The Lawrence Hopewell Trail was the recipient of
two grants totaling $24,000 from the New Jer-
sey Department of Environmental Protection’s
Green Acres Program. The 22-mile loop connect-
ing the two towns is now nearly 80 percent com-
pleted.
Grant awarded will complete
Hopewell, Lawrence sections of trail
By NORA CARNEVALE
The Sun
The state Department of Environmental Pro-
tection’s Green Acres program has issued
grants to fund two portions of the Lawrence
Hopewell Trail. A $24,000 grant will be awarded
to complete projects in both the Hopewell and
Lawrence sections of the trail.
Eleanor Horne, co-founder of the LHT, re-
ports that the 22-mile loop is now approximate-
ly 80 percent complete.
“We are delighted to receive the two grants
from the DEP, in part because we need the
money to complete the construction of the
trails, but also because every time we receive a
grant it is like a vote of confidence in the com-
pletion of the trails,” Horne said.
The Hopewell portion of the grant is for a
section called the Pennington connector. Horne
explained that since the grant application was
filed “a while ago,” in the meantime Bristol

report

The following reports are on file with the Hopewell Police De- partment:

On April 23 at 3:42 p.m. Officer Brian Dendis was detailed to the area of Route 518 near Stony Brook Road on the report of an erratic driver. The 911 callers re- ported that a black Volkswagen was travelling on Route 518 in an erratic manner. The 911 callers also provided the license plate of the vehicle. Dendis arrived in the area and located the vehicle stopped on the side of the road. He approached the driver who was later identified as a 31-year- old female from York Street in Lambertville. While speaking with her, he detected the odor of alcohol on her breath and person and observed a can of com- pressed chemicals commonly

used to clean computer equip- ment in her hand. The contents of the can are often inhaled for in- toxication. Based on his investi- gation, the driver was placed under arrest for DWI and for pos- sessing toxic chemicals used for causing intoxication. She was transported to police headquar- ters where she was processed and released to a family member. Her case will be heard in municipal court.

On April 28, Officer Louis Vas- tola was on patrol on Route 31 near Mine Road. He stopped a red Ford pickup for a motor vehicle violation. The driver, who was identified as a 40-year-old female of Marshalls Corner Woodsville Road, Hopewell, was found to have an outstanding warrant for

in our opinion

New year, same message:

Stay local this summer

L ast year at this time, we preached how important it was to stay local for the summer-

time. We said that the 102 days be- tween Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends are “crucial” for the Jersey Shore, which, no matter where you live in our fine state, has a vital impact on our economy. We are now a year-and-a-half re- moved from the devastation that was caused by Hurricane Sandy, but some Shore towns are still fighting to fully recover. Beach remediation is all but complete, and the boardwalks and shops are up and running, for the most part – at least those that decided to re- build. But these Shore towns still need our

Your thoughts

support. Beach Season 2013 was not a good one. As if rebuilding from Sandy was- n’t bad enough, an incredibly wet June kept visitors away from the Shore dur- ing prime weekends. Sales for stores in the hardest-hit areas of the storm were off anywhere from 20-40 percent last year, according to state economic reports. And Gov. Christie’s office esti- mated that companies lost more than $63 million in business due to the storm.

So what’s the message here? It’s sim- ple: Visit the Shore this summer, and visit often. New Jersey residents often take our coastline for granted, but we should realize how lucky we are to have such a gem this close to home. So let’s pay it back this summer. There are fewer than three weeks until the official start of the summer beach season, but with schools letting out a little later this year thanks to the snowy winter, there is still plenty of time to plan your summer vacation at the Jersey Shore. The beach towns need your support, now more than ever. Let’s all dedicate at least part of our summer to giving back.

BOE awards six as Teachers of the Year

By NORA CARNEVALE

The Sun

On April 28, the Hopewell Valley Region- al Board of Education honored one educa- tor from each of the district’s six schools during the 2014 Governor’s Recognition Program. The Governor’s Teacher/Educational Services Professional Recognition Awards were given to Hopewell Valley Central High School English teacher Tery Solomon, Timberlane Middle School media specialist Barbara McCarty, Stony Brook Elementary School first-grade teacher Kristy Hazlett, Bear Tavern Elementary School art teacher Joslyn Johnson, Hopewell Elementary School fourth-grade teacher Thomas Ledwith and Toll Gate Grammar School learning disabilities teacher consultant Michelle Maglione. The awards, also referred to as Teacher of the Year Awards, are part of a statewide initiative that serves to acknowledge teach-

ers and educational staff for consistently demonstrating outstanding performance. Nominees can be named by any district or community member, students, parents or fellow educators. Once nominated, the win- ners are chosen by a committee of admin- istrators, teachers and former winners. McCarty graduated with an English ed- ucation degree from Temple University and began teaching at Timberlane in 1997. There, she taught seventh-grade language arts for 14 years. After earning a library science degree in 2011, she has shifted to a media specialist position and works with students at all three grade levels within the school. She lives in Doylestown, Pa., with her husband and two sons. “I am really honored to be chosen. I have always thought very highly of the people who have gotten this before me, and I ap- preciate the recognition,” she said in a dis- trict press release. Solomon graduated with a bachelor’s of arts from Ithaca College and completed

graduate work at Rider University. She teaches Advanced Placement Composition and sophomore honors English. She was formerly a business journalist, and has written for Time magazine and Dow Jones. She received her teacher certification in 1994 and since then has remained in the Hopewell Valley School District. Hazlett has taught first grade at Stony Brook Elementary School since 2003, after earning her undergraduate teaching de- gree from Shippensburg University and a reading specialist master’s degree from Holy Family University. Hazlett grew up in Philadelphia, and now lives in Ewing. “I always wanted to be a teacher, and I really feel this is a job I was meant to do,” she said. Johnson began teaching art at Timber- lane Elementary School in 2008, then at Bear Tavern Elementary School in 2010. She teaches all grades, and has been a staff

