1. Patel v. New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission(A-86-08) 11-10-09

The unsafe driving ticket is no points for offense one and two. The 3rd gives the driver 4 points, unless there is more than 5 years between the 2nd and 3rd offense. The Supreme Court held Under N.J.S.A. 39:4-97.2(e), the exemption provision for assessing motor vehicle penalty points for an unsafe driving offense that occurs more than five years after "the prior offense," "the prior offense" refers only to the most recent preceding offense based on both a plain reading of the statute and a review of the legislative history. Thus, the Motor Vehicle Commission correctly imposed motor vehicle points on Patel for having a fourth unsafe driving conviction in 2007, only one year after the date of her prior, third, unsafe driving offense.


2. Congratulations to South Brunswick Varsity Soccer Team on Becoming Middlesex
County Champions!

First county championship in School history. The Vikings captured their first GMC boys soccer county tournament title with a 1-0 victory over North Brunswick. Chase Adams scored the games only goal 10 minutes into the second half off an assist from Bishoy Garis. Nick Goswami made two outstanding saves in the first half and Mike Heyer and the back line held off the Raider attack in the second half.

In the Semi-Finals, South Brunswick defeated Woodbridge. The Vikings used a big
second half to earn a trip to the GMC county finals for the third time in school history. After being down 1-0 at the half, the Vikings exploded for four goals
in the second half. Midway through the second half, Bishoy Garis headed home a Patrick Harkness corner kick. After Woodbridge scored to regain the lead 2 minutes later, the Vikings responded 1 minute later on goal by Patrick Harkness. With less than 10 minutes left, Mike Heyer scored the game winner heading in a Patrick Harkness
flick. Brendan Vercammen iced the game with a rocket that found the upper 90 with
3 minutes to play.

Boys team was also the GMC Red Division champs 2008, 07, 06
