 The graduate of 1994 is excited to help students gain leadership skills and advance in the STEM field The Times

Jeanne Frawley remembers her years at Villa Joseph Marie High School fondly. Surrounded by other talented, academically-gifted young women, this 1994 alumna felt right at home. Despite thoroughly enjoying her time at Villa Joseph Marie (she even served as the school mascot), Frawley never thought she’d return to those hallways. Now, Frawley is not only back at her alma mater, she’s leading the charge in educating the next generation of female leaders as the school’s fourth president. “Since February, we have been on a journey to find the most qualified individual to fill the role of president and to continue the school’s legacy as a premier institution for Catholic education for young women,” said Mary Smithson, chair of the board. “I am pleased that we have found that individual, an alumna, Jeanne Frawley.”

PRESIDENT

➤ Frawley first became reacquainted with Villa Joseph Marie, currently in its 90th year, when she joined its Advancement Committee, which she’s been co-chair of for the past year. She also mentored a student, who recently received a full ride to DeSales University. “It was nice to be back on campus and see how Villa has grown. Frankly, it [becoming president] was not an expectation. But when Villa was in the market for a leader, I realized that Villa is the last all-women’s high school left in Bucks County. It was alarming to me and the work is too important,” she said. “I got excited about what we might be able to do with a school that had 70 percent of its graduates last year go into STEM careers. All women. There are a lot of really cool things happening in Holland, Pennsylvania and I wanted to be part of it.” Prior to this position, the current Yardley resident enjoyed over 20 years in education, with her experience ranging from admissions and student affairs to faculty work. She also has expertise in helping students make major transitions, from high school to college and from college to the workforce, all while ensuring they have the proper skills to succeed. At Villa Joseph Marie, one of Frawley’s key goals is for the school to continue its tradition of being “a safe place of women helping women.” As a freshman, Frawley was saddened to see her bright, confident peers turn shy and quiet outside the classroom. Yet by their sophomore year, they were the same person both in and out of class. “Statistically, single-sex education impacts women a bit more than it impacts men with outcomes. There is a greater self-reported sense of confidence and support that they feel in their community. There is a tendency for them to engage in a higher rate in leadership positions after their time in school,” explained Frawley, who thanked Villa’s Sisters of St. Casimir for being tough but extremely supportive. “It’s where I learned that balance of mind, body, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

spirit. I learned how to be challenged and to embrace that challenge.” Another of Frawley’s goals is to instill the importance of having meaningful conversations about difficult topics, something that can be hard in a society that’s becoming more polarized by the day. “It’s never been more important to teach civil discourse,” she said. “It’s really important that we help people find their center and their foundation and help guide their decision making, but more importantly, guide their conversation. When people have the keyboard confidence of what social media provides, it’s really important to create an environment where you lean into those difficult conversations in-person, eye-to-eye. We don’t all have to agree, but we do all have to respect one another, and with that foundation is how we do that.” Currently, Frawley is enjoying a “listening tour,” which involves getting acquainted with the Villa Joseph Marie community. Moving forward, she hopes to spotlight student achievements, including volunteer service projects and post-grad STEM endeavors, on a wider scale. “What our students are doing in these hallways is very impressive. Where they’re going to college is impressive,” said Frawley. “I want to make sure families see that as an option.” She also intends to better engage her fellow alumnus by inviting them to visit and inspire the next generation. Additionally, a multi-phase campaign will see the creation of a brand new STEAM hallway to provide more opportunities, which already include an engineering program. There is still a shortage of women in STEM fields, and Frawley knows Villa grads would be perfect candidates to someday fill those roles. “Companies need them and are willing to invest in them,” she said. “I always say, ‘If she can see it, she can be it.’ I want to show students what’s possible and expose them to all of the opportunities out there.” ••

LOCAL HAPPENINGS Grant to support children’s mental health

Funding the arts: Laura Aquilone (L) and Rachel Mark received scholarships from Neshaminy Valley Music Theatre.

