Growing Up Italian
Two members of Vinelands ItalianAmerican community are honored
for their Spirit of Achievement.

Robert Buono, Sr. and Piera Infranco Gravenor will be honored

at the 28th Annual Gala Ball of the Italian Cultural Foundation
of South Jersey.

he Italian Cultural Foundation of South Jersey is

geared up to present its 28th Annual Gala Ball
on Saturday, October 24, at The Greenview Inn
at Eastlyn Golf Course. Continuing its tradition of honoring two or three notable Italian-American citizens
each year with their Spirit of Achievement Awards,
they have chosen two 2015 honoreesPiera Infranco
Gravenor and Bob Buono, Sr.
Dr. Piera Gravenor was born and raised in Vineland.
Her father, Dr. Biagio Infranco, immigrated to the
United States in 1957 and later married her mother,
Sarina Porcaro, who had come to the States earlier with
her family. Piera, like her siblings Nina and Len, would
learn what it truly meant to grow up as a first-generation American; growing up Infranco brought with it
advantages and challenges. The hopes, dreams, and
goals brought to this country by her parents, not only
culminated in their own successful lives and careers,
but were instilled in their children, and have come to
fruition in who Piera is todaya devoted wife and
mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, successful
educator and administrator, volunteer and benefactor.
Piera is a hometown girl, having attended both
Sacred Heart grade school and high school, where she
later accepted her first position as an English teacher.
But education hadnt always been the path she thought
she would take. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in
Political Science from Chestnut Hill College in
Philadelphia, PA in 1981, and was accepted to Temple
University Law School immediately after. But God and
Pieras heart had a different plan, steering her in the
direction of a rewarding and successful career in education, and more importantly, toward the deep love for
her longtime sweetheart, John Gravenor, and now her
husband for the past 32 years. Piera married the love of
her life in 1983 and they have two daughters, Alicia and
Lexi. Pieras 4-year old granddaughter, Adrianna Lilla,

Meet Vinelands
BOE Candidates
ast Tuesday evening, the Greater Vineland
Chamber of Commerce hosted a
Candidates Forum at Wallace Middle
School for the seven candidates seeking one of
four seats on the Vineland Board of Education in
the November 3 election. The five candidates
seeking election to one of the three, three-year
terms are Inez Acosta (Incumbent), Jeffrey M.
Bordley, Xavier Cardona, Cedric Holmes and
Christopher Jennings (Incumbent). Donald
Anthony Carter and F. John Sbrana vie for a
one-year term.
The forum was videotaped by VPS TV and
will be rebroadcast on Comcast Channel 9 and
Verizon FiOS Channel 41 several times prior to
the election.
The Grapevine, like the GVCC, seeks to provide voters with information they need to make
an informed decision at the polls. Toward that
end, we have asked all seven BOE candidates to
answer questions that we include this week in
their profiles, beginning on page 20.
Next week, we will present profiles of the
four candidates running for two open seats on
the Cumberland County Board of Chosen
Freeholders. The following week, profiles of
the four candidates for two open New Jersey
Assembly seats will be published.

as professional football
jumped the shark? In case
youre not familiar with the
phrase, it refers to the episode
of Happy Days where Fonzie jumps over a
shark on water skis.
The episode was the beginning of the end
of the popular TV series because it was the
show that took them from silly to stupid.
Since then, its been used to mark those
seminal moments when things change so
radically for the worse that there is no
chance for recovery.
Well, professional football has been on
a roll for the last 50 years, but I wonder if
Deflategate and the sudden surge in fantasy football arent the harbingers of big
changes in how and why we watch the game.
Deflategate was the year-long, courtroom drama over cheating (deflating footballs for their team to provide their quarterback an advantage) by the World
Champion New England Patriots.
After a months-long investigation, the
football commissioner determined that the
Patriots had, indeed, cheated and doled
out punishment. The Patriots quarterback
fought the commissioners decision in
court and won a stay of execution on the
punishment (a five-game suspension).
In other words, cheating is okay if you
have good lawyers. But the worst part is the
growth of the fantasy football craze. If you
watch TV for any length of time, youre
guaranteed of two thingsyoull see an ad
for toenail fungus medication and youll see
an ad for one of the sports betting sites.
Fantasy football has become, in the last
couple of years, bigger than the game
itself. Guys I used to talk football with no
longer root for their team; now they
root for their fantasy draft picks.
Were a nation of 300 million people
and, according to recent surveys, about a
fourth (75 million people) play some form
of fantasy football each week.
Its become a multi-billion dollar industry and when theres that much money
involved, theres way too much chance of
something fishy going on (and I dont mean
just in the shark tank).
For instance, for the first week of this
season, my cable provider gave its subscribers free access to every single professional football game to try and sell their
total game package. It was the first week-

end so most of the games began at 1 p.m.

I was all set in my new La-Z-Boy recliner.
Id laid in a supply of my favorite snacks
and drinks; my wife was busy doing something away from home and Id settled in for
an estimated 11 straight hours of football.
There were eight or nine games beginning at 1 p.m. I was determined to watch
every single one of them andwith the aid
of my trusty clickerI wouldnt have to move
anything but my eyeballs and my finger.
At the first timeout of my primary game,
I switched to my second choice and found
it also in a timeout. So I tried my third
choice: Timeout. Fourth: Timeout. Fifth:
Timeout. It wasnt until I hit the sixth
game that I actually saw a game in progress.
Now, Ill admit Im a clicker fanatic (it
drives my wife crazy but its the only real
control I have in the whole house) and Ive
encountered the commercials-at-thesame-time phenomena many, many times
watching regular network shows.
That (and the volume increase during
those aforementioned commercials) are
two of my biggest pet peeves.
But these are games. Most timeouts
arent called by the games participants
(each team is allowed six per game) but
rather by the games officials who get told
by games sponsors when to stop the
action to sell some product (very often
these days fantasy football betting sites).
I thought it kind of an odd coincidence
andlike most cops, doctors and journalistsI just dont like coincidences. So I
switched to a baseball channel and, sure
enough, a game was in progress. I
switched to a movie channel and, sure
enough, a movie was in progress. I experimented throughout the rest of the day and
only once did I go from a timeout to a
game in progress.
Now, Im not saying that theres anything suspicious going on, but one of the
things you hear the experts say all the
time is that if you control the tempo you
control the game.
Remember, were talking billions of dollars at stake every single week. In fact, I
read just last week that an employee of one
of the two big fantasy betting sites with
inside information access won thousands
of dollars from the other big fantasy site.
Sounds like the sharks are smelling
blood. I

