he pulls on the baseball uni-
form and takes the field. She
catches screaming line drives
and tricky ground balls. She
hears the roar of the crowd. She even
has her own baseball trading card.
She’s Kristina Brenner, 24, of
Vineland and she’s in her second year as
a ballgirl for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Ballgirls are stationed near the
stands down the left and right field foul
lines. They grab foul balls before they
can carom back onto the field and delay
the game. They also make personal
appearances and play charity softball
games throughout the region. It’s a lot
harder than it looks and takes a blend
of athleticism, sports knowledge, and
personality.
“When you’re on the field, you have
to have your A-game,” Brenner said
recently. “You have to really pay atten-
tion; they hit some really hard ones
down the line.”
Brenner, who also volunteers as a
coach for the Vineland High School soft-
ball team, was hired from a crowded, tal-
ented field of candidates—perhaps more
than 1,000. After submitting a video of
her talents plus a resume and personal
statement, she was one of only 100
picked for a tryout.
In the tryout, she had to field ground

DiTomo Memorial Unveiled
Anthony J. DiTomo, a renowned athlete, coach and athletic
director at Vineland High School, was memorialized with an
unveiling of a bronze plaque recently before an appreciative
audience of family, friends and a respectful group of VHS
musicians, vocalists and athletes. The memorial, located near
the baseball field at the VHS athletic complex that bears his
name, represents the completion of a project that began after
DiTomo's death in 2001. He retired in 1989 after a career that
spanned four decades.
"He may not be here today, but he lives in the memories we
have of him as a great athlete, educator and athletic director,"
said John A. Casadia Jr., a key member of the group that moved
the project from concept to reality in a few short months.
Casadia said the idea of honoring Mr. DiTomo with a
memorial was first discussed not long after Mr. DiTomo's death
by Charles "Chalky" Ottinger, then VHS principal, and former
athletic director himself, and Allan Bernardini, then a board of
education member.
Dr. Thomas McCann, VHS principal, said it was a "core"
group that stimulated new interest in the project, including
Casadia; Dane Barse, chairperson of the Vineland High School
Historical Committee; Bernardini; and Don Robbins, current
VHS athletic director. McCann said Casadia was "committed,

Cumberland County Has a
“Seat at the Table” at White
House Forum
Three weeks after participating in a White
House meeting for county officials with the
President, Vice-President and a number of
key cabinet members, Cumberland County
Freeholder Louis N. Magazzu served as a
panelist Thursday afternoon in a follow-up
national conference call.
The call, which involved county leaders
from across the nation, was the next step in
an effort by the White House
Intergovernmental Affairs Office to open up
dialogue with leaders of county governments.
Freeholder Magazzu was one of a small
handful of panelists chosen to offer opening
remarks on the core agenda topics. Magazzu
spoke on infrastructure and sustainability –
specifically on how there needs to be more
regional collaboration between counties,
municipalities and other agencies.
“We need more cooperation and less com-
petition for federal funds,” said Magazzu.
“Our constituents don’t care which jurisdic-
tion is getting the money or providing the
service, they just want to see results.”
Magazzu told White House representa-
tives and the other county leaders it’s time to
take advantage of regional models of econom-
ic development. “We need to remove silos
and work together.”
The White House is hoping the May 3rd
meeting in Washington and today’s call will
build a bridge between the White House and
local governments and make sure that the
voices of county officials are heard by senior
policymakers in the White House and across
the federal government.
At the May 3rd meeting, President Obama
spoke of the importance of county govern-
ment and highlighted his commitment to
winning the future by out-educating, out-
building, and out-innovating our competitors.
Topics on Thursday’s call included:
Poverty and Recidivism, Infrastructure and
Sustainability, and Health Reform and
Medicaid.
Hurricane Season
About to Begin
A hurricane begins as a tropical depres-
sion (a low pressure center). The system may
then develop into a tropical storm, and when
winds exceed 74 miles per hour, a hurricane.
Six Atlantic Hurricanes can generally
occur each year, during its season, which
runs from June 1st through November 30th.
As a hurricane approaches, skies will gradu-
ally darken and wind speeds will increase.
Barometric pressure will fall and torrents of
rain may be observed.
The Vineland Office of Emergency
Management offers the following tips to
increase safety and reduce property loss dur-
ing a hurricane:
• It is always a good idea to keep your
yard free of debris and items, which can be
tossed about by strong winds. Secure outdoor
furniture, trashcans and toys. Final prepara-
tions should be completed before heavy
winds and rain arrive.
• Fill your car’s gas tank and place car in
an area where it will not be damaged.
• Notify the Vineland OEM if you have
special needs. Special Needs Forms should be
filled out well in advance of an emergency.
This service is also available by dialing 211.
Residents can also register online at register-
ready.nj.gov.
• Develop an emergency supply checklist.
Sample preparation and supply lists are avail-
able by visiting www.fema.gov or
www.ready.gov.
• Stock up on a supply of wood for shutter-
ing windows, tools, batteries, non-perishable
foods, bottled water, prescription medicines,
first aid kits and battery powered radio. Don’t
forget to purchase a non-electric can opener.
• Do not go outside during the eye of the
storm. The calm will end rapidly and strong
winds will resume fromthe opposite direction.
• Charge all cell phones and other devices
which may be helpful during a power outage.
• Listen to area TVand radio stations for the
latest advisories. Be sure to follow the advice
offered by OEM and other agencies. The
information is offered in your best interest.
• Prepare a GO BAG in the event evacua-
tion may be necessary. Include 2-3 changes of
clothing, medications, baby and personal
items. Notify a friend or relative, who is not
affected by the weather conditions, where
you will be housed. OEM will advise you of
any home preparations you should take
before leaving your home.
• Make provisions for your pets. Only
service animals will be allowed into shelters.
OEM officials will inform you of temporary
animal housing when available.
• Avoid and report downed power lines
and other dangerous conditions. 911 should be
called when health and safety emergencies
exist.
Additional information for Vineland resi-
dents is available by calling 856-691-4540.

