Beth's Book Review

Tony’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani (Harper and Collins, 2018) When I was a teenager, dancing in my room to “Dancin’ Machine” by the Jackson Five or “Jungle Boogie” by Kool and the Gang, my father would, on occasion, poke his head into my room and query, “What are you listening to?” I knew that I was in for “the lecture,” how young people of my generation didn’t appreciate what good music was all about. Then he’d launch into the Gene Krupa, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, ...

Dad in the Box

There are lots of exotic places I would like to visit before I die. The far side of the moon is not one of them. But I understand that traveling to distant lands is a calling unique to the individual. It explains why there are people in the world who seek to explore the Mariana Trench or the Greenland Ice Sheet or Des Moines, Iowa. So I guess China has its reasons for going there. Despite the distance, the far side of the moon is actually easy to get to. Even though it is not on Google Maps, or Google Earth for that matter, one simply ...

It's Yesterday Once More in Nutley

When Nutley Historian John Demmer wanted to get some help identifying local homes, he went to the best source possible…social media. He is interested in identifying as many Lambert built houses as possible in Nutley. Lambert, who was a prominent builder and influential Nutleyite, lived and worked in town. It is believed that there are more than 500 homes and buildings that were designed and built by Lambert and his ‘Nutley Realty company’. “Lambert is sort of an unsung hero in ...

Jaffe Morning Briefing

TRENTON - When you find yourself paying $10 for some pancakes and a cup of coffee, thank state lawmakers. On one hand, news that the state will be steadily raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024 is tremendous for many struggling families. But someone has to pay for it. That, of course, will be the consumer. So, yeah, breakfast will be getting a little pricey at your local diner, and the management may decide to keep on one less cook for the morning rush to save money. But our state can proudly proclaim it finally has a ...

Pro Staff Physical Therapy & Dynamic Hand Therapy

As a musician, there is no greater feeling than losing yourself in your instrument. However, playing any instrument frequently can lead to developing a repetitive strain injury. This can cause pain and make it difficult to play the music you love. When faced with a repetitive strain injury, treating it quickly and efficiently is the best way to help you return to playing without pain. It is equally as important, though, to take the appropriate steps to prevent these injuries from occurring. I myself am both a musician and an occupational ...

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 ...