Palma To Conduct
Delgado Receives 2015 Vocational Service Award
While youll rarely see him anywhere
near a spotlight, Vinelands own Joe
Delgado, received some well-deserved
recognition from Rotary District 7640
(representing southern New Jersey) as
he was named the Districts 2015
Vocational Service Award recipient. Only
the fifth Vineland Rotary member to
receive this award, Delgado exemplifies
service in every way.
I couldnt think of anyone more deserving of this award than Joe, said Vineland Rotary Club President, Wayne Triantos.
In addition to everything he does as part of our club, Joe is the first person to
volunteer to help you move, or fix a light switchand the first to donate his time.
He wants no credit and expects nothing in return. He simply likes helping others.
After joining Rotary in 2004, Delgado focused on the clubs community service
activities and became the Chairman of that committee the following year. Since
then, Delgado has led the clubs efforts in a wide variety of activities and programs including Tiny Tim caroling, Adopt-A-Road cleanups, holiday parties for
special needs students, outreach at the Vineland Developmental Center, blood
drives, and more. While his contributions are many, Joe was instrumental in the
creation of the Challenger League, part of the North Vineland Little League.
Challenger League gives physically or mentally challenged youth the chance
to play baseball. The first season of play began in 2008, with two teams and 30
children ages 5-18. The children came from Cumberland, Salem, Atlantic and
Cape May counties. Since then, the Challenger League has grown to 10 teams
and more than 100 playersand has changed the lives of countless children and
their families.

Owners of Southwind Vineyard and Winery Honored

Southwind Vineyard and Winery is Deerfield Township Farm
of the Year for 2015. The owners were recognized by the
Township Committee and Recreation Committee on the Harvest
Festival stage recently.
Southwind is a family-owned vineyard and winery in Deerfield
Township, New Jersey, owned and operated by Lorre Allen and
Joseph Riley, a husband-and-wife team who bought the Allen
family farm in 2002 and the vineyard was planted in 2006.
It opened to the public in 2012. The farm has operated consistently since 1978. First as a Dressage barn built from the
ground by Fred and Jeannie Allen, now expanded to include
immaculate trails, a vineyard and winery. The property is 100 acres of lush pastures, woodlands and vineyards ripe with family, vines and animals. Southwind
Vineyard is a family owned estate vineyard, winery and dressage barn.
Former French teacher, Lorre Allen, a lover of French lifestyle and outdoor life,
decided to quit her teaching job in 2006 to convert a portion of the family property
into a vineyard. Assisted by her husband Joseph P. Riley, Lorres used her love of
the French language and of Bordeaux-style wines and the soils and climate of her
family estate to propel Southwind to growing grape vines and crafting Bordeaux
wines, sparkling wines and reasonably priced wines to suit all tastes.
The tasting room is an intimate, richly decorated space where there are public
tasting hours. Private tastings by appointment for groups of 6 to 12 people may
also be arranged. It's a great place to hold a meeting or gathering! For more information see their website

f youre anything like me,

going to a diner and having breakfast for dinner is
a real treat. The owner of
Golden Palace Diner on Delsea
Drive in Vineland assured me
that Im not the only one. Of
course, people also come for
the homemade soups, broiled
seafood, paninis, chili, burgers,
wraps, and more. There is no
shortage of choices, and the
service is fit for a king.
Ali Ozdemir and sons, Bart,
Haka and Mustafa opened The
Golden Palace, not to be confused with the Chinese restaurant of the same name, in 1991.
Since then, business has thrived as the
brothers, who now manage daily operations, continue to improve the facility, add
menu items and make customers feel at
home each and every time they walk in
the door. That family feel is one reason
why the restaurant is open even on holidays like Christmas and New Years Day
when most others in the area are closed.
We want to be here for our loyal customers, said Bart. The best part of owning this restaurant is the people. I see new
and familiar faces every day and enjoy
catering to so many people who work
locally at the hospital, shopping centers
and other nearby businesses.
It just so happens that as Bart was talking about how much his customers mean
to him, two of his favorites, Michael and
Wandy Vasquez arrived. Talk about perfect timing. Within minutes, they were
enjoying two heaping bowls of homemade
tortellini soup.
No matter where Im working on
Wednesdays, we always come for the
tortellini soup, said Michael. We love all
the food and eat here often, but never
miss a Wednesday. Even if we dont have
time to stay, we call and ask for some soup
to be put aside for pickup.
I must say, the soup did look delicious.
The restaurant is always clean and its nice
to see them changing things seasonally, like

Next Week: Grovers Mill Then



Well, it was actually the writer of the

broadcasts script, Howard Koch, who
used a map to successfully lead his alien
characters straight to this tiny farming
community. The writer had six days to
render Wells novel into an hour-long
radio drama in the form of news bulletins.
According to his account, published as
the 1970 book The Panic Broadcast, Koch
was returning from a visit with his family
up the Hudson in New York state and
somehow found himself on Route 9 in
New Jersey. He pulled into a gas station
and was given a map of the state by the
Back in New York, starting to work,
Koch writes, I spread out the map, closed
my eyes and put down the pencil point. It
happened to fall on Grovers Mill. I liked
the sound. It had an authentic ring. Also,
it was near Princeton where I could logically bring in the observatory and the
astronomer, Professor Pierson, who
became a leading character in the drama.
It makes for a good story, but unlike
Kochs appraisal of the towns name, it
doesnt quite ring true. Koch needed an
appropriate rural location to accommodate the alien landing. If his pencil point
had fallen on Camden or Newark, the
Martians would have been denied a suitable landing spot.
Forested areas werent a good idea
either, but fields afforded a safe and
believable opportunity. And the fact that
Grovers Mill was small, relatively close to
New York City and largely unknown gave
it an advantage as a location.
A pencil point may have dropped on
the map, but it was most likely accompanied by some considerable thought and a
dash of Welles input, as well see later in
the series.
Koch completed the script in time and
the broadcast went on to make a name for
itself and Welles in the annals of history.
And while it is commemorated nationwide each Halloween, Grovers Mill is the
one place where it remains recognized
every day of the year. I

VE !

