The United States Fistball Association is looking for young men and women under the age of 18 who are interested in competing as part of the U.S. National Team, said U.S. Fistball Association President Bob Feid.

With fistball's similarity to volleyball, athletes experienced in volleyball are well-suited and able to learn the technique and rules very quickly. However, anyone under 18 interested in participating is welcome.

Tryouts are being held at the Roxbury High School gym, 1 Bryant Dr, Succasunna, with indoor practices continuing until spring when they move outdoor to the Swim and Sport Club on Emmans Road, also in Roxbury.

Anyone interested should email Feid at bobf2@optonline.net for the full tryout and practice schedule.

"Roxbury is excited to be selected as the first United States community to host the U18 World Fistball Championship," said Roxbury Township Manager John Shepherd.

April 17, 2018

ROXBURY, NJ – She lost her 10-year-old son three years ago in a boating accident on Lake Hopatcong, but Laurie D’Amico is sure her beloved Christopher speaks to her all the time. It’s subtle but firm, she says; messages that come as sparks of recollection, inspiration or intuition.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
