Patience, transplant pay off Year after kidney transplant, mother finds renewed energy • y EUCN M. FEUCCTTA FOHBBS NEWSPAPERS

Never losing hope, Audrey resumed her life on dialysis and her name was placed on the CADAVER LIST for a nonrclated donor. Strong-willed and determined, Audrey continued to live life to the fullest, maintaining her full-time job and caring for her family.

This is the story of Audrey Mullinnix, a wife, mother and long-time Cranford resident who was touched by the extended circle of life. Hospitalized 16 years ago for another condition, doctors discovered, quite by accident, that Audrey was suffering kidney failure, an acute condition compounded by severe anemia. Doctors predicted the young mother would require dialysis within five years. Almost to the day, her hemodialysis began, two times per week, 3Vi hours a session for 10 years. "I was able to have a nurse come into my home and administer the dialysis," she said. "After eight years, I needed the procedure three In nearby Kenilworth, Audrey's cousin Pat times a week.

"My blood count was so low, anyone else would have been unconscious. I didn't have an accident, but I fell asleep at (he wheel twice," she said. On March 12, 1995 all that changed. As the was conducting a meeting at St. Barnabas Medical Center, giving hope to others like herself, her call came through. "The call came from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital - they had a donor. My husband and I went right to the hospital. There was a man waiting who was also a candidate. As much as my heart felt lor him, I knew the kidney was mine. 1 hod waited so long," she said. The workups concluded the match, and Audrey's physical condition was acceptable. "I was in good health that day. Even the slightest problem, like a cold, could have prevented the transplant Everything felt right" she said. Surgery was conducted that night, and Audrey's new kidney started functioning four days later. "It was Bob's 50th birthday. It was a wonderful present." she said. One year after the transplant Audrey remains on a regimen of immunosuppressant drugs to maintain the organ function and prevent rejection. Although there have been some glitches along the way, high fevers, a rejection episode in December and a bout with pneumonia six weeks ago, Audrey feels reborn. "Being free from dialysis has made a big difference in my life," she said. "Things that are normally token for granted, like having an extra glass of water, or a soda if you want it are things that I can now do again."

Myths lead some to hesitate to donate There are many myths about organ donation and transplantation. What's fact? According to The New Jersey Organ and Tissue Sharing Network, a nationally recognized organ procurement organization, transplantation is now standard medical procedure and survival rates continue to rise. The one-year survival rate for kidney recipients is almost 9C percent; for heart recipients, over 82 percent, for pancreas recipients, almost 92 percent. Between 1988-93, one-year survival rates for lung recipients increased by almost 30 percent How can you donate? Signing a donor card and discussing your decision with family members can help assure your wishes will be carried

out The organ donor card is a legal document, and the donor card on your driver's license is also a valid document but family consent is required and will be requested at the time of death. Who gets a transplant? Organs are computermatched according to compatibility of donor and recipient tissues, determined by testing, waiting time and the medical need of the recipient According to The Sharing Network, there is no way to buy a place on the waiting list - it's a federal crime to buy or sell organs. Why donate? One individual can provide organs, bone and tissues for 75 or more people in need. There are more than 40,000 people across

the country on waiting lists for organ transplants - a name is added to the list every 20 minutes. In New Jersey alone, there are 800 residents waiting. "I waited an unusually long time," Audrey said. "The national average waiting time is now approximately two years, in New Jersey it't less. There's a better distribution of organs today." The Sharing Network is located at 150 Morris Ave., in Springfield. They can be reached at (800) 541-0075 or (201) 379-4535. Call The American Association of Kidney Patients at (800) 749AAKP.

The John Scudder House on East Broad Street will be one of four historic homes to be shown on the Woman's Club of WestfieJd's Spring House Tour Saturday, May 18. An English country manor and a southwestern contemporary will also be shown. The Scudders were one of the pioneer families of the Westfield area, and settled on a large tract of land running from Elmer Street up what is now East Broad Street and across the mountains. The house was built about 1790 by the fourth John Scudder. His father was the officer in charge during the 1782 trial of James Morgan, a British soldier accused of killing Parson James Caldwetl during the American Revolution. He was hung for his crimes on Gallows Hill in Westfield near the Scudder property. The house is an example of an early transitional farmhouse, based on an English prototype. The gabled roof is flanked by two chimneys. Inside, Federal motifs are used on the mantels and in the cupboard in the kitchen. The original cooking fireplace and beehive oven have been preserved. Two smaller rooms were opened up, probably in the early 1900s, to make what is now the living room. During the years, additions were made to the house, but the look of the period has been maintained. The interior of the house is furnished with hooked rugs and ftirniture that has been collected by the current owners in keeping with its colonial roots.

