Serving up murder, mystery and comedy


Voorhees Theatre Company student board brings The Murderous Mansion of Mr. Uno to the stage
By ZANE CLARK
The Sun
A cranky Army general, a
charming ditz, a pill-addicted
wife of a senator, a know-it-all
professor and a whole cast full of
other kooky, eccentric characters
are coming to Voorhees, when on
Saturday, Feb. 21, the Voorhees
Theatre
Companys
student
board, in association with the
Voorhees Theatre company, presents The Murderous Mansion of
Mr. Uno.
Produced and performed entirely by the high school-aged students of the Voorhees Theatre
Companys student board, The
Murderous Mansion of Mr. Uno
is a murder mystery comedy that
finds the mysterious Mr. Uno
dying (multiple times) after inviting several eccentric guests to his
mansion.
As the guests start dying as
well, those who remain have to
find the killer before its too late,
with the identity of the assailant
decided by audience ballot during
the plays intermission, and one
of the shows multiple endings
played out as a result.
With students directing and
filling the cast of the show, co-directors Emily Frantz, 17, and
Alexis Schmidt, 18, both of
Voorhees, said the cast cant even
get through three pages without

Pictured are members of the Voorhees Theatre Company student board as they practice for their upcoming murder mystery show The Murderous Mansion of Mr. Uno, which will take place on Feb. 21 at Kresson Elementary School. The show, a comedic take on the standard murder
mystery, is produced and performed entirely by the high school-aged students of the student board.

Its a pretty cool experience
because we got to choose the
show, we have the budget to do
whatever we want, were in

charge of costumes, props, everything its interesting, Frantz


said. Its really fun to work with
your peers.
Schmidt said it was her and

Frantz first time directing instead of acting, so they were gaining an appreciation for everything it takes for people their age
to come together and put on a

show without the help of adults.


We were always on stage, so
we never really saw what hap-

CALL NOW FOR FOR WINTER SAVINGS!

Registration now underway for AWA fundraiser

NJ Lic. #13vh0111555900

The Animal Welfare Association of Voorhees is asking people


to put on their capes and save the
day for some homeless animals
by participating in its annual
Paws & Feet 5K Race & Doggie
Fun Day fundraising event on
Saturday, May 16 at Cooper River
Park in Pennsauken.
The theme of this years event,
Superheroes, was chosen to illustrate the AWAs belief that when
it comes to homeless animals, ordinary people often go
out of their way to
perform extraordi-

nary actions.
Although the event is still several months away, the website for
race and walk registration officially opened last week, so those
interested can now sign up and
start fundraising.
Last year, more than $100,000
was raised through the event, and
this year the AWA is hoping to
raise even more.
All donations and funds raised
from the event go directly to the
care of animals in the AWAs
adoption center through providing shelter, food, medication and
spaying/neutering services.
The 5k race is a USA Track and
Field-certified chip-timed run,
with a $30 registration fee for
those ages 16 years and older and
$15 for those under 16 years old,
with runners in both age brackets

Budget time

108 Kings Highway East


Haddonfield, NJ 08033
856-427-0933

Its that time of year again when tough decisions have to be made
f you sit on a school board or municipal governing body, youre entering the part of the year that
probably causes you the most
headaches. Its budget time. Its time to
do the impossible: provide outstanding
service for little or no money.
A few years ago, Gov. Christie made
headlines and more than a few enemies when he slashed state funding
and eventually added a 2 percent cap
on tax hikes.
Since then, at least some of the
money has returned. Sometime this
month, the governor will release state
funding figures for this year.
But its safe to say that no district or
town will find itself rolling in dough.
Governing bodies will continue to face
decisions that involve reducing or
holding the line on services and/or
raising taxes. And we all love more

Get involved
Think taxes are too high? Think services
have been cut too deeply? Now is the time
to make your voice heard. Its budget season, and most local governing bodies have
ways to involve the public in the decisionmaking process.

taxes, dont we?


We already pay the highest property
taxes in the nation $8,161 on average,
according to recently-released data
from the Department of Community
Affairs so why not pay more?
One bright spot some would say
the only bright spot to come of this is
that many governing bodies these days
have made the budget process open to
the public.
Transparent is the watchword
today.
Its a smart move to involve the pub-

lic everyone from those who want to


cut taxes to the bone to those who
would like to see expanded services.
When the public is invited in, they
not only see the difficult choices leaders have to make, but they also feel like
they have a voice. Leaders are listening
to them. Their input is valued. While
not everyone will be happy with every
decision, at least there is a sense of inclusion and ownership of the
process.
We encourage everyone to get involved with their local budget processes this year. In most instances, there
will be hearings. Items will be posted
online.
Its easy to offer your suggestions to
the people who eventually will make
the final decision.
And, chances are, your feedback will
be appreciated.

