Mobility Disability Doesn’t Slow Ipock

danvance_120The unexpected often happens to Frances Ipock, who reads this column in the New Bern (NC) Sun Journal. She contracted polio at four months old, began using leg braces at age 2, and as a teen spent at least six months straight in a hospital following leg operations on separate occasions.

“I also got my driver’s license at age 33,” said 70-year-old Ipock in a telephone interview. “I never thought I’d be able to drive. And I also never thought I would get married because I didn’t think anyone would want a handicapped person for a spouse.”

Hand controls enabled her to begin driving a car at 33 and at age 17 she began a 52-year marriage relationship. She also has three children and worked 35 years at different jobs. But what came most unexpected in her life was a series of traumatic events starting in 1998.

She said, “That was when this truck came toward me on the wrong side of the road, hit the brake, and started fishtailing. The impact broke my (left) leg. I’d been on my way home from singing to residents at a nursing home. They had to get me out of the car using the Jaws of Life.” A doctor nearly had to amputate her leg.

Then in 2001, and using a wheelchair, she badly fractured her left leg a second time when falling forward after a child pushed her down a ramp too fast. Today, though completely unable to move her legs without using her hands, she still drives a car using hand controls.

She said, “However, I can go down the ramp and out to my car (in my wheelchair) and get in using a transfer board. But if no one is around, I can’t get my wheelchair into the trunk or take it out when I get to my destination. I like being independent and don’t like having to call people for help.” One concern of hers lately has been her overly steep wheelchair ramp, which has made rolling downhill unsafe.

Ipock had advice for seniors trying to remain independent: “If you try doing something and can’t or are unable to do it, then try doing it a different way. There are ways to do the things you want to do. You just have to keep trying to find out which way is best for you.”

Lions Baseball to Honor Coach Veth

Middletown to start 100th Year Season

MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Middletown High School North will be recognizing one of their baseball legends when they host Rich Veth Day prior to their home opener on April 9th.  The event kicks off the 100th season of interscholastic baseball in Middletown Township.

    Rich Veth, who served as head coach for 22 years prior to his death in 2002, will have his uniform formally retired in a public ceremony beginning at 9 AM on the baseball field named in his honor.   Known as “One-Eight” to his players and in Shore area baseball circles, a sign and granite monument bearing his name and uniform will be unveiled.  All former and current Lion players will be recognized prior to the game against division foe Marlboro High School.

    Middletown High School, or Leonardo High as it was more commonly known at the time, played the first game in school history on Saturday, May 8, 1913.   They defeated a “picked team” from Keansburg by the score of 10 to 4 on their home field.  The baseball diamond was located on Leonardville Road across from the high school, which is now the site of the current Bayshore Middle School.   Since that inaugural game, Middletown has accumulated over 1100 wins.

    Rich Veth notched 374 of these victories before a valiant battle with cancer ended his career prior to the 2002 season.  During his tenure the Lions garnered 13 championships, including state titles in 1983 and 1989.  He turned out numerous All State, All Shore and All County players, many of whom continued their careers at the college and professional level.   Jim “Cat” Hunter, the ace of the 1982 staff, pitched for the Milwaukee Brewers at the major league level. 

    Veth’s effect on his players went beyond the lessons he taught on the field.   “Coach Veth was a great role model for his players,” said Dean Ehehalt, the Head Baseball Coach at Monmouth University and an All State player for the Lions in 1982.  “He inspired everyone to do their best.  One-Eight taught  us about competition, character and always emphasized family.  He was definitely a positive influence on me and made me realize I wanted to coach.”

    Vincent Malizia, a standout on the Lions 1993 State championship squad had similar sentiments.  “As a coach he was a guy who was straight forward and always took a professional approach to baseball.  He had a real passion for the game and it showed when he was on the field.”  Malizia, who furthered his playing career at the University of South Carolina, is now an executive with Nestle Waters.  He also had a light hearted moment to share about his mentor.  “When coaching at third base during a play that required the runner to slide, One-Eight would be yelling ‘Get down – get down.’  And to emphasize his point he would flatten himself on the ground.   As players we got a kick out of it that he would end up dirtier than us!”

