May 17, 2019

NEW BRUNSWICK –  It was scheduled to last an hour and a half. It lasted just over 20 minutes.

Want to End Cannabis Prohibition? Vote Ron Rivers.

May 13, 2019

Last week, Politico New Jersey reported that the proposed cannabis legalization bill that has the the support of a majority of New Jersey residents is unlikely to be passed during this legislative session.

The reason?  Political infighting.  Quite simply, our elected representatives are ignoring the will of the people they were chosen to represent and instead are allowing petty ...

Serious About Fighting Climate Change? Vote Ron Rivers.

Speak Up Now - It’s up to the NJDEP to protect our health, safety and environment from the NESE Project with Compressor Station 206 by June 5

May 8, 2019

Though FERC’s definition of “need” for the NESE Project is only based on economics, under the National Gas Act, and since National Grid has subscribed to purchase all the gas that this Project would deliver, it is not unexpected that FERC issued their Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the NESE Project on May 3.

Even though the FERC claims that the impacts ...

Foxes Herald Nature’s Resurgence in Suburban New Jersey

For most of my life the only time I saw a red fox it was probably a raccoon. They have those same glow-in-the-headlights silvery eyes.

But a few years ago, I began to see a once-rare piece of roadkill with greater frequency. No matter how flattened the rest of the fox was, it’s bushy-tail would blow around in the highway draft of cars and trucks as they raced past.

I assumed the ...

A Merciless Mother's Day: All Hell Breaks Loose on "Game of Thrones"

For the first time in eight seasons, I am torn as I embark on my second-to-last “Game of Thrones” recap and review.

In honor of all those we lost on Sunday and for the sake of maintaining loyalty to the characters whom I have devoted so much time and energy to over the last several years, I’m going to do my best to keep my opinions on the quality of the writing at bay for the ...

"Game of Thrones" Delivers Promise of Fire and Blood as Last War Begins

It took four weeks, but it finally hit me during Sunday’s traumatic episode that the greatest television series that ever was or will be is not only coming to an end, but an inevitably tragic one. And then, a week after HBO spent $15 million on a historic, record-breaking battle, a Starbucks coffee cup was left on screen…

Some comic relief, I suppose, after the emotional ...

New Jersey Date Night: Ice Cream, You Smile

Medical Tips from Etheridge Family Medicine - Prostate Screening

May 13, 2019

SOMERSET, NJ - As we get older, it is even more important to schedule routine physical exams with your general physician.

Men over the age of 40 years old are at increased risk for problems with their prostate, which is a small walnut-sized organ that produces seminal fluid. Due to its location, men with an enlarged prostate may experience problems with their bladder functioning.

If you are ...

Meet The Measles

I am not sure if I ever had measles. I know I had gerbils. And a hamster once. But I don’t recall ever having measles.

Of course, measles aren’t small furry animals or some popular Hasbro toy that is in short supply around the holidays. The Measles are not a Korean Pop boy band or an annoying TV sitcom family. Measles are not a breakfast cereal or small colored candies that fizz in ...
