WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. & MT. ARLINGTON, N.J. – Nationwide Marketing Group and point-of-sale provider STORIS announced an agreement that solidifies STORIS as an integral part of Nationwide’s “approved Point of Sale provider initiative.” This formalization coincides with the companies marking 25 years of collaboration on behalf of the independent retail channel. Over this time, the partnership has resulted in thriving technology offerings for over 100 Nationwide Members who’ve processed over $3B annually in retail revenue through STORIS. These Members are a part of STORIS’ over 500-member home furnishings and appliance retail community.
“As we formalize our Point of Sale initiatives, solidifying our partnership with STORIS was a top priority,” says Steve Mahler, director of point of sale for Nationwide. “Having collaborated closely with the STORIS team for decades, we have seen firsthand that their commitment to home furnishings and appliance retailers, level of client services, and industry knowledge are unmatched.”
“We are equally excited to begin this next chapter of our partnership,” says Doug Culmone, STORIS President and COO. “We value the strong network of retailers, service offerings, and education Nationwide Marketing Group delivers to our industry and are pleased to be working even more closely together on joint initiatives.”
Through this partnership, STORIS and Nationwide will spearhead several new key initiatives. First, Nationwide Members can now choose its new mobile, web based STORIS NextGen platform as part of its solution.
“STORIS’ continuous evolution of their STORIS NextGen platform keeps our mutual partners in a strong market position,” says Mahler. “STORIS is the leader in technology designed for the home furnishings industry. They have a pulse on the needs of furniture, bedding, and appliance retailers along with a proven track-record of executing their technology vision.”
Second, the STORIS team worked closely with Nationwide to provide multiple website service levels to meet the varying integration needs of the independent retailer. Together, they offer retailers three levels of e-commerce integration capabilities between the STORIS ERP and Site on Time or Retailer Web Services. This is achieved through Nationwide’s new Centerpoint website integration and STORIS’ APIs. Retailers have the flexibility to start with simple inventory synchronization or execute a fully integrated e-commerce strategy.
Finally, retailers can choose to submit aggregate data from STORIS to Nationwide’s PriMetrix program. This POS data sharing program helps leverage collective scale and give Members business intelligence that delivers bottom-line results.
“We are excited to offer our Nationwide Members an even more robust partnership with STORIS,” says Mahler. “What makes STORIS truly unique is their exceptional team. As a Top Workplace, STORIS retains a top-notch, in-house team across engineering and client services. They bring an unparalleled expertise of the home furnishings and appliance industry to their technology and client relationships that provide a key advantage to our mutual partners.

A list of finalists for the prestigious awards, which debuted a new Outstanding Bakery category this year, will be released in March, followed by a June 5 announcement for the award winners.
The James Beard Foundation announced semifinalists for its 2023 Restaurant and Chef Awards in a press release on January 25. Among the nominees were a number of restaurateurs and chefs who graced BA’s list of the 50 Best New Restaurants of 2022. Those semifinalists include Yenvy and Quynh Pham, the Seattle duo behind a small empire of pho shops and the cocktail bar Ph?cific Standard Time, as well as Amanda Shulman of Her Place Supper Club in Philadelphia and Ayo Balogun of Dept. of Culture in Brooklyn. Shaina Loew-Banayan, the owner of Cafe Mutton, one of BA’s 10 Best New Restaurants of 2022, was also nominated in the category of Best Chef: New York State.
The Foundation grants awards to chefs, restaurateurs, bar owners, media professionals, authors, and other influential figures in the food and hospitality space. Alongside the Michelin guide and the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, the James Beard awards are seen as one of the highest honors in the restaurant industry.
This year’s awards will feature the first-ever honorees in a new Outstanding Bakery category. Honorees for this award will be recognized for exemplary breads, pastries, or desserts. The first crop of semifinalists include New York City’s She Wolf Bakery; Haymaker Bun Company, in Middlebury, Vermont; and Yoli Tortilleria, a tortilla producer in Kansas City, Missouri.
In the past several years, the foundation has been criticized for a lack of transparency and diversity. The year 2023 marks the start of the second James Beard Awards following an internal audit of the foundation’s methodology. The organization announced it would not name honorees for 2020 and 2021 in the first year of the pandemic, with the stated goal of reworking their methodology for selecting winners—though The New York Times later reported that the decision came after not a single Black chef was to be recognized in 2020. This year’s honorees will be selected through the foundation’s new protocols for scouting and nominations, including greater BIPOC representation among judges and committee members, and an overhauled grievance system to handle nominee misconduct allegations.