Salem County Welcomes Nancy C.
Gerrity as New Public Health Officer
Freeholder Director Lee R. Ware and Freeholder Dale
A. Cross, chair of the Public Health Committee,
announced that Nancy C. Gerrity has been hired as
Salem County’s Public Health Officer. Gerrity
replaces Herbert Roeschke, who retired in 2010.
“In the interim, Virginia Preesada from Gloucester
County filled the position so there was no disruption
of services,” said Director Ware. “She did a great job
and we appreciate her helping us out during the
search and time of transition. We are excited about
this new chapter for our Health Department.”
Gerrity previously served as the Public Health
Nursing Director of the Camden County Health Department. There she was
responsible for overseeing public health nursing programs, which included spe-
cialty clinics, special child health services, adult health services, and the non-pub-
lic school health program. Gerrity also has extensive experience in emergency
preparedness for bioterrorism and other public health threats and emergencies.
“Ms. Gerrity is a highly qualified individual with a Master of Science degree in
nursing from the University of Pennsylvania,” said Freeholder Cross. “The Public
Health Officer is a very important position for the people of Salem County and
her experience will be a tremendous asset in helping to ensure the health and
safety of our residents.”
The duties of the Salem County Public Health Officer include communicable
disease prevention and control, sanitation measures and inspections, child health
and immunizations, and inspection of food and drug establishments.
Durand Elementary to Hold
Fundraiser for Domestic
Violence Victim
On June 17, Marie Durand Elementary
is holding its third annual fundraiser in
honor of Sharon Parsons Bortle, a for-
mer teacher there who lost her life to
domestic violence several years ago.
Each year, the school holds a fundrais-
er to accrue funding for a scholarship
in Bortle’s name. The scholarship goes
to two graduating seniors at Vineland
High School who plan to pursue a
degree in education or journalism fol-
lowing graduation.
This year’s fundraiser will be a Red
Carpet Gala held at the Centerton
Country Club.
With very suc-
cessful turnouts
in the first two
years, the
fundraising event
has been able to
raise enough
money to award
$1,000 scholar-
ships to the two select students fortu-
nate enough to win the honor.
A Chinese auction will be held at
the event, and local businesses are
encouraged to donate items or gift cer-
tificates for the auction.
Sharon Parsons Bortle lost her life to
domestic violence a few years ago.
Birthday Wishes
Happy Birthday to our beautiful daughter, Sheba Joy
Parra, who will celebrate her 17th birthday on June 2.
Your smile always brightens up our lives. You mean the
world to us. We are so proud of the young lady you’ve
become. Keep being the sweet person that you are. XOXO
Love,
Ed, Mommy, Juliana and Chase

Dr. Louise Karwowski, Johnstone Elementary School principal, was recently as 2011

all former board members and superintendents, especially Dr. Valentine, who
hired me and gave me the opportunity to serve the children at Johnstone for 15
years," said Dr. Karwowski. "I want to thank every member of VASA. As a worker
in the field, our jobs are demanding and challenging but stimulating and reward-
ing. I want to recognize your efforts for creating environments in which the chil-
dren of Vineland can strive and achieve. I thank you. I will treasure this award."
Dr. Banks and every board member who spoke praised Dr. Karwowski for her
tireless efforts on behalf of the children of her school and the district at large.
Nominees for the Adminstrator of the Year award are judged on numberous
aspects of their profession, including leadership skills, innovation and creativity,

Local Hardware Store Manager Donates
Commemorative 9/11 Flags to City of Vineland
Tom Flebbe, store manager at the Vineland branch of Ace Hardware, recently
donated two commemorative flags to the City of Vineland. The two flags are a
memorial in remembrance of the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World
Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and the crash-
landing of a hijacked plane near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Both flags are replicas of the American flag with just a slight change. The
names of all of the victims of the attacks are located within the red and white
stripes of one flag. On the other, the names of emergency personnel and first
responders who perished in the line of duty on that day can be found within the
stripes.
When asked why he decided to donate the flags, which had been purchased
by the hardware store, Flebbe commented that he felt it was the right thing to
do, especially with Vineland City Hall already equipped with commemorative
beams taken from the Twin Towers, and located in the front lobby.
Another reason for the contribution was the fact that one of Vineland’s own
was affected closely by the attacks. Bob Adams, who works in the Code
Enforcement Division in City Hall, lost his son, Donald, who was working in one
of the Twin Towers, on the day of the terrorism attacks. Since then, Adams has
worked very closely with the Mayor’s office in trying to get memorials to those
directly affected by attacks installed at or around City Hall.
The flags are expected to hang in the front lobby, complementing the Twin
Tower beams and creating a unique way of remembering the attacks.
Another note: The flags Flebbe donated are not one-of-a-kind. Ace Hardware
bought quite a few of the flags, and they are for sale in the store now.

