To my fellow Fanwoodians:

We have a lot to be thankful for here in Fanwood.  While many of our fellow New Jerseyans are still struggling with the loss of their homes and possessions as a result of Hurricane Sandy, all of our homes are standing and we came through the storm in relatively good shape. For those who did suffer damage to their homes and businesses, disaster aid is available by visiting the FEMA centers in Plainfield or Springfield, or by applying on line.

I am thankful that no one in our town was injured.  I am thankful that we have such dedicated public servants, paid and volunteer, who worked so hard to keep us safe before, during and after the storm.  I am thankful that our residents were resourceful, patient and concerned about their neighbors.

From my family to yours, may you have a happy and safe Thanksgiving and I hope you'll join me in enjoying the holiday season that's ahead.

Sincerely,
Colleen Mahr

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in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.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