    Another Lion legend to share his thoughts about Veth was Chris Barnes, who created his own coaching legend in football at Jackson Memorial and Wall High School.   “After 23 years spent as a teacher, counselor and coach I can truly appreciate what a tremendous influence Rich Veth had on me and so many who have played for him.  Over the years, when his name was mentioned among the coaching fraternity within the shore conference, there is nothing but admiration and tremendous respect shared in the conversation.  His passion, discipline and attention to detail forced us to be at our very best everyday!  His energy fueled our success!”   When his daughter, who plays varsity softball for Wall, was assigned Uniform number 18, Barnes could not have been happier.  “As I watch her career unfold, seeing that number on her back each and every game evokes many fond memories of the man that he was to all of us!  Rich Veth has left a tremendous legacy in a town and a community that he loved so much, Middletown.  We all are truly blessed.”

 

    Mike Dooley, also a former player for Veth in 1992-93 is in his first year as head coach of the Lions.    He is only the 10th coach at the school in the past 100 years.  He too recalls ‘One-Eight’s’ commitment to family both on the field and at home.  “Each year at Easter time he would remind us to make sure we bought a card for our mother.   He also had a rule that we never practiced on Mother’s Day.”  Dooley has committed himself to following the principles and coaching philosophies of his former coach.  At a recent First Pitch Pancake Breakfast in which his Lions had a family style meal, he stated, “Rich Veth developed Middletown North into a premier program throughout the Shore area.   Other teams had a fear of playing us.  We plan to bring back that same pride and level of play.”

Experience Cutting Edge Training at Our New State of the Art Training Studio – Shore Results

Our “All Inclusive Training Package” Takes Training To the Next Level!

Results.  No matter who you are, what your fitness level, or what your fitness goals, when you commit to joining a gym you want results.  EPH&F has created an All Inclusive Training Program (AITP) and a brand new training studio to do just that—deliver results. 

“You asked and we delivered,” said EPH&F owner, Paul Mazzella. “We needed more space and a place where we could put our new cutting edge, All-Inclusive Training Program into action.  The space is called Shore Results.”  One space over from the EPH&F main gym in Eastpointe Plaza, Shore Results has been built specifically for AITP clients and trainers/coaches.   Opening the first week of April, this unique training studio also includes a shake bar called Shore Shakes for recovery shakes at the end of a workout or as a meal replacement.  “Shore Shakes will provide members with delicious and nutritionally balanced shakes designed to optimize your workouts and help your body be more efficient,” said Mazzella. 

“We’re excited about Shore Results and our All Inclusive Training Package because it offers a unique training experience at an unbelievable value,” said Mazzella.  “It is probably unlike anything you have been a part of before, but the bottom line is it works.”

The All Inclusive Training Package Is A Cutting Edge Training System That Gets Results

“AITP starts with a detailed evaluation with one of our fitness coaches,” said Brian Bott, Head Certified Personal Trainer of Shore Results.  “After discussing your health and fitness goals, we have you perform a movement screening.  This is the keystone of the program.  From this movement screening evaluation, we determine your strengths and weaknesses.  This enables us to design a training program specifically for you that will not only help you lose body fat, but help prevent injury and get you moving better.  But that’s only the jumping off point; the All Inclusive Training Package includes so much more.”

“Each month you will receive 4 intensive semi-private coaching sessions with one of our Shore Results fitness coaches who will teach and help motivate you through your program,” continued Bott.  “Your program will consist of strength exercises and movements that utilize some of the weights and equipment with which you may be familiar, but also many with which you will not be familiar.”  For instance, the program does not include the use of selectorized strength machines that are typical to most fitness facilities.   The type of equipment you will find in Shore Results are cable machines, squat racks and lifting platforms, dumbbells, kettlbells, TRXs, chin up bars, battle ropes and a 75ft x 8ft section of conditioning turf to push the prowler sled.

