Discovery Center at Point Breeze opens May 20

Officials will unveil circa 1819 painting of Joseph Bonaparte in its original frame that has never before been seen in public

D&R Greenway Land Trust welcomes community members to the public opening of the new Discovery Center at Point Breeze on Saturday, May 20 from 1- 5 p.m.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. in front of the paneled mahogany doors at the entrance to the Discovery Center, 101 Park St., Bordentown.

Barbara “Blue Jay” Michalski will offer a Lenape blessing.

Bordentown City Mayor Jennifer Sciortino will be joined with state and local dignitaries to cut the ribbon, along with D&R Greenway President and CEO Linda Mead who oversaw the design of the new museum.

“The two years it took to renovate the 200-year-old house, that was lived in by nuns and priests for the past 80 years, was a flash compared to the property’s 13,000 years of history,” Mead said. “It was a flash that has now put the Bordentown community on the world stage, with a welcoming place full of stories and discoveries that will delight history lovers, nature buffs, and artists alike.”

Preservation of the former estate of Joseph Napoleon Bonaparte, exiled King of Spain and older

brother of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France, by the state, City of Bordentown and D&R Greenway in 2020, was heralded in the New York Times, the Times of London and the Spanish News Service

Following two years of renovations by D&R Greenway, the land trust is opening the former Gardener’s House, the only remaining structure from the Bonaparte era. Guests will be treated to stories of

Leader in innovation

the Crown Jewels, archaeological displays and a circa 1819 painting of Joseph Bonaparte in its original frame that has never before been seen in public.

Local artists will showcase unique features of the land while inviting visitors to discover the special places for themselves. Even the restrooms, named the Delaware River and the Crosswicks Creek Water Closets, share facts and sto-

ries about the waterways and history connected to Point Breeze.

Peter Dawson, chair of the Board of Trustees of D&R Greenway, says, “We are excited to offer this opportunity to discover a new place that is important in history and as a unique natural area, while recognizing people whose stewardship of land has protected this place and others for generation upon generation.”

Many centuries before Bonaparte lived at Point Breeze, the land was occupied by the Lenape. Chief Red Feather, an 88-year-old wisdom keeper from southern New Jersey, will be at the grand opening with unique Native American crafts made from stone, wood and leather, offered for purchase. Recognition of the Lenape as the Original People of the Lenapekoking (land of the Lenape) is commemorated with a newly designed flag that recognizes the three Lenape clans: the turkey, the wolf and the turtle. The native peoples are known for their spiritual connection with the natural world that is recognized in the new Discovery Center.

Members of the public are invited to the Public Grand Opening on May 20 to tour of the new Discovery Center and Historic Garden, view art and never-beforeseen exhibits and a Delaware River sturgeon sculpture by artist Kate Graves.

Admission is at no cost.  Donations are gladly accepted, with a suggested donation of $10 to support conservation of this historic and ecologically sensitive property. All are welcome to discovery.

Princeton University leads an NSF-funded regional consortium advancing photonics research

A new Princeton-led collaboration to drive economic and technological advancements in photonics has been awarded a development grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Regional Innovation Engines, or NSF Engines, program.

Photonics is the branch of science that includes lasers, optical fibers and cutting-edge light-based innovations.

The grant will lay the groundwork for a multistate collaboration called “Advancing Photonics Technologies” that aims to advance research, transition discoveries into the economy, and build the region’s technological workforce.

The collaboration includes universities and community colleges, leading photonics companies, statewide economic and workforce development programs, and technology accelerators and incubators that help transition research into startup companies.

Photonics, which involves the control of light for use in technologies, has applications in healthcare, clean energy, computing, telecommunications, advanced manufacturing, and more.

It has the potential to improve cancer detection, food safety, smart phones, computing and self-driving cars, among other uses.

The Advancing Photonics Technologies collaboration is one of more than 40 teams across the nation selected to receive one of the

first-ever NSF Engines Development Awards, which provide up to two years of funding toward the planning of a multistate initiative to create economic, societal and technological opportunities for their regions.

