Revisit a classic

 Members of the Community Theatre are gearing up to present Twelve Angry Men, at the Community Center in late-July. Set in the 1950’s, Twelve Angry Men is an examination of a group of jurors, brought together to deliberate an open-and-shut case. Entrusted with the power to send a teenager to the electric chair for killing his father, the jurors are confined to a small jury room until they reach a unanimous decision. The play examines the men’s personalities, prejudices, biases, indifference, anger, judgments, cultural differences, ignorance, and fears. These traits hamper the jurors’ decisionmaking abilities, causing them to ignore the case’s real issues. Directed by Melinda Matula, the play’s cast includes John Dunn, Tom Geigel, Scott Harris, Chuck Jackson, Peter Jackson, Ron Kelly, Tom Lorenz, Mike Marotta, Tom Matula, Bob Middleton, Dave Routzahn, Chris Scola, and Mike Smith. Performances will take place Thu Jul 29 thru Sat Jul 31 at 7:30 pm. Tickets, available at the door, are $15; $10 for seniors and students.

Want a BETTER LIBRARY for Haddonfield?












1. Plans and documents are available at the Borough Web site: 2. You can send a message to the Commissioners via the Borough Web site: 3. The Friends of the Library is a group of passionate, likeminded volunteers who give their time, energy, and talent to sustain a strong and vibrant public library in our town. It has not taken a position on this issue.


If you have specific expertise and wish to help move this project forward, please call David Hunter at 856-428-3399.

Building an addition in front of the Public Library building would be a huge mistake, for many reasons. The Commissioners and the community need not make such a mistake, because an alternative site for a new library is available. In a report dated June 2010, a blue-ribbon committee concluded that the Allen Avenue Parking Lot is “worthy of serious consideration.” We, the undersigned residents of Haddonfield, hereby petition the Commissioners – before deciding to renovate the existing building and erect an addition in front of it – (a) to order an independent, detailed investigation and evaluation of the Allen Avenue site and (b) to commission the preparation of conceptual plans, with estimated costs, for at least two building configurations on that site. Name: ..................................................................................... Address: ................................................................................. E-Mail: .................................................................................... Mail to: David Hunter, 6 Haddon Avenue S, Haddonfield NJ 08033

___ 1. VISIT ... the site (see map at left). Walk around. Visualize. Imagine! ___ 2. CONSIDER ... the benefits of a new, designed-to-suit building at Allan Avenue versus a “best we can do” basic renovation1 of the existing confined, inflexible, inadequate building. ___ 3. READ ... the report1 of the “blueribbon” Sites Committee that concluded that the Allen Avenue site is “worthy of serious consideration.” ___ 4. WRITE ... to the Commissioners2 and urge them to have the architect do the same kind of study for Allen Avenue as he did for the current site. ___ 5. ATTEND ... the Commission meeting on Tuesday, July 27 at 7:30pm, Borough Hall. Speak up! Ask questions! ___ 6. TALK ... with family, friends, and neighbors. Encourage them to check off the items on this “To Do” list. ___ 7. REMAIN ... open to possibilities. ___ 8. PLEDGE ... to help ensure that the Commissioners and the community make the right decision. ___ 9. JOIN ... the Friends of the Library.3 ___ 10. SIGN ... the petition (at left).

Thank you!

Attention Haddonfield Residents!

THIS IS IT: OUR LAST CHANCE FOR A BETTER LIBRARY On June 9, the Borough’s library architect presented four options to the community: • Option 1: Renovation to make the existing building ADA-compliant. • Option 2: As above, plus alterations to improve functionality. • Option 3: Renovation as above, plus an addition of 8,360 sqft in front of the existing building. • Option 4: Renovation as above, plus an addition of 13,800 sqft in front of the existing building. Option 4 consumes so much open space in front of the building that it has been universally rejected. It is believed that none of the commissioners favors this option. Option 3 takes up less open space, but still suffers from several fundamental problems. It destroys the view of a beloved, heritage-listed building and it is likely to be looked on unfavorably by the Haddonfield Historic Preservation Commission and the State Historic Sites Council. There is a widespread feeling that voters would give this proposal the “thumbs down.” It is believed that at least two of the commissioners do not favor this option. Option 2 (“ADA Plus”) would improve the functionality of the building and make it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, but would add just 5 sqft of programmatic space. That’s a better library? Option 1 (“ADA”) would make the building ADA-compliant, but that’s all. That’s a better library? Mayor Colombi is on record* as saying, “I personally believe that our community wants and needs a better library and that such a library will require either an addition to the existing building or a new building.” She is believed to be less than enthusiastic about Option 3. And Options 2 and 1 will not give us “a better library.” Commissioner Borden is on record* as saying, “We ... need to bring [the existing building] up to current standards of functionality, usability, safety and handicapped accessibility.” If he comes to the conclusion that Option 3 is likely to go down in a referendum, he may well decide in favor of “ADA Plus.” Commissioner Kasko is on record* as saying, “[W]e can and should improve the library we have, bring it up-to-date on safety codes, make it handicapped accessible, expand its size and usefulness, and make needed repairs.” He is well aware of his constituency’s position on spending public money on this project, so his preference is predictable: “ADA.” Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. By two votes to one ... [drum roll] ... “ADA Plus”! But what if a referendum on “ADA Plus” were to fail? (Advocates of a better library might vote against it, out of disgust. Advocates of spending the minimum might vote against it, preferring the less-expensive “ADA” option.) Acknowledging that possibility, the commissioners might simply implement the “ADA” option, sans a referendum. (They could take the view that the Borough must, by law, bring the building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Even if voters said “no” to “ADA,” the Borough would have to do the work anyway, or risk being sued. So why waste money on a referendum?) The prospect seems gloomy. But it’s not. There is an alternative – Option 5 – that will enable our community to have a library that meets its wants and needs, at a reasonable cost. The answer is a new, designed-to-suit building in the Allen Avenue parking lot. As more and more residents become aware of this alternative, more and more come to the same conclusion that a Sites Study Committee (led by Commissioner Borden) did – the Allen Avenue site is “worthy of serious consideration.” Haddonfield has a simple, stark choice: An inadequate library (“ADA” or “ADA Plus”) or a better library (Allen Avenue). Which would YOU prefer? Which would YOU vote for? Which will it be? * Candidates’ answers to the question “Should Haddonfield build a new library?” posed by the Haddonfield Sun during the 2009 election campaign.

Slurpees for safety

For grown ups

 Kids can chill out with ice-cold Slurpees if they play it safe. The Police Department has partnered with 7-Eleven owner, Mir Sajid, to reward children and teens who wear helmets while riding bikes this summer. Officers will present bike riders they spot wearing helmets with coupons that can be redeemed for free Slurpees at the Haddonfield 7-Eleven (615 Haddon Ave). Children shouldn’t approach police officers seeking coupons. State law requires bikers 17-years-old and younger to wear a helmet. If caught without appropriate safety gear, kids could receive a court summons. The good news? Riders spotted not wearing a helmet will be given 10% off coupons for bike helmets and safety equipment from Sports Authority and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
