Goodbye,
Kevin Comers deal with Blue
Jays among years top stories
By KEVIN CANESSA JR.
The Shamong Sun
ach year, here at
Elauwit Media, we like
to take a look back at
the year that just went
by. Here, therefore, is a
look back at how we
covered Shamong in
2011. Keep in mind though our
first edition wasnt until April 13.
On April 13, residents of Sha-
mong went to their mailboxes
and found something new there
a copy of a brand-new newspa-
per, The Shamong Sun. The Sun
is owned by Elauwit Media,
which now operates 13 weekly
newspapers in South Jersey and
in the Princeton area of Central
Jersey. As the original headline
read: The Sun rises in Sha-
mong, as it has every Wednes-
day since.
In April, there was immediate
concern the Lenape Regional
High School district budget
would raise property taxes by an
average of $56.
Meanwhile, residents and
committee members debated
what options they had to deal
with the Packenah Pit, which
had long been an issue in the
community. After consulting
with residents, it was deter-
mined that the area of land
around Rancocas Valley would
be left as is.
The committee was concerned
with making the trails more
available to the community.
Also in April, Valenzano Win-
ery began a $750,000 solar panel
project that was due to be com-
pleted in June. However, because
of disagreements on filing an ap-
plication and fees between the
winery and the New Jersey
Pinelands Commission, the proj-
ect was halted.
At the end of the month, the
Shamong School District budget
failed by a vote of 433-359, accord-
ing to unofficial results from
Burlington County.
Officials said the budget would
have raised taxes by about $64 for
the average assessed home.
Also, school board candidates
were elected. The two candidates,
who ran unopposed, received the
following votes: Melissa Ciliber-
ti, 450 and Gregory Vitagliano,
411. The Lenape Regional High
School Districts proposed budg-
et failed for the second consecu-

E
tive year. In the LRHSD, 5,487 vot-
ers said yes to the spending
plan, while 7,462 said no. Had it
passed, the district estimated that
Shamong residents would have
seen a tax levy increase of 2.91
cents, resulting in a $55.91 annual
regional school tax increase for
the average assessed home of
$192,088.
As May began, it was clear resi-
dents would likely see a spike in
property taxes.
The township committee voted
to approve a municipal budget
that would raise the then tax rate
levy 1.3 cents, equaling $27 for the
average assessed home of
$192,000.
The then-current tax rate levy
was 2.7 cents; with this approved
budget the tax rate levy increase,
to 4.07 cents. Shamong Township
still had the lowest tax rate in the
county, officials said. The total
budget was $2.6 million.
Also during the month, the K-8
school board and township com-
mittee met several times to trim
from the defeated school budget.
The township committee suggest-
ed the board look at a total of
$150,000 in cuts. The areas the
cuts would come from would be
$35,000 from a librarian retiring,
$50,000 from energy and electrici-
ty and $65,000 that would be saved
by the superintendent retiring
and the school district moving
into a shared service for the su-
perintendents position.
When the sixth month of the
year arrived, Senecas Teacher of
the Year was announced. It was
Tracy Betts, a teacher who has a
real passion for what she does.
The seventh-year English teacher
knew what she wanted to do from
a very young age and considers
herself lucky to have a career she
enjoys so much.
I have wanted to be a teacher
for as long as I remember. I used
to play school when I was
younger, Betts said in June. My
desire to teach was further rein-
forced by the amazing teachers I
had in my life. Ive picked up posi-
tive attributes from each along
the way.
Meanwhile, the LRHSD scored
a driving simulator for drivers
education courses.
The simulator came thanks to
the hard work students put into
an antitexting while driving cam-
paign. The district was one of two
winners selected at the end of
May for the U Got Brains Cham-
pion Schools Project. LRHSD
competed against 18 other schools
from around the state for the
grand prize of a driving simula-
tor, which was donated by the
New Jersey Manufacturers Insur-
ance Company. Their objective
was to develop a creative, cutting-
edge project that brought aware-
ness to the issue of teen driving
safety. The district-wide Stay
Alive Dont Text and Drive
campaign was jump started by a
$1,000 grant and included social
media networking and signs post-
ed throughout school buildings
encouraging students, staff and
community members to take anti-
texting while driving pledges.
As summer got into full swing,
the township was ordered by the

