y now, you’ve heard the name Mike
Trout. Drafted 25th overall by the
Los Angeles Angels in 2009, and out
of Millville Senior High School, the 20-
year-old Trout has quickly amassed a rep-
utation among scouts and analysts as a
perennial All Star in the making. This year
he was ranked the third-best prospect in
the minor leagues by Baseball Prospectus—
MLB’s foremost authority on budding stars.
Those in the game will tell you about
his speed and his power. They’ll rave
about his canon of an arm, and tell you
he’s one of the most incandescent young
talents they’ve ever encountered. He’s a
five-tool player in every sense of the word
(some have joked that he’s actually a six-
Working parents are already lining up child care plans for
the summer. While they’re at it, educators say all parents of
school-age children should also plan for preventing the
dreaded “summer slide,” or information and skills children
forget during summer break from the end of one school year
to the beginning of the next.
The education slide is well-documented by numerous
studies, which were synthesized in the 1990s by Harris
Cooper, then a professor at the University of Missouri-
Columbia. He found that children could forget one to three
months of learning over the summer.
Also, children tend to gain weight more rapidly when
they’re out of school, according to a 2007 study by Paul Von
Hippel of Ohio State University. Kids, especially those at risk
for obesity, gain as much weight during the summer as they
do all school year.
What can parents do to keep young brains and bodies
engaged in healthy ways over the summer?
In our area, we are fortunate to have many summer
camps and activities to combat both problems. Turn to page
24 to read find just the right camp and/or activity to keep
your kids active and actively learning this summer.

Time to
Mulch
Our columnist has had much to learn about mulch.
T
hey say the only things certain
in life are death and taxes. Well,
that may be true for city folk
but I’ve discovered that the
other certainty in life—especially in south-
ern New Jersey—is mulch.
That’s been both a revelation and a
rude awakening for me. Growing up in the
city and then, when I first moved here,
having a lawn service, I just never had
occasion to bother with mulch.
As a matter of fact, before I moved here
I probably thought mulch was something
that vegetarians ate as a snack.
You know, like muesli. Not that there’s
anything wrong with that.
My time here in southern New Jersey
has opened up whole new worlds for me.
Admittedly, most of those new worlds had
to do with food.
For instance, I had never tasted gnoc-
chi and probably would have thought—
based simply on the name—that it was
some type of bacterial infection.
But that’s a column for another day.
Back to the mulch.
My first brush with mulch actually was
more of a brush fire.
I was visiting my then girlfriend/now
wife at her home in East Vineland.
It was a lazy summer day, hot as the
dickens, and we were sitting on her back
deck enjoying a beverage.
I asked if she minded if I smoked a
cigar and she said no problem as long as
we stayed outside. She even brought me
out some of those wooden kitchen match-
es to light up.
A devout non-smoker, she didn’t have
an ashtray so she went inside to find
something I could use. Once lit up, I
flipped the match into the flowerbed next
to the deck.
Then, we were just sitting and talking
when I smelled smoke. In a second she
could smell it, too.
Since it was 90 degrees in the shade and
nobody in their right mind would be burn-
ing wood, we looked around for the source.
Turned out to be smoldering mulch.
Well, mulch and I got off to a bad start
and it hasn’t gotten any better.
Every year we buy anywhere from 20
to 40 bags of the stuff and every year it
disappears. Last year, my wife decided it
would save us money if we ordered it by
the truckload.
That didn’t sound right to me, but I’m a
city boy and still defer to her on all mat-
ters regarding the great outdoors. A day or
so later, one of those big sand and gravel
trucks pulled into the yard.
“Where do you want it,” the driver
asked.
“I didn’t order a truck,” was my reply.
Turns out my wife had ordered us a
couple of yards (is that the correct termi-
nology?) of high-grade mulch.
Well, of course, she wasn’t home and
(horrors) hadn’t left instructions on the
best place to put it.
The guy was getting impatient so I had
him just dump it next to the house.
Well, as it turns out, there is no best
place to put a mountain of mulch. And, as
my wife pointed out to me, if there were it
certainly wouldn’t be next to the house.
So, I hitched up the wagon to the rid-
ing mower and went into the mulch busi-
ness for the next couple of days. I have to
admit that the yard did look nice when I
was (finally) done moving mulch.
This year we went back to the tried,
true and costly bag method. She was on a
little mini-vacation between Palm Sunday
and Easter and I was left with instructions
to “do the mulch.”
When she came home I proudly
showed her what I had accomplished.
“We need more mulch.”
And right there you have my problem
with mulch.
I think it was Gloria Vanderbilt who
once famously said, “You can’t be too rich
or too thin.” If she’d been living in south-
ern New Jersey, she almost for sure would
have added, “or have too much mulch.”
There is just no such thing as too much
mulch. No matter how much I’ve spread
or raked or patted into perfect mounds
around the bushes, it’s never enough.
Every year, I finally put my foot down
(being careful to avoid the mulch) and
declare “no more mulch.”
My wife just smiles and nods her head.
She’s a South Jersey girl.
She knows.
Next year we’ll need more mulch.I

