Administration Is on Right Track – Making Progress Despite Adversity By CAROLE MARKS full picture of the last four years shows the many achievements of the Obama administration, achievements that strongly support his re-election. We urgently need four more years to continue our recovery and improve the quality of life for the majority of Americans. Here are some of his many accomplishments. First, the starting point from which to measure progress: The president took office in 2008 during the worst economic crisis in 90 years. It included a financial crisis caused by Wall Street and big corporations that brought our nation to the brink of bankruptcy, a huge deficit left as a legacy from the Bush presidency, two wars, a healthcare system in crisis, infrastructure in shambles, our public educational system failing, a nation suffering from the worst unemployment and insecurity since the Great Depression, a middle class on the brink of extinction and a corporate, Wall Street ruling class that was, and is, determined to continue making maximum profits on the backs of working and poor people. The wealthiest 1 percent of Americans now have a greater worth than the bottom 90 percent combined, i.e., “redistribution” of wealth upward. The administration has accomplished much in spite of the Republicans obstructing everything Obama has fought for, manipulating, lying and vilifying the president. Among Obama’s achievements: JOBS AND THE ECONOMY: Upon taking office, Obama pressed Congress to pass the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the largest ($787 billion) stimulus in history, which saved or created 3.6 million jobs, and could have done more if not for the resistance from Republicans. In the past 29 months, the economy has produced about 5.1 million private sector jobs. During the same period, more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs

A

have been created under the president, the first time manufacturing jobs have increased since the 1990s. Today overall unemployment is 7.8 percent, the lowest since Obama took office, and less in industrial states such as Ohio. Obama won two extensions, one of the debt ceiling, and the second of unemployment compensation that kept millions from falling into poverty, both in the face of Republican threats to shut down the government. Recognizing the recovery act had halted economic collapse but had not been large enough to end the jobs crisis, in 2011, the president proposed the American Jobs Act, which included $140 billion in infrastructure spending. It would have put thousands of Americans back to work repairing our nation’s infrastructure and providing a new round of state and local aid to keep teachers, firefighters and other public workers on the job. But this was blocked by Congress, and only the unemployment insurance and payroll-tax holiday extensions were signed into law. TAXES: The AARA also cut taxes for 96 percent of the American people. Under Obama, tax rates for average working families are the lowest they’ve been since 1950. The president’s program calls for reducing more taxes on 95 percent of the people, the middle, working class and poor, repealing the Bush tax cuts for the rich and increasing taxes on those making more than $250,000. The Romney-Ryan budget would reinstate the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy that did not spur job growth but did cut personal taxes further for the very rich, as well as increase taxes on the great majority of working people. To discourage off-shoring, the president also called for a minimum tax on all U.S. profits earned overseas and has offered companies a 20 percent tax credit for locating factories back in America.

Still There To the Editor: Here I am again walking on the most beautiful October day near the Causeway Shack, walking into the sunshine cool, so many gulls above, and this is a need for a new poem when I see that shack again: Dark autumn clouds on dark gray shack Fall into place: I see you still there. Chris Kulkosky Little Egg Harbor

With Current Leadership, Ignorance Is Not Bliss By WILL BOWMAN ell, boys and girls, it’s just about time to elect a president for the next four years. We have two candidates with stark differences: Romney, a self-made millionaire with a traditional approach to our economy, and Obama, who has spent four years in trial and error ineptness on the verge of destroying our country. There are far too many egregious acts of incompetence to address here, but let’s discuss one of the two that are not repairable when Obama is gone. Before we examine the most extreme Obama failures, let’s review some firsts for him. Under Obama’s watch, we have the most people in poverty ever, the most people on food stamps ever, the worst recovery in history. He has borrowed and wasted more money than any other person in the history of humanity and accomplished this in only four years. Under Obama, we have had the longest time with unemployment over 8 percent, the highest black unemployment rate of 50 percent, a period in which many college graduates have no job. Obama has created the largest tax in the history of the United

W

States with Obamacare, $260 billion per year, three-quarters of which is paid by the middle class. He is the first president to abridge the constitutional rights of religion, the first president to preside over a downgrade of our debt, the first president to unilaterally allow two million illegal aliens to have the same rights to jobs as the 24 million Americans out of work. He took a half trillion dollars out of Medicare to fund Obamacare. The yearly compliance to meet all new Obama regulations on businesses starting next year is $1.8 trillion, which is 20 times what Obama said it would cost As sickening as this list is, two directions that Obama is taking will not be reversible: the crushing debt he has accumulated and his sheer incompetence in foreign policy. In four years Obama will increase the national debt by just about 60 percent. The debt is now over $16 trillion and it’s on a rocket going straight up. Remember Obama’s promise? “I will commit to cutting the deficit in half in four years.” Not only did Obama not cut it at all, he quadrupled the deficit. To get a better understanding of Obama’s vision of future spending, let’s examine the two budgets he prepared in four years.

The budgets in the House and the Senate received zero votes. And why was that? His 10-year plans all had more than a trillion dollars of new debt annually that never ends. Obama has made it crystal clear that he will keep borrowing in excess of a trillion dollars per year. He will not stop spending as much money as he can humanly tax and borrow. Let’s remember that under Obama the United States has had a downgrade of our debt. The lower the credit rating, the higher the interest rate, just like your mortgage. Given the facts at hand, let’s now project what another four years of Obama will do. There is no evidence that Obama will have any reason to borrow less and every reason to borrow more. There are bound to be some devastating results. For example, if you are 54 years old or younger and you think Social Security and Medicare are going to be there for you, you don’t live on Long Beach Island; you live on Fantasy Island. Food stamps and Medicaid will be on life support. Think it can’t get worse? It gets worse. Right now we have a perfect storm, Obama doing everything Continued on Page 13

Call the Plumber To the Editor: I have owned property on LBI in Surf City and Ship Bottom for more than 35 years, and whenever there is a problem with the water lines and the water had to be shut off until it was repaired, we were never charged a fee. A few years ago the water line in my Ship Bottom house developed a leak and the town repaired it because it was on its property, again with no charge for the shut-off. This July again there was a leak. Since I wasn’t sure if it was on my property or the town’s, I called the town. Due to cost-cutting, Ship Bottom no longer takes care of this itself; it contracts out to Stafford Township. A man came from Stafford Township, looked at it and shut the water off. I saw him from the upstairs window walking toward the house, so I went downstairs. He told me he shut it off because it’s on my property and I would have to get a plumber. I asked him why didn’t he notify us so we could fill up some buckets of water. He said he didn’t think anyone was home. He must have an I.Q. of about 60 because my van was in the driveway with the windows open, the garage door was open and my dog was barking her head off. I asked him if he could turn it on for a short time to fill up a couple of buckets and he refused and said once it’s off, it can’t be turned back on until the plumber comes. As a consequence we had to go begging for water from neighbors to hold us over until the plumber could get there. Not only did we have to go through that inconvenience, but the icing on the cake was to get a bill from the town for $125. I called the borough and spoke to the business administrator. He said he would look into it, but I didn’t hear anything back for three weeks. I then wrote to mayor and council about the issue. The borough administrator called me back to tell me the shut-off charge has been on the books for a number of years. I told him this was the first time I had heard Continued on Page 9

Wouldn’t It Be Nice? To the Editor: Wouldn’t it be nice if the Harvey Cedars water tower could be repainted? (According to an article I read in the Oct. 3 SandPaper, it is going to be repainted!) Wouldn’t it be nice if something artistic could be painted on the water tower? Maybe a nice blue claw crab to commemorate the Harvey Cedars Blue Claw Crab Races? Maybe something else that “says” Harvey Cedars? (That would probably cost more money than just repainting it would cost.) Oh, but wouldn’t it be nice? Barbara Imperiale Harvey Cedars

Lost Opportunity To the Editor: A curious situation has developed here in Barnegat in connection with the November election. It appears there was just one debate or meet the candidates event. It was scheduled and restricted to residents of Brighton At Barnegat on Monday, Oct. 8 since only the Democrats were willing to meet with their opponents. Republican candidates Mayor Al Cirulli and Committeeman Jeff Melchiondo have refused requests without explanation from the League of Women Voters and the residential communities of Horizons at Barnegat and Mirage to meet Susan Conway and Elaine Taylor, the Democratic candidates. Since the League and those communities require both parties to agree to participate, the events were canceled. One wonders why. Could it be they feel they might not be successful in debating such well-qualified opponents or are they concerned about facing questions from irate citizens on the increases in taxes? There was a time when Barnegat residents would have many opportunities to meet all the candidates running for the township committee, to listen to their positions on the issues and to make informed choices on election day.

Purple Hearts To the Editor: On Oct. 13 we held our first “Purple Party” at the Surf City Firehouse to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. The party was a huge success! We would like to thank all the businesses who helped sponsor our event, everyone who volunteered their time and helped us, and all the people who attended and took part in our fundraisers. And last but not least, thank you to the Surf City Volunteer Fire Co. for letting us use your hall. Pancreatic cancer is something that has affected the lives of many who attended. Many of us have lost friends and family. It’s estimated that 44,000 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. Seventy-five percent of these people will die within seven months and only 5 percent will live five years. Pancreatic cancer research is the most poorly funded of the major cancers and yet it’s the most deadly. Two percent of the National Cancer Institute’s approximate $5 billion annual cancer research budget goes to pancreatic cancer research. A new study shows that by 2020 pancreatic cancer will move from the fourth leading cause of cancer death to the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. This needs to change! The House of Representatives recently unanimously passed the Recalcitrant Cancer Research Act (H.R.-733), formerly known as the Pancreatic Cancer Research & Education Act. The bill requires the National Cancer Institute to create a long-term plan for pancreatic and other recalcitrant cancers. It includes evaluating its current efforts in the disease and making recommendations on ways to accelerate progress and improve outcomes. The legislation now awaits a vote in the Continued on Page 10

Continued from Page 6 of it. He didn’t want to hear that. I asked him about the outrageous actions of the water department person. He said he had nothing to do with that. So the Ship Bottom taxes I pay are going to a do-nothing business administrator and inconsiderate water department. Therefore, Ship Bottom homeowners, in the future, do not call the town. Call the plumber so the town cannot charge you and you don’t have to deal with inconsiderate Stafford water department employees. Frank J. Andriuli Ship Bottom

It is wrong to deny the citizens of Barnegat this opportunity to make a reasoned choice after being given the opportunity to consider each candidate’s positions. There are debates at all levels of government from the president, the legislative branch, etc., but to not have them right here at the local level ... Shame on Mayor Cirulli and Committeeman Melchiondo! Dorothy Ryan Barnegat

NOTICE TO LONG BEACH WATER CUSTOMERS The Long Beach Water Department will conduct its annual Àushing of the distribution system from:

OCTOBER 9TH TO THE END OF DECEMBER 2012 A temporary slight discoloration of the water and a decrease of pressure may be noted as a result of the opening of ¿re hydrants. This discoloration is not harmful and will clear up if you let your water run for a short time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but by Àushing the system we improve the quality of the water delivered to our customers. Customers are also encouraged to check for discolored water before doing laundry or washing dishes. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Continued from Page 6 HEALTH CARE: The administration’s Affordable Care Act puts the country on the path toward quality, affordable health care for all Americans. Thirty million uninsured people will get healthcare coverage under the plan. Children can be covered by their parents’ health insurance to age 26. The State Children’s Health Insurance Program expands health care for children. Insurance companies are stopped from denying care because of pre-existing conditions, and from dropping coverage for those who get sick. Incentives are included for employers to provide health coverage. Penalties also are included for employers who do not provide coverage when a worker is eligible for subsidized health care. The plan provides 54 million Americans with free preventive services, such as mammograms, colonoscopies and immunizations. Individuals and businesses have secured more than a billion in refunds from their insurance premiums because the law requires 80 to 85 percent of premiums to be spent on health care, not profits or promotion. Romney has said he would work to repeal the ACA on his first day in office. MEDICARE: The ACA would save the Medicare system from being turned into a “voucher” system, which would put the cost of Medicare on the backs of the working people because vouchers would not cover the increasing costs of health care. MEDICAID would be saved under President Obama. Under Romney-Ryan, Medicaid would be turned into block grants to the states and cut by a third during the coming decade, which would especially hurt children and the elderly. Almost two-thirds of Medicaid is spent on nursing home care for seniors and on people with disabilities, including families with children with special needs, such as Down syndrome or autism. SOCIAL SECURITY benefits would be protected under Obama from attempts to cut and privatize it. Obama restored full Social Security benefits to the seriously disabled. Formerly, cuts resulted in the disabled/ill becoming one of the fastest-growing groups of homeless people. WOMEN’S RIGHTS: Signed into law, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act restores basic protections against pay discrimination for women. The administration has expanded funding for the Violence Against Women Act. Women will get greatly increased preventive care and diagnostic testing under the ACA. Free choice is still the law of the land, but a woman’s right to choose, Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood, etc., are under relentless attack by the right wing. Many states have passed laws against abortion, under any conditions. The Romney-Ryan plan would make it illegal to have an abortion even for so-called “legitimate rape.” PUBLIC AND COLLEGE EDUCATION: President Obama signed an executive order that cut the interest college students have to pay on their loans and gave graduates 20 years to pay back their loans once they have a job. He oversaw expansion of the Pell Grants Program to expand opportunity for lowincome students to go to college. The Romney-Ryan budget that would cut funds for public education and reduce the numbers of teachers and programs in our schools, making public workers and their unions scapegoats for gutting education, will never rebuild our education systems and provide opportunities for all. HOUSING: Although foreclosures are still a national disaster, the Obama administration allocated more than $50 billion in Troubled Asset Relief Program funds to help families facing foreclosure. During 2011, the admin-

istration offered a minimum of 12 months’ relief on mortgage payments for unemployed homeowners. WAR AND PEACE: Obama ended the Iraq war and set the withdrawal date for our troops in Afghanistan. He signed a new nuclear arms reduction agreement with Russia and authorized the mission that eliminated Osama bin Laden. He has proposed cuts in the bloated military budget. The administration’s strategy is diplomacy and international agreements. The RomneyRyan budget and policy would increase the military budget, resurrect a cold war with Russia and a hot war with Iran, which would ignite the Middle East into a global inferno. SUPREME COURT: With the Citizens United decision, unleashing the floodgates of corporate power by unlimited billions, damaging our democracy by buying elections, the court has moved once more to the right. Affirmative action, voting rights and Roe v. Wade are threatened. Obama has tried to mediate this rightward direction by adding two progressive women, Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic justice in the court’s history, and Elena Kagan. Yes, we are better off now than we were four years ago. But only by staying the course, re-electing Obama and electing a Democratic Congress that will unshackle the presidency can we continue to make progress and alleviate the economic and social ills that continue to plague our nation. Y Carole Marks lives in Barnegat Light.

Continued from Page 9 Senate, and if passed will require the president’s signature to become law. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has been very instrumental in working with Congress to get this bill passed and turned into law. You can read more at panCAN.org. We are tentatively planning the Purple Party II for Saturday, June 22, 2013. With continued support from our fine community, we look forward to helping find a cure for not just pancreatic cancer, but all cancers. Andy Warren, Diane and Amanda Hoover Chairpersons, Purple Party

Photo Found To the Editor: On Saturday, Oct. 1 I spent the day “yard sale hopping” with my dear friend who lives in Surf City. Sometime in the early afternoon we happened upon a sale located on an empty lot heading toward Bay Village. A lovely woman with blond hair sold me four of her cookbooks. Later that night in reviewing one of them I discovered tucked in a page a pristine black and white shot of a family dog, taken probably in the 1960s if judged by the square shape and deckled edge of the photo paper. I suspect this is a long-lost shot of a cherished pet and would like to return it to the owner, but as the sale was set up on an empty lot I can’t retrace the address to contact her. If you would be so kind to print this I hope we can reunite her with the photo. I know that if it were one of my family dogs I would welcome its return. Marie R. Power-Barnes Hamilton Township, N.J.

Safety First To the Editor: At the recent Little Egg Harbor Planning Board meeting, an application was presented to allow a six-lot subdivision within the Planned Residential Development zone. The minimum lot size for a subdivision is 100 acres. The applicant only has 1.26 acres. If Continued on Page 13

Continued from Page 6 humanly possible to destroy the economy and Fed chairman Bernanke printing trillions upon trillions of dollars. Bernanke says he’ll keep printing money until he sees a recovery. Did anyone remind Bernanke that as long as Obama is in office there isn’t going to be one? So what finally happens when Bernanke has added untold trillions to the money supply? We have the most consuming inflation in our history – another first for our feckless president What is happening is called monetizing our debt. Countries loan us money when a dollar is worth a dollar, then we pay them back when a dollar is worth 40 cents. Because world oil is priced in U.S. dollars, Obama gets us $6 gas. Prices for energy and food will have a devastating effect on the poor and the needy. When the party is over and we have a $22 trillion bill, what exactly do you think happens? You don’t have to speculate. Just look at what’s happening in Greece or Spain. These countries have 24 percent unemployment, Draconian slashing of government budgets, people rummaging through the garbage for food, people rioting in the streets. I’m not trying to be a scaremonger, but look at the Arab countries. Look at the riot videos. What do you see? Do you see any old people? The streets are packed with 20-year-olds who have 50 percent unemployment. They have absolutely nothing else to do with their time. While that scenario is extreme, here in the United States combine 20 percent unemployment among some sectors, the government being broke, the largest single line item expense in the budget being the interest on the Obama debt, huge decreases in entitlements, illegal aliens taking Americans jobs, and then add the 200 million guns known to be in the country. The second irreparable harm that Obama is inflicting on this country is his breathtakingly naïve foreign policy. That’s a whole other story, but for now it is safe to say Obama and Hillary Clinton signed that poor ambassador’s death warrant because of pure stupidity. Up to and including the U.N. meeting, Obama is still telling the world that these people died because of a movie. Sheer nonsense! Y Will Bowman lives in Surf City.

