Riverside High will have to forfeit two football victories because it used an ineligible player. The NJSIAA has penalized the Rams for using the player in a 35-0 win over Maple Shade on Sept. 25 and a 42-7 triumph over Palmyra on Oct. 2. Instead of being 3-1, the Rams are now 1-3. School officials declined to comment, saying that all questions on the matter should be directed to the NJSIAA. "The forfeits will stand," Boyd Sands, the NJSIAA executive director, said yesterday.

Bensalem school officials said last week they were surprised by the quick and large response from teachers to plans for the first graduate-level course to be offered by the school district's Bensalem Academy. Originally, there was to be room for 23 teachers, but the course drew interest from 31 teachers in the first three days it was advertised, Assistant Superintendent David Archibald told the school board Wednesday during the monthly agenda meeting. Because of the surge of interest in the course, called "Writing Across the Curriculum With Computers," the board decided to split the course into two groups to be taught by two computer teachers.

A law signed Thursday by Gov. Christie pushed New Jersey a big step forward in the race to become the first state to erect offshore wind turbines. Legislators said the action could bring hundreds of green-energy jobs to Paulsboro, which they hope will become a hub of turbine manufacturing. Christie hopes to secure the title of first in the nation to attract developers and manufacturers associated with wind power. The law applies the same tool that helped the state become second, behind California, in solar-power.

THE EAGLES haven't even held their first training-camp practice yet, but thanks to the NFL, two of their rookies, Zach Ertz and Jordan Poyer, already are behind. Ertz, a second-round tight end, and Poyer, a seventh-round defensive back, are victims of one of the league's dumber rules. While the rest of the team's rookies spent most of the spring at the NovaCare Complex participating in OTAs and minicamps and familiarizing themselves with the offense and defense, Ertz and Poyer were on the West Coast finishing school and forced to learn their positional responsibilities via once-a-week Skype sessions with an assistant coach.

The Springfield High School Class of 1990 will have to meet new graduation requirements because the school board voted 6-0, with three members absent, to adopt a new policy at last week's meeting. But the new policy is not much different from the old policy, which was far tougher than that required by the state, according to Superintendent of Schools Charles McLaughlin. "Eighty-five to ninety percent of our students were already fulfilling or exceeding the requirements set forth by the state board of education," McLaughlin said after the Thursday night meeting.

The Bensalem Township school board decided on Tuesday to establish an academy where its teachers could take graduate-level courses, but only for a probationary period of one year. Assistant Superintendent David Archibald, who serves on the staff development committee that proposed the academy in August 1988, said the probationary period would allay the board's concerns over the financial impact the Bensalem Academy for Professional Development would have. Archibald said he expected the administration to come back to the board in December with a request to run the first academy course early next year.

Jonathan Jusino spent his first year out of high school as a stock clerk and sales associate at a clothing store, and found it unfulfilling. "I noticed there was no future for me in the work I was doing," he said. So Jusino enrolled at Community College of Philadelphia last fall as a first step in pursuing a teaching career. With his financial aid, it would have taken him three years to get his associate's degree. But a program introduced by the college this semester will allow him to finish in 21/2.

New Jersey State Sen. Raymond J. Lesniak (D., Union) introduced a bill Thursday that would freeze corporate tax-break programs until the state could produce reports assessing how effective they have been at creating jobs and growing the local economy. Lesniak said the legislation would create more transparency surrounding the $5 billion in tax incentives that the state's Economic Development Authority (EDA) has given in recent years to companies, many of which have been awarded the credits in exchange for relocating to Camden and other struggling cities.
