Response to Jim Sandham on Land Purchase

March 8, 2019

It is almost laughable to watch these Republican Local Office Holders, both past and present, proclaim their strong advocacy of Open-Space when the opposite is true. Jim Sandham takes credit for the work of previous Township Committees who actually bought and worked to preserve the 1,000 plus acres. I was on the Township Committee for 15 years and voted for every one of those acres long before ...

Irish Filmfest: Movies to Watch and Get Into the St. Patrick's Day Spirit

March 15, 2019

This time of the year, the bars will be needing more Guinness and corned beef, and the color green will be decorating many buildings.

For Parents Like Me, Pot Legalization in New Jersey is a Dilemma

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 ...

From a Backyard in Elizabeth, Chatham Man Shoots for the Stars

In those lonely hours of dribbling and inventing basketball tricks, Da Silva learned to command the giant orange orb ...

Jeff Bezos Could Single-Handedly Help Shape the Future of Newark

You’ve got to love Newark Mayor Ras Baraka’s latest move in the continuing marathon to lure Amazon’s second headquarters to his city.

The mayor wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post, the newspaper owned by Amazon gazillionare Jeff Bezos. In it, he makes yet another pitch for Newark, and thereby giving his emerging city a national stage.

Maybe now, people in his own state ...

Sandmann and Tramaglini: Raw Meat for the Media

So, the kid who went viral in that Lincoln Memorial confrontation is suing the Washington Post.

Good.

That might sound strange coming from a journalist. But what is happening to people like Nicholas Sandmann, the kid with the smirk on his face and the MAGA hat on his head, isn’t journalism.

It’s a pack of wolves tearing at raw meat. It’s playing with someone’s ...

Local News: Real Stories About Us

For a dozen years I was a news columnist at the state’s largest newspaper and in the decade prior to that, I was its editor in charge of all local news.

I semi-retired from that company in December and wrote a farewell column expressing gratitude for being able to make a living doing something I loved for more than 40 years.

In that continued spirit, here is my inaugural column for ...
