Here’s a rundown of Secaucus news coverage and other items over the last few days, including questions about the middle school principal’s absence since September, bed bugs(!), athlete of the week honors for a Secaucus junior, and praise for snow removal in town…
Principal MIA? Secaucus school principal Patrick Impreveduto has been out since September on injury leave after apparently falling on school property but his attendance at Holmdel council meetings –he’s deputy mayor of the town — has been impeccable.
The Hudson Reporter suggests Impreveduto was not happy with being moved to the Middle School from the high school before the current school year. The paper quoted a Holmdel official who said the $180K-a-year principal has not been seen with a cane or walking aid.
Athletic Honors: Shannon Waters, a junior three-sport athlete at Secaucus high school, was honored as the Record’s Female Athelete of the Week this week.
Waters plays volleyball, basketball and softball for the Patriots, in addition to landing on the honor roll.
Bed Bugs!? The Straight & Narrow alcohol and drug rehabilitation center at Meadowview Campus on county Ave. apparent had an outbreak of bedbugs in one of its buildings.
The Jersey Journal said the problem was contained to Building 7 at the campus and exterminators have been called to eliminate the dreaded bugs.
A Hudson County spokesman told the paper that the program did not report the infestation as required by its lease.
Let it Snow: We received a few comments and saw some others on Twitter praising the Secaucus DPW for getting rid of the 12 inches or so of snow that fell on Saturday night.
“Secaucus roads were sooooo much better than N. Bergen and Hoboken. Those guys deserve a beer!” wrote one reader.
“TO SECAUCUS PUBLIC WORKS: Thank you. THAT’S how you plow a ******* road,” said another Twitter commenter.
