Bridge Tavern’s reclusive and mysterious owner-occupant of more than 50 years, has left his estate in the hands of the county and preservationists whose efforts to preserve the site are under way, with a long-range plan still in development. The Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation took ownership of the property upon Koenig’s passing back in January, in accordance with an agreement struck in 2007. The goal is to restore the building and to get it added to both the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. The Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders will decide the tavern’s ultimate use. The historic signif icance of the 1740s tavern, located on a wooded dirt road in Barnegat, is well documented as the site of the final land engagement of the American
Revolution. When Koenig bought it in 1959, it sat in disrepair on a 200acre parcel. He was 34 years old at the time; the price was $12,000, and the floors were crumbling. He fixed it up and made it livable, staying true to its original integrity. In the ’70s he sold the lion’s share (195 acres) to the New Jersey Conservation Foundation. His living there all those years, caring for the building and surrounding property, kept it in good overall condition and protected from vandals and arsonists. So far, according to Tim Hart,
administrator of the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission and Stafford Township historian, when interviewed earlier, “the county has hauled out six Dumpsters, one dump truck, (and donated) one truck to Habitat (for Humanity) and a car to the old and new shop.” Bids will be opened Tuesday for a historic preservation architect/ specialist, who will conduct the process of nominating the site to the state and national registers and draft a preservation plan to explore the options. The selection will be made within the following week. —V.L.
England. “He comes into the room and just lights it up. He makes everyone happy. His energy is fantastic.” When Jones auditioned, he auditioned for the lead singer. When the producers did a little digging online, “they found out I played the drums,” Jones explained, and a unique opportunity presented itself, apparently making casting decisions that much easier. “The producers were looking for some young guys who could be believable as English musicians,” Jones explained. With the doe-eyed good looks of a young Paul McCartney, the charisma to lead the band and the ability to sing with an English accent, Jones fit the bill. His ability as a drummer just added to the mix. Jones had a wonderful audition, according to Olding. “He’s a great player, first of all,” he said. “And he’s fearless. In the show, he would have to be able to play six or seven instruments, some of which he’d never
played before. I’d just throw things at him and say, ‘OK, now try this.’ And he’d be happy to have a go. That’s the sort you’d want to spend time with.” “I was offered the job as a swing,” Jones said, explaining that a swing covers a number of roles; in Jones’ case, he covers both the guitar-playing lead singer as well as the drummer in the Craze. “There are four members of the Craze and two swings.” As lead singer he gets to front the band, of course. As the drummer, he has the fun of playing not only the drums, but also the washboard and the spoons, staples of the homespun sound that is skiffle. Also included in the mix is the tea chest bass, English successor to the more American wash tub bass. “Skiffle had the same influences as early American rock ’n’ roll,” Jones said, “but it was filtered through very English sensibilities.” Despite the reserved English filter, Jones said he was drawn to skiffle’s
rawness and the almost proto-punk attitude of its early practioners. “It’s great. They would just grab something and play it loud,” he said, chuckling. The same influences that impacted skiffle’s origins touch on Jones’ own musical tastes: jazz, folk, country, blues. “Well, the Beatles, of course,” Jones responded when asked about his musical influences. “But I love a lot of old country and western stuff. A lot of early American roots music. Little Feet. The Band. Levon Helm is a major influence for me.” Helm, a multi-talented drummer, singer, stringed-instrumentalist, author and actor who fronted the influential Band and passed away on April 19, would seem to be a natural inspiration for Jones. “I had picked up his autobiography, This Wheel’s on Fire, months ago, and it was sitting on my bookshelf. I started reading it just before he died.” Olding described Jones as a bit of an old soul. “The play is set in 1953

Again After Decade, Southern Golf Team County Champions Tournament Won By a Stroke By RICK MELLERUP uch has been written in the past decade about two of Southern Regional High School’s outstanding athletic programs: its wrestling and volleyball teams. They have been, after all, perennial contenders for state championships, indeed, sometimes reaching the Promised Land. There is another Southern program that has maintained a high standard of success as well over the past several years: the boys golf team. Yet high school golf isn’t exactly a spectator sport, so the team’s excellence has been hidden under the table. It is time to rectify that situation. Southern’s boys golf team reached the pinnacle of its success in 2002, when it captured a New Jersey State Group IV Championship, under head coach Bill Hamersky. He’s moved on, and his assistant, Jeffrey Reilly, took over the team in 2005. The team has not been able to claim any more state honors since then but it has remained a force in the Shore Conference. “Last year we went 16-10, playing a very difficult schedule, and we won our division” Reilly told The SandPaper. “In 2010 we went 20-6, and also won a share of the division title.” That said, the team just couldn’t seem to put it all together since 2002.
“Our team has been very solid for a long time but we just never seemed to have four guys play their best golf on the same day in the big tournaments,” said Reilly. The team’s play in the Ocean County Tournament provides a vivid example. “We have always been close in the county tournament,” said Reilly. “We’ve been in the Top 3 every year since 2006 and have fi nished second three times, but we had not won the Ocean County Tournament.” In fact, the last time the Rams emerged as Ocean County champs was back in that fabled year 2002. Until this year, that is. In April the boys pulled off a shocker at the county tourney. “Winning the title this year was a bit of a surprise,” said Reilly, “because we are somewhat inexperienced and we had graduated our best player from the 2011 team, in Conner O’Brien.” It wasn’t easy. No less than 17 teams were represented in the tourney, with 85 golfers taking the links at Little Egg Harbor’s Sea Oaks Golf Club. When the dust settled, Southern won by one stroke over Pt. Pleasant Boro, 345 to 346. “That is correct,” said Reilly, “one shot separated the two teams over the

Connolly returns the favor while Clark putts. course of the entire tournament!” Since then the team’s success has continued. Going into a Tuesday afternoon match versus Central Regional, Reilly’s charges had racked up a 12-5 record, qualified for the Group IV South Jersey State Tournament to be held on May 14, and is once again fighting it out for an A South divisional crown. Rather amazing for a “somewhat inexperi-
enced” bunch. “We are having an excellent season because we have a group of kids that are working very hard,” said Reilly. “They love to play golf and they like being a team. We have had contributions from 10 players to our varsity lineup. The primary varsity lineup consists of two seniors, Connor Devaney and Brennan Connolly; a junior, Mike Chiodi; and two fresh-
men, Jackson Fiel and Chase Clark. Junior Ryan Berry and senior Chris Siberry have also been consistent varsity performers.” Devaney and Connolly, as their results in the Ocean County Tournament show, have been the team’s leaders.

