Scaling Back


When times get rough, the survivors look for ways to trim costs.


ith the economy still weakened, many people and families are struggling to make ends meet. It’s a new world out there. In a recent CNN commentary, Jack Cafferty Cafferty declared: “This is not your father’s country anymore. anymore. And we had better all start getting used to it.” Sorry Jack, but it has never been “your father’s country” for many. My father, for example,lived exam ple,lived thro through ugh The Grea Greatt Depr Depressio ession. n. And father’s country? What about our mothers’ country? It has not been their “country” for quite some time, either. Long  gone are the days of the one-breadwinner one-breadwinner family,, and moms being able to focus on the family kids, the most important job ever. When I was preparing to go on a hiatus from this job two summers ago, leaving  work and the second paycheck behind, a friend of mine (a teacher who had lost her position due to state budget cuts) looked at me like I had just lost my mind. My husband was similarly astonished. Maybe it helped that I had been in that situation before, and not so long before. With our family living on one income for six of the last 11 years, I know how to scale back. More importantly, I know that the lifestyle change is always worth it. The other thing that factors into my resilience,, I think, is the fact that I was resilience raised on a family farm. In other words, we were poor. Sorry, Mom and Dad, but it’s not something you can hide, even from a kid. Growing up, we had lots of things—love, good times together, all the fruits and vegetables we could ever eat (and more, really)—but money was not one of them. No piano or dance lessons for us, no summer camps, no weeks at the shore.  Yep,  Y ep, we’ve we’ve had a long run of prosperity in this country, country, and there’s a generation or two coming up who have never experienced anything but good economi economicc times. For them—and anyone willing to listen— I have some ideas that may help. I’ve done  just about all of thes e, and happily, they continue to be part of my lifestyle, even now that I’m back to contributing to the family’s income. Choose as many of these as you can, and you’ll be surprised at how much money you save. It’s all about adjusting priorities and simplifying.

delivering food to a family in need, he spotted a big-screen TV in their living room. Look around your your house and garage to see what might be worth selling, either on eBay or by putting an ad in the paper or by having  a yard sale. • Map out a family budget. It will show you where the money is being spent and give you ideas about where to trim. • Eat out as a treat rather than on a routine basis. Pack a lunch most days. • Clip coupons. Write a shopping list before going to the supermark supermarket et and check the circular for discounted items for which you also have coupons coupons.. Those extreme couponers have the right idea, but you don’t have to go overboard to save $50 to $75 a week. • Don’t let the water run longer than needed, in sink, shower, shower, dishwasher or clothes washer. Whenever possible, hang  clothes out instead of using the dryer. • Carpool whenever possible. Not just to and from work, but team up with other parents for transporting kids to activities out of town. • Think about the vehicle you’re driving  and consider trading in for a more fuelefficient one. • Have a yard sale. Getting a few dollars for something you would only be storing is very empowering. empowering. It’s the ultimate in recycling, a win-win, finding someone who can use what you no longer have a need for, and having some extra money in your pocket. • Buy local products, especially fruits and vegetables. Living where we do, there’s no excuse not to, and you’ll be surprised how far $20 goes at the local farm market. If  you have the time, store some up for winter winter,, by either canning or freezing. • Birth control—the more kids, the less you can afford to give each one of them. Think beyond diapers—to cell phones and college tuitions. • Nix the family vacation for a year, do day trips, explore closer to home. Try staycations, where you pretend your home is a hotel and visit your town hall, etc. • Whenever the market is low, it’s the perfect time to buy stocks. For people who have recently “lost” money in the market, this is a tough thing to do, but the benefits will be very rewardin rewarding g when the market starts to climb again.

I Faces in the News Local Nurses Complete Advanced Coursework New Jersey’s staggering 10.5 percent vacancy rate for nurse faculty does not bode well for the health and health care of Garden State residents. Not having enough faculty to teach future nursing students could result in fewer nurses to care for aging and at-risk populations. This, in turn, could lead to poor health outcomes and higher health care costs for New Jersey. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) New Jersey Nursing Initiative (NJNI), which is working hard to change that dire scenario, recently announced the graduation of 20 RWJF New Jersey Nursing Scholars with advanced degrees that prepare them to serve as nurse faculty. Two are from Cumberland County: Marlin Gross, BSN, RN, MSN, of Bridgeton and Stephanie Henson, BSN, RN, MSN, of Vineland earned their master of science in nursing (MSN) degrees at Richard Stockton College. Additionally, scholar Nancy Mills, BSN, RN, MSN, of Pittsgrove in neighboring Salem County earned her MSN degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. “I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to pursue graduate school as a New Jersey Nursing Scholar,” said Gross, who now teaches at Cumberland County College. “The scholarship had a positive impact on my educational and personal development. The experience has empowered me to pursue my doctorate and to continue contributing to the nursing profession.” “I definitely plan on pursuing teaching,” said Henson. “Before I became a New Jersey Nursing Scholar, I didn’t think I would have taught. But the scholarship gave me the opportunity to get the education and confidence to be able to teach.” “Completing my master’s degree felt like an enormous accomplishment,” said Mills. “Now that I’ve established my clinical practice as a nurse practitioner, I’m starting to pursue teaching opportunities, because my dream is to balance my time between teaching and clinical practice. In encounters with patients, physicians, midwives, and other nurse practitioners, I see an emerging level of respect for the profession that I find very encouraging as a future nurse educator.” NJNI, a project of RWJF and the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce Foundation, provides generous benefits and support to help RWJF New Jersey Nursing Scholars complete their advanced degree studies. Upon graduation, scholars may receive financial incentives if they become faculty members at schools of nursing in the state.