Fix the Problem Dear Left-of-Center Americans: Aren’t you getting tired of defending and making excuses for our president? Are you embarrassed enough to do something about it? For four years and with a huge allowance he tried but was not successful. It’s time for Barack Hussein Obama to move on. He can improve his golf score, pass that basketball with his buddies without interruption and avoid having to fly all over the place in Air Force 1. (I’m sure he’s seen all the highlights in Ohio and Pennsylvania.) It’s time for – what’s-his-other-name? – “Barry” to go, and he can take Joe Biden with him. Joe will be just as happy riding the choo-choo between Washington, D.C. and Delaware. He can laugh inappropriately and make all the gaffes he wants. I doubt anybody will miss him. Michelle should stack up her travel brochures, set them out for “recycle,” and go have the greasy hamburger with fries on the side she really desires. Let’s fix the problem and elect Mitt Romney, with his leadership skills and standing as the guy with the facts and figures, and Paul Ryan to create the jobs needed to put America back to work and give our country the respect we deserve. We can get our debt under control and have it done by an experienced team that has the skills to get the job done. Don’t forget to vote. Your quality of life depends on it.

Untwisted Facts To the Editor: In response to Fred Laurenzo’s column (“Republicans Seeking to Focus on Preserving Traditional Family,”10/10), I commend him and his wife on instilling positive values in the course of raising six children and experiencing the joy of having 13 grandchildren. Traditional families are the ideal, but not everyone is fortunate enough to live in such a family. Deaths and divorces occur, some never find a suitable partner to marry, others may have a committed relationship with a same-sex partner, but my belief is that the vast number of non-traditional families that may have children try to instill the same values in their children that Mr. Laurenzo has done in his. As for his other concerns, my concern is where he obtained his facts. In this day of instant knowledge at our fingertips there seems to be more erroneous information than ever before. Both political parties are also guilty of twisting the facts or repeating a lie so many Continued on Page 42

Continued from Page 10 the planning board approves this application, it will set back the township planning process to the levels that existed prior to the 1976 Municipal Land Use Law enacted by our township. In addition, the site in question is the southwest corner of the intersection of Radio Road and Oak Street, where cars, buses and trucks are regulated in their movements by a state-approved traffic signal. This signal required the approvals of our township and the county. New Jersey Statutes Title 39 regulates the signal, but the planning board’s experts did not investigate the obligations of the township to protect the motorist from harm due to the numerous driveways needed to serve this sixlot subdivision. Hard-working folks who want to get into their home will have to cross the artificial traffic control barriers erected pursuant to Title 39 as well as avoid buses, trucks and fastmoving bicycles. Safety needs to be provided in accordance with the Uniform Manual of Traffic Control Devices and allow for the uninterrupted operation of the public bus stop at this corner. The planning board needs to have the police department’s traffic control officer review the developer’s plans and make recommendations such as that required by the application of good planning practices and

principles. Before the planning board takes any approval action, the issues of safety and planning to provide for neighborhood parks in the Planned Residential Zone should be reconciled and approval withheld until the safety of families and motorists is fully protected.

Speaker Dishes Out â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;China Wreckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Story

I

n 1970, divers for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration were checking the bottom of the Delaware Bay between Cape May and Lewes, Del., for obstructions, when they came across the wooden remains of a long-sunken vessel. Because of the large mounds of stacked, British-made chinaware that remained in the hull, the site became known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;China Wreck.â&#x20AC;? That will be the topic when the Museum of New Jersey Maritime History in Beach Haven presents â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mystery of the China Wreck,â&#x20AC;? Friday, Oct. 19, 7 p.m. Guest speaker Bart Malone, a longtime wreck diver and senior museum curator, said much remains unknown about the ship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were thousands of pieces of china, most of it ironware and some of it porcelain,â&#x20AC;? said Malone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not much of it was fancy dishware, just everyday white china.â&#x20AC;? He said the ship was estimated to be 135 to 165 feet long and probably sank around 1880. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the china that was discovered was made in the 1860s and some in the 1870s,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that throws some people off because it could have sat in warehouses for some time.â&#x20AC;? Malone said the fact that the china came from Britain does not mean it was being transported by a British ship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one has been able to determine the name of the ship,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know it was not a transatlantic oceanliner. It appears it was some type of cargo ship and was likely headed to Philadelphia. But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about the crew or how many people died or what caused the shipwreck.â&#x20AC;? For more information, call the museum at 609-492-0202 or log on to www.museumof njmh.com. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; E.E.

Dine With the Infamous Jersey Devil

J

ust in time for Halloween, the Tuckerton Seaport unveils an evening of murder and mayhem during a mystery dinner show. The guest of honor is New Jersey’s most notorious resident, the Jersey Devil. “Revenge of the Jersey Devil” will be performed by the Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Co. on Friday, Oct. 26, at 6 p.m. at Sea Oaks Country Club in Little Egg Harbor. The infamous Jersey Devil has made an appearance hundreds of times since his birth in the 18th century, but has never made as hilarious a showing as he will in “Revenge of the Jersey Devil.” The show is based on the earliest legends regarding Jersey’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 figure in this screwball musical comedy. Pay attention through the laughter because one of the characters will be ruthlessly murdered, and, of course, it’s up to the audience to solve the crime. Prizes will be awarded to the first people who correctly guess the murder 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 609296-8868 or e-mail BrookeS@ TuckertonSeaport.org. Additional details can be found at www.tuckertonseaport.org. Proceeds from this dinner theater event will benefit the Seaport’s educational programs. —P.J.

Even after finding a lump on her breast, Susan Kennedy of Red Bank, wasn’t worried. She ate well, was an avid rock climber, and had no history of breast cancer in her family. Then the test results came back. It was a rare form of breast cancer. Using her research background as an attorney, Susan digested as much information on her treatment options as possible before acting. Her search led her to the Breast Program at Meridian Cancer Care. After surgery and chemotherapy at Riverview Medical Center, Susan is back to her life and even advocating for cancer patients dealing with chemotherapy drug shortages.

Susan won the biggest fight of her life against breast cancer. Today, she helps others fight for theirs.

ctors from the Ocean Professional Theatre Co., including Fred Velde, Grace Wright, James Rana, Thomas Raniszewski, Shelley McPherson and Mark Edward Lang, will be performing in “The Poe Mysteries,” directed by Gayle Stahlhuth at the Barnegat High School, Wednesday, Oct. 24 through Sunday, Oct. 28. Show times are Wednesday and Thursday, 3 and 8 p.m.; Saturday, 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 p.m. The production will take place inside the Bengal Auditorium, located at 180 Bengal Blvd. in Barnegat.

The cast of six will depict nearly 50 different characters. From a double massacre in a locked dwelling to the vanishing of a gorgeous, young woman and the perilous secrets found in a mysterious note, these evil crimes, deemed unfathomable by law enforcement, will have the crowd on the edge of their seats in wonder and awe. “‘The Poe Mysteries’ fits right in with Halloween because it’s scary!” said Ruth Blankemeyer, managing director of the Ocean Professional Theatre Co., which opened in Barnegat in May.

Harvest Festival Highlights Autumn Joy – and Wine

S

tafford Township’s Fall Harvest Festival is a two-day, community-wide event at Manahawkin Lake Park, located at Route 9 and Lakeshore Drive. It’s jam-packed with all the best the season has to offer, from hayrides and scarecrows to hot chili, a bonfire and movies in the park. The harvest festival is a Stafford tradition of more than 20 years, according to Recreation Director Betti Anne McVey. New to the festival this year is a wine festival spanning both days, featuring 10 New Jersey wineries. The wine event is organized through a partnership between Stafford Recreation and GPS Event Producers. On Saturday, the fun goes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (The rain date is Sunday, starting at noon.) Hayrides will run continuously all day; admission to the ride is one non-perishable food item to be donated to a local food pantry. Throughout the park, crafters and food vendors will offer handmade gifts and festival fare while live music fills the air, courtesy of the Mott’s Creek Pickers. A Halloween parade and costume contest kick off at noon. Kids can pick pumpkins, wander through the hay maze, play games and rides, and learn the art of scarecrow making ($10 per scarecrow). As daylight fades, break out the marshmallows for toasting near a hot and dazzling bonfire, then round up the group and settle in with blankets and cozy lawn chairs for a double feature under the stars, with two classic movies: “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “ET.” Tickets to the wine festival, which takes place from noon to 5 p.m. both days, are $12 in advance or $15 at the entrance. Sample varietals from the following wineries: Tomasello, Plagido’s, DiMatteo, Auburn Road, Cream Ridge, Amalthea Cellars, Sharrott, Wagonhouse, Coda Rossa and Renault. Tickets can be purchased online at visitlbiregion.com. Parking is available in all the parks in the area, and police will assist with directing festival-goers. —V.L.

By RICK MELLERUP ith apologies to folks like roofers, commercial fishermen and volunteer first responders, Christopher Sutton, Lyn Philistine, Neal Mayer and Leslie Henstock have to be the hardest working people on Long Beach Island this week. The foursome comprises the cast (Sutton and Philistine actually did double duty, respectively directing and choreographing the show) of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!” playing through Oct. 21 at Beach Haven’s Surflight Theatre. It is easy to understand that four people playing a number of characters and singing almost two dozen songs are kept plenty busy. But what most audience members don’t realize is that quick, stressful costume changes are the bane of actors everywhere, and this musical is loaded with them. The “Now Change” part of the show’s title is indeed apt! Trust this longtime actor: quick changes can distract a performer, hurting performances by causing “in-the-moment” intensity to fall. These four, though, not only didn’t experience any costume malfunctions at the matinee this reviewer took in but didn’t show a single slip at all in their wonderfully energetic and engaging performances. Of course Sutton was familiar with the show, making him a perfect pick to direct. He had been a longtime member of the cast of the Off-Broadway production in New York. “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!” with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music by Jimmy Roberts, had the second-longest OffBroadway run in history, behind only “The Fantasticks.” It is easy to see why, considering it is a light, funny and entertaining show.

these days – it has great lyrics (hmm, I wrote that about Surflight’s last musical as well, eureka!): My hairline’s receding My ulcer is bleeding My ego needs feeding Why? ’Cause I’m a guy My vacuum is rusting My bathtub is crusting My kitchen’s disgusting Why? ’Cause I’m a guy! The cast, simply referred to as Man #1, Man #2, Woman #1 and Woman #2, assume a variety of personas in a number of disconnected scenes as they meander through life. Act I deals with the dating games people play: Woman: I sit here trying to impress and make this guy awestruck But every subject I address makes me sound like such a shmuck. Man: It’s not that I can’t be diverting, sometimes I can even thrill But I’d just be so much better at flirting, if I only had looks that kill. Act II deals with married and family life: I tucked in both the boys and I put away their toys so tonight I feel the joys of being wed. I put away each smurf and the footballs made of nerf so tonight this daddy’s turf will be his bed. I cleaned up legos and gorillas, ninja turtles and godzillas and one large tyrannosaurus rex. Now who would have guessed it but soon I’ll be undressed. I’m married, and I’m gonna have sex.

Ship Bottom Calls For Parade Sign-Ups

E

ven though the calendar says October, Ship Bottom says it is time for people to begin working on their float for the borough’s Christmas Parade, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 1 p.m. This year’s theme is “A Holiday Hoedown.” “We really want to encourage businesses, organizations and families to design and build their homemade entrants,” said Kathleen Wells, borough clerk. She said although there is no fee for having a float or participating in the parade, people need to register. Wells said the hoedown theme applies only to the judging, which takes place at the reviewing stand in front of the borough hall at 17th Street. “People are welcome to decorate their floats with any theme they want,” she said. The procession steps off from the Ethel Jacobsen School at Fifth Street and Barnegat Avenue. The parade route runs through Long Beach Boulevard in Ship Bottom to 25th Street. Parade line-up time is 10:30 a.m. for floats and 11:30 for all other participants. Various sponsorships are available, with the top one being a gold sponsorship for $1,000, which will help pay for the bands in the parade. Other sponsorships include a $600 Silver and a $300 bronze. For more information, log on to www. shipbottom.org or call Wells at 609-494-1614, extension 116. —E.E.

Surflight’s ‘I Love You’: ‘Wonderfully Engaging’

Supplied Photo

CHANGE FOR BETTER: Leslie Henstock, Toms River native Neal Mayer, Lyn Philistine and Christopher Sutton star in ‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,’ on stage until Oct. 21. Now, I don’t care for musicals (or TV shows, movies or commercials) that stereotype men and women. I know that poll after poll shows the favorite hobby of U.S. men to be watching football while the women go for shopping (and both are lampooned in this show), but still, I hope some people are a little deeper than that. But damn it if “I Love You …” frequently hits home with its observations. In one vignette a couple has totally succumbed to baby talk after the birth of their first child. A single friend of the husband visits and is disgusted by what has happened to his former beer-drinking buddy. Oh yes, how many times have I witnessed that scene play out in real life? “I Love You …” tackles many familiar scenarios. One scene is called “Men Who Talk and the Women Who Pretend They’re Listening.” Another is titled “The Family That Drives Together …” Just about everybody, either as a child passenger

or a driving father, has gone through that! So, “I Love You” should strike a chord with just about everybody, men and women. And, to be fair, it does get a little more serious toward the end when one couple musically reflects that they still love each other after 30 years of tension and trials in a song called “Shouldn’t I Be Less in Love With You?” Then there’s “The Very First Dating Video of Rose Ritz,” a scene that shows how devastating divorce can be. Finally, there’s the funny-but-at-the-same-timepoignant scene called “I Can Live with That,” in which an old man, played convincingly in a Billy Crystal-like manner by Mayer, picks up a woman at a funeral after they agree that at their age they are no longer looking for perfection in a mate. Something, of course, younger men and women would be wise to learn early. Continued on Page 38

Take the NJ Lighthouse Challenge: Eleven Stops, One 48-Hour Weekend

N

ew Jersey certainly doesn’t have the most lighthouses of any state in the United States, but all of the stillmaintained lighthouses in the Garden State can be visited, and most climbed, in two days without putting too much strain on your gas budget or your knees. And that’s what hundreds – perhaps, if the weather is nice, thousands – of people will be doing on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20 and 21. They’ll be participating in The Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey, an annual event that is a must-do part of many a family’s autumn. The goal of the challenge is to visit and, health permitting, conquer the steps of 11 lighthouses: • The Tinicum Rear Range along the banks of the Delaware River in Paulsboro. • The East Point Lighthouse at the mouth of the Maurice River in Heislerville, Cumberland County. • The Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in North Wildwood. • The Cape May Lighthouse. • The Finn’s Point Range, another Delaware River light in Pennsville. • Long Beach Island’s very own “Ol’ Barney,” the Barnegat Lighthouse. • The Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City. • The Navesink Twin Lights in Highlands. • The Sea Girt Lighthouse. • The Sandy Hook Lighthouse. • The re-created Tucker’s Island Lighthouse in Tuckerton. The lighthouses themselves are just half the fun. There’s so much else to see. Tucker’s Island is located in the Tuckerton Seaport. The Barnegat Lighthouse, actually located in Barnegat Light (you can be sure that will confuse at least one lighthouse hunter who will

be driving up and down Route 9 in Barnegat), is located in a state park that features nature paths and a jetty with a fantastic view. The Finn’s Point Range is located in the 3,000-acre Supawna Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. The Absecon Lighthouse, the state’s tallest, is within walking distance of Atlantic City’s Showboat Casino. “You will enjoy touring the great state of New Jersey as you work to earn a souvenir at each tour site to show your efforts and accomplishment,” reads the Lighthouse Challenge web site. Along the way you may even discover a new side of New Jersey as the lighthouses tend to be in less-populated, coastal areas which still maintain the charm often lost in the more densely populated areas of our fine state.” Nor are lighthouses the only featured attractions. Two lifesaving stations, in Ocean City and Stone Harbor, are included in the self-guided, take-it-at-your-own-pace tour, as are two museums, the Barnegat Light Historical Museum and the Cape May County Historical Museum. Directions to all of the lights, museums and lifesaving stations, along with the hours for each attraction, can be found at the Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey’s web site, lighthousechallengenj.org. Some of the attractions charge an admission fee; others request a donation. That, too, however, is good. “The lighthouses,” says the Lighthouse Challenge organizers, “encourage the public to take advantage of this special weekend to financially support and preserve the maritime history of our state as we face the same economic challenges as other sectors of commerce.” — Rick Mellerup

‘Envisions’ Exhibit Focuses on Creative Process

Emerging Artists Break Barriers Comedy

E

merging artists and faculty members of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts are the forces behind the “Envisions” exhibit currently at the Gallery at Michael Ryan Architects in Loveladies. The academy has the distinction of being the oldest art school in the nation, with famous alumni including Thomas Eakins, William Merritt Chase, Cecilia Beaux, John Sloan, Robert Henri and John Marin, to name a few. The school was instrumental in the revival of realism and figurative painting in the 1970s. “Envisions” co-curators Sheri Hansen, graduate of PAFA in the master’s program, and Jason Ward, PAFA fine arts graduate, handpicked the artists from the PAFA community. “One of the benefits of putting this show together is we get to work with artists we’ve worked with in the school,” said Ward, “artists we’ve had conversations with, artists that we know artistically at an intimate level. We understand what’s important to them in their process, why they make the work they do, they way they do. As different as all these works appear visually, the underlying structure of why they made them is very similar, and that for us, that ties it all together.” Hansen said “Envisions” is about the “artists’ practice or process.” “Some artists have a concept and then they map it out and execute it. Whereas, these artists start with a material and they allow the execution of it to lead up to their imagery. I think a lot of artists would describe their work as a process. There’s something that they love about what paint can do, in mixing colors, pushing them together on a surface and creating a threedimensionality. There are building blocks to making artwork, something I would call the artists’ craft, developing how you like to move the physical material and then deciding how can you relate that to your imagery, to meaning and to poetry.” Matthew Calaizzo’s “Warrior Run, Pennsylvania” is a woodcut print with mountains in the distance, but the artist also printed the wood grain itself, flat on the picture plane. “It’s a play between what it actually is (the wood) and the evolution of the work,” said Hansen. An abstract by J. Gordan titled “Eastern State” is a play on words, said Hansen. “It is influenced by walking up and seeing this imposing building in the urban landscape, but it also reminded him of different eastern philosophies.” Hansen also appreciates the artist’s use of building materials such as wood glue, graphite and wood stain – materials an artist might not normally use. A sculpture by Kirsten L. Fisher Price titled “It Happened Like This,” of pipe, wood branches and metal, may present a puzzle to the viewer. “She works with materials Continued on Page 38

P

ortrait artist Tom Doyle is Pine Shores Art Association’s artist of the month. Doyle is well known in the association as an informal teacher and mentor of the Sunday afternoon portrait sessions held at the gallery on Stafford Avenue. Of the 40 or so pastel and oil portraits on exhibit, not one is a self-portrait, and that speaks to his unassuming grace and gentlemanly character. This retrospection of his work starts with an early still life he completed in 1964, through the period he worked as an illustrator in New York and created four of the iconic Breck Girls, a shampoo advertising campaign in the 1960s and ’70s. One of Doyle’s Breck Girl illustrations is housed in the Smithsonian collection. There are also sensitive portraits of his mother and Pine Shore’s artist friends as well as an assortment of attractive models. Doyle’s soft

handling of facial landmarks assures a pleasing, though accurate portrait. Doyle graduated from Pratt Institute of Art in 1955, and for many years did comps and illustrations for Madison Avenue ad agencies. In retirement he has completed the bulk of the work on display, though he also enjoys copying the masters. Doyle has won numerous prizes and ribbons from the Pastel Society of America, Ocean County College, the Ocean County Art Guild, and several awards for entries in Pine Shores Art Association shows. He was thrilled this spring when his granddaughter received her BFA with honors from Pratt. The public is invited to view Doyle’s work in the Pine Shores art gallery through October, open Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m., Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. and Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. —P.J.

