Visit us online www.grapevinenewspaper.com For about 12 days starting June 17, bicyclist Chris Gottwald will race across America for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem counties. Chris Gottwald pedaled on a lonely road through the mountains of Arizona, a couple of hours into the second day of his 3,000-mile bicycle Race Across America with still a couple of hours to go before rest. Something kept running through his mind. It wasn’t the thrill of competing in bicycle’s most grueling race. It wasn’t the many miles he had already pedaled as part of a two-man team in the 2008 edition of the race. It wasn’t the many more miles he would have to endure. Cold, tired and hungry, all he could think about was a chicken sandwich. Appearing out of nowhere like a ghost in the night, there it was. A Hardee’s sign. Hardly fine dining, but it looked like heaven to Gottwald, a Vineland resident. “Pull over,” Gottwald yelled to the five-man crew accompanying him on the race. “There’s a Hardee’s over there. Get me something to eat.” The crew, puzzled, glanced at the sign. “Uh, Chris,” someone said, “that’s not a Hardee’s sign. It’s a traffic sign. It says ‘No passing.’ ’’ The Race Across America has played with many a mind of the long-distance bicycle competitor. Riders often get only a few hours sleep per day on this approximately 12-day cross-country trip. Sleep deprivation leads to hallucinations.

Olympiad Award Winners STORY AND PHOTOS: MARIE TEDESCO On Sunday, the top five Cumberland County graduating scholar-athletes were honored for their outstanding achievements by the Jewish War Veterans Memorial Post 601. The 35th Olympiad Awards were held at Beth Israel Synagogue on E Park Avenue in honor and memory of the 11 Israelis who lost their lives due to terrorism at the 1972 Olympic games in Munich Germany. “This is a way of honoring them,” commented Howard Hoffman, the commander of Post 601.

The Museum was selected by the Cumberland County Cultural and Heritage Commission to receive the award in recognition of its ongoing work promoting the history and culture of southern New Jersey. The award specifically acknowledges the Museum’s dedication to preserving and promoting the history of the Millville Army Air Field, which was ‘America’s First Defense Airport’—dedicated in 1941 by the U.S. War Department to protect the Atlantic coast from foreign invasion. The air field’s vital role as a pilot training base during World War II had worldwide impact and also influenced the growith and development of southern New Jersey and its surrounding communities. “It is a great honor to receive this prestigious award and be recognized along with so many outstanding organizations and individuals,” said Russell Davis, MAAFM president. “Our Museum board of directors, staff, volunteers and membership are dedicated to preserving and promoting Millville’s unique WWII aviation history, honoring our military and veterans, and educating young people. “The historic role of Millville Airport during WWII is an important part of the cultural heritage of southern New Jersey,” continued Davis. “Our Museum works diligently to create ongoing awareness through our displays, eventsand outreach programs.