The awards enable the teams to prepare strong proposals for becoming future NSF Engines, which will each have the opportunity to receive up to $160 million to implement their plans, according to a press release.

Princeton University will lead the development-stage collaboration along with co-lead Rowan University, both in New Jersey, with partners throughout neighboring states Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York.

“These NSF Engines Development Awards lay the foundation for emerging hubs of innovation and potential future NSF Engines,” said NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan. “These awardees are part of the fabric of NSF’s vision to create opportunities everywhere and enable innovation anywhere.”

He said they will build robust regional partnerships rooted in scientific and technological innovation in every part of our nation.

“Through these planning awards, NSF is seeding the future for inplace innovation in communities and to grow their regional economies through research and partnerships,” Panchanathan added. “This will unleash ideas, talent, pathways and resources to create vibrant inno-

Learning the court of law

Bordentown Regional High School Mock Trial team reflects on Mock Trial competition

There are many facets stepping into a court of law.

The New Jersey State Bar Foundation High School Mock Trial competition allows high school students to not only learn about the facets whether it’s a lawyer, a witness, or even a member of a jury, but they literally become the different roles in the annual competition.

The Bar Foundation also holds a courtroom artist competition.

Members of the Mock Trial team at Bordentown Regional High School know this firsthand as they have been gearing up year after year for the competition.

The team at Bordentown Regional, led by Debate Coach John Tobias, has done pretty well. Last year, they came in second out of 200-plus teams. This year, they came in the top 12 out of 209 teams.

County competitions were held in January and February. In March, regional, regional finals, semi-finals and the final competition were held at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick.

During the 2023 competition season, the team poured their “heart and soul” into a libel social media gone wrong case.

Due to COVID-19, only senior Olivia McGlone had some experience stepping into a real courtroom for the competition during her freshman year. She has participated as a witness – very much like impromptu competitive acting – in all her four years on mock trial.

Tobias noted McGlone is a member of the school’s theater Thespian Society Troupe 6803. The team has a few members who are thespians.

This was the first time in three years that the competition was held in person.

“The transition to virtual to inperson was definitely challenging for some,” McGlone said. “Prior to this I was the only person on team who had been in person before. I kind of knew how it felt to be in the courtroom and had that pressure before of being watched by a real judge, real lawyers, have a jury look at me rather than speaking to an imaginary one.

“We all definitely had to adjust to knowing how to use our space, how to control our body language [since

we were] no longer seen from [chest up]. We are actually [in the courtroom] with everyone’s eyes on you. Adjusting to that pressure added anxiety.”

For juniors Ajay Donthula and Jeremiah Paul, the in-person learning curve and transitioning from being witness roles to lawyer roles were challenges for them this year.

“The transition from witness to lawyer was a lot more difficult than we thought,” Paul said. “From just having to memorize direct examination as a witness and knowing how to find loopholes on cross [examination] to memorizing two direct examinations, knowing all the objections that we needed to use if we got objections on our direct examinations and how to object other people’s direct examinations.”

Donthula said mock trial was part of their everyday for a good month or two, which strengthened his time management skills of juggling sports, academics and mock trial.

“We kept practicing in the middle of class or even just the thought

Jaw Pain and Discomfort? It Could Be TMD

Imagine waking up one morning and not being able to open your mouth. Or imagine not being able to chew or speak — or even yawn — without significant pain.

This is the reality for millions of people throughout the United States who suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), a musculoskeletal disorder often associated with repetitive motion of the jaw.

At Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center Princeton Rehabilitation, specially trained physical therapists offer individualized treatment for patients with TMD.

Second Most Common Form of Musculoskeletal Pain

Found on both sides of the jaw, the temporomandibular joint is one of the most complex joints in the body. It serves as a hinge that connects the jawbone to the skull and comprises numerous components, including bones, cartilage, muscles, and ligaments.

These components control the movement of the jaw and allow you to open your mouth so you can talk, eat, yawn, and more.

Temporomandibular joint disorders are a group of more than 30 conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in joint.