STRAIGHTENING TEETH HAS COME A LONG WAY. Braces work. Yet,
even though they come in bright colors these days, the brackets and steel wires still
work the same way. Food still gets stuck in them. Flossing and brushing are an
adventure. And, when you’re a teenager sporting a mouthful of metal, easy and
confident smiles can be hard to come by.
ALL SMILES. NO SACRIFICES. Back when we were teenagers, putting up with the
hassles of braces and feeling self-conscious about wearing them were necessary in order to get
the smile you wanted. For today’s teens, getting through those formative years can be a little
tougher. Thankfully, straightening their teeth with Invisalign Teen
TM
is a lot easier.
THE ADVANTAGES ARE CLEAR. Invisalign Teen is a series of virtually invisible
aligners that gradually straighten your teen’s teeth. And because they’re removable, proper
dental hygiene is a cinch. Since most people won’t even know your teen is wearing Invisalign,
they’ll have the confidence to keep on smiling. Best of all, treatment costs about as much
as braces, and fewer doctor visits take up less of your time. Our aligners
even include a color-coded indicator that tells you how long your teen’s
been wearing them.
FIND OUT WHY MORE AND MORE MOMS ARE CHOOSING INVISALIGN TEEN.
Choosing how to straighten your teen’s teeth is a big decision. Visit our
website to see what other teenagers and their parents have to say about
us. Then take a few moments to take our Self Assessment together with
your teenager.
Invisalign Teen will help give your teenager the confidence of a great
smile—and they’ll love you for it along the way.

Invitational
The YMCA of Vineland Seals Swim
Team traveled to Charlotte, North
Carolina recently to compete in the
SunKissed Junior and Senior Swimming
Championship of the U.S.A.
The team rose to the challenge at

ing two team records, according Coach
DeMatte.
The team wishes to thank the com-
munity for supporting them throughout
the season and at the final fundraising
events held just before they left.
Pictured is Rachel Simone and
Geena DeFoore who both set team
records in the 1000 freestyle. Geena
placed 16th and set the the team’s 13-14
girls record and Rachel took 16 seconds
off her team record in the 15-18 girls.
The junior boys relay also finished in
4th in the 200 medley relay, which
included Keith Harris, Anthony Santoro,

that night surpassed their team goals
for a great start after a 10-hour bus ride
from New Jersey.

Winslow Supports Autism Awareness
Winslow Elementary
School staff gathered on
Monday to show their
support for "Light It Up
Blue," a unique global ini-
tiative by Autism Speaks
to help raise awareness
about the growing public
health concern that is
Autism, according to
Jamie Culican, a 5th
grade teacher of students
with Autism.
Winslow also held a jeans day for United by Autism, raising $220 for the
organization. The funds will be used to purchase books for Caldwell College, a
New Jersey facility recognized as a leader in innovative training for specialists in
Autism education.
In addition to the jeans day, Winslow will be participating in United by Autism's
poster contest. The contest pairs up a neurotypical learner with a student with
Autism to create a ribbon or puzzle piece design. Judges from the school admin-
istration and community volunteers will select a winner on April 20. The school
will forward the winning poster to United by Autism to be judged with the rest of
New Jersey's entries. The contest winner will receive an iPod Touch device.
Winslow will again participate in the 9th annual Blow Bubbles 4 Autism on
April 26. At 1:15 p.m., southern New Jersey's Families for Autistic Children
Education and Support (FACES) Autism Support Network will take another shot
at a place in the Guinness Book of World Records, attempting to have 37,000
people blow soap bubbles for one minute.

