ARTS&ENTERTAINMENTIssue! District welcomes three new principals and cites students

Superintendent Dr. Kwame Morton appointed three new principals at the Cherry Hill board of education meeting on May 28.

Starting July 1, Alison McCartney – Rosa Middle School’s assistant principal – will become principal at Woodcrest Elementary School. Christina Collazo-Franco will be Carusi’s new principal beginning July 29, and Daniel Finkle will be in charge at Cherry Hill East.

Morton spoke highly of all three and introduced their backgrounds.

McCartney has been involved with the district as supervisor of curriculum and instruction for several years and “knows the district inside and out, as a parent, community member and as an employee for a very long time,” Morton said.

Collazo-Franco comes from Buena Regional High School, where she served as principal. She has served as principal of Pennsville Middle School and assistant principal at High -

land Regional High School, and is a former English teacher.

Finkle has served as principal of Delran High School for the past 12 years and was also a principal in the Denville Township School District, as well as an assistant principal in the Livingston public schools. He also has taught mathematics in both public and private schools.

“I spent 30 years in this business and cannot imagine having the opportunity to come to East,” Finkle said, “and I’m excited to start and become a part of the family and ultimately see what we can do together with all the students, all the parents, all the staff, and continue to embrace the traditions of East and make it the best possible experience for our kids.”

Student board of education representatives Matthew Rentezelas and Gia Gupta from Cherry Hill East and Collin Duckett and LaTasha Bailey from West were honored at the meeting.

Knitters have mastectomy patients covered

Volunteers hand make soft pads as alternative to traditional prostheses

If you recently had a mastectomy and sought alternatives to breast implants or prostheses, the Knitted Knockers of South Jersey have you covered.

Cherry Hill residents Denise Weinberg and Nancy Shubach have been hand making what they call knitted knockers – or pads that serve as prostheses – since they founded the local branch of the Knitted Knockers in 2017. Their goal is to help those who’ve recently had a mastectomy and want a free alternative to heavy, expensive devices.

“Before launching the Knitted Knockers project locally, we consulted with MD Anderson Cooper University Hospital and Virtua Health System breast surgery offices to confirm they would approve the use of knitted knockers for their patients,” Weinberg and Schubach noted in a press release.

“We must credit Susan Bass Levin, past president and CEO of the Cooper Foundation, and Cooper breast surgeon Dr. Kristin Brill (now at Jefferson) for giving us two enthusiastic thumbs up from the onset.”

Breast cancer Nurse Navigator Angela Frantz at MD Anderson’s outpatient cancer center explained that the knitted knockers are suited to patients – especially the elderly – who’ve had mastectomies but can’t or won’t have reconstruction since it involves another surgery.

“It just helps them have a homemade prosthesis that they can apply into their bra, so they feel normal, look normal and feel comfortable in clothing,” she noted.

Frantz also pointed out that

traditional prostheses can be heavier and more uncomfortable than the airy, light and cotton knockers, and that the latter can also be less irritable for those who have swollen chests or tenderness.

For mastectomy patients who want to look somewhat similar after their surgery, there are external prostheses as well as reconstructive surgery that utilizes tissue expanders, described as being like collapsed basketballs that are filled up with saline. Doctors can also make a breast out of belly fat.

“It’s such a nice thing that this is free for these patients, that they (volunteers) do this on their own time and they aren’t asking for anything back, and it’s something to offer our patients who aren’t able to get reconstruction,” Frantz said of the Knitted Knockers of South Jersey.

“When you tell them they’ve been homemade and knitted by women who do this, it makes it extra special.”

The knitted breast pads are made locally by volunteers who adhere to the pattern guidelines found on the Knitted Knockers website, then are stuffed to mimic breast tissue. The pads can be made in different sizes and colors and either knitted or crocheted.

The knockers do take a bit of skill, as they are made using three double-edged needles to create the spiral and rounded shape and require a thinner yarn. Weinberg shared that for her – as she knits and watches TV at night – it takes around three days to make one.

It was at a knitting class that Weinberg and Shubach first met and heard of the knitted knockers.

“I was newly retired,” Shubach remembered. “I was looking for ways to expand my life and thought knitting would be fun for my grandkids, another skill. I didn’t

really know what direction it would take, so when I saw this and saw that it could go in such a beneficial way, I thought it was a wonderful thing to be able to do.”

The knockers first began meeting seven years ago at the Katz Jewish Community Center (JCC), which offered a space for the crafters to gather once a month. They continue to be sponsored by a grant from the JCC that pays for materials and supplies.

