The restaurant, which features a 3,300 square foot interior with seating for 122, is located at 635 N. Fair Oaks, near Vons.Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients – all for about $8. The generously-sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds. Restaurants make their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by Executive Chef Bradford Kent (the “Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. Almost all of the pizza and salad ingredients are free of artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and fillers and for pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese. The new Pasadena restaurant will also feature a selection of wine and draft beer.“Our mission at Blaze is really simple – we’re taking pizza back to its roots, “said Jim Mizes, president & COO of Blaze Pizza. “By making dough in-house, carefully sourcing ingredients, and cooking by fire, we’re giving guests a great way to enjoy artisanal pizza without the wait. It’s changing the way people think about and eat pizza.”Blaze’s obsessive attention to detail extends well beyond the food, with a carefully considered, modern approach to restaurant design. Driven by its commitment to “Intelligent Choices for Our Pizzas, People & Planet,” the restaurant is constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, uses eco-friendly packaging, and features energy-efficient LED lighting. Additionally, many of the restaurant’s unconventional design elements were inspired by the company’s celebration of individual expression.Blaze Pizza is looking forward to continuing to build strong roots within the community. To that end, the company has developed a turn-key in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 20% of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations, and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other organizations to host fundraising events at the new restaurant.

Timberland Libraries Boost Service Hours

Posted on by

first_imgSubmitted by Timberland Regional Library Facebook86Tweet0Pin0 Library patrons in the five-county Timberland Regional Library (TRL) service area asked for longer hours; starting September 2, they’ve got them! District-wide, 26 libraries and the Ask-A-Librarian service will add hours – a total of 58 more each week. The increased schedules come at no additional cost.TRL administration, branch librarians and staff members gathered public comments in the libraries, at public meetings and from online surveys. They counted usage hours, studied peak use times for computers, meeting space and circulation materials. Then they got creative – shifting people and duties into longer open hours and reducing the amount of work done while libraries are closed.Many communities will experience an increase in Saturday hours, resulting in all libraries being open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The new schedule provides more consistent, easy-to-remember opening times and in the largest libraries an extra hour on Friday evenings.“Libraries are at the heart of healthy communities,” Timberland Library Director Cheryl Heywood said. “They have one simple mission: to serve the public.”“To do this,” Heywood continued, “we have to listen to our communities, understand the issues and make the best changes possible. More open hours,” she added, “is a very good change.”last_img read more

Temba Bavuma’s 3 year old tweet comes back to haunt him as Kohli and…

Posted on by

first_imgAdvertisement kuNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs73swjWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ece9x( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) qwjk2zWould you ever consider trying this?😱5uCan your students do this? 🌚h05dRoller skating! Powered by Firework Three years ago, South African batsman Temba Bavuma was so awestruck watching Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane bat against a solid New Zealand team, that he couldn’t help but tweet about their ‘masterclass’ innings. But what he didn’t know, was that the duo and the tweet would come back to haunt him 3 years later during the ongoing Pune Test.Advertisement During the 3rd Test against the Kiwis, on October 2016, Kohli and Rahane put up a massive 365-run partnership for the 4th wicket which helped India declare at the score of 557 in the 1st innings. Kohli scored 211 and Rahane just fell short of a double hundred at 188. And Bavuma who enjoyed every moment of their innings, tweeted saying: ‘Kohli & Rahane, could watch these guys bat all day #masterclass #indvsnz’.Advertisement Unfortunately for him, that old tweet caught everyone’s eye three years later as the Indian skipper and his deputy, with a partnership of 178, piled on the runs on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test in Pune. Virat Kohli scored a sublime double hundred helping the hosts sail towards a commanding first-innings total on Friday. And Rahane, who was dismissed after scoring an important 59, went through the first session unscathed.India declared their innings on 601/5 and Kohli, playing his 50th test as the Indian skipper, remained unbeaten at 254. His magnificent innings was supported from the other end by Ravindra Jadeja (91) whose crucial cameo came handy after the hosts lost Rahane just after Lunch.South Africa meanwhile, have been unable to find an answer for India’s pace attack and lost 3 important wickets (including that of Bavuma’s) at the end of the days play.Poor old Bavuma, his wish has been finally granted. Literally!  Advertisementlast_img read more

