Four Shore Regional students have attained the rank of Eagle Scout. In order to receive this rank the scouts must complete a community service project including its inception, planning, funding and supervision.

Shore has been utilizing random drug tests since 2005.
While other school districts such as the Lacey Township School District consider its implementation, Shore Regional High School says its pre-existing random drug testing is working well. According to the Drug-Free Projects Coalition, Inc., a nonprofit that advocates for drug testing in schools, there is a correlation between drug use and poor academic achievement. A 2008 review and analysis of school report card data shows that Clearview, Nutley and Shore Regional each have higher graduation and lower drop-out rates in addition to higher average math and language arts scores on the SATs than Lacey Township High School. In 2005, Shore Regional High School implemented random drug testing. The superintendent proposed the program after the …

Both squads preparing for States
As he watched the final shot of the game roll and round and off the rim before falling to the floor for another nail biting loss, Freehold Township senior John Horrigan said it was a view that has become all to familiar for the Patriots this year. "That's been the story all year long," he said. "We get to the very end and we need to find a way to start putting them down and getting the wins." In the end it was the Shore Regional Blue Devils who picked up the 60-58 win in a game both teams said will serve as good preparation for the upcoming state tournament. The game may not have ended well for the Patriots but it started well as Horrigan used his strong presence in the middle to help push his team to an early 10-0 lead. Shore Regional …

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.
