    2. Nicole Ney, 20 Lives in Newfield and works at Wawa in Hammonton, Parvin State Park

    3. There’s a bicycle shop in Pitman and what makes it interesting and newsworthy is the fact that it doubles as a small coffee shop. The Caffeinated Cyclist is a unique concept for a business and I would explore how the idea came about and where the connection between bikes and coffee materialized. For the story, I would speak to owner Steve Blackman, other staff members, as well as various people frequenting the shop.

    In the past I visited the Cumberland County SPCA animal shelter in Vineland. What makes this shelter interesting and newsworthy is how much the staff goes above and beyond with making the animals’ lives as much brighter as they can. This is done with schedule events like photos with Santa as a heavy support from volunteers. I would talk to various employees and volunteers in order to capture just how important the shelters and the animals in it are to them and how anybody reading can help the cause.

    3.There is a video game truck called GameTruck located in Cherry Hill. They do birthday parties and charge up to $375. I would like to interview the owner and ask him about how he came up with this idea, do some research as to if there are any other mobile video game party setups in the area, and how long GameTruck has been in business.

    3. The Deptford Municipal building puts up a new art gallery every two months. I would like to do a story on what made them start doing this and how it has affected the community. Does it spark and interest for the people to be apart of more town events? How long has the building been allowing it? Do people walk in to the Municipal building and feel a warmer, welcoming place? This topic can lead to a few other story ideas as well.
    Jonas is in charge of the rotation and setting it up. It is also a one of a kind thing that other Municipals do not have. I would have easy access talking to Jonas. She was very interested in having Rowan student(s) speaking with her about the the topic.

    Hunting and fishing are a staple of life for many people in Cape May County, and the southern part of 47 is surrounded by marshes and waterways. I would like to follow along with some hunters and find out how they got started. I want to show what happens during a typical hunt, and see how the sport is changing.

    Staying old school in a modern world- Though booking travel on the Internet is very popular today, Bon Voyage Travel Agency has been standing strong since 1960. Located in Woodbury Heights, Bon Voyage proudly serves the Gloucester, Burlington and Camden counties. Its individual, personal service is the reason why Bon Voyage wins well-known awards, such as The Best of Gloucester County Travel Agent, every year. I plan on speaking with the owner and founder, Susan Shunk on how she manages to successfully stay in business for over 55 years and continues to win numerous awards. I also plan on speaking with her clients and employees.

    3. I noticed all along the way various abandoned establishments ranging from factories, businesses, churches, and homes. My mind would wander to the possible reasons why these places are no longer in use, many of which looked very rundown – like something out of a movie. Though the project pitch is a bit grandiose, I believe it be really interesting to put together a photo-story of all the places abandoned and try to inquire as to what was there, reasons for leaving, and how long it has been as so. Many of the locales I spotted had notices of evictions or other official documents which would make for good leads to contact the government entities that would hold information on the property. Old businesses should also have records with the city that should be able to be obtained and further researched based on the information on the accounts. Each place could have several photos with captions on the information or even make it into an interactive map that specifically shows you where each one is located.

    4. New Jersey Motorsports Park built a Motocross track in September, and the motocross season starts in March so there will be a lot of races to cover. It can bring people from all over the country since this will be their first year of full racing. I would interview the people that work at the track and also the racers that attend the events.

    The Clayton Historic Museum opened 10 years ago, shortly after the town of Clayton celebrated its centennial. It was decided that the town wanted to preserve its history by opening a museum. It has been filled almost entirely by historical contributions from members of the community, as well as members of the Clayton Historic Preservation who actively search for pieces of the town’s history. The museum holds a massive amount of local history and color, as well as present day Clayton history as it happens. What makes it interesting and newsworthy is the very history it holds, what motivated its creation and the passion for preserving the past the members who maintain it have for their town. It is an active project. Members are currently searching for one of a kind collection of glass bottles, each emblazoned with a different location from the area. For the story I would speak to Chairperson of the Clayton Historic Advisory Board Tom Perini and Vice Chairperson Joseph Salvatore.

