Rodeo
returns
to Daube
Farm
BY HEATHER FIORE
The Montgomery Sun
The Montgomery Rodeo is re-
turning to Skillman’s Daube
Farm June 8-9 to celebrate its
landmark 20th anniversary.
The event will feature bronc
riding, bareback horse riding
and barrel racing, all provided
by the Oklahoma-based traveling
rodeo company, the International
Professional Rodeo Association.
For young children, mutton bust-
ing – trying to ride a sheep – and
the calf chase – trying to grab an
envelope loosely attached to the
tail – will be featured. Along with
the rodeo events, there will also
be vendors, games, food and re-
freshments.
Although the rodeo was absent
last year, it’s coming back this
year with help from the Mont-
gomery Business Association.
“I think it will be a big turnout
this year because a lot of people
missed it [last year],” said Frank

Arlina Cai, a senior at Mont-
gomery High School, recently
won several awards for her paint-
ing, “Vermeer,” in the nation-
wide contest for teenagers
known as the Scholastic Art and
Writing Awards.
The contest, which is in its
90th year, gives students in
grades seven through 12 the op-
portunity to be recognized for
their creative talents. There are
28 different categories of art and
writing students can apply to,
with the chance of either earn-
ing scholarships or having their
works exhibited or published.
The Alliance for Young Artists
& Writers was founded in 1994 to
present the awards and to give
teenagers this national platform
to portray their works, according
to the organization’s website.
The awards have some note-
worthy winners, including Andy
Warhol, Sylvia Plath and Robert
Redford.
There are two types of awards
in which students can be recog-
nized – regional and national.
Less than 1 percent of the partic-
ipants who submit work to the
contest receive medals, Cai said.
Cai received medals on both
scales. She obtained two Gold
Key awards – one for “Vermeer”
and one for her entire portfolio –
the highest level of achievement
at a regional level. Approximate-
ly 7-10 percent of all regional
submissions are recognized with

E
very four years, there is a big,
big election in New Jersey that
costs candidates lots and lots of
money. Gubernatorial candidates ad-
vertise hard and heavy throughout the
state, spending boatloads of cash in the
New York City and Philadelphia metro
markets.
This year’s election for Garden State
governor is extra special because the
incumbent, Chris Christie, is thought
to be a leading candidate for the Re-
public nomination for president in
2016.
Before that is a possibility, though,
he will have to beat his Democratic op-
ponent in New Jersey this November.
And, even before that, he’ll have to
defeat his Republican opposition for
the gubernatorial nomination, Seth
Grossman, an Atlantic County lawyer
and political veteran.
While the focus of this election has
already been on Christie and top Dem-
ocratic candidate Barbara Buono, both
must make it through next Tuesday’s
Primary Election before they can com-
pletely turn their focus to November’s
General Election.
Buono, a state senator from Newark
who has been representing the 18th
Legislative District since 2002, will
square off against Troy Webster, an
aide to the mayor of East Orange.
If Buono and Christie succeed next
week, as many expect, they’ll officially
turn their focus on each other, letting
the money, and muckraking, fly.
Both parties have already begun tel-
evision ad campaigns, and the number
of ads and ferocity of the content will
surely pick up as November’s election
approaches.
It’s an unfortunate reality of cur-
rent-day electioneering, especially in
this state.
So expect your TV sets, your radios
and your newspapers to be filled with
political advertisements over the next
six months until an official governor is
named.
In the meantime, get out and vote in
the Primary Election next Tuesday,
June 4, if you’re a registered Republi-
can or Democrat.
In addition to the gubernatorial elec-
tion, there are also elections for the
General Assembly, state Senate and
local governing bodies. This is your
first chance to let your voice be heard.
Campaign season has begun
With Primary Elections next week, let the advertising begin

Do you plan to vote in next Tuesday’s
Primary Election? If so, why? If not,
why? Send us your thoughts in a letter

