News Updates as of 5 November 2009

  • The Matawan Aberdeen Public Library now has its own blog! You'll want to establish an RSS feed and keep up with events at the library.

  • MRHS Soccer: According to Manley's Blog, Raritan was dominant without Pat Langan, who was sick today and missed the game. Matawan had a nice flurry in the middle of the first half and had the shots at 6-2 in favor of Raritan at one point, but Raritan outshot them 20-3 the rest of the way. I can see why Matawan was a tough team this season, but Raritan is on a different level than the rest of A Central.
  • MRHS Football: The Sentinel reports on the Trojans' upcoming match with Matawan this weekend: The Trojans will look to win their seventh straight game when they take on Matawan this weekend. Bishop Ahr heads into the contest averaging 37 points per game while the Matawan defense is only allowing seven per contest. Obviously, something will have to give when the two teams lock horns. "Our offensive line is going to have to take control once again," Hilliard said. "If our line can control the line of scrimmage, we can manage the clock." Matawan also enters this week's game 6-1 on the season. The Trojans will need to tighten up their defense if it plans to be 7-1 by this time next week. "We didn't tackle well the other night," Hilliard said. "Matawan is another fast team, and we'll need to do much better bringing their guys down to prevent them from breaking big plays." NJ.com expects Matawan to place high in the seeding for Central Jersey Group 2 in the Shore Conference.
  • Former MAMS principal Walter Uszenski to become Spotswood school superintendent, according to MyCentralJersey.com.
  • The Independent reported on a state grant received by Aberdeen Township to investigate a Church Street site for possible hazardous waste.
  • Operation Medicine Cabinet will be held 14 November.  It is an effort to get expired and unused prescription drugs out of people's homes before they are found and abused. Note that teenagers abuse prescription drugs found around the home at an alarming rate. Disposing of drugs properly can also keep medicines out of our water table. Aberdeen Township will participate in this collection event.
