ROSELLE /ROSELLE PARK, NJ - It will be Roselle Rams vs Roselle Park Panthers on Thanksgiving Day, as both teams and communities all come together to celebrate 100 YEARS! 

The Roselle and Roselle Park Rotary brought together Team Captains, Players, and Coaches from both towns, to honor them at their bi-monthly breakfast meeting at the Anthony Amalfe Community Center in Roselle on Thursday morning. This particular breakfast is a Rotary Club tradition that is almost as old as the rivalry game itself.  

The Rotary carried on with regular business which also included induction of a returning member, Ed Witt, Assistant Branch Manager for Columbia Bank while waiting for the Roselle players to arrive.

While waiting, some joking went on with the usual sports banter such as "they were afraid to show up." They did show up, however, just a little fashionably late! Or, were they just making a special entrance? That we will never know! 

What we do know, is that everyone will be at Roselle Park’s Herm Shaw Field on Thanksgiving day at 10:30 a.m. and the winning team will take home the “Golden Shoe” trophy.

Highlights from the meeting and the football players and school representatives/coaches can be viewed below. 

The program also included Lonnie Allgood a retired NFL wide receiver who once played for the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, Allgood spoke about his foundation and talked to the players about their future and the importance of a good education. 

Allgood’s presentation can be viewed below.

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.
