Without doubt, one of the biggest sports stories, and news stories, of the year was the sexual assault scandal at Penn State University, and the subsequent dismissal of head football coach Joe Paterno. While Paterno may be the one individual getting all the attention, he never was the main villain.

For the past couple of months, the weather in Chatham has been wildly unpredictable. This wild weather began in the winter with record snowfalls. As spring came around the tempertures did not increase, but stayed the same. Temperatures in Chatham would then rise and fall for many weeks. Once spring finally settled, a series of rain storms dominated the forecasts. For the past couple months the weather in Chatham has been to say the least abnormal; however wild weather has not only struck Northern New Jersey.
