Why Should Penn State Innocents Suffer Deeply for Four Men’s Sins? By STEVEN DERION everal months ago I wrote a column in which I defended my pride in Penn State when the news of the Jerry Sandusky scandal first broke. I am writing again to defend my university against the onslaught directed toward it that has dragged the name of this institution even further through the mud. As if being connected to the most horrific scandal in the history of college athletics is not enough, this adds insult to injury. I said in my original essay I was not defending Paterno, Spanier, Curley or others for their actions, and I stand by that. In fact, they are more responsible for this scandal than Sandusky himself. Philosopher Edmund Burke is believed to have once said, “The only thing that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for men of good will to do nothing.”

S

Uninvited Guests By MARION DURNING y eldest asked to borrow the car to do what in my opinion was completely unfathomable. He was going to one of those vitamin/health food emporiums to purchase high protein and carbohydrate shakes. The desired effect was to put on weight. I know, completely insane! For maybe the first time in my life I was rendered speechless. After I picked myself up off the floor, and pinched myself to make sure this was not a dream, I issued my heartfelt warning: Never, and I mean never, willingly invite pounds to come and live on your body! Had he not noticed the genetic pool from which he had sprung? The majority of his biological family wages the battle of the bulge daily. Some have kept the pounds at bay; others are not as successful. There are a few lucky ones, those who manage to stay thin without even trying, but we know they are mutants. We must be ever vigilant, keeping our borders closed to pounds seeking a permanent home, for once they are aboard they breed faster than the Octo-Mom. They also invite friends. Many friends. Over the years we have issued eviction notices to these freeloaders, the writ being prepared by the firm of Atkins, J. Craig & Weight Watchers, located in South Beach. They may leave temporarily, but they always return, and never alone! Usually they begin hopping on board with great stealth. Your clothes still fit, although your favorite blue jeans are not quite as roomy after they go through the dryer cycle. You may also notice that manufacturers are making outfits in your size a tad smaller. At your favorite clothing boutique, the only thing that fits is earrings. Candid photos appear to follow a reverse side view mirror warning: Things appear larger than they really are. Pictures of your face are blurry around the bottom of your chin. Continued on Page 8

Well, Jerry Sandusky was obviously a very sick man, perpetrating very evil acts against innocent children. Head coach Joe Paterno, university President Graham Spanier, Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley were all men supposedly of good will, all of whom did nothing, and in some cases did worse, by helping to cover it up. If there is any justice in the justice system, all of those men (Paterno excluded) will spend the majority of the remainder of their lives in prison, and with good reason. However, the media was not happy with this outcome. They wanted a pound of flesh, and they were going to get it, no matter what. Paterno died, so they could take only so much out on him and his family. Sandusky’s criminal defense crumbled, and off to prison he went. Curley, Spanier and Schultz have all said nothing, and not been seen in the public eye since the scandal broke. But the media needed more from this story, so they continued to hammer Penn State. Again and again, the stories and editorials were about how Penn State covered this up and put football over what was good and right. Penn State did not do this. Four men in power positions did. Four men who were supposed to protect the name of the university and carry out its mantra of success with honor failed at that mission in spectacular, horrifying and embarrassing fashion. But that was four men. The university is made up of tens of thousands of students, thousands of professors and employees, hundreds of thousands of alumni, and thousands more loyal fans and supporters. Those people are Penn State, and they did not carry out this crime. Yes, many of us were blindly loyal to Paterno and the myth that he was doing things the right way, every time. We are guilty as charged, myself included. But to think for a second that the alumni, players, students and faculty would have supported the decision to cover up Sandusky’s acts is ludicrous. The reason we are all so hurt and embarrassed is that we really did believe in “Success with Honor” Continued on Page 12

It’s Time to Snuff Out Smoking on the Beach To the Editor: Why do we still have smoking on our beaches? I did some research and found that a law to ban smoking on New Jersey beaches was proposed but has been stalled. From there, however, it gets confusing. Some beaches, such as Seaside Park, have imposed their own ban. In fact, upon further research, I found that there is a ban in Ship Bottom, but only for the bay beaches. And apparently Surf City also has some kind of ban, but I could not find the specifics. Not only is this confusing, it’s frustrating because I wish I could understand why we allow smoking on our public beaches at all. I love my weekends at our house in Ship

Bottom, and one of my favorite parts is spending the day at the beach reading a book, soaking up the sun, splashing in the ocean and spending some time relaxing with my husband. It always seems that as soon as we settle in we are surrounded by smokers from every side. When I go to the beach I want to breathe in the lovely scents of fresh air, salty ocean spray and even suntan lotion, but not someone’s cigarette smoke. And the worst part of all is these smokers treat our beach like it’s one big ashtray, flicking ashes and even the butts right in the sand. That is disgusting and inconsiderate. I don’t want to worry about my nephew Continued on Page 8

Nice LBI People Keep Us Sane in the Summer By ANTHONY DiSIPIO e’re beyond the middle of July, one more week until August, and Labor Day lies on the horizon. We can see the light. Sounds like, from reading the letters to the editor, the last few weeks many year-rounders are ready to begin “blink time” activities. That means no more young adults acting like they’re in Seaside Heights and thinking it’s cool to devastate personal property; no more teenagers cursing like those characters on one of those MTV reality shows; no more spandex-clad, helmet-headed bike riders pretending they’re riding the tour on the Boulevard, and ignoring any appearance of traffic rules; and no more caravans of beach paraphernalia crossing the main street anywhere they want led by a sun-dressed matriarch holding up her right arm to stop traffic. In spite of all these summer activities that lead to higher blood pressure, let me tell you

W

that there are many really nice people here on our Island. I mean people that, for no reason, are just pleasant, enjoyable people, who just like to help out. They certainly helped me during a few difficult situations. Sometimes, we all lose sight of those people who do something special in a positive way to make our day. I first encountered some wonderfully nice Island people five years ago when we first moved here, coincidentally, right after my right knee replacement surgery. I was still teaching but because of the surgery was told that I would have an eight- to 12-week recovery period. This ruled out my working my regular summer job of teaching Science in the Summer activities for kids in the libraries. Imagine my surprise when, six weeks into rehab, I was pretty well rehabbed and without a job. I realize many people believe that teachers have “the summer off ” – even my own brother does – but in 35 years, I’ve

had one summer off, and that was because of a back operation. My kids eat all summer and, strangely enough, the bills come in June, July and August, too! I scanned The SandPaper, looking for a summer opportunity. Two captured my interest. One was in retail sales as a cashier at a local establishment. I suppose they weren’t expecting a “senior citizen” to apply for a position of cashier. Little did they know about my “Ac-a-me” experience, which was, modestly speaking, legendary. Apparently, it didn’t matter. “Don’t call us, we’ll call you,” I was told. Next on my list was a position at the Haven Beach Club as – no laughing now – a pool boy. It required general maintenance and cleanliness. Hey, every job I’ve ever had I swept the floor, and I clean a mean bathroom. Ms. Karen, Miss Betty and Mr. P, the hiring committee, never asked how old I was, just when I could start and if I could be there early Continued on Page 14

Epoxy Missiles To the Editor: Let me preface with saying I love our beaches and ocean. It’s been a place where I’ve spent a good chunk of my life. I do my best to keep it clean, safe and enjoyable for all. That being said, on Monday, July 16, we received the first real swell in what seems like a good two months. I spent a few hours in the water that morning and it was incredibly enjoyable, especially after such a long, flat spell that the Atlantic had thrown us. Toward the last quarter of my session, a standup paddleboarder (or sea sweeper, or ocean janitor) paddled out near a group of kids playing in the shorebreak and a dad teaching his boy how to surf. It was not a big deal as long as he wasn’t going to be riding waves because the peak was pretty close to the beach due to the large amount of sand that has shifted up from the Brant Beach dredge project. But he started catching waves and going right in front of that group of kids and the dad with his son. And of course, as it’s nearly impossible to do with a 12-foot tank of a board, he lost control and fell. Except he didn’t have a leash on! And the large epoxy missile headed directly for this group of kids. Thankfully, the dad saw it coming and he warned everyone so they had a chance to dodge it. The SUPer then strolled in, didn’t really seem to apologize for endangering all their lives, and started fumbling with trying to get his vessel back out to the lineup. In the meantime, I got a decent wave and decided to end it on a high note. As I was walking back in through the shorebreak, the SUPer was just getting his bow pointed back out to sea. So I politely said to him, “Hey, I’m really glad you didn’t kill anyone with that board. You really should be wearing a leash if you’re going to be catching waves, especially around groups of people.” This seemed to set him off and he became enraged and told me to “f*** off ” while staring me down. My jaw hit the sand. All I could mutter back was “Well, I guess you don’t care about anyone other than yourself.” Back he went to catching waves in front of that same group of people, without a leash. And according to friends who stayed, he kept losing his board, having it bear down on people, and was cut-

ting off everyone in sight, including little kids. The man was in his 40s, but my point here is not to chastise him or berate him for being a terrible person (which he is). I’m sure there are lots more instances in which a SUP heads toward a group of people every day on Long Beach Island. And getting hit with a 12-foot, 30-plus-pound chunk of epoxy would surely do enough damage to put someone in his or her grave. So I truly think this situation leads to a valid question that must be raised in our beach community: Should standup paddleboards be allowed in lineups, especially when the rider is not wearing a leash? A few years back, Orange County, Calif., classified them as vessels, which means they were not allowed in the surf zone. But in 2011 SUP advocates put major pressure on the Coast Guard, eventually causing the latter to release a statement saying that if these boards are in a surfing or swimming zone they are not considered vessels. This is fine and good, I guess, but what happens when they are being unsafe? They are large missiles that endanger the lives of others. One of those major advocates was the Human Powered Watercraft Association. Upon the favorable ruling, Director Steven Alan Fry had this to say: “The surfing community must self-regulate SUPs in the same manner as is done between short and long board surfers.” If that is the case, I am calling on the surfing community of our area to please help regulate this danger before someone is seriously injured, sues the borough’s lifeguards, Continued on Page 10

Continued from Page 6 Then that fateful day arrives, the big wake-up call. You catch an accidental glimpse of yourself in a store window reflection and quickly turn to see who that zaftig individual is. D(iet)-Day is upon you! I shared these facts of life with my naïve offspring. He scoffed at my advice, telling me he did not plan on getting fat. (Yeah, you caught me; that was my master plan!) He was planning on shaping these newly acquired pounds into finely tuned biceps, triceps and delts. I tried explaining that it wasn’t easy keeping those extra pounds corralled where he wanted them to live. These interlopers like to move around. As he aged, they would act like snowbirds and migrate to more southerly areas. What’s a parent to do? I tried to lead that horse to the water of enlightenment, but he wanted to drink the carbo-shake instead. I can only pray he doesn’t get like that dunderhead on the Planet Fitness commercial: “I pick things up and put them down.” That saying, however, might be the answer to my next diet plan: Pick it up and then PUT IT DOWN!

10 Continued from Page 8 and shuts down a beach for a summer because of lack of funds. That would do wonders for our local economy. Having one of those tanks bearing down on you in the ocean is no joke, and I’ve literally feared for my life seeing a few coming at me. Letting guys such as the one I encountered the other day, or anyone for that matter, endanger the lives of others on the beaches just doesn’t fly. Ryan Brower Cedar Run

Common Goal To the Editor: To those who suffer the brunt of latenight loudness for living so close to the bars, we extend our sympathies. We live several streets away from the noise and are awoken at all hours from the same rowdy behavior, so we can imagine how bad it is up close and personal. In his letter last week, Tom McGonigal (“Police Constrained”) conveyed his frustration with our elected officials as well as the police to resolve the situation. I would like to suggest that the answer may be to reach out to the recently formed “Beach Haven Future” group for help. As they stated, their goal is “being committed to the creation of a healthy and sustainable business community.” I would think that dealing with this problem would be right up their alley (pardon the pun).

To the Editor: I am writing in response to the July 12 article that covered the Beach Haven Commission meeting where my neighbors complained of the “unruly behavior” in Beach Haven. As one of the previous letter writers, and as one of the taxpaying citizens who has been impacted by this issue for long enough, I am astonished by the reporting of the comments made by Commissioner Jim White. Commissioner White is quoted as saying that our letters to this newspaper regarding this ongoing problem have “dragged Beach Haven down.” It is curious and rather offensive that the commissioner feels that citizens who voice concern about the tenor of our town are the ones who are dragging our town down. No, the appalling behavior of the drunken bar patrons are apparently not to blame, but rather the concerned taxpayers are the reason for the tarnishing of Beach Haven’s reputation. Per-

haps this attitude is the reason why year after year, there has been nothing done to address this very real problem. Commissioner White was also quoted as saying, “If you have a problem, come to your elected officials or to the police with specific complaints.” There is obviously a communication breakdown between the commission and the police. For the past several years, the problems of noise and unruly behavior around the bars have been the topic of conversation at weekly Friday Neighborhood Watch meetings conducted by the police department. This is by no means a new problem but one the police have been dealing with for years. I think the letter-writing campaign was extremely warranted, as nothing ever gets done to address this problem, and it’s more than time for our citizens to gather and demand that it finally does. Holly Fazelat Beach Haven

Appropriate Ruling To the Editor: Finally the first fresh breeze of ethics has blown into our nation’s consciousness. The very appropriate ruling by the NCAA with respect to Penn State comes after almost 14 years of a cover-up. I took the very unpopular position last year that Joe Paterno should be removed. This was met with virulent opposition by the ubiquitous Penn State alumni. What offended me the most was the immediate and highly inappropriate rioting by immature and unguided students. This occurred at the hint that the sacred Joe Pa had indeed not responded when confronted by a member of his own staff with serious allegations of child sexual molestation by Jerry Sandusky. I saw no such outrage by these students at what had clearly occurred in the hallowed Lasch building. There was no compassion, but rather support for what was Joe Paterno’s passive-aggressive behavior. Joe Paterno did not take a position against the destructive and horrid rioting. Leadership was absent on all fronts. The only wheels at work were those of the grinding machine, which was the lucrative football program. The Second Mile Charity had woven itself into all aspects of Pennsylvania life, from the board of trustees at Penn State, the initial judge, the governor’s office, the attorney general’s office, summer and local high school teams, campus police, golf – even the missing district attorney. And this not to mention the imperious manipulation of the lives of disadvantaged families. The idea was that because they were poor, Second Mile somehow knew better. This should be a lesson to all parents to Continued on Page 16

Continued from Page 6 and in Paterno’s supposed “Grand Experiment,” and the men we revered so much made decisions that ran completely in opposition to those ideas. But I cannot stand idly by while the name of Penn State is smashed, over and over. The fact of the matter is this: Since the news of this scandal broke, Penn State (the real Penn State, not the men in charge) has fired Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier. The fans at Penn State football games raised tens of thousands of dollars for child abuse charities. An alumni group, on its own, raised more than $500,000 for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network. The university paid for the Freeh Report and asked that it be made public to everyone at the same time, rather than try to do some sort of public relations damage control.

and owned their responsibility in this matter. It is that very report that the media has used as its ammunition against Penn State. Now the NCAA has handed down historic penalties against the university. This was done using the university-funded Freeh Report, and each of the punishments was agreed to by Penn State. Sixty million dollars in fines will go to abuse charities. There will be a crippling loss of 40-plus scholarships over the next four years, the inability to go to a bowl game over the same time period, and the vacating of 13 years of football wins and records. Entire teams of players are now being punished for the actions of four men, and the university has agreed to this as a form of penance. What more can Penn State do? Please, stop criminalizing Penn State. You can hate Jerry Sandusky. You can attack Paterno, Spanier, Schultz and Curley all you want. You can criticize the local police and the attorney general, now Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, for not doing more. You can criticize the culture of Penn State football fans, myself included. But the name of Penn State has suffered enough. Penn State is a place that has done enormous good in the world for more than 150 years. It has educated hundreds of thousands, spawned scientific discoveries, helped cure diseases, raised tens of millions of dollars for charities, and caused many of us to strive to better ourselves. This legacy cannot and should not be destroyed by the actions of only a few men. Y Steven Derion, Penn State Class of 2001, lives in Manahawkin.

