10/24/14 Accident on Waterloo Road

I was driving near Saxton Falls at about 5 P.M. and there was a power and light pole sheared in half along side the road. No wrecked vehicles in the area. There was a cleanup taking place around the damaged transformers from the pole.

New York Gets First Ebola Case

Figure it's time to start a new thread to help spread the histeria.

But don't worry he had limited contact with people because no one takes the subway, uses Uber, or goes to bowling alleys.

Nearest Kmart-Off Route 10 in Dover to close :(

I've only been there once and I had no problems with it. It is very sad because you must remember that all the employees will need to find new jobs. Best of luck to them.

Hackettstown's history questions

I love history. I love hearing stories and knowing what kind of things happened in the areas I live in. Does anyone have any links or photos of Hackettstown's past? From any time -- 10 years ago or stories that happened hundreds of years ago...

Also, when did the Hackettstown Diner open/close? When was it torn down? Why did it go out of business?

Window Installation

Does anyone have experience installing new windows in their home - I currently have vinyl windows throughout, but of very low quality (builder grade). Cold air is very noticeable and they seem to not hide outside noise too well. Just wondering how big of a job it is to replace windows yourself - if you buy them from Home Depot. I want to remove the entire window frame - not a fan of keeping the same frame or renewal by Andersen. Thanks.

Did anybody go to the meeting? I had to work and was curious about what was said - especially about all the changes and the punishments (like Sat detentions, etc) that have been implemented.

Why so many kids with brain tumors in Hackettstown

On another post it says 4200 kids a year in the us are diagnosed with brain/spinal cancerous rumors. I know of 3 kids in our area in the last year and half. Is that statistically high?
