ROXBURY, NJ - Roxbury High School students can stay home Friday night, flop on the couch and fall asleep with the TV on. Or they can pay a few bucks, be "put to sleep" and do weird stuff while sitting in front of a couple hundred fellow students in a gymnasium.

The latter might not sound like the better choice, but there's an upside: Doing so will help kids with cancer.

For the third time, Staten Island, N.Y. "speed hypnotist" John Cerbone will be performing in Roxbury to help Roxbury High School students raise money for the Four Diamonds Mini-THON to benefit children with pediatric cancer. The performance, sponsored by the Roxbury High School Interact Club, will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Eisenhower Middle School gymnasium. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Tickets will be $7 at the door or $5 in advance, said Roxbury Rotary Club member Steve Alford, noting that people wanting to be placed on the advanced sales list need to email him at alfordfamily5@optonline.net.

There will be snacks and beverages for sale and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to The Roxbury High School Mini-THON Club. The club is sponsoring the upcoming Mini-THON event which raises money to help fight pediatric cancer in conjunction with Penn State University’s Thon weekend.

Alford said Carbone, when contacted, was happy to do the show. "I called and asked if we could have his services again," he said. "I told him what cause was and he was happy to help out. He even lowered his fee to $500 so more money can go to the Mini-THON which is trying to raise its proceeds from the $50,000 raised last year to $100,000 this year." 

Alford also made a point of thanking Eisenhower Middle School Principal Dominick Miller for offering the auditorium for the event.

June 10, 2018

Dear Editor,

Much of the debate is based on emotion rather than reasoned thought.

I think that exploration in three areas needs to be more thoroughly discussed and debated. The first is ...
