(Photo by Kali Chan)While most football fans are preparing to pig out at Super Bowl Sunday parties across Long Island, one group of young men is going on a hunger strike in the name of charity.Nearly 50 Adelphi University fraternity brothers from Kappa Sigma started fasting for 24 hours starting Saturday evening to raise money, awareness and food donations to support Island Harvest, a leading local hunger relief nonprofit.“It’s just crazy how many Long Islanders go to bed hungry each night,” Alex Lucks, the chapter president who’s an Adelphi pre-med senior majoring in psychology, said during the pre-kickoff party for “Super Hungerfest.”Lucks said the group raised more than $3,500 last year, collected about 900 pounds of food and hopes to continue growing prior success. He noted that Americans spend more than $50 billion annually on snack foods to watch the Super Bowl.Jim Broderick, a retired TV advertising executive who volunteers for Island Harvest, said the group was already dealing with increased demand caused by the slow economy when Sandy added more seeking out their network of 570 soup kitchens and food pantries.“It’s kind of an invisible problem,” he said of unemployed parents forced to cut corners. “Often what they cut back on is nutritious food for their families.”Broderick said the agency served about 65,000 people weekly on LI before the storm and provided 8 million pounds of food last year—two million after Sandy. He added that last than 300,000 Long Islanders turned to the group for emergency food supplies last year, which was their 20th anniversary.Kate Cartagena, an Adelphi English major, was among the nearly 100 students who gathered at the festively decorated Alumni Hall in Garden City Park to show support for her charitable classmates as various football-themed games were played around her.“I think it’s really good that the Adelphi community as a whole can come together for a good cause,” she said.Kappa Sigma breaks their fast at the 6 p.m., a half hour before kickoff of the Super Bowl XLVII match-up between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans.
If you haven’t completely finished your Christmas shopping yet, there’s a good chance it’s because you can’t figure out what to get for dear ol dad. Dads aren’t really that hard to shop for, because they’re always satisfied with new socks or ties. But sometimes you want to mix it up. If you’re stumped on what to get your Dad (or your husband, uncle, or brother for that matter), here are four options under 50 bucks from Amazon that will arrive in plenty of time for you to wrap them and get them under the tree.Carhartt Men’s Rain Defender Paxton Heavyweight Hooded Sweatshirt: Everybody loves a hoodie. Especially a thick, heavyweight one for the winter time. This one is awesome because not only does it look extremely comfortable, but it has Carhartt’s Rain Defender durable water-repellent finish that makes it “rain, mist and snow resistant.” Now Dad won’t have to throw on a raincoat before he goes out to get the mail during January snowstorms. $49.99Travando RFID Blocking Wallet: I bought my dad a new wallet in 2004 and I’m pretty sure he’s still using his old one. If a dad in your life is in need of an upgrade, look no further than this slim money clip wallet. It’s got a 4.5 star rating with almost 6k reviews. This will prevent him from being able to keep every receipt he receives during the calendar year in his wallet. And that will keep him from sitting on that monster he has now, which can’t be good for his back. Also, it blocks radio frequency identification signals which helps protect certain credit, debit and ID cards. $29.95Nike Men’s 3 Pack Golf Web Belt: You know what a lot of dads love? Golf. And if they love golf, they probably play golf. And if they play golf they probably own 1200 golf shirts. And it stands to reason that if they have that many shirts, that probably have tons of golf shorts and pants. And you know a dad has to be fashionable. Here’s a sweet 3 pack of Nike golf belts for the golf-loving dad in your family. $23.97Dad Joke Loading | T-Shirt: There are more dads who think they are funny than dads who are actually funny, but you know what, that’s why we love those guys. If you’ve got a fun-loving, corny-joke telling dad in your family, he’s probably going to think this shirt is hysterical. Anytime he wears it, you’ll always be prepared for that status bar to finish loading. $14.95 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

