  • The Top of the Mountain

    I craned my neck as best I could, trying to see through the cloud cover during Monday’s Labor Day Parade, but I did not see a single vintage airplane or B-17 flying overhead. Parade Committee President Beth Caldwell cleared up the mystery for me, saying that last minute paperwork due to increased security could not be filed in time to schedule the planes this year, after all. Fortunately, there were plenty of wonderful distractions at ground level to alleviate any brief disappointment over the unexpected cancellation.

    Monroe Police Department Officers Todd Keeping and Mike Panza have been nominated for The Good Egg Award, and I say they fit the (duck) bill. Both officers are stationed at Sandy Hook School, located at Monroe’s Chalk Hill Middle School, and both have been supplying students with smiles by way of rubber ducks.
