Families of fallen military service members bear significant burdens from the loss of their loved one. Lives are changed forever. Aside from the emotional devastation, the financial hardships placed on such families can be difficult. Often, if a death occurs, a two-income household must make do with one income.

The Paramus Board of Health supports the efforts of the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) to raise awareness of osteoporosis and bone health during May, National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month. The theme for NOF’s 2010 is “Healthy Bones, Build Them For Life”.
Osteoporosis progresses as a symptomless disease characterized by bone loss and deterioration of the skeleton, leading to bone fragility and increased risk of fractures. It is defined as about 25% bone loss compared to a healthy young adult or, on a bone density test, 2.5 standard deviations below normal. Although everyone experiences some bone loss with age, few people realize that stooped posture (kyphosis), and loss of height (greater than 1-2 inches), are caused by vertebral fractures due to osteoporosis.

Q: We have such a small living room (12 feet by 13 feet). I don't know what to hang on the walls. Anything I put up might make it look crowded, but my husband says that it's too "minimalist" when bare. What do you suggest?
A: Your husband's maxim about minimalism carries truth. Less is often just less. Accessories exist to add color and interest to our environments. Hence, we expect to find works of art in every room. But that doesn't mean they can only be hung on a wall.

Bills protecting senior citizens and consumers, promoting bone marrow donation and pushing to bring a Super Bowl to New Jersey highlight the Assembly’s Thursday committee agendas. One measure would prohibit financial advisors from using misleading information to make it appear they have special certifications for advising senior citizens and retirees, while another bill would require retailers to charge consumers an advertised after-rebate price - rather than making buyers send in coupons or log on to manufacturer’s Web sites to claim their savings.
Also on tap is a measure prohibiting the sale of lottery tickets after the top prizes have been claimed.