However, most TMDs are typically related to the muscles in the jaw. In fact, TMD pain is one of the most common forms of musculoskeletal pain, second only to low back pain, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The NIH estimates that between 11 and 12 million adults in the United States are affected by temporomandibular joint pain, and that TMD is twice as common in women than in men, especially in women between 35 and 44 years old, according to the NIH.

While TMD can be related to an acute injury, in most cases the exact cause is unknown. For many people, symptoms start without obvious reason and may be linked to repetitive motion of the jaw.


Additionally, people who clench their jaw, grind their teeth, or who regularly chew gum or on objects like pens, may be more prone to TMD than others. Poor posture has also been shown to contribute to TMD.

Pain, Limited Range of Motion

Individuals suffering from TMD often experience the following symptoms:

• Intermittent jaw discomfort, soreness, and throbbing pain (may wake you from sleep).

• Headache and/or neck pain.

• Pain spreading behind the eyes, face, shoulder, neck, and/or back.

• Earaches or ringing in the ears.

• Limited range of motion in the jaw.

• Clenching or grinding the teeth (often at night).

• Painful clicking, popping, or grating in the jaw joint when opening or closing the mouth.

• Change in upper or lower teeth alignment.

It is important to note that popping or clicking without pain is common, considered normal, and does not need treatment.

For many people, symptoms of TMD may last only a short time and go away on their own However, in some cases they can become chronic or long lasting, and if left untreated could lead to limitations such as difficulty chewing and swallowing and altered speech because of muscle fatigue.

If you experience jaw pain or other symptoms of TMD, see your primary care provider or dentist for an evaluation.

Individualized Physical Therapy

As the NIH notes, there is no standard test to diagnose TMD. Your doctor will review your symptoms and take a detailed medical history. They will also ask you to describe your pain, when and where it occurs, and what makes it better or worse.

In addition, they will examine your head, neck, face and

jaw, and may recommend imaging tests such as an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan to aid in diagnosis and rule out other conditions.

According to the NIH, once TMD is diagnosed, treatment typically begins with self-care measures such as:

• Eating soft foods.

• Applying heat or cold to the face in combination with exercises to gently stretch and strengthen the jaw muscles.

• Reducing habits such as jaw clenching and gum chewing.

• Practicing good posture.

• Reducing stress.

Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your doctor may also recommend physical therapy.

Physical therapy at Princeton Rehabilitation starts with a comprehensive assessment of your posture, head, neck, and jaw movements. Based on the findings of the assessment, specially trained physical therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan that may include:

• Manual therapy.

• Targeted exercises.

• Posture awareness and re-education.

• Breathing techniques.

Goals of treatment include:

• Increased range of motion.

• Decreased muscle tension.

• Improved posture.

• Decreased pain.

Princeton Rehabilitation offers physical therapy for TMD at the South Brunswick Wellness Center in Monmouth Junction. A prescription from your physician is required and most major insurance plans and Medicare are accepted.

Reforms needed to protect our public lands

The chunky woodland sandpiper called the American woodcock is a favorite of spring birdwatchers due to the male’s acrobatic courtship display flights. Making a distinctive buzz call and melodious twittering song, males rise hundreds of feet in the air before making plunging dives earthward.

Though woodcocks are part of the sandpiper family, they mostly live inland and feed on soil earthworms and arthropods using their long, sensitive-tipped beaks. They’re considered a species of “least concern,” meaning they’re in little peril of extinction.

So it’s astounding that an agency within the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) – whose mission includes protecting threatened and endangered species – would cook up a project to create new habitat for these game birds by destroying nesting and foraging habitat for two rare bird species.

That’s exactly what happened in February and March, when the Division of Fish and Wildlife razed 19 acres of exceptional resource value wetlands and adjacent upland forests in the Glassboro Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Clayton Borough, Gloucester County.

Before being logged and bulldozed, the land provided habitat for barred owls, a threatened species in New Jersey, and red-shouldered hawks, an endangered species. It also contained mature forests and two rare plants, including a wildflower known as showy meadow-beauty; and vernal pools known to support native woodland frog populations. Also destroyed were archaeological sites where the

earliest of New Jersey indigenous cultures were being researched.

