    MIKE MONOSTRA/The SunEven though much less snow fell than forecasted, residents took advantage of the winter weatheraround the township on Tuesday, Jan. 27. Anderson Cerra wears a serious expression as he concen-trates on sliding down the hill at Tomlinson Park in his snow saucer. For more photos, please seepage 12. See a story about the safety of sledding at Tomlinson Park to the left.

    Ready, set, sled!


    Its a common sight to see whensnow falls in Medford.

    Kids of all ages carry theirsleds to Tomlinson Park acrossfrom the Pinelands Branch Li-brary, where a small hill swoopsdownward toward RancocasCreek. The hill is one of the mostpopular sledding spots in Med-ford.

    Some residents also consider itone of the most dangerous sled-

    ding spots in Medford.Resident Mike Panarella spokeat the Medford Township councilmeeting on Jan. 20 expressingconcern about the safety of kidswho sled at Tomlinson Park. Hewanted to make council aware of how many kids are putting them-selves in harms way at the site.

    Councilman Brad Denn agrees


    Last weeks snowfall in Med-ford was likely the final storm of the pre-brine era in the township.

    The townships neighborhoodservices department is just a cou-ple steps away from having theability to treat Medfords roadswith brine, a water and salt mix-ture designed to keep snow fromfreezing to the roadways.

    Brine is placed on the road upto 72 hours prior to a storm andacts as a layer between snow andthe pavement. Brine keeps thesnow from sticking to the pave-ment and allows plows to push

    the snow off the road more easily.The brine system was pur-chased last winter to improvesnow removal efforts on townshiproads.

    We want the community toknow were not content with theservice were providing, formertownship manager Chris Schultzsaid during a meeting last Janu-
