EDISON, NJ -- All three Wardlaw-Hartridge varsity winter teams prevailed at the third annual Winter Games on Jan. 6. Students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends attended the event, which was run by the Booster Club.

Junior Priya Golding of North Plainfield led the girls’ basketball team to its first victory of the season, scoring 19 points to fuel a 33-14 win over East Brunswick Vo-Tech. In the second game of the girl-boy doubleheader, Junior Shalon Wallace of Irvington netted 16 points to propel the W-H boys to a 51-40 win. Freshmen Logan D’Amore of Scotch Plains and Zach Brown of South Plainfield and junior Jason Yin of Scotch Plains won two individual events apiece to power the swim team to a 108-50 victory over Perth Amboy.

The Booster Club sold refreshments and W-H apparel and gear to the many fans in attendance. They also sponsored an exciting half-court shot fundraiser which saw many attempts hit the backboard and rim, but none went through the net for the $50 gift card prize.

Young alumni returned to their alma mater to participate in an Alumni vs. Boosters and Coaches basketball game in the evening. The alumni held off a late rally and posted a 46-36 victory against a team of coaches, staff, alumni and Booster Club members. Ian English of Cranford, a graduate from the Class of 2011, hit four 3-pointers and led all scorers with 12 points for the winners.

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
