Democracy on the move at Rowan College hosts a Smithsonian museum’s exhibit on history By LAUREN LAMANTIA The Sun

Mindi Cahall/Special to the Sun

Rowan at Burlington County is one of six community colleges in New Jersey where the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America” has landed. At the kickoff last month were Dr. Michael A. Cioce (left to right), Rowan College at Burlington County president; Congressman Andy Kim and Rowan student Noah Lepek. such as campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia and protest material. “The exhibit gives you a crash course in the entirety of the Revolutionary War to the present day,” Cioce explained. “This

A traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian National Museum of History in Washington, D.C., is now at Rowan College at Burlington County. “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America,” arrived last month and will remain open to the public through Thursday at the campus Student Success Center. “When folks come to us and say, ‘Can you host something?’, if it can check those boxes, we’re going to say yes. If it’s going to provide educational opportunities to residents of Burlington County, we’re going to say yes,” said college President Dr. Michael A. Cioce. The exhibition was created by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) to offer learning opportunities for all ages. It includes historical and contemporary photos; educational and archival videos; and historical objects

is an exhibit that doesn’t cater to only one subset of the population.” According to the school, “Voices and Votes” is part of the Museum on Main Street in the nation’s capital, a collaboration

between the Smithsonian and the Federation of State Humanities Councils. The exhibit got to campus as a result of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, which also co-hosted its kickoff event at Rowan on April

5 as part of the council’s 50th anniversary celebration. Congressman Andy Kim also stopped by to see the exhibit. “It was win, win, win to have something that activated the campus in the way this exhibit did,” Cioce said The exhibit will travel through next January to six community colleges in New Jersey. Cioce noted that choosing Rowan as one site coincided with programming integration at Rowan, including political science courses, a presentation on women’s suffrage and an April 1 naturalization ceremony at the Mt. Laurel campus where 50 candidates from 26 countries earned citizenship. Cioce believes the exhibit will continue to make an impact even when it moves on to the other colleges. “We are sort of on the ground with all the stuff that’s happening from a social justice, from an equity, from a diversity lens and democracy happens here,” he said. “When you look at the thousands of students that enroll not just at RCBC but in the community college sector statewide, this is where democracy happens.” The exhibit is open today and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit https://rcbc.edu/smithsonian

Rowan College at Burlington County joins county’s stigma-free initiative Effort focuses on those with mental illness and substance abuse

Rowan College at Burlington County, New Jersey’s top-ranked community college, is going stigma-free. The college joined with the Burlington County Commissioners, the Burlington County Department of Human Services and the Burlington County Coalition for Healthy Communities and the Riverfront Coalition on April 26 to celebrate the college’s decision to join Burlington County’s Stigma-Free County campaign. This initiative seeks to eliminate stigma surrounding mental illness and substance use disorder and assist those suffering from the conditions by increasing awareness and combating misconceptions about them. “Rowan College at Burlington County is proud to declare that

we are a Stigma Free campus, which aligns with our core belief that everyone should have access to quality education no matter their individual circumstances,” RCBC President Dr. Michael A. Cioce said. “We strive to create an atmosphere where every individual is valued, welcomed and celebrated.” Burlington County Commissioner Director Dan O’Connell and Commissioner Felicia Hopson both said the college’s support was a massive development that sends a powerful message about the importance of eliminating stigma and promoting the available resources for those suffering from mental illnesses. “Our county started a Stigmaplease see STIGMA-FREE, page 8

Hang up on scammers

130 Twinbridge Drive Pennsauken, NJ 08110 (856) 779-3800

How to avoid fraudulent phone calls

A

n elderly South Jersey woman recently got a phone call that shook her to the core. A person claiming to be her daughter said she had been arrested for causing a car accident and needed her mother to pay bail of more than $3,000. When the woman began to suspect the call was not legitimate and requested a phone number where she could reach her daughter, the caller hung up. It was a scam, one of thousands perpetrated every year by criminals to extract money from unsuspecting people, especially vulnerable senior citizens. In a world where communication keeps us plugged in 24/7, the scammer thrives. It may seem quaint with Facebook, Twitter and other means of connection available to us that the phone line is a preferred means of ripping someone off. But it is often a scammer’s favored method. Based on the results of a March 2021 survey, the security app maker Truecaller estimates some 59 million Americans lost money to a phone scam in the 12 months prior to the survey. Data from the FTC (Federal Trade Commission)

