Let Freedom Ring!


Holiday events and fireworks displays in the region help residents celebrate their American heritage of independence. { BY RYAN DINGER }

uly 4th. There is no date more synonymous with freedom and independence. For it was on that day nearly 250 years ago that the Continental Congress officially approved the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. Since that time, The Fourth of July has become known as Independence Day, an annual celebration of Americas departure from the tyranny of the Kingdom of Great Britain. Interestingly, at the time, the date July 4th was expected to be an afterthought. In fact, founding father and future president John Adams even wrote to his wife, Abigail, that the second day of July, 1776 will be the most memorable epoch in the history of

AmericaJuly 2nd being the day that the Continental Congress voted on and approved a resolution of independence, before debating and revising the wording of the Declaration two days later. However, from the start, Americans celebrated their freedom on July 4th, taking their cue from the date that was printed on the Declaration of Independence. If youre looking to celebrate this year, heading back to the place where it all beganPhiladelphia offers a host of entertainment, unprecedented anywhere else in the country. If heading across the Delaware doesnt suit your plans, there are plenty of local celebrations as well:

I Letters to the Editor


I am writing about the roads in Vineland. Who is cutting up the roads? Why are there patches in roads all over Vineland? I am told that South Jersey Gas Company and Landis Sewage Authority are primarily cutting into the roads. But who is responsible for watching how they leave the road after they have dug into the road? The road department? The engineers office? Who pays for repairing the roads? The taxpayer. Who pays for new asphalting? The taxpayer. Who pays when S. Jersey Gas and Landis Sewage do a terrible job fixing the road that they tore up? The taxpayer! Who has to telephone the road department to let them know that there is a pothole or a dip in the road? The taxpayer. Is it too much to ask that the person in charge of the road department get in his car, drive down the roads, record where there are potholes and dips, return to his office, draw up a schedule to repair those potholes and dips, and then do it? This taxpayer wants the people who are in charge and who are responsible to be called to the mayor or city council to answer for their actions or lack of actions regarding the unsatisfactory conditions of the Vineland roads. Who is responsible?
Esiz Emes, Vineland

The Right House


Bridgetonand Atlantic Street House was chosen as a sound location for the commune.
he process of establishing Atlantic Street House (ASH) commune began in 1972 and was followed by an intense year in which its four adult founding members searched throughout the county for the proper location. We spent about one-and-a-half years discussing, planning and then searching for the right house, said Ceci Brandt, a founding member along with her thenhusband Dave Fava and their two children. There were four adults and two children in the original planning. We looked for a big house with a yard, close to a town. We looked for the right house in Vineland and around Cumberland County and Salem County, but did not find the right combination of space and price, cofounder Maggie DeMarco added. I was glad that we found a house in town in Bridgeton. I liked the idea of an old house. I liked the size of the town, and I had always been in love with the look of Bridgeton. So we had a great-sized house at a good price in a small town with the possibility that whatever we did might make a difference. As interviews for this series were concluding, Ed Nakawatase, another original member of ASH, located the chronology of the commune he had complied for a 1993 reunion of its members. In the first entry for 1972, we discover that the search for a house began in winter-spring. The second entry, dated June 17, reads, Watergate office of the Democratic National Committee is burglarized. Although 1972 was a few years removed from the major mobilizations against the Vietnam War and such polarizing confrontations like those at the Chicago Democratic Convention and Berkeleys Peoples Park, the times remained heady and politicized nonetheless, as certain ASH chronology entries remind us. The recent slayings of Black Panther Fred Hampton and Soledad Prison inmate George Jackson pervaded the media. Political activists like Angela Davis became folk heroes by successfully challenging laws and being acquitted for a crime in which she had no direct involvement. The U.S. had already invaded Cambodia, contrary to initial denials by the White House. And the Watergate

