  • October is here and were happy its fall scarecrows abound, a pumpkin patch, apple bobbing, kiddies (and adults) on hayrides and much more! Our area has some of the best autumn scenes, and the fall foliage is magnificent, so take in the crisp air and apple cider and en-joy the many cool outdoor activities with the family.

    This month is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this is when public service groups, medical professionals, government agencies and others work to promote aware-ness of the disease. Promoting awareness involves educa-tion about prevention and treatments, fundraising efforts to help find cures, and support for survivors and those dealing directly with the disease. Breast cancer is the fifth deadli-est form of cancer worldwide, and this month helps remind women everywhere to practice regular breast self-exams and to schedule regular visits and annual mammograms. The entire world helps promote this month, from the white house turning pink, to NFL players wearing pink ribbons, to the pink Mayan Pyramids in Mexico, and even the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro sports the pink! So get your PINK on this month and support the cause!

    Halloween is upon us and that calls for trick-or-treating, costume parties, carving jack-o-lanterns, bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films - I plan on checking off most of this list. While all this sounds fun, please make sure your kids are safe and check with your town for curfews on Halloween night.

  • Letter to the EditorI have been privileged to have a diverse and rewarding private,

    professional and public life. One of the things that runs strongly through all of these elements is an understanding of the importance of preserving our history in all of its aspects. This included our open spaces and farmland as well as our historic buildings.This is why I have always been a strong supporter of our

    preservation programs and the dedicated tax that funds them. This is our heritage. This is our bequest to future generations. It unifies our community and anchors our quality of life. It also protects us from the unwanted impacts of development and supports real estate values for every tax paying property owner in Colts Neck.This is also why I am absolutely opposed to the upcoming

    referendum question seeking to divert this dedicated revenue to purposes that should be funded by other means. All of the benefits that have been discussed are day to day expenses that will disappear as soon as the money is spent. This is a poor use of scarce tax dollars and one more reason why I hope everyone will join me in voting NO on November 8th.

    Recently, three students and the Pastor of St. Benedict Catholic Church and School visited Domestic Church Media in a new segment that promotes school and church programs in the Diocese of Trenton. The Rev Daniel Swift answered questions and spoke about new programs offered to members of St. Benedict, as well as the local community.

    Cheryl Manfredonia and her husband Jim, hosted the radio show. The segment, which highlights a different parish and school each month, was the first in the series. St. Benedict is one of the largest parishes in the Diocese of Trenton, explained Mary Granito, public relations coordinator for the school and church. We have an obligation to our students and to our parishioners to embark on new programs and offer opportunities that might not be avail-able elsewhere. We are thankful to Domestic Media for allowing us the opportunity to brag about our church and school. We are very proud of what weve accomplished at St. Benedict and we look for-ward to the future.

    Cheryl Manfredonia explained her reasons for starting the new and exciting segment stating, It is a way of broadcasting the hid-den treasures that exist in our Catholic community and. provides people hope and a positive spirit. In the course of our three years on the air (1260 AM-Trenton), we have met so many wonderful people. With all the negative news and press in secular media; we feel it is our duty to proclaim the good news. This program will help us feel more connected, bridging the miles, especially now that we are heard on 89.3 FM in Monmouth County.

    Along with various Church programs, the school offers many op-portunities to its students. Logan Gallagher, a fifth grade student at the school, was eager to report that St. Benedict School has over 500 students. Julianna Granito, seventh grade, participates in sev-eral clubs at the school including drama, newspaper, alter server, softball, and cheerleading. St. Benedict School makes me feel good about myself and my accomplishments in school.

    As a fifth grade student, Ryan Granito looks forward to many of the programs, including basketball, this year. Ive waited so long to try out for the team and now its finally time! Sports are impor-tant to me and Im glad to be able to play on a team with my school friends. As a fifth grader, I can be an alter server this year too. Its a whole new world for me at school this year.

  • Making Whoopie Pie that is!

