Car Crashes into House Near High School
A car crashed into a residence on Valley Street near the corner of Parker Avenue across from Columbia High School Friday afternoon shortly before school dismissal, injuring the driver and causing minor damage to the building, according to police and fire officials.
Construction should begin "any day now" on a new 7-Eleven store located at the corner of Valley Street and Parker Avenue across from Columbia High School, according to the developer's attorney.
"We are ready to go, as soon as permits are pulled," said Louis Rago, attorney for Ali Enterprises, LLC.
On the week of its second birthday, Cupcake Corral owners Joe Ramaikas and Felice Ecker publish a letter to the community searching for a business partner to help them expand to become a full-service cafe.
Township Will Rent Lights for Memorial Park
The Maplewood Township Committee approved a resolution on Tuesday to rent temporary lighting for the south field at Memorial Park, at a cost not to exceed $28,000. The lights would enable local sports teams such as Cougar Soccer to hold night practices.
The resolution passed 4-1, with Committeeman Marlon Brownlee dissenting. Brownlee cited concerns about the large range of the cost estimate, which was between $16,000 - 28,000. "It's not an insignificant amount of money," he said.