DYFS Blanket Program Now that we are into the fall season some of us start to prepare for our additional gift giving, FiberArts Café (FAC) is continuing efforts working on the DYFS Blanket Program. There has been a great start already, reports Carol V. Moore, owner of FiberArts. “Buzy has delivered many 12x12-inch squares to Emma in Millville who works hard putting the squares together for 4x6foot finish blankets,” Moore says. “There are two sisters who also live in Millville who make complete blankets and have delivered over 15 beautiful blankets to

date. The Downe Yarners & Sewers not only make complete blankets, they also sew large cloth pull-string bags for the blankets to be given away in. Warren A. Robinson has given much of the acrylic yarns needed to make the squares and blankets in his wife’s name; Jennie Robinson. And a wonderful woman: The Crocheting Lady, Gail Ugro from Mahtomedi MN (a friend from crochet conference) sends twice a year a box of 50 12x12-inch acrylic squares in great colors. It is wonderful to be a part of such a giving community.” If you would like to join in with this great work, feel free to stop in any time to drop off squares, pick up yarn to do squares or sew squares together. All help is appreciated and welcomed. FiberArts Café is located on E. Commerce Street in Bridgeton. Phone is 856-451-3143.

Aviation Model-Building Classes Still Available There is still time to register your child in the aviation modeling classes that take place on Saturdays through December at Millville Airport. The classes are sponsored by the Millville Army Air Field Museum and are held in the Wyble Library Building next to the Museum on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost of the 12-week program is $125. A maximum of 12 students are allowed and there are still several openings. Parents may sign up their children by calling the Museum at 856327-2347. The program, entitled Introduction to Aviation — Aviation through Model Aeronautics, is offered by the Millville Army Air Field Museum’s Aerospace Resource Center. Students ages 10 years and up learn the basic concepts of flight by building balsa gliders, then a rubber-band model series (an introduction to power flight), and, in the final stage, building and flying enginepowered models. At the completion of the course, each student learns how to fly control-line models, also called “U-control models.” At this point, the students are officially members of the Academy of  Model Aeronautics (AMA). This national organization provides guidance for all model aircraft activities. The AMA is part of the National Aeronautics Association (NAA), in which America is recognized worldwide for its contributions to aviation including technology and flight records. The program was developed and is taught by Howard Bueschel, long-time aerospace educator for the State of New Jersey as well as for Mercer County College and Edison State College in Trenton, NJ. He is assisted by Roy Wilson of Mays Landing, NJ, who also has extensive aeronautical experience and brings a wealth of information about airplane modeling. Edward Carlaw completes the trio of instructors for this

comprehensive course. In the fall of 2010, a flying-circle model flying field was created at the Rob Shannon recreation complex on Cedar Street, adjacent to Millville Airport. This new flying circle is a valuable asset to the entire Introduction to Aviation program and a home base for the Cumberland Control Liners model airplane club to fly their aircraft. “This is an exciting way for kids to learn about flight,” continues Bueschel. “When they complete the course they have a clear understanding of aviation, enough so that they can feel confident in pursuing their interest in an aviation career. In addition, they have had a great history lesson, learning about the Millville Army Air Field, which was America’s First Defense Airport during WWII, and the P47 Thunderbolt fighter plane that pilots trained in here at the base.” For more information, call the Millville Army Air Field Museum at 856-327-2347.

Book Bag Campaign a Success In August, Big Brothers Big Sisters of  Cumberland & Salem Counties launched their annual Book Bag Campaign in preparation for the 2012-2013 school year. Because of the generosity of the local community, this campaign was highly successful with over 700 book bags and supplies collected. A major focus of the campaign was to collect enough supplies to help schools provide students with the necessary educational tools throughout the school year. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties is especially grateful to the following donors: Dempsey & Weiss of  Elmer, Farmer’s Mutual Insurance, Magnolia Hill Studios, Sweet Pea’s Children’s Shoppe, United Way of Salem County, Cumberland Green Apartments,

St. John’s Episcopal Church, Community Health Care, Better Education for Kids, and numerous individual donors. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties hosted a summer picnic where many of the “littles” and their siblings received book bags and school supplies. The organization also partners with 22 different schools within Cumberland and Salem Counties to provide needed supplies. Over 300 local children were mentored in one-to-one, long-term, life changing  relationships through the Big Brothers Big  Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties program in 2011. But many children are still waiting to meet their Big Brother or

Woman’s Club of Vineland Welcomes DeBartolomeis The Woman's Club of Vineland, a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, held their September evening business meeting on Monday, September 10. The speaker was Adriana DeBartolomeis, who was the student sponsored by the Woman's Club of Vineland to attend Girls Career Institute at Douglas College this past summer. She spoke very positively on her experience there. She felt it gave her a feeling of what college would be like and built her self-confidence. Because of one of the dynamic speakers she heard, Adriana has decided that she would like to go into counseling for teenage girls. From left: Shirley Burke, program chair, Adriana DeBartolomeis and Alma Sessa, education chairperson.

