FIRE FOUGHTWestfield Fire Chief Dan Kelly inspects a home’s charred remains after a Tuesday morning fire. The two-alarm blaze at the back of 965 Central Avenue required mutual aid from several other towns. One elderly female was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Rahway, but all four occupants are safe and the Westfield/Mountainside Chapter of the American Red Cross has relocated them.

Government Reform Thoughts

MERRY CHRISTMAS IRAQ...Members of the U.S. Army’s Third Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the Second Infantry Division serving in Iraq will receive special protective eyewear in time for Christmas, thanks to Westfield Rotarians. When hearing of the soldiers’ wish, a Rotarian fundraising committee, led by Joseph Biren, contacted Wiley X Eyewear in California to buy the equipment. Learning of the mission, the company generously donated the eyewear for the soldiers. Pictured above, Staff Sgt. James Ferrier in Iraq wishes everyone in Westfield a Merry Christmas and thank you.

 Develop Students’ Interests

Is New Jersey state government reaching a desperate stage? We think so. Rather than officials reforming the corruption and malfeasance plus curtailing their greed, some legislators are proposing selling off $billions of the public's assets, such as the NJ Turnpike, to continue fueling their avarice. Reform legislators in the minority and the public are outraged with the duplicity. What now? - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
