‘Keeping it real’

Hillsborough Township Public Schools’ seeking members for strategic plan focus groups

The community can participate in the development of Hillsborough Township Public Schools’ new five-year – 2023 to 2028 –Strategic Plan.

Strategic planning is the process of setting goals and creating a blueprint of a shared vision for an organization’s future. One of the first steps will be to engage with a series of Focus Groups on Oct. 4 and 5.

The last plan was developed from 2017 to 2022. The vision five years ago was “Learning empowers life beyond Hillsborough School District” and the mission was “to provide a superior education for all students so they will lead us successfully and responsibly into the future.”

Education Resources Information Center.

At the early childhood education level, the sub-sets included early childhood enrichment, fullday kindergarten, and universal preschool.

At the high school level, the sub-sets included college and career preparation, high school as a community center, expanded concurrent college enrollment, innovative STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and vocational education academies, and the reorganization of kindergarten to 12th grade structure.

The plan also included a focus on the performing arts center as an asset for the school and community.

Darryl McDaniels, the hiphop pioneer known worldwide as DMC, visited Rider University this summer to participate in a readthrough of a new stage play based on his life.

The play, which was written by Dr. Sheena Howard, a Rider professor of communication, dramatizes McDaniels’ rise out of Queens, N.Y., as a founding member of Run-DMC, as well as his subsequent personal quest to find his birth mother following revelations that he was adopted, according to a release through Rider University.

“Darryl has a story that is tumultuous but also inspiring because he came through it in the end as a healthy individual,” Howard said.

McDaniels stresses that, while the play takes his life as its basis, its themes transcend the particulars of his biography. “It’s about imagination, creativity, art, comic books, rock ‘n’ roll, hip hop, identity, secrets and most importantly how our unfortunate situations don’t define us — we do,” he said. “It’s literally a superhero story.”

The read-through of the play took place in June at Rider, giving Howard and McDaniels an opportunity to hear the script read aloud by a cast for the first time and gain insight into the story and its ultimate production on stage.

Howard and McDaniels were joined by professional actors from Philadelphia and New York City as well as several students from Rider, including those in the University’s theatre program.

Haley Hartline, a senior who is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting for film, television and theatre, read portions of the part for the character based on McDaniels’ biological mother. Following the reading, she also had the chance, like all participants, to discuss what was working and what wasn’t in the script and to brainstorm ideas related to the stage production.

“Usually as a performer, you don’t have much of a say about the script, but I liked the collaborative nature of the read-through and how Dr. Howard and Darryl wanted to hear different perspectives from everyone,” she said.

“The moment you walked into the room, you could tell he had a very big presence, even when he wasn’t speaking, but he was such a kind person and very receptive.”

The read-through helped McDaniels see the story from another perspective — from the outside in.

“It’s more dynamic to see other people tell the story and live it,” he said. “A lot of things I missed myself I can now get a realization of.”

McDaniels found instant success when Run-DMC released its debut album in 1984. The group would go on to shape the look and sound of hip-hop that dominated American music for decades, but despite his enormous influence as an artist, McDaniels struggled with depression and substance abuse. Another personal challenge surfaced when, while working on his autobiography, he discovered that his origins as an adopted child had been kept hidden from him.

VH1 captured McDaniels’ quest to find his birth mother in a 2006 documentary. Parts of his life story have also already been portrayed elsewhere, including his 2001 autobiography and a 90-page graphic novel, which reimagined DMC as a comic book superhero. Theater represents a new medium for him, as well as for Howard, who in addition to her scholarship on Black comics has written for Marvel and DC Comics.

McDaniels was drawn to tell his story on stage because of the inherently intimate — and live — nature of theater. “In the theater you can have more of an emotional connection with the audience,” he said. “It allows the audience to be there and present in real time.”

Naa’san Carr, a senior political science major who is the president of Rider’s Student Government Association, read the part based on McDaniels’ older brother. He found it surreal but enthralling to be working directly with a living legend on a story based on his own life.