I Faces in the News RYLA Students at Rotary Luncheon Students from Vineland High School, Sacred Heart High School and Millville High School attended a luncheon for the Vineland Rotary Club on Tuesday, September 18. The students presented a program about their experiences at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference (RYLA). The Vineland Rotary Club sponsored 19 area students to attend the conference held at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey this past June 24th through June 28th. RYLA is a training program for leaders and potential leaders where students come together with other talented young people from Rotary District 7640, Southern New Jersey Region. The program is designed for juniors entering their senior year of high school. This year, 145 students from all over southern New Jersey participated. The sponsoring Rotary clubs organized the event with programs emphasizing leadership skills, personal development, and citizenship. Students explored career paths or learn more about their chosen field through discussions with successful community leaders. Attending from Vineland High School were Sanad Ashraf, William Butler, Abigail Dooley, Patricia Matias, Lourdes Monje, Salena Muzzarelli, Rachel Bernhardt, Brianna Ciancaglini, Tyler Steinbronn, Antoniette Isekenegbe, Darren Tomasso, Emma Holmes; from Sacred Heart High School, Ayla Gentiletti, Mia Klekos, Monica Canglin, Colette Orlandini; from Buena High School, Casey Sturts; from Millville High School, William Galarza, and from Edina High School, Edina, Minnesota, J.D.

The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self. You'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.

Dr. Mary Gruccio, Superintendent of Schools, was guest speaker at the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Vineland on a recent Tuesday at the Ramada Inn. The group of about 60 local community and business leaders were briefed by Dr. Gruccio about her personal and education background, and first three months as superintendent. She spoke of her strong family ties to Vineland and experience of more than three decades in the school district as a teacher, principal, assistant superintendent, and now superintendent. "I am so proud to be the superintendent of Vineland Public Schools," she said. "Vineland is my home. And I am also a proud graduate of Vineland High School, as are both of my children. My daughter, Lauren, is a teacher in Vineland. Like all of you, we want what is best for our kids." To accomplish that, said Dr. Gruccio, "we all need to work together, so our students can continue to excel in academics, athletics, the arts, and go to some of the best colleges and universities in the country." "We need to help our children grow," she said. "And it's also very important that we teach them about the need to give back to the community." As a former teacher, Dr. Gruccio said she was strongly committed to providing the greatest possible support for the people on the front lines—the classroom teachers. The challenges, she said, were numerous—a focus on test scores that may not accurately assess student performance, continuing reductions in state aid despite more state regulations, and unfunded mandates. "Eventually, these cuts in aid will mean hard work and tough decisions to avoid cuts in programs and staff that will negatively affect our students," she said. She also talked about recent changes in the district—a new computer system (Genesis); new school lunch menus focusing on more fruits and vegetables and whole grains because of new federal regulations intended to battle childhood obesity; and numerous changes in facilities over the summer. Dr. Gruccio also talked about the district's strong connection to Cumberland County College, and how this relationship helps students transition from high school to college-level learning. "I am a graduate of Cumberland County College and I'm committed to strengthening our affiliation in a manner that provides quality educational opportunities for our students, and many others in our county." She also expressed gratitude to the Rotary for its scholarship program that provides financial assistance to VHS graduates. "Working together," she said, "we can help our children grow in a way that will reinforce the fabric of our entire community." In response to a question from the audience, Dr. Gruccio explained that although there are fewer off-site college visits, Vineland High School students are excused whenever they visit a college and VHS continues to entertain representatives from many colleges and universities. The school also hosts a "college night." Another question addressed the possibility of expanded vocational education, and the new superintendent said she was strongly committed to a full-time vocational experience that opened up a greater number and variety of career tracks.

PSAT testing on October 20  Vineland High School students are urged to sign up now for the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) that will be administrated at Vineland High School on Saturday, October 20 , said Henry Weintraub, district testing coordinator. Registration for the PSAT began in the high school guidance offices on September 20. The last day to register is October 17. “There will be no extensions,” said Weintraub. Cost is $15 cash or check. Checks should be made payable to Vineland Public Schools. “The number of test booklets is limited so prompt registration is recommended,” said Weintraub. The PSAT/NMSQT is a standardized test that provides the opportu-

nity to practice for the scholastic aptitude test and to enter the NMSQT scholarship programs. “Only grade 11 students can qualify for the scholarship programs, but grade 10 and grade 11 students are encouraged to take the PSAT,” he said. On the day of the test, students need to arrive by 7:45 a.m. Testing will conclude at 11:30 a.m. Questions regarding the registration and test program may be directed to a high school guidance counselor or Weintraub ([email protected] or 856-794-6700 ext. 2249.

