Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are, you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.

He joins Allan Kane as the two captains in the department.
The promotion of Chris Doyle from lieutenant to the rank of captain was done so to keep up with an evolving police department, Galloway Police Chief Patrick Moran said following the council meeting on Tuesday night, May 14. “We’re expecting retirements over the next several years, and we need to move people into key positions,” Moran said.

Doyle’s promotion leaves the department with a vacant lieutenant’s position that Moran said would not be filled. There are no lieutenants on the force. There are six sergeants and five corporals currently on the force. Doyle…