“At certain points,” Carr said, “he would nod and agree with the portrayal or he would reminisce and tell us how it really was, how to say certain things. It was really cool to have him there to tell those details.”

And despite the superhero elements of McDaniels’ story, his humanity was ever present during the reading.

“I think that DMC is a really down-to-earth person,” Carr said. “He kept it real with us the whole time.”

The focus groups at the time focused on a number items, according to the report developed by the

For those interested in participating in a Focus Group, there is a form they can fill at on the district website at www.htps.us. The Focus Groups will contain approximately 15 to 20 members.

Somerset County first in state to deploy EV vehicles for community transit

The Somerset County Transportation Division announced the deployment of three new electric (EV) paratransit vehicles which began carrying passengers in July.

Somerset County is the first county in the state to use EV vehicles for community transit, according to a release through the county.

The Somerset County Transportation Division estimates that the three new electric paratransit vehicles will reduce annual carbon emissions by approximately 30 metric tons while saving the county approximately $20,000 per year in fuel and maintenance.

“We are thrilled to acquire these

new electric accessible vehicles to help with transportation services to Somerset County seniors and residents with disabilities,” said Commissioner Melonie Marano, liaison to Transportation. “These and future EV vehicles in Somerset County’s fleet not only help us to meet both Governor [Phil] Murphy’s electric vehicle initiative and President [Joe] Biden’s no or low vehicle emissions plan, but it also helps us reduce our carbon footprint.”

The cost of the three new electric vehicles is $97,000, compared to a cost of $105,000 to $110,000 for the types of gasoline powered

ton. Break away from your office or home to enjoy live music (Yes, live!) as well as food trucks! Weather will dictate whether the event will take place. All announcements will be posted on the Mercer Cemetery at Trenton’s Facebook page.

Located in downtown Trenton, Mercer Cemetery at Trenton is significant for its connection with local history and its embodiment of 19th century urban cemetery ideals including highly decorative monuments and its use as a greenspace. It has a unique legacy as the first non-secular cemetery in New Jersey. Organized in 1843 from parcels of farmland on the edge of town, the Cemetery was popular for many of Trenton’s important families and business leaders until the end of the century with over 4,000 persons buried within. The cemetery, now being converted into a public park, features a variety of high-style monuments and simple gravestones with motifs and sculptural forms prevalent in the Victorian era including weeping willows, flora, hands, urns, funerary cloth, and masonic symbols.

Participating food trucks include The Latest Dish, Shabazz Fish & Chips, Chic Gourmet Empanadas, Ice Dreamz Water Ice, and H&S Ice Cream.

Fridays at Mercer Cemetery at Trenton will began on Sept. 1. Next dates are Sept. 15, 22, and 29. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Girls on the Run

The 22nd season of Girls on the Run of Central New Jersey (GOTRCNJ) is gearing up for the fall season.

Volunteer coaches are needed in Somerset, Middlesex and Monmouth Counties. Please reach out to donna.york@girlsontherun.org for more information.

Coaches do not need to be runners or athletic. The goal of the coaches is not to teach the girls how to run. The key takeaway from the curriculum is for the girls to learn about confidence, character, caring, connection, and contribution to community. The girls learn to build self-worth, recognize their inner power to make positive decisions in their lives, while celebrating their uniqueness. These dynamic lessons instill valuable life skills including the important connection between emotional and physical health, There is still time to volunteer as a coach or to start a new site for the Fall season. For

information go to www.gotrcnj.org or contact donna.york@girlsontherun.org.

By Friday, Sept. 15

Hillsborough Township has opened its third annual Scarecrow Festival. Beginning Oct. 1, scarecrows will be maintaining vigilance on the grounds of the Hillsborough Municipal Complex.

All Township residents, businesses, organizations, classrooms, and sports teams are invited to start planning. Over the past two years, about 40 scarecrows lined “Scarecrow Lane” along the rain garden at the Municipal Complex, and organizers are hoping to see even more crows aloft in 2023.

