Program Saves Seniors Time and Money During Transition to Independent Living
Heritage Pointe of Teaneck has introduced a three-prong program to help seniors interested in moving to the full-service rental retirement community to take immediate occupancy and sell their homes. The program features a deferred payment plan, which allows seniors to move to Heritage Pointe while their homes are still on the market. Under the arrangement, new residents can pay half of their rent each month and defer the remaining 50 percent until they sell their houses.

place the Saturday immediately prior, and will include a heavy dose of Irving Berlin’s best loved music as well as stirring renditions of the songs that led us into battle and saw us return home again.

McGuire, IBEW President John DeBouter and Paramus Mayor Jim Tedesco who brought Haley, his granddaughter, down the runway. In addition, we had Rotarians Betsy Thomason and Glenda Campaniola. All of the above were introduced by Co-Chair Valerie Coniglio who explained their fashions.

David A. Hecht of Metro Funding Corporation of Paramus (a citizen of Closter, NJ) is facing stiff legal action from WestLB, a European commercial bank based in Düsseldorf in Germany. It appears that WestLB was successful in Federal court this week in convincing the US District Court Southern District of New York in "a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction preventing defendants Metro and MFC from removing any funds from their bank accounts or transferring any other assets, requiring Metro and MFC to preserve and turn over to WestLB all documents relating to the Loan and Mortgage Loans involved herein, and requiring Metro and MFC to provide an accounting to WestLB with respect to the Loan and the Mortgage Loans."

Q: I need to close up the pass-through between my kitchen and the living/dining room. I want to put a large sectional sofa against that wall and move the dining table to the other side of the room. The pass-through will look weird with the table gone. How can I close it up so it doesn't show? — Jeanne
A: It should be easy enough to put drywall over the opening on both sides. But you could be missing an opportunity.

We are all concerned about our schools and our rising school taxes. Most districts are facing a decline in state funding of 10 percent or more — which can be $3.6 million in real dollars. That's a lot of money, and we all wonder where it will come from.
Teachers are concerned about larger classes and less funding for teaching materials, salaries and lower educational standards.

Another winner published by Robert Rose, Inc. who seems dedicated to authors who offer simplified recipes with ample descriptions and cooking tips. George Geary is the author of this book and offers the benefit of his years of experience, cooking knowledge and the ability to offer substitutes for the original recipe.

Whenever I am at a gathering of friends, or at home with the family, and someone asks what everyone else would like to order, the first thing that almost reflexively shoots out of my mouth is the word Blimpie. Blimpie is a large chain of coldcut sandwich shops. It originated in Hoboken, in 1964, and since then locations have popped up all across the U.S.
