West Orange High School Senior Prom Marks Milestone for Community

May 19, 2014 at 9:19 AM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Another milestone in the lives of soon-to-be graduates at West Orange High School took place on Saturday at the Birchwood Manor in Whippany as hundreds of 12th-graders gathered for their Senior Prom.

(Editor's note):

It's hard to be objective when, as an editor, you have known many of these young men and women since they were kindergartners. We've watched them over the years as they have developed into scholars, athletes, musicians, and community activists.

This summer, many of them will head off to college away from home, enter the military, and embark upon new adventures and challenges. We parents, along with coaches, teachers, and administrators, grow misty-eyed as a new chapter begins, and all of West Orange should be proud of who these young people have become. They are sure to impact our world in a positive way.

The response to our request for photos was incredible, and since a a picture is worth a thousand words, take a look at where some of your tax dollars have gone as you view some prom pics from the West Orange High School Class of 2014.

As a rule I stay away from popular fads.  Politics included.

 

I find my views on the latest crazy trends that are sweeping the nation are usually wrong and completely out of touch with reality.  

 

For example, for years I have been predicting the imminent demise of cell phones and the internet.

 

Which is why it seems only appropriate that I expound on ...

Burial at Sea

As I plugged my phone into the outlet next to a shelf in the hotel bathroom, I had a fleeting thought that it was sort of an odd place for an outlet.  That was actually the last thought I had before my phone slipped out of my hands and fell directly below the shelf…

Into the toilet.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.
