Admissions Abridged

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 procrastination has paid off!  The largest story on college admissions in years drops and provides a ready-made topic! I’m not going to rehash the ...

Atlantic Health System’s Morristown Medical Center has become the first hospital to implement the BEACON Advanced Energy Laser System, a unique tissue-sparing, CO2 laser-driven system which enables physicians to conduct complex surgeries in space-restricted areas of the body with greater accuracy and precision than ever before. While flexible fiber-based CO2 surgery has long been a method of safe and precise laser treatment for complex head and neck surgeries at Morristown Medical Center, the new BEACON Laser System from ...


The holidays are strange, partly due to the pressure of making things magical for everyone. Add to that a returning college freshman with a head bigger than a cannonball, and you know it can get very, very ugly. I had planned to write a piece about a priceless few minutes I spent with Blue and Dimples during Thanksgiving break, but as time got away from me and Thanksgiving has now slid into a New Year, I realize that that brief time, wondrous as it was, was just one remarkable moment in a holiday season of ups, downs, and ...

SUMMIT, NJ – A haunting,  memorable play, “The Glass Menagerie,” is given a warm, caring production at The Summit Playhouse. Under the direction of Arnold Buchiane, this Tennessee Williams play (his first notable success) weaves the story of a son, a mother and a daughter in their small shabby apartment in a corner of St. Louis in the 1930s. Gus Ibranyi as the son who wants to escape the dreariness of working in a warehouse with dreams of adventure. So he goes to the movies every night, where he can transport himself ...

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 35-year-old was a middle schooler and continues right up today. Armed only with anecdotal evidence, what I call the "science of ...

The Mommy's Review

I love Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays, especially since there is so much to do, and it’s so much fun for the kids. I also love that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Sure, you could go to the store and buy brand-new costumes and decorate your house like crazy, but it’s also a holiday you can do on a budget. Secondhand costumes purchased from Facebook swap groups? Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...