Rug society to have guest speaker at meeting
Princeton Rug Society announced that
Kurt Munkacsi will present a lecture on
Turkmen Engsi on Saturday June 8 at 2
p.m.
It will be made at the next meeting of
the Princeton Rug Society, which will be
held at the Mary Jacobs Library, located
at 64 Washington St. in Rocky Hill.
The lecture will focus on the different
tribal groups that wove them, the various
types, what makes an Engsi collectible,
and how to tell a good example from a bad
one.
Munkacsi will bring several examples
and would like to encourage members to
bring in their own examples of Turkmen
weaving; especially Engsi.
Munkacsi, a well-known Turkmen col-
lector, has been collecting rugs since 1987.
Rugs from his collection have been shown
in numerous exhibitions, the most recent
being “Timbuktu to Tibet,” the 75th An-
niversary exhibition of the Hajji Baba
Club.
Main rugs from his collection were ex-
hibited in “Bigger is Better – Main Car-
pets of the Turkmen” in New York City as
part of the 2003 Washington ICOC con-
vention.
He has given numerous lectures at the
Textile Museum, ACOR, Boston Rug Soci-
ety, Washington Textile Group, Philadel-
phia Rug and Textile Society, Princeton
Rug Club, Indianapolis Rug Society and
the Hajji Baba Club.
He was profiled in HALI magazine’s
New York Collectors issue, has published
articles in HALI, and was co-author of
the catalog “Main Carpets of the Turk-
men.”
He served as president of the HBC dur-
ing the 75th anniversary and was instru-
mental in producing the catalog and ac-
companying exhibition.
He resides in New York City and makes
his living producing the recordings of
composer Philip Glass.
The lecture is free and open to the pub-
lic. For more information, go to prince-
tonrugsociety.org.

MOTION GYMNASTICS
SUMMER CAMP IS BACK!
At Motion Gymnastics summer camp you
get to enjoy all the fun of summer camp,
while learning how to flip, jump, and tumble!
Come spend the summer with us from
June 24th through August 23rd.
This information was provid-
ed by the Montgomery Township
Police Department.
On May 10, a 31-year-old male
was arrested for possession of
marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia. He was
stopped by Sgt. James Gill for
maintenance of lamps. Gill de-
tected an odor of burnt and raw
marijuana emanating from the
vehicle while speaking with him,
and in a continued investigation,
it was determined that he was in
possession of marijuana less
than 50 grams and drug para-
phernalia. He was placed under
arrest and processed at the Mont-
gomery Township Police head-
quarters. He was issued a crimi-
nal complaint summons for pos-
session of marijuana under 50
grams and possession of drug
paraphernalia, as well as motor
vehicle summons for mainte-
nance of lamps and CDS in a
motor vehicle. He was released
pending a court appearance in
the Montgomery Township Mu-
nicipal Court.
On May 19 at 7 p.m., police ar-
rested three Montgomery resi-
dents and charged them with
possession of marijuana. Sgt.
Gerard DiDonato and Officers
Joseph Zizwarik and Joseph
Samec responded to a suspicious
vehicle call on Canterbury Lane.
There, they located two 18-year-
old males and a 19-year-old male
parked in a vehicle. An investiga-
tion disclosed bags of marijuana
in a glass jar on the floor of the
vehicle.
All were transported to head-
quarters for processing. The
driver also received a motor ve-
hicle summons for possession of
CDS in a motor vehicle. All three
residents are scheduled to ap-
pear in Montgomery Township
Municipal Court.
police reports
Drift, owner of Daube Farm. “I'm
everywhere in town and people
say they can't believe we didn't
have it last year, so a lot of people
are looking forward to it this
