LENA USYK I Editor’s Letter A Moving Tribute at the Veterans Memorial Home Every so often, one experiences something that puts all else in perspective. For many in attendance at the Memorial Day tribute held on Thursday, May 21, at the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home on the Boulevard in Vineland, the ceremony was one of those “a-ha” moments. On the front lawn of the Veterans Home, four gigantic tents were set up, providing shade to hundreds of guests, including the residents, on a glorious sunny day. Dignitaries took to the podium to pay tribute to those men and women who have served fearlessly to ensure our freedoms in foreign wars and in days long since passed. The Vineland High School Band lent majesty to the proceedings with stirring renditions of a patriotic medley, “The National Anthem,” and “Taps.” Delsea Regional High School ROTC students posted and later retired the Colors (U.S. and New Jersey flags) with dignity as the aging veterans saluted with the same pride and reverence as when they were on active duty decades ago. One of the most moving parts of the ceremony was the flower remembrance, when NJVMH employees, volunteers and families of those residents who have passed away in the past year placed a flower at the tomb of the unknown soldier on the grounds of the facility. I was shocked that 79 residents died in the past year. This high number accentuates the national statistics — between 1,000 and 1,500 WWII veterans die each year. I sat next to Sidney Brody during the ceremony. As the oldest Jewish war veteran in Vineland, the 88-year-old Mr. Brody and Dottie Cullen, a tireless supporter of Veterans in town, will serve as the Grand Marshals of a motorcade of veterans that will start at the NJVMH and culminate with their arrival at the New Jersey Motorsports Park this Saturday, May 30, to kick off the Cumberland County Community Festival (see our Festival Guide beginning on p. 13). Mr. Brody remarked during the ceremony that he thinks of this Veterans Home as “God’s Waiting Room.” With events like Thursday’s and the care they show each day, the NJVMH staff makes the wait a lot more dignified and comfortable.

Other community service includes his 17 years as active member on the Vineland Zoning Committee. Zagari is a former transportation industry professional and a golf enthusiast. A Teacher with Class To teach is to touch the lives of many, help them learn life’s lessons and to make a difference in those lives. One looks back with apppreciation to the brilliant teachers, with gratitiude to those who touched our lives the most. After 48 years, some former students of Mrs. Jesse Satterlee did just that. Five former students of Edgarton Memorial School class of 1962 gathered for a small reunion at the Vintage Rose Tea Room in Millville. Satterlee, who turns 99 on May 27, was the guest of honor. “Four of us who met that day feel that in some way Mrs. Sattelee was our inspiration for becoming teachers,” writes Betty Tamagni. “She was often our counselor, confidant, definitely a role model and a very special person. She not only taught the curriculum but she also gave so much of herself to her students.” Seals Recognize Grads, Scholarship Winners More than 250 YMCA swimmers and parents attended the YMCA of Vineland Seals Swim Team Banquet. The team honored four graduating seniors: Brandon Baker, Victoria Satterlee sees quite a few of her former students regularly. “For a teacher to live in the heart and memory of even a single child is the best tribute of all. And Satterlee lives in the hearts and memories of so many people,” Tamagni adds. “Thank you for believing, guiding, and encouraging us to become all that we could be.” Happy Birthday to Mrs. Jesse Satterlee, who turns 99 on May 27.

