    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—The city's police force had seven extra sets of eyes and ears in the crowd at this year's fireworks celebration, as auxiliary police worked for the first time in over a decade.

    Auxiliary police get free training from the Middlesex County Police Academy, do not carry guns, and are unpaid volunteers who give a minimum of 110 hours per year.

    Lt. JT Miller said, "It is our intention to use the auxiliary for events."

    NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - On January 20, many locals breathed a sigh of relief as New Jersey’s acting education commissioner Christopher Cerf announced the eight charter schools that were approved for the state.

    The omission of the controversial Tikun Olam Hebrew Language Charter School from the list was a welcome development for some, and a disappointment for the Highland Park real estate agent, Sharon Akman, who has submitted similar applications for charter schools in Middlesex County three times before.