year. The local people really sup-
port it.”
Drift, who has been holding
the event on his farm since its in-
ception, came up with the idea to
bring a rodeo to town to generate
money for local charities.
“I was the only farmer around
who had horses, and everybody
in town was looking to raise
some money for local organiza-
tions,” he said.
“There are a lot of charities
around, so my wife and I, who
compete a lot with our horses,
were in Texas and went to the
Fort Worth Stock Show and
Rodeo and happened to meet the
guy that headed it. He was very
nice, and we were talking to him
about fundraisers, and he told me
the show was a fundraiser for all
of the local kids’ programs. So,
he said, ‘why don't you try it back
by you?’ and I thought it was an
awful good idea because there are
carnivals and all these things you
can do, but nobody's ever seen a
rodeo.”
The first year Drift brought the
rodeo to Montgomery Township,
it was a hit. He held a three-day
event, with a total of four shows,
where he sold between 3,000 and
4,000 tickets and raised $18,000 in
sponsorships.
“That’s how it ended up start-
ing and it just kept getting big-
ger,” he said.
However, since the cost of run-
ning a three-day rodeo was rela-
tively expensive – $28,000 when
he first started it – he decided to
cut it back to a two-day event fea-
turing two shows.
“It has raised a lot of money
over the years,” Drift said. “It has
probably raised around $500,000
since it started. It’s been great.”
This year, the MBA was look-
ing for a fundraiser to host, so it
approached Drift.
“They were curious if they
could work with us, so I said,
‘sure,’” he said. “They’re han-
dling the advertising and money.”
Jennifer Pierce, president of
the MBA, explained how the
MBA pursued the rodeo as anoth-
er one of its local initiatives.
“When the MBA first started [2
1/2 years ago], our first initiative
was to shop local, but we were
also talking about what cause we
could participate in to give back
to the community,” she said. “We
wanted to try to make a differ-
ence and have a cause we could
call our own, so, when the rodeo
was cancelled last year, I came up
with the idea to have that as our
cause.
“It draws people in from all
over New Jersey, Pennsylvania
and Delaware, so we figured we
could use the rodeo to bring
money from outside of Mont-
gomery to help Montgomery’s or-
ganizations.”
The MBA acquired several
sponsors for this year’s event, in-
cluding 1st Constitution Bank,
Belle Mead Co-Op, AIMS, Mas-
sage Envy, Princeton Back &
Spine, Tiger’s Tale and Fulton
Bank. Additional sponsorships
are still available.
The MBA has also pinpointed
a selection of local non-profits
that will be receiving funds from
the proceeds of the event, includ-
ing The Crawford House, Mont-
gomery EMS, Montgomery
Woman’s Club, Eden Autism
Services, Global Communities of
Support, The Montgomery PBA,
Rocky Hill First Aid and Rescue
Squad, and the Drift Scholarship
Fund at Montgomery High
School.
“This is a huge fundraiser; it’s
not just a show to make money,”
Pierce said. “It has always been
and still is a fundraiser for Mont-
gomery charities. That’s why
we’re doing this.”
The rodeo will begin at 7 p.m.
on Saturday, June 8, with gates
opening at 5 p.m. On Sunday,
June 9, the show starts at 3 p.m.,
with gates opening at 1 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults and
$12 for kids. Children under 3
will be admitted for free. Onsite
parking is $5.
Tickets can be purchased at 1st
Constitution Bank, Technician X,
Village Shoes, Utopia for Pets,
KiKi D's, Belle Mead Garage,
Window Accents and Flooring,
The Tiger’s Tale, Massage Envy
Spa and Jersey Fresh Photos.
They will also be available at the
event.

