Park playground can be a good thing

I am the person who got the ball rolling to convert the playground at Tustin and Verree Road, in Fox Chase, from a standard playground to one for special-needs children in 2013.

The reason for my writing is to enlighten some readers who, in the May 29 story Winchester Park opposes park playground, made such comments as, “Shut it down,” “We never asked for it,” “Disneyland of riff raff” and how special-needs children should not be around enabled children who are “acting like animals.” These unruly children should be disciplined because what parent would want their child around an undisciplined child whether their child is disabled or enabled? A playground that allows disabled and enabled children to play together affords them the privilege to learn about each other and tear down the barriers to discover that these children are very much like themselves. There shouldn’t be segregation. Segregation only encourages fear and ignorance.

The equipment proposed by Marvel was thought out. It is designed toward children between the ages of 2 and 12. A basketball court is not being added for the sole reason of not drawing teenagers and young adults to the playground. However, the existing pavilion and picnic tables can draw riff raff to the

OPINION

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Pennypack. Why are people not up in arms about their existence? I’m not suggesting their removal but making a point. A solution is that a Mosquito anti-loitering device can be installed to keep away people who are 25 and younger in addition to being locked up at night.

A playground in the park isn’t the park’s problem. Perhaps, even the lack of park rangers isn’t an issue. I can say with certainty, it’s the citizens who come to the Pennypack and disrespect it by dumping, riding ATVs, holding their picnics and leaving their trash behind, doing and/ or dealing drugs or working in the oldest profession. Address these issues and you have the park, community and neighborhoods you want to be proud of. I don’t know what to say about the homeless in the park. They are not wanted and I understand that because you don’t know what type of people they are but can that not be said about the people who use the park every day and are not homeless? Have a heart for the homeless who live in the park. They just may be down on

their luck and have no place else to go. Karen Kaczorek Bustleton

Write in Nikki Haley

This is in response to two letters in the 5/15 NE Times.

I was registered Democrat and split my ticket until Biden became president. I changed to Republican after Philly’s mayoral primary. Biden is the worst USA president we have ever had. China, Russia and Iran are thrilled. If we had a Mount Rushmore of shame, I’d nominate him, Carter, Nixon and Obama for inclusion.

I did not want to see a rematch of 2020, like 71% of Americans. Another reason I changed parties is to vote for Nikki Haley. I did in the primary and still will in the general.

Is Trump a nice guy? Has he always told the truth? No to both. Not to say he rates inclusion on Mount Rushmore, but he was infinitely better for USA and the world as a whole as president than Biden

has been. To wit, both letters deride the slogan MAGA. In response, I ask why they object to America being great? Biden has told some whoppers: Like commiserating with Gold Star families comparing a soldier dying in combat to his son, who didn’t. How about graduating at the top of his class? An uncle eaten by cannibals? Made real international friends with that one.

The Jan. 6 riot was mentioned. Disgusting. But how many people went to prison for the Floyd riots? They went on for a month and caused billions in damage.

Ukraine and Israel? Everyone forgets how Biden said it’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion. Wonder if he was talking to Hamas or Putin? Seems like both to me. Then there was Poland offering fighters to Ukraine very early in the “incursion” that Biden blocked. Why?

Classified documents? Well, why did Bden have them from his VP and Senate days when he wasn’t even in the chain of command?

Trump is later described as “irresponsible, insane, dangerous, pyschopathic.” Addressing dangerous, there were fewer people killed in foreign wars in all Trump’s presidency than one year under Biden. Having seen dementia, I wonder if Biden isn’t in some stage of it. Trump is blamed for “tanking the economy” and inflation in the “postCOVID years.” Well, shouldn’t he then get credit for development of the vaccine? Odd thing about the “post-COVID years.” Biden is president, not Trump. And how was that $7 gas?

I’ll wrap up by repeating Nikki Haley is my choice for president. Hope she runs again in ’28.

Molly stands up for her beliefs

Lisa Lyne Flynn is a Castor Gardens native and Fox Chase Cancer Center nurse who also performs as a singer/ guitar player for the band LisaChristSuperstar.

A vegan for more than 30 years, Flynn used her musical background when writing her new book, You Don’t Eat Meat?

