Third Friday: Much to

See and Do in Millville

Many immigrant workers rely on worker transport, and its a valuable

service to local farmers and other employers. { BY BLAKE CHRISTY }

Elizabeths job is to connect workers who have no drivers license with

the employers who need them. A licensing program would permit
migrant laborers to obtain a drivers license and therefore create an
accountability system. Four counties, Cumberland included, are supporting the State legislation, a bill that is not without its critics.

this 7-Eleven is about as busy as a rest stop on

And, this is Elizabeths and her passengers daily routine. She picks them up bright and early, they grab lunch
at the 7-Eleven, they go to work on the farm or wherever
they are needed, and then, when the day is done, she
takes them home. These three guysHector, Salvador
and Salvador need Elizabeth because she, as a legal U.S.
citizen, has what they cannot havea drivers license.
As illegal immigrants, they do not have the opportunity to secure a drivers license. In order to get a drivers
license in New Jersey, you must have six points of identificationsix points that an illegal alien would not have.
But with more than 11 million illegal immigrants living in
the United States, having unlicensed drivers on the road
is a big concern.
In New Jersey, we are dealing with over 450,000
undocumented immigrants who are living in the shadows, says the program coordinator of the NJ Alliance for
Immigrant Justice, Johanna Calle. The reality is that

Expanding from one day a week to
Monday through Friday bus trips to the
Christiana Care network, which includes
the Helen Graham Cancer Center and

Littoral Society Promotes Free

Rain Barrel and Water Audit
For Delaware Bayshore program director Emma Melvin and her colleagues with
the American Littoral Society, its all about
being proactive in their communities
throughout Cumberland County.
Thats why Melvin and her Youth
Corps team were in Bridgeton on August 5
doing clean-up work at key neighborhood
spots such as Johnson Reeves Playground
in the Milltown section of Bridgeton.

In addition to the trash clean-up,

Melvin and colleague Meredith Brown,
conservation coordinator with the Littoral
Society, are reaching out to residents and
businesses offering free water audits.
The water audit assesses use of water
in the home or business, and offers strategies to reduce water use through a free
report that highlighting solutions. Some
completing the audit could receive free
conservation fixtures as well.
The audit means that people can save
money through enhanced conservation
while helping to conserve a one of our
most critical natural resources, namely the
water in our aquifers.
I encourage everyone to do this free
audit; it helps save money on water bills.
More importantly its part of taking the
right steps to preserve our water supply
and in a time of climate change this is critical, said Bridgeton Mayor Albert B. Kelly.
Melvin and Brown are also offering
businesses free rain barrels to capture
storm water from roofs and gutters. The
only thing a business needs is an accessible rain gutter on their building and some
type of re-use like flower planter boxes,
gardens, lawns, car washing, and other
non-potable water uses.
To set up a water audit or inquire about
getting a rain barrel, contact Emma
Melvin with the Littoral Society at 856825-2174 or via e-mail at emma@littoral

they are here so, the idea behind the
licensing program is that everyone who
goes through it will be insured, will be
tested, and now we have peoples driving
records, and we can create an accountability system that we currently do not have.
And without this reform we will continue
to not know who is living in our communities.
The New Jersey Safe and Responsible
Drivers Act (A4425 and S2925) was proposed in the New Jersey Legislature on
December 10, 2015, to do just what Calle is
advocating. Fifteen mayors have signed on
in support of statewide legislation, including Bridgetons Mayor Albert Kelly and
Vinelands Mayor Bermudez. Twelve cities
and towns, and four counties, have passed
resolutions supporting the bill,
Cumberland County included. But, even
with so much support, the legislation was
pushed over to this years session, because
many felt the bill needed more review.
Currently, A4425 and S2925 are being
reviewed by the Assembly Homeland
Security and State Preparedness
Committee and the Senate Transportation
Committee, respectively.
Just because Elizabeth is safely driving
unlicensed immigrants to work does not
mean that there are not still many immigrants driving without a license and insurance every day. Twelve states have already
regarded this reality as problematic and
have implemented licensing for illegal
New Mexico is one of those states, and
they have seen economic and security
benefits from the program. The Economist
reported that since New Mexicos issuing
of licenses to illegals in 2003, between
2002 and 2010 there was a 23-percent
decrease in traffic deaths. And, over the
course of 10 years, the number of uninsured drivers in New Mexico dropped
from 33 percent to 9 percent.
Having more insured people in the
state of New Jersey would bring total
insurance premiums down. The New
Jersey Policy Perspective estimates that
this program would bring in $245 million
in insurance payments. They also calculate that the state would be able to collect
about $21.7 million in license, permit, and
new registration fees.
Critics of the bill argue that processing
license applications and reaching out to
immigrants will also create a cost to the
state of New Jersey. Beyond the cost to
society, some argue that providing drivers
licenses is a slippery slope towards full
citizenship for illegal immigrants.
We do not want to endorse their illegal status in our country, says former
Cumberland County Freeholder and
staunch critic of the legislation Sam
Fiocchi. The bottom line is that it is a
privilege of a U.S. citizen to drive.

