Each ring lingered over the air as dozens of people stood in silence Friday morning at
the World Trade Center Memorial Gardens in Middletown, honoring the 37 township residents killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 World Trade Center terrorist attacks. Tiny American
flags fluttered in the wind, beneath a series of wreaths town officials and veterans put up
minutes earlier. One was adorned with a ribbon, which read Middletown remembers.
The words stared back at the crowd at 8:46 a.m., when American Airlines Flight 11
slammed into the North Tower. Its our job to make sure they are remembered, said
Cindy Metz, one of Tietjens younger sisters, who attended the ceremony.

TOMS RIVER William Gaughan was a simple man


who worked hard, raised a family and tried to steer kids
toward athletics and away from trouble, his daughter
said Friday.
Lucy Barone of Beachwood said her father would
have wanted forgiveness for Joseph Marsh the man
who was high on heroin when he ended the octogenarians life in a hit-and-run accident. And so, Barone made
good on her fathers wishes and forgave Marsh before a
judge sentenced the 28-year-old Toms River man to
nine years in prison.
Gaughan in the 1960s helped to start the South Toms
River Youth Athletic League to instill his love of sports
in young people and give them an alternative to getting
in trouble, Barone said. The Ciba-Geigy retiree raised
three children, helped to raise six grandchildren and, at
the time of his death, was enjoying his eight greatgrandchildren, Barone said.
He would have wanted Marsh to turn his life around
and become a productive member of society, she
said.
He would want us to forgive you and for us to move