I In Our Schools

Over summer vacation, Our Lady of Mercy Academy introduced the New England Prep online course to a small group of juniors who are anxious to improve their math and English PSAT scores. This online curriculum is designed to be “infused” into the 9th through 11th grade high school math and English curriculum. More than 20 hours of the New England Prep curriculum is devoted to specific problem types, ensuring that all of the students enrolled in the program are thoroughly prepared for all problem types likely to appear on the PSAT, SAT and ACT forms. Each student participated in an online video lesson lasting more than 20 hours, which was devoted to only the hardest problem types. The students claim that the course was more exciting, better than being taught in a regular classroom, and worked well if they had to review the recorded lesson after each session was completed. The following students were chosen by principal, Sister Grace Marie, DM, to focus on these essential curricula: Sedona Hill, Morgan Falasca, Sarah Pustizzi, Tiara Campbell, BethAnn Cottrell, Katie McLaughlin, Taylor Tighe, Felissa Tan, Clair Stimson, Karissa Lim, Casey Harmon and Ashly Kiszelenski. “Hopefully, the end result will improve the scores of these and all students participating in this new program and we will see up to a 300- to 500-point increase in their scores this spring,” said Sister Grace Marie.

Who’s Your Hero? Is it someone who gives of their time and energy to make our community a better place to live and work? Perhaps they’re a policeman, fireman, teacher, coach, volunteer, serviceman or woman, elected official, or an everyday hero who makes personal sacrifices so that others can live better lives.

County to implement the Olweus Bullying  Prevention Program. Delsea was one of  three school districts in Goucester County awarded the Olweus grant opportunity, whose purpose is to change the culture and norms of the district by stressing preventative measures to improve peer relations thereby enhancing the school climate. The program was created by Dan Olweus from Norway and has decades of  research and successful implementation. Both the middle school and high school have Olweus Bullying Prevention Program Committees (OBPPC) that will work to implement the program during the 20122013 school-year. The Olweus model requires bi-monthly class meetings in homerooms where students will be discussing issues that are pertinent to them and their relationship in the entire school community. To encourage students to feel comfortable during these discussion sessions, the district is planning a full day of  unity-building events on Friday, September 28 in both the middle and high schools. The intent of this unity day is to set the foundation for what will be a school year in which the entire school comes together to enhance what is already a very positive and warm environment. To kick off the September 28 unity day, school culture motivational speaker Steven Bollar, aka Stand-Tall Steve, will offer programs to both the high school and middle school students as well as elementary students from Franklin Township’s Reutter Elementary School. Stand-Tall Steve will speak to the high school students at 7:45 a.m. in the high school auditorium followed by a program for the middle school and elementary students at 9 a.m. Stand-Tall Steve is known for his quick wit, creative thought, humorous stories and engaging words. His stage presence is commanding while he shares important lessons about education, dedication and life. Currently the principal of the Hartford School in Mount Laurel, he was recognized by South Jersey Magazine as one of the Top 20 Men of the Year. He uses his life experience to instill students with self-esteem and team pride that can translate into academic excellence. Stand-Tall Steven will be focusing on

efforts that are designed to improve peer relations and make the school a safer and more positive place for all students to learn and develop. His message will promote improvements in the classroom’s social climate, and social relationships, while enhancing attitudes toward schoolwork and school. The overall program is designed to be integrated into Delsea’s daily routines and procedures with outcomes leading to long term change. Parents and community members are welcome to attend. Please contact Mr. Nicholson, 856-694-0100, ext. 241 in the middle school and Mrs. Lawyer, ext. 234 in the high school if interested in attending  the Stand-Tall Steve program or with any questions regarding the Olweus Bullying  Prevention Program.

Set in Independence, Kansas, “I Hope You’re Wrong About Scottsdale” tells the story of  a failed actress who takes up a job as a phone psychic, while simultaneously struggling to maintain a relationship with her alcoholic boyfriend. Scarpa discussed his inspiration to write this type of story, despite the fact that he’s never been to Kansas nor worked as a phone psychic. “I can’t really pinpoint the genesis of  it,” he said. “I think most writers will admit that a lot of times that type of thing  is inarticulate. But I was in a writer’s workshop during my last semester at Emerson, and in those classes you’re usually expected to write two or three stories each. And this was the first one I wrote for that requirement.” The story had been one that was lingering in Scarpa’s mind for a while before he started the workshop, and he noted that the imposed deadline was the impetus that got him to sit down and finally write it. “For a while, I only had the first sentence,” Scarpa said, noting that every story he writes begins with a singular first sentence that he muses on for a bit before attempting to hash out a full narrative. “And I knew that particular sentence was one I could definitely turn into a story. I had a lot of ideas about where I wanted to go with it. But having a due date with the workshop really put my feet to the fire and forced me to do the research and hammer it out.” Most of Scarpa’s research involved getting some insight into the world of call-in psychics, a world he was otherwise unfamiliar with, but always interested in. To accomplish this, he spent some time calling into these hotlines. “I spent an afternoon calling these psychic hotlines,” Scarpa said, “and it was really interesting. There was a lot of the same jargon. That industry has always fascinated me—the idea that people spend money on these things regularly and put merit into what they’re told. I found a lot of overlap in the readings. They basically spoke in very general terms about things that, in essence, describe the human condition. Becoming familiar with the terminology and the method really pushed the story along. A lot of the dialogue I had during these calls shows up in the story.” Once Scarpa had finished his story, he didn’t realize just what he had at first. While he felt it was good, he didn’t know it was quite this good. That is, until he received praise from someone he had already admired. “The workshop instructor was Jessica

