Amidst cheers, laughter and the crack of bats, the Rabinowitz Baseball Complex in Voorhees came alive on April 13 as the Gloucester Township Vikings Athletic Association (GVAA) hosted its opening day parade and ceremony to start the 2024 season.

Players and coaches arrived promptly at 8:30 a.m. to the field located in the rear of the Kresson Road complex. The first games of the new season began at 10:30.

The parade – a cherished tradition started by past GVAA president Larry Davies – wound its way to Babe Ruth field, where family and friends of players were able to take photos.

It was at the field that the open-day ceremony began with guest speakers, including representatives from the township police, firefighters and EMS and Mayor Michael Mignogna.

“One of my favorite days of the year is opening day for GVAA baseball,” he noted. “Seeing the excitement at the parade of the players, coaches, parents and grandparents

is priceless.”

“I have been part of GVAA baseball for over three decades,” Mignogna added, “and have watched it evolve into one of the finest youth baseball organizations in the state. We are fortunate to have

state-of-the-art facilities and wonderful volunteers who give their time so our kids can learn the game and have fun.”

GVAA president John Conners also reflected on the significance of the day’s events.

“The GVAA opening day pa-

rade was created by our past president … Larry Davies,” Conners said. “(It’s) a great tradition that we have had the pleasure hosting the past seven years.”

Conners – who has dedicated five years to the GVAA

board – explained the organization’s commitment to youth growth and development.

“GVAA is an amazing organization that is always striving to grow and teach our local youth,” he pointed out. “This past year, with the help of Voorhees Township, we have added lights to our AA field, revamped the dirt infields on our AA and AAA fields, partnered with USA Prime (a Westampton baseball club) to bring training to all players, and introduced new upto-date uniforms with every child’s last name on the back.”

Tamika Duckett, owner of Togetherness Catering, oversees the concession stand and snack bar during the baseball season. She was touched by the spirit of opening day.

“Opening day has made my heart smile for the three consecutive seasons that Togetherness Catering has been a vendor to GVAA,” she related.

“As a former food service manager, I have fed, made friends, and watched high-school girls mature in stature, intellectually, and through their palates. I feel like I am reliving that same experience through the GVAA organization.

Report potholes to Camden County Public Works

Every Spring as the weather warms, and asphalt plants restart their operations, it marks the start of the Department of Public Works pothole patrol. Several crews are hitting the streets to repair the breakdown of the roads created by the winter conditions over the last three months.

This spring season, we are continuing with the county’s capital maintenance program to mend roadways and have dozens of locations that will be repaved and repaired this construction season. This program is crucial to keeping our county infrastructure in top shape and to ensure safety and ease of travel along the 1,200 lane miles of roads that run through our communities.

The Commissioners are asking residents to report any road hazards they encounter to the Public Works Hotline (856) 566-2980. The number is answered by a live person, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Also, residents can contact DPW through the county website at or through Twitter at @ camdencountynj or Facebook at

When residents call the Highway Department to report an issue, county personnel will come out to address the situation within a short period of time.

Berlin teacher charged with harassment

A 38-year-old Marlton resident has been arrested and charged with cyber harassment and criminal trespass after he was placed on administrative leave from his job at Berlin Community School on April 15, according to Berlin Borough police.

Teacher Scott D. Nalick was escorted off school grounds after what were described as “concerning” communications and social media posts he wrote directed at students, parents and staff, causing the school to cut off his electronic access. He also allegedly “placed a large plastic tote” behind the school, police said.

The situation escalated when Berlin and Evesham police officers conducted a

well-being check at Nalick’s residence, where he was advised to cease all contact with the school. Police allege that Nalick later drove to the residence of a school staffer outside of Berlin whom he allegedly harassed, then showed up on school grounds.

Nalick was arrested at the school and remanded to the Camden County Jail to await a detention hearing. He also faces charges of altering government computer documents, according to police.

The case prompted police to implement additional security measures at Berlin Community School, including increased

patrols during school hours and the assignment of an additional School Resource Officer. School Superintendent

Brenda Harring also asked that students who may be contacted by Nalick immediately inform an adult.

Along with Evesham police, the Berlin department was assisted by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, Monroe Township police and school administrators. As the investigation continues, Berlin police ask that anyone with information related to the case call the department at (856) 767-4700.

