Mullica School Top Chef Jr. Competition


MULLICA TOWNSHIP — Wyatt Engelmann loves bacon.
So it was no surprise he admitted eating a strip when he cooked bacon for the Romaine Calm Salad he entered in the Mullica Township School’s Top Chef Jr. competition Wednesday night.
Still, the missing strip did not hurt his score. Engelmann came in second, with judges praising the mix of flavors.
Asked why he called the zesty salad “calm,” he said it was advice to stay calm “because you’re about to get hit with flavor.”
The event was sponsored by the school Parent-Teacher Association, which received a $2,000 National PTA School Meals Grant. The purpose was to increase students’ daily consumption of fruits and vegetables.


Principal Matthew Mazzoni said about 100 students submitted proposals for a salad that was both tasty and nutritious. Sixteen were chosen to make their salad for a panel of four judges. In the cafeteria, students had 30 minutes to prepare the salad, with minimal help from parents.
Some arrived with ingredients pre-chopped in containers. Others worked from scratch, carefully slicing lettuce, mushrooms and chicken breasts as parents watched from the bleachers.
“I forgot to pack the blue cheese,” Danielle Rescigno, realized as her son, Brandon, 9, compiled a salad that included nuts, apples and dried cranberries. She sent her husband home to get it.
As judges began tasting, it soon became clear their choice would not be easy. Alexis Hakes, 12, said she had created the tasty homemade barbecue sauce for the grilled chicken on her Monster Meal salad.

 Chelsea Dailey, 10, tossed provolone, cheddar and feta cheese onto her Three Cheese Coyote salad.
“I love cheese,” she said.
Leah Denmead, 9, was the only student to make a fruit salad, and that worked in her favor. She was judged the first-place winner.
Judge Nicole LaTorre, an AtlantiCare Growing Green Chef Council member and owner of Eat Clean Org., admired Denmead’s decision to serve her multi-fruit salad in a hollowed-out grapefruit.
“It looks nice, and it is repurposing part of the grapefruit that would otherwise just be thrown away,” LaTorre said.
Students were judges on taste, presentation, creativity and workmanship.
Third-place winner was Ava Jade Fox, whose Crunchy Delight salad featured a fresh strawberry dressing.


PTA President Jessica Carroll, who also judged, said she was impressed by the variety in the salads and the level of participation by the students. Other judges were teachers Britney Baumgartel and Barbara Manzer.
Manzer said it was hard to pick, but for her the dressings made the difference.
“You could tell when students made the dressings themselves,” she said.
LaTorre was also impressed with the skill levels, complimenting Rocco Buonsante on the perfectly grilled chicken in his chicken and bean salad.
“It was nice to see how excited they were,” she said.


The original plan was to pick one winner, whose salad would be featured on the school cafeteria menu. But with so many choices, Mazzoni said he will try to have all three featured, maybe doing one a month.
“We are trying to get students to eat more salad,” Mazzoni said.

Wiretap Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery


Freedom Watch Chairman, Larry Klayman, has sent an urgent letter to Devin Nunes and members of the House of Representatives asking why no questions have been asked of whistleblower Dennis Montgomery during the Intelligence Committee Hearings on wiretapping.

Mr. Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information showing systemic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans during the Obama Administration.  Some of those under surveillance included the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. other Justices, 156 judges and Donald Trump.

Tsunami Exercise Scheduled 3/22


The LANTEX17 exercise simulates a tsunami generated by a magnitude 8.8 earthquake located approximately 345 miles west southwest from Lisbon, Portugal and 510 miles west of the Straits of Gibraltar at 36.0ºN, 15.0ºW. Such a quake would send a tsunami towards North America. Image: NOAA
Are you and your local officials prepared for a potential destructive tsunami along the US east coast? An exercise scheduled for March 22 will help bring awareness to the threat, allowing local officials and residents to be ready when an actual threat arrives. (If any real tsunami threat occurs during the time period of the exercise, the exercise will be terminated.)

High School Scholarships


Each year the Atlantic County Council of Education Associations (ACCEA), which represents over 7,000 Atlantic County education professionals, awards 3-$1,500 Scholarships to Atlantic County students graduating from public high schools.
In 2011 the scholarship program award amount was increased to $1,500, and rather than seniors planning to become teachers/educators, eligibility was extended to other areas of education (for example, School Social Worker, Psychologist, Speech Therapist, etc.).
EXPECTATION: Two $1,500.00 scholarships will be awarded to students who plan to attend a 4-year college/university and enter any field of professional education. One $1,500.00 scholarship will be awarded to a student who plans to attend Atlantic Cape Community College. These recipients will receive their awards upon completion and verification of the 2017 Fall Semester.
APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED ON OR BEFORE April 4, 2017. Failure to do so will result in ineligibility.
Applications are available at student's high school guidance offices OR can be downloaded by visiting: www.acceanews.org and clicking the link for the ACCEA SCHOLARSHIP.
