sports DePaul Catholic defeats Spirit in state title game, 42-0

DePaul, featuring the nation’s top junior running back Kareem Walker, beat Holy Spirit as expected 42-0 to win the Non-Public II state title for the second consecutive year. Walker effortlessly ran through Holy Spirit’s line looking more like Shady McCoy than a high school junior. That’s no knock on the Spartans defense but rather a tribute to a great back, who is being recruited by Notre Dame and more than 30 other national college football powers.

In defeat Spirit makes History in State Title appearances

elks No, I didn't forget the Army-Navy game in last week's column. I wanted to save it as this week's headliner.  But first let's backtrack a few days to Sunday.

This year's Memorial Service was shameful. With a membership of 867, you mean to tell me that only 10 members plus the officers were able to attend to honor our absent brothers?  I guess Yogi Berra got it right when asked by a reporter why he went to all his friend's services, he said, "I figure that if I don't go to theirs, they certainly won't come to mine."  Amen Yogi.

Atlantic County government’s efforts to negotiate its union contracts during the current economic downturn have achieved cost-effective results, with salary increases limited to 2 percent or less.

Most recently the county filed for interest arbitration with Fraternal Order of Police 34 corrections officers after more than two years of unresolved negotiations. In his decision, the arbitrator cited the fact that the county had established a pattern of negotiating, based on 15 previous negotiations since 2011, that should not be changed. The arbitrator also rejected a number of union proposals regarding overtime payment and other issues that would have created additional financial difficulties for the county following a severe loss of ratables.