“We don’t need to sit around the table and knit,” Weinberg said. “People take the yarn, they take it home, they knit, they brought it back and then we had a stuffing party.”

Although things slowed during the pandemic, the Knockers of South Jersey are gearing up again. Frantz wants to restock free pads across the Camden, Voorhees, Egg Harbor Township and Moorestown locations of MD Cooper Anderson Hospital. Those who would like to try the knockers must specify size, choose a color and decide to either pick up an order or have it mailed

As summer approaches, casinos move the fun outdoors

Once upon a time in Atlantic City, the folks who ran the casinos were dedicated to keeping customers inside – and gambling – as long as possible.

The way industry suits of generations past saw it, every second someone spent away from the slot machines and gaming tables cost them money. As such the beach and other outdoor spaces weren’t seen as amenities, but competition.

The Age of Enlightenment finally arrived around the turn of the 21st century, with the debut of the first generation of beach bars constructed by several properties, including the long-closed Atlantic City Hilton and Trump Plaza Hotel-Casino. Today, al fresco lounges and special events remain a key part of AyCee’s warm-weather game plan.

Below is a look at what’s in store for the Summer of ’24:

• Bally’s Atlantic City

Bally’s Beach Bar serves food and beverages, as does The Yard, the indoor/outdoor party pit located in the courtyard of the Dennis Hotel part of the complex.

The Yard features bands and DJs every Friday and Saturday night and drink specials including $3 beers, $4 shots and $5 cocktails from 7 to 9 p.m.

• Borgata

The bayside pleasure dome has expanded its outdoor pool area to accommodate more cabanas and a larger stage, as well as a cover to keep dry special events like weddings and convention receptions.

While The Big B has always emphasized events and ameni-

The H2Q Beachclub at Ocean Casino-Resort is a popular summertime spot.

ties for younger folks who like to party hearty, this summer, it is also focusing on being “family friendly.”

A highlight of the season will be “Savor Borgata’s Summer Social: A Taste of Paradise.” Set for the Outdoor Pool on June 28, the Polynesian-themed ticketed bash is headlined by James Beard Award-winner Michael Symon, whose Borgata eatery is the Italian salon, Angeline.

• Caesars Atlantic City

Beachside Bar offers beverages (adult and otherwise) Thursday through Monday (Happy Hour is 3 to 5 p.m.).

Cheval de Plongée (a nod to the town’s history; it’s French for “diving horse”) is a walkup operation located on the Boardwalk steps from The Hook. Offerings include a full selection of wine, beer and spirits and noshes from the grab-and-go menu. All can be enjoyed at outdoor tables.

And beginning June 7, the Pool At Caesars (on the 7400 level of the casino’s Ocean Tower) will host a daily 5-to-7

p.m. Happy Hour.

• Golden Nugget Atlantic City

As it always is when the weather heats up, the action will be at The Deck Bayfront Bar & Restaurant, the outdoor venue situated between the casino/hotel tower and the Frank S. Farley State Marina.

The next couple of weeks, The Deck will operate on a weekend-only basis, and then welcome guests seven days a week starting June 13. Each night has a different musical motif (e.g. “Springsteen Thursdays” with the B Street Band and Sundays with local lounge titan Dane Anthony).

Special events include the annual Fake Fest tribute-band week (June 24-30) featuring units performing the music of such artists as Van Halen, Elton John, The Police and Fleetwood Mac, a daylong salute to the “British Invasion” of the mid1960s (July 20) and “Deckstock,” a celebration of the Woodstock Music & Arts Festival (Aug. 10).

• Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Atlantic City

Hard Rock has two fun-inthe-sun (and under-the-stars) spaces this summer.

The “Hard Rock Beach Experience” is open to hotel guests and Unity Card holders, and features lounge chairs, umbrellas and beverage service.

And perched on the Rock’s second level, you’ll find The Terrace, which overlooks the beach, Boardwalk and ocean, and which offers live music, a seasonal menu and specialty drinks.

• Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

What is arguably the most unusual casino event of the summer is the June 7 “Yappy Hour” (4 to 7 p.m.) on The Baywalk, which is located outside the part of the property that houses The Concert Venue and poker room.

“Yappy Hour” is a canine-focused event that includes demonstrations, vendors, police K-9 demonstrations and even a Dog Show whose categories include Best Trick, Best

Rescue, Best Costume, Best Tail Wagger, and Happiest Dog. Winners in each category will be entered into Best of Show competition for a chance to win the grand prize.

In addition, the Humane Society of AtlanticCounty and Atlantic County Canines will have pets available for adoption.

