With its third annual calendar, Wheels & Wings, Dorn’s Classic Images (DCI) selected photographs that capture the Two River area’s good old days of planes, wagons, skates, classic autos, bikes and trolleys. The calendar has two “front” covers, both of them featuring shots of Red Bank Airport, which was actually in New Shrewsbury—now called Tinton Falls.Kathy Dorn Severini said, “Everyone seems to have a story about working at or flying out of the airport or dining at the Airport Inn next door. So the calendar’s proving to be very popular. I’m on one of the covers with my mom and dad, back in 1971, when the Dorn’s Tripacer (in the background) was the last plane to fly out of the airport on the field’s final day of operation.”The calendar includes memorable shots from its 10,000-image archive, of Red Bank, Fair Haven, Rumson, Highlands, Atlantic Highlands, Little Silver, Oceanport, Sea Bright, Long Branch, and Asbury Park. “We don’t always know the identity of all the persons depicted in the photos, but every year our customers get the satisfaction of recognizing friends and relatives and providing us with names,” says George Severini co-archivist with his wife Kathy and the calendar’s designer. He adds that, “This year, I again included more than one photo per month. There are so many beautiful photos to choose from.”“We’re proud that our calendar publication has become a tradition around the holidays. For six years our photos were featured in the Prown’s calendar as well as our independent version for the past three years. David Prown has always been a big civic booster for the area, and though he is not publishing his own calendar with Dorn’s images this year, he will be selling the calendars at his new location, Prown’s Doors and Windows, in Middletown,” Severini said.The calendars, which retail for $10, are available directly from DCI in Fair Haven and through the DCI Facebook page and on at dornsclassicimages.com. They are also available at: Sickles Market, Little Silver; Bain’s Hardware, Sea Bright; Red Bank FrameWorks; Renaissance, Atlantic Highlands; Fair Haven Hardware, Fair Haven; New Corner Restaurant, Red Bank; and Monmouth Museum’s Holiday Boutique on the Brookdale Community College Lincroft campus.
By John P. Paone, Jr., Esq. and Victoria E. Paone, Esq. |Americans have a love affair with pets. According to a recent survey, “three-fourths of Americans in their 30s have dogs, while 51 percent have cats.” It is not uncommon for people to spend thousands of dollars per year on pet clothing/accessories, food, photographs, medicine and the like. But what happens to “Fluffy” when parties go through a divorce?Under the common law, pets were treated as chattel-put another way-just a typical piece of property to be distributed like an automobile or a piano. In today’s world, however, there is a growing consensus that pets are more like family members and less like property. New Jersey courts have mirrored this sentiment and the leading case on this issue demonstrates that disputes over animals during divorce litigation can no longer be resolved by using basic property principles. In a case decided by the New Jersey Appellate Division, the court held that reimbursing a party for a dog’s monetary value (i.e. what you paid for the animal) is not an adequate remedy for purposes of compensating a party for the loss of the “special value” that some pets hold to their owners. That’s right, the court decided that money cannot resolve all problems even in the context of divorce litigation!This case further stands for the proposition that courts can and should determine which party has a “sincere” interest in possession of the pet and which party is merely asserting an interest in the pet “out of greed, ill-will or other sentiment or motive similarly unworthy of protection in a court of equity.” In determining whether a party or whether both parties have a true and equal interest in their pets, the court directs that focus should be placed on establishing “the facts and circumstances which endow the chattel with special…value.”Most commonly, the court will consider testimony and other proofs from parties demonstrating which party acts as the primary caretaker of the pet. Meaning, the court can contemplate who “potty trained” the animal, takes the animal to medical and grooming appointments, feeds and bathes the animal, etc. In addition, the court can consider whether a party had possession of the animal prior to the marriage. Furthermore, the court can examine where the children of the marriage primarily reside and deem whether it is in their “best interest” to enjoy the animal’s companionship at their primary place of residence.Less compelling factors that a court might also consider when determining possession of a pet is the party who is the title owner of the animal and if a certain party made the preliminary investigations or took the initial steps to acquire the pet. At this time in New Jersey, the test is not what is in the “best interest” of the pet. However, that may soon change based upon experiences in other jurisdictions.On September 27, 2018, the Governor of California, Jerry Brown, signed into law Assembly Bill 2274 which provides for the courts to “assign sole or joint ownership of a pet animal taking into consideration the care of the pet animal” in the context of a divorce case. Considering the “care” of a pet is akin to considering the “best interest” of a child when determining custody. Assemblyman Bill Quirk, who introduced the law, said “it’s time family pets received the status they deserve — family members.” This law takes effect January 1, 2019.It remains to be seen how New Jersey law will develop over the next few years regarding this very important issue of pet custody in divorce cases. Although the interpretation of pets as more than basic “chattel” is a fairly recent development in the law, it would not be surprising should New Jersey go the way of California and adopt a standard akin to that used for deciding child custody. In the interim, pet owners who are about to go through a divorce should consult with an attorney about how to pursue legal rights and remedies regarding custody and possession of Fluffy in a matrimonial action.John P. Paone, Jr., Esq. and Victoria E. Paone, Esq. are divorce and family law attorneys with the Law Offices of Paone, Zaleski & Murray, with offices in Red Bank and Woodbridge.This article was first published in the Oct. 25-31, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.

