Charting a New Course

What's next for the Landis MarketPlace?

Landis Marketplace continues to operate now that the Amish have

packed up their buggies and moved on. Russell Swanson (inset) discussed the strategy for positioning downtown Vineland to rebound at
a recent address to the Rotary Club.

hen life gives you lemons, make lemonade...or

so goes the proverbial phrase. At one time or
another, we all get our share of lifes lemons.
It's what we do with them that counts. We can opt for
bitterness, or we can create our own unique recipe for
the world's sweetest lemonade. Main Street Vineland
recently got a big delivery of lemons when the occupants of the Amish Market portion of the Landis
Marketplace called it quitsmore than a year before
their contract was due to be up. City officials and local
store owners now have some big decisions to make.
While they may not have all the answers just yet, I can
assure you that they are big fans of lemonade.
The five remaining Marketplace businesses also
appear to be fans. In fact, they are getting something
they've wanted for a long timea longer work week.
Beginning last week, the Marketplace extended its hours
by adding Wednesdays to its former Thursday through
Saturday schedule. The Marketplace is now open from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
The vendors have wanted to add days for some time
now, so they are happy to finally see it happen, said
Russell Swanson, executive director of Main Street
Vineland and the Vineland Improvement District.
Swanson also said that some of the remaining vendors,
like Frank Spataro, who owns the pizzeria, are taking
advantage of the newly available space to expand.
At the same time, the Vineland Developmental
Corporation (VDC) and City of Vineland officials are
hard at work charting a new course for the Landis
Marketplace and are expected to provide some clear
direction within the next few weeks. Currently, discussions are underway about the possible purchase of the
Marketplace building at 631 East Landis Avenue.
The City has always wanted to maintain control of

7 Back-to-School Tips
Parents: Do your
homework now
to ease transition
to school days.

Moriah Parmer is heading

off to Kindergarten
at Cumberland Christian
School and is modeling
her new uniform and

oing back to school brings a mix of

emotions; the end of summer is bittersweet, the start of a new school year
can be both exciting and stressful. Here are
some tips for making that transition as smooth
as possible.


Get a good attitude.

"What I've learned over the years is to instill
the value of education. I don't expect all As,
just to do their best," says Judy Parmer, mom
of five. Her eldest, Maeghan, just graduated
from Cumberland Christian School (CCS) in
the top 10 percent of her class; her youngest,
Moriah, heads for Kindergarten this year to join
three siblings. "These are skills for life. School
matters. Our job when we go to work is to do
our best. Their job is to be a full-time student.
You go and apply yourself every day."

2. Motivate your kids.

Andrea Foster, 4th grade teacher at The
Ellison School, and mom of two at Ellison, says
the key is figuring out what motivates her kids

From Noon til Sold Out

ealtors will tell that you its

location, location, location.
Politicians will tell that you its
recognition, recognition, recognition. Of course, the politicians would
first have to form a search committee,
then conduct polls and then couch their
answer in politically correct rhetoric that
leads you around and around in circles.
Which kind of explains why the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump is
doing so well.
Most pundits, when Trump first
announced he was entering the crowded
race to become the Republicans candidate,
dismissed the idea as just another one of
The Donalds attention-grabbing schemes.
He would, the experts assured us, go
down in flames as soon as the media started asking him the hard questions.
And that certainly seemed to be the
case as the liberal media immediately took
exception to his remarks about the flood
of illegal immigrants crossing our borders.
Just about everybodyor at least everybody who wanted to get on TV or in the
newslabeled him a bigot.
That, they assured us, would be the end
of Trumps candidacy. Wrong.
Turns out that the good old Silent
Majority of the Ronald Reagan years
mostly agreed with Trump. Maybe not
with everything he said, or how he said it,
but with the sentiment.
There is something terribly wrong with
our immigration policies but all the politicians have done so far is dance around it
because they recognize the growing political clout of Hispanics.
Nobody who wants to hold public
office is going to offend a sizable voting
block like the Hispanics.
Well, seems to me that the first lesson
Trump has taught us is that people want
some dialogue on serious issuesand immigration reform is certainly a serious issue.
The experts are still shaking their heads
over how quickly that whole storm blew
over for Trump, who came out for the man
on the street as the only guy who will talk
honestly about tough issues.
Then Trump got in trouble for his
remarks about Arizona Senator John
McCain, a Navy pilot who was shot down in
Vietnam and spent years in a prison camp.
Trump said he preferred people who
didnt get captured and, of course, the

