ive emphatic and divergent opinions were
expressed last week on the burning public
question of who would make the best mayor of
Vineland for the next four years. One view was present-
ed by each of the candidates to an audience of several
hundred in a debate at the Landis Theater sponsored by
the Vineland Chamber of Commerce and The Daily
Journal and moderated by Mary Conley, president of
the Cape May County League of Women Voters.
In the first municipal election for mayor and council
held on the traditional Election Day (November 6 this
year), incumbent mayor Robert Romano is seeking a sec-
ond term, challenged by former two-term mayor Perry
Barse, current city council member Douglas Albrecht,
former city council president Ruben Bermudez, and
labor and political activist David Mazur.

here are a lot of things in life
that defy explanations: The pop-
ularity of rap music and the suc-
cess of “Jersey Shore” are two
that come immediately to mind.
Maybe that’s just my advanced years
talking, but there are plenty of other things
going on that just don’t seem to make any
sense.
For instance: The other night I saw a
Toyota commercial where a young lady
was essentially telling the audience that
buying a Toyota was a very American thing
to do. The commercial actually ends with
the Star Spangled Banner and the young
lady standing with her hand over her heart.
Huh? Am I missing something?
I know some Toyotas are made in
America, but that doesn’t make them an
American company.
Chrysler, which is owned by Fiat, an
Italian auto maker, runs some pretty slick
commercials that tout the fact that Chrysler
products are “imported from Detroit.”
That’s actually pretty clever.
To me, the Toyota ad is just offensive.
Something else that’s hard for me to
understand is why we are sitting by while
these third-world countries attack our for-
eign embassies.
It all started on this year’s anniversary
of 9-11—no coincidence, obviously—when
an Internet movie mocking the Islamic
prophet, Muhammad, went viral.
The Islamic religion prohibits the
depiction of Muhammad in any manner, so
the video of a hard-drinking, womanizing
Muhammad set a number of people off.
As a Christian, I suppose I’d be upset
with a video that portrayed Jesus Christ in
that manner.
But, here’s the difference: there’s no way
our government, at any level, would allow
attacks on foreign embassies on our soil.
Embassies, by international treaty, are
considered part of the nation they represent.
For instance, if you visit the French
embassy in New York, you are, legally, on
French soil.
Makes sense, when you think about it,
because diplomats are really any nation’s
first line of defense: talking is always better
than dropping bombs or invading.
Here’s what I don’t understand.
Those foreign attacks on our embassies
started this past 9-11 and they haven’t stopped.
Why is that?
Is it because the foreign governments
can’t control the populace or is it because
they don’t want to?
In the meantime, Americans are still
being killed and we’re still mailing out for-
eign aid checks to these countries.
Seriously, I wish someone would
explain it to me.
Maybe it all has to do with the “global
economy,” or our “dependence on foreign oil.”
The people who do know aren’t talking:
or, at least, they’re not making any sense
when they do.
Here’s what I do know: when there’s a
dog in the neighborhood that’s biting peo-
ple you don’t put out treats for it.
Common sense government:
• Close our embassies in any nation
where they are threatened
• Close their embassies here
• Stop sending them money
If none of the above work, then you
start humming the Marine hymn: you
know the one about “the shores of Tripoli”
and “fighting our country’s battles.”
That first lyric refers to our involvement
in the First Barbary War in the early 1800s.
One hundred years later, Teddy
Roosevelt said we should “walk softly but
carry a big stick” about that same part of
the world.
The only part of that quote that our
present leaders seem to remember is the
“walk softly” part.
For me, I’m proud to be an American
and I’m sick and tired of people bullying us
simply because we won’t fight back.
••••••
A couple of happy notes: First, kudos to
Millville’s Mike Trout, for giving me a rea-
son—other than the Phillies—to watch
baseball this past season.
Second, and I’ve mentioned this before,
the best show on TV is back. The History
Channel opened the second season of
“How the States Got Their Shapes” this
past Sunday at 10 pm.
I’m sure they’ll rerun them during the
week.
This excellent show is absolutely worth
looking for. I

In Memoriam
Emeterio “Tellito” Bermudez
3/1/28 – 9/27/10
You’re still our little man with a big
heart.
It seems like yesterday you were
here;
It seems like yesterday your pres-
ence was near.
God gave us the privilege of calling
you father;
You were there for us in times of
trouble.
Words can’t express our pain and
our tears,
For we were there as we comfort
your fears
As we saw in your eyes all your
thoughts and your tears
Knowing you were leaving your wife
of so many years.
You will forever hold a place in our
heart;
It doesn’t matter how long we’re
apart.
The day will come when we will see
you face to face,
As our Father walks with us while we
embrace.
For now Daddy we can only hold you
in our heart,
As you lovingly watch us from afar.
So today we reiterate as we patiently
anticipate,
Seeing you father as we cross the
gate.
You are still our little man with a big
heart,
For soon enough to never be apart.
As we laid you to rest, covered your
grave with sod,
We knew that you were heaven
bound to touch the face of God.
Forever in our heart
Your wife and children

In Loving Memory
of Ken Andaloro, who passed away
one year ago, October 2, 2011
We little knew that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
the day god called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

years, more than 7,200 dictionaries have been hand-delivered by Rotarians to area third
graders. This annual dictionary donation is one of more than 15 local programs/organiza-
tions sponsored by the Rotary Club of Vineland. Distributed to some 1,000 third graders
in more than 40 classrooms across Vineland-area public and private schools each year,
the dictionaries are a gift from the Rotary Club of Vineland.

