Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.
- PATCH'S HOUSE & HOME
Here at Patch, we like to be thrifty, so we talked to two barbecue experts and uncovered some really good ideas to help you save money on your next outdoor party. 1. Start with a marinade. This means planning ahead—say, Friday. But it’s worth it, says Rick Browne, host of Barbecue America on PBS, because you can pass up that well-marbled rib eye steak and buy a less tender and less expensive choice to grill like a flank steak or chuck steak. Just marinate it or brine for one or two days and then cook long and slow on the barbecue grill to break down tissues but maintain moisture. “You need to include an acid in the marinade, perhaps juice, vinegar or soy sauce, but avoid cola which is so acidic it can turn meat into a soggy mess.” Try …

Two students joined the Cum Laude Society.
Two Haddonfield students were among 13 at Moorestown Friends School inducted recently into the Cum Laude Society, a national honor society for academically challenging independent schools. Aviana Duca and Sarah Master join Joseph Kiernan in the society. Keirnan, of Haddonfield, was inducted last year. Students are selected for membership based on their cumulative record of academic excellence in all subject areas. No more than 20 percent of a school’s senior class may be selected, with no more than 10 percent chosen during their junior year. Moorestown Friends School received its Cum Laude charter in 1962.

Jeff Kasko, John Moscatelli and Neal Rochford took just a few minutes to savor their swearing in Tuesday, as issues of the sewage spill fall out, taxes and a changing police force loom large.
Updated at 8:05 p.m. May 21 In a quick ceremony that started with an oath and ended with a sweet treat, Haddonfield's three commissioners took their seats as the borough's governing body and immediately got to work. Jeff Kasko, Neal Rochford and John Moscatelli took the oath of office at noon Tuesday in an unofficial gathering that nonetheless drew a crowd of onlookers at Municipal Hall. By state statute, the three had to be sworn in no later than a week after the election. The borough plans an additional ceremony on May 28. As expected, Kasko was named mayor. Haddonfield traditionally chooses its mayor by who garnered the most votes in the election. Moscatelli, with the second highest vote total, was sworn in as deputy mayor. Kasko will …
The tornado ripped through Moore, OK, a half a country away. But South Jerseyans can still help. Donating money to organizations that help victims is quick and easy.
Americans across the country are reacting with shock to the devastation caused by a 2-mile-wide tornado in Oklahoma. Dozens have died, and President Obama has declared the path of the tornado a major disaster area. If you would like to help, you can do so from your computer or mobile device right now. Although the inclination to donate clothes and other goods is strong when people have lost everything, staff in a major disaster area often lack the manpower to sort through the donations. Money directed to disaster funds can have a more immediate, effective impact. Red Cross Donate money to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund or text REDCROSS to 90999 to automatically donate $10, which will be added to your cell phone bill. Salvation Army The…
Advocates of two new artificial turf fields at the high school celebrate a hard-fought victory.
Hundreds of youth and high school athletes and their parents turned out for the groundbreaking of a new artificial turf field project at Haddonfield Memorial High School. About $600,000 of the just under $1 million cost for the fields was paid for with private donations. Still, the debate over less than $400,000 in borough and school board funds for the fields became a wedge issue in the Board of Commissioners election last week. Incumbent Commissioner Ed Borden was defeated for a third term, in part, some voters said, because of his support for the turf-field project. Borden attended the groundbreaking Monday, as did two newly elected commissioners, John Moscatelli and Neal Rochford, and reelected Commissioner Jeff Kasko. Moscatelli …

Before the swearing in ceremony Tuesday, two new commissioners and a re-elected incumbent met for a trial run.
At first meeting of newly elected commissioners on Monday evening, the group made a decision that will surprise very few—Jeff Kasko will be the new mayor of Haddonfield. Kasko assumes the mayor's seat after a 12-year mayoral stretch for Tish Colombi, who didn't run for re-election. Monday's work session was the first meeting of Haddonfield's election victors. Two of the participants, John Moscatelli and Neal Rochford, were so new to the proceedings that they hadn’t even been sworn in yet. All three commissioners will officially be sworn in Tuesday at noon in a brief ceremony at the Municipal Hall. Monday’s meeting was a work session, which typically does not include formal votes on resolutions or ordinances, but does feature discussion on …
