Longtime Winslow Township Committeeman Ceasare Napoliello, who lost his bid for the mayor's seat on Tuesday, said yesterday that he would resign his committee seat by the end of January. Napoliello, a Democratic committeeman since 1967, said he had promised party leaders last year that he would resign if he lost the mayor's race to Republican Norman Tomasello. "The decision was made a long time ago by the party that if I lost, I'd step down," Napoliello said. He said that his resignation would be effective either Dec. 31 or Jan. 31 and that a final date would be chosen later this month.

Winslow has ordered former Township Engineer Alexander Churchill to resume work on the municipality's $9 million Route 73 sewer project. On Feb. 11, the township committee told Churchill to stop work on the project, citing a "serious misunderstanding" with him, according to Mayor Albert K. Brown. A week later, the committee refused to pay Churchill $389,000, representing 90 percent of the planning for the engineering work. The actions spurred talk that the committee would fire Churchill, who is under contract to engineer the entire project.

Technically, there is a fire district in Winslow. In reality, however, none exists. The Township Committee will attempt to clear up the situation tonight at its meeting, scheduled for 7:30. In 1983, a group of fire officials and residents collected enough signatures on a petition, thereby forcing the township to form a fire district, which by state statute would elect officers and draw up a budget. A counterpetition was circulated, and a legal battle followed. The litigation ended when the Township Committee set up a Board of Fire Overseers as a compromise.

Officials here have received word that the Camden County Prosecutor's Office exonerated a township police officer in an incident involving his K-9 dog this year.

But after reviewing the case, Prosecutor Edward Borden said April 7 that "there is no basis for any charges" against Officer David Deaner.

Most youngsters in this district's six public elementary schools will notice something different in their classrooms when school begins Sept. 7. During the summer, an estimated 120 Winslow teachers took two six-hour computer classes in which they made a lesson plan incorporating the Internet. As a reward, each of their classrooms will receive a new computer with Internet capabilities and a printer, thanks to the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders' Tech 2000 initiative. Last year, 120 other Winslow teachers participated in the program.

Winslow residents, already accustomed to setting their newspapers, glass and cans out for recycling, may soon be able to add an unlikely item to that list - motor oil. Under the auspices of the Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection, Winslow was recently chosen, along with East Orange, Essex County, to serve as a pilot program for oil recycling. Pending township and Pinelands approvals, the EPA will furnish and set up two or three storage tanks.

It is no secret that substitute teachers are hard to come by. Just ask any member of the Board of Education here. That is why when it came time for the board to vote Monday night to raise the salaries of substitute teachers with certification from $60 a day to $80 a day, it did not hesitate. Salaries for substitutes without certification will be raised from $50 to $75. "Quality substitutes are in high demand, and they are very difficult to come by," said board President Michael Bibb.

The Winslow Township Committee reached a tentative settlement late last night in its three-year legal battle with Police Chief Gary F. Stowell Sr., agreeing to pay the once-ousted chief $500,000 to drop his federal lawsuit against the township and four officials. The settlement, approved by unanimous vote, will not be final until a written agreement is approved by both sides, Township Solicitor Benjamin Goldstein said early this morning. To pay Stowell, the township will have to appropriate funds for its 1990 budget in excess of its state-mandated "cap" on municipal budget increases, said Goldstein.

Jonathan Schoonover slipped a coarse green shepherd's costume over his head and prepared to go coatless into the frigid, starry night. The 12-year-old was thrilled at the prospect of standing stock-still for hours while cars crept past. "I like being in something that makes people come to the Lord," Jonathan said, fastening his headdress. Clear the windshield and pull in for the Christmas Drive-Thru, Cedar Brook Bible Church's uncommon, beloved tradition. Every year, about 1,000 vehicles - including a few busloads of people - from Pennsylvania and New Jersey enter the small Winslow church's narrow parking lot, are handed a CD or a circa-1980 cassette player, and drive through eight scenes depicting the birth and death of Jesus.

She already had won three individual state titles, scored 38 of her team's 97 points as it won its third straight title and finished the season with the state's best mark in three separate events.

The long-awaited Winslow Township High School's junior/senior prom was supposed to be a night dreams are made of. For months, a committee of juniors worked long hours to craft a fitting send-off for the seniors, who had looked forward to the gala for four years. The theme was Old Hollywood "Glitz & Glam," and for the close to 400 students who turned out at the Mansion on Main Street in Voorhees, it was an absolute star turn. But just about two hours into the May 15 prom, as the DJ was playing Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen," the power went out. Some thought it was a senior prank.

CHICAGO - Seven games into his Duke career, Justise Winslow was dubbed a "well-rounded James Harden" by USA Today. Five months later, the small forward still isn't sure why he is compared to the Houston Rockets shooting guard. "Maybe being lefthanded, living in Houston, being surrounded by the Rockets, maybe that," Winslow said Friday at the NBA draft combine. "But I try to pick up different things. I like James Harden, his game. But I'm just trying to be the best that I can be. "Whether it's grabbing something from [Los Angeles Clippers point guard]

It's easy to see that Darnell Maisonet is a terrific baseball player. It's easy to hear that, too. "He never shuts up," Winslow Township coach Keith Regn said of his senior centerfielder and leadoff hitter. Regn was offering a compliment, because Maisonet is loud in the best kind of baseball way - issuing a steady stream of near-nonsensical but relentlessly positive chatter and unwavering support for his teammates. "I just love the game," Maisonet said. "I love to play and I love to win and I love to see my teammates do well.

Kemp Carr believes Winslow Township can be one of the best football programs in South Jersey. "It's time to wake the sleeping giant," said Carr, who has been hired as Winslow Township's new coach. Carr turned Penns Grove into a South Jersey small-school power during 10 seasons as the Red Devils' head coach. His 2012 team went 12-0, won the South Jersey Group 1 title and set a state record for points with 621 (a per-game average of 51.7). Carr hopes to create the same kind of success at Winslow Township, which is a Group 3 program in football.