Chatsworth Cranberry Festival Celebrates NJ’s Sour Little Berry

T

he 29th annual Cranberry Festival will be held in the center of the town of Chatsworth on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 20 and 21. More than 160 arts and crafts and food vendors and more than 35 different antiques dealers will be in attendance each day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, selling anything and everything handcrafted, oldfashioned and/or cranberry. “If you can make it out of cranberries, we have it at the festival,” said Lynn Giamalis, chairwoman of the Festival Committee of Chatsworth. “Cranberry mustard, vinegar, jams, jellies, marmalade, ice cream, muffins, cake, dumplings, fritters, fudge. If there’s something you can make cranberries with, someone will do it.” Well, New Jersey is the nation’s third largest cranberry harvester. What else did you expect? The festival has been celebrated for the past 29 years in tribute of the area’s cranberry cultivation, which began in the 19th century. Its main goal has been to help restore and preserve the White Horse Inn, which was built in the early 1800s. The hotel was near ruin before the townspeople decided to save it. Fully restored, it now stands as the town’s community center. “But we still need to raise funds to maintain it,” explained Giamalis. “And people love going to the festival. Each year it gets bigger and bigger,” she added. The Bullzeye Band will be entertaining guests throughout the weekend from 11 a.m.

to 4 p.m. Influenced by legendary musicians such as Lynryd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers and Tracy Lawrence, among others, the band will be playing some of the greatest country, funk and Southern rock music, both covers and originals. A pack of wolves from the Howling Woods Farm, featured in Disney’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” film, will also make a guest appearance. An Antique and Classic Automobiles Show, featuring more than 100 vehicles, will take place all day on Sunday, weather permitting. It’s a good idea to arrive at the festival early, as the small town gets harder to navigate through once it fills up with excited eventgoers.

Hear a ‘Spirited’ Talk on Colonial Taverns

T

he Friends of the Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in Surf City will hold an open house at the facility on Sunday, Oct. 21. Gina Ciccone, publicity director for the Friends, said a reception begins at 2 p.m. At 2:45 p.m., storyteller David Emerson presents “The Lure and Lore of Liquor: Tavern Beverages of the American Revolution.” The co-owner of History on the Hoof, Emerson will explore colonial drinking customs and the beverages that were available in an 18thcentury tavern. Program coordinator Nancy Petralia said the purpose of the open house is to introduce the public to the Friends as well as to programs and services offered at the branch. Forms for joining the group will be available. “We’ll start off with some socializing and then have what looks like a very entertaining program,” she said. Emerson said in a telephone interview that

during the 18th century, rum was high on the list of tavern favorites. “It wasn’t like the rum we have today,” he said. “It was a very dark rum, and it was quite strong.” He said gin carried “a social stigma because it was cheap and easy to make.” “But it was very popular in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York because of the Dutch settlers,” he said. “It was the Dutch who introduced gin to taverns in England. In a sense, gin was the heroin of the 18th century.” Emerson said he would also share drink recipes that people could make it home, such as Fish House Punch. The concoction consisted of juice squeezed from 18 lemons, two gallons of spring water, a pound of refined white sugar and two quarts of rum. “It was delicious and quite potent,” he said. For more information and to register for the program, call the branch at 609-494-2480. —E.E.

Federal, County and Local Funds Join Forces to Preserve Pocket Marsh

I

t’s only a “pocket” marsh, just a backwash where the rolling salt marsh transitions into a maritime forest of holly, oak, pine and sassafras trees. And this parcel of land, off Great Bay Boulevard in Little Egg Harbor Township, is hemmed in by township and county roads, yet ospreys soar over it and kingfishers dive into its salty creek looking for minnows as the tide washes through twice a day, coaxing tiny fiddler crabs and periwinkles out of the cord grass. This marsh could have been developed; its western, upland edge that fronts Center Street was zoned commercial. But luckily, the marsh adjoins the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, a federal entity created in 1997 to promote the responsible management of the Great Bay and Little Egg Harbor estuaries through scientific research, education and stewardship. On Thursday, Oct. 11, just eight days shy of the JCNERR’s 15th anniversary, off icials from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, JCNERR, Ocean County Natural Lands Trust and Little Egg Harbor Open Space Committee came together to celebrate the preservation of the marsh and dedicate it to Fred and Judy Grassle, two internationally known marine scientists. Efforts to preserve the marsh go back 15 years because the original owner was not a willing seller. Ocean County Freeholder John Bartlett, chairman of the county’s parks and recreation committee, said the piece was purchased from the heirs of the Griffith Estate for $195,000. The JCNERR staff, including Watershed Coordinator Lisa Auermuller, successfully applied for a $100,000 NOAA grant, while Ocean County kicked in $95,000 in openspace funds to secure the deed to the marsh. A week later, the Little Egg Harbor Township Committee voted

Ocean County will hold the deed while the JCNERR will work to incorporate the marsh into its educational programs. Auermuller said the long-term plan is to create an interpretive trail and boardwalk from the educational building at 130 Great Bay Blvd. and continue research started by Ken Able, director of the Rutgers Marine Field Station, which is located at the very end of the road and the marsh.

During the dedication, Michael Migliori, project specialist from NOAA, said the marsh was a perfect example of how federal funds could be leveraged at the state and local level to make an impact on the coast in keeping with the intent of the Coastal Zone Management Act. Fred Grassle was the first director of the Marine and Coastal Sciences Department at Rutgers University. Mike De Luca, JCNERR manContinued on Page 37

esidents on the east end of Fairview Avenue in Beach Haven who have complained about a major construction project at an oceanfront home starting during the summer are also asking borough officials about looking into contractor vehicles parked on streets. At the August borough council meeting, several homeowners said 100 pilings would be installed and the four-day demolition of the home had created excessive noise and traffic on nearby borough streets. The home was being razed to make room for a larger residence. They suggested that such a massive undertaking should wait until after the summer season. During the public portion of last week’s meeting, resident Thomas Sullivan said that since Sept. 21, a “box truck” has been parked in front of his house. “It has not moved, and I don’t know how long it is going to be there,” he said. “It is 20 feet long, 12 feet high, and I can’t see across the street.” Sullivan said the truck is being used for storing construction equipment. “I don’t know if this would be considered an abandoned vehicle,” said Sullivan. “We’d like to get some relief.” Another resident, Don Lenhard, said that when he asked someone by the truck why he could park there, he replied, “Because I can.” “I can understand it being there during working hours, but it shouldn’t be there all the time,” he said. “It doesn’t seem like they have much consideration for us.”

THIS LAND: Capturing a bald eagle flying over High Bar Harbor must have been this photographer’s catch of the day, maybe the year.

Borough Manager Richard Crane said that if the truck is properly registered and insured, and is not sitting on private property, there’s “not much we can do.” “We’d have to look into changing the ordinance,” he said. Crane said the only construction restrictions during the summer are drawing water from the bay or ocean for installing pilings. “Contractors use high-pressurized water, and the work leaves a lot of large hoses lying around, which would be very inconvenient for people going to the beach,” he said. “But that does not prohibit builders from installing pilings through alternate means, like pounding them into the sand, which causes vibrations.” Councilman Robert Keeler said the council would continue discussions with Borough Engineer Frank Little and other professional staff members concerning construction and vehicle parking. — Eric Englund ericenglund@thesandpaper.net

Annual Dune Grass Planting Effort Grows

V

olunteers planted 25,000 pieces of dune grass throughout Long Beach Island Saturday, from Holgate to Loveladies, as part of an annual effort sponsored by Lorry’s Island End Motel, the LBI Business Alliance and Long Beach Township. “We had a record number of people – 160,” including local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, said Lorry’s owner Bill Hutson, all of whom helped to plant a record amount of the grass, which originated as 250 bundles provided by the township. “We started this eight years ago with five people,” Hutson added. He’s pleased that the effort continues to grow, and he hopes even more individuals, groups and businesses consider helping out in coming years. He also encourages oceanfront homeowners to call him if they’d like to take part in the future plantings – which includes an afternoon barbecue at Lorry’s, sponsored by the motel and the LBI Business Alliance – or if they would like the dunes in front of their house to be planted. As Hutson pointed out, he and township Recycling and Clean Communities Coordinator Angela Contillo Andersen are working together to devise a more comprehensive dune grass planting initiative that includes cooperation with the other Island towns and area organizations. “Dune grass (American beach grass) is a soldier on the front lines of storms,” said Andersen. “The root system acts as intricate mat that deters storm surge from washing away the sand dune systems. ...

hen Manahawkin resident Tom Logue, a 28-year mail carrier on Long Beach Island, received the National Association of Letter Carriers’ National Hero of the Year Award in Washington, D.C. last month, he said he’d had no idea he would receive as much attention as he did. He was recognized for his rescue last summer of an 8-year-old boy who was caught in a rip current off the beach at East 33rd Street in Beach Haven. He attributed his recognition to The SandPaper’s 2011 coverage of the event. “The SandPaper was the one that started the whole thing,” said Logue. “That article, how it made it to D.C. with the rest of the nominations in the United States for the award, I don’t know. But that’s what started it for me. So I owe The SandPaper a lot.” Logue was enjoying a relaxing day at the beach with his family on Father’s Day last year when he said he noticed the young boy struggling in the water. He had been keeping a watchful eye on the child after noticing he was swimming near the undertow. “The water was really rough, and sure enough, a big wave hit the kid and he was driven out farther into the ocean. It was like he had a rope tied around him,” Logue remembered. “He tried to say, ‘Help,’ but all he got out was the first letter. That was it. Then he went under.” Logue immediately rushed into the water to save the boy before anyone else, including the lifeguards, was able to realize what was happening. After battling the ocean’s strong currents while remaining calm for the boy’s sake, he reached the shore, where he was greeted by an awe-stricken crowd and the boy’s thankful father. Later that week, The SandPaper’s report on Logue’s heroism was spotted hanging on the walls in restaurants and shops across the Island. Wherever he went, he said, he was stopped by people who wanted to thank him for his courageous endeavor. He said he even had to call for backup on his mail route because he was constantly being pulled over by locals and tourists who wanted to congratulate him. Continued on Page 37

SC Council Studies Expense of Sending Students to SRHS Dogs on Beach Issue Tabled for Now

S

urf City is not happy with how much money it has to pay to the Southern Regional School District. That was the message delivered Wednesday night at the borough’s monthly meeting, during which the mayor and council passed a resolution agreeing to pay their share of the costs to Vito Gagliardi Jr., a lawyer specializing in finding ways to reduce allocations from towns that send their students to regional schools. Mayor Leonard T. Connors met with Gagliardi and all the mayors of Long Beach Island approximately two weeks prior to Wednesday’s meeting and discussed the proposed analysis Gagliardi could offer that might lead to “professional advice on how to lower the cost of our involvement with Southern Regional,” as Connors put it. “We’ve been discussing it for some time,” said Connors. “Gagliardi seems to have the inside track in regard to legal work he’s already done for Seaside Park and some other towns.” Gagliardi has 23 years of experience as a lawyer and is currently a principal of Porzio, Bromberg & Newman, for which he chairs the Education Law Team. Seaside Park has been a client of the firm for approximately eight years during analysis of a similar issue of costs paid to a regional school district. The firm has done related work throughout the state, the most prominent being a case involving North Haledon that went all the way to the Supreme Court of New Jersey. According to Gagliardi, preliminary work was done roughly six or seven years ago with Beach Haven and Long Beach Township officials, though that project did not proceed beyond an initial investigation. “It seems that all the mayors want this analysis to go forward, and, assuming that we are retained, we’d be pleased to do it,” said Gagliardi. “It’s the allocation of the regional school taxes that are an issue right now. You have a scenario where Long Beach Island towns send less than 20 percent of the kids and they pay more than 80 percent of the cost. So the idea is to look at that and to see what, if anything, can be done to modify that.” Surf City homeowners currently pay two separate school tax levies annually, for Southern Regional and for the Long Beach Island Consolidated School District. Surf City’s total tax levy for Southern Regional in 2012 is $3,566,801.67, according to Chief Financial Officer David Pawlishak. Residents have a regional school tax rate of 23.1 cents per $100 of assessed evaluation. With the average property in Surf City yielding $679,000 of assessment, this means the average residential household pays $1,568.49 to Southern Regional each year. Gagliardi would not speculate on what potential legal theories might apply as it all depends on the analysis,

and every school district is different. “Frankly, if there’s no way to help them, we will be very straightforward and tell them that.” The resolution at Wednesday’s meeting called for up to $10,000 to be allocated to Gagliardi. Connors estimated Gagliardi’s fee to be between $50,000 and $60,000, shared among the Island municipalities. Connors said it is then prorated and reduced, and should end up costing the borough only what he estimated to be between $3,000 and $4,000. The meeting with Gagliardi came via invitation from the LBI mayors, who he said “clearly had some discussions before contacting me.” At the meeting with Gagliardi, Connors said a clear-cut blueprint was not laid out as to how allocations from LBI to Southern Regional might be lowered, though the mayor remained sold on the lawyer’s track record. The issue has been an ongoing one for years, for Connors especially, dating back prior to the creation of Southern Regional in 1957. Connors voiced opposition to the plan to construct the high school in 1955 during his first year living on LBI. He suggested then, with little support, that the high school be built on the Island instead. “I was the guy running with two left feet,” said Connors. “I got up in the firehouse and said, ‘This is crazy. We should be building the high school on the Island.’ Now whether or not that would float, who knows. The mistake was made in my opinion when building a school on the mainland and Continued on Page 38

THAT’S LIFE: Sinatra-voiced singer Dave Sodano brings smiles to seniors at St. Francis Community Center. He visited the center as part of its socialization and recreation services.

Sodano Livens Seniors’ Spirits As St. Francis Volunteer Entertainer

B

esides sponsoring the 18Mile Run on Oct. 7, St. Francis Community Center remains ever busy on a daily basis, working to offer senior services that on Oct. 3 included a musical performance by Dave Sodano, who volunteered to sing for the center’s weekday lunch audience. Sodano sang “Sinatra by the Sea” weekly throughout the summer at Spray Beach Inn, and on Wednesday he glided through Old Blue Eyes classics such as “My Way” and “New York, New York.” “He is so good I could sit here all day and listen to him,” said Barbara Hopf, 81, of Haven Beach. “You were terrific! It was a great afternoon,” Hopf told Sodano. Sodano is an example of performers who are part of the socialization and recreation portion of senior services offered by St.

Francis and might include, as it did on Wednesday, a meal offered as part of the congregate lunch program that seniors receive for a suggested donation of $2. “A lot of these people are single and home alone, and it’s a good way for them to have companionship together,” said Sodano, who riled up the crowd, coaxing them into singing along, and even getting volunteers like Sherry Schnepp into the act as part of a group of impromptu Rockettes who kicked up their legs while Sodano melted the seniors’ “little town blues” away. “We do a lot of nice things like having Dave Sodano come in, which is stuff that they really enjoy,” said Schnepp. “It can be awful lonely for many of them to sit at home by themselves, and this is good for socialization.” A calendar of events can be found

at stfranciscenterlbi.org. Linda Falb, director of senior services, makes that schedule, which includes an upcoming workshop on Oct. 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. that will illustrate the coming changes to Medicare in 2013. That workshop takes place at the Southern Ocean Service Center in Manahawkin, followed by a threesite luncheon. “At some point the nutrition programs will be moving there,” said Falb, though a date had not been set by press time. Falb said the center is always on the lookout for volunteer entertainers like Sodano. “If you have a talent that you may want to share with the community, give us a call. We’re always looking for new things for them, regardless of whether it’s an educational program, singing or anything.” — Michael Molinaro

LEH to Study Municipal Utilities Authority Finances

I

n light of a Press of Atlantic City newspaper story that published Little Egg Harbor Municipal Utilities Director David Johnson’s $201,000 salary, Little Egg Harbor Township Mayor John Kehm and the committee directed Township Engineer Jim Oris to do a study of the MUA, a separate municipal authority. At the Oct. 11 municipal meeting, Kehm answered questions from the public while asserting that although the township committee appoints members to the MUA committee, it has no power to direct MUA business. He did acknowledge that he had heard “a lot of people want to dissolve it.” “The MUA has their own committee meetings, attorneys and engineers,” said Kehm. “In my opinion, I believe the salary is too high, and we can take this opportunity to turn to our professionals to inspect the infrastructure and how much it would cost to replace something like that. The governing body doesn’t know what the cost-effectiveness is, what debts they have. Before we go in that direction, we have to know if it’s legal

and whether it has its advantages.” Deputy Mayor Ray Gormley added that not all the taxpayers in Little Egg Harbor are water and sewer ratepayers since not everyone is hooked up to the system. “To assume their debt now would mean those who are not on water and sewer would also assume that debt,” said Gormley. “The second and biggest problem is there are a lot of new communities with new infrastructure, but there are older sections of the township, like Mystic Island, where the infrastructure could be 50 to 60 years old. Those with the brand-new infrastructure would have to assume that debt” if and when they were replaced, said Gormley. “There’s not a person who is not irate about that salary; it’s absurd. But have you, as a ratepayer, ever attended an MUA meeting?” The MUA was created in 1972 and Little Egg Harbor entered into a service contract in 1976. The MUA owns and operates the potable water supply and wastewater collection system. The base rate has not had an increase in 15 years.