In the meantime, Elizabeth is still driving around Bridgeton every day picking up
passengers at street corners and shopping
centers in downtown Bridgeton. Her
phone rings about as often as one would
imagine a big-time Hollywood agents
phone would ring. It makes sense that it
would, because she is kind of like a talent
agent; but rather than representing Brad
Pitt and driving a Ferrari, Elizabeth represents migrant workers and sports an old
Chevy van.
The undocumented immigrants may
need Elizabeth to get to work, but as
Elizabeths phone continues to ring, it
becomes obvious that she is providing an
essential service to local farmers and
other employers as well. I

get screened for lung cancer.
Screening is done via low-dose
CT scan. The test is covered by
Medicare, as well as by most
private insurance plans.

vincing evidence (not beyond a reasonable

doubt) that the dog killed a person, or
caused serious bodily injury, or has engaged
in dog fighting activities, unless the dog was
provoked. If the court declares a dog to be
vicious, the dog shall be destroyed in a
humane and expeditious manner.
A municipal court shall declare a dog to
be potentially dangerous if it finds by
clear and convincing evidence that a dog
caused bodily injury to a person during an
unprovoked attack and poses a serious
threat to humans, or if a dog severely injured
or killed another domestic animal and poses
a threat of serious bodily injury to others or
other domestic animals, unless the other
animal is proved to have been the aggressor.
If a dog has been declared potentially dangerous (as opposed to vicious), the court
shall issue an order along with a schedule
for compliance ,which requires the owner of
the dog to do the following:
1. To apply and pay for a special municipal potentially dangerous dog license,
which includes a red identification tag and
a registration number that must be tattooed
upon the dog in a prominent location;
2. To display in a very visible location, a
sign on the dog owners premises warning
that a potentially dangerous dog lives there.
The sign must be visible and legible from
50 feet of the house; and
3. To immediately erect an enclosure for
the potentially dangerous dog on the owners property. This structure must be
securely locked at all times preventing the
dog from escaping and if taken out of the
enclosure, the dog must be muzzled and on
a leash that extends no more than three feet
from the owner. The court may also require
the owner to maintain liability insurance in
an amount determined by the municipal
court and listing the local municipality as a
named insured on the policy.
In addition, the owner of a vicious or
potentially dangerous dog must pay any and
all expenses related to impounding the dog.
Lastly, the owner of a potentially vicious or
dangerous dog will also be subject to a fine
of up to $1,000 plus court costs.
Dog owners should be aware of the consequences and penalties they face should
their dog attack another person or domestic animal. Likewise, all residents need to
know what to do after they or one of their
loved ones have been attacked by a dog. I

or more than 20 years, my law

practice has focused substantially
on criminal defense/municipal
court, as well as personal injury
law. In that capacity, I have been on both
sides of the fence in representing victims of
dog bites and their families in personal
injury cases, as well as defendants charged
criminally in municipal court as a result of
their dog attacking someone. It never ceases to amaze me how avoidable the events
can be if dog owners exercised more control over their dogs, and if they were aware
of the penalties they face for failing to do so.
What most dog owners do not realize is
that New Jersey is a strict liability state when
it comes to legal liability for damages inflicted by dogs. That means, under N.J.S.A. 4:1916 the owner of a dog that bites a person
while that person is on public property or
lawfully on private property, shall be liable
for damages. Unlike most other personal
injury cases, the injured party does not have
to establish negligence to recover. The mere
fact that they were bitten by the dog is sufficient to sustain liability against its owner.
This is true even if the dog had never previously shown a propensity to bite humans.
When a persons dog attacks another
person, the animal control officer (ACO)
for the town in which the attack occurred
should be contacted immediately. These
individuals are experts at investigating and
documenting dog bite cases. In fact, New
Jersey law requires that every town or
municipality employ an ACO or, at the very
least, have an ACO on call through a contract with an outside private agency.
N.J.S.A. 4:19-19 requires that an ACO shall
seize and impound a dog when the officer
has reasonable cause to believe the dog
attacked a person and caused death or serious bodily injury, poses a serious threat to
persons or other domestic animals, or
engages in dog fighting activities. The dog
shall be impounded until the final disposition has been made by the municipal court
as to whether the dog is vicious or
potentially dangerous.
The ACO must also confirm whether or
not the dog is registered and is up to date on
its rabies and inoculation shots. The ACO
should also find out whether there have
been other attacks by this particular dog
and he/she should also take photographs of
the scene and the victims injuries, as well
as statements from any eyewitnesses.
The municipal court shall declare the
dog vicious" if it finds by clear and con-

Our summer interns, Alexa Carini and Blake Christy, are heading back to college

of local folks on various topics. To view video of the interviews, visit
Whatdya think about the candidates and issues in this years presidential election?

