With the township Board of Education shooting for a 2 percent increase in the local schools tax levy for next year, school officials and board members are ready to sharpen their pencils and come up with a budget for the 2014-15 school year. The first overview presentation is anticipated for next Tuesday's board meeting.
With David Bird, 55, of neighboring Long Hill Township missing for almost a week, law enforcement agencies widened their scope in the search, and big media picked up on the disappearance of one of their own. Earlier in the week, divers and helicopters searched the area, including nearby towns, and Long Hill police said they had no idea of how Bird had vanished, or why.
Parents of children in the Warren Township schools system were invited to learn about the brave new world of education that their children are experiencing, with sessions for all starting this week, and continuing into next week.