This annual fall event has been growing in popularity since its inception in 2021. Among the creative, handcrafted crows that stood watch over the parking lot in previous years were pirate crows, police crows, Rapunzel, Minions, storybook characters, and many traditional scare-type crows.

Interested parties can register by filling out the form located on the Hillsborough Township website, Facebook page, and Mayor’s eNews and Experience Hillsborough Newsletters. A registration link will also be sent to Hillsborough businesses, which are encouraged to use this unique opportunity as a way to forge new relationships. Registration deadline is Sept. 15.

Residents will be able to vote on their favorite scarecrows throughout the month of October through QR codes located throughout the area or via a form located on the Township website.

The scarecrows will be on display throughout the month of October.

vehicles the county previously used. Somerset County will be saving about $10,000 on the initial vehicle cost, totaling $30,000 for this round of buses. This puts the combined savings in the first year alone of $50,000 and continued annual savings in the tens of thousands of dollars.

“Advocating for and implementing energy efficiency and conservation solutions is important to all of us in Somerset County,” said Commissioner Paul Drake, long-time member of the Energy Council. “This is an amazing opportunity to continue to make the county sustainable and create a cleaner future while reducing costs for our residents.”

New Jersey Transit lauded Somerset County’s move into electric vehicles in

their S-RIDES newsletter sent to its county partners: “Somerset County has long been recognized for their commitment to their community transportation operations serving senior citizens, people with disabilities, and the general public. By deploying the next evolution of transportation, Somerset County further demonstrates this commitment to the population it serves. With the rise in concerns about climate change and the need to transition from traditional fossil fuel-powered vehicles, the introduction of electric vehicles marks a turning point in the county’s efforts to embrace clean energy solutions.”

Ignoring Shoulder Pain Can Lead to More Serious Injury

Staying active by participating in sports like tennis or pickleball is good for your overall health.

However, sports and other activities that involve repetitive actions or sudden movements that can lead to falls, can often result in shoulder injuries.

If you experience shoulder pain, don’t just play through it. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further damage.

At Penn Medicine Princeton Health, orthopaedic doctors offer a wide range of effective treatment options for shoulder injuries from physical therapy to minimally invasive surgery.

A Complex Joint

The shoulder is a complex joint made up of the humerus, scapula, and clavicle and affords the greatest motion of any joint in the body. It comprises more than 30 supporting muscles and ligaments, including the rotator cuff.

The rotator cuff acts as a dynamic stabilizer that maintains the humeral head (ball) in the glenoid (socket) and enables you to raise and rotate your arm.

Each year, millions of people of all ages go to the doctor for shoulder problems, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).

Common Injuries

Shoulder injuries more often involve the soft tissues that make up the shoulder rather than the bones, though fractures do occur with more violent impacts. Some of the most common shoulder injuries include:

• Rotator cuff tears. Most rotator cuff tears start out slowly and progress to partial or full tears over time. This degeneration occurs naturally with age and can also be associated with repetitive overhead use such as with sports like tennis, baseball and swimming. Less often, rotator cuff tears can be an acute injury caused by overstretching or lifting something too heavy.

• Dislocation. Because the shoulder joint is the body’s most mobile joint, it is also the most common to dislocate, meaning the ball of the joint pops out of the socket.

Shoulder dislocations are often a result of a fall or other physical trauma. If you dislocate your shoulder once, you are at greater risk for repeat dislocations, a condition called chronic shoulder instability, especially if you are younger.

• Impingement. Shoulder impingement occurs when the tendons in the shoulder become inflamed and rub


against the undersurface of the scapula bone called the acromion. This repetitive rubbing can lead to tendonitis and inflammation.

Warning Signs

In general, pain, especially pain at night, is the most common sign of a chronic shoulder injury.

Other signs of a chronic shoulder injury include:

• Stiffness and inability to rotate your arm normally.

• Inability to raise your arm.