Habitat for Humanity’s 2012 Volunteer
Appreciation Celebration
The Cumberland
County Habitat for
Humanity’s 2012
Volunteer
Appreciation
Celebration, held
earlier this year at
Greenview Inn at
Eastlyn Golf, was all
about honoring and
celebrating the vol-
unteers at the local
chapter of Habitat
for Humanity.
Century Savings
Bank was the
Corporate Volunteer of the Year, recognized for their immutable support and gra-
cious contributions. In the spirit of their commitment to the community, Century
Savings Bank has made a $45,000 commitment to the mission of CCHFH.
In addition to acknowledging and thanking Century Savings, the Volunteer
Appreciation Celebration singled out two dedicated volunteers to be named
Volunteers of the Year. These were Michael Tirrell and Bernadette Santini.
Michael Tirrell began volunteering with Cumberland County Habit in 1997,
beginning at first as a licensed plumber looking to lend a hand. Soon, Tirrell was
recruited to serve as Treasurer to the Board of Directors, a position he held for 11
years. Today, Michael serves as an at-the-ready volunteer, and has most recently
assisted in the completion of his 15th Habitat home.
Bernadette Santini began volunteering with Habitat when her husband, Joe
Santini, took on the responsibility of CCHFH’s Project Manager. Bernadette
quickly and easily embraced the mission as well, and began joining Joe and
other volunteers of the jobsite on a regular basis. A nurse by trade for over 20
years, Bernadette is just as impressive on the jobsites, where she can be found
painting, laying tile, maintaining site safety—you name it. Bernadette is also
involved with the P.T.O. at the three schools of each of her children, and volun-
teers as a youth group leader for the St. Padre Pio Youth Group.
The final award of the night, the Richard Baum Lifetime Achievement Award,
was presented to former CCHFH President, Carolos A. Mercado, Jr. A lifelong
Vineland resident, Mercado oversaw the construction and completion of six
Habitat homes in Cumberland County during his tenure as President of the
Board of Directors. Numerous community and civic groups have recognized
Carlos for his efforts—the Vineland Fire Department Firefighter of the Year and
the Spanish American Relief Fund Outstanding Volunteer Award, to name a few—
and Habitat is happy to add another accolade to his already impressive list.

PRIMARY CARE PLUS
Comprehensive family care and wellness planning
that connects your doctor, hospitals and specialists.
This year a suspected flu canceled Joe and Eileen’s anniversary
trip to Cape May. Instead they went to AtlantiCare’s Primary Care
Plus, where his new primary care physician heard some alarming
heart sounds. He immediately referred Joe to the Heart Institute at
AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. Tests revealed a serious valve
condition that could’ve killed Joe at any moment. Just 8 weeks after
Joe’s open-heart surgery, he and Eileen have returned to the place
where their love story began. And they credit AtlantiCare’s seamless
integration of primary and specialty care, plus the region’s 5-star
heart surgeons, for making this next chapter possible.

Boys & Girls Club
Members Go Kayaking
A number of members from the Boys
& Girls Club of Vineland enjoyed a day
of kayaking on Union Lake in Millville
thanks to Steve Eisenhauer of the
Natural Lands Trust. For most of the
youth that participated in the field trip,
it was their first try at kayaking and they
had a wonderful time. The Natural
Lands Trust is the region's largest con-
servation organization dedicated to sav-
ing land, stewarding natural resources
and connecting people to nature.
Happy 57th
Birthday Dad!
We miss your illuminating

News in Brief I
VMEU Rate Decrease in Fuel
Adjustment Charge
Vineland Municipal Electric Utility
announces its second rate decrease in the
fuel adjustment charge within the last four
months.
This reduction will be .5¢/kWh for both
winter and summer rates and will take
effect on October 1, 2012.
The average monthly cost for a residen-
tial customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours
per month will now be $135.98 per month.
The rate decrease is the result of the
start of operations this summer of our new
generating unit, Down 11. The unit had a
significant impact in reducing VMEU’s
summer peak power cost.
The reduction will make VMEU’s rates
for the average 1,000 kWh/per month cus-
tomer the lowest in New Jersey.
“I would like to express my sincere
thanks to all VMEU and other city employ-
ees who worked extremely hard to achieve
this very impressive goal,” said Joseph
Isabella, Director of Vineland Municipal
Utilities.
“Our goal is to continue to re-tool the
electric utility while reducing costs to our
citizens and businesses,” said Mayor
Robert Romano. “We have been able to
reduce rates four times over the last four
years and our plan is to continue that trend.
The resultant savings represents an average
of almost $380/year lower energy costs for
our citizens compared to the electric rates
in effect in June, 2008. This represents
almost $16.5 million per year going to our
local economy rather than into the hands of
greedy energy suppliers,” said Mayor
Romano.
Vineland Municipal Electric Utility cur-
rently provides service to 21,696 residential
and 3,335 commercial and industrial cus-
tomers.
CompleteCare Helps
Register Voters
In an effort to ensure that all eligible
voters have the opportunity to cast their
ballot in the upcoming election, the
CompleteCare Health Network will have
voter registration forms available for all
patients. Voter registration will take place
at five of their community based health
centers from now until October 12.
“At CompleteCare we see the barriers
that many of our patients must overcome to
receive health care,” said Curtis Edwards,
VP of Community Services & Gov’t
Relations at CompleteCare. “It is these
same barriers—language, misinformation,
lack of transportation—that often gets in
the way of registering to vote.”
Registration forms are available at the
front desk at the following CompleteCare
locations:
—70 Cohansey Street, Bridgeton
—1200 North High Street, Millville

World Vision's Knit for Kids
Project a Success
The photo shows some of the donated
and crocheted items donated by
Cumberland County Library staff and
patrons for the World Vision’s Knit for Kids
project. Library employee Gina Allewelt
would like to thank all who participated in
this charity event.
Knit for Kids is a nationwide family of
28,000 volunteer knitters who fight pover-
ty with their knitting needles. The dona-
tions will provide warmth and comfort to
children in need across the nation and
around the world. Last year, World Vision
distributed more than 66,000 knitted items
to children in poverty.
There were over 100 items collected and
sent to the VOGUELive event in Chicago
where novelist and chairperson for the
event, Debbie Macomber, will receive them
for distribution. Macomber is an avid knit-
ter, has her own yarn store, and line of yarn.
Her publisher Random House is releasing
Angels at the Table, her new novel about
her angels Shirley Goodness and Mercy.
The Cumberland County Library will have
this new book available when it is released
in this fall. I

Monillas in 2013 National
Merit Scholarship Program
Sacred Heart High School’s Head of
School, Dr. Albert Monillas, announced
today that Kimberly Sansalone has been

About 34,000 Commended Students

“Recognizing academically talented
students plays a fundamental role in the
advancement of educational excellence
within our nation,” commented an NMSC
spokesperson. “The young people recog-
nized as Commended Students represent
some of the best and brightest minds in
the country as demonstrated by their out-
standing performance in our highly com-
petitive program. We sincerely hope this
recognition will provide them with addi-
tional educational outlets and motivate
them in their pursuit of academic achieve-
ment.”

