BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - There’s something new and shiny in downtown Berkeley Heights, at the corner of Springfield and Plainfield avenues - a digital sign.

Township Administrator John Bussiculo asked residents to check out the sign during the June 12 council meeting. It was running the sample program, which provided a preview of what residents might see on the sign. 

A donation from the Jim Reilly family, in memory of Jim Reilly made this digital sign possible.  The sign will be remotely controlled, which means Tom Barton won't need to go out in all kinds of weather to hang the letters on the old sign, said Bussiculo. Now all the messages will be created in a warm office.

Sleep out at Covenant House

June 18, 2018

I can enjoy the same movies over and over like it were the first time to see them.  My kids roll their eyes at this.  Well, many unimaginable things happen as you become a certain age, and you tend to learn to accept those things graciously as gift.   But I remember the movie “The Blind Side.”  Until I saw that movie, I didn’t know homeless children ...

What's Hot and What's Not

Summer is a great time to take a step back, sip a cool beverage, and take a look at what’s going on in the world of college admissions.  Departments use the summer to evaluate how their year went and plan on any changes they want to make for the fall.  Did they over-enroll? Under-enroll?  What application materials were useful to them?  Which were redundant or time ...
