Visit us online www.grapevinenewspaper.com Guthrie’s myspace captions this photo “Me and Donovan in Denmark 2002.” The 1960s iconic Woodstock legend performs here on the 40th anniversary of that famous music festival. umberland County Fairgrounds might not have the prestige accorded Max Yasgur’s farm in upstate New York, site of the Woodstock Festival held 40 years ago this summer, but it shares the distinction of hosting a legendary performer C from that festival this weekend. Arlo Guthrie will take the stage at the 3rd Annual Southern Shore Music Festival on Saturday evening for a set of new and old material from his catalogue. Festival organizer Bob Rose had been trying to book Guthrie for the past two years. “I tried to get Arlo for the first Southern Shore Music Festival three years ago, but the dates hadn’t worked,” he said. “We talked about booking him last year and he was out of the country, so we sort of penciled him in in advance for ’09 and at the beginning of the year we confirmed. This is his only New Jersey show until the fall.” Guthrie, the son of singer-songwriter and folk icon Woody Guthrie, is a Brooklyn native who now makes his home in Massachusetts. Still, he’s no stranger to New Jersey. Over the years, he has performed throughout the state, including an appearance at Appel Farm in Elmer 10 years ago and in Cumberland County in 1991. “It took some time to get him for the Bridgeton Folk Festival,” said Rose of the event he first organized in the 1980s. “He kicked off the next decade for us. At that point, that was the biggest crowd we ever had.” At a 2006 festival performance broadcast by Scottish radio, Guthrie told the crowd that, as a kid, he answered the door one day and discovered a guy named Bob Dylan looking for Woody. He explained that, at that time, “my dad was down the road in a hospital” and that Dylan went to see him there. Guthrie said he visited his dad after that, but the truth is, he and his siblings had been visiting their father at Graystone Psychiatric Continued on page 20 Time in a Bottle Second grade teacher Mrs. Veronica Glogau and her class at Bishop Schad Regional School buried a time capsule last week. It included a class photo, a list of timely facts (President, favorite toys, TV shows, movies, songs, etc.), a school uniform, a Phillies poster from the World Series win, and what each student said he or she would like to be when grown up. The class made a date to return in 10 years to dig up the time capsule around the time they graduate from high school. I Nicholas Vicente, Janice Girone and Carly Mayhew lower the time capsule into the ground.

In this case, the family business is folk music. Guthrie headlines the Southern Shore Music Festival on Saturday night at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. Writer Vincent Farinaccio and Festival organizer Bob Rose discussed the fact that the festival takes place just a couple of months prior to the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Guthrie performed at that famous music festival and will likely reminisce about it with those who attend the Southern Shore Music Festival this weekend. *** In my May 27, 2009 editor’s letter, I wrote that Sid Brody was the oldest Jewish War veteran in Vineland. A couple of readers (including Brody) contacted me since then to point out that, while Brody certainly deserved the recognition he was given as grand marshal of the veteran’s motorcade preceding the Cumberland County Community Festival two weeks ago, he is in fact, too young (at 88) to be Vineland’s oldest Jewish War veteran. That unique honor belongs to Tom Lerner, 93, a veteran of World War II. I apologize to both Brody and Lerner for the error. *** While speaking with Sid Brody on the phone last week, he suggested that we publish a notice declaring the number of copies we distribute each week. He reasoned that many people (including current and potential advertisers) in Vineland probably are unaware of the fact that we mail The Grapevine to every residence in the City of Vineland, in addition to dozens of copies throughout the region and even to several other states. Who am I to argue with a businessman as successful as Brody has been?

I cannot believe how quickly time has passed me by this year. Maybe I’m getting old or maybe it’s just a function of having kids or the rat race of publishing a weekly newspaper, but it seems that we went from January to June in the blink of an eye. In any event, I’d be remiss not to mention my dear old dad in this space this week. As mentioned in my Mother’s Day column a few weeks ago, my mom and dad have been incredibly supportive of me (their names are even included in the staff list at right) since I started The Grapevine (as they’ve been throughout my life). My father has done everything from running errands, to selling ads, to his current gig—delivering copies of the newspapers to area businesses every Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks, Dad, for always being there when I needed you and for showing me how to be a good father to my own kids. Happy Father’s Day. 37 38 REAL ESTATE: MAY R.E.

