‘Accomplished, supported and grateful’ Despite cancer, Rowan awardee committed fully to her education

A few semesters into her paramedic science education at Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC), Jessica Bennett faced an unimaginable situation: After experiencing debilitating symptoms from a lump in her neck, doctors informed Bennett that the mass on her salivary gland was most likely cancerous.

Uncertainty immediately loomed over the rest of her college career. But her dedicated spirit convinced Bennett that continuing her studies was what she wanted to do.

“I just didn’t want to lose the progress that I had already made,” she recalled. “I just don’t want to give up my life. I know a lot of people would have stopped going, and I was like, ‘I can’t. I literally will lose myself.’”

After surgery in December of 2022, Bennett took some time to relax during winter break, but she was right back in class the following month. She was candid about her struggles post-surgery, including hearing loss that resulted because the lump was located directly under one ear.

Simple classroom exercises like working with feedback mannequins became difficult for her. Five days a week, immediately after class, Bennett went from campus to the hospital for radiation. But despite what she

was going through, she had the help of her professors and other staff at Rown to alleviate complications.

“They’ve been nothing but extremely supportive,” she noted.

The decision to return to school ul-

timately proved fruitful: Bennett was given Rowan’s director’s award by its president, Dr. Michael A. Cioce, in front of family, professors and peers to acknowledge her unwavering commitment to education.

“It was awesome, in front of my family and friends and the whole nine yards to receive that award,” she recounted of receiving the award during Rowan’s May 16 commencement. “It’s even better that, you know, the president was there. I was able to talk to him afterward. So it was really cool.

“It was a really great experience.”

The award was the culmination of Bennett’s efforts. After everything she experienced, she took particular pride in crossing the stage at graduation, receiving her diploma and switching her tassel from right to left. Bennett had three words to describe her feelings: “Accomplished, supported and grateful.”

Bennett’s cancer has been in remission since March of 2023 and the next steps regarding her health will include scans every three months. She then plans to visit hospitals in the area – specifically Virtua, where she has already applied – and start her career.

As she awaits her first day on the job, Bennett has made other necessary plans to follow 27 months of schooling: a vacation with periodic hospital visits.

County launches grant program to fight food insecurity why newspapers?

Citing ongoing need, the Burlington County Commissioners announced the launch of a new $1 million grant program to support local food pantries and other organizations assisting food insecure households.

The Burlington County Grants for Food Banks and Food Pantries program will offer grants up to $75,000 to nonprofit organizations that are providing food assistance to residents in Burlington County and have experienced increased demand since the beginning of COVID.

As of 2020, an estimated 31,800 Burlington County residents, including 9,000 children, were considered food insecure because they lived in households without con-

sistent access to adequate healthy foods.

The food grants program is funded with federal aid the county received from the American Rescue Plan Act and is being administered by CGP&H. Applications are now being accepted and awards will be made on a rolling basis until funding is exhausted.

The commissioners appropriated $1 million for the program. Grants can be used to purchase and distribute food or acquire or upgrade equipment such as stoves, freezers, coolers and shelving.

Nonprofits interested in applying for a grant can request an application by emailing BurlCoFood@cgph. net or by calling (609) 7952503.

County releases election video detailing how to vote with new machines

Burlington County used a new fleet of voting machines during the June 4 primary election and voters have opportunities to become familiar with the new equipment and procedures before heading to the polls for November’s general election.

The new machines consist of electronic ballot marking devices and tabulators and are the same as the ones acquired by Burlington County in 2021 for early voting. The June 4 primary was the first time the new equipment was used across the county at all polling locations.

To assist voters, a computer animation video was created to walk voters through the process of voting with the new machines. It can be viewed on the Burlington County Election Services page and provides a 3-minute overview of how to vote with the new equipment.

The video is available at

A ballot marking device and tabulator are also on display at the County Corner site in the Moorestown Mall every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

so voters have the opportunity to inspect the machines and familiarize themselves with the technology. Elections staff will be on site to answer questions about the new machines and provide other assistance related to voting and election procedures, including vote-bymail and early voting options.

For a brief rundown of some additional things voters should know about, visit www.

Residents with questions about the election and voting process can call the Burlington County Elections hotline at (609) 265-VOTE.

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-

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.

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 games of summer vacations are on tap in June at Game Friendzy, including introductory sessions for mah jongg, canasta, pinochle, and hand and foot.

Sign up and guarantee you get a seat at the gaming table this summer wherever you are – a beach condo, mountain cabin, cruise ship, community clubhouse, or your own backyard!

Every Saturday in June, Game Friendzy in Cherry Hill is hosting two-hour sessions, 10 am-12 pm, to learn the basics of the games of summer – mah jongg on June 8, pinochle on June 15, canasta on June 22, and hand and foot on June 29.

