ROSELLE, NJ - Many came out in support this weekend for the Graceful Hope Organization, which held its first annual walk in Warinanco Park to bring awareness to Ovarian Cancer. 

Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados, Assemblywoman Annette Quijano, Roselle Mayor Jamel Holley, Borough Council and Park and Recreation were supportive in helping to make this event a success.

Graceful Hope was founded in 2009, shortly after the passing of Grace Rocha on Dec. 12, 2008 and also in support of her daughter, Erika, who was diagnosed in early 2007 at the age of sixteen.

Graceful Hope initially began as a team of family and friends participating in the Annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women in NYC, walking in solidarity and raising funds to support women battling ovarian cancer.

With Erika’s passing on January 8, 2011 at the age of 20, they were devastated. Faced with two options, they could just mourn the loss of Grace and Erika, or they could do something about it. They chose to take action.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 22, 2018

After Bruce Paterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting freeholder I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
