The Bells by Richard Harvell
The Bells is a story that covers the past, the present and the future mainly by reference. Musically based, it is the story of a little boy born to a deaf mother who never spoke a word to him. His mother was the person who rang the loud church bells from the belfry by hitting them with a mallet. The townspeople had difficulty with the sounds and covered their ears whenever the pealing sounded. One might say they thought she was bats in the belfry!

Assemblywoman Connie Wagner
Assemblywoman Connie Wagner on Friday announced she plans to introduce legislation to prohibit a type of natural gas drilling that can endanger drinking water by blasting water diluted chemicals into shale rock, breaking it apart to free natural gas. Wagner said she intends to introduce a bill on Thursday to prohibit in New Jersey the drilling known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking .
“Everyone agrees we have to work to find alternative energy sources and reduce our reliance on foreign oil, but I don’t see how anyone can support pumping chemical-laced water into the ground,” said Wagner (D-Bergen).