Climate change takes toll on state farmers

Once known for their fertile lands and bountiful harvests, Camden County farms are grappling with the harsh realities of climate change, including unpredictable weather patterns and increased pest pressures.

According to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the state is warming faster than the rest of the Northeast region. Residents are already feeling effects like chronic heatwaves to intense flooding and rising sea levels.

Gov. Phil Murphy responded to some climate change concerns by issuing an executive order in 2021 that established an interim greenhouse gas reduction target of 50% by 2030. That ambitious goal is coupled with the state’s exist-

ing aim of an 80% reduction by 2050, which will necessitate significant near-term investments and comprehensive policy reforms.

The state has also developed a Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) as part of a Phase 1 Climate Pollution Reduction Grant (CPRG) funded by the federal EPA.

Barbara Stella, a Berlin native and owner of Stella Farms there, has deep-rooted concerns about the impact of climate change on agriculture in South Jersey. Raised on the very farmland she now oversees, Stella’s journey from farm life to teaching biology has given her a different perspective on the climate change threats facing her industry.

Stella has witnessed first hand those threats since taking over the farms after her father’s death in 1997. She

has delved into researching geo-engineering, a method said to mitigate climate change effects.

“It will prevent carbon dioxide buildup and reflect the sun’s light to prevent global warming,” Stella explained. “Two concerns of mine are the reduction of the sun’s light, evidenced by eight to nine cloudy days in a row.”

Stella is also alarmed about military jets spraying particles that are said to combat global warming, so she reached out to the state’s Department of Agriculture.

“If there are no farmers, there is no food,” she emphasized, highlighting the critical role of agriculture in sustaining communities.

As a member of the Camden County Board of Agriculture, Stella is determined to learn the reason for the aerial sprayings.

“The spraying has to be on a large scale,” she asserted. “I am trying to figure out what they are spraying and who it is. Is it in our plants, in our soil, and in our water? I will find out.”

Despite the challenges, Stella remains committed to providing fresh produce to her


“Our farmer’s market has been in business for over 100 years,” she said. “Everything we have is fresh.”

Battered and bruised: The case that made domestic violence a cause

The recent death of O.J. Simpson brought to mind the staggering events of June 1994, when the football great was accused of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a friend. It was a legal case that became a spectacle.

We all know how that turned out. But O.J. Simpson’s death on April 10 inspired a nationwide rehashing of the story we couldn’t look away from – then and even now. Many of us know where we were the moment Simpson was acquitted in 1995.

But behind that history is the fact that the murder case put a spotlight on domestic violence, a still intractable crime that affects more than 10 million adults – mostly women, but some men – each year, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).

Police made frequent visits to Brown Simpson’s home before she was killed and her ex-husband had already been convicted of spousal abuse. But that did not end her suffering: her death did.

Domestic violence hurts not just spouses or partners, but their children, of whom one in 15 are exposed to intimate partner violence each year, according to the NCADV. About 90% of those children are eyewitnesses to the abuse.

Repeated domestic violence can also have an effect on the victim’s extended family, the community and law enforcement. An abusive partner may threaten his target’s family or friends. Children who witness domestic violence bring those experiences to their schools. Ask any police officer and they will likely tell you domestic situations are their most dangerous calls.

Many believe the Simpson murder case resulted in Congress passing the Violence Against Women Act three months after Brown Simpson’s death, according to a New York Times op-ed by journalism professor Rachel Louise

Snyder. The law also established the National Domestic Violence hotline.

“At that point in time (the 1994 murders), we were still struggling to get people to understand what domestic violence was,” Rita Smith, executive director of the NCADV, told Time magazine. “And now that term – domestic violence – is something that most people understand. It’s not something that was universally known prior to those murders.”

Yet each step forward is often followed by a step backward. That may be because repeated violence against women most often occurs behind closed doors, with most cases never reported to police, according to While just 10 to 18% of those arrested for domestic violence are arrested again within six months, 15 to 30% face a second arrest within 28 months, according to the website.

Getting out from behind those closed doors isn’t always easy either. The refrain we often hear – Why

doesn’t she just leave? – belies the fact that escaping abusive situations can result in being homeless, often with children. About 50% of all homeless women reported that domestic violence was the immediate cause of their situations, according to the National Center on Family Homelessness.

Victims are still too often not believed when they report domestic violence. Many have a hard time admitting they’re victims, according to NPR. Still others are killed before they can report the crime.

But progress has been made.