Neshaminy grads awarded scholarships Neshaminy Valley Music Theatre awarded scholarship grants totaling $4,000 to two recent graduates of Neshaminy High School who are planning to study the arts in college this fall. The recipients from the class of 2022 are Laura Aquilone, of Langhorne, and Rachel Mark, of Feasterville. Aquilone received support from NVMT through the Evelyn McLean Memorial Scholarship Fund, named after the founder of the music theater. Her passion and career goals lie in the field of animation. She has been creating and writing songs from a young age. In the fall, she’ll attend the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, which has one of the top animation degree programs in the country. In addition to writing original stories and designing characters for animation, Aquilone composes and plays original music for her projects. She graduated in the top one-fifth of her class and is a member of the National Honor Society. Mark received support from NVMT through the George W. Kinsley IV Memorial Scholarship for Students of the Woodwind Instruments. She is attending Millersville University to major in special education with a minor in music. Her career goal is to teach stu6

dents with autism and to utilize music to help her students reach their full potential. Starting in middle school, Mark studied both dance and several musical instruments. Now an accomplished performer on the clarinet, tenor saxophone and tuba, she has been involved with the Neshaminy High School marching band, wind ensemble and choir, and has performed in two of the school’s musical productions. At Millersville, she has already signed up for the university’s marching band and intends to audition for the school’s concert band, concert choir and musical productions. She hopes to return to the area after graduating from Millersville to teach in the Neshaminy or Bensalem school districts. NVMT is a nonprofit scholarship organization offering competitive grants since its founding in 1956. The organization mounts an annual musical, the proceeds from which go into a scholarship fund. Generous donors have also contributed to build the fund. To date, NVMT has awarded more than $165,000 in scholarships to nearly 200 students. NVMT’s 2023 production is The Addams Family. Auditions will be held this fall. Visit nvmt.org, call 215-860-1584 or email nvmt@verizon.net for more information. ••

Family Service Association of Bucks County recently received a Bucks Innovation & Improvement Grant of $12,500 from Foundations Community Partnership to address a growing issue. According to data from Family Service’s Call Center, children in every socioeconomic group across Bucks County are experiencing unprecedented mental health challenges. Many of these children in crisis cannot be treated by Family Service clinicians due to barriers set by many commercial insurance providers. This funding will help support outof-pocket costs for a portion of these children to be treated by any of the Family Service Masters-level clinicians, all of whom are willing to counsel them, as they already do for Medicaid clients. “Even prior to the pandemic, we were seeing an increase in mental health crises for our children and youth,” said Julie Dees, chief executive officer at Family Service. “This is both frustrating and sad because it is preventable. We have a highly-skilled team of clinicians, who have consistently proven successful in counseling our Medicaid clients. And while commercial clients have the same critical needs, they must be wait-listed for treatment due to a barrier that frankly does not need to be there. “Family Service is grateful to FCP for this funding because it will absolutely help to bridge this gap in coverage until a long-term solution is determined and allow these struggling children to get the immediate counseling they need.” Visit fsabc.org for more information. ••

three trails that are color-coded by the degree of challenge they provide. These are ideal for ages 7 to adult and include challenges made of cable, rope and wood that span between platforms built around trees. These challenges include bridges, netted tunnels, gliding rides and zip lines. Trails for beginners take climbers 10 to 12 feet in the air while more difficult trails reach heights up to 50 feet above the forest floor. KidTrails will soon follow to offer excitement to pint-sized climbers ages 4-7. The two trails include similar challenges to those in the main park. However, KidTrails is built to scale to accommodate the stride and reach of younger climbers. These trails are 2-3 feet off the ground, so adults can walk near children. Two additional attractions are under construction and will open this season -- ZipTrails self-guided zip lines and Zip Racer dual racing zip lines. For all TreeTrails adventures, staff helps guests put on harnesses and climbing gear and provides them with a park and equipment briefing. Guests using the main adventure park, ZipTrails and KidTrails are monitored while they practice with gear before taking to the trees for self-guided adventures. Once practice is complete, adventurers in the main park and ZipTrails climb to a main platform -- the starting point for courses they can explore for two hours. KidTrails guests can play for an hour. Visit TreeTrails.com/Trevose for tickets and more information. ••

