ROXBURY, NJ – Forty former Roxbury High School hockey players will take to the ice again next month in a fundraiser game designed to help the younger generation.

To be played at Aspen Ice in Randolph on April 22, the game will be a Roxbury versus Roxbury contest featuring players from Roxbury High School graduating classes of 1990 through 2012, said 2001 graduate Phil Torr of Succasunna.

Torr, 34, is a member of the Roxbury High School Ice Hockey Alumni Association. He and others in the group have been working diligently for about four months to put together the game, he said.

“We’ve been kicking the tires on this for a couple years and finally we said, ‘Hey, let’s do it,’” Torr said.

The players will chip in $45 each and money left over - after paying for ice time - will be given to Roxbury youth hockey teams, Torr said.

The association is hoping players get friends and family to show up. It is also inviting the general public. Admission will cost $5 and kids will be free, Torr said. The first period is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

Torr said the game will be competitive. He noted many former Roxbury players, himself included, continue to play.

“This is going to be a legitimate game,” he said. “This isn’t going be some guy touching skates for the first time in 10 years. Everyone who is playing has at least played in the last couple of years.”

There will be three 20-minute periods and at least two referees on the ice, Torr said.

Necessary Discussion and Debate of Addressing School Violence

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

As of late, due to most disturbing acts of violence against children in our schools, there is much vigorous debate regarding gun control and protection of our children and grand-children.

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