The fee for these classic and perennially popular game sessions is $10/person/session.

Come alone, enlist a game-playing family member, or gather friends for a fun morning of learning and playing games. Registration is not required, all the sessions are drop-in events.

Game Friendzy, South Jersey’s premier tabletop gaming venue, is located at 7 Carnegie Plaza, near the intersection of Springdale and Church roads, and is an accessible facility with free parking and complimentary snacks, coffee, and tea.

Mah jongg participants will learn about the tiles, the Charleston, the wall, the rhythm of the game, and how to read the National Mah Jongg League card and form hands. Canasta aficionados will learn the basics of this rummy-like card game, including how to lay melds, build canastas, amass points, and tally scores.

The facilitator will also share playing strategies and special hand combinations with those who already know how to play. At the pinochle session, participants will learn basic four-person partnership pinochle. This popular, fun-toplay melding and trick-taking game is played with a deck of 48 cards, easy to learn, and will provide many hours of enjoyment.

And at the hand and foot session, participants will be introduced to this fun card game that is similar to canasta, but features five to six decks and the dealing of two hands -- a hand and a foot.

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!

Concerned about the rise of break-ins in our communities? Turn burglary into attempted burglary with safety film that can be applied to your existing windows! Safety film strengthens glass, holds glass together in the event of an impact, and stops flying shards. Clear safety film is applied directly to window panes which improves safety, security, and gives you peace of mind! Call for a FREE estimate.

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.”

Municipalities earn Clean Communities grants

Evesham and Mount Laurel townships have each been awarded more than $100,000 in state Clean Communities grants, according to a press release from the office of Gov. Phil Murphy.

The annual grants are awarded to municipalities and counties across the state to fund litter removal programs that clean up neighborhoods, prevent trash from entering waterways and protect wildlife and their habitats, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Shawn M. LaTourette said.

Evesham Township will receive $129,847 and Mount Laurel Township will receive $116,678. Burlington County is getting $226,469 in grant funds, according to the release.

The grant awards were announced in conjunction with an open house event hosted in May by the nonprofit New

Jersey Clean Communities Council (NJCCC) at the Avenel Performing Arts Center in Middlesex County. This year’s funding represents a more than $3-million increase from last year.

In total, the DEP is awarding $24.3 million to eligible municipalities and $3 million to counties across the state to conduct cleanups, educate the public and enforce litter-related laws and ordinances.

The grant program is funded by taxes collected from businesses that produce litter-generating products and penalties paid for litter-related violations.

“The DEP and New Jersey Clean Communities Council remain steadfast in our commitment to reduce the impacts of litter on our communities,” LaTourette said. “The programs funded by these grants beautify our communities, protect wildlife and the health of our waterways,

and reduce localized flooding caused by the clogging of stormwater systems by trash.”

NJCCC oversees reporting requirements for the program and runs public awareness campaigns to educate the public, primarily young people, about the harmful environmental impacts of litter, especially on waterways. Grant awards are based on population; housing units; and miles of municipally owned roadways, as prescribed by state law.

“Clean Communities grants provide local governments with critical funds to help create a litter-free New Jersey, allowing them to organize volunteer cleanups, purchase cleanup equipment and trash and recycling receptacles for public spaces, promote litter education initiatives, and enhance stormwater management programs,” said JoAnn Gemenden, executive director of the NJCCC.

The NJCCC also administers the Adopt-a-Highway and Adopt-a-Beach programs, statewide programs that support groups, organizations, businesses or individuals who want to be active stewards of public lands yearround.

A message for our LRHSD community

Dear Lenape Regional High School District Community:

We asked for advocacy from our school community, and our community delivered. Everyone’s efforts drove bipartisan support for legislation enacted to provide immediate budgetary relief to the Lenape Regional High School District.

I take great pride in leading our district, full of outstanding staff and with the support of a dedicated Board, navigating the highs and lows and every moment in between. I also understand the importance of being present, clear and public-facing through it all. That is why I am reaching out beyond our school community, to all LRHSD taxpayers, with context for a modified budget our Board and administration will set forth for Department of Education approval.

lowing us to recoup some of the equivalent funds lost due to S2.

• Restoring bowling and gymnastics programs with significant reductions to costs and/or modifications. We have worked tirelessly on behalf of our school community, including our taxpayers, to overcome the state’s flawed school funding formula. Examples of this in action are the careful planning that made it possible to propose the tax-neutral bond referendum in 2021, as well as our success securing nearly $16 million in grant funding since 2020.

We especially take pride in sustaining our reputation as one of New Jersey’s top-performing school districts while maintaining a lean administrative structure and spending well below the state’s mandated limit on administrative costs per pupil.

The past six years have tested LRHSD as the S2 Bill reshaped New Jersey’s school funding formula, making us repeat losers in the appropriation of State Aid. Although the daunting funding cuts totaled over $10 million, we never lost our resolve and ingenuity to provide our students and community with exceptional schools.

