    Three churches spread peanut butter and jelly to help the hungry in a Camden kitchen.

    WASHINGTON TWP. - Several Lutheran Churches united over the weekend to spread love, one peanut butter and jelly at a time.

    On Sunday, three Lutheran churches gathered to make 600 peanut butter and jellies to donate to the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden. Starting at 12:30 p.m., the congregations gathered and began putting together the sandwiches at Apostles Lutheran Church in Turnersville.

    In the weeks leading up to the event, the churches took collections, getting bread, peanut butter and jelly for the day. Volunteers from the churches signed up to "cook" and package the sandwiches for the delivery.

    This community outreach project is the first of many joint ventures planned by the three churches to help assist those in need in the South Jersey area.

    A sprawling new multiplex from Cinemark - the third largest movie-theater chain in the United States - is planned for Willowbrook Mall by 2019, township officials said Monday.

    WAYNE - A sprawling new multiplex from Cinemark - the third largest movie-theater chain in the United States - is planned for Willowbrook Mall by 2019, township officials said Monday.

    The 12-auditorium, 44,000-square-foot theater with plush seating, ceiling-to-floor screens and state-of-the-art digital sound system will be built where the Sears Auto Center now stands at 50 U.S. 46, according to plans approved Oct. 10 by the Wayne Township Planning Board.

    Seritage SRC Finance will raze the existing Sears and build the new theater along with an illuminated sign standing 80 feet tall and eight feet wide, according to Linda Lutz, acting township planner.

    "The theater will have those big, reclining lounge chairs," Lutz said Monday. Cinemark calls the electric-powered, oversize, lounge chairs with footrests and cup holders "luxury loungers."

    The new theater, which will contain a large concession area and arcade, will be built in walking distance from the 14-screen AMC Loews multiplex on Willowbrook Boulevard.

    Cinemark has two other theaters in New Jersey, one in Hazlet the other in Somerdale.

    In August, Cinemark was given the OK to build a 10-screen theater off Route 22 in Watchung.

    Cinemark has 337 theaters and 4,544 screens in 41 states.

    "They needed assistance, they needed food and water and to know someone cares about them," one of the volunteer nurses said. Watch video

    Seven New Jersey nurses left behind their families and their comfortable homes  and headed to Puerto Rico to help those still suffering from the impact of  Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

    Once they arrived, they saw that historic buildings had crumbled and uprooted trees, branches and debris landed on homes and in roads. Residents were spending their day in moldy homes lacking necessities like food and water and sleeping on wet mattresses at night.

    To help, the nurses were split among teams two weeks ago that included doctors, electricians and community leaders, and went to work.

    "I didn't think twice," Harriet Itoka, a nurse at Jersey City Medical Center said about deciding to to volunteer. "I thought it would be a good opportunity to help people since that's what I'm in the field for." 

    On Sept. 6, Hurricane Irma crossed the island, then the island was nearly destroyed when Hurricane Maria made landfall Sept. 20 as one of the worst hurricanes in the history of the U.S. After the storms, millions were left without electricity, telephones, shelter, food and water.

    A month after Hurricane Maria, nearly 80 percent are still without electricity, more than 4,000 people are still living in shelters, clean water and food at least 49 people are dead and there is 

    Many of the New Jersey nurses volunteered after receiving emails from their union, the Health Professionals and Allied Employees (HPAE). The nurses' union coordinated the project with the American Federation of Teachers for the trip.

    Jose Desus, a nurse at Inspira Health Network in Vineland, said they spent nearly 12 hours a day going out to the city of San Juan and more rural areas of the island. Although U.S. officials had commented on the significant improvements being made after the storms, Elisa Martinez, a nurse at Jersey City Medical Center, saw a different picture last week.

    "Some of the citizens would joke around and say there's no FEMA just flema here. (flema, translating to English for phlegm)," Martinez said. "People need people. They needed assistance, they needed food and water and to know someone cares about them because no one has been around."  

    DeJesus made it his goal to reach what he called the smaller and remote towns that FEMA had not reached. He remembered seeing a mile-long line outside the FEMA offices where some citizens passed out after waiting so long without adequate food or water.

    "It was just a general sense of shock among the community. I wouldn't be surprised if they have PTSD affects. They were just so anxious wondering where their next meal was coming from," DeJesus said.

    NJ nurses who volunteered

    • Joan Davis of Sicklerville, NJ - Cooper University Hospital
    • Jose DeJesus of Vineland, NJ -Inspira Health Network
    • Xiana Gutierrez of Belleville, NJ -VNAHG (Visiting Nurse Health Group) / St. Joseph's Wayne Hospital
    • Harriet Itoka of Rosedale, NJ -Bayonne Medical Center
    • Elisa Martinez of Newark, NJ -Jersey City Medical Center
    • Dawn Shourt of Edison, NJ -Chelsea Senior Living
    • Washington Villacres of Jersey City, NJ -Christ Hospital and VNAHG

    The nurses took residents' blood pressure, took patients to local hospitals and created sheets in Spanish to pass out to citizens about how to get clean water and to treat diseases. 

    Harriet Itoka, a nurse at Jersey City Medical Center, remembers seeing a woman in whose legs were swollen, which prevented her from moving. She had been sitting in a chair on her porch for nearly a week. She told them, she was fine, that she just needed some supplies. 

