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.

Congressman Frank Lobiondo with Mr. Harold B. Smick of Quinton at his office in Washington DC during the Presidential inauguration

NJ Congressman Frank Lobiondo: Be Brave. No Lies. Investigate These Russian Ties

Above: NJ Congressman Frank Lobiondo with Mr. Harold B. Smick of Quinton at his office in Washington DC during the recent 2016 Presidential Inauguration (photo via Frank Lobiondo’s Facebook Page)

Every day Congress does nothing about possible Russian interference, we become more convinced that Republicans are trying to protect the Trump Administration at all costs.

  • Elizabeth Volz of Pitman, New Jersey

Congressman LoBiondo is the perfect person to courageously come forward and support a bipartisan select committee and an independent commission investigation into any connections between the Trump campaign, the Trump Administration and the Russian government. Respected on both sides of the isle, he has the reputation of being a moderate conservative with a cool head and a keen ear. Obviously, Lobiondo could express to his colleagues the benefit of clearing the air on these issues.

Telling voters that an investigation is already underway when every aspect of it is controlled by the Republican party is insufficient and feels disingenuous. In standing committees, the Republicans control subpoenas, what information is preserved, and who testifies. Also, Congressman LoBiondo asserts that a 3rd party investigation is challenged by the “classified nature” of the inquiry. Yet the GOP had no problems letting a 3rd party see classified information about President Bill Clinton.

The inaction of the current Congress around the issue of Russian interference is harming Republicans. The hundreds of hours and millions of dollars Congress was willing to spend to investigate Hillary Clinton’s emails has not escaped the average voter. Every day Congress does nothing about possible Russian interference, we become more convinced that Republicans are trying to protect the Trump Administration at all costs.

Now is the time for Congressman LoBiondo to join Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain in calling for a bipartisan independent investigation of Russian influence into United States 2016 elections and the Trump Administration.

Salem County offers free “Hands-Only CPR Classes” via grant for Medical Reserve Corps. program

Free, 30-minute hands-only CPR classes offered to Salem County Residents during March of 2017 through grant with Public Preparedness Division for its Medical Reserve Corps. program

Salem, NJ — The Salem County Department of Health & Human Services is offering free classes in March 2017 for Salem County Residents to learn “hands-only” CPR. Such is a method of providing CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths during a cardiac emergency.

The 30-minute classes will be led by an employee of the County Health & Human Services Department who is Red Cross certified. The free classes are being presented through a grant to the Department’s Public Preparedness Division for its Medical Reserve Corps. program. Anyone 14 years or older can register.

“Statistics show that 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests happen in private and residential settings, which means if you know how to perform Hands-Only CPR, you may be able to save the life of a friend or family member,” said Freeholder Director Bob Vanderslice, who also chairs the Health and Human Services Committee.

Cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States. The survival rate drops as much as 10 percent with every minute that goes by without intervention. Nearly 90 percent of people suffering a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene.

“Hands-only CPR is an easy skill to learn and use – and it is effective in saving lives,” said Freeholder Director Vanderslice.

Class size is limited, so residents must RSVP for one of the following classes:

  • March 9: 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm or 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm
  • March 16: 6:30 pm – 7:00 pm or 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm
A snow date is set for March 22, 2017. Times will be posted on the Department’s website at: health.salemcountynj.gov

Budget Request information for 2017:
The FY 2017 Budget includes $6,000,000 in budget authority for the civilian volunteer Medical Reserve Corps, which is consistent with the FY 2016 enacted level. This funding will primarily support the following efforts:
• Provide regional coordination and technical assistance to MRC unit leaders to guide the development of the units.
• Identify the key missions/functional areas most often supported by MRC units (i.e. shelter support, mass vaccination, medical countermeasure dispensing, etc.) and developing a system to track, monitor and assess units’ ability to support the mission and the extent to which they can assist.
• Provide funding to MRC units to demonstrate their capabilities through a “Challenge Award” program where selected units will need to complete and evaluate a project in their Public Health and Social Sciences Emergency Fund community/region/state that demonstrates success in building resilience, reducing vulnerability, and/or enhancing emergency preparedness, response and recovery capability, and;
• Identify a standardized set of “Mission Ready Packages” that could be used by local and state officials to characterize and type the MRC resources available.

 

These efforts will promote a new level of consistency throughout the MRC network. ASPR will leverage its existing programs and infrastructure.
• More than 150 MRC units reported preparedness, response and recovery activities related to Hurricane Sandy. Many units performed sheltering functions such as staffing and/or assisting in the setup of general community, functional or special needs shelters and working at shelters in support of the American Red Cross (ARC). Units also indicated that they provided the community with health education, emergency communications support, and surge staffing to Public Health and Social Sciences Emergency Fund local hospitals, emergency management agencies, and public health departments. Volunteers in these units provided a total of 36,016 hours in community service, and units within the affected regions reported that they had more volunteers who were ready and willing to assist if needed.
• The MRC program is supporting the planning stages of the public roll-out of an “Active Bystander” training curriculu Services (HHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House National Security Council, and the HHS office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Office of Policy and Planning, Division of Health System Policy (DHSP). It is anticipated that with training, more members of the public will be ready and able to assist should they be present at mass casualty events or other circumstances in which there are serious injuries or potential loss of life.

