Frank Discussions

ART OF TWO PALETTES


EVENT RAISES FUNDS,
AWARENESS FOR ELWYN NJ

Congressman Frank LoBiondo, talks with Grapevine staffers on topics ranging from casino
closures, lost jobs, sports betting, immigration, and Iran to Donald Trump as President.

10th annual event honors artists


with disabilities.

ongressman Frank LoBiondo took time out last


week to visit the SNJ Today facilities at the
Glassworks Complex in Millville. While on site, he
visited with The Grapevines editorial board, including
Mike Epifanio, Deborah Ein and Mickey Brandt. The informal Q&A session was a familiar meeting as LoBiondo visits
The Grapevine once every year at around this time,
whether it is an election year or not (LoBiondos seat is not
up for election in November 2015).
GRAPEVINE: Let's start out with jobs. Since the last
time you sat down with our editorial board, four casinos
have closed and about 8,000 jobs have been lost. The casino industry has always been the largest industry in your
district in terms of employment and as an economic catalyst for the region. Are there things you can do at the federal level to alleviate the sting of those job losses?
LOBIONDO: Its devastating for thousands of men and
women to be put out of work, some without a prospect of
finding other work and what its meant with the ripple
effect on the rest of the economy. Even though casinos are
completely under the control of state government and the
feds have nothing to do with their operation, when this
hit, I partnered with [Democratic] Senator Cory
Bookeron a National Emergency Grant (available to communities that have large, unexpected economic events
causing significant job losses).
N.J. Commissioner of Labor Hal Worth took time and
put together an airtight application [which resulted in] a
$30 million grant for retraining [for positions in both
existing businesses and those we want to attract.]
GV: How about efforts to help shore up Atlantic Citys
tourism market?
LOBIONDO: As terrible as Sandy was, some of what

I News in Brief
New Bus Route for the County
The Cumberland County Department of
Workforce Development is rolling out a
new transportation service route in the City
of Vineland starting Monday, August 31.
Freeholder Director Joe Director
Derella said the service area will include
the East and West Boulevard corridor with
key connections to the Vineland
Transportation Center, the Vineland
Produce Auction and the New Jersey
Veterans Memorial Home. The Route provides a convenient connection to the exist-

ing Vineland Industrial Park Route and the


NJ TRANSIT 553 and 408 Routes.
Deputy Director Doug Long, who serves
as Co-Liaison to the Department said that
the bus will operate from 6 to 9 a.m. and
3:15 until 6:15 p.m. to accommodate riders
work schedules. The public may obtain the
transportation schedule by calling the
Department of Workforce Development at
856-451-8920, or online at www.ccoel.org or
at one of the many of the community organizations, faith-based centers as well as government offices. The schedules are also
available in an accessible format upon
request for individuals with disabilities.
Registration for the Vineland Area
Connector is required and there is a sug-

gested fare of $1 per trip. The registration


forms are available on the bus, at the One
Stop Career Center currently located at 275

www.ccoel.org. The 18-passenger bus is
ADA compliant and has heat and air conditioning for rider comfort.
Funding is provided by NJ TRANSIT

Grants Available for Gleaning


Organizations
New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture
Douglas H. Fisher has announced that the
Department of Agriculture is accepting
applications for the Gleaning Support

Program Grant. A total of $100,000, subject


to availability of funds, is anticipated to be
accessible to eligible non-profit organizations. Eligibility requirements include
being a non-profit entity operating in New
Jersey with evidence of a gleaning program
for a minimum of two years within the past
three calendar years.
Gleaning Support Program funds should
be used to support gleaning activities.
This means gleaning the local New Jersey
farm fields, collecting such gleaned locally
grown products and distributing the products to New Jersey organizations to help
feed the states hungry. The Public Notice,
Eligibility Requirements and Application
are posted at www.nj.gov/agriculture/
grants/gleaninggrants.html.
The funding for the grants comes from
the State Food Purchase Program, for
which $6.8 million was allocated this year
to be distributed quarterly to the states six
food banks to purchase healthy food, with a
priority on buying locally grown produce
from New Jersey farmers.
For more details, call 609-292-0337.