liberal media turned that into a Trump

attack on an American hero.
That went away pretty quickly, though,
as Trump wondered why McCain hasnt
done more to promote and protect the
men and women who serve in our armed
forces during his time in office.
And then came the polls.
Suddenly, Trump was the darling of the
He finished at the top or near the top
of every single poll. So far.
The thing about polls is that you can
skew them pretty much any way you
want, so I suspect that it wont be long
before the same polls (the small ones)
start to reflect the liberal medias bias
toward Trumps candidacy.
The major polls, however, probably will
continue to reflect the fact that many
Americans (the not-so-silent majority if
Trump is lucky) like the fact that someone
besides them is mad as hell and not going
to take it anymore.
The bottom line for Trumps chances,
and the thing that is going to keep him in
the race, is his name recognition.
He is better known that the
Kardashians; probably the most recognizable face in America. And he has been for
the last 30 or 40 years.
Hes JFK without the Boston accent.
And, just like Kennedy, he is liable to
change forever the way we handle our
Kennedy, most experts believe, was
style over substance. Most agree he lost the
debate with Richard Nixon if you heard it
on the radio. If you watched on TV (and
most people, including my family, did), you
probably thought Kennedy was the winner.
He was wearing the right makeup,
smiled more and seemed perfectly at
home in front of the camera.
Well, of all of todays Republican candidates, who do you think will be most
effective at generating sound bites and 15second visuals for the electronic media?
Proof of that came during last weeks
Every politician at that level is comfortable in front of cameras, but who got the
most attention after the fact?
Good or bad, politicians (and Caitlyn
Jenner) are the only people who still
believe there is no such thing as bad
publicity. I

I News in Brief
Red Cross Issues Urgent Call
for Most Needed Blood Types
The American Red Cross is facing a
looming shortage of the blood types most
needed by patients and is calling on eligible donors with O negative, B negative and
A negative blood to give now to prevent an
emergency situation. Blood donation
appointments can be quickly and easily
scheduled by using the Red Cross Blood
Donor App, visiting or
calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
Overall, blood donations in the Red

Cross Penn-Jersey Blood Services Region

have been approximately 2,085 fewer per
month in June and July this year than the
previous 10 months of the year. When
demand for the most needed types begins
to outpace donations, the Red Cross alerts
donors to help restock the shelves.
Type O negative is the universal blood
type and can be transfused to patients
with any blood type. Types B negative and
A negative can be transfused to Rh positive or negative patients. Eligible donors
are encouraged to donate double red
cellsa process where two units of red
cells are collected while most of the plasma and platelets are returned to the
donorwhere available.

Platelets and type AB plasma also

needed. Platelet donors and those with
type AB blood are also continually needed
to help ensure patients receive the lifesaving blood products they need. Plateletsa
key clotting component of blood often
needed by cancer patients, surgical
patients and bone narrow recipients
must be transfused within five days of
donation, so donations are constantly
needed. Donors with type AB blood are
urged to give blood or platelets to restock
the plasma supply. Type AB donors have
the universal plasma type, which can be
given to patients of all blood types.
Individuals who donated blood earlier
this summer may be eligible to donate

again and help patients like an expectant

mother at a Red Cross-supported hospital
who is currently receiving nearly 100 units
of blood products a week until she delivers.
Her need alone could add up to 1,100 units.

Sixteen Travel to Florida, Perform at Disney

While most students relax during the summer vacation, the performers from the Cumberland
County College Theater
Department in Vineland have used
the time to train for the performance of a lifetime.
Last week, the ensemble, alongside director Deborah Bradshaw,
traveled more than 1,000 miles to
Florida to participate in the Disney
Performing Arts program, and the
journey paid off. The 16 performers entertained Walt Disney World Resort guests with their song and dance
routine at Downtown Disney.
The theatrical performance included songs from the Off Broadway classic
Little Shop of Horrors. Among the songs performed were Suddenly
Seymour and Ya Never Know.
Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from all around the world apply
to perform each year as part of Disney Performing Arts at both the
Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Once selected, they are
given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of
theme park guests. Since the programs inception in 1955, millions of youth
performers have graced the Disney Parks stages.