The Library’s director is Gloria Urban. The Foundation Board wishes to extend an invitation to the public to attend the Foundation Board’s next regularly scheduled meeting on June 15, at the Vineland Public Library, 1058 East Landis Avenue. The Foundation Board seeks new members to join the Foundation and assist in various fundraising events and activities. The Board has successfully raised funds for the Library and its capital improvements including the new addition to the Library through such fundraising events as philanthropist of the year and wine tasting dinners. The Foundation is eager to sponsor new events. The Foundation meets once a month in the early evening hours at the Vineland Public Library. The meetings are fun and interactive. There is no financial obligation to join the Foundation Board. It is the hope and intention of the Foundation that the new membership will result in the infusion of fresh ideas for fundraising events so that the Foundation can carry out its goals as they relate to the Vineland Public Library. —Richard M. Pescatore President Vineland Public Library Foundation Hershey Ice Cream donated the SUPER Water Ice. The following is a copy of the letter I received from Lisa A. Williams, ADC, CALA, Supervisor of Recreation at the N.J. Veterans Memorial Home at Vineland. I wanted to share her comments with all who contributed to this event. It was an effort that we can all take pride in and know we made a difference in some very SPECIAL LIVES— OUR VETERANS’. Thank to all who participated. —Pearl Giordano Our Most Precious Resources Our children are our greatest resource in Vineland. Many adult children have returned to Vineland after the completion of their education, but more are needed through your encouragement. If you have a son or daughter, they should be inspired to get their education and then look for job opportunities in Vineland. If parents spur their children to come back to their hometown, we will regain these valuable resources. It is important to remember that when your son or daughter gets married and has children, they could be many miles away. You will miss seeing your children and grandchildren on a daily or weekly basis. Grandmom and Grandpop will not be a regular part of their young life. I praise ALL those families for raising fine young men and women who have returned and continued the tradition of making Vineland their home and improving the community. Because of their decision to return to Vineland and put their energies into this community, the town has clearly benefitted. I know their parents will remain a big part of their lives and of their grandchildren’s lives, as well. After all, in the end, isn’t that what life is really all about. —Stephen I. Plevins Salute to Veterans Ceremony a Highlight Dear Pearl, On behalf of the residents of the NJ Veterans Memorial Home at Vineland, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to you and all involved with the Cumberland County Festival for the Salute to Veterans Ceremony, which was held on Saturday. May 30th, during the NJ Vintage Grand Prix at the New Jersey Motorsports Park. Because of your organization’s efforts. our Veterans were able to receive an honorary escort to the Motorsports Park, receive recognition during the program and enjoy a beautiful sunny day at the Racetrack. The Salute to Veterans Ceremony was a moving tribute to all Veterans who sacrificed their time with their families, careers and youth to support and defend our great Nation. These men and women came home years ago, but many did not receive any acknowledgement for the physical and emotional issues that they faced. We were all so grateful that you, the entire staff at the NJ Motorsports Park, the V.S.C.C.A. and the NJ Vintage Grand Prix invited our facility to take part in such a wonderful event. I was so proud to be a part of an event that showed such great patriotic pride for our Veterans. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have you all come into our lives here at the Veterans Home. You are truly making a difference in the lives of others. Again. I sincerely appreciate all that your Organizaiion has done to make the Salute to Veterans Day during the NJ Vintage Grand Prix a huge success. It will be an event that my residents will remember for the rest of their lives. —Lisa A.

The Foundation Board is a separate and distinct entity from the Library itself. The Foundation’s mission is to create an endowment that will nurture the financial needs of the library and ensure that the Vineland Public Library will remain in an economically strong and viable position to carry out its goals. The Foundation has currently undertaken a membership drive. The focus of the Foundation’s fundraising efforts as well as the endowment are centered upon the Library’s capital improvements and equipment needs as distinguished from funding for day-to-day library operation, salaries, etc. The recent addition of the Library’s electronic sign/message board as well as the Library’s new building expansion are examples of the type of financial assistance upon which the Foundation has focused its efforts. Cumberland County Festival a Success Thank you to the staff of The Grapevine for your support for the Cumberland County Festival. It was a great success and a wonderful experience for all concerned.

ED HILT I Editor’s Letter Rotary Club Awards $17,000 in Scholarships to Locals Seventeen of Vineland’s finest were the honored recipients of more than $17,000 in scholarships at the Rotary Club of Vineland’s Annual Scholarship and Recognition event. Held at the Ramada Inn last Wednesday night, the ceremony included the presentation of 12 different scholarships, many named in honor of long-time Rotarians who dedicated themselves to furthering the dreams of area students. Included among the scholarships were four $500 Hometown Heroes Scholarships, presented by The Grapevine. The funds for these scholarships were raised during our Hometown Heroes Gala in February. The Hometown Heroes project honored 24 unsung, everday heroes in Vineland earlier this year and the scholarship funds allow us to continue to promote among high school students the values of courage, compassion, character, humanity, personal initiative, and responsibility. We hope to continue both the Hometown Heroes project and the scholarships next year and are proud to have partnered with the Rotary Club in this endeavor. — Mike Epifanio, Editor & Publisher The 2009 Vineland Rotary Scholarship recipients: Monica C.