EIN, MANAGING EDITOR } Screamin’ Green It’s the color of springtime in southern New Jersey. W ith all the rainy weather we’ve been having this spring, the landscape of southern New Jersey seems especially green. There’s been a explosion of color in every shade of green imaginable. Driving to work and just tooling around the yard, I have noticed the layers of green more than ever this year. There’s yellow-greens against shamrock and emerald green, and the spring green of budding foliage against the rich, darker hue of the pines and spruces. Perhaps the greens are easier to appreciate on overcast days, without the glare of the sunlight. My online dictionary defines the adjective green as “the color of growing foliage, between yellow and blue in the spectrum” and gives the example, “green leaves.” Well, that’s a good working definition, but for me, it just doesn’t cover what surrounds me in the great outdoors this time of year. To see what the general public describes as green, I went to the Crayola website. After all, the crayon company asks the public for new color names from time to time. Here are some of the greens our kids are coloring with these days— asparagus, caribbean green, electric lime, fern, forest green, granny smith apple, jungle green, magic mint, mountain meadow, olive green, pine green, screamin’ green, sea green, shadow, and tropical rain forest. It’s interesting that most of the greens in the coloring box have names taken from nature. The exception is “screamin’ green,” which seems to sum up that explosion of color we’re seeing outdoors right now. Looking through my kids’ crayons, I failed to find one labeled screamin’ green, but I envision it being a fresh neon green, the type of translucent, almost psychedelic hue with which the landscape is dotted in springtime, before the foliage turns to the darker, dustier shades of summer. As a college student, I spent a summer in northern California working for the Forest Service. By the ime I got there in mid-May, the mountainous landscape had already had its green-up and was beginning to turn brown. Plus, I was working on a crew looking for beetle-killed trees— brown spires in a sea of forest green pines—that we then marked on a map and set up for salvage sales. So all summer, my eyes hardly glimpsed the East Coast deciduous green I was accustomed to. We took trips to the valley (where we did our grocery shopping) and the only place I recall seeing green was at a golf course. That was the only time I’ve ever played the game, and I think I enjoyed it mostly for being enveloped in green for but a few hours. What is it about green? Green is the healing color, they say, and in fact studies have shown that hospital patients recover quicker when they have a view of the outdoors. R.S. Ulrich reported in an article in Science magazine that “patients in a suburban Pennsylvania hospital between 1972 and 1981 were examined to determine whether assignment to a room with a window view of a natural setting might have restorative influences. Twenty-three surgical patients assigned to rooms with windows looking out on a natural scene had shorter postoperative hospital stays, received fewer negative evaluative comments in nurses’ notes, and took fewer potent analgesics than 23 matched patients in similar rooms with windows facing a brick building wall.” Now, there’s a reason to ask for a window “seat.” Although I enjoyed my summer in California and had the experience of a lifetime, I returned in late August in time for my senior year of college. As the pilot prepared to land and the suburbs of Philadelphia came into view, I noted the foliage was no longer the screamin’ green of spring. But compared to the browns I had seen all summer, the landscape was green…and my eyes drank it up.

Call for Free Estimate www.herbsshamrocklandscapingllc.com t was the first week of May, 1888, when the Vineland Evening Journal reported that C.F. Garrrison moved his family into a new state facility at East Landis Avenue. Garrison would be in charge of what was then known as the New Jersey Institute for Feeble Minded Women, 43 years after his father, Cumberland County Senator Stephen Ayers Garrison, had argued in the State Senate for the need to recognize and provide care for retarded children. By May 25, 1888, the Evening Journal reported that the facility was ready to accept patients. Five women were soon housed in what later became the superintendent’s quarters. Today, the institution is known as the Vineland Developmental Center and at the moment remains one of seven such facilities in the state. As one website indicates, it should not be confused with the former Training School, which settled across the street from it in 1888 through the efforts of Garrison’s brother, Olin. The online description calls attention to its sprawling campus, but the center didn’t begin with all that is there today. Initially, the institution started with only a few buildings and, according to the Times Journal, a $6,916 operating budget. Over the first half of the 20th century, the Developmental Center expanded considerably in every facet of its existence. By 1952, it covered 270 acres and housed a total of 1,850 patients at its Landis Avenue site, its branch on Almond Road, and its center in Red Bank, New Jersey. Its facilities expanded to include cottages for its patients as well as a hospital and its budget had increased to $1,211,000. George Barton Thorn served as director for 31 years and was succeeded by Frederick A. Klauminzer. Throughout the decades, however, its mission, as identified by the New Jersey Department of Human Services website “to provide and promote services that enhance the quality of life, as well as meet the individual needs of our ladies” has never wavered. Throughout the early 20th century, the Developmental Center produced an estimated one-third of its food, growing much of it on 180 acres. The Times Journal reported that the center contained “120 head of cattle, Getting Divorced? { 8 } the grapevine | MAY 27, 2009 Bonnie L. Laube, Esq.

A program called State Use also allowed patients to manufacture stockings and underwear that were then exchanged for items like furniture and mattresses made by other institutions throughout New Jersey. In 1952, the Vineland campuses served different grade levels. The lowest grades and some of the highest grades were housed at the Almond Road branch where the older grades also served as attendants. The Red Bank location was considered a service center or “finishing school” as the Times Journal reported. In addition to intensive training, the women were permitted to work for families in area homes, contributing a portion of their pay to finance the Central Jersey program. The patients here were allowed to maintain their own bank account. While each patient was required to report back to the center each night for recreation, she could earn a week away from the facility as she adjusted. The program’s development of the patient’s independence could ultimately lead to a discharge from the institution. The expert leadership of the center was consistent. By the time Klauminzer assumed control, he carried credentials that included more than 10 years as director of education and training at Connecticut’s Southbury Training School as well as a combined eight years at two other institutes and nearly 10 years as teacher and administrator in the Rahway, New Jersey public school system. The one problem the Developmental Center faced in its early years was overcrowding. The Times Journal cites the situation as reaching as far back as 1904. Today the center has a population of 500, according to the New Jersey Department of Human Services website. And in addition to following its mission statement, it has added the motto “Special Care for Special People.” I Varicose • Veins • Featured on ? and WWW.GRAPEVINENEWSPAPER.COM | Reach Out To The Most Qualified Specialist Minimally Invasive Insurance covered 30 min.

