Key Club to Oversee 2005 Oscar Awards

Last thing we’d heard from Trevor Weigle, Bloomfield’s director of health and human services, was that the township of Bloomfield was planning to have an independent outside auditor oversee the drawing in its flu shot lottery.
Imagine our surprise when we learned in an AP story today that the independent auditor turned out to be the Bloomfield High School Key Club.
Apparently Price Waterhouse wanted $45,000 to oversee the lottery and the Key Club was willing to work for three Vinnies pizzas and a couple liters of Diet Coke. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, impressed with the Key Club’s cheap fair and impartial work, is now considering the teenagers for their springtime gig, and the equally-smitten College Board is putting them in charge of grading the SAT’s.