Manager Tom Flebbe pose with one of the flags donated to Vineland by Flebbe.

Berardelli Named New Principal at Delsea
Paul Berardelli has been named as the new principal
of Delsea Regional High School starting this fall. He
started his career at Delsea in 1992 as a substitute
teacher in the high school and then decided that he
loved working with students at Delsea. He took the
required coursework for a special education teaching
certificate from Rowan University and taught special
education for five years. He then received a master’s
degree in educational leadership from Wilmington
College in Delaware and became the high school’s vice
principal in 1998. In that position, he was responsible
for discipline and other student-related activities including designing the school’s
security and crisis drill plan. According to HS English teacher, Jessica Ippolito, “Paul
has been a highly-organized and efficient vice principal, so no doubt he will bring
those same positive qualities to his new role as principal.”
Originally, from Scranton, PA, Paul graduated from Villanova University in 1989
and spent several seasons playing professional football in Green Bay, Minnesota and
Philadelphia before moving to New Jersey. His original job in New Jersey in sales
was not his dream job and when he discovered the hidden treasure in students and
staff at Delsea, he knew that he had found his calling.
Berardelli stated, “I’m fortunate to have worked for respected administrators,
Mr. Borelli, Ms. Vanaman, Mr. Sottosanti and Mrs. Gravenor who have been great
role models and I’m looking forward to working with the phenomenal teaching staff.”
Delsea Girls Racing
to College
The Delsea Regional High School
girls’ track and field and cross
country teams will be well repre-
sented at a number of colleges in
the fall. Six members of these
teams have received either athlet-
ic or athletic/academic scholar-
ships competing in Division I,
Division II and Division III
schools. Janiece Rose (shot put)
will be attending Ohio University, a Division I school; Felicia O’Donnell, cross
country and track and field, will be attending Rutgers University, also Division I;
Brianna Hunt, track and field and high jump, will be attending St. Joseph’s
University, another Division I school. Meanwhile, Brianna Crofton, track and field,
will be at Georgian Court University, a Division II school, and Brenda Mendez and
Ashlee Hitchner will both be attending Rowan University, a Division III institution.

Vintage Vineland { VINCE FARINACCIO }
Pre-Presidential
Visit
Woodrow Wilson visited Vineland just two years
before he became President of the land.
S
hortly after Vineland turned 50 in
1911, the town was visited for sev-
eral days by New Jersey Governor
Woodrow Wilson just a mere two
years before he would become President
of the United States. Wilson’s sojourn to
Vineland was part of a statewide inspec-
tion of public institutions that included
three facilities in the borough. But
Wilson’s agenda was strictly business, a
fact he made painfully clear during one of
his stops in town.
On Wednesday, August 25, the Evening
Journal reported that Wilson was expect-
ed to arrive with his wife and daughter by
automobile the next day at noon. He and
his entourage, which would include New
Jersey philanthropist Caroline Alexander
of Hoboken, were to be received by the
head of the State Home for Women, Dr.
Madeline Hallowell. Arrangements had
been made for Laila, an operetta that had
already been presented in Vineland, to
have a repeat performance on Thursday
evening for the benefit of Wilson.
While Alexander was detained, the
Wilsons’ arrival was on schedule. The gov-
ernor spent Thursday afternoon inspecting
the Women’s Home, including the grounds,
and declaring that he was greatly pleased
with the institution. That evening, nearly
2,000 people joined the governor for the
performance of Laila, staged on the lawn of
the Women’ Home. Wilson appeared on
the platform to begin the event, addressing
the crowd with favorable comments about
what he had seen here and how pleased he
was with the facility that was hosting him
and his family. After his opening speech,
Wilson settled into what was reported as
an enjoyable performance of the operetta.
On Friday, the governor spent the
morning at the Women’s Home before his
visit to the Soldiers Home. The Veterans
institution and grounds were specially
decorated for the occasion with tents,
cannons, flags and flowers. Wilson con-
ducted a thorough inspection of the build-
ing and grounds, concluding his examina-
tion by commenting on how pleased he
was with the facility. Wilson then joined
the directors of the institution as well as
Vineland dignitaries such as E.R.
Johnstone, Judge R.P. Tuller and Philip P.
Baker for what the Evening Journal called
an “inviting” meal at one o’clock.
Following lunch, the residents of the
institution, many of them veterans of the
Union Army during the Civil War, gathered
in the audience room hoping the governor
would say a few words. In a moment that
remains inexcusable to this day, Wilson
thanked the director for the invitation but
said he had nothing to say to the men. The
Evening Journal reported the next day that
the veterans were “terribly disappointed.”
The remainder of Friday was filled with
the governor’s inspection of the Vineland
Training School as well as a graduation cer-
emony. The Evening Journal stated that
Wilson was especially interested in the
manual training work that was being con-
ducted by the school.
The commencement exercise, which
marked the completion of a summer pro-
gram in which teachers were trained in the
education of mentally challenged individu-
als, was held Friday evening. Fifty-eight
graduates from around the country and
Canada received their diplomas and said
their good-byes before returning home.
E.R. Johnstone, superintendent of the
Training School, seated Wilson and his
family on the platform to observe the pro-
ceedings. Johnstone had attended the
luncheon at the Veterans Home earlier in
the day, and was no doubt aware of how
Wilson had snubbed the residents of the
institution. It seems that he was deter-
mined to avoid similar treatment at the
commencement. As the Evening Journal
reported the next day, the superintendent
“smilingly told the audience that the gover-
nor would not consent to make an address,
but he had no doubt he would say a word
or two. Governor Wilson smiled and the
audience began to clap, and there was
nothing for him to do but say something.”
Wilson’s remarks praised Vineland
whose characteristic spirit, he said, “was
helpfulness to humanity.” He was gone the
next morning, having told the local press
that his Vineland inspection of buildings
and grounds left him “greatly pleased with
what I have seen.” If he had taken any
interest in each institution’s accomplish-
ments and its residents, he might have
been more impressed. I