The City of Vineland is initiating a program to address the growing problem of disabled, abandoned, and/or unregistered vehicles on private property. In addition to being an eyesore, these vehicles have the potential to leak gasoline, oils, transmission fluid and antifreeze onto the ground, causing environmental problems and general blight. In addition, the City of Vineland Code prohibits the storage of abandoned or unregistered vehicles on properties. City Code Enforcement staff are coducting neighborhood inspections throughout the City to identify properties with disabled/abandoned vehicles. The owners of these properties will receive notices from City staff requiring removal of the vehicle(s) from their property within 15 days. Property owners will also receive information regarding options to have the disabled/abandoned vehicles removed from their property at no cost. Our goal through this program is to provide convenient remedies for the affected individuals while improving the quality of life for all City residents. { 16 } the grapevine | MAY 27, 2009 Any questions concerning the program should be addressed to Department of Licenses and Inspections, Code Enforcement Division, 856-794-3806.

Our research entailed learning the birds’ daily routine and sites of roosting and feeding. We caught the sandpipers in mist nets, banded them with individually numbered metal bands as well as colored and lettered flagging, took several morphometric (body) measurements, and acquired blood and feather samples. This collected data will be used to examine the movement patterns of this species and to monitor their population trends when combined with existing data and ongoing research on their stopover location along the Delaware Bay. Why study the Semipalmated of our South American expedition, reinstituted the shorebird research along New Jersey’s Bayshore. He began documenting the plunging weights of shorebirds using the Delaware Bay. With no other available stopover sites farther north, shorebirds would not have enough fuel reserves to complete their migration to reach their Arctic breeding grounds. In 2003, the Red Knot population at Delaware Bay dropped to 16,000, down from an approximate count of 95,000 some 20 years prior. In March of 2008, New Jersey instilled a moratorium on the harvest of horseshoe crabs. Opposition to the moratorium was fierce from fishermen, but the hope remains that Delaware and Maryland will also introduce limitations on horseshoe crab harvest. Back to our study of the Semipalmated disease, as well as sustenance hunting by poor villagers. But the fact that these two species both feed upon the same diminishing horseshoe crab eggs at the Delaware Bay creates a link between them and their all too similar predicaments. “The Semipalmated Sandpipers cement the underpinning that something more is in play here than just a problem isolated to the Red Knots,” said Eric Stiles, NJAS Vice President of Conservation and Stewardship and fellow expedition participant. After spending two days in Paramaribo, Suriname, dealing with lost luggage and problems with our field gear, we traveled to French Guiana via a ferry crossing of the Marowijne River. We spent one week catching Semipalmated Sandpipers on the sandy and silty beach of the Réserve Naturelle de l’Amana. The Awala-Yalimapo Unfortunately, we acquired first-hand experience with shorebird poaching. Gunfire resounded in close proximity to our research site and Dr. Arie Spaans, a Dutch ecologist and ornithologist with years of experience with Suriname’s nature and conservation activities, confronted the offenders. Shorebird hunting is illegal in Suriname, but, unfortunately, continues among some of the locals. They begrudgingly left the area with 30 sandpipers in their bag. After our long hot day of fieldwork, we were greeted with two slashed tires on our vehicle. No matter what part of the world you are in, wrongful acts of retaliation are universal. The topic of poaching was paramount in our dinner later that week with the American Ambassador to Suriname. Lisa Bobbie Schreiber Hughes, originally from The author stands on a South American mudflat in front of a mist net used to capture shorebirds. (Photo courtesy Eric Stiles.) Center: A banded and flagged Semipalmated Sandpiper. Right: On their spring stopover along the Delaware Bay, both the sandpiper and the Red Knot feed on eggs of horseshoe crabs such as these. Sandpiper? To answer that, let me introduce a more famous shorebird, the Red Knot, and its plight. The dwindling population of Red Knots has been tied to the plummeting number of horseshoe crab eggs on the Delaware and New Jersey shores of the Delaware Bay. The Delaware Bay, used by several shorebird species as a stopover location, has the geography and food resources to allow them to gain sufficient weight to complete their journey, thus making this area a critical stop between wintering areas in South America and breeding grounds in the Arctic. