State of NJ craps on Great Meadows again!

Many of you may not know this but the state of NJ is going to create vernal pools in the muck lands of Great Meadows near Alphano Rd and close to Allamuchy.

The township has been totally against this. The town master plan has this area remaining agriculture as I understand it. As residents of the area we don't get a vote on this. Aside from the agriculture end there is the Zika virus that the township is very concerned about. The state tells us to not have standing water around and then they turn around and... More

HL'ers get togethers

Just curious if the H'town Lifers still get together occasionally for happy hours, meals or fun. If I remember correctly, this was a popular activity a few years ago.

Lost brand new "Hurry Cane"

My mom was at Shop Rite this morning (Wednesday, April 27) and left her brand new black "Hurry Cane" in the shopping cart! When she got home and realized it was missing, she immediately called Shop Rite. But so far, no one has turned it in.

Please, if you know anyone who suddenly has a brand new Hurry Cane, please urge them to return it to the courtesy desk. Mom is 85 years old, and I just bought this new cane for her last week!

Urgent recommendations needed for transmission work

Jrsemom had to rescue me from the side of the road last night. The old van's transmission decided it didn't like its fluid anymore and vomited it up all over Continental Drive. Of course, it was 9:30PM, pitch black and in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks to Officer Laver of the NJ Park Police for hanging around with me until she showed up.

Now it's time to find someone to fix it. I'm pretty sure it's just a gasket/seal/hose as there was no warning and did start to work after adding fluid into it. Just leaks everywhere. PLEASE let it be... More

2016 Thunderstorm Thread

A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for our area until 9:00 pm. There is some heavy stuff on the radar already.

We had a real doozy of a storm roll through Oxford around 2:30 this morning. Did it hit H'town as well? I have no idea which direction it was traveling.
