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.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
