At its first public event in Lincroft, the founders of the all-girls school Trinity Hall announced they are engaged in discussions with Middletown officials about potentially opening their school on a site within the township in fall 2013. The founders made the announcement before 150 people at an International Day of the Girl event held Thursday night at Christian Brothers Academy.

The Holmdel boy's cross-country is aiming to keep pace with nationally-ranked CBA and be the best public school team in New Jersey.
The Holmdel boys cross-country season began last Friday at Ocean County Park, and the team is looking to be one of the top teams in New Jersey.

Pete Yurkowski, 24, of Holmdel, will be competing on the 25th season of the 'Survivor' series, which premieres Wednesday at 8 p.m. on CBS. "I never thought I'd be on a TV show," Yurkowski said.

"I love sports, love physical activity, it's dangerous, they put you in the middle of nowhere, it's a strategy game and I'm good at lying and manipulating people," Yurkowski said. "I saw no problem in trying to manipulate people to go for a million dollars." …