Music to Their Ears—and Eyes, Too
St. Mary School is quite proud
of our students’ academic achieve-
ments and today, we have cause to
celebrate. One of our 7th grade
students, Luke Henry has won the
American Recorder Magazine
(ARS) Cover Art Contest. His win-
ning artwork is featured on the
cover of the September 2012 mag-
azine.
The ARS held its second
Student Cover Art Contest.
Creative entries were received
from eight different schools
throughout California, Delaware,
Georgia, Massachusetts, New
Jersey, North Carolina and Utah.
From the 120 pieces of artwork
submitted, six finalists were cho-
sen by a panel of art judges. Three
of those six finalists came from St.
Mary School. They were Luke
Henry, Rucha Shah and Tumelo Nwanma. The contest was part of a music
appreciation assignment given by St. Mary’s music teacher, Miss Kit Stout.
This is a perfect example of how St. Mary School is putting minds to work
through music and art. If you would like to find out more about St. Mary
School, feel free to contact Mrs. Carol Kirchman at 856-692-8537 x 320.

I
used to love the Little Rascals car-
toons. Actually, I still love them and
will stop to watch if I come across
them while channel-surfing.
I have so many fond memories of that
show and its characters. I still laugh at the
episode when they baked a birthday cake
and filled it with all kinds of strange
things such as a hot water bottle and a
mouse trap, which, of course, got caught
on someone’s tongue. I remember when
the kids glued to the floor an unruly baby
they were watching. And I used to howl
when the tops of Stymie’s ears would
twitch when he was alarmed by some-
thing, like when he was flying down a
steep hill in a soap box derby car.
Downtown Vineland will return to the
days of the Little Rascals on Sunday,
October 14 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., when we
hold our Sixth Annual Family Soap Box
Derby at Fourth Street and Landis
Avenue.
Derby participants must be between
ages six and 17, and can either build their
own cars at home, purchase a kit through
Main Street Vineland, or drive a Main
Street Vineland car at no additional cost.
The derby is free for spectators, but an
entrance fee is required for racers, which
includes race day refreshments, participa-
tion ribbon, and awards for winning racers.
Driver registration forms as well as car
sponsorship forms and car specifications
are available on the Main Street Vineland
website—www.mainstreetvineland.org.
Links to the forms can be found under the
Soap Box Derby on the Calendar of Events
page. The deadline for registration is
Wednesday, October 10.
This great event, sponsored by Ace
Plumbing, Heating & Electrical Supplies,
Inc., is always one of the highlights of our
year at Main Street Vineland, as children
and their families come together for an
afternoon of fun and good-hearted
competition.

MARY CONSALO GRUCCIO, daughter of
William Consalo and Mildred Consalo is one
of four daughters. Her parents raised their
four daughters as a farming family that now
operates a produce business in Vineland.
Mary Gruccio has been a resident of
Cumberland County for the past 43 years. In
1981, Mary married Michael Gruccio.
Together they had two children, Lauren
Marie and William Michael. Mary also enjoys
a special relationship with her stepdaughter,
Stephanie, her son-in-law Fred and her twin
granddaughters, Madeline and Amelia.
Mary began her career in 1975 as a teacher
in the
Vineland
Public School
District. Then,
she pursued a
Masters
Degree in
Urban
Education and
Community
Affairs,
Administrative
Certifications in Student Personnel Services,
Supervision, Principal, Chief School
Administrator and a Doctorate in Educational
Leadership. In 1988, Mary was appointed an
elementary school principal until she was
appointed Assistant Superintendent of
Curriculum and Instruction in 2005. This
past July, Mary was appointed
Superintendent of Schools. All 37 years of her
educational career have been in the Vineland
Public Schools where she attended through
graduation. Mary has always believed in giv-
ing back to her community and is an active
participant in many organizations.
One of the organizations Mary is most pas-
sionate about is The American Cancer
Society. While pregnant with her son, Mary
was diagnosed with cervical cancer, which
resulted in surgery and Cesarean section
weeks prior to her due date. Soon after, her
husband was diagnosed with colon cancer to
which he lost his battle 15 months later. Mary
uses her experience with cancer to help oth-
ers and to make a positive difference for those
in our community.
Mary’s grandparents, William and Louise
Consalo and Peter and Carmella Brigandi as
well as her mother and father were of Italian
descent and always instilled in their children
a desire to be proud Americans, but also to
never forget their heritage. Her mother
speaks Italian fluently, and her parents always
celebrated traditions and foods of the Italian
culture with their children. Mary continues
the same with her children. Faith, family and
Italian traditions are at the core of their lives.
IN 1956, LENNY GAGLIARDI’S grandfa-
ther Charles Terranova, was persuaded to
give up a dangerous job with the Jersey
Central Railroad and move to from Brooklyn,
NY to Vineland. His two sons and eldest
daughter, already living in Vineland, persuad-
ed his grandfather to leave his job and dan-
gers of the city, pack up his wife, youngest
daughter, (Lenny’s mother) and son for the
move to New Jersey. As luck would have it,
they moved in a house on Almond Street,
which had a view into the backyard of a
house on Cherry Street. From there, Vita
Terranova could spy on a young man who
would eventually be his son-in-law and
Lenny’s father. Who would have imagined
that his father would fall in love with this
Brooklyn girl and eventually marry and have
three children.
Lenny Gagliardi grew up in East Vineland
but center city was where he loved to be.
Center city was filled with family. Within two
blocks of his grandparents, nine familys of rel-
atives resided. You could always smell a fresh
pot of sauce cooking, bread baking or fresh
fried dough. That was really his home. While
in high school, Lenny loved playing football
and wrestling. He also coached midget league
football and Little League baseball.
After graduating from Vineland High
School in 1980, Lenny went to work for his
father driving a tractor-trailer and hauling
sand for Vineland Transit Mix. He attended
Cumberland County College in 1982 and then
transferred to Stockton State College, where
he studied for three years. In 1987 Lenny and
his partner Gino Ciancaglini started their own
business, Tri-State Masonry, currently known
as Tri-State Construction Inc. The company
has continued to thrive for more than 25
years.
The company has completed several major
projects throughout New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, and Delaware including: The
Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, The
University of Pennsylvania Hospital, The new
Philly Live Complex, as well as South Jersey
Regional Hospital and the recently completed
reconstruction
of Cape May
Convention
Hall. As well,
the company
has impacted
many other
construction
projects
throughout
the tri-state
area.
Lenny is actively involved in the business
community as a voting member of the
American Concrete Institute, a member of the
American Society of Concrete Contractors,
and Partner and Board Chairman of Jersey
Panel Corporation and Baruffi Bros.
Incorporated. He is also active in a number of
civic organizations such as The North Italy
Club and the Italian American Benevolent
Association.
Lenny is married to Kim (Caregnato)
Gagliardi and together they have three grown
children: Karly, Kyle, and Kassidy. He and his
partner Gino are well known for sponsoring
the famous tailgate parties at the Eagles games
and the annual Godfather party. Lenny simply
enjoys spending time with family and friends
over a good glass of wine. {