tool player, the sixth tool being his incred-
ible instincts and knowledge of the game).
There are claims that Trout’s talents are
reminiscent of another well-known,
blonde-haired, blue-eyed centerfielder by
the name of Mickey Mantle. The praise
comes in heaps.
It is not all empty buzz, however. The
impetus for such lofty comparisons is
Trout’s play on the field. Since 2009, he
has played minor league baseball on five
separate levels, rapidly climbing the ranks
to Triple-A, where he opened 2012 with
the Salt Lake Bees, the Angels minor
league affiliate. In that time, he’s hit a com-
bined .341 with 23 home runs, 132 RBI, and
108 stolen bases over 284 games. He’s post-
ed an impressive .938 OPS (on-base per-
centage plus slugging). His performance
on the field begets the approbation.
But with the accolades comes raised
expectations. The comparison to Mickey
Mantle is probably an unfair weight to put
on the shoulders of a 20-year-old, but it
exists nonetheless, and it places pressure
on Trout to perform. It’s the kind of pres-
sure that could crush even a fortitudinous
individual.
This is where Trout breaks away from
the mold. He exudes confidence and com-
posure. When asked about the expecta-
tions surrounding him, Trout is able to
brush the question aside with the aplomb
of a man many years his senior.
“What people say about me, it’s great.
It’s humbling,” said Trout during a recent
phone call from the Salt Lake Bees facility.
“But when you get out there on the field,
you just have to go out and play, and do the
things you’ve been doing since you were a
kid. You have to leave that stuff behind
you, have some fun, and focus on playing.”
Trout seems to be able to adopt tunnel
vision when it comes to blocking out what
people are saying about him. This type of
maturity is just another accoutrement to
his already loaded tool belt.
In the game, this type of thing is what’s
known as an intangible—something a play-
er possesses naturally and can’t be taught.
His wealth of baseball knowledge is
another intangible.
These intangibles, more than his
incredible talent, are why the Angels have
Trout on the fast track to the big leagues.
Last year, when most ballplayers his age
are still toiling in Single A, Trout was
making his MLB debut at 19, starting in
place of the injured Peter Bourjos on July
8. He would appear in 40 games for the
Angels in 2011, starting 32 of them.
It was a learning experience he relished.
“Getting the experience was important
for me,” said Trout. “When I got called up,
I didn’t really know what to expect. So
going up there, I got a chance to see what
it is like. Knowing what’s up there now,
Mike Trout

1 FOR ENROLLMENT!
First MLB Home Run
Mike Trout’s maiden MLB cam-
paign afforded him a once-in-a-life-
time opportunity.
The date was July 24, 2011. The
Angels were playing the Orioles in
the final game of a series in
Baltimore. The city’s proximity to
South Jersey allowed hundreds of
locals, including Trout’s parents,
other family members, and friends
to make the two-hour trek down
I-95 to see him play.
After going 0-for-2 in his first
two at-bats, Trout stepped to the
plate to face Mark Worrell in the
7th inning. On a 3-1 pitch, Worrell
threw Trout a fastball over the
heart of the plate. Trout turned on
it, sending the pitch deep into the
seats at Camden Yards for his first
Major League home run. In the
stands, hundreds of people, many
of them wearing Angels t-shirts
with Trout’s number 27 on it,
jumped up and down with excite-
ment as Trout circled the bases.
Hitting your first major league
home run is something that will
always be remembered, but to do it
in front of so many people who
were there to support him made
the experience especially memo-
rable for Trout.
“It was unreal for me,” said
Trout. “A lot of times, when my par-
ents come out to see me, I don’t do
as well because I’m pressing, trying
to do something for them. When I
hit that ball, I knew I hit it good,
and it got into the seats. It was
exciting. Afterwards, everyone was
joking that that’s the fastest they’ve
ever seen anyone run around the
bases after a home run. Just to
have my family and friends see it
like that, it’s a great feeling.” — RD
Mike Trout
Continued from previous page
knowing where I have to be, it helps me
going forward in my career.”
Like a lot of players, Trout struggled in
his first stint in the big leagues, experienc-
ing the growing pains that come with
being a young player learning the game on
the Major League level. He hit just .220 in
123 at-bats. But the sample size is small,
and the story of a young ballplayer scuf-
fling before becoming a star is one that’s
been told countless times. Even the great
Mickey Mantle, to whom Trout so often
draws comparisons, was not immune to
struggles early in his career.
In his rookie season in 1951, the Mick
hit just .259 through his first 60 games.
He’d go on to bat .298 for his career, with
536 home runs. To say Trout will do the
same would be too assumptive, but it does
indicate that even some of the best players
of all time got off to slow starts.
What Trout got out of his first big
league experience was an understanding
about how he needs to approach his at-
bats. The term “quality at-bats” came up
six times during our brief discussion. He
feels he struggled the way he did in 2011
because he was giving away too many at-
bats—swinging too early in the count and
not working himself into hitters’ counts.
“I know what’s up there now, and I’m
trying my hardest to get back there,” he
said. “Last year, I gave away way too many
ABs. For me, it’s about trying to get quality
ABs this year.”
Trout’s performance so far this year at
Triple-A Salt Lake suggests he’s getting
plenty of quality at-bats this time around.
He’s hitting an even .400 with an eye-pop-
ping 1.063 OPS so far this season, the best
numbers he’s posted on any level to date.
His success has many talking heads sug-
gesting that it would behoove the Angels
to call him up to the big leagues now.
When asked about this, Trout once again
invokes his tunnel vision.
“I follow the Angels and of course I
hear what people are saying. But I try to
stay focused on my goals. My goal [in
Triple-A] is to win a championship. If I
get called up, I get called up. But I can’t
worry about when that’s going to be or
what they’re saying about me,” he said.
Trout is quick to use the word “if”
regarding his potential recall to the
Majors. But for many, it is not a question of
if, but of when. For now, he’s waiting in the
wings of the Angels farm system, focusing
on getting better every day. His moment is
coming. It’s essentially a foregone conclu-
sion that he’ll get a long look in the Majors
at some point. By most accounts, it will be
sometime this year. This time, he hopes to
be better prepared. I