Local Gymnasts Dynamic at State Championships T he Gymdawgs of Extreme Gymnastics in Stafford Township captured two topseven team awards at the Jersey Optional Gymnastics Association’s Level 1-4 state championships at the end of April. In addition, two of the facility’s athletes took first place in the state at the competition, held at Rutgers University. At the annual event, which this year featured nearly 400 athletes from 49 gymnastics schools throughout the state, Extreme’s Level 2 squad won the fifth-place team trophy, while their Level 3 team finished seventh. “Competing against teams where some had upwards of 15 to 20 gymnasts per squad, (and) the fact that each girl had to count a score for Extreme’s three-girl team versus clubs that sometimes were four or five times their size, their fifthplace team trophy is most impressive,” said Stan Lisowski, Extreme conditioning and strength coach. “The Level 3 team totaled 97.875 with their seventh-place finish and missed out placing several spots higher by only four-tenths!” The Level 2 team was paced by 16-year-old Margaux Terhune of Manahawkin, who scored a 34.6 in her all-around, one of her two career highs for the day. “Her overall total score was good enough for an eighth-place medal in the all-around, while she placed fifth on beam,” said Lisowski. He added, Terhune’s “9.55 floor routine was not only a personal best for her, but it also established a new school record event high and gave her the

Level 2 floor state championship in that event as well!” Meanwhile, said Lisowksi, “Fourteen-year-old Bri Mesinger from Tuckerton came into this weekend determined and focused and adamant about ‘really wanting this.’” She reached her goal, winning the Level
2 state championship on vault with a score of 9.275. She also captured fourth-place on floor and sixth in the all-around. Level 2 gymnast Haley Stack of Manahawkin had a personal best in floor exercise, where her 8.875 won her the ninth-place medal. “She also
‘stuck’ beam for the fifth straight meet, and has now nailed 13 of her last 14 beam routines, going back over two years!” said Lisowksi. “Worth mentioning is that Haley has never fallen in four career state championship events!” Leading the Level 3 team in scor-
ing was Barnegat's Kylie Picaro, who placed 15th in all-around and on floor, and nabbed 10th place on beam. As Lisowski said of Level 3 Gymdawg Ashley Hemenway from Manahawkin, “While her efforts rewarded her with the third-place award on floor in the tough 1213 age group, many coaches and gymnasts felt that artistically, it was the top performance of the entire weekend.” Level 3 team members Olivia Lattanzi, Rachel Franz and Megan Hill added some additional top-12 awards for the competition. “In what was a true team effort, each girl had at least one contributing team score towards the overall seventh-place team total,” Lisowski noted. Extreme’s sole Level 4 competitor was Maddy Kelly of Beach Haven, who notched a personal best in all-around, and placed sixth on bars and seventh on floor exercise. The JOGA League, which has six levels, is governed “by the same body of rules, more or less, as high school gymnastics,” Lisowski explained. “Our league has some caveats, though, based on skills.” Lisowski’s wife, Kim, opened Extreme in 2004, and also serves as the gym’s head coach. The firstplace finishes by Mesinger and Terhune give Kim Lisowski 54 state champions in her JOGA coaching career. For more information on Extreme Gymnastics, located at 242 S.

Hulk Hogan Appearance A Hickey Sports Success “
ow! Unbelievable!” was all Hulk Hogan could say as he emerged from the swinging doors of the kitchen at the Forked River House during a meet-and-greet with fans on April 25. “I am a Real American! Fight for what’s right – fight for your life!” went the Hulkster’s classic Rick Derringer theme song as Hogan did his trademark hand-to-the-ear pose. “Man, I needed this so bad,” Hogan remarked as Gerard Ascolese of ASAP Multimedia in Toms River began to interview him. More than 500 fans lined up in the parking lot outside for the event organized by Hickey Sports, a partnership between “FoHo” owner Chris Burris and manager Mike Hickey. For $99 fans could meet Hogan and get his autograph, while $150 meant adding an 8x10 photo printed on site. Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, is one of several well-known athletes Hickey Sports has hosted at Forked River House over the past year. Others include Jose Canseco, Daryl Strawberry, Mookie Wilson, Victor Cruz and mixed martial arts fighter Keith Jardine. None may have garnered as much attention as Hulk Hogan did
on April 25. Fans came from as far as Baltimore and upstate New York, with many wearing the classic red and yellow colors of “Hulkamaniacs,” and some even bearing tattoos in tribute to the man most consider the most iconic professional wrestler of all time. “It was great, I couldn’t ask for anything better,” said Hickey. “Everything was perfect. We had the place packed. A lot of kids in wheelchairs came in and we got them to the front of the line. People were crying. He put some wrestling moves on some of the kids.” It was the first time in five years Hogan had been in New Jersey, according to Hickey, and the first time since then he had done a meet-andgreet. “He was great with the staff here and stayed an extra amount of time than what he had to. He said he’d like to make the Forked River House his headquarters in New Jersey.” Hickey Sports grew out of both Hickey and Burris being season ticketholders with the Jets, Nets and Yankees, and the connections they have made in the sports world from being regular attendees. “We’re out in the field, so to speak. We thought, ‘Let’s open up a sports agency where we can handle our own

On May 16, Hickey Sports will host a night of comedy courtesy of professional wrestling’s “Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley, who at times
during his career was known as Cactus Jack and Mankind, among other monikers. Visits from Pete Rose, Mike Schmidt, Chuck Liddell, John Cena and possibly Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are in the works, said Hickey. Hickeysports.com will have more
information as future events become solidified. No matter what the future brings for Hickey Sports, one thing remained clear on April 25: “Hulkamania” still runs wild in South Jersey. — Michael Molinaro email@example.com

next fall, shot an 80 in the OCT, tying him for second place; Connolly, who will be off to Drexel University, fi nished in a tie for eighth with his 86. However, the contributions of the team’s underclassmen have been significant. Clark, who, it must be restated, is a mere freshman, tied for 18th at the county tournament after posting a score of 88. Fiel, his classmate, has played in every varsity match this spring and has actually managed the best nine-hole average of any of the Rams, a 41. Which means, of course, that the Southern boys golf program should keep rolling along, even after the departure of Devaney and Connolly. “It is a nice feeling, as a coach, to see a
lineup that has a balance between different grade levels,” said Reilly. “We were able to get some great leadership from our seniors – Connor and Brennan are excellent leaders and set a great example for all players in our program. Obviously, having talent in the ninth grade brings an added level of competitiveness to our team. The freshmen also bring great enthusiasm and the hope that our program will continue to be strong in the coming years. “The other nice component of this year’s team is that they all like and respect each other. There is good camaraderie between the guys in the program, and that has helped them perform at a high level.” What else is new? After all, if you are a member of the Southern Regional boys golf team, like the school’s wrestling and volleyball squads, a high level of performance is almost expected.

