My mistake, Jim. Thanks.

All the boys soccer teams also volunteered. Any other teams involved ?
Jim Dugan September 2, 2013 at 12:11 am
The boys & girls cross country, girls & boys soccer, field hockey, girls volleyball and manyRead More students were involved! Job is finished and student return to their beautiful classrooms Tuesday! Thank you to all!

First, I'd like to thank the rec depot and Al and Phil and all the volunteers that did this work.Read More Amazing isn't it?

If people are voluntarily giving their money to this, then I guess that's how they want itRead More spent...if some people think the money should be used for something different, why don't they start a fundraiser for that cause?

Is there a zoning and/or sign sculpture ordinance to prevent permanent large statues and sculpturesRead More from being placed around town? Who on the zoning board , town council, planning board or appearance committee to give us an answer?

Moorestown has a wonderful fine art heritage and deserves a one of a kind fine art sculpture forRead More Percheron Park. Fine Art Sculpture involves creating a unique work with visual movement and harmony, which goes well beyond the replication of a specific subject. The well trained fine artist will create a composition that emphasizes form and line to lead the eye in a pleasing way. The sculpture design can stand alone, convey a message and create an emotion whether subtle or strong as the viewers eye moves throughout the composition. True Fine Art Sculpture is not duplication of nature or computerized carving of plastic or other material from a garden ornament factory. The traditional Lost wax process of creating a fine art sculpture in bronze is a tedious one with many steps from clay, to mold making with rubber and plaster through the wax, then ceramic shell and finally to the bronze pouring of molten 2400 degree bronze into the final molds, assembled, chased and patina. Fine Art Sculpture is experiencing a renaissance with increased attention to the well designed traditional, impressionist, Post Modern, Humanist and Academic fine art methods. As with music, dance and the other great art forms, tremendous dedication, training and skill is required to produce works worthy of the sophisticated and educated audience. Bronze sculpture lasts for many hundreds of years, so why not offer our best for the future generations of Moorestown to enjoy?

Thanks to those who donated their time and funds to this undertaking. Are monies raised forRead More Percheron Park going to be donated to the Swedes barn project? Are open space funds being used for the archaeologist ?

Kudos to all but how muchis needed? Some say $200,000 but Deputy Mayor told us $60-80,000 at theRead More council meeting. Will the statute be safe for children to play on? When will they start?

Veronica has always been a thoughtful,caring person. I am not surprised she is taking on thisRead More adventure. Lisa Hammell, former private viola instructor P.S. Veronica, we still have your string chamber ensemble chair. It is affectionately called, 'Ronnie's chair.'

Good luck Veronica! We are all proud of you. No doubt about it, this experience will significantlyRead More shape your future. Our country would be better off if each young person spent time in the Peace Corps, military or other service organization. They would have the opportunity to grow up quickly and learn to make immediate as well as life decisiions without the influence of parents.

Sounds like a blast! I heard that John might be throwing out the first pitch so I'm bringing my 11Read More yr old son and a bunch of his friends to catch the game and cheer him on to throw a strike! See you there to celebrate a great cause and one near and dear to many of our hearts.

It was an awesome night. I hope everyone had a good time. It was nice to be involved withRead More something where the community became so excited! So many people to thank - I can only hope a simple "thank you" to all will suffice for now. Thank you to all.

