Did APP stop reporting about Lakewood Govt

The APP has stopped reporting anything about the Lakewood government or township committee for the last few  months. Major recent news stories got zero coverage in the Asbury Park Press, nothing about the 2017 mayoral appointment, Vaad, nothing about the Take back Lakewood movement, or the planning or zoning boards, nothing about first amendment activist. Until now that paper did not miss an opportunity to report about the goings on in Lakewood. It actually may not be a bad thing it was last year that the paper wrote a hateful and shameful editorial about the Lakewood community "A.G. must take close look at Lakewood". The paper did not apologize for it. 
The reporter who covers Lakewood actually did a fair and balanced job in the articles.
The paper is still the official newspaper of the township to post public notices, but recently township notices were posted on another local media website. Perhaps a deal was struck, or when you hit them in the pocket suddenly journalistic integrity and the public's right to know does not matter.

Near record warm temperatures

Unusual near record warmth today for the next few days, high today of 61 degrees in Lakewood. Tomorrow in the 50's. Its will get cold again on Shabbos with a chance of snow. warm weather to resume next week.

Members of Pine River Village senior community in Lakewood came to the Planning board to discuss a application which will create major traffic on Pine street and disrupt the quality of life to their immediate and surrounding area.

The application will be heard on February 21st, 2017. After 3 hours the public was allowed to talk in general. Throughout the meeting officials were tough on the public for keeping to the proper decorum and respect newly appointed Chairman Mr. Herzl did a good job balancing and letting the public speak.