EIN, MANAGING EDITOR } School Trips Wanted: Chaperones to run after hyperactive kids and tiptoe through a glass museum. M ost parents of school-aged kids can tell you they’ve been on a few class trips. Now that my youngest are in fourth grade, I can look back on trips to the zoo (both Philadelphia and Cape May), to Storybook Land, to the Discovery Museum, the Academy of Natural Sciences and Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, and the list goes on. Last year, I accompanied my then-third graders on a class trip to Johnson’s Corner Farm (in Burlington County) to pick strawberries, and it inspired a return trip with the family in the summer. A couple of school trips have been especially memorable. When my daughter went to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden with her first grade class, her brothers were almost three, and I was looking forward to spending some rare one-on-one time with the big sister. She came home a couple of days before the trip and informed me that I was assigned to chaperone another little girl as well. So much for our mother-daughter time, but I would welcome the sweet little girl into our fold. Make that the sweet little girl with ADHD. An hour into the trip, I realized I wasn’t going to be able to keep up with this energizer bunny. There were busloads of school groups at the aquarium that day, and she was always one step ahead of us, blending into the crowd. It soured me on school trips for a while, and I thought I might be banned from chaperoning ever again, because, yes, we lost her for a while. So you can imagine my apprehension when I was assigned to chaperone three boys (one of my own and two classmates) on this year’s fourth-grade trip to Wheaton Arts. What’s that they say, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones? How about schools shouldn’t schedule class trips to glass museums! In truth, I loved the trip and from going four years ago with my daughter, I remembered it as an enjoyable day, when we learned about different art forms (ceramics, woodworking, etc.) and glassmaking, an important historic industry in the southern New Jersey area that has also grown into an artistic endeavor. But three boys at the glass museums? To add to my angst, there was a driving rain last Friday, so we were darting from one glass shop to the next all day long. We couldn’t picnic outside as we did on a sunny day four years earlier. This year, we watched the glassblowing demonstration first, then visited the ceramic and crafts shops, then had an indoor lunch. After lunch, I took the boys to the General Store, where they could look for souvenirs. In addition to penny candy (it’s more than a penny these days, but the old-fashioned stick candy is still affordable to boys with a small stash of spending money), this is my favorite spot to buy marbles, and the store has tons of other interesting inexpensive items. There was still an hour or so before we would board the buses, and only “glass houses” left to visit. Well, the boys had been extremely well behaved so far, but did I dare take them into the Paperweight Shop, for example, where “the prices can go as high as $10,000”? I could hear echoing in my brain the “you broke it, you bought it” refrain from childhood. It turns out I had nothing to worry about. I needed to remind my crew of the no-touching rule just once or twice. There was a moment or two when they met up with an energetic classmate in the Christmas shop (all glass-blown ornaments on several trees, including a topsy-turvy tree just dangling in the center of the room…Yikes!). But it was the only time I felt like I was walking on eggshells. We came away from this trip as we did our journey to Johnson Corner Farm last year—wanting to go back in summer. We will pick a sunnier day for the family trip, however. Call it a staycation, call it a day trip—there are plenty of places to go and things for families to do right here in our own backyard. Stay tuned: In a couple of weeks, The Grapevine will highlight some fun inexpensive trips you can take in and around Cumberland County. You, too, might feel compelled to go tiptoeing through a Christmas shop this summer.

T he Fresh and Specialty Foods Market is a summertime fixture on Landis Avenue and it heads into its fifth year still going strong. The Market starts June 20 and runs each Saturday (except July 4) from 8 a.m. to noon through August 15. It is presented by VDID/Main Street Vineland and is sponsored again this year by Sun National Bank. We call it the Fresh and Specialty Foods Market rather than a farmers’ market because, to expand its appeal, we increased the diversity of what the Market offers. In addition to fresh fruits, vegetables, and other produce, flower vendors and crafters will sell their wares. This is in addition to an exciting weekly lineup of events and activities for the family and children, including the return of favorite events from past years and some new ones. The Market will kick off with the Fifth Annual Health Expo presented by the Vineland office of ASPIRA, Inc., an agency serving our state’s Latino youth. The Expo will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will have health vendors and job staffing agencies doling out useful information. The Expo will also have music, food, and family-friendly activities. During Market hours, Miss Kathy—always a favorite with kids—will also be on hand. The Baby Parade was lots of fun last year and on June 27, it’s back with the theme of Hollywood Babies, parading at 9:30 a.m. After the Fourth of July break, bring your pet to the Market on July 11 for the second annual Pets on Parade. The competition will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the winners will be announced at 11 a.m. Lots of treasure will be hidden downtown—just waiting to be found— as kids will have a chance the following week to go on a Pirate’s Treasure Hunt. Come to Eco Day at the Market on July 25 and see how being friendly to the environment can be educational and entertaining. Everybody loves animals and fascinating critters of all sizes from Bridgeton’s Cohanzick Zoo visit the Market on August 1. The next Market, on August 8, conveniently falls on Vineland’s 148th birthday, so we’re going to celebrate at the Market. The Market will wrap up on August 20, as we encourage kids to contribute their drawings and paintings for the Children’s Clothesline Art Show. Each week of the market, you can cast your vote in the Little Miss & Mister Cherry Tomato photo contest. The winner will be crowned at the International Food & Cultural Festival on August 22, and will ride in the Holiday Parade on November 28. All the proceeds will go toward the great cause of downtown revitalization. For more information on the Fresh and Specialty Foods Market, including registration for activities and vendors, call the VDID/Main Street Vineland office or visit our website. *** Thanks to all the volunteers and staff who helped out at Thunder on the Avenue on Saturday, May 30, and the Vineland Family Soap Box Derby this past Saturday.

