Does food taste better when you grow it yourself? Try it and see.
If you’d like to grow fresh veggies and fruits but can’t or don’t want to have a garden at home, consider a community garden. They’re sprouting up in many places around the Garden State.
Community gardens are sites — often on public land — where individuals can tend a patch of soil for the growing season, usually for a small fee. These gardens are often fenced to keep out critters, and water sources are usually provided. Some gardens even have picnic tables where gardeners can get acquainted and share tips on planting, weeding and watering.
To the Residents of Bossert Estates:
As you may have noticed the bridge at Bossert Park has been temporarily closed. It was closed at the insistence of our Joint Insurance Fund Liability Insurer. They have determined that the abutments are undermined and the guard rail is not up to code. We have had our engineer inspect the bridge and have four courses of action that we can take:
- We could permanently close the bridge, which is not an acceptable solution.
- We could replace the bridge. This option would be prohibitively expensive. The metal bridge itself is in good shape.
- We could hire an outside firm to do the necessary repairs.
- Our Public Works Department could make the necessary repairs.
The fourth option is the most feasible, since they would be the most inexpensive option. Although Public Works is right now short-handed, given all the variables using them still provides the best solution for re-opening the bridge in the shortest amount of time. We are in the planning and approval stage of the project. As soon as possible, we will begin to repair the bridge.
Thank you for your patience.
Mayor Jim Cann
1SG Mr. Richard Pinter, (Ret. PAARNG) received a plaque honoring him for his endless efforts in assisting in the planning our Township’s Veterans Day Ceremony for 13 years that was noted the “Best in Burlington County” for years.
He was honored for his participation in Memorial Day Ceremonies both in the city and the township. He was proclaimed as “The Long Bugler” who blew TAPS at many area cemeteries honoring those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our countries freedom for days before the actual Memorial Day holiday. His ceremonial final destination was held at our Township Monument.
It was truly our honor as the Township Committee to have him in attendance during our meeting on May 20th, 2013 at 7:30pm in our meeting room to accept our gratitude and plaque.
In attendance to offer well wishes to Mr. Pinter was our Township’s Veterans Advisory Committee, many township employees and residents.
We would like to offer our best wishes and good health to 1SG Dick Pinter.
Richard Pinter is The Lone Bugler.
He has been performing Taps in honor of American veterans as a retired major sergeant since 2000.
Traditionally Mr. Pinter visits 21 sites around Memorial Day in honor of fallen veterans throughout the region. And on Memorial Day itself he visits nine sites from dawn to dusk.
For 12 years he played Taps for those gathered, with American flags drawn and men and women standing at attention across a spectrum of generations.