The committee adopted a resolution by title to have the engineer do a report on the MUA and its five-year projected plan, and a financial audit. Democratic candidate for committee Peter Ferwerda suggested the mayor and committee reach out to former Stafford Township Mayor and present-day County Administrator Carl Block and former Stafford Business Adminstrator and current Dover Township Administrator Paul Shives to get the information on how they dissolved Stafford’s MUA. “Get their game plan,” said Ferwerda. “According to the statutes of New Jersey, what you have made, you can take away.” Township Attorney Robin La Bue said the statute also states the authority has to concur with the dissolution. Since the last township meeting, where questions about a possible town-wide reassessment were discussed, Business Administrator Garrett Loesch said he and the mayor had met with Township Tax Assessor Joseph Sorrentino. “We had a positive and progressive meeting, and agreed

he can research” an in-house reassessment, said Loesch. “But our position is not formulated yet.” Kehm said the ad hoc committee formed to look into a solution to the town’s burgeoning tax appeals was still doing fact-finding. 'When we get all the information, we will have a good presentation from the subcommittee.” Township resident Art Mooney asked if the committee would rescind its resolution adopted earlier this year to go out to bid for a revaluation company. “Once we get all the information from the subcommittee, we will make our final determination,” said Kehm. Mooney asked if the presentation would be given before Election Day, Nov. 6, and Kehm said that was the goal. Oris recommended that the township award a bid of $241,132 to Warriners’ Construction Inc. of Egg Harbor Township to construct the building shell of the ball rooms and concession stand at the Little Egg Continued on Page 37

Ocean County ‘Superintendent of the Year’

LEH School District Super Wins Award

PERFECT MATCH: Chris Capp has owned nine different types of dogs in his lifetime. After adopting two pit bulls, he says he’d never own a different breed.

Far From Vicious: Pit Bull Awareness Defeats Stereotypes C hris Capp, 62, of Cedar Bonnet Island, grew up loving dogs. Over the course of his lifetime, he has owned nine different varieties, including a Labrador retriever, poodle and mixed breeds. But when he started volunteering at the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter three years ago, he did not think he would wind up falling in love with and adopting an American pit bull terrier. In honor of National Pit Bull Awareness Month, dedicated to changing perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their owners, Capp did not have any trouble coming up with enough good things to say about the misjudged breed. “Many people think they are killers, that they’re brutal monsters. But that’s what I find so ironic and so crazy, because of the nine dogs I’ve cohabitated with, the two pit bulls have been the most docile, the most friendly (and) the most loving out of all of them,” said Capp, playfully kissing his most recent adoptee, Sarah, a year-old pit bull he rescued from the shelter just a month ago, after his first pit bull passed away from an accident. Originally looking for a way to spend time with cats and dogs without the responsibility of taking care of a pet after traveling and moving to Florida part-time, Capp turned to the local shelter in Stafford Township to get his “animal fix.” Before he knew it, he had adopted a 1½-year-old pit bull named Daisy. She was contrary to everything pit bulls are assumed to be:

violent, temperamental, disobedient and unpredictable. According to Capp, many people who met Daisy believed she had been trained as a service dog because she was so intelligent and well behaved. Or they presumed he was a dog whisperer. “I don’t think that’s it at all,” Capp admitted. “You literally tell these dogs something once and they get it through their head. Training is a misnomer. You just simply talk to them like people,” he said. Dorothy Reynolds, president of the Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter, attested to the aptitude of the breed. They were once the breed of choice, after TV shows such as “The Little Rascals” gave them a good reputation. Unfortunately, the public is now fearful of them because they have become so widely used in dog fighting, primarily for their acute trainability and ownership loyalty. “Now as soon as people hear ‘pit bull’ they think, ‘dog fighting, Michael Vick,’ etcetera,” said Reynolds. “People who do come in, however, and give the pit bulls a chance, come back to us later with pictures and stories, saying they never thought they would adopt a pit bull, but it’s turned out to be the most wonderful, loving dog. And they’re so glad that they did.” Pit bulls were once known as the “nanny dog” and were often used as babysitters for young children. In Capp’s case, Daisy and Sarah have

T

he Ocean County office of the state Department of Education has selected Little Egg Harbor School District Superintendent Frank Kasyan as Ocean County Superintendent of the Year. Kasyan accepted the award at the Sept. 17 board of education meeting. In a subsequent interview with the Tuckerton Leader, Kasyan said the award was not just for him personally but for all who work in the district, particularly the ever-present Business Administrator Lynn Coates and Administrative Secretary Madge Rosenberg. Kasyan is the Ocean County representative on several state committees: the Legislative, Special Education and Superintendent Executive committees. “And we are piloting the new teacher evaluation process this year, and I sit on that committee. So everyone knows Little Egg Harbor; we are on the map because of our efficiency.” Kasyan pointed out the recent accomplishments and future goals in the district. “Our transportation system has been rated in the top five in the state. And the state sent two groups from Washington to come visit our preschool. We rank as the highestachieving B Factor Group in the state. “I think it’s wonderful for us. And there are several new initiatives we are working on. “Everyone understands the Early Childhood initiative that has made us one of the top three in the state. Principal Connie Fugere has made the transition to the building so easy, and Patti DeGeorge has worked very closely with her. We collaborate here. “That whole (preschool) building wouldn’t be there without the (grant) money and Lynn (Coates) has worked tirelessly on that. The business office has been working for the past five years in getting funding that would not impact the taxpayers. “Phoenix Financial Advisors got the five-year lease-purchase agreement with Bank of America for $1.8 million,” interjected Coates. “Everybody knows about our

preschool initiative, but what they don’t know about is the energy savings that is going on here, as well,” continued Kasyan. “We have solar panels on each of our buildings that have grossed us $50,576 through selling the SRECs (solar credits sold back to energy companies), plus the reduced cost of our electric bill. “On top of that, we are now involved in energy education. Trina Reigelman is our energy education person, and we have grossed $100,889 from the energy savings from October 2011. That’s from signs that remind people to turn off the lights and computers. She was a para-professional who worked here, and was hired with a part-time position for $16,000 a year. She comes here early in the morning and late at night, when school is not in session, going around checking for all of us in every building.” Coates added that another energy project that was funded by a grant from the state Board of Public Utilities replaced about 100 old CRT monitors with energy-efficient LCD computer monitors. “Our brand is ‘Excellence in Education.’ From looking at our scores, they are indicative of the focus within our staff,” Kasyan remarked. “Our staff has embraced the redistricting initiative to create neighborhood schools. Our K-6 schools allow us to have family members together, and now we have more parent involvement in our schools than we ever have. “It seems like all the pieces are falling into place. “We have three new curriculums that we are implementing. When the NJ Ask scores come out, you will see we did very well in math and science. We did OK in language arts and literacy, but for our factor group, we did well. So I attribute that to the teachers who embraced the curriculum. We had 51 teachers pilot the Go Math program from Houghton Mifflin last year – 1,000 children. The American Reading Co. has made an

impact. Last year we saw an average of 1.8 years of growth in (students’) literacy, which is huge for us. Now we have the Zaner-Bloser writing curriculum that 60 teachers are piloting. Principals Deborah Giannuzzi (George J. Mitchell School) and Troy Henderson (Frog Pond School) have both embraced the instructional leadership role as principals, and we are seeing the results. “Recently in the teachers’ contract, the board negotiated having 42 teachers stay for one hour a week, 26 times, to give children after-school instruction. That’s huge. There’s been a big commitment here.” The three-year teacher contract was settled on Sept. 19 with a 2 percent raise each year, with teachers also paying a much larger percentage of their health coverage. “Another new initiative was getting involved in ‘e-pals,’ affording student opportunity to partner with a class in another country. They take classes together; they start with sending letters to each other. “Every classroom we have is a ‘smart’ classroom. They all have smart boards (connected to computers and Internet); all have projectors, availability to printers, digital cameras – which is awesome. “People look at us and say, ‘Your student/teacher ratio is large,’ but our average ratio is 12.3 students per teacher.” Another pilot program is aimed at equipping 120 students in two grades with Kindles so the children don’t have to carry heavy textbooks. “So when you ask the question ‘How do you become Superintendent of the Year in Ocean County,’ it’s not me; it’s all the great things that are happening in the district through the wonderful people we have here – from the teachers to the custodians, the transportation director, business administrator and our efficient administrative secretary, Madge Rosenberg.” — Pat Johnson patjohnson@thesandpaper.net

Geocaching and Ghost Tours Planned for Spring

AC Electric Co. Sponsors Free Tree Give-Away

A

tlantic City Electric is providing 3,000 free trees to customers through Energy-Saving Trees, an Arbor Day Foundation program that helps conserve energy and reduce electricity bills through strategic tree planting. Customers can reserve their free trees at arborday.org/atlantictrees. The program will continue until all 3,000 trees are reserved. The saplings, two to four feet tall, will be delivered directly to customers at an ideal time for planting. An online tool helps customers estimate the annual energy savings that will result from planting trees in the most strategic locations on their property. They may reserve up to two trees and are expected to care for and plant them in the location provided by the online tool. Trees offered include Washington hawthorn, white dogwood, bald cypress, American beech, hackberry, river birch and sugar maple. “This program benefits the environment and can help customers save money on their energy bills,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. The Energy-Saving Trees online tool was created by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Davey Institute, a division of Davey Tree Expert Co., and uses peer-reviewed scientific research from the USDA Forest Service i-Tree software to calculate estimated benefits. In addition to providing approximate energy savings, the tool also estimates other benefits, including cleaner air, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and improved stormwater management.

NJ Joins Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant Programs In Research Plan

T

he New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium recently partnered with a number of Mid-Atlantic programs to complete a plan to advance coordinated research that promotes economic and environmental sustainability throughout the region. “The ocean and coastal areas of the Mid-Atlantic face a number of challenges from threats such as climate change and habitat degradation, opportunities for economic development from offshore energy, commercial and recreational fisheries, and other sustainable uses of coastal and marine resources,” NJSGC Director of Communications Kim Kosko explained. “Impacts from climate change, including sea-level rise and extreme weather events, are predicted to increase in the coming years, with

LBI Residents Aim to Increase Off-Season Tourism

A

fter the nation’s economic collapse in 2009, Mary Ann Gutchigian began investigating the web for a better way to rent her home on Long Beach Island during the off-season. In the midst of her search, she stumbled upon a website for geocaching, a worldwide, outdoor treasurehunting game. The game uses a handheld GPSdevice to lead participants to a specific location, in search of a hidden canister called a geocache, which holds a unique object people can obtain and observe. It began in 2000 after GPS-enthusiast Dave Ulmer began testing the navigational accuracy of these systems, which had just been upgraded by the United States to include selective ability. The game instantly caught on and has become a fun, traveling adventure that has attracted more than four million people around the world. For many towns across the nation, geocaching has even become a source of economic growth, attracting adventure-seekers into local establishments. Intrigued by the game’s benefits, Gutchigian believes that setting up a geocaching trail on the Island will improve the chances of her house and others’ being rented, as well as help the area’s economy during the shoulder season. “Geocachers come in the offseason. They don’t like coming into an area that’s highly populated because they don’t want little kids misplacing the canisters,” said Gutchigian. “These people are diehards. They’ll come out in blizzards and go kayaking, or scuba-diving in the ocean or the bay to find these caches. Then they’ll stop to get coffee at Wawa, eat at our restaurants, use our gas stations and increase revenue,” she explained. Many people in the area have already stashed geocaches across the Island and on the mainland. By organizing a specific trail of caches, Gutchigian believes the game will help increase year-round tourism. “If tourists are coming to the Island in the off-season for geocaching, and they’ve never been here before, once they walk the beaches and the bay and they see all the stores offering kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, Jet Skis and fishing and everything else, you better believe that they’re going to come back in the summertime, not to geocache, but to vacation with their family and friends,” she said. Many local institutions are behind Gutchigian’s theory, including the Long Beach Island Business Alliance, Bay Village, Nardi’s, The Haymarket, A Little Bite of Italy

and the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce. Many believe the LBI Geocache Trail will be most effective when planned around the Island’s biggest affairs, such as Chowderfest. “It’s a worldwide competition for people of all ages, and if people get their family and friends together, it can be a great way for everyone to learn about this amazing environment we have here (on LBI),” Gutchigian explained. “There are tons and tons of things to do around here, but you can’t do it in the summertime; it’s insane. If you come in the off-season, it’s nice and slow-paced. You have the road to yourself, the stores are still open, the restaurants are open and you can just take your time and do whatever you want,” she added. Meanwhile, local Ship Bottom resident Maggie O’Neill, affectionately known as the “ghost girl of LBI,” hopes her idea for a ghost story driving tour will also help the area’s off-season tourism. The haunting excursion is a spinoff of her “Into the Mystic Legend and Ghost Tours,” a walking tour that has taken place in downtown Beach Haven every summer since 2008. With the help of the Long Beach Island Museum, O’Neill said she has been able to maintain the eccentric walking tour as many excited tourists have been apt to join. Now looking to expand the circuit by

including a road tour, navigated through CD, she said she hopes to incorporate 12 to 15 different ghost stories that have occurred on the Island, anywhere from Holgate to Barnegat Light. “I think it’s going to be terrific in the off-season. I think it’s a wonderful thing to be able to do,” said O’Neill. “People can come from all over and spend the day driving to the different, mysterious spots on LBI. If businesses have a mysterious story, much like on my walking tours, and they’re on the CD, it’s a terrific advertisement,” she added. The driving tours will also make for a great escape from the colder fall and winter weather, as well as the more humid spring and summer climate, as participants can stay in their cars. “The weather is not as much of a factor during a driving tour as it is with the walking tours,” O’Neill stated. “If it’s a rainy day, it’s a great thing to do. You can just hop in the car and drive to the different places. “The traffic is not half as bad during the week, especially during the off-season, and because you buy the CD you can go anytime you want,” she explained. The tour is expected to last about two hours, when factoring in actual driving time. O’Neill believes participants will be interested in getting out of their cars to check out the area cited on the CD, especially at shops

and restaurants where they might be interested in purchasing a souvenir, or sitting down for a meal. So far, O’Neill has collected four ghost stories from areas across the Island, including Barnegat Light, Ship Bottom and Long Beach Township. The tales take place in all different spots, from commercial businesses to residential properties. One story even takes place on the beach. It's a fun project, and I think it would be a great thing to do,” she said. “Many years ago back in the early ’80s, before I moved here permanently, I rented for a week (on LBI). It was a rainy week, and I got ahold of the book (Legends of Long Beach Island: Stirring Tales of Ghosts, Haunted Houses, Pirates and Much More) by Charles Adams and went to all the haunted spots. So I always remember how much fun it was, and from that moment on I knew I always wanted to do something like this,” she added. Both Gutchigian and O’Neill hope to have their tours up and running this spring. If you wish to contact O’Neill about a ghost story on LBI, e-mail lunasea32@ gmail.com.

significant implications for ocean and coastal areas across the region. These are just a few of the important issues that need to be addressed through science-based ocean ecosystem management.” Development of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Research Plan began with a comprehensive review of reports and recommendations from across the region, said Kosko. Stakeholder workshops, an online stakeholder survey and an open public comment period

helped focus and refine research priorities to support regional ocean resource management. The project also identified top research needs in five key areas: climate change, offshore energy, water quality and quantity ecosystem structure, and function and human dimensions. The four-year project – for which NJSCG joined Sea Grant programs in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, as well as the Gerard J. Mangone

Center for Marine Policy at the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, in cooperation with New York Sea Grant – was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration through the Sea Grant Regional Initiative. “The state Sea Grant programs in the Mid-Atlantic have a long history of collaboration and coordination on regional-scale priorities,” Kosko noted. During the last two years, the

groups have jointly responded to research and outreach opportunities on sea level rise, invasive species and rip currents, and facilitated a state-federal partnership to map ocean canyon habitats.

