Favorite Non Super Bowl Day memory

Mine was either 1999 or 2000. I forget the year. It was in Hackettstown at my place and I had a dear friend over. We spent the day together and watched "16 Great Hours of Andy Griffith" on TBS. We had a ball. Had some beverages and made Shephards Pie. We had a wonderful day together and never watched a single play of the Super Bowl.

At least I have some good memories.

Buffalo Wings for Super Bowl Sunday

Where is your favorite place for buffalo wings? Not looking to make my own. Personally think Marley"s are a little on the large/fatty side for me. Wondering where you all prefer wings?

Cars for Cash service

Has anyone utilized this online service? If yes, I'd like to hear your thoughts. Is it as simple as they say? Do they give you cash? I just chatted online with someone from the site and they said they would give me a guaranteed check when they picked up the car and take care of the paperwork. Not sure what paperwork is involved besides signing over the title of the vehicle and taking my plates off before they tow it away.

Ashley's Restaurant

Wife and I ate at Ashley' s for first time last night. It was terrific! Extensive Latin American menu. Great and abundant food for a reasonable price. It's BYOB. With this, Marley's, Topo, Mezza House and Stella G's, no need to stray from Main St. when you're hungry.

Town plows hitting mailboxes

I have seen a lot of mailboxes hit after the recent storms . Does Independence Twp. do anything to reimburse for this? I found mine hit this morning after this little storm.

Sheet metal for heat shield for wood stove

Finally getting ready for the new wood stove install and we're looking for a store/business where we can buy a sheet of 24 gauge sheet metal of a specific size to use as a heat shield.
Would the company on Willow Grove that does the railings- I can't recall the name- be a possible resource?

Hackettstown High School Group 3 Sports

Increased population entering the high school,I understand that the high school is moving into group 3 competition. Also Newton,Lenape Valley,and some of the sussex county schools could be dropping to group 1.It seems Sparta is holding its own,as well as High Point,and Vernon! This should really open up the league in football,as well as other sports.
