PERSPECTIVE...The proposed Central Avenue cell tower, which Councilman Jim Foerst said would likely be voted down, would measure 140 feet. Above, left to right, are: Westfield’s North Avenue Christmas tree, measuring between 75 and 85 feet; Westfield’s East Broad Street Presbyterian Church steeple, measuring 122 feet, and Scotch Plains’ Fire Station Number Two cell phone tower, measuring 150 feet.

BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS...Festive wreaths adorn lampposts in Fanwood around the train station in anticipation of the holiday season that follows Thanksgiving.

We agree with Assemblyman John Burzichelli and State Senator Stephen Sweeney that deceptive advertising and cumbersome mail-in rebates programs should be banned in New Jersey, such as in legislation in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Alabama, Maryland, California, Missouri and New York. We urge the state legislature to act on this and similar deception matters. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