Solution to last week’s puzzle
dedicated, and relentless" in having the
memorial project completed.
"This is a bittersweet afternoon," Casadia
said. "Bittersweet because it took us 10 years
to recognize the efforts of Mr. DiTomo. It
would be truly special if he were here today."
At first, Casadia said his relationship with
Mr. DiTomo was tense. "We really battled,
but as time went on, we became close
friends," he said. "I know he's smiling down
on us today."
Mr. DiTomo's sister, Mrs. Carmela
Sparagna, speaking on behalf of the family,
agreed. "I know he would be very, very
proud if he was here today," she said. "This
is beyond overwhelming."
Sparagna, Mr. DiTomo's only surviving
sibling, also said it was important that the
community "deemed him important enough
to give him this memorial and bring it to
fruition." Mr. DiTomo and his wife had no
children but during his career he touched
the lives of thousands of student athletes. A
sizable contingent of his family joined
Sparagna at the ceremony, including Francis,
her husband; niece Jacqueline Cheli, a dis-
trict assistant principal; niece Bernadett
Cervino, a teacher at Veterans Memorial
School and her husband Tom; nephew David
Cheli and his wife Lorelei; nephew Philip
Sparagna; nephew Tim Sparagna; niece
Danielle Sparagna;
nephew Joe DiTomo;
great-nephew
Christopher Tamarri;
great-niece Angela
Cervino; and great-
nephew John DiTomo
and his wife Jennifer.
Casadia told the fam-
ily that actual construc-
tion of the monument was made possible by
many members of the community. In partic-
ular, he cited the efforts of Fred and Lisa
Cristelli, owners of Lawn and Garden
Landscaping, and the family of James
Geraci. The Cristellis donated equipment
and labor for the memorial, including irriga-
tion and controls that will ensure the area
"always looks as beautiful as it does today,"
said Casadia.
Geraci, a generous donor to the project,
recalled the close friendship his father
shared with DiTomo over the years. The
memorial itself, a bronze plaque set in gran-
ite, is surrounded by a brick walkway. Sales
of memorial bricks in the walkway left a siz-
able surplus in the committee's fund, said
Casadia. The money will be used to pay for
athletic equipment and clinic training for
VHS student/athletes who cannot afford
those items, he said. I

U.S. Bankruptcy Court. This will mark the
end of a quick restructuring process,
whereby NJMP filed Ch. 11 bankruptcy on
March 7 with an agreement with its
secured lender, Merrill Lynch Mortgage
Capital, Inc.
Pursuant to the Plan, Merrill Lynch is
reducing its secured debt from $30.4 to $20
million, and will act as co-sponsor of the
Plan, along with NEI Motorsports, LLC
(“NEI”), who will pay $2 million to fund
certain obligations pursuant to the Plan. In
the event this stalking horse $22.5 million
transaction is determined to be the highest
and best, NEI will be a majority owner of
NJMP upon bankruptcy emergence and
Merrill Lynch will hold a minority interest,
along with its $20 million restructured
secured loan. NEI’s shareholders include
some of NJMP’s shareholders.
NEI’s and Merrill Lynch’s proposal is
subject to higher and better cash offers
with a minimum of $23 million. As such,
Brownstein Corporation, NJMP’s court-
approved Financial Advisor, will be sending
out solicitations via e-mail and mail to
determine whether there might be poten-
tially interested parties with better terms
than the “Stalking Horse bid” that NEI and
Merrill Lynch are offering. There are spe-
cific bidding procedures to which any
other potentially interested parties must
adhere, available from NJMP or
Brownstein Corporation.
The Plan will not affect the longstand-
ing and valuable relationships NJMP has
established with its members, patrons and
sponsors, nor will there be any material
changes in the company’s operations,
including its scheduled events, the Drivers
Club, Shade Tree Garages, Breighton Villas,
hospitality suites, sponsorships, or other

