UPPER TOWNSHIP – The pitcher with no luck or the batter in a long slump will tell you that more often than not, baseball doesn’t teach you how to win, it teaches you how to lose.

Bob Allen, of Seaville, has worked for years to make sure that an important part of the history of America’s favorite pastime is not permanently lost. He has interviewed dozens of former Negro leagues baseball players, many in their 90s, one as old as 110, compiling more than 400 hours of video footage.

To the editor:

Thank you to Upper Township Republicans. Our win on June 3 indicated solid support.

I walked door-to-door in several Upper Township voting districts but unfortunately I was not able to walk in all of them. Also, I was able to attend several events to meet and greet the people of Upper Township. During all of these walks and events many people voiced their questions and concerns, some based on misunderstanding and some real concerns based on personal experience. I learned something from each and every person I talked with, and I greatly appreciate your discussions.

Upper Township went out to bid earlier this year for closed circuit security cameras, intrusion alarms and fire alarms at the buildings. Engineer Paul Dietrich said a number of companies took out bid specifications, and a pre-bid meeting was well attended, but the township only received two formal bids by the deadline.
