Mullica Hill Triathlon Club Offers Women More Than Just A Sport

    Quite unexpectedly, though not secretly, a trend, possibly a movement, certainly a contagion, appears to be upwelling in the groomed and growing developments among the little hills and woody waysides of the expanding Mullica Hill commercial district. And women, it’s all on you, about you, for you. Somehow, […]

Support Group Helps With The Grieving From The Loss Of A 4-Legged Loved One

By Jean Redstone Our society has instituted effective traditions to help and support mourners dealing with the loss of a family member or close friend. There’s a gathering around, an understanding, a sharing of the pain, an offering of sympathy and caring, the partaking of rituals. But what if that […]

For Local Santa, It’s Not the Gifts, It’s the Spirit

By Jean Redstone He’s the hit of every Christmas parade and the star of every holiday party. When he arrives, with sleigh or with elfin helpers, people flock in delight to greet the white-bearded fellow in the deep-red, plush suit, belted and booted in lustrous black. ‘Tis the season and […]

Retiring Mail Carriers Have Been Door to Door Witnesses To The Changes In The Area

By Jean Redstone Before there was the Internet where you could buy your newest ‘ugly Christmas sweater’ and have it sent; before there were local, official postal trucks delivering your sweater; before, even, there were zip codes, there was Elizabeth Lowery. And if you lived in certain areas of Swedesboro, […]

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. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spectacularly busted a video glass ceiling at the Democratic Convention two months ago, for example. But in […]

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 […]

Woolwich nurse takes on another adventure and serves at leper colony

By Jean Redstone The world’s tallest sea cliffs, nearly 2,000 feet high of sheer, vertical, volcanic rock, protect the landward side of the tiny, yet infamous village of Kalaupapa on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, home to a modern day leper colony. The rough, forbidding sea that crashes the peninsula […]