“It’s worth taking a moment to remember the ways his (O.J. Simpson’s) case – even in the light of the outcome – had profound and lasting consequences for domestic violence victims,” Snyder wrote, “for their advocates and for court systems.”

If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, call the 800799-SAFE (7233) hotline. It operates 24/7.

“Their (the players’) energy keeps me motivated and their smiles keep me coming back,” Duckett emphasized. “I hope our efforts and presence do the same for the children and the families of GVAA.”

Tiffany Cash, a GVAA baseball mom, shared her family’s experience with the organization. Her son, Cameron was part of the opening day festivities.

“It was a great day for the kids and families,” she recalled. “I feel GVAA gives kids

a safe place to learn baseball and build friendships.”

GVAA has plans for future enhancements, including the addition of a pavilion to the T-ball and K-League areas and an indoor facility for yearround baseball training.

As Conners aptly put it: “None of this would be possible without the overwhelming support of Voorhees Township and our Mayor Michael Mignogna.”

mate change facing farmers in the region.

“The weather’s become like a dice roll these days,” he noted. “One minute it’s a drought, the next a deluge. You can’t plan for anything. Early warmth tricks the crops into starting early, then a cold snap wipes them out. It’s like starting from scratch every year.

“And if that wasn’t bad enough,” Bauer added, “the warmer weather brings on a whole new wave of pests. We

have to use more and more pesticides, which drives up costs and isn’t great for the environment.”

Bauer also pointed out the strain on water resources.

“In dry seasons, we have to increase irrigation, which is not always available for all growers,” he said. “The wells can run out of water, and the next day you can get a flood that is not even enough to fill the water table. It’s not enough to store water; it dries fast from the surface.”

The cigar lifestyle offers a multifaceted experience

The cigar lifestyle is a captivating and timeless experience that has enthralled individuals for centuries. It is a practice that goes beyond the mere act of smoking, encompassing an intricate culture and a sense of camaraderie among enthusiasts. The allure of the cigar lifestyle lies not only in the pleasure of smoking a premium cigar, but also in the artistry, craftsmanship, and the stories that accompany it.

One of the most remarkable aspects of the cigar lifestyle is the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into creating a premium cigar. From the seed selection to the cultivation, fermentation, and rolling process, every step is carefully executed to ensure the highest quality product. The dedication and skill of the master torcedores (cigar makers), are evident in the flawless construction and

the smooth draw of a premium cigar. The appreciation for this artistry is a key component of the cigar lifestyle, as enthusiasts take delight in understanding and discussing the intricacies of each premium cigar they smoke.

Beyond the craftsmanship and tradition, the cigar lifestyle fosters a sense of camaraderie and community. Whether in a cozy cigar lounge or at a gathering of aficionados, conversations and connections flow effortlessly in the presence of a shared passion. The atmosphere created by the gentle curl of smoke and the laughter that fills the air fosters a welcoming environment where individuals from all walks of life can come together, share stories, and forge lasting friendships. The cigar becomes a catalyst for meaningful connections and an avenue for the

exchange of ideas and experiences.

The cigar lifestyle offers a multifaceted experience that extends far beyond the act of smoking. It encompasses an appreciation for craftsmanship, a connection to tradition and history, and a sense of community among like-minded individuals. Engaging in the cigar lifestyle is not merely a pastime, but a journey of discovery, where one can explore the nuances and complexities of a premium cigar while immersing themselves in a rich cultural heritage. We invite you to stop by Heritage Premium Cigar Shop and embark on a journey that promises pleasure, companionship, and community.

Singer-songwriter – and TV mogul –John Eddie ready to rock Resorts

To those who remember when singer-songwriter John Eddie regularly played up and down the Jersey Shore, his Saturday gig at Resorts Casino-Hotel may not seem like a particularly big deal. But seeing the Cherry Hill native on the Superstar Theater stage will actually count as a rare sighting.

“We stopped playing, obviously, during COVID; I hadn’t played until last summer,” offered Eddie during a recent phone call to his Nashville home. “I did a couple shows at (Asbury Park’s famed Stone Pony), one in Philadelphia and one at Ram’s Head (in Maryland) and that was it.

“I love playing, but it’s a different beast for where I’m at in my life now than it was when I was younger. So, I’ve only played four gigs in the last four years.””

What’s also different, he continued, is the musical marketplace. When he said he always looks “at the writing on the wall,” he was referring to the tribute-band explosion of the past decade or so. Whether the venues are theaters, clubs or casinos, acts that recreate the music of a specific band or solo artist tend to take up large chunks of the performance schedules.

