Township Adopts
Ordinances to
Minimize
Pollution of
Creeks and Rivers
By John Kneib, Mayor
Pennsauken Township
Each year, the New
Jersey Department of
Environmental
Protection enlists the
help of municipalities
throughout the state to remind residents
and businesses of the importance of protecting our waterways from pollution.
Pennsauken is strongly committed to
keeping all of our town’s creeks and rivers
pollution-free and encourages our residents and business owners to do what
they can to “think green.”
While many don’t have properties
that reside along the water’s edge, the
first thought you might have is, “I don’t
live near the water. How can I be adding
to pollution?” The truth is, you could be
negatively effecting the environment
every time it rains. The NJDEP has
determined that stormwater runoff is
the largest source of water pollution
impacting our creeks and rivers. Rainwater that flows down storm drains carries with it anything that is dropped,
dumped, blown, or swept into the street.
Items such as grass, leaves, oil, fertilizers,
pet droppings, and all types of trash and
litter will eventually be washed down a
storm drain and into one of the creeks
and rivers throughout the Township.

A Community United In “Paws For The Cause”
By Judith Kristen, AAP Columnist
There are lot of things I love about
Pennsauken and Merchantville. A source
of continual joy for me is how
we love, care for, and respect our dear
animal friends.
I take a morning or evening stroll and
see many of our local residents walking
their very happy animals, or as I glance
toward the window of one of our charming neighborhood homes, I often see a
sweet cat face staring out at me; sometimes I even get a “meow.”
Sadly, not enough people are like the
ones I see on a regular basis, and many an
unwanted pet is left behind, many are neglected and horribly abused. These animals
have never known the loving touch of a
human hand nor, sadly, have they ever
heard a gentle, tender, and kind word.
That’s where animal rescue comes in.
Our community has a shelter to help
those dear, furry friends awaiting their
happy, safe, and loving “furever home:”

For over seven years, Almost Home
has done an amazing job helping pets in
need. The shelter handles cases not only
from our neck of the woods here in
Pennsauken and Merchantville, but also
from Audubon, Audubon Park, Gloucester City, and Woodlyn. But in order to
further help the community, additional
funds are needed to enhance the shelter’s services.
So where do we begin? Where do we
start? What can we do to improve this
shelter now?

ALL AROUND PENNSAUKEN
Township Adopts Ordinances to Minimize Pollution of Creeks and Rivers continued from page 1
How many times have you seen
someone throw trash in the street or
throw something down an inlet? Or
found grass clippings strewn along the
sidewalk? Trash eventually ends up in a
creek or river.Trash, plastic bottles, plastic bags etc. are visible along the banks
of the Delaware River, Cooper River
and many smaller creeks throughout
the area. Community efforts, like our
Township’s cleanup of Tippin’s Pond,
continue to be organized to pick up the
debris around our local bodies of water,
as well as to clean up trash that has
been washed down the storm inlets.
It is also the pollutants that you don’t
necessarily see that also are both a hazard to the cleanliness of our bodies of
water and a danger to the marine life
that live there. Pet waste, grass, oil, lawn
fertilizer and chemicals all contribute to
the degradation of the water quality.
How Pennsauken Battles
Stormwater Pollution
The Township has adopted several
ordinances which are intended to stop
pollutants from going down the drain in
the first place. For example, Pennsauken
has had a litter ordinance on the books
for many years. It is illegal to dump or
drop litter of any kind on public or private property. Stormwater pollution
aside, not littering is simply essential for
the appearance of the Township and the
quality of life of its residents. Too often,
we see motorists dump an ashtray into
the street, or drop wrappers from the
fast food meal they just ate. Not only is
it disgusting, it’s against the law.
Since trash creates serious problems
when washed down an inlet, an ordinance was recently adopted that
requires dumpsters and other trash
containers to be covered at all times.
This not only stops trash from blowing
into the street, but also helps keeps liquids from leaching out and getting
washed into the storm sewers. We ask
Pennsauken businesses to be especially
diligent to keep their dumpsters covered and to avoid overfilling them with
too much trash.
The Township also requires pet owners to clean up after their pet. While
there’s an ordinance in place, this just
makes common sense. Pet waste is to
be properly disposed of in the trash. For
example, when walking your dog, make
sure you bring a plastic bag to clean up
after them. Your neighbors, and their
shoes, will appreciate the effort. In addition, Pennsauken strongly encourages
dog owners to use the dog park recently opened at Cooper and Collins Ave.
Receptacles are available there to dispose of pet waste.
A growing problem seems to be
geese and the mess they leave behind.
When washed into a waterway, their
droppings are a source of pollution.
And we all know that a flock of geese
can leave a lot of droppings behind.
While it’s difficult to relocate geese,
Pennsauken has adopted an ordinance
making it illegal to feed them on public
property.
Pennsauken’s ordinance on improperly disposing of waste materials prohibits anything other than rainwater
from going into an inlet. Dumping oil or
other unwanted household chemicals
into a storm inlet is not only dangerous
but also deadly to marine life. Please
take advantage of the hazardous waste
disposal days that the County has during the year. Many times, they occur
right in town, allowing you to quickly
and easily dispose of your hazardous
materials in a proper fashion.
Remember, pollutants can also be
grass, leaves and fertilizers. While some
think of these as “organic,” they are in
fact pollutants to clean water and a
danger to aquatic life. In addition, too
many leaves raked down a storm inlet
can also cause the sewer to clog and
possibly result in flooding. Only rainwater should go down a storm drain.
The ordinances mentioned are
intended to remind residents and businesses of the need to stop waterway
pollution at the source. In addition, the
NJDEP has directed municipalities to
start using the new eco-style inlets.
These have been appearing all over
town.The openings are purposely small
enough to stop large debris, such as
plastic bottles and soda cans, from
being washed into the storm sewer, but
allow rainwater to pass through.
In addition to the Township retrofitting the new eco-style inlets, businesses are also required by ordinance to

Pennsauken Offers Halloween Fun For The Whole Family
By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor
Throughout the month of October,
Pennsauken residents can find quite a
few ways to celebrate Halloween, a
uniquely American holiday. Here are a
few suggestions:
Historical Halloween
What better way get in the
Halloween mood than a visit to an
old house? On Saturday, Oct. 13 from
11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the historic Griffith
Morgan House in Pennsauken will host
a day of Halloween lore full of games,
activities and crafts for the kids, along
with seasonal refreshments and tours of
the circa 1693 home of the Morgan
family, early settlers of Pennsauken.
Hear the tale of the Jersey Devil, create
your own Halloween mask, join in the
games and activities, sample some cider
and treats, and also learn how our forefathers and foremothers spent their
Halloween seasons.
As a special treat, Freedom Center
for Wildlife will pay a visit with some
live animals appropriate to the
Halloween season, and talk about what
happens when nature and the human
world meet up unexpectedly.
Admission, as well as tours of the
house and museum, is free; nominal
fees may apply to some activities to
defray costs and support the mission of
Griffith Morgan House.
p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26 at the softball
field behind the Pennsauken Police
Administration Building at Route 130
and Bethel Avenue.
Live ghosts, ghouls, goblins and the
walking dead will greet you as you ride
around in a hay wagon pulled by a tractor. It’s scary fun for the whole family.
For more information, call the Department of Parks and Recreation at 856665-1000 x151.
For the Adults

