Student Says It is Hard To Find Sports Role Models

"When it absolutely must get there."

LOOKING BACK OVER TIME...Sharing many great football memories on Thanksgiving Day are, left to right: former Raider football player Andrew Pavoni (Class of 2002), Scotch Plains Police Chief Brian Mahoney, retired detective Carl Sicola, Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School head football coach Len Zanowicz (1968) and SPFHS Athletic Director Robert Harmer. The game was the last to be played on a field that will feature artificial turf for the 2008 season as the result of a bond ordinance. After the game, football players were able to take home squares of the old field in styrofoam containers.

WE'VE GOT SPIRIT...Westfield High School cheerleaders and friends show their school pride as they drive down East Broad Street as part of last Wednesday’s annual homecoming parade and Powder Puff football game.

Government Reform Thoughts

While Comcast and Verizon have been wresting with how to give all subscribers the ability to watch local-access channels, Scotch Plains has taken matters into its own hands and now offers streaming video of town council meetings "on demand" on scotchplainsnj.com. Scotch Plains has proved that municipalities have the power to do this. We hope that other government agencies - at the local, county and state levels - will follow their example. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
