In Westfield, NJ, a Dream to Help People Live Better Through Food at Fettle + Fare

March 17, 2019

Opening a new restaurant is rarely an easy task, and for Fettle + Fare owner Amanda Vargas, who has multiple sclerosis and is legally blind, the journey to create her shop in Westfield, NJ, was extra challenging. 

It was here that she created a space that is more to her than a place to find tasty, nutritious food. It’s a symbol of growth and helping others ...

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 ...

Jersey Shore Outdoors: LBI Fishing Update

March 10, 2019

STAFFORD - We are several days into March, and the month sure has roared in like a lion. The water temperatures have remained low and need to see an increase of several degrees before the striped bass become active.

The big news of the past few days has been the revelation that the New Jersey summer flounder regulations have been pretty much set. I understand that there is still one ...

Scandal!

Being the mom of two little ones I must admit writing this monthly column, while being something I thoroughly enjoy, often ends up getting done last minute.  Month after month I find myself racking my brain for something to write about two days before I need to submit.  Silver lining time: earlier this week news broke of the college admissions cheating scandal and suddenly my ...

It’s been over eight months since the Berkeley Heights teacher contract has expired.
