FATHER AND SON...Bill Schwab of Westfield and his son, Matthew, shoot a commercial Saturday at the Westfield Train Station. Mr. Schwab commented, “It’s funny, I’ve art directed photography all over the world. Matthew and I shot a campaign in Spain, Denmark and the UK earlier this year. For 20 years, this was the first time I’ve been able to shoot in Westfield. It was great.”

BEHIND CLOSED DOORSThree luxury automobiles worth over $100,000 are housed in Westfield after being confiscated by the sheriff’s department then auctioned and sold for a minimum bid of $300 to Sheriff Officer Christopher Coon as the only qualifying bidder. Mr. Coon is the stepson of Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich. The parties will appear in court on September 8.

We urge immediate passage of Sheriff of Nottingham legislation as proposed by New Jersey Assemblyman Eric Munoz whereby public auction of confiscated property would require: notice of the date, time and place of the public sale, together with a description of the items to be sold; the conditions of the sale, would be required to be published in a legal newspaper for at least seven days, but not more than 14 days after the last publication of notice. In addition, it would require a minimum bid of at least 80 percent of market value of the property to be auctioned, and it will include an “insider trading” provision precluding anyone from having prior notice of such auction from bidding on the items. See editorial for explanation. - See Year-to-Date Reform thoughts.
