Salute To The Great Cities Of The American Revolution As Seen In Transit Though Mercer County

July 4, 2020

ROBBINSVILLE, EAST WINDSOR, HAMILTON, NJ (MERCER)–If you were lucky enough to be outside this afternoon around 5:15 you would have seen a military fly over called “Salute To The Great Cities Of The American Revolution” en route from New York City to Philadelphia.

Trenton, NJ the home of the Crossroads of the American Revolution National Heritage Area where just north of there General George Washington crossed the Delaware on December 25, 1776 was not on the official list of the “Great Cities”

Still the region from the Monmouth Battlefield, extending though Cranbury, Hightstown, Robbinsville, Hamilton and turning at Trenton towards Philadelphia was still able to see the fly over even though it was not officially on the program.

Spectators were able to see a variety of aircraft from the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Marine Corps including: U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, followed by B-1, B-2 and B-52 bombers, F-15 and F-22 fighters and U.S. Marine Corps F-35 fighters in transit from New York City to Philadelphia.


Secretary Esper approved a Department of the Interior request for DOD support to the 2020 Salute to America. DOD will provide aerial, musical and ceremonial support to this year’s celebration in Washington, D.C. This year’s support will also include a flyover of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, as well an aerial salute to several cities that played roles in the American Revolution.
 
The highlight of this year’s celebration will be our salute to the Great Cities of the American Revolution. The flyovers will begin in Boston and proceed to New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore. From there they will join other Department of Defense and heritage aircraft in the Salute to America over our nation’s capital. In all, roughly 1,700 service members will support the celebrations.

The aircraft are scheduled to overfly each of the cities, beginning at approximately 4:00 pm, then fly on to the next city. U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps jets will fly over in five waves. The flyovers will be led by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, followed by B-1, B-2 and B-52 bombers, F-15 and F-22 fighters and U.S. Marine Corps F-35 fighters.  

BOSTON:  The aircraft are scheduled to overfly the center of the city at approximately 4:00 pm approaching from the northeast at 1,000 feet above the ground.  Multiple aircraft will overfly the U.S.S. Constitution and then proceed over Fenway Park before departing the city. 

NEW YORK:  The aircraft are scheduled to fly down the Hudson River at approximately 5:00 pm and pass just east of the Statue of Liberty.  

PHILADELPHIA:  The aircraft are scheduled to overfly the center of the city at approximately 5:15 pm approaching from the northeast at 1,000 feet above the ground.  Multiple aircraft will fly over Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell and then proceed southwest out of the city.

BALTIMORE: The aircraft are scheduled to overfly Fort McHenry at approximately 5:30 pm approaching from the northeast at 1,000 feet above the ground.  Multiple aircraft will overfly Fort McHenry before turning south out of the city.

The flyovers provide an opportunity for DOD to demonstrate the capabilities and professionalism of the United States Armed Forces. Flying hours are a sunk cost for the Department of Defense, and these aircraft and crews would be using these hours for proficiency and training at other locations if they were not conducting these flyovers.
 
DOD is proud to help celebrate the nation’s 244th birthday. We are grateful for our nation’s support as we defend our country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

HIGHTSTOWN, NJ (MERCER)—A Black Lives Matter protest was held in Highstown, NJ this afternoon. The march started at the Hightstown High School proceeded up Main Street to the center of town. Traffic was shut down for about ½ hour during the protest. Protesters voiced their concerns and talked with police.

One of the protesters said, “We are not here to hate, we are here to gather in love, we love you guys (the police) and want you to love us back. The color of our skin should not threaten anybody, we are all the same, we bleed the same, we are all humans, we are all the same. God made us all equal, it should not take this long for us to have equality. We are tired of being tired.”

Officers of the Hightstown Police Department were asked by protesters to “take a knee” in support and they did, shook hands, and hugged. The protesters then marched up Mercer Street back towards to the high school.

This was a peaceful protest and were no known reported incidents.

Ed note: I know a lot of the protesters from high school sports programs and also the police both sides great people.

