Dear Cory Booker, We Need to Talk about this ICE Policy

July 8, 2020

Dear Mr. Cory Booker,

I have been a New Jerseyan my whole life, and I've always loved and appreciated how much of a melting pot this state is. Nearly 1/4 of the residents in this state are immigrants1, and they are vital people both for our commerce but also our culture as a state. Recently, immigrant and nonimmigrant residents alike have been targeted by the current administration, ...

Are our elected leaders preparing our community well for it? I say no.

As a long-time resident of our town, I have more questions than I have answers about what our current officials are doing:

Why don’t we have an elected environmental commission with OPEN Meetings?

Why did the Mayor and Town ...

Thank You, Piscataway Police Officers!

Just wanted to give a huge thank you to Piscataway Police. Tonight my phone alerted me there was activity going on in my backyard. Turns out, it seems like someone was trying to break into my work truck. 

I can't thank PPD's response time and professionalism enough! Once called, I would say the response time was no longer than 3 minutes. If the thieves had been successful in ...

Celebrating the Communities We Build

So, you may have noticed I missed a week, which is odd because I had something written, not this but something. My excuse is this – COVID has warped my sense of time, I go to make my Thursday call on Tuesday then on Friday I wonder how I missed Thursday. Holidays have the potential to go unnoticed too – I’m horrible with dates so forgetting my own birthday is fairly easy even in ...

But you’d be wrong to think that this isn’t much at all. This is a momentous occasion. You have done what no generation of ...

Carved In Stone

A Monumental History Lesson

On July 4, 1863, Union soldiers began the arduous and grizzly task of burying over 7,000 dead bodies in trenches and shallow graves. Later, as rains had washed away the ground cover re-exposing the stench of blackened and gnarled limbs, the town of Gettysburg took on the task of exhuming the bodies and consecrating them in the newly created Soldiers National ...

Are You a Prisoner of Your Own Life? Three Steps to Free Yourself.

Have you seen the movie, All I Wanna Do? It’s a relatively unknown film from the late 1990s. On the surface, this movie about an all-girls boarding school in the early 1960s is fluff. But as the story develops, we learn that some of the girls are there because they are rebels, hard to handle, there because their parents didn’t know what else to do. Fluff, fluff, ...
