  • Instant fusion: Love and music

    By Beth Urech

    ver experience instant fusion with another human being? I recently did. I’m helping promote the Fifth Meadow City Music Festival coming up at the end of September. More than 20 groups will perform at our wonderful Plaza Park, the ballroom of the Plaza Hotel and JC’s New York Pizza.

  • Homeowners deserve better

    It’s a terrifying prospect: You find a house you like and make an offer on it. The offer is accepted, and you move forward on the closing process, buying title insurance and signing a mountain of paperwork for the mortgage on your new home.

I love you honey.” These were the words spoken by 38-year-old Tom Burnett 3,000 feet  in the air over the skies of Pennsylvania on the morning of Sept. 11, 15 years ago to his wife Deena who was having breakfast at home in California.

    Hillary ‘scandals’  overblown
    For over a year we’ve all heard about Hillary Clinton’s “scandals” and past mistakes. The entertainment media, formally called the news media, keeps dragging out these “errors in judgment” as proof she is barely qualified to be president. But what they never disclose is how these problems are the inventions of the opposing party.