Keep it Local
on Wednesdays
Main Street Vineland’s focus shifts to smaller, retail-
oriented events like the new “Keep it Local Wednesdays.”
M
ost area residents are
familiar with the large,
one-day events that Main
Street Vineland and its vol-
unteers have organized or supported over
the years in the downtown. Annual
events such as the Cruise Down Memory
Lane, the BBQ and Chili Cook-off, the
Soap Box Derby and the Holiday Parade
are great ways to bring lots of people to
Landis Avenue to see all that the down-
town has to offer.
While everyone enjoys these special
events, they are not inexpensive to put on.
In fact, they simply would not happen
without the kind and generous financial
support of area businesses.
Like most households, Main Street
Vineland has also felt the pinch of chal-
lenging economic times and, as a result,
we have had to rethink the kinds of pro-
grams and events we’ll be doing this year.
With this in mind, our Promotions
Committee has decided to focus more on
smaller, retail-related events, which are
certainly less costly than one-day special
events. The most significant component of
this retail focus is a new program that
starts Wednesday, April 25 and runs
through August called “Keep It Local
Wednesdays” – a weekly promotion fea-
turing great bargains, specials, and fun.
The brain-child of Promotions
Committee volunteer and downtown
restaurant owner Lurie Luciano of
Luciano’s FreshMarket inside Landis
MarketPlace, “Keep It Local Wednesdays”
is designed to encourage people to spend
their dollars locally – even if only for one
day in the week.
More than two dozen businesses have
signed up to be a part of this great cam-
paign, and you can see those businesses
and their special offers by visiting the
Main Street Vineland website at
www.MainStreetVineland.org. We will
update these offers each week, or as
offers change.
To participate in the “Keep t Local
Wednesdays” program, you need only a free
discount card (which you can obtain from
any participating business or by contacting
Main Street Vineland at 856-794-8653.
The “Keep It local Wednesday” cam-
paign will kick off on April 25 with a
“Name Your Own Price” promotion on
great food at Luciano’s FreshMarket.
Later in the summer, some special pro-
grams and events will be worked into the
campaign, such as the popular “Lunch on
Landis” promotion which will return
beginning Wednesday, May 16 and will
run through May 22, with $8 lunch spe-
cials at participating restaurants. I

