Banking Scam

I recently received a bank statement from Customers Bank. I do not have an account with that bank. I looked it up on Google, and it appears to be a legitimate bank in Pennsylvania. I also googled the phone number on the statement and it also seems to be registered to that bank. There is no money showing as being on deposit in this "account".
Today I received a second monthly statement, again with a zero balance, with the notation "Account Closed" on it.
I originally thought this was some creative way of duping me into opening an... More

Hello Townies! Does anyone know why the parking lot on the corner of Valentine

It was nice to see all that turned out for this event. Great food samples with the soup contest, great discounts to the shops, and of course great beer. Hackettstown bid did a great job with it.

Local TV repair service

Looking for references on TV repair services. LG tech support remotely diagnosed my tv and confirmed it needs a repair. My Costco Visa extended warranty will cover repair services but it's up to me to find a service.

Per Google, I found:
- Mike's TV Shop - Saxton Lane, Hackettstown
- Tinos TV Repair LLC - Whitehouse Station
- Warren Sontos TV Repair - Denville
- Electronics Service Unlimited - Newton

All seem to have good reviews albeit the number of reviews is really low.

Passing on the right on Rt 57.

Despite my handle, I do obey the traffic laws. I don’t think they’ve changed much in the last 40 years (shhh…dating myself). As far as I know, passing on the right is illegal, in most cases. Definitely on Rt. 57. It’s very dangerous….especially by Taco Bell and ShopRite. Yet, I still see ALOT of drivers still doing it. I stop. The folks behind get angry because they can’t see the person in front of me, waiting to make their left, or they don’t know the law. Anyway, I’m not risking serious injuries just to catch up with the “passing drivers”... More

Another Found Cat

I hesitate to post this because there seem to be so many "found" cats lately.
But, just in case someone is looking for their fur baby.... I have a long-haired, pale yellow cat hanging around my yard in the Highlands in Independence. I don't know if it's male or female. He/she has been here for at least a month to six weeks. He/she is very skittish and won't let me get within 20 feet. But he/she does come to eat the food I put out.
When (if) I manage to trap him, I will take him to a vet... More