BORN IN VINELAND TO parents Enrico and
Maria (DeNovellis) Ciancaglini, Gino’s life was
far from easy. Working from the early age of 12
to provide for his “wants,” explains his lifelong
work ethic. What Gino’s family lacked in
financial success, they make up for with their
strong Italian family values and traditions.
Gino’s father, Enrico immigrated from
Scerni, Italy in 1959 at the age of 23. With
only a limited education, he gained employ-
ment at his uncle’s clothing shop as a tailor
and continued in that profession throughout
his life. Gino’s
mother, Maria
immigrated
from a small
town in
Abruzzi called
Santo
Tomasso, prov-
idence of
Pescare, at the
age of 18 and
also found
employment in a clothing factory. Both came
to America with a strong desire for a better
life and with the hope of greater opportunity,
not just for themselves but their family, which
grew by three boys, Anthony, Gino and Enio.
One extravagance that Gino’s parents
bestowed on their children was to send them
to Saint Mary’s Catholic Grammar School.
Gino did not play sports while attending
Vineland High so that he could maintain a job
and income. That work ethic afforded him the
possibility to attend college.
Gino graduated from Vineland High
School in 1980 and earned a Bachelor’s
Degree from Glassboro State College in
Computer Science with a minor in Business.
In 1987, He married his high school sweet-
heart, Terri Bencie.
While attending college and working for
his Uncle Danny as a concrete construction
laborer, an idea formed. Waiting only four
months after his marriage and graduation, he
decided to turn that idea into reality. He con-
vinced his friend, Lenny Gagliardi that it was
time to start their own concrete and masonry
company. With two red Toyota pickups, a few
dollars and a lot of ambition, they formed
their company, Tri-State Masonry, currently
known as Tri-State Construction, Inc.
Gino and Terri have been married for 25
years and the have three grown children;
Zachary, Matthew, and Eric. All three boys
attended Sacred Heart Grammar and High
schools.
Gino has devoted much of his time to
being the Assistant Soccer coach, mentor and
fundraiser for The Vineland Galaxy for over
15 years. His company supports numerous
local athletic programs and has been a major
supporter of the Shoot Down Cancer
Foundation. Along with his wife, he has co-
chaired numerous golf tournaments and auc-
tions for Sacred Heart schools and an annual
Pancreatic Cancer Fundraiser for Catholic
Education.
To say that Gino is “Italian” really doesn’t
describe the extent of his upbringing. Gino
and his brothers’ first language was Italian
until they attended grammar school, at which
time his mother learned along with them.
Spaghetti sauce was never made with toma-
toes out of a can, tomatoes came from the
hundreds of jars that were processed with
local tomatoes each and every late summer—
and still do! Homemade wine is made by
every uncle, neighbor and pizon and is served
at every dinner, and if you are under the age
of 12, it is mixed with 7-Up. Suits and dress
clothes were made by his father and yes, all of
the furniture was covered in plastic.
Today, Gino’s Italian upbringing and tradi-
tions are evident in all that he does. Family
and in-laws all live within miles of each other.
He enjoys hosting parties along with his wife
at their home and entertaining family and
friends in Cape May. With his partner, Lenny,
they are famous for hosting and funding their
Eagles gourmet tailgating events.
With God’s grace, and family support, Gino
hopes that his children and grandchildren will
continue to build a prosperous, gratifying
future on the foundation he has set in place. I