Curley Censured over Complaints of Alleged Sexual Harassment

Posted on by

first_imgBy John Burton and Jay Cook |FREEHOLD — “Brash.” “Brusque.” “Independent.” “Bully.” These were some of the terms members of the public used last week to both show support for and to disparage embattled Monmouth County Freeholder John Curley as the remaining four members of the board voted to formally admonish the combative Curley for his alleged comments.The freeholders, all Republican, voted unanimously on Friday, Dec. 8 to officially censure fellow Republican Curley. In the authorized resolution, they accused him of taking actions that were “…reprehensible, offensive, unbecoming of an elected official, and compromise the integrity of Freeholder Curley’s office and the Board as a whole…”Curley did not appear at the hearing.The freeholders’ action, however, is far from the final word on this matter, as Curley’s lawyer vowed to continue the legal struggle. Last week Angelo Genova, the attorney representing Curley, had gone to federal court to file a civil rights violation suit.Angelo Genova, the attorney representing Freeholder John P. Curley, challenged the Monmouth County Freeholder board before action was taken censuring Curley amidst claims he used salacious claims to county employees.In addition, Genova successfully convinced the judge to block some of the freeholders’ actions, especially the release of findings from a five-month investigation conducted by an unnamed retired Superior Court judge and a restriction on Curley being able to return to work. The judge overturned some other prohibitions put in place in light of the report, such as preventing Curley from using county property or speaking with county employees which essentially kept him from his office and assistant.Genova told the freeholders last Friday he would look to expand his lawsuit on behalf of Curley, alleging the freeholders violated the judge’s order by incorporating portions of the report that is presumably under seal into their censure resolution.“It is my opinion,” Genova told the county officials, “you have violated public ethics law.”Genova went on to allege of the county officials’ action, “This is not due process. This is a charade.”Monmouth County Freeholders (L to R) Serena DiMaso, Thomas A. Arnone and Lillian G. Burry listened to numerous county residents defend John P. Curley at a special public meeting held in Freehold on Dec. 8.While not present, a defiant Curley offered a statement, distributed through his attorney, saying essentially that, serving as the only full-time freeholder in Monmouth County among the five, “I am proud to support all people regardless of race, creed, religion, political party affiliation, and to help all with just receiving a phone call or email.”Curley went on to criticize his Republican colleagues and county Republican chair (and county sheriff) Shaun Golden for their alleged lack of concern for their constituents, calling the action “a slap in the face to all of our residents.”“This is about basic respect and human dignity,” Freeholder Director Lillian Burry said of the Board of Chosen Freeholders’ steps of invoking censure, as well as ordering a review and updating of existing county guidelines for sexual harassment.“This type of behavior is just wrong and must not be tolerated,” Freeholder Thomas Arnone concluded.County residents supporting Freeholder John P. Curley donned stickers reading “I Stand With John” as a special public meeting aimed to censure Curley came to a close on Dec. 8 in Freehold.According to the resolution of censure read by the county’s special legal counsel Jonathan Testa, there are documented complaints about Curley’s alleged behavior that expose the freeholders to legal action as he “likely engaged in angry, vulgar outbursts causing female employees to flee their offices…”The resolution goes on to say Curley “made many other salacious and vulgar statements” to county employees. He’s accused of using sexually charged expletives; of saying, “I’ll show you a snake show, sit on my lap and I’ll show you a show”; telling one female, “Oh, that’s you I wanted to bend over and take”; to publicly calling male employees derogatory homosexual slurs, among other alleged examples. “If proven to be true,” the resolution stated, these complaints, “are disgusting, reprehensible, shocking, and should never be made by anyone, let alone a County Freeholder…”Since the investigation commenced, “more and more stories have emerged” regarding Curley’s alleged behavior, Burry acknowledged.The audience was full of members of the public, many of them wearing “I Stand With John” stickers, offering their support and willing to overlook these and other alleged transgressions, seeing Curley as a sort-of champion of the electorate and taxpayer.Spring Lake Heights resident James Martin showed solidarity with Curley. “What you said to me did not sound like worthy of censure, but maybe of mild criticism,” Martin said to the freeholders. “Over the years, I’ve seen good ones and I’ve seen bad ones,” Martin continued, “and I’d say John Curley is at the top of the list,” of the good ones. “He may be a little brusque, that’s true, but sometimes brusque is appropriate,” he said. “He’s done some very good things.”William Meyer is a Tinton Falls resident with a law practice in Red Bank and was a volunteer for Curley’s unsuccessful 2006 Red Bank mayoral campaign. He compared Curley to a plumber who uses salty, colorful language, but in the end, gets the job done. “I have seen him be brusque where he takes a passionate approach to something where at first glance you think he’s over the top,” Meyer said, “then only to research things and find out he was way ahead of the curve, absolutely correct and he had something we wish every politician had done back in the day.”Vincent LePore, a long-standing Long Branch political gadfly, said, “I urge Freeholder Curley to dump the corrupt party political system and run as an independent in 2018…and he will win.”On the other hand, Pamela Murphy, Freehold Borough, is a county employee, who had worked at one of the two nursing homes the county had formerly owned. “This is not a good person,” she said of Curley, calling him a “bully.”“I witnessed it,” she said. “He may have done good things but that doesn’t make him a good person.”“What is this? Alabama?” asked Mike Beson, Ocean, referencing the Roy Moore controversy. “Wake up, guys, wake up to the new world we live in.“You have to take care of every single employee,” he told the freeholders.Genova raised a number of legal points, arguing against the validity of the investigation and report and the freeholders’ actions. Genova said Curley does not intend to resign. “Mr. Curley plans to continue to serve the people of Monmouth County,” the lawyer said. And he plans on continuing his federal lawsuit, Genova added.This article was first published in the Dec. 14-21, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
