Even though the majority of us are feeling the pinch of this economy at present, usually we know where our next meal is coming from, have the ability to afford clothing and school supplies for our children, or enjoy a nice place to kick back and relax. Even if we are not where we would like to be this Summer, it always is necessary to remind ourselves that there are those around us who are less fortunate and could use a hand. One does not need to go to Africa to find hunger, or Haiti or Japan to find the orphaned, or whole families who have had their lives torn apart. There are people in our own neighborhoods, schools and cities that need our help as Summer fades and Winter approaches with a fresh set of challenges.In Thurston County, there is no shortage of ways to positively impact our community for the better. Local residents and businesses have taken it upon themselves to create ways to help those in need in preparation for Fall. Some of them, like supporting the Conchetta House (an organization that helps single-parents and their children to find housing while completing college) can be as easy as a click or a text! Located in East Olympia, the Conchetta house is currently supporting four mothers and eight children by matching them with subsidized housing and other critical resources. However, their efforts require money, the Conchetta House needs your help to win much needed funding from Pepsi’s Refresh Project. The project is devoted to awarding grant money to the organizations or community start-ups with the highest votes, in various amounts each month. The Conchetta House needs at least $50,000 to continue their work and expand their ability to take on more families. You have until early November to get all of your votes in. You can vote up to five times per day, or if you look under a lucky Pepsi bottle cap, you could win 100 power votes to put toward various ideas of your choice.

Tips for Healthy and Safe Holiday Eating

first_imgFacebook21Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Public Health and Social ServicesThe holidays are right around the corner. It can be a stressful time of year and most of us tend to overeat less healthy foods during the holiday season. It’s OK to enjoy your favorite treats during these special times, but if you overdo it you could end up feeling groggy and won’t have enough energy to do all the fun things you want to during this exciting time of year. By eating healthy on most days you will feel good and have more energy to enjoy all the season has to offer. Here are some tips to eating healthier during the holiday season:Don’t skip breakfast. Skipping the most important meal of the day can make you feel overly hungry later in the day which can lead to overeating.Do some physical activity most days of the week. Keeping active will help keep your appetite in check and will also burn some calories from your favorite treats.Bring a healthy dish to the holiday party. That way you know there will be something you can eat that won’t make you feel sluggish later.Don’t linger by the food table at parties. Ever hear the phrase out of sight out of mind?It’s ok to indulge in a few holiday treats. Just balance those treats with healthy options. Photo courtesy: Thurston County Public HealthEnjoy smaller portions of your favorite treats. You don’t have to restrict yourself from the things you love during the holidays. A few bites of your favorite treat will be much more enjoyable than eating it until you feel like a stuffed Thanksgiving turkey.Unfortunately, holiday parties and meals can also be a source of food borne illness. Keep your family and friends safe by using safe cooking practices, including:Clean. Always wash your hands before cooking or serving food; wash produce and fruits under running water before using them; never put cooked food on a plate that previously held raw food.Separate. Keep raw meat, poultry, eggs, and fish away from foods that will not cooked; wash hands, utensils, and cutting boards that had raw meat, poultry, eggs or fish on them with warm water and soap.Enjoy holiday celebrations and keep them safe by ensuring you cook all food, especially meat, completely. Cook. Use a food thermometer to check doneness, especially for meat, poultry, eggs or fish; 145 °F for steak, pork, veal, chops; 160 °F for hamburger; and 165 °F for poultry, combined or stuffed meats, and leftovers.Chill. Put leftovers away in the refrigerator within two hours; use ice to keep foods cold for buffets and parties; chill the serving platter/bowl to help the food stay cool longer.When feeding a crowd, only put out some of the perishable food, resupplying as needed and keeping the rest either hot or cold. This keeps bacteria, which can cause illness, from growing in the food.I hope you can use these tips to have a most pleasant and healthy holiday season.last_img read more

Runaway Spotted In Red Bank!