Now the land is a barren wasteland, flattened and with no vegetation remaining. All natural resources – plants, animals, soils and surface geology – were altered, removed or exterminated.

On April 6 the DEP’s Bureau of Coastal and Land Use Compliance and Enforcement (CLUE) issued a Notice of Violation to the DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Bureau of Land Management for the destruction of protected wetlands. It’s the same notice that would be given to a private developer who illegally destroyed wetlands or habitat for protected species.

This week, CLUE set a timeline for Fish and Wildlife to submit a restoration proposal for 2.79 acres of freshwater wetlands and 11.95 acres of freshwater wetland transition area that were destroyed. The restoration proposal must be developed by July 15 and will be subject to a public comment period.

CLUE also assessed $266,000 in administrative penalties against Fish and Wildlife, treating itself the same way that any outside party would be treated.

What’s not in CLUE’s administrative order – but critically important – is making sure that a violation like this will never happen again. A much more stringent process needs to be put in place to review all forest and wildlife management plans on public lands, with strong public notice and input requirements.

To his credit, DEP Commissioner Shawn LaTourette took responsibility for this egregious action. At a State Assembly budget

hearing in April, legislators grilled LaTourette about the Glassboro WMA clear-cutting and bulldozing. “What are you going to do to prevent it from happening in the future?” asked Assemblyman John McKeon (D-27), pointing out that a developer could face jail time if convicted of the same violation.

Assemblyman Gerry Scharfenberger (R13) pointed out that the loss of forest harms the state’s efforts to mitigate climate change by using forests to sequester carbon. “We’re looking for carbon-capture systems, and we lose a 21-acre wooded area,” he said.

The commissioner blamed it on “a breakdown” in both personnel and process. “We will put in better guardrails to make sure it does not happen again,” he promised.

Now DEP needs to follow through on that pledge by telling the public what improved protocols will be put in place, and taking public comments on whatever changes they propose. No significant management projects should move forward until the necessary safeguards are in place.

The destruction at Glassboro WMA was more than a simple breakdown in communications; it’s evidence of systemic dysfunction. How is it possible for one division within the DEP to not know about the presence of wetlands and rare species habitat at a site it wanted to drastically alter?

Had the public been notified in advance of the plans for creating woodcock habitat and given a chance to comment, the whole Glassboro debacle could likely have been prevented.

The violation also highlights the need for

the state to move forward on implementing the recommendations of the Forest Stewardship Task Force, a group appointed by State Senator Bob Smith (D-17), chairman of the Senate Environment and Energy Committee.

One key recommendation is to direct the DEP to conduct a statewide planning and mapping process for public forestland, including better protection of resources historically and culturally significant to indigenous people. A planning process such as this could identify appropriate places to create habitat for species that require open fields without clearing mature forests or protected wetlands, while also identifying areas of mature forests that should be protected as carbon reserves.

Other recommendations include directing the DEP to develop formal rules governing approval of management plans on public lands, with public input; and prohibiting the DEP from including commercial profit from timber operations as a goal in any forest management plan for public land.

Thousands of unneeded medications were collected in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s bi-annual National Prescription Take Back Day.

Some 663,775 pounds of unneeded medications were dropped off at nearly 5,000 collection sites on April 22.

Since its inception in 2010, DEA’s bi-annual National Prescription Take Back Day has removed more than 17 million pounds of unnecessary medications from communities across the country.

DEA’s New Jersey Division and law enforcement partners collected more than 15,000 pounds of unwanted, unused, and expired medications.

Since the inception of the program, New Jersey residents have surrendered more than 372,000 pounds or 186 tons of these medications.

For more than a decade, Take Back

Day has helped Americans easily rid their homes of unneeded medications— those that are old, unwanted, or expired. These medications can be a gateway to addiction, and have helped fuel the opioid epidemic.

“Communities across the country again answered the call to rid their homes of unneeded medications to protect loved ones from deadly drugs and drug poisonings,” said DEA Administrator Anne Milgram. “National Prescription Drug Take Back Day continues to protect our communities and create healthier environments by offering safe disposal of prescription medications.”

