Beth's Book Review

Educated by Tara Westover (Random House, 2018)   Close your eyes for a moment. Picture yourself sitting at your desk in the first grade. Did you like your teacher? What were you learning in school? Did you look forward to being with your friends in class and at recess? When each September came, were you sorry to see summer go, but excited at the prospect of a new school year? Did you love going to school? What if you had not been allowed to go? What if your mother had taught you and your siblings at home and you didn’t ...

Jaffe Morning Briefing

HAMILTON - There are nearly 11,000 people employed at NJ Transit, yet not one of them has the responsibility of opening the Hamilton train station each morning. Rather, NJ.com reports, that task is delegated to the people who work at Dunkin' Donuts. No sugarcoating here, NJ Transit freely admits that employees of the mega-coffee chain's location here have the key to the station doors and the responsibility for getting it open around 4 a.m. for early-bird commuters. Likely this is no big deal, until it is revealed that ...

I like Gov. Phil Murphy, but he's making a liar out of me. Me and millions of parents. For a couple of generations now, mothers and fathers have been warning children about the dangers of pot smoking. Now the governor comes along and tells them there is no Santa Claus. I’ve been warning my children about pot for 20 years. That’s not exaggeration. It started when my 35-year-old was a middle schooler and continues right up today. Armed only with anecdotal evidence, what I call the "science of ...

The Mommy's Review

I love Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays, especially since there is so much to do, and it’s so much fun for the kids. I also love that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Sure, you could go to the store and buy brand-new costumes and decorate your house like crazy, but it’s also a holiday you can do on a budget. Secondhand costumes purchased from Facebook swap groups? Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...

Walk With Us Into Sunshine

Even though we as Americans enjoy many freedoms and liberties that aren’t shared by people in our world community, one place we are certainly lagging in is maternal health. According to the Save the Children’s State of the Mothers report, the United States ranks last in ranking for maternal health for moms in developed countries. Here, a woman expecting a baby faces a 1 in 1,800 risk of maternal death.