henever Charles K. Landis
established a town, he
ensured its success by
building in a location with
train access. The property he and Richard
J. Byrnes turned into Hammonton had a
railroad running from Philadelphia to
Atlantic City, which guaranteed commuter
connections to two significant destina-
tions for business and pleasure. Vineland
was no different, containing a rail line
running from Camden to Millville. It’s
highly significant that the tracks marked
the center of town and was the site where
the stake was driven to mark the city’s
founding. So a train line was necessary for
Sea Isle as well.
The fact that there was no rail system
on or in the vicinity of Ludlam’s Beach,
the original name of the resort location,
did not deter Landis. He was aware that
the location was ideal for tourism, as was
his chief engineer H. Farrand who, in an
undated letter, told Vineland’s founder
that “with proper railroad facilities, and
lots offered at a reasonable price, I do not
see why this place should not become as
great a resort as Atlantic City…”
Landis had already written of the
importance of a railway in a diary entry
and, consequently, was quick to secure an
alliance with General William Sewell.
According to Jeffery M. Dorwart’s book
Cape May County, New Jersey: The Making
of an American Resort Community, Sewell
was a Republican Party leader in the state
but, more importantly, a director of the
Pennsylvania and West Jersey Railroad.
Dorwart writes that Landis and Sewell
worked out a deal that “led to the estab-
lishment of a railroad branch line from
just north of the South Seaville station
(known as Sea Isle Junction) across the
marshes to Ludlam’s Beach in 1882.”
Construction of the railway, which took
one year to complete, seems to have gone
smoothly, but that doesn’t mean there
weren’t problems. From the start, Landis
faced a series of challenges from the rail
company. According to the South Jersey
Rails online site, as of September 15, 1879,
“West Jersey Railroad inform[ed] Charles
K. Landis that his development at
Ludlam’s Beach is not a paying proposition
and that he should invest more money in
improvements, and if successful, West
Jersey Railroad will build a branch there.”
By December 10 1880, according to
Christopher T. Baer’s online chronology of
the Pennsylvania Railroad, West Jersey
Railroad apparently felt that the project
was worthwhile enough to “make a
proposition” to Landis to “provide rail and
rolling stock for a branch to Sea Isle.”
However, it would be the founder who
would have to oversee the construction of
the train line.
Baer dates the beginning of construction
as May 25, 1881. Don Wentzel, writing in
South Jersey Magazine, reports that work
began in Woodbine and extended “five
miles across a meadow to Sea Isle City.” He
identifies that “151 tons of 40 lb. iron rail
and 6,160 [railroad] ties were brought into
Sea Isle to Townshend’s Inlet a distance of
2.42 miles.” By January 7, 1882, Landis noti-
fied West Jersey Railroad that he had grad-
ed a right-of-way fromSeaville to the mead-
ows and requested assistance from the
company to complete the project through
the meadows to his new settlement.
On June 2, 1882, Baer reports, the pas-
senger line from Seaville to Sea Isle City
officially opened. The new tracks provided
what Landis needed to guarantee visitors
to his new town, but his work on the train
line continued. Baer writes that, on March
22, 1883, Landis contacted West Jersey
Railroad, saying he had built “an excursion
house at Townsends Inlet south of Sea Isle
City and built a light railroad to it.”
The entry continues, saying that the
founder offered “a right of way the length
of the beach” and reported that he
planned on building “another excursion
house at Corsons Inlet at the north end of
Sea Isle City to be done by June 1,” to
which the company “agree[d] to negotiate
for a railroad running the length of the
island from Corsons Inlet to Townsends
Inlet.” The following month, West Jersey
Railroad approved the extension, but
required Landis to build it at his expense
if the company failed to do so. I