author of two books of short stories, and I’m a huge fan of both—that’s actually the reason I took the class. She pulled me aside after I submitted my story, and had great things to say about it, which was obviously very humbling coming from someone you admire. “Usually in these workshops,” Scarpa added, “you have to submit three or four drafts before the story is finished. That’s always been the case for me. But [Jessica] gave my first draft back to me with just one edit on it.” Treadway urged Scarpa to send his story into the Norman Mailer Center, and the confidence that her praise instilled in him was all he needed to do it.

Most of Scarpa’s research involved getting some insight into the world of  call-in psychics, a world he was otherwise unfamiliar with, but always interested in. To accomplish this, he spent some time calling  into these hotlines. Now, nearly seven months after he submitted his story for consideration at the recommendation of Treadway, Scarpa will reap the fruits of his labor. There is a star-studded group of  celebrities and literary heavyweights expected to join Scarpa at the ceremony: Alec Baldwin will serve as the master of  ceremonies; Joyce Carol Oates will be honored with a lifetime achievement award; Muhammad Ali will be speaking; and Garrison Keillor and Robert Caro will also be honored. Having achieved so much in such a short span of time, one would assume Scarpa plans to pursue a career as a fulltime writer. He says that’s not the case. “I don’t see that happening,” he said, laughing. “It’s something I would love to do, but I just don’t know how feasible it is.” So what does the future hold then? “I’m going to be applying to grad schools in the winter,” Scarpa said. “I’d like to get my MFA in creative writing. I was a little weary about applying to some of the top programs at first. I thought maybe I was still a little too green. But getting this award kind of gave me the

Satterfield and Operation Christmas Child Member M mber FDIC

For 10 years, Livia lived in a Romanian orphanage. In contrast to the lack of love and care from the orphanage attendants and fellow orphans, she vividly remembers her life changing as a child through a

simple shoe box. Livia remembers feeling shocked that people across the ocean would care enough to send her gifts. After going  through the contents of her box, Livia asked a translator how to say “I love you” in English so she could share the phrase with a volunteer, Connie Satterfield, who had traveled from Georgia to Romania for a mission trip. Five years after receiving her shoe box gift, Livia was adopted by Connie Satterfield and her husband. Now Livia’s story has come full-circle as she packs shoe box gifts for other hurting children across the world. Livia speaks at events and churches promoting the project that changed her life as a young girl.  Vineland area kids, families and volunteers host Livia Satterfield as she shares powerful impact stories with the Southern New Jersey community. This year the Southern New Jersey area aims to collect thousands of shoe box gifts. Attendees will learn how they can impact hurting children across the globe with simple shoe box gifts this holiday season.  Vineland will be the first stop for thousands of shoe boxes that local families, churches and groups will fill with toys, school supplies and necessity items. The shoe box gifts are hand-delivered to needy children around the world using whatever means necessary—sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, helicopters, boats, elephants and dog sleds. It all takes place on Sunday, September 30, at 6 p.m. at South Vineland United Methodist Church, 2724 S Main Road,  Vineland, NJ 08360.

 A Big Day  Indeed Fall Planting Day and Wedding Weekend coincide this Saturday to help you plan for your big day.


veryone knows that flowers and weddings go together, but we at Main Street Vineland like to take this to another level. Why not set the stage for our Wedding Weekend event by beautifying Landis Avenue with flowers? Like last year, people will have a chance, on the same day, to plant flowers downtown for Fall Planting Day and do their wedding shopping  during our Wedding Weekend retail event. So mark your calendar for Saturday, October 6. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., we could use your help at the mini-parks at the Boulevard and Landis Avenue and other downtown focal points to add some fall color. We’ll meet at the miniparks at 9 a.m., rain or shine. Though we’ll have some tools and equipment on hand, you should bring hand tools and comfortable gardener’s gloves, if you want to help and have them. Ivy Acres of Vineland will be donating  the flowers again this year, as they have done for the past several years. To prepare the areas for planting, we’ll be meeting at the mini-parks this coming  Saturday at 9 a.m., rain or shine, for Fall Clean-Up Day. Our Clean-Up and Planting Days have become true community events—bringing  together volunteers from Main Street  Vineland with those from other organizations as well as students from local schools. And everyone is welcome to come back to the Main Street Vineland office for free pizza. Meanwhile, nearly 20 downtown businesses, covering the 500 to 800 blocks of Landis Avenue, will be participating in the ultimate wedding shopping experience with a chance       2 to win some great grand prizes.      1       0       2 Wedding Weekend will take place from 10  ,       6 a.m. to 4 p.m. that same day (October 6).

