News Updates as of 6 October 2009

  • Matawan is apparently famous for the design of its local Texaco gas station, according to On the Road with Jeff Bressler.
  • RCM Group is seeking an extension of its deadline to build 132 rental units on County Road and condos on Route 34, according to APP. Oddly, the article doesn't say whether the extension was granted. RCM's lawyers say their client is in a mediation process with Aberdeen on the latter's COAH program and that the process should be resolved in October. They are asking for a three-month extension to 31 December. The plan is a dead letter if it continues to propose construction of all COAH rentals in Cliffwood.
  • Parents of Special People, Inc is sponsoring a speaker series this fall, per APP. Melinda Jennis, president of Pathways for Exceptional Children, will speak on Wed 7 October at the Cambridge Park School at One Crest Way.
  • Charles F. Vuotto Jr., of Tonneman, Vuotto & Enis in Matawan, is cited as an expert on family law in an article about divorce during hard times at NJ.com. He chairs the family law section for the State Bar Association.
  • Matawan Huskies' MacArthur Underwood and Jared Allison are highlighted once again as weekend football heroes by the local media. NJ.com provides their impressive stats. Scanning the Scene provides a fuller account. The big game of week 3 was the blowout victory by Matawan over Raritan(30-7). In a game most people thought would be a close, the Huskies led from start to finish and proved that they are the real deal in 2009. Holding Raritan ace RB Jessie Raymond to 75 yards and Notre Dame bound Bennett Jackson to 5 catches for 57 yards, the Huskies used their outstanding QB Jared Allison( 1TD run & 1TD pass) and McArthur Underwood(82 run for TD) as big play weapons in a statement type game of the early season. Matawan now gets to revenge a 2008 loss to RBC, which still bothers Matawan. Look for them to take care of business this Friday at RBC.
  • Matawan Advisor provides an introduction to the Matawan Dems running for borough council.
  • Matawan Rotary Club is active in the community, per Independent. They provided backpacks and dictionaries for needy kids in the Matawan Aberdeen Regional School District (MARSD). Thanks to Target, Kohl's, and Staples for the donated backpacks and Columbia, Provident, and Sovereign  banks for the school supplies.
