READY, SET, GROW: Every Monday morning from May to October members of the Garden Club of Long Beach Island meet up at the Edith Duff Gwinn Garden, located behind the Barnegat Light Museum on Fifth Street and Central Avenue, to weed, plant and water the flora. After a busy day of maintenance, they gather around for coffee and iced tea, while sharing laughs and admiring the beauty of their handiwork.

Edith Duff Gwinn Garden

Garden Club Members Receive National Award O

By KELLEY ANNE ESSINGER n Thursday afternoon, Sept. 13, members of The Garden Club of Long Beach Island presented Edith Duff Gwinn Garden committee chairwomen Peg Felix, Betty Frey and Cathy Sutton with a Perennial Bloom Award from the Central Atlantic Region of National Garden Clubs Inc. The honor recognized the three women for their exceptional work in the local Eden, which they have headed for the past 14 years. “Every year we say, ‘That’s it,’ “ joked Felix. “But we always come back. We love the garden.” Those who attended the town’s old, oneroom schoolhouse – now the Barnegat Light Museum on Central Avenue at Fifth Street – used the outside courtyard as a playground. After the schoolhouse closed, the courtyard became an alluring garden adopted by Garden Club founders Edith Duff Gwinn and Frances Selover. In 1998, Felix, Frey and Sutton, who had been members of the Garden Club only for a few months to a couple of years, began managing the preservation of the garden. Every Monday morning from May through October, at least one if not all of the women is outside in the garden, leading other members who show up to help with landscaping duty. “We tell all the worker bees what needs to be done,” Sutton said with a laugh. “We do routine maintenance on Mondays. We cut off all the dead stuff. And then next week there’s a whole new batch of dead stuff we need to cut off. It’s always nonstop maintenance,” she explained. Many years ago, the garden was decorated with numbered stakes that corresponded with the title of the plant it stood near. Plant descriptions could be found written down in a book kept inside the museum. Now the garden is in constant reorder, with new plants and flowers interchanged every season. Keeping up with the numbers of plants is just too trying a task

to mark every one. An array of annual flowers planted every year, including marigolds, petunias and geraniums to name a few, can be seen throughout the garden during the spring and summer months. The variety of colorful flowers planted in the garden is always different every year. Plenty of flowers and evergreens can be found in front of the museum on Central Avenue. Five years ago, the garden club raised enough funds to redo the front area, which formerly was a dirt patch many visitors used for parking their cars. Now the front yard is bedecked with beautiful plants, including knockout roses and lilies, alongside a winding walkway. The pathway leads back around most of the garden, which was finished in four installments and funded through the sale of engraved pieces. The other portion of the garden has maintained its natural trail of pine needles and soil. Perennials can be found throughout the garden all year long. Witch hazel trees, bamboo, heather and bearded iris are just some of the many beautiful plants that thrive throughout the fall and winter seasons. “In the springtime, the garden is alive with flowers. But anyone who doesn’t come up to the garden in a snowstorm is missing out,” said Frey. “You have to see it. The witch hazel, heather, kale, cabbage: It’s all in full bloom. It’s beautiful,” she emphasized. Benches donated by longtime members are stationed near a compass designed in honor of Selover. A wrap-around seat, surrounding a giant tree, was dedicated in remembrance of 9/11 and is now a perfect place to sit and relax amid the flora. But many of the club’s members prefer sitting upon a large rock situated in the middle of the garden, while sipping coffee and iced tea during their 10:30 break on “Monday maintenance” mornings. Copper birdbaths, picnic tables, a fish pond filled with goldfish, an herb garden marked by

seashells, a trickling water fountain dedicated to everyone who has worked in the garden, a spherical sundial donated by Selover’s daughter-in-law, and a tar pot replica are just some of many wondrous things found among the variety of plants and flowers in the garden. The club also maintains the garden at

the Beach Haven Public Library. The annual Holiday Tour of Homes on Long Beach Island will be held on Thursday, Dec. 13, to help raise money for the club and the scholarships it offers to local school students. For more information, visit Y

Finding Top School Requires Searching Beyond Back Yard Families Told to Expand Their Horizons By RICK MELLERUP t’s the beginning of another school year and high school seniors and juniors are looking ahead. Seniors are putting the finishing touches on their college applications and are starting to get nervous as they await “decision day.” Juniors and their parents are getting the ball tentatively rolling as they start thinking seriously for the first time about picking a college or university. Times have changed. A college diploma, even from a Top 100 university, no longer is an automatic ticket to success, not after the Great Recession. And money, more than ever before, has become a factor as a year in a top school will run well over $50,000. Media stories about college students, even those who didn’t attend a top-rung institution, graduating with scores, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars of student loan debt, are becoming commonplace. Some opinion page pundits have even proposed that a college degree is no longer cost-efficient! Well, those naysayers are still in a minority. Studies, said Steven Roy Goodman, a professional education consultant and admissions strategist who spoke recently at the Long Beach Island Branch of the Ocean County Library, show that a college degree still can add $500,000 to $1,000,000 to a person’s lifetime income. And


top-rung schools still offer great college educations and, just as importantly, add cache to a resume. So, how does a student get into a Top 100 school? Obviously a student needs good, indeed, great grades and SAT scores. Extracurricular activities help – as one woman who attended Goodman’s program said, “I know a guy who got into Yale because they needed a tuba player and he was an All-State New Jersey tuba player.” We won’t even broach the subject here of “legacies,” the sons and daughters of alumni. But even with good grades and a list of extracurriculars a mile long, it can be difficult to get into a top-flight college. Not for nothing are they called “highly selective.” Goodman offered some advice to the students, parents and grandparents who attended the library program. “I wrote a book, along with Andrea Leiman, called College Admissions Together: It Takes a Family,” said Goodman. “It had a number of major themes. “What is the objective? An elite school? A sports school? Close to home? Far away from home? How much merit aid is available? Job training? Conservative? Liberal? A friend used to say, ‘Princeton University doesn’t just offer an education, it also offers an experience. The military academies also offer an experience.” So many factors to consider, es-

versus price.” But families, said Goodman, should look at the entire picture. “You’re looking for the right fit, like a marriage. You’re looking for compatibility. You look at social and economic status, intellectual programs and academic intent. Admissions is really about slicing and dicing in many different ways.” Location, Location The main part of Goodman’s program dealt with matching a student’s and a college’s needs. Sure, an all-state athlete stands a great chance of getting a free ride at a major public university, some of which – the University of Michigan kept coming up – are Top 100 academically, as well as a perennial Rose Bowl contender. And if a student has done something great and unusual in high school – published a book, become heavily involved in a political campaign, etc. – then they have something to offer a school.The problem, obviously, is that few students are all-state quarterbacks or have been featured in a New York Times article. Interestingly, one of the best attributes, if played right, a student may have is his or her home town. They say in the real estate business that location is everything. Well, the same thing almost holds true in college admissions. “Let’s say you’re an admissions guy from Bucknell,” said Goodman. “He sees you need $30,000 in aid. Would you give $30,000 to anybody? No, you don’t have to. What’s the incentive for Bucknell to throw some money your way? What can you offer?” Well, geographic diversity remains a major goal of many colleges and universities. A Bucknell, a Villanova, is going to have a ton of applicants from Pennsylvania or New Jersey. So why offer a merit package to a student from such places (unless, of course, they are truly exceptional)? Better to offer one to a student from Arizona or Montana. Better to accept a student from a state from which the

Some Colleges Offer Learning Tuition Free! By RICK MELLERUP ollege sure can be an expensive proposition these days, yet many people aren’t aware there are some fine – some even top-tier – institutions out there that students can attend for free. Everybody knows about the big military academies, West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy. Fewer people know about the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, N.Y., but like the “Big Three,” it is highly selective; indeed, students wishing to attend any of the four schools require a congressional nomination. But the nation’s fifth military academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., often seems to be a well-kept secret. Like the other military academies, it isn’t truly free; a five-year service commitment after graduation is attached. But students not only don’t have to pay tuition, but also receive an $11,150 annual stipend. Continued on Page 56


school currently has few students calling it home. “The more elite the school is in a particular region, the less incentive they have to offer a merit package,” said Goodman. Urban schools have an advantage, said the expert. Students from west of the Mississippi, who can play off of that need for geographic diversity, tend to apply to colleges in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore. One of the best plays for both admission and financial aid is to look for a highly-rated but relatively Continued on Page 46

91-Year-Old WWII Veteran Gets His Medals

Surf City Resident Details Battles, Conclusions on War J

By MICHAEL MOLINARO ohn Gutbrod of Surf City remains fairly wily and spry for someone who has lived 91 years and saw action on D-Day of World War II and beyond. In late July of this year, he finally received the medals he had earned in that war in a ceremony in Toms River – a Bronze Star, Purple Star and eight others – and with his ever-sharp mind, he recalled in an interview with The SandPaper the details of how he had earned them. Gutbrod first entered military service when he joined the Army in 1940. He got into jump school after noticing a poster calling for paratroopers while he was stationed on Long Beach Island as part of the 113th Infantry in the National Guard, which patrolled the beaches. Their station of tents was set up in a lot across the street from where the former Wida’s Hotel and Restaurant in Brant Beach, now daddy O’s, was located. “February and March of 1942 was miserable here,” said Gutbrod. “Oh, Christ. This is a miserable place in the winter. Believe it or not, at that time, I would’ve jumped without a chute just to get off the Island.” He ended up in Fort Benning, Ga., in the latter part of that year. At that time there were 400 parachute regiments; Gutbrod became a member of the 507th parachute regiment. That regiment was alerted for overseas movement in December 1943, and headed to England, where it was stationed in the “Robin Hood Country” of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire to begin training for D-Day. The paratroopers joined up with the 82nd Airborne Division, the last regiment to take off from England, on June 6. Consequently, by that time the Germans were well aware of their impending arrival, and many of his regiment were lost before they

even hit the ground. “The lower the jump, the better so you can get on the ground and out of your equipment,” said Gutbrod, describing combat jumps of 500 feet or less in which the plane dipped down so jumpers didn’t hit the tail upon leaping as flak and tracers flew through the air. “The chute opens by itself by a static line that is pulled by a cable running the length of the plane. It happens pretty quickly. “The planes were shot down, guys were hurt and injured in the drop, and some were captured. God, we were scattered all over Hell and back; we were nowhere near our so-called ‘drop zone.’” It was dark – 3 in the morning – and Gutbrod hit the ground in the back of a small French farmyard without the slightest idea where he was. “George!” he cried out, to which an American was trained to respond, “Marshall!” A band of about eight soldiers from all different outfits formed from calling out in code. “You lived off the land. Every once in a while a cow would be in front of you, and somebody would shoot it,” said Gutbrod, describing the French farmland. It was about 72 hours before they got to an area with more men and started to function as a unit to carry on the mission to secure a series of causeways that were the only paths on and off the beaches of Normandy to the mainland. “This was not like the causeway we have here. This was nothing but dirt – dirt that had been there for centuries,” said Gutbrod. “Our objectives were to secure those causeways and prevent the Germans from getting to the beach. It worked. Three out of the six we secured and held.” Partly to thank for their success were ancient natural hedgerows that had grown for hundreds of years, which German tanks and armored

units could not penetrate. Gutbrod fought at Normandy for 37 days after being told by commanding officers, “Give us a good, hard fight and we’ll have you back in England in three days.” “That was a long three days,” he said. Of the 148 enlisted men and eight officers in his company, only about 60 got back on the plane to England. “Some were wounded, evacuated, captured. The majority were killed in action, and we lost about 55 percent of the company.” Still Gutbrod had nothing but praise for his commanding two-star general, James M. Gavin, whom he called the best general in the history of the Army since George Custer. “He was 36 when he got his star. He looked about 21. They don’t make ’em like that anymore. He was unlike any officer I ever met. He jumped just like the rest of us.” The remnants of his unit were difficult to refit again, so they joined with the 17th Division, which was short a parachute regiment. They trained with that division until the Battle of the Bulge, in the winter of 1944 – the coldest winter that had been seen in Europe in decades. Gutbrod stayed there with the 17th for 40 days. His Purple Heart came from being wounded on Jan. 5 during the campaign when mortar fragments ripped open his stomach. He was evacuated to a French hospital, where he remained for 40 more days. “In my outfit you only got sent back to the States when you lost a leg or an arm.” In mid-February, Gutbrod got word he would be a part of Operation Varsity, the last paratrooper combat drop of the war. In March 1944, his regiment ended up in the Ruhr Valley of the Ruhr River, a center for German weapons manufacturing owned by the Krupp family. “Now they make elevators; then

The ceremony was in Toms River, late July. they made tanks and big guns,” said Gutbrod. They occupied the Krupp mansion on the Ruhr River and captured the head of the Krupp munitions people, Alfred Krupp, along with Franz von Papen – chancellor for Germany in 1932 and vice-chancellor under Hitler from 1933 to 1934. The story of how he earned his Bronze Star was one of much talk at the medal ceremony in July, according to Gutbrod. “They keep beating their gums about that. … A tank got into our rear area – a Panzer III. That early model didn’t have a trap door in the

turret where he could slide and take a look and see what was behind him, and the road was tight, where they couldn’t turn the turret 360 degrees, either. A guy by the name of Boyle, I think, jammed something in the tank tracks to stop it from rolling. Another guy took out the three guys they had following them outside.” Gutbrod is a first-generation American whose family came from Germany. He was raised in a household where he picked up on both English and German, but he was taught that upon leaving the house, he was to use only English. Continued on Page 54

Barnegat Youngsters Slug Runs To Second Place in Homer Derby


arnegat Township could be grooming some future sluggers. Matt Kulpa and Nick Danbrowney, ages 10 and 8, respectively, came in second last month in the Philadelphia Phillies’ Home Run Derby. Bob Kulpa, Matt’s father, said the youngsters earned the journey to Citizens Bank Park by placing first in their local qualifier. They then won in their age groups in the regionals at Spring Lake. The finals took place before a Phillies afternoon game against the Milwaukee Brewers. “Matt and Nick both finished second in their division,” Kulpa said. “Another kid tied Matt for second place, so Matt had to go another round and win a ‘hit-off ’ in order to maintain second place.” The boys received their trophies from Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr. right before the start of the game and had their names announced over the loudspeaker. “Approximately 22,000 boys and girls participate in the derby every year, so the boys really beat the odds just to get to Philadelphia, let alone win second place. The fact that two boys from Barnegat won trophies made it really special.”