Fall Lawn Care
Contrary to popular opinion, fall is the
best time of the year for lawn care.
Fertilization, weed and thatch control,
establishment of new lawns, and renova-
tion of poor quality lawns should be done
over the next few weeks.
The best time of the year to fertilize
your lawn is early fall. ool season grasses
grow rapidly in spring and fall. If you only
fertilize once a year, the best time to do it
is around Labor Day. For a moderate qual-
ity lawn, apply fertilizer May Day and
Labor Day. High quality lawns should be
fertilized May Day, Labor Day and
Halloween. Very high quality lawns that
are watered all summer may also be fertil-
ized around Father's Day.
Top quality lawn fertilizers contain
slow-release or controlled-release nitro-
gen. Look on the label for slow-release
forms such as ureaform, sulfur-coated
urea, milorganite, and IBDU. These forms
stimulate uniform growth over a period of
time and are less likely to burn the grass.
However, do not expect the quick green
up caused by fast-release forms. Slow-
release formulations are more costly but
worth the price for the improved health of
your lawn.
In early fall use a regular lawn fertiliz-
er with N-P-K ratios of 3:1:2 or 4:1:2. For
example, a bag may list 21-7-14 or 32-8-16.
Amounts don’t need to be exact but
should be similar to the suggested ratios.
Hold off on applying “winterizer” fertiliz-
ers until late October or early November.
Kentucky bluegrass and perennial rye-
grass lawns in sun should receive 1 to 4
pounds per 1000 square feet of actual
nitrogen every year. A rate of 1 pound of
nitrogen per 1000 square feet is recom-
mended for each fertilizer application.
Lawns and other plants in shade grow
slower and don’t need as much nitrogen
as plants in full sun. Therefore, shady
lawns should be fertilized at half the rec-
ommended rate.
A little math will show you how much
fertilizer you need to put on the lawn to
get 1 pound per 1000 square feet. Divide 1
by the first number in decimal form (per-
cent of nitrogen) on the fertilizer bag.
Multiply that by the square footage of
your lawn, then divide by 1000. The
answer will give you the total pounds of
fertilizer you need to apply to the lawn.
Here’s an example: You have 15-5-10
fertilizer and a 7000 square foot lawn.
One divided by 0.15 equals 6.7. Multiply
6.7 by 7000 for 46,900. Then divide by
1000 for the answer of 46.9 or 47 pounds.
So you would need to put 47 pounds of 15-
5-10 spread over the entire lawn to prop-
erly fertilize it.
September and October are the best
months to control perennial broadleaf
weeds like dandelions and clover. In
autumn the weeds prepare for winter by
pulling nutrients and starches from their
leaves into their roots. By doing this, they
also draw herbicides into their root sys-
tems, thus more effectively killing the
weed. Actively growing grass will quickly
fill in the bare spots created after the
weeds die.
Thatch is a build-up of living and dead
grass roots and stems between the soil
and green grass blades. The amount of
thatch in the lawn may be checked by cut-
ting three to four inches down into the
grass with a shovel and lifting up a piece
of sod. Thatch looks like a thick tangle of
dark brown roots above the soil level. If
thatch is greater than 1/2 inch, the lawn
should be core aerated or dethatched in

fall or spring. In lawns with a thatch layer
over 3/4 inch thick, you should aerate
then topdress with a thin layer (1/8 to 1/4
inch) of soil or compost. Topdressing adds
microorganisms that help breakdown
thatch.
The ideal time for planting grass seed
to either establish a new lawn or renovate
a poor quality one is the middle of August
to the middle of September. During
September grasses grow rapidly in the
cool fall weather and have less competi-
tion from germinating weeds.
Whether seeding or sodding, the key to
long term lawn quality is proper soil
preparation. Soil should be tilled six inch-
es deep. Incorporate organic matter, such
as compost or peat, when tilling. If soil
test results indicate a soil pH problem,
sulfur or lime should be added at this
time. After tilling smooth with a rake and
apply starter fertilizer.
Top quality grass seed will germinate
better and be more disease resistant over
time. Newly seeded lawns must have ade-
quate moisture for seed germination and
seedling growth. The seedbed and later
seedlings must be kept moist for six
weeks.
Although many people consider fall a
time to relax and watch football on televi-
sion, don’t pick up the remote until the
lawn care is done. Next year’s lawn will be
the better for it.
Landis 4-H Students
Dedicate Butterfly Garden
Wrapping up more than three years of
effort, members of the Landis School 4-H
Club celebrated the successful comple-
tion/opening of "Sun Seekers Butterfly
Garden and Solar Pond" recently with a
ribbon-cutting ceremony open to parents
and the public. The program, and the
project, were directed by Donna Grasso,
an art teacher at the school.
The event included students leading
the flag salute, Landis School student
pledge, 4-H pledge and motto and several
readings. One of the highlights was the
release of three monarch butterflies by
Taryn and Abigal Bles and Nick Ferrara.
In a fitting tribute to the project, the but-
terflies, coaxed gently by the students,
floated through the bright afternoon sky
over the garden and pond.
Beginning in 2009, the 4-
H students shared a vision
to design and create this gar-
den at Landis School, origi-
nally developed during the
three-day Environmental
Ambassadors program at
Appel Farm. The pond is
designed to attract butter-
flies, frogs (help with mos-
quitoes) and remain eco-
friendly—using no electrici-
ty. Students planted Jersey
Fresh fruits and vegetables, some of
which were enjoyed during a salsa-mak-
ing demonstration with Landis 21st
Century Program students during the
summer months.
A New Jersey Education Association
(NJEA) Grant and local businesses donat-
ed supplies/materials to the project,
including a grant that will allow the stu-
dents to learn canning. The students plan
to preserve salsa made from cilantro,
tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and bell pep-
pers that were grown in their "Sun
Seekers" garden/pond.
Members of the 4-H Art, Nature &
Gardening Club include Kathryn
Slusarczyk, Kaniel Cruzado, Stephanie
Noguez, Taryn Bles, Nicholas Ferrara,
Angelica You, and C. Quyang. I