    It seems everywhere you look, in the grocery store, at the local coffee bar, and even at Mulberry Market, you see Whoopie Pies. Pre-made or in a mix, these little yummy treats have become a popular desert and snack for kids and adults alike. But where do they come from?

    Who gave them a name like that? Oh, and lets face it, they arent exactly a pie.

    If you visit New England, they will take credit for inventing the first version of todays classic Whoopie pie. Maine in particular, takes pride in promoting this little morsel of bliss. Portland is home to the famous Cranberry Kitchen. These gals make Whoopie Pies in every flavor and shape you can imagine. Even Lobster shaped red velvet. For those of you who have traveled to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, you know that Whoopie Pies are every where and the Amish have claimed them for there own. So who is right? Well, we dont know. The consensus among Whoopie pie aficionados, an Amish man visited Maine and took home the recipe and made it there own.

    Now as far as the name goes

    That is anyones guess and can be left to your imagination, for some say its just as good as (fill in the blank). Local legend from the Amish tells us that Amish children would yell Whoopie when mothers served them for dessert after Sunday supper. Now, our last query the name piehow on earth can it be called a pie? There is no crust, only filling. Traditional filling is a mix of sugar

    and cream cheese squished between two round domed cakes. Chocolate is the classic flavor with red velvet a close second. Whatever the origin of these tasty cakes it doesnt matter much, because everyone feels a little happier after tasting one.

    Have a little fun this fall and make a little Whoopie!

The Frances Foun-dation For Kids Fighting Cancer personally delivers smiles and compassionate relief in count-less ways to these young war-riors, as they undertake their intense and often painful wars, as well as to their families, who face daily emotional and finan-cial burdens.

    The Frances Foundations 7th Annual Gala will be held on Sat-urday evening, October 15. The Gala is a joyous celebration of the kids indomitable courage as well as the extraordinary hero-ics of their families. The Gala enables the Frances Foundation to deliver smile to the kids and their families throughout the entire year, including summer camps and an awesome holiday party. Every penny raised by and every dollar donated to the Frances Foundation goes direct-ly to the kids and their families.

    All are welcome to attend and experience the unforgettable moments at the Frances Foun-dations spectacular Gala being held at the Ocean Place Resort. Where do you begin in try-ing to describe the thunderous ovation for the kids? Last year more than 600 guests thorough-ly enjoyed this magical evening, including many distinguished luminaries from the NJ business community.

    The Holmdel Kiwanis, Dear-born Market, and the Luccarelli

    Family, are the 2011 Galas Spe-cial Guests of Honor. They have been staunch, generous and car-ing supporters of children in need and their families for more than half a century.

    The Frances Foundation is privileged to salute their ex-traordinary efforts, contribu-tions, and services to numerous children and families, as well as to countless and civic organiza-tions. In recognition and sin-cere appreciation of their genu-ine commitment to community service, the Frances Foundation could not have selected more deserving honorees.

    The delectable fare will in-clude a duet entre of braised short ribs and cumin crusted mahi-mahi, numerous hors doeuvres, pasta stations and a five hour open bar. The cocktail hour ballroom glows with stun-ning gift baskets galore and awe-some silent auction items; and the entertainment included the talented singers from DAmico Entertainment, Phil Bruschi singing Sinatra, and dancing until midnight. An elegant and enjoyable evening for a cause that makes an immediate and direct difference for those in need by helping children and their families in the midst of in-describable suffering.

    By Patricia Smillie-ScavelliGarden State Veterinary Specialists

    On Sunday, October 16, 2011 the Friends of the Monmouth County Parks Sys-tem will be holding their 8th Annual Doggie Costume Con-test and Pet Fair sponsored by Garden State Veterinary Spe-cialists.

