School cancelled again 2/20

I need to vent my frustration again against Hackettstown School district and whoever is in charge of making the cancellation decisions. Once again the schools were cancelled ahead of time, the snow won’t start until later. The safety of the kids is paramount but seriously why cancel? An early dismissal would have been fine. When you cancel school it not only affects the kids but the parents who have to call out. Please start making better judgement calls.

New Indoor Play Center?

I noticed while driving up Main Street, there is a new business coming in which looks like an indoor play center for kids! Does anyone have more information on this, and hiring ages?

Title of informative game show

Remember a show, aired in the 90’s in which contestants had to identify odd objects. It was more informative than humorous, brief description to start before providing info and history after the guesses, maybe on a PBS station.

Diesel Mechanic

Tried searching the forum but this didn't appear to be covered. I'm looking for a place that services diesel engines, specifically 6.0 liter Ford (2006).

Any recommendation would be appreciated. I know I can always head to Smith but prefer to deal with someone in town if there is anyone. Need general maintenance and someone that can to routine service (Oil, tune up maybe recommend performance enhancements for long trips.)