But this current budgeting period presented a new set of unexpected challenges.

As we prepared for the 20242025 academic year, we were shocked to learn our State Aid was gutted $4.7 million, more than 14 times the anticipated decrease.

Given the new legislation, LRHSD will recover 45% of the State Aid we were set to lose ($2.1 million of the $4.7 million). Additionally, the legislation grants a one-time opportunity to increase taxes above the 2% tax levy cap, al-

Our administration and Board have reworked the numbers to propose a solution to restore many, though not all, of the necessary and devastating budget cuts planned for the 2024-2025 school year. It is not feasible to restore everything, nor is it fiscally responsible to do so, in light of enrollment reductions.

We determined that a onetime additional 5.7% increase in taxes will make it possible to fulfill our commitment to preserving the quality high school experiences our students deserve and our community expects. With this, the Board plans to reinstate staff and programs including, but not limited to:

• Rehiring approximately 65 of 90 non-tenured staff.

• Restoring non-mandatory special education programs.

• Eliminating the proposed graduation fee.

• Maintaining clubs and stipend positions for athletics with a plan to reduce redundancies in a few of our offerings based on student and staff input.

Despite all this, the administration and Board understand that even the slightest increase in taxes is upsetting, which is why we remain committed to advocacy. We now set our sights on legislation aimed at creating reliable and stable methods for funding education in New Jersey without being overly reliant on our community’s tax dollars.

I thank you for your understanding and support. I also want to extend my sincere gratitude to the Board, which has remained unified and committed to ensuring LRHSD is a source of pride for this community and a nurturing environment for our community’s future leaders.

an electric moment’

June’s Red Bank archaeology days, family dig offer ‘magic’ opportunities

The Sun

It will be an exciting two Sundays this month at the Red Bank Battlefield in National Park, with a veterans archaeology dig this Sunday and a family history dig on June 23.

“Red Bank’s archaeology days offer participants the opportunity to work side by side with our professional archaeology team,” said battlefield park director Jen Janofsky. “They learn about the archaeological process and the important role archaeology plays in battlefield preservation and interpretation.

“We also use this program as an opportunity to raise awareness that the battlefield is a burial site and worthy of our preservation efforts and respect,” she added, referring to the remains of Hessian soldiers found there in a mass grave two years ago.

Coordinating the digs will be Janofsky, a professor of history at Rowan University, and Wade Catts, president of South River Heritage Consulting. The program is also supported by students in the university’s field school at Red Bank and volunteers from the Archaeology Society of New Jersey.

A similar archeological dig at the battlefield on June 26, 2022 turned up the Hessians’ remains. The 15 solders were killed by the Rhode Island reg-

iment of the Continental Army during the Battle of Red Bank in 1777.

“They were unceremoniously dumped in a mass grave,” Jenofsky explained. “Our goals are to treat the remains with dignity and respect, identifying specific soldiers and assigning them names.”

She and archaeologist Catts were leading the public participation dig in 2022, and over four days, some 100 volunteers worked screens and processed artifacts from the quarter-acre trench area deeded to the battlefield in 2021 by a local family. Several femur bones were found on the last day.

“Public Archaeology is my favorite program that our park offers,” Janofsky said. “It’s one thing to visit a museum and observe objects from a distance. It’s another thing to actually unearth an object that hasn’t been touched in 250 years and in some cases, thousands of years, in the case of Native American artifacts.

“When a participant discovers an object, it’s an electric moment,” she added. “This is when the public history ‘magic’ happens. It allows a deep and personal connection to the past.”

This is the second year the Red Bank Battlefield is offering a special program for veterans and their families.

“Veterans connect with battlefields differently from our

There will be two public archaeological digs this month at the site, where remains of Hessian soldiers have been found.

other park visitors,” Janofsky pointed out. “It’s a way we can thank them and their families for their service. It’s also an opportunity to meet other veterans and share their personal stories of service.”

The battlefield park features picnic pavilions and a scenic path along the Delaware River, and there will be tours and activities for veterans and their families during the day.

Family history day is an opportunity to discover the excitement of an archaeology project, and children absolutely love archaeology, Janofsky said.

“We designed the afternoon to include hands-on activities like screening stations safe for

little hands, coloring activities, and kid-safe artifacts through our History Cart,” she said. “The field school students will be working with volunteers from the Archaeology Society of New Jersey to offer an afternoon of fun and educational activities for everyone.”

Admission is free and the event runs from noon to 4 p.m., rain or shine. For information on both public digs, call (856) 853-5120.

