Councilman’s unexpected departure leaves vacant seat to be filled

By SEAN PATRICK MURPHY

The Medford Sun

The abrupt resignation of Med- ford Councilman David Brown has some scratching their heads. Medford Township Manager Christopher Schultz confirmed Brown submitted a resignation letter to the township clerk on Nov. 15. “It was a surprise as he had two more years of his term and there was no foreshadowing that he was quitting,” Schultz said. He said the municipal vacancy law dictates the process for re- placement. The local municipal committee of the party in control (in this case, the Republican Party) will submit up to three names for the council to consider. The committee has 15 days to

do that. The council then has 15 days from that period, or 30 days from time of vacancy. “If council does not act or se- lect, I believe the municipal com- mittee selects,” Schultz said. “Councilman Brown’s resigna- tion is understandable,” newly elected councilman James “Randy” Pace said. “His new work schedule next year would increase his absence from council meetings.” The discussion of absences came up at the council’s Nov. 14 meeting. Brown agreed with the other council members that at- tending meetings should be re- quired of all members. The issue came up because Mayor Chris Myers was not at the meeting. By all accounts the

Crime rate stays consistent

Uniform Crime Report shows Medford is still a safe place

By SEAN PATRICK MURPHY

The Medford Sun

The numbers are in for the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and Medford is looking safe. The report, created by the Fed- eral Bureau of Investigation, was issued last week. Medford Police Chief Richard Meder said local numbers reflect

what’s going on in Burlington County. There was a slight increase in violent crime in Medford in 2010, from five reported incidents in 2009 to eight last year. Most nonviolent crime is down from 2009 to 2010: Property crime, from 282 cases to 234; burglary, 65 incidents to 43; larceny-theft, 212 cases to 188; motor vehicle theft,

from five to three; and arson, three incidents to none. Meder said the high marks are because Medford has a very proactive police department that is vigilant in the community. He pointed to the fact that there were no homicides in 2009 or 2010. Meder said he is not surprised

by the results. “They were pretty much con- sistent with what we’ve been see- ing throughout the year,” he said, noting the information is “some- what” useful. “It doesn’t give a true picture, in my opinion of what exactly is occurring,” Meder said. He said the UCR has very spe- cific definitions that don’t neces- sarily meet what he considers things in the state of New Jersey. For example, the UCR guide- lines say a burglary has to be in a structure, so burglary from vehi- cles does not appear. “That number is not indicative of what we see,” Meder said. The UCR also has a strict guideline for rape, which does not include certain types of sexual assaults. While they are useful numbers, the chief said they can be inter- preted a number of different ways. “I think this is only one way of ranking safety,” Meder said. “It’s one tool of many tools that can be used to do that.” In recent months, there has been an uptick in burglaries from unlocked vehicles, not only in Medford but also in nearby com- munities. Residential burglaries are also up. Meder said a number of things factor into rising thefts, including the economy and drug addiction.

SEAN PATRICK MURPHY/The Sun

Medford Police Chief Richard Meder says the Uniform Crime Report is just one of many tools used to help identify and address crime.

He said many arrested are trying to support habits. “I would love to see crime con- tinue to come down,” Meder said, noting he is proud of the fact that nonviolent crime was down in 2010 from 2009. “I’d like to see that continue to come down in 2011.” And while there was not a sig- nificant increase in violent crime in 2010, the chief said he would like to see that number come down as well. Other stats released in the re- port include the population in

Medford, 2010 – 22,914, 2009 –

22,872; forcible rape, 2010 – 1, 2009 – 0; robbery, 2010 – 3, 2009 – 0; and aggravated assault, 2010 – 4, 2009 –

