News Updates as of 6 June 2010

  • Permission for fishermen to park along Lakeshore Drive during off hours has been extended, per The Independent.
  • Rock n Music Idol competition finals will be held at the VFW in Cliffwood Beach on Sunday 6 June 2010 at 5 pm, according to NJ.com. (The newspaper mistakenly labels the competition as being based in Old Bridge. It is actually being held in the Aberdeen portion of Cliffwood Beach.)
  • Serious NY Eats reviewed Shanghai Bun, a restaurant near the Aberdeen McDonald's on Route 34. Chowhound readers gave it absolutely awful reviews for several years, but the most recent postings suggest the place is under new management and the food is much better. Might be worth checking again if you've written them off.
  • The Independent has a photo of some MRHS students warming up for the 40th NJ State Teen Arts Festival, which was held at Monmouth University on 27 May. Local finalists included the MRHS Dance Team and Aime Serrano and Jessie Zygmaniak in Visual Arts. The MRHS spring musical Curtains was also competing. Bernadette Complido's work was selected for the NJEA calendar.
  • The local food pantry is to benefit from an interfaith effort in Aberdeen, per APP.
  • The Matawan Aberdeen Regional School District is going to keep one of the two librarians it had planned to terminate due to budget cuts. The middle school librarian will work part time at the high school, according to several sources.