• Ocean Casino-Resort Ocean was dealt a bad hand by Ma Nature: Erosion was so severe this past fall and winter that there isn’t enough sand left on the property’s beach to accommodate a ping-pong table, much less any kind of entertainment venue. But Ocean hasn’t let that stop it from offering outdoor fun.

HQ2 Beachclub, which sits above the Boardwalk and is part of the HQ2 disco complex, will be in full party mode all summer. Revelers can rave in the main pool area or reserve one of six bungalows with private pools, 12 day beds and more than 30 VIP sections on the lower and upper decks. Top DJs will keep the party going, and, of course, there will be plenty to drink, with munchies provided by the Ocean Food Truck.

• Resorts Casino-Hotel Food, drink and live music can be had at Landshark Café, the only outpost of the beachthemed Margaritaville hospitality empire that actually sits on a beach.

• Tropicana Atlantic City One of Atlantic City’s best summertime traditions is the Trop-sponsored fireworks extravaganzas that can be best viewed from the casino’s Boardwalk frontage. The next one is set for July 4 (a Thursday this year), followed by a display every Saturday night between July 6 and Aug. 31.

Art Goes To School seeks volunteers

Art Goes To School (AGTS) is seeking volunteers to help bring reproductions of art into school classrooms from December to March of next year. The group provides orientation and training for 90 minutes a week from Sept. 10 through November. Most volunteers sign up for eight 40-minute classroom presentations at schools of their choosing.

The Cherry Hill chapter of AGTS offers the program for free to grades 1 through 5 in all Cherry Hill elementary

schools. Students learn about art through the ages, from cave paintings to contemporary works and learn to engage with the art and talk about it.

Volunteers are tasked with bringing the art from classroom to classroom like a travelling museum. No teaching or art experience is necessary to volunteer.

Please contact AGTS Cherry Hill Chapter President, Libby DeLuca at 609-280-0333 or for more information.

District: Welcomes new principals

“You have served this community, not just your own schools, your high schools that you represented, but also this entire community of students in the most professional and courageous manner, truly elevating student voice again and again and again and you’ve gone above and beyond so many times,” noted board President Miriam Stern, recounting how the students went to Trenton to advocate for more state aid and spoke before the board throughout the year.

” …I’ve learned from all of you,” Stern continued. “And I will say on behalf of the entire board of education, I’m amazed, so proud, and we cannot wait to see what’s next for all of you.”

During public comments at the meeting, students advocated for West music teacher Blaze Dalio to continue in his position at the school rather than being reassigned to Harte and Sharpe elementary schools. Although the students were passionate and shared encouraging testimonies about Dalio’s impact on the West choir program, the board ultimately approved his transfer.

Morton reiterated that it is the board’s responsibility to al-

locate resources appropriately.

“In this instance,” he claimed, “the quality of the program won’t diminish based on the numbers and based upon the assignment of one person during the day and an additional person coming over to provide small-group instruction and to provide events.”

Even with the transfer, Dalio will work with West students in small groups and in future concerts.

” … The thinking is, and the strategy behind the move as well with him, is that we need to start a grassroots effort to increase quantity,” Morton noted. “And the number of kids who are interested (in choir) and starting at the elementary schools gives us an opportunity to do just that.

“By having him (Dalio) work in the elementary schools, it gives him the opportunity … to expose children to a love of music, and hopefully, as the years proceed, we can see the program grow,” the superintendent added. “And it would be fantastic for him to return to West.”

In other news, the use of aid the district got back from the state will be discussed at the next business and finances committee meeting.

5 JUNE 5-11, 2024 — THE CHERRY HILL — SUN ZONE 2

June puts the emphasis on cancer –and some concerning trends

Hearing the word cancer from a doctor hardly ever suggests good news. It’s estimated that the number of cancer cases nationally will eclipse two million for the first time this year, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), which projects 611,720 deaths in 2024, a slight increase from a year ago.

But there’s good news as the nation observes June’s National Cancer Awareness Month. The cancer death rate dropped 33% from 1991 through 2021, according to statistics from the ACS published in January in USA Today, a figure that reflects lower smoking rates, earlier detection and improved treatments.

Also helping are cancer diagnoses that are happening sooner rather than later among those in middle age, an indication they are likelier to survive longer. While some cancers have higher rates than others, overall, the cancer society says, Americans today are more likely to survive a cancer diagnosis compared with those a generation ago.

The five-year survival rate – the marker for cancer remission – improved from 49% in the mid-1970s to 69% between 2013 and 2019. As of 2022, there were an estimated 18.1 million cancer survivors in the U.S., according to the National Cancer Institute, which estimates that number will increase to 22.5 million by 2032.