Siwek is Rotary Club of Vinelands Newest Member

The Rotary Club of Vinelands membership roster
grew by one this month with the addition of Jim
Siwek, who works as a financial advisor for Edward
Jones located in Woodbury, NJ. While Rotary, like
most service organizations nationwide, struggles with
retaining and adding members, the Vineland club
remains one of the largest and most active in District
7640 representing southern New Jersey.
Siwek was sponsored for membership by Maureen
Simmons, a current member of the Vineland Rotary
Club. His mentor is longtime Rotarian, Ken Dondero.
Siwek was formally inducted into the club during a
luncheon meeting held earlier this month.
Siwek said that it was the service aspect of the club that first caught his attention. I have always participated in some kind of community service, particularly
with the American Red Cross, he said. I used to host blood driveswhen I was a
Starbucks store manager way back when. The club does great things for the area
and I look forward to being part of that.
Siweks induction ceremony took place on July 7, and was officiated by club
member, Ted Lane.

and getting them

involved. "I talk to
them about their
goals, what they
want to achieve this
year, and we write
them down. I talk it
up, amp it up. I
never take advantage of bundle supply packages
because just the act
of picking their own
things gets them energized."
Parmer agrees, "Moriah is beyond
tickled because she got to pick out her
bookbag. Mason got a new lunchbox. He
doesn't get a new one every year. For the
bigger ones, it is seeing friends, going
back to sports. It might be a new pair of
sneakers they can't touch until the first
day of school. It is different for every kid,
so find out what motivates them."
3. Talk through concerns.
Foster says, "We also talk about what
they are nervous about, really to alleviate
stress." As a teacher, she tries to downplay the beginning of the school year. "I
try to make it stress-free. As a teacher,
being a parent is the most helpful. I'm on
the same crazy train at the beginning of
the school year as them."
Joanna Centeno, an 8th grader in
Vineland's Applied Math and Science
Academy, says, "The thing I like to do
because it calms me down and it's fun is
to DIY all of my school supplies." She
uses pictures from magazines to decorate her supplies. It helps that this is her
second year in the Academy. "We will
have all the same teachers. I know what
to expect. I am a little worried about who
will be in my class, because I am with
the same class all day. And also who will
be on my bus." She plans to check the
school portal and reach out through
social media to connect with classmates
and those who will be on her bus.
4. Make sure they get sleep.
Joanna's mom, Maureen Roche, is a
Vineland Algebra 1 teacher. "Sleep is
important. Three weeks before school
starts, start paying attention to what
time the kids go to bed. You cant let
some kids charge their own devices in
their room. They are staying up too late
on the phone. They are all still growing
and need eight to 10 hours of sleep."
5. Establish a schedule.
The McCaslin home logistics resemble
a municipal airport. "There are three different bus times between 6:45 and 8:45,
then the drive to Vo-Tech at 11:45.
Theyre coming home three different
times between 2:15 and 4:15," says Diane
McCaslin, mom of 11 kids, eight in
Vineland Public Schools. "With a big
family, you have to be more organized.
You have to really ask for the help of the
big kids to support you and the younger

(Continued from cover)

The McCaslins, from left: Eliza, 10th grader;

Olivia, 1st; Jonathan, 2nd; Diane, mom;
Steven, 7th; Sophia, 6th,; David, 4th, and
Evangeline, 10th.

