Budget
move
could
cut taxes
By JULIE STIPE
The Robbinsville Sun
The Robbinsville Township
Council introduced a resolu-
tion to amend the 2012 munici-
pal budget at a meeting on
May 10. The amendments
would move $60,000 from the
department of public works
funds for snow removal,
$40,000 of which would go to
the police departments budget
for overtime costs. The re-
maining $20,000 will go to-
ward reducing the tax levy.
The amendment would also
add three grants to the budget:
a Municipal Alliance Grant in
the amount of $12,399, a Click
It or Ticket Grant in the
amount of $4,000 and a Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection No Net Loss Reforesta-
tion Grant in the amount of
$1,731,307.
According to Chief Finan-
cial Officer Deborah Bauer,
the amendment would bring
the tax increase per $100 from
1.5 cents down to 1.4 cents.
This would decrease tax on the
average township home val-
ued at $385,000 from $2,091 to
$2,087.
Councilman Rich Levesque
noted the township has bud-
geted a full years salaries for
two police officers a sergeant
and a patrolman yet the posi-
tions are currently empty and
Students participate in mock accident
By JULIE STIPE
The Robbinsville Sun
Outside Robbinsville High
School on a recent Friday, Rob-
binsville High School students
were cut out of a wrecked car and
placed in an ambulance. One stu-
dent was determined to be driv-
ing under the influence and was
taken away in handcuffs, while
another was taken away in a
hearse.
The apparent accident was ac-
tually a re-enactment of a fatal
drunken-driving crash, and was
part of a larger event called Sen-
ior Safety and Awareness Day put
together by Robbinsville High
School teachers Laura Francoli-
no and Tawrye Mason.
This year is the second the
event has taken place, said Fran-
colino. The idea for the event
came about when Francolino re-
alized Robbinsville High Schools
students needed more education
on safety.
About three years ago, I had a

At Robbinsville High Schools Safety and Awareness Day, members of Robbinsville and Mercerville
departments of public safety, as well as high school students and teachers, helped coordinate Operation
Smash, a re-enactment of a drunken driving accident.

Golf classic proceeds
benefit education
The Robbinsville Education
Foundation will commit the pro-
ceeds of the upcoming Golf Clas-
sic to launch a three-year initia-
tive to fund a pre-engineering pro-
gram a Pond Road Middle School,
which will result in seamless
technology education for stu-
dents in grades six through 12.
The classic is scheduled for
May 22 at 1 p.m. at Mercer Oaks in
West Windsor.
Admission for individual
golfers, which includes dinner
and a buffet lunch, is $150.
The price for dinner only is $50.
Sponsorships at multiple levels
are available.
The REF, in collaboration with
the Board of Educations former
Partners in Education commit-
tee, previously raised $76,721 to
fund pre-engineering at Rob-
binsville High School, known as
Project Lead the Way.
That funding commitment last-
ed from 2004 to 2009.
This commitment, which will
span three years, will require the
REF to raise $61,060 to fully fund
the middle school program.
As designed, the middle school
pre-engineering program will
give students hands-on opportu-
nities to strengthen skills in sci-
ence, technology, engineering and
mathematics. Class assignments
will require students to create, de-
sign and build projects to solve
problems. Teachers will have to
receive specialized training, and
the initiative will also call for up-
grades of classroom technology.
Individuals or businesses that
would like to participate in the
event are encouraged to visit the
foundations website, www.re-
fkids.org, or call event co-chairs

Changing minds, one step at a
time was the rallying call of the
800 supporters who participated
in the fifth annual NAMI Mercer
Walk on May 5 on the campus of
Educational Testing Service
(ETS) in Princeton. NAMI Mer-
cer, an affiliate of the National Al-
liance on Mental Illness, spon-
sored the event with the dual
goals of fighting stigma and rais-
ing money to support its free pro-
grams for individuals and fami-
lies affected by mental illness.
The 56-member Bristol-Myers
Squibb (BMS) team was the
largest of the 65 registered teams.
Team Janssen CNS raised the
most money, followed by Team
Maxam. Suzanne Gross of Cran-
bury, a member of Team Maxam,
was the Walks highest individual
fundraiser. Donations to date for
the NAMI Mercer Walk 2012 ex-
ceed $122,000.
Mercer County Executive and
honorary chairman Brian Hugh-
es and U.S. Rep. Rush Holt partici-
pated in the opening ceremony.
Honorary Chairman Mark Neu-
mann of BMS also attended. Fol-
lowing the walk, there was a com-
plimentary picnic and live con-
cert by Xenia Sky, Mike Glazier
and the Riverside Bluegrass
Band.