doors and get candy, doesn’t mean you
can’t have a good time. Bobby Ray’s,

Looking To Trick Or Treat in Pennsauken?
Here’s What You Need To Know
The countdown to “Operation: Trick
or Treat” has begun. Kids are already
planning not just their Halloween costumes, but their Trick or Treat route as
well, making sure to hit the houses in
town that has the good stuff. To keep
Pennsauken’s boys and ghouls safe this
Halloween, the Township has an ordinance in place.
Pennsauken has a curfew in place
not just on Oct. 31, but the two days
prior to Halloween. During this period,
any minor under the age of 16, regardless of where they live, is not allowed
out on the streets of Pennsauken after
the hour of 8:00 p.m. unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.Your
buddy who just turned 18 isn’t going to
located on 6324 Westfield Ave. is hosting its annual Halloween Party on
Saturday, Oct. 27. In addition to drink
specials and a costume contest, musical
entertainment will be provided by
Doctor Shocker, a Pennsauken-based,

cut it. It has to be an adult who’s legally
responsible for you.
Trick or Treating is for kids, not
adults. It’s unlawful for anyone over the
age of 14 to go out Trick or Treating,
unless you’re acting as a chaperone.
And unfortunately, chaperones can’t
ask for any candy or treats. They have
to wait until they get home to help their
kids “sort” the candy. Also, there is no
Trick or Treating after 8:00 p.m.
If someone is caught breaking the
ordinance, the “trick” they’ll get can
vary from just a warning to a fine from
$200. And that’s kind of scary.
Here’s wishing you a fun, safe time celebrating a uniquely American holiday.

Pennsauken’s Image And Attitude Helps Outfit For Success
By Alan Gibson, AAP Contributor
“Someone’s future is hanging in your
closet.” That’s the motto of Image and
Attitude, a non-profit company right
here in Pennsauken that not only helps
men and women in transition, but also
at-risk youth.
Image and Attitude outfits their clients
with interview clothing.The organization
is also a trainer provider on the New
Jersey Eligible Training Provider List,
providing services through its One Stop
Career Center. Clients on public assistance do not pay for these services; all
other clients are charged a flat fee of $25.
And that fee goes a long way.
The client is “outfitted,” paired up
with a personal shopper who finds
appropriate clothing for them from
donations made to the company. Image
and Attitude doesn’t just take any old
thing either, so don’t try to send in those
Leisure Suits you haven’t worn since
1976. According to Assistant Executive
Director Mona Burch, “We expect
donations to be of value because we
value our customers.”
In addition, clients can get help with
Local Rotary Gives
Back To Community
“Service over self.” It’s the motto of
Rotary, a 1.2 million member organization that strives to make a world a better
place. In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, Rotary members are giving back
to local community as well as supporting
global causes, such as eradicating polio.
The Rotary Club of Pennsauken
Merchantville was founded in 1952 and
continues to serve the community
today, awarding scholarships to deserving college-bound students, providing
dictionaries to local grade schools, and
donating CPR dummies to the
Pennsauken EMS squad. They look to
build on 60 years of accomplishments
by involving more members of the
community in their charitable works.
“We’re looking to partner with other
community-focused individuals to do
even more good,” says Rotary Member
John Patane.
Rotary meets every Thursday at
12:15 p.m. at Bobby Ray's in
Pennsauken, with the exception of the
first Thursday of each month. On the
first Thursday, Rotary meets at 12:15
p.m. at the Blue Monkey Restaurant.
Please feel free to attend any meeting

Sheila Barret was helped by non-profit
Image and Attitude, and now works
for the organization.
interview skills and resume writing.
Helping their clients find work is the
company’s main goal.
Image and Attitude began 13 years
ago. Tammy Evans-Colquitt first began
the company to help women in need,
specializing in helping those moving
from welfare to work, assisting women
just released from incarceration, and
aiding victims of domestic violence.The
non-profit then began helping men in
those same circumstances. The company started off in a small office at 6500
Madison Ave, but grew quickly. In 2000,
Image and Attitude helped about 20
people a month. Evans Colquitt was
proud to point out that today they now
outfit about a hundred people monthly.
Sheila Barret is one of the people
helped by Image and Attitude. Barret,
who started the program on May 5, had
to leave her job to care for her ailing
mother. She ended up on public
assistance in the Community Work
Experience program; that was how she
found Image and Attitude. One of the
first things she did was to make a
“Dream Board,” a collage of inspirational sayings and pictures, which contains pictures of her three children.
According to Ms. Barret, “Just working
again has been amazing.” In the two
years she had been out of work, she had
begun to suffer from depression and
low self esteem. But with help from
Image and Attitude, she turned herself
around.“All it takes is one person to tell
you you’re worth it.” Barret now works
for Image and Attitude, eager to help
others in similar need.
Tony West found himself jobless after
a 23-year career in the Army National
Guard. He was sent to Image and
Attitude by the One Stop Career
Center in Camden. He is currently a
volunteer at Image and Attitude, “help-

ing to dress the guys.” He looks for work
every day, but continues to volunteer. “I
look forward to helping other people.”
Veronica Lopez spent four months
in the Community Work Experience
Program and was outfitted three times.
She now volunteers as a Personal
Shopper. Image and Attitude has given
her confidence and is “more comfortable with people now.” She learned that
looking good helps people feel good,
and is more confident than ever that
she will find a job.
According to CEO Evans-Colquitt,
“We don’t want to be the best kept
secret in town,” and are always looking
for donations of business clothing in
good condition. They also need volunteers, especially professionals who can
help clients sharpen their skills.
Image and Attitude will host their
annual benefit event at The Mansion
on Main Street in Voorhees on Oct.
25 from 5-9 p.m. The event will be a
dinner and auction, as well as a
fashion presentation. For more information or to make a donation, visit

THE SCHOOL BELL RANG FOR STUDENTS TO BEGIN
AN EXCITING NEW SCHOOL YEAR!
Overcast skies did not put a damper on the excitement of the 5,600 students as they arrived at their assigned school to begin the 2012-2013 school year on Wednesday, Sept. 5. Students came prepared to learn,
dressed in their appropriate school uniforms. After a fun-filled summer, this will be a year that is full of dreams, aspirations, and goals for many students. Administration, teachers, and staff are prepared to help
these students fulfill their expectations during the 2012-2013 school year.
Students eagerly arrive to Delair School on their first day of
classes.
For some students, this was their first time riding a school bus.
The crossing guard at Delair is helpful to parents and students
as they cross the street.
These happy faces say it all as students prepare for reading at
Delair School.
Mrs. Pacific helps students find their correct teacher’s line at
Delair School on the first day of classes.

Burling And Delair Schools Hold
Student Assemblies
On Friday, Sept. 7, students and staff
of Burling and Delair Schools reported
to the multi-purpose room to learn
more about the procedures of their
school.
Principal Slater, along with Guidance
Counselor Sanchez, was on hand to discuss school rules and the new code of
conduct at both schools for all students,
kindergarten through fourth grade.
Students were also reminded of
lunch and recess policies. They also
learned more about the uniform program, and were informed that hoodies
were not allowed to be worn in school.
Students were told that they may wear
blue sweaters over their uniform shirt
when the weather gets colder.
Guidance Counselor Mrs. Sanchez
spoke to the children about values and
ways to get along with each other. She
emphasized that the school is a “No
Bullying Zone” and that bullying will
not be tolerated.
The students were active participants
in this assembly, and it was a wonderful
way to get the school year off to a good
start.
Pennsauken High School is proud to announce
the achievement of one of their alumni.
Alisa Ratliff, a 2009 PHS graduate,
recently became a member of the
National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
The award was presented for her commitment to the ideals of scholarship,
leadership and service.
Ratliff is currently a student at
Morgan State University.
Pennsauken Public Schools is proud
of Alisa and her accomplishments and
wish her much success in her career.
Congratulations!