Damon Splvey lands after 8 high jump at last month's Highland Park Relays.

A warped choice of torchbearer Once again, Weekend Confidential is venturing off our own turf (sorry, Jeffrey Cohen) to aim a metaphorical shaving cream pie at one of our own writers. This time our target is young Art Swift, who wrote last week about Joan Jett's upcoming appearance in the area, We appreciate the towering contribution Ms. Jett has made to the rock music industry, what with her records consistently being at the top of the charts for the last decade or so - you may wish to pause here to mop up the dripping sarcasm - but surely there arc female vocalists who better deserve the title of "she who epitomizes the women's liberation movement" in American musi? Some of us would lay that laurel at the feet of such greats as Joan Baez, who was singing about women's liberation long before Confidential was bom. Or Grace Slick, who has consistently demonstrated that a woman can play and sing kick-butt rock and roll just as well as the guys. "Una Turner also personifies the essence of women's liberation in rock music Her rise from battered wife to rock icon epitomizes a principle of women's liberation - that

everyone, regardless of sex, has the right to believe in his or her own talents, and has therightto make the most of those talents in his or her search for excellence. Ms. Jett has merely followed admirably down a trail blazed long before by women of true substance, hard-earned dignity and greater talent.

cholson as the lead in the movie version will not be disappointed with Charles Wagner. This is the play's last weekend, though, so hurry on over.

Smart television?!?

The recent conclusion of TVs season-long saga, Murder One, left us with a bittersweet feeling, Confidential was riveted by the captivating performances and Confidential recently had an op- compelling storytelling which elportunitytosee One Flew Over the evated the drama beyond just conCuckoo's Nest at the Villagers The- cern over whodunnit But we're atre in Somerset and heartily rec- well aware that, unlike TV auteur Steven Bochco's other shows, MUT* ommends it Set in therecroom of a psychi- der One has struggled to find an audience all year. The concluding atric hospital, the actors playing the patients do a masterful job of hours showed good ratings, but it remains to be seen whether that's staying in character and holding enough to get it renewed on to their affliction throughout the evening.

Granted, especially the actress playing Daniel Benzali (the chrome-domed Nurse Ratched, who needs to add star of the show) isn't most Holmore authority to her portrayal. lywood executives' idea of a leadThose who remember Jack Ni- ing man, but he filled the moral

center role to a tee. Benzali made the character of defense attorney Ted Hofrman worthy of comparison to protagonists in classic detective novels, just as the quality of the show's writing measured up to such classics. So, in a TV universe populated with such junk as The Nanny and Melrose Ptace, we're hoping the network gods will smile on Murder One, a show that actually left you thinking after iu> closing scene each week.

Radio's in trouble One band that Confidential can't stop raving about is Trouble. "Hie band's been around since the early '80s but hasn't sold out to the people who program FM rock stations. Talk about great music. The latest album, called Plastic Green Head, can be described as a cross between the more psychedelic Beatles stuff and Black Sabbath, if you can believe that It's heavy but also melodic. Of course, you won't be hearing Trouble on the radio because New York and Philly stations are busy playing no-talent, watered-down punk bands like Green Day.

Freehold Raceway's chili cook-off in culinarv creations fly STEVE IMVMGE WeetendP/us writer

