7th Most Read Article...How the George Family has impacted decades of Shore Conference Athletics. (25,015 page views), Story Date: September 23, 2020.
Do you remember that project you did in school growing up where you had to put together a family tree?
It was a poster board filled with the names of each of your family members and what they did as well as listing what you wanted to do with your life.
The tree was made using markers, crayons, stickers and so forth to make it shine that much more and get some extra credit.
Well the George family tree didn't need that extra sparkle to be colored in, it was there naturally as a family of athletes who played and starred at Long Branch High School for decades and have since played at other schools across Monmouth County.
Some went onto to other coach football or wrestling which a couple of them also played and even became educators and there's a beach manager in the family as well.
Billy, Danny and Alex George took a trip with me down memory lane late this summer and discussed how their family has impacted Shore Conference athletics dating back to the 1930's at Long Branch High School.
7th Most Watched Video...Ask The Chief with Stafford Police Chief Tom Dellane. (3,498 Video Views), Show Date: February 27, 2020.
On the 4th episode of Townsquare Media Jersey Shore's 'Ask The Chief' Stafford Township Police Chief Tom Dellane discussed a number of topics including the 'On Point' mental health program that has brought in social workers to the department twice a week since 2016 to help police deescalate situations and the program was on the cusp of becoming a National program under former 3rd District Congressman Tom MacArthur prior to losing to Andy Kim in the 2018 election. The program has not been picked back up in Congress by Andy Kim.
