Throughout the course of this BOE campaign I have met many wonderful people from different backgrounds, all contributing to our community. Whether they support a civic or charitable organization, pay taxes, raise families or work at or own a business, each are valued. Some of our neighbors have college degrees and some do not. Each person is equally important nonetheless. Sometimes though, this ...

Final Thoughts on the Referendum

I have no doubt there is a space shortage, no doubt something needs to be done and no doubt the Board has done their due diligence. However I respectfully believe that we can do better than this plan. The cost here far outweighs the benefits. We are facing difficult times ahead as a community so taking time to get this right is critical.

My concerns with the current plan are:

It does not ...

The Proposed Nutley School District Referendum: Other Options?

Many numbers were shared at the last couple Board meetings, one in particular was 146. We were informed that our district has registered 146 new students (outside of those entering kindergarten*) this school year and that school staff was working hard to place these children in buildings already at capacity.

(Penguin Books, 2017)

 

Cake or death? If you are a fan of the British comic/actor Eddie Izzard, you probably own a teeshirt with a blue cupcake on it with one of Izzard's signature lines from his fabulous standup routines. To see Eddie Izzard in concert is an experience in hilarity that one ...

The Mommy’s Review - Welcome back, water bottles!

Well, the kids are firmly back in school, and one of my priorities this year is for everyone to stay dry! No, not in the potty training sense! What I mean is that I’m tired of taking out soggy folders and wet assignments from their backpacks! I can’t tell you how many times my kids came home with wet lunchboxes and school bags this past school year. Their reusable water bottles just ...

When the NFL Rules Don't Apply

Just like every other New York Jets fan, I'm still stunned days after Austin Seferian-Jenkins scored a touchdown  against the New England Patriots, only to have the call reversed.