Of course, in these age groups, the length of the home runs would be a short fly ball to a major leaguer. In Danbrowney’s group, the home run distance is 100 feet, while in Matt’s bracket, the ball has to travel 125 feet. “You get one point for hitting it in fair territory,” Matt’s father said. “They get two points for hitting one past the first set of cones, and then five points for a home run, which goes over the second row of cones.” This was Matt’s second appearance at the finals, having made the cut in 2010. The Little League participant’s favorite positions are pitcher, catcher, first and third base. “I hope I get stronger so I can come back and win it next year,” he said. “I try to practice every day.” Nick has played shortstop, second base and pitcher. And he didn’t feel too out of place even though he’s a Mets fan. “That ball park sure feels large when you walk out on the field,” he said. “It was fun, and I’m going to keep playing and try it again next year.” — Eric Englund

Little Egg Harbor Still Pondering Reassessment


ittle Egg Harbor Mayor John Kehm called for patience from the community while he and the township committee work toward finding a solution to the town’s increasing number of tax appeals, a process he said was “bleeding” the town’s coffers. In 2012, 1,500 tax appeals were filed in Little Egg Harbor. Last month, the township appointed an ad hoc committee to look into finding possible solutions without having to go through an expensive revaluation whereby an independent company would reassess every property both inside and out. The results of that research will be presented at the Sept. 27 committee meeting. During the Sept. 13 committee meeting, township officials approved sending two resolutions to Ocean County freeholders, 9th District legislators and the governor. The first one supports two pieces of legislation, S1231 and A1591. The Senate bill, introduced in January by Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-District 1), would establish a pilot program in two counties using new computer software that would establish property assessments in real time through real estate sales and would be a collaborative process between a county tax board and the municipalities in that county. Both the Senate and Assembly companion bill are in committees and not yet on the legislative calendar. The bills seek to protect municipal budgets from the impacts of successful tax appeals, which usually result in the refunding of tax dollars and reduces the amount of tax dollars available to fund municipal operations. “It’s high time we do something to resolve this situation; it’s long overdue,” said Committeeman Ed Nuttall, a member of the ad hoc committee. Petitions by f ive senior communities in Little Egg Harbor were attached to the resolution. The second resolution “urges the New Jersey Legislature to revise the statutes governing the control a municipality may exert over its own employees, specifically the tax assessor,” read Township Attorney Robin La Bue. This is aimed at Tax Assessor Joseph Sorrentino, who by state statute is employed by the township but answers to the county board of taxation. Kehm said he had tried to set up a meeting with Sorrentino through the business administrator, but they had been unsuccessful as of that evening.

Early Childhood Learning Center Opens A

celebration and ribbon cutting was held last Thursday afternoon for the Robert C. Wood Sr. Early Childhood Center, a 14-room preschool next to George J. Mitchell Elementary School in Little Egg Harbor Township. The project came to completion in under seven months, but the planning process including financing for the project took nine years, noted Little Egg Harbor School District Superintendent Frank Kasyan. “How does one get a school named after one?” asked Kasyan during his speech thanking all who had brought the school to a reality. “First off, one has to have an understanding wife,” he said in deference to Marva Wood. “Nine years ago I asked if I could borrow her husband and she said ‘yes.’ It started in 2003 with a Board of Education ad hoc committee,” said Kasyan. “And Robert Wood was part of that ad hoc committee. He stayed with it. He has devoted countless hours and put his heart and soul into the building, all for the sake of the children. That’s how you get a building named after you.” Wood retired as a maintenance supervisor for the Hamilton Township School District, overseeing 23 schools, and brought his experience to the project. “I thought I could be of assistance,” said Wood, who now sits on the board of education. Board President Gina Frasca said building the center was not an easy road. “It was a long and arduous one but absolutely worth it. I know our preschool children are going to have an academic adSunrise Bay resident Walter Geldart asked the committee to withdraw a resolution passed in July that called for a revaluation of the township. “We’re in a bind with the number of tax appeals,” replied Kehm. “We have to do something and be proactive.” He said tax appeals are “bleeding” the town of money needed for municipal operations, and the school budgets still need to be paid for from a shrinking pool of money. “(Successful) tax appeals can bankrupt the town,” said Kehm. “Whether we do a reassessment with the tax assessor or a revaluation (by hiring a company), we have to do something. The subcommittee will be making their recommendations with what our best avenues are. Maybe it is the tax assessor (doing an in-house assessment), but until we sit with him, we won’t know; he hasn’t responded to us.” Geldart said the right of a taxpayer to appeal his taxes is a right given by state statute. “Why don’t you raise your tax rate?” Kehm said the committee did not

Mystic Shores resident Ricco Gelmetti suggested that if the committee couldn’t direct the tax assessor, it should call the director of the Ocean County Tax Board and ask her to direct the tax assessor to do what it is they want. Gelmetti also had a complaint on the work being done to install handicap ramps in the sidewalks of his community. Gelmetti said in one instance, the ramp leads off to a place where there is no sidewalk. “In my opinion, the project is a disaster. They are butchering people’s lawns.” Township Engineer Jim Oris said the project is funded by a Community Development Block Grant and is meant to help handicapped people negotiate their neighborhood better. Oris did ask if Gelmetti would give

him a list of complaints and said he would look into it. Earlier, the township awarded a contract for the repaving and drainage reconstruction for Ship Drive and Tiller Court in Mystic Island to Jerry and Sons Excavating out of Mays Landing, the low bidder at $169,909. This summer, the township was able to hire four part-time employees through a Clean Communities Grant. Thursday night they extended those hires as provisional laborers in the Department of Public Works. Business Administrator Garret Loesch said public works had five vacancies going back to 2010, and PW Superintendent Patrick Donnelly had been doing more with less. But with the grant money and a longtime employee retirement in the department, he still expected to see a projected savings in the payroll next year, even with the new hires. Three of the laborers have their CDL licenses and could operate snowplows. Continued on Page 50

Barnegat Doing Better in Budget, Debt Comparison


perceived eyebrow-raising disparity between the overall state of affairs in Stafford and Barnegat townships arose during the public comment portion of the Sept. 4 Stafford Township meeting. Resident Dave Taylor, a small-business owner and independent candidate for town council in the upcoming election, said he was surprised to see the numbers spelled out in a full-page campaign ad that ran in the August edition of The Barnegat Leader, containing a sideby-side fiscal comparison between the two neighboring towns. “As a taxpayer, it kind of knocked me off my chair,” he said.

With populations relatively close in size – Stafford’s 26,000 versus Barnegat’s 21,000 – Stafford’s $40 million municipal budget is nearly double Barnegat’s $20 million. Stafford also has six times the debt, with $139 million compared to Barnegat’s $23 million. Taylor called the disproportionate numbers “flat-out scary.” Township Administrator James Moran defended the town, telling Taylor the debt comparison figure was inaccurate. It’s also hard to say what was included in the budget figure, he added. Stafford’s total debt is $75 million,

Moran said. The other $64 million is money owed to the Ocean County Utility Authority for water and sewer. Taylor said he didn’t see how it matters where or to whom the money is owed; debt is still debt. Mayor John Spodofora added the property taxes in Stafford are considerably lower than in Barnegat, so the numbers are misleading. Councilman Henry Mancini said the houses valued as like-kind in the two towns represent a 16 percent difference in property taxes. Spodofora also said Stafford has more to offer its residents in terms of resources and services.

From Taylor’s standpoint as a candidate on the Independent ticket running under the campaign slogan “We Are Stafford,” he said he and his running mates look forward, with hope and determination, to getting into office to sort out an apparent (in their view) track record of questionable spending and borrowing practices. In particular Taylor wants to figure out where the budget can be trimmed of unnecessary expenditures and to look to neighboring towns, such as Barnegat, to follow a better example of shared services and other cost-saving measures. — Victoria Lassonde

Stafford Rep. Campaigning Separately


s the party politics surrounding the municipal election in Stafford Township heat up, the Republican team of council candidates known as “Moving Stafford Ahead,” led by mayoral incumbent John Spodofora, is divided on the campaign trail. As one indicator, an invitation to an upcoming campaign fundraising dinner at the Holiday Inn lists only three of the seven candidates: Henry Mancini, Lori Wyrsch and Paul Krier. Mancini emphasized his support of the team as a whole, specifying the split is strictly for campaigning purposes. “We support Column A,” he said. “From Mitt Romney all the way down to the council.” Mancini cited “philosophical and participatory differences” as the reason for splintering off from the group, though he supports the entire column on the ballot, he said. As time grew shorter, he said, they felt it was in the best interest of everyone to proceed separately and to “a cohesive, positive campaign.” Asked to elaborate on how said philosophies differ, Mancini declined to comment further. Council hopeful Sharon McKenna couldn’t guess at what Mancini might have meant. She said she still looks at the team as a unified seven. Having been nominated by the Stafford Township Regular Republican Club, McKenna said, “I remain loyal to what the primary voters wanted, which was for all of us to work as a team. “We support the team,” she said. “from Romney on down.” —V.L.

Our Gang Players Wins Theater Award For Being Best Community Group in NJ


ur Gang Players is not only the longest-running community theater company in Southern Ocean County but the best community theater company in the state! On Sept. 9 Our Gang was presented with the 2012 Community Theater Award at an award ceremony held by the New Jersey Association of Community Theaters. It is the highest honor a community theater troupe in New Jersey can receive and honors the group’s “outstanding contributions to the community.” Sherry Schnepp, the troupe’s artistic director and cofounder, knew something was up about a week before the ceremony. “We hadn’t been nominated for any of the regular categories so we weren’t planning on attending,” said Schnepp. “But then I got a phone call from somebody from NJACT saying we were ‘strongly advised’ to attend.” The award has strict guidelines that are followed when the NJACT board is choosing a winner. A group must have performed at least one show for each of the past 10 years. Our Gang has been producing shows – usually many more than one – since it was founded in 1977. Check. Nominated theaters must show some level of community service. Our Gang not only provides entertainment to the residents of Southern Ocean County but runs public bus trips to New York and the Papermill Playhouse, New Jersey’s official state theater. More importantly, the troupe has launched the careers of many a child who went on to advanced degrees in the theatrical arts and Broadway appearances. Check. To be eligible for the award, a group may show evidence of “surviving trauma and hardship to come back and continue with excellence. Our Gang has known its hardships over the years, moving from theater to theater while searching for a permanent home of its own, seeing performances wiped out by blizzards and hurricanes. Yet it survives, stronger, perhaps, than

ever. Check. Theater companies may show “involvement with youth, seniors and special needs audiences.” If you’ve ever seen an Our Gang audience you know that all are welcomed. Check. Nominated companies should show commitment to more than one genre. Considering Our Gang has divisions serving the youngest performers (K6), teens, adults and mixed groups, it certainly meets that criterion. The troupe, known for its musicals, will also be adding a “straight” show this winter. Check. Finally, a troupe may show that it has shown community effort with other theaters in either performance or nonperformance. Out Gang has spun off at least two other theatre companies in Southern Ocean County and retains amicable relations (actors attend the performances of other troupes and often bounce back and forth between companies) with both. Check. Our Gang isn’t resting on its laurels. Indeed, it has planned an exhaust-

ing 2012-13 season. It is currently rehearsing its next show, the musical “Legally Blonde,” which will be performed at the OceanFirst Theater in Manahawkin on Oct. 11, 12, 13, 14, 19 and 20. It is also preparing to launch its next venture, “Music Man Jr.” Registration will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. for kids in fifth through eighth grade on Friday, Sept. 28. Younger kids – from first to fourth grade and children even younger who have been in Our Gang shows before – will register from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 4. Both sessions will be held at the Donahue School in Barnegat Township. The show itself is scheduled for Jan. 11, 12 and 13 and will be performed at the OceanFirst.

Surf City Council Curbs Requests From Residents to Paint Curbs


he issue of whether to paint curbs yellow within 25 feet of intersections and crosswalks, so as to warn motorists they can’t park there, had Surf City residents seeing red at the monthly borough council meeting on Sept. 12. Three residents spoke during the public comment portion of meeting concerning that issue, beginning with Mike McGurkin, 70, who has lived in the town for three years. “I noticed in Ship Bottom they’ve painted all the corners yellow. And I’m wondering if something like that would make people less apt to park on the corner,” McGurkin said addressing the council. He went on to offer a solution for the manpower portion of such a

project. “There are some Boy Scouts looking for an Eagle project, and if they wanted to do the painting the borough might be able to provide some support in terms of providing the paint or whatever.” He said he has extensive experience as a scout leader and would like to mentor whatever scouts were trying to work on the project. “I’m just making that a suggestion, to make it easier for people to know they’re breaking the law when they get their ticket.” Twenty-five feet is the distance from an intersection and crosswalk where curb parking is banned, as was made clear by Mayor Leonard T. Connors and Police Chief William Continued on Page 46

MULTIFACETED: The Long Beach Island annual Triathlon/Duathlon hit Island roads and waters on Sunday. The triathlon consisted of a quarter-mile bay swim, 10-mile bike ride and a 5K run. (Above) The swimming took place in the bay off Bayview Park in Brant Beach. The duathlon consisted of a 1.5-mile run, 10-mile bike and a 5K run.

Osborn Island Bridge Construction to Start Construction on the Osborn Island Bridge that links Osborn Island to the rest of Little Egg Harbor Township is set to begin in two weeks now that the Ocean County Engineering Department has awarded a contract to replace the span over Great Creek. The $6,771,000 contract was awarded to Marlbro Construction, a company from Marlton, which is currently working on the Lake Pohatcong dam project in Tuckerton. The first part of construction is to create coffer dams in the creek; this work must be completed before the end of October, when winter flounder migration begins. The project is estimated to take 15 months. One lane of the bridge will remain open throughout construction. —P.J.

Ocean County Recycling Directory Now Available A recycling guide with information on all residential and commercial recycling programs in Ocean County, including schedules for fall household hazardous waste collection, is now available. The Ocean County Recycling Directory, distributed annually by the county’s Department of Solid Waste Management and the Board of Chosen Freeholders, “includes important telephone numbers, frequently asked questions on recycling and a comprehensive breakdown of what is collected at each municipal recycling center and the two regional facilities operated by the county,” said Freeholder James F. Lacey, who serves as liaison to the county’s recycling program. “This guide serves as a year-round guide and directory to recycling.” The county will distribute directories to all municipal recycling centers and the County Connection at the Ocean County Mall in Toms River. In addition, the guide was dispersed as inserts in various local newspapers. “Using the newspaper as a means to bring this information into the homes of our residents and also to our businesses is a convenient method of distribution,” noted Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little. “Educating the public about recycling is key to making certain the program remains viable and successful.” “Education and awareness are keys to the success of all of our programs,” said Lacey. “Recycling comes with environmental and financial benefits, and this guide helps provide information that our residents and businesses need.” As Lacey pointed out, by increasing recycling rates in Ocean County, recycling revenue-sharing checks for participating municipalities will grow, along with greater distribution of mini-grants for recycling center upgrades. As a result, there will be more space available at the Ocean County Landfill, extending its use into the future. The directory also provides information on recycling items such as paints, fluorescent bulbs and computers. “We accept all of these items at the county’s regional recycling centers free of charge,” Lacey explained. “I encourage our residents to take advantage of the services offered by the county and many municipalities. “We pride ourselves on a clean environment here in Ocean County,” he added. “This guide will certainly help connect our residents with programs that will help to make certain our environment stays that way. What we recycle helps in our efforts to keep Barnegat Bay and all of our waterways clean.” The guide contains times, dates and locations for the county’s annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, which includes a collection at the Stafford Township Public Works Garage on Hay Road from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 13. Prior registration is required to participate. For more information, visit the Ocean County web site at —J.K.-H.

