New neighbor wants your help in saving land, waters

It’s probably fair to say that not a lot of people know what the South Jersey Land and Water Trust is or, more to the point, what it does. Which is odd because the SJLWT likely, and significantly, has impacted every resident in South Jersey.   Distilled to its essence, […]

Mullica Hill Trainer Breaks Glass Ceiling and Becomes First Woman in Parx Racing Hall of Fame

By Jean Redstone One talking trend lately, possibly because it’s an election year, is of glass ceilings coming down, breaking, as women move past long-defended barriers into top positions.

10 year sail around the world is a lifetime in the making for this Woolwich couple

Can we agree on the premise that sailing into the ocean blue when a hurricane’s coming after you is probably a bad decision? For you and me, maybe. For the Gieschens it isn’t. Wasn’t. It wasn’t a bad decision and they’ve been there, done that, and survived unscathed. Alison and […]

Boy “Mayor” raises $300,000 for Alex’s Lemonade, Stand opens again June 11 at Woolwich Fire House

By Jean Redstone Young Mario Carpino did not start out as the mayor — or, for that matter, as a community organizer and mega-fundraiser.  He was just a four-year-old kid. He was a four-year-old kid whose mom, Anna, noticed her son couldn’t move his arm one day and took him […]

Partners Against Crime: The K9 Corps

By Jean Redstone In the 50s and 60s, before television fully transitioned to color, families arranged their schedules to watch Rin Tin Tin and Lassie shows, and hero dogs were all the entertainment rage. You can still see episodes of these classics, sometimes on retro TV channels and also on […]

Kids are the stars in this local theater group

By Jean Redstone Oh my goodness it’s déjà vu. At least it’s deja movie view. It’s youngsters banding together, singing, dancing, dressing up and doing it on stage. Yes folks, there might be trouble, right here in Swedesboro City and only a band and chorus can save us. “Music Man” […]

400 years of U.S. history reflected in one Tuskegee airman

by Jean Redstone You could not know upon meeting Dr. Cornelius Elbert Gaither, formerly of Swedesboro, that his gentle demeanor belies a heritage of war upon war survived by his ancestors. There is a kindness in his face and a quiet in his voice that does not hint at the […]