Afterschool Programs Key to


Developing Youth
Cumberland County has the highest
percentage of births to females aged 10 to
19 in the state. Supervised afterschool time
is a key to combating that statistic and others that reflect poorly upon our area. The
YMCA of Vineland is dedicated to offering
afterschool programming that supports key
social-emotional, cognitive, and physical
development to improve the quality of life
of young people. Registration is going on
now through the school year.
The YMCAs afterschool programs offer
activities in a caring and safe environment.
These are located at all of Vinelands elementary schools, two middle schools, and
at the YMCA. In the Vineland YMCAs
afterschool program, children receive
homework help, physical activity through
the Horizon Healthy U and Reebok programs, arts and crafts, and STEM activities. Financial assistance is available to
those in need. For more information about
the YMCAs afterschool program, contact
856-691-0030 or visit www.ccaymca.org .

WWW.GRAPEVINENEWSPAPER.COM |

Macleod Carre, board member and cochair of the event, stated, The Art of Two
Palettes is the signature event of Elwyn
New Jersey and, among the things we hope
to do with the proceeds, is to purchase
another much-needed handicap accessible
van and automated external defibrillator
(AED) devices for community living and
day programs run by this organization.
Robert Odorizzi, also co-chairing this
years event, added, This is a wonderful
social event and networking opportunity
for the community to come out and support
Elwyn New Jersey, which has been helping
individuals with disabilities since 1898.
Sue Sauro, the organizations
Development Associate, appreciates that
support. The Art of Two Palettes event
would not be possible without the support
of the Elwyn family, members of the community, business sponsors, and the time
and talent of some of the finest chefs in
the region.
Elwyn New Jersey, formerly called
The Training School at Vineland, has
been providing services to individuals

Salon Fabroja Celebrates 22 ears

Four New Staff Join YMCA of Vineland


The YMCA of Vineland has added four new staff
members over recent months. Their responsibilities are varied, but each is in a position to enhance
the organizations mission of building a stronger
community.
David Calderetti is a Project director and works
with Vinelands Live Healthy (Vivar Salud) program. His previous employment was with the Cross
County Connection Transportation Management
Association. He is a graduate of Stockton
University. He said, The Y is all about being the
best version of yourself. People come here for a
reason: they can better themselves and their health
here. Its a very intriguing place to work. His hobbies include weight lifting, biking, and music.
Calderetti resides in Collingswood.
Jackie Martine is the director of Annual Giving
and Volunteer Engagement. She is a graduate of
Arcadia University. Before coming to the Vineland
YMCA, she was the Resource Development associate for the local United Way. She also worked during college summer vacations at the Ys summer
camps. A Vineland native, she envisions employment at the YMCA as a way to help the community
in which she grew up. I like the people at the Y,
she said. The members and staff are like family.
In her spare time, Martine enjoys dancing, painting, and exercising.
Angela Mercado also had previous experience
working at the Vineland YMCA and has returned as
its director of Member Services. A Cumberland
County College graduate, she had most recently
been employed by the Compass Academy Charter
School. Working here gives me that personal feeling that I can engage members, know their stories,
and help them, she explained. The Y makes connections with its members. Mercado lives in
Vineland with her son, with whom she spends her
fun and leisure time.
Ashley Parent is the Ys new School Age
Childcare director. In her prior post, she was the
site coordinator for childcare at the Sabater
Elementary School. She has additionally served
the Vineland YMCA as director of Camp
Merrywood. She said of her new role, I enjoy the
children, parents, and staff. The school age programs are great because so many families need
them. And camp gets kids from other schools
together so they meet new children as they learn.
She is a graduate of Caldwell College and a
Minotola resident. Her pastimes include camping,
hiking, and art.

