BALLOONS OF HOPEParticipants in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk gather on the Presbyterian Church lawn on Mountain Avenue in Westfield. The approximately 700 walkers hold balloons – white ones for survivors and red for supporters – commemorating lives touched by blood cancers. The event raised more than $96,000 to help find a cure for the cancers, according to Gina Panas of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Government Reform Thoughts

Under the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, telecommunications utility 4Connections is entitled to the right of way to set up its fiber-optic cables throughout municipalities, such as Westfield and Mountainside. The company has made presentations at council meetings in those two municipalities asking for permission to run cables, but the towns are powerless to say "no." We need legislation at the state level that will give our local elected and appointed officials the power to reject applications that do not serve the best interests of their communities. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