member at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton since 2001. There, she teaches family and children’s art workshops and participates in the Tots on Tour program, intro- ducing art to preschoolers. Prior to joining the HVRSD, Johnson ran art programs at Merrill Lynch summer and aftercare pro- grams. She earned her art educa- tion degree from The College of New Jersey and lives in Mount Laurel with her husband and two children. Ledwith spent 14 years in tele- vision and video production upon receiving his media and video production degree at Temple Uni- versity. He received his teaching certificate from Rider University in 2005, and that year he joined the district. Now, he teaches fourth grade and notes that he has always gravitated toward edu- cation. He previously produced the NJN children’s variety show

“Uncle Floyd” and served as the educational liaison for a produc- tion studio in Hightstown. Maglione began her career with the HVRSD in 1997 as a spe- cial education teacher at Timber- lane upon graduation from Rowan University. In her current position, she evaluates students’ special needs and assists them and their teachers in meeting them. Maglione began her college studies in nursing, but discovered her passion while working part- time at a preschool. She switched majors and earned an education degree, then a master’s degree in education and advanced study of learning disabilities from TCNJ. She lives in Allentown with her husband and three children. Assistant Superintendent Richard Lang heads the commit- tee in charge of choosing winners each year. This year, he said near- ly 70 staff members had been ac- knowledged in about 140 letters of nomination. He said to the win- ners at the event, “you are a group that excels in the eyes of the community.”

DEP about options to use the funds for another part of the trail. “We are the only citizen-led trail development project in the country. Most projects like this are led by government, not a merry band of community mem- bers,” Horne said. The vote of confidence from the DEP in the latest round of grants is exactly what the organi- zation needs to move toward com- pletion of the trail. “The fact that they are recog- nizing a segment in Lawrence and a segment in Hopewell is just incredible,” she said. Horne said it has been amazing to watch the trail become what the founders, she and Becky Tay- lor, have envisioned for more than 10 years. “We wanted it to be primarily

off-road and family friendly and handicap accessible. We wanted it to be safe, with no steep eleva- tions so that is accessible to a young child, or a stroller or wheelchair,” she said. Horne added that The Lawrence Hopewell Trail has started to become an integral part of the Lawrence and Hopewell communities. “One of the joys of this process is going to a segment and seeing families on the trail. The trail has so much use now and people now know about it. They are using it, and they are using it in the ways we intended it. Families and everyday riders are using it,” Horne said. She explained that there are several more grants that have been approved, but those projects have not yet begun.

Smithsonian traveling exhibit makes a stop at Howell farm

By NORA CARNEVALE

The Sun

On May 7, the Howell Living History Farm, part of the Mercer County Park Commission, re- ceived 21 boxes it has been care- fully preparing to unpack. Inside were the pieces of the Smithson- ian Institution Traveling Exhibi- tion Service, Museum on Main Street, entitled “Hometown Teams.” Howell Living History Farm is one of only six New Jersey loca- tions chosen to host the exhibit, which focuses on the love of sports that begins in hometowns and becomes an integral part of culture and community. Pete Watson, director of How- ell Living History Farm, de- scribed the journey through his- tory that led the farm to apply for

a grant to host the exhibit. As a

living history farm, it serves to educate visitors and demonstrate the history and aspects of social life in a rural community during the turn of the 20th century. “We know that the farmer’s children went to a school at the end of Hunter Road, and played baseball during recess. We’ve heard stories from people who are

now in their 80s and 90s about people playing on a baseball team called the Pleasant Valley Quails. Our historian looked into this and learned all of the history of this team. We have pictures now, and we know that teenagers and young adults played on this team. They knew they weren’t going to become professionals, it was just

a fun community activity,” Wat- son said. He explained that the farm

staff heard about the traveling ex- hibit’s theme, so he thought “why not?” It may seem odd that an exhibit about sports would be hosted in- side a barn at a living history farm, but the barn itself is a prod- uct of community and teamwork. “The more we looked at the grant application, we saw we had more stories about teamwork. Raising barns and bringing in a crop of hay, these were the types of social gatherings that become glue of the community,” Watson said. In fact, the very barn in which the exhibit will be housed was the product of about 500 community members coming together for a barn raising five years ago in

what Watson described as an “old-fashioned community gath-

ering.” Additionally, Watson explained that the connection runs deeper, since the farm is a living exhibit itself. “Although, our exhibits are typically growing in a field some- where or have four legs,” he said. While visitors to the farm do not typically see photos of horses harrowing oats, they are able to become a part of the exhibit and experience it firsthand. Visitors will also be able to be- come a part of the Hometown Teams exhibit as well, through use of an “audio pod” element. Every visitor can tell their own sports stories or stories about teamwork from their lives. The recordings will be archived and added to the Museum on Main Street’s oral histories project. “People can talk about their

moment of glory in Little League, or if a professional athlete lived down the street from you growing up. Those memories can become part of something, a national archive,” Watson said. Watson said that part of the Mercer County Park Commis- sion’s mission is to create oppor- tunities for community members to enjoy all types of recreational programs. “It seems very fitting that the exhibit would be part of the park commission’s offerings this sum- mer,” he said. The exhibit will run for six weeks through June 22 and is open during the same hours as the farm, Tuesday through Satur- day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. The farm offers free parking and gen- eral admission, as well as admis- sion to the park, is free.