“The DEA New Jersey Division always appreciates the participation of New Jersey residents in cleaning out their medicine cabinets and removing the temptation for people in the house to experiment with these medications,” said DEA New Jersey Acting

Special Agent in Charge Daniel J. Kafafian. “I also want to thank the more than 240 state, county, and local police departments that assisted in this endeavor. Every pill removed from the home is an opportunity to prevent possible misuse of these prescriptions.”

DEA continues to expand opportunities to make safe disposal of medications more accessible nationwide. A list of permanent drug-drop boxes located in communities across the country can be found at spring/main;jsessionid=iY8g229hjOJ bFO5bFU4HBniGx1dryBzmPtKzBxEh.web2?execution=e1s1

Safe medication disposal receptacles along with DEA Take Back events provide families easy, no-cost opportunities to get rid of unnecessary medicines stored in the home that can be susceptible to abuse and theft.

“The best decision we ever made and the most important too! My wife Fran’s health was declining and even with daily support from a caregiver, it all got to be too much for me to handle.

Before coming here, I researched 12 other communities but they just didn’t measure up. Here, Fran and I are treated with the utmost respect and dignity. The people are amazing. The staff is very attentive and caring. We have everything we could possibly need – loving friends, diverse activities and exceptional care. We couldn’t be happier or more in love!”

Capital Health Cancer Center Approved as a Participating National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program Site

Pennington, NJ – Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell is now an NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) affiliate site of the Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium (AHCC). As a participating site, Capital Health Cancer Center will now offer residents in the greater Mercer and Bucks County region access to new and innovative NCI-sponsored clinical trials in the cancer prevention and control, screening, care delivery, and treatment areas.

“The vision for our Cancer Center is clear,” said Al Maghazehe, president and CEO of Capital Health, “To deliver exceptional care for our patients in a convenient location, with the clinical and support services they need and the research to support their fight and the advancement of care. Our participation in NCORP brings more opportunities to our patients, who are at the heart of everything we do.”

“Capital Health is known for its commitment to providing people of the greater Mercer and Bucks County regions with the highest quality care close to home,” said Dr. Cataldo Doria, medical director of Capital Health Cancer Center. “With the NCORP site designation, our Cancer Center will provide patients access to cancer clinical trials and cancer care delivery studies that are available at top institutions around the nation. We look forward to contributing to NCORP’s national network of research that focuses on cancer prevention, screening, and treatment, especially in regard to how it affects access to care among underserved populations. This aligns well with Capital Health’s mission to serve urban and suburban communities in our area.”

“Academic medical centers play an important part in cancer research, but most cancer care is provided in local communities,” said Dr. Doria. “By expanding research outside academic settings as an AHCC NCORP site, we will provide access to a larger patient population that is more diverse and better reflects the

Capital Health Cancer Center in Pennington, New Jersey.

complexity of cancer care.”

As part of AHCC NCORP, Capital Health Cancer Center’s team of providers and researchers will help patients gain access to clinical trials across a broad range of cancer care benchmarks, including symptom management, prevention, screening, surveillance, care delivery and quality of life. The NCORP network’s diversity in patient age, race, and geographic location, provides a natural laboratory for developing improved strategies for cancer prevention, more efficient cancer trials, and a better balance between the risks and benefits of interventions.

“On behalf of the entire organization, I am excited to welcome Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell to Atlantic Health Cancer Consortium Community Oncology Research Program (AHCC CORP), the only New Jersey-based NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP),” said Dr. Eric Whitman, principal investigator at AHCC CORP and medical director of Atlantic Health System Cancer Care. “Together we will continue to advance the science of cancer care and shine new lights on cancer journey pathways for our patients.”

To help connect patients to advanced care options, research staff at Capital Health Cancer Center will select trials from the NCORP research portfolio that may benefit the Center’s patient population. Appropriate studies are then presented to oncology physician teams to determine if they are good fits for specific patients. When a match is made, a primary investigator is appointed, and Capital Health research staff open the trial for Capital Health Cancer Center patients.

To learn more about open clinical trials at Capital Health Cancer Center, visit to sign up for email updates or call 609-537-6363 to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians.