Special to The Sun
NAMI Mercer walk (special to the sun): Walkers begin lining up at the start line for 5th Annual NAMI
Mercer Anti-Stigma Walk on May 5 at ETS in Princeton. The event raised more than $122,000 for pro-
grams in support of individuals and families affected by mental illness.
NAMI event raises mental illness awareness
discussion with two of my female
students and we got on the topic
of defending yourself, and I real-
ized how much they lacked in
street smarts, Francolino said.
In a way, its a good thing that we
have so many well-behaved and
trusting students. However, they
would be leaving us and going off
in the U.S. or abroad to many
places that do not even remotely
resemble the Robbinsville com-
munity.
Francolino brought the idea to
Robbinsville High School Princi-
pal Polly Avery, and asked about
setting up an event for senior
girls that would offer the students
emotional and physical prepara-
tion for their years after high
school.
Avery was interested in the
idea and suggested the event in-
clude a drinking and driving com-
ponent. It was also expanded to
include boys well as girls.
Were trying to give students
information to empower them to
make good decisions all the
time, Francolino said. Last
years event also had components
dealing with healthy relation-
ships, date rape and domestic-
abuse awareness.
This years accident reenact-
ment, called Operation
Smashed, took center stage, with
Robbinsville students from Stu-
dents Against Drunk Driving
(SADD) playing the parts of crash
victims, even sporting realistic
wounds applied with make-up
by a Robbinsville drama teacher.
Robbinsville police, fire and
ambulance services got into the
act by coordinating the fake acci-
dent, arresting the impaired stu-
dent driver, and removing crash
victims from the wreck into am-
bulances.
Brenna Funeral Home even do-
nated the use of a hearse to take
away the student acting the part
of a deceased crash victim.
Students also heard talks from
Capital Healths injury-preven-
tion coordinator, local police offi-
cer Barbara Borges and Avery, as
well as state Sen. Linda Green-
stein and Robbinsville Mayor
Dave Fried.
The Mercer Academy of Mar-
tial Arts attended the event to
give senior girls personal-defense
classes, teaching them how to
fend off an attacker, Francolino
said, while senior boys used a vir-
tual-driving simulator, which
recreated the dangers of distract-
ed driving. Many students accel-
erated, veered off the road or
even hit simulated pedestrians
once the distractions began,
Francolino said.
The event focused on seniors,
Francolino said, since this group,
as they prepare to leave the pro-
tective environment of high
school, are most in need of hear-
ing about safety.
As senior year comes to an
end, and the students are bom-
barded with parties, prom,
farewell get-togethers with their
friends before leaving for college,
and new surroundings with unfa-
miliar faces, its important that
we try to give them some extra
knowledge and some experience
with potential situations they
could face, Francolino said.
Robbinsville business adminis-
trator Joy Tozzi applauded the
event, especially Operation
Smashed, adding she was taken
aback with emotion seeing the
recreated crash scene.
We speak to our children
about the dangers of drinking
and driving but because of that
feeling of teenage invincibility it
often falls on deaf ears, Tozzi
said. I believe visual programs
such as this are learning tools
that make the seriousness of this
discussion much more of a reali-
ty.
Operation Smashed was timely,
as high school proms are fast ap-
proaching, but Francolino
stressed that the messages about
safety relayed at the event are im-
portant for all of life, not just high
school.
Its not only about completing
the 12th grade and walking across
the field with your diploma in
hand; we want to keep them safe
afterward and see them have
whole and healthy lives, Fran-
colino said.

Wonders of Water
Members of Girl Scout Brown-
ie Troop No. 71146 of Robbinsville
completed their Wonders of
Water journey project in April
as they worked together to clean
up the stream at the soccer fields
off Gordon Road. The troop start-
ed off their journey by making
water promises, such as turning
off the water as they brush their
teeth, to raise their awareness of
water conservation and to main-
tain clean water on earth.
Members of the Peace Corps
came to a troop meeting to speak
about their experiences in Africa,
specifically talking about the
hard work that goes into finding
clean water for everyday use. The
girls explored the effects of water
pollution through hands-on activ-
ities at their meetings.
The troop brainstormed differ-
ent ways that they could bring
their message of clean water to
the community. The girls agreed
to clean the streams by the soccer
fields and were thrilled to hear
the township would provide signs
to put up around the stream to
relay their message.
They worked hard at home and
together at their meetings to
agree on a slogan and pictures for
the signs. Their signs read,
Work as a team to keep the
stream clean. That's our goal!
To complete the journey, the
troop, parents and leaders (Lara
Keller, Sandy Carduner and Jean
Marie Alban) met together at the
stream and collected eight bags of
trash. Troop 71146 hopes that
their signs remind the members
of the community to work togeth-
er to keep the stream clean every
day.