Spodofora Gets Proper Military Paperwork

Prestera Ties Record For Career Victories With the Lady Bengals R ick Blasi, first-year coach of the Barnegat High School girls varsity tennis team, inherited a squad that so far looks as if it has a good chance to successfully defend its Shore Conference Class B South title it shares with Lacey High School. Leading the 8-0 team is senior Anna Prestera, who competes in the first singles and is undefeated. In a victory over Point Boro on Sept. 17, Prestera tied Kelly Czumble’s school record of 71 career victories, set in 2009. She had a chance to set the mark Sept. 19 against Lakewood. As a junior, she sported a 26-4 mark. In July, Prestera won the 18-year-olds division in the United Tennis Association’s Modell’s Summer Open in Toms River. “She has a decent serve and is a very consistent player,” said Blasi. “She doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, and she worked very hard this summer to improve her game.” Seniors Colleen Anderson, who is also undefeated, and Marlena Brazill play second and third singles, respectively. “They’re looking to make the transition to singles after two years together in doubles,” said Blasi. Seniors Erin Law and Jenn Rochette compete in first doubles, while a rotation of senior Melody Samuels, senior Emily Maina and junior Madelyn Jackstadt play second doubles. “Our doubles players are all making their varsity debuts after rotating through junior varsity singles last year,” said Blasi. “This is the eight that we’ll be fielding in varsity play this year.” He said if replacements are needed, promising sophomores Christina San Giacomo and Erin Carroll could see varsity action. “We have 17 girls in the program,”

he said. “The ones who don’t play varsity will be playing JV. We need them to develop so they can play on the varsity level because we’re going to lose some seniors after this season.” — Eric Englund

OFF TO A FAST START: Prior to the season, the Barnegat High School girls varsity tennis team practiced their serves and strokes in an intrasquad scrimmage. Marlena Brazill (left), who plays third singles, returns a shot. Anna Prestera (center), who plays first singles, gets ready to serve. Colleen Anderson (right), who like Prestera is undefeated, is hoping for an ace. As of Sept. 17, the Lady Bengals were 8-0.

Still-Young Southern Volleyball Team Slowly Maturing By RICK MELLERUP ports teams sometimes need a reality check to get them going. Sometimes they need more than one. First case in point – the 2012 New York Giants. You’d think that after a 24-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener, the defending Super Bowl champs would have hit the field against Tampa Bay on Sunday with their hackles up and their nostrils flaring. But QB Eli Manning threw three first half interceptions, including one that was returned 60 yards for a touchdown, and the mighty Giants trailed the Bucs by 14 points in the second half. Facing an 0-2 start to the season, Manning woke up. Big time! By the time the dust had settled, the Giants had recorded a 41-34 win and Manning had thrown for 510 yards. His favorite target was Victor Cruz, who caught 11 passes for 179 yards including an 80-yard TD. Hakeem Nicks had 10 catches for 199 yards. It was a record setting afternoon – never in the history of the NFL had two teammates had 10 or more receptions and 175 yards in the same game! Second case in point – the 2012 Southern Regional High School girls volleyball team.


Ryan Morrill

SET TO SOAR: The SRHS girls volleyball team has big shoes to fill – their own. A state-level powerhouse – the ‘team to beat’ for anyone on their schedule – this year’s team is a work in progress, despite a stellar showing last year. Southern, a perennial state power, went into its first game this season against Marlboro with a 164-2 all-

time record in Shore Conference play. On Sept. 6, however, the team saw that all-time record fall to 164-3 after suf-

fering a 20-25, 25-19, 17-25 defeat to Marlboro. Continued on Page 50

Manahattan-Sized Bergs; Fall Fishing Looms Large


don’t know if I suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder or luxuriate in it. There’s something oddly soothing about moving onto the next subject while the one I’m on is still in the midst of explaining itself. Uh, hold that thought, dude. I offer that as an ADD lead-in to a week that has fishing and nature subjects hitting me like hail. From Manhattan-sized icebergs to plugged gulls to a big-ass shark spotting to going crazy with a GoPro camera to an insane mullet migration to beach buggy banter to … you get the point. Fortunately, I scratched down some notes along the way. I do have to begin at a cosmically frivolous level. I’m a firm believer in the Warholian concept that, in life, everyone will get 15 minutes of fame – and fortune. But how in bloody hell does Honey Boo Boo Girl get hers before I get mine? WTF!? Looks like I’ll just continue to bang out my low-fame column – as someone teaches Honey Boo Boo to count her redneck earnings. NAME THAT GLACIER: On a seriously planetary level, a prominent scientist I know – and have actively debated over the speed of rising oceans – continues to suffer from advanced global warmingaphobia. Last week, he inundated me with technical updates regarding an ongoing melting glacier story cascading out of Greenland. Seems Greenlanders’ prized Petermann Glacier had a huge piece of ice, “twice the size of Manhattan,” break free last month. I was mesmerized by the report, especially when it

pointed out an even larger portion of Petermann, “four times the size of Manhattan,” had broken loose in June. What an eye-opener. To think they actually name their glaciers up there. You know your winters are long and insufferably boring when you begin giving surnames to random pieces of ice. For the sake of their sanity, I’m cheering on global warming and melting glaciers. Hey, I’ve seen “The Shining” more than a few times. There’s something spooky about folks who just sit around watching ice crystals form – so they’ll have some company. “Hello, Mr. Petermann, what will it be?” “I’m awfully glad you asked, Lloyd.” But on to the more serious, scientific angle of these melting glacier reports, namely, the sizes of those breakaway icebergs. Marvel: How the frig did “Manhattan” become the measuring stick for breakaway icebergs?! Here on LBI, we live right down the road from Manhattan and I guarantee there’s not one of us who has an acreage clue as to what “four times the size of “Manhattan” means. Hell’s bells, mere Manhattan-sized chunks might be a damn good thing. Now, had a chunk been four times the size of, say, Chatsworth, I’d be sweating it. Anyway, I told my glacier-gazing buddy I would mention this ice-melting development since he accuses me of never presenting both sides to the rising-seas story. I’ll even offer this quote. “It’s dramatic. It’s disturbing,” said

Brown Bagging It It’s Sand Against the Sea at Holgate Entrance MAYBE YEP, MAYBE NOPE: For mobile anglers wanting to buggy to the famed south end of LBI, successfully getting on has become a day-to-day, hour-to-hour affair.

While boat fishing now falls off a wee bit, surf fishing 2012 is about to detonate, not only because it’s lining up to be a classic fall, weather-wise, but also because there have never been so many surfcasters ready to rumble. I know you’ve heard tell of ye olden LBI fishing days when surfcasting reigned supreme around here. In a classicist way, it’s very true that fall was once all but owned by surfcasters. However, those glory days were not overly populated. I have mulled over dozens of old, fall, beach-fishing shots from LBI, when it was called “a secret island getaway.” You can see for miles between anglers. Gorgeous openness, bordering on nothingness. There was no jockeying for jetty space – or beach space, prior to the jetties (1960s). Back then, when you did happen upon a fellow caster, there was a brotherhood gleaned from the distances between. Nowadays, each arriving fall attracts surf-fishing squads in record Supplied Photo numbers. Sure, places like Beach Haven have always had a healthy quota of sudsers, but when you now factor in the entire 18 miles of beach between BL and Holgate, the total count of Island casters has become all-time astronomical.

Continued from Page 44 This year the Classic runs between Oct. 8 and Dec. 4. Myth buster: The Classic is not even remotely an exclusive or uppity event. In fact, the longer eight-week format is actually designed to allow the maximum number of anglers to get in, fit in, fishing sessions.

Those are: Surf City Bait & Tackle; Fisherman’s Headquarters; Jingles Bait & Tackle Shop; Oceanside Bait & Tackle. HOLGATE HAPPENINGS: I’ve been going “pro” in Holgate, though definitely not fishing-wise – though I have been catching more fish than usual, which isn’t saying much. Thanks to my new GoPro camcorder, I’m seeing – and capturing – the south end in a whole new light. You’ve surely heard of GoPros; tiny, readyfor-abuse, high-def cameras, developed by Woodman Labs in Half Moon Bay, California. They’re right up the extreme angling alley. Admittedly, my first YouTube creations via GoPro are so far from pro that the YouTube people debated banning me for at least two months on principle alone. Not true. It turns out YouTube is actually run by the cameras themselves and show no prejudices. Despite my shaky start in the videography realm, just the recording process itself was a blast. I got to drive along the south end beach while sticking the GoPro out the truck window. Now that’s “raw footage.” Check out my maiden YouTube voyage by going to YouTube and type in “First Day Drive On Holgate.” The audio for my “drive on” was some self-humming along with riveting choruses in deafening Windese. I have quickly elevated my camcorder game by doing YouTube stints using a GoPro headband attachment. I’ve focused on casting net for mullet – from the eyes of the tosser, i.e. me. Check those out at YouTube by typing “Net mullet Holgate” or, better yet, go to www.jaymanntoday. and check blogs with YouTube links. The latest one, YouTube titled “trip to rip raw,” shows the insane mullet run we’re having. By the by, I have to explain the weird rusty water color in those netting scenes, since the main feedback I’m getting is focused on the odd, tea-colored look of the bay. While that bay water sure looks identical to every and all Pinelands lakes and creeks, similar coloration does occasionally show up in our bays. It’s almost always the result of downpour rains and runoff from the mainland. The tint can linger for days and weeks after the source storm. Importantly, there’s not a thing wrong with that water, as evidenced by the torrid fishing action near where I recorded my mullet netting. For real-time Holgate updates, check with tackle shops or my blogsites. SMILE FOR THE CAMERA: Leaving Holgate last week toward dark, I clearly saw a truly massive shark right in the first cut. It was maybe 20 yards out, if that. It came up in a wave and its dorsal fin broke water. It was pushing 8 feet – maybe larger. I kid you not. I don’t kid about that stuff. I grabbed my Canon, jumped out of my truck and waited over ten minutes for it to show again. No luck. Drat!

POGO JR. ON BOARD: I had a cool animal experience last week. Egged on by the smell of fresh mullet in the back of my truck, a rambunctious adolescent possum climbed into the bed after dark and got hung up in my cast net – which I had carelessly thrown in the back. When first uncovered, the little bugger went into a “play dead” mode. By the by, that survival device is not voluntary. A possum literally passes out, as in “Oh, my god!” Clunk. In this case, its tongue came out and its face and eyes took on the look of a college freshman after a frat party. To remove Pogo Jr., I didn’t even have to don gloves. Nature note: You do not want to get tagged by a possum. Talk about wicked-sharp incisors. It turned out the explorative marsupial wasn’t actually entwined in my net but had gotten under it and likely panicked. I’m guessing he freaked, passed out, slowly woke up, looked around, freaked again, passed out, etc. Slowly lifting the net, I picked up his psuedo-rigor mortis body by sliding my hand underneath. I then kindheartedly walked him over to some thick bushes – and boot kicked him in. Not true. I rolled him under the plants. By the next morning, he was gone. He did, however, leave some soily reminders of his visit to my truck – along with indicators he might not have been acting alone. My hood and front

Fish Story

It was high tide and the huge shark seemed to be interested in that fluke-heavy cut right next to the beach. Hey, there’s many a shark that loves fluke, especially sand tigers. I’m guessing it might show again. BUGGY BANTER: I took part in a minor dig-out on the beach on Friday. A smaller, Wrangler-type Jeep had gone a-bog. A fellow who knows how to drive the beach had carefully dropped his tires to 15 psi – and confidently zipped on. He didn’t make it far before he had buried the rear part of the Jeep’s chassis. He had forgotten to put the Jeep into 4WD. That hit kinda close to home. I’ll bet I’ve done that over a dozen times. However, in his instance, his buggy had meaty, all-terrain tires, with enough bite to gnaw through granite. Before he could detect the 2WD under sight, the rear tires bulldogged into the sand. Futilely spinning tires marked his arrival in downtown Bogsville. Say “Hey” to the pharmacist there for me. His sinkage looked to be a simple pullout matter but it took an odd turn, becoming a heartto-heart matter. Another buggyist had stopped a tad before me to help the fellow, handing him a shovel. As I walked up, the stuckee had already begun to dig but I immediately had an eerily bad feeling. I all but grabbed the shovel away and volunteered to assume digging duty. I was immediately thanked and rather calmly told by the fellow he had just had quadruple bypass surgery. I kid you not. We’re talking only days before. But damn if he wasn’t about to take responsibility for his buggying blunder by digging for all he was worth. It’s the thought that counts, my friend. And it ends in a heartbeat. Gimme the frickin’ shovel. As is often the case, a couple other vehicles stopped. The available manpower went through the ceiling, as some muscle joined the extraction team. For my part, I did a fair spurt of digging. No biggy. I actually enjoy the hell outta digging, always have. Others also moved sand from beneath the hung-up frame. The small Jeep was fairly quickly ready for a gang push. After some serious heaving, it broke free. The loosed buggyist stopped a short distance away, got out and offered a deep thank-you bow. He noticed we had all worked up a bit of a pant. Looking over at us he said, “Hey, if anybody needs some nitro pills, I got plenty.” I laughed all the way off the beach.