In YOUR opinion Let us know your thoughts by sending a letter to the editor to the email address at the right. shows the average financial loss from scams that start with a phone call is $1,200, more than any other form of contact. The AARP estimates half of all mobile calls are fraudulent, and the problem is getting worse. And while fraudulent landline calls have declined because of cell phones, they still serve the scammer’s purpose. Criminals are not above using COVID as a ploy either, according to the U.S. Treasury Department. A scammer may claim to be from the federal government so he or she can offer the victim pandemic-related grants or stimulus payments in exchange for personal financial information. Don’t buy it. Don’t buy these either: A caller asks you to claim a prize you’ve won by turning over gift card information. Or you are asked to pay in advance for a service

or product to help out a friend or colleague in need. People have lost their life savings in these scenarios. What can you do to stop a scammer? The FTC has advice on how to recognize what is fraud and what isn’t. If you are asked to pay money to get a sweepstakes prize, then it isn’t a prize. You can’t be arrested, as some callers threaten by pretending to be law-enforcement sources or representatives of federal agencies; neither of those would call and make threats. And legitimate government agencies – including the IRS and Social Security – will not make a phone call to confirm personal information. The FTC says the best way to avoid being scammed is to hang up before a robo caller asks you to press any numbers. If you don’t recognize a number, end the call. But be advised that scammers can make any name or number look like a real ID. Bottom line: If a call doesn’t have the ring of truth, it could be a fake. Learn to recognize and prevent phone scams by visiting the FTC website at ftc. gov/calls.

Burlington County farmer’s market ends a hit Crafters and artists sell their crops, artwork and goods The Burlington County Farmers Market’s record-setting season ended on a high note with unprecedented attendance at the first of the two holiday markets around the Thanksgiving holiday. The first holiday market on Nov. 20 set a new record with more than 2,000 vehicles counted at the event, surpassing the 1,449 counted during the July 17 market. The final Dec. 4 market drew in even more shoppers. “Word has spread about the amazing varieties of crafts, foods, and produce that’s available at our market and the relaxing fun of shopping outdoors at what remains a working farm,” said Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “We’re thrilled by

the market’s popularity and the boost it’s providing to famers and small business owners.” The final holiday market was held at the Burlington County Agricultural Center on Centerton Road in Moorestown. A dozen farmers and 34 crafters and artists sold, artwork and goods and there were 21 food vendors and a holiday cookie decorating class at the Agricultural Center’s Farmhouse Kitchen. The Old Man Garage Band will also performed live music. “Fresh cut flowers, holiday wreaths, craft beer, gifts, decorations and incredible foods can all be found at the market. Shoppers can check off an entire holiday

list with one trip,” said Commissioner Linda Hynes. “It’s a family-friendly event that helps support our county’s farmers and small business vendors. It’s not to be missed.” Hynes, who is the Board’s liaison to the Department of Resource Conservation and Parks, said the popular holiday markets often draw newcomers to the Agricultural Center, which was previously a 68-acre dairy farm before the County preserved the land in 2005. A portion of the property continues to be leased for farming and the site also has community gardens and field plots please see MARKET, page 9

Eckel: New county commissioner appointed continued from page 5 Regional High School District’s Board of Education, and more than a decade as a scout leader, den leader, mentor and advisor to the Boy Scouts of America. Her volunteer service also includes work with the Medford Education Foundation and the Medford Township Economic Development Commission. She was formerly a co-leader of the Army’s 561st Medical Company Family Readiness Group. In that role, she helped coordinate support for the unit’s families while members were deployed in Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Burlington County Commissioner Felicia Hopson and Commissioner Deputy Director Tom Pullion said these experiences would be of great value to the Commissioners Board and to Burlington County’s residents. “I’m thrilled to welcome Allison to our Board,” Hopson said. “She’s already been a great role model and mentor for our youth, and I know she will excel in her

new role as a county commissioner, adding to Burlington County’s legacy of dynamic women leaders.” “Allison has already demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community service and Burlington County’s people,” Pullion added. “She will hit the ground running and help us continue to protect the high quality of life and affordability that is so important to our families and businesses.” Burlington County Commissioners strive to keep the county affordable for both businesses and residents. According to New Jersey Department of Community Affairs property tax data, Burlington County also has had the lowest average county tax in New Jersey in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and the lowest cost per resident of any New Jersey county. Their goal is to keep Burlington County the lowest for 2022 as well. Eckel will serve as the commissioners’ liaison to the Departments of Public Safety, Resource