I Historical Vineland { VINCE FARINACCIO } The 1918 Epidemic Vineland was immune to neither spring nor fall flu outbreaks. here were no signs yet of panic. Health department authorities agreed that it was best to close all public facilities so as to prevent an outbreak. Hope prevailed, since months earlier the first wave proved to be less dangerous than expected. What no one at the time knew was that the second strain had mutated, becoming more lethal and changing its target without calculation or concern. What originally was fatal to juveniles, the elderly and the already ill, now preyed largely on healthy adults in their 20s and 30s. This might sound like a scene from a science fiction tale or a worst-case account of the recent swine flu, but it’s actually a description of what Vineland confronted in 1918 as it tried to fend off the influenza epidemic. The first wave of what is also known as the Spanish flu had struck the world in March. The second wave began in August, but it wasn’t until early October that its T symptoms surfaced in Vineland. Within three days of shutting down churches, movie theaters and dance halls, the borough witnessed the start of a monthlong crisis as the flu took up residency here. On October 7, the Evening Journal reported that an estimated 500 people had been stricken with the flu in this area. The newspaper attempted to calm residents by reporting that most of the cases were mild and, with proper precautions, would run their course with “little danger.” Overcrowding at the hospital along with a severely reduced staff who, unlike many of their co-workers, had temporarily managed to stave off the flu, forced Vineland Hospital Association President Frank Mennies to issue a plea for additional nurses. While some women responded, the appeal would continue for the rest of the month. By October 8, state authorities, who had not yet advised Vineland officials, issued a set of instructions, most of which the borough had already implemented on its own. At the same time, Philadelphia was reporting that its battle with influenza was waning. Whether that was considered a telltale sign for this area or just wishful thinking, doctors in Vineland were announcing two days later that the epidemic here had abated. The worst cases, they said, had developed into pneumonia. The Evening Journal also wrote that, according to reports, the borough was faring better than other towns. The next day, however, the state, realizing the seriousness of the flu’s spread in this area, sent Dr. Hymen Kean, a U. S. Public Health Service assistant surgeon, to Vineland where he met with local physicians and addressed residents at a public meeting. By now, the Evening Journal reported, it was believed that half of Vineland was infected. Stanisics Hall was commandeered for use as an auxiliary hospital and 30 brand new beds belonging to the Training School were transported to the hall. Within two days, all but nine were occupied. By October 15, it was announced prematurely that the epidemic here had diminished. Shortly after, it was decided that public facilities would not reopen until October 24. The Vineland epidemic was surrounded by conflicting reports on the number of cases and deaths that occurred here. An October 16 Evening Journal article reported that the results of a Borough Board of Health census indicated the epidemic wasn’t as bad as anticipated. The census—taken 18 days before the quarantine was lifted, hospitals emptied and fatalities subsided—revealed that of the 5,083 individuals recorded, 1,052 had been ill, 596 had recovered and six had died, a contradiction of the original report of 10 deaths. But, as the Evening Journal pointed out, the census had failed to include the southwest portion of the borough and any deaths of Landis Township residents treated in Vineland were not part of the tallies. So, while the borough might have had a lower death count than expected, the figures would be much higher if we examined the area that is now Vineland. For example, at the Training School, of the 287 cases among staff and patients, there were 28 deaths. The ban on public assemblies was extended another week. By November 3, area churches reopened for services and during that week, while the auxiliary hospital closed, dance halls, theaters and pool halls were back in operation. I Honda.

