Chatham’s Bud Jackson Squadron to Help with 2015 Spring Clean-Up



On May 2, the Bud Jackson Composite Squadron, a local unity of the Civil Air Patrol, will participate in the third annual Community Wide Chatham Spring Cleanup.

The squadron recently moved its headquarters to a new facility at Chatham High School, and is searching for ways to get involved in the community. It works in honor of its founder, Captain Bud Jackson, a veteran whose life’s work was to volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol. As a young boy in Atlantic City, Captain Jackson watched many heroic Civil Air Patrol pilots fly off on U-Boat reconnaissance missions during World War II. These early experiences sparked his passion for flying. He befriended many of these pilots, and soon served as a naval aviator during the post-Korean war era. Many of his missions involved his flying along the east coast of Russia with some of the latest spy tools.

After his Navy days, Dr. Jackson became Captain “Bud” Jackson in the mid01970’s, a search and rescue pilot for the former Linden Squadron.   Ever since, the squadron has been home to many dedicated and valiant cadets.   Many have gone on to seve in the military or to study in the country’s top universities.

The squadron is especially valuable for teenagers interested in CAP’s STEM programs, such as Aerospace Education, Emergency Services, and Leadership. Cadets build their resumes through orientation flights, leadership development, squadron activities, and community service.

According to a press release, Squadron Commander, Captain Mary Romany says, “serving the community is a big part of who we are.” Captain Romany stated “we want and we need to become ever more involved locally as we grow our cadet programs.” Romany added “assisting the Spring Clean Advisory Committee provides our members with an excellent opportunity to give back and to fulfill one of our core missions.”

The squadron meets on Tuesday nights, from 6:50-9 p.m., at Chatham High School, Classroom L10. There is no military obligation associated with membership and it is not necessary to have a military or aviation background.

For more information on joining the May 2nd Spring Cleanup, an event  seeking volunteers of all ages and time commitments, contact Janice R. Piccolo 973-635-0674 x200

Be one of the first 200 willing to help cleanup and registered to get your free t-shirt designed through a Chatham youth contest.

‘Coffee With a Cop’ Program to Launch in South Orange


Come have coffee with a local cop! ‘Coffee with a Cop’ is a new program that has gained popularity all over the nation. With 175 towns in 36 participating states, the program’s goal is to secure the community’s trust in the police force, maintain police legitimacy, and forge partnerships between the force and the residents it protects. Now the program is coming to South Orange.

Community relations Officer Sgt. Adrian Acevedo and South Orange’s Board of Trustee member Sheena Collum, who is running for Village President in May, are spearheading the program in the area.

“The purpose of the program is to build stronger relationships between law enforcement and the community.  We saw this as an informal way for residents to get to know our officers and build stronger ties with them,” said Collum in a press release. “Hopefully this program does that and the people who attend the coffees become more involved with their local Neighborhood Watch and are more inclined to call the police and see them as a partner in public safety and not just the enforcement agency.”

With the intention to strengthen the relationship and trust between community members and the local police force, ‘Coffee with a Cop’ gives residents a chance to learn how to get to know the human faces behind law enforcement. After the recent violent events between citizens and cops throughout the nation, from Staten Island to Ferguson, MO, Collum feels the need for this program is more pressing than ever.

“I think as a community it made us realize how important the relationship with law enforcement is,” Collum said. “The Board of Trustees recognized the work of our local police department in creating the type of community we have today, but we also recognized that the work is never done and that’s when we sat down with our Police Chief Jim Chelel and Sergeant Acevedo to discuss opportunities for us to add on more programming and initiatives.

“The actual program came from Sergeant Acevedo, as he had seen similar programs in other towns be successful.  The Board of Trustees agreed to be partners in starting this program and provide whatever resources to ensure its success.”

Acevedo said, “The officers sometimes they feel intimidated by interacting with people like that, its because for the most part folks understand us to be kind of detached from interacting with people on a personal level. When people look at us or when they interact with us they look at us as not ‘regular people’….It can be a little intimidating to open up to people like that because we are so used to people thinking that all we are is a guy in a black and white car that’s going to come and be the law.”

