Congratulations to Cooper University Hospital and Rowan University. They're holding a celebration today in Camden to mark their partnership to create a medical school. Gov. Brendan Byrne promised South Jersey a four-year medical school 30 years ago. But it took that long to get the right mixture of fate, politics, and economics needed to finally make it happen.

Maureen Hicks, Adrienne Evans, and Barbara Funkhouser believe it's never too early to introduce babies to books. Especially when the babies are early, too. "The more language they hear, the more knowledge they have," says Hicks, leader of a group of volunteers who read to and cuddle premature infants at Cooper University Hospital. A retired Westville elementary schoolteacher, Hicks, 55, is president of Story Storks (storystorks.org), the nonprofit she, Evans, and Funkhouser founded in 2012.