n October 30, 1938, the airwaves carried news reports of

Martians landing on Earth and
threatening the human race.
Many listeners believed the broadcast, but
the story belonged to science fiction
writer H. G. Wells and his novel War of
the Worlds while the radio coverage of the
fictional attack belonged to Orson Welles,
whose idea it was to tell the tale as if the
events were happening in real time with
reporters covering them in the field. No
one from the Mercury Theater production
ever left the building during the show.
The same, however, cant be said of residents in the northeastern United States.
What made the broadcast so believable
was the news style of the story at a time
when the world was on the brink of a second world war. The thought of an attack,
by Martian, Nazi or anyone, would confirm the worst fears of American citizens
at the time, and this was what critics used
to attack Welles radio broadcast in the
aftermath of its transmission.
But timing wasnt the only factor that
lent itself to the credibility of a Martian
invasion. The location of the landing was
also an inspired choice.
Its doubtful many people in 1938
would have recognized the name Grovers
Mill. It happens to be a hamlet in central
New Jersey, part of West Windsor
Township, but it could almost be a fictional town in an American short story. It can
be reached by Cranbury Road, but travel a
short distance west and youll enter
Princeton Junction. A brief jaunt east will
land you in Cranbury.
The existence of Grovers Mill might be
a well-kept secret of this territory of New
Jersey. When I spoke to a group of workers in one of the chain stores in Princeton
Junction earlier this year, just one
employee was familiar with Grovers Mill
and only from a sign on a building he had
once passed. The others had never heard
of the location or the War of the Worlds
broadcast, yet Grovers Mill is a mere twominute drive down Cranbury Road from
So how did the Martians find such an
unknown spot in the middle of the Garden
State? A map.

Do you have any family members
employed by the district? Do you have any
other conflicts of interest that would preclude you from voting on matters pertaining to the BOE or school district?
I do not have any family members
employed by the district that I am aware
of in the capacity of teachers or support
staff. I do have a cousin who is a parttime employee as a security officer. Other
than something directly related to his
employment, I do not have any conflicts
that would preclude me from voting on
any matters that I am aware of at this
Why are you running for a seat on the
School Board?
I am dedicated to serving our youth. I
believe that our children represent our
future and issues with todays society can
only be changed or improved through
positive measures with our children. We

need to present opportunity, positive role

models, and positive peer-to-peer contact
between our youth. As a coach of several
sports (softball, baseball, soccer) and a
current and past member of several
boards (East Vineland Little League,
Vineland Police Athletic League), I am
looking forward to continuing my service
of our citys children and providing positive influences and beneficial experiences
to carry the students through their adulthood.
What do you perceive as the top two
issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
Please tell the readers of The Grapevine
how you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues
SafetyIn this day of horrific events
facing our schools, I believe that the safety of our students and staff have to be our
top priority along with fiscal responsibility. I believe that more work is necessary
to improve on our current safety measures to ensure we provide the best the
best possible education
Fiscal ResponsibilityOur school has a
large budget that has faced shortfalls in
recent years. I believe with my career as
an investigator, I have a strong background in teamwork and research I
strongly believe that as a person who is
skilled conducting research, I will be able
to present cost-effective solutions to balance the schools budget. Through this
research, I can then work with the board
as a team in order to present a fiscally
responsible budget with minimal impact
on taxpayers and without more sacrificing from our already overly tasked staff.
Please accept my sincere thanks for
allowing me this opportunity to present
myself as a candidate for the Vineland
Board of Education.

Age: 18. Lived in Vineland for 15 years.

Do you have any family members
employed by the district? Do you have any
other conflicts of interest that would preclude you from voting on matters pertaining to the BOE or school district?
No I do not have any family members
employed by the district. To the best of my
knowledge I have no conflicts of interest
that would bar me from voting on matters
pertaining to the BOE or the school district.
Why are you running for a seat on the
School Board?
I believe in giving back. The city of
Vineland and its school district have given
me so much since moving here. I believe it
is only fair to the community that after
giving me an education for 13 years, and
after helping me become who I am today
that I give back to them by running for the
Vineland Board of Education. I am running for the VBOE because I believe that
Vineland has an amazing school district
and it deserves honest and dedicated people to be members of its school board. My
running mates and I bring a fresh perspective to the board due to our very
recent activity in the school districts as
students. As recent graduates we are the
product of 13 years of board decisions and
we know the most recent issues facing
this district. I want to make the Vineland
Public School system even greater than it
already is, that is why I'm running.
What do you perceive as the top two
issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
Please tell the readers of The Grapevine
how you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues.
I believe that the two greatest issues
affecting Vineland's Public School system
is the budget shortfalls in the upcoming
fiscal year, and a lack of faith in our school
district from members of the community.
Being only one of nine board members I
know that I cannot do it all on my own.
The budget is a very important topic and

needs to be treated as seriously as possible. A $196 million budget is no joke, some

may ask how Im qualified to budget such
a large sum of money, my answer to that is
that Im not alone, I am not the sole
decider on the budget. Central administration proposes the budget and a board of
nine members as a group amend that
budget and attempt to balance it. It would
be the nine of us working together during
the budgeting process. I dont believe simply throwing money at a problem will
make it better.
Raising property taxes is not something
our city can withstand, we are a poor district with many residents who rent property as opposed to owning it. Increasing
the tax burden on our citizenry isnt the
perfect solution, its like a bandaid. As a
board member, I would work closely with
my fellow members and central administration to completely assess the entire
budget and find any weak areas where
excess funding isnt necessary. I would
work with them to find alternative, more
cost effective solutions to many of our
programs. If we can find cheaper food,
condiments, and supplies that have the
same quality as the more costly variety I
believe we should seek out those more
cost-effective services. I believe we can
make do even with a budget shortfall
ahead of us if we truly examine the budget
and find which areas that monies can be
reallocated from and to, I know our school
board can do it.
On the topic of faith in our schools, I
believe our schools are one of the best in our
area but the perceived threats and danger at
our high school scare many parents away
from sending their children to VHS.
Unfortunately, we only ever hear of the
fights or arrests that occur at our high
school, we never hear of the amazing, positive events and successes our school has
every day. We have many amazing clubs in
our school including the National Honors
Society and the Interact club. Both of these
clubs are so generous and involved in the
community but we never hear of their successful events or how they give back so
much to the community. I believe if we stop
focusing so much on the negative and more
on the positive we could bring faith back to
our school district. As a board member I
would advocate for this school district, I
would want the entire community to know
of the amazing education, clubs, plays, and
charity works that happen in our schools
every day. We truly do have an amazing
school district, one that can educate our
children better than anyone around us, if we
can just wipe away the veil of fear overshadowing our district's success, I believe we can
bring faith back to our schools and prove to
the parents of our community that our
schools are worth sending their children to.

