Cumberland may pull polls from schools 'El Wingador' faces drug charge
CARLISLE -- Cumberland County elections director Penny Brown said she's recommending that the county stop using schools as polling places.
The Sentinel of Carlisle reports she said she's making the recommendation because of public perception that children may be put in danger by people coming into the schools in the wake of last month's school shootings in Newtown, Conn.
She said she doesn't think children are put in danger, but that there is public perception they are. The county currently uses six public schools as polling places.
WOODBURY, N.J. -- A five-time wing-eating champion known in the Philadelphia area as "El Wingador" has been indicted in New Jersey on cocaine distribution charges.
William Simmons is charged with four counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and one count of manufacturing or distribution of more than a half ounce of cocaine in June.
The South Jersey Times reports the 51-year-old Woodbury Heights resident is also charged with six counts of manufacturing or distribution of more than a half ounce and less than five ounces of the drug and two counts of manufacturing less than half an ounce.
"El Wingador" last won Philadelphia's Wing Bowl in 2005 when he gnawed through 162 chicken wings. Wing Bowl was started as a way for Philadelphia sports fans to blow off steam before the Super Bowl.
