The Parsippany Police Department says it is on the lookout for a man in connection with a reported robbery and assault that took place Wednesday night in Lake Hiawatha.

Lake Hiawatha's The CakeOver Bakery, six months after its opening, is thriving.
We've been wanting to check back with Lake Hiawatha's The CakeOver Bakery, which specializes in gluten-free treats. Our first contact with the enterprise and its enterprising owner Alison Teperman came just as she was preparing to open its doors last October—mere days before Superstorm Sandy hit. At the time, Teperman was faced with serious challenges—dealing with her own power outage, getting the store open and finding new customers when most people were focused on life and death issues or dealing with the loss of power or fallen trees. But she met it head on with aplomb and continued her efforts to spread the word about her business. And it's paying off: The bakery, she says, is progressing positively. Already The CakeOver was voted the …

Share your thoughts with Patch.
The pictures here show a chronic situation that exists at 88 N. Beverwyck Road. On Monday, the township's sanitation department "emptied" municipal trash containers. At about 10 a.m. Tuesday, this scene appeared—and this is the norm. This site is just one of several chronic dumping spots. Many times the culprits can be identified by the trash they leave. This spot has white plastic bags filled with hair. No actual litter abatement is performed. For example, there is nothing done in terms of cleaning gutters and sewers to prevent or curtail runoff pollution from entering our river-sensitive area. Imagine what more "uneconomic" development will bring to the area like Waterview rezoning! Of course Parsippany is not alone; our whole lack of …

Paid for via federal and county flood mitigation programs, the Lake Hiawatha home will be razed and turned into open space for perpetuity.
The first flood-damaged Parsippany home slated for acquisition is now the property of the township. Mayor James Barberio presided over the Feb. 13 closing of a River Drive home. There is more to come, he said, noting that closings for the remaining 17 severely damaged homes should take place soon. These residences, rendered uninhabitable during Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, qualified for a voluntary FEMA grant enabling the municipality to purchase their homes for future demolition and eventual reversion to open space for perpetuity. Monies came from matching grants via the FEMA Hazard Mitigation Assistance Program and the Morris County Flood Mitigation Program. Lake Hiawatha resident Rebecca Erb is the first homeowner to relinquish her …

Line snapped inside business under construction, police said.
Parsippany Police report that just before 8:30 a.m. Friday, emergency responders headed to 146 N. Beverwyck Road, where a business under construction was experiencing a gas leak.
