    Last night, a friend shared with me a picture he saw on social media. It was a gal sitting in one of the "windows" of what looked like the paper mill at Harrisville & asked me to confirm his thoughts on the location. I agreed to his assumption. He then messaged the person who posted the photo &...

    Rte 542 bridge over the Wading River

    Energy Drinks

    While taking a hike along Fleming Pike yesterday I noticed something while picking up trash.....If one consumes an energy drink, why do they have to throw the can out the window? Shouldn't they have the energy to dispose of it properly?

    Slag in Deptford?

    I was working in Deptford recently and came upon this. Anyone have a clue why it might wind up in Deptford? Perhaps it was taken from a furnace site years ago? (That is, if it really is slag?) Mods......feel free to move this to the "Slag Heap".