unwell, was found “wandering the streets” as a stray. The first shelter that got a look at her determined she had mammary cancer and should be put down. Homeless Paws intervened, collected and evaluated her, and discovered she was pregnant. In November she delivered a litter of four healthy male pups, and one of them was Toby, who is now a handsome six-month-old, gentle and well-mannered boxer mix. He had been adopted at nine weeks old but that arrangement didn’t work out, so he came back to Homeless Paws, into the foster home of the Bourgeois family, where he is happy and surrounded by love until he finds his forever home. Bourgeois said she began fostering after Pirates Day in Barnegat last September. Since then, she has taken in 11 different animals (Toby is her 11th). Her two permanent pets don’t seem to mind the temporary “boarders” who come and go. Yet for Lisa and her kids, when it comes time to let one go, “we cry every time.” Still, the feeling of reward they get from caring for a homeless pet outweighs the heartbreak of goodbye. If they were to keep one, they could no longer continue to foster, Bourgeois explained. So, “we’d rather save another dog than be selfish and keep one,” she said. Y email@example.com

and, in a way, Zach lives in 1953. He could play the show, stylistically, perfectly.” Jones has had the opportunity to go on stage a number of times since “One Man, Two Guvnors” opened April 18. He officially made his Broadway debut at the matinee performance on April 25. He also performed two songs as the lead singer with the Craze at the Manhattan Theater Club’s annual spring fundraising gala on April 30. “It was really cool,” Jones said. “Every year, they invite a couple of shows. They invited us at the last minute and it was on a Monday night, which is our night off, and the lead singer didn’t want to do it, so I went on.” With eight performances a week, it’s not surprising the lead singer took advantage of a night off. Covering two roles, Jones should get plenty of opportunities to perform. When not waiting around the Music Box
Theater in Manhattan to see if he will be needed for the evening’s performance, Jones is involved with other projects, as well. He plays drums with a rock trio, VELTA, and guitar in the Stone Lonesome, a more folky, acoustic set-up. In both bands, Jones teams with his long-time collaborator Emily Long. He has also has been hired as a sideman with such musicians as Robbie Gil, Martin Rivas, Evan Watson & the Old Orchard Band, Bess Rogers and Allison Weiss. “I’m fortunate to get to work with a few artists I love,” he said. In a show with seven Tony Award nominations and a slew of rave reviews, Jones should be busy for the foreseeable future, which he said he appreciated. “I’ve sat in the audience a few times. It’s very funny. I love this show; I’ll find myself even sitting behind the drums and I’ll be cracking up.” Olding credited much of the critical and commercial success the show has enjoyed so far to Jones and the rest of the players in the Craze. “They’ve really taken it musically to another level,” he said. “It’s a joy to see it go so well with the audience and critics alike.” Y firstname.lastname@example.org Kelley Anne Essinger

National Bike Month: a Time To Pedal About Commuting to Work Part of Life in Bike Lane By KELLEY ANNE ESSINGER pring is here, which means warm weather is approaching the Jersey Shore. Locals and visitors alike are looking forward to outdoor activities. Lucky for us, May is National Bike Month – a great excuse for digging the bike out of the garage and hitting the pavement or the dirt trail, letting the wind freely blow through your hair. National Bike Month started out as American Bike Month on behalf of the Cycle Trade Association as a way to promote the sale of bicycles. Inaugurated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956, the month-long celebration now aims to promote cycling as a fun, healthy, cost-efficient and environmentally friendly means of travel. The League of American Bicyclists was established in Newport, Rhode Island as the League of American Wheelmen, about 40 years after Kirkpatrick Macmillan supposedly invented the first pedal-driven, two-wheel bicycle in 1839. Throughout the 19th century, cyclists – or wheelmen as they were originally called – had to ride their bikes across uneven terrain and were often antagonized by jockeys, carriage drivers and foot-travelers. Hoping to improve road conditions and gain respect from fellow travelers, over 100,000 cyclists across the nation joined the League and the Good Roads Movement to campaign for paved roads, which ultimately led to the National Highway System. New Jersey was the first state to enact a law in favor of road-building projects. Today, commuting by bicycle is, in many ways, a very liberating experience for some, according to the League. Not only is it a great way to factor in the recommended 30 minutes of daily moderate exercise, it also saves money on those ever-increasing gas prices and helps reduce a person’s carbon footprint. When substituted for city car driving, which is three times more polluting per mile than highway car driving, bike riding saves the environment 3.6 pounds of pollutants per mile. Riding a bike is also more maneuverable than driving a car, which can make biking more convenient than driving in traffic – especially heavy summer shore traffic.

ROLL READY: Tommy Walters of Walters Bikes, Ship Bottom, is ready for National Bike Month. Riding a rental can ﬁll the bill.
Continued from Page 48 To further emphasize the advantages of bicycle commuting, the League has designated May 14-18 as “Bike to Work Week” and Friday, May 18 as “Bike to Work Day.” This year, for the first time ever, the National Center for Safe Routes to School has partnered with the League to promote Wednesday, May 9, as “National Bike to School Day.” But before jumping on the bike saddle, it’s important to get familiar with the rules of the road. In New Jersey, cyclists have the same rights – and the same legal responsibilities – as automobile drivers. According to the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety, this means bike commuters must ride on the right side of the road, with traffic, and traveling no more than two abreast and only if traffic is not encumbered. It’s also extremely important to obey all traffic signals and signs, especially stop signs. Riding at dusk or night requires running lights. And New Jersey law requires children under the age of 17 to wear a helmet. Everyone else is strongly encouraged to follow suit, considering head trauma is the most common cause of death or serious injury in cycling accidents. Nowadays, many helmets only weigh about six ounces, which means most people will barely notice wearing one. Helmets are also practical on hot, sunny days as they shade the head and the open vents allow a cooling airflow. Cyclists must make sure their ride is in good, working condition and properly fits their build. Before heading out, the League suggests making sure the bike’s tires are properly inflated and the quick-release wheel levers are closed. Working brakes and a smooth-running chain are also necessities. Tommy Walters, owner of Walters Bicycles in Ship Bottom, says reflectors and working headlights are vital if you’re riding around on cloudy days or at night. He says it’s also important to have a noisemaker, such as a bell or a horn, to help inform pedestrians and cars of your whereabouts. It’s a good idea to carry a few repair tools in case of an emergency. Walters suggests getting a small tool bag that can be hung behind the seat or on the handlebars to carry a tire tube patch kit, tire pump, and multi-tool that includes both an Allen wrench to adjust the seat and handlebars, and a tire iron to slip a damaged tire off the wheel rim. It’s also a good idea to carry a cell phone in case you need help. Walters Bicycles will hold a bike rodeo at the end of the month for students at the Long Beach Island Grade School in Ship Bottom. The rodeo will consist of free bicycle repairs and minor adjustments for children who bring their bikes in for maintenance. Walters says he’s been providing bike rodeos all around the area for the past 20 years and he fixes between 50 and 80 bicycles per event, as a way of giving back to the community. “I only sell bikes I can fix,” said Walters. “I
tafford Township Councilwoman Joanne Sitek has announced that she will offer two educational scholarships this year, each in the amount of $1,000, in memory of her parents, Stephen and Nedy Sitek. Her decision came on the heels of the high school scholarship drive breakfast she attended, along with about 150 other people, where she learned that approximately $500,000 was awarded in scholarships last year, to aid in the personal and professional betterment of the graduates, who will shape the future. So deeply impressed was she by the talent of the students and by the community’s outpouring of generosity – business owners and private residents alike – that she was inspired to contribute in her own way by sponsoring scholarships in her parents’ names. One scholarship will be awarded to a student pursuing the field of either political science or pre-law, in honor of her father, who was politically active in their North Jersey hometown and is the reason why Sitek is the civic-minded person she is today. A second scholarship will further a student’s study of the performing arts, in honor of her mother, who was Sitek’s business partner in the dance studio they owned together in Bloomfield. A qualified applicant will show strong academic promise and real interest and have at least some related experience in the subject area the scholarship would support, Sitek explained. She plans to set up the scholarships through the school district soon, to ensure the funds would be available by the end of this school year. —V.L. love what I do, and I want customers to come back to my shop,” he added. “There are a lot of folks who maintain their bikes, and a lot of people who don’t do anything,” said Walters. “Maintenance comes along with safety. Sometimes people come in and they have no brakes or pads left. If they don’t want to come in for a regular tune-up, they should at least look over their bike themselves.” Cyclists nowadays have many riding options, from performance road bikes to recreational cruisers. Walters says commuter bicycles are more comfortable than ever, complete with extra-padded saddles and upright handlebars. Bike shorts have padding in all the right places, especially for the buttocks, and bike shirts are great for wicking away moisture. Though many people see bike gloves as gimmicky, they’re actually good for preventing carpal tunnel syndrome, as the gel in the palms cushions much of the vibration pulsing through the hands when riding a bike. If you still find cycling to be a struggle, Walters suggests investing in an electric bike by Pedego or Tommy Bahama, equipped with battery-operated electric motors. The bicycles look just like regular bikes, and the lithium ion batteries are lightweight and packed with power. A fully charged battery should get you as far as 30 miles at 20 miles per hour – the legal speed limit for electric bicycles. Of course, wind resistance and a person’s height and weight will play a role in how long the battery actually lasts. Electric bicycles are great for those commuting to work because they don’t require any real physical activity, which means there’s no sweat involved. They’re also great for people with heart conditions or knee problems, or senior citizens who want to keep up with their children and grandchildren, while also enjoying the benefits of riding a bike on a beautiful, sunny day. And if you want to use the electric bikes for exercise, they can also be pedaled manually. Pedego and Tommy Bahama electric bicycles run in price from $1,850 and up at Walters Bicycles. Walters says the price is worth it, and many people are opting to buy them. For more suggestions on how to get involved in bicycle commuting, visit the League of American Bicyclists at www.bikeleague.org or call Walters Bicycles at 609-494-1991. Y