Included among them was the oldest Jewish War Veteran, Tom Lerner, 93, World War II. In addition, to receiving plaques from Post 601, each senior shook hands with and received letters of commendation from Cumberland County public officials, who spoke about their admiration for both the youth and the veterans. In particular, Cumberland County Freeholder Nelson Thomspon explained the importance of role models for today’s youth. He said: “You cannot argue with success. The mentoring process from [each student’s] faculty and the commitment of their parents mean so much. I am glad that the veterans recognize the future. What better mentors than war veterans?” Sigmond Ronis, awards committee chairman from Post 601, announced that the five Olympiad Award recipients are all outstanding in their respective sports and excelled exceedingly in each of their academic studies.

For this upcoming fall, she plans to attend Rutgers University for Pharmacy. Dana Parks from Vineland High School recognizes that she had a good support system to help her through school.“ I am so very grateful for my parents who have helped me so much.” During her high school career, Parks played soccer and softball, in which she made captain for both teams in her senior year. She will be attending St. Joseph’s University with a scholarship for business with a concentration in sports marketing management.

Race Across America Grand Opening Celebration Friday, June 19th 12 noon – 7 pm Refreshments & Hourly Giveaways Feel The Difference With Continued from cover bones are sometimes part of the journey. So is death. Two have died while competing in it. Gottwald, who was once hit by a car so hard his bicycle was broken in two, knows the dangers of the 3,000-mile race all too well. But it’s not going to stop him from making a second attempt, this time as a solo entry. He will depart Oceanside, California on June 17 and (God willing) complete the tortuous test June 29 in Annapolis, Maryland. If all goes well, Gottwald believes he can finish in the top three. If things go really well, he thinks he can win. Gottwald, who will turn 38 just days before the race, isn’t subjecting himself to this for fame, prize money ($10,000 to the victor) or personal glory. He’s doing it for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem counties. With the words and symbol of Big Brothers Big Sisters on his jersey as he travels across the nation, Gottwald hopes to raise money and awareness for that noble cause. Anyone wanting to join him in the fundraising effort, “Miles For Mentoring,” should access the website www.miles4mentoring.com for more information or to make a donation. “This is not about me winning the race; it’s about Big Brothers Big Sisters,” Gottwald said. “If I had a choice between winning the race and getting nothing for Big Brothers Big Sisters, or coming in last or not finishing or not even starting, and Big Brothers Big Sisters could get $100,000 or $1 million, I wouldn’t even show up. My focus is on Big Brothers Big Sisters. It’s all for them. It’s not for me.” A devoted family man, Gottwald spends as much time as possible with his wife, Jessica, and two beautiful daughters, Ghianama, 7, and Paezen, 3. His job as a FAA airspace system inspection pilot, flying out of the FAA William J. Hughes Tech Center in Pomona, frequently takes him far from home. He has trained relentlessly, pedaling about 10,000 miles a year, and up to 500 miles a week to get ready for this race. He bicycles from his Vineland home to work at the FAA Tech Center each day he is working at the office, a round-trip of 56 to 90 miles, depending upon whether he opts to take the “short” or “long” route. But somehow Gottwald has found room in his busy life for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Around the same time he decided to dedicate his Race Across America entry to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem counties by making them a beneficiary of fundraising efforts, he also signed up to be a Big Brother. He will soon meet his “Little.” Gottwald believes in the organization’s mission to mentor children.