• Feeling that the shoulder could pop out or slide out of the socket.

• Lack of strength in the shoulder that inhibits daily activities.

Signs of an acute shoulder injury, include:

• Shoulder appears deformed.

• Intense pain in the arm or shoulder.

• Shoulder cannot be moved or used.

• Shoulder suddenly swells.

• Arm or hand is numb or weak.

• Arm cannot be lifted.

If you experience an acute shoulder injury, seek immediate medical attention. As the AAOS notes, any discomfort that does not improve with rest, ice and anti-inflammatory medications is a reason to see a shoulder specialist.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Most shoulder injuries can be diagnosed with a history of the patient’s issue coupled with a physical exam and imaging tests such as X-rays and MRI.

Treatment may include physical therapy, cortisone injections and activity modification. Often treatment does not involve surgery, but if it does, most procedures at Princeton Health — even shoulder replacements — are usually performed using minimally invasive techniques that result in less discomfort following surgery and quicker healing. Most patients go home the same day as their procedure.


Though some wear and tear to the shoulder is inevitable as you age, there are a few things you can do to keep your shoulders healthy and help prevent injury.

• Warm up. No matter if you’re headed to the pickleball court or to the swimming pool, always take time to warm up. Do some full body movements such as jumping jacks or jogging in place followed by some gentle stretching.

• Include a regular muscle-strengthening routine in your exercise regime. You don’t have

to lift heavy weights to get the benefits of strength training. Even light weights can help keep your muscles strong and your joints in balance.

• Work on balance and strengthening your core. By maintaining good balance and a strong core, you can help reduce the likelihood of falling and injuring your shoulder.

• For young athletes especially, participate in a variety of sports throughout the year rather than focusing on one specific sport and limit the number of teams you play on to prevent overuse injuries.

• Practice safe lifting techniques. When lifting heavy objects, bend at your knees and keep your back straight. Lift with your legs and avoid twisting while lifting.

• Take breaks. If your job, sport or hobby involves repeated overhead motion, be sure to take regular breaks to rest and stretch your shoulders.

Too often, people ignore shoulder pain until it becomes unbearable or leads to more serious injury. However, the earlier it is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. If you have shoulder pain, don’t wait to see a doctor. Prompt medical treatment can help you return you to the activities you love without the pain.

New Jersey’s rarest turtles face many threats

When strolling through your local park this summer, you may have noticed turtles sunning themselves on logs or poking their heads up in lakes and ponds. Chances are they’re painted turtles or red-eared sliders, two of the most common species in New Jersey. Painted turtles are native to the state, while red-eared sliders were introduced from the south but can survive here because winters have gotten milder due to climate change.

Unfortunately, not all of New Jersey’s turtles are faring as well. Several native turtle species are struggling to maintain their populations in the face of multiple challenges, including habitat loss and fragmentation, migration routes that traverse busy roads, predators trying to devour their eggs, and poachers who illegally capture them for the pet trade.

Four of New Jersey’s rarest turtle species are the bog turtle, wood turtle, spotted turtle and Northern diamondback terrapin.

The palm-sized bog turtle, one of the world’s smallest, is the subject of a new book by Robert Zappalorti, an environmental consultant and one of the world’s top amphibian and reptile experts, who has studied them for over 50 years. Bog turtles are listed as a federally-threatened species, and New Jersey is one of their strongholds.

“Zap” practically lived at the Staten Island Zoo as a

youth and later served as the zoo’s reptile keeper, learning from experts of the time. In The Bog Turtle: Natural History and Conservation, he provides a comprehensive reference resource on the turtle’s life history, behavior, habitat, diet, biology and reproduction. The book also details efforts to protect and conserve bog turtle populations.

The state’s Endangered and Nongame Species program estimates that there are about 2,000 bog turtles left in New Jersey. “That’s not a lot, considering,” said Zappalorti.