Pennsauken Schools Soaring To New Heights
By Marilyn Martinez
Superintendent of Schools,
Pennsauken Township
I am pleased to announce
that the 2012-2013 school year got off to
an exhilarating start on Sept. 5 for students, faculty, and staff of the
Pennsauken School District.
Our district’s theme for this school
year is “Soaring to New Heights.”
Teachers and parents will work together to help the children achieve greatness in academic performance.
One way we plan on accomplishing
this goal is to improve reading. We’ve
instituted a reading campaign, where
students will participate in daily reading
assignments, working along with their
parents. It is often found that a student’s
fall test score will show a drop in grade
level performance from their spring
exiting score. Through our successful
summer reading program and our new
reading campaign, we are certain that
the results will show an increase in student reading levels. Reading is the gateway to all learning. The ultimate goal of
our reading campaign is to make students better readers and create a strategy that will promote reading among
parents and children.
Every fall, a student’s individual
reading levels is assessed in the classroom by teachers utilizing the DRA2
assessment tool and Scantron testing. If
students did not read during the summer, their reading levels may have
dropped from the level they had
attained in June. Those students will
need to commit at least thirty minutes
of reading every night to catch up and
move forward.
Students who read twenty minutes
per day during the summer as part of
Pennsauken’s reading program will
probably have maintained their June
reading levels or even improved. Parents
will be notified of the reading test results.
We will all work to increase those levels;
our goal is to have everyone reading on
or above grade level by the end of the
year. One of the most important things
you can do as a parent is to make sure
your child reads or is read to for thirty
minutes or more every night.
Genesis, our new student information system, is up and running. The
Genesis system has taken the place of
Starbase and will provide parents
access to their child’s attendance and
grade book. This system affords us
many new opportunities to help keep
parents informed of their children’s
progress from home via the internet.
Parents’ access to the information
system will be through an internet connection where an individual’s e-mail
address will become their user name.
Longfellow School PTA News
Students and teachers aren’t the only
ones excited for the start of a new
school year; the Longfellow Elementary School PTA is geared up and
excited for the 2012- 2013 school year
as well.
This year, its PTA is looking forward
to implementing many events, including some events available at bigger
schools, as well as new, original ideas.
Family-oriented events will be a top
priority this year for the organization,
which is looking to add family game
and movie nights.
The book fairs are also a big hit with
students. This year, the PTA looks to
hold book fairs in the fall and spring.
The book fairs are an important program, as they get the students excited
about reading both inside and outside
of the classroom.
The heavy favorites, however, are the
Fall Festival and Career Days. On these
days, students get to interact with each
other, as well as Longfellow parents,
and this excites them.
Longfellow’s PTA will also look to
host an event at a local restaurant once a

For this reason, it is necessary that parents keep the school updated about

The Board of Education has recently adopted a student code of conduct
for all Pennsauken students. The purpose of the code of conduct is to support the creation of a safe learning
environment for all members of the
school community; to provide clear and
explicit expectations for social behaviors within all school settings; to specify
guidelines for teaching and encouraging social skills necessary for meeting
District behavioral expectations; and to
describe explicit methods of corrective
instruction and consequences for
behavioral offenses.
Parents must read the student code
of conduct with their children; both parent and student must sign the student
pledge and return it to their classroom
teacher, acknowledging that they have
read and understood it and will follow
the rules and regulations as stated.
Teachers, staff, and students are participating in the Pennsauken Neighbors

profitable; and like other fundraisers, are
essential for the PTA to raise money.
Seasonal festivals, educational
assembly programs, and the fourth

important.

Keeping parents and community
members informed of Longfellow’s
events is a top priority to president,
Lillian Torres, who welcomes all extra
volunteers and members. This year,
she is hoping to get the Longfellow
community involved in as many ways
possible.
“The more parent involvement, the
better,” says Torres. “A better relationship between the PTA and its community means a better environment for
the children.”

Giselle Cotes
BW:Which sport do you like the most?
G: Lacrosse. You get a lot of one-onone situations and I like the challenge
of trying to get past the defender. I like
the rush you feel when you score a goal,
or when you crossover on an opponent
and score. I love playing defense and
the teamwork involved.
BW: You were named the PHS female
Athlete of the Year last year and you’re
a two sport all-star. Has all of that attention changed you?
G:I was really surprised to win the PHS
award. I don’t believe I’ve changed;
more mature maybe. It makes me want
to strive for higher accomplishments
like All South Jersey.
BW: What are the prospects for this
year’s Field Hockey team?
G: We are excited about becoming
members of a new league. The feeling
was that the BC was a weaker league
than the Olympic, so we might have not
trained as hard this summer as we
should have. We are working hard to
improve.
BW: How do you prepare in the summer for the fall season?
G: I went to the Rutgers Field Hockey
camp last summer and learned a lot.
This summer, I concentrated on
Lacrosse by playing in the South Jersey
Doubles and played in high profile
tournaments in Maryland and
Pennsylvania.
BW: You are a B student and involved
in several clubs. How do you manage
your time?
G: I’m president of the Varsity Club
and a member of the French and Leo
Clubs. Sometimes it is hard to come up
with the energy to study and do homework at night after a long day and after
practicing for two hours. I just accept
the fact that if I want to achieve my
goals, I must work hard and be determined.
BW: What are your future plans?
G: I want to play Lacrosse in college. I’d
like to study nursing with a minor in
business.
BW: Any thoughts for the young girls
of Pennsauken?
G: Don’t be afraid to dream. Believe in
yourself and be determined.

GRAYMATTERS A Very Scary Thought In Time For Halloween
By Judith Kristen
AAP Columnist
Well, here we are, another
Halloween coming up and I guess
you’re expecting me to write about
something really scary.
So, who am I to disappoint the nicest
readers in all of Southern New Jersey?
Here we go.
…I’m considering getting a tattoo.
I told you it would be scary.
Now I didn’t just hit age sixty-four
and then immediately decide on a per-
manent inking. I’ve been thinking
about this since 1965.
Tattoos aren’t only for bikers and
sailors on shore leave. My god-daughter, Mallory, a doctoral candidate at
UNLV, had a very groovy one placed
around her ankle last year. My dear

school friend, Yvonne, worked for the
Peace Corp and had a lovely “world”
tattooed above her wrist bone. Even
my darling husband Andrew sports
three masterpieces: one on each shoulder and then a really superb upper arm
band tattoo.
Mallory’s mom, my dear friend, the
late, great Monti McDonald and I had
plans from the late 70s all the way
through the early parts of the new century to have ourselves inked, but we
could never decide on what we wanted.
We got temporary “henna” tattoos to
see if we liked it. Before the old one was
gone, we were already designing the
next one… and the next one… and the
next one.
The closest I came to actually being
tattooed was back in the early 80s as I sat
at Eddie’s Tattoo Parlor over in Philly
and watched my friend Carole, get a
beautiful long stemmed yellow rose
placed right there on her chest above her
heart near some very healthy cleavage.
Eddie had decided that a red rose
would be perfect for me and just as I
agreed and was about to park myself in
his “drawing chair” a vision flashed
across my mind. “Sure,” I thought to
myself, “that rose will look awesome
now, but just imagine what it’ll look like
when gravity starts to play those nasty
little tricks on my female attributes!” I
guess what I was saying to myself was…
just how long would the stem on that
red rose be when I turned 70? 75? 80?
Know what I mean?
I shuddered at the mere thought of it.
And, when Carole and I left Eddie’s,
only one of us was seeing the world, and
all its gravity, through “rose-colored”
glasses. But that was just fine by me.
Fast forward thirty plus years and
you may ask why that old thought even
crosses my mind these days. Well, I’m
an out and about neighborhood gal and
every day I either walk or drive by The
Yellow Rose Tattoo parlor on Park
Ave. The very same shop where my
Mallory got her spicy ankle tattoo;
where our friends Ron, John, and Mary,
and many other people are now finding
it quite hip, cool, romantic, and even
fashionable to be inked.
Vinnie, Rose’s owner, is a very nice
man, and a mega-talented artist who
could draw the Sistine Chapel on your
back if you could sit there long enough.
He smiles as I walk by, and he never tries
to talk me into anything; frankly, I can get
into enough trouble all on my own.
So, will it happen?
Who knows… but at this writing, I’m
inclined to say YES! And I think I just
might get it done right before Halloween.
And what will it be? I’m not sure, but
I know it’ll be very cool and very groovy.
And I promise you, if you’d like to have
a look at it, I’ll certainly be proud to
show you. But don’t worry; it will be
inked in a discreet and formal location.
Life is scary enough.
Happy Halloween!

