first_imgThe Ocean City Farmers & Crafters Market has a wide assortment of produce, flowers, sweets and crafts to choose from. By Maddy VitaleBig, juicy, ripe tomatoes, fresh zucchini and homemade pies are just some of the delights crowds can sink their teeth into when the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce Farmers and Crafters Market opens Wednesday.The market has been going strong for 24 years. It is located on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle at Sixth Street and Asbury Avenue, and is held on Wednesdays through Sept. 4 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market features a total of 80 vendors, including food stands and crafter stands.“We are very happy to start our 24th year of one of the longest running and largest farmers markets in South Jersey,” said Michele Gillian, executive director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We are happy to welcome back our fabulous farmers and crafters, as well as welcoming many new vendors to keep the market exciting. The Farmers and Crafters Market demonstrates a true sense of community.” The market offers customers a bit of everything. There is a wide selection of locally grown produce, from sweet ears of corn to plump blueberries to succulent strawberries.The farmers market has a little bit of everything, including confections.And for those who enjoy confections, there are plenty of cakes, pies and cookies. There are also spicy dips and even pizza.There is also an abundance of fresh flowers and fresh herbs, all from local farms.Oh, and there is jewelry, and a lot of it, to choose from and even stylish clothes.Gillian said she believes the variety and quality of the produce and crafts are the main reasons the market has been around for so long and why so many families return for their goodies year after year.“There is such a varied selection of New Jersey farmers and outstanding juried crafters,” she noted. Dean Monteleone, of Monteleone Farms in Vineland, has been a vendor at the Farmers Market for 19 years.The market, established with the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, is designed to benefit local farmers by exposing them to a new outlet to sell their produce, which will help sustain their farms. To accommodate the vendors, Asbury Avenue is closed to motor vehicle traffic at Sixth Street. The street is turned into a miniature tent city featuring local vendors.The location of the market on the Asbury Avenue commercial corridor also benefits the downtown merchants. Customers finish up at the market and then head to the downtown to continue their shopping spree and stop in the eateries.For more information about the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce Farmers & Crafters Market call 609-399-1412 or visit www.oceancityvacation.com.Chamber officials Rose Savastano and Nancy Neal are co-managers of the Farmers and Crafters Market.

first_img“Just because we’re buying a whole bunch more local food, the schools have the ability to actually prepare it and get all of those new recipes,” said Summerlee. This helps the local economy, as well as our kids, for years to come. “They’re able to eat fresh produce or products that were processed or picked, possibly hours or just a day or two before they eat it. And it’s just full of flavor or nutrients they might not get at home,” said Broome-Tioga BOCES Registered Dietitian Julie Raway. “How far it travels, how it affects the local economy, jobs it takes to produce that food, and just making sure they can have the ability and the knowledge to make healthy choices in the cafeteria,” said Cornell Cooperative Extension Executive Director Beth Roberts. “If we establish healthy choices as young children, then hopefully that will carry on through their entire lifespan,” said Roberts. The Rural Health Network of South Central New York was awarded a $100,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture, or USDA. For a list of all of the federal grant winners, click here. The money also adds training for food service staff. In collaboration with Broome-Tioga BOCES and the Cornell Cooperative Extension, the grant will increase students’ access to locally-grown food. Schools aren’t the only ones reaping the benefits of the grant and the farm-to-school program. “It not only supports students eating local, fresh food, but also supports the community and farmers which are really important to us because they grow the food that we eat,” said Raway. Students will also get the opportunity to learn more about what their eating, with the grant helping to provide education in the classroom. “It will allow us to keep that momentum going of all of the great work that has been done, working with local farms, getting more local farms into the schools, but also add on some new elements,” said Rural Health Network Director of Food and Health Erin Summerlee. Since the format for school this fall is still unknown, the Rural Health Network says it will be able to shift its budget as needed. (WBNG) — The Southern Tier has a history of its farm-to-school programs, and now they are set to expand.last_img read more

first_imgPolls suggest the Liberals and Conservatives are running neck-and-neck, while the NDP and Greens are fighting for third.The NDP are launching their campaign today in London, Ont., one of the regions of the province they feel they’ll be able to hold onto seats. The Greens are in their own comfort zone of British Columbia, where Elizabeth May will launch her campaign in Victoria.At the dissolution of Parliament, the Liberals hold 177 seats, the Conservatives 95, the NDP 39, the Bloc 10 and the Greens 2. There are eight independents — including former Liberal cabinet ministers Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould. The People’s Party of Canada has one seat and former New Democrat Erin Weir sits as a member of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. Five seats are vacant.Under the law, the election must be Oct. 21. Trudeau’s plan calls for him to fly immediately to British Columbia for a rally in the NDP-held riding of Vancouver-Kingsway.Haunting Trudeau on the trail will be the SNC-Lavalin scandal, given fresh life this morning after the Globe and Mail reported the RCMP’s investigation into potential obstruction of justice in the matter has been stymied by the shroud of cabinet confidence.Asked what his government is hiding, Trudeau says his office gave the largest waiver of cabinet confidences in Canadian history but added anything more.Before jumping on his own campaign plane this morning, a fired-up Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said the story showcases his belief that Trudeau has lost the moral authority to govern.“Over the next five weeks I will be explaining the reasons why Justin Trudeau has lost that authority and our alternative plan,” he said in French.Scheer will spend Day 1 of the campaign in Quebec and Ontario. OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau has kicked off his bid for re-election after emerging from Rideau Hall to ask Gov. Gen. Julie Payette to dissolve Parliament.With that starts a 40-day campaign that will see the Liberal leader make the pitch to Canadians that he should be given a second term.He says that the election is a chance for Canadians to vote for the kind of Canada they want to live in.last_img read more

