HAZARD CLEANUPPetro Extrusion Technologies at 490 South Avenue in Garwood found a leaky barrel in a Fed-Ex delivery made to its facility on Tuesday afternoon, said Garwood Fire Chief Ed Silver. The barrel leaked a resin material of low flammability that is used with plastics. Buildings from 450 to 494 South Avenue were evacuated. Union County Hazmat and Garwood Police, Fire Department and First Aid responded to the scene.

GOT MILK?Fanwood’s last known dairy farmers, Walter and Gladdis Essex, display a bottle from a dairy product produced at their facility during Sunday’s grand opening of the Fanwood Museum. Prior to construction on Station Mews, workers found the bottle, which contained the Essex name. The family's tradition of dairy farming goes back generations.

Government Reform Thoughts

The Union County Freeholders last week eliminated more than a dozen advisory boards and committees. The action follows a proposal by the Citizens Campaign of Metuchen to open up the process of how the county fills these positions. The group reported that as of April there were 130 vacancies out of 652 positions on 51 boards and commissions. So we ask, did the county reach out to determine why these groups, such as the AIDS advisory board or the Americans with Disabilities Advisory Board, were not meeting? Or did the county decide they wanted to reduce the rate of vacancies the easy way - by simply eliminating them? - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