Three Run for Two Seats in Little Egg Harbor Race

Photographs by Pat Johnson

Democratic challenger Peter Ferwerda By PAT JOHNSON he race for two three-year township committee seats in Little Egg Harbor was ratcheted up a notch when Peter Ferwerda from the Warren Grove section of the township accepted the Democratic nomination as a write-in on the primary ballot. He is challenging Republican incumbents Ed Nuttall and Art Midgley. Nuttall and Midgley are running on their record; Ferwerda is running on changing the all-Republican governing body. The candidate interviews are presented here in alphabetical order. Peter Ferwerda has been a resident of Little Egg Harbor for more than 50 years and with his wife, Christine, has two grown children, one grandson and one “grand-dog.” Ferwerda has never served on the elected town government but served at various times on several committees and boards in the township for 17 years, including the planning board (chairman), environmental commission, recreation advisory committee and economic development committee. He was also elected in the early 1990s to serve on the Pinelands Regional Board of Education, where he was chairman of the policy and procedures committee and the buildings and grounds committee. He is a member of the LEH chapter of the AARP. Ferwerda retired in 2002 from the N.J. Department of Transportation, where he was a project manager in the Division of Planning, Research, Local Government Services and Economic Development. He has completed education in the State Certified Public Managers Program and in project management from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Graduate School. He holds several professional practice licenses in engineering, planning and land surveying. Ferwerda’s published campaign statement says: “Our local government is too busy providing high paying jobs along with overpriced contracts to their friends and contributors – elected officials are there to serve the residents

T

Republican incumbent Art Midgley and perform the job they were elected to perform. We deserve better: basic municipal town services, while keeping our property taxes down. “There is no Republican or Democratic way to ‘fill a pothole’ but there is a wrong way to run a township that benefits politicians and not the taxpayers of Little Egg Harbor. We can no longer afford to let the developers and polluters destroy our township and area ecosystem.” In an interview with the Tuckerton Leader, he elaborated. “I’m concerned about the entirety of our community and also what our neighboring communities dump on us. For example, the Pinelands is a place where water is captured and through underground streams, surfaces and (it) supplies the wetlands that are related to the tourism industry. I’m talking about ecological relationships; the bay is important, and the bay cannot exist without the Pinelands supplying it with fresh water.” Ferwerda said the township needs to focus on an “intelligent balance” to ensure the health of the bay and the bay-related economies. Another area of pollution is in some of the township’s lagoons. “The lagoon ends collect garbage. That’s unacceptable, in my mind; it’s a health hazard. And stagnant water, such as the Harbor View retention basin that has water in it for several days after a rainfall, becomes a mosquito problem. And then we have to worry about diseases that are transmitted.” His campaign statement reads, “I am committed to work for change and provide for lower property taxes, televised Township (committee) meetings, complete transparency: stop wasting taxes and utility dollars on under-qualified administrators with overpriced employees. I stand for maximum cost benefit for ‘we’ the taxpayers and am committed to work for every resident. “We can no longer afford the current Little Egg Harbor Republican machine.” Ferwerda said, “When I say underqualified administrators, I am talking

about the MUA that pays the executive director how many thousands of dollars? Does he have a master’s degree in business administration? The likelihood of that is almost impossible. We also have other people who work for the township who are not necessarily highly skilled professionals. “One of the problems I have with transparency of taxpayer dollars: We supposedly have a lean and mean budget, but we have created how many new positions? If we are keeping within the ability of the taxpayers to pay, how is it we now have money to hire these people? “It’s called fiscal responsibility.” Ferwerda postulated that the municipality is shrinking as the casino industry retracts. “If we have an outward migration of population, why do we need to expand government, when maybe the status quo – or through management examination – we could come up with more efficient ways to provide the same service at a more affordable price to the taxpayer?” * * * Republican Art Midgley has been on the township committee since 2004 and has lived in Little Egg Harbor since 1973. Midgley is married and has three grown children. The committeeman graduated from Seton Hall with a B.S. in business administration and is currently working on his master’s at Monmouth University. He serves as liaison to the town board of health, the senior advisory board and the township’s three fire districts. Midgley is employed by Ocean County as coordinator of the School Mentoring Program, recruiting volunteer mentors for “at risk” children. He is also director of the Gang Awareness Program. Because of budget cuts, Midgley is the sole voice of the program and gives presentations to all the schools in Ocean County. “I talk with the kids for 10 to 15 minutes, and then show them a 10-minute video on what to do if they are approached by a gang member. Then we have questions and answers; altogether,

Republican incumbent Ed Nuttall a 45-minute to an hour presentation. “I also talk about the anti-bullying program. You wouldn’t believe, but the biggest problem is between girls.” Midgley said the township committee has no intention of raising the tax rate. But whether the township goes for a revaluation or an in-house reassessment of properties, “the citizens should see a third of the property values (and subsequent taxes) go up, a third stay the same and a third go down,” he said. “We are losing money on tax appeals.” Midgley said he welcomes public discourse about the reassessment during municipal meetings. “Hearing everyone’s opinion is a good thing. We take it all in, weigh it and use our best judgment to make an educated decision, one that’s good for the majority. We’re not going to make everybody happy.” And he is optimistic about the township’s finances. “In 2010 we had to lay off so many people because our municipal aid was cut. Things are looking better. We’ve received federal grants (to rehire some police officers), and we are always looking for grants – grants are good. “Our public works has been streamlined. Our head of public works has been working harder, with less. And so has the police chief, while still providing services. “We’re looking for the recession to end – it can’t go on forever. I understand housing prices are starting to come up.” The candidate is also happy with the recycling figures from the county that show residents are doing a good job. “In all areas, the township employees give courteous service to the public. That’s what we strive for. It’s all about the quality of life. We live here, too; in some cases, our children and grandchildren do, too.” Midgley is most proud of his work on the committee as liaison to the 10-member senior advisory council, made up of one member from each of the senior communities. They meet once a month and invite guest speak-

ers to talk about issues of interest to seniors. “Last month we had Jane Maloney from Ocean County Senior Services, and Diane Disbrow from the Shore Conference Girl Scouts. We usually get between 30 and 35 seniors, and they take the information back to their communities. The most popular speaker is Police Chief (Richard) Buzby. The seniors love him. They hammer him with questions, which is good, as it opens a dialogue between the police and the seniors – a good dialogue, and that’s good for the community. “We also have our annual Senior Expo at the community center that has between 85 and 100 different organizations, like the Red Cross and tax experts from Trenton. We have free coffee and doughnuts, and they enjoy it.” * * * Ed Nuttall has lived in Little Egg Harbor since 1987 and owns Home Port Real Estate Agency on Radio Road. He has been a real estate agent for 30 years. Nuttall is a decorated Vietnam War veteran, a pilot with 159 combat missions. “I flew F4 Phantoms and got hit twice, and made it back to the base both times. I have a number of medals, including the Air Medal in 1971.” Nuttall was a senior command pilot in the New Jersey National Guard for eight years, flying F106 Interceptors. He graduated from Colorado State University with a B.S. in forest management. “I got a draft notice to serve in Vietnam the day I graduated,” he said. “I joined the Air Force and went to officer’s school pilot training. A little note of excitement: I did eject from an F4 Phantom in the Philippines when I was flying out of Clark Air Force Base. The plane malfunctioned and crashed, but I got back alive.” After Vietnam, Nuttall continued his education at Monmouth College, and is just six credits short of his master’s degree in business. “The GI Bill ran out, and I had six credits of electives to finish.” Continued on Page 38

History-Minded Scout To Receive Eagle Badge For His Barnegat Tour

W

ith parents being longtime members of the Barnegat Township Historical Society, it was no surprise that Christopher Brower developed an interest in his community’s past at a young age. So when it came to picking an Eagle Scout project, it did not take him long to decide on developing a self-guided walking tour of Barnegat’s historic sites. On Saturday, Nov. 10, Brower will be rewarded for his efforts when he receives his Eagle Badge at a Troop 26 court of honor ceremony at Manahawkin Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall. The project included planning of the tour route, obtaining permission from the township to place signs, soliciting donations for money and materials, creating and planning signs with assistance from troop members, compiling information for the tour and obtaining sponsorship from the Barnegat Historical Society. The tour begins at a sign located at the corner of East Bay Avenue and Route 9. The sign provides information about the town’s past, the tour and a picture of East Bay Avenue in the early 1900s. The walk can be customized for a walk of approximately 25 minutes to nearly an hour. “Many of our historic sites are within a few blocks of the downtown area,” said Cindy Janowiak, president of the historical society. “For a longer walk, participants can add the Rail Trail extension or the Historical Society Heritage Village. Parking is available on the north side of East Bay Avenue and the municipal parking lot adjacent to the park.

Janowiak said copies of the tour could be downloaded at the group’s web site, barnegathistoricalsociety. com. “We have gotten some e-mails from people who have really enjoyed the tour,” she said. Brower said that of all the historic sites, he finds the Heritage Village the most intriguing. “It is made up of buildings that represent different time periods of our town’s history,” he said. “You get a feeling of what life was like in the 18th and 19th centuries. I want other people to get an understanding of our town’s rich heritage.” His mother, Sandra Kellogg, is Heritage Village curator, while his father, Gary Brower, is a society pastContinued on Page 37

By VICTORIA LASSONDE rom one year to the next, the weather may vary, or the turnout, or the route, but the mission and spirit of the annual Motorcycle Toy Run remain the same: to make the holidays brighter for families in need. This year’s run, the “lucky” 13th annual, got unlucky with a cold, rainy day for its originally scheduled date, Oct. 7, and was postponed to the following Sunday, Oct. 14, which was sunny and temperate, ideal for a long scenic ride. Due to conflicts with other bike runs in the region, the date change resulted in a lower turnout than usual – 460 motorcycles, compared to the typical 800-plus – but more than 1,000 toys were collected for the cause. All the other components of the event were fully intact, from the giant American flag billowing from the tops of two Stafford Township Volunteer Fire Co. ladder trucks, to the bond among riders across lines of generations, cultures and bike styles, to the shared feeling of being a part of something meaningful, something greater than the sum of its parts. Sunday morning, the bikes assembled in the parking lot of South-

F

ern Regional High School, where riders registered, milled around, enjoyed coffee and snacks, secured their gear, made final trips to the restroom, where few could help some good-natured joking about the long line outside the men’s room while the ladies freely came and went (“This is how we feel all the time!” she might say. “Yeah, only we’re not bitching and moaning about it,” he might retort) and prepared to embark on a 65-mile journey. The bikes ranged from sporty and nimble to luxurious and plush; riders more accustomed to longer rides were easy to spot in the crowd, with their sheepskin seat covers and spacious saddle bags for road trip supplies. Elaborate custom paint jobs and jacket and helmet embellishments help individual riders put their unique stamp on the event. One standout in the lot was 4-yearold Logan Transue of Galloway, on his electric motorcycle complete with training wheels. He cruised around charming everyone with his sweet little tough-guy image, even offering a ride to a passenger about his size. At 4, Transue is already a Toy Run veteran, having participated the last three years in a row, his jacket patches identifying him as both a “wild child” and “Nana’s riding buddy.”

“He’s a motorcycle kid,” his mom, Dominique, said. “Nana” is Annamarie Sesta, who works in special education at Southern Regional and last year founded the Chrome Angelz, an all-women riding club. Normally Logan would ride on the back of her Honda Valkyrie, but this day he would ride with his grandfather instead. Nana’s passenger seat was reserved for Santa Claus, whom she would chauffer at the front of the pack. Along with Santa – a.k.a. Thomas Bearson of Whiting – Sesta’s everfaithful riding companion was her Chinese Crested Chihuahua, Foxy, whose custom denim coat bore her name and a pair of angel wings, befitting the Chrome Angelz club mascot. While “knowing you’re giving back” was Sesta’s favorite aspect of the Toy Run, another of her objectives for the day was to recruit new members for Chrome Angelz. With humanitarianism at the heart of its mission, the club regularly visits the elderly, the ill and the disabled in order to share the joy of riding with those who can’t experience it for themselves.

Hard Times Mean Late Water Ratepayers in Tuckerton

uring the Oct. 15 borough municipal meeting, Tuckerton Mayor Buck Evans defended the borough’s new policy of charging $50 for water disconnects and reconnects, enacted this year. The fee is necessary, he said, because of administrative costs incurred by the borough as it attempts to collect what’s owed. This last quarter in August, 600 property owners were sent late notices, then sent reminder notices and then told in September that their water would be shut off if payments were not received by Oct. 10, said Evans. “Out of 600, 350 people came in and paid, and unfortunately we had to go after 250 people,” he said. “And there

are about 100 people we can’t get to” to shut off their water. Evans said a radio news report on the situation painted Tuckerton in a bad light, when the practice of charging municipal fees is not uncommon. “I understand where residents are coming from, but if we don’t collect (water utility) funds, we have to impose a rate increase on those that do pay their bills, to take care of the revenue. “Our guys don’t want to go out and shut off the service. If residents would call, maybe we could work something out,” he continued. “But when you don’t pay your electric or your phone bill, it gets shut off. There’s no way of getting out of it.”

During the public forum, borough resident George Fisher complained that he had lost work hours and with a decreased income he was having a hard time juggling payments on all his bills. “It’s a sign of the times, I always paid my bills on time but I got very upset when the water was turned off and I had to pay the $100 surcharge.” The Otis Avenue resident asked for amnesty for all who had their water shut off. “Help people out; refund the $100, this one time.” Evans said if people have a hardship case, they should pick up the phone beforehand rather then let things slide. He suggested they contact the borough’s chief financial

officer. Business Administrator Jenny Gleghorn said that unfortunately, there are many repeat offenders, and the borough had no way to pick and choose who would get a break. “But pick up the phone or shoot us an e-mail.” Councilman Jim Edwards, chairman of the water utility department, said there were about $1.5 million worth of repairs that would have to be made in the next five to 10 years, including painting the water tower, and the borough needed the revenue. “We have to be able to finance these improvements,” he said.

Continued from Page 30 ager and associate director at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, said the day was an important one to celebrate the value of open space. “There are a lot of folks involved in the restoration and protection of Barnegat Bay, like (Ocean County Planning Board and Natural Lands Trust Advisory Co-director) Dave McKeon,” said De Luca. “In the mid-1990s, several individuals, including Ken Able, did a study to look at our valuable marsh systems, the fish, birds and vertebrates, and that led to the preparation of the Century Plan for Barnegat Bay, naming the top 100 land acquisitions for bay preservation, and this pocket marsh is one of those parcels,” he said. “Naming the marsh ‘The Grassle Marsh’ recognizes the contribution to stewardship made by Fred Grassle, the first director of the Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences,” continued De Luca. “Rutgers did a fantastic thing when they lured Fred from Woods Hole, but the real benefit was in getting his wife, Judy, in that package. “Judy Grassle is an accomplished marine scientist in her own right,” De Luca said. “Her research on the larvae of surf clams is particularly important to the economy of the region. She also worked to establish the Marine Sciences undergraduate program at Rutgers and is the coordinator and an outstanding mentor for youth.” De Luca then introduced Freeholder John Bartlett as “a coastal champion.” “Under his leadership, Ocean County has preserved more than 30,000 acres of open space, 3,000 acres of farmland and maintains 27 parks. If there is one true advocate of open space, it is John Bartlett, and today we are adding a few more acres to that legacy.” Bartlett said the Tuckerton Pocket Marsh, as it was known, “had been on the radar for quite a long time. It proves that when you have patience and a few dollars, things generally work out.” Bartlett introduced Little Egg Harbor Township Committeeman Gene Kobryn, who was on the original LEH Open Space Committee and chairs

Continued from Page 31 “It was the greatest week I ever had,” Logue declared. “I got a stack of letters from people in the mail, and this is no lie, I probably shook 500 hands, took 30 pictures (and) wrote a bunch of autographs because of The SandPaper’s picture and article. I didn’t buy lunch for two weeks. I even got standing ovations,” he said. A year later, Logue received a call from the NALC saying he had won the National Hero of the Year Award for the rescue. He was invited to the awards ceremony in September, alongside several other postal award recipients. Although thankful, he said he had hoped they could just send the award to him via mail. He said he didn’t realize how much of an honor the award actually was until he researched it online and watched a video of the awards ceremony from the previous year. “They told me I was the first guy from New Jersey to receive the award,” Logue recalled. “Everyone wanted to shake my hand. It was like a fantasy; I still can’t believe it.” Logue and his family made the trip to Capitol Hill in D.C. last month, where they enjoyed a three-day, all-expenses-paid excursion around

the nation’s capital, their first visit. They saw all the district’s major attractions, including the U.S. Capitol, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and the Lincoln Memorial. Congressman Jon Runyan (R-NJ) sat with the family during the awards ceremony before praising Logue’s actions at the microphone. “The trip was wonderful,” remarked Logue’s wife, Maria. “It made me see the postal union in a new light. You just see it as something taken out of the paycheck. But now that we’ve gone through this, we’re happy to give it to them now. They really do a lot,” she added. While in D.C., Logue said, he was interviewed by countless media, including USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer and TIME Magazine. He was even featured on ABC World News as “Person of the Week.” “I gave all the credit to The SandPaper,” Logue said. “If they didn’t put that article in the paper that day, I would never have been to D.C., and I never would have gotten all this attention.” Logue’s fame has since calmed down. Although it was fun for a while, he said he’s happy just working and being a father. Besides, he said, he’s still recognized at the local Wawa. — Kelley Anne Essinger kelleyanne@thesandpaper.net

There is proper and ample installation of dune fencing that together with the grass traps wind blown sand. “The beach itself and the near shore sandbars are all part of the system that interacts to protect itself and the back bay from storms. Dunes themselves are a reservoir of sand that replenishes the beach system during coastal storms.” And, she added, “The community development element of the plantings helps get people of all ages – locals and visitors alike – up close to the system to get their hands dirty and be stewards of our community.” — Juliet Kaszas-Hoch

Tuckerton Water Continued from Page 36 Edwards said there are also some homes and condos that have their water meters inside the house, and some residents won’t let the public workers in to read the meter. Water hoses paid a part in the fun at the Tuckerton Volunteer Fire Co.’s first Fire Prevention Open House, held on Oct. 9, when kids got to try to put out a fake house fire. “It was a good turnout,” said Councilman Tony Foglia as he thanked Fire Chief Lee Eggert and K-9 officers Cpl. Cherry and Sgt. Andersen from the Tuckerton Police Department. Evans thanked Foglia and Councilman John Schwartz for their efforts as fire police in assisting pedestrians cross the street, and Eggert also thanked the borough police. The event will be

an annual one, said Evans. 37 Evans also asked the council to consider creating a Tuckerton Cup speed garvey race at the end of South Green Street Park. The East Coast Racing organization has applied for two garvey races off the park for July 14 and Sept. 22. Eggert said the group promotes the racinggarvey history of the bay. “We could get a plaque and keep it on the building down there,” he suggested. Fogila and Edwards concurred with the mayor. “It would be a very good promotion for Tuckerton,” said Edwards. “The borough and the (Tuckerton Beach Association) volunteers keep that park exceptionally clean.” Councilman Schwartz said residents have donated three more benches for the park, one by a man who dedicated a plaque to his dog that had passed on. “He bought a bench where he used to sit with his dog,” said Schwartz. — Pat Johnson The SandPaper/Wednesday, October 17, 2012

the Environmental Commission. Walter Doherty from the Environmental Commission was also on hand and, with Kobryn, had been in on the ground floor of trying to preserve the marsh. Bartlett noted that the partnership between the Little EggHarbor and the County Open Space committees has led to the preservation of 1,500 acres in the township, including Freedom Fields County Park. He said the people of Ocean County had had great foresight when they voted to tax themselves 1.2 cents for open-space preservation. “It passed in every municipality. We run it right; with Dave McKeon at the helm, we never pay too much for a piece of property.” NOAA’s Migliori said like many people, he had spent time along the Jersey Shore during his childhood. “When we would hit mile post 50 on the Garden State Parkway and got the first glimpse of that open expanse of marshland, I would get excited,” he said. “The coast with its natural beauty also means seafood and the boardwalk, and is the economic drive of the state. It’s our legacy to balance economics with environmental protection. “This is the 40th anniversary of the Coastal Zone Management Act, legislation that recognizes the importance of the nation’s coasts,” he continued. “One hundred and sixty million people live on our coasts. They provide 66 million jobs and $8.3 trillion, or 58 percent, of our nation’s economic output. The CZMA is a voluntary program between NOAA and the states. In the last 40 years, the office has directed a billion dollars in federal funds to implement programs in the National Research Reserves, and this pocket marsh demonstrates just a piece of the CZM program.” Once the signs were unveiled, the photo ops finished and officials departed for their offices, migratory warblers flitted among the reeds by the marsh, and blue jays scolded squirrels in the trees. Traffic zoomed by, making the turn from Great Bay Boulevard to Oak Lane to Radio Road and on toward Mystic Island. Somewhere in the undergrowth, a small herd of deer was hidden in plain view. Auermuller said she often watches them from her window at the JCNERR office, when they venture out mornings and at dusk. — Pat Johnson patjohnson@thesandpaper.net

Brower, a freshman at Monmouth University, graduated in June from Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Sciences. At MATES, he received recognition in the school’s Project Terrapin program and also received the School Counts Gold Award from the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce. His goal is to receive a master’s degree in history with an emphasis on studying World War II. Brower hopes to be a museum curator, researcher and a writer of history. “Christopher has had many exciting experiences in scouting,” said troop leader Kurt Stofko. “He has camped with his troop at summer camps up and down the East Coast. He has participated in Scouting for Food and has assisted in a number of Eagle Scout projects.