Mosquito Spraying In Mercer County Today

April 22, 2020

See Mercer County DOT Notice Here

Aerial Mosquito Larviciding Notice 

When: (Wednesday) April 22, 2020, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. (weather permitting)

Mercer County Mosquito Control will be treating larval mosquito habitats throughout the county by way of helicopter. Due to their large size and inaccessibility by ground vehicles, these larval habitats are routinely treated with a helicopter when mosquitoes are present in the standing water. You may see our helicopter flying near residential areas, positioning the helicopter to approach nearby areas of standing water targeted for treatment.

***PLEASE NOTE***

THIS IS NOT an area-wide Adulticiding “MOSQUITO SPRAYING” activity. 

Aerial larviciding includes the use of target-specific, biorational granules only released directly above standing water to help prevent larval mosquitoes from developing into biting adult mosquitoes.

Adulticide applications (spraying) are conducted when biting adult mosquito populations exceed public health or nuisance thresholds. These applications are conducted via truck-mounted, ultra-low-volume (ULV) cold aerosol sprayers during late evening or early morning hours. Mercer County applies products (adulticides) recommended by Rutgers University  for mosquito control in New Jersey, and a complete list with accompanying labels and MSDS sheets can be found here. Specific street addresses are not published, but adulticide applications are conducted on an area-wide basis and targets where adult mosquito populations may be concentrated during application times. For further questions or information, please browse our website or call/email directly. The office maintains no regular “spraying schedule” or “spraying list.” These applications are only conducted when deemed absolutely necessary, and under the appropriate environmental conditions, in order to bring mosquito populations to tolerable levels or to ward off potential mosquito-borne disease outbreaks.

Neighboring Mercer County Municipalities and Greenhill Pharmacy Partner to Secure Medication for COVID-19 Positive Patients

April 2, 2020

ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (April 2, 2020) – Greenhill Pharmacy has partnered with East Windsor Township, Robbinsville Township and Hamilton Township to provide Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, in combination with the antibiotic Zithromax, to treat COVID-19 (coronavirus) positive patients throughout Mercer County at no cost beginning Friday, April 3, 2020.

The FDA issued an emergency-use authorization for this combination of drugs for treatment and mitigation of the impacts of COVID-19. In lockstep with Governor Phil Murphy’s order, only individuals who have tested positive according to the State’s guidelines and have a prescription from their doctor can obtain the course of treatment. Hydroxychloroquine must be …

1. Prescribed for the treatment of COVID-19
2. Supported by a positive test result AND documented on the hard copy prescription
3. Limited to a 14-day supply

The current supply will be allocated to local hospitals, residents of Mercer County (with or without insurance) and first-responders. Greenhill Pharmacy will coordinate contactless delivery via pharmacy staff or courier free to all patients. The prescription will be delivered via courier after prior arrangements are made with the patient and/or their caretaker. In order to best verify and expedite the process, your doctor should send the prescription to Greenhill Pharmacy electronically. The East Windsor-based pharmacy is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Doctors and hospitals can contact the pharmacy at info@wilmingtonrx.com

“Thank you to Greenhill Pharmacy for not only helping Robbinsville, Hamilton and East Windsor, but all of Mercer County as we push forward together through this crisis,” Mayor Dave Fried said. “We are doing everything we possibly can to minimize the damage in this war against a potent, invisible enemy.”

As of Wednesday, April 1, 2020 a total of 333 people had tested positive for COVID-19 in Mercer County, resulting in three deaths.

“We are extremely grateful to Greenhill Pharmacy in East Windsor, always a pro- active local caring company, which once again has stepped up as our partner in this vital effort to help our communities at this critical time,” East Windsor Mayor Janice Mironov said.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).

Mercer County opened the testing center at Quaker Bridge Mall in Lawrence Tuesday by appointment-only for symptomatic residents age 18 or older who have a prescription from their primary health care provider (PCP). If you are symptomatic for COVID-19 and wish to be tested, contact your PCP. If you are not symptomatic (i.e. fever 100.4 or greater and without a prescription) you likely will be turned away from the test site.