A Pointless Patriot; When Time Comes To Close Bay Places W ell, it seems I’m no longer a full-blown fellow American, despite my devout, Taliban-targeting, gun-totting, ground-worshipping, Born in the U.S.A. nationalism. In fact, it seems I’m attached to the American fabric by one badly frayed thread. I was crudely advised of my shaky homeland status while obediently trying to renew my NJ driver’s license. I knew full well that there was this convoluted identification point system that I needed to fulfill, thusly rendering me both a legal driver and also a bona fide American. What I would soon have pointed out is how pointless I’ve become in the eyes of Homeland Security and its assigned point people – in my case, the unblinking eyes of the DMV, technically the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. All in all, I needed something like six stinkin’ points of ID proofedness. Although I heard it wasn’t all that hard to document one’s good American standing, I’ve long been quite light on deeds and certifications and paperwork and documents. Still, I headed over to Manahawkin’s DMV clutching the contents from a safety deposit box worth of ID-ish bits and pieces. To a shred, it turned out the saved and salvaged pages of my life were, at best, vague and pointless mementoes of having essentially only visited America – albeit since birth and before. The pride of my life box – and what I thought to be the most pointworthy paper I owned – was an admittedly oddly yellowed but legible baptismal certiﬁcate – signed by an actual priest much less. The holy paperwork didn’t even garner a “No.” A DMV maven merely pointed to a pamphlet and the words, “No religious documents.” What a kick in the irony ass! In God We Trust – just not His paperwork. Reeling from that f irst-round punch to the soul, I was forced to counter with what amounted to a technical ace in my heritage hole. I quasi-confidently whipped out a timedevastated birth certificate. OK, so maybe it wasn’t an actual birth certificate, per se, but it sure as hell was a very official facsimile of a previous copy of what might have been my original birth certificate – which, by the way, had dissolved or some damn thing, back in the Sixties. I remember my mom telling me, “Your birth certificate dissolved or some damn thing. I have this copy, which is probably useless.” I recall my response down to a syllable: “What’s for dinner?” As I handed over my sorta birth certificate, even I could see it looked about as realistic and convincing as that yellow stuff they squirt on popcorn at the movie theater. The response wasn’t as bad as I had expected. “It doesn’t have a seal.” That’s all that’s wrong with it. Damn. I stared at the handed-back document and – I swear to you this is true – I actually flashed on a harbor seal I had seen last week. Even when my mind refocused on the issue at hand, I was
sorely tempted to offer, “I know where I could find a harbor seal real fast.” But this was a tough room, to say the least. One false move, one wise-assed Mannly utterance, and I’d be driver’s license-less – and akin to countryless! Then, as if inch-worming toward a green leaf of compassion, the DMV maven made a helpful overture, possibly to help or maybe just get me the hell outta line. “Do you have an ATM card?” Huh? “Damn straight I got one.” Out and over goes my Bank of America ATM card – and back it flies in nothing flat. “It doesn’t have a middle initial. You can’t use it.” WTF!? “Here, look, I’ll just pencil it in. See, there’s a nice ‘G.’ And it stands for Geronimo. You can’t get any more Americana than that.” “That doesn’t work,” she said. “How about an income tax form?” “Anyone can pay taxes.” Wow. That was profound – or something. I vowed to think about that later. At that point, I was going down with the ship – a ship with no port of origin, no nationality. I had always considered a skull and crossbones tattoo. Face it, Jay, the stinkin’ Taliban have better US ID than you do. So, I stood there, groping inside my bag, and feigned having more useful point-garnering documentary evidence, knowing I was down to my saltwater angler registry card, a library card I had borrowed from a friend and a Joe Pop’s “Guest Pass” I hadn’t used. Just like that, I was teetering on nonexistence. To think the day had started so sunny and mild. By now, a number of other impatient folks in line behind me began sliding past. I glanced over and saw their documentary lives were in perfect presenting order. They bandied about crisp birth certificates, ATM cards with a slew of middle initials, a poker deck worth of perfectly focused photo IDs; hell, they had the entire existential shebang – all but rolling in frickin’ points. Of course, none of them spoke a bloody syllable of English but damn if they didn’t get re-licensed in a New York minute. That’s when it hit me. In what would surely be the oddest reversal of order known to Mann, I realized I needed to get over to LBI and find my good old Mexican buddy Carlos. “Oye, mano. Que pasa? Look, Carlos, I need some good fake ID, amigo.” “Porque?” “Uh, to prove I’m an American.” “Now, let me get this straight, mang, you’re an American but you need fake ID to prove you’re an American?” “Yep, I guess that’s kinda it. I just need to know where you got all your cool IDs from?” “Mi hermano en Jalisco.” “Jalisco? As in down Mexico way?” “Si, esse.” “Crap! Does he ever make house calls up here in the US or anything?”
No Season Is a Good Season South End Could Use Refuge From the Storms A ROAD TOO FAR: As the Island’s south end, Holgate by name, begins its four-month forsaking of humanity – to allow birds to rule the Forsythe Refuge roost– one intruder even the National Wildlife Refuge System can’t drive away is erosion. This rocky row is a small display of how badly Holgate is being eaten away. “No, he makes too much dinero down there to ever leave. You have to go see him, mang.” So, get this, fellow Americanos: I’m now faced with the uninviting task of sneaking across the border – into frickin’ Mexico! I can just see me now, swimming across the Rio Grande against the tide, so to speak. Five million Mexicans swimming this way and here I am swimming against the human flow of traffic. “Sorry. Oops. My bad. Sorry. Didn’t see you there in the dark. Ouch. You gotta hard head. Whoa, amigo, looks like I knocked one of your pot bundles off. Here, I’ll swim over and get it.” Truth be told, I somehow wormed my way into a short-term driver’s license renewal. The thing is, when it runs out I’m a royally screwed, no-paperwork, illegally driving, Rio Grande swimming, former American. Admittedly, the ACLU is now fighting to prevent folks like myself from someday hearing those fateful Homeland Security Commission words, “We don’t care where you go but you can’t stay here,” sorta like those Indian caste “untouchables” were told. Of course, I’ll derive some odd comfort in knowing the creator of this “Prove You’re an American” inquisition, former President Obama, will be nomadically wandering around with me, now-andagain screaming, “I’m telling you this is really my birth certificate!” FISH-FRIENDLY BRIDGE: I got an e-mail regarding the latest DOT updates on the “New” Causeway Bridge – work allegedly beginning next year. The e-mailer asked if there were still plans to build a fishing dock as part of the project. Kinda, sorta, maybe. The building of a large sister span, to stand just south of the existing Causeway Bridge, falls under Phase 1. That’s the big build, so to speak. Far less dramatic is Phase 2, which includes plans to rehabilitate the “approach bridges,” which I colloquially ID as the Hochstrasser Bridge (closest to LBI), the Dutchman’s Bridge and the Margo Bridge (mainland side).
The last I heard tell, there will be a fishing cutout on the north side of the Hochstrasser Bridge. That said, virtually any and all fishing-friendly additions to any and all DOT projects have been the first things nixed in the face of cost overruns, a certainty. If you want to keep the DOT on course toward a fishing sector on the Causeway, I suggest using the coercive power of fishing clubs and angling organizations (RFA and JCAA). By the by, in a perfectly built world, the work on the approach bridges could be underway as early as 2015. In the far shakier real world, I’d be stunned to hell and back if even the sister span project begins by then. MAXIMIZE YOUR MEAT: As fluke fishing season takes hold, I’ll reiterate my perennial waste-not suggestion: cook fluke in the round – skin, head and all. That’s a no-brainer when cooking fluke on a barbeque. Bare fluke fillets go to pieces when rack cooked. There is no other fish flesh easier to peel off the bones than that on a nicely baked flounder – after the crisp skin is pulled off. The delectable white meat comes off clean and gorgeous. Try dipping it in a light butter, like lobster. On a barbeque note, cook whole fluke with the head off. This allows that outdoors flavor to leak in. You won’t believe how much extra meat you get cooking fish whole – regardless of how great a filleter you may be. PARTY POOOPING: Here’s the point (in most every column) where I get somebody’s goat. I’m not sure what that means exactly, but my grandmother would often say it. And it sounded kinda cool, in a get-the-goat manner. Also, goats are quite cool to get – by the horns. They’ll blissfully push back all day and into the night, with a dedication akin to a retriever going after its slobbery tennis ball. Goatishly, a few folks will surely push back over my agreeing with Forsythe Refuge’s recent shutdown of profoundly partying zones of Barnegat Bay, adjacent to federal property. No, I’m not concurrently giving in to the notion that the refuge can