EIN, MANAGING EDITOR } A Library of Ideas Summer reading starts now. kay, kids, you’ve just finished a year’s worth of required reading and book reports. Now it’s time to kick back and—no, not take a break—but read what you really want to read. If nothing leaps to mind, let the Vineland Public Library steer you in a direction. Registration began June 1 at the Library and the theme for the statewide Summer Reading Program this year is “Be Creative @ Your Library.” Tuesday, July 7, from 6 to 7 p.m. is the Colorful Kick-Off Party, where you may wear your favorite color, listen to stories, and enjoy colorful snacks. Registration is required, and the Family Fun Nights continue every Tuesday night through August 11 with a magician, an author/illustrator, a singalong, zoo animals, and storytelling on various nights. The Library will also host morning story- O times for the younger set (six months to 5) and afternoon reading clubs for ages 6 and up. Activities for various age groups include an American Girl Party, a Monster Party, Puppy Tales (kids read to therapy dogs), a Young Writers Club, and an Independent Reading Club. For teens, the theme at the Library this summer is “Express Yourself @ Your Library.” This can be accomplished through activities such as a read-a-thon (read for at least an hour and a half, and you will be able to join in a pizza party and receive a free book), making book trailers for Life as We Knew It and Twilight, creating your own comic strip (work alone or in pairs on Bitstrips.com), writing book reviews, being a reading buddy to a younger child, getting in on a book discussion (A Mango Shaped Space by Wendy Mass), even entering a teen writing contest. And here’s the best part—getting in on the Summer Reading Program at the Vineland Public Library is free. Most of the programs are funded by Friends of the Vineland Public Library. All you need to do is register, so if any of these activities interest you, call the Library at 794-4244, ext. 4246. Learn more about library programs and services from the library’s web page at www.vinelandlibrary.org Adults may add to their summer reading list the just-announced Cumberland County College One Book-One College 2009-10 selection of Strong Medicine Speaks: A Native American Elder Has Her Say by Amy Hill Hearth. A “must read” on campus, members of the community are also urged to read the book. The One Book-One College program is highlighted each year with an on-campus visit by the author. Hearth is set to visit CCC on November 4. According to a college press release, “Strong Medicine Speaks captures the voice of 85-year-old tribal elder Marion ‘Strong Medicine’ Gould as she looks back on her life as a Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indian. The oral history offers an inside look at contemporary Native American life …. The book came about when author Amy Hill Hearth learned that Read and Watch The Vineland Public Library (VPL) Children’s Department is partnering with Four Star Video to encourage children to read this summer. Children ages 3 to 12 who read five books from July 6 to August 14, and answer a few questions about the books they read (or were read to them) can receive a coupon for a free G or PG video or DVD rental from Four Star Video. Blank coupons will be available in the VPL Children’s Department on July 6. The coupons will be stamped for each book the child reads and discusses with a librarian. When children have five stamps, they can redeem the coupon at Four Star Video, at 2630 East Chestnut Avenue in Vineland. she had a female ancestor, born circa 1700, who was a member of the Lenni-Lenape tribe. Hearth set out to learn more about the tribe, eventually meeting Strong Medicine. With great care, the matriarch tells of her ancestry— tracing it back from 1524 when the once-powerful tribe first encountered the Europeans, through the strife and bloodshed of America’s early years, up to the 20th century.” For more information about the One Book-One College program at Cumberland County College, call 691-8600 ext. 358.