Romano defeated Barse by a substantial
margin four years ago, and Bermudez was
beaten by Barse when he won his first term
in 2004. Neither Albrecht nor Mazur has
run for the top office before.
Romano, of course, confidently supported
staying the course and proudly touted his
achievements—lowering electric rates, creat-
ing a booming solar power industry, shrink-
ing the government workforce by 160, and
lowering the budget by $6 million.
Barse, a polished and dynamic speaker
well-versed in the issues, employed a “back
to the future” strategy stressing the courage
of his convictions, knowledge of the city and
all its people, and capacity as a decision-
maker.
Albrecht, whose knowledgeable and
homespun performance impressed many
observers, said he would use his success as a
councilman to help make Vineland a city
where young people would remain instead
of taking their skills elsewhere.
Bermudez, personal, sensible, and sym-
pathetic; whose remarks were generally
shorter than those of the others, emphasized
fiscal responsibility—the same kind he
meticulously practices in his debt-free per-
sonal and business dealings.
Mazur, an aggressive, self-proclaimed
champion of Vineland’s working class,
unconventionally called for the building of a
multi-million dollar recreation complex in
South Vineland that would provide the city
with full employment and no municipal debt.
Last Wednesday’s event wasn’t so much a
debate as a series of two-minute stump
speeches given in response to each of six
questions posed by the moderator. With most
candidates often reading from apparently
prepared remarks, an overwhelming portion
of the discussion took place in a calm and
deferential tone. In the other part, though,
enough sparks flew to light up the room.
Amidst catcalls from Romano supporters
and applause from his own, Barse, with rel-
ish, blasted the mayor for “sneaking pay-
checks without telling anyone. He charged
him with “having a feast for a couple hun-
dred of his cronies—not just a luncheon:
shrimp cocktail, oysters Rockefellers, using
other’s people money to do this sort of thing
when people in Vineland are struggling.”
Barse also criticized the incumbent for driv-
ing what he termed was a car that belonged
in the Vineland Police Department.
“If I wanted a muscle car for my own use,”
Barse said in his summation, “I’d buy it myself.”
Romano chose not to answer Barse’s
barbs. Instead, for his part, he read a June
30, 2004, article from The Daily Journal, tak-
ing Bermudez to task for “truancy from all
post-election council meetings” after he lost
his bid for mayor. Conley (who was so
impartial as to not even know the candidates
by name) told him to stop reading, but the
mayor persisted and completed his attack.
Bermudez did not react.
Even though in the current economic cli-
mate, it is next to impossible for municipal
government to have an impact on new busi-
ness development or the unemployment
rate, much of the program was spent on
these issues and the candidates’ opinions
differed little in substance. The three small
business owners—Albrecht, Barse, and
Bermudez—each spoke to that experience as
a basis for tackling economic problems.
Albrecht was most poignant.
He said when his son is grown, along with
the children of other residents, he wants the
city to have an “air of prosperity” that will
make them want to keep their skills here.
“Without that, this city will not sustain
itself and right now we are not on that
path—they are going somewhere else and
making some other city prosperous. If we
overcome that, Vineland will be great, even
when I’m rolling over somewhere. Whatever
I can do to make that happen for him and
his little ones, that’s what I’ll do.”
Bermudez wants to expand the two-year
vocational school to a four-year one to build
skills for workers and to attract companies
to the area.
“I believe every student has a fighting
chance for an opportunity to create the skills
that they need so that we can lure compa-
nies to come here,” he said.
Romano pointed out his administration’s
$2.7 million loan to retain Boscov’s.
“We saved 90 jobs and anyone in this
area knows Boscov’s is the hub of the
Cumberland Mall. If we let that close, it
would have been a tragedy,” he said. The
city’s loan to the Landis Theater also saved
it, he said.
Barse, who said he was running, “Frankly
because I feel I can do a better job than the
gentlemen getting up here,” proposed closer
cooperation with the school system and the
development of a high-tech zone. He also
stressed the importance to “adhere to and
protect the master plan and zoning accom-
plishments of the previous administration,”
saying they protect the city against residen-
tial overdevelopment.
Mazur got the biggest laugh from those
in attendance. In the context of public-pri-
vate cooperation for financing projects, he
related how a woman gave the Landis
Theater $1,000 and, in exchange, received a
private seat with her name on it.
“I hope the theater doesn’t charge me
$1,000 because I won’t have any money for
my campaign,” he said.
The electric utility, often a contentious
point in past elections, was only praised by
all candidates in this one.
Romano said he planned to continue the
utility’s spectacular success, especially in
solar power. He said another 60-megawatt
gas turbine will be built at Clayville Switch
by 2015 and then Vineland will be “totally
energy independent; we won’t have to buy
electricity off the grid anymore.”
Albrecht, council liaison to the utility,
said that when he took office four years ago,
the utility was a “diamond in the rough.” He
said council “dusted it off and for the first
time in 40 years, we built a new turbine, we
have the lowest electric rates in the state,
and we have 32 megawatts of solar power, all
at zero cost to the taxpayers.”
Romano pointed out that he is, and
would continue to be, a full-time mayor,
noting that all the other candidates have
other jobs. I

DEBATE
Continued from cover
Voting Options and Dates
for Cumberland County
County Clerk Gloria Noto would
like to encourage anyone who would
like to vote by mail for the November
6, 2012, general election that they
may request a ballot by completing a
“vote-by-mail” application and for-
warding it to her office. The applica-
tions are available by calling the
clerk’s office at 856-453-4860 or by
visiting the NJ Division of Elections
website online at www.njelections.org
and downloading an application.
Completed applications must be
received by October 30 (seven days
prior to the election) to be processed
and mailed back to the voter.
Noto is also happy to announce
that voters may visit her office
beginning on Monday, October 1,
2012, to apply and vote in person.
The voter will still need to complete
an application and then will be given
the ballot, which they may take with
them and mail back. They may also
choose to vote immediately at the
office. The Board of Elections must
receive the voted ballot no later than
the close of polls on Election Day,
Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 8 p.m.
To further convenience anyone
interested in the “vote-by-mail”
option, office hours will be extended
on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday,
October 31, November 1 and
November 2, until 6:30 p.m. Further,
the office will be open on Saturday,
November 3, from 9 a.m. until noon.
Voters may also vote on Monday,
November 5, until 3 p.m.
Voters who do not wish to vote by
mail may visit their regular polling
place and cast their ballot on the vot-
ing machine on Election Day, Tues-
day, November 6, 2012. The polls
open at 6 a.m. and will remain open
until 8 p.m. All registered voters in
the county will be mailed a sample
ballot one week prior to the election
advising them of their polling site and
to assist them in becoming familiar
with the machine ballot. Please call
the county clerk’s office at 856-453-
4860 for further information.