But there are some alarming trends in 2024, the first year the nation is expected to top that two million in new cancer cases. That estimate has largely been affected by increases in six of the 10 most common cancers: breast, prostate, endometrial, pancreatic, kidney and melanoma, according to the ACS. The other four are lung, colon and rectum, bladder and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

As a result, more than 611,000 deaths from cancer are projected for the country in 2024, about 1,600 a day. Among concerns reported by the ACS are cancers diagnosed at a younger age: Those include colorectal cancer in those under 55, liver cancer in women

and cervical cancer in women from 30 through 44.

Although smoking, a major cause of cancer, has declined – and improved treatments have helped people live longer with the disease – risk factors such as obesity and lack of early screening have increased. And while more cancers are now being found in middle age, the U.S. population is aging – and cancer rates increase with age.

Early screening is especially important in surviving one particularly stubborn cancer: colorectal.

Of all cancer deaths in people under 50, it’s now number one in deaths of men and number two of women, behind only breast cancer.

“We really need to understand why rates are increasing in those (younger)

age groups,” Dr. Ahmedin Jemal, a senior vice president of surveillance at the ACS, told USA Today.

Almost one out of three people diagnosed with colorectal cancer before age 50 have a family history or genetic predisposition, another reason for early screening. Experts recommend adults 50 to 75 – even younger for those with a family history – get screened for the cancer every two years with a colonoscopy or a stool test that can be done at home. Neither strategy is pleasant, but they work.

The evidence is there: With early detection, colorectal cancer has a 90% survival rate, according to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. That’s as good a reason as any to focus on cancer in June.

The cigar lifestyle offers a experience far beyond the act of smoking

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 life-

style, 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 his-

tory, 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.

the importance of window film. Here are some tips why window tinting is essential:

Why should people seriously consider investing in window tinting for their home?

“For heat, glare, fading of flooring, furniture, paintings, wallpaper, etc. We also offer safety film to protect your home from glass breakage and intruders.”

How does putting film on the windows reduce energy costs?

“By installing film, you prevent cold air from penetrating through the glass surface, reducing heating costs. What comes through during the winter is trapped, which keeps the heat inside your home.”

Talk a little bit about how your product provides protection from the sun?

“This is the latest nanotechnology film that is applied to your existing glass from the inside of your home. Our films insulate homes in both the summer and winter. It also protects

you and your home from harmful UV rays.”

What is safety film and how does it work?

“Safety film prevents the glass from shattering upon impact protecting both people and property. It comes in clear and tinted options for added privacy. In these uncertain times, safety film is a great option for front doors, sidelights, and sliding glass doors.”

How much does it cost?

“Pricing is job specific. Call or email us to receive a FREE estimate. We run several pricing incentives throughout the year... We have one going on now!”

What's involved in this installation?

“Jobs vary from one to the next. Our experienced installers will go over everything with you from start to finish”.

With most people spending more time at home, the need for privacy has become a priority. Ask the experts at South Jersey Window Tinting for suggestions!

Thinking about Auto Tinting? Our products block out 99.9% of UV rays to improve safety and privacy. Our films are approved by the American Cancer Society. We are South Jersey’s #1 Window Tinting company since 1985!

No Bull Mattress & More

No Bull Mattress & More has the prices you have been looking for. They have something for everyone. Saving every customer

55 to 80 percent every minute of every day in a no haggle, no hassle, no pressure environment.

No Bull Mattress & More truly

is the little guy the big guys hope you don’t find. That is their motto, and there may not be a more fitting one for any business anywhere.

Located in a little warehouse next to Dunkin’ Donuts at 2060 Springdale Road in Cherry Hill, take one step inside the front door and you will instantly realize it is unlike any mattress store you have ever been in.

Carole Cutry is the owner and operator with family employees. With virtually no paid advertising, and operating out of a warehouse rather than a big expensive showroom, she simply does not have the overhead that all the others have and can therefore hit lower price points.

Not only has she taken all of the overhead out of buying a mattress, she also eliminated the deceptive advertising, phony sales and high pressure sales tactics that are unfortunately all too common nowadays.

“My goal is for my customers to have fun buying a mattress,” Cutry says. “And if they’re able to come here and find lower prices than any other place, and not have to haggle for those prices, that is a fun buying experience. I want every person that walks out of here to have a smile on their face. We want to be a breath of fresh air in the marketplace.”

No Bull Mattress & More can be found at 2060 Springdale Road in Cherry Hill, and can be reached at (856) 751-1371 or www. Call or stop in. Open Mon – Fri 10-5pm, Sat 11-430pm, and Sun 12-4pm.