    This annual event is an op-portunity to bring your dog to Thompson Park dressed in a Halloween costume and possi-bly win a prize in one of several categories, including: the Best Canine/Human Combo, Most Original, Scariest, Funniest, and Prettiest. Winners in each category will be selected during the pet parades held at noon and 3:00 p.m. The Monmouth County Sheriff s K-9 Unit will be demonstrating the skills of their specially trained dogs and their human partners at 1:30 p.m. Pet product vendors will be offering unique items for your pet and the pet lover in all of us during the Pet Fair.

    The Pet Fair is a great experi-ence for true animal lovers. You can take your dog to the park; enjoy the Pet Fair with them and even dress up for Hallow-een. While enjoying your day, you and your dog can support the Monmouth County Parks system, includ-ing the off-leash dog areas. The importance of off-leash dog ar-eas in an urban environment has been established in research stud-ies. A community which has an off-leash dog area provides a place for both dogs and humans to socialize with each other. Play is an important activity for a dog and is pretty important for humans as well. Having a designated space for dogs and their owners reduces the likelihood that dogs will be let loose in other areas where they could adversely affect the rights of other park users. Dogs often help people break the ice,

    getting people who share simi-lar interests to socialize while exercising their dogs. The op-portunity to socialize builds a sense of community which ben-efits everyone.

    The Monmouth County Parks System has designated two off-leash dog areas for Monmouth County, one located in Thompson Park on Newman Springs Road in Lincroft and a second one at the Wolf Hill Recreation Area in Oceanport. The Thompson Park location offers a 1.5 acre space for larger dogs and a acre small dog area. This location offers water to both humans and canines. At the Wolf Hill Recreation Area there are concrete patios with sheltered picnic tables. Both off-leash dog areas are open 7 days a week during regular park hours.

    Every dollar raised during this event goes to the Friends of the Parks and supports the pro-grams and facilities of the Mon-mouth County Park System that made the Off-Leash Rec-reation Areas for Dogs possible. We urge everyone to come out and support this event. Bring your dog on a leash and enjoy the day in the park together while you browse among the pet related displays at the Pet Fair or participate in the Cos-

    tume Contest. If you would

    like to enter your dog (or you and your dog) in the Costume Contest you can register ahead of time or at the Fair, for more informa-tion on the event call the Friends

  • Gloria Nilson, REALTORS, Real Living held their grand opening celebration on September 22 at their new location at 963 Holmdel Road. There was a ribbon cutting ceremony, which Holmdel Mayor Pat Impreveduto and Deputy Mayor Serena DiMaso attended.

    Dana DAgostino-Ryser, Manager of the Holmdel branch, noted that the original location at 31 West Main Street was built in 1892 and was the second office opened by Gloria Nilson in the mid-1970s. We have outgrown the old building and needed to be in a more professional environment where we can better serve our clients. Tech-nology is a crucial part of our business and the old build-ing could not handle the newer systems we have in place. The new building is completely wireless and features two conference rooms, large resource room and a mobile area.

  • Oak Hill Academy is in the process of having solar panels installed on the roofs of five of their school buildings. The gymnasium, Pre-Kindergarten building, library, Lower School, and the new Science Center building will benefit from these panels. The in-stallation has been ongoing all summer and through September.

    Headmaster Joseph Pacelli explained that without the state program, which encouraged people to be-gin using solar, the solar panels would have been very expensive. The program ends on December 31, 2011, however, Oak Hill Academy has already applied for the program, and been certified and approved. They are just now having the solar panels installed. This incentive program states that a family, business or school wants to help reduce the energy used in your community by using solar. We looked into this and found that this program would fit our needs. The company we chose to install the panels is Mercury Solar Systems, which is nationwide and state certified to do the work. There is no money out of pocket with this program. It is a lease/purchase program and after 7 years the solar panels will be the property of Oak Hill Academy.

    The new Science and Environmental Center was one building on which solar panels were installed.


    34 OCTOBER 2011

  • At the back of the Science and Environmental Center adjacent to the outdoor classroom is the new greenhouse at Oak Hill Academy. Still in the process of completion when this photo was taken, the greenhouse will have matching stones and drainage surrounding the lower section to coincide with the rest of the building.