Top College Continued from Page 38 unknown college in a rural area. “Centre College in Kentucky,” said Goodman, “is a lovely school but not many people around here know about it.” Indeed, Centre College is one of the Princeton Review’s “Best 376” colleges (out of 1,571 reviewed in 2012). It will host the 2012 Vice Presidential debate! But it also had a 71 percent admissions rate in 2010, being, as it is, a “hidden” school. “Centre College is an excellent opportunity in terms of education,” said Goodman. “The question is whether or not it is an excellent social opportunity.” There are quite a few colleges out there like Centre. “The lower the name recognition of the school, the more incentives they offer,” said Goodman. “Who has heard of Juniata College in Pennsylvania?” he asked. Just two people out of the audience of about 20 had. Which is a shame, considering Juniata is another “Top 376” school with a 71 percent admissions rate in 2010. The admissions rate of the University of Pennsylvania, by way of comparison – 12 percent; Villanova – 44 percent. One father attending the program said his son had applied to eight colleges and had been accepted at seven. Fordham had offered an almost total merit package; Boston University had offered $10,000. But his son didn’t want to attend Fordham because, coming from North Jersey, he felt like he’d be going to school in his backyard. Where the kid really wanted to go was Villanova but even with negotiating (“BU will give us… Fordham will give us…”) Villanova had offered no financial incentive. “That’s because Villanova is a very popular school,” said Goodman. “It has sports, a pretty campus, location. Why should Villanova negotiate?” Parents and students, said Goodman, should “expand their limits” and consider schools such as Centre College. “We’re not talking Zambia,” he joked. “It’s a little out of range for New Jersey but it’s not that far out of range.” Public, Private As mentioned earlier, some public universities can be found in the list of Top 100 schools, and not just Michigan. Public schools, said Goodman, have a much more complicated admissions picture than private universities. A school like Michigan, said Goodman, just as most colleges and universities, prizes diversity. But it is a taxpayer-supported school, and taxpayers and politicians don’t like seats being

Surf City Continued from Page 41 Collins, as well as the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicle Driving Manual on pages 75 and 76. Connors contends, and Collins confirmed, that a curb painted yellow has no bearing or official capacity in conjunction with New Jersey state law that would warn a driver to not park in that space. “It signifies nothing,” Connors said. “To put a man out with a bucket of paint, and painting the curb yellow so maybe they won’t park there – or maybe they will park there – is just a waste of money.” Mike Nichols, owner of Anchor Produce on Long Beach Boulevard, was next to weigh in. “I think it’s a great idea to paint the curbs yellow. People don’t know they can’t park there. I watch people all day long with absolutely no regard to what this law is. Surf City has got a terrible reputation for these tickets that are being constantly written. Customers up and down the Boulevard are being harassed with hit-and-run tactics by the police department. I see it all day. I don’t think it’s fair to your customers, I don’t think it’s fair to your local residents, and it’s something you should change because it’s just an out of control situation. They’ll see that yellow line, they’ll know not to park there; most reasonable people would.” Local resident Georgia Dixon agreed. “I have the same problem. I’ve lived all over the

given to out-of-staters, especially if they need a merit package. And the out-of-state tuition at many top-tier public schools approaches that of prestigious private colleges. So, said Goodman, it is easier to be accepted at a fine, out-of-state public university but more difficult to be awarded merit scholarships. “There is a tension,” he said. Interestingly – and no student or parent brought it up at Goodman’s talk; this reporter asked him after the program ended – a golden opportunity to receive a fine education and a huge financial break exists north of the border. Tuition at even some of the best schools in Canada runs about half that of colleges and universities in the U.S., and Canadian schools also seek diversity. “Canada actually has a government agency that tries to attract students from the U.S. to Canada,” said Goodman. “And it has some fine schools: the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, McGill.” Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, where McGill University is located, are world-class cities offering outstanding cultural and social opportunities. And, as Goodman said, they are highly-regarded academic schools. So why don’t more Americans take advantage of them? “Some kids and parents think Canada is a foreign country,” said Goodman. “It is, but not that foreign. Do you know the University of Toronto is closer to, oh, Baltimore (using the example of a city at the southern fringe of the Northeast), than Chicago?” True, and by a long shot. The driving distance between Baltimore and The Windy City is 604 miles while just 460 miles on the road separate Baltimore and Toronto. It all goes back to Goodman’s advice: “expand your limits.” Finally, though, is it all worth it? Is fighting to get into a Top 100 school, and scrimping to come up with money for one, all worth it? As shown earlier, a college degree is generally thought to add a half-million to a million dollars of income over the course of a lifetime. Does graduating from a Princeton or Harvard or Michigan or Virginia add even more? Goodman said he knew of no such study. The closest he’d found was a study that compared the income of students who had been accepted at a Top 100 school and then chose not to attend. The study showed very little income difference 10 and 20 years later between those students and students who footed the bill for attending a “Top” school. Which makes sense, said Goodman. If a kid has grades and extracurriculars good enough to get into an Ivy League school but attends, oh, Rutgers instead (which by the way makes the “Top 376” cut) and excels there, is an employer not going to pay attention? “The cream always rises to the top,” said Goodman. Y world. Almost any place I’ve been, where there’s a yellow line you do not park there.” “You want to pay more taxes?” Connors asked. “I would,” said Dixon. “Well, I disagree with both of you,” concluded the mayor. In the month of August alone, Surf City police issued 252 parking tickets while 27 tickets were given for moving violations. They include state-enforced parking statutes calling for drivers to park at least 25 feet away from crosswalks and intersections, and to face the vehicle in the same direction as traffic moves. Both violations cost $54. A third local parking ordinance that makes it illegal to park past town signage close to beach entrances costs violators $32. Parking too close to intersections also raises a safety issue, as pointed out by McGurkin, who learned of the Manahawkin Boy Scouts in need of an Eagle Scout project when he met their leader at the 2012 Memorial Day Service in Surf City. “If you’ve got cars right up against the curb and you’re coming down a side street, they’re in direct line-of-view of you turning. In addition, I’ve seen emergency vehicles that couldn’t make the turn because there were cars parked illegally. They had to go around the block to do it. If they had the 25-foot gap painted, traffic would flow more.” “The whole reason for the ordinance is safety,” said Councilman William Hodgson, who gives monthly reports from Surf City police.

Hype-Heavy Swells Give Way to Closer, Home-Brewed Surf I have to admit that some of us are really excited right now. There’s no checking Hurricane Track, Tropical Wunderground, the National Hurricane Center website or Stormpulse three times a day. No one is talking about fetch, window periods, closed circulations or swell windows. Frank “Storm” Field and Glenn “Hurricane” Schwartz have stopped yammering about the “big swells that will be arriving at the Jersey Shore. Even better, Jim Cantore and Al Roker aren’t embracing on a windy street in New Orleans right now as they did during Isaac, the dual celeb meteorologists claiming they had to hold onto each other in the face of the tempest to deliver the report. I thought they looked kinda cute … There are no folks in Medford, Manayunk, Montclair or Manhattan making plans to load funshapes with neon wax on the roof of a Beamer and come to LBI. There are no convertible coups with a longboard sticking out of the drivers seat, driven by a fella wearing a rash guard and a cowboy hat either. (True story.) There are no hurricanes marching toward our swell window. No one is posting storm trajectories on Facebook. (I’m not guilty of that, I post right to The SandPaper website.) There are no tropical storm warnings for the Caribbean. TWC Tropical Specialist Carl Parker says we’re coming up on a “quieter period” in the Atlantic Basin. Hurricane season is not over. At least, we hope it’s not. But the hype is. And in all likelihood, if we do get another swell of tropical origins, the cooling water and air will bring less attention to it. So why are we kind of jazzed up? Because in the middle of this week, we are supposed to get a storm. It won’t have a name. It won’t have quadrants, an eyewall, or outflow. It will come from the Great Lakes region and slip past us, delivering rain and wind. There will not be waves coming from 500 miles away. “I have to admit, I’m ready for a no-hype windswell,” a friend texted me this week. So am I. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good hurricane swell. But as has been the topic of conversation so often in this column lately, they tend to shut down. I hear people talk about how good the waves are – “It was soooo sick man, five foot and offshore!” Yeah, but did you ride any of them or did you take off on 35 closeouts? “Ummmm, (pulling sand from his teeth) I made one.” There have been some really good days in there, but on many occasions, there are just a few breaks working. Sure, this South End spot may have held it for a while, or this one jetty was firing for a day, but when the rest of the Island is unridable, those spots get jammed up faster than an Obama fundraiser at Beyonce’s house. You have every LBI surfer, plus maybe a

few fellas from Ocean City or Seaside, looking for a line. Then you throw all those seasonal surfers into the mix and you have a lot of fighters and very few bulls. So as I am writing this, the wind is blowing 40-knots from the south and our local waters are raging into a good, old-fashioned windswell with northwest winds. Of course, we won’t know if it wound up being any good until after The SandPaper has gone to print, but we can only hope that by the time you’re wrapping up your recently caught blackfish in Liquid Lines, we’ve had a day of peaks and peelers. The Hurricane Leslie swell, which lasted a full eight days, finally backed off last Thursday. That was one of these stellar September days we’ve been having and there were still some fun, glassy little longboard waves out there. Friday was the first day without waves since sometime in August. And Saturday, the waves came up a little bit. Sunday was a very typical groundswell, which is better than no swell. All these waves in the waist- to headhigh range in nice warm water have been a treat. The breaks that have some kind of jetty to set up the sand were better. I have heard of a few places that were smoking racetracks with long lefts, but for every one of those golden nooks were miles of beaches that were dumping and crummy. Monday morning was nice and clean again. That high tide was a bit unfortunate, however, as glassy lines rolled right past the sandbar and exploded on the beach. Eventually the tide went out enough for a few peeling waves on the South End. It was pretty fun, as I watched surfers like Tom Beatty, Brendan Glynn, Allie Panetta, as well as ripping LBI native Justin Citta, all out enjoying some absolutely blissful September weather. There were a few fun ones in Surf City and Ship Bottom from the reports I got. And then the southeasterly breeze turned it to junk. It should be noted that proper “summer” ends this week. That does mean an increase in swell, but it also means stronger winds in every direction. In the summer, the wind comes up at 10 a.m. and howls from the southeast at 2 p.m. But it usually dies down by evening. Don’t expect too many evening glass-offs for the next nine months. We’re now at the mercy of real weather. Offshore winds can be offshore gales and we won’t be surfing too many onshore days for a while. I spoke with Ship Bottom Beach Patrol’s Johnny Skolnick, who said the lifeguards had their work cut out for them with rips pulling swimmers out to sea on Sunday. Every fall, beachgoers jump in the warm ocean, and every fall, there are multiple rescues in hurricane swell. One spot at 15th Street was pulling swimmers out, off the sandbar and back around in a loop to the south. He told me he was up and down the beach, even going beyond the Ship Bottom borders, on distress calls all day. And in almost every instance,

MX-Surfing Event Gets to Core Of LBI Surfing CORE TALENT: 15 of the Island’s top waveriders took to shoulder-high, variable-wind waves in the inaugural riding of the MX-Surfing LBI Core Challenge, presented by Surf Unlimited on Sunday in south Beach Haven. Competing in head-to-head heats, the contest’s ‘skins’ format had cash prizes shared among top finishers in each heat. Heat winners worked their way to a final pairing for first place. This year’s winner was Royce Weber of Surf City. Photographs by Jack Reynolds there was a surfer pulling the swimmer out of the water when he arrived. “Surfers are the best lifeguards in the off-season,” he told me before he went styling down the line on another Holgate left on his day off. “I love seeing that.” As long as the water stays warm, let’s keep an eye out for swimmers who get in over their heads. In other comp news, LBI’S own Kyle Calandra went up to Sea Bright last week and entered the 2012 Skim Bash Pro division. And the kid won it, taking home $800. Not only that, but he officially became a pro rider for Exile Skimboards. “I’ve been doing contests for a couple years as an amateur and I thought it was time to try and step up and go pro. I wanted to wait to do it in my home state of New Jersey, so I did,” he explained. “I grew up on Long Beach Island, went to school here, kindergarten to sixth grade, and I wouldn’t want to grow up anywhere else. The best part about the Sea Bright Contest were the waves, perfect chest high waves lining down the beach. I was so happy to walk up and see waves. No one could use the excuse that they didn’t make it because the waves sucked, including me,” he added with a chuckle. “Everyone was super happy for me, and the support from everyone over the years makes me even happier. I just want to thank Felicia Stratton for running

the contest. She did an awesome job and is one of the coolest moms ever. Donny Miller, my childhood mentor from Surf Shack South, my mom and dad, plus all my friends – thank you.” Down at the ESA Eastern Surfing Championships on the Outer Banks, Manahawkin’s Kali Emery made a few rounds in the Women’s Division before finally ending her run in the semis. Congrats to Kali for finishing equal fifth this year on the whole East Coast. Last week, I was discussing the recent competitive success of Royce Weber of Surf City. Well, he’s proving to not be a flash in the pan. Weber just won the inaugural MX-Surfing LBI Core Challenge presented by Surf Unlimited on Sunday in Beach Haven. The contest, featuring 15 of LBI’s best surfers – a few invited and a few who had qualified in an event last spring – surfed in what’s known as a “skins” event wherein the winning surfer of each heat takes some of the cash purse. It’s borrowed from golf, so I don’t know too much more about it. “I would have watched every single heat on pay-per-view,” said event director Chris Kretzer. “You had man-on-man heats of Shawn Dodds vs. Mike Roth, Randy Townsend vs. Royce Weber. I had to surf against Tim Raimo. It was just so cool to watch those match-ups.” The day started with inconsistent glassy waves in the shoulder-high

range. It got smaller as the day progressed and the wind was variable. By the final, it went back onshore. “It doesn’t sound great, but it was pretty legit waves for a contest,” stated Weber. And Weber certainly earned it, as he beat some of the very best LBI surfers to have ever put their feet on a surfboard: Pete Machotka in the quarterfinals, Conor Willem in the semis and Randy Townsend in the finals. And while there weren’t the heaving barrels that everyone might have hoped for, it became a duel of aerial assaults. “I don’t like to beat my friends,” Weber admitted with a laugh, “but I would rather beat them than lose to them.” I would be irresponsible as a journalist if I didn’t report that there was a good deal of controversy between the contest and some Holyoke surfers who were not thrilled at having to cede their favorite break. The Core Challenge did have a permit, granted by the town of Beach Haven. The police, whose help Kretzer said he appreciated, deemed that the permit did not give them rights beyond the sand. It is understandable that a surfer might not want to be barred from his beach during an event. But then again, it was just for locals. Any resident who was truly concerned might take Continued on Page 49

any closer to banning these ecosystem choking hazards, but there has been an interesting development. Back in 2007, the San Fran Board of Supervisors voted to be the first U.S. city to ban plastic tote bags from stores. Of course, folks there either bring their own bags or use paper. Well, this week a group called “Save the Plastic Bag Coalition” brought a lawsuit to have the ban repealed, mostly on the argument that alternative bags don’t meet “health and sanitation” standards. Not very long-term thinkers in that group. But then again, they are mostly comprised of the individuals from the plastics industry. Anyway, the court decided that

Enjoy Your Own

the ban would not be overturned. And now the ban has more teeth, banning the bags from all stores and restaurants, instead of just supermarkets and such. Plus, it instated a 10-cent price on paper bags. Score one for the smart guys. Now, anyone around here want to see if we can catch the plastic ban wave? Here are your upcoming events: On Sept. 28, Jetty and Farias will host the Swell Come Again Party at Joe Pop’s. This should be a pretty rocking event with local band Triumph and Tragedy and Atlantic City’s Jumpship on the bill. And DJ MCDEV, who went from spinning crabcakes to spinning records this year. There is a surf

film promised, giveaways and very likely some random slam dancing. Look for the new Triumph self-titled EP out soon as well. The 6th Annual Jetty Clam Jam waiting period starts Oct. 13. But this event is somewhat “on call” for starting that day and any weekend after. The event has been moved back to Harvey Cedars, so hopefully we’ll see some sand shift around at Hudson Avenue in the next few weeks. There is one little change this year and that is that there will not necessarily be as many surfers. Jetty is going to let all who sign up compete, but will not be holding anyone’s hand to fill 132 spots. This might mean fewer heats

with eight heads in the water for the later rounds. The moral of the story is: be sure you sign up on time; no one is going to chase you down this year. Man, am I looking forward to chunky surf and clams. As for surf, there are no hurricanes on the horizon. Don’t be surprised to see one or two October doozies, though. But more immediately, we’re looking at some east windswell building on Saturday with some 20-mph winds, thanks to some serious high pressure building in. This could get fun on Sunday if things clean up. That would make for two windswells in a week, and if all pans out, a very solid September. Y

I know MX-Surfing has run two events at Holyoke, but they were during colder water last fall and spring, and there was no pushback. I'm not saying either side was right or wrong. Hope it all works out and there are no lasting fissures in the surf community. The organization will hold its next surfing event as part of the next Moto-Surf contest on Oct. 14, 20 or 21.

