Letter: More Work to do on School Safety in Westfield

November 14, 2019

Thank you to everyone who supported me in my bid for school board. I’d like to Congratulate, Amy Root, Brendan Galligan, and Michael Beilen on their re-election.

One thing that should be done immediately is to treat all levels of ...

Om About Yoga

In the 2017 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) the number of American adults participating in yoga grew from 9.5% in 2012 to 14.3% in 2017. There’s Bikram, Hatha, Iyengar, and yes, even goat yoga. It can be overwhelming trying to decide if yoga is right for you.

On the Other Side of the Border

November 7, 2019

The children kept hugging us. They just wanted hugs. They wanted to be seen, to be loved, to feel safe. It’s odd — we teach our children to not talk to strangers, and yet when we entered the Shelter de Leona Vicario they ran to us, grabbed our hands and wanted to play. My Spanish is limited and their English was non-existent, but they kept telling us their names ...

Is My Kid Under Too Much Academic Pressure?

We live in a culture driven by competition and perfectionism — where success is defined by status, performance, and appearance.

Both children and parents are exposed to these pressures daily and respond to such pressures, whether we are aware of it or not. The truth of the matter is that this is the nature of the competitive world we live in, and that may not be changing anytime ...

Sewer Inspections – Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

You probably never think about your sewer system, until something goes wrong. But the time to find out if a sewer is faulty or needs repair is before a leak or backup occurs, not after.

In fact, regular sewer inspections are vital for any house over 20 years old. Older homes are usually built on aging clay pipes that are more vulnerable to root intrusion, but even newer homes may be ...

'A Doll's House Part 2' Makes Timeless Claims at Summit Playhouse

SUMMIT, NJ – You wouldn’t think a follow-up to Henrik Ibsen’s play about Nora Helmer in 19th century Norway would be especially relevant today.

But the smart, funny sequel by Lucas Hnath has much to say about marriage, the cost of independence, abandoning one’s family and other issues that ring true. When Nora insists that marriage won’t exist in 20 or 30 years, ...
