To all those who have helped us out, we think the world of you. We appreciate the time that you took out of your busy lives to answer our questions and render assistance.
Chief Harry Wilde - The head enforcer of law and order in the REAL Cranford, New Jersey, let Sergeant Widle give us a tour of the police station, allowed us to take pictures of whatever we needed, and interview his staff. Many props to him.
Detective Sergeant Harry Wilde - Sending a shout out to one awesome detective. He sat through eight hours of grueling questions, critiqued the original draft of the story, and took all the pictures we needed on his official police camera. He gave the team the inside scoop on searches, seizures, and arrests.
Detective Robert Merrill - as a graduate of the Reed School, he gave us significant assistance with the witness interviews
in the story.
Joanne Mullane - Director of Technology for the Cranford School District - need we say more? Gave us funding for books on obscure topics like CGI, PERL, and HTML, as well as development of pictures onto CD.
Michael D. Blasucci - Princiapl of Cranford High School - His office not only has the most comfortable chair in the entire building, but he has the only color scanner within a five mile radius. Gratitude for letting us use it. And we also appreciated access to the scanner. He was also one of the project's most enthusiastic supporters.
John Padilla - He braved the dangers of West End Place to follow up on this story. He also read a rough draft of the story, and aided with the promotion of the project in the Home News and Tribune.
C.H.S. Custodial Staff - Thanks for letting us into the computer room and putting off waxing the floors so that we didn't fall, thereby causing harm to ourselves and others.