 From an action movie beer release to plans for another location, the Bristol-based company is at the top of its game The Times

Longtime friends Mike Beresky, Phil Harris and Jake Howell still remember the mantra taught to them by their Pennwood Middle School football coach -- “Don’t get satisfied.” In fact, it’s written on the wall of Second Sin Brewing, which the trio opened in November 2019 at 1500 Grundy Lane in Bristol. The sentiment means to never get complacent and always strive to be better, something they practice at their brewery. The Times recently caught up with Beresky, of Yardley, who shared details on how Second Sin keeps upping the ante, from its creative nine-part, movie-themed release this month to expanding operations to another location. Currently, Second Sin is in the midst of Action August, inspired by the guys’ passion for action films. Rather than brainstorming one or two beers to go with the theme, they did something even cooler. “We wrote out a script for an action movie and have broken it up into nine beers. If you follow along throughout August and collect these beers, you’ll see the story play out in one coherent storyline,” explained Beresky. “And if you take the labels off and put them together, it will form a movie poster.” Two installments are dropping weekly (the final will be a single release). However, this intense schedule isn’t exactly new for them, especially brewer Howell, of Fairless Hills. “We release a new beer every week, and those beers are, for the most part, brand new recipes. We rarely repeat a recipe,” said Beresky. “We want to provide a new experience for customers every time they come in.” 8

Pouring pursuits: Mike Beresky, co-founder of Bristol’s Second Sin Brewing, reflects on the past three years and shares details about what’s to come. This, added Beresky, is one of the major perks of being a smaller brewery -they can do stuff that the more established companies can’t. Second Sin is also living proof that smaller breweries can hold their own against the big guys. In the spring, Second Sin was one of 64 breweries to participate in Breweries in PA’s annual PA Beer March Madness, which allows fans to vote for the best brewery in the entire state. The first round, said Beresky, was “divisive to the people of Bristol,” who had to choose between them and Odd Logic Brewing Company. Not only did Second Sin win this bracket, it then came out victorious against New Trail Brewing Company and Troegs Independent Brewing, two of the biggest names in the industry. Second Sin advanced to the final four before getting ousted by Pour Man’s Brewing Company. “If we had to lose to somebody, I’m glad we lost to another small brewery,” said Beresky. “Plus, if people didn’t know about us, it was free marketing. And the people that had our beer, they really spoke about it. They really pushed that what we’re doing is good and that the product is of high quality.” Second Sin is also currently the No. 9 rated brewery in the state on the Untappd

app. There’s even a loyal group of fans who call themselves “Disciples” and have a dedicated Facebook page. Beresky, Howell and Harris, of Fallsington, have come a long way from their first attempt at brewing. This took place around 2007, a year after graduating from Pennsbury High School, with a Mr. Beer home kit. Though Beresky described it as “terrible,” their skills would someday improve. While attending Penn State, Howell began using home kits obtained directly from brew shops. As he started making his own recipes and fine tuning his process, he began to really enjoy it. After graduating in 2011, Howell spent a year in a “normal person job.” And he couldn’t have hated it more. “The man with an astrophysics and physics degree decided to take an unpaid internship at Climax Brewing in Jersey to learn how to do it on a real system,” reflected Beresky, who said Howell’s professional experience has made all the difference in Second Sin’s product. It was at this point that Howell got Harris, a fellow Penn State grad, and Beresky, who went to Temple, back into home brewing. Their output was so great that they had to host regular parties at