Continued from Page 6 in the morning to clean the pool. No problem; I automatically wake up at 4:45 a.m. So now included on my resume was pool boy. It was one of the best experiences I’d had since I’d moved to the Island, and Miss Betty still sends me the best homemade jelly you ever put on a PB&J sandwich. Just nice people. This last knee replacement had me meeting just a wonderful group of people at Sure Rehabilitation in Barnegat Light. Ms. Laura, Ms. Lee, Chelsea and Jamie along with the Shar-pei gang of Izzy, Babe and Molly took me from walker to cane to no limping in four weeks. And while it was no picnic and I’m probably not the best patient, every PT session was a positive experience: challenging me to get better, respecting my fears of testing new pieces in my leg, giving me confidence that I actually could put weight on my new metal and plastic knee without it breaking, encouraging me to push to the next level of an exercise, and a wonderfully dry touch of humor that is often ignored in the process of healing. Plus there was great music to exercise to on the CD system. Who do you know that has the Mickey Mouse Club opening cheer on CD (Come on, sing with me … “M I C … K E Y …”). And you can’t help but pick up your step on the treadmill when the soundtrack of “Snow White” is playing “Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go.” Thank you, Ms. Laura.

So now included on my resume was pool boy. It was one of the best experiences I’d had since I’d moved to the Island ... There was even that really nice post-op nurse who trusted me to tell him I had “voided my bladder” on the honor system. Why is it that they have you not eat or drink for 12 hours before an operation and then won’t let you leave until you have “voided your bladder”? I drank four of those little cranberry juice cans with very little luck. I bet you have experienced your share of nice people in your travels about this island – yes, even in those “dog days of summer.” Heck, there are large gatherings of these people at St. Francis at “the center”: people, just nice people, trying to help out. It’s all good. Well, maybe except for the exiting traffic pattern after the 5 o’clock mass on Saturday nights. So before you lean on that horn to chase that beach caravan across the street, or roll down that window to yell at that 16-year-old driving that humongous SUV on the wrong side of the road because her mom thought it would be a “good idea to drive down the shore” for the summer, remember all those people you might run into who just make it an easier journey through the summer on the Island. And count off the days until the beginning of another exciting off-season of teardowns. I’m looking forward to the really big changes at the Roberts Avenue Ac-a-me. See you there! Y Anthony DiSipio lives in Beach Haven Park and humorously recalls boomer memories in his book When I’m 64.

ature did its part supplying the stunning gemstones, pearls, gold and platinum. Designer Denny Wong takes over from there, and the works of art win international acclaim. The Honolulu resident who mastered his artisanship in his native Hong Kong makes less than a dozen appearances a year in jewelry stores that carry his pieces, and Island Sun in Beach Haven was one of those on Aug. 2 and 3. If anything can be more exquisite than a top quality Australian boulder opal or a rare golden South Sea pearl, it’s how those wonders look when they’re crafted and combined into a sea life vignette inspired by the natural beauty of Hawaii. Platinum dolphins blinking blue diamond eyes swim under or over the opal “sea” in variations of the Blue Lagoon pendant collection, while 18-karat gold seaweed sculpts around it, ensnaring a larger diamond. Around the top, the matte-finished tropical plumeria flowers that are Denny Wong’s signature lead to the crowning pearl or other gem. To capture their full beauty in words is impossible, but to see the jewelry was nothing less than a festivity at the trunk show at Island Sun. Shop owner David Colman whirred blenderfuls of piña coladas from a tropical buffet table, as customers went gaga at the masterpieces displayed by the contrastingly humble artist. “If you try to describe a piece to somebody over the phone, you can’t explain it,” commented Wong’s mainland sales representative, Benton Berman. He held up a dazzling brooch of polished gemstone fish. “To say it has … one, two, three, four, five different colored fish on a gold backing – you have to visually see the pieces and then it’s, ‘oh my gosh” – you can’t believe it.” The creative process starts with the chunk of opal, or in another case, the most precious of aqua-hued aquamarine. “First I take a look at the stone and then I do the design,” described Wong. Actually, first, he travels the world to places like Tucson, Thailand or China to hand-pick the stones and the pearls – he works only with natural pearls. The most expensive piece in the trunk show that day, $40,000, reflected the quality of the teal-colored, crystal-clear 10.5-karat beryl at its focus. A large pink sapphire carried its weight as well. South Sea pearls were hand picked to match. “I enjoy working with the gemstone colors,” Wong said. “It’s more exciting than diamonds. For the pearls, I love pearls – the different colors and luster.” That love crafted its way to winner of the year in a pearl division of the JCK Magazine Jeweler’s Choice Awards. Wong won top honors in the colored stone jewelry, $5,000-$10,000 range division, the past two years. The first JCK Jewelers Choice Awards drew 430 entries from manufacturers and designers of jewelry and watches – including Fabergé – and 11,052 votes from retailers. The hallmarks of Denny Wong’s pieces are workmanship, detail and quality. A master goldsmith in Hong Kong was one of his mentors, but today he sketches out many of the designs for another goldsmith to collaborate on. “It comes back and forth maybe 20 times,” said Wong. “I have pieces we used over one year to finalize, like this dragon.” Composed of 30-plus pieces, the dragon moves. A claw holds a diamond ball. Berman wishes Wong could make more of them. In three different sizes, they keep selling before Benton can display them all together for show. Some advanced award-winning designs have the added versatility of convertible length or detachable pieces. Sandblasting at high pressure ends with a matte finish on a popular version of the gold plumeria. A highly polished gloss is first done underneath, and it rims the golden edges of the tiny flower. “The plumeria is kind of my signature; people know me from my plumeria. It’s just a lot more work to really polish it up, and then you do a sandblast finish using real fine sand etched onto the piece by 100 psi (pounds per square inch) high pressure. It’s an extra step to do this finish,” outlined Wong. Perfecting the techniques was not a matter of simply going to school. There were other ways of learn-

(Top) This Cinderella Collection pendant assembles green tourmaline, pink sapphire, amethyst, tanzanite and a blue topaz-backed moonstone. ing during a 30-year career span that started in his 20s. “I actually started in manufacturing, in a factory; that’s how I learned my trade. Then I went back to Hong Kong to learn more. Luckily I had a few skilled designer pioneers to teach me different things.” Cindy Johann of Little Egg Harbor Township bought a stunning sunstone ring at the trunk show. “It’s so unique. I have three other pieces of Denny’s that I bought in Hawaii, and another one that I bought here, a starfish ring.” Berman, as the mainland rep, is also one of Wong’s biggest fans. “You look at the product and there is just no downside to it, which is nice to see as a salesman. You can’t complain that the clasp isn’t nice; no, the clasp is very nice. You can’t say, well, the back finish could be nicer; the back is finished as nice as the front. You can’t say, well, this pearl doesn’t match; well, yes it does. And something else – we stand behind our product forever. There are very few individuals that stand behind their product no questions asked.” Asked how he built up his business to the point where he can work with so many precious materials, Wong said, “I started from one person, 30 years ago,” and he joked of how else one would do it: “don’t eat much!” As Wong returns to the Hawaiian sun, Beach Haven’s Island Sun has many of his pieces in a variety of price ranges. A plumeria pendant starts at about $100. In another case, exotic pearls are featured in shades that extend to pink to lavender to peacock green or platinum gray. Creating even more beauty by working with precious pearls, fine-quality diamonds and exquisite gemstones together – in Hawaii – life is good for Denny Wong.

This unhealthy collection of almost incestuous networking is exactly what permitted the outrageous shrugging-off of what was commonly known by many. As far as the statue, it should be a lesson to not erect monuments to living people. Many have feet of clay. Nancy James Long Beach Township

Bad Judgment To the Editor: It is ironic that on the 4th of July, a day dedicated to remembering America’s rejection of over-reaching government, a group of citizens in Surf City tried to hold a childcentered, patriotic event and were met with officials who lacked understanding, patience or awareness of appropriate crowd control. These police ordered immediate compliance followed with threats of arrest. It’s important that our officials are firm in enforcing the law, but is it too much to ask that they take the time to understand the situation before they use force? The fact that the group dispersed so quickly is a tribute to their deep belief in being law-abiding, even though it was unclear as to which law had been broken. Your reporter (“Surf City Council, Revelers Collide at Town Meeting,” 7/18) described a council that did not seek to understand the severe disappointment felt by their constituents. They had no apology to offer for the misunderstandings. An apology is certainly warranted for the way it happened and perhaps for the fact that it happened at all. This is a time when Americans feel a deep disillusion with their institutions, from colleges to government. Officials can’t just hide behind the rules. Good judgment is needed, too.

To the Editor: The other day my husband and I enjoyed breakfast at a local restaurant in Surf City. It is a restaurant we frequent every Sunday during the winter months, and sometimes during the week for lunch or dinner. During the summer months we do not frequent the Island as often because it is so busy. Imagine our surprise when we arrived at our car and found a parking ticket on the windshield. The ticket indicated that we were parked too close to the crosswalk. We looked around, and there were no signs indicating that you could not park where we were parked, no sign saying “no parking here to corner.” The curbs are not painted yellow to indicate “no parking,” as you find in other communities. As we left, there were two people on the

next block, measuring and writing tickets. We understand the need for parking regulations, however, when there is no indication, people are parking blindly – take your chances if you park here! In this economy, wouldn’t it save time, money and manpower if the town put up signs and/or painted the curbs yellow so that local residents as well as vacationers would know not to park too close to the crosswalk? Parking is at a premium in Surf City, and the lack of proper signs is doing a disservice to the local businesses as well as the community. Blanche M. Connolly Manahawkin

Revenue Ruse To the Editor: Re: “Careful Parking” (7/18) – yes, I, too, have received a summons at Tuckerton Lumber. Yes, they have a sign, but it was too late; the police were already there! I complained to management, but what could they do? I said it’s simple – paint a universal sign, a yellow stripe on the curb. They told me this was illegal, which was later confirmed by the clerk’s office because it’s a county road. You have to be kidding! It’s just a ruse to collect revenue. The answer: Stop shopping, keep driving. Rein Emrich Cedar Grove, N.J., and Harvey Cedars

Reconsider Request To the Editor: As a resident and long-time visitor of Barnegat Light, I have admired the memorial benches along our beautiful beaches. They are not only useful but a wonderful tribute to so many of our neighbors and friends. After my husband passed away in December 2010, I sent a letter and attended a borough council meeting requesting the opportunity to purchase a bench in honor of my husband and his father, who died in 2000. My husband and I have owned several homes in Barnegat Light since 1985, and my fatherin-law also owned several homes in Barnegat Light since 1970. I was told by the council that the bench program is no longer available because there are too many benches on each beach. Our family has always used the 28th Street beach. There are only two benches, one of which has no inscription. I asked if I could pay to put an inscription on the blank bench. This was also refused. I would ask that the council reconsider my request to inscribe on the remaining blank bench on 28th Street. Grateful to live in Barnegat Light … Bette Bauer Barnegat Light

Continued from Page 16 and SUVs: When driving on the Boulevard on Long Beach Island, you drive on the right and you pass on the left. Maybe in White Plains, Staten Island, Larchmont, Schenectady and Brooklyn, you can ride in the lefthand lane, all the while tying up traffic. But down here, on our Island, things are a little different. The lefthand lane is not your private cruising lane, where you can text, Twitter or incessantly yap on your “me” phones, “I” phones or whatever other trendy names these self-absorbing, electronic toys are now known by. N.J.S. 39: 4-88 (a) says drive on the right, pass on the left. Learn it. Love it. Labor Day cannot get here fast enough. Praise the Lord and pass the Martinis. James Morgan Beach Haven Terrace

question” (“Question Begs Answer,” 7/25). If Mr. Oakes has, in fact, consulted “experts” in emergency management, I am not so sure they were up to date on post-9/11 procedures. If they were, they surely would have told him to learn who was the incident commander and contact him/her. Instead, he wrote a critical letter to the newspaper. Of course, he got platitudes. No one who was actually at the scene responded, so those who did made assumptions and wrote in generalities. My response was direct. I was not at the scene, I know no one who was at the scene, and I made no judgment about the on-scene management. My response addressed the absolute absurdity of any suggestion by “experts” (also, I assume, not at the scene) that five vehicles would have been more than sufficient for coverage. I used my personal experience at another scene, one much less critical than the one on Route 72, to point out that five vehicles would not have been enough to cover the needs. Mr. Oakes writes that my details showed “more vehicles by a factor of two than needed.” I guess this “factor of two” comment is a fancy, pedantic way of saying “don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up and I insist that the five-vehicle limit is sufficient for any incident.” Michael McGurkin Surf City

Topnotch Responders To the Editor: I want to thank the Surf City Police Department and Surf City First Aid Squad for their help in response to my midnight call last Sunday. My 3-year-old son was having an asthma attack and I was not able to get it under control. Within seconds of dialing 911, I was relieved to open the door for two police officers. They immediately struck up a good rapport with my son and checked on the arrival of the ambulance. The first aid squad was here within minutes and gave my son a little stuffed animal to hold while they assessed the situation. Upon deciding it was best to go to the hospital, everyone was so supportive in helping me gather items for the trip and keeping my son in the best spirits as possible. It was about 2 a.m., but everyone was upbeat and helpful, as if it was just another sunny day in beautiful Surf City. I’m very thankful for everyone who responded and helped my son and I get to the hospital quickly and safely. The Surf City First Aid Squad is made up of volunteers who respond day or night, quickly and professionally. I recently learned that the Surf City Volunteer Fire Co. and EMS are hosting a Beach Blast fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 4 p.m. I encourage everyone to attend, have a “blast” and donate to this topnotch organization.