In 2014, the Camden County Freeholder


Board
crafted an ambitious roadmap to
create a sustainable
infrastructure and
save
taxpayers
money. This multifaceted plan was created
from
the
principles of conservation, efficiency and building stability in our
operations. The Board focused on a
variety of ways to implement new
green practices that will be beneficial today and improve our quality
of life in the future.
Practices such as water conservation, energy efficiency, waste reduction, vehicle fleet management,
green purchasing, green building
design and investments in innovative technologies, such as renewable energy generation, are all part
of the Countys sustainability plan.
Next month, new LED lights will
begin to be installed on Camden
County roads and facilities. The
Freeholder Board entered into a
pilot program with Atlantic City
Electric to convert 84 existing street
light fixtures to LED lighting, reducing operating costs and increasing the longevity of the lighting.
Two Camden County facilities, the
South County Regional Branch of
the Library System in Winslow
Township and the Camden County
Department of Public Works and
Communications Center Campus
in Lindenwold, will also receive the
LED lighting upgrade.
We are confident that converting
to LED lighting will be beneficial to
municipalities too. That is why we
we worked with the Camden
County Improvement Authority to
provide the financing they need to
follow our lead in this initiative.
The Camden County Municipal
Utility Authority (CCMUA) is on
course to be carbon neutral, meaning they will not buy or use outside
energy. This will be accomplished
by utilizing a combination of re-

newable energy sources


and new efficiencies to
reduce or eliminate operational costs. Some of
the more notable upgrades are installing a
2-Megawatt solar system and creating energy
through
wastewater.
The Camden County
Parks Department and Environmental Center was the first building to be certified as a Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building in our region.
Some of the more notable characteristics include a green roof, renewable energy sources, waterless
urinals and recycled material used
to build the structure.
The Freeholder Board has integrated geothermal heating at the
CCMUA, Camden County College
and the Camden County Boathouse.
This process allows buildings to
draw heat from under the earth instead of relying on internal heating
and cooling operations.
The Camden County Technical
School completed an energy efficiency program through the state to
save more than $3 million over the
next 15 years for the campus. These
savings will be maximized by upgrading and investing into a variety
of different operations at both
Pennsauken and Gloucester Township campuses.
As you can see, weve made significant advances within our infrastructure of our public buildings to
lead the way in reducing energy
usage.

Piermatti wins Private Practice Award


Dr. Jack Piermatti, who has
performed more than 17,000 dental implants in his 35-year career,
has won the Private Practice
Award from the American College of Prosthodontists. The
recognition is given to the practitioner in each of five U.S. regions
whose contributions to the spe-

cialty or to the college are outstanding and substantial.


Piermatti, managing director
of Dental Arts of South Jersey in
Voorhees and the New Jersey
Center for Implant Dentistry, received the Private Practice Award
for the Northeast Region. He and
four of his peers were honored
earlier this month during the 44th
Annual Session of the ACP in
New Orleans. According to the
organization, it is a lifetime
award and can be earned just
once.
To be recognized by your
peers is a great honor, Piermatti
said. Our practices goal is always to be on the cutting edge of
prosthodontics, in service to both
the specialty itself and the community.
Piermatti is an associate pro-

fessor
of
prosthodontics at Rutgers
University
School of Dental Medicine,
where he also
is the director
of the Dental
Implant Maxicourse. He is
PIERMATTI
vice-president
and board examiner for the
American Board of Oral Implantology, and is one of fewer than 20
practitioners worldwide to be
double board-certified as a diplomat of both the ABOI and the
American Board of Prosthodontics. He is a fellow of the International College of Dentists and the
American Academy of Implant
Dentistry.

Event raises funds for homeless pets


EVENT
Continued from page 3
receiving a chip timing and event
t-shirt with their fee.
According to AWA events and
business
relations
manager
Maria Clarke, the AWA placed
more than 2,600 adopted pets in
their forever homes in 2014, and
the only way the AWA can beat
that number this year is through
the continued support of the public.
We want to help more animals
this year, and we need funds to do
that, Clarke said. Were hoping
people will come out on May 16,
support AWA and raise money for
homeless pets.
Clarke also said that this year
there will be no registration fee to
participate in the walk, but walkers must donate or fundraise a
minimum of $40 to participate
and receive an event t-shirt, dog-

gie bandana and goody bag.


