The "King of the Couch" video game tournament was held on July 23 at Hyatt Morristown.
On July 23, a few hundred dedicated video gamers descended upon Morristown in what is called King of the Couch. Some traveled from Boston, south Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. The fee they pay at the door dictates the games they compete in. The high rollers and the biggest crowds could be found around the Mortal Kombat tables, but there were plenty of other games for people to participate in, including Halo, Street Fighter IV, Naruto and more.

The fanfare opening is set for Friday, July 22.
Without any fanfare, Starbucks opened its doors in its new corner location at 40 Park after a long sabbatical. Traffic was brisk, and loyal patrons said they were thrilled to have the java giant back in town. Starbucks returns to a very different coffee climate in Morristown, however. When they left the old Epstein's building several years ago, they were the only game in town. Today, Greenberry's, SmartWorld and, to a lesser coffee-centric extent, Zebu Forno provide additional caffeine competition. A grand opening event at Starbucks is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 22.

A party was held at the "Morristown Campground" on June 3.
In late April the town of Tuscaloosa, Ala., was devestated by a tornado and it didn't take too long for Morristown resident Berit Ollestad, a avid volunteer, to start her own campaign to collect disaster relief supplies such as water, diapers and cleaning supplies for the cause. Earlier this week, she set up a tent across from her Hamilton Road home to bring further awareness to the Morristown Relief Effort, which will culminate Saturday, June 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a UPS delivery truck stationed in the Town Hall parking lot, to be filled with donations bound for Alabama.

The Colonials will face off against Mendham High School in their first game of the season.
Entering the second half of her final season, Coach Pat Mattos said she is very excited about her boys tennis team, which opens its season against Mendham High School on April 1. Finishing last year with a 7-11 record, Mattos said she knew it was a rebuilding period for the Morristown High School boys tennis team because of the loss of so many seniors from the previous season. This year, formerly green players have become seasoned veterans, and Mattos said she is especially happy about a new member, sophomore C.J. Katz, who has played tennis since he was five-years-old. A light-hearted but focused player, the coach said she feels his presence and talents will have a ripple effect on the entire team.
