ROSELLE, NJ - The love of Girl Scout cookies has a long tradition in our country. From 1917, when girls made the cookies and mothers volunteered as technical advisers, right up until today, with the cookies being made in a factory, the one common factor is the experience the girls have of selling these familiar treats.

The Girl Scouts in Roselle held their first-ever “Cookie Rally” on Jan. 11 at the First Presbyterian Church. The rally kicked off the start of their annual cookie drive.

“The cookie rally is an event that combines learning and cookie fun so girls are inspired and prepared to have a great cookie season,” said Naima Ricks, service unit manager, who hosted the event. “Research shows that girls attending cookie rallies have much higher cookie sales than those who don’t. Certainly, they have more confidence in their sales and lots of fun.”

Every time you buy a box of cookies, you help girls learn important skills in goal setting, decisionmaking, money management, people skills and business ethics all while helping them better themselves and their communities. They learn, earn, and have tons of fun.

If you would like to order but don’t know a scout, you can be on the look for booth sales that will be taking place mid-March around town.

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.
