SUPERSTORM SANDY-FISH PASSAGES
SPRING LAKE — Projects to help parts of six states recover after Superstorm Sandy have improved the ability of fish to move through formerly blocked waterways, while also helping reduce the risk of flooding in those areas. After the 2012 storm, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has spent nearly $11 million on a series of projects to remove dams and other blockages from coastal waterways in six states, partnering with local environmental groups.

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP — New Jersey model airplane groups are working to spread the passion for the hobby to the next generation. Glenn Barbi, member of the Metropolitan Sport Squadron club, says he’s worried kids today won’t have the patience to spend hours building a model airplane. Not only do model airplanes serve as a gateway into STEM fields, say aficionados, but they could also encourage kids to become pilots. By Lindsey Kelleher of The Record. SENT: 1,090 words.
AROUND THE STATE:
— CARBON MONOXIDE DEATH — Authorities are investigating the death of a man after finding elevated levels of carbon monoxide in his Roxbury home.
PHILADELPHIA — If the Philadelphia Eagles are going to make a respectable showing after their first Super Bowl title, it’s time to do so. They are heavily injured physically and, perhaps psychologically, by a 4-6 record as they host the New York Giants (3-7) on Sunday. AP photos.
EAST RUTHERFORD — Just what the spiraling New York Jets need: Tom Brady and the very annoyed New England Patriots making a visit. While the Patriots are on pace for their 10th straight AFC East title, the heat on Jets coach Todd Bowles has intensified. New York has lost four in a row and has beaten New England once in the past eight tries. AP photos.