LBIF Grant Project Will Pursue, Shape A ‘Cultural District’ How Art Nurtures Community, Economy By VICTORIA LASSONDE he Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences has received a $25,000 “Our Town” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to determine a cultural district on Long Beach Island. What that means is the LBIF, in cooperation with local partner organizations, will investigate ways to unify the existing art community and to generate new interest among art makers, purveyors and consumers, with special emphases on community building and economic development. “For an outfit as small as we are, in a community as small as LBI,” it’s a real honor to have been selected, according to LBIF’s Director of Development Marianne Gellman, who wrote the grant with input from Long Beach Township’s Angela Andersen in her capacity as a municipal representative. In the minds of everyone involved at this point, the funding marks the start of something big for the local arts community. “It’s a game changer,” Gellman said. For this competitive NEA funding, 317 applications were submitted across the country, and 80 awards were given in 44 different states, totaling $5 million. The LBIF is one of only two awardees in New Jersey. The other is the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway. The awards were announced July 12. The funding is a one-to-one matching grant. The NEA issued its request for proposals at the start of the year, with an application deadline of March 1. So the LBIF acted fast to contact Long Beach Township and get the town on board as a municipal partner, Gellman said. Andersen said she first discovered the cultural district concept at last year’s League of Municipalities con-

T

ference in Atlantic City, in a seminar called “Creative Placemaking,” based on the principle that art can invigorate and refresh public and private spaces. Together, she and Gellman developed the content, modeling concepts from Woodbridge Township and Cape May City, municipalities that already have cultural districts in place. “We didn’t envision, initially, a planning grant” as opposed to an implementation grant, Gellman explained. But that’s how it all came together. “It was very process-intensive,” she said, to coordinate all the people involved and to distill abstract concepts down to concrete terms. In all, the project includes nine local partner organizations: the LBIF, the township government, the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, Surflight Theatre and the Long Beach Island Business Alliance; hopefully the five other Island towns will also be interested in participating, “so it’s contiguous all down the Island,” Gellman said. “We’re hoping for a total of nine or more,” she said. The grant creates a clear picture and provides a written document to serve as a road map and a timeline, Gellman explained. The vision is one with the arts at its center and all the different art forms and entities interconnected. The arts include the disciplines of visual, performing and literary art and music. “Right now there is arts activity (on the Island), but it’s kind of like everybody does their own thing,” she said. The f irst stage of the project would be to convene town meetings, interviews, focus groups and forums in order to gather information about what the community wants and, from that, shape an action plan for the implementation stage.

“I’d gotten the paperwork that I received these citations, but there was some kind of Army mistake and I never actually received the medals,” said Gutbrod, 90, of Surf City. “We owe our World War II veterans a debt that can never be repaid,” Freeholder Deputy Director John C.

Cash Found Gutbrod Lauded In Surf City For WWII Action A Continued from Page 20 sents all of our soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen who will forever be renowned as the Greatest Generation.” Assigned to the 507th Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division, Gutbrod was among the first American soldiers to land in occupied France on the early morning hours of D-Day, June 6, 1944. As a county press release explains, “These vanguard paratroopers fought a series of skirmishes overnight to protect the landing zones for the thousands of U.S. soldiers that came ashore on the Longest Day. “The 507th suffered numerous casualties and faced some of the toughest enemy units encountered by the allied armies.” During the Battle of the Bulge months later, Gutbrod encountered a German Panzer approaching his battalion headquarters. He charged the tank and tossed a grenade down an open hatch, exploding the tank’s armament and destroying the vehicle. The force of the explosion threw Gutbrod over a hedgerow and into a nearby field. “For this unselfish act of heroism,” the county notes in its release, “Sgt. John Gutbrod was awarded the Bronze Star for valor.” A few days later, he was wounded by a mortar shell and spent two months in a French hospital. At the recent ceremony, Gutbrod was pinned with a Purple Heart as John Dorrity, director of the Ocean County Veterans Service Bureau, read the official citation from the government. “I know John Gutbrod would not use this term to describe himself, but he is under every definition of the word a true American hero,” Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little said during the ceremony. “Today we honor him and all members of the Greatest Generation for their sacrifice and valor in keeping our nation free.” Commander Leonard Mueller, USN, a former executive officer of Naval Lakehurst who is now retired, joined Dorrity in pinning Gutbrod’s citations. Little thanked Dorrity and his staff for working with the military to ensure that Gutbrod received his medals. Also on hand at the ceremony, held at the Ocean County Administration Building in Toms River, were Gutbrod’s son Eric; his granddaughter Lindsay; Surf City Borough Council members Peter Hartney, John Klose and James Russell; and Surf City Volunteer Fire Co. Chief Brian Stasik as well as other members of the fire company. Gutbrod has been a fire company volunteer since 1980 and currently serves as a member of the fire police.

tantalizing flyer is being posted around Surf City asking folks to check their pants pockets; did they happen to lose, oh, between $1,000 and $2,000 in a bank envelope in the Surf City 5 and 10? The Surf City police are peppering the neighborhood with the flyer in the hope that someone will have the magic number and a convincing story. Surf City Police Chief William Collins said the department will be able to match the money with whoever might come forward to claim the cash. “They will know the denominations of the bills, the exact amount and where the bank is. They’ll have to describe it accurately.” Generally, if no one does pass the test sufficiently, by state statute, the person who found the money may lay claim to it 180 days later. That might be a problem in this vacation area where each week, thousands of vacationers come and go. On Saturday, one of those transient customers turned the found envelope over to Surf City 5 and 10 co-owner Donna Schamber, who then turned it over to the Surf City police. Her sister and co-owner Elizabeth Hart said she wasn’t sure if the person who found it left their name. While they were at it, the police department also put out a flyer that a ladies wristwatch was found between Tuckerton Lumber Co. and How You Brewin? way back on May 10 of this year. “It’s an expensive watch, worth about $1,000,” said Collins. “We advertised it back in May, but since we were putting out this flyer and they are both high-ticket items, we decided to publicize it again.” Collins said anyone who has lost an item should always check with the police department where the item may have gone missing. “We like to go the extra distance to get these items back to whoever lost them.” Anyone laying claim to these items may call the Surf City Police Department at 609494-8121. —P.J.

In addition to the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star, Gutbrod was also presented with the Presidential Unit Citation, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with four bronze service stars, the American Campaign Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge, the Parachutist Badge, the Sharpshooter’s Badge, the American Defense Service Medal, the Good Conduct Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. Little announced that the county contacted the French Consulate in New York City and Gutbrod will soon be awarded the Legion of Honor from the French government for his service in liberating the nation from the Nazis. —J.K.-H.

A Sudden Increase In Water-Sewer Bill Outrages Residents

S

tafford Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water and sewer rates have gone up, and people who received a $130 sewer bill and an $85 water bill want answers. Township Administrator James Moran read a letter of explanation that was sent to every township resident, at a cost of $7,000. In 2009, the town implemented a surcharge, based on usage calculations, to address the cost of bonds that were a remnant of the old municipal utilities authority. Today the town continues to struggle to pay down $75 million in bonded indebtedness associated with the installation of water and sewer infrastructure during the last 10 years. The town officials concluded a rate increase would be necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not a choice we made easily,â&#x20AC;? Jack Reynolds Moran said. In fact, he said, it was a VOCAL: Gov. Chris Christie will pay a visit to Bayview two-month-long, daily struggle. But to Park in Brant Beach this Thursday afternoon. bring the water and sewer budget into balance, it was decided that the sewer rate would increase $20 per quarter, or $80 per year, and the water base rate would increase by $25, to be offset by the elimination of billing for the ďŹ rst 14,000 gallons of water used. However, because the changes could ov. Chris Christie will address local ofďŹ cials, not be implemented until the state apresidents and visitors from the Bayview Park proved the municipal budget on June 6, pavilion in Brant Beach at 3 p.m. this Thursresidents have been retroactively billed for the ďŹ rst and second quarters of 2012. day, July 26, Mayor Joseph Mancini announced at last The retroactive component will end in weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Beach Township Board of Commissioners October, when the fourth quarter bills meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I suggest everyone show up and voice your conwill go out. The delay also defeated the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intention to forgive the ďŹ rst cerns,â&#x20AC;? the mayor noted. Mancini said Bayview Park will have room for 14,000 gallons starting in January, so it will take effect starting in July. The about 50 individuals to sit, with space for approxiaverage resident uses 14,000 gallons mately another 100 people to gather and observe. The governor has visited other coastal towns reof water per quarter, Moran said. That cently, including Manasquan, as part of his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Endless person will see a reduction of $18.20 from the $25 base rate for the rest of the Summer of Tax Relief: A Conversation at the Jersey year. He said everyone pays and beneďŹ ts Shoreâ&#x20AC;? tour. As explained in a news release, Christie equally because the base rate increases is calling for bipartisan leadership to bring tax relief are driven by the costs to upkeep and to state residents. Bayview Park is located at 68th Street and Long update infrastructure, in a way that was Beach Boulevard. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;J.K.-H. most palatable to the most people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increase is designed to stabilize the utilitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ nancial foundation,â&#x20AC;? he said, and is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the only responsible choice we from other sources.â&#x20AC;? He added that Staffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rates are still below could make at this point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going forward,â&#x20AC;? he continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;any and those of many other Ocean County communities, all increases will be based on an annual rate while maintaining the highest level of service, as analysis of the needs of the system, combined evidenced by the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Groundwater Guardian Continued on Page 60 with a conservative view of anticipated revenue

Nuclear Plant Declared Safe After Outage

I

t may seem strange that a power plant can lose power, but that’s exactly what happened to the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station in Forked River early Monday morning. Electrical service coming into the nuclear plant was disrupted, leading to an “Unusual Event” being declared at 3:41 a.m. Workers at the plant took the reactor offline and notified all appropriate federal, state and local officials. Two diesel-powered generators were used to supply electrical power to such key plant components as the cooling system. The Unusual Event status, which is the lowest of the four Nuclear Regulatory Commission emergency classifications, was terminated at 5:38 a.m. after Jersey Central Power & Light crews restored electrical service to the plant. The Oyster Creek facility produces about 636 net megawatts of electricity when operating at full power, enough to supply 600,000 typical homes, approximately the number of houses in all of Ocean and Monmouth counties combined. It also employs plant workers who, through their payrolls, annually contribute some $96 million to New Jersey’s economy. However, some area residents have become increasingly concerned about the plant because it came on line back in 1969, making it the oldest operating nuclear power plant in the United States. In the middle of the last decade they and anti-nuclear groups fought against the Nuclear Regulatory Commission granting the plant a 20-year extension, allowing it to operate until 2029. They were unsuccessful, but the owner of the plant, Exelon Corp., announced in December 2010 that it would close the plant of its own volition in 2019. —R.M.

Six Years Later, Their Message in a Bottle Reaches a Distant Shore

I

n the summer of 2006, the Mullen family, summer residents in Ship Bottom, were in search of an entertaining family activity. Together the family wrote a letter, addressed to no one in particular, forced it into an old bottle of Grandma’s wine and duct taped it shut. With no expectations, the Mullens gave the bottle to family friends who sent the bottle on its peregrination from Barnegat Inlet. The family had all but forgotten their project until they received a peculiar postcard in the mail recently. Their bottle had reached someone. “We never expected anything to come from it,” explained Kelly,

mother of the Mullen family. “We were curious to see if anything could happen, and always liked the message in a bottle idea.” Receiving the unanticipated but welcomed response in May, the Mullen family’s summer kicked off with a healthy dose of excitement. It was shared with the bottle’s finder, Herbert Pinder. A native of Green Turtle Cay in Abaco, Bahamas, Pinder discovered the bottle in May and wasted no time sending a reply. In his postcard, he described his small island, which has an approximate population of 800 people, 200 cats and 100 dogs. Green Turtle Cay is

Ship Bottom Family’s Low-Tech Missive approximately 180 miles east of Southern Florida and, according to Pinder, has the most wonderful view overlooking the Black Sound. “We could barely believe how far the bottle had traveled!” said an exuberant Mullen. “We were excited to hear from such an exotic place and made a bit of a geography lesson about it.” Learning about Pinder’s home, an island rich with marine life and home

to many animals, was a treat for the Mullen girls – Colleen, Erin and Genna. Although they cannot remember specifically what the message said, they are sure that they mentioned their zealous penchant for animals; the Mullens are the proud owners of two rescue dogs. In addition to their love for animals, the Mullens have a strong environmental awareness. “We had a small lapse with the bottle,” admitted Mullen with a chuckle. “However, my girls and I care deeply about the environment and enjoy helping out in any way we can.” All formerly or currently Girl

Scouts, the Mullen girls participate in environmental clean-ups in Burlington Township and beach clean-ups here on Long Beach Island. This summer the family has already shown its passion for local life with clean-ups in Barnegat Light and Viking Village. And so, six years after their on-awhim family fun, the Mullen family has a story to tell for summers to come. Much like Benjamin Franklin discovering ocean currents and trade routes with bottled messages, the Mullens found a new place in Green Turtle Cay and a new friend in Herbert Pinder. — Ryan Geary

