    By SEAN LAJOIE The Sun

    Toward the end of 2015, the Medford Town Council was ap- proached by the Still family and members of the Medford Histori- cal Society with a request that it consider naming something in town after Dr. James Still to demonstrate the significance of  his contributions to Medford.

    It was brought up at several council meetings as a discussion item and was agreed on that they would rename Cranberry Hall after it was suggested by Mayor

    Jeffrey Beenstock. However, weeks later, Been-

    stock and Deputy Mayor Charles Watson were approached by the leadership of the senior center which raised concerns on behalf  of seniors.

    Watson met with the Still fami- ly to voice those concerns and dis- cuss alternatives for the renam- ing. According to Beenstock, the family was supportive of renam-

    ing Cranberry Park instead of  Cranberry Hall. In fact, the fami- ly preferred the township rename the park that is located right next to the hall.

    Councilman Christopher Buoni agreed to go with their preferences after he deemed the goal of this project to acknowl- edge and recognize one of the unique and great Medford resi- dents any way they could.

    “Dr. Still is obviously someone who stands tall in history. It’s my pleasure to honor his family and also the family today as they con- tinue to carry on that legacy from

    generation to generation,” he said.

    Janet Jackson Gould, the coor- dinator of the Dr. Still Oversight Committee and the vice president of programs for the historical so- ciety, confirmed her group was delighted to hear council was looking at renaming Cranberry Park in honor of Still. Gould also

    The following were taken from reports on file with the Medford Township Police Department:

    On Jan. 12, at 4:29 p.m., Med- ford Township Police were dispatched to a home on Huntington Circle Drive for a fire in the backyard.

    Police found a large fire contained to the backyard and deck area. Local fire depart- ments quickly extinguished the

    blaze and no injuries were report- ed.

    The incident is under investi- gation by the Medford Township Criminal Investigative Bureau and the Medford Township Fire Marshal's Office.

    On Jan. 12 at 11:15 p.m., patrols conducted a motor vehicle stop on a silver Toyota Corola for failing to stop at a stop sign on Tallowood

    Drive at Knotty Oak Drive. Upon their approach of the vehicle, pa- trols could detect an odor of  burnt marijuana coming from in- side the vehicle where two occu-

    pants were seated, which included the passenger, a 17-year- old female.

    After a search of the vehicle was conducted,

    patrols uncovered a plastic candy wrapper containing marijuana.

    The juvenile was subsequently

    taken into custody and transport- ed to Medford Township Police Headquarters. The juvenile was charged with possession of mari-

     juana under 50 grams, processed and released to a parent.

    On Jan. 7 at 3:52 p.m., patrols conducted a motor vehicle stop on a green Dodge Neon for a cracked