Relief from
Debt and Stress
A local attorney with 39 years of experience has
advice about mortgage modification and bankruptcy.
1. Would you like to have more peace,
joy, and happiness, and less stress, anxiety,
and frustration?
2. Would you like to sleep better at
night?
3. Would you like to be totally debt-free
in just four months?
4. Would you like to save $500 a month
or more on your mortgage payments?
5. Would you like to stop the bill collec-
tors from driving you nuts?
6. Isn’t this a great time to get a fresh
financial start?
If you answered yes to two or more of
those questions, you might be an excellent
candidate for either a chapter 7 or a chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy, or a mortgage loan
modification.
There are many misconceptions and
misunderstandings about bankruptcy and
mortgage loan modifications. If you are in
financial trouble, bankruptcy is your right
as provided in the United States
Constitution by our founding fathers.
President Obama’s administration has
created a program to help millions of home
owners reduce their monthly mortgage
payments, and even reduce their interest
rate to as low as 2 percent for five years.
Bankruptcy and mortgage loan modifi-
cation are perfectly legal, moral, and ethi-
cal. There is no shame, stigma, or guilt if
you need help in these areas. Federal laws
are here to help you, and we are here to
help you learn what you can legally
accomplish.
Bankruptcy and mortgage loan modifi-
cation can help you immensely. How
would you feel if you had freedom from
debt with the blessings of the Federal
Government?
We help people understand their rights.
Mortgage loan modification can
accomplish the following:
1. Substantially reduce your monthly
mortgage payments
2. Substantially reduce your mortgage
interest rate
3. Annual interest can be as low as 2%
4. You can get a loan modification even
if you are many months behind on your
mortgage payments.
Some of the things you can accomplish
through bankruptcy are the following:
1. Wipe out credit card bills/
medical bills/utility bills/personal loans/
surcharges on your driver’s license/
many income taxes more than three years
old/legal fees
2. You get 5 years to pay back mortgage
arrears.
3. Substantially reduce car payments
and interest rates.
4. Stop wage executions
5. Release funds from frozen bank
accounts
6. Stop repressions/stop sheriff sales
7. Get vehicles back that have been
repossessed.
8. Stop evictions
9. Wipe out second mortgages on your
primary home
10. Reduce mortgage balances on
investment properties
Check out our videos on our website at
www.WipeOutYourBills.com. We always
give you a totally free office consultation
or phone consultation at your conven-
ience. Chapter 7–$999, plus costs. Chapter
13–$680 to start.
We are here to help. Why wait? Call
now for your free consultation.
Don’t be surprised if you feel a lot bet-
ter, sleep a lot better, and have substantial
stress relief after you have spoken with us.
Expreience counts—Helping people get
a fresh start for 39 years!

Vintage Vineland { VINCE FARINACCIO }
Chocolate Factory
The Landis goes all out in showing a classic film this
weekend, even placing a Golden Ticket in one of the
candy bars available for purchase.
T
he Landis Theater didn’t feature a
classic film night during the month
of September, but its Open House
this Saturday from noon until 5
p.m. will more than make up for it with a free
screening of the 1971 film Willy Wonka and
the Chocolate Factory at 3 p.m., complete with
a Golden Ticket in one of the candy bars that
will be available for purchase.
The movie has become a cult classic over
the decades since its release over 40 years
ago and served as the inspiration for Tim
Burton’s anemic 2005 remake. Directed by
Mel Stuart, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate
Factory features a dazzling performance by
Gene Wilder as the sly title character who
conducts a tour of his facilities for a small
group of children, the lucky winners of the
rare Golden Tickets planted in only five of
the company’s candy bars. The prize
becomes a passport to a heretofore isolated
kingdom for the children and their parents.
The movie was an odd choice for Stuart
who spent his early years directing docu-
mentaries like Four Days in November and
Wattstax. According to his book, Pure
Imagination: The Making of Willy Wonka and
the Chocolate Factory, Stuart turned his
attention to fiction in 1968, but it was when
his daughter approached him with a copy of
Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory, demanding that he make a movie of
it, that he began creating the work for which
he is most recognized.
“I was fascinated by the bizarre and
amusing way a simple moral thesis was set
forth—virtue was rewarded and nastiness
was punished,” Stuart writes in his memoir.
“The major problem, as I saw it, would be to
set a tone throughout the movie so that peo-
ple would believe it was more realistic than
fantastical.”
In a bizarre twist, producer David L.
Wolper pitched the movie to the Quaker Oats
cereal company, which was looking to intro-
duce a new product in the form of a choco-
late bar. The firm bought the rights to the
book and financed the film, seeing it as a way
to launch its new confectionery.
With Dahl as screenwriter and Munich,
Germany, as the location for a shoot that
would span August 31 to November 19, 1970,
Stuart set about selecting his cast. A myth
that persists to this day is that 1940s screen
idol Fred Astaire was considered for the role
of Wonka, but Stuart dispels the rumor, writ-
ing that even if the actor had approached him
about playing the title character, the 72-year-
old Astaire was too old for the part. And
while Joel Grey was considered, his five-foot-
five height crossed him off the director’s list.
Wilder became the choice the moment he
entered New York City’s Plaza Hotel casting
suite, and his performance in the film proves
it was an inspired decision. The reasons
behind Wonka’s contest unfurl gradually
through the course of the movie and Wilder’s
eccentric portrayal keeps the other charac-
ters as well as the audience off-balance in the
most entertaining way. As Wilder once
explained, “I wanted people to wonder if
Willy Wonka was telling the truth so that you
wouldn't really know until the end of the pic-
ture what Willy's motivations were."
It’s misguided to view Willy Wonka and
the Chocolate Factory as merely a movie for
children. The director felt the same way
about Dahl’s book and aimed the film’s mes-
sage at adults as well as their offspring.
“I felt it wasn’t just a children’s book,” he
writes in Pure Imagination, “but a complex
moral tale about good kids and bad kids, good
parents and bad parents, centered around this
fascinating chocolate maker, Willy Wonka.
Although it may not be obvious, it is also the
story of a quest. What makes it so real for
today’s audience is that the quest is not for
hordes of gold or the kiss of a beautiful
princess. The quest in this movie is some-
thing as mundane—albeit enticing—as a life-
time supply of chocolate. And the evil spirits
are not goblins and wizards, but the character
flaws in the participants themselves.”
Once upon a time, the Landis Theater
filled Saturday afternoons with matinee
screenings for the younger set. This Saturday,
it turns back the clock with a film all ages
need to experience. I