Those who cant attend the
event but still want to help can
also donate or fundraise a minimum of $40 and receive the same
items.
Those who register to participate in the race or walk can do so
as individuals or join as a team,
with prizes to be awarded to the
individuals and teams who raise
the most money.
After the racers and walkers
have finished getting their exercise, Clarke said the Doggie
Fun Day portion of the day begins.
According to Clarke, the day
will have activities for both people and their dogs, including pet
contests, an agility course, pet
demonstrations, live music, food,
activities and games for the entire family.
Clarke said last year the event
had more than 100 vendors, a
super fetch area, contests such as
a tennis ball lottery, a canine cannon tennis ball launch, canine

candy land and even a place


where the dogs could play musical sit.
We always have demonstrations as well, Clarke said. Last
year we had the Jersey Disc Devils and their canine athletes put
on an amazing performance. We
had police working dogs demonstrations by local K9 units and
also search and rescue dogs.
Clarke said theres always so
much to do with Paws & Feet, and
as the AWA works to secure all
the entertainment for the day, the
organization hopes the public
will start fundraising so everyone
can come out and have a good
time.
The fundraising is critical,
Clarke said. We really do need to
raise the funds and theres plenty
of time to do it. If people start
now, theyll reach and exceed
their goal.
Those interested in registering
for the 2015 Paws & Feet 5K race
and
walk

Addiction website aims


to help public in fight
against opiate addiction
The Camden County Freeholder Board and the Addiction
Awareness Task Force have created a website aimed at assisting
the public with the fight against
opiate addiction.
The website, www.addictions.
camdencounty.com, helps to educate residents on the resources
available to prevent and treat addiction. Additionally, the site provides a downloadable addiction
prevention toolkit for community
partners such as schools and
civic organizations to utilize in
their own prevention programs.
The task force is made up of
students,
parents,
teachers,
health-care providers, law enforcement and civic leaders. The
mission of the task force is to increase awareness among county
residents of heroin and prescription drug abuse and the devastating effects addiction has on our
community. In addition to raising
awareness, the initial goals of the
task force include supporting programs that further reduce demand, including the expansion of
prescription drop boxes, working
with health-care providers to implement educational programs,
and creating and advocating for
increased treatment options.
Earlier this year, the task force
hosted a community summit with

a turnout of more than 700 residents, many of whom were desperate to help their loved ones,
but also residents who wanted to
get involved in helping to address
the problem in their community.
At that event, the county
launched an awareness campaign
entitled: HEROIN. PILLS. IT
ALL KILLSwhat you thought
was miles away is right in your
backyard.
The campaign includes billboards, awareness events, online
and print advertising.
Other initiatives the task force
is working on include the following: expansion of RX drop boxes
and prescription take back programs; community awareness
events; partnering with educators
on the development of evidencebased prevention programs; the
launching of a billboard campaign to educate loved ones of the
availability of the life-saving
overdose reversal drug Naloxone;
advocacy of policies that increase
access to treatment; and development of treatment integration
into Naloxone overdose reversals
at area emergency rooms.
If a member of the public or a
loved one needs help, call the 24/7
toll-free confidential hotline at
(877) 266-8222 or call 911 in the
event of an emergency.

Show hits the stage Feb. 21


at Kresson Elementary
SHOW
Continued from page 1
pened backstage, and its actually
a lot of work, Schmidt said. Its
fun, its something different.
Frantz also described how
working with people her own age
makes the production a more collaborative process, as the performers are more willing to make
and take suggestions.
Its nice to see that the actors
care enough to want to make a
change, and the back and forth
between us, were very open to
suggestions and usually we take
them, she said.
Just one of the those performers affected by an on-the-fly
change in the script is 15-year-old
Danya Trommer of Cherry Hill,
who plays Mrs. Tarragon, the pilladdicted wife of a senator.
Trommer was originally set to
interact with a particular character in one of the endings, but because of another performers suggestion, that character she would
have interacted with will now be
dead.
She said it can be a bit chaotic
sometimes to practice like that,
but it also adds to the fun of the
experience because, while there
can be a lack of focus, the group
always pulls things together.
It feels like we can definitely
get our ideas out there more because were not intimidated by
our directors and stuff because it
feels more like a group of friends
than they are our supreme leaders, Trommer said. We do have
free rein more and we can definitely suggest more things.

Ryan Connelly, 17 of Voorhees,


who has the role of Professor
Beasly, said he thought it was
awesome that a group of people
entirely his age have the ability to
do something of the shows caliber, and agreed that feeling free
to give so much input to his castmates and directors definitely
added to the experience.
Most directors I work with
dont particularly like that feedback that we give them, so having
two great directors like Alexis
and Emily, who really want you to
give them your own kind of advice, is wonderful, he said.
Schmidt and Frantz said the
cooperative attitude of their cast,
like Connellys, is just one of the
reasons why they think the show
will impress.
I say come because it shows
how the youth care about the organization and how theater is still
alive, Schmidt said.
