Descriptive Phrases

Missing Teeth

Years back, I was lamenting the number of empty storefronts in our hamlets to my friend and former Bedford Supervisor Lee Roberts. She responded — “missing teeth.” Those empty storefronts always reminded her of missing teeth. That term is always ringing around in my head when I notice vacant storefronts in town.

First Days in a New Town

Drawing the Line Between News and Content Marketing is Key to Publisher Credibility and Success

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ — Publishers invest significant time and financial resources in building their audience. No one has the right to have their content placed in front of the audience you’ve built.