ones to all pitch in. They pack their

lunches the night before." McCaslin says
the uniforms make mornings easier.
"When they come home, I have them
unpack their lunch boxes and put their
backpacks in the dining room along the
front wall. I make a meal, so I have a
dinner ready at 4. They sit down and eat
in the kitchen, then they do their homework at the dining room table. There are
no electronics and they have to be quiet.
They stay there until they are done. If I
have running to do for after-school activities, the oldest one helps the younger
ones." Sometimes that involves quizzing
or reading aloud. "But for the most part
they are able to do it on their own. Then
I check and sign the agendas." The kids
have free time until a rolling bedtime
routine, starting at 7:30 and wrapping up
around 10.
Parmers challenge is school sports.
"I'm a stickler for bedtime, but with five
kids and more sports, you just have to
have a huge amount of flexibility if you
have diverse ages. If the kids arent getting to bed on time, it's because we
aren't getting home until 9 from a game,
not because we're watching TV."
6. Check summer assignments and review.
It is time to buckle down and wrap up
any summer homework. Parmer says,
"They do what they need to do in the
morning, get their work done. Then in
the afternoon, we swim, ride bikes, get
together with friends."
Roche says, "By the second week of
August, I have her working on it every
day. I learned the hard way. I model
meeting deadlines and pacing myself, but
they're kids. You have to say, 'This is the
time you're doing it.'" Roche also encourages parents to review math facts. "Do it
in the car on the way to the store." She
"They're competing against some other
kids in cyberspace. The kids like it."
7. Have fun.
Foster says she is mostly excited.
"Summer is great, but I thrive off of routine and my kids do as well. The beginning of a new school year is always an
exciting time at my house." I

Rise and Fall

of a Business
The Cumberland Nail and Iron Works peaked and
just 10 years later was on the auction block.
of the 1890s, jeopardized the Bridgeton
industry. An April 1892 article in the
Bridgeton Evening News reported the layoff
of 12 or 14 workers and the possibility of
more joining them. The article pointed out
that this was occurring on a national scale
with companies finding it difficult to compete with factories equipped to produce
wire nails.
Only 10 years after the company had
reached the peak of its accomplishments,
the demise of the Cumberland Nail and
Iron Works occurred. The company went
into receivership, a victim of changing
technology and economic downturn, and
the Bridgeton institution spent its final
weeks being prepared for auction just prior
to the onset of the 20th century.
The announcement that the
Cumberland Nail and Iron Works was
about to be sold reached the press during
the autumn of 1899. At the time of its closing, it was still the oldest of Bridgetons
According to Bill Chestnuts South Jersey
Magazine article, the auction took place at
Bridgetons Hotel Cumberland on North
Laurel Street in the early days of December
1899. Future Bridgeton mayor George H.
Hampton served as Special Master of
Chancery and H. L. Tyler was the real estate
auctioneer. The hundreds of people who
showed up that day ranged from bankers,
lawyers and merchants interested in what
was being offered to residents and onlookers watching the end of an era.
After a brief description of the property,
bidding began at $100,000. When no one
bid, it was then lowered to $90,000 and
then reduced to $80,000, then $75,000 and
finally $70,000, which caught the attention
of Frank M. Riley, a trustee for the first and
second mortgage bond holders of the failed
business, who placed the first bid. Minutes
passed without a challenge as Tyler
scanned the crowd for signs of any other
interest. When it was obvious there would
be none, he slowly and reluctantly declared
Riley the winner. What had taken eight
decades to build into a local institution
ended in a matter of moments in the chill
of a December morning. I

Calicivirus on the Rise

The Calicivirus has been reported at an
increasingly high frequency in the
Cumberland County area within the past
few weeks.
Calicivirus is a common respiratory
disease in cats; the disease affects the respiratory tract, as well as the mouth and
tongue, intestines, and musculoskeletal
system. Symptoms include loss of
appetite, discharge in eyes and nose,
ulcers on tongue, nose, lips, pneumonia,
difficulty breathing, arthritis or painful
walk, fever, and bleeding. Symptoms typically appear suddenly and can vary in
severity. Veterinary assistance is usually
required along with medication.
This virus is not able to infect humans
or other animals, but it can become very
serious, very quickly for cats, especially
Calicivirus tends to lead to outbreaks
due to its highly contagious nature. The
virus can be spread by direct contact from
one infected cat to the other, or it can
spread on clothing, food dishes, bedding,
and other objects with which cats are likely to come in contact. According to the
Cumberland County Health Department,
isolating cats that may be or are infected is
the best practice to stop the spread and
prevent the disease. Good cleaning and
hygiene are also necessary.
The health department said that vaccination for the Calicivirus is the best pre-

