Westfield Legend Gary Kehler Dies; Coach Was ‘One of a Kind’

RUDOLPH RESTS…There were no reindeer, but Santa was still able to see children this past Saturday. A 12-car NJ Transit train picked up children, parents and grandparents in Westfield for a ride to Raritan and back with Santa Claus. Santa walked through the train with a group of elves and train volunteers handing out candy canes and taking pictures with riders. The promise of the two-hour trip filled the entire platform with people waiting for Santa to arrive.

Government Reform Thoughts

Salaries and benefits in New Jersey for local, county and state government officials, employees, teachers and commissions are out of control.