the officers may not be hired until later in
the year. Levesque proposed putting this
extra money toward police overtime, in-
stead of moving money from the depart-
ment of public works.
They wont be hired for a full year,
Levesque said. Half of their salaries
wont be used. In fact, Levesque noted, a
significant portion of the year is already
gone, and since the township has not filled
either of the two positions, the township
has already saved a portion of the amount
budgeted.
Township attorney Mark Roselli said
the township is currently in the middle of
negotiating a contract with the PBA, and
that the extra money will be needed when
the contract settles.
Bauer agreed, adding the total amount
in the budget for police department
salaries and wages is close to what the
PBA wanted, and the township is almost
finished negotiating a new contract with
the union.
She also added that if negotiations went
well and not all the money was needed for
the new contract, another amendment
could be made to the budget.
Councilman Ron Witt commended
Bauer and others for the municipal budget.
Were really budgeting some prudent
values, he said. Were talking about fis-
cally responsible decisions being made.
A public hearing on the amended budget
will be held at the next Robbinsville town-
ship council meeting on May 24.
In other news, Sharbell Development
Corp Senior Vice President Tom Troy
came before the council to discuss a provi-
sion in the zoning ordinance for town cen-
ter. Troy said he also brought up the
issue during a zoning board meeting on
May 9.
The provision, Troy said, is commonly
referred to as the 25 percent rule, and re-
quires that 25 percent minimum of the
mass of each town center zone be built as
commercial space. The ordinance was
drafted this way, Troy said, because the
township wanted a balance of residential
and commercial development in town cen-
ter, and feared that without the provision,
all development would be residential.
Troy said Sharbell is ready to begin
work on the last remaining corner of the
town center 3 (TC-3) area, but because his
plans do not include 25 percent commer-
cial space, he has not been able to go ahead
with the work.
Although the ordinance does require 25
percent commercial development in town
center, in its more specific requirements
for each zone, it specifies a zero square-foot
commercial-development requirement for
the TC-3 zone of town center.
Because of this zero square-foot require-
ment, Troy said, the issue is one of inter-
pretation. The interpretation by the zon-
ing officer is that the 25 percent law does
apply to TC-3, Troy said.
Troy also argued the ordinance has
served its purpose, since there is presently
more than the minimum amount of com-
mercial development in TC-1, and more
than the maximum amount in TC-3.
I am suggesting to council that this sec-
tion of the ordinance is worthy of re-
moval, Troy said.
Roselli warned the council to be careful
in commenting on the matter because of
the possibility of litigation by Sharbell.
Roselli also noted ordinances are subject
to interpretation and are interpreted by of-
ficials all the time.
AMENDMENT
Continued from page 1
Amendment will add three grants to budget
in our opinion
W
e re all familiar with Me-
morial Day. We know that it
is a day set aside to honor
the brave men and women who made
the ultimate sacrifice to protect our
country and the freedom we have.
And we know that it is celebrated on
the last Monday in May, thereby creat-
ing a three-day weekend for most.
Maybe it shouldnt be that way.
Back when Memorial Day was first
established during the Civil War era, it
was observed on May 30. It had its own
special day, which, many will argue,
kept the focus on the meaning of the
day.
They have a point.
When one thinks of Memorial Day
these days, its easy to lose focus.
There are Memorial Day sales at
stores and the kick-off to summer
sentiment. That people have three
days off often overshadows what the
spirit of Memorial Day is all about.
We dont want to sound completely
negative. Many communities still take
pride in holding a thoughtful, mean-
ingful Memorial Day ceremony
and/or parade. We still see flags dis-
played. We still see a lot of people take
time to honor those who died serving
our country.
But we also cant help but think that
lumping Memorial Day into a three-
day weekend has diminished the
meaning of the day at least some-
what. There are too many distractions.
How many of us have made Memorial
Day weekend plans that have absolute-
ly nothing to do with honoring the
meaning of the day?
Memorial Day should be special. It
should be a time when every Ameri-
can reflects on the sacrifices made on
his or her behalf and takes the time to
pay proper respect. Nothing should
distract from those sentiments.
Will the three-day weekend be re-
placed with a move back to May 30?
Doubtful. Its going to be up to each in-
dividual to cut through the clutter and
honor those who made the ultimate
sacrifice.
Memorial Day
Three-day weekend or a return to a traditional day of remembrance?
Holiday weekend distracts
Memorial Day shouldnt be about
sales or heading to the beach. It
should be about honoring those who
died serving this country.
Unfortunately, the three-day weekend
distracts from that goal.