Robinson’s Farm German POWs spent their days working at P.J. Ritter Company’s food production plants and their nights at the Fairton Farm compound.


he arrival of 75 Germanprisoners at Fairton’s Robinson’s Farm at the peak of World War II marked the start of a brief period in which Cumberland County would be one of  approximately 700 U.S. locations housing  World War II POWs. Supervised by armed guards, the Germans would spend their days working at P.J. Ritter Company’s food production plants and their nights at the tent-city compound in Fairfield Township surrounded by floodlights ready to spotan escape, guard towers with mounted machine guns and fences topped with barbed wire. Like their imprisoned comrades scattered throughout the country, their presence here remained hushed. The group of soldiers at Robinson’s Farm was originally quartered at Fort Dix following their capture by British and American forces in North Africa and their transport to the United States. According to former Ritter Personnel Director Earl L. McCormick’s insightful account of the POWs housed in Cumberland County, the “captives [were] from Hitler’s crack divisions…” The influx of German prisoners into the country would continue until spring 1945 and along with it a multitude of issues like resistance and defiance that began to infest various camps around the United States. Escapes were also a concern,especially since the camps existed on American soil and could threaten the safety of U.S. civilians. A total of 2,222 escapes did occur, including  one from Fort Dix, but the numbers were negligible when you consider there were 371,000 German captives held here. But a more insidious threat within the camps occurred when working prisoners were threatened by fellow soldiers. According to J. Malcom Garcia’s Smithsonian.com article “German POWs on the American Homefront,” pressure was placed on captives by other prisoners to “not work so hard” thereby sabotaging  the production of their workplace. As the article points out, there were those that upheld the belief that “a good German would not help the Americans.” The New York Times elaborated on the results of such thinking when it reported in 1945 that outbreaks of violence in camps throughout the country between September 1943 and April 1944 had resulted

The deaths were the product of “Nazi vengeance courts” and “courts of honor” implemented by zealous prisoners against any German soldier who was not deemed a “pure” Nazi by working efficiently for an American business. The situation in Cumberland County was one of cooperation, but it was not initially immune to the Nazi intolerance that had fueled the violence in other camps. As it turns out, it was the prisoners’ candor that prevented a similar problem from festering in Fairton. Organized into groups of 10 or more, the POWs were supervised by a civilian employee but, according to McCormick, seemed to be directed more by their own officers who had appointed themselves foremen and scurried about advising the soldiers. Various sources report that officers were not required to work by the rules of the Geneva Convention, but could do so if they desired. McCormick points out that his initial meeting with the POWs did not include officers. “I learned later that this was probably planned that way,” he writes. When an attempt was made to “break the ice” with the German officers and disarm the “caste system existing between the officers and soldiers,” McCormick was alarmed to discover that these individuals were unlike their charges. Describing  their responses to his inquiries as “arrogant,” “haughty” and “contemptuous,” he recounts the difficulty of maintaining an air of diplomacy while listening to claims that “none could withstand the full German armed might” and that the Germans’ “secret weapon” would soon end all Allied resistance. It wasn’t long beforethe POWs conveyed a message to McCormick demanding that the company removethe officers if the prisoners were to work at the plant. Looking  into the matter further, the personnel director learned that “the officers were overbearing and warning the men against cooperation with the Americans. They threatened that a record would be kept on the men to be reported back to authorities after the Germans had won the war.” Within days, the officers were on their way back to Fort Dix and a calmer work environment greeted the prisoners at the plant where they continued their labor under the supervision

Little Folks, Big Impact Two youngsters make a difference to feed the hungry, prevent bullying—with some help from caring parents.

wo youngsters in the Vineland area have used their good fortune to help others less fortunate. One used the opportunity of his seventh birthday party, where he could have received many gifts from classmates and friends, but decided to run a food drive instead. Another child is using  her runs and titles in pageants to shine a light on anti-bullying messages and other causes. The common denominator: Parents who have taught their kids to be compassionate. “Howard Tate is my son. For short, we call him Tate,” explains his mom, Terah. “Tate’s dad [Howard, as well] and I have always tried to help the homeless and hungry and wanted to introduce Tate at an early age to helping those that are less fortunate than him.” This food drive idea, she says, came about from a conversation that she and Tate’s dad had with him almost a year ago. They were talking about the hungry kids in Somalia and explained to him that there are a lot of hungry children in the world, even right here in the United States and New Jersey. “Tate is very sensitive to the needs of  others and he was very concerned with helping those that are hungry,” she says. “He liked that he could send food to the food bank and it would help someone in need. We told him that he could put together his own event to help people. “When we started planning for his birthday party, the idea came up that we could have a really big party at our shop, Howie’s Dugout Ice Cream Parlor & Cafe,” she continues. “So we invited half of his school (he goes to Catholic School, so invitations went out to about 75 kids and teachers) and instead of presents for himself he asked everyone to bring food for the food bank instead.” Tate’s parents went one step f urther and told him he could run his food drive for a week, and to get people to donate, he could offer a free ice cream or water ice to anyone who brought food. So, Tate is running his food drive from Saturday, September 29, until Saturday October 6. Howie’s Dugout Ice Cream Parlor & Cafe is located at 3569 E. Landis Avenue (across from ShopRite at Landis and