Flynn wrote the book like a song.

The book centers on a girl named Molly, who is constantly teased during lunch at school for her food choices. A boy says, “Chicken is so yummy,” while others say they like bacon, ham and even Spam.

High, and now lives in Glenside. In addition to her work as a nurse and musician, she co-owns Kadillac Tattoo, formerly on Rising Sun Avenue in Lawncrest and now in Hatboro and on Germantown Avenue in Mount Airy,

She has written another book, The Death Cheaters, which combines her musical talents with her love for fantasy. Flynn is a big fan of the Beatles, and is inspired by Paul McCartney, a vegetarian who promotes a meatfree Monday initiative and has been known to say that if slaughterhouses had glass windows, nobody would eat meat.

Flynn became a vegan due to her love for animals.

Molly tells her classmates why she doesn’t eat meat, spreading her love and kindness as she passionately stands up for her beliefs. She doesn’t want animals to feel pain. In responding to her classmates, she said, “Animals, so full of love, have eyes and hearts and souls. I could not hurt one of them and eat them on a roll.”

In the end, the same classmates who bullied her embrace her love for animals and her cruelty-free lifestyle.

When Ashley was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2022, her world was turned upside down. The fear of losing her hair during chemotherapy added an extra layer of anxiety. For Ashley, her hair was more than just hair; it was tied to her identity, her role in the family business, and the way her children saw her. Determined to maintain her privacy and dignity through the toughest journey of her life, Ashley discovered cold capping, a revolutionary method that would ultimately save her hair.

Cold capping, a process involving wearing a special cap cooled to extremely low temperatures before, during, and after chemotherapy, works by constricting the blood vessels in the scalp, reducing the amount

of chemo drugs reaching the hair follicles. Despite requiring an aggressive treatment and capping being relatively new and not widely known, Ashley decided to give it a try.

The results were nothing short of miraculous. Ashley retained over 70% of her hair throughout treatment. This wasn’t just about vanity; it was about holding onto a sense of normalcy in an incredibly turbulent time. She continued working at her family-owned retirement planning business without drawing unwanted attention or pity. Her children saw her as the same strong and loving mom they had always known, not defined by her illness. Her employees and clients treated her as the

Compassionate Cold Capping is helping patients preserve their hair during chemotherapy.

Founder Ashley maintained her hair during an aggressive treatment for breast cancer. Now her company is helping women all over the Philadelphia area keep their hair through the revolutionary process of cold capping.

MEMORIAL DAY

Continued from Page 1

The crowd was invited inside to view the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial mobile wall and new banners for all 27 graduates killed in Vietnam. The banners will be placed on light poles at Ramp Playground, across the street from the school.

Larry Vitale, whose brother Michael died in the war, was the project manager for the banners.

Bill Minich (class of 1981) funded the banners.

There is also a banner with the number 27, emblems of the branches of service and the words, “Our Fallen Crusaders. Lest We Forget. Vietnam.”

Lawn flag-sized banners will be available at Lloyd Sixsmith Sporting Goods, 7554 Frankford Ave., sometime in July.

Cardinal Dougherty, which closed in 2010, also lost 27 graduates in Vietnam.

Its memorial is at Michael J. Crescenz Medal of Honor Rising Sun VFW Post 2819, 6850 Martins Mill Road, which also hosted a Memorial Day ceremony.

Joe Crescenz represented his brother, a Dougherty graduate who was the only Philadelphian to earn the Medal of Honor for his heroics in Vietnam.

Leilani Dinh, a 7-year-old student at Commonwealth Charter Academy who

was wearing fatigues, got things underway with a rousing rendition of God Bless America

The event also included the Pledge of Allegiance and a performance of the national anthem by Luke Jardel and Michael Molloy.

Fels coach has baseball team firing on all cylinders

Sports have always been a huge part of Alyssa Campbell’s life.

Campbell, a health and physical education teacher at Samuel Fels High School, was a two-sport athlete at North Penn when she was in high school. She played basketball, but her true passion was softball.

That wasn’t new when she was a teenager.