LOWERBUCKSTIMES.COM

Harris’ place to get rid of all the beer. Within a year, the three had a serious discussion. Could they turn this into a business? Would it be doable? They eventually moved into 1500 Grundy Lane, where Broken Goblet was housed before its move to Bensalem. Yet three months into their operation, COVID-19 closures struck. “You can make a million business plans. I think we had somewhere like 45 different versions of our very first business plan,” said Beresky. “But you can never plan for a global pandemic. That was quite the shocker, a once-in-a-100-year thing.” Still, they quickly pivoted. Within two days, the three were “growlering out” beers and spending almost 12 hours daily hand-canning just one batch of beer. New beer releases continued, and artwork was added to the cans. At the end of 2020, Second Sin released the double IPA “I Survived 2020.” It’s now become an end-of-year tradition to release a new “I Survived” edition based on what trials have occurred the past 12 months. With things (sort of) back to normal, Second Sin is eyeing locations for a second taproom, either in Bucks County or on the border of Montgomery County. The goal is for the next spot to have more foot traffic, something Beresky said the Bristol taproom lacks. “You kind of have to know about us to find us. It’s tough that way,” he said. “So we’re looking to solve that problem with the next location by making foot traffic a priority.” Right now, Howell is the only one of the trio who works at the brewery full-time. Beresky and Harris have other full-time jobs, something one of them may re-evaluate if and when the second spot opens. Beresky praised his wife, with whom he recently welcomed a baby, for being understanding of his crazy schedule. Though Beresky doesn’t get much sleep, he’s thrilled that Second Sin is resonating with the masses and he’s excited for what’s to come. There’s a forthcoming collaboration with Troegs and, as Second Sin’s name keeps getting out there, who knows what else. ••

PA FOP backs Oz Dr. Mehmet Oz, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, was unanimously endorsed by the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police. The announcement of the endorsement vote was made during Oz’s campaign stop at the FOP’s annual conference. “I am honored to be endorsed by the Pennsylvania Fraternal Order of Police. We owe each and every officer who bravely serves our deepest thanks. Throughout my career as a cardiothoracic surgeon, I operated on brave police officers who were injured in the line of duty. And as Pennsylvania’s next U.S. senator, I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our law enforcement for safer streets and stronger bonds in communities across Pennsylvania,” he said. Oz said the FOP invited Democrat John Fetterman to attend, but he did not. He said Pennsylvania cannot afford Fetterman’s “disastrous and dangerous ideas” to put one-third of inmates back on the streets, decriminalize drugs, strip police of resources and prioritize criminals over safer communities. ••

Gun-safety group backs Fitzpatrick

Giffords PAC, the gun-safety organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced its endorsement of Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in the 1st Congressional District. Giffords said, “When I served in Congress, I often worked across the aisle to find solutions to the issues impacting my constituents. If something was a good idea, I believed that it shouldn’t matter what party it came from, so long as it would make a real difference in the lives of everyday Americans. In my current work advocating for common-sense gun-safety WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

laws, the same holds true. Keeping our communities safe is not a partisan issue, and I’ve been proud to work with Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick to save lives from gun violence. In a time when Washington feels more polarized than ever, his support for policies like universal background checks and strong extreme risk laws shows that we can still come together to make meaningful change. Rep. Fitzpatrick has always stood up to the corrupt interests of the gun lobby, and I know he’ll continue to be a much-needed, bipartisan voice for gun safety.“ Fitzpatrick said, “I am honored to earn the endorsement of Giffords - an organization at the forefront of finding common-sense solutions to gun violence. Former Congresswoman Giffords knows all too well the scorn gun violence is upon our nation. Like so many families, my family has also been affected by gun violence. We lost my great-uncle, an NYPD patrolman, to gun violence. Recent tragedies occurring in schools have brought this issue to the forefront. No parent in my district or anywhere in this country should ever have to fear sending their child to school. The highest responsibility that we have as elected officials and as human beings is to protect our children and communities. We must not allow these tragedies to go unanswered. I have long been a leader of bipartisan gun safety legislation such as the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, the NICS Denial Notification Act and the Raise the Age Act. I will continue partnering with Giffords and other allies to responsibly curb gun violence in America.” In 2019 and 2021, Fitzpatrick was an original cosponsor of H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, and in 2022, he played a role in passing some of the most wide-ranging gun-safety legislation to ever come to the House floor, including the Protecting Our Kids Act and the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act,