VMEU Ranked Top Utility in Nation for Solar
Vineland Municipal Electric Utility (VMEU) has been chosen as number one of the
nation’s Top 10 electric utilities in the amount of solar power it added to its system in 2011,
according to the 2011 Utility Solar Rankings survey conducted by the Solar Electric Power
Association (SEPA). Of the more than 240 utilities that participated in the SEPA survey,
VMEU ranked first in the Annual Solar Watts per Customer category.
The overwhelming majority of utilities listed were investor-owned utilities and,
according to Vineland Municipal Utilities Director Joseph Isabella, who added that New
Jersey’s utilities were well represented. In the Annual Solar Watts per Customer category,
VMEU had 762 solar watts and the second place utility, Rocky Mountain, Georgia, had 192
solar watts per customer.
Isabella said that the recognition is affirmation that the city’s plan for cleaner and more
efficient energy generation and distribution is on track. “When we started, Mayor [Robert]
Romano and I sat down and discussed our strategy to provide reliable, low-cost energy to
the City of Vineland,” Isabella stated. “Most importantly, we wanted the city’s Municipal
Elecitric Utility to be an environmental leader and that’s what this award recognizes.
What makes it different is the unified will between the mayor, utility management and
city council—this was accomplished without political infighting.”
Mayor Romano said that, in
addition to the city’s solar power
generation, the VMEU’s new nat-
ural gas-fired combustion turbine
will be operational by May 5. The
new turbine is a more environ-
mentally-friendly and economical
option than the coal-fired gener-
atiing system it replaces.
The old generator contributed
to the VMEU having a very differ-
ent public perception than the
one it enjoys today. “We were
once considered the dirty little
utility in South Jersey,” said
Isabella. “Now we’re the best little
utility in South Jersey. If we con-
tinue this for a few more years,
we can set the city up for 30 years
of clean energy.”
Mayor Romano added that the
goal for the VMEU is to offer cus-
tomers (Vineland residents) the
lowest energy rates in then state
and hinted at a rate reduction in the near term.
Altogether, the Top 10 utilities in SEPA’s 2011 utility rankings reported adding more
than 1,000 megawatts of solar electricity capacity in 2011. Overall, more than 240 utilities
surveyed reported nearly 1,500 megawatts of new solar, equivalent to about six natural gas
power plants.
The full Top 10 report containing additional details about the total solar capacity of U.S.
utilities, rankings by regions, geographical diversity and other utility solar trends will be
available in late May at www.SEPATop10.org.

World Series of Birding Team
Needs Your Help
The 29th annual World Series of
Birding, created and organized by New
Jersey Audubon, will be held Saturday,
May 12. Over 100 teams, from “experts” to
youths to seniors, swarm the state from 12
midnight Friday to 12 midnight Saturday
in search of as many species of birds as
they can identify by sight or sound.
Citizens United to Protect the Maurice
River (CU) has paid an entry fee for the
team, and that fee supports NJ Audubon's
mission. CU encourages you to support
the CU Fish Hawks, with all proceeds
benefiting CU Maurice River’s mission.
The Fish Hawks are planning to find as
many species as they can within the
boundaries of Cumberland County, rather
than the entire state. They will be in pur-
suit of the Limited Geographic Area
award. So, rather than shooting for the
200 or so bird species an “elite” team of
experts might identify if they covered the
whole state in 24 hours, the Fish Hawks’
success will be judged on par with the
number of species known in Cumberland
County, and they will be competing with
other teams who attempt to find the most
species within the boundaries of another
county in New Jersey—based on the “par”
for that county.
You can support the team by making a
pledge to contribute a certain amount per
species seen, heard and otherwise identi-
fied by the team. If they end up getting
150 species, for example, a 10 cent pledge
would be a $15 contribution; 25 cents
would be $37.50. A $1 pledge would be
Continued next page

$150. Or, you can just offer a flat amount
toward the cause. Download your pledge
form and instructions at
http://library.constantcontact.com/down-
load/get/file/1102026594211-
121/Pledge+form+CU+WSB.pdf or email

with your pledge.
Folks raising $100 or more will receive
this cool t-shirt! It will look even better on
you than it does on the osprey, pictured.
Tony Klock, who is a member of CU’s
Board of Trustees, is leading the CU Fish
Hawks. Tony and his team members—
Karen, Brian and Clay—ask for your sup-
port on May. 12
Fact: Some seven weeks ago, Tony cor-
rectly predicted the arrival date of a
favorite spring migrant, the Prothonotary
Warbler. He said it would arrive on April
15, and it did! I

