WEST ORANGE, NJ – The monthly meeting of the West Orange Hispanic Foundation on April 1 will focus on high school education and the Hispanic community. The meetings are held at Trinity Church at 315 Main Street and the public is invited to attend.

“Most Hispanic parents who come to the WOHF meeting every month are very excited to hear about education,” he said. “This meeting is especially important for Hispanic families as high school is the last step that our children face before college.”

Last month Assemblyman John McKeon spoke to the group about the successes of the Hispanic community in New Jersey. “We also had Principal Ed Acevedo from Hazel School, who discussed tips on how to raise our kids,” said Rodriguez.

WOHF’s 2nd Latin night is being planned for June 18 and their 2nd Hispanic Foundation Party is being organized for on July 30, both at OSPAC .

Rodriguez says last year’s events had more than 18 hundred people at each party. This year’s are planned to be bigger. “We will re direct the party to the entire Hispanic community for the Essex County,” he said. The parties include Hispanic Salsa , Merengue and Mariachi bands.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