TOUGH DEFENSE–St. John’s D’Angelo Harrison, left, fights for a loose ball with Pittsburgh’s Durand Johnson in the first half at Madison Square Garden in New York, Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013. (AP Photo/Henny Ray Abrams)by Jim O’ConnellAP Basketball WriterNEW YORK (AP) — The word was Pittsburgh, a program known for tough practices over the years, had a week of tough practices following consecutive losses to ranked teams.The 20th-ranked Panthers became the latest Pitt team to benefit from those tough practices, beating St. John’s 63-47 on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.“We focus on losses a little more than wins, those are the ones people seem to remember,” Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. “We responded and we came out and we beat a really good team by 16 on their court. I think that says a lot of good things about our guys.”Tray Woodall, one of two seniors on the roster, and redshirt junior Lamar Patterson have been through these rough practices before. When they were asked about the latest stretch of tough ways to kill days before the next game, both gave that small, knowing smile before talking.“We had a lot of hard practices,” Patterson said. “Coach got after us and we should expect us with the way we played the last two games. Rebounding was the main focus but those practices got us ready for today.”The losses to Marquette and Notre Dame, the latter of which has already been entered as a training tape for what not to do on offense, were no longer the topic of conversation. The latest win was.Woodall scored a season-high 25 points, including two huge 3-pointers in the second half, and Patterson had 11 points for the Panthers (21-7, 9-6 Big East), who have won five of their past seven road games.Woodall was 8 of 14 from the field, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range, and didn’t have a turnover despite handling the ball most of the time.“He was terrific in every way,” Dixon said. “I think every shot he took was a great shot. He handled the ball well and he played good defense.”The game was basically decided by the teams’ leading scorers: Woodall, who came in averaging 10.9 points per game, and D’Angelo Harrison of the Red Storm, the Big East’s No. 3 scorer with an 18.3 average, who finished with six points on 1-of-12 shooting.Harrison didn’t sound concerned about the shooting.“It was really nothing to worry about,” Harrison said. “You’re always the next shot from being hot. It was one of those nights.“If we had converted some of the shots we usually make it would have been a different ballgame. You credit Pittsburgh and their team. They capitalized on our misses and we turned the ball over. Just missing shots and careless turnovers. We take care of that and we’ll be fine.”JaKarr Sampson had 14 points and Phil Greene added 11 for the Red Storm (16-11, 8-7), who have lost three of four overall and eight of the past nine games against Pittsburgh.The Red Storm had three turnovers in the first half. They matched that figure in the opening 4:10 of the second half and finished with nine — in the second half. The Panthers finished with a 17-4 advantage in points off turnovers.“I thought we took care of the ball well in the first half and that allowed us to be competitive,” St. John’s coach Steve Lavin said. “We held our own on the boards in both halves, but the combination of the nine turnovers and the 17 points off those turnovers led to a 16-point game.”The teams came in tied for seventh in the 15-team league. The top eight finishers get a bye to the second round, a day of rest in a tournament that can stretch to five days for a team that doesn’t get that opening bye.Sir’Dominic Pointer made two free throws 2 1-2 minutes into the second half to give the Red Storm a 33-32 lead, just their second of the game.Woodall, a native of Brooklyn who has spent his senior season climbing Pitt’s career statistics lists, hit a 3-pointer with 17:08 to play to give the Panthers the lead for good. He scored the first eight points of a 10-2 run that gave Pitt a 42-35 lead with 15:13 left.The Red Storm, despite Harrison’s shooting woes, were still in it when Chris Obekpa made two free throws to make it 42-39 with 12:08 to play.The Panthers went on a 13-2 run from there and the basket that silenced the crowd at Madison Square Garden was a long 3 by Woodall that made it 53-41 with 6:29 to go.St. John’s point guard Jamal Branch returned after missing four games with a sprained MCL in his left knee. He entered the game with 8 minutes left in the first half, playing for 2 minutes. He came into the game again with 9 minutes to play and saw just a minute. Branch, who missed two shots and had one turnover, came in averaging 8.3 points and 2.5 assists.