City of Vineland credentials to identify
themselves. New Jersey regulations
require municipalities to conduct a canvass of all dogs owned, or kept harbored
within their boundaries, at least once
every two years. Municipalities, however,
may opt to conduct the canvass annually.
The Vineland Municipal Code further
requires that cats be included as well.
All dogs and cats in the city over the
age of seven months, or who possess a set
of permanent teeth, are required to be
licensed on an annual basis, said City of
Vineland Health Officer Robert
Dickinson. The annual due date for
obtaining your pet's license is March 31st
of each year. Owners found to be in violation of the ordinance will be issued a sumB
to appear in court.

he success of the Cumberland

Nail and Iron Works in
Bridgeton was swift and uncompromising. It grew into the
largest industry in the city and continued
its expansion.
In order to fulfill its orders, the
Cumberland Nail and Iron Works needed
a considerable amount of raw material.
The City of Bridgeton reports that, as of
1889, in a single year over 11,275 tons of
iron are used, at a cost of $202,950; 5,600
tons of iron ore, at a cost of $39,200;
15,750 tons of coal, at an outlay of
$63,000...The amount paid out for raw
material, labor, etc., approximates a half
million dollars annually, which is a sum
equal to the capital stock.
What had begun as a water-powered
industry, now added steam and electrical
power over the decades. Fifteen engines,
16 steam boilers, 90 nail machines plus six
welding furnaces filled the main factories.
Additionally, the company owned a steamer, christened Laura B., and two barges to
transport its products and bring in raw
The company seemed destined to enter
the 20th century as Bridgetons leading
industry, but the 1890s had other plans
unforeseen by Cumberland Nail and Iron
Under the guidance of the companys
founders, Benjamin and David, Reese, the
Cumberland Nail and Iron Works remained
one step ahead of changes in the industry.
Now, however, with both founders
deceased, the business was caught off-guard
by the introduction of new technology.
According to Bill Chestnuts highly informative South Jersey Magazine article The Rise
and Demise of the Cumberland Nail and
Iron Works, the production of cut nails, the
type produced by the Bridgeton factory, had
peaked in 1886 with 8.1 million kegs. Only
600,000 kegs of a new wire nail were produced that same year. By 1892, production
of the wire nail had slightly overtaken that
of the cut nail. In 1896, the production of
the cut nail trailed by 3.1 million kegs.
The Cumberland Nail and Iron Works,
however, had not prepared itself for these
changes as it had in the past. The advancing technology, along with the Depression

Since 1987


Individuals who are issued a summons

for having an unlicensed dog or cat will be
required to obtain the required license. If
you wish to challenge the summons, you
will be required to appear in court on the
date and time indicated on the summons.
If you do not wish to challenge the summons, you may bring your summons and
proof of licensing to the court and pay the
appropriate fine at the window. According
to court personnel, the fine payable without a court appearance required is
According to Vineland officials, there
are more than 70,000 domestic animal
bites in New Jersey every year, and we are
much more likely to be exposed to rabies
through contact with our pets than
through contact with wildlife. Studies
have indicated that when 60%-70% of the
dog and cat populations are vaccinated,
they act as an effective buffer between
rabid wildlife and humans.
We track rabies vaccinations through
licensing, Dickenson continued. Our
current estimate is that only 24% of the
owned dogs and 6% of the owned cats are
licensed in Vineland. These percentages
offer inadequate protection.
The fee for spayed or neutered pets is
$10 per animal/per year. The fee for pets
not spayed or neutered is $18 per animal/per year. For applications received
after March 31st, the fees increase to $13
and $21 per animal/per year. Proof of a
rabies vaccination valid through October
31st of the licensing year is also required.
If it expires prior to that date, the animal
must receive a rabies booster before a
license is issued. Owners of licensed animals entering Vineland from another state
must apply for a Vineland license within
90 days, and unlicensed animals entering
Vineland from another state must apply

for a Vineland license within 10 days.

