Brittany Sparks & Rachel Bakos arrested on child endangerment charges. PV Police story disappears

Story and photo from NJ.com

Two women were arrested after being found in a car with marijuana, allegedly snorting prescription pills with two young children, authorities said on December 8, 2016.

However, the story which was blasted all over Facebook by Pennsville Police Department’s “Official” Page no longer has any trace of the incident.

Rachel M. Bakos, 31, of Somerdale and Brittany Sparks, 31, of Elmer were charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Pennsville Chief of Police Allen J Cummings.

Officers were called to the parking lot of the Pennsville Market Street on South Broadway just before 10 p.m. on Dec. 8 to investigate the report of suspicious activity by Brittany Sparks and Rachel Bakos in a vehicle.

Police couldn’t find the vehicle at the shopping center, but located Brittany Sparks and Rachel Bakos in the car at a convenience store nearby.

When officers questioned Rachel Bakos and Brittany Sparks, Cummings said, they allegedly told police they had been ingesting a prescription drug.

Police found suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the car.

Bakos had two of her children in the vehicle, ages 9 and 12, the chief said.

Both Bakos and Sparks were released by police after being charged.

Rachel Bakos’ children were turned over to family members and the state Division of Children and Families was advised of the incident, according to Cummings.

Tower with glass panels featuring Jennifer Luncente’s artwork which was commissioned by MTA for the opening of the Arthur Kill Station

The artwork of Salem Community College Assistant Professor of Visual and Performing Arts Jenna Lucente is permanently featured at the newly opened Arthur Kill Station on the Staten Island Railway.

Lucente was commissioned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to design artwork for 28 large-scale, laminated glass panels featuring a mix of wildlife and landscape scenes that are unique to the area’s geography and community, according to an MTA news release. The panels were installed in windscreens at the top of station’s two towers and in the overpass connecting the northbound and southbound platforms.

Lucente, who grew up in the Castleton Corners section of Staten Island, devoted three years to creating the designs, then worked with a glass fabricator in Germany to make the glass. Last summer, she proudly watched the glass art’s installation.

According to the MTA release, the towers’ glass panels are laminated blue with foreground images of indigenous wildlife and framed with an intricate design that pays homage to neighborhood architecture. The background of each panel features a landscape, either natural or urban, of the neighborhood.

An SCC faculty member since 2015, Lucente earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from Syracuse University and a master of fine arts degree from Queens College, City University of New York.

“Staten Island will always be home to me, and the artwork at the new Arthur Kill Station has great personal significance,” Lucente said. “My understanding, interpretation and connection with Staten Island will always be here through this artwork. It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to share this vision with the public, and my fellow Staten Islanders.”

Lucente’s artwork is described as a “thoughtful interpretation of the area’s natural beauty and a study of its historic significance” by Sandra Bloodworth, Director of MTA Arts and Design, in the news release.

Harriet Hubbard named Teacher of the Year by New Jersey Association for Gifted Children

Penns Grove-Carneys Point’s Harriet Hubbard named Teacher of the Year by NJ Association for Gifted Children

Harriet Hubbard has been selected Teacher of the Year by the New Jersey Association for Gifted Children (NJAGC).

 

Harriet Hubbard named NJAGC Teacher of the YearThe NJAGC Awards Dinner will be on Thursday March 16 at Salt Creek Inn located in Princeton, New Jersey. This event is in recognition of Harriet Hubbard and her superb work at Penns Grove-Carneys Point School District.

Harriet, a resident of Cinnaminson, NJ, teaches gifted and talented students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade in the Penns Grove Carney’s Point School District in Salem County.

“Her accomplishments are many and diverse. She opens doors for her students in a myriad of ways, from schoolyard gardening, to building solar cars and participating in a solar car competition, to learning Latin, to holding an annual Harry Potter Day. Her students thrive on the exposure to new ideas and new knowledge,” stated Elaine Mendelow, Past President of NJAGC.

Director of Curriculum and Instruction in Penns Grove commented that “Ms. Hubbard has the communication skills to provide support and provoke growth and enrichment in her students. She approaches her job with a high degree of patience, appreciation, and deep regard for the aims of education.”

In 2001, Harriet received the Parent of the Year Award for her involvement in NJAGC, the Cinnaminson School District, and her daughter, Lindsey’s participation in the Project Challenge gifted program. Harriet joined the state organization and quickly took on responsibilities as a Trustee, Secretary, and for the past several years as Treasurer.

She willingly gives of her time and has been a presenter at the annual state conference as well as the annual REACH Event in Pennsauken, NJ.

Nevertheless, as Harriet became more involved in her daughter’s education, she began to focus on gifted education. Hubbard volunteered for many more events. Regardless, the events ranged from covering school-board meetings to researching the importance of specific gifted programming & school-wide enrichment, plus much more. Furthermore, Hubbarb covered the NJAGC Conference as press. However, it was during this event when she realized a major career change was inevitable. She left her job as a reporter to pursue the alternate route and become a teacher of the gifted!

“I wouldn’t be a book editor in New York now without the love of words and the intense curiosity about the world, instilled in me by my mother,” remarked Lindsey.

Event Dates and Details:

NJAGC Awards Dinner:
  •  March 16th at Salt Creek Inn located in Princeton, New Jersey
