About the state’s ban on plastic

B

y now, most of us have likely heard conversations about New Jersey’s new single-use plastic ban, instituted two weeks ago and the strictest in the nation. Some of the talk comes in the form of questions, such as: Can I still use plastic for my household trash? (Yes). Can I still buy Styrofoam cups? (No) What about dog doo? (See below). Some people are frustrated, some mad, especially when they find themselves at the supermarket checkout without a parcel because their newly purchased, allowed bags are in the trunk of the car. It’s a little early to gauge the ban’s overall effect. But anecdotal reporting from Advance Media suggests people would like the usable bags to be free, though you can buy one for $1 to $1.50 in many grocery stores and retailers. And they’d like to see more highly visible reminders of the ban, in store parking lots for instance. Like anything else we’re forced into, we’ll get used to the ban. But it helps to know more details: • A single-use plastic carryout bag is defined by the ban as one made of plastic but not reusable.

In YOUR opinion Let us know your thoughts by sending a letter to the editor to the email address at the right.

• Prohibited are almost all plastic carryout bags like those found at grocery stores; paper bags, but only in larger supermarkets or big-box stores with sizable grocery sections, such as Target and Walmart; and most plastic foam food containers and cups. (A restriction on plastic straws went into effect in November: They can only be provided at a customer’s request.) • All New Jersey retail, grocery, and pharmacy stores, along with restaurants and other food service businesses, are banned from giving out single-use plastic bags, as well as foam containers, with exceptions. Trash can liners, heavy-duty contractor disposal bags and other plastic garbage bags will still be available, as will sandwich and freezer bags. Again, we’re mostly talking about the smaller carry-out versions. There are some caveats. Paper bags such as those for lawn care or leaf collection will still be sold in grocery

stores and other big-box retailers like Home Depot. The Styrofoam ban includes vegetable trays and egg cartons. (Joining that list in 2024 will be containers for raw meat, poultry or fish and small cups of two ounces or less for hot foods.) Now about that dog doo. Small plastic bags you may already have at home can be used for that purpose – or for kitty litter – as well as for bathroom trash. But once you run out, you’ll need other options like biodegradable bags; small paper ones; newspaper; composting; or possibly flushing the waste, according to nj.com. Other plastic exemptions are bags used to wrap meat, produce bags for fruits and vegetables and other loose items, deli bags for sliced or prepared foods like lunch meat, dry-cleaning bags and newspaper bags. (That last one will come in handy for the dog doo, too.) For more information on the ban, visit nj.gov. For a list of businesses impacted and items banned, go to https://nj.gov/dep/plastic-ban-law/ docs/ list-of-establishments-banneditems.pdf

Mental Health Awareness Month in Gloucester County In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Month, Gloucester County Division of Human & Special Services reminds all residents that mental health services are available. The Of fice of Mental Health collaborates with state and local partners for the planning and resource development for our citizens with mental health issues. “The last two years put a tremendous amount of stress

on the entire country. The stress and anxiety you are feeling is normal, and professionals are available to help talk to you if you need assistance,” Director Frank J. DiMarco said. “It’s important to remember to check in with yourself and evaluate how the pandemic and the many changes that come with it are making you feel.” Gloucester County’s mental health services have put together a resource page to

help you find the right contact for your needs. The Mental Health Office also maintains the Recovery Library. The Recovery Library is Pat Deegan's on-demand online collection of inspiration and tools to support recovery and wellness, with thousands of multimedia resources. This library features firstperson accounts of mental health recovery, addiction recovery, and wellness; mental health, physical health,

and substance use resources; worksheets, calendars and pre-designed group content; no advertisements and you can download, print or favorite resources. This service is completely free after registering and can be accessed by any internetready computer or mobile device. “Many individuals suffer with Mental Illness,” said see AWARENESS, page 11

Seeds of history: Bank helps preserve area fruits, vegetables Burlington County founder builds on lifetime of growing experience By MATTHEW SHINKLE The Sun When Jeff Quattrone was growing up in Turnersville in the 1960s, his father started a garden in the backyard filled with fruits and vegetables. Over the course of that childhood, organic gardening and preserving what his family grew in the garden each harvest became a way of life for Quattrone. Although much of the products came from already grown plants moved to the soil in their family garden, he grew increasingly interested in the process of both growing food and recognizing the differences between the unique varieties of fruits and vegetables. Please recycle this newspaper.