Teens Kayak on Union


Lake, Are Enriched by
Natural Enivironment
Several teen members of the
Boys & Girls Club of Vineland were
able to enjoy a wonderful day of
kayaking on Union Lake in Millville,
thanks to Steve Eisenhauer and the
Natural Lands Trust. The teens participated in this and other interesting programs and trips through the
Club's Summer Enrichment
Program with support from
DCF/Outreach to At-Risk Youth.
Pictured is Club teen member
Christopher Tooley holding a moss
(Bryozoa, a phylum of aquatic
invertebrate animals) with member
Jeromi Semidey standing in background. The youth also learned
about other creatures that live in
and around the lake.

Radio operator Sandy Wentzell, pictured above, who flew 30 WWII combat missions with the 8th Air Force and later served in Korean War where he was captured
and spent time as a prisoner of war.
All of these men have had their experiences video recorded as part of the Millville
Army Air Field Museums Veteran Interview Project, a unique program that engages
local high school students to conduct and record the veteran interviews. To date, the
MAAFM program has recorded 110 veteran interviews, nearly all from World War II.

I Vintage Vineland

{ BY VINCE FARINACCIO }

Distilled Eras
Our columnist takes a look at time/history from the perspective of a current popular museum exhibit.

{ 16 } the grapevine | SEPTEMBER 2, 2015

nside the museums, Infinity goes up


on trial, wrote Bob Dylan in 1966,
and its true. Museums are a representation of time, bottling moments
of expression and distilling eras into random objects evaluated and judged by each
succeeding generation. And it takes an
artist who recognizes the vagaries of time
to challenge and to offer the viewer insight
accompanied by a wink and a smile. Thats
exactly what happens at the current New
York City Museum of Modern Art
(MOMA) exhibition Yoko Ono: One Woman
Show 1960-1971.
Housed on the institutions sixth floor,
the exhibit begins just outside the main
gallery with the film Match Piece, and from
the start this collection of historic components originally presented in the 1960s in
Tokyo, London and New York confronts the
viewer with the notion of time. One of several films shot in slow motion, the piece
focuses on a match flame that takes minutes
before it is extinguished, its ephemeral
nature yet another theme examined in the
show through the use of additional films,
texts, audio clips and objects.
At the start of the exhibit, a glass
pedestal containing a green apple (not the
inspiration for the Beatles company/record
labelthat was a Rene Magritte painting)
sits alone in a room. The fruit is meant to sit
and decay naturally, another reflection of
the human lifespan. In late August, a new
apple had been placed on the stand and it
will no doubt remain until the shows closing next Monday.
The reminder of time fills each room of

this exhibition. Much of it is about remembrance or re-creation, such as pieces from


Onos 1966 Londons Indica Gallery show,
where she met Beatle John Lennon, her
future husband and collaborator. Included
are a white ladder with a screen above it
and a magnifying glass dangling near it, a
board covered with nails and the aforementioned apple, all significant to the couples
first encounter. There is also an interactive
Bag Piece display where visitors can hide
inside a black bag as Ono did onstage at late
1960s concerts with Lennon.
But the past isnt the only portion of
time represented. There are pieces about
the present moment such as self-portrait
smile boxes that, when opened, have
viewers peering at themselves in a mirror.
Even the future is addressed in something
like the directions of Promise Piece, in
which the fragments of a broken vase are
gathered by audience members who agree
to meet in 10 years to reassemble it.
When Ono is not examining time, she is
conceptualizing and projecting how to fill
it, whether it be with the suggestions that
comprise the pages of her book Grapefruit,