Just as the current influenza scare in the form of swine flu has a local precedent in the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, the recession we’ve been struggling through this year is a similar version of an economic crisis Vineland first experienced in the 1870s. It took Vineland founder Charles Landis several years to draw people to this area, bringing with them their business and agricultural skills to help shape the town he envisioned. By 1864, three years after it was founded, Vineland began to see an influx of settlers. Over the next eight years, businesses sprang forth in the center of town and Vineland soon began to forge its identity through what it manufactured, produced and sold. But 12 years into its existence, Vineland, along with the country, was threatened by what is commonly referred to today as the Panic of 1873. The date commonly given for the start of the panic and for what became known as The Long Depression is September 18, 1873. According to an H 18 -H o l e C o u r s e H a n d i c a p – A c c e ss i b l e October 2008 New York Times article comparing the current recession to that of its 19th century predecessor, Jay Cooke and Company, the prominent Philadelphia banking firm connected with the early stages of the Northern Pacific Railroad, suspended payments on notes it had issued, a prelude to its declaration of bankruptcy. The rail industry plays a significant role in the Panic of 1873. According to online sources, there were 35,000 miles of track laid in the United States in the first eight years after the Civil War. Always a risky business, the railroad was one of the biggest employers in the country. Just prior to September 18, the New York Times reported, “railroad and real estate speculation had been rampant and values had multiplied to unheard of heights.” It’s not surprising, then, that a grandscale project like the Northern Pacific Railroad would help trigger the economic panic of this period. Vineland’s investment in its own rail line exemplifies the difficulties in financing such a venture at this time. Unable to meet expenses, the Vineland Railway Company was sold at a considerable loss for its shareholders several months before the Panic of 1873.

By September 20, all trading was suspended on the New York Stock Exchange for the first time ever. The government decided to pour money on the wound by announcing it would buy what turned out to be a total of $13 million in bonds. When, the following year, Congress passed a bill that the New York Times reported “would allow for more printing of currency to spur inflation and reduce the real value of debts,” President Ulysses S. Grant vetoed it. Agriculture, another leading employer in the country and certainly a significant Vineland business, was another casualty Varicose Veins? Leg Swelling?

While B.F. Ladd’s History of Vineland discusses the record grape crop sales in 1871, the chronicle makes no mention of farm sales throughout the next few years. And only several new businesses, each described as thriving, are noted during these years. Frank Andrews, in the Vineland Historical Magazine, acknowledged that in this period of the city “the unprecedented growth of the preceding years had practically ceased and doubts were expressed.” Yet, just as today, Vineland probably didn’t have as bad an experience as other areas of the country, particularly major urban centers, which absorbed the brunt of the 14 percent unemployment rate by 1876. Ever vigilant of Vineland’s wellbeing, Landis undertook a trip to Europe in 1874 in order to entice more individuals to settle and work here. And soon, stability and growth returned, apparently ahead of most of the nation. The Long Depression, the New York Times claimed, took four years to conclude. According to Andrews, it seems that Vineland’s “long” depression lasted only two. I Specializing in spider and varicose vein treatment Please Call for appointment 856-309-VEIN (8346) Charles L.

DIR., VDID/MAIN STREET } Martini Shoes and Q-Ball Here’s two more reasons to be excited about downtown Vineland. T he businesses are the lifeblood of a downtown and I want to applaud two businesses that are now in the spotlight. As you read this, Martini Shoes, at 615 E. Landis Ave., will be awarded “Outstanding Business” status by the Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce at its annual President’s Gala on Thursday at Centerton Country Club. This is a fitting honor for one of this region’s oldest family-run businesses. Frank R. Martini, a cobbler from Italy, came to this country in 1920 and started to sell shoes out of his East Avenue home. His grandson, Frank S. Martini, with wife Lynn, are now in charge of a business that is still going strong! The business endured from those East Avenue days to its first Landis Avenue location in the old Baker House hotel. A fire in 1940 forced the elder Martini to relocate across the street, three doors down from its present location. Sons George F. and Harry J. Martini came into the business and it eventually moved into the building that formerly housed the F.W. Woolworth store, occupying half the bottom floor. That was 51 years ago and Martini Shoes has been in that location ever since. George Martini’s son and daughter-in-law still operate the business the old-fashioned way, with the customer as the priority. Through years of experience, they have knowledge of their product and of what their customers like. Lynn Martini is also an artist and the store is joining a growing number of downtown spots were the work of fine area artists and photographers can be seen and purchased. We congratulate and salute Martini Shoes for 89 years of a job well done! Q-Ball Billiards, at 133 W. Landis Avenue, is also in our spotlight. Those passing by the business will notice the building’s bright new exterior. Q-Ball was the third business to successfully complete the City of Vineland’s Façade Improvement program, in which more than 70 downtown businesses have enrolled. In recognition, Q-Ball joined the ranks of Sun National Bank and Bain’s Deli/Fuel House Coffee Co. as the latest recipient of a Charles K. Landis medallion from VDID/Main Street Vineland at a special ceremony. Congratulations to Q-Ball Billiards, another downtown fixture making Landis Avenue is a great place to shop or play. *** Make the 700 block of Landis Avenue your destination this weekend for the grand opening of this summer’s Fresh and Specialty Foods Market, which begins its fifth year. Presented by VDID/Main Street Vineland and sponsored again this year by Sun National Bank, the Market will run each Saturday (except July 4) until August 15, from 8 a.m. to noon. It will feature fresh fruits, vegetables, and other pro- duce, as well as flowers and crafts. We are excited to kick the Market off this week 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 giving useful information. Music and food, plus plenty of family-friendly activities including arts, crafts, and a variety of games and activities for children are also on tap. During Market hours, Miss Kathy—always a favorite with kids—also will be on hand. Also, you can cast your vote every week of the Market, 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 downtown revitalization. *** Thanks to all those who helped to make Cruise Down Memory Lane a success this past Saturday. *** For more information VDID/Main Street Vineland’s “endless summer” of events and activities, call 794-8653 or visit www.mainstreetvineland.org.

