Some of recent, widely read, stories are below:


*     In the early hours of Saturday, June 30, two Paterson firefighters responded to a call of a woman in labor. While transporting her to the hospital, their ambulance was hit and overturned. The well trained, and always prepared, EMTs didn’t miss a beat, and, despite the adversity they faced, continued to deliver care to the mother, as well as the newborn baby!


*     It has been said that Paterson’s renaissance will start with the Great Falls. The soon to launch trolley system will help transport residents and visitors from various spots in the city’s downtown to and from the national park, as well as the Paterson Art Factory


*     When Mayor Andre Sayegh was sworn in on Sunday, July 1, he invited Paterson poet Elizabeth Valverde an opportunity to recite a work she had penned in the days following his election. Valverde was kind enough to share it with our readers.


*     With calls for expanded opportunities for recreation for city residents continuing to mount, one couple stepped up and made a generous contribution that will give eight local ball fields a facelift..