Read the full list of semifinalists below, and check back on March 29 for the foundation’s list of finalists and on June 5 for the Restaurant and Chef Award winners.
Deptford, N.J. (January 22, 2023) – The Mount Bowling team was one of resilience Sunday, earning wins over #10 nationally ranked Maryland Eastern Shore and #14 Fairleigh Dickinson to conclude the Northeast Classic with an 8-4 record.

Deptford, N.J. (January 22, 2023) – The Mount Bowling team was one of resilience Sunday, earning wins over #10 nationally ranked Maryland Eastern Shore and #14 Fairleigh Dickinson to conclude the Northeast Classic with an 8-4 record. The team finished 15th overall in a near record field of 33 teams, 22 of which are ranked in the latest NTCA top-25 coaches poll.
Freshman Trishelle Leal Uribe was lights out for the Mount, posting a 21.38 baker frame average on the day. Junior Alyssa Alexander got back on track with a solid 19.12 baker frame average and key contributions in the anchor position. Sophomore Rachel Hines delivered an 18.42 on the day.
#15 Mount: 2 (149-193-199-200-162) | #10 MD Eastern Shore: 4 (211-188-205-212-185)
The two highest ranked programs in the state of Maryland kicked off bracket play Sunday with the #10 Hawks of Maryland Eastern Shore coming out on top 4-1. After a decisive loss in game one, the Mountaineers could only take one of the next four that all came down to the final frame.
#15 Mount: 4 (193-166-165-224-203-209) | #14 Fairleigh Dickinson: 2 (189-222-202-183-167-206)
Former NEC rivals squared off in an intense round two match. Down 2-1, the Mount switched around the order of the lineup with the same five bowlers and proceeded to toss three games over 200. All three were good enough for wins and helped move MSM back up the bracket.
#15 Mount: 4 (194-175-177-196-202-199) | #10 MD Eastern Shore: 2 (198-194-224-175-200-149)
With a daily winning record on the line, the Mountaineers and Hawks found themselves in a rematch for 15th and 16th place. Similar to the match prior, The Mount fell behind 2-1 before wheeling off an impressive final three games to secure the 4-2 victory.
"Growth can happen at any given time," said head coach Kenneth DeGraaf. "After a dismal trip to Vegas, I saw this team grow at practice. I saw us grow at this tournament. I even saw the growing happen within these three matches on a singular day. We became a better team by match three than we were when the day started. All the characteristics that make up a winning culture are slowly starting to come back to us. Another week of growth and I think we can really shock some people at the Prairie View Invite next week."
The Prairie View Invite, widely regarded as the most prestigious event of the NCAA regular season, features the tournament host Panthers and the top 11 ranked teams at the end of the 2021-22 season. The Mount ended last season ranked eleventh. The event takes place Jan. 27-29 at the world famous International Training & Resource Center in Arlington, Texas, home of Team USA and the International Bowling Hall of Fame.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(22/P045) TRENTON – The Department of Environmental Protection is awarding $9.95 million in grants to local government agencies, nonprofit groups, universities, and others to fund projects that will improve water quality and reduce the impacts of nonpoint source pollution from stormwater on publicly accessible lakes throughout New Jersey, Commissioner Shawn M. LaTourette announced today.
More than $8 million of the grants will fund projects on lakes in or next to overburdened communities in New Jersey, resulting in improved water quality and increased recreational opportunities for residents of these communities.
“These grants will help a diverse group of DEP partners implement projects that will reduce the harmful effects of stormwater, nonpoint source pollution and Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) that will only worsen due to the impacts of climate change,” said Commissioner LaTourette. “On behalf of the Murphy Administration, we are excited to facilitate these projects in various overburdened communities to meet Department environmental justice and statewide water quality goals and objectives.”
Grant funds may be used to improve lake water quality, control nutrient levels to prevent future harmful algal blooms, and to enhance, improve, or protect lake-associated conservation and recreation uses. The funding stems from a $10 million federal American Rescue Plan Act award to New Jersey that was appropriated by the state Legislature for the management and maintenance of lakes for recreation and conservation purposes.
The award recipients and amounts are:
Avon-by-the-Sea (Monmouth County): $490,768 This project will implement the second phase of the Sylvan Lake Living Shoreline Project, a natural solution-based project designed to mitigate nonpoint source pollution impacting the waterway, a coastal lake on the border of Avon and Bradley Beach.
Bay Head (Ocean County): $99,900 The goal of this project is biochar installation and evaluation of its potential for nitrogen and phosphorus removal in Twilight Lake. The project aims to document the amount of phosphorus and nitrogen removed from biochar, a charcoal-like material that can filter out water impurities, during six-month periods.