Capital Bank’s Solar Array is
First of Its Kind in Vineland
Capital Bank of New Jersey, the
Vineland-based community bank owned
by hundreds of South Jersey stockhold-
ers, announced today that the new PV
solar installation at its West Landis
Avenue branch is nearing completion.
The ground-mounted solar array was
the first one ever approved in the City of
Vineland for installation in a stormwater
retention basin. David J. Hanrahan, pres-
ident of Capital Bank, noted that, “When
the Zoning Board approved our project in
December 2010, several members were
very complimentary of our creative use of
the otherwise unusable stormwater
retention basin. We are proud to be mak-
ing this environmentally-friendly invest-
ment, and to be doing so in a way that
makes smart use of our property.”
The new solar system will have the
capability to produce 47.84 kilowatts of
power. The environmental benefit is
equivalent to planting 188 acres of trees.
The installation is being completed by Go
Solar Electric of Millville.
Dominic J. Romano, Chairman of the
Board, said, “From the inception of
Capital Bank, the Board of Directors has
Maggie Rivas, Capital Bank assistant
branch manager and Bank President Dave
Hanrahan with Frank Carpino, III, installa-
tion supervisor for Go Solar Electric.

he GVCC hosted an “Officials Round
Table” at Merighi’s Savoy Inn on

—Justin Kenyon, NJ Economic

Attendees remained seated while the offi-
cials moved from table to table in a timed
format. Questions were not prepared for
the officials in advance so all topics were
open for discussion. Attendees brought up
concerns regarding county budget issues;
consolidating services between Vineland,
Millville and Bridgeton; possible closing of
the Vineland Developmental Center and
the status of the Urban Enterprise Zone
program. Other hot topics were New
Jersey’s current rank of 47th of the worst
states to do business in, changes in health
care law, and the impact of high gasoline
prices. It was a great opportunity for open
discussions with elected officials at all levels
of government. I

GVCC GREEN CORNER
The Chamber’s Green Energy and Practices Committee
would like to know about green energy and practices
your business or organization has engaged in that have
helped your company prosper. We would like to feature
your project in our newsletter to share with members.
This committee is focused on educating our mem-
bership on opportunities, issues and general
information regarding environmentally friendly
practices. Please e-mail us at
info@vinelandchamber.org, or call us at
856-691-7400, if you are interested in

Practices Committee.
The Ellison School
Goes Solar
The Ellison School is looking for-
ward to a very sunny summer as it
begins work on a 100 kilowatt solar
system—soon to produce nearly all of
the energy needed to operate the
school year round. The project, spear-
headed by Ellison’s Board of Trustees,
is being designed and installed by
Palmieri Solar Solutions in conjunc-
tion with Palmieri Electric, founded by Raymond Palmieri.
“The use of solar energy has many advantages,” says Steve LaPorta, first vice
president of Ellison’s Board of Trustees and chair of its Building and Grounds
Committee. “Solar energy is environmentally friendly and reliable and will reduce
Ellison’s electric bill by nearly 90 percent.”
The system, which will utilize 429 solar modules, is expected to generate
115,613 kilowatt hours of power each year. The solar modules will be located on
three Ellison roofs—the gymnasium, front portion of the Learning Center and the
back portion of the Computer Laboratory and Library. The system is expected to
be fully operational by the end of May 2011.
Several other chamber members have solar projects in development, including
Landis Sewerage Authority, Merighi’s Savoy Inn, Rossi Honda, and Capital Bank.
These projects will be spotlighted in upcoming issues of N&V.
GVCC Members Hike with Nature Conservancy
On Friday, May 13, GVCC members took a guided tour with The Nature
Conservancy of Maurice River Bluffs. Attendees learned about the value of “natural cap-
ital” and got to experience it first-hand. The highlights were spottings of otters and bald
eagles, as well as hiking along a wilderness trail where along the way unusual bug nests,
a purple slipper (wild orchid), and a bird blind were noted. It was a nice hike and exer-
cise on a spring morning.

Women Professionals Talk
Menopause with Dr. Gewirtz
Dr. Jonathan Gewirtz was the only man in
the room at the Women’s Professional lunch-
eon, held at the GVCC office on Tuesday,
May 24. Adoctor at the Vineland
Gynecology Associates, Dr. Gewirtz focuses
on bio-identical hormone replacement thera-
pies and alternative medicine.
With traditional hormone replacement
therapy putting women at risk for heart dis-
ease, stroke and breast cancer, he recom-
mends “looking at the holistic” and alterna-
tive medicines. He also suggested that
women look at this time in their lives as a
“second spring,” because increased freedom
and energy lies ahead.
He noted, however, that the number one
concern of women as they reach menopause is
finances, and that knowledge has made him
more mindful in hiring in his own practice.
After a 20-minute presentation, Dr.
Gewirtz took questions from attendees.
The next meeting of the GVCC
Professional Women’s Group will be held on
July 26.