    Energy made by the sun supersedes energy coming in by JCP&L. Converters were in-stalled on the buildings to monitor the energy produced. Additionally, Solar Renewable Energy Certificates or SRECs are earned according to the wattage produced. Every month the meters are read, data is recorded and the credits earned are noted. These credits are sold and the money made by selling the certificate will now balance out with the energy being pulled in from JCP&L. According to Wikipedia, the additional income received from selling SRECs increases the economic value of a solar investment and assists with the financability of solar technology. When we first looked at all of this last year around this time, SRECs were selling for $480. Now, in New Jersey they are selling at $680, said Headmaster Pacelli. The company installing the panels will also donate software for the schools network that will show the energy being used each day in each building.

    Another exciting addition to Oak Hill Academy is their greenhouse which was built at the back of the Science Center, next to the outdoor classroom area. Plants and herbs can be started in the fall outside and then brought into the greenhouse, explained Mr. Pacelli. The greenhouse will have exhaust fans, a heating unit to supplement if needed, and a sink. Pre-Kindergarten classes will be able to have a greenhouse club. It is an important addition to the new Science Center and an excellent hands-on tool for the students.

    The final good news from Headmaster Pacelli is that IPads were anonymously donated to the school just prior to the end of school last year. Teachers took them home during the summer to do practice work and research how they would work with their students. They returned offering positive feedback and Mr. Pacelli then distributed them to the students classes. Eight of them will be shared by the Pre-Kindergarten classes; eight will be for the Kindergarten through fourth grade Heads-On/Hands-On program with Mrs. Vacca; and six-teen of them will go to the Technology Center for fifth through eighth grades.

    This fall, celebrate the harvest in fine, Adirondack tradition.

    The Adirondack Mountains A Brief History of Ancient RocksTowering above New Yorks diverse landscape, the Adirondack Mountains stand as a monu-

    ment to the ice age. Five million years ago, small alpine glaciers carved their way through the Northeastern United States. As they moved through what is now the Adirondack Region, gla-cial erratics - stones deposited by the glacier - were scattered across the landscape. Massive chunks of ice broke away from the glacier, and were buried beneath sand and gravel washed from the ice. As these ice chunks melted, depressions, called kettle holes, were formed. When the kettle hole extended below the water table, a pond was created. Many of the small, circu-lar ponds you see while hiking in the high peaks began as kettle holes.

    Over millennia, as glaciers carved away the landscape, mountains began to take shape. Unlike the Rockies and the Appalachians, the Adirondack Mountains do not form a connected range, but rather a 160-mile wide dome of more than 100 peaks. Although the mountains are formed from ancient rocks more than 1,000 million years old, geologically, the dome is a newborn. The Adirondack Peaks can be anywhere from 1,200 feet tall to well over 5,000 feet tall, and the 46 tallest summits above 4,000 feet are called the High Peaks. Although four peaks were later discovered to measure less than 4,000 feet, they are still considered Adirondack High Peaks.

    The highest of them all is Mount Marcy, towering 5,344 feet above sea level. It is one of the most distinctive features of the Adirondack landscape. Mount Marcy is home to Lake Tear of the Clouds, the highest lake in New York State at 4,292 feet, and the source of the Hudson River.


  • Heeding to warnings of the destruction Hurricane Irene carried on her visit through New Jersey, notably Colts Neck, Mayor James Schatzle and Township Department Heads met on Friday, August 26 to plan for the storm and to review the towns Emergency Operations Plan.

    When the worst part of the storm hit on Sunday, August 28, most of Colts Neck Township lost power and many residents remained without power until Friday, September 2.

    Police, First Aid, and the Fire Department responded to over 100 calls that Sunday. The Emergency Operations Center stayed open on Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and was staffed by members of the Township Committee and volunteers. Mayor Schatzle had nightly conference calls with Governor Christie to assess the storms impact and its damages. The County designated Colts Neck High School as a County Shelter and at the height of the storm, 830 people were safe, dry, warm and fed. Although no Colts Neck residents went to the high school, Mayor Schatzle said having the shelter was a necessity and a huge accomplishment.