“On behalf of everyone in Hamilton, I want to thank Greenhill Pharmacy as well as East Windsor and Robbinsville Townships for their partnership in our joint effort to fight COVID-19 and help the residents in our extended communities,” Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin said.  

Mercer County COVID-19 Testing Site Opens Tuesday By Appointment Only

March 28, 2020

LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)– Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes today announced that the County, in collaboration with health care partners, will open an appointment-only, drive-up testing site for COVID-19 on Tuesday, March 31, at Quaker Bridge Mall in Lawrence

The testing center is by appointment only for symptomatic Mercer County residents age 18 or older who have a prescription from their primary health care provider (PCP). If you are symptomatic for COVID-19 and want to be tested, contact your PCP.

The testing center, which initially will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., is a collaborative effort between the County of Mercer, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton, Capital Health System, St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton and the Trenton Health Team.

“Testing for COVID-19 is necessary to identify and isolate people with infections,” said Mr. Hughes. “When it comes to setting up a testing site, we face the same challenges as do other jurisdictions, such as securing testing kits and the personal protective equipment for staff. I thank the County’s Office of Emergency Management, our health care partners, Quaker Bridge Mall management and the leadership at Lawrence Township for clearing the hurdles necessary to get this site online.”

Mercer County has contracted with Bio-Reference Laboratories, which will provide testing for individuals who are symptomatic and have been scheduled through their PCP.

To be eligible for testing, an individual must be examined by a PCP. The PCP will determine the need for the test based on symptoms. No one should be tested without being symptomatic. If the PCP deems a test is necessary, they will fax a prescription to the Mercer County call center with the patient’s phone number. Staff will then call the patient, take registration information and schedule an appointment, providing testing site instructions.

For the health, safety and security of staff at the site, patients will not be permitted to leave their vehicles. Walk-ups are not permitted. If you believe you may have symptoms of COVID-19, the State of New Jersey’s COVID-19 Information Hub provides a self-assessment tool that will help you determine whether you should be tested. Visit self.covid19.nj.gov.

Governor Murphy, Governor Cuomo, and Governor Lamont Announce Regional Approach to Combatting COVID-19

March 16, 2020

The three States will limit crowd capacity for recreational and social gatherings to 50 people – effective by 8 PM tonight 

Restaurants and bars will close for on premise service and move to take-out and delivery only effective 8 PM tonight

Movie theaters, gyms and casinos will temporarily close effective 8 PM tonight

Uniform approach to social distancing will slow spread of COVID-19 throughout the tri-state area

PRESS RELEASE FROM GOV. MURPHY’S OFFICE: TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)—Amid a lack of federal direction and nationwide standards, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont today announced a regional approach to combatting the novel coronavirus – or COVID-19 – throughout the tri-state area.

These uniform standards will limit crowd capacity for social and recreational gatherings to 50 people, effective 8 PM tonight. This follows updated guidance that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued yesterday recommending the cancellation or postponement of in-person events consisting of 50 people or more.

The three governors also announced restaurants and bars will close for on premise service and move to take-out and delivery services only. These establishments will be provided a waiver for carry-out alcohol. These measures will take effect at 8 PM tonight.

Finally, the three governors said they will temporarily close movie theaters, gyms and casinos, effective at 8 PM tonight. 

This uniform approach to social distancing is meant to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. 

Governor Murphy said, “With all we are seeing in our state – and across our nation and around the world – the time for us to take our strongest, and most direct, actions to date to slow the spread of coronavirus is now. I’ve said many times over the past several days that, in our state, we are going to get through this as one New Jersey family. But if we’re all in this together, we must work with our neighboring states to act together. The work against coronavirus isn’t just up to some of us, it’s up to all of us.”

“Our primary goal right now is to slow the spread of this virus so that the wave of new infections doesn’t crash our healthcare system, and everyone agrees social distancing is the best way to do that,” Governor Cuomo said. “This is not a war that can be won alone, which is why New York is partnering with our neighboring states to implement a uniform standard that not only keeps our people safe but also prevents ‘state shopping’ where residents of one state travel to another and vice versa. I have called on the federal government to implement nationwide protocols but in their absence we are taking this on ourselves.”

