When the dust cleared on election night nearly two weeks ago, Mike Krusen and Police Chief Christopher Ferrari emerged as clear victors in the race for school board. During the campaign, both men pledged to reevaluate Oaklyn's sending-district relationship with Collingswood and started a sometimes acrimonious debate between the districts about comparative SAT scores, sending-district tuition rates, and the percentage of Collingswood High School students attending four-year colleges.

HI-NELLA - Hi-Nella was at the ball, and it was nearing midnight. With the sudden poof of a last-minute legal interpretation, the magic of a glass-slipper law the little town was counting on to get its children out of Collingswood and Oaklyn schools and into a much closer high school vanished. On Dec. 30 - one day before the deadline to file notice of the town's intent to send its students to another school - the Camden County Superintendent's Office issued a decision stating Hi-Nella could not legally sever its sending relationship with Collingswood and Oaklyn.

After a typical Collingswood High School boys' basketball game, coach Joe McLoughlin would stand on the court and exchange handshakes and hugs with former players, parents, and longtime fans of the Panthers' powerful program. Those relationships were built over McLoughlin's highly successful 14-year career as a coach at the Colonial Conference school. But about three weeks ago, McLoughlin lost the job he loved, and many in the Camden County borough aren't clear why. At the June 25 school board meeting, Collingswood Superintendent Scott Oswald recommended against retaining McLoughlin as basketball coach.

They were sore and swollen. Their eyes were still tired, and their muscles were still tight.