“I think before I was able to walk, I had a bat in one hand and a glove in the other,” Campbell said. “I always loved sports. I loved everything, I played everything. Softball was my true passion, but I loved it all. Baseball and softball were two sports I just always loved to be around. It’s always been that way.”

She arrived at Fels last year as a teacher, and immediately started to see if she could help any of the programs.

She was more than qualified to coach pretty much anything.

Prior to arriving at Fels, she spent 12 years as a softball coach at Red Land High School. She also had a coaching stint at Franklin and Marshall in Lancaster and coached her travel softball team, the North Penn Eclipse.

She also coached field hockey, lacrosse, even football at Red Land where she coached wide receivers. Plus, as a physical education teacher, she has the fun job of teaching kids how to play virtually every sport there is.

But when she got to Fels, the school didn’t need any head coaches, at least at first. But then she got some good news.

“They had a coach for everything including softball, which I looked into,” Campbell said. “They don’t have as many coaches in every sport (in the Public League compared to suburban schools), and they didn’t need anyone. When we got closer to spring, our AD said they

thought they had enough interest to make enough for a second baseball team, they might have a JV team, they were looking for an assistant and they asked if I wanted to do it.

“I knew how to play baseball, my dad played competitively. I could keep the book before I could write a sentence. I heard there was an opening. I was able to get in there.”

She jumped right in and had a great

time serving as an assistant to George Dufner.

The team enjoyed a great run, made the playoffs and everyone was looking forward to the 2024 season after a very successful 2023 campaign.

Then she found out Dufner wasn’t coming back and the position was posted.

Not only did she want it, her players wanted her to have the job. She applied, got it and jumped right in.

Apparently she’s a pretty good skipper because she led Fels to an undefeated regular season and a trip to the Public League semifinals where the Panthers ultimately fell to Central. It wasn’t what they wanted, but it was historical.

This marked the first time Fels advanced to the brink of the Public League championship game, and left the players with a great sense of achievement. They wanted more, but couldn’t be happier with the progress they made the past two seasons, and especially this year.

“We have the entire same team as last year, we only graduated one senior, so I got to know all of them last year, but I also got to know them in class,” Campbell said. “I have them as students. I’ve gotten to know them on and off the field. I grew those relationships as a coach and teacher.

“This year, when the previous head coach told them what was going on, they were really excited. It was a nice reaction to the news. I thought they would be bummed, and they were because they loved him, but when he said I was hired, they were excited. They know me, I know their abilities and we had relationships. They knew what I wanted and I know what they can do.”

Together, they made magic.

Fels isn’t a perennial baseball powerhouse but sure played like it.

It says a lot about a high school team when it has good players and all of them stick together. Fels didn’t lose any of its stars to transfers, and they were ready to compete together.

“They already had that mindset of that they want to compete, win a championship,” Campbell said. “We want to play big teams, Frankford, Central, Masterman. They wanted to and were focused. We ran into some barriers, we lost some guys (to injury) and guys had to become pitchers. We had to pull position

Ryan softball and family motivate junior pitcher Velez

Winning doesn’t mean everything to Maddie Velez. But winning at Ryan sure does.

Velez is a junior on the Archbishop Ryan High School softball team, and since electing to go to the school when she was in eighth grade has been the best decision she’s ever made not just because she loves the school, but she loves representing the school on the softball field.

“It’s super fun, mostly because of all the girls on the team,” said Velez, who is one of the team’s top pitchers and also an outfielder. “When I was in eighth grade, I was going to go to Basil’s, but then it closed.

“I went on visits to Ryan and just loved it. I loved everything about it, mostly how nice everyone was. The teachers are helpful, they really care, our principal Mr. (Joseph) McFadden and really everyone puts us in the best way to succeed and learn. And the softball coach (John Kidwell) is a great coach. It had everything for me and I really loved it right from the start.”

She has played a big part on the softball team, too, although last year she missed arguably the most fun time of the year.

“The day before the championship game, we were practicing hitting and I got a concussion,” Velez said. “”I got hit in the head. It was a mild concussion, but it was still bad. I didn’t have anything bad like memory loss, but I did miss about a month.

“I missed the championship and then states. We went on a little run in states and I missed it

fun for everyone.”