break-in launched the eventual takedown of Richard Nixons presidency. Popular music carried the news of these deaths and scandals just as efficiently as the eras print media and nightly news broadcasts. In 1971, Bob Dylan had resumed the topical stance he had abandoned over six years earlier by releasing a song about George Jacksons death. In 1972, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who had been using their public image and occasional politically tinged singles to campaign for world peace, unleashed the album Some Time in New York City, the result of their new friendship with Youth International Party member Jerry Rubin. Its songs decried the plight of Northern Ireland, paid tribute to Angela Davis and presented a feminist viewpoint. Even its artwork, designed as the front page of a newspaper, made its intentions clear. But it was Kris Kristofferson who perhaps gave the best diagnosis of 1972 in the title track of his album Jesus Was a Capricorn. The songs second verse, in particular, touches on a universal truth: Eggheads cursing, rednecks cussing hippies for their hair, Others laugh at straights who laugh at freaks who laugh at squares. Some folks hate the whites who hate the blacks who hate the Klan, Most of us hate anything that we dont understand. The founders of Atlantic Street House would have been aware of what Kristofferson was singing about in that last line. In discussing how Bridgeton was a sound choice for the communes location, DeMarco quoted from a funding request letter to the Philadelphia War Resistors League written by Nakawatase in October 1972. In it, Nakawatase acknowledged what ASH might face: We all recognize that we will be somewhat less than welcome in Bridgeton both because we are a commune and because of our political views Earlier this year, Nakawatase recounted a story from ASHs early days in which a neighbor chose to burn the American flag on the sidewalk across the street from ASH.

I Downtown Vineland
{ BY TODD NOON, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, VDID / MAINSTREET VINELAND }

Autumn Plans
Plans are underway for the sidewalk sale and Wedding Weekend events.
ne primary purpose of the events that Main Street Vineland plans, aside from bringing people downtown to have a good time, is to help our downtown merchants. We do this by connecting people with the wide array of downtown shops we have. While people are downtown for an event, we encourage them to visit and patronize the stores. At the same time, we encourage businesses to take advantage of the additional number of people that our events bring to our downtown and do what they can to market themselves and turn these these people into customerssales, coupons, sidewalk displays, and such. While our larger feet-on-the-street events are the ones that most people remember, we have some merchant events that also truly exemplify what our events are supposed to accomplishour annual Sidewalk Sale and Downtown Wedding Weekend events. Sidewalk Sale Our Sidewalk Sale is scheduled for Saturday, July 27 (rain date: Saturday, August 3) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will run all along the business portion of Landis Avenue. We brought back our Sidewalk Sale last year, after a hiatus of several years, as a sign that the revitalization of our downtown was making it again a destination to shop and have a good time. We plan to make it even bigger and better this year, as businesses throughout Landis Avenue display their goods and services to show all that our downtown has to offer. We are encouraging as many downtown businesses as possible to participate and we want the public to come down and have a great time. Well 92.1 WVLT doing a live remote broadcast direct from the sale and they will also be doing some pre-event promotion of the sale for a couple of weeks beforehand. Youll also see some newspaper advertising and a banner over Landis

Avenue when the event is approaching. Downtown Wedding WeekendOur Downtown Wedding Weekend is scheduled for Saturday, September 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, and will also take place along the business portion of Landis Avenue. Now in its third year, the Downtown Wedding Weekend brings together downtown all the various wedding-related business and services available on Landis Avenue, and more. It is the ultimate shopping experience for that special day in a couples life with a chance to win some great grand prizes. You will be able to find everything from gowns and formal wear, shoes, and jewelry to flowers, printing services for invitations, limousine services, and a whole lot more. Maps to help people locate participating businesses will be available at any of the businesses. Some businesses will be participating from their own locations while others will have booths set up at Landis MarketPlace. Watch for more information about this event, as well. Both these events would not happen if it were not for the hard work and dedication of Brian Lankin, our Promotions Committee Chairperson, a member of our Main Street Vineland Board of Directors, and owner of Als Shoes. As a downtown business owner, he understands what his fellow merchants need and want and can work with them to make these events successful. Discover this for yourself and make downtown Vineland your shopping destination. I

Blueberry Pie, Anyone?