New Jersey state Alcoholic Beverage Control officers will be checking identificationcards and coolers at all entrances to the park and wrist bands will be given to those whoare of legal drinking age. Additionally, undercover officers will be patrolling the historic racing venue throughout the day to quell any disturbances and identify those who are impaired. OCEANPORT – Kids carrying in adult beverages and underage alcohol consumption will not be tolerated at the 145th running of the Haskell Invitational, according to borough Chief of Police Michael P. Kelly. “This is a drain on the units we have in place. Not only are we responsible for stoppingthe underage individuals, but because they are juveniles we then have to wait with themuntil their parents show up. We even had a few cases of taking them to the hospital lastyear. It’s a burden,” Kelly said. Kelly said local authorities will crack down on underage drinking attempts after a2018 event exhausted local and state police resources. Kelly said an updated plan will be implemented when the $1 million stakes race takesover Monmouth Park Saturday, July 20. “Having to commit resources to this is getting us away from our primary function, which is public safety of the thousands of park patrons. To the kids who are thinking of trying it, and to the parents of those kids, it will not be tolerated,” Kelly said.

O’NEILL ENVISIONS TRIPLE CROWN FOR AMERICAN PHAROAHLava Man is one of the newest members of racing’s Hall of Fame, and at 14, the oldwarrior is still in familiar environs as a valued pony at Doug O’Neill’s barn.A California-bred son of Slew City Slew, Lava Man was claimed during his 3-year-old season for $50,000 and retired with earnings of $5,268,706, most of that for owners STD Racing Stable and partner Jason Wood.Lava Man won seven Grade I races, to date more than any other Cal-bred in history, and 17 of 47 starts. Only Best Pal and 2014 Horse of the Year California Chrome have higher career earnings among Cal-breds.Lava Man won three consecutive runnings of the Hollywood Gold Cup from 2005 through 2007 and back-to-back editions of the Santa Anita Handicap in 2006 and 2007.“It’s unbelievable,” O’Neill said of the honor, which will officially be bestowed Aug. 7at the Fasig-Tipton sales pavilion in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.“Usually, your horse has to die to get in the Hall of Fame, so for him to get in it and still be such a healthy horse that’s still active for us daily and a big part of our team is very humbling and an amazing honor,” O’Neill said.O’Neill, who saddled I’ll Have Another to an upset victory in the 2012 Kentucky Derby and came within hours of running for the Triple Crown until an injury dashed those aspirations, has lofty expectations for this year’s favorite, the Bob Baffert-trained American Pharaoh, who worked five furlongs at Churchill Downs this morning under Martin Garcia in 58.40.It was the fastest of 32 drills at the distance. Pharoah galloped out six furlongs 1:11.40.“You just don’t know how good American Pharoah is,” O’Neill said. “He’s looked like anabsolute machine, and he’s doing it effortlessly. For him to win the Arkansas Derby from off the pace shows a different dimension.“If he stays injury-free, he’s got Triple Crown written all over him.” CAPTIVATING ‘VENEDA’-BEHOLDER MATCH LOOMS IN VANITYWhile the Kentucky Derby next Saturday is on every racing fan’s radar screen, another intriguing match looms a week later on May 9 at Santa Anita: the Grade I, $300,000 Vanity Stakes for older fillies and mares, and a possible showdown between streaking stakes winner Warren’s Veneda and two-time Eclipse Award champion Beholder.Warren’s Veneda, a California-bred daughter of Affirmative trained by Craig Lewis for owner/breeder Benjamin Warren, has won three straight stakes, including the Grade I Santa Margarita on March 14.Beholder, trained by Richard Mandella for B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm LLC, was champion filly at two and three and won her first start of 2015, the restricted Santa Lucia Stakes on April 10 in what perhaps amounted to a paid workout.“If I had my preference, she’s not who I’d choose to run against, a two-time Eclipse Award-winning champion, a great mare,” Lewis said. “We’re up against it.”Warren’s Veneda is scheduled to work five furlongs at Santa Anita this Thursday.While Beholder’s opposition in the Santa Lucia might be considered suspect on class, Lewis wasn’t buying.“They might be,” he said, “but Beholder’s prior record and her bankroll indicate that she’s a top-notch mare, no question. You don’t win $3 million if you’re not the goods, and she’s nine out of 10 on this race track. That’s pretty impressive.“They don’t come much better than her, so it’s going to be a challenge.”Mandella could be motivated by a revenge factor. He couldn’t be blamed for still harboring bitter memories of the 1995 Santa Anita Derby, when Larry the Legend, trained by Lewis, won by a head in a stretch-long drive over the Mandella trained Afternoon Deelites.Twenty years later, Mandella called recollection of the defeat “a nightmare.” PEDROZA ‘FIGHTING’ UPHILL BATTLE ON SATURDAYIf Martin Pedroza pulls off a miraculous double next Saturday, it would surpass his signature six consecutive victories on Breeders’ Cup Day, Oct. 31, 1992, at Oak Tree, and his triumph aboard 50-1 shot Martial Law in the 1989 Santa Anita Handicap.All he has to do is win the Churchill Downs Stakes on Private Zone, then catch a plane to Las Vegas for the welterweight title match at the MGM Grand between Manny Pacquiao and undefeated Floyd Mayweather.Oh, and one more thing. First, he needs a ticket to the fight.“He’s licensed, booked and ready to go,” said Pedroza’s long-time agent, Richie Silverstein, of the trip to Kentucky. “If things break right and the race is early, he could leave Kentucky at 4:20 and be in Vegas by 7, and get to the fight on time. But he needs a ticket.”To that end, ever the loyalist Silverstein offered his cell phone number should anyone scrounge up a ducat: 626-232 9898.