Community Grieves Loss of LBT K-9 Diesel

G

asps were audible in the audience as Long Beach Township Mayor Joseph Mancini somberly announced at last Friday’s Board of Commissioners meeting the recent passing of the police department’s K-9 Diesel. In person and on online social media, K-9 Officer Mike Thompson received an outpouring of support in the wake of his partner’s death, as the community within and beyond the township mourned one the LBTPD’s bravest and most beloved members. “He touched so many people’s lives,” Thompson said Friday of the 10-year-old German shepherd, who joined the force eight years ago. “He was a very loved dog.” Diesel was euthanized early last week after veterinarians found that a mass in his spleen ruptured, causing internal bleeding. The mass was suspected to be cancerous, and the cancer likely spread through his body. His chance of surviving surgery was slim, Thompson explained. “We started that day as a regular day,” said Thompson, but when Diesel walked rather than ran to his police car, “I felt in my heart that something was wrong. “It crushed me,” he said, when Diesel passed in his arms, but what Thompson emphasized was the memory and legacy of his occupational better half, his friend and family member. “We were a great team. I’m so thankful and grateful for him. It was an honor to be his partner.” Diesel was expected to retire this fall, though Thompson wasn’t sure he’d fully embrace retirement. “He was such a work-driven dog. He always wanted to work. He was doing what he loved,” and did so right up to the day he died. “I think he was exceptional,” Chief Michael Bradley remarked. He noted Diesel’s long tenure of service with the department, protecting and helping officers, tracking lost children and impaired adults, sniffing out drugs. Thompson and his canine partner received their patrol dog and narcotic certification training in July 2004. As the LBTPD website explains, Diesel was trained in “criminal apprehension, tracking and locating missing or endangered persons, narcotics detection, and article or evidence searches.” During his career in the township, Diesel’s demeanor, his loyalty, intelligence, energy and confidence, easily charmed his fellow police officers and municipal employees. And he was always in the spotlight at any community event, demonstrating obedience, agility, scent work, apprehensions and handler protection – and guaranteeing that no one looked twice at any of the human members of the force. “He was in the driver seat,” said Thompson, “and I was just along for the ride.” “He was definitely special,” he added. “He Continued on Page 56

DETOUR: A metal plate covers the 10-foot-deep hole in the sidewalk on Tuckerton’s Main Street, in front of the historic Grist Mill. State Highway 9 was closed for five hours on Sunday as a precautionary measure so the DOT could assess that the roadway was safe to support travel.

Man Survives Sidewalk Sinkhole As Old Dam Spillway Collapses

S

unday morning, Stewart’s Root beer owner Brad Bennett woke up on his houseboat moored in the marina behind his restaurant along the banks of Tuckerton Creek. He hiked up the short incline to the root beer stand and, looking at the creek as a matter of course, noticed orange gravel pouring into the creek from the spillway there. “I knew there was something wrong, but before I called the police I wanted to see what it was. When I was over by the Grist Mill the sidewalk completely collapsed, and I went down into a sinkhole. The dam there must have broken.” The sinkhole was 3 to 4 feet wide and 10 feet deep. “There was hardly any traffic on the street, but I was wearing my orange Stewart’s shirt and someone saw me go down,” said Bennett.

“He got out of his car and pulled me out while someone else called 911.” Bennett said he sprained his ankle, bruised his ribs and received cuts and scrapes on his legs, arms and one ear. The sinkhole caused police to close Route 9 from Water Street to Great Bay Boulevard from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., causing traffic delays throughout the area. Tim Greeley, a spokesman for the state Department of Transportation, said the DOT closed the road as a precautionary measure but had determined there was no danger to the roadway. He said workers were on site Monday trying to assess what has to be done to repair the original spillway, which runs under the Grist Mill building. The DOT plans to lower the lake 2 feet while repairs are made. “We had a considerable amount of rainfall the week prior to the sinkhole, and whether they will be able to assess if that had any effect or not, I don’t know,” Greeley said. “It’s tough to determine what led to it, but they will be looking at everything.” The Grist Mill, now the Tuckerton Borough construction office and Office of Emergency Management, was not impacted by the sinkhole, and borough workers were on site and open for business on Monday, said Public Works Supervisor Bob Hewitt. The original Grist Mill was built in 1704 by Edward Andrews, said Tuckerton Historical Society trustee Barbara Bolton. “Then it went through a number of owners, including the Shourds (family) until the Pharos bought it, and it became the Tuckerton Water Co. in 1898. I don’t know how many times it was restored – at least a couple of times.” The last time was in the early 1990s through a historic grant under Gov. Christy Whitman. After he was pulled to safety on Sunday, Bennett said he recognized Hewitt’s private pickup in the parking lot at the Wawa and “limped” over to tell him what had happened. “Hewitt did a wonderful job, getting the town alerted,” he said. Asked if he was thinking of suing the state, Bennett said, “Oh, God, no. I’m just so glad to be alive. These things happen.” Bennett talked to a reporter on Monday, while filling lunchtime orders for hot dogs and icy cold root beer. — Pat Johnson patjohnson@thesandpaper.net

Barnegat Planning 9/11 Memorial at Town Hall WTC Beam From North Tower Is Centerpiece

A

t this time last year, the Barnegat Township School District received a steel beam that was part of the North Tower of the World Trade Center, which collapsed on Sept. 11, 2001. The 9-foot-long, 900-pound object came to town through the efforts of Charles Giles, a Barnegat resident and 9/11 first responder. Dedicated last September, it is located in a landscaped area near the entrance to the football ďŹ eld. Giles has now brought in another beam, which will be part of a 9/11 memorial to be erected near the entrance to township hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What makes this one special is that it is the only support beam that was still standing after the car bombing of the World Trade Center North Tower in 1993,â&#x20AC;? he said. Giles said the beam is 11½ feet long and weighs 13,000 pounds.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one is made both of steel and concrete,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is three times as wide as the one the school district has. It has green and red paint and says that it is on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parking level. While I was pleased to have one donated to the school, that beam is located on a hill and it might not be easy for everybody to get access to. This one will be clearly visible outside town hall.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Al Cirulli said that early next month, construction is expected to start on a backdrop wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will have lights so that people would be able to see it during the day or night,â&#x20AC;? said Cirulli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When done, this is going to be a very beautiful memorial. It will say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;never forgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because we can never forget what happened to our nation on that day.â&#x20AC;? The mayor said he is looking to have it dedicated on Sept. 11, which

NEVER FORGET: The new beam from the World Trade Center attack will be considerably larger than the one (above) given to the school district last year.

Beach Haven Library Museum Open on Wednesday Afternoons

I

f you’re interested in checking out Beach Haven history, the one-room museum on the second floor of the Beach Haven Public Library is open on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 3 or by special request. Established f ive years ago by borough historian Jeanette Lloyd, the museum contains photos, hotel ledgers, diaries, deeds, newspaper clippings, whale bones and other artifacts from Beach Haven’s earliest years. “Our ledgers are from the Engleside Hotel, the Parry House and Thomas Bond’s Long Beach House,” said Lloyd. “These books date back to the 19th century.” Lloyd said the museum is “still a work in progress,” and her latest project is putting together genealogies of Beach Haven’s first 44 families. “I have 18 families completed,” she said. “These include the Shourds, Joorman, Broome, Marshall, Hart, Sprague, Parker and Cramer families.” She said her long-term goal is to put all the museum data and exhibits online. “The main purpose of this museum is a place for people who want to research history about Beach Haven,” said Lloyd, who chairs the borough’s Historic Preservation Advisory Committee. “We have the LBI Historical Museum in town, but they’re involved with the

history of the whole Island, and there is also the Maritime Museum, which focuses on our maritime history. What we have here strictly deals with Beach Haven. We’re really fortunate that in Beach Haven, we have three museums. We hope that many people take advantage of the library museum and that it can grow into something very special.” Anna Serbek, library assistant, said the museum “is a local hidden treasure.” “One steps down into a well-furnished museum with high, beamed ceilings and a huge stone fireplace,” she said. “Our goal is to house all the important documents and articles that record our borough’s history from 1874.” Local history is close to home for Serbek, as she is related to the Grant and Crane families, which Lloyd said are among the original families in town. “My two great-grandfathers, Enoch Grant and Thomas Crane, both worked for Thomas Bond at the Long Beach House,” Serbek said. “I’m very pleased that we have Anna helping us with the museum,” said Lloyd. “She is someone who lives Beach Haven history.” Serbek said anyone who has any documents or artifacts may call the library at 609-492-7081. She said information is also available on the library’s new website, beachhavenlibrary.org. — Eric Englund

Squad 85 Ducks Tuckerton’s Invite To Explain Delay

A

Founded in 1948 by artist and visionary Boris Blai, (founding Dean of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University) the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences (LBIF) has become Long Beach Island’s premier location for arts and cultural activities for the entire family. LBIF offers an outstanding educational, cultural, and recreational facility that continues to deliver on its founder’s vision by offering classes, workshops, exhibitions, and educational programs to the community. Since its ¿rst season, the LBIF has committed itself to the enhancement of the creative arts and sciences from free art exhibitions with works by internationally known artists to yoga, tennis, family theatre, and summer camp, there’s something for everyone at the LBIF. We invite everyone to experience our expanded facilities and programs. Visit the LBIF’s Main Gallery, a 4,000 square foot exhibit space that hosts artwork in all media and the many scienti¿c demonstrations including a coastal rain garden, terrapin hatchery, wetland walk, and solar demonstration. The LBIF is a pubic nonpro¿t organization that has grown into a year-round facility. Details about the many activities or joining can be found at www.lbifoundation.org, or stop by at 120 Long Beach Blvd. in Loveladies, or give us a call at 609.494.1241.

fter calling a special meeting, Tuckerton officials seem no closer to resolving an issue over a delayed ambulance response on July 5 by Great Bay Regional EMS, also known as Squad 85. After a resolution to temporarily drop Great Bay as the town’s designated ambulance corps was suggested and then withdrawn at the July 16 municipal meeting, a special public meeting was held on Friday, July 20 to discuss the matter with all the stakeholders. However representatives from Squad 85 did not show up. Mayor Buck Evans, who is also Tuckerton’s trustee for the ambulance squad, said Captain Al Gentless was still at work and trustee chairman Rich Bethea was visiting with his daughter. The meeting began inauspiciously, as Councilman Tony Foglia, also the chair of the borough’s law and public safety committee, called a point of order. Foglia said that according to statute, because Evans is the designated trustee of Squad 85, he should have to recuse himself from the discussion. It was Foglia’s opinion that he would have a conflict of interest. Borough Attorney Terry Brady said he read the statutes to mean Evans merely could not cast a vote on any resolutions pertaining to the issue. On July 5, victims of a two-car motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Marine and Clay streets, were pulled from their vehicles after the Tuckerton Fire Department used their Jaws of Life extrication apparatus. But the injured waited on stretchers 27 minutes before an ambulance arrived. Squad 85 had reported to county dispatch that they had a full crew and would be on the scene, but instead went to another call in Eagleswood Township that came in moments later. The backup, paid ambulance service Quality First Aid, was dispatched to the Tuckerton accident, and transported one person to the hospital. Tuckerton Police Chief Michael Caputo and Sgt. Chris Anderson said the slow response time in this instance was problematic. Evans then reported on a meeting he and Council President Jim Edwards attended with other Squad 85 trustees the night before, acting as de facto squad representatives. Evans said it was conveyed to him by Gentless that the problem lay with the county dispatch, that they waited too long to send out a backup ambulance. Evans said when he reviewed the GPS information, it appeared to him that Quality was at Stewart's Root Beer and that Squad 85 seeing that, took the call to Eagleswood. “Squad 85 was cleared from the call,” said Evans. “Who cleared them?” asked Foglia. “I find it incredible that people were lying in the street and yet they go to a call where someone was depressed.” “They weren’t playing cherry picking,” said Evans. “I don’t think that’s the case.” “What I have looks bad,” countered Foglia. “It’s best to get the actual audio tape.” Councilman Edwards said it appears, “The county didn’t follow protocol. The third callout didn’t happen for 17 minutes.” “They had a crew attached to our call,” said Foglia. The mayor decided that another roundtable discussion with the Sheriff’s Department was needed, and he suggested Edwards be the representative for this private meeting. Foglia said a representative from his law and public safety committee should also be there. “I want to take myself and you out of this,” said Evans. “If Mrs. Marshall (Councilwoman Sue Marshall, also on the law and public safety committee) wants to go, it’s her call.” “I’m charged with a certain responsibility,” said Foglia.