This blueberry sour cream pie is a favorite of our columnist, a self-proclaimed pie enthusiast.

y absolute favorite thing in the world is pie. I like any kind of fruit or savory pie. And no matter what the season, there is always a pie waiting out there for me. My sister Linda makes a tasty little Key Lime pie when the mood strikes her and my best friend Joyce makes the best squash pies in the fall. I enjoy a Quiche Lorraine whenever I find it in a little tea room or cafe. I recently had one from The Red Barn in Hammontonjust delicious. I always order pie a' la mode whenever it is on the menu. Somehow you just cant beat the combination of the warm pie and the slowly melting ice cream. I hear that Verona Custard on Delsea Drive actually has Key Lime pie ice cream. I havent been over there yet to try it, but it is definitely on my list. Summer festivals are perfect little venues for some really great food. Every summer my mom and I would hit every chicken barbecue we could find. She especially enjoyed the Hammonton blueberry festival, along with the Feast of Mount Carmel Festival there in July. I really love a good blueberry pie. Here is a great variation on the theme. I found it in an old Bon Appetit magazine. Just made it last night and it was even better for breakfast the next morning!

until sides are set. Filling: 1 cup sour cream 3/4 cup sugar 2 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour 1 egg, beaten 1/4 tsp almond extract 1/4 tsp salt 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberies Mix first six ingredients in a bowl to blend, mix in blueberries, spoon into crust. Bake until filling is set, about 25 minutes, then spoon topping over pie and bake until topping browns slightly, about 12 minutes. Cool pie to room temperature. Topping: 6 tbsp all-purpose flour 1/2 stick chilled unsalted butter cut into cubes 1/2 cup chopped pecans 2 tbsp sugar Use fingertips and mix flour and butter until small clumps form, mix in pecans and sugar. Spoon over cooked pie as directed above. I Jean Hecker is a full-time travel agent at Magic Carpet Travels and a part-time foodie.

Home Water Conservation Always a Good Idea
By Jeff Feldman It has been a rainy spring and start of summer, which makes it easy to forget that much of the nation is still gripped by drought and that a dry summer or fall may await us. So what if your lawn browns a bit and local restrictions ban car washing from time to time, you may say. No cause for alarm, right? It always makes sense to conserve water. Everything we eat depends on water, too. Last years drought ravaged corn and soybean crops, sending food prices climbing into cloudless skies. Water is also essential for energy (think hydropower and power plant cooling), transportation (Mississippi River barges), forestry and ecosystem management, even tourism. Water is a pocketbook issue with far greater impact than dead grass and a dusty vehicle. Water is a vital and increasingly scarce resource. We can all do better at conserving it. Here are ways to reduce water use (and save money) at homesome simple, and some more involved. Know where the water goes: The average four-person U.S. household uses 400 gallons a day. Nearly 30 percent is literally flushed down the toilet. Another 20+ percent goes to wash clothes, and 17 percent goes to bathing. A free online water consumption calculator

(www.saveourh2o.org/water-use-calculator) guides you through your own home water usage audit: Cost? Free! Stop the flow: Turning off the faucet ment you first heard from your grandmother. Such Depression-era wisdom applies today. Dont let the water run when doing dishes, shaving or brushing teeth. Take shorter showers. Run only full loads in the washing machine and dishwasher. A little awareness can save a lot of water: Cost? Free! Stop those leaks: An astounding 13 percent of an average homes water is lost via plumbing leaks! A small drip can add up to big waste. To see if youve got leaks, record the reading on your water meter. Stop using water for two hours, then check the meter again. If it shows water use, youve got a leak to find. Check toilets firstthey can waste 200 gallons daily. To test, put some food coloring in the toilet tank. Wait 30 minutes. If the food coloring appears in the bowl, the tank is leaking. Cost? Finding leaks, free. Plumbing repairs extra. Replace wasteful plumbing fixtures: Replacing old faucets and showerheads with water-saving fixtures allows you to conserve without even thinking about it. Ideally, you want no more than a 1.5 gallons-per-minute (gpm) flow rate for bathroom sinks and 2 gpm for showerheads, says the EPAs WaterSense Program (www. epa.gov/WaterSense. You can measure each fixtures gpm easily with a timer and graduated container. Turn the water on; collect

