    She is the 2017 Gloucester County recipient of the award.

    VOORHEES -- Barbara McCormick, MSN, RN, a Jefferson Health New Jersey Specialty Care Transport (SCT) Nurse Coordinator for STAT Medical Transport, was honored with a 2017 Women of Achievement award by the Garden State Council -Boy Scouts of America (BSA).

    The award is presented annually to outstanding women in business from the six counties served by the Garden State Council in southern New Jersey. McCormick is 2017's Gloucester County recipient.

    McCormick, a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, has worked at Jefferson Health New Jersey (previously Kennedy Health) for more than 20 years. As the SCT Nurse Coordinator, she leads her SCT Teams to be collaborative in a high-stress environment - ensuring continuity of care for patients that need advanced medical care during inter-hospital transport. McCormick gained her transport experience in the U.S. Air Force, where she was deployed as a Critical Care Air Transport Team Nurse in Afghanistan.

    A Turnersville resident, McCormick is a Life Support Education instructor at Jefferson Health New Jersey and also a clinical instructor at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital for Rutgers University - Camden's Accelerated BSN program.

    This is the sixth year "Women of Achievement" awards have been presented, and the fourth since the merger of councils and the creation of the Garden State Council, which administers the Boy Scouts of America program in South Jersey. The council is chartered by the National Council, BSA, and provides program and administrative support for the scouts and units within the council territory. The Garden State Council is one of the largest youth-serving organizations in South Jersey.

    The building will be shared by Rutgers-Camden, Rowan University and Camden County College and contain labs and classrooms.

    CAMDEN -- Until it was cleared out in summer 2016, one side of this stretch of Broadway leading up to Martin Luther King Boulevard contained shops selling shoes and clothes, along with a nail salon. Health and education buildings towered over them.

    Now, construction is slated to begin on a $70 million extension of the "eds and meds" in Camden; the Joint Health Sciences Center, to be shared by Rutgers-Camden, Rowan University and Camden County College.

    The leaders of these educational institutions, Gov. Chris Christie and U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, as well as several Camden city and county officials, gathered at the construction site along Broadway on Thursday to talk about the building and the city. Camden is counting on educational and medical institutions to create jobs for residents and to make the city a more desirable place to live. Already, 33 percent of the jobs in Camden are in health or education, according to a report provided by the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors.

    "We want to invest in the education New Jersey students can get and make sure the brain drain doesn't kill us, but in fact is reversed, and we keep people here," Christie told the crowd. He spoke after pulling up in a black Chevrolet Suburban and posing for pictures while shoveling some dirt at the groundbreaking.

    (After being introduced as "your governor, for a few more months, anyway," Christie took the microphone and quipped: "89 days, not that I'm counting or anything.")

    The four-story, 95,000-square-foot facility, which should be completed by spring 2019, would contain laboratories and classroom space along with common areas shared among students and faculty from the three education tenants. It will be made up of two joined buildings. 

    Rowan plans to use part of its share of the space for a satellite office of the New Jersey Institute for Successful Aging, which is currently located in Stratford. That center would provide geriatric care and aging research.

    And 30,000 square feet of the facility will be a "simulation center" for Rowan's School of Osteopathic Medicine and CCC's allied health program. This portion of the building will allow for training in several medical procedures through computer simulations. There will also be lifelike training manikins that mimic breathing, a heartbeat, and other bodily functions.

    Besides teaching, there will be research in the facility, with a focus on fighting diseases. The facility is modeled after other joint academic centers, including one in Oregon and another with Duke University and the University of North Carolina.

    Though there was much to be said about the building itself, the speakers couldn't help but talk about the city as a whole. 

    "Eds and meds have been vital to the revitalization of this city," said Ali Houshmand, Rowan's president.

    Dana Redd, Camden's mayor, said "eds and meds have created a new identity for the city from its industrial past."

    The area around the groundbreaking, which was diagonally across the street from the Walter Rand Transportation Center, includes buildings for Rowan's Cooper Medical School and Rutgers-Camden's Nursing and Science School.

    The robbery occurred Friday night.

    PENNSAUKEN TWP. -- Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman who robbed a bank Friday night.

    The woman entered the BB&T Bank on Maple Avenue in Pennsauken around 7 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

    She received an undisclosed amount of cash, left the bank and entered the passenger's side of a green, four-door vehicle, which headed off in an unknown direction.

    No weapon was displayed and no injuries were reported.