Birds Are a Swooping Success

Raptors Enrapture Audiences Throughout Library System By RICK MELLERUP

W

hen I first entered the Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library last week to take in a program called “Raptor Rapture,” I saw four large birds roosting on perches. They weren’t moving, even as I approached them. I figured they were stuffed. But as I started talking to the man who would be speaking at the program, Bill Ponder, I suddenly noticed, out of the corner of my eye, one scratching, dog-like, behind her ear. “I thought they were fake,” I admitted to the professional falconer. Ponder, who works as the “Royal Falconer” at Medieval Times in Lyndhurst, proceeded to tell me why the birds – one hawk and three falcons – were so quiet. I knew it was because they were hooded. Darkness quiets some birds, as anybody who has ever put a cover over a parakeet’s cage knows. But I didn’t know why. Turns out, Ponder explained, that hawks and falcons are diurnal, the opposite of nocturnal. Although their eyesight is incredible during the day, it is not good at all at night. That makes them vulnerable to the masters of the night sky, the owls. So, come darkness, they roost and remain quiet until the next morning, the better to avoid owls. It is indeed, as Ponder explained, a bird-eat-bird world. “Lots of falcons will eat other birds. It’s like big fish eating little fishes. Out west, the golden eagles sometimes eat falcons. You have to be careful out there; you spend $2,000, $3,000 on a bird and he ends up being a meal.” Those were just a couple of the fascinating facts I learned about hawks and falcons at the hour-and-15-minute talk given by Ponder to a SRO audience at the library (Sitting Room Only – the small kids were all sitting in a line just 3 feet from Ponder’s raptors.) I knew that a peregrine falcon is the world’s fastest bird, but I – and the moms and older kids in the room – had no idea how fast. They’ve been clocked at 245 mph! That makes the world’s fastest land animal, the cheetah, look as if it had been drenched in molasses before running 70 miles per hour; the 68 mph of the sailfish is impressive but not when compared to a peregrine! “Two hundred forty-five miles per hour,

WAY COOL: (Top) Josephine Coon, 8, loved Bill Ponder’s program on falconry. A hooded Gyrfalcon (above) sits quietly. that’s the straightaway at Indy,” said Ponder. “These birds are instinctual. They pull their wings in as tight as possible when diving, and then they have a last trick: They’ll drop one shoulder and pin the other to their heads, making themselves as thin as possible at the completion of their dive.” Ponder went on to explain the difference between hawks and falcons. “I compare falcons and hawks to military airplanes,” he said. “A hawk is like the World War II plane the P-51 Mustang. A falcon is like an F-16; it is much more aerodynamic. But it is also much more fragile. Falcons are built for speed; hawks are built for strength. Hawks are most closely related to eagles; DNA shows falcons are more closely related Continued on Page 60

Outside Work Risky Behavior In Extreme Heat

T

he second heat wave of 2012 in the middle and eastern parts of the United States has thankfully ended. But would anybody like to make a bet that we’ll get through the rest of July and all of August without another streak of 90-degree-and-over weather? Huh? Want my phone number? Didn’t think so. Heat waves can be deadly. Indeed, the heatrelated fatality numbers are still climbing from the event. It was announced on July 9 that 12 people’s deaths in St. Louis had been officially linked to that heat wave. The figure in Chicago had risen to 18. Six deaths were blamed on the heat wave in Pennsylvania. The fact is that heat waves, more than blizzards, more than hurricanes, more than tornadoes, have been the biggest meteorological killer in U.S. history. According to the National Weather Service, “On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes and hurricanes combined.” Some 700 people in the Chicago area perished because of a 1995 event; more than 1,250 died in this country in a 1980 heat wave. And that’s nothing compared to Europe, where a heat wave in 2003 killed an estimated 50,000 people. The vast majority of the deaths are among the very young and especially the very old. But heat can kill healthy young and middle-aged adults as well if they don’t follow precautions, precautions that the Ocean County Health Continued on Page 60

Town Leaders Aren’t Reconciled With Bank of America Leaving By MARIA SCANDALE he announced closing of the Bank of America branch is a statement that customers in Barnegat Light don’t like – businesses and residents will be losing the only bank in town. The taxpayers association leadership plans to endorse a letter-writing campaign, and the mayor said business owners are angry and upset. Bank of America sent notices that its branches in Barnegat Light as well as Beach Haven are scheduled to close their doors on Oct. 12. “The decision is driven by low foot traffic,” said bank representative T.J. Crawford, speaking with The SandPaper on Tuesday from the New York City office. “It comes down to this: being a responsible business decision based on the costs of running those locations vs. customer use and growth potential.” Mayor Kirk Larson, whose family co-owns Viking Village commercial dock in town, pointed out sizeable use of the bank by the commercial fishing industry, other businesses and residents, especially in the summer.

Suspicious Vehicle Leads To Early-Morning Arrest

A

20 year-old Barnegat Township man was recently arrested on drug charges after his vehicle was spotted in the early morning hours in the Russell Brackman Middle School parking lot. Lt. Keith Germain said Patrolman Robert Armstrong approached Scott Conklin’s vehicle shortly after 2:30 a.m. July 14. Germain said the officer and his K-9 partner, Bullet, searched the car and found marijuana concealed within the vehicle. Conklin was charged with possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on his own recognizance. —E.E.

“At Viking Village, 42 million pounds of seafood came out of there in the last year. It’s not just Viking Village, it’s all the boats unloading there making deposits. We’re trying to get a camp to write some letters to the executive office to see if we can’t change their mind or have them give us a seasonal office.” “There was a lot of concern voiced at our taxpayer meeting” about the “inconvenience,” said Barnegat Light Taxpayers Association President Steve Rabbitt on Tuesday. Association trustees are formulating an e-mail to the group’s members that will include addresses to which taxpayers can write letters to banking officials, he said. Meanwhile, as more and more people bank online, other branch closures are planned nationwide, according to Crawford. “Customers continue to do more of their routine transactions outside of the banking center – online or through mobile phones,” he said. “In the case of Beach Haven, we do plan on installing a full-service ATM in town,” Crawford said. Accountholders got the word of the closures back in June, bank representatives said. However, thoughts of the future impact were still trickling down to vacationers and others this past week. “After careful consideration, we have decided to close our Beach Haven and Barnegat Light banking centers on Oct. 12,” Crawford summarized. “Customer letters were mailed in late June to give ample time to become familiar with our nearest locations. For both, that would be Ship Bottom, which is approximately 6 miles away from Beach Haven and 8 miles away from Barnegat Light.” When asked how many people use the bank branches, he said that is “not a figure that we provide.” “Ship Bottom is not going to be able to handle the whole entire Island,” Larson said. “For businesses and depositors, it’s a shame.” Larson referred to discussion at the recent taxpayers association meeting.

A Turn in the Road The Wrong Meaning of ‘Thoroughfare’

Ryan Morrill

DEFICIT: The announced closing of the Barnegat Light branch (above) and drastic downsizing in Beach Haven are leading to plans for a letter-writing campaign by taxpayers. Said Rabbitt, “The taxpayers association is formulating an e-mail to go out to our 542 members reminding them of the action that Bank of America is taking. Included on the e-mail and on the association web site are some draft letters should taxpayers want to voice their concern to bank officials.” The sample letters are being “circulated to trustees for their review and comments,” he said, “and we hope to have the e-mail addresses and letters on the website (barnegatlighttaxpayer. org) in the next week or so. “Losing their only bank that has been their landmark for years is an inconvenience to not only the residents, but the businesses in Barnegat Light,” Rabbitt continued. “It’s not just a seasonal bank; more and more residents are residing there year ’round. They’re very upset to have to drive to Ship Bottom or some other location.” Both bank properties are owned by the bank “and will be marketed,” Crawford said. “They’re going to market those properties in this economy?” Larson replied to that. “I’m just beside myself trying to figure out what we could do,” the mayor said. “We had talked about maybe giving over the other side of the old Borough Hall next to the post office so that maybe a bank would come in there, but I don’t know what kind of space requirements they would have. “October to April, we could live with it, maybe shorter hours or something, but to do it in the summertime, too – no way.” mariascandale@thesandpaper.net

Barnegat Seeks Program to Cut Electric Bills

B

arnegat Township is looking to participate in program that could cut the town’s and residents’ electric bills. Officials are exploring the possibility of entering into an energy aggregation partnership with Colonial Power Group, a Massachussettsbased company that serves between 50 and 70 companies in New England. Mark Cappadonna, a Colonial Power group partner, said the township and residents could save an average of $50,000 per month. He said this would be accomplished by hiring a third party supplier of electricity, giving the town and consumers another option besides Jersey Central Power and Light. “But it is not mandatory,” he said. “There would be a mailing 30 days before the switch to the new supplier, so people could opt out and stay with their current provider. But having prospective suppliers can drive the rates down because you have more of a competitive marketplace.” Cappadonna said JCP&L would still be responsible for handling the distribution of power, maintenance and service of equipment, meter readings and billing. “Customers would see a reduction in the supply charges section of the bill,” he said. “By law, those charges would have to be lower than JCP&L’s. The aggregation does not affect the gas bill.” Brian Murphy, also a Colonial Power partner, said that if Barnegat Township adopts an ordinance to authorize the move, his company would oversee the program at no cost to the municipality.. “We would handle all the administrative work and put the job out to bid,” he said. “We would also be working as a consultant. Our job would be to go out and get the best price possible for Barnegat. The town is basically outsourcing this to us, relieving them of any extra responsibilities.” Murphy said not all states permit energy aggregation programs. “We can’t go into New York because it is not allowed,” he said. “It has been on the books in New Jersey since 2003. We recently started reaching out to New Jersey because we could see that there should be ways for people to save on the electrical bill and have a more competitive market. Hopefully, towns will sign on and be a part of this.” Mayor Al Cirulli said he would seek community input before such an ordinance is drawn up and adopted. Future presentations could be made at township committee meetings. “I feel we should have presentations made in our adult communities,” he said. “We want to provide as much information as possible before any decision is made. But so far, this looks like something that could be very good for the townContinued on Page 58

hree local residents, two of whom are deceased, will be inducted into the Barnegat Bay Sailing Hall of Fame this year. Paul Coward of Brant Beach Yacht Club and Doug and Peg Galloway (posthumously) of Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club will be honored at an induction ceremony in October at Ocean County College. This is the ďŹ fth class to be installed in the Sailing Hall of Fame, the committee for which selects individuals with ties to Barnegat Bay who have achieved excellence in and/or contributed to the sport of sailing in some extraordinary manner, as OCC President Jon H. Larson explained in his report to the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Trustees at a meeting this past Monday. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inductees also include Britton Chance Jr. of Mantoloking Yacht Club, Charles J. Horter of Island Heights Yacht Club, John P. Harkrader of Bay Head and Manasquan River yacht clubs, John J. Applegate of Lavalette Yacht Club, Mark Schleckser of Shore Acres and Lavallette yacht clubs, and Roger Brown of Metedeconk River Yacht Club. The Galloways, as OCC Manager of Promotional Programming RoseAnn Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Urso explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;were an inspiration to three generations of Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club sailors. They were early pioneers in the very competitive E Scow class, having won three Eastern Championships (1941, 1948, 1952) and 18 consecutive Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club championships. All the while, they encouraged others (notably younger sailors) to take up the sport.â&#x20AC;? After retiring from racing in 1968, the Galloways shifted to race committee work and took on other supervisory positions at Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club. The couple served on committees to host several national championships, including the 1970 Mallory Cup Finals, the 1973 Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Day Championship Finals, and the 1975 E Scow Nationals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Along with their sterling racing records and leadership roles, the Galloways were equally well known for their extensive cruising up and down the East Coast aboard their beloved 39-foot sloop Adhara.â&#x20AC;? Coward, meanwhile, was a four-time national champion in the Mariner Class, and has also raced successfully in Lasers, SunďŹ sh and other dingy classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has since gone on to excel in the area of race management, having served as principal race ofďŹ cer for many world and national championship events hosted by his home

Mayor Joseph Mancini announced at last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Commissioners meeting that the LBTPD recently received a $16,000 grant for pedestrian safety, which he said comprises â&#x20AC;&#x153;cell phone usage, speeding, bicycle safety and trafďŹ c signals.â&#x20AC;? The department also obtained $4,000 in funding towards its bulletproof vest program, and $1,600 to fund Cops in Shops, a federally established, state-run program that partners law enforcement with liquor store proprietors to thwart the sale of alcohol to minors, as well as to those of legal age who attempt to purchase it for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These grants assist the department in law enforcement, education and addressing safety concerns,â&#x20AC;? said the mayor. As Mancini also announced during the meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (police) department would like to recognize the efforts of Ptl. Brian Delprioria, the arresting ofďŹ cer of the person responsible for over 30 car burglaries and criminal mischief incidents.â&#x20AC;? Additional information on the case is not yet available, Lt. Anthony Deely said on Monday. Finally, the mayor informed the audience of the passing of the LBTPDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s K-9 Diesel last week (see related story). â&#x20AC;&#x201D;J.K.-H

‘Road Rage’ Halts Cars; Fears Lead to Arrests In Theater in Stafford

O

nlookers at first thought what they were seeing was a socalled Chinese fire drill when drivers were getting out of a vehicle and off of a motorcycle at a red light on Route 72 Saturday evening. It quickly became apparent that an altercation was breaking out. The incident at Route 72 and Mill Creek Road at 6:53 p.m. was termed “road rage” after it was investigated by Stafford Township police. An assault charge was filed. It was part of a brisk few days that also saw police responding to a call at the Regal movie theater in reference to a report that someone was concealing something in their waistband before entering the complex in the Kmart plaza. No weapon was found, but drugs were confiscated in the subsequent arrest, police said. Another of the males was arrested on a $12,000 outstanding child support warrant. The call to police came in three days after the tragic shooting rampage in a Colorado movie theater. However, police made it clear that in this case, “none of the arrestees were in possession of any weapons.” On Monday, July 23 at about 6:30 p.m., Stafford Township police responded to the theater “in reference to a report of two suspicious males concealing an unknown item(s) into the waistband of their pants prior to entering the theater complex,” said the police report. “An immediate check of the exterior portion of the parking

Friends of the Library Donate Piano to Staff

P

eople entering the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library could soon be greeted by the sounds of soft piano music. The Friends of the Library recently donated a spinet piano for the downstairs meeting room. Nora DeRosa, Friends president, said the piano had been given by a resident, Clare Vrana. “She was moving to a smaller place out of the area and didn’t have room for the piano,” said DeRosa. “For the past few months, we posted a notice in the branch that we were looking for a donation of a piano, so she responded after noticing it. We’re very grateful.” DeRosa said the instrument would need to be tuned. “Once that gets done, we can use it for musical programs,” she said. “It can also be used for background music. This would be great during the holidays, when someone could play Christmas songs. People could hear it in the hallway and on the main floor, too. It creates a nice, relaxing atmosphere.” Chris Rodas, branch manager, thanked the group for the donation. “We’re certainly happy with anything that can help our programming,” she said. “We could offer more musicoriented events. Hopefully, it will be up and running soon.” —E.E.

area resulted in negative findings, to which officers continued their check inside the theater. “Off icers checking inside the theater located the described males and subsequently arrested George Glonek, 28, of Little Egg Harbor, for an outstanding $12,000 child support warrant and a traffic warrant for failing to appear on a driving while intoxicated charge. “Continued investigation revealed that the second male, Joshua Blake, 25, of Barnegat Township, and two female associates, Ms. Jessica Rasoilo, 23, of Bayville and Ms. Dana Roeller, 21, of Barnegat Township, were found to be in possession of CDS, namely heroin, marijuana, Xanax and oxycodone.” The police report adds that Roeller had an outstanding warrant stemming from Barnegat Township. Glonek was taken to the Ocean County Jail in lieu of bail. The other arrestees were released pending a future court appearance in Stafford Township Municipal Court. The arresting officers were Patrolmen Michael Morrin, Ken Schiattarella and Bob Mullin. The police report of the road rage incident says it “turned physical when Timothy W. Weaver, 28, of Burlington Township dismounted his motorcycle while the traffic signal was red and approached the other driver’s vehicle.” Then “the driver exited his vehicle and a verbal argument ensued.” The report said that witnesses stated that Weaver “struck the other driver in the head with his helmet.” Witnesses, including this reporter, then saw others get involved shoving and throwing punches, and soon the traffic light changed to green and the incident was holding up traffic. By that time, witnesses were calling 911 and police were on their way. The police report continues: “A brief physical altercation began between several involved parties until the traffic signal turned green and Weaver and his two acquaintances on motorcycles left the scene. They were quickly located by patrol units at the Gulf gas station located on Route 72. “All involved parties responded to Stafford Township Police headquarters to submit statements. Weaver was charged with simple assault and was released with a required court appearance.” Patrolman Russ Griffin was the arresting officer. Among other Stafford Township Police reports was a Saturday collision between a motor vehicle and a bicyclist at Route 9 and Beach Avenue. Police said Maria Morro, 50, of Waretown was driving north on Route 9 at 12:54 p.m. when the bicyclist, Glenn Deixler, 54, of Manahawkin, “entered her lane resulting in a collision.” Deixler sustained minor abrasions and was tended to by Stafford EMS. He was not wearing a helmet, police said. He refused to be taken to a medical facility. “Deixler was found to be the cause of the collision by failing to yield to traffic,” the police report said. Morro did not suffer injuries from the collision, police said. —M.S.

