The Watchung Hills Wolverines 8U baseball team added some excitement to the summer's langour with the team's run for a state title.
Despite their youth, the players showed their skill in capturing the New Jersey title July 27. The team had several come-from-behind victories on the way to the trophy, but got off to a big start in the first inning of the title game, beating Maplewood-South Orange 10-4.
When the Township Committee meets at 7 p.m. Thursday, committee members will take time to recognize the outstanding achievement by the team.
The committee will also consider renewing what's becoming an annual tradition: applying for a grant with the Federal Emergency Management Administration for a low-power radio transmitter.
Such a system is high on the priorities of the Office of Emergency Management, and the township has been submitting applications for several years.
Officials hope this year's application may be more successful in light of the difficulties communicating with residents experienced after last year's Hurricane Irene and the Oct. 29 snowstorm following a nor'easter.
One of matter on the agenda has been of interest for many residents: the committee will discuss the proposed ordinance to set limits on farm animals.