    The bandit is described as white, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, in her mid-20s to early 30s, with an average build.

    She wore dark-framed, rectangular glasses and had "acne or possible pock marks" on her face, according to the prosecutor's press release.

    Man faces 10 years in prison for armed bank heist

    She wore dark-colored leggings, black flip-flops, a dark-colored hoodie sweatshirt with "Pink" written across the front and a black baseball cap.

    Police also released surveillance camera images of the woman.

    No description of the getaway vehicle's driver was provided.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact prosecutor's office Detective Andy McNeil at 609-575-2231 or Pennsauken Township Police Detective Paul McCausland at 856-488-0080, ext. 2409.

    Sixers suffer home-opening loss to the Celtics.

    PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia 76ers wanted the sold out crowd to "Welcome the Moment" during the home opener at the Wells Fargo Center Friday night.

    But it was the Boston Celtics who welcomed the fourth quarter, outscoring the Sixers 33-20, en route to a 102-92 victory

    The Sixers, who led 72-69 after three quarters, made just 9 of 23 shots in the final 12 minutes. 

    Sixers lose to Celtics: 8 takeaways

    Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 21 points. 

    The Sixers' Joel Embiid played 28 minutes, 2 seconds and finished the game with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 2 blocks. 

    J.J. Redick led the Sixers with a team-high 19 points while Ben Simmons finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.

    Seriously, folks, if Philadelphia as a region is ranked No. 3 by sooth-sayers for Amazon's new HQ, and metro New York is No. 6, which New Jersey city has the best shot?

    South Jersey became a longer longshot in the Amazon headquarters sweepstakes last week when Gov. Chris Christie backed Newark as New Jersey's preferred entry in a bid for up to $5 billion in investment and up to 50,000 jobs.

    Christie, backed by many state leaders in both political parties, even offered to sweeten the pot by an extra $2 billion in tax incentives over the $5 billion that the state previously announced it was prepared to give  -- if Amazon chose Newark for its so-called "HQ2." Some of the extra incentives would be financed by the city, not the state.

    The deadline to submit proposals to the online shopping giant was Thursday. Now that all the bids from around the continent are ready for review at Amazon's "HQ1" in Seattle, there is some disappointment around here that New Jersey is playing favorites. 

    On a policy basis alone, there should be debate about going out on a $7 billion limb. Previous tax-incentive whoppers dished out by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority to lure businesses to Camden and other cities have been controversial. But we'd guess that the Amazon pitch marks the first time our tax-credit-happy state has dangled $2 billion more than what a project is worth in front of a suitor. 

    From a geographic standpoint, Official New Jersey is toying with erasing more than half the state from Amazon's consideration. As we've said previously, no South Jersey location except Camden should have depleted any resources on a stand-alone application. There's a certain cachet to being known worldwide as a troubled city, but one that is on its way back. Jeff Bezos and his company could earn big social responsibility points for lifting Camden and its impoverished residents out of their remaining doldrums. You know, it's that buzz from being a compassionate corporate behemoth. 

    Focusing on Newark could lock Amazon's New Jersey shopping list into a metropolitan New York City frame, which is dumb. It probably won't hurt Jersey City's bid, but it freezes out New Brunswick, as well as Camden. The thing is, many credible outside analysts put Philadelphia ahead of New York City to land the giant. Moody's Analytics just ranked Philly third behind Austin, Texas, and Atlanta. The Big Apple was sixth. Since Camden is in the Philadelphia area, and Amazon has said it might go for sites just outside the core city it picks -- well, that's a legitimate edge.

    Camden City and Camden County officials won't criticize the governor for anointing Newark. (After all, he's been to Camden for countless ribbon cuttings for state-funded projects.) Mayor Dana Redd said Thursday she hopes that Christie will support Camden fully, if it turns out to be Amazon's choice.

    As it turns out, Camden's presentation, part of which was shared with the media Thursday, is solid and surprisingly comprehensive. It consists of almost 200 pages, including some nifty drawings of what the city's waterfront would look like if its footprint were transformed forever by Amazon. Camden County would tear down its dormant Campbell's Field baseball stadium in order to provide even more prime real estate for Amazon to use.

    Sorry, Atlantic City. Sorry, Salem County. Sorry, Gloucester County. Thanks for playing. Our best shot locally is Camden, even as part of Philadelphia's regional bid. If the New Jersey Legislature is really going to consider $7 billion in incentives for Amazon, it ought to keep other cities besides Newark as an option.