Volleyball Continued from Page 43 The loss shouldn’t have been that surprising. Marlboro, after all, had been one of the previous teams to tag the Rams with a SC loss, in last year’s conference tournament final no less (although Southern earned revenge two weeks later in state tourney play). Still, Eric Maxwell’s Rams traditionally get off to a great start. He wasn’t, he said, upset with the loss. Usually one of his toughest jobs with his teams later in their seasons is battling overconfidence and he doesn’t mind a loss or two – he is more concerned with winning state championships than having undefeated seasons. This one just happened a little – OK, a lot – earlier than usual. His charges seemed to have learned from the loss to Marlboro. The Rams followed up with a 25-6, 25-13 romp over Toms River East and a 25-16, 26-24 win over Jackson. Then on Sept. 14, playing Toms River South, the only other Shore Conference team besides Marlboro to have ever slain the SC giant, they showed they could play when their backs were against the wall. South was giving Southern a hard time – the Rams won the first set but only by a 25-23 count and then TRS beat Southern, 25-18, in the second set. Southern eked out a 25-23 victory, not pretty but confidence-inspiring nonetheless. The Rams looked firmly in control in their first match of a tri-meet at Southern on Saturday. They cruised past Moorestown in the first set, 25-16, and put the match away in the second, 25-22. The girls then looked as if they were going to give North Hunterdon, the seventh-ranked team in all of the Garden State (Southern is currently ranked 16th) serious trouble. North Hunterdon prevailed in the first set, but only by a 25-23 margin. The Rams fought even harder in the second set, posting a 25-18 victory. But the Lions roared back, taking the match with a 25-16 win in the final set. Will a second loss truly kick-start the Rams? Will they be like the 2011 Giants and get on a roll that will propel them to the Promised Land? Time will tell. After observing Southern on Saturday it appears to this reporter that this is a team that will suffer more losses in the regular season but, like last year’s Giants, peak come

Surf City Continued from Page 46 “That’s why we vigorously enforce the law.” “When the (traffic) lights are on, really the traffic lights are to have smart drivers use them to get onto the Boulevard and into traffic,” added Councilman Peter Hartney. “I know when the summer starts, I gotta go to 19th Street to go north. And that’s the purpose of the traffic lights, as another safety benefit.” Connors added that painting curbs yellow would encourage drivers to park anywhere there is not a curb that is still within the 25-foot vicinity of an intersection. “Doesn’t that send a message to every place where there isn’t a curb to park wherever you want? So all of a sudden you’re setting in the motorist’s mind that it only applies where the curb is painted.” Newly elected Surf City Taxpayers Association President Mike Ippolito spoke with The SandPaper following the meeting. He called the issue of drivers being unaware of the law and the hazards it poses to public safety and local businesses one of the top issues taxpayers

state playoff time. Last year’s Rams finished with a 25-7 record, falling to Hunterdon Central in the state quarterfinals. Not great – Maxwell always hopes for a state championship like the team won in 2008 – but not bad considering Southern was in what the coach said was a “bit of a rebuilding season.” “We were very young last year, but still managed to get to the quarters,” said Maxwell at the beginning of this season. “We are hoping that the experience gained will enable us to take another step or two this season.” Well, the Rams are still a relatively young team. True, Maxell isn’t playing a couple of sophomores as he did in 2011, but four of the six starters on Saturday were still juniors. Hey, they are getting off to a better start, 4-2, than they did last year when they were 3-3 after six matches. Still, they seemed a bit tentative on Saturday, especially when it came to court awareness, trying to play some North Hunterdon smashes that would have gone long by two or more feet and deciding not to play some Lion lobs that fell in by a full foot. So the girls aren’t there quite yet, although Southern clearly looked like a team that will improve as the season grinds on. A solid victory over a ranked team, such as happened last fall when the Rams defeated Cherokee after losing to them earlier in the season, could give them the boost they need. There’s no doubt the team has plenty of raw talent. Southern is strong in the middle, with senior Kelsie Blue (154 blocks and 63 kills in 2011) and junior Cece Hodgson (136 kills and 60 blocks last season). Note they are scoring threats as well as blockers, so when you toss in senior outside hitter Brittany Fortner, who had 134 kills in 2011, you have a balanced scoring attack, giving junior setter Alex Andriani (382 assists in last year’s campaign) plenty of weapons from which to choose. The defense is led by another junior who racked up plenty of minutes last year, libero Marina Felmly (172 digs a year ago). If promising juniors Emily Miglin, an outside hitter, Megan Wilk, another outside hitter, and Carly DellaValle, a right-sider, develop, the Rams will be a handful come October. Expect the Rams to go deep into the NJSIAA playoffs. Indeed, expect them to go on a roll soon. They’ve already had their reality check. Twice. Y have this year in a list compiled annually by the organization. A taxpayer association meeting on Sept. 28 at the Surf City firehouse will attempt to rally support for such issues, to be presented to the borough council at a future meeting. “That’s one of three or four initiatives I’m hoping to get into,” said Ippolito. “I totally expect the group will support my ideas.” Though he admits more research must be done on the issue, Ippolito offered what he has witnessed personally. “I see it all the time: visitors that are walking out into the street and how close so many people come to getting hit by a car. In my mind, even if it’s legally binding or not, a yellow-painted curb is going to alert some or most people to not park here. It’s going to move us in the right direction: Fewer cars are going to be ticketed, businesses will be happy, and people will be safer.” Mike Horan, spokesman for the N.J. Motor Vehicle Commission, confirmed that local municipalities can make their own ordinances for restricting parking, for example in yellow curb areas. — Michael Molinaro


Early Childhood Continued from Page 40 The costs to run the facility – teachers, utilities, etc. (estimated at $11,000 per child) – are being paid for through the New Jersey Department of Education’s Division of Early Childhood Education. The division’s Vincent Costanza said he recognizes the importance of what Little Egg Harbor has accomplished. “I find Little Egg Harbor to be an absolute model of what preschool should be in the state,” said Costanza. “And though we celebrate the opening of a building today, we know it’s the relationships that occur within the walls that are important. Thanks to all the people who have made the building worthy of occupancy.” Kasyan asked George J. Mitchell Principal Constance Fugere, Early Childhood Center Supervisor Patricia DeGeorge and the preschool teachers to stand for applause. 9th District Assemblyman Brian Rumpf said he had come from the opening of Stockton’s satellite campus in Manahawkin that morning and was happy to end the day in the dedication of the preschool in the afternoon. “What a wonderful preschool we have right here at home, and this building is a credit to all the people who worked to make it a reality. This is something special.” Township Mayor John Kehm said he was

raised in Little Egg Harbor and attended the George J. Mitchell Elementary School. Now his daughter attends preschool in the district. “It’s wonderful to see her come home with a smile on her face. She loves her teacher, and the stuff (projects made in school) she brings home is just great. This puts her on a path to succeed and is what I want for my children and all the children of Little Egg Harbor.” With more than 9,000 square feet the school is as big as a football field, said Joe McDermott, project supervisor for Gray Hawk Construction, Moorestown. Site construction started in February. The modular classrooms were constructed off-site in a factory and then put together. But the difference between these modular classrooms and the modular classrooms that they replaced is big, said, McDermont. “They are constructed of steel and are on a solid foundation that should last 50 years or more.” The architect was William Edwards of Edwards Engineering Group, Somerville. Each classroom can hold up to 15 children in any preschool classroom. In 2011, the district had 27 preschool classrooms and 384 students but is expected to grow. Creating the new facility is part of the district’s five-year plan and frees up classroom space in the two K-6 elementary schools, George Mitchell and the Frog Pond School. — Pat Johnson

LEH Reassess

The pagoda-type shelters will be popping up at existing bus stops on Mathistown Road by the Ocean County Library branch and the intersection with Center Street, at Oak Lane across from the McDonald’s, at the intersection of Oak Lane and Center Street near the Great Bay Regional EMS building, at the intersection of Oak Lane and Radio Road, and on Radio Road in front of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church. Although they are no cost to the township, the township will have to maintain them. Last but not least, Police Chief Richard Busby accepted a $1,000 check for the Great Bay Police Athletic League from Italian American Club President Joe Giuliano. Buzby thanked the IAC and said donations of this sort from various organizations in the community have helped create many programs for thousands of children in the area, “children that would not have been helped without the generosity of organizations and businesses.” — Pat Johnson

Tidal Valves

installed in any type of pipe, operate on differential pressure, are virtually maintenance-free and have a 25-year life expectancy, the website states. The CheckMate also, said Tingle, has the lowest head loss – the measure of the reduction in the total pressure of liquid as it moves through a system – of any product Tideflex manufactures. Florimont hopes to see a Checkmate valve in Beach Haven soon. “My selling point (in approaching Island officials) has always been look, these are in use,” and, as he concluded through his surveys, there have been no complaints about their functionality, but rather the opposite, as all the town officials in various states with whom he spoke declared complete satisfaction with the devices. “Is it the perfect solution for flooding?” Bethea asked rhetorically. “No,” as a perfect solution does not likely exist. “But it’s better than it was. I think they have been helpful.” — Juliet Kaszas-Hoch

Continued from Page 40 Committeeman Gene Kobryn announced that recycling efforts in Little Egg Harbor have paid off in an increase from 49 percent in 2010 to 66 percent in 2011. “The ease of co-mingled recycling and the efforts of the citizens resulted in a great job,” he said. According to figures released by the county, Little Egg Harbor recycled 26,829 tons, keeping that amount out of the landfill. Committeeman Art Midgley announced the annual, free document-shredding-day is set for Friday, Oct. 19, from 9 a.m to noon in front of the Senior Center on Radio Road. Riders of public buses will be a lot dryer and warmer when the New Jersey Transit Authority installs six new bus shelters this autumn. Assistant Business Administrator Michael Fromosky worked with NJTA to get the shelters, which will be paid for and installed by NJTA.

Continued from Page 36 “The valves have been used for many, many years,” said Ed Florimont, owner of Fantasy Island in Beach Haven, who has long encouraged the borough to consider installation of tidal valves. “I’ve been researching this for 15 years.” In 2009, Florimont made repeat calls to towns up and down the East Coast that use the valves – including nearby North Wildwood as well as places such as Salisbury, Md., and Lewes, Del. – to ask if the towns were completely satisfied with the valves, which all were, he noted. “Atlantic City uses them and is perfectly satisfied with them. … They work.” Florimont, a Holgate resident who also owns houses in Beach Haven for his Fantasy Island staff, referenced the science of climate change and the resulting sea level rise as reason for all the Island municipalities to consider installing tidal valves – as he sees flooding only getting worse over time. Tingle, who said Red Valve sells these devices all over the world, explained the company does still offer the Tideflex TF-1 Curved Bill Check Valve, installed externally, as well as the “latest and greatest” CheckMate Inline Check Valve, which is installed “inside the pipe. No one ever sees it. No one’s going to run into it with a boat.” The latter product’s “custom-engineered, all-rubber uni-body design eliminates costly backflow from oceans, rivers and interceptors,” states the website The valve, available in 4-inch to 72-inch sizes, “has a 100 percent fabric and elastomer construction that eliminates corrosion problems. Because the CheckMate is made with a uni-body construction, there are no mechanical components to catch debris, corrode or fail.” CheckMate Inline Check Valves are easily


Continued from Page 36 “If I could have gone to a conservatory, I would definitely have done that,” she added. “The conservatory is strictly for community, but it’s not limited to just Stafford or Manahawkin. I had people calling from Lacey, and I said, ‘Bring everybody down here.’ It’s supposed to be affordable for all of us, and if you’ve talked to Kelly (Harris), you know her passion for this place is remarkable,” she added. Classes at STAC’s conservatory run from Oct. 1 to June 30. Registration is ongoing. For more information, visit or dial 609-489-8600. — Kelley Anne Essinger

