Ashenfelter 8K Classic

In Glen Ridge, for the past 16 years, Thanksgiving starts with a race — The Ashenfelter 8K Classic. (It makes stuffing yourself with stuffing (and pie) later a bit more guilt-free) It’s not too late to register and join!

The Ashenfelter 8K honors Olympian and Glen Ridge resident Horace Ashenfelter who won the steeple chase event at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. The Ashenfelter begins at 9 am and is open to everyone… walkers, joggers, runners and racers. To date, the Ashenfelter 8K Classic has raised over $100K for the Glen Ridge Educational Foundation.

Christina Baker Kline of Montclair (center) was honored.

A ruby red shoe was the only fashion statement guests were asked to make on Friday, November 13 at CASA for Children of Essex County’s Ruby Red Shoe Ball.

The annual event filled the room with 308 guests in ruby red shoes to raise awareness and funds for its local program. Men and women came in all types of red shoes from tennis to stilettos. The evening’s theme “there’s no place like home” speaks to CASA’s  mission of seeing the children they serve placed in safe, permanent homes through the work of its volunteer-advocates for the family courts.

The sold out event honored Montclair’s Christina Baker-Kline and Cathy G. Pinto, Anthony “Chef Tony” Villanueva for their support of CASA and their personal contributions to child advocacy.

This year’s event broke fundraising records for the organization, making it the highest amount of funds raised for a single fundraiser in one night. The organization brought in revenue of nearly $111,000 from tickets, sponsorships, and donations. After final accounting, the organization stands to profit close to $90,000 for the organization’s general fund.

Third Ward Councilor Sean Spiller with constituents at his November 23 community meeting

Third Ward Councilor Sean Spiller held a community meeting on November 23 at the Montclair Library, where he briefed constituents on the latest developments in parking, street improvements, and redevelopment, and their issues.  As always, constituents had their own concerns and their own takes on the issues Councilor Spiller addressed.

The councilor began with a rundown of various ongoing topics, parking being the most pressing of them.  He explained that the Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates was looking at how Montclair’s public parking could be best utilized, saying that the consultants were determining what rates to charge where, how to get more cars off the street through the effort to incentivize parking on the decks (especially the Fullerton deck, which is not widely used) and what rates to charge where and when, depending on how often spaces are used and peak times of use.  Councilor Spiller explained that the findings, due out in early 2016, should enable the township to make the most out of the parking available and possibly create more parking, such as building more decks.  He also informed the constituents in attendance that Montclair was moving aggressively to replace the meters with new, advanced meters that will allow people to pay by means other than coins and will be easy to repair or replace when defective.

We told you about how the Glen Ridge Police Department is participating in No Shave November.

With the month soon coming to a chose, here’s a look at Glen Ridge Police sporting facial hair to raise both funds and awareness of the “Zeuner Foundation,” which supports terminally diagnosed cancer patients, their caretakers and families.


The inspiration for The Zeuner Foundation is its founder Officer Robert Zeuner, who served 23 years in the Glen Ridge Police Department. Zeuner was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic colorectal cancer in 2004. He was 39 years old. Medical experts gave him 2 years, but he lived for 9.

The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is November 28.
