SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Scotch Plains Public Library will feature the photography of Fred Rossi from Dec. 1 to Dec. 29. Rossi, who has traveled extensively during the last three decades, will display 45 photographs of some of the places he has visited, including London, Rome, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Berlin, Edinburgh, Florence, Stockholm and Reykjavik.

"I hope they convey at least a small degree of the great affection I have for the people and places over there," Rossi said. "Every time my plane zips down the runway toward take-off, I remind myself how fortunate I am to travel to places I dreamt of seeing when I was younger."

"I remember in the mid-1980s spotting a book of aerial photographs of Paris. On its cover was a photo of the two islands situated in the Seine, and I told myself right then that I had to see that place in person -- and I did, for the first time, in 1991," said Rossi, who has returned to Europe multiple times since then. "I’ve seen the fjords in Norway, hiked a glacier in Iceland, seen Michelangelo's David, heard about the Monster as we drove past Loch Ness, and set foot in my mother country of Poland."

Sinai or Sanctuary?



And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...

Former Cranford Mayor Endorses Nick Scutari for Democratic Chair

February 17, 2018

Dear Editor:

Having Senator Scutari lead the (Democratic) party would certainly put Cranford in a good position for resolving the issues we face such as gun control, flood mitigation and public safety.

Union County is made up of urban and suburban communities, that we need to protect. The stronger our communities are, the stronger the diversity and our being connected will be.