Medford Arts Center puts on Dickens Festival

By SEAN PATRICK MURPHY

The Medford Sun

The Medford Arts Center helps run the Dickens Festival and also does a whole lot more. The festival, which takes place Dec. 3, includes Santa arriving by horse-drawn carriage at 6 p.m. to kick off the event, along with musical entertainment, crafts, foods, and the lighting of the holiday tree at the gazebo. Janet Jackson-Gould, chair- woman of the center, said they have already begun decorating for the event. “We think it’s important to the main street and downtown here,” she said. One unique thing the center is doing is having artists create 2.5” x3-inch trading cards that hang on the center’s holiday tree. Visitors are encouraged to take one from the tree and leave one of their own. Storyteller Betsy Gravatt will be in the art center telling sto- ries during the festival. There will be an opening re- ception the night before the festi- val on Friday, Dec. 2. The show will be judged and awards will be given. The center has about 250 members, 150 of them being artists or photographers. They are encouraged to hang work so people might buy them for holi- day presents. “It’s a joyful season for every-

one,” Jackson-Gould said. “It’s just great to have people stop in and celebrate with the arts, cre- ate things.” On Dec. 11, professional singer Valerie Vaughn will play guitar and lead a sing-a-long with toddlers to first graders. While she plays, the children will play instruments and sing songs from holidays around the world. Walter Urban, chairman of the Medford Cultural Arts Com- mission said the entity was ap- pointed by council “many, many

years ago” to create an environ- ment for the arts to thrive in the township. He said the center’s building allows for all kinds of art, in- cluding performing, to flourish. The vision started when he was first elected to the council in

2000.

“I think now that there is a place where artists can come and gather, we have a Mecca, a destination place,” Urban said, noting it is an “anchor” for artists who want to share ideas and display talents. While the center hosts small events to raise funds, its biggest fund raiser is comedy night. In the spring it hosts an art and an- tiques appraisal luncheon. The center also got a $5,000 grant from the county this year. Jackson-Gould said the center

started the year with $18,000 in the bank. It now has $19,000. She said the center will finish the year in the black and always has. There are also significant cor- porate sponsors for events. The center also welcomes in- kind donations, such computers, printers and vacuum cleaners. “We’re very fortunate to have that level of community sup- port,” Jackson-Gould said. “We could be very easily a jumping off point for economic development going forward as

the town expands its business model,” Urban said. “We are strategically and tactically locat- ed right here in the center of town.” Jackson-Gould said she sees the center as more of a commu- nity center for the arts. The center has partnered with many organizations, including South Jersey Acoustical Roots music group which meets there monthly as does South Jersey mixed media artist group. Medford Celebrates founda- tion meets there as well. “We like to share the facilities with other organizations,” Jack- son-Gould said. “I think that helps everybody in town.” “It’s penny wise and dollar

foolish to think of us as a drain on the economy of the town,” Urban said, noting it brings peo- ple to Medford. The center has only been in its present building at 18 N. Main St., for two-and-a-half years. Prior to that it had no central location to have classes or host music concerts. “It’s really given us a base to expand the arts in Medford” and increased participation in the arts, Jackson-Gould said. “We try and bring feet to the street.” She said one item on her wish list is to have the center buy the building that it currently leases. “We love this building we’d love to have it as a permanent home,” Jackson-Gould said.

Help during holidays

T hanksgiving kicks off the tra-

ditional holiday season. And

with the holiday season come

all kinds of efforts to help those in need. We want to help spread the word if you or an organization you are work- ing with are trying to brighten the hol- idays for someone. Every year, schools, civic groups and more hold all kinds of drives. Food is collected. Clothing is gathered. Toys are purchased and donated so that children have a happy holiday season. We want to help these efforts by get- ting the word out. To do that, we need you to tell us about any collection ef-

forts you have. It’s easy to do. Just shoot us an email. Tell us who you are, what you are doing and, most importantly, how our readers can help you to achieve your goal. It’s vital to tell us where and when people can make donations and the types of donations that you are accept- ing. Letting people know where their donations end up doesn’t hurt either. Once we get the information, we

will share it with our readers. Then, hopefully, they will respond and fill your collection baskets until they are overflowing. There’s no need to explain the eco- nomic problems so many of our friends and neighbors are experienc- ing. You know many people are hurt- ing, and have been hurting for some time now. You know that, without your help, they will have a difficult holiday season. So let’s do all we can to help those in need. All of you Holiday Heroes, let us know what you are doing and how peo- ple can make a difference. We’ll take it from there.