W
hen we were young, Dad occa-
sionally bought lottery tickets, but
only when the pot was big. We
used to tease him, but he always said “some-
body's gotta win!” Mom and Dad used to love
to go to Atlantic City on the weekends, and
when I asked Dad why he enjoyed it, he said
that it was the only place where he forgot
everything–every pain, every worry. The
recent huge Mega-Million drawings over the
past few years–and a few weeks ago, in par-
ticular–have made me a ticket buyer! The
few mystical, magical days between when I
buy tickets and the actual drawing are now
the most blissful moments of the year. I day-
dream about my villa in Tuscany, or my vine-
yard in Provence, and it transports me to
that other world of hopes, and the anticipa-
tion just feels wonderful. Maybe that is the
true “get” that is gotten from the lottery. I
now understand what Dad meant and maybe
that is all these forays into the world of
"chance" are meant to be just a chance to
dream.
My yearly forced march to AC is fast
approaching. Once again, my sister Linda
will be expecting her birthday trip to the
casinos in May (got a feeling that this year it
will be to the new Revel Casino. I can't wait
to throw away another $20.00). Somehow
the anticipation does not inspire any day-
dreams. Now I feel only dread.
As spring and summer approaches, I am,
however, looking forward to lighter meals
and here is one of my favorite dinners–pasta!
I only use Dreamfield's Pasta now and Shop
Rite has a nice little variety–from Angel Hair
to Penne and even Lasagna Noodles, all great
and very satisfying. You will never know
that you are eating low-carb pasta.
Springtime Pasta Dish
1 box Dreamfields Penne Rigate
2 cups sugar snap peas (Bird's Eye has
them frozen)
2 cups fresh or frozen green peas
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups baby greens (arugula, spinach or a
blend)
1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (I like tar-
ragon, thyme & mint)
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package direc-
tions, adding sugar snap and green peas dur-
ing last 3 minutes of cooking; drain and
place in large bowl. Meanwhile, combine
lemon juice, zest and salt in small bowl.
Whisk in oil. Toss with pasta and peas.
Gently toss in greens and herbs. Garnish
with shaved Parmesan and additional zest.
I really like this at room temperature,
although I do dress it when the pasta is
warm.
Serves 6-8 people. I

ince Capital Bank of New Jersey’s beginning, its success has been due to the people connected with
the institution.
It started with Capital Bank’s 27 Organizers who, in 2005, saw the need for a new community bank in
Cumberland County – one which would deliver friendly, hometown service, and which would be an active
lender to small- and mid-sized South Jersey businesses and individuals.
Those 27 Organizers soon multiplied into hundreds of local stockholders who agreed that a new bank
headquartered in Vineland was needed and would be successful. And they’ve been proven right. Following
Capital Bank’s initial capital raise, which was the biggest community bank initial offering in South Jersey of
all time, the bank has achieved remarkable growth and results since it opened for business in April 2007.
For 2011 it announced record prots, and recently declared its rst-ever cash dividend to its stockholders.
The quality of Capital Bank’s staff has always been a critical part of its success. David J. Hanrahan,
President and CEO, commented “As we celebrate our fth anniversary in 2012 and look back on our
achievements over the last ve years, we know that they are due in large part to the friendly, hometown
staff in our two Vineland branches.”
Denise Zemanik, Capital Bank’s Vineland Regional Manager, is a well-known local banker with
a reputation for delivering great service to her customers. And the rest of the team at both Vineland
locations, the Main ofce at 175 South Main Road and the branch on West Landis Avenue next to the
Wal-Mart Supercenter, are just as dedicated. They are all friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about
delivering great service to the bank’s customers.
And unlike many banks, they don’t hide behind faceless 800 numbers. Capital Bank invites existing
and prospective customers to contact either ofce directly at 690.1234 (Main Ofce) or 691.1234 (West
Landis Avenue). Odds are good that Vineland residents will know at least one of Capital’s bankers pictured
above – ask for them by name!
Aside from its two Vineland locations, Capital has branches in Woodbury Heights and Hammonton. The
bank now employs 58 banking professionals, all of whom live and work in the communities the bank serves.
In addition to friendly customer service that is second-to-none, customers also nd Capital Bank’s
interest rates to be competitive and its accounts surprisingly free of fees. And their bankers make it easy
and painless to switch to Capital.
The bank’s loan products are handled in the same friendly and exible way as its branch services. While
many banks in the region have exhibited little or no loan growth over the last several years, Capital Bank
has consistently lent more and more money to its local community in every year of its ve year existence.
Please call Denise Zemanik at 457.6357 for your consumer loan needs or Cosmo Giovinazzi at 457.6367
for any nancing your business requires.
Dominic J. Romano, Chairman of the Board, said “We are grateful to the thousands of local people
and companies who have chosen to bring their banking business to Capital over the last ve years. We
encourage people to call our staff so they can nd out for themselves why Capital Bank is the right, local
community bank for them.”
Capital lends to people and businesses throughout Southern New Jersey. It is an Approved SBA (Small
Business Administration) Lender and a N.J. EDA (Economic Development Authority) Premier Lender. It is
also a 5-Star rated bank by BauerFinancial (www.BauerFinancial.com).
See Capital Bank’s ad on the back cover of today’s Grapevine for more of the “People Behind the
Place”!