Candidates

Continued from Page 35 Nuttall’s first foray into local politics was when he was elected to the Pinelands Regional Board of Education in 1995, and served there for five years. He was appointed to the Little Egg Harbor Planning Board in 2007 and served as chairman for two of four years. In that time, he oversaw many applications, the biggest being the WalMart approval. “It was a difficult one that the citizens tend to favor,” said Nuttall. He was appointed to the township committee in May 2010 to fill an unexpired term, and then was elected by popular vote in November 2010 to the rest of the term’s two years. Nuttall serves as the township’s trustee for Squad 85 (Great Bay Regional Volunteer EMS). “Squad 85 is a thriving and growing organization, one of the best volunteer organizations in the entire state of New Jersey,” he said. “We are growing in membership, whereas other volunteer squads have been shrinking.” Nuttall also serves as township liaison to the

Pit Bulls

Continued from Page 33 Sarah, in the one month she has known his mother, even keeps a watchful eye on her whereabouts, making sure she is safe at all times. “These dogs are wonderful,” said LeonettiCapp. “(Sarah) comes up on the bed, and she wants to be sure that I know she’s there. She’ll pick up my arm and put it on her body. The first time she did that, I almost cried.” Before adopting Sarah, Capp said he thought Daisy must have been trained as a service animal to become as compliant as she was. Now he is convinced pit bulls are subservient creatures, truly dedicated to their owners and families. “I never disliked pit bulls, or was against any specific breed. But you always see these young, punk kids, usually insecure males, walking down the beach, usually in Florida, with their pit bull and smoking their cigarettes, acting tough. That whole image and that whole stereotype, I really detested. Based on that alone, I thought I’d never own a pit bull,” Capp confessed. “But now I’ll never adopt anything other than a female pit bill. They’re so gentle and docile. They’re fearless,” he added. “People tend to be automatically afraid of them, and I think it’s because of their appearance. They look like they would be powerful, evil monsters. But it seems the bigger and stronger the dog is, the more they realize they don’t have to be bad-asses. When an animal is large and strong and capable, it doesn’t have to be like that,” said Capp.

Surf City Continued from Page 32 using the ratable base of LBI. At the time we paid probably all of (the costs of Southern Regional), but Stafford Township donated all the acreage it was built on. This issue keeps surfacing, and the reason why our taxes are so high is because of the amount of school taxes we have to exact.” At Wednesday’s meeting, Connors also stated that he feels LBI is underrepresented on Southern Regional’s Board of Education. Currently, three of the board’s 10 members represent LBI, including Don Myers of Long Beach Township, who has served on the board for 26 years and been supervisor of the Long Beach Township Beach Patrol for 46. He explained how board representation is determined by the U.S. Census, and during his tenure he has watched mainland student population heading to Southern grow while the student population heading there from the Island steadily decelerates. “We’ve had five, then four, then three (Long Beach Township representatives) – the last census knocked it down to two” plus one for Beach Haven, said Myers. Myers was made aware by someone at the meeting with Gagliardi that he will eventually be approached and brought into the discussion of the potential for pursuing reducing the percentage of payment by LBI to the school district but would not comment further without more information.

N.J. Air National Guard Warren Grove Gunnery Range, where he was a pilot for eight years. The biggest issue facing the Little Egg Harbor Township Committee is the number of property tax appeals filed in the last two years. Nuttall is part of the ad hoc committee looking to find a solution. “I’ve been a Realtor for 30 years, so I know all about property taxes and assessments; I was a certified assessor at one time,” he said. “My reassessment goals are, first of all, I’d like to have Ocean County designated for the pilot program for computerized tax assessments at the county level. That would save hundreds of thousands of dollars (county-wide). We recently passed a resolution to that effect. We’ll keep hammering on the Legislature until they do it. “There are a lot of vested interests that don’t want to improve things in the state. The best we can do is pressure them, cajole them, try to convince them that the reforms we want are for the good of all the people in the state. We’re not interested in just short-term fixes. We want to change the way things are done in the state. There’s a lot of wasteful spending under control of state rules and regulations that are arcane and inefficient.” Unfortunately, there is a stigma against pit bulls, and they are often the most prevalent breed found in animal shelters, a trend that began in the ’90s. Some of them are surrendered when families move, couples divorce, or their owners get sick or die, or simply do not have the time to take care of them anymore. A large number of them are abandoned by people who thought they could get rich by breeding them. “We almost always have pit bulls at the shelter,” said Reynolds. “It would be an unusual day if there were none there. It’s really been very sad what’s been done to that breed.” Although many people seem to be frightened by even the mention of the name “pit bull,” Reynolds said the dogs are usually “just big loves.” Of course, some of the pit bulls brought to the shelter have been bred for fighting – and cannot be put up for adoption. “There’s no such thing as a bad person, or a bad dog. It doesn’t matter what breed, what nationality, or what race. We’re all products of our environment,” said Capp. “These dogs are like a mirror: if you show them love and give them love, they show and give you love.” To learn more about National Pit Bull Awareness Month, visit http://www.nationalpitbullawarenessday.org/October-is-NationalPit-Bull-Awareness-Month.html. For more information about the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter, visit www. fosocas.org/. — Kelley Anne Essinger kelleyanne@thesandpaper.net Later at the meeting, Council President Francis Hodgson announced that by Oct. 15 the borough will have paid off and be clear of all its municipal bonded indebtedness. “So burn the mortgage,” he joked. “Not too many municipalities in the state can say that,” said Connors. Councilman William Hodgson commended Councilman Peter Hartney for finishing fourth amongst LBI runners at the annual 18 Mile Run the previous weekend, saying Hartney would have done better but “didn’t want to exploit the youth and inexperience of his competitors.” During William Hodgson’s police report, he detailed the story of Michael Adelman of Hillsborough, who returned a Rolex watch he found on the beach while metal detecting to its owner thanks to a Craigslist post recounting the loss of it. “People that visit Surf City are honest,” said Hodgson. Hartney announced he would be featured in a four-minute segment on the Comcast Network’s “Eye on Ocean County” program on Oct. 17 for his participation with the state Department of Environmental Protection’s Barnegat Bay Blitz events. “I’ll still have 11 of my 15 minutes of fame left,” said Hartney. During the correspondence section of the meeting, a request by Taylor Henderson to permit “Beach Boards” – essentially small billboard advertisements – to be placed at the end of each oceanside street in Surf City was denied. “We would be granting variances on our own ordinances,” Hartney tried to explain before concluding the potential profit would not outweigh

Other priorities in the township include road repaving based on a priority basis, and adding sidewalks in dangerous areas such as Radio Road and Mathistown Road, said Nuttall. “There are a lot of locations that are poorly lit and have no sidewalks now. We want to gradually and affordably put in sidewalks in those locations where pedestrian safety would be greatly enhanced.” Nuttall anticipates the 2013 municipal budget will be balanced and within the 2 percent cap. “We’ve been very good about that; some towns have not, but we have. I think the (mandated budget limit) cap is a very good idea, the best you can do under the circumstances. We hire when finances allow. “I take great pride in our public works department. I think we can point with pride to our public works, where we have a very capable supervisor, Patrick Donnelly. I think it’s a showplace for other towns in New Jersey. We are saving lots of money with the recycling program, which recently brought the township over $30,000 (from tonnage sent to the county the past six months). “The more the citizens throw in that recycling

bin, the better. I hardly have anything that doesn’t go in recycling. Just about everything is recyclable; even our organic material is recyclable by creating mulch, which we do now at pubic works. A county machine is sent down to us periodically to create valuable mulch out of leaves, twigs and brush. It’s free to residents. If you had to buy it, it would cost you money. And it doesn’t go in our landfill, so we save in tipping fees. In other words, we are saving on both ends.” Nuttall recently spent a day with the workers on the recycling truck, and also did a shift with Mayor John Kehm on the ambulance squad. “I believe it’s important to understand what the jobs entail if I am making important decisions about them.” Nuttall said that around election time, the opposition creates issues that don’t exist. “The town could always be improved. But there are no big issues creating any kind of emergency for the township. It’s consistent, gradual improvement of the quality of life in the township that’s being achieved now, and I expect it to be achieved in the foreseeable future.” Y patjohnson@thesandpaper.net

Arts in Parts

A series of large photographs by Michael Richards has a graphic quality to them that Hansen appreciates. “They are broken into three bands of color, and I’m unsure of what I’m looking at – is it a waterfall or not? You have a sense of the elevation, and of falling down, but there’s not enough information of what’s really there. You have the central information so you can infer what it’s about, and it’s beautiful, but not in a way that you’ve seen a million times before. The graphic piece dominates the landscape.” Artist friend Mike Branca is a plein air painter and his “Thoreau’s Pagoda” is a straightforward piece of landscape painting. “He loves nature. Even in Philadelphia he is out painting nature,” said Hansen. Sarah Burns’ “Roccoco Monotypes” are experiments in watercolors. “It’s about the love of the material, exploring what the material can do. In school she was doing figurative work. Now she’s moving outside of that,” said Ward. Both Hansen and Ward were students of PAFA painting instructor Scott Noel. Noel’s “The Road to Weston” is a two-panel panorama of a byway. “He’s a fantastic observational painter,” said Ward. “He taught us to nail down specifics of color and that the more you can observe, the more you can use to re-create the experience.” In the smaller gallery are fine, still life paintings by Noel, Hansen and Ward. With this first curated show, the young artists are creating an art presence on Long Beach Island and hope to curate more shows in the spring at the Gallery at Michael Ryan Architects. Currently, Ward is teaching drawing at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences on Sundays while Hansen runs the “Cocktails and Canvas” program at LBIF. The next session is Nov. 9. The gallery and “Envisions” exhibit is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays by appointment through Oct. 28. — Pat Johnson patjohnson@thesandpaper.net

the cost to legally get it done. Finally a letter sent by resident Jeanne Barbour asked the council to consider allowing the walking of dogs on Surf City beaches. Surf City remains the last borough on LBI not to do so, as one council member brought up. “We’re also the only town that has all its bills paid,” said Connors. The council seemed unsure on the issue and briefly discussed how many dogs are walked on the beach despite the town ordinance, and the health issue of cleaning up after them. John Gutbrod, 92, of Surf City chimed in on the canine concern. “When I was the code officer I was that grumpy old man that went up there and chased them. It would drive me crazy. It’s bad enough that they leave their calling card, but if they turn ’em loose, they chase the kids and runners. A lot of people this time of year are jogging down the beach and all of a sudden they got a dog going after them. Keep them off the beach. That’s for people. I don’t want to be a nasty old man. Of course, I’m 92; I can afford to say what I

Surflight

Continued from Page 28 she’s found while wandering around Philadelphia. How she chooses to pair them together, bind them or separate them, is usually influenced by things that have happened to her in her family history,” said Ward. “Shudder,” a canvas by Sarah Webber, is a complex drawing using graphite and gold pen. Israeli artist Dganit Zauberman’s “Boundary” is “literally announcing the materials it’s made of,” said Hansen. “She’s building the structure. The paint on the surface creates a mountain of texture that adds to the imagery. “She works directly from memory,” added Ward. “She would describe these as landscapes in her mind based on different regions she has lived in and her own psychological interpretation of them.” Sheri Hansen’s own work, “Nocturne,” is an urban sky-scape of Philadelphia painted from her home studio. “I’m not looking out on a mountain or a wall but a wall of windows is keeping it separate.” The viewer sees the skyscape through a barrier. Although the night scene might be dark and foreboding, Hansen has livened it up by painting colored strings of lights around the perimeter. Jason Ward’s oil paintings on panels, Ocean I, II and III, are empty seas with clouds and mist; the sea is painted a curious antique green, bringing to mind 18th century ship paintings, but without the ships. “Rather than using my materials to represent a subject that I’m interested in, I’m using a subject to really get to what I love about the material,” said Ward. The push and pull of using the material becomes the subject of the work, and the practice keeps going from there. “You tend to let go of preconceived ideas of what your work is going to be and you really open yourself up to the experience of your work as you create it, rather than try and come up with an idea and set your creative process into that.”

Continued from Page 27 So, in the end “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!” transcends stereotypes while remaining a light night of laughs. Not many shows can say that! By the way, you wouldn’t expect a four-person show to be loaded with dance, and this one isn’t. But “The Family That Drives Together” features an amazing dance, performed in rolling office chairs, that is worth the price of admission alone. And that admission ranges from $36 to $54, with tickets that can be purchased online at surflight.org, by phone at 609-492-9477 or at the box office. Y want, I guess. But still, that’s not right.” The council decided to table the issue, pending a letter to the Long Beach Island Health Department. — Michael Molinaro michaelmolinaro@thesandpaper.net

Continued from Page 36 Monsignor Ken Tuzeneu from St. Mary’s Catholic Parish delivered a blessing, the color guard presented the flags, and a small vocal ensemble of Select Choir members – Sam Foster, Sarah Gambacorta, Amanda Kessler and Jessica Doyle – sang the National Anthem. When event organizer Dennis Jarin gave the signal, the bikes all roared to life at once, filling the air with the sound of horsepower and the smell of gasoline, and then filed out of the lot one row at a time. Two by two in staggered formation, the bikes exited the school parking lot and proceeded down Route 9 to Route 72 and headed west out to the Route 70 circle, where the line wrapped around and folded back on itself, a mass of motorcycles moving as one, as wide as the highway. As rid-

ers did their best to stay close together, yet mindful of each other’s space, the rate of speed fluctuated between 30 and 50 miles per hour. All told, the ride was about two hours of sensory saturation, of fresh autumn air and togetherness, of natural beauty and butt-numbing vibration. County Route 563 led the ride through Chatsworth, past the Lee Brothers cranberry farms, the Hedger House and Wading Pines canoe and kayak outfitter, and eventually connected with Route 9 to take everyone back to St. Mary’s Parish Center on McKinley Avenue in Manahawkin for entertainment and refreshment, to share observations from the ride and sympathy for each other’s windchilled fingers and sore rear ends. The run was accompanied by a strong complement of police motorcycles and cruisers, representing

Instead, they pulled out their Back at the parish center, over a smartphones and shot video of the hot lunch prepared and served by Toy Run Foundation staff and volunteers, Santa and Mrs. Claus (Bearson and Joan Potts of Joannie Productions) chatted about the day’s underlying themes, of giving and of celebrating the spirit of Christmas. For Bearson, who has embodied Santa Claus since 1969 (“I proposed to my wife wearing the suit,” he said), the role comes with great responsibility to uphold the true character and image of the beloved figure. As Potts tells all the Santas who work for her, regarding their conduct while wearing the costume: “You have elves, reindeer and Mrs. Claus. That’s it.” They should also exhibit proper grammar and a high moral standard, she explained. Her enterprise is about far more than business, she said; it’s about keeping the magic and wonder in the Christmas season. “You’ve got to do it from your heart,” Bearson said – and, if possible, with an authentic white beard, which he has grown and worn since 1994.

Closer to Christmastime, the Toy Run Foundation, founded by the Jarin family of Manahawkin, will set up a distribution center inside St. Mary’s Parish Center to make the toys available to families in Southern Ocean County. It extends additional holiday cheer to kids through the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Operation Santa Claus at Fort Dix and Community Medical Center in Toms River, and does other work to help the community throughout the year by raising money for college scholarships. ™ victorialassonde@thesandpaper.net

HOMEWARD BOUND: (Clockwise from top left) Southern’s Mike Gisecki makes a grab between two Lacey Lions. Southern’s accomplished marching band and color guard rile up the home team. A crowd of fans pack the stands for Saturday’s big game, spurred on by Southern’s cheerleaders. The Homecoming Court lines up and awaits the crowning.