first_imgBut whereas the cerebral Pierre Trudeau hated the back-slapping, baby-kissing, retail side of politics, English says his son seems to feed off the energy he derives from engaging directly with people. Liberal strategists are counting on him out-perform his rivals on the hustings.The latest Liberal slogan — “Choose Forward” — appeals to Canadians to continue supporting the party’s general direction, implicitly acknowledging that not everyone is entirely satisfied with some of the particulars. It attempts to frame the election as a choice between going forward or backward, not as a referendum on Trudeau’s first four years.As Trudeau put it in the interview: “I think people get that there is a choice in this election, that it’s not about judging me on everything you’d hoped I’d do and where I might not have fulfilled all everyone’s individual hopes for what this could be.”According to strategists, the key to victory is framing the election as a binary choice between the Liberals and Conservatives. In other words, forget about those New Democrats and Greens, whom Liberals intend to mention as little as possible even while emphasizing the values and policies they share. OTTAWA — Canada’s 2019 federal election could wind up looking a lot like the 1972 cliffhanger — the last time a Trudeau asked Canadians for a second mandate after the first blush of Trudeaumania had dissipated.But if Liberals play their cards right, party strategists are hoping it will end up more like a replay of 2015, with Canadians choosing to continue moving forward with Justin Trudeau’s progressive agenda rather than going back to the bad old days of Stephen Harper’s Conservatives.Never mind that Harper is no longer Conservative leader. His successor, Andrew Scheer, is, by his own admission, “Stephen Harper with a smile” and his agenda, by the Liberals’ telling, is Harper’s agenda: tax breaks for the wealthy, cuts in services for everyone else, no action on climate change, the politics of fear and division. They’ll reinforce that message by tying Scheer wherever possible to someone else who isn’t running: Ontario’s unpopular Progressive Conservative premier, Doug Ford. And they’ll no doubt throw in, at least obliquely, references to mercurial U.S. President Donald Trump.Here’s how Trudeau himself framed the choice in a recent interview:“We are on a very good path and we need to continue it because we see what happens elsewhere in the world when people make poor choices. Hell, we’re seeing in Ontario what happens with cuts to services and tax breaks for the rich,” he said.“I mean, it doesn’t work and that’s the big thing that we turned around (in 2015). We said no, you don’t grow an economy through trickle-down, you grow it through investing in people, investing in their communities. That was the big disagreement we had with the Conservatives in 2015 and it remains the big disagreement we have with them in 2019.”At the moment, however, polls suggest the Liberals are essentially tied with the Conservatives, with neither in a position to capture a majority of seats in the House of Commons. Should that hold, the outcome could be very similar to 1972, when the Liberals under Trudeau’s father Pierre wound up with the barest of minorities, just two seats ahead of the Progressive Conservatives.There are, says historian and former Liberal MP John English, some “really striking parallels” between Trudeau senior’s bid for a second term and that of his eldest son. Both swept to power on a wave of adulation rarely seen in Canadian politics, creating unrealistic expectations that crashed against the hard rock of reality during four years of governing. At the same time, Liberals need to motivate progressive voters to back Trudeau again. They can’t afford to let disappointed progressives — turned off by Trudeau buying a petroleum pipeline or scrapping his promise to end Canada’s first-past-the-post electoral system or the SNC-Lavalin ethics imbroglio, for instance  — to drift over to the NDP or Greens, or just stay home. Robust turnout will be crucial, as it was in 2015 when young voters turned out in droves to support the Liberals.Liberals are under no illusions they’ll be able to replicate the enthusiasm that attended Trudeau’s debut election. But they’ll emphasize what they say is at stake if the Conservatives win, reversing all the progress that’s been made on everything from climate change to gender equality and gay rights — a tactic evident in the interview with Trudeau.“Just across the country, seeing conservative premiers elected from the Rockies to the Bay of Fundy, who are trying to turn back the clock on the fight against climate change. I mean people are like, whoa, there is a lot at stake,” he said.While national poll numbers suggest a dead heat with the Conservatives, regional results tend to favour the Liberals in areas with lots of seats, such as Ontario and Quebec. They expect to lose MPs in the Prairies and know they’re unlikely to sweep all 32 seats in the Atlantic provinces as they did in 2015, although they hope to hang onto most. What will happen in British Columbia, where a four-way fight among Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Greens is playing out, is unpredictable.But Liberals are still hoping to offset some of those losses with gains in Central Canada, which accounts for almost 60 per cent of the 338 seats up for grabs, capitalizing on Ford’s unpopularity in Ontario and the collapse of the NDP in Quebec.KEYS TO VICTORY:— Frame the election as a binary choice between forward-looking Liberals and backward-looking Conservatives.— Paint Scheer as a clone of Stephen Harper and a yes-man to conservative premiers, particularly Ontario’s unpopular Doug Ford.— Motivate disappointed progressive voters to back Trudeau once again by emphasizing that all the progress made, however imperfect, would be reversed if the Conservatives win.— Pick up seats in Ontario and Quebec to offset inevitable losses elsewhere.— Ensure Justin Trudeau is at the top of his game.