Burlington County Board of Tax-
ation to perform a tax reassess-
ment. The last reassessment took
place in 1989.
The reason for the reassess-
ment is to attempt to bring every-
one to 100 percent of market
value.
Currently we are at 54.1 per-
cent of market value, and nothing
has been inspected in 22 years,
Jay Renwick, tax assessor, said at
the time. This will equitably dis-
tribute the tax burden over the
township. Some people right now
are over-assessed, and some peo-
ple are under-assessed. There will
be some winners and some losers,
but right now there is a lot of in-
equity.
The township was first ordered
to conduct a revaluation for the
2011 tax year, but was able to se-
cure an extension for 2012. The
revaluation was changed to a re-
assessment. A revaluation is
where an outside firm performs
the re-evaluation and reassess-
ment is where the township tax
assessor performs it.
Meanwhile, the committee
awarded a contract to Gen II Con-
tracting Co., Inc. for maintenance
of the municipal building and
roof. The contractors quoted a
price of $87,150 for the repairs,
which was the lowest quote, with
some quotes ranging as high as
$180,000.
However, township engineer
Robert Mannix warned the com-
mittee and township of possible
unforeseen extra costs associated
with the repairs.
Also in July, the LHRSD re-
ceived an increase of about $1.3
million from its 2011-2012 initial
total of $25.8 million in state aid.
Lenape Regional High School Dis-
trict Business Administrator Jim
Hagar said the school district
wouldnt immediately know how
the money could be spent.
While August was a surprising-
ly uneventful month in Shamong,
it wasnt for one local teen.
Each year, groups of students
embark on trips to selected coun-
tries around the world through
the People to People Student Am-
bassador program. Jaden Tyrrell,
15, of Shamong, was one of the
students to attend the program.
The People to People Student
Ambassador Program operates
under People to People Interna-
tional, a non-political, private-sec-
tor organization founded by Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower in
1956 to further international
goodwill and understanding. It
provides educational goodwill

Summer saw tax reassessment
travel programs for three groups
fifth- and sixth-grades, seventh-
and eighth-grades and ninth-
through 12th-grades. Each group
can have 40 students with four
leaders.
The leaders can be teachers, re-
tired teachers or school adminis-
trators. Programs are offered all
over the country and thousands
of students travel each year.
Tyrrell was first approached to
go to Germany with the program
for tennis. I looked online and
saw what the itinerary was, but I
didnt want to do the Germany
trip, Tyrrell said. But I was rec-
ommended for the Australia trip
and I looked at the itinerary for
that and wanted to go.
The month ended with great
news for a former Seneca base-
ball star.
Negotiations came down to the
wire, but, in the end, Kevin
Comer decided to sign with the
Toronto Blue Jays. Comer will re-
ceive $1.65 million and money to
cover college costs if he decides
to attend college in the future.
Comer did have a full scholar-
ship to Vanderbilt University,
where he wanted to study human
organizational development.
There was a lot of negotia-
tions, Comer said. It really
came down to what they were of-
fering and if it was enough to pull
me away from school. I wanted to
play baseball either way.
Final negotiations came down
to the wire on Monday, Aug. 15,
with Comer signing with just 10
minutes left until the midnight
deadline. Comer, who now has an
agent, and his father, Ernie, nego-
tiated the deal.
The month ended with a most
unusual weather event: Hurri-
cane Irene. It came just a week
after another strange occurrence
in New Jersey a measureable
earthquake.
Irene may not have hit all of
Southern Jersey with the full
force that a Category 1 hurricane
brings with it, but it still brought
damage. In the end, along the
East Coast, millions were left
without power, dozens lost their
lives and the cost of damage is es-
timated to be in the billions.
Many municipalities in New Jer-
sey were in the direct path of the
storm and all had their own way
of dealing with it.
Shamong was among them. On
the Thursday morning before the
storm, the township held meet-
ings to coordinate with the state
Office of Emergency Manage-
ment, the fire company and emer-
gency medical services.
The township wanted to make
sure each of the organizations
were ready for the storm and
that there was a collective plan
in place. Thats precisely what
happened, as damage was mini-
mal.
As the ninth month rolled
along, the township school dis-
trict was still in the process of de-
ciding whether it wanted its own
superintendent or if it should
enter into a shared service with
another township.
In the interim, it brought on Dr.
Dolores Szymanski as interim su-
perintendent. Szymanski had
been contracted to be with the
school until the end of January,
but the district later made her ap-
pointment permanent toward the
end of the calendar year.
I saw a wonderful opportunity
to serve the student population of
Burlington County, Szymanski
said.
At the end of the month, we
learn about Kathryn Gigantiello,
a Shamong resident who starred
in her colleges production of
The Women of Lockerbie.
Gigantiello is a sophomore at
the University of Mary Washing-
ton in Virginia. She is a 2010 grad-
uate of Seneca High School.
In the play, Gigantiello played
one of the women of Lockerbie.
This is my first play at col-
lege, Gigantiello said. When I
was at Seneca, I was in all the
plays and two musicals.
Tryouts were held the first
week of classes.
If someone was selected, they
were invited back to a second
round of tryouts, and then select-
ed for the play from the second
round.
As autumn got underway, state
police announced a rash of bur-
glaries in the township.
In the past couple of weeks,
Shamong has had three daytime
home break-ins. A few months
back, the township had several
car break-ins, as well.
A lot of the cars had been left
unlocked and whatever electron-