This fall, Dr. Ledden of Vineland and
other doctors of chiropractic (DCs)
across the country will highlight ways
you can feel your best every day, regard-
less of your age, occupation or fitness
level, during National Chiropractic
Health Month in October. This year’s
theme—“Find Your Game”—focuses on
how everyone can take steps toward opti-
mal health, wellness and functioning.
“From ‘weekend warriors’ to active
grandparents, people have a wide range
of health and wellness goals,” says Dr.
Ledden. “The good news is that everyday
victories are possible with just a few
healthy lifestyle changes. Your chiroprac-
tic physician can offer help by providing
nutritional advice, exercise and lifestyle
recommendations and natural approaches
to managing injuries, aches and pains.”
In honor of National Chiropractic
Health Month, Dr. Ledden offers these
tips to help you find your game:
• Get moving: You don’t have to train
like an Olympian, just aim for a minimum
of 20 to 30 minutes of exercise three to
four days a week.
• Stretchdaily: Improving flexibility is key
to avoiding injury. Make a habit of stretch-
ing your major muscle groups each day.
• Bust stress: New activities and experi-
ences help prevent professional and per-
sonal burnout. Finding your game involves
discovering new activities you enjoy.
• Eat right: Even a few simple changes
can have a positive impact on your health.
Limit red meat, sugar and salt; and don’t
self-prescribe dietary supplements.
Consult a health care professional to
ensure your body gets the nutrients it
needs to function optimally.
• Recharge: Try to sleep more each
night, and revitalize with a glass of pome-
granate juice and a brisk walk in the
afternoon. Rest, exercise and good nutri-
tion can put pep back into your step.
For more tips on being your best, visit
www.ChiroHealthy.com.
Sponsored by the American
Chiropractic Association, National
Chiropractic Health Month is a nation-
wide observance held each October. The
event helps raise public awareness of the
benefits of chiropractic care and its natu-
ral, whole-person, patient-centered
approach to health and wellness.
Dr. Tammy Ledden, D.C. is a graduate
of Palmer College of Chiropractic. She
has been in private practice for seven
years. Dr. Ledden is also an adjunct pro-
fessor for Atlantic Cape Community
College. For more information about Dr.
Ledden can help you achieve better over-
all health and wellness, please call the

ineland’s mayoral race leading
up to the November 6 election
numbers five candidates—(in
alphabetical order) Douglas Albrecht,
Perry Barse, Ruben Bermudez, David
Mazur, and incumbent Robert Romano.
On Wednesday, September 26, those
candidates gathered at the Landis
Theater for a debate hosted by this
Chamber and The Daily Journal. The
debate was moderated by The League of
Women Voters. It was a good forum for
voters to learn who each candidate is
and where they stand on important
issues affecting Vineland residents.
This debate is especially important as
a voter education tool in light of the fact
that local voters will have more deci-
sions to make in the voting booth than
ever this November.
This is the first time Vineland residents
will be asked to choose a mayor, five city
council members, three school board
members, two county freeholders, a con-
gressman and a president, in addition to
referenda, all in one election.
Municipal and school board elections
have previously been held in separate
springtime elections.
In the mayoral race, incumbent mayor
Robert Romano is seeking a second term,
challenged by former two-term mayor
Perry Barse, current city council member
Douglas Albrecht, former city council
president Ruben Bermudez, and labor
and activist gadfly David Mazur.
Romano defeated Barse by a substantial
margin four years ago, and Bermudez
was beaten by Barse when he won his
first term in 2004. Neither Albrecht nor
Mazur has run for the top office before.
Romano, of course, confidently sup-
ported staying the course and proudly
touted his achievements—lowering elec-
tric rates, creating a booming solar
power industry, shrinking the govern-
ment workforce by 160, and lowering the
budget by $6 million.
Barse, a polished and dynamic speak-
er well-versed in the issues, employed a
“back to the future” strategy stressing
the courage of his convictions, knowl-
edge of the city and all its people, and
capacity as a decision-maker.
Albrecht, whose knowledgeable and
homespun performance impressed many
observers, said he would use his success
as a councilman to help make Vineland a
city where young people would remain
instead of taking their skills elsewhere.
Bermudez, personal, sensible, and
sympathetic; whose remarks were gener-
ally shorter than those of the others,
emphasized fiscal responsibility—the
same kind he meticulously practices in
his debt-free personal and business deal-
ings.
Mazur, an aggressive, self-proclaimed
champion of Vineland’s working class,
unconventionally called for the building
of a multi-million dollar recreation com-
plex in South Vineland that would pro-
vide the city with full employment and
no municipal debt.
Last Wednesday’s event wasn’t so
much a debate as a series of two-minute
stump speeches given in response to
each of six questions posed by the mod-
erator. With most candidates often read-
ing from apparently prepared remarks,
an overwhelming portion of the discus-
sion took place in a calm and deferential
tone. In the other part, though, enough
sparks flew to light up the room.
For more details about the debate,
read the cover story in the October 3
issue of The Grapevine. I
