    Shawnee High School’s Ryan Ross defeated Lenape High School’s Mike Krosnodomski in the 160- pound class, 5-1. The Shawnee wrestling team made the short trip to Lenape last week to take on its rivals in a battle of two top squads in the region. The Renegades got off to a hot start but were not able to ride the momentum to a victory. They lost a close one, 36-30, lowering their record to 8-3.

    “Students are able to accom- plish amazing things when given the resources,” Michael Condur- so, department coordinator for the technology education depart- ment at Lenape High School, said.

    Condurso teaches the first-year course of the Project Lead the Way program, an introduction to engineering design at Lenape.

    His PLTW group just recently received 3-D printers through a $7,500 grant awarded by BAE Sys- tems Inc. The printers will ex- pand the resources available to students and give them the oppor- tunity to visualize the concepts they are learning.

    “Students are now able to expe- rience what they learn, rather than just hear about it or watch a video on it,” Condurso said. “I feel it promotes a deeper under- standing of concepts and really engages students.”

    “We are looking forward to a partnership with BAE Systems in

    which their engineers can serve as guest speakers and sounding boards for our students working on capstone projects,” said Heather Xenakis, Lenape Region- al High School District director of  curriculum and instruction. “This type of relationship is ben- eficial to our students who choose to continue on a STEM-related ca-

    A discussion item that was first introduced at a Medford

    Town Council meeting on Dec. 15 resurfaced on Jan. 19.

    Headwater Village residents have been attempting to put to- gether a donation campaign to re- ceive recreational items. They are looking to add things such as park benches, basketball hoops, swing sets and streetlights to their community. The Great Bridge and the Wakefield Drive areas in their development both play host to tennis courts, a base- ball field, bonfires and walking

    paths the residents feel need to be renovated.

    The village wants the township to take the reins of this campaign in hopes that it encourages people to donate recreational facilities.

    Headwater Village is a nonprof- it homeowners association, but it is not tax exempt, so it can’t offer a tax deduction to do a fundraiser to buy a park bench or a picnic table, for example.

    However, if the township were to do it, it could offer that deduc- tion, and people would be more likely to donate.

    Several suggestions derived from this idea included whether Medford could take the improve- ments made by the township and transfer them to the homeowners association. Council also kicked around the idea of a citizen do- nating to the township for a park bench so they could get a tax de- duction, because the township is

    a nonprofit and it would be for public use.

    However, the main concern that seemed to deter the council from moving forward was the idea of maintaining these posses- sions.

    “My concern is ultimately it’s going to come back on the town- ship to maintain all of this,”
