Week in Review: Colls Coach Canned, Bistro Backlash

The Collingswood school board lets the basketball coach go amid a community uproar and racism allegations, plus we give you the rundown on all of the nearby fireworks.

The Collingswood board of ed sacked boys’ basketball coach Joe McLoughlin—but the matter isn’t over as an investigation launches over claims of racial motivations and threats.

That investigation doesn’t have a deadline attached. “I can assure the folks in Collingswood that I will be diligent and persistent in seeking information…,” the attorney hired for the job says.

Borough resident Jamarvis Green admits his “management” role in a Camden drug ring tied to the Bloods street gang.

Our food columnist looks at the backlash against Collingswood’s newest eatery and asks why.

For the second year in a row, you won’t be able to rock out to independence at Cooper River …

… But we have plenty of other nearby places (including Collingswood, of course) where you can catch a spectacular fireworks show.

Every time I read your articles on Collingswood's restraunts, you skip over the best one in town, JOE PESCE. We have eaten at all of them, do enjoy some, but this is the one we go to at least once a week. Food is great, Chef Pete does wonders with fresh fish, service is always friendly and servers very attentive and host Chris is the best at making you feel welcome and like your an old friend. Do hope to see " Joe Pesce " in your atrticles of good restraunts in town.