    Security was a major concern but the Mayor had a plan in place and happily reported that no police problems were reported and there were only two first aid calls. Mayor Schatzle commended the police, first aid and fire department. They came through with flying colors. He noted that although Colts Neck has a plan to shelter people in an emergency, they did not have one to offer con-venience in an emergency or a storm such as this one. He added that while most residents were not nasty when calling for information about their power outages, they wanted answers as to when it would be back on. Living in Colts Neck all his life, Mayor Schatzle knew what it was like when the power went out. On his mind before and during Hurricane Irene was the concern of loss of electricity, which would mean toilets could not be flushed and showers could be used. JCP&L told us this would be a multi-day event (loss of electricity), and it was evident that we would need to put something together quickly, shared the Mayor. By Tuesday, August 30, Comfort Stations were set up at the First Aid and Fire Department that allowed showers, water, and food to be utilized by Colts Neck residents. The Comfort Stations were open for four hours at a time to accommodate those in need.

    At the Township meeting, Mayor Schatzle publicly thanked Township em-ployees who went above and beyond, Emergency Services, and neighbors helping neighbors, all of whom volunteered throughout the storm. I am just so proud of the residents in Colts Neck for working together, for interact-ing with one another. I heard story after story of how neighbors were help-ing neighbors. Those who had generators shared their power to help maintain refrigerators; others brought food to older residents in dire need during this crisis. It was heartwarming to know that everyone worked together.

    Community Magazine would like to acknowledge Colts Neck Mayor James Schatzle for his quick response in aiding the residents. His understanding of what residents had to deal with was genuine and his efforts to ease their dis-comfort are to be commended.

    Autumn In Colts Neck Kitchen Tour & More Set For Friday, October, 14


  • October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Friends Forever, an organization started by 15 year old cousins Michael Ruane and Erika Rech, now 18, is encouraging young women to take charge of their health by performing monthly breast self examinations. Check Yourself Out! is their reminder to do just that.

    The goal of Breast Friends Forever is to support individuals and their families who are fighting breast cancer; to help them deal with the consequences of this diagnosis by providing emotional, intellectual, spiritual and financial support, and resources in their time of need. Michael explained, The idea for the charity came from watching my three aunts fight their battle with breast cancer. My Aunt told me how expensive all of the treatments were and I thought, what about all of the people that couldnt afford treatment? It was then that we started Breast Friends Forever. We have met so many women that are on disability and are having trouble making ends meet, because of their treatments. So we raised money to help them. Everyone raises money for the cure, but we cant and wont forget the women struggling now.

    They are heroes and if we can, in some way, relieve any of their burdens, we will.

    Erika added, What we started when we were fifteen has grown so large. We have raised over $300,000. That couldnt have been done without the wonderful volunteers and supporters who come out to every event. We have seen a good idea feed on itself and grow to service women, not only in New Jersey, but in 6 other states as well. Today, I hope that we have made it easier for hundreds of women to face breast cancer, knowing that they are not alone, and hopefully, have raised awareness among young women about the impor-tance of self exam through our Check Yourself Out program.

    Troop 290 Spotlights Christopher MotolaOver the spring and summer, several Scouts were working to complete their Eagle Scout Leadership Service Projects. This month, well highlight Christopher Motola, who has completed his project and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Chris is currently a Junior at Colts Neck High School.

    For his project, Chris chose to transform the 5th Grade Court-yard at the Conover Road Ele-mentary School into an Outdoor Classroom. The Courtyard was an unused and neglected area of the school. Chris raised money through a garage sale and dona-tions from supportive members of the community. Under his su-pervision, volunteers constructed 8 benches and a podium. A flag and an outdoor blackboard were purchased for the space. In addition, the flower beds in the Courtyard were weeded and mulched and debris was removed. Chris spent 70 hours planning the project and 103 hours supervising its completion. There were 55 volunteers who worked a total of 331 hours. The project took over

    1 year to complete and cost approximately $2900, much of which much was donated. Now the courtyard is a place for teachers to take their students that is peaceful and conducive to learning.