Pearl St. (Rt. 77), Bridgeton, NJ • (856) 451-0095 Home Garden and Avoiding Plumbing/ Heating/Cooling Problems Dirt. Five year olds love it, plants can’t live without it, and you’re breathing it in every day. Not just breathing it in—you’re paying to inhale the largest cause of your home’s dust and allergy problems. You’re probably thinking that’s an exaggeration, but the simple truth is that you are paying to run your heating and cooling system, more and more as the weather heats up. Since dirt is the number one cause of system failure—90 percent of all failures, in fact—chances are good that dirt is keeping your system from running at peak efficiency. Before you invest in a family set of gas masks or prepare for a nomadic existence in the Sahara (hey, at least then you won’t be paying for the dirt), you might want to give your heating and cooling professional a call. “Your system works hard,” says Vincent Crocilla Jr. of Pure Aire Professional Air Duct Cleaning. “It’s constantly circulating and cooling the air that keeps your family comfortable. Like anything else that works, it gets dirty and has to be cleaned.” There are a few questions to ask yourself before having your system cleaned: • How long has it been since your HVAC system was cleaned? • Are there pets in the home? • Does any family member experience burning in the eyes, nose, or throat while in the home? • Do any family members show symptoms of mild to severe allergies? Vincent Crocilla Jr. says: “System failures caused by dirt, as well as expensive repairs, can be avoided with a little preventative maintenance. Most people don’t realize how much money they can save by making sure their system runs efficiently.” Learning the precautions is part of Pure Aire’s effort to educate the public during “Appreciate Your Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Professional Week”, which is June 18-25. Pure Aire wants to show homeowners certain neglected maintenance items that can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs or system replacements. You can get your air duct system inspected by calling Pure Aire Professional Air Duct Cleaning at 856-205-9000.

Andreoli, County Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Cumberland County has announced that farmer and rancher candidate nominations begin June 15 for local Farm Service Agency (FSA) county committees. The nomination period continues through August 3. “We are counting on as much participation as possible, because county committees are an important link between the farm community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, “said Andreoli. “We have seen…increased nominations of minority and women producers and we hope that will continue.” FSA county committee members make decisions on disaster and conservation programs, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs and other important agricultural issues. Members serve three-year terms. To be eligible to serve, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate.

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. All prices are NES-SRP.

SUMMER PARTIES Four Tips for Great Backyard Bashes With a rainy start to summer, many people are scrambling to spend as many sunny days outdoors as they can. As a result, the backyard or outdoor party is about to hit its stride, especially with celebrations for dads and grads this month. Though outdoor parties are often informal affairs, there are a few things to consider before hitting the lawn and firing up the grill. 1. Arrange some activities for your guests. During an indoor affair you can simply dust off some board games or turn on a ballgame to entertain your guests. But when outside, especially if you have a lot of space, be it in the backyard or at the park, you’ll need to provide your guests with something more sufficient. Relaxed games such as horseshoes or badminton are typically popular fare for summer festivities, as they aren’t too competitive and won’t leave your guests sweating up a storm. Be sure to provide games that both adults and kids can enjoy. 2. Have lots of water on hand. When hosting a party indoors, water is Escape the heat in our air conditioned rooms!