“The tribute bands are really killing it,” Eddie noted, using the verb in a positive way. “I do a couple of covers in my shows, but it’s mostly original (material). It’s not like it was back when we first started (in the early 1980s). Everyone was trying to be in original bands back then. But now people want to hear songs they know.

“I’ve seen some of these tribute bands,” he added. “It used to be you’d look down on them with dis-

dain, but they’re really good and they really put the work in. I’m just like another audience member when I go see them: I want to hear a song I know, too. So I enjoy seeing them. It’s just not something I’m good at.”

As it turns out, Eddie – who has gained a loyal cult following with his gritty, roots-rocking music and heartfelt lyrics often tinged with a sly sense of humor – had another, far more glamorous excuse for cutting back on his musical performances the past few years: In 2023, Netflix streamed 10 episodes of “Agent Elvis,” a for-adults animated series in which Elvis Presley is portrayed as a super spy working for the U.S. government.

Eddie created and developed the show – the original pitch was “Elvis Presley directed by (“Pulp Fiction” director) Quentin Tarrantino” – with Mike Arnold, a writer for the FX series “Archer”; and the King’s ex-wife, Priscilla, whom Eddie first met some 20 years ago when he was the opening act on two tours headlined by Presley’s daughter Lisa Marie. The series’ star-studded cast included Mat-

thew McConaughey (as Elvis), Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) and Don Cheadle.

Despite receiving generally good critical and Internet buzz, the series was not renewed for a second season.

“I was co-show runner and cohead writer,” Eddie explained. “So that was a pretty heavy workload. We were working like 10 hours a day for three years on it. I was blessed to have it during COVID, because I didn’t have to play “to earn a living.”

While Eddie is likely disappointed that “Agent Elvis” wasn’t renewed, he certainly appreciates what a huge accomplishment it was to pitch a “crazy idea” to Priscilla Presley back in 2012.

“It would blow my mind when they’d go, ‘We sent the script to Matthew (McConaughey); he wants to do it,’” Eddie recalled. “And I’m like, ‘Really? Matthew McConaughey wants to be in this first thing I’ve ever done for TV?’”

Working with Priscilla Presley and the “Agent Elvis” cast was not Eddie’s first time rubbing elbows with big-time celebrities. On multi-

ple occasions through the decades, he has been joined onstage by Bruce Springsteen. The first time was in 1982 at Big Man’s West, the Red Bank nightclub owned by the late Clarence Clemons, the E Street Band’s beloved saxophone player.

As he recently posted on his Facebook page:

42 years ago today … it was Easter Sunday … the first time Bruce jumped up on stage and played with us … There were like 11 people in the audience … I was 22 years old and the guy who changed my life at age 14 with his words and music was standing next to me singing with me and my band … We played ‘Long Tall Sally,’ ‘Rockin All Over The World,’ ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Carol’ … The next day my face hurt … I couldn’t figure out why … Then I figured it out … It was from smiling so hard the night before …Thanks for the kickstart Bruce

While Eddie, who has had his songs recorded by the likes of Kid Rock, Sammy Hagar and Keith Urban, has severely cut back on performing and is mustering most of his time and energy for future TV projects, his fans needn’t worry they’ve heard the last of him, musically speaking.

“I still write, and I’m planning on putting out a new record,” he promised. “I have no thoughts that I’m gonna have a hit record, but I write songs for myself that aren’t good for pitching to other artists.

“So I’m gonna put out another record once I figure out what songs I want to put on,” Eddie added. “I’m blessed; I still write. I could never stop writing music, even if I wasn’t putting it out. My phone has 3,000 songs on it that I wrote. I’m not saying there are 3,000 good songs. But I have 3,000plus songs on my phone.”

TV tie-in 2

Resorts Casino-Hotel has obviously found success with its series of interactive comedy-murder mysteries based on the popular television series staged by Philly-based Without a Cue Productions. The latest offering is “A Dundie Demise: An Office Whodunnit,” whose setting and characters are taken from the sitcom “The Office.”

The program – for which audience members solve a homicide committed during the annual Dunder-Mifflin interoffice awards ceremony – debuted earlier this month and will be repeated this Saturday; Saturday, May 4; Saturday, May 18; and Saturday, June 1 and 8. For tickets, go to