    Chris picked this project because he is very interested in becoming a teacher. He knew from personal experience that when the weather gets nice outside, students dont really want to be in the classroom anymore. He thought it would be nice to have a place where teachers could take

    their students to learn and the students could enjoy the outdoors. In addition, he wanted to be able to give something back to the schools that he had already attend-ed. He knew that in the current economic

    climate, the school system could definitely benefit from this proj-ect.

    Chris received the Colts Neck Board of Education Excellence Award on May 11, 2011 for his contributions to the school sys-tem. The award was presented at the final Board of Education meeting for the school year and was held at the Colts Neck In.. The award recognizes him for his contributions to the school system and the enhancements he has made to the school sys-tem. He was the youngest re-

    cipient this year.Our Troop meetings occur on Wednes-

    day evenings. We have a jam packed cal-endar of activities for this school year! If you are interested in joining our troop, please contact Joe Lelesi at [email protected] for more information.


    Colts Neck gallery helps create collectionsArt collectors in Monmouth County have a new place to explore with the recent opening of a gallery in Colts Neck.

    Balbabyan Gallery, on Route 34, handles the sales brokering, restoration and conservation of paintings, frames, sculptures and more.

    The owner, Khachatur Bal-babyan, a native Armenian and an artist himself, is well-versed in world-renowned artists from the Early Renaissance to 19th century. The gallerys collection reflects his specialization of Old Masters, Impressionists and Eu-ropean religious paintings.

    A painting not just a piece of canvas, its unique. It has its own energy and destiny, Balbabyan said. Some of the paintings have 300 to 400 years of history, which means they could have been through 6-7 generations.

    Balbabyan attended art schools beginning at the age of eight. He graduated from Architectural University in Ar-menia with the full course of art and art history classes. He also attended the Sothebys Institute of Art in New York.

    Balbabyan always tries to col-lect as much history and infor-mation about a piece as he can. According to him, most of the pieces have a collectors seal or a record of prior owners, known as provenance.

    Balbabyan keeps anywhere from 30 to 50 paintings in the gallery, so that prospective buy-ers can come see and feel the

    selection of artwork available. Balbabyan hopes the display will allow a piece to catch a buyers eye at first glance.

    The pieces I have prove their value with their age and qual-ity, he said. Every piece I have, I found in the same manner. It just caught my eye and I fell in love with it.

    Some of the artists Balbabyan showcases include 19th and ear-ly 20th century French Expres-sionists, Eugene Galien-Laloue and Emilie Othon Friesz. There are also paintings by 17th cen-tury Dutch landscape painter, Jacob van Ruisdael, and 17th century Dutch painter Gerrit Dou, who was a pupil of Rem-brandt. Sixteenth and 17th century Italian painters, such as Annibale Carracci and Gui-do Reni, are also represented. The gallery also has paintings

    from the English, Ger-man, Dutch and French schools.

    Balbabyan Gallery also provides conserva-tion and restoration of paintings. According to Balbabyan, after years of being exposed to the elements, dust and smoke create a brown-ism film on the canvas, so most paintings have to be cleaned.

    When I restore a piece, Im like a doctor, Balbabyan said. I give paintings a second life.

    Antique frame restoration is another specialty of the gal-lery. According to Balbabyan, it is rare to find a piece with its original frame, so usually people order a contemporary or replica frame, which may not be the best fit for the piece.

    A paintings frame is a lot like clothing for a person, Balbaby-an said. You can tell a lot about a painting from the frame.

    The gallery takes on the chal-lenge of finding frames from the time period of the painting. It usually takes about a month

    of looking for a specific size from a certain time period, but when a match is found, Bal-babyan feels like it was meant to be; like the painting and frame found each other.