Student travels with People to People
ics or anything like that had been
taken, Sue Onorato, township
administrator, said in October.
Onorato said the car break-ins
have subsided, but she was not
able to say if the car and home
break-ins are connected. The
home break-ins are similar to
ones that happened a few years
back in the community where the
burglar was kicking the front
door in to gain entry.
The township issued a release
of what residents should do to try
to prevent a break-in or how to
respond if they see anything sus-
picious.
The township advised resi-
dents to make sure that their door
locks and windows were working
properly and to also lock their car
doors during the day as well as at
night.
Residents were also asked to
look out for their neighbors resi-
dences if they know they are
going to be away.
October ended with many
schools around the country deal-
ing more intensively with the
issue of bullying. At Seneca High
School, a program was put togeth-
er to deal with this issue and to
help get younger students in the
district involved.
L.I.V.E., Leaders in Violence
Education, was part of the dis-
tricts initiative for the statewide
Week of Respect.
I started this program five
years ago at Seneca because my
brother was being bullied at
school, Jaclyn Cerutti, a history
teacher at Seneca High School,
said. I felt powerless, and it made
me nauseous to know when he
was going to school, that he was
being bullied.
Cerutti created a mentor pro-
gram with the high school stu-
dents and the middle-school stu-
dents for teens being bullied or
witnessing other students being
bullied.
This grew beyond my expecta-
tions, Cerutti said. The kids
have been very passionate about
this.
In November, we learned the
LRHDS saw a slight uptick in
crime.
The district released its annual
report for violence, vandalism,
weapons and substance abuse.
The report encompasses all of the
high schools in the district
Seneca, Lenape, Shawnee and
Cherokee, and breaks the data up
in each category.
The district saw a slight in-
crease in violence, but a decrease
in substance abuse, vandalism
and weapons.
There were a total of 128 inci-
dents in the 2010-2011, year, up 3
from 125 incidents in 2009-2010.
None of the incidents were gang
related.
As the years final month rolled
in, we learned of resident Steve
Bond, who found out that a brace
he needed to help his MS was not
covered by insurance.
Residents and members of his
church came together to help
him.
I saw his condition deterio-
rate considerably in the last year
or so when he would come to
church, Fred Mancinelli said.
He went from walking to
using a cane. A member of our
church, Jim Smith, was able to
get him a scooter to use and the
church had a pew removed so he
could attend church.
When the subject came up
about the brace Bond needed to
help his mobility, the congrega-
tion decided to get together to
help him raise money.
We are a small congregation
at Indian Mills United
MethodistChurch, Mancinelli
said. We have collections for him
every Sunday.
The brace that Bond needs
straps to his legs below the
knee and has a battery pack that
stimulates the nerves and mus-
cles.