Medford First topples the old guard

The recent election climaxed a drive to put a new majority on the Medford Council and change the climate of business as usual that has prevailed for many years. It was the first time in many years that the opportunity presented itself to actually in- stall a new majority. Through hard work and knocking on many doors, the Medford First team was able to unseat the old guard. Now a new be- ginning is in the offing. But, it won’t be easy. The residents gave the new team a decisive victory. Now they have to be willing to give their support has needed changes are made. There are many basic services that we as a community need: police surveillance, fire assistance, trash collection, snow re- moval and, at this time of year, leaf re- moval. Unfortunately past councils have been too quick to approve and spend our tax dollars on recreation and arts pro- grams, which were a duplication of pro- grams we were already paying for through our schools. They found it hard to turn down special interest groups that wanted artificial turf, a skate board park, a new arts building, a new ball field for first time players, and on an on. All well-meaning projects that benefit special groups but were not necessarily a wise investment for the taxpayers as a whole. In the future, the community has to put

its basic services first. When it comes to these nice to have projects, they can seek government backing; but, when it comes to financial support they should find ways to privately fund their project. If this philosophy was applied to govern- ments at all levels – county, state and feder- al – we could hold the line on taxes and avoid the threat of bankruptcy, which many are facing.

Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club annual holiday food drive

The Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club will host its third annual holiday food drive on Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 at Za- llies Medford ShopRite on Route 70 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In its first year of conducting a food drive the club held a one-day event. It was so successful that enough food was collect- ed to fill two vans. That collection was de- livered to the Christian Caring Center in Browns Mills. Last year the club decided to hold a two- day event, because the need for food assis- tance was greater. Then, as now, many food banks were short of turkeys and other ne- cessities. As a result of last year’s two-day food drive, more than 80 boxes of non-per- ishable foods and over $280 in cash was do- nated. The monetary donations were turned into ShopRite gift cards, so the food banks would be able to purchase additional

items. The cards along with the food were then donated to the Pemberton and East- hampton food pantries. This year’s need is so much greater and the Rotary Club asks everyone to help. As Zallies ShopRite customers arrive on Sat- urday and Sunday they will be provided a list of needed items and given a brief ex- planation for the project. When they leave the store members of the Rotary Club and students from Seneca and Shawnee high schools Interact Club will be on hand to ac- cept their donations. Come and connect, share and give.

Thank you to all of the people who sup- ported me throughout the campaign. It’s been an amazing journey. Although the re- sults didn’t go the way we hoped, the best part has been being the recipient of so much kindness, generosity, and support. I’ve met a lot of great people, seen the good in people, and solidified some new friend- ships. It’s difficult to express just how much that means to me. Thanks to all of you for everything you’ve done. Where will I go from here? I will contin- ue my work on the zoning board, a job I’ve always felt was important to the better-

I’d like to think that wouldn’t be a factor in such an important election, but history confirms, placement can play a role in results. The issue that concerns me the most, was the impact rumors and lies may have had on the out- come. The questions and implica- tions about who contributed to my campaign could have been set- tled by looking at the NJ ELEC (Election Law Enforcement Com- mission’s) website.

ment of the township, and have consistently done with the people of Medford at heart. I’ll continue as a Scoutmaster, helping boys along the trail to Eagle Scout, a rank I feel is so important. And I will continue to attend council meetings, keeping my finger on the pulse of the township. I hope new council members are able to help. I wish them the best. It is not going to be easy. People have asked for my take on the results. First, there was a distinct disadvantage to begin- ning a race after the primary. The time I was able to spend face-to- face with people was lim- ited, and it’s an important factor in letting people know who you

ELEC website. The reason I am sharing this is because I’m con- cerned about the potential fall-out the rumors could cause. It would be based on information that was absolutely not true, and that would not be fair. The other part that I find troubling is that this sort of practice seems to be be- coming acceptable. I think we have to ask ourselves, when can- didates are willing to lie to dis- credit an opponent, what sort of leader will he be? I ran a clean campaign, and wouldn’t change a thing. The support that was shown to me by folks I hadn’t known before was terrific and I will not forget it. I wish I could have met more people. I enjoyed listening to your thoughts, ideas and concerns, and will keep them with me as I continue to stay in- volved.