Ok is the area there for parking or not. If you put no parking there then fine. It will be noRead More parking for LAX as well as for butterfly watchers. You can't allow one and not the other. No way to control that. It is public, tax paid for property. You may not like that they are using it to park for the LAX and other sports but not a lot there can be done. What should be done, is BOE should solicit the township and the country to approve parking on the side of the road. If it is approved then the BOE should make organized parking spots that are safe for all to use. It would solve 98% of the problem. Tournament time will still be a problem but it will solve a lot of it.
The Situation September 6, 2012 at 02:09 am
Whatever. Minimize the opposing view Ed. Your game is old and predictable. Its obviously not aRead More parking lot. Lets all go park on your lawn. Twist it any way you choose. Thats your style. Nuff said. Out.
Ed Nice September 6, 2012 at 03:57 am
Who is minimizing anyone opinion? I asked the question if it is marked as a no parking area. I haveRead More seen both sports people and people enjoying the saved space park there. I also suggested a solution. So instead of breaking my balls Situation why don't you come up with a solution? Wouldn't it be nice if the open space folks worked together with the sports groups to solve the issue instead of pointing fingers like you. Just think if what I proposed was done then no one would need to park there at Wigmores park. And, just think if maybe we could even put a cross walk in from the field side if parking was approved to make it safe to cross the road for the people that want to enjoy the open space area. Or are you one of the people that thinks it's ok to park there if you stay in the park but not if you cross the street? We all pay the same tax rates. The point I was making above is it isn't just land for the MSOS or STEM.

The Tender has given my husband a better quality of life Barbara and her staff are doing anRead More extraordinary job. I am so blessed to have met Barbara Fetty . She is so knowledgeable and helpful. She understands the stress and strain that we are all going through.
Linda Dobbs September 6, 2012 at 12:56 pm
The Tender truly is a quiet treasure here in Moorestown. The support it provides to seniors withRead More dementia, as well as their caregivers, is one of a kind, and it fills a need not found elsewhere. Barbara Fetty is a tremendous resource for families dealing with dementia and Alzheimers.

I'd do it but I don't have any problems with PATCO. The blog would be empty Plenty of parking,Read More speedpass card, good ac and heat in cars. Comfortable seats. The time schedule (frequency of trains) makes SEPTA look pathetic. In 15 years of riding I can count one hand the number of times there was a problem that lasted more then 10-15 minutes. And then they provided buses. How can it get better ? A cold beer with some pretzals for the ride home would be nice. ;) Ok wait I thought of one thing. Fix the fact that cell service is terrible to nonexistant at underground stations and in tunnels. That's an easy fix people would love.
Bill August 9, 2012 at 02:06 pm
The Swedes Run Barn would be considered Historic Property. The Interpretive Statement clearlyRead More includes preservation of it. I think it would be pretty funny if STEM wins. Then the judge makes them return all the money used for the work at Strawbridge Lake. Not only have they used the fund money to maintain the park grounds, they also used it to repair the dams. Clearly against thier own recommended uses. "Baron argued the use of the term “such lands” restricts the township to using the fund to maintain/improve land purchased with the fund, which Wesley Bishop was not." And neither was Strawbridge Lake Park "In the meantime, council has to decide whether to move forward with the Wesley Bishop North project, knowing the court could ultimately rule against the township, which would leave them on the hook for the Trust Fund money. Bookbinder warned Coleman of such a possibility." If they win maybe I'll start a lawsuit and force the township to refund every dollar spent on on lands/property not orginally purchased with open space funds. Then again I shouldn't have to. Mark Hines himself didn't want the money spent on Strawbridge to begin with. So maybe he can explain to voters how the money used will be replaced. This during the debate to use funds on the dams. "Mark Hines, co-founder of Moorestown Save Our Space (SOS), told council that most voters want this fund used only for the acquisition of open space,"

Our Town August 10, 2012 at 06:03 pm
This article doesn't really spell it out, but a current Courier Post article puts cost estimates atRead More $160K. Are we insane with these costs? a quarter million for Zelley park that is already falling apart and now $160K for what? To "fix" a dilapidated structure, by modernizing it to the point of removing any last shred of appeal that prompted some misguided folks to want to save it in the first place? Some complain about a lost art subject or loss of a picturesque background for wedding photographs and you know what, they're right. There is a reason you never see anyone setting up an easel and canvas in the middle of Laurel Creek or posing for wedding photographs in front of the *gasp* picturesque homes of Moorestown Hunt. Well meaning Moorestonians need a little lesson in historic preservation and cladding barely standing stone walls with all manners of the latest techno building products ain't it, donated or not.