Do you have any family members
employed by the district? Do you have any
other conflicts of interest that would preclude you from voting on matters pertaining to the BOE or school district?
I have no family members working for
the district at this time.
I have zero conflicts of interest that
would preclude me from voting on matters pertaining to the BOE.
Why are you running for a seat on the
School Board?
I believe I am running for a seat on
this board (City of Vineland School
Board) to continue some of the projects I
have been a part of and some of which I
have started, there are too many to mention. There is no personal gain for me
from this except the extreme satisfaction
that I am contributing to our community;
and in a way that it will have lasting
effects on our society. Our children are
the citizens that will one day inherit the
same ground we occupy right now. We
need to prepare them to be able to make
solid and sound decisions. We need to
give them the tools and knowledge to be
leaders in our City, County and State. We
need to be responsible stewards of our
taxpayer dollars in this City and State.
Finally, we need to educate our children

and offer all of the opportunities that are

available for them to learn. We need to
produce upstanding, educated adults and
I believe we have done that for many
years in the City of Vineland Public
What do you perceive as the top two
issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
Please tell the readers of The Grapevine
how you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues.
I believe one of our top issues in this
district is the family unit. I believe we
have the Administrators in place i. e.
Superintendent, Assistant
Superintendents, Principals and Vice
Principals that understand our issues and
work extremely hard to provide an
atmosphere that cultivates activities that
bring families together. We need to
remain with the hometown school
mentality and support the family unit as
much as possible.
Our second issue is the obvious.....our
budget. As I have stated, I am not a proponent of raising taxes. It appears it is
going to be inevitable. I do not want to
sacrifice any more services for our students or jobs for our city and surrounding
county. The reason I am not for raising
taxes is that the State (which is our tax
dollars also) may finally realize we are in
need of more funding. At this time, I am
in favor of a 4% tax increase, which will
give the district approximately $800.000
more revenue in the next budget year.
This action may also have an effect on
what the State gives us in funding in the
future. We raised taxes for the first time
in 12 years this year and it was only a 2%
increase, which accounted for about $30
yearly for the homeowner. The State is
under the impression that we (the district) are OK. We are not!I do not want
to end up like other districts where firing
personnel and eliminating programs were
the only option. I want to save jobs. I
want to create jobs. I want our kids developed, not enveloped.

Do you have any family members
employed by the district? Do you have any
other conflicts of interest that would preclude you from voting on matters pertaining
to the BOE or school district?
Why are you running for a seat on the
School Board?
My desire to serve the people of his
great community and to enable the students in our schools to reach their fullest
potential is merely a small way of paying
back all that has been afforded to me
through all of my years in the school system. From a very young age, I chose to
devote my life to service; in my church, as a
former volunteer for the New Jersey
Veterans Memorial Home here in Vineland,
and as a member of Congressman Frank
LoBiondos Youth Advisory Council.
Vineland is a great town, but it is often
given a bad name. Children in our schools
are taught that when they graduate, they
must go away to college and not return
because there is nothing to offer. When
people leave the city, jobs leave the city, and
when jobs leave the city, the city ultimately
loses its vision. The 2010 Census showed
that less than 14% of Vineland residents
possess a Bachelors degree. Successful
schools systems and job availability are, in
my opinion, the two biggest selling points
to bring both high school graduates and
people from other areas into Vineland.
Unemployment rates are currently at 9.2%
and nothing will get better until we REVITALIZE VINELANDS EDUCATION and
convince high school graduates to move
back here and raise their families. As a
recent graduate of Vineland High School, I
am aware of the ample amount of opportunities that our community and school district have to offer. If elected, I would like to
give every student in the district access to
these avenues of achievement.

What do you perceive as the top two

issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
Please tell the readers of The Grapevine how
you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues.
The top two issues I see affecting
Vineland Public Schools would be safety
and the budget. As far as safety is concerned, our students and staff need to feel
and be secure at all times. As a recent high
school graduate, I have experienced fire,
shelter in place, active shooter, and lockdown drills and know the importance of
each of them. Too often in the news are we
informed of school shootings in the elementary, middle, and high schools and it
hits very close to home. There have been
142 school shootings in the United States
since 2013 with 45 of them occurring this
year alone. We as a school board need to
take all steps necessary to ensure something like this does not occur in our
schools. I believe that a way to prevent situations like this from happening would be
to look for further security measures to
equip our schools with, such as metal
detectors, stricter security policies, and to
maintain and or increase Vineland Police
presence within all levels of the schools.
Not only do students need to feel safe in
school, but they also need to feel safe going
to and from school. Vineland is a very large
school district and unfortunately not every
student can be provided bussing if they live
within the permitted radius of the school.
With that being said, there are extremely
busy roads that these students as young as
five years old have to walk down that are
not adequately equipped with sidewalks.
Within the last few months, major
improvements have been made, most
notably near Wallace Middle School, where
sidewalks have been installed along North
Mill and West Oak Roads. In order to cater
to all of our districts walkers and bike riders, I would like to reach out to the city,
county, and state officials to express our
districts need for proper funding to pave
these sidewalks.
The second issue affecting the district is
the budget. This fiscal year, the board will
be faced with a multi-million dollar deficit.
Cuts will unfortunately have to be made,
but my hope is that these cuts will be well
thought out and have their options
weighed. The budget will have to be looked
at scrupulously and spending will have to
be minimal. I look forward to being on the
school board this November and working
with the central administration and fellow
board members to do what is ultimately
best for the students, staff, and stakeholders in this community.