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, when the importance of this region for migrating birds was first realized, the harvest of horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus) was minimal to nonexistent. By the late 1990s, horseshoe crab harvesting for bait increased due to a rise in the whelk industry. In 2000, Dr. David Mizrahi, New Jersey Audubon’s Vice President for Research and Monitoring and the leader Sandpiper. Semi’s and Red Knots do not inhabit the same wintering or breeding grounds, yet the sandpiper population estimates were also declining rapidly. At one time, the Delaware Bay had 175,000 sandpipers using the stopover habitat, a number that has now decreased to about 45,000. “We had already found a 50 percent decline over 15 years by 2006,” said Mizrahi. “Now, this is a 70 to 80 percent decline since the survey in the 1980s. I think it’s alarming. There just doesn’t seem to be a major change down in the wintering areas of either the Red Knot or the Semipalmated Sandpiper to explain the decline in either species. The Arctic breeding grounds of the Red Knot also have not changed. But what we do know is that there have been changes in the stopover area both birds share in North America.” Resistance towards the ban on horseshoe crab harvesting has pointed to other risk factors for the Red Knot, such as land contamination, habitat loss in the Canadian Arctic and in Tierra del Fuego, area in the extreme northwest corner of the country is known for its sea turtle research and many of the reserve staff assisted us in our efforts. We also captured several Bulldog bats found along the coast. The relatively large orange-colored bats chew and destroy mist nets. As much as I wanted to handle the bats, I took photos and left the toothy mammals to those with bat-handling experience. All of the early pre-dawn mornings combined with extremely late nights of shorebird capturing and processing rewarded us with successful numbers of birds being banded and to buoy our hopes for more success on our return to Paramaribo. Work in Suriname was different. No walk through the mosquito infested jungle to the sandy beach with the sea breeze. Instead, we had a mosquito-infested walk along the dikes to a hot and still mudflat. Some days we set up on the “dry” mudflat with the particularly sticky mud, and other days we were in the wet mudflat over several inches of muddy water. Clarksboro (Gloucester County), New Jersey, is extremely interested in environmental and humanitarian issues in Suriname. We were honored to host her visit to our research site and hope it enlightened her to the ongoing battle that shorebirds, such as the Semipalmated Sandpiper and Red Knot, endure. Their battle occurs right here in our backyard along the Delaware Bay as well as in the backyards of people living in Suriname, French Guiana, the Canadian tundra, and all over the world. We can help to make a difference if we choose to acknowledge that we are a part of the ecosystem and not just observers. I invite all readers to come and visit the Delaware Bayshore and other “hot spot” birding locales right here in southern New Jersey. I encourage people to go out and explore and witness the spectacular bird migration, not just of shorebirds, but also raptors and songbirds, that occurs right here in our own backyards.

One of the latest devices his company is promoting is a remote controller called Control4. “It’s a cool device,” says Dottie. The purpose of Control4 is a highly advanced universal remote. Control4 can combine all electronic devices such as the television, DVD player and cable box, which later can have added features that can control thermostats, lights and even garage doors. The device uses a RS232 laser to give input commands to electronic devices, which sends confirmed commands to devices as opposed to regular infared laser beams that are unconfirmed. Dottie further explains that his business is different than a normal Best Buy. “We are not in the business to sell televisions.