overtly and routinely inflict its wilderness will upon state/publically-owned areas near their lands, but in the case of oft-raging F-Cove and T-Cove, up north Barnegat Bay way, even the NJDEP agrees enough blatant partying is enough. And, yes, I’m familiar with the goings on thereabouts, though I’ve seen it primarily in passing. Per critics of the party coves, the myriad of folks anchoring thereabout on hot summer days display nary a feather’s worth of wildlife appreciation, except maybe when trying to get laughing gulls to drink beer. “Come mere ya little bustard, I’ll give ya sumpin to really laugh about.” The only conservation that takes place occurs when beer kegs start running low. During crazed party bay days, it’s the wildlife that gawks in amazement at the humans. I picture a snowy egret nervously crouching behind some bushes, speaking in whispers to a heron holding a video camera: “Here we have a pack of partying homo sapiens. Many of the nearly naked males are issuing raucous communicative sounds, seemingly meant to attract females or fend off rivals. Despite the poorly kempt appearance and physical condition of the noisiest of males, many of the females are seemingly aroused, returning highpitched squeals of their own, roughly resembling ‘Woo, woo!’ The females even seem to be egging the males into bizarre physical displays with no apparent functionality whatsoever – as is clearly seen here. Let’s try to get in a closer, Mel. Oh, my, this has surely never been seen before now. An obviously well fed male has placed a large, white container over his head and is now flapping his arms rhythmically while walking around, allowing other males to aim fierce blows at the container. Are you getting this, Mel?!” Anyway, does this fed/state shutdown move mean other partyous bay areas are also under the gun? Well, some locals are certain the famed and oft packed and frolicking Tice’s Shoal is next in line. By the by, you might want to go to YouTube and type in “Tice’s Shoal” just to get an Continued on Page 55
he burning of the ferryboat New Jersey on the night of March 15, 1856, as it crossed the Delaware River from Philadelphia to Camden left several unanswered questions. More than 150 years later, the number of dead still isn’t definitely known; reports claim anywhere from 37 to near 70. A week after the fire, the Philadelphia Bulletin reported. “Four bodies in all were found yesterday, and sums up the total number of dead recovered, up to last night, to twenty seven. “The body of young Weatherby, which was found in the course of the day, was considerably burned, and his clothing was in the same condition. In his pockets were two daguerreotype likenesses of Miss Massey, to whom, it is said, he was engaged to be married. The hapless couple perished in each other’s arms. “During yesterday several fragments of clothing were brought up upon the grappling irons. “Mrs. Simons subsequently came in and claimed the body of her husband. Upon being asked how she could prove the identity of the body, she stripped the sleeve from the left arm and showed his name inscribed in full, in India ink, upon the arm! There was no getting over this evidence, and the body was given in charge of the wife. “This morning the search for bodies was continued; the John Fitch and several small boats were engaged in the work. The crowd at the wharves was not so great as usual. The ice was very troublesome; no bodies were recovered during the forenoon. The body of a female was brought to the surface by one of the ‘drags,’ but at the same moment a cake of ice struck the boat, and the body was again lost.” The other questions on everyone’s lips were how could it happen and who was to blame. These questions would lead to the doorstep of Richard F. Stockton, 61 years old, from Princeton, who was famous for the conquest of California. At the time, he was running for president of the United States. Stockton, who had served as a U.S. senator from New Jersey, was president of the Camden and Amboy Railroad, which oversaw the operation of the New Jersey. With bodies still floating in the river, W.B. Reed, the district attorney for Philadelphia, sent instructions to the city’s coroner. “In my opinion the properties of the ferry boat which was destroyed last night, with its freight of human beings, are liable to be indicted for some form of homicide if you shall ascertain and all matters of fact are for your determination either that there were no boats or no boats enough or other means of rescue at a moment of impending danger. I consider the latter responsibility quite as grave as the former. I beg therefore to direct your attention and added the inquest on the bodies of the dead to these inquiries. “First as to the cause of the deaths by violence. “Second whether the fire was a result of carelessness on the part of those in charge of the boat. “Third whether there were sufficient means of escape furnished by those who are the proprietors of the boat. “Fourth who are the proprietors of boat and if a corporation its name and the names of its director or managers.” The next morning, the coroner held an inquest, and tempers flared. The Philadelphia Ledger reported the day after the fire, “TESTIMONY OF THE CAPTAIN. William S. Corson, of Camden, being sworn – I was Captain of the steamboat New-Jersey; she was rebuilt in the Summer of 1855: she was a substantial boat, and had not been cut through; the laws of the United States do not require ferry boats to keep life preservers and life-boats.” But on the Jersey side of the river, events had already taken place. According to Camden County historian Charles S. Boyer, “At the time of the burning of the New Jersey a number of directors of the Camden & Amboy Railroad were stopping at Elwell’s Hotel, at the foot of
Bridge Avenue. Upon the advice of an astute lawyer friendly to the directors, a messenger was dispatched to the home of Prosecutor Thomas W. Mulford at Pennsgrove, and in the dead of night he proceeded to Camden and caused warrants to be issued for the arrest of Robert F. Stockton and his associates in the directorate of the railroad company on charges of manslaughter.” This meant there would be an investigation on both sides of the river. But only one could have jurisdiction, and the Jersey lawyers knew all about the treaty that even predated the U.S. Constitution. Boyer continues, “Under the ‘concurrent jurisdiction’ agreement of May 23, 1783 between the States of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, in the case of criminal cases, the offenders were to be tried in the State in which first arrested or prosecuted.” The New York Times reported on May 1, 1856, just how bizarre the battle became. “Quite an excitement prevailed at Camden, N.J., yesterday, in regard to the investigation of the Coroner in regard to the destruction of the New-Jersey. About 1 o’clock, Coroner Birdsell, in company with the inquest, proceeded on board what is left of the hull of the steamer New-Jersey. “Coroner Birdsell informed the Marshal that his authority was above that of Justice Shivers or any constable in the county, and that he should proceed to perform his duty. … “By this time a number of picked men, the employees of the Company, made their appearance, and together with several police officers took possession of the hull. “The Coroner left the ground and shortly after returned with a constable, who arrested Marshal Sterling and another officer, by virtue of a warrant issued by Justice Myers. “Dr. Thomas Forthwith commenced to place the planks on the boat, but he was violently resisted by the Company’s employees, who, by this time, had increased rapidly.” Then, according to the Times, “A steam-tug put into the wharf at this time, having on board the body of John T. Parsons, one of the victims of the New-Jersey. … A plain gold ring on the finger of the deceased bore the inscription, ‘A mother, to John T. Parsons.’ The hands of the deceased were horribly burned, and his face was much swollen and disfigured. “Coroner Birdsell then addressed the persons on the shore, declaring that the law could not be enforced, in consequence of the interference of the employees of the Company, the DistrictAttorney and the coordinate authorities.” An independent investigation was held by a committee of Camden citizens; the New York Sun reported their findings on March 29. “The report condemns the absence of the fireman, at the time the fire broke out, he being compelled by the Company to act as a deck hand. It censures the utter inefficiency of the officers and their want of self-possession in attempting to run the boat aground at Philadelphia wharf, instead of backing her on the bar or on the sloping shore of the Island. Leaving the engine running, after the pilot and engineer left their post, is also condemned. The absence of any provision for the rescue of the passengers, under the circumstances, is strongly commented upon. “The Committee, having examined the several boats employed on the different ferries of the Delaware, pronounced that, in nearly every instance, they are old, rotten, un-safe and unprovided with any means of escape, should any serious accident occur. They are without life boats, life-preservers, or the means of extinguishing fire, which is imminent, from the inadequate and faulty construction of the furnace unless the greatest precaution should be observed.” But all the investigations were meaningless. It was the question of law and politics. Boyer explained to the Camden County Historical Society in 1911, “The Directors and officers of the ferry company were promptly placed under arrest by the prosecutor of Camden Continued on Page 55