seen here in manuscript form, or with a


2015 display, To See the Sky, a winding
staircase that takes you to the skylight. The
sky motif is rooted in the artists days of
displacement in Tokyo during World War
II and the comfort derived from watching
the sky in the countryside.
What is remembered the most in this
exhibit is Lennon, who was tragically killed
in 1980. He is a noted collaborator of the
piece Air Bottles, a companion to Onos
Half-a-Room, which contains domestic
objects such as shelves, chairs, a painting, a
suitcase and shoes all cut in half. He is the
sole subject of the 1968 film Smile and
appears in a clip of his and Onos 1969 Bedin for Peace. His name appears on several
of the films and his image dominates a display in the room dubbed The Plastic Ono
Band, which contains album jackets, 45rpm picture sleeves and vinyl LPs. The
Plastic Ono Band actually originated as an
Ono sculpture before the term was applied
to various one-off aggregates of musicians
accompanying the couple.
The exhibit ends with War is Over, a
campaign that was part of the couples
ongoing efforts to promote world peace.
They then grew less political and much
quieter as the decade progressed and their
return to recording in 1980 included two
Vineland musicians as session players who
would also contribute to Onos album
Season of Glass following Lennons death.
But MOMA has wisely chosen to conclude
the exhibit with the year 1971, graciously
freezing time at one of the artists happiest
and most productive periods. I

Joe Luisi Gave Glass


Sculpture to Joltin Joe

In last weeks Grapevine, history


columnist Vince Farinaccio wrote
about how New York Yankee Joe
DiMaggio had been honored by
Vinelands Diamond Social Club in
1951. Vinelander Joe Luisi, now 94
years young, remembered it well
because he was a big part of the
presentation when the Yankees visited the Philadelphia Phillies at
Shibe Park that year.
Luisi is the artist who created
that glass sculpture. He still has
clippings from a 1951 Vineland
newspaper showing him with the
creation he would later give to
DiMaggio. He also has a letter of
thanks he received from Joe
DiMaggio and a reproduction of a
photo with him, Joltin Joe and
some other Vinelanders during the
presentation at Shibe Park.

This was not a mere publicity show. We
made a list of all the problem areas we
saw with the full intention of following
up. Well make these tours regular events
to monitor these areas and look out for
others. Were also looking to make the system of enforcement for ordinances and
codes more responsive to our concerns

eliminate them were goals of this tour and

n last weeks column, I talked about


the five ribbon-cuttings we did on
June 18 and I promised more information on the Pride in Vineland
tour we did right after that to keep track
of downtown areas in need of attention.
That information comes this week.
Though the two projects may seem like
they have nothing to do with each other,
they have a very strong relationship. In
order to attract new businesses to our
downtown and to keep the ones we have,
its absolutely essential that our downtown looks the best it canno litter, trash
in its proper place, grass cut, leaves and
debris picked up, properties swept clean,
no makeshift shelters on the sidewalk or
on properties, and no violations of Code
Enforcement and Licenses & Inspections
regulations. With a lax approach to pride
in our downtowns appearanceand the
appearance of the rest of the citybusiness development cannot happen.
Through meetings with the Mayor and
city department heads, the necessity for a
tour of areas needingattention became
more acute. So, with the Mayors help, we
arranged the tour, using the city trolley.
Along with us came Licenses &

Delsea Drive restaurant, Marcianos, and the fact that Chef Anthony
DePasquale (formerly of Ginas Ristorante) has recently joined the kitchen

They hosted an Iron Chef competition pitting Sam and his brother Mike
Marciano against new Chef Anthony and his son Brandon DiPasquale.
Patrons enjoyed the new surroundings in the Back Room @ 947, which is the
name the Marcianos have given to the new dining room, located just beyond

The event featured a DJ and lighting reminiscent of a prize fight. All


patrons who ponied up $35 each got to enjoy a salad before sampling two
appetizers and two entrees apiece. Tasty after-dinner desserts were included
in the cost of entry as well.
The customers were asked to choose the better of the appetizers and the
entrees, each of which were prepared by either the Marciano boys or the
DePasquales. The customer votes were augmented by the voting of four
judges: City Council President Anthony Fanucci, former mayor of Vineland
Bob Romano, Grapevine Publisher Mike Epifanio and Daily Journal managing
editor Jason Alt. The attendees did not know which culinary duo prepared
which dishes.
By the end of the evening, after all the votes were tallied, the
DePasquales were declared the winners of the contest, but the real winners
were the attendees who got to enjoy a great night of entertainment and delicious seafood dishes with good company.

Red Knot Gastropub

TELL EM YOU
SAW IT IN
THE GRAPEVINE!

