As for this past week in High School Sports, R-S Central baseball won three games out of four and East Rutherford won all four games it played in Spring Break Tournaments each entered.
The Rutherford Weekly recently approached Smith's Drug Store with the intention of producing an article about the long life of The Fountain and it's 'secret for success' all these years. Mr. John Higgins, owner and pharmacist, referred us to Mrs. Susan Stewart who is the current manager of The Fountain.