Continued from Page 45 Then, instead of undertaking a fairly advanced in-field hook removal, he went the extra mile(s) and rushed the weakened shorebird all the way over to Barnegat Animal Clinic. He found salvation at the clinic. In Jim’s words, “These have to be the greatest people on the planet. Even though they had a packed office on a busy Saturday afternoon, they let crazy old me bring in a Herring Gull, and they fixed him up like new. They were genuinely happy to do so and sincerely sympathetic to poor little CheezIt’s situation. They refused to accept any money for what they did. I strongly suggest you send these people extravagant gifts and thank you cards for all they do and their willingness to do it. I know I’m going to.” The eventually released CheezIt was a total success. The bird quickly settled down to munching itself to full recovery. You can get an amazing photo timeline of the rescue at Jim’s website. AFTERBEAK: Beak-hooked birds are the stuff of professional extractions. I was taught – and have oft performed – the proper and humane hook-removal method. The problem is it requires heavy-duty wire clippers or barb-flattening devices, to keep things minimally destructive. In an outback crunch, one can try a standard dehooking method, like that used on fish. However, birds are way less tolerant of such power hook removing. Unlike tough-mouthed fish, a bird’s beak is downright delicate, particularly if yanked to-and-fro, while being cursed at. Beak hinges only go up and down, not sideways. If that hinge goes belly-up, so goes the bird. Hopefully, I don’t have to remind anyone that you can’t just cut the line and leave a rig/ hook in a bird’s mouth, expecting it to “rot out,” vis-à-vis fish. When you’ve accidentally hooked any bird, you’ve involuntarily bonded – in both a kindly

and legal way. It becomes your responsibility to humanely free the animal, even if it means calling a cop or calling it a day and heading to a veterinarian. By the technical way, the word is vet-ERinarian, not vet-in-arian. It’s one of the most mispronounced words in the English language if I do say so myself. RUNDOWN: After offering panfishermen the best summer in years, if not decades, kingfish are about to move out. The ones remaining are large and meaty. Prioritize searching for them if you want to land one of the best-tasting fish along our shore. Bluefish have been spurting through our waters. The tailors (2- to 3-pounds) have shown up in huge numbers – an instant hookup per cast – but have totally disappeared just as quickly. Tiny snappers are ruling the roost. Too boring to target, per se. Bait fishing easily outfishes plugs. Small stripers are going for artificials. Overall, very low showing of bass due to this 70-degree water. I’m thinking next week or the following before bass in numbers arrive. Weakfishing is peaking. It’s restricted to bayside and inlets. Boat anglers could soon see the first schools of migrating weakies, off the water tower, south end. This year the stocks are so thick it becomes a yawner once you’re on the bite. Still, only one per angler. The biggest I’ve seen was 8 pounds. Fluking is running out. Not the fish but the season. However, the overall hooking has also slowed a bit. It won’t be gone for many weeks to come. Here’s a doormat blog from my website: As I was leaving Holgate, I saw Dante S. coming on the beach. Then I got this Facebook read – and ogled over the photo from Oceanside. I wouldn’t know what to do with a 10-pound fluke. Dante’s 10-pounder from the beach! Live mullet. Magic man lost a big one this morning then got it back tonight! Luckiest jerk I know! Val. Y

Fish Story

The SandPaper/Wednesday, September 19, 2012


War Hero Continued from Page 39 “There was a disk about 2 foot in diameter – I was hollering out in German, ‘Öffnen! Öffnen!’ Open! Open! So he opened it up and stuck his head out, and that was the first and last mistake he ever made. The damn thing must’ve landed in the ammunition basket.” The grenade exploded and launched him over to the other side of the road, leaving him stunned, covered in black soot and powder, and with ears ringing. The grenade normally would have had a longer fuse and given him enough time to escape, but less-than-perfect mass production at the time would cause the occasional grenade fuse to be shorter. “When it went off, my helmet went up in the air, and somebody thought it was my head. It was luck that it happened as it did, but if he had gone up ahead to where our battalion was, it could have done a lot of damage and caused a lot of problems. Fortunately that’s as far as he got. Nothing else could get past it. The damn thing was disabled. They wrote it up and gave me a Bronze Star for it, which was ridiculous; they all should’ve got something. “I was just lucky,” said Gutbrod. “I was no

Rambo. I got down in my foxhole with the best of them. The men that really did the job are still over there. It’s a shame – we lost so many of our young people.” During World War II, which was the deadliest military conflict in history, 416,800 U.S. military were killed. Gutbrod eventually received an early discharge for earning more than 85 points within a system that awarded soldiers for months in the service, months overseas, declarations and battle stars. “On May 8 when the war ended, there were about a dozen from my regiment that exceeded that. When we got back home, nobody knew anything about the G.I. Bill of anything.” With the creation of the Air Force, Gutbrod found work in 1947 as a sergeant stationed at Newark Airport, where he stayed until 1962, retiring with just more than 20 years of military service. Years later, at age 91, Gutbrod finally received his medals. “I didn’t think I’d live to see 23,” he said. “You gotta be young for that crap. “I had all the paperwork and never got the medals for some reason. You pick up the paper every day hearing about a guy getting his medals from 60 or 70 years ago, and here I am almost 70 years later getting mine.” Gutbrod believes his records may have

been destroyed in the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Records Center during which approximately 16 million and 18 million official military personnel files were destroyed including 80 percent of those from Army personnel discharged between Nov. 1, 1912 and Jan. 1, 1960, according to Gutbrod thanks the work of people such as Ocean County Freeholder Gerry P. Little, Surf City Councilman Peter Hartney and family members, whom he credits for assisting in the eventual acquisition of his medals. In addition to the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star, Gutbrod was also presented with the Presidential Unit Citation, the EuropeanAfrican-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 at the ceremony that the county had 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. Despite all his accolades, the business of war has made Gutbrod a conscientious objec-

tor over time. “Combat is kind of mixed up, it’s utter chaos and then things quiet down for awhile. Infantry fighting is rough business and I wouldn’t advise it for anybody. “It’s made a pacifist out of me, believe me. It’s a dirty, rotten business. The whole damn business, I see no reason for it. The next time I’d like to see the politicians and the manufacturers all put into a stadium and each given a club. Let them beat the hell out of each other and whoever’s left is the winner, not sacrifice the lives of our young people and our national treasure. This business in Iraq and Afghanistan – I just don’t understand the country anymore. These people have been fighting with each other since the beginning of time. You’re not gonna change that – it’s all tribal. The British at Khyber Pass gave up the ghost years ago. They realized they couldn’t do anything with them. That’s all part of that part of the world. “I have a granddaughter that just enlisted in the Army now. It bothers me. She’s 22 and there’s not much you could do about it. She says, ‘Grandfather, there’s no more boys in the family so somebody has to make the tradition,’ so she goes. She goes, ‘I’m gonna follow in your tracks,’ I said, ‘I hope not. Find a good job as a quartermaster!’” Gutbrod admitted he told his granddaughter, Laura, while laughing. “She wouldn’t even talk to me. She’s studying advanced infantry training at Fort Hood, Texas. “I just think all this nonsense should stop, that we could find a way to keep our boys home rather than overseas. You got to be careful what you say, though, nowadays. They’ll think I’m a communist, but I’m far from it.” Y

inosaurs Rock,” an interactive museum exhibit and show featuring the personal fossil and mineral collection of renowned paleontologist Neil Brown, will be held at the Stafford Township Arts Center on Saturday, Sept. 22. Playing off Brown’s own life-long fascination with fossils, the event is specially geared toward the child’s sense of wonder and imagination. More t h a n 1 0 0 different d i nosaur bones and minerals will be on display. “They’re bringing a 24-foot trailer with all of these specimens, and what they’re bringing with them is just unbelievable,” said STAC manager and conservatory director Kelly Harris. “They’re bringing a 9-foot-high, Ice Age mammoth leg. They’re bringing a life-size T-Rex skull, a (life-size) 7-foot triceratops skull (and) genuine dinosaur bones. They’re bringing fossils, different geodes that you can break open, and they’re even doing a fossil dig with the children (with fossils) that they can take home,” she explained. “The thing that’s amazing is normally you go to a museum exhibit and you look at these specimens, which is wonderful, but this is very interactive. So the kids get to understand what the specimens are and take them home with them. It’s extremely educational,” said Harris. A presentation on the Ice Age led by Brown will take place at noon and 3 p.m. The exhibit will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets cost $15 for adults and $12 for children. A family pack of four tickets costs $40, and $50 for a family pack of five. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 609-489-8600 or visit staffordschools.tix. com. —K.A.E.

he Ocean County Board of Freeholders, in conjunction with the county Department of Solid Waste Management, is again sponsoring its Residential Document Shredding Program this fall, to be held in multiple municipalities starting this month. “This program gives our residents an opportunity to shred old documents and personal papers safely and securely,” said Freeholder James F. Lacey, who serves as liaison to the county’s recycling program. “It costs nothing to use the program and it certainly helps to provide peace of mind.” Dates, times and local sites for the shredding program are as follows: Sept. 28, 9-11 a.m.: Long Beach Township Recycling Center, 7910 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach Oct. 6, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: Ocean County Southern Recycling Center, 379 Haywood Rd., Stafford Township Oct. 19, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: Little Egg Harbor Township Community Center, 319 West Calabreeze Way, Little Egg Harbor Nov. 2, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.: Ocean Township Town Hall, 50 Railroad Ave., Waretown The program is only open to county residents. Residents can attend any site, free of cost, and registration is not required. Participants can bring up to six boxes or bags of documents. For added ease, paper clips and staples do not have to be removed. Commercial documents will not be accepted, nor will X-rays, CDs, floppy disks, microfilm or file folders. As Lacey explained, the program is secure because the shredding units feature an automatic feeding and dumping system that eliminates human contact with residents’ documents. “This approach provides an added layer of security for our residents,” Lacey remarked. “Identity theft can cause havoc on a person’s everyday life,” said Freeholder Director Gerry P. Little. “We want to make sure important papers are gotten rid of properly so information cannot be stolen.” This past spring, more than 68 tons of papers were shredded through the county program. For more information, contact the Ocean County Department of Solid Waste Management at 1-800-55-RECYCLE. —J.K.-H.

Conch Blowers Going Guinness


on’t be surprised If you hear a strange sound late Saturday afternoon, Sept. 29, in the vicinity of the Things Adrift Store 406 Long Beach Blvd. in Ship Bottom. The business, along with Echoes of LBI, is attempting to set a Guinness Book of World Records mark for the most conch shells blown at the same time. “We need at least 300 adults to break the current record,” said Cheryl Kirby, Things Adrift and Echoes owner. “The current record is around 275.” The event is being held in conjunction with the Arts and Sea Glass festival at the store Sept. 29 and 30. It will include local artists, sea glass jewelry, photography, shard and fossil identification, book signings, demos and lectures. Kirby said registration and practice for the conch blowing begin at 2:30 p.m. while the record attempt begins at 4. Participants are welcome to bring their own conch, or can rent one at the store. A certificate of appreciation will be given on the day of the event. Participants will be contacted vie e-mail if the attempt is successful. She said conch blowing is similar to playing a bugle. “It doesn’t take a lot power,” she said. “It’s mostly focusing on getting the air into a specific spot.” She said most of the shells range in weight from 1 to 3 pounds. “It’s not the size that matters whether it is a low or high pitch,” said Kirby. “It depends on the size of the opening you blow in.” Kirby said that in addition, members of a group known as “the Conchquistadors” will drop by at 2 for some pointers and music. “You can make six notes with a conch,” said group member Walter Metzger. “And you can still your hand in the shell to control the sound much like you would do with a French horn. We like playing at street fairs and various spcial events.” For more information, contact Kirby at 609-3611668. —E.E. Holly Auxiliary of Southern Ocean County Hospital Foundation Meets, Ocean Twp.

ust in time for Halloween, the Tuckerton Seaport unveils an evening of murder and mayhem during a mystery dinner show with the guest of honor: New Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most notorious resident, the Jersey Devil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revenge of the Jersey Devilâ&#x20AC;? will be performed by The Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Co. on Friday, October 26, at 6 p.m. at Sea Oaks Country Club in Little Egg Harbor Township. The infamous Jersey Devil has made his appearance hundreds of times since his birth in the 18th century, but has never made as hilarious a showing as he will in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Revenge of the Jersey Devil.â&#x20AC;? The show is based on the earliest legends regarding Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s native demon: his celebrated birth to Mother Leeds in 1735, his birthplace in nearby Leeds Point, and allegations that his mother dabbled in witchcraft. Somehow a bear, a Canadian trapper and the only Puritans ever known to inhabit the Garden State also ďŹ gure in this screwball musical comedy. Pay attention through the laughter because one of the characters will be ruthlessly murdered, and, of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the audience to solve the crime. Prizes will be awarded to the ďŹ rst people who correctly guess the murderer and motive. Tickets for the dinner and show are $79. Overnight packages are also available at the Inn at Sea Oaks, beginning at $140 per person double occupancy, and include tickets to Haunted Seaport as well as discounts for local shopping, theater, dining and golf. For information and reservations, call Brooke at the Seaport at 609-296-8868 or e-mail BrookeS@ Additional details can be found at Proceeds from this dinner theater event will beneďŹ t the Seaportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational programs. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; P.J. etables, open salad bar, rolls and dessert.

GOTCHA!: In this photo by Herb Segars, a monkfish swallows a black sea bass at the Keel wreck located off the Jersey Coast.

Ocean County Library Program Explores Mysteries of the Deep


f you thought you had to go to the tropics to see gorgeous marine life, photographer Herb Segars says to think again. A diver for more than 30 years, Segars will present an assortment of colorful and intriguing sea life under the Atlantic waters on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 2 p.m. at the Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in a program sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Segars will be discussing and signing copies of his book, Beneath the Garden State: Exploring Aquatic New Jersey. He will also conduct a PowerPoint presentation featuring photos of unusual marine life not too far from Island beaches. “One of the most exciting experiences I had was seeing a monkfish sitting by a wreck,” he said. “It is a common reef fish. A black sea bass came by, and the monkfish ate it right there. It was unbelievable. There’s no way you can predict what you’ll catch, so to get the best pictures you have to be there at the right time.” Segars said the book, released last April by Schiffer Publishing of Atglen, Pa., has 230 photos containing varieties of fish, inverteTeen Dance for Grades 5-8, Lacey Elks Lodge, 900 Beach Blvd., Forked River (609-693-1281) The event is chaperoned.

brates, jellyfish, sharks, turtles, artifical reefs and shipwrecks. He said he would share anecdotes of some of his experiences while attempting to photograph marine life. “I remember floating on the surface while photographing a tiny lined sea horse,” said Segars. “As a photographer, I kept drifting away from the boat. When I looked up, I had a long swim back, but it was worth it.” He recalled another time when he and his wife, Veronica, were on a boat when a loggerhead turtle popped up next to the vessel. “I put my drysuit on and got into the water,” he recalled. “As soon as I did, the turtle dove underwater. I waited a few minutes and got back in the boat and got undressed. Five minutes later, the turtle came up next to the boat. I put my gear on, and as soon as I got in the water, it dove for the bottom. This happened five times before our timing got together. The turtle was as surpised to see me as I was to see it.” To register for the program, call the branch at 609-494-2480. —E.E. See website for schedule and ticket prices.

lthough it opened to serve adults with special needs in late July, the N.J. Institute of Disabilities will be holding a grand opening at its location at 311 South Main St. (Route 9) in Barnegat Township on Sunday, Sept. 30, from 2 to 4 p.m. It is one of 32 such facilities in the state affiliated with the institute, which until recently changing its name was known as the Cerebral Palsy Center of Middlesex County. Heather Snover, Barnegat facility manager, said the institute has 16 clients from Southern Ocean County and a staff of 10, which includes two nurses. “We also have staff members who work with clients who have behavorial issues,” she said. “Everything is closely supervised. But what is most important is that we work at improving various skills and helping them make the most of what they can do.” For example, she said the adults could be trained in computer skills or taught about how to have a bank account and write a check. The facility is open on weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. “We provide transportation to and from Sea Oaks Country Club, 99 Golf View Drive, Little Egg Harbor (609-296-2656 or Sat., Steve Richter, 7:30 pm.