Andrew Johnson, owner/operator, is excited to introduce


Vineland's first gastropub, The Red
Knot. Newly opened in early July
the 2,000-square-foot restaurant/
pub could be likened to a 21st
century version of "Cheers," where
the decor incorporates warm
woods, comfortable seating and
an atmosphere that invites people
to sit and visit.
The menu at the Red Knot
Gastropub consists of small
plates, entrees and desserts that
focus on gourmet American comfort food. Basic menu items are
similar to that of a restaurant pub,
but the quality ingredients used
and the way they are prepared,
take the dishes from predictable
to truly inspired. Johnson called
on high school buddy Marc
Meneghetti to work as chef and
turn their decade-old pact of owning a restaurant into reality.
Menu items at The Red Knot
range from $8 to $22. A full bar,
including 40-some craft beers and
cocktails, are available.

Ellison Explorers Visit Aviation Sites


The Ellison School's Explorer Camp visited the Millville Historic Aviation Museum
to learn about the flight during World War
II.The next stop was to Big Sky Aviation
where Flight Instructor, Kevin Bertonazzi,
taught campers about the aerodynamics of
flight and what makes a plane fly. Our
friends from
the Cooper
Hospital
Medical
Helicopter also discussed their jobs in aviationand
children viewed the helicopter's high tech capacities to
take care of critical care patients while in flight!
Next, students took a quick simulator ride over
Union Lake and Millville with Ellison staff member, Ms.
Brown at the controls of our flight simulator. She safely
landed the simulator back at Millville Airport to the
cheers and delight of her virtual passengers.
As a final activity, students came back to Big Sky's training classroom to construct their own balsa wood airplanes - utilizing the features and skills of aerodynamics they learned.We all went outside and had a contest to see whose plane
flew the furthest.
Thanks to Big Sky Aviation's Beth Smithson, the Millville Museum and Cooper
Medical Chopper crew for being part of the Ellison School's new STEM initiative.

happened in the aftermath is turning out to
be good. We had a tremendous fight on our
hands, where we were almost unable to get
the emergency supplemental appropriation
to help New Jersey after Sandy. Congress,
after 200 years of helping communities
that had natural disasters, decided that
southern New Jersey would be the one
they did not help. We overcame thatso
theres a $40-50 million project underway
for the Atlantic City Boardwalk and all of
Absecon Island. [Beach replenishment is
also included] so not only does it benefit
Atlantic City, but the neighboring communities as well. Sandy allowed every municipality to have a replenishment project at
zero cost.
GV: Do you think that local homes and
businesses impacted by Sandy and the
more recent storms and flooding have gotten sufficient support from the federal
government in a timely and streamlined
fashion?
LOBIONDO: In many cases, yes, but in
some cases, no. About 90 percent of the
cases were handled expeditiously and successfully but if youre one of those cases
that wasnt, youre devastatedIf people
believe they werent treated properly, their
case can be reopenedand to FEMAs credit they haveattempted to respond.
[But] this whole Sandy, FEMA, federal
flood insurance situation is all wrapped up
in a huge mess that weve slowly been sorting out and I think weve had a degree of
success.
If there was ever an area that needed
help, though, it was our Delaware Bayshore
communities. But because Cumberland
County didnt qualify [because not enough
area was impacted], the Bayshore didnt
qualify... [I think] the government really
screwed up.
GV: A third circuit Court of Appeals
panel today (August 25) upheld the ban on
sports betting in Atlantic City casinos.
Rather than hope for another appeal and a
more favorable outcome, youve sponsored
a bill, the Sports Gaming Act of 2015. How
would this change the law that created the
ban in the first place?
LOBIONDO: It was a disappointing
decision, but not a total surprise. Readers
have to fully understand that, in 1992...New
Jersey did not take advantage of the window open at that point to go into sports
betting. Only four states didSenator Bill
Bradley was strongly opposed and, while
he didnt singlehandedly stop it, he was
instrumental...Until New Jersey held a referendum and approved it, we couldnt act
in CongressThere has been a referendum
with a 2-1 majority in favorWeve always
known the legislative path would be tangledSenator Harry Reid of Nevada, where
sports betting is legal, is adamantly
opposed. [There have been so many other
legislative issues; this has not been a priori-