Burlington (Burlington County): $95,000 The community will create a Lake Characterization Plan and a future Lake Watershed Protection Plan, both of which will identify water quality preservation measures to support stormwater detention/filtration and expanded recreational activities.
Camden County Soil Conservation District: $153,720 Project partners, led by the Camden County Soil Conservation District, propose developing an EPA Watershed Implementation Plan for the Cooper River Lake Watershed that will also address climate change impacts.
Deal Lake Commission: $890,400 Green infrastructure Best Management Practices and other DEP-approved stormwater management devices will be used to reduce nonpoint source pollutant loading and improve lake water quality. A preliminarily designed stormwater quality improvement plan developed with Ocean Township, Monmouth County and Seaview Square Mall also will be implemented.
Florham Park (Morris County): $176,900 This project involves designing, installing and monitoring a system to reduce phosphorus concentrations, decrease HABs and shift to a healthier plankton assemblage that serves as the base of the aquatic food web.
Greenwood Lake Commission: $1 million Working with Princeton Hydro, Montclair State University and Northern Lights, this project will conduct a comprehensive stormwater/nonpoint source management inventory and perform extensive water quality and HAB monitoring. The partners also aim to remove sediment, invasive plants, and debris via hydro-raking, provide nutrient inactivation in Belcher Creek with ferric sulfate and develop a long-term plan to improve Belcher Creek’s water quality and natural functions.
Hillsborough (Somerset County): $246,000 Reducing pollutant loads to Fox Chase Pond will stabilize the pond's eroding shoreline, restore a vegetative buffer and educate the public about the importance of stormwater management and green infrastructure.
Lake Hopatcong Commission: $1 million
This project will focus on reducing phosphorus loading to minimize the magnitude, duration and occurrence of HABs. It involves working with four surrounding municipalities (Jefferson Township, Roxbury, Hopatcong and Mount Arlington) to install and remove biochar sleeves in two stormwater ponds and in a series of stormwater structures, manufactured treatment devices, and inlets into Lake Hopatcong. The project will also include the removal of sediment that has accumulated immediately in front of or adjacent to stormwater pipes or outfalls that discharge directly into the lake.
Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board: $572,000 The project will fund the continued operation of a mechanical weed harvester on the lake. Since 2010, the program has removed more than 21.9 million pounds of weeds, according to the applicant, which has resulted in the removal of almost 4,000 pounds of phosphorus from the waterbody.
Lawrence Township (Mercer County): $316,800 A multilayer approach will be used to improve Colonial Lake water quality through hydro-raking, removing impervious surfaces (an asphalt parking lot) and installing a living shoreline.
Moorestown Township (Burlington County): $113,500 An in-lake vegetation removal management project will be implemented in Strawbridge Lake and Pennsauken Creek (North Branch) to remove up to 15 acres of the overabundant noxious species Spatterdock from the lake.
Morris County Park Commission: $722,037.75 Green stormwater infrastructure such as permeable pavement systems will be used to intercept on-site runoff, allowing for structured parking areas while reducing stormwater nutrient loads entering Lake Hopatcong.
Mount Arlington (Morris County): $36,100 Funds will be used to construct five rain gardens across the borough in critical runoff areas and measure the impact of the gardens and mitigation of stormwater runoff. Residents will be able to use a how-to guide on the borough’s website to learn how to plant their own rain garden and track the borough’s progress via social media.
New Jersey Institute of Technology: $788,235 The project will develop lake watershed-based restoration and protection plans by implementing green infrastructure projects at two watersheds using Green Engineered Mulch. An educational component will focus on teaching local high school students about green infrastructure designs and benefits.
New Jersey Water Supply Authority (NJWSA): $825,500 Three projects are planned:
Perth Amboy (Middlesex County): $200,000 Activities for this project primarily include the removal of the invasive plant, Phragmites, from areas surrounding Willow Pond as well as the implementation of measures to prevent regrowth. The project also includes algae control, water quality monitoring, replacement of goose deterrent strobe lights, removal of woody debris, installation of three new aerators, shoreline planting and public outreach activities.
Pinelands Preservation Alliance: $581,500 The project calls for installing 80 green stormwater infrastructure projects surrounding 10 public lakes, five in the Highlands and five in the Pinelands. Converting 130,000 square feet of drainage area to green stormwater infrastructure will improve the functionality of the lakes, which suffer from pollutant overloading and limit recreational uses.
Point Pleasant Beach (Ocean County): $99,300 The borough will develop a Lake/Watershed Plan that integrates standard U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) criteria to provide a roadmap to water quality improvement.
