JoAnn Fitzsimmons "I am proud to be a lifelong resident"

I want to thank my family, friends, the Goldberg Team and everyone who made calls, walked with me, attended functions and mostly voted for me. I lost but I won. I won because I was able to meet so many new residents in our ...

Gov. Phil Murphy Sued by Federal Government: Says Governor is ‘Jeopardizing Public Safety’

MIDDLETOWN, NJ - The United States Attorney General is sending a not so subtle message to Middletown resident Governor Phil Murphy on his penchant to ignore federal immigration enforcement - knock it off.

The Heart of a Friendship

To have a friend and be a friend is what makes life worthwhile. ~Unknown

February is the month of the heart, the time when we celebrate love. We buy chocolate, flowers, jewelry, and greeting cards to profess our undying love to that special someone. But, in all the hoopla of the season, perhaps we forget to honor the affection provided by the people that sustain us and enable us to thrive ...

Spend Valentine’s Day with the Love of Your Life...You!

­

I was watching television recently when it happened … I saw the first commercial for the Valentine’s Day diamond collection – you know, the gift that every woman will treasure. As I listened to the music and watched as the camera panned the romantic setting, waves of emotion overcame me like a tsunami. At that moment, in my mind, everyone in the world was in a loving, ...

The Adults in the Room

My house was recently designated as being “teen free”.

This is because my youngest two children just turned 20. They are twins. They are both in college, away from home. I only physically see them when they come home on breaks.

Turning 20 means they have run out of youthful brand names. After spending a lifetime transitioning from infants to toddlers to kids to tweens to teens ...

LIV and Let LIV

Sunday is the big game.

And I’m not talking about the Impeachment Bowl, where the Democrat Donkeys in blue face the Republican Elephants in red in Washington’s Gridlock Stadium to play out some unsportsman-like sign stealing controversy committed during the 2019 Ukranian World Series.