Lincoln avenues). “He wants to be able to bring a truckload of food to feed as many kids as he can!” the proud mom says. *** Another proud mom, Starlyn Gonzalez, has this to say about her wee one: “My daughter Charlie does beauty pageants and she has been using her titles and these opportunities to do good for the community. It is a different side to pageants than you see on Toddlers and Tiaras.” Charlie Audrey has collected donations over $100 worth of school supplies for a foundation called K.I.D.S (Kids in Distressed Situations) as well as an $80 cash donation that they “turn into $800 worth of stuff.” She has been set up to donate the items to the Boys and Girls Club of Vineland, according to Gonzalez. “At 18 months old, she is the youngest benefactor that K.I.D.S has ever had,” says Gonzalez, who obviously has a lot to do with making these donations occur. Just two weekends ago, Charlie was in White Plains, New York, representing   Vineland in an event for anti-bullying. She also performed in a sponsor fashion show for the same cause in front of 10,000 people at the Westchester Mall with guest stars Maddie and Chloe from the hit TV  reality show Dance Moms. “We have also used our Facebook page ‘Charlies Choice’ to do several other fundraisers in the past year for local families, Gonzalez notes.

The varieties grown over the nearly 30 years in business include Frasier Fir, Douglas Fir, White Pine, Scotch Pine, Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce and White Spruce. The supply of trees has been limited for the last several years but they still have trees including White Pines 10 to 20 foot or larger. During the off season, however, the family continues to take care of the mowing, fertilizing, and replanting when conditions are right. Over the years, there have been times when they have gotten help from son, Jeremy, Pat's brother, Bob, nephew Ryan, and some other family members. The Smith's said that the best part about having the farm is meeting nice people and seeing the smile on their faces once they have found their perfect tree.

o you ever stop and think about the future? Not idle, mindless daydreaming, mind you, but serious, cognitive contemplation? Having recently celebrated several notable personal milestones not the least of which was my—gulp!—50th birthday, this sort of pondering has taken on a greater degree of urgency and intensity. The Vineland region often enters into those musings, and I wanted to share with you a few ideas about our mutual hometown’s potential. Thusly, you may call this column “Vineland, 2050.” Don’t laugh, either, I recall an equidistant 1975 nearly as if yesterday. By the time we reach the middle of this century, I see our sleepy little town well into the process of blooming into a burgeoning metropolis. The connecting jewel—or at least, a semi-precious stone—linking Atlantic City, Philadelphia, New York and points to the south. Having always been first and foremost an agricultural hub, food and related enterprises should continue to play a pivotal role in any anticipated development. I begin by projecting the arrival of  interactive, farm-to-table eateries, not unlike the dynamic agriturismos of central Italian regions Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria. These would be bastions of country culture, where visitors could encounter the entire complexity of our multi-season growing cycles and receive an authentic, hands-on feel for farm life. Urban chefs in desperate need of inspiration, would flock here, intent on improving both the quality of their lives and the elevation of their cuisine. Taking advantage of our natural locale midway between the Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay, I also prognosticate the establishment of major seafood processing  businesses regionally. This would in a way repeat history, as early in the 1900s Delaware Bay fronting  regions of Salem and Cumberland counties were home to a large-scale sturgeon fishery.

The future of farming? Might Vineland become an agri-tourism mecca in a few decades? Could happen, says our columnist.

Sadly, those distinctive, ancient creatures—specifically the short-nose variety— were over utilized nearly to the level of  extinction. As a result, you aren’t likely to find them hereabouts any more. Seafood ventures could also take the form of aquaculture, apropos since one of  the country’s first developmental centers for the incipient industry was at our own Cumberland County College. Nearly a full decade ago I had the pleasure of interviewing a brilliant, whimsical scientist named Dr. Tim Jacobsen there. At that time, he was responsible for initiating a beta site for farm-raised fish at the little-college-that-could off Sherman Avenue. While working under auspices of a New Jersey state grant, he allowed yours truly entry into a sort of personal inner sanctum; where dual massive tanks of  breeding stock tilapia were being housed to spawn and grow. I’ve since lost touch with the talented Doctor J, but it only makes sense that the bounty of our nearby waters should become a prime driving force for local economies. Another original regional core business, poultry, should once again return to prominence, albeit similarly in a modified format. As an aside, for those of you who might be new to the area and wondering, our high school’s mascot—The Fighting Clan, as in poultry clan, not the hooded kind— derives from this practice, popularized by