PEOPLE BEHIND THE PLACES—SPRING 2012
INTRODUCTION
The Grapevine is pleased to present its first
People Behind the Places. This is a special section
that includes area businesses and the people,
owners, managers, and employees that make each
of those businesses unique.
Research has shown that consumers are more
likely to patronize local businesses, especially if
they recognize or know the people who run those
establishments. The Grapevine’s People Behind
the Places gives local entrepreneurs the opportu-
nity to introduce their staff or management to the
residents of the greater Cumberland County
region.
So read through the pages of this special insert
and get to know the people who help keep the
wheels of business running in our locale. Get to
know the People Behind the Places where you
shop and do business.

arol A Deola, a retired teacher of 33 years, originally began All Kids First Preschool in September of
1999, as an Abbott school center, servicing children ages 3-5. Many parents began to voice their
need for infant care so in 2007 Carol decided to expand and open infant rooms providing care for babies
until they were ready for preschool. Within the next two years these infant rooms were lled to capacity. So
a new facility for private childcare was purchased to accommodate the need for more children and space.
All Kids First II is a childcare center for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschool children who reside in or out of
the Vineland District. All Kids First II is open all year from 7am to 5:30pm and is located at 1321 Stewart

emotional, and social skills will be addressed.

n 1978, Dr. Don S. Cooper, D.C. opened Family Chiropractic Center in Vineland.
After converting to a wellness practice, which includes not only chiropractic, but also
all-natural weight loss and nutritional counseling, Family Chiropractic became Cooper
Wellness Center at their new location on LaSalle Street. Coming soon, Cooper Wellness
Center will also offer nutritional analysis through Science-Based Nutrition™, analyzing
blood, urine, and hair samples. Results of these analyses will provide patients with the
most comprehensive breakdown of any health problems, including nutritional deciencies
and dangerous toxicity. Dr. Cooper will also provide patients with a complete report of
ndings with nutrient and dietary recommendations. Cooper Wellness Center provides
an alternative route for those looking to restore their health without the use of harmful
medications. Dr. Cooper provides natural solutions to health problems, and his staff
provides a loving, caring, and supportive environment with a “no wait” policy. This means
you will rarely wait more than ve minutes when you are on time for your appointment.
Cooper Wellness Center’s receptionist, Amber Kutil, is the rst smiling face that patients
see when they come in. She handles all front desk duties, telephones, scheduling, and
insurance billing.
Heidi Shelley is the ofce manager. She also works as Dr. Cooper’s Public Relations
Assistant, networking with local businesses and scheduling free public lectures on various
health topics.
Dr. Cooper’s commitment to his patients is what drives his practice. His purpose is to
help as many people as possible restore and maintain health through natural methods by
combining Chiropractic care with cutting edge nutrition, stress reduction, and permanent
weight loss programs. Free consultations are always available.
Dr. Cooper explains that “Too many people believe it is normal to feel bad, have
headaches, feel fatigued, or have pains in the body. These symptoms are all signs that
something is not functioning properly. A doctor’s job is to nd out why, and help the body
restore its normal function. I believe too many doctors just prescribe medications that
cover up symptoms, never addressing the cause of the issue.”
“One example of this is toxicity in our bodies from the thousands of chemicals in our
food, air, and water, which can cause a variety of symptoms. Taking medication, even
though possibly hiding a symptom, contributes to further toxicity of the body. This can
lead to weight gain, liver and kidney damage, malnutrition, or worse, since prescription
medications have become the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.”

four of the system’s Intensive Care Units, as well as the Lantern Award for
excellence in emergency nursing at the Elmer Hospital.
Physicians play an equally important role within our organization.
Our Medical Staff of more than 500 physicians represents nearly 45
specialties and sub-specialties and offers diagnosis, treatment and care
for thousands of people in our region.
Whether greeting visitors at the front desk or comforting patients at their
bed sides, volunteers play an important role at SJH, too. More than 550
dedicated and generous volunteers donate more than 50,000 hours of
service to support the mission of the health system – contributing to the
health and well-being of everyone in our community.
As the largest employer in Cumberland County, our system is also
supported by hundreds of people working in a variety of departments
ranging from housekeeping and security to nance and information
systems. They all support our mission of providing the highest quality
health care to our neighbors. We thank our employees for their service
and dedication to providing our patients with the outstanding experience
they expect at our hospitals.