T
his is a week for reflection at
Elauwit Media. A time to take
a look back at the previous 12
months. What went right. What went
wrong. What we can do better.
This time last year, we had seven
newspapers. Now, we have 13. We
added Suns in Washington Township,
Tabernacle and Shamong in South
Jersey.
And we launched our first three
newspapers in Central Jersey: in
Lawrence, Montgomery and Hopewell.
While the growth is great, it also
presents challenges.
Weve brought new people on board.
Weve had to restructure our news-
room.
Weve had to deal with logistical is-
sues that happen every time we
launch a new newspaper.
But the response has been terrific.
We want to thank all of you who have
welcomed your Sun into your home.
Every week, you send us news items,
photos and suggestions about how we
can improve our newspapers. For that,
we are grateful.
This week also is a time to look
ahead. In next weeks editions, we will
feature interviews with local leaders,
who will offer their take on what 2012
will bring to your hometown and
school district.
For us, the early part of the year
looks like it will be another growth
spurt, as we expand our operations in
Central Jersey.
Later in the year? Well, well proba-
bly grow again. But, right now, were
not certain where and when that
growth will take place.
We promise to do our best to contin-
ue to bring you local news not found
elsewhere.
We always welcome your feedback
and ideas, and hope that you wont be
shy in sharing your thoughts with us
as we continue to grow and serve more
communities.
Another busy year
Thank you for helping us continue to grow
A busy 2011
This year saw Elauwit Media almost
double its number of newspapers.
Next year promises to bring more
growth. We thank you for your contin-
ued support.

Whens the last time you made $800,000

For South Jersey local Chris Klodnicki,
it was just this past week when he took
home the top earnings in the Epic Poker
League Main Event.
The top 10 players in the world took on
Klodnicki at the Palms Casino Resort in
Las Vegas for the third annual event. Fol-
lowing five days of action packed tourna-
ment play amongst a stacked field, it was
Klodnicki emerging as the victor, taking
$801,680 and the Champions ring back
home.
If you dont know anything about poker,
brace yourself.
In the final hand of the night, the (even-
tual runnerup) went all-in on a flop of
8c7d3d with AK off suit. Klodnicki called,
holding A4 of diamonds for an Ace-high
flush draw.
Klodnicki paired the four on the turn
and that was enough to (win), an official
report about the win states.

Keep Christ in Christmas banner ques-

folks strolling through downtown Pitman
were taken aback recently when they no-
ticed a huge white banner touting Christ
and complained it was unconstitutional.
The Burlington County Board
of Chosen Freeholders honored
Holly Funkhouser Cucuzzella,
the director of the public health
education section of the county
health department on Wednesday,
Dec. 14, with a proclamation for
having been awarded the distinc-
tion of Health Educator of the
Year by the NJ Society of Public
Health Educators (SOPHE).
This annual award recognizes
a dedicated member of NJ
SOPHE, who has shown an active
commitment, excellence in prac-
tice and demonstrated involve-
ment to health education and the
organization.
We are extremely lucky to
have such a dedicated and talent-
ed health education director
working for the county, said
Burlington County Freeholder
Mary Ann OBrien. Educating
the public about health issues is a
vitally important part of keeping
our residents safe and healthy.
Holly has been the countys
health educator/risk communica-
tor for almost 10 years, and is a
doctoral student at Drexels
School of Public Health.
In the past year, she was part of
a team that produced the CDC
award-winning video Ready Fo-
Sure, a public service announce-
ment for national preparedness
month.
She also served on the regional
team to create a smartphone ap-
plication for health-care
providers to dispel myths sur-
