Spencer Goldstein, Sports Editor
October 19, 2019

Zero percent. No chance. Nada. According to northjersey.com, the Pascack Valley Indians didn’t have a shot at winning the New Jersey Super Football Conference Patriot Gold division. Until they did. The Indians clinched the Patriot Gold league championship at home on Friday night with a nail-biting 20-19 win over River Dell.

‘Beetlejuice: The Musical’ is filled with twists and surprises

Jason Leibfried, Staff Writer

A giant neon sign reading “Betelgeuse Betelgeuse” and a Tim Burton-esque proscenium capped off with purple and pink lights swirling around the theatre? Add a little “Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!” and you are in for the fright of your life. Recently, I saw the Broadway Musical “Beetlejuice: The Musical, The Musical, The Musical (which for the sake of the article, will just be...