Ryan Morrill

ISLAND NATIVE: Randy Skimmons (above) learned fish business proprietorship from his father and was deeply interested in it by age 10. Sixteen years ago, he opened his own shop at 1103 North Long Beach Blvd., Surf City.

Fresh Fish and Banter Come in Daily At Blue Claw Seafood Market

A Maria Scandale

GOOD DOG: Dr. John Cali is greeted at the end of the day by his own border collie, Zoe. The response van is well stocked with supplies.

LBI Veterinary Service Brings Mobile Clinic To Comfort of Home By MARIA SCANDALE ogs’ eager curiosity gets them into everything. Here at the beach, all sorts of pitfalls can catch a pup, from encounters with other dogs on vacation, to those tempting smelly things that have fishhooks attached. Good thing there’s a mobile veterinary service now, a pet doctor who makes house calls. LBI Veterinary Service is new to Long Beach Island this summer, operated by Dr. John Cali, a veterinarian who has practiced for years in Morris County and has also worked with animal shelters there. His associate in providing high-quality care for dogs and cats is Dr. Natalie Aronow. Advertising “veterinary care in your home seven days a week,” the equipped van is the only such service on LBI, although the concept of a mobile veterinarian is centuries old across the country. Time is of the essence in an incident, plus there’s much to be said about treating distressed pets in the comfort of the home.

D

“People who have a problem with their pet have to take them in the car, in the traffic, across the bridge,” Cali noted, “whereas, we’re mobile, and not only that, we’re the only veterinary service on the island.” The calls come in for a range of reasons. “Especially this time of year we see a lot of ear problems,” Cali said. “Dogs are in the water a lot. It’s hot and they get ear infections. That’s probably the number one problem we see. Also, heat exhaustion is a problem with animals. “We see a lot of lameness. Dogs are limping because they cut their toe, they step on something, they strain a ligament,” he added. “They can step on a fish hook or get a fish hook in their lip. And we see a lot of intestinal problems,” he said. It’s not just what they inadvertently get into – other patients are animals with ongoing medical conditions. Services include wellness exams, vaccines, blood monitoring for both routine and chronic illness, ultrasound, heart disease, diabetes, aller-

t 10 years old he was notorious. Motoring along in the bay in a tiny skiff, Randy Skimmons ventured beyond his parents’ limits, got caught skippering along under the Manahawkin Bay Bridge and landed on the front page of The SandPaper for doing so. The son of fish business proprietor Ed Skimmons, Randy was on his way to being inexorably linked to the sea and its products. Early on, he pushed crabs in a wheelbarrow. At 14 he was delivering buckets of clams to detectives in Philadelphia. After working for his father and in a brief reversal of roles, he eventually opened his own shop 16 years ago. Blue Claw Seafood Market is one of a handful of fish stores in a one-mile area around Surf City. But the 700 square feet of counters, refrigerators and tanks also harbors constant commentary from regular and weekly visitors. “I remember when your father

and you sold the produce,” remarked one customer. “That was 30 years ago,” another said with a smile. At one point back then, salmon was 47 cents a pound. Now it’s $18, said Skimmons, who is 47. Still another customer quipped that she had rented vacation homes, and now “I own a house of my own but still come here for my fish.” A male customer guessed the weight of a certain portion of salmon to be 7 pounds. Another customer, a wise-looking woman, estimated 3 pounds. It is 3½. “You women always scare me,” said the man. “I never get it right,” he added. Regardless of how much is prepared, fresh fish at the shore is always gobbled up by family and guests. “You never have to put food away,” said the man. “This better be good,” demanded a determined lady of a cut of ahi tuna

as she paid for it. Day in and day out, the little market at 1103 Long Beach Blvd. buzzes with activity as the makings of seafood suppers go out the door. The only non-seafood product at Blue Claw is the key lime pie. Freshly made from her own secret recipe, it’s the daily contribution of Randy’s wife, Debbie. Delivered mid-morning accompanied by daughters Hannah, 11, and Haley, 8, the pies have become another Blue Claw standout. Skimmons’ dedication goes deep. He was born on Long Beach Island, grew up here and lives here still. He’s never moved away. When he was in fifth grade, which is where his elder daughter is now, there were 100 kids in the class. Now there are just 35. In the summer, though, when school is out and the Island full, people thrive on fresh fish and the banter that goes on at the fish market. — Suzanne Poor

gies, flea and tick protection, bandage changes, and behavior counseling. The service treats diarrhea/vomiting, weight problems, skin, ear and eye problems and other common ailments, the business pamphlet goes on to list. Many illnesses and mishaps can be treated by the service. In severe cases of illness or emergency, LBI Veterinary Service can help with safe transport to a 24-hour facility. “We cannot do X-rays; however, we do have ultrasound diagnostics that we offer,” Cali said. “It doesn’t take the place of X-rays, but it does a lot of things that X-rays can’t do. We can examine all the organs – liver, kidney, urinary tract, bladder – and we can look at the heart with the ultrasound.” “If it’s a fracture – we had that last week when dogs got into a fight and the leg was broke – we don’t have the equipment for that,” he added. All in all, though, the service is seeing demand on LBI in its first summer as residents and vacationers have

their pets here as part of the family. The Cali family does, too – their border collie, Zoe, plays at the dog parks in Barnegat Light and Beach Haven. “We’ve had a lot of people ask, are we going to be here year ’round. We will be, if there’s a need for it,” said Cali. “When we first started, I thought it would be more people here for the summer, but probably half the people we’re meeting are people who are here year ’round. So I think there will be a need for it year ’round, and if the need is here, we’ll be here.” Being a sort of “mom and pop operation” (his wife Leslie is the receptionist and bookkeeper, and sons Kevin, Michael and Brian are technicians) helps keep fees “very reasonable,” Cali said. Getting involved with local animal shelters is also a passion. LBI Veterinary Service hopes to soon have a stationary facility where neutering can be performed. “There is more of a feral cat population down here than I realized,” Cali said, “and there is a fair amount

of people down here who take the kittens in, nurture them, foster them and try to f ind homes for them, and we’re getting active with those people. We work with shelters at a discounted rate. I work with shelters up where I live – do veterinary work and charge a minimal amount, and help with supplies. Hopefully we’ll be able to do the same down here – work with the shelter animals, with orphaned animals, donate supplies and time.” As Cali was wrapping up the interview for this story, Leslie brought Zoe into the picture to pose for a photo. She obediently opened her mouth to let John check her teeth. Then she gave him a kiss. At some future event, the public might see Zoe putting on a demonstration of agility and obedience.

ow to Live author and retail brand owner Sandy Gingras tried her pen at mystery writing and emerged with an award of worldwide merit at the novice level. She’s as surprised as any suspense reader who just found out “whodunit.” The prestigious Crime Writers Association named Gingras the Debut Dagger Award winner of 2012 for her novel Beached. The award is given to a writer who has not previously published a mystery novel. “The judges praised the fast pace, combined with a great voice and central character, in Sandy’s novel,” the CWA press release states. Gingras lives in Beach Haven with her husband, son, golden retriever and blind cat. Her bio for the CWA Dagger Award web page is characteristically

$1,016 in U.S. dollars. Gingras’ success was announced at the CWA Daggers Awards Ceremony on July 5 in London. She was not able to attend, so she e-mailed a reaction to be read to the assembly: “Like most writers, I’ve had many rejections of my work. After each one, my husband tells me ‘The Story of the Super Soaker’ (which is a very large water pistol kind of thing) to make me feel better. Evidently the Super Soaker inventor had his share of rejections, too. But the Super Soaker guy was like the ‘Little Engine that Could’ of water pistol inventors. He kept on pushing on and believing in himself and trying and trying again to get his invention sold. ... My husband doesn’t like to see me get down on myself, and he thinks (happily) that I’m a good writer, so he repeatedly tells me this story to keep me going. It’s nice of him, but agonizing to listen to. “My first thought after I heard that I’d won the Debut Dagger was ‘Thank goodness, I won’t have to listen to that stupid Super Soaker story again.’ Then I went screaming around the house. “I am so happy to receive this award. It is such a great honor, and I’m so thankful, and I’ll do my very best to live up to it.” The first three chapters of the book are on the website http://www.thecwa.co.uk/daggers/2012/ debut.html The narrative reads in the same insightfully engaging style as her letter of thanks – consider this paragraph: “I got the level as a kind of house warming present from some of the trailer park Continued on Page 56

humble: “She used to be a therapist, but now she owns two retail stores. She designs stationery products and calendars and she writes and illustrates gift books.” Translation: she is owner of the highly successful How To Live stores in Beach Haven and Surf City, and writer/illustrator of 21 gift books, beginning with How to Live on an Island (1998), published by Down The Shore Publishing. And more. Her flair for instructing in the simple enjoyments of life has branched well beyond this coast. She has designed gift bags and gift wrap for Target; written menus for Red Lobster; designed greeting cards and calendars for Sellers Publishing; and been featured in Coastal Living magazine. Gingras earned a B.A. from Hamilton College (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa), an M.A. from Duke University and an M.A. in counseling from Rider University. Gingras told The SandPaper that she is proud to have earned the Debut Dagger Award, “a worldwide contest and a very big deal in the world of writing.” In Beached, as the website’s summary reads, “Lola Polenta’s life is in free fall. Her marriage is on the rocks, she’s getting all the crappy jobs in her new career, her home is sinking into a swamp, and she’s just screwed up her first date with the sexy Detective Johansen. She thinks life can’t get any worse … then she finds a severed arm.” The contest was sponsored by Orion publishing company and carried a monetary award of 700 British pounds, which converts to about

Seafood bisque and Maryland-style crab soup are fresh off the menu at Black Whale Bar and Fish House anytime, but its awardwinning Manhattan clam chowder is found at only one place – Chowderfest. It’s made especially for the contest. Like the Beach Haven restaurant’s name, the Black Whale’s chowder truly swims large amid the competition. In the past three years, the Black Whale entry has floated between first runner-up, second-runnerup and third-runner-up, but always in the winner’s circle. The traditional-style recipe is tweaked a little every time by Kitchen Manager/Chef Rich Schoebel, and he can’t resist adjusting the ingredients again this year. He has “high hopes” of making an even The Black Whale makes a splash bigger splash, but at the same time, feels when it enters the Chowder the competition is a nice thing for everyone.

I Shoulda Turned Away; Selling Instant Jellyfish

A

lert: Make sure to follow this week’s White Marlin Invitational Tournament by going to http://www.thewmit.com/. I’ll be doing write-ups there and live cams will be working. ROADKILL SADNESS – DON’T READ THIS: You might want to cover the eyes of more sensitive type folks wanting to read this segment. Last week, I was trucking along just after dark and saw folks braking and pulling over up ahead. That’s never good, especially when I then saw four or five lifeless white objects lying on the roadway in the opposite lane. I slowed and considered quick-turning down a side road to avoid whatever the ugly mess was up ahead. But that morbid little creature that lurks inside me egged me on, even though I had that sinking feeling things were not going to be pretty. Oh, how true that would be. The objects on the ground were definitely no longer moving, though even at a distance I could see disgusting splatters of red. Yuck – in advance. As I got closer, my fear that an entire litter of lab puppies had fallen on the roadway was mercifully unfulfilled. But it still became a very disturbing scene as I began to sort things out. Barely moving forward, I began homing in on the splotchy messes on the asphalt. Take a deep breath, Jay. As I clicked on my high beams, I first caught sight of a disconsolate young man, exiting his car and slowly walking back toward the gruesome scene. This was brutal. My heart went out to him as I realized he was dejectedly shuffling back toward not one, not two, not three, not four, but five (!) streetsplattered pizzas. Gospel truth: The poor guy, assigned to run out to get the pizzas for either a party or a huge family gathering, had apparently left all of them stacked on the roof of his car – and rabbit-started off, likely to beat out the approaching traffic. The way the road-kill pizzas were spaced, the boxes had seemingly flipped from the roof like paratroopers jumping from a plane. “Go! … Go! … Go! …” Hey, stop your smiling. This wasn’t one bit funny. Kinda. Guarantee that poor dude was in for some grueling stares and glares when he showed up back home with, at best, a few slices of road-rash pizza – with gravel topping. I’m sure I wasn’t the only passer-by who momentarily pondered pulling over to help the guy. It was a lost cause – though, as I inched by, I did stick my head out the window and eyed a couple/few slices without tire tracks across them. I might sorta consider jumping out and taking a couple bites. “Hey, buddy, here’s one that still tastes kinda good. Here’s another one. Look, just brush that stuff off. No, not the sauce part, dude. Here, I’ll do it. Look, good as new. And it’s not half bad. Try a bite.” LIFE IS GOOD, ARTIFICIALLY SPEAKING: Per a viral Internet story, brainiacs at Harvard University and the California Institute of Technology have created life from

not-quite-life. Those scientists, apparently dissatisfied with the number of life forms now on the planet, “bioengineered” what are being called water creatures. They manufactured life by isolating the heart cells of some apparently very generous rats, then added a dollop of silicone (don’t ask), before zapping the celly silicone with an electric spark, using a very specialized piece of equipment. I envisioned the jolt coming from a massive, multi-electrode, power-generating contraption with four-foot-tall rabbit ear rods, hosting blue arcing sparks, jumping brightly from one pole to another – and making a cool crackling sound to boot. Turns out they used a couple wires from a nearby electrical outlet. But life itself came forth from, well, whatever the hell you call a wad of silicone with rat cells all over it. The jellyfish look of the instant life was undeniable. At first, I thought that artificially creating living swimming thingies is surely something we really shouldn’t be messing with – cosmically speaking. However, my entrepreneurial mind slapped aside my saner side. To myself: “Strange undulating manmade life forms; cheaply made and highly packageable. Just add water. Hmmm, Jay, doesn’t that ring a bell?” Sure enough, I flashed back to the cosmically important point in my life – I was 6-something – when I had earned my very first dollar bill. As if by instinctive inclination, I displayed the purchasing acumen and buying cleverness I would marshal throughout my arriving life. I bought two packets of mail-order “Sea Monkeys.” Gospel truth. I literally lost kid-level sleep for a week to 10 days awaiting the arrival of my “monkeys.” I wish my mom were still around to corroborate this, the way I began hoarding bananas and apple slices. When the buggers arrived, I was immediately put off a tad after realizing my monkeys had to be put in water and hatched. Talk about throwing a curve toward my pubescent understanding of how primates reproduce. Upon hatching my monkey eggs (hey, it wasn’t funny for me at the time), all I got were these near-microscopic swimming things. They grew at a rate of about a pinhead a day. Even at that tender age, I began wondering how old I would be before my monkeys were swinging from trees. In a well thought-out effort to spike their growth, I began dropping sizeable pieces of bananas in the water – unbeknownst to my mom. After about a day in the sun, I was convinced I could smell them growing. The water was now too murky to actually see the monkeys. The story turns tragic from there – the commode burial ritual and all – so I’ll skip it to avoid flashing back. Which bring us back to these new tried-andContinued on Page 54

