Street is now 'Veterans Way'

Hillsborough dedicated the main roadway into the municipal complex as "Veterans Way" in a ceremony Friday.

The road separates the parking lot fronting on South Branch Road from the municipal complex. It appropriately passes in front of the township’s Garden of Honor, a cluster of monuments to those who died or were injured in battle in World War II and the Korean War, as well as Purple Heart recipients.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Weekend benefits will aid Princeton non-profits
Season-sational I recently had a craving for fudge and of course that led to a trip to Robinson's in Skillman at the Montgomery Shopping Center on Route 206. Their chocolate fudge is always terrific, but they had a few seasonal flavors that I hadn't tried before, and they will provide samples. If you like pumpkin, you need to stop whatever you are doing and go there. Now. No, right now, and try the pumpkin fudge. It's as if someone took the best pumpkin pie filling you have ever had and turned it into fudge. Visit them online at www.robinsonschocolates.com, or just go there for a taste. Read more...
