PHS winter track Coach Clinton Tabb’s heart was a flutter as junior ace Marquan Jones lined up for the starters pistol in the 4×200 meter relay at the NJSIAA Group III State Relay Championships. The quartet of Jones, Brandon Harley, Ryan Wemegah, and Martin Booker Jr. were well aware that both speed and precision passing of the baton were required if a gold medal was to be earned. Marquan exploded off of the starting line to put the Indians in front. A smooth excellent baton pass to Brandon put PHS ahead to stay and provided the quartet with a well deserved championship jacket.

The Pennsauken Shade Tree Commission is currently seeking a new member to fill an open volunteer position. The Commission is the public entity responsible for both developing and maintaining a program of tree planting and overall beautification for Pennsauken and the regulation, planning, care and control of the shade and ornamental trees and shrubberies on Township streets, highways, public places, parks and parkways. Commission members are appointed for one-year, two-year, three-year, four-year and five-year appointments; they must be residents of Pennsauken and are asked to attend meetings held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Pennsauken Township Municipal Building. For more information on the Commission, visit http://www.twp.pennsauken.nj.us/content/shade-tree-commission.

Hello fellow seniors.
The Pennsauken Free Public Library will once again be hosting AARP Tax Help sessions. This free service will be available in the Library’s Community Room, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. Tax help begins on Feb. 4 and ends April 15. This is first come, first served and priority is given to seniors.
When it comes to this time of year, you don’t necessarily associate love with the Department of Public Works. And by working together, the residents of our great town and our staff here can develop and maintain a great relationship for many years to come.
Here are some helpful ways that we can foster that loving relationship.