Landis Avenue, Vineland not something you’ll likely need a large supply of once the party moves away from the dinner table. However, when the party heads outside, especially in the late summer months when the temperatures are often at their hottest, you’ll want to have enough water on hand to keep your guests refreshed and ensure no one dehydrates under the hot summer sun. 3. Have outdoor lighting ready to go. If the party is scheduled to start in the afternoon, don’t ensure that it will end prematurely when the sun goes down simply because you don’t have any lighting. If everyone is still enjoying themselves when the sun sets, you won’t want to see a good time come to a premature end. Tiki torches or candles of varying sizes are popular for summer parties because they create a relaxing atmosphere while providing sufficient light. If you’re hosting a party at a nearby picnic area, be sure to know what time the park or picnic area closes. You won’t want to be forced out just when everyone is settling down to eat their dinner. 4. Set aside a place for the pooches.

However, since dogs aren’t potty trained, it’s a good idea for hosts to designate an area for pets before the party starts to avoid anyone’s shoes finding a dog’s mess. If you have a fenced-in backyard, for instance, keep the dogs in the backyard if there’s ample room for them to run around and enjoy themselves. If you can’t guarantee that dogs will do their duty in an area away from your human guests, have cleanup materials on-hand so no one’s shoes need replacing by the end of the night.

A photo of a young Arlo with his father and sister, Nora, taken in 1960 on the institution’s grounds and published in a 2003 edition of the local cult magazine Weird N.J. attests to that. Woody Guthrie was a victim of Huntington’s dis- He continues to play with a group that has included his son Abe on keyboards, grandson Krishna on drums and granddaughter Sarah Lee on vocals. ease, and today his son’s non-profit Guthrie Center battles the affliction through walk-a-thons that help raise awareness of the disease and funding to discover a cure. Guthrie first achieved recognition in 1967 for “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” his 18-minute talking blues about a reallife 1965 Thanksgiving dinner gone awry when a littering incident turns into a humorous account of military worthiness during the Vietnam War era. While the song existed in both a shorter non-political performance version in 1966 and a revised live rendition known as “Alice’s Restaurant and the Rainbow Roach Affair,” audiences still celebrate the officially released track found on Guthrie’s debut album. Philadelphia radio station WXPN, in a tradition observed by a number of U.S. FM stations, ritually broadcasts the track in its noon timeslot on Thanksgiving Day. A film version of the song, starring its composer, was directed by Arthur Penn in 1969, the same year Guthrie performed on the opening night of the Woodstock Festival. Rose acknowledges that the timing for Guthrie’s appearance here this year is significant. “It’s the 40th anniversary of Woodstock,” he said. “There’s no better person to have than someone who played there. He’s a ’60s icon. When you think of the ’60s and the movement in the ’60s, Arlo Guthrie was there in the beginning. And he’s continued the legacy started by his father, Woody, obviously. Also, there’s Some of the Guthrie touring crew—Killer Bramer, Jody Lampro, Jeannie Burns, Arlo, Marie Burns, son Abe Guthrie, and Annie Burns. the fact that his connection with Steve Goodman, who played the first Bridgeton Folk Festival, is so strong.” In 1972, Guthrie recorded Goodman’s tribute to the fading glory of the railroad, “City of New Orleans,” for his album Hobo’s Lullaby. The tune, with an infectious chorus that greets and inquires after the country through which its verses travel, (“Good morning, America, how are ya?”), propelled him into the charts and the song has remained a staple of Guthrie’s sets throughout the years. Guthrie has recorded three albums with his father’s former sidekick, Pete Seeger, the first, Together in Concert, in 1975, Precious Friend in 1981 and 1994’s More Together Again. Seeger’s name has been back in the limelight lately with Bruce Springsteen’s CD release and tour of the Stay Cool This Summer Join The YMCA Summer Camp Programs & Summer Enrichment June 22 – August 28 SJ EXCEL FOOTBALL CAMP Skills Day Camp Mon.-Thurs., June 22 to 25 Youth Camp Ages 6-13, Grades 1st-8th $120 before June 15th $140 After Prep Camp Ages 14-18, Grades 9th-12th $140 before June 15th $160 After FEDERAL CREDIT UNION Worldwide Convenience • Personal Attention Facility Membership • Stay cool working out in our new air conditioned Family Fitness Center, Free Weight room and gymnasium and swim in our pool • Interest free monthly Bank draft 25 – 50 % off Joining fees through June 25th • Pay in full–no Joining fee & get 13th month for no additional fee! • Ages 18 months – 15 years • 10 – 1 week sessions • Licensed camp and child care provider w/ trained, screened and experienced staff • Serving campers for over 60 years • Added Value—end your camp week with Saturday gym and pool use 2 -4pm for camper and their parent(s) { 20 } the grapevine | JUNE 17, 2009 Savings Home Equity Checking VISA Credit Cards Auto Loans VISA Check Cards Personal Loans Online Banking Plus Much More!

