Tribula & McComber share passion for dentistry with patients
Tucked away into the quiet Candlewood Commons is the dental office of Tribula & McComber Dental Associates. Since 1989 patients have been coming to see Dr. David Tribula and more recently his partner Dr. Nathalie McComber for their wide range of services. Working together the pair have strived to make going to the dentist comfortable for their patients. Tribula said he had worked in Wall before finding his first location in the Route 9 complex. "Howell has been very good to me," he said. "It has a great patient base and lovely people." Having worked in the town for so long he said he is now seeing not only his original patients but also their children and in some cases grandchildren. "I tell everyone I have 2000 best friends," he said. …

Also owns Ivy League
When he agreed to buy The Chapter House last year Tom Jaspan knew owning two restaurants in town would present its own set of challenges. He had no way of knowing that one of those challenges would be Hurricane Sandy which closed the Route 9 north restaurant for a few days and his original Route 9 south Ivy League for more than a week. After cleaning up from the powerful storm Jaspan said his time has been spent fixing up the restaurant. He said he hopes to make it a place to enjoy for customers who have frequented there for more than two decades as well as attracting new customers. The two restaurants were originally opened by longtime business owner and former Chamber of Commerce President Cory Wingerter. Before buying The Chapter House…

When you include all of the flavors, varieties, number of items (SKUs), that totals over 300 products. “Based on every measure we have considered, it is clear that the simplicity and relevance of a seasonal list where prices are locked in for several months works for our customers,” Wegmans President Colleen Wegman said. “And, it is not just a way to budget and save money; it’s also a tool for planning a healthy meal.” As with previous lists, selections in meat, seafood, produce, grocery, dairy, bakery, frozen foods, and deli are included…

Business community looks to work with governing body for growth
At the last meeting of the Howell Township Council there was a sense of cooperation when members of the Howell Chamber of Commerce addressed the members on the dais.

Local restaurant brings quality food to unique location
When Marriner's Tavern opened in 1747 the Revolutionary War was still just under 30 years away and Howell was not even a blip on the map.