first_imgLITA FORD, THE rock goddess and certified platinum solo recording artist was in Red Bank this past weekend, shooting photos around town for her new solo CD “Living Like A Runaway.” (Release date June 19). She was working with photographer and Rumson resident Mark Weiss, who is acting as both photographer and art director for her new release.Ford began her career at age 16 with Joan Jett when they were members of the all-girl rock band “The Runaways.”Lita took a break from the photo shoot on Sunday, March 18, to stop by Banegas Gallery at 43 Broad Street, where she signed a painting of herself by artist David Banegas, which was inspired by a 1983 photo by Weiss. She also signed a painting of her signature “Black Widow” BC Rich Warlock guitar.“Mark and David are brilliant together,” Ford said. “It was my pleasure to meet David and see his wonderful work. Mark is like a brother to me and the best at what he does, which is why I chose him to do the cover of ”Living Like A Runaway.” The two of them together are awesome.”Banegas and Weiss, first met in December at the “Holiday Flavour” event at the Oyster Point to benefit Lunch Break. Weiss has been auctioning his famous rock photographs to benefit the Red Bank soup kitchen. At the event, Banegas was painting “live” from a photo of Elvis. His unique execution of the image caught Weiss’s eye. The two had an idea to have David paint Weiss’s most iconic rock ‘n’ roll images. Both men, who as artists create visuals live and in the moment, want their work to help bring focus and funds to charitable causes. They have been busy collaborating both on Broad Street and beyond, and most recently, Banegas painted Weiss’s images “live” at events for rock luminaries such as Axl Rose and Zakk Wylde. The paintings have been signed by the artists and the proceeds donated to charities, such as the Grammy’s own MusiCares. The two artists recently returned from a rock ‘n roll cruise featuring a gallery of Weiss’s classic Van Halen photographs. Banegas painted live from Weiss’s 1981 photo of David Lee Rothand created a painting of Eddie Van Halen’s signature guitar. Both paintings are now on display at the gallery.Banegas grew up in Bolivia and has been painting since he was 6 years old. He explains his unique work as “something that happens at the moment, it flows, I can’t explain it.” If there is a name for this method it would be ‘Action Painting’, it is done layer upon layer and is created with pure feeling.” Once he captures the eyes, he is “locked in place and the rest of the painting then follows.” “It comes from letting go of all fears and painting what is felt and so this is a transcendent moment.”To learn more about Banegas and Weiss visit their websites at www.WEISSGUYgallery.com and www.davidbanegas.comLita Ford will be live in concert at the Prudential Center in Newark on July 11th with Def Leppard and Poison. www.litafordonline.comlast_img read more