Join Annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s n Saturday, Sept. 29, the Alzheimer’s Association holds its annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Little Silver Park in Point Pleasant Beach. Registration begins at 9 a.m.; the 3-mile walk steps off at 10. New to the event this year is a “Barnegat Believers” team from Home Instead Senior Care, located in Barnegat Township at 575 North Main St. in the Union Plaza. “We’re hoping our team can raise $2,500,” said Fran Pannella, the Barnegat facility’s community liaison and dementia educator. “The walk usually draws 2,000 people. I have participated in these walks in the past and am very excited about putting a team together from Home Instead. We can continue to raise funds into November.” Pannella noted that this year, Home Instead began an extensive training program, Alzheimer’s and Dementia CARE (Changing Aging Through Research and Education), for its home caregivers who serve Southern Ocean County. For example, one of the aspects of this 12-hour class is “Capturing Life’s Journey,” in which the caregiver can gather past stories and experiences to help him or her give comfort and customized care, all while honoring who the senior was earlier in life. “For some family members, they can feel

very overwhelmed,” said Debra Lavin, Barnegat franchise owner and registered nurse. “We want them to know they are not alone and there is support for you and your loved one.” In addition, Home Instead offers a dementia caregiver support group that meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 8:30 a.m. in the Barnegat Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 859 West Bay Ave. Meetings feature a light breakfast, guest speaker and discussion. “With this expanded focus on Alzheimer’s and dementia disorders, we certainly have to do what we can to give hope to future generations,” said Pannella. “We hope that staff, associates and family members can join us.” According to the Alzheimer’s Association web site, the walk is held in more than 600 communities nationwide. “The walk unites the entire community – family, friends, coworkers, social and religious groups and more – in a display of combined strength and dedication in the fight against this devastating disease,” the site said. “When you participate in the walk, your fundraising dollars fuel our mission-related initiatives of care, support and research.” For more information, call the local office of the Alzheimer’s Association at 732-8327818 or Home Instead at 609-607-1900. — Eric Englund

our place,” said Snover, who has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Georgian Court University. “Some of the people live in group homes, so they could be taught how to operate a microwave oven or how to set up lunch and to eat healthy foods. We also teach social skills and how to initiate contact.” Snover said the center keeps in close communication with families. “Sometimes we take our clients on outings, like a trip to the Barnegat Lighthouse,” she said. “We’ve also brought in therapy dogs. We like to have a variety of activities. Our place isn’t divided into classrooms; everything is done out in the open in one big room.” Venus Majeski, the institute’s director of development and community relations, said the grand opening will also include an open house. Light refreshments will be served. “Our philosophy has been to enhance the lives of special needs and maximize their abilities,” she said. “We want them to enjoy a dignfied day with us. We hope interested persons will stop by and give it a look.” — Eric Englund ericenglund@

Walk to Conquer Chiari This Saturday


ong Beach Island’s north end serves as a local site for the Conquer Chiari Walk Across America set for this Saturday, Sept. 22. Registration begins at 9 a.m. in the parking lot at Barnegat Lighthouse State Park, and the walk starts at 10 a.m. Registration is also available online, at Participation in the walk is free, but donations are welcome – $25 is suggested, with T-shirts for those who pledge this amount or more, on a first-come, first-served basis. Proceeds benefit research projects related to Arnold-Chiari malformation, a serious neurological disorder that affects 300,000 people in the United States. In 2011, as the web site notes, the event raised more than $405,000. This year’s goal is at least $450,000. According to Ann-Marie Hendrickson, southern New Jersey site organizer for the event, there are currently more than 5,000 individuals registered to walk at 55 sites in 34 states throughout the country. The route in Barnegat Light this year – the third year the municipality has played host to the Conquer Chiari event – takes place along the bay. No set distance or duration is required; participants are encouraged to walk as appropriate for their fitness level. As Hendrickson pointed out, DJ Bear will play music in the parking area for the duration of the event. There will also be a bake sale with donated items, and a “purple smoothie” table featuring blueberry-based smoothies made by volunteers. “Come on out and help us!” Hendrickson encourages residents and visitors to the area. For more information, contact Hendrickson at 609-384-1454 or, or visit conquerchiari. org. —J.K.-H.

MAINLAND TO ISLAND: Local residents and visitors are invited to walk the 3-mile course over the Causeway this Saturday to raise money for Southern Regional, Stafford and LBI schools.

Step Into Fall With Community Bridge Walk


he course is set for the third annual Community Bridge Walk on Sept. 22 over the Causeway from Mud City Crab House to the 10th Street boat ramp lot in Ship Bottom. Local residents, visitors, students, families and friends are invited to walk the three-mile course, which symbolizes the literal and symbolic connection between the Island and mainland communities. The walk benefits student enrichment programs at the Southern Regional, Stafford and LBI schools. Local PTA and special education groups facilitate the walk and members of Southern Regional High School’s Interact club serve as student volunteers. “Each year the crowd gets larger and the positive energy surrounding the event grows,” according to event co-planner Corinne Ruff. “Of the many fundraising events in our area for great causes, this cause, our students, is one of the greatest. Cultivating an educated, enlightened and compassionate student fosters the return path for a dedicated community member and in turn a great community.” The Interact Club, spearheaded by longtime Islander and board of education member Don Myers, was formed at the high school in 1989. The founding concept and vision was to encourage students to get more involved in the

community. Twenty-three years later, founding Interact members Corinne Ruff, Melanie Magaziner and Tracey Paulillo conceived the Bridge Walk. This year’s luau theme is enhanced by professional Polynesian dancers with the Hawaiian Luau Show performing on both sides of the Causeway. Stafford Township Police Officer Chris Fritz will sing the national anthem. KidZone cheerleaders will line the streets for the kickoff, and additional music is provided by MK Productions. The luau theme continues at the afterparty on the beach, sponsored by Surf Unlimited. Registration, distance and other course details are handled by South Jersey Running and Triathlon Co. The event is sponsored by the Causeway Family of Dealerships, the Van Dyk Group and Hager Advanced Vein Care. The walk takes about an hour. The total bridge distance is 2.1 miles. One lane of the Causeway is temporarily closed, but the bridge remains open to traffic. “Once you walk the Causeway, driving it never quite compares,” Ruff remarked.

It’ll be the only area appearance for the Wall Township-based taste sensation on wheels, and they had a good time last year when they served a smoky alternative to the traditional. So, Chowderfest is the chance for tasters to experience Southern Smoke-style chowder again, in the red chowder tent. It’s the tomatoes that are smoked, says Chef Brian Stefan. “We smoke the tomatoes that we get from area farm markets. It’s just enough smoke to where it’s a ƀavor that you kind of Tasters will find a hint of smoke flavoring the clams in Southern Smoke’s know what it is but it’s a little deeper.

LBI Towns Consider Tidal Valves to Help Manage Flooding Three Already Installed in Ship Bottom

W Jack Reynolds

It’s a Trap! Greenheads Be Gone, Residents Say GOTCHA: A number of box-style greenhead fly traps are grouped togther near Barnegat Bay in the Holgate section of Long Beach Township. The traps have a cover screen with a plastic collector attached. The flies are attracted to the dark color, then fly into the collector, where they eventually die.

hen a water main broke this summer near West 26th Street in Ship Bottom, a CheckMate Inline Check Valve inside a pipe there helped to control the flooding – a less common instance of this device’s function in an area of Long Beach Island known to flood quickly and signif icantly during storms and astronomical high tides. “It was doing its job,” Ship Bottom Administrator Rich Bethea said of the valve, which he believes is a useful component in flood management on the Island, a place that recurrently sees residents up to their knees in water, and puts officials in the position of figuring out how to best minimize the

Stafford Township Arts Center Hosts Open House Tour


he Stafford Township Arts Center’s new conservatory was buzzing with live workshops and performances of dance, music, visual arts and theater on Saturday afternoon during its free open house tour. “This is the big opening to bring all of this out into the community, which is really, really exciting,” said STAC manager and conservatory director Kelly Harris. “There are classes for people from 3 years old to seniors in every discipline of performing and visual arts, everything from photography to creative dance to violin and piano. So there’s pretty much something here for everybody. “It’s very much in cooperation with the local studios and local school programs, with the idea that these students would get an

Instructors Perform in Conservatory education that they can get into colleges with, like the Berklee College of Music and Juilliard. I actually even spoke with professors from Berklee, and I asked them what kinds of things students would need when they audition. So I got all that feedback and compiled it altogether to design these courses and then find the right teachers to teach them,” she added. “I hope to pass on my musical knowledge to the younger generation and put real musicians out into the world,” said vocal instructor Christina Skleros, 24, of Chatsworth, one of the conservatory’s 11 instructors. Gregory Foote, 7, from Manahawkin, showed up with his parents

Karen and Greg and his younger brother Andrew, 5, to look into piano lessons. “I like the piano because you get to make crazy music,” he exclaimed. Foote received a keyboard for his birthday and has always been musically inclined, according to his parents. They said he is always singing and can really carry a tune. He even whistles like a champ. “His favorite music comes from video games like the Mario Brothers and Star Wars,” said his mother. “He’ll download the music onto his iPod and let it play in the background when he plays with his toys. “He’s even picking up on some of his mom’s favorite

music like Pearl Jam,” she added with a laugh. Drama instructor Nicole Mayer, 24, of Barnegat said she wishes a similar local program existed a few years ago when she was in search of professional acting and modeling classes. “In 10th grade I went to John Casablanca’s (Modeling and Career Centers) in Pennsylvania every Saturday for six months, and that was a couple of thousand dollars for commercial acting lessons,” said Mayer. “I also did Barbizon (Modeling and Acting Center) in ninth grade. It was expensive. You got pictures and a few modeling lessons, but it’s still not affordable for parents who have kids who are interested in this stuff. Continued on Page 50

impact of rain and tidal flooding on a barrier island. “I think they have made a difference,” Frank Little, engineer for all the LBI municipalities, said of the valves in Ship Bottom. “I think they’re working pretty well,” near 26th Street as well as East Bay Terrace off 27th Street, and at the end of Central Avenue and 28th Street, where similar, but older model, Tideflex Check Valves were installed a number of years ago. Now, Little pointed out, Long Beach Township and Beach Haven are also considering installing check valves, which are, in simple terms, devices that allow fluid to flow through a pipe in only one direction; two openings in the body allow fluid to enter and fluid to leave. The CheckMate Inline Check Valve and the Tideflex Check Valve – both from the Red Valve Co., Inc.’s Tideflex Technologies division – have been used for years in coastal and inland municipalities to help with stormwater management. These “tidal valves,” as Asher Tingle, a local representative for Red Valve via A&E Associates, said the mechanisms have been called historically, are essentially “backflow preventers.” He added, calling on his 17 years of experience working on LBI and in nearby areas, “It’s difficult to get water off the Island in general” – an issue for any coastal community – but preventing backflow as much as possible means less saltwater on the roads. “The less water sitting there, the better off you’ll be” for purposes of safety, infrastructure durability, mobility and vehicle longevity. Tingle added, “When you get a big event” – severe nor’easters, hurricanes – “all bets are off,” but for a place such as LBI, where certain spots can flood on even the sunniest days, the valves are certainly a worthwhile investment. “They’re not a one-stop shop to fix it,” Bethea concurred, as there are so many natural factors with which to contend in regard to flooding on the Island, “but I think they’ve helped.” Recently, as Little explained, Long Beach Township asked Ocean County to look into a valve for the area near 81st Street and Long Beach Boulevard in Beach Haven Crest, notorious for flooding badly. Little said the municipality is also considering whether to install a valve on South Lagoon Drive in North Beach during an upcoming road project in that area. In addition, Beach Haven may install a CheckMate Inline Check Valve on Seventh Street, which Borough Manager Richard Crane says is one of the lowest, and therefore most floodprone, areas in that municipality. “It would be a trial,” he said.