WAGSWORLD
By Bob Wagner, AAP
Columnist
Last weekend, I
was lounging on my sister’s very large
porch, trying to nap in a hammock. A
delightful breeze was blowing in from
the beach, and the sun was behind the
houses. I can usually drift right off to
dreamland in seconds, but the kids were
out in force.
My nephew’s 5-year-old son was
bouncing a ball, trying to find someone
to have a catch. The older kids were
caught up in electronic games, and the
younger ones just can’t catch or throw
well. I was the only available source of
entertainment, so the nap was not to be.
It occurred to me that young
Matthew was unaware of the value of
front steps to a ball player. I introduced
Sunday Dinner At Grandmom’s Revisited
him to the concept of throw and catch
that I learned on the sidewalks of 44th
St. as a youngster.
While waiting for friends to show up
to play ball, almost every young man on
the block would toss a pimple ball, a
pink bouncer, or a tennis ball off the
steps. The exercise taught good hand
and eye coordination, and an actual
street game was concocted for two
players from this exercise. One player
threw the ball onto the steps; the other
stood in the street and caught the ball.
If the ball was missed or dropped, it was
a hit. Caught, it became an out. If the
ball was thrown so it hit the very edge
of the steps, it would launch across the
street and become a homer.
The concrete steps, or stoop, as
Grandmom Ethel called them, were
perfectly designed for this game. When
the ball was thrown wrong, and
bounced against the front door of the
house enough times, the game was
moved up or down the street, after
angry voices from inside warned kids of
impending beatings for denting the
new screen door.
Of course, the thrown ball game
morphed into other street games, when
more kids were involved. Wire ball,
hand ball, and block ball were the
norm. Older kids with access to tools
started playing half ball, which required
a broom handle bat, and a pimple ball,
cut in half.
When all the balls went missing, usually on neighbors’ roofs, hose ball was
invented. This game required pieces of
4 inch garden hose and the prerequisite
broom handle. The hose pieces were
pitched, and the taped broom handle

retrofit storm inlets whenever a parking
lot needs to be repaved or seal coating
of a parking area is done.
Pennsauken Township’s Highway
Department inspects inlets every year
and cleans those blocked by debris.
However, with over 1,100 inlets
throughout the township, the Highway
Department cannot always get to them
immediately. Cleaning off a storm inlet
and placing the debris in a trash con-
tainer is a way that Pennsauken residents can help keep the environment
clean. This is particularly important in
neighborhoods that are prone to street
flooding in a heavy rain.
The ordinances discussed in this article can be found on our Township website (www.twp.pennsauken.nj.us) in the
Government/Codebook section. Specific
requirements are included in Chapters
101, Animals; Chapter 197, Litter;
Chapter 256, Sewers and Drainage
Systems; and Chapter 269, Solid Waste.
While it is important to be aware of the
ordinances that the Township has
adopted to protect our waterways, it is
really up to each one of us to take
responsibility for keeping the environment clean. Everyone, whether they are
a longtime resident, or a brand new
business owner moving into town, has
the ability to help in some small way.
batter either hit the hose, or was left a
good welt when the hose hit him.
These were pretty much city games,
played in the street, or in an empty lot
or school yard. Traffic in the 50’s and
60’s was thankfully thin, with fewer
parked cars.
Little Matthew was quickly caught
up in the tossing on the step game, until
Uncle Billy and his dad Eric came out.
We shamelessly bribed little Matt out
of the ball with Grandmom’s brownies,
and a serious game of step ball broke
out. We cursed the traffic that stopped
play, and the parking cars that took up

valuable real estate from our street
field. Then Uncle Billy split the ball on
a hard throw off the step edge. I ran to
the back of the house to borrow Aunt
Chris’s broom handle, and Eric went
looking for electrical tape for the bat.
It all came to a screeching halt when
the dinner call went out; Aunt Chris
caught me with her good broom, and
Grandmom confiscated the ball.
Now, a new generation of kids
knows a way to play a game without
batteries. Matt just has to learn how to
keep the ball away from the big kids.

Did Pennsauken Receive A Visit From A Jersey Legend?

or crossing over rooftops. The strange
creature was given names appropriate
to its mystery and odd appearance:
“What Is It,” “Freak,” Flying Hoof,”
“Hoodle Hoodle Bird,”“Jabberwock,”
“Leeds’ Devil,” and “Jersey Devil.”
On Jan. 19, a paperhanger in
Gloucester City described the creature
he saw as “three feet six inches in
height, (it) had wings about two feet
long, a head on the order of a collie
dog, but the appearance of a horse, long
neck and legs like a crane.” Tracks
were found not only in the yard, but
also on the roof of the shed.
A few days later, it was reported that
tracks of the strange creature had been
found in Camden and Merchantville,
and a search party was scouring
Haddonfield, trying to track the
Jabberwock. In Merchantville, the
tracks were discovered by Doctor J.D.
Lawrence; Professor Frey, a school
principal; and the chief clerk of the post
office. A reporter from the Camden
Post Telegraph stated he had seen
these tracks with his own eyes and that
they were those of a hooved biped. He
also reported that the citizens who
made the reports were reputable and
“never touch a drop.” William
McAllister of Walnut Avenue also
reported finding the strange tracks
near his chicken house.
While a number of locals offered theories to debunk the presence of a
“devil,” even more extravagant reports
soon followed. In Camden, a woman on
Mt. Ephraim Avenue reported
finding the “mysterious Jabberwock”
attacking her dog and she chased it off
with a broom. Policemen responding
reportedly used electric flash lights to
discover the strange beast at the top of a
nearby water standpipe and they emptied their revolvers before it escaped.
The winged demon was also reported to have paced a trolley near Haddon

Heights for 200 yards before the hiss of
the air brakes scared it off, much to the
relief of passengers and the conductor.
Another report had the beast visiting
Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Moorestown
and scaring a local fisherman.
Gathering momentum, the reports
began to take a more fanciful turn
when a Camden dentist claimed to
have found the creature, suffering from
an apparent bad tooth, waiting at his
office only to be frightened off by the
sight of the tools of dentistry. Similarly,
a blacksmith in Camden claimed the
“devil” came to him to repair a bad
shoe but was frightened off before he
could begin. A Camden patrolman
reported finding an egg of the “mulehoofed devil bird,” which bore a resemblance to a marshmallow.
At Collins and Pancoast Hall in
Merchantville, it was claimed that the
creature had been captured in a nearby
lot after a fierce struggle and was to be
presented as an entertainment. These
impresarios added to the list of names
given the beast: “Foolabunch,”“Liealot,”
and “Bughousebipedicus.”
More accounts came in that the creature was captured or destroyed. One
Camden stalwart reported that he had
captured the creature in a strong wood-

Pennsauken Police Receive Grants To Battle Drunk Driving
During the first eight months of
2012, Pennsauken Police arrested 293
individuals for driving while intoxicated. No other police department in
South Jersey made as many arrests during this period of time. Now, the
Pennsauken Police Department can do
even more to keep the Township safe
from drunk drivers, thanks to a grant
from the New Jersey Division of
Highway Traffic Safety.
The Pennsauken Police will receive
$35,032 to combat drunk driving, the
second highest amount given during
the upcoming grant period. Grant
amounts were determined based on an
agency’s past productivity of arrests
made for driving under the influence.

