Heroism comes in many forms. Two different varieties were recognized this week by the Cranford Police Department. One involved risking lives to save someone in peril and the other is fighting a life-changing disease. Those are the top Cranford stories of the past week.

Ricot and Helena Jean Baptiste have only owned Urban Burger since last September but already they made Travel Pulse’s list for the best burger in every state. A new menu, music lists put together by Ricot and events such as beer nights are some of the ways the restaurant is changing.

Heads up. There are new recycling rules that will be in effect for the next town-wide recycling on Tuesday. You can get the details in this week’s Cranford Radio headlines. You’ll also hear about CHS sports and the weekend weather and events.
Hundreds of people use the Cranford Community Center weekly. As they move through the atrium they may see what appears to be a pile of rocks beneath the stairs to the second level. On closer examination, you’ll find some piping and smooth stones that once were part of a water garden. Cranford’s three garden clubs recently received a grant from the National Garden Clubs to restore the water garden. The grant, however, falls short of what’s needed to bring back the soothing sounds of flowing water. On Sunday, June 10, the Floraphile Garden Club, the Garden Club of Cranford and the Green Thumb Garden Club of Cranford will hold a brunch at Pairings to raise money for the project. Cranford Radio spoke with Deb Murphy, Carol English and Brenda Flahault to learn more about the project and the brunch.
Additional support comes from the Cranford Recreation & Parks Department. For tickets or further information please email Sue Matlosz at email@example.com. Tickets may also be purchased at the front desk of the Cranford Library.
Downtown streets were filled with thousands Sunday afternoon for the spring street fair. Later in the week CHS students participated in the National Day of Silence. The track, lacrosse and baseball teams all have weekend action and cooler temps return Saturday.