The Lusty Lobster and the Rumson Market Place are collaborating so customers don’t have to go out of their way to pick up their seafood in Highlands while the Oceanic Bridge (above) is closed.RUMSON — Looking for a way to overcome an obstacle for their customers, a business owner on the Rumson side of the Navesink River has established a partnership with one on the Middletown side.Rumson Market Place, 122 East River Road, like a number of area businesses, had been looking at ways to address the challenge posed by the lengthy closing of the Oceanic Bridge.With the Oceanic Bridge closed for repairs until Memorial Day, Rumson Market and the Lusty Lobster in Highlands decided to add an extra level of customer service by allowing Lusty Lobster customers to pick up their orders at Rumson Market.“It’s a nice thing to be working together,” said Lusty Lobster owner Doug Douty.“It’s been working out great so far,” added Jimmy Nelson, butcher for Rumson Market Place.According to the businessmen, the idea originated with Bill Alcaro, a previous owner of the Rumson market. “It was his idea to cross market,” Douty said. “And with the bridge closing it was a perfect idea.”The aging and dilapidated Oceanic Bridge, a drawbridge spanning the Navesink River, connecting the Rumson peninsula and the Locust section of Middletown and the Bayshore area bordering Highway 36, was closed on Oct. 17 for necessary repairs.With its closing, drivers are forced to take extended detours to circumnavigate the river, having to travel through Sea Bright on to Highlands, Atlantic Highlands and on to Middletown; or they have to travel west on River Road, through Red Bank and on to Highway 35.And that has been of concern to area businesses, which say this inconvenience has taken a toll on their bottom line, as customers are just forsaking their usual stops on the other side of the river.“It’s a real hassle and it takes a lot of extra time and people just don’t have it,” Nelson said. “So right now we’re not seeing too many of those people.”A little less than 10 percent of his customers come from the Middletown side of the river, as it is really the closest grocery store in the area, Nelson explained.Douty’s has many customers in the Rumson and Fair Haven area who would normally travel to Highlands to buy seafood for their holiday get-togethers. He believes he may have lost some business because of the bridge situation.Now customers can contact Lusty Lobster and Douty would arrange to have it delivered to Rumson Market Place for pickup, which the two businesses see as a win-win for them and customers.“Of course, it complements us because of our meats and other items,” and bringing those customers into the shop, Nelson said.“I think it’s a nice thing that Jimmy does for this customers and I think it’s a nice thing we do for our customers,” Douty said.“I just think it’s really nice that two businesses can work together and help one another,” Douty added.
By Laura D.C. Kolnoski |FORT MONMOUTH – Retail volatility played a role in a developer withdrawing from a “centerpiece” project of Fort Monmouth’s redevelopment. But the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) is striving to keep the plan in play.At a January 2017 press conference in Oceanport, Parcel B Redevelopment, LLC, owned by Paramount Realty Services, Inc. of Lakewood, unveiled renderings of Freedom Pointe Town Center, an 89-acre, $130 million “mixed-use lifestyle destination” projected for 2019 completion. Residential, office, entertainment, food and 350,000 square feet of retail were envisioned inside the brick Johnson Gates, the former main entrance to the fort, on Route 35 in Eatontown, with fountains and a playground. Renderings depicted storefronts bearing the names LL Bean, Patagonia, Tommy Bahama, Shake Shack, and an iPic dine-in movie theater.“We were unable to come to terms with Paramount so they pulled out,” said Dave Nuse, FMERA’s director of real estate development, at the agency’s Feb. 21 monthly meeting. “FMERA is now in negotiations with the second-ranked bidder.” Renderings and a virtual reality video of the Freedom Pointe were still on the website of MMA Architects a week later.“Paramount had its own problems and withdrew willingly,” said interim FMERA Chairman Robert Lucky. “We are committed to making this a livable town center for Eatontown.” Eatontown Mayor Dennis Connelly thanked the board for “giving it a good shot. It got watered down over time, partly because of the way retail is in this economy. We just want to see the best project for Eatontown.” Eatontown’s Monmouth Mall nearby is also proposed for a redevelopment expansion project with 700 residential units, currently stalled in litigation.The town center use was designated in FMERA’s master redevelopment plan for the 1,128-acre former Army base spanning portions of Eatontown, Oceanport and Tinton Falls. The project promises thousands of construction and permanent jobs. To attract and retain occupancy and foot traffic, amenities like ice skating rinks, holiday and special events, and high-tech shopping options were promised by Paramount Vice President Lee Zekaria, who visited “next generation” malls nationwide, incorporating the most successful features in his firm’s plan. During last year’s press conference, he deemed Freedom Pointe the “crown jewel” of the fort’s redevelopment. Zekaria did not respond to a request for comment by press time.“The town center is a gateway,” said FMERA Executive Director Bruce Steadman. “All the bids we received were based on that. We have the same plan in mind.” Procedures prohibit officials from revealing the identity of bidders during the evaluation/negotiation process.Bowling Center Back on the BlockThe Fort Monmouth Bowling Center along the Avenue of Memories in Eatontown has returned to the real estate market after its redeveloper, a family firm that owns two bowling alleys in North Jersey, notified FMERA it “was not prepared to close on the property within the timeframes specified,” officials said. The company, known as FMBEC (the sole original bidder for the center), withdrew its proposal for the 17,600-square-foot brick structure on 2.3 acres Feb. 14.“Our preference is that it remains a bowling center, but if someone offers a higher and better use that’s justifiable, we must look at it,” Steadman said. The board approved proceeding with an offer to purchase rather than sealed bids because “potential purchasers have expressed interest in acquiring and renovating the property for recreation, entertainment, and related uses,” wrote FMERA staff, adding they are seeking “greater flexibility for selecting the right scenario that would maximize the development potential and economic value of the Bowling Center.” Staff also recommended giving bidders the option of ground leasing the land, making the lessee potentially eligible to obtain a special state concessionaire permit to sell alcohol on the premises.This article first appeared in the Mar. 1-8, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.