In addition, the Pennsauken Police
Department utilized a separate grant to
combat drunk driving from Aug. 17 to
Sept. 3 of this year. During this two week
period, members of the Pennsauken
Police Department arrested 19 drivers
for driving while intoxicated.
The majority of the drunk driving
arrests within the Pennsauken Police
Department are made by officers
assigned to the traffic division.
Patrolmen Jospeh Kuchmek, Raymond

Food Adventures in Pennsauken: 45th Street Pub
By Rachael Rivera, AAP Columnist
The 45th Street Pub, or “The FourFive,” as locals refer to it, opened their
doors in 2003 and will be celebrating
their 9-year anniversary this month. For
my visit to the Four-Five, located on
2545 45th St. along Route 130, I
brought along fellow foodie, Jose
Rivera, to give me a second opinion on
things; he was just as pleased as I was.
The restaurant crowd on a Tuesday
afternoon was constant and happy. You
are greeted right at the front door by a
smiling waitress, who takes you to your
seat. The restaurant is clean and welcoming, with modern, yet appropriate
music tuned into the background, while
eleven televisions mounted throughout
the restaurant call to the senses of any
sports fan.
Seating ranges from centrally placed
high top tables and plenty of bar seats,
to more intimate booths for a date
night or a nice family meal.
Once at the table, our server Pamela
went right into getting us beverages and
offered up a few awesome dishes. She
recommended the stuffed pepper soup;
she made it sound so tasty that we
decided to begin our meal with a serving. Boy, was she right.Though the pres-

own in taste, leaving you with the feeling that you really just ate a stuffed pepper. Pam smiled the whole time and
was there when we needed her. When
you want to enjoy a meal, your service
is where it begins; the Four-Five definitely accommodates, making you feel
like you’re their number one priority.
The menu is always a big deal when
you go out to eat. You don’t want to sit
at the table, read through an entire
book, and then pick only one thing
from a hundred. But don’t be fooled by
the simplicity of the menu visually. The
Four-Five has a menu with the perfect
amount of dishes. Jose and I found it
easy to find favorites, prices, and ingredients. Price ranges for this place are
definitely economy-friendly. You can
get seafood dishes packed with flavor
for under twenty bucks, and they
always include a soup or salad.
The 45th Street Pub just began its fall
burger menu; you can order a traditional bacon cheeseburger, or go for the
obscure and order a Farmer John that
comes with fries and a fried egg. We
also tried the Texas burger, which is just
like eating BBQ. The smoky flavor of
the BBQ sauce and the crunchy onion
ring, jack and cheddar cheese and
crispy bacon it comes topped with complement each other very well. These
burgers are cooked any way you like; I
recommend medium. In addition, you
aren’t dealing with greasy hands and
drippy, greasy food while you eat. All of
their burgers come with fries and a
pickle, and you can substitute your beef
burger for a chicken burger at no extra
charge.
When the shrimp tortellini was
brought to the table, the first thing Jose
noted was just how colorful and delicious it looked. You get a heaping portion of tortellini in a gorgeous blush
sauce, topped with a healthy portion of
regular-sized shrimp, which is then garnished with more cheese on top. This
dish is rich, creamy, and so flavorful; you

may have to fight not to try fitting the
whole dish in your mouth. The presentation is stylish and fun.
The shrimp and steak dish, which is
the Four-Five’s take on surf and turf, is
a must. It needs no sauces or seasonings, and the huge breaded shrimp you
get are, in Jose’s own words, “the best
fried shrimp I’ve ever had anywhere.”
The 10-ounce Delmonico steak only
adds to the enjoyment, since it is cooked
to buttery perfection and served with
steamed veggies and a baked potato.

This dish was voted our favorite during
the visit, and is the cheapest version of
surf and turf around.

PEOPLEINTHENEWS Pennsauken Native Helps NASA Explore The Universe
By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor
Mars. The Red Planet. At its closest
distance to the Earth, you’d have to
travel 33.9 million miles to get there.
But to find the beginnings of one of the
creative minds behind NASA’s exploration of Mars, you don’t even need to
leave town.
Pennsauken native Lorraine Fesq
has always looked to the stars, with a
true passion for exploring the cosmos
ignited by one giant leap for mankind.
“I’ve always had an interest in exploring space,” explained Fesq. “Ever since
Armstrong set foot on the moon, I wanted to be a part of the space program.”
With an undergraduate degree in
Mathematics from Rutgers-New
Brunswick, a graduate degree in
Computer Science from UCLA, and
then doctorate in Computer Science
and Astronomy with a specialization in
Artificial Intelligence from UCLA,
Fesq has worked in the aerospace “hot

spots” across the country, landing as
one of the principal engineers in the
Software Systems and Operations
Engineering Section of NASA’s Jet
Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in
Pasadena, CA, the lead U.S. center for
robotic exploration of the solar system.
Fesq worked on MSL eight months
prior to launch. Lorraine’s focus was on
the mission’s fault protection system,
software that handles problems as they
occur in space.
“If something breaks or something
goes wrong, we can’t go out and fix it,”
says Fesq.“It has to have enough smarts
on board to know what to do in the
event that something goes wrong. You
don’t want to lose the whole mission
because one tiny piece broke.”
Landing on Mars is a risky proposition.According to Fesq, many countries
around the world have tried to land on
Mars; out of all of these attempts, twothirds end in failure. “You can never
really test these things in the environment in which they’ll operate. It’s
always a bit of the crap shoot. Landing
on Mars is very hard.”
The Mars Rover’s picture perfect
landing, which can be seen in high-resolution video on the internet, was made
possible, in part to Fesq’s work in fault
protection.
“Just by designing that portion of the
software, we make the system more

helped prep the Mars Science
Laboratory for its mission to land the
space rover Curiosity on the surface
of the Red Planet.
robust,” explains Fesq. “We don’t have
to execute the fault protection. By
going through the exercise of thinking
what could go wrong we make the
whole system more resilient to fault.”
Currently, Lorraine is literally writing
the book on fault protection for NASA,
so that other engineers can better
design software systems for their missions. She also still keeps in touch from
friends from her days at Pennsauken
High School. In fact, at the time of this
interview, Fesq just learned about
Lacey Smith and Michelle Han, the two
seniors at PHS who designed an original experiment that will be tested on
the International Space Station later
this fall. “I’m very excited to see
Pennsauken High School girls making
a new path in the space world.”
Just like a little girl inspired by one
small step.