Nearly a half-century later, Quattrone is the proud founder of the Library Seed Bank, an organization he started in 2014 to preserve fruits and vegetables native to the South Jersey area. “It felt like a great way to make my voice heard and make work for some change with something I feel very passionate about,” he said. Quattrone launched the bank following a year of research on the concept and logistics roles that seed libraries play across the United States, which at the time were a relatively new concept. “The goal of the Library Seed Bank is to connect the public to seed and agriculture history in New Jersey through seed libraries by bringing seeds back to the counties and states they originated in,” Quattrone said. “The local seed libraries provide a permanent home for this

through community-based programs.” The seed bank provides libraries in South Jersey with archived collections of preserved seeds for fruits and vegetables that interested residents can request to grow at their homes. According to Quattrone, participating locations include all six branches of the Gloucester County Library System, the Monroe Township Free Library System and the Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences, as well as other entities. While each library branch or entity operates within its own limitations, Quattrone acts as a sort of consultant with the various locations that agree to serve as seed libraries across Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. He has assisted in the preservation and historical documentation of various fruits

and vegetables native to the area, giving residents the ability to grow seeds that will thrive in the local environment. Since starting the seed bank, Quattrone has spoken at various community events both to share his knowledge on the topic and to gauge and generate interest in the topic. “It’s all about the public … They are essential in all of this,” he said. “My interest in connecting the public to seed libraries is the best way I’ve found to get people interested in saving certain seeds. “It’s something people have really started to embrace since I first started in 2014,” Quattrone added. “It’s grown so much over the past few years.” The topic of food sovereignty is one that’s also grown in recent years in light of the pandemic. Quattrone hopes that through his work, more families across

South Jersey will embrace the lifestyle, both for their own betterment but also to preserve the history of native fruits and vegetables. “I think there’s a lot of power in securing your own food and securing your own seeds, and sometimes that gets lost in all this,” he said. “With the quick shutdown that we saw take place when COVID emerged, there were over 600 communities that had their own seed libraries, and I’d say were ahead of the curve in a way … “ … There’s a real power in seeds and a lot of the public overlooks (it) at a quick glance,” Quattrone added, “but it’s a movement that’s continuing to grow.” For more information on the Library Seed Bank and where to receive your own seeds, visit https://www.libraryseedbank. info/.

Tropicana Atlantic City to debut eight food and drink outlets this year By CHUCK DARROW For The Sun If Tropicana Atlantic City is looking for a new marketing slogan, “Let’s Eat!” will definitely work. That’s because between this month and the end of the year, the 41-year-old casino-hotel will be introducing eight new hospitality operations, five of which will offer food service. The quintet of eateries includes: *Wild Honey Smokehouse and Tavern: The 5,000-square-foot casual-dining restaurant showcases various regional barbeque styles from across the country (e.g. St. Louis, Memphis). It recently had its “soft opening;” the grand opening is set for Memorial Day weekend. *Ossu Japanese Tavern: The focus is on small-plate items like yakitori and sushi (opens Memorial Day weekend). *Hash House A Go Go: The popular national chain (there’s one at the Moorestown Mall) that’s celebrated for its “twisted farm food” and large breakfast menu (opens this summer). *The Royce Social Hall: Billed as a combination American beer hall and “adult rec room,” this 10,000-squarefoot space will offer casual, shareable dishes along with a variety of games and activities including ping-pong, bowling and shuffleboard. It will occupy the long-empty space that originally housed the ill-fated Sound of Philadelphia restaurant/performance venue (opens this fall). *il Verdi: Atlantic City’s third-longest continuously operating casino restaurant (after Capriccio at Resorts CasinoHotel and Nero’s Italian Steakhouse at Caesars Atlantic City) will move from its smallish longtime home in a somewhat hidden corner of the casino floor to a much larger space overlooking the beach and ocean that was most recently home to celebri-chef Jose Garces’ Olon (opens this fall). The remaining three new spots are all adult hangouts: The Purple Zebra,

And, during the last two years, we’ve taken some time to step back and reevaluate our [overall] strategy.” Rippy added that while five of the operations are owned and operated by the Trop, three—Hash House A Go Go, Gin Rickey’s and Royce Social Hall—are from outside entities, and that finding the right match “took us a long time.” In addition to the changes at il Verdi, Tropicana patrons will notice that while Ossu is pretty much offering fare in line with the space’s previous tenant, the Garces-run Okatshe, the new dining room will be a lot easier for guests to find: Okatshe’s gimmick was that to enter it, patrons had to walk through what appeared to be a Japanese candy store (the restaurant was hidden behind the far wall). Rippy acknowledged this speakeasy-like approach was “cool,” but ultimately not practical, as it made the restaurant inaccessible to anyone who wasn’t already aware of its existence. As such, he said, “We’re going to tear off the former candy store and turn it into more of a formal vestibule, and move our hosts out front so they can talk to guests as they come by. You’ll be able to see directly into the restaurant rather than having to know what’s hidden back there.” Ultimately, Rippy suggested, the goal of the upgrades and additions is to return Tropicana to the operating philosophy it introduced in 2004, when it opened The Quarter, its Havana-themed retail, dining and entertainment complex. The idea, he said, was “one-stop. You come in, you have dinner, you have a nightclub, you can see a show and you can do everything underneath one roof. And I think we’ve gotten away from that over the last two years. And it’ll be nice to get back into the full swing of things, where we have as many offerings as we did before.”