‘Fancified’ Eats

Special People


To the Editor: In the wake of the 9/11 anniversary, I would like to take a moment to thank all of our local volunteers. It takes special people to dedicate their time to helping others, sometimes risking their own lives for those in need. You volunteers are vital members of our community, and your dedication and hard work is appreciated. Whether you are a firefighter, EMT, worker in the food bank or a member of any other volunteer organization, your talents do not go unnoticed. Keep up the good work and know that you are making your community a better place. Ryan M. Short, councilman Tuckerton

Pioneering Effort To the Editor: In response to Pat Johnson’s article “Lt. Governor Brings Message: ‘Arts Mean Business’ at LBIF” (9/12), I want to acknowlege the efforts of Angela Andersen of Long Beach Township recycling for her efforts toward obtaining the “Our Town” grant in partnership with the Foundation. The granting of funds from the National Endowment of the Arts was secured in August for the cultural district planning project on Long Beach Island and will be administered by the LBI Foundation of the Arts and Science. The concepts for the grant were the focus of a League of Municipalities conference session in November 2011, “Partnering for Sustainable and Creative Communities,” which Angela attended. She brought back the ideas discussed there to initiate in our community. Angela approached Marianne Gellman, development director of the Foundation, about the context of the grant, and together they submitted a winning application. They are to be commended. The grant is a pioneering effort between the Foundation and Long Beach Township. This is a tremendous project for the Island, and it is important to emphasize the depth of effort and vision that Long Beach Township brought and will bring to the process. The township will continue to provide leadership to guide the success of the grant project and encourages other towns to support the planning process and work toward local cultural and economic development for the Island community. Joe Mancini, mayor Long Beach Township

No Dog Park To the Editor: Although Lynne MacKnight’s story is very touching, it is also very revealing of how many dog owners act on LBI. Dogs are allowed on the beach in the off-season, but the leash laws are in effect all year. How does Lynne know which people on the beach want her strange, wet dog running up to them and which do not? Why can’t I walk on the beach in the off-season without being charged at by someone’s “own dear canine”? Please, dog owners, obey the leash laws. The beach is not a dog park. Steven Bucci Harvey Cedars

BY MARION DURNING enjoy going out to restaurants for dinner. I get to sample dishes I would never make at home, because (A) they are too cumbersome of a chore, and (B) my family wouldn’t touch them with a 10-foot pole. As I may have mentioned before, I live with carnivores. Beef, potatoes and very small servings of vegetables, thank you very much. Oh, and by the way, the vegetable choices are limited to corn, iceberg lettuce and Green Giant peas in butter sauce. Tomatoes also make a brief appearance, but only on BLTs and only during Jersey tomato season. I have noticed some curious goings-on in menu descriptions. Apparently some restaurants feel the need to “fancify” their offerings, thereby leaving the dining patron confused and slightly intimidated. Paté du maison with house-prepared cornichons, plateau fruit de mer with a side of freshly made remoulade sauce, and prime beef carpaccio drizzled with truffle oil were a few of the appetizer selections the other evening. Huh? Let me translate that for ya. The first appetizer is nothing more than upscale liverwurst with chopped pickles on top. The plateau fruit de mer is a fancy appellation for chilled seafood, such as shrimp and clams, served with a side of tartar sauce. Finally, the carpaccio is thin, shaved pieces of raw meat with an olive oil that cohabited with a mushroom for a while. Puts a different spin on things. Leaving the appetizer round, let’s head to the entrees prepared especially for you by our world-renowned chef, Robespierre. Tonight’s inspired creations are chateaubriand prepared with a layer of duxelles, finished in a beurre rouge sauce, a cassoulet containing duck confit, durade en croute de sel, and poussin under brick with a sweet tart gastrique. With these names, you know it’s a la carte, so tonight’s sides are pureed pommes de terre topped with basil-infused oil, pommes frites, haricot verts with a beurre blanc sauce, sauteed polenta squares and homemade orecchiette gratin. Translation? Big, tender steak with chopped mushrooms, in a red wine and butter sauce, old duck stew, fish baked in a salt crust, and flattened chicken with sweet and sour sauce. Your Continued on Page 12

Canine Reality To the Editor: As I believe that our beaches were still closed to dogs, particularly free-roaming ones, last week, Lynne MacKnight (“Tails Wagging: Beaches Are Going to the Dogs,” 9/12) has essentially self-confessed to a crime, and hopefully the authorities will move forcefully and promptly. Her idealized version of her dog’s behavior is a far cry from the reality of the typical

thoughtless and disgusting dog owner. J.A. Brean Rockledge, Pa. Editor’s Note: Last week’s SpeakEasy on letting dogs back on the beach was meant to be timed with the mid-September and Oct. 1 reopening dates. The SandPaper jumped the gun and published the piece a little too early. As far as letting dogs on the beach at all in the off-season, that’s a matter of opinion and a bone to pick with municipal leaders. Continued on Page 10

Three Cheers for Much-Needed Fed Action By JOHN M. IMPERIALE absolutely cannot wait for this presidential election to be over – and I love politics! Here’s the problem: There is so much that needs to be done, and to be done now. We should not be waiting months, or even days, to deal with the coming sequestration – the $1 trillion in automatic cuts to defense and domestic spending that everyone agrees will hurt both our defense and our domestic economy. We should not wait to finally enact a jobs bill, be it the one the president has offered or a compromise bill that the Republicans could live with. We should not wait for an education bill or more infrastructure spending, which would not only rebuild our bridges and roads but also stimulate the economy. And we should not be afraid of the word “stimulus”; we should do some more of it because everyone except those on the far right admit that the stimulus in 2008 worked. The only disagreement is how well it worked, meaning that perhaps


it should have been bigger. At any rate, we should not be waiting to decide. And we should not wait to deal with taxes. We should not be waiting for any of this. But we are. That is politics. Ben Bernanke, however, has a job to do, and his hands are not tied by political beliefs or political timetables. The chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is driven by a dual mandate: control inflation and maximize employment. Nothing about politics in that. Two objectives. That’s it. Balancing them may be hard at times, and some may disagree with the Fed having those two mandates, but it does. And nowhere in its charter, or in Mr. Bernanke’s job description, does it say to play politics. So, here we are, less than two months away from the November election, with inflation in check but employment still recovering too slowly (albeit recovering), and so Chairman Bernanke acted. In other words, he did his job. The Fed announced the third round of quantitative easing (QE3) in order to boost the

economy. Naturally, many Republicans assailed the chairman, not for what the Fed did, but for doing it 53 days before the presidential election. You see, if Mr. Bernanke is right and the economy picks up, that may look good for the president. So I guess some politicians, such as New Jersey’s own Republican Congressman Scott Garrett, see this as political manipulation. Rep. Garrett questioned the independence of the Fed in acting when it did since we are in an election year. He would, I assume, prefer that the economy not improve just yet. We should wait, I guess. Perhaps all federal agencies should stop doing their jobs for a few months, lest they do something to improve the country before the election. That would not be fair. All Obama appointees should just stop! No more trying to make things better just to make your boss look good. Arne Duncan: Stop worrying about our educational system for a few months, please.

To the Editor: Sorry, but I simply can’t let the harmful information fed to and by people like Gary Lowen (“GOP for Inequity” 9/12) go unanswered. The future of our country as a democracy is too important. Lowen obviously has bought into the “progressive,” social-justice thinking espoused by President Barack Obama and his band of reformers, who want to “fundamentally change” the United States. What Lowen doesn’t understand is what these people – the Democrats – really are doing is buying votes with taxpayer money. Your money, yes, if you are working and earning above $50,000. But my money, too, and quite frankly, I’ve already paid for my home, my children’s college educations, my health insurance and my healthcare needs, including the child-bearing years. I don’t want to pay for others’. I’m sure Lowen’s children are very nice, and hopefully, their college educations weren’t in some liberal incubator that spawns intellectuals who hate our nation and a free society. Still, when a child remains on a parent’s healthcare plan up to age 26, other premium payers pick up the tab. Nothing is free, despite what Sandra Fluke tries to convince women about birth control. Someone, somewhere is picking up the tab. And in Obama’s case, he wants to force payments for contraceptives and abortion on religious communities. This is just one example of many where he has circumvented our system of government and our Constitution just to get his way.

Continued from Page 6 home until mid-November, the environment be damned. Leon Panetta: The Department of Defense should rest for a while. How about everyone in Homeland Security doing nothing for a few months? That’s what Congress has planned for itself. And you, Chairman Bernanke, you must be the worst of all. After all, the economy is the big issue this year, and there you go trying to improve things. The Fed’s latest actions are widely expected to drive interest rates even farther down, which will spur business investment, increase home values and give a jolt to the stock market. The Federal Reserve’s “normal” way of jumpstarting the economy would be to “ease” the money supply by cutting its own interest rate. But with the Fed rate already at virtually zero percent, no more cutting is possible. So the only way to ease more money into the economy is by direct investment (which can be “quantified,” as opposed to rate cuts that ease the money supply without specifying a dollar amount.) In QE3, the Fed will buy $40 billion a month in mortgage-backed securities. QE2 in 2010 consisted of the Fed buying $600 billion in treasury bonds. The initial quantitative easing program in 2008 involved $2.1 trillion in mortgage-backed securities and treasury bonds. That is a whole lot of Fed action! But then again, the Fed, led by Chairman Bernanke, has a job to do, and it is doing it. The downside, and the only reasonable objection to Bernanke’s approach, is the risk of inflation. But with the economy recovering more slowly than anyone would like, employment growing, but growing too slowly, and inflation not a problem, the chairman is exactly right. Doing nothing would be a dereliction of

As for buying into the rich not paying enough: The loopholes are legal; the Democrats aren’t telling you that they use them, too. Just ask Nancy Pelosi and her husband, John Kerry and his wife. (The Dems also are not telling you that while they love Obamacare for you and me, they want no part of it for their families.) The GOP platform calls for elimination of loopholes. Another point on the 15 percent tax rate on investments: That’s over and above the rate investors paid when they earned the money – earned as in worked for it. Should our country kill the incentive to succeed and redistribute the wealth, let’s see what companies and investors do. A sneak preview is now being shown in France, where the wealthiest are leaving for Belgium because of the new socialist president’s call for a 70 percent tax rate. There will be a loss of jobs for the Lowen children and millions of others. Right now, many companies already are afraid to hire, fearing the consequences of Obamacare. All they know now is that it’s not good. No matter what Obama says, his plan is designed so employers will drop coverage and force people onto the national plan. Ta-da: national health care. Control. Power. I urge everyone to read anything and everything they can on Barack Obama’s background. Note the people with whom he associated, whose philosophies he applauded, embraced. This man truly wants to change our nation, and in a second term, he will be especially dangerous. He must be defeated. We are fortunate to have a man with the intelligence and integrity of Mitt Romney who can lead, truly lead our country back to a position of prosperity, strength and honor. Ann Powers Stafford Township duty. Quantitative easing has been used by central banks all over the world to spur economic growth. Yes, it is considered an “unconventional” tool, but these are unconventional times. We should applaud Ben Bernanke for not just sitting back and doing nothing. If his actions help the economy (his goal) and also help the president, well, the president’s opponents are just going to have to live with that. If an Obama appointee does his or her job and the result is good for America, that seems like fair play to me. Either way, I want people in responsible positions to act responsibly. I imagine that when George W. Bush first appointed Mr. Bernanke to the Fed chairmanship in 2006, he felt that his pick would always do what he thought was right. Barack Obama re-appointed Bernanke in 2010 with the same belief. It would have been easy for Bernanke to wait until after the election to take action. He would have avoided some criticism, for sure. But perhaps a man who spent more than 20 years in New Jersey, teaching at Princeton, learned that a person can be tough enough to do the job at hand without worrying about what others might say. There are many things to complain about these days; an ineffective Congress, renewed strife in the Middle East, endless political ads, money in politics, the cost of gas, storms, drought. The list goes on; add what you will. No one, though, should complain that we have someone in Washington actually doing his job. Y John M. Imperiale lives in Harvey Cedars.

To the Editor: On Saturday, Sept. 15 the NJ Maritime Museum held its fourth annual fundraiser. With its theme of the 50th anniversary of the 1962 nor’easter, it was a rousing success. More than 350 people attended. Music was provided by DJ Mike Thompson and his Party Crashers.

Democrat at Heart To the Editor: When a woman becomes president of the United States, she will be a Democrat. The same will be said for a president who is Latino or Native American or gay. I know this because, while it is the Republican Party that gives us women of the caliber of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann – not very often of the caliber of Margaret Chase Smith and Sandra Day O’Connor – it is the Democratic Party that regularly gives us women of the caliber of Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sonia Sotomayor, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Shirley Chisholm. It is the Democratic Party that recognizes, has confidence in, promotes and celebrates the diversity that is the strength of the United States of America. Long ago, when I was an eighth-grader in Indiana, I wrote an English-class essay addressed as a “Letter to Uncle Sam.” In it, I praised then-President Dwight Eisenhower for the character, purpose and wisdom I believed he brought to a country still recovering from a massive “hot” war, involved in another-butsmaller one and confronted with a “cold” one. My teacher sent my essay to the president, and his press secretary responded with a letter that read in part, “Never has the President enjoyed a letter as much as he did yours,” and Continued on Page 12

Continued from Page 10 he sent an autographed picture of Eisenhower at his desk in the Oval Office. Those treasures thrilled an eighth-grader’s heart, as did the experience a few years ago of visiting the Eisenhower Library, standing by his grave, reading his words of wisdom enshrined on the walls. It was when I was in college, however, that I knew I “am,” not “became,” a Democrat. I am because it is the Democratic Party whose philosophy, principles, policies and programs most match my own. It is the party that values and seeks to protect the working people; the average, special and extraordinary people; the people who need and seek to better their lives through educational institutions; the people who worship in a variety of ways; the people who commit their lives to public service in military and civil paths; the immigrants, except for Native Americans, we all are; the downtrodden, despised and discriminated against because of their national origin, race or skin color, religion or other creed, ethnicity, gender and/or sexual orientation. So, again this year, I will vote for President Barack Obama. Although I believe in a vigorous, healthy, two-party system, I am confident it is Democrats who will continue to lead us to a better life, better because they seek to preserve, protect and defend those values of inclusiveness and diversity that have made this country great. Karen L. Bosley Long Beach Township

Buy a Ticket To the Editor: The high regard for Israeli intelligence is overrated. If Prime Minister Netanyahu really wants to meet with President Obama during an election period, the Israel intel should know the president has a tight, rigid schedule. The prime minister should either buy a ticket for a fundraiser or take up golf. William H. Rickards Ship Bottom

Labor of Love To the Editor: Another bake sale at the Long Beach Island Museum has come and gone. We are proud of all who created such delicious and elaborate desserts. These sales enable our organization to help with the financial upkeep of our old building. The bakers, buyers and those who donate money and other goods are our lifeline for success. Plastic containers are donated from Harvey Restrick and Jack Lampman of Package Materials Corp. – thanks again. The donation of fudge from John Maschal also is much appreciated. Bottles of water are donated by a very generous lady. The ice is also a contribution from another organization. One member always writes a check because she does not bake.

Wisdom Undiscovered If confidence was in a pill We would O.D. on it at will But it takes time to earn the right To accept what is – and not to fight “What is the limit we can go?” That is something only we can know There are those people who will test us There are so many things to learn And limited time to confirm If we can find the good things to compare That would keep the bad things to be rare But if we can wear an irrepressible smile We will be the ones who appreciate His blessings in a pile.

Continued from Page 6 sides are mashed potatoes, French fries, green beans with a butter sauce, grits made into fried squares and good old mac and cheese. I always save room for dessert, and the names of these sweet treats are awe-inspiring as well: cherries clafoutis, chocolat semifreddo and German torte with ganache topping. Give up? They are simply cherry cobbler, half-melted chocolate ice cream and chocolate cake with chocolate icing. They seem to taste better when they are using their aliases, or maybe they just taste better because someone else makes them for you. Realistically, there are only so many ways you can prepare food. You cook it, you sauce it and – my favorite part – you eat it! A meal by any other name would taste as good. Well, I must run and prepare lunch for my children. Today’s menu consists of trimmed brioche with a slathering of concord fresh harvest preserves and ground nut paste, with a side of pomme crisps, or, as others might call it, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, crusts removed, with a bag of chips.

It’s a big car, but a two-seater.” Other cars he knows are coming include late-model classics such as Mustangs, Dodges and Corvettes. “Someone is bringing a Stanley Steamer and there will be Model A’s and T’s from 1917 to 1929. “It’s a nice outing. We’ll have food, ’50s and ’60s music, and lots to see.” Admission to the show is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 6 to 12.