‘Star Trek’ Prop Repaired, Being Donated to Space Center

first_imgBy John BurtonATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Thanks to the passion of an avid fan and the work of a borough business specializing in repairing and restoring boats, another kind of vessel – this one from the original Star Trek TV series – will have a chance to “live long and prosper.”[private]Adam Schneider and the owner and workers from Master Shipwrights, 25 West Highland Ave., were joined by hundreds of fans and friends Saturday, June 22, for the unveiling of the newly restored Galileo. The prop shuttle spaceship was used in about seven episodes during the series’ 1967 season to transport crew members from the fictional U.S.S. Starship Enterprise as they traveled through the distant galaxies, encountering adventures and friendly and warlike aliens, offering a look at what the future might hold.Schneider, a Long Branch resident who previously described himself as “a science fiction kind of guy,” bought the approximately 24-foot, mostly wooden faux spaceship for $70,000 from an Ohio auction house. The Galileo was in terrible condition when he bought it, having changed ownership over the years; it had been sitting in an Ohio backyard for a number of years, exposed to the elements.After some initial research, Schneider hired Master Shipwrights to restore the prop to its former science-fiction glory, he said.Schneider declined to say how much the restoration project finally cost.“This is amazing for a 47-year-old … something,” Schneider said as he stood with his wife Leslie and looked at the completed project. A person in the audience immediately responded “… history.”“The truth is, this is basically, unprecedented,” said Schneider, calling the piece “probably the most significant prop in TV history.“This is done for the fans,” he said of the craft now completely restored and in pristine condition.Schneider has donated the Galileo to the Space Center Houston, Texas, the Visitor Center for NASA to ensure that fans will have a chance to see it themselves.“This is the linkage between science fiction and space reality,” he said, where visitors and their imaginations can go beyond the stars.The Galileo will be on permanent display at the visitor center following the dedication, scheduled for July 31, he said.People in Saturday’s crowd, many in costumes evoking the hugely popular series, offered smiles and encouragement.“I think she turned out great,” said Dave Lynch, Cheltenham, Pa., who was wearing what is probably best described as a dress uniform for an Enterprise crew member.Lynch, who is a member of the New Brunswick chapter of Star Fleet International, a Star Trek fan club, said the continuing appeal of the show is about “promoting a possible future,” that includes space exploration.“I feel its premise is what can be,” offered Jeff Victor, a member of USS Challenger, the Ocean-Monmouth counties chapter of Starfleet, the international Star Trek fan association, who was wearing a yellow starship uniform shirt. “Even though it’s fiction, it’s worth aspiring to.”[/private]View the Galileo photo gallery here.last_img read more

Cyclists Plan Red Bank Road Race

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – Professional cyclists could be taking competitive laps around the borough this summer, organizers are hoping.The National Cycling Association (NCA) and the USA CRITS Professional Cycling League want borough officials to approve its plan to hold a championship cycling event on Aug. 6 that organizers say would draw roughly 200 professional racing cyclists and more than 5,000 spectators.Organizers have already found a primary sponsor:  Triumph Brewing Company has agreed to support the proposed event, according to Jack Simes, chief executive officer for NCA and producer for Red Bank Championship Cycling. Simes is also the co-founder of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Pro Cycling Championship.Triumph, which has locations in New Hope, Pennsylvania, and Princeton, is constructing a Red Bank site on Bridge Avenue, as part of the West Side Lofts project.Adam Rechnitz, an area resident, is owner and operator of the brewing company, and he and his twin brother, Josh, are both cycling enthusiasts who have thrown their support behind the event, Simes said.Simes said organizers had a meeting with the borough Special Events Committee and organizers are planning to bring a slightly revised plan back to the committee as soon as it can be scheduled. “It’s already 2016 and there’s a lot of planning to do,” Simes pointed out.The committee includes borough administrator Stanley Sickels, a police department representative as well as a representative from the borough council, among others, who evaluate the proposals before making their recommendations and forward them to the mayor and council, who have the final say on approval.Organizers also met with James Scavone and Amanda Lynn, executive director and program manager for Red Bank RiverCenter, respectively, to stress what organizers say will be an economic benefit for the business community. “It was quite well received,” by the RiverCenter representatives, said Simes.RiverCenter is the management and advocacy organization for the borough’s commercial Special Improvement District.“From the meetings we had, they seem genuinely interested in this and having a well run event in Red Bank,” said event director Ryan Oelkers, a former professional racing cyclist who spent 10 years on the race circuit, referring to borough representatives.“We think Red Bank is the perfect venue for the event we want to run there,” Oelkers said. “You have the Navesink River there; you have the bars and restaurants. It just seems like a great fit.”Plans call for the main event staged by USA CRITS, in which racers compete in a .99-mile criterium street event. The races will start and end on Broad Street with the route on Harding Road, Clay Street, Canal Street, Mechanic Street, Globe Court and on to East Front Street, through the borough’s downtown, according to information provided to the special events committee. Those races would take place in the early evening, probably starting at 7 p.m.Criterium racing involves high-speed contests conducted in an active, urban environment. If approved, it will be one of 13 races USA CRITS will hold between March 19 and Sept. 17, from Boston, Massachusetts, to Clearwater, Florida, to Boise, Idaho and St. Louis, Missouri, and are expected to attract some of the best cyclists from around the world. Racers will compete for more than a total of $250,000 in prize money for the series of races.In addition to the main event, organizers are planning supporting activities. There will a “Gran Fondo” (Italian for “Large Ride”), an amateur ride from Red Bank to Freehold and back that would be open to riders of all abilities. In addition, Simes said plans call for an ongoing youth program to promote safety and cycling as a healthy lifestyle activity. “Cycling has proven to be a great activity in fighting childhood obesity,” Simes said. “More so than many other sports.”“This will be something that will be good for business, good for the cafes and restaurants,” with hopes that this will become an annual event, Simes said.Mayor Pasquale Menna said he didn’t have any details about the proposal, but noted a similar annual event held in the borough more than 20 years ago. That event was eventually discontinued because of complaints from residents and businesses, according to the mayor.Neighboring Fair Haven hosted Tour de Fair Haven cycling races for five years but canceled the event after a racer was killed colliding with a race official in 2013.A similar event, the Athens, Georgia, Twilight Criterium, has been held for 30 years. And, according to Oelkers, “It’s their biggest night and day in their calendar year,” of events, a clear success for local businesses.Oelkers also suspected August is a good time for the event, given it’s a traditionally slow period for attractions.last_img read more

