The Haddonfield BOE approved a budget that will raise school taxes nearly $200 on average.
The Haddonfield Board of Education unanimously approved a 2 percent budget increase for the 2013-14 school year Thursday during a regular meeting. The increase means a typical homeowner with a property valued at $491,359 will pay $7,308 in school taxes, $194.40 more than last year. School officials said they want to keep programs and staffing at current levels and not reduce them to balance the budget.

But do you really need clues? The budding artist did all of his or her work in the early morning hours of Saturday, March 9. No arrests have been reported.
