  • GOP tax-cut plans extreme

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from the Newark Star-Ledger on Republican presidential candidates’ tax proposals and was initially published on Feb. 29.

    While we are all amused by the vulgar pie fight that is the Republican presidential field, it’s easy to overlook the taxonomy of pain their candidates would impose on the American electorate.

    Many helped with cemetery restoration

    Many I read the article about Carol Wawrychuck and her journey to “bring dignity” to the cemeteries at the Behavioral Health Institute and it is indeed gratifying that information about these cemeteries is now being read by folks in this community.

    We were not impressed, to say the least, but both of us learned to respect this training, particularly when we became parents.
