Westfield Police Chief David Wayman, aka "fobbit," has turned in his police uniform in exchange for the "fruit salad" display on his chest and requests that all subordinates refer to him as General Wayman for the duration of the storm.

No longer will the residents of Westfield have to flee to their rooftops to escape the rising waters of Mindowaskin Pond waiting to be rescued.
What's next? Maybe a helicopter or an amphibious vehicle? Another example of wasteful spending and mismanagement?
Westfield still has roads in need of repaving for over 25 years. The reduction in public safety personnel within the police department and fire department, to all-time lows under Mayor Skibitsky's leadership, hasn't saved the taxpayer a dime as property taxes continue to rise and services are cut.
Mayor Skibitsky just finds other ways to waste the surplus of money realized from these cuts.
So, the next time Mayor Skibitsky tells residents he is operating a budget that included salaries at a level comparable to 2006, don't believe the hype. His "Doing more with less" campaign slogan is all smoke and mirrors.
Time to fire up the snowblower.