When Seeger celebrated his 90th birthday last month at a concert celebration at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Guthrie was there, joining other performers in renditions of “Oh Mary, Don’t You Weep,” “Takes a Worried Man to Sing a Worried Song” and “Victory Song/Precious Friend.” As he did 41 years earlier at New York’s Carnegie Hall when he shared the stage with the likes of Dylan, the Band and Odetta in a posthumous tribute to his father, Guthrie honors his forbearers in both his understanding and execution of the material. This week he will do it once again when he appears at a tribute for singer Theodore Bikel. For a number of years, Guthrie performed with his backing band Shenandoah. While he recently returned to solo performances, as with his 20062007 tours, he continues to play with a group of musicians that has included his son Abe on keyboards as well as his grandson Krishna on drums and his granddaughter Sarah Lee on vocals. Recent sets include traditional classics like “St. James Infirmary,” selections from his dad’s songbook like “Pretty Boy Floyd” and the anthemic “This Land is Your Land” as well as his own compositions, such as “The Motorcycle Song” and “Coming Into Los Angeles.” “He’s one of the most well-known troubadours in the world,” Rose said. “He’s a down-to-earth person, a great performer and he has a rapport with the audience. His stories mean as much to the audience as some of his songs.” Rose is hoping this year’s festival will draw 1,500 people. He said attendance for the first Southern Shore Music Festival two years ago was 700 and that last year’s totaled around 1,000. In addition to Guthrie, this Saturday’s lineup will also feature Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Bonerama, Hoots and Helmouth, Eilen Jewell, Nora Whittaker, 61 North and Nik Everett.

I had heard about this barbeque before, as it’s a McClennen family favorite. The other barbeque that got my attention was the one put on by the Dorothy Fire Hall. Of course, they were both held on the same day last weekend, so I was in for a lot of chicken that day. Forest Grove started serving at noon, so Jill and I got there at about 12:15 and encountered a long line of people, all patiently waiting for two things—some tasty chicken and the legendary potato salad. For as long as it was, the line shuffled along rather quickly. It was hot out that day, so it was a relief when our section of line moved inside, out of the sun. Ahead, I could see the end of the line and into the kitchen area, where a dozen or so { STEPHEN WILSON / PHOTOS: JILL McCLENNEN } Best Chicken Barbeque It was a toss-up between Forest Grove Fire Department Dorothy Fire Hall. T people were swiftly and efficiently preparing the plates. Jill, who had gone off to take pictures while I waited in line, reappeared from a side door trailing Tom, a man in rubber boots. She had a big smile on her beautiful face, and she thanked Tom for showing her around. She snapped a few pictures of the people working in the kitchen and then began to tell me about the scene she had witnessed behind the fire hall. Long cinderblock fire pits had been built behind the fire hall for the sole purpose of the annual chicken barbeque. In the pits were the burning embers of charcoal, glowing with pure heat and sending off plumes of bluish smoke. As the smoke wafted skyward, it encountered hundreds of chickens and infused them with a smoky flavor. The chickens had been halved and placed into flat, pallet-sized cages that filled with a single layer of chicken. As the birds cooked, two burly men on each side were blackened from use. A long line of of the pit flipped the chicken cages to these cages sat over the coals, each one ensure that they cooked evenly and on both sides. The men made their way down the pit, flipping one cage after another. After being cooked on both sides, the chickens were then sauced with the homemade barbeque sauce and finished over the hot coals. It was very hot, and the air was thick with smoke, so I commend the guys who were working the fires. When the chickens were done cooking, they were put onto plates and moved inside, where a small army of folks put lettuce, potato salad, tomatoes and pickles on the plate. A giant Kaiser roll on top finished the platter, and the plates were then placed into brown paper bags. Some people brought cardboard boxes to put their platters into, although we only got one platter. I gave a woman my ticket, and the gentleman standing next to her passed me a bag. All in all, it was a very smooth transaction considering all the food that was being produced. In the foyer area, Newfield Library was holding a bake sale in conjunction with the barbeque to raise money for the operations of the library, and the standard bake sale goodies were available.