Garrity endorses Oz

State Treasurer Stacy Garrity endorsed fellow Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz, the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate. Garrity is co-chairwoman of his campaign. “Mehmet Oz carries in him the drive and idealism of the first-generation American. A pioneering surgeon, accomplished businessman and unrivaled communicator, Dr. Oz will be a champion for personal liberties and the American Dream he knows firsthand. I look forward to the day he becomes Sen. Oz, R-Pennsylvania,” Garrity said. “State Treasurer Stacy Garrity is a tireless advocate for the people of Pennsylvania and has been a valued friend throughout this race. She’s worked around the clock to help highlight how critical it is to bring a dose of reality to Washington, and I look forward to her continuing to join me on the trail,” Oz said. ••

2 grants for Snipes

Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-10th dist.) recently secured two state grants to support Snipes Farm & Education Center’s mission to share produce with seniors in the community and provide education to low-income children through its summer camp program. A $100,000 grant was used to purchase a refrigerated food delivery vehicle and an electric “utility task vehicle.” The refrigerated food delivery vehicle is being used to deliver fresh produce, grown on the farm, to senior centers and partners across Bucks County. The electric UTV allows staff to get around the farm and is helping Snipes meet its commitment to sustainable energy. The second grant of $33,419 was used by Snipes Camp to provide educational programming for 21 children living in the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter this summer. “Snipes Farm and the Snipes family have a long and admirable history in Bucks County of giving back to the community and helping those in need,” Santarsiero said. “I was happy

to support these grants for the vehicles and summer camp, both of which help them share the bounty of the farm with more community members.” “Healthy food should be for everyone, no matter their income level,” said Jonathan Snipes, executive director. “And providing enriching, science-based programs in nature for the most vulnerable kids is one of the best things we do at Snipes Farm. This grant support helps our mission come true. We are thrilled.” Snipes Farm & Education Center is a 501(c)(3) educational organization located in Morrisville. The Snipes family are 11th generation Bucks County farmers, dating to 1688, and have operated the present Snipes Farm since 1808. More information on Snipes Farm & Education Center can be found at snipesfarm.org. ••

House bans keeping ‘big cats’ as pets

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Big Cat Public Safety Act (H.R. 263) by a vote of 278 to 134. The bill would prohibit keeping tigers, lions and other big cat species as pets, and ban direct public contact like cub petting. Sponsored and championed by Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick and Michael Quigley, the bill moves to the Senate. Since 1992, there have been at least 100 incidents involving big cats kept as pets or in private menageries. Among them, a juvenile tiger wandered in a Houston neighborhood in 2021 and an escaped pet cougar was found lounging in a driveway in Parkland, Florida, in 2019. In 2013, a 400-pound pet lion escaped in Fairfield Beach, Ohio. In 2009, a 330pound tiger was discovered in a backyard in Ingram, Texas. In 2008, a leopard approached a woman in her yard in Neosho, Missouri. In 2005, a tiger roamed loose for days before being shot and killed in Simi Valley, California. Fitzpatrick said, “As a member of the bipartisan Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, I am committed to ensuring our government is doing its part to promote animal welfare. For too long, big cats have been mistreated, exploited and abused in private roadside zoos. Our Big Cat Public Safety Act will prohibit the unlicensed, private possession of big cats and restrict their direct contact with the public, and I am proud to again join Congressman Quigley in championing this bipartisan bill.” ••

ESSENTIAL CONTENT | WATCHDOG JOURNALISM

Local news organizations are under pressure. Local news strengthens our community, but local papers across the country are under threat. Big Tech takes advantage of the news and information created by local publishers, but they won’t pay for it. The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) is a bipartisan bill that allows local news companies like this one to negotiate with Big Tech to ensure that they are treated fairly and compensated justly. If Congress doesn’t pass the JCPA, communities across America will continue to lose quality local, fact-based news coverage.

Contact your member of Congress to support the JCPA and ensure Big Tech doesn’t cancel local news: (202) 224-3121