Tell me that the millions of boomers who went for the Sea Monkeys won’t get oddly nostalgic and use their last welfare dollar to buy a couple packets of, uh, Creation Monkeys. How am I not yet a millionaire? NEW LOBSTER LOOKS: Seeing how many lobster aficionados there are around here, I have to mention the rapid increase in lobsters of a different color now being trapped off New England – and edging down toward our deeper waters. Per an Associated Press story out of Maine, lobsters of color – namely orange, blue, green and variants of same – are climbing into commercial lobster traps in numbers never before seen. I can’t be the first to suggest this surge in freaky-hued lobster is fully consistent with the current surge of acidity in the ocean. It could also come down to the chemicals in the water, as the marine creatures build their exoskeletons, i.e., shells. One thing that immediately responds to pH swings is the colorations of plants and animals

relying on something called chitin, a complex celluloid. It’s best to know chitin on a superficial basis, unless you like to dawdle with stuff like: the N-acetylglucosamine units that repeat to form long chains in ß-1,4 linkage. Simpling down even further, pure chitin is clearish. Any coloration comes from either pH impacts or assorted chemicals hanging around as it’s being formed. Sudden changes in water chemistry can surely cause a rainbow of color variations. Oddities in the oceans – be it freaked out lobster shells or crazy showings of certain species – now seem to be surfacing left and right. Unsurprisingly, many folks blame the thermal and chemical conditions now going haywire around the planet. I don’t know if I’ll run with that global haywireness as it might relate to creepy colored lobsters. I’ll simply adhere to that famed adage to never eat the yellow lobster – or is that the yellow snow? Whatever. Closer to an angling angle, there are theories that watery chemical quirks are why some/many stripers display broken lines. One of the more convincing studies I read backtracked those line disconnects to spawn time – in areas of the Chesapeake and Hudson bays, where creepy chemical swings are rampant. SORRY, NO MUNITIONS, MA’AM: I was chatting with the Army Corps and was a tad surprised to hear there were absolutely no deep-sixed munitions found during the entire Brant Beach replenishment project. That sand came from the exact same place as the famed Surf City “arsenal” sand, which was loaded for bear, so to speak. You surely recall that CNN-worthy Surf City incident, during which thousands of antiquated explosive devices were unknowingly pumped ashore with the sand. The devices, some apparently still “live,” had been secretly dumped (deep-sixed) in the ocean by the military, many decades back. By the by, there was no chance of munitions ever reaching the Brant Beach beaches. That possibility was eliminated with the use of finer screening along the pipeline used to power the sand beachward. The odd part, there were literally no munitions found even out at sea, trapped by the screening. Apparently, the sand being pumped from the borrow area is now being taken deeper and deeper down. The source is well below the munitions layer. Interestingly, the sand dollar showing has gone sky high in the pumped in sands of Brant Beach. Those echinoid skeletal remains hale from many hundreds, if not thousands of years back, when warmer waters reigned hereabouts. BLUEBERY BLUES: And when I got there the bushes were bare. I’ve suffered the most suckacious blueberry harvest in the long history of my blueberry bog. Still harboring visions of last summer, when blueberries flowed like wine, I can’t believe I’ve been fully skunked. There is nary a single berry on dozens and dozens of vintage plants. The antioxidant void left by the berrylessness forced me to try something I had only recently read about: blueberry leaf tea. Blueberry leaves also contain important substances that can help protect and promote our physical and mental health. Drinking blueberry leaf tea is a simple and refreshing way to benefit from these natural substances. OK, so maybe I read that from a queue card, but the stuff is good for you. The blueberry leaves contain significant amounts of antioxidants, per the “Journal of Medicinal Food.” The Highbush Blueberry Council (yes, there is one), hales the health benefits of blueberries. They improve memory, prevent some cancers, improve digestion and offer a cardio protective effect. The Lowbush Blueberry Council (imaginary) claims the blueberry bush benefits include greatly enhanced sexual prowess. There are loads of Asians on the Lowbush Council. Personally, I’m now forced to run with the blueberry leaves doing at least something or other. After picking pounds and pounds of leaves, I dried them and tried them as tea. They tasted pretty much like the leaves I used to get in my

back in the day. The thing to remember – and fret over – is the ongoing absence of what might be called the prime breeding stocks, true tiderunners of ten pounds and up. That genetically gifted stock included an amazing spring big-fish fishery, one that has all but died. A similar fall run of larger weakfish has been reduced to a one-and-done squirt of small sparklers. That fall run of weaks (1980s) was so strong, and the fish so sizeable, that the Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Tournament/Classic had a division for them – drawing in numerous weakies over 10 pounds. You will likely not see a single tiderunner this fall. The burst of weakfish we’re seeing now – though admittedly an always-good sign – doesn’t amount to a hill of sea beans if it doesn’t end up adding to the stocks, via a successful spawn. Problematically, many of the “spike” weakfish aren’t sexually mature so they can’t help even if they wanted to – though a few of those little buggers are still willing to give it a go. Small snapper blues are in play around the inlets. These are the little, sub-one-pounders, easy to catch when around – though you need a goodly few to make a meal. Unoccasional stripers are along the beachfront. Jigs work well, late. Y jaymann@thesandpaper.net

mouth as a kid, when rolling around in street gutters in the fall. However, I’m pretty damned sure I could also taste a bunch of radical antioxidants, which fizz a bit. I’ll write about the long-term effects – unless this column just abruptly ends. “It’s gonna be a long recovery, nurse. Worst blueberry leaf overdose I’ve ever handled. Notice the bright blue coloration.” Don’t ya still just love “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”? POLLY WANTS A FISHERMAN: I want to throw in a good word for upcoming Polly’s Dock Fluke Tournament, happening this Saturday. It’s a best-two fluke fish event, which always make it more interesting – and helps display which vessel has what might be called combined catching skills – though one large doormat can still take the $$ cake. For more info, go to http://www.pollysdock. com/tournament.html. And while on that site, take in some of the fun music, which can often be found live at the famed down-home dock. RUNDOWN: I see where grass shrimp sales are perking up. Obviously this has to do with the still-arriving schools of weakfish. I’m guessing folks want to nostalgically fish for sparklers, since you really can’t take home more than a mere sample. I want to put in my annual hype for chum fishing with grassies. Whadda way to learn the bay – inside out, as it were. The variety pack of species drawn to a shrimp chumline is a veritable what’s-what in Barnegat Bay. And the light-tackle action goes from now into October, peaking in September. I’m really anxious to see if the bay is holding that huge showing of kingfish that swept along the beachfront a short while back. As for the spot deluge, those small croakers can actually play spoilers. They can down gallons of grassies and dominate hook action so severely you have to move off to seek a less spotty site. Still, the fun factor of chumming shrimp is an ultimate family fishing affair. The fluking just keeps keeping on. It remains so damn decent that folks aren’t gabbing as much about good days – those days have become the norm. And I don’t think this is solely because of regulations decreasing the minimum size. The keepers have been well over that new minimum. Simply put: Fluke stocks have fully recovered, even by way-back standards. No, that doesn’t mean they’ve returned to Leni Lenape levels, i.e., pre-whiteman times. Bringing them back to that Woodland Period point – without allowing every other species, great and small, to concurrently recover – would be catastrophic. As I oft write, I believe we’re already toying with a destructive eco-imbalance, as we hand-nurse fluke and stripers back, far beyond ecological sensibilities. To me, it’s weird that even scientists and fishery managements folks are scratching their collective butt and wondering why the recovery of other bay-spawned gamefish species – like weakfish, winter flounder, and tog – aren’t improving, despite the strictest of regulations being fully in place. Hint: Any gains from keeping anglers from the fish are being devoured as young-of-year, often before they even make it out of the bay. As for weakfish, it sure seems we’re suddenly up to our chest wader tops in them. It’s a very impressive showing of these midsummer arrivers, especially within Barnegat Bay – a known mecca for spawning sparkers. Per recent studies, spawning weakfish have historically arrived in Barnegat Bay in waves – up to half a dozen separate arrivals. That was

Diesel

Continued from Page 30 was so level-headed.” Diesel was tough and focused when on the job, “but he could turn that off, go into a classroom and let kids hug him.” And plenty of people wanted to hug the furry, 80-pound dog, even though, Thompson laughed, he looked like a wild animal, and he didn’t smell pretty. In return for his service, the community looked out for Diesel. At a June 2009 commission meeting, for example, the Brant Beach Homeowners Association presented the LBTPD with a donation of a K-9 first aid kit. It’s rewarding, said Thompson, to know that Diesel accomplished so much, from his police work to community interaction to his first-place, “Top Dog” finish at the 2007 USPCA Region 15 K-9 competition. “He was phenomenal,” Thompson stated. “Both of them,” Bradley said of Diesel and Thompson, “through their commitment and hard work, created a model K-9 program.” As Bradley pointed out, a handful of dogs and handlers pre-dated Thompson and Diesel on the township force, and at some point, there will be a discussion between Thompson, Bradley, the mayor and commissioners, and staff about training a new K-9. K-9s, said Bradley, benefit a police force because “they can exceed human capability” in regard to protection, speed, fearlessness, tracking, drug identification and community involvement. A trained dog, he added, can search a home for drugs in 15 or 20 minutes and give officers a definitive answer about what is or is not there. They also, of course, bestow unconditional

allegiance on their fellow officers, especially their handler. When Diesel arrived in the township as a youngster after his trip overseas from Europe, he and Thompson bonded immediately, “from the minute I got him.” When the force transitions to another K-9, Thompson will love that dog, too, though he or she will never replace Diesel. “Any dog we have in the future, they’re always going to have Diesel’s standards.” — Juliet Kaszas-Hoch julietkaszas-hoch@thesandpaper.net

When Beached comes out someday, and we’ll venture to say “when” rather than “if,” curious readers can know that her novels are fiction. “My characters are all made-up people and the events are all made up, too,” she told The SandPaper. “I would say that the dog, Dreamer, has some resemblance to my golden retriever Quincy, though ...” Beached is the second in a series, and is still a work in progress. The first book, Swamped, is complete, and her agents are shopping it around to publishers, Gingras said. She knows that “the odds are a lot greater now that I won the Dagger.” — Maria Scandale mariascandale@thesandpaper.net

Watery Dismount Wiping Out Is as Much Fun as SurďŹ ng HIT THE SURF: Paige Freed seems to be perfecting her wipeouts before actually riding a surfboard. Bailing out over her aunt, Cheryl Syminink, she takes ďŹ&#x201A;ight toward her brother, Jack. Hitting the waves has been made easier by water temperatures in the 70s. However, hard south winds have ushered in colder water, often suddenly. This week will see that water warming, then cooling again. Though water temps are usually written on lifeguard stands, the only real way to ďŹ nd out is to dive in.

Henrietta, a 20-year-old herring gull, is accustomed to preferential treatment when hanging at her home base in Ship Bottom. Unfettered by images of a svelte waistline, she will down hot dogs to the point of near ďŹ&#x201A;ightlessness.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So am I,â&#x20AC;? Evans interrupted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care who shows up,â&#x20AC;? said Sgt. Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to be able to turn my (accident) scene over to a qualiďŹ ed EMT.â&#x20AC;? Evans noted that last year out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;approximately 340 calls answered by Squad 85, only 41 were covered by Quality. They have something like an 80 percent majority of answering calls

in the borough.â&#x20AC;? This ďŹ gure was later challenged by Chuck Uhl, Tuckerton Fire Company president. Uhl said it was more like 86 calls made by Quality in 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 20 percent of the calls. Evans also said he was committed to establishing a ďŹ rst responder unit in the ďŹ re company but that he was concerned in how to get them to work together and to get all the legal issues ironed out, such as liability and insurance. After more discussion, Evans decided he, too, would attend the roundtable and that Foglia could join in after all. Chief Caputo was charged with setting up the meeting with the Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department. As of Tuesday, a date had not been set for the interdepartmental meeting. Councilwoman Marshall said she was disappointed that not much had come out of the special meeting that she had requested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting was to discuss a quicker backup. I thought we would have a discussion with a representative of Quality, the ďŹ re company and there is no one from Squad 85. Now, I learn you (Evans) and Edwards had a meeting with them last night. Are you speaking for them? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I defer to the chief. If he recommends a sit down to have a roundtable discussion, than thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his choice. I feel this needed to be out and discussed in public.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Pat Johnson

Raptors Continued from Page 39 to parrots.” Later in the program he had the birds each spread their wings. The difference between the P-51 build of his Harris’s hawk, a bird from the desert Southwest, and the thinner, longer, F-16-like wings of his Gyrfalcon, an Arctic bird that is the largest member of the falcon species, and his two Lanner falcons from Africa was obvious. Smart Birds, Good Hunters Raptors are also very intelligent. Ponder, who is licensed as a falconer by the state of New Jersey, often hunts with his birds. By the way, he needs not only a falconer’s license to hunt, but a regular hunting license as well. “People ask me why (he hunts with them). I tell them, ‘For the privileged position of observer.’” Hawks and falcons hunt anyway; it is what they do, he said, answering critics from the animal “rights” community. He’s just tagging along. “We try to give them the chance to do what they do in nature, to hunt and fly. We’re not really teaching them how to hunt; they’re predators, so they know how to hunt. We’re just teaching them how to hunt with us.” The rewards, he said, are incredible. “We get to see it (the hunt and kill) and see it often,” said Ponder. “I’m sure everybody has a story about when they were fortunate enough to see a Red-tailed hawk (New Jersey’s most populous species of raptor) catch a squirrel on a golf course or a park, but I get to see it all the time.” Plus, there’s supper! “The first time I ate a kill I said to myself, ‘I’m finally there – I’ve gone full circle.’” Different raptors, said Ponder, hunt different prey. Ospreys, for example, go for fish; his Lanner falcons most often focus on other birds. When Ponder takes the field, he’s usually looking for rabbits, ducks and pheasants.

