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. A woman who trains dogs to assist handicapped people complained to the Police Department that the K-9 dog had pinned her against a wall in her Sicklerville apartment complex. She said the dog, which was searching for a man wanted on a warrant, had not been properly trained or handled. 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.

Winslow's drive to withdraw from the Lower Camden County Regional High School District continues to move forward. Regional school district officials announced last night that state Department of Education officials will oversee a hearing on Winslow's secession petition on Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Edgewood Senior High School in the Tansboro section of Winslow. Regional district secretary June Dzierzynski said a three-member board of review from the Education Department has until Nov. 17 to decide whether the matter of the proposed withdrawal should be posed before the voters of the seven towns that make up the district.