Graduate: Narayan stands out continued from page 7 After discussing opportunities with her guidance counselor and realizing early graduation was feasible, Narayan went to work, going through the list of requirements one by one. Narayan’s mother Prachi supported her through the process and helped her daughter take the right steps. “She showed interest in graduating early, and we sent the request at school through proper channels,” Prachi said. “She was interviewed by a committee and was allowed to pursue it, seeing her determination.” Narayan’s motivation was about more than jumpstarting a career; she wanted to feel a sense of purpose, and putting full effort into her schoolwork made her feel like she belonged. “All my life I struggled with mental illness while also trying to fit in,” she acknowledged. “No matter how hard I tried, I just felt so alone. The only thing that would keep me going

or provide me with a feeling of comfort was knowing that I was good enough at school and academics. “With the way I had been feeling and struggling, I honestly did not see a future for myself.” That’s why Narayan became emotional when she heard from Deptford’s board of education that she was approved for early graduation. “Nobody truly knows how encouraging and assuring it is to know that what you have worked so hard for is finally getting the expected results and outcome,” she noted. Finishing high school in three years has not been accomplished by a Deptford High School student since 2008, according to school district communications coordinator Sal Randazzo. “Satisfying all graduation requirements in three years is definitely a challenge, due please see GRADUATE, page 15

Lucca leaves a legacy at Washington Township Senior’s 87 goals this season put her among top 25 in the state By MATTHEW SHINKLE Sports Editor

Marissa Lucca is in the midst of a historic year for the Minutemaids. Coming into the 2021-’22 season, the senior-heavy team boasted 12 players in their final season on the lacrosse field for Washington Township. The large class has played together on various teams over the years, and they developed a strong sense of chemistry and familiarity with each other as they entered the season. With Lucca the team’s highest-scoring returner last season at 26 goals – behind then-senior Sydney Brown’s 34 – head coach Sandy Stockl expected she would take the most shots and score the most goals by season's end. But she couldn’t have predicted the rate at which Lucca would do the latter. “She knew what she needed to do coming into the season, and she’s really stepped up to another notch entirely,” Stockl said. “She’s the real deal.” Following the team’s final regular season game — a big 19-8 win over Haddon Heights — Lucca had scored 87 goals in 16 games, an average of just over five per game. Her production has put her among the top 25 scorers as the regular season winds down.

MATTHEW SHINKLE/South Jersey Sports Weekly

Washington Township senior Marissa Lucca is among state leaders in both goals and points, having scored 87 and 102, respectively, following the conclusion of the regular season.

As one of the team’s senior captains, Stockl said Lucca has done what it takes to make her teammates better on the field, setting up scoring chances for others or positioning herself to receive timely passes while near the net. “She’s got quiet confidence;

she’s not one of those people that says a lot verbally, but instead she speaks with her play and takes accountability and responsibility individually and for the team when things might not go right,” Stockl said. “She took a big jump from last year to this year in terms of do-

ing what it takes to make others around her better on the field,” she added. “And it shows.” Lucca didn’t expect to score nearly as much as she has this season; her 87 goals are the most in a single season for the Minutemaids in at least the past decade. Her varsity and club lacrosse

@SJSportsWeekly

experience have made Lucca a threat on the field, allowing her success as plays develop in game. But even more so, she believes her unique left-hand play also had a role in her contributions. “I’m definitely surprised I’ve scored this much this season, but with the chemistry we have on the field, I’ve just gotten the ball in a lot of good spots to make stuff happen, and the experience I have has helped make that happen,” she said. “Plus, with me being [left-handed], it’s kind of been something we’ve been able to use to our advantage in drawing up plays and taking shots.” Lucca is headed to TCNJ to play lacrosse under Coach Sharon Pfluger, whom Stockl also played under at the same school. The relationships and culture that players like Lucca and others have enabled over the years in the girls lacrosse program, Stockl said, have stood out as the coach finishes her 29th season with the program. “She’s left an imprint on this program,” Stockl said of Lucca. “When she leaves, they know what the gold standard is … People have heard her message. I have a daughter in eighth grade that’s come to a bunch of practices and games over the years and knows [Lucca], and she puts forth a great example for the type of student athlete she should want to be.”

Graduate: Narayan stands out continued from page 12 to the condensed amount of time in which the course work was completed,” he explained. “What I think makes it really stand out in this case is the choice of courses over those three years, and the sustained quality of work produced in those courses. “The district is very proud of Yukta for this achievement.” Following graduation, Narayan plans to attend Oregon State University and double major in

apparel design and business administration. That choice came from her personal interests in both business and the fashion industry. As graduation nears, she is ready to take this next step in her academic career. “Knowing that I excelled at academics throughout my life, I never doubted that I could do it,” Narayan said. “I finally put trust in myself and told myself I am worth it in every way possible.”