The Battle of Red Bank itself during the Revolutionary War began on the morning of Oct. 22, 1777, when some 2,000 Hessian troops marched 10 miles from Haddonfield to Fort Mercer, along the Delaware River in

current day National Park. The German mercenaries hired by the English government hoped to overrun the fort and enable ships to get up the river and resupply the Philadelphia-based British Army.

The 400 soldiers defending the fort were the war-hardened troops of the Rhode Island 1st and 2nd regiments, and they got a big break when patriot Jonas Cattell ran from Haddonfield through the backwoods ahead of the Hessian troops to raise the alarm, “The Hessians are coming.”

Col. Christopher Greene, a distant cousin of war hero Gen. Nathanael Greene, quickly ordered the patriots – many of whom were African and Native Americans – to turn around the cannons pointing at the river and face the oncoming attack from land.

By the end of the day, 82 Hessian soldiers lay dead in the trench surrounding the fort after an unsuccessful attempt to scale the walls. Another 228 were wounded in the Battle of Red Bank and 60 were captured. The heavily outnumbered Continental Army troops reported 14 killed and 23 wounded.

Veterans and the families will learn about the battle – and possibly discover some remnants of it – on Sunday. The same opportunity will be offered to all families and their children on June 23.

Sound Wave Treatment



Women Conquer Migraines

The three women had reached the end of their rope. They thought they had exhausted every avenue of treatment, and nothing worked for long.

Lori N. Strok, Danielle Wendrychowicz and Tina McLaughlin had all but given up hope of finding relief from the crippling head pain that altered their lives. They aren’t alone. The American Council for Headache Pain estimates that 8,700,000 women suffer from migraine each year. Women most susceptible are those between the ages of 35 and 45, when many are at the height of their career, family responsibilities and social life.

Strok, for example, says, “I was at wit’s end.” The 27-year-old Accounts Payable Manager, had tried several over-the-counter, aspirin-based medications and more than one prescription medicine “I took them every day trying to relieve the pain of three-time-aweek migraines,” she says. “They sometimes covered the pain, but they didn’t get to the root of the problem.”

Wendrychowicz, a school bus driver, shares a similar experience.

“I’ve been to headache centers, taken numerous medications and met with several doctors,” she reports. “Nothing helped.” McLaughlin, owner of a floral shop in Moorestown said, “My family doctor suggested a prescription medicine that was only so effective,” she says. “I had the migraines for 25 years and they had been getting worse with time,” she says Strok had suffered with them for four years and Wendrychowicz for seven.

Although the number of years that they have suffered with migraines varies, the common thread weaving through the women’s experiences with migraines is how the pain changed, indeed, controlled, their lives. Strok, for example, says “It would almost stop my life, I’d leave social functions like parties. I

couldn’t work when they were really bad.” McLaughlin sometimes spent the holidays in bed and Wendrychowicz says she was extremely irritable, moody and didn’t want to do anything “I was always fatigued and it affected my family life,” Wendrychowicz says.

When things looked darkest, a light at the end of the tunnel appeared. The three women learned about a treatment that was producing startling results in other women suffering chronic migraines.

The treatment is gentle and effective treatment and requires no prescription medication or physical, hands-on manipulation. It comprises only a pulse of sound directed to a person’s atlas - the top vertebrae that supports the head. After an extensive examination, setting up for the treatment takes only minutes and the sound pulse lasts less then a second. Although a person can barely feel the pulse, it produces dramatic results

Dr. John Sandoz of Mount Laurel explains “Migraines often are caused by physical and stress-related problems due to misalignment of the atlas vertebrae. Correcting this misalignment alleviates the cause of the problem and relieves the migraines.”

His practice is one of the very few offices in the Philadelphia and southern and central New Jersey area offering the treatment. Strok says, “Dr. Sandoz applied the sound pulse to my finger to show that it was painless and it was, I couldn’t believe it”. She received weekly treatments at first and now goes once every three weeks. They have helped better than anything else she has tried.

Wendrychowicz shares a similar experience. “Since undergoing treatment, I’ve had no headaches,” she says. “It’s even helped relieve the generalized body pain caused by my fibromyalgia.”

McLaughlin, too, reports good results. After only four treatments, she was pain free.

“I counted the days,” she says. “And I had no migraines for almost three weeks” For the first time in 10 years she didn’t fear going to sleep and being awakened by a migraine. What’s their advice to other women suffering migraines? Strok, for example, suggests that they not give or depend solely on medication.

“There’s help for your problem and Dr. Sandoz is it.”

For those of you who have suffered with chronic pain for years, and are frustrated, and have given up hope to ever feel well again. I encourage you to contact Dr. John Sandoz and Dr. Joshua Sandoz at Sandoz Chiropractic Center, 2057 Briggs Rd. Suite 204, Mount Laurel, NJ 08054. The phone number is 856-206-9560.

I hope this is the last phone call you ever have to make for relief of the chronic pain you are suffering.
