George headed to Cornell for wrestling this fall
In the first installment of Patch's new Athlete of the Week feature, Long Branch High School's Jake George is featured. George is headed to Cornell to wrestle this fall and signed his national letter of intent earlier this month. Each week we will ask our athlete of the week three questions and print their answers verbatim. Why did you choose the college you did? I think Cornell has a great balance, both academically and athletically. Also, my brother going there also altered my decision, somewhat, but I just think it's a great place. What has been your best sports experience at Long Branch High School so far? I've had a lot of great experiences playing sports, but I think my most memorable was my freshman year when we won the group title …

The annual parade down Broadway saw wet weather.
If you missed the annual Columbus Day parade in Long Branch yesterday, you may have avoided getting your feet wet, but you missed out on smiling faces and about two pounds of candy per parade goer. Cold temps and rainy skies kept away the crowds along Broadway, but those who toughed it out were treated to bag pipers, fire engines, floats, twirlers and high school bands, all with a spirit that couldn't be dampened by the weather. Patch was there and we now have 158 Tootsie Rolls and 30 Blow Pops to prove it. Next year we'll be more like the little girl in front of Dunkin' Donuts, who brought along her fishing net to catch her loot.
