Morris Canal Greenway

So does anyone know what has or is happening to preserve Hackettstown's portion of the Morris Canal. We have FLORENCE W. KUIPERS MEMORIAL PARK but I don't have a clue where or what that is.

A joke or for REAL? (Items in classifieds)

I came across these 2 items for sale. Are they really worth that much? I am just curious. I tend to think I know a lot about antiques but never have seen this


I have seen these bottles before in Jamaica on vacation many moons ago. I think I saw them for under $50.


If these are real I apologize now but I am really curious. Anyone out there have different info.

FOUND Grey/white intact male cat, Petersburg Rd.

FOUND Grey/white intact male cat, Petersburg Rd. Is anyone missing a cat near Petersburg Road? There is this really adorable stray who has made a bush in my yard his home. He meows a lot.