for 15 seconds; then multiply that amount by four to find gpm flow rate. Cost? Measuring flow, free! Altering or replacing fixtures: $1.50 for a faucet aerator, $100+ for a new faucet, $20 for a showerhead. Replace worn-out water hogs: Replacing old toilets, washing machines, and dishwashers with more efficient ones can offer big water savings. Older toilets, for example, use 3.5 gallons per flush while newer dual-flush models can use just 1.1 gallons per flush. Compare water-saving features when shopping. Cost? $20 for a dual-flush toilet conversion kit; under $1,000 for new washers and dishwashers. Water your lawn less: Almost onethird of all U.S. residential water use7 billion gallons dailygoes to landscape irrigation. To cut back, lose the lawn and plant a less thirsty, native plant landscape. Not ready for that? Then consider how you irrigate your Kentucky Blue. Apply just one inch of water weekly, early in the morning to reduce evaporation. Or water with collected rainwater; its far cheaper than municipal water. A simple rain barrel or rainwater capture system, like the Rain Xchange (rainxchange.com) does the job. Cost? Rain barrels can be found and rigged up for free. Rainwater capture systems can cost several thousand dollars. Install a Graywater system: Graywater systems recycle water from sinks and showers for irrigation or to flush toilets. Such systems require re-plumbing water drain lines. Local health authorities may restrict graywater systems, so check your local codes. For more graywater info, visit oasisdesign.net/greywater/index.htm. Cost? Several thousand dollars. Water is precious and scarce. Saving it is commonsense. While your individual efforts may seem a mere drop in the bucket, the combined efforts of many makes a sea of difference.

Student Artists Display at D'Ippolito School

A variety of artistic efforts by Vineland Public Schools' elementary students was on display April 26 at the district's 15th annual art show, which attracted an overflow crowd of students, parents and family members. The displays included works created by students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Schools represented included Barse, host D'Ippolito, Durand, Johnstone, Mennies, Petway, Sabater and Winslow. The Woman's Club of Vineland again had the challenging task of reviewing the artwork to determine winning pieces. June Lang, club president, presented certificates and gift cards from Michael's (crafts store) for first, second and third place winners from each school. First-place cards were worth $50, second place cards $25 and third-place cards $15. The 19 students in the Winslow Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Lesley Hammer, music teacher, opened up that portion of the program with renditions of the National Anthem and "Don't Stop Believing". Winners were as follows: Barse - Anastazia Gonzalez, first place; Aries Rivera, second place; and Christopher Miranda, third place; D'Ippolito - McKenna Sholominsky; first place; Melissa Perez; second place, and Jayleis Torres, third place; Durand - Alexya Dent, first place; Mosayet Guman, second place; and Abigail Tomasso, third place; Johnstone - Lucero Bautista, first place; Kateryna Pasichuyk, second place; and Karreleen Rodriguez, third place; Mennies - Uriel Robledo, first place; Valerie Harris, second place; Natasha Ortiz, third place; Petway - Ashley Parrish, first place; Zara Elahi, second place; Nathaniel Marrero, third place; Sabater Millie Mertinez, first place; Odalis Darantes-Ramos, second place; Nataly Arreola, third place; and Winslow - Christian Carlo, first place; Kathryn August, second place; and Franco Sieri, third place.