He will be thinking about the ‘Littles’ on our waiting “I think it would have to take something catastrophic for us to not [finish] in the top three.” list, and the ‘Littles’ who already have Big Brothers and Big Sisters. To race 3,000 miles, and not think of himself, but think of Big Brothers Big Sisters, says a lot about him as a person and his character.” The race also says a lot about his dedication and toughness. Seasoned solo riders will take on this 3,000-mile Race Across America—facing sleep deprivation, extreme changes in elevation and weather, various road conditions and the potential for injury—on budgets of more than $20,000. Gottwald will run this race on about $8,000. Gottwald finished second last year on a two-man team (with bicycle shop owner Jeremy Burcham, of Connecticut) with a 8:30am – 3:30pm Vineland High School { 12 } the grapevine | JUNE 10, 2009 • Instruction by College Coaches • One-on-one private sessions available throughout June & July (contact Bob, 609-381-8660) • Lunch and Drinks Provided • Athletic Trainer Present For Information & Signups, contact Cedric Dawkins 691-2934 sjexcelfootballcamp@verizon.net five-man crew that included wife Jessica, two mini-vans, an air mattress and a prayer. Other teams had fully-stocked RVs with sleeping quarters and showering facilities, team doctors, a masseuse, a crew of eight to 10 people and the best food for the best performance. Gottwald was hoping for some of the same advantages and comforts this year as the well-financed riders, but that will depend upon how much money arrives via fundraising. Most likely, Gottwald will run this race about the same as last year, pedaling away and surrounded by two minivans and seeking that Hardee’s sign. But he’s not backing down. “Even if we are doing this at the greatest disadvantage, I don’t see why we wouldn’t be on the podium as a top-three finish,” Gottwald said. “That’s our minimum level of acceptance. I think it would have to take something catastrophic for us to not be in the top three.” Gottwald, a native of Indiana with other stops before settling in southern New Jersey four years ago, began his love of bicycle racing on BMX bikes as a child. He rode in races in Indiana and Europe in his late teens when his family moved overseas. His love of aviation took him to Purdue, a top aviation school that has produced astronauts. He was also on the cycling team at Purdue, and was the captain of the team as a junior and senior. When the Discovery Channel held its “Race to Replace” campaign in 2006 in an attempt to identify a top American racer through a race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway following Lance Armstrong’s retirement, Gottwald came in second overall and first in his age group. He met Armstrong afterward. The Discovery Channel Lance Armstrong team jersey presented to Gottwald for his finish hangs in his home. Gottwald, with a bicycle rider’s body of not quite 5-foot-10 and 140 pounds, would love to have a full-time career as a pro bicycle racer. But it wouldn’t pay the bills. “Unfortunately, it’s not like baseball or basketball where you can sit the bench and make a million dollars a year,” Gottwald said. So he continues to perform for love and a modest amount of prize money. Gottwald’s second, and last, super marathon Race Across America is not typically how he competes. He races in pro events that usually have stages in the style of the Tour de France and has been in the same race as Armstrong a few times. Gottwald said he will race at least another five years as a pro before pulling back to amateur and recreational status. Coaching is a possibility. The training and racing can be dangerous. Injury in the sport isn’t a matter of if, but when. Gottwald suffered a concussion and a broken collar bone from one crash, broke his hand at least twice and collided with a car during a training session that left his bike broken in two. Fortunately, he was in one piece after that accident and his injuries were minimal. These days, as he approaches 40 with a wife and young children at home, he said he is a little more conservative and careful in his racing style. “I still have to come home and cut the grass and be a dad,” he said. Jessica, his wife, has been totally supportive of the commitment. Gottwald’s entry into the “Race to Replace” was her idea. But she also sounds like she is looking forward to when his schedule is cut back for time and safety reasons. “It is hard sometimes,” Jessica said. “Sometimes, it’s almost like being a single mom in trying to take care of the house and the kids and everything else. But I know how much it means to him, and I know it’s not going to be forever.” Not forever. But a little while longer. Gottwald still has some things he would like to accomplish. One last Race Across America for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem counties is on the list, and for good reason. “With this race for Big Brothers Big Sisters, I would like to try to pay back to society all the things that I have gained and learned from racing and riding,” Gottwald said. “It’s really been a blessing. The sport has been really good to me. I hope this Race Across America for Big Brothers Big Sisters has a positive impact on not only my “Little,” but a lot of people.” I FREE VEIN SCREENING Varicose Veins? Leg Swelling?

For all of the above projects, Staggs chooses pressuretreated Southern Pine. “It’s a no-brainer to me: pressure-treated Southern Pine is real, it’s genuine and it’s a beautiful product,” says Staggs. “Add to that the natural, long-lasting, sturdy and safe elements, and you just can’t go wrong. If you’re conscious of your carbon footprint, then wood is your product; it’s one of the only naturally renewable products out there, and it takes remarkably less energy to manufacture than alternative building products.