Conservation, Military Affairs, Board of Social Services and Prosecutor’s Office. She will also join Commissioner Hopson as a liaison to the Burlington County Women’s Advisory Council. Eckel said she was proud to join a group of public servants who have demonstrated their deep commitment to the county and its more than 460,000 residents. “Throughout the last several years, I’ve witnessed Burlington County assist families and businesses and invest in infrastructure and initiatives that safeguard residents’ health and wellbeing. They have helped preserve and enhance our county’s natural beauty, history and economy, while also holding the line on taxes to deliver much-desired affordability,” Eckel said. “I know it hasn’t been easy and that new challenges await us, but I feel honored and privileged to serve with these commissioners, and I promise to do all I can to help Burlington County prosper.”

free initiative to break down barriers that prevent those suffering from mental illness and substance use disorders from accessing the help they need, and we’re excited that Rowan College at Burlington County has joined on and will help magnify the message,” said O’Connell, who is the commissioners’ liaison to the college. “By all of us working together, we can make sure no one suffering from mental illnesses or substance use disorder feels shame about their condition,” added Hopson, who is the board’s liaison for Human Services. “The message we’re sending is that help and support is available and that all of Burlington County is behind you.” In addition to joining the stigma-free movement, the RCBC Office of Student Support publishes an online list of mental health and stress reduction resources

to assist students and staff members. “Rowan College at Burlington County provides students with the resources they need to succeed both in the classroom and with their own health and wellbeing,” said RCBC Board Chair Robin Walton. “The RCBC Board of Trustees is proud to declare the college a stigma-free space for all individuals and encourage students who have a mental illness or substance abuse to take advantage of the resources available at the college and throughout the county.” Burlington County created a Stigma-Free Task Force last year to develop recommendations for how the county could eliminate stigma and the commissioners adopted a resolution designating all of Burlington County to be stigma-free. In doing so, the commissioners also encouraged all municipalities, schools, businesses and nonprofits to join the

campaign. In addition to RCBC, the Burlington County Association of School Administrators, the City of Burlington and the Burlington City School District, the Lenape Regional High School District, Cinnaminson School District, Pemberton Township and Mount Laurel have each passed resolutions supporting the Stigma-Free County initiative. Mount Holly and Evesham are expected to pass resolutions for their towns this week. State Senator Troy Singleton also praised the college for joining the county’s coalition. “Ending the stigma around mental health conditions and substance abuse is critical so that those who need the help, seek it out,” said Singleton. “I applaud Rowan College at Burlington County for joining with our county leaders in ensuring that this campus is stigma-free and a safe space for these students.”

Versatile Violet: Moorestown’s Marta leads team at plate and on mound Sophomore continues to build on an impressive freshman season By MATTHEW SHINKLE Sports Editor

It was in the middle of gym class last year when Moorestown softball head coach Bill Mulvihill was first introduced to the freshman he would rely on heavily throughout the 2020’21 season. Violet Marta, a softball player for much of her life before reaching Moorestown High School, was eager to make the team and help however she could. Fortunately for the Quakers, all Marta did was pitch 64 of 82 innings last season, striking out 63 opposing batters while allowing just 17 earned runs. She also recorded the thirdmost hits on the team and thirdmost RBIs while hitting in the heart of the lineup, a tremendous amount of responsibility for a freshman. But according to Mulvihill, she didn’t play like one. “She came in and didn’t throw like you’d expect a freshman to,” Mulvihill said. “She had a lot of control of her pitches and was really poised on the mound despite her age. Whether the other team was hitting her or not in a

Moorestown sophomore Violet Marta leads the Quakers in most offensive and pitching categories this season, a major reason for her team's recent eight-game winning streak.

given game, nothing ever really got to her, she never changed her demeanor.” So Mulvihill and his assistant coaches were understandably excited to see what Marta would do as she got older and more comfortable at the highschool level. Now in her sophomore year, Marta has continued to grow and take on even more responsibility, both in the lineup and on the mound for Moorestown. Through the first 14 games this season, the Quakers are 9-5, in large part due to Marta’s presence both in the lineup and

on the mound. Having pitched 83 innings so far, she recently reached her 100th strikeout on the year, while also leading the team with 21 hits, 11 runs scored, 21 RBIs and four home runs. Adjusting from travel to highschool softball last year was slightly challenging at first due to the age gap, according to Marta. In preparing for her freshman season last year, she expected to battle for the starting pitching job, but after the first practice, Marta realized what was best for the team would be evident before the first game of the season, and she looked

forward to helping however she could. “I immediately thought that the one senior that I knew pitched was going to be my enemy going into the season, because I wanted that job,” Marta said. “I kept telling myself that I had to get ready and try to impress the coaches to show I should pitch. But she actually wanted to play first base over pitching anyway, so after that, I was able to relax a lot more than I expected.” Marta didn’t stray too far from throwing strictly fastballs and changeups last year, but