rom all across New Jersey, they've come to cook chili They are the chilihcads - legions of culinary fans dedicated to the precarious art of creating sometimes the simplest, but more often than not the most outrageous chili combinations imaginable. "We do it a little differently here," said Steven Wolf of Freehold Raceway, site of the 8th New Jersey State Chili Cookoff. "The International Chili Society events only allow pure Texas-style chili. No fillers like pasta or whatever. Here, you can include anything that you think makes good chili. 1 mean the whole thing is about having fun, not following some arbitrary rules." Wolf is organizing the 8th Annual New Jersey State Chili Cookoff Saturday at Freehold Raceway in Monmouth County, which will run in conjunction with the 37th Annual Dexter Cup Trot for 3-year-old colts. In order to open up the cook-off to extensive variety and foster a more creative atmosphere, Wolf decided not to try to make the cook-off an International Chili Societysanctioned event, "Actually, 1 think I've been banned,'1 he said. "But who's to say what makes a good chili." Because of that, cook-off chefs are not restricted to traditional chilis with pinto beans, ground beef and tomatoes. Oh no. Carrots, potatoes, green beans, peppers, peas, celery and even fruitier fare such as pineapples, raisins, apples and oranges accentuate the chili brews, Others opt for meatier recipes ranging from simple chicken and beef to fish, ostrich, even rattlesnake or other slippery reptile, amphibian and avian concoctions. "Last year, I made a batch of peanut butter and jelly chili with ostrich," said Steve Urcvitch, a cooking consultant and author of the book Sensuous Cooking. "Some people thought it was really good. I didn't win but it was still good and it was fun. That's the whole point of these things anyway. Some people get so nervous and afraid when they have to cook. TTie chili cook-offs, especially the Freehold (Raceway) one, are really for people to havefanand to get creative." Last year's winner whipped up a batch of Caribbean chili that included the Atlantic Conch. "It was our fust chili cook-off ever (last year)," said one of three winners from R&R Caribbean Chili, Ron Joho. "We had toyed with the idea for 2 while and just decided to do it. And the chipheads were coming around, wondering where we were from and how we did it." Joho described the event as a great activity and something he wished there was more of in New Jersey. "Everyone had to list the ingredients," Joho said. "And we did. The chili heads I think held out a little, not really

Urcvitch said the Freehold cook-off is among the best he's attended because of the diverse "carnival atmosphere" with the races going on while the cook-off is being run. • "Some people actually build buildings there, like one person laid down a mining shack to serve his chili from," Urevitch said. "It's really an event Something kind of unusual and different from what you'd expect." While obviously the chili is the most important element to the cook-off, the presentation is important as well. Some contestants construct elaborate displays and restaurantstyle booths, "That's what I look for," said Gene Hart, the former Voice of the Philadelphia Flyers' and a race and sports announcer in southern New Jersey for several years who will be a cook-off judge this year. "There's a lot more to it than just chili but how it's cooked, what's included, where the recipe came from, what

the display looks like. It's not just beans and meat. I had some chocolate chili that was really interesting a couple of year's ago. But I'll tell you, it takes a special kind of judge to be abletotaste 32 different kinds of chili." Hart said the Freehold cook-off has a "very homey" atmosphere reminiscent of old time state fairs, which should make the event particularly appealing to young families with children. "It's not glitzy and high tech and that's what I like about it. You couldn't have the same feel if you weretohold it at the Meadowlands because the raceway, with everything going on, just adds so muchtoit." Chili, also known as chilli, chile and chili con came, derives it's name, obviously, from the chile pepper or any member of the chile pepper family - a key ingredient in most recipes. The roots of the chili dish stretch back qver one hundred (Please turn to page 5)

The event also offers something for the kids, with clowns, pony rides and a car show on hand to entertain.

The 37th annual Dexter Cup Trot for 3year-old colts, worth $200,000, will be held in conjunction with the 8th Annual New Jersey State Chili Cookoff Saturday at the Freehold Raceway. The top four finishers from the May 3 $25,000 elimination races will advance to Saturday's finals. Since the race's inception in 1960, some of harness racing's greatest trotter's have won the Dexter Cup, which has the largest take home purse so far this year and attracts some of harness racing's best competitors. On Friday, the 37th Annual Lady Suf- • folk Trot for 3-year-old fillies isa wide open race. The Dexter trot is named after the world champion horse Dexter, sired by the great Hambletonian in 1858. Dexter didn't race until he was four and was gelded because of an ill temperament At the age of six, after being sold for $400 and being properly trained, he won 50 of 55 starts. After becoming ahousehold name, New York ledger publisher Robert Bonner bought Dexter for $33,000 and allowed

Gen. Ulysses S. Grant to ride him through Central Park while Grant campaigned for president in 1868, Grant asked Bonner for Dexter as a gift but was refused. Dexter died at the age of 30 in 1888 but lived on as the model for weathervanes, and as the namesake of an Iowa town and numerous companies, including the Dexter Washing Machine Company and the Dexter Hog Oiler Company. The Lady Suffolk race is named after the first great mare of harnessracingand immortalized by the song "The Old Grey Mare." She was foaled in 1833 and after being sold for $90, she pulled a meat and oyster wagon for a shop in Smithtown, Rhode Island. Lady Suffolk set a world record in 1854 at a race track in Hoboken. She was sold at the age of four, went into training and raced for the next 1G years - placing in 93 percent of her 162 races, including 89 wins, She died at the age of 23 without ever being foaled, Both races are sponsored by the Hambletonian Society.