Camden County remains committed to caring for our veterans

Although Memorial Day is over, myself and my fellow colleagues remain steadfast in ensuring the support of our veterans and Gold Star families. I, in conjunction with the Camden County Veterans Affairs office, led by Colonel Ted Gallagher, are always looking for ways to further assist our veterans.

and drive that makes a true United States hero. And when I look out into the audience and see the faces of veterans who have served in the Gulf war, in Vietnam, and even World War II, I feel a sense of hope and gratitude, and I am inspired to do more.

County sprays for mosquitoes

The Camden County Mosquito Control Commission was active in the community on May 30 spraying and surveilling areas to manage the insect’s population.

Commissioner Jeff Nash – liaison to the commission – emphasized the need to address standing water.

other types of encephalitis, dog heartworm and malaria. West Nile is particularly dangerous for young children, the elderly and individuals with weakened immune systems.

As a Gold Star Mother, I have always been dedicated to channeling my pain and grief into serving something larger than myself, just as my son Jeremy once did. Since I began serving as county commissioner, no occasion, nor act of service has ever been so personal as supporting our veterans. I consider it an honor and a privilege to play a part in paying forward even a fraction of the service my son made.

For this past Memorial Day, and for all holidays recognizing any men and women who have served this nation, the Board of Commissioners and I have planned numerous events and ceremonies along with the Camden County Veterans Affairs Office with one goal in mind; honor the men and women who have raised their right hand to defend our nation.

As a county commissioner, I am so grateful for are the incredible people that I have met and have had the opportunity to share the stage with. I have been fortunate to offer remarks at our ceremonies for Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor alongside my fellow peers in government who are Veterans themselves. Whenever one of them would speak, they all had the same unmistakable patriotism

For years, I have watched Colonel Gallagher and the Veterans Affairs office create a culture of reverence.

The practice of honoring Camden County veterans with a service medal at our medal ceremonies keeps their acts of service on our minds and in our hearts. Every day, the office goes above and beyond to aid Veterans who need assistance on a variety of matters. Most notably, helping them navigate through complicated paperwork and procedures to access the assistance they require. These applications are necessary for any veteran seeking disability compensation, VA healthcare enrollment, assistance with housing and information on burial benefits. I am proud of Camden County, the Camden County Veterans Advisory Committee, and the Office of Veterans Affairs for the work we do to ensure that all Veterans and Gold Star families in the county get the support and assistance they need and deserve.

“It’s important for homeowners to check their yard and get rid of any standing water to prevent mosquitos from spreading,” he explained. “Be sure to check flower pots and other plastic containers for standing water. Being proactive can have a major impact on the mosquito population and help the hardworking people at the Camden County Mosquito Control Commission in their efforts.”

Mosquitoes are a significant county issue, disrupting outdoor activities and businesses and posing health risks by spreading disease. New Jersey is home to more than 60 species of the insect, and Camden County alone has identified 34 of them.

Mosquitoes in the area can diseases such as West Nile virus, Eastern Equine and

The mosquito season in New Jersey typically begins in April and lasts until October. Mosquito activity peaks in late spring, summer, and early fall, especially during humid evenings. When temperatures fall below 50 degrees, they become dormant.

The commission conducted ULV (ultra-low volume) spraying operations between 2 and 6 a.m. on the 30th in Cherry Hill, Gloucester Township, Voorhees and Clementon.

Nash highlighted the commission’s collaboration with the Public Health Environmental Laboratories in Trenton to monitor and manage West Nile virus and other communicable diseases in mosquito populations.

“If a pool tests positive, the mosquito commission returns to spray the area,” he noted. “The sprayings take place when the mosquitoes are most active.”

The mosquito spray is not harmful to humans or pets, but those with respiratory concerns or sensitivity to irritants should avoid direct

contact. Residents are encouraged to inspect their properties for any objects that can hold water for more than a few days, as mosquitoes require stagnant water to develop. Common problem areas include swimming pools, which can breed the insects quickly if not properly maintained.

Following are tips to reduce mosquito breeding:

• Dispose of unnecessary containers that hold water or turn them upside down.

• Dump water from flower pot dishes weekly.

• Add mosquito larvicide or fish to ornamental ponds.

• Change water in bird baths, fountains and animal troughs weekly.

• Screen vents to septic and other water tanks.

• Store boats to prevent water accumulation.

• Avoid dumping leaves or grass clippings into catch basins or streams.

• Ensure trash can lids and tarp surfaces do not collect water.

• Check downspouts for standing water.
