NO LOVEThe Westfield Police Department’s detective bureau is investigating two separate incidents of theft at the town’s Victoria’s Secret, pictured above during its Valentine’s Day campaign. Captain Clifford Auchter said that at this time it is unknown whether the thefts are related to each other or to two separate thefts at two other New Jersey Victoria’s Secret locations. Westfield’s store lost more than $16,000 in merchandise between the two incidents.

YOU’VE GOT EGGSTommy Hoy of Mountainside, the youngest of Robyn and Joseph Hoy’s six children, puts all his eggs in one basket at the borough’s Easter egg hunt last Saturday. Mountainside’s volunteer rescue squad sponsors the event.

Government Reform Thoughts

We believe that when government salary contracts (i.e. the teachers' contract in Scotch Plains-Fanwood) are signed, the final version of the contract must be produced with no modifications. Union members should not receive retroactive increases and pay hikes until the contract is finalized. The current system through which staff receive their increases offers no incentives to release the final contract to the public. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