Lacey Spoils Southern’s Homecoming Game Chances for Repeat Divisional Title Now Slim By RICK MELLERUP utumn provided a gorgeous day for Southern Regional High School’s homecoming game against the Lacey Lions on Saturday afternoon. The temperature was warm and crisp at the same time as it was sunny and breezy, almost perfect sweatshirtover-shorts weather. And for a while, at least, the Southern football Rams looked almost perfect as well, building a 12-0 lead with 6:50 left in the second quarter. Clouds never made an appearance Saturday afternoon. However, the Lions managed to rain on Southern’s parade, pulling out a 21-19 vic-

A

tory to run their record to 6-0 while the Rams fell to 3-2. Lacey, new to the A-South this year, sits alone atop the division standings. Southern, last year’s A-South champs, slipped back into the middle of the divisional pack and, being behind not only Lacey but Brick Memorial and Toms River North as well, probably saw its chance to repeat as champs slip away. The 2012 Southern squad is a good football team. The Rams have outscored their opponents 99-45 so far this year. Southern convincingly beats teams it should beat, such as 0-5 Freehold (28-0), 1-5 Brick Township (19-7) and 2-3 Toms River South (19-0). The problem is that it still hasn’t found a way to win against other good teams, such as Lacey and Toms River North, which defeated the Rams, 17-14, back on Sept. 21. Good, but not great. Southern is good because it has some good weapons. Senior QB Dan Higgins has three primary receivers he can go to – wide receivers Mike Gesicki (7 catches for 79 yards against Lacey) and Nick Hem (4 for 63) and running back Abe Gonzalez (3 for 50). Gesicki causes defenders particular problems because of his 6-foot 6-inch frame (Lacey fans bemoaned that fact often and loud early in the game). Indeed, Gesicki pulled in four receptions for 130 yards against Brick, scoring 2 TDs. Gonzalez anchors a running attack (14 carries for 65 yards vs. the Lions) that also features Rob Yaiser (three for 10) and Higgins (six for 20). Gonzalez has already had three 100-yard games this season, including a 25 carry, 163 yards, 2 TD performance against Toms River South. The Southern lines, both offensive and defensive, are solid if not spectacular. Southern, however, has some weaknesses as well. Note that three of Southern’s games ended up with the Rams scoring 19 points. That’s a rather unusual game total, caused by missed PATs after touchdowns. That would come back to haunt Southern on Saturday. Southern’s defense, though it can be stingy, seems to lack a little team speed, a situation on which the fleet-footed Lions capitalized.

Continued from Page 13 times that it is accepted as the truth. Mr. Laurenzo’s first concern is the size of the federal deficit. Obviously it is way too high and must be addressed, but it was actually $1.3 trillion when President Obama took office and today it is $1.2 trillion. It is true that the president never managed to cut it in half, but he was left with the burden of paying for two unfunded wars, an unfunded tax cut by President Bush and an unfunded prescription drug benefit for seniors. If Mr. Laurenzo is a senior I imagine he is taking advantage of that program, as I am, too. If we wish to adequately address our deficit issue permanently we will need the cooperation of both parties. Isn’t cooperation a value we all try to in instill in our children? What happens when they grow up and get elected to Congress? Our president did sign a temporary stopgap spending bill that requires that for every additional dollar spent a corresponding dollar must be cut or additional revenue brought in. Where was the other party when this bill was signed? As to Mr. Laurenzo’s statement about those of us who pay taxes subsidizing the other 50 percent who don’t pay, look around. One of them might be your 85-year-old neighbor living entirely on Social Security benefits. Another might be the part-time college student and wage earner in your church who does not earn enough to pay. If you go to your favorite restaurant the dishwasher there who has a wife who cleans hotel rooms as the two raise several children may not earn enough as a couple to pay a federal tax. Still another might be a veteran of the war in Afghanistan who is simply unable to find a job. In reply to Mr. Laurenzo’s statement that some live off the government, be aware that the N.J. welfare program provides only temporary assistance. The maximum benefit is $140 a month. Assuming that such a recipient also receives food stamps, how many of us would choose to live like that? Permanent programs only exist for the mentally or physically disabled. Concerning the assertion that unmarried fathers have no responsibility to provide for children, in New Jersey if a father’s name appears on the birth certificate, he is expected to pay child support. Mr. Laurenzo’s comments on the current war on religion are totally erroneous. “In God We Trust” was added to our coins in 1864. In 1954 “one nation under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance. There are absolutely no plans to remove these religious symbols. Furthermore, the National Day of Prayer is scheduled for May 2, 2013. These erroneous stories have been floating around the Internet for several years. As to his comment about the administration taking up to 55 percent of your hardearned savings upon your death, currently estates up to $5 million in value are exempt from the federal estate tax. The next Congress will have to deal with that issue. Another concern he has is abortion. The Affordable Care law expressly prohibits federal tax dollars from being used for abortion. He also asserts that this administration is making efforts to heavily tax the rewards of successful small businesses. In fact, there have been 18 tax cuts for small businesses since our current president took office. Please come out and vote on election day, but make your choice based on reasons that can be substantiated by facts. Lois Smoot Harvey Cedars

Real Reformer To the Editor: This letter is in response to the letter from Karen Bosley titled “Democrat at Heart” (9/19). In that letter, Ms. Bosley stated that former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin was

not of the same “caliber” as were the numerous Democratic women that she cited who, in her opinion, possessed the qualities to be president. It’s obvious that Ms. Bosley is unaware of Gov. Palin’s record of achievement as a small business owner, a city council member, a mayor, a gas and oil regulator and as governor of the largest state in our country. In the interest of brevity, I will focus on Palin’s tenure as governor. All stated items are a matter of record. • Reformed ethics laws with bipartisan support. • Cut state spending by 9.5 percent between 2007 and 2010. • Forwarded funded education to give districts greater flexibility. Increased funding for special education by 175 percent. • Implemented a Senior Benefits Program to assist low-income older Alaskans. • Reduced federal earmark requests by more than 80 percent. • Forced Exxon’s hand to drill at Pointe Thomson after it held a lease for almost three decades, thus creating jobs and tax revenues. • Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, Alaska’s law to advance construction of a natural gas pipeline from the North Slope to market. This had been attempted for decades without success. Palin became governor; it got done. • In 2007, Palin signed Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share – a net tax on oil profits that was passed in a bipartisan and transparent manner. Result? A record number of oil industry jobs were created, and it helped Alaska bank $12 billion. • During Palin’s tenure, Alaska was second in job growth compared to all other states. • Palin’s tenure as governor resulted in a bond rating increase by Moody’s Investor’s Service. • As governor, she earned approval ratings of 89 percent and 93 percent (May 2007) and was credited by Democratic Party Chairman Jake Westbrook as a leader that worked across party lines. • Business license fees were cut in half. With great ease, I could continue this list with examples of what a real reformer can do. Not the same “caliber”? Perhaps the simple truth of Sarah Palin’s executive accomplishments sets the record straight. Jackie Siciliano Surf City

Supportive Artists To the Editor: The president and trustees of the Long Beach Island Historical Association would like to thank all who participated in the art show held at the museum. The paintings of local Beach Haven sites and historic homes were exhibited from mid-August through the Chowderfest. We are most grateful for the generosity of the artists involved. A portion of the proceeds on the paintings sold was donated to our association. Artists Carol Freas and Linda Hibbs organized the exhibit, and we were delighted to see such wonderful artwork displayed in our venerable old building. We appreciate all the talent, effort and energy of the artists and volunteers who helped us with this event. Kathleen Donnelly, corresponding secretary LBI Historical Assn.

Correction In a Sept. 19 article detailing the opening of the new Early Childhood Center in Little Egg Harbor, the architect for the project was incorrect. The architect is Garrison Architects of Mount Laurel.


Continued from Page 40 Fantastic Drive From Own Four When the Rams are clicking, they really click. Southern pulled off a wonderful drive on its second possession in the first quarter that showed the team’s potential. Starting from its own 4, the team mixed running and passing to a delightful degree. After Gonzalez was stuffed at the line and an incomplete pass, Higgins hit Gesicki on a play action pass that was good for 42 yards. Gonzalez then ran left for five yards. After an incomplete pass, Higgins again connected with Gesicki, advancing the ball to Lacey’s 40 for a first down. Gonzalez then showed nice cutback ability for an 8-yard gain. A quick flare pass to Hem resulted in another first down, at the Lacey 22. Yaiser ran the ball up the middle for 6 yards and Gonzalez did likewise, gaining 4 and earning a first down at the Lions’ 12. Another quick flare, this time to Gesicki, put the Rams on the 5. Gonzalez then went off right tackle for a touchdown. The PAT was missed, but Southern still had a 6-0 lead with 22 ticks left on the first quarter clock. Let’s dissect that 96-yard drive. It consisted of six running plays and six passing plays, more than enough of a mix to keep a defense guessing. On their next possession, which started at their own 32, the Rams once again mixed it up. Yaiser ran for a yard. Gonzalez followed with a 5-yard effort. Higgins hit Gesicki for a first down at the Ram 45. Higgins gained 5 on a keeper. He then hit Hem with a flare to the left side for a first down on the Lacey 39. Yaiser went up the middle for 3 yards. But then two incomplete passes left Southern with a quandary at the Lacey 36. Too far for a field goal attempt but too close for a punt, which wouldn’t drastically improve Southern’s field position. Then again, they needed to pick up 7 yards. Not surprisingly, Coach Chuck Donohue Sr. took a time-out. So, what would Southern do? How about a pass over the middle to Hem, resulting in a 36-yard touchdown. Once again, though, the PAT was missed. Again, let’s take a closer look at that drive. Four running plays, five passes. Nice. So at the 6:50 mark of the second quarter, Southern looked to be in great shape. The Lacey fans were getting restless. And when the Rams stopped the Lions on their ensuing drive and took over the ball at their own 43 after a fourth-down pass went through the hands of a Lacey receiver, they were getting downright agitated. There were three minutes left in the half and Southern launched another drive. It fell short, though, with the Rams surrendering the ball on downs at the Lacey 21. But hey, there were only 47 seconds left before the homecoming halftime festivities commenced and Lacey would have to drive 79 yards for a TD. Things were looking good. Then Christian Tutela ran around left end to the Lacey 35. Kyle Spatz followed with a run around the right end to the Ram 41. Lacey called for time with 27 seconds on the clock. Lacey’s junior QB then threw an incomplete pass. But with 19 seconds left, he was on the money when he hit wide receiver Bill Belford in the middle of the field. Belford avoided several tacklers (remember the team speed problem) and scored with eight seconds left. Lacey was successful on its PAT, so Southern went into the locker room with just a 12-7 lead. The Lions Roar Back Both teams went three and out to start the second half, but then Lacey put together a nice 12-play drive that resulted in the Lions taking a 14-12 lead with 3:37 left in the third. With 1:23 left in the third, Lacey started another long drive at its own 27. Did I say long? It went for 12 plays and ate up time – there was only 5:35 left in the game when it ended. True, it was unsuccessful, but it didn’t leave Southern with much time, especially since the Rams were starting on their own 10.

Still, Higgins used a nice fake to spring him loose for 14 yards on a keeper. Then he hit wideout Vinnie Colecchia for 14 yards, and the senior receiver was also able to get out of bounds to stop the clock. With a full five minutes on the clock, Southern was able to mix it up, sending Gonzalez through the middle for 4. Two incomplete passes, though, left the Rams with a 4th-and-6 at their own 42. Everybody in the stands figured that with the pressure on, Higgins would look for Gesicki. He did. The only problem was that Spatz had figured that as well and stepped in front of the pass for an interception. It looked at first as if Spatz had returned the interception all the way for a TD. But a Lacey player was called for an illegal block, and Lacey had to settle for a first down at the Ram 21 with 4:05 left. Spatz took over the game. With a 3rd and 8 from the Southern 19, he caught a pass at the 13, leading to a 4th and 2. He then caught a pass on the left flank and outran the defenders to score. The PAT made it 21-12 Lacey with 2:13 left, and it looked as if Southern’s homecoming had been spoiled. The Rams didn’t give up, though. Starting at their own 35, they quickly marched down the field.

Higgins hit Gonzalez for 26 yards. Then, after a couple of incomplete passes, Lacey was charged with defensive pass interference, putting the ball at the Lacey 24. Another completion put the ball at the Lacey 8 with 1:18 left, and on second down Gonzalez once again was the target, catching a ball in the end zone for a TD. This time the PAT was good and Southern trailed by just 2 points. With only 55 seconds left, the Rams had no choice but to try an onside kick. It was unsuccessful, and Lacey ran the time off the clock. Those missed PATs opened up a great question. Why didn’t Southern go for two points after its second touchdown? The “book” – actually, a chart composed by Dick Vermeil in the early 1970s when he was the offensive coordinator at UCLA – says a team should go for 2 when ahead by 12. It makes sense because it gives you the chance to make up for a failed PAT. True, the success rate for a 2-point conversion is low, around 50 percent. But the difference between 14 points and 13 or, as it turned out for Southern, 12, is huge. A successful 2-point conversion after Southern’s second TD could have resulted in the Rams being a great team. Saturday it looked as if they’ll have to settle for good.

Reducing Carp to Pellets; A Mola-Mola in Loveladies

A

very specialized fish-processing factory is about to fire up in Grafton, Illinois. It might fall into the hitherto unknown category, “If you can’t eat ’em, join ’em.” American Heartlands Fish Products is awaiting the final go ahead – in the form of federal funding – to open a large plant to begin full time slicing and dicing of highly invasive carp specie. As most folks know, so-called Asian carp have gone out of their reproductive minds in the mud-rich waters of the Mississippi River region. The carp numbers are increasing geometrically – as is the concern over what millions atop millions of these voracious, bottom-slurping fish might do to the native riverine ecosystems. Not only is resident wildlife at risk but so are humans. Gospel truth: There have been numerous bodily injuries to boaters struck by flying carp, spooked into the air by passing boats. Hundreds of carp have been seen spontaneously launching themselves high into the air, often reaching face-level of boaters. Locals have dubbed it “the Asian air force.” In retaliation, carp-fearing folks have initiated carp “hunts” and “roundups.” While barely scratching the surface of the carp problem, the oft beer-fueled events have led to some worrisome collateral damage. One hunt consisted of dozens of fully loaded vessels with fully loaded captains and crews literally shooting shotguns at flying carp. It’s unknown how many carp were hit but local hospitals were pulling pellets out of humans like there was no tomorrow. In the face of a temporary ban on impromptu carp hunts, epicurean-based approaches were tried in an effort to control the carp by hyping the bony fish as exotic menu fare. That didn’t always hit the spot. One diner was pretty much on target when he tried a bite and said, “Where’s my shotgun?” Now, up steps an industry that thrives off of fish that fail to tickle the human palette. Fish processors can perform miracles on just about anything that swims. Their trick is to royally grind up the likes of Asian carp, then dry the piscatorial muck and make pellets to feed farmraised things we like a whole lot more, including chickens, salmon, llamas, you name it. I’m thinking the plant might also be sneaking loads of pellets back into the rivers – you know, job security and all. Sung Yong Carp: “Every time I eat these pellets they remind me of something. I just can’t put my fin on it.” Speaking of “Soylent Green” (yes, I was), did you know that 1972 movie, from a 1966 book, was based in large part on Earth’s end times brought on by planetary overheating. Cool. I think I’ll Netflix it. LOVELADIES MOLA BOOLA: Onward to the weirdest report in many moons.

Some folks I know in bayside Loveladies, a.k.a. Loveladies Harbor, responded this week to their dog nervously barking at something in the water. The damn-observant pooch had eyed a huge protruding fin in the bay. It instantly recognized the need to alert family and friends to the circling fin. Please add the obligatory “Jaws” bass ostinato. Gotcha. No bull here, though. What the pooch had spotted was a good sight rarer than a shark top. It was, instead, the dorsal of a huge mola-mola, the beloved oceanic sunfish that can achieve the size of a small country if left to its own jellyfisheating devices. The mola is the largest boned fish in the world. What’s more, lady molas produce more eggs than any known vertebrates. In fact, no creature stays as egg-laden as a mola mom. Of course, you sure as hell never bring up the subject of stretch marks when swimming near one. A pissed off mola can make instant jellyfish outta just about anything she can chomp down on, if you get my drift. And they do drift. This being the likely means of transport this fish utilized to reach our bay. Viewed for over an hour, the Loveladies mola – unknown gender – explored the local waters. It was seemingly fit and able-bodied. Unfortunately, this drifter might need some serious helping hands to point the way back to sea. If anyone out there speaks mola, even broken mola, please step up to bat. Also, I’ll try to track its whereabouts. If you sight the mola, e-mail me posthaste – if not sooner. IT’S HERE – SORTA: Just like that, we find ourselves in the guts of the fall fishing season – in a good, gutsy way, that is. The air and sea are finally adjusting to the calendar, though the ocean water is running a goodly few degrees above normal. Maybe it’s running on global warming time. Looking at angling logs I’ve kept in the past, we’ve seen ocean temps around 50 for this same date. This past week, I recorded mid-Island ocean temps of 64 degrees. It’s the bay water that’s hit the skids, egged on by some semi-frosty nights. With the apparent eutrophication of Barnegat Bay – a scientific way of saying shallowing – it doesn’t take a ton of night chill to drop the water into the 50s, even lower in the shallows. Bay waters play a large role in angling potential in and around inlets, as dropping tides usher out water as much as 15 degrees cooler than the ocean it’s pouring into. That rapid change Continued on Page 46

It’s a Long Way to Riparari KEEP ON BIKIN’: For Jim Stevens of Beach Haven, the Holgate Rip is just a few pedal pumps away – as in a few thousand such pedal pumps. Undaunted by even a honking south wind in his face, the angler is hellbent on making the far south end to plug for bass and blues.

Fish Story Continued from Page 44 can knock the mick out of forage fish, leaving them slowed – and sitting ducks for gamefish, which take thermal swings more in stride. SHOWLESS SURF CLAM: As clams are showing potential – and Classic success – as striper bait, I’ve been re-asked about running out and grabbing a load of washed-up surf clams along the beach. Sorry, but such shoreline showings don’t happen the way they have in the past. Go figure.