T
he Landis
Marketplace
has been open
nearly a
month now and the
response has been posi-
tively fantastic! We are
fortunate that this com-
munity has embraced
the change in downtown
and allowed for this
Market to come to
fruition. The old bones
of the once famed JJ
Newberry store are fully alive again with a
fresh new flavor.
The aisles have been packed with a
melting pot of the greater Cumberland
County area. In fact, customers are com-
ing in from Atlantic City, Ocean City, Cape
May, Delaware, Philadelphia and we even
had a woman make a special trip from
northern New Jersey to see what the fuss
was all about.
While at the Market, many customers
are checking out other stores on the
Avenue. I have talked with several busi-
ness owners on Landis Avenue who said
their customer traffic and sales have been
up since the Market opened. You can see
people strolling along Landis Avenue
enjoying their trip to Vineland and speak-
ing of their return for more goodies.
Behind the scenes at the Market every-
one is working hard and the long hours
are paying off. Overall, the businesses
have been very impressed with Vineland.
Amish businesses and their families are
being reassured that their investment
here is worth the effort and are making
themselves at home. Other businesses
that have recently opened, including
Luciano’s Fresh Market, Tupperware and
Triple Oaks Nursery and Florist are also
settling into the new Market rather nice-
ly. Every day is an adventure here as we
continue to work out kinks and open new
businesses.
We are opening two more businesses,
Las Lomas Grille and Martha’s Spices in a
couple of weeks. Since we opened, we
have been steadily meeting with business-
es interested in opening at the Market and
look forward to expanding our diversity of
products in the coming months.
The Landis Marketplace is having an
official Grand Opening this weekend June
2-4th. The event kicks off with a ribbon
cutting at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 2 outside
the doors on Landis Avenue. It is a very
special moment that pays tribute to the
countless hours and years spent by dozens
of people in our community that believed
in creating a Market that could draw peo-
ple back downtown. The vision is now a
reality! The ribbon cutting will be fol-
lowed by three days of live music, cooking
demonstrations, tastings, giveaways and a
whole lot of delicious food from our mer-
chants.
The Market will continue to have
ongoing events such as music on Fridays
from 5 to 7 p.m. each week and cooking
demonstrations that feature Market mer-
chants and local area chefs and restau-
rants. We are also looking forward to col-
laborating with other community initia-
tives such as the Appel Farm Mural
Project. The Market will be hanging a
portion of the 5’ x 5’ panels in the Market
starting June 2 to help promote the mural
designed by artist Cesar Viveros-Herrera
that celebrates Vineland’s history.
We here at the Market sincerely appre-
ciate all the support from the community
and volunteers that have helped make our
first month in business a smiling success.
Take time from your day and stop in to
celebrate the Landis Marketplace during
our Grand Opening June 2-4. You can
visit us online at www.landismarket
place.com for more information. I

Purple Penguin
Goes Solar
Bright idea for Franklin Township. The
Purple Penguin Ice Cream, located at
1008 Harding Highway in Newfield,
turned sweet 16 and went green.
In April of 1995, Gary and Pat Marino
wanted to buy a business in the township
where they live, and that is when the
Purple Penguin was born. Pat Marino
(aka Mrs. Penguin) is the chief cook and
bottle washer along with daughter
Maryann Marino (aka Baby Penguin), a
graduate of ACC culinary arts, who also
wears many hats. Gary F. Marino Sr.. (aka
Mr. Penguin) is the mouthpiece commu-
nication/ marketing person.
The 32,000 K .W. freestanding mount
ground solar
array will
supply
enough clean
renewable
energy to run
the Purple
Penguin.
Mayor of
Franklin
Touwnship
Pat Dougherty says this is a positive move
for the township, county and state. This
project will bring significant environmen-
tal benefits to our area.
The state of New Jersey has set the
pace for state governments nationwide

Continued on next page
through its powerful commitment to
renewable energy. In recent years, solar
energy in New Jersey has been seen as
big business, companies can make money
by selling off the solar-renewable energy
credits (SREC). SRECs are issued once a
solar system has generated 1,000 kw.
Hours of energy are then are sold to com-
panies who lack solar energy production.
Electric producers are required to
yield a certain amount of solar energy by
the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities
(BPU), and if they do not, they must buy
SRECs. The going rate for those credits,
which are traded on the open market, is
around $600 to $650 each.
The Purple Penguin’s solar project will
generate about 2 ¾ per month or 35 per
year. So in addition to a cleaner carbon
footprint and very low electric bill, the
Purple Penguin can generate about
$20,000 in the sale of the SREC.These
savings can be passed on to their #1 con-
cern, their customers.
For the last 15 years, The Purple
Penguin has been informed they are the
only walk-up ice cream stand in southern
New Jersey with 100 percent solar power.
The Marino family would like to thank
the Newfield National Bank, Virgo
Surveyor, and Site Civil Engineer Mr.
William Gilmore for making this project a
dream come true. Any question about
solar can be addressed to Gary at Purple
Penguin, 856-697-4731 or e-mail njpur-
plepenguin@comcast.net. .