Do you have any family members
employed by the district? Do you have any
other conflicts of interest that would preclude you from voting on matters pertaining to the BOE or school district?
Why are you running for a seat on the
School Board?
I believe that it is time for change.
Being a recent graduate of Vineland High
School and being in the school system for
13 years, I see the issues and problems
first hand. I also see the great things that
our school district has to offer. I offer

new perspective, a new vision and a new

direction to add to the school board. I am
running because I believe that I will serve
the community, parents and most importantly the students well.
What do you perceive as the top two
issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
Please tell the readers of The Grapevine
how you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues.
1. Budget: The budget is $200 million
but we are a large school district with a
lot of students and a lot of employees.
During budgeting season, the community
needs to be involved in decisions. The
community should be there to gain
knowledge about how the district spends
the money and also how we save. If anyone has a suggestion, I urge them to come
out to the board meetings. When you
bring forth an issue, try to provide a
solution. If anything needs to be
changed, community involvement is
most important.
2. Education vs. Policies: I believe that
right now, there is too much emphasis
being placed on certain policies like the
school uniform. We have to think about
what's most important and that's making
sure our students are ready for real life.
Too many times Ive watched teachers
spend time writing students up rather
than teaching. Education is whats most
important and that should be our main

Why are you running for a seat on the

Since 1995, my job as coordinator and

I have attended all but a handful of the

During these two decades of service to

many local government agencies, community, and public service organizations, and
numerous social groups.

way to start the next stage of my life than
by volunteering to serve the interests of
the students, staff, administration, and the
taxpayers of Vineland as a board member.

issues affecting Vinelands public schools?
How would you, as a school board member,

would address each of these issues?

Please tell the readers of The Grapevine
how you, as a school board member, would
address each of these issues.
The district faces a serious budget
deficit in 2016-2017.
As a board member, I would consider
raising taxes as a last resort, not a first
step, in solving a budget problem.
In addition to continuing cost-savings
programs, such as the energy abatement
initiative, I would want every department
to scrutinize every line item to reduce
I would also endorse:
* Advertising appropriate for public
viewing on buses;
* Continued and expanded sponsorships
* Consider business partnerships with
high profile companies to provide funding
for programs such as science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM);
* Shared services with other government entities;
* Put greater emphasis on the pursuit
of grant funding; and
* Explore how a foundation could provide financial support for the school district.
To compete in the global economy,
our children need strong 21st century
skills in digital literacy, communication,
collaboration, critical and creative thinking while providing access to the most
advanced technology. We must continue
to develop curriculum that meets the
needs of all students. In addition to core
subjects, there needs to be emphasis on
courses and programs for students who
are gifted in the arts, and the acquisition
of real-world training for those with
strong technical and trade skills.
Each child should also have a support
network that begins with family involvement, the attention and caring of our dedicated teachers, and the services offered
by our guidance counselors, health care
professionals and social workers.


In addition to the seven candidates for Vineland Board of
Education profiled this week, voters
will select two County Freeholders,
and two New Jersey Assemblymen.
Freeholder candidates will be profiled in next weeks issue. Mayra

Banner Unveiling at Johnstone Elementary School

Elementary School and
Rowan University
renewed their partnership last Tuesday during the unveiling of a
new banner promoting
Johnstones status as a
Development School.
The ceremony began with a reflection on the history of the Rowan/Johnstone
relationship by Dr. Lois Karwowski, former principal of Johnstone. She was followed by Dr. Monika Shealey, Dean of the Rowan University College of Education,
who outlined their goals and hopes for the program.
The pinnacle of the ceremony was the unveiling of a brand new banner by
students, teachers and honored guests.
Johnstone has been a part of Rowans school-university partnership program
since 2000. According to the Rowan University website, Professional
Development Schools (PDS) are innovative institutions formed through partnerships between colleges of schools of education and P-12 schools. Their mission
is professional preparation of teacher candidates, faculty development, inquiry
directed at the improvement of practice, and enhanced student learning. These
schools are more than sites for field placements for teacher candidates. A PDS
is an environment in which university students, faculty liaisons, classroom teachers, and students in the schools can engage in long-term, on-going researchbased initiatives that benefit all members in the learning community.

Henry Garton, a seventh grade student

at Rossi Middle School, is the first recipient of this year's "Recognition Referral
Program," said Tammy Monahan, principal.
"Henry was late to class one day and
when asked why, he answered that he was
helping a new student, Juan Correa
Santiago," said Mrs. Monahan. "As it
turned out, Henry did go out of his way to
help this new student who he didnt even
know without being asked to do so. Henrys teacher, Mrs.
(Marilyn) Beres noticed that Henry put the needs of another student over his
own and wrote him a recognition referral."
In part, the letter said, "your act of kindness is really appreciated and showed
you are a good person. Someone once said a persons true character shows
when that person chooses to be helpful to others in need. You showed you are a
good person."
"I felt bad (for the student)," said Henry. "I could see that he (Juan) felt out of
place and alone. I wanted to include him and help him feel more comfortable."
"Rossi School has implemented many programs to promote a positive school
climate," said Mrs. Monahan. "We wish to identify students who engage in positive behaviors when they are clearly not expecting any reward or recognition. We
also wish to change the tone of what it means to be calledto the office."
This typically takes on a negative meaning, said Mrs. Monahan.
"But when students return to class with a letter and a tote with goodies it
helps to erase the image that students only go to the office when they are in
trouble," she said. "We want students to come to us if they have a concern, or
when they have done something nice, not only for negative reasons. It is our
hope that through these positive initiatives, students will want to maintain excellent behavior and be kind and respectful to others."
Other students who received a recognition referral in September were
Dayanara Perez, Dylan Amarando, Seth Huerta and Latreon Jackson. The students who receive Recognition Referrals are mentioned in our monthly Rossi
newsletter, which are posted on the school's website."

not engage in enough physical activity. As a
result, a staggering 40 percent of local children ages 6 to 11 are overweight or obese

Conserve Energy This

Winter by Choosing the
Right Windows
Winter is upon us, but the window hasnt closed for homeowners to keep their
heating bills from going through the roof.
While exploring tactics for cutting
energy costs, there might be no more critical consideration than windows. A home
with inefficient windows is almost like a
home with a hole in the walland
installing energy-efficient windows can
shave up to 15 percent off heating and
cooling bills, according to estimates based
on data set forth in the U.S. Department of
Energys Energy Star Savings Estimates
Numerous factors determine a windows energy efficiency. Windows with a
lower U-Factor, for example, are preferable in colder regions because they allow
less heat to escape.
Each homeowners needs are unique,
and its important to choose windows that
make the most sense for your home and
environment, said Christine Marvin of
Marvin Windows and Doors, a manufacturer of premium, made-to-order windows

and doors. To find out which product and

glass solution might be right for you, we
always suggest you visit your local dealer.
Here are some other tips to find the
best windows for your home:
Consider your conservation goals.
One homeowner may simply want greater
energy efficiency. Another may be drawn
to passive or net zero building practiceswhose requirements are designed to
maintain comfortable temperatures with
incredibly minimal heating and cooling
At Marvin, our robust product offerings help homeowners achieve whatever
type of solution they seek, said Marvin,
who also pointed out that Marvin is the
only major American window manufacturer to offer Passive House Institute US
(PHIUS) certified options in the U.S.
Dont sacrifice beauty for efficiency. Windows should be beautiful, functional, durable and energy efficient, says
Marvin, whose company offers more than
150,000 energy-efficient options, including many standard product solutions that
meet new Energy Star criteria that take
effect in 2015 and 2016. Rest assured
theres a solution that fits both your
design and efficiency needs.

