SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Following Saturday's blizzard, roads in Scotch Plains continue to be cleared. Major arteries, such as Park Ave., Terrill Road, and Front Street, are cleared, but a number of streets await plow trucks.

According to SPPD Sgt. Ernie Hernandez, the following streets are school pick up and drop off areas on Tuesday morning. If your live on these streets, please try to keep your cars off the streets so plow crews can clear the street from "curb to curb."

  • Evergreen Ave.
  • Redwood Road
  • Homestead Terrace
  • Edgewood Terrace
  • Church Ave. (especially btw Park Ave and Forest Road)
  • Willow Ave.
  • Kevin Road
  • Aberdeen Drive
  • Evelyn St.
  • Trenton Ave.

"While parking your car along any roadway, if you see that your car is blocking the lane of travel, you may not park there," Sgt. Hernandez explains. "The township does not need to post signs or place cones; any car blocking the roadway will be ticketed and removed. Additionally, as mentioned in prior posts, clearing the sidewalk in front of your property is the homeowner's responsibility."

"Clearing two feet of snow along over 80 miles of roadway along over 500 streets takes time," Sgt. Hernandez added. "Please give our DPW time and space to work."

The Scotch Plains Police Dept. is being overwhelmed with snow removal requests, and the calls are tying up emergency phone lines. SPPD requests that residents please call the DPW Hotline with plowing requests and complaints at (908) 233-6707.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