Marvin Greer - black history month

Historical interpreter featured during Black History Month at SCC Civil War program

Carneys Point Twp. — As part of Black History Month, Salem Community College will present, “The Civil War: A Soldier’s Tale” on Friday, February 24 at 9:30 a.m. The free, one-hour event will be held in the Sol and Jean Davidow Performing Arts Theatre, Davidow Hall, 460 Hollywood Ave., Carneys Point.

Historical interpreter Marvin Greer will portray a Black Horse Trooper from the American Civil War. Greer visits SCC from Colonial Williamsburg, where he supervises the historic Peyton Randolph House.

“Marvin’s first-person work in public history highlights an impressive host of talents that are sure to entertain and educate,” said Anthony Melita, a historian and SCC instructor who is organizing the event.

“The American Civil War defined us as a nation,” continued Melita. “It was a period — like all defining events — unique for its ability to dismiss impartiality, force opinions, and close ranks.”

The Black Horse Troop is praised by civilwartalk.com “for its daring exploits, and the valuable information and aid it rendered the Confederate commanders in some of the greatest engagements of the Civil War.”

Greer’s visit is sponsored by the SCC Institutional Diversity Committee.

For more information about the program, contact the SCC Public Relations Office at (856) 351-2602 or bclark@salemcc.edu.

 

Eric Stiles - OpEd on New Jersey Conservation in Delaware River Basin Watershed

From New Jersey, for New Jersey: Conservation Legislation Will Help People and Wildlife

By Eric Stiles, President/CEO New Jersey Audubon

On a wintry weekend in December, more than 80 volunteers came together to help New Jersey Audubon staff plant 1,320 native trees and shrubs on a working farm in Salem County.

The volunteers planted trees and shrubs along an irrigation pond that connects to the nearby Fenwick Creek, forming a riparian buffer that protects the waterway by filtering out pollutants in runoff while providing food and cover for wildlife. The Fenwick Creek flows into the Salem River, which in turn flows into the Delaware Bay, and is part of the larger Delaware River Basin.

That same weekend, Republicans and Democrats likewise joined together to pass the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act for the Nation (WIIN) Act, a legislative package that provides more than $10 billion in federal investment for water resources and infrastructure projects nationally.

This important legislation includes a critical authorization to support science-based restoration and protection projects in the Delaware River Basin. The WIIN Act passed in Congress with strong bipartisan support and was signed by President Obama on December 16, 2016.

Included in the larger WIIN Act was the Delaware River Basin Conservation Act (DRBCA). The DRBCA establishes the non-regulatory Delaware River Basin Restoration Program within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The new program creates a coordinated approach for identifying, prioritizing, and implementing restoration and protection projects throughout the watershed and supports locally-driven conservation projects through a competitive grant and technical assistance program.

The non-regulatory, incentive-based approach will support green jobs by leveraging private investment as part of the 50 percent non-federal match requirement for the grant and technical assistance program.

New Jersey Audubon, working in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation, has been at the forefront of advocating for the DRBCA through its leadership role in the Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed, which unites more than 100 members working throughout the watershed.

This program is designed to be bottom-up, leveraging the knowledge of organizations that work in our communities. Ultimately, it will bolster the substantial work already taking place in the watershed in order to combat important issues like water and habitat degradation, invasive species, and climate change.

As one of the original co-sponsors of this legislation in 2010, Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2nd Dist.) has been a steadfast advocate for the Delaware River Basin Conservation Act and a crucial player in seeing it through Congress.

“Protecting and promoting the Delaware River Basin for future generations has long been an economic and environmental priority for me. This bipartisan legislation will now help us leverage assets on a strategy to achieve our shared goal. I am proud to work closely with New Jersey Audubon and other advocates in South Jersey on this critical public-private partnership.” – Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2nd Dist.)

New Jersey Audubon applauds Congressman LoBiondo for his continued dedication to protecting and restoring the Delaware River Basin. The Congressman has a strong track record of supporting conservation both in our region and around the country. Earlier this month, Rep. LoBiondo joined just three of his Republican colleagues to break party lines and vote against an effort to roll back Bureau of Land Management regulations, which would utilize the best available science and increase public involvement in the agency’s land use planning process.

New Jersey Audubon ardently supports using the best available science to protect and effectively steward the land in our region that supports the people and wildlife that call it home. In New Jersey, the Basin is not only home to many incredible species like Atlantic sturgeon and red knot, but is also a source of clean drinking water for millions and a place for all people to connect with nature and learn about the world around us. We are proud to have champions in Congress who have fought passionately for the Delaware River Basin and the resources it provides.

New Jersey Audubon and the Coalition will continue to advocate for federal funds to be appropriated for the Delaware River Basin Restoration Program so that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service can begin its implementation as quickly as possible. It is imperative that Congress appropriates money for this science-based program so that federal funds can enhance private investment in protecting the natural resources of the basin.

Also, the Coalition will work to ensure the voice of the non-profit community is heard in the development of a basin-wide strategy as part of the Delaware River Basin Restoration Program. This is a landmark moment for the conservation movement, fueled by bi-partisan support that must be applauded.