And while she’s in no rush to end her junior season, Velez has a huge summer of softball ahead of her. Not just as a player, either.

“More softball, I have tournaments every weekend until August, so I’ll be playing a lot,” Velez said. “I love it with all of my heart, I’ll watch it anytime I can. At home, I’ll watch every College World Series game. My whole life revolves around it, I’ve loved it since I started playing.

all. It was hard not playing, but I was lucky it wasn’t too bad. The team did great. I was happy for them. I was sad when they lost, not for me, but for the seniors. That was their year and they wanted to keep winning.”

This year, Velez is healthy heading into states, and once again she has the goal of keeping her senior teammates in Ryan jerseys for as long as possible. She’s ready to do her part from the circle and she knows the rest of the team will do their part, too.

“I just want to have a great run this year for the seniors because they’re so important to this team,” said Velez, who lives in Fox Chase. “This year has been super fun, especially because of the girls on the team. I know they’re always backing me up. I know when I get down (the seniors) lift us up. We want to lift them up.”

Velez worked herself into one of the top pitchers in the game this year, and that was a main reason for the Ragdolls’ success.

Behind solid pitching and scorching-hot hitting, the Ragdolls finished atop the Catholic League and went 9-1. They rode that momentum all the way to the Catholic League championship where they fell to Conwell-Egan in a game that took extra innings to decide.

It wasn’t the perfect ending because it wasn’t the ending. The Ragdolls earned the right to play on in the PIAA Class 4A playoffs.

“This year meant everything for us because we just wanted to play as much together as we could,” Velez said. “We went 9-1, nobody expected us to do that because we lost good players last year. We are lucky, we had a great senior class last year and this year.

“We just had fun. I think that’s why everyone is so happy we’re going on, it just means we have more games to play together. Every day we get to practice. And practice is fun. Our coaches work us to get better, but they make it fun. And we like being around each other. That makes it

“I’m really excited because this year I got my first real job, I’m going to be an umpire. I’m going to ump games of kids 7 and 8, and 9 and 10. I’ve done a few games and I really like it. I love that I’m working around the game. I just love being around it, and if I can have a job that involves softball, that’s great.”

She loves softball for the game, but also because it means so much to her entire family.

Velez considers herself very lucky because her parents are huge supporters of her career, and so is her older brother Lucas.

“Softball is very special to my family, my mom was a great softball player, and my dad didn’t play it, but he’s really helped me a lot with it,” she said. “He loves it, I think because of me. He’ll watch games with me and we’ll go over things after games. They come to all my games.

“My brother is a huge supporter of mine, too. He was a great athlete, but he had too many concussions so he had to stop playing. I love that he supports me so much. It means a lot. He’ll come to a lot of games. I’m very lucky to have all of them, they’re a great support for me.”

players for the mound for some big games. Tacony, Lincoln, some very good teams in our division, And every single time they did great. They went through a lot, we didn’t have our starters every game, but everyone stepped up and filled in the position.”

Campbell was the perfect fit.

And she’s excited about what the future holds for Fels baseball.

“I love them, I love all of them, we have fun, they’re super serious and goof off, so they take it seriously, and have a good time,” she said. “They know when to be serious and dial it back. And they know the limits and the things I expect from them. We set it up, we had a great year, it’s not surprising, but more exciting.

“I believe in them, I pride myself in that I always put them in the best position, I know what they can do, what they can’t do. I trust them, they trust me and it’s worked out.”

And as much as this is nothing new for Campbell, she’s still having the best time. It makes all those hours she put in as a player, an assistant and head coach worth it.

For her and her parents.

“Both my parents have been huge, my dad is the big sports influence and my mom is the best,” she said. “I’m an only child, my dad got me right into sports the second I started walking, he put a bat in one hand and a glove in the other. He came to the last two playoff games to watch, he never saw me coach baseball, he’s only seen other sports. That was a proud moment for him. It was really cool, I called him after.

“We are having so much fun. Next year we will take another step up to play the big boys. We’re excited. We know what we can do. We just have to do it.”

Cont. from Page 15 games to watch, he never saw proud moment for him. It was Next year we will take another can do. We just have to do it.”
