Motto engraved on library gets lost in translation

October 26, 2014

MOORESTOWN, N.J. (AP) — The Latin motto engraved on the wall of a new library in southern New Jersey got lost in translation.
Officials had thought the phrase "Nos Secundus Coniecto Omnia" meant "we confirm all things twice." But it actually means "we second-guess all."
Moorestown architect Rick Ragan tells the Burlington County Times he learned of the problem from residents who translated it online.
Ragan says he'll pay a stone cutter to change the phrase to "We encourage all." He'll also have the Roman numerals fixed to reflect the proper year.

Panthers run past Eagles 49-0 to win district championship

October 25, 2014

THOMAS — With 13.7 seconds left in the first half Friday night the Marsh Valley Eagles lined to up to punt to Snake River for what seemed like the 100th time in the opening half.
But what the Panther faithful did not know was that the fail 13.7 seconds would feature a games worth of craziness.
On the punt return the Panthers Wyatt Vogler was picked up and body slammed to the ground by the Eagles Seth Hansen.
As Vogler hit the turf, the benches emptied on both sides of the field as a half worth of frustration had come to a head.
