Deli/caterer with long history in Morris Plains has changed its business plan and relocated.
It's a shock for long-time Morris Plains residents, but Ronnie's Deli, a local family business on Speedwell Ave. for more than 45 years, has closed.

The business has morphed into a catering outfit called Ronnie's All American Barbecue, moved to a new location in Randolph and limited its services to off-site catering.

The news of the move and the bank's expansion were confirmed by Morris Plains Mayor Frank Druetzler, but, as yet, we have been unable to reach the …

Morristown foil fencers show their skills.

Videographer Steve Moss slowed down the speed in this video so you can see three foil fencers from the Morristown High School Girls' Fencing team scoring points on their opponents from Randolph High School. The video was shot at the annual Santelli Fencing Tournament on Jan. 16 at Morris Knolls High School.