4Q49.348.846.4 2Q49.855.256.3 Is the Beard at risk of burning out?James Harden’s effective field goal percentage by quarter James Harden’s style of offense isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Some fans feel like his trademark stepback move is a travel the vast majority of the time he does it. Some knock his tendency to draw fouls, sometimes fooling referees into giving him free throws when he barrels toward the rim.But whatever you feel about the reigning league MVP, he’s putting together a solid case this season to win the award for a second time. Harden has compiled video-game numbers lately, averaging 42 points, 8.4 rebounds and 9.7 assists since the calendar flipped to 2019. And his Houston club — which struggled badly out of the gate and has watched just about every one of Harden’s teammates fall victim to the injury bug — is now 14-4 over its last 18 games.But Harden’s incredible play raises an important question: Can the 29-year-old realistically keep up what has been a near-historic one-man show without burning out during the NBA playoffs?That dilemma is a ways off, though. For the time being, the Rockets have to be thrilled with the production they’ve gotten from Harden, who scored 57 points in Monday’s win over Memphis. He has notched 30 points or more in 17 straight games, the longest streak since the merger in 1976.The Rockets star has long been a statistical outlier, but this season has brought some eye-popping metrics, even when judged against Harden’s lofty standards. He leads the league in points per game and is scoring 5 more on average than the No. 2 scorer, Steph Curry. And he drives to the basket an NBA-high 20 times per game. The Beard averages a league-high 37 minutes per night1Tied with Washington’s Bradley Beal. and has launched 512 3-pointers, almost 13 per game — the most in the NBA.But Harden’s craziest offensive number, and perhaps the one that’s most concerning, is his 691 direct isolation plays (a 1-on-1 play that ends with a shot, turnover or foul).2Specifically, 1-on-1 plays where the ball-handler shoots, gets fouled, turns the ball over or makes a pass that produces a shot attempt within one dribble of the catch. That’s more than any other NBA team has had so far this season. Once more for emphasis: According to stat-tracking database Second Spectrum, Harden all by himself has gone 1-on-1 more than any team’s full roster, combined, has.Maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that Mike D’Antoni and the Rockets have resorted to having Harden isolate more, with both Chris Paul and Eric Gordon out of the lineup, but all that 1-on-1 play can be super draining. And that could be one reason that Harden’s shooting percentages have been falling considerably during games. (In particular, in fourth quarters, he’s shooting just 47.4 percent3Down from 62.7 percent in the first, 57.1 percent in the second and 56.5 percent in the third. from the restricted area — perhaps a sign that he’s fatigued and not getting enough lift to finish shots over taller players.)During the 2016-17 campaign, Harden dominated much like he has this season before ultimately burning out and having one of the most lifeless series-ending showings ever for a star player. In fact, the lefty has seen quarter-by-quarter declines in his efficiency numbers each of the past three seasons. 3Q54.753.455.1 quarter2016-172017-182018-19 1Q54.1%57.7%56.9% Sources: NBA, NBA Advanced Stats Although it might seem too early to start talking about burnout, it’s worth noting that Harden’s degree of single-handed dominance is approaching 2016-17 Russell Westbrook levels. Harden has a current usage rate of 39.9 percent, down slightly from the NBA-record 41.7 percent mark that Westbrook posted after Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to join the Warriors.The problem is that players who log usage rates that high in the regular season generally don’t enjoy much playoff success. In fact, no player who had a regular-season usage rate of 35 percent or higher has ever won an NBA championship in that season. And of the players with the seven highest single-season usage rates, none made it out of the first round of the postseason in those years.4Not counting Harden. DeMarcus Cousins failed to reach the postseason in 2016-17, and Westbrook failed to get there in 2014-15.Even if the Rockets did want to limit Harden’s usage before the playoffs, Houston is running out of other players to use — at least at the moment. The team lost yet another weapon on Sunday, when Clint Capela damaged his right thumb ligament. He’ll now miss 4 to 6 weeks.Capela’s absence, on top of Paul’s, is a huge blow. The Harden-Paul-Capela trio was essentially unbeatable last season, and the Rockets went 42-3 in the regular season when that lineup took the court. Without those two or Gordon, Harden has no choice but to go out with guns blazing. In the three games this season in which Harden scored fewer than 20 points, the Rockets lost by a whopping 18, 19 and 27 points.D’Antoni’s teams have long been top-heavy, and that flaw has reared its ugly head come playoff time. But now, the thin nature of the Rockets’ roster is showing itself in January, and it’s putting even more strain on an MVP who’s already carrying a historic amount of weight on his back.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more
