Butler Students Graduate, Red Looks For a Home
A look back at the week's top stories.
I was pleased to be joined by a very special four-legged friend in this week's Week in Review introduction video. Red is a Pitbull mix, named appropriately for his beautifully-colored coat, and is getting old (he's between 8 and 10 years old according to volunteers). He's looking for a warm home to comfortably live in for the rest of his life.
But Red's quest for a home is not a top story from this week-he's been living at the Kinnelon Animal Shelter for many years. Contact Tri-boro Animal Welfare if you'd like to adopt him.
Butler High School seniors graduated this week after an outdoor ceremony Monday evening.
Bloomingdale counselor and former teacher Maria Picone resigned from the school district for a position in Prospect Park. School board members and Superintendent Dr. Fredda Rosenberg thanked her for working with the district and said she will be missed.
The Butler Council heard from two borough residents about their concerns over the cost of police presence during Michael Vick's autograph signing last Sunday. Mayor Robert Alviene said safety was a top priority during the event and that the borough had to protect its people.
The Borough of Kinnelon celebrated acquiring the Weber Tract and preserving more open space during an event at Silas Condict Park Thursday.
This week we brought you a video profile of Greg Kassar, the chef who's cooking up Penne alla Vodka at the snack shack at the Kinnelon recreation field on Boonton Avenue.
