Who’s ready to go to space?

Circles Around the Sun, a singular force in the modern jam band universe, hits the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park on Friday night.

The band was created by Denville native guitarist Neal Casal to manifest Grateful Dead-inspired instrumental pieces played during the set breaks of the Dead’s 2015 Fare The Well stadium concerts, recordings released later that year as “Recordings for the Dead.”

Circles Around the Sun have been charting new sonic territory since, and played on in the wake of Casal’s 2019 death.

The band released two stunning singles last year, the enveloping “Outer Boroughs” and the lush, expansive “Language” featuring harpist Mikaela Davis, as well as the live album “Live at the Charleston Pour House 11/12/21.”

“Language” is also the title of the band’s forthcoming fourth album, set to arrive in the spring.

Nectar’s Presents brings Circles Around the Sun — guitarist John Lee Shannon, bassist Dan Horne, keyboardist Adam MacDougall and drummer Mark Levy — with support from Rich Ruth. This is a journey in sound you want to take.

Go: Circles Around the Sun with Rich Ruth, 7 p.m. Friday, Wonder Bar, Fifth and Ocean Avenues, $20 in advance and $25 at the door; wonderbarasburypark.com.

Wrecking ball looms for historic St. Francis senior facility in Denville

The new owners of the former St. Francis Residential Community plan to demolish the aging, historic buildings to clear the way for a new 110-bed senior health facility on the 17-acre property near St. Clare's Hospital and the Oaks at Denville senior complex.

The announcement Wednesday from Wall Township-based Springpoint, the operator of 10 senior living communities, including the neighboring Oaks at Denville, said the nonprofit is also considering “other options” for the pastoral property at the corner of Pocono and Diamond Spring roads near St. Clare’s Hospital.

"It goes without saying the mayor and township officials feel a deep sense of loss and sorrow about the impending demolition," reads a statement from Denville Administrator Steven Ward. "By the time the township was made aware of the prospective real estate transfer, it was too late to intervene to preserve the facility, despite our tireless efforts to do so over a period of months in 2021."

The Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother, who opened St. Francis as a health resort 127 years ago, contracted Springpoint for logistical and administrative support last year after announcing in June that it would close the facility sometime in 2022. At the time, St. Francis operated 58 rooms and 65 independent-living apartments for seniors. Residents had the option of extra services such as meals, housekeeping and medication assistance.

The sisters later announced they would transfer ownership of the property and historic campus buildings to Springpoint.

"As the buildings and campus infrastructure have aged, it has become increasingly difficult to fund the maintenance and needed renovations to sustain the financial viability of the community," the sisters wrote in a statement announcing the closure.

"The planned 110-bed health care center will support the care needs of residents of The Oaks as well as seniors from the surrounding community and region," Springpoint vice president of marketing and communications Julia Zauner said.

This community facility will specifically offer assisted living, memory care and other long-term care services for seniors, Zauner said.

Springpoint has retained KDA Architects "to guide the vision planning process." Zauner said the company has yet to determine the position of the new facility on the campus at the corner of Pocono and Diamond Spring roads.

Zauner said the company has no current plans to sell the excess property to developers. "Our plan is to continue to use the land consistent with its current zoning," Zauner said.

The St. Francis property, along with the Oaks at Denville and St. Clare's Hospital, are in an OB-3 zone that permits office buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, senior citizen facilities and related support services. Retail sales are prohibited except for pharmacies and related medical services within the facility.

Ward confirmed Springpoint is expected to apply soon for demolition permits. Removal of the buildings and clearing of the site is expected to begin in the fall. Groundbreaking on the new building is anticipated for "some time in 2024."

"As the facility is privately owned and was never listed on any state or federal historic registers, the township cannot legally prevent the demolition of Saint Francis structures," the township statement reads.

Denville Mayor Tom Andes described St. Francis and its amenities as "an ocean cruise ship that doesn't go anywhere."

His mother was among the residents who transferred next door to The Oaks.

"It's such a shame," Andes said. "It's a beautiful place. I wish they had said something sooner. Maybe we could have done something. It's a terrible loss. It's part of the community."

Historic items in the building were donated to the Denville Historical society. Pews from the chapel were donated to the Archdiocese of Newark.

The shuttered facility was used in April as the set for the filming of a horror movie, "The Home," starring Pete Davidson.

Springpoint serves more than 4,000 seniors in New Jersey and Delaware and has nearly 2,000 employees.

Downtown Denville Business Improvement District Head Proposes BID's Dissolution

DENVILLE, NJ - The Downtown Denville Business Improvement District may soon be no more.

During the Oct. 18 Denville council meeting, BID President Tommy Dean informed the public that he and the District, after a vote, intend to dissolve themselves during their last meeting.