I Culinary Adventures { STEPHEN WILSON / PHOTO: JILL McCLENNEN } Road Food Traveling presents the opportunity to try regional specialities. oad trips are a delicious opportunity to try new foods. I shun the typical road food that lines the interstate highways, the corporate soul-less fast food joints. Sure, you know what you’re going to get, but I’m an adventurous sort of guy and I like eating the regional specialties. I especially like to eat what the locals eat, because I can tell a lot about folks by what they eat. Jill and I recently took a road trip down to South Carolina to make the wedding cake for my cousin, Katie, and her new husband. The trip down was an adventure in itself, mostly because of the rather large wedding cake that we had packaged up in boxes in the trunk as well as the ridiculous amount of traffic that lined the beltway around Washington D.C. What should have been an eight-hour trip ended up taking 11 hours. Fortunately, the cake made it safe and sound, and Katie was happy that we got to play such an R important role in her special day. Once we got the cake safely in the fridge at the reception site, we decided to head out and explore. Since we were in Dillon, South Carolina, we wanted to get some southern food. (Anyone who has driven down I-95 has been by Dillon, although they may not know it—Dillon is the home to South of the Border, the Mexican-themed kitsch tourist trap just south of the North Carolina border.) So how does one find a good restaurant in unfamiliar territory? Ask the locals, of course. The lady at the desk (with an almost incomprehensible southern accent) mentioned a few places, and finally settled on the barbeque joint next the hotel, which struck me as suspicious. Jill and I decided to drive around a bit to see what we stumbled upon. We headed toward downtown Dillon, but it was a little dilapidated, and there wasn’t too much there in the way of food. We stopped into one place, a grill that had one occupied table and an unimpressive menu. We moved on. We were headed back toward the hotel, to the original place that was half-heartedly recommended to us, when we drove up to a small restaurant with a full parking lot and an unassuming façade. Papa Tom’s, it was called, and as soon I saw it, I recognized that this was one of the places the lady at the front desk had mumbled to herself. We quickly pulled in. We perused the menu and settled on a barbeque sandwich platter and fried chicken; both came with fresh slaw and French fries. To drink, we went for sweet tea (the only other option in the South is lemonade). We were warned that it would be Continued on next page Gourmet Lunches & Dinners Take Outs & Package Goods SERVING THE FOOD YOU LOVE IN A VERY DIFFERENT WAY.

After seating ourselves in the tiny dining room and watching the locals filter in, our food came out. The chicken was lightly breaded and golden brown. It looked and smelled incredible. I tore off a piece of meat, and the juices literally dripped from the meat. It tasted as good as it looked, and we quickly devoured both pieces. The tea, which I had found too sweet by itself, was actually a wonderful foil to the salty, greasy chicken. The slaw was crunchy and creamy and cooled my mouth. The fries were okay, and with a few squirts of catsup, went well with the rest of the meal. Jill’s pulled pork was tender and vinegary, and on a white bread roll with slaw on top, it was darn good. We chatted it up with the woman who had taken our order. She owns and runs the shop with her sister, and she was happy to see a couple of northerners enjoying her southern food. If I’m ever back in Dillon, I’ll be sure to stop at exit 193 for some more of Papa Tom’s. I Stephen Wilson along with his wife Jill McClennen owns The Sweet Life Bakery.

Fiesta anyone? That’s this week’s theme! Colorful, fun recipes bursting with flavor. I’m a fan of Tex-Mex food. Spicy? Bring it on! My tastebuds over the past four years have really started to prefer spicy foods. My husband and I enjoy making tacos and fajitas at home, we prefer ground turkey, or chicken strips, but they can also be made with ground beef, ground chicken, sliced flank/skirt steak or they can be meat-free. But no matter what else goes in them, we pile them high with fresh veggies! Hope you enjoy this week’s recipes. The following recipe and story is shared by Kelly Secada, who writes: “ My family loves tacos, burritos, and fajitas. We enjoy experimenting with different ingredients and have come up with some fun and great tasting results throughout the years. This recipe is one of our favorites and the fried ice cream is a true indulgence that you just have to give into once in a while.

To others, it is a relatively unknown government entity. In New Jersey, there are almost 100 sewerage authorities in counties and municipalities that are a vital part of water pollution prevention. They were created by New Jersey statue in 1946 under Title 40 Municipalities and Counties, chapter 40:14A-7, and cited as the “sewerage authority law.” The Landis Sewerage Authority (LSA) was created by the then Township of Landis in 1946, hence its name. The township surrounded the one-square-mile Borough of Vineland. Once formed, the LSA developed plans and constructed a primary facility in 1950 that replaced a very old system, which was G peppers in half, remove inner seeds and stem, then slice into 1/4-1/8 inch strips. Peel and cut onion into 1/4-1/8 inch slices. Pour some olive oil into a separate saucepan and place onions into the pan, sprinkle with a little salt and sauté over medium-high heat until caramelized. Remove onions from pan and place into a bowl, cover with foil to keep warm. In same saucepan add a little more olive oil and cook pepper slices until tender. Add onions back into the pan with the pepper slices and stir to combine. Microwave tortillas for 30 seconds, add some onions and peppers onto each warmed tortilla, add a few chicken slices, sprinkle with cheese, top with salsa.
