Flu season is a doozy already this year.
With the flu hitting New Jersey and most of the country early and hard, Camden County has added two flu vaccination clinics to its schedule. Camden County residents can get free flu shots on Jan. 16 at Cherry Hill's Carmen Tilelli Community Center, at 820 Mercer St., and Jan. 18 at Gloucester Township Municipal Building. Shots will be offered at both locations from 9 a.m. to noon. “In order to keep your family healthy this flu season, we encourage you to take advantage of this beneficial service provided by Camden County,” Camden County Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the county Health Department, said. “We have scheduled additional flu shot sites because the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) continues to recommend …

Their media services company brings a local edge to digitizing photos, video and more.
When Jen and Rob Richman lost their mother to cancer three years ago, there was one thing they weren’t prepared for—trying to divide up decades’ worth of family photos. Their mother had amassed thousands of prints over the years—some were stored in albums, but others sat scattered across boxes and crates all over the family’s home. “It was so overwhelming,” Jen Richman said. After some deliberation, they decided to digitize those memories—solving the problems of organizing and dividing the pictures—but there weren’t many options, and all of them involved boxing up their memories and sending them off, usually across the country. Instead, they decided to expand Rob’s Cherry Hill-based business, R3 Consulting, invested in the equipment they’d…

An Erial man has been charged with committing eight robberies in seven South Jersey towns beween last Friday and Tuesday, when he was arrested in Cherry Hill.

“We need to call these people out,” Christie tells business leaders.
Editor's Note: This article was initially published Thursday evening on the brand new Cherry Hill Patch. It’s a shopping list on steroids. A million dollars for a grant program to put kitchens in licensed child care centers. Half a million bucks for summer enrichment programs for New Brunswick schools. Another half-million for the Yellow Dot program, which would help emergency workers find critical health care information at car accident scenes. Sixty-six million for payments in lieu of taxes to towns “overburdened by cemeteries.” Along with programs on responsible fatherhood, retirement community studies and 20 bills through committee but not yet passed, it amounts to a giant, unfunded pile of government spending, Gov. Chris Christie said…

The two-story blaze blew out windows at the Adventure Unlimited/Quantum Travel building and drew responders from neighboring towns.
A fire at a two-story Cherry Hill office building shut down traffic in the westbound lane of Route 70 around 10 p.m. Monday, as emergency responders from at least three towns cordoned off the area while they battled the flames. The building in question once housed the Adventure Unlimited/Quantum Travel agency; the property is believed to have been vacant at the time of the fire. No one was injured in the incident, said Cherry Hill Fire Marshal Tom Shemeley, and the cause of the fire was not immediately known. Property damage, however, was visible and significant. Smoke climbed into the August evening; the second-floor window frames of the building were blackened and the glass had been either shattered or knocked out in the extinguishment …

Detailing the abuses of classroom aides he says made his disabled son's school life "a living hell," Cherry Hill resident Stuart Chaifetz is taking his case public—with audio he captured secretly.
A Cherry Hill father who says his autistic son was tormented for at least six months by public-school special education teachers and support staff has taken his case viral with damning, covertly gathered audio of the classroom in which he says his son was abused. In a 17-minute video, titled "Teacher/Bully: How My Son Was Humiliated and Tormented by his Teacher and Aide," Stuart Chaifetz replays portions of audio he attributes to "Kelly" and "Jodi," whom he says are his son Akian's former special education and resource teachers. The video went viral last week, creating quite a media frenzy locally and across the country, and even resulted in a North Jersey man filing suit against the Cherry Hill school district on Akian's behalf. The …

What better weekend to call attention to a condition that endangers the lives of roughly one in 12 pregnant women and the babies they carry than Mother's Day weekend?