Cut Heating Costs by

Winterizing Your Home
Old Man Winter makes his mighty
push, and 79 percent of Americans expect
to pay the same or more to heat their
homes as compared to last winter, according to a recent survey by the Vent-Free Gas
Products Alliance, a section of the AirConditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration
Institute (AHRI).

Heating With Wood is

Ever-Popular Option
Have you turned your heat on yet?
We have!
Make sure your chimney is clean
and free of creosote. Caked-on creosote can catch fire and lead to a
major house fire.
ALWAYS burn DRY wood. Your
wood should always be covered. Wet
wood will be difficult to light a fire and
will cause smoke to enter your house.
Do you have a chimney cap? If
not, you will be getting rain and snow
down your chimney, which will cause
damage to your chimney.
Is your house drafty with cold air
from your fireplace? Ask us about a
top seal damper that will stop that
draft! Awesome product!
Check the gasket (rope like material) around the door, glass and any
other place it may appear on your
wood stove. If it is fraying, broken, or
loose, it needs to be repaired. This is
an easy fix. We sell the product to do
it yourself or we can do it for you. If
your glass is dirt, theres a product to
clean it or we will clean it when we
replace the gasket.
Keep flammable objects away

from the stove and chimney (curtains, furniture etc)

Kettles/steamers with water add
moisture to the air. Using a trivet
under your kettle/steamer allows air
to circulate around the container,
which helps eliminate any rust spots
on the stove. **If you purchase a trivet always check to see if it has rubber
feet covers. Before using remove the
rubber covers or they will melt and
create a real mess!
Safety is most important. A good
pair of fireplace gloves that come up
to the elbow will keep your hands and
arms from getting burned when
adding wood to a hot fire. There are
safety gates and screens available to
surround your wood stove/fireplace to
help keep children from getting
burned. Small children should never
be left unsupervised around a burning
appliance. We also offer fire-resistant
rugs to place in front of your fireplace
or woodstove for additional safety
from any sparks that may fly when
opening the doors. Fireplace doors are
also available for safety and decor
with a lot of different options.
If you have questions, stop in and
see us and we will be happy to help

Like it or not, the winter season is just around the corner. Cold temperatures
often drop below freezing. How well is your home protected from the cold?
One area where heat can escape your home during the winter is your entry
door. You can add an extra layer of protection to your front door by installing a
storm door. A storm door can protect your home from the elements. It can seal
the opening from winter drafts. A good-fitting storm door creates a pocket of air
between it and the entry door, adding an extra layer of insulated air.
Some storm doors come with the option of replacing the glass panel with a
screen during the warmer months. Some come with the convenience of selfstoring glass and screen which allows you to change back and forth from screen
to glass without removing them. This allows you the opportunity to keep your
entry door open longer into the fall season when temperatures are rising and
falling greatly on a daily basis. Many storm doors include locking mortised
hardware and/or security screens or security bars, which adds an extra level of
security and can be a deterrent to thieves.
Installing a storm door will improve the energy efficiency of your home. It will
reduce heat loss in the winter while protecting your entry door from wear and
tear from the elements. Youll reap the additional benefit of your heating system
running less frequently, prolonging its life and reducing your heating bills.
Submitted by Plowmans Windows & Doors, Inc.

Add window treatments. Certain

window treatments also can help maintain
comfortable temperatures in a home. For
example, homeowners can program
Marvins automated exterior shading system to provide the optimal amount of
light, 24 hours a day.
Consult an expert. Marvin suggests
homeowners speak with a professional,
when selecting windows, to explore and
identify solutions for their home and climate.


Storm Door Basics

You can curl up with a book and a good view of the wintry landscape if you choose
windows that are energy-efficient.


For a home with an existing wood-burning fireplace, converting it to a vent-free

gas log set or insert turns a messy, inefficient system into a clean, hassle-free, highly economical heat source.
Environmentally friendly vent-free appliances are heated with natural gas or
propane, among the cleanest of all fossil
fuels according to the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency. Both gases are domestically abundant and are secure sources of
Clean-burning fuel and super efficient
operationthat makes vent-free a truly
green heat source, said Walker.

To save money on those heating bills,

though, homeowners can take steps now to
stay warmer and more comfortable this
winter. For example, caulking and extra
insulation are relatively inexpensive and
easy projects that will pay dividends all
Another way to cut home heating bills
20 to 35 percent is by installing a vent-free
gas fireplace or heater in the room you use
most. According to Sue Walker, chairwoman of the AHRIs Vent-Free Gas
Products Alliance Section, this zone heating strategy allows you to turn down the
central furnace and take advantage of the
inherent efficiency of supplemental vent-

Vent-free gas products have been
around for more than 30 years, according
to Walker. With more than 20 million
units installed in homes, they are time tested for savings and safety.
Because a vent-free gas heating system
does not require tearing out walls to run
vent pipe, professional installation is surprisingly inexpensive, fast and costeffective.