"In addition to the danger posed by
rabies, most pet owners believe that their
companion is unlikely to get lost, said
City of Vineland Health Director Dale
Jones. Unfortunately, hundreds of pet
owners are wrong every year. Having a
current license displayed is his or her ticket home. The last thing we want are animals coming to the SPCA that have clearly
been cared for, but arrive with no identification and no way to return them to their
owner. Please do your part in helping to
keep your companions safe and by your
Applications for initial licenses are
available at the Department of Licenses
and Inspections, or online at<http://www.vinelan>. Applications may be submitted in person or by mail, and must be
accompanied by the appropriate fee and
documentation. If the application is submitted by mail, the required documents
will be returned to you when the license is
mailed. Be sure to make copies of all documents before mailing them.
For license renewals, you should
receive a renewal notice unless you have
moved and did not provide the city with
your new mailing address. License
renewals may also be submitted in person
or through the mail. Be sure to include
new rabies vaccination certificates if
required. Fees collected from pet licensing
help to support the cost of animal control
services and free rabies vaccination clinics
within the City of Vineland.

requirements in the City of Vineland,
please contact Robert M. Dickinson, City
of Vineland Health Officer at (856)7044000, ext. 4116. I

that building, said Robert Scarpa, Landis
Marketplace manager. The building owner
wasnt interested in selling in the past, but
may be now, which would be a great thing
for Downtown Vineland.
Scarpa sees a bright future ahead for the
Marketplace. The departure of the Amish
represents one failed business and the
opportunity for something new to take its
place, he said. There were many reasons
why the Amish werent successful in this
location, including a tough economy, the
opening of a new Amish Market in
Bridgeton, and the addition of a beautiful
new supermarket just down the road. Plus,
there are still people who dont want to
shop downtown for whatever reason. We
know that safety is a concern, but the
Downtown Vineland area is safe.


For area residents who still want the
opportunity to shop at an Amish Market,
Jonas King, owner of the Greater Bridgeton
Amish Market, welcomes you with open
arms. King opened his market in Hopewell
Township three years ago after closing up
shop in Baltimore, MD.
Like the Amish who were part of the
market in Vineland, we were in a city setting and it just didn't work for us, King
said. We used to think of it as a failure, but
not anymore. We know now that it was just
a very expensive education.
One of the things King learned is that an
Amish market lends itself to a country setting. We found that its easier for the city
people to come to the country than it is for
the country people to come to the city, he
said. We werent so sure at first, but things
are going very well. Everyone is so welcoming and eager to help, which means a lot.
The Greater Bridgeton Amish Market,
located at 2 Cassidy Court in Hopewell
Township, features a 22,000-square-foot
indoor building and lots of outdoor space

for hosting special activities and festivals. It

also features a full-service restaurant and
new furniture store.
Downtown Vineland and City officials
wish the Amish well, but are eager to move
on. We now have the opportunity to rebrand
and remarket the Landis Marketplace, said
Scarpa. Its important to remember that the
Marketplace is about much more than just

Missing the Amish? You dont have to go far to

satisfy your craving... The Greater Bridgeton
Amish Market in Hopewell Township offers
everything from handmade candy to furniture
and from fresh meats and seafood to baked
goods. Last weekends Peach Festival drew

Swanson has big ideas for Downtown
Vineland and recently added 17 new membersall between the ages of 18 and 50to
his planning teams. With 65.5 percent of

Vinelands population under the age of 50,

its time that we started adjusting our targets to include Gen Xers and millennials in
the process of determining whats next.
Members of the Millennial Advisory Board
will become part of the four teams that
comprise the Downtown Improvement
DistrictOrganization, Promotions,
Design, and Economic Restructuring.
In addition, the District recently hosted
a broker tour and has plans for special
Meet & Greets for merchants, a merchant
newsletter, a series of seminars, and is even
thinking about creating a Downtown
Vineland version of Shark Tank.
The idea would be to identify the kinds
of businesses we want for our downtown
and then invite them in to present their
plans, said Swanson. If we like what we
hear and they need some assistance getting
started, we can help with that. We want to
create and provide real opportunity here.



Despite changes affecting the
Marketplace, other businesses on Landis
Avenue continue to thrive. In fact, some
long-time businesses like Als Shoes,
DeSoto Jewelers and the Landis Diner are
doing better than ever, said Swanson. The
perception may be that theyre not, but
business is booming.
Brian Lankin, co-owner of Als Shoes is
grateful for the extra parking spaces since
the Amish Market closed. I dont think its
a coincidence that we had our best week of
the year last week, he said. People come
to the avenue for certain things and if they
cant find a parking place, they go somewhere else. Lankin said its hard to say
whats next for the Marketplace but is confident that it will be something good.
Things are in flux right now, but with
Russell Swanson, Sandy Forosisky and
Robert Scarpa involved, things will get
moving in the right direction.
If they dont, it wont be for lack of trying as the efforts underway to revitalize
Downtown Vineland are more aggressive
than ever.
Yes, losing the Amish Market was a
blow, but we now have the chance to start
over and start fresh, said Swanson. Others
have revitalized and so can we. Swanson
used the town of Culpeper, VA, as an example. Downtown Culpeper went from being
known as dead and dying with an 89 percent vacancy rate, to what is now a town
thats thriving and filled with arts, antiques
and restaurants, he said. Collingwood is
another example. Ten years ago no one
would think of going to Collingswood for
dinner. Today, it has a vacancy rate thats in
the single digits and a downtown thats
more popular than ever.