@SJSportsWeekly

looked forward to adding more pitches to her repertoire as a sophomore. She added three new pitches to her arsenal this season. In terms of her value to the team, Mulvihill said it’s not hard to describe. “Since day one this season, she’s been the complete player,” he said. “She’s leading the team in hits and RBIs while pitching almost every game. She’s doing everything for us. “She’s having a great year.” Having excelled at such a young age with the program, Marta has the opportunity to break a few records before her time with the Quakers is up. According to Mulvihill, Moorestown has only two softball players who have recorded at least 100 hits: Caroline Muccifori with 112 (2014-’17) and Erika Heffernen with 106 (2017-’19). Regardless of individual accomplishments, Marta is focused on the team of mostly sophomores growing together. After a 13-10 record last year, Moorestown has a good opportunity to surpass last season’s final record. “I definitely thought we were going to do better this season than we were last year,” Marta said. “Last year, it felt like a lot of us younger girls on the team were still getting comfortable out there because we were freshmen. “We had the chance to learn from a few seniors last year and we’re putting to use what they taught us.”

Following a strong start on the year – which at one point included a six-game winning streak – the Chiefs defeated Delran 9-5 in the first round of the 48th annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic, with Brown and Cheeseman being two of the leading reasons for Cherokee’s opening-round win. Brown hit a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first inning to set the offensive tone early on, giving Cherokee a lead it would not relinquish. The junior would end the day with two hits, three RBIs and a stolen base, while also playing stellar defense at second. After a freshman season lost to the pandemic, Brown played just a handful of games last year before suffering a hip fracture midway through the spring. It would limit him to just 21 atbats his sophomore season. “I just try to enjoy every moment I can,” he said. “I know firsthand that it can be taken away from me just like that. I just take it one game at a time. I’d been looking forward to playing for Cherokee ever since I was a kid, and I went to all the games when I was younger. “So I don’t take this for granted at all.” Through Cherokee’s first 15 games of the season, Brown leads the Chiefs in hits, home runs and runs scored, all from the leadoff spot. Coach Marc Petragnani – in his 14th season at the helm for Cherokee – said

Cherokee senior Jeremy Cheeseman pitched 5.1 innings for the Chiefs in a 9-5 win over Delran in the opening round of the Diamond Classic.

watching Brown come back this season and play even better than he did last year while moving to the top of the lineup has been something special to watch. “He’s a catalyst for this team; we moved him to the leadoff spot at the start of the year, and he’s just produced,” Petragnani said. “It was very upsetting to see him get hurt last year, but we moved him to the leadoff

hole this season and he’s produced, just like a future Division 1 baseball player should produce in the leadoff hole.” Cheeseman started on the mound for Cherokee in the opening round of the Diamond Classic, against Delran, going 5.1 innings with two earned runs on five hits while striking out eight batters and walking two. After just 23 total pitches on the

mound last season, Cheeseman made his return to pitching this season after having stepped away from the position years ago following a broken shoulder. In recovery, doctors recommended that the then-eighth grader not try pitching again until he was fully grown, so as not to reaggravate the injury. Coming into his senior year, Cheeseman was ready to get

back on the rubber. “I’d been itching to get back to pitching again really since my sophomore year, and I’m loving getting to do this again,” he said. “I couldn’t wait to get to do this again. I feel most confident when I’m on the mound.” Despite the coach’s worry coming into the season, Cherokee has had great luck finding reliable and capable arms this spring, following the 2021 graduation of three seniors who threw a combined 108.1 innings. Seniors Shane Sax and Blake Weinstein have stepped into larger roles on the mound this season than they did last year. The addition of Cheeseman to the staff, as well as those other arms, has Cherokee off to a 11-4 start. “We knew we had a lot of offensive talent and that our pitching might be a question mark, because we didn’t have a lot of innings returning,” Petragnani said. “But early on, our pitching showed to be a strength. And it’s just kept up that way.” Last season, Cherokee jumped out to a 13-3 start before losing six of its last eight, something both the coach and returning players remember very well. As June gets closer, the team agrees that it can’t afford to get comfortable or complacent. “I think we’re a good team that needs to keep getting better, because the competition we play will also just keep getting better,” Petragnani said. “I like the potential of this team, but we still have a whole lot of work to do.” “We didn’t get as much done last year as we should have,” Brown acknowledged. “Coming into this year, we said we were going to be all in. That’s our motto. So we need to keep playing like a team and take it one game at a time – and see how far that takes us.”