PUBLICWORKS The Importance of Recycling Your Leaves
By Bernie Kofoet, Public
Works Superintendent
Hello friends. I am on vacation at the
time this article is due so I’ve invited
Renee Cirillo, a member of the
Township Green Team to be a guest
contributor this month. See you in
November!
Recycle Your Leaves
Signs of fall are here. Summer tans
are fading. The football season has started.The kids are back at school.And you
may have noticed the leaves have started to change from green to shades of
red, yellow, and orange.The brilliant colors of autumn leaves are beautiful, but
their beauty is short lived. The leaves
quickly fall from the trees, turning
brown and making a mess on our lawns.
Some even find their way indoors. Soon
the trees will begin to shed their leaves,
starting the yearly tasks of leaf blowing
and raking of leaves.
One way to deal with the fallen leaves
is by creating backyard compost.
Composting is good for both the environment and the economy. A backyard
compost keeps the Township’s waste disposal costs down. Also, a compost provides a free resource for one to use in
flower or vegetable gardens in the spring.
Creating a backyard compost is easy!
Start by simply piling the leaves in a suitable area, away from buildings and near
a water source. Then, moisten the leaves
to kick start decomposition. All one has
to remember to do is turn over the pile
of leaves periodically. Nature does the
rest of the work for you! Add grass clippings, fruit and vegetable scraps to your
compost all year long.
If backyard composting is not for you,
then you can bag the leaves and place
them out every Wednesday for collection by Waste Management. Residents
are strongly encouraged to bag their
leaves, as opposed to leaving free-standing piles curbside to prevent them from
blowing away.
Bags can be either paper or plastic;
paper being the eco-friendly choice.You
may place as many bags as you like out
for collection. However, please keep the
weight of the bags under fifty pounds.
And remember, leaves should never be
disposed of down storm sewers or
burned. Please note that leaves are not
accepted at New Jersey landfills.
Depending on how fast leaves fall,
Pennsauken Public Works will begin the
annual process of clearing the streets of
accumulated leaves in late October or
early November.The leaves collected by
the Public Works Department are taken
to the Pennsauken Leaf Compost
Facility, located on Park Ave. off of
Haddonfield Rd. This facility is an
approved New Jersey Department of
Environmental Protection compositing
site and follows specific state guidelines.
Once the leaves are on site, the
process of converting them into useful
compost begins. The conversion process
takes four to six months. At the end of
the process, the compost is placed at the
Pennsauken Pool site on River Rd. for
residents to pick up for use in their
spring gardens.
TALKIN’ TRASH
THERE ARE NO TRASH COLLECTION HOLIDAYS DURING OCTOBER.
Reminder: The next Special Waste Collection Day will be Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Camden County
Public Works Complex, 2311 Egg Harbor Rd., Lindenwold. The hours for this event are 8:30 a.m. to
3:00 p.m. There will also be an Electronic Recycling Collection event on Saturday, Oct. 27 at the
same location. The hours for that event are 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The benefits composting can be seen
firsthand at the Pennsauken Community Garden, located behind the
Pennsauken Free Public Library at 5506
N. Crescent Blvd. The community garden has come to life in the past year,
thanks in part to the abundant supply of
community compost made from leaf
collection in 2011.
In February, soil-like compost from
the Pennsauken community compost
pile was tested by Rutgers Soil Testing
Laboratory to ensure it was safe to use
in the community garden. The compost
was tested for levels of phosphorus,
potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper,

Plant Bulbs In The Fall For A Show Next Spring
By Kathleen Harvey
Owner, Plant Artistry, LLC
The crisp autumn air ignites a longing to stroll outside, kick up leaves, and
absorb the breathtaking colors of the
trees as they retreat into winter dormancy. Fall is also the time to plant
hardy spring-blooming bulbs, which
come in all colors, shapes, and sizes to
herald the coming of next spring.
The term ‘bulb’ is used loosely here;
what is commonly referred to as bulbs
may in fact be corms, tubers, tuberous
rooted plants, or plants grown from rhi-
zomes. Each of these has differing
anatomies, but they all have things in
common that are essential for survival;
stored nutrients and plant tissue that
produce leaves and flowers, and for purposes of this article, are winter hardy.
Each “bulb” gathers food during the
summer growing season that is stored
over the winter, providing strength to
flower the following spring. It’s very
important not to tie up, mow, or otherwise remove leaves from bulbs that
have finished their blooming until the
leaves start to turn yellow or brown.
Leaves provide food to regrow the
bulbs so they have strength to bloom
again the following season. Bulbs purchased and planted now will have sufficient food to bloom next spring.To continue the show yearly, feed bulbs with a
bit of bone meal when they are planted,
again in the spring as the leaves emerge;
then dig and divide them every few
years to rejuvenate them and continue
the show.
Bulbs can be planted now until the
ground freezes. Most spring-blooming
bulbs require a winter dormancy period

of ten to thirteen weeks to trigger good
blossoming next spring. Most bulbs perform best when planted at a depth
twice their height. For example, a one
inch crocus bulb should be covered
with two inches of soil. Transplanting
trowels and bulb planters have depth
markings on them to make planting
easier.
Bulbs can be breathtaking covering a
hillside, or in large groups in flower
beds. Bulbs announce the coming of
spring, and if several types are planted,
can extend blooming season into May.
Snowdrops are one of the very first to
poke through the ground, as soon as the
top layer of ground thaws. I love having
their delicate white flowers dangle in
my flower beds near the front door, as
they are a reminder that winter is losing
its grip. Next up are crocuses, followed
by muscari, hyacinths with their wonderful fragrance, daffodils, and finally,
tulips. If your yard is shared with local
wild life, tulips may not be a good
choice, as they are a tasty treat for squirrels and rabbits. However, jonquils and
daffodils are all poisonous; these plants
will be left alone to bloom year after
year.
One of the advantages of planting
several types of bulbs is they can be
planted in groups for a succession of
color, shape, and texture bursting from
the ground, next to spring blooming
trees and shrubs, and in mixed borders.
So get outside, enjoy the crisp autumn
air, and plant some bulbs as a present to
you and your family to enjoy next
spring.
Celebrate Life,
Embrace Faith.

A Community United In “Paws For The Cause”

teach humane education in our local
schools were so touched by the animals’ stories that the children created
donation boxes, filled them with much
needed items, and then donated those
boxes to Almost Home for its furry residents. A very good start, I’d say!
One of my books, “Mookie and the
Rescued Cat,” also donates part of its
royalties to Almost Home. Proceeds
from that book so far have made it possible for the installation of a beautiful
ceramic tiled floor in the Shelter’s waiting area, making it far more sanitary
and much easier to clean and maintain.
Now I have to ask you, the reader, do
you have any other ideas to help us? A
Ladies Club, a Scouting organization, a
church group, a book club, your own
local business with a compassion-based
project in mind? Donations from
groups such as this and from private
individuals are imperative; they help
pay for immediate expenses, including
medical care, rabies shots, kennel cough
vaccinations, distemper shots, worming
medications, feline AIDS testing and
Leukemia testing, micro-chipping, and
the treatment of flea control.
Items that are also an everyday need
are: food, litter, trash bags, facecloths,
paper towels, blankets, towels, flea treatments, dog beds, and toys and treats.
Sometimes toys are overlooked and
thought of as frivolous in a “rescue” situation, but because far too many animals come into a shelter from dreadful
situations and have to be socialized, the
very best way to accomplish that is
through play, and toys are a wonderful
way to make that possible.
I am very proud to say that of this
writing, here in the October issue of All
Around Pennsauken, much has already
started to happen here to give a much
needed boost to help Almost Home
Animal Shelter.
On Sept. 15, McFarlan’s Market
hosted a fabulous fundraiser for
Almost Home. The shelter brought
over several adoptable animals and we
are delighted to say that two little kittens have now found their new happily
ever after home, because of this event!
Nika the K-9 dog was also there to help
things along, and I was very happy to hold
a book-signing there as well. Residents
came out in full force allowing a very
healthy donation from the proceeds of
each book went to Almost Home.
A raffle basket was also part of the
day’s event; it contained over $500
worth of items and gift cards from the
following people and businesses: 45th
Street Pub; A Taste Of Philly; Aunt
Charlotte’s Candies; Café’ Bella Vita;
Judith Kristen; Just Plain Silly
Entertainment, LLC; McFarlan’s
Market; Merchantville Diner; Petco;
Pinsetter Bar & Bowl; Poochie Palace
Pet Spa; Primerica Ellis & Associates;
Route 130 Car & Dog Wash; The SPA
Fitness Center; Tea Kettle Bakery &
Café’; and Tortilla Press.
The winner of the basket was
announced at The Pennsauken Car and
Bike Show on Sept. 30. Almost Home
again brought along adoptable animals
and I was once again there to lend
a hand, signing copies of “Mookie and
the Rescued Cat,” which benefitted the
Shelter.
And, how perfect to have this issue
embrace this “Paws for the Cause,” as
October is “Adopt a Dog” month. But
even if now is not the right time for you
to adopt, please drop by the shelter and
volunteer or make a donation.