As part of a Social Studies unit on Early American Living, Trish Harvie’s students experienced a day in the life of a student in the 1700s. The students dressed in early American clothing and pretended that their classroom was a one-room schoolhouse. They made marbles and horn books, and snacked on corn bread and cider. The class also learned about popular trades of the 1800s and tried their hands at making yarn from pieces of real sheep’s wool. Anuj Patel, became a printing apprentice and experienced what it was like to wear a yoke used for carrying buckets of water. “It was really heavy, but I had a lot of fun,” says Patel.

Member FDIC the grapevine { 23 } Up and Coming Troubador’s age range is 16 to 18, but their music is mature, well composed and musically cohesive. { JACQUELIN VOEGTLIN} o I’m standing backstage at Hangar 84, surrounded by kids sporting spiked hair and tight jeans. I can’t help but think that the next act will be something punk, screamo, metal. And then I hear 17-year-old Erika Ricchini, unknown to me up to this point, on stage with her band Troubador. Her voice pulls me like a siren would from the back of the place to the very front of the stage. I couldn’t have been any closer if I tried…and I did. Hailing from Delran, New Jersey, the band is made up of drummer Adam Cattell, guitarist Phil Smith, guitarist Chris Small, bassist Elliott Reynolds and singer/pianist Ricchini. Most impressive after hearing their set, was learning that Troubador’s age range is but 16 to 18 years old. You wouldn’t know this from the music they belt. It is mature, well composed and musically cohesive. This is an achievement that most young musicians struggle with. The band formed when “Erika passed a note to Chris in Algebra class, asking him if he’d like to start a band,” says Phil Smith. From that day they began practicing as a unit, and it came together quickly. The band has a folkie, beautiful sound and is often compared to the Texas-based group, Eisley. This has much to do with lead singer Ricchini’s outstanding vocal abilities. She’s got a S haunting and imperfectly perfect way about her. The constant comparison to the aforementioned band “does not bother [Troubador] at all.” They admit they would not exist if it weren’t for Eisley, but say, “I hope we are never perceived as an Eisley cover band.” There’s no chance of th. One of the great things about younger, unsigned musicians is the innocence and truth behind the tunes. A manufactured group with plenty of managerial training will often lose its sincerity—and fast. Troubador’s lyrics have everything to do with failed relationships and the typical high school goings-on, and can easily be viewed as yet another whiney group of youngsters. However, the musical accompaniment brings their work to another level—a more perceivable and mature place. So, how’d they pull it off? Guitarist Phil Smith recognizes “a guy named Dave Adams, who has worked with Steve Howe, guitarist for multi platinum selling band Yes,” as a huge help in the recording process. Adams helped Troubador record for free, which speaks volumes. A man with Dave Adams’ resume wouldn’t help any old band he came across. The group admits that they were rushed through the recording HANGAR 84 NEXT THREE SATURDAY, JUNE 13 Maps and Atlases. Hangar 84, 20 S. Sixth St., Vineland. Troubador is opening act. 6 p.m. $12-$15.

The band doesn’t have too much recorded as of now, but plans to spend plenty of time in the studio very soon. They’re hoping to “come out of [the studio] with some form of tangible recording, like CD or vinyl, as opposed to online mp3.” Troubador is scheduled to release their debut album, which is not yet titled, this July and guitarist Chris Small is “looking forward to [seeing] where we go in the future with the music we are working on.” My guess? They’ll go pretty far, but hey, that’s just one opinion. Check them out for yourself at www.myspace.com/troubadork.

It was the perfect fuel for a canoeing trip. After a few hours floating peacefully down the Maurice, we headed for our house where a backyard barbeque was planned. One of the best facets of owning the bakery is the ready access to a professionally stocked kitchen, and I had taken advantage of this by preparing some items ahead of time. I had boiled beets I got from a local farm stand; I had washed ruffled green leaves of lettuce that I’d picked from my garden; I had made salad dressing with extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) and some homemade raspberry vinegar given to me a few months ago. When we got back to the house, we found that Grandmom had made potato salad and my mother-in-law had created a batch of her amazing deviled eggs (also from the local brown eggs). Greg and Gabby wanted to help, so Greg butchered a free-range chicken that I had picked up at Bagliani’s in Hammonton while Gabby made a wonderful marinade with lime juice, garlic, brown sugar, EVOO, and salt and pepper.