Governor Lamont said, “The only way to effectively fight the spread of COVID-19 is by working together as states. We have shared interests, and a patchwork of closures and restrictions is not the best way forward. I know that because of this collaboration, we will save lives.” 

East Windsor Regional Schools Remote Learning Plan Starts March 17

March 14, 2020

EAST WINDSOR, NJ (MERCER)–After careful consultation with our local health officials, local government, and the NJDOE, we are announcing that the East Windsor Regional School District will begin to implement its remote learning plan beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We expect this plan to be in effect through Sunday, March 29, 2020. Please read the update from Mark Daniels, Superintendent of Schools

Down load original letter here:
EAST WINDSOR REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT
Mark Daniels Superintendent

March 13, 2020

Dear East Windsor Regional School District Community:

After careful consultation with our local health officials, local government, and the NJDOE, we are
announcing the East Windsor Regional School District will begin to implement its remote learning
plan beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We expect this plan to be in effect through
Sunday, March 29, 2020. During this time period, students will engage in learning activities while
at home, and receive virtual support from their teachers. During this two week period, we will
assess the continued implementation of remote learning based on the guidance from our public health
officials and will communicate any necessary changes or updates. Although we do not have a
known confirmed case in the East Windsor Regional School District at this time, I do not want to
wait until one is identified and it becomes too late to limit the spread of this
highly contagious virus. This is being implemented as a precautionary and proactive approach to
reduce the risk for our students, staff and families.

As you know, on Monday, March 16, students are already planned to follow an early
dismissal schedule. We ask that students be prepared to bring home at the end of the day any
materials they may need to engage in remote instruction, including musical instruments,
textbooks, technology, reading materials, other relevant supplies.

As a district, we have worked diligently during the last few weeks to prepare for this possibility.
Our remote learning plan consists of a combination of on-line learning opportunities, combined
with a series of traditional learning activities consisting of books,
instructional packets, supplementary handouts, and other relevant resources. Teachers will be
accessible to students and parents during remote learning to answer questions, and to provide
guidance and support. It is important to clarify that remote learning does not mean that our
district will be completely closed. Our buildings will be operational and staff members will be
present to answer questions and offer support.

As previously mentioned, the following buildings will be open for students to access breakfast and
lunch (8:00-12:00): EMK, PLO, GNR, MHK, and HHS. Students can select the building that is
closest to their residence for breakfast/lunch. These food items will only be grab and go.

During the two week remote learning time period, all district activities and athletic
events (including practices) will be postponed or cancelled. This includes facility use, events,
and rental activities.

We will continue to provide timely updates throughout the upcoming remote learning
period. Please feel free to contact your school by phone or email for further questions or concerns
once our remote learning plan starts. Continue to check the district’s website for ongoing
updates http://www.ewrsd.org.

I recognize this is a unique and difficult time, but I am confident that as a school community, we
can overcome the challenges ahead. I would like to express my deep appreciation to the entire
school community for its continued flexibility, understanding, and support.

Sincerely,

Mark Daniels

Superintendent of Schools

March 13, 2020

By: Dennis Symons, Jr.

ROBBINSVILLE, NJ (MERCER)—The 2020 Census count is underway and I received my invitation by mail today. As per the instructions I logged onto My2020census.gov and entered my code Census ID Code. There were some very basic questions of who was living in the home and birthdays. It was one of the easiest census forms I have ever completed and took less than two minutes to complete from start to finish, even though it says it could take an average of 10 minutes to complete.

The Census is counted every 10 years and many things from voting districts, financial aid, Federal, State and Local government services and more use this government data. A response is required by law and should be very easy to complete if you have received the invitation from United States Census Bureau.

Frequently asked questions of the Census Bureau:

  1. What is the 2020 Census?The goal of the census is to count every person living in the United States, once, only once and in the right place.