 

 

 

 

 

Unlimited Coaching Will Help You Commit To Your Workouts

“Perhaps the most valuable piece of the membership is the unlimited coaching that you receive when you come into Shore Results to work out on your own,” said Bott.  “This is a crucial element to be successful in your program and achieve the results you want.  Many of us have no problem coming to the gym for our scheduled coaching session.  Where the rubber meets the road is coming to the gym on your own.   But when you have an All Inclusive Training membership you won’t be working out alone.  It means that you can come into the gym at any time and there will always be a coach available to answer any questions or help you with any exercises you may be having trouble with in your program.”   AITP members will also have their programs updated every 4 to 6 weeks to keep workouts efficient and effective.

Nutrition Is The Key To Taking Your Results To a Whole New Level

The final piece to getting “sure” results is a sound nutrition plan.  “All AITP members receive a 30 minute consultation with our nutritionist, Kim Garrity, to get you set up on a nutrition plan which includes meal plans, body measurements and body composition testing,” said Bott.  “You will receive a journal to log your meals, which you bring into each session to be reviewed.”  “A huge part of people achieving results with a fitness program is nutrition,” said Garrity.  “This piece of the fitness puzzle has to be in place for you to really succeed.”   As part of the coaching team, Garrity will be on hand to answer your nutrition questions and adjust your nutrition plan as needed. In addition, unlimted group nutrition discussions will be available each week to provide accountability and ongoing support for behavioral changes.

AITP Membership Also Includes the Basic Gym Membership

“As part of your All Inclusive Training Package membership, we’ve included the basic EPH&F gym membership so that you can still take any of our 40+ group classes or use the treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bicycles or any of our other equipment in the main gym,” added Mazzella.  “The AITP membership really is a unique program guaranteed to help you reach your fitness goals and it is a tremendous value when you consider the scope of what it includes and how sure we are that you will get sure results!”

The All Inclusive Fitness Program Includes:

Eastpointe Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Is Expanding

Its Space and Services, Too

“Over the past year we have had a major increase in patients seeking traditional physical therapy for post-surgical rehabilitation such as knee or shoulder surgery,” said Dr. Jay Mazzella, Clinical Director of Eastpointe Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.  “To handle this increase, we decided that we needed to give our physical therapy patients and therapists their own space.  So, we have opened a 1400 square foot office at the end of Eastpointe Plaza.  We see our first patient in the new space beginning on April 2nd.”  The renovated space includes new state of the art equipment and room to grow.  “We are adding two more full time physical therapists to our staff and we will be adding acupuncture to our list of services by mid-summer,” continued Dr. Mazzella.  “Also, by moving physical therapy to its’ own space, we free up space for our chiropractic and massage clients in our existing office.”  Eastpointe Chiropractic & Physical Therapy is an integrated practice combining chiropractic care, physical therapy and massage therapy to produce a healthy mind and body.

The Hazlet Township School District Approves Zero Tax Levy Increase

2012-2013 School Budget 

HAZLET, NJ – The Hazlet Township Board of Education approved the 2012-2013 School District Operating Budget, with no tax increase, at their March 26, 2012 Board of Education Public Hearing.  Dr. Bernard F. Bragen, Jr., Superintendent of Schools, stated that “Through our practice of conservative budgeting, proactive management of expenses, fiscal prudence, aggressive purchasing, cost avoidance and alternative revenue creation, the District was able to create a budget with no tax increase for the second consecutive year.”   Without any increase in school taxes for the past two years, Hazlet’s real estate tax levy in this budget is $1.2 million less than permitted by State Regulations, which allows for a two percent annual increase.

Dr. Bragen and Mr. Christopher Mullins, School Business Administrator, began the budget presentation by reviewing the District’s Mission Statement and the main budgetary objectives.  Dr. Bragen indicated that the District’s ultimate goal was for all students of the Hazlet Township school system to graduate with the college and career readiness skills they need to be successful in life.