    "She just wanted us to give her water, but we told her 'No' we knew we had to do more," Itoka said. They took her to a makeshift hospital.

    For volunteers such as Martinez and DeJesus, both Puerto Rican natives, the trip was personal. Both were able to connect with family members, who, too, were  in dire need of help.

    "It was heartbreaking to see my own aunt begging me for water," Martinez said. "Even now that I'm back home this week I'm just that much more grateful for simply thing like a warm shower or running water. It's crazy to think that people just don't even have basic necessities."

    The incident occurred in Haddon Township on Oct. 14.

    HADDON TWP. -- Police released a photo Tuesday of a man wanted for an armed robbery of a gas station on busy Route 130.

    South Jersey siblings pleaded guilty Tuesday to violating the federal anti-kickback act.

    CHERRY HILL -- A brother and sister have admitted to their roles in paying cash kickbacks in a conspiracy that involved U.S. Navy parts. 

    John Schallenhammer, 57, of Atco, New Jersey, and his sister, Theresa Schallenhammer, 53, of Cherry Hill, pleaded guilty in federal court in Newark to conspiracy to violate the federal anti-kickback act, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Tuesday. Both have been released on $50,000 bail pending sentencing in February.  

    The charges stem from a three-year scheme in which Schallenhammer paid kickbacks to a King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, based man named Christopher Sanchirico, who served as the assistant purchasing manager for a Philadelphia company identified by authorities as "Subcontractor 1." The entity manufactures shock-hardened circuit breakers and switchgears for U.S. Navy ships, submarines and aircraft carriers, and has performed work for both the Navy and Defense Logistics Agency, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. 

    The conspiracy began in 2013 when John Schallenhammer, the president of a Cherry Hill machine shop identified as "Subcontractor 2," sought Sanchirico's assistance in securing a manufacturing contract between the two companies.

    In exchange for the deal, John Schallenhammer agreed to give Sanchirico 5 to 10 percent of the revenue generated by the sale of circuit breaker and switchgear components from Subcontractor 1 to Subcontractor 2, authorities said. 

    John Schallenhammer's sister and secretary, Theresa Schallenhammer, kept records of the payments, and sometimes made withdrawals from the bank to fund the kickbacks when her brother was unable to do so, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. 

    From 2013 to 2016, the Schallenhammers paid Sanchirico some $150,000 in cash kickbacks, authorities said. 

    John and Theresa Schallenhammer each face a maximum up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sanchirico pleaded guilty to a related charge for his role in the scheme earlier this month, and is awaiting sentencing.

    John Gaeta failed to report income of $375,882 in 2012 and $307,669 in 2013

    CAMDEN -- The owner of an Ocean City boardwalk pizzeria has admitted he failed to report more than $682,000 in income over two years.

    John Gaeta Jr., 54, the owner of Big Slice Pizza,  pleaded guilty to two counts of filing false tax returns Monday in federal court in Camden, according to court documents. He faces up to three years in prison as well as fines when he is sentenced Feb. 2.

    Gaeta, of Cherry Hill, failed to report income of $375,882 in 2012 and $307,669 in 2013. The lack of reporting cheated the government out of $85,522. 

    Husband and wife arrested on sales tax evasion charges

    He listed his wife as the owner of the business even though she had no role in it, charging documents state. 

    "IRS-Criminal Investigation's largest enforcement area is directed at individuals and businesses that intentionally attempt to cheat the government by not paying their fair share of taxes," IRS special agent Johnathan Larsen said in a statement. "(The) guilty plea by Mr. Gaeta is another example of how serious we take tax offenses and that we will continue to vigorously pursue these types of investigations."

    In February, the owner of a different Ocean City pizzeria, Manco and Manco, got 15 months in prison in a similar case.

    Things that give us a scare are all part of the season.

    Halloween has always been about ghosts, goblins, witches and ghouls. Things that give us a scare are all part of the season, and we've included some creepy photos in this gallery to keep that tradition going.

    But Halloween also offers us a snapshot of the culture of the times, as evidenced by the costumes that folks wear when celebrating the season. According to thedailymeal.com, "In the 1920s, costumes started out simple and homemade. The Pierrot clown, with its dramatic black and white painted face, was a popular costume. Other Halloween staples, like witches, gypsies, and farmers, got their start in the 1920s."

    In the 1930s, Disney themes became big Halloween hits, with children dressing as Minnie and Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and other animated characters. The website notes that the modern trend of sexy costumes for adults began in the 1940s due, in part, to material shortages.

    The 1950s were heavily influenced by both world cultures and TV. Cowboys were hugely popular, due to the numerous westerns on the three networks. The move toward making Hawaii the 50th state in 1959 resulted in grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts as popular costumes. And what else would the 1960s be except superheroes, with Superman, Batman and many other caped crusaders becoming THE costume to have during the decade.

    The 1970s saw Peanuts characters dominate costume sales, while the 1980s were an eclectic mix of pop culture from Hulk Hogan to Elvira. Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles dominated the '90s, while Harry Potter characters were all the rage in the new millennium.

    Here's a gallery of New Jerseyans dressed up and scary sights from around the state. And here are links to other galleries you might like.