ty of a lot of people.]
Were going to push forward and hope
to have hearings that will demonstrate the
ridiculous stance the NFL hassuggesting
to everybody there isnt any betting going
on. The NBA and the NHL [support our
efforts.]
We think that well have a good handle
on the money being bet and if something
[such as point shaving] is going on, youll be
able to tell from the sophisticated software
tracking the money being bet and the
trends. [This is the opposite of what the
NFL is saying.] Its very involved. We have
made progress.
GV: Theres a widespread national
debate right now about immigration. Do
you think tighter
controls to
reduce the immigration of undocumented workers
are having negative consequences to our
areas agricultural
production?
LOBIONDO:
Its making it
incredibly difficult for our farmers. There are
horror stories
that, in some
cases, farmers
have had to lose
crops because
they havent been
able to get the help. [Immigration reform]
has been a complicated and controversial
issueThere needs to be an effective guest
worker programthat would give our farmers relief and not be flying in the face of
what a lot of people dont like.
GV: How does the guest worker program directly relate to stemming the tide of
undocumented immigrants across the border? Where do you stand on extending the
border fence along its entirety?
LOBIONDO: Border security has always
been for me one of the most important
thingsIf youre from one of these border
states, like Arizona, these people are living
in fear almost every day for their own
property and whats happening around
them. And what has actually happened
with at least some of the guest worker program, because its not monitored [well
enough], people come in to be guest workers, but then decide not to go back I think
if something goes before Congressif
theres not strong border security, its not
going to pass because almost everyone
believes the border is porous.
GV: Donald Trumps position on dangers posed by illegal immigration has
begun to resonate around the country. Do
you think the flow of immigrants across the
border does present a situation of
increased crime or social disorder?
LOBIONDO: In some cases. I mean, if
we look at what happened in San

Francisco. (The murder in July of a young


woman, walking with her father, by a
Mexican national in the U.S. illegally).
Heres a convicted felon who was deported
five times who had no business being here.
I have two daughters. I can only imagine
walking along with one of my daughters
and, as Im just having a casual conversation, her being shot and killed by somebody
who didnt belong here in the first place
Why are we turning our focus away from
people who are here and are criminals and
terrible things happen. Thats part of the
reason this comprehensive policy has to be
put together These cases become highly
visible and people form opinionsThats
why Trump is hitting a chord, every father

who has a daughter thinks of what happened in San Francisco and is horrified.
GV: You are a longstanding member of
the House Armed Services Committee. Do
you think Americas leadership position in
the world is impacted by a lack of military
presence around the world?
LOBIONDO: I dont know about more of
a military presence in the world, but more
of a military presence here. Its horrifying
whats happening to us. No country in the
world has ever been attacked for being too
strong Were going to have troop strength
thats lower than prior to World War II. We
have tank commanders who have to train
in simulators because they cant train in
tanksfighter pilots who cant get the
hours they need because they cant get the
spare parts.
Our readiness is abysmal. The dereliction of leadership duties that we have a
responsibility for are massiveI think we
are at the front edge of very bad thingsI
think were just asking for trouble.
GV: How do you bring this increase in
readiness about in a cost-effective manner?
LOBIONDO: Its costly, but the bad
alternative is more costlyWe have allies
who are looking for our leadership in the
world who dont understand when we
draw a line that cant be crossedthat its
like a line at low tide that washes away.
The word of the U.S. doesnt mean much
anymore to the rest of the world because

