Vineland is only of county’s three major towns to see big changes in government office.

On New Year’s Day, City Council and residents gathered at City Hall for a swearing-in ceremony. Former City Council President Anthony Fanucci was sworn in as mayor, then congratulated the returning members of City Council—Paul Spinelli and Angela Calakos. Also sworn into office were three newly elected Council members—David Acosta, Ron Franceschini, and Al Vargas.

Millville’s next municipal election will be in November 2017 and Bridgeton’s will be in November 2018.

“I look forward to working together with the members of City Council, and with the dedicated employees who manage the day-to-day operations of the city, as we face the numerous challenges that lay ahead,” Fanucci said after becoming mayor. “Having just completed my term as City Council president, I am well versed on the status of various development projects, legal issues, operational concerns, and contractual negotiations, so I am able to hit the ground running.... Our agenda is ambitious and admittedly some items will take time to develop.... Our first major task will be to formulate and pass the 2017 municipal budget.”

Fanucci’s first City Council meeting as mayor will be held on Tuesday, January 10. City Council meetings are scheduled on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, beginning with pre-meeting conferences at 6 p.m. and meetings starting at 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers, second floor of City Hall.

Health And Fitness

The new year is upon us. This is the time when we traditionally take inventory of our lives and resolve to improve our health, wealth, and happiness in the coming year. Lose weight, get more sleep, eat healthier, reduce stress, increase exercise, quit smoking, help others—the resolution is likely the same as you had last year. So what can you do to make it your lifestyle instead of an aspiration?

Don’t let the lofty goals of the new year get in the way of success. Health professionals encourage reaching your goals through a series of small, more easily attainable steps, which encourage achievement and break the cycle of giving up before January is even over.

“When it comes to exercise, make goals that are realistic and attainable,” advises George Steinbronn, Jr., CEO of the Cumberland Cape Atlantic YMCA. “Pace yourself and think of it as a long-distance run and not a sprint. Exercise to the point where you feel tired, but good enough to do more. Exercising to exhaustion will leave you unmotivated and eventually you will quit.”

“Small changes can truly add up to make larger impacts on people’s overall health,” explains dietitian and nutritionist Elise Deming with Village Super Market, Inc., As a ShopRite dietitian, Deming provides free nutrition counseling, community programming, cooking classes, recipe makeovers, store nutrition tours, and lunch-and-learns, to the Cumberland County community. “One of the greatest pleasures of my job is helping people make these small, but impactful changes in their lives. That’s why I’m so proud that Shop Rite made this commitment to the community by having dietitians in their stores,” she said.

Perhaps a best-kept secret, ShopRite started this service 10 years ago. Currently, 130 in-store dietitians serve clients in 140 stores in the northeast, including Shop Rite stores in Vineland and Hammonton, where you’ll find Deming.

“These changes can be as simple as having a plant-based dinner one night a week,” she said, recommending having fruit as dessert, making half of your plate fruits and vegetables, or switching out a side dish of rice or pasta for mashed sweet potatoes or spaghetti squash a few nights a week.

However, without education and prompting, even little changes won’t come to mind to most as they go about their weekly grocery shopping. But if you take a look around, particularly in the produce section, you’ll see tips and recipes that can help you eat healthier. The store also has pre-packaged items you need prepare these recipes.

To encourage healthy choices in the next generation, Shop Rite offers a free fruit, usually a clementine or banana to children when they enter the store. “Making healthy eating fun is the best way to help kids make healthy choices. Let your children experiment with foods, help you prepare foods, and taste new foods. It creates an excitement that will keep them coming back for new, healthy foods and they may even teach their parents a few things.”

As a further commitment to offering shoppers both convenient and healthier food options, Shop Rite recently launched a new line of organic and pure ingredient products under the name Wholesome Pantry. This selection, which is found in nearly every aisle of the store, includes frozen, produce, dairy, meat and snack products void of 110 ingredients and artificial additives, flavors or preservatives. The organic line is USDA-certified organic and complies with standards set by the USDA National Organic Program.

“We know there’s a growing demand for simple foods that are free from artificial ingredients, and we also know that our customers want these foods to be accessible and convenient,” said Chris Lane, executive vice president, Wake fern Food Corp. “With Wholesome Pantry on our shelves, we can offer products that embrace the free-from and organic food trends, and deliver the exceptional quality our customers trust and expect from ShopRite.”

In-store dietitians like Deming also include Wholesome Pantry products in recipes, which encourages experimentation with all types of foods.

“I believe that placing people on ‘diets’ incriminates food, which is there to fuel our bodies,” she explained, adding that options and choices provide variety in flavors and nutrition that encourages healthy eating. “That’s why I believe lifestyle changes are much more effective and positive.”
