ROSELLE, NJ - WHO YOU GONNA CALL FOR ARTS AND SCIENCES? The New York City Ghostbusters, a fan and charity organization that supports causes related to literacy, arts/sciences, and cancer research, visited Roselle's Harrison Elementary School on April 30th for the school's Spring Open House and Science Fair. 

Third grade students displayed their work on the second floor called “Adaptation Nation” where they had been studying animals that have survived and those that are now extinct. 

Displays of animals like the whooping crane showing the size of its wing span; as well as different types of elephants, both African and Asian, and the adaptation between the two showing that, while both have wrinkles, the ears and trunk are different on each. The displays are part of the schools Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Program.

“It’s a group collaboration and a lot of work, but every single child can do it,” said teacher Marybelle Espin. “At the end of the day it was worth all of their smiles.”

While Espin was upstairs showing the students work, another Espin, her son Ryan Espin, a New York City Ghostbuster, was downstairs working with the team showing the students and their families how slime is created and many other Ghostbuster secrets. 

Along with the Ghostbuster presentation, other students science projects were also display.

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.