at Winfield's Restaurant in Millville, on
Wednesday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m.
Pat Sutton, a working naturalist and
backyard habitat champion for over 30
years, will cover the basic "how to's" for
creating a butterfly and hummingbird-
friendly garden and yard. It is often as
simple as planting sweet pepperbush
instead of crape myrtle, or Joe-Pye-weed,
purple coneflower, New England aster, and
goldenrod rather than marigolds. Double
the size of your parsley patch and be
amazed by all the black swallowtails it
attracts.
Meet all the needs of hummingbirds
and be dazzled by them in your gardens
from late April through early October.
The obvious, like good nectar sources and
their blooming periods, will be covered.
And the not-so-obvious, like caterpillar
food plants that butterflies and moths
need for egg laying, mud puddling, and
the importance of proper cover from wind
and weather will also be included.
The mystery of a butterfly's life cycle
and where butterflies winter will be
explained. Where hummingbirds go in
winter, why they leave us when our gar-
dens are still in bloom, when they return
(i.e. when to have your yard ready for
them), hummingbird feeder maintenance,
and lots of other natural history fun facts
will be shared. The program features
wildlife areas in southern New Jersey that
have successfully transformed typical
backyards into dazzling gardens ablaze
and alive with butterflies and humming-
birds.
Pat Sutton has keenly studied the natu-
ral world for over 30 years, first as the nat-
uralist at the Cape May Point State Park in
the 1970s and 1980s and then for 21 years
as the naturalist and program director at
the Cape May Bird Observatory. She and
her husband (Clay Sutton) wrote the land-
mark book Birds and Birding at Cape May
(Stackpole Books, 2006, 568 pages), the
in-depth result of their efforts over many
years documenting and protecting the
migration and the Cape May area that
they so love. Other books by Pat and hus-
band Clay include:
* How to Spot Butterflies (1999)
• How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996)
• How to Spot an Owl (1994).
Today, Pat Sutton is a freelance writer,
photographer, naturalist, educator, lectur-
er, tour leader, and wildlife garden consult-
ant. Sutton's own wildlife garden is a
teaching garden included on many tours
and featured in the programs and work-
shops she teaches.
Winfield's Restaurant is located at 106
North High Street in Millville. In addition
to their usual fare, Winfield's will add
some other modestly priced options for
the evening. You do not need to have din-
ner there, however, in order to attend the
presentation. If planning to have dinner,
CU suggests that you make your reserva-
tions for either before the event at 5 p.m.
or at the conclusion of the event, around
7:30 p.m. If you are planning on dining as
well, be sure to make your reservations at
Winfield's soon.
For dinner reservations, call 856-327-
0909. To let CU know you are attending
the event, e-mail forrivers@comcast.net. I
Master Gardener Teaches

ith summer just over the
horizon, kids across the
country are getting ready
to take a vacation from
school while moms and dads are welcom-
ing summer office hours. With long, hot
days by the pool right around the corner,
the nation's grill masters know it’s time to
revel in one of the most beloved summer
traditions—the backyard barbeque.
Backyard barbeques have been a staple
of summer for as long as most people can
remember. As the sun prepares to rise on
summer, it’s never too early to throw the
best backyard barbeque of the season.
Saving the best for last has always been
overrated, anyway.
Grilling enthusiasts can make the most
of their inaugural backyard bash by
employing some of the following tips:
• Make it an event instead of anoth-
er barbeque. Thanks to the laid-back
nature of summer, many backyard barbe-
ques come together at the last minute or a
day or so in advance. For a start-of-sum-
mer bash, hosts should break from the
norm and print up formal invitations to let
guests know this won't be the standard
backyard barbeque. Invitations can be cre-
ated in a matter of minutes and received
in as few as two days. With an invitation
in hand, guests will be more enthusiastic
and this enthusiasm can go a long way in
making the first backyard barbeque of the
year the best of the entire season.
• Choose a theme. After a season
spent indoors, locked away from the cold,
many guests might be overwhelmed with
invites to backyard barbeques. Hosts can
set their soiree apart from the rest by giv-
ing the party a theme. For instance, refer
to the party as the "Summer Kick-off
Hawaiian Luau" and invite friends and
relatives over for a tropical paradise-
themed party, complete with leis,
Hawaiian shirts and tiki torches.
Hosts can even go the extra mile and
make their own custom T-shirts com-
memorating the event. That way, guests
will always be able to remember how they
kicked off their summer in 2011.
• Don't abandon tradition entirely.
While it can be tempting and fun to exper-
iment at a backyard barbeque, hosts
should also embrace some favorite tradi-
tions. Guests will no doubt expect the
standard fare, including salads, hot dogs
and hamburgers. So even if there's going
to be some experimenting going on, be
sure to have the old standbys on the menu
as well.
It's also important for hosts to peruse
the guest list ahead of time. Doing so
ensures there will be enough food for
everyone and that the menu features
food for those with unique diets, be it
vegetarians or those with medical
restrictions. Ask any guests when send-
ing out invitations if they have any such
dietary restrictions.
• Decorate the grounds. At the start
of summer, it probably won’t take much to
get guests excited about a backyard bar-
beque. But if you’re offering nothing more
than just a backyard and a hot grill, your
guests are likely to lose the memory in the
vast array of common backyard barbeque
moments they’re sure to experience this
summer. Hosts hoping to make the night
as memorable as it is fun should consider
decorating the backyard. Banners in the
backyard can commemorate the start of
summer and invite guests to let loose out-
doors for a night spent under the stars
with family and friends. Banners can com-
memorate whichever theme hosts choose
while adding some extra pizzazz to the
backyard barbeque, ensuring that your
backyard bash is a night your guests won’t
soon forget. I

