Zombies, ghouls, witches and the ghost of Elizabeth Haddon haunted the Haddons Saturday night. But it was all for a good cause.
Haddon Township student council officers decided to bring back the the annual haunted school house for the 2012 Halloween season to entertain the local community. Logan Peterson, a junior at Haddon Township High School and a student council officer, said "the school took a three-year break from the annual event and the officers decided it was time to bring back one of the favorite traditions for the town." This year, students from freshmen to seniors created a haunted hospital with a chemistry lab gone haywire, an blood stained operating room, a zombie filled psychiatric unit, a disturbing and demented daycare and of course, no hospital is complete without a morgue. Guests who made it the entire way through the haunted hospital were …

Haddonfield girls' soccer falls 1-0 to Cherry Hill East in the Coaches Cup tournament.
A corner kick that looked to be going harmlessly out-of-bounds took an unlucky bounce, and just like that, Haddonfield's 87-game unbeated streak at Scout Field came to an end Friday at the hands of Cherry Hill East in the Coaches Cup tournament. The Cougars' Alex Manofu fired what would be the decisive shot with just over three minutes left in the game, giving her team the upset victory over the No. 4-seeded Bulldawgs. For Haddonfield, it ended a streak that dated back to 2004 on their home field.

Kim Flacco scored her 78th and 79th goal of her career Tuesday in Haddon Township's 4-0 win over Haddonfield.
Coaches around the Colonial Conference all have the same question for Haddon Township High School field hockey coach Genevieve Hunter these days. “They keep asking me is (Kim Flacco) a senior yet?” Hunter said with a laugh. “I tell them, unfortunately she is.” Flacco has made a career out of tormenting opposing coaches, defenses and goalies with her relentless work ethic and goal scoring skills. And if it seems like she has been scoring on the competition for years, it’s because she has. A four-year starter, Flacco reached a personal milestone this week, scoring her school-record 78th and 79th goals. Making the moment extra sweet for Flacco was that her two goals helped the Hawks record a 4-0 win over local rival Haddonfield. “It feels …

Being the best player on the best tennis team in the state only fuels Haddonfield senior Taylor Ng to work even harder.
Taylor Ng doesn’t have a whole lot of competition across the South Jersey tennis landscape. Widely regarded as the top player not only in South Jersey, but also the state, Ng has cruised to a 13-0 record, winning the majority of her matches by 6-0, 6-0 scores. Or in tennis parlance, a score of 13- love, 6-love. Constantly facing opponents with a lesser game than her could lead to Ng - a senior at Haddonfield Memorial High School—becoming complacent, laid back and frankly, bored. However, Ng knows you don’t become the best at anything by having that type of attitude. She pushes herself match after to improve on parts of her game that others could only dream of possessing. She is able to hit her serve, forehand and backhand, not only with…

"If this is our country's future from Haddonfield, we're in really good shape."
Gov. Chris Christie came to Haddonfield on Monday for a "conversation with students," and to tout his education reform agenda. Haddonfield is one of 10 towns in the state participating in a pilot program to evaluate teacher effectiveness. The evaluations will help determine if teachers get tenure or not. Christie signed a bill into law last month to overhaul a century-old standard for teacher tenure in the state. The governor fielded questions from an advanced placement history class before answering questions from the media. Students here said they were excited about the governor's visit.

Haddonfield Commissioners agreed to release 2005 Bancroft appraisal on the eve of Labor Day weekend.
The release of a 2005 appraisal of the Bancroft property on Kings Highway East has stirred concern among some residents about the public purchase of the nearly 19-acre property. The borough Board of Education and commissioners approved a letter of agreement in July to buy the property for $12.2 million. The 2005 appraisal valued the property at $8 million. Public reaction to the gap in the purchase price and the seven-year-old appraisal may have been muted by the timing of the release of the document at 3 p.m. on Friday, on the eve of the Labor Day weekend. The issue of the appraisal and value of the property had been raised in several public meetings in July. Borough officials agreed to release the appraisal in a work session meeting on …