The layout was similar, the fire pits and saucing looked just about the same, but the whole affair had more of a party atmosphere. There were games and a hayride for the kids, and beer and clams for the grown-ups. Many people were eating their chicken and licking their fingers while sitting at one of the dozens of faded red picnic tables. Jill and I sat and ate the Dorothy platter, which came with corn, potato salad, and pickles… it was excellent. The chicken had a nice smoky flavor, and we left satisfied. We then went home to eat the platter from Forest Grove. It was still warm, and I went right for the legendary potato salad, which did not disappoint. I’m kind of picky with my potato salad, but this really was worth the hype. I was told that about 1,800 pounds of potatoes were cooked this year, and it was all prepared from scratch by volunteers who started making the salad on Friday evening at midnight, and who worked in rotating shifts. The chicken was great as well; it was juicy and with a hint of smoke. The skin was wonderfully salty, and we definitely enjoyed everything on the platter. Both chicken barbeques of the day were well worth it. Congratulations to Forest Grove chicken barbeque! I can’t wait until next year… I Stephen Wilson along with his wife Jill McClennen owns The Sweet Life Bakery. You may contact him via e-mail at thesweetlifebakery@verizon.net.

When I received the recipe printed in today’s column, it got me to thinking—I have never actually tried risotto. Can you imagine, being Italian and not ever tasting risotto! I guess it’s because that’s one dish I never saw the elders in my family make. I have seen many different recipes for it, and even watched food TV hosts prepare it. However, it’s one dish I’ve yet to cook. But that’s all about to change, I’m planning on making a healthy version of risotto very soon. So thank you Mr. DeSanto. By sharing your recipe with us, it has given me the nudge I needed to give risotto a try. I hope other readers will too! Also, don’t forget that Father’s Day is this coming Sunday, and it’s the perfect time to make your Pop a special meal or favorite dessert! I’d like to wish my dad a Happy Father’s Day, too. I appreciate and love ya, Dad! The following recipe and story is shared by Bob De Santo, who writes: “Hi Lisa, I read your feature regularly. I thought you and your readers might be interested in my recipe. It is not only ‘heart-healthy’ but quite tasty! Shrimp or chicken may be added if desired.” of broth, add peas and another ladle of broth. Stir until broth is absorbed and keep adding and stirring ladles of broth. Approximately 10 minutes from adding peas, add basil and lemon rinds. For about 5 minutes more, add broth and stir constantly, remove pan from heat and allow risotto to “simmer” for 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately thereafter. Notes from Bob: * Texture of risotto will be soft. If “al dente” is preferred, add peas at 13-15 minutes, and follow remainder of instructions, sample taste for desired texture. * Heart-healthy recipe requires low-sodium broth with no butter, cheese or cream added as is traditionally done in many risotto recipes. As always, Bon Appetit. I Lisa Ann is the author of Seasoned With Love, Treasured Recipes and Lisa Ann’s Seasoned With Love II.

Delsea Dr., Suite 7) on May 9, and the winning mother/ daughter was Judy and Kristen Pszwaro of Pittsgrove. The prize was a free makeover for each by MiMi & Kelse’s, plus to-andfrom limo ride starting at MiMi & Kelsey’s to Merighi’s Savoy Inn for dinner and drinks. The limousine was provided free from Touch of Class Limousines and Merighi’s Savoy Inn gave the winners up to $75 free food and drink. The makeover and trip was photographed by Flash & Co. and the winners received a free photo history of their adventure. Judy Pszwaro’s hair color was changed to a red brown rich color, sun kissed with peekaboo foils. Her new cut is a razored layer with a stacked back for volume. Daughter Kristin’s hair color was transformed to a rich chocolate brown base with lots of sunkist foils of blonde, red and caramel. Her new cut flatters her fine natural contours. It’s not often that four diverse businesses can so easily and completely cooperate and join together in providing a free special event. What better reason than to honor our mothers and daughters together. Watch for MiMi & Kelsey’s next makeover drawing in August. The four participating businesses: • MiMi & Kelsey’s, 825 S. Delsea Dr. • Touch of Class Limousines Service, 881 S. Main Rd. • Merighi’s Savoy Inn, E. Landis Ave. • Flash & Co., 815 E.

