MORRIS COUNTY, NJ - Thirty-five runners from the Berkeley Heights WolfPack Track Club were among nearly 600 athletes that competed at the State Junior Olympics Championships on Sunday, Nov. 1, at Central Park of Morris County. This was one of the biggest and most competitive meets in years with several course records broken. Eight runners from the WolfPack Track Club finished in the top 20 from their Age Division advancing them to the Regional Junior Olympics in Black Creek Park, North Chili, NY on Nov. 22.

Coach Steve SanAntonio said, “The other WolfPack runners that did not place in the top-20 put in great efforts and nearly made the cut. This is an extremely young team with very little experience in training and competing. But what they lack in experience they make up with a big heart. With a little more time, I see a great future for our team members. We grow them slow for a sustained future”.

Coach Jen SanAntonio said, “I and our coaching staff are so proud of the children and we look forward to another successful season next year. Our joy comes from the success and smiles that comes from the children, and we do that one step at a time, one day at a time, and one month at a time. All the moments are relished and that’s the recipe for success”.

Colleen Mahr Has Paid Her Dues, Earned Peoples’ Trust, and Left a Track Record of Success

February 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

As a 26-year-old Scotch Plains resident who cares more about the well-being of our town than about local politics, I am extremely disappointed that the Scotch Plains Democratic Committee leadership has decided to abandon Colleen Mahr in her run for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.

Mahr, who as Mayor of Fanwood for 15 years has worked closely with Scotch Plains ...

We Need More Women Like Colleen Mahr in Municipal, County and State Government

Dear Editor:

I’m proud to support Colleen Mahr for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee  (UCDC) and am encouraging my Scotch Plains peers to join me.

I was a first time candidate wanting to make a difference in my hometown of Scotch Plains, when Mayor Mahr of neighboring Fanwood stepped in to help me campaign and win my election to be Councilwoman three years ago.

Democratic Party Would Be Making a Big Mistake by Not Recognizing Colleen Mahr's Talents

Dear Editor:

Mayor Colleen Mahr has been a valuable friend to the Township of Cranford. Whether it’s offering advice and assistance during devastating flood cleanup, supporting the Mayor's Council on the Rahway River, or her insight and assistance in meeting our affordable housing obligations, Mayor Mahr is always there for Cranford.

Colleen’s fairness and integrity is ...

As you recall in the fable, the hare brags about his ability to beat the tortoise and is overly confident about winning. In the investment world, the hare is someone who thinks he or she is great at selecting “winners” and avoiding “losers.” The ...
