@ Your Library

Whether you are new to Summit or a long-time resident, knowing the history of your community and its landmarks ties you more closely to your home town. You can start your journey into Summit’s history right on the library website. Did you know that Summit was originally called Dutchman’s Gap and its hills served as a lookout during the Revolutionary War? Colonial soldiers stationed at Hobart Gap watched the New York harbor and built a fire in a log pyramid to signal George Washington in Morristown. These facts and more are ...

Ain't That Grand?

As soon as Small Business Saturday arrived late last month, the holiday season officially kicked off in Summit, a town which many have described as 'Norman Rockwell picturesque'. “To see locals and others from towns from around the area flock to the area to shop and dine creates such a great vibe in the town,” says Assistant General Manager Jimmy Thornton. “My favorite time of year at the hotel is when we light the fireplace. The lobby and vibe of the hotel takes on a traditional feel that only ...

Are You Ready for Life?

If your son or daughter is turning 18, here are a few things you need to know: If you have an UGMA/UTMA savings account for your child, did you know those assets are his/her legal property and once that instrument matures (most often 21 years old or 18, if you designated that at time of account creation), those assets are at your child’s disposal with no restrictions or limitations? What to do? We have strategies to help parents work with their children to make sure their accounts are used in the way intended - as a ...

Dad in the Box

I am an artist.  It says so on my T-shirt. My colorful shirt, which significantly inflates my position in life, confers great status.  For one, it announces that I am a musical performer at the up and coming Montclair Jazz Festival.  This separates me from the thousands of other festival goers who only get to enjoy a great day of music, not play it.   More importantly, wearing my Artist T-shirt allows me access backstage where I can securely store my tarnished trombone while I also volunteer at the beer garden tent ...

As if driving during nasty, cold conditions is not enough of a challenge, having 'car trouble' in the wintertime can be about as much fun as the farcical examples used in a satellite television provider commercial that pokes fun at the cable companies... you know, like getting paper cuts on your tongue, getting your arm caught in a vending  machine, spilling hot coffee on yourself, getting caught in a turnstile that doesn't turn and using wet grocery bags that rip apart at the bottom. Fun as in, not ...

Point View WealthPoints

The latest Star Wars movie was a flop relative to expectations, but the epic drama of Global Trade Wars lives on.  Tariffs are terrible for you and me. If a tariff is placed on goods and services within a certain industry, companies will try to pass on the cost to the consumer by increasing prices. If unsuccessful, profit margins will be squeezed. A government’s attempt to be protectionist in the short term, ultimately becomes a tax and impedes consumer spending in the long run. How Did We Get Here? Attempting to forecast the ...