Historically, bog turtles were found in wetlands in 15 New Jersey counties. But as development has spread, they’ve disappeared in urbanized counties like Bergen, Camden and Middlesex. About 15 years ago, a healthy bog turtle population in Burlington County was wiped out by illegal farming practices. The largest populations are now found in rural parts of Sussex, Warren, Morris, Passaic and Salem counties.

“In protected habitats, they’re holding their own,” Zappalorti said, noting that New Jersey is taking steps to safeguard those habitats. For example, if surrounding forests grow so high as to shade and cool their nesting sites, bog turtle eggs won’t hatch. The Endangered and Nongame Species Program is working to slow forest succession in known bog turtle habitats to keep the sun shining on nesting areas.

Female bog turtles lay their eggs on tussocks within bogs and fens. Though hidden by grasses and moss, the eggs are highly vulnerable to animal predators. To increase the survival odds of eggs and hatchlings, conservation scientists place cages around known nests to keep predators away.

Bog turtles have a very small home range, with most spending their entire lives (which can be well over 50 years) on only one to two acres. Before extensive human development arrived on the landscape, male bog turtles occasionally would wander from their home ranges and follow stream corridors to mate with other bog turtle populations. These days, most populations are isolated from one another, preventing the gene pool from diversifying.

ted turtle populations.

Hamilton explained that spotted turtles have disappeared from many locations due to illegal collecting for the pet trade, and the burden of proof is on conservationists to demonstrate that spotted turtles are declining and need more protection. “Before we can get any protection, we need data,” he said. “Right now, we don’t have anything close to a population estimate.”

Wood turtles are a stream-oriented species that uses a mosaic of wetland and upland habitats. A threatened species in New Jersey, wood turtles require clean streams running through meadows, woods, and farmlands. While wood turtles are typically found in or near their home waters, they often wander far afield. Every spring they migrate from upland forests where they hibernate to the stream habitats where they will breed. As with many other reptiles and amphibians, their migration routes often place them in harm’s way when crossing roads.

Two decades ago, citizen action to protect a wood turtle population in Bedminster, Somerset County, led to the construction of one of the state’s first “turtle tunnels” beneath a busy roadway. Since then, turtle tunnels have been built in other places – but more are still needed!

Diamondback terrapins are the only turtles in the world that spend their entire lives in brackish coastal marshes, where freshwater and saltwater mix. Northern diamondback terrapins, the subspecies found in New Jersey, are in decline.

Terrapins were once very common and provided food for Native Americans and European settlers, but were hunted nearly to extinction. Populations partially rebounded in the past century. Although terrapins are no longer hunted in New Jersey, threats include habitat destruction, getting caught in crab traps, poaching and cars.




JONATHAN BISS, Piano 4-Hands




Because of the many threats to bog turtles, Zappalorti would like to see a captive breeding program in which eggs are hatched and raised in laboratories, then repatriated into suitable habitats. Breeding programs have been successful in Tennessee and Georgia, he said, though introducing a similar program in New Jersey would require “a lot of work and a lot of funding.”

Spotted turtles and wood turtles are closely related to bog turtles, and face many of the same risks.

Distinctive for the yellow spots on their shells, spotted turtles can be found in many habitats that host bog turtles. While bog turtles are habitat “specialists” – meaning they require a very specific set of conditions – spotted turtles are “generalists” with less specific needs. Thus, they can be found in places bog turtles don’t live, including shallow lakes and vernal pools.

“They’re a beautiful little turtle,” said conservation biologist Robert Hamilton, who has just launched an independent volunteer project in the Pine Barrens to gather data on spot-

For many years, the Wetlands Institute in Stone Harbor has run a program to help terrapins cross roadways during their breeding season – and to recover and hatch eggs from females killed by cars. Currently projects are in the works to modify salt marsh causeways to make them safer for terrapins during the seashore’s heavy traffic season.

Thanks to the Endangered and Nongame Species Program, and the nonprofit conservation organizations and volunteers that are working to help New Jersey’s rare turtles survive and rebound. Any interventions to increase their populations are well worth the effort!
