SUMMIT, NJ - Several hundred folks came to Lawton C. Johnson Middle School the evening of November 18 to witness the latest, shining example of what makes Summit, Summit -- the integration and collaboration of various groups and publics rallying together to lift up one of the town's very own.

In this case, it was the Hilltop City's first responders -- the Summit Police Department, the Summit Fire Department, and the Summit Volunteer First Aid Squad -- donning basketball uniforms and joining the Summit High School Football Team to play a couple of games of hoops, with all admissions proceeds from the event benefiting the effort to support Coach Leroy Horn.

Horn, who was in attendance and briefly addressed the crowd before the first game, is a longtime resident and football and baseball coach to many who recently suffered a stroke and, unfortunately, is now recovering from cancer surgery. The resulting hospitalization and developing medical complications have proven to be overwhelming, and the community have rallied to help him through a series of initiatives.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