Events Remember Native Sons Gone Too Soon
continued from page 1
and friends, allowing time to grieve, but
not much else.The event at Pinsetter was
a first step in remembering the joy
Michael brought to people’s lives.
“It was a really rough week for a lot of
people. It was really emotional,”
explained Jason Lacovara, one of
Michael’s closest friends.“We felt that we
should have something in Pennsauken to
get everyone together. We really wanted
a celebration of his life.”
The outpouring of support for
Michael and his family was impressive,
as people stood shoulder to shoulder
for most of the event, something that
did not go unnoticed by Michael’s parents.
“It’s overwhelming,” says Carol
Hagan, Michael’s mother. “The love
and caring from everybody has just
been amazing to us.We feel the love for
Michael.”
“You don’t realize the impact your
son had on so many people,” added
Michael Hagan, Mike’s father. “We
knew he had a lot of friends. But to see
this: the people he’d worked with, the
people who attended the funeral; it is
overwhelming to know he touched so
many lives and so many hearts.”
Anyone who spoke about Michael
echoed similar sentiments: his adventurous spirit, his passion for travel, and
his love of Philadelphia. From running
with the bulls in Spain, to experiencing
that great new restaurant in the city,
Hagan lived life to the fullest.
“He created an example,” explained
Jessie Hagan, Michael’s brother. “You
want to keep that going.You want to do
right by Mike.”
“When you hear, ‘he was one of the
good ones,’ Mike was one of them,”
added Lacovara. “He was a positive
force in everyone’s life.”
Over $18,400 was raised during the
event. A portion of the proceeds went
to raise the reward to find Michael’s
killer to $50,000. The remainder will go
to set up a scholarship in his name, a fitting way to remember Hagan’s passion
for life and generosity.
Sharing a Passion for Science
When talking about their son, the
parents of Jonathan Page spoke of his
considerable spirit, his love of the sciences and his strong sense of community. So when the Merchantville native
and Bishop Eustace graduate died with
his wife in a car accident two years ago,
family and friends created a scholarship
fund for students who shared his passions. To help fund the scholarship,
community members from both
Pennsauken and Merchantville gathered at Woodbine Swim Club for a beef
and beer. The event was the inaugural
fundraiser for the Jonathan Page
Memorial Scholarship Fund. And
according to lifelong friend Steve
Szurek, who was Jon’s best man at his
wedding, the swim club served as the
perfect setting.
“We chose to have it here because
that’s where we grew up,” says Szurek.
“We were best friends and our families
always came here together.”
And they came together again for
Jon; family, friends and neighbors, a true
tribute to the lives Page touched.
“My heart is exploding with love and
gratitude,” says Nancy Page, Jon’s mother. “This is amazing. We are so grateful.”
“We’re in awe,” added Chris Page,
Jon’s brother. “There’s been a lot of
enthusiasm, a lot of people going out of
their way to support his legacy, his passion for science.”
To date, two Bishop Eustace graduates, chosen by teachers at the high
school, have benefitted from the scholarship fund. While Frank Devone, a
Math and Physics double major at
Ursinus College, and Joe Meloni, a
undecided Engineering major at
Drexel, were both surprised to receive
the award, they were also deeply honored and remain committed to helping
maintain Jon’s legacy.
“It’s not just the money. It’s a continuation,” explains Devone. “You
become involved and help the next
recipients.”
“There’s a bigger scope. It gave me
more motivation to do well,” adds
Meloni. “I feel like I owe it to Jon and
the Page family to excel.”
The event helped raise an impressive
$10,500 for the Jonathan Page
Scholarship Fund, insuring that more
bright students can pursue their
dreams, just like Jon.

Jr. Memorial Fund, visit MichaelHagan.net.

Did Pennsauken Receive A Visit From

A Jersey Legend?
en box but would not open it except at
the regular meeting of his lodge of Tall
Cedars of Lebanon. Another report
came that the devil had inadvisedly
touched the third rail of a trolley line near
Clayton and went up in a puff of smoke.
After more than a week, the visits of
the Jersey Devil ended as mysteriously
as they began. In the century since, our
Jersey Devil has largely returned to his
familiar pattern of few and isolated
sightings. and his call has been heard
deep in the Pine Barrens.
Yet, in 1909, for all the sightings and
reports of tracks in Camden, Haddonfield, Merchantville, Moorestown, and
other nearby towns, no reports have
been found coming out of Pennsauken.
It should be clear that he could hardly
have made so many local appearances
without crossing into our township.
That being so, why the lack of reports?
Today, we can only speculate, of
course. For my own part, I would prefer
to hypothesize that any poor devil so
pursued and driven by gawkers,
reporters, and mobs with guns would
need a refuge, a place to pause and take
rest during such a hectic week. I would
like to imagine our Jersey Devil taking
his naps between public appearances
while reclining on the peaceful banks of
Pennsauken Creek, and chuckling at all
the fuss and bother over one little devil.

Flushing Of Fire Hydrants
The Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission will be flushing hydrants
Sunday through Thursday nights, through Oct. 4, between the hours of 7 p.m.
and 11 p.m.
Hydrant flushing is an important element in the continuing program to
improve the quality of water in our system. This procedure clears the distribution system of non-harmful sediment that may build up over time. The MPWC
schedules hydrant flushing during night and early morning hours to create the
least impact on our customers.
While we are flushing in your neighborhood, you may experience
decreased water pressure and/or temporary discoloration of your water.
If discoloration occurs, customers are advised to simply run their cold
water for a few minutes until it is clear. Customers are encouraged to
check for discolored water before doing laundry.
If customers have questions regarding the flushing program, they
should contact the MPWC Customer Support Center at (856) 663-0043.
The Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission meets
on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m.
These meetings are open to the public and are now
being held at 6751 Westfield Avenue, Pennsauken.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR REMOTE READ DEVICES
If you have a remote device on the exterior of your property that

and costs as low as possible.
Please compare the reading on your remote device with the meter
inside your home and contact the MPWC with both readings.
You may record your readings below and call the number listed.

