Jeffrey Fields, Sr. for Piscataway School Board - Column J

Dedicating the past 25 years to Piscataway Township, working in the Department of Public Works has been extremely rewarding for me.  I have had the opportunity to learn first-hand what Piscataway residents want for our town.  As I prepare to retire, I believe that the best volunteer service one can do, to give back to our community, is to serve on the Board of Education.  We have a ...

Why are you running for re-election to the Piscataway School Board?

I have benefited from the kindness of others many times in my life. My entire education from kindergarten to Ph.D. did not cost my family or me any money, but it surely wasn’t free. It was paid for by others in the belief that somehow society would benefit from my education and I have been committed to making good on ...

All Inked Up and No Place To Go

I want a tattoo.  I am old enough to hang reading glasses around my neck and I want a tattoo. 

 

The question I keep asking myself is, why?  After a lifetime ignoring my skin, why now would I want to turn some weatherworn patch of scratches and scars it into an album cover?  This is not an easy thing to answer.  It delves deep within the psyche and brings up ...

Confidence is the Result of Experience

Most people say, “When I feel more confident, then I’ll…”  But confidence is not the starting point.  Confidence is the result of experience.  When you take action, plowing through the resistance, anxiety and fear of what lies ahead, that is how you build your confidence and your self-esteem.
 
Every one of us has experienced resistance around doing ...

No Tricks Here! Free, Online Halloween Treats for Kids

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 ...
