Father’s Day is this weekend and I’m sure children are hitting the stores (or are online) to find the perfect card or gift to show their appreciation for all the father figures in their lives. Celebrated since 1908, Father’s Day became a permanent holiday in 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed the law recognizing the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.

The day is ...

Dad Wins Big For Daughter

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, N.J.- Lori Bachman woke up to an empty house on Thursday morning. Not the norm, when she is usually the first one awake.

Knowing the first 100 people in the door would win Chic-Fil-A for a year, Julia Bachman was determined to be one of them. Her father , ...

“Wings over New Jersey” columnist Jack Elliott Memorialized Sunday

My walk to high school in Summit each day took me past a large brick compound called the New England Village Garden Apartments.  The buildings were rectangular and, except for white Colonial door mantels, they were otherwise nondescript.

The village was filled with older people, who wanted to stay in town after unloading their homes. Each day, kids like me would walk by, oblivious to the ...

Despite Gilded-Age Mansion in Elizabeth, the Sisters of St. Walburga Live Modestly

The mansion on North Broad Street in Elizabeth is out of the Gilded Age, the classic kind you see on Bernardsville Mountain, tucked away in Short Hills or on the Watchung ridge roads of Upper Montclair.

Its architect, C.H.P. Gilbert, built some of the grandest townhomes on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Park Slope in Brooklyn, for the turn-of-the-last century’s wealthiest elite, ...

Cari Mora by Thomas Harris

Cari Mora by Thomas Harris (Grand Central, 2019)

 

Hannibal Lecter . . . Just the name sends chills down one’s spine.

However, Lecter takes center stage in the masterpiece of horror fiction, Silence of the Lambs, ...

Tear Down that Wall!

Just those words have so much meaning. This week, Joan means them personally and in such a way as to begin to live in the present and not in the past, as she so often suggests. Think the best of others and that is what you could receive.

Joan talks about loving yourself this week, something we could all be a bit better at…read on and feel the love.

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and ...

Letter to the Editor: In Response to Passaic Valley Yearbook Entry

While I appreciate that these items (aside from the school, of course, which I understand is unavoidable) were removed from the tapinto.net article, many have already seen the face and name of this student posted across social media by parents and ...
