BIG SPORTS WEEKEND...The Westfield High School boys swimming team returns home victorious on Sunday after winning another state championship. Fire trucks, rescue squad ambulance and police cars led the parade

The next several months will involve a tremendous battle - unfortunate, but necessary for us to right ourselves.

Editorial: Kudos to County Clerk for Discovering Error in Presidential Primary Results...Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi was double-checking election results from the February 5, New Jersey Presidential Primary when she kept coming up with errors on a handful of machines. The results between the machine cartridges and the paper backups showed discrepancies.

CALLING FOR HELP...William Mariani and a young neighbor were out early last Friday, clearing the sidewalk in front of Rossi Funeral Home on Westfield Avenue in Scotch Plains. The first real snow of the winter resulted in the closing of area schools and provided a fun playground for children.

Government Reform Thought: Now that Governor Jon Corzine has set an example by actually reducing spending by $500 million from last year, it is now time for our local school boards, municipal, and county governments to follow suit.  See Year-to-date Reform Thoughts.
