Rep Jared Solomon gets hitched, Brooke Thomas Update, Local Honey Hannah Krupa

The last Sunday in August. WOW did the summer go by so fast, I think it did because we packed it with so many fun things to do, memories with friends, beer gardens, family fun and pretty good weather. I think the most shocking thing I recall this summer is Hurricane Schwartz correctly predicting that the weather in June would be hotter than the weather in August. You know I’m a weather geek and I follow all those predictions, although sometimes they can be more like a horoscope outcome. BTW If you’re looking for a Sunday drive today, head over to South New Jersey and pick up some delicious Jersey Tomatoes. I just had some for breakfast. So good, my Uncle Carmen tells me the uglier they are the tastier. Go visit Visalli Farms

Speaking of South Jersey, earlier this week New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney, Glassboro Mayor Leo McCabe, Rowan University President Ali Houshmand, and Gloucester County Freeholder Heather Simmons, Nexus Properties today celebrated the official ribbon cutting of the largest phase of Rowan Boulevard, known as A3.     The A3 development – part of Glassboro’s transformative multi-phase redevelopment called Rowan Boulevard – is composed a unique mix of luxury student and market-rate apartments, retail and office space, state-of-the-art classrooms and a multi-level parking garage. The opening represents perhaps the most significant milestone to date in the $400-million “public-public-private” development initiative, which has already established a magnetic, inter-generational town center serving to even more closely link the burgeoning Glassboro community and Rowan University, one of the fastest-growing institutions in the nation.