Continued from Page 52 idea of what kinda partying we’re talking about here. It’s pretty damn impressive. However, I’ve never seen Tice’s get as environmentally ruinous as the Coves, where it’s a proximity-tonature matter. On the other goat’s hoof, I can see why understandably paranoid angler groups, particularly the Jersey Coast Anglers Association, will see a threatening precedent being set in the name of B Bay protection. JCAA has long been passionately opposed to the closing of any bay areas to public access. Anglers become little more than the “public” in enforcement’s eyes. I stay in lock step with their fears until I see the disruptive folly of environmentally-inconsiderate partiers. In fact, I’m not sure I want to align with rowdies even in the name of angling freedom. In the name of political fairness and journalistic honesty, I’ve never been wild about pleasure boaters. Admittedly, it’s a blind prejudice that may well have sprouted out of jealousy. I spent way too many years treading the muck and sucking surface slime while clamming for a living. To see pleasure boats zip by with music blaring, bikinied women laughing and hot-sh*t captains purposely diverting into the shallows to wake me led to more than a few clam slingings, and a lingering intolerance. Back to today, even when boat ﬁshermen jam into a certain hot-hooking bay space, they cause no damage and disruption vis-à-vis powerpartiers. It’s always in the interest of angling to keep things as clean and quiet as possible. I’ll even show I’m not a total party pooper by defending Ship Bottom’s splashingly popular celebration shoal, just south of the borough’s bayside bathing beach. It has a very low environo-impact, despite keel-to-keel vessels. It might even act as an example of proper gathering/partying zones, located where summer fun can be had without dragging down the bay. ADMIRABLE ADMIRALS: I’ve been swarmed under by reports of bizarre numbers of butterﬂies a-ﬂit over Ocean County, the state and even across the nation. For whatever reason, be it natural, mineral or mystical (see below), red admiral butterﬂies made a record-shattering showing during this year’s northward migration. Millions atop millions of these mediumsized, brownish butterflies, with distinctive splotches of bright red or orange on their lower wings, have the media buzzing. While researching the event via Google, I randomly hit on this quote: “We’ve had reports from all over the city of people looking at trees in their yards like red bud or apple or lilac, and seeing dozens of red admirals crawling over the ﬂowers,” said entomologist Douglas Taron of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. Turned out that was from CBS Chicago. Gives an idea of how widespread and newsworthy this admirable butterﬂy bonanza became. Virtually every place between here and there