Renting? Its Still Possible

to Have an EnergyEfficient Home
While the economy is starting to show
signs of improvement, unemployment
rates still remain high, which has led to
higher rental rates. There are 38 million
renters in the market looking for ways to
be fiscally responsible.
While fancy amenities like granite
countertops and walk-in closets were popular before, the new budget-savvy renter
is looking for a well-built and energy-efficient home. In fact, according to, added features that

save renters money, like paid utilities and

washers and dryers in units, topped the
list of popular amenities from February to
August 2009.
Renters who suspect their laundry pair
and kitchen appliances havent been
replaced in years should find the model
and serial numbers on each unit and contact the manufacturers customer service
line to determine the year they were
made. ENERGY STAR estimates that
upgrading appliances can result in a savings of $75 annually on utility bills.
If it has been some time since the
appliances have been replaced, renters
should consider asking for a new laundry
pair, since newer models offer considerable water savingsand landlords typically pay the water bill. An ENERGY STAR
qualified washer could save 17 more gallons of water each load, which is equivalent to a daily shower. In addition to conserving water, high-efficiency washers,
such as the Maytag Performance Series,
use up to 77 percent less energy compared
to pre-2004 conventional top-loaders. It
also features the exclusive Fresh Hold
option with Dynamic Venting Technology
that combines intermittent tumbling
action with air circulation from a fan in
the rear of the washer to reduce moisture
in the load, allowing consumers to delay
drying for up to ten hours. This new technology actually begins drying clothes
while they are in the washer, thus increas-

ing the life of the dryer and saving energy

by decreasing drying time.
Additionally, in order to ensure their
unit is as efficient as possible, renters
should request an annual inspection of
their windows, heating and cooling equipment and insulation, since heating and
cooling costs account for more than half
of utility costs. This annual review should
include a thorough inspection around the
attic and windows to see if a draft is coming through, as well as a visit to each room
in the unit to see if there is a constant
Fluctuating temperatures or incoming
air could indicate duct problems, inadequate sealing and/or installation around
the windows. Older windows that havent
been upgraded more than likely were not
installed with todays standard of installation. And poorly performing ducts can
leak air and reduce a homes efficiency by
as much as 20 percent by causing the system to work harder.
In addition to the annual checks, the
HVAC air filter should be replaced
monthly as dirt and neglect could cause
the HVAC system to break down. By asking for these efficiency inspections,
upgrades and fixes, renters can capitalize
on their advantage in the market now,
lower their costs and avoid moving during
these uncertain times.

Dead Grass: Opportunity

for Improving Lawns
The long, hot summer has taken its toll
on many plants, including lawns. Many
areas of desirable turfgrass lawns have
died, and lawns infested with crabgrass
and other annual weeds are dying in
autumn. Dead lawns mean a loss in
ground cover and greater risk of storm
water runoff. Ground cover is needed to
prevent rains from washing bare soil into
streams, lakes, rivers, and bays. Eroding
soil contains sediment and nutrients
(nitrogen and phosphorus), which are a
severe risk for water pollution. Therefore,

lawns with 60 percent or more loss of

ground cover need to be repaired to prevent soil erosion and protect water quality.
What to do? Dead lawns need to have
the soil re-covered. Now is the best time
to reseed a lawn. The cooler air, warm
soils, and more frequent rain of August
and September present ideal conditions to
seed lawns and ensure establishment.
Seed blends and mixtures containing a
grass called perennial ryegrass will provide the quickest and easiest repair of
lawns. It is also wise to include other
grasses in the seed mixture. Interested in
developing a lawn with lower maintenance requirements? Look on the seed
label for grasses called tall fescue, hard
fescue, Chewings fescue, or creeping red
fescue. If you use seed mixes containing
them, these grasses become established in
the lawn over time. These grasses can survive with less water and fertilizer. Tall fescue is a very good choice if you can seed
before September 15 while perennial ryegrass, fine fescues, Kentucky bluegrass can
continue to be used later in the fall when
the soil cools.
Test the soil to determine what nutrients, if any, are needed. Amending the soil
during lawn renovation provides the
opportunity to treat the whole root zone,
rather than just the soil surface. Consult
your county extension office for information on soil testing or search for soil testing labs on the internet.
Aerating and dethatching the lawn
before seeding is very beneficial. Seed
falling into the openings created by aeration and dethatching is more likely to
establish because the seed and soil contact
is improved. You can also spread a light

Invigorate Your Domain

With a New Exterior

{ H-6 } Home Improvement Guide | OCTOBER 14, 2015

If youre thinking of making improvements to your home, this may be the perfect time to give the exterior of your home
a makeover. The added value and the general warm feeling of coming home to a
beautiful house everyday are not usually
on the forefront of most peoples minds.
However, the time of year is upon us to
start thinking about our home repairs and
to begin updating our homes facade. But

where do we start?
Ultimately, there are plenty of options
if youd like to change the appearance of
your home.
Nothing breathes new life into a house
like a new roof. While not an inexpensive
upgrade, putting a new roof on a house
can make a big difference as it makes up
50 percent of the exterior of a home.
Asphalt shingles are a good choice
because theyre durable and can enhance
the style and curb appeal of a home.
Trim is another option. This can bring
out many of the details near windows or
deck systems. Good trim products are typically made from cellular PVC with the
look and feel of lumber. Most trim comes
in a natural-white color thats easy to
paint and ready to install.
If privacy or a place to relax outdoors
with your family is something youre looking for, try accenting your outdoor living
space with maintenance-free fencing,
decking and railings. These vinyl products
are weatherproof and require no painting,
staining or sanding and will allow you to

A brick paver driveway can set your house apart from your neighbors, and you can continue the theme with backyard patios and brick walls. There are many suppliers of
pavers in our area.

Reduce Risk of Roof

Collapse from Snow, Ice

A new exterior may take some planning,

and the winter months are a good time to
get started.

Staging Your Home for a

Quicker Sale
Foreclosures and high maintenance
costs mean that new homes go up for sale
faster than you can say down market.
And what is great for buyersmore homes
to choose frommeans that sellers need
to distinguish their properties from the
rest of the crowd.
Home staging, or temporarily redesigning a home to appeal to buyers, can give
homeowners an edge in an overcrowded
market. Staged homes look bigger, newer
and warmer. They invite buyers to see
themselves living in the home.
Staging projects include inexpensive
tasks, from rearranging furniture, to renting contemporary living room sets. Here
are some tips for staging homes:
Declutter. When buyers see overcrowded book shelves and wrinkled towels, they focus more on the dingy details
than the architecture. But staging means
more than a through cleaningsellers
should also remove personal items, like
family photographs. Buyers should picture
their families living in the home, not
Make things look new. A little paint
can go a long way. Light colors make
rooms look larger and brighter, so use
them to make your home appear spacious.
Wooden floors and cabinetry make big
impressions, so make sure that they shine.
Hard water stains on glass shower
doors and windows look unattractive, so
remove them with a specialized product.
Some hard water stains will often yield to
scrubbing with white vinegar and a nonscratch pad. If you find that vinegar is
ineffective, a paint scraper or razor blade
can be used to remove the bonded stains
before resorting to harsher chemicals.
Add small details. In the kitchen,
bowls filled with fresh fruit create an
attractive, colorful eyepiece. Place vases
filled with fresh flowers in the bedrooms
and dining room. Put candles in the bath-

Siding is an area where options are
great. Polymer shakes give a home a rich,

Landscaping is another way to update
the look of your home. Landscapes are
moving away from structured shapes, so if
you have a lot of shaped trees that look
like triangles or spheres, let them grow
out, and prune them more naturally.