According to Dean, the District, a non-profit, funded by downtown property owners, which aims to bring promotions, improvements and shared interests to help Denville’s downtown prosper, has been dealing with “frustration” for the past six years.

Such a vote, as later specified by Angela Cote, is non-binding and unofficial, though it does show the current mindset of the BID.

“Downtowns throughout the country are faced with so many problems, and if we don’t start to look into the future, we’re not going to do us justice - the community, the businesses, and ultimately it comes down to the residents,” said Dean.

Dean called Denville “the only town within 15 miles” to have the downtown it does, but emphasized that this comes with issues. He said the District has not been receiving the support it desires and that its members hope to create a dialogue with the council.

According to Dean, the primary issue with the District is parking. While Denville does have “convenient” parking, people will move on if they can’t find a spot, a situation made more intense because builders are not required to add parking when they build upwards on Bloomfield Avenue, as it is an overlay zone. This, Dean said, severely hurts Denville’s small businesses.

He added that there have also been some considerable internal issues in the BID.

“We’re important, but we don’t feel like we have a seat at the table”, he finished. He asked the council to begin “asking the right questions to the people downtown” and to query downtown businesses for comments and questions.

Additionally, Dean said the BID has had a tough time speaking with the downtown business owners and attempts to speak have not been met with as much respect as they desired.

Before a potential dissolution can be started or officially considered, however, there is much paperwork to be done, including a formal vote and an audit, according to Town Attorney Fred Semrau. This dissolution, were it to happen, would be done by voiding the ordinance which created it. Angela Cote said that the Council will “need to go offline” and discuss the topic.

“We see progress, we see change, and I don’t think it’s as much as you guys want to see right now,” said Cote.

John Murphy said that he has spoken with several downtown business owners recently and the consensus among them is for the BID to continue, however, no one is willing to come forward to the BID. Very rarely do members of the public show up to the BID meetings, though they are always welcome to come.

“Your dilemma is the exact same that our fire department is facing, our first aid squad is having, it's getting volunteers,” he said.

According to BID member Kristin Pamperin, there is no burnout among the BID, and the BID has a passion to move forward, but it’s difficult to run a board when every step the board takes leads to them hitting a wall.

“It’s really hard to spend taxpayers’ dollars, put together formal presentations, start to hand them over and then get a response saying 'not at this time,'" she said. "We don’t mind if it’s a difficult discussion. We don’t mind if it’s a back and forth. That’s lively, that’s discussion, that’s getting in there and making a difference. But when one side shuts the door, then we wonder why we are doing this over and over and over.”

Denville well malfunctions, prompting water emergency. What you need to know

A malfunctioning well has forced Denville to declare a water emergency and restrict car washing, lawn watering and other residential uses, though an official on Tuesday said the township was making progress toward a fix.

A malfunctioning well has forced Denville to declare a water emergency and restrict car washing, lawn watering and other residential uses, though an official on Tuesday said the township was making progress toward a fix. The town had already imposed limits this month ahead of a scheduled refurbishment of a water tower. That and the borderline drought conditions around the region left the water supply in a precarious position, Denville said in an advisory sent to residents on Sunday.

"The combination of ongoing maintenance of the township's main water tank, the recent unusually dry conditions, and now the malfunctioning well, is causing a very low water supply to the township," the advisory read. "As a result, all outdoor water use (lawn watering, car washing, etc.) is strictly prohibited until further notice."

Tuesday, Denville Recreation Director Nick Panetta said what he believed to be a mechanical issue at the well was resolved by DPW workers who deployed on Sunday.

"Things are looking positive and we're looking for ways we can lift some of the restrictions, but as of now we have to stay at the full restriction," Panetta said.

The limits do not apply to residents with private wells who do not use municipal water, Panetta said.

Residents and businesses in Denville were already under a 90-day period of restricted water use as the township began scheduled refurbishing of its primary water tank. Contractors took the 1.25-million-gallon tank offline on August 1 and expect the work will take 60 to 90 days to complete.

Under those restrictions, residents with even house numbers were permitted outside water use on even-numbered days, and residents with odd-numbered homes on odd-number days. The limits covered the watering of "lawns, shrubs, ornamental plants, etc., as well as the washing of automobiles, trucks, ATVs, boats, etc."

Southern portions of Morris County and most of Central Jersey were added last week to the area of "moderate drought" conditions in New Jersey by the U.S. Drought Monitor. The rest of Morris County and most of northern New Jersey were listed as "abnormally dry." The drought classifications will be revised on Thursday.

State Environmental Protection Commissioner Shawn LaTourette issued a statewide drought watch last week, the first step toward declaring a full drought. He called for residents and businesses to conserve water, but if conditions do not improve, mandatory water use restrictions may be necessary in parts of the state, LaTourette said in a briefing with reporters.

"When we look out at temperature outlook and precipitation outlook, we continue to be concerned," he said.