Acevedo hopes that the program will help to humanize cops to residents, and vice versa. People have been conditioned to perceive cops as enemies, and he hopes “Coffee with a Cop’ will change their perceptions. “I think it’s going to be well received by the officers when they actually get a chance to sit down and speak to someone and know that that person they are speaking with is not going to be yelling at them or in a compromised situation…now we are going to interact with people on a regular level; sit down like two regular people,” said Acevedo.

“Announcements of upcoming events will be detailed in the next couple weeks, we have the Village’s Public Safety Committee meeting on March 24 where we’ll be finalizing details,” said Collum. “We plan on doing these (Coffee with a Cop) meetings quarterly, and they will augment the other meetings that Neighborhood Watch runs throughout the town.”

Essex County Parks Receive Excellence Awards




On March 10 in Atlantic City, the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs won four awards of excellence at the annual New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association convention.

The Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex was awarded “Best Recreation Complex in New Jersey.” In addition, the Cherry Blossom Festival Brochure received an Excellence in Brochure Award, the Historic Holiday House Tour received an Excellence in Programming Award and the Branch Brook Park Alliance’s Barbara Bell Coleman was recognized with an Excellence in Volunteering Award.

Barbara Bell Coleman, one of the founding members of the grassroots Branch Brook Park Alliance, worked with Essex County to improve Essex County Branch Brook Park. Together, they raised over $50 million to pay for the engineering and architectural costs from the improvement projects, which included modernizing the recreation facilities, preserving historic features, revitalizing landscaping and stabilizing the park’s waterway.   The County financially supported the construction costs.

In April, Branch Brook Park will celebrate the Annual Essex County Cherry Blossom Festival. The award-winning Cherry Blossom brochure lists all kinds of exciting events that will occur while these beautiful trees are in bloom. The two-week festival inclues bicycle races, a 10k run, Children’s 1-mile Fun Run, Family Day Festival and Bloomfest, and a one-day community event that highlights Japanese culture and community organizations.

Branch Brook is not the only Park that has been enhanced in the past year – the Essex County South Mountain Recreation Complex has recently added several new attractions. These include the Orange Resevoir, a 19-hole mini-gold course, McLoone’s Boathouse Restaurant, a 1.7-mile walkway around the Reservoir, the Clipper Picnic Pavilion and Regatta Children’s Playground.

The Essex County Historic Holiday House Tour is also worth a visit with friends and family. Established in 2008, the tour has expanded to include 17 historic sites throughout Essex County. The tours are self-guided and occur on one weekend in winter when the houses are decorated for the holiday season. Each site offers something special, such as musical entertainment, snacks or educational programs, and provides a real look into the county’s history.


Millburn Education Foundation Grant to Fund Girls Coding Class


The Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills was awarded a grant to fund “Girls Coding with Girls,” a two-semester course at Millburn Middle School that will offer female students an introduction to coding through the use of JAVA.

Dr. Christine Burton, Interim Superintendent of Schools, says, “We thank the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills, as always, for their support of our schools, and to Dun and Bradstreet Credibility Corp. for their generous donation and ongoing funding of our iSTEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs.”

Throughout the course, students will learn how to create games and smart phone apps, as well as the basics of web design. The second semester of the program will focus on Arduino, an open-source computer hardware and software that will teach students how to work with electronic circuitry.

Les Greenberg, a robotics teacher at the school, expressed his enthusiasm for the new program, and expects to be teaching it to 20 -24 students at the middle school this coming year. “I’m in the throes of writing the curriculum for it, and then we’ll launch it. I get tons of email from parents asking, ‘When are we going to teach coding and the middle school?’ And now we are going to teach coding at the middle school.”

One of the aims of the course is to encourage girls to feel more comfortable and confident working with code and within the male-dominated tech field.

“It will be girls coding with girls, plus one guy – me,” he said.