Gabby peeled, diced, and dressed the beets that I had cooked the previous day while I made a quick salsa with a can of organic black beans, fresh garlic greens, oregano, tart crisp rhubarb (all from the garden), a plum tomato, and EVOO. I then threw together some guacamole from ripe avocados I had picked up at La Plaza on Landis Avenue. Everything came together nicely, and after heating some fresh corn tortillas on the grill, dinner was ready. We laid everything out on the dining room table and dug in. We made little tacos with the tortilla and various fillings. Fresh Jersey strawberry shortcake and Jill’s homemade limoncello finished off the dinner wonderfully.

I Recipe Corner { LISA ANN DiNUNZIO } Recipe Swap Baked macaroni and cheese with a slice of coconut pie. reetings! I’m always happy to hear from folks who tell me how much they enjoy some of my family’s favorite recipes. My love for family, traditions, cooking and baking, and simply sharing those things with others, makes all the hard work that goes into publishing cookbooks so worth it. Food is so much more than “just food,” it’s about sharing a part of you, and your family’s history. Throughout the years I have created recipes, tweaked recipes and have taken pleasure in trying other people’s recipes, many of which have fast become some of my favorites. So keep those recipes coming, don’t underestimate how much someone else would enjoy one of your tried-and-true favorites! The following recipe and story is shared by Josephine Yuhas, who writes: 2 lbs. New Yorker American cheese, cut into cubes Salt and pepper, to taste crumbs. Top the macaroni and cheese with a layer of the bread crumb mixture and bake as directed. G “These have quickly become family favorite recipes since purchasing your cookbook, Lisa Ann’s Seasoned With Love II, about a year ago.” My husband Nick and I really enjoy home-cooked meals. As parents, business owners, and with running our children, Christopher and Alyse, to their many sport events, we look forward to a comforting meal whenever time allows, and this is as comforting as it gets! I often make these, and other dishes to share with my church family as well. I hope that other Grapevine readers enjoy them as much as we do.” Preheat oven to 350°. In a large sauce pot add milk, cheese, butter, salt and pepper over medium heat. Allow ingredients to warm through and melt together, stirring occasionally. Grease a large casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add the cooked and drained macaroni to the baking dish. Start to ladle the cheese, milk and butter mixture over the macaroni, (you may not need to use all the liquid mixture). Sprinkle the top generously with the bread crumb topping (recipe below), then bake uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the bread crumbs turn golden brown. Remove from oven; wait 10 minutes before serving. Coconut Custard Pie 3 cups milk 4 eggs, beaten 1 cup flaked coconut ¾ cup sugar 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract ½ tsp. salt 1 unbaked pie shell Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl add milk, eggs, coconut, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix ingredients until well combined. Pour into pie shell and cover edge of crust with aluminum foil or pie shield, to prevent crust from burning. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Serves 8. As always, Bon Appetit.

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.

Add new shrubbery? Replace the cracked sidewalk? When it comes time to enhance the curb appeal of your home, there are a multitude of improvement projects you can consider. But which ones will add the highest resale value to your home? According to many experts, homeowners should “think big” and invest in projects that make a significant impact on the exterior of their home. Adding window flower pots or garden flags are a nice touch, but they don’t add lasting value to a home. To enhance your enjoyment while living in your home, and to add resale value when you decide to sell your house, consider projects that impressively kick up the overall value. Some tips to accomplish this goal include: Tip #1 – Create a bay or bow window on the front of your home. Take out a few C side-by-side double-hung windows and replace them with a bay or bow window. These dramatic windows extend the living space on the interior of the home and create a new focal point for a house. Make certain to maximize your investment by insisting on low-maintenance energy-efficient windows. Tip #2 – Invest in a strong roof with a strong warranty. The roof is one of the most vulnerable areas of the home’s structure, so when it’s time to replace it, start with lots of research. Look for a low-maintenance roof that can withstand fire, high winds, impact, hail and severe weather. Look for companies that offer a 50-year limited warranty on synthetic roofing tiles with options in slate and shake styles. You want a roof that will laugh in the face of Mother Nature, as it stands up to hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms and searing temperatures.