Help out animal shelters during the holiday season

It’s time for the Sun newspapers’ eighth-annual ‘Deck the Paws and Help a Collie’ aid drive

It’s that time of the year. It’s time for the eighth annual Sun newspapers’ “Deck the Paws and Help a Collie” holiday drive to aid area animal shelters and rescue groups. And, again this year, we need your help. More specifically, the animals in the shelters need your help. This year, the drive will run from the week of Nov. 28 through Dec. 16. As mentioned, we started this effort way back in 2004. That year, we had only a few drop spots, and we collected a couple of carloads of supplies.All of that has changed. In recent years, we have had 20-30 drop spots and have been able to deliver about 25-30

carloads of supplies to the shel- ters every holiday season. The animals in these shelters are in a tough spot. Our goal al- ways has been to lighten the bur- den shelters and rescue groups have to keep the animals fed and comfortable. When the shelters receive basics, such as food, blan- kets and litter, they save money. That’s money that can go toward helping to find animals a perma- nent home. Want to help? Here’s how it all works:

Right now, we need to build a list of drop spots. We need places where people can go to drop off food, cat litter, cleaning supplies and everything else our local ani- mal shelters need. If you don’t

mind people showing up at your door and dropping 40-pound bags of dog food on your floor, we need to hear from you. In a couple of weeks, we will publish a list of drop spots in our newspapers and online. People then will read the list, gather sup- plies and take them to a drop spot. After that, the supplies are picked up and taken to a shelter. It all starts with the drop spots. The more spots we have, the more supplies we collect. More drop spots mean a brighter holiday season for shelter animals. If you want to be a drop spot, or if you have questions, please send an email to alan@elauwit.com. Please put “Animal Shelter Drive” in the subject line.

Medford Lakes third-graders send their ‘Monarchs’ to Mexico

Medford Lakes School Dis- trict’s third-graders sent their Monarch Butterflies on their way to Mexico on Wednesday, Oct.5. The third-grade students learned the life-cycle of the Monarch Butterfly first hand in their classroom as they watched it grow from eggs to a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly. The but- terfly project was intertwined with their studies in science. The students and teachers brought their butterflies to the field around 10:30 a.m., on Oct. 5. All three third-grade classes stood in a vey large circle and chanted “Gotto go – Gotto Go – Gotto to Go to Mexico!” Each student made a T-shirt and hat and sang a song for all the parents and teachers who attend- ed the release. Then, the Monarch butterfly warmed its wings up and took off, flying 5-10 MPH on wind currents traveling up to 80 miles a day to get to Mexico. This project began in 2001 and is still continuing today. This is a

cilmen Chris Buoni and Frank Czekay said in a joint statement. “It has certainly been a tumul- tuous year for Medford Town- ship.” They also say Brown’s timing of his resignation is “curious.” “One can only wonder why Mr. Brown would choose to resign now,” Buoni and Czekay said. “If Mr. Brown had waited another week, it would have been possible for the newly elected council members to name his replace- ment. “Medford is ready for a brand new start,” they added. “Hopeful- ly, the Republican establishment will put forward three new quali- fied choices, not recycled names from the past or choices that the

An employee at town hall would not release Brown’s resignation letter and suggested it be requested under the Open Public Records Act. Former Councilwoman Victo- ria Fay, who was removed from council earlier this year, had vit- riol for Brown. “He has been a horrible public

official and I am glad to see him gone,” Fay said. “The mayor should take Councilman Brown’s lead and follow closely behind.” Fay, who was removed from the council for apparently violating the township’s residency require- ments, has maintained she was temporarily housed outside the township because of a pending di- vorce. “Good riddance,” she said.