when we say were going to do something


and we dont do it, we erode our credibility.
Russia is one of the biggest challenges
we are facing. Putin is a KBG thug and he is
being very aggressive and it impacts the
future of NATOSo Im very critical of how
were handing all these things.
GV: Senator Robert Menendez recently
came out in opposition to the proposed
Iran nuclear test treaty. What is your position on that proposed deal and how do you
assess its prospects if, or when, it comes
before the Legislature?
LOBIONDO: Im a little surprised you
arent aware of my position. Im opposed to
it and even more so every day You have to
start looking at it by looking at Iran Iran
hasnt told the truth
on anythingThey
chant Death to
America and they
mean itTheyve
sworn to wipe Israel
from the face of the
Earth.
The Iranians are
going to be allowed
to use their own
inspectors to get the
samples to provide
to the international
community to
determine if theyre
in violation or not.
Its insane, they
havent told the
truth on anything
Its igniting a
nuclear arms race in the Middle Eastthe
Saudi Arabians are lividand the fact that
Saudi Arabia is closer with Israel today
than the United States is a disgrace and
an abomination Continued sanctions
would have probably gotten them closer
to the deal that we all would want to see
and they would be denied the ability to
move forward.
I think this a very wrong move andone
of the most dangerous things this country
could doand I dont think it should be
allowed to go forward.
GV: Lastly, it's always fun to dabble in
some political speculation. From the
crowded field of Republican presidential
candidates, who stands out to you as candidates you think would be best to lead our
nation? Do you have a viewpoint on why
Donald Trump leads the polls in this early
stage of the campaign?
LOBIONDO: We are so early in this
process. I want to hear a lot more from the
candidates: What their ideas are, what
their solutions areWhen you think back
four years ago on the Republican side, who
were the leaders of the packHerman
Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum
and what happened to them as it got closer? Donald Trump is certainly commanding a lot of media attention, but can he
carry this through? Possibly. Hes in a
unique position with a very deep pocket,
which hes fond of telling everybody. I

MEMBER HIGHLIGHT: Grade A Tutoring


s formats for standardized
testing change and SATs
and ACTs continue to open
doors to tuition grant rewards and
acceptance at quality universities
nationwide, the need for test-taking
guidance becomes increasingly
important for college-bound high
school students. Grade A Tutoring
provides that direction.
Grade A Tutoring was born in 2008 when owner Vince Farinaccio, a former high
school English teacher and current college professor with 35 years of experience,
saw the need for students to improve their test-taking skills. His one-on-one tutoring
has resulted in an average 50-point increase in test scores for his students and also
has enhanced their writing skills.
This semesters SATs begin in October and continue through the school year and
Farinaccio encourages an average of six weeks of preparation for students. To
schedule tutoring sessions, he can be reached at
856-697-5251 or at gradeatutor@yahoo.com.

What

New Sport for the YMCA:


Pickleball

{ C 4 } GREATER VINELAND CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

A new sport that has been popular in


many parts of the USA has come to the
YMCA of Vineland. This fall, the YMCA
will offer Pickleball, which is a scaleddown version of tennis. It is played
indoors, with a whiffle-type ball, smaller
racquets, and a smaller court. The
YMCAs court is part of the new Milam
Family Multipurpose Center. The sport is
appropriate for all ages, but it is especially appreciated by active older adults.

NEWS FROM AND ABOUT


CHAMBER MEMBERS
Bob Crouthamel, the Ys Youth and
Family director, explains, Pickleball is
particularly appealing to people who
want to get exercise in a setting where
there is little chance of injury but a great
opportunity for exercise. The YMCA is
beginning this sport to give individuals
and their partnersor new Pickleball
friendsas a way to get exercise in a temperature-controlled setting. No experience
is necessary!
Crouthamel (pictured, left) is shown
here playing with Lance Bryant, of
Vineland, who was trying the sport for
the first time. Bryant notes, I am looking
forward to playing this as an alternative
to other fitness routines. Pickleball is
another reason to come to the YMCA.
The YMCA has scheduled a free clinic
for the community to try Pickleball from
9 to 10 a.m. on Wednesday, September 9.
Participants need only bring sneakers.
Later in the month, classes and round
robin play will be available. For details
about Pickleball, call Crouthamel at the
YMCA of Vineland at 856-691-0030, ext.
130 or check www.ccaymca.org.