These ofﬁcials thus came under the jurisdiction of the New Jersey State Courts. Inquests were held by the Coroner’s juries for both Philadelphia and Camden, the verdict of the former being that the deaths were the result of criminal negligence on the part of the company in operating a boat that was entirely unﬁt for the transportation of passengers, while the Camden jury practically exonerated these ofﬁcials. … The Grand Jury of Camden refused … to return any indictments in the case.” All charges in Pennsylvania were null and void under the provision of the 1783 treaty.

clipping a small piece of the tails to see if they’re catching the same ﬁsh each year. While I know they use clam as bait, they also have an entire buffet of “secret” baits – though I once noticed a couple of those white Styrofoam dishes that held fresh chicken parts lying on the bottom of their boat. That wouldn’t be the ﬁrst time I’ve heard of the chicken and drum connection.

was admiraled under. But what could such a showing mean? It could mean a lot of butteﬂies showed up. Or, lest I resist: In the annotated version of the now notorious “Kiss Your Ass So-Long” Mayan calendar, a highly-respected shaman wrote a thousand years back, and I quote directly from King Jay’s Version: “And toward the end of days, medium-sized brownish butterﬂies – with distinctive splotches of bright red or orange on their lower wings – shall ﬂutter northward in torrential numbers and, unbeknownst to those on the planet in those dim days, these ﬂitters shall soon inherit the Earth. After end times, the Age of Butterﬂies will commence, initiating the longest period of peace ever seen on the planet.” Hey, you can’t make this stuff up. Forget the strawberry ﬁelds, try “Butterﬂy wings for ever.” Harmonizes in perfectly. Personally, I’m trying everything I can do to join the march of the admiral butterﬂies, hoping to convince them it might, in the end, be kinda fun to keep a token human around, namely me. “I won’t eat much pollen at all.” The ones I talked to pertly said they’d think about it – then took off, kinda snooty like. Powdery little bastards. RUNDOWN: Bass are out there and awaiting. The Simply Bassin’ event is underway and I’ll soon have a snug read on stripering action. The contest goes all the way to June 24 so get signed up and add some competitive vitality to your spring stripering. Blowﬁsh are everywhere, bayside. Possibly too many people cashing in on them. This is really not the time to nab them. Every one of them is full of roe. I’ll bet you’ll be able to bang away at them all summer after the honker down post-spawn. Be patient. They don’t go anywhere until fall. Waves of racer/cocktail/eater-sized/tailor blues are showing in surf, sea and inlets, though not yet in typical springtime numbers. Of course, these ravenous rowdies are not overly appreciated when they go for ﬂuke rigs. And there’s virtually no ﬂuke angler who doesn’t know at a rod-tip glance “that’s a blue” messin’ with the drift. Kyle M. had 28-incher that came in “bit real bad.” Sounds like a blueﬁsh smack, but, with the warmer water, you can’t rule out sharks. We’re going to have an insane shark year, even close to the beach. I’m not talking human-inclined sharks here, but the far more passive types, i.e. duskies, browns, threshers, blues, sands – though whites are making quite a comeback, according to some studies. No sooner do I mention that black drumming is slow than a mainland crew that targets the big ﬁsh sent my a photo of a couple massive ﬁsh. They weren’t overly impressed with the somewhat ugly looking monsters but I was. They’re now

The Maine Course Is Lobster As Down East Sails Into LBI S
eafood, New-England style,” at The Maine Course restaurant, is getting a hearty reception on Long Beach Island. Features like the succulent lobster rolls piled high are speaking for themselves when customers ﬁnd the new eatery in North Beach Haven. In its first weekend, a hundred patrons took out meals each day of Friday, Saturday and Sunday in late April, well before the real season starts. In the down times, co-owner Cheryl Palermo got out and met the neighbors. She took the food “to the people” with trays of soup samples. That’s a snapshot of the friendly way they run the business – they’ve already pledged to enter Chowderfest and take part in LBIFest and the ﬁrstever Pour Into Summer Wine Festival. “We’re loving it,” Palermo said on the Friday, May 4 that was marked “Day 7” on the blackboard. “We’re getting our name out there, and on the down days I took trays of sample New England clam chowder and lobster stew to the people – Realtors, several businesses, marinas, the townhouses, the trailer parks all the way down at the end. You name it, we’re going everywhere. They’re telling us, ‘Bring back the menus and we’ll give them out.’ Word is going to spread, and that’s the best form of advertisement.” For the next couple of weeks, days open are Thursday to Sunday starting at 11 a.m. at the quaint and decorated
“shore shack” at 1301 Long Beach Boulevard, North Beach Haven. It’s mainly take-out, delivery and catering, but there’s a painted picnic area out front, and a counter with stools inside. Cheryl and husband, Tom, bought the spot from the owners of the former Tiki Taco – Tiki Taco partner Mike Mercadante is a friend, who also built their house in Holgate. If homemade lobster salad or a casual plate of clam strips sounds like the perfect Maine Course, it did to the Palermos, too – ﬁrst when they were scouting out a place to eat while on vacation in Kittery, Maine two years ago. Their inspiration is “Bob’s Clam Hut,” which they were pointed to while there, and which is quite famous. Guy Fieri featured Bob’s on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins & Dives,” and it has won “Best Of ” awards from Down East magazine and Boston magazine. “We sat down and I ordered a hot lobster roll. I took one bite of it and I said, ‘Oh my goodness, that’s what we need on the Island!’ Because I’ve been coming here all my life, ever since I was a baby,” said Cheryl. “New England style” has come back with them because, as it turns out, Bob’s’ former kitchen manager, Tana Laughton, decided to move to Long Beach Island for the summer with the Palermos and show them the ropes. “Just to make sure we get that New England piece of it just right,” said Cheryl.
Tom Palermo is the former president of Communication Workers of America (CWA) Local 1039 in Trenton, and Cheryl worked in the ofﬁce for him. The restaurant came together not long after Tom’s term as the union local leader came to an end after 11 years. They followed their dream and opened The Maine Course. “I had stored it (the idea for the restaurant) in my mind, because we knew that because he was the president, which is an elected position, we knew that at some point he wouldn’t run again or maybe not win, and that’s what happened. When he ran for a fourth term, he didn’t make it this time. And now we were both out of a job. In the meantime, I had never forgotten that lobster roll concept, and the whole idea of seafood New England-style,” recalls Cheryl. With a full kitchen crew, a full menu and a totally re-done interior, which includes Tom’s model car collection along a ceiling rail, Cheryl looked around the new establishment on that seventh day and described it as “the kind of place I’d like to go when I’m on vacation.” Not only lobster rolls, but a grilled roll carrying clam strips or chicken salad are among the menu choices. Try a crab cake sandwich; pineapple and shrimp salad; a house salad of fresh mixed greens with walnuts, mango and dried cranberries; coconut shrimp by the entrée or by the Maine bucket, to name a few more. At $21.99
ON BOARD: Tom and Cheryl Palermo (left and right, rear)with Chef ‘Biggy’ Melusky (front); cook Harry Spears and son Frank Palermo as mascot. is the dinner of fried or broiled seafood combo of shrimp, scallops and ﬂounder, served with sides. Homemade lemonade or a ﬁne coffee blend are two of many beverages.