Gold Key awards.
She also received a Silver
Medal, the second-highest award
on a national level, which recog-
nizes works that demonstrate
“high honors” for “Vermeer.”
“I like to paint famous works
of art in a reinterpreted style,”
Cai said.
“I find that it makes it easier
to experiment with different
techniques when I have a ‘set’
subject. I painted the girl with
the pearl earring because I've al-
ways been fond of the painting,
so it made sense to make my own
version.”
Cai also submitted one of her
other works to the contest last
year, which was recognized with
a Silver Key, the second-highest
level of achievement on a region-
al level that recognizes approxi-
mately 10-15 percent of all re-
gional submissions. “I've been
doing art since I was a little kid,
but started painting last year,”
she said.
“My art teacher wants her stu-
dents to submit their paintings
in the competition, so I did. I
don't really care for the awards.
It's nice to be recognized, but I
don't feel like it validates me.”
As each year passes, the pro-
gram grows with increased par-
ticipation from students and
communities across the country.
In the past five years, submis-
sions have topped 700,000, and
students have been eligible for
more than $25 million in awards
and scholarships, according to
the website.

Princeton Elks Lodge is spon-
soring a community wide Flag
Day on Friday, June 14 at 6:30
p.m., a celebration which has be-
come one of the largest in the
state.
The “Honoring the Stars and
Stripes” celebration will be held
at the Princeton Elks Lodge.
This special day, which honors
the flag, originated in 1885 in a
Wisconsin public school. It was
not until 1949 that President
Harry Truman, who was an Elk,
signed an Act of Congress desig-
nating June 14 of each year as
National Flag Day.
The ceremony will begin with
a welcome address by Princeton
Elks Lodge’s Robert Church,
PSVP, ER.
There will also be an introduc-
tion of the lodge officers, fol-
lowed by the presentation of the
colors by Montgomery Boys and
Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts and
a singing of the “Star Spangled
Banner” by the Montgomery
Lower Middle School chorus.
The chorus will later present
a musical interlude and sing the
“Grand Old Flag.”
Montgomery Township Scout
groups will participate in read-
ings of “The History of the
Flag.”
The guest speaker will be
Brigadier General Michael L.
Cunniff, the adjutant general of
New Jersey.
Cunniff commands more than
9,000 soldiers and airmen of the
New Jersey Army and Air Na-
tional Guard.
He manages all New Jersey
state veterans’ programs, com-
missions and facilities.
Since joining the Air Force in
1982, Cunniff has served in
many operations, which include
Operations Northern Watch,
Joint Forge, Allied Force, Noble
Eagle, Enduring Freedom and
Iraqi Freedom.
The lodge will honor the vet-
eran of the year, Michael Ma-
honey, for his contribution to the
veterans program.
Awards will be presented to
the winners of the Americanism
Essay Contest. Grades five
through eight, for their essays
on “What Does the National An-
them Means To Me?” Carina
Manek’s essay was not only a
winner at the lodge level, but
also in the state essay judging.
A Princeton Elks Lodge Amer-
ican Freedom award will be will
also be presented.
The Flag Day celebration will
conclude with Montgomery
Township Boy Scout Troops No.
46 and No. 850 performing the
flag retirement ceremony.
Refreshments will be served
after.

For over 100 years conventional salt-based water softeners have stripped out healthy
minerals like calcium and magnesium from water to prevent scale. While effective, salt-based
water softeners have many undesirable side effects including: hauling heavy salt bags, briny
taste, slimy-feeling showers, health concerns, and flushing thousands of gallons
of salty waste water into our sewers and our environment.

Bands from all over performed
at the Music in the Parks Festival
BY ANITA LOUIE
Special to the Sun
On May 11, the crowd was
hushed as the announcer stepped
on the stage. The audience was a
motley crew of rain-drenched stu-
dents, each displaying a school
shirt. Mr. Heller had a stuffed
monkey piggybacking his neck.
The day before, 11 bands had
traveled all the way from Indiana,
New Jersey and Virginia to per-
form in the Annual Music in the
Parks Festival at Palmyra High
School in Pennsylvania. From 9
a.m. until 10 p.m. on May 10, the
audience had seen a huge melting
pot of music by the time Mont-
gomery took the stage. Mr. Jeff
Woodworth conducted the seventh
and eighth grade choirs perform-
ing an astounding variety of
music including “100 Years,”
“Benedictus,” “Amani Utupe,”
“Seize the Day,” “O Nata Lux,” and
“Viva la Vida.” “I was extremely
pleased with the performance,”
Woodworth said.
In a different venue, the presti-
gious Montgomery Jazz Band, di-
rected by Mr. Ron Heller, entered
the stage amid cheers. They awed
the crowd with a fantastic rendi-
tion of “Sioux Falls Fusion” and
“Hard Right” before the seventh
grade concert band entered under
the direction of Dr. Adam Hackel.
The seventh grade performed “A
Scottish Portrait” and cuts from
the musical “Jekyll and Hyde.”
Afterward, the eighth grade
band with conductor Heller start-
ed off with a lighthearted song,
“Sundance,” before finishing off
Montgomery’s performances with
“Longford Legend.”
The young musicians, satisfied
with their outstanding perform-
ances, then hopped on buses back
to the hotel where they stayed the
night, celebrating with friends.
Bright and early the next morn-
ing, the students headed out to
Hershey Park, where they had a
blast rocketing upside down on
roller coasters and trying out their
skills in arcade games despite
some light showers.
However, the highlight of the
day was yet to come. Around 4
p.m., the musicians assembled and
headed to the nearby Hershey
Arena for the Music in the Parks
ceremony. Representatives from
each ensemble were sent down to
the middle of the arena while
everyone else sat waiting with
bated breath. The scoring system
was explained – the bands would
be graded with a rating of Poor,
Fair, Good, Excellent, or Superior.
To Montgomery’s delight, all the
ensembles took home a trophy for
Excellent.