Don’t mind if I do. I know for a fact the ocean clams are still out there. Unbeknownst to many, our little state is far-and-away the leading source of both surf clams and ocean hard clams (quahogs) in the country. Crafty harvesting practices have kept this industry up and pumping. That management success puts the kibosh on theories that over-harvesting is the reason for the no-show of washed-ashore bivalves. While it’s hard to prove why surf clam wash-ups are now so few-andfar between, I’m betting it all comes down to stormage – and the recent lack of same.

Crash Course in Cormorants A Full-Blown Flock of ‘Mud Ducks’ Stops Off in Holgate MULLET HUNGRY: A massive flock of nearly 1,000 double-crested cormorants – only a small portion photographed here – land, en masse, near Little Egg Inlet. The diving birds, sporting a population increasing in leaps and bounds, are chasing migrating mullet and baby bunker. They are regionally referred to as ‘mud ducks.’ It takes some kick-ass sand movement to loose large surf clams, which thrive a good distance out at sea. It then takes further kick-asseness to drive them onto sandbars and finally ashore. Don’t look now but we’re in a lowstorm run going on 20 years – knock on driftwood. Sure, we’ve had this brutal storm and that ferocious gale but to see surf clams exposing themselves along the beachfront, you have to hearken back to the beach-busting series of stormy winters from the late 1980s into the early 1990s. That was the last time

we had a tsunami worth of washed up clams. WHAT’S A-COMIN’?: While I’ve heard we’re surely in line for a wild and wicked winter, storm-wise, I have to rock the snow boat by disagreeing. I just don’t see any pretentious, upper level air patterns – Jet Stream or otherwise – suggesting we’ll see protracted wintry wildness here on LBI – especially after factoring in the very weak influences of a barelyshowing El Niño. I will allay the fears of skiers by saying I do see some potential whiteness for ski-resorts, mainly New York and New England.

16th Annual Sea Shell Striped Bass Derby Oct. 26-28

G

rab your rods and check your engines: This year marks the Sea Shell Resort and Beach Club’s 16th annual Striped Bass Derby, a boat-based fishing tournament set for the weekend of Oct. 26-28, rain or shine. Entry fee is $150 per boat for two anglers, plus $50 for each additional angler. All prizes go to the boat captain. The fee includes one commemorative shirt per angler, entry to two event-related cocktail parties at the Sea Shell in Beach Haven – the welcome party at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, followed by an 8 p.m. captain’s meeting, and from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday. It also includes entry to Sunday’s noon fish fry, with entertainment by The Impulsives, and the 2 p.m. awards ceremony. Fishing begins at 9 p.m. on Friday and continues until final weigh-in, from 10 a.m. to noon on

Sunday, at the Sea Shell Tiki Bar. All fish must be caught with rod and reel on the captain’s boat, and only one fish per boat is eligible for a cash prize. Captains agree to donate all weighed fish for the Sunday fish fry. Derby competitors must remain in inshore waters within three miles of the beach. The boundaries are as follows: north to Governer’s Mansion on Island Beach State Park, south to the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, and west to the Garden State Parkway. According to Sea Shell owner and derby coordinator Tom Hughes, “There will be cash prizes for the top 10 heaviest fish, special prizes for junior anglers and lady anglers, and special drawings for donated gifts from various local businesses.” To download a registration form, visit seashelllbi.com/striped_bass_ derby.php. Participants may also register on the first day of the event, from 3 to 6 p.m., but pre-registration

is strongly encouraged. Shirts and wristbands will be available from 1 p.m. on Friday. As Hughes explained, the Beach Haven Public Bike Rack Project is the funding beneficiary of this fall’s contest. In a letter to the editor in The SandPaper last month, Hughes stated, “As owners of the Sea Shell Resort and Beach Club, we, along with many other civic-minded Beach Haven business owners, recognize the trend in other towns of providing public bike parking in the more congested areas of town. Specifically, we want to donate environmentally friendly bike racks to the town that would be installed in areas around certain public beach entrances, and in the Bay Village and the public dock areas. “We hope to offer bike racks that will be able to park in excess of 100 bikes. These beautifully designed racks will help reduce car traffic during the

day and in the evening. The project will also encourage residents and visitors to use their bikes and promote a healthier environment for all.” The initial cost of the project will be funded by the Sea Shell Striped Bass Derby “and the dedicated business owners and fishermen in Beach Haven and the surrounding area.” As Hughes pointed out, last year’s derby drew more than 100 boats and nearly 400 anglers, and raised $15,000 for the Stafford Wrestling Club. “Our goal for this event is to provide yet another reason for people to frequent our island during the fall season, provide a venue for boat fishermen and, most importantly, provide funds for worthwhile local projects. The Sea Shell encourages fishermen and business sponsors alike to get involved and to make this year’s derby the best ever.” — Juliet Kaszas-Hoch

That said, don’t unbatten the hatches or cut down the hedges. Logically and mathematically, we are dead due for a 10-year, 20-year or even 30-year storm event. It could be a down-and-dirty doozy. However, there is nothing known to science that can foresee a single rock’em/ sock’em storm, short of those laws of averages, a.k.a. the we’re-overdue syndrome. CIRCLE THE HOOKS: I got an e-mail asking if there is such a thing as circle hook trebles, for plugs. I responded by first noting that a circle hook is the greatest thing since sliced bread – though I’m not really wild about sliced bread. I can assure there is no way to incorporate circle-hooked trebles into a successful plugging routine. Oh, the fish will love it. That alone should tell you something. I’m not badmouthing circle hooks in any way, shape or form. They’re the greatest things since oxygen for anglers with hyperactivity disorder. Those of us with the attention span of a ferret who just found an open energy drink, can now coolly throw out a bunker head bait then quickly walk the hell away from that insanely boring chunk rod – to go frantically barking after sea gulls. With circle hooks in play, a solidly-rooted sand spike and a perfectly set drag can allow me enough time to stop making sand angels up on the dunes and composedly run back to an active rod – to land a pre-exhausted, prizewinning fish. By the by, there are now jigheads with circle hooks. In reality, these are Continued on Page 49

S

eeing the elephant” was a common expression in the 1800s for a man meeting his fears and overcoming them. For the 9th New Jersey volunteers, which included almost all of the men from Ocean County, the elephant was found on an island called Roanoke off the North Carolina coast in February 1862. As part of the overall Union strategy to strangle the Confederacy, Gen. Ambrose Burnside led an amphibious expedition to close off the ports of North Carolina. New Jersey historian John Foster wrote shortly after the war of the events of Feb. 7, 1862. “At sunset the fleet anchored off a point of shoals, some twelve miles from Roanoke Island. On the following morning, the fleet was early under way, the signal, ‘Today the country expects every man to do his duty,’ flying at the mast head of the flag-ship. At nine o’clock, the advance gunboats opened on the picket-boats of the enemy. … At half-past ten o’clock, the gun-boats, having come fairly within range, made a general attack upon the enemy’s fleet and the batteries which lined the shore, the latter replying vigorously. This combat continued until three in the afternoon, when the boats were lowered, and the First Brigade (General Foster) immediately rowed to the shore, followed by the Second Brigade, under General Reno, in small boats. The forces encountering no opposition upon landing, marched without delay, toiling for some distance through a heavy swamp, until at length solid ground was reached. Here a brisk skirmish ensued, the enemy falling back upon his main body, entrenched in a well-constructed earthwork (Center Battery), surrounded by a dense swamp and undergrowth of laurel and scrubs, and the Union army of three brigades bivouacked for the night in a corn-field, a heavy storm beating piteously upon the unprotected men, who suffered greatly from the rain and cold.” Throughout the long night each man prepared for the next day. Lt. James Madison Drake, a 24-year-old former newspaper publisher from Trenton, remembered, “February 8. Daybreak came at length, and with it the crack of rifles a short distance away in the woods in our front. General Foster’s brigade promptly moved forward and shortly afterwards the firing became quite heavy. General Reno walked up and down near the roadway looking in the direction taken by the troops, impatient of the delay … because of the narrowness of the road and the almost impenetrable swamp on each side thereof. Streams of running water frequently crossed the road or causeway, in which we marched to the assistance of our brethren of the First brigade, who were slowly, yet surely, driving the enemy before them into the deepening recesses of the island. The men of the Ninth, notwithstanding the fact that they had suffered much from exposure during the night, and had started off without

having been able to warm themselves with coffee, were in cheerful spirits, and undauntedly moved forward.” As the 9th advanced, Drake and his men realized the seriousness of the moment. “It was only when the wounded were brought back that they for the first time realized the full meaning of their undertaking; and I must confess that the sight of maimed men, who had, but a few moments before, been in the full possession of bodily vigor and strength, as they were borne back past our slowly-moving column, caused the stoutest hearts to shudder. There was no more levity – all felt that a great responsibility rested upon them – and they nerved themselves for their fearful task.” The 9th had a new commander, a 40-yearold former railroad man from Phillipsburg, Col. Charles A. Heckman. According to Drake, “Colonel Heckman, who had been chafing under inertia, and was panting for an opportunity to show what his men could do, was ordered to move forward. In a moment over one thousand Jerseymen were briskly following their leader along the causeway, across the center of the island. The Ninth had proceeded but a short distance, however, before it left the improvised roadway, and entered the swamp to turn the enemy’s right.” Herman Everts, the regimental historian for the 9th, wrote in 1865, “The enemy believing the crossing of the swamp impossible for human beings, were much puzzled and in consternation. The swamp was deep; some of the men sunk to their shoulders; cartridge boxes were taken off, and carried in their mouths; for this undertaking the rebels for a long time called the 9th the ‘Jersey musk-rats.’” As they neared the fort, a Confederate gun wreaked havoc on the 9th. According to Everts, “Ascertaining that we were suffering mostly from their artillery, Col. Heckmann directed the attention of company commanders to the picking off of the gunners. … Lieut. Selden of Wise’s Legion, fired the last gun three times, and was shot in the act of firing the fourth. Col. Heckmann selected two men from Co. D, and ordered them to fire into the centre embrasure, on his giving a certain signal, agreed upon; the signal was given, and Selden fell.” Company D, which contained 12 men from Stafford Township, was in the swamp along with Drake. “This Confederate, however, acted with extreme caution, exposing himself as little as possible. Finally, he trained the field-piece with great care, and seizing a burning match applied it to the gun. Four reports simultaneously followed – one was the Confederate cannon – the other three the rifles of the sharpshooters, whose bullets pierced the body of the cannoneer, who fell across the trail of his piece. The Confederate who thus fell was Lieutenant Selden of the Continued on Page 48

Continued from Page 47 Wise legion, who did not have the satisfaction of learning the fearful execution of his last shot, which swept through the swamp, severing the two legs of Corporal John Lorence, and one leg of Private Jonathan Bural of Company K, and passing on killed Private Isaac V.D. Blackwell of Company F, and the gallant Captain Joseph J. Henry of Company H, though no mark or bruise could be distinguished on the person of the last named. Young Blackwell staggered and exclaiming, ‘Remember thy Creator,’ fell back and expired in the arms of his brother, who stood at his side.” Thirty-eight-year-old John Lorence of Gloucester County would become a national symbol. The New York Tribune reported, “The most remarkable case in hospital is a man named John Lorence of Gloucester County, N.J., a corporal of Company K, 9th New Jersey, who had both legs carried away by a canister shot in the battle of the 8th ult. One leg was amputated by Dr. Thompson, Surgeon of the First Brigade, and the other by Dr. Rivers of the 4th Rhode Island. The brave fellow had hardly recovered from the effects of the chloroform administered when the wild cheers of the army told the story of success. He raised himself upon his arm, and with an enthusiasm which chilled the bystanders, waved his cap in the air and gave three hearty cheers for the Union. Since the battle he has lain on his bed borne his sufferings with un-murmuring patience, expressing to all visitors his desire to

be well again, so that he may go on his stumps and have another chance at the enemy. Gen. Burnside and all his Brigadiers have been to see him and all speak in eulogium of his pluck. Men like him who reap a small harvest of glory, are your true heroes, rather than Generals and Colonels who are caressed if they win battles and publicly mourned it they fall.” Harper’s Weekly ran a poem that included: “Brave men grew braver as they marked How Corporal Lorence fought, And ever while the contest waged The post of danger sought. Columbia’s grand, inspiring voice Was sounding in his ear: ‘Strike nobly now,’ it seemed to say, ‘And cast away all fear!’” Harper’s published on June 7, 1862, “We are all debtors to John Lorence. … Dr. Thompson proposes to get him a pair of artificial legs, that he may follow his business of shoemaking, for this purpose about $200 are required, and a little more to give him a start. Let us help him wisely, says the Doctor that he may help himself. Whoever will do so may send his contribution to J.B. Bomar, Esq., mayor of Jersey City. “He longs to go, though on his stumps, “And serve his country more: “Brave Lorence! Well your country knows “Your fighting days are o’er.” John Lorence had “seen the elephant.” For him the war was over, but the rest of the 9th was still in the swamp.

Continued from Page 46 just heads with circle hooks, because you sure don’t want to add any serious jig action, which is the worst possible motion for circle hooks. HOLGATE HAPPENINGS: While the sandbagged rampway onto Holgate continues to hold its own against tidal assaults, the region I’ve dubbed the Dead Forest – about the 7,000to 8,000-foot mark – has been gnawed to the bone. The resultant look – with craggy, pithy, protruding tree carcasses gravely looming – is like that mythological land where small trees and shrubberies go to die, something out of either Tarzan or the Tunguska event. For buggyists, anything but a low-tide drive to the Rip is now blocked by branches. It’s such a pinch-off point that there is no getting by – coming or going – once the higher tide has overwashed that zone. If you get caught south of that pinch point, you’ll have no choice but to wait out the tide down at the Rip – though I could easily see my hyperactive self simply assuring my truck I’ll be back someday and swimming for Beach Haven. By the by, those branches and stubs can inflict serious dent damage to buggies if you hit them wrong. Warning: We have exceptionally high tides this week. That could mean real big buggying headaches. LET HOLGATE SPLITISTS: There is a growing boating segment that actually wants to see a new inlet form though the Holgate Wilderness Area – in unsubstantiated hopes that a dissection will allow them to bypass the badly shoaled channels on the bayside of Holgate – and also save them some time and fuel getting out to sea. Those boaters would like to see an instantaneous inlet form as close to the parking lot area as possible. Their thinking is beyond pie in the sky. Sure, an east-west dissection of Holgate will, indeed, create an inlet – of sorts. But, who says it’ll be navigable? What’s more, such a break-through will river in tons of oceanside sand, fully closing off the already skinny bayside channels. In the distant past, inlets have formed near the parking lot area. They even became deep enough to navigate – and be named, i.e. Beach Haven Inlet. However, this go’round, an immediate inlet will run into bulkheads and man-made formations, thwarting any prolonged sea-to-bay opening. As an inlet, it’ll be about as reliable as a long-range weather forecast. On the books, former Beach Haven Inlets have immediately migrated southward. Geology says they’ll always move rapidly south in just such a manner. Hardly a long-term inlet fix. The through-and-through breaking of the Holgate Wilderness Area would be all bad. Admittedly, one might think the Forsythe Refuge folks would see a break-through as a chance to truly separate the wilderness area from humanity. (I’m not saying they’re thinking that, I’m just imaginin’ out loud.) But, thinking that through – and tapping into historical precedent – a southwardly migrating inlet would

cause a swath of utter habitat destruction along the way. That just can’t be an ecologically good thing, by any wilderness standards. But it gets trickier – quickly and legally. What about the sands as they built up north of the moving inlet – as they’ve always done before? Who now owns that reformed real estate? The refuge was technically cut off and took off southward – and right off the map, once the last stretch at the Rip goes under. Does it get to hurry back and claim the newly formed Holgate as theirs? I sure would hope so – but courts aren’t always big on hope. It’s tangibly spooky for a Holgate fan, like myself, who wants it to remain forever wild. Ironically, the absolute surest way for the Holgate Wilderness Area to retain its ecological worth – and potentially gain back its now mostly-gone original size – is a massive sand replenishment of the beach. Not only would it save – in the knick of time – the remaining vegetation but it would also, and instantly, offer new land for vegetation and wildlife to expand upon. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is some way-future scenario. It’s not. In fact, within the next couple/few years, it’ll all begin playing out. Mark my words. BUGGYING ABOUT: I’ve had a couple emails asking about the driving conditions along the whole of LBI’s beachfront. Simply put: It hasn’t been this good in decades. It’s smooth and easy buggying from north to south, with only the Holgate Wilderness Area offering iffiness. Admittedly, the recent hard, south winds left behind some very steep and dangerous cutaways caused by wave action. You can drive the dry sands above the drop-offs or hit the wet sands below then toward the ocean. You just want to avoid, at all cost, the sheer five-foot cliffs. You better know what you’re doing and where you’re heading if you drive the beaches at night. One slip and you can be going over the falls, so to speak. RUNDOWN: As of this typing (Tuesday), nine bass and one bluefish have been entered into the LBI Surf Fishing Classic. Top striper is a 28.88, caught by Bob Vallone, LEHT. He caught his fish in Loveladies on a bunker chunk. Striper things will soon be heating up like crazy. Get signed up ASAP. Tell them I sent you and you’ll get a nice Classic cap. You can thank me later. I did want to make special mention of that somewhat startling, 16-pound slammer blue, now entered into the Classic by Randy Swartley, Manahawkin. It was taken in Surf City on a bunker chunk and weighed in at Surf City Bait and Tackle. Here’s the shop’s info: “Congrats to Randy Swartley from Manahawkin weighing in a nice 16lb, 2-oz bluefish. Many were here to see the fish still jumping when it hit the scale, and then off for a quick release! NICE FISH!” It is the lone blue weighed into the Classic, so far. It set the starter bar kinda high. But that’s just the type of chopper challenge the Classic seeks. Let’s get to work besting that beast of a blue.
