To all the parents out there, I'd like to ask you a question: What is your No. 1 fear for your children when they start to play competitive sports? I think I can guess that the answer would be: Injury. As a loving and caring parent, it's no secret that you wish your child could stay healthy while playing sports and staying active.

College Connection

One of our SAT prep students recently gained a lot of attention for being accepted to all seven of the Ivy League schools to which she had applied, as well as to Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.)

Moench's Musings

In our last article, we broached the subject of debt and the township’s reliance – or over-reliance – on debt to fund our yearly expenditures for items such as roads. So, ok, we want to reduce our reliance on debt moving forward, especially as the cost of borrowing is rising. What’s the solution? Well, there’s no magic wand we can wave to suddenly end our reliance on bonding.  We are not going to add $6 million to the township’s operating budget in one year because that would result in a ...

The Tutor's Corner

Remember when your elementary school child brought home an acrostic poem assignment? You might have helped them complete it for homework. With their first name as the poem’s title, each letter of their name described a quality or an interest unique to them. When sharing the poem, you had probably thought it was clever, cute, and sweet, and rightfully so!