    There’s a place called Jersey Shore Alpacas located in Cape May. The alpaca farm is run by donations from those who visit, however I would like to find out how they can live off of donations and how they cater to schoolchildren; on their website, it states that they have small lessons planned out for groups of small children such as Girl Scouts or home schooled children. The alpaca’s fur is also used to create yarn, I would like to find out if they sell the alpaca fur to local yarn stores around the area. I would talk to Jim and Tish Carpinelli, the owners of Jersey Shore Alpacas.

    -I found a store called Movie Man Video & Tan. Apparently this store specializes in movie rentals, game rentals, specialized music, and tanning. I think this is too bizarre not to do a story about. I haven’t been there yet, but I want to find out more about it. Just someone coming up with the idea for that store must be at least a slightly interesting story.

    As I took a visit to Brunswick Bowling alley, I heard bowling league tournament like games going on, and then looked on the website and found, this unusual bowling club. The “Lousy Bowlers” club is a bowling league from Brunswick Zone bowling alley located on Delsea Drive in Deptford.
    This league is strictly a league that is just for fun and not to necessarily win whose motto is “Can’t score, no worries.” It is a 12 weeks-just-for-fun club, with 3 games per week and 4 players per team. I thought this to be interesting because most bowlers bowl for fun, but have always bowled to win also.

    My first story idea was to do something on the punk shows that used to take place at the Franklinville VFW. Unfortunately, someone had rented it out for a Super Bowl party and nobody was available to talk. I’d still love to do the story (and go back on a better day). There were so many big bands that played there (The Early November, Hidden in Plain View, A Day to Remember, Houston Calls) and they stopped doing shows I think because kids were doing too much damage to the place. I used to play shows there like 10 years ago and know a lot of people that did. The memories I had pulling up there actually gave me chills.

    3. Diners. I’ve been to a lot of states and no state really owns a diner like New Jersey does, especially South Jersey. There was a handful of diners spotted on the drive (I only went as far as about the cusp of Vineland). Some might say been to one diner, been to them all, but that is debatable. Some diners are flat out nasty and you get what you pay for (or maybe not) and some diners are actually relatively decent. Maybe the best diners ( or food spots in general) along Delsea Drive could be a fun pick.

    The only drive-in movie theatre in South Jersey is located at 2203 S. Delsea Dr. in Vineland, NJ. It was first built in 1949, closed in 1987 and re-opened in 2004.

    The establishment is currently owned by Dr. John Deleonardis, a Pediatrician in Bridgeton. I thought covering the only piece of legacy where it all started for drive-in’s would be a great story. There is a rich history hailing from the Garden State, that a PBS series started in 2013, covering the uniqueness of New Jersey, points its lens at the Delsea Drive-In.

    1.Do you have a favorite place that is unique to South Jersey?

    Favorite place is the drive-in movie theater because that is the only one in south jersey. It is located on Delsea drive in Vineland New Jersey.

    2. Is there a South Jersey story/issue that you think students should cover this semester?

    An issue that South Jersey has is finding homes for abandoned animals. Local animal shelters lack the ability to reach the people in South Jersey on this important matter. Cats, dogs, and other critters are left with no home.

    Most important quote:

    “Prevention to stop teens from suicide definitely does not get enough media coverage. It is important to cover this issue to make people aware of what is going on so that it can be stopped before a life is taken away.”

    Story Ideas:

    There are over 7 places to volunteer on Delsea Drive including the Gloucester Volunteer center and a Mother/Child Residential program where people around the area can volunteer. Gathering stories about the people volunteering and being helped will provide an idea about the community around Delsea Drive. June Bretz is the director for the Gloucester Volunteer center and Eileen Henderson is the chief operating officer of the Center for Family Services, which provide care for mothers and children.
