News Updates as of 23 May 2010

  • As of 3:06 pm, Brookdale Community College is winning 2-0 in the first inning over Monroe in the 2010 NJCAA Division III National Softball Tournament championship game at Rochester, Minnesota.
  • Matawan boys track team was leading Central Jersey II after 7 events at the NJSIAA Sectional Track & Field Championships at Tinton Falls on Friday, per APP. Dylan Spadaccini won the 400 m hurdles; Tyrone Smith took long jump; Andre Hodge won shot put; and Brian Ramcheran outpaced the field in the 400 m.
  • Texas State Board of Education continues to memorialize its conservative social bent, affecting our schools' text books for years to come. I've marked the New York Times article on the subject for you, but many others exist.
  • Be alert to the security concern that public copiers and fax machines now have hard disks that can store copies of your documents. Read this discussion at NYTimes, which cites this CBS News video.
  • Friends of the Matawan Aberdeen Public Library have learned that the library's elevator is still not operating because Trenton didn't immediately authorize the work permits, even though the elevator company asked for expedited permit approval and the money was overnighted to Trenton. The state has 20 days to handle the permit processing and provide the permits. Work is scheduled to begin on 28 May 2010.
  • MAPL Friends will soon be collecting book donations again. The book sale is ongoing across from the front desk.
  • I've heard that the Keyport Waterfront Grand Opening was relatively lightly attended this afternoon. Maybe it started out slow because of all the inevitable political speeches? The music didn't start right away, except for some bagpipes. I imagine things will pick up once the music gets going. Food starts around 4 pm.