You watch the candidates

and hear everything and its
very scary. So, I am a little
nervous about what is going
to happen. Too much of
Trump is what he would like
to do with no real solutions,
concrete solutions. I want to
have concrete solutions presented to me of what he
can do.
Doug McMahon

I would drift towards

Hillarys side a little bit
because the topics are
more grounded while
Trump, hes more of an
edgy type and Im trying to
get a secure candidate to
lead our country. This is my
first election and its a very
important one. Obama was
a good candidate [in 2012],
and he supports Hillary, so
thats a plus.

Alexa and Blake, above, visited

Bottinos Millville ShopRite last
week and asked shoppers what
they think of the candidates for
President of the United States.

Its hard to pick between

two different people who
some may view neither one
is suitable or, I dont know,
its just rough, its a rough
one. I have to do a few
more fact-checking items.
Theres always obviously
the third party, but I
havent looked too much
into that route yet. But, it
will be done soon.

The Democratic Party in

general, I think is more
responsive to the needs of
the electorate. The most
important issue is that the
narcissistic megalomaniac,
Donald Trump, doesnt get
elected. I think hes very
dangerous for our nation.
He seems not to understand
at all the nature of our

John Hickey

Marianne Russell

James Tankard

Jill Stein, whos with the

Green Party ... was on 80
percent of the ballots [in
2012] but wasnt allowed to
be part of the process. She
demonstrated with her VP
candidate outside of the
debates, and they arrested
her. So the next day I was
looking in the news... the
news never picked it up....
The American people dont
get a lot of choices with the
media we have today.

{ 12 } the grapevine | AUGUST 17, 2016

Paul Long

Honestly, I think both [candidates] kind of suck in

their own different ways.
But, I guess I would probably have to go Trump over
Hillary. I feel like the middle
class will benefit more from
Trump. I feel like Hillary is
kind of in it for herself from
what Ive seen.
Kyle Hofflinger

I favor Trump a little more,

because Hillary lies too
much. I agree with Trump,
theres a lot of things I
agree with him [on], immigration for one. [Clinton] is
receiving a lot of money
from different places. With
secretary of state, shes
receiving millions and millions of dollars from the
rich people. Thats one of
the reasons that Im not
voting for her.

Im kind of disappointed.
Donald Trump seems to say
things that I dont want to
see in a president. I think
hes disrespectful. This
episode with the Gold Star
family, I think hes pretty
despicable. [With] Hillary
Clinton, I saw a lot of the
good things she did and I
think shes taken a lot of
heat because people like
Donald Trump dont like
strong women.

Arnie Armstrong

John Lupton

Ill go for Hillary Clinton. I

hope she abides by what
she says, to help us all. God
loves us all and we should
all come together as one.
Just come together, you
know, and build buildings
for our homeless and stuff.
So you help out everyone.

To be honest, Im having a
hard time caring. Theres
too much he-said-she-said
going on and its actually
confusing the real points
that people are trying to
make.... I dont care that soand-so did something 20
years ago.

de Hirsch Fund and the Jewish

Colonization Association, which financed
the Woodbine settlement.
In July 1891, the Baron de Hirsch
Foundation purchased the Woodbine tract
with the exception of property belonging to
Nathaniel Holmes, which was located near
the railroad station. Dorwart reports that
Hirsh L. Sabsovich was then hired to
superintend the establishment of a Jewish
colony in the northwestern corner of Cape
May County. The de Hirsch Fund subsidized the colony, allowing it to survive
despite Dennis Townships refusal to use
tax monies to improve roads or public
It didnt take long for the new settlement
to establish itself. Within several years, it
had developed as a town and a manufacturing community and was poised for continued growth. In an appraisal by RussianJewish writer Vladimir Korolenko in 1893,
Woodbine was called the city of the future,
an American embryo of the Jewish city, citing 30 houses, 66 farms, a coat factory, two
schools, a post office and a hotel.
The Woodbine Manufacturing
Company, established by a group of
investors in the New York City textile
industry, was added in 1894 along with the
Baron de Hirsch Agricultural College,
which according to online sources, was an
institution of progressive education that
garnered a series of prestigious awards. It
closed during World War I, a frame of time
during which Woodbine reshaped itself
from an agricultural community to one of
Woodbine was incorporated March 3,
1903, and soon after would be called,
according to The American Monthly Review
of Reviews, "the first self-governing Jewish
community since the fall of Jerusalem. In
yet another nod to Charles K. Landis, Cape
May County New Jersey: The Making of an
American Resort Community sums things
up by declaring that Woodbine became
the most ambitiousand in the short run
most successfulJewish-American agricultural and industrial colony in the United
States. It presented the same quasi-utopian
vision that drove the [Lake family] in Ocean
City and Charles K. Landis in Sea Isle City
as they sought to provide an escape from
industrial machines and urban decay by
establishing planned, healthful communities in rural Cape May County.I


