Why ‘Kudos’ for Schmelz on Highgate Terrace Reconstruction?

Once again I feel the necessity of pointing out a significant inaccuracy in your paper’s reporting on Bergenfield. Last week you did a story on the reconstruction of Highgate Terrace (“Highgate Terrace: The Work Has Begun,” April 20, 2016) and the story begins with kudos for the mayor. The mayor has never had anything to do with getting the Highgate Terrace reconstruction project under way or completed. In fact, he used this project to attack Councilwoman Kornbluth in a campaign piece.

You are a newspaper, and newspapers are supposed to report facts. If you choose to ignore facts and editorialize, then please head the...

Let’s Return to the Constitutional Track

This super-charged election season provides all Americans the incredible opportunity to use the leverage of their vote to prevail on Congress to set our nation back onto the Constitutional Track, which we left due to an unconstitutional ruling by the US Supreme Court in 1962. The long slide toward totalitarianism began when the Court ruled, in Engel v. Vitale, that “public schools” were actually “government schools,” and erected a “wall” separating the education of children from faith and family values.

By transferring control of America’s children to government educrats and allowing children to be indoctrinated with values often...

‘Thank You’ to Chai Lifeline

Regarding “In Englewood This Shabbat, ‘C’ Is for Chai Lifeline” (March 31, 2016), the Jewish Link carried a front-page article written by Bracha Schwartz that was inspiring, joyful and informative. Having heard Lori Schlakman speak on Shabbat and seen Chai Lifeline in action over the entire Shabbat the takeaway is one of gratitude. There are remarkable people in this world, and this past Shabbat our community was honored to meet way over 50 of them. The most important lesson for all of us to learn from is that there are no divisions, no judgments, no concern about the way you are and the way you follow Judaism. Chai Lifeline is there for all. Our...
