A look back at the first half of the year that was in local news: New Milford 2012.
The year began with New Milford's Planning Board formally denying an application filed by Paramus-based developer S. Hekemian Group asking for preliminary and final site plan approval for the 13-acre United Water property. The application was denied citing violations to New Milford's zoning codes, moving the application over to the Zoning Board. The application was denied on the grounds that Hekemian needed a "D" variance, which is required when an applicant seeks a change in land use and if the proposed height of the buildings exceed the town's requirements. In the case of the United Water property, Hekemian is seeking to have the use changed from residential to mixed-use. New Milford Police reported that three smash and grab burglaries …

The mark of the one year anniversary as editor of New Milford Patch.
Let the river rock you like a cradle Climb to the treetops, child, if you’re able Let your hands tie a knot across the table. Come and touch the things you cannot feel. And close your fingertips and fly where I can’t hold you Let the sun-rain fall and let the dewy clouds enfold you And maybe you can sing to me the words I just told you, If all the things you feel ain’t what they seem. Then don’t mind me 'cos I ain't nothin' but a dream. --Richie Havens, Follow Remarkably, it was one year ago today that I took the reins of New Milford Patch from Tracy Montgomery and began the journey of a lifetime--a journey that would take me, well...I had no idea where it would lead me, which for an eternal restless soul such as I, seemed quite …

An NJ Spotlight geo-coded map of cell phone-related accidents broken down by county in New Jersey from 2006 to 2010.
Click here to see an interactive map of cell-phone related car accidents broken down by New Jersey county from 2006 to 2010 By Colleen O'Dea, NJ Spotlight If accident data is any indication, New Jersey’s tougher cellphone law does not appear to be having much effect. The state passed its first ban on using a handheld cell phone while driving in 2004, but at the time it was a secondary violation, meaning drivers could only be ticketed if they were pulled over for another motor vehicle violation. With nearly 3,600 crashes linked to cellphones in 2006, lawmakers made New Jersey the fourth state in the nation in which the use of a handheld cell phone is a primary violation. That law took effect March 1, 2008. But it has not resulted in much …
