Dear Editor,

As a homeowner near Shackamaxon Country Club, I heard loud music originating from the club during a few weekends in July, and the music was playing late in the evening.  

The Shackamaxon Country Club website notes "Live Music" on Saturdays by the pool from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Unfortunately some bands have continued playing well after 7:00 p.m. My neighbors have young children and I'm sure they have trouble putting the kids to bed when loud music is playing.

I'm glad the golf club continues to exist, and I support the new 55+ development area and the new access road from Lamberts Mill Rd. The neighborhood has been supportive of the Club and the new development through these years of construction.

I would urge the Club and the new development community, The Enclave, to provide due consideration to their neighbors, and their desire for a quiet, peaceful neighborhood.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson 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.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