Raptors, said the expert, use their speed and incredible eyesight to good advantage. Falcons often seek out prey from a half mile in the sky! Evolution has equipped them superbly. “Falcons have black marks, like cheetahs, under their eyes,” said Ponder. “It is like the stuff baseball players use, to prevent glare.” Raptors are also smart. Harris’s hawks, he said, actually hunt in pairs or even packs, with one hawk driving the prey – birds, lizards, small mammals and even large bugs – toward a partner. Indeed, because they hunt cooperatively, they can take quite large prey such as jackrabbits (and anybody who has seen only a cottontail has no idea how large jackrabbits can get!). “They hunt in family groups,” said Ponder. “They will work together and use a wolf-like strategy.” His Harris’s hawk, Galen, use to team up with Ponder’s Jack Russell terrier (alas, the dog was killed by the New Jersey’s largest predator – the automobile). “The dog would work the bushes and flush rabbits,” said Ponder. “Galen learned that rabbits come from that little white dog.” (Remember, the hawk would be high overhead.) Don’t feel sorry for Galen – Ponder now has an English pointer. Apprenticeship Must Be Served So, how does one become a falconer? “Federal Fish and Wildlife sets the guidelines, and the states go from there,” said Ponder. “Here in New Jersey, Fish and Wildlife has the responsibility. They give the tests; they come out to your home to inspect your equipment and the facility you’re going to keep a bird in.” The first step toward licensing, said Ponder, is to take a written, multiple-choice, 100-question test and pass it with a grade of at least 80 percent. You’re then a “falconer apprentice.” The state gives you permission to trap and train a Red-tail hawk because they are the most common. You can trap only juveniles, and you are limited to Red-tails for two years. You also get a mentor to train you. After a period of two years,

you can get a general class license, and after five years you can get a master class license, meaning you can now be a mentor. Is falconry expensive? Yes and no. Birds can run a pretty penny. “I just spent $1,500 for a Lannar,” said Ponder. “In general, birds run between $500 up to $10,000.” Equipment, however, isn’t too much of a drag on a budget. You have to have perches, called “furniture.” You have to have leashes, connected to a swivel, so the birds can be put outside every day. Hoods, as already shown, are a necessity. You’ll want a falconer’s bag to go hunting with, basically a game bag for the birds’ kills. You need a bath pan – “they’ll jump into a bath pan like sparrows into your bird bath.” Also necessary are falconer’s gloves, bells (“that way I can hear them when they’re outside and the neighbor’s dog comes into my yard”), a scale (like a boxer, raptors should be kept as near as possible to their “fighting weight” for reasons of both health and performance) and a steady supply of quail. “That’s their staple diet,” said Ponder. “They eat it all, the feathers, bones, all of it. They eat it and then cough up the undigested stuff the next morning.” You’ll also have to invest in a radio microtransmitter. When out hunting, raptors can drift away, and you have to be able to track them down (bells used to be used for the same purpose). They’re recoverable because a falconer will always carry a lure containing a bit of meat. It almost always proves irresistible to a hawk or falcon once it’s trained. “They’re kind of out-of-sight-out-of-mind,” Ponder said, laughing. Training time will be your biggest investment. Ponder has a new falcon, Patience, which is just a few months old, barely away from her parents. He said training starts with “getting acquainted.” “I spend a lot of time with Patience on my gloves. Really, falcon training is very similar to dog training – you go through the same routine

every day and just add a little bit more.” Barring a tragedy, a falconer’s expenditures in both money and time probably won’t go to waste. An audience member asked Ponder how long raptors live. “Basically,” said Ponder, “the bigger they are, the longer they live. Eagles can live up to 60 years. I like to tell people that the number of months they’ll live in the wild (where predators are always lurking) will turn into the number of years they’ll live captive.” Prudence, the Lanner Falcon that will be replaced by Patience in Ponder’s shows (he says Lanners are the best for indoor shows because they don’t need much of a wind current to stay aloft), is now 15. “She’s been the star of the show for almost 13 years,” said Ponder. “She’s probably performed for four, five, maybe up to 10 million people. She’s retired now.” Charity, Ponder’s gyrfalcon, is 9 years old. Galen the hawk is 13. So, how did Ponder become interested in falconry in the first place? The answer to that question explains why he’s bringing his birds to 15 Ocean County Library branches during the course of the summer. When he was in third grade in Bay City, Mich,, Ponder read a book titled The Summer of the Falcon by Jean Craighead George. He was hooked – falconry became his hobby and then, amazingly to him to this day, his life’s work. “I found my adventure in a book,” Ponder told the kids at the Barnegat presentation. “I’ll tell you guys, there’s a million adventures here in the library.” Ponder has already offered that point to ponder at the Tuckerton, Stafford and Barnegat branches of the library system. Fear not – there’s still an opportunity to take in his interesting show, at the Long Beach Island branch this Monday, July 30, at 2 p.m. The program is for ages 5 and older and you can register online at theoceancountylibrary.org or by calling 609-494-2480. Just tell them a little – well, rather a large – bird sent you. Y

Heat Warning

Foundation Grant

Continued from Page 40 Department reminded folks of in a press release in the midst of last week’s wave. “Most heat illnesses happen when people stay out in the heat too long,” said Daniel Regenye, Ocean County Health Department public health coordinator. “Soaring temperatures can endanger everyone’s health, but outdoor workers are especially at risk. Being outdoors in this heat can lead to very high body temperatures and then subsequent brain and organ damage and even death.” Leslie Tergesen, the OCHD public information officer, offered several tips for those who work outside: Drink from two to four cups of water every hour – repeat, every hour – while working. Do not wait until you feel thirsty! Avoid alcohol or sugary drinks. Use sunscreen. Ask the boss if tasks can be moved to earlymorning or evening hours to avoid midday heat. Wear a brimmed hat and lightweight, lightcolored clothing. Take breaks in air-conditioned areas. Encourage coworkers to drink plenty of water and to take air-conditioned breaks. Seek medical help immediately if you or a coworker exhibits signs of heat-related illness. — Rick Mellerup rickmellerup@thesandpaper.net

Continued from Page 20 in the meetings and forums would be a crosssection of stakeholders in the community: artists, end users, government, business and media. The grant period begins Sept. 1. The questions to be explored include: How best to engage a diverse set of stakeholders in a way that is universally beneficial? What assets are available and/or needed in order to achieve the art objectives? In a tourist-based economy, how does one go about making art appealing to tourists while remaining accessible to the residents? What resources are available and/or needed to achieve that balance? And how do we define “place-specific” art, and what does that mean as it relates to Long Beach Island? LBIF is working with a team of consultants, led by Leonardo Vazquez and the Arts Build Community program at Rutgers University, to facilitate the various interviews and meetings during the information-gathering phase, Gellman explained. Drawing on her previous experience with Rutgers’ Arts Build Community program via webinars, Andersen said the grant’s emphasis is on community building. “The true power of this project is defining what the arts actually are in our community – which is very unique to us and far more than an easel and paintbrush.” The Foundation’s executive director, Chris Seiz, explained that the information gathered will reveal the need, scope and potential for LBI to have a significantly greater draw for tourists and fulltime residents. While the Island plays numerous and varied roles as a tourist destination, he pointed out, it lacks a specific niche, like Asbury Park’s music scene or Cape May’s preserved Victorian appeal. And though artists live and work here, the art community is seemingly disjointed, he added. The LBI Artists Open Studios Tour is an annual success, and the LBI Artists and Crafters organization is thriving, but each is a grassroots movement,

and their continued success needs buy-in from the community at large. The idea is to keep economic development in focus, he said, as an expansion of the feedback obtained from public meetings and interviews with the help of Arts Build Community. The aim in collecting the input, and the job of the partnering agencies, in part, will be to define a “cultural district” in terms that are meaningful and relevant to Long Beach Island, he said. It could mean small-scale sculptural installations throughout the Island. It could mean something else entirely. Gellman mentioned the possibility of special events such as live art performances, public art displays and an artist cooperative. The process will examine what kinds of art offerings already exist here; what sorts of events or activities would be of greatest benefit to the greatest number of stakeholders; and which ideas are (or are not) feasible, given the parameters for resources and the environment. A secondary grant would enable the actual implementation phase, Seiz said. The cultural district concept falls right in line with the LBIF’s mission, which is to promote the arts, enlighten, educate and stimulate thought and discussion through a broad range of programs for all ages. So how might Foundation founder Boris Blai feel about seeing his long-range vision fulfilled? Blai established the LBIF in 1949 as a home base for the art and science fields on the Island (then a more sparsely populated place); to unify members of the art and science communities; and to be a resource for the public, so everyone might appreciate and learn from the arts and sciences and understand more about how they often intersect. Free-spirited artists and thinkers from the Philadelphia area and elsewhere flocked to it for classes, exhibitions and more. At its outset, a group of people representing the LBIF visited every household on the Island to talk to people about their feelings and thoughts on art. “I think Mr. Blai would be seriously psyched,” Gellman said.

Continued from Page 24 designation 15 years in a row. Colony Lakes resident Joan Williams asked about the 25 percent discount on water consumption to senior citizens. Moran said there are specific programs for seniors with economic hardship, who may qualify for the senior tax discount, which would automatically reduce the water base rate by 25 percent. Nancy Schott, owner of Hometown Travel in Manahawkin for 28 years, said she has no problem with the rate, but with the consumption. Her business uses less than 10 percent of the average residence, yet she pays the same as the average person. “I’d rather pay a higher base rate than pay for 13,000 gallons I’m not using,” she said. Usage rates do not cover the cost of infrastructure, Moran said. The equalized rates provide for every resident in the town to enjoy the same quality of service. While the residents were concerned about dollar amounts in the double or triple digits, several business owners stood to complain that their bills seemed to have leaped disproportionately from a couple of hundred dollars to thousands. Resident and business owner Dom Ross expressed outrage over the sizeable jump from last quarter to this. “I voted for all you people to get in here, and I think you should be aware that all these voting people may vote differently next time around.” Resident and business owner Dave Taylor felt it was important to throw the “very real” numbers and concerns out there for the town officials and residents to hear. Resident and commercial property owner Jeff Lopez called the increase “exorbitant” and remarked the people have no recourse. He suggested the town should provide relief of some kind to make it easier for those with economic struggles. — Victoria Lassonde victorialassonde@thesandpaper.net

Karmic Coverage Continued from Page 18

Outpouring of Support To the Editor: Words cannot truly express how affected we have been by the outpouring of support while enduring the recent loss of our mother. As residents of Barnegat Light for nearly all of our lives, we have developed a deep affection for the town, and more importantly, its inhabitants. While our mother’s passing was terribly painful, it was eased greatly by seeing an entire town come together to support two of its own. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you all. Drew Stevens Barnegat Light Tim Stevens Huelo, Hawaii

To the Editor: I was on the beach, ranting and raving to my friends and neighbors about how much I love the weekly SandPaper and anxiously await every new issue. Whenever I am curious or questioning something on the Island, an article or photo seems to appear in The SandPaper with the information. This encompasses construction projects, restaurant music and Surflight theater reviews, Acme supermarket updates, purple houses, horizontal traffic signals, beach stories, Liquid Lines, storm issues, and even a controversial plane-towed banner (really?!). I can honestly say I read everything from cover to cover, had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat as I read the essay about the “Bracelet in the Bay,” and continue to shake my head in disbelief over the “Waste of

A Weekly Advertising Compendiumof Area Professionals

Money” letters. So imagine my surprise when I picked up the July 4 issue and my daughter and her sailing partner were on the cover for the Junior Commodore Regatta. All those to whom I have sung the praises of this newspaper told me it was karma, and who am I to argue with that? Thanks for adding more to everything I love about this magical island! Sarah Anderson North Beach Haven

Shelter Friends To the Editor: Our thanks to Tom and Margie Stewart for a wonderful evening of delicious food and fun at Uncle Will’s Grill in Beach Haven. The dining room was filled with happy diners for the successful benefit held for the Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter. The very generous donation by Uncle

Will’s for the evening’s event will be used for the benefit of animals in Southern Ocean County, providing for needs such as supplemental medical/veterinary care, spay/neuter projects, and sending dogs to rescue. Our thanks also go to Becca Gee and Connie Lohr for organizing the event. Thank you to everyone who supported the event. Uncle Will’s will continue to collect dog and cat food dropped off at the restaurant for the shelter’s food pantry. Dottie Reynolds, president Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter The SandPaper welcomes letters to the editor. They should include the writer’s full name, address and telephone number.

AH... TO DREAM. Do you want to be lulled to sleep listening to the water? Do you want to relax on the sofa with cool breezes or air conditioning while reading a good book? Perhaps you’d rather sunbathe on soft cushions while sipping Margaritas fresh out of the refrigerator or make a snack in the microwave or a meal on the stove. Indoor or outdoor dining with music is your option. Had too many cold ones and need to go? The bathroom is steps away with everything you need. Maybe you’d rather take an open air cruise to your favorite waterfront restaurant... and bring a few friends, there’s room for 12! Yes, this beautifully maintained 1997 24ft. Maxum Cruiser could be the answer to those dreams, and at $11,500 it’s not a nightmare! Call 609-276-1884 to see if dreams come true.
