    INSIDE THIS ISSUE Cemetery idea laid to rest

    The township will not purchase Park View Cemetery. PAGE 5

    By SEAN LAJOIE The Sun

    With 133 projects on display in- volving 265 students, the St. Mary of the Lakes School Science Fair was certainly a unique one.

    The entire event is voluntary participation and fully funded and run by parents and local busi- nesses.

    “We don’t mandate. We let the kids do it if they want to, and it has become our biggest event of  the year, which is pretty amazing for something that is completely academic,” coordinator Kim Mar- tin said.

    She has been in charge of this event since her son Billy was a part of it in sixth grade. He is now a junior at Saint Augustine Prep.

    Martin is assisted by Cathy Closson, as they are in charge of  raising the $3,500 needed each year to make this event what it

    has become. “Cathy and I are more in tune

    with the science aspect of the event, so making it come together financially is the biggest obstacle, because we don’t really have a particularly big donor,” Martin said.

    However, the parents played a big role this year in making the fair run smoothly. Many of them came in the day before to help set

    up the gym and turn it into the science wonderland it became last Tuesday night.

    The day prior to the fair was big for setting things up and let- ting the kids get a firsthand look

    at the work their classmates had been doing.

    “It is kind of like being in a pa- rade, when you’re stuck in it you don’t really get to see what is around you, so we open it up for

    the whole day, and each class gets to come down and admire the work before the place gets too crowded,” Martin said.

    Certain classes get extra credit grades for this and it also helps

    the kids get ideas for next year. This event is one that takes

    place each year in the spring, but it really gets going in January.

    “I get the whole event kicked off by giving a presentation at lunch, and then I send out some ideas and websites to get the kids revved up. Some of the students that are very into it start brain- storming their ideas as early as September,” Martin said.

    The ideas were particularly creative this year. There was a home-built radio by Kylie Grif- fith, green screen technology by the Campanaro brothers, and even the extraction of DNA from a strawberry by Kathryn Sebat- ian.

    Not only did Gabriella Leonti create an informative project on which brand of gum enables the largest bubble, she also raised money for a friend in need.

    “I’m selling pieces of bubble gum for 25 cents, and all the

    money I raise will go to Stephanie Bader (who has cancer) and my mom will be making a Shutterfly for her with all the pictures that we take,” Gabriella said.

    All the kids shared some of  their favorite parts of the project and some of the biggest obstacles they had to overcome throughout the process of making it.


    Gabriella Leonti made a fun science project about which brand of gum creates the largest bubble and raised money for her friend Stephanie Bader’s cancer fight along the way. For more photos, please see page 17.

    The president of the Medford Cemetery Association notified Medford officials on April 16 that the association has withdrawn its offer to the township to purchase Park View Cemetery at Kirby’s Mill and Park View Cemetery at Historic Medford Village.

    A town council meeting was held on April 21 at which the mat- ter was a topic of discussion.

    “It was a relatively quiet meet- ing. A handful of people came up

    and commented that had spoken at previous meetings who were pleased by this outcome and a few people thanked us for our ef- forts,” Deputy Mayor Jeffrey Beenstock said.

    The township released a state- ment saying it received and ac- cepted the notice from the MCA.

    “The Medford Township Coun- cil has accepted this notice and

    expressed its appreciation to the Medford Cemetery Association for its willingness to explore the feasibility of working with the township on a unique investment

    opportunity which was expected to benefit all concerned,“ the statement read.

    In the notice to the township, the association stated it would be withdrawing its offer and termi- nating its original letter of intent.

    “Medford Cemetery Associa- tion, Inc. has concluded, after careful consideration, that the false information, negative state-

    ments and misrepresentations that have appeared in newspapers and socia