ALL AROUND PENNSAUKEN
Your Fire Department: The Bureau of Fire Prevention
By Fire Chief Joseph V. Palumbo, Sr.,
Pennsauken Fire Department
Every year, one week in October is
recognized nationally as “Fire
Prevention Week,” an initiative geared
toward increasing the awareness of fire
safety, specifically residential fires,
injuries, and fatalities.With 85 percent of
all national structure fires occurring in
private residences, fire deaths trending
toward 2,600 people annually, and the
highest risk groups being children under
four and adults over 65, this cooperative
effort is more important than ever.
The Bureau of Fire Prevention
The Bureau of Fire Prevention is just
one component of the Pennsauken Fire
Department. It remains, in addition to
public education, our one method to
work proactively in the community to
reduce the risk of fire and injuries from
fire. The main office of the Bureau of
Fire Prevention is located at 4700
Westfield Ave. at 47th St. in the Robert
Singer Building, and is open Monday
through Friday, as well as 24 hours a day
at pennsaukenfire.org.
Current responsibilities of the staff of
the Bureau of Fire Prevention include:
uniform fire code enforcement, fire
cause and origin investigation, public
education, the juvenile firesetter program, residential resale inspections, and
the residential smoke detector program.
Enforcement of the Uniform Fire
Code of the State of New Jersey is our
primary program that is conducted in
all occupied and registered properties
in Pennsauken Township. These properties include commercial, manufacturing, mercantile, and multiple residential
dwellings within Pennsauken. In 2011,
the four-person staff of the Fire
Marshal and three Fire Inspectors con-
Congratulations and
Best of Luck from
the Pennsauken Fire
Department
The officers and members of the
Pennsauken Fire Department wish to
offer congratulations to Chief (Retired)
Norman Figueroa, Jr. for 50 years of
service; Firefighter Perry Bascou for 44
years of service; and Firefighter Rich
Cornforth for 36 years of service. This
represents an incredible 130 years of
combined service to Pennsauken. We
also wish to offer a best of luck to
Firefighter Joe Fabrizio, who recently
entered the United States Marine
Corps; and Firefighter Ryan Madden,
who entered the United States Army in
September.
ducted 1,674 code inspections, with the
majority requiring one initial inspection
and one abatement inspection.
Fires occur every day in the United
States, and Pennsauken is no exception.
The Fire Marshal is charged by state
statute with the responsibility to investigate all fires within the jurisdiction of
Pennsauken Township. Our personnel
are certified through the NJ
Department of Criminal Justice and
the International Association of Arson
Investigators to conduct cause and origin investigations. These investigations
involve fires in residential and commercial structures, vehicles, outside property and structures, as well as fires that are
identified as intentionally set. Fire
Inspectors work in conjunction with
Pennsauken Police Detectives and the
Camden County Prosecutors Office to
conduct a thorough review of a fire
scene to determine how and why a fire
started.This process includes a methodical reconstruction of a fire scene, the
collection and testing of evidence, documentation, and report preparation.
Public education in conjunction with
code inspections are the two proactive
measures aimed at reducing fires and
fire injuries in Pennsauken. Fire
Inspectors conduct public education
programs in all public, parochial, and
private schools in Pennsauken each
October. In 2011, over 5,000
Pennsauken school children took part
in these programs. In addition to public
education, the juvenile firesetter program is conducted from the Bureau of
Fire Prevention. This proven intervention regiment is aimed at identifying the
tendencies that cause juveniles to set
fires.A juvenile referred to the program
enters into one-on-one sessions with a
certified counselor that is developed
based on his or her needs. The program
includes education, parent meetings,
and if needed, private sessions with a
licensed psychologist.
Other public education programs
available include fire extinguisher training, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation
(CPR) training, and fire department
based presentations and displays at
community events.
In an effort to ensure new home
owners in Pennsauken Township spend
their first of many nights in a safe and
prepared atmosphere, a home seller
must apply for and receive a certificate
of inspection from the Bureau of Fire
Prevention. Prior to a seller completing
the settlement of sale, a Fire Inspector
will inspect the property to ensure
smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
are both operational and installed at
the proper location and that the home’s
kitchen is equipped with a properly
rated fire extinguisher. This inspection
can be completed by way of application
with the homeowner or a realtor.
In 2009, the Pennsauken Fire
Department initiated a residential
smoke detector program, geared
toward providing any resident of
Pennsauken Township with a free
smoke detector if needed, as well as
smoke detector testing and education if
requested. Our partner agencies for this
program are the Camden County Fire
Marshal’s Office and WPVI Channel 6
through their “Operation 6 Save A
Life” initiative. Pennsauken Firefighters
canvas neighborhoods after a residential fire occurs to offer a smoke detector
tests and replacement of detectors and
batteries if needed. Additionally, any
Pennsauken resident can contact the
Bureau of Fire Prevention or e-mail
[email protected] pennsaukenfire.org to request
assistance. A Fire Inspector or local fire
suppression unit will be assigned to contact you to address your needs.
Thank you for your time in getting to
know your fire department a little bit
better. Please call us anytime at 856665-0774 or visit our website at
www.pennsaukenfire.org.

ALL AROUND PENNSAUKEN
HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS Friday Night Lights Equals Big Success For Pennsauken
By Billy Wright
Pennsauken High School Athletic Director
The lights shone bright in Pennsauken on Friday evening Sept. 14, as
the Big Red football team entertained
over 2,000 boisterous supporters in the
first night time high school football
game in Pennsauken. The large crowd
was instrumental in helping the Indians
stave off a determined Cherry Hill East
Cougars attempt to ruin the historical
night.
After a scoreless first quarter,
Pennsauken put points on the board
when Marlin Finley tossed a 15-yard
pass to Isiah Ingram. Antoine
Dickerson kicked the extra point and
the Indians went to the locker room
leading 7-0. The Cougars answered in
the third quarter on a 70-yard run to cut
the lead to 7-6. The teams traded
turnovers and shared strong defensive
play in the third quarter.With a nervous
crowd on the edge of their seats, Deyon
Edwards scored the go-ahead touchdown of the game late in the fourth
quarter on a five-yard run to lead PHS
to a 13-7 win.
BCSL Experience A Positive Start
Fall Indian athletes are off to a positive experience competing for the first
time in the Burlington County
Scholastic League (BCSL). With a 4-1
win over Palmyra, the girl’s soccer team
earned the program’s first win in the
league, as Michelle Basner scored two
goals. That early soccer win was quickly
followed up by a 2-0 win over
Cinnaminson by the Big Red field
hockey team. The boys and girls soccer
teams both lost narrow contests to
highly regarded Burlington Township,
1-0 for the boys and 2-0 for the girls.
Line Dancing Night Planned
The fall school term will quickly pick
up the “hot foot” as the All Sports
Booster Club will sponsor a Mother/
Daughter Line Dancing Party on Friday,
Oct. 12 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at
Pennsauken High School. DJ Norris
“Butch” Thomas of Soul Line Review
TV will provide the music and dance
instruction. Tickets are $10 in advance,
$12 at the door and include a night of big
fun, dance instruction, and refreshments.
Mother/Daughter combo tickets are
available for $15. Contact any Boosters
Club member or the PHS Athletic
Department for more information.
All Star Booster Club
With the annual goal to present
$5,000 in scholarships to worthy PHS
student-athletes, the All Sport Boosters
Club will attempt to raise the bar. This
year, the All Star Boosters look to present $8,000 in scholarships.
The club’s second largest fundraiser
is the annual Pine Valley snack sale.The
sale is organized around PHS athletes
who sell a host of goodies for $6 each.
See your local PHS high school student
athlete to purchase a snack, or contact
the PHS Athletic Department for more
information.
NCAA College Recruiting
Will your child play college athletics?
The PHS Athletic Department will conduct a NCAA recruiting workshop on
Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the high
school auditorium. Athletic Director
Billy Wright will discuss the college
recruiting process, including academic
requirements, core courses, certification,
and game winning strategies to increase
chances of college admission.The workshop is designed for the parents and athletes in grades 7-12.

Cross Country Off To A Fast Start

Cross Country Coach
After a long and hot summer of training, the girls and

IS CREMATION FOR YOU?
Most people think cremation is simpler, less expensive,
quicker with fewer decisions than a full burial funeral. In some
cases that is the truth. But in most cases cremation requires more
decisions because more options are available.
There are two major decisions regarding cremation. The first
is whether to have a viewing/visitation period or not. If so, then
the embalming operation, casketing, dressing, casket rental etc.
are necessary and the costs are similar to a burial funeral. If no
viewing is desired the embalming and casket are not needed and
a Memorial Service is usually held at the funeral home or church.
Quite often families have a clergy person for the service, the urn
displayed, photos, floral arrangements and a video tribute.
The second decision is what is to be done with the cremains
(ashes). Some people elect to have them buried in a cemetery;
normally they can be place above or with a previous burial,
depending on the cemetery. Cremains can also be scattered,
depending on the location. Normally the cremains are placed in
some type of container/urn. If an urn is not selected they are
placed them in a temporary urn until a decision has been made.
We have been handling cremation funerals for three
generations. Our first cremation funeral was in 1928. Feel free to
contact us for copy of our cremation brochures.