reetings! These two kabob recipes
are not only delicious, but healthy
and fun to make and eat.
Remember recipes serve as a guide-
line; your foods may need more or less time to
cook than the recipe calls for. Happy grillin’!
Chicken & Veggie Kabobs
2 tbs. Bragg Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
2 tbs. brown sugar
2 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
4 boneless, skinless chicken
breasts, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1 pound fresh button mushrooms, wiped
clean and stems removed and discarded
2 large Spanish onions, peeled and cut
into large wedges
3 large green or red bell peppers, cut
into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup all-natural teriyaki sauce or glaze
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine Bragg
Liquid Aminos or soy sauce, brown sugar, olive
oil, crushed red pepper flakes and fresh ginger.
Add chicken pieces and seal bag, turn over sev-
eral times to mix the ingredients and coat
chicken. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours, turning bag
over occasionally. Drain and discard marinade
and place the chicken pieces on a large platter.
On six metal or water-soaked wooden skewers,
alternately thread the chicken pieces, mush-
rooms, onion wedges and pepper pieces until
skewer is full. Grill uncovered in a grill pan on
stovetop or on an outdoor grill over medium-
high heat for 5-8 minutes on each side, or until
the chicken juices run clear. Using a basting
brush, add the teriyaki sauce or glaze to the
chicken and veggie kabobs the last 2 to 3 min-
utes of cooking. Serve.
Shrimp & Pineapple Kabobs
16 uncooked jumbo shrimp
1 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 green onion, sliced thin
1 clove garlic, minced or grated
1 tsp. grated fresh lemon zest
1 tsp. light brown sugar
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple chunks, drained
Peel and de-vein shrimp, leaving the tails
attached. In a large resealable plastic bag,
combine olive oil, green onion, garlic, lemon
zest, brown sugar and Old Bay Seasoning.
Add shrimp and seal bag, turn over several
times to mix the ingredients and coat shrimp.
Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning bag over
occasionally. Drain and discard marinade and
place the shrimp onto a large platter. Place
one pineapple chunk into the curve of each
jumbo shrimp. Thread four shrimp and
pineapple onto each of four metal or water
soaked wooden skewers. Grill uncovered in a
grill pan on stovetop or on an outdoor grill
over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on
each side, or until the shrimp turn pink, and
are just cooked through. Serve on a bed of let-
tuce with a few wedges of lemon. I

balls and take batting practice at the stadi-
um, pass a test on baseball rules and terms,
show her knowledge of the Phillies, and
hold her own in an on-camera interview
with local sports broadcasters. The group
was winnowed to 20 who were called back
for second interviews, and Brenner was
one of just nine who finally made it.
“I always wanted to do it after college;
it combines my lifelong love of the Phillies
and softball with my love of doing some-
thing new,” said the Veterans Memorial
Intermediate
School math
teacher.
Brenner was
a star second
baseman at
Vineland High
and played center
field at Rowan
University—that
Division III col-
lege team went to
the NCAA region-
al tournament
three years of her
four and was
always a contender
in the New Jersey
Athletic
Conference.
Her Phillies
training last year
involved being on
the field with an
experienced ballgirl
for progressively
more innings over a four-game stretch.
Then, she was on her own.
“I was very nervous, but I just thought
to myself I’ve played this game all my life,
I know what to do, I’ll be okay,” she related.
St. Louis Cardinals superstar Albert Pujols
hit the first ball she fielded, and with that
one behind her she had all the confidence
she needed.
This year, Brenner was a trainer.
The job is often thrilling.
“Going out onto the grass, the stadium
is so big, there are so many people, the
energy amongst the fans is outrageous,”
she said. “You can understand how the
players say the crowd is so important, how
they feed off the fans.”
Balls corralled by ballgirls are given to
young children sitting in the stands nearby.
The tradition provides Brenner with both
the favorite and hardest parts of her work.
“The expressions on the kids’ faces are
priceless, especially if it’s their birthday,”
she said. “But at the same time, the deci-
sion on who to give the ball to is tough,
and you have to do it quickly because play
resumes.”
Brenner has a streak going: She has
never let a ball get by her and bounce onto
the playing field.
Each of the 17 ballgirls works for about
half of the Phillies home games and is on
the field for about three games a month.
While two squad members are catching
balls, the other six run the “Red Goes
Green” rotating team of volunteers from
schools and community groups who, in
exchange for tickets and food vouchers,
collect recyclables
around the park
between innings.
“It’s fun, working
with the other girls,
plus you can see the
game from the con-
course, I enjoy it,”
Brenner said.
The ballgirls’
softball team
played a lot of
charity games last
year against organ-
izations such as a
volunteer fire
department, and a
Little League
team. The girls
also have a per-
sonal appearance
schedule where
they work with
children, partici-
pate in fundrais-
ing walks, attend
Opening Days, and perform other
activities.
Brenner appears at about a half dozen
events a month and loves it. “You’d never
get to do these things, being a ballgirl puts
you into these positions.”
Ballgirls only work for the team for two
years, a practice Brenner thinks is aimed at
getting fresh faces into the program.
Brenner’s dad, Eugene, works at Dallas
Automotive in Millville and her mom,
Donna, works for New Jersey
Manufacturers Insurance Company in
Hammonton. They have partial season
tickets and regularly see their daughter
work.
Her brother, Jeffrey, is a student at
Rutgers University in New Brunswick.
They all have Kristina Brenner trading
cards, as do legions of fans she has passed
them out to in a promotion run by the fan-
friendly Phillies. The cards aren’t valuable
(in a monetary sense), but the experience
and lessons of this unique job surely are. I