Finished Work
or Lees Blog?
Harper Lees second novel was delivered to
my Kindle upon its release date.

{ 24 } the grapevine | AUGUST 12, 2015

heres been a lot of buzz about

Harper Lee and her second book,
Go Set a Watchman, published
some 50 years after the first, the
Pulitzer Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird.
Most Twitter feeds and the reviews have
been less than complimentary.
Its sad.
First, it likely was not Lees idea to publish a second book. If it were, wouldnt she
have done so before now? The dedication
in each of the books is to her father and
recently deceased sister, Alice Lee, who
was the novelists confidante, housemate
and gatekeeper, not to mention a lawyer.
So it becomes curious that Harper Lee, 88
years old, having suffered a stroke and in
assisted living, would agree to something
that shed never agreed to before.
I do not lament that a second book has
been uncovered. I had it pre-ordered on
my Kindle and was looking forward to
reading it as much as anyone. I read To
Kill a Mockingbird as recently as a few
years ago when my daughter read it for a
school assignment. But I never planned to
hold Watchman up to the same standards
as the first published book.
That classic book is viewed differently
by different readers. For some, its a
sketch of the American South in the
Depression era. For others, its a commentary on racial injustice. For some, maybe
Lee included, its a coming-of-age story.
And according to sister Alice, its a love
story about a father and his children.
Go Set a Watchman is set in a time period some 30 years later than To Kill a
Mockingbird. Much had happened in those
30 years in this country involving civil rights.
And much had not.
Much has happened in civil rights (and
human rights) since then.
And much has not.
As a writer, I can relate to Lee in several respects. If I were to write a novel,
especially one in which the characters
were based so much on myself and people
around me, I, too, might want to let it rest.
But forever? Maybe.
All this makes me wonder how many of
the harsh comments about the second
book are from bloggers.
Computers and social media have

changed the way novelists and writers of

all stripes work. Writers of the Harper Lee
variety are few and far between these
days. Im talking about authors who
depend on time-honored editorial techniques, such as revise, revise, revise, and
who also rely heavily on their editors.
So could what were reading in Go Set a
Watchman be Harper Lees blog? Think
about it: If she never intended to share
these writings with the world, this then
becomes something elseher journal, a
series of writing exercises, her own personal grownup perspective on how things
might have played out for her characters?
After writing and publishing To Kill a
Mockingbird, perhaps Lee preferred to
journal. Was Lee a blogger ahead of her
time? It would be interesting to know how
many friends she shared her writings
with, or if she was an introverted blogger.
Lets face it, texting and blogging have
changed the way we write. Im all for
stream of consciousness as a writing style,
but not many writers can pull it off. Im
not one of them. This column, for example, has been four weeks in the making.
What Ive enjoyed most about Lees second published novel is the good solid prose
that has taken me to a time and place I
would not otherwise have experienced.
Yes, some of it is uglyScout is grown, no
longer seeing the world through the eyes
of a child, race relations in the South and
everywhere had changed in subtle and
not-so-subtle waysbut Harper Lee called
it as she saw it, I believe.
The first time around, she gave us a
happy ending. The second book takes
away that happy ending, or at least diminishes it. And in that respect, Watchman
may be more honest.
I took my time reading the book, as I
savored the journey.
Then, I heard about some unsatisfied
readers who demanded their money back.
Really? Give me a break!
There wont be too many more writers
who arent in a hurry to cash in. Or too
many more lost manuscripts found in attics.
We need not feel guilty about reading them.
However, we might treat them more
like we do our blogsand not be so quick
to judge the writers. I