–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (April 17, 2015)–Tarabilla Farms’ Home Run Kitten cuts back in distance and heads a deep and competitive field of eight older horses in Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 San Simeon Stakes at Santa Anita. To be contested at 6 ½ furlongs down the track’s Camino Real hillside turf course, the San Simeon will serve as the 2014-15 Winter Meet closing attraction, as Santa Anita will reopen for its Spring Meeting on Friday, April 24.Third, beaten 3 ¼ lengths in the Grade I Frank E. Kilroe Mile (turf) March 7, the David Hofmans-conditioned Home Run Kitten has two wins from three tries down the hill and will be ridden for the second time in-a-row by Gary Stevens.

With $390,529 in the bank, Sweet Swap is 17-7-3-3 overall.Trainer Jim Cassidy’s Holy Lute could prove problematic to anyone with front-running aspirations, as he finished first in a pair of hillside starts two and three starts back, on Feb. 12 and Jan. 17 (disqualified and placed second). Like the favorite, Holy Lute shortens up out of the Kilroe Mile, in which he showed good early speed and tired late to finish seventh, beaten 4 ¾ lengths.Owned by Class Racing Stable, Holy Lute will be ridden by Mike Smith, who won with him two starts back. A 5-year-old horse by Midnight Lute, Holy Lute is 13-3-2-3 overall with earnings of $243,922.With two wins from five lifetime starts down the hill, Doug O’Neill’s Pure Tactics comes off a close third in the one mile turf Thunder Road Stakes April 4 and the 6-year-old horse by Pure Prize merits considerable respect with Kent Desormeaux set ride him back. Owned by Nita Winner, Pure Tactics broke awkwardly and made a good run from off the pace to finish fourth, beaten 2 ¼ lengths by Home Run Kitten five starts back in the 6 ½ furlong turf Grade III Eddie D. Stakes on Sept. 26. Pure Tactics is 22-9-2-3 overall with earnings of $370,496.Idle since Aug. 16 at Arapahoe Park, Colorado-bred Get Happy Mister will try turf for the first time in his Southern California debut Sunday and will seek his sixth consecutive victory with red hot Tyler Baze aloft. Stabled at Los Alamitos for new trainer Mark Tsagalakis, Get Happy Mister worked a leisurely six furlongs over the Santa Anita turf in 1:19.40 on April 16. A winner of four consecutive stakes, the 5-year-old gelding by First Samurai’s most recent tally came in the 1 1/8 miles Arapahoe Park Classic.Owned by Annette Bishop, Get Happy Mister has 10 wins from 13 starts and has amassed earnings of $324,928.The complete field for the Grade III San Simeon Stakes, to be run as the seventh race on a nine-race card Sunday, with jockeys, weights and morning line in post position order: Get Happy Mister, Tyler Baze, 118, 8-1; Home Run Kitten, Gary Stevens, 120, 5-2; Joes Blazing Aaron, Edwin Maldonado, 118, 20-1; Outside Nashville, Drayden Van Dyke, 118, 15-1; Holy Lute, Mike Smith, 118, 3-1; Pure Tactics, Kent Desormeaux, 118, 7-2; U S Citizen, Victor Espinoza, 118, 6-1, and Sweet Swap, Joe Talamo, 118, 3-1.