Over the years, the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society has acquired many old-time images. Kate Harbold, at the Society, is busy cataloging the photos from Vineland’s rich past, but she needs the help of The Grapevine readers in identifying the people and places captured on film so long ago. Every week or couple of weeks, we will publish a photograph. It might be a person, or a group of people, or a building, or an event. If you know something about the photo, we ask that you contact either Harbold at the Society or use the contact information on page 4 to inform us. The mission of the VHAS is to acquire, maintain, and preserve Vineland’s history. The Society was founded in 1864, just three years after the establishment of the town of Vineland. It is the second oldest historical society in New Jersey, second only to the New Jersey Historical Society. The VHAS consists of a museum, library, and archives, open to the public on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m., same hours Tuesday through Friday for research. It is located at 108 South Second Street, Vineland (691-1111).

I Civic Engagement { LEE BURKE } Transportation Futures The Planning Board approves a Master Plan circulation element that provides a comprehensive review of all modes of transportation within the City of Vineland. epresentatives of OrthRodgers & Associates and Nelson/ Nygaard, transportation and engineering consultants, presented their analysis and recommendations to the Planning Board at its June 10 meeting. The report, which was funded by the South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO), covered a six-month study of the city’s transportation needs. The last transportation study was done 17 years ago and was part of the 1992 master plan. The new plan emphasizes safety and efficiency of all motorized and nonmotorized transportation modes: • vehicular (automobile and trucking), • pedestrian, • bicycle, and • transit (including bus and passenger rail). The report also referred to the 2002 SJTPO and New Jersey Transit South Jersey Regional Rail Study, which evaluated the potential for restoring passenger service. Four corridors were included, with the Glassboro to Vineland-Millville service determined to be the most feasible. In February, 2009, the New Jersey Office of Smart Growth released a report entitled “Analysis of South Jersey Rail Expansion Alternatives.” The Office analyzed the rail expansion options that concluded the alternatives running along the existing freight line R connections to Vineland stood out as “most closely aligning with State Plan Principles.” Further, the report stated, “A line that serves small communities while also providing park-and-ride services at select stations would provide greater benefits to the citizens of the region and to the service provider.” In May, 2009, Governor Corzine announced support for plans to expand diesel light rail service from Camden to Glassboro and for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Routes 42 and 55 as well as improvements to the NJ Transit Atlantic City rail line. The Orth-Rodgers report contains a specific recommendation: To maximize the economic development benefits of rail passenger service, and support the smart growth strategy of encouraging development in existing centers, the City should support and lobby for alignment proposals that incorporate the existing freight lines, rather that those proposing a NJ 55 alignment. A Vineland station stop should be located in Downtown to encourage infill and redevelopment, and support Vineland’s vision of being a walkable community. City Engineer Brian Myers noted that the section of Circulation Element dealing with the safety of the roadway system, particularly at identified problem areas, is being addressed. He referred to the intersections of Oak Road and West Avenue, Park and West avenues, and Wheat Road and East Avenue as ones on which the City has already begun its traffic analysis to reduce the relatively high number of angle vehicular crashes. The report also identified the Landis Avenue (Route 56) and Mill Road intersection as having the highest number of crashes of any intersection in the City. A Vineland station stop should be located in Downtown to encourage infill and redevelopment, and support Vineland’s vision of being a walkable community.

Concurrent with the Master Plan Circulation Element report, the City has issued a Request for Qualifications/ Proposal (RFQ/P) for a Parking, Circulation and Landscaping Strategy for the downtown redevelopment district. The City believes its parking and landscaping affect not just its transportation and appearance, but its economic vitality and quality of life. Eleven proposals are under review by the offices of redevelopment, planning and engineering for recommended solutions that ensure economic return while supporting broad community and development goals.