Tough economy means a busy South Jersey food pantry

By SEAN PATRICK MURPHY

The Medford Sun

Given the economy, it’s no sur- prise there’s an increase in people using food pantries to stretch an already strained dollar. The Food Bank of South Jer- sey’s CEO Val Traore said de- mand has continued to grow. “Four years ago, we distributed about 4 million pounds of food. Then in 2010, it was 8 million; 9 million in 2011; and our projec- tions for 2012 are 12 million pounds,” Traore said. She pointed to a 2009 study that showed that the four-county serv- ice area (Camden, Burlington, Gloucester and Salem) had 100,000 food-insecure people, peo- ple who are never sure where their next meal is coming from. “This year, Feeding America, our parent organization, revealed their ‘Map the Meal’ study, show-

ing over 170,000 food-insecure people in our four counties,” Tra- ore said. “And over 57,000 of those are children.” St. Mary of the Lakes’ St. Vin- cent de Paul thrift store in Med- ford has seen an increase in need, as well. Judie Wasson, store coordina- tor, said donations are up right now. She said clients are given a clothing voucher that allows them to pick two outfits per fami- ly member. “We just thank anyone who comes in to shop at our store to help us achieve what we’re trying to do here,” Wasson said. Mary Ann Coceano, who has volunteered with St. Vincent de Paul for 17 years, said need has in- creased dramatically. She said there are more mid- dle-class people coming in, people who’ve lost their jobs and who are

falling behind on mortgages or utility bills. Coceano said St. Vincent de Paul provides help with rent and utility bills after a thorough in- vestigation. Charity representatives meet people in their homes as well as in the office. Potential clients then sign a consent form allowing St. Vincent de Paul to investigate with landlords and utility compa- nies to verify information. The information is then sub- mitted to a committee, and an ac- tion plan is adopted for each client. Coceano said St. Vincent de Paul’s source of income is from the thrift shop only. Traore also said she has seen something similar. “As unemployment takes its toll in New Jersey, and both un-

employment benefits and health insurance are lost, the middle class is increasingly coming to us to help them make ends meet,” she said. “The irony is that their safety nets are disappearing at the very time they need them the most. In fact, more than half of New Jersey residents make too much to qualify for federal-nutri- tion assistance (such as food stamps) but still do not make enough to stave off food insecuri- ty.

“Behind our manicured lawns and white-picket fences, real need and real hunger exist,” Traore added. Traci Davis, Hope United Methodist Church preschool teacher, volunteers running the food pantry. “The need has grown consider- ably,” she said, with the loss of jobs and insurance. “Families are struggling so much more, even in a nice ZIP code like ours.” The church is located in Voorhees. Davis said right now, all the families using the pantry are mid- dle class. Only one gets help from Camden County. Most have incomes just a bit too high to qualify for assistance, making them working poor. Four families come to the pantry every week, three come twice a month and another four come once a month. Items in demand include juice, cereals, meats, soups, paper prod- ucts and chemicals. Davis said the church has so- licited help from the Food Bank of

South Jersey because parish- ioners could not supply enough. One preschool parent has do- nated all of the turkeys for the families at Thanksgiving, a youth group will help put baskets to- gether and teen boys will make two pies per family – apple and pumpkin. Raising funds and collecting food is the greatest challenge faced by the Food Bank of South Jersey. “With government cutbacks in the funding, we typically get for TEFAP food (The Emergency Food Assistance Program), we are more desperate than ever for funds to buy food and get it out there to the people who need it,” Traore said. With Thanksgiving this week, the food bank is busy, working through more than 200 agencies – pantries, soup kitchens, missions and others – to help distribute food to the needy. “During Thanksgiving, we’ll distribute more than 16,000 turkeys with boxes of Thanksgiv-

ing sides,” Traore said. “We will also distribute food through our direct-service programs which serve the most fragile populations – children and the elderly – to make sure their holidays are hunger free.”