Former Soccer Treasurer Admits To $400,000 Theft

first_imgBy Jay Cook |FREEHOLD – The former treasurer of the Freehold Soccer League pleaded guilty earlier this week to stealing over $400,000 from the youth recreational and travel league where he volunteered, said Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.Anthony Gallo, 57, of Freehold Township, pleaded guilty Monday to second degree theft before Superior Court Judge Vincent N. Falcetano Jr. Gallo, the CEO of a financial services firm, faces a maximum term of six years in state prison. He must pay $280,000 in restitution when he returns for sentencing before Judge Falcetano on January 19, 2018, per terms of the plea agreement, Gramiccioni said.An investigation into Gallo’s activity began in March 2016 when Freehold Soccer League president Bryan Patmore alerted authorities about missing funds and unpaid uniform bills connected to the league’s account, according to Gramiccioni. The prosecutor’s office’s Financial Crimes Unit alleged Gallo swiped over $400,000 from those league accounts.Law enforcement authorities maintain Gallo wrote checks to himself, his company, Beacon Financial Services, and “cash” totaling over $300,000, Gramiccioni announced in March. Gallo also allegedly made numerous ATM withdrawals amounting to over $120,000 from the league’s account. He used league funds to pay personal expenses totaling over $25,000, including $12,000 for his Verizon Wireless bills, thousands of dollars at Honda of Freehold, other household bills, and for restaurants and shopping, the prosecutor said.Before being charged, Gallo paid back more than $119,000 into league accounts in an effort to prevent his crime from being detected, Gramiccioni said.A Monmouth County grand jury returned a 14-count indictment charging Gallo of the theft in September, the prosecutor’s office announced at the time.Patmore, the league president, did not return a request for comment by press time on Wednesday. But in April 2016, he penned a post on the Freehold Soccer League’s public Facebook page talking about the “difficult and upsetting situation in which we find ourselves.”“On behalf of the FSL board, I would like to express our deep regret over this serious matter,” Patmore wrote. “We take our responsibility of managing this great club extremely seriously. Our job is to ensure the members of this organization Honor the Children, Honor the Game, Honor the Town and finally Honor the League.”Patmore also said the Freehold Soccer League would create an advisory board of current and former league members to oversee the league’s financial system. A third-party audit company and a certified public accountant would also be retained to review the books every year, he said.“We are soliciting the members of our community to help in any way they can,” Patmore wrote. “Volunteer an hour, volunteer a day, let’s pull together to make this club the best in the state of New Jersey.”This article was first published in the Nov. 16-23, 2017 print edition of the Two River Times.last_img read more