t wasnt often that new southern

New Jersey communities were given
a helping hand by Charles K. Landis
but, in the case of Woodbine, thats
exactly what happened. While Landis was
known for establishing his own settlements
like Hammonton, Vineland and Sea Isle
City, he became involved early on in the
development of this Cape May County
community in 1891.
According to Jeffrey M. Dorwart in his
book Cape May County New Jersey: The
Making of an American Resort Community,
a new community formed on the mainland at Woodbine, the wilderness stop on
the West Jersey Railroad three miles north
of Dennisville. Over six hundred Jewish
immigrants from eastern Europe moved to
Woodbine during the last decade of the
nineteenth century. The founding in 1891 of
the Russian Jewish colony made Cape
May County an integral part of the mass
immigration movement to America. Driven
out of eastern Europe by a combination of
severe social and economic conditions and
anti-Semitic pogroms, hundreds of thousands of Russian, Polish, Rumanian,
Austro-Hungarian and German Jews emigrated to the United States during the late
19th century.
Many Jewish immigrants settled in New
York, Philadelphia and other urban areas
and became, in Dorwarts words trapped
in festering tenement districts. Baron
Maurice de Hirsch, a wealthy Jewish
industrialist and banker and his foundation began to resettle the immigrants in
rural locations, including southern New
Cape May County New Jersey: The
Making of an American Resort Community
reports that Landis contribution to the
new settlement was restricted to the planning stage, but it was significant nonetheless. Landis provided a blueprint to
Woodbines planners for the wide boulevards and building lots that he had used
earlier with success to lay out Vineland in
Cumberland County, Dorwart writes.
The original Woodbine town plan had
been prepared by Jeremiah van Rensselaer
and William S. Townshend for the Cape
May and Millville Railroad, but the final
design adopted by the Jewish-American
leaders of the colony followed the plan that
Landis gave in March 1891 to Mayer
Sulzberger, a leading trustee of the Baron

Chicken BBQ

(Make this cake with any fresh berries

you wish.)

Farm Market/

For the topping:

Grated zest of a half lemon
6 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. (225 g) granulated
4 cups fresh blueberries or other fresh
3 tbsp. confectioners sugar

Heat oven to 350'F. Oven rack should be

in the middle of the oven. Butter and flour
a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
To make the cake: Stir the flour, baking
powder, and salt to combine; set aside. Beat
the butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer set on high speed until smooth.
Add the sugar and beat until light in color
and texture, about 3 minutes. One at a time,
beat in the eggs, then the vanilla. On low
speed, in two additions, beat in the flour
mixture. Beat in the lemon juice and zest.
Spread evenly in the pan. Bake until
golden and the top springs back when
pressed in the center, about 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and toss berries
with confectioners sugar, then spread the
berries over the cake. Set aside while making the meringue. Increase the oven temperature to 450F/230C.
To make the topping: Clean the mixer
beaters well. Beat the egg whites with the
mixer on high speed in a grease-free, large
bowl until they form soft peaks. Gradually
beat in the sugar until the whites are stiff
and shiny. Spread the meringue evenly over
the blueberries. Bake cake until it is lightly
tipped with brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool
completely on a wire cake rack. Enjoy! I

ur family has always had a dog.

When Mom and Dad were first
married, they had a black
Cocker Spaniel named Butchie,
and when we were kids we had a blonde
Cocker Spaniel named Taffy. After that we
had several Springer Spaniels all named
Missy Joy. All had their own personalities
and temperaments, and we loved them all.
When I got my own house, I adopted a
blonde Cocker Spaniel from the SPCA that
I named Richie and later on got another
dog, a Springer Spaniel that I still have. She
has been to a few vets and her chronic
issues have always been allergies manifesting themselves in constant itching and
scratching. Every night when I came home,
she would sit in front of the TV and just
scratch and scratch and it made me a
wreck. I tried everything to no avail.
Finally, I took her to the Buena Animal
Clinic on Oak Road in Vineland and miracle of miracles, Dr. La Torre prescribed a
new pill that has totally eliminated her
I guess it just takes perseverance to
solve most problems and most of all the
resolve not to give up. Thank you, Dr. La
Torre, and the entire staff of the clinic. I
even took my outside cat there for an upper
respiratory problem and Dr. Cat fixed her
right up, too. If you are going to have pets,
then youve got to take care of them.
This months recipe reflects the spirit of
perseverance because if you want something great, then you have to work for it.
And this recipe is certainly worth the
