Freshman Observation of a Post-Prom Mishap

MEMORIALThe Mountainside 7-Eleven set up a makeshift memorial to longtime employee John Regenthal, who passed away last week. Patrons have shared memories of Mr. Regenthal and have donated about $2,500 (as of press time) to help pay for his funeral expenses.

NOW YOU SEE IT...NOW YOU DON'TOn Tuesday morning, the former home of James and Marilyn Lucas at 2377 Richmond Street was demolished to make room for an enlargement of Jerseyland Park to house a new soccer field. The added space will allow a full-size soccer field and a full-depth outfield for baseball. The town purchased the property a year ago.

Government Reform Thoughts

Attorneys in government seem to have special laws and treatment for themselves when they commit a crime, break the law and/or violate the public trust. Take Michael Nifong for example, the nefarious district attorney in the Duke lacrosse case. His punish is disbarment by his peers. We believe he should face the criminal justice system and go to jail if found guilty - just like all others who are not attorneys would. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