Harvey Cedars Fitness Opens on LBI’s North End
ith the recent grand opening of Harvey Cedars Fitness, year-rounders and part-timers alike now have a new exercise facility option on Long Beach Island. Last weekend, owner Dawn Anastasi, her ﬁancé Tom Barrett, and a few staff members welcomed the many interested potential clients that ﬁltered in and out of the ﬁtness center at 7806-B Long Beach Blvd. in Harvey Cedars. “I’m thrilled to be able to offer something on the north end of the Island,” said Anastasi, who promises that the gym will be open all year long. “There was deﬁnitely a need for this up here. I felt that the north end needed a gym, and I wanted to give it a try.” On Sunday, employees Marybeth Arnone and Mollie Hetzel pointed out that, previously, residents and visitors on the Island’s northern section would have to travel farther than they may have liked to get to a gym, which becomes even more of a hassle in the busy summer months. Also, they added, it’s sometimes hard to manage and freeze longterm memberships at other gyms, while Harvey Cedars Fitness offers year-round residents and summer visitors the convenience of monthly memberships and vacation packages: a single visit for $35, three visits for $90, ﬁve visits for $140 or 10 visits for $275, which can be shared among family members. “We’re a resort community,
WORK OUT: Dawn Anastasi uses a machine at Harvey Cedars Fitness, which she just opened last weekend. Anastasi, who also owns Elite Fitness in Beach Haven Terrace, said the new facility will remain open year ’round. and the masses come and go,” said Anastasi. Individual, partner and group training sessions – 30 or 60 minutes – are also available. The gym offers local and student rates as well as discounts for servicemen, policemen and firemen (and women).
Anastasi opened her original gym, Elite Fitness at 12904 Long Beach Blvd. in Beach Haven Terrace, in 2000. She offers monthly memberships and holds a number of group ﬁtness and personal training classes at that facility. In addition to bosu, spin, step, zumba, strength, pilates, kick-boxing and hi-lo aerobics, Elite
will begin offering TRX suspension training classes next month. Harvey Cedars Fitness, meanwhile, features brand-new, sophisticated cardio and strength training equipment: treadmills, an elliptical, a stationary bike, a dual cable system, a machine for leg extensions Continued on Page 58
Melusky’s resume has a Mexican twist that came out in the creation of The Maine Burger, a half-pound burger topped with “chipotle, beerbattered onions and a cheese our own chef can’t even pronounce,” proclaims the menu. (It’s petit basque, found by “Biggie” at a food show.) So if you don’t like seafood, come in anyway, they say. Tom Palermo would rather have a burger, too, and so the menu has several, including veggie. “We’re going to be bringing in whole steamed lobster shortly. People are asking for it, so we’re going to get a lobster tank that we ordered today,” Melusky said on May 4. Yes, there are at least a couple of other places that serve lobster roll, but they’re all different and so is the overall experience, Cheryl Palermo afﬁrmed. “There are excellent seafood restaurants on Long Beach Island … we want to offer things that other people don’t, so we can all work together as a community,” she said. Having come through some hard times themselves in a brief unemployment period, they believe in giving back by supporting local food pantries at St. Francis Center and at King of Kings Community Church. Then in success, the couple feels “the glory goes to God.” “There aren’t any coincidences with God, and the way everything has come together so beautifully, we know it’s Him. And so we’re going full-force on this, believing that we’re on some kind of mission to give back to the community, so to speak,” Cheryl said. “We want people, when they walk in no matter how they feel, to feel better when they leave; to have a very good, wonderful, positive experience.” One of the first customers certainly did, a girl who came back in to the store and said, “I ate the clam chowder, I fell asleep on the beach and dreamed of clam chowder, and now I want another pint.” The Maine Course can be reached by phone at 609-492-2328; there is a Facebook page, and the online site is themainecourselbi.com.

In the summer, the hours will stretch from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Anastasi employs seven total trainers, all of whom will ﬂoat between Elite and Harvey Cedars Fitness, which she said features “a nonthreatening, pleasant environment.” “It’s clean, it’s fresh, it’s new,” said Stacey Maggio of Brant Beach, who was checking out the facility with her mother, Linda Maggio of Harvey Cedars, on Sunday. “It would be really close for my mom to walk here. And it’s nice not to have to leave the Island in the summer.” Dr. Dick Goldstein and his wife, Mary Beth Goldstein, of 78th St. in Harvey Cedars are also in walking distance of the new gym. “No excuses now,” Mary Beth laughed.

For Prince, success in the Lighthouse International Film Festival’s fourth year means ﬁrst and foremost making sure people enjoy the ﬁlms and have a great experience. It also means having the event graduate to the realm of a weekend destination festival for ﬁlm fans in surrounding metropolitan areas. “We have a lineup that’s as good as some festivals in Nantucket that have been around 20 years,” Prince said, who described himself as “obsessed” and added it drives him crazy when Lighthouse gets compared to other ﬁlm festivals in N.J., when none are able to acquire ﬁlms from major festivals. Prince and his team view hundreds of ﬁlms in person at festivals around the world and cultivate relationships with their ﬁlmmakers following screenings that impress them. “If you’re not actively engaging them so that when you’re e-mailing them they know who you are, and it’s something that grows from there, I don’t think you have a chance of getting those top ﬁlms. Not a lot of festivals have a team like ours, which is why they don’t have these ﬁlms. At some point we’re going to get recognized for that. So we’ll see.” On Monday, a full program for this year’s festival was released at lighthouseﬁlmfestival. org. More information can be found concerning new venues this year, free tickets for college students, and more. Y firstname.lastname@example.org

Because of the small size, Anastasi has not planned to hold classes at Harvey Cedars Fitness, as she does at Elite, though she imagines she could feature circuit training classes in the current space. This month’s “soft opening” includes 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. hours at the ﬁtness center, seven days a
Continued from Page 29 Last year the independent ﬁlm website indiewire.com added the Lighthouse International Film Festival to its “Best Film Fests That June Has to Offer” list, along with others in Edinburgh, Shanghai and Transylvania – the ﬁrst N.J.-based ﬁlm festival to be recognized. Following last year’s festival, Lighthouse gained the support – and state grants – of the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism, which will double the festival’s promotion by $30,000. The aggressive advertising campaign will include a billboard and spots on radio stations, and focuses on drawing a new wave of patrons from surrounding metropolitan areas to Long Beach Island for the ﬁrst weekend of June. Other grants were gained from the Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, the Ocean County Cultural and Heritage Commission and the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders, who also issued a proclamation read by Shragger. “Now therefore be it resolved that June 1-3, 2012 be named Lighthouse International Film Festival days in Ocean County and we encourage all citizens to experience these new, exciting, and challenging ﬁlms in honor of Long Beach Island’s historic Barnegat Lighthouse.”