Major winter storms can produce

heavy, wet snow and drifting from
high winds, creating the perfect scenario for roof collapse. Here are
some tips from J. Wilhelm Roofing
The following types of construction and building features that are
more susceptible to collapse are:
Structures with large spans such
as commercial buildings, auditoriums, gymnasiums and warehouses.
Unheated or intermittently heated structures
Slightly sloped or flat roofs
Roofs that tend to collect drifting snow
Roofs without drainage, poor
drainage or poorly maintained
drainage systems
Here are some additional things
to look for to determine if your roof
is at increased risk for collapse:
Roof leaked during the winter or
started to leak last spring
Ripples or bends in metal supports, or cracks in wooden members
Popping noises have been
heard (this may indicate fasteners
have broken)
Pooling of water on the roof top
Deformations in the roof
Don't put your people or property
at risk. Let our trained and skilled
experts remove the snow from your
roof. We have the OSHA-approved
fall protection equipment to properly
and safely remove the snow. We also
understand your roofing system and
know how to protect it during the
removal process. We'll make sure
you get your roof cleared without
voiding your warranty.

Here are some factors to consider

when choosing cabinet materials
appearance, durability, safety, and
ease of use. You may also want to
choose products that are environmentally friendly, made from natural
materials, and made domestically.
We can make your cabinet space
more functional with options like
pull-out shelves, storage racks, sink
front tip-outs, a Lazy Susan and
even new drawer boxes and slides.
Your kitchen wont just look new; it
will feel new, too!
Some chemical cleaners can wear
away at the finish on your granite,
making it less effective. A very mild
soap and water mixture is all you
need to clean it, or, to prevent
buildup, use a water and vinegar mix.
If you have a large space to work
with and really spend a lot of time in
the kitchen, then choosing a Ushape layout for your kitchen remodel is going to be your best bet. The
U-shape provides a massive expanse
of counter and storage space, as well
as a great deal of flexibility.
A recent kitchen design trend is
open-air top cabinets without cupboard doors. Open-air kitchen cabinets can display your beautiful dishes in the best light, and create the
impression of more space, which is
an ideal touch in smaller kitchens
While kitchen storage has always
been important, for most of history,
there wasn't any set furniture that
was used. People would use jars,
shelves, tables, boxes, and various
other storage furniture. Built-in
kitchen cabinets didn't start showing
up until the 20th century.
Inset cabinet doors sit within the
rails and styles of the cabinet frame,
and lay flush with the cabinet's front
edges. Inset doors look elegant, but
require constant maintenance in
areas where humidity causes the
wood to swell and contract.
Proper installation of glass tiles is
vital to ensure they will look just as
you envisioned and hold up under
use conditions. While it's possible to
install glass tile as a DIY project,
there are a lot of variables to consider and the job needs to be done precisely. If you're not completely comfortable, consider hiring a professional.
Did you know that granite countertops can be finished in many different ways? They can either be polished, homed, or flamed to create a
different appearance.

products) can contribute to membrane degradation.
Catch pans should be installed in areas where these

need to choose the right treatment to

ensure maximum fuel quality. In general,
ethanol-blended gasoline should be used
within 30-45 days. However, an enzyme
stabilizer will stabilize gasoline for up to
two years. These unique enzyme formulas
also help improve fuel combustibility to
ensure easy starts, full power, improved
fuel economy and decreased emissions.
Formulation: Some fuel stabilizers
contain many of the same anti-corrosion
and antioxidant additive packs that are
already present in pump-grade gas.
Adding more of these add-pack compounds can degrade fuel quality, causing
engines to run rough and smoky when
they are started after winter storage. An
enzyme stabilizer is designed to work in
conjunction with pump-grade gas additives to keep fuel fresh for maximum performance in the spring. Fresh fuel and
easy engine starts are better for fuel economy, which means lower emissions and
less environmental impact. And its not
just for winter; an enzyme fuel treatment
can maximize fuel quality all year long.

Its the time of year that pests such as mice and bats move inside to warmer quarters.
Rats are able to fit through an opening the size of a quarter, and once inside, are capable of spreading diseases.

hole up for the winter. Rats, bats and spiders are the stuff nightmares are made of,
and for good reason; these creepy critters
are capable of spreading disease, and
incurring serious harm to people, and
even causing property damage.
The National Pest Management
Association (NPMA) offers the following
guide on three common, creepy fall
invaders, along with a few tips for preventing your home from turning into a
true haunted house!
Rats: These primarily nocturnal pests
are known to gnaw through almost anything to obtain food or water, including
plastic or lead pipes. Rats are able to fit

through an opening the size of a quarter,

and once inside they are capable of
spreading diseases such as plague, jaundice, rat-bite fever, trichinosis and salmonellosis.
Tip: Before bringing decorations out
of storage and into the home, inspect all
boxes for signs of infestation such as
gnaw marks and rodent droppings. When
its time to put away decorations, store
them in a plastic, sealed box to keep
rodents out.
Bats: Bats are frequently associated
with vampires and haunted houses, causing an unfounded fear in many people.
However, it is important to note that bats

are common carriers of rabies, a disease

that can be fatal in humans, and their
droppings can lead to histoplasmosis, a
lung disease.
Tip: Screen attic vents and openings to
chimneys, and install door sweeps this fall
to keep bats out of the home. If an active
bat infestation is suspected, it is important
to contact a licensed pest control professional because bats are protected by law
in most states.
Spiders: While most spiders that
invade homes are simply an annoyance,
albeit a creepy one, the brown recluse and
black widow spiders will bite when threatened and can cause painfulpossibly

Prompt medical attention is required if
youve come into contact with one of these
venomous spiders.
Tip: Avoid coming
in to contact with spiders by keeping garages, attics and basements clean and clutter-free. Be sure to
wear heavy gloves when moving items
that have been in storage, such as
Halloween decorations.
