Covered a press conference on the SAFE PLAY act, which stands for a lot of words. It tackles concussions, cardiac arrest, heat-related illness and energy drinks. That’s a lot. There were some former NFL players there and current Eagles DB Malcolm Jenkins, whom I did not boo. Here’s the story: http://nj-ne.ws/BhcoY

A random call becomes a story.
I covered the funeral procession of Wallington Fire Capt. Gregory Barnas last week. I’ve never seen so many firefighters in one place.

I’ve had a crazy busy morning. But I wrote an update to the status of a bridge (just down the street from me) that has needed repairs for 18 months and is maybe getting them… maybe.
I wrote about some new restaurants coming to the area. Everybody loves food.