eastern European immigrants fleeing The Holocaust. We envision a genuine opportunity for a different type of animal husbandry than traditional mass-production poultry facilities, where these birds are cruelly crowded into pens by the tens of thousands. While humane, artisanally raised beef  and pigs have become all the rage with gourmets and chefs, the same concept hasn’t really been applied to chickens/eggs. A couple of years back, when we profiled the beekeeping Stewart family of  Dorothy, they introduced this writer to a delightful array of eggs—light brown, dark brown and even green—capable of being 


laid by various species of chickens. Yolks were firm, distinctly deep orange with flavor profiles not ever before encountered. Literally like eating eggs for the very first time, a true revelation. And that was only from a tiny pen in their woodsy backyard. We can only imagine the spectacular results if applied in a more commercial setting. Simply put, happy, free ranging  animals produce better food, due to a lack of stress hormones tainting their products. Should any of this sound far-fetched,  just ask yourself if a decade or two ago you ever thought people would be spending millions of dollars to transmit what amounts to tiny Post-It notes over phones? And I’ll see you come 2050. I

Monthly Countdown to St. Paddy's Day" Celebration” Bennigan’s Franchising Company can’t wait for St. Paddy’s Day 2013, so it is gearing up for the Big Day in a big way.  Vineland Bennigan’s, located at 2196 West Landis Avenue, is kicked it off with a “1/2 Way to St. Paddy's Day” party on September 17, and will continue the countdown on the 17th of each month (October–February) with f eatured specials including $2 Guinness Drafts, $4 Irish Car Bombs, $8 big Irish Burgers, Sheppard’s Pie, Irish Potatoes and Corned Beef and Cabbage. “At Bennigan’s, every day is St. Paddy’s Day and we invite the local community to celebrate with us,” said Ed Roth, Bennigan’s Vineland franchisee. “Our Irish hospitality isn’t just a once a year thing, so ‘getting our green’ on with a celebration of our legendary food and drinks every month is a win-win for our guests and our restaurant teams.” The festivities will include featured green drinks such as the new Irish Flag  shot, Irish Lemonade, Celtic Cooler and Jack Daniel’s Apple Sour, as well as food specials and exclusive discounts. “Bennigan's owns March 17th,” said Roth. “Throughout September our  Vineland Bennigan’s restaurant will be giving out ‘countdown coupons’ worth 25 percent off your entire food purchase on the 17th of each month. We’re going to keep the excitement building through February, then gear up for the Big Day with the biggest party anyone has ever seen.” Bennigan’s has returned to its roots established 36 years ago, “bleeding green” with a determination to provide a legendary experience to every guest, every meal, every day. While closing in on nearly 100 restaurants, the company is progressively building upon the resurgence of the brand with improvements introduced

after Paul Mangiamele took over as chief  executive in May 2011 to bring the iconic American brand back to its former glory. The overhaul includes menu optimization, increased operational standards, server training and local store marketing pushes, as well as a new prototype that debuted a smaller footprint, updated menus and bar offerings, uniforms, logos and signage.

Be sure your house is just that as we head into the uncertainty of wintertime weather and temperatures.


any first-time homeowners envision spending their first winter in the warm comfort of  their dream homes, curled up in the couch, sipping a warm drink and pondering their smart financial decision. However, with nine out of 10 new homeowners interested in buying distressed properties, these bargains often come with tall grasses, overgrown shrubs, unmanaged pools and clogged gutters. Property that originally passed rigorous inspections can soon deteriorate and lose value if owners fail to take easy— but crucial—protection steps. These conditions may have turned the property into a haven for pests that can threaten the health and safety of neighbors, children and pets. And fall is the best time to implement preventative practices for winter. That’s why RISE (Responsible Industry for

a Sound Environment)® is helping homeowners keep their homes, lawns and communities safe during National Inspect and Protect Week (NIAP). NIAP will be October 1-5 and each day of the week will coincide with steps that match RISE’s mantra: INSPECT (INvestigate, Study, Prepare, Eliminate, Clean and Treat). RISE offers these simple tips to discourage pests from ever calling your home theirs: Indoors: • Start off right. Eliminate pests ways in by sealing spaces around pipes and electrical wires entering the house. • Eliminate food sources, water and shelter that may attract insects. • Search for cockroach egg casings under sinks and for insects and their larvae in flour, pasta and other dry food that is often kept onhand for long periods of time.

• Proactive and preventive treatments are key to keeping pests under control from the very start of your home ownership. • Remove stacks of cardboard from your home as they provide attractive shelter and food for pests. Outdoors: • Remove all standing water in areas such as pots, buckets, toys, pet bowls, birth baths. • Clean out ornamental and flower beds to ensure that mulch is in place. This helps prevent hidden problems from becoming more significant. • Pick up fallen leaves and branches and keep grass and dirt three-inches below the house foundation. • Prune back tree branches that are touching the house or roof. Branches leading to your home structure provide access points for insects and rodents. • For pier and beam foundations, keep the area under the house free of clutter and sealed so no wildlife make it home. • Check roof for buckling/sagging, damaged shingles or signs of cracking or leaking in the flashing at the chimney and joints. For more information, check out a home inspection checklist or visit a virtual online inspection tool to learn how to keep a happy, healthy home even throughout winter. I
