‘Night of Hope’ a Success Thanks to Community Support
I am writing to thank the Mercer County community, for supporting Hope Loves Company’s fourth Night of Hope on Saturday, March 16 at Union Fire Co. and Rescue Squad in Titusville, NJ. Hope Loves Company, Inc. (HLC) is the only nonprofit in the United States with the unique mission to provide emotional and educational support to children, teenagers, and young adults who have had or have a loved one battling ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. HLC was founded in 2012 and we are located right here in Pennington, NJ. To continue reading, please click this link.

John Hart to Kids: Walking to School Safely is ‘Ridiculous’
Part of what keeps the Hopewell Township Committee meetings interesting is that we never know what longtime committee member John Hart is going to say next.
At the March 11 budget meeting, Mr. Hart found the Safe Routes to School program worthy of his ire. Who knew making sure our community’s children get to and from school in one piece and with a little fresh air is ire-worthy? But, it was for Mr. Hart, who said the “safe walking thing is ridiculous.” To continue reading, please click this link.
Hopewell Township Needs Green Energy
Hopewell Township has the opportunity to join an energy collaboration with other towns in Mercer and Hunterdon counties that would increase the amount of renewable energy supplied to Township residents, lower energy costs for electric customers, and fight the PennEast pipeline that is threatening to tear its way through Hopewell Township.