South Jersey Resource Conservation and Development Council: $243,122 This project will continue implementation of a Watershed Protection and Restoration Plan for the Manalapan Brook Watershed.
South Jersey Resource Conservation and Development Council: $102,426 The grant will follow an EPA Watershed Implementation Plan for Smithville Lake Watershed to address water quality impairments.
Spring Lake (Monmouth County): $850,000 Funds will be used to collect pre-project site-specific survey/topographic data, engineering sizing, hydrologic modeling and baseline ecological data. The borough also would perform required lake dredging and safe disposal of dredged material.
Swartswood Lakes and Watershed Association: $361,377 Weed hydro-raking and harvesting will be conducted to reduce nutrients in the lake, improve lake water circulation, reduce lake water temperatures in weeded areas, enhance recreational value and improve fisheries.

Lake Rogerene turned brown after stormwater runoff escaped the nearby construction site for The Villages housing development in Roxbury
ROXBURY, NJ – In what one area resident called an “environmental Armageddon,” dirt from a massive construction project in Landing was washed away by recent storms and ended up in Lake Rogerene, leaving the water brown and lake lovers livid.
The runoff came from the 161-home housing development called The Villages at Roxbury now being built off Shippenport Road in Roxbury, about a quarter mile away from Lake Rogerene, according to residents and officials. Some homeowners in the lake community, which lies mostly in Mount Arlington, angrily demanded action at Tuesday’s meeting of the Roxbury Mayor and Council.
Among them was Lake Rogerene Civic Association Trustee Paula Danchuk, who brought aerial photos showing the condition of the 9-acre lake before and after last week’s heavy rains. The drone shots showed a once-clear lake turned to opaque tan by the storm runoff.

“We thought we had things in place that would protect Lake Rogerene,” Danchuck told the council. “But, obviously, it’s not working.”
The Villages at Roxbury project - including stormwater runoff prevention - was approved in 2007, but work didn’t begin until last year.
Early Morning Phone Call
Roxbury Township Manager John Shepherd said he was made aware of the situation late last week, noting the runoff came from heavy rain that started last Thursday evening. “Everybody who lives here knows how heavy that storm was that occurred, certainly not a common storm for us,” he said. “But it was a heavy storm. We have those.”
Shepherd said he was alerted to the problem at about 7:30 a.m. Friday by Mount Arlington Borough Administrator Carolyn Rinaldi. “She let me know there was a problem, and it needed to be looked at,” he said. “I let her know we’d look at it immediately.”
A consulting engineer for Roxbury went to the site as did inspectors from the Morris County Soil Conservation District (MCSCD), the agency that enforces the state Soil Erosion and Sediment Control Act. Shepherd said the MCSCD, by 11 a.m. Friday, told the contractors building The Villages “what needed to be repaired.”
He said the inspectors found that “something wasn’t properly blocked, one of the outlet structures, or it just broke loose due to the volume of water.” Shepherd said the broken system has been repaired, but he noted the MCSCD also “recommended some additional measures along the outlet … to provide additional controls for any sedimentation.”
'Like An Open Strip Mine'
Mount Arlington Borough Councilman Andrew Cangiano, a Lake Rogerene resident, attended the Roxbury council meeting and confirmed that “everybody jumped right on” the matter as soon as they were alerted.
“It’s a very unique situation,” he said. “You have a very, very large construction site … It’s like an open strip mine. It’s just a huge, huge project.”
Cangiano said the soil erosion prevention system that broke during the storm was little more than “an old piece of plywood” and he stressed that “the results were catastrophic.”
He called for “some redundancy … a little resiliency” in the project’s runoff prevention. “Because if the one piece of plywood breaks free in another heavy storm, we don’t know what the effects of this is going to be on the lake. We just can’t afford another break,” Cangiano said.
Roxbury Mayor Jim Rilee said he was “a little surprised” that the MCSCD allowed The Villages at Roxbury builders to have vulnerable erosion prevention systems in place. “They’re usually a pain in the butt sometimes with what they require,” he commented.
Rilee asked that research be done to see if The Villages at Roxbury's escrow account can be used to help remediate the situation. The Villages at Roxbury is being built by Stone Water Holding, a preferred developer for Ryan Homes. The company could not immediately be reached for comment.
During the meeting’s public session, Lake Rogerene resident Andrew Danchuck tried to express the seriousness of the matter, noting that the lake is “the centerpiece” of the Lake Rogerene community.
“It’s gorgeous,” he said. “And it’s being ripped apart right now. What happened here: The Villages committed environmental Armageddon against Lake Rogerene. It’s beyond horrific what’s happening.”
