first_img­­­­­­By Mary Ann BourbeauWEST LONG BRANCH – Monmouth University will now be the official archival repository for Bruce Springsteen’s written works, photographs, periodicals and artifacts.The creation of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music, a collaborative partnership between the rocker and the university, was announced on Jan. 10 during “A Conversation with Bruce Springsteen,” held at the university’s Pollak Theatre.“Monmouth University is excited by the opportunity to grow our relationship with Bruce Springsteen,” said Monmouth University President Paul R. Brown. “The establishment of the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music celebrates and reinforces the Jersey Shore’s legacy in the history of American music while providing a truly transformative experience for our students.”Springsteen said he was honored yet humbled that this new center was being formed to honor his respected body of work.The new collaboration builds on a relationship the university has with the The Boss.The Bruce Springsteen Special Collection at Monmouth University opened on campus in 2011. It is a research facility that contains 35,000 items from nearly 47 countries, covering every stage of Springsteen’s career – books, magazines, fanzines, newspaper articles, comic books, tour books, academic journals and papers. The new center will build on that, promoting the legacy of Springsteen and his role in American music while celebrating other icons, including Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Frank Sinatra.“We are excited about the opportunities this creates for our students and the community,” said Joe Rapolla, chair of the Music and Theatre Department and director of the Music Industry Program at the university. “Bruce has a long history at Monmouth, and we look forward to adhering to his high standards of excellence as we begin this new venture.”After the announcement was made, the conversation with Springsteen began, moderated by Robert Santelli, a former music professor at Monmouth University. Santelli currently serves as executive director of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The two spent time talking about Springsteen’s early history in the Long Branch area, where he played dozens of concerts, nine of them on the Monmouth College campus. Many were with his early bands – the Castiles, Earth, Steel Mill and Dr. Zoom & the Sonic Boom.“I remember playing on the great lawn out back in my shirtless days,” he said. “We played here in the gym. We had a pretty good local audience. Those were big shows for us in those days. We pulled in a couple of thousand people. At a buck a head, you could live for a long time on that.”Springsteen spoke of the small house he lived in on West End Court, where he wrote most of his breakthrough album, “Born to Run.” He also reminisced about playing at the Upstage Club, a small venue above a beauty salon in Asbury Park, and about the up-and-coming bands he saw in Convention Hall, such as The Who, when they opened for Herman’s Hermits.“The scene was pretty rich with musicians,” he said. “There were a lot of venues for commercial acts and Top 40 bands. But if you played original music, it was tough to find a place to play. It was difficult to find a paying job.”Santelli noted that back in those days, the Jersey Shore didn’t have the national reputation for its music scene that it has today.“It had the reputation of a place you want to get out of,” Santelli said.Springsteen noted that he read in the newspaper the day before that New Jersey leads the nation with the highest number of residents exiting the state for elsewhere.“I made my living writing about moving away,” he said. “Maybe there was something to that.”He spoke of his early creative process, when he was greatly influenced by the songs of Bob Dylan and Tim Buckley.“I decided I was going to be a poet even though I don’t read poetry,” he said. “I had a rhyming dictionary and I was going with it 100 percent. The entire ‘Blinded by the Light’ came from that dictionary.”Once “Born to Run” was released, Springsteen became such a success that in October 1975, he was famously on the cover of Time and Newsweek at the same time.“It was a big deal,” Springsteen said. “For the young people in the audience, Time and Newsweek were magazines. I’ve actually outlived them.”After the 90-minute conversation ended, Springsteen answered some questions from the audience in the 700-seat auditorium. One man wanted to know why Springsteen decided to play the Super Bowl half-time show.“They were asking me to do it for about 10 years but it seemed a little on the cheesy side, like the music was incidental,” he said.As the years went on, he became more impressed with the production of the shows and decided to take on the challenge.