Thank You From Santa Claus

To The Editor:

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the children of all ages who came out to see me at the Holiday Celebration in Scotch Plains this past Sunday.  It was great to see so many people come out on a beautiful day.   I had a lot of fun meeting the nearly 300 children and their families.    

I want to thank the many people who made my visit possible.  Thanks to the Scotch Plains Fire Department, Department of Public Works, and Recreation Department for helping to set up the event and also allowing it to run smoothly.  Thank you to the Scotch Plains Police Department for keeping everyone safe.  Thanks also to Melanie Smith and the Brownies from McGinn School for leading the crowd in some holiday classics.  A special thank you goes to Deputy Mayor Gialanella for lighting the beautiful Christmas tree in Alan Augustine Park.

A special thank you goes to SPBPA President Lisa Mohn of Apple Blossom Flower Shop for planning the event.  Lisa’s tireless efforts have made the event a highlight of the holiday season for many years.  Thanks also go to the rest of the volunteers of the Scotch Plains Business and Professional Association, in addition to all the event sponsors, for helping to make the day a wonderful success.  

I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season.  Don’t forget my cookies (chocolate chip or peanut butter) and milk (1% please – Mrs. Claus says I need to lose some weight) on Christmas Eve!  And please don’t forget the carrots for the reindeer.

Sincerely,

Santa Claus

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.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

April 18, 2018

Prom can be one of the most exciting times for your teenager but at the same time one of the most stressful. 

It can also be very stressful for parents as they prepare themselves to accept that their teenager is graduating and soon going away to school, while planning a weekend away after prom night. Going to the Shore for the weekend or somewhere overnight has become more of the ...
