  • Residents show appreciation for the dog park

    If you peer between a soccer field and a baseball field near the east end of Overlook Park, you’ll see that the dog park in White Rock has been getting some major renovations — a sprinkler system has been installed, grass seeds have been planted and grass is starting to grow.
    What an excitement for us to see a beautiful place for our dogs to play in the near future.
    We want to express our sincere gratitude to Dick McIntyre, Parks Division manager and Jeff Humpton, Parks superintendent, for listening to our request and working diligently to plan these renovations in a timely and cost-effective manner.

  • This week we look at asset #24, bonding to school and how a young person needs to care about their school.
    I love that this asset falls at this time of the year because homecoming is upon us. This is the time when everybody is a Hilltopper.
    It doesn’t matter if you grew up here, graduated from here or have kids in the school system. Next week we all bleed green and gold when the ’Toppers take the field.
    I would love to bottle this week and carry it around all year.
    We need to have ’Topper spirit when we attend the homecoming game, when the girl’s volleyball team plays a game, when the Olions have a production, the Hilltalkers, debate and when the NJROTC, runs, shoots and drills their way through a competition.