“It was the most terrifying and thrilling 12 minutes of my work life,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – For Mayor Gerard Scharfenberger, last year was “a magnificent banner year.” He is predicting more good things for the township in 2017.Scharfenberger, who served as last year’s mayor, was again selected by the five-member Township Committee to serve as mayor for the year at the township’s reorganization meeting, held on New Year’s Day.Scharfenberger and his running mate Kevin Settembrino were re-elected in November, again securing the Republican’s exclusive majority for the five-member governing body, as they were sworn in for another three-year term.Committee member Stephanie C. Murray was selected through a unanimous vote to serve this year as deputy mayor.Scharfenberger said he was “both humbled and honored” to again serve as mayor as he spoke to a large audience that included state and county elected officials, families, as well as township employees and appointed volunteers. Looking back at the year just past, Scharfenberger referenced such developments as the Memorial Sloan Kettering outpatient cancer care facility newly opened in the township, renovating the decade-long vacant Alcatel-Lucent Red Hill Road site.The municipality transitioned to using the county 911 emergency system, which the mayor said “has been very smooth.” Another high point, he noted, was the establishment of a county waterfront park at the site of Chris’ Marina, overlooking the Swimming River, in the township’s River Plaza section. The park is “a huge win” for the township, the mayor said.Another noteworthy success is the township farmer’s market established last year and operated at the township’s commuter train parking. The response to it, Scharfenberger noted, was “overwhelmingly positive.”Much like Memorial Sloan Kettering’s renovation and redevelopment of an existing site, Scharfenberger pointed to the township committee’s support of the credo of “Utilize what’s existing” before building new. Another example of that is the redevelopment of the former Pathmark supermarket and the shopping center at Highway 35 and New Monmouth Road, with the recent opening of a T.J. Maxx department store, the forthcoming Bed Bath & Beyond at the shopping center and the redoing of the shopping center’s entire façade. That location, he said, “promises to be a successful and profitable” retail location.In the coming year, the community will look to work with county and state officials on the Port Belford redevelopment project and for a Highway 36 upgrade project extending from the township’s Ideal Beach area to Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook, at the Sea Bright border.There are other challenges that local elected officials will continue to address, Scharfenberger maintained. They include the impact of the heroin/opioid epidemic that is afflicting all communities with the mayor vowing the township “will not be silent” in combating it.A major concern remains property taxes and Scharfenberger said he “hopes legislators will look at alternatives” to funding public education to offer relief to homeowners.Overall, “Middletown is in extraordinary good health” and he, his fellow township committee members and township employees, along with the scores of volunteers will continue to put forth “110 percent effort, every step of the way,” Scharfenberger said.last_img read more

first_imgAs disposal costs for Fats, Oils & Greases (FOG) remain high across Ireland, Donegal company DS Environmental Services Ltd in conjunction with Intertrade Ireland and Queen’s University Belfast continue to improve their services while striving to drive down the long term costs associated with this troublesome waste.What is FOG? Fats, Oils & Greases are a by-product of the catering industry and when they find their way into our sewers they put unnecessary strain on the network and cause major blockages in the system.For these reasons it is the responsibility for each food service establishment to have grease traps installed and emptied on a regular basis. Recent enforcement of legislation has caused the disposal of this material to rise significantly.Proactive solution for Donegals’ Catering industryDS Environmental Services Ltd has been taking a proactive approach to these challenges. Chemical Engineer with the company, Joe Wilson, has been working closely with the Questor centre at Queen’s University Belfast in developing new processes to manage Fats, Oils & Greases more efficiently. He is confident they will be able to offer their customers a much improved service in the near future. As part of a maintenance contract, the new service would include regular emptying and cleaning of grease traps, as well as advice on how to reduce the volume of grease going through the system. These measures would likely reduce the overall cost to the customer in the long runCommitment to the North WestDS Environmental Services continue striving towards improving the services on offer to their customers and for full details of their services check out www.dsenvironmental.ie or phone 074 9139522 DONEGAL COMPANY LEADS PROJECT TO LOWER COSTS AND IMPROVE MANAGEMENT OF GREASE TRAPS was last modified: October 15th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DS EnvironmentalQueens Universitylast_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK — The big men were a big disappointment in Washington. Nene and Marcin Gortat quickly made up for that.Nene scored 20 points, three other Washington big men were in double figures, and the Wizards beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-90 on Saturday night to split their home-and-home series.Overpowered by Brook Lopez on Jan. 16 in their building, the Wizards bounced back behind 10 points and 16 rebounds from Gortat, and strong bench efforts from Kris Humphries (13 points) and Kevin Seraphin (12).