There is a travel version of that nightmare where you haven’t studied for a test, and there you are, preparing to take it. It’s when you're leaving on a trip abroad and suddenly realize you don’t have a passport. About 25 people took advantage to avoid that real-life nightmare by stopping in at the Alpine Township Center Saturday to apply for a passport without having to make an appointment. Alpine Township was one of only two local communities to participate in National Passport Day. Treasurer Jim Townsend's office was open from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. to help ease the process for those who can’t show up on a weekday. Participating in this national program for the first time, this program can be called a great success.