    The gallery is planning to host about four exhibitions per year, with the first scheduled for October 15-22. There will be an opening celebration from 4-9

    p.m. on Saturday, October 15 with hors doeuvres. The exhibi-tion will be open to the general public on October 16-22 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • The HFA Pee Wee Football Team gladly accepted an in-vitation to kick off their season with a pre-season game at the second annual AYF Youth Football Hall of Fame Jam-boree in Canton, Ohio on Sunday, August 21, 2011.

    Over the weekend, the players took in an NFL pre-season football game between the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions. They also visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame and museum - the players had a great time touring the HOF museum and playing a pick-up game on the HOF turf field.

    The weekend was capped off on Sunday as teams from all over the country played football at Walsh University in North Canton, Ohio. The Holmdel Pee Wee team faced a very tough opponent in the Spottyslyvania Cougars of Vir-ginia. Despite a 6-20 loss, Pee Wee Head Coach Mike Te-deschi said I was really proud of the way our team played. We did not back down against a top-rated, Division 1 team and the boys never gave up. It was a great way to start off the season. From start to finish, this weekend gave the boys memories that will last a lifetime. Based on our play in Ohio, I know we are ready for our upcoming season.

    The Community YMCAs Aquarockets swim team earned top spots at the 2011 YMCA National Long Course Swimming Championships, held in Atlanta, Georgia in July with the boys team ranking 9th overall and 13 local swimmers earning All American status (placing in top 20 of an event).

    Our swimmers continue to excel at Y Nationals and we are very proud of all their efforts, said Coach Jack Caucino, President of the National YMCA Coaches Advisory Committee. Our team scored 19th overall out of 230 national teams.

    Twenty-three swimmers from 16 local schools qualified this spring to compete at YMCA Nationals: Harrison Cefalo, Joe Con-nors, Eddie Healy, Sean Dunne, Matt Zebrowski and Daniel Hell-man, Christian Brothers Academy; Samuel Lynch, Ocean Town-ship High School; Megan Foran, Middletown South High School; Courtney Delehanty, Shore Regional; Joe Torres, Marlboro High School; Maureen McKenna, Sayerville High School; Dave Carl-son, Manasquan High School; Shannon Slate, Sarah Finn, Red Bank Catholic; Andrew Weber and Katie McKay, Holmdel High School; Alex DAnna, Colts Neck High School; Alex Lin, The Ran-ney School; Chris Vadala, Middletown North High School; Alexis Walsh, Raritan High School; Chris Tucker, St. Marys Elementary School; Jackie Van Lew, Tinton Falls Middle School; and Tyler Kauth, Old Bridge Middle School.

    The Red Bank Aquarockets is a competitive swim team that com-petes in the National YMCA Swimming and Diving and the United States Swimming organizations.

    CILU Members Come Together For Thirteenth Annual Picnic

    By Susan Murphy

    Citizens for Informed Land Use (CILU) held their annual picnic of 13 years on September 10 at Veterans Park in Holmdel. The picnic is held so everyone can get together and have a good time, said CILU President Anthony Cooper. Prior to the start of the picnic the group had a quiet moment to reflect and remember the events of September 11, 2001, said President Cooper.

    Regina Kaufman, former Vice President of Research for CILU, was honored for her 11 years of dedication to this position. She was presented with a book, Wild New Jersey, Nature Adventures in the Garden State, which was signed by the books author. It was very nice to receive the book and especially to have it signed by the author, said Mrs. Kaufman. Eleven years ago she designed the t-shirt for CILU that is still worn by members and others in the community.

    In 1998, Holmdel residents concerned about rapid growth and development in town formed CILU to promote informed and thoughtful land use, protect natural resources, and preserve the quality of life. Or as Mrs. Kaufman said simply, that is when CILU began preserving the ribbons of green in Holmdel.