“We knew that it’s going to be a tough game for us but end of the day, me and Nene, we believe we are one of the most dominant big men in the league and unfortunately we didn’t play that way yesterday,” Gortat said. “Today was a little bit different. We dominated the game and we helped our team to win this game.”Bradley Beal finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Wizards, who shot 52 percent from the field to overcome their 14-of-27 effort from the free throw line.Jarrett Jack had 22 points and eight assists for the Nets. They had snapped a seven-game losing streak with their 102-80 victory Jan. 16, when Nene and Gortat combined for just 15 points.Lopez scored 26 points off the bench in that game and had 13 by halftime of this one. But the Wizards held him to two points after the break and turned around the game with an 18-2 run in the third quarter.“Tonight obviously they came in here a little bit more desperate knowing that we went into Washington last night and got a win. We knew we were going to get their best shot today but I thought we played great,” Nets forward Joe Johnson said. “I just think down the stretch we couldn’t get stops and we couldn’t make the shots to get us over the hump.”The Nets led 51-50 after a close first half in which neither team led by more than five. A good start to the third quarter had them ahead 63-56 five minutes into the period. But Nene and Gortat began wearing them down, scoring 10 straight to go ahead 66-63 when Nene dunked forcefully between Kevin Garnett and Lopez.Jack stopped the run with a basket, but Washington answered with eight more in a row to build a 74-65 advantage on Rasual Butler’s basket.Brooklyn tied it at 81 early in the fourth before Seraphin had two baskets and Humphries another in an 8-2 burst that made it 89-83 midway through the period, and Nene had a three-point play about 3 minutes later after the Nets had cut it to three.The backcourt of John Wall and Beal gets most of the attention, but Gortat said people shouldn’t forget how good Washington’s forwards are.“I don’t really pay attention to what people think about our team and stuff like that,” Humphries said. “For me it’s just doing what we’ve got to do. We lost last game so this was a must-win for us.”(BRIAN MAHONEY, AP Basketball Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgAdam and Kane are doing a fantastic job from the tournament control box (the ‘fishbowl’) and they gladly offer their interesting spin on the events of day two at the 2004 National 18 Years Championships… Comments from Adam & Kane The Big Fish have been working tirelessly to bring you the truth about the `Joeygate’ scandal which saw Joe Williams fall from the stage during the AUSTOUCH launch yesterday. Although we can’t confirm it at this stage, we have uncovered an allegation that Benji Marshall, fellow rising NRL star, had in fact told Joey that he could move his chair back further than he could. In an attempt to move his chair so that he could selflessly offer his support to the youngsters behind him, Joey asked Benji for some assistance in gauging the distance he could move before falling. Benji, at his practical joke best, seized the opportunity to send his mate plummeting to the ground! When asked if this was the case, Joe declined to accuse his friend of such a heinous crime but said he would be looking into it. We here at the fishbowl have received some video footage of the event and will be in the editing suite all night in an effort to uncover the truth. Rest assured that the slow motion replays will definitely be used to uncover the truth. In other news there have been some great games on field 1 today with ACT & SQBD Sharks leading the way with a `ding dong’ battle ending in a 4 all draw. Sharks #11, James Doolah showed dynamic skills, not only in his touch ability but also the beard growing stakes. He has a beard that a Yeti would be proud to own. We are sure that we could actually see it growing as the game progressed. If it continues to grow at this rate, don’t be surprised to see it braided before the end of the week. On the subject of braids, we here in the fishbowl are alarmed at the number of `Bali Bead’ style braids we are witnessing on the touch fields of sunny Coffs Harbour. We know its semi tropical and that it has the feel of a Bali holiday but the frightening factor is that more braids are being seen in the Boy’s division than the Girls! What’s doing there boy’s? What ever happened to the Skinhead, The Mullet? Real Men’s hairstyles. We are also alarmed at the number of `rough & ready’ styles worn by many of our young men. It seems that the youth of today are becoming lazy and just leaving the `bed hair’ effect to be worn all day. The surprising thing about this is that it takes a frightful amount of `product’ to achieve this lived in look. In the coming days, the fishbowl will be naming names and pin pointing the bad hair culprits! That’s all from Adam & Kane! “See ya when we’re lookin at ya!”last_img